It had been a very shaky season for the Yankees. They weren’t getting pitching from their top pitchers, Teixeira hadn’t gotten it done, but somehow the Yankees pulled it all together and now have the second best record in all of major league baseball. To me, there was a moment when all of the sudden things turned around. It was on May 14th against the Blue Jays. The Yankees were down 2-1 and tied up the game in the seventh. In the eight, Matsui came up and hit a go ahead home run that ended up being the game winner. Since that moment, the Yankees are 47-27, the best record in all of major league baseball. Before that moment, they were 16-17, third in their division. Now, they are atop their division.
