If the throwing error isn't Wilson's fault, then who's fault is it? The closest person he was throwing at was Jeter. He missed the base and the area around it by a good 10 feet. It was absolutely his fault. I don't understand how blame can be placed anywhere else.

As a Yankee-hater, I was very happy with the decision to bench Soriano and Giambi. As a fan of Torre's, I hated those same decisions. Giambi is your big time, big money bat. His knee is too sore to play? It's the fucking World Series. Suck it up. He gets to recuperate that knee for the entire winter after Sunday. Torre should have made him play. Even with Nick Johnson being on fire, Giambi is still the big money guy. Might as well see if you can get some use out of him besides a pinch hit homerun. As for Soriano, that's just dumb. He's young. He's been striking out an ungodly amount of times. But don't bench him for Enrique fucking Wilson. Move him down the lineup. Do something productive with him besides having him pinch hit.

If Beckett starts Saturday, this will be the defining start of his career. If he can go into the Bronx and win game six to shut down the Yankees then he's something extremely special. It will be fun to watch.

Most important game of the year, Joe Torre's job on the line, Petitte pitching for a contract, and Josh Beckett, on three days rest, comes into The House That Ruth Built and throws a five-hitter. If it wasn't confirmed in 2001, it is now.

Game over, World Series over, Yankee Dynasty over. Yankees lose, Yankees lose, theeeeeeee YANKEES LOSE!!!!

How sweet it must be, to sit at home, just like your favorite team, and watch somebody else play in the world series and lose. Congrats Red Sox Fans!

It's more fun than you'd think. Granted, if it were the Indians the Marlins just beat, I'd be less happy, but the Yankees lost, and it's always fun to celebrate Yankee defeats.



Josh Beckett is God. If you don't believe me, ask the Yankees (or what's left of them after Georgie Porgie goes nuts).

Beckett came through and then some. Absolutely the defining game of his career. Where so many other young pitching studs failed, Beckett came through. Fuck Prior, fuck Wood. Fuck the Oakland staff. Beckett is the real deal. To walk into the Bronx and close out a World Series shows that this kid has balls for days. There was nothing that the Yankees could do. He paralyzed their whole lineup and never flinched. The era of Beckett has begun.

Holy cow... what a performance by Beckett in both the NLCS and the World Series. That was as close to domination as I've seen in a while. The fact that he'll be around for the next 10-15 years is downright scary. What's just as surprising is he beat Pettitte to do it, who was 17-4 in postseason games in his own right, so no small feat there. Sometimes, Yanks fans just have to sit back and deal with the fact they got shut down in their own house for the first time in a while. Goodbye, any so-called "aura." The Yanks can be beat at home.

I think it's safe to say that Josh Beckett will dominate the future of pitching in the majors. He's only 23?! This kid is going to be untouchable, barring any injury or other unforeseen circumstance.

I dunno - it's the skeptic in me, but I'd hold off on the coronation ceremonies of Josh Beckett as the Next Big Thing. Will he be good? Yeah. Really good? Most likely. Will he dominate? Not so sure about that; there's still a ton of really good, really young pitching. I think we're seeing a transition era in baseball from dominant hitting to dominant pitching, and this will be fun for all parties involved.

As for Beckett? He'll be at the forefront... but I don't think he's the frontrunner.

I'd like to see Beckett stay off the DL and stop developing blisters for a full season.

cfgb is right. Out of curiousity, was anyone else wondering what the Rangers were trying to do this offseason? "Hey, we have bad pitching. Let's solve this problem by getting more offense and a potentially volatile clubhouse!
