Yes, it would have been nice to get the series over with in Philadelphia. Yes, it stinks that A.J. Burnett couldn’t make it through the third inning last night. But still, the Yankees have it set up perfectly for the final two games in New York, leaving me a happy camper.
I know this may be a little contradictory to my previous thoughts on this, but having A.J. Burnett start yesterday makes Andy Pettitte the Game 6 starter (just announced) and presumably CC Sabathia for Game 7, which I like.
It’s always nice to win in your hometown too.
