While we all wait for what Mike Lupica of the NY Daily News is calling "The A-Roid Show" this afternoon I wanted to take a minute to say hello.
If you hadn't noticed there is a new name listed among the Pinstripe Alley writers shown at the bottom of the front page. That's me.
If you recognize the moniker that's because I have been lead blogger over at Big Blue View, SBN 's New York Giants blog, for the past couple of seasons.
Some of you may also know that I have been writing about the Yankees for Bugs and Cranks, a fine baseball blog. I am thrilled to be bringing my Yankee thoughts here to Pinstripe Alley.
Hopefully, some of my friends from both Big Blue View and Bugs and Cranks will follow me here. And, hopefully, some of you will visit us at BBV -- if you don't do that already.
I am looking forward to it.
To get started, here are a couple of quick thoughts.
- Many of the Yankee players will be in attendance at the Rodriguez press conference today. Supposedly, they will be there to show support. None will ever tell you, but wouldn't you love to know what they really think of A-Rod?
- I might as well be upfront about which side of the Joba Chamberlain debate I am on. I believe Joba should start now and close once Mariano Rivera is gone. Here is what I wrote about this recently.
