Really like the chemistry of this team with the new talent....reminds me of the '96 team ...who realized they COULD win...and did not EXPECT to win...

word is last night's game will be made up as a day night double header..on Fri Sept 15th....


GOT MELKY?

bye bye, Sheff.

too much $$, $$$, $$$.00

they'd bump cabrera up from minimum salary to a small fraction of what sheffield would make if they pick up his option.

"the big eunuch." i do wish i'd thought of that one.

The Yankee's DL has the 3rd highest payroll in the majors...

So you got us in the third game .... playing the "B" team.

Was there a point there? :

thanks. knew it would come just wasn't sure from which corner.

"love the homegrown talent," etc., when it's a W.

"B team" when it's an L.

whatevah. hopefully that's the obligatory and now out of the way.

"Since the start of the 2002 regular season, and including two playoff series, the Yankees and the Red Sox have played each other 100 times. They are 50-50, including 5-5 this season."

see ya in august.

Off the top of my head...I think his option was pushing 15 Million-there is no way they pick that up...A renegotiation is possible....either way...it is highly unlikely that Sheffield will be a Yankee next year.


It was nice to see Otiz, Manny, and Melky joking around on the field before the game...You could tell they talking about 'the catch'.......I think Damon being on the Yankees has mellowed the tension between the teams...they seem to be having a lot more fun with each other...opposed to the strained tension of the last few years....Funny enough...a lot of the kidding has been intiated by Manny.....

Got Melky? -the shirts are hot right now...


Re "b" team...I think it has a little more to do with one's Ace going against one's 5th starter.

Both organizations are committed to winning and have general management that gets it done.

Both organizations have excellent young talent who'll be center-stage in all this for at least the next several years.

I suspect mutual respect is mixed in a little more heavily with the very real and fierce competitiveness than it was in years past.

It's great stuff. I love it. I get a kick - feel like a kid again - hanging on every at-bat, getting worked up (maybe a little too much sometimes, sorry), and feeling like I have some sort of personal stake in the greatest rivalry in pro sports.

It's fun. It keeps me loving the game despite the extracurricular crap swirling around it.

And I'm glad Jason Varitek is a Red Sox. I wish every kid had a chance to watch a player who keeps his head in the game and busts his ass down the line everytime. In my book, with Nomar gone, JV is the Sox's Jeter, who is also great to watch play. They do it right, they keep it pro. They're captains for good reason; they lead.

Gonz used to wonder very aloud how/why anyone would give a rat's posterior about what any particular team is doing and dismiss one's team "loyalty" as reflective of arrested development. He may have a point. But if arrested development means the little boy or girl in you stays alive, I think that may serve a useful purpose or two.

Now, if you will, a moment of extreme maturity:
soxrul&yankeesblo.

That is all.

50-50 since 2002

Amazing stat, and not much of a surprise. The only reason we keep watching and analyzing so intently is to see which Yankees or Red Sox team, champs or chokers, shows up on a given day.

Two days ago, the YES Network showed a "Great Yankee Moments" clip of Don Mattingly hitting his sixth career grand slam against the Red Sox in 1987. As he rounded the bases, you could see that the ENTIRE upper deck at the stadium was empty... as in, not one person there. Not sure if that was due to the fact that the Yankees weren't winning back then or a lack of interest in the rivalry, but it was pretty shocking.

The Yanks stunk back then...I remember being in some left field seats in the late '80's and people yelling to Deion Sanders..."How does it feel to be on the worst team in baseball...and the worst team in football!"(Falcons)

Mattingly, another captain. Not a bad 19th round draft choice.

Great hitter, great glove, and great chaw.

Yankees in series in 1981. Mattingly comes up (briefly) in '82. His last year is 1995, Yankees back to series in '96. Not fair. (At least he played in the '95 playoffs against Seattle.)

He's the guy who moved Steve Balboni off to KC.

Swept by the A's

Can't blame it on the AAAers... our pitching blows. One more loss and we'll be hearing from this guy:

WHO'S on a roll?

and, red sox nation thanks pedro for throwing batting practice last night.
post #82 of 87
Was it last year or the year before that the Red Sox were up by something like NINE GAMES in July?
post #83 of 87

i'm sure you have a point

i do recall the yankees having a 10 and half-game lead the year before last only to watch it dwindle away to near zip. that was 2004, the last time an american league east team was in the series.

wasn't the yankees.

since you asked.

to what's happening in '06. cheers.

I would like to congratulate the Red Sox for their victory over Tampa Bay last night.
post #86 of 87
come on now, Tampa Bay is the 'Best Bad Team in Baseball'.

Dropping 3 out 4 to them does hurt, however.
post #87 of 87
I just read a column that George doesn't care anymore! He is getting too old and is thinking about retirement.

He will pass the team to his daughters husband (to manage), and his son!
