      Between him and that #13, I've wondered about that guy. He got it from Miami QB Dan Marino. Yet the Marlins' Pro Player Stadium is on Dan Marino Blvd.

      Seattle got Ichiro, which nobody mentions. Texas couldn't afford him. It was like Tom Hicks thought he was dating Marily Monroe or somebody.

      He can hit, he's pretty good with the glove, he can run. He should be fine. If he comes across someone wearing cornrows the next time, he should just let him tag him out.

        Hey Matt,

        What was the NY press and fan opinion on A-Rod regarding the ALCS collapse?

          Not very good. An inability to win one single game, given 4 chances, is absolutely atrocious. You've got Shaughnessy; we've got Lupica (NY Daily News).

          I pretty much avoided the NY press that week.

          I'm still wondering if Shaughnessy has a job, now that he can't talk about an inability to get it done.

            A little bit of history here.......OUR Ralph Branca wore #13 prior to THAT October 3, 1951 playoff game (you know, the Giants and that Bobby Thomson guy). Well, after THAT horrific experience, Ralph got rid of his #13 and wore #12 for the remainder of the time he was with OUR DODGERS! It didn't change a thing....but, with all the "bad luck" attached to #13 it is a wonder than ANY ML player wears it, considering how superstitious they ALL are.

            • Lance Parrish wore it for the Tigers and he did ok. I guess some take it as a challenge.

                We will never conceivably reach our 26th championship before the year 3018!
                We were lucky!
                It didn't happen!
                The Yankee fans are losing track of their championships! Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't you have 26 already??

                Can't blame you, though. I might lose count, too.

                    #13 is a pretty strange number. Jim Leyritz wore this in 1996 and hit a game-tying HR in the WS against Atlanta. I obviously never hurt him, since my fellow Yankee fans all remember this (even the ones just 19 or or years old).

                    Alex couldn't wear his old number--#3--since you-know-who has it retired in his name. Yet Edgar Renteria, who made the last out in the WS wore--you guessed it--not, #13, but #3. That's a head-scratcher, if you ask me! (but don't tell Ken)

                    If I were Ralph Branca, after that most unfortunate event linking the two similarly to Mookie and Buckner 35 years later, I'd have changed my number also. Ballplayers are said to be highly superstitious, like the fans, so that doesn't surprise me.

                    Thanks for the history lesson, Deb! Anyway, how do you like my byoodeeful new av?!

                      You do, of course know, that Ken and I do this all the time, correct? Cheesy zings are a staple here, my friend!

                        Geez, and it's not even 2018 yet. Oh well, what can I say?

                          As if watching the Red Sox win the World Series on TV wasn't bad enough, the Yankees will have to watch their rivals raise their World Series flag next April in person.

                          As first reported by the Daily News' Bill Madden during the ALDS, the Yanks will travel to Boston for the Red Sox's home opener on April 12. [/url]
                          Hmmm...............maybe George will be able to convince Bud to reverse the decision and let them go back to Japan for the season opener

                          By the way - I am enjoying this thread even more since the WS - way to go KenFourgere and other Sox fans......enjoy your moment. It won't be the last either.

                          No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference. ~Tommy Lasorda

                            Yankees open in Japan in 2005?

                            NO WAY! They have a date in Boston.

                            *BTW, I understand Jeter has requested that he be one to raise the Red Sox World Series Championship Flag and pass out some jewelry at Fenway Park on opening day . . .

                              Pssssssssssssssst! Please remind Ken and the other Bahstunned types that he can say "THIS IS OUR YEAR!" in 2090. Should be fun. Knowing me, I'll probably sneak in a "1918" somewhere there, homer that I am.

                                I'm not so sure about that Japan thing. Players were tired afterwards. Besides, no more Ricoh ads on the armsleeves for me!
