In the Joe Torre Era, the Yankees have had four seasons where they had a great 1-2 punch at the start of their line-up:
1999: Knoblauch & Jeter (113 RCAA)
2002: Soriano & Jeter (57 RCAA)
2003: Soriano & Jeter (56 RCAA)
2006: Damon & Jeter (78 RCAA)
Clearly, the Knoblauch & Jeter team of 1999 was the best of the bunch.
It’s a shame that Knoblauch’s career ended the way that it did…and it would be very interesting to someday hear the true story behind all his issues. Was it HGH related? Was it the stress of his father’s condition? Both? Something else?
Com’on Chuck – write a book for us. I would read it.
