Just a quick note of thanks for New York Yankee, Francisco Cervelli. Look, we're all fans and we interact a lot. Sometimes were have the luxury of interacting with some of the Yankees... Twitter makes that possible.
Bleeding Yankee Blue wrote extensively about the fan and player connection and how times have changed over the years. If you need a refresher, read CONNECTION ISN'T WHAT IT USED TO BE
and when you're done with that, read LET'S GET "REAL" BETWEEN PLAYERS & FANS AGAIN.
"Sure, we’re still fans
and sure, we still root for our guys like crazy, but if you truly want a piece
of signed memorabilia and you’d like to personally witness the event happen, you need
to go to a card signing and stand in line for hours and hope you meet the player
before being whisked away by his “people” so they can keep the line moving. I’ve been there, I get it, but there are too
many cooks in the kitchen these days. There are too many layers and much less interaction with the
players. I long for the 'old days.'"
In a nutshell, Cervelli made it feel like the 'old days' on Twitter on Saturday for us here at Bleeding Yankee Blue. I sent out a tweet letting him know that Yankeeland was looking to him now that Russell Martin made a mad dash to Pittsburgh.
ALL EYES ON CERVELLI AS RUSSELL MARTIN BOLTS NEW YORK was pretty popular and then Cisco did something, from a player to a fan... he responded. You need to tip your cap, because we all know as Yankee fans that things haven't exactly worked out for the guy this past season. But that didn't matter that moment.
Please comment, we have DISQUS, it's easier than ever. Let me know what you think and follow me on Twitter @BleednYankeeBlu and join the group Bleeding Yankee Blue on Facebook, just type it in.
