The Yankees ace, CC Sabathia, is having somewhat of an un-Sabathia-like season. He's already done two stints on the 15-day disabled list, which is strange being that between 2007-2011, he averaged exactly 240 innings pitched and 34 starts per season. He's had stretches where he hasn't been great, yet he does boast an impressive 13-3 record with a somewhat high, but not overly concerning 3.44 E.R.A in 21 starts. When you even delve deeper into the numbers though, he's given up three or more earned runs in 12 of his 21 starts, as opposed to 2011, when he gave up three or more earned runs in just 14 of 33 starts.

He just hasn't gone on that Sabathia run in 2012 where he carries the rotation, is the stopper and the official ace. Last season between June 25 and August 1, he had eight starts

The Yankees with their 3-1 lead are now 27 outs away from their 27th World Championship. Keep it right here during the game for updates on my live blog.

8:00 P.M. First pitch here at the ballpark. I just had a little dinner with Chris Shearn. A roasted pork sandwich with Chickie's and Pete's Crab Fries...mmm mmm. Jeter just grounded out and Damon just got a base hit. How am I doing so far? I keep saying that I think the Yankees are going to win tonight, but I seem to be in the minority here among everyone here.

8:03 P.M. Does A-Rod get hit again? A smattering of boos around the ballpark.

8:05 P.M. New Yankee Postseason record with 16 RBIs now for A-Rod surpassing Scott Brosius from 1998 and Bernie Williams from 1996. Why does anyone continue to pitch to this guy? Good start for the

Back by popular demand is the Meet at the Bat live blog for a game five showdown between the Angels and Yankees. After a game three let down in which the Yankees had a chance to go up 3-0 in the series, it felt as if the momentum might shift back to the Angels in the series. However, CC Sabathia and the resurgence of the Yankees offense swung the pendulum back in the Bombers favor. Now up 3-1 in the series, the Yankees have an opportunity to do two things tonight; win the 40th American League Pennant in the history of the franchise and get back to the World Series since 2003. Many Yankees fans and the Yankees themselves can use this game to exorcise some deamons from a 2004 ALCS that they would like to forget.

Keep it here for the live blog starting at game time.

7:57 P.M. Another shock.

It's a special Meet at the Bat tonight for Game Four. I figure that I'm watching the game and Tweeting my thoughts anyway @JoeAuriemmaNYY, I might as well watch the game with all of my friends. Once again, I am at the YES Studio in Stamford, CT, which is where I will be for Yankees Postseason games when the team is on the road, as long as they are still in the postseason.

Game three was really intriguing. The Yankees are still having troubles hitting with runners in scoring position and Joe Girardi is getting a lot of blame for the way he handled his bullpen. Really Girardi has played russian roulette with the way he has handled his pitching staff in every close game in the 2009 postseason to this point. He has become obsessed with batter by batter matchups, which until
