You guys, game 7 of the 2001 World Series is tied at 1 in the 7th on MLBN. I feel like if NY can get Soriano to the plate in the 8th in a tie game, he will put them ahead and then Mo will of course close it out. Four straight titles!

Hahaha, Tim McCarver tells us at this point NY had had the lead for just 7 1/2 of the 66 innings of the series and were six outs away somehow. This genuinely might have the best postseason run I ever saw from NY, three ridiculous opponents in a row.

Man, grandparents will be telling their grandkids about Soriano's game-winning HR in the eighth inning of game 7 off Schilling. No one will ever forget this forever memorable moment.

Mariano gets through the 8th, just 3 outs to go. They're about to be only the third team ever to win four in a row, the first two of course different Yankee teams. It's starting to feel like they may never lose another postseason series. This will be their 12th series win in a row!!

It's not going to matter, but pretty incredible for Randy Johnson to come in and get four outs on zero days rest after going seven innings to win game six. Too bad one run against Rivera is like ten runs against anyone else...

Grace loops a single to center to lead off the ninth, just amping up the inevitable heartbreak for all seven D'Backs fans.

Oh no, my cable went out!!! WTF!!! I guess I'll watch Mo finish it on replay later, looking forward to going for #5 in 2002.

Strange that it's so quiet outside, usually people go crazy here when a NY team wins a title. I guess everyone's cable went out.

Brutal day for Al Leiter today on MLBN, they showed both of:

1997 WS game 3, FLA/CLE, Leiter's line was 4.2 6 7 4 6 3. He left down 7-3, but FLA came back to win 14-11.

1999 NLCS game 6, NYM/ATL. ATL won the first three games but the Mets had come back with two tight wins, the first five games were all low-scoring nailbiters with ATL outscoring NYM just 14-12. Leiter was determined to singlehandedly end the pitching-dominant series, this is how he started the bottom of the first:

HBP
BB
(double steal, E2, 1-0 ATL)
HBP
1B (2-0 ATL)
FC, no out
1B (4-0 ATL)

That was it for Al, no outs in an eventual 0 2 5 5 1 0 line in a game the Mets came back in multiple times but eventually lost 10-9 in 11 to end their season.

So Al's day on TV today: 4.2 8 12 9 7 3, 17 baserunners (including the 2 HBPs) in 4.2 IP does not seem ideal.

That is technically true, but the Mets should have scored 3 more runs if Ventura just rounded the bases In G5. Not that it matters of course.
