Thanks, sportsref, for setting this up...I'm not really much of a baseball fan at all...but I have to keep up because my daughter is a MAJOR Red Sox fan...and I do like to know a little...just to have something to talk with her about!

Boy, today is your lucky day! SR1 and "Master-mutant" are HUUUUUUUG-AHH! SOX fans!!!!!! They act confused most of time 'cause they were raised by chimps in the wild. If you've ever observed monkeys at the zoo......they were the ones playin' mostly w/ what God gave them. Don't hate them...pity them!!!

GO SOX!!!!!!!!

Speaking of Chimps again... Cy Young candidate Meche had the girls from Beantown swinging like chimps. Captain Varitek 0 for 4, Mandy Ramirez 0 for 4,Big Plopi 1-3, Coco's crispy 0-3, and my favorite chimp...Skirt Schilling losing his third straight start to the all powerful Royals! B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!

Time for your thorizine-laced banana, monkey boy!

Tampax Bay has avg. 90+ L's for the last 10 years. The Skanks didn't quite slay a dragon yesterday. LOL! A Double AA lizard, maybe!

Your sad Sax were 10 and 11 against that double A Lizard last year. That lizard cost the Red Sux the AL east. Your girls better sharpen their swords. I'll bet they can't wait to see them!

You have to wonder why red sux fans are so hung up on the Yankees. I think secretly they want to be Yankee fans but because of a genetic defect in their brains it prevents them from doing it. Oh well those of us who do not have this defect will just have to be sympathetic to their terrible plight...

Did I neglect to say that your BLOWsox were 4-5 last season against another perennial powerhouse ...the Kansas City Royals! It's a wonder they managed to hang on to third! Better win today or it may be deja vue all over again!

Why not mention the other American league cellar dwellar. That would be the Seattle Mariners and the mighty sox sported a sparkling 4-6 record against them last year. My those double A "lizard's" sure can bite!

BIG POPI clubs his way outta his slump w/ 2 dingers!

The rest of the team needs to provide additional offense.

One foggy night, a Yankee fan is heading north from New York and a Red Sox
fan is driving south from Boston. While crossing a narrow bridge, they hit
each other head-on, mangling both cars. The Red Sox fan manages to climb
out of his car and survey the damage. He looks at his twisted car and
says, "Man, I'm lucky to be alive!" Likewise, the Yankee fan gets out of
his car uninjured, he too feeling fortunate to have survived. The Red Sox
fan walks over to the Yankee fan and says, "Hey, man, I think this is a
sign that we should put away our petty differences and live as friends
instead of being rivals. " The Yankee fan thinks for a moment and says,
"You know, you're absolutely right! We should be friends. In fact, I'm
going to see if something else survived the wreck." The Yankee fan pops
open his trunk and removes a full, undamaged bottle of Jack Daniel's. He
says to the Red Sox fan, "I think this is another sign we should toast to
our newfound friendship." The Red Sox fan agrees and grabs the bottle.
After sucking down half of the bottle, he hands it back to the Yankee fan
and says, "Your turn!" The Yankee fan calmly twists the cap back on the
bottle, throws the bottle over the bridge into the river and says, "Nah, I
think I'll just wait for the cops to show up.

Cops show up, arrest the Yankmee fan for "mopery and criminal impersonation" (of a non-knuckle-dragging humanoid). Yankmees fan's trunk was found full of "the clear" and an autographed Dr. Gooden / G. She-effield crack pipe. Found quilty of stupidity.
Became a jailhouse b*tch. Died a painful death in solitary while listening to radio loop broadcasts of Susan Waldman singing "Take me out to the Ball Game" w/ five marbles in her mouth.

Sox fan retrieves bottle of Jack from river and lives happily ever after!

Twins fan being a Cut Above the Rest and smarter than you average bear, avoids accidents altogether, and does not end up in either situation.

That name Wedggie makes me think of Eric Wedge. Any link there?

(I'm another Sox fan btw...a transplant from Boston)

Welcome! Just watched the clubbing of the Yanks (11-4) in the Bronx.

GOOOOOO! SOXXXXXXX!

No connection, however I watched Eric play in the late 80's as a young Sox catching prospect, at Elmira.
Was impressed by his hustle and his desire to learn his craft. I wasn't surprised in the least when he became a MLB manager. Smart, tough scrapper!

