Yankees on the threshold

After last night’s win, the Yankees are just one win away from another World Series. I’ll be posting my regular October updates in the next few days but this particular position really required an additional few lines.
The trio of starters that we have HAD to depend on through the playoffs have seen us through. Sabathia, Burnett and Pettitte have been solid and, at best, outstanding. The bullpen has been both a great strength and a great weakness. Rivera has been everything we know that he is. Hughes such a dependable presence during the regular season has been quite dreadful.
There have been sterling performances from Jeter, Rodriguez, Damon, Posada and little wrong elsewhere.

I think it’ll go to six games but the Phillies will have to be tremendous to turn it around now.
