Okay. I know some people seem to think I'm not doing a good job as captain, because the team has been playing crappy. And I know maybe I haven't been as supportive as usual to the new players and stuff because I've been so depressed lately. I mean, it's hard for me to mentor Robinson Cano when I can't look at him without remembering Soriano and then just wanting to burst into tears, because what the hell, Soriano was awesome and we traded him. And maybe I keep to myself a little more around some of the free agent guys, but you know, they all have their own posses and stuff, and nobody can talk to Sheff or K-B anyway, especially when we're losing and they're extra pissed off all the time.
But that is not the point. It has come to my attention that maybe some people think they could do a better job as captain, or think that they are a better player than me even though, hello, who's playing shortstop for the best baseball team ever, ME, while some other people haven't ever won a World Series. But that isn't the point either. I was talking to Tino and Jorge the other night and we all think that the team would be playing much better if everyone on it knew what it really is to *be* a Yankee - not just, like, any asshole who George buys, but a real 1996-2000 Yankee. But what is it to be a Championship Yankee? What is it to be a Dynasty Mystique Super Yankee? We decided to make a list. And here it is:
