It would have been sweet if the Yankees had won their last game of the season and Teixeira’s last game as a professional baseball player, but it wasn’t to be. The Orioles got the better of us in terms of the score. Tex, however, had a lovely farewell from the Steinbrenners, his teammates and coaches and the fans. I’ll try to remember his earlier years in pinstripes when he was so productive at the plate and so skillful at first base, not the most recent years when he was injured so often.
In any case, it’s on to the playoffs for several teams while the Yankees braintrust figures out how to craft a winning team for the future. It’ll be interesting to see what, if any, moves are made in the off-season and I’ll certainly blog about any newsworthy events in Yankeeville. But for the most part, I guess I’ll be putting “Confessions” on hiatus. Feel free to stop by with any comments and I’ll be sure to respond and, as I said, check back after news breaks and I’ll weigh in.
Meanwhile, have a healthy and happy off-season!
