Garrett Atkins on the series outcome:
Yeah, those Yankees "fans" had no idea what hit them. This is the first time in a decade that Yankees fans have experienced this kind of losing, and if you visit Pinstripe Alley you'll find some of those fans. Now, if you're in your twenties and a Yankees fan, I'd ask you if you can name someone on the team from the early '90's that wasn't on any of the World Series teams. If you do, then you're a real Yankees fan (though I'm not implying that if you can't, you aren't).

The great Captain isn't so great:
Honestly, he knows a lot about them now. And so does the rest of America, or at least those who've been watching Baseball Tonight the last few days. Actually, it began over the weekend on FOX's pre-game show when Eric Karros encouraged people to Vote Matt Holliday! for the All-Star Game. Then yesterday, BT spent a good few minutes on the Rockies after recapping the game: Matt Holliday, Troy Tulowitzki, NL West race.
It's good to get some exposure.
