$61 Mil owed the 40 yr old "clubhouse boy" can bring one down a touch or two! Ha.

Well look who is back. That bitter taste of a wire to wire last place finish finally leaving that big mouth. Such a nice quiet year last year it was without all the Beantown Bozos running about. 61m? Pocket change!

Never left. Yanks finished strong, eh? What was it that closed 2014 in da "Zoo"?
Any bold insight to share? Cashman finally grasping reality about the "dog"? Grab ur Little "floppy" and cuddle up with the Jeter loop of Yankme classics. Reality approaches! Beware!

Ha, you may have been reading but you sure weren't writing. The last I heard from you was your insightful comment about the season only being two weeks old when the Blowsox were already in the basement sucking wind. Yanks had a pretty decent 2014 despite having only 20% of their starting pitching for the majority of the season. Got nothing out of McCann, Beltran, or Tex. Despite that they far outdistanced the reigning champs and remained in the chase into September! If they get any production out of those three this year it will be a much different season. Jon Molester chose to be a perrenial loser with the Cubbies over the Blowsox. That tells you what he thinks about them. I heard they built a new wheelchair ramp to get Big Floppy to the dugout. What a team!

Thought all your troubles would vanish with Ellsbury and Steven Ka-noblok Drew added to the line up, huh? Most of my misguided family members that are die-hard pinstripers acknowledge Tex is inconsistently unreliable and spends most of his crumbling career on the DL. Beltran in the same boat. McCann might be better suited at 1st (if he could be taught to field the position).

Sox didn't show Lester the respect he earned before free agency and it cost them. I am glad for him and wish him the best. Helping win 3 world championships will always be appreciated.

For the record, sucking wind in the beginning, middle and/or end of the season still counts as butkus if ur not in the post season.

We'll let the Spankees buy up all the old, overpriced, broken-down talent. "Anybody interested in a broken down 1st baseman that misses most of year on IR and another who"s told he cant play the position but maybe DH for 3yr at $61mil." Ha. Keep"em coming, Flopper. I can hit these softballs all day long

Ha Ha! Pretty optimistic for a team that finished 6 games out of 4th and 25 games out of first less than a half a year ago! Sixth worst team in all of baseball and now they're champions again! Their free agent spending going to carry that pitching staff that's not even as good as last year's? They better spend a little more money and get Mad Max to make sure! And from what I've heard you couldn't hit a basketball off a tee!

How can I NOT be optimistic? Kept most of our talented rookie/2nd yr personnel. Freed up cash for all-star talent at 3rd and LF. Kept our prized minor league talent in-house. Unloaded a light hitting Q-mark at SS to Yanks in '14. (who they so eloquently resign for '15) Haaaaaaa! Optimistic also that my veterans will hold up longer than yours. Oh….what ever you choose to hit from a tee, from what Ive heard, you always prefer the ladies tee.

Buck's a great manager but he's got his work cut out trying deal w/ his rotation to start the season. Lot of question marks.

Same 6 guys as last year. And Gausman still has an option. I'd rather have an extra guy in case of an injury.

Vegas predicts that the Red Sox will win the AL East

BTW... I notice that Big Floppy has been booted.

Oh, Darn it! His cheerful demeanor and charming wit will be surely missed! Perhaps he will resurrect himself again under another quaint alias so befitting his mammoth brain. Lets all keep a good thought, eh?

There's a chance that Big Floppy is poster who has been continuously bounced off the forms, only to re-appear under a new account name. You'll probably recognize him.

Check your PMs.
