We are! And you must realize that Manny just might be Manny and not show up. I heard he was hanging with Ricky Williams in the off season.

No whine wedgeroo. Definitely a tougher team than what they started against last year. Everyone knows Oakland cranks it up in the second half. I would rather play some of these teams now instead of when they get hot. What happened to Wakefield? Those butterfly pitches weren't fluttering much... except when they flew over the wall.
Posted by: Eddie

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 04/05/06 05:21 PM

I fell asleep on the game last night...as I did for the opener. I NEED the 7 o'clock games to have any chance. I did see Bowa fall into the trap of "someone will knock them in" in the first inning. That was the telling thing. 3 Ks later Jeter and Judas* are still on base. Yankees lose by a run. When you play 9 the first inning counts Larry!

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 04/15/06 08:35 AM

Just call me Ralph Cramden. I got a BIG MOUTH!!!

I'm a little ticked at the Yankees for not doing something I heard a lot of them preaching about before the season started. Playing some small ball. Jeter, A-Rod, Damon even Sheffield talked about the need for it.

Granted that Baker kid from Minny threw a nice game and Mussina lost it after not getting strike call on Batista in the 7th but in the 8th the Yankees ignored small ball and paid the price.

2 on, no outs, Bernie Williams up (Bernie Williams who said he'll do whatever it takes for the team to win) is NOT given the bunt sign.

Double play, Damon grounds out, inning over, spririt broken, one more in the loss column. If they want to resurrect Earl Weaver just say so don't double speak the fans.

Talk is cheap.

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 04/15/06 09:05 AM

As David Niven once said "News of my demise is premature".

No I know Earl is still alive. I was referring to his approach to baseball.

"Will somebody please hit a 3 run homer so we can get the he** outta here?" Seems the Yankees are espousing Earl's approach.
Posted by: Cal 8

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 04/15/06 09:17 AM

Yes, that was indeed Earls way.
Pitching,defense,and a 3 run homer.
It`s a lost art in the big leagues now to sac bunt,the primadonnas all want to swing for the fences every at bat.
Or they think the club isn`t paying them 10 mil a year to bunt.
Even simple things like hitting behind the runner to move a guy over ,or good baserunning is becoming scarce.
Bunting is more prevelant in the NL with pitchers batting,they do bunt if the situation dictates it.
But some managers fear this as they may get their hand hit by a pitch and be out of the rotation for a while.

Hey Ed? I don't think there's enough room in the Yanks dugout for ANOTHER manager...

Earl will just have to call in his signals from sunny FLA..

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 04/15/06 09:36 AM

Interesting you mention getting your hand hit because I don't see bunters holding the bat the way I was taught in Little League, in the manner that protects your hand. Method I was taught was that you hold the barrel from behind with your thumb and closed index finger cradling the barrel. Now all I see is a full hand wrapped around the barrel.

Analogous to the coach always telling us not to hold onto a chain link fence because a foul ball would smash your fingers.

BASICS, BASICS, BASICS...where have they gone?

I too will apologize Ed although I'm not sure for what. An Oriole fan came on a Yankee thread and added their two cents. I responded. I don't see anything in my post that was a personal attack on this poster, only the team (unless he thinks he really is Cal). I've posted much harsher to Wedgie and his dreaded Red Sox. Anyway I don't want this thread to become like many others, so T-Bone I'm very sorry if you took it personally. I'm glad you started a minor league thread for your beloved Orioles. Happy posting until about June and then I suspect you will fade away along with them.

Tejada batted .536 (15-28), with three home runs, 10 RBI, an .857 slugging percentage and an American League-leading 24 total bases. The 2002 A.L. Most Valuable Player hit safely in all seven games last week and has a hit in all but three games so far this season. Tejada set the pace for the week on Monday when he homered in the first inning to help beat the Angels, 4-2. On Wednesday, Tejada went 3-for-5 with three runs scored in the 18-9 Baltimore win over Cleveland. In Thursday's rubber match he went deep again, collecting three RBI in a 9-4 win over the Indians. The American League's leading hitter at .425, he finished his stellar week with a 4-for-4 day in New York, including his fourth home run of the season. This is the fifth career weekly award for Tejada (previous: 9/26/04).