I saw him play in Pawtucket myself. He had a good arm, and a decent swing too. Didn't realize he was managing now. Since I'm now living in Yankeeland, baseball hasn't been the priority it once was with me. ;\)

At one time I lived in New Britain, CT, about a half mile from Bee Hive Field where the AA New Britain Red Sox played. Don't think I saw Eric there, which makes me think he jumped a level. However, I did see a number of future ML players there, including Mo Vaughn and John Valentin. The manager was Butch Hobson. I also saw Albert Belle (Joey Belle then) playing for the Canton/Akron Indians and Deon Sanders playing for the Albany Yankees. The SOB stole 2nd and 3rd base within three pitches, and hit a home run too (in a park with a fence that was damned near 450 feet!). I had no idea who he was at the time, but I sure got an education that day!

Posada asked him to break it in for him! Unlike Big Papi, TB's head is more "block" shaped.

How 'bout the babe he's with! Looks like he's really zoned in on what ever she's yapping about!

He looks like he'd rather be dead!

Taking a trip to Cleveland next week on vacation to see the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. I thought also that "Maybe the Indians are in town? If so, I wonder who they're playing?" Turns out they are in town...and playing the Red Sox! I bought myself a bleacher seat. \:\) First time I've bought a ball game ticket online and printed it...

Wedggie, the Jake was excellent! What a great ball park. This is the kind of ball park the Sox need to build to replace Fenway (yes, I know that's sacreligeous, but it needs to be replaced). To me, it appeared to be half the size of Fenway, but it seats 10,000 more! The secret is the grandstand. They are taller and seat more people, whereas in Fenway they go back rather than up and seat far less. My seat was in the bleachers, and it was an excellent seat to watch a game from. The usher explained that we were actually closer to 2nd base than some of the grandstand seats. And not an obstruction in the entire ball park.

You were absolutely right about the fans too. Great fans the Indians have. As it turns out, the Red Sox lost the game 1-0. Wish I had been there the next night though when they won 14-9. My game was a pitcher's duel between Beckett and Carmona, whereas last night was a slugging fest, which I find much more enjoyable.

Two nice surprises I wasn't aware of. Eric Wedge is managing the Indians, and just got a contract extension of three years. And the 1st base coach is Luis Rivera!

Great fans and a great ball park. If I lived in Cleveland, it wouldn't take much for me to become an Indians fan...

Glad ya enjoyed it, my brother!

Tough loss, that 1-0 game. Always hacks me off when they follow it a double-digit barrage the next night!

I feel similar about the Jake being a facimile of what could be possible in Beantown someday. With all that extra seating, maybe us poor shlubs might be able to go to some HOME games instead of traveling to Toronto, Cleveland, Baltimore,etc......!

BTW, that home run that Gutierez hit landed about 20 feet from me in a patio area called "Home Run Alley." I was in the left field bleachers with a great view of the game.

I couldn't help but notice the difference in ticket prices. My bleacher seat was $14.00 had I bought it there at the ticket office instead of online. At Fenway...$23.00. The best seats at the Jake (right behind the plate) are $60.00. At Fenway...$105.00! I'm sure the reason for the difference is the limited seating at Fenway, and as you said...the real fans have a hard time getting a ticket if they have a chance at all. The Sox need to do something about Fenway. What they should do is play somewhere else for a year (maybe a college stadium) and swallow the loss of ticket sales...and rebuild Fenway onsite a la Jacobs field. I really think it would be worth it in the end, and would time time turn a profit for them.

This is great, down to 2 1/2 games...way to go sox! I wonder what excuses there can be....injuries? Nope...that wasnt a valid excuse for the Yankees when they couldnt keep a pitcher healthy...maybe choke is more appropriate? Read the earlier posts from the beginning of the season...lmao...all those people calling the Yankees dead in april, may and june. Alive and kicking now.

The Red Sox usually die in August. This year it seems that the death is just taking a bit longer, and carrying over into September.

How about Manny's reaction to his homerun that only put them 4 runs down? There's a pooch still playing. Won't be for long though. He'll be out hunting by the weekend.

NO Excuses for my team. They are getting out-pitched, out-played and out-managed! If they fail, a superior team will have dethroned them.

