Jun 10 – News Roundup

wordpress2(New York, NY) –  Various news of sorts:  The Yanks announced the make-up game from last Friday’s drizzle-out will be on Labor Day Night (Sept 7) as part of a day-night double header.  Traffic should be great getting into and out of the city!

The Yanks are 0-6 against Boston this year going into the Wednesday 2nd game of the series and still in a tie for first place.  Amazing.

  • See ‘161st Street’ Blog for a nice write-up on the Yanks first pick in this year’s draft (Slade Heathcott).
  • There are interesting and SAD pictures on ‘Sliding Into Home‘ blog on the old stadium demolition.  See this link.
  • There is actually a whole web site dedicated to this tragic event at this link:  http://www.demolitionofyankeestadium.com/
  • We never really acknowledged a remarkable accomplishment from ex-yankee Randy Johnson, who got his 300th victory recently.  The future Hall of Famer had a nice article about him here.

  1. I am very happy that you enjoyed my post on Slade Heathcott and I am thankful for the link. I checked out some pictures of the Yankee Stadium demolition, they make me really sad. I can’t even imagine what I will be like when there is no evidence that it was even there.

  2. Apparently the closest active players are Jamie Moyer and Andy Pettite at around 250 and 220 respectively…. I don’t think either of them have it in them!

  3. Congrats to Randy! Question to the group — Is he the last? If not, who’s next? — I know this could be easily answered with a quick stats check, but figured it’d be a good topic of discussion.

  4. The Yankees lost 6-5 tonight to the Boston Red Sox!! Now the Yankees are 0-7 against their hated division rivals this season!! The Yankees are one game back of the Boston Red Sox with one game left with the Red Sox in Fenway Park with C.C. Sabathia pitching for the Yankees versus Brad Penny for the Boston Red Sox!!!
