    have no sympathy for the terrorists and no interest in hearing about their reasons for murdering innocent people After awhile my anger turns to sadness I think about Adam Lewis the one person I knew who died in the Twin Towers Adam and I were classmates at Hamilton College part of the class of 1987 I didn t know Adam well enough to call him a friend but knew him well enough to realize that he was a good guy and a strong family man Like all of the other civilians who died that day he deserved better And then my sadness turns to a smile I think about the way that Americans responded to the tragedy So many firefighters medical personnel and policemen reported to Ground Zero on a day when they were not supposed to work They had no obligation to report but knew it was the right thing to do So many volunteers went there gave hours and hours of themselves in an effort to rescue whoever might have survived These were Americans at their finest One of those Americans was a former Yankee Frank Tepedino A veteran member of the New York Fire Patrol Tepedino was at home that day when he heard about the terrorist attacks He his son and two other firefighters immediately drove to the towers Even though they were coming from Long Island it took them four hours to reach the site By the time they arrived the towers had already collapsed Tepedino and the others did what they could searching the rubble for other potential survivors Moving debris opening manhole covers helping with food water and excavation Tepedino told the Syracuse Herald American in 2001 As they helped in the recovery efforts Tepedino and his friends worked in 24 hour shifts What began as a rescue mission eventually became a job of cleaning up once they realized that no other survivors would be found It was frustrating for Tepedino and the others knowing that the missing would not be found but they also knew that the cleanup had to be done Tepedino s rescue efforts put him in the spotlight for the first time since 1975 when he wrapped up a journeyman career with the Braves Originally drafted by the Orioles Tepedino was then selected by the Yankees in the Rule Five draft The Yankees loved his left handed swing envisioning him as a possible answer at first base But there were roadblocks at the position Mickey Mantle and Joe Pepitone early on and then Johnny Ellis and Ron Blomberg The Yankees switched him to the outfield but there was no room there either not with people like Roy White and Bobby Murcer holding down starting jobs As a result Tepedino never received even close to a full opportunity to play regularly in the Bronx He spent a good deal of time at Triple A Syracuse where he became one of the Chiefs most popular players Early in 1971 the Yankees finally gave Tepedino a reprieve sending him to the Brewers for strongboy Danny Walton who had enormous power but an alarming propensity for striking out The Brewers gave Tepedino a look at first base but he couldn t beat out veteran Johnny Briggs So the next spring the Brewers sold him back to the Yankees They used him exclusively as a pinch hitter and then used him as part of a package to acquire Pat Dobson from the Braves In 1973 Tepedino became part of the Braves celebrated bench brigade which was known as F Troop As Tepedino explained to The Sporting News F stands for fearless and faithful Playing as a backup first baseman and pinch hitter Tepedino hit 304 for manager Eddie Mathews He also had the opportunity to play with a fellow named Hank Aaron bookending a career that had seen him start his career playing with his boyhood idol Mickey Mantle Two years after leading F Troop Tepedino was out of baseball At the age of 27 Tepedino had to seek out a new career while continuing his battle with alcoholism Not only did Tepedino beat the bottle but he found himself doing worthy work as a fire fighter beginning a 30 plus year stint with the New York Fire patrol On September 11 Tepedino like thousands of other first responders became a hero It was still an awful day a day that brings with it so many bad memories But it was a day when people like Frank Tepedino showed us only their best

