The LoHud Yankees Blog

A New York Yankees blog by Chad Jennings and the staff of The Journal News


So, here’s a little news for you

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Sep 17, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

I was hoping to keep this quiet another day or two so I could compose my thoughts. But that’s not possible these days.

So here it is: I’m leaving The Journal News after nearly 10 years and going to work for The Boston Globe.

I’ll be covering baseball — yes, the Red Sox — and blogging for Boston.com. The Globe approached me in August, right around the time my newspaper was going through some painful restructuring that you all heard about.

But that was incidental. For many years now, my life has been my job. I covered the UConn basketball team for 13 seasons for The Norwich (Conn.) Bulletin and then the Mets and Yankees for the The Journal News. It was tremendous fun to work for a small paper and then to move up a step on the chain.

Now I get a chance to move up again and live closer to my family. I’m the oldest child in my family and my mom and dad are retired. It means a lot to me to be around them and other members of my family. For years, they’ve been imploring me to come home and now seems like a good time.

But it wasn’t an easy call. I have literally not slept for 48 hours pondering this decision. The Journal News has treated me better than I had any right to expect and tried very hard to convince me to stay. I also really, really love covering the Yankees. It has been the highlight of my professional career. I’m close friends with several other beat writers, too. We try to beat each other’s brains out in the paper, but it always has been with a sense of camaraderie and great respect.

Then there are you guys. This blog was the first by a beat writer in the New York market when it started in 2006 and it’s here today because of your loyalty and your passion for the Yankees. I sort of feel like a circus ringmaster at times, trying to hold it all together. It has been a tremendous ride and I thank you for letting me part of your baseball experience. If I find an audience half as good in Boston, I’ll be thrilled.

If there was a way to work for a larger paper and to advance professionally while still covering the Yankees, I would have really had a dilemma. But you don’t need me to tell you what is going on in the newspaper business. The Globe offered me a great opportunity and, frankly, I would have been foolish not to take it.

I’m sure some of you will accuse me of being a traitor because I’ll be covering the Red Sox. But I consider the regulars here to be my friends. Some of you I have met, some not. Regardless, I hope you can understand why I’m doing this and — who knows? — maybe someday I’ll be back covering the Yankees.

Whether you care to believe this or not, beat writers don’t root for teams. Our teams are our papers. We root for good stories and perhaps for certain people we meet along the way. This is a decision that I made for personal and professional reasons and I hope you can understand that.

I have two weeks left and I’m not going to waver in my commitment to get you as much news as I can on the Yankees.

As always, thanks for reading.

————-

I have been assured by my bosses at The Journal News that they remain committed to Yankees coverage. They are already compiling a list of candidates to replace me. The only thing that will change here is the loss of my ugly mug, and that’s an upgrade. So don’t worry about that.

UPDATE, 8:40 p.m.: Holy cats, thanks for all the e-mails and good wishes posted on the blog. It means a lot to me that I have your support in this. Trust me, it was not an easy decision..

Meanwhile, I’ll be around for two more weeks and I promise one more reader Q&A. We’re going to have some fun. Plus I get a feeling I’ll be blogging the Yankees and Sox in the ALCS and that’ll will be a blast.

    Its not April and Im no fool.

  2. Jim Pir-one September 17th, 2009 at 7:00 pm

    Enjoy the Globe, Pete. I cant wait to see your “unbiased” views regarding all things Boston.

    Maybe when you speak of David Ortiz’ home run numbers, you will include an asterisk like you do for Alex.

  3. ADam September 17th, 2009 at 7:00 pm

    Say it ain’t so………….

  4. C September 17th, 2009 at 7:01 pm

    Sorry to see you go. Thanks for all your great work.

  5. Uncle Ellsworth (be nice, until it's not time to be nice) September 17th, 2009 at 7:01 pm

    Godspeed!

  6. Russ September 17th, 2009 at 7:02 pm

    Good luck in your new digs, Pete.

    You’ve run an excellent Yankee blog here for the last couple years.

    I hope that in the future, I’ll come to check on your frequently-depressing Globe columns reporting the never-ending string of Boston baseball disappointments (as I do now with bostondirtdogs.com).

  7. GD September 17th, 2009 at 7:02 pm

    A punch to the gut. I wish you the best, but this is a real loss for Yankee fans.

  8. Jon September 17th, 2009 at 7:02 pm

    This is the best Yankees blog out there. Sox fans should consider themselves lucky to have Pete.

  9. Evan September 17th, 2009 at 7:03 pm

    Best of luck Pete, you’ll be sorely missed.

  10. Erica - always OPPC September 17th, 2009 at 7:03 pm

    This saddens me greatly!!!!

    The people of Boston are quite lucky to be getting an asset like you to cover their team.

    I’ll miss you Pete :-(

  11. m September 17th, 2009 at 7:03 pm

    Good luck, Pete. :(

  12. hornblower September 17th, 2009 at 7:03 pm

    Pete,
    Good luck Bud.

  13. Uncle Ellsworth (be nice, until it's not time to be nice) September 17th, 2009 at 7:04 pm

    I hope the Lohud chooses wisely.

  14. dunford September 17th, 2009 at 7:04 pm

    You’re a tremendous writer and you will be missed now that you are dead to me.
    (Kidding. God bless, God speed and all that.)

  15. YanksinCA September 17th, 2009 at 7:04 pm

    Good Luck! It’s not easy being away from family.

    Go Yanks!

  16. Colin September 17th, 2009 at 7:04 pm

    What the hell am I gonna do all day now? Some of the worst news ever. Put in a good word for Mike Ashmore, he does a great job with the Thunder and I’m sure he’d like getting called up.

  17. Tom September 17th, 2009 at 7:04 pm

    Best of luck to you. You’ve done a phenomenal job.

  18. Thomo September 17th, 2009 at 7:05 pm

    Wow- Peter I am an avid reader although I rarely post. Your efforts have added enormously to my enjoyment of the baseball season. I feel as I would if a close friend was relocating.
    Thanks for all that you have done. And certainly my very best wishes for continued success!

  19. Stevie September 17th, 2009 at 7:05 pm

    so ya gonna cover the ‘roid sox in the playoffs?

  20. Stultus Magnus (R.I.P. Jim Carroll) September 17th, 2009 at 7:05 pm

    Damn, today’s turning out to be some sort of twisted country song for me.

    Good luck, Pete. You’re the odd bridge that doesn’t fit, if that makes any sense.

    All the best in Beantown.

  21. Jason September 17th, 2009 at 7:05 pm

    Pete congrads on a great opportunity. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication to the fans. We will miss you. Have fun with all the Fenway drunks. Boston just got a great reporter.

  22. Matt September 17th, 2009 at 7:05 pm

    Pete,

    you’ll be missed, thanks for the great coverage and insight. Best of luck

  23. admo September 17th, 2009 at 7:05 pm

    Damn. Take it from me, dude: Boston really, really, really, really, really sucks. I’ve lived here for ten years and I’d rather be anywhere else in the world than this provincial loony farm.

    I don’t think you’re a traitor, but I think you’re making the wrong decision.

    Well, maybe I think you’re a little bit of a traitor.

  24. nomas September 17th, 2009 at 7:06 pm

    Peter, I have been reading your blog for over 3 years. I have posted maybe twice, but come to your blog at least 4-5 times a day. You have left me speechless. I am hurt, shocked, a little betrayed, but at the same time, I know the Yankees will live on and so will you. I wish you the best. You have been the voice when the Yankees have been silent. You have given us news before the rest, and insight where we haven’t found any about our beloved team.

    I will miss you, I will miss your dependability, your charisma, your charm, and most of all, your great reporting on the Yankees. At the same time, it breaks my heart to know that now you belong to Boston. Good luck, and please don’t tell them our secrets.

  25. rogerk99 September 17th, 2009 at 7:06 pm

    Hey Peter, that is great news, I’m really happy for you, but will really miss you-the times better up their blog activity in your wake-roger k

  26. David from the Jersey Shore September 17th, 2009 at 7:06 pm

    =(

  27. RPB September 17th, 2009 at 7:07 pm

    Best of luck Pete. You will be missed here. You have set the standard for Newspaper blogging excellence. Will you be done blogging now or continue for 2 weeks? When do you pick up the Sox Blog? Thanks for all of the enlightening info.

  28. acyanks September 17th, 2009 at 7:07 pm

    Congratulations, love your blog, and will miss it. As someone who has lived lots of places but always ends up near my family. I certainly cant fault you, best of luck.

  29. Stanny2446 September 17th, 2009 at 7:07 pm

    While I will miss reading your blog…I am very happy for you. It doesn’t mean I have to like it though!

    How will I know what to listen to on my I-Pod now?

    Sighhh!

    Best of luck, and many thanks!

  30. 2009 Yankees September 17th, 2009 at 7:07 pm

    This HAS to be an April’s Fools Joke. I called the Boston Globe and they have heard of you! Well, wishful thinking….

    If it is true, THANK YOU for everything Pete. I got to meet and talk to you a lot last year in Scranton. You’re a cool guy. If this is a joke….boy are you gonna pay for this! lol

  31. Stultus Magnus (R.I.P. Jim Carroll) September 17th, 2009 at 7:07 pm

    And all the best to LoHud, I hope the paper finds a way to make it.

  32. David September 17th, 2009 at 7:07 pm

    Pete – you have no idea how much we’ll miss you! Your blog is phenomenal – the best there is. And you’re a class act.

    But the Red Sox??? Really???

  33. Uncle Ellsworth (be nice, until it's not time to be nice) September 17th, 2009 at 7:08 pm

    This one’s for you Pete

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIe0QTzSTKw

    So when is the Shove-off Party at Foley’s??????

  34. swingsandmisses September 17th, 2009 at 7:09 pm

    Good luck Pete.

    As a Boston resident and Globe reader, it surprises me how slow and non-detailed their baseball coverage can be at times and how few comments they typically attract on their blogs and gameday threads, and I’m sure they’ve hired you to remedy that. I’ll miss your insights and behind the scenes stories on the Yankees.

  35. The Fair Pole September 17th, 2009 at 7:09 pm

    Pete-Good luck with the new gig. It’s easy to understand why you made this decision. Family and a better opportunity. Who here would not make the same decision, if given the chance.

    At the same time, THE RED SOX :(
    John Henry, Epstein, Ortiz and Youk……………A kick to the gut and very pain.
    As a die-hard Yankees fan for many years, I can not wish the sox success while you cover the team. I’m sure you understand :)
    Bona Fortuna!!!

  36. yankee_diva September 17th, 2009 at 7:09 pm

    This truely bites. I read this constantly during the day to stay up on yankee news. And going to the sox? I do feel betrayed. Good luck with those lunatics. Now who will we have?

  37. Dassit September 17th, 2009 at 7:09 pm

    You’ve done a great job Pete. Thanks and good luck. Don’t be easy on the “I’m not a magic person”-kid okay?

    Maybe LoHud should give Chad Jennings a call.

  38. thomas September 17th, 2009 at 7:09 pm

    Good Luck Pete. Being back with family is best even if it was for the same pay! Better offer and it iceing on the cake!! Look out for some of those Boston fans, it may take them awhile to get to trust you.

  39. Heyya September 17th, 2009 at 7:09 pm

    nomas said it best.

    I don’t post much but have visited this site at LEAST 5 times a day for the past couple couple years.

    We all appreciate your, essentially, 24 hour coverage of the team. I can wake up at 3am, and wonder to myself if there will be a new post, or two, on this blog.

    Thank you.

  40. Skinnyhead September 17th, 2009 at 7:09 pm

    Wow! A bunch of people are gonna have to get a life now.

  41. Uncle Ellsworth (be nice, until it's not time to be nice) September 17th, 2009 at 7:09 pm

    Wait! I’m assuming Pete will be leaving after the season ends. True False

  42. rover September 17th, 2009 at 7:10 pm

    Pete:
    you have earned the opportunity to make your life what it needs to be. I wish you the best. Our loss is Bostons gain. The best to you.
    Feel free to read along with us here, and we won’t trash you to badly if you want to post some Blowsox rubbish.

    Thankyou for making my Yankee experience all it could be.

  43. Jim September 17th, 2009 at 7:10 pm

    Pete,
    Congratulations on the promotion, and good luck. It’s a shame we’re losing you to Boston, but you’ll do great wherever you go.

    The things you’ve done with this blog are amazing. It was you that inspired my friend John and I to start our own blog. This is the first place I come whenever I turn the computer on because the info is always reliable, the analysis is in-depth, and the mood is funny.

    Thank you, and, once again, good luck.
    Jim

  44. Stevie September 17th, 2009 at 7:11 pm

    Peter,

    The next time Youkalis charges the mound, I hope you are as tough on him, as you were rightfully so on Jorge. It won’t be easy, if you think we’re unbalanced, wait until southie startes screaming at ya.

  45. MB September 17th, 2009 at 7:11 pm

    My heart just dropped into my stomach. Good luck Pete. Congrats on getting to be more near your family.

  46. pinstriped September 17th, 2009 at 7:11 pm

    I read everyday, but do not write often. Pete, best of luck. As a big yanks fan living down south, I’ve always appreciated your great reporting.

    Sox fans don’t deserve your incite…

  47. Brian (Red Sox Fan) September 17th, 2009 at 7:11 pm

    I don’t know whether to be happy or sad. I occasionally drop in to this blog because it is so good. Pete, your informative updates and wry humor are a joy. Because of this, the Lohud blog became a fun place for me to keep track of “The Evil Empire” and its rabid fans (many of whom have treated me quite civilly).

    So, for that reason, I hope that the blog remains an interesting place to visit. But LoHud’s loss is Boston’s gain. I look forward to following your work with the Globe. You do outstanding work, and will enhance my enjoyment of the Sox.

    But I fear that something will be missing on the Yankee end of the spectrum.

    Best of luck in your new endeavor, and welcome aboard.

  48. RayVT September 17th, 2009 at 7:12 pm

    I wish you the very best Pete! You are one classy guy and I can’t tell you how much I have appreciated you and your blog. I certainly understand how family ties into things! We will miss you!! Thanks Again for your great work and efforts to inform us! Best of luck! You will be missed!!
    Ray

  49. EvoLuTioN September 17th, 2009 at 7:12 pm

    I guess ill be the only one looking at the positives.

    See ya later Pete, enjoy the darkside. Appreciate all the coverage you have provided until now, however a new point of view will be nice. Hopefully they can keep up with the news and bring lineups

  50. Alex September 17th, 2009 at 7:12 pm

    This saddens me greatly, as I have been reading the blog multiple times a day. Is your successor at LoHud going to continue the blog? I’ll surely miss your subtle humor :(.

  51. austinmac September 17th, 2009 at 7:13 pm

    I shall miss your information,insight and humor. That’s why you got the new job, of course, and I am sure your new readers will enjoy these qualities as well. Congratulations for advancement in a tough market. You should be proud(but humbly so of course like all the Yankee players). Let us know your new blog so we can help your new readers understand why their support of the Sox is misplaced.

  52. Uncle Ellsworth (be nice, until it's not time to be nice) September 17th, 2009 at 7:13 pm

    Pete just turned every loyal Yankee fan reader into a troll.
    Pete’s Boston Blog Battles will be epic!

    Christia25 now has homefield

  53. EvoLuTioN September 17th, 2009 at 7:13 pm

    also wouldnt surprise me if arod hate appears on boston.com now

  54. steve September 17th, 2009 at 7:14 pm

    Thanks for everything. You did great work here.

    Happy trails.

  55. 51Yankees September 17th, 2009 at 7:14 pm

    You can’t do this now! Why not wait till the yanks are champs next month?

  56. Mike September 17th, 2009 at 7:14 pm

    It was a joy reading your blogs and sad to see you go. Best of luck in Boston!

  57. Lasvgasghost September 17th, 2009 at 7:14 pm

    Pete,

    I am new to the blog this year and love it. I am not a poster but I do like to read the comments from all the regulars.

    Your insight on the team is second to none and want to post today to give you my appreciation of this.

    Thanks again, good luck to you and your family.

  58. Guy Incognito September 17th, 2009 at 7:14 pm

    Pete, we’ll miss you. The LoHud Yankees blog was one of the pioneering sportswriter blogs, and whether you realize it or not this blog inspired many of its readers to blog themselves. Thanks for your dedication to this thing. You were blogging from all hours of the day and night, from airports far and wide, Tampa to Toronto to Texas.

    The Boston Globe and its Sox readership are real lucky to be getting you. I wonder how your reception will be up there, but if you cover the Red Sox like you cover the Yankees, no sweat.

    Good luck!

  59. Dano September 17th, 2009 at 7:14 pm

    Pete, from here in England, and I’m sure the world over, Yankee fans wish you the very best in your new job, the Boston part of it notwithstanding. I rarely comment because I don’t feel I can add much, but I spend hours a week reading your witty coverage, and the comments of (varying) quality.

    It is hard to see how this place will be anywhere near as good in future. A truly sad day, Pete.

  60. Mark in Tampa September 17th, 2009 at 7:15 pm

    Okay, its been 15 minutes now. You can post the “I was just kidding” update.

    Please do, otherwise I am going to have to find something to do for the 23 hours a day otherwise spent on this site! :)

  61. Tom in N.J. September 17th, 2009 at 7:15 pm

    I wish you the best, Peter. This has to be a dream come true for you. Good luck to a great writer!

    And good luck to whom ever replaces you, they have some big shoes to fill.

  62. Stevie September 17th, 2009 at 7:15 pm

    Peter = Mercenary

  63. Pollyanna "Porkchop" Pough September 17th, 2009 at 7:15 pm

    peter abraham will bang his fist

  64. 100 pitches of fun... September 17th, 2009 at 7:15 pm

    Damn this stinks. Good luck Pete!! You did a great job with the blog and gave us so much clubhouse info that we wouldn’t of heard otherwise. Enjoy following those animals also known as the dirty Sox. Pete is a traitor just like Damon was. JK!!

  65. Angel - A tale told by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing September 17th, 2009 at 7:15 pm

    :(

    I hope the Boston Globe and Red Sox fans appreciate the asset they’re getting in you. I’ve been here from almost the beginning and I really do selfishly feel a bit upset now.

    Good luck, Pete. In these uncertain times you really have to look out for yourself, so that’s perfectly understandable anyone who gives you grief for that is just being shortsighted. As someone who has none of my family close to me, I understand how good an opportunity that was to pass up.

    I wish you nothing but the best for your career and personal life. Thanks for the above and beyond time and dedication you’ve given this blog. It won’t be the same without you. *sniff*

  66. PD September 17th, 2009 at 7:15 pm

    I have to admit, I will miss a little bit changing my names and making fake e-mail addresses to avoid having my posts get deleted. Although I often disagree with some of your baseball views Pete, you did a superlative job covering the team and keeping us up to date on all things Yankees. The blog really won’t be the same with you heading it. I honestly think you are making the wrong decision though and I think you will regret it. But that is my amateur opinion. Anyhow, good luck.

  67. Uncle Ellsworth (be nice, until it's not time to be nice) September 17th, 2009 at 7:16 pm

    two weeks notice = bad movie

  68. Trever September 17th, 2009 at 7:16 pm

    You traitor. At this point in the year how dare you leave.

  69. aaron z September 17th, 2009 at 7:17 pm

    WOW!! Boston wins again, I cant take it anymore anything good we have they take it away,

    Good luck Pete, I have been a reading your Blog from day 1 !! I enjoyed reading 98 % of your posts..

    I actually read up on the red sox almost everyday thru the globe, so I’m looking forward to enjoy reading your stuff..

  70. Ibrahim September 17th, 2009 at 7:17 pm

    Oh man!

    I’ve been reading this blog for nearly 2 years! I must check it like 10 times a day because of how great you update it Pete.

    You are awesome and I wish you the best of luck. I usually do a google for “red sox blog” so I can see what others say whenever the Yankees are playing them… and it’s always so lame. So this is a REAL boon for them! As many people have shown, it’s not just having a “blog” but having a person who understands how to blog properly.

    I’ll still frequent here… I just hope here is as frequent as it used to be!

    Good travels! We’ll all miss you!

  71. Edwin September 17th, 2009 at 7:17 pm

    This is the first blog I added as a feed, and anything Yankee-centric I needed to know I come here first…So with that said, as a Yankee fan I don’t know who to go to now to get my Yankee fix but no one can begrudge you making a choice to improve your quality of life and career….Good Luck…

  72. Jeter2007 September 17th, 2009 at 7:17 pm

    WOW. An a-bomb just dropped. I’m happy as h3ll for you Pete… I’m just shocked how it turned out — you covering the red sox. Good luck and God bless Pete! I visit your site a few times everyday so it will be missed much.

  73. Billy C. September 17th, 2009 at 7:17 pm

    Traitor

  74. Hensley Muellens Blast Pal September 17th, 2009 at 7:17 pm

    Best of luck Pete! It has been awesome having you here and the blog had become my first and last stop for anything Yankees, do us a parting favor and give Varitek a DDT when you get up there. All the best!

  75. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Montero Fanaticus Primus September 17th, 2009 at 7:17 pm

    Wow.

  76. jeter4mvp!! September 17th, 2009 at 7:18 pm

    this is my first full year of devote following of your throughly informative and well written blog. i too, wish you the best of luck in Hell now that you are dead to me…

    (just kidding, best of luck and you will be missed!)

  77. Bill K September 17th, 2009 at 7:18 pm

    this is devastating news.

    Pete,

    You are the man, you deserve the best and I’m thrilled for you and your family. My most sincere thanks for making my baseball experience so amazing through your dedication and spectacular coverage. Best of luck man, your best days are ahead of you.

  78. Wang IS Taiwan September 17th, 2009 at 7:18 pm

    Congrats on moving up to a larger paper, Pete! You deserve it. It’s a shame it won’t be with the Yanks, though. Things will never be the same here again, but I’m going to appreciate what we had with you for a few short years. I think I found you a couple of months after you started blogging and it made my life sports life so much richer.

    I understand the desire to be near family. We will miss you beyond words.

    Go get ‘em!

  79. Ralph September 17th, 2009 at 7:18 pm

    Pete,

    I’m in the same boat as a few other people. I have rarely posted on here, but I check the blog at least 10-15 times everyday. Thanks for all the great work you have done for us and good luck with the new job. Not gonna lie, this kinda ruined the off day a bit. Hopefully your replacement will give us half of what you have. Best of luck.

  80. Lee23 September 17th, 2009 at 7:18 pm

    Wow.
    Best of luck Peter.

    I’m chiming in that I’ve been reading this blog several times a day for a few years but just recently started posting.

    And as HEYYA said, if kids or coffee wake me up in the middle of the night, my first stop is right here.

    I’m kinda surprised you won’t be finishing out the season in New York.
    It’s got to be tough coming into a new clubhouse, making new connections, tugging new story lines, etc. in the middle of a play off race….

    I will miss your wit and insights.

  81. Tim N. September 17th, 2009 at 7:18 pm

    It’s a well-earned promotion and you will do well. As someone who’s in a similarly changing business (I’m also a freelance writer) and an eldest, you made the right call and congrats for getting such a terrific opportunity.

    (Other shoe dropping in 3..2..1..)
    This also makes me very sad. I know you’ll do well at the Globe because I’ve seen through the blog what a good writer you are, so it’s natural that greater ops would present themselves. But even though I don’t comment very often, I am a very avid reader of the blog, have been since beginning of last year, checking in several times each day, even in the off-season. I’ll miss your work with the Yanks very much.

    On the other hand, it’s about time the Globe got a good writer.

    Knock ‘em dead, you’ll be missed.

  82. boy who blocked his own shot September 17th, 2009 at 7:18 pm

    Rarely post Pete, but always loved the blog. You’ll be missed. Best of luck to you.

  83. Dan Mac September 17th, 2009 at 7:18 pm

    Pete – really sorry to hear that.. I don’t really post, but read the blog at least a couple of times daily. This has been the best yanks blog out there IMO. Completely understand the professional decision and hope it works out well for you. Best of luck to you (but the Red Sox..?????… oh the irony).

  84. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes September 17th, 2009 at 7:19 pm

    Wow. I have to say that the fact that you’re going to the Globe and covering the Sox does sting a little bit more than it otherwise might, but of course I recognize that the Westchester Journal is pales in comparison to the globe on a prestige scale.

    I can only say thank you and best of luck, Peter. And I definitely dig the fact that you are trying to be closer to your family.

    Man, this couldn’t have come at a worse time with the playoffs only a couple weeks away.

    My vote is for Feinsand.

  85. Jim Pir-one September 17th, 2009 at 7:19 pm

    stevie -

    Pete’s not a mercenary. He is a true Red Sox fan.

    m -

    It looks like the Imps have decided they are going to further cheat the Angels. Cheap Strike 3 to Bobby Abreu.

  86. Wait till the ALDS September 17th, 2009 at 7:19 pm

    You’ve done a great job covering the team Pete. Good luck to you.

    So someone will continue the blog, though?

  87. Scott F September 17th, 2009 at 7:19 pm

    I feel the same way I did when I found out Mike and the Mad Dog were splitting up. The way I look at the Yankees will be different. I checked this blog as often as I checked my email. You’re a great and funny writer Pete, the Globe is lucky to get you. I hope someday we’ll get a book out of you someday, you’ll be in a very unique position to write one. Your fans in your old town of Lebanon CT wish you the best.

    Scott F

    Uncle Ellsworth (be nice, until it’s not time to be nice) September 17th, 2009 at 7:13 pm

    Pete just turned every loyal Yankee fan reader into a troll.
    Pete’s Boston Blog Battles will be epic!

    ==============

    Exactly, watch out as we storm your blog…if no registration is required, of course.

    Nice Uncle E, listening to “Better Things” now on the computer.

  89. Stevie September 17th, 2009 at 7:19 pm

    Now you’ll have to suck up to Theo, instead of Cashman.

  90. '58Fan September 17th, 2009 at 7:20 pm

    Pete:

    As a life-long Californian, it has only been since the internet that I can really enjoy my team. So, many of the references to NY sites and events are beyond me. Nevertheless, you have brought me closer, much closer, to my life-long love. Like so many others, I check your blog as many as five times a day. You will be missed, regardless of who takes your place.

    Your blog has been just phenomenal! What a joy for us for all of us far from NY to be able to feel so close to the team. Thank You!

  91. Wait till the ALDS September 17th, 2009 at 7:20 pm

    Please don’t root for the Sox in the playoffs though. ;-)

  92. Ben September 17th, 2009 at 7:20 pm

    If this is true, I feel extremely betrayed. I guess sometimes it is all about the money.

  93. Jeter2007 September 17th, 2009 at 7:20 pm

    I hope Lohud plans on a good replacement. They would lose a lot of fans if they didn’t.

    Someone tell me where do we turn to next for NYY news?

  94. Yanks fan in Austin September 17th, 2009 at 7:21 pm

    Good for you Pete. You really deserve it. I have really enjoyed the job you did here with this blog and in print. Best of luck. Now we’ll have a good Red Sox blog to check out. All the best.

  95. Ham Fighters September 17th, 2009 at 7:22 pm

    pete! so sad to see you go. i didnt always agree with you, but you work was always top-notch! this has been my source for yankees news for almost 2 years now and im going to miss that and im going to miss hearing your ‘voice’

    all good things must come to an end and so it will be for your blog.

    as an aside, i have just come to the decision to move back to the albany area to be closer to my friends and family and i already cant wait to get back, so i know how great this move must feel for you in so many ways.

    i cant thank you enough for all the work you’ve put in here, far more than what the LoHud could have asked you to do and i hope the red socks fans will appreciate the excellent work you do when you get going up there.

    please appologize in advance to your globe readers that many of us ‘trolls’ will be checking in on your blog there for updates on the enemy!

    best of luck and see you in october!

  96. Jdog September 17th, 2009 at 7:22 pm

    NO PETE PLEASE DONT GO!

  97. Mark September 17th, 2009 at 7:22 pm

    Wow, definitely a kick in the gut reading this but I certainly can’t hold a grudge – you are doing what is best for you and your career. To get a significant promotion in this economic climate is a testament to your skill. I have really enjoyed reading this blog over the last several years(especially when I am supposed to be working!). Best of luck in Boston Pete, we will miss the heck out of you.

    Sox still swallow though. ;)

  98. kevin September 17th, 2009 at 7:22 pm

    i’m going to need a new homepage, and something to cheer me up. best of luck though. you are a great talent.

  99. ADam September 17th, 2009 at 7:22 pm

    I knew this day would come… Good Luck Pete, Hope the readers in Boston realize what they are getting…

  100. John September 17th, 2009 at 7:22 pm

    Thank you Pete.

  101. Bill September 17th, 2009 at 7:22 pm

    Absolutely speechless. What will I do at work now? WORK?!? Good luck, Pete.

  102. Mike Ashmore September 17th, 2009 at 7:22 pm

    Congratulations to Pete on getting a new gig. With the way things are in this industry, I don’t think people understand how impressive a move like this is.

    Pete has done a job that…I don’t think people have any understanding of how difficult or time-consuming something like that is. To be mentioned in the same sentence as him was flattering and somewhat embarrassing every single time.

    And to whoever made that comment about me, thank you. Also flattering and embarrassing.

  103. Steve September 17th, 2009 at 7:22 pm

    omg i’m gonna cry!

    who’s gonna replace you pete?!

    the blog isn’t going to be the same… when people cover for you it’s never the same!

    how saddening :(

  104. Rick (Columbus) September 17th, 2009 at 7:22 pm

    Pete,
    Wow that hurt! Good luck to you in Boston. I am sure you will be great.

  105. m September 17th, 2009 at 7:22 pm

    Pete,

    New thread please. This one’s just too morbid. Feels like someone died. Seriously.

  106. Joe September 17th, 2009 at 7:23 pm

    Does anyone recommend another good yankees beat writer blog? This blog was one of the best, and now petes gone =(

  107. Paul September 17th, 2009 at 7:23 pm

    Thanks for the great blog….Good luck, Pete. I will definately have to start reading it every day. Is it the Boston Dirt Dogs site you’ll be taking over?

  108. Billy From Brooklyn September 17th, 2009 at 7:23 pm

    I feel like the LoHud is trading Derek Jeter :(

    You will be missed. Good luck, have fun.

  109. Josiah from NC September 17th, 2009 at 7:23 pm

    I rarely comment on here because I as well, don’t feel like I would add much to the great conversation that fills this blog daily. I go to college in NC and it’s really hard to find any diehard Yankees fans around here who share the same passion for the game and the Yankees team as I do. Since I discovered this site a year ago, this has been my source of Yankees news, and I enjoy reading through the great commentors on this blog along with the outstanding coverage that Pete does for this site.

