After these last two games I’m not sure I could handle a hypothetical Yankees-Rays American League Championship Series. The Yankees beat the Rays 8-7 in 10 innings in a game that felt like one of those classic Emotionally Decimating Mid-Aughts Yankees vs. Red Sox seesaw contests at Fenway Park.

Um, yeah. About that game last night…
First, I feel bad for CC Sabathia. He pitched incredibly. I didn’t see most of the game because I was at class but what I did see from him was great. He pitched the way he always does and deserved better than a no decision. To be [...]
Mike recently wrote a persuasive article explaining why Derek Jeter shouldn’t serve as the Yankees’ leadoff hitter anymore. As to be expected, not everyone shared Yankeeist’s sentiments about Jeter’s ideal spot in the lineup. Some of the more amusing rebuttals included:
