Go Yankees!!

Do it again tomorrow!!

BTW, I can't STAND the broadcasters on the FOX networks, especially Joe Buck:fiery: :fiery: . They were openly rooting for the Red Sox to win tonight and couldn't contain themselves when the Yankees pitcher (Mike Mussina) lost his perfect game bid and when the Red Sox almost came all the way back to tie the Yankees

I'm with you and the Fox gasbags commentators. What I would LOVE is for each teams' regular commentators to call the games when their side is home and have THAT broadcast nationally. They're going to have biases, but at least they'll know aht they're talking about. (and no, I'm not holding my breath)

BTW, I think it's really dirty pool that Steingrabber stole all the Sox bats and replaced them with styrofoam.

Though I grew up a Yankee loyalist, I wouldn't mind seeing the Red Sox rally and win (a tough hill to climb,with Curt Shilling out or less than 100% for a Game 5, though).

First, Steinbrenner had a fine shortstop in Derk Jeter, but signed A-Rod B4 the season mainly so the Red Sox couldn't. Also, I think their winning (the World Series) would actually give Kerry a boost, based on his hometown team finally "getting the monkey off their back".

It was announced a couple of hours ago that Shilling will not pitch Game 5 and may be out for the rest of the series.

Wow, know what you are talking about before spouting off. First of all, its Schilling, not Shilling. He's not British currency.

DerEk Jeter.

And the Yankees traded for Rodriguez, he didn't sign him. They had to give up a very valuable player in Alfonso Soriano (granted, a player who spent last postseason striking out more than The Steamer at a club).

How the fuck would the Red Sox winning help Kerry? Ponderous.

Well, considering the fact that you showed no actual knowledge about baseball anywhere else in your post it is reasonable to summize that they weren't typos.

"Mainly acted to keep A-Rod from going to the Red Sox"? What the fuck? Yeah, you are right. The only reason that the Yankees wanted the best player in baseball is because the Red Sox did.

I can picture Cashman calling up Steinbrenner "Hey George, we have a beat on that Rodriguez fella from Texas that Boston was interested in? Personally, never heard of him, but do you think we should get him?" To which, Steinbrenner replied "I've never heard of him either since I'm just a blubbering blowhard but if Boston wants him, YOU GO GET HIM!!!"

That would make TOTAL sense, underline, shorthand, ampersand, EXCLAMATION POINT

Anyway, not like your unenlightened ass would know but Cashman didn't tell Steinbrenner about the pending deal until he was reasonably sure that the deal would go through since he didn't want to end up disappointing Steinbrenner. So, the whole fact that this came after Boston's whooing was over and made Henry, Lucchino, Warner, et al, look foolish was purely gravy.

I love how you ended your post with "unreformed Annaholic". Oh, I get it. Annahol is a play on alcohol so you are saying that she is like a drug. Hoo hoo, that is so wacky. Where's my horn, dammit.

I think this country is filled with a bunch of sheep but I give them much more credit than your lame ass theory.

Don't you think its time that you didn't enter threads about subjects in which you have no fucking idea what you are talking about? Lets make a deal, you stay out of threads relating to anything about sports (other than tennis, although even that is a stretch) and I will stay out of threads relating to hot, passionate Robot on Robot sex. Deal?

Hopefully, you don't reply with another one of your zanirific posts.

Oct 16th, 2004, 07:27 PM
No wonder your screenname is Steam, as per the "about to blow a gasket" tone in your posts. :lol: And someone writing for a site like CNNSI or ESPN did write around when the Yanks got A-Rod (despite having Jeter) that the deal was partly done to keep him from the archrival Red Sox.

And as one who would prefer 2C NFL style revenue sharing in baseball (so the now gone Expo's wouldn't have kept losing their top players to the Braves, for example) I fully recognize that a team will not only try to stengthen itself, but also weaken a divisional rival.

Now re. your last paragraph: I know more about American politics than I'm sure 99% of the posters (even just the Americans) here. Yet I've never told (even those who aren't too knowledgable about it) to stay out of those threads. So re. your "offer": go play with your inflatable Anna doll.

Boston won 6-4 (12 innings):fiery: :mad:
Next Game: Monday at 5:00

Mariano Rivera blew a save for only the third time in his career in the postseason, but the Yankees should have scored an insurance run to secure the victory. But not to worry Yankee fans; the Yankees will win either today or tomorrow because no team in baseball has come back from 0-3 to win the next four games and with the Boston pitching being as shaky as it is (they are so desperate that they are starting an injured Curt Schilling in Game 6 if it gets that far:rolleyes: ), there is no way this series is going seven games.

