On Wednesday, the New York Yankees completed their second consecutive four-game sweep of the World Series, winning the title for the third time in four years and for the 25th time this century. The game, incidentally, was also the team's twelfth Series win in a row (tying the record set by the "Murderers' Row" Yankees of the late 1920s) and future Hall of Famer Roger Clemens's 250th career win. Sports writers have, of course, commented extensively on this impressive performance, many stating that it is only fitting that a century of baseball should draw to a close "in pinstripes." Love them or hate them, no team has been so successful and so dominating as the New York Yankees. In New York, at least, they certainly do love their Bronx Bombers, and a ticket tape parade will be held today in their honor.