Other candidates considered were Tejada's Baltimore teammate Brian Roberts (.478, 6 R, 6 SB); Oakland's Nick Swisher (.353, 4 HR, 8 RBI); and Kevin Mench (.381, 3 HR, 12 RBI) and Michael Young (.440, 5 R, 5 3B) of Texas. Pitchers considered for the award were Jose Contreras (2-0, 1.20 ERA, 15.0 IP) of the Chicago White Sox and Kelvim Escobar (2-0, 3.29 ERA, 14 SO) of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Nice win last night but circle Wednesday's game date on your Yankees calendar, Yankee fans. If at the end of the season the Yankees needed "one more game" to have advanced we can point to Wednesday April 26th's game as the one that cost them. 14 walks and only 2 runs. 3 men caught in rundowns to kill innings. 3 total hits against (at best) a Double A starting pitcher. 16 men left on base for the team and a whopping 35 men left on base for each individual batter on the Yankees. 8 runners left in scoring position with 2 outs. ZERO RBIs with 2 outs. Tampa Bay starter McClung throws 114 pitches in 5 innings and then the Yankees are prepared to feast on the TB bullpen...and it is Tampa Bay who feasts on MARIANO RIVERA instead!!!

That was one of the ugliest, most embarrassing games I have ever witnessed.

Like I said, circle the date and remember the day when the Yankees played like little sissy girls against a team that was missing 5 starters.

Maybe the Red Sox can use an over rated player like...DEREK JETER!

Did you hear about this anonymous baseball poll that was taken? Jeter won with like 427 votes. I thought it was great that Brent Axe on WHEN SportsRadio in Syracuse, a DIE HARD Red Sox fan defended Jeter. Said it was probably more like jealousy. He said for his money the one player you'd want at bat with the game on the line is Jeter.

Maybe the Sox can trade for him. We'll take Nomar, I mean Orlando Cabrera, I mean Edgar Renteria. Are they available?

Jeter is a money player. Very interesting that the top 3 all played in New York and all make good money. We all know A-rod is over-rated. All he does year after year is hit 40+ home runs, drive in 100+ runs and hit .300+ year after year. And he does it all with out steroids! Give me a break. I think the steroid freaks should own the top 10 spots with Palmiero and Bonds one and two. Now for the importantant stuff...Yankees win, Theeeeee Yankees win. Wright: 6 innings, 3 hits, 2 runs. Buckette: 5 innings, 5 hits, 4 runs. Red Sux bullpen: 3.1 innings, 8 hits, 3 runs. Who's staff sucks?

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 05/07/06 09:18 AM

I don't like Sheffield out of the line up but at least Joe Torre has FINALLY gone to a lefty-right batting order. This IMO should have always been his approach. That arrangement is what afforded them success historically. Last night's batting order against Texas was set up that way (except for the Crosby-Damon end). Hope Torre sticks with that set up with or without Sheffie available.

Hey Blojo...Stats are only a snapshot of 15 inninings work for two men who are struggling. Must be the rest of the staff is doing pretty well because they compare something like this:

Yankees (5th in major leagues in pitching) 3.91 ERA and 21 home runs allowed

Headrocks: (14th in major leagues) 4.43 ERA allowing 36 home runs

...and just for the hell of it...

Yankees (3rd in majors in hitting) .288 ave 40 home runs

Headrocks:(8th in majors) .274 ave 33 home runs

We'll see what happens in round two. If this snapshot becomes a bigger picture the headrocks will be battling for the wild card (maybe).

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 05/10/06 01:21 PM

Your offense will/is break(ing) down! Your pitching is spotty (Moose and Chacon can't stop the bleeding forever)
George already has BC shopping Small for a starter.
Everything spins on a dime for both teams. Yours is showing its weaknesses sooner and more often!

