On the heels of all the news reports about the Yanks’ reunion (of sorts) with Joe Torre, I wanted to make an attempt to put Torre’s bitter divorce in some context. While the Torre situation certainly seemed unique at the time, the fact of the matter is that many great Yankee players [...]
Ex-Yankee and fan fave Bernie Williams popped by Spring Training this week, to visit some old friends and take part in the Opening Day ceremonies at Steinbrenner Field. The Daily News’ Mark Feinsand caught up with him and discussed a few things, most notably his chances at Cooperstown. He writes:
Mark Carig made an interesting point this morning about Melky Cabrera and Brett Gardner by comparing their credentials with those of a young Bernie WIlliams:
What if Bernie Williams (the 1992 version) were involved in the Yankees’ current position battle in center field? How would he stack up competing against Gardner and Cabrera? Would [...]

According to a filed complaint, a woman alleges Bernie Williams snatched her camera and hit her in the face late last night at a club in Puerto Rico.

The opening of the new Yankee Stadium is sure to come with plenty of pomp and circumstance. The guys at Dugout Central asked who would get tapped to throw out the first ball at the new place. The answers were to be expected, with Whitey Ford, Yogi Berra, and the Boss getting the votes. [...]
Brett Gardner just hit his second HR of the spring — this one, off of Aaron Harang to tie the game, 3-3. Gardner is hitting .444 with 2 SB while Melky is hitting .125 (1 single in 8 AB). Joe Girardi is certainly impressed with Gardner and seems to like what he brings [...]
Two interesting faces showed up at the Yankees spring training facility in Tampa this morning. The Boss, George Steinbrenner, made an appearance, as did Bernie Williams. Their showings are both nostalgic and poignant, while being a little bit sad as well:
Steinbrenner arrived at about 10 a.m., was brought from the parking lot to Steinbrenner [...]
