Here are some very important fact about the Yankees:
- The Yankees only used 3 postseason starting pitchers throughout the series mostly on a 3 or 4 day rest. CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett and Andy Pettite. The last team to win the World Series using 3 postseason starters was in 1991 the Minnesota Twins
- They won 27 championships, the most in any American Sports. What an accomplishment.
- Joe Girardi joins Ralph Houk and Billy Martin as the only men to win World Series for the Yankees as a player and a manager.
- Mark Teixeira is the first American League RBI leader to win a World Series since Reggie Jackson of the 1973 A's, and the first Yankee to lead the AL in RBI and win a World Series since Roger Maris in 1961. Many congrats to Mark and his fellow Teammates.
