As you may remember, I was a bit distraught when it was announced in January that Kim Jones would not be returning as the clubhouse reporter for the YES Network this season. Her replacement was announced to say, and dare I say I think she will be more than enough to help me get over the loss of my precious Kimmy. Say, "HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!" to Meredith Marakovits.
She's worked for SNY and with the Philadelphia 76ers and Phillies, so to get to graduate from the scuzz heap that is the NL East to the big leagues in Yankeeland is obviously a huge upgrade for her. I don't know how I'm going to feel about her taking a pie after a walk-off win this year, if the Yankees are dumb enough to try to keep that tradition going, but if she can give a good interview I think she and I will get along just fine. She's a peach, Jerry. A peach.
