Last Year's Lessons

Can it get any worse? Who knows. Talk about the Yankees picking up games like candy. Unbelievable.

I didn't think they could play .650 ball for the second half. I was wrong. But how many of you thought they were gonna be in this position when they looked dead in June?

The only thing that gives me hope right now (and this goes for Mets fans too) is that last year's World Series teams, the Tigers and Cardinals, had rotten Septembers. So did the 2000 Yankees. If the Red Sox get into the playoffs, it doesn't matter how. Yes, it would be embarrassing if they lost the lead, but does any Red Sox fan feel like '04 is less legit because they were only the wild card winner? No.

Unless the Sox totally fall apart over the next two weeks, they're making the playoffs. October's a brand new season. This month has been brutal, and I give a lot of credit to Cashman and the Yankees - but there's still a lot of baseball to be played.

I have to give it to you: As much as you despise, you give credit where credit is due.

and I, speaking from the other side see a sweep in Tampa Bay and trouble in the Bronx for the Yankees with Toronto.

This AL East title is ours!

Beckett gets his 20 tonight and we're well on our way!

Chin up! We're in first place, not them and I'd rather be us right now looking down than the Yanks looking up!
