Five Days Ago In Yankee History

Ahh, those were incredible days. What a team...Greene pitching a gem, Drew knocking in the winner, great defense by Prado and Ellsbury and Cervelli...

You kids out there might not believe how good we were back then. Man, you shoulda seen that guy Headley play...he was really something. They should give him a plaque out in Monument Park, I tell ya.

Newfangled Yanks eye October with pitching, defense -- and something to prove
August 7, 2014
By Johnette Howard | ESPNNewYork.com 
...the Yanks...went out and outdueled Tigers Cy Young candidate Rick Porcello 1-0, with some terrific pitching and defense, defense and pitching... 
...[they] have the making of a remarkable story if they can keep doing the sort of things they did over the past seven days...the Yankees are already talking daily about October...Everything is October, October, October. 
...something Girardi said after the game is tried and true. 'If you get pitching and play defense, you're going to win a lot of games.'"
