HAHA!!! I love it! The Yankees totally embarassed themselves; They were 3 outs away from sweeping the Red Sox and they couldn't pull it off. Way to blow it guys, lol.

And Mx330, it will be the Astros and Red Sox, not the Cardinals and Red Sox...

Hey, Yanksn4 and Jcs17? I know you were up? Afraid to come on here, lest you might break down and cry?  Laugh out loud

Falcon, they won't be on here talking about the Yanks till next April, although I would like them to try and explain what happened.

I almost cried when the grand slam was hit. The fucking, P.O.S. Yankee bullpen was absolutely worthless as usual. I'd like to give a big 'fuck you' to Kevin Brown for being an absolutely worthless human being. Fuck! I'm gonna go have a few drinks and open up my wrists...

And, oh yeah, Boston, you still suck. You worthless bunch of dirty Irish  Big grin , I hope you savor it, losers. Your city sucks--its a fucking hole, your team sucks, and if the Yankee bullpen wasn't as worthless--Johnny Damon would be getting a conciliatory blow from Varitek.

Ok, I'll try. I really have no idea, but I'll try.

I think that the Yankees bats got complacent after Game 3 (which is understandable from the Devil Rays, say, but not from the Yankees). The pitching was there. El Duque was great. Mussina was brillinat. I think the bullpen (as has been the usual case for the Yanks in recent years) cost them the series by blowing games 4 and 5. I don't fault guys like Sturtze and Loaiza who actually lost the games, because anything can happen in extra innings, but Gordon and Rivera (yes, Rivera) are the main reasons for this one. Once it got to 6 and Schilling pitched the masterpiece he did, you just had this sinking feeling. I also think that Olerud being hurt was a big part of it. He was pretty clutch, and Tony Clark was not.

Finally, the breaks just didn't go the Yankees' way this time. If Tony Clark's hit had bounced just a bit differently and not gone into the stands in Game 4, Sierra would have scored, the Yankees would have won, and I wouldn't be sitting here trying to figure out the biggest collapse in history. If the ball that tied game 4 in the 9th for the Red Sox (I think it was Mueller that hit it) had been a few inches over, it gets caught by Rivera, the Yankees sweep, and once again I am not trying to figure out the worst loss ever. And before you even think about blasting me for it, A-Rod's slapping in Game 6 was not a break that did not go the Yankees' way. It was the right call.

And so the season ends extremely ungloriously. I won't lie about it, I am about as depressed as I have ever been about a loss since Game 7 of the 2001 World Series. This one is going to sting for a long, long time. In fact, it'll sting until we beat the Red Sox again. But there's nothing that can help it now. The Sox move on, and they deserve it. They never gave up, and as much as I dislike them, I'll admit that they flat-out outplayed the Yanks when it counted. And if it came down to a Bush vs. Kerry World Series, I might just have to swallow my pride and side with Kerry.

Now, there are a lot of moves that can be made over the off-season. Now is not the time to go into them, but I hope that Steinbrenner doesn't overreact. Hopefully he'll learn that it's pitching that wins championships. If this series wasn't a show of that, I don't know what is - the Red Sox would not have won without their pitching. It was good when it had to be. There's a certain guy out there with the initals RJ that I would love to see coming to the Bronx for 2005.

So that's my take on it. I too would be interested in hearing what Yanksn4 thinks about this. I haven't seen a post from him in a while on the subject, and even I'll say that after all the winning that we have enjoyed of late, for him to not stand up and take the shaming after a series like this is pretty much cowardly.

Jcs, sounds like we both need a little "Yankee fan rehab" after this one.

Say what you want, Jcs, but we won and you...LOST! End of story!

As a dedicated Cubs fan, I can say I was going for the Sox the whole time and am incredibly happy they won. I am one of those Chicago people who figures "if we can't make it, we want Boston to"...I hope they win it all...but then we will be the only team with a curse  Sad  Wink/being sarcastic

Home for the Yankees in post-season isn't so good for them lately. They lost the World Series last year to my beloved Marlins - AT HOME and now they couldn't close out the Sox TWICE AT HOME. I guess Steinbrenner is going to have another tough off-season (cry me a freakin' river)!  Big thumbs up  Big thumbs up  Big thumbs up

Well Done, Sox! (Now, anyone want to make any predictions on when they will choke in the Series?)

Did anyone else hear some of the EXCUSES the broadcast team was making the last of the 8th and in the 9th! Face it, if Steinbrenner's "all-star" team can't play a solid game (they had four games to win ONE ), then boo-hoo. Now, let's go Cards! That will be an interesting series. A Houston - Boston series would be boring.
