By The Baseball Beginnings Guy
July 16, 2012
Dear Oppenheimer — Hey, I liked this guy a lot last summer. I did. So here’s a Wisconsin kid being drafted by the Yankees while my book about the Milwaukee Braves beating the New York Yankees is on the shelves. Oh, man, you gotta love the irony. I could start cracking Bob Zuk jokes that only you and I would understand, you know, the joke about John Young’s hat, but only you, I and three other scouts would get the joke. We’ll just let the rest of the baseball world guess, which is what Bob would love. You know it as well as I.
Dear Nate — Dude, I think you can hit. Make me right. This post is not affiliated with the Yankees, but it is sponsored by my witty sense of humor. Get to it, Wisconsin.
