Quote of the Day
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.
Hating the Yankees is as American as pizza pie, unwed mothers, and cheating on your income tax.
The Yankees don't pay me to win every day, just two out of three.
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.
I would rather beat the Yankees regularly than pitch a no hit game.
My God... What are the headlines going to be like on Monday if the Yankees don't make the playoffs?
I became a Yankees fan for a few years. But now, I gotta say, I'm really rooting for the Red Sox.
Sympathy is something that shouldn't be bestowed upon the Yankees. Apparently it angers them.
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 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.
In the building I live in on Park Avenue there are ten people who could buy the Yankees, but none of them could hit the ball out of Yankee Stadium.
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 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.
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.
Everybody says we hated the Yankees. We didn't hate the Yankees. We just hated the way they beat us.
We plan absentee ownership as far as running the Yankees is concerned.
As I have said many times - my father was a great fan of Bill Dickey's and he certainly loved the Yankees. I hope that he would be pleased.
Owning the Yankees is like owning the Mona Lisa.
The only difference between me and those other great Yankees is my skin color.
I am a Yankees fan. I should say - have been to more Yankees games than Mets games.
I was born and raised in the Bronx and my grandfather and my brother Garry were huge Yankees fans. One of my first memories is of them listening to a game on the radio and screaming at the radio. My brother would cry when they lost, and when I was really little, I didn't know why he was crying.
We all used to collect baseball cards that came with bubble gum. You could never get the smell of gum off your cards, but you kept your Yankees cards pristine.
I'm from California, but my father, who passed away when I was young, was from Newark. When I was kid, we would go back east and catch Yankees games. His side of the family are big Yankees fans. But, the real connection came in '97 when I moved to New York and became friends with the team.
I don't believe a manager ever won a pennant. Casey Stengel won all those pennants with the Yankees. How many did he win with the Boston Braves and Mets?
Why do the Yankees always win? The other team can't stop looking at the pinstripes.
I wish there was a bar I could send opposing teams to and get them hammered or something - I could tell my buddies in New York to leave their places open or something. Playing for the Yankees, guys come at you extremely hard. I have to be ready or I'll be embarrassed.
The Yankees won the pennant, we went on to the World Series, 41 years after that in the city of Toronto. The great city of Toronto, and all the provinces in Canada, everybody reached out and they were excited because we won the first World Series ever, across the border.
At least, in this situation, I know my chances of coming back could be slim because of the young talent the Yankees do have.
All ballplayers want to wind up their careers with the Cubs, Giants or Yankees. They just can't help it.
I've played for teams that were family-oriented organizations. They made you feel like family. The Yankees are strictly a business. Baseball is your life and everything else is secondary.
