Found August 22, 2013 on IT IS HIGH, IT IS FAR, IT IS caught:
Several news outlets have reported that Hal Steinbrenner this week called the Yankee Legion of Super Suits to Tampa for a rant session about the farm system, which has turned out bumper crops of pebbles now for three seasons. (BTW: Next year's harvest could be the juiciest, bursting with flavor, Pop Rocks yet.)This is great news. It almost makes me believe Hal is reading some Yankee blogs, who for years have been decrying the dead farm system - while the mainstream beat writers work to capture those delightful post-game quotes, which are so treasured by Yankee fans.At considerable expense, IT IS HIGH hired Brian Cashman's rappeling teacher to shinny down from the building's roof and cup a microphone to the window, allowing us to record the event. Unfortunately, the man fell to his death.Nevertheless, another source came through. The following are official minutes of the session.9:00 a.m. Owner Hal S. opened meeting, welcoming summer interns from Wharton School.9:01 a.m. ...

Rays give Mariano Rivera a sandcastle

See the resemblance? Neither do I. The Tampa Bay Rays gave Yankees closer Mariano Rivera and odd gift in his final trip to their ballpark, a sandcastle…that looks nothing like him.  I’m pretty sure the sculpture has a beard. How do you give the gift of a sandcastle?  He ain’t flying that pile of sand home.  Might as well have adopted a sting ray in the wild. It’s the thought...
