Here come the Sox knocking at your door baby!
The Sox have shaved 7.5 games in 15 days at this rate we would need about another week to overtake First Place.

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.

|even though the yanks have show thier weakness is their pitching (come on we knew that all along) the red sox will still blow it.....i dont care if its 20-1 in the bottom of the 9th in the 7th game of the world series and they are playing a team of blind kids......they will still manage to lose....(i am not a yankees fan...just realistic)|

|As a Yankees fan I feel I have to post. (And yes punching walls when you're the #1 pitcher is a good idea. ) 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. |

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
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.

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.