    I wish you the best Pete Abe, and that you enjoy covering the Red Sox, and that the fans treat you well. I will miss your coverage, insight, and professionalism that you provide on a daily basis. It is truly awesome to have a beat writer who gives the readers the feel that they are actually within the clubhouse, and you seriously do it.

    Thanks for the countless work you did for this blog, we will miss you

  110. Greg D September 17th, 2009 at 7:23 pm

    Pete,

    Best of luck to you in your new job. Living close to family is important and you are certainly blessed to have the opportunity to do so. You have done a great job in the blog and reporting the Yankees. We will all miss your great sense of humor and the your insight on the Yankees. God Bless you as you move forward in your next phase of life!!!

  111. John Cerra September 17th, 2009 at 7:23 pm

    Sorry to see you go Ken. Your work has been excellent, and you deserve what it takes to make you happy.

    But Boston? C’mon, there are plenty of other places you could have gone other than “the dark side:)”

  112. Stevie September 17th, 2009 at 7:23 pm

    Christia25 + Peter = Match made in Green Sardine Can.

    I wonder if Pete will constantly complain about the cheap homers at the Band Box.

  113. Joe (Utica) September 17th, 2009 at 7:23 pm

    Pete good luck… I hope you and your family have a wonderful time in Boston. Sort of ironic though isn’t it? It could have been the Washington post or something. This is my favorite website (blog or not). So selfishly I hope whom ever replaces you like blogging as much because I need my updates. Good luck Peter. All of Utica, NY is a fan of yours trust me I know the mayor.

  114. Richie September 17th, 2009 at 7:23 pm

    The hardest working blogger in America will now be covering the RS. That isn’t right.

    Good luck, Pete.

    A note to the Journal News: it’s almost certain that this move will cost you a great deal of web traffic. You blew it.

  115. Jeter2007 September 17th, 2009 at 7:24 pm

    THANK YOU PETE! YOU WILL BE MISSED!
    (feels like i’m losing a friend)

  116. Dave September 17th, 2009 at 7:24 pm

    I’m honestly speechless. I don’t look anywhere else for Yankee news anymore and I’m fairly certain your coverage is irreplaceable. Regardless no one has earned this more than you Pete. Best of luck to you. Thanks for the great work.

  117. Baseball Guy September 17th, 2009 at 7:24 pm

    Pete,

    Wow. What a shock. I’m an occasional poster, but a daily reader – many times throughout the day. I’m a Yankee fan since 1977 when I was 8. Your blog has been the place I go for my Yankees news for the past few years.

    This saddens a lot of people, and especially me. There are good Yankee Blogs out there, but none campared to your work.

    I had a feeling this was coming a few days ago – you responded in the blog to a poster, “This takes the fun out of this profession” or something like that. I read those words and said to myself, “That’s Pete saying goodbye…”

    A few times I e-mailed you with Yankee or baseball questions – I was always amazed when you e-mailed me back.

    It’s been a pleasure – I wish you only the best. Only the best always.

    I just hope (selfishly) that the only World Series’ you see are on the TV or in the stands in the Bronx. I can’t bear another Red Sox championship (smile).

    Be good Pete. YOU WILL BE GREATLY MISSED!!!!

  118. Brian from PA September 17th, 2009 at 7:24 pm

    I know I’m not a regular poster here, but I read the blog multiple times a day. I’ve gotta say, this is quite a loss. Best of luck in Boston Pete, it’s a shame you’re leaving the Yanks at a time like this. I only hope there will be a Yankees beat-writer who keeps a detailed and informative blog updated as often as you have. I have this page bookmarked on my laptop and on my cell phone because it’s the first place I check for any Yankees news. It’s been great. Thanks the years of a great place to read about the Yankees.

  119. EQ10 September 17th, 2009 at 7:24 pm

    Pete – Although I only posted on here a handful of times, your blog has been my number 1 destination since its inception. It was the first place I checked in the morning and the last at night. I wish you the best of luck at your new gig. I hope Lohud is able to find someone half as dedicated as you to keep the blog going in the future.

  120. The Damon-ator September 17th, 2009 at 7:25 pm

    Good luck Pete, seems like a good career and family move. Your coverage will be missed.

    As for the whining about loyalty and other such nonsense in these comments – gimme a break on that malarky. It’s kinda sweet fans still have such romantic notions about baseball etc however removed from reality they may be, but both players and reporters gotta look out for themselves and their families first. It’s a job and when it comes to your job I’m sure most people here would have done the same thing in a similar position.

  121. Thrillington September 17th, 2009 at 7:25 pm

    And with that, the page I have refreshed the most over the past three years will be disappearing from my desktop in about two weeks.

    Pete, the amazing thing about your blog experience with us readers is you’ve narrated the Yankees to the point where you’ve been the 26th man on the team for many of us. It is impossible to not feel sad, as though an era has ended, but at the same time to recognize how you have changed the field of beat reporting. I am so appreciative of the amazing things you’ve done, and you should be proud.

    Wishing you the best of luck in Boston. They are lucky to have you and I look forward to reading you there.

    And, enjoy your family. You’ve got your priorities straight, Peter Abraham.

  122. Jim Rice's Bad Role Models September 17th, 2009 at 7:25 pm

    Curse of the Pete-bino?

  123. JS September 17th, 2009 at 7:25 pm

    Awww, mannn!!! Can’t you wait until after the Yankees with the World Series???

    Good luck!

  124. BFARBS September 17th, 2009 at 7:25 pm

    Pete- i have read this blog multiple times every day for over 2 years. i dont comment reugularly, but I am only 15 years old. I am a sophmore in high school, and I can honestly say that this blog has inspired me to pursue a career in sportswriting. This blog has been the heart and soul of my yankee-fandom, and I have nothing but respect for you and your decision. I will be saddened not to have the blog to turn to whenever i want a game recap, a story about someone’s personal life, or just an honest down to earth opinion from a really great guy. you will be missed peter.

    best of luck

  125. Gloria September 17th, 2009 at 7:25 pm

    omg…this can’t be true. The Yanks are about to enter the playoffs with a better chance of winning than they’ve had in awhile and we won’t have you to take us through it?? I can hardly believe it. I hope whoever they choose to replace you is as funny, erudite (o.k. in-the-know) & as nuanced as you, Pete. Best of luck. I can’t imagine how it’s going to feel for you to cover the (hated) Sox (I mean Youk & Papelbum, really??). I guess it will just be a job for awhile until you can make the same connections with their players and beat writers. It won’t be the same for you or us I’m sure.

    Best of luck.

  126. Jason D September 17th, 2009 at 7:25 pm

    You will be missed. Boston got a great journalist. Best of Luck.

  127. Mark September 17th, 2009 at 7:26 pm

    I wish you the best. Your writing and blog were the most inciteful coverage of the Yankees by far. I’m sure some will consider you a traitor, but any sane person would jump at your new opportunity. I hope someone out there will be my go to source for yankee info and commentary. I will appreciate the next two weeks of your blog even more (if that is possible),and will check you out for the best analysis of the Sox in the future. Once again, good luck and hope you work for a major New York paper down the road.

  128. Sam September 17th, 2009 at 7:26 pm

    Pete, if this is true, your name is mud.

  129. Javi September 17th, 2009 at 7:26 pm

    I am thrilled to see you get such an excellent opportunity, Peter, but am absolutely crushed that you will no longer be covering the Yankees. You and Bronx Banter are literally my only sources of news for all matters NYY. In a way, I am glad that you will be covering the Red Sox. Since I generally want to know what is going on with them, I know that there will be a top source of information on them.

    While I am not in the news business, I have been able to pick up on the fact that you have been a pioneer in the sports blogging world. We were very lucky to have you. Please try to move on to the NY Times, would you?

  130. NYDynasty September 17th, 2009 at 7:26 pm

    Congratulations Pete and I wish you the very best in your new assignment…Your work here has been outstanding and will be very much missed…..There is many of threads I have started on the Yankee message boards based on the information I was getting thanks to you, in fact, I would always refer to you as the incomparable Pete Abraham…..

    Best wishes to you and to your family, oh, and I hope you never get to see one win from the team you will be covering…..

  131. jonnycat September 17th, 2009 at 7:26 pm

    Whoa, ouch…. One thing to leave a yankee gig, another to leave during a playoff run for….

    Anyway, good luck…

  132. gargoyle September 17th, 2009 at 7:26 pm

    Now you can stop pretending you’re not a RS fan. You can’t get hired to cover the RS unless you are first and foremost a RS fan.

  133. Samantha September 17th, 2009 at 7:27 pm

    Pete –

    Have been following here and on Twitter for awhile but don’t usually post. Good luck at the Globe! You will definitely be missed around here. I hope your replacement knows the kind of shoes (s)he has to fill.

  134. BBFan September 17th, 2009 at 7:27 pm

    Wish you all the best Pete.
    You are making a career move and I am happy for you.

  135. PY September 17th, 2009 at 7:27 pm

    Someone wake up the Big Stein and tell him we need the team to pitch in on this one…

    In all seriousness, thanks for three terrific years. As this season has worn on, I’ve grown closer to this team through your writing, and as a result, close to this blog. You will be sorely missed, especially as this magical season comes to its end. Thanks again.

  136. jscape2000 September 17th, 2009 at 7:28 pm

    You’ve been great.
    I especially appreciate the time you’ve taken to answer emails and to let us plug our own blogs while pinch hitting. I’ve never heard of another beat writer willing to do that, certainly not to the extent you have.

    You deserve the best. Good luck.

  137. EvoLuTioN September 17th, 2009 at 7:28 pm

    Hopefully we get a real Yankee fan just in time for October :D

  138. Stevie September 17th, 2009 at 7:28 pm

    it’s a little hard to type right now, with this knife in my back.

  139. Stop The Walks September 17th, 2009 at 7:28 pm

    Enjoy the a$$ whipping the Yanks give your new club in the postseason. Good luck, but now you play for the other team. You understand, right?

  140. Angel - A tale told by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing September 17th, 2009 at 7:29 pm

    Damn Pete, you’re going to have to face the New York beat writers in the next Boston vs. New York match-up. :-P

  141. crawdaddy September 17th, 2009 at 7:29 pm

    Kind of seen the handwriting on the wall based on some of your recent comments. Anyhow good luck to you.

  142. Marc September 17th, 2009 at 7:29 pm

    Pete,

    Gotta admit it stings that it’s the Red Sox you’re leaving for. But business is business. Just like when a team lets a free agent you love move on. I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate the way you’ve changed the way I follow my favorite team in all of sports. Revolutionize is the first word to come to mind. I really appreciate all your hard work. This blog was second to none and I really hope the journal has the sense to do everything in their power to keep it going and maintain the standard that you’ve established. Your blogging shoes are almost as big as Mariano’s closing shoes. Not shoes I’d want to try an fill. I feel bad for the new guy. The regulars have some lofty expectations.

    That said I wish you the best in your endeavors but I gotta admit that it hurts a bit to lose a guy like you and know that Boston fans are gonna be getting such a great writer. It’s been fun and don’t think I’ won’t be reading your material when I’m spying on the other side.

    Marc

  143. Julie September 17th, 2009 at 7:29 pm

    Hi, Congrats and Good Luck. I just started reading this year and now check several times a day. Will really miss your insight.

  144. Paco Dooley September 17th, 2009 at 7:29 pm

    This is a joke, right? But it’s not April 1st. I certainly hope this is a joke because it’s gonna leave a void in my life!

  145. Buddy Biancalana September 17th, 2009 at 7:29 pm

    Good Luck Pete! I’m shocked you won’t be covering the post season for the Yankees, but you will be covering the Sox. Strange timing.

    You have done an amazing job, you will be deeply missed.

    Sam Borden, come on down!

  146. S.A.--Serenity Now September 17th, 2009 at 7:29 pm

    What!!!

    Okay, now that I got that out of the way, best wishes and good luck to you Peter. I am thrilled for you yet at the same time sad to see you leaving the Yankees beat. I honestly appreciate all the hard you you put into covering this team and in dealing with us crazy fans.

    Well, the good news is that you can probably let loose with your A-Rod snarkiness working for boston.com. j/k :)

    Good luck and thank you for everything.

  147. Danny September 17th, 2009 at 7:30 pm

    Its like a friend is moving away…

    best of luck Pete…Wish you were going to be around through the yankees playoffs…

  148. Giuseppe Franco September 17th, 2009 at 7:30 pm

    My guess is Sam Borden will take over the blog.

  149. Eric September 17th, 2009 at 7:30 pm

    Oh, man, this sucks. I check your blog more often than any other source of Yankees news. I copy your funny comments all the time and send it to my friends. You will be greatly missed. I’m happy for you personally, though, and wish you the best.

  150. Erik A September 17th, 2009 at 7:30 pm

    Son of a gun! Have fun at the Globe. Those Boston scum don’t deserve you (kidding).

  151. Wait till the ALDS September 17th, 2009 at 7:31 pm

    And the beat goes on.

    New thread.

  152. Shawn September 17th, 2009 at 7:31 pm

    Congratulations and good luck with the Boston Globe Pete. The Globe fans are getting a great new writer and you will be greatly missed. I wish I had discovered this blog before this year as it has become my favorite place to come for Yankees news and updates. I’ve even become more comfortable with commenting lately and have been able to share some of my opinions here. I wish I could have gone to the blog excursion to the Scranton game earlier this year, but maybe we can do one next year here in Rochester. Best of luck and thanks for everything!

  153. Pokey September 17th, 2009 at 7:31 pm

    Pete,
    Good luck in Beantown. I’ve really enjoyed reading your blog for the last 2.5 years.

    Lohud,
    Two words: Chad Jennings!!

  154. The Damon-ator September 17th, 2009 at 7:31 pm

    btw a book a few years from now with pete contrasting his experience covering the Yankees and then the Red Sox, particularly the blogging aspect, would make for a real interesting read!

  155. Chris September 17th, 2009 at 7:31 pm

    Pete,
    I have enjoyed your blog for the last two years, and completely understand that you have to take care of your bottom line first. You will be missed and I am sorry to see you go. I will continue to read this blog and read your new blog from Afghanistan.

  156. craig s September 17th, 2009 at 7:32 pm

    NO!!!!! Say it ain’t so !!!!

    ok, if it’s really true, then all the best and many thanks for your work – it made this west coast transplanted yankee fan feel so much closer to the Bronx everyday…..

  157. winner11 September 17th, 2009 at 7:32 pm

    I live in the Yankee void they call Central PA – no YES network, no daily newspaper coverage, only home feeds from XM. This blog is the single best thing to come along in 10 years – I have followed daily for the entire year for the past 2-3 years and loved it. Hope someone comes along who provide the great coverage along with the humor, music, etc. Good luck…

  158. josh September 17th, 2009 at 7:32 pm

    Pete,
    I first started reading this great blog during spring training of this year. ever since, i have been attached to it and completely reliant on it. it is one of my RSS feeds that updates every 15 minutes (some people might call this slightly obsessive, but its worth it. As soon as i see there is a new post, i can’t wait to read what it says, even if it is just you griping about an airport. you have made watching the yankees so much more enjoyable (even for a lifelong fan). You constantly bring us every piece of news, whether it be as major as a trade or injury, or as trivial as a minor league transaction. you brough fun to reading about everything yankees, and you have done it brilliantly.

    Reading this post, i couldn’t help but feel a hole open up in my heart, and a tear literally come to my eye. It really does feel like a good friend is moving away, never to be heard from again. As a reader and fan it is slightly freightening. Yet if you think this is the right move for you, then as a reader, fan, and friend, i congratulate you, wish you good luck, and have fun.

    Again thank you very much for making my day that much more enjoyable. Good Luck.

  159. TampaGatorYankee September 17th, 2009 at 7:32 pm

    No surprise there, you’ve always been a closet Sox fan.

  160. Good luck in Boston! September 17th, 2009 at 7:32 pm

    Well, this makes your hatred for A-Rod a little easier to understand! Have fun covering the Roid Sox. :)

  161. Joe September 17th, 2009 at 7:32 pm

    I’ve never commented before but I read this blog religiously. I grew up watching the Yankees and since moving away from NY your blog is the only place I go for Yankees news. You will be sorely missed. Good luck.

  162. Paul V September 17th, 2009 at 7:32 pm

    Thanks Pete. We’ll really miss you.

    You have a special, incisive humor and keen powers of observation.

    Your clubhouse reporting, especially, will be greatly missed.

    Best of luck to you.

  163. Mike B. September 17th, 2009 at 7:32 pm

    Pete I have been reading your blog since day one and always are happy to read your coverage and daily blog posts. It sounds like you will be moving on to great things. Please keep us in your current blog in your thoughts and continue doing the great work you have with this blog.

  164. john September 17th, 2009 at 7:33 pm

    Pete,

    This has been the best place for me to get current and accurate Yankee news, as well as a place for passionate fans to vent, rejoice, and share their love for the Yankees. It won’t be the same no matter who they get to replace you. I hope that the newspaper is true to their word and keeps up the high standards that you have set. While your colleagues sometimes go days without an update, you rarely go a few hours. They may have created blogs, you created a community. This blog is the homepage on every computer I own (and my cell phone). I will surely miss your insight and humor. I’ll be sure to check in on your new blog and perhaps post a comment or two. I’ll do my best not to be a “troll”: ) Career opportunities like this cannot be passed up, although I would have liked for you to have been able to at least finish this season.

    Maybe you can do a “guest” post from time to time to check in with us. Best of luck.

    John

  165. Betsy September 17th, 2009 at 7:33 pm

    Wow, Pete…….I can’t believe it. You have to do what’s right for you, however, and you have a fantastic opportunity – good for you. It’s also great that you will be able to spend more time with your parents.

    Maybe next year, when the Sox and Yanks get together, you can be a guest blogger……Whoever replaces you has awfully big shoes to fill.

  166. jon from nj September 17th, 2009 at 7:33 pm

    Booooooo.

  167. Zell September 17th, 2009 at 7:33 pm

    Pete has done a great job for covering the Yankees. I honestly couldn’t believe it when I heard this news. I always relied on him for giving me some of the latest breaking news on our beloved team. I’ve posted here many times, watched your video chats, and was glad to be involved in your guest blogger series.

    Pete actually inspired me to start my own blog. I would also like to thank you for all the help and pointers you gave me when I was first starting it up. I’ll probably still rely on you for my Red Sox injury reports. haha.

    This site was part of my daily routine. I checked this site multiple times a day. You will certainly be missed in the Yankees blogosphere. I wish the best of luck to you Pete in the future.

    Kevin RoZell

  168. testing September 17th, 2009 at 7:33 pm

    yes chad jennings… pete atleast give us that

  169. randy l. September 17th, 2009 at 7:33 pm

    pete-

    congratulations on your well deserved move to the globe.

    i think it’s safe to say if you have a blog at the globe , you’ll still be hearing from us .

    you can’t get away that easy :)

  170. Jason from The Heartland September 17th, 2009 at 7:33 pm

    Wow, Pete, I am shocked and saddened by this news. Clearly, you have a great opportunity and I hope you make the most of it. If Red Sox fans get treated to coverage and attention to detail half as good in the paper and/or a blog that we readers have here, they will be spoiled indeed.

    During the season, I stop by your blog literally several times a day to read stories and readers’ comments. It has become a warehouse of vital information, both from you and some salient readers. It is also a gateway to other excellent Yankees blogs from beat writers and everyday fans blogging. For that, I owe you a debt of gratitude.

    Many thanks also for doing great, unselfish things such as letting bloggers like myself and others guest blog during the off-season. That was extremely kind of you.

    It really is a shame that all this will occur before the Yankees’ playoff run. I’m especially sad about that.

    Unless he has another set assignment with LoHud, Sam Borden would be a great replacement.

    Be well, Pete. We will miss you a ton. Your work here was nothing short of outstanding.

  171. Roger September 17th, 2009 at 7:33 pm

    Damn. Pete, I lived in NYC for 15 years, and had never even sniffed the Journal News. Then I moved to Portland OR, and found your blog, and for the last three years I’ve spent more time on the LoHud site than any other news site. Of course almost all of that traffic has been to your blog, and the rest to the game stories, etc. you link to.

    Best of luck, thanks for the great coverage, and if what you say is true and you don’t root for teams, only stories, I hope the Globe never finds out about your forbidden love for the Patriots.

  172. Uncle Ellsworth (be nice, until it's not time to be nice) September 17th, 2009 at 7:34 pm

    Hey I was serious about some kind of going away party.

  173. ric September 17th, 2009 at 7:34 pm

    “I’ve lived here for ten years and I’d rather be anywhere else in the world than this provincial loony farm.”

    isnt nyc nothing but a collection of boroughs each with their own identity? isnt that provincial?

  174. RMR September 17th, 2009 at 7:35 pm

    Pete

    I am really sorry to hear this news for me, but pleased for you.

    This blog has become part of my daily routine all year round as I follow my beloved Yanks from Texas.

    I grew to really respect and value your reporting and perspective and think the Globe has gained a real talent.

    I do hope that one day you’ll be able to return.

    Best

  175. Scott September 17th, 2009 at 7:35 pm

    Ouch. Like many others here, I read the blog multiple times a day. Pete you are a great writer and always have interesting takes on the Yankees. I am disappointed to hear this but of course happy to know you will be bettering yourself and your family. After your move I will check out your new blog just to see your new take on the Red Sox.

    Take care Pete.

  176. Manger September 17th, 2009 at 7:35 pm

    Hey Pete,

    I’m the guy who came up with the “Hinske with your best shot!” call. Its really a shame that a bigger NYC paper didn’t snag you before the Globe did. You’re probably a hot commodity as far as beat writers go; I never paid any kind of attention to LoHud before you around and now they get several clicks from me a day. Money is money and business is business so its obvious why you’re going, but you’re part of the enemy … so I hate you now!

    Still, I’ve always wished there was a good BoSox blog around so I could check up on how the enemy is doing, I’ll probably still hit you up once or twice a day on boston.com. LoHud better find a damn fine successor to you or they’re going to take a real hit in their readership. This might be almost as big of news for blogs like River Ave Blues as it is for you since folks might migrate over to other sites.

  177. djsunyc September 17th, 2009 at 7:35 pm

    lohud would be smart to offer a young fresh out of college journalist to cover the team and blog. they will be into it from the get go and will probably devote alot of time to this blog…

  178. Paul V September 17th, 2009 at 7:36 pm

    Oh my god. It’s just beginning to sink in.

    Sigh. What a loss.

  179. Larry Schwartz September 17th, 2009 at 7:36 pm

    I feel like I’m losing a best friend. I’ve been reading your blog for the past few years, usually 2 or 3 times a day. Being in the newspaper industry I completely understand your motivation, but you had to go to the Red Sox?!? Any other team would be ok, but the Red Sox makes it even harder to swallow.

    Good Luck, you brought a lot of joy to many, many Yankee fans. Now we’ll have to find a new blog to support.

  180. pat September 17th, 2009 at 7:36 pm

    Good luck Pete! Family and money in that order is as good a reason as any.

    Too bad your free agency didn’t start until after the WS. Would have been nice to finish out the year with you here. :sad:

  181. Brett September 17th, 2009 at 7:36 pm

    This is genuinely upsetting as a Yankee fan and a fan of yours and this blog. Pete you will be greatly missed. Who will I read now.

  182. Andreas September 17th, 2009 at 7:36 pm

    This is extremely sad. While not commenting very often, I’ve followed your blog religiously for years and it’s been great.

    Good luck!

  183. Bhavin September 17th, 2009 at 7:36 pm

    Congrats Pete. Best of luck in Boston. Worst of luck to the Red Sox. Between you, Chad Finn, Tony Mazz, and Amalie Benjamin the Sox will have some great writers. It’ll just be weird to see you on the other team when the beat writers play their softball game.

  184. Seamus September 17th, 2009 at 7:36 pm

    Pete,
    I have never commented on your blog but have been a loyal reader for a while now. You are the best in the business and I will miss reading this blog multiple times a day. It was the only thing that got me through the off-season. Best of luck to you! You are a great writer and I am sure you will be very successful.

  185. E-5 September 17th, 2009 at 7:37 pm

    Only the lowly red sox and their hometown paper would force a Yankee beat writer to leave during the season(jump ship).

    I don’t expect anything less from the bean-towners.

  186. Pat Pearson September 17th, 2009 at 7:37 pm

    Pete thanks for all the news, opinions and insight you’ve provided us for the last 4 seasons.

    Do you have to take the r’s off your keyboard in Boston to write so that they understand it?

  187. Steamer September 17th, 2009 at 7:37 pm

    Pete,

    Thanks for the years of service. It was a pleasure reading your thoughts on the team. Boston just got a great and dedicated reporter. Its just a wicked pissah that I’ll never be able to read your columns again.

    Best of luck but I’m hoping that you never get to cover a game in October.

  188. Brian Nicholas September 17th, 2009 at 7:38 pm

    Pete,
    Longtime reader, never posted. Always appreciated your rational insight especially when the irrational among us seem to predominate. You’ve always managed to keep things in perspective, and never failed to provide yankee info that is second to none. Whether it’s an early line-up posted, or roster moves or thoughts on in-game decisions, your writing has made Yankee baseball more enjoyable. Thanks, and good luck! I may even just have to pop on over to boston.com to see what the other side is up to.

  189. Marc September 17th, 2009 at 7:38 pm

    My boss is stoked. I’ll actually get some work done instead of reading 18 updates a day.

  190. TampaGatorYankee September 17th, 2009 at 7:38 pm

    At least you will really fit in with your fellow A-Rod haters.

  191. Ralph September 17th, 2009 at 7:38 pm

    Good Luck Pete… u did a great job, traitor or not…. reading the blog was the highlight of Yankee news for me!

    GO YANKEES!!!

  192. woodisgood September 17th, 2009 at 7:38 pm

    This great news for you. But shitty shitty news for the lot of us that appreciates your hard work and great writing. Sad sad sad sad sad sad sad sad sad sad……………..

  193. Jeff NJ September 17th, 2009 at 7:39 pm

    Ugh, this is terrible news for all Yankee fans. Good news for you Pete, enjoy being home. Not sure how you go from the Yankees enormous clubhouse to Boston’s cramped one, but it’s an understandable career move.

    You will be greatly missed. I will be interesting to see your take on this years playoffs from behind enemy territory.

  194. YankeeMeg September 17th, 2009 at 7:39 pm

    Pete,

    I wish you the very best of luck. We will miss you dearly. You are a class act and the Globe, I’m sure, is honored to have you, just as we have been. Congrats!

    Megan

  195. Stevie September 17th, 2009 at 7:39 pm

    This is a big blow to Yankee fan Bruce Sprinsteen.

    I guess the next, Marv Albert will be calling games for the Celtics.

  196. Fan of the Melk Man September 17th, 2009 at 7:39 pm

    I am flabbergasted. While I check this site literally 10 times a day and I am tremendously saddened, I am happy for your continued success. Even though it is hard to believe Boston deserves a guy as great as you, they are lucky to have you!

    Thank you for your inexhaustible efforts and great information! Yours will be tough shoes to fill, that’s for sure.

  197. Paul V September 17th, 2009 at 7:39 pm

    Whoever said something about a send-off party – it’s a great idea if you can find a big-enough venue and arrange it. I wonder if the Yankees would let us do it at the stadium in November? Or am I totally delusional?

  198. Stultus Magnus (R.I.P. Jim Carroll) September 17th, 2009 at 7:40 pm

    Yes, Pete, it’s party time.

    Gotta have a going away get LoHud together

  199. 100 pitches of fun... September 17th, 2009 at 7:40 pm

    The curse of P.A? The Yanks have to do something about this. Boston stole our best beat writer now we have to steal Wally!! Is this Boston getting back at us for us getting Tex and all the other players they wanted?

  200. Smacketh Downeth September 17th, 2009 at 7:40 pm

    Good luck, Pete, and thank you for such an informative and entertaining blog.

  201. David Astoria September 17th, 2009 at 7:40 pm

    Pete,

    The best of luck to you. You will be missed here but I know that we will get some good stories about the Red Sox through you. You can’t pass up The Globe and it’s not like Red Sox fans are less passionate about there baseball as we are.

    David

    Lets start planning a going away party for Pete. Email me if anyone else would like to do this.

  202. Yankee Fan in Boston September 17th, 2009 at 7:40 pm

    I find it really, really strange you’re going to the Boston Globe and consider it both a move up, and a safe job prospect.

    Here you are, the vanguard of new sports media, and you’re going to, what appears to many, to be the first of the Big Papers that will fall victim to the New Economy.

    Things probably aren’t good at the LoHud, but they’re not anywhere close to good at the Globe, and you’re giving up a huge fanbase and credibility by leaving this behind.

    It doesn’t seem like a good career move at all. While you’re moving up to a large paper, the future for that and many other papers is terminal. You’re writing the future of sports journalism right here, and you’re walking away from it.

    I wish you the best, and hope that one day, when the papers are finally dead, you’ll be able to somehow cover the Yankees, and return to this great concept of a site.

    Until then, congrats on fulfilling whatever it was you needed to fulfill by going to the Boston Globe. I’m sure you are thrilled.

  203. Donnie September 17th, 2009 at 7:41 pm

    Pete,

    Not a frequent commenter, but a daily, avid reader, who’s wondering what his first click every AM will be now. Did it have to be Boston of all places???? LOL

    Best of luck, and thank you for the fantastic coverage these past 3 years.

    Godspeed.

  204. Tony C September 17th, 2009 at 7:41 pm

    The best place on the web for inside info. Big loss for Yankee fans. Hope your replacement is as dedicated as you’ve been.
    But Boston? Ugg.

  205. Don September 17th, 2009 at 7:41 pm

    Good luck on the new gig. Changing sides! Well it happens all the time, look at Johnny Damon.

  206. Lance September 17th, 2009 at 7:41 pm

    Wow!!!! I’m very sad to hear this. Like a lot of other people I check your Blog atleast 5 times a day. This is my one stop shop for Yankee news. My dad another big Yankee fan is always amazed how I know the latest Yankee news before him…and I live in San Diego!! I’m very sad to hear that you are leaving…to Boston of all places!?!?!? Ugh!!! O well…I now hate 99% of the people in Boston…you being the only 1% that i’ll actually give the time of day to. Good luck!

  207. Mike September 17th, 2009 at 7:41 pm

    I never liked you or your blog.. now I get to hate you and your blog so it works for me. Have fun making the same cracks about Yankees fans as you did about Boston fans for years you hypocrite.

  208. Henry September 17th, 2009 at 7:42 pm

    Congratulations Pete, it won’t be the same here without you but it’s good to see your hard work being rewarded.

  209. WhatALoss! September 17th, 2009 at 7:42 pm

    You have the best blog among all baseball beat writers. Gannett doesn’t deserve a talent like you. Good luck and thanks for all you’ve done.

  210. Tom in N.J. September 17th, 2009 at 7:43 pm

    So the umpires blow 2 calls that Stevie Wonder could have made, and they’re playing the victim card?

