A very pinstriped Thanksgiving (Part II)

Since Chad gave you a few things for the Yankees to be thankful about this morning, I thought I’d weigh in – as I prepare to enjoy some “Turkey for the Table” – with just a few more people/places/things that deserve Yankee gratitude. As they sit down, the Yankees should be giving thanks for …

Mark Philippon: The Yankees very own Dr. Strange-glove operated on Alex Rodriguez’s hip back in spring training and, amazingly, also cured his October-phobia in the process. Well worth the co-pay, I’d say.

Hal Steinbrenner: For his money, for his (relatively) rational approach to winning and losing and for his trust in Brian Cashman. But mostly for not being Hank Steinbrenner.

Tax-exempt bonds: I mean, come on – without them, those fantastic “Legends Seats” would never exist!

Jay-Z (feat. Alicia Keys): For – obviously – making the Yankee cap more famous than a Yankee can.
