It’s the end of an era. The best Yankees beat reporter, Pete Abraham, has handed in his resignation letter and is headed to The Boston Globe. While this won’t curse the Yankees, it will surely curse The Journal News, the Gannett Newspaper of Westchester, Rockland and Putnam counties in New York.

Over the next 86 years, the Boston Globe will come back from near-bankruptcy to win 26 Pulitzer prizes, twice as many as any other newspaper, while Gannett papers experience a Pulitzer-drought until they hire the offspring of Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz, who will later be disgraced for plagiarism during their tenure with Gannett’s Spanish language newspapers.
