that the NY Yankees are the only team that could win 95 games despite losing the best closer in history, their #2 stud pitcher, the best defensive LF in the game who is an OPB machine and be labeled as "in trouble" for next year by the media.

Good god man, Yankee fans will spin shit any way they can these days.  There is no way to justify paying these choke artists to fail in the playoffs like they did.  Especially, when its mostly small market teams that are winning these days.  Yankees have to adapt.

I'm not spinning anything.  I just listened a member of the baseball media explain how the red sox are in a better position for success than NY, at this very moment.

Explain what you mean by adapt and we'll go from there.

red sox in better shape, i can't see that in any way except if your considering money as success and not a world championship. yankees overspent and got eliminated. redsox dumped payroll and stunk it up under bobby valentine just as i knew they would. whoever left that guy back in the country no less the major leagues  anyway?

juan marichal and warren spahn once hooked up in a 16 inning scoreless duel which ended in the bottom of the 16 th with a willie mays hr. juan threw 234  pirches so much for pitch counts.

i think mccarver might be losing it a little he confused barry manilow with barry bonds in last nights world series telecast.than laughed about it for a long time before joe buck slapped him back to his senses.

did you know that pete rose actually broke the record for career his two hits earlier. upon further research they took two hits away from ty cobb so his new total was 4189 hits instead of 4191. this also cost cobb his 12 th batting title and lowered his career avg from 367 to 366 still numero uno in that category. ;D
