The Baby Bombers Might Be Ready Now?!

Last month the Yankees finally did something they never do, sell at the deadline.  Brian Cashman knew this needed to happen in order for the playoffs to return to the Bronx.  He did an amazing job at revamping the farm system in just one week. They now have a Top 3 Farm System in all of baseball.

From the moment Mariano Rivera began warming up in the bullpen,  the sold out crowd in the Bronx was electric.  Mariano entered the game in the middle of the eighth inning, Continue reading Exit Sandman
