The President hosts the 2009 World Champion New York Yankees at the White House yesterday and met with every player. The Prez said;
But for the millions of Yankees fans in New York and around the world who bleed blue, nothing beats that Yankee tradition: 27 World Series titles; 48 Hall of Famers — a couple, I expect, standing behind me right now.

Last season, this team continued that legacy, winning 103 games and leaving no doubt who was the best team in baseball.
