Top Ten Yankee Despiser Moments in 2004

(10) Big mid-season acquisition: Estaban Loaiza. (And not getting Randy Johnson.)

(9) Derek Jeter’s 0-for-32 slump in April.

(8) Mets sweeping Yankees at Shea in July.

(7) Red Sox sweeping Yankees at Yankee Stadium in April.

(6) Bill Mueller’s walk-off home run off Mariano Rivera to win that wild game in Fenway, on July 24th.

(5) Kevin Brown punches wall, breaks hand, misses a month.

(4) David Ortiz’s extra-inning walk-off home run in Game 4 of ALCS.

(3) David Ortiz singles in Johnny Damon to win Game 5 of ALCS in extra innings.

(2) Indians 22, Yankees 0.

(1) Red Sox overcome 0-3 deficit to beat the Yankees in the ALCS 4-3. Enough said.

Best thing about the Junkees' choke is that it'll make the fans forget that awful Yankee sweep of the Sox in late June/ early July that featured David Ortiz doing a Bill Buckner imitation, Curt Leskanic blowing a game, and a Derek Jeter dive into the stands that the Yankee fans didn't shut up about for the longest time.

After The Choke, no more talking about Jeter's catch! Awesome!
