After a disappointing and disheartening loss in Anaheim, the Yankees are coming home to try to wrap up the American League Championship Series and clinch a spot in the World Series. It’s a new Yankee Stadium, but as Sam writes, it’s become a real home for the Yankees. They have yet to lose a playoff game at the new place.

On the mound for the Yankees, who else but Andy Pettitte? As I wrote, Pettitte had to spent Thursday assuming the Yankees were not going to clinch on the road. He has yet to make a postseason start at the new Yankee Stadium, but he has a chance to send the new place into the World Series.

Josh was at the stadium on Friday, and writes that the Yankees are confident heading into Game 6. The notebook also has information on the Yankees sticking with Phil Hughes and Joba Chamberlain as their setup relievers, a decision to make regarding Nick Swisher and the potential for John Lackey to start Game 7 if the series goes that far.
