Happy 4th of July weekend Yankees fans. It’s a big weekend for the Bombers as they head to Chitty Field for the Subway Series. The Yankees have been destroying the National League so far today so I expect them to take at least two of three from them this weekend.
It’s also the Boss, George Steinbrenner’s birthday on Monday and the anniversary of Dave Righetti’s no hitter back in 1983. I’m sure there have been many other memorable 4th’s for the Yankees, but those are the best two I can think of off the top of my head.
Anyway, I am off for the weekend so this will be my last post until Tuesday. There are a few of Mike Sommer’s Classic Yankees series coming up starting with Bernie Williams today, Gil MacDougald on Saturday and Allie Reynolds on Sunday.
You can also use this as an open thread to discuss anything that happens over the weekend. This weekend’s starters are Ivan Nova, Bartolo Colon, and Freddy Garcia so obviously Colon is back. Jeter is expected back Monday unless he has a setback this weekend.
See you Tuesday.
