When I volunteered to write the Countdown to Spring Training number 23 post I entertained the idea of writing about a different number 23. The fact that Lou Gehrig and Alex Rodriguez share the all time grand slam leadership with 23 a piece came to mind. But what’s the point? In [...]
Yesterday, all of our rooms got a little dusty between 11 AM and noon as Jorge Posada announced his retirement from Major League Baseball. There is no doubt that Posada was a great Yankee. He gave us so many incredible memories and I cannot wait for the day when Jorge is brought back [...]
Though I didn’t watch the show, it did get me thinking. All three of the outfielders mentioned in that article, Reggie Jackson; Bernie Williams; and Paul O’Neill, are some of the finest the Yankees have had in the post DH era. Back when this blog was still (partially) The Yankee U, [...]

Over the next two days, TYU will be running four guest posts from four excellent writers. The second comes from Eddie Perez, who some of you might recognize from Twitter as @eddieperez23. He looked back at the 1985 Yankees, and I think you will enjoy the result.
Now, let’s make one thing clear. As a child of the ’80s who grew up loving [...]
Jon Heyman had the following short bit about Joe Girardi in this morning’s column:
Second-year Yankees manager Joe Girardi is having a great spring by all accounts, but that doesn’t mean the pressure’s off. It may be a little early for speculation on a replacement — I think the Yankees will make the playoffs and [...]
Everyone who has ever touched a baseball field has an opinion about A-Rod, and the latest former star to weigh in is former Yankees captain Don Mattingly. Don has one of the most refreshing perspectives on this that I have heard from a former player:
Don Mattingly reached a boiling point. The Dodgers’ hitting [...]
