The sun shines on a celebration

photoThe Yankees have beaten the Red Sox 4-2 to secure the American League East title and the best record in the AL, which brings with it home-field advantage throughout the postseason.

After a gloomy start to the day, the sun broke through the clouds late in the game and there were blue skies over the Stadium for the final inning. The crowd of 47,576 was standing and cheering for the final out.

The Yankees (100-56) won their first division title since 2006 and have 100 wins for the first time since 2004.

They will start pursuit of their 27th world championship on either Oct. 7 or Oct. 8 against either Detroit or Minnesota in the Bronx.

Back later with reaction from the clubhouse. Tell you what, I get the feeling these two teams are going to play again.

  7. Fondo Motz September 27th, 2009 at 5:09 pm

    It’s a great feeling to win.

  8. BigYank1 September 27th, 2009 at 5:10 pm

    Yankees win!!! :)

  9. Fondo Motz September 27th, 2009 at 5:10 pm

    Now ESPN is sucking up. Get off so we can get to the YES postgame

  10. Larry Mahnken September 27th, 2009 at 5:10 pm

    and have 100 wins for the first time since 2004.

    Well, hopefully it’ll turn out better this time…

  11. Carl September 27th, 2009 at 5:10 pm

    woooooooooo!

  12. Jim the VT Yankeefan September 27th, 2009 at 5:11 pm

    Woooo-hooooo!

  13. Nick von Clausewitz in SF September 27th, 2009 at 5:12 pm

    Let the record reflect that I happily gave dennis the Sox fan the winning parlay this morning:

    “I also like the Yankees/NY Giants parlay.”

    :)

    The Captain’s YES post-game reaction:

    (listen to how slow Morgan starts talking and then blows past the conratulations)

  15. Bronx Jeers September 27th, 2009 at 5:12 pm

    Such a great feeling sweeping the Sox and clinching the division in the same moment.

    I really hope they do see each other in the ALCS.

  16. Pel (a/k/a Bart Simpson, a/k/a O.J. Simpson) September 27th, 2009 at 5:13 pm

    DAMN! The link didn’t paste.

    Hold on.

  17. Amy September 27th, 2009 at 5:14 pm

    I’m so happy… unfortunately I couldn’t watch the game, footballers took over the dorm TV =( but this was a thriller! Nice battle by Pettitte, some TIMELY hitting by Matsui and Teix … the Yankees are all the way back, baby!

  18. Fondo Motz September 27th, 2009 at 5:16 pm

    Time to stain those new clubhouse rugs

  19. Bronx Jeers September 27th, 2009 at 5:17 pm

    What the?

    There’s champagne flowing….get to the locker room!

  20. Adam September 27th, 2009 at 5:17 pm

    Good news for Pete, the red sox won’t get past the Angels…early break for him!

    Last week I was concerned that the Yankees were struggling.5 out of 6 against the Sox and Angels was the answer that I wanted to see.Not only that but they won playoff type games.Team looks VERY good right now.Looking forward to the postseason.

  23. S.A.--Serenity Now September 27th, 2009 at 5:18 pm

    What a wonderful sports day this has been. :lol:

  24. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 5:19 pm

    Where is AJ and his pie? Maybe he’ll get Joe when he’s on YES……..

  25. E-gawa September 27th, 2009 at 5:19 pm

    quick where’s John Kruk.. he needs to eat some more crow

  26. zmaster September 27th, 2009 at 5:19 pm

    niiiicccee!!! congratlations yankees & all of us diehard fans!!!

  27. GreenBeret7 September 27th, 2009 at 5:20 pm

    Not sure, but Burnett was either getting ready to drown Waldman in champagne or pie her.

    The day was like the season — gloomy to sunny. I know some of you want to see the Sox in the ALCS because we can’t, supposedly, beat the Angles. I say phooey — I don’t care if I do see the Sawx again this season. Of course, Pete wants to; he has every reason to want to. Many more newspapers are sold on the basis of NYY-BOS than any other matchup.

  30. Nick von Clausewitz in SF September 27th, 2009 at 5:21 pm

    Yankees, Giants, Jets, when is the last time that all three of the New York professional teams won on the same day?

  31. igotid88 September 27th, 2009 at 5:21 pm

    I said 105 wins

  32. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 5:22 pm

    AJ may be too drunk to pie anyone, lol

  33. Fondo Motz September 27th, 2009 at 5:22 pm

    I guess the secret is the Yanks, Giants and Jets have to play their games at the same time !

  34. m shirt September 27th, 2009 at 5:22 pm

    Kruk’s accusing Jetes and Posada of skipping the celebration bc they didnt appear on the five-second ESPN pan thru the locker room.

