Another walk-off for the Yankees. It appears as if the new Yankee stadium has become a huge home field advantage for this team. You really never feel like they are out of it, despite the fact they are down going into the 9th inning.
If I have to say so myself, the key acquisition this off-season was the signing of Mark Teixiera. What a difference he has made this year, more specifically in protecting A-Rod which gave them a huge 3-4 punch. Then add CC and A.J on top of that and you have quite the rotation. I guess money has the potential to buy championships, of course when spent correctly and when everyone plays to their capability.
Looking beyond that, the Swisher acquisition was pretty good too. He really has brought some spunk to the team and a different attitude than when he was a white Sox. I hadn't heard too many good things about him, except how he could be quite a selfish guy when not playing full-time. I guess that wasn't really much of an issue when the Nady injury went down. It pretty much gave Swish a full-time gig at RF.
My Swisher t-shirt which was designed by the great Bald Vinny. Great shirt, and if it wasn't so big, I would probably wear it out more often.
