    Another Spring Training type game today.

    Still, a win is a win – and this one gave the Yankees 94 for the season (which is their lowest season victory total since 2000). Considering how they started, getting to 94 wins is, well, in the words of Larry David, prittay, prittay, good.

    Nice that Torre let Posada run the team today. I actually think Posada will make an excellent manager someday in the future. He’s a catcher – so, he knows pitching. He’s worked hard to make himself a great switch-hitter. And, he comes from a baseball family. It’s in his blood. Plus, he can speak Spanish too. There’s a lot of things going for him there, if he wants to lead a team after his playing days are over.

      94 wins. 55-28 in the second 81 games. And down the stretch, a rather comfortable stroll to the Wildcard.

      I know that we’re supposed to believe that the season is a failure if it doesn’t end in a championship, but I think the Yankees deserve credit and praise for what they did this season. Who saw them, four months ago, coming out with 94 wins and a solid wild-card win? Credit to Torre, Jeter, and Alex for daily never-give-up leadership and credit to the rest of the team for stepping it up. They’ve made me proud to be a Yankees fan!