You got that right! Eric Wedge for "Manager of the Year. After all...he's a former Red Sox player! See how I can turn lemons into lemonade?

Is it OK to let Coco-chump out of the dog house now, after that great catch in center field at the top of the 9th? ;\)

BOSTON -- The Red Sox shouldn't be too overconfident, and the Rockies shouldn't be too frantic.
For the history of opening-game blowouts doesn't necessarily mean that the winner will go on to take the World Series. Despite a 13-1 loss to the Red Sox at Fenway Park on Wednesday night, the Rockies may be just as likely to win Game 2 on Thursday to even the best-of-seven series.

They'll have rookie Ubaldo Jimenez back at the Fens against veteran Curt Schilling in a battle of right-handers.

"One of the strengths this club has had throughout the season is our confidence, and it hasn't been shaken by the results of this game," said Rockies manager Clint Hurdle after his club suffered the most lopsided Game 1 loss in World Series history. "Really, it's a series of games. That being said, this is not the way we drew it up. But I feel real confident we'll get back out there and get after it tomorrow."

That being said, three of the four teams that lost the most lopsided first games were able to win the Series. The Dodgers lost, 11-0, to the White Sox in 1959 and went on to win in six games. The Brewers knocked out the Cardinals, 10-0, in 1982 and lost the series in seven. And the 1996 Yankees -- who lost Game 1, 12-1, to the Braves -- lost Game 2 (also at Yankee Stadium), but came back to win the next four and the series in six games.

Only the 1987 Twins, who clubbed the Cardinals, 10-1, in Game 1, went on to win the series in seven games.

Funky Okajima

To the tune of Funky Cold Medina...

The Rox came into Boston
Looking for some action
But like our old friend Steinbrenner,
They couldn’t get no satisfaction!

Clint Hurdle told his boys,
"We just won 20 of 21.
Now let's go into Fenway Park
and have a little fun!"

But Francis got spooked
when the crowd yelled "YOOOUK!"
Holliday kept screaming, "WHY?!!"
And both our aces
And Paps' scary faces
Made Tulowitzki cry!

So Clint walked to the Boston dugout
And saw this guy named Tito
Clint said to the guy,
"Why are you so fly?"
He said,
"Funky Ohhh-kajima!"

Funky Ohhh-kajima!

Then Tito told Clint Hurdle
Some more of his tricks
He said, "Make Pedroia your leadoff man
And you'll get lots of hits!
Our number two's lucky goatee
Is thicker than molasses!
And Papi and Manny hit it so far
You have to get out your glasses!
We've got Lugo and Coco
Bringin' all their love
Mike Lowell with his golden bat
And his Golden Glove!

We’ve got slammin' outfielders
Like Ellsbury and Drew
But of course you need
great pitching too
Like Funky Ohhh-kajima!

Funky Ohhh-kajima!

Now, Beckett's got a curve
That could not be any meaner
Then Schilling and Dice-K show up
And take you to the cleaners

Jon Lester is our come back kid
And for Timlin, it's old hat
Del Carmen, Lopez, & Gagne
Might just ruin your at bat!

When we needed one more,
Kyle Snyder was the answer
And of course our lights out closer
Who is one mean Riverdancer

We’ve got Cora, Kielty, and Hinske
Always ready when they get the call
Our back-up catcher Dougie
can even catch a knuckleball!

And you need great vets like Captain Tek
To calm the young guys' fears
We’ve got this great guy, Wake
We’ve counted on for 13 years!"

Clint looked appalled!
He said, "I heard we'd win it all
If I ate a Fenway weinah!"

Tito said, "No, no,
I tell ya, Bro
It's the Funky Ohhh-kajima!"

DENVER -- "The Red Sox can have their Nation. The Yankees have the universe."
-- Hank Steinbrenner, New York Yankees senior vice president



Not anymore, they don't.


WORLD SERIES

Rockies-Red Sox
series page

For the second time in four seasons, the Boston Red Sox are World Series champions and the indisputable rulers of the baseball universe as we know it. They are the Roman Empire of the postseason, having won eight World Series games in a row. Hail, Tito.

