The newest Yankee

The Stadium controversy as a national bellwether
Open Thread: KLaw's farm system rankings

In an article appropriately written by Chase Write — but probably not the Chase WrightThe Stamford Times reports on the newest member of the 2009 Yankees. Lou Potter of Stamford has signed a one-year deal to join the club as the full-time massage therapist. He’ll join the club next month in Tampa and travel the baseball nation with them this summer. This is Potter’s second stint with the club but his first in a full-time position. What a perk, eh? (Hat tip to long-time RAB supporter Scott.)

    Guys, I think we just found the missing piece of championship number 27…Lou Potter, now the question is, “will he bat before or after A-rod…oh wait, thats Mark Teixeira. My mistake.

    hey you guys made it onto Rob Neyer’s blog on ESPN!!!!

    • Mike Pop

      Neyer holds the record for the longest chat. 12 hours and 1 minute on the opening day of the 2008 season. He had the record for 6 hours and change and when Bill Simmons broke it with 7 hours and 4 minutes. Neyer had to regain it and just destroyed the record, haha.

    Preparation for Sheets?

  • Troy

    Wait, so that article wasn’t written by Erik Bedard Chase Wright?

    what a crock.

  • Shamus

    Is this an indication of a Ben Sheets signing coming soon?

    But then I saw it was a ‘message therapist’ position? What the hell is that?

    Someone that weeds out all the good gals from the whores that are chasing down A-Rod and Jeter?

    What’s the matter with you people? Why do you have to be so rediculous and envious instead of supportive? Your commentary is exactly what embaresses sport fans. Grow up
