Quick Hit: My Favorite Yankees In 2014

Many people don't know this about me but I like to play favorites, and especially like to pick favorites when it comes to my Yankees. The people who knew me, Bryan Van Dusen my co-owner specifically, before The Greedy Pinstripes knows how much of a hard on I had for AJ Burnett when he was in Yankee Pinstripes. This year is no different as I always pick a couple positional players and pitchers to especially root for in a season. The votes are in and the results are as follows:

Dellin Betances
Alfonso Soriano
Jacoby Ellsbury
Michael Pineda

You didn't think I was going to pick Derek Jeter did you? I love Jeter, who doesn't, but Jeter has never made one of these lists for me and I don't know exactly why. There is just something about what Soriano and Ellsbury bring to the club and to the lineup that intrigues me, especially the finger point from Alfonso. Betances is a guy guy and can intimidate and overpower everyone on the field, plus he is a good guy to have around in a Yankees and Red Sox brawl.


  1. I'm a big Vidal Nuno and David Robertson fan. They just never seem to mess up.

  2. I'm rooting for Gardner/Cervelli. Homegrown underdogs. Robertson/Nova on the pitching side.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
