oh yeah, John Henry.

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.....
If you won the series, you'd be happy. With some key free agents ready to leave, this would be a really nice legacy to attach your name to (meaning Henry). I would be worried about RJ's knee though.
Of course I'd be happy, I'm not a frickin' moron, but I'd rather win one with the guys we have. Saying team chemistry is over-rated really shows your ignorance too. Why did the Sox get so far last year? Why did the Marlins win the World Series last year? Yes, they had damn good teams, but they also had good team chemistry. And NO, I wouldn't be happy if the Sox went out and spent $200 million dollars. In fact, I'd probably be pretty pissed, and I doubt if I'd make my annual trip to Fenway. Maybe this doesn't make sense to you, but it's clear as day to me. Maybe I like being the underdog. Maybe, I don't want to be hated by half the country. And maybe, I like to have players on my team who don't make $100 million dollars. I like the players who are getting their first shot at the big leagues, and are playing for their respect, and their next paycheck. Or, most likely, I just really don't like the Yankees, or how they conduct their business. And for your information, no I didn't want Arod to come to Boston.

I don't think Bostons clubhouse would ever get labeled a great chemistry? Seattle has one of the best clubhouses around, great chemistry. They haven't won. You don't have to like, or play gin rummy with your team, to win.

They'll get a better deal? How so? The Yankees have almost NOTHING to give up.
They have $$$$$$$$ and have proven to take on hefty contracts. By better deal I don't mean prospects. Why do you think A-Rod went to NY and not Boston? NY gave more cash.

AZ is simple to explain. Go look at RJ and Schillings numbers. They were unhittable, they carried the team. Beckett basically carried the Marlins in the post season. Without RJ/Schilling, and Beckett, neither team comes close to winning. The Angels were the worst team i ever saw win, so maybe the rally monkey helped?
