      OK folks…Chad “Waiting patiently for my turn” Gaudin coming in.

      Hopefully he gets 3 quick outs so we can all go to bed happy.

      @ MJ:
      Haha I think the Yanks did a lot better when I was gone. I was definitely watching though, CC is worth every freakin’ penny and there is no doubt about it.

      I was at BP at one of the last home games this year, and the guy net to me keeps yelling, “Phil………Phil” at Gaudin, who was in the OF with his jacket on.

      Gaudin finally turns around and says to the guy, “Sorry, I’m not Phil”. LOL

      @ YankCrank:
      What happened is:

      1) CC is the best in-his-prime, top-5 MLB starter to pitch in pinstripes since Ron Guidry;

      2) A-Rod continues to spit in the eye of the haters with another HR, 3 R, 2 RBI;

      3) Posada had about as bad a game as any player could have in a victory; and

      4) Slowly, the Yanks previous non-contributors (Melky/Cano) got some big base hits.

      We’re 1 out away from order being restored to the universe.

      Well-put sir, this game sure had a lot of screwy moments too.

      Enjoy the night and sleep well, Yanks are one win away from the World Series!

      AMEN!

      One night after Girardi shits all over the game, CC makes the game idiot-proof.

      One win away from Phase 3 of Plan World Domination.

      After reading through all that….MJ, you really gotta try decaffeinated, guy.

      You’re gonna have a stroke before the post-season is over.

      1. Yanks 4-17 with RISP. 3-15 while the game was in doubt, and one of those was the RBI-less double by Cano…he finally got a hit with a RISP, an extra-base hit, and Posada turned it into a non-RBI.

      2. Terrible base-running by Posada, Cano and Swisher.

      3. I mentioned this awhile ago, I’ll mention it again. 1996: Yanks won the title while hitting 27-140 .193 with RISP for the post-season combined. 1998: Yanks won the title while hitting exactly .200 with RISP for the whole post-season. This is how: a lot of chances, a couple of key hits, and dominant starting pitching. Yanks are now 7-42 with RISP in this series, .167, and 13-59 for the post-season as a whole, which is .220. And they’re still 6-1 in the post-season, outscoring their opposition 37-16.

      4. Another Yankee starter went at least 6 innings. AJ’s thrown two solid games, Andy a great one, and a decent one. But CC has been lights out, he’s the hero of the post-season. Well, him and A-Rod.

      5. I thought A-Rod would have a decent post-season, but never did I ever imagine he would ever have a wet dream post-season like this. So far, he’s not just hitting the living excrement out of the ball almost every time up, he’s fielding well, and his base-running has been both aggressive and superbly judged. (Well, except for missing the stop sign in Game 1. And even then, he knocked over the catcher, and didn’t slap the ball…)

      And finally, 6. Before the series, everybody was thinking the Big Question? How do the Yanks stop the Angels’ running game? As if the answer hasn’t been the same for over 100 years of Major League Baseball: “You can’t steal first base.” The Angels’ pitching is good, but their real threat is their aggressive attack, especially with RISP. As great as A-Rod has been, and he has been magnificent so far, the MVP is: CC Sabathia, for slamming the door on this nemesis twice.

      Hey, I think, FOR GOOD LUCK, we should have MJ start a game thread, now, for every game remaining in this post-season! 😉

      1.) GIVE JORGE A BREAK
      Everyone seems to be upset with Posada’s play. Well, I say let’s give him a break———-How does 2 days off sound?

      2.) WHY THE WORLD HATES YANKEES FANS
      The Yankees are now 6-1 this post season, yet less than 24 hours ago we were all secreaming for Girardi’s head on a platter—with a Joba garnish—over the one loss; a tight, extra-inning affair that could have gone either way.

      …I don’t think I was screaming for Girardi’s head on a platter. ‘

      What? You didn’t mean everybody?
      Never mind.

      @ Evan3457:
      Decaf is like non-alchoholic beer. What’s the point?

      @ Steve Lombardi:
      I’ll do my best!

      @ Tresh Fan:
      1) LOL, hopefully AJ and Molina take care of business and give Posada more than just two days off.

      2) No one called for Girardi to be fired. Any criticism coming his was was 100% merited, the end result of this season notwithstanding. If “the world” wants to hate Yankee fans for justifably criticizing their manager then that level of hypocricy on their part is fine with me. Ask any fan of any other team how they’d feel…

      You best believe Sux fans would be calling for Francona’s head
