Seattle won 116, but they didn’t win the championship. The season is there but is erased.”So that is the challenge for Boston as it threatens the wins record this year. Members of the 1998 Yankees say it doesn’t mean very much without a title.“At the end of the day, if you don’t win, you don’t remember.” Posada said.The major league-leading Red Sox began the day with an 87-36 record. They need 30 wins over their last 39 games to break the record.“They’re a great team. They’ve been playing really well,” said Torre, who managed the Yankees for 12 seasons, winning four championships. “But I tell you what, when you get to postseason, there is a whole lot of pressure on you. As proven by Seattle in ’01, you have to remind people that they did that because they didn’t go anywhere. They won the division, but they didn’t beat us.”ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Jeter, a one-time fixture at Yankee Stadium ceremonies, hasn’t made a public appearance at his longtime home since becoming the chief executive officer of the Miami Marlins.The 1998 Yankees finished with a then-AL record 114 wins and added 11 more in the postseason to set a major league record with 125 victories.

Man guilty of street crimes Gang member given

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Montes’ reasons remains unknown. “What do you think?” asked public defender Mark Davis. He declined comment on the case. Booking records show Montes was still being held at the Theo Lacy Facility in Orange as of Tuesday. The robberies happened Aug. 27 in Santa Ana, Sept. 9 in Fullerton, Sept. 15 in Huntington Beach, Sept. 23 in Fullerton and Sept. 25 at a location not named in the criminal complaint. The car burglaries were reported on Sept. 19 and 24 in Fullerton. The charge of injuring an elder adult stems from the Sept. 23 robbery in Fullerton. Montes approached an 82-year-old woman walking to church and held out his hand as if to shake hands, Fullerton police said. A gang member from La Habra will be serving 12 years in state prison for snatching purses from middle-aged and elderly women and for breaking into cars in church parking lots. Alejandro Sanchez Montes, 26, pleaded guilty Oct. 11 to five counts of robbery, street terrorism, inflicting injury to an 82-year-old woman, two counts of burglary, reckless driving, possession of a controlled substance, three counts of fraudulent use of an access card and receiving stolen property, according to Susan Schroeder, public affairs counsel for the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. He also admitted to using a firearm and being in a criminal street gang. “Most people plead guilty because they are in fact guilty,” Schroeder said. “I don’t know why he pleaded guilty.” So the woman extended her hand in return. Police said Montes knocked her down, took her purse and fled. She wrote down a partial description of his getaway car in the margins of her Bible. The crime spree ended Sept. 26 after Fullerton police spotted a Dodge Magnum that had been seen in several of the burglaries and robberies. The Dodge ran a red light, broadsided a Volkswagen carrying two women and hit two other vehicles before stopping. Officers arrested Montes and another man who was later sent back to state prison for parole violation. One of the cars hit was driven by an off-duty Fullerton reserve officer. Records with the California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation show Montes had prior convictions for drug possession, receiving stolen property, possession of a controlled substance for sale and second-degree burglary.
