    In Response to Re: Monday Game Thread: Sox @ Orioles : Hmmm... I think 86 was worse. Two out, two run lead in the clinching game of the WS, then Carter, Mitchell, Knight, Mookie, Buckner. That was worse than this, but this could be second.

    That was different because it was a team no one expected to be there - against the best team in baseball - and they lost the WS in 7 games.

    This is the best team in baseball absolutely collapsing under the pressure of playing the Orioles in September.

    Ozzie Gullien was really traded for two minor league players? I thought it was a joke, but no. Salt ok. X rays negative.

    No it hasnt been. Nyy have won more by spending money than anyone else ever. It's just not as easy as it was 15 years ago when nyy were doing it. Revenue sharing, etc. If nyy have learned anything different, they learned it from Boston, cash said so himself the other day. If the sox have troubles, it's because theyve done what nyy used to do, and It's not a fit for them.

    You should check you facts, 15 years ago the Yankees, Indians, Angels, Red Sox, White Sox, Toronto were all within several million Dollars of one another.  As for the Yankees learning anything from the Red Sox, that would be taking a flier on Re-treads like Bartolo Colon, Freddy Garcia, Andruw Jones.  Seems to have worked out a lot better for the Yankees, then it ever had for the Red Sox. In reality, this practice has been around for years.  Look no further then the 1995 Indians, Dennis Martinez, Orel Hershiser, Eddie Murrey, Dave Winfield.  If you really want to go back the Cards won the 1926 World Series against the Yankees by signing several washed up vets, Grover Cleveland Alexander being one of them .

    Among other things, we could use a first-rate catcher.  I don't get the love affair with Salty.  He's average defensively and hitting under .240.  In a clutch situation against Mo Sunday night he takes two hittable strikes and then whiffs on a low inside slider or cutter.  He was an easy mark again last night, striking out meekly with the bases loaded.  What's the big deal?  He's 6'4" and a switch hitter? 

    It seemed that Beckett was tiring around the 5th when he lost command, throwing a lot of high pitches and first pitch balls.  Nothing happening in the bullpen though.  Then the Orioles broke through.  Disgusting.

    Still, there's just no clutch hitting outside of Ellsbury.  This was the last-place Orioles.  Again.
