-3.9 can take someone 8 years to write a book but not that long for a song. I'd assume he probably started writing after he got sick. That caused him to leave the music scene
I'm not who you think I am.

As kids--didn't us sports fanatics have day-dreams of becoming superstars???
That emotion coupled with Abie passion for baseball was evident in "Joe Dimmagios Card" and "Ninth Man".
And If you are a true bukki in his songs --you'd know that "Country Boy", like Pepsi Meyers,  is about an All-Star athlete discovering his roots.
Aren't all his Journey songs about discovering another layer in our soul? "Atheist Convention in LA" and "Ride the train" are songs about "waking up and smelling the Java.!!!
The season of Pepsi Meyers sounds like a perfect Bar-Mitzvah gift...

I want to read this book, but I can't. I know I will just he hoping the Yankees lose and the team fails however possible.

If it were about any other team I could read it and go for the team.

The setting is in the year 2040, and Abie shows some creativity as to the advance of technology (Auto-UMP [an umping system that uses chips that are embedded in the balls, mitts, and players], personalized TV view [type into your remote the seat in the stadium that you would like to watch the game from] and other Einfaals).
One of my favorite parts of Dr. Middos 4 is him taking credit for all the inventions of the past 30 years.
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

The Yankees -- stirs up so much love/hate --No neutrality possible.

Dr. Middos -- was a long lost half brother to Dr. Emmet Brown of
Back to the Future fame.

They haven't played postseason baseball in 13 years! That's not enough failure for your nemesis?!
Oh right, you're from Cleveland
