Hey! My name is Zachary and this is my site, Yankee Mania, where I explore the games, players, and transactions of the greatest team in baseball. Hated by some but loved by others, the New York Yankees have dominated the world of sports for over a century. This year I follow their noble quest to win yet another World Series Championship.

Did We Win?
By mvyb, 28.08.2006, 10:20

Yes! The Yankees finally pulled off a victory against these dreaded Anaheim Angels, 11-7.  Bernie smacked two monstrous homers, a double, and a single, driving in 6 RBIs ( his first 6 RBI game since 2000). The Captain also had a great game, as he went 3 for 5 ( raising the BA to .337) with two homers and a great defensive play. Even though these two players ( Jeter and Williams) have played together since '95, this was the first time they both homered in the same game. Cano also had 4 hits and 2 RBIs.

While the Yanks knocked around LA rookie, Joe Saunders, the NY rookie, Jeff Karstens, was excellent:  6IP, 6H, 3R, 3ER, 2BB, K ( only 83 pitches)
 
The Game got closer in the later innings, as Proctor, Farnsworth, and Rivera worked some rust off....
 
And, the team from Beantown lost, so the Yanks retake a 6.5 game lead over them. All in all, it wasn't a total meltdown that we feared might take place out West... the Yanks just didn't gain any ground.
 
The next six games will be the only really tough games the Yankees have to play for the rest of the regular season. Three against Detroit and then three against Minnesota.
 
Fortunately, the Tigers are struggling ( they just lost 4 out of 5), and they Yanks have played very well against them this year. The Yankees also have homefield advantage in all of these games. And, during this time, Boston will have to play 3 in Oakland, and then host the Jays ( who have killed them this year) and the ChiSox for a combined 6 games in Fenway.
 
After the Detroit-Minnesota series, the Yanks have it fairly easy from then on:
 
Boston: 4 games ( in the Bronx)
Toronto: 6 games ( swept them last time we played)
Baltimore: 7 games
Tampa Bay: 7 games
 Kansas City: 3 games
 
( 3 off days in September)
 
Not that tough....
