    Why is there so much animosity between veteran players and the manager/front office? - :disgruntled: -

    Hank Steinbrenner naturally inspires animosity...

      True, but I don't think he's even involved in this situation.

                  Oh, did I miss something, I thought the winner was declared after 162 games.

                  • Any truth to the rumor that the reason Thursday's game didn't start until 10:30 pm is so Jorge Posada could watch the first half of the Miami-Dallas NBA Finals? ;-)

                        If only this was a rematch of the ''72 Finals and the results were the same as back then. Now who did we beat back then and WHRE did we win it? Oh yeah...

                          OK. (Without looking at your enclosed link), we beat the NEW YORK Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Bobby Orr scored the winning goal. He holds the record for number of times scoring the winning goal that clinched the Stanley Cup. Twice in 1970 & 1972.

                          • I get so down when they lose.

                            After four straight losses, depression sets in. h

                            • I just had a thought:

                              Remember that game on 9/20/2001, the first baseball game in NYC after 9/11? That was between the Mets and the Braves, who are of course fairly strong rivals - yet before the game started, everyone congregated on the field and exchanged handshakes, hugs, and assorted other pleasantries. Even the fans didn't boo - they cheered for both teams. Something that you just don't usually see in baseball. My thought is this:

                              If that had been a Yankees/Red Sox game, would those two teams (and their respective fans) have been as friendly to each other as the Mets and Braves were?
                              It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shakes, the shakes become a warning. It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.

                                Perhaps for the duration of the 3 game series.

                                Beyond that, not so much . . . :dismay:
