Right or wrong, the Ty Hensley attack has me remembering Brien Taylor

In an alternative universe - remarkably close to here - the greatest all-time Yankee lefty is a fellow named... Whitey Ford. (Nope, some things don't change.) But the runner-up, freshly bronzed last summer in Monument Park, is the great Brien Taylor. Sherman, set the Wayback for 1991: The Yankees are terrible, the worst-run organization in humanity.  George Steinbrenner is a national...

The Case for Mel Harder’s Hall of Fame Candidacy

The latest installment in this series takes us away from the glory days of the 1990’s to the Tribe’s ace during the mid-1930’s and architect of the Tribe’s pitching success during the 40’s and 50’s. Mel Harder pitched with the Indians from 1928-1947, breaking into the big leagues when he was just 18 years old. His 20 years in an Indians’ uniform is the most of any player...

Yes, the Giants are a dynasty

Out of the numerous somewhat undermining narratives that a World Series will produce, perhaps the biggest one from this particular Fall Classic is whether or not the San Francisco Giants are now a dynasty having won three titles in the last five seasons. The answer is yes. I almost want to end the article right there, but just to support that hard-to-come-up with theory, here...

Yes, the Giants are a dynasty

Out of the numerous somewhat undermining narratives that a World Series will produce, perhaps the biggest one from this particular Fall Classic is whether or not the San Francisco Giants are now a dynasty having won three titles in the last five seasons. The answer is yes. Here’s a look at the teams who have done what the Giants have done: Philadelphia Athletics: 1910-1913 Boston...

Tiant Discovered By Tribe, Legendary Worldwide In Baseball

Bobby Avila’s contributions to Indians baseball are numerous. He won a batting title for the Indians in 1954, helping lead the team to what was then a record of 111 wins and the American League pennant. But one of his contributions to the Tribe and to baseball is his discovery of a Cuban boy who took after his father, one of the great pitchers in Cuban baseball and the Negro Leagues...

Watch Johnny Damon get beaned by former teammate during Yankees Old-Timers' game

Old-Timers' Day is a tried-and-true Yankee tradition that honors some of the great players to wear the famous pinstripes. Seeing so many Yankees legends -- past and present --gathering to share old stories is one of the things that still makes it special after so many years. Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, Rickey Henderson, Reggie Jackson... Johnny Damon? Well maybe he's not considered...

Brock and Game 7 winner Bob Gibson were among members of the team that beat the Yankees who were honored Monday before St. Louis opened an interleague series against New York. A half-century ago,...

From Washington Heights To Flushing, Betances Comes Full Circle With Yankees

I have always admired teams that can scout and sign players who are truly home-grown. The Atlanta Braves are famous for doing this. Think Atlanta-born Jeff Francoer and, more recently, Athens-born Brian McCann. The Yankees have had much less success signing players from in and around New York City. There are a few, however. Two that come to mind are Lou Gehrig and Whitey Ford.  One...

Yankee Greats – Whitey Ford

Larry Noyes New York Yankees Writer My first six articles were on hitters. Lets look at a pitcher this time. Whitey Ford is arguably the greatest pitcher in Yankees history. Here’s a look at number 16. Edward Charles “Whitey” Ford was born October 21, 1928 in Astoria, NY, a section of Queens. He grew up in Astoria, just a few miles from Yankee Stadium. Whitey graduated from...

Seventy-Nine Years Ago The Babe Came Back

On this date in 1935, George Herman Ruth came back to Boston—signing with the Braves. After being released by The Evil Ones, the Babe embarked on his final year wearing a Boston uniform. He hit his last six home runs as a Brave—clouting three (including his 714th) in one game in May. That final blast is said to be the longest home run ever hit in Pittsburgh's Forbes Field. He...

And now... the two All-Time Coolest Yankees ever created by God or Bill Nye, the Science Guy

I recognize that this is subjective. I know that every Yankee fan has personal faves. One fan's Wally Pipp is another's Lenn Sakata. I see your pain. Don't cry for me, Constantino. But... y'know what...It would uncool if I didn't just say, fukkit. Here they are, comrades, Number 2 and Number 1. 2.Derek JeterWhere to start?
