Thanks for checking in … now go to bed

Well, that’s the end of a long trade deadline day. Thanks to all of you for participating and adding your comments.

This was, I believe, the best day we’ve had in this little enterprise. There were, at last count, 1,700+ comments on the posts today and according to the very cool reports from Google Analytics, we had 16,500+ unique visitors to the site.

Don’t any of you people have jobs?

I have no idea what any of those stats mean. I just appreciate so many of you checking out the blog.

I’m not covering the game tomorrow. The plan is to sleep late and go see “The Simpsons” movie before seeing The Police at the Garden with some friends. Now there’s a quality day off if I do say so myself.

But there will be a post or two along the way, hopefully. The intrepid Brian Heyman will be covering the game and assures me he will call with a lineup.

Thanks again.

    Pete,
    Those stats mean that this blog rocks, and that people know it. Keep up the good work. :)

  2. asburyboss July 31st, 2007 at 11:43 pm

    good job today Pete…it is MUCH appreciated. I’m betting Bruce shows up tomorrow at The Police…ever since Sting suggested he dump the E Street band and tour with Shayne Fontaine I haven’t been able to listen to any Police records…but have a good time and enjoy

  3. Roger Repoz July 31st, 2007 at 11:48 pm

    Pete-saw you during a post game interview!!
    Enjoy your day off.

  4. Gurusimran July 31st, 2007 at 11:51 pm

    Reading blogs is my job!

    Thanks for all the great posts. The Simpsons movie is great, have a great day off.

  5. Lil' Jimmy Norden July 31st, 2007 at 11:54 pm

    Great work in the blog Pete, that’s why so many people are checking in.

    You almost sounded like Judge Smails from Caddyshack there…DONT YOU PEOPLE HAVE HOMES??? :)

  6. Tim July 31st, 2007 at 11:54 pm

    Pete u live the life that most of us can only dream about! :) Have fun at the concert, this will be the one and only reunion tour that the Police will do imo. I echo the sentiments of the 2 other posters, that this is by far, hands down the best Yankees blog on the net. If you’ve followed the Yankees like I have for the last 40 years, and have been around for the evolution of Yankees coverage on the internet it has been a slow process but the coverage has gotten better and better in recent years and now the coverage is by the far the best its ever been and your blog my friend is one of the main reasons!!! Enjoy your well deserved day off! Thanks from Yankee fans everywhere!

  7. mel July 31st, 2007 at 11:56 pm

    You suck, Pete! You get to hang out with the –rock stars– Yankees AND you get to go see The Police? Enjoy yourself!

  8. Josh August 1st, 2007 at 12:02 am

    you will love the simpsons movie, i couldnt stop laughing the entire time

  9. pat m in CT August 1st, 2007 at 12:21 am

    the simpsons movie AND the Police?
    that is a great day off. Saw the Police in ’81 and they were phenomenal

    as always, this is the best yankees blog. Thanks for all the great info/insights etc

  10. Mike August 1st, 2007 at 12:21 am

    Pete,

    Not to get on my Marketing Professor soap box… but the 16,000 unique hits to your website would be a way for you to sell advertising space on this site… So if you were looking to make a quick buck… there ya go! Thanks for all the updates today… Cheers, enjoy the Simpsons

  11. Mehdi August 1st, 2007 at 12:46 am

    People I am going to sleep now. I gotta get up early and go put up with the schmucks at the DMV, but I’ll leave you with this you tube clip of my main man Robin Van Persie from Arsenal scoring a beauty against Inter Milan this weekend. If you don’t like Soccer don’t hate, cause your words will fall on deaf ears.

    I echo the sentiments above. I check this blog nearly everyday. You have great insight that we normally wouldn’t be able to get. I’ve shared this blog with a bunch of people and will continue to do so. Enjoy the well deserved day off. I’m jealous of both your day off activities. Take care!

  13. dontfirecash August 1st, 2007 at 1:15 am

    1,700+ ain’t true Pete, you only got 1,669(including this one) comments by my math. Yeah I’m cool, I counted the comments.

  14. Brett August 1st, 2007 at 1:23 am

    Pete, I hope you have fun tomorrow……but I saw the Simpsons movie and it wasn’t all that good (it was a long, o.k. simpsons episode) and the Police were absolutly awful when I saw them last month in tennessee. hopefully your experiences are better then mine, id rather watch the yanks

  15. E-ROC August 1st, 2007 at 1:44 am

    Chad Jennings speculated that Joba Chamberlain will be up next week before the start of the Toronto series. He said Chamberlain went to New York before making his relief appearance to get a passport.

