Thanks for the memories

Too bad your ugly mug won't be playing in Anaheim for the next eight years - for half a season, you gave the Angels a shot in the arm. Besides your offensive contributions in the second half of the 2008 season, one thing that impressed me was your athleticism at first base.

Can't really say 'good luck' to you in New York - but maybe you are following in your childhood idol's footsteps [Don Mattingly, as I have read]. You'll probably put up similar numbers as you have in your Major League career and as professional as any modern day ballplayer can be, you won't be the type to crumble under the New York spotlight.

To everyone else - Merry Christmas, happy holidays and may the new year, bring a new hope.
