Yes, and while we're at it, let's all give the Stanley Cup to the Rangers, the Super Bowl to the Giants, and the NBA championship to the Knicks.

Come on, I don't think the Yankees would want people cheering for them just because they happen to play in New York. They've worked hard all season, as have the Diamondbacks, and to treat either team preferentially because of circumstances out of their control would just be unfair.

It's not pitying them - I was there a few days ago and I think a win would be a good morale booster - nothing wrong with that, is there?

(Somehow I think that if the games were happening right after the events of 9/11 then this argument wouldn't seem so far-fetched to some of you. How quickly people forget....)

...however, I draw the line at the Rangers taking the Stanley Cup

Go D-Backs. I never have been able to, and never will be able to stand the Yankees.

Of course, look at where I'm from and you'll understand why...

Can't wait for the amusement park!
We have fun here no matter what we do.

This is not happening. I can't fucking believe it. They put in Kim again, and he gives up a home run again!!!!

This is the story of the Yankees. They get everything to go their way. EVERYTHING!!!!

Fucking Arizona has a baseball team!!! THAT's why I root for the Yankees. Fucking expansion teams in the Series. What the hell?

martha, what's wrong with an expansion team? they've been in the league for a few years now, did you want them to suck for 20 years before they had a good team? they're good because of free agency and a high payroll, same reason as the Yankees

D-Backs, D-Backs, D-Backs...

They come to the Bronx, here in New York City. All they need is one win. Just one win and they would have total control of this series. And what happens...

Tino Martinez ties the game on Wednesday night. Derek Jeter wins the game on Thursday morning.

Scott Brosius then ties the game on Thursday night. Alfonso Soriano wins the game on Friday morning.

Un-freakin-believable.

Someone better buy that Arizona relief pitcher, Byung-Hyun Kim, a real stiff drink tonight. He is going to have some nightmarish memories about these last two games. I feel bad for him, actually.

But I don't really feel too sorry for Arizona fans. New Yorkers have it tough these days.

AJ

Expansion teams rock. Especially from places that begin with an 'A'

The Yankees are going to win, not for sept 11, they are gona win cuz they are a better team, and Arizona not even in 100 years will have the legacy that the Yankees have, the Db's are just lucky to be on the same field

Justice will strike out every time he is up until he hits the series winning homer in game 7.

Ouizy's prediction.

Go Yankees...