  35. NYY626 - Go Andy September 27th, 2009 at 5:22 pm

    Swish looks like he’s thirsty LOL

  36. Carl September 27th, 2009 at 5:23 pm

    Thanks Pel! Chea!!!!!! yanks!!!!!!!!!

  37. 213 Area Code September 27th, 2009 at 5:23 pm

    Pete, if you’re right & they meet again, please accept my apology now for not extending you “greetings & salutations” then.
    To NYY Universe: 100 wins, AL EDivChamp, & making 0/8 start vs.Beant’n irrelevant: YESSSSSS!!!

    Actually, in his interview, he was happy but, rather subdued. He’s flying out shortly to see his father.

  39. nature boy September 27th, 2009 at 5:23 pm

    haha swisher shouts out his bleacher creatures

  40. trisha - OPPC lifetime member September 27th, 2009 at 5:24 pm

    Question for DVR people. How do you record one station while watching another? If I hit the record button on ESPN and then change to YES will ESPN continue to record, or will YES start to record?

    Thanks.

  41. Fondo Motz September 27th, 2009 at 5:24 pm

    Nobody giving Kim a champagne bath. What gives?

  42. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 5:24 pm

    GB, oops – I forgot. Poor AJ – I hope all goes well with his father.

  43. S.A.--Serenity Now September 27th, 2009 at 5:24 pm

    Gammons giving Youuuuuse lotsa love on ESPN

  44. Ed in Oregon September 27th, 2009 at 5:25 pm

    Congratulations Yankees and Yankee fans on winning the division and taking the first step toward mission 27

  45. JasonR September 27th, 2009 at 5:25 pm

    “Question for DVR people. How do you record one station while watching another? If I hit the record button on ESPN and then change to YES will ESPN continue to record, or will YES start to record?”

    If you have two tuners you can record one and watch the other. Or record both. If you only have one tuner you can record the show but you can’t change the channel.

  46. DT - OPPC member (blood type - Positive) September 27th, 2009 at 5:25 pm

    “Yankees, Giants, Jets, when is the last time that all three of the New York professional teams won on the same day?”

    the Mets won too, but you did say “professional” teams.

  47. Bill Porter September 27th, 2009 at 5:26 pm

    BTW – Thank you Brian Cashman! Nice Job.

  48. NYY626 - Go Andy September 27th, 2009 at 5:26 pm

    Haha Mo got Kim!

  49. Fondo Motz September 27th, 2009 at 5:26 pm

    Mo got her.

  50. Wolf In Pinstripes September 27th, 2009 at 5:26 pm

    * sprays champagne all over *

    Wooo-hooo!!! Go Yanks!!!

    Pete, so glad you could be around for this – it wouldn’t be right if they hadn’t clinched before you had to leave. 8)

  51. Pel (a/k/a Bart Simpson, a/k/a O.J. Simpson) September 27th, 2009 at 5:26 pm

    Kim got the champagne treatment. :razz:

  52. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 5:26 pm

    Tex looked dorky in his goggles, lol

  53. Tom in N.J. September 27th, 2009 at 5:26 pm

    Rivera, of all people, soaks Kim.

  54. Ed – campaigning for Josh Willingham (it worked for Gaudin) September 27th, 2009 at 5:26 pm

    Kim doesn’t like the champenge pouring! lol

  55. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 5:27 pm

    GB, when was AJ interviewed? Not on YES……….was it on ESPN? Shoot……..

  56. Tom in N.J. September 27th, 2009 at 5:27 pm

    I just went outside and tipped over my lawnmower!

  57. trisha - OPPC lifetime member September 27th, 2009 at 5:27 pm

    Damn. Not sure how many tuners I have. All I know is that I pushed the record button while it was on ESPN, and now I switched over to YES. I guess I’ll find out eventually.

    :(

  58. Jeremy September 27th, 2009 at 5:28 pm

    Did you guys notice how mad Peter Gammons was in the studio ? LOL. He was like if they don’t win the Ws they failed. Ha ! Peter Gammons is pissed.

  59. Stevie September 27th, 2009 at 5:29 pm

    Kim looks so sexy all wet :)

  60. vitus September 27th, 2009 at 5:30 pm

    There were more than 1000 fans on Yankee board in Taiwan cheering for the win at 5 AM over here. It’s now 5:29 AM and I don’t think I can sleep. Luckily it’s my day off today.

    Go all the way Yankees!