Very satisfying win last night. Have to marvel at David Ortiz against the Yankees. Reminds me of former Yankee killers Curt Blefary and Sixto Lezcano. Every "generation" has one guy that kills them.

Looks like Rodriguez may have gotten motivated. I thought his being booed his first at bats was appropriate. Gotta send him the message.

I too agree that there are some holes in the yankees starting rotation and I think Johnson's age is catching up with him. Who is aging faster, Johnson or barely Bonds? As far as Small is concerned he should probably get some starts to see what's in his tank this year. Yankees announcers spoke about him being more "built" to be a starter than a reliever.

If Randy Johnson continues to struggle watch the Yankees get more active in the Roger Clemens sweepstakes. Houston offering last years $18 mil prorated? George will just give him a flat out $18 if the need becomes too strong.

Rubber game tonight.

GO YANKEES!!!
Posted by: mutantmaster

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 05/11/06 07:40 AM

Team stats clearly reflected in last night's win. Somebody tell Giambi, Posada and A-Rod they are breaking down. Former Yankee killer Curt Blefary played for the Yanks in 1970 and 1971. I have a Curt Blefary bat that I got on Bat day at Yankee Stadium when I was a little kid. He hit a home run in the right field upper deck that day. It looked a little like Posada's shot against Schindig last night!

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 05/12/06 06:10 AM

When Loretta hit the ball to left in the first inning and Matsui missed it I said "Oh...fudge" because Ortiz was coming up with 2 men on base. The application of my expression was obviously misapplied. Matsui is going to be real hard to replace. Real hard.

Time for some specific players to step it up. One name comes to mind. I won't say who but his nickname rymes (sp?) with a souped-up automobile. Close to the old Mets player Kanehl.
Posted by: mutantmaster

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 05/12/06 08:01 AM

Matsui really hadn't produced much in the first month and a half (.261, 5 HR, 19 RBI's). I know at some point he would have turned it on, but who knows when. Bernie will now have the opportunity to make something of his last ride in the Bronx. He and A-Rod need to turn it up a few notches. I'm not worried about the offense. Even without Matsui and Shef, they still have a better offense than most teams in the league. I am more worried about the pitching. They still need another consistent starter and a solid bullpen pitcher.

His numbers will come and he'll take another MVP from Big Sloppi. Pitching...yeh I have worries but what team doesn't. I hope the Blow Sox aren't sitting smug with the crap they throw out there. The Yanks will be fine! They'll stay with the Sox despite all of their injuries, and when they get to full strength, WATCH OUT!!! I hope the Sox are within three games when that series comes.

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 05/17/06 08:38 AM

Unfortunately I will not be watching many Yankee games in the near future. It has become evident to me that they do better when I do not watch and being a Yankee fan I will do whatever it takes to "help" my team.

I saw the Rangers score their 9 runs and turned to Idol. Flipped back during commercials to see that the Yankees had scored some runs. Went back to Idol and visited the game again during commercials. They scored more runs. Stuck with the game for a while and Texas started to score.

I think I saw 2 of the Yankees 14 runs yesterday and 11 of the Rangers' 13. Based on this I will try radio only for a while. If that doesn't work I'll try gameday on mlb.com. If THAT doesn't work than I'll hear about the outcome on the 11 o'clock news.

Congrats to Jorge. I did help the Yankees win last night because I consciously turned off the game after Mo blew the lead (which I saw happen).

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 05/17/06 09:22 AM

I used to feel that way too Ed. It can be frustrating. I do not understand why they did not allow Farnsworth to pitch another inning. He easily set them down with 9 pitches in the 8th. Why wouldn't they use him in the 9th. I know Mariano is their best, but if he goes one and the game is still tied, they have lost both of the pitchers. Joe over-manages sometimes. Good outcome though.

It's really not all that stellar but compared to the Blowsox it just looks that way. The Red hose don't have a starter with an ERA under 4.00. Now that's stellar! Yankee bats will make up for a lot of poor pitching performances. Red Sox just suck!

