Just spoke to Johnny Damon, who reminded me that he had dinner with CC Sabathia during the season. Michelle Damon, he said, has become friendly with Amber Sabathia over the last few months.

The more you learn, the more you realize that the Yankees played this well. Brian Cashman’s home visit brings back memories of covering college basketball. The coaches used to say then that the home visit was key to land a recruit.
Howie Dickenman, a former UConn assistant (and now the head coach at Central Connecticut State) always said you had to recruit a player’s mom as much as the player.
Or in this case, the player’s wife.
I’m finally through writing my newspaper stories for the day. As more develops, I’m hoping to get some more blog posts up. It’s been a busy day already and it may not be over.
