Beckett should NOT go Game 6. With Pettitte taking the mound the Marlins should concede that this will only ever go to a game 7 and that is when you will need Beckett. The stage is set for Pettitte to win a low scoring game 6, maybe 2-1, thanks to Rivera coming in to seal this and go to game 7. Unless the Marlins have their stud going in 7 there is NO WAY the yanks lose a game 7 world series in the Bronx. No way. Then all we'll hear is how resiliant this team is, blah blah blah, how gutsy, blah blah blah, never say die, blah blah blah, the mystique, blah blah blah. Meanwhile Queer Eye outscores the world series in tv ratings as this yawnfest grinds to a climax of paint-drying proportions.
And yes JonE, tailgators, GJ&H, I am a bitter Red Sox fan right now. Don't bore us with highlighting the obvious. Just get this over with and give me the damn return on my yanks to win series $100 bet.
Btw, I used to think Red Sox fans were fickle but here is last week in yankee eyes:
Thursday am: we suck. Torre stinks. Giambi is useless.
Thursday pm/early Friday am: we are awesome! Torre is the man. Giambi is clutch! Hooray! We're untouchable!
Saturday pm: what happened? We had no desire. Booo!
Monday am: Ha ha! There we go, we rule, what passion the yanks have. Hooray!
Tuesday pm/early Wed am: told you. The yanks are the best. Torre is legend, we're great!
Early thursday am: What the hell is Torre thinking!!? Weaver sucks! Giambi sucks, Soriano sucks! Boooo.
Thursday pm: David Wells can kiss my ass, and so can Torre, Giambi, and Soriano. We're vulnerable.
Cue yankee game 7 win and cries of "I knew all along!!", and "never doubted the yanks for a second!"
But actually. After a yankee loss in the post season you guys are very quiet. The silence after lastnight is very loud. I still think you guys will do it. And why? Because as much as it pains me, you guys are resiliant, gutsy and there is a mystique to the yanks in the bronx during a world series.
