For as much as I hate the Yankees, and as much as I love sarcasm and wittiness, I was expecting to just adore this book - and I did love parts of it. Caple is a funny, funny man and there's just so much to mock about the Yankees organization - the evil empire of baseball whose owner fires people for taking their pre-approved Christmas vacation, fires and re-hires his manager umpteen million times and at one point actually recieves a lifetime ban from the Baseball only to have it lifted (wish it...more
The Devil Wears Pinstripes is a hilarious book about the Yankees. The author, Jim Caple talks about how bad the Yankees are and just makes fun of them. From their legendary players to their fans, there is always something wrong with the Yankees. For all you Yankee-haters this book is like a bible. In the end, you can take the Ultimate Yankees Quiz to see how much you know about "the worst team in the history of baseball."
I know just owning this book makes me a Horrible Yankees Fan but it's hilarious and I don't take it seriously.

Very funny, esp to non-Yankee fans (and even die-hard ones with a sense of humor!)

I thought the book was funny, with facts and satire. By page three I had already laughed out loud, and the last line of the book was, in my opinion, the funniest.
LOVED IT! Very interseting read for those who love to dislike the Yankees!

Pretty good, but some of Caple's gags get old after a while.
