    A slow start is a slow start. That makes two series against division leaders in which we won't get swept.

    Oh, and y'all can still make some noise when ya lose that you do wihen ya win!

    Girardi? I can't stand people who "audition" for a job, but with the media. Was this on the YES TV broadcast?
    No idea if he said it. You may remember he was campaiging for Dusty Baker's job while he was still the Marlins manager. I figured he'd be campaigning for Torre's job this time around.

      I'd say that the Guidry and Kerrigan thing (popular career Yankee = pitch coach vs more experienced pitch coach = bullpen coach) would be similar to Don Mattingly vs Joe Girardi.

      The Yanks keep people on YES who've done good for them. With Al Leiter, despite complaining when he was a Met pitcher that his team never got sufficient coverage, he'd tried his best. He wasn't overly successful, he didn't get past 5 innings (on 100 pitches or so), but he'd preceded Randy Johnson out of the pen in an admittedly losing effort in Game 5 of the '05 ALDS (Moose started the game).

      Anyway, the next spring, Leiter stayed around and retired at the beginning of the season. He then became a YES broadcaster, just as David Cone after he'd asked George for a job. Coney even went into Bleacher Creature haven (the notorious Section 39) to met with the more boisterous and loud Yankee faithful.

      Girardi taught Posada, so he's not totally going away. Tony Pena now does that, but whether he becomes the manager is debatable. Will Torre be kept along? If so, for how long? If Girardi, will it be a 1-year deal?

      I'd have to see how things go in that department.

      Either case, y'all can make some noise, even though the Mighty Yankees have turned the table. No soup for you!

      Enough chatter. I'm gonna knock your block off!

      Hiya, SDL!

        Last I checked Bucky Dent wasn't playing for NY any more?

        You know things are bad in NY when they get excited over avoiding a sweep. lol
        Dustin Pedroia was asked what the Red Sox need to do to turn it around. They have lost six straight and 14 of 21.
        “I don’t know. I’m not a magic person. I just play second base,” he said.

          I heard the Yankees were watching this movie, over and over and over again.

                      But how would we know? They didn't have cameras back then.

                        If Yankee fans are that desperate, Bucky is over here in Cincinnati. If the Yankees give us Joe Girardi, we'll give them Bucky.
                        Unlike most other team sports, in which teams usually have an equivalent number of players on the field at any given time, in baseball the hitting team is at a numerical disadvantage, with a maximum of 5 players and 2 base coaches on the field at any time, compared to the fielding team's 9 players. For this reason, leaving the dugout to join a fight is generally considered acceptable in that it results in numerical equivalence on the field, and a fairer fight.

                          Sorry about last night. You know Manny can't read that well and he had trouble with the sign posted behind the mound. The others however can read but they just ignored it.
