In fact, you have to go back to 2006 to find the last time the Yankees were in first place on August 30th.
So, how do you feel about this Yankees season, right now? Are you as excited as you were in 2006? More? Less? Why?
Me? I still have to see the Yankees play well in the ALDS before I start to get truly pumped. The fact that the Yankees sat at home last October hasn’t made me forget that they have lost 13 of their last 17 post-season games played. I want to see New York win a post-season series…and I want to see it in the 2009 ALDS. And, if the Yanks lose the 2009 ALDS, and win only one game, or less, in the process…well…boy…am I going to be ticked. And, to be honest, it will make this whole season – and all the comebacks and wins – not all that it should be…
…how about you? Feel the same?
