so i see you have the same effect on the yankees as i do on the mets?



in the last 15 regular season games i've attended, the mets are 15-0.

in the only 2 post-season games i attended, they lost in the 9th inning on a homerun by some fucking bum.

i hate the cardinals.

I have been to 16 Yankee post-season games.

A lot of ups and downs, some highlights:

Was at Game 2 in 1995, against the Mariners...15 inning game, in the rain with the big Leyritz HR to win..and Mattingly homered, which was awesome.

Was at the Jeffery Maier game in 1996.

Game 6 of the 1996 WS, which they won. Our seats were upperdeck, between the plate and 3B, so, we could not actually see the last out...but the crowd sort of gave it away.

1998 - Was at Game 4 in San Diego, even was on the local news back in MY on NBC, cos I had a broom with me at the game and a Yankee shirt, they talked to me in the parking lot. A female Padre fan asked me how I'd like it if she took the broom and shoved it up my ass and I was kind of torn because it was such an interesting offer.

2000 - Games 1 and 2 of the Subway Series, got to see the Clemens/Piazza incident from way out in RF.

2001 - As I mentioned, watched the Yanks 90's dynasty end, right in my fucking face. Then had to drive back from Phoenix to LA right after the game. 3/4 of the way home, my friend, who is the DJ for the trip, decides it's time for Sade's greatest hits. I'm too tired to even wonder why he owns this, let alones brings it with him on this trip. Not long after he puts it in I almost drive us right off of the freeway because it's 2am and Sade is not exactly perfect driving while exhausted and depressed music.

2002 - Game 3 at Anaheim, series tied at 1-1, get to watch Mussina the playoff chokee pig dog scum tooth piss away a 6-1 lead, all while having those fucking annoying thunder sticks getting waved in my face and banged in my ear, as well as having to deal with the Rally Monkey and Traffic from LA to Anaheim. Swore I'd never go back to a game in Anaheim, regular season or post-season

2005 - Games 1,2 and 5 at Anaheim. Should have kept my vow. Game 1 they win. Game 2, fun times, A-Rod loses a one hop grounder in the sun, leading to unearned run action, and they lose. After winning a close Game 4 in The Bronx, Yanks take an ealy 2-0 lead and Bartolo Colon has to leave game early, in comes Ervin Santana, who decides he is Johan Santana, which is Ervin's real name anyway. Then, Mike Mussina decides this is a good time to piss another early lead away (a pattern that would continue in 2006 against Detroit) and the Yanks go into the 9th down 5-3. Jeter leads off the 9th with a single, typical Jeter. Who's up now? A-Rod! What's he gonna do? Ground into a DP. And broadcasters wonder why Yankee fans hate A-Rod. Yanks then get 2 more men on after that, and Matsui, I believe, makes the last out. And broadcasters wonder why Yankee fans hate A-Rod.

So, overall, I cannot complain, have witnessed 2 WS clinching victories, one in The Bronx and the other down in SD, and those memories will last a lifetime...but, since the Subway Series wins of 2000, the Yanks are 1-7 with me at playoff games. I should stop attending.

Hey all you Randy Johnson haters: Arizona and the Yankees are supposedly closer to getting a trade done. If Johnson goes back to Arizona, this leaves a bit of a whole in the Yanks rotation. Stay tuned.

Makes me sick to my stomach to this day.
Sorry to get off topic, but that game was not Chris Webber's fault (11-18 FG, 11 rebounds, 3 blocks). If you must blame somebody, blame Jalen Rose (5-12 FG, 6 turnovers including a big one when North Carolina made their comeback, got repeatedly burned by Donald Williams, forced Michigan to burn a timeout earlier in the half when he didn't get open for an inbounds pass).

Yeah but if Webber doesn't call timeout, Michigan may not win, but certainly would have still covered the spread, which is all that really mattered...4 staright Donald Williams free throws after Webber's gaffe ended that.
Interesting that this incident is mentioned today when the same thing (under drastically different circumstances) happened to Temple last night vs Duke.
One significant difference...after Duke made the 2 tech FT's Temple got to inbound the ball...in the Webber incident after UNC got 2 FT's, they also got the ball, leading to a foul and 2 more Williams FT's...if Michigan got the ball back, they would have had a shot to back door a cover (down 4 instead of 6, getting 2.5, trust me I rember thi$ all too well), and I might hate Chris Webber a little le$$ than I do these days.

Good baseball discussion.

I don't blame Webber at all for how it happened. Where was ANYONE at the time Webber took the ball up the floor. Rose was blanketed, Jimmy King? Ray Jackson? He's a friggin pf/c, he should never have had to taken the ball up that far. I believe b/c he had to is why we got trapped, and hence why he called the TO. Now, he heard in the time-out before that play we didn't have any time-outs. I dunno, mental collapse under pressure. I cried that day. I was 12. And I'm still pissed he left without a Championship.

So, I really want to know what you think of this. Nomar was great last year for the dodgers. Will that happen again? And...will Juan Pierre be great for the dodgers as well? Friggin Cubs players leaving and being sweet. Bill Mueller did it too. Matt Clement didn't, but still. you get my point. What do u think?

If Nomar can stay healthy, he's a quality major league hitter capable of hitting well above .300 with some decent power. Ted Williams said that Nomar would be remembered as the greatest hitter in Sox history when all was said and done...obviously that won't happen, but for a stretch of 1997-2000, it looked like Ted would be right. Then 2001 and Nomar's first major injury.
2002 and 2003 were decent rebound seasons but injuries cropped up again in 04 and 05. Nomar's only issue is health...I wish him well, always liked him and would have preferred he stayed, but if trading him to the Cubs was the final piece of the Sox 2004 WS puzzle, I can live with that.
Nomar really shouldn't be looked upon as a former Cub, his stint there was just a blip, he's a former Red Sox.
As for Matt Clement, you can have him back for the low low price of free.

Nomar will always play well as long as he avoids injury...he's a great hitter, plain and simple. Not a lot of Right handed batters win one batting title, let alone two in their careers.

Pierre, I am not so sure. I know he's fast but I would not want him as my leadoff man. He had a .326 OBP in 2005 and a .330 OBP last season. That sounds like a #8 hitter to me. He played 162 games last season and could not score mroe than 90 runs. I know you need guys to knock you in and all, but, wow, you'd have thought he could at least get to 90 runs scored. As usual, this is all just my humble opinion, I could be very wrong.

I don't blame anyone in particular for what happened to Michigan, to me, that's a team-wide fuck up.

I blame Lloyd Carr, he looked like a deer in the headlights on the sidelines while Pete Carroll was going for the jugular...oh wait you mean hoops.

I'll take Matt Clement back. As I've said before. At least he pitches.

The Boston Globe reports that former Cardinal Julian Tavarez may emerge as the favorite to be the Red Sox's closer.
