Just got off the phone with Kramer, my younger brother who pitches--well, now, I guess used to pitch--for Barton College and the Wilson Tobs. Dude's signing a contract with the Yankees tonight. He'll start pitching for Staten Island sometime later this week.
So awesome, so surreal. So freakin' great.
Now, I know that lots of you think the dude's a huge stud. And, well, I guess he sorta is now. Throwing 91-93 mph on the corners at the knees, with two dirty off-speed pitches -- yeah, that's studly.
But before he was a stud, he (at right in the picture below) looked like this:
(And yeah, that's me to the left.)
Congrats, bro. Heck of an adventure ahead of you. Can't wait to see how it plays out.
