    Only two Yankees, in the entire history of the New York franchise, have hit .340 or better in a season (where they qualified for the batting title) at the age of 23 or younger:

    Joe DiMaggio in 1937 (.346) and Don Mattingly in 1984 (.343).

    Robinson Cano can become the third one this year. Impressive.

      Cano is most frequently compared to Rod Carew, but I see a lot of Donnie Baseball in his hitting style – the coiled stance, hitting to all fields, the line-drive gap power. Or maybe it’s just wishful thinking on my part.

      Somebody want to tell Sterling that in 1993 the Braves were in the NL West and the Phillies were in the NL East?

      There was no wild card in 1993
