I am so tired of the "experts" telling me that the Yankees can not overtake Boston that I had to post this on the night that my Yanks took over first place in the AL East.
Let's see what happens from here on out, it is baseball, for the love of God.
While I know that either the Yanks or the Red Sox will grab the Widcard, and while in my heart I know that Boston has a more talented team on paper, I haven't seen the Yankees playing such crisp baseball in YEARS.
The kids are producing and aren't worried about being involved in some cockamamie Roy Halladay trade, and Girardi may have finally have gotten his point across about Mega-Stars playing Small-Ball. I haven't seen the Yanks manufacture runs the way they are now since Scott Brosius was manning the hot corner.
It's a great feeling, however how fleeting, to know that for today - these overpaid Underachievers have come together as a New York Yankees TEAM and have once again become a bunch of guys one can root for... even if we are stuck with A-Rod until he's 61.
Let's go Yankees.