  211. trisha - OPPC lifetime member who is missing the worry gene September 17th, 2009 at 7:43 pm

    I have been so ticked all day about the umpiring last night and came on prepared to emote about how some of those jokers continue to get away with changing the outcome of games – and maybe even seasons – and yet there seems to be no accountability.

    Then I read your news Pete and the umpiring issue somehow seems relatively unimportant. Mel is right, it feels like a death in the family. I don’t particularly care that you’re going to cover Boston; what team you cover pales in comparison to the very fact that we are losing you. I do believe you agonized over it and I also believe you made the decision that was the best one for you – as it should be. That said, losing you as our blog leader hurts like hell. Having you leave before the postseason is over hurts even more. Our music of the night has now turned into the Unfinished Symphony. Celebrating number 27 without you just doesn’t feel right.

    I wish you nothing but the best.

    :(

  212. Andy September 17th, 2009 at 7:44 pm

    Best of Luck Pete! I have really enjoyed following over the years…

  213. Neverposted September 17th, 2009 at 7:44 pm

    Pete,

    The very best of luck to you, and of course no luck to the Sox. I wish you the same success you have had with us. The Sox fans are lucky…

  214. The Damon-ator September 17th, 2009 at 7:44 pm

    I thought I’d seen it all a few years ago when Darryl Strawberry was giving Derek Jeter advice in the media (re: relationship w/A-Rod) but the ‘career’ advice being peddled to Pete here is threatening to eclipse that comedy. The man knows what’s good for him and knows more about the newspaper business than anyone here.

  215. TampaGatorYankee September 17th, 2009 at 7:44 pm

    What are the chances we hears ”steroids” chants coming from your fat gullet next year at fenway when a-rod’s up.

  216. Jim Pir-one September 17th, 2009 at 7:44 pm

    Yeah, Pete provides excellent coverage of the Yankees.

    What exactly is going to happen? Where will there be more in depth coverage of the Yankees?

    At least we’ll get in depth coverage of the Red Sox.

    Oh wait, Pete will roll over when Theo Epstein lies to him about injury news, etc. He’ll say “Oh Theo, my Theo, what can I do to help the Sawx?”

  217. Brandon September 17th, 2009 at 7:45 pm

    Pete-

    I rarely post, but read every day. Im really going to miss all your updates and your articles in the paper. Your an amazing beat writer and an amazing blogger. You have leg this blog to stardom in the blogosphere. This is very sad. I mean, I am about to cry, haha. Best of luck in Boston.

  218. Erin September 17th, 2009 at 7:45 pm

    I have never posted before, but read the blog constantly. I am very disappointed to hear this news, but it’s certainly understandable. Best of luck to you in Boston.

    Whoever your replacement is has some big shoes to fill.

  219. Yogis September 17th, 2009 at 7:45 pm

    Best of luck. Thanks for all you have done.

  220. Sarah September 17th, 2009 at 7:46 pm

    Pete, please don’t go.. you mean alot to me.. you are breaking my heart leaving us for the red sox.. your the best thing we got going.

  221. RMEL September 17th, 2009 at 7:46 pm

    Have fun at next years writers softball game….hope the NY beat writers don’t throw at you..haha….what a great blog you started…

    Peter Abraham was here and so it goes……

  222. amosmoses September 17th, 2009 at 7:47 pm

    Haven’t commented that often over the years but I have been checking out the site nearly everyday for the last 2 or so years. Great site, was always my first place for Yankee Info…has pretty much replaced Yankees.com for me. Will miss my Yankee news with a touch of humor though.

    Good Luck with the Boston gig though, I get why your doing it, and if I was in your shoes I might have done the same.

  223. Stevie September 17th, 2009 at 7:47 pm

    Another cheap homer in the band box.

  224. Kevin September 17th, 2009 at 7:47 pm

    Pete – I am a Yankee fan in Boston, this is my first post ever, although I’ve been reading the blog daily for 2+ years. I am psyched to have you in Boston, and I think you’ll be a huge hit. Good move, and congrats.

  225. JD September 17th, 2009 at 7:48 pm

    Pete,

    For the third time this decade Boston has won, allthough it’s very painfull news as this has become part of my ritual daily, I cannot be more happy that good things are happening to you.

    Good Luck & hope to see you back in NY soon.

  226. trisha - OPPC lifetime member who is missing the worry gene September 17th, 2009 at 7:48 pm

    FWIW, the Angels just took the lead.

    The umps said it’s early, not to worry Sux fans.

  227. Raf September 17th, 2009 at 7:48 pm

    A terrible loss for Yankees fans, good luck Pete.

  228. A-regular September 17th, 2009 at 7:48 pm

    Damn, i really feel like crying. i was always reading your game comments before i went to sleep.

  229. Keanu Reeves September 17th, 2009 at 7:49 pm

    Pete this was my first year reading the blog but I, along with everybody else, loved it and visited 5, 6, or 20 times a day. The opportunity with which you’ve been presented certainly warrants the move and I don’t think anyone can honestly blame you one bit (especially with the climate of newspaper industry). So thanks for the laughs, random thoughts and, above all, insightful and enlightening behind the scenes reporting that I will surely miss.

    Mike Axisa does an excellent job over at River Avenue Blues if LoHud doesn’t have a list of candidates already.

  230. inpinstripes September 17th, 2009 at 7:49 pm

    Wow, Pete. I´m speechless (wordless?). It feels like a punch to the gut. I can only wish you the best, but why Bahstahn? Why in the middle of a pennant race? It feels strange, for sure.

  231. JimmyCanuck September 17th, 2009 at 7:49 pm

    Really, could this not wait until the off season? My God, the playoffs are almost upon us.

    And I hate to be the one to do this to you Pete, but I’m filing a tampering charge. Yeah, that’s right, you ain’t going anywhere until the investigation is completed. This could get ugly.

  232. Derek September 17th, 2009 at 7:49 pm

    Regardless of what team you will be writing for next season, Abe, you have been a pleasure to follow for the last couple of years.

    Keep up the good work, even if it is for a team like the Sux.

    Good luck. Family is the most important thing, and our readers have no right to be selfish.

    Godspeed.

  233. RCK September 17th, 2009 at 7:50 pm

    Congratulations, Pete. That is a really well-deserved career advancement for you.

    For myself, I can’t imagine the playoffs without your up to the minute coverage, the extra little anecdotes you bring us from inside the clubhouse, the in-game commentary. As a fan who can never get enough news about the Yankees, I’m kind of devastated.

    And yes, the fact that you’re going to Boston does make this all the harder to take, only because I’m envious that now their fans will be getting the amazing coverage that you’ve given us.

    Thank you and good luck.

  234. kimmiebruce September 17th, 2009 at 7:50 pm

    Really sad to see you go, but I’m happy for you. I wish you all the best in this new opportunity. You’ve built more than a blog–you’ve built a community, and it just won’t be the same without you.

    “Some day we’ll look back on this, and it will all seem funny….”

  235. Adam September 17th, 2009 at 7:50 pm

    Pete,

    I rely on your blog for a lot of my yankee info and while it will be very, very sad for me to see you go, I just want to say I REALLY appreciate all the hard work you have put it for everyone who reads this blog. I wish you ALL the best and I know that you will do a great job at the globe. The VERY best of luck.

    A loyal reader,

    Adam

  236. Mark September 17th, 2009 at 7:51 pm

    WHAT?????????????????????????????????

  237. Eric September 17th, 2009 at 7:51 pm

    I’m disgusted. Tough to feel happy for someone who is going to work for the Red Sox. Is Pete even a Yankee fan to begin with? We know about his loyalty to the Spygate.

  238. Leah September 17th, 2009 at 7:52 pm

    Pete,
    I’m only a freshmen in college but I’ve followed your blog for a good year and a half now. When it came to Yankees’ news, I came here first. You will be missed dearly by all, but I wish you the best of luck in Boston. You clearly deserve the promotion.

    Any chance Chad Jennings could replace you? He deserves a promotion as well.

    Leah :)

  239. Dan September 17th, 2009 at 7:52 pm

    Pete, like so many others, I am one of the “silent majority” who reads your blog regularly, but doesn’t post comments and get into the fray. But I want to tell you that your efforts have been greatly appreciated and enjoyed. I’ll miss reading your intelligent, often funny commentary and getting your insight. I wish you all the best with the Globe!

  240. Tom B September 17th, 2009 at 7:52 pm

    this really blows… i hope you find someone to pick up the reigns before you leave because the collection of information on this blog is too good to let die.

  241. Smacketh Downeth September 17th, 2009 at 7:52 pm

    I like the idea of Pete coming back to do a guest post next year. Thanks, Betsy – good one!

    Meanwhile, I have always avoided Soxblogs, but I guess I am game to join the rest of you-all, becoming Yankee trolls at the Globe :-D

  242. Sarah September 17th, 2009 at 7:52 pm

    I dont understand this, I am seriously crying right now. I like so many of you check this blog at least 5 times a day because pete is SOOO GOOD.

    Pete, please re-consider. I think you’re making a mistake. Your an older guy.. isn’t more important to be happy in this stage of your life? we need you just like you need us… i just think your ruining a good thing.

  243. JoeyA September 17th, 2009 at 7:53 pm

    Pete your blog is a tremendous part of my Yankee life and where I go for most, if not all, of my Yankee news. Hope all stays well in Boston for you as it did here. I will miss your reporting.

  244. Tom B September 17th, 2009 at 7:53 pm

    eric it’s been pretty obvious this whole time that pete is not a “yankee fan”.

  245. Joel September 17th, 2009 at 7:53 pm

    I bet you’ll miss classy Mike, huh? Good luck Pete. Not sure what we’ll do without you.

  246. Scotty B September 17th, 2009 at 7:54 pm

    Pete

    This news is devastating. I can’t believe it. I think I spend more time checking and reading this blog than actually watching the games. I feel a little bit like the season ended early today. I wish there were a game tonight to help remind me that this wonderful season will continue. Sorry if this melodramatic, but the Yankee webiverse won’t be the same without you, Pete.

    But, on the bright side, you’ve given me a new reason to hate Bosox fans!

  247. TampaGatorYankee September 17th, 2009 at 7:54 pm

    If you’re crying over a blog, you may want to evaluate your life.

  248. YankeeJosh September 17th, 2009 at 7:55 pm

    Best of luck Pete. It’s depressing because you were and are the gold standard for Yankees news.

    Question- Do you keep your MVP vote for 2009 or not since you won’t be a New York beat writer come October.

  249. Joey September 17th, 2009 at 7:55 pm

    Non-story of the day

  250. Gordon September 17th, 2009 at 7:56 pm

    So much for me pretending to work while I am at work. The playoffs won’t be the same this year. Good luck Pete!

  251. Smacketh Downeth September 17th, 2009 at 7:56 pm

    Sairy, no need to cry… Mike or Chad or Sam; all good guys and run a good blog too [you'll see!].

    And, Pete’s not an older guy; he’s still a pup! :-)

  252. Marc September 17th, 2009 at 7:56 pm

    Really wish you coulda finished off the season. If we lose it’ll be known as the curse of Pete Abe!

  253. zeeko September 17th, 2009 at 7:56 pm

    2+ year reader. Never posted. This blog was on my trio of sites I check every morning. One work, espn, and this. At first I thought it was a prank, but as I read on I realized it was the end of an era. All the best to you. You’re the best beat writer the yankees have had since buster olney. Hopefully the yanks can make the end of your last season special. Boston sucks. You’re cool. I’m out.

  254. AnjaK-J September 17th, 2009 at 7:57 pm

    Good luck with your new gig Pete.

  255. Vicki September 17th, 2009 at 7:57 pm

    NOOOOO!!! This is the best Yankee blog out there, and it has become the only one I read now! No one covers the Yanks like you do….

  256. Mehdi in SF September 17th, 2009 at 7:58 pm

    Good luck Pete. I’m happy for you that you are getting to be closer to your family and I hope that enjoy the Globe. Having said that, I hope you understand while you are moving up in the sense that the Globe is a bigger paper than LoHud, you are moving downwards as far as Baseball teams go. It’s like dating Angelina Jolie and then having to date Kim Kardashian. Don’t get me wrong, Kim is hot but she’s a whore. That’s what this is, you’re leaving us for a whore.

  257. Swiaher Sweet September 17th, 2009 at 7:58 pm

    Don’t let the door hit you in the big fat pancake ass you biased stupid prick!

  258. Ann Marie September 17th, 2009 at 7:59 pm

    Wishing you the best — The Boston folks don’t realize how lucky they truely are. Perhaps you will possibly make Boston appear more interesting? Although they have no one like our A-Rod, so it may be hard to do.

    Best Wishes!

  259. Keith September 17th, 2009 at 7:59 pm

    Well deserved, though you’ll be missed. Congratulations on your new gig.

  260. Mike R September 17th, 2009 at 7:59 pm

    So you mean we’re not going to have a Sox fan writing a blog about the Yankees anymore? Awesome!

    Hopefully the new guy is actually a fan of the team we all love so much.

  261. GreenBeret7 September 17th, 2009 at 7:59 pm

    Scranton has taken a 1-0 lead in game three of the FSL championship. Jackson is 0-1 with a strikeout, a walk and a stolen base. Miranda hit a triple and scored on sac fly by Ransom. Ivan Nova has a 3 inning no-hit shutout going with 1 walk and 3 strikeouts.

    Update: after Jackson and miranda walked, Ransom added an RBI single. 2-0 botton of the third inning.

  262. Thomas September 17th, 2009 at 8:00 pm

    Red Sox?!? Wow….

    Can’t fault you for taking a pay raise & moving up though but damn.

    You provided lots of great Yankees news as well, too bad to see you go.

  263. Mehdi in SF September 17th, 2009 at 8:00 pm

    I think he meant to write Swisher.

  264. Bunny September 17th, 2009 at 8:00 pm

    Pete finally realized his mistake and is coming over to the GOOD side. Go Sox!
    PS – It was so nice on here for a week without Trish.

  265. Billy September 17th, 2009 at 8:00 pm

    good luck Pete!

  266. Baja September 17th, 2009 at 8:00 pm

    Nooooo! Best coverage of the Yanks, by far, comes from this blog. Intelligent, insightful and funny. Thanks for a job well done Pete.

    I feel ya with the parents though. I’ll let my Boston friends know what a gem they’re getting.

    Godspeed. Hope you have plenty of time off in October for as long as you’re covering Boston!

  267. RMEL September 17th, 2009 at 8:01 pm

    Wonder what is going to happen to Amalie Benjamin of the Globe, now thats Pete is the beat writer….Maybe they will have 2 beat writers for the Globe

  268. Will Moller September 17th, 2009 at 8:01 pm

    Gives all of us smalltimers a chance to fill the void. Good luck, Pete.

    Wish you weren’t leaving just as the playoffs start, though. FTH?

  269. Yankee Fan in VA September 17th, 2009 at 8:01 pm

    Wow.

    I’ll be very sorry to see you go, Pete. You do a great blog. But I totally understand. How can you pass up what I perceive as an upward career move, *plus* a chance to move closer to home? I’d totally jump at that. (Though for me, north Jersey or eastern PA would be home.)

    I wish you all the best.

  270. Arno September 17th, 2009 at 8:02 pm

    Wow… that’s a bombshell!

    Sad to see you go. I have loved reading this blog for this baseball season. I was hooked at my very first read. This is the best Yankees blog on the web and it’s all on you.

    Good luck to you, give ‘em hell up there in Boston!

  271. T15D23 September 17th, 2009 at 8:02 pm

    At least 6 times a day. Via web and iphone. In the am, for the latest stories. A few times before for the lineup and absolutely during game time and after. Always felt like I was hanging with a buddy watching the game and for that you did a fantastic job.

    Make the most of your new opportunity and hopefully you received a guaranteed vested contract because the Globe isn’t exactly sitting on a financial rock. And your future employer is unknown (what is it down to 2 bidders now?).

    So be well, enjoy your new gig and thanks from a guy who has been reading you from Brooklyn to Vegas to LA.

    Take care.

  272. CK in LA September 17th, 2009 at 8:02 pm

    Wow … I can’t believe you won’t be around for the end of the season let alone the Playoffs. I kind of thought something was up when you didn’t mention West Coast travel plans but never imagined this.

    Best of luck to you and your family …. The Globe is very lucky to get you. Hopefully, Boston fans appreciate you as much as we do.

    Who’s gonna make me laugh now?

    [not to sound morbid but Sam did a great job during your furlough .... will he be around to help us in our time of loss]

  273. Will Moller September 17th, 2009 at 8:03 pm

    The Yankees stole Mark Teixeira from the Red Sox. They went after Pete Abraham instead. You should be honored, Pete!

  274. Paddy September 17th, 2009 at 8:03 pm

    Abe,

    I can respect your decision to put family first, especially when it’s a rung in the ladder.

    One of y brothers is a Red Sox fan and I hear about it every week. He is 1 Sox fan in a family of 9 & now all growed up with 2 Sox fans of his own and 1 Yank.

    He says he became a Sox fan while playing minor league ball (tee) in Virginia (this is all true) and his team pulled off a triple play. They were the named for the Red Sox.

    My dad (who pitched for the Navy, once against Joltin Joe) likes to remind him who it was that taught him how to play to begin with…A Yankee! LOL true,

    I played for the Nats at that time (1970s) and quit. It was way too boring. My older brothers were All-Stars and it wasn’t even competitive as our ol country pick up game.

    And I never stopped liking the Yanks. Those are family matters.

    Good luck brother. Just don’t generate any stories for the sake of telling a generated story.

    Keep it real,
    All the Best,

    Paddy

  275. andrew33 September 17th, 2009 at 8:03 pm

    Wow, this truly is a punch to the gut. A Yankee fan since 1980 and over the past 2 years I check this site first thing in the AM and often many times throughout the day. This is the place I’ve gotten friends to go to for all their Yankees and baseball updates. Best of luck to you

  276. jw September 17th, 2009 at 8:04 pm

    Congratulations on an amazing career opportunity (and, from the sounds of it, family opportunity too).

    Your work here has been remarkable. Like many others, your blog is one of my first web visits each day, 365 days of the year. I can’t tell you how many games I’ve followed by refreshing this page from my desk here at work. Thank you, and good luck.

  277. mike eff September 17th, 2009 at 8:04 pm

    Pete- first of all many congratulations and I wish you all the luck in the world. The folks in Boston will be in for a real treat and surprise when they see the high level and depth of coverage they will be getting. That being said as someone who has basically lived, though mostly as a lurker, here since 2006 this comes as a shock and a real blow. I hope you know how much your comprehensive coverage has meant to almost all of us here. You have singlehandedly made this the one stop shopping place for all yankee news. I firmly believe that your blog has not only impacted but changed the entire landscape of how a baseball team is covered. many kudos. we will miss you more than you know and i’m sure I speak for the majority of fans who spend hours of their day here.
    mike

  278. David Berger September 17th, 2009 at 8:04 pm

    Dear Mr. Abraham,

    I’m so terribly sorry to hear about this news, but I know that I would make the same decision given the circumstances.

    This blog filled a void in my Yankees-following life: an internet-based source for relatively substantiated rumors, trades, signings, and everything else you could possibly imagine. Your in-game coverage has saved me many many times as I sit in class on my computer during day games. You write eloquently and make pragmatic conclusions to situations that don’t necessarily warrant it. You helped reassure us that every Yankee loss was not a reason to jump off the GWB. Most of all, though, you brought reality and common sense to a field where, all too often, sports journalists are only interested in inducing hysteria while advancing their own names.

    This is the first Yankees blog I have religiously checked; with your departure, though, I also have a great fear that it will also be the only Yankee blog I ever check.

    Write a book about your time covering the greatest franchise in sports! I’ll be the first person in line at the bookstore.

  279. Yankeeboy98 September 17th, 2009 at 8:04 pm

    Pete,

    Thanks so much for the job you did here on the Hud. I wasn’t an avid commenter, but I was an avid reader, and I absolutely fell in love with the blog.

    Many writers, specifically you, have inspired me to become a writer. I’m the best writer in my grade and I write a lot for my school newspaper. And one day I hope to fill your shoes and become the next writer of the LoHud Yankees Blog.

    Back in April or so I sent you an email telling you about my blog and what not. And you replied, and I’d like to give a big thanks for that.

    Finally, good luck in Boston Pete, you’ll defenitely be missed.

    Yankeeboy98

  280. Yanks26 September 17th, 2009 at 8:05 pm

    Wow, I feel like The Yanks just traded a young up and coming star for an aginig star. This is Jay Buhner for Ken Phelps all over again. I’m really sorry to see you go, Pete. Nobody will replace you. Good luck in Boston. I always thought you’d go to another NY paper.

  281. Greg Cohen September 17th, 2009 at 8:05 pm

    Pete, Congrats and good luck with the move.

    Your dedicated coverage will be missed by us all.

  282. kimoinsd September 17th, 2009 at 8:05 pm

    Do your thing Pete!

  283. DGiant September 17th, 2009 at 8:05 pm

    Sorry to see you go and wish you well in your next endeavor.

    As for the rest – what mike eff just said……

    Uncle Ellsworth (be nice, until it’s not time to be nice) September 17th, 2009 at 7:04 pm

    I hope the Lohud chooses wisely.

    ***********

    Agreed, they will have HUGE shoes to fill.

  285. King Tom September 17th, 2009 at 8:06 pm

    Pete:
    I think this is my first time commenting, but I’ve been an everyday reader since month one. It’s a huge loss for the Yankees community. You’ve done great work for us. I wish you well in the future, but not the team you’ll be covering.
    Thanks for all you’ve done.

  286. KG86 September 17th, 2009 at 8:06 pm

    Pete, I’m a long time reader but I rarely post if at all. I just want to say thanks for everything! You did such an awesome job covering the Yanks I don’t think anyone can truly replace you from lohud. Thanks again!

  287. Ziny September 17th, 2009 at 8:07 pm

    Pete,
    I do not post often, but I do read this blog regularly, as if it was the bible… You are a great asset in these online Yankee community is loosing and a huge gain for the Boston fans. Wow. I’m truly sadden to hear this news, but I wish you the best.

    I’m pretty sure after you read what THOSE fans write you’ll be begging to come back.. nah, just kidding.

    Best of luck Pete! :0)

  288. Alex September 17th, 2009 at 8:07 pm

    Congratulations and best of luck at the Globe. You have been the finest Yankees writer and a real leader when it comes to blogging and up to the minute coverage.

    I’m just sorry I can’t follow you over to the other side…

  289. jake [THANKS FOR bringing back shelley] September 17th, 2009 at 8:07 pm

    Yes, a traitor.
    I can’t believe this…and on top of that, you say you’re not really a fan! This is kind of disgusting in my opinion.

  290. MT. September 17th, 2009 at 8:07 pm

    Oh poop.

    Well I wish you well… I will wear the Yankee hat you gave me with pride…we all think the world of you, Pete Abe…you will be missed.

  291. Scott V September 17th, 2009 at 8:08 pm

    This is the shittiest news I have heard all day. I understand you wanting to get closer to family and going to a bigger company (probably more $$$ too).

    But the Red Sox? Damn Pete, you might as well have just made out with my wife and then kicked me in the groins as you shot my dog.

  292. jennifer September 17th, 2009 at 8:08 pm

    So you mean I now have to work at work? GULP. ;-)

  293. Paddy September 17th, 2009 at 8:08 pm

    PS–we are from NY and were only in Virginia for a short while… How’d he become a Sox fan after we left? The Sox had a good network in the 80s that reached all the way to CNY. Now its even better.

    Still not as good as the Yanks tho.

    ;)

  294. Jim September 17th, 2009 at 8:08 pm

    Good luck, Pete.

  295. Mike in WPB September 17th, 2009 at 8:08 pm

    Booooooo. ;-)

    Good luck, newspapers are a dying breed.

  296. Christina- Pictures of the Girardi and A-Rod ejection + Leiter's Sock September 17th, 2009 at 8:08 pm

    Good luck with your endeavors, Pete. Family comes first, as it rightly should. You have worked for this and have reached your dream. Cue in Bruce.

  297. Rich September 17th, 2009 at 8:09 pm

    NO PETE NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Is this some sort of payback for Ruth?

  298. bronxinbeantown September 17th, 2009 at 8:09 pm

    Pete, you will be missed. This is by far the best Yankees blog I’ve ever read. Best of the best to you.

  299. MT. September 17th, 2009 at 8:10 pm

    My first attempt ended up in the spam filter so I’ll try again… I think the world of you, Pete Abe and I wish you nothing but the best. Thanks for everything… especially the hat you gave me…continued success.

  300. Bronx Born September 17th, 2009 at 8:10 pm

    Wishing you all the best Pete. You have done a heck of a job here and you will be missed.

  301. Stevie September 17th, 2009 at 8:10 pm

    Did you guys just hear Jerry Remy say “there are times when umpires are intimated by the [fenway] crowd.”

    Remy is the president of Red Sox nation, and even he admits what all yankee fans have been saying for years. Will the ‘roid sox loving media dismiss Remy as well?

  302. Bill Porter September 17th, 2009 at 8:10 pm

    Pete, You will be missed here. I’ll now read a B’ Globe Sawx Blog; I never thought I’d say that. Hell I never thought I’d say I root for any team called the Sawx until my son was drafted by them for this fall Little League season.

    You’re great at what you do and have been a true gentleman here. I hope you find all the happiness and good things that life has to offer in your new adventure. I won’t be commenting but I’ll sure be watching. You take care of your self.

  303. yankees120 September 17th, 2009 at 8:11 pm

    Dear Pete,
    I have never posted on this site before, but have read it about 10 times per day for the last 2-3 years and constantly check it during games for the always insightful updates. I am younger than most of your other readers, but still appreciate all that you have done with this blog. Although i disagree with all the A-Rod hate, you have done a phenomonal job with reporting yankee news on a blog that is second to none. Good luck @ The Globe and I look forward to reading your posts over there, even if they’re about the Sox.

  304. SoCalYankeeFan September 17th, 2009 at 8:11 pm

    Sorry to see you go Peter! But you’ve done a great job here and deserve the bigger, better position in these tough times for newspaper journalists. Enjoy your time with your family and I know you’ll do a great job covering the Red Sux…LOL!

    I moved from my roots in upstate (Woodstock) NY in the mid 1990′s to SoCal. Taking part in your blog the last few years (along with my MLB subscription) has done more to keep me connected with my Yankees than any other venue.

    I attended my first Yankee game in 1958 with my father. We attended a weekend series every summer for many years, staying at the old Hotel Manhattan, and eating at the automat in midtown, then taking the cane back seat subway up to the Stadium. You and the rest of the regulars on the blog have really connected that time for me even though I am many years and 3000 miles removed.

    Best wishes on your new gig. The Red Sux gain is the Yankees loss.

  305. jburg September 17th, 2009 at 8:12 pm

    Congrats and good luck on th new job, I’ve enjoyed you blog and column ever since I found your blog and it even drove me to actually buy a copy of th journal news every Sat & Sun.

    Teach those Mass-holes some class.

  306. countryclub September 17th, 2009 at 8:12 pm

    Pete, i was hoping you’d be moving over to the espnNY page that’s starting in 2010. oh well, good luck in boston. Thanks for the hard work.

    For those interested, I would check out riveraveblues.com if you’re looking for a new Yankees blog.

  307. Casual September 17th, 2009 at 8:12 pm

    Dude?! Say it aint so. What will I do????

  308. li September 17th, 2009 at 8:12 pm

    Best wishes, Pete.

  309. Jon in CT September 17th, 2009 at 8:12 pm

    Best of luck, Pete. I’ll miss your blog.

  310. ThePocketgeek September 17th, 2009 at 8:13 pm

    Damn. This blog was the only reason I have a freakin twitter account! Pete, it’s been fun and I will definitely miss your work. Take of yourself and congrats on the career boost. I’m sincerely happy for you and your family.

    The fans in Boston have just gotten themselves an upgrade. Da bums….

  311. Steve September 17th, 2009 at 8:13 pm

    Hey Peter,

    Ive never posted before but read your blog daily. Congrats on the promotion. The Globe, even though its in Boston, is a great paper, and they are lucky to have you.

    Thank you for providing such a great place to read all things
    Yankees and baseball.

    Good luck in Boston, I’m sure they will appreciate the work you do there just as much as we did here.

    -Steve

  312. dontfirecash September 17th, 2009 at 8:13 pm

    Wow! This is like when I went out with this chick for a while, only to later find out that she liked the Red Sox.

  313. Joey's Poodle September 17th, 2009 at 8:13 pm

    High fives, Pete. You worked hard and smart to move up and your professional advancement is well deserved. You found a way to stand out in a very precarious field, and I wish you the best in continuing to do so.

  314. Stevie September 17th, 2009 at 8:14 pm

    another cheap homer at the band box.

  315. Vito September 17th, 2009 at 8:14 pm

    I am stunned – no idea where I will go now to get Yankee news. I understand though, you got to do what is best for you and your family. Good luck Pete!

  316. Yazman (aka David) September 17th, 2009 at 8:15 pm

    “Is this some sort of payback for Ruth?”

    Ruth carried baseball into a new era, and frankly, Peter you’ve done the same for baseball journalism.

    Thank you for your FANTASTIC, edge-cutting work here. Thanks for your generosity with my family when we met in Scranton, and your generosity when asked to post for a great cause. On the blog, in person, and in giving, you’ve shown class, humility, hard work and generosity at every turn.

    Certainly our loss — but CONGRATULATIONS! You deserve it.

    Now who’s ready to lobby the NYTimes to “Bring back Pete!”?

  317. Jonathan September 17th, 2009 at 8:15 pm

    Pete,

    It will be sad to see you go, but everyone knows you are a Red Sox fan because you are a Pats fan. You did great work here. I will mostly likely stop following this blog just like i stopped following the rangers blog when Sam Weinman left. Apparently the Journal News is not committed to good reporters. You are a very good reporter hope to see you back covering the yankees some day. You will be missed.

  318. Greg Molyneux September 17th, 2009 at 8:15 pm

    Wow Pete this is quite a shock, but a significant career move that is very well deserved. I am going to miss this place, no one covers the Yankees like you do. Over the past few years you have created a unique angle that added to the experience of being a 21st Century Yankee fan.

    As much as it sucks for us, the Boston fan base is getting a tremendous asset and their Red Sox coverage while improve greatly because of it.

    The LoHud Yankee blog should just be retired when you move on since no one will do it quite like you Pete.

    Best of luck.

  319. seb September 17th, 2009 at 8:15 pm

    Pete,

    I don’t comment much, but I’m on the blog all day. Best of Luck. I might have to do some work now. You will be missed by many. Thanks for all of your hard work.

