What else is there to say after a series like that? The Yankees absolutely dominated their arch-rivals and played like World Champions. It wasn't always easy ( games 4 & 5), but every day the Bombers found a way to win.
Game 1: Yankees- 12, Red Sox- 4
Chien Ming Wang had his second consecutive, solid outing ( 6IP, 3ER) against the Red Sox while Boston's Johnson was humiliated by Yankee sluggers. Johnny Damon beat the tar out of his old team ( leadoff triple, 2-run single, and 2-run HR). Abreu, Jeter, and Rodriguez also had multiple hits.
Game 2: Yankees- 14, Red Sox- 11
 The one we had no business winning. Sidney Ponson stunk ( what a surprise) in his third start as a Yankee. But the Boston bullpen couldn't hold a 4-run lead going into the seventh inning. Derek Jeter's two out, two strike, bases-loaded double was the key hit in this game. After all was said and done, the Yanks had won the longest nine-inning game in the history of MLB. Oh, and Sidney Ponson was designated for assignment afterwards.
Game 3: Yankees- 13, Red Sox- 5
I'm so glad the Sox gave Beckett ( 5.2IP, 7H, 9ER, 9BB)  that three-year extension.
Game 4: Yankees- 8, Red Sox- 5 ( 10 innings)
This was probably the best ( as in, most exciting) game of the 5-game series. Mussina ( who left the ballgame in the 4th due to an injury) and Schilling ( who pitched well enough to win) were pretty much non-factors in this game. Thanks to the heroics of Derek Jeter ( RBI single of Papelbon), the Yanks erased a 2-run deficit to win the game in the 10th. Giambi hit two homers- one, a monstrous blast off of Schilling and the other, a line drive to win the ballgame in the 10th. Mariano Rivera shut out the Sox through two innings ( no thanks to New York's shining defense).
Game 5: Yankees- 2, Red Sox- 1
I told you Lidle was worth something to this team! Six innings, no runs.... the best starting pitching performance of the series.
So.... what do we take out of this series? A 6.5 game lead in the AL East division, the biggest New York lead of the year.
The Yanks proved that they are a great team, Derek Jeter proved that he is the AL MVP, and guys like Lidle, Myers, and Farnsworth proved their worth. With spirits uplifted, the Yanks go to Seattle.
( I apologize over the lack of updates, by my computer crashed last week so... I just got it fixed)
