    Hey the Thousand Year Reich lasted only 12 years (Thank Goodness). All I want to say with this is that nothing lasts forever. But the season is not over yet.

    We'll meet again.

    • Yeah, as a matter of fact, we'll see you Yankees at Fenway Park this week, and we'll be ready for you. And it seems like you're trying to ride on the success of A-Rod, but be careful IF he makes the playoffs, as he'll be hitting .050 to .225.

      Are you sure you want to challenge the Boston Red Sox? Are you really sure? *laughs insanely*

            How about this, if the Yankees last longer than the Red Sox do than you have to wear and Yankees avatar and sig until Manny reports to ST

            If the Red Sox last longer than the Yankees than I have to wear a Red Sox avatar and sig until New Years Day

            Since the Red Sox have the division lead and the Yankees are 4th in the WC than you would have to use the Yankees avatar and sig longer than I would have to wear the Red Sox avatar and sig. Scared?

            • Regardless of how the Fenway game ends, do any Beantowners here still doubt that Tampa Bay can be spoilers this time of year? I thought that KC would've won at least 1 game off the Yanks, but a sweep was nice.

              TB was up 8-1 earlier, but now it's 8-4. It'll take some effort, but it's still the 4th inning. In either case, can Boston fans really wonder how the Yanks lost 2 of 3 to that team?

              Hey, you folks are in 1st, so a similar series loss to you guys & gals would seem to be a bigger blow, wouldn't you say?

                Tied as we speak at 9-9. Some guy who was fortunate to escape the Yankee organization...I think his name is Lowell...4 for 4 so far in the game.

                  After a 5 run 6th, it is 13-9 with a runner on third with 2 down.

                    14-9 in the middle of the 7th.

                    What's making it even more enjoyable is watching it on the Rays TV network and hearing DeWayne Staats and Schilling's "buddy" Joe Magrane do the PBP

                      15-9 in the 7th with a Papi Bullpen Blast! (sounds like a new DeAngelo's combo meal). And now 16-7 with a Drew HR!!!

                        Damn...

                        I'm now drooling at the thought of a Inside Pokket from D'Angelos....

                            How many times are you going to conveniently ignore the truth. Wakefield was knocked out of the game after 3 IP. We beat your 3 best pitchers (Beckett, Matsuzaka and Schill), and Alex Rodriguez is looking like the runaway MVP, playing 3B. Which part of these are hard to understand for you?

                            Yes, Lowell is good. You wish to compare him to Alex Rodriguez, go ahead. No more of that "Nomah is better" stuff either. We don't talk lame junk like that.

                            Right now, if not for their total bullpen collapse, TB was looking to take 2 of 3 from Boston. Rubber match tomorrow.

                            What number do you get if you double that #13?

                            Anyway, you sure that #13 isn't a tribute to the best third bagger in the American League? Alexander the Great!

                              Hey..how many rings does A-Rod have? The man is a CURSE, I tell ya!

                              13 x 2 is 26...worn by stars of the past such as Earl Wilson who threw a no-no for the Sox...Bill Henry, who is NOT dead, and Reggie Cleveland who, had Zimmer not had a personal dislike of him and sold him to Texas just before the '78 season started, might have made sure we didn't blow that 14 game lead that year...

                              Also worn by the great Bruins defenseman of those Stanley Cup teams of '70 and '72..Don Awrey!

                                I'm curious, when are you going to answer things other than those parts of a question which favor you? Such as the ones I'd asked?

                                I'm not the least bit concerned here about any Pats, Bruins or Celtics players. This is a baseball forum, not some NE fan section.

                                You'd mentioned Mike Lowell going 4-for-4. That's fine. I'd mentioned Alex Rodriguez. Did you read that part? Do you wish to compare Lowell to Rodriguez? Yes or no? Who's looking like the runaway AL MVP candidate? Can you even admit who this is w/o changing the topic? Let me start it off.

                                Lowell has 18 jacks and 103 RBI. Compare that to Alex' 52 and 140 RBI, then an OPS that's almost 1.100. That's about .220 higher. One is a very good hitting third bagger most teams would enjoy having. Another is an elite athlete.

                                BTW, Don Zimmer was your manager. Who was the GM in 1978? Did Zim have a role in Reggie Cleveland's trade? If so, please specify.

                                So a RS fan is calling the Yanks cursed? This despite nothing from 1919 through 2003? That's quite a few years. So a 32-yr-old player is cursed? You sure you haven't been believing too much of the anti-A-Rod stuff the Yankee-hating media pours out? How would you describe Ted Williams, Carl Yasztremski and Barry Bonds then? I really can't stand bringing up their names, but none of them have any rings either. Nothing can ever change that.

                                I really think you need to put this anti-Yankee thing in perspective, since it's just a game.
