Happy 1st Birthday, IIATMS

Happy 1st birthday to the blog. It's been an incredible first year. Thank you all for coming by, visiting, hanging out, debating, challenging, etc. Those are the reasons why I do this and why I have so much fun doing it.

Since I haven't yet began to feel any burnout, I'll keep this going. I hope to get some more interviews with current and former players/coaches/agents. Being able to bring their perspectives to you was a lot of fun. I'll try to do more of that.

I'll also try to keep things fun as much as possible.

I'd be remiss if I didn't offer a big thank you to Craig from ShysterBall for all of his help and chatter during this past year. And to my most loyal readers, keep the comments and emails coming!

Thanks again for coming by. I appreciate it!

Congrats Jason. You're still one of the few sites I check several times a day.

Ditto. Who would have thought, a rationale Yankees fan? May wonders never cease...

Nice work Jason...keep it up.

Even though I'm a relatively new reader, I can say that I am glad you've decided to keep up with things. I used to be a frequent member of nyyfans.com (formerly bronxbombers.com until lawyers got involved) but it was just too much of an effort to keep up with things there. This is a nice, neat, capsulated package of Yankee/baseball news that I can digest easily. And since there are only a handful of comments on each story, I feel as though I have the chance to actually say something to say that hasn't already been said.

Anyway...congrats, Jason. Keep up the good work. It's definitely appreciated.

Happy Anniversary my friend. Who'd have thought a year ago when you started this that it'd bring you to this point? All the encouragement over the years and debates and lengthy e-mails have proven to be the basis of this great blog. You should be very proud of this.

YOU DA MAN!

(I still hate Boeheim, though)

Thanks for the kind words, guys.

You've become a valuable daily addition to important thoughts about baseball. I especially appreciate the wry treatment of the BoSox-Yankee rivalry. Quite an accomplishment for a true Yankee fan.

The chore you've chosen is a life-eater, but good luck keeping it rolling.

And if the baseball gods are kind, Manny will be suiting up for the Hiroshima Dead Sparrows next year for league minimum.

Anon, thanks for that great message. I really appreciate it.

Love your Manny destination idea
