Stats via Baseball Musings Day By Day Database. How the Yankees players just did up in the Fenway series:
Lidle, Wang and Proctor stand out among the pitchers. And, Giambi, Damon, Posada, Abreu, and Cano stand out among the hitters. But, also, don’t forget about the two big hits from Jeter in this series as well.
Still, if I had to pick one player who had the biggest impact for the Yankees in this series, I would say that it was Damon, no, wait, Proctor. Or, maybe Giambi, or Abreu……….man, this is hard.
So, that’s two “votes” for Proctor and Damon each. They were, most likely, the two key players for the Yankees in this series.
And, since I can’t pick one over the other, in terms of being the “MVP” for the Yankees in this showdown, I’ll call them “co-MVPs” for the series. They both stepped up for the Yankees this weekend and served as leaders for the team.
