Is it that Arod finally got his due? A 5th ring for the core four? Finally beating the Angels and finally moving on from the 2004 debacle? What was the best part of this championship for you?
For me, it's two things:
First, it's seeing Andy Pettitte redeem himself after the HGH stuff from last year. He's always been a bulldog and even now, after all he's been through, after nearly retiring, he came up huge and proved once again that it's not about who throws the hardest or who gets paid the most money - it's about having that competitive fire and passion for the game.
Second, it's the greatness of Mo. Every year for the past 5 years or so I think to myself "OK, this could be the year that he comes down to Earth" and every year he just keeps on throwing that impossible cutter. Many great athletes win championships in their prime and then flame out and many athletes don't get to play for a championship until late in their careers. Mo has done both and he has sustained greatness throughout. Here's to however many more years Mo has left in that magical right arm of his. We are truly lucky to be witness to his greatness!
