So if there really is a curse the Sox can't do anything about it. Really, supernatural forces are at work, voodoo if you will. which also benefits the Wanks. How many of the Wankees 26 championships are the result of voodoo/supernatural forces? Well, all of them of course. So they really aren't the "best" franchise ever, we'll never really know how good they are because demons or gods are why they win, not men.

--minnesota twins vs. new york yankees, 2003 regular season = 0 wins, 7 losses
--minnesota twins vs. new york yankees, 2002 regular season = 0 wins, 6 losses
--13 consecutive losses for the twins against the yankees
--last win for the twins against the yankees, 2001 regular season

even with full knowledge that the regular season means bubkiss come the post-season, we are talking about the yankees here. hate them as i may, they are the most experienced team in the playoffs. but hey, i remember in '88 when the mets dominated the dogers in the regular season, and ended up losing in 7 games to LA in the NLCS. so anything can happen... but i stand by my prediction... santana, radke, lohse... 1-2-3... say goodnight.

and my "problem" isn't really a problem. i hope i'm wrong and that the twins win, if for no other reason, because it will piss bud selig off to no end. all i'm asking is to not just say "twins are better than 3 and out." why do you believe that? i told you why i think the yankees will sweep, and i know that i could, and with my track record in the betting world, probably will be wrong. let's here your predictions... beyond just the simple "twins are better than 3 and out." who do you think will win each series, and the eventuall title. then once it's all said and done, we can come back here and mock the idiots who made stupid predictions... like me saying bonds would hit 3 homeruns in a game, or anyone saying the red sox would actually win a title

you know...I know who I like.

My opinion is, the Twins are better than 3 and out. I really don't have to provide sunstance. I just know. They are a hot young team...and due for a victory over the yankees who will probably come in complacent (hopefully).

I hate Bud Selig.

I really dislike the Marlins. They are a waste of a franchise. Despite being a lifelong fan, I am really tired of the Yankees. But I will not cheer for the Red Sox (despite knowing a Sox v. Cubs world series would be cool).

I would LOVE (again, I) a Twins/Cubs World Series. That would be my own personal baseball heaven.

and there we go... twins win game 1, 3-1...

what i failed to mention is that i am the black kiss of death, so any team i pick to win, no matter what the odds, shall in fact lose.

that being said... i hereby change my pick to win the world series to the atlanta braves

Much better I guess. Looks like Yanks couldn't even score a run until after the seventh inning (I missed the last two innings when I stepped away from the radio ).

Headache!

Thanks for picking the Braves!!!!

And with that Kerry Wood dominates the Bravos.

Please pick Oakland to win tonight.

NOTE: THE PROPER PRONUNCIATION OF "MAAAHHBEE" IS TO SAY IT LIKE FAT BASTARD DID IN AUSTIN POWERS 2. THANK YOU.


and as for the twins yankees... eh what'cha gonna do. like i said, i hate the yankees and want them to lose, i just don't think they're gonna. and if i had to make the prediction over again, i'd still say 3 and out. thus why they don't play the games on paper.

For sale: one baseball team manager. Goes by name of Grady Little, middle name "knows very". Asking price, nothing, just take him off our hands, and find out who can start game 3 since he used our starter to lose game 1.
