Ten years later: A look back at the 2006 Yankees

The 2005 season was a disappointment for the Yankees. They were ousted from the playoffs in the first round by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and even worse, the ensuing offseason was up in the air because general manager Brian Cashman, a free-agent-to-be, was expected by most to bolt after the battles he had been having with owner George M. Steinbrenner’s so-called “Tampa...

Could the Redsocks be stuck with a puny Big Papi?

Two years ago, Yankee fans were offered one basic reason to root for their team: The farewell season for Mr. Derek Jeter. We got to thank and bestow gifts upon the man who led us back from nearly 20 years wandering the desert - (a lost exile we may only now be revisiting.) Our month of September became a Seinfeld nostaligia marathon on ME-TV. The last day in Boston, instead...

Where Does It Say That Money Is The Answer?

I grew up a Mets fans surrounded by Yankees fans. But since my childhood was in the 1980s, those Yankee fans weren’t nearly as loud about the greatness of their franchise at that time. Fast-forward to the 1990s and Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams and Joe Torre. Mix in a dash of unfulfilled promise, like the hope/hype of Generation K, and you get the foundation for a fan base convinced...

That Eric Show Christmas Album You Never Knew You Wanted

Eric Show never wanted to be become a footnote to baseball history. But, thanks to two pitches…he did. On September 11, 1985, while with the San Diego Padres, Show would surrender Pete Rose’s record-breaking 4192nd career hit. Then, two years later, it was an errant 90-mile-per-hour fastball that caught future Hall of Famer Andre Dawson in the face and the vicious bench-clearing...

The Yankees penchant for retiring numbers extends through their farm system... except when it doesn't

Last night, my posse navigated historic Route 5 and its walking dead deer herds to watch the Staten Island Baby Yankees play the Nationals of Auburn - aka Attica East. I noticed two things:1. Recent Yankee 7th round draft pick Jhalan Jackson, a free-swinging RF, looks like an NFL running back in a Google programmers' ping pong tournament. He went 0 for 5. Didn't matter. Looks good...
