....lost 15 of their last 18 games, including their last 7....

Then the won the World Series 4 games to 1 vs. the Mets.

I'm not panicked.

They only won their division by 2.5 games which means they clinched the division during their last series.

That is not necessarily correct.

The easiest scenario is to say they went into their final (3-game) series 5.5 up and lost all three in the final series while 2nd place won all 3. Then, they'd finish 2.5 games up, but would have had the division clinched before that final series.

The 2000 Yankees aren't the 2005 White Sox.

If I remember correctly, Timo Perez was very valuable to the mets in the playoff series' prior to the WS.

I've come to the conclusion that any thread, no matter the subject, will contain one person bashing Timo Perez. I'm not complaining about it, just a thought.

Profound.

I don't think I was saying that they were exactly the same. I was simply stating that a slump like the Sox are in right now can be overcome as history has proven.

True, but our pitching is better. And our hitters WILL come around.

I was thinking Jermaine Dye, but I guess that catch last night will give him a few extra days until its his turn.

I'm not sure but I think the 2000 Yankees were up like 7 games with 7 to play and Boston had like 8 games left and needed to win all of them. I think Boston went on to win like 5 in a row while the yanks dropped 5 and then Boston finally lost clinching the division for the Yanks, I think..... something like that.........
