The Superstition of my Desktop

I am a baseball fan and baseball is in my heart and in my blood so naturally I am a pretty superstitious person sometimes (all the time). Way back in 2009 the New York Yankees signed AJ Burnett to a big free agent deal and as many of you probably know by now Burnett was my favorite player. I loved AJ when he was with the Florida Marlins and the Toronto Blue Jays because there is something about throwing a no hitter with nine walks that excites me. Anyway let me get back on track before I get too far gone, for the 2009 season I put a picture of AJ in a Yankees uniform on my desktop on my PC. I don't need to tell you the history, the Yankees won the World Series and AJ had a great and healthy season. So in 2010 I picked one player who I thought needed a pick me up and they were showcased on my desktop all season long... and I just picked my 2015 player this afternoon.

In 2010 I chose Phil Hughes because I felt it was finally his time to break out... 18 wins later I decided this would be a yearly thing. 2011, Mariano Rivera. 2012, Derek Jeter. 2013, Robinson Cano. Last season I had Jacoby Ellsbury on my desktop all season long and he was one of the best hitters on the team. Overall, Ellsbury stayed healthy as well in 2014 which led me to my 2015 pick, Mr. Masahiro Tanaka. Tanaka had a partially torn UCL in his throwing elbow last season and opted to rest and rehab it rather than head under the knife for a Tommy John surgery. If anyone needs a little bit of black magic and help it's Tanaka so the official revealing for my 2015 desktop picture... #TANAKA
