I have read Ju-Ju rules, many times.
The book provides techniques we can ( and should ) all use ( techniques whose efficacy has been proven over the years ) to give the Yankees a leg up at critical moments. Certainly, each game of this World Series represents a critical moment.
As a consequence, I am sticking with the above photo as long as the Yankees continue to thrive. If we lose tonight, at Shea, I'll return to the archives. But a key Ju-Ju rule is: " always stay with what worked for you most recently." The Yankees played their best ball of the year in their 7-1 win, so I am sticking to the routine.
Last night, on WFAN, in NYC, Suzyn and John did a call in show to summarize what the first two games have revealed. Oddly enough, at about 1:15 am, a call came in from El Duque ( he tried to disguise his voice );
El Duque : "What are the keys to the Yankees' success in the first two games?"
John: " Why don't you take this one Suzyn?"
Suzyn; " But you are the voice of the Yankees, John."
John: " True. But I sense this is a set-up question, and I don't want to be stung."
El Duque : " Perhaps I should re-phrase the question. How is it that Didi is playing more like Alcides Escobar than himself?"
John: " Why don't you take this one, Suzyn?"
Sidebar: Audience hears phone slammed on the other end.
It was, if nothing else, entertaining.
Suzyn did offer, at one point, an argument that Adam Warren should start tonight, but I'm pretty sure it will be Severino.
