January quickly winding down and a deal yet to be done to secure
Pettitte in pinstripes, or any uniform for that matter, for ’09, I
think it’s time to cue the music:
it was once thought inevitable that a deal would be done between the
Yanks and Pettitte at one point this offseason, that clearly hasn’t
turned out to be the case, with Andy still unable to definitively say
that he’ll be playing in the new Yankee Stadium this year… or any
stadium at all, considering his second option was thought to be back to
Houston, but according to their owner, they don’t need him… So, what
does Andy do now? He signs on the damn dotted line. If, by some miracle,
Old Reliable is reading this right now, there are two things you ought
We seriously want to see you in pinstripes another year… or at least
I do. I know many other Yankee fans love to see new additions, something the Yanks could possibly resort to seeking for to fill the role of the 5th starter,
but I’d much rather see you in the rotation than any other guy the
Yanks could get, or already have.
The Yankees… period. You’ve spent enough time with the team to
realize who they are by now, so if you’re still hoping they’ll budge
on the offer, knowing full well that you have no other options,
well… good luck. I know Obama has preached many times about hope and
change, but this wasn’t what he was talking about Andy. The Yanks
aren’t changing the deal. I know it, all of baseball knows it, and deep
down you know it too, so break out the ballpoint pen and give us
something to cheer about next year in El Estadio Numero Dos.
And speaking of that new hunk of concrete gorgeousness…
was the day the Yanks packed up the glory days and moved it on over to
the new Yankee Stadium to hopefully bring some more of those days to
come. To simply say that I can not wait for the season to start may be the understatement of
Start the countdown till spring training.
The MLB Network may be the greatest thing to hit TV since The Daily
Show and/or Colbert Report [if you don’t watch either one of those I’ve just lost
all respect for you], but it seems like the network has been showing a
hell of a lot of Red Sox, or is it just me? I don’t know, but I do
recall scanning the guide and seeing “Red Sox Memories” and games involving the
Red Sox being shown on the channel for an entire day once, and if that
continues to happen, well… God / Allah / Baby Jesus / Oprah Winfrey / Tom Cruise, help us. We really can’t handle another ESPN.

– Speaking of, The Dark Knight got robbed. How a film can earn 2nd most all time and not even earn a nomination for Best Picture is beyond me.
