Re: History of Yankee Players who won the James P. Dawson Award

It seems like it is. In the early years the award winners stayed with the team for a while before being traded away by the team.

Re: Yankees Off Season Thread

I hope that MLB gets the 2020 season schedule straighten out. I would drop the Inter League games from the 2020 schedule. Also, I would have Sunday doubleheaders in July and August with Monday being a day off. I hope that we don't lose the MLB All Star Game.
