There Go The Yankees!

Remember when A-Rod got his first hit of the ALDS in Game Three? That was enough for Caray to shriek hopefully, "Here come the Yankees!" Sorry, Chip, but "There go the Yankees!" And you and everybody else in the media will just have to deal with it. Meanwhile, almost everyone here in Northeast Ohio will just sit back and revel in it.

Remember when they used to make comedies based on the silly idea that the Tribe would beat the Yankees in a playoff series? Well take a look at who's laughing now. The Indians not only knocked the Evil Empire out of the playoffs in convincing fashion, but also appear to have driven a stake through the heart of what the Yankees "amen corner" in the national media still call the "Yankee Dynasty."

How a team that hasn't won a World Series since 2000 qualifies as a "dynasty" is beyond me, but I'll let others worry about that. I've got my mind on the ALCS.
