Meant to be…

Lou Gehrig.jpgRecords 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. 

capt_alcs13410210245_alcs_yankees_alx.jpgOne 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.

In the midst of the domination by CC, the Yankees plowed through the Angels uncontested and pushed their way to 3-1 series lead.

capt_alcs14610210359_alcs_yankees_angels_baseball_alcs146.jpgIt’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.

    Thank You Jane. It’s the nature of the game and the Dodgers were simply no match for the Phillies, nor would they be much of a match for the Yankees. It will be a very good WS though!
