So it looks like the Yankees are signing Hideki Matsui to a one day contract, so he can retire a Yankee. I love that!

Yoooooooooooooooooooouk! First Johnny Damon, now him and let's not forget that Ortiz wanted to play here as well. Must be something about Boston. Hmm!

Well, apparently Russell Martin is the first free agent to abandon the Yankees, here https://twitter.com/Ken_Rosenthal/status/274323115230760960. No loyalty! Swisher will probably follow soon. After the loyalty from Cashman and the fans, this is how they repay it. Bye then! He will be sucking with the Pirates, while the Yankees take another trip to the playoffs.

I saw on facebook that the Yankees have donated $500,000 to the Red Cross to support their relief efforts for the tri-state area.

And right below the announcement and photo are a bunch of people saying that they should have donated more. That really bothers me. The Yankees do a good deed, something they didn't have to do, and people are complaining. I just want to shake everyone who posted something negatively.

Sorry, I wanted to share the positive, but the negative just bugged me too much not to say anything.

1934 - Lou Gehrig hits for the cycle in an 11-2 win over the White Sox.
1985 - A Yankees batboy is hit by a line drive foul ball by Butch Wynegar, prompting NY officials to hand down a rule mandating the wearing of protective helmets by batboys during all games.

This Day in Yankees History:
1903 - Lou Gehrig, one of the greatest of all Yankees, is born.
1941 - Joe DiMaggio goes 3-for-3, including a home run, against the White Sox, notching up his 32nd consecutive game with a hit.
1955 - Mickey Mantle hits his 100th MLB career home run as the Yankees take a pair of games from the White Sox, 7-1 and 5-2.
1961 - Roger Maris hits a 9th inning home run off Kansas City A's pitcher Jim Archer - his 25th of the season - putting him seven games ahead of Babe Ruth's 60th home run pace in 1927.
2000 - After a few starts where he had the Yankees at his mercy, Red Sox SP Brian Rose finds himself figured out - to such an extent that the Yankees more than beat up on him, they hammer him 22-1 in front of a hushed Fenway Park.
2002 - The Yankees overcome a seven run 4th inning by the Rockies to win 20-10.
2005 - The three-game series against the Cubs - the first one between the two teams since the Cubs were swept in the '38 World Series - ends with the Yankees once again taking out their brooms. Alex Rodriguez crowns a four-run 4th inning adding to the 6-2 final score.

This Day in Yankees History:
1918 - The Yankees score in every inning except the 8th as they beat the Cleveland Indians, 19-3.
1977 - OF Reggie Jackson and Manager Billy Martin become involved in a dugout confrontation that is seen live on national television during the Game of the Week broadcast on NBC TV. Playing against the Red Sox in Boston, Martin removes Jackson from the game for loafing on a ball hit to the outfield, replacing him with reserve OF Paul Blair - a decision Jackson questions his manager about to the point where coaches Elston Howard and Yogi Berra separate them.
2009 - The Yankees are shut out by Craig Stammen - who earns his first MLB career victory - and the Nationals, 3-0, in a game that starts over five-and-a-half hours later than scheduled. It is the first game since the opening of the ballpark that April where the scoring did not comprise of at least one home run. The few fans remaining at the stadium at first pitch are invited to watch the game from the field level seats.

Since there hasn't been a lot of activity around here so far this year, I was wondering what would make you more likely to take part in the GDP..?

This Day in Yankees History:

1960 - The Yankees roll into Chicago to the play the White Sox on the first day that Comiskey Park was equipped with a new $300,000 exploding scoreboard - to be set off for Chi-Sox home run celebrations. Clete Boyer goes yard in the second inning of a 4-2 Yankees win, and upon his return to the dugout is greeted by his teammates, who, in a lampooning of the edifice, are all holding lit sparklers in celebration.
1978 - A Yankee tradition starts as Ron Guidry's magical year continues. In the 4-0 win over California he pushed his record to 11-0. As to the tradition, the practice of the Bronx Massive standing and rhythmically clapping when a Yankee pitcher gets two strikes on a batter started on this day as a response to Louisiana Lightning's 18 Ks.
2005 - The Yankees welcome the Chicago Cubs back into the Bronx in the first game between the two teams since the Bombers swept the Cubbies in the 1938 World Series. The Cubs did not fair any better 67 years later with the Yankees winning 9-6. Robinson Canó hit a single that ignited a two-run rally - after flying out to LF Todd Hollandsworth four straight times.

This Day in Yankees History:

Today's theme is "First", in honour of the fact that the Yankees are finally in sole ownership of it in the AL East.
1961 - A 3-2, 11th inning win over the Tribe , with the undefeated Ralph Terry getting the W, propels the Yankees into first place. A Mickey Mantle home run tied to game to force extra innings.
1963 - The Yankees gain first place behind Al Downing in a 9-2 victory over the Tigers.
2004 - Gary Sheffield provides insurance with a one-out home run in the 9th inning of a 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks in the Yankees first regular season visit to Arizona.

There are two Yankee birthdays today. Eduardo Nunez is 25. But the big one is Andy Pettitte, who is celebrating the big 4-0 today.
