Thoughts on tonights game
Randy Johnson faces pretty much the same situation
tonight that Roger Clemens was facing for the 3rd
game. I'm not really sure there is any more pressure
to escape elimination than there is to escape a sweep.
Arizonia had just as much momentum at the start of
game 3 as the Yankees do tonight. But there is a
The Yankee players may have questioned a decision or 2
by Torre but they had complete confidence in him. I
don't see how the Arizonia players could not doubt
Bremly's ability to make decisions under pressure or
his ability to do what's best for the team.
Also, I think a feeling of inevitability has set in.
Ballplayers are humans and I'm certain at least some
of the players are thinking that this is the Yankees
year. That is a hard thing to overcome but under the
circumstances it is a difficult thought to avoid.
Johnson completely baffled the Yankees in game 2 and I
see no reason to doubt that he will do the same thing
tonight. But I do not believe this Series will go 7. I
expect a breakdown somewhere along the line tonight by
Arizonia. It could be something defensively, more
managing mistakes (I think it is likely that Bremly
will be trying TOO hard) but I think the Yanks will
finish it tonight.
It would be poetic justice if Arizonia came back in
the bottom of the 9th tonight. But don't hold your breath.

Since it's 12-0 ARZ at the end of three, I guess it's OK to close this thread.
