    I doubt any face anyone could make would be as hilarious as Ellsbury's last night when he cost his team a run with one of the worst baserunning plays I've ever seen above the Little League level.
    Yeah, nothing says a team is "cursed" like winning 3 titles in a 10 year span. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

    On the other hand, Ellsbury did make a sliding catch to seal the win and the series 3 to 1. Close game, lucky to get the win but we'll take it. Yankees will need all the luck they can get this season.

    Both teams are going to have mediocre (by their standards) seasons. Of course, 1 is the defending champs so it certainly hurts quite a bit less.

    If you say so. Me, I'm not fooling myself into thinking that the Red Sox are not a threat, nor am I deluding myself into thinking that it will be any less painful for either team if they don't get to the playoffs or win. As you might imagine, I'm also not discounting the fact that the Yankees also have a shot and with some luck, might be able to win another.

    You might not want to take it seriously, but its true nevertheless.

    The matter of being in contention most of the time is a direct result of spending the most money every year and is no significant achievement in any sense. The favorite should ALWAYS be in contention - automatically. The favorite SHOULD win it all as they are favored to do so. So doing what you are expected to do, or having the best shot of anybody for doing it, is nothing special. And thats why when you fall short MOST OF THE TIME that is much more significant than ever winning. The FAILURE is nothing but utter failure and for the biggest spenders with the highest expectations it is significant.

    So, while you may not want to recognize that your team utterly fails MOST OF THE TIME, the rest of the sports world does and recognizes how significant it is that the team with the highest expectations and who spent the most fails MOST OF THE TIME, and simply laugh at all the Skankee fans and their self perceived greatness.

    You are completely delusional.

    If you put 100 unbiased baseball people in a room. No one would agree with you


    Utter failure = Bucky dent, Pedro Martinez .... Your "utter" list is rather extensive.... boston vs mets. Clemens shaving in locker room preparing for interview after game 6 win. Oh wait, Bill Buckner. Lmmfao

    Good god man, get a grip on what is. Lol

    Ha ha, you keep trying but its an exercise in futility.

    The Yankee failures MOST OF THE TIME are the only thing thats significant with that team.

    And, who really cares about the Sox? Decades of failure, and now they get a few rings.

    Thanks for the laughs bro, funny stuff.

    How ironic that we have a Yankee fan who has posted about OTHER teams buying a WS championship as if there is some kinda problem with it yet he celebrates the primary team in all of sports that has attempted to do the same year after year after year after year. And if that isnt enough, we get the revisionist history lesson about how the Yankee teams didnt buy any championships because they won with their core of homegrown talent., as if the rest of the roster with purchased talent from other teams homegrown talent didnt contribute. Every team has a core. Every team has homegrown talent. Every team makes trades. Every team acquires homegrown talent from other teams in various ways. BUT, every team does not year after year after year spend the most on payroll trying to buy championships.

    And you call somebody else delusionsal?

    You think somebody else is the one being laughed at?

    Even as a Yankee fan I can see and appreciate how great it was for Boston to finally win WS in 2004.
    To beat the Yankees, their tormentor for almost 100 years, coming back in an amazing way from 0-3 deficit. I didn't like it but understood its significance in baseball world. I could appreciate it for that.

    To add, for them to finally close out WS in Fenway after 95 years. I get it and enjoyed the significance of it for baseball.

    You, my friend could never do that.

    Call me when you break into double digits. Oakland says, "hi"

    The only ones being delusional are the ones who think spending 5 times more money than some of your competitors doesn't result in some sort of advantage.

    It is actually pretty remarkable how incompetent Yankees management really is, given the obscene advantage they enjoy. The same people running a $75 million payroll probably couldn't scrape together 50 wins.

    This millennium: Boston 3, NY 1. Call me when you have more titles this millennium than Florida, and when you decide to stop celebrating the glory days for the Eisenhower administration. K thx bye.

    You should be expecting a call any second Rogah. If I'm not mistaken, the Marlins have only 1 championship (2003), in the current millennium. The Yankees have two (2000 & 2009).

    Actually, going by that, they have 5 WS 13 years. Almost 40% success.



    Lol ... See abqcowboy below...duh!




    Oh lord, this is too easy! Lol


    Once again, a former Red Sox player is... Will be... The X factor this year. Thereby restarting the Red Sox torment! It's almost 2019. Time re-curse it up!

    There you have it, folks. The comparisons between Jacoby Ellsbury and Babe Ruth have begun.

    There is nothing I can say to make you look more foolish than you have made yourself look all on your own. Within 2 years (or less) you will come around and realize what the rest of us already know: The Ellsbury signing was an atrocious decision by NY. He will have a good year or two, then they will be paying over $100 million to a broken down utility player batting .273.

    So now the WS that the Red Sox bought in 2004 actually was a good thing for baseball? Dude, you are all over the place like a wave tossed to and fro. This is what happens when you try and bash other teams for doing the same thing your team does and you get exposed for the hypocrisy and revisionist history you spew.

    My goodness, I knew Skankee fans were delusional, but this takes the cake.

    This thread has gotten better than anything on Comedy Central.

    Its amazing how certain guys put up big years, like the year Ellsbury hit all the HR's and then have a huge dropoff and injuries. No roids and the dropoff in the short term. Roids in the long term does its work to the body so they are more injury prone. Not saying that a lil speed guy, slap hitter, like Jacoby was on the roids or anything. I'll leave that up to others to speculate about. But, if the shoe fits . . . . . . . . . . .

    Guy never had more than 9 HR's any season in his entire career except 1 year when he hit 32.

    So yes, that shoe fits extremely well. The Yankees were suckered into paying a fortune for what the guy did 3 years ago.

    We'll see how he does with that Yankee pixie dust. We may see a resurgence. Seems that over the years old broken down players, or guys that havent done much lately get some new found strength and energy in NY. That may have changed some with the new testing for substances tho.
