    Yes, it does. Though I will admit that I told my Yankee fan girlfriend that I'd be surprised if the Yanks didn't win at least 4 out of 5. That's how much confidence I have/had in my Red Sox's pitching staff.

    As a Mets fan I'd like to congradulate the Yanks on a great sweep and the A.L. East.

    Does anyone know if this has ever happened before. Yanks sweeping a 5 game series at Fenway?

    The last time it happened was, I believe, in September of 1943.

    I get the feeling it's in the books. 6 and a half games up, we're getting Matsui and Sheffield back, and Dotel is healthy now. I just got that feeling it's ours. You can probably tell they had to watch out for the people on the Green Monster, looking for any jumpers.
    God damn I love my Yankees.

    Suck to be a Sox fan .. Congrat to Damon and Abreu for a great series ..


    Our pitching sucks .. Sox need a closer that will not give up 3 runs in the 9th

    I wouldn't be so quick with Matsui, Melky has been playing great! he's a good bat, very fast on the bases, and has a very strong arm. you're right though, it feels like the pieces are starting to click into place

    I thought this thread was referring to a few years ago, when the Yankees blew a 3 game lead in the playoffs to let Boston eventually win the World Series, and get rid of the curse.

    This was definately ugly for the Sox. Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe said it best in naming the series "Son of the Boston Massacre". For anyone who doesn't know, baseball's "Boston Massacre" happened in 1978 when the Yanks swept the Sox in a 4 game series by obliterating them in 3 of the 4 games.

    Actually, that was a market adjustment. 26 Championships vs. 1 Championship seems about good to me.

    By the way, your you actually born when the Mets last won a title?

    What this series proved was Yankees suck alot less than Sox. Neither of these 2 teams is going anywhere this year. Neither are the Mets for that matter with Glavin gone and Pedro hurting.

    Congrats to the Yankee fans on the board, you guys are the only ones I know who didn't want the team to implode and just start over.

    Good for you guys. Here's hoping we get a Subway Series!

    The closer is not the problem. It's every other pitcher in that bullpen.
