I’m working on some off day stories and realized I have some extra audio from inside the Yankees clubhouse after Saturday’s game. The odd thing about postgame interviews after a clinching win is that there’s so much moving around. Get someone you need, stick around long enough to get the comment you want, then start looking for the next guy. It’s much more frantic than a regular-season clubhouse.
Derek Jeter: “Definitely enjoy this for a couple of days I guess and then get ready for the next round. But this definitely feels good.”
Alex Rodriguez: “I knew that our starting pitching would be there for us, and it was nice that they showed up.”
Nick Swisher: “We feel good. We’ve got ourselves in a good spot. Couple of days to maybe relax, have a great couple of workouts, and then we’ll figure out who we’re playing the next round.”
