What is Cashman waiting for to pick up another bat??? The russo’s, pena’s, thame’s are not cutting it. They need a DH.Who knows how healthy A-rod will be the rest of the year and Posada looks lost at the plate. Wake up cashman and get a bat in here!
I did a summer study abroad/training program. Basically learned how to develop non profit organizations and had to get our own project off the ground working in groups of 4-5 with students from the US and all over Africa.
Being able to see the country and travel a bit after the program was over while earning credit didn’t hurt either
1. Nice win last night. As Chad points out, bench – Cisco, Russo – played big parts in that win. Now just 1 game back, with Tampa coming down to earth. I can sense that order is about to be restored, and the universe will be at peace
2. Story in the NY Times this morning. Bud has relieved Jimmie Lee Solomon, exec. VP of MLB, from his duties in supervising the umpires. Frank Robinson will now oversee them, as well as on-field operations and security. It’s about time a change was made. Ever since Solomon took over for Sandy Alderson, the umpiring has gone downhill. Frank Robinson has a tremendous reputation as a baseball man, so I’m optimistic that things will improve, maybe not this season, but going forward.
Good morning everyone. I am looking for another Yankees win even with another compromised lineup. We have had lots of those this year. It was nice last week when the full starting lineup played last week.
I wonder why so many of you think the Yankees aren’t doing a good job offensively. Here are some relevant MLB team stats and where they stand against all the other teams:
Batting Average: 1 (tied with Cinn)
Runs Scored: 2 (Sox are #1 by 3 runs but have played 2 more games so Yankees lead in runs/game)
RBI: 2 (again, Sox are #1 but have the extra games)
BA with RISP: 10
RBI with RISP: 1 (they have 25 more than the #2)
RBI with RISP and 2 Outs: 2 (Atlanta has 3 more, big whoop)
These may not be good in your video games or fantasy leagues but in the real world, where it counts, these are about as good as it gets.
Boy reading the http://www.denverpost.com they admit the Rockies got away with a win. The game should never have been played, the fielders couldn’t see the ball. The post says it was raining harder when the game started than during the rain delay. They refer to the game as a rinse cycle. Ubaldo said, the team won for him, he was having grip problems, due to the rain.
I say thank you Rockies, you beat the Yankees division rival and they gained a game on the Rays!!
The Yanks need to trade A-Rod, Teixiera, Granderson, and Posada after this season and replace them with M.L.B.-ready rookies at 1B, 3B, SS, and LF to go with Cano, Cervelli, Gardner, Swisher, and a re-signed for two years only Jeter at DH.
The Yanks should offer Jeter two years at his 2010 salary per year because what’s Jeter gonna do, collect his 3000th hit elsewhere since he’s not reaching that mark this year?
The Yanks have all the leverage. If he leaves, he looks greedy esp.after he got a decade-long contract.
The way I see it, two of the rookies would do well enough to stay as everyday players, one would need more work and possibly be a platoon player until he could play every day or just be a platoon player, and one probably wouldn’t make it. It’s a zero risk move because the Yanks could always sign players for 2012.
Bottom line is the Yanks won the World Series with A-Rod, Teixiera, and Posada, and without Granderson.
I would rather see 2011 be a year the Yanks don’t make the postseason and rebuild than see A-Rod and Teixiera stinking it up to being medicore in their late thirties, another year of Posada behind the plate, and Granderson being a shadow of his days with Detroit, eso. if the Yanks win it all this year.
Yanks repeat as champs = More than enough credit with the fans to rebuild in 2011.
