Déjà vu all over again: The New York Yankees celebrate their 26th championship. AP
Yankees remain New York's finest
New millennium, same New York Yankees. Luis Sojo hit a two-out, tiebreaking single off Al Leiter in the ninth as the Yankees won their third straight World Series title and fourth in five years by beating the New York Mets 4-2 in Game 5. Derek Jeter earned MVP honors, along with his fourth ring at the age of 26. Jeter becomes the first player to claim World Series and All-Star Game MVPs in the same season.
