Unlike Chisox, Duque needs no intro
After a 3-3 road trip that ended yesterday, the Bombers open their home stand with a three-game series against the White Sox, proud owners of a league-best 72-38 record. In the opener tonight, they will face former Yankee Orlando Hernandez, who has been reborn yet again in Chicago.

FORMER MATES WARY OF EL DUQUE (http://www.nypost.com/sports/yankees/26767.htm)

By GEORGE KING TORONTO - With Yankee Stadium packed and Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez on the mound tonight for the best team in baseball, it will seem like old times.

I love Mel's quote about El Duque:

"He stays in great shape for his age - and I have no idea what that age is."

That headline looks kinder to the Chi Sox than the Cubunes usual.:?:

Ken Singleton(one of the yankees broadcasters) had nothing but good things to say about the White Sox yesterday.
They sounded like they are pumped up for us and it should be a fun series.
I was supposed to go to the yankees & red sox games but my daughter is going in my stead because of health reasons.
I'm bummed out because i've spent many a great day(and night) in New York and i have nothing but fond memories of the times i had there.

CHICAGO - The best team in the American League lacks a regular No. 5 hitter, and its starting rotation features far more artists than intimidators. It has no "Nation" of followers; it doesn't draw the best crowds even in its own city.

So it follows that despite their surprising success this season, doubts linger about whether the Chicago White Sox will carry their winning formula into October.

In this league of powerful lineups and huge payrolls, can these White Sox (72-38) - who bring a 13-game AL Central lead into tonight's game at Yankee Stadium - win it all with a different team-building philosophy? Even though they're constructed on a $75-million payroll that is dwarfed by those of the Yankees, Red Sox and Angels?

Or is this destined to be just another tease for a franchise that hasn't won a World Series - or any postseason series, for that matter - since 1917?

"They aren't necessarily the best team," an opposing AL scout said on the condition of anonymity. "They've just had everything fall into place."

This is probably Jerry 'Crumbs' Krause. Get over it, Crumbs... Kukoc was marginal at best.

So, I guess, ultimately, what he's saying is that the Yankees and their double-digit fighting-for-a-wildcard team ERA are the class of the AL

Get used to this kind of crap. Comes with the territory. I work in publishing and belong to a trade association that's based in NYC. Incredibly, after the D'Backs beat the Yankmees in the 2001 WS, a Yankmee fan actually posted a message to the chat group that "the best team did not win." Of course, I fired back asking him which WS he was watching, but this is precisely the kind of crud we can expect when we win it all.

But ya know what? WE WILL HAVE WON! SO...

Hey Newsday, **** my ****.Me too. It sucks that the only two papers Hofstra carries are Newsday and the NY Times, both papers I hate for their bias. I prefer the Daily News or the Post.

Mercy!

I hear there's this new-fangled thing called the World Wide Web. If you check there, I'd bet you could find those two tabloids with the bias you prefer.:smile:

Ah, the anonymous source, probably taken out of context.

Thanks for reminding me again why I can't stand that place.

Speaking of the tabloids, get ready for more garbage. This time, they're preparing to paint Ozzie as a dumb, loud-mouthed Latin who doesn't know his "place":

http://www.newsday.com/sports/baseball/ny-spwally094376867aug09,0,3553996.story?coll=ny-baseball-headlines

"Like a lot of candid, slightly- rough-around-the-edges men who find the world suddenly hanging on their every word, Guillen is in dire need of an editor, if not an attitude adjuster."

Translation: he's "uppity".

"But it wasn't smart and it doesn't bode well for Guillen's apparent future as a media darling. It may very well have fit the definition of the word Guillen used to describe Larry Krueger. It definitely fit the definition of the word most often misused in place of "ignorant," which is "stupid.

And it's something he'd better become aware of soon."

Like he doesn't know already. I love how these arrogant New York media types fantasize that Ozzie doesn't know their "rules".

Get ready for more of this crap. You think the media here is bad? Where do you think they learned it?

But keep it coming....

I just think Ozzie doesn't give a flip about their rules.
