Dear Yankee fans,
I know that I am only a few hits away from the all time Yankee hits record, but please stop and realize that all I want to do is play every game as I have since I began with this time. Yes I am nearing a record, but I am also trying to lead our team to number 27, a record more important than any record that I could set. I am so glad that I have all of you to watch and cheer for us, but please understand that you must treat every AB like it is just another AB and not the last out in the World Series. I hope to see you all in the stands as we make the playoffs and win number 27.
