              A meltdown of what proportions? Anything like getting spooked by a TV reporter, a la Big Unit?

                • I was looking thru some old posts...

                  ...and found this gem from October 2006...

                  Sleep tight, little one. You'll only be Rip Van Winkle at Sleepy Hollow by the time that wonderful day does come. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, the 2007 Red Sawx will surely be a bust!




                  Just think, this is what you look like now:

                  Now what was that about the 2007 Red Sox being a bust?

                    Ya got lucky and that's all there was to it. You'll never repeat!

                    Now all of you children go back to sleep.

                      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 thought your advice would be to never accept a bet, since you are on the losing side in general...

                        YBF, did you let Ken or that scoundrel SDL steal your password again?

                        Man, you've gotta be nice to Yankee fans. If not, then these Beantowners sure won't be.

                          You're right. But even Yankee fans must tease each other once in a while. So for the time being, I will not bug you.

                            That scoundrel SDL happens to be my buddy. Yes, sometimes even Yankee fans and Red Sox fans can get along.

                                Oh geez, someone who's half a Yankee fan and half a Beantown fan. At least you're halfway good, but sometimes I don't know whether I'm speaking with the good side or the bad side.
