Just reported by McCarver during today's Phils-Mets Fox-ruined telecast:

He was talking about Ortiz, and how the Yanks have publically said they wanted him and then comes out with this: "Several Yankees players told me that before game 4 of the 2004 ALCS several Red Sox players came up to them and said, 'Good luck in the World Series.'"

If true, what an amazingly audacious, nefarious plan to set up the Yunks for the ultimate choke that was yet to come.

Then again, it's McCarver. Perhaps on Planet Tim that happened, but probably not on Planet Fenway. I seem to recall Millar telling anyone who would listen, "Don't let us win tonight, etc." So it wasn't him. Who could it have been? My money's on Damon. Only he would have been stupid enough to say such a thing, while at the same time being cunning enough to start paving his golden road to New York. So he's one it's up to you, readers. Who else would have uttered such a ridiculous statement? Or is McCarver just a bigger moron than we ever thought possible? Discuss.

Notice that "JuanDamon" is bigger than he was in '04";

Must be one of those "Strong Shots" his old friend Jason, might've given him.

If FOX wanted to really clean up, money-wise, they could sell sponsorships for every dumb comment made on "FOX Saturday Baseball":

Tim could easily BANKRUPT Microsoft, by himself.

McCarver was told that by Jon Lieber on his TV show at the start of the 2005 season. Lieber has never revealed exactly which Sox players said that, so I put NO creedence to it at all. I have not heard that story mentioned ANYWHERE else, not in any book or article about the 2004 Red Sox, and NOT by one other Yankee player.

McCarver can repeat that story until the day he dies, but until Lieber names names, I think it's total BS, and I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

No sleep lost; just thought it was a terrifically retarded McCarver moment...

From July 1st, 2005, by me: "surely you've heard the rumors of 'certain' Red Sox players congratulating the yanks after it was 3-0. Well, to that I say... It worked, didn't it?"

So, yeah, the story's been around, but I like how we had the same reaction to it, heh heh.