  320. The Sports Show Live September 17th, 2009 at 8:16 pm

    Maybe now he can have little Pete’s! Good luck.

  321. J-Boogie September 17th, 2009 at 8:17 pm

    What can I say that hasn’t been said already? Not much. Thanks for all of your hard work and efforts. I really appreciate the constant updating. Like everyone else, this is where I went for my Yankee news. You done good.

    Good luck in Boston Pete-ah! All the best.

  322. Irabu's Son September 17th, 2009 at 8:17 pm

    Pete,

    How’s it feel to have actual “fans”? I can speak for all of us when I say this stinks. It could be the LA Times, Washington Post, Kansas City Star.. whatever… but covering the Red Sox?

  323. Doc September 17th, 2009 at 8:17 pm

    This is terrible news. What are we to do without Pete Abraham? Though I don’t post very much, I’m on this site several times a day. In fact, whenever games are in progress and I can’t watch (I’m on the west coast without YES), I always stop here first to check Pete’s updates and see how the game has unfolded, rather than just looking at the score on MLB or ESPN. And the stats Pete provided for every game thread helped me become a more knowledgeable fan.

    Pete, good luck in your new venture. I sure hope you come back home to the Yankees in the future. You will be sorely missed.

  324. Luds September 17th, 2009 at 8:17 pm

    Traitor! Have a good time Pete, the decision was clear, you made the right choice for your situation and you clearly deserve it. I can only hope to see you back covering the Yankees in a few years.

  325. Tom from Worcester, MA September 17th, 2009 at 8:18 pm

    Pete it is a tough day for all of us here. Like many others have said so eloquently, you will be sorely missed. I check this blog at least 5-10 times per day to find out everything I can about the Yanks.

    You have been a great resource for me and I feel like I am losing a friend. As a native of Norwich myself and a UConn Fan, I actually remember you writing for the Bulletin and just want to say that the Globe just got a serious upgrade!

    Like any free agent, I am very happy for you that this opportunity has come to you and there is no doubt that you have to take it – but it doesn’t mean we have to like it. I look forward to hearing you on WEEI and will miss your coverage of my boys of summer.

    Good luck to you!

  326. Drive 4-5 September 17th, 2009 at 8:18 pm

    Pete,

    Best of luck. You’ve changed the landscape of Yankee baseball coverage and you should be proud of it. The Boston Red Sox and their fans don’t desrve what they are about to get. It’s a huge loss for all of us Yankee fans. You will be missed.

  327. Tom Peyer (Superfrankenstein) September 17th, 2009 at 8:18 pm

    Wow. Congratulations. Thank you for all the amazing work, Pete. You’ll be missed around here.

  328. Stevie September 17th, 2009 at 8:19 pm

    another cheap homer at the band box. in any other stadium, that’s an out.

  329. Elyse September 17th, 2009 at 8:20 pm

    A total punch to the gut! I wish you all the best and will make sure my red sox friends (yes, I have quite a few having gone to school in MA) start following you ASAP. And when I want the truth about our rivals up north, I’ll read too. best of luck and I hope someone picks up your slack! and fast!

  330. Jay September 17th, 2009 at 8:20 pm

    Pete,

    I’ve been reading everyday for years and have never posted a comment. Today, however, I feel obligated to just to say thank you. Thanks for your incredible blog and attention to detail. I wish you and your family the best.

  331. Tony in Albany September 17th, 2009 at 8:22 pm

    I can’t believe how genuinely upset I am right now…for a 22 year old dude I am perilously close to shedding a tear over this news. I’m simply devastated…I checked the blog probably 15-20 times a day and it as my primary source for Yankee news. It was always a bright spot in my day when I could read an interesting insight on the team that I knew I wouldn’t find anywhere else. And now all of the sudden, just before we go on our march to the world series I’m losing my favorite website? I’m speechless..I suppose all I can say is thank you, thank you Pete for giving all of us outstanding coverage of the team for all this time. I understand the decision altho I don’t support it…I also can’t believe you’ll be covering boston, it’s just so wierd! Well it’s a sad day for all us Yankee fans, I can’t tell you how much you’ll be missed.

  332. Rock Smoother September 17th, 2009 at 8:22 pm

    Pete,

    When a few hours without internet have gone by I get excited knowing I can flick my computer on and find something new on the lohud blog. It’s not the news you give it’s the way you give it. You have a fantastic sense of humor and it shines through in every single post you write.

    This blog may live on in web address but when you leave it leaves. Your personality is what makes Yankee fans drawn to you.

    You are hilarious and fair and value the same things Yankee fans do.

    I can honestly say…a shooting pain of sadness penetrated my body when I read this post.

    I hope you are staying through the postseason.

    You are as much a part of my Yankee experience as anyone or anything.

    It won’t be quite the same without you.

    - Mark

  333. Irabu's Son September 17th, 2009 at 8:22 pm

    I thought the Globe was broke?

  334. Mike C September 17th, 2009 at 8:23 pm

    Scranton will take a big hit but Chad Jennings needs to fill your shoes.

  335. jenna September 17th, 2009 at 8:24 pm

    I don’t post at all really, but read the blog too many times a day to mention. You’ve been great to us Pete, and we wish you the best, but you will be truly missed.

  336. Michael R. September 17th, 2009 at 8:24 pm

    Pete-
    I have been reading this blog for a while, but have only posted once or twice. This is one of the Yankee blogs I read regularly and it is by far the best. The work and creativity you put into this blog is unbelievable. I will miss reading you and hope they can get someone who can do at least half the job you have. This blog is great and you are a class act. I will miss it and will try read you over at the Globe.
    Best of luck in Boston.

  337. Tim September 17th, 2009 at 8:25 pm

    I have enjoyed your blog for years. I’ll still read you on boston.com.

    Say hi to the CHB.

  338. Benny Blanco September 17th, 2009 at 8:25 pm

    Damn Pete, first the fat boys break up and now this. I just want to wish the best of luck bc you deserve it. Even though I joined this blog a little over a year ago, I’ve enjoyed your coverage of the yankees immensly.

  339. TB September 17th, 2009 at 8:25 pm

    HA! You tried to brat each other’s brains in in the paper?? You never did Pete. Never, ever broke a story. Good luck when you are actually at a place where they expect you to break news.HA.

  340. Robert September 17th, 2009 at 8:26 pm

    Pete – although I haven’t commented more than a handful of times, I’ve been reading your blog since the beginning. Every day, I forward your posts along to my dad. For some reason he is incapable of visiting your blog directly. We’ll both miss your blog greatly as it is without a doubt the best available. Best of luck at the Globe! Although I hate the Red Sox more than anything, I’ll be inclined to check in from time to time to see how you’re doing (and make sure the Sox are in bad shape).

    Regards,
    Robert

  341. Jim September 17th, 2009 at 8:26 pm

    Good Luck Pete!! Thanks for the many hours of distraction at work! Im sure my boss will appreciate you leaving so I can get more work done. Hopefully someone will buy the globe from the times soon.

  342. MurphsTurf September 17th, 2009 at 8:26 pm

    Pete,

    I’ve been reading for a long time, but this is the first time I’ve ever written. I suspect there are a lot of readers like myself. Just wanted to wish you a hearty congratulations. I, too, will miss the blog coverage — it has really enhanced my ability to follow the Yankees. Good luck to you in Boston.

  343. Scorpio September 17th, 2009 at 8:27 pm

    Good luck, Pete.

    Wow, covering the Red Sox? Hmm, I hope you like “Sweet Caroline.”

  344. Ant928 September 17th, 2009 at 8:27 pm

    Pete:

    As a displaced NYY fan this b,og was my lifeline. Congrats on the job…you deserve all of it and more. Hopefully your replacement keeps this going. I can say this…if you start a Sox blog it’ll CERTAINLY be better than 38 Pitches!

  345. kjdjr September 17th, 2009 at 8:27 pm

    i think ive only posted on this site once or twice. but im on this site a good 5-6 times a day. you do a great job. im from LI but i got to school up here in boston. the boston globe is a big deal up here. its a great paper. and to be honest i never even heard of the lohud news until this blog. i have still never actually seen a physical copy of one. you are 100% making the right move going from the lohud news to the boston globe. its kinda like going from a 50 year old madonna to kate hudson. once you come back to work for the post or the daily news, then you would have finally moved to minka kelly. but anyway every person in your spot would do the same exact thing 10 times outta 10. it does suck bc you do an excellent job on here.hopefully your successor does a reasonable job and works almost as hard as you. im gonna miss reading your work for the yanks. congratualtions and good luck.

  346. Mark September 17th, 2009 at 8:27 pm

    All good wishes, best of luck — and thanks so much for your great blog re Yankees. You’re leaving some real big shoes to fill. The Bosox fans are lucky they’re getting you.

    Thank you Pete

  347. Dennis from the Bronx September 17th, 2009 at 8:27 pm

    Pete, you are the very best at what you do. Our loss is Boston’s gain. You made the right decision. You done good. The Boston Globe! Wow. But I’m really going to miss reading your Yankee coverage.

  348. Mr. Bums September 17th, 2009 at 8:28 pm

    Congrats Pete! It sounds like a great opportunity, good luck! Thanks a lot for writing something that became a big part of my day and yankee life.

  349. ryan September 17th, 2009 at 8:28 pm

    Sorry to see you leave Pete. Hopefully one day, you do come back to the Yankees.

    As for candidates, I saw a mention of Mike Axisa. He’d be my pick. He works for MLBTR right now along with running River Ave Blues, does a great job on his blog and working at MLBTR.

    Though Chad Jennings, IMO, would also be a great pick.

  350. thomas September 17th, 2009 at 8:29 pm

    I dont understand why the New York Times, New York Post, Newsday, NYDailynews didn’t hire Pete.. why would they allow the best sports beat writer in New York to leave?

  351. Joba Joba September 17th, 2009 at 8:29 pm

    Good Luck Pete, I’m sure you’ll have a great story when the Yanks sweep the sox to winn the division next year.

  352. Evan September 17th, 2009 at 8:29 pm

    Hey Pete. Thanks for all you’ve done for the Yanks and the fans especially. If we win #27 hopefully you’ll enjoy it as much as we do knowing you were such a big part of the Yankees Universe. Good luck.

  353. Stevie September 17th, 2009 at 8:30 pm

    Scorpio September 17th, 2009 at 8:27 pm

    Good luck, Pete.

    Wow, covering the Red Sox? Hmm, I hope you like “Sweet Caroline.”
    ==================================================
    will pete have complain about “sweet caroline” at the Globe the same way he complained about “God Bless America” being played at Yankee Stadium?

  354. Catjya September 17th, 2009 at 8:30 pm

    Pete I read everyday,don’t comment,and try to stay away from the petty personal put downs,lobbed at each other here,just for an opinion.

    I WISH YOU VERY BEST.

    The Yankees have stolen, many players from Beantown,turnaround is fair play.Beantown should be honored to have you.

    When Beantown plays the Yankees,drop a comment in on us.

  355. billiam September 17th, 2009 at 8:31 pm

    now i know how the sox felt when damon left. :(

  356. audiofunktion September 17th, 2009 at 8:31 pm

    You know, i’ve checked this website every day 5x a day for the past couple years. It’s horrible to see you go, but I’m happy you get an opportunity to keep doing what you love while advancing your position. Good luck! Go Yanks!

  357. Schuyler September 17th, 2009 at 8:31 pm

    Pete,
    I never thought when I started reading your blog 2 years ago that it would be that big a deal. But then I started checking it 10-15 times a day, which is 5-10 times more than I check my own email. When I started my own movie review blog 2 years ago, you responded to my questions about content and blog traffic when you really had no obligation to help me. I hate the Red Sox, but I’ll always respect you as a fair journalist who always demonstrated that his loyalties were to people and the truth, above sports team affiliations. I wish you all the best, and if there was ever anything I could ever do for you, I’d do it in a second. Your writing means a lot to a lot of people. Good luck.

    Schuyler in Carrboro, NC

  358. iYankees September 17th, 2009 at 8:32 pm

    No worries, Pete. It’s the Boston Globe and a great opportunity. You’d be crazy not to take it! Good for you.

    Thanks for the blog. I started reading your work, what, 3 or 4 years ago (when it was blue and gray, I think)? You’re a great writer and a reliable source for info. I think many a Yankee blog—my own included—began after seeing the interest this site generated.

    Thanks for everything and good luck up!

    Chris H.

  359. Russell NY September 17th, 2009 at 8:33 pm

    Don’t blame you Pete. But yea, you’re a traitor. Be gone!

  360. Jay September 17th, 2009 at 8:33 pm

    Enjoyed following the stories and games with you my brother…
    Best of luck to you up there in Beantown…

  361. Jerry Bahr September 17th, 2009 at 8:33 pm

    You are going to be greatly missed Mr. Abraham. I’ve been reading this blog 10-15 times a day for the last 3 years and have never posted. I want to thank you for the great coverage of our beloved team and can only hope your replacement can come close to your high standard of work.

    Good luck Pete and Thanks again.

  362. KF September 17th, 2009 at 8:33 pm

    Thanks, Pete. Your blog has blessed me with countless hours of entertainment.

  363. DT - OPPC member (blood type - Positive) September 17th, 2009 at 8:34 pm

    Bummed? yes.
    Shocked? no.

    The newspaper business is a tough profession these days. You gotta do what you gotta do.

    You gave this blog your heart and soul. I don’t think this blog every saw an “off-day” – and I know it was killing you to take those forced week furloughs and not be able to post.

    You answered every e-mail. You gave your off time for those fabulous video chats too.(some from sunny Florida in a dark hotel room no less!) What other beat writer let us send in questions to ask our favorite players in blog interviews?

    You’ll be missed. Boston’s gain, is New York’s loss.

    Before you go to Boston…Could I ask for just one thing?
    I know I shouldn’t, but unless I ask, I’ll always regret the chance – so here goes.

    Could you, would you, if we begged you, if we bribed you with Springsteen tickets….
    please please pretty please with Boli Boli on top – could you take Loopy Mike Lupica with you?

    (he’s tiny, he doesn’t eat much, and I bet he would fit in a small suitcase)

  364. B.E. Earl September 17th, 2009 at 8:34 pm

    Wow, what a shocker!

    Best of luck with your new job, Pete! We’ll miss you here.

  365. JT September 17th, 2009 at 8:35 pm

    Pete – best of luck. We will miss your level headed opinions.

  366. Ken September 17th, 2009 at 8:35 pm

    Man Pete,

    From the Moose Yankeeography to this….

    I feel like i just got kicked in the shin.

    We will miss you.

  367. SteveB September 17th, 2009 at 8:35 pm

    Pete will be missed, no two ways about it, but when it comes to these kind of decisions, you have to put yourself and your family’s best interests first. Best of luck always, Pete.

    Meanwhile… sniff, sniff…
    I think I smell Chad Jennings……

    Congratulations and best wishes. You will be the first Sox beat writer to make the cut into my RSS feeder.

  369. cashman needs to go September 17th, 2009 at 8:36 pm

    kim jones will be devastated…hey pete maybe now you can ask her out….

  370. LCG September 17th, 2009 at 8:38 pm

    Congratulations and best of luck at the Boston Globe. That’s a great opportunity (even if it is covering the Sox) and you deserve it.

    Once you’re gone from this blog I’ll probably be more productive at work, lol. You really gave so much to this blog, whoever follows will have some pretty big shoes to fill.

    Thank you for all of your excellent reporting and be kind to us Yankee fans when you’re in Boston!

  371. Joe B September 17th, 2009 at 8:38 pm

    Thanks Pete…

    It was great to meet you this summer in Scranton.

    I wish you all the best…

  372. Stevie September 17th, 2009 at 8:38 pm

    Just think what ya be missing – you won’t have AJ Burnett to kick around anymore.

    Seriously, Sully won’t up with anyone bashing the home team.

  373. JK September 17th, 2009 at 8:38 pm

    As a displaced New Yorker, I’ve relied on this blog for most of my Yankees coverage the past few years. I’ll really, really miss you, Pete. This is a huge loss. You’ve done a fantastic job. Best of luck at the Globe. You deserve it.

    -Jon

  374. Richard Iurilli September 17th, 2009 at 8:38 pm

    Congrats Pete! You will be missed by Yankees fans who read your blog religiously. I hope the Red Sox fans recognize that they’re getting a tremendous writer to cover their team.

    Good luck with the new gig!

  375. JohnM September 17th, 2009 at 8:39 pm

    Congratulations. What will the rest of us do without the best Yankee coverage?

    With DirtDogs, Mazz and a bunch of other columnists and bloggers the Globe probably already has the best daily baseball coverage – while its owner has cut way back on Yankee coverage. The Globe even puts more Yankee stories on the front page than the Times (especially when it comes to A-Rod and Teixiera). You are the bright spot in Yankee coverage and we will all miss you.

    There was a time when the Times would have two Yankee stories a day plus columns by Red Smith and (I’m still trying to remember the name of their other very good sports writer of that time), but not we only get one a day and infrequent blog posts. I wish we could get the Times to hire Pete.

  376. Big Sky Yankee September 17th, 2009 at 8:39 pm

    For a couple minutes, i didn’t know how to feel. I think i went through denial, anger, and now, acceptance in about five minutes. While people (idiots) would bag on pete for not having a “commitment” to the yanks and leaving to cover the red sox, but really, pete’s commitment is to his craft and he is excellent at it. I have enjoyed the last year of reading and learning how someone can be so good at what he does. As a sports reporter at a university newspaper, pete’s ascension through the ranks in such a shaky time for newspapers is an amazing achievement.

    Congratulations Pete!! It’s surprising you didn’t get picked up sooner. Have fun, enjoy life. And keep doing what you love with vigor and passion and you will never fail. Thank you for all the great times. I feel bad that boston.com has no idea how many yankee fans they’re about to get bombarded with. :)

  377. Free Mike Vick September 17th, 2009 at 8:39 pm

    say it ain’t so shoeless joe….i mean big hearted pete!!

  378. jojo September 17th, 2009 at 8:40 pm

    I’ve been a Yankee fan for over 30 years but never more so than in the last few years reading your blog several times a day almost every day.

    Thanks for all the information, insight and humor you’ve provided. Good luck in Boston. They’ll love you up there as much as we did here in NY.

  379. wallypip September 17th, 2009 at 8:40 pm

    Good luck, Pete. I will follow you to the Globe to keep track of what the bad guys are doing.

  380. cashman needs to go September 17th, 2009 at 8:41 pm

    oh and here’s another thought..

    not only do the redsox want so bad to be the yankees..but even their newspapers want to take as much yankee connected people as possible…what a truly pathetic city….

    i don’t blame you one bit pete – you gotta do whats best for you and obviously the Journal News just couldn’t match what you were offered..good luck my brother….

  381. 6 pound 8 ounce baby joba September 17th, 2009 at 8:41 pm

    Pete,

    I started reading your blog in early ’08. By September I was reading it every day (as it is clearly the best Yankees blog around). You always had great opinions and shared some great stories. You were the only blogger I could find that kept his head level in times of controversy. Hell, you were the only sportswriter in general that could keep his head level in times of controversy. You brought out the personality of the team in your writing with your anecdotes about Swish, Joba, AJ, the Big G, CC and the like. In December of ’08, after having become so fond of your writing, I founded my own blog (6 pound 8 ounce baby joba) and ever since its been one of my favorite ways to share my thoughts. This past January you let my friend Conor and I publish a post in your pinch hitter series, which was easily the highlight of my blogging career. You’ve been kind enough to even let us interview you for our site. You are a phenomenal and tremendously talented writer, and I wish you the best of luck at the Globe. Thanks for everything Pete.

    Kevin

  382. colin September 17th, 2009 at 8:41 pm

    Although this is my 1st post ive been following this blog for a couple of years now and honesty I feel betrayed, you basically left us for more money and to the red sox nonetheless. I wish you would change your mind but if not your all but dead to me.

  383. Paulo Soares September 17th, 2009 at 8:41 pm

    Hi Pete, you will be missed. I’m a Brazilian, working in China and diehard Yankees fan, and the very first thing I do in the morning is to read your blog. China is 12 hours time zone away from NY, and it is in your blog that I get first hand news of our Yankees. I will need to look for another option, because I guess I won’t be reading your bsox blog. All the best!!
    Paulo

  384. Philippe in Alexandria (VA) September 17th, 2009 at 8:41 pm

    HEY, HEY, this is better than getting free tickets to a double-header on a school day. So, now e get two great blogs (Yanks + Dead Sox). Twice the reading, and far more enjoyable than whatthe Globe now has: 4 reporters and no readers. Well done and thanks for giving all of us twice more than what we deserve.

  385. KJ September 17th, 2009 at 8:42 pm

    This hurts. Probably the equivalent to Damon to the Yanks for Sox fans a couple years ago. I checked your site several times a day and was my main yankee news source for 2 1/2 years. I hope someone can pick up the gauntlet. As a Westchester resident, I barely even noticed there is a local paper other than the Times, News & Post. We lost a good one. Doesn’t the NY Times own the Globe?

  386. joe September 17th, 2009 at 8:42 pm

    Pete I just hope this is some kind of joke man. Dude this blog is not the same without you. This seriously ruined my night noooooooo. I can’t blame you for doing this tho.

  387. jeb September 17th, 2009 at 8:42 pm

    Say it a’int so Pete, say it a’int so!

    Congrats on the move man, you’ll do great. I hope you replace Dano up there.

    Pete when you get to Birmingham, whether for a visit or to work for the Birmingham-News to start the Bama football best blog, I will take you for ribs and a tour of Rickwood Field!

  388. Shant September 17th, 2009 at 8:42 pm

    You’ve shown your true colors Pete. Good riddance.

  389. Dan September 17th, 2009 at 8:43 pm

    pete gone. 1 for bosox, 0 for yanks
    best wishes to you and family, will be keeping an eye on you over at the globe every now and then. i just love reading your posts, be it sox or yank material.

    if there’s a hall of fame for net beat writers, you’d be in!

  390. Chris September 17th, 2009 at 8:43 pm

    So this is how they’re getting us back for Ruth?

    I have that same horrible feeling I got when the Yankees lost to the Diamondbacks in 2001.

    Pete, you have no idea how much you have meant to all of use these past few years. Thanks for making our baseball experience so much richer.

    Congratulations and good luck in Boston….

    Thanks,
    Chris

  391. JRod September 17th, 2009 at 8:44 pm

    Congrats Pete! I knew it was a matter of time before you moved on to bigger and better things with the way the industry is going and your talent. Wish it wasn’t to cover the Red Sox, but I still wish you the best.

  392. Nancie September 17th, 2009 at 8:44 pm

    I’m in shock. There will be a huge void in the Yankees Universe. Not only have I enjoyed reading your blog every day, but you have taught me alot too. Good lluck to you Pete. Now my family in MA can enjoy you.

    Thanks so much for your efforts on this blog, Peter. It was truly my main source of info for following the Yankees (other than the YES Network, obviously). If you can do anything before you leave, just please make sure your current bosses don’t put the guys who made the knicks.lohudblogs.com page completely worthless in charge of this blog. Best of luck in your future endeavors. It’ll be weird clicking on this link in 15 days. Hopefully, your replacement has the same dedication that you do, though I somehow doubt he (or she) will.

  394. Adam September 17th, 2009 at 8:45 pm

    Again,

    Pete,

    I seriously don’t know what i am going to be able to do without you and this blog. This news made me very sad and i hope, one day, you will be able to come back to this blog. I don’t know if you realize how much everyone that reads this blog cares about you and how much it means to everybody for you to spend your time writing on this blog.

    From your blog post, it seems like you won’t be joining the yankees in the playoffs and this really may be bad luck for them! You gotta stay! PLEASE!

  395. Ed H. September 17th, 2009 at 8:46 pm

    Wow, Pete, I’m in shock. I’m in mourning too. Better pull out the Elizabeth Kubler-Ross tomb on the stages of grieving.

    You have done a phenomenal job here. Being a Yankees fan for almost 50 years now, I had never found a source that could come close to meeting my voracious appetite for Yankees news, information and discussion until I found your blog. Your diligence, humor and intelligent perspective have made your Yankees coverage and this blog a tremendously important part of my daily life. You will be sorely missed. I totally understand that you need to do what is right for you and your family, support you totally and will always be a supporter.

    I grew up in Rockland County, reading the Journal News daily between 1958-1971, initially learning about the Yankees through its pages. I went on a field trip to the Journal News offices in Nyack with my sixth grade class and met the editor, long before it was bought by Gannett.

    After being away for going on 40 years, I returned to the area a few months ago. It has been painful to see what these hard times have done to this paper, to read about the cuts and to imagine what it must be like for you, knowing your job has been in constant jeopardy.

    I sincerely hope that your new gig will bring you a bounty of both personal and professional rewards, ones that you so richly deserve. I guess I’ll just have to live with the dissonant feelings of wanting the Sox to lose every game while you win all 162.

  396. crimmins September 17th, 2009 at 8:46 pm

    For those of you who are childishly taking Pete’s decision personally pleae consider it in baseball terms. Pete’s gone from AAA to the Bigs. He’s moving from a fairly small regional paper to a major market daily and one of America’s marquee mastheads. Professionally speaking, his choice was a no-brainer. I’m sure all that delayed his decision was a sense of duty to his present employers and his loyal following. But this is Pete’s career and career-wise, he’d have been a fool to remain at his present gig.

    So all that’s left for us to do is to thank Mr. Abraham, wish him well and tell him we look forward to the day when the New York Times decides that it would prefer to have him writing for its NY paper rather than the one it owns in Boston.

    Congratulations and go get ‘em. Pete!

    Barry

  397. The Ghost September 17th, 2009 at 8:46 pm

    Good Luck Pete, glad to see that you left and weren’t let go like so many others. I doubt this place will be the same once you’re gone. You really made this thing your baby and didn’t miss one feeding. I can’t remember a time in the last year when I wanted to get the scoop on what is going on in pinstripes and thought to go anywhere else – and that is what it takes to have a successful blog. You were one of a kind and will be missed.

  398. B September 17th, 2009 at 8:46 pm

    Good luck man! I have enjoyed reading your blog….

  399. Will to the M September 17th, 2009 at 8:47 pm

    Say it ain’t so!
    You’ll be missed, and – sad as it is – fans over there are in for a treat.

  400. GardnerBelongsInCenter September 17th, 2009 at 8:47 pm

    It’s too bad joel sherman couldn’t go cover his favorite team instead.

    Any chance Carp is in line for this blog?

  401. Philippe in Alexandria (VA) September 17th, 2009 at 8:49 pm

    Xheer up Blogovians, we no wget two great blogs to enjoy: Pete’s and LoHud’s. We all win. Except Red Sucks. Not on this blog. Not ever.

  402. Ceci September 17th, 2009 at 8:49 pm

    Pete I read all the time,never comment to stay away from the name calling.Hope Boston knows what a class act they are getting.I wish you all success.You are a great blog master.

    Pete I remember the owner of Mlbtraderumors,starting his blog.He seen the potential,quit his job,and now hires writer and sports. contributors.

    IF Beantown don’t treat you right,start your own Sportsblog.You know the people here will support you.

    All the best to you,Pete.

    -Ceci

  403. Andy September 17th, 2009 at 8:51 pm

    This is for all the lurkers out there, as this is my first post, though I’ve been reading since the 2006 season: Good luck, Pete, and thanks for all the hard work and insight.

  404. Jhutch September 17th, 2009 at 8:52 pm

    Good luck Pete, My 2 years reading this blog has made me into a full member of the team, and we can’t begrudge you for leaving… But I feel like I got dumped by my girlfriend!! Right before the playoffs! Close to crying…

  405. BobbyC September 17th, 2009 at 8:52 pm

    Will miss your input on the Yankees, Boston will be a better place with you there. Maybe LoHud can wrangle Chad Jennings and bring him up to the Major Leagues, he deserves it.

  406. Jd September 17th, 2009 at 8:52 pm

    Hey Pete,
    I had to think if it was April at first?!
    Thanks for all you have done, you will be missed. Excited that you’ll leave the blog in good hands I hope!
    Have fun

    tinkinrocks

  407. Mark September 17th, 2009 at 8:52 pm

    Pete– all the best to you. Our loss is Boston’s gain. I will really miss your excellent coverage of the Yankees.

  408. Yogis September 17th, 2009 at 8:52 pm

    May Pete has a successful career in bean town(and bring some class to RSox).

  409. Virginia Yank September 17th, 2009 at 8:53 pm

    Best of luck to you Peter. I’m sad to hear you’re leaving. I frequent your blog and can take solace in the fact that my work productivity will shoot through the roof.

  410. Andrew (Franklin, MA) September 17th, 2009 at 8:54 pm

    I was born and raised in Norwich and remember reading your work daily in high school and college. As a Yankees fan living in Red Sox Nation, your blog has been in my favorites for a few years. You did great work here Peter, the Globe has improved its coverage, to say the least.

  411. Papelboner September 17th, 2009 at 8:54 pm

    A standing ovation for Pete. I enjoyed all the posts, except the ones bashing Arod.

  412. YankeesAce September 17th, 2009 at 8:54 pm

    Damn, this is my first post, but I’ve been reading the blog for a while now. I come here all the time to get my Yankee fix. Hopefully, someone will pick up where you left off. Good Luck up in Boston!

    By the way, are you going to call Pedroia a Leprechaun to his face? LOL!

  413. EY September 17th, 2009 at 8:55 pm

    All the best to you Peter. It somewhat upsets me because there’s now a writer who are going to portray the Sux players as, you know, human beings. It’s much more fun demonizing the enemies as no-good monsters than actual human beings with lives outside the game.

    Here’s to a Yankees championship. I sincerely hope that Pete’s final post on this blog will be one of celebratory note. That’d be a good way to end it.

  414. baseballfab September 17th, 2009 at 8:55 pm

    Wow.

    First congratulations.

    Ok, I have always known you were a sox fan, but you did a great job hiding it.

    As a true baseball fan, it is easy to respect Yankeesfans and Sox fans, we are brothers from different mother.

    Have fun with the sox fans, they are far more intense then we are as there is nothing else in boston at all. Here in NY there are a billion other things, teams etc.

    Lucky you grew up there, you will appreciate being back home to the best fans in the world.

  415. Ben September 17th, 2009 at 8:55 pm

    I wish you luck, and if you could, please punch Jonathon Papelbon in the face. Thank you for connecting us with the Yankees.

  416. Jensen September 17th, 2009 at 8:56 pm

    This is my favorite yankees blog. Good luck on your future Pete, and I hope this paper puts a writer even half as worthy in your place.

  417. EY September 17th, 2009 at 8:56 pm

    Oh also did I mention that I became a fan of this team after reading your blog religiously everyday since 3 years ago?

