The Yankees have won 26 world series and the Red Sox have won 7. They have 39 Pennants, and the Sox have 12.

Being real smart and real old, I done seen a lot of baseball. But I gotta teall you, them Yankees aint near as good as the Paulding Pipers. They got a new pitcher this year, he a senior, and he bee just about as good as I ever done saw in high school baseball right here in the TVA conference. Them Orocola Yankees are real no good this year, all there seniros done graduated or got arrested or done got themselves killed, and so I don't think the conference pennent is going to go to them tis year. You just plain wrong any way you slice it buddy. See, I known my sports, and them Yankees just isn't no good!

regardless of which is true, abney317 gets my vote as they actually debated the topic.

off topic i do like how oberbeck appreciates HS baseball which could be argued does not get asa much recognition as it deserves

well its obvious through stats that this is true. no one can argue that. but being the typical yankee fan you are, your trying to hold on to old glories from the 30's and 40's because of the teams recent downfall. That would be like me saying last year that the celtics are the best ever because they won so many championships. It doesn't matter what happened in the past with these teams, its all about now. and for now the sox are champs and the yanks aren't. So face it accept it and stop clinging to the penants/championships of the past. (you should thank the sox for a number of them anyways ie. RUTH)

Can't debate that, lol. The Yankees are a powerhouse team, even if they do suck nowadays.
