  • I salivate at the thought of spanking the Yankees Opening Day …

  • sithkhan, keep that to yourself; that’s gross, airing out your perversions.
    predictions:
    Curt Schilling will hold six press conferences between now and opening day, providing us with his thoughts on such matters as George Bush’s “progressive” tax cuts, Ayn Rand’s philosophy, his views on his chances of fighting through his ankle injury, and his love for the Hummer.
    Johnny Damon and Kevin Millar will again consult a marketing firm to find another word to describe this special band of characters. “Cowboy” became “Idiot,” “idiot” becomes? Possible words include: “Wild,” “Crazy,” “Blue-Collar,” “Nascar,” and “Down-Home.” Red Sox fans will identify with whatever is chosen. The transformation of Massachusetts becomes complete (the election of Mint merely a sign of things to come). Once a staunch Democratic base, it becomes a red state.
    The Yanks will jump out of the gate, spanking the Sox in the opening series. The season series will end with a Yankee advantage of 37-2.

  • And one surefire prediction: the Sox will be presented with their championship rings, right in the face of the hated Yanks, on opening day. Oh what a sweet sentence that is.

  • This last fact points to Bud Selig’s utter contempt for the Yankees. When he organized the Casey Fossum for Schilling deal for the Sox, the days of collusion returned. I think Fossum was just traded for Jose Cruz Jr., so I guess he still has the upper echelon value.
    But the Sox are a franchise without dignity; Theo and company must rely on the dirty work of their friends. The Yanks will deal with this travesty with their usual class and dignity.
    I can’t wait until this season starts!

  • The “usual dignity”? What, like punching a clubhouse wall or shoving a reporter?
