Shouldn't you be a little more worried about the Yankees being down 4-0 5-0 6-0 in the 7th with Randy Johnson looking like he's about 100 years old, than the Twins?

Well, I guess our weaknesses finally caught up with us.

I would have loved to see a post-season with Santana, a health Liriano, and a healthy Radke, but what can you do?

Our hot bats got us into the Central Division title, and then unforunately, the lack of those same hot bats killed us.   :'(

Humph.  **** look at that.  Yeah I guess I probably should have been.  Guess we're gonna have to do this the hard way and go through Bonderman tomorrow before we torch Robertson again in Game 5, and get started on the A's.

Quoted for posterity (and hilarity):

But still and all, we don't need ARod.  We're winning the World Series this year with or without him hitting.

I do think ARod's numbers warrant him being taken in the 2nd half of the Round One still:

.284   34 HR   117 RBI   108  Runs   14  SB

Also, let's not forget that he is the reigning AL MVP.  When the Yankees win the World Series a month from now as well, I think he'll be relaxed and put up slightly better numbers.  Hell, he'll have an MVP and a Championship, what else do the fans want?

Quote
It all depends who the Mets run into in the post-season.  If they run into the Astros and have to face Clemens-Oswalt-Pettitte, the Mets can forget about the World Series.  Nobody else is going to stop them, in my opinion.  That is, until they meet the Yankees in the World Series and get stomped.

Quote
No one else wants to try their hand at mapping out the outcome of the playoffs?


They just scanned the Tigers dugout on FOX at the start of this game, and honestly, they all already look beaten to me.  Glassy eyes and looks all around.  I think they felt beat as soon as they failed to win the division and found out they got the Yankees round 1.  Tigers have lost 31 of their last 50 or something close to that.


The Yankees are going to thrash these punks.

Quote
Wow, Mets and Yanks eliminated and Padres in the Series.  That's the first I've seen of it's kind.  Interesting.  What's the rationale there?  How's the Yankee offense juggernaut gonna be knocked out?

Quote
Their offense is absolutely breathtaking.  They were first in the major leagues with 5.7 runs/game.  And that was without  Sheffield and Matsui.

Our #9 hitter finished 3rd in the AL batting race.

Our top 3 pitchers are Wang (19 wins) Mussina (15 wins) and Johnson (17 wins).

Our closer is the best in the history of baseball.

There are no problems.  We're gonna steamroll to a championship, definitely the overwhelming favorite.

Quote
Um, they lost a game.  Big whoop.  Probably will be the only one of the series.  If they drop a second game, you'll see me nervous.

Quote
Guess we're gonna have to do this the hard way and go through Bonderman tomorrow before we torch Robertson again in Game 5, and get started on the A's.

And here's the sig, which is now mysteriously MIA:

Quote
Murderer's Row.  And Cano.

11  10  9  8  7  6  5  4  3  2  1  New York Yankees win their 27th World Series Championship

My team wasn't even supposed to be in the post season and the only reason they were was because of stellar pitching down the stretch.  What worried me is #1 Liriano was out and #2 that the last three weeks of the season their bats were MIA...still I was pleased they at least made it to the post season...

But this...this is just priceless.  The highest payroll in baseball could not buy another championship yet again.  These were the 2nd coming of murderers row.  Wow...they won nothing yet again.  I love it...


Don't Cry George, that $200 Million got you just as far as the Twins!


Joe, Joe, Joe...so many players, so few postseason wins in the last 6 years


The highest paid #8 hitter in history!


Still better than Brett "The Wife Beater" Myers


Cory Lidle doesn't like what he smells coming from the Yankees dugout


Hideki is wondering how they made it to the postseason without him


Jeter tries to comfort Randy's bad tummy yesterday (too many hot wings the night before)

Hey, hey, hey, now!  It bought a ninth-consecutive AL East championship, buddy, and that's nothing to sneeze at!

First off, congrats to the Tigers.  Boy, they sure did have that look of terror in their eyes.  I'm amazed they even won one game against the greatest offensive line up the likes of which no one has ever seen. ::)  Looks to be a great ALCS that will probably go 7 games.  Two very evenly matched teams.

And now back to your regularly scheduled Yankee bashing:
