    See, whenever I propose a bet, your sack runs away and hides every time! Well your tactics won't work even if you wet yourself . . .

    • I didn't say I wouldn't take the bet... I was just pointing out the inequity.

      • Not technically dead, but realistically dead



        The Yankees started what was viewed as a vital nine-game homestand with a drubbing at the hands of the rival Red Sox. And for those living in the real world, that is it for the storied $200 million-plus team, at least for the 2014 season.




        NEW YORK (AP) For a team languishing in last place, the future looks awfully bright in Boston.

        Xander Bogaerts homered among his four hits and fellow rookie Mookie Betts also went deep during a big night at the plate to power the Red Sox past the New York Yankees 9-4 on Tuesday.

        The 21-year-old Bogaerts drove in two runs and finished a triple short of the cycle. He and Betts, born six days apart in October 1992, became the first pair of Red Sox rookies to homer at Yankee Stadium in the same game since Dick Gernert and Faye Throneberry on Aug. 9, 1952.

        ''This season definitely has not been the way that we all wanted, we all expected it to be. But there's a lot of talent coming up and hopefully we can blend in together and have a good future,'' Bogaerts said.

        Daniel Nava hit a three-run shot and Yoenis Cespedes tripled, doubled and singled to back Joe Kelly's first win with Boston.

        Betts had three hits and slumping Mike Napoli added two sacrifice flies for the defending World Series champions, who have won eight of 11 on the road.

        • If Stephen Drew keeps it up he has an outside chance at batting under .100 for the Yankees! An 0 for 31 stretch should just about do it for him. Nice touch inserting him as the DH today. It tells the September call ups on the bench that they are just about worthless.

            If Stephen Drew is the best choice for their DH, that speaks volumes about New York's bench strength. . . crazy.gif - nod.gif

              Hmm, how often have I been speechless? This year's Yankees give me nothing I want to talk about... That's how bad it is... Wait until next season when Hal follows thru on his intent to reduce the payroll below the luxury tax threshold... Last place is not inconceivable.

              Anywho, I hear there's a football game on Sunday...

                        First of all, 14½ points? You're crazy. Both teams are in last place in their division. Last week's game, the Pats offense put up only 7 points! But, of course, because we're "friends", I'll be the generous one, again, and give you 9½ points. OK? - (Seems like I always end up caving in to you. - dismay.gif)

                        But, I want everyone else to understand that this offer is only for YankeeMan. NO EXCEPTIONS! - nono.gif
                        Besides, The Raiders are stoked for this game! See Charles Woodson on his Oakland Raiders!

                          I can read a box score. Can you? 14½, hey, nobody knows when the RAIDERS are going to win their next game. I hope it's this season but I'm not counting on it. Besides, they've lost 14 straight games in the Eastern time zone.

                            • The Raiders have not had a winning season since losing Super Bowl XXXVII

                              I'm so f'ing tired of losing...
