Will the Yankees continue their division crown dominance?

Will Mr. April be able to sustain his current output ("putout" backwards) of home runs ("runs home", backwards) so as to rightfully claim the title of Mr. May?

We'll just have to let them play the games -- and see.

Probably the more pressing question at the moment is, will the Yankees salvage a win in Boston. And/or beat the Sox new poster boy Fuzzy Dice.

It is very hard to sweep a series, favorable pitching matchup or no. I'm pretty happy with what the Sox have done so far and a win tonight would be gravy.

I will be very disappointed if the Red Sox don't sweep.

I am amazed at the work you are putting into this, liq. You are owed several beers. I appreciate it.

I don't know why we're all getting so excited about tonight's game. These games don't mean anything. First, they are in April and don't count in the standings. Not really. And second, it is terribly unfair for the league to make the Yankees play when one of their players is hurt.

Sometime, it would be nice for a rival fan to say, "wow, you beat us. Congrats"

(The last time I saw that was when Felix Hernandez had just a fantastic performance against the Sox.)

Felix was filthy against the Red Sox in DiceK's debut.  It reminded me of Kerry Wood against the Astros - I can't remember if it was his rookie year or is 2nd year - it just looked like none of the hitters even had a chance.

Nice job on the newest version. I guess this is what robust means.

If I can figure out how to -- I'll try to export the posts from that other forum but it might not be compatible.  The old forum can be viewed here:
