  • Yankees Fans Should Get Excited

    Yes, yes, I know you're always excited. But like in the infomercial ... wait, there's more.

    The University of Kentucky basketball team just won the national championship. What does that have to do with the Yankees?

    Well, Kentucky has won 8 championships. The past six titles all came in years when the Yankees also won the World Series (1998, 1996, 1978, 1958, 1951 & 1949). If you're into coincidences and a Yankees fan, then things are looking good.

    By the way, the only time Kentucky won a national championship but the Yankees didn't win the World Series was 1948 - which is the last time the Indians won the World Series. So maybe there might be some hope in Cleveland.

    You only accounted for 7 titles. Who won the series on the other title year?

        Considering the pitching upgrades, I've been feeling pretty good about the Yankees' chances all off-season. Come November, all will be right with the universe once again.

              What upgrade? The porker on the DL and the old dude from the NL west?

                Name sez it all!

                Pffft!

                Pro Baseball ain't been worth squat for decades - I enjoy watchin town teams in the back country more!

                Hell of a lot more talent, folks playin from nothin but their guts, hearts & loads of spontaneous entertainment!

                Micro-brews are a helluva lot better & a 1/3 the price, too.

                Very little to no admission & all around real good times without all the yahoo looney toon fanbois & goils that couldn't make 1st base on a home run at a jog w/o a heart attack if they wuz playin, to boot!

                    What you perceive as an 'upgrade' in pitching, I see as desperation to such an extent that the Yankees management is pulling Pettitte out of retirement. Yes, Pettitte got old and Rivera is on his way out too. The only pitcher you got worth even mentioning is Sabathia and he's not having a great spring either.

                    I could have grabbed a couple of Yankees pitchers in the live draft but chose not to. There are plenty of better pitchers out there than what's on the Yankees bench...

                    BTW, what do you consider an 'upgrade'? I don't see it, as a matter of fact, I see the Yankees stumbling and fumbling their way thru the 2012 season. Mark my words!

                      ^ We can at least take comfort from the fact that Ralph Branca's son-in-law won't be leading Red Sux Nation to the promised land anytime soon.

                          I've been following American baseball for approx 4-5 years now and the Yankees are by far the most popular baseball team in America. They are most certainly due for a championship. Probably not this year but they have a good chance next year, when Rivera's replacement takes over.

                          BTW, I got Rivera on my fantasy baseball team. Took him with my 3rd overall pick. I won't take him at all next year though, he is on the decline.

                            He MIGHT actually retire at the end of this year. David Aardsma and/or Dave Robertson are the candidates for closer of the NYYs if he does retire.

                              If Chipper retires,so should Rivera. Next thing you know people will be after me to retire. 25 years coming up. Is that time to retire? Nope.
