Cabrera, Eiland, Kennedy and more…

Over the next few days, I’ll have some blog items with quotes from Melky Cabrera, Ian Kennedy and Dave Eiland — all Thunder alums.  I spoke to all three yesterday at Yankee Stadium, with some Thunder questions mixed in…

I’ll also have a special feature with Harlan Chamberlain, who was gracious enough to answer several of my questions before Yankees batting practice.  We’ll talk about the difficulties of following his son’s career through the minors, and the biggest thing that Joba has taken from his father…

I know nobody cares about how I started following this team.  Believe me, I get enough cheery e-mails reminding me of how beloved I am to some. 

But my only memories of David Eckstein were as a fan, and he was my favorite player on that magical 1999 Trenton Thunder team.  So, of course, getting to chat with him for a few minutes now that I’m on the media side of things was one of the highlights of my career.

We talked about his time on the Thunder, the Red Sox losing him via waivers, and winning a World Series MVP.

So stay tuned for that as well…
