I'm not sure that watching wrestling as a teenager and then growing out of it makes one a bad class of person.

I went to ESPN.com just now to check out the Sawx's schedule to see if they will be in town when we are in Beantown later this summer (#HB) and I noticed that at the top of their MLB page there is a link titled "'27 Yankees". I figured it must be some kind of "Heat Check"-like tracker comparing the 2016 Cubs to that team, but I clicked on it and it takes you here: The Diary of Myles Thomas

There is a post on that page explaining it: Introducing the Diary of Myles Thomas

It is a tale told by a bit player on the ’27 Yankees — pitcher Myles Thomas. In true life, Thomas was an insignificant member of the team, and for the purposes of this work the creators are using only his baseball statistics. They are creating his diary and letters, through which Thomas will introduce us not only to his teammates but also to luminaries of the day who cavorted with the ballplayers, from Louis Armstrong and Bix Beiderbecke to Barbara Stanwyck and Al Jolson. Lesser lights may play major roles: Myles’s Penn State teammate Hinkey Haines, still the only man to play for a championship team in the NFL and in MLB; Fred Merkle of “bonehead” fame, a coach with the ’27 Yanks; Gertrude Ederle, who swam the English Channel that year; Paul Robeson, who was once Lou Gehrig’s baseball coach; Ty Cobb, John McGraw and Rube Foster. Truly, the cast would do justice to a Sol Hurok gladiator epic.

But first and last, in 1927 and perhaps in all of American legend, is Babe Ruth, the Sultan of Swat, the Beatified Bambino, the Paul Bunyan of Baseball. Had he not lived, we would have had to make him up. The embodiment of the Jazz Age, “he was a parade all by himself,” wrote Jimmy Cannon, “a burst of dazzle and jingle. Santa Claus drinking his whiskey straight and groaning with a bellyache caused by gluttony…. Babe Ruth made the music that his joyous years danced to in a continuous party….” In the summer of ’27 Charles Lindbergh would briefly eclipse Babe Ruth as the one-man parade and darling of the newsreels, but by season’s end Ruth had retaken his pedestal.


Might be interesting reading for Jike and others. The part about Fred Merkle will probably interest BSMB. /bonerjoke

Seems like the Yanks are getting hot...while selling. Impressive if you can pull it off.

Yankee fans finally realize this team wont do shit so the potential is exciting. Also they see the Mets guys and assume that they will have the same success.

The Yanks did have an incredible run with that homegrown group of Jeter/Posada/Bernie/etc. It's rare to catch lightning in a bottle like that, but I could see why the fans would like to try that again.

Yeah they're a real organic rags to riches success story.

Was talking with my Brewers friend tonight, and maybe Yankees fans don't get this but the one thing a shitty team can cling to is a top 5 farm system. It's the gold at the end of the rainbow. You can deal with a 100 loss season after another 100 loss season as long as you say "But wait until Falalah McFuckCheese comes up!"

Though you have to have at least 3 arms on that path. Haven't paid attention that much to the trades but I'm not sure the Yanks have that yet. For all the pomp and circumstance thrown the Twins way the past couple years, they have not had any arms. Except Alex Meyer who *fartnoise* And Barrios who WOLF TELL THAT MOTHERFUCKER TO TRADE HIM TO ME NOW BECAUSE I AM COMPLETELY RATIONAL ABOUT HIS POTENTIAL. ahem. But yeah, gotta have arms in the farm system to actually hold out that hope.

What's not organic about your dirtbag owner being suspended for hiring convicts to fuck with his players, thereby allowing front office to build up your farm system without pressure to win now? Scarcely a world champion in decades has built their team any other way.
