Who is this Yankees player and why is he a cautionary tale for a current New York athlete?
Update: We have a winner! My old friend Chris Coyle got the two-parter. It is indeed Wally Pipp and the current NY athlete with cause to worry is Carmelo Anthony, who might want to work on his defense and passing skills while he’s out. Jeremy Lin is taking over! The only thing theological about all this is that the prize is a copy of Daniel Kirk’s new book, which is on its way to Chicago!
