One week is in the books and in many ways I feel as if the season hasn't started yet. That's what you get when the Bombers open up on the west coast. To be honest, between my job and promoting "Stepping Up", I've simply been too preoccupied to focus on the Yanks. I've caught a few odd innings here and there, and, fortunately, I know where to come for all the latest recaps and analysis.
My trip to St. Louis was brief but a success and I really enjoyed the place, its history and all the baseball fans I met. The longest interview I did was the first--for the local NPR station (which you can listen to here). I've got just enough "ums" and "you knows" in there to make my old man roll his eyes--and I was trying my best to be on point with that stuff. (I must have said "essentially" or "the interesting thing" about a dozen times each too.) Just goes to show you what a learned skill talking in public is. Hey, I'm getting there. Tonight, I'll be on Sports Bloggers Live between 7-8 on AOL, and I'm also hosting a chat over at Baseball Prospectus. I'd appreciate it if y'all could stop by and throw in a question--about Flood, the Yanks, or anything else you've got on your mind.
Thanks, and I hope to be back to the Yankee beat sometime in the near future.
