Even More Thoughts On Some Twitter (X) Posts

by Paul Semendinger

February 6, 2024

***

This is always a fun article to write. I see things on Twitter and share them here with my own thoughts...


Let's get right to it:


I have been saying this for years. It's nice to know that others see this as I do.





The above being said, baseball season cannot come soon enough!!!





I sense that the all-time best Yankees in uniforms #12 and #24 will be safe for now.





Oh baby! I hope Juan Soto is every bit as good as his numbers indicate. He will be a fun player to watch and root for!!!





I'm going to need to get to a Somerset Patriots game this summer...





That is a breat, and very rare, photo of Lou Gehrig. It's also a great quote.

Let's Go Yankees!!!

I'm not sure what the Yankees are getting with regards to Juan Soto. He' in his walk year, so he'll likely try very hard and put up big numbers (like Judge did in his walk year), but I have a bad feeling about him. Does he want to be a Yankee in the future, or is he going to be a Manny Machado, where he goes off to the highest bidder and becomes just another good but rather overpaid baseball player? Soto won a WS as a part of 2019 Nats and he's had great numbers don't get me wrong. I'm curious to see what his focus is on. Will he be a good fit in the Bronx?

But about the uniform number thing, when do guys like Wells, Dominguez, etc., get real numbers? Oh yes, the Yankees have retired way too many numbers! Me, I'd u retire 6, 9, 37, 44, 21, 20, 46, 49 for starters. I like it when Pete Sheeny used to give out the numbers. Some numbers would go years before then being reused. Like #49, could've gone from Guidry, to Pettitte. Or 46 from Pettitte to Montgomery. #30, I would not have anyone wearing it right now. From Mel to Willie to DRob.. does anyone right now deserve it?

What about No. 1? It had nothing to do with Martin's career as a player, only for the two pennants and one WS win. Well, Ralph Houk won three pennants and two WS. How about retire No. 35 for him and give Clay Holmes No. 30? /s

Oh boy, do I miss that RAB chat, especially during the game thread. Talk about instant guessing on moves, even before they do the move. Outside of this part of it, SSTN is just as good!

They did not mention what number Marcus Stroman will be getting in that Twitter (X) post. I am 100% certain that Stroman will be wearing "0" as he did with the Cubs and the Mets.

Yes, not a peep mentioned of this on the site yet. He's an intriguing lefty. Was it a good trade though? Or was it just backfilling Peralta's roster spot with a warm body likely a bit better than any internal options were? Yet another in a series of cost conscious moves?

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
