    Yesterday, I wore my “Yankees” jacket for the first time in 2012.

    Actually, it was the first time that I have worn it in a while.  How long?  Read on.

    When I put on the jacket, I realized there was something in one of the pockets.  When I pulled it out, I realized that it was my ticket stubs from Game 5 of the 2011 ALDS between the Yankees and the Tigers.

    Yes, the game that everyone in Yankeeland thought was a gimmie win – and the game where New York had:

    • The bases loaded with one out in the 4th and could not score.
    • The bases loaded with one out in the 7th and A-Rod struck out.

    And, in the end, the Yankees lost, 3-2.

    That was four months ago – the last time that I wore my Yankees jacket.

    Like a lot of Yankees fans, I have put that game far away in my memory.  Now, I wonder, is that a mistake?

      It was one of the more frustrating games I remember watching.

      I still think Montero should’ve PH for Martin.

      And he struck out to end the game too…

      Honestly Steve, I never felt comfortable with that series.. Tigers had better pitching than us and Verlanders status for 2011 were off the charts.. We simply didnt get any clutch hitting.. Yes the point is, Clutch hitting.. who can we count on for 2012?.. Where is Scott Broius these days??..
