In response to SFBostonFan's comment:
I am a Sox, Pats (hate NY Giants as much as Yankees) & Celtic(hate Lakers as much as the Yankees)fan first but as I live in SF Bay area I'm a SF Giant Fan, A's & 49ers fan too. Was almost as excited with Giants today as I was with Sox in 2004 winning 4 in a row vs NY as SF too was unprecedented winning in a 5 game series, 3 in opponents' park. Need for A's to also win 3 in a row although it will not be as great a feat as they are on their home field. So, if Yankees get by O's, I want A's to take them out in Div series and, if not, the SF Giants to beat NY in the world series!
By the way, football I know, but hope Pats fans are rooting for 49ers this Sunday vs NY Giants who beat them in playoffs last year and, of course, beat Pats in their undefeated season and then last year agan in the super bowl.
Sorry SF, if the Yankees have to take on the A's and the Giants after they beat Baltimore, Red Sox fans are going to have a miserable winter knowing the New Yorkers have won another WS. Oakland does not have the hitting nor the deep bullpen to beat New York and the Giants blow hot and cold. Now I would love nothing better than to see the A's keep the Yankees out of the WS, but I think Detroit would have a better chance, and, in fact, I do not want to see the Yankees in the WS at all.
[/QUOTE]I agree with you with one minor exception. Baltimore has played the Yanks tough and still might take this series. One with hardly any imagination could argue the O's should have won this series in 4 games. It will be interesting to see if Arod gets benched today. He should be.
