So it was obviously incredible to watch the Yankees sweep the Red Sox while in Cape Cod. We go up to the Cape every August, but it's been years since the Yanks played Boston during our trip, and it was just a fantastic feeling walking around the beaches and stores and everywhere in between decked out in our Yankee garb. You could literally feel the disdain on peoples' faces.
Also nice to see them take another 2 of 3 from the Jays, backed by yet another walk-off win? Ridiculous. I know we've been saying it a lot during the last month, given how well they've played, but this is clearly the best Yankee team in quite some time, possibly the best of this decade, and you really have to like their chances to do some serious damage this year.
No deficit feels too big anymore. If they're down by 2 or 3 runs even late in the game, I've come to expect them to pull out a win now. This team feels SO much different than the 2008 squad. I know the playoffs are a crapshoot, but if they keep playing baseball like this, I think we're going to be a pretty damn happy fanbase in October.
