    • Has anyone else noticed that a certain
      m e m b e r has not been putting his {av & sig} where his mouth is of late?

      I'm sorry, that is not true. He has backed his team when they lock horns with the mighty Tigers from Detroit.

      Could it be possible that his un-wavering support & confidence in his extended family from the Bronx is buckeling from the heat they're feeling from the north that just won't seem to go away like it usually does in Septembers' past? Maybe he's sensing impending doom for the New York 'band-wagon' and wants to avoid the rush and jump off now while saying to himself . . . 'see-ya' as he un-characteristically slips, (yet again) into the glory & shadows of seasons' past...

          Who are you referring to? I presume either YM, BC498 or myself. So, who is it?

          Don't worry, Ken, you've just won yourselves the golden opportunity to take 1 out of 3 from the Yanks yesterday. Andy clearly didn't have it, and that's all you'll get. Roger will get #307 today.

Now we'll have to see what *our* Roger Clemens has tonight, and what Tim Wakefield does.

            Don't worry, it's all good, all in fun. Now if I were being evil, I'd just mention that Posada had 2 jacks, 3 RBI while Varitek was 0 for 4, and that the quartet of Nick Johnson, Enrique Wilson, Jorge Posada and Derek Jeter did some damage yesterday. However, I'm not evil, so in celebration of Saturday afternoon:

            Pettitte earns 17th victory, ties AL leaders

            BOSTON (AP) -- Nick Johnson and Jorge Posada wouldn't let the New York Yankees' bullpen give the game away.

            That's why Andy Pettitte came away with a win and Pedro Martinez didn't.

            Pettitte outlasted the fatigued Red Sox ace Saturday and led the Yankees to a 10-7 victory over Boston, surviving early trouble to move into a tie for the league lead with his 17th win. New York extended its lead in the AL East to 4{ games.

            "This could be the biggest game of the year," Yankees manager Joe Torre said.

            <snip>

            Pettitte (17-7) outpitches Pedro as Yanks survive 10-7

            BOSTON -- Nick Johnson and Jorge Posada wouldn't let the New York Yankees' bullpen give the game away.

            That's why Andy Pettitte came away with a win and Pedro Martinez didn't.

              You mean the same ones we've been hearing since 1923? I guess we'll still be hearing them at the end of the season. I'm sure that Seattle and Oakland will also. Boy, you guys look so good in the rear view mirror!

              BTW, that's one tall sig you've got. How come so much blank space? It's like the entire screen is taken up for a one line response.

                  I decided against ALL betting on baseball a few months ago.

                  However, I gave Racosun a re-match based on a "gentlemen's agreement." But you wouldn't know anything about that...


                  But if it's a wager you want:

                  I'll bet you that the Yankees win the World Series before the
                  Red Sox do. Loser has to wear the winner's sig (unaltered with no text added) and team avatar for as long as the winner's team are the World Champions.

                    I guess they want to see you strip a few of your (pin)stripes off your shoulder. That would be too symbolic for them.

                    Hey, I'll always give Raco his due. Great guy.

                    For the bet that the Yanks will win before they will, that's too easy, and they'd never agree. Of course, a certain member (Ken) could always take that bet, but he'd never do that. I mean, just think, "NO, NO NANETTE" screaming from every post he'd make. Nah, he'd never go for it. You'd really need to believe in your team to do that. Right, Ken?

                      Not really, actually it got worse 11-0 BoSox, looks like we'll see Mattingly in the Red Sox avator.

                        Yes, I see you follow our losses closely. Man, we've gotta start winning some more. Today's game was awful.
