There is a new neighborhood taking shape in the Bronx. Some say it’s near Highbridge and others think it’s closer to Mott Haven and some even believe it’s climbing straight out of Concourse Village.

Everyone agrees on the name.

“Rasnerville,” shot Javier, who lives on Walton Avenue. “It’s an up-and-coming area.”

Darrell Rasner’s rotation-stabilizing 2-0 record and 3.00 ERA – including yesterday’s 5-2 win in Detroit – have sparked interest in the neighborhood.

“The streets will be full of yuppies pretty soon,” Javier said. “They will want to turn our one-bedroom walk-ups into luxury condos and make Rasnerville into the new Eastside.”

That won’t be easy.

“We’re not going down without a fight,” Javier promised. “People around here are a lot like Rasner: tough, determined, courageous and maybe a little stubborn, too.”

That’s a winning attitude.
