First things first:

Wins for Yankee managers
1. Joe McCarthy 1,460
2. Joe Torre 1,150
3. Casey Stengel 1,149

Torre said this milestone meant the most to him because he grew up in New York when Stengel was managing the Yanks. “This was my lifetime,” he said. “I’m very proud of this.”

The clubhouse was full of praise for Andy Pettitte, who shut down a good team in a game the Yankees really needed.

“What he did was special,” Jorge Posada said.

And everybody was buzzing about Joba Chamberlain’s 8th inning. He threw 11 of his 15 pitches for strikes and struck out the side. His second pitch to Vlad Guerrero was 100 and the gun here is slow.

“He told me in the dugout that it was the best he had,” Phil Hughes said.

Joba was humble afterward, which is a good sign. Here is the audio of his brief interview session with a few of us:

Brief because it was closing in on 2 a.m. back in New York. He said he was able to locate the 100-mph heater. “I was happy I stayed outer half with that,” he said.

Locating a fastball like that? Yikes.
