I had tix for tomorrow's game, and didn't want to have to drive an hour and a half down there, pay for parking, and wait all day until they cancelled the game (gonna rain all day) then have to go back down on Sunday. So thinking about a wasted day, and having to kill many hours in the rain tomorrow - I actually found myself secretly hoping they'd lose today. I felt somewhat guilty about it too.

It was a great year. Now I'm rooting for the Angels. Then I'll root for the White Sox. Like the T-shirt says "I root for two teams. The Red Sox and whoever is playing against the Yankees."

My impression of the Sox is they began to believe their own legend too much. The press was full of stories yesterday morning about how the Sox aren't in trouble and how they are used to digging out of holes. Apparently they must have read the stories because I didn't see any urgency or passion on the team. How can you have the bases loaded with nobody out and not score in a clutch game?

All I know is this north-sider has no problem rooting for the Comiskeys against the scourge of the universe.

I was doing my best to yield my comments....especially, since the Yankees are gasping for air....(long wet night @ The Stadium last night).....
Then I clicked here:
http://www.bostonherald.com/

Totally pathetic....click on the front page...and it saying "but we'll always have last year"
and then to see an article on why to hate the Yankees...due to increased security costs.....

NEWS FLASH...IT WAS THE WHITE SOX THAT TOTALLY DOMINATED AND SWEPT YOU!!!!!!!!

To me, this is just another page in the humilation of the self victimized Red Sox fan.
Pathetic.

Hey Shen, I'm looking for the article you refer to and can't find it.

Yes the White Sox totally dominated the Red Sox, no question about it. The Red Sox had little chance of doing much in the postseason, no doubt.

But I don't understand your comments. The herald is like the Post by the way, stupid, reactionary BS.

If we "hate" the Yankees it's only because of their domination over the years. I think it's more frustration and respect - more like "hating" that steep mogul run that always beats you up.

There are a lot of stupid Red Sox fans, no doubt, I listen to talk radio sometimes and they're morons (as are the hosts.) But I'm sure the same can be said for many Yankees fans. In fact at least 51% of this country are stupid, eh?

I didn't realize that the Herald has sunk to the Post's status

http://news.bostonherald.com/galleri...intEditionNews

http://news.bostonherald.com/localRe...ticleid=106090


guess I should read the Globe
post #12 of 24
I don't know if it's as bad as the Post honestly, but it is a right wing rag. Globe is better .

I was at one of those Yankees games, and coming out of the game I couldn't believe how many cops were around! Every 30 feet or so were about 5 SWAT guys with baseball caps on. Everything was extremely calm (who'd want to mess with that kind of presence?)

Blaming the Yankees for it is stupid. Takes two to rumble after all, and the biggest violence we had, when that girl was killed by a cop with a pepper gun, was after we won last year. It was your typical college type "riot" of celebration.

The city clearly decided to protect themselves from their own possible police overreaction by having SO many cops that nothing could go wrong. The cost of all those cops wasn't to protect against Yankees fans, as far as I'm concerned, but to protect against stupid cops overreacting. Sure Sox and Yankees fans do fight after games, which is sad - but it ain't the teams faults.

But I must stop now, because I think I'm starting to talk politics, something I don't ever want to get involved in again on epic.

If Red Sox fans can console themselves with anything, it's the fact that they lost to:

a) a clearly superior team, not a bad call or an easier schedule.
b) a franchise/fan base that has suffered far more than they had, even pre-2004, if that's possible.

As a diehard Yankee fan that desperately wants a return to our late 90s form, even I'll have no problem if the Chisox go all the way this October. I lived in Chicago for three years during the mid-90s, and it's difficult to oversee the similarities between the popular favorites Cubs/Yankees and the uncool, working-class White Sox/Mets. But while the Mets have won it all a couple times and come pretty close a couple times, the White Sox haven't done much of anything since 1917.

In short, they deserve a win.

Especially, the day after the Red Sox were eliminated by another team.....

and who pays for the the police presence when the Red Sox and every other visiting team visits Yankee Stadium?

Who ever wrote and allowed this to be printed needs to go outside take a deep breath.....and realize that it tastes-smells-looks-and feels...like elimination, 'cause it is.

Wasn't that what the Red Sox fans were saying yesterday?

I wouldn't line a bird cage with the Herald outta respect for the birds. Globe ain't much better. Except for Ryan, the sports section has sucked. I miss Will McDonough. Tip o' the cap to the White Sox. Gonna be an interesting off season here in Beantown.

If it's an Angels-White Sox ALCS, what's the over under on manager eff bombs?
post #19 of 24
don't worry about us bosox fans, epstein will blow this mess up and they will roar out of the box next year....millar, muellar, timlin, damon, graffanino likely all gone(muellar my favorite player too bad, and damon not worth 12m which is what boros will be asking)

papelbon and hansen are ready, lester is close and many more live arms are in the pipeline...pedroia is ready to step in at major league min $$$ for graffanino with cora as backup and h ramirez is close.....gonna be an interesting off season...clear out the above $$ and red sox will be players for any free agents they desire....

manny ramirez for beltran straight up, you new yawkas hearing that one too...??? Omar probably thinks he can clean up the act....my question is, the way manny hits who cares, I'd keep him....but it's not my money....

bottom line the best sawx won, not even close....2005 bosox $140 m plus and not worth it.....it's all about the pitching and bosox couldn't line up the right guys.

blowing the div lead to the yanks and having to fight to the end precluded the option of setting up the pitching....shame is if they could have won last night, a rain out or 2 could have set up wells and shilling for the final 2 games.....oh well, no spilt milk the better team (clearly) won.....

LET'S GO HALOS!!!!!

where's my rally monkey??????

Manny might be a MET....it certainly does not look like he will back in Boston.
Your trade will not happen, Minaya, is a very intelligent baseball man and that would not be beneficial to the METS.... defense @ Shea is very important.......the place is huge.....The METS are planning on launching their own TV network....Marquis names like Beltran, Manny, Pedro are good advertising....as is a lot of 'trade talk' ...just to get the METS airplay.....
Plus Beltran has a no trade clause. The METS need catcher(one of the Molina's), 1st baseman(Sean Casey), and pitching help(like everyone else). Manny would be much better off in the American league...(Yet, I think he will make his way to Flushing).

The Red Sox certainly will look a lot different next year ....no doubt...

As far as your rally monkey....well I just won't go there

Never doubt my ability to prognosticate.

About halfway through last night's game, I couldn't deal with the dopes on the Fox TV team, so I killed the audio, and turned on the Yankee radio broadcast on WCBS for some intelligent analysis (and to hear "the-e-e-e- Yankees win!"... which happened later).

I was never aware that televised games are on a 10- to 15-second delay. Why the hell would they need to delay a baseball game? Are they afraid that they'll pick up a player or manager saying the f-word? How lame...

In some places it seems worse....and different cable/satelite systems are variable.....I can be out in my back yard listening to the radio...and make it inside for the 'live' action of the same play....I also get the TV broadcast before my friends in queens...they are well over a pitch behind the radio....the radio is on a delay as well....Satelite RADIO is really slow.....Just weird....Should have been @ the Stadium ..it was awesome...
