Pete, stop being so damn prolific. I am at work and have things to do! You posting all this great stuff throughout the day is seriously impacting my productivity. Seriously, dude, this volume of great material is going to cost me my job, and then I’ll have to make a living following you around and carrying your luggage
On the other hand, I can always find a new job in October. Keep it up!
The entire team would be benefitted by being more like JD.
The guy has the perfect attitude for playing in NY.
JMO, but the departure of Johnson and Sheffield will make the locker room a bit more laid back this season.
Who can forget Johnny trying to get the guys going in September only to be given an “I can kill you” look by Johnson, prompting Damon to think he had done something wrong.
After this two day ARod-Jeter soap opera and the “will Bernie show up” show, I think you will see a lot more laid back Yankees team this year.
I say this because, reading the tea leaves, this is the last hurrah for this team.
Joe and ARod will probably not be back after this season. Who knows what happens with Posada and Mo. Pavano? Well, you have to be here in the first place in order to have a “last hurrah”.
Seriously though, I think this team knows this is it. With the way Cashman is remaking the pitching roster, and his commitment to lowering payroll and getting younger next year, knowing this is the last hurrah, will make guys play more relaxed. Hopefully, that translates to a good season and a much better post-season result.
Johnny is definitely a HUGE addition to the team and clubhouse, that did show tremendously last year with a more laid back team, despite the grumpy old men… Now that they’re gone, should see an even more relaxed and hopefully cohesive team, and a lot of WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW’s, including 11 very big ones in October.
Cail, I never thought I’d say it, but he’s becoming one of my favorites as well. I was against the signing because I thought he was over-rated and because he was part of the 2004 Red Sox (that Grand Salami in Game 7 broke my heart). But he is definitely winning me over.
