New York Yankees Franchise History:
The New York Yankees were founded as the Baltimore Orioles in 1901 before moving to New York in 1903. The Yankees have become the most well supported franchise in Major League Baseball and are one of the most recognizable sporting teams in the world. It took the franchise twenty-two years to win their first World Series but since then have won the World Championships a remarkable twenty-seven times making them by far the most successful franchise in MLB history. After dominating in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s the franchise had a brief period of decline before winning the 1977 World Series. After their 1978 triumph the Yankees went eighteen years without winning the World Series – the second longest championship drought in the history of the franchise. Remarkably the 1980s and, to this point, the 2010s are the only decades since the 1910s when the Yankees failed to win a World Series. The Yankees limitless payroll means that they will be perennial World Champion contenders.
New York Yankees Offensive Star: Robinson Cano
Robinson Cano was signed as an amateur free agent by the New York Yankees in 2001. After spending four years in the Yankees minor league system he was called out to the Majors in 2005 and had a stellar rookie year finishing the season as runner-up for the American League Rookie of the Year Award. The second baseman has been a regular contributor for the Yankees ever since and played a key role in their 2009 World Series triumph. Since 2010 Cano has been the Yankees leading hitter and is four-time MLB All-Star and winning of the Silver Slugger Award. The thirty-year-old just signed a contract extension that will keep him at the Yankees for at least another year.
New York Yankees Defensive Star: CC Sabathia
CC Sabathia was drafted in the first round of the 1998 MLB draft by the Cleveland Indians. Sabathia made his MLB debut in 2001 and, at the time, was the youngest player in the league. He finished second in the voting for the American League Rookie of the Year Award after becoming a key member of the Indians pitching rotation. Sabathia kicked off from his rookie campaign and has become one of the most consistent elite pitchers in Major League Baseball. The left-hander is a six-time All-Star and in 2007 was awarded the American League Cy Young Award. He spent a season at the Milwaukee Brewers in 2008 before moving to the Yankees in 2009 and leading them to a World Series Championship. Sabathia remains the ace pitcher for the New York Yankees but the franchise has lowered his work-load in an attempt to prolong his career.
New York Yankees Manager: Joe Girardi
Joe Girardi began his managerial career with the Florida Marlins in 2006 and received high praise for leading the franchise into wildcard contention despite having the lowest payroll in Major League Baseball. Despite winning the National League Manager of the Year Award Girardi was fired and sat out a season before joining the Yankees in 2008. The Yankees missed the playoffs in Girardi’s first season in charge but the following season he was able to lead the franchise to their 27th World Series Championship. The Yankees have a stellar regular season record under Girardi but have failed to make an impact in the MLB playoffs in recent seasons. Yankees fans aren’t patient so Girardi will need to return the side to the World Series if he wants to be the long-term manager for the franchise.
