And your point? Jim Johnson is a top closer in the league regardless of the amount of blown saves he has. He still leads the league in saves or is in the top 3. The yankees got the leadoff man on. You see it all the time, on a bunt the pitcher makes a bad throw to the second. Grandy bunts the two runners over. The yankees put the pressure on. And that was the half inning right after blowing a 3 run lead by the man who is supposed to replace Mo. To me thats good mental focus because a lot of teams would've deflated. Not to mention you had Soriano robbing a homerun in that same inning they blew the lead. That was a game saver.
This team would be the top team in the AL East, if not the league, had they had all their players for the duration of the playoffs.
