Yankee question of the day ... from a Met fan.

"When they retire all numbers will they go to letters, decimal points, three digits, fractions..."

Oh, the humanity.  A Met fan mocking Yankee fans ... and having a good point.  The Steinbrenner Kids have reduced Yankee fans like me to this.  Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth had to be on death's door to be honored in Yankee Stadium.  Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio got plaques in 1969 but didn't get their monuments until after they died, same as Gehrig and Ruth.

Steinbrenner Kids to immortalize Andy Pettitte. I'd rather they just sell the team.  Monday, February 16, 2015

I don't think that Andy Pettitte deserves to have his number retired and certainly does not deserve a plaque, although he would not be the least worthy.

The Steinbrenner Kids are running the Yankees into the ground and trying to hide their ineptitude with increasingly silly ceremonies that ironically only serve to emphasize how incompetent the Steinbrenner Kids are.
