BREAKING: Yankees Sign Falcone

Really great news from the New York Yankees today as the Bombers have Joey Falcone to a minor league contract.

The all-time great Columbia slugger and Iraq/Afgan war vet will join the Yanks' Gulf Coast League affiliate in rookie ball and should be in the lineup as soon as tonight.

It won't be easy for Falcone as a 29-year-old rookie playing with a bunch of 18, 19, and 20-year-olds. But he's battle tested in more ways than one.

It's certainly good-sounding news. Nice step for the Boretti-coached Lions program too. Can only wish him well and that he has a good time during his likely 1-2 year career in the minors (to be realistic).

Richard, I disagree about your prediction for Falcone. First there was Columbia Lou (Gehrig) with the Yankees, now there's going to be Columbia Joe, with I think 4-5 good years ahead as a MLB DH. The New York media will love it.

Either way, he's a great young man and may he have success in whatever he does.
