  • What a beautiful day!
    Satchel and Kramer make the puppy to dog transition (happy first birthday, girls!), and the Sox lay some serious wood to the Yankee$!

        De nada. Now if only the Yanks had been as inspired as you guys were. All that stuff about Terry not managing, yet he's the one using pinch runners, changing pitchers, going for the kill.

        Enjoy your victory, Ken, but Torre's on my nerves right now.

        • I don't blame Joe. I blame the wall-puncher first and foremost.

          Three Bronx Cheers for Kevin Brown!

          Congratulations Red Sox.

            Congratulations Red Sox.
            Brown was a 1- or 2-inning pitcher who could've done that successfully, had he pitched around Ortiz.

            I respect you very much, but you can either blame the person who makes a mess, or you can blame the person who's seen his last game, and still puts him in a position to create that mess in the first place.

            Vazquez, Loaiza, Sturtze and El Duque were available. Between them, they surely could've done 8 innings.

            In Game 7, just play tag-team, and who cares who can or can't go 5 innings. No law saying the SP has to get the win. Just get the win and don't be fussy whether it's your closer, mid-reliever or batboy who gets the win. Just win the game. Brown wasn't the right guy.

            I'm just crabby tonight, so please forgive me. I'm just restraining myself due to a poorly-managed game. Oh well, have to see if Sweet Lou still hates George.

              I don't know how I'll be able to deal with the humilation. We're down 2-0 in the second, but it feels like 10-0. This thing is over... and I'm pretty sure, so is my career as a baseball fan. There's losses, and then there's losses. I don't think losing a 3-0 series lead is the kind of thing I could recover from.
              Do you really think I believe you are never gonna watch a baseball game.

              I think you are as crazy about baseball as I am.

              Now they have advanced to the WS, I just gonna watch it (it the Dutch TV will broadcast it...) and root for the SOX.


              CONGRATULATIONS RED SOX FANS!!! Great feat.!!!

                Heaven forbid the Yankees don't make the world series for the third time in the last eight years

                  I know this bet will count from the moment the Sox win the World Series. But I really think they are gonna make it.

                  And actually I hope they do.

                  Probably other Yankee fans will think I'm not a real Yankee fan.

                    First, I appreciate your support.
                    Second, you're more than welcome to show your support by wearing my Sox avatar or a Red Sox signature now, during the World Series . . .

                    • What's going to decide it?

                      Ok. What's going to be the deciding factor that will be the difference between these two teams? For me, I think the tremendous offense of both teams cancel out each other. I think Boston's starters, especially Schilling and Martinez, will be the difference. St. Louis, although pretty solid, doesn't seem to have an ace/stopper. I really didn't follow their pitchers as much as their hitters during the year. Am I on target here or am I missing something?

                      • You're not missing anything - their pitching is not big-name but has been getting it done quietly. The offense is so powerful it overshadows the pitching.

                        I'm pulling for Boston this year, but every time I've seen Pedro pitch I get the same uneasy feeling I do when the Mets go to the bullpen. It's like the game is suddenly up for grabs. But then, I've really only seen Pedro against the Yankees.
                        There's no crying in baseball.

                          I think that could be because the two teams have faced each other (57) so much in the last two seasons alone. The Yankees know Pedros' pitching intimately, a luxury the Cardinals don't/won't enjoy . . .

                          • Where would this be applicable?
                            In the last two days I've come to realize that there's something glaringly missing from the the Baseball-Fever forum web-site . . . :noidea

                            Would anyone know of a web-site that would have a 'smilie' signifying 'Choking'?
                            Any ideas . . . Matt? -

                              New York Gov. George Pataki, left, dons a Boston Red Sox jersey to settle a bet with Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, right, at a hotel in New York Friday, Oct. 22, 2004. Because the New York Yankees lost to the Boston Red Sox in the American League Championship Series, Pataki agreed to wear the jersey to a public function.

                                Oh geez, did I use the word "choke" to you guys before? I'm not even sure what I'd written.
