Yankees even World Series with 6-1 win. (Yahoo!)

Two Baseball Nuts on the World Series. Allen Barra: "With all due respect to Derek Jeter, [Mariano] Rivera is the glue that has held these six World Series teams together. Replace him with an average or even good-to-average closer, and I'm not sure the Yankees win any of those championships. Maybe not even 1998." (Slate)

Jon Weisman: "[Shawn] Green is likely to need more shoulder surgery in his career, and even more likely to have to contend with pain in the shoulder. If playing with pain is the reason for his performance decline in 2003, then the home run hitter of previous years is probably gone for good." (Dodger Thoughts)
