    What do the following have in common?
    a) World Peace

    c) Red Sox winning the series

    I won't see any of them in my lifetime.

    Oh, we'll all be here, Ken. Too bad you won't be; you'll be picking up Pedro's arm off the floor after it's finally fallen off (and won't get back up again, either).

    Too bad that guy trying to make the #5 spot in Minnesota's rotation roughed him up the other day. I guess the toothless Pedro-lion hath struck again.

    Pedro got smacked around by a pitcher *TRYING* for the #5 spot of an AL Central contender. On the very same day, Kevin Brown, who's had his own shares of injuries, defeats the Phillies 9-zippo.

    Say Sayonarra, Baby, it's 2001 all over again!

    Don't let your neck crane too much when Homer Bush goes yard, does you guys in (as expected). Likely in September, then it's all downhill from there.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again:

    Pedro > Mussina
    Schilling > Brown

    Vazquez > Lowe
    Contreras > Wakefield

    Kim > Uh... Donovan Osbourne?

    Rivera/Gordon/Quantrill > Foulke, Timlin, Embree

    At this point, I'm calling the pitching staffs a wash. We'll see how things progress over the course of the season.

    For me, it's easy. I hate- no that's not strong enough- I LOATHE the Yankees. My favorite website is www.yanks-suck.com. They give you pages of reasons to hate them and their retarded fans.

    tdk1984, welcome aboard. However, I'm not too crazy about any anti-[team goes here] sites. There are anti-Boston sites also, but I've never posted those.

    Yes, it's the rivalry thread, but we still talk baseball.

    Thanks in advance and appreciated.

    I could dig one up and PM you, if you'd like, but for newbies, I like peace and quiet, plus lots of baseball talk. Look at how well RedSox Rules posts, as an example.

    Look at the great posters on the Brooklyn Dodger thread. That's what I like. Gotta run.

    To me, "bitter" only indicates that someone has taken it personally and has gotten out of hand. So long as there's no beanbrawl, we should be OK.

    I'm more interested in seeing what you guys do, and what we do. All the personal stuff is for the tabloids and the easily excited, IMO. I just wanna see good ballgames.

    I'm going to let that link stand for now, but please make yourself a good poster. Whichever team(s) you're a fan of, they're represented here. We've also got people who love the Yanks and those who couldn't care the least for them, to put it nicely. Trust me on this, you'll get far greater respect and be around here far longer if you have something positive to say.

    Regardless of which team(s) a fan supports, if they can talk baseball in general, or history, trades, informed opinions about rules or anything else, they'll get more respect that way.

    I'll simply inform you that while this isn't a pro-Yankee website, this also isn't an anti-Yankee website, so please just deal civilly and nicely here, since I consider this a community of which there are many family members.

    If you are a good baseball fan, good citizen here, please feel free to state the team(s) you root for, and set up an introduction in this forum, explaining your views on the game, its history, what you like, don't like. Be it the DH, Interleague, 162 games instead of 154, blocking the plate, triples, saves or anything else related to this great game we all love.

    Many thanks in advance for posting in a civil manner acceptable to many!

    To me, people are here to talk baseball. You can't just smack talk about a team all day. Heck, you can lay a little smack in here, but at least let the theme be baseball, not smack.

    I guess we differ. Lots of people here who can't stand the Yanks, but if they can at least talk a good game, I'm happy.

    Still, I don't want anybody here thinking they can just talk too much about how they hate one team and feel I won't notice. The newbies are the ones I keep my evil eye on the most.

    Anyway, Ken, isn't it way past your bedtime about now? Or were you waiting up to see the Yanks win on OD? Either case, I think I just heard the Missus say to get some shut-eye.

    It's all Ken's fault that the Yanks were beaten on OD by the Basement Bertha D-Rays. How else could this have happened?

    BTW, it's "lose", not "loose". Capice?

    It's raining, it's snowing, your old man is snoring. Crazy things we said as kids.

    But will they still be dancing in October in Chowdaville, USA?

    Sorry if I offended anyone but this is the Bitter Rivals Thread. I know that there are Yankee fans here so I'll try to offend them as little as possible. After all, my only beef is really with Georgie because he seems to have a bottomless pit of $ to pursue the best free agents every year. That's all. After all, no one is perfect. I'm a BoSox fan (but have been a Brooklyn Dodger fan longer), and look at what our groundscrew did prior to game 7 of last year's ALCS: they put the World Series logo on the field for cryin' out loud! Then look what happened.

    Yes, I realize this is the Bitter Rivalry thread. Ken has been very involved, as have just about every fan of every team if you read the last few dozen pages. However, we prefer to use witty replies, rather than smack. I'm not saying you do, but since you're new here, I had no choice but to be cautious.

    Still, if you'd like to introduce yourself here, letting people know about you and your baseball viewpoints, please feel free to do so. I actively encourage people who are passionate and knowledgeable about the game to do so. That way, the more good people around, the better, and people can use that thread as a reference point as to what your overall style of posting will likely be. Please see the following example:

    Introductions

    As to Yankee fans, yes, we'll get a big share of criticism, moreso than most, but regardless of the team, I think it helps to remain positive towards all, even if you're not crazy about George.

    There are many forums here, including a Boston forum under "American League", and Brooklyn, under "Teams of Yesteryear". Both are excellent places to post, so please enjoy your stay.

    Thanks.

    Don't forget to have the "World Series 2004" signs up at lil Fenway, just like last winter, and make sure all the AP photogs capture this nice & bright, crystal clear.

    Hey, Curt's already dissed the Babe by saying he'd be ordinary right now. Yeah, why doesn't he just tell him to come out of the grave so he can drill him up the keester, just like Pedro did?

    Not to worry . . .

    You'll have either 3 or 4 games to see that up close & personal at "'lil Fenway"!