  418. cashman needs to go September 17th, 2009 at 8:57 pm

    hey lohud family – we should actually thank pete…this is good practice for when jeter and mo retire….

    pete – if the yankees win the WS and they pretty much return the same team next year (assuming the redsox do the same)..will you have the cojones to predict the yankees will win it all again or will you be the butt kissing homer and pick the redsox?

    also as a parting gift you should vote jeter and tex 1 and 2 in your MVP vote…

  419. Zack September 17th, 2009 at 8:57 pm

    Wow! I think we all understand, but it’s still with a sense of sadness. Your blog here is something special and it’s hard to believe its quality will continue. Good luck! But why did it have to be the Red Sox?!

  420. RickeyBeingRickey September 17th, 2009 at 8:57 pm

    Wow…I honestly feel sick to my stomach right now due to this loss. I was only tunred on to this blog about a year ago, and yet I’m devestated. It feels like Jeter just got traded to the Sox. I don’t view it as “traitor” at all, not even a little bit. I just feel a big loss. You are great Pete, and the Sox fans just don’t know how lucky they are!

  421. Chris September 17th, 2009 at 8:58 pm

    Keep an eye on your lawn…just kidding. Good luck, Pete. You will be missed.

  422. JT September 17th, 2009 at 8:59 pm

    So first Peter King goes to Boston and now Pete Abe. Whoever is next has a tough act to follow. All the best Pete.

  423. chag September 17th, 2009 at 9:00 pm

    I’m very saddened to hear the news, but I respect your decision. May your commitment continue to follow you in your future endeavor……with the RS Nation (I just threw up in my mouth). Get Sam or Chad on board NOW!

  424. Yankees September 17th, 2009 at 9:01 pm

    Well I know I won’t be following him on twitter anymore.

  425. Kurt A. Maitland September 17th, 2009 at 9:01 pm

    Pete – I’ve never posted on the board but I’ve read your blog everyday for 2+ years. You’ve been my favorite source of Yankee news and I miss you already.

    That said, best of luck in Boston. I’ve lived there and it can be fun (no NYC but hey). Being around your family is important so I understand your decision.

    As others have said, our loss is Boston’s gain.

    All the best

  426. jonathan September 17th, 2009 at 9:01 pm

    for the past few years, you and this blog have been the source of my yankee information. I am truly crushed that you are leaving us pete. This definatley leaves a void that will be nearly impossible to replace. To be truthful, I was angry at first that you are joining “the enemy” but it is really your hometown. G-d bless you pete, whether I agreed with you or not your love of baseball was evident and the sox fans are lucky to have you.

  427. KLev September 17th, 2009 at 9:02 pm

    Pete, I’ve been lucky enough to have known you more than 20 years, and to have reacquainted with you via the blog. In all honesty, this very good Yankee season has been made all the more enjoyable by your LoHud Yankee bog. As a displaced New Yorker, it got me connected to both the Yankees and my old neighbors. I check it multiple times a day, and either during or after the games. I’ll miss it and this connection with you. I’ll have to tell my Sox friends (and yes, I have some) to get on your bandwagon.
    Having known you since UMass days, and knowing your New England roots, this is a fantastic opportunity, and you would have been crazy not to take it. The Globe is one of the top papers in the nation, and its readers are lucky to have you. Congratulations, and all the best, Ken

  428. cashman needs to go September 17th, 2009 at 9:02 pm

    oh and one more thing pete..when papelbum goes into his meltdown mode and stinks the joint up..i hope you will point out just how classy, professional and better mo is than papelbum will ever be…you owe it to mariano to let the redsox fans know just what a special human being and player mo is…

  429. BD September 17th, 2009 at 9:02 pm

    Pete, congratulations on the great job you’ve done with this blog. I truly believe this: When somebody, someday, writes the definitive history of blogging, they’ll credit you with showing other papers how to leverage the beat-reporting talent they have on their sports pages to drive traffic to their websites.

    As far as your “loyalty” is concerned, the only surprise is your loyalty to the print media. I would have thought your next move would be to take your press pass and your legions of loyal readers and go completely independent!

  430. Jlips66 September 17th, 2009 at 9:03 pm

    Pete

    Good Luck! You deserve it bro (not that i know you, but i feel like i do). The blog has been an awesome daily read for me. Wish you the best.

  431. Jeff September 17th, 2009 at 9:03 pm

    Best blog ever is no more! I cant believe it.

    Pete, sorry to see you go. You rocked this place.

    Good luck man!

  432. john September 17th, 2009 at 9:04 pm

    good luck Pete, you will be missed

  433. Mac Daddy September 17th, 2009 at 9:06 pm

    where and to whom do i send my resume?

  434. Yanks_Fan September 17th, 2009 at 9:06 pm

    Wow, this is one of the toughest losses the Yankees have had this season! Im sure the real Yankee fans agree. As one of them, it has been hard to find a site on the internet where you can learn everything about the team you root for and have great discussions. Even if the blog stays, it will not be the same without you, Pete!

    I may not post as much as many others, but I come to this site almost religiously to read every great report and blog you put here. Not only you got us a lot of valuable information to read, but the way you present it, with funny and sarcastic remarks here and there, made this blog a great sanctuary for Yankee fans.

    But this is life. Each one of us that has a great dream and is still many steps away from achieving it understands that its really a great opportunity for you, Pete, and its one yo can’t miss. Im sure it was hard, but it was the right decision. One I really hope will be great for your career and personal life.

    Thanks a lot for all the great job you did in this blog and in all your articles. You’ve really helped a lot of us be more appreciative of our team and of baseball as the great sport it is. You don’t need luck, as you are really good at what you do. I wish you a lot of success in your career and health to spend quality time with your family.

    Thanks for all,
    Ramon aka Yanks_Fan

  435. Rich September 17th, 2009 at 9:06 pm

    Pete, I did not know what a blog was until I stumbled across yours. As a Yankees fan in Buffalo, your blog has provided me with the best Yankees insight I could ask for. All of us can only hope your replacement does half as good a job in covering the Yanks.

    Best of luck to you and thanks for all of the great work!

  436. Ira ScHIOWItz September 17th, 2009 at 9:07 pm

    Pete,
    Wish you all the best of good health and a great working environment at the Globe, THanks for supporting the young Yankee pithchers such as Hughes and Robertson, It has been a blast Ira

  437. Dave September 17th, 2009 at 9:07 pm

    I’ve been reading this blog for over two years, and this is the first post I’ve written. This isn’t welcome news, but I wish you the best of luck- you really have done a tremendous job. I hope there’s another blogger with your dedication and accessibility that’s ready to step up to the plate.

  438. Stacey September 17th, 2009 at 9:09 pm

    I can’t believe you’re leaving. I understand wanting to closer to family and all that but still. I just found your blog a few months ago. I love it and all of the inside info you share. You’ll be missed. Couldn’t you stay just through the playoffs?????

  439. thomas September 17th, 2009 at 9:09 pm

    Pete, can you please answer this question honestly for us? I think its a question all of us are wondering right now and it would mean alot to us if you answered it the way we want you to answer it.

    If the Yankees and Red Sox faced eachother in the ALCS, which team are you rooting for?

    and please don’t sugercoat it and say you root for the players, not the team. That’s not what we want to hear.

  440. Don Fanucci September 17th, 2009 at 9:09 pm

    Good luck Pete! Loved your coverage of the Yankees; you will be missed!

  441. Yanksrule57 September 17th, 2009 at 9:09 pm

    Pete,

    It truly has been a pleasure reading your work. You are as nice in person as you seem on the blog.
    I wish you the best in your new job and I don’t envy your editors job as he has tremendously large shoes to fill.

    Shoot, I may even have to start reading The Globe now.

  442. West Coast Fan September 17th, 2009 at 9:10 pm

    Good luck Pete. Have fun, don’t work too hard, and give them hell in Boston.

  443. YanksFanLV September 17th, 2009 at 9:12 pm

    Wow Pete,

    Congrats and good luck, even if it is with Boston. As with many others, my work performance is getting ready to go through the roof. You will be missed here good friend.

    -Kevin

  444. John Gilligan September 17th, 2009 at 9:12 pm

    Best of luck with the job at the Globe. This blog is one of the few I really make an effort to read and that’s due to your hard work. Congratulations and thanks.

  445. mfrac September 17th, 2009 at 9:13 pm

    Sad to see you go pete, good luck to you

  446. ojuice September 17th, 2009 at 9:13 pm

    Hi, i have been following your blog since the beginning, first thank you, secondly couldn’t you/they wait until the end of the season? thanx again we will all miss you, (i go to bed reading your posts and wake up reading “today in the jurnal news”) good luck

  447. JFH September 17th, 2009 at 9:16 pm

    Pete,

    This is a real bummer. Best of luck t you and thank you for providing me with a great destination for the last few years.

    JFH

  448. Gregg September 17th, 2009 at 9:17 pm

    I have never written a post, but I had to write to thank you for these wonderful years of feeling connected on the inside of the Yankees thru your blog. I have been a Yankee fan since I was 4 years old. I would have sworn that you loved them like I do. You are the greatest, and I pray that you will find tremendous success in Boston and then return to us down the road. God bless you, Peter.

  449. Mo September 17th, 2009 at 9:17 pm

    You suck Pete.

    Seriously, good luck. It was a pleasure to follow your blog and I wish you the best. You were very nice to me on opening day in Baltimore this year, and often took time to respond to my emails.

    I’ll definitely miss your blog, but I wish you the best of luck in life and your career.

  450. Mo September 17th, 2009 at 9:17 pm

    You suck Pete.

    I’ll definitely miss your blog, but I wish you the best of luck in life and your career.

  451. Rob in Vt. September 17th, 2009 at 9:18 pm

    Congratulations on your new opportunity. Thanks for your efforts on the blog and for keeping Yankee fans informed on our team.

  452. Barb27 September 17th, 2009 at 9:20 pm

    I don’t post often and don’t have time from doing my work tonight to read the 400+ comments before mine. I’m sure they have all covered you are a great writer, you will be missed, your wit is irreplacable (sp) and that is the truth. IMO it is important to be close to family (I’ve lost enough of them to know) and it great to have outgrown your current position to go on to someplace better. We will all miss your opinions on the Yankees and the background stories as you have done a wonderful job. Best of luck to you along with many Congrats!

  453. Jaime September 17th, 2009 at 9:20 pm

    Pete,

    I grew up in NY and I live in Hong Kong. I’m a huge Yankee fan. But I’m a die hard Pete Abraham fan. This is great news for you. But awful news for all of us who end and begin our day with your posts. Out here I watch the games on MLB.com in the morning. I get in early to work, fire up the game, have some coffee and do emails and paper work before the real day begins. But it’s always, always accompanied by your blog. And it is YOUR blog. It has a point of view, good inside stuff, and a sense of community and camraderie that you created. We will miss you.

    You are a supremely talented writer with insight into the game and the fans. You run circles around every other beat writer in NY and it’s a shame you’re not staying. You deserve your opportunity and I wish you all the best. It’d be great if you ended up on ESPN.com or MLB.com — too much talent wasted on the Red Sox! Can you put in a good word for the guy from Scranton you’re always raving about? We need a good replacement!

    Congratulations.

  454. GGTM September 17th, 2009 at 9:22 pm

    Good luck Pete.

  455. Sports Update September 17th, 2009 at 9:23 pm

    Pete, I am not a regular poster to your blog but I read it every day. You are an outstanding writer and have a real feel for the Yankees. In fact, I check in several times a day — especially late afternoon and early evening on the day of games to get the latest Yankee news. Your departure is a real loss to true Yankee fans. Clearly, you will have a blast covering the Red Sox and a new challenge is always great. Best of luck in your new role.

  456. Annie M. September 17th, 2009 at 9:24 pm

    NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

    First time poster, longtime lurker.

    Pete, your blog is my first stop when I turn on the computer, with about twenty more visits throughout the day. :)

    Love the 24/7 feel of the blog. Do you ever sleep? :) Great job by you, the subs and the background people.

    Good luck at Boston.com. I enjoy your writing, so I’ll lurk over there from time to time.

    I hope all of your archives here are staying intact.

    Annie M.

  457. Yanks4Life September 17th, 2009 at 9:24 pm

    I have lost all respect for u.

  458. Roster Rooster September 17th, 2009 at 9:24 pm

    Im gonna miss listening to the Post Game, and saying “Thats PeteAbe” to my friends. They gave me a look at first, but now, they all visit multiple times per day. We came for the Yankees coverage, but we stayed for the PeteAbe.

    You should be proud of all you’ve done here Pete. You just had 1 million comments, and you recently BloggerViewed Yogi Berra. (I dont see Tim Dierks doing that!!!) You were truly a Journalism Pioneer.

    No one can replace Peter. Lohud should make it a 3 man team. Thats the only way it can come close to the level of coverage we’ve grown accustomed to.

    You’re a good, and funny writer, and I’m you’ll be successful wherever you go. Best Wishes, and thanks for making my life better over the last few years.

  459. michael September 17th, 2009 at 9:26 pm

    Were gonna miss u here peter..thank you for everything you have done for the blog. Good luck..enjoy the time being closer to your family, its always more important.

  460. nettles September 17th, 2009 at 9:27 pm

    Oh sure. Why don’t you just gouge out my eyes with a dull spoon, beat my wife and kids, and light my dog on fire while you’re at it. :)

    Seriously, all the best to you in Boston. I hope the move works out well for you. The Globe is a fine paper. However, the Sawx fans are heathens, and unworthy of your talents. But maybe since the Times owns the Globe, you’ll find your way back to NY via the corporate route.

    I’m glad I stopped by when I was at the 9/1/09 game in Baltimore to say hi to you. Your writing and blogging has brought more enjoyment to my Yankee fandom than you’ll ever know.

    Best,
    Nettles

    PS: Now maybe you can tell us what you REALLY think of A-Rod! ;)

  461. miked860 September 17th, 2009 at 9:28 pm

    Damn, just damn.

  462. Jim September 17th, 2009 at 9:28 pm

    Pete,

    Thank you for your tremendous dedication to all things Yankees. Nothing but the best.

  463. Jessica September 17th, 2009 at 9:30 pm

    Good bye Peter. Have been your reader for years since Wang joined MLB. Thank you for being supportive and being a great poster to share things about Yankees and Wang. I understand it’s not an easy decision for you, but congradulates to you with all the best.

    Thank you for being so warm and understanding. Don’t forget you have lots fans in Taiwan as well, and we love you just like we do to Wang. ^_^

  464. rb September 17th, 2009 at 9:31 pm

    Wow, Pete. This sucks. Boston of all places! Best of luck to you.

    Thanks for the great Yankee coverage. You will be missed. :(

  465. PL September 17th, 2009 at 9:32 pm

    Peter,

    I’ve been an infrequent poster over the past 3 years, but an avid reader of this blog. In fact, it has become my first stop when I surf the net because of the timely information and insight that you provide.

    Your blog and dedication to it has had a profound impact on many fans when you consider that they make visiting your blog a priority for their free time.

    Thank you for your oustanding work. It will not be forgotten.

    WoW. I don’t post much but this is the main way I follow the Yanks from North Carolina since I moved hire 1 1/2 years ago from Westchester County. I check in ALL the time. Pete, you will be sorely missed. Two weeks? Ugh! You have very big shoes to fill. I hope the Journal News can find a replacement. Good luck!! Maybe I’ll see you at a Bruce show!

  467. talltenor September 17th, 2009 at 9:33 pm

    As we say in opera, “In Bocca al Lupo!”

    Wow. Sad, sad day. All the best Pete!

  469. Frankie D September 17th, 2009 at 9:35 pm

    Pete -

    Another long time first time – just wanted to say that you made many a workday bearable and your work will be greatly missed. Gonna hafta find someone else to occupy the hours that should be spend doing actual work. Sweent and the WFAN blog’s don’t post nearly enough to make up the slack, and I haven’t found anything else nearly as good as yours. Best of luck in Beantown!

    thanks

  470. Yankeeboy98 September 17th, 2009 at 9:35 pm

    You gotta try to get on SNY, WCBS, or YES one more time before leaving.

  471. Tomko's Ghost September 17th, 2009 at 9:36 pm

    Pete:
    Looked forward to reading your blog every day. Do what you have to do: you are a funny, decent man, and a good baseball thinker. Blessings to you in all your endeavors. (PS..family is THE most important thing…!)

  472. ray c September 17th, 2009 at 9:36 pm

    Only in the past month or so did I discover your blog. I truly enjoyed your humor and wit. You will be missed and I guarantee you will miss your obsessed yankee fan followers it will not be the same up there.

  473. StanmanBatman September 17th, 2009 at 9:36 pm

    NOOOOOOOOOOO

    Et tu Brutus?!!!!

  474. FrankLM September 17th, 2009 at 9:37 pm

    Pete,
    thanks for all your hard work and dedication over the years. Like many others here, this blog has been part of my daily routine and we can only hope that your replacement gives us half the insight into the Yankee clubhouse that you have. Best of luck in Boston and here’s to hoping that you have plenty of turmoil and failures to write and blog about!

  475. E-gawa September 17th, 2009 at 9:37 pm

    Ah so NOW I understand that Patriot comment a few days ago!

    That’s really unforunate, this is the best Yankee/info/blog/whatever you want to call it out there.

    Good luck over there and enjoy your early october vacation.

  476. Michael September 17th, 2009 at 9:37 pm

    Peter,

    I’ll miss your Yankee coverage and superb taste in music.

    Best of Luck,

    Michael

  477. BA September 17th, 2009 at 9:38 pm

    WHOA! This blog has been essentially the Front Page of my internet news reading EVERY day for the past few years. This is very depressing news for us readers (as none of the other Yankees blogs compare to yours), but it sounds like a great opportunity for you, so best of luck to you. I will surely recommend your Red Sox (ACK!) blog to the Sox fans I know, assuming you start one at The Globe.

  478. NinerDeepSouth September 17th, 2009 at 9:38 pm

    To quote Bill Murray in Stripes: “You can’t leave. The plants will die.”

    Honestly, I’m not happy. Pete Abe is the first thing I turn to each day. No one can match your energy. I can not handle any Red Sox ink so I guess this is it. It was more than fun while it lasted.

    God bless you.

  479. StanmanBatman September 17th, 2009 at 9:39 pm

    Anyway, good luck with Boston. I enjoyed reading this blog, and was probably the first blog I checked out regarding the Yankees on a daily basis. Hopefully whoever replaces you can come close to what you have done here in the past. But family and in the economic times, job stability are very important, so I understand you wanting to take the job, even though its covering the Red Sox.

    I expect you to uncover that Beckett is on steroids, PETE!!!

    Anyway, good luck.

  480. Duke September 17th, 2009 at 9:39 pm

    Ever hear of baseball superstitions? You have no choice but to finish the season out.

  481. YourCaptainHits220 September 17th, 2009 at 9:40 pm

    Thank you for telling me this now. Thats awesome I have to get my Yankee news from a guy who is now a Red Sox. In this biggest stretch this team has had since 2000 you are now telling me this. Great thats awesome. I have lost all respect now and will not be going to this site anymore. I guess I should start getting my Yankee News from the newspaper, not named the Journal. Thanks for nothing

  482. Brian M September 17th, 2009 at 9:41 pm

    Strange thing with online communities. It feels like we should be passing a hat round to get Pete a going away gift.

    I think we can all agree though that he at least deserves our heartfelt thanks for tirelessly working to bring us up to the minute news and to give it a proper context so we can understand what it really meant for the team. And he never ran out of ‘old’ jokes for Berroa!

    Best pickup Boston made this year!

  483. NumberOnePositivePoster September 17th, 2009 at 9:41 pm

    Pete, I saw a comment that this is a punch in the gut, it kind of does feel like that, but in the end we all need to succeed and fulfill our professional happiness.

    This only hurts cause we respected and appreciated everything you did on your blog and for you newspaper stories. Thank you for all your hard work. Enjoy those precious moments with family, those are very important. Good luck!

    P.S. I’m really not rooting for you to have great stories in Boston, if the Red Sox turn into Omar Minaya’s Mets then I can’t say I’ll feel your pain, if you don’t have any good stories or playoff stories to write about. I’d rather it be that way.

  484. John In Boston September 17th, 2009 at 9:42 pm

    You can stay in NY, we don’t want a yankees fan covering the SOX

  485. This Year September 17th, 2009 at 9:42 pm

    Not in the least surprised. What P always wanted. Total bosox fan. Did a great job building this blog, but his sympathies were always apparent. Good luck and good riddance.

  486. CB September 17th, 2009 at 9:43 pm

    Pete,

    Congratulations! It’s a testament to what you’ve accomplished here that in this economic climate for newspapers you’d be offered such a wonderful opportunity to further yourself professionally and personally.

    You’ve been a pioneer in sports journalism. There’s no two ways about it. Given the impact that digital media is having and will continue to have on journalism as a whole and sport journalism in particular, there’s no way to downplay the impact that you’ve had on your profession.

    Very few people can legitimately say that. But you authentically can.

    You’ll be missed. Good luck on your future endeavors.

  487. Kyle September 17th, 2009 at 9:44 pm

    Pete,

    Congrats on the new job. You’ll be missed, but you were offered a great opportunity and get to be close to your family.

    Your blog changed how people cover baseball. It was a smart idea to embrace technology in an industry that has been evolving from paper to the internet.

    You provided great insight into the Yankee clubhouse. You updated the blog regularly and it’s been a joy to read it.

    Good luck at the Globe… but just don’t bring the Red Sox any luck lol.

  488. Pamb September 17th, 2009 at 9:47 pm

    SO sorry to have you go. You have set a great standard for sports blogging, heck any blogging. I am out in California and follow you fanatically But you are not a traitor. Reasons understood. We need to get you back to NY soon, speaking purely selfishly. Bonne chance but Go Yankees!

  489. Ed September 17th, 2009 at 9:48 pm

    Wow, the Yanks without the Blogfather. What a bummer.

    Thanks for the great ride, Pete. The blog was very special, and you certainly deserve the upward career move. Does that mean you will be on Globe 10.0 ????

  490. J September 17th, 2009 at 9:48 pm

    Wow, this is the worst possible news for me… I have no idea how I am going to get through the workday without this blog. You will be missed by Yankee Universe.

    Best of luck at the Globe. They’re in for a heck of a writer. (this better not start a curse of some sort…)

  491. Good Luck to a Great Guy September 17th, 2009 at 9:48 pm

    At least I can say i knew you when you were covering high school basketball. I’ll never forget the night we were playing Lakeland and it was a late start, you made sure to call me before the game and let me know to call you ASAP after the game so you could get in the next days paper, We won a thriller and it meant so much to have the game get the attention it deserved because you made the extra effort. You have had tremendous success because you WORK HARD, good things happen to people that work hard. On behalf of all of the high school basketball coaches that you were so good to back in the day I wish Good luck and best wishes for a continued succesful prosperous career.

    Thanks,
    Dave Greiner

  492. zmaster September 17th, 2009 at 9:48 pm

    peter… r u 4 real?

  493. elauerm1 September 17th, 2009 at 9:49 pm

    Pete:

    I found your blog this year, and IMMENSELY enjoy reading it. As a Yankees fan, your coverage and commitment to the team through this blog and the stories in the papers, appearances on radio shows, etc. is second-to-none. As a Brentwood, NH resident (50 miles from Boston), I will tell you that the passion found in Red Sox fans is second only to that found in Yankees fans — although I’m sure they disagree…

    You will have a great time in Boston, and your new Red Sox blog (I guess?) will be a hit here just like the Yankees one in New York. I’ll probably (definitely) even read it so I can get my Red Sox news!

    Anyway, I’m looking forward to seeing your stories in the Boston Globe. I’m a regular subscriber, and I’ll be looking for them!

    Best of luck, and congratulations. You deserve nothing less.
    Take care, and have fun!
    Best wishes,
    Elias

  494. Jim September 17th, 2009 at 9:49 pm

    I wonder how the players will feel that you betrayed them you fat, greedy toad.

  495. Jim Competent September 17th, 2009 at 9:50 pm

    You were an incompetent half wit and it’s about time you cover a team worthy of your best efforts. Thanks for nothing, you disgusting waste. You and the Red Sox were made for each other.

  496. Matt Saland September 17th, 2009 at 9:50 pm

    Pete,

    I have been reading your blog for about two years now. I have never written because I am a bit of a low key person when it comes to commenting on stuff. I am a diehard yanks fan and check your site everyday at least 5 times a day. I am truly saddened to see you leave, especially for the Red Sox although no hard feelings. I am writing today solely to thank you for your commitment to the blog and the timely updates. I wish you nothing but the best.

    Regards,

    Matt

  497. Joe September 17th, 2009 at 9:50 pm

    You will be missed. Thank you!

  498. Eric September 17th, 2009 at 9:52 pm

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Pete, I love your work and your relentless coverage of the Yankees. I have searched all over the internet and can not find anywhere that covers the Yankees with as much information or as timely as you. I check this website 4, 5 times a day to keep up with all things Yankees. I sure whomever replaces you will keep up on things like you. By the way, I can’t believe you’re going to Boston. I would rather die than live in Boston. I hope you come back and tell the paper to find someone that is willing to work hard all day long like you!

  499. Chris September 17th, 2009 at 9:52 pm

    Best of luck Pete – and thanks for all of the great coverage.

  500. elauerm1 September 17th, 2009 at 9:52 pm

    …and by the way, John in Boston, and all the other negative comments in here are just from jealousy. Wait till John reads your Red Sox blog. I bet he’ll change his mind!

  501. Joey Ramone September 17th, 2009 at 9:52 pm

    Congratulations and good luck. Hopefully you will help restore the Globe Sports section to what it used to be…

    I just hope that whomever replaces you at the blog will be as dedicated as you have been!

  502. CanoFan September 17th, 2009 at 9:53 pm

    This is a terrible loss to Yankees fans. You have been the best source for information and sometimes even humor regarding the Yankees. I have enjoyed your blog for years, and Boston is VERY lucky to have such a great writer. I hope the person who replaces you here is half the writer you are.

    Good Luck, Pete.

    P.S. Boston sucks.

  503. Brian in 702 September 17th, 2009 at 9:53 pm

    YOU SOLD OUT!

    just kidding, all the best Pete

  504. mike September 17th, 2009 at 9:54 pm

    Its going to take some getting used to not udating this blog a hundred times a day…Good luck Pete. You are a pioneer.

  505. rob8129 September 17th, 2009 at 9:55 pm

    Wow Pete, quite a shock! I wish you all the best up in Boston. Your blog was one of the things I looked forward to everyday and it will be sorely missed. Your blog allowed me to get an insight not only on the Yankees, but what the beat writers go through on a daily basis. Your blog was always well written and interesting. Much better than just reading a story in the paper or box score. It’s funny, for such a well written blog, I just can’t seem to find the words to fully express as to how much I love this blog and how much it has enriched my view of baseball from both the players to those who cover them. Once again, all the best and maybe, just maybe, in the future I might be able to read a piece about the Red Sox without feeling ill. ;)

  506. Dan Manco September 17th, 2009 at 9:56 pm

    Pete – I am crushed as this my favorite Yanks coverage anywhere period but kudos for the new gig! You will be missed & Boston is lucky to get you!

  507. Brian in Iowa September 17th, 2009 at 9:57 pm

    I love this blog. I think you are a pioneer in how you report and comment on sports through this format, no else comes close. I check it out dozens of times a day. It makes me want to puke knowing that the Red Sox fans will now be enjoying your skill and expertise in blogging about baseball, but I understand your decision. Family is the most important thing and I can’t fault you for thinking of them first.

    God bless, Pete, and thanks for the memories!

  508. Terry from NH September 17th, 2009 at 10:02 pm

    Pete- kinda shocking, but $$ talks! Very informative and have always added great talk for this blog. I’ve been a Yankee fan since 75 and have never been able to communicate with Yankee fans the way I do now and that was accomplished through this blog. Thanks to you! .. On the other hand, really the Redsox?? .. Not sure how I feel about that with “loyalty”, but this blog will live on with us Yankee fans..

  509. Brian M September 17th, 2009 at 10:02 pm

    I just checked out the Boston.com website to see where Pete is landing. When I saw the picture of his new colleague Amalie Benjamin suddenly his true motives for moving became clear ;)

  510. RANSOM SUCKS September 17th, 2009 at 10:03 pm

    CONGRATULATIONS PETE

  511. Omar September 17th, 2009 at 10:04 pm

    Will the press boxes in Boston be able to support your weight? Fenway’s kinda old, I’d be worried about that if I were you.

  512. Jonathan September 17th, 2009 at 10:05 pm

    Pete,
    A simple thank you and good luck. You are, and will remain, one of the best bloggers out there.

  513. Blackaccord September 17th, 2009 at 10:05 pm

    In baseball terms, this one came right out of left field…

    good luck pete.. hope the blog goes into the hands of a beat writer like you

  514. Rob Thomspn September 17th, 2009 at 10:06 pm

    Tell me again how leaving New York for Boston is a boost to your career? Seems like you’re seriously downsizing in your market. Now, you’re dead to me. You should leave now. Sorry to be so cruel but this is Yankees versus Red Sox. I want a Yankee beat writer running this blog. NOt the enemy.

  515. Kurt September 17th, 2009 at 10:06 pm

    Pete,

    Of all the teams, you go to them ! from this day forward our relationship is strictly business. We wish you well, however we will not be following you or them…

  516. Omar September 17th, 2009 at 10:07 pm

    Anyways, congrats on the new gig…your A-Rod bashing and Sox lover will be universally accepted by the fans there. And with Youkilis there you’ll never be the least attractive person in the room. Also, Amalie Benjamin is average at best…but still out of your league.

  517. Pris September 17th, 2009 at 10:07 pm

    I m not kidding, I m literally in tears now knowing we will no longer get the insight and inside of the Yankees….
    Pete you are the best of what you do, best wish for ur future and Boston still sucks…..
    What have Sox fans done to deserve you…

  518. The Captain September 17th, 2009 at 10:08 pm

    Pete – I am crushed but happy as hell for you. Good luck and for what it’s worth, I don’t think you are a traitor. A Guy has to work and be happy and this sounds like the place for you now. Thanks for the great coverage. You will be missed real bad.

  519. Bigfan September 17th, 2009 at 10:08 pm

    Congrats and best of luck, you will be greatly missed by all Yankee fans. I’ll be sure to let all my Boston friends know that you are a MUST READ!

  520. JJ September 17th, 2009 at 10:09 pm

    Super happy for you. Sucks for us.

    enjoy Sully and co as your new pals.

  521. This Year September 17th, 2009 at 10:09 pm

    For those of you who believe P agonizedover this for 48 hrs, I have a bridge to sell you. He maybe took 48 seconds to say yes to his hometown team. Nothing wrong with that. But spare me the bs. Ridiculous. Wait until his first BG blog. It will be as this never existed. Frankly, I think he should have stayed here. The BG is in big trouble.

