            I know..and for some reason, it wouldn't let me delete one of them.

            Rico in pinstripes? Perish the thought!

            Quote me on this. When they eventually hang #6 over the RF stands for Pesky, they'll also be doing it for Rico!

            Feel free to steal it...hell, I stole it from another site

            Heck..steal this one too...

              Yeah, must be those playoffs.
              Not strange of course, when you finish THIRD in the AL East, eleven games behind the AL East CHAMPIONS...
              Yeah Biscuit, you guys really represented the East well this year. You guys are turning into the Buffalo Bills of MLB-- no wait, that's not right those BBs actually made it to the championship game!

              • How did this thread become the Rico Petrocelli Fan Club? And finishing third is still nothing to brag about. At least we reached the playoffs. If the positions were reversed, you would be warbling a different tune.

                    The Jills--oops--Bills made it to the SB three times and chokes, the Yankmes made it to the WS only twice. Seems they got "snake-bit" in 2001 and it seemd "fishy" in 2003...

                      Hey..not our fault you let Rico get away from under your noses. I mean, he's a Brooklyn kid and he signed with us. You guys had the hometown advantage, But then again, there's a guy from Long Island...heard he was a Yankee fan as a kid. Now who was he again? Oh, yeah...

                        Biggest disappointments? Sure. That MUST be the Red Sox. Didn't almost everyone tip them as the successors of the Yankees as AL East Champs? We all know how that ended. Seems quite a disappointment to me...

                        • I remember the ol' Redhead...

                          September 22, 1966, the White Sox defeat the Yankees 4-1 in front of 413 fans, and 66,587 empty seats in the Bronx. Red Barber was fired for telling the radio and TV audiences about this, and urging the cameras to pan the all but vacant Yankee Stadium. Let's look at how things went after that:

                          1966..........Yankees 70-89 10th Red Sox 72-90 9th
                          1967..........Yankees 72-90 9th Red Sox 92-70 1st
                          1968..........Yankees 83-79 5th Red Sox 86-76 4th
                          1969..........Yankees 80-81 5th Red Sox 87-75 3rd
                          1970..........Red Sox 87-75 3rd Yankees 93-69 2nd
                          1971..........Yankees 82-80 4th Red Sox 85-77 3rd
                          1972..........Yankees 79-76 4th Red Sox 85-70 2nd
                          1973..........Yankees 80-82 4th Red Sox 89-73 2nd
                          1974..........Red Sox 84-78 3rd Yankees 89-73 2nd
                          1975..........Yankees 83-77 3rd Red Sox 95-65 1st


                          How's that for a decade, M'Row?

                            Pretty darn poor. Are you sure you want me to post anoter decade? How about you pick it and I'll post it. O.K.?
                            How about the '90s? Everyone remember's those.

                              Sure, but only the first 5 years of it.

                                I think we ALL know how much winning the division means. Squat. Where are the yankees now?

                                Where were the yankees last year?

                                What about 04?

                                03?

                                02?

                                01?

                                Its been a while, my cursed Yankee friend... Ah Chris...I cant wait for next year, you looked good in Red.
