    Don't make me laugh (116 times).
    The record to beat was 125 wins, not 116 wins. Yes, Sweet Lou, your Mariners are going home, as you predicted. They just won't be suiting up!
    I repeat what I said before. The Oakland A's are the second best team in the American League and were the toughest challenge for the Yankees on their way to the World Series.
    Seattle was no match for the best team in the American League when it counted. It's not how you drive, but how you arrive.
    I now look forward to a very interesting World Series.

    I hate New York even more. The most smug and over payrolled team in baseball. Everything about the Yankees is what's wrong with pro sports today. The team with the most money comes out on top. Should I bring up the example of the championship the Marlins bought a few years back?
    May the Diamondbacks spank the Yankess so hard, they run home with crap on their faces. [​IMG]

    Yes the poor old Mariners were no match for the Yanks. I said back during the season that they had no overwhelming pitching or big time batting lineup which is what you need in the post season.
    But, having said that, I also hate the Yankees and their store-bought team. I hope Schilling and the Unit pitch 6 of the seven games and stick it to Steinbrenner.

    I've said it before and I will say it again. Fair weathered fans are a dime a dozen. Where were you RAF when the Yanks were down 0-2 to Oakland? Poor Robert Crawford was the only real Yankees fan that would even post back then. A real fan sticks his neck out even when they are losing.

    If what allows the Yankees to win year after year continues, Major League Baseball will be completely destroyed. Overall attendance will continue to fall into the toilet and the sport will die.
    In this case, I am somewhat glad to see the Yanks win because I pity NYC after recent events, and I am happy to see something bring them together in a positive way. The other reason I am somewhat glad is that I was sick of hearing LOUDMOUTHED braggart Mariners fans for the first half of the season. Best team ever? Keep dreaming.
    That said, Yankees fans also could use a dose of humility and reality. Get over yourselves! [​IMG]

    I'm from Boston and I'm a long time Red Sox fan so what I'm about to say should have a bit of weight...
    The Yankees are to be admired and respected for all that they have acomplished in the 1990's and early 21st century. They know how to win, not only on the field but all the way up to the owner. Say what you want about them but when push comes to shove the Yankees know what to do to keep standing till the end. The Red Sox had either the highest or second highest payroll in baseball this year and where did it get them? They're the laughingstock of the majors right now. Management has set the franchise up fail while the likes of Pedro, Nomar, and Manny waste the prime of their careers. Think that George would let that happen?
    As for my Sox....Let's go Patriots!

    Hey, I'll back it up by throwing these comments out there from a die hard Oakland A's fan. I have to give the Yanks credit for coming back down 0-2 in the A's series. I didn't think they could do it and they did. I hate them, but hey, they can play.
    On ther other hand, I'm sick of people defending their payroll with facts that other teams with a higher payroll didn't do so well. Check the facts. Over the last 10 years, the teams with the some of the highest payrolls have dominated baseball playoffs and World Series wins. And it's only getting worse. There are teams out there that now start the season...cough...Montreal...cough....that know they don't have a chance. None. And that's bad for all of baseball. And the Yankees are the 400lb gorilla in that department.
    ...and don't get me started when the signed Canseco last year as a "backup pinch hitter" to Glen Allen Hiil. Why? Not because they needed him, but because Seattle and Oakland needed him. Another example of how Yankee $$$ kills baseball...

    Ah, RAF, humble in victory, humble in defeat. Oh wait, I haven't seen him in defeat yet. Ah well, one of these years...
    I have to admit, I agree with RAF on something related to baseball (did the Earth just go careening out of its orbit?). I too thought the winner of the A's/Yanks series would win the World Series. I just thought it would be the A's. In fact, I thought they would do it in a sweep. I just didn't say anything in L.A. so as not to antagonize my new Yankee-fan friends. [​IMG]
    But who could've envisioned Zito losing a two-hitter, and Cory Lidle blowing up after pitching so well this year, and the defense falling apart behind Mulder and Hudson (when A's fans see Clemens starting a post-season game against them, they usually figure it's in the bag).
    Oh well, I guess I can take some perverse pleasure in the Yankees steamrolling Seattle and Arizona. It validates how good the A's really are. Hearkening back to another thread, no I still don't consider the Yankees "a sentimental favorite". I'm not even rooting for them. Just trying to find the thinnest sliver of a silver lining in the inevitable.
    RAF, I was going to suggest adding the word "last" to that "Team of the century" t-shirt of yours. I guess you can leave it as is for now. [​IMG]

    Yes, we can say the Yankees got the best of the Mariners. However, as was shown on TV, Yankees fans are probably the worst there are in baseball. Is it any wonder we want to see the Yankees lose? Yes, they spend alot on their players (over 138 million this year), but it is the sickening exhibits of rudeness by their fans that make them the most hated team in the US (RicP--saying blow it out your ass, for example) All you needed to do was watch what they did on TV to know this. I doubt too many people will be watching the World Series, but most people I know will want the Arizona team to win and not the Yankees.

    RAF, you posted basically the same thing in the original thread concerning the ALCS.
    Do we really need another thread taking up server resources? [​IMG]
