My Yankees Unsung Hero

Been nearly a decade, which for us Yankee fans seems like an eternity. And this is why other baseball and sports fans feel such warmth toward us.

Still, I relish this moment, particularly since many of the pundits who predicted aYankee win began wavering when the Phillies won Game 5.

One player had a major role in influencing several of the post season games and last night’s World Series game: Damaso Marte.  He had a haoorible season and was even injured during much of the regular season.

Joe Girardi deserves great credit for recognizing that this was a new season. Several newspaper columnists and television broadcasters even took issue with him using Marte and what did the player do, he retired all ten batters he faced in the post season.
