A True Gentleman, Yankee and Family Man

It has bee a while since I last posted on the Yankees, actually there is not much to discuss, the passing of GMS 3rd, has left the Yankees, somewhat boring to a degree, at least for me a life long devotee.

The Jeter thing leaves me cold, there have not been any exciting signings, keeping Joba is, at least to me foolish, hell send him to Milwaukee,, then watch him flourish and them win HUGE, which would be GREAT for the game and that wonderful town/city Milwaukee. Signing Soriano is good, he the potential to be the closer of the future,, if he can handle the allure of the Greatest City on the Planet. Brian Cashman is being silly with his now open minded opinions, and Mr. Steinbrenners boy's, are proving to be just that, although one seems more in control and sane than the other..

Putting your eggs in one Cliff Lee basket was a fools pla, especially not truly knowing what Andy was going to do. But True to his Faith, Family and himself, he choose Family. Sad for Yankee fans, but a MAN'S CHOICE..He like Cliff Lee proved it was not about the money or the fame, it was about comfort and happiness, and as a Father of a Most Wonderful Young Man would make the same choice.

Friday Andy will retire from Major League Baseball,,for now, his concentration will be that of being Husband, Father and a man at Peace with his life, career and accomplishments...They are truly amazing if you just take a moment and look.

A purely faith based man with enormous integrity and devotion, Andy leaves a hole yes, but a legacy of Truth, Sincerity, Honesty and Dignity, outstanding craftsmanship and a Hall of Fame Career as both a Player, but most importantly as a Human Being.

Today's kids can look upon Andy with joy, pride and a STRONG VALUE, to them as a role model, athlete and Human Being. His love of God and Family is not for sale, for show, or anything commercial. It is just that Truth and Integrity, discipline, accomplishment, loyalty, love and the essence of the word TEAM MATE.

His legendary arm will surely be missed, his smile and humility as well, but Andy leaves the game ON TOP with a resume that one can only dream of:)

#46 will hang in Monument Park for future generations to see, and talk about, but for those of us who had the privilege of "seeing him in person", well that is in itself a lasting ongoing gift.

I/We will miss Andy and all he has brought, given and dedicated himself too. We have been blessed by his sharing himself with us to cheer for, occasionally boo, but always hoping and praying that he would again, pull us out of the woods.

Andy, stay home,just be Dad and a Husband, but first: thank you for the joy, the pleasure and the gifts that you have bestowed on the name New York Yankees, your fans and especially our Children.

You will miss the guys, as they will miss you, you will miss the moments, the Championships, even the heartaches. But now you have the greatest gift of ALL, that of Family with a love that is a never ending series of Championships, and yes some heartaches, along with that never ending wonderment and joy that goes with being pure honest and sincere.....A FAMILY:).

May God bless you, stand by and with you and your family ALWAYS, and Thank you for the sacrifices you made for us, the gifts of Championships, Lessons in Integrity and Truth. Now it is your Family's turn to have you there always as did we and for them and yourself to have what you gave to use so freely and lovingly. I will miss you, but a joyful at your decision for you, you wife but especially your children... Be at Peace, Stay safe, but stay in touch:)
