    Re: yankees will win it all

    This topic reminds me of the a Celtic forum with Lakers saying that they have been the better team in the past 20+ years despite Celtics having won more championships and more also vs. the Lakers.


    However, rather than saying we've had more championships lately than the New Yorkers I cite the topic "Yankees will win it all" infers this year !!!  All those teams that won championships in the past, albeit more than the Red Sox won, ain't around to win it this year.

    We are a better team this year, today, currently and athough I'm a senior citizen and appreciate what teams in various sports have done in previous years, decades etc., that is yesterday's newspaper, history etc. So, as a fan wanting to watch our team this year, presently, I'm most interested in winning this year and believe we, not the Yankees, will do so.

    Mea Culpa if I beat a dead horse but the Yankee fan may have needed some repetition for my comments to sink in !

    Or when a kid with the last name of Beckett helped defeat a certain NY team....

    Re: yankees will win it all

    In a previous post responding to us being Red Flops & Red Sux, I brought attention to 2004 which was the epitome of a team choking & flopping as we came back from 0-3 to win 4 in a row which has never been done in baseball.

    But I wish to bring to the attention of Babe, ykfan etc. the 2007 playoffs. We beat LA in the first series 3-0, a team the Yankees have had extreme difficulty with in playoffs. Then we were down 1-3 to Cleveland and Sabathia had a chance for the Indians to celebrate on their home field but he choked and Beckett didn't.  We went on to win 3 in a row and then on to beat Colorado 4-0 in the World Series.

    I also said previously that Sabathia is the Yankees best pitcher but with Beckett,  Lester performing well again---we'll see tonight and Buchholz returning, I believe we have a better starting pitching staff although the Yankees are still dangerous & very formidable offensively. One big key is to be ahead at game's end so Mariano Rivera doesn't come in to preserve a save. But, regarding fearing Sabathia, we own him !!!

    We beat him 3 times this year:  

    April 10    4-0
    May14      6-0
    June 9      8-3
                                                                                                 
                                                 
    So, it is most likely we'll face New York this year in the playoffs and the only thing I fear is based on our 8-1 team record to date and 3-0 vs. Sabathia that the law of averages could kick in a we'd lose a game or two.

    I didn't realize it was a choke, I just thought the better team won.

    It will come down to the same thing it always does.

    Who has the two pitchers who will pitch better in Money time?

    Lester and Beckett
    Sabathia and Colon
    Lincecum and Cain
    Halliday and Lee

    My money is on Halliday and Lee, but the sox have a legit shot if Beckett stays healthy...cross the fingers.

    Also, the more Colon keeps doing this the more nervous I get, because you know Sabathia will be tough in October.

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the MLB Champion is coming out of the NL in Philadelphia. Addition of Pence improved a potent lineup, now add possibly three of the top 10 best pitches in all of baseball and the Phillies are having the next parade.