That the Yankees' Steinbrenner says otherwise is one-third arrogance, one-third ignorance and one-third stupidity. Then again, that sort of self-infatuation helps explain why the Yankees haven't played in a World Series since 2003 and haven't hoisted the sterling silver Commissioner's Trophy above their heads since 2000.

Didn't anybody from the House of Steinbrenner (George and sons Hank and executive vice president Hal) see what the Red Sox just did to the Colorado Rockies? Four games, four wins. They could have played a best-of-17 series, and the Red Sox still would have swept.

This was the Europeans vs. USA in the Ryder Cup, New England Patriots vs. anybody, chocolate eclairs vs. Britney. Less than two weeks ago, the Red Sox were a loss away from playoff elimination. Now, they reek of champagne again.

Sunday night, in the plastic-covered visitors clubhouse of Coors Field, the Red Sox popped open green bottles of Domaine Ste. Michelle and soaked themselves in victory. DH/first baseman David Ortiz, looking ridiculous with blue swim goggles covering his eyes, stood on a small stage and yelled playful obscenities at his teammates. Ballplayers.

Then a half-dozen Red Sox shook their bottles and aimed them at their beloved Big Papi. He danced in the champagne like a child dancing in the gushing water of a fire hydrant.

AP Photo/Ed Andrieski

Let the good times roll. For the second time in four seasons, the Red Sox are on top of the world.

"When I first came here in '03, it was like the most impossible thing to get done," said Ortiz of Boston's winning a world championship.

But then the Red Sox swept the St. Louis Cardinals to claim the 2004 World Series. Now this.

The Nation keeps annexing territory that once belonged to the Yankees. And with each championship, the Red Sox are reversing the conventional financial wisdom of the sport. Fat payrolls -- and the Red Sox have the second-fattest in the majors at $143 million -- can work if the people operating the wallet know what they're doing.

The Red Sox know what they're doing. They are what the other big-money franchises -- New York Mets ($116 million payroll in 2007), Los Angeles Angels ($109 million), Chicago White Sox ($109 million), Los Angeles Dodgers ($108 million), Seattle Mariners ($106 million), Chicago Cubs ($99 million), Detroit Tigers ($95 million), Baltimore Orioles ($95 million) and, yes, even the Yankees ($195 million) -- want to be when they grow up.


"I think if you look at who the stars were of this Series, it's not all about payroll," said Red Sox owner John Henry. "It's never all about payroll. … But it takes 25 guys to win. The guys at the bottom of this pay scale were just as important to this team … [pause for Henry getting champagne-sprayed by shortstop Julio Lugo] … as the guys at the top."


Ortiz made a beeline toward Henry. There were hugs, then Ortiz announced, "The best owner in baseball." Henry beamed.

"I think we have a good, young team," Henry said. "I think we have a solid team that's going to be strong for some time. But the competition isn't getting any easier in the American League. It's a really tough league."

Money guarantees nothing in baseball except expectations. But what happened to the Red Sox this season, as well as in 2004, isn't an accident. They spent money, lots of it, but they mostly spent it wisely. They did a lot of things wisely.

This is the 103rd World Series. Only two teams have won successive championships by 4-0 sweeps: the Red Sox (2007, '04) and, before they began to self-destruct, the Yankees (1998-99). It is entirely possible, if not probable, that Boston could win it all next season too.

The Red Sox are the Warren Buffetts of baseball. They invest and trade well.

While the Yankees were committing $120 million to Jason Giambi in 2002, the Red Sox waited a year and took a $1.25 million flier on a DH discarded by the Minnesota Twins. Maybe you've heard of him … Ortiz.

When the Yankees signed starting pitcher Carl Pavano, the Red Sox would later trade for Pavano's Florida Marlins teammate, Josh Beckett. To be fair, Boston also pursued Pavano. Pavano's Yankees career is deader than a Barry Bonds-Bud Selig photo op. Meanwhile, Beckett is building a résumé that one day could include Cooperstown.


The Red Sox aren't nostalgic or sentimental. Pedro Martinez? Johnny Damon? Enjoy New York, fellas. General manager Theo Epstein and his staff designate a value to a player and rarely waver from that value. That's why Damon is in a Yankees uni and Pedro in a Mets uni. Epstein isn't afraid of selective personnel turnover. If he were, that '04 team might be intact still.


