Cashman to once again rappel for Stamford’s holiday celebration

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Nov 27, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Brian Cashman is once again going to rappel as part of the holiday festivities in Stamford, Conn. And this time he’ll be joined by Bobby Valentine. Here are the details in the city of Stamford’s press release.

On Friday, November 30 from 6:00 to 9:00am (ET), Rick Reichmuth, FOX News Channel’s Meteoroligist, Brian Cashman, General Manager of the New York Yankees and sports great Bobby Valentine will broadcast live from the top, middle and bottom of one of Stamford, CT’s tallest buildings, The Landmark Building.

Santa’s Elf, Brian VanOrsdel will be on hand, strapping Rick, Brian and Bobby in and guiding them down the 22 stories of the building, all the while broadcasting live on the FOX News Channel, “FOX & Friends” morning newscast. FOX & Friends is the #1 cable morning show in the nation and has been #1 for over 100 months in a row. The event marks the start of Rappelling Santa’s arrival in Stamford and is a good practice run for the rappelling crew for Sunday’s Heights & Lights program

On Sunday, December 2 at 5:00 pm Brian Cashman, Bobby Valentine, Rick Reichmuth, Santa and friends are scheduled once again to make their dare devil descent down the 22 stories of the Landmark Building, for Reckson, A Division of SL Green Realty Corp’s Rappelling Santa. After the rappel, Santa’s busy holiday schedule will take him straight up Bedford Street to Latham Park where he will join the Stamford Community in Latham Park for music with The Jumpers Orchestra and the lighting of the Holiday Tree, donated by Bartlett Tree Company.

WHEN
Practice Rappel: Friday, November 30, 2012, 6:00 AM to 9:00 AM

    Hi Tar, the best known Rush song,…..wasn’t written by Mr. Chain smoking Peart. Pye Dubois ( reason why Max Webster composed ) had left overs and presented Rush lyrics for, ” Tom Sawyer “. Par usual, Alex and Ged sequestered away to mind the music.

    Think what Glenn Gould would have done !!!

  17. Duh Innings II November 27th, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    Will Cashman once again have a crazy stalker woman come after him? LOL!

    This guy is such a little twit.

    This is what he’s done this offseason:

    Picked up the club options on Cano and Granderson (no-brainers.)

    Made one-year offers to Soriano, Cashman, and Kuroda (no-brainers.)

    Re-signed Kuroda and Pettitte (no-brainers – he’ll do another no-brainer re-signing bringing back Rivera.)

    Signed Eli Whiteside for a ridiculous $625K he is not worth and David (?) Herndon to a contract where he could make $750K he’s not worth, so Cashman could piss away as much as $1.375M on cra p.

    WHERE IS THE NEW MINIMUM .285 / .350 / .450 BAT ???

    These are the moves a rookie GM or a fan could make and yet this guy has been the Yanks GM since 1998.

    He’s so stupid. Had he signed Scott Baker, the rotation would’ve been even stronger than it is now: Sabathia/Kuroda/Hughes/Pettitte/Baker. This would’ve given the Yanks more depth in the rotation and allowed them to trade Nova or Phelps for a bat and keep the other guy, Warren, and Pineda et.al. (and who says the Yanks couldn’t take a minor-league contract flier on a veteran starter?)

    Had he signed David Ross, he’d have had his solid defensive catcher at a bargain price, so what if Ross hits less HR than Martin? First off the guy hit 9 HR in very limited play in 2012 so I think he’d have been good for at least 14 HR. Second add a HR or two from Stewart or Whiteside and that’s 15-16 HR from the catcher, only 6-7 less HR from the catcher in 2013 than in 2012, big deal. I never knew catching was about hitting homeruns.

    The dude either throws money at players or makes no-brainer moves. His last great trade was for Swisher but he negated it with two absolutely ridiculous trades: Montero and Noesi for Pineda and Campos, Kontos for Stewart. Had he kept Montero, Noesi, and Kontos, the Yanks would have an even stronger bullpen (Kontos), one more arm from AAA to call up (Noesi), and I think a young DH who could’ve caught a bit, learned some 1B and RF, and posted 20-25 HR, 70-85 RBI a year for the next 5 years in the process (Montero.)

