    Nah, if you point to small-sample sizes like that it's pretty meaningless. Oh and while Ruth may have blown the series in '26 he did pretty well in 1932

      Now, does this look familar?


      Mr. Ruth, THIS is how you steal a base.
      I suppose since you helped Ruth out we should give good ol' Billy Buckner a tip on his fielding, I`m feeling generous so I`ll give him two.




      Now, you field like this

            Come on, one season in 88 years isn't a very good indicator of a team's skill.

                I feel the same way!
                You'd think they, (NESN), would know all of RS Nation would tune in after every game regardless the network that covered the game . . .

                • The J.D Drew song (A-rod wishes he could do this):

                  Singles Man


                  Let me tell you how it will be;
                  1 for you, 2 per game for me.
                  Cause I'm the singles man,
                  Yeah, I'm the singles man.

                  Should one base appear to small,
                  be thankful I don't take them all.
                  Cause I'm the singles man,
                  Yeah, I'm the singles man.

                  (If you try to make a diving catch) - I'll hit it hard;
                  (If you try to pitch me away) - I'll slap it to right and make you pay;
                  (If you play your outfielders in) - I'll crush it deep;
                  (When that Monster is standin tall) - Be ready to play it off the wall.

                  Singles Man!

                  Cause I'm the singles man,
                  Yeah, I'm the singles man.

                  Don't ask me what I do it for, (ah-ah Mister Drew)
                  If you don't want to pitch some more. (ah-ah Mister Wang)
                  Cause I'm the singles man,
                  Yeah, I'm the singles man.

                  Now my warning to those who throw, (Singles Man)
                  I am ready to make my dough. (Singles Man)
                  Cause I'm the singles man,
                  Yeah, I'm the singles man.

                  And I'm the only who does it so good.

                  Singles Man!

                    I hope he didn't get hit with some shrapnel from the FOUR successive bombs that were launched in last nights game . . . :dismay:

                                Hopefully, Yankee pitching doesn't get trounced this time. All these SP injuries are standing between us and 1st place. Boston should not have had 7 runs in each of 3 games.

                                On a sidenote, DM didn't overly impress me that much. Yes, he's better than quite a few Yankee starters, but they way he was made out to be, I thought we were getting a Johan Santana or Roy Halladay type. He was good, had a gazillion pitches, but those runs hurt him. Of course, after all those Beantown back-to-back-to-back-to-back jacks, who am I to speak?

                                Oh yeah, the sun's not up yet on the east coast. Y'all folks get back to beddy-bye!
