  • I'm Curious....

    Why did the $$$Y's use batting practice pitcher Mr. Sid in a game?

    It would be an interesting exercise to take ERRods pay per game to calculate his pay per strikeout. Or per error.

    ER-Rods. ER-Rods. Suitable for heckling, you think?

        Question. According to William Shakespeare, is the outfield play of the Red Sox a:

        A.) History
        B.) Tragedy
        C.) Comedy










        Answer. Yes!
        Nah. Mr. Fitzgerald captured it better: "Show me a hero and I'll write you a tragedy."
        After 1957, it seemed like we would never laugh again. Of course, we did. Its just that we were never young again.

            That is F Scott, rather than Edmund, I presume?

            • Mattingly,

              I think it is time that some rules will imposed in this thread.

              1. (Especially Red Sox) fans are not allowed to mock Yankee fans or their favorite players (A-Rod, K-Rod, Pay-Rod or whatever they are called).

              2. Yankee fans are always right.

              3. When it MAY happen that Yankee fans are not right (very unlikely though), see rule number 2.

              If one of these rules will be violated, the fans will be "rewarded" with a Yankee fan brain washing (the same one I had)

                  Admitting the problem is the first step towards becoming healthy again. Good for you!

                    "They're both hitting off the wall when hitting 5th. That's it, I say Jeter is our new #3 hitter. I couldn't care less what he does as a #2 hitter, I say Derek Jeter is our new Ortiz. With a better shave, of course."

                    Hmmmmmmm, the Hahvahd dropout doth outthinketh herself, too! Tsk, tsk, tsk. Didya see the part about Giambi's and Rodriguez' offensive numbers soaring when they bat 5th?

                    Of course, even though it may be a much rarer occurrence, when Cap'n Intangibles smacks one outta there, he doesn't take his 15 minutes of fame to admire the HR and another 15 minutes circling the bases. It's a good thing that those 500 footers don't hit off the stuff on the roof anywhere. If so, then Manny would've booted it around the outfield and infield, then blocked a CF throw to the cutoff man, just like what he did with Damon and like what he did this weekend.
                    Discuss: Mattingly comparing any hitter on the $$'s with Ortiz. Possibilities: Not winning since last century has finally permeated Mattingly's brain. Torre's use of pitcher's has been, well, appreciated by the opposing manager.

                    I have a question of my own:why are managers pitching to Ortiz and Veron Wells? AHA! I know half of the answer! Ortiz might steal a base.
                    Don't be silly. We didn't give up the farm to get our guys. Besides, for what little you folks gave up for Schill in Hilly Billy, Fossum and some bag of chips, meanwhile they'd wanted Nicky Johnson and Soriano, I'd say that was an uneven offer. Still, we should've had him and Beckett instead. Y'all can have Ponson.

                      I bequeth upon thee a 12-game losing streak, in addition to a 12-game Yankee winning streak.

                      Also, Toronto will win 4 games, lose 8 games and Baltimore will go on a tear.

                      Now then, that should help things out a bit. Oh, and we know you'll be hiding. Don't bother to explain. Heck, I'll even feed and walk the dog for you, let you know when it's safe to peek in.

                        I simply cannnot take a biscuit seriously. A biscuit assistant wanna be dictator? Are you a stew dumpling? A popover filled with lobster salad? A pastry eclair?

                        No, gotta be one in a can of frozen rolls, still in the freezer, getting freezer burn, waiting to be cooked. You will be burnt in a casserole when a Yfan is crying in October.

                        Or perhaps you will be thrown, as Errod makes the error that mathmatically....be a brave biscuit.

                          Mattingly has posted rules before. I guess biscuits have short memories. Maybe the standings should be posted again. Regular, or WC, doesn't matter. I wonder if Ken can add a clip of Sweet Caroline to the standings.

                            I know Matt has posted rules before. You can think of it as a reminder. Maybe as a law. Law changes too once in a while.

                            I think you get a bit too personal about the biscuit thing... This nickname could be the Red Sox' , 'cause they are a bunch of cookies.

                            But who would like a bean flavoured cookie? Must taste disgusting with the tea parties you guys have once in a while.
