A Game To Just Forget

Blue Jays 14, Yankees 8 …

 

With this loss, the New York Yankees split a four-game series against the Blue Jays in Toronto. But, this was a very successful road trip as the Bronx Bombers (87-50), won five of seven games to remain in first place in the AL East, seven and a half games ahead of the second place Boston Red Sox (79-57).

The Yankees return home to play a Labor Day day/night doubleheader against the Tampa Bay Rays at Yankee Stadium in the Beautiful Bronx.

The big story, of course, is Derek Jeter’s pursuit of Lou Gehrig’s all-time Yankees hit record.

The “Captain” Jeter is four hits away from passing the Yankees first “Captain”, the Iron Horse, Lou Gehrig on the all-time New York Yankees hit list.

Gehrig has 2,721 career hits; and, Jeter with three hits in yesterday’s loss to the Blue Jays, now stands at a total of 2,718 hits. 

“Best Wishes” and “Thanks” to Derek for his many great years in Yankee Pinstripes.

 

And, Best Wishes to all who have visited my blog …

I hope everybody has a very enjoyable Labor Day holiday weekend !!!

    We may have lost, but baseball won yesterday. My daughter cannot stop gushing about it – and she has only seem Jeter play for 2 years. (She’s 6 1/2) My father is a proud Yankee fan today. This is a big moment for Derek – and I hope he soaks it in. He deserves it. I have tipped my hat to Jeter many times – starting when I watched him in Triple A – and I again tip my hat to him. Congrats to him, the Yankees and all the fans.

    Hi, Julia …

    Thanks for your nice thoughts, and well wishes to Derek Jeter !!! … Yes, the “Captain” did indeed break Lou Gehrig’s all-time New York Yankees hit record; and, now has his sights on becoming the first Yankee player to get 3,000 hits !!! … Derek Jeter is having a great year [one of his best] … I look forward to Derek continuing his great play and hot hitting in the playoffs and World Series !!! … I hope the Yankees play the Red Sox in the American League Championship Series this year !!! … That series will be exciting to watch, as both of us will be rooting for a different result … But, Yankees vs. Red Sox is a fitting way to end this great 2009 American League season !!!
    .
    Take care, Julia !!!
    Enjoy the post-season !!!

    Hi, Babu …

    It has been awhile since I wrote the above post, and at the time the Yankees had an (87-50) record … Now, as of October 1st, our Bronx Bombers are (102-57), going 15-7 since September 7th, clinching first place in the AL East !!! … Also, it was great that the Yankees clinched the Divison with a three-game sweep over the Boson Red Sox on the weekend of: Sept 25-26-27th, winning their 100th game of the season on the day they clinched !!! … The Yankees regular season has been excellent … But, the Yankees goal this year [which is the same goal every year], is to “win the World Series” !!! … It will take 11 more wins in the playoffs and World Series to make this goal happen; and, only then, can all of us in the Yankees Universe call 2009 a “successful season” !!! … This has been a very special year [so far] for the New York Yankees; and, I look forward to this season ending with the Yankees winning their 27th World Championship !!!
    .
    Take care, Babu !!!
    “Go Yankees” !!! … #27 in 2009 !!!
