It seems the Yankees September call-ups weren’t over with just yet.
Chad Jennings, who has done an excellent job as the Scranton Yankees beat writer, will be taking over for Peter Abraham, who’s leaving LoHud to go to the Boston Globe.
That’s awesome news for Chad, who is very deserving of such a move.
Without Pete and Chad, I’d venture to guess that my career wouldn’t be where it is now. Both have been instrumental in the success of this blog — it’s always amazing to see what happens to the hits here when one or both link to something I’ve written — and their help and friendship has been invaluable.
In reading some of the comments on various posts about these moves, I’ve seen that a lot of you have had very kind words regarding myself serving as a possible replacement, and that’s very flattering and appreciated. The fact that people feel like I should even be considered for the position shows how far I’ve come from a guy who stumbled onto this line of work by accident seven years ago.
I do believe that a knowledge of the alphabet is a prerequisite of moving up a level…so yes, I screwed up and posted the Matt Cusick piece before I posted the Colin Curtis one. Curtis…Cusick…close enough, right? So I’ll have the Curtis stuff for you later today. OK?
I appreciate everyone’s kind words, and I’ll keep trying to post new things every day on here to keep everyone interested and talking.
