“Momentum? Momentum is the next day’s starting pitcher.“
– Earl Weaver
The Yankees have been playing out the string for a week now, and much of the talk you read floating around the blogosphere and you hear around talk radio is about momentum. Who’s hot going into the playoffs? Who’s limping into the postseason? [...]
Here are the lineups, courtesy of PA (LoHud):
Pitching: LHP Andy Pettitte (13-7, 4.15).
RED SOX (91-63)
From Roger Rubin:
The victory, combined with Texas’ loss to Oakland, reduces Boston’s magic number at 3 to clinch the wild card and their sixth playoff trip in seven years.
And don’t you think the Sox wouldn’t like to sew it up in their archrivals’ new home.

Jayson Stark (ESPN) tried his hand at ranking postseason rotations and placed the Yankees at number 4 on his list. The (1) Red Sox, (2) Cardinals, and (3) Phillies are the three teams that sit above the Yankees in Stark’s piece. Here’s what he had to say about the New York rotation.

From George King III (NY Post):
Joba Chamberlain isn’t wild about the innings limit on his right arm and how it has led to long stretches of inactivity in the second half. But he admits his arm is in very good shape.
From George King III (NY Post):
After Burnett was spanked for nine runs and nine hits in five innings Saturday in a 14-1 loss, Posada said the pair weren’t on the same page.
