It really is close to do or die for the Yankees now. Their next 6 games are with the Mets and Red Sox. If the next week doesn't go well I can't see Torre surviving.

CHICAGO - If the Yankees' current 12-game stretch is truly going to set the course for the rest of their season, then Shea Stadium might be the site of the Bombers' perfect storm.
Of course, the Andrea Gail wound up at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. Is the Yankees' season headed for its own disastrous ending?

Yesterday provided the perfect illustration: the way the Yankees are going, it's impossible to imagine them pulling off the type of miracle rally the Mets used to stun the Cubs at Shea.
Indeed, while the Mets were scoring five runs in the ninth, the Yankees were slogging along here in a 4-1 loss to the White Sox, not only mired in their team slump for another day but showing off some of the worst situational hitting you'll ever see.

I think that red sox fans are so obsessed with the yankees that they follow that team more than their own.
There is a story about a boy whose mother protected him from his abusive father all his young life.As an adult his mother died,and though sad,he didn't shed a tear.When his father passed the boy was shocked and surprised that he couldn't stop crying.The object of his total obsession(hatred for his father)was all that he lived for.
If the yankees do indeed fall out of the race,there will be a hole left where the obsessive hatred used to be and any victory will feel hollow indeed.

The story rings true. Extra Innings sells very well in Boston to watch NYY. The Yanks have a strong radio network in New England Sterling and Dame Edna are as well known as our annoucers. The fans hate each other. Perfect example. In early 05 I was at a Starbucks at State and Pearson. Guy walks in with a NY hat and sees my 04 champions hat and growls "Don't say a @*?!#$&+ word. I just smiled and said "don't have to, you already did" :tongue:

Now can you have a must win series in May? I think for the Yankees they are very close to that as Boston goes into the Bronx the next 3 nights. NYY has to win 2 out of 3 just to stop the bleeding and a Boston sweep might be the end of not Torre but Cashman.

This is the largest lead Boston has had this early in a season in franchise history but it is still May. I am trying to remind others that the last time Boston went 30-13 to start the season they finished 10 1/2 games behind NYY and 6 behind Anaheim for the Wild card in 2002.

A White Sox fan might say "who cares" about NYY. The reality is come September Chicago may well be in a dogfight with NYY for the wild card. But if NYY continues to struggle then the Wild Card almost certainly comes from the Central.

The jugular is not in play

Or, so Iíve been told by members of a Red Sox fan base that is increasingly panicky the more their team's AL East lead grows.
Itís not over. You sound foolish.
Youíre gonna curse them.
Now I know who to blame.
Itís only May!!!!
Remember what happened in 1978
Itís true. While the word, "over" never graced this space in reference to anything other than praying it would apply to the disaster that is Jack Bauerís latest adventure, perhaps we were too bold about this whole AL East deal. After all, the Red Sox continue to just pad their divisional lead, which is now up to 10Ĺ games (http://pressherald.mainetoday.com/story.php?id=107185&ac=PHspt), and the only thing many of their loyal fans can do is wonder when the roof will come caving in.

Historically this is where the Red Sox always stumble as they never can put NYY away. But the reality is all Boston needs is one in the Bronx and the lead will stay at 9 1/2. Something has changed however. The one thing New York could always count on was beating Boston but 2004 shattered that.

The same thing happened in the NHL. Montreal was a dynasty that rivaled the Yankees and for 44 years the one thing they could count on was beating Boston in the playoffs. (1944-88) Many years Boston had better teams but the Habs always found a way. Since 1988 Montreal has only won one cup and that was a fluke year when Pittsburgh got knocked out by the Islanders.

In any event these should be 3 very interesting games.

After Mike Mussina's last start, he indicated that two extra days of rest were partially responsible for his poor outing against the White Sox.
Last night, Mussina made no excuses. He just pitched badly, and he made sure to let everybody know that he was fed up with his performance over the first two months of the season.

The Yankees are in free fall, and they are taking the fortunes of many New Yorkers with them.
As the Los Angeles Angels finished their three-game sweep of the Bronx Bombers on Sunday, grim-faced fans streamed past rows of unsold Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter souvenir shirts.
Bars - normally filled with exuberant fans after a home win - were half empty.

When I think how I defended the Yankees to their legions of detractors, it hurts. It really hurts.

I was so loyal, so trusting, so willing to shell out $165 so I could buy Major League Baseballís Extra Innings package and watch all the games from my house in California.

Fenway, this has to be a dream season for you so far. I mean, the Red Sox are about to run away with the East by June and the Yankees are in the part of the standings usually reserved for the O's and D-Rays. I don't think a Carmines fan could have scripted it any better. The only thing that can slow Boston's charge is the injury bug. If they can stay healthy, I don't see any way they won't win that division.

What is amazing is that the Yankees have never had more than four consecutive losing seasons; they have only done this twice, 1989-1992 and 1912-1915. They had consecutive winning seasons from 1926 to 1964. The sheer rarity of them losing is what makes this season all the much better.

Any time, Or anywhere,
Just look over your shoulder
Guess who'll be standing there

Hey, hey, we're the Yankees
And people say we monkey around.
But we're too busy playing
To put anybody down.

Ut oh the fire is out

Not only have they made up 5 games on Boston in 11 days but now only trail Detroit by 5 1/2 in the wild card.

Yes, but does the Boston Globe acknowledge them?? i won't treat them seriously as a threat until the Boston Globe (http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com/vbulletin/showpost.php?p=1250993&postcount=23) does.

OF Bobby Abreu is hitting .500 (19-for-38) in June with six doubles, nine RBI and 10 walks, raising his average from .228 to .272.

Put that in front of a slugger like A-Rod and they are exponentially more dangerous. I still think they need another starter for the playoffs. Sox already took care of Pettitte, Oswalt, and Clemens. So why wouldn't teams be able to handle Pettitte Mussina and Clemens?

Their lineup is going to feast on bad pitching...Torre said the first goal was to get to .500 which seemed next to impossible 10 days ago and now they only 1 under.

Then they start looking at the wild card....and then Boston. They are back.

Even good pitching will struggle against that lineup. They came through Chicago and scored early, and we have great pitching. Then they got to our awful bullpen and it was a massacre.

Give the Northeast media an off day and the stories start

NY DAILY NEWS

Spirit of '78 (http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/yankees/2007/06/12/2007-06-12_spirit_of_78.html)

It has been a popular topic, whether Ron Guidry is going to the bullpen at the Stadium or walking city streets: "People will stop me and say, ĎThis reminds me of something - 1978," Guidry said recently. "ĎDon't you think?'"

No complete and utter runaway. Sorry. You'll be watching those Yankees scores every night, just like always. There's no need to panic. A big lead provides insulation when problems occur. You must play the "If Somebody Had Told You" game.

You know, if on Opening Day somebody had told you the Red Sox would be 9 1/2 up on June 12, you'd have said, "Nah, no way," and you know it.

Don't panic, but be concerned. Concern is good. It keeps you on your toes. Anyway, you want the Yankees to be good. They're more hateable when they're good.

And that's the general idea around here, isn't it?

Gordon, the umpire watch continues. Plate umpire Bob Davidson helped Mariano Rivera choke off a White Sox rally in the 8th inning while the game was still close by calling a pitch on Thome neck high a strike and then calling one on Konerko ankle high. It was a joke. Pierzynski was ejected when he reacted after striking out to end the inning. The Yankees are now 6-2 since their meeting with the commisssioner's office about the umpires and the Red Sox are 2-6. If these injustices are not publicized the Red Sox will most surely blow the division like in 1978.
