No one ever expected that great top-to-bottom pitching performances would be pleasant surprises for the Yankees, but this season that has been the case.

BOMBERS GIVE SOX, DUQUE EL By MICHAEL MORRISSEY

August 9, 2005 -- As Mike Mussina's pitch count soared well past the century mark during a rocky sixth inning last night, Yankee manager Joe Torre admitted only half-jokingly, "We weren't looking.'' With Carl Pavano, Jaret Wright and Chien-Ming Wang on the shelf and Randy Johnson now nursing a barking back that threatens his Thursday start, Mussina - the last man standing - came through against the best team in baseball.

TICKET TO OCTOBER: GRIT, OFFENSE AND MO (http://www.nypost.com/sports/yankees/51086.htm)
By JOEL SHERMAN
THE worst starting pitcher in the American League in 2005 is not available to the Yankees on Thursday, and that actually qualifies as a dispiriting fact.

This could be start of something big

August 9, 2005


For franchises with more than a century of service to the American League, it's remarkable how little history the Yankees and White Sox share.

They haven't so much been rivals as opponents, brought together occasionally by the schedule and separated by a division system based loosely on geography. Rarely have they been contenders at the same time, for which Chicago must bear the brunt of the responsibility.

From the John Harper article:



Advantage, Yankees? It could be if they ever meet in October. After all, any team that has Timo Perez hitting fifth, as the Sox did last night, surely has some proving to do. Indeed, the Sox looked like a team in need of a big bat in the middle of the lineup - maybe that's why they made a play for Ken Griffey Jr. at the trading deadline. Naturally, there was no mention of Carl Everett, one of our top RBI guys, recovering from a minor injury. This moron talks as though Timo would even be IN our starting lineup in the playoffs...

Idiots. :rolleyes:

Idiots. :rolleyes: Ha! I was just waiting for someone from NY or on ESPN (is there a difference?) to point out how weak we are because we had Timo hitting 5th last night. While you can't argue that Timo Perez is the ideal number 5 hitter, all it takes is a little research to see what's really going on....:rolleyes:

Well, if you say so, boss....

They haven't so much been rivals as opponents, brought together occasionally by the schedule and separated by a division system based loosely on geography. Rarely have they been contenders at the same time, for which Chicago must bear the brunt of the responsibility.

What garbage. And it isn't even factual. I guess
this "writer" doesn't even know his history. Or maybe it's just
too painful for him....

Guess it's time to hit the books again. :rolleyes:

Actually, they don't. They just save that crap for their tabloids in hopes that we won't read it, or at least call them on it.

Wow do they blow everything out of proportion. If Rowand had hit a late game-winning HR after his defensive performance they may have demanded that Steinbrenner steal him immediately and get his plaque ready.

The late 50's and early 60's was definitely a time when these two teams were rivals. Especially 1964, when the Sox won 98 games but the Yankees won 99.

Idiots. :rolleyes:

Um, doesnt a team that has Aaron Small, Shawn Chacon and Al Leiter in their rotation have a lot more to prove? Not to mention their awful bullpen before you get to Tom Gordon and Rivera. Their pitchers can't go 7 because they're so awful, so they cant get to Rivera and Gordon a lot of the time. The best case scenario for the Yankees is that they end up like the 2000 White Sox: mash their way into the playoffs. But quite honestly, their defense is worse than the bad one we featured in 2000 and they dont have a solid bullpen like we did in that year.

So who really needs to prove something? Is it really the White Sox? I think not.
