Thank You Yankees

Despite the way the playoffs finished and the frustration and anger that boiled over in September and the Texas series, I want to thank the Yankees for another exciting season.

A season in which I got to watch Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettitte, and yes though I am sometimes his harshest critic, Jorge Posada, for giving their all in another season in Pinstripes.

To Robinson Cano for his fantastic MVP-worthy 2010 season. He truly blossomed this year.

Mark Teixeira for playing through one injury after another in the 2nd half of the season and for providing another outstanding gold glove season. (Let's work on that post-season batting though).

Alex Rodriguez for continuing to amaze even as he was banged up. 30 HR 100 RBI, put it in the book.

Kerry Wood for his vintage moments.

Curtis Granderson for turning his season around and for showing just what a classy and great guy he is.

Nick Swisher for more entertaining moments and quotes.

CC Sabathia for being the ace of the team, another great guy, and Cy Young winner (better be).

And to everyone else who graced the Pinstripes. And for all those who we lost this year. The Boss, The Voice, and Freddy Sez.

And thanks to everyone who reads this blog. I know there aren't a lot of you, but I truly appreciate those of you who do and those comment to me on here or Twitter or Facebook.

Look out American League, we're coming back in 2011!


  1. well said, except for the omission of congrats to
    the better team; i've seen nyy beaten before, even swept, but they were smothered here more than in any series since the big red machine dominated them three decades ago

  2. If you see my previous post, I said that Texas out played the Yankees in every way.