  522. Daniel September 17th, 2009 at 10:10 pm

    Pete you have done a great job and will be missed.

  523. tblyankees September 17th, 2009 at 10:12 pm

    Pete-I have been reading your blog every day for probably two years now, and it was always great. Thanks for all the hard work!

  524. Brian M September 17th, 2009 at 10:13 pm

    CB –
    ‘ Given the impact that digital media is having and will continue to have on journalism as a whole and sport journalism in particular, there’s no way to downplay the impact that you’ve had on your profession.’

    Absolutely. It is kinda funny to see all the other beat writers starting blogs to try to tap into what Pete has built, without realizing how much work Pete does on the blog, and then not post for an entire series.

    An opportunity earned. No doubt.

  525. greggy September 17th, 2009 at 10:15 pm

    Pete,
    I’ve been a regular reader of this blog since you started it, and it amazes me even today how great it is relative to other newspaper sports blogs.

    You clearly were among the first beat writers to “get” how to blog, how to blog in a way that compliments your print work, and how to bring to fans information they never had access to previously through other media. Over time I think you probably grew to feed on the energy of the community here that you created and host; it showed in your writing and near continual posting, and this blog has continued to get better and better.

    I really hope your replacement is able to continue that tradition, with the humor and nose for the stories, angles, and trivia big and small that you have shared with us that have, from my perspective, been really unique and added a completely new dimension to my fan experience.

    You should feel very proud of what you’ve done here, and congrats on the new gig. It will be the only Red Sox blog I will ever (occasionally) read.

  526. Betsy September 17th, 2009 at 10:15 pm

    Oh Pete! So sad to read this. I have enjoyed your blog very much indeed. Best of luck.

  527. Fernando Alejandro (Respect Jeter's Gangster) September 17th, 2009 at 10:17 pm

    Congratulations Pete and good luck. It will suck for us.

  528. Noojy September 17th, 2009 at 10:17 pm

    Pete.. U were able to bring the yankees closer to us than anyone else has. You’ll be missed. Good luck bud!!

  529. Yanks September 17th, 2009 at 10:17 pm

    Long time reader, first time comment.

    You have done one hell of a job covering the Yankees and this is by far the best site out there for the latest yankee news. It is sad to see you go but I respect your decision and wish you the best at the Globe.

    Good luck Pete and I hope you have fun.

  530. Jeff in MA September 17th, 2009 at 10:19 pm

    Pete, I’m sure it’s been said above, but your successor will have big shoes to fill. Your blog is one of the best baseball blogs around — hopefully it’ll stay good, but it definitely will be different with a new writer.

    I’ll especially miss your insights during the playoffs this year. We only get the Sunday Globe, and my wife is the one who reads it, but now I’ll have a reason to put down my Sunday NYT and look for your work there. Thanks for all that you’ve done for us and best of luck with the step up.

  531. Shame Spencer September 17th, 2009 at 10:20 pm

    Hey Pete, I dont post very often but I’m a daily reader. Actually, its more like hourly. You’ve done an awesome job here on LoHud and this really is the best Yankees blog around. The next guy has big shoes to fill. While I’m of course especially sad you wont be covering the rest of this season, I look forward to seeing you cover another team.. one I happen to hate with a deep burning passion (but I’m still trying not to think about that part…).

    Basically, you’ve done a great job. Far exceeding the expectations of even the most passionate, dedicated fans… Best of luck!

  532. Michael September 17th, 2009 at 10:20 pm

    Peter are you crazy? You wanna leave New York “God Bless You” but to go and work for the Boston Globe that’s another question. I know you know the story up there 24/7 Red Sox and that paper tells you when a player sneezes but come on enough is enough. That was what was great about you you gave us 24/7 but you gave levity to us also. And you gave us your opinion about the Yanks etc… As you may know that does work up there with the writers all Red Sox pom pom wearers except of course for Shaugnesy and Maserotti. Mr. Maserotti gets chastised now if he questions the Sawx and Mr. Shaugnesy has made a career out of being different then the others unless you are going to be like Mr. Shaugnesy don’t go. By the way if you don’t listen to my opinion you will be able to move around better in Boston you will be covering a team that uses the home clubhouse… Different Locker Room. Anyhow good luck but don’t go. You will be missed…

  533. RIYank September 17th, 2009 at 10:21 pm

    Wow.
    I’m really, really disappointed. Dammit. I must warn you that you may not be appreciated in Red Sox Nation… at least not right away.
    But good for you, and congratulations, and I hope you love it and thrive and write brilliant columns for the next fifty years about why the Sox never win the World Series.

  534. Screw-the-Stache September 17th, 2009 at 10:21 pm

    Always follow the money. Is this any different than those “greedy” free agents? Pete would cover the local Little League team for extra pancake money.

    But I have to confess, I’m scared to think of who might take over for you. Your occasional pinch-hitters never impressed me, so I fear a dramatic fall off in detailed up-to-the-minute coverage.

    Good luck you Giambi-lovin, hypocritical, Stalin-like post purging fatso.

  535. StandingO'Neill September 17th, 2009 at 10:22 pm

    Pete you will truly be missed. Thank you for the last 3 years (although its felt like an eternity). As someone said earlier, its like when Mike and the Maddog split. You just get so attached to these people and then they are gone just like that. Pete if the Redsox get knocked out early and the Yankees go far in the postseason, I want you to join us out in the right field bleachers buddy! lol. Again best of luck to you on one heck of a promotion. Godspeed.

    Oh and as someone else mentioned earlier, Mike Ashmore would be a tremendous get for lohud. I’ve emailed him before regarding information on the Thunder and he could not have been more accomodating or informative regarding my questions. Although I don’t know that I wish the torture of attacks on him that he’d have to endure after a tough playoff loss from some of the bloggers here, lol. Pete can attest to that I’m sure. But if I had a vote he’d be my pick.

  536. Jake September 17th, 2009 at 10:23 pm

    sucks to see you go pete. I check your blog pretty much every hour waiting for new stuff. You do a great job with it and hopefully sox fans will appreciate your great work. Thanks pete. Good Luck!

  537. Peter R September 17th, 2009 at 10:24 pm

    Good luck sir! You clearly built the greatest Yankee blog on the inter-googles and I feel bad for the Journal that they have to try and find someone to fill your shoes.

    Thanks for all the honest stories and funny comments and I will miss your writing.

    Especially thanks for keeping all us Yankee fans calm and cool at times when we can get a little hot headed, your “whoa…calm down guys Yanks still 3 games up…” comments really helped.

    Best of luck to you up in Boston, I just feel bad for you that you have to move from the Trump tower of press (the Yankees press box) to the old crapbox that pretends to be a baseball stadium (Fenway Field). Maybe stop by the blog now and then to say hello when the Roid Sox are in town…getting there ass’s whooped.

    Oh and give those Bawston dicks my love….and tell them I hope to see them in playoffs.

  538. mark (matts Dad) September 17th, 2009 at 10:25 pm

    Peter,
    I understand your decision and wish you well. I knew nothing about blogs until my son introduced me to yours. I have been a Yankee fan for nearly 50 years and your blog has let me learn more about the Yankees and enjoy the games than I ever had before. My wife will be happy as I won’t need to be on the blackberry as much. Again good luck and I knew you would be headed to bigger things, I just hoped it would be in NY.

  539. merfff September 17th, 2009 at 10:25 pm

    Pete, just promise that you will come back and guest blog once the Yankees get to the series, I was very much looking forward to a world series edition of the lohud blog…

    Good luck in Boston Pete. Thank you for all the work you did for this blog. It was a pleasure reading this blog everyday. I really enjoyed and looked forward to what you had to say about the greatest team on Earth, the New York Yankees. Thank you again and best wishes to you Pete.

  541. islesfan September 17th, 2009 at 10:27 pm

    Good luck in Boston Pete. We all know how important your family is to you, so I’m happy for you to get the opportunity to be closer to them. I’m sure it’s a great opportunity for you, despite having to cover a lame team, and I wish you nothing but the best. It’s been great reading your Yankee coverage all these years and yours is the only Yankee blog that I was a regular reader of. You’ll be missed.

    Oh and one more thing:

    J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!!!! We’re going to destroy your boy Brady this Sunday. He’s going to wish someone would just take out his knee again.

  542. Jeff in MA September 17th, 2009 at 10:27 pm

    Wow. Some shockingly pinheaded comments above. Amazing that anyone could think Pete’s some kind of betrayer for taking an opportunity to advance his career. I thought only Sawx fans were that dumb :)

    (now that I’ve had a chance to go back and read some of the comments)

  543. Cape Cod Holy Cow September 17th, 2009 at 10:31 pm

    I’m a Yankee fan living in Red Sox country. Your blog was the best link, hands down, for Yankees coverage anywhere. Hopefully, the Globe will let you do the same kind of blog coverage on Boston.com.

  544. rbizzler September 17th, 2009 at 10:32 pm

    Whoa, Congrats Pete! You will be missed. All of my Sox fan friends have no idea how good they are about to have it. (insert sad face)

  545. Alex September 17th, 2009 at 10:32 pm

    Noooooooooooooooooo!

    Pete, you will be sorely missed. I mean, checking this blog multiple times per day all year round is such a part of our daily routines that it’s like we’re losing a family member. Thanks for providing us with the best Yankees coverage anywhere. The fans of Boston are in for a real treat.

    Congratulations on a move that will further your career and I’m glad it brings you closer to your family.

  546. Sideline20 September 17th, 2009 at 10:33 pm

    Best of luck Pete. I have enjoyed all your hard work this season. The bad news is you lose Kim Jones but on the other hand you pick up Heidi Watney. Sounds fair to me.

  547. Mark Kratina September 17th, 2009 at 10:33 pm

    Hey Pete-

    First time poster but 3-year lurker. I caught on in late 2006 when you were updating on the Yanks bringing back Pettitte and I’ve been a follower ever since as your site has been “favorited” since then. I thought I should register here and thank you for the three years- this was the BEST site for Yankees coverage and I think it was really pretty revolutionary as far as access to the team. I can’t tell you how much I appreciated it- I loved your often times hilarious commentary and cover age of the team.

    I must admit, I was a bit floored when I read this tonight but, as a follower of the blog, I was familiar with your posts earlier in the year about your paper asking for furloughs, etc. Congratulations to you on the promotion- that is really a credit to what a great you’ve done and what a great reporter you are. And to go home to boot- that’s just great for you.

    Best of luck in your new job at the Globe. You’ve earned it- and as a lifelong Yankee fan, all your cracks at Alex Rodriguez’s expense the past year were well deserved by Alex. I know you took some criticism for that, but I am a Yankee fan who lives in Omaha, Nebraska and obviously am out of the fishbowl of the NY sports scene. As such I can look at Alex objectively and say he had a period there of behaving like a tool and he deserved everything he got. To your credit, you gave Alex credit when his performance on the field this year warranted praise. We’ll miss you here.

  548. gmarchese(Yanks and More) September 17th, 2009 at 10:34 pm

    Hey Pete congratulations but this does suck, they won’t be able to replace you, you are truly the best at what you do and this will be a huge void for us yankee and blogger diehards. It was a pleasure meeting you in Scranton a couple of weeks ago and good luck but you will be missed. I wonder if they would consider having some of us regulars taking on the blog LOL.

  549. Olan September 17th, 2009 at 10:37 pm

    Hey Pete,

    Thanks for the update and the news. I check your blog 20+ times a day just for any type of news. Altho I’m not a lifetime yankee fan, but I jump on board when chien-ming wang starts pitching in the major league. I saw your blog on a chinese news website, since they often quote you in their articles. Your blog provides lots of joy and excitement over the past 3 times. Thank you for the effort and time and best of luck in Boston.

  550. Cumberberg September 17th, 2009 at 10:37 pm

    Pete – We’ll miss you! Your blog has been absolutely fantastic and my first read before and after every game. Loved your insights and your humor. Best of luck to you in Boston.

  551. Yanks_Fan September 17th, 2009 at 10:38 pm

    Wow, Im really shocked by the few negative messages. Its funny how some call Pete “greedy” and say its “all about the money”. First of all, we all, or at least most here have a passion that we transform into our profession and look to succeed in it step by step. You want to say you wouldn’t want to succeed in your careers? Talk about hypocrites.

    Second, if Pete is the Red Sox fan some here are suggesting, which really doesn’t matter, then more respect to Pete for being the professional he has been in bringing us the best coverage the Yankees have had in a long time.

    Learn something, please: If you have nothing good to say, then don’t say anything.

  552. rob September 17th, 2009 at 10:38 pm

    Best blog in town, I will miss you. Good Luck!

  553. Caryn September 17th, 2009 at 10:40 pm

    I don’t comment…but I read EVERY post.

    Your going to be missed. I hope that the Red Soxs and their fans know how lucky they are to have you!

  554. wellmissya September 17th, 2009 at 10:41 pm

    Pete, I’m quite sad to hear that you’ll be leaving.

    However I am quite proud-of/happy-for you. I wish you nothing but the best of luck and will definitely be checking your work out in the future (gotta keep tabs on the competition.)

    Checking this blog several times a day has been a pleasure. You have really become an integral part of my Yankees fan experience. I really don’t know what I’ll do without you!

    Good luck and god bless

  555. Tony September 17th, 2009 at 10:43 pm

    I’m sorry, but I couldn’t have sadi this any better…Sorry to rip you off Tony…

    I can’t believe how genuinely upset I am right now…for a 36 year old dude I am perilously close to shedding a tear over this news. I’m simply devastated…I checked the blog probably 15-20 times a day and it as my primary source for Yankee news. It was always a bright spot in my day when I could read an interesting insight on the team that I knew I wouldn’t find anywhere else. And now all of the sudden, just before we go on our march to the world series I’m losing my favorite website? I’m speechless..I suppose all I can say is thank you, thank you Pete for giving all of us outstanding coverage of the team for all this time. I understand the decision altho I don’t support it…I also can’t believe you’ll be covering boston, it’s just so wierd! Well it’s a sad day for all us Yankee fans, I can’t tell you how much you’ll be missed.

  556. Nate September 17th, 2009 at 10:44 pm

    Of all teams the red sox seriously just do us all a favor and quit now tool

  557. Jon September 17th, 2009 at 10:46 pm

    Best of luck in Boston. It was a real pleasure for all of us here in NY to follow you, and I imagine the Sox fans are in for a treat. Don’t forget that the NY Times owns the Globe, so maybe we’ll see you back here eventually.

  558. Screw-the-Stache September 17th, 2009 at 10:47 pm

    ” you pick up Heidi Watney.”

    A definite upgrade over Kim Jones (who should be doing football instead).

    But please spare us the “for my family” factor in Pete’s decision. It reminds me of Mike Hampton signing his mega-deal because of the “school system” in the area. Ridiculous.

    “It’s all about bucks, kid. The rest is conversation.” — Gordon Gekko

  559. Nick September 17th, 2009 at 10:48 pm

    Good riddance

  560. Bill G September 17th, 2009 at 10:50 pm

    It is a sad day for blogging. You offered great insight into the Yankee clubhouse and I hope you get a chance to blog for the globe in the same way and with the same freedom you had here. I would love to follow the blog you do for the Red Sox, especially when they play the Yankees. I wish you the best of luck and I hope you have a successful career of covering a losing team.(had to rip the sox at least once)

  561. Josh September 17th, 2009 at 10:53 pm

    I am crushed. You were the first thing I read in the morning and probably the last thing at night. Your wit and observations and research have been outstanding. Thanks for all your work and best of luck and let’s hope 80 years from now Sox fans will be talking about the Curse of Abraham. I will definitely be checking out your Boston blog for news about the enemy. Happy trails !!!

  562. Wilson Betemit September 17th, 2009 at 10:54 pm

    By itself, being closer to your parents is a good enough reason to take the new job. Getting a better position makes it a no-brainer. Good luck

  563. kate September 17th, 2009 at 10:54 pm

    Pete- I read your blog all the time and I’m really going to miss it! Good luck in Boston, we are really going to miss you and your great input here in New York! I read your blog everyday and really wish you were staying for the play offs!! best wishes and thanks again for all the great reads! I’m happy for you yet pretty bummed at the same time! Boston is lucky to have you

  564. Screw-the-Stache September 17th, 2009 at 10:55 pm

    “If you have nothing good to say, then don’t say anything.”

    Are you kidding?

    Here’s something for you to learn:
    If Pete followed your silly dictum himself, his blog would never have gotten the volume of posts it did. Pete loves to stir the pot with some inflammatory remark that he doesn’t believe himself; then, he steps back and watches as the fur flies and posts increase. If made positive statements only — resulting in a boring low-hit blog, he’d never have gotten an offer from the Boston Globe. So, wake up.

  565. AAC September 17th, 2009 at 10:55 pm

    Best of luck in your new place, and thanks for the dedication. I moved to Australia for work and your blog very quickly became my primary site for all Yankee news because of the quality and quantity of information and because of the large number of informed comments from (certain) readers. I can only hope your successor does half as good a job.

  566. Yankee Bloodline September 17th, 2009 at 10:57 pm

    Congrats Pete, you qualify as a true to life loser. Have fun up in retread country with all of the other Sux fans. You have zero value as a credible journalist on this board, and should be dismissed immediately to go cover your beloved Red Sox. Oh yeah good luck fitting your fat rear end in the press box at Fenway Paak. Loser.

    Yankee to the end, bury me in Pinstripes F**k Boston, their fans, and their writer’s. AMEN!

  567. Robert Ryan September 17th, 2009 at 10:57 pm

    Pete:

    You set the bar high and you will be sorely missed. Where am I going to get news on The Boss?

  568. YankeeDiva September 17th, 2009 at 10:58 pm

    We didn’t see eye to eye on somethings but I wish you the best in your new adventures (especially since you have the sox on a regular basis :)

  569. Big O September 17th, 2009 at 10:59 pm

    Wow Pete, as an out of town (Denver) Yankees fan, this was a great place to understand what’s really going on with the team. No rah, rah crap and no panicky crap. You understand the game and the team. You will be SORELY missed! Good luck at the new gig. I hate the Sawx, but will always respect your work.

    Much Thanks!

  570. Jim September 17th, 2009 at 11:00 pm

    Thanks for everything, Pete. I am a relative latecomer to the blog, but I have really enjoyed reading it. Since finding this blog, I tune in several times a day to see what new pieces of info you have to share. Good luck to you, and thanks for making this fun.

    I can’t believe you are going to cover the Sox…

  571. tennore September 17th, 2009 at 11:00 pm

    From a sometime participant but every post reader, I have to say I have enjoyed the excellent coverage you have provided to us diehards. You are a real pro and we will miss your work and the Bruce updates! Hey I guess if Coney could pitch for the Sox you can blog for them. And I will even clue in my friends who are Sox fans and I might even check in every now and then to see if you are being a complete turncoat (I kid)!

  572. Yankee Bloodline September 17th, 2009 at 11:01 pm

    “Maybe someday I’ll be back covering the Yankees.”

    Just take your money, put on your Sox cap, and shut the hell up.

  573. YankeesLuv September 17th, 2009 at 11:02 pm

    Hello Peter,

    Sad to see ya go buddy. I’ve enjoyed your blog for many years. The only thing I didn’t like was the A-rod bashing but I guess that will go over much better in Boston. I still wish you the best, god bless and much success. Thank you.

  574. chris September 17th, 2009 at 11:02 pm

    I’ve read almost every post for the past 2-3 years. This is the site I am ALWAYS on, checking up on the latest Yankees news.

    Thank you for everything you’ve given this site and its readers. It’s all been very much appreciated. We’ll miss you a lot.

    That being said: It really hurts that you’re going to Boston and will be giving the best coverage in Baseball to the Red Sox, after years of it being for the Yankees. Bah humbug.

  575. Frank from Norwalk September 17th, 2009 at 11:02 pm

    Pete, you are the best, this blog won’t be the same with out.. boy I aam gonna miss ya pal, Good Luck to you in the town of sports losers and cheaters (except you… of course)

  576. John In Boston September 17th, 2009 at 11:03 pm

    Yankees Suck

  577. Burnsy September 17th, 2009 at 11:03 pm

    The Boston Globe is a total rag. For any of you idiots out there who don’t realize it, it’s owned by the NYTimes, which is going the way of the dodo soon.

    Go home pete, you won’t be missed. Hopefully the people who go to this blog can find something more constructive to do with their time. You’ve proven to be a biased and bloated bloviator, and I don’t think anyone is surprised to see you go cover the Red Sox. After all, at a NYTimes subsidiary, you don’t really need to check your sources or factcheck anything, right?

    You’ll fit right in with all the low-brow slime in beantown.

  578. EricNS September 17th, 2009 at 11:03 pm

    Congrats and good luck

  579. bob September 17th, 2009 at 11:05 pm

    good luck!

    thanks for all the hard work!

    but seriously — go yanks!!! :)

    i hope you are still pulling for swisher!

  580. Peterc615 September 17th, 2009 at 11:05 pm

    Best of luck to you Pete, I have really enjoyed reading your blog and will let the half of my family who are Red Sox fans know about you going to the Globe and to look out for your blog there.

  581. melky gardner September 17th, 2009 at 11:06 pm

    Oh my, this will take a while to get over. This is not only one of the great baseball, or even sports blogs – its one of the best blogs our there, period.

    Pete, you will be sorely missed. The Sox have made out like bandits in this deal.

  582. Drew September 17th, 2009 at 11:08 pm

    Hey Pete, good for you! Nice to be near the family…you’re going to play on the Boston writer’s team now though..Kepner might have to buzz you.

  583. tterba September 17th, 2009 at 11:09 pm

    Gonna miss this Pete… Look foward to it everyday … GOOD LUCK ! Hopefully the Sawk will really stink

  584. AJW September 17th, 2009 at 11:10 pm

    Pete congratulations on your new position. It was an honor to chat with you briefly at the blog outing in Scranton late last month. I was talking to you about your boy Tom Brady and other NFL news. You will be missed around here and I hope your replacement lives up to tremendous coverage you have given us these past years of our team. I will miss the comedy as well. I wish you the best of luck and GO JETS!!!!!! LOL. Take care.

  585. Boston Dave September 17th, 2009 at 11:11 pm

    If you thought Pete was anti A-Rod before…

    I suppose this is his dream job… covering the Sawx.

    Congrats Pete.

    Personally, I will never cheer anyone for leaving the Yanks for the Sox. But I understand the move and wish you well.

  586. 89 September 17th, 2009 at 11:13 pm

    Oh no! SO this is how the Sox retaliated for the Yankees stealing Texiera away last winter…

    Totally understandable move. If the Red Sox offered me a front office job tomorrow, would I take it? I’d certainly have to think about it.

    You’re the best — I’ve suggested your blog to just about every fan I know, and this site has been on my top 5 Favorites for years now.

    Best of luck, and now I can count on some decent coverage of the Sox from you. Your ascent from writer/blogger with a few loyal fans to a national name showing up on ESPN has been fun to watch… I’m always a little proud to see your name on TV.

    I hope your replacement is chosen wisely..

  587. Yankster September 17th, 2009 at 11:14 pm

    Thank you for all the hard work. Your blog has been the first I turned to for breaking news on the Yanks, and I don’t think anyone will be able to fill your shoes. Damn those sucks. Good luck.

  588. tessa September 17th, 2009 at 11:19 pm

    I’m not much of a regular poster, but I am certainly a regular reader. Thanks for your knowledge, and for your sensitivity to the fact that the thing that you have that we fans do not is access, and the corresponding attempts to pull back the curtain for us and give us a little bit of that access.

    I think that the perspective you have provided has been my favorite thing. I have appreciated the many times that you have brought a logical, balanced perspective to those fans who lose their heads in May because of a losing streak or injury.

    Moving to be near your family is a reason that no other reason can beat. I sincerely hope that Boston treats you well. Heaven knows you’ll have job security, as talking Red Sox fans down from the ledge is a 12-months-a-year sort of job.

    All the best.

  589. Rick P September 17th, 2009 at 11:23 pm

    Wow, I had no idea that news like this would affect me so. It was when I realized that I have been checking this site a couple times a day. I have never met you, but it feels like I am losing a friend. Thank you for the seemingly tireless coverage of my team. I will miss your thoughts and words. It was great fun to read your blog, and was a small bright spot to my day. I wish you the best of luck in your new endeavor, and feel that we Yankee fans will see you sometime in the future, maybe on an even bigger stage. All good things must come to an end, but we can look back and appreciate how nice it was.

    Good Luck and Congratulations

  590. tessa September 17th, 2009 at 11:24 pm

    Also, I sure hope that the Boston Globe is ready for a lot of Yankee fans to be pretty vocal on whatever blog you set up there. I mean, you’ve gotta follow your guy, right? Plus, watching the Sox fans implode and getting to see your reporting on it? Good times.

  591. Corey September 17th, 2009 at 11:26 pm

    Good luck Pete. I have to say I will miss you blogging about the Yankees and covering them the way you do. I hope they pick someone worthy to replace you and they continue with this blog.

  592. Pat September 17th, 2009 at 11:26 pm

    Pete,

    You leave large shoes to fill. I began reading this blog about 1 year ago. In that time you have made being a Yankee fan even more fun than it already was. I think you’ve done stellar work here. While it saddens me to hear that you’re going to the Globe, it is easy to see why the move makes sense. Best of luck to you.

  593. yoyo September 17th, 2009 at 11:29 pm

    hey Pete this is the first post that i have ever posted truth is on any blog for that matter how ever for the past couple of years basiclly every day a least twice a day I have checked the blog I really can’t imagine what life would be with out this blog Thanks so much for these past couple of years Wish you would continue The best of luck

  594. Rob L. September 17th, 2009 at 11:29 pm

    This is certainly sad news for the blog Pete. Good luck in Beantown. Our loss is Bostons gain. I only hope the blog doesn’t go downhill like the Rangers blog did when Sam Weinman left.

  595. Jeff Levy September 17th, 2009 at 11:30 pm

    Good luck in Boston Pete. You will bring an interesting perspective seeing the rivalry from both sides.

  596. Crosetti September 17th, 2009 at 11:31 pm

    Pete, you going to Boston makes your readers feel like the Red Sox fans when Johnny Damon left Boston to come to the Yankees. And I especially remember that sign of one fan in Boston: “Shame of you, Johnny DEMON. You lost your soul!” The best for you Pete, enjoy your new job, your family and the money.

  597. mike September 17th, 2009 at 11:31 pm

    WHile I’m a huge red sox fan and will be happy to have you blogging with amalie, nick, tony and the rest of the staff at the globe… WHO will I turn to get my inside news on the yanks?

  598. vb03 September 17th, 2009 at 11:31 pm

    Boston sucks, but good luck Pete. You’ve done an excellent job here.

  599. Shew September 17th, 2009 at 11:32 pm

    Sorry that you are at that baby boomer junction with us- parents retired. Getting old. Need us kids there. but, it is the right decision Pete, as much as it hurts me to lose you daily (X5!)
    I think now of your man, The Boss: Take a good look around. This is your Hometown….
    Good luck Pete. Love ya like a brother…

  600. hammel September 17th, 2009 at 11:38 pm

    WOW..Pete: Good for you brother…if it’s a great opportunity you have to take it. I will miss checking out LoHud Yanks every morning because we had the same sense of humor and you always cracked me up…especially when you were at random airports at 5am with no brekky. But seriously…your insight was really awesome and you will be missed. Growing up in the Bronx and living in the Baltimore area for the past 10 years or so, you helped fill in the gaps to feed my Yankee void. Thanks again for your great efforts…you are already missed!

  601. DB September 17th, 2009 at 11:41 pm

    I wish you all the best, Pete. May you scoop the big stories that pull the rug out from under the Sox. I won’t consider you a traitor, but an infiltrator for now.

    Seriously, this blog is all you. I don’t anticipate someone putting the time and dedication that you have given this wonderful site. We all know your heart is in Beantown and it is always great to be where your heart is. I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say you have been a great asset to the Yankees family. You deserve this.

  602. Eli September 17th, 2009 at 11:42 pm

    Thank you for consistently terrific Yankee coverage over the past few years. You will be missed (though I will enjoy the increased productivity that comes from not checking your blog 10 times a day)

  603. MTH September 17th, 2009 at 11:42 pm

    Best wishes, Pete!
    It won’t be as fun without you, but personal life is way more important than anything else. Good luck and have fun there!

  604. Matthew Cohen September 17th, 2009 at 11:43 pm

    This is a good move for you Pete but a sad day for the Yankees.

    I’m not sure how many people appreciate how many hours you put into the blog. The blog became somewhat about the Yankees, but also about the life of Peter Abraham, covering the Yankees. It was a truly unique media form and the best sports blog I have seen for its unique combination of humor, information, access and analysis.

    If the Yanks were smart, they’d slot some of their budget for Japanese starters into a fund to keep you here.

    Best of luck in Boston Pete. I hope that Red Sox fans appreciate you the way that we do. You deserve it.

  605. Keith September 17th, 2009 at 11:45 pm

    Thanks Pete … I just threw up in my mouth.

    In all honestly … best of luck to you. You deserve the best!

  606. Jon (yankfan212) September 17th, 2009 at 11:52 pm

    As like many others I regularly visit and rarely post but am happy to hear this although it is bitter sweet. I met you down in Tampa this spring and you seem like a down to earth guy just trying to live life. Good luck my friend.

    So what the crap happens to the blog? Just shuts down or will someone start doing it?

  607. Veras Must Go September 17th, 2009 at 11:56 pm

    Wow Pete, that is some hard hitting news. You are the best and will be missed. Good luck in Beantown.

  608. Dustin September 17th, 2009 at 11:56 pm

    Pete, I’m not a regular commenter, but I’ve been a regular reader for almost 2 years. I did once e-mail you, and you posted information I passed along here, which made me feel special.

    Literally no one covers the Yanks like you do. I read your blog and River Ave. Blues, but I don’t read the latter for their writing (which isn’t all that great), but more for the statistical analysis. I read your blog for the humor and the personal touch, the inside scoop on the players. I check in here incessantly, more than I check anything else except my e-mail, because you update so frequently, and almost everything you post I read voraciously and take as gospel.

    I suppose someone else will take over this blog, but it won’t have the same personality. It’ll literally leave a big hole in my Internet baseball consumption that I don’t think anyone else will ever replace. Boston fans are getting a real asset in 2 weeks. Lucky bastards.

  609. Mac Daddy September 17th, 2009 at 11:59 pm

    WOW…so many first time posters who only “lurked” and never posted til now…people, we may be rough and smack each other around but you dont have to be afraid to post…

  610. harrs44 September 18th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Well, ain’t this a kick in the pants.

    I’ve been a follower and big fan of your blog for a while, Pete. You’re one of the best out there. I figured it’d only be a matter of time before the big boys came calling.

