Congrats to Wang and congrats on the move to Belth, Corcoran, and the rest of the Bronx Banter crew.

As long as the Yankees have no interest in Burnett, AJ can have all the interest he wants.

The new site works for me

Just a test, to make sure everything is working fine at the new stadium, er, site.

I prefer CC to A.J. More durable (I hope) and Yankees won't have to spend any money on the periods in his name.

And really, what free agent looking for a big deal on the open market hasn't professed interest in the Yankees over the years?
