New York Yankees News: St. Patrick's Day Edition

Bronx Baseball DailySenior Analyst IMarch 17, 2010

Good morning and Happy St. Patrick’s Day BBD readers.

When I was just a bit younger I often worked in the service industries in various bars and restaurants where St. Patrick’s Day was just another work day. I didn’t celebrate or get drunk because it’s a busy day when I was relied upon.

Fortunately for me that wasn’t the case last year and I went out and had a blast celebrating alongside a good portion of NYC and I intend on doing so again this year.

With that in mind, this will be my only post on the blog today, but it’s okay because there really isn’t a whole lot going on today and maybe we’ll see some good posts from the other BBD writers as well.

Here are some stories to talk about though:

My favorite story of the group is definitely Perez’s story about the 1985 team. Even though I was quite young at the time, those Yankees made a huge impression on me.

The offense was lead by my favorite Don Mattingly with the help of Hall of Famers Dave Winfield and Rickey Henderson . Ron Guidry was also still on top of his game as he won 22.

It is truly an underrated Yankees team. If the Yankees were a team without so much history, like say the Mets, that team would still be revered today instead of being an afterthought.
