    [QUOTE]antique I actually think Cashman learned a little from Theo and is trying to incorporate the two aspects of building a team. Kind of the way gene Michaels and Bob Watson did back in the mid -90's.

    I agree, Cashman is building for the future and it looks bright!

    It most likely is over tonight but hey, we weren't even supposed to win the division.  The Sox were, the Yankees did better than thought by most.  Am I happy its probably gonna end tonight with Burnett imploding?  No of course not but I'm happy they won the division and the Sox went home w/o seeing the postseason.  If the Yankees missed the postseason, Sox fans would be happy about that as well.

    No doubt, but in the long run this collapse--ugly and painful as it was--will end up help ing us in the long run. This team has been complacent sine 2007, and needed a a kick in the butt to wake them up. the 04 collapse didn't kill NYY, this won't kill the Sox. We'll reload and come back harder than ever next year--only this time, the complacency and entitlement will be GONE.

    I'd agree that it may help in the long run as for next year that remains to be seen but I know my boys will be right there as well.  Tampa will also be a factor.

    Oh, then I need to blame the writers for picking the Sox. When the Sox acquired Lackey(2yrs ago), Crawford, and Gonzo, I knew they were not going to win the WS. I thought they should make the playoffs, but I am still glad they did not. Now they will perhaps realize that only the Yankees brass can buy championships. It is their winning formula. The Sox got all caught up in trying to be like the Yanks. But it really bit them in the ars the last few years. Just buying athletes does not win championships, look at the Miami Heat. It takes chemistry and hard work: 2 major components the Sox lacked over the past few years. So, maybe, if lucky, management will realize that being like the Yankees does not make you the Yankees.

    Oh, by the way, the Yankees are never underdgos either. Don't sugar coat the loss, (if it happens tonight), as if they were not supposed to even be in the hunt. Honest fans admit that their team got beat by a better team rather than formulating pre-made excuses.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Yanquis lose, Yanquis lose! : Actually, I expect the Yanks to let CC walk if he opts out. NY has way too many old age "Thank you" contracts as it is. Adding another 3 years and 65 million makes zero sense to me.
    Posted by jesseyeric[/QUOTE]

    I would agree with you, that CC might just not be worth that kind of money but guys who can win and pitch well in NY are pretty rare, so that has to be considered.

     It is sort of something that I don't hear talked about that much, but outside of 2009, when he was great, CC has a very poor October track record.  He was lousy for Cleveland in 2007.  Got lit up in his 1 start for MIL in 2008.  Last year he was okay, but was hit very hard one time and never saw a 7th inning in 3 starts.  Not "ace" results.  Last night, although he was getting squeezed, when his team spotted him 2 runs against Verlander, he had the direction of this series on his arm and he let it get away.

    Of course - if Detroit wins, they were the better team. But if the Yanks comeback and win, I don't want to see one thread about payroll.

    And Yanks can certainly be underdogs. They were this year according to Vegas and they are the ones who set the odds.

    According to Capitalism the Red Sox, Yankees and Phillies don't ever get to be called underdogs.

    Fair enough. I don't ever bring up payroll jessey. I just stated that the Yankees really are the only successful team(bball organization) at what they do: spending money. The Sox thought that was the winning formula, but have recently found out it does not work that way, and Francona paid the price so far. So, I guess then the Red Sox should be next years underdogs....

    I don't see it as an either or

    pre-made excuses- sure you casn call it that

    ever since we lost out on lee & andy retired

    it was clear that the yanks would be ok in the 162

    but not in the PO unless bcash picked up a better arm

    which he never did

    so yeah if we lose that makes the tigers better but our


    pre-made excuse has merit





    why do they keep deleteing this post

    Sox farm system really looks terrible especially compared to either the Rays or the Yanks - and witnessed first hand when the injuries took their toll and the Sox had nobody on the farm that helped them out at all.  I hope they avoid trades that deplete an already weak system any further.

    I am hoping you really meant "root" and not "rot".

    I always love when a fan's team is out of contention and they gain pleasure from rooting against another team even though they have zero interest in the opposing team. I always found this strange.

    Hey jessey,
    Good to see you back!

    Of course we root against the Yanks and Rays.  Misery loves company, if we can't win the WS we don't want our division rivals to win.

    Admit it jessey, you rooted against the sox in '04 and '07.Wink

    See, I have great interest in the Sox. They are the Yanks biggest rival and during the course of a season, what better place to talk baseball than with your rivals. Makes for more interesting conversation. My rooting interests during the year is against all AL East teams. Once the post season starts, if the Yanks aren't there, I could care less. But I have only said this about a couple of hundred times here.

    I have a different stance on this. I always root against the Sox but I love the back and forth between us fans, it makes the rivalry even more interesting imo.

    Fair enough, I can respect that.  I have been following this board for about 5 years and have never known you to antagonize jessey.  You are one of the most insightful yanqee posters on here.  But as a Red Sox fan watching postseason baseball without my team present, you better believe it is sour grapes and Im rooting for our rivals to come and go fishin' with my boys, it's only fair!

    It looks like Granderson saved the day with not only the first inning game changing catch, but now the seventh inning game changing catch. Wow. Outstanding. AJ did his job and the Yankees sure look like they are headed home for game 5. Gotta love game 5s.