Chacon went into the game at 3.65. A bad night like he had does that to an ERA. It won't happen again! I've told you before Johnson sucks. How is this for a profound quote?

Schilling: (4.17) and climbing
Beckett: (4.24) and leaking
Clement (5.58) and lost

What the genius' let go:

Martinez (3.19)
Arroyo (2.03)

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 05/19/06 04:19 PM

I suspect they will be playing around the rain drops this evening. Tonight may be a watershed for Randy Johnson. If he stinks up the joint again I think they'll conveniently find some way to put him on the DL and go out and buy some one. Dontrelle Willis is soon to be a former Marlin but the pundits don't list the Yankees as a "player" for him because of their weak farm system. If George wants him though, goodbye Melky and a bunch of others.

Saturday's game looks like the keeper of the weekend. Pedro and the Moose. Nice!

Seeing as how I won't be watching the game tonight (in hopes of increasing the Yankees' chances of winning) what's worth watching on the tube?

I'm not superstitious. To quote Joe Torre, "I'm not superstitious. It's unlucky to be superstitious".

(One of my favorite tongue-in-cheek quotes of all time.)

I'll probably succumb (suck gum?) and watch. With Johnson pitching it is easy to be superstitious though. Hope your Orioles have a good weekend.

Posted by: Eddie

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 06/03/06 10:10 AM

Kind of nice win for the Yankees last night. Jeter being clutch is expected. I thought the real star of the game for the Yankees though was Leche Cabrera on that throw out of Lopez at home. Now THAT was impressive. And then later he cuts off that ball down the line before it gets to the corner holding the runner at third. Again, impressive. He may be the next Bernie, home grown talent that is. I see him being the regular left fielder the rest of the year with right field being the merry-go-round of players.

Yankees are showing resiliancy with a depleted line up. Bubba back soon, good bye Terrence Long maybe. Be curious to see if they keep him or Thompson on the big club.

Let's see if Randy Johnson can handle his recent prosperity or slips backwards.

Thought for sure A-Rod would hit one out when they were up by 11. His time to.

Kid pitching for Boston tonight has a 12+ ERA after one start. Righty so I expect to see Terrence Long in the line up and Bernie on the bench. I wonder how far down they'll move Cabrerra in the batting order? Not too far I suspect but could be as low as 7th behind Cano. 7 8 9 could be Leche, Andy and Terrence. Not too shabby.

Hope Wang can keep the ball down tonight.

I'd like to see the A's rape their (first place) team and send Barry Zito to the Yankees. Or maybe the Marlins continuing their purge and Dontrelle Willis coming over. Maybe Jarrod Washburn can be pried away from Seattle. Gotta be a lefty though.

There's a trade brewing and I don't think the price will be Cano or Melky.

Nice story to help reinforce A-Rod's "just one of the people", "just a regular guy" image. He was nice enough to give Scott Kazmir a ride from Tampa to Pittsburgh in his

PERSONAL JET!

I bet the story gets turned into one that reflects poorly on A-Rod even though he thought it was nice. One of the guys do NOT own personal jets.

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 07/15/06 08:15 AM

Nice win v the CWS and Contreras yesterday. Game winning RBI? Leche Cabrera. The same Melky who's name is being mentioned in trade talks with Pittsburgh for Craig Wilson and (get this) Jeromy Burnitz, a 37 year old underperforming DH. I hope Brian Cashman does not pull the trigger on this one. As the Yankees climb back into the race with the Sox I hope they don't pull off panic trades. The Yankees are doing well with their small ballers and Cabrera has shown nice clutch performances like last night.

Have to light a candle for this one to not happen.

• Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano has missed two weeks because of a hamstring injury and said at the All-Star Game that he "still feels a little tight.'' You could see the frustration on his face. Perhaps optimistically, Cano estimated he'd return next week.

