That’s the (regular) season

The Yankees won 73 of their final 112 games after that 21-29 start. They also finished with 968 runs, the most for the franchise since 1937.

“In a lot of ways it was an amazing season,” Jorge Posada said.

Posada enjoyed his stint as manager. Joe Torre sat down the end of the bench talking to Chien-Ming Wang (“It was boring,” said the skipper. “That’s one thing I found out. But if you ask him a question he gives you a funny answer.”). All in all it was a carefree day.

Well, except for Derek Jeter. He was peeved that his buddy Posada made Andy Pettitte the bench coach.

“He was a terrible manager. There were a lot of problems that we’re going to keep in-house for now,â€? Jeter said. “He was awful.â€?

Jeter was kidding. At least we hope so.
