IT IS FINALLY OVER!!! The test that I've been studying for since November is finally over. I took a look a high school back in October, and I loved it. It specialized in writing and even broadcasting (which is exactly what I want to do when I'm older) so I spent an extra 4 hours on math and language arts every week since November. I don't get the results back until the first week of March, so all I can do is wait. In the meantime, I'll be catching up on blogging. I had a period of a few months where I only scratched out a few posts, and I definitely want to make up for that missed time. Over Christmas, I managed to sell a few legos, and with that money I bought this off of someone on blowout:
Aroldis Chapman/Mike Leake 2013 Allen and Ginter 1/1! I saw this on blowout for a very fair price, and since the Yankees had just acquired Chapman I decided to jump on the deal. I forget that Leake is on the card, because all I really care about is the Chapman side. This is probably the best patch I own, and I absolutely love the card. The Yankees bullpen now consists of Andrew Miller, Dellin Betances, Aroldis Chapman, and Chasen Shreve who some people forget about. Shreve had a stellar first half, pitching to an under 2 ERA; after the all star break it fell apart for Shreve, but I do think he can rebound in 2016. The Yankees bullpen is basically telling the opposing team to go home after 6 innings. The question is how Girardi will use them. All in one game? Will they share the closer role? I think in some situations they will be used all in one game, but other than that I'm not too sure. Either way, I'm happy to have Chapman on the Yankees!
Thank you for reading!
