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

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!

Don’t hang your head AJ, after giving up 4 runs in the 1st, you held the Angels scoreless giving your team a chance to get back in the game (which they did).
The problem was that you shouldv’e never came back out to pitch after the Yankees took the lead.
Therefore IMO the manager lost the game (again).

Today someone said to me, “Yes the Yankees are in the playoffs!”.. Yes after a year where they did not come close to them, they are back in the playoffs. The person that said this to me seemed very happy when he said that. I just can’t get happy yet
To me, it’s not that exciting. I guess being a big Yankee fan, making the playoffs if just part of the season. It’s a common occurrence. Yankee fans expect to be in the playoffs every year. I know, it’s very cocky of us..
Don’t get me wrong, I’m very proud of this team to be able to bounce back after a rough season last year and a very slow start this season, I did give a small fist pump after last nights game. But witnessing the playoff runs of the 90’s, that’s what we have become accustomed to.
It’s just a playoff spot. Derek Jeter said last night in his post-game interview, the goal is to win the division. I agree with him but I will be more happy when they when it all.
