Bernie: This one’s for you, Jeet

Before taking the stage on Saturday night in Phoenix, Ariz., where he is participating in several Major League Baseball All-Star events, Bernie Williams passed on the following message to Derek Jeter.

STATEMENT FROM FORMER YANKEE BERNIE WILLIAMS REGARDING DEREK JETER’S 3,000TH HIT:

“Congratulations, Jeet, on No. 3,000. I wish I could have been at the Stadium today, but I was certainly glued to the TV in my hotel room in Arizona. In true Jeter fashion, you did not limp into the 3,000 hit club, but absolutely blew the doors off of it. I celebrate with you, your family and friends, all your teammates through the years, the Yankee organization, and baseball fans around the world. While the home run for number 3,000 is what everyone will remember from this day…knowing you…you probably are more satisfied with that eighth inning single up the middle that won the game. I was privileged to have the best seat in the house to see the majority of those 3,000 hits, and so many of your greatest moments, and while today is yet another one of those moments to add to your amazing career in pinstripes, I know there is still a lot more to come. Just exhale, enjoy it, and know what an honor it was to be your teammate for so many years. Tonight, my last song is dedicated to you my friend. “

I agree Bob…I would say he should get the op and be 100%…we may see Laird come up and fill in a little…he has power and is a real 3rd sacker…I don’t know but I do like Nunez…he has speed, looks good at 3rd and can hit…Even the Rays announcers today were praising him..saying the Yanks were high on him…looks like the red sox will win..O’s just can’t get runners in from 3rd…Red Sox starters are all screwed up, hurt, ineffective, they are using Aceves alot and its working but they have some issues as we do…

By the way itdibo is obviously a handle. What’s your real name?

itdibo: I did. Like it. So does Seeknay. I was nervous when I saw Mitre warming up. Bring him in in the 9th leading by one run and we’re done. Fortunately CC got it done.

Great win for CC and the Yankees. What was Upton doing today? Man, his head was somewhere else all game. But we’ll take it. Hope the Sox won’t win today. A little too late for CC. He should have been named to the All Star team at the beginning. Being added this late is a joke. Glad he’s going to enjoy some time with his family. Wonder what ARod is going to decide to do. I’m of two minds. Do surgery, lose him for a month and he’s healthy for down the stretch, but how much is that going to hurt us in the next month? It’s a lot to expect of Nunez and Chavez isn’t available. Swish should be back after All Star break. We need to keep this going.

Bob…did you steal the “MEAT TRAY” from me….lmao…great game..great win…great pitcher…wow

Someone has screwed up here. No lineups or blog. Has happened too often since the beginning of the season. CC dominant again. We have a weakened lineup again with ARod out and Swish. Can’t go with this lineup very long or it’s going to backfire on us. Can we hold on to squeak this one out? Can CC go another inning? Please Girardi don’t bring Meat Tray into this game unless you want to give it away.
