    [QUOTE]Burrito - when did you become so annoying and why? Your attempts to be like Smiley are sad. At least he is somewhat original in his insanity. This crowning of the Sox which is taking place now better actually happen come Nov., 2011. If not, I fear that the Tobin Bridge will not be able to handle the weight of all the would-be jumpers.

    Jess:

    As you know, I have the ultimate respect for the Yanks.  I want them to lose every game, but realize that beating them will not be easy.  There will be moments that are nail biting no matter which team is better.  That's just the way it is.  Will I be surprised if the Yanks win the division?  Nope.  I THINK the Sox will be better, but there are a ton of variables.  I have anointed no one.  I'm just ready to get started and let it unfold.  The journey is the fun part.  Most disagree, but I really enjoyed 2010 as a Sox fan.  It was rough and frustrating.  But the team competed and that is what I demand.  The titles will come once the mindset is right.  I think the 2011 Sox will have that.  But, who knows.

    "I disagree, I think Crawford WAS the Yank's Plan B. Gardner is no way close to the player CC is. Theo's move was in part a strategic one to block the Yankees."--javaukti
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I love the way Crawford plays and goes about his business, but I remember a Yankee FO guy saying in early December, " Crawford's a better guy than Gardner, but at $500K, he's not 40 times better". I agree. Gardner is a special guy and at the money, who can argue that logic?

    St Louis isn't letting Pujols walk.  NYY are not done.  The other shoe(s) will drop

    They NYY have bridged before, they all bridge, sometimes to a WS..what do you think Swisher is? What do you think Brosius was?  SF had bridges longer than the Golden Gate.

    Thanks for bumping this thread jack-azz.... good to see that while the rest of us were looking forward to the season opener for obvious reasons you were only waiting for it to play your own game.

    The Yankees exercising restraint (granted after losing out on Lee) is something to be worried about.  If they are becoming more careful about who they sign and who they don't trade, all the while retaining the largest purse in baseball, they are merely becoming even more competitive than they already were.

    2011 may not be an 'easy' year for the Yankees.

    2012 and beyond may have just gained momentum for them however.

    I just don't see them as having 'lost' in the long run.

    Now that Hughes is down, Burnett will eventually implode - and the Yankmee's will finish in last.

    Re: Yankees Enter Their "Bridge Year,"

    Gotta give the Yankees credit.  I disagree their injuries have been as severe as ours, but do agree they have played winning baseball this year.  The trade for Ichiro was smart and should help them, plus he is always fun to watch, just a classy all around player. 

    The Sox just took 2 of 3 at Yankee Stadium, but got whipped badly in the one loss and really had to fight (and come back) to win the other two, 8-6 and 3-2.  When the Yankees came to Fenway right before the all star break, they took 3 of 4 by and large by bludgeoning the Sox pitching.
