Yep...I think its the first time in my life I ever rooted for the Yankees to win Josh. Actually, the win was given to them. But either way, as long as we get another whack at them its OK with me. I hope they can restrain themselves and behave.

We got you now Yanks, and we are going to whip your butts this time. Grin

Hi George:

Given to them? I dunno. A lot of teams would have seen themselves down 4 runs in the 8th inning, and knowing the other team's closer was coming in, just emotionally packed it in and given up. The Yanks play hard until that last out has been recorded.

I saw part of Curt Schilling's press conference today. I thought he was very gracious. At one point he said that there's a reason you just can't picture guys like Jeter, Bernie, Posada or Rivera in any other uniform. They bring something to this team that very few teams are ever lucky enough to have.

Although we'll see Schilling pitch twice (games 1 and 5), I think this series will go down to the wire just like last year's. I'm looking forward to the games but not to the lack of sleep.

if I remember right Jeter scored the tie breaking run on a wild pitch. In the end they won with that wild pitch as well as some good plays after. My memory is'nt too good, but I think thats what I saw.

Anyway, its going to be an exciting week coming up.

Hi George:

I figured that's what you were referring to. My point (perhaps not worded very well) was that the game wouldn't have gone into extra innings in the first place if the Yanks hadn't come back from a 5-1 deficit to tie it in the 8th. A lot of other teams would have just folded. And I'm impressed that you saw it! I fell asleep after the 10th inning!

Talk about faulty memories!

That was an afternoon game, LOL. I had it confused with the other game that went extra innings. We taped the clinching game and watched it that evening, but the tape ran out in the bottom of the 8th, so we had to go to the computer to find out how it ended.

My hubby had a hankering for ice cream last night and the Yanks were down 5-1. He didn't want to miss the game, but our chances looked pretty bleak at that point. So I said let's go, when we get back the Yankees will have tied it up. My hubby couldn't believe it when we got back and he looked at the TV -- score was 5-5 Grin

I thought Jave did pretty well last night despite the mistakes. The home plate ump was pretty inconsistent and that got the better of him on a few pitch counts.

However, things aren't so rosy for the Cards series, even if we won the season series against tem. Who our starting pitchers will be is a real problem, as our two aces both pitched on three days rest Sunday and last night, and so aren't available until the weekend. Our #3 pitcher is that rookie from Galveston -- the question is whether to start him tomorrow on three days rest, or drop down to the rarely effective #4 for game 1 and wait with the #3 until Friday. That's what I'd do -- but I'm not the manager... As I may have mentioned previously, we lost two good starters during the season, one reason for that long losing stretch in mid-season.

If the Astros do nothing else, they've performed a great public service by eliminating the Braves. The Cards are on fire this year. If they win the NLCS, I predict a 7-game world series no matter which team wins the ALCS.

The hubby and I are split on the Astros ...
by Evie / October 12, 2004 1:25 AM PDT

... and what that would mean if the Yanks met them in the World Series. It would be a very difficult thing to root against Andy Pettitte who was one of my favorite Yankees. Less so, but still some ambivalence for Roger who definitely grew on me over the years.

Then in some twisted way....

...you may be glad to know that Pettitte is on the DL and won't be pitching until sometime next season. I know what you mean though; he's one of my favorites too, a really good, decent man as well as a great clutch pitcher. Clemens pitching against the Yankees would feel a bit strange, even though he did it for 13 years in a Boston uniform.

Wish you luck with an Astros win Dave. Would love to see them match up with the Red Sox. Happy
