I had a post on Bronx Banter earlier today, about my continuing indecision over whether or not to have a fantasy team this year. Yes, these huge life-altering decisions are always the hardest.
Meanwhile, I was glad to hear the news about Joe Mauer’s new Twins deal. I like Mauer, I like the Twins, and I like the absence of shrill wailing about how the Yankees have ruined baseball (the normal, quieter wailing about how the Yankees have ruined baseball suits me better). Besides, for all the speculation about the current AL MVP one day landing on the Yankees, I don’t think New York City is big enough to contain both David Wright and Joe Mauer. I worry that their clean-shaven, all-American, aw-shucks good-guy personas would cancel each other out, and turn them both in to druggy, whoring Commies. It’s better for everyone this way.
In other news, for any upstate NYers reading this, I’ll be heading to Glens Falls this Friday night for a reading/signing/discussion at the Red Fox bookstore. My dad will be there too. He’s quite a character, and it should be a fun evening – so if you’re in the area, come on by.
