    This place is a lot more tolerable….even enjoyable….. when good posters talk baseball without having to resort to name calling or put downs. When people treat others with respect, we get the good posters back. But, if your personal needs are such that you can not make baseball points without name calling or put-downs….. at least try not to monopolize the blog with personal vendettas caused by mutual name calling and putdowns. Just my two cents.

    Andruw Jones the Rain Maker…

    Dude can blast bombs!

  3. DadinIowa August 20th, 2011 at 3:58 pm

    As much as I would prefer to see Jesus over Andrew, there’s no denying that Andrew has been mashing

  4. tomingeorgia August 20th, 2011 at 3:58 pm

    Erin and blake,
    Not Jones again!

  5. DadinIowa August 20th, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    I REALLY hope that when Jesus does arrive, that he makes Andrew’s power look like Cervelli’s

  6. tomingeorgia August 20th, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    Andruw,
    Your mama’s watching.

  7. DadinIowa August 20th, 2011 at 4:00 pm

    ok….took me a minute Tom…… OH NO…. NOT Jones!!!!

  8. DadinIowa August 20th, 2011 at 4:01 pm

    Andrew couldn’t hit his way out of a paper bag :)

  9. DadinIowa August 20th, 2011 at 4:01 pm

    Arod tomorrow?

  10. BJK August 20th, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    I wonder if Jones was grinning when he saw his name in the line-up?

  11. Jacob Ruppert August 20th, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    Play nice DadinIowa. His name is Andruw.

  12. mick August 20th, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    DAD
    monopolizing the board, i likee

    Swisher might be heating up again. His homers come in bunches.

    Play nice mick. DAD is mono-policing the board.

  16. mick August 20th, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    most ppl here can take a joke, 99%
    some take everything the wrong way, less than 1%
    most don’t cater to the less than 1%
    you will find this out when the catered to turn on you, DAD

    Yankees – and many others – have been scouting Rich Harden

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/

    would be a nice addition, but the article fails to mention whether or not Harden actually cleared waivers. I can’t imagine he did….. in which case the Yanks would have no shot at him.

    ————————————————————————————–
    If he made it that far I think the RS would pick him up because they need pitching and to keep the Yankees from getting him.

    Tex’s left-handed swing might require a herculean off-season effort to fix.

  39. jackamir August 20th, 2011 at 4:46 pm

    I’m a little surprised Jeter is in the lineup. I thought him & Minka would be attending the Kardashian- Hughes wedding…

  40. mick August 20th, 2011 at 4:47 pm

    if one person is going to overreact, others will not cater to that person, esp here.

  45. West Coast Yankee Fan August 20th, 2011 at 4:52 pm

    Consider the source is right. Tar is as low on the evolutionary scale as they come. Even lower than Curt Schilling and Pedroia. Honest!

  46. tomingeorgia August 20th, 2011 at 4:52 pm

    mick,
    I truly have no idea. Ad hominem attacks aren’t welcome in any civilized discourse. It indicates a paucity of reason, facts and logic on the part of the poster, so, lacking any other recourse, attack a person.

  47. Vineyard Yankee August 20th, 2011 at 4:55 pm

    It’s not OK to have fun now according to some. Oh well.

  48. mick August 20th, 2011 at 4:56 pm

    tom
    if anything i am too reasonable
    it is she who attacks
    as a preemptive strike bc of paranoid tendencies
    i, like many, call out those who opine and contradict

    Doubtful, ‘El Capitan’ would stoop that low.

  50. tomingeorgia August 20th, 2011 at 4:58 pm

    mick,
    Then call out the inconsistencies and leave the person alone.

  51. West Coast Yankee Fan August 20th, 2011 at 4:59 pm

    tomingeorgia – how about you resign your post as self appointed blog scold and stop telling others how to act?

  52. mick August 20th, 2011 at 5:00 pm

    One of the most widely misused terms on the Net is “ad hominem”. It is most often introduced into a discussion by certain delicate types, delicate of personality and mind, whenever their opponents resort to a bit of sarcasm. As soon as the suspicion of an insult appears, they summon the angels of ad hominem to smite down their foes, before ascending to argument heaven in a blaze of sanctimonious glory. They may not have much up top, but by God, they don’t need it when they’ve got ad hominem on their side. It’s the secret weapon that delivers them from any argument unscathed.
    ==================
    maybe this makes it clearer whats happening except it is she who attacks in defense

  53. DadinIowa August 20th, 2011 at 5:01 pm

    Tom, sometimes you just have to ignore those who won’t play nice

  54. Vineyard Yankee August 20th, 2011 at 5:01 pm

    Sometimes negativity warrants criticism.

