With his win tonight, Andy Pettitte has won two World Series clinching games and has started three. He is one of the great Yankees to be apart of the four most recent championships.
Hideki Matsui got his first ring tonight, and he was very deserving of the World Series MVP Award. He went 8-for-13 with 3 HRs and 8 RBIs. Tonight, he had six RBIs. That’ll do it.
Both of these guys aren’t guaranteed to be in pinstripes for next year. But their performances certainly urge both to stay with the Yankees and be re-signed.
