    better minds than ours suggest that you are what your record says you are. half way through, they are what they are. dogfight to the end. wishing and praying and insisting that freddie and colon are going to do a spectacular crash and burn is silly. if they stay healty, they will win 30 between them. they can still pitch. "If" is not important here. it is halfway through the season and they are both getting ready to pitch their next start in less than a week. just like beckett and lester. keep wishing for their demise, but as a tool for debate, it is weak. their records have more integrity than what you hope happens to them.

    No, you hope these things. The fact remains that the Yanks rotation is putting up better numbers than the red flops, whether that changes or not remains to be seen. Until then the facts are the facts.

    [QUOTE]All of the sports anlysts, writers, Sports Illustrated, ESPN, the list goes on and on. Even many of the Yankee reporters agreed that the Sox are the team to beat in the AL. Every single one of them, I am sure hundreds in all, are wrong.  The Sox aren't the best team, but the Yankees are. Do you see how absurd you Yankee fans sound?  The Yankees aren't a bad team, and the Sox have a few injuries waiting to heal.  But, when both teams are fully healthy and at their peak, it is ridiculous to say the Yankees have better team.   Virtually nobody in the sports world, including many of your hometown writers, felt that Yankees were better. But, I understand you guys making your statements.  Enjoyng things while you can.  For deep down inside, although maybe too proud (or just plain too stupid) to admit it, the Sox have the better team.  Hundreds of professional and "unbiased" baseball people aren't going to be wrong to the few idiotic Yankee posters that here are on these boards.  So, enjoy it while it lasts.

    The Yanks have more players on the DL than the sawx, so they should get better as players heal as well.

    And just because your so called "professional and unbiased" people picked the red flops to be better doesn't mean they are better.

    How many of those "professional and unbiased" baseball people picked the giants to win it all last year?

    I don't have to back anything up. Many posters in here know the exact threads I'm talking about. Just because you want to deny their existence doesn't mean jack. Most of the threads from spring training that contained these predictions are not even here any more. But if it makes you feel better you can continue to live in denial.

    "sigh" just another wonderfully entertaining day of Babe in Soxland. Hey, that could be the title of a pretty good book. do some research and get some of the more totally off the freaking wall quotes and responses and off to a publisher it goes.

    so right now were in a slide and yet are only a game and a half behind the current 1st place team. if there is any fan out there that honestly believes that the red sox are not going to rebound and go on a hugh run, well, I bridge for sale in brooklyn that I'll sell you real cheap.

    right! but the thing that both of you fail to realize is that this is A RED SOX BOARD! We can discuss and post what ever the hell we want to because this is our board. I think that you both must surely know that there is not a single red sox fan in here that purposely goes to a Yankee Fan Board and spews the type of crapp that you guys do. I know I sure as hell don't. I wouldn't be caught dead posting on a NYY message board.

    They don't hand out trophies for being the AL East leader at the All Star break either.I'm not worried about "midpoint",I'm more concerned with the end of the season.

    So your position is that for the remainder of the season, Garcia is more likely to pitch like he has in the past 85 innings than he has in the previous 2000.  Pitching in the AL East in a hitters park, he will have his best season in a decade, and will stay injury-free for only the second time in five years.

    I don't hope these things - there's nothing better than a Red Sox vs Yankees playoff series.

    You're right - if Colon and Garcia stay healthy and out-pitch Lester & Buchholz, then they will win the division.  And the monkey flying out of my butt can start game 4 of the ALCS.
