At least he didn't click "Reply All"

Happy New Year! Yeah, it's been that long, December 6th to be exact, since I last wrote on here. Oy vey.

Outside of Tanaka, there hasn't been much to talk about on the free agent market since before the winter meetings, but there is one hilarious topic I wanted to get to. Did everyone see those Randy Levine-Alex Rodriguez emails?! I actually thought the Onion wrote them or some other parody, but they are all too real. Randy and A-Rod were talking on email like my friends and I on Facebook; cracking jokes about Cano, steroids and injuries! Then when trouble hit, A-Rod made his pleas to Levine and mentioned that Steinbrenner would be rolling over in his grave, which is probably true considering that half the time, he was the one that started the trouble (Howie Spira!) Levine just gave him the form letter response like the press got.

Thank God New York magazine published these; the A-Rod saga never gets old.

'Till Next Time!

Yankee Stadium Legacy: #90 Roger Clemens

Roger Clemens was one of the greatest hurlers ever to take a Major League mound. Clemens is well remembered for reaching two monster career milestones in the same game where Clemens saw his 4,000th batter of his career strike out in his 300th victory. The victory came at Yankee Stadium on 6/13/03 against the St. Louis Cardinals.

90 days until Yankees opening day.

This Day In New York Yankees History 1/1

On this day in 1923 Wee Willie Keeler died as a result of heart failure. Keeler pomised his fans and former teammates that he would live to see 1923 and lasted until New Years Day, as promised. Keeler played for the Superbas (now the Dodgers), Orioles, Giants (New York), and the Highlanders (now the Yankees) in his Hall of Fame career. Keeler is known for his quote "keep your eye clear, and hit 'em where they ain't."

On this day in 1941 Babe Ruth spends $50,000 for defense bonds in support of the U.S. mobilization effort. The $50,000 is the maximum amount allowed by law for one person to purchase and was considered to be a big chunk of money back then.

What's Your New Years Resolution?

Stop kissing that random person just for the sake of kissing someone at midnight and read my blog, okay thanks. I am a firm disbeliever in resolutions for the New Years, call me crazy. I firmly believe that if you want to lose weight you should lose weight because you want to, not because the calendar says you should. Wanna quit smoking? Quit, no matter if its January 1st or July 1st. You know?

I try and be the best person that I can be all year long. If I put my mind to something I generally do it but I am not closed minded. I enjoy hearing what everyone's resolutions are and their success rate. What's your New Years resolution this year? Leave me a comment in the comment box on the site.

Happy New Years everyone! Make it the best yet!!
