DateQuestionAnswer
2008-08-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)You seem to be a thoughtful person... Is it hard to be associated with the Yankees?
(Wendy from Madrid)
I always mean to ask this when I see you here, Wendy: Madrid, Spain? Anyway, this is the funniest question so far, though I'm not sure if this is a shot at the Yankees or their fans. Anyway, it's great to be associated with the Yankees for this reason: there's always something new and interesting going on to write about, and there's also that ever-present great history. If I was writing the Royals-striped Bible I would have had to find another line of work by now. Watching 90 to 100 losses a year, every year, without hope of anything getting better, and within those games, having to watch 500 plate appearances by whoever is this year's David Howard equivalent? I'd go mad. The Yankees are a writer's best friend. (Steven Goldman)
