A writer and MLB baseball analyst on several radio stations who has attended New York Yankee games since 1971. My father and I were at the last game in the original Yankee Stadium, and those tickets were courtesy of Yankee HOF shortstop Phil Rizzuto.
I work in the MLB Media covering the the minor leagues, including the Arizona Fall League and ML Instructional Leagues in both Florida and Arizona.
I am a fan of all sports but concentrate mainly on baseball and football. Check out my baseball writings on my blog at www.josephdelgrippo.wordpress.com. You can also follow me on Twitter.
Solid baseball franchises let young players develop rather than going after big money free agents. Draft good talent and build up the middle with pitching, catching and solid up the middle defense, then trade your marginal prospects to fill in the blanks.
Joe in one article you said the old saying "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink" when referring to Burnett. I know how you feel about him but it looks like that stubborn horse might be trying to drink the water at long last.
Cashman said this a few days ago:
”It was good. Obviously he had the disappointing year. He knows that, we know that. Our job is to attack areas of weakness and he’s physically ready to go. I’ll give you one nugget, he called Larry Rothschild directly. We hired Larry Rothschild to be our pitching coach and the first phone call he received was from AJ Burnett” It reminded me of Robinson Cano years ago when he reached out to Larry Bowa and said ‘can you help me?’ So that was a good sign….Larry’s going to work with him, early in the winter and prior to Spring Training and work on some mechanical stuff and I think you’ll see an Burnett like the one we saw prior to this year.
Joseph, your article about Victor Martinez is wrong on so many accounts, and lacks a lot of "logical reasoning" that every journalist should employ before their fingers hit the keypads. The Tigers have made 2 excellent signings this offseason, with Martinez making sense on so many levels. Try not to let your personal feelings for sports teams curtail the articles and arguments you create. It shows a complete lack of professionalism.
Would Joe Torre manage the Mets? http://bleacherreport.com/articles/468986-joe-torre-considering-managing-new-york-mets-is-he-really-serious
Here's an AL East Roundtable featuring five writers representing each team
I've read some of your work on here and I've found you to be one of the more knowledgeable Yankee fans around. Please check out this recent article I wrote if you're interested...thanks, and have a good day
Thanks for the feedback Joseph. I will continue to work at becoming a better writer.
