As of this roughly 1 p.m. today, this blog recorded its 957,000th comment since we got on the new WordPress software in January of 2007. You people have way too much time on your hands.
Roughly 400,000 of the comments were complaints about the lineup or from people wanting Brian Cashman to trade Jonathan Albaladejo and Andrew Brackman for Justin Verlander.
That said, whoever does post the millionth comment (which will be in a few weeks, more or less) will get lunch or dinner at Foley’s Pub and Restaurant in Manhattan after the season on me and a Yankees media guide and other stuff. Seems like the least I can do. If you live out of town, we’ll figure something out.
Seriously, thanks for reading. I still can’t figure out how this all happened, but it has been a lot of fun.
