Give 'Em The Heimlich!

Give the Yankees the heimlich because the just took the title of "Choke Artists of the Century." Even called it an "epic choke." The first MLB team ever to go into game 4 with a 3-0 lead then allow the other team to force a game 7. Not only that, the Yanks capped it off by losing a 4th strait game to the Sox, eliminating themselves from the postseason.

But what a game! The Sox's 2nd Batter hits a 2 run home run in the first. Then Johnny Damon with a grand slam in the 2nd to make the game 6-0. The Yankees scored one in the third and then Damon did it again with a 2 run dinger in the 4th. The yanks made it 8-3 in the 7th, but they could not stop the Sox.

And now tonight the Cardinals will top off game 7 vs the Astros, so long as they can get through The Rocket. They need to do what they did last time they faced him. They need to have the hit squad (Walker, Pujols, Edmonds, Rolen) rattle The Rocket with some long balls and sustain the attack through the game. Kinda like the Red Sox.

Grab your necks Yankees, and give the universal sign that you just choked.
