It’s Always Sunny in Port Jervis


The other night the Wife and I were talking about this  year’s Yankees. I told her about some of the new players and when I got to Eduardo Nunez’s replacement, Yangervis Solarte she said, “Wait–who? Port Jervis?”

And so a new nickname was born in our home.

Solarte had 3 hits and a couple of RBI last night, Ivan Nova lucked-out getting 4 double plays, David Robertson earned the save and the Yanks left Houston with a win.

Final Score:  Yanks 4, Astros 2.

We will take it.

I mostly grew up in Mount Hope, NY, nearby to Port Jervis. IIRC, PJ is where my mom taught middle school.

Unlike previous spring trainings, this year I pretty much paid zero attention. I was introduced to Solarte in game 2. Port Jarvis looks balanced at the plate and so far I like the cut of his jib. I don't recall seeing him making any plays in field, yet.

Gosh, it's almost like young and hungry ballplayers are preferable to the old and overpaid variety. See Rays, A's, Nats, etc.

Right decision on Nunez, sadly.

[2] I thought he made a couple of nice plays last night. One to start one of the four DPs and a second on a ball hit hard right at him.

[1] Grew up in White Plains, but there was this girl in Port Jervis.....

Anyhow, have a place in Vernon NJ and we ride up to Port Jervis frequently. Nice little town.

[2] Aha. Thanks. I was flipping back in forth. I can't win the tv war with the wife early in the season. : )
