NYY owner George Steinbrenner passes away

God Bless. 80 years old, what a life he led! Man how we loved to hate George in NYC back in the day! (70s!) But of course he rebuilt the team~ oh boy did he! No estate tax since the Critters are so incompetent BTW. God Bless the family and the team.

I have always been a huge Mr October fan so when Steinbrenner would fire Billy and Reggie would get upset so would I, lol.,..

Yankees win 4-3!! ALCS Game 2 NYY v Anaheim Angels…

Back to Newsday Blog I was too excited to type:

THIRTEENTH INNING: YANKEES WIN, 4-3.

Bottom: To steal a phrase from the late great Bob Murphy, the Yankees “win the damn thing.”

Of course it wasn’t your typical walkoff play, because this game was completely atypical in every which way.

With runners on first and second and one out, Melky Cabrera hit a grounder to the left of second baseman Maicer Izturis. The Angels second baseman fielded it cleanly, yet instead of simply getting the sure out at first base he spun and threw to second.

Of course the throw was wild and Jerry Hairston – who led off the inning with a single – scored easily.

Hairston was awarded the pie in the face from Burnett after the game, and it was a neat pie. Hairston saw Burnett coming, and Burnett stopped right when he got to Hairston. For a second there was nothing, but just when Hairston’s defenses were down Burnett pied him in the face.

So the Yankees fly to Anaheim tonight two wins away from their first World Series berth since 2003.
