    How is it that Yankee Fans want to hang there hat on 26 Championships. Meanwhile, Red Sox Fans who in most cases are Celtics fans aren't going around talking about having the most NBA Championships. They are focused on getting #17.

    Then there is the local football team too but thats already a different thread....
    Well im a Boston fan of all teams i think the biggest reason i dont go talking about 16titles is because they were over 20yrs ago now, wow thats hard to believe. I do agree though that fans of other teams seem to hold onto the past and what they accomplished more so than the future, and i dont mean Yankee fans, the problem with them is they got spoiled too much too soon , they used to be like Pats fans saying ohhh we won it 3 of the last 4yrs, now that they have been removed from winning for a long stretch its just now all about the whole past even before all the people who are posting it were even born.

    I know he had a great september this past season and he's probally the reason the Yankees made it to the playoffs but his numbers usually drop off in the post season. IIRC he did better during the post season for this year but for the highest paid player, he has to deliver when it counts.

    True. In the end, though, I'm happy that A-Rod is a Yankee. He will succeed in the playoffs. There's just no way a player can be so good during the regular season does not come through. It's the law of averages. He will have his day, and I will be a happy man when that day comes.

    (My previous posts of displeasure when he opted out were more a reaction to thinking he was rejecting me, a Yankees fan first, but also a huge fan of his.)

Pretty pathetic that we have to dwell on the past that much from such a classy organization, maybe they should worry about the future more, just my opinion, so if the yankees still have 26 and the redsox say have 11 what will the shirts say then? 2nd place is the first loser? I dont get it, i understood it after 2004 but its not luck anymore folks not when you do it twice in 4yrs.

    Well, "Got rings?" is a tad more creative (and politically correct) than "Yankees suck!"

    What's interesting to me about the two championships in four years is that in between the teams were pretty average, at best. I'm not sure if there's a sense of continuity/dynasty yet, but, win another one in '08 or '09, and I'll cry uncle.

    Well i understand its all marketing, and i wouldnt call the redsox a dynasty even if they won one more in the next 2yrs.

    Nice article, thanks.

    These numbers are just so big, I can't get my mind around them.

    I just can't wait until spring training! (After some good days on the slopes, of course....)
