Yankees "Tragic Number" Countdown

Recommended Posts

It's only July 2nd, and the countdown has already begun. The New York Yankees Tragic Number currently sits at 75.

Before this post gets flamed for kicking the Yankees and their fans while they're down, I ask that those Yankee posters who would kick Mets fans or Red Sox fans while they're down refrain from posting in this thread. That covers about 90 % of you.

The difference is that us Yankee fans aren't running away like most of the Mets and boston fans did last year.

I can't speak for other Mets and Red Sox fans, but I was here. I even recall a post made by Bob (of all people) commending me for sticking around 2 seasons ago even when the Mets were having their typical (at that time) .500 season.

I should remind you that what comes around goes around. you can start threads with the anti Yankee pom poms ablazing. but be forwarned, when your heroes are in peril in the fall you might not like what comes around. just sayin'

I'm OK with this.

Then i'll speak for someone who has never started a thread bashing the mets that this crap is getting old.

Oh madmike, don't you get it yet? Fans like you are the reason we take so much joy in the Yankees' failures.

''We''? are you and Jetsfan80 an item? or a team? or do you mean Met fans in general? LOL

Scott has turned me down many times already. Dang wife and kids.

I believe the "we" is indeed "Mets fans", although he may have indicated "we" as meaning "non-Yankee fans" as well. Both apply.

Wow JF80 do you seriously not have anything better to do with your life?

Ahh, the "get a life, because your ideas conflict with mine" comment. Hasn't that been retired yet?

Dude this is NOT a difference of opinion. This is you bashing the yankees for no reason other than to be an ass.

I believe the Mets are better than the Yankees. MasonJet disagrees. And that's really the heart of the matter, isn't it? So yes, it ultimately does come down to a difference of opinion.

And yes, I will bash the Yankees "just to be an ass". I mean, come on, they deserve it.

no but its OK to have 50 posts about a midweek yankee win ...

hahahaha

It's also OK to be a wannabe SABRMETRICS expert and talk about statistics constantly, too.

I hear the Yankees are 258 and the Blue Jays are 251, by the way. That has to be a good sign!

WTF do I care what you think? I'm just saying I'd think you'd have something better to do than pay attention to the magic number of an AL team when the team you like is in the NL.

If you want to tell me that the MuttSoxers here aren't obsessed with the Yankees than you should stop making threads like this.

The Yankees are in trouble no doubt and it's just hilarious that Mets fans care so much about it.

It's tragic number, not magic number. The Mets have a magic number since they are a first place team. As does the leader of your division, the Red Sox.

And yes, I do have better things to do. Independence Day is coming up. It's just fun to take 5 minutes out of my day for these purposes.

I'd rather be a wannabe sabermetrics expert than a wannabe 1930's baseball knowledge expert.

I think you're thinking of blackout. I was not alive in the 1930's, and hence do not make that claim.

So your idea of fun is to bait people on a message board for no reason. You're pathetic.

It worked, didn't it? I even got you to make a personal attack!

Hook. Line. Sinker.

I don't respond well to hypocrites.

You don't respond well to anyone who disagrees with you.

No. I just don't respond well to you.

You were banned 30 days because you went on a tirade against anyone and everyone who would listen. Ever think that maybe WE aren't the problem?

Please don't talk about things you know nothing about.

Another condescending comment from madmike1, how shocking. Your banning was out in the open, and any poster can still read what you wrote that got you banned. So please, spare me on the "this is only between me and the moderators" crap.

Mets fans like to pretend that yankees fans here were riding them hard in 2004 and 2005, and it is complete bullsh#t. Yankees fans couldnt care less about how the mets were doing back then - and it still does not matter.

And all of the mets and red sox fans here are completely jealous of the Yankees success in the last decade, thats why they keep making dumb threads about the Yankees. If they could sign up for 11 straight playoff appearances, 6 pennants, and 4 world series championships, they would all sign up for it before you could blink an eye.

And the 2007 Yankees arent done yet, either.

We are The Yankees, and they're the mets and red sox. We eat a civilized dinner at the head of the table, and they screw around with apple sauce in their high chairs.

Even when their teams are playing better, all they talk about is The Yankees.

Pathetic, really. But can you blame them?

More "holier than thou" talk from Yankee fans. I would LOVE to have the selective memory you have, because I recall Yankee fans being particularly brutal after the 2000 Subway Series.
