Man Ram

My cousin sent me a text message today saying 'We don't need Manny!'.

I tend to agree with that. I think the Yankees are pretty balanced as a team right now.

If anything, what they need is more bench help and another starter.

Manny could become interesting if his price continues to drop. I'm as worried as anyone about his club house attitude, but who really knows how blown out of proportion it really is.

In the end I think Manny stays with the Dodgers or maybe ends up with the Angels. But once those teams make an offer, expect Scott Boras to let every other team know about it. If the Yankee we're interested, that's when you'd see them make an offer of their own.

Baseball is on it's way.

I've been toying with the post below for a few days. I kept putting off actually posting it. Tonight I learned of the death of Todd Drew. Todd was a great writer and a passionate Yankee fan. My only interactions with him where through the comment sections of different blogs, but I enjoyed his view on things as well as his writing. He seemed like a great guy, and this is a sad day for our little community of Yankee bloggers. My very best wishes go to his friends and family.

It's been a long, cold and dark few months. Winter seems to be dragging and there's only ice and snow as far as the eye can see. Meanwhile, the sporting news is dominated with playoff football and college basketball with only the occasional free agent signing reminding us that baseball season is coming.

However with each day, the season inches closer to starting. Sometimes the only way I can get through these icy cold New England winter days is to close my eyes and imagine myself sitting on my porch listening to game on a warm and sunny Saturday afternoon. That time will be here soon enough, and I plan on enjoying every minute of it.
