The way i look at these players should have to sit and watch how it feels to win and how much it hurts to be the one not celebrating. We went and celebrated in Minnesota in 2000 and look whats happened since then, they have been the ones celebrating for the past 2 of 3 years

Yankees magic number was 1. Boston HAD to win to avoid elimination. They did, but the Yankees won. Magic number = 0.

A pathetic effort by the Sox.

One of the yank announcers last night ~ I doubt they'll do much celebrating. The play-offs were a given at the start of the season. The real season begins next week.

The yankmee arrogance is too much.

I don't see that as arrogance, I see it as expecting to win every year. I see it as an attitude. The Bulls had that same attitude during the 90's. The season was just a prelude to what they were playing for and that was "Championships".

Jim Kaat who I like alot as an analyst (we should have DJ take tapes home to listen to Kaat, and Singleton) anyway made a point about Jose's comments about only coming back if we were trying to be a winner. Kaat blasted him by saying that maybe if he stop trying to hit homeruns and worked on getting on base, and playing better defense and do some little things maybe he would already be on a winner. Kaat doesn't do that often so I found it interesting.

Agree, I also like Kaat.

I believe it was Kay who made the statement about the play-offs..., he's the typical arrogant yankee fan although, I also like his observations on the game.

No it was Kaat, b/c it kinda shocked me coming from him. But I agree Kay is very arrogant, but I guess Hawk would be the same way if we went to the playoffs 8 yrs in a row.

Agree, Kaat mentioned Jose but wasn't it Kay who talked, season, play-offs?

Yea that was Kay. Living in NY and watching George freak out every other day you would think they were 5 games over .500. But I guess it works, they win. But Torre did a great job putting up with all that and still keeping that team focused.

As much as I dislike the Yankees, I have to hand it to them. Their "celebration" on the field last night epitomized the organization. They realize they have simply accomplished what they were supposed to do, and now the real job starts - this is a team of pros. Teams like this don't panic, and they don't choke.....like some I know.

I've railed on this before, but just look back to the night before when Ordonez hit the walk-off home run. Now I'll admit to being happy that we just beat the Yankees, but come on - the celebrating at home plate was too over the top. This team had just played themselves right out of what most people thought (myself included) of a sure division title. The home run was nice - but it was an empty victory to say the least. The hopping and back slapping and such must have looked like a joke in the opposite dugout. I'm sure the emotion and happiness of all the White Sox players was legitimate - and that's the scary part. How can this team be such a gleeful bunch when they've just kicked away a playoff opportunity?

Travelling secretary?

Wasn't that George Costanza's title?














(Yeah, I know, he was the ASSISTANT to the Travelling Secretary. Work with me.)

I listened to the yankee broadcast and i didn't have a problem with anything they said.When you win as much as they do its just a different mindset then what we(who usually lose) have.
One thing tho.I guess Big Frank said that the yankees should win with all the money that they spend.It was derek jeter who heard about that and said that the twins don't spend much money and they didn't have any trouble beating the White Sox...touchy(as in touche)..derek..very touchy.

I don't know if this was sarcasm or not, but I don't care if the owner runs down State Street naked every hour on the hour if they spend $180M on the payroll...

I thought the Yankees traded George Costanza to Tyler Chicken of Arkansas in exchange for chicken-flavored beer, or some other inanity.

I think most of that emotion was directed at Magglio Ordonez. It was his first ever career walk off homer. I think that is why most of the team was celebrating a little more than usual.
