How Green Was My Valley

Yankee game is on TV this afternoon.

Chad Jennings does a nice job of recapping the Andy Pettitte story over at Lo-Hud. And here is more from Ken Rosenthal.

Play Ball.

Hey, How Green Was My Valley is about WALES, not Ireland. Although it was made by an Irish-American director.

Holy cow, I have been living under a rock for the past couple of weeks. I had no idea about the Pettitte signing. Swish screaming on the phone sounds about right. I've been posting very infrequently for a while, mainly because of work, but I want to mention that my father-in-law is really ill. This is the man who is solely responsible for my wife being a Yankees (and not Red Sox) fan. I found out this morning that he needs a heart transplant. I am not the praying sort of guy, but any good thoughts, vibes, or prayers for him would be wonderful and appreciated.

1) Yup, I know that. Just trying to get "green" in the mix.

2) And Rosenthal's piece is about how close they were to not doing a deal.

[2] Best wishes to your father and law and the rest of your family.

[3] I'm just busting balls. I was thinking you'd be giving me more grief for that one.

6 Matt Blankman   ~  Mar 17, 2012 11:20 am

That Rosenthal piece is interesting...this was all very tenuous.

7 Alex Belth   ~  Mar 17, 2012 11:30 am

5) Well, I was ignoring you.

2) Best to you and your fam, man. That's tough.

[4] Thanks Jon. He's glad the season is starting soon. Mike was a pretty active guy, so sitting around the house is not his bag. Baseball on the tube may make it somewhat tolerable.

[0] I'm okay with the signing but don't really know where, if at all, AP fits in. He's no spring chicken. As long as the team wins, I don't care if he sucks. One thing I don't want to see again, though, is Ellsbury stealing home.

[2] all the best to you and yours!

11 Matt Blankman   ~  Mar 17, 2012 1:20 pm

[7] Oooh. You win this round, Belth...but I'll be back.

12 Matt Blankman   ~  Mar 17, 2012 1:21 pm

[2] Thinking good thoughts for you guys. Best wishes.

13 rbj   ~  Mar 17, 2012 1:28 pm

[2] Best of luck to your family. Hope he gets a new one.

14 rbj   ~  Mar 17, 2012 1:33 pm

Mmmm, Mo.

Nice Rip by Bill Hall.

Not Boone's day.

[2] Best wishes to your father-in-law, friend...

[1] I was driving around a crew of filmmakers from Dublin this week; we were on our way from the city to Portland, ME and I decided to bypass I-95 because it was approaching rush hour when we left the city (but the GPS somehow sent us through Vermont @8pm); after stopping for dinner we continued to our destination in the dead of night; we crossed through a region that was so foggy we couldn't see more than 10 feet in front of us. The movie "Brigadoon" started crossing my mind, but I didn't say anything at the time, yet within minutes we did cross through a tiny, sleepy little town engulfed in heavy fog in the dead of night:

Dublin, NH

[2] Good thoughts and prayers both. Methinks he's going to love watching Pineda pitch. But I also think Montero's going to hit 30 homers this year. Oi!

19 Eric McCauley   ~  Mar 17, 2012 7:29 pm

[18] Let's hope so.

Thanks to all for the good wishes. Mo looked sharp today aside from plunking that one dude.
