I Wish It Was Yanktober (TM)
Sunday, October 21, 2007
It seems like it's been 6 months since the Rockies secured their spot in the World Series, but today the American League finally found a team to play them. The Sox beat the Tribe (there are so, so many politically incorrect Indian-related jokes a lesser person could choose to insert here, but I shall, as always, take the high road...) to win the AL pennant, and while I still don't think the Red Sox were the best team in baseball throughout the season (what the hell happened to the Angels? Or the Mets?!) I tip my hat to them - they pulled through when it counted.

The series doesn't actually start until Wednesday (is it just me or has this post-season been going on since approximately 1978?), and even though the Yanks are sadly not a part of the action/satisfaction I am actually really looking forward to the series - it has all the makings for a drama-filled finale. There are a few things we can count on: Beckett will be Boston's ace, Francis will go for the Rockies, Troy Tulowitzki's name will be really hard to spell, etc etc, but other than that a lot of things will be up in the air (insert stupid "Colorado has thin air" joke here for me, I'm too tired). The Rockies have been the great underdogs of the year - scrappiness, $2 paychecks, and Coors - and the Sox have been, well, the new Yankees - old dudes, cash, and cigars - so it will be quite the contrast of teams. My money is on the Rockies - they capitalized on the Rocktober pun before the Sox could.

    "while I still don't think the Red Sox were the best team in baseball throughout the season"

    Where to start. They WERE the best team during the regular season because they had the best record. You an argue they weren't the most talented, but the only way you can measure who the best was THROUGHOUT the season is by wins. Not the first 3 months, not since the allstar break, but the entire season.

    It's a hunch but wins and losses is probably a better measure than your opinion, and having read your site for a while, that's being kind.

    Raw data seems to prove otherwise, as does the flag pole where the AL Pennant is flying this morning.

    ... and before I forget - yankees suck.

    It still can be Yanktober.....if you still live in your mother's basement (and all of you Yankee fans do!)

    You can then Yank it every month from here on out!

    I told you Chickers!

    Sox in 7. The BEST TEAM in BASEBALL DOES IT AGAIN!

    THE AMERICAN LEAGUE CHAMPIONS 2007!

    and If you think the Rockies have a chance in hell....then you're still living in your dream world, like you have all year long!

    My 9 yr old daughter (that's right I have a daughter, and a son, I'm not as young as y'all think) always says it best: Red Sox RULE, Yankees DROOL.

    She seems to have ya there!

    The Sox were good enough the first two months to carry them through, but they nearly blew a 14.5 game lead.

    Best team in April and May? Yes. Best team in the Postseason? Possibly, but not the hottest.

    Best team June-September? No.

    The nearly infinite expanse of the universe would seem to dictate that there must be other lifeforms out there, no matter how removed from Earth. Similarly, the endless mass of Red Sox fans would seem to dictate that there must be a few of them out there possessing class and dignity, no matter how far removed from the internet or this website.

    "Best team June-September? No."

    Which means absolutely NOTHING. You never hear anyone in the NFL say "well, we were the best football team weeks 4 through 8".

    It's baseball. It's a long season. One reason the yankees played so well towards the end is that they had to. They knew that had to play lights out to make the playoffs. Boston didn't, and they cruised.

    You really should learn more about baseball before trying to write about it rebecca.

    Nearly is the key word in the above statement - is that like "almost" drowned? What does being the best team in baseball, being pregnant and drowning have in common? Answer - either you are or you aren't. Nearly doesn't mean shit.

    ... and adrian, you ain't as cool as you think you are - go to school in some other city if you can't handle the red sox fans.

    The problem with going to school in another town is that Beantown happens to have the best schools. I just wish I could wear my hat to a bar without getting spit in my beer.

    I'd also like to point out that the difference between the Yankees scrubbing out and the Sox in the WS is precisely the difference between a 5 and a 7 game series. Both teams were down 3-1. I'd love it for the division series to expand to seven games -- I'm all for more baseball on TV.

    For the record, Red Sox I like: Ellsbury, Lowell, Ortiz, Varitek, Wakefield. Classy guys, all.

    Jesus, looks like you got more sox fans reading your blog than Yankees fans. But all they seem to be able to do is say "nope...your wrong...nope NO NO!! -covers ears- lalalala!!!!" Rox in 4 baby, get over it Sox fans.

    I've been posing this question to a lot of Yankee experts and had little to no response, so hopefully I can get your take on it. I understand needing to fill the holes for potentially departing A-rod, mo, and finding a new manager to replace Torre, but if Posada leaves, who do the Yankees have in mind? It's been said through-out the year that Posada is their most irreplaceable player, so how to they tend to replace him if he doesn't like what the Yankees offer?
