Top Ten Tuesdays: Misty Water-Colored Meeeeeemories!
Tuesday, January 29, 2008
The Yanks' 2007 season got off to a rough start (in case you've forgotten, their record in April was 9-14 and they were in the cellar of the AL East) and they ended the year on an even uglier note (let's blame the gnats! And... the Yankees playing like little leaguers. And... the Indians completely blowing the Yanks out of the water with their superior pitching... sigh), but there were some good times in there! Really!

Top Ten Happy Memories Of The 2007 Season

10) Shelley "Spirit Coordinator" Duncan's double-homer game on 7/22/07.
9) Pettitte's performance during the gnat-game - 6.1 IP with no runs scoring. Too bad it didn't turn out better.
8) The big Clemens announcement.
7) Hughsie's much-anticipated debut. He didn't pull a Joba, but incredibly solid starts for a rookie and very promising for the future.
6) The relative surprise of I-Ken. Obviously he was expected to be good (he was the Yank's first pick in the '05 draft) but he got somewhat lost in the Hughsie/Jobamania shuffle and wasn't as highly anticipated earlier in the season.
5) The team climbing their way out of utter loser-ville and coming to within 1.5 games of the Red Sox (for a day, anyway!).
4) Melky's INCREDIBLE catch that robbed Manny of a homer and won him a "This Year In Baseball" award for most outstanding play in the 2007 season. (EDIT... this catch was in 2006. Clearly it made a big impact on me, as I am still trying to give him credit for it like it happened yesterday. I guess I only have 9 fantabulous memories of last season rather than 10. Lo siento, munecas)
3) A-Rod's incredible clutchtasticness! Walk-off homers, grand slams, etc!
2) The day they secured their spot in the playoffs - for quite a while there it was looking iffy...
1) The sheer thrill of watching Jobamania pitch and knowing that he is not only a farm product but has been made essentially untouchable by Cash et al, so we can get excited about watching a nice home-grown farm boy for many years to come!

    I wholeheartedly agree on I-Ken. To be honest I knew nothing about him, but now it seems like the team/scouts are more impressed with him than with Hughes!

    I could agree with #1 more; I watched jobamania develop on tv over a period of mere weeks and was in absolute awe. I remember seeing the 7th or 8th inning roll around, yankees up by one, needing a guaranteed hold and save situation, watching almost 60k fans get on their feet.... jo-ba ::clap clap:: jo-ba ::clap clap::

    I completely forgot about this one moment.

    Edwar Ramirez.... major league debut...9th inning yankees stadium.

    Strikes out the first three batters he sees ever in the major leagues pinstripes.

    Unbelievable. What a show.

    Too bad he didn't last much longer and wasn't invited to spring training.. maybe sometime in 08!!!

    I will never forget the Clemens return and Suzyn Waldman's reaction to it. Sterling and Suzyn get a bad rap for their announcing, but I wouldn't trade em for the world.
