Bye bye rally monkey . You no longer dominate the Yankees anymore. It have been 13 long years since your domination start. It was time for your downfall. And what a downfall.
CC was worth every penny Cashman spent. All those plane rides you took, Brian, paid off. What an ace.
A-Rod has finally lived up to his talent. It was a long time coming and now we are the ones reaping the fruit of his labors.
Jeter is Jeter. The postseason is as natural to him as breathing. As for Mariano? What else you say about the greatest closer of all time?
What fools they are at MLB Network , choosing a young kid like Saunders over Pettitte. I am not saying that Saunders is not a good pitcher , because he is. But, let's be honest, how much postseason experience does he have? In this case, you always choose experience, hands down. Despite Mitch Williams and Barry Larkin, we all knew better. Never bet against Pettitte in the postseason, because more than likely you are going to lose.
It was even nice to see guys like Adam Schien and Chris Carlin choke on their words in regard to Pettitte. They both were critical of the Yankees for bringing him back. Funny how the worm turns.
For me, winning the World Series is important, but I am not jumping off the nearest bridge if they don't. To conquer their demons, aka the Angels, is more important. Everything else is icing on the cake.
I look for the usual suspects to keep it going. I expect Swisher to get his act together or I would bench him for Heinske or Gardner.
Joba and Hughes need to be the bridge to Mariano. Hopefully, they will regain their form.
Either way, this is a more even matched series.
