For every champion’s record-setting season, there has been an equally memorable story of defeat. These teams and their shameful contributions to America’s national pastime have been a neglected topic in the annals of baseball history. Until now. You Stink! includes franchise origins, detailed stats, player profiles, photos, and more, as well as a collection of long-format essays in a “Hall of Shame” that recognizes some of the worst moments ever witnessed on a ball field.
Eric and I would like to share our continued thanks to everyone who purchased the Kindle version of “You Stink!” We made it all the way up to #9 on Amazon under Kindle for ‘Baseball Statistics’ and #105 out of 1,663 books in the overall ‘Baseball’ category. This, coupled with the fact that the print version made it up to #49 on Amazon’s Top 100 Best Sellers list for ‘Sports’ books, has left us both grateful and thrilled.Who knew a book about bad baseball would out-sell everything we’ve ever written? Although we are both working separately on our own projects, Eric and I have begun to draft our follow-up “Baseballs Could have Beens.” We are also booking our first speaking engagements of 2013 and already have several lined up.
