      Before we begin, let’s give a big shout out to the Red Sox fans, Met fans, The Rally Monkey, ESPN, Mike Duplica, Joe Torre (and all his acolytes), and all the Yankee haters out there……enjoy watching Law & Order tonight.

      I would like to take this time to formally predict Yankees in 5.

      I’ll take Yanks in 6. For MVP, I won’t go with the chalk – off the top I’ll say Damon.

      Hmm MVP? I think I’m going to go with Mo. I sense many multi-inning saves in his future.

      Whassup fellas. Almost forgot what this feels like. Lookin forward to hopefully another good start from CC. If I had to guess MVP…I’d say Mo. If Mo gets MVP, then we’ve done allright, lol.

      Yep, baseball’s the only game where you play almost every day for 6 months……then play 9 games in three weeks.

      Funny you mention that because I remember watching Game 1 against the Marlins back in 2003, two nights after the Aaron Boone HR, and I was astounded how dead quiet the crowd sounded that night.

      ehhh, first World Series game, probably a little nerves & OD of adrenaline.

      I didn’t know if it was that good or whether he & Ruiz were crossed up.

      Semi-related – thank goodness the Rockies didn’t make the WS. Colorado got 18 inches of snow today.

      @ 77yankees:
      I’d take the Rockies over these guys, tho. The weather would suck, I agree

      Game 7 would end up being on Thanksgiving.

      Does Jay-Z really need to be involved with the World Series? This is not the NFL.

      That was Jay-Z? I thought it was the guy who played Steve Urkel.

      I would really prefer CC to not have a huge pitch count this game. He is going to pitch on short rest after all.

      Geez..at this rate Lee could pitch 18 innings…frustrating

      Dammit why does Cliff Lee have to hurl an all-time postseason game now?

      I said this because I figure my luck will make the opposite happen.

      He’d better hope he does – would you want Brad Ledge coming in the 9th to protect a 1-0 lead?

      He’s survived the tight rope act thus far this post season.

      Matsui is an jerk for not sliding in. Cano is just a complete idiot.

    46. 77yankees
      October 28th, 2009 | 9:39 pm

      Mick Kelleher should be doing his job in the 1st base coaching box.

    47. Corey
      October 28th, 2009 | 9:55 pm

      Dilemma, with CC at 104 pitches do you call it a game for him with game 4 (and game 7 where CC is pitching on short rest) in mind?

    48. 77yankees
      October 28th, 2009 | 9:57 pm

      I say give him another inning.

    49. October 28th, 2009 | 10:07 pm

      2-0, end of six.
      I have a feeling the Yanks will score in the 7th. If they don’t, they won’t score in the 8th…leaving the 9th as the next best shot.

      Another walkoff? Let’s hope so….

      Steve, I get a little worried when you feel more positive than I do! This game is not going to plan so far.

    51. 77yankees
      October 28th, 2009 | 10:10 pm

      Remember, Lackey looked untouchable for 6 innings 5 days ago, and boom, look what happened in the 7th.

      October 28th, 2009 | 10:13 pm

      I have a feeling Matsui is gonna put one in the seats when he comes up.

      Brutal. Note to Yanks relievers: the plate is that five sided white thingy dudes.
