ALCS Game 6: Yankees vs. Angels October 25, 2009

Posted by DG in MLB, Yankees.

Today the New York Yankees will send Andy Pettitte to the mound to pitch Game 6 in ALCS.

I really think the Yankees will win tonight against the Angels. But let’s face it, Joba and Hughes have to step up when called upon. If Andy is able to pitch in to the eighth inning or even up to the seventh inning, those two guys will have to hold the Angels down (if the Yankees have the lead) so that they can turn it over to Mariano Rivera.

Another factor that has to come into play is the Swisher factor. Swisher hasn’t had too much success in the playoffs but he has to come through with runners in scoring position. I really think Swisher is trying to hard right now. I would like to see Swisher relax a little bit more and just go out and play baseball because you can tell he is thinking too much at the plate.

One more point I would like to bring up before tonight’s game is that all of this talk about the 2004 playoffs is just nonsense. This is a totally different team and different manager.

I really hope the Yankees fans that are going to tonight’s game will really make it difficult for the Angels. Make them feel comfortable, making them feel scared, make them feel like they can’t wait to get the hell out of there.

Let’s Go New York Yankees!

The only game that I went to all year, got tickets at the last moment after the rainout. Pure Magic
