Yankees vs. Angels…this should be interesting.
First, a few words about the Red Sox/Angels ALDS. I thought that the
Angels would win the series…but I certainly didn’t expect the Angels
to sweep that series. I can’t stand Jonathan Papelbon, so I must admit
that I was not sorry to hear that he blew the save, and the game, and
the series. If the Red Sox destiny was to go home after the ALDS, then
IMO that blown save couldn’t have happened to a more deserving
It will be interesting to see how Bobby Abreu performs against his former team. It will also be interesting to see if Alex Rodriguez can continue to play well, and make Yankee fans forget his performances in the postseason from previous years. And the Yankees have to hope that CC Sabathia can perform better against the Angels in this series than he did during the season, when he lost his two starts and had a 6.08 ERA.
The Yankees certainly have plenty of motivation to defeat the Angels. Not only are they trying to make up for the fact that they failed to make the postseason last year, but the Angels sent the Yankees home early in 2002 and 2005 by defeating them in the ALDS. The boys from the Bronx are out for revenge!
I’d like to say that the Yankees will breeze through the ALCS…I believe the Yankees will win, but I think it will take 7 games to do so.
