History was made!

Welcome back! 

Let me start by saying that even tho i cant vote in the united states yet (I’m a Dominican citizen and US Permanent Resident) i’m really happy to say that i was in this country when the first african american was elected president of this great country. Barrack Obama had a very strong campaign and i honestly believe that it came down to President Obama being more demographically appealing to our generation. it was great to see the voter turn out in the United States because it shows how much the people care and how much the wanted their voice to be heard. 
Moving on to so baseball news. We got on a little funk after being in first place we lost 8 games in a row and now sit 5 games behind the leader. when we pitched we didn’t hit and when we hit we didn’t pitch! It happens in baseball you just try to prevent it from happening frequently. I’ve started to see better results in my last couple of outings. i’ve been stretched out to 2 innings now and hopefully i can get some longer outing before is all set and done. My  Yankee teammates are playing very well . kevin Russo is still red hot . i believe he has hit in 14 straight games (GO RUSSO). Ajax has continue he strong play, Hommie (J Marquez) is not in the starting rotation and pitch 5 scoreless innings yesterday. Phil has continue to work on his game and has pitched very well over his last couple of starts. Again I want to point out that is not all about results while we out here.
Halloween was a blast. I have to some great pictures but unfortunately I havent had a chance to put transfer them from my camera into my computer but i will put them up over the weekend! aiden loved his chicken costume and I not posses pictures to brive him once he gets older hahahahaha. we have 2 weeks left in this league and by no means are we out of a little playoff action. I will post those pictures in the next cuple of days so look for them! talk to ya soon!

    I have a friend that is able to get me some inside information on Yankee prospects, thanks to his friendship with Dellin Betances. But it’s great to hear from somebody that is actually playing alongside some of those guys.

    Thanks a lot, and good luck.

    I have a friend that knows Dellin Betances, so I get some inside information regarding Yankee prospects. But to hear about them from a fellow team mate is even better. Thanks, and keep up the good work.

    When the yankees traded for you I was so excited. I think that they made a great choice. While you have been injured, you are still a huge asset to this organization. I know you love to start but I think you would be tremendous in the ‘pen. I am a school teacher and hope that you unbelievable inspiration to kids. My kids often see me checking your stats and I tell them your story of making it from the Bronx to the bigs. Do you have any good advice for me to give to the kids I teach. I know you have no idea who I am but I do want to help the kids. I am in a poor, country area in southern VA but the Yankees are loved more than ever. Thank you so much! Kyle–Krosch@mcpsweb.org

    Yes humberto we made history, but Obama has said on many occasions that athletes should not be role models for our children and he is righ, but still would Obama have been elected President if Jackie Robinson had retaliated the first time he heard racial slur in 1947, I don’t know. We need to remember that Robinson stayed in substandard hotels and got his food at the back door of restaurant and unable to sit with his teammate. Yes He was a role model . Humberto I hope you know your are lucky your are playing baseball this date not in 1947. I enjoy this page and i hope other athletes taking time off to do this, we are learning more about you, the big kid from the Bronx, a family guy. I was very proud that you represent your country in the All Star Game, that was very nice of you. Good luck and get healthy
