    Hey, if it weren't fer BBF, I'd be ... even worse off. Oh well, thank goodness I'm not a Beantowner.

    Of course, it's in our genes.

    A few Yankee losses? The more to tease you folks into believing you could actually win the division.

    2004? Hey, it was about time. Now you're a real club, not the perennial loserboys. Just think, you folks have no graduated from loserboys and losergirls to ... well, about the same, but with a cheesy win thrown in.

    Now then, please repeat after me:

    Jeter's better.

    Mariano's better.

    A-Rod's better.

    Posada's better.

    Judas Demon's better.

    Giambi's better.

    Memorize this very shortly.

      It helps keep their minds off their other sports teams. Is Billy Smith still the goalie for the Islanders?

        • "How many times can they go to the well?"
          What can you say about this man? I've never seen a player who continually rises to the occasion and delivers at the crucial point of a game as David Ortiz. He is Superman to the Red Sox. Time after time late in the game, when they need a hit (usually a home run) to tie or to win, he feeds off the pressure and steps up to the plate and answers the call. He is to the Red Sox what Larry Bird was to the Celtics, Bobby Orr was to the Bruins and what Tom Brady still is to the Patriots.

          Ortiz got cheered at home for his walk-off home run, a dramatic play that fans and teammates are getting used to. He's now done it seven times in the regular season.

          "It's almost expected of him now", Papelbon said. "He's clutch, man. He's money."

          After he reached home on Saturday, his teammates "were kind of looking at me like a whole bunch of 10 year olds like, `you're amazing,' ' Ortiz said.

            I must say, Papelon was pretty good today, too -- getting into and then out of trouble, without losing his cool, was pretty impressive.

              I won't say.

              Now then, I believe we still have rights to Kevin Brown. Please send us David Ortiz in return. Oh, and Manny can be our alternate DH or LF (which suits him perfectly), and pay all of his salary.

              Just think, had the Yanks selected Manny instead of Brien Taylor, and if Cashman had taken Ortiz when we had the chance.

                You're absolutely right.
                I think he'd succeed even more as a starter . . .
                but only after we secure a top notch closer to replace him . . .

                      Keyword there:s*cked as in past tense .Ive seen a few shirts being sold around Fenway that I probabily shouldn't repeat here.

                        Hey, at least we all knew it; too bad you guys didn't all these years. Hey, Babe's Ghost can rest now, finally. Still, he's done us good.

                        As to the infamous ones featuring our 3Bman and SS, I'd rather they not be repeated here. There are a few anti-Yankee sites out there, and even a Red Sox bar in the Bronx of all places (some Yankee fan waiter got fired because he was a Yankee fan), so nothing's new.

                        Now then, are you Beantowners still obsessed with the Sawx? Guess who we're playing? Hanley Ramirez. Or should I say, Han-Man, to you folks. I hope he has 4 hits, never gets driven in once and the Fish lose.

                        Now then, please tell Wily Mo Pena and Mike Lowell from which team they'd originally come from.

                          Well that would be no good, we wouldn't want Johnny Damon being afraid of his throws being cutoff from left field now we would we?

                          And I'll finally admit it. David Ortiz is a fairly decent baseball player.

                            If we had Manny, we could've used him as our DH. If in LF (where his mind often tends to wander), we'd never have Matsui. Well, right now, no Matsui anyway. :o

                            Anyway, here's the real stuff.

                            Friends, Romans, countrymen and Yankee fans. On this anointed day, the Bahstunned Beantowners will get trumped in *THEIR HOUSE* by Mookie and friends. This being the 20th anniversary of Billy Buck's E3, Yankee fans will be celebrating one of the most famous Yankee moments that didn't even involve a Yankee. However, it did involve Babe Ruth.

                            I hereby wholeheartedly offer my support to our crosstown team, whom I do hope go on a tirade. Oh, and Wednesday's game with Pedro should be especially fun. :gt
