Explain to us again why we should take anything you post seriously?

You needn't worry about thelead because it's inevitable it will be gone. If you've been watching theYankees, you know it's a different team than the one who came into Fenway andtook the second series in as many weekends in June.
I think they match up sowell right now with the Sox that 5 of 6 remaining likley and all 6 wouldn'tsurprise me a bit as well, we've seen it done with ease before to 4 of the same5 pitchers you've still got now and Dice doesn't seem to bother them so why beconcerned.
Yet again I'm amazed thatafter stumbling out of the gate worse than I can remember, but for the thirdconsecutive year, the Sox have never nailed the coffin shut. When you guys havestumbled in April and May, season is all done and division is a wrap with nolooking back.
With the Sox it's anywherefrom 6-16 game lead at it's peak 05-07 and no matter what the lead is lost. Youguys can't play consistent baseball and year after year the Yankees play bestin MLB ball for 2nd half.
The talent was there all along,the kids (half the team now home grown, as it should be but since you've takenon the Yankee identity of 2002, it will take a few years for Theo to get it.Maybe not as he seems to be in "throw it at the wall and pray itsticks" mode with his moves.
This is why we chant"April's team" in the bleachers when you guys come in, this is whyyou still got arrogant looks from Yankees fans, and this is why no true Yankeefan was worried. Death, Taxes, and a 2nd half collapse, choke, and gag job bythe Sox regardlesss of year, players, or lead size. I'll admit it's strange,but since we here in NYC set our watches by it, we always know it's coming.
On the bright side, once youget past the all the new Choke - 07 shirts, websites, and hats you the teamwill be completely overhauled and the punchline to the big joke won't be"JD Drew, Lugo,and Dice for 230 Million!!!!!!!!!!"
All that typing and not a word of it came true, Nostradumbass.
Did you buy your "Choke 07" T-shirt yet? You know, the one with the Yankee emblem on the back?
