Can’t look at this as having to win 4 in a row. As Girardi said in the pregame press conference, win today. Deal with tomorrow tomorrow and the next day the next day. If A Rod does get traded in the offseason, which now seems to be an actual possibility, him playing the part of controversy lightning rod yet again and taking some of the pressure off the rest of the team would be a fitting final contribution. He’s done it his whole Yankee career, why stop 1 day before it could end? Every sports talk show in the world discussing his future with the team, the contract, the benching blah blah blah. I’ll take it. Meanwhile, the Yankees attempting to extend the series has become story line number 2. It starts today with CC and a clear advantage on the mound. Can’t win tomorrow’s game today. Just win today.
