When you factor in everything, really, I mean, all things considered…the Yankees season to date, the way the team has played lately, all the stuff going on around the team, the news about a trade that happened which means there’s one less player on the market that could have potentially helped New York, who the Yanks were playing today, how they came back in this game, the timing of comeback following Girardi’s spark, who came through for the Yankees, who failed for the Red Sox…when you look at the great big ball that is the Yankees Universe at this moment along with examining every detail of this particular contest, it’s not unreasonable to proclaim this game as being the Yankees best day of the 2008 season, so far…is it?
I don’t think it’s unreasonable. Not at all.
Perfect timing too. The entire Yankees organization and their fans can now ride this good vibe for the forty-something hours that follow this game…and it will somewhat offset all the ugly news tomorrow that’s expected around the martial problems for the new face of the franchise.
