I parted ways with the Yanks about the time Boggs came over from the Sox. I was not able to get along with upper management after that. Growing up in the baseball tight midwest, all who peed standing up followed the Yankees, even if you did not like them, which we all lied and said we didn't, you had to know how they did last night. How many did Guidry strikeout, or Mattingly went 4-4 with a walkoff dinger.
Although I never actually saw Yankee Stadium, I feel like something is just not right. Every time a piece of the past as big as this goes away, I wonder if it can ever be replaced. Sure the new stadium will rock, but in 85 years will it have that Yankee mystique. Will we look back and say it was the house that Chamberlain or Cano built. I not sure the Yankees can still be "The Yankees" now. You have to wonder if the outcome of this season was not the magical mystical powers of the legend that is Yankee Stadium quoting the great Yogi ""So I'm ugly. So what? I never saw anyone hit with his face."
I love the game so I will make it through this, but after Wrigley and Fenway go, we will have truly lost a great part of baseball history. That being said, one thing is for sure, The Cardinals will be back in the series next year. Go Cardinals.
