    If Joba has to keep running (which I absolutly condone) to his ill father on his death bed I think this will hurt the Yanks chances especially in crucial games in September and October
    A couple of blown 8th innings could mean the difference especially with the Bosox
    If Mariano and Wettland weren't on top of those games in 96 the Yanks would of been watching the World Series with their wives
    I think Joba and Mariano is the same as Mariano and Wettland
    This is my opinion but Farnsworth or the other new relief pitcher is no contest to Joba in the 8th
    Farnsworth to me is a wing and a prayer

    My omly point was I never remembered a ill parent possibly preventing a championship
    I been watching the Yanks since the Mantle and Berra days
    Joba is a key to winning this thing and if his father's illness lingers the Yanks chances will fall
    I had a friend who was on his death bed 5 times in 3 months and finally recovere4d from his illness
    I'm not saying anything against Joba being with his father at all
    I'm just talking about the situation
    I wish Joba and his father the best
    I would never put a game over a man's health in a million years but the situation of winning this or not is still there
    You people missed my point completely
    If anything happened to Joba's father I would feel just as badly as anyone here
    I'm not great with wording and if people took it the wrong way I'm sorry
    I understand your point. And I honestly believe that you don't mean it the way that many think you do.

    But I really think that only one player can't make that difference. IF the Yankees are going to win it all, it is not only because of Joba.

    Every single member of that Yankees organization is human. They are not just names in a newspaper, stats in a book. The truth is, the Yankees by allowing Joba to take time off are showing it is not a cold world, and their actual priorities are in line. That is the honest, warm real truth. It's called compassion, putting aside cold business for the realization that a man's priorities are toward his family. One player taking time off is not going to make that much of a difference, just as one player getting injured at this point of the season won't hurt their pennant chances.

    Despite all the grandiosity and posturing we see from Steinbrenner, Yankee fans, etc., the real world will always take precedent. proof positive and kudos to the team for following that and not some myth people have sadly bought too much into to the point where nothing else seems to matter.
    Well said.

    This thread is going nowhere and is getting ugly (if it is not already). Can we close this one?

    Again I'm not saying he shouldn't be there but it's a problem for the team
    I think everyone is afraid to talk up about the facts of this
    Maybe it sounds cold but the truth hurts
    You won't leave work to be a dying family member's side?

    Hank Parks,
    You are a despicable human being. Your priorites and values are reprehensible. You disgust me and every person on this forum that places any stock in the worth of human life.
    May the Lord have mercy on you in your time of need.
    Easy.

    Stop contradicting yourself. Are you kidding me?
    The Yankees ARE ok with Joba being at his father's side. Are you kidding me? I don't even know what else to say to you- Are You Kidding Me?!

    Don't worry. The Yankees aren't going to blow anything. Right now they are sitting in the catbirds seat.

    Why didn't you just say that in the first place? Instead of essentially suggesting that Joba was doing something offending to Yankees fans lol

    Please guys
    I'm not a cold hearted Monster
    I'm just saying there's a chance the Yankees could lose the pennant because of this illness
    I never said Joba shouldn't go see him
    I never remembered a team maybe losing a championship because of a parent's illness
    Joba is the key to a possible pennant
    The Yankees will have trouble with the Bosox with Joba at full strength never mind this illness causing him to leave the team for a week and maybe again when he's needed most
    Like I said this thing could linger for a long time
    It's to bad
    What could I say
    I know this is just a game but it's still very important to millions of Yankee fans who want to see a championship
    I know this man's health is much more important than a game but people invest a lot of time and money wanting this team to win and all I said it's ashame this is happening
    Shame on me for talking facts
