Okay, I'm ready for it. In fact, I'm looking forward to it. Last month, on September 7th to be exact, I posted a near-eulogy for the New York Yankees. With the way they were playing I didn't see how they were going to get one of the Wild Cards, let alone win the AL East. I closed out the piece by saying the following:
"I would give almost ANYTHING to be wrong about all of this. I will gladly eat crow if the Yankees win the division."
Well, go ahead and dish it up. It feels SO good to be wrong. The Yankees not only survived in September, they flourished. Right now this team looks as if it could go all the way. But hey, I don't want to get ahead of myself. I am well aware that anything can happen in the playoffs, especially in a 5 game series.
As for the Death Game, that'll be between the Orioles and Rangers. The Rangers! You're a liar if you say you saw that one coming!
So, congratulations to the 2012 New York Yankees. Best wishes for a very successful postseason run.
