I’ve always suspected Boston Globe Sports writer Dan Shaughnessy has a vested interest in the so-called Curse of the Bambino. And the latest news from Publisher’s Lunch newsletter does nothing to dispel that notion:

“Boston Globe sports columnist and author of The Curse of the Bambino Dan Shaughnessy’s book on the Red Sox/Yankees rivalry, focusing on the 2004 season and offering a new take on the legendary contest, to Susan Canavan at Houghton Mifflin, for publication in spring 2005….”

Gee, I wonder what the “new take” will be? (And what was Shaughnessy’s?)