    He should be fired if the 2013 Yanks don’t make the postseason or past the ALDS, or they get swept or knocked out in five games in the ALCS – or let go if this is his last season under contract?

  18. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    it seems pretty obvious to me that the yankees plan is to trade gradnerson at the winter meetings for a 3bman, sign victorino or a LF (gardner to cf) and leave the fate of the 2013 yankees largely to a rebound from alex rodriguez. with his contract and the lt threshold looming large, there doesnt seem to be much more they can do

    hank screwed this franchise (altough obviously others were in his court at the time) and we’ll be paying for it through 2017 and beyond.

    hate to have to say it but i told you so

  19. blake November 27th, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    Tar,

    Must admit its kinda nice watching an offense that doesn’t include Harrison Barnes shooting it every time

  20. blake November 27th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    “it seems pretty obvious to me that the yankees plan is to trade gradnerson at the winter meetings for a 3bman”

    Hi Nick, my neighbour was safe keeping a scarlet Roush version in the driveway the other day. Steve would have ruined it, bad lying driver that he is! :)

  22. LGY November 27th, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    Hank didn’t screw the franchise. Alex has a bad contract but if the Yankees keep on operating like they normally do and there is plenty of money to field a championship caliber team.

    Hal’s decision to impose some sort of self punishment on the team and line his pockets is screwing the Yankees.

  23. Tar November 27th, 2012 at 10:02 pm

    Blake

    Yeah I agree.

    Think of have this team with Marshall. He should have stayed, oh well. I am really liking Johnson.Whats up with PJ? did I hear he ‘s not playing?

  24. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 10:03 pm

    scott baker, the answer to the yankees problems…..

    You act like the Yankees and sign Hamilton and they are the best team in baseball heading into 2013.

    Yup. Sign Hamilton, trade Granderson for a 3B or SS prospect if you can and find a platoon partner for Ichiro and you’re set

  30. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    if arod spends 14 seasons as the highest paid yankee and wins only 1 WS, the arod ‘era’ will go down as one of the worst eras of yankees history (just slightly ahead of the mattingly era)

  31. blake November 27th, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    I really think if the Yanks offered Hamilton a 4/100 deal with an opt out after year one that he might take it…..

  32. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    i should point out that mattingly was not the highest paid yankee through most of the ‘mattingly era’

  33. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 10:09 pm

    ill give hamilton an opt-out only if the yankees get one, too. (too bad they didnt think of that when they signed arod)

    Alex won two MVPs his first four years in Pinstripes.

    How is it his fault Cashman didn’t surround him with enough talent?

    Nah….but he’d take it if he had a good 2013….players always take opt outs….it’d turn a 4 year deal into a one year deal

  38. jmills November 27th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    Blake, I think someone should give Mike Marshall a chance too. Given the blown arms, I’m ready to listen.

  39. blake November 27th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    It’s easy to forget how good Arod was when he signed his current contract ….looks bad now …but it would be less of an issue if ownership didn’t hold it over the teams head

  40. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    blake, i do like your thinking. i think the yankees should have a policy that we’ll pay a player huge money each year on a short contract but not get sucked into longer term contracts that take a player into his late 30′s and 40′s.

    for instance, i’d offer cano up to $30 M per year but only for 4 years (takes him to age 35 i believe)

    top dollar for prime years but nothing beyond that, imo.

    huge money in your prime years but no commitment beyond that.

    One would think….he’s treated like a crazy old man by much of the baseball community though…..problem is that the current ways aren’t working very well

  42. yankeefeminista November 27th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    What blake meant to say: “Must admit its kinda nice watching an offense.”

    Too bad, ARod wasn’t supported by better pitching… Cash must still be traumatized by Kevin Brown. I know I am.

  43. Tar November 27th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    “i should point out that mattingly was not the highest paid yankee through most of the ‘mattingly era’”

    Can we just stipulate that “highest paid player ” doesn’t mean best player. I don’t get why some hold good contracts against players. All it means is they had a good agent. The Steins can well afford to pay Alex.

