Pinstriped glory, the greatest moments in Yankee history part four: The ’98 Yankees’ magnificent season

There are a few things about the Yankees that I’m very stubborn about, things that no matter how hard you debate with me I’ll just never change my mind on. For instance, Joe DiMaggio is the greatest baseball player the world has ever seen, if I ever have a son, I want him to grow up to be the man Lou Gehrig was, and the 1927 team is the greatest that baseball will ever see. However, while I am of the mindset the ’27 team is the greatest, there will never be a season more impressive than 1998. The team won 114 games in the regular season while losing only 48. They won the AL East by a mind boggling 22 games and went 11-2 in the playoffs sweeping the San Diego Padres in the World Series for the club’s 24th overall championship. Their win total regular season and postseason combined was 125 which is still a major league record to this day.

Chapman becomes US citizen

On April 29th, 2016, our new soon-to-be flamethrowing closer, Aroldis Chapman, became a Citizen of the United States of America. As we all know, Chapman is from Cuba and even though the relations between the United States and Cuba aren't as tense as they once were, tension still remains. Nonetheless, a big step for Chapman as he prepares for his May 9th return. Ironically, he returns against the Kansas City Royals, who arguably have had the best bullpen in baseball the last two seasons. You can check out Chapman's instagram post below.
