...on the face of the earth. It's 70 years ago today that Lou Gehrig gave that speech in front of 61,808 fans at Yankee Stadium.
...exit batter...The greatest closer in the game of baseball - Mariano Rivera - notched his 500th save while also getting his first RBI.
...told the manager...I'm benching myself, Joe and that was the end of 2,130 consecutive games for Lou Gehrig.
...no one built... CC handed out the first K, Jorge hit the first homer but that was no way to open the new stadium.
...is that what the Yanks need? He leads the team in all the main batting stats so far and then he goes and pitches a scoreless inning against the Rays.
...the pain has ceased. The expensive disaster that was the 2009 New York Yankees have turned into a great team over night with their first win of the season.
...supposed to go like this. Wang is meant to be the New York Yankees stopper, they weren't meant to be worse off than last year...it's only two games in.
...was it? I was supposed to post yesterday about the New York Yankees win in their opening game of the season behind Sabathia and Teixeira, things conspired to stop this happening.
...then what chance did Ricky have. Rickey was a lock for first ballot election too the Hall, many were talking about record percentage of votes but 28 voters had other ideas.
...would be spending. So of course I wanted them to get the two top notch free agents this off season and thankfully they did it.
...oooose. Called out one last time as Mike Mussina calls it a day in the big leagues, his name is up there with some famous old players but does it mean the HoF?
...champions. With the British government bailing out the Royal Bank of Scotland, who took over Citizens Bank do we sponsor the current champions of baseball?
...Madden...and the rest of the boys down in Tampa Bay for winning game 7 of the ALCS and making it possible to watch the World Series this year.
...oooose. One bright spot on a dank season for the Yankees is Mike Mussina finally getting 20 wins after 18 years of trying.
...the final game at Yankee Stadium. At least they didn't blow this part of the season and saw the old place off with a win over the Orioles, helped by Jose Molina who hit the last home run at Yankee Stadium.
