Hideki Matsui was the hero, and Andy Pettitte was the winner. Pedro Martinez was defeated once again by the Yankees, marking the last time he faced the Yankees.
I sadly was not a member of this site when the Yankees won the World Series, but I did look back at the posts of that night. From the Pinstripe Alley Championship Thread:
The Yankees have shown perseverance. They have show their talent and determination. They are the champions we have wished and prayed and hoped for.
Hopefully the 2012 New York Yankees can be built with talent in mind, and the intangibles as secondary qualifications.
Hopefully the 2012 Yankees can make me write a post similar to this years later about the night they won the World Series.
What a November night that was.
