Magic number Time
Yes it is time again for magic numbers as the baseball season starts to put to playoff mode.
Even though the Yanks lost tonight their number is 17.
The Mets are down to 11 while Oakland and the Cards are at 19.

Bronx Bombers Rule !!!
I have not had this much fun following a Yankee-Red Sox Series since 1978.
I remember that series in 1978
It was 28 years ago that the Yankees came to Fenway in September with a four-game deficit and left tied for the division lead -- a series remembered in baseball as the "Boston Massacre." New York, which had trailed by as many as 14 games, won the AL East in a one-game playoff settled when Bucky Dent's popup settled into the net above the Green Monster.
My best friend who for some unknown reason is a Sox fan calling me during that 163rd game and all he could say in tones of pure astonishment was "Bucky Dent"
Now all they have to do is not roll over dead during the next 5 weeks and the penant is in the bag. With any luck that will lead to a subway series. I think though this might be the Mets year but I will never count the Yanks out.

the Yankess season is over.
A-Rod had a good season but in the post season he has been a big BUST.

Now it gets interesting
Yankees up 3 games to 2
I prefer sweeps myself but if looks like I will get my wish to maybe get series seats this year. My boss wants the Astros to get there but isn't so sure he wants to play the Yankees. I am not so sure I want the Astros to get there as their strong suit is pitching which is where I think the Yankees are weak and in a short series very important.

The Astros finally nailed the Braves for the first time in their history and moved one step closer to the final confrontation with the Yankees in the World Series.

Speaking of Celebrating
The Yankees are celebrating but probably not too much since the upcoming series with Boston promises to be one of the classics.
It was another Yankee come from behind victory with them tying the game with four runs, including Sierra's three run shot, in the eighth. Then on to the 11th where A-rod hit a double, stole third and scored on a wild pitch.
Meanwhile the hometown Astros hope to celebrate today by beating the Braves. Former Yankee Ace (yeah I know he pitched for someother teams) Roger Clemens (who has lied about his age and is really forty nine) will take the mound on three days rest to try and bring Houston its first ever playoff series win. With any other pitcher I would be worried about three days rest but the Rocket is not just any other pitcher. I am still worried just not as much.

Yankees - 7
In other news:
Even my boss asked me yesterday who I would root for if the Yankees and Astros faced out in the World Series. I sort of wimped out but the memories of 40 years as a Yankee fan are too great, not to mention all the jackets and hats I have in the closet.
At this point it might be easier for the Astros to get there than the Yanks.They are the hottest team around and all the breaks are going their way.

And So it starts
Twins - 2
Well that could have went better.

First Step to Title
The Yankees have once again won their division.
Update: The homer that Williams hit to win the game broke the team record for homers set in 1961. If you don't remember 1961 and were not at any of those games, like I was, I will tell you that is was an exceptional season with Maris and Mantle battling to beat Ruth's 60 HR record. No doubt about it this team's offense is awesome and can come from any position but I still wish they had a Whitey Ford.

I know things are going well when I hear someone on TV talk about Boston's position in the race for the wild card.
