Great story in about Miguel Andujar and after yesterday's 4-4 game for him, and a Yankee win in which Miguel was a huge part of, we needed to share some of it...

"What Miguel Andujar is doing now is just about what Yankees international scouts envisioned when they first zeroed in on the Dominican Republic native when he was 15 years old.

"He had bad intentions when he stepped in the batters box," Yankees international scouting director Donny Rowland said recently in a phone interview. "He wanted to hurt something."

After a rough start taking over for the injured Brandon Drury (severe migraines) at third base, Andujar has helped carry the Yankees' offense the last two weeks.

With his 4-for-4 (two doubles) showcase in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium, Andujar (23 years, 51 days old) became the youngest Yankee to have four or more hits in a game since Melkey Cabrera (21 years, 292 days old) in 2006."

It's Melky, not Melkey, but all good, we get it.

I love to see when these young players start to get a rhythm.  Sometimes that energy rubs off.  With Gleyber Torres up yesterday, there will be a lot of learning in that infield, but with guys like Didi Gregoirus to help out, there is no question the hits will start coming.

Yankee fans, we are in a very important time in our lives with this team.  A well rounded, solid group of young men all finally given an opportunity to shine. Sure, kinks will needed to be worked out, but let it happen.  It's a good place to be.

Good piece by Kuty of here and I wish this team the best of luck. It's about to get real fun.
