A thread titled "Joe Torre" for example could be about anything - please specify exactly what you want to discuss in the thread you're starting such as "Will Joe Torre Ever Come Back to the Yankees?". Not everyone has a lot of time on the forum to go in and out of every single thread so...
Finally, time to play for real!
What are some of the moves you want to see this winter? I'm hoping we pick up Lester and/or Scherzer first and foremost but I also think adding a right fielder with power is crucial. Nelson Cruz? We will also have a middle of the infield to put together, I have a feeling we sign JJ Hardy and see how Refsnyder does at 2nd in Spring Training.
Do you think this record is achievable? Looking at the schedule, the Yanks have more home games left than anyone else in MLB (40). Let's just consider the possibility of turning things around and regain their home field advantage. Can they go 28-12 at home? Can they play slightly better than .500 on the road (15-13)? Will 90 wins get them into the playoffs?
Let's assume so. IMO here's what they need to do to get to 90 wins:
* Acquire an available every day RFer with some pop (Carlos...
Interesting article about trading Adrian Beltre on Insider. Wonder what it would take to get him. Could easily move Solarte to 2B and murder Brian Roberts. Wonder what the Rangers would want?
To continue Tz's awesome tribute to Jeter in the countdown thread, I've amassed over 180 pictures of Jeter and plan to post one for every day to the end of the regular season. Enjoy.

According to the stats on baseball-reference.com, the Yankees are closing in 10,000 all-time wins, currently with 9978. If they go on a 22 game winning streak, no. 10,000 will occur on July 3 in Minnesota, barring any postponements.
Anyone care to guess when no. 10,000 will actually happen? I'm guessing Sunday, July 27 vs. Toronto.

no honorable mentions, without the Gardner HR it would have been a loss or made up later
Team Hero: Chase Headley! A guy who wasn't even on the team this morning ... and wasn't in the stadium when the game started!
Honorable Mention: Us in the Game Thread, for sticking it out through fourteen innings and keeping a sense of humor!
And Jeff Francis ... the winning pitcher, in his Yankee debut!
"The Yankees have acquired Chase Headley from the Padres, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports (Twitter links). The Yankees will send Yangervis Solarte and minor league right-hander Rafael De Paula to the Padres in return for Headley and $1MM."
Thinking have spending a mini-vacation down there the weekend of Aug 15th and wondering if theres anything I should know. Is it easy travel to and from the Stadium?
Probably going to book a flight/hotel for 4 nights in the St Pete's beach area which is about 10 miles or so from the Stadium. Get down on a Wednesday, have 2 nights to do whatever (I''ll assume theres some fun bars/nightlife down there), and go to the games on Friday and Sat. Return home on sunday.
