Good morning all.  What a good feeling it is that the Yankees came out with the bats alive last night and took the division and the best record in the American League.   The Yankees will play October 7th (Sunday) against Baltimore or Texas winner.   That game is Friday night at 8:30PM EST.

Enjoy the day now for some links…

Ian O’Connor of ESPN mentions that these are not Jeter nor A-Rod’s Yankees anymore.   How the Yankees will do in the playoffs rest on the shoulders of Robinson Cano.

Girardi mentioned last night that Jeter’s season exceeded expectation writes Andrew Marchand.

Steven Miller of mlb.com writes that winning the division is a well rested C.C. Sabathia.

  1. SEE, THE YANKEES HAVE JETER TO THANK FOR WINNING THE DIVISION,…..

    • WWWWWWHAT!????
      Please Jim, let’s just have a good day after the team won the Div. Heck, even Brett had a hit and scored a run.
      Give credite where credits due shall we? Like maybe the whole team, working hard to pick each other up at times.

    • You’re right , Jim, Flip Bond,’s article was right on Jeter was jYankee MVP. Cano is their best player but he had long periods of inconsistency and did not hit well with RISP. Jeter was amazing throughout thebyear.

  2. A couple of quick things……………firstly, good morning to all our metropolitan bloggers, and congratulations! All that wild Joe Girardi venting, went for naught. As it should have. As for poster Doug, I can not find anything with his politics that I disagree with. Good man. Let me buy the first beer. Lets all have a great day, and enjoy.

    • patrick, the biggest political news of the day yesterday was Teddy winning the race at the Washington game. Yanks need to speak softly and carry a big stick, I’m predicting the Yanks- Nats series.

  3. lets all have a bad day and not enjoy it,……. how about that?

  4. its a very sad day though

  5. how you like them souir apples?

  6. Just in case everyone forgot, the Yanks will win the series this year because Kentucky won the NCAA Tournament! I think it has happened five or six times.

  7. Well, it’s official. Red Sox fired Bobby Valentine. Why they hired him in the first place, who knows.
