Bob Sheppard is alive and well

Cashman: Yankee organization has a new power structure
If Igawa's involved, the Twins' demands are definitely changing

When the Yankees’ season unceremoniously ended at the hands of the Cleveland Indians in October, Bob Sheppard was out with a long bout of laryngitis. Until today, we hadn’t heard anything about Bob, and I had just assumed he had gotten better. If he had gotten worse, the news would be out there. In a weekend mailbag, Peter Abraham confirms that assumption: According to Yanks’ Media Director Jason Zillo, “Mr. Sheppard is feeling much better and is scheduled to resume his position behind the mic for Opening Day.” Phew.

    yeah thank god! if he can complete this year, i will be satisfied forever. Not to be synical, but after this year, 100+ years of history and tradition comes crashing down anyway, so if this was it for him I am lucky to have grown up hearing him.
