Slipples!

Homerun Matsui is so good. Two-run jack off Clement. 3-4 on the day. Hit-deki, you rock me.

Final update: 4-3 Yanks on a sexy homerun by Derek Jeter.

More updates: Great outing by Pavano.

And one more update: Bernie came up with the bases juiced in the fifth and hit into a 3-2-3 double play. An outfielder -- not a catcher or first baseman -- a fucking outfielder hit into a 3-2-3 DP on a non-line drive. Unnnreal.

Great game, Mariano Looper tried to lose it in the ninth, but Jeter came through...2-0 bitches.

Ortiz needs to be walked like Bonds, as Sox1918 and I have discussed...he's a monster.

But we have our own monster, and his name is Godzilla. AL MVP.

nevermind, Jeter just ruined my day. Why does he have to be so good? I'm a Sox fan through and through, but ya gotta respect the Jeter.

The Yankmes could win all 19 against the Sox this year and it wouldn't matter. These three words say it all

BIGGEST.
CHOKE.
EVER!!!

Nobody has ever choked like the overpaid bunch of NY'ers circa 2004.

Thanks JP...no truer words have ever been spoken.

Last year the Sox won 6 out of the first 7 against the Yanks, and the Yanks ended up just fine until they realized they had the gag reflex of a high school freshman and choked on it.

I'm still confident.

Goddamn Massholes...and they say New Yorkers are sore winners. If the Yanks have the biggest choke ever, the Sawx are 2-9 on the list. I'll take that trade.

What part of 26 Championships and 39 pennants don't you women get?

Sweep time: 1 pm Wednesday.

We know you won 26 rings and 39 pennants, blah blah blah. Everyone knows this because every New Yorker has pushed that down everyone else's throats for years. Can we, just for a little while, revel in our win? Just once, please?

I don't ask for much. Now that we finally got the monkey off our back, it feels as if New Yorkers are on the defensive and doing every little thing to deflate our win: calling it a fluke, saying it's 1 championship compared to 26 (when it's actually our 4th), they'll lose this year, etc.

Am I whining? I think so, and I apologize.

All Sawx fans should go back in our archives and read Donnie's and my posts after the ALCS...we were nothing but gracious, we were nothing but congratulatory. Seriously, I don't think we could have taken the loss any better.

But after a winter of insults and "Biggest. Choke. Ever." it's time to stop letting you guys revel in it. It's time to play again, the time for reveling is over.

Game on, new season, let's go. Stop cheering, it's time to play.

It's kind of hard to call anything NY does this year a "success." I mean, they're frickin payroll is $225 million. They're SUPPOSED to win. If they lose, they failed. Not only is Georgie Pie ruining the game by overpaying everyone on his roster, but there's absolutely no upside for the Yank'offs this year.

But have no fear Ace, if the Yankoffs lose this year, Georgie will give the Gnats the GNP of China for Bonds.

As for Gardzirra for MVP, I wonder why other teams haven't noticed that after you knock him on his ass (as Pedro did in the ALCS last year), he's useless for the next 15 ABs. Buzz him and he's done. Doesn't like contact.

JP, I disagree on the success thing. Just because you're supposed to win doesn't mean it won't be great to actually win.

Plus, you act as if the Sawx payroll is $50 million. I have absolutely no sympathy for Boston fans who cry about the Yankees payroll. Small market teams, sure, but the Sawx, never. That argument will not fly here.

And GREAT point on Matsui, man (unfortunately it's true)...but until they knock him down, he's gonna keep knockin' em out of the park. So you better throw at his head today...

The argument that Boston fans can't complain about payroll is only partially accurate. Yes, the Sox are one of only a handful of teams over the $100 MM mark but, unlike the Yankees, they have limits. If they didn't have limits they would have resigned Pedro for that last extra $4 MM AND signed Renteria, instead they chose one.

The Yankees, at $210 MM and counting, have no concept of a payroll ceiling. There is no either/or, and there probably won't ever be. You seem to forget quickly Ace that while the Sox payroll is higher than 28 other teams, the Yankees payroll is basically double that of the Sox.

Sox fans can't argue payroll with Twinkie fans, but with the Yankees, the argument doesn't hold water, just like there is no way that those tire marks were made by a 1964 Buick Skylark.

Not picking a fight, just sayin' it like it is.

Ace, you prove to be just a tad wiser than your compadres time and time again. It's almost uncanny. Attention Massholes: take it from a couple guys who are actually used to seeing their team succeed. You can continue to state ad nauseum what we already know about what happened last seson. No, no one can take away from you the Red Sox monumental achievement of last season (they can't). And yes, NY provided the biggest choke job in modern sports history (they did). BUT trust me - if the Red Sox don't win it all again, and especially if the Yankees have any say in it, neither the Red Sox feat nor the Yankee choke job of 2004 will provide any solace. It will sting like a bitch. Do you actually see yourself saying "at least we won last year" if 2005 doesn't result in a back-to-back? I must admit, I've seen things more pathetic come out of your state so I guess it wouldn't be a complete shock. So continue acting like the small market underdogs (which I've always found comical). I'm looking forward to seeing how this season plays out and revisiting your posts come October, should the Sox not come out on top again.

On Matsui - I completely disagree with all of you. MLB players don't get unsettled for games at a time after getting knocked down once. They just don't. No Yankee hit over the final 4 games of that series and I'm sure we can come up with excuses for all of them. This wasn't the first time in Matsui's 2 years that he was knocked on his ass, and I don't recall a single prolonged slump since he's been here. I guess we'll see what happens next time.