  44. blake November 27th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    “huge money in your prime years but no commitment beyond that.”

    Makes sense if players would go along with it

  45. raymagnetic November 27th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    “I never knew catching was about hitting homeruns.”

    Said the guy whose whole catcher argument is based on HR’s :?

  46. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    dude, he was 31 when they signed him to a 10 year contract at $30M per. any idiiot could see that no matter how good arod was then that it would be a disasterous contract in the long run. and guess what….it was.

    same for the angel’s contract with pujols, sheer idiocy.

    you pay the huge bucks for the prime years, dont get sucked into the ‘old man’ years. it cripples the francise.

  47. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    if the players dont go along with that, you dont sign them. nobody held a gun to the yankees heads, yet the agreed to the worst contract in sports history.

  48. blake November 27th, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    “dude, he was 31 when they signed him to a 10 year contract at $30M per. any idiiot could see that no matter how good arod was then that it would be a disasterous contract in the long run. and guess what….it was.”

    Think is though that he was just coming off a historically great season….had never been hurt ….no PED revelations….players were still performing into their late 30s…..etc.

    Arod was on track to break all the records in pinstripes and “save the game ” from Barry bonds.

    It was a bad contract but it looks much worse in hindsight knowing that his hip went….the PED stuff came out…..and that he’s declined so rapidly.

  49. Tar November 27th, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    “dude, he was 31 when they signed him to a 10 year contract at $30M per.”

    And who do you blame for that?

  50. blake November 27th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    Boras worked the Steinbrenner boys when they were new to the game….he had all the leverage and he knew the boys would cave because they were inexperienced and they wouldn’t want to be the ones to let Arod go…..Arod was the best player in baseball in the winter of 2007 and Boras worked his genius.0

  52. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    i blame hank primarily and hal for that. it was patently ridiculous from the start. how many players at 38, 39, 40, 41 and 42 were worth the equivilent of $30M? pretty much none, not even the babe himself.

  53. luis November 27th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    Good evening guys,

    Just a couple of thoughts:

    1) If Martin wants 4 years at 10 mil per. It was nice to meet you, have a good career elsewhere.

    2) It’s good to know that both Andy and Mo are close to signing. That would bring some grade of certainty on the pitching side. A rotation of C, Hiroki, Andy, Hughes, Nova and Phelps is pretty deep.

    3) Let’s get Hamilton, and this team should be fine.

  54. jackamir November 27th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    Who cares what Cashman & Valentine do in their spare time. Cashman should be in his office putting closure on a new roster…

  55. Tar November 27th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    I agree with you there, Stupid contract.

    But if you blame them, like I do then I don’t understand this statement

    “if arod spends 14 seasons as the highest paid yankee and wins only 1 WS, the arod ‘era’ will go down as one of the worst eras of yankees history (just slightly ahead of the mattingly era)”

  56. blake November 27th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    The Pujols contract is much dumber than Alex’s to me because the Angels had an example of what not to do and ignored it…..and also because Pujols was already showing signs of decline before the deal whereas Arod was not

  57. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    ==========================================

    a contract has two parties. in this case the payee and the payer. the payers were stupid to believe that the payee was going to do what the payee’s representative claimed he would do. but the payee bears the responsibility for not living up to the claims that his representative claimed he would.

    the yankees were stupid for signing the contract.

    the player and his reps are also responsible for not living up to anywhere near what the claimed he would.

  58. luis November 27th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    Arod’s contract is not his fault… It is the FO fault or the owners in this case… Add to this the self imposed restrains on spending and you have a very bad combination for sustained success…

  59. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    remember that boras claimed quite famously that arod was going to be the best player in the history of baseball. unless he finds the fountain of youth (or the fountain of bonds) , he wont be in the top 5.

  60. Tar November 27th, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    Y’s we disagree.

    Blake

    It’s getting ugly. :sad:

  61. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    sorry i dont buy that any player is not responsible for living up to something near what their agent claims they will live up to barring extreme injury. if the agent is just flat-out lying then they are bargaining in bad faith.

