What do you expect after 30 years of futility? Things do look better now than they ever have, and it has cooled off from the 100's into the 80's around here. There is hope!

They have now won twice as many playoff games as the Cowboys over the last 10 years.


LMAO!

Going to miss Game 3 due to me being in NYC celebrating John Lennon's B-day with some good friends.

Rest assured I will be checking my phone quite frequently

A Yankee sweep and the team appears totally back on track. Excellent starting pitching. Solid contributions up and down the lineup. They made this series look easy. If I were a team potentially facing them I would not feel terrific.

Helps when u dont have to use AJ Burnett. Hoping Texas can knock off Tampa Bay in the next game as a Texas-New York series could be a good one.

Nice to see the Rays play Ray ball again!
Hats off to New York. They're on fire. Now it's time for a slump again when they meet the Rays.
GO RAYS!!!

A little optimistic. The Rays still have to win two games including one against Cliff Lee. The thing I like about this Yankees team is that they have lots of little ways to beat you. It reminds me of the earlier dynasty teams with Williams Martinez and O'Neill. The thing I don't like is the bullpen which still seems suspect before Rivera.

Last night was one of Wood's few "rough" outings. Luckily it didnt amount to many runs.
And very little Joba action this series..
Boone Logan is death to lefties though. That could neutralize Josh Hamilton late in the game

Actually, they have one way to win. They bludgeon the opponents. They remind me of the Red Sox teams of the 70's and 80's. Lots of hitting, one or two good starters and prayers that they wouldn't have to go to the bullpen much.


That's not true. They don't win 8-7. They find a way to win even when handcuffed by the opposing pitcher they find a way to get on base and make something happen.

How do you figure very little? I would describe it as "none." Girardi doesn't trust Joba and at this point neither do I.

I think the Rangers made a stupid mistake not starting Lee in game 4.

They scored 859 runs. 41 more than Boston who were second in runs scored. That's 1/4 run per game which is actually a lot.


I was talking about post-season when the runs tend to drop as there are no patsies who can be lit up for 8 or 9 routinely. During the regular season the Yankees did, indeed, score a lot of runs.

Additionally, they don't have one or two good starters. They have one genuine ace and another who is one of the biggest big game pitchers of all time plus Phil Hughes who had a great season even if he struggled for a while. Finally, nobody has ever had a closer like Mariano Rivera.

Before we apply for sainthood for Pettite, remember that the 2010 Pettite is a 5 or 6 inning pitcher without a good bullpen to back him up. The fact that Hughes went 18-8 with a 4.19 ERA proves my point. That is almost 2 full runs more than Felix Hernandez who led the league at 2.27. Hughes finished 29th.

You folks need to learn what we Yankee fans already know. The regular season is not the post-season. For example, Derek Jeter has never been the best player in baseball statistically. But I daresay anyone who has followed post-season baseball over the last 14 years understands what he brings to the table when the chips are down. The same is true in spades of Andy. He is a serious serious big game pitcher. He has had bad starts and of course he is not unhittable. But there are few pitchers in baseball I would rather have on the mound with first and third one out. The Yankee bullpen may or may not be reliable. Though it is nothing compared to the bullpen of 1996-2000, it is probably as good as any other in baseball with the incomparable Rivera being there for the 9th and sometimes the 8th inning. Obviously we all had questions about Hughes going into the playoffs. One of the reasons his era is so high is because of his tendency to give up home runs when he makes a simple mistake. But the reality is that he pitched seven brilliant shutout innings and really could have pitched the 8th as well. He was cruising. Of course Burnett is a wild card. But I am happy with Sabbathia and Pettitte as the one and two. Anything can happen but I would favor the Yankees over either Texas or Tampa. The World Series might be another story but it is a long way off.

OK, you are looking through pinstripe glasses. No further conversation is necessary.


That may be. But five world series in the past 14 years ain't beanbag. I think I've become accustomed to what a winner looks like.
