    Please, please, please, let this be real and not something that’s going to pop like a balloon.

    Sonny Gray

    He seems like a nice guy and I do hope that he pitches better.

    But, there’s always the case that he may just be another failed Cashman pitching acquisition along the lines of Michael Pineda, A.J. Burnett, Javy Vazquez, Kei Igawa, Nathan Eovaldi, Hideki Irabu, Jeff Weaver, Carl Pavano, Denny Neagle, Kevin Brown, Esteban Loaiza, etc.

    I’m Keith Hernandez

    Well, actually, I’m not…

    …but, I did read a review copy of “I’m Keith Hernandez: A Memoir.”

    It’s a really, really, good book. Hernandez is honest, transparent, frank and blunt. This one is no holds barred. It’s also one that’s not for the kiddies. It’s PG-13, at the least.

    It’s the Keith Hernandez story from being a kid until April 1980 – with a little current stuff sprinkled in, here and there. It’s all very interesting and I highly recommend this book – and that’s coming from a Yankees fan.

    This could be the best baseball book of this summer.

    It’s All Good

    It’s been an interesting last 24 days! See? I told you the Yankees would be fine! They are rolling now. Although, can we please stop with the injuries? That said, it’s going to be a fun year. I totally LOVE watching Aaron Judge. You know that other teams have Trout, Harper, and guys like that…where you say “Why can’t we get a guy like that?” Well, we DO have that guy. There’s nothing not to love about Judge. And, Didi…I never thought he would be this good. But, I am happy that he is! And, how about Sabathia!

    Me? It’s been crazy since my last post. School baseball season started the day after that post. And, we’re heavy into travel baseball now too. Each week, my son as two or three school games. And, then he’s playing ball all weekend long too. Last weekend, we were over in Pennsylvania, the weekend before, we were in Mickleton NJ (real far away). This coming weekend, we’re in Yaphank, Long Island. Lots of driving! And, lots of times leaving at 5 AM to head to games. On top of that, in order to make his school games, I have been going into work early and leaving early. Basically, I get up at 5 AM EVERYDAY now – and, I am NOT a morning person.

    It’s all good. School ball stops in about 3 weeks. And, the tournament schedule is lighter in June. (Although, it’s going to be insane again in July.) But, this is his thing and it’s fun to watch.

    For those who have been here since the beginning, remember, he was ONE year old when I started this blog. And, next September, he heads off to High School. Man, that went quick! (Yeah, that’s him in the picture, hitting.)

    Anyway – back to the Yankees. Enjoy it! This is a very good team. I would be shocked if they don’t make the playoffs. What happens there…we will have to wait and see.
