Sorry Mr. President, that number is taken

After roughly six hours in the air with Sweeny Murti — I finally watched and loved Pirate Radio and Crazy Heart on the plane — I have successfully arrived in San Francisco, where I believe every Yankees beat writer is staying for this week’s series against Oakland. I covered an NCAA Tournament in San Jose eight years ago, but that was the closest to the Bay I’d ever been until now.

I’m looking forward to a walk downtown, but first…

The Yankees announced this afternoon that the team will visit the White House on Monday, April 26. Good thing I packed a suit and booked a red eye from L.A. to Baltimore, just in case..

I believe it’s standard for the World Series winner to give the president a jersey with his number on it. President Obama, of course, is the 44th U.S. president, which means the Yankees might have to un-retire Reggie Jackson’s number for the day.
