Contest Winner

25 01 2008

Congrats to giambino0522 for guessing my favorite quote from The Office which is, “I’m an early bird and a night owl. So I’m wise and I have worms.” I think it threw a lot of people off that my favorite quote came from Michael and not my favorite character Dwight.

Giambino0522 please email the contest coordinator at kennybarto@gmail.com with the address you want the prize mailed to. Hope you guys had fun.

I had no shot on that one, probably because my favorite show is The Wire. But I am starting to get into the office more, the original version was a lot darker but not as good.

Since you like th office so much, check out this site. It was designed by the web club (including me) and the video club made the videos. They are short clips of pictures at the school i go to. They are to the tune of the theme song for the office. Go Yanks!!!!

Hahaha great contest Phil! I definitely thought your favorite quote would have come from Dwight. Michael is a quote machine though.

great idea for a contest, phil.

I have a question for you. Last season, who on the team did you hang out with the most?

Congrads to them, yeah I assumed it would be from Dwight. Either way the Office is a great show. I thought my time waisted watching it would finally come in handy lol, guess not.

I personally don’t think it’s fair that Jason Giambi won the contest, shouldnt there be some sort of rule against current Yankee players taking part in it

Haha, just kidding, congrats giambino

25 01 2008
petewillett

kindof random, but what are Cano and Cabrera like in real life? Are they truly best friends or is it media-hyped a la Clemens-Pettitte? Also, how hard would you say Melky throws? It’s got to be near 90…

25 01 2008

phi,
don’t lose ur humility. alot of players arent this cool to fans. when u win 20 games and become an ace, remember we’re all just people and we appreciate your conversing with us. i have a new favorite yanks.

Awesome give a way, that was real cool of you to do. Hope you do that again and I look forward to reading throughout the season….

Phil, you are a true winner. Keep it up and you will replace Shelley as my fave… though there may be repercussions for that

I know “the office” quote contest is over, but here’s one of my favorites (its from a “recent” episode).

Toby: We had so many smores I finally had to say, ‘No more smores! No more smores!’

25 01 2008
spanishtom

Congrats to the winner… I’m almost as die-hard of “The Office” fan as I love the Yankees. So the next contest like this is mine!! Lol

I’m ashamed to admit that I just found this blog, Phil… But I look forward to reading every word and participating when appropriate ;-)

Hey Phil, I was just at a lecture in Jersey with Brian Cashman and Theo Epstein as the speakers, and Cash said that “My strong recommendation is that we stick with our young pitching and keep it in-house.” Everyone cheered and he smiled as well. So you are in the clear buddy. Im so pumped having you in our rotation for good and now I can finally sleep at night.

First: Congrats, Giambino, and I too am a rarity: the female baseball fan.

Second:
Phil,

I just saw your comments on the official Yankee website, and I have to say that I’m not amazed, but, as a fan, I am entirely appreciative. I don’t think any player has ever been this thoughtful and open to their fanbase without some self-serving agenda. The fact that you’re so willing to let the millions of Yankee fans around the world know you, Phil Hughes, to such a degree is beyond wonderful.

I’m 19, and I’m completely bowled over by just how level-headed you are in the face of all this madness. I know that a) if I played on a professional baseball team, let alone the Yankees, b) had a near flawless minor league track record and 6.1 no-hit ML innings to my credit and c) had this many people fawning over me, I’d probably have an ego roughly the size of Eurasia.

To make a long story short: thank you for sharing your life with us, and thank you for not being even 1/100th as egomaniacal as many of us would be in your position. ;)

26 01 2008
Kaitlin

Oh, and I have one more recommendation for your blog:

There’s a feature on Bronx Banter (Baseball Toaster) where they take a card and talk not only about the card, but the career of the player on it, and their context on their team. It’s all Yankees (obviously), but you could do it with all sorts of different players. I know you really like baseball cards, and you probably have a pretty sizeable collection. You wouldn’t have to write about their careers. What about, instead, you write about what made you pick up the card? Why do you like it? What’s the story of you and the card?

I collect postcards, and every one has a story. Baseball cards have statistical stories written on them, as well as personal stories for the collector. I think it would be amazing to hear about your own collection of cards and what it means to you.

I’m so happy a woman won this!!! Go ladies!

I don’t think female baseball fans, esp female Yankee fans, are all that rare. I’ve loved the boys in pinstripes all my life. There are a few Yankee meetup groups (on meetup.com) that seem to be half men/half women. We go to games and get together in Manhattan to watch games during the season. And we love the game of baseball we’re not just salivating over those fine young men. :)

Beth (insane female Yankee fan).

Hey Phil, if you like comedy shows you should definitely check out It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia! Every person I introduce to this show ends up becoming obsessed with it, and with good reason. It’s pretty much Seinfeld on crack.

26 01 2008
barroidbonds

Congrats giambino0522 for winning the contest. Phil your definitely one of my favorite players now (and I’m not even a Yanks fan) by doing this blog and interacting with all your fans. Hope you can show everyone what you can do in a full season without any injury setting you back.

Phil, Good luck this year. I just read the new york post report of Mr Cashmans fund raiser last night. I hope he keeps you and the other young guns the Yanks have.

