Good Times…

Two good things happened in NY…the Yankees won and they found the missing cobra.

Yankees Make It

After what seemed to be a few weeks of uncertain play, the Yankees finally make it to the post season.

Don’t discount Tampa Bay either, because they are in the hunt and have a damn good team. If anything, they’ve been a pebble in the Yankees’ shoes.

Mets Done

Now that their season is over, the Mets will be making changes drastically. From the GM, manager on down. A disappointing season for a team with one of the best new stadiums in baseball.

Until then, see ya at the park!

NY Baseball in September

The Yankees making it, but Tampa Bay

Spring Training 2010

The Mets can’t catch a break with their players headed to the disabled list. Jose Reyes, who was out most of last season, is having his thyroid tested because of a possible imbalance.

I hope this is not a sign of the Mets upcoming season. Last season for the Mets was one to forget, with almost the whole team going on the disabled list at one-point during the season.

The crosstown rival Yankees are still trying to get the off-season kinks out. Joba Chamberlain and Phil Hughes were less than impressive in a 12-7 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. Also, Nick Johnson is hoping to return to action after experiencing back stiffness.

Until then, see ya at Spring Training!

Mets Need Help

This season was the Mets until they took a steep nose dive with injuries, no team chemistry and players under performing. They need help and they need it fast.

The Yankees mean while are neck-and-neck with the Red Sox for first place in the AL East. This scribe is surprised but way to go.

Been on hiatus as I vacation and write my book, which takes time, time and more time. The book is slowly, and I stress, slowly coming along. 

Until then, see ya at the park!

PSAL at Yankee Stadium

Went to the New York City PSAL Baseball Championships at Yankee Stadium last Tuesday and  what a treat it was. My girlfriend works for the Board of Education and the tickets were free. Though I’ll never be able to get the seats I had at a regular Yankees’ game, I sat in section 119 right behind the Legends seating at home plate. What a view!

Time, I wish I had it. 
Besides writing all over the place, I’m also working on a new baseball book which hopefully will be out by the World Series. Write, sleep, eat, write!!! I’ll keep everyone up-to-date on the progress of the book. I also have a couple of book reviews to do, so I’ll be posting  some of them real soon!

Dugout Quotes

Here’s another inspiring baseball quote:

“You see, you spend a good piece of your life gripping a baseball, and in the end it turns out that it was the other way around all the time.” — Jim Bouton, “Ball Four” 1970.

The Yankees and Red Sox finally caught the Toronto Blue Jays. Still, don’t count the Blue Jays out. Cito Gaston is as best as they come when managing the game.

Until then, see ya at the park!

Fenway Bombs

What everyone thought was a win for the Yankees, turned into another loss as the Red Sox slammed the Yankees 16-11, after the Yankees were winning 6-0. The Yankees need bullpen help and should put Joba back in the bullpen. The Yankees should also consider signing Pedro Martinez. They need all the help they can get. If this continues, Joe Girardi will be looking for a new job real soon.

Fantasy Ball

Looking for some players for your fantasy team, take a look at Scott Baker, Alex Rios, Prince Fielder and Alexei Ramirez. 

Until then, see ya at the Park!
