One more thread to bring this one home.
really joe? you’re gonna burn hughes in a 9-5 game but you can’t use him in a tight game where you’re down by a run or 2?
At this point of the season you get this win. You can rest him once we’ve locked up the AL East. Two wins against Boston and it’s pretty much a lock.
That’s y he’s clueless
“burn” him for what? win tonight and there’s nothing left.
If that was Jeter flipping the ball to Cano they turn the DP. And that’s not a knock at Jeter, it’s just how good Cano is at turning the DP.
I can’t believe Ortiz beat it out. And it wasn’t even close.
Stupid Albe… now Philly has to pitch. I doubt he’ll be available tomorrow afternoon.
He doesn’t have to pitch. We’re up 4 runs.
eh, who else do you want facing Bay with a man on? Coke is the only other option not including Mel, Dunn, towers…
So what are the chances that Albaladejo is released or nontendered (what the hell does this even mean) this offseason?
I doubt it. He’s got an option let. He’ll be making close to the league minimum, might as well keep him around and stash him in AAA.
Albie may not be a good reliever, but he’s far from a bad one.
He might not have an option left, depending on when Washington added him to their 40-man roster.
where the fuck was hughes on monday when the yanks were down 3-1 in the 6th inning against the angels?
joe, why so damn inconsistent?
When the mop up guys can’t get it done in a blowout…
why not use bruney? (I cant believe i just said that)
Soap. Your mouth.
Please, anyone but Bruney.
This team needs a Rafael Soriano type for next season. Seriously. Aceves can’t be the ONLY reliable RHP coming out the ‘pen. Robertson is good , but Joe G. doesnt use him enough. Albie and Melancon aren’t shut down.
Why not Soriano himself? He’s an FA
Well, he’ll be a Type A, so we’d have to give up the 30th pick in the draft to get him.
I’m not saying that should necessarily stop us, but it’s something to consider.
i wasn’t so sure. But if he’s an unrestricted FA , then he’s likely the best Righty hitting the market. Gotta get more ‘pen depth. Hughes isn’t going to be there next season getting that last out in the 8th…
But if he’s an unrestricted FA , then he’s likely the best Righty hitting the market.
A) Not sure what an “unrestricted” FA is. This isn’t football.
B) He would cost a first rounder with Elias compensation, because he’s a Type A. Maybe that’s what you were getting at?
C) He’s the SECOND best righty on the market.
Valverde >>>>>>>>>> Soriano
I’m assuming Valverde’s also a Type A, correct?
I was thinking beyond Arbitration years. Soriano is 30/31 yrs old, so i assumed he was just going to be a regular FA. All i know is that the buzz coming out of Atlanta : Keep Tim Hudson, Keep Vazquez, Trade Jurrgens for hitters, let Soriano walk.
Well, when you’re in arbitration years, you’re not a FA. You’re still under team control.
doesnt Soriano has a bad history of elbow issues
and im sure he’ll want to close and he’ll get a deal from washington or someone
You can’t say Melancon isn’t shut down. He hasn’t had a real chance yet. And I wouldn’t exactly call Soriano reliable. He’s given up like 5 HR’s in his past 8 outings over there in AAAA.
Dotel wants to pitch here, why not if he comes cheap
He’s like 40 years old. He’s been here before too. Wasnt good then..
he was injured when he was here iirc.
plus he’ll be a type A but the white sox would be stupid to offer him arb so he’ll come without costing a draft pick
So heres my jackass move of the day:
Eating a pretzel on a bench in Central Park, I gave a piece of it to a pigeon. Then another pigeon came. The next was even bigger. The more pretzel I gave, the more the big pigeons attacked and pecked the small ones. In the end, there was nothing but dead pigeons and salt on the floor, and I’ve been traumatized for life. Couldn’t be my fault right? I’ll keep my pretzels to myself now.
