  • Welcome to 2009, and some things have changed, some have not. The Yanks' thought they got a winning team by going to their all-star team format that they used a few years, only to backfire and get eliminated in the first round. I wonder...will history repeat itself? I say yes, because I don't want to see another Yankees AL East champions for a couple years. Seeing that from 1998-2006 was pretty much an eyesore to me.

    Now, who's ready for some baseball?

      SDL, here's yours:



      Now then, enjoy 3rd place, fellas. The June Swoon begins in mid-April.
      Some of us others don't warrant one? :hissyfit::ooo:

      How did third place feel like again?

      Yankees got two "best" pitchers but one of them is a chronic injury sufferer and the other is a cheeseburger away from being too big to pitch

      I won't bother rubbing in "A-Fraud" nonsense...even Yankees fans seem to have given up on supporting him any way but on the field

      And I'm calling it now: it's the beginning of the end for Jeter with the Yankees and in baseball! He is going to have a down year AGAIN. He will have maybe 160-170 hits but will hit .285-.290 batting average but the ball will be rolling AGAINST him.

      Have a nice year, third placers

      • What's the date when Joey Pitbull:

        1. Has a meltdown?

        2. Gets the pink slip from Hanky-Poo?

        I got July 4 for both!

              Anyone care to wager how long before the New York media rips him apart? I give him another bad start

              Funny that the Yankees were whining about a fan interference home run when they were given a run due to fan interference earlier in the game...what hypocrites.

                I'm waiting for the closed-door meeting in Joey Pitbull's office...but it won't be Pitbull doing the ripping. You can bet that The Boss and Hanky-Poo will be doing the big-league butt-chewing.

                    The skunk was up in the owner's box...that was the pitbull in the dugout.

                        all the Yankee fans are out collecting cans in hopes they will get enough money for tickets. By the looks of it, no one can afford to go to the game...the price is too high and i heard it is a little windy in the stadium.

                        Maybe they should have built a museum at the ball park, instead of putting a baseball field in a museum.

                          They gave up on the team already and started the countdown until football season

                              Oh yeah, here's yours, even though ill-timed:



                              I think that the Yanks are eternally stuck in having the biggest names on the FA market. Looking back, if I had my choice, I'd have traded for Johan Santana rather than getting CC Sabathia. The size and weight bother me. Kind of like what people said about Boomer, even though he pitched about 5 years longer than anyone else would've wildly imagined. I'd have preferred they'd explored the Japanese market for a starter, since they will make much less per season.

                              As to Alex Rodriguez, that's his name. I'm not interested in the "A-Fraud" cheesiness, but I can't wait until he returns. Hopefully, it will be drama-free. He would add to Teixeira as being our big bopper. We have good hitters, but I don't think you can survive with only one true threat in the lineup.

                              I have no idea what you have against Jeter. Have you seen his stats, or was this a pre-determined conclusion? He's batting .301, has a .884 OPS, 4 dingers, 11 hickory-smoked ribeyes, 22 hits. How is that a letdown? I think that he will be fine.

                              As for Saturday's game ... well, there's always tomorrow. We should've won, but Burnett couldn't put together a solid 4th & 5th inning. The rest mushroomed from there.

                                Wow, someone from the New York area making sense...who are you and what have you done with Mattingley!


                                I have no idea what you have against Jeter. Have you seen his stats, or was this a pre-determined conclusion? He's batting .301, has a .884 OPS, 4 dingers, 11 hickory-smoked ribeyes, 22 hits. How is that a letdown? I think that he will be fine.
                                Ignoring that he's been dropping in stats the last two years and on the back side of his career(HOF in either 2018/2019/2020). He's on the decline, but from some decent hights a steady decline doesn't look all that bad but it's decline.

                                And I have never found him to be as good as he is made out to be even before the rivalry exploded in 1999, I had a dislike for him dating back to 1997 and 1998 when it was him, Nomar, and A-Rod as the big three in the AL for shortstops. I just don't get the love affair with him.

                                As for Saturday's game ... well, there's always tomorrow. We should've won, but Burnett couldn't put together a solid 4th & 5th inning. The rest mushroomed from there.
                                At least it wasn't at home, you guys have had enough bashing about that place as is!
