Shocker -- Squawker Jon and I had an argument over today's New York Post cover. I left a message telling Jon to check it out -- it features, of course, Alex Rodriguez hitting a homer to help beat the Boston Red Sox and put a damper on Fenway Park's 100th anniversary celebration, with the headline "100 Years of Ass Kicking."Anyhow, here is the email I received from Jon in return, with the subject line "The Math Is a Little Off':Since 2003:Championships: Red Sox 2, Yankees 1Pennants: Red Sox 2, Yankees 1Head-to-Head Playoff Series: Red Sox 1, Yankees 0Nice "Met math" we have going there. 100 years gets cut down to seven. Actually, make that six, because Jon is not even including the 2003 ALCS or 2003 World Series in his calculations.So, Jon, if you want to cut 100 years down to six, I have a few suggestions for the years to pick:1936-1941:Championships: Yankees 5, Red Sox 0Pennants: Yankees 5, Red Sox 0or maybe these six years:1949-1954:Championshi...
