Hard to believe any contending team could have been worse than the Yankees in September. They were beat up, their previously reliable rotation stumbled, and they played their worst baseball down the stretch. In October, though, no team advanced to the second round faster.

“It starts with the pitching,” Alex Rodriguez said. “(Games) 1, 2, 3, I think it got progressively better with Sabathia, Pettitte and Phil with the exclamation point. Down the stretch we always talk about that it’s pitching, defense and timely hitting. We had that in three games.”

The end result: A division series sweep and a Yankee Stadium celebration.
