First of all, that game belongs to the bullpen. Our pen has been absolutely lights out since Day One, and by my estimation should shake out as one of the best in the game. Bruney, Myers, Vizcaino, Rivera. 4 IP, 1 hit, 1 walk, 5 Ks, no runs.

My prediction on Igawa was off. The 7 Ks should have been 7 runs. The numbers I guessed at weren't all that off actually. He just couldn't keep all those runners from crossing home. The bloop single that scored 3 was hard luck, but the rest were Igawa sucking lemons.

Giambi and A-Rod led the charge. What can you say? I predicted an 11-5 game and we got 10-7. That's close enough. This offense will not be denied and you have to wonder how anyone is going to win a series from the Yankees if the pitching ever comes around. I'm thrilled to death that I stayed up after we fell behind 7-3. With the Yankees you always have to believe. They're always there in the end. Alex Rodriguez got his big moment, and has been the best player on the team since Opening Day. THE THIRD BASEMAN!!!!

I'm too excited to type anymore. See you tomorrow. Go Yankees!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Mike...
Love to the baby...

I don't think any other fans, in any other sport, get moments like these... of this intensity... with such a major difference between success and failure.

Imagine the articles if ARod made out. The ARod lovers, the ARod haters. How much ink will be spilled on that one swing?

I'm tellin ya... the "no more sleepovers at Jeters house" public confession has freed Alex.

Free at last. Thank God almighty.

This was more of ARod just padding his stats. Did he really need to hit a grand slam? A 2-run double would have sufficed. He’s a glory hound and can’t even come up with the clutch 2-run double. Someone should teach ARod how to hit. Only 3-4 today with a walk? He should have went 5-5. Walking is for the lazy. Real men run. ARod’s not a real man.

Anyway, you know he'll be back to being booed in like a few days. Unless he hits .400 and knocks 60 home runs out of the park, the dumb ass fan, led by the people in the media, will never give him the credit he deserves. Not clutch? Bottom of the 9th, 2 outs, bases loaded, grand slam. If there's such a thing as clutch, that's it.
