      sigpicMan, do I *HATE* the Yankees!!!!!!

      • Question for you YM . . .



        When the Yankees got Ruth, (for Christmas), he was an 'ace' caliber starting pitcher.

        Why didn't they start him every 4th or 5th game and use him in the field the other games? - :disbelief: +

          I dunno... Maybe fatigue? However, I do believe he's still the career World Series ERA leader.

            • Admit it . . .
              You guys starting to feel it?

              Maybe a small drop of nervous perspiration starting to develop?
              I noticed it in Granderson tonight. http://boston.redsox.mlb.com/video/p...nt_id=23422131

              MtBWSGvF.jpg

              I also noticed Girardi's hands pressed tightly together () in the dugout a number of times, seemingly praying to stop the on slot that was the Sox tonight.

              Yup.
              Me thinks,
              you guys are starting to feel the pressure building from behind and that maybe, just maybe your season might start to resemble the 1978 Red Sox season?

                My boss back in Australia at the time asked me if I wanted to join him in an extended lunch break to go to the pub (bar) to watch this game. I was not even aware he was a baseball fan. He knew I was. We got back to work at around 3:30pm very happy!!

                No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference. ~Tommy Lasorda

                      It would be a great day for baseball -- not just in Boston or Chicago. And if I get a little "watery eyed" while your celebrating know this... It will not be from sadness or anger. It will be from great joy.

                      Some bitter rivalry, eh?
                      I just just thought I'd re-post this from 4/13/2003 (same thread).
                      Of course, I couldn't foresee how the
                      BoSux would go about it...

                      Now...

                          Following comment is "tongue-in-cheek:"
                          Really?! 'Cause I'm originally from a "small town" just south of there...

                          • Marlins suck. Phillies suck. Also, Fred Wilpon.

                            And everyone single beat writer who predicted the Marlins and Phillies would be better than the Mets this season.

                            The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

                              Wow, has anyone else noticed that the action in this thread has picked up considerably in the last few months or so?

                              - I wonder what/who
                              the catalyst has been? - -
