Game Five of the World Series was what we’ve been waiting for and, as a result, there’s more baseball to be played.
As Dave Sheinin wrote in this morning’s Washington Post, “The Yankees still hold a 3-2 edge in the series, but it feels exponentially smaller than it did 24 hours ago.”
In his Washington Post column, Tom Boswell has a wonderful piece on how this has turned into an “Old School Series.” How right he is. And he nails the landing:
Once back in New York, Matsui and Posada will be back in the lineup. Pettitte will be set to pitch a game that might be Exhibit A on his Hall of Fame résumé someday. Utley will take aim at Reggie-Reggie-Reggie. A-Rod has a chance to be MVP and own New York for decades. Girardi won’t sleep for the next 48 hours. Martínez has a chance to reverse the “Daddy” chants for a day and bring baseball a Game 7 that would raise the hair on heads from coast to coast.
This is what we wanted. It’s almost here.
More to come…
