    D'oh.

    Things were exciting for a minute there in the 6th!

    I have to admit, that was some damn fine pitching.

    What a difference a year makes. :confused:



    Oh well, I can still get goose bumps thinking about last year.
    Its funny how I am a huge Red Sox fan, yet I hate the Patriots almost as much as fire ants.

    if a team can't get a game-tying run w/ the bases jammed and no outs, they don't deserve to move on.

    did damon look totally lost at the plate the entire game, or was it just me?

    I second that. As far as Damon is concerned, he almost looked as hopeless as Varitek..... :nuts:

    The 6th inning sucked (besides Manny). Unfreakin real. Oh well, Chicago has a great team. I didnt see the Sox getting by them even if they won today. The team didnt have the same vibe as last year at all. They seemed too stiff (Renteria), not as loose and fun as last year. I have a feeling some familiar faces will be gone next season.

    Anyways, go Sox (Chicago that is)

    Oh man. That's like Stalin complaining about Hitler. The Red Sox have the second largest payroll and third place is not in sight, plus there are a few skeletons in the Boston sports history you don't want to stir up...

    uh, NY's payroll is something like 210 million, whereas boston's is 130 or so. certainly very high, but nowhere near as astronomic as georgie boys. and i think LA's isn't that far off from the red sox (the mets are right there too).

    the WSJ had an article on this yesterday; the yankees paid about 2 million per win.

    I'm a Cubs fan, so I pretty much feel sad this time every year...but, at this point, I just want someone, anyone, to beat the Yankees.

    Well at least now I won't have two weeks of five-hour-a-night-sleep nights like last year. The Sox were lucky to even be there.

    Time for Mr Epstein to blow up the pitching staff and rebuild it. The future does look bright with Jonathan Papelbon and Craig Hansen.

    ...and that's it for the yankees. :dancing:

    i bet if steinbrenner paid a-rod more money, he may have had enough incentive to get a hit last night.

    and these will be standard parts of the NY outfielder's uniforms next year:




    BWAHAHAHAHAA!!!!

    A-Rod's inability do to ANYTHING when it matters most is simply mind boggling (and gratifying!). I mean, it's not even a matter of him not doing anything, he actually does things to HURT the Yanks (errors, double plays, etc). $25 million per season well spent, eh? :) HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Hey Bubba Crosby: LOOK OUT! :p

    Ok this is coming from a Yankees fan (me) who HATES Arod. Is there any player of "superstar" caliber that is as inept in the clutch as he is?
    Honestly, the douche hit .330-50-120 this year and went 0-fer this series, 0-fer in games 4-7 last ALCS and pretty much disappears whenever his team needs a hit.
    Its like he's Roy Hobbs when they are up by 5 runs in the 8th inning but turns into some scared little leaguer if the runner on base needs to score with them down by a run. I really cant think of anyone with as many accolades as him who sucks as bad in the playoffs. Left 3 guys on last night, GIDP with him as the tying run in the top of the 9th yesterday, hell, if he didnt fark up so bad in just that one, last inning the Yankees would likely have won. So Im laying on the couch last night and see Jeter get on and Arod get up to bat and I say to myself, "self, I bet a million bucks he grounds into a double play". Guess what happened....As soon as he swung, I started laughing my head off.
    God DAMNIT, he should be deported! Not even shipped to another team, he needs to be shipped off to the salt mines, away from causing any one else the grief of having him.

    Let me guess, the Sox lost because of the new White Sox Curse. This will haunt them for the next 80 years.

    I feel the same way about A-Rod...the most overrated player in the game. The guy never comes through in the clutch. Listen to the post game interviews of D. Jeter and A-rod you can tell why one is a winner and the other will never be.

    agreed, i watched some of the post game stuff last night and a-rod was saying "well they played better than us, they deserved to win" blah blah
    jeter went and came straight to the point "we sucked"
    you could tell he was pissed but arod was more like, "meh"

    Bah. I'm not going to quit being a Red Sox fan just because I don't live in New England...

    I'm sure your family and friends would be happy to hear that you believe loyalties ought to vanish that quickly, though :p

    NASCAR sucks. :stosh:

    Sooooooooo close.

    Why is it whenever I have tickets to a postseason game the team has to go and lose? :( (not just yankees)

    Edit: Maybe they could make a mit that would enable Manny to be capable of catching a baseball. I could do a better job out there than him. :rolleyes:

    Yes, and I am going to NY this weekend regardless of the game. It just would have been nice. My pops is up for an award for New Discovery of the Year Award so my mother and I are tagging along.
