  • Hey, Ken. I hear it's your day. Not your year, but your day.

    The Great Pumpkin may just pass by at midnight!



    It's too bad that you'll have to wait until 2090 to see it. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

    • 2090? Yeah right, you Yankees may never see #27 until 2086. I thought the Red Sox and Yankees call a ceasefire after the postseason, guess I was wrong. Anyway, the Yankees bore me with their constant losing in the postseason, bring someone else up to the plate for us that can fight back (Tigers or A's).

          Yo, Ken! How was your Halloween? What'd you dress up as? A fan of a 3rd place team, perhaps?



          Hey, it's the Great Pumpking coming to your rescue ... in 2090!

            Yankees:

            2001
            2004 (should count double)
            1904 (JACK CHESBRO)

            Red Sox:

            1946
            1949
            1986
            1975
            1978
            2003
            2005
            2006
            Fixed it for ya.

            If 2004 counts double for 3 games, 1978 sould count 27 time more! And you forgot the 1946, (Cardinals), 1949 (Yankees), 1975 (Reds), 2003, (Yankees... again!) 2005,(Yankees... huh) and 2006. (Yankees, starting to get old.)

                • Game 7, 2004 of the ALCS...you know WHO won in WHOSE home? The Red Sox, of course at Yankee Stadium. Oh yes, here's the 1942 World Series, won by none other than the Cardinals. Here's another Yankees choke never to forget: Luis Gonzalez's double in a TIE game, 1-1. The Yankees COULD have won, but they choked instead - with their best closer in modern baseball on the mound.

                  Well, here's an insulting picture, a score from an actual Yankees game two years ago. Take this, Yankee fans!

                    Perhaps you'd better choose your words more carefully.

                    The year the Mets were born, the Yanks won #20. Me likey!

                    You folks also forgot the 1948 one-game playoff in which Beantown lost to the Tribe, who then won the WS (against the Beantown Braves).

                      McCovey would like to forget 1962 also.

                          I admit I made a typo.

                          I meant this...

                          http://www.baseball-reference.com/po.../1963_WS.shtml

                          BTW..who was that Dodger 1B? I can't remember who he played with BEFORE the Dodgers...but it looks like he had a good Series in '63...

                          • Got a question here.

                            If George and John traded players in the middle of a doubleheader. Which team do you root for? Would you immediately start insulting a player that you use to cheer for? Do you move from Boston to New York and vice-versa?

                            • I'd root for Boston regardless, not the evil Yankees that steal players from the free agent list and end up having their careers siderail, as of late. (like A-Rod, for instance this year)

                                Yeah, don't blame you. I'd still root on the Yankees, been doing it since I can remember, 1958 or so. Glad I grew up in Colorado, didn't have to get into the hereditary rivalry thing. Only thing that has changed thru the years is that the Red Sox now finish 2nd in payroll like in the standings.
