Q: Alex, do you find it odd that for the first time in a long time you're not the favorite to win the World Series?
A: All the teams that are in the postseason are very capable of winning a world championship. We have tremendous parity in our game today, more so than I have seen . . . So that's great for our game. . . .I mean, for us to be David in this situation I think is great. The Yankees are always going to be somewhat favorites because we're the Yankees and that comes with the territory. It is something that we embrace and we like. But they want to call us underdogs, we'll take that role."
