When it comes to the art of the choke, the Red Sox are in the dictionary. And save me your payroll garbage. Your team has the second highest payroll and you're using that against us.


Did I say anything about the Red Sox' payroll? If you scroll up, you'll see that I bashed them for that as well. I said that the teams that have beaten you over the last four years have been teams with 25% of your payroll, and that you should be questioning your front office's approach.

Last time I checked, Yankees- 26 World Series, 39 Pennants and 44 postseasons
                              Red Sox- 4 World Series, 8 pennants and 15 postseasons


Do I care? Since 2000:

Red Sox: 0-1
Yankees: 0-3

Hey Chris, everything is tilted in Boston's favor this time. On paper, they match-up well. I even picked them. So, if the Sox don't get it done, what's going to be your excuse?


If they don't get it done this year, they're done. Period. But, if the Yankees don't get it done, you do realize that they're in the same kind of trouble, right? Holes can't be magically patched up, no matter how much money you have. A team is a team, and you can't replace that with a band of free agents.

When did I praise the Red Sox, by the way? I disagree with the way they've built their team and conducted themselves over the years. I can tell you right now that I would have done things very differently, but I can't deny the fact that this year's team looks very strong and that they are playing like a team. They look like the Yankees from the late 1990s. You obviously remember them well, since you rely on the memory of those teams to console yourself when these Yankees fail year after year.

Sheeps, I think it's more than two series. Read my article on the history between the two teams. The Yanks beat out the Red Sox countless times when there wasn't another division and just a World Series. Why else do you think Ted Williams only got to one World Series?

I'm fed up of Sox fans like Chris making moronic statements about chokes. Are you kidding? 2001 was a choke? The Yanks cameback from the dead against Oakland and were down 2-0 against Arizona and pulled games out in their last at-bats to push that series to the brink. If that's a choke in your book, then what the hell is 1978 or 1986 or last year Chris?

And 2002 wasn't a choke job either. Anaheim was better and proved it by winning it all. Florida was better also and won in six games.


Oh, so whenever the Yankees lose in the postseason, the other team is simply better? How, exactly, were these teams better? Are you willing to admit that your team has a horrible front office and consistently loses to teams with 25% of the payroll?

"You know, there's a lot of people in the world who don't believe that -- that people whose skin color may not be the same as ours can be free, and self-govern. I reject that. I reject that strongly. I believe that people who practice the Muslim faith can self-govern. I believe that people whose skins aren't necessarily -- are, you know -- a different color than white can self-govern. And, the Prime Minister -- I don't want to put words in his mouth, but -- I think he shares that great sense of optimism and possibility."

I bet 2/3 of those comments of mine were caused by a Red Sox fan saying a cocky thing that ticked me off.  Plus as a Yankee fan, I can be alittle cocky, because my team always beats the Red Sox in the postseason.


Your team has beaten the Red Sox in the postseason TWICE in the history of the two franchises--1999 and 2003. The team you root for may have more championships than any other team in sports, but it also has a four-year championship drought inundated with choke jobs that nearly rival the Red Sox' past ones.

The team I root for has more championships than any other team in all of sports.  Being a fan of a team that dominates until they play in big games doesn't really qualify you to be cocky.  Qualifies as being a fan of a 86 year old choking team, but doesn't qualify you to be cocky.


Oh, my, what entertainment. You don't consider sweeping the Angels, the second best team in the AL, the hottest team in September and the team that gets more offense from their three, four and five hitters than the Minnesota Twins get from their entire lineup "dominating" in big games? That's not surprising, considering that Yankees fans seem to actually enjoy fooling themselves into believing in curses, automatic wins brought on by history and domination until they reach the pinnacle of the baseball season: the World Series.

What will you use as your excuse if the Red Sox finally do put the rabid New York chihuahua to sleep? Will you be calling for Steinbrenner to open his wallet a bit more, to mortgage away his family's future, to force the Red Sox into an even more ridiculous free agent war? These two teams are already embarrassing the sports world with their free spending, and I'm sure you'd love to see it to expand.
