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.

Yankee release Danny Espinosa

Per Jack Curry on Twitter, the Yankees have released infielder Danny Espinosa. Unlike other moves earlier today, this one does not come as much of a surprise now that the Yankees have Neil Walker, along with Espinosa's recent lack of success in the majors.

Espinosa signed a minor league deal with the Yankees, and hit just .160/.276/.320 in Spring Training, with one homer and four RBIs. His 2017 season was just as miserable, as he hit just .173/.245/.278 with the Angels, Mariners, and Rays, with six homers, 31 RBIs, and a insane 109 strikeouts in just 266 at bats. Overall, Yankee fans can breathe a sigh of relief, as Stephen Drew 2.0 will not make an appearance in a Yankee uniform in 2018.
