Hey yo, yo, yo. Welcome to Bronx Banter's new home, Baseball Toaster. After a great run at All-Baseball.com, we're starting f-r-e-s-h for 2005. Course it should be nothing short of another entertaining baseball season in the Boogie Down.
I'm proud to announce that Cliff Corcoran will be co-writing Bronx Banter with me this season. When I started this blog, I always dreamed of having collaborators, and I've been fortunate enough to have writers like Chris DeRosa, Edward Cossette, and Brian Gunn submit articles periodically. But I've long craved something more permanent. I don't pretend to be any kind of baseball expert, which is why I enjoying linking to other writing around the web. Now, there will be another distinct voice right here. I think the two of us will compliment each other nicely and be able to provide you with even more balanced Yankee thoughts and coverage than ever. Cliff is actually emotionally stable when it comes to the Yanks, which is comforting, knowing how nuts I tend to get when the going gets tough. What's really cool about having Cliff aboard is that he's a crack analyst. He does just the kind of stuff that I love reading but am not so interested in writing myself. I'm not going anywhere but now you'll get two writers for the price of none!
I'm sure a lot of you are already familar with Cliff's stuff, but do wish him a warm welcome (and not a Bronx Cheer) to the blog when you get a minute.
Also, bear with us for a minute as the technical kinks sort themselves out. As Robert DeNiro told his cronies in Good Fellas: "It's gunna be a good summer!"
