Strange night for me. I was able to catch part of the 4th inning, all of the 5th, and some of the 6th, on YES. But, I gave up on the game after Posada’s ground out to end the top of the 6th and I went to bed. Still, I couldn’t sleep, and, at 1 am ET, I decided to put the game back on.
Then I saw the final score – as the game had just ended.
Is it just me, or, has anyone else noticed that the start of the 2006 season is following the pattern of the 2004 ALCS starting with Game 3:
Game 3 2004 ALCS & Game 1 2006 Season: Yankees win in a rout.
Game 4 2004 ALCS & Game 2 2006 Season: Yankees blow the win in the 9th inning.
Game 5 2004 ALCS & Game 3 2006 Season: Yankees blow the game in the 8th inning.
Game 6 2004 ALCS & Game 4 2006 Season: Yankees only allow 4 runs – but cannot mount a rally at the bat and lose the game.
If this follows the trend, then the Yankees should get their asses kicked in their next game.
Is anyone on the Yankees still talking about how important it is to get off to a fast start?
