What they're saying about the Yankees' 27th Championship

Nov 5, 2009, 9:25 AM EDT

Let’s take a trip around the blogosphere:

Baseball Prospectus: “Maybe Joe Girardi does overmanage. Maybe Alex Rodriguez really is a choker Centaur. Maybe the new Stadium doesn’t have ghosts. What they all have now is a new championship banner and a set of rings on the way. Whether this was for George (as Selig said) or for their fans, #27 was memorable.”

IIATMS: “My oldest son was born Opening Day of 2000 and my little one was born in the Spring of 2003. They’re at the prime age to remember this title and this team.  Guys like Jeter and Mo and Teix and CC will be like my Reggie and Gator and Goose and Thurman and like my Dad’s Mickey and Whitey and Hank and Billy.  It’s a generational thing.”

Fack Youk: “I’m not a superstitious man, but I do believe that sometimes life taps you on the shoulder as it tries to get your attention . . . the same optimism I’ve felt the past two days knowing my favorite and most-trusted starting pitcher from my years as a fan was taking the mound tonight, turned to a cool confidence. Stupid, I know. The very idea of which is something I’ll surely scoff at in the years to come. But at that moment, short of the Almighty Himself offering me a glimpse to the future, I don’t think there’s anything that could have assured me of the future more than that.”

River Avenue Blues: “My father said many times that A-Rod would never win a title with the Yankees. At 4:11 EST on the morning of the Yankees’ 27th championship, I’d like to rub it in.”

The 700 Level: “The Phillies lost the World Series and it completely and totally sucks. Perhaps the only thing you can really hold against this team — a team that has taken us on such a magical run over the past two years — is the way they went out tonight.”

Crashburn Alley: “The Phillies have no reason to hang their heads, as they put together the most impressive two-year run in the franchise’s long history, and they are still primed for another run next year.”

Sliding Into Home: “First off, to all you Yankee haters out there, if the title of this post ["Back Where We Belong"] bothers you, check out this quote from The Captain: ‘It’s good to be back, this is right where it belongs.'”

    Thanks for the link/quote, CC. A wonderful season comes to a close.
    Great job by everyone at CTB.

    And what did I think of the Borg’s 27th championship, you ask?
    Oh. You didn’t ask?
    Pardon the misunderstanding, then. But as long as you didn’t ask, it was certainly more interesting than a Lars Von Trier film. I know that isn’t saying much, but one can only be thankful that he never worked for Toho Productions, or Hideki Matsui would have had to find a more interesting name than Godzilla.