  61. Anthony Murillo September 27th, 2009 at 5:30 pm

    Peter Gammons looks like someone punched his puppy in the face

    ————————————————————

    Yeah, Burnett really played a huge role in helping cement the clubhouse personalities. Along with Sabathia and Teixeira, they were huge in that aspect. Swisher basically took over Giambi’s role as “clown” and with the bat. He was, however better in right field that Giambi was at 1st base. Offense has been a push. Best of luck to the Burnett family.

  63. Cliff September 27th, 2009 at 5:31 pm

    Karl Ravich, only talking about what if arod situations in the playoffs, so annoying

  64. Jeremy September 27th, 2009 at 5:31 pm

    ESPN is already saying that the Yankees have to win and if they don’t it’s Alex’s fault. ESPN is so funny.

  65. JasonR September 27th, 2009 at 5:31 pm

    “Damn. Not sure how many tuners I have. All I know is that I pushed the record button while it was on ESPN, and now I switched over to YES. I guess I’ll find out eventually.”

    Usually you’ll get a warning if you change the channel if whatever you’re doing interrupts your recording, so I think you’ll be fine. :)

  66. nature boy September 27th, 2009 at 5:31 pm

  68. BBFan September 27th, 2009 at 5:32 pm

    “Tell you what, I get the feeling these two teams are going to play again.”

    I doubt it.
    Angels will win against Sox this year.

  69. Nick von Clausewitz in SF September 27th, 2009 at 5:32 pm

    hey Anthony Murillo, can you re-post that pic of you and Chien-ming Wang? I wanted to send a link to a Yankee-fan buddy in Taiwan but I forgot to save the link that day.

  70. trisha - OPPC lifetime member September 27th, 2009 at 5:33 pm

    Jason – thanks!

  71. Wolf In Pinstripes September 27th, 2009 at 5:33 pm

    The only thing that could have made this better IMO, would have been somebody giving Joe G a pie in the face while he was being interviewed.

  72. Carl September 27th, 2009 at 5:33 pm

    ESPN is terrible. Trying to put everything on Alex now.

  73. davidson September 27th, 2009 at 5:33 pm

    Vitus what’s the address of the Yankee board in TAIWAN?

    Great job Yankees!!

    SWEET – The Yankee Empire extends world wide!

  75. testing September 27th, 2009 at 5:34 pm

    great day for ny sports fans… couldnt be happier with this team… cant wait for postseason!!!!!

  76. GreenBeret7 September 27th, 2009 at 5:34 pm

    How appropriate that the winning pitcher in the clincher was Pettitte with Rivera closing it out. Jeter was Jeter. Only Posada was missing on the field.

  77. trisha - OPPC lifetime member September 27th, 2009 at 5:34 pm

    “Angels will win against Sox this year.”

    BBF, absolutely agree with you. It almost feels unfair that Pete won’t be covering all of the postseason with and for us. I think Pete’s reporting season will be ending sooner rather than later.

  78. yankees_jp September 27th, 2009 at 5:35 pm

    Yeah Baby!!!

  79. Stevie September 27th, 2009 at 5:35 pm

    Keep all sharp objects away from Peter Gammons.

  80. Nick von Clausewitz in SF September 27th, 2009 at 5:37 pm

    Why wouldn’t Pete cover the whole post-season? The Globe is still considered a major metropolitan newspaper, and those usually send someone to cover the ALCS and World Series. They should send Pete to New York to cover the team he knows well.

  81. GreenBeret7 September 27th, 2009 at 5:37 pm

    On a side note…Rivera is now tied for the MLB lead in saves. It would be great to see him get the lead after all the whining about his homer numbers earlier this year.

  82. The Ghost September 27th, 2009 at 5:38 pm

    GB7, don’t forget Matsui, the only other remaining member who has a Yankee pennant to his name getting the go ahead 2 out base hit. Matsui’s contributions to this team have been very underrated. He’s gotten a TON of big hits.

  83. testing September 27th, 2009 at 5:38 pm

    anyone else catch jason zillo rip the champagne bottle out of alexs hands right b4 his interview with kim… just thought it was funny

  84. NYY626 - Go Andy September 27th, 2009 at 5:38 pm

    Alex has a lil beard going on….

  85. nature boy September 27th, 2009 at 5:38 pm

    it seems like alex is getting pretty emotional

  86. trisha - OPPC lifetime member September 27th, 2009 at 5:39 pm

    Yeah I forgot that aspect. He just might not be covering it the way we would have wanted – as a press member of the winning team.

  87. Fondo Motz September 27th, 2009 at 5:39 pm

    The best thing Alex can do throughout the playoffs is eat humble pie.

  88. Kat September 27th, 2009 at 5:39 pm

    Haven’t posted in a while (years, maybe) but I must say how happy I am to watch this and read everyone’s comments and be part of the yankee fan family. To the playoffs we go!

