Rock Bottom (World Series Game 4 Postgame Notes)

[edit]: I need to not write these sort of posts immediately following the game...

The Red Sox do deserve to be congratulated on winning the series; I have a few close friends that are Sox fans, and I am happy that they are happy.

I'll admit it: This is a dark day to be a Yankee fan.

Any other team wins the World Series while not playing the Yankees, I can easily congratulate them for a job well done...with Boston, every bone in my body repels at the notion, even though it's the classy thing to do.

The pinstripe pride runs too deep in my veins.

Colorado tried to play today, they managed to keep it close, a one run game, but it was too little much too late.

The simple conclusion that can be drawn is that the National League simply is not on the level of the American League. At least, not this season, not this October.

Colorado had a great season, and should not despair. Winning 21 of 22 is no small feat, especially given the time they did it and the situation they were in. Just one other loss and Colorado would not even have made the playoffs.

As a Yankee fan, it won't be easy to go to sleep tonight, knowing what lies ahead, but then again, beating A-Rod and Boston in 2008 will be all that much sweeter...


  1. Colorado went back to being what they were before the 21/22 run. Thanks for checking in on NYYU!

  2. "The pinstripe pride runs too deep in my veins."

    That's not pride. That's being childish. That's a lack of class. Your blog title is claims you're a purist. But you're not at all, because if you were, you'd appreciated good baseball from any team.
