    Its called a JOKE.

      LONG LIVE THE A-ROD CURSE!!!

      2004: Red Sox try to trade for him, doesn't work out - Yanks end up getting him

      Late 2004: The Yankees win the first 3 games of the ALCS, but then the Red Sox stage the greatest comeback in sports history (or was is the biggest choke in sports history?), and alex bats .258. Then the Red Sox go on to win the World Series.

      2005: The Yankees, although heavily favored, lose to the Angels in the first round, A-Rod bats .133.

      2006: The Yankees are heavily favored again, and even after over-paying for the ex-Red Sox centerfielder, the "best offensive lineup ever" gets shut out for over 20 innings, and A-Rod bats .071.

      We are so lucky this never happened...

        2001: Diamondbacks

        2002: Angels

            Opening day Rookie battery that nearly no-hit the Yanks, on their way to the Impossible Dream?

              Wasn't opening day..at least not at Fenway, but in Rohr's first ML start, 8 2/3 of no hit ball.

              Yaz's catch.

              But who broke it up?

                It was Opening Day in Yankee stadium. Elston Howard got the hit.

                    • That's it, Yankees fans. One more time you pick on Boston and we'll show the misfortune of a World Series the Yankees *gasp* lost, from 2001! Hiya, Yankees fans, and here comes the 2001 World Series champions, the Arizona Diamondbacks.



                      Curt Schilling will always be there to haunt the Yankees, when he's healthy and on his game. Which National League team beat some team ran by owner George $teinbrenner? Hint: they lost another World Series in 2003, and also was eliminated in the ALDS in the following years: 2002, 2005 and now 2006? Here comes a Fishy team to chronicle the Bronx Bombers' World Series choke. Hang them in, Yankees fans: Marlins are the 2003 WS champions!



                      Okay, that's enough kidding around for now.

                      • I would just like to send my regards to The Lidle family, and Yankee fans during this tragic time. This is one of those times when the rivalry cesses to matter, for baseball lost a friend today. Rest in peace, Mr Lidle.

                          To this day, it is still THE best,
                          (over-the-shoulder, full-speed dive, somersault catch) I've ever seen . . .

                              He played an incredible left-field.

                              Great glove, arm, bat and intelligence . . .

                                He was The Man when I was growing up. Anybody remember who the Yankee LF was back then?

                                Here's the box score http://retrosheet.org/boxesetc/B04140NYA1967.htm

                                You;ll note that besides Elston Howard, former and future Sox players were on the OTHER SIDE that game...

                                Yes, Yaz was The Man...
