        hahahah there you are.

  • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

    In order of preference, my list is:

    1. River Avenue Blues
    2. Replacement Level Yankees Weblog
    3. NoMaas
    4. LoHud
    5. NYY Fans (this was not listed in the survey, however)

  • Mike Pop

    RAB !! , Nomaas! and RAB!!!!

  • http://www.stilettosetsports.com Mike

    So weird, I was just wondering what, if any other blogs to check out. It seems like there’s a lot that are inactive, etc.

  • nick blasioli

    no.l…..river ave blues..the best…..
    no. 2..mlb trade rumors

    this is everyday five or six times a day….

    • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

      same. Those are my 2 sites that I constantly go to.

    • http://26ncounting.blogspot.com VO

      i secodn tht, or third it in this case

    • Joey H

      Fourth.

    • zzzzz

      ditto.

  • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

    For me, I mainly go here but during the season I’ll go to Lohud for Lineups since he gets them first, and I will also go to Chad Jennings’ and Mike Ashmore’s minor league blogs. And of course, NoMaas just for giggles.

    • Jake H

      I agree. I hit the same blogs for the same reasons.

  • Joey H

    RAB is the only place you can get a decent and civilized argument going. I’ve learned plenty about stats and what have you from just being here. As well as the minors. I really didn’t know too much aside from the big guys in the farm. But coming here really opened my eyes to a greater, larger Yankee world.

  • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

    We have a game. Turner could have crawled in for a TD.

  • Ivan

    RAB
    Bronx Banter
    Replacement Level Yankees Weblog
    NoMaas
    Lohud

  • Yankee1010

    Oh, the irony of Steve Lombardi asking this question. Steve, most definitely not yours. I prefer a modicum of logic.

    • UWS

      I laughed when he commented that a bunch of people didn’t say they read HIS blog when voting on the survey.

      • The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

        Yeah that was pretty typical of him, pretty funny. “Buh… Buh… But I created the survey. 100% of the respondents should identify as waswatching.com readers!”

        • E

          Steve has a point.

          • The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

            Eh… I found the poll through RAB, and I bet a lot of people found it through other sites as well. I check out waswatching once in a while, usually when I’m bored and just want something else to read after I’ve exhausted my usual sites, but I’d hardly call myself a waswatching reader. I think one could reasonably stop by waswatching, see that poll, and not note in the survey that they read waswatching.

            Whatever, I just found it funny that he’d post a poll and then after a few responses come in be like “I should get 100% of the responses, no fair.”

    MERRY NEW YEAR!!!! A-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!!

    Hope all had a joyous holidays. I sure did.

    I read RAB. I do not read any other Yankee blogs, as they all suck. I only have so much time in the day and space in the brain, I don’t waste either on inferior products.

    • Joey H

      Lol. Tommie. Check out the thread about defense. It was probably the one before this one. I think it was centerfield defense and pitching. Read what was going on with LoHud.

      • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        Very interesting. As always, here at RAB, we post pretty much for the intelligent fans.

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRhu9jUal2Q&feature=related Joey H

          Yeah. It was pretty nuts, going back and forth at 2 in the morning. Actually it was pretty pathetic.

    • The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

      Oh, they’ve been clamoring for a little TSJC-love around here. (Check out the posts from last night.) You’re such a popular boy!

      Happy New Year ;-)

    • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

      hessss BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK. Some of your fans missed you TSJC.

      • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        Yeah, I went to Florida for 10 days, tried to stay off the grid as much as possible. I missed RAB, but the beach is an awesome substitute…

        Anybody else do anything fun for the holidays?

        • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

          niceeeeee.I’ve been doing absolutely nothing and loving it. School starts on monday though.

      • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

        I didn’t even notice he was gone.

        (OMG I thought you were never going to come back11!1!!!)

            Oh, when does my awesome RAB Fantasy Football League Championship Trophy arrive in the mail?

            • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

              WHY THE FUCK IS MY BURRITO TAKING SO LONG TO COOK IN THIS MICROWAVE!!!11!1!1!!11

              • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

                Touché.

                In my defense, that was my first request, and I did wait a whole 10 minutes from being back on the board to make the request.

                Seriously, though, whether it’s a trophy or a plaque, it’s all good. Just make sure it says “RAB Fantasy Football League Champion and Sexiest Man Alive” and has likenesses of both Deion Sanders and Drew Henson on it.

                • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

                  I will photoshop a plaque later if you really want one…

                • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

                  Just make sure it says “RAB Fantasy Football League Champion and Sexiest Man Alive” and has likenesses of both Deion Sanders and Drew Henson on it.

    • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

      oh yeah, so basically Joey said that both Lohud and RAB are great blogs and Lohud zombies took it personal and translated it into “Lohud sucks”, then Pete made a bet with him that Lohud is better and Pete got pretty unprofessional. And this was at 2am.

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRhu9jUal2Q&feature=related Joey H

        Manimal how many times do I have to say this… They aren’t “Lohud Zombies” they are PeteAbe’s sheep!!1!!!!1! :)

        • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

          eh same thing

      • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        I’ve actually only been on LoHud like 8 seconds of my life. I never investigated it to determine if it’s a good blog or a bad blog. I just stumbled onto RAB reading a prospect profile one day and stayed around and never looked elsewhere for anything better… I get all I need from Mike, Ben, Joe, and the RAB regulars.

        Based only on what I hear from you guys (that the LoHuddites are moronic troglodytes), it seems to me that PeteAbe’s problem is that he doesn’t police his commenters enough to challenge their sanity when they make stupid comments. I’ve seen the RAB Big Three call out many a commenter for their B-Jobberish (including myself), and it’s always deserved. A good blog relies first on good original content and secondly on good conversation. Maybe PeteAbe needs to focus more on staying in the convo and refocusing it towards clear analysis?

        Just an uninformed guess…

        • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

          haha 8 seconds. I had to google what troglodytes were to fully understand your post, but yes, Pete lets them run rampant

          • E

            Why would Pete care? The more hits the better. Remember he works for an actual paper

  • http://poormansanalyst.wordpress.com/ dan

    Haha, this was funny….

    I left a comment on this post (I never comment there, this was the first one in months) just saying the name of my blog, and he deleted it. I got an email a little while later saying this:

    Dan – you rip me at your blog and then you try and use a comment at my blog to try and promote your blog?
    Really?

    That’s not happening.

    I wrote a post about him and Phil Hughes about a month ago, apparently he’s still upset about it–enough to purposely exclude me from his survey. My post is below, if anyone’s wondering:

      haha, What a cry baby.

    See, this poll is doomed from the jump. A poll at WasWatching is going to receive a lot of votes from the sort of person who reads WasWatching. I’m not sure that’s a contest you want to win.

  • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

    Lets start some “How I got here” stuff.

    I basically got here during the Johan Sweepstakes. I was constantly reading MLBTR when Joe was guest writing while Tim was out. I clicked a link and found my way here, haven’t left since.

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      You know, I don’t even remember which prospect profile it was that got me here. Might have been last year’s top 30 list, back when Alan Horne and Jeffrey Marquez were the big-pimpin surefire stars of the future…

    • http://26ncounting.blogspot.com VO

      i got here when i was reading MLBTR as well i read a lot about how “according to river ave blues” or “river ave blues thinks” at the time i was looking for a good yankees website and then i decided wth i got nothing to lose so i clikced on the link came over here and here i am. although it took me about 3-5 months to actualy make a comment, damn u guys are intimidating

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t10twK4BZoc Kevin G.

      I got here when I was really pissed by how bad the Yankees were doing last year so I wanted to see what people thought about the season and if they thought they would get better. So I googled “the yankees suck this year’ and a post by RAB called “Yankees Suck” appeared, I went on RAB, and I haven’t left since.

  • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

    Oh man, I am really spot on with this game from my prediction, check out my blog I had the final score at Arizona 35- Atlanta 27

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Dude, you have a blog too?!?!?!?

        INTERROBANGING IS TEH BESTEST!!?!?!?1/1/?!?!?!??!?!!??!??11?!!!?!??!one!!!!!!!???!!!exclamation!point11

    If I had a time machine, after going back in time to stop Francis Ford Coppola from making The Godfather III, I would go back to last April to have the Jets draft Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie instead of Vernon Gholston.

    • Andy In Sunny Daytona

      What a coincidence that you and UWS both show up after missing for days!
      HHHHHMMMMMMMM???

      By the way, you missed Melmas.

      • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        Daytona was sunny.

        And I never touched UWS, I swear. She said she was 18.

        I celebrated Melmas. We did the Feats of Strength and everything. (Every great holiday is just a borrowed tradition from a prior pagan festival.)

        • UWS

          I’m highly disturbed by the fact that people here keep tabs on the timing of my posts.

          • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

            Ummm…. you have juggs. This makes you special.

    • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

      I would tell Cashman not to sign Pavano.

  • http://asportsaddictneedsdivineintervention.blogspot.com/ E-ROC

    RAB all the way!

  • E

    After reading the blogs that Pete has put up on the site the RAB boys have so far embarrassed them all. The other ones have been unreadable n I don’t see it changing.

    • inman

    3. Lohud – Best of the beat writers’ blogs, yet 3/4 of the commentors are idiots.
    4. Prid of the Yankees – Dave and Aziz rocked. Will miss them!
