Tell me about it.

All the stankee fans could do today is make up excuses as to why they lost so bad.

Face it! The achilles heal of the stankees has been their pitching and it showed last night.

As a Yankees fan I feel I have to post. (And yes punching walls when you're the #1 pitcher is a good idea. dry.gif ) The Sox have a good team this year. I give them credit. But I live in a predominantly Boston fan area. EVERYONE attacks the Yankees. They bitch about NYs payroll and how high it is while they have the 2nd highest payroll in BBall. They whine and moan over EVERY call and EVERY loss. There's always an excuse. (This is why I dislike Pedro) Frankly it's sickening. People losing happens. Sometimes you simply get outplayed. When it happens, suck it up and deal. Don't make lame excuses.

I hope the Dodgers take the series this year.....

There is one thing in common between sox and and stankee fans and what is that you might ask?

We both have very high expectations of our teams and sure we bitch and moan over every play and every game but don't you think we have the right after paying so much money to sit in a stadium that the seats are so small and the traffic is so bad and not to mention the years of dissapointment.

The stankees on the other hand are used to winning and this is why you have so many fans. As long as you win you will have a high fan base. Who would have thought the Pats would be two time superbowl champs 4 years ago? I did. But now all of a sudden the fan base has risen to an all time high, just because they win. I'm not saying thats a bad thing, I'm just saying. Stankee fans have also come to expect more from their teams, to a certain extent they are even worse then sox fans, and you also have a right to that.

So what is there to do when you can't bash your own team, bash the rival fans jester.gif

Its all in good fun, though some fans do take it a little more serious then others. Case in point, that melee in Oakland the other day. That was horrible.

I have several friends who are stankee fans and we bash each and its all in good fun. We all realize that in the end its just a game and there is no reason for the hatred we've seen.

We all know that stankees have the offense but we'll see where that offense goes when it faces better pitching.

Pedro had a horrible day yesterday. Definately a fluke.

To keep this fair I was a Yankees fan long before they ever got to the Series. I was a huge Mattingly fan and am thrilled that he may be on a World Series team this year even if it's only as a batting coach. I'll stick by the now and will still be a fan once they start losing again.

This years team has had pitching issues. Kevin Brown has been out, Mussina has underachieved, and Loiaza for Contreras was a stupid move. Quantrill, Flash, and Mariano have saved their ass on pitching.

Their offense has been weak at points and were it not for Sheffield I doubt they'd make the playoffs at all or even be close.

That said, they're hitting now. And pitching is much better. Having Tanyon Sturtze has helped an exhausted group of relievers. Hell Quantril just broke Stanton's record for most appearances by a reliever for the Yankees in a year. Sturtze is giving the others a rest and doing VERY well. And Hernandez is amazing again. Not that I'd have ever have imagined either of these 2 pulling this off.

And lastly the Yankees seem to be able to step it up in October. Guys like Williams, Rivera, Hernandez, Jeter, and Posada will pull through in big games. I don't know if the Sox have players that can pull off that same sort of thing.

BTW, Martinez's issues this year stem from a fastball that's velocity has dropped a mph or 2. That's a HUGE deal in the MLBs. And unlike other power pitchers, Pedro isn't big like Randy Johnson or muscular like Clemens and his power is going to fade with age. I don't like his attitude, but he's a hell of a player when he's on.
