    • Mattingly,

      Before you get too carried away with avs and sigs, remember that we're throwing Lieber, Sturtze, and Contreras out on the mound... not exactly our best guys.

      Matter of fact, in the playoffs, only one of those guys (probably COntreras) will be getting any starts... and he's gotten shelled by the Sox before.

      I'm hopeful... but I'd be more hopeful if it was Vazquez, El Duque, and Moose.

      • So the matchups are Lieber-Schilling (Boston wins), Arroyo-Sturtze (Boston wins), Lowe-Contreras (I'm hopeful).

        Then again, I thought Boston had the matchups in two of three for the last series... and we swept.

        I'm just hoping for the triumphant return of the Derek Lowe Face.

          Avs & Sigs for 1 week. Only the regular sigs we both use are allowed. Av is up to the winner. Sweep = 2 weeks.

          • EH, we'll win on Sat/Sun. Tonite (Fri), we'll very likely lose. Hopefully not by 8-2 or something crazy.

            We should've had El Duque in this weekend. I'll still support my guys and take my chances.



            Hiya, Ken! :gt

              • Wow. So you guys get three home runs from Kevin Millar, our bullpen disintegrates, Jeter and Giambi pull 0-fers... and you STILL lose?

                Good luck with that Wild Card!



                Hey, at least you got this... only 3 players have ever hit 3 home runs in a Red Sox/ Yankees game. Kevin Millar, Mo Vaughn, and Lou Gehrig. So that's something.

                • Oh, and one other thing...

                  If the playoffs started today... the Red Sox wouldn't be in them... the Yanks would be playing the White Sox in the first round, while the Rangers would grapel with the Twins.



                  Aww... sad panda.

                  • How bout the White Sox being in first place in the AL wild card. I never expected that before the season.

                      • You know, I think that it's a shame that this series doesn't feature a matchup of both teams' aces... which would be Pedro vs. (absolutely incredibly) El Duque. I think that'd be a thing to see.

                        As it is... The guys on SoSH are all saying that their Yankee fan friends aren't even ribbing them any more, that now it's just pity they see from YankeeNation... I guess that's about right. I'm actually not going to watch the next two games... there's not too much of a point.

                          The White Sox would be the AL Central's first ever Wild Card representative. The AL Central is the only division never to have earned a WC.

                              Do you realize that our #5 pitcher, Jon Lieber has just outpitched your desired ace, Curt Schilling, who was traded for so he could beat the Yanks? Despite efforts to the contrary, he's not the Yankee-killer so claimed, since Clemens was up 2-1 in that game 7 when both left.

                              Still, I'll pedal. Just make sure you try catching up sometime soon. I'll have lunch and hope you catch up by then.

                                There never has been, nor will there ever be, anything known as "YankeeNation", regardless of one word or two. There is "Red Sox Nation" and there are "Yankee fans".

                                We don't need our ace, since Moose and Brown are both out. I'd pick Contreras or Hernandez right now, but I do remember Theo talking about how Wake had beaten Moose, w/some "our #4 beat your ace" comment. I see the scenario has been reversed.

                                Ken, how do ya like *THEM* Big Apples?
