Today on Pinstripe Alley - 1/7/24

Hopefully a restful Sunday awaits after a snowy Saturday.

January 7th marks Alfonso Soriano’s 48th birthday. John wrote an excellent piece on him back in November as part of our Top 100 Yankees series, but just on a personal note, I’ve always had a soft spot for Sori. It’s kind of funny in retrospect because when he was ascendant, he was a slugging second baseman who couldn’t field and I was (at least I think) a competent second baseman who couldn’t hit a lick. My strikeouts put his to shame. But it was so fun to watch him motor around the bases and mash bombs with swagger. Hell, it was fun having him back for a little bit in 2013, too. It made that year a tad more enjoyable anyway.

Happy birthday, Sori!

Today on the site, Noah is on double-barrel action with our two history series as he recounts the Yankees’ trade past with the Cardinals and unsung ‘60s/’70s outfielder Roy White’s stellar career. Later on, John will have the social media roundup.

Questions/Prompts:

1. Did you get any snow yesterday? If so, how much?

2. Are you buckling in for some final-week action in the NFL today? If so, what are you rooting for?
