The Yankees are one win from the World Series and they don’t need any reminders about what happened the last time they were this close. The memories of 2004 are still fresh, so they’re taking it one game at a time, and Chad Jennings has all the details on the team’s approach to Game 5.

A.J. Burnett has been pitching behind CC Sabathia all season, and now he’s got a chance to provide the ultimate follow-up: A spot in the World Series. I looked at Burnett’s first season in New York in my column.

Joe Girardi figures to stick with what’s worked in Game 5, subbing in Jose Molina to catch Burnett and putting Jorge Posada on the bench. The notebook also has items on Derek Jeter’s health, an intriguing international free agent and more.
