I don't have to waste time looking up the stats since you've done it for me, but as I wrote in a prior post what have the Pinstripes done for you lately? The Red Sox and their fans have nothing to prove since the Sox have three WS wins in the 21st century vs. only one for the Yanks. In fact, as I got older I realized it's not the Yankees that I dislike but rather their obnoxious fans who either gloat over Yankee wins or divert attention by mentioning past glories. Guys like Jeter and Mariano Rivera, going all the way back to Berra were excellent ballplayers and credits to the game. The only reason I resented DiMaggio and Rizzuto and Mantle and Bauer and Ford and Raschi and Reynolds and Henrich was because of a blowhard on my block named Eddie who constantly bragged about the Yanks of the 1940s and '50s.
