Sunday was a pretty busy day for me today so good friend of the blog Mike Sommer (you can read more from Mike here) stepped up with a few posts from his Classic Yankees series. In case you missed it, he has already written plenty of these. Here is the list. Jacob Ruppert (as owner 1914-1936) Miller Huggins (1918-1929) Bob ...
The Yankees have two HOF second basemen in previous Classic Yankees profiles Tony Lazzeri and Joe Gordon, and have an All-Star right now in Robbie Cano. If you had to fill out the top five second basemen in Yankees history, one of the five would be Willie Randolph. Randolph, born in SC but a Brooklyn native (Tilden ...
It’s hard seeing legends retire. 2010 saw the last of Andy Pettitte in a Yankees uniform, and it looks as if 2011 will be the last of Jorge Posada. 2012 could see the last of Mariano Rivera, and then down the road eventually Father Time will catch up to Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez. All too ...

Sometimes, in watching a game, I get tired of the bombastic announcers. You know the kind, the ones who are all “shtick,” no substance, who think that we are watching the game to see and hear them instead of the game itself. It’s times like those that I miss the old NBC “Game of the ...
If I asked you about a Yankee who once played for Cleveland, who wore #9 for the Yankees, who was brought to the Yankees because he was a dead pull hitter whose swing was perfect for Yankee Stadium, who didn’t hit much for average but instead hit for power, and who led the league in ...
You wouldn’t think someone who hit .406 one year and who won two Triple Crowns would have NO MVP awards to show for those three years, but that is exactly what happened to Ted Williams. The “Splendid Splinter” did win the MVP award in 1946 and 1949, but he lost to DiMaggio and the streak ...
