    And more importanly than 10-9 was 4-3 in October... or should I say 6-5 in 11 innings?
    If Boston wins tomorrow, which I doubt, I predict that they'll show up in droves. I wasn't working yesterday, so I enjoyed some rare time outside and away from both home and work. I stopped by a local place to see the game.

    Ken needs to have better examples. One little game doesn't a season make.

    • If anyone wishes to discuss the differences or similarities between the BoSox-Yankee rivalry to the Brooklyn Dodger-NY Giants' rivalry, please see this thread in the Brooklyn forum.

      Thanks.

          Oh and Ken, can you remind me of what happened in the last two games of that July 4th series last year? I seem to remember leaving with some Pride after those games.
          Again, I can't seem to . . . - :noidea

          I'm coming up blank on this one. -

            But what a *GRAND* moment it was.

            • Well, now that Mike Mussina's turned into David Cone circa 2000, we're in for an interesting season. Here's hoping Francona leaves Pedro in for 9 full innings on Sunday, even though he starts getting shelled in the seventh!

                Hopefully Francona learned a lesson tonight.

                • - Thank God for Soriano. I noticed he's your only guy that's hitting with authority this year.


                  {Oh, that's right.
                  Didn't you guys trade him for . . . (Opps) Never mind.}

                    Ah yes. Our only guy hitting with authority.

                    Oh, except, that is, for Jorge Posada. Who is currently leading the AL in HR and RBI, and is hitting .314 with a .410 OBP, .804 SLG, and 1.214 OPS. Hm. He's second in the league in TB's and XBH, and first in isolated power.

                    Oh, and he's a catcher.

                    See you this weekend

                    I'll be the guy in the right field seats with the big smile on my face when Pedro realizes his 88 mph fastball doesn't work against the Yanks.

                      I stand corrected...With so few NY hitters hitting their weight, I'm surprised Jorge's numbers didn't stand out more!

                      But seriously, he's having an incredible start . . .

                      • Hey, when Jeter and ARod are both hitting under .210, I take pleasure in small favors.... and Jorge putting up a 1.200+ OPS is a bit more than a small favor.

                        And so for this weekend...

                        GOOD LUCK RED SOX! GOOD LUCK YANKEES! LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

                          This isn't the first time that Terry has left a pitcher in too long. I've seen it a few other times (ie, Lowe's last outing). Hopefully, he doesn't come to his senses until Monday.

                          Anyway ...

                          • Doesn't anyone want to talk about the big Reds-Pirates series coming up this weekend? Paul Wilson v. Kip Wells, it's enough to make you forget about Boston-NY, eh? (just kidding, just want to keep the Bos-NY thing in perspective, they are just two out of the thirty teams you know, plus, the Reds are 9-6, the Pirates 7-7, the BoSox 9-6, Yanks 8-8, same difference right?!?)

                            (By the way, something deep inside tells me that only one of those two teams are going to the playoffs. There's been too much buildup to this season, it's really bad baseball karma, (just like the Phillies.))

                              improbus, I'd like a few good reasons to interest me in a Reds-Pirates series. I generally wouldn't watch them, but am open to nice ideas as to why this would be a worthy rivalry.

                                They played an amazing 6 game series in 1990, between the Barry Bonds/Bobby Bonilla team and the Barry Larkin/Eric Davis lead squad, and they squared off in the 1970, '72, '75, and '79 NLCS (as well as '90, which makes up 17% of all the NLCS ever, and I think that the most any two other NL teams met is twice) So they actually have quite an exstensive history. Unfortunately, most of that is ancient history, but they have played each other (including spring training) 11 times this year already. It's going to be a battle between the Reds bats (Dunn 7 HR .364, Casey .423, and Griffey, who's not hurt yet) against a good young Pirates staff (Wells 2-1 1.89 ERA, Perez 1-0 3.09 ERA, and Kris Benson 2-0, 2.00 ERA. Jack Wilson is fabulous defensively, while Adam Dunn is a disaster (but entertaining,) and it will be played in beautiful PNC Park (rated by ESPN as the top ballpark in the game.) That's about the best I can do for now.
