New York Yankees capture 2009 title

I’m no Yankee fan but I give credit where credit is due.  The Yankees played like the Champions they are.  Indeed, with 40 league championships and 27 World Championships, it seems their franchise has been one long dynasty with short interruptions here and there.  

As I alluded to yesterday, the World Series MVP would probably be decided in last night’s game.  And Hideki Matsui left no room for error in judgment.  ‘Shemp’ drove in six runs in Game Six’ 7-3 clincher.   For the series, he hit .615 with three dingers and 8 rbis. 

The Yankees seem to be the team of New York and New York only.  They’re the Evil Empire.  But, let’s face it.  Without them, baseball wouldn’t be the same and probably wouldn’t be in as good as shape. 

In 2010, I’ll probably root for any team playing the Yankees as I do every year.  But for now, congrats to the to all the Yankee fans out there.  A job well done by the Bronx Bombers.
