  • Hey, Ken! I'll be seeing you from the beginning of next season to the end. Yup, it'll start in the Bronx and end in Little Fenway!

    • I would like to elaborate on the growing Orioles-Devil Rays rivalry, in which the O's have proudly taken a one game lead in the all-time series!

      First, um...

      . . .

      oh, never mind.

      • There is little question that the Redsox-Yankee Rivalry has been in the past and is today a heated one. How many times have we all witnessed the RedSox failing down the stretch to their hated Rivals....the Bronx Bombers.


        That being said, the Brookyln-New York Battles were absolute "warfare". A battle not only for NL supremecy, but for borough bragging rites. Those battles often decided who won the NL in the late 40's thru the 50's. Records didn't matter, the Dodgers and the Giants didn't just want to win those games, they wanted to leave little doubt who the better team was.

        A student of the game may be forgiven for not knowing of this rivalry, but a student of baseball history cannot be for such a gross oversight.

        • ( Shaking Head ) . . .

          This has nothing to do with the baseball team on the field . . .
          - but, trying to squeeze a forfeit from MLB because the Devil Rays needed to stay home to protect their families during hurricane Frances was pretty low, then to demand reimbursement for the hot dogs & soda provided for the fans is as petty as you can get! - h

            • This is getting scarry . . .

              So far (8th inn) in the 3 game sweep of Oakland, we've outscored the A's 23-4 . . . -

              Pedro hasn't given up an earned run in his last 20 innings . . .

                      Um... unlike the Red Sox, the Yankees have the best starting pitcher in baseball right now.

                      Orlando "Say Hello to my Little Friend" Hernandez is absolutely gang busters right now... this seems like the kind of story Disney would make a movie about if anybody knew El Duque's real age.

                      You throw up Pedro, we throw up a junk baller who couldn't top 90 falling out of an airplane and who still strikes out more than a batter an inning... I'm happy with our chances.

                      Seriously... add up all the arm angles and speed changes, and I'm pretty sure El Duque's got at least 80 completely different pitches working for him right now. Good Luck!





                      although the rest of our rotation leaves something to be desired...

                      • The Yankees have El Duque. Really all I care about.

                        That 2.49 ERA is looking mighty nice right about now.



                        See you in October!

                          Go to the bottom of his game log and see his last 2 starts: 7.0 IP, 2 ER; 8.0 IP, 1 ER. Ace enuff fer ya?

                          http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/player...g?statsId=4715

                          Check out Lieber's last 2: 7.0, 0 ER; 6.2, 2 ER. Sounds like a few back-to-back consecutive starts to me.

                          http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/player...g?statsId=5235

                          You Yankee bashers need to realize that if the SP (which would be Lieber) gets lit up early, it strains the pen tremendously, both f/that game and other games. Rookie Halsey got lit up, then so did Vazquez. That's why Sturtze was needed in the prior game, then Loaiza of all people, was needed in the other game. Had Esteban been brought in before more damage was done, we might've had a fighting chance to win that game. However, I'll still give credit to the Orioles for winning it.

                          • We'll put Pedro out there, and you'll put out the Duke. Pedro's better, but just to make sure:
