This team is starting to get that “Today we play, today we win – dat’s it.” feel to it.
Back on August 29th, Johnny Damon said:
“I think we’re the best team out there,” Johnny Damon said. “We have to show it. We have to go for the jugular. We have to start abusing people.”
Since Damon said that, including this win today, the Yankees have gone 8-4. And, if Scott Proctor gets one more out in one of those games, the record would be 9-3.
Now, you have games like today – where usual heroes Damon, Melky and Jeter are joined by guys like Fasano and Green.
This team is starting to form an attitude, and it’s a good one – it’s right in line with what Damon called for at the start of this run.
