“and yes they are 20 – 8 – but would you be so comfortable if they start losing the next 15 out of 17 – because the DH they signed (yes the one that has been on the DL for 50% of his career) is out and the guy they signed to be a bench warmer is now the starter and is sucking it up?”
So you’re genuinely concerned with a team with CC Sabathia, AJ Burnett, Andy Pettitte, and Phil Hughes going 4 of every 5 games, Mariano Rivera in the bullpen, and Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriquez, Mark Teixeira, Robinson Cano, Jorge Posada in the line up, doing something I can’t imagine any Yankees team has done since perhaps (if even) the early 70s. ?
That’s your argument?
I have one request. Please stay away from my 401k account.
Simultaneously, Phil Hughes provided more evidence of his arrival as a man among men. Hughes has now thrown 224.2 Major-League innings, enough that we can pretend that he’s just completed his rookie year, even though it took him parts of three seasons and 77 games to compile the totals, which show 192 hits, 96 earned runs, 20 homers, 85 walks, 208 strikeouts and an ERA of 3.85. Hughes is not yet 24 years old (he gets there on June 24). If he was only as good as what his career stats show as of this moment, you’d do cartwheels, be you a Yankees fan, coach, or general manager. The wonderful thing is, so far this season he’s been better than that. By showing patience, by giving Hughes the chance to work his way to maturity, the Yankees have earned themselves another star pitcher. Let us hope that he is the first of many — the same Josh Beckett the Yankees toasted tonight will be a free agent after the season, and who has the stomach for that flirtation, even if flirtation is all that it is?
That hits to innings pitched ratio is outstanding and it speaks to the quality of his stuff…and that’s taking into account August 2007 and April 2008.
Betsy, I’m sorry if it seems I’m taking my annoyance out on you. There were some things said in the game post last night that ticked me off and I guess I’m still upset about it. That’s my problem, not yours.
Live up here in Boston and the weather is downright nasty outside. We’ve been hearing thunder all morning and its pouring rain. Hopefully the heavy rain causes the rest of the afternoon to be relatively clear.
it is exciting. you can start shopping for books and manage your account, i.e., name your kindle, even before you kindle arrives. any books you order will be waiting to download, so they’ll show up as soon as you unbox and plug it in.
I am very excited. I have been refusing to buy books. I am so tired of carrying them around and trying to find space for them. Most of the authors I like come out with books in the summer so I am really excited about downloading them on my new Kindle
“I don’t think letting Damon go was a mark against Cashman. On the other hand, signing Nick Johnson is. I’m not sure why some fans on here think that other fans can’t have a problem with the moves that Cash made. I’m not committing some crime by saying that Cash shouldn’t have signed NJ. That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it.”
Here’s what I don’t get Laura – the seeming satisfaction some of you folks get over stuff like this. You may not intend it, I’m simply expressing to you a perception, but it really, REALLY seems like some of you critics are to a degree content to perhaps (we don’t know yet) be right.
It strikes me as you’re satisfied Nick Johnson might be hurt, in order to vindicate your opinion.
I get that you don’t have to think Cashman is infallible in order to be a fan, but conversely, I would think a fan with legitimate criticism of a GM’s move would WANT to be dead wrong.
I can’t say as I get that impression from some of you.
favorite authors are a great starting point. one of the surprises of moving to the kindle was how it opened up new genres and new authors in my old standbys (mystery/adventure) and dramatically expanded the plausible universe of materials. the low friction (cost, ease of use, reviews, faster reading) associated with trying new (for me) stuff really opened up the reading experience. many others have reported similar experiences.
if the Yankees go .500 the rest of the year, they’ll win 87 games.
3 AL teams won’t 87 games last season.
The Yankees have a run differential of +62.
3 AL teams had a run differential above 60 for the entire 2009 season (the same 3 teams as above).
Yes, it’s only 28 games into the season, but for the Yankees not to be a virtual lock for the postseason, something will have to go catastrophically wrong with them, or something will have to go very, VERY right for the Tigers, Sox or Jays.
I just want to tell you that I’m very new to blogging and honestly enjoyed this blog. More than likely I’m planning to bookmark your blog post . You certainly come with tremendous stories. Thank you for sharing with us your web page.
You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this during my search for something regarding this.
It is perfect time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you some interesting things or tips. Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article. I desire to read even more things about it!

This is the perfect website for anyone who wants to find out about this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a new spin on a topic which has been discussed for many years. Excellent stuff, just great!
Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.

I’m really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays..
If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
It’s perfect time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you some interesting things or advice. Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article. I wish to read even more things about it!
