    It didn't happen. Who beat Beantown in Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS? Which other NY team beat Bahstunned in Games 6 & 7 of the 1986 WS?

    They happened.

      3.Marino isin't clutch.
      4.Big Papi is.
      5. Curses don't exist.
      Shall I go on?
      Dude, you can't even get your photos right. That's a pic of then Mets manager, Bobby Valentine around 2002. The ump ejected him, so he snuck back onto the dugout wearing a Groucho mask, so he had to pay a fine, as he was supposed to be in the clubhouse. Doggonit, even Bubba Gump, Grady Little would laugh at ya!

      #6 would be that we let you folks win. Here's to another 86 years of the loserboyz and losergirlz taking it hard for their team.

      Yanks will have NY champagne. The Beantowners will have have the Mass whine! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

      You only go around once, and the Sawx have already used up their quota of having been around.

          Ages ago? In 2005, the Red Sawx got swept in the ALDS. At least we won 2 games.

          Now then, please mark your calendars, and look gleefully ahead, as 2090 isn't really that far away. Smile, you're on Nitwit Camera!

          When your team is toasted, and you're being roasted. You're on Nitwit Camera!

          Sing along, chil-dren. And celebrate those Invincible Noo Yawk Yan-keez, who'll win #27 this season!

          I hereby dedicate the 27th Yankee WS ring to you, my friend.

          BTW, where's the pix of the 1918 Sawx team celebrating? Oh yeah, cameras were scarce back then. So were parades and chowda. I'll bet golf courses weren't the following year in New England.

                  Might I say that an embarrassing THIRD PLACE FINISH really doesn't guarantee a really good draft pick. Also, who's gonna be your closer now that Bon-Bon's in the rotation? Keith Foulke or Craig Hansen? Since you seem a little short on closers, prehaps a FA signing? Oh wait! Who in their right mind would go to a third place team? And what about Barry Zito? Why would he even consider signing with the Sox? [/URL]
                  Gee, didn't Burnett and BJ Ryan go to the Jays last season? Weren't the Jays in THIRD PLACE the season before that?? Weren't they amongst the cream of that free agent crop?
                  Free agents go where the MONEY is...SHOW ME THE MONEY is what they say...a Yanks fan knows that more than anybody!!
                  PS - I don't think that Papelbon gets to decide if he starts or closes, don't consider any comments from him on that to be final. Sometimes, top closers clearly are not CAPABLE of being starters...like a certain Mr. Rivera...
                  PPS - I expect to see some pretty anxious faces in a visiting dugout in Detroit tonight when they start falling behind...terrified of the wrath of THE BOSS!!!

                  • Epstein said Papelbon would be a starter.

                    • From now on, no more Beantowners. You must be a Yankee fan or a Blue Jays fan in order to post here.
                      Dang. What about fans of teams not in the AL East?

                      • There are divisions outside of the AL East?

                        • A fun l;ittle fact for Boston fans and obnoxious Marlins fans:

                          The Yankees have more WS Championships than most teams have division titles.

                              86 years of losing beats that any day. Generations of Sawx fantasizers grew up knowing that a WS would ever be played and won in Beantown. Which other team that contended could say this?

                              What's the new motto in Beantown?
