I am actually happy. Nice to see them come and win after all the BOS/PHIL World Series predictions when there was snow outside.

I'm sorry, I must have missed the part where the AL East winner automatically gets a bye to the World Series.

16 playoff appearances in 17 years and 12 AL East titles in 16 seasons. Plus 5 WS titles and 7 pennants since 1996.

See! Since the Yankees don't win the World Series every single year, which is proof that money can't buy championships!

Chicago White Sox, pay attention!Yeah, Chicago White Sox, get a >$200 million payroll! That's all there is to it!
The White Sox will never be the Yankees, and that's all there is to it. If you expect that, then you will forever be disappointed.

Nobody said that. And if you believe that is implied you're wrong. I said what I said because if you say the Red Sox are going to the WS then that implies they are better than the Yankees which is not true right now.

lol I love the Dr. Phil ad right at the bottom,

No, the WSox will not be the Yankees but they can be better than they are. It seems like the White Sox are never in the race for a marquee player. More Morel's than A-Rods by far on the WSox.

Congrats Yanks and please knock out Detroit if you face them.I never want the Yankees to beat anybody in the playoffs.

In fact, I've always been "Sox first," then "Sox' division," then "any AL team but the Yankees."

Unless, heaven forbid, the WS was Yankees vs. Cubs; then and only then would I cheer for the Yankees.

That is my fathers philosophy as well.

OK, you're aware that a Boston/Philadelphia World Series is still possible, right?

Sigh...

Yes. But like I said... AS OF NOW, THE YANKEES ARE BETTER THAN THE RED SOX. It's not late October yet.

I don't have the Yankee hate that alot of people do, I hate the Tigers and Red Sox and will root for anyone else in the AL (If the Sox are out) as long as it isn't those two teams.

Edit: I forgot to mention the Twins.
