CV,
I’m curious about who you consider the third and fourth speedy player to be?

I do not agree about keeping Girardi, He has shown how poor a manager he is this year .Last year the team won not because of Girardi but in spite of him . The aquisitions of Berkect ,Burnett, and other bench riders were poor choices and contributed nothing. His opposition to using the bunt with the speed of 3/4 players is ridiculous. The yankees looked silly on bunts against them. Last and most important part of his job is team congeniality ,he only talked to or acknowledged the older veterans ,seemed to have NO camardie with [players ,stood on the top step with his arms crossed like a manaquin]. It seemed like some players were so aloof that they might not even know his name. The manager is PART of a TEAM and when that happens the players will respond.

My hat is off to the Rangers. From Nolan Ryan, to Ron Washington, to Josh Hamilton, Cliff Lee, and Elvis Andrus—–they simply outplayed the Yanks. They were the better team. Pitching, pitching, pitching——we all knew the Yanks were in trouble in September and it still was there in October. Maybe if Tex or AROD had gotten hot, but good pitching always shuts down good hitting. I first learned it in ’63 against the Dodgers and it repeated itself this last week! Congrats to the Rangers—–now go and win the Series!!