    I hate to see you go, but when one of the biggest papers in the country wants you, it’s really a no-brainer. Best of luck in Beantown. We’ll miss you here.

    P.S. – Could your first question to Youk address why he looks like a dog trying to take a poop when he gets in his stance at the plate?

  611. lardin September 18th, 2009 at 12:01 am

    Pete, Gonna miss you. Being a Yankees Fan wont be the same.

  612. Diane Firstman September 18th, 2009 at 12:02 am

    Pete: I’m really happy for you …

    But, sigh … you will be missed. Your coverage of the Yanks was top-notch.

    Here’s hoping for the best two weeks of Yankeedom to come.

    Best of luck sir!

  613. Michael September 18th, 2009 at 12:02 am

    Thx Pete … Now your Arod jokes are really funny.

  614. JJNJ September 18th, 2009 at 12:03 am

    Wow, wasn’t expecting this! It would be an understatement to say I’m going to miss reading this blog & the tremendous amount of insight and information you’ve given us through the years. I read the Globe online everyday so I look forward to your stories. Good luck & try to keep us updated on how you’re doing (maybe use your current Twitter as a personal account & make a new one for work?) Thanks again, Pete & take good care!

  615. Michael September 18th, 2009 at 12:03 am

    That came off harsh… Honestly thank you. Your blog was always worth a daily read.

  616. DADDY YANKEE September 18th, 2009 at 12:07 am

    it’s sad

  617. Linzar September 18th, 2009 at 12:13 am

    I’ve probably posted less than 5 times in the past couple yesrs I’ve been reading your blog, but am a loyal reader (as so many are). I’m in NS, Canada and it’s like Red Sox North up here since they are the closer mlb team distance-wise… your blog is the breath of fresh air that I look forward to each night when I get home from work (the site is blocked at work – grrr!).

    Your site kept a sense of normalcy in my life when I lost my dad to cancer last summer – I’ll be forever greatful for that… just to have those few hours each night where I could sit back and forget about everything that was going on, and just enjoy baseball – as my dad would have wanted.

    I love your sense of humor and always get a kick out you calling people out in the comments section – I love the fact that there is a place where we can read an insiders candid thoughts about my favorite team, and that we’ve had the most dedicated blog-father that the internet has ever seen! As others have said, it truly will never be the same without you, Pete.

    You will be missed by so many – I was in a state of disbelief when I read your post, truly shocked… I had to read it a few times and then just stared blankly at the screen. But at the same time, I think that deep down we all knew this day would come. You are such a talented writer and your dedication is unreal – nobody deserves this more than you do, Pete.

    Enjoy the extra time with your family – it is such precious time that should be treasured. We will miss you, Pete – no one can cover the Yankees like you can. It’ll be different (to say the least) to see you in your new role – now I have to read about the Red Sox too :( Gross! Oh well – I know you’ll make it interesting :)

    Sorry for the random rambling, but I’m still in shock and really can’t even form words. Thanks again for all your hard work and everything that you’ve given us over the years – Christmas won’t be the same this year without your ‘Night Before Christmas’ story :(

    We love you, Pete!

  618. anonymous September 18th, 2009 at 12:19 am

    Good luck, Pete
    I hope Che-Hsuan Lin will be an everyday starter for RedSox in the future, so we can conture to see your high quality news on Taiwanese players

  619. Ed September 18th, 2009 at 12:20 am

    You know what really sucks?

    The Yanks finally get back to the World Series, and there will be NO blog.

    Couldn’t this have be done AFTER the WS??

  620. aaron empty September 18th, 2009 at 12:21 am

    wow….CONGRATS PETE! couldnt have happened to a better reporter. good luck with everything, but there will be a big hole in cyberspace when your gone!

  621. cardiganfox September 18th, 2009 at 12:21 am

    Oh gosh Pete, longtime lurker (since the almost very beginning)and sometimes poster here wishing you the best of luck and glad to see you are climbing the ladder in these hard times in your industry, I am going to miss your blogging a ton. Thanks for your excellence and congratulations, Boston is lucky to have you.

  622. Ed S. September 18th, 2009 at 12:24 am

    Congratulations Pete! You deserve it! We’ll miss you here though.

  623. lil' m September 18th, 2009 at 12:25 am

    Pete: Congratulations on your well-deserve step up in the sports journalism world. You’d be hard-pressed not to take the gig, and it’s wonderful that you’ll be back near your family. As a Yankee fan, I will miss your incomparable coverage, dedication and wit more than I can say. Whoever steps up to take your place will have some big shoes to fill. And the poster who said this is Bostonian revenge for the Yankees stealing Tex from right under their noses is correct lol. Guess I’ll have to start checking out the Boston Globe for something other than the occasional schadenfreude hit after a big Yanks victory over the hated enemy. Those Sox fans had better appreciate the awesomeness that is Pete Abe baseball coverage, because we sure do. All the best in the new gig – they’re lucky to have you.

  624. GMAN September 18th, 2009 at 12:28 am

    Pete,
    Your blog has been a real treat for an long time baseball fan. You’ve covered the Yanks during some interesting times that’s for sure…old Stadium, New Stadium…Old Steinbrenner, New Steinbrenners…

    I enjoy your writinng style and encourage you to write a novel.

    Best of Luck in Bean Town…enjoy your family…those relationships are precious and you can’t get back the years you are absent. Enjoy every minute and keep on…Keepin’ On!

  625. GMAN September 18th, 2009 at 12:29 am

    PS – hopefully your new blog will have an edit button or spell check!!!

  626. hey kelvin September 18th, 2009 at 12:30 am

    Wow pete I didn’t think this would ever affect me but it did. I’ve enjoyed this blog for so long and literally started posting this year. I am so saddened I really wish this was not true its like this blog is part of my life.

    I literally read it everyday before I sleep and after I wake up.

    Truely wish you the best pete. I’m so sad and shocked.

  627. JNS September 18th, 2009 at 12:35 am

    As #10 would have said Holy Cow!! What a stunner! It will be difficult to see you go. But obviously a tremendous opportunity for you. Good luck – it’s too bad one of the major dailies here did not have the sense to pick you up.

  628. Dan from Mass September 18th, 2009 at 12:36 am

    It’s terrible to lose what Pete has done such a great job of creating. But for me, I’ll miss the comments of CB and SJ as much as Pete – you guys helped me appreciate a sport I love that much more. CB, that was a classy goodbye, and thanks for all the insight on pitching!

  629. Bostonian September 18th, 2009 at 12:38 am

    Smart move. Come on over to the winning side.

    Will you be doing a daily (seemingly hourly) blog for the Sox, too? That would be great. Not sure what to make my first stop for Evil Empire news now…

  630. Yeah September 18th, 2009 at 12:48 am

    I haven’t always agreed with you, PA, and sometimes I’ve even found you highly irritating. However, you’ve kept up one heck of a blog, for which Yankee fans are much in your debt. You should be very proud of yourself.

    Best of luck in Boston.

  631. Danny T September 18th, 2009 at 1:01 am

    Thanks for the great reporting, and the unbelievable service your blog has been to Yankee fans. Best of luck, Pete.

  632. El duque September 18th, 2009 at 1:04 am

    What will happen next …

    First thing to do in the morning was reading your BLOG!

    Only my Girlfriend is happy! (She ´s a Red SOX)

    I made her promise to follow your amazing blog!

    But I still hope it´s all a bad dream!

  633. El duque September 18th, 2009 at 1:05 am

    That´s the best TRADE the REd Sox have done! EVER

  634. Matt Hanna September 18th, 2009 at 1:15 am

    Pete:

    I read everyday…I emailed you once and you emailed me back within an hour. Your adaptability to the changing landscape of news delivery has been incredible…blog, facebook, twitter…you are on it. If the newspaper biz is going to survive it’ll be because of guys like you.

    Most of the time, us Yankee fans are on the winning end of these types of negotiations…so we should reluctantly, begrudgingly, and respectfully accept that The Globe went the extra distance to get the best guy for the job. Good for them.

    Hopefully, someone sends this off to the NYT and your stint in Boston last as long as the Sox’s reign at the top of the division.

    Best of luck…keep those nuts in Boston honest!

  635. Daniel Love Glazer September 18th, 2009 at 1:24 am

    Pete, to all the positive and heart-felt comments on your move, I can say only Ditto. Your blog has become part of my daily routine and that of many others. Best of luck.

  636. Yanksgal September 18th, 2009 at 1:29 am

    Jeez, this is bad news. In the parlance of the NY sports fans, first time long time and this is a sad blow. Wishing you good luck covering the Sox and moving up the ladder to the Globe.

    Yanksgal

  637. igotid88 September 18th, 2009 at 1:31 am

    Aw that sucks

  638. Frank Marco September 18th, 2009 at 1:41 am

    Pete, I’ve been a loyal reader for the past few years. Since you opened up the blog really…I am really sorry to see you go man.

    This is the saddest thing that has happened to me lately, (that’s probably a good thing) but I still hate to hear the news man. Good luck working with the Globe. You have a wonderful talent for writing. Don’t lose your NY sarcasm. and please don’t pronounce the word car like “kaaaa”!

  639. Orlando Chris September 18th, 2009 at 1:50 am

    Wow. Just… wow.

    Best of luck – I know that you don’t need it. You’ll do a great job.

  640. J.O. September 18th, 2009 at 1:53 am

    I’ve been reading this blog for about 2 or 3 seasons. I rarely post anything, but I read every single post. I just wanted to say thanks for the great coverage over the past few years. I am disappointed, but your choice makes sense, 100%. I am hoping that someone takes over the blog, and runs in with half as much commitment as you do. Good luck in Boston. Go yanks!

  641. J.O. September 18th, 2009 at 1:55 am

    P.S.-I felt like I could see this coming. You were getting way too good for such a small newspaper to keep.

  642. Patrick September 18th, 2009 at 1:58 am

    This sucks!

  643. Mr. Goodkat September 18th, 2009 at 2:00 am

    I don’t think you’re a traitor. After all, I think you made the right business move, but I do feel betrayed. Anytime someone goes from NY to Boston, it stings.

    It was truly special reading your blog this year, and I have a feeling this could be a special year for the Yankees. Your insights sometimes were simply top-notched. You will be missed. I wish someone would wake me up from this bad dream and tell me you’re still running this blog. It’s been real Pete. Good luck to you, but not the new team to which your allegiance lies.

  644. pancake September 18th, 2009 at 2:07 am

    Pete,
    I am one of your loyal readers in Taiwan.
    I almost check this blog everyday and love your articles.
    You are the most famous foreign sport journalist in Taiwan.It has already some reports about your job-changing on Taiwan’s newspaper.I just come here to show my support to you.It’s an amazing blog and I am going to miss you ^^
    Thank you and good luck!

  645. bennyBK September 18th, 2009 at 2:28 am

    pete,

    i cant say im not disappointed. actually, crushed is a better word for it. i have been reading you since youve started, i remember seeing u on river ave b4 the hr derby last yr…and screaming your name like u are a rockstar…which you are…those pathetic ppl in boston have no idea about the treat that they are about to get in you…thanks for everything…seriously tho get chad jennings to take over…he is where its at..ill be reading ur new blog…i know deep down uve been rootin for the yanks…or at least hating the red sox…as much as youll deny it..be well pete abe

  646. J.R. September 18th, 2009 at 2:30 am

    I am happy for you but man…this really blows. The Sox??? Ugh. Well best of luck to you in all your future endeavors.

    P.S. – It’s been an absolute pleasure reading your blog every day.

  647. Sean Ryan September 18th, 2009 at 2:37 am

    For God sake, the Post or the Daily News couldn’t hire you?!?!!!!

  648. Sean Ryan September 18th, 2009 at 2:39 am

    Is this pay back for Teixeira? I never thought I could hate Boston any more…. ugh

  649. James September 18th, 2009 at 2:50 am

    Great, just what Boston needs, another crabby writer… :)

    In all seriousness, it’s been awesome reading your writing for the Yankees. Best of luck to you!

  650. Matt K September 18th, 2009 at 2:57 am

    Thanks for everything and Congrats.

    So I guess you won’t be around for the post season which is disappointing.

  651. maav September 18th, 2009 at 3:09 am

    You did a great job, sad to see you leave Pete. I remember years ago as a young man with the military finding a home with this blog when I was in the field and could only check the internet for a few minuets. I will miss it, but like most true Yanks fans, I will not follow you to New England. Not a chance. Best of luck. I didn’t comment, but was I was a regular reader, almost to an unhealthy point.

  652. RMNY September 18th, 2009 at 3:11 am

    Been a reader to your blog for a while now, but never really posted anything… I guess they have to take you away to get revenge on the Teix signing during last winter. Anyways, good luck with everything and the Yankee fans will miss you.

  653. Dino September 18th, 2009 at 3:14 am

    good luck Pete, and I mean that babe

    if only some of these numbnuts knew what today’s newspaper business is like

    enjoy every dinner with your parents,
    time with them is invaluable

    and get yourself a new england chick with a funny accent who appreciates Springsteen too.
    getting your dream job aint jack if you cant share the joy.
    find the time,you know its ticking away

    will look forward to reading your new blog,
    when you’re covering the Yanks again during the world series.
    the BG will have you covering the Yankee Dodger WS right? :)

    stay hard, stay hungry, stay alive

  654. Shirley September 18th, 2009 at 3:35 am

    Wow, this is too shocking for me! Reading this blog has become part of my daily routine. It’s just hard to imagine watching the Yankees games without this blog. I am going to really, really miss this blog! Thank you, Pete and congratulations on your new job!

  655. David September 18th, 2009 at 3:40 am

    Good luck, Pete. As a regular reader and infrequent commenter, I want to thank you for running this blog/

  656. Johnny D. September 18th, 2009 at 3:42 am

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

    Enjoy your new job and thanks for everything. This blog has been a great source of knowledge.

  657. Ned in Alaska September 18th, 2009 at 4:07 am

    Oh my.

    This upsets my routine.

    I read every word you write on this blog, Pete, and you have made it into an art form.

    Oh my.

    Congrats on the new opportunity. You have taken this medium and elevated it, and I’ll miss the hell out of you.

  658. Hugh Stacks September 18th, 2009 at 4:10 am

    Like a lot of others I’m a long time reader/very infrequent poster. I would like to thank you very much from the bottom of my heart for the years of very exclusive and very in-depth coverage that you have provided. You were part of a revolution of sports coverage that I truly think will take a much more mainstream focus in the years to come. You should be proud of what you have done here and appreciate the career opportunities that it has opened for you because you undoubtedly deserve them. Good luck with your future endeavours Mr. Abraham, even if it is with an arch-rival.

  659. Andrea C September 18th, 2009 at 4:19 am

    You’ve been the first person I read in the morning and the last before I turn off the light. There are going to be some pretty sleepless nights in my Yankees Universe. I wish your leaving for (Ugh) the Globe was just a bad dream…but best of luck and may you return to the Big Apple in no time flat.

  660. Greg L September 18th, 2009 at 5:02 am

    Pete, I’ve rarely posted but have followed this blog daily from Boone, NC for the last two years or so. I will truly miss the excellent information you provide about the Yankees. I’ll also miss your great sense of humor, and I’ll miss not knowing what’s on your iPod! Congratulations and best wishes always.

  661. JETER2YANKS September 18th, 2009 at 5:05 am

    Good for you Pete. Good luck finally your going back to your first love the Bosox!!!

    http://metsforever.blogspot.com/

  662. TheCro September 18th, 2009 at 5:17 am

    Pete:

    Thanks for everything.

    You will be VERY sorely missed.

    Best of Luck to you – both personally and professionally – at The Globe.

    The Cro

  663. Kevin Page September 18th, 2009 at 5:38 am

    Wow, this blog is one of the main sites I always check when I’m on my computer every day, since it is updated so frequently.

    It’s also my news lifeline for the Yankees living here in Orlando, FL.

    Hopefully one of your fellow writers picks up the slack and knows what a huge void their is to fill.

  664. Sports Geek September 18th, 2009 at 5:48 am

    Wow PeteAbe!!! Congrats! We’re gonna miss you a ton!!

    I just wish that you could have you stay through the WS! We’ll just have to carry on without you.

    You probably already know everything you need to know about Boston. But, I’ll just add my two cents.

    Boston- “very liveable”: history + technology + geography +++
    Boston teams- usually as competitive as NY teams (almost).
    Boston fans- some say “the best, the most knowledgeable”. Of course NY fans know better.
    Boston Globe- a great paper!

    Again, congrats and all the best!!

    ((Personal suggestion- keep a copy -”Web page complete”- of your post with all comments. You’ll love re-reading it at some point in the future.))

  665. BH September 18th, 2009 at 6:19 am

    Pete,

    I have been following your blog since almost the begining and you will be sorely missed. I have been living out of the country for the last 20 months and one of the first things in the morning would be to read the NYTimes sports section (sorry but that’s my paper) and then check the blog. Good luck at the Globe. I am sure I’ll be checking out your blog up there once and awhile, at least to see what song is on the iPod.

    this is some of the worst news I’ve heard all year, a real loss for myself and fellow Yankee fans. good luck Pete, thanks for your great work over the years.

    …yet another reason to hate the red sox

    you got a mention on watchdog

    http://www.newsday.com/blogs/s.....-1.1458025

    Epic news in the local sports blogosphere:

    Pete Abraham, a pioneer of beat writer blogging and a profoundly prolific producer of Yankees-related posts, is leaving The Journal News for a job covering the Bosox for the Boston Globe.

    The Journal News recently went through a round of job-shedding that included the departures of its Giants and Jets beat writers, Ernie Palladino and Jane McManus.

    Good luck to Mr. Abraham, one of the true blogging greats.

    I didn’t read the blog yesterday cuz they were off, This so disappointing. You’re the best Pete . Good Luck back home and be careful those sox players are jerks and computer thieves.

  672. Mike B September 18th, 2009 at 7:12 am

    STABBED IN THE HEART. Pete you did a great job so I hate to see you go. Hey Journal News, how about hiring a Yanks fan for the replacement? Are they really that hard to find?

  673. jzappola September 18th, 2009 at 7:13 am

    Good luck Pete, you,ve made my NJ Transit train commute that much shorter since I found this blog last December. Smart move.

  674. Scott September 18th, 2009 at 7:28 am

    All the best Pete! You have been great to read. We’ll miss you. Good luck up in Boston.

  675. rachelscott September 18th, 2009 at 7:37 am

    Best of luck at the new job! Thanks for the great info and entertainment. We’ll follow along on your journey!

  676. Stephen September 18th, 2009 at 7:45 am

    Congrats Pete,

    Three questions:
    Which Yankee blog do you recommend?
    Are you a yankee fan or is it just for work? ;)
    Will you blog for Boston?

    Thanks for the great work with this blog!
    You’ll be missed.

  677. Jefe 22 September 18th, 2009 at 7:48 am

    Absolutely crushed me hearing this news yesterday! This is the number one yankees blog out there and as sad as it is that you’re leaving, I think we can all respect the move as it is the best for you. Best of luck and hopefully we’ll be hearing more from you soon.

  678. Brian Harvey September 18th, 2009 at 7:48 am

    Sorry to see you go. This was the first Yanks blog I subscribed to and has been one of my favorites. Good luck at the globe, although they aren’t doing too well themselves either, at least you have a spot in their plan for intarwebs.

    RiverAveBlues.com is a good yankees blog btw…Supported by YES Network..and if you don’t know, well now you know

  679. gmfeld September 18th, 2009 at 7:50 am

    Well, this is quite a blow. This blog has become my daily comfort for all things Yankees talk. Congrats to you Pete. I guess on the bright side, as a Yankees fan living in Boston, I’ll get to introduce your great work to all my Red Sox friends here (they don’t deserve you). But really, covering the Sox? Ugh. A hard pill to swallow.

  680. Larry September 18th, 2009 at 7:55 am

    Et tu, Brute?

  681. Jimmy September 18th, 2009 at 7:57 am

    Sad to hear you are leaving. Good luck in Boston. Since I live in Worcester I look forward to reading you in the Globe.

  682. Groundhoggator September 18th, 2009 at 7:59 am

    Thanks Pete for making the last several years fun and easy to get my daily dosage of the Yankees…although I can’t see why the Globe wouldn’t need a Yankees beat writer to give the “spy insight”… All the best and thanks.

    Meanwhile… anyway you can recommend Chad Jennings from SWB as the successor to the blog??

  683. scooter10 September 18th, 2009 at 8:02 am

    Thank you for your dedicated effort to the blog and its readers. I hope the Journal News finds someone who maitain and continue to enhance the blog’s visibility. Best of luck on your new endeavors. Cheers, mate.

  684. pavano's rear September 18th, 2009 at 8:13 am

    Hopefully this is the last time we lose to boston this year. Great blog and amazing dedication to the fans, you will be greatly missed. I am not a regular poster but I was an avid reader and really enjoyed your work.

    Thanks again and best of luck!

  685. joemorr8 September 18th, 2009 at 8:18 am

    Best of luck Pete, I hate to see you go. I’m a Yankees fan living in Boston and this is by far the best place to get a feel for what the team is doing. Isn’t the Globe on the verge of shutting its doors???

  686. BMB September 18th, 2009 at 8:19 am

    For me, I’m sad. For you, I’m happy.

    Congratulations and best of luck in beantown. You’re better than the Sox deserve! ;)

  687. Jay F. September 18th, 2009 at 8:21 am

    This is my 1st post… So, first, Congratulations! In the world of newspapers, certainly you are making a leap you could not ignore and the Boston Globe & Red Sox Nation are richer for your decision today.

    Myself, I am incredibly disappointed. Since my daughter was born a year & half ago I can not follow the Yankees quite like a used to, after 30 years of religious reading and watching, I felt disconnected, though my commitment to the team has not wavered.

    Then I found your blog this past May and was able to reconnect to the team again. Every afternoon through the night I check your blog on my blackberry, constantly reading your updates… I feel as though I am in the locker room with the club. You have provided insight like no other.

    Links, stories, quotes. Little tidbits no one else had – or before any one else. When the tarp is coming off the field. The feel of the game.

    For all of this I am extremely grateful & thank you @peteabe! I wish you the best of luck!

    However – you are abandoning us at the end of the regular season it appears? No coverage for playoffs? We lose you to the arch rival during a magical year and may even face you in the ALCS? The irony of it all.

    I feel the wires being pulled as we speak. Does any one know how to replace the great @Peteabe?

    @Peteabe – please inform us of your new blog at the Boston Globe – I want your insight during the ALCS – I want to hear the tears of Red Sox Nation as only you could capture them… My best to you friend.

  688. KennyH123 September 18th, 2009 at 8:23 am

    The blog was excellent. Good luck in Boston.

  689. Brian September 18th, 2009 at 8:23 am

    Pete I don’t usually comment, but I just wanted to thank you for your hard work and wish you luck up in Boston. This was the first season following your blog and I am a better fan because of it. Being close to your family is way more important than which baseball team you cover. I just hope lohud is able to find a replacement that will do even half as good a job as you did. Good luck

  690. UKYankee September 18th, 2009 at 8:23 am

    Congratulations Pete!
    we’ll miss you….even your Arod vitriol. But mainly your insight, dedication and love of sports.
    I think the Sports blogging community and baseball beatwriters owe you a beer or two for revolutionising the way us crazed fans read and interact about sports.

    thankyou! Goodluck!

    oh…sorry you’ve missed the opportunity of ever covering a World Series Champoinship!!

  691. JOHN September 18th, 2009 at 8:25 am

    I can’t believe this will be my first and only post on your forum, Pete. Your site has been a staple for me to visit daily for a few years. Your inside information and dedication have been top notch. I wish you well on your next endeavor. Family should come first, and deep down I’m sure you know you are making the right choice.

    Good luck! You will surely be missed.

  692. rbj September 18th, 2009 at 8:25 am

    Best of luck Peter, and thanks for the blogging.

  693. Taylor September 18th, 2009 at 8:25 am

    Traitorous.

  694. Bill Porter September 18th, 2009 at 8:26 am

    Here’s a vote for Sam Borden to take over if he wants the job. He was great at the other place (I won’t mention names) and does a great job filing in for Pete.

    I hope Sam wants it and that he gets it.

    Again, congratulations Pete and all the best to you.

  695. pinetar September 18th, 2009 at 8:34 am

    Congratulations, but I can’t lie…I feel duped into thinking you were a Yankee fan. I feel like the Sox fans must have felt when Damon went to the Yankees.

  696. kopac77 September 18th, 2009 at 8:34 am

    Pete I wisjh you the best of luck, but you know how the old adage in baseball, love the uniform, not the person in it…

    well, you are now a Red Sox writer, so I don’t have to tell you what that makes you

    Good luck, but you’re now playing for the enemy…

  697. Yankee fan in TW September 18th, 2009 at 8:35 am

    I cant believe your leaving :(
    Even Taiwan’s yahoo has this news
    You are the most well-known journalist from U.S.A in Taiwan

  698. Robert Blum September 18th, 2009 at 8:35 am

    Well, for selfish reasons, I’m a bit bummed out! Congratulations, Pete! I knew in this age of moving to electronic media that some smart paper would eventually make you an offer you couldn’t refuse – and you deserve it. I’ll keep an eye on your new blog, and hope someone can do half the job you did on the Yankees.

    Bob in Syracuse

  699. Don Capone September 18th, 2009 at 8:35 am

    Good luck, Pete. You’ve made the right decision. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again—I think this blog is the best blog in the history of the internet. I hope you have much success in Boston with The Globe, and enjoy being close you your family.

    Don

  700. Mike in CT September 18th, 2009 at 8:35 am

    Who the heck are we supposed to get our yankee news now from Pete? Mike Lupica? Jesus Christ. Is someone going to be taking over the blog? What else am i supposed to do at work all day. And to the Red Sox? Are you sure you dont want to punch Derek Jeter in the face on your way out also just to make it worse?

  701. Greg September 18th, 2009 at 8:43 am

    Enjoyed reading your blog every day to get my Yankees fix. You are in touch with the fans and very knowledgeable about the game and the team, and while I am not happy to hear you are switching to the dark side, there are some things more important in life than baseball (really did I just say that?). Thank you and best of luck!

  702. Sean September 18th, 2009 at 8:46 am

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  703. Kathy in Rochester September 18th, 2009 at 8:52 am

    um Pete…. THE FREAKING BOSTON GLOBE – THE FREAKING RED SOX????? Plunging a knife in my heart on a friday?! Even if they get a replacement, who can be as witty as you? You make me laugh. Well I will stop whining….. and wish you the best. But the Red Sox? just dont become one of those god-awful frat boy fans ok? :) you will be missed.

    love ya

  704. daled September 18th, 2009 at 8:56 am

    I remember when Tex was going to be a Red Sox
    I have faith in Cashman

    TRAITOR TRAITOR TRAITOR

  706. JOE ...NH September 18th, 2009 at 8:57 am

    Sorry but if totally true then YOU SUCK! No hard feelings but the Sox? What next you gonna start chanting Yankees Suck too?
    Total BS trying to make it as if “We do not root for a particular team” makes it right. Should of known w/ you being a PATS FAN…good luck…….

  707. Fan Since 57 September 18th, 2009 at 8:58 am

    Pete,

    As sad day for Yankees fans.
    You wit & insights will certainly be missed.

    Continued success in your new adventure…

  708. Ryan Loghry September 18th, 2009 at 8:58 am

    I wish you the best of luck Pete. I hope this blog will continue on at the same level of excellence without you. I know it won’t be the same, but I hope it will fill our continuous need for Yankee news. I’ll miss the little insights into spring training, and what it’s like to be around the team.

  709. Amy September 18th, 2009 at 9:01 am

    Pete,

    A friend of mine just shared that you are heading to Boston. As a lifelong Sox fan, I will tell you this – we are loyal as the day is long. I know the same can be said for Yankees fans.

    I can only speak for myself but I look forward to following your blog about my team! NY’s loss is our gain!

    Cheers,
    Amy in NJ

  710. Barbara (The Other Person) September 18th, 2009 at 9:02 am

    Hate to see you go, but happy to have followed your blog and had the opportunity to meet you in person at the Blog Outing. Glad our picture together was taken! The Globe is lucky to have you and your folks will be happy that you’ll be nearby. Deep down inside…..I believe you’re a Yankee fan. Good luck Pete……Bad luck Red Sox!!!
    Love,
    Barbara

  711. Tony September 18th, 2009 at 9:03 am

    A huge loss for us. You’re a great journalist and an you’ve run the best Yankee blog on the web. Good luck with everything.

  712. jason September 18th, 2009 at 9:03 am

    Best of luck Pete. It’s always nice to go home. Be careful when Tyler Keener comes high and tight in the annual beat writers game.

  713. Eric in Boston September 18th, 2009 at 9:03 am

    Pete -

    Congrats on the new job – you certainly deserve it. As a Yankee fan in Boston, its going to be strange to read your “voice” and not have it attached to the Yankees – my friends here don’t know how lucky they are about to be. One quick story – my brother lived in Afghanistan for a year doing development work. When he would call home, instead of talking about how we were doing or what things were like over there, we almost always started with “Did you see _______ on Pete’s blog?” It was great to be able to talk about the Yankees, and your writing, and momentarily forget about him being in a far away and dangerous place. Thanks again for everything, and best of luck.

  714. Rob September 18th, 2009 at 9:04 am

    Pete –

    Long-time reader, seldom commenter. It’s been a pleasure reading your blog and I will truly miss the insight and humor you bring to the job. Best of luck covering those other guys.

    Rob

  715. Steven S September 18th, 2009 at 9:05 am

    Wow. Unexpected, and I’m at a loss for words. However, I’m very excited for you. Career and family-wise this a strong move, but I feel like I’ve woken up to find something horrible had happened to the team. You’ve been integral to so many fans unbridled fanatisism, so it is a sad day for the team. Especially in the midst of a special season.

    I will certainly check in from time to time at your new space (not as a troll) as we’ll miss your humor, insight and blogging dedication. I’m certain my company will be thrilled with the lost hours of time they’ll recover by my constant refreshing of your blog, but I can only wish you the best of luck on your move to Beantown. It is a shame you won’t have a chance to blog during the WS this year though.

    Take care, you will be missed!

    SMS

  716. DSFenkel September 18th, 2009 at 9:08 am

    No brainer for you, Pete, but you will be missed by all Yankee fans. Good luck. Have a wicked time in you new job.

  717. Huggy Bear September 18th, 2009 at 9:18 am

    I wish you luck and hope you can somehow remain as unbiased as you say you are. You will be greatly missed………..Ny the way if somehow the Red Sox get better we WILL blame it on you.

  718. Barrows September 18th, 2009 at 9:19 am

    I know I said this VIA twitter, but best of luck to you Pete. I think you know we all appreciate the hard work you put in and the time you took out of your busy schedule to actually meet with us in Scranton the past two years.

