Paul, I enjoyed watching your entire podcast, and I especially enjoy all the positivity. I always have a positive optimistic outlook on everyone of the Yankee players going into the season, and yes, even Giancarlo Stanton, who I am optimistic can still have a year in which he is one of the most feared hitters in baseball. I think he still has it in him. Also optimistic about a bounce back year from DJ.

Ironically, Roberto Alomar and the umpire he spit on, John Hirschbeck are now best of friends! Two of Hirschbeck's sons developed a rare disease, and Alomar has gone out of his way to help both of his sons, and he has donated enormous amounts of money to help them and to help find a cure for their disease. https://www.espn.com/mlb/news/2000/0515/533467.html

Sorry to hear about your family Paul.


For far too long, Hal really was a hands off owner. Cashman, I'm assuming here, laid out what he wanted to do to Hal in bi picture form, then was allowed to do as he wanted to go about and do it.


Misspending money needs to fall on both Hal & Cashman. Cashman for keep doing it, and Hal for never stopping and asking him: Why should I let you spend $X on Player C when you screwed the pooch on the signings of Players A & B.

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."
