    As well as Lee pitched, it's always hard to say that if you change one set of events in a game, that others would have followed the same way.

    The big early lead did allow Lee to use more of the plate, just worrying about throwing strikes.

    As for today...I love Weaver's toughness and the Angels did hit Pettite hard back in July.

    But that, of course, was July, and Pettite's one of the best money pitchers ever in the playoffs.

    And I want to say, again, that I think these Yankees are a great team. They have no discernable weaknesses. The way they roll through the lineup..and the bridge they have to get to the best reliever in the history of the game...and as for payroll, they've played the game within the rules.

    I think the rules need changing (salary cap) but I think the temperature you-know-where will approach that of Yankee Stadium the other night when the Players Union says yes to that.

    Doesn't mean I like them or want them to win. But I do respect them, and I respect their fans that treat me with respect. Which includes everyone here. At Angel Stadium, Red Sox fans have passed Yankee fans on the boorish meter in recent years in my view. And again Arte's Angels are hardly the Sisters of the Poor these days.

    And as painful as the outcome was, game 2 was 5 hours and 10 minutes of some of the best playoff baseball you'll ever want to see. Better drama than most everything thing else the FOX network has in its arsenal.

    Not looking too good for the Halo's today. I think this Yankees team is going to make ANYBODY look not too good.

    Not giving up hope.

    Not until somebody records the 27th out of their fourth win of the series.

    Well, Vlad finally came through in the playoffs. Hopefully this signals a wake-up for the Angels bats.

    What a huge HR not only for the team itself, but for Guerrero himself.

    Tie game going into the 7th.

    Was that an actual Vlad sighting? I thought the infamous Vladinator hibernated starting in October.

    Wow. Another amazing game with extra inning drama. No way the World Series can live up to the ALCS.
    I am ashamed of what I've done for a Klondike Bar.

    Great game. Glad the Angels finally got on the board in the win column and got their bats woken up a bit. Now let's take it to C.C. tomorrow.

    hmmmm.....the home field advantage may help, but I'm hoping not.

    That makes two clutch hits in five years of post-season play. Nice going, Vladdy, nonetheless.

    Agreed. This is part of what I meant when I said that this is the true World Series.

    That makes two classics in a row...I still say this baby is going six or seven games. Yankee fans, gracious in defeat.

    When they gave back the lead, like the other night, I said oh no. When they left the bases loaded in the 10th, I said, oh no. After Jeff Mathis, with his 215 average, came up with another extra-base hit I said, oh boy!

    I believe Polar Bear and I are speaking from a fan's perspective, and not that of a player.

    Yes, the reward of winning the World Series is greater.

    But the point here, again, is that the best two of the four teams remaining, are playing in this series. The American League is a stronger league right now. There are more good teams in the American League.

    And chances are slim IMHO that you will see baseball games that are as close, and dramatic, and exciting, in the next round.

    An unlikely hero too. An inning earlier, Hunter and Guerrero couldn't get the big hit. Jeff Mathis out of all people cranks the GW hit. Congrats to Jeff, congrats to the Angels on the win!

    Game 4 tomarrow!

    I'm pretty sure those will go to either the Yankees or the Angels......so we're pretty much watching the best games now.
