It was a happy day in the Bronx yesterday. It was Jorge Posada day at Yankee Stadium. The former Yankee catcher joined the legacy of other former great Yankee catchers by having his number retired, as well as receiving a plaque in Monument Park. His number 20 will never be worn again by another Yankee player. To make the day even happier, the Yankees finally managed to not only defeat the Cleveland Indians, but also give Luis Severino his first major league win. Severino was once again pretty spectacular on the mound. It's hard not to feel hopeful for his future in pinstripes. It's probably the same feeling a lot of Yankee fans felt when a young rookie by the name of Andy Pettitte first came up in the 90's. Today, Pettitte will also get a plaque in Monument Park, and his number 46 will be retired. Let's get him a win on his special day as well.

Matt Fleek was on fleek yesterday, so he fleeking wins the HMM.

Song of the Day
Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd
It's 70's Rock Week on Pinstripe Alley. The psychedelic rock sounds of Pink Floyd shall welcome us all into this week. As always, please link us your song of the day.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. CC Sabathia takes the hill in the final game of this four game series. The Yankees are going for the split. I bet that would make Andy Pettitte happy.
