Yankee Preview Week

Play Ball

I wanted to do something fun to preview the 2004 Yankee season, but for a long time, I didn’t know how to go about it. Writing a preview-analysis or coming up with a series of predictions are the obvious routes, but I’m not an analyst and no prognosticator. Besides, there are good writers out there who will do a terrific job with that kind of stuff anyhow. Instead, I’ve enlisted a few of my favorite writers to help me profile different Yankee players. Ben Jacobs, Rich Lederer, Bronx Banter correspondent Christopher DeRosa, Cliff Corcoran, Jay Jaffe and Steven Goldman are all pitching in. Each day this week, there will be an original piece here at Bronx Banter. (Lucky me=lucky us.) Then on Sunday, we’ll tie the room together with a Roundtable Discussion, previewing the coming season with a group of experts. I’m sure I’ll find some time to link-up the latest articles from spring training too. In the meanwhile, I hope you enjoy. Like Robert DeNiro said to Paul Sorvino and Ray Liotta in “Good Fellas,” “It’s gunna be a good summer.”
