Drinking the Yankees

Game Thread: Billy Crystal Day
The mean old Pirates struck out Billy Crystal

Via PeteAbe comes the news that two more Yankees have lent their visages to Longball Cellars line of Charity Wines. Bobby Abreu and Jorge Posada are the latest two to have their faces immortalized in wine.

Abreu’s Finest is a 2006 Merlot from California. Money from the sale of this wines to the Police Athletic League, the charity of New York’s Finest. The Jorge Cabernet supports The Jorge Posada Foundation.

Also in this latest release is a Schilling Schardonnay. This is an over-the-hill bottle of wine that was once good but now just sits around pretending to be the be-all and end-all of baseball wines.

    The Schilling is a pretentious grape with a bitter aftertaste.

    Schilling’s wine is the only one that gets drunk on itself.

    I heard that abreu’s wine used to be much stronger, but it packs very little punch anymore….
