This is great stuff.

Think I'll call some familiy and friends up in Bean Town today:D

Bound to be a somber group up there, the Red Sox annual collapse is in full bloom:p

So how can you have the best record in baseball and still have collapsed?

Saying the Red Sox collapsed is selling your own teams accomplishments pretty short.

this is so sad, you could sense the Sox demise last Friday against the Yankees, and then the nail on Sunday. I gotta pick another team to support, supporting the RedSox is emotionally draining with little reward.

i guess i will start routing for the Mets. (anyone but the Yankees)

....

Saturday was good though......4 of the 6 games they just played against each other were close, so we'll see what happens in the playoffs.

Well, it'll never be as painful as it was in 03 or as good as it was in 04 again.

All the Met fans around here are running for cover. Now the question is

Who is going to drop out of First place First?

1) The Red Sox (The sense of Doom Friday Night at Fenway was classic)

2) The Mets (ahh their the Mets)
M-E-T-S = My-Entire-Team-Stinks

but what you don't seem to grasp is that this is normal. even in '04 there was the post-all star break slide. it happens every single year.

i mean when would you prefer your team to have a little slump? when they're in first place towards the end of the season or in the playoffs? the sad thing is, the yankess team is so old that this is the best they can possibly do.

It happens with every first place team in baseball except when the Yankees and Braves are doing well.

How about January when they're on the golf course?

1) I grasp it, and firmly enjoy it every year:)

2) ?????
Yankess average age is 28.9 years old;)

Mets average age is 31.0 years old:confused:

Red Sox average age is 30.8 years old:hmmm:

I'm a Yankees fan but...do they have a pair of 4 year olds on the roster to bring that average down or something? :)

The old thing is a Myth probably started by a Met fan.

The Yankees have alot of young guys on the roster, and next year there are going to be more young kids being promoted from the farm system.

I remember in 03, going to the airport after the infamous Pedro debacle. I was wearing a RedSox hat and at least a half dozen people came up to me in the airport to express their condolences. I could tell, they truly felt bad for me. I couldn't respond to their sympathy as I lost my voice yelling at the TV the night before.

isn't there a cliche about this management style: something like throwing a bunch of shit around to see what sticks....that is, of course, when managment plan number 1, buying every all star fails.

Oh come on. There are still plenty of all-stars left for the Yankees to buy!

i'll buy all of them except jorge 'rat boy' posada. he's hardly an all star. sure, he's solid but hall of fame? nah.

also, how you can call 'the most expensive team in baseball' trying to buy their championships a myth is beyond me. did you forget about a-rod?

Hey Jake; "You Gotta Spend Money to Make Money"

btw = I can't stand A-Rod either. But.. from a business stand point it was the best decision, King George ever made.

Since he got A-Rod, every freaking home game is sold out. Prior to A-Rod, what did they draw 2 million? Now 4 million annually is normal. Also isn't Texas still paying part of A-Rod's salary?