  16. Thrillington August 1st, 2007 at 1:46 am

    Enjoy the day off, Pete. Sounds good.

    Brian Cashman gave Yankee fans a gift today, making the firmest statement possible on the mandate for the Yankees, to get younger, hold on to prospects and to not make panic moves. I fully believe this team will make it to the postseason either as a Wild Card or even as a division champ.

    But I am so thrilled at the possibility of having this rotation next year:

    Wang
    Hughes
    Chamberlain
    Pettite
    Mussina

    Wow, wow, WOW!!!

    I am so thrilled that the bullpen might be:

    Ohlendorf
    Ramirez
    Kennedy
    Karstens
    Farnsworth (maybe he could rebound a la Wetteland from ’95 into ’96?)
    Rivera

    And that’s not even touching on folks like Marquez, Clippard, Sanchez and DeSalvo who are in the pipeline. Who knows what this team will look like in ’08. But the point is the team held on to young, high ceiling potential here.

    The lineup next year could be:

    Damon
    Jeter
    Matsui
    Rodriguez
    Giambi DH (sigh…he does show up, though)
    Posada
    Cabrera
    Cano
    Phillips

    Good news, the Yanks could have more problems: what about Tabata? Is he on the bench? Do you rotate him in as a 4th or 5th outfielder? Or does he play one more year in the minors.

    Bottom line, this trade deadline allowed for Yankee fans to see into the future of this team and it is bright. Hopefully, everyone stays healthy, turns the other cheek in any potential altercation (read: no more Brien Taylors) and comes ready to play.

    Thank you Brian Cashman!!! You made my season!!!
    Philips

    Pete of course we check your blog. I checked it once and i’ve been coming back since than. your posts are the greatest. Enjoy your day off. and keep up this great work

    You do a great job with this blog and everything, but I’m not sure why you act like covering the Yankees is such a hard and terrible job that you are “finally” getting a day off. You sit in a chair and watch the Yankees play.

  21. G.R. August 1st, 2007 at 2:29 am

    I don’t often get a chance to post, but when I want to know what’s new with the Yankees, this is the FIRST place I look! You do a fantastic job, Pete. I really appreciate all the effort you put in, even on your day off! Have a great one!

  22. Peter Abraham August 1st, 2007 at 3:00 am

    NJ: Where I ever once said covering the Yankees is a hard or terrible job? Or that I’m “finally” getting a day off.

    I’ll give $500 to your favorite charity if you can uncover evidence of that.

    I merely said I was not working tomorow. Is that a crime?

    As for sitting in a chair and watching the Yankees play, I wish. You think the players, coaches, managers, executives, scouts, etc. just form a line to talk to us?

  23. A.B.K August 1st, 2007 at 8:34 am

    Yeah exactly Pete, some people think it’s easy to cover the Yankees, but as I understand it’s hard work and full of competition, and after a full day you get exhausted.
    The interesting part is how you take down from your little free time to post on the blog.
    By the way most news what you post here I can get from other websites, radio, text msgs, etc. but this is “the only place” where I can read the Yankee lineup 1-1/2 hour before the game, and that’s what made me stick around to this great blog, thank you Pete enjoy your off day which is well deserved.

  24. girl in nc August 1st, 2007 at 10:20 am

    Enjoy your day off…it sounds perfect to me. I for one can’t wait to see The Simpsons, you’ll have to review it for us when you get back.

  25. Justin August 1st, 2007 at 10:53 am

    I just saw Sting in Central Park with his wife. Enjoy the concert, Pete.

  26. Jim Clark August 1st, 2007 at 12:44 pm

    To paraphrase Lee Elia “85% of the country has jobs, the other 15% post comments on Pete Abraham’s blog.”
    I don’t think I could see the Police after seeing Eddie Murphy “sing” Roxanne in “48 hours”.

    The days of combat with spears, swords, and shields might be over; but the ways in which our warriors are trained today are very similar to the way the Romans trained in ancient times. The first thing that Roman soldiers were taught to do was to march. Training emphasized on physical training such as running, jumping, and carrying heavy backpacks. In the summer months, swimming was incorporated into the soldiers training regimen. This is strikingly similar to the methods of our American basic training system for incoming recruits into our armed forces (Ancient Rome).