  55. mick August 20th, 2011 at 5:02 pm

    Then call out the inconsistencies and leave the person alone.
    =====================================
    tom
    don’t fall for her “victim” routine
    when she turns on you , you will feel differently
    as many have

    WCYF,
    I posted the link about Andruw’s mama today. Haven’t learned anything from you or your pals.

  57. DadinIowa August 20th, 2011 at 5:02 pm

    Unfortunately, Chad said there this blog’s software doesn’t allow for an ignore button. I am afraid when those who won’t play nice monopolize the blog, that the blog slides further and further down in enjoyment for good posters. :(

  58. mick August 20th, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    And your point is? Should we applaud the brilliance of your post?

  60. mick August 20th, 2011 at 5:06 pm

    i have met ppl like this before
    they are always the victim
    whether warranted or not
    attacked or not
    their negativity is a self fulfilling prophesy
    and feeds on itself
    blaming others for their inadequacies.

  61. Vineyard Yankee August 20th, 2011 at 5:07 pm

    Hey mick-

    How ’bout footnoting the source of that essay on the use of ‘ad hominem’ in the blogosphere?
    Reads a little above your skill level.

  63. mick August 20th, 2011 at 5:08 pm

    Supposed ‘victims’ live for blaming others, more often than not it is coupled with zero accountability.

  66. West Coast Yankee Fan August 20th, 2011 at 5:10 pm

    Sigh. If AJ wasn’t pitching I could find my zen and remain above the fray. Alas, that’s not possible.

    What’s the odds of Mauer still only having one home run to his credit this year after tonight?

  67. rb from LI August 20th, 2011 at 5:10 pm

    I’m an outsider in all this, so I know I’ll get flamed, but seriously get real…

    I don’t really have to say a word mick, you just keep putting your foot in your mouth.

    When a majority of your posts are about Betsy, it’s gone way beyond funny and into the really creepy zone. You have taken it to an unacceptable level.

    You are stalking and bullying her. Every time you do that I will make you well aware of my disapproval. If it makes this place uncomfortable, good, then everybody should write to Chad and get us both banned.

    As for WCYF and his imaginary friends, I proudly wear your disdain. It means I am doing something right.

  79. vinslol August 20th, 2011 at 5:17 pm

    best case scenario going forward next year the yanks have two catchers who can essentially split the games 50/50

    and if one slumps, the other gets a higher percentage of games that week..it’s pretty win win since they’re both young

    though I wouldn’t be completely surprised if cashman trades martin for a crazy package in the offseason, i don’t necessarily see it happening

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Simply said, Burnett can’t stand prosperity. He thinks a 1-run lead is a comfort zone and gets careless. Nearest thing to a guarantee that he’ll wilt from the 5th to the 7th inning.

    “Quality” is a subjective not objective term isn’t it? As is “educated poster”, isn’t that right? Accordingly who do you propose define what “quality” is, or what an “educated poster” is?

    A 4-seam fastball has the least movement of any baseball pitch, but having the least != absence of any movement at all. And of course some pitchers have more movement on their 4-seam than other pitchers.

    Simple baseball things anyone who watches the game can know. Hughes fastball has more movement than Michael Bowdens. Ubaldo Jimenez’s fastball has more movement than Hughes.

    “Quality” is a subjective not objective term isn’t it? As is “educated poster”, isn’t that right? Accordingly who do you propose define what “quality” is, or what an “educated poster” is?

    ——————————————————————————

    West Coast- we’ve chatted a few times in the past. It’s always about baseball- I never get pulled into personal arguments because let’s face it, who cares what I think.

    But to answer your question, I personally read the comments section of this board to get various insights and opinions on the Yankees. I think the blog is at its best when posters like CB (for example), who obviously know what they’re talking about, are talking about the game. I miss posts like his evaluation of Hughes and Tex last night. This is not to say posters like him are always 100% correct- I enjoy them because they are informative and challenge me to reassess my own opinions.

