Quote of the Day
Why do the Yankees always win? The other team can't stop looking at the pinstripes.
The Yankees, the first mechanicians in the world, are engineers - just as the Italians are musicians and the Germans metaphysicians - by right of birth. Nothing is more natural, therefore, than to perceive them applying their audacious ingenuity to the science of gunnery.
At a book festival in Fort Lauderdale, I met David Eisenhower, Ike's grandson, who was promoting his book 'Going Home to Glory: A Memoir of Life with Dwight D. Eisenhower,' in which he describes attending the Yankees' 154th game in 1961. The whole family had been following Mantle and Maris chase Babe Ruth's home run record across the country.
The Yankees have strict rules. You can have a mustache but no other facial hair.
Owning the Yankees is like owning the Mona Lisa.
The only difference between me and those other great Yankees is my skin color.
Yankees don't understand that the Southern way of talking is a language of nuance. What we can do in the South is we can take a word and change it just a little bit and make it mean something altogether different.
I liked George Weiss when he was with the Yankees. He loved the Old Timers' Day. He loved it. And he invited all these people to come, all these players to come.
Hating the Yankees is as American as pizza pie, unwed mothers, and cheating on your income tax.
I'm a lucky guy and I'm happy to be with the Yankees. And I want to thank everyone for making this night necessary.
The Yankees don't pay me to win every day, just two out of three.
Let me tell you something: I love the Yankees. And let me tell you why: because without the Yankees, there is nobody to hate.
I became a Yankees fan for a few years. But now, I gotta say, I'm really rooting for the Red Sox.
I have the greatest job in the world. Only one person can have it. You have shortstops on other teams - I'm not knocking other teams - but there's only one shortstop on the Yankees.
The draft is a crapshoot, so I've been very fortunate to be drafted by the Yankees, and to have spent my whole career here.
The owner of the New York Yankees, Mr. George Steinbrenner who I had the greatest respect for, I want to thank him for giving me the opportunity to win that special ring in 1996.
I was a pitcher, shortstop and outfielder, and the Yankees tried to sign me out of high school as a first-round draft pick in 1981. I turned them down to go to college.
I was into the Mets because my Dad worked at IBM where he got free Mets tickets, so I was into the Mets... then I got to 'Saturday Night Live' where my boss has unbelievable N.Y. Yankees tickets, so he invites us to the games. I'm going to all the games, so I might as well root for the team I'm gonna go sit with.
Baseball has changed dramatically since I began my tenure with the Yankees.
The south produced statesmen and soldiers, planters and doctors and lawyers and poets, but certainly no engineers and mechanics. Let Yankees adopt such low callings.
The game of baseball is better when the Dodgers are playing well, just like when the Yankees are playing well, or the Cubs, the Phillies, the big-name teams.
Confidence is contagious, but so is failure. Even the Yankees will lose if you persuade them that they will.

Everybody says we hated the Yankees. We didn't hate the Yankees. We just hated the way they beat us.
When I became the manager of the New York Yankees, it was an opportunity to realize my lifelong dream of winning the World Series. We were fortunate enough to succeed in our first season in 1996, and in the years that followed, we wrote some great new chapters in Yankee history.
We plan absentee ownership as far as running the Yankees is concerned.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
