Don't worry Has says we are just getting started....big things to come....I'll sell you a bridge!!!!

ever since the Yankees traded for Juan Soto, so many people thought that Soto would be a great help to the team and that the Yankees would win a lot of games


how many games has he helped them to win thus far?

Make of that what you will

some might argue that it's still too early to claim that Soto has been an utter disappointment

but to these people, we might remind that that it's NEVER too early to panic

and that a first-class organization should expect first-class results


if not sooner

Ok… but what big free agent signing has already equated to wins? That is idiotic… until the games are played, the answer is none to all players.

Paul as Yogi would say, This feels like dejavu all over again

Signing a pitcher just for the sake of signing one is worse than not signing one at all....if it is one who is not going to perform well for the Yankees. On that list you provided, Yamamoto, Nola, and Eduardo Rodriguez are the only ones who I would have loved for the Yankees to have signed. Most of those are of the "They can have them!" variety, ones I am glad the Yankees did NOT sign.

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

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."
