So tonight I’m heading up to the Bronx for Game 3 of the ALCS, Yankees versus the Rangers.
Andy Pettitte versus Cliff Lee.
Cliff Lee is a great pitcher. He is 6-0 in postseason play. Everyone is expecting the Yankees to lose.
One thing that I know, is that NOTHING is a guarantee in sports (and life).
The best pitcher (or team for that matter) doesn’t win.
The pitcher (or team) that PLAYS best wins.
Records don’t matter. Reputations don’t matter.
As a matter of fact, Derek Jeter said, “Reputation doesn’t win games. You still have to go out there and pitch.”
It’s all about who performs better on that day.
It all starts at 8:07pm tonight.
