    It is kind of funny that the Rangers won the WS, lead by two pitchers that the Yankees didn't believe were good enough to win in the post-season. 8 of the Rangers 13 wins.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

      Oh, trust me. Us Yankees fans are fully aware of this... (I never could understand the Montgomery trade. Useless in the end.)

        Reminds me of the dig Mark Grace gave to the Cubs after winning the World Series with the DBacks. After playing the first 13 of his 16 major league seasons on Chicago's north side, he said upon winning a World Series with Arizona "I wasn't good enough to play first base for the Chicago Cubs, but I was good enough to play first base for the World Champions."

        And Bruce Bochy sure does know how to win a world series.

          • For the first time since 1985 the Hanshin Tigers are Japan Series champions.

            They celebrated by tossing a guy dressed as Colonel Sanders into the river.

              The story behind the link to the Tigers and Colonel Sanders is wild.

              Good for them!

                Japanese baseball as a whole is wild. I’ve gone down the rabbit hole on NPB and it is fascinating stuff.

                • Craig Counsell narrowed his rose pick to two teams: staying with his boyhood team where he became the franchise's winningest manager, or following his long term GM pal David Stern and becoming a NY Met.

                  Instead, the Cubs swoop in and hire him before notifying David Ross of their plan.

                  Carlos Mendoza hired by the Mets away from the Yankees.

                  And now the Brewers need a new skipper...

                          As much as I loved having the local kid be the hero, his post season record left a lot to be desired. I know a good portion of that is the talent on hand, but...

                          I appreciate what he did and look forward to what the new guy can do. Just as long as it isn't another 30 years of bullsh*t.

                              I'm just shocked the Cubs are showing out that much money for a guy who hasn't won a title while screwing the catcher and manager who did... Granted didn't just a manager... But also help lead that team to a near playoff spot with a roster that in my opinion shouldn't have been there.
                              Could be a very interesting offseason for the Cubs