  62. blake November 27th, 2012 at 10:48 pm

  66. Cashman needs to go November 27th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    So let me see if i have these dates correct..

    This dork of a loser cashman will be rappeling down a building wearing his wig yet again on December 2nd at 5pm….and baseball’s winter meetings start bright and early the following day..so all of the competent GM’s will be snug in their hotel rooms sunday night getting ready to do their jobs the next day while baldy will be waking up monday morning next to the homeless lady he picked up after rappeling down the building and then making like OJ simpson in the airport monday morning trying to catch a plane to nashville..

    if that doesn’t tell you how involved the yankess will be at the wnter meetings i don’t know what will..i

    i see a 3rd place finish at best next year with Chris “Tweety” Dickerson as the yankees new rightfielder and clean up hitter…

  67. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    one more thing is this…. the player knew (and most likely the agent knew, too) (but the team didn’t ) that he had gained his place in baseball with the aid of performance enhancing drugs).

    i advocated that the team should have sued to void the contract based on this misrepresentation, but the team opted not to pusue that (a mistake almost as egregious to the team as the contract signing itself)

  68. Tar November 27th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    “remember that boras claimed quite famously that arod was going to be the best player in the history of baseball. ”

    I remember that Alex purposely negotiated that deal without Boras.

  69. jackamir November 27th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Pat M—- UCLA is a big disappointment so far… I think they will grow and get better but there seems to be drama involved with the Bruins..

  70. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    first question to “cashman needs to go” is this: where did you predict the yankees to finish last season (im guessing third, but since you were using a diffferent s.n. then we can’t track it).

    the second question is: how many trades do you expect to be made on the first day of the meetings or the day before the first day of the meetings?

  71. blake November 27th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    “i advocated that the team should have sued to void the contract based on this misrepresentation, but the team opted not to pusue that (a mistake almost as egregious to the team as the contract signing itself)”

    Given that the 2003 test results were supposed to be confidential and that we still shouldn’t even know Arod tested positive the I doubt very much that would have worked…..

  72. Pat M. November 27th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    jacksquat…….I watched UCLA blow a 17 point lead at Pauley vs. Cal Poly the other night…..They too are very young and are going to be a handful come February…….They have some seriously good Freshman

  73. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    confidentiality has no standing because the player admitted his ped usage.

  74. Tar November 27th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    “one more thing is this…. the player knew (and most likely the agent knew, too) (but the team didn’t ) that he had gained his place in baseball with the aid of performance enhancing drugs).”

    Everybody knew, or should have known. It was rampant and encouraged by MLB.

  77. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    assumed rampant usage of ped’s does not excuse the player and his representative from attaining a contract through false representation (that he achieved his statics by playing within the rules, which he didn’t.)

  80. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    arod admitted to using ped’s through no fault or coesrsion of the yankees. as i said, selena roberts did not work for the yankees. and noboby force arod to confess, he did that of his own volition with no coercion from the yankees.

  81. blake November 27th, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    Big rift

  82. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    you dont know that the yankees would not have won a false representation suit. they chose not to pusue that because they still believed the contract would work out for both sides.

    boy were they wrong.

  83. blake November 27th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    “arod admitted to using ped’s through no fault or coesrsion of the yankees. as i said, selena roberts did not work for the yankees. and noboby force arod to confess, he did that of his own volition with no coercion from the yankees.”

    So

  84. Tar November 27th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    “assumed rampant usage of ped’s does not excuse the player and his representative from attaining a contract through false representation (that he achieved his statics by playing within the rules, which he didn’t.)”

    A for effort, but what the hell are you talking about.

    DId Alex sign a contract that stated he never used steroids? Everything else is just noise.

  85. blake November 27th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    “you dont know that the yankees would not have won a false representation suit. they chose not to pusue that because they still believed the contract would work out for both sides.”

