ALDS MVP:
Placido Polanco

Both Sean Casey and Carlos Guillen we deserving, but I think Polanco was the catalyst. What Craig Monroe lacked at the plate, he made up in defense, especially today.

Watching that celebration today was absolutely awesome. I will be keeping that game and postgame on my DVR for some time. Next up are the Oakland A’s. It’s a rematch of the 1972 LCS that Oakland won in five. Tuesday night’s game features Barry Zito against Nate Robertson.

O-M-G!!!

Words cannot begin to describe how good I am feeling right now. Coming into the series, I was terrified of the big, bad Yankees. After game one, I gained a lot of confidence in the team and felt that with a game two win, they were very much part of this series. Last night’s magical performance by Kenny Rogers shifted a series win from possible to probable. Having Jeremy Bonderman on the mound against a shmuck like Jaret Wright gave me tons of confidence that the team could avoid a trip back to New York. I have plenty to say, but right now, I’m just going to soak it in and watch the Mets game with my girlfriend.

Here are some pictures from the game:

It goes without saying that today’s game is absolutely huge. I really don’t want to go back to New York. Texas-OU and Michigan-Michigan State can wait, because I won’t miss a minute of this game.
