    You mean have they started to fade?  I guess so - they are 1-2 since I posted that comment, with the only win coming in Sabathia's start, who I acknowledge is a bona-fide ace.  And Brian Gordon was hit pretty hard, so yeah, 3 games isn't much of a sample size, but so far I'm looking pretty smart.

    On another note, what do you think of Hughes performance so far?  On the one hand, he's got some velocity back, but on the other hand he hasn't been too convincing against minor-league talent.  Would you bring him back into the rotation, or wait and see if he is successfull at AA / AAA?

    Kim,

    You had me fit to be tied yesterday when you questioned my fidelity, As a result, my foaming at the mouth and waving the IGNORE Card were impetuous, and a a few clarifications are in order:

    1) You were right that I did not properly comprehend an earlier post of yours a few days ago; my bad. 

    2) Regarding the bad ump calls, I only remembered the Mauer "foul ball";
    I don't even remember the Cano play; I just took your word for it that it was an improper call that went in the Yankees favor. I don't recall the play that went against the Yankees either. In general, I don't sit up at night over umpire's calls. Life is unfair.

    3) You claimed there were no bad calls in the NL series that year; I don't remember specifically, but I recall there was bad umping across the board in all the PS Series that yr. Short of an upheld protest, there shall never be replays; that would open up a Pandora's Box, and may even have repercussions legally.  In fact, bad ump calls gypped the RS ('75) and StL ('85) of WS titles. Of course, this is true in other sports as well. A couple that were notable : the '72 Olympic Mens Basketball Final (I realize this is most likely before your time.) another Olympic where there was a figure skating judge scandal, the Donaghy case in the NBA, and a football playoff game several yrs ago between the 49ers and Giants, where the commissioner complained after the fact about how it ended (Giants blew a 25 point lead in the 4th Q).

    4) If/when you dig up that article, I suggest you start a thread.

    Steve, I wonder if you really don't comprehend anything, or it's just a tactic to exhaust anyone you're debating. You completely spin everything around. You're either going to have to make up your mind to read the posts you're commenting on, or you should put me on ignore. And don't bother waving it, I wouldn't spend a second of my time worrying about who's putting me on ignore.

    Some corrections to your post:

    1) I told you that I thought, since it was your team, you knew about the umpires being fired because of playoff calls in 2009. I have no idea what "questioned your fidelity" means. If anything, it means the complete opposite of what I said.

    2) You didn't comprehend two of my posts -- even though you quoted them. And now I can add a third. I put the articles up about the umpires being fired, and one of the articles described all the plays.  So, I don't know why you're saying you were taking my word for it about the Cano play.

    3) I said as far as I know I didn't think the National League had the same problem -- meaning no umpires were fired for bad calls. Again, calls SO bad they were FIRED for them.

    As far as the story goes, I could do the obvious thing and just get in touch with him and ask him for it again. However, I'm not sure I want to tell him I need it again because I'm arguing with some guy on a message board. I'd much rather find it myself.  As I've said, I have absolutely no doubt it was the truth as he was a bit of a baseball historian. It's difficult because I don't remember the year. He called it one of baseball's biggest secrets, but even when you google that, there are many other secrets, apparently. I don't believe it should be impossible to find -- especially since he had it, and gave it to me.

    Yes, it is all I have.  Unfortunately, the argument that the Sox beat the Yankees 8 of 9 is getting old.  And although it makes the Sox 2 games closer to having the tie breaker if one should be needed, it really does not mean much going forward.

    And while everyone is going back and forth about Sox and Yankees, last year's division winners are within a few games of first place.   You Yank fans should be on the Rays board, bugging them.

    I agree we’re exasperating each other. Maybe, just so that you and I don’t constantly annoy and/or waste each other’s time, maybe it’s better if we don’t bother with each other. As a general rule, I am NOT into the art of deceptions, manipulations, clever omissions, etc. I’m at fault for reading posts quickly, and I’ve decided to slow it down. As far as my spinning, this is a combination of the fact that different people often disagree, compounded by our different loyalties, and the resulting combative posturing. Heck, we can't even agree on who's on this board.

    Some corrections to your post: 1) I told you that I thought, since it was your team, you knew about the umpires being fired because of playoff calls in 2009. I have no idea what "questioned your fidelity" means. If anything, it means the complete opposite of what I said.

     Actually, I didn’t know they were fired; I heard something about how they might be replaced. As far as “questioned my fidelity”, perhaps it was bad terminology, it was the honesty issue; I should have said “questioned my integrity”

    2) You didn't comprehend two of my posts -- even though you quoted them. And now I can add a third. I put the articles up about the umpires being fired, and one of the articles described all the plays.  So, I don't know why you're saying you were taking my word for it about the Cano play.

    I skipped the articles. Again, my bad, resulting in miscommunications that are my fault. I’ll check again. I can’t do it right now.

    3) I said as far as I know I didn't think the National League had the same problem -- meaning no umpires were fired for bad calls. Again, calls SO bad they were FIRED for them.

    My fault again, if that’s what you said. I’ll slow my post reading down.

    As far as the story goes, I could do the obvious thing and just get in touch with him and ask him for it again. However, I'm not sure I want to tell him I need it again because I'm arguing with some guy on a message board. I'd much rather find it myself.  As I've said, I have absolutely no doubt it was the truth as he was a bit of a baseball historian.

    That’s up to you if you want to pursue it. Do you know what periodicals he’s worked for?

    Kim

    I read the article; and I made a mistake. I DID read the article several days ago (hence a re-read), but overlooked the Cano line, which came and went like a whiff (No pun intended). Sorry about that, I tend to skim. So my "smoking gun" comment was based on reading the article, and then forgetting I read it, and skimming to boot, causing all kinds of domino effect related mis-communications and accusations. Once again, my fault for causing aggravation for both of us. However, I still think you made this article much ado about not that much. (Shakepeare would not be happy). I still don't think this is a smoking gun; we shall see what this forthcoming article says (Assuming you find it), and if it's got good stuff, I'll admit it. I agree though, don't bother this guy just because you're debating someone on a silly sports board.

    kim, those umps may have been fired for poor calls but it doesn't prove your story about the umpires being told to favor the Yanks because it's better for baseball when they are in the playoffs. In fact, they were already in the playoffs when those calls occurred.
