      We may not win it all this season but I don't think the Yankees will either.

      I'll admit it -- the Yankees are playing terribly. And over the last several seasons, the September record has been less than great. All good news for Boston fans.

      But it's not the hitting -- it's the lousy fielding and crappy starting pitching that has me concerned.

      The Yankees are setup for an early post-season exit, if they get to the post-season at all.


      3-0 Boston after 1 inning.

        hope they don't get too CHOKED up!


        too funny!
        Reggie, Thurman, Billy, George. Graig, All argued, all earned the title "Bronx Zoo". Gee, I wonder if they won anything in 1978.

        *kicks RSFA back off the burning ship*

        Don't forget, you've got Pedro, but we've got Enrique Wilson ... and Nick Johnson.

                Ugly my foot. We held on just enough to prevent Pedro from getting an ND.

                Hey, Boston fans! This ain't Seattle you're playing, so no win for Pedro tonight, just the loss.

                • I pride myself on being objective -- this was not a pretty win today.

                  The bullpen almost gave it away!

                  I want to see good defense and solid pitching from start to finish. Not "flashes."

                  At least the bats roared to life and Pettitte had a quality start.

                  • Very true, YM, you are objective, and it was an ugly win. However, we got the most beautiful thing in sight:

                    W: Andy Pettitte (17-7); L: Pedro Martinez (10-4); S: Mariano Rivera (30)

                            No fair, Jose Contreras beat the O's also, and we gave up no runs then (7-0). Your score was 13-1.

                            Did you happen to take note that a certain pitcher only lasted 4 innings yesterday against the Yanks, then was taken out forcibly? Did you happen to notice that his first name was Pedro? Just a thought.

                              Pssssssssssst, don't tell nobody, but George just "bought" himself another win yesterday. In fact, he even put bonuses in everybody's check that if you take out Pedro early so he could get only the loss or the ND, they'd get a bigger one the next day. Andy got the win, Pedro got the loss and Mo got the save (however ugly), so there's a double bonus, this one in dirty green ca$h!

                              It's all a conspiracy that Selig needs to look into, and besides, it's beddy by time in New England. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!

                              • Sorry to do this to you, Boston fans *crosses fingers*, but ya had your big hopes on Mr Automatic held so high, I guess that those two dominating games against Seattle must've taken something out of the tank. Now we'll have to see what *our* Roger Clemens has tonight, and what Tim Wakefield does.

                                Don't worry, it's all good, all in fun. Now if I were being evil, I'd just mention that Posada had 2 jacks, 3 RBI while Varitek was 0 for 4, and that the quartet of Nick Johnson, Enrique Wilson, Jorge Posada and Derek Jeter did some damage yesterday. However, I'm not evil, so in celebration of Saturday afternoon:

                                Pettitte earns 17th victory, ties AL leaders

                                BOSTON (AP) -- Nick Johnson and Jorge Posada wouldn't let the New York Yankees' bullpen give the game away.

                                That's why Andy Pettitte came away with a win and Pedro Martinez didn't.

                                Pettitte outlasted the fatigued Red Sox ace Saturday and led the Yankees to a 10-7 victory over Boston, surviving early trouble to move into a tie for the league lead with his 17th win. New York extended its lead in the AL East to 4{ games.

                                "This could be the biggest game of the year," Yankees manager Joe Torre said.
