Also take a good look at the teams Jimenez was pitching against during that late season surge.

You're right about the catcher's interference, but he can come up to receive the ball

Except they had replay for that and didn't overturn the call.

Nick Swisher at the plate over Ichiro, but I think it's getting overlooked that the Yankee OF defense is greatly improved this year and having an impact on their "surprising" success.

It's the postseason. The great moments are made by the teams that play. If it ended up being The Cards and Yankees (the two teams with the most series wins) intriguing story lines will evolve. I think the A's and Nats making the playoff were great. As someone with no rooting stake, I think what occurred with the Cards and Nats was great and sad. That's the postseason. That is what makes it exciting. And by the way, there's nothing wrong with seeing the teams that prove on the field that they belong in the next round playing one another.

I believe we just found out "seabass77" is John Sterling's name on this site

Colin I think you are missing the point of this trade. I think the Yankees view him as a starting outfielder and I think it would be a big surprise if he didn't play most everyday.

There is an audio version of "Glory of Their Times" available that is the original interviews. Really great!

The real crime is being a Yankee fan and having to listen to Michael Kay for 150 games a year.

Yaz' was the best, but I always got a kick out of seeing Dan Ford and Brian Downing hitting back to back for the Angels with their extreme open and closed stances.

There's an audio version of the book that has the actual players on it. Just awesome!

What if was a (near) unique piece of equipment that could help make another company a lot of money?

Jeter needed the Yankees for marketing purposes just as much as they needed him. There was no easy replacement for him, but where was he going. Nobody else would have given him the term, the money, signed him to start at SS, and given him the chance to win a championship. They did the right thing in signing him, but the length of the deal and the price wasn't necessary. He played the off season game better. And I am a sentimental Jeter fan.

One of the best moments of the whole series was Pedro's performance in game 2. He's not the best pitcher of the last 20 years, Maddux is, but to watch a guy who once had that kind of talent go out there and do what he did on smarts, guts & shoe string was one of those things that makes baseball so great. That's from a Yankee fan.
