You know Sam Borden. He’s an award-winning columnist for The Journal News, the former Yankees beat writer at the Daily News and an all-around nice guy.
Make him feel welcome. I’m taking this week off before going to Tampa for spring training and Sam will handle the blogging duties in my absence.
The pinch-hitter series will run through Thursday; those entries are all formatted and ready to go. I also have a spring training preview post set to publish on Friday. But beyond that, you’ll be entertained by Sam.
I leave for Tampa a week from today and then get a day off April 17. So this week is one final chance to relax before it’ll be baseball all day, every day for a long stretch. So be nice to Sam and I’ll check in with you again next week.