    I’m pretty sure….,too difficult to prove the effects on performance etc….actually Arod could probably have sue MLB for letting his name slip out after he was promised it was confidential

    Tar,

    Probably not … I turned it off …couldn’t stand anymore

  88. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    in a false representation suit the yankees would not have had to prove anyting about the effects of perfomance enhancing drugs. they would only have had to prove that arod had cheated and didnt disclose that to the yankees prior to negotiating the contract. (which his admission made obvious)

    the outcome of such a suit likely would have been a settlement for less than the $30M/year and likely no bonuses for the home run records, which he doesnt deserve in the first place due to his cheating.

  89. blake November 27th, 2012 at 11:24 pm

    “the outcome of such a suit likely would have been a settlement for less than the $30M/year and likely no bonuses for the home run records, which he doesnt deserve in the first place due to his cheating.”

    I highly doubt it….. But who knows.

    Night all

  90. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    regardless of what the yankees did or didnt do in the light of the roberts report and arod’s admission, arod could have sued mlb for the leak but they would have had to prove who leaked the info and that they had the approval, implied or implicit, to leak that info from mlb. or that mlb was negligent in some way which resulted in the information being leaked.

    they may well have been able to prove that but it wouldnt have affected any suit by the yankees for attaining a contract through false representation.

  91. Tar November 27th, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    See ya Blake

  92. Pat M. November 27th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    Tar……Without going into details, there’ll be no more summer farm reports or game updates…..

  93. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    the silver lining for arod would have been that the court could potentially have put selena roberts in jail until she gave up her sources on the test result.

    but since the roberts report, etc all happened long after the contract was signed it would have had no effect on any suit by the yankees to void the contract due to false representaion.

  94. Tar November 27th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    “they had the approval, implied or implicit, to leak that info from mlb. or that mlb was negligent in some way which resulted in the information being leaked.’

    The fact that the names were leaked is proof of negligence.

    “they may well have been able to prove that but it wouldnt have affected any suit by the yankees for attaining a contract through false representation.”

    If a suit was possible why wouldn’t the Yankees bring it now? or next year or .. I’ll tell you why Because it’s not possible. No chance of them bringing suit because they don’t have any chance of winning.

  95. Tar November 27th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Pat M, GB?

  98. Ys Guy November 27th, 2012 at 11:50 pm

    “The fact that the names were leaked is proof of negligence.”

    not true in the case of mlb. if some clerk or lawyer involved in the handling of the information had breached a confidentiality agreement with mlb not to disclose the information they saw in leaking the information, then mlb is not guilty of negligence. it is even possible that one of the agents, lawyers, secretaries\, union employees or general flunkies who work for players or agents leaked the results.

    “If a suit was possible why wouldn’t the Yankees bring it now?”

    any such suit could stretch out for years into the future and would cause a cloud to hang over the team, arod and the fans as well as the team’s ability to sell season tickets, and would negatively affect revenues.

    i dont know how long the period is that they could bring that suit but the contract was signed in 2007 so its already been 5 years. it is very likely that the ‘statute of limitations’ runs out before the arod contract expires.

    really really bad news pat. thanks for pursuing that. i tried serveral times over the summer to find out what happened but couldn’t find anything. i considered at the time that ‘no news is good news’ but as time passed it became more ominous.

    gb and i had a strange relationship on this blog going back 5 years (no unlike my relationship with randy). we disagreed often but i respected his input, his fandom, and above all his service.

    i miss him and the blog is missing one of it’s major voices.

  105. Jerkface November 28th, 2012 at 12:17 am

    There is no way any team is going to win any kind of suit regarding PEDs. Especially when the player in question tested positive 4 years before he even signed the contract and no times since.

    Its fantasy to imagine the Yankees somehow taking A-rod to court over it.

  106. Tar November 28th, 2012 at 12:19 am

    :sad:

    This made him laugh.

  107. Ys Guy November 28th, 2012 at 12:26 am

    idk if gb7 hated pete abraham or just liked to tweak him. but he had an incredible ability to get under pete’s skin.

    to Pabe’s credit he would argue with him, insult his opinions and generally make his disagreement with gb7 known to all, but i dont think pete ever banned gb. and he banned alot of people.

    man, those were fun times…

    later on, i joined a ‘splinter group’ of lohudders and former lohudders who have a fantasy baseball league and although gb loved to make fun of fbb he was a regular contributor to our mailing list, constantly passing on information about fringe players and minor league promotion guys who might help whomever needed help in the league. through this i found the ‘soft side’ of gb and became friends with him.

    who knows how many contributors to the lohud have gone on to greener pastures without anybody noting thier absence.

    i notice gb’s absence. and so do legions of others.

    enjoy the greener pastures, friend.

  108. Tar November 28th, 2012 at 12:32 am

    well said Y , and all true. I also wondered how he managed to not get banned.

    He was the kind of fan I always wanted to sit next to at a game. Just to listen to him talk about the game. I really wanted to go to a game him with sometime… sigh…

  109. Ys Guy November 28th, 2012 at 12:33 am

    unless arod’s attorneys could prove that the yankees had knowlege of the result of arod’s ped test from years earlier, then that has no bearing on any lawsuit based on false representation.

    lawyers know not to predict the outcomes of suits where no similar suit has been brought.

    no similar suit has yet been brought.

  110. jacksquat November 28th, 2012 at 12:37 am

    You may not be able to predict the outcome, but you can surely predict the circus.

  111. Jerkface November 28th, 2012 at 12:37 am

    unless arod’s attorneys could prove that the yankees had knowlege of the result of arod’s ped test from years earlier, then that has no bearing on any lawsuit based on false representation.

    The Yankees would have very little to stand on in a dispute based on the uniform player contract that A-rod signs because nothing in the contract stipulates he has to have never used PEDs in the past and a false representation claim has to be based on malicious actions of A-rod to convince the Yankees of something that is simply not required in the contract.

    As I said, it is fantasy to imagine any team taking any player to court for false representation. PEDs have an arbitrated system in the CBA, which pretty much rules out being able to take someone to court.

  112. Jerkface November 28th, 2012 at 12:41 am

    Yankees: “You used steroids that one time when you weren’t on our team!”
    A-rod: “Clean every year I’ve been on the Yankees, you paid me based on my clean MVP year, boom roasted, any statements I made as to being clean are thereby true for the period in which we associated.”
    Judge: “Case dismissed, the Yankees are hereby sentenced to triple A-rod’s salary!”
    HAL: “Ow, my profits!”

  113. trisha - true pinstriped blue November 28th, 2012 at 12:48 am

    I feel an ache inside. I truly grew to love GB. His loyalty to his Yakees was unsurpassed. And he had such great knowledge about the history of the Yankees and the different Yankee players from the past. It was apparent that GB practiced unconditional love when it came to the twins (his daughter’s children) and to the Yankees. And unconditional love is truly the most selfless kind of love there is, so I believe that GB was the ultimate Yankee fan

    The place feel empty without you here GB, but I hope you truly know just how much you really meant to so many people, I certainly included.

    Miss you buddy.

    PEDs have an arbitrated system in the CBA

    Drug testing as agreed upon by the players & owners, with the results able to be disputed through third party arbitration.

    Ys Guy, I am only hoping that he had someone there holding his hand.

  118. Ys Guy November 28th, 2012 at 1:12 am

    the yankees signed a contract with alex rodriguez based on the results he had attained up to that point playing baseball.

    unbeknowst to the yankees, alex rodriguez had attained at least some of those results by cheating.

    alex rodriguez subsequently admitted to this cheating.

    the yankees thus had agreed to a contract negotiated in bad faith by a player who knew he had attained his results by cheating but did not disclose this information at the time of the drawing of the contract.

  119. Ys Guy November 28th, 2012 at 1:13 am

    trisha, better yet, someone was holding his hand as he was watching the yankees clinch the alds vs. the orioles!

  120. Jerkface November 28th, 2012 at 1:16 am

    the yankees thus had agreed to a contract negotiated in bad faith by a player who knew he had attained his results by cheating but did not disclose this information at the time of the drawing of the contract.

    Weren’t against the rules when he did it. Its a uniform player contract, not a uniform clean player contract. Judge would throw the case out in a second.

