We Win!

After the hectic stretch run this probably wasn't too pressure filled for the young men. They were so far behind that every game, every inning, every at bat was crucial. Last year their run culminated in a one game playoff loss to the White Sox. Two #$&*% years in a row! But then again they have won the division five out of the last eight years. Of course the big problem facing them now is the series tomorrow (today, rather). They are snake-bit against the Yankees, even more so than most. In their early series this year they lost three straight hard fought, walk-off games to the lads from the Bronx. That was tough. Their steel has been forged in hell.
