Yeah, but I wouldn't call him a prime-time player either. Remember him during last year's ALCS and World Series? Couldn't lay off the outside slider, made several key errors, and so forth. I really don't think the Yankees miss him that much.

i'd actually rather have soriano than arod.

soriano will hit 30-40 homeruns usually, steal 30-40 bases and play 2nd base (for now). how many 2nd baseman are going to hit 30-40 jacks and steal bases like that? none.

how many 3b are going to hit 30-40 hr and hit below 300? plenty. chavez, rolen, glaus, beltre, lowell, ramirez, wright (eventually), castilla (boosted by coors, sure, still did it though)

point is, if steinny waited until this year he could have signed somebody like glaus or beltre and kept soriano who is a damn good player in his own right. a good 3b is less of a rarity than a great 2b. we'll see if soriano winds up in the outfield soon enough though, still, i'd probably rather alfonso

they are so focused on the yankees and their sepnding that they dont realize they have the second highest payroll and try to do exactly the same stuff the yankees do, but just arent as good as it

it would be one thing for expos and devil ray fans to complain about spending, but the red sox payroll is way over 100 million, so stop your bitching
finally... a voice of reason.

i never thought i could meet a group of fans more obnoxious and annoying than yankee fans... and then i went to college in dead smack in the middle of "red sox nation," a place where they celebrate super bowl victories with chants of "yankees suck."

My point was that the Yankees replaced Soriano with a bigger bat (A-Rod) and a much better glove (Miguel Cairo).

A-Rod's an excellent base stealer as well...28/32 this year.

As I've no doubt mentioned in this forum several times, we also celebrated concerts on the Elevation with chants of "Yankees Suck". You know, when the synthesizer intro to "New York" comes on.

(This was all before 9/11, of course.)

i'm well aware... it's rather pathetic, i must say. the entire region has a massive inferiority complex when it comes to new york.

Why would you say such a thing?

BTW, when the Sox win the World Series, I'm driving down to New York to riot.

But they were awfully quiet when the Red Sox almost tied it, weren't they?

Go buy some Prep H w/ Zimmer Headache, you act like you might need it

You mean like the sound in Fenway every time something bad happens, such as Vlad's grand slam? Oh wait, i guess absolute silence can't be considered a sound, can it?
