Remembering the 2001 World Series


Most Yankee fans have mixed emotions and feelings on the 2001 World Series. It was the first time the Yankees lost a World Series since 1981. We had won four of the last five championships up until this point with just two outs away from winning our fourth in a row, but what made this series memorable was the events that took place less then two months back.

Paul O’Neill and Why The Yankees Should Retire his Number.


The Yankees have 15 numbers retired (the number 8 was retired twice for Yogi Berra and Bill Dickey), the most by any team in Major League Baseball.  Add to the fact that Derek Jeter’s number 2 and Joe Torre’s number 6 most likely will be retired one day and you will never see another Yankee wear a single digit jersey again. There are a few Yankees who can make a case for having their number retired and Paul O’Neill is one of them.

Mattingly Q & A with a fan


October 4th, 1995

Game 2 Division Series

Don Mattingly follows Ruben Sierra’s home run with one of his own in the bottom of the 6th inning to give the Yankees their first lead of the night. In what would be considered one of the greatest games in division series history, clocking in at 5 hours and 12 minutes (was also the longest playoff game at the time), that Mattingly home run is what will always be remembered by one Yankee fan.

2013 Yankees Prediction




I’m going to try and project what the Starting lineup is going to produce this year. Its very difficult to predict what will happen because injuries do occur, but its still worth a shot to try and predict the production. I will also try to predict some of the statistics for the Starting Pictures and Mariano Rivera as well.  I have left off middle relievers and bench players.
