The Yankees saved the day for NY Sports. One more to go.

I wonder if Melky is alright and if he starts on Monday night?

Gonna tuck this thread back in the baseball forum. I will move it back in time for Game 5.

Go Yankees!

The one ****ing time I fall asleep in the fifth inning, I miss a classic. I suck.

Yeah, me too. I just couldn't hang in there. Halloween party, wake up at like 730 to start tailgating for the Jets, Debacle, 3 hours of traffic and crying hysterically in my car, then I was just spent.

Johnny will forever be remembered in my eyes for that AB after (probably) he is gone after this year.

From 0-2 and no one on to a 3-run inning. This team's offense is incredible. They never give away outs.

At bat of the World Series IMO.

It will be on Yankeography forever!!!!!

As it stands right now, who would be the MVP if the Yanks pull it out.

Moe? A.J. if he wins again? I can't think of any consistent bats that deserve it.

I say give it to Jeter. I think he is hitting over .400 and he is totally dreamy.

The baseball postseason is an East Coast sleep deprivation experiment. Which is why it would be great (among many other reasons) for the Yankees to close the Phils out tonight.

You're not kidding. I'm working on 2 hours of sleep a night max. Makes it kind of tough to go to the gym or practice after work. It was much easier when I was a kid.

I was talking to someone at work about this...Damon and Matsui are FAs, and both about 35-36. ARod himself is 34-35, as is Jeter, amd Mo must be like 50 by now.

As good as they have been playing - and if they win a WS it certainly proves the "older" guys can do it - how well have we been managing the farm system?

Do we have a stacked deck down there to begin replacing Jeter, ARod, Matsui, etc.? Admittedly these guys are all-time clutch players, but it seems that the next generation of players who should be about ready to step in for these older guys like Melky, Cano, Hughes, Joba, etc., just lack the same magic.

Yanks don't rebuild, they reload.

Wow, our lineup really sucks tonight.

If AJ somehow musters a dominant performance, on the road, on short rest, he will he the MVP of the World Series.

Go Yanks!! Get to Lee!!

This lineup is awful. ARod is going to get the Barry Bonds treatment tonight.

AJ has to pitch out of his mind tonight for the Yankees to win.
