Start Spreading The News



Update 12:53: For tonight, I'm just a fan. Matt will be here in a second with his take. There will be plenty of time to recap tomorrow. Just some quick thoughts:
  • Congrats to Hideki Matsui. With the three separate 2 RBI hits he had tonight - a homer, single and a double - tied the record for most RBIs in a World Series game previously in possession of Bobby Richardson (Game 3 in 1960) and supplanted his legacy with an incredible effort in the biggest game of his MLB career.
  • How appropriate that Mariano Rivera (with the greatest non-save of his career), Derek Jeter (with three hits and two runs scored) and Andy Pettitte (benefactor of the official decision) all played major roles in the clinching victory.

  • How about Damaso Marte, who threw six pitches and got two strikeouts against the Phillies' 3 & 4 hittters?

  • Sorry to Mike Mussina who found the worst possible 8 years to be a Yankee. (h/t Mike)

  • And last but not certainly least, good for A-Rod. He carried the Yanks to the World Series and made his hits count when they got there.
Thanks a lot for reading this season. Feel free to commiserate in the comments.

  2. In hindsight, maybe it wasn't so bad that they lost Game 5.

  12. Thanks for the kind words, guys. Couldn't have asked for a better ending.

    Soak it in... imbibe, embrace, luxuriate, relish, partake.

    Holy shit. We made it. No need to fret, sweat, worry, brood, distress, despair, agonize, be nervous or vex.

    This is it. The pinnacle, the peak, the apex, the top, the ultimate, the endgame, the acme, the climax, the summit, the zenith.

    It's time to expunge, emit, eject, expel, expire and exhale.

  18. I do love that Game 6 began with a homegrown Yankee, and ended with a homegrown Yankee. I wish all MLB players were as gracious as Hideki Matsui and Mark Teixeira too. I am amazed at how locked-in Matsui was tonight too. He knew exactly what was coming and when. I would hate to see him in another uniform and I hope the Yankees keep him around. Damon has grown on me this year, though if the choice to keep one over the other comes, I take Matsui (and I'm probably a minority). For now, a fitted end to a terrific season. Hats off to Philadelphia too. The best in the NL went as far as their team was built to go. They simply were outplayed.
