Hold on tight. It'll probably be 86 years until their next one.
Hmmmm... interesting comeback there, Amazinz... which leads me to the question: Which franchise's current situation would I rather have?? The defending champion Red Sox.... OR the 4th place in NL East (20 games under .500) , laughing stock Mets, who's brand spankin' new GM (Omar) appears so far to be as clueless as his two predecessors (Duquette and Phillips). (By the way, do you Mets fans miss Kazmir, AND are the Mets STILL paying Mo Vaughn's $80 million contract?? )
I think I'll pick Boston. Something tells me Vegas will have them as a slightly better bet to win the '05 series than your lovable New York Mutts.
Have a great day.
Wow. Did I hit a nerve? A sensitive Sox fan. Who woulda thunk it?
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

He's not? Well if he's a Yankee fan, than the wise crack is even MORE understandable. This must be a horrible offseason for you guys.
He's a Jays fan.... don't you remember when the Jays traded for Preston's uncle in 1989?
Then he gets a pass from me. I've always liked the Jays. What a buzzkill.
Yeah and I'm a Jays fan but I've always liked the Sox. Hmmm. Shouldn't we hate each other's team since we're in the same division? Anyway the Jays have won more WS over the past 86 years than the Red Sox have so there
BTW Pacman... you take criticism too seriously. If a Mets fan is making fun of your team you can rest assured that it's jest, not arrogance. What do they have to be arrogant about anyway?
"Jack, will you call me, if you're able?"
"I've got your phone number written, in the back of my Bible."

Mr. Met obviously. He's got the biggest head of any mascot in baseball. And, well, you know what they say about mascots with big heads...
Yep. THEY'RE JUICIN!
And now the real scandal breaks...
Damn... can't pile onto the Mr. Met steroid scandal, because, unfortunately, it's a well known fact in Boston that Wally the Green Monster has been on the 'roids ever since the beginning of the '03 season, which is when Jeremey Giambi had his cup-of-coffee with the Red Sox... Coincidence??? I think NOT!
