i don't think your going to see them in the world series though.Originally Posted by wranglergirl
i have a feeling about the 'stros this year. whenever they make the playoffs i root for them but i know in the back of my heart they won't win but this year is different. they are going to the series. their chemistry is perfect.

Man, Santana owned the Yanks, he's hands down the Cy Young winner. Angels disappointed me, I thought they'd fare better but Schilling is a badass

Also this year we have some new players. We seem to be coming together this year betterm christian guzman is considered to be having one of his best years and such. To many differences to compare to last year. I'm just worried the twins will beat the yankees and their wont be a home game 2 Then I won't get the watch them in person beat the yankeesOriginally Posted by b5150

Funny you say that, most would say he had more of an off night yesterday. He usually has many less hits off of him. The yankees were hitting everything, and his pitches were wild most of the game. Also the cold seemed to be effecting him, his change up, which is what he is know for, wasn't on par with his usual game. This all could also come down to that he hasn't been in the position with a lot of pressure yet. Only time will tell.Originally Posted by Iron Warrior

Well its about a little more than an hour till the next yankee/twins game starts. Im guessing this game is going to be a close game. Both getting runs and it will come down to the last few innings to determine the winner. Or the twins will just shut out yanks again

Lieber is our #2 and that ain't much of a #2 compared to what we are used to as Yankee fans. If the Yankee offense can wake up...we can show the Twins what a Bronx Bombing is all about.

Nice job on the yanks part. Very close game. I thought we had it when torii hit the home run on top of the 12th.

Sox kicked some ass last night! I don't think I'm going to be getting much sleep until this is all over. I did my 19.5 hour day to stay up and watch the game, got my 4.5 hours of sleep, and at work again. Thank God today is a travel day for the teams.

I live in Houston and am an Astros fan. I am so pumped that the Astros finally beat the Braves.
The problem is we (Astros) now face the best team in baseball (Cardinals). Not only that, but our 3 best pitchers can't pitch game 1.
In short, it doesn't look good for the Astros, but I will hope for the best.
I am not ragging on my own team or making excuses. I am just trying to be realistic.
It will be fun to watch the Red Sox and Yankees go at it again. I believe the curse of the Great Bambino will hold, and the Yanks will win in 7.
Then the Cards will beat the Yanks in 5.
Oh Scotty, Clemens will get the NL Cy Young.

Curt Schilling had the quote of the day...There is nothing like shuting up 50,000 people especially New yorkers...Game 1 should be great The Moose is a great pitcher it could go either way,but the rest of the starters Redsox have the advantage..Even New York writers pick the sox to win, they agree the sox have the better team...But until the Sox beat the Yanks all the stats mean nothing. They could have an allstar team on paper does not matter until you win..This is the first time the Redsox have an edge in starting pitching and in the post season that is a big advantage..Last year New York had the better starting pitching and the better team.This should be a great series..

Yes, all true, for the most part.
There are only two words that come to mind at this time: YANKEE OFFENSE

This is true Madman. I hope we take them this year. If we don't we always have the Patriots.Originally Posted by MaDmaN

I give the Sox a slight edge in hitting and power (very slight) and starting pitching..
The yankees have a slight edge in the bullpen but not much Foulke is awsome and timlin has been lights out as a set up.The sox have had some luck against Rivera so he is not automatic..By the way that is a terrible tragedy what happened to his family and I hope he is able to play.If we win we have to beat thier best and Mariano IMO is a class act..
Manager - clearly goes to Torre,simply because Franconna is a rookie to post season play. I have alot of respect for Torre as he is a great baseball person and I think someday would be a great commissioner..
All in all it is shaping up to be agreat series but the human element will decide this it could go 7 games or it could go 4
It's safe to say something memorable will happen in this series and that is why there is so much drama about these 2 teams....

I hope we're not popping our cork too soon in St. Louis, but World Series tickets go on sale Friday. They are limiting to 2 per person, which is cool, because I'd really like to go. We have some pretty weird fans in that there will be soccor moms and grandmas down there camping out in their Cardinal red.
I'd love to see Cardinal vs. Redsox, which I beleive was my origional pick but there is nobody else I'd like to beat than the Yankees. Sorry, Brian. NOw only if Scott Rolen can find his bat again, we're going to be pretty tough to beat.
10-12-2004, 11:59 AM
Cardinal's are a scary team,I remember 1967 Bob Gibson was awsome!!! I have not seem them enough but if they beat the Astros and they should, thats not a knock on the Astros,they are just beat up it will be no picnic for either the Redsox or Yankees.!!!
Npursuit...it sure takes the sting out whn the Pats 3 months later win the Superbowl...Good point!
10-12-2004, 12:38 PM
It sure would be sweet to have them both be Campions at the same time.....Originally Posted by MaDmaN
