So many things happened yesterday. Not a lot of them were related to the Yankees, or baseball related, or even just news worthy. I'm just saying, it was a day that passed so a lot of things probably happened, right? Right. It's still way too early in the off season for any major moves to happ--Wait. The Comeback Player of the Year awards were announced and the winners are Matt Harvey of the Mets and Prince Fielder of the Rangers. Neither selection is a real surprise, and both are deserving (and possibly even the correct choices), yet because our very own Alex Rodriguez did not win, I'm saddened. In all honesty though, A-Rod was a long shot to win, especially with the terrible August he had and the fact that he was coming off a PED suspension, but it was nice that he was at least nominated and in the running. Shows how far he and his reputation have come this year. But that's about all that happened. Nothing els---Wait.
Seems we have our first big trade. Woo. Unfortunately, neither of the two teams involved are the Yankees so us Yankee fans are still left waiting for something to happen. However, this trade could just be the first domino that falls in a whole wave of trades and then all of a sudden Bryce Harper is a Yankee. This is a definite real possibility. Okay, no it's probably not, but nothing's really happening so my mind gets to wander.

It's so pretty.
Honorable Mod Mention
Matt P. wins because he's Proven himself worthy.
- Of all the non-animated Batman movies which one is your favorite?
- If you were Batman, what's one thing you would add to your utility belt that he probably doesn't carry? It doesn't have to be a weapon or a gadget.
Song of the Day
Batdance by Prince (Note: This link does not go to YouTube. Unfortunately the song video does not exist on there. You can still search the song on YouTube and listen to it, but you need to watch it for its glory.)
It's Batman Week on Pinstripe Alley. Today's song is one of the most ridiculous Batman related things ever created. It's so bad it's good. It was made for the 1989 Batman movie with Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson. Seriously, go take a few minutes and just watch it.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. Thoughts on A-Rod not winning Comeback Player of the Year?