  121. Ys Guy November 28th, 2012 at 1:18 am

    for a veteran, gb7 sure hated WAR!
    ..and any other ‘new fangled’ stats!

  122. Ys Guy November 28th, 2012 at 1:21 am

    we’ll never know if a judge would have thrown the suit out or not. a suit not brought is a suit not judged. i think it would have been allowed to go to trial, but who knows, not me or you.

  123. Jerkface November 28th, 2012 at 1:22 am

    Well you can allow for a 1% chance of success, but thinking outside the realm of fantasy would draw you to the correct conclusion as to the reality of what that case would bring.

  124. Ys Guy November 28th, 2012 at 1:27 am

    so with no intricate knowlege of contract law you have decided that there is only a 1% chance of a suit’s success.

    at least i admit i dont know contract law well enough to predict an outcome.

    the rules of baseball may not even be a factor in the judge’s decision in any such case as it does not necesarily negate a charge of false representation, but since you know how any court would decide, i guess it’s futile.

  125. Ys Guy November 28th, 2012 at 1:37 am

    I suspected as much when GB was gone for so long.

    He loved baseball so much that only something extremely serious would have kept him away.

    The one thing I’ll always remember about him was that he never took himself or anyone else too seriously.

    I’ll miss his bad puns.

    I’ll miss his MiLB reports.

    I’ll miss his onry ways.

    I’ll miss his terrible typing.

    I’ll miss his stories about “Killer”.

    And I’ll miss him generally.

    First and foremost he was a Soldier but he was also a humanitarian.

    I know we’ll meet again someday.

    Travel well friend. I’m honored to have known you.

    And thanks to Doreen and any others who persued this. We all now have closure.

    Condolences to his Family.

  137. Doreen November 28th, 2012 at 7:31 am

    Good Morning.

    Thanks for the kind words, Pat M. In truth, there were a few of us who have been trying to find GB7 since August. Despite my not posting here, I have kept in touch with GB7. He is surely missed.

    About a week ago, I got an email from Pat M. He forwarded to me an email from Trisha (who was also trying to find out what happened to our friend) with some information that turned out to not be correct. So I renewed my efforts, which really consisted, morbidly, of trying to find out if he died. At one point, I had called the VA hospital he went to during this past summer to see if he had been readmitted, but since he was not actually there on the date I called, they could not help me out.

    Anyway on Sunday I did another search, and his name came up. I confirmed what little information there was and contacted Pat M, but I need to let you all understand that I am not 100% comfortable with the level of confirmation, and I’m continuing to try to make sure this is correct. However, even if it is not correct, and one day GB7 himself comes here to chastise us that reports of his demise were greatly exaggerated, it saddens me that he is incapacitated enough to have not been able to add his input on all the things that have transpired since August, from all things Yankees to all the celebrity deaths that he also always posted about, often accompanied with some fun trivia.

    GB7 was (is) certainly a good friend, a kind and thoughtful person, and a great Yankee fan. Cantankerous at times, but a good good soul.

  138. Against All Odds November 28th, 2012 at 7:35 am

  139. MTU November 28th, 2012 at 7:36 am

    Blake-

    My guess is that GB would not have wanted us to mourn his passing for too long.

    He would have wanted us to move on with life.

    He never took himself or others all that seriously.

    He possesed a courage I will never know.

    And I have the greatest respect for that, and for his sacrifices.

    He wasn’t always the easiet person to get along with but you always knew where he stood.

    We’ll all meet again in the great beyond.

    So next time you have a drink lift a glass to his memory.

    I know I will.

    Sorry to hear about your boss.

    So one more year of fret and worry. :lol: (college)

    It’s good to know you haven’t frozen up in the great north. :lol:

    If the Angels lose Greinke to the Dodgers…. Their rotation is gonna be pretty dad thin after Weaver and Wilson

    MTU-

    That picture is too funny! After the Yankees resign both Pettitte and Rivera to reportedly 11M contracts each, I’ll reserve judgement on Cashman until I see if he can pull off an exciting trade for a right fielder at next week’s meetings in Nashville.

