I found myself reading over the answers to my questions over and over last night, and my initial thoughts on the younger Bichette were confirmed.  This kid is not only going to have a long, productive career in the bigs, but he is every bit the excellent person that we all have heard about.  Dante Bichette Jr is someone that Yankee (and all baseball) fans can be proud of, and that is a testament to his upbringing.  <span style="font-family: "Times New Roman","serif"; font-size: 12pt; line-height: 11...

Who Will Replace Rivera as Yankees Closer

With 42-year-old Mariano Rivera on the DL for the first time since 2003, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that David Robertson and Rafael Soriano will close games the remainder of the season.
