The 2010 season was an eventful one for the Yankees as the team looked to become the first back-to-back champions since, well, they were the back-to-back-to-back champions from 1198-2000. As we all know, the Yankees were eluded of another WS run, but there were still a lot of good things that happened this season. Here are my picks for the best of the Yankees 2010 season:
Sabathia's 21 wins - CC lead all AL pitchers with 21 wins in 2010. He finished the season with a 3.19 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 197 strikeouts, which placed him 6th in the AL, and 3rd in the AL Cy Young voting.
Yankees 95 wins - With AJ Burnett's horrible season, Andy Pettitte's late-season absence on the DL, Jeter and Texeira's poor hitting and weaknesses in the bullpen, the Yankees still managed to win 95 games and come within only 2 games of returning to the WS.
family hosting a quadruple amputee; a blind woman who regularly travels 2 hours from New Jersey to see Yankee games; a civil war refugee from Sierra Leone in Africa who works multiple jobs to support his family back home; a team of "Beautiful People" play on the field at the stadium; two young girls who have battled homelessness and work to help support their mother.
