Sunday Readers' Thread

December 17, 2023


This question came from longtime reader David. THANK YOU DAVID!

Readers (and writers), please respond to the following:

Imagine for a moment that Brian Cashman decides to take a vacation and that he will miss the entire upcoming season.

Imagine also, that Hal Steinbrenner has been reading Start Spreading the News, and is so impressed by the quality of the analysis, writing, and commenting, that he decides to hire a one year, temporary replacement for Cashman from among the writers and commenters here.

You are being interviewed for the position. Hal asks you, "Although we have made considerable improvements to the team already, what is your plan to finish fixing the Yankees?"

Your answer would have to be succinct because Hal has a lots of other writers and commenters to interview, and it must be a plan that you could convince Hal is rational and doable. Also, Hal is a very busy man and has very little time for this initial interview with you, so that means less than 50 words to your answer. If you exceed that amount, you won't get the job.

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."
