    “The dodgers are “way better” than the Yankees? On what planet?”

    this one…..they have been the best team in baseball (or one of them for awhile now). Lets put it this way…..if they aren’t way better now then their future certainly looks way brighter given their roster make up.

    They have arguably the best pitcher in baseball who is like 25 years old…..they have one of the most dynamic young players in baseball in Puig controlled for peanuts. They have a very good 1B in Agon…..a star who hasn’t even been able to play all year in Kemp…..a great #2 starter in Greinke…..and an ownership that is committed to them winning.

    The Dodgers are a WS contender…..the Yankees are a .500 team who is very lucky to have a chance at the WC right now……I don’t like that that’s the truth but it is.

    Only a die-hard Yankee fan would claim the Yanks are better than the Dodgers right now, or that the Yanks look better going forward than the Dodgers.

    arod from the upcoming issue of SI:
    “I have two daughters at home, and I’m sensitive to that, and above all, I want to be a role model, continue to be a role model — especially to my girls. So all the noise sometimes gets on my nerves, but that’s it. I can’t let it get any further than that. I have a job to do.”

    the guy is delusional.

    Maybe he can run for Mayor of NYC. That would qualify him.

    RayVt. Ray please explain how “the Yankees will be dominant” with the same cap for everyone?

    Perhaps you like revenue sharing better?

    A socialist idea with Commissars Loria and others laughing all the way to the bank, screwing the fans in Miami and the taxpayers?
    ****************************************************************************
    I don’t know where you got that idea about me. I am truly on the side that the Yanks are screwing themselves & their fans by being cheap & short-sited. I don’t see how a $2B-$3B value (with $1B in annual revenue to boot) organization can risk 40% to 60% of that value for dollars in the millions. I am not a Cash or Joe G lover either.

    That said, I supported Stick, C Boyer, Mel Stottlemyre, Torre, Buck & Mattingly. MLB Contract expenses are a minor piece of the NYY revenue.

    George had everything set to leave the NYY in good hands & his son-in-law screwed the pooch & we are left with Curly, Mo & Larry.

    The Yankees have added a promising five-tool talent to their prospect pipeline, signing 16-year-old Dominican outfielder Leonardo Molina to a deal that includes a $1.4 million bonus.

    Molina, who was unable to sign with a Major League organization until he celebrated his 16th birthday on Thursday, is ranked fifth on MLB.com’s list of international prospects.

    The 6-foot-2, 170-pound Molina bats right-handed and throws right-handed. He has impressed scouts with his defense, running ability and arm strength, leading some to believe that he projects as an above-average center fielder in the future.

    Molina was a top prospect in the Dominican Prospect League and has been discussed as arguably the best athlete in this year’s class.

    The signing puts the Yankees over their allotted bonus pool by 4.9 percent ($1,970,000 to $1,877,900), which means they will pay a 75 percent tax on the overage. That amounts to $69,075.

    MG July 31st, 2013 at 11:08 pm: Granderson returns on Friday, when he does the Yankees have extra outfielders, in particular Soriano, who can DH most games.
    Third base is a black hole for them offensively, their 3rd baseman have hit less HR’s than the Cubs pitchers this year (according to Vin Scully).
    It does them no good for Jeter to mostly DH, it just keeps a hitter with power out of the lineup and we know how much you like lineups with home run potential.

    MG: Based on my experience of taking advantage of “The House That Ruth Built,” I definitely like bats with the home run potential, and for that reason, you are right that Granderson should play every day. Since playing third would ruin Nunez at short, how about Jeter moving to third and let Nix remain in the utility role.

    Why do the Yankees play “Where’s Waldo” with guys playing in simulated games? First Derek last week and again with Alex today.

    Oh the irony – when Texas calls up Manny after Cruz is suspended

    best Lohud chat question….ever:

    Comment From ARod
    I’m thinking of taking a sabbatical from work. Any thoughts on how to spend my time? Any book recommendations?

  15. bruceb August 1st, 2013 at 3:52 pm

    There you go, Mick. Satisfied with Chad’s answer or shall we do another poll?

    Just kidding :)

  16. J. Alfred Prufrock August 1st, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    The real question is, how are the Yankees going to crop Alex out of the 2009 highlights on the jumbotron at the Stadium?

    Just show 2000 and prior?

    Hank, for that answer look back to 1951, did Joe D move from CF so Mickey Mantle could take his place?

    It’s the same with Jete and anyone else-next year, maybe, with a full spring training to prepare.

    Now, in the middle of a pennant race with no preparation, no chance, sorry…

    And Nunez had played 3rd base for the Yankees, he’s started 50 games for them over the past few years.

    I think he might be a better 3rd baseman than SS because he seems to have less trouble with bang bang plays than routine ones anyway.

    J Alfred, we can always show the Matsui game and nothing else. :p

    Pirates Release Brandon Inge

    The Pirates have released Brandon Inge.

    Inge, 36, was designated for assignment by the Bucs on July 23 after hitting .181/.204/.238 in 110 plate appearances.

    The longtime Tiger has scarcely stayed north of the Mendoza Line over the past three seasons, hitting .204/.261/.321 in his time with Detroit, Oakland and Pittsburgh.

    However, his defense has remained strong, according to Ultimate Zone Rating.

    He’s spent time at second base, third base and right field recently, and he even played an inning at shortstop for the Pirates this season.
    ===================================

    .204 obp

    .167 RISP

    …..mmmmmmmmmmmm Maybe not.

    The New York Yankees likely will not acquire Michael Young in a waiver deal with the Philadelphia Phillies, according to a source with knowledge of the conversations between the teams on Wednesday afternoon……….

    According to the source, Cashman offered several names in exchange for Young to Amaro, who replied that the veteran third baseman is “my best bat, and I don’t want to move him.”

    “They were never really close,” the source told ESPNNewYork.com. “It almost seemed like [Young] really wasn’t in play.”
    ……….

    If the Phillies continue to sink, Amaro may want to rethink that. I doubt they make him a QO, so no draft pick compensation, and if he accepts, they gotta pay him about 14 mill next year

  23. Nick in SF August 1st, 2013 at 4:45 pm

    Chad cut off the chat just as I was about to get to some serious questions. :sad:

  24. DONNYBROOK August 1st, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    The problem is Not Amaro, the problem is that Cashman covets and therefore Overvalues his bush leaguers. The Yankees need new eyes to appraise their young players, and a new voice to communicate with other GM’s. Cashman is outta step. He is negotiating like this is 1985. Today, Every team is loaded with cash, can re-sign their own players if they want, or buy players on the free agent market. Bush Leaguers do Not carry the value they did back when Cashman was fetching coffee for The Boss. Cashman is a dinosaur.
