There are numerous times when Joe Girardi is asked questions and gives brief answers. That is Girardi's approach as the manager of the Yankees. Sometimes, topics are off limits. But there are also times when Girardi offers enough insight to reveal what he is thinking. I think Girardi did that during his end-of-the season press conference in Houston.

If you analyzed Girardi's answers that day, you wouldn't have been surprised that Girardi agreed to a 4-year, $16 million deal Wednesday to remain as the Yankees manager. As a relaxed Girardi sat in the dugout on that Sunday, he was chatty about his future. My evaluation of what Girardi uttered is that he needed to talk with his family, but that he was almost certain to be back with the Yankees in 2014.

In the end, that's what happened.

We all knew Mariano Rivera was going to pitch at Yankee Stadium for the final time on Thursday night. We all knew the bullpen door was going to open and Rivera was going to jog to the mound and do what he has done for almost two decades. We all knew the star of the show and we all knew what was supposed to be in the script. We had this night all figured out, right?

But there wasn't actually a script for Rivera's last appearance in pinstripes. There was emotion, an endless flow of emotion from the unforgettable pitcher, and there were tears, an abundance of tears that Rivera predicted would never appear. So, on a night where we all thought we knew what to expect, we witnessed scenes that we had never envisioned. Rivera's good-bye was riveting.

Even though we presumably knew what was about

Not every interview is memorable. Sometimes, it's the questions that are uninspiring. Sometimes, it's the answers that are unfulfilling. But this 2004 interview with Alfonso Soriano resonated with me. I remember how focused he was about proving that he had moved on from his beloved Yankees. It didn't work.

Three months after Soriano was the other player in the epic trade that sent Alex Rodriguez to the Yankees from the Rangers in 2004, we spoke in Arlington, Texas. Soriano explained how he would always cherish his memories with the Yankees, but that he was happy with the Rangers. Then Soriano said something revealing about his three years in New York.

"The only bad moment I had," he said, "was when I heard the trade."

Obviously, he didn't want to leave. Throughout that interview, I thought
