    • QUOTES (5)

      • Atlanta Starter John Smoltz: The Yankees are head and shoulders above. We don't deserve the blame, they deserve the credit.

      • New York Third Baseman Scott Brosius: Right now, I'm numb more than anything. We're feeling lot of things now, a lot of happiness, a lot of relief.

      • New York Starter Roger Clemens: I feel very blessed to be part of this team. It was wonderful to play with them. Tonight I felt what it was like to be a Yankee, for sure. I heard people talk about how I could be rattled and things like that. I don't get rattled. I put pressure on myself to rise to the occasion.

      • New York Manager Joe Torre: This club is so special. To do this is even better this year because we validated what we did last year and didn't rest on our laurels.

      • Play-By-Play Announcer Bob Costas: (calling the final out of the game) A pop in to left...the New York Yankees...World Champions. Team of the decade. Most successful franchise...of the century.
