Just purse your lips and whistle, that’s the thing…

Yep. That just happened. Nope. Still not ready to talk about it…

~L

Texts I received last night:

“Hah. ha.”

“Sux for you.”

“Told you so.”

“Let’s root for the Tigers.”

“Keep your chin up.”

Sigh.

And four missed phone calls.

SIGH.

Oh, and to the eight people that found this blog by searching “Curt Young Dead,” I… I… I just don’t know.

    I am speechless…but I can still type. The only non-negative (refuse to say positive) from this would be Boston didn’t have to deal with all that “Ray Rally” crap in a one-game showdown today. The humiliation of September ended in Baltimore. That was bad enough losing to Bucky’s Beavers, but it would have been much, much worse had the season been extended one additional day only to lose to Damon’s Demons. Kindly now throw your support behind the Phillies to crush whomever comes staggering out of the AL.

    If this makes any sense, I simultaneously feel your pain, but think you kinda deserve it. It’s nothing personal, it’s just that as an Angels fan, I’ve hated the Red Sox ever since the Dave Henderson homer in the ’86 ALCS.

    You should understand that for the rest of us, those of us not fans of the Yankees or Red Yankees, those of us whose teams have spent a decade playing the Washington Generals to your bloated-payroll Globetrotters…when either team fails, it is the same sort of soul-filling pablum that makes people watch soap operas. We all love to watch the rich and famous stumble.

    Honestly, I was hoping the Sawwwwwx would make a playoff game, if for no other reason so I could watch John SLackey have a meltdown…

    So i don’t really have much to say. As someone who doesn’t root for the Red Sox and openly detests the Red Sox and Yankees I took a lot of pleasure watching everything unfold last night.

    With that said, as a Cleveland fan who knows a thing or two or 500 about having my heart ripped out of my butt by a sports team, I feel for you. I really do. That’s no way to end a season. I also hope your liver doesn’t divorce you after the drunked stopper i’m sure your about to put it through.

    With that said… We both hate the Yankees, You probably hate the Rays for obvious reasons, I can’t stand the Tigers sooooo… go Rangers?

    I am also sick of hearing about payroll. Any time either of you would like to switch divisions and have to play real teams instead of Oakland,KC, The white Sox, Seattle and well Cleveland 19 times a year then get back to me.

    If you had to deal with Tampa and the Yankees 19 times a year you wouldn’t even be in the running for a wild card.

      i’m pretty sure tampa wasn’t relevant until about 3 years ago, toronto has been in a state of perpetual suck, and the orioles have been a joke for more than decade.

      i understand you guys have the financial means to go and get whoever you want. i’m not even saying you shouldn’t be able to. that’s how the system is and you use it to your advantage. i wish the indians could/would do that. but what i don’t understand is how you can’t see how every other city with an MLB team gets tired of serving as the farm systems for you and the yankees and why we take pleasure when things blow up in your face.

        I understand your frustrations but you don’t understand that the only reason we pay these players is we have no choice being in this division. You can’t compete with NY if you don;’t unless you suck for ten years and draft pitching.

        The Red Sox would love and support a hard salary cap. Bring it on,.

        YOU have to understand just how sick we as fans of a team that want to win at cost feel when we have to support your organizations to exist.

        Your owner has to have lots of money or he wouldn’t have a team. How is it OUR fault you refuse to pay any of your players? Why do we have to pay for your team?

        It boggles the mind. It would be like you working 60 hours a week while someone else only worked 20 and you had to give 30 percent of your pay to the guy that only works 20 hours a week. I guarantee you that would piss you off.

        That Angel fan is just an idiot and obviously doesn’t know anything about her own team or she wouldn’t be whining about payroll when he team is NUMBER 4.

    I’m truly impressed by your fandom and it has partially inspired this article:

    It has been good to meet your online acquaintance this year, and it has enriched the old blogging experience getting to see how others go through the mill.

    I always try to look for positives once the negative has happened. My sleep patterns won’t be killed in October (watching the playoffs in London is an exercise in sleep deprivation). I can moan at my wife for keeping me awake (she is a fan of the other mob). I hope that the Sox never ever ever mail in a first half of the month like they did this September again, because they will be reminded of this nonsense, so a lesson has been learned. I hope that they realise pitching is the answer. I can also get off this emotional rollercoaster…..

    All the best to you all and see you next Spring….virtually speaking.

      i’m not going anywhere! i think i might almost be ready to talk about it. um. maybe tomorrow.

    And i can totally see your point. like i said it’s not your fault the system is how it is. your doing what any other team would do if they had the financial means to do it. and i agree, revenue sharing isn’t the answer either because teams with the cheap owners will still hoard that money and not put it towards talent on the field. i’m not sure what the answer is to be honest besides finding owners that want to win and will put the money forward it takes to win. steinbrenner always did that and you guys have done it a lot of late because you want to win at all cost. hell, the Indians did it in the mid 90′s with dick jacobs and then he sold the team to cheap ass larry dolan. you have to spend money to make money and to win. some owners don’t get that.
