Attention Chowds...its On!!!

I predict you will get tired of seeing scenes such as this:

Is that A-Rod watching a ball go foul???? He's hot now but once he gets some pressure (like a weekend against the Sox) he'll crack.

No, that would be A-rod watching yet another walk off dinger.

da george sayeth:

The season is still very young, but up to now the results are clearly not acceptable to me or to Yankee fans. However, Brian Cashman our general manager, Joe Torre our manager and our players all believe that they will turn this around quickly. I believe in them. I am here to support them in any way to help them accomplish this turnaround. It is time to put excuses and talk away. It is time to see if people are ready to step up and accept their responsibilities. It is time for all of them to show me and the fans what they are made of. Let’s get going. Let’s go out and win and bring a world championship back to New York. That’s what I want.

sounds kinda like "you're fired" to me.

You're fired Joe?

OR

You're fired Brian?

If they fire Torre over the dismall pitching he has been provided that will be one of the worst decisions ever. If they fire Cashman it will be well deserved. He's a moron.

Irul... why does it seem that he only pop's up when the Yanks are doing well?

He never seems to have anything to say when the Sox put a beat down on the Bronx Bombers (a whole different sort of bombing goin' on right now) and there is no relief in sight. The Yankees are cellar dwellars, 6.5 games back with a sub-.400 win percentage. Ouch.

The scary thing for Yanks fans has got to be that there isn't any help on the horizon. The pitching is horrible and Mussina isn't going to be a huge help, Pavano sux so does Igawa, Damon's starting to show some serious wear, the bullpen is over worked and over matched by Boston/ Toronto/ Baltimore's line-ups. Even Tampa lit them up. Clemen's will probably end up back in pin stripes...but so what?

You guy's need help and you need it NOW. Too bad the wildcard has kept more teams competing for the post season longer, no one will be dumping players until the trade deadline. Cashman needs to be fired, this is his fault.

same ol', same ol'.

talked a lot of sacramento kings, too, before they...you know...ceased to exist?

not that there's anything wrong with that.

He can only post when his name is accurate.

When he (his team) doesn't rule.

And when we (Sox) don't blow.

no irul and no ublow. a true no no.

The latest is that the Yankees can't count on Rocket coming back and saving them. Due to their dismal start and all the other 'organizational problems' he's lost interest. If he comes back the odds are he'll play for the Red Sox. I hope the Yankee faithful feel bad about driving the Big Unit out of town....they could sure use him right now.
post #15 of 247
The Sox don't need Clemens. It would be kind of cool closure to his career, winning a ring with the 2007 Red Sox (I'm not saying that is going to happen, just that it would be cool), but the Sox have Lester tearing up the minors, he's ready to be back in the bigs, that is 5 quality starters and pushes Tavarez back to the middle relief role. There just isn't room in the Sox bullpen for a 40+ year old who wants to stay home every game he doesn't pitch and only wants to pitch 1/2 the season. He would really be a better fit for the Yank's, he'll be a hero there, riding in to save the season. In Boston he'll be an unneccissary (selfish) distraction.

Maybe the most intelligent thing ever said on this board.

I have no idea if the Yankees will figure out their pitching mess -- and yes, I'll put the blame on Cashman -- but Sox fans might want to think back to last season when they were in cruise control until mid-summer.

"That team right now is decimated. They've lost some very significant people. That's not going to be the same team the next time we see them. We have to take advantage of it now."

That's because you're not allowed to say ****, ****, ****, ****, ****!!!! in here, and that's about the only thing I can say at the moment.


I will point out to you chowds and other Yankee haters, that there are approx. 140 games left. Don't strain your shoulders patting yourselves on the back just yet.
post #19 of 247
i'm not arguing, and it's not a partisan thing to view the yankees as in trouble; they're in trouble no matter the point of view. not making excuses, either, but the sox had their turn to be decimated later in the year. every team deals with that at some point. these are both teams dissimilar from last year's versions. IMO, the sox are better than they were, the yankees are worse and will have to make a move.

but who'll go? cano seems untouchable, probably going to third when a-rod moves on. abreu or even matsui would be attractive for a team that can spare an arm, but nobody gives up pitching, even if only prospects, for nothing; and the yankees need more than a prospect. i'd think a bat will be moved for an arm; yankees have plenty of hitting but as the sox showed last year, absence of consistent pitching makes all the lumber in the yard moot.

will clemens warm to the idea of being the cowboy who rides in to save the day or is it a train wreck offering no chance for a post-season career finish? do the yankees have the relief to allow him to be a six-innings guy?

this is a yankees ship that won't right itself; the parts aren't there to do it, not right now.

the next two weeks, when the yankees see a lot of the mariners and rangers, two ostensibly inferior teams, will reveal a lot more about the state of the team. i'm not counting them out, it's ridiculously early, but here's to the boss keeping cashman around long enough to mortgage the future for now, again.

Don't look at me, I generally root for the other (white) sox. But I support our red brothers in their eternal fight against the over compensated and generally utterly obnoxious Yankees and their fans. It's nice to see them wallowing in the pits, unfortunately we all know that their payroll will kick in some time this season once they get their pin striped butts recovered from their off season hangover.

We can all agree that the Yankees blow, big time.

Seven batters from a no-hitter and the rookie hotshot pulls a hamstring... gone for four to six weeks.

I say: bring back Bubba Crosby and put him on the mound. Meanwhile, the Yankee chatboard has come to a consensus:

Yankees Fire Strength Coach

By Tyler Kepner

ARLINGTON, Texas – A day after the Yankees’ baffling run of hamstring injuries claimed another victim in Phil Hughes, the team fired its new strength coach. Marty Miller, who was hired last winter to the newly created position of director of performance enhancement, was let go on Wednesday, according to a Yankees official who was granted anonymity because the move has not been announced...

...Miller had not worked in baseball for 10 years before Cashman hired him last winter. His previous job was director of fitness at the Ballen Isles Country Club in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

The Yankees' grassroots organization in action. Fans discuss topics online, reach an agreement, and the front office acts.

doesn't quite explain that a-rod is still in pinstripes. i can still hear the resounding echoes of last year's chorus.

The yankees fans (on that posted yankees forum) seem even more delussional than the sox's fans. They honestly feel they have better starting pitching than the Red Sox's???

Based on WHAT? Have they watched any of the games this season?

I particularly like all the "...on paper, if our roster was healthy", that's nice. On paper bumble bee's can't fly. Why would anyone think Mussina, Petite and Pavano would be healthy? They are OLD. They are going to break down a few times this season. The Sox's have Schilling (old) and a bunch of young talented pitchers, there is a big difference between the two rotations and the differences a glaringly apparent right now.
A few yank's fans mentioned Wakefield being a mediocre pitcher who is playing above his ability...uhmm, yeah right, he's been doing this for 13 seasons now. Deal with it. Oh yeah, theres a lefty named john Lester who is slowly being prepared to return.

As for bullpens...no contest. Rivera is shot. Farnsworth, Vizciano, Myers...ughh.

Paplebon, Donnely, Okajima, Timlin (could be shot), Pinero and Romero. Not bad.

Our starters go deep into games, the bullpen is actually not seeing enough use. A different problem than NY has, I like our 'problem'.

Hey Chowds. look who the Yanquis lost to last night. The horror. 15/10 Mariners. Nice defense Yanqs.

Could it be the ghost of Randy Johnson and Alex Rodriguez ? Wait ,they're not dead yet .
