Last Sunday I was in Albeturkey and I stopped by to watch some high school kids play.
Today, the Yanks and Rays play indoors down in Tampa. Rubber game and all. Todd Drew’s boy, AJ Burnett on the hill as the Yanks look to win the series.
Second turn for Tino Martinez in the broadcast booth today. I figure Tino–eager to please in the manner of an over-achieving high school junior–to be awful on TV. Another boring ex-jock chock full of cliches. Company Man. But with O’Neill on Friday night in the blowout, he had a few moments of insight, some self-deprecating humor. Who knows, maybe he’ll have some spark, after all.
Big shoes to fill, though. I thought Coney was a budding star and he certainly was the most entertaining, unpredictable, and candid analyst on YES. If they ever get him together with Mex Hernandez, someone’s getting arrested.
Let’s Go Yan-Kees.
