The balance of power

This from the Yankees:

When Hideki Matsui homered on Wednesday, he joined Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher as Yankees with at least 25 jacks.

That hasn’t happened since 1938 when Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Bill Dickey and Joe Gordon did it. That bunch went 99-53 and swept the Cubs in the World Series, outscoring them 22-9.

Joe D went .324/.386/.581 that year with 32 homers and 140 RBI at the age of 23. He also had 13 triples. Imagine that, at 23?