    The more bickering we have in here, the less likely I am to be able enjoy the part of the blog I come by to read.

    That’s what I mean.

    Don’t give me it’s for her own good bull. In case you haven’t noticed you are obsessed with her, It’s unhealthy.

    I disagree with Betsy on baseball matters. I either let her know about it or I don’t. Regardless, It doesn’t give me a license to be a bully and a persistent stalker.

    If it ever was funny, it stopped about 2000 posts ago.

    What you and the WCYF pretend crew have done, is at times turned this place into a mob picking on her ( it’s sickening). I have had enough. I can’t stop everybody, but if you do it, and I am here, you will hear from me.

    Of course you could just drop it, and we could all go on our merry way.

    Dad

    Starting with the game thread I wll limit my posts to baseball. Thanks for your efforts!

  116. DadinIowa August 20th, 2011 at 5:51 pm

    Tar: Good idea. Unfortunately, those who want to monopolize the blog live on people responding to them. That’s how they get their jollies. Unfortunately, it drives good Yankee fans away. Not difficult for them to antagonize or bully or whatever to get people to respond to them. I guess that’s fine for them. But, I still don’t understand why Chad doesn’t do anything about it. He may be getting the # of posts that he wants, but the blog will die as more and more Yankee fans leave. That’s a shame. Chad provides GREAT content.

    and i confront her but she always takes it wrong.

    its so obvious.
    if you disagree with her she attacks you.

    Time and again he’s proven he can’t protect a comfortable lead. I’ll go with 5 thinking that Girardi has learned his lesson and gets the bullpen heated up at the first sign of trouble. Burnett should be a short leash.

    Girardi said ARod may not be activated until Tuesday.

    Of course, Tuesday I expect them to say that, though he’s making progress running around on the field in shorts and running the bases and doing drills, he’s still a bit tentative charging for bunts, and it might not be until the following weekend.

    Then the following weekend that everything is great, he feels the best he’s felt so far, but just to be sure he might not be activated until Sept. 15.

    Then on Sept. 15 that the knee feels 99.95 percent, and the drills he’s doing with Kelleher are helping alot, but that he’s still a bit tentative about diving to his left, so they might wait until the playoffs, just to make sure.

    The # of posts have been dropping for some time.

    It’s getting less all the time.

    There used to be over 2000 post during RS games.

    Then some came here with the sole purpose of causing trouble. Some much worse than others.

  131. DadinIowa August 20th, 2011 at 6:13 pm

    Maine: Any idea why Chad refuses to take care of the problem?

  132. Tar August 20th, 2011 at 6:14 pm

    I agree with Dad.

    If certain people can’t stop causing trouble, Chad needs to step in and get rid of the troublemakers.

    The game thread last night was a nice first step, yet some used it to mock and ridicule dad for his efforts. Why?

    I want to read GB and Randy and CB and blake and on and on —talk about baseball. Not freaking drama with the same idiots over and over again.

    I’m not even talking about the knuckleheads like ruby tuesday et al, they are easy to ignore.

    It’s the flagrant troublemakers that I am talking about. I say change your ways , or everyone needs to bug Chad to get rid of them.

I know that I have a problem with posters that badger other posters under the guise of trying to create blog peace. Those people are called phonies and I do not like them, but others may not have a problem with that sort of thing.

    Here’s my two cents….the bickering bothers me some, but not as much as the negative, doomsaying trolls who populate the game threads. Having said that, you guys need to ease up on the name calling, or at least try to keep it more humorous and less mean spirited.

    It’s the blatant trolls like Stuart, JTHC and others who really bug me.

    Maine. It’s a baseball blog get over it. It’s subjective and what one doesn’t care for another does. I find many of the so called regulars to be pompous and elitist. If you think 1,000 posts was something to cheer about, you don’t mention that hundreds of them were chicken recipes and mindless banter about Muppets and crushes on Johnny Damon and sycophantic cheerleading and repetitive boring statistics.

  139. DadinIowa August 20th, 2011 at 6:19 pm

    Maine: All of the oldsters here can think of three or four posters, who continue to make the blog just about unreadable. Not difficult for Chad or his bosses to know who they are. Not sure why they don’t get rid of them. But, its their blog, so…….
