How about those Yankees? They not only make it into the playoffs again, they win in Anaheim last night. WIll wonders never cease?
I didn't stay up for the entire game, so I watched the replay this morning - but it was one of the more gratifying wins of the year. They finally got that winning in Anaheim monkey (or is that rally monkey?) off their back.
After watching the Yanks not make the playoffs last year, I hope fans will never take a playoff spot for granted again. So I'm very excited over this season, although I'll be much more excited when the Yankees clinch the division title, most likely against the Red Sox this weekend.
Speaking of which, it's your last chance to enter the FanSnap Yankees/Red Sox haiku contest - it ends at 5 p.m. today.
