When the Yankees named Aaron Boone as the team’s manager in early December, some likened him to a teenager receiving his driver’s license. After the club reeled in Giancarlo Stanton less than a week later, Michael Kay took the analogy a step further. “Boone is being handed the keys to his first car,” he explained, “and it’s a Lamborghini.”
I can relate to Boone now.
Earlier this week, I accepted an offer to step in as Pinstripe Alley’s managing editor. I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity. It’s humbling, really. I cannot begin to explain how exceptionally fortunate I am to have inherited such a robust community of Yankees fans. Whereas Brian Cashman delivered Boone a World Series-caliber roster, Tanya Bondurant provided me a blog rich in tradition and talent.
The site manager doesn’t make the community, though. Our writers, and you the readers, create this special platform. That’s been true since 2005. Over that time, the Yankees have had tremendous highs (hello, 2009) and bleak lows (that 2013 Opening Day lineup). This site, though, has been the constant. Considering how talented the Bombers look in heading into spring training, we’re lucky to have this community.
We have some exciting new plans in the works, too. I can’t get into too much detail yet, but expect to see PSA’s imprint all across the web. We will also continue to provide coverage from a variety of angles. The Yankees have a diverse fanbase, and we’re thrilled to offer something for everybody.
In the meantime, I encourage you to follow us on all of our social media channels. We’re active on Twitter, Facebook, and our recently re-launched Instagram page. Check back here for updates as well as our regularly scheduled Yankees content.
Stay tuned, as we’ve only just begun.
