    But the 78 team was a powerhouse.
    See that fascinates me, I've heard a number of Red Sox fans say the same thing, I know the history of that 78 team but were they better than the 75 team that was a win away from winning it all? And the Eck and Tiant were nice pitchers but that 2004 staff was with stacked

    Yea I know, I've watched the 78 yankees "it don't come easy" video too many times, not the same as living it though.

    2007 was better than 2004. They pretty much dominated MLB all year.

    The 78 team was just awesome though. Bucky "****" Dent.

    And in 75, El Tiante was one of the most hard nosed pitcher I ever saw. The three games they won were all started by Tiant.
    I was born in Cleveland and he was a great pitcher for the Indians when I was a little kid.

    I had "The Morehead Trifecta" as my sig. Giants, Sox and Celtics all champs.

    Right now isn't too bad though. Sox and Uconn hoops. I guess it's the "Morehead Exacta".

    What was great about that 78 team is that even though they blew a 14 game lead, they got down late in the season and went on a tear the last 10 games to catch up and tie it up. Then Bucky Dent hits a lazy fly ball 315 feet that dropped in the net.
