THAT’S More Like It!

We Won! 1 More And Then Off To The WS!

Before I begin, I feel that I must apologize to my fellow blogger Hyunyoung. Hyunyoung, I am very sorry that I offended you by bad-mouthing your Angels on my last post. I know they are a great team, and I like the way they play the game (I love the running game!). It’s just that when the Yankees lose, I get mad. My actions are inexcusable. I know the Angels beat them yesterday and they played well. I just got carried away. I hope you understand :)

But that is way back now. Last night, the Yankees beat the Angels 10-1, and it was fun for me to watch. Girardi didn’t do anything stupid, and the whole team played well.

Pitching Analysis: C “Cy” was fabulous again. So much for him not pitching well in the postseason. Sabathia pitched 8 innings of 1-run ball, and he did this on 3 days rest! HE’S A BEAST!!!

CC Sabathia enjoys laugher as he continues to earn every dime of contract. The Yankees beat the Angels 10-1 to come within one win of the World Series.

CC had the right to smile last night. And so did I :)

Chad Gaudin pitched a scoreless 9th inning. I’m glad Girardi didn’t do anything stupid last night. I guess I’m a bit hard on Joe. All kidding aside, he is a great manager. It just so happened that the decision he made the other night led to the loss. Wait, this is behind me now, so why am I bringing it up again? It has now been erased from my mind. It’s gone.

Offensive Analysis: I love it when the offense explodes. It’s about time. The Yankees were worrying me with their lack of hitting with runners in scoring position. But last night was different. 10 runs off the solid Angel pitchers. Not too shabby.

The offense started in the 4th. Cano’s RBI single drove in Arod, and my man Melky singled in 2 runs. Nice to see him do something clutch. In the 5th, Alex hit a no-doubter 2-run homer to give the Yanks a 5-0 lead. Also in the 5th, something crazy happened. Posada stole a base! I could not believe what I saw. There was a lot of weird baserunning that inning. That play with Cano and Jorge at third base was hysterical.

Jorge Posada and Robinson Cano run into trouble, but third base ump Tim McClelland still botches call right in front of him.

I dont’e even know…it was weird.

The Yanks scored 5 more times before winning. I went to bed before it ended (blasphemy, I know) but I was tired. I shall not do that anymore. What I should do is take a nap when I get home, and then watch the whole game. I won’t miss anyore of my Yankees.

The heroes for the victory are CC Sabathia, for just doing his thing out there on the mound, Alex Rodriguez for another postseason homer, and Melky, just because I love him ♥. My boys are off tonight, I guess I now have no excuse to not study calculus….darn. Wish me luck with that….I don’t really know what I’m doing….let’s see….the slope of the tangent line is the general derivative….formula is: lim h-0 of f (x+h) – f (x) / h……then when you find the derivative, you find the equation of the tangent line by using the point-slope formula….and no one cares about this so I will just shut up and go study….

GO YANKEES!

You just made me so glad my days of calculus are well behind me! Good luck with that.:) How great was CC last night? I kept wondering if he’d get tired, but he only got better as the game went on. A-Rod was amazing and Melky finally got his offense going, and the night was magical.

First of all, I completely understand now that you mentioned it. It was an ugly game for the Angels because CC Sabathia was just too darn good. It was nice to see Chad Guadin just because he played for the Padres. He was just terrible for us. You guys played great last night. No kiddin’. I don’t even want to touch calculus for now :)

I’m sorry Virginia, but no one should make you feel as though you should apologize for being true to your emotions. Defend your writing. I always do. I’ve bad-mouthed teams on my blog and when people complain, I tell them tough cookies. I’m a Yankees fan, I write primarily for *other* Yankees fans, and if you can’t handle that I’m going to talk a little trash about your team, that’s not my problem. That’s yours. I’ve been blogging here for 4 seasons now [06, 07, 08, and 09] and it’s happened more times than I care to count.

No offense, Hyunyoung……but you went too far in my book. I’m defending what she wrote on the principle of the thing. It’s one thing to say you didn’t like it because you’re a fan of the other team, it’s another entirely to expect her to apologize for it when she said nothing that warranted an apology. I would never allow someone to do that to me.

the best team did win? The Yankees are anything but a team. they are a group of individuals bought out to wear the same uniform and win games. The series was handed to the Yankees. congratulations the Yankees have the biggest wallet in the league! woohoo.
