C&C Boys Pursuing Homerun Record

It was back in 1999 when Yankee captain Derek Jeter reached the highly coveted 24 homerun mark that he had pursued his entire career. Prior to that season he had been unable to break the 20 homerun mark, but found the extra strength necessary to reach that plateau as he led the Yankees to another world series title.

Now, Melky Cabrera and Robinson Cano's pursuit of the ever elusive Derek Jeter single season homerun mark, set by Derek Jeter, is one for the ages. Cabrera has jumped ahead with 3, while Cano has languished in a seemingly unending slump, which has him stumped at 1. Although this homerun race has not gotten the press coverage it deserves, we at the "Respect Jeter's Gangster" blog feel the need to keep Yankee fans posted. So from now on, we will keep you updated on all the happenings of the legendary C&C homerun chase.

Do it. Maybe establish a countdown on the sidebar or something.

I like the idea Kei. Take a look.

Awesome! Kind of scary that Melky already has 3 homeruns... And even one from the right side!

Derek said...

How come of all the C&C nicknames kay came up with he didnt suggest the C&C Hit Factory?

but then again, michael kay and pop culture just dont mix.
