Yankees into 9th year of an 86-year curse

The Red Sox came to New York City on October 20, 2004 with an 86-year curse and went home with a pennant. Where did the curse end up? In the Bronx Bombers’ clubhouse, of course.

The Yankees most recent World Series win was in 2000, culminating an incredible four World Series wins in five years. That goes to show what modern medicine can do for an overpaid team.

With the curse successfully passed over to the Evil Empire, their next World Series victory will be in October 2086. It will be a life-long wait for many fans, but the years of disappointments will be character builders for these stalwart supporters, making the victory in 2086 that much sweeter.

So here’s to you, my Pinstripe loving friends: May your wait be long and exasperating.

  1. As usual Randy, your opinion is extremely logical and one that I completely agree with!

  2. Consider this for a moment, Dave Roberts is called out in Game 4 2004 ALCS. Roberts is called out quite likely 2007 doesn't happen either. The good news is that is not what happened.

  3. You could also speculate about what would've happened in 2003 if Pedro wasn't left in and if Boone wasn't served up a big fat knuckle ball sandwich.

  4. Wakefield is effective when there is no rotation on his pitches. If you watch a replay of the pitch to Boone you can see at least two rotations of the ball. When that happens is when you get the 78 mph meatball.