Hey Bronxballs, you forget me in the chick category. :(

Phil….loved hearing Cash last night (though I had to listen to Theo too)….he’s behind you guys all the way.

I’m sure you will have a great career anywhere but we want you here in NY. We love ya!

energywins08

if you’re a fan of the office you really need to give the show “arrested development.” everyone I know who is a fan of the office has loved arrested development. watch the first couple of the first season and i’m sure you’ll love it…its a show that you can watch an episode 10 times and still find something new and funny each time…and its a 162 + 11 game season!

thanks for the contest…hope this writer’s strike ends soon and we get some new office!

26 01 2008

Hey…speaking of the office and dwight, have you seen that nbc is having an auction with some office stuff in it. They’re selling Dwight’s bobblehead signed by Rainn Wilson and one of Dwight’s ugly gold short-sleeved shirt. Pretty funny stuff.

Phil,
as you can see from my log in, huge Yanks fan and big into the history of this franchise. I have to tell you I have not been this excited about the future of this team since Jeter and Mo, and Bernie, and Posada hit the scene!!
You, Joba, Kennedy, plus all the other great arms in the system that dont get mentioned, Sanchez,Olendorff to name a few. I never though I would say this but, NO SANTANA PLEASE!!! I I think if you took a pole of all Yanks fans we agree. I want to see you guys take us to the next level for years to come!! Good Luck Phil, just do what you do!!!

27 01 2008

Wow, this whole Bern Baby Bern vs $Man feud is getting out of hand. Funny that Pete A is the only one on to it. Love that guy, Abraham. Even if he’s a Pats fan !

The contest was a great idea, Phil. I’m surprised you don’t want to hang on to that ball though! Then again, I’m sure you’ll have plenty more postseason wins to come.

Phil,

I have two small kids that are 5 and 3 and took them to see their first game last year with you on the mound. I grew up to the likes of the Goose and the Gator. I am so looking forward to my kids having memories of you, Joba, and Ian. I hope and wish you tremendous luck, the three of you seem like such goo human beings and this sport is in such need of personalities like you. Keep up the good work, we’ll be rooting for you at the games!

GO GIANTS!!

27 01 2008
nydiehard79

Hello Phil I just wanted to tell you I’m the biggest diehard fan of the Yankees and I have been since the days of Donnie Baseball and Rickey Henderson, and Dave Winfield, and I feel you are the most talented pitcher I’ve seen come out of the bronx since a young Andy Petitte , I pray to god that they don’t trade you for Johan Santana because to me you Joba, and Ian are the future of this franchise and I for one don’t want to see any of you guys go. I know talent when I see it and I’ve seen you pitch in 10 minor league games and 3 major league games and you have it and joba and ian also have keep it up man I’m proud as hell these days to call myself a Yankee fan and keep friggin rockin to all that kick ass rock and metal bro love ya man!!!!

Phil –
Found your blog through Pete Abraham’s blog. Great info – especially that Q&A session.

If you like the US version of the Office, you might want to check out the British version, with Ricky Gervais. As the Brits would say, it’s brilliant

Two quick points:
How is Chris Garcia doing in his recovery from TJS and that knee injury? Is he in Tampa right now?

Alan Horne and Jeff Marquez must be pretty excited for 2008 – it sounds like both guys will get a chance to shine during spring training. Seems like both guys might get a shot in the Bronx soon – in the pen, or maybe even as spot starters in case of injuries. Any advice for either guy?

27 01 2008
riverwolf2005

Congrats on the AMAZING piece of Yankeebilia. VERY nice of Phil to offer up such a cool piece of his young career to a fan. It is great to see pro athletes who TRUELY appreciate their fans.

Phil i used a Waiver on you in Fantasy baseball last season and have plans to maybe draft you in this upcoming draft….What kind of season do you think you are going to have?

Phil hows it going neat idea i just dumped my myspace account this is a safer way with my girlfriend (no drama with other chicks) Well hope you get to pitch when you come over to california (anaheim is closer to me) will be thinking of way get attention on the big sceen above the field!

Here’s another Office quote just for fun:

“Actually, it’s polite to arrive early. And smart. Only really good friends show up early. Ergo de facto, go to a party early, become a really good friend.”

Have a great day bro.

28 01 2008

Phil,

Are there personal statistical goals that you set for yourself? Will you sit down with Dave Eiland and Joe Girardi and discuss what is desired/expected of the upcoming season?

I think this is great what you are doing with this blog. It’s only been a short time since you have made it and it’s already exciting to read.

Congratulations Giambino for winning the contest. Hope to see more contests along the road!

I don’t know if it’s possible, but Phil, a great giveaway would be All Star or Home Run Derby tickets. Just a thought.

Phil, I’d just like to let you know that all this Santana junk has made me appreciate and covet you in pinstripes all the more.

I can’t wait for you to show the league what you are all about this year!

29 01 2008
becca3

Phil,
This is a great site. My question is. How you feel about the Red Sox? There are a lot of Yankee fans that hate the Red Sox. I have read some books about the rivarly and it seems that some people of the management share those feelings.

29 01 2008
