    Man, I wanted him dealt in the worst way, and here he is, the reason I spent a half an hour on a school night celebrating with my son. Thank you, Brett, and thank you, Brian.

    After fouling off the 10th or 11th pitch, camera caught him peeking at the Yankee dugout and smiling. Legendary.

    Noticed that too... One of the greatest at-bats I can remember.

    Its amazing how bad that inning looks if the Yankees don't score at least one run that inning.

    Brett battling was great [although I never thought it would end well given how many balls he swung at].

    I think by the time his at bat was done Chapman had been sitting about 30 minutes.

    Bretts at bat crushed the Inidians and their fans and total re-energized Chapman IMO.

    I can honestly say he has been one of my fav players since coming up. Tonight just enforced that.

    I love baseball in general and the Yankees just happen to be my favorite team since I knew what baseball was.

    I wanted him traded after they signed Ellsbury, since they seemed like redundant players at the time. I'm very happy to be wrong.

    I can't remember him ever playing better than he is right now.

    he's been grinding out at-bats all postseason, catalyzing run-scoring, getting key sac flies, etc

    Yes; I have been advocating a trade for at least two years. But Gardner has just kept getting better. I said he could not be part of the rebuild. But it came sooner and he is a key part of this team. What an at-bat in the ninth last night!

    It is tough to predict career arcs, I think. Contrast Gardner's and Ellsbury's.
