Which Do You Choose?

Assume, if you will, that the Red Sox sweep the Sox of White during this series.

Do you root for the Rangers to sweep the Yankees and lessen our deficit in the East or for the Yankees to sweep the Rangers and increase our Wild Card lead?

Your answer will tell us all about what type of person you truly are...just kidding, I already know all about you.

So what is your answer?

Yankees lose, comprehensively. I can't think of another sane answer to this question.

I'm with Tim... I always root for the Yankees to lose... badly. Always.

Let me put this a different way. Even if the Yankees were in last place and the Sox were vying for a wild card spot against Texas with a one game deficit, I'd still be cheering against the Yankees. I'll admit, two World Series wins in the last five years made me a tad complacent in my dislike for the Yanks... that war right up until the most recent 4 game sweep in the Bronx. Losing 2/3 in Boston only helped fuel the fire. I am now back to full on "at any cost" dislike for the boys in pinstripes.

I'm glad I consider the three of you friends. You have answered the question correctly.

Hopefully you wouldn't keep us as friends if we didn't...

One other piece of this puzzle: the universe is a better place if the Rangers win their first championship before the Yanks win their 27th.

Jim Storer said...

Starting to wonder if Tim is the second coming...?

I was thinking of this very question yesterday. Also prefer to see the Rangers win. Reason being for me? 1.5 games ahead of Texas still feels good going down the stretch, and it would keep the Red Sox within shouting distance of the division. I still haven't ruled that out.

Plus, yeah, I always like to see the Yankees lose, too.

What am I supposed to be the second coming *of*, Jim? ;)
