So the regular season came to a close this afternoon, with the Yankee bats coming alive after a near-weeklong slumber, bludgeoning the Rays, 10-2.
The victory brought the Yankees to 103-59 on the season, marking the team’s highest win total since 2002. Pretty much everything went the way the [...]
As we enter the last week of the 2009 season, there are only two undecided playoff spots: the winner of the AL Central, and the National League wild card. Despite being only 2 games behind the Rockies, a lot would have to go right for Atlanta this week, who have [...]
Although part of me was hoping the Yankees would clinch tomorrow so I could watch it live, I must say it felt great to finally take the division back. And to do it by sweeping the Red Sox, locking up 100 wins, and the best record in baseball, well, [...]
Steve Lombardi of Was Watching fame provides this awesome bit of statistical analysis with regards to our beloved 2009 New York Yankees:

I know the Yankees’ team offense is off-the-charts awesome, what with leading all of MLB in runs, home runs, OBP, SLG and OPS, but it’s hard not to see Adam Dunn’s 6th-best-in-MLB .976 OPS and wonder “what if?”
I know most people will scoff and say “But Adam Dunn only strikes out and therefore isn’t [...]
So it was obviously incredible to watch the Yankees sweep the Red Sox while in Cape Cod. We go up to the Cape every August, but it’s been years since the Yanks played Boston during our trip, and it was just a fantastic feeling walking around the beaches and stores and everywhere in between decked [...]
Not that coming back from a three- (or really, any) run deficit is ever easy, per se, and the 2009 team was obviously a pretty unique group, tallying 51 comeback wins — with 5 runs [...]