Did I mention the 2005 draft? Pedro's departure meant a supplemental choice used to select Clay Buchholz, whose second career start resulted in a no-hitter last month. Center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury, who apparently hits nothing but doubles, was taken with the Orlando Cabrera pick. He hit .438 for the Series. Pitcher Craig Hansen came with the Derek Lowe pick.

Depending on the situation, the Red Sox aren't afraid to ignore slotting and signability issues. They invest heavily in scouting the Caribbean and Asia. They understand baseball has no borders.

They aren't perfect. (Hello, Edgar Renteria. And until recently, hello, J.D. Drew.) But if Epstein wants someone, if he's absolutely convinced that player will be the difference between a duck boat parade or losing, the Red Sox will cowboy up.

They outbid and outsmarted the Yankees on Daisuke Matsuzaka. So the Yankees settled for Dice-K Really Lite, Kei Igawa. Igawa was a disaster, finishing 2-3 with a 6.25 ERA.

"We just know that we're blesssed to have great resources," Epstein said. "But that in and of itself doesn't get you anywhere, as other teams have shown."

Greed, as Gordon Gekko said, is good. Or it can be. The Red Sox want more. More playoff appearances (that's the starting point for Epstein) and, if possible, more moments like Sunday night, when commissioner Selig handed them another World Series trophy.

A payroll of $143 million, when used the way the Red Sox use those dollars, can result in more of everything, including another championship run next season.

"This team is built well," said veteran reliever Mike Timlin. "You can't predict what's going to happen, but this team is built extremely well."

The outfield of Manny Being Manny, Ellsbury and Drew returns. Third baseman, Series MVP and free agent-to-be Mike Lowell will be asked back at a nice raise. If he leaves, Kevin Youkilis might take his place. Or maybe, just maybe, the Red Sox will romance Alex Rodriguez again (his ego-driven agent, Scott Boras, chose Sunday night to make the announcement of A-Rod's opt-out). It isn't as if they can't afford him, although Red Sox fans chanted "Don't sign A-Rod" as the Boston players and management mingled on the field hours after the game.

Big Papi is signed through 2010, with a club option in 2011. Dustin Pedroia looks like a fixture at second. Lugo? Not sure. Catcher and captain Jason Varitek is here for at least another season.

The starting rotation is a half-light-year ahead of the Yankees'. Beckett, Jon Lester, Buchholz, Dice-K, Tim Wakefield, possibly Curt Schilling (doubt it) or a free agent (don't doubt it). And the bullpen is mostly state-of-the-art (with Jonathan Papelbon, Hideki Okajima, Manny Delcarmen as the centerpieces).

Manager Terry Francona will return, as will Epstein, who appears to have designated his gorilla suit (remember his walkout two years ago?) for assignment.

"We've got a lot of young guys, we've got a lot of talent, a lot of guys in their prime," said Lester, who won the Game 4 clincher. "It should be fun for years to come, hopefully. Put some runs together and be in the playoffs every year."

Henry had it right when he said Steinbrenner and the Yankees "can have Mars and Pluto. We'll take Red Sox Nation."

They'll take that. And more trophies.

I find it interesting that instead of celebrating a WS Championship, they are still trying to prove that they are not inferior to the Yankees. Celebrats have fun, worry about the Yankees next year. Freakin Chowds...lol.

No need to prove anything. One team went to the World Series, while another went into their off season. One club is a rising dynasty, while the other is quickly becoming a bunch of has-beens. Now that Torre has left town (smart move), watch the rest of the pin-stripped stars follow him.

My feeling is that the Yankees (and their fans) ;\) , are clueless, self-centered imps who cannot fathom that real championship baseball is played outside their "universe".
The Sox would happily celebrate their 2nd WS ring in 4 years ( ;)) sans selfish ego-maniacs forcing themselves into the discussion while the Championship is still being decided last night and then to have reporters ask the champion players to respond to reports coming from the "universe". Wake up and SHUT UP!

Agreed coach. I guess if that Yankees had not won 26 world championships, we would not expect them to win, but we do. I guess we are spoiled and used to having a great franchise with great expectations every year. I guess that we are not used to feeling this way..hmmm...now I guess we know what the red sox fans have felt like all those years before 2004. Damn, no wonder they acted like they did lol. Congrats to the sox..they had a hell of a year.

