Lovingly borrowed from Yankees 2000 About the best thing you can say about the Yankees' Series victory is that it's been too long since the last one -- in which they defeated our beloved Mets -- for their fans to have achieved total douchebag status.

I talked to my mom earlier today, and she had this to say about the World Series: "I lost any respect I had for Charlie Manuel after what he did yesterday. He knew he couldn't beat CC with Joe Blanton, so instead of trying to win by the power of their own offense, they compromised CC's comfo ... More >>
Ahh, much better. The Yankees beat the Phillies in a much-needed, if technically not "must-win" Game 2, with A.J. Burnett outdueling old friend Pedro Martinez. The Phillies took an early 1-0 lead in the 2nd with an RBI single from Matt Stairs, but the Yanks answered in the 4th with a solo s ... More >>

As I've previously noted, t ... More >>
