A few interesting historical and statistical bits of data came to my attention lately, and I thought I would share them:
1) In Steve’s posts on Derek Jeter a few days ago, he compared Jeter to Mickey Mantle, and noted that Mantle’s decline greatly hurt the club in 1965-1968. In an ensuing discussion that took [...]
Brian Cashman finally ended the Joba debate yesterday by calling the starting experiment over. Ben Kabak does a great job summing up what went wrong, and the internet is rife with people explaining how the Yankees should have handled matters. However, it seems that some of those opinions are based on hindsight, as I [...]
When I heard that today is Bernie WIlliams’ 42nd birthday, I thought it would be interesting to look back at his career and the possibility of his reaching the Hall of Fame.

I was having a discussion with @jaydestro on Twitter this morning that piqued my interest as to the psyche of Yankees fans. Jay correctly noted that many Yankees fans and local media members will likely overreact should the Yankees lose to the Red Sox tonight. I asked [...]

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.
