Has everyone’s heart rate slowed down just yet, or will it take a bit longer to come down from last night’s remarkable Yankees win?

I’m sitting just outside of Gate 4, waiting for a 6:15 flight out of New York. I have the game story for today’s newspaper, which calls last night the first postseason classic of the new Yankee Stadium. A few hours after writing it, I stand by that assessment.

Sam has a column on Alex Rodriguez and his defining moment as a Yankee. These two games have surely done a lot to change the image of A-Rod as a postseason choke artist.

In the end, there was an obvious sidebar to Game 2, and that’s Josh’s story on umpire Phil Cuzzi’s blown call in left field. There’s no telling what would have happened had Joe Mauer been given a hit on that drive to left, but based on how the rest of the inning unfolded, it certainly could have changed things.

Finally, Josh and I worked together on a notebook, which leads with the fact Rodriguez likely does not need further surgery on his hip. There’s also mention of Hideki Matsui, Joba Chamberlain, Brett Gardner and Twins center fielder Carlos Gomez.