Nice win v the CWS and Contreras yesterday. Game winning RBI? Leche Cabrera. The same Melky who's name is being mentioned in trade talks with Pittsburgh for Craig Wilson and (get this) Jeromy Burnitz, a 37 year old underperforming DH. I hope Brian Cashman does not pull the trigger on this one. As the Yankees climb back into the race with the Sox I hope they don't pull off panic trades. The Yankees are doing well with their small ballers and Cabrera has shown nice clutch performances like last night.

Have to light a candle for this one to not happen.





Looks like at this point the Yankees have said no to the trade.

Come on Cashman pull the trigger. We need a good young outfielder in Pittsburgh. Maybe the Bucs will throw in a pitcher.

I hate Littlefield (GM).....no wonder we have losers like Burnitz on our team.

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 07/26/06 09:26 AM

Good morning dormant posters. Topic for the Yankees thread today is who will they pick up before the trade deadline of July 31. My feeling is it will be an outfielder. I don't think Cashman can tread water much longer especially with the suden and current health problems with Damon. Bad backs can haunt a player with the leather and the wood. For all Bubba Crosby's speed he is not a great outfielder and despit Aaron Guiel's late performances he is not the RF answer as we wait and hope for Sheffield and Matsui to make recoveries.

I see Bobby Abreau (sp?) in pinstripes. 330' vs 314' to the right field pole will cure Abreau's home run production and the Yankees can afford his contract and then decide to keep or trade him in the offseason.

I don't think they will be able to gret the pitching gem on the block, Barry Zito, because of a lack of minor league talent pool unless they go crazy and trade Melky. I would love to see a lefty like Zito in pinstripes though. Long term he would be worth it.

Whaddaya think group? Cashman moves or stands still?

See he got his shaggy hair cut once he left CheeseSteakTown for the Big Mango. The bushy mooose-stash is still there though.

Now that is a major trade Mr. Cashman! Hope you are only warming up with the boys from down I-95.

What's all this talk about Scott Proctor and a trade. He is the only dependable arm they have for middle relief. I hope they don't do something stupid involving Scott Proctor.
Posted by: mutantmaster

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 07/28/06 07:17 AM

They can't trade Proctor! Pitching is what they need. They have been patient and Cano's return is right around the corner. That will be followed shortly after by Matsui. Sheffield is enjoying his time off too much. He'll probably take the rest of the year off.

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 07/28/06 09:42 AM

Define shortly and "right around the corner" por favor. Are we talking next week for Cano and 2 weeks for Matsui? I have been surprised at how long Cano has been out.

If Matsui is 2 weeks away then they don't have to make any major moves (Abreu) but how long before Cano and Matsui are in playing shape?

Curious to see what Cashman does in the next 3 days.
Posted by: mutantmaster

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 07/28/06 10:40 AM

Cano begins running the bases today and if it goes well... minor league assignment next week. Matsui is doing fielding and throwing drills, as well as some modified batting practice. Bone has healed fine. Once soreness goes away he can start batting practice. Should be back mid August. Cashman is always looking to improve the team and says that no one is untouchable if the deal is right. (BULLCRAP) I still think they need pitching as opposed to hitting right now. Ponson is not going to cut it. They may have to try Chacon again if he has a few more relief appearances like the other night. Not much out there. Maybe Tejada will convert to the outfield like Soriano did!

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 07/28/06 10:46 AM

Cashman, in a TV interview yesterday, said Matsui would like to be back by the middle of August. But the organization is realistically thinking the first part of September.

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 07/29/06 06:58 PM

Well, after today's Randy Johnson's "You gotta remember, I am 42 years old" performance it's clear to me that the need is for a starter. My pick? Mark Redman from KC. Not a marquis pitcher so there shouldn't be much to have to give up... AND, he is a LEFTY, something the Yankees sorely lack (Yankee Stadium WAS built for left handed pitchers you know).

Hope that Brian Cashman steers things this way. Hey it will be like the old days when the KC Athletics were the major league farm system for the Yankees.

Why I hate the Yankees part 124,895

Abreu pulled from starting lineup Sunday minutes before start of game.

