• Baseball-Reference.com: Yankees 2009 World Series Champs

    Posted by on November 2nd, 2009 · Comments (3)

    If you check any Yankees players baseball-reference page, under their post season stats section it will list the 2009 World Series stats for that player. Under the result column, it will say W (for win). Sure, it doesn’t mean anything, but it’s pretty awesome.

    Here’s A-Rod‘s for example.

      Although I’m thrilled that B-R is so optimistic, I do wish they’d have waited just a bit before doing that.

      It has the feeling of those presumptuous 19-0 t-shirts the Patriots had made before they lost to the Giants in Super Bowl XLII.

      It’s cool, MJ, there’s already been one of those on the other side.

      A Philly newspaper printed an ad from Macy’s congratulating the Phillies on being “back-to-back World Series Champions”.

      Here’s the ad itself:

      So everything’s even from karmic equilibrium point.

      My mistake: “back-to back champs”.
