You Sox fans. They Yanks are so far back in the rear view mirror and you're still thinking about them. Booga Booga!

The New York Post has not been to kind to the Yankees:

http://www.nypost.com/seven/08142008...ast_124357.htm

I'm not horribly upset that the Yankees (seemingly) aren't making the playoffs. They had a rash of injuries and only 2 of their original 5 starters remain. It sucks but thats the way it is. After 13 straight playoff years that included 8 straight division titles, 6 AL Pennants and 4 WS Championships I can't be too disappointed by one bad season. It just sucks that the last game ever at Yankee Stadium will be a regular season game against the Orioles. Blah.

4 home runs in a row for the pale hose:

Thome (with 2 on)
Konerko
Ramirez
Uribe

Royals went for a new pitcher against Uribe... didn't work.

Brad Ziegler just gave up a run for Oakland. First one in nearly 40 innings. His ERA skyrocketed to 0.22.

Looks like I picked the right game to go to.

Didn't even get a chance to appreciate Konerko's shot since it was the first pitch and people were still going nuts from Thome's shot.

Apparently this is only the sixth time in MLB history it's happened. Sounds like Boston did it last year against the Yankees and the Dodgers did it the year before. Interesting note: JD Drew was involved both previous times.

I think I'll be saving this ticket stub.

Not to diminish the Sox' accomplishment at all, but the Dodgers game (9/18/06 for those who want to look it up) had to have been the most incredible to see. They hit 4 in the bottom of the 9th, including 2 off of Trevor Hoffman to tie the game. Fell behind by a run in extra innings and then hit a 2-run walk-off home run to win the game. All this by a team that was last in the league in home runs entering the game. Of course, it's the opinion of most that there were only a handful of fans who actually witnessed this since Dodgers fans have a certain reputation for leaving games early...

Oh no doubt that's a much more dramatic and memorable event.

The Sox were already up 3-2 when this happened, and Thome's shot was enough to give the pitching some breathing room. The other 3 were just icing.
Not to mention the Sox have been known to hit a few homers from time to time.

Unless I'm mistaken, when the Red Sox did it, they did it in the fewest pitches.

and it was on a Tuesday not a Thursday, the sun was shining it wasn’t overcast….

In the end does it really matter how many pitches it took?

Since I guess is the Friday thread too..

Apparently, the Yanks sent Melky to the minors and waived Sexson..

Thats surprising. Not that Melky is anything special but its not like they can do a whole lot better in CF and in the 9 hole. He's still better than Damon and Gardner/Christiansen in center and still better than pretty much anyone else they have in the 9th batting spot.

I guess this mean more Betemit at first and Giambi DH? Not idle if you ask me. Now the bench is depleted.

Sexson sucks. I still think it was a good idea to pick him up and give him a shot in case the change of scenary got him back to previous form. It didn't. Richie Sexson = Fail.
