The Yankees celebrated their division title after beating the Red Sox.

Now the Yankees have a choice of which division series they want to play. This notebook also has updates on Robinson Cano and Jorge Posada.

    On your second to last day of posts, I wish YOU all success up in Boston. I hope that you have a fun time writing about the woes, trials and tribulations of the Red Sox. Thanks for the Blog.

    BTW, even though the stadium started to empty a bit yesterday (probably Yom Kippur related) it was rocking. And very good to see Bruney pitch well. We were wondering why he didn’t acknowledge the crowd, but your excellent reporting revealed that to us. Thanks again.

    Yes, second Former Box. Thanks for all the fish, Pete.

    Betsy, now that the Yankees have clinched, I hope you’ll focus on the positive and not imagine things to worry about throughout the playoffs. Yanks are looking good.

    It’s a common mistake but only sparkling wine produced in the Champagne region in northeast France can be called “Champagne”.

    Sort of like calling Jameson’s Irish whiskey “Scotch”

    Pete– you are the best man! Check in on us from time to time…. And don’t forget to leave the link to your new blog.

    Bronx Jeers:
    Sort of like calling Miller Lite “beer”, right?

  6. Betsy September 28th, 2009 at 9:47 am

    Ditmars, I’m going to try, lol………..

  7. ditmars1929 September 28th, 2009 at 9:51 am

    Jeers, I hate it when people do that. Jameson’s is the nectar of the Gods, and should not be insulted by being grouped in with Scotch. Not that there’s anything wrong with Scotch, of course.

    Ansky, that comment is hilarious.

    Hang in there Betsy. Unless we get a strong dose of whatever befelled the Mets with all of their injuries, the Yankees will succeed.

    can’t believe you are actually leaving Pete, I was a lurker for a long time before posting and always enjoyed your reporting.

  9. ANSKY September 28th, 2009 at 9:52 am

    Pete, when are you starting your new blog in Chowdah Town? I’ll tell a few of the impish Sox fans I know to look for it.

    Can’t believe this is your second to last day. I’m glad you were the one to cover the AL East clinch. It’s only fitting you got to do it before you leave. Check in on us, and please let us know where we can find your new, evil team blog! lol

    Probably agree with picking the longer series, but the advantages Joe talks about also go to the opponents who have much shorter pitching staffs. One of our strengths is our depth of pitching.

    Congrats to the Yankees! Goodluck to Mr. Burnett today!

    Congrats AND Goodluck to Pete!

  13. Raf September 28th, 2009 at 10:14 am

    Pete best of luck and success in Boston, Yankee fans everywhere will miss your writing.

    Great win yesterday, and I really can’t wait for Game 1 next week. I hope the Twins and Tigers go the proverbial 15 rounds with each other this week battling it out for that division title so they are good and tired by the time they get to NY.

  15. Joe September 28th, 2009 at 10:19 am

    I keep saying this, if we play the Tigers, I say we play the short series so not to have to face Verlander twice. If we play the twin then they should do the long series.

    I am watching the Yankee celebration from last night. I had (successfully!) taped ESPN while watching YES, so this is really sweet. I got to watch the faces of the Sux as they filed out of the dugout, especially the disappointment/disgust on Ortiz’s face. That made me the happiest because I feel like he dodged a bullet he shouldn’t have been able to dodge.

    Anyway, it feels good to hear ESPN gush about the Yankees, especially the hypocrite Kruk. I will say about Gammons that no matter how much he does Sux novenas, he is always there to give credit to individual Yanks.

    Actually Kruk is sickening. What a phony. Didn’t he predict the Sux to take the division? To listen to him he knew it would be the Yankees all along.

    The sun is shining brightly today.

    Sounds reasonable to me, Joe. Also, if the Yankees close it out quickly, they’ll have more rest before the ALCS.

  18. upstate kate September 28th, 2009 at 10:33 am

    I did the opposite, watched ESPN and recorded YES. I was happy they kept cutting back to the celebration. Of course Baseball Tonight had to bring up the A-rod issue, how his season would be meaningless unless he plays well in the post season. Nevermind that he came back early from hip surgery and the Yankees started winning when he came back.

    Tlking about what you watched belongs on twitter. Please keep your comments to something most of care about.

  20. Joey's Poodle September 28th, 2009 at 10:48 am

    Jayhi hasn’t figured out that most of the time the comments here *personify* twitter — nothing unusual or worthy of note in that.
