We here at the RJG blog often take our inspiration from other writers in the Yankee blogosphere, and there are plenty of good writers to read out there. One of our favorites in the Yankee blogging world has been the Lohud Yankees Blog of Peter Abraham. Peter Abraham is a journalist for the Journal News, and his blog has grown very popular with the fans. Along with in game posts and updates, Peter has frequently given us exclusive interviews, insights, and audio of the Q & A sessions the media has with players. Some who read this blog may have stumbled across us from Peter Abraham's site since he was one of the first people to link to us.
Peter Abraham recently took a job for the Boston Globe, and will soon be taking his talent and energy to the Red Sox side of the rivalry. Red Sox fans don't know how lucky they are. It was Peter Abraham that actually inspired us to start this blog back in the winter of 2008. The way he mixed humor and sarcasm with the realities of the baseball world was what attracted us to his site, and helped mold our own approach when thinking about how we would author this blog.
The truth is, we are going to miss him. There are many great blogs to read out there, but losing this one hurts. We'll miss Peter Abraham, and we'll make sure to heckle him at whatever Boston blog he starts writing in the future. Good luck with everything Pete! I hope this move will prove beneficial for your career, and that you will find success in all you do! Don't forget about us out here!
