Yankees tie MLB homers record

With Jorge Posada’s 20th home run of the season in the ninth inning tonight off Toronto’s Jason Frasor, the Yankees now have seven players with 20 or more home runs.

That sets a new franchise record and ties a Major League record also shared by the 1996 Orioles, 2000 Blue Jays and 2005 Rangers (credit: Elias Sports Bureau).

The Yankees with 20 or more: Mark Teixeira-32, Johnny Damon-24, Alex Rodriguez-24, Hideki Matsui-23, Nick Swisher-23 and Robinson Cano-22. The old Yankees  franchise record of six players with 20 or more home runs was set in 1961 and tied in 2004.

Skull,
This year Girardi has exceeded my expectations which were lowered after 2008.

Tom,
Duncan and Miranda will likely be added once the IL playoffs are over.

If Jeter can pop just 3 more as the season winds down, they will have 8.