Again, the Yankees fail to clinch when they had the chance. However, John Lieber is pitching tomorrow for the Yankees and the Red Sox are sending out an injured pitcher (Curt Schilling). I give the advantage to the Yankees and I hop they win tomorrow (I orginally predicted they would win in six games).

It's raining today in New York so there is a resonably good chance game 6 will be postponed a day and that would give the beleagured pitchers on both teams a much needed day off to rest their weary arms. :zzz:

Though I don't like that the Yankees haven't closed this series out yet, they still have the advantage. The Yannkes pticher for Game 6 (Lieber) is much healthier than the Boston pitcher for Game 6 (Schilling). Plus the Red Sox should hope to play tongiht because they have the momentum going into Game 6. Any day off will help the Yankees mroe than them. In addition, they'd better hop that the Yankees don't score first in Yankee Stadium because if it goes into extra innings aagin, advantage Yankees.

I agree that the Yankees would be helped more than the Bosox would be by a rainout. But the Red Sox seem oblivious to everything and nothing seems to faze them. Even being down to the Yankees 0-3 in games and losing 19-8 in game 3.

It's important that the Yankees win game 6 and rest for the World Series. One thing is for sure, there is not Josh Beckett of last years World Series on the Astros or Cardinals so the Yankees should be able to hit the Houston or St. Louis pitching alot better than they hit the Florida pitching in last years World Series.

They are not that oblivious. Each night, they were six outs away from going home for the winter and if the Yankees 2-3-4 hitters hit like they did in Games 1-3, the Red Sox would have no hope.

One thing people fail to bring up is that they have had to come from behind in extra innings to win both games, something that will not help them this time as they are not the home team.

Boston is a unique team and they have proven they should never be counted out.They shouldn't; they were eliminated by the Yankees in 1999 and 2003.

The pressure is equally on both teams, but moreso the Red Sox because they are they are the ones one game away from elimination. The only thing fragile about the Yankees pitching staff is the bullpen; the starting pitching is fine adn in better shape than the Red Sox. If the Sox force a Game 7, they have NO starting pitcher available because all but one (Schilling, tonight's starter) was used.

I agree they are unique; I know of no other team who is one or two outs from a World Series win, only to go on a lose and to be five out from going to the World Series and go on to lose that one too.

Liz, Manny Ramirez is the best hitter in the American League. And he was put on waivers in the offseason by the Boston Red Sox and he wasn't fazed by that one bit. It's like he was oblivious to that and the Red Sox trying to include him in the deal to Texas for Alex Rodriguez. Instead of complaining about the Red Sox trying to get rid of him and his contract he went out and had an MVP type of year. And the rest of the Red Sox seem as unfazed about facing elimination the way Ramirez was unfazed about a top player like him being put on waivers in the offseaon.

And Liz, this is not the Red Sox teams of 1975 and 1986. These Red Sox players are a different breed of player that doesn't dwell on the Red Sox terrible championship history and the alleged curse of the Bambino. I can assure you that 1918 means nothing to Manny Ramirez and his teammates. While the Boston media and Red Sox fans were killing the Red Sox for falling behind the Yankees 3 games to none in the ALCS and for losing the third game 19-8 in embarrassing fashion everyone thought the Red Sox were history in this series. Everyone thought that except the Boston red Sox players, coaches and manager. And the pressure is on the Yankees now. Let's see if they can summon up championship performances by their players and coaches. It sure looked like the Yankees who were the team feeling the pressure in games 4 and 5 instead of the Red Sox.

Considering how Ramirez is playing now (has yet to get an RBI in the ALCS) I can see why the Red Sox put him on waivers and I can see why no other team wanted him, including the Yankees (who got Sheffield, who has a World Series ring with the 1997 Florida Marlins). True. the pressure is on the Yankees to close it out, but as I said before; they are not the ones facing elimination. And I am sure the Red Sox are oblivious to this, but only two teams have forced a Game 6 in a LCS and both loset.

The game has already started and the Yankees are batting in the bottonm of the frst inning, but it is drizzling, but not raining hard enough to stop the game.

My opinion on Jeter changes day to day. There is something about his face that bothers me, but there is no denying that he has a great ass. That just might be enough for me to like him. Oh, who am I kidding, it totally is.

ALCS Boston vs. New York Game 6:
Boston won 4-2:mad: :mad:
Next Game: Tomrrow at 8:00

Well, Boston did something I didn't think they would do and that was force a Game 7. But they have to win it and without having a definite starter, they have a 2-5 record in series that went to seven games and they have lost every seven game series when they have been down 3-0. I still say advantage Yankees.

lizchris
Oct 20th, 2004, 04:21 AM
BTW, I just found out Tim Wakefield will start Game 7 for Boston. The probable starter for the Yankees is Kevin Brown, who, if I am not mistaken, pitched Game 7 of the 1997 World Series and won.

