    I think that's a premature statement considering he's 25y/o and a rookie......he is having betters days than mariano this year for that matter.

    It's not even fair to compare them. Rivera is a future hall of famer, while Papelbon is mearly a rookie. Not even considering that Papelbon will probably end up starting while Rivera will never start obviously. Either way you have to give Pap some credit, how many kids his age can step into a role like his and do as well as he is doing. I hope he wins ROY if Liriano keeps it up, since Liriano will win the CY. Split the awards up and give them both the credit they deserve. Along with giving Verlander like a pack of Big League Chew for his efforts.

    agreed. On another note has there ever been a season in which the top two contenders for the cy young are rookies?

    I would have to say three. Verlander just won his 11th and his ERA is below 3 i believe. I do not know how you cannot count him, even though he has been surpassed by Paps and Liriano. But I can never recall anything like this happening before.

    Seriously what kind of lame statement is that......clutch flyouts...please. How many times has david ortiz had clutch hits/homeruns that have won games in the last 2 years....and yes against your beloved yanks too, or did you forget about game 4 of the 2004 acls. I find your attempt to mock argueably the best 3/4 hitters in baseball quite amusing. Wait who leads the majors in HR and rbi's.....oh yeah ortiz does.

    Yeah it gets almost as old as the 1918 chant....i mean 2004. Good ole george sure does like to buy himself out of jams all the time, but I won't harp on it b/c it is what it is. I'm all for a good *****ry and that's exactly what it is. So let the trash talking begin b/c it's gonna be an interesting next few months.

    Already 0 for 2 against Detroit. What a way to get ready for a "make-it-or-break-it series" with the evil empire. I hate to say it, but it looks like the fat lady is getting herself a drink of water before her big performance.

    All in all, it was a decent year and definitely one to build the future with. Time to turn to football and as irony has it, Madden '07 will be out the day after the weekend massacre to soothe all us Boston fans for yet another lost season of what could have been.

    I think your giving up a bit prematurely and a true fan wouldn't be. There are still 50 games left in regular season play......more than enough to have an interesting end of the season. Don't forget it's the yankees themselves that represent the greatest CHOKE in baseball playoff history.....i can hear them starting to hack right now.

    yeah, it's too early to count them out. 3 GB ain't sh!t. hell, they were 1 GB again a couple days ago. it can switch on the flip of a hat. my only assurance is that matsui and sheffield still aren't part of the equation.

    Yeah, I know what you are saying. After watching them tonight I think they might have a run left in them. Wells is getting up to speed, Papelbon seems to have his issues worked out and it only gets better when the DL empties out.

    Did you know, the Yanks are a better team without them two (Scheff and Matsui), check the stats. So I can't wait for them to get back either. JK

    Anyhow, here's to a great finish to a great year in baseball!!!

    I don't know about that. We are the toughest fans in professional sports and will give up the ghost at the first sight of trouble. But you are right about the biggest choke in sports history.

    Anybody seen that bullet I left lying around? I don't think I can take 3 more games of what I just saw. Little league teams play better than they did today. Heck, Luis Tiant and Bob Stanley had a better shot at getting someone out then the clowns they put out there today. Even Bill "The Spaceman" Lee got people out from time to time.

    I honestly can't believe that jason johnson is still in the starting rotation.....to say he is god aweful is an understatement. The pitching is killing us right now.

    someone tell me, because i just don't know. is it 'good' when your team loses twice in the same day??? doesn't sound 'good' to me, but i just wanted to check to see what the boston fans thought.

    Depends on what you consider losing. I always thought that if you gave up over 12 runs a game, it counted as a win for both teams - no? My bad.

    I know it must be great satisfaction seeing us Sox fans suffer this humiliation but, can we officially change the title of this board to: Yankees win the division - AGAIN

    Just calling it as I see it.

But according to ESPN the other day the sox would win 3 of 5. I can't wait to see what they say monday. They always slob all over the red sox knobs when they win and win they lose they make petty excuses for the red sox. How bias can espn be really. I hate espn GO YANKEES!@#$%^
