The Yankees have painted themselves into a corner with their overpriced stadium, so they've got to hope to put some marquee names out there. Love him or hate him, Yankee fans wanna see AR hit. He's an attraction. Plus, Carlos Beltran has been healthy and productive.



The Yankees had their run from 1996 to 2000. They won because of good young players and solid veterans. After the 2001 WS loss, they signed Giambi for 7 years, 120 million.This would mark the beginning of signing free agents who didn't quite pan out. Luckily, they still had the Core Four to at least remain respectable. Now the Yankees have had to start all over again. Maybe you can too.

Pretty much hit the nail on the head. I can't complain one bit. It was an insane run.

Incredible game for Danny Espinosa tonight: two home runs, one from each side of the plate. Right handed HR was a grand slam, left handed HR was a 3 run.

Nats have outscored opponents 33-3 since the 4th inning of Monday's game.

It was an insane run. I became a fan when I was about 5 years old during the Yankees' late '70's run. But then, after '81, there was nothing until '95. Winfield was my favorite Yankee during that time. Mattingly was a close 2nd. When they finally won again in '96, I never took their winning for granted. Before Showalter became the manager, the team didn't have a direction. It looked bleak. Buck was a great manager, but he lacked diplomacy with both his players and the media. Joe Torre's huge plus was being great with his players and the media. After 2000, they probably could have won a few more WS titles before Torre left following the 2007 season.

Agree with all this 100%.

Winfield was my favorite. It's good to see a fellow Winfield fan. He got a lot of shit back then, and most of the people I grew up with were Mattingly guys.

Yeah, Boss George mindfucked Dave for years. Imagine if Boss George re-signed Reggie after the '81 season. Those two in the same line-up would have been unstoppable.

Oh well.

Nothing like playing the Cubs to get your offense healthy again
