It is probably not wise to “exhume” the ghost of QuGorMo, but the trio of Joba, Soriano and Rivera really could be the difference for this Yankees team. We saw it in 1996 when Rivera took the 7th and 8th by himself before handing it over to Wetteland and we saw it for most of 2004 before Joe Torre destroyed Paul Quantrill and Tom Gordon’s arms in the first half of the year.

That’s one thing that Joe Girardi won’t do. Joe does not abuse his relievers and it means we have some nights ahead of us when JoSorMo will be unavailable. But, four games in, it’s nice to dream about seeing them deployed in a playoff game.
