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.

Injury Updates: Ellsbury, A-Rod, Sabathia, and Castro (May 8)

The Yankees are trying to claw their way back into relevance in the American League East division race, but several injuries are getting in the way. CC Sabathia, Alex Rodriguez, Starlin Castro, and Jacoby Ellsbury have all had injuries; thankfully, minor ones such as the one with Brett Gardner were resolved quickly. However, the aforementioned four players are still not back yet, so we’ve compiled a list of injury updates for all of you so you can view them at one place.
