Records are funny things. They can stand for what seems to be an eternity, but the moment they are tied or eclipsed it’s as though they are awakened.
One day after seeing Ryan Howard tie Lou Gehrig’s incredible statistic of knocking in an RBI in 8 consecutive Post Season games… Alex Rodriguez decided to join the party.
Now, don’t get me wrong. . It’s not as though I didn’t see and recognize the awesome game that Melky Cabrera put together. He was awesome knocking in 4 RBIs on the day. He just didn’t control the game in the manner that A-Rod did.
In the midst of the domination by CC, the Yankees plowed through the Angels uncontested and pushed their way to 3-1 series lead.
It’s looking more and more like the two best teams in baseball are the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Yankees. If baseball’s World Series is meant to showcase the two best teams, then it looks like we are going to get what is meant to be.
Congratulations to Alex Rodriguez – Yesterday’s Hitter!
