    1 MILLION?!?!?!
    1 MILLION?!?!?! that's all?????? :shock:

    by some reports we doubled or tripled that number last year...and your city has about 7 million more people! .....


    http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/yank ... 3CoJ0HcqGM

    In the morning, an estimated crowd of 1 million lined Broadway to celebrate the title. The players, standing on floats, made their way through Wall Street toward City Hall Plaza as confetti rained down from nearby office buildings

    All my buddies that went to the last Giants parade and this parade said there was a whole lot more people there today than there were for the Giants. They said there were too many people today.

    Also, when you only win twice in 100+ years the whole city has to turn out.

    I was as well. Crowd was weak for at least the first game of the series, but they didnt have much to get into in that game.

    watching the game i was shocked at how quiet it seemed during the latter innings for game 6 of the world series. seemed like they were more excited to ask pedro who his father was.

    Then again, I commented to people I was with about how quiet the Phillies fans were in game 4 when the Phillies were only down by a run before they tied it up.

    The only game I went to was game 2 of the ALCS and the crowd was great.

    "and at 9:04pm this crowd has come to life"
    Joe Buck. Game 2.

    it was obvious the yankee fans were much quiter than phils fans. has something to do with charging a few grand for the best seats in the house i would suspect.

    I'd say the Yanks fans were loud as a fuck today
    Over 1 million lined the streets of Broadway and The Canyon Of Heroes
    early today , in very chilly temps .
    In fact they were out there all night, lining up for todays festivities.

    I know its already November 8th , and even the tickertape
    has already been all swept up and recycled already .

    Its almost a long gone memory already,
    but last night at MSG we were still celebratiing.

    Even for those who are not avid fans of Springsteen,
    Last night @ The Garden , you can really see and feel
    that he is a diehard NY Yankee fan and has always been .

    Take a look at these 2 videos I shot

    First , the very end of " Does This Bus Stop at 82nd ? "

    Bruce holds up one of the placards we all saw the day of the parade.
    The pinstriped " 27 NY Yankees World Champions "
    He then says " Its gotta be done ! "
    before the opening lyrics and chords, Bruce again says " Congratulations NY ! "
    The band goes straight into Glory Days.
    Into the final verse, Stevie comes and joins in while Bruce starts announcing Yankee names,
    ......Mariano , Jeter, Damon , Girardi, and Swisher were all prominently featured .
    This happens right around 3:09 into the song.

    Well received by the hometown crowd.

    :)

    was he better this year defensively, probably ... is he the best defensive shortstop in the AL ... no.

    Gold Golves are a joke.

    Like when Rafael Palmeiro won when he only played like 30 games at 1st. Tino should've won that year.

    exactly.

    but hey, Jeter had an outstanding year at the plate, so, he deserves the gold glove.

    there is no composite stat that has Jeter as the best defensive SS in the AL. No way.

    On stright fielding percentage, perhaps ... but that doesn't account for the fact his range is far less than most and he's also got a gold glove 1st basman to help him avoid some errors.

    I'm sure if you look at those range inclusive (UZR?) ratings, Jeter's not #1 ... more likely the fringe of the top 5.

    the glaring stat is jeter had 8 errors this season while everyone else was in the top 10 had 8-25 errors

    Proving my point. His fielding percentage is great ... but that number next to it ... "RF", is range, and Jeter's is the lowest in the top 20 shortstops.

    Tough to make errors when you can't get to as many balls.

    so because he has no range your gonna discredit his 8 errors :roll: :lol: :lol:. he's 35 years old and isn't even the best ss on his time. lets factor that in than.

    I'm as big as a yankee hater as the next person, but you can't deny jeters stats are the best outta the top 5 ss. baseball is a stats game and jeters got the stats year in and year out.

    Doesn't it make sense that if one has a limited range, that does discredit the error factor a bit? He's going to have less chances than others, thus, less errors.

    Again, he had a good year defensively ... but, he's not the best defensive shortstop in the AL, no way.

    Let me find the composite stats ... I'll bet he's top 5 because the low error total, but that's it.

    well than you have to factor in age and games played in the season

    age? Why should someone's age factor into who's the best defensive shortstop?

    Are you stating Jeter should get a handicap because he's older?

    age is def a factor cause it limits your range. go look at the ages of players in the top 10 ss and range and than look at jeters age and range.

    I agree, age is a definite factor ... but, he shouldn't get a break because he's older and can cover less ground, that's silly.

    i wasn't saying he should get a break at all. i was merly saying cause of his age his range is gonna be less than other players. 8 errors is still 8 errors no matter what your range or age is.
