Found September 10, 2012 on Lady At The Bat:
By the end of last week I was ready to declare the Yankees dead. However, they showed me something this past weekend by splitting 4 games with the second-place Baltimore Orioles. In this episode of the podcast I talk about my near-eulogy, eat a little crow and recap the weekend series at Camden Yards. Also, Paul (Sully) Sullivan of the Red Sox blog Sully Baseball returns to the show to talk about his favorite team and to preview this week's series against the Yankees at Fenway Park. I close things out with a personal update of sorts.Leave your comments below or send me an email (ladybatting@gmail.com). You can also hit me up on Twitter (@LabyBatting) or leave me a voicemail at (347) 640-4259. Enjoy and thanks for listening.
