In response to RedSoxFireman's comment:
They had a great regular season
97 wins isn't a "great regular season". Ecellent, but not great.
Had the Yankees not lost Tex and Jeter for virtually the entire season, it would have been low 90's.
You're saying that if the Yankees had Tex and Jeter we would have won 6 less games against them.
So you're saying that instead of 13-6 against them, we would have been 7-12.
And you're saying this in spite of the facts that:
a) we scored 120 runs in the 19 games or 6.3 runs per game, and
b) Tex and Jeter are not pitchers.
So, Jeter and Tex make a 6 game difference within an 18 game sample size. If you projected that to every team they played, I guess the clown is saying the Yanks would have won 120 games had the two declining players been healthy.
I can't understand why we can't just enjoy the great season.
Great is "of ability, quality, or eminence considerably above the normal or average."
Excellent is "extremely good; outstanding."
