Thanks for the data; that was only 6 years ago; wonder why I forgot it. Just curious if you know the scores of the first 4 games of the 2004 World's Series? Did the Yankees shut out Boston in any of the earlier games like San Francisco has done with the Rangers?

2004 League Championship Series - Boston Red Sox over New York Yankees (4-3) - Baseball-Reference.com

2004 World Series - Boston Red Sox over St. Louis Cardinals (4-0) - Baseball-Reference.com

You seem a bit confused. The Yankees were not in the 2004 World Series, they lost the AL championship series to Boston. Boston played St. Louis in the WS.

See above links for scores.

Right, in ESPNs presentation the Yankees/RedSox matchup might as well be the World Series, but it is in fact, not.

If by go crazy you mean rip the bong and say, "duuuuuuude" then yes, crazy indeed.

I kid I kid, Im not hating on SanFran or the beloved herb they celebrate, I just wanted to take a shot since I am really jealous of whoever wins

This is the most advantageous position the Giants have been in since winning in 1954.

In the '62 Series, the Yankees won the first, the third, the fifth and the seventh games, so the Giants were never better than even at any point.

In '89 they were swept by the A's.

In '02, they trailed the Angels 2 games to 1, won the next two and lost the final two games. At best they enjoyed a one game advantage when they led 3 games to 2.

Now they lead 3 games to 1. If the Giants should lose the next three, you could argue that last night was the zenith of the franchise's fortunes in the last 56 years.

The counter argument might be that the zenith was the top of the 7th inning in Game Six of the '02 Series. The Giants had a 5-0 lead and were nine outs away from the championship.

THIS is a good time to use Feliz.

The Rangers are losing. It isn't a save situation. There isn't a save situation looming. Nothing to save Feliz for.

You use your best pitcher NOW because you can't afford to give up anymore runs.
