    I have an announcement to make

    Since September of 2002 I had the honor and privilage of covering the Staten Island Yankees. I felt my audience had grew from the small local Staten Island Die-Hards and players families to the thousands of you who made it worth while the past two years

    The experience has been one I enjoyed and will always cherrish, but now it is time to move on. For the 2010 season I will not be covering the Staten Island Yankees for Gotham Baseball. I will be moving to a much smaller role with the magazine.

    This will allow me to concentrate more on my goal of entering the United States Air Force after I complete my Bachalor’s Degree from St. John’s University. With my time I will be studying for various exams as well undergoing a phyiscal fitness program to get back into shape for the military.

    I remember rich mahogany. He used to post here. Tried to pass himself off as a Yankee Fan, but he was a Sawx troll.

    Re: I have an announcement to make

    Thank you guys very much. I will continue to provide coverage until June at which point the new writer would take over. We are in the process of finding a new writer, when I get more info I will pass it along.

    In other news....
    Since I will be leaving I need to clear out inventory. Which means all the Game Used Staten Island Yankees jerseys I was selling will now see price cuts. E-mail me if you are interested.

    Select Jerseys will be auctioned off on eBay.
    Like Mark Melancon's Game Used Staten Island Yankees Jerseys. The first one to be auctioned off is his road jersey from the 2006 season.

    Good luck to you in everything you pursue in life and thanks for all of the good conversation you've supplied here.

    My co-worker's son just recently entered the Air Force and loves it.
    We have enough youth.

    9/18/2012 T.V. FLASH ON ALL PROGRAM SERVICES

    This is an announcement from Genetic Control:
    "It is my sad duty to inform you of a four foot restriction on
    humanoid height."


    EXTRACT FROM CONVERSATION OF JOE ORDINARY IN LOCAL PUBORAMA

    "I hear the directors of Genetic Control have been buying all the
    properties that have recently been sold, taking risks oh so bold.
    It's said now that people will be shorter in height, they can fit
    twice as many in the same building site.
    I'm frantic... Jeter Ceremony Date - when will this be announced????

    Adam Warren and Neil Medchill look to be the fast risers out of the group. Higashioka calls a game like a veteran and could fly up if he wasnt blocked at the upper levels. I also wouldnt rule out D-Mack.

    I will be with Gotham Baseball until around June, after that I will go to a few games to take photos for the magazine and other places. I will be using most of my time to study and prepare for the physical exams.
