This was the most frightening Yankees moment I can remember…

This was the most frightening Yankees moment I can remember…

by Derek McAdam

October 31, 2021


One of the scariest moments I can remember as a Yankee fan came when the Yankees traded for Giancarlo Stanton. Although I knew Stanton was fresh off an MVP season with the Marlins in 2017 and was excited to see what he could bring to Yankee Stadium, he still had ten seasons on his contract as he was entering his late 20s.

This was a great move for the short-term, but could potentially be devastating long-term. Through the first four seasons, Stanton has had two solid seasons (2018 and 2021), but has also had a couple of great postseasons (2020 and 2021). After all, they did acquire him so he could help them in the postseason, and has carried the offense over the past two.

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
