    Yeah but now there's a giant arena on top of it and it's underground... so yeah...

      But yes, I agree. Being a sort of Yankee "legend" is more than just being a good player who wore the pinstripes for part of their career. All these big name free agents never really feel like Yankees, they just feel like rented talent. Teixeira, AJ, CC are the latest examples, but going back over the last few years A-Rod, Giambi, Randy Johnson, Clemens, etc., all never really seemed like Yankees. There are a few exceptions though... Tino and Paulie both seem like Yankees to me, and Pettitte would seem like more of one if they didn't botch his re-signing however many years ago (which, what do you know, was due to them being more concerned with going after more rented talent, this time in the form of Gary Sheffield), causing him to leave for Houston.

      My favorite player is Posada, and I think he's been a largely underrated part of the team, at least what he brings to it behind-the-scenes. If he's not the unofficial captain of the team, he's certainly the unofficial co-captain. I hope he sticks around as a bench coach after he stops playing.
      I agree, the way he reacted to being injured last year, showed how much he cares, and what a competitor he is. Definitely a (co) - captain, like munson.

        Yeah but it's not the same as the old Penn Station. That's the one they tore down to build Madison Square Garden.

          Oh for crying out loud.

          YES, it is still called "PENN STATION." The stop on the NJ Transit/Path/Amtrack/LIRR/Subways is still called New York Penn Station (almost got off the Newark Penn Station once, but another story) but it is no longer this:




          Now its...like I said, its like some non-descript airport terminal, underground with no character, no flair, no anything. Its just there. Hell, if you didn't know it was underneath Penn Plaza/MSG, would you even know that it was Penn Station?

            Get the A to 42nd street and walk under the underpass thing to the 7 train, then take the 7 train to Grand Central and get the 4 train there. The B and the D train stop underground, so if you wanna see the stadium from the train, take the 4 train.

            or you could just drive or take a cab. A cab would be kinda expensive though.

                Take the 1 uptown one stop to 42nd St. Take the shuttle (S) to Grand Central, and then get the 4 uptown.

                  They sold the air space to the owners of MSG (BTW, speaking of which its a shame THAT rotunda and marque are lost to history as well) to build the new Garden on top of the railroad and subway platforms.

                      No, they're renovating it.

                              I'm never really there so I can't sound off. I've only been there for a Bon Jovi concert and a Knicks game in 2005.

                                If you are at Herald Square you might as well just take the D train straight shot.
