Poll: Will Yankees Be in the World Series?

Bronx Bombers win AL East.

The New York Yankees won the American League East Championship Wednesday night, putting them on the road to the World Series.

The Yankees took their 12th American League East title in 16 years as Jorge Posada slapped a pinch-hit two-run single to right. The 8th inning  hit brought a 4-2 victory in the late game of a doubleheader sweep of Tampa Bay in the Bronx.

This comes from a Yankee fan who attended his first game in 1960, saw Mantle and Maris hit many of their famous blasts in 1961, and was in the Stadium for Chris Chambliss' pennant-winning homerun in 1976, Reggie's 3 dingers against the Dodgers in 1977, game 1 vs. the Mets in 2000, and hundreds of other memorable games in all three versions of the Stadium. I, too, would feel a lot better about the Yankees if they had a more reliable # 2 starter for a short series. I do think they can make it to the World Series, but I think the Phillie juggernaut -- just look at that pitching staff -- will prove too powerful.

This is the time of year when someone has to step up and fill in for a less productive AJ. Burnett. The Yankee bats will come through they are the most patient in baseball If they can get into your bullpen then they have a good chance. I live and die with my Yanks. But even if they fail I know deep inside Ive had more than my fair share of thrills. If only my Jets and Rangers were that good/lucky.
