    If last week wasn’t enough for you, here’s some more today from Corey Fyke:

    I love the trash talk coming from the Yankee sycophants. “Oh big whoop! You beat Tampa!!! Wowee!”

    You gotta beat who’s on your schedule, losers. Just because the Yankees are basically .500 against Tampa and Baltimore, don’t take it out on me. Go back to your parents’ basement, with your pinstriped futon sheets and your Derek Jeter bobblehead collection, and concentrate on your own team. By the way, what’s happening with your team?

    Oh yeah, you’re 2 ½ games out. The Greatest Pitcher Who Ever Lived, Phil Hughes, looks like Kyle Farnsworth Jr. more than the next Roger Clemens. You almost dropped two straight to Toronto who’s playing without Vernon Wells. Your bullpen is shot aside from Joba Chamberlain and Mariano. Andy Pettitte is running out of gas. Roger Clemens is hurting. And the bloom has come off the Wang, so to speak. Good luck winning a playoff series.

    One week to glory. May the best team win. And I’m fully honest in admitting that the Yanks might catch the Sox, since we’ve already clinched a playoff spot, and Boston’s lineup looks only slightly better than the Royals’ offense without Manny and Youkilis and with Big Papi hurting. But who cares?

    One week to glory.

    Something is missing here.

    Aren’t promises like that usually followed by instructions to gather your new black Nike sneakers, tin foil hats, Kool-Aid cups, and map to the compound?

      LOL Steve,
      It reminds of the time Bobby Bowden made the slogan of Florida State’s season “Let’s roll”

      It turns out they rolled to a 7-5 season.

      This guy sounds like the sports equivalent of Glenn Beck.

      A Toronto team that had just swept the Red Sox. Seriously dude, don’t compare the Yankees beating the Blue Jays to the Red Sox losing to the Blue Jays.

      I think, unfortunately, pretty much every Yankees fan knows a Sox fan like Fyke. You’re better off just screening all of their phone calls and ignoring their emails. It’s the same strange, unhinged parabola of early arrogance and late despair every season. With all the universities in the area, you would think someone would do a clinical study of this annoying behavior.
