The Best Of The Best: Building a Championship (A »

Creating a championship team has never been more difficult than it is now in professional sport. Annual play-off contenders in all sports are working hard to continue the trend and make important post-season revenue to pursue or re-sign important team components. Dave Hall will examine the most successful builders of champions in each of the [...]

For the Yankees, Roy Halladay Is Just Johan Santana »

Roy Halladay rumors and discussions are all the rage right now, so the thought of dealing for him has been on my mind. I'm sure you can guess that I am against a deal for Halladay, unless it comes at the right price. You see, dealing for Roy Halladay is exactly what the Yankees didn't do after 2007 when Johan Santana was on the table. From [...]

Items From the 2009 WS That Should Be In The Yankees »

Recently I has the opportunity to visit the New York Yankees' 2009 World Series exhibit in their Hall of Fame. There were several great pieces of history at display in the exhibit. There was Matsui's bat, Rivera's hat, Damon's spikes, and many more items. But here are some items that may have missed the cut for the exhibit...Begin Slideshow

Bob Sheppard Puts Down The Mic For The Yankees »

"Now batting for the New York Yankees, number two, Derek Jeter, number two." These are the unforgettable words that stay in the minds of fans at Yankee Stadium. Those words have been spoken by nobody other than the Voice of God. Bob Sheppard has announced that he will not return to the microphone as the P.A. announcer for the New York Yankees. [...]

The New York Yankees Should Not Pursue Expensive »

While some writers might think decent relievers are worthy of MVP votes, I tend to disagree. OK, to be fair, it was just one writer. Still, how anyone could think Jeremy Affeldt was the 10th most valuable player in the National League is something I find to be utterly ridiculous. OK, what does this have to do with anything? Well, every season [...]

Mickey Mantle’s Final Seasons Were Better Than »

Mickey Mantle's last solid season was 1964, although he did fairly well in 1966. In 1964, Mickey hit .303 with 35 home runs, 111 RBIs, and a .423 on base average. The 1966 season was not as good, when Mickey hit .288 with 23 home runs, and that was followed by two sub par seasons, after which Mickey retired. There is a tendency to excuse or even [...]

Derek Jeter Wins 2009 Gold Glove Award: Not as Crazy »

I realize that Derek Jeter won the 2009 Gold Glove award for shortstops a few weeks ago, and this article may seem dated. Honestly, I admit that I've just been a little lazy. But part of it stems from the fact that I didn't want to get into this mess just yet.  I think I'm ready now, however, and before you comment on this article, please [...]

Shelley Duncan’s Free Agency Offers a Long »

Shelley Duncan is finally free. After nine years of indentured servitude in the New York Yankees’ farm system, Duncan is a free agent for the first time. Unfortunately, Duncan is no longer the long-ball hitting prospect who was drafted in the second-round of the 2001 draft. He’s now a 30-year-old with just 68 games and 146 at-bats in [...]

Triple Crown Winner Lou Gehrig: No MVP »

There wasn't a murmur of protest. In 1934, Lou Gehrig won the American League's Triple Crown, batting .363, hitting a career high 49 home runs, and driving in 165 runs. Detroit Tigers' playing manager, Mickey Cochrane, was voted the American League's Most Valuable Player. The Tigers Won the Pennant Mickey Cochrane batted .320, hit two home [...]
