From the Journal News -
“We have to come back tomorrow and not play scared,” Johnny Damon said. “We have to believe how good we are. We’re the best team out here and we have to believe that. We need to have more life.”
Next, Damon said “Hey, who are you guys and where’s Mueller, Millar, Bellhorn, Manny and Papi?”
You know that Damon, Jeter, Matsui and Posada are going to show up today. That’s not the issue. Today, the Yankees need big things at the plate from Giambi and A-Rod. Just like the 2004 Red Sox could count on Manny and Ortiz, in a big game like today, Jason and Alex need to be the big men.
Will it happen? We’ll know for sure around 7 pm ET today.