    Blake-Work on some of your Doctor friends to get you admitted to the Winter meetings and attend some of the conferences.

    That’s a TN. press pass.

  174. blake November 28th, 2012 at 8:26 am

    @jonmorosi: Brennan Boesch has garnered trade interest from multiple teams. One source believes Boesch could be dealt during winter meetings. #Tigers

  175. blake November 28th, 2012 at 8:28 am

    “All Blake has to do is show up in his best boots w. a jug.

    This is true! I may try that….or just offer Cashman some fake intel on a pitcher he can trade for in exchange for admittance

  176. blake November 28th, 2012 at 8:28 am

    @Ken_Rosenthal: Broxton deal with #Reds is three years, $21M. Also a club option for 2016. Salaries of $4M-$7M-$9M, with $1M buyout on $9M option.

    Madness

    I’d like to pass along my sympathies to GB 7′s family and friends. I enjoyed (and missed) our jousts and was proud of our common appreciation for the traditional stats that have served the game well for so long.

    It’s a reminder not to take ourselves or our opinions too seriously. We’ll all be moving on at some point.

  180. MTU November 28th, 2012 at 8:35 am

    What’s Plan B, if Martin goes to whomever “shows him the money?”

    Trade for tainted Amphetamine suspended Carlos Ruiz? Fits under the Yankees One Year Plan!

    Brennan Boesch would be a pretty good fit. big, strong LH bat who hits lefties well.

    I wonder what the price tag might be?

  185. MTU November 28th, 2012 at 8:39 am

    AJ P., Ruiz. Sure.

    I would not give Martin 3 yrs. much less 4.

    Sign the best back up you can (maybe Soto) and give Romjne a shot

    Tough choices Kate and MTU. If you watched the Dog Show from Philly last Thursday this is the breed that won in the category of Toy Dog:

    Both of your dogs are cuter.

  188. blake November 28th, 2012 at 8:44 am

    I’m less confident that the Yanks are gonna be able to trade for the bat they need…..and am growing more confident that Hamilton’s market is going to fall into the range where they should sign him.

    Sign Hamilton, Trade Granderson, sign a platoon partner for Ichiro.

    Mine is a Cairn terrier, like Toto. She is small but tough, a good hiking/canoeing/travelling companion.

  194. blake November 28th, 2012 at 8:48 am

    The Yankees should ask about Trumbo….if the Angels lose Greinke then their pitching is gonna be in shambles….they have nobody after Wilson in that rotation.

  195. Yankee Trader November 28th, 2012 at 8:50 am

    “We have already heard that Mariano Rivera is coming back for another go at it. Andy Pettitte seems on his way back as well. Derek Jeter is mending in Tampa and is said to be on target for the start of the season or soon after. For Yankee fans and baseball fans, the inevitable has been pushed back one more time. It looks like the old guys are going to work together at least one more time.”

    Read the rest-just released a few minutes ago:

  196. blake November 28th, 2012 at 8:51 am

    Sign Hamilton
    Nova + Granderson for Trumbo

    Offense fixed :)

  197. MTU November 28th, 2012 at 8:53 am

    Not sure if Trumbo is Rambo or Dumbo at this point ?

  198. Yankee Trader November 28th, 2012 at 8:53 am

    Blake-

    Wilson and Weaver.

  199. blake November 28th, 2012 at 8:54 am

    “Blake-

    Wilson and Weaver.”

    They will have nothing after that and Wilson was pretty awful in the 2 Nd half last year

  200. MTU November 28th, 2012 at 8:55 am

    Wilson and Weaver

    R U a believer.

    Catchy isn’t it ?

    :)

  201. blake November 28th, 2012 at 8:57 am

    Trumbo is a bad outfielder and they have given up on him a 3b….he can’t play 1B cause Albert is there and apparently they don’t want to make him the full time DH……his value is pretty high now….they should probably trade him for pitching of they lose Greinke.

    Trumbo for Shields would make some sense for both parties as Tampa could put him at 1b

  202. MTU November 28th, 2012 at 8:57 am

    And they no longer have Santana to bail them out.
