Why the 2009 season kicks all sorts of you know what...

Been posting this as a comment and it's too good not to post here:

Here’s how it breaks down:
Homestand #1: Cleveland and Oakland: Melky Cabrera walk off HR in the 14th inning.

Homestand #2: LA, Boston, TB: Jorge Posada walk-off single to cap off a five run comeback in the 8th and 9th innings.

Homestand #3: Minnesota, Baltimore, Philadelphia: Three walkoffs in a row vs Minnesota and then one against Philadelphia. Melky single, A-Rod homer, Damon homer, A-rod to tie and Melky to win.

Homestand #4: Texas and Tampa Bay, only walkoff-less stand of the year.

Homestand #5: Mets and Nationals, Luis Castillo dropped pop up.

Homestand #6: Mariners and Blue Jays, Jorge Posada 12th inning HR on Independence Day.

Homestand #7: Detroit, Baltimore, Oakland: Hideki Matsui bottom 9th HR against Baltimore (2-1 game).

Homestand #8: Boston and Toronto: A-Rod HR in 15th against Sox and Robinson Canó game-winning hit against Jays.

Homestand #9: Tonight, Robinson Canó 3r HR.

That's just one homestand, all season, where the Yankees did not have a walk off win.

That's, uh, impressive.
