There’s no debate here. Congratulations to the Yankees on another AL East crown. Onward and upward.

Special ups to Joe Torre. I am beyond impressed by him. Does he have special powers?
You don’t know the half ot it. None of us can. To do what he has done, granted with talented players, in NY working for someone like Steinbrenner, none of us knows what its like. Steinbrenner reacts like a fan to every win or loss. They win today, everythings right with the world. They lose, half the team should be traded. I give the Boss his due for wanting to win so badly, and for spending tens of millions of dollars which he could put in his pocket, but the man is just unbalanced. Thanks to Joe he has pretty much been kept away from the players, and Joe’s calm, cool demeanor has kept the Yankees on the winning path these many years. The man is a saint. No really a SAINT, how do I reach the Pope to get this done?
It was particularly fun to see Bernie win it with a walk-off ding. The man loves his autumn baseball. Let’s hope it’s a sign of things to come.
It was pretty cool that the Yanks got their 100th victory, broke their 240 HR mark, and became AL East Champs all on a walk-off homerun by Bernie, the most senior Yankee.
I was living in New York when Torre replaced Showalter, and like a lot of people, I thought it seemed like a pretty dumb move — and one that I was happy about, as a Sox fan. It seems like ancient history now, but remember how relatively unimpressive Torre had been in his previous managerial stints? I don’t know if it was smarts or sheer dumb luck, but you’ve got to hand it to Steinbrenner. It’s the best acquisition he ever made.
To both YF and SF now the real wars start