And the Red Sox fans are just as big of asses when they win, as they are when they lose! " 7 straight years of playoff eliminations" not quite 86 now is it. You guys are so miserable about that fact that you can't even enjoy a championship when you win one. MORONS!

No trouble enjoying the recent SOX triumph here, Mutt!!!

The double-bonus: The clear impending collapse of your "universe"

Save the MORON tag for your ownership! ;\)



The Moron tag was properly addressed, it just lacked one addition ....
MORONS with NO CLASS!!

O Papelbon, O Papelbon,

Thy fastball does amaze us.

O Papelbon, O Papelbon,

To new heights does it raise us.

When it’s hard and letter-high

It hums in tight and buzzes by.

O Papelbon, O Papelbon,

Thy fastball does amaze us.

But Papelbon, O Papelbon,

How sorry is thy dancing.

O Papelbon, O Papelbon,

Improve that awful prancing!

On the mound thou comes up big,

But spare us, please, that Irish jig.

O Papelbon, O Papelbon,

How sorry is thy dancing.

O Papelbon, O Papelbon,

We love thy boyish smile.

But Papelbon, O Papelbon,

Thou needs to change thy style.

Please kindly lose that fat cigar,

And put away thy air guitar.

O Papelbon, O Papelbon,

We love thy boyish smile.

O Papelbon, O Papelbon,

Thy pitches do sustain us.

But Papelbon, O Papelbon,

Thy wardrobe it does drain us!

With other teams all wilted now,

We’re forced to see thee kilted now.

O Papelbon, O Papelbon,

Thy pitches do sustain us.

O Papelbon, O Papelbon,

Despite this carping carol,

O Papelbon, O Papelbon,

No matter thy apparel!

For all that we could care,

Pitch in thy underwear!

O Papelbon O Papelbon,

Thy fastball does amaze us!

—Gerry Goldstein

Merry Christmas, All!!!!

With Apologies to Patsy Cline. "I Fall to Pieces"

He falls to pieces,
Each time he loses a win
He falls to pieces.
We're just glad he's now 'old friend'

We wanted three strikes but he just missed.
He wanted us to forget, pretend we never led.
And we tried and we tried, but we never did.
He walks in and he falls to pieces.

He falls to pieces,
Each time Tito called his name.
He fell to pieces.
Just throwing gas on the flame.

Tito had to find someone else to throw,
Someone who got outs too, like Gagne used to do.
But each time he goes with Gone-yay we knew,
Takes the mound and he falls to pieces.

Another long fly and he falls to pieces.

The $10 Million Man

I saw the list from the Mitchell Report yesterday. I noticed that Josias Manzanillo, Mo Vaugh, and Todd Pratt all made the list. I saw all three playing AA ball for the New Britain Red Sox in 1989-90, and watched many a game with Mo's parents there.

Rocket Man
by: Paul Paliotta (with apologies to Bernie Taupin)

As performed by Roger Clemens in the winter of 1996/1997

I packed my bags last night pre-flight
My pitching days, were near an end
And they said it was the twilight of my career by then
I miss my curve so much, I miss my strikes
I'm loading on some weight
So I think the time is right

And I think it's gonna be a long, long time
Till Mitchell comes around and then they'll find
I'm not the man they think I am at all
Oh no, no, no
I'm a Rocket Man
Rocket Man, striking out my foes on anadrol
But I think it's gonna be a long, long time

This ain't a young man's face, I'm not a kid
In fact I'm old as hell
But I got a plan to change that, and I think I will
And all the science, I don't understand
It's just a shot into my cheek
And I'm a Rocket Man, a Rocket Man!

And I think it's gonna be a long, long time
Till Mitchell comes around and then they'll find
I'm not the man they think I am at all
Oh no, no, no
I'm a Rocket Man
Rocket Man, striking out my foes on anadrol
But I think it's gonna be a long, long time

Recently I received in my e-mail 21 indicators that say you're from Massachusetts. #17 was "You think Roger Clemens and Johnny Damon are more evil than Whitey Bulger. #18 was "You know who Whitey Bulger is." LOL!

You know who Whitey is? You must be from the Bay State too?
