    “My husband can not f****ing throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”

    Shayne Graham just kicked a 55 yard field goal and set a playoff record at Gillette Stadium!

    :D

    BIG AL broke the Lohud! :)

  4. blake January 13th, 2013 at 6:22 pm

    Who broke the Lohud?

  5. tomingeorgia January 13th, 2013 at 6:22 pm

    All I wanted to say was, Go Falcons, and that Tony Gonzales would have a big day. Thought I broke it.

  7. austinmac January 13th, 2013 at 6:28 pm

    I had so many insightful things to say, but now I’ve forgotten them. :)

    What did blake do for all those hours, play with his kid?

  9. Nick in SF January 13th, 2013 at 6:37 pm

    Of course LoHud was broken. Today is The Anniversary, after all.

  10. Locke January 13th, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    The anniversary of signing Kuroda to a team friendly one-year deal.

    Took his talents to RAB :)

    AAO,
    I went over there too, but not for too long.

    “Trisha,

    I love you lady, but, if one simply sits back and hopes for change, you should not be disappointed if it does not come.”

    Big Al, and you know I love you too. When’s the last time you saw me disappointed in the Yankees? I don’t hope for anything except for the team to do the best job they can. And I trust that the organization will put a team on the field capable of winning. The rest for me is gravy! I just enjoy watching things unfold.

    I am an extremely grateful Yankee fan. And I see worry about something I can’t control as a needless expenditure of energy.

    I am going to trust someone’s words until they do something that makes me think they are not trustable. I’ll go with what Hal said about the $189 and the team. No reason for me not to!

    :)

    “Of course LoHud was broken. Today is The Anniversary, after all.”

    And the world continues to spin on its axis. Hot damn!

  15. Against All Odds January 13th, 2013 at 6:45 pm

    I was back and forth between there and seeing when Lohud was coming back

  16. Ys Guy January 13th, 2013 at 6:50 pm

    while the lohud was down the yankees traded cano for upton

    then arizona traded cano to seattle for montero

    then the yankees worked out a 3 way trade that sent cano to the yankees montero to seattle and upton to arizona.

  17. tomingeorgia January 13th, 2013 at 6:53 pm

    Ys,
    Works for me. Stroke.

    “I’m surprised to hear that there’s anger if you see what we’ve done this offseason,” Steinbrenner said, according to the Wall Street Journal. “Like I said, we’ve signed three or four of the top free agents on the market, because we’re going to continue to field a championship-caliber team. I’m a little surprised to hear that.””

    Fans will believe anything…..right Hal
    ///

    I don’t think Hal knows the difference between signing an Ichiro for two years, vs. signing a 28-year old Melky Cabrera, coming off two straight seasons of hitting .300 or better from both sides of the plate.

    I don’t think Hal understands splits, or the decline of bat speed and skills that attend age (Youkilis), or anything, frankly, that separates a free-agent signing from a “top” free-agent signing, unless he’s talking strictly pitching, but I don’t think Hal makes those kinds of distinctions. His strength is crunching numbers. He didn’t, overnight, develop savvy talent discernment, and unfortunately, he’s relying on someone who isn’t very good at it, either, and unfortunately, that someone is relying on someone else (Eppler??) who, apparently, also isn’t very good at it.

    We have this, coinciding with the Yankees having got religion on their budget: not a very good formula for success. I still think, however, that they’re going to break down and make some kind of deal for a real bat…especially since they’re not getting the free quarters they’ve gotten since this day, one year ago. The question becomes, what will that cost be?

  19. J. Alfred Prufrock January 13th, 2013 at 6:56 pm

    Clearly, the malfunction of this site today, January the 13th, is symbolic.

    He understands Ichiro brings in Japanese cash. ….so that’s bought it

  22. jacksquat January 13th, 2013 at 7:05 pm

    So, all this uproar about Upton because of something Morosi said? Really? You guys broke the blog, Upton Overload!

    You guys do realize that Upton is and always has been a longshot, right? You all saw what Seattle was going to have to give up to get him. I’m not willing to give up equivalent talent, so no uproar here…

    And I told you all months ago that the Yankees were within 20 mil of last year’s payroll, and that was before they signed Youkilis and Ichiro. So if you are surprised, maybe you should start paying attention.

  23. blake January 13th, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    “Took his talents to RAB ”

    Yea I dabbled over there….lot of snark and unhappiness on that site….I like what the writers do but not crazy about the comments section

  24. jacksquat January 13th, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    I think Hal just knows big names that have been around a while like Pettitte, Ichiro, Youkilis and maybe Kuroda…

    So to him, those are big free agents. Similar to his father actually, the big names get the attention, even if they are past their prime.

    You’re kidding, right?

    Nope

  27. Against All Odds January 13th, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    Dabbled you had your hands in everything lol. Yea the comments section gets crazy. I think because some posters are so negative that when anyone offers an opinion that is not pom pom waving they get jumped on. Rich went through the same thing.

  28. Against All Odds January 13th, 2013 at 7:11 pm

    He’s not kidding. Blake was called annoying now does anyone on here think Blake is annoying.