  89. testing September 27th, 2009 at 5:39 pm

    i think zillo deserves a lot of credit for arods improved more subdued image this season

  90. Tom in N.J. September 27th, 2009 at 5:40 pm

    Dr. Marc Philippon M.V.P. !!

  91. NYY626 - Go Andy September 27th, 2009 at 5:40 pm

    Aww Alex just said “its easy to have 100 RBI when you have 2 guys in front of you who should be MVP”.

  92. chris September 27th, 2009 at 5:42 pm

    Girardi is crying

  93. Fondo Motz September 27th, 2009 at 5:44 pm

    Joe must really be missing the Marlins at this point. Ya think?

  94. MikeinBH September 27th, 2009 at 5:44 pm

    Kim Jones is doing a phenomenal job with interviews. She has really improved over the past few years and should be a mainstay with the broadcast team for many years.

  95. B-D-4 straphanger September 27th, 2009 at 5:44 pm

    Can Gammons say Red Sox any more than he does ? And this goof is in the HOF ?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luKmSLXukaw

  96. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 5:45 pm

    GB, it’s sad that AJ can’t really be a part of the celebration. Hopefully all will go well with his dad and he can get Joe after they win the ALDS

  97. Fondo Motz September 27th, 2009 at 5:45 pm

    I have to agree that Kim is doing a great job here.

  98. MikeinBH September 27th, 2009 at 5:46 pm

    Fondo,

    Definitely. And the guys seem to really get along with her and like her.

  99. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 5:46 pm

    GB, thanks! HOpefully CBS 880 will have replays of the interviews…

  100. MikeinBH September 27th, 2009 at 5:47 pm

    Alex seems different too. It seems like he has finally been humbled. Really matured. He is almost a Jeter-esque interview now.

  101. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 5:48 pm

    Kim kept Alex forever…….I kept waiting for her to let him go and celebrate

  102. Carl September 27th, 2009 at 5:48 pm

    I pray that Pel will post the Yes audio :)

  103. Tom in N.J. September 27th, 2009 at 5:49 pm

    Home Field was also clinched today…

  104. E-gawa September 27th, 2009 at 5:49 pm

    Alex isn’t getting hammered by the NY press every day. That’s why.

  105. Tom A September 27th, 2009 at 5:50 pm

    Nice that they wrapped it up on Pete’s watch!!! Plus Boston to boot!!

  106. djsunyc September 27th, 2009 at 5:50 pm

  108. Tom in N.J. September 27th, 2009 at 5:50 pm

    Somebody may have it, Betsy. Try WCBS 880.com, or, whatever their web site is. It might pop up on there.

    AWwwwwwwwwwwwwww AJ and Andy. Did the Yankees go on a group trip to the barber? I hope AJ grows his hair out again….anyway, how sweet is Andy with his arm around AJ? Clearly AJ really appreciates the help he’s gotten from Andy………so nice to see.

  120. Rgr September 27th, 2009 at 5:56 pm

    Since when does girardi wear braces?

  121. GreenBeret7 September 27th, 2009 at 5:57 pm

    Watching Burnett on YES, you can see how much Burnett admires and looks up to Pettitte.

  122. NYY626 - Go Andy September 27th, 2009 at 5:57 pm

    Did you guys hear what AJ said after Kim asked what have you learned from Pettitte?

    ” Never too old to be dirty”. LOL

  123. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 5:57 pm

    What’s that game where you take a magnet and it moves the iron thingies around ? Something with Willie? That’s what Phil’s mustache looks like……

  124. islesfan September 27th, 2009 at 5:59 pm

    If ESPN were a newspaper, the Yankees story for tomorrow would be buried in the obits.

  125. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 5:59 pm

    GB, yep……that was evident in ST. AJ was lockered next to Andy and reports always mentioned how AJ peppered Andy with questions. Also, AJ called Andy after he signed and pressed Andy as to when he was going to sign…….and he didn’t even know Andy, lol

  126. NYY626 - Go Andy September 27th, 2009 at 5:59 pm

    I know exactly what you’re talking about Betsy, I just cant remember what its called.

  127. Doreen September 27th, 2009 at 5:59 pm

    We got home just in time for the top of the 9th. YEAH!!!!

    Congratulations to the NY Yankees – AL EAst Division Champs. :D

    Been watching the YES post-game.

    Where’s the pie, Jenn?????

    :lol:

    Sorry but the timing just made me smile.

  129. Azaz September 27th, 2009 at 6:00 pm

    wonder if torre calls jeter

  130. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 6:02 pm

    Doreen, there won’t be any pie tonight………..

