so you're basically saying, you don't want to make it to the world series 6 out of the last 7 years, and you dont want to have 26 or 27 or however many championships? right...... very logical.
(PS, im not a yankee fan, i actually loath them)
I know this sounds weak, and you can call me an idiot(I really dont care), but I want to win a World Series legitamally, with team chemistry, and respectable guys. Thats how the Yankees used to win World Series! Then again, if the Sox do win a world series, Boston will burn down.....
typical excuse used by a team that cant win the big one. Its bulls*** and you know it. You know u dont mean that. Ur telling me if Mr. Henry finally opens up his purse and just paints the town red and buys a championship, you wont be happy?? You wont be at your favorite pub downin a Sam Adams?? HA. Dont kid yourself man. Just swallow your pride, take it like a man, and move on.

Legit? Trading isn't legit? Free agency is legit too?
Chemistry is better served for the school systems. Very overrated in bb. Those 77-78 NYY teams had Martin and Reggie going at it. Try rooming with the 97 Marlins of KBrown, Bonilla, and Sheffield. Maybe the bad boys of bb, the 86 Mets can come back?
Boston has a bad record of prospects tanking. Nixon was a exception, but there have been tons of Casey Fossums and Brian Roses.

Maybe the Red Sox would send Kim back to Arizona, with Nixon. Arroyo is supposed to be a future stud.
I'd like to see this happen just to watch the reaction here and with the general public. The outcry would be funny to observe.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
What I found interesting is the part about Cashman sticking his nose in. I understand the guy's doing his job but come on, like he's the gatekeeper who allows other deals to happen. No one has to ask for his permission to make deals.