Never feed those monsters anything. EVER. I’m surprised some hipster vegan NYU student didn’t call you a murdering terrorist Nazi and then go thrifting.
Well maybe they did under their breath. Big bullies.
And seriously, by weight, I’d bet I’ve had more pussy than you. By weight.
Are we going by average, or total aggregate? I think you win on mean, median, and mode, but if we’re just adding all of them together, I’m sure I’ve got you.
I may not hit fat chicks, but lots of skinny girls add up quick.
But how many skinny chicks = the Michelin (wo)Man?
Meh, what’s the most he could be? 275, at most?
Three girls > One Tire Salesman
Yeah, I got him.
Funny use of statistics. “But numbers don’t Lie”.
We agree then. Although, I recently ended up bagging some skinny girl from Andrew’s Coffee Shop (aspiring actress, waitress. So cliche), so I’m gaining on you.

Nice to see you’re on the road back to respectability.
I know EXACTLY what you’re talking about. I went to NYU. Tisch School of the Arts is there. ‘Nuff said.
That means you had no competition for the attentions of all ladies. Not totally fair, but the math fell definitely in your favor. Does Tisch have any grad pgms?
Yes, it does. But you don’t have to GO to Tisch, you just have to hang around Tisch.
damn bye bye bay
i love the pornstache
Nice one, Kay.
“Schwashwwwaschwaswing and miss, strike three!”
I thought Bob Uecker and Mel Allen were the only guys that drank in the booth.
Relievers must be the new long ball.
Dug by both sexes, all ages, races, religions, and classes. But can they bring about world peace?
New ESPN headline: RS rally falls short. Maintain dominant lead in WC race.
I can hear Peter Gammons typewriter in the distance.
hows that tyler clippard for albaladejo deal looking right about now?
btw never in a millions would have i thought i would say this
Dude, Clippard is pitching meaningless innings in AAAA East from a 100 loss team. Albie is pitching in the best division in baseball. I don’t think that even warrants a comparison.
Eh, I’m still good with it.
T-Clip is doing what he’s doing in the sissy-boy league.
It’s looking fine. 100% fine.
Clippard: 3.18 era in NL east = 6.22 era in AL east
And this team is the best team in baseball, could you manage one positive comment? You bring up the most meaningless trade ever, why not bring up the Swisher trade?
lol it wasn’t meant as a hating comment. Just how some swaps turn out
clippard was utter garbage here and he’s been pretty great for the nats
Wasn’t it A Gone for Albie?
Clippard for Albie
A Gone for Nunez (I think)
Dealing with 4 future HOFers you would think I would have known that.
Hughes is getting a little of the “I can’t believe they’re bringing me into THIS game” look that Mariano gets sometimes.
any comparison to mo is good.
I don’t know if I will miss Hughes in the bullpen next year. He really turned this team around with a bp role. I will love it when he finally starts, but how will the bullpen shape up next year?
d-rob and melancon will have to step up.
Tyler clippard is having a nice season in relief for the nats against the NL, let’s not go nuts.
Wang as a reliever next year if he comes in?
I don’t know. Generally you don’t want someone who generates so many balls in play as a reliever. That’s why guys like Hughes who get so many swings and misses make great relievers.
Relievers have to come into men-on-base situations. I want relievers to miss bats, not pitch to contact, even if it’s weakly hit contact.
Was that Phil Hughes or Ron Jeremy?? Are we donning Porn staches for the playoffs??
You know you have a good night when they cant even fit your other things you’ve done in the night. (They couldnt add Alex’s 2 walks and 3 SBs)
haha yeah that was fun to see
No one is keeping score at home Michael
Is Dusty Brown playing second? That’s awesome.
He’s a catcher.
Ah ok, YES screwed the defense graphic up.
In the last thread someone mentioned that they hoped Pujols was ok. What’s the deal?
I checked the ESPN boxscore, where they usually have any injuries under game notes, and I saw nothing…so I have no clue.