Breaking news
Yankees have tentative deal for Abreu, LidleESPN.com news services


The Philadelphia Phillies and New York Yankees have a tentative deal to send Phillies right fiedler Bobby Abreu and pitcher Cory Lidle to New York ESPN.com's Jayson Stark reported Sunday.

Stark reported the Yankees will send 18-year-old minor-league shrotstop C.J. Henry -- their No. 1 pick in 2005 -- and 27-year-old left-handed reliever Matt Smith. The Phillies will also pick one other minor-leauge player from an agreed-upon list, while the Yankees will take on responsibility for Abreu and Lidle's contracts. Abreu alone is due close to $37 million over the next 2˝ years.

Abreu is hitting .277 with 8 home runs and 65 RBI in 99 games. He has a career batting average of .301 with 198 home runs and 841 RBI over 10 seasons.

Lidle, a right-hander, is 8-7 with a 4.74 ERA in 21 starts in 2006. In eight seasons he has a career mark of 78-69 with a 4.54 ERA.

Abreu was in the Phillies' starting lineup Sunday but was pulled for Shane Victorino 10 minutes before their game with the Florida Marlins.

Abreu pulled from lineup, likely traded
Right-fielder rumored to be going to Yankees
By Ken Mandel / MLB.com

PHILADELPHIA -- It appears that Bobby Abreu's final day with the Phillies has arrived.
Minutes before the start of Philadelphia's doubleheader against the Marlins, the team announced a change in the starting lineup. Abreu, who had been in the lineup batting third and playing right field, was replaced.

Abreu's next appearance in a baseball uniform will likely come with the New York Yankees. The team was believed to have offered a package of prospects headed by former first-round draft pick C.J. Henry for Abreu and possibly Cory Lidle or Jon Lieber.

The teams had been talking extensively through the weekend. No official statement has been made.

Re: why I hate the Yankees - 07/31/06 05:12 PM

New first baseman. Hmmm. Didn't know Andy Phillips was on thin ice. Guess when you're a newbie everyday is a test. Expect him to go to Columbus if Wilson has a good game tomorrow.

Wilson's gotta think he hit the lottery, going from the Bucs to the Bombers.

Hernandez a Met not a Yankee roadie. Too bad (maybe) they didn't pull the Milledge for Zito trigger but I see on mlb where Milledge will probably be called up and given right field. Hey why not. It appears the Metsies have committed to Milledge so bring him up. May be a good move for the Mets ala Jeter being given SS in 96 over Fernandez. I smell Willie Randolph in this mix.
Posted by: roadguy

Re: why I hate the Yankees - 07/31/06 07:28 PM

Yep Hernadez goes to the other NY team. He was going to the Yankees along with Wilson about a week ago. Who knows what happened. So glad we got Chacon....yep......the Bucs might as well have just taken a truck load of beer for Wilson...geez.

The Pirates have the WORST GM in sports. I knew he was bad but this goes beyond words. I'm not talking just about Wilson.

I can't believe the Yankees didn't ask for more from the Bucs.....you could have had Perez for a minor league batboy and a Nathan's hotdog cart.

Re: why I hate the Yankees - 08/11/06 09:45 AM

A big thanks to Mr Rodriguez yet again. Throws a potential double play ball into right field and then strands a runner at third (with less than two outs) twice. Something I expect from my all star clean up hitter. I would rather see him moved down in the lineup and have someone who makes contact slid in there. Very frustrating.

I have to admit that I cant explain how the Yankees are in front by 10 games. No Shef, no Matsui and then Cano out for awhile there, then to top it off, the A-Rod saga. Good trades, rookies stepping up, Bernie being Bernie--must better than Manny being Manny--, and surprising pitching. This meltdown by the Sox rivals the one in 1978. I honestly believe that Torre deserves manager of the year. The one thing that really concerns me is if the Yankees have to play the Angels in the playoffs. There is just something about them that worries me. Anyway, just thought I would put some thoughts here.

