Five years in between their last appearance, the New York Yankees are going back to the World Series. It took them six games and they were able to do it in front of the home crowd by a score of 5-2 with one of their old horses on the hill in Andy Pettitte.
You just kind of get the feeling that this could be George Steinbrenner’s last World Series. You never know. They’re certainly acting like it in New York.
You have to be somewhat happy for the Yankees. Or at least loathe this apearance a little less then you did back when they were in it almost every year. It’s been a long road back. And how hard is it to believe that this is Alex Rodriguez’s first World Series?
Full preview to come. Enjoy the champagne the next few days Yankees fans. This is not going to be an easy World Series run.
