Why do I feel like I'm opening Pandora's Box?
Boston's cut the AL East lead from 10.5 to 3.5 after last night. Quite frankly, I'm surprised no one's mentioned anything yet but the majority of Yankee fans here also haven't been around much lately (not calling anyone out, you guys probably had vacations and stuff. Wish I had a vacation
Yes, it's still 3.5 games but you've got to say, the Sox are playing amazing ball right now and there HAS to be concern from Yankee fans. I don't buy the "well we got no-hit by Houston last year and went on a roll after". Their pitching was much better last year than it is now. When you're relying on 50-year-old El Duque to stop the bleeding, there's got to be some worries.
Anyone who claims the Yankees rotation is better than the Sox right now is insane. Not even close. Truthfully, no one in that rotation scares me. It's a good thing all their hitters can slug or they might have been caught by now.
So here it is Yankee fans, if any of you guys are still around here. Are you guys legit concerned? You're still in the driver's seat and have a great team but damn, you've got to be concerned don't you?
Oh and save the 1918 stuff. I want a good, intelligent discussion here. Nothing about 1918, Dent, Buckner or any of that crap. We're talking about 2004.
