Yogi Berra died last night. And unlike most celebrity deaths, the loss of this man affected me.

You will read a lot of funny accounts of his “Yogi-isms” over the next few days. But never forget, there is wisdom in every single Yogi-Ism.

But also remember his legacy in New York baseball. From the 1947 World Series to the 1986 NLCS, Yogi Berra was in uniform for every single great post season moment except 2.

From the Al Giofriddo catch to the Don Larsen perfect Game to the Mazeroski homer to the Miracle Mets winning the World Series to the Chambliss homer to Reggie’s 3 shots in 1977 to Bucky Dent to the 16 inning Mets/Astros marathon, Yogi was there.
It ain’t over until it is over on Episode 1,065 of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Big Collapses in MLB (1964-2011) + NYY And TEX Are in The Playoffs But May Choke Away Divisions

Wednesday, October.3/2012

The Athletics are 71-38 since June.2nd and have forced a winner take the AL West crown matchup tonight versus the Rangers. They once trailed the Rangers by 13 games at the 80 game mark.

Chuck Booth (Lead Baseball Writer):

In case you may have missed the standings of late, the Yankees and Rangers are in danger of choking away the AL East and AL West.  If MLB had decided to not infiltrate this year’s extra Wild Card playoff birth, we could have been in line for another monumental collapse.  Both of the Yankees and Rangers held sizable leads in their respective divisions over the Athletics and Orioles heading into the second half of the year.  Now it has come down to Game 162 for each club to decide the divisions.  If the perennial playoff teams of TEX and NYY end up losing their divisions, they still will have a playoff game against each other on Friday to see who moves on to the ALDS.

If you are a Yankees fan, you have to be elated the Raul Ibanez pulled a rabbit out of his hat last night,  with a 2 run HR to tie the game vs the Red Sox-and then he won it with a single in the 12th.   If the Yankees can win today versus the Red Sox, they will clinch the AL East division and best record in the American League.  It is nice to have your own fate in your hands, but really it should not have come down to this.  On July.18, the Yankees had a 10 game lead over the Orioles and were looking to cruise for the rest of the year.  Ever since that day, the Orioles have ridden 16 straight extra inning wins to post a 46-24 (.657) stretch in which they have pulled to within 1 game of the Bronx Bombers.  The Yankees have gone 37-33 (.529) in that same stretch.  So it all comes down to the Yankees have a magic number of one.  If New York wins, they clinch the division, if they lose and the Orioles lose, they win the division.  If they lose and the Orioles win, it will force a one-game playoff Thursday in Baltimore in which the winner takes the AL East and the loser would play the AL West loser in the Wild Card Game Friday.  The winner of the AL East will play the winner of the Wild Card game.

Amazing enough is all of the extra inning wins, now on the 162nd game of the season, the Orioles still have a chance to tie for the AL East crown with a win over Tampa Bay and a Yankees Loss to the Red Sox.
