Dude, you're grade A, straight up delusional. I'll quote his first paragraph for you: Where in the hell do you extract ANYTHING about 2004 there ? LOL!!?! Pretty clear that there is at least one person that is obsessed with 2004, but it's not a Yankees fan. I mean, do you really think there is a Yankees fan alive that loses sleep over the fact that Mariano Rivera blew a possible clinching game in that series ? By all means, go review Mo's postseason stats. Maybe you missed it, but Mo also blew the save and took the loss in game 7 against Arizona. Guess what ? We all survived and got over it. The really funny thing is you seem to have no idea that the Yankees flat out STUNK for years before they won in 1996. Does that somehow detract from their previous success ? Or since ? Sorry, it doesn't. Every year stands on its own and on bulk, those years all add up to something far more significant for the Yankees than the Sox. You want to celebrate a specific time period you think the Sox were better ? Good for you. Yankee fans have a long list of similarly sized time periods to choose from when the Yankees were significantly better, including one very recent time period.
