And now on to baseball:
For new readers: I am a baseball fan..well duh! I am a Yankee fan, but there are a few players on other teams I like. I don't know how I became a Yankee fan. I was originally a Mets a fan...I went to a lot of Met games as a kid, especially in camp. In camp, somehow we almost always got to see the Mets play the Astros. I don't know if they did that on purpose or what. Of course I saw a few games with dad. Yes, dad was a Mets fan. Mom's a Yankees fan. I've never seen a Yankees game live.
Somewhere around 1996 I started watching Yankee games. That's when I became a huge fan of Mariano Rivera, Tino Martinez, and Andy Pettit. I don't know why I just started watching Yankee games. I just did...and I enjoy watching them often!
I prefer watching on television. Why? I get to see the player's faces!
So the Yankees have acquired Ichiro Suzuki. I wasn't aware there was a trade deal in the works. I had to ask someone if this was true. I was hoping to see Brett Gardner back, but I guess that won't be happening. I am hoping Mariano will be able to return next year. I also hope he is feeling better.