    of cynical and immoral New York City media types vs big hearted Midwesterners struck me as overly pat He frequently brings up petty grudges against other writers or media world denizens and he s too on the nose when writing about how baseball and the Saints will heal us all it s a theme that would have benefited from subtlety Still Karlen does a good job of chronicling the fascinating collection of individuals who cluster around the Saints a haven for nonconformists and whatever his flaws as a writer they don t prevent the charm of the team itself from coming through loud and clear Down on the Farm by Alex Belth September 7 2010 8 45 am No Comments If you are into following the Yankees minor leaguers peep what Greg Fertel is doing over at Pending Pinstripes Mike Axisa also does a good job over at River Ave and now Stephani Bee is adding to the conversation over at PB Diggum Bush Wackers by Alex Belth August 17 2010 10 54 am 7 Comments When you have a few extra minutes do yourself a favor and check out this excellent piece by Mike Ashmore beat writer for the Trenton Thunder It s about the less than glamorous life of a minor league ball player The minimum annual salary in Major League Baseball currently sits at 400 000 Meanwhile most players at the minor league level who haven t reached minor league free agency are lucky to make 10 000 over the course of a season a survey of players revealed that those in rookie ball make 1 250 1 300 a month while players in Triple A the highest level of the minors can make roughly 1 000 more per month while under the contracted amount I think the way things are today most people look at professional athletes and assume they re rolling in money said New York Yankees Senior Vice President of Baseball Operations Mark Newman And these guys are not Most players in the minor leagues some estimates have the number as high as 90 percent will not play in the big leagues For most dreams of a career at the highest level are nothing more than that just dreams Drawing by Robert Weaver 1962 Check It Out by Cliff Corcoran August 3 2010 2 04 pm 21 Comments I have a couple of pieces up on SI com today The first is my Rookie of the Year Awards Watch It was a frustrating column to write this week because of the glut of strong rookies in the National League and lack thereof in the American League though I squeezed in a lot of NL honorable mentions in the introduction Update I initially had an old column linked The link is now fixed to this week s Awards Watch The second is my look at the top waiver trade pickups of the Wild Card era No Yankees make my top 5 though the botched Pat Listach trade in 1996 yielded Graeme Lloyd who after struggling mightily down the stretch got some huge outs in the postseason as the Yankees won their first championship under Joe Torre Other notable Yankee waiver trades were the returns of Mike Stanley in 1997 and Luis Sojo in 2000 and the dumping of Mariano Duncan and addition of Rey Sanchez as a second base solution in 97 Meanwhile Sterling Hitchcock went 5 1 with a 3 78 ERA for the Cardinals after the Yankees traded him to St Louis in August 2003 Elsewhere the latest edition of Kevin Goldstein s Future Shock at Baseball Prospectus kicks off with good words on a pair of red hot Yankee prospects Dellin Betances RHP Yankees High A Tampa 6 IP 1 H 0 R 1 BB 11 K Of Betances 11 starts this year eight of them could arguably be described as dominant with none more so than last night s when Betances retired the last 14 batters he faced nine via the strikeout With a fastball that is all the way back 94 98 mph and control that we ve never seen before the 22 year old has whiffed 68 over 57 innings while allowing just 31 hits and walking 15 Only an ugly ttrack record when it comes to staying healthy prevents him from being labeled with an elite tag Brandon Laird 3B Yankees Triple A Scranton Wilkes Barre 4 for 4 2 HR 2 3 R 2 RBI It s been a darn good year overall for the Yankee farm system and one of the brightest points of light has been Laird who entered the year as a nice little hitter with some upside and is now considered one of the better offensive prospects in the system After batting 291 355 523 in the Eastern League you couldn t have asked for a better Triple A debut but much like Jesus Montero it s hard to figure out where his big league future lies if he remains a Yankee Observations From Cooperstown Call ups Helmets and Lookalikes by Bruce Markusen September 4 2009 12 10 pm 19 Comments Let s file this in the category of taking nothing for granted Even with a sizeable lead over the Red Sox I m happy to see that the Yankees haven t waited for Scranton s Triple A playoff season to end before bringing some reinforcements to New York Francisco Cervelli Ramiro Pena Mark Melancon Edwar Ramirez Mike Dunn and Jon Albaladejo represent the first wave of call ups giving Joe Girardi additional options for the final month of the regular season As painful as it is for fans of the minor league affiliates to hear the priorities and needs of the major league team should always come first Given the frequent rest needed by Jorge Posada and the semi ludicrous pitching limitations being placed on Joba Chamberlain the Yankees can use some bolstering in the areas of pitching and catching depth Once
