Thread: Yankee Stadium [II]

  1. #2101
    Were you guys alive during the 80s when all those Yankee fans got so disgusted with Steinbrenner they became Met fans? If the Yankees don't win a world series to justify these prices it could happen again.

    The Mets should be in the playoffs every year and the Dodgers too because they're in big markets. Yet they're not. But the Red Sox are. So I have respect for what they've accomplished. Incidentally, Mike Francesa says the exact same thing about the CC/Santana comparision, gonna call him a Met or Red Sox fan? And unlike me who hates the new stadium, he has no axe to grind because he likes it.

    Face it fellas, major league baseball is becoming a joke. If football and basketball operated the way major league baseball does the Spurs and the Packers would never be in competition. I'm surprised baseball fans in Pittsburgh and Kansas City put up with this. Then again nobody attends games in their ballparks so I guess they're not.
    Your Boston Red Sox are suddenly a small market team? You're losing all credibility with each post. Memo to jerryremyfan/garycohenfan, I mean scooterfan: The Sox have had either the 2nd or 3rd highest payroll (this year the Mets are #2) and had the largest payroll of ANY World Series winner, AND the largest disparity in payroll (against the Cards THEN the lowly Rockies) in Major League history. Talk about HUGE, unfair advantages!

    You do not let a young pitcher who's NEVER thrown close to 200 innings in his life without building up his arm.
    This is what happens with young pitching prospects. Before they're ML ready they're building up their innings in the minors.

    By 2011 when Joba is 25 (still very young) you will have a number 1 type of starter that is ready to throw 200+ innings.
    Exactly. Increasing a young pitcher's inning count by more than 30 innings a season has been proven to have detrimental effects on the arm.

    I can't stand when people call this "babying" a pitcher, and say that it's not how it was done in the old days. That's because they didn't recognize these things back then. And because of that, there were a ton of blown out young arms that are now staying healthy thanks to this supposed "babying."

    Not just a candidate, elected. I suspect yours and mine are pretty similar.

    Money doesn't mean shi*t in baseball. Sure if you have some more money you can sign the big names. But you have the farm system that kills free agency. The Rays proved if you have a fully loaded farm system and develop your players properly you can go to the World series. The Marlins even proved you can have the lowest payroll and beat the highest payroll in the World Series. Also the Pirates have terrible ownership that would rather pocket luxury tax money then keep some of its own players.

    atdy, unlike you, a good Mets fan and good poster, scooter is just looking to rile up Yanks fans. He can play all he wants but he should know that he's unusually transparent.

    I was lumping the Yankees, Red Sox, Dodgers and Mets together. These 4 teams SHOULD win because they have the greatest resources. Oakland has been very competitive since 2000 with no money. Imagine if they had the deep pockets of these 4 teams?


    As for financial disparity, how bout the 1998 San Diego Padres and the 2003 Marlins?

    Don't they ever come up with anything original? Same old tired bashing of Yankee fans.

    That the Yankees have fans all over the world is a testament to their greatness. But don't some of these trolls know that the majority of Yankees fans had fathers and grandfathers that rooted for the Yanks, and that our children will probably do likewise? Of course they know that. What they pretend didn't exist is the crowds of 6,000 at Shea (hmmm..were they at Yankee Stadium?), when you could choose just about any seat you wanted and the scattered, quiet crowds at Fenway when the Sox were an afterthought, even to Yankee fans.

    If you guys are talking about the net over Monument park that is there only for batting practice so fans who are walking around MP before a game don't get beaned with a ball. at the game that I went to on Friday, the grounds crew took down the net after batting practice.

    No, I'm talking about the behind-the-plate net. If it's there, it certainly blends in in that 4/10 picture.
