Friday afternoon Yankees notes: Another win over the Red Sox

Even on a chilly December day, finding a way to score a victory over the Boston Red Sox can leave a New York Yankees fan with a warm feeling.

Admittedly, it's a small one, but I came across the following  item today.

Yankee Stadium scores win over Fenway Park - BostonHerald.com

Readers of SportsBusiness Journal gave top honors to the Bronx Bombers’ $1.5 billion baseball stadium that opened in April. Friendly Fenway finished second, followed by the Chicago Cubs’ Wrigley Field, Philadelphia Phillies’ Citizens Bank Park and the San Francisco Giants’ AT&T Park.

Fenway, a field of dreams (or nightmares) since 1912, had topped the trade publication’s list since its inception in 2005.

"The Yankees’ new home received plenty of attention and raised the bar for major league ballparks," said David Bourne, a SportsBusiness Journal editor. "But as earlier surveys show, people really like the classics. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Fenway back in the top slot next year after some of the shine of the new Yankee Stadium wears off."

A small victory, sure, but a victory nonetheless.

 

  • Regular readers know that, quite often, I refer to these Yankee notebooks using the moniker 'Around the Yankee Universe.' Well, this story doesn't apply directly to us here at Pinstripe Alley, but maybe I should stop using the 'Yankee Universe' tag, anyway.
  • Was Watching dredges up the ugly memory of Andy Morales when thinking about the possibility of signing Aroldis Chapman. The more I think about the cost of signing this guy, and the seemingly huge risk that he will never amount to anything, the more I want the Yankees to just run in the other direction.
