Jesus Montero has ability and youth on his side to become a legitimate power threat for the Yankees. How good will he be? Two all-time New York catchers, Mike Piazza and Jorge Posada, could provide the measuring stick.
On August 2nd, 1979 Jorge Posada was two weeks shy of his 8th birthday and I’m guessing had not a clue who Thurman Munson was. But today, exactly 32 years since the tragic death of the Yankee Captain, Posada shares a bond with Munson.
For some time now, various lists have been compiled ranking or rating the greatest of Yankees. In light of Jeter’s landmark accomplishment, we would like to look into where he ranks among the Yankee immortals.
Seems you can’t put an MLB star on trial without a mistrial. Barry Bonds and former Yankees star Roger Clemens remain perfectly bookended, each with seven major awards, one mistrial and no guilty verdict assured of sticking.
As Derek Jeter approaches 3,000 hits, the landmark has little bearing on his baseball legacy as possibly the most dominant winner in the game’s history.
It is a day when multi millionaires prance around the baseball field like European royalty on a polo field. To keep perspective on a game that America continues to love, it is important to look back on the better experiences of watching major league baseball.
Yogi Berra is most often remembered for his earnest and unintentionally hilarious views on life, but his baseball acumen was legendary, according to someone who is fairly well versed on the subject.
Derek Jeter admits reaching 3,000 hits is constantly on his mind. It’s unavoidable with everyone talking about it. And he also knows there are only four games left on the Yankees’ current homestand before they head out for a six-game road trip.
Yogi Berra never ceases to amaze me. Yogi and his wife Carmen continue to share, in their humble, unassuming way, their passion and energies with so many people and causes, so that “everyone in America can be what they want to be.”
Yogi Berra was reunited with a piece of baseball history on Wednesday when a collector presented him with a game-worn jersey. Big deal, you say?
The 85-year-old Hall of Famer was at George Steinbrenner Field on Friday for the Yankees spring training game against Atlanta, one day after he tripped and fell in the clubhouse.
The Yankees say Yogi Berra has been released from a hospital after tripping and falling in the clubhouse before a spring training game.
Yankees ace CC Sabathia is feeling stronger after losing 25 pounds during the offseason. “My stamina, especially coming out of the bullpen and going straight to the mound, I feel good,” Sabathia said Thursday.
Andy Pettitte is going ahead with his decision to retire, leaving the Yankees with a huge hole in what appears to be a rather wobbly starting rotation. On Thursday, several all-time great Yankees weighed in on Pettitte’s career in pinstripes.
Less than two weeks until pitchers and catchers, and the rest of the players aren’t too far behind. While Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, and Jorge Posada will continue to be the centers of attention, Nick Swisher brings his swagger back for a third year in pinstripes.