Re: New York Yankees 2006 - 09/13/06 07:29 AM

Matsui back with a bang, Sheffield may play this weekend against the Red Sox, outfield now is real crowded. Not a bad problem for Joe Torre to have.

Yankees magic number is 9. They could clinch the AL East this weekend against the Red Sox. That would be sweet.

Speaking of those Red Sox I think their season is over. Too bad. Classic October baseball includes the Yanks and Sox not just one. Going to miss them. (Seriously, I'm going to miss them. I'm not kidding.)

FINALLY there it is. Leading basebal in batTing average. But he won't get MVP because David Ortiz has purportedly stated that to be the MVP you have to hit home runs and drive in runs. Oh yeah, David? How about playing the field every day? That does not matter. Just ask Phil Rizutto what it takes to be the MVP.

I cannot wait to hear the serenade of "MVP,MVP" when Jeter comes to bat and maybe a "NOT...THE...MVP" when Ortiz come up today. Today and tomorrow should be wild in the Bronx.

I've hoped the Red SOx would make a serious run at the wild card but now that they have folded up their tents I want to see this weekend end with the Sox behind by 15 1/2 games in the standings and all REPEATING Pedro's line "I GUESS THEY'RE MY DADDY".

If you can't root for your team, you gotta root against the Yanks. Wedgie knows that because he makes a habit of it. Nice T-shirt I saw at Yankee Stadium last week. "Hey Idiots, there was no curse...you just sucked for 86 years". How fitting for yet another year.

New York, N.Y. (AP) - A seven-year-old-boy was at the center of a Bronx
courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who
should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by
his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in
keeping with child custody law and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the degree possible.

The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him
more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When
the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy
cried out that they also beat him.

After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning
that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the
judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who
should have custody of him.

After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child
welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the New York Yankees, whom the boy firmly believes is not capable of beating anyone.

Report: Yanks expected to fire Torre if he doesn't quit
Posted: Sunday October 8, 2006 10:02AM; Updated: Sunday October 8, 2006 10:02AM

NEW YORK (AP) -- Yankees manager Joe Torre likely will be fired and replaced by Lou Piniella following another early exit from the playoffs, the New York Daily News reported Sunday.

According to sources the Daily News did not identify, Torre is expected to be fired unless he resigns first -- or team officials can talk owner George Steinbrenner out of making the move.

On Saturday, the Yankees were eliminated from the first round of the AL playoffs, losing to Detroit 8-3 in Game 4. It was the second straight year New York lost in the opening round.

The Yankees have won the World Series four times under Torre, most recently in 2000. They had a record $200 million payroll this year and matched the New York Mets for the best record in the regular season.

The Yankees have made the playoffs in all 11 years that Torre has been their manager. They have won nine straight AL East titles.

The 66-year-old Torre has one year and $7 million left on his contract.

Piniella is a former Yankees star and managed them in 1986-87 and for most of 1988. He guided Cincinnati to the 1990 World Series title and later managed Seattle and Tampa Bay.

The 63-year-old Piniella took a year off from managing last season.

Yankee Radio Broadcaster Susan Waldman, following last nights' defeat of the Yanks:

"...this was a greater loss to this franchise than the 4 in a row the Sox took in '04...."

LOL!

The Yankees lost and they will make their changes. Torre, Arod, Sheffield, and some others may, or may not be there next year. The pitching staff will need some work. Johnson sucks and Mussina is getting old. They will win their division once again, leaving the Red Sucks and the rest of the Yankee wannabees far behind. George will give them that. Can't say that for any of the other sorry ass owners who would rather put the money in their pockets. The Yankees will rise again and I will be there rooting for them! GO TIGERS!!!!!
PS: The Red Sox are in for a long playoff drought so get used to it!

And he takes full credit for that. No excuses! He'll be back to put the Blosox in their place again next year. I hope Big Papi rests his back this offseason. He's going to need it to carry them sad sox again next year. On to FOOTBALL!

This is not the way one should remember the ending of a season.

So any one that has a hang up about how any one played this year, get a reality check. It's just a game. Life and your family are more important.
