    No number. She's just happy it is time for her first Spring Training.

    No, he's just old and nostalgic for the old days, imagining them to be better than they were. He was a great pitcher but no where near Mariano and the great ones today. I truly feel sorry for him.

    It all comes down to pitching as we found out in game 7. I think we are still a "stopper" short in that area.

    Ah,
    A triple negative meant to confuse us (at least me).

    That's actually a pentanegative. Not easy to do.

    I stand corrected.. Now if a double negative is a positive, and so forth a penta negative is a Positive. So is there an easier way to say that. My brain hurts, I think I'll make myself a Vodka neat and ponder the wisdom of that statement if I can remember what it was.

    I count six negatives, so this statement must be a positive.

    The Yankees are the team to beat.
    Forgive me for taking the Contrarian view
