On 28...

Today marks the dawn of my last day at age 28. Not significant in the baseball world, but important to me, and not just because I'm a self-centered Aquarius.


In 2009, when the Yankees won their 27th World Series title during my 27th year, I felt a very special connection to team because of that. In 2010, I had high hopes that the Yankees would win #28 in my 28th year and create a brilliant trend, leading to the Yankees 80th WS title in 2062.

But, no dice.

This year, if we can get the pitching up to snuff (Sorry, AJ) we have a shot at getting #28 in my 29th year. Will it be amazing, wonderful and probably make me cry? Yes. Will it be as special as it would have been had they won in my 28th year? Maybe or maybe not. They should just do it so I can find out already!

I miss you guys and can't wait to have more regular posts about baseball. Just think, only 69 more days until the home opener at Yankee Stadium. I'll be there and hope you will be too!

So, Are You Going to Come Get Your Present...

Or should I meet you in a dark bar somewhere to give it to you?

Happy 34th birthday to my Yankees' crush, A.J. Burnett. Since he wears #34 and he is 34 this year, it should be his Golden Baseball Year, no? If not that, let's at least make it a better year than last year, for all of our sakes.

Happy birthday, Mr. RHP... (Image/AP)

On a related note, pitchers and catchers report in less than six weeks. Who is up for a road trip to Florida?
