As we wait for yet another west coast night game to begin, I figured an open thread was in order.
I went to Baseball Reference’s website to look at this date in Yankee history and, if you know me well, you know I was only looking at years that ended in a “0” or a “5.” Well, guess what? I looked at four different years and the Yankees lost three out of the four games. The lone victory came on June 2, 2000.
The Yankees were playing the Braves in Turner Field, El Duque made the start (and got the win) and the hitting star of the night, was none other than Ricky Ledee.
He was 2 for 3 with a home run, a double and a walk. He scored once and had four RBI.
Good for him.
Anyway, you know the drill. Discuss whatever you’d like, be respectful and enjoy your evening. The game thread will be up at 9:30.…