  131. islesfan September 27th, 2009 at 6:02 pm

    The 2009 World Series goes through Yankee Stadium. I like that.

  132. Azaz September 27th, 2009 at 6:02 pm

    teixeira “alex is one of the greatest players of all time”

  133. trisha - OPPC lifetime member September 27th, 2009 at 6:02 pm

    ETCH-A-SKETCH!

  134. Adam September 27th, 2009 at 6:02 pm

    Keep Girardi no matter how the post-season ends. Anyone second that?

  135. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 6:04 pm

    Trish, that’s not it…..though I love etch-a-sketch. No, you actually take this wand and move it over these iron bits and you can make a weird haircut or whatever……Phil’s new growth looks like someone started that game and left before finishing it, lol

  136. trisha - OPPC lifetime member September 27th, 2009 at 6:05 pm

    You’re right. etch-a-sketch is the one where you pull the paper and the drawing disappears.

  137. trisha - OPPC lifetime member September 27th, 2009 at 6:06 pm

    Girardi stays ABSOLUTELY.

  138. Kat September 27th, 2009 at 6:07 pm

    WOOLY WILLY!

  139. Wolf In Pinstripes September 27th, 2009 at 6:07 pm

    That would be “Wooly Willy”, Betsy. Doreen and I had fun bringing that old toy in conversation a while back.

  140. NYY626 - Go Andy September 27th, 2009 at 6:08 pm

    Kat – thats it!

  141. Rgr September 27th, 2009 at 6:08 pm

    You extend girardi 2 seasons past the 2010 season

  142. E-gawa September 27th, 2009 at 6:08 pm

    not the time or place to talk about who stays or goes.. enjoy the now and leave that talk for the offseason.

  143. Doreen September 27th, 2009 at 6:10 pm

    Wolf -

    I remember that!!! :)

    Betsy – Why no pie of Girardi, though? If not now, when?

    (It’s okay, I was hoping – it would have been neat – well, sloppy, but neat-o!)

  144. trisha - OPPC lifetime member September 27th, 2009 at 6:10 pm

    For the record, I didn’t believe for a minute that Girardi was going to lose his job if the Yankees didn’t make the postseason. Yankee organization isn’t as flighty as Yankee fans are.

    ============

    that brings up an interesting thought. Were Yankee fans as impatient as they are now prior to the Steinbrenner era? Any old timers want to chime in here? I go back to the late seventies where Yankee fan impatiences seemingly fed off of Big Stein’s short fuse.

    The Club with the best record in the American League will have the right to decide whether it will play in the seven-day or eight-day Division Series (i.e., whether it will start its Division Series on Wednesday, Oct. 7 or Thursday, Oct. 8). The A.L. Club with the best record will make its selection no later than one hour following the completion of any game that finalizes which club will have the best record in the Championship Season or finalizes the matchups in the Division Series, whichever is later.

    dOES THAT MEAN TONIGHT?

    Wow. Texas pen coughed it up huh?

    Too bad. I would have liked the Sox to take that ride home knowing they gained nothing this weekend.

  149. Jeremy September 27th, 2009 at 6:19 pm

    Peter Gammons is so mad. Seeing him upset is funny. I hope ad pray that the Yankees win it all so that he will really be upset. Especially if the Yankees get to the World Series and win it by beating Boston in the ALCS.

  150. Carl September 27th, 2009 at 6:19 pm

    “… or finalizes the matchups in the Division Series, whichever is later.

    That answers the question right there. They have till after it is decided if the Twinkies or the Tiggers are in for their division.

  152. haiku-man September 27th, 2009 at 6:21 pm

    Michael Hurley writer for nesn.com,writes the article,~Yankees sweep red sawx to clinch division and homefield,makes this quote.~

    “It’s only fitting that,Mark Teixiera,the man who appeared destined for the red sawx in the offseason,was the difference maker in the season series finale,allowing the Yankees to even the series at 9 games apiece.”

    They hate not getting Tex,awh!

  153. Betsy September 27th, 2009 at 6:26 pm

    LOL at David Cone referring to OYS as the ex-wife looking over the shoulders (of NYS)

  154. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes September 28th, 2009 at 12:24 am

    “Tell you what, I get the feeling these two teams are going to play again.”

    Too bad you’ll be writing about the Red Sox if and when they do.

    Your writing today inclines me to believe you’re going to miss this job. Probably a lot more than you may realize at present.

  155. Malpaso September 28th, 2009 at 4:19 pm

    People…just remember the last time the Yanks won the division and you all counted your chickens. Listen to your heroes and stop making silly predictions about the Red Sox and #27. Karma is a beeyootch.