Overnight, there must have been some change, because now Derrick Lowe is supposed to be starting Game 7 for the Red Sox. Either way, they may be screwed because the Yankees hit both Wakefield and Lowe when they started. If the Yankee hitters are patient, which they will have to be tonight, they will hit off of the Sox and win.

griffin
Oct 20th, 2004, 01:42 PM
Francona actually suggested they might be going with Lowe right after last night's game - although the New York media might have been more focused on Torre than on what Tito had to say.

As for Schill's pitching being "God's work" I think the only Sox more annoying to listen to than Schill is Millar. (I would think a supreme being would have bigger fish to fry)

Why didn't the Yankees bunt on Schilling to get Schilling to move in ways he didn't want to? The Yanks are jsut waiting for the big hits and big innings and they need to manufacture runs and just wait for the home runs. Credit to Schilling though for pitching 7 shutout innings with a torn right ankle ligament.

I would rather have the Yankees face Lowe than Wakefield in game 7 because Wakefield's knuckleball could get them off their game even more than they already are. And they should have good cuts at Lowe as long as he's in there. But then there the choices of Brown and Vasquez to start for the Yankees and that's a scary thought for Yankees fans! :eek:

You mean they were playing like the Red Sox? :eek: I mean, I know whey the Sox don't bunt - they can't to save their lives - but it surprises me coming from the Yanks.

I want Wake to pitch for same reason you don't ;) Maybe Francona doesn't want to lose Varitek's bat, or risk lots of passed balls leaving him in to catch for Wakefield, because I don't think Lowe's been so impressive that it makes sense to start him based on the way he's pitching.

Griff, I think you're right about Francona not wanting to lose Varitek's bat. But I think the Yankees will get better swings against Lowe than against Wakefield.

Liz, the Yankees have to do something besides waiting for the long ball. I think a couple hit and run calls by Torre are in order for tonight. And he should pinch run when it is necessary too.

The reason why the Yankees won Games 1-3 is because they were patient at the plate. After Game 3, they became anxious because they were expected to close it out and swung at anything. Tonight, you will see that they will be more patient and should be more scuessful at the plate than in Games 4-6.

If the Red Sox win game 7 look for Bill Mueller or Tim Wakefield to be heroes. And if the Yankees win look for Tony Clark or the under used Kenny Lofton to play importnat roles in the Yankees win. Clark is due to do somehting good for the Yankees.

Griffy, I think there will be a total of 10 pitchers used in tonights game 7.

The Yankees better patient tonight, Liz. They need the Boston pitchers to throw alot of pitches because in some of those pithces will be some mistakes. But will the Yankees hit mistakes tonight with the incredible amount of pressure that is on them?

They did it last year, in 1978 and in 1949. For some reason, Boston can't close it out when they have the chance against the Yankees.

Congrats to the Red Sox for their great and historic come back against the Yankees. Coming from 0-3 down had never been done in the baseball postseason before and the Red Sox deserve credit for that. But they need to win the World Series this year to make their phenomenol win over the Yankees worhtwhile.

I don't think that's entirely true.

The thing is the next time a team leads a seven-game series 3-0 we get to hear those annoying TV and radio commentators yak on about how the Yankees were the first team in MLB history to blow a 3-0 lead. And that, I almost guarantee, will make many in "The Nation" happy. Lord knows how many times we have to endure "1918," "Bucky Dent" and "Bill Buckner" amongst other things. Now the Yankees and their fans finally know how it feels.

Of course Boston fans want a World Series and many won't be satisfied until there is one. But I think most Sox fans will still love this ragamuffin team...unless they do something massively big to bungle the World Series.

Hey Liz - trust those of us who LIVE here: WE care that the Sox beat the Yankees for the pennant, and will continue to celebrate that even if the Sox do lose the World Series. Don't get me wrong, The Nation wants the WS, too. Badly. But after decades of losing out to the Yankees (either because they finished behind them in the division, or lost to them in a division series), beating them, especially in such dramatic fashion, is HUGE.

Maybe it's hard to appreciate that when you cheer for a team that's made the post season 10 years running, and has been to the world series about as many times and the National League has won it. For the rest of the planet, though, this is a pretty sweet victory.

I don't think Red Sox Nation would have enjoyed the ALCS win half as much if it wasn't after being down 3 games to none and down in the 9th inning of Game 4. It was just added gravy that Game 7 took place in Yankee Stadium and we got to watch a bunch of guys with awful hair (or in Francona's case, no hair) hop about in celebration in the "House that Ruth Built."
