The New York Yankees and Atlanta Braves have earned top mid-term honours in Major League Baseball

December 6, 2010

The great team New York Yankees, enter the second half of the 2010 MLB season with the best record in the league and to much to complain about other than the inconsistent bullpen. During the first half the Yankees received the usual production from players like CC Sabathia, Andy Pettitte , Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, and Jorge Posada. They also got some surprise performances from guys like Nick Swisher and Brett Gardner. It is only fitting that on the day of the 81st MLB All-Star Game and on the day when well-known New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner passed away, that the Yankees has been named as “America’s favorite baseball team” for the eighth successive year in a poll conducted by Harris Interactive. There is no doubt that The New York Yankees, who own baseball’s best record at the All-Star break, are the top-ranked team in USA TODAY’s power rankings. Next the Yankees are the Tampa Bay Rays. New York Yankees will pay tribute to “The Boss” and “The Voice of God” before Friday’s game. The team will have a ceremony for longtime Yankees’ owner George Steinbrenner and well-known announcer Bob Sheppard before their game Friday night, the team announced. Both the legendary men passed away within days of each other earlier this week, taking with them decades of Yankee lore. The baseball team plans to have a video tribute to Steinbrenner and a moment of silence for Sheppard before its game against the Tampa Bay Rays. The New York Yankees and Atlanta Braves have earned top mid-term honours in Major League Baseball, but the six-month long season is hardly half over as teams resume the season following the All-Star break. The Great World Series champion Yankees set the pace with a 56-32 record and have little time to mourn Tuesday’s loss of owner George Steinbrenner as AL East rivals Tampa Bay are coming to the Bronx for a three-game series this week. This was really a pretty astonishing day in baseball, not because of anything that happened on the field, but because the Yankees did not get Cliff Lee. The great Yankees almost always get what they want when they want it. They didn’t get their man Friday. Man bites dog. The New York Yankees blew two leads and one save, and had three runners thrown out at home plate two on back-to-back plays in the fifth inning in Sunday’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays.
