I posted last January how good I thought the Yankees' rotation would be in 2009. This was one of the comments:
...stop making excuses for cc. he peformed poorly in the 2007 postseason as well. he is not a good postseason player. he chokes, just like a-fraud. for the highest payroll in baseball, your precious yankees are pathetic. the red sox will easily win the american league east. everytime the yankees try to outspend other teams, and overpay for players, they never get the job done. this year will be no different. you can't just spend to make it to the world series.Fail.
I don't know who made this comment since I changed my commenting system, but I think this person (likely a Red Sox fan) went a little overboard with his or her predictions.
CC's postseason record in '09: 3-1, 1.98 ERA, 32 K
A-Rod's postseason in '09: .365 BA, 6 HR, 18 RBI
AL East winner in '09: Yankees
World Series winner in '09: Yankees
Highest payroll in MLB in '09: Yankees
