Didn’t it sting just a little watching the Yankees celebrate?
“I don’t care,’’ Kevin Youkilis said. “I want to get into the playoffs. Once we get there, it’s a whole other game.’’
Watching a team celebrate a division win in front of you can't be fun, but we fans should realize that these players are singularly focused. They probably want to win everything, but in the end, if they can't do that, they really just want to win one thing. And players like Youk know this full well, they know what can be done even when you don't win everything.
We all might be a little healthier as fans, mentally, if we recognize that.
