BASEBALL: No Omen

Another too-busy-to-blog day, but before we get rolling with Game Two, I'll leave you with your depressing Hated Yankees postseason stat of the day:

Since 1995, the Yankees have played in 19 postseason serieses (not counting this one), and won 15 of them. They have won the first game of a series 12 times and lost 7 times. How does that break down?

Record when winning the first game: 9-3.
Record when losing the first game: 6-1.
Record when losing the first two games: 2-1.

It's not how you start against the Yankees. It's how you finish.

Since you seem to be interested in baseball and politics, I thought you might enjoy this post about the political implications of the Red Sox-Yankees series.
