      Can't sleep yet, as I'm still in a state of EUPHORIA over the Yankees big_smile  One more game and we play the Halos!  If Mark Texiera doesn't win MVP, I'll have zero confidence in MLB!

    Those damn Yankees are too lucky for their own good.

    I've got my fingers crossed they've used up all their mojo.

    Enjoy it now boys, the good times are about to end!

      Luck is when opportunity knocks and you answer. . . seems the Yanks are pretty damn good at answering.....

        Luck is preperation, knowledge and tallent comming togeather when an oppertunity presents itself. and The Yankees know how to do that very well...

        But it could Be Yanks and Dogers...watch out for Torri's revenge..? Ya never know!

          Luck certainly favours those who are best prepared. Altho, some may argue there is no such thing as luck.

          Whatever the Yankees have had going in the favour - luck, mojo, talent, preparation - there is still a built-in limitation. It has to end soon, or at least balance itself out... the Angels series could prove quite interesting.

    Well they are in the dome tonight.  Sadly its 2-0 in favor of the Yankees.  I'm still disappointed about their decision for the first game, the Twins didn't even get a 24 hour turn around.

    Those Yankees could be delayed going home tomorrow, with the winter storm warning and all! (giggles)

    The Twins are young, they'll be back! smile

    Alex Rodriguez has been a poor playoff performer in the past.  If they are going to beat the Angels, he's going to have to stay hot.

    Go Angels!

      I gotta say that ever since A-Rod got a divorce, he's been fine in the clutch.  Right now, he's dating Kate Hudson and that seems to be working out okay.  However, Mark Texiera is the best thing that has ever happened to him as a Yankee and vice-versa.  These guys just feed off of each other and are in impossible to pitch around...Seriously, who would you rather walk?  Pick your poison I say...

      The Angels are going to be tough...The Yankees will definitely have to win their first two games at home and then win 2 out of 3 in Los Angeles.  I think I'll have a heart attack if this series goes to Game 7 yikes

      With that said, Yankees in 5 big_smile

    Finally!  The Yankees are playing again tomorrow after a 4-day hiatus!  Going back to what I said: Yankees in 5 big_smile  I'm gonna need a Yaegermeister for company if it goes to game 6 or 7 big_smile

    Tonight is the night A.J. Burnett has to shine.  He's been shaky at best and needs to keep his control not to mention his composure.  The only way he's gonna win tonight is if he gets an early lead.  He has to pitch at least 6 and 2/3 of an inning and then let Coke, Aceves, and Mo take it from there.

    I don't mean to blow the whistle, but Game 2 is huge for the Yankees.  If Burnett can get first-pitch strikes early and often he will win.  "Como el Dulce" better not have a good game!
