Look what people have to say about the RLYW!

CAIRO just takes the Marcels and changes the underlying assumptions and components in a bunch of ways that make the Yankees look better.

Wow, two stupid posts in one day. I think you’ve reached your yearly quota.

I don’t know if any of you current posters were around for that, but if so, I just can’t understand how you can call yourselves Yankee fans. Pathetic quitters is what you sounded like. Of the lame posts I could stand to read, the only person who had any confidence in the Yankees at that point was a (yeesh) Red Sox fan.
Jeter is King

Quite the attitude you have SG. Maybe you should shitcan this blog and join Steve at WasWatching? Or follow some other stupid team that has made the PS 15 of the last 17 years. Jeez… and some people think Yankee fans are entitled.

MLB.com: 1998 Yankees top list of 25 greatest teams

MLB Network has unveiled its top 25 teams of Major League Baseball’s expansion era—and it’s a star-studded list.

These aren’t just 25 great clubs. They’re some of the most transcendent squads to set foot on the field.

The teams on this list have treated baseball fans to some of the most indelible moments in the history of America’s national pastime. They’ve been behind some of the most memorable pennant races, postseason clashes and World Series in the decades since MLB expanded in 1961.

Which team was named the best? Read on. Here are MLB Network’s 25 greatest teams of the expansion era:
...
1. 1998 New York Yankees
Here it is. The greatest club on the list. The ‘98 squad started New York’s three-year championship run, behind the efforts of Jeter, Rivera, Bernie Williams, Tino Martinez, Paul O’Neill, Jorge Posada and Andy Pettitte, among others. Managed by Joe Torre, the Bronx Bombers went 108-54 in the regular season, then 11-2 in the postseason—with their historic campaign capped by a sweep of the Padres in the World Series.

It’s really hard to believe 1998 was 20 years ago.  Of course, they got the Yankees’ record wrong in the excerpt above.  They were actually 114-48. 

It was a magical season, the likes of which we’ll probably never get to see again.    Luckily, most of us got to experience it when it happened.
