    Thanks for the clarification on that.

    But which played their first game on the west coast first?

      Team history does certainly matter, and I am sure that the White Sox would trade in their 2005 trophy for the 26 that the Yankees have gotten since the W. Sox first one. And I am sure that the Marlins would trade in their history for the 26 Championships the Yakees despite the 2003 trophy. Same for the Diamonbacks in 2001. Yankees fans hae every right to be proud of their history - which shows something much more important that a single season trophy (which has a lot of luck involved) - franchise domination. give me the latter, thank you very much.

      I am not a big Yankee or Red Sox fan, but if I had a chose, I'd rather see the real Yankees on top, than the team that acts like they are the Yankees.

        Sounds like you don't think too much of the players representing the Yankee team, this is the Yankees as they are today.

          No, I'm not a fan of teams who win a couple championships in recent history and many fans act like they are God's gift to their respected sport or act like a couple of recent success negates decades and decades of inferiority to the team they brag towards the most. This is what I fear most when the Cubs finally win a W.S.. And it isn't just the Sox, lots of franchises do it. Not a fan of either team, and I really don't have anything personal against any of the players on either team and know that most fans of any team are great.

            I'm curious, exactly are you saying about the current Yankee team? That their players believe that other teams are unworthy?

              Heh, exactly. Before Boston won it's WS I was a secret Cubs rooter, feeling that they were much like my own team, historic "almost greats" . After seeing how well *cough* Boston fans handled their own win and now having one less team with a historic losing streak, I now root against the Cubs and don't want them to even sniff a WS.

              Not before my team wins one anyway. :gt

              After that it's all good.

                • Based on how the Yankees-Red Sox series has gone so far I think it will be almost impossible to predict the AL Pennant Winner.

                            Thanks, Ken. I didn't have the heart to reply here, but that's a nice story.

                            Sooooooooo ... how's things in Beantown, anyway?

                              Well, I was heartbroken at the quick exit from the playoffs. (Now I know how you Yankee fans have been feeling for the last 9 seasons.)
                              A.J. came through big for you guys last night. Pedro pitched good too. I can't believe the pitch that Matsui hit for his HR.
                              And what's up with A-Rod? Aside from his 6 strikeouts, he hasn't done anything. He's got to be a major disappointment so far for you guys.
                              Has Joe Girardi lost faith in his bullpen to the extent that he'll have Rivera go 2 innings every outing?
