What do you say, Mattingly?
    I love how you say from this point on. After the Yankees have signed two of the top free agents in baseball. A-Rod who their is no bigger free agent than him and Rivera who was the best closer on the market.

    Neither team will also probably signj any big free agents anyway. Saying that the Yankees signing of Jose Molina is the bigger than the Red Sox signing of some bench player is pretty meaningless. The Yankees have already done most of their free agent signings.

    Aren't these the same Boston fans that constantly complain about the Yankees going out and buying all the best players and bragging about how signing the biggest free agents don't really help?

    I`d take that bet easily even though it wasn't directed at me.

    Anyway, I hope evryone in the US had a good Thanksgiving

      So, I, with the most posts on BBF, am expected to accept a bet with someone who has all of one post here? Hey, pal, what's in it for me?

      Why don't you change "from this point on" to "this offseason", with the word "offseason" being defined as beginning on the day after the end of the 2007 World Series, and ending on the day before the 2008 regular season?

      If that were the case, I'd have already won, since Alex Rodriguez became a free agent and was re-signed by the Yankees. While I like Mike Lowell, does anyone think he's a bigger star than A-Rod? Is he even a bigger star than Miguel Cabrera, who gets more interest, despite the king's ransom in players his team would expect for him via trade?

      Between the "from this point on" thing, to your having all of 1 post, something smells fishy about your post. That you even would come to think that I'm the so-called leader of the Yanks here on BBF (which I'm not if you really knew us) shows to me that you may not just be the innocent passerby that you make yourself out to be.

      I also don't understand why the color choices would be red or black. Why not red or navy blue?

      No thanks on the bet. Enjoy your day, however.

        My advice is to never take a bet with a newbie. The odds are greatly in their favor, and the low-risk thing of their not even having to show up after a loss is another obvious thing they don't mind one bit.

        I'd say it's like if you made a bet with someone for $5. Not that I recommend it, but if they win, they've got money to show they could pay; if they lose, they somehow have trouble paying. People like that, I don't have much time for, and this forumer came with the cheesy excuses made in advance.

        I'd just give a simple "no thank you", since from this point on, I don't see the Yanks signing any more big-name free agents. If they'd signed for Aaron Rowand, I'd be happy. The Indians signed a Japanese closer, and if we'd done that, we could have an excellent setup man for the next year or so, and he could take over for Mo sometime in 2009, putting Joba in the rotation in 2008.

        Who are we going to argue about? Which low-level FA is higher valued? To me, it's a wasteful battle, and the fact that the newbie has mentioned "from this point on" indicates that he/she has no confidence that Boston will ever sign a free agent bigger than Messrs Rodriguez, Posada and Rivera.

          I have no idea why you'd say this. I'm just catching up here on this thread.

          If someone was from the New England area, then I have no idea how, if they've got one MLB, NBA, NHL & NFL team in the whole area, that they would be "gutless" for rooting for those teams. Only one team for each of the above-mentioned sports in that whole multi-state region to root for.

          If someone has lived for many years in New England, or at least worked or went to school there for several years, I wouldn't consider rooting for the NE teams to be "gutless" in any way.

          I think that I'd have more criticism for the NY/NJ area fans who'd rooted for the New England teams, yet had absolutely no ties to the NE area, nor had they rooted for those teams before they'd started winning.

          Whether or not someone was a "bandwagoner" is the key word here, I'd think.

            Yo SDL!
            Even if there was a conflict with Giambi's number 25, which Girardi has usually worn throughout his career, Yankees ownership or their publicity department were quick to urge Girardi to take # 27 instead, with all the World's Championship implications that that would involve.

              Its funny how he has a world series ring, and every Braves player was at home in October too. Come back when you finish in the top 2 in your division.

              Haha, talking trash about paying 100 mil for an under-performing pitcher, how's Mike Hampton working out for you?

                          Yes, that's true.
                          Following that logic, you'll have your next championship by 2023 . . .

                            If that would mean that we will win another 26 this century, I could live with that.

                            And even better, if that would mean that 2018 would be your last WS title for 86 years to come... priceless