  29. J. Alfred Prufrock January 13th, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    Problem with RAB is there is an RAB “type” and that’s basically it. Sarcasm is overdone on these sites to begin with; over there, it’s religion. Haven’t read the RAB comments section in forever.

  30. austinmac January 13th, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    I like Blake, but he can never get Cashman to listen to him.

  31. J. Alfred Prufrock January 13th, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    Odds, annoying, no. Obsessed with Upton? yes. :D

  32. Against All Odds January 13th, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    Blake does tend to latch on to an idea or player :) but like the rest of us his heart is in the right place. Besides we all have our obsessions when it comes to players. You and I still talk about Joba starting lol

  33. jacksquat January 13th, 2013 at 7:18 pm

    Fangraphs has an article on Upton that may be of interest to some:

    “Justin Upton’s Trade Value”

  34. blake January 13th, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    People that frequent RAB….is Ted Nelson a troll or just a douchebag? I can’t really tell

  35. jacksquat January 13th, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    You mean on RAB they are even more negative than here? :shock:

  36. tomingeorgia January 13th, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    JAP, None with some catcher (maybe)?

  37. Against All Odds January 13th, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    At jack trolls run rampant on RAB so when someone like Blake or Rich go over and express an opinion it gets met with anger because they think they’re negative Yankee fans.

    @ Blake Ted is a douche. I had run ins with him numerous times a yr or two ago. In one particular argument he basically disrespected the college I went too and called me dumb. His reason for doing so was he takes a lot of stuff from everyone else on RAB. Does that make sense you insult me because other ppl have insulted you lol. Keep in mind I never got personal with him.

  38. Against All Odds January 13th, 2013 at 7:27 pm

  39. yankeefeminista January 13th, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    Ugh. The infamous trade took place on Friday the 13th. I guess Lohud’s “technical difficulties” today were actually a long moment of silence, commemorating the symbolic and actual death of our present and future offense. ;)

    Odds, +1

    Blake, aren’t there only like about 8 people that consistently post on RAB. Seems it is the same names over and over again.

    Can the Texans please score here!

  40. blake January 13th, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    I think RAB is just a very saber driven blog….and therefore I guess attracts a certain type of follower….I like Axisa’s stuff but everyone there seems to be fighting for the smartest guy in the room title

  41. J. Alfred Prufrock January 13th, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it.

  42. blake January 13th, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    I latch on to one or two players a year then watch Cashman ignore me…..it’s a pattern….an unhealthy one

    Here’s what I’d do with C and DH:

    April-May: Romine C & Mustelier DH

    If they suck, Stewart C & Canzler DH for June (Romine & Mustelier back to AAA, Cervelli & Mesa called up)

    If they suck, trade for a C and/or a DH in July, Stewart & Canzler back to the bench.

    I expect at least 6 HR and 25 RBI from each position not counting production by everyday position players for DH through the first half (81 games.)

    Martin and Stewart combined for 22 HR and 65 RBI last year. 6 HR and 25 RBI through the first half is a 12 HR 50 RBI pace, a loss of 10 HR and 15 RBI from the C. I have full confidence that Teixiera could post the 34 HR and 99 RBI which would negate the loss of HR and RBI from C since he posted 24 HR and 84 RBI last year.

    Ibanez posted 19 HR and 62 RBI primarily as the DH. A 12 HR and 50 RBI pace by the primary DH is a loss of 7 HR and 12 RBI. I have full confidence that Cano could post the 106 RBI which would negate the loss of RBI from DH and smack 35 HR to make up for 2 of the 7 HR lost from DH.

    What people have to understand about the 2013 Yankees offense is it will be a big-time basestealing and bunting offense if everyone is healthy. I see a healthy Gardner stealing 50 bases, Suzuki and Granderson half that each, Nunez at least half that even if he doesn’t play every day (15-20 if he’s more part-time than full), and even Jeter 15. Granderson would be the only one among the four who won’t bunt although I could see him laying down 3 to 5 bunts.

    Also the Opening Day roster is NOT the final roster and you can’t expect the very best starting nine and bench out of the gate ALL the time. The 2008 Yankees had Posada at C an Matsui at LF on Opening Day and look what happened to that team.

    All the hoo-hah about “no C, DH, or RH hitter” means NOTHING if Sabathia breaks his knee slipping in the shower on January 23 and is out for the season or Jeter shows his age again and turns in another 2010 or worse, Teixiera is worse than he was last year, and Cano turns in his weakest season since 2008 from the pressure of a walk year.

    Now you can tell me the Yanks need top performances from as many players as possible more than ever but remember, the Rays have taken a big step back trading Shields and Wade, the Orioles did nothing this offseason out of arrogance, the Red Sox will not go from 69 wins to the bare minimum 89 wins they’ll need to win a wildcard slot (Dempster, Victorino Gomes, Hanrahan, and Ross are not twenty more wins, sorry), and the Blue Jays who have no bullpen have to be on paper good for them to have any chance at the division or a wildcard slot as they won only four more games than the Red Sox last year. The Yanks still have the better, most balanced team. I think the 2013 Yanks could win 95 to 100 games and another division title if not homefield advantage throughout the AL postseason, too, again with the talent they have and could acquire in June and/or July or whenever.

  45. Duh Innings II January 13th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    *Best team in the division.