    You will be missed. As much as it’s been said, I have to say it again…congrats and best wishes.

  719. Paul September 18th, 2009 at 9:22 am

    Pete — Thanks & best wishes for a happy and successful tour of duty in Boston. You’ve done a great job keeping fans posted on what’s going on and providing thoughtful analysis and you come across as a class act and a good guy. You’re wise to stay as close to your parents as you can — may you have many happy years together. Best wishes. Paul.

  720. beef September 18th, 2009 at 9:24 am

    Good luck Pete, you did a great job and I always new where to go for my Yankee news. best of luck.

  721. Jon September 18th, 2009 at 9:27 am

    Good for Pete, bad for us. They better get somebody good to replace you here.
    The other Yankee beat writer blogs absolutely blow!! Nothing but one jack ass opinion after another. The great thing about this blog is the focus being more on the news of the yankees, and less on some idiots irrelevant opinion.
    I may check those other blogs once a month, where I’m on this blog at least once a day.

    Anyway, congratulations Peter!

  722. David September 18th, 2009 at 9:29 am

    All the best of luck to you in your reverse Babe Ruth move.

  723. Juke Early September 18th, 2009 at 9:30 am

    I’d heard the newsstand copy of the Globe will become extinct in 2010, along with the NY Daily News, Miami Herald & 5 other major metro dailies. Online being the current format & one Pete has been extremely successful with, they are getting a proven winner. That said, here are the Top 5 Stories I hope he gets to file next season-

    5. Ted Williams secretly longed to be a NYY & wore Yankee logo boxers

    4. MIT will publish a Nobel Prize winning paper that Varitek is indeed a Cro Magnon

    3. Larry Lucchino & Theo Epstein are married to each other

    2. Every Red Sox player except Ted Williams & Dom DiMaggio has been juicing since 1919. They just didn’t get the good stuff until 2004

    1. The entrance to Hell is that door in the Green Monster Manny used. . ..

  724. Kevin September 18th, 2009 at 9:34 am

    Good riddens.

  725. Brian September 18th, 2009 at 9:35 am

    Pete, I have never posted but I’ve been checking the blog several times a day, during the season and in the off season, for about the last two years. You are my drug of choice, so this is a crushing blow. No one has matched your commitment, insights or wit. Do you really have to go before the playoffs, man!!!??? Come on!

    Hope to have you back in NY some day. Meantime, congratulations…you’ve got to put food on the table and I completely understand your decision.

    Best of luck, Pete. So sad to see you go…

  726. JW September 18th, 2009 at 9:37 am

    Ok so we are sending them Pete

    Include Joba and AJ

    We can take Clay and Josh Bard and a RTBN

    Congratulations Pete

    Hope Boston falls into another 80 yr curse

  727. Joe OD September 18th, 2009 at 9:37 am

    Good luck brother! It was a pleasure reading your daily insight…

  728. matt September 18th, 2009 at 9:39 am

    This is sad news for Yankee fans but great news for you. Good luck Peter.

  729. Adam from OR September 18th, 2009 at 9:40 am

    AH damn Pete, I look at this blog for up dates at least 10 times per day, a lot time I am hoping for a quick chuckle as a break from work. As a business owner I always want my employees to succeed and advance so good luck none of us want to hold you back, I do not think the Journal News has suffered such a big loss since I left as a paper boy in the ealry 80′s. Hopefully that gave you a laugh, I owe a couple of hundred.
    Best of luck dude , will miss you.
    Adam

    PS I believe this is my first post, that is how much your leaving sucks!

  730. Brittany September 18th, 2009 at 9:42 am

    This breaks my heart. But good for you, Pete. I just don’t know where I’ll get my Yankee news/commentary from now. I wish you could have stayed through October. best of luck-

  731. minnesota yankee fan September 18th, 2009 at 9:42 am

    Good luck Pete!

  732. tom A September 18th, 2009 at 9:44 am

    Thanks Pete and good luck. You will be missed!!

  733. Norman September 18th, 2009 at 9:45 am

    Ouch. It took this to get me to make my first post. Pete, I discovered this site this spring, and I have enjoyed this season more than any other in no small part due to your work. Good luck.

  734. Dave September 18th, 2009 at 9:46 am

    Pete –

    I’m an out of town fan. I’ve been thinking lately that this really is a golden age for folks like me – I get (almost) all of the games I want via mlb.tv, all the audio I want via AtBat, and I get great commentary every day via the blogs. Your blog is a big part of this. You’ve been a part of my daily routine for years now, like coffee in the morning.

    Congratulations to you – this is a fantastic, and well-deserved opportunity. I’m a lifelong Yanks fan, but I’m now giving serious consideration to following your new blog. Old habits die hard.

    D

  735. Patrick September 18th, 2009 at 9:50 am

    Congrats on the new job Pete. The Red Sox fans are lucky to have you. Thanks for all of your posts over the last three years. Your replacement has some very big shoes to fill.

  736. Jim from Dalton September 18th, 2009 at 9:50 am

    I just this isn’t enough to put them over the top…

    the door is always open…if you need a place to stay when at Wahconah park..let me know…

  737. Paul September 18th, 2009 at 9:52 am

    Wow – Good luck Pete – with the state of newspapers, I don’t begrudge you this for a second. Your hard work and dedication here got you this opportunity, and you’ll be closer to your beloved Pats!

    I hope they find someone close to your dedication and skill to take over this – this blog was a multiple-times-a-day stop for me – you made it a must-follow destination for the serious Yankee fan!

    You’ll be missed.

  738. JZ September 18th, 2009 at 9:57 am

    Pete –

    Best of luck to you. During the season, your blog is the first thing I read in the morning and usually, the last thing at night. I always looked forward to your in game blog and sarcasm. I’ll have to check out the Boston blog to see what you are up to. And, here is hoping that 80 years from now, Red Sox fans lament the curse of Abraham. :)

  739. Jac September 18th, 2009 at 9:59 am

    Best of Luck! This is clearly a huge opportunity and so very much deserved. It just makes me selfishly sad because I have no idea where I’m going to get the kind of Yankee coverage you have provided on this blog. It will take surfing way to many articles and blogs! Your great efforts, writing and humor have made me lazy.

  740. Jac September 18th, 2009 at 9:59 am

    correction: way too many…

  741. Benjamin in KC September 18th, 2009 at 10:03 am

    Hey Pete

    Good luck in BOS covering “the nation”. Really will miss your outstanding Yankee coverage.

    Benjamin in KC

  742. mosandman September 18th, 2009 at 10:04 am

    Congratulations Pete. Terrible news for the Yankees fans on this blog, but I am sure it is happy news for you and your family. Your coverage of the Yankees was terrific and the Globe has made the steal of the year.
    Best of Luck, and I hope the team you are going to cover stinks and never wins again : )

  743. Bill Mo September 18th, 2009 at 10:04 am

    Wow!

    Congratulations to you Pete! There comes a point where you have to jump at opportunity. We all knew it was a matter of time that all of your hard work and great writing would be recognized. This blog is really something special, and Red Sox Nation is very lucky to have you covering their Sox.

    Best wishes!

    P.S. Give Youkilis a hard time for us!

  744. joshua Gannon September 18th, 2009 at 10:09 am

    Pete,
    I have never posted a comment but have read your blog several times a day, every day for 2 years.
    My brother Justin and I are die hard Yankee fans but don’t get to enjoy them together since he is in DC and I am in NJ. So, we use your blog as a shared experience with the season and off season exploits of our favorite team. When we were kids groing up in Massachussetts (that’s right!), we spent our days huddled around the radio listening to John and Michael Kay’s broadcast. Now, years later we read the Peter Abraham blog.
    Thank you for bringing us together and your commitment to a media resource that has become the must-see, must-visit for the uber yankee fan!
    Sincerely,
    Joshua Gannon
    Hoboken, NJ

  745. TW September 18th, 2009 at 10:11 am

    Congratulations Pete on your new job.

    The fans in Taiwan will really miss you, as will our media. Your name has become well known to us through our newspapers and TV. Just to give you an idea of how popular and well-known you are here, this is a link to a newspaper story that is all about you and your move to Boston. You may not be able to read it, but the length of the story should give you an idea.

    http://www.nownews.com/2009/09/18/341-2507770.htm

    Wang CM made me a casual baseball fan. But you made me a real Yankee fan. Thank you so much. All the best.

  746. JKefer September 18th, 2009 at 10:16 am

    STAY THROUGH OCTOBERRRRR!

    WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO AT WORK???

    Best of Luck!

    (but seriously…stay through October!!!)

  747. Drive 4-5 September 18th, 2009 at 10:21 am

    “Best of Luck, and I hope the team you are going to cover stinks and never wins again : )”

    That, in a nutshell, sums it up best.

  748. Kathleen September 18th, 2009 at 10:23 am

    Like many others, I rarely post here but read this blog several times a day. No better source of news about the team we all love. I hate to see you go, Pete. Thanks for your work and congratulations to you. But…BOSTON?

  749. AGB September 18th, 2009 at 10:26 am

    There is no blogger better when it comes to the Yankees. You’ll be sorely missed. Best of luck in Boston. I guess Boston finally snatched a good one away from NY, albeit a writer, not a player.

  750. Josh in DC September 18th, 2009 at 10:26 am

    Thanks for everything, Pete!

  751. teddy September 18th, 2009 at 10:28 am

    hey pete thanks for all the update.. you were by far the best yankee blog out there. enjoy your new job, you deserve itand hope it gets better for you

  752. Reader since spring September 18th, 2009 at 10:30 am

    Well congratulations because I think you’re a cool guy but you really should have bought us all dinner first.

  753. Gerry September 18th, 2009 at 10:41 am

    Pete – The impact you’ve had on just about every yankees fan, is quite evident in the 750 posts before me, 15 hrs after you broke the news to all of us. We will miss you covering the yankees, but we will all miss your unique analysis and opinions on situations. Someone who is around the team everyday, we rely on you, on the ground, to report back some of the things outside of mainstream news found on espn.com. Thats partly why we’re all so upset about losing you.

    Losing you to the Red Sox nation is like trading Jeter, Sabathia and Texiera to the Sox for Nick Green.

    Thank you for everything Pete!

    PS. Please blog for the Patriots too!

  754. Stonnie September 18th, 2009 at 10:52 am

    Best of luck Pete! I like your style but refuse to follow you to the Globe. Of all teams, Boston? Ugh! This hurts :)
    Springsteen is awesome.

  755. Gary Simms September 18th, 2009 at 10:53 am

    Dear Pete: While I have not been a long-time subscriber to the blog (maybe 6 months) I am a long-time Yankee fan (more than 50 years).

    I’ve been unemployed for about 7 months, and find that I spend altogether too much time reading about the Yanks online. As you know, lot’s of junk out there :)

    You, on the other hand, cut through the garbage, break news stories, and put things in great perspective.

    I’ll miss your coverage, but wish you the best in the future. I admire someone who recognizes that family comes first.

  756. Faye September 18th, 2009 at 10:59 am

    Pete – I go to your blog several times a day and get info even before the players know it – I will miss being able to find out the lineup for each night – you were always the first place to go for up to the minute Yankee news. Best of luck in Boston.

  757. saucY September 18th, 2009 at 11:10 am

    Pete,

    I was never one to email you in fear of cluttering up your mailbox with a bunch of redundant stuff… So I won’t do it now as this thread isn’t going anywhere.

    I have to say I a was floored by reading this news last night. Being a fan will never be the same. You have changed the way I think about the Yankees and baseball in general. I am a better fan because of you!

    I remember my first trip to this blog back in Janurary of 2007. Work had slowed down and I was checking out Yankee Blogs. I found a few I thought that I liked. And then I found one where some guy was discussing music and baseball and even football. I couldn’t believe you didn’t approve of Prince being the halftime show selection for the superbowl, yet were a huge fan of Bruce. I think I kind of bashed you in my first post. And you responded to it saying that you like Prince, but just didn’t think he would make a good superbowl halftime show…

    I knew then that your commitment to your readers was unmatched.

    I found out in the weeks that followed that the information you had access too was also more than I could get anywhere else.

    You have brought together such a great community of Yankee fans and I hope you can bring together something similar in your future career moves.

    I often sent links to your blog entries to my father. He was never a regular reader, but always loved your perspective on what he did read. In 2008, we were able to meet you in Person at the Blog outing in Scranton. That was really a great experience.

    Good luck at the Globe and I’m so happy you will be near your family. You’ve always been a class act!

    -Derek aka Saucy

    PS – Hope your opinion changed after seeing Prince at that Superbowl. It was one of the best ever, IMO. Even better than Bruce :p

  758. Sergio Gonzalez September 18th, 2009 at 11:13 am

    Wow, this hurts. I feel like we lost a member of the Yankees roster. I wouldn’t feel this bad if we lost some of the players currently on the roster (Edwar Ramirez, Damaso Marte, Josh Towers)

    Best of luck in Boston, Mr. Abraham. You are a class act and excellent at what you do.

  759. DYNASTY IS DESTINY! September 18th, 2009 at 11:17 am

    Congratulations to you, Pete!

    Best of luck!

  760. JJ September 18th, 2009 at 11:20 am

    Pete, I will miss you sorely, and on a daily basis. No matter where in the world I am I have all the news I need at my fingertips and before everyone else thanks to your great blog. I wish you had a half-million readers who all paid you a buck a month for your great service -then you’d have all the dough you need and could continue to provide us with your amazing coverage and great jokes.

    The only positive would’ve been the ability to get more work done rather than incessantly checking your blog, but now i’ll spend even more time online trying to find all the info you so handily summarize for us!

    All the best, you’re a great guy.
    Jesse. NYC.

  761. Phil September 18th, 2009 at 11:31 am

    Pete, Best of luck to you, you are the best at what you do. You will bring some class to the Globe. The Yankee Fans will miss you as well as the gang at BehindtheBombers.com

  762. Marc September 18th, 2009 at 11:31 am

    I cannot begin to express how disappointed I am. Pete, you will be missed.

    Take care, best of luck and enjoy being closer to your family. It sounds like a great opportunity for you.

  763. Chris in Maine September 18th, 2009 at 11:52 am

    Pete, I can’t believe you made it through waivers.

    Seriously though, it is a shame that you can’t see the season through with the Yankees.

    I don’t post a lot, but I read everyday, several times a day. I’ll check in on you a bit, now that you’ve gone to the true darkside.

  764. Turtle September 18th, 2009 at 11:55 am

    The red sox and their nation suck balls.

  765. Max W September 18th, 2009 at 11:57 am

    wow. i am shocked.

    congrats mr. abraham and best of luck with the Boston Globe. i believe i speak for everyone when i say you’ll be missed.

    the ‘red sox nation’ is luckier than they know. the fact that they will be recieving their news from such a great source is truly the only part of this that makes me sour.

    Again, CONGRATULATIONS PETE. You deserve it.

  766. Reno September 18th, 2009 at 12:26 pm

    I’m pretty stoked by the news. I hope they hire someone capable of actual analysis that doesn’t just parrot back everything the Yankees say. It would also help if the new guy didn’t constantly try to incite the idiots by doing things like running garbage claiming that Derek Jeter is the MVP. Pete claiming the voters will consider the Gehrig record in the voting was my all time favorite.

  767. Potch September 18th, 2009 at 12:39 pm

    Reader and occasional poster for over two years.

    Call me very saddened to hear you’re leaving. Happy for you, Pete, but for myself, not so much so…

    It has been an absolute pleasure to come by here every day, several times a day to check for Yankee info. I sincerely hope your replacement can be even half as good and attentive to us as you have been.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. Best of luck at your new job. Just not for the team you’re covering…

  768. Christos September 18th, 2009 at 12:39 pm

    I’m sorry to see you go Pete. You are an amazing writer/blogger and the Globe is lucky to have you. I know we as Yankees fans were.

  769. David Weiss September 18th, 2009 at 12:45 pm

    Dear Mr. Abraham,

    I have been an avid reader of your blog for a couple of years now, although I have never commented until today. I have admired your energy, humor, perspective, and writing for some time. I use your blog as a primary source of reliable and entertaining information about the Yankees, of whom I’ve been a devoted fan since my first visit to Yankee Stadium in 1954.

    I write to congratulate you on your excellent career move, and also to let you know that my daughter also writes and blogs for Boston.com, on the subjects of TV and popular culture. I hope you’ll get to know her. Her name is Joanna Weiss. I’ve told her that your hiring bodes well for the Globe, in terms of their taking the internet as seriously as she has been advocating for some time.

    All the best to you, and I will really miss your refreshing daily updates.

    Sincerely,

    David Weiss (dlweiss46@gmail.com)

  770. Kered Retej September 18th, 2009 at 12:51 pm

    Long-time reader, first (and last)-time poster.

    You will be missed, Pete. Good luck with the new gig.

  771. Lou September 18th, 2009 at 12:55 pm

    This stinks

  772. JeffG September 18th, 2009 at 12:55 pm

    Pete – Good luck. You’ve done a fantastic job here. Can’t believe you are going to Boston but the decision is easy to understand.

  773. sfill September 18th, 2009 at 1:06 pm

    Best of luck to you Pete! I open this blog first, every single day and rely on it for the during-game updates. You are, hands down, the best sports blogger out there b/c you keep it very current and with very reliable, and entertaining information! Love your sarcasm too! It will be so sad to see you go! Good luck! I know you will do great!

    On another note- I think Pete should have a contest for his blog followers for who will be the ‘next’ blogger here … Well it was just an idea :)

  774. Isa September 18th, 2009 at 1:08 pm

    Pete, best of luck to you. I always read, but hardly post comments. Boston is lucky to have you!!

    This is the best yankees blog out there, I will miss the updates and great stories! We will miss you

  775. BobF September 18th, 2009 at 1:08 pm

    Enjoyed the blog so much since I started to read it this spring.

    Will miss your insights.

    This is BS, I want a recount.

  779. Ruddy Garmendez September 18th, 2009 at 1:38 pm

    I take one night off from checking your blog(due to the Yanks off day)…and this is what I wake up to?

    I started reading you this year, so I guess I’m pissed that I only got less than a season, but I wish you well and will always wonder if this is some scheme by Henry to get back at the Yankee Universe for taking the division from them.

  780. MikeD September 18th, 2009 at 1:49 pm

    Well, at least I’ll know where to go to get Red Sox news, although only after my Yankee fix!

    Good luck. You’ve done a great job here. I think some of the slightly negative posts here illustrate the changing role of the news media and reporters. It’s much more easy to identify a reporter, or blogger, with the team he covers today. In the past, a reporter could move from publication to publication, town to town, team to team, and fans would never know. There was almost no interaction between fans and reporters. Not so today.

    This blog will continue because of the fans and the team they root for, but we certainly appreciate all you did to establish it as a must destination for Yankee fans.

  781. ATC September 18th, 2009 at 1:55 pm

    Good luck!!!

    I will miss your great blog

  782. brad pitt's better looking brother September 18th, 2009 at 2:04 pm

    Haven’t checked the blog here out for some time Pete, no offense to you – you were the champion circus ring master. But I saw that you were moving on while on a another website and thought I’d send my best wisher too. Your shoes will be tough to fill, if not that ugly mug.
    Congratulations on the monster you created here and your success in the future with the Globe.
    Good to be close to family.

  783. That's Baseball, Suzyn September 18th, 2009 at 2:07 pm

    This sucks.

    Ugh. Good luck, Pete. I guess that’s baseball, Suzyn.

  784. 407 feet right of center September 18th, 2009 at 2:34 pm

    congratulations and good luck. and thank you for a job well done! as i understand it you will now be a fellow employee of the red sox players as both the globe and the sox are parts of the ny times empire, which in turn is in hock up to its ears to some mexican dude

  785. Edubs September 18th, 2009 at 2:36 pm

    Pete,

    I have been visiting this blog regularly for two years now and have never posted. Congrats on your new position at the Globe.

    More important is the additional time you will be afforded with your family. Enjoy it, as some day you will surely cherish it.

    Best of luck,

    Eric

  786. Chris September 18th, 2009 at 2:59 pm

    This is the most devasting loss of a Yankee journalist since Buster Olney left the NY Times for ESPN.

    Pete, job well done.

  787. Kelly September 18th, 2009 at 3:03 pm

    Good luck in boston pete! sad to see you go, i check this blog at least 5 times a day, what am i gonna do now? :(
    thanks for all your hard work, this is definitely the best Yankees blog on the internet!

  788. Chris September 18th, 2009 at 3:04 pm

    Rather “devastating”, not devasting.

    Goes to show how shaken up I am.

  789. gianthinker September 18th, 2009 at 3:15 pm

    Pete-As a loyal blogger since this site popped up in 2006 I wish you nothing but the best. We all love you here.

    That being said, you are covering the Sox? I’m so blown away. Does the word trader ring a bell?

    Sorry to leave you on that note because I think you’re a great guy and a hard worker but going to the Sox is like a spit in our Yankees fans faces. Good luck but at the same time I’m completely disappointed. I will never come to this blog again. I’m extremely disappointed.

  790. Sean Serritella September 18th, 2009 at 3:25 pm

    Good luck Pete. You are and were the number one Yankee blogger.

  791. neildo September 18th, 2009 at 4:15 pm

    As a Sox fan, ive come to love your straight forward reporting. im thrilled that you are coming home to be closer to family. I know that some detractors in here tell you that Boston sucks but you being from New Bedford already know what a great town it is. New York and Boston are two great cities. Why anyone would want to knock the cities and there teams is ignorant.
    The 2 weeks wont come soon enough. We are all waiting…
    One more thing, I have to laugh at Stevie calling the sox, the Roid Sox…. Hmmm Arod Giambi, Sheffield, Pettite, and Fat Roger.. OHHHH KAAAY, we all have our share.

  792. jason September 18th, 2009 at 4:37 pm

    Pete,

    you’ll be sorely missed. I have been reading you daily for 2 years and loved the insight you provided! Not to mention the occasional Springsteen interjection here and there. Wish you all the best in your future en devour and the Globe is definitely a step up. Next stop is taking Gammons job, we’ve seen/heard you on ESPN before, what’s stopping you.

    -Jason

  793. John in Brooklyn September 18th, 2009 at 5:18 pm

    This really is a crushing blow. This has been my main source for Yankee information these last few years, and although I rarely post I’ve had a real feeling of community when I come here.

    Pete, you’ve done an absolutely amazing job with this assignment. We all owe you some deep gratitude. Hell, I’m sure many of us would have been willing to walk through a pay wall to keep this thing going.

    This to me is what beat reporting is all about & needs to be about in the insta-information age: constant news stream, well-researched factoids, direct access (postgame audio posts, Q&As, gossip-y nuggets), a good dose of opinion (enough so we know you really give a crap) and probably above all, orchestrating this massive, dedicated reader community.

    I’m glad the Globe’s editors recognized how good you are at this. Hats off to them for snatching you up. Wish it was the Times!

    Best of luck,
    John

  794. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO September 18th, 2009 at 5:44 pm

    To say I am shocked is probably an understatement. I check this blog as frequently as my email. Indeed, it will be a severe loss to the Yankees and their fans. I honestly haven’t felt this shocked about anything Yankees related since Joe Torre left.

    If your replacement is half as good as you, then I think we’ll be lucky. But it won’t be the same, no matter what.

    Good Luck in Beantown. You will be missed.

  795. yankeespy3 September 18th, 2009 at 5:58 pm

    You better be getting truckloads of money for this.

  796. Mike September 18th, 2009 at 6:02 pm

    Wow. Shocker! It stinks that you only have two more weeks on the Yankee beat. I’ll be missing your insight and your writing come October.
    Best wishes on the move to Boston. Nice time of year to be there, even though circumstances are pretty insane.
    Mike, Albany

  797. Jhonny September 18th, 2009 at 6:24 pm

    Pete, thanks for the plethora of knowledge and insight. You will truly be missed around here and i wish the best of luck for you and your family. (sorry but not for the sox)

  798. Donald S September 18th, 2009 at 6:31 pm

    Pete, this blog is the best out there- this website is the first port of call for me regarding yankee news heck its the first port of call for me full stop! This is a tremendous dissapointment- although i rarely post i truly appreciate all your efforts covering our yankees- and i’d like to wish you all the best for the future. Fingers crossed this website will remain,though won’t be the same, and we will miss your insight regarding October.
    best, Donald

  799. Dave M September 18th, 2009 at 6:59 pm

    Good luck Pete. We’ll miss you!!!

  800. 213 Area Code September 18th, 2009 at 7:02 pm

    Getting the news at 2:00pm Pacific time Friday proves what so many have written about how integral The Blog’s become to them: Because Thurs was an off day, I didn’t do my usual evening LHYB check-in. As always, the first thing I did when I got to a computer Friday (unusual that its late afternoon) was check The Blog & get hit with this; I’ve been reading the 700+ comments for an hour & its helped me deal with it.

    Now that the move is officially old news, I want to congratulate you, Pete, but add that I hope you’ll continue to “be you” in Beantown: Hold Gentleman Josh accountable as a “pole” model rather than a role model, point out the BOS/Mitchell Report hypocrisy, etc., & call out Sully & Tawmy for being drunk frat jerks. In short, don’t go native on us.

    Don’t, because most of us hardcores will probably still read you, despite insistence that we won’t/don’t. It’s already been said far better by others, but The Blog has been the center of NYY Universe for a long time now; you frequently mention the ‘community’ or what used to be referred to as “our little endeavor”. 1,000,000 comments later, it’s no surprise both that some folks here feel betrayed & that your excellent work here has led to something bigger (notice I didn’t say better).

    I started reading The Blog in 2006, sometime before the All Star break, and the 4 seasons since have been the most involving in my 35 years as a NYY fan. Now, that’s over, at least in this form. Whether it’s Borden, Jennings or Ashmore, here’s hoping LoHud gets wise & gets us a moderator that will keep The Blog together.

    My only personal note is to say, Pete you couldn’t have picked a worse time to make the switch: By my reckoning, it’ll be the day between the end of Reg Season & Game 1 of ALDS. For what it’s worth, if I can afford it, I always like to spend the 1st week of Oct in Hawai’i, where you can watch the division series starting at 7:30am local time & this year I’ll be there Oct 3rd. I was obviously counting on The Blog to really make my vacation whole…well so much for that.

    Here’s hoping I don’t become one of the trolls on the new BoSux blog that Pete admonishes the Beaneaters to ignore (or maybe here’s hoping that I do).

  801. claybeez September 18th, 2009 at 7:26 pm

    Best of luck, Pete. In these uncertain times, you have to choose wisely. I think you did.

    I’ve read this blog, maybe since the beginning, at least since early on. I will miss the great coverage and the Q&A’s. Thanks so much for creating this amazing virtual place in the Yankee Universe.

  802. Geo September 18th, 2009 at 8:06 pm

    if the Yanks win the championship this year… I hope he’s not allowed in the locker room

  803. terpbomber September 18th, 2009 at 8:08 pm

    Wow, this news nearly slipped under the radar for me. I was too busy to notice as the newer updates had supplanted this flash.

    You ran a great blog here, Pete. Best of luck, even if the team you’ll be covering is our biggest rivals!

    When the torch is passed, I hope the person can carry on the tradition and camaraderie we have going, thanks in no small part to you!

  804. I always post under a different name. September 18th, 2009 at 11:31 pm

    Mad. Still mad. Seems like a betrayal. Reminds me of when Buster Olney went to ESPN and suddenly stopped supporting the Yankkees. So all this time Pete has just been a beat reporter and didn’t really like the Yankees it was just his job? On the best Yankees blog ever? Man, this is rough.

    Pete, I still like you but… you know.

  805. ThinMan September 19th, 2009 at 10:17 pm

    Sox fans do consider ourselves lucky to have Pete. I’ve been a long time reader of his blog here, and he’s been the best beat writer — by far — covering things from your side of the rivalry. I’m sure he’ll be terribly missed here, but we’re thrilled to be adding his insight to coverage of the Sox.

    Welcome to Boston, Pete!

  806. deadrody September 21st, 2009 at 12:52 am

    Not to be a jerk, but is that necessarily a good idea ? The Globe is not exactly the picture of financial health right now. There are offers on the table to buy what sold in the 90s for 1+ billion dollars for $35M, which is less than the Globe’s current debt.

    “Painful restructuring” at the Globe may be a layoff in the hypothetical future.

    I would normally say “CONGRATULATIONS”, but living in the Boston area, I know the Globe is not exactly a prime employer at the moment.

  807. deadrody September 21st, 2009 at 12:55 am

    I am curious to see what kind of “insider dirt” about yankee fans gets dished on the new blog…

  808. kevin September 21st, 2009 at 3:50 pm

    Peter –
    I returned from vacation and, after reading a reference to your departure in one of today’s posts, I decided to scroll back to see what was going on. I found this post and my fears were confirmed. I read this blog several times per day but have never before posted. I share the sentiments of many of the 800+ previous commenters in that I am happy for you but sad for myself. Your reporting and insight have been integral to my experience as a Yankees fan these past 2-3 years and I will greatly miss your contributions to this blog. I wish you the best of luck in Boston.

  809. Lauren September 21st, 2009 at 5:38 pm

    Pete,

    I’ll send my obligatory congratulations and thank you’s but I am utterly devastated. I feel like I’ve just been robbed. Lots of luck at The Globe.

    Why bother replacing you? No one will come close. Can you walk away that easily Pete? :( So sad.

    And to RSN:
    Enjoy your sloppy seconds. :P Just like the Sox…always wanting what the Yankees have.

    And see what happened yesterday to the Pats? Tom Brady isn’t right because you’re taking away his favorite Yankee blog. Already the impacts are being felt! ;) Sure you don’t wan to reconsider?? I don’t know where I will get my Yankee info from. Thanks for the memories Pete!!!

    Hi Pete–
    Long-time reader but I’ve never posted before. You gave us a view of the game and a feel for the players that was really special. The blog about the Yankees will continue but we’ll miss your presence and voice… Moving on from something you’ve created is never easy– as Garrison Keillor says… “Be well. Do good work.”

  814. Christine Crosby October 7th, 2009 at 12:05 pm

    Pete, I just heard the news. I had a baby this summer and so I haven’t been around much. I wish you well. You will be missed!!

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

The issue is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I found this in my hunt for something regarding this.

  839. great post August 9th, 2014 at 6:51 am

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  849. link August 9th, 2014 at 12:15 pm

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    I have learned many important things as a result of your post. I’d personally also like to express that there is a situation in which you will obtain a loan and never need a cosigner such as a Federal Student Support Loan. When you are getting a borrowing arrangement through a traditional lender then you need to be able to have a cosigner ready to assist you to. The lenders are going to base that decision on the few aspects but the most important will be your credit history. There are some creditors that will additionally look at your job history and make a decision based on that but in many instances it will be based on on your scores.