They speculated his achilles on the TV.
I’m watching on TBS and they showed a highlight of Pujols hobbling the last few feet to first base and being checked out by the trainer.
holy bunch of pitchers batting for the red sox batman!
Thank Mo we don’t need to trade Joba after his performance today!
Is this America or the Ukrane?
The Ukraine is a democracy.
It’s the internet.
Maybe we can see Nick Green pitch again.
Hedi Watney won’t have it.
I guess you have to pay attention to her.
What a hack of a journalist. TAKE YOUR CRAFT SERIOUSLY, YOU TROLLOP!
Would Helen Thomas ever wear boots like that? I think not.
Helen Thomas once was in a love triangle with Honus Wagner and Connie Mack.
Get out …
Really Yo, I was no Halladay now I’m blocked, is there free speech or not in America?
I want Guzman to steal home.
YES should not show that play
In theory, you could call all steals against the Sawx this season “defensive indifference”, for the mere fact that they are starting Varitek.
Michael Kay did u really have to show that we no what happen.
Swish is having a terrible night at the dish.
I don’t care what people say. I enjoyed Harold and Kumar: Escape from Guantanamo bay. Even though it was horrible.
i enjoyed it to.
Loved that bottomless party. “Hey put that top back on!!”
I loved the first one, but no. That movie was a traveshamockery. They put a stamp on that one and mailed it in.
Yea the first one was the best i thought part 2 was gonna be the shyt but i still enjoyed it.
If this is now the USSR or the USA then just let me know so I can go ahead and move to Cuba.
hmmm you’re mistaken as to what freedom of speech means. Unless RAB is the sports czar in the obama administration, this has nothing to do with freedom of speech
The RAB guys aren’t commies, they’re socialists!
Or do you mean fascists?
Who are the real fascists, the ones that don’t allow free speech on a public forum?
What the hell is this guy babbling about? Am I the only one totally lost here?
You’re not alone.
im in the same boat, then gain i stopped reading after his first 2 posts. just ignore him, he just wants attentions like axl, alex gonzelz, etc
I’m with you. Apparently he’s been censored. And is fairly cheesed off about it.
I’m guessing he got drunk and stumbled into the wrong website.
This isn’t a public forum. It’s a privately owned website.
USSR doesn’t exist anymore, so it can’t be that.
Neither does the USA
Your plane tickets are waiting for you at JFK. Have a nice trip.
Put your money where your mouth is, pay up loser
Swish has been terrible tonight.
That “mac snack wrap” ad makes me nauseous. The square processed meat and cheese sauce really screws me up.
Cuba has free health care, so does Canada, so does England, so does France. We have the Yanks and Cuervo, whopeee!
and we have idiots that talk political rhetoric in Yankee forums. So I guess it balances out.
But Doug Christie looks scary to me.
God forbid we talk about something that means something. Who;s the real idiot?
I assume this is Michael Moore researching his new Pedroia-centric Sawx documentary, The Hobbit.
Chris Woodward? ..WTF?? he’s still in the league?
The Sox claimed him off waivers from the Mariners awhile ago.
U know OMar vizquel is still around?
and i cant believe Chris Woodward like 33
that order to face looks as daunting as a wet rag
Varitek=Pizza behind the plate. Lets Run all weekend!
How many toppings?
That’s insulting to Mike Piazza. He was WAY better defensively than Varitek.
The First Amendment to the Constitution states that I have the right to free speech. Yet some geek with a keyboard gets to decide what’s acceptable and what’s not ok. That’s not American.
Dude, calm down. If you don’t want to talk baseball take it somewhere else.
I have been talking baseball and somehow I got blocked that’s fascist if anything is
Where’s the mute button on this guy?
You don’t know what fascism is.
Era is to Alex Gonzalez as Facist is to ?????
You forgot to mention his mom’s basement. Very important, or else we won’t take you seriously.
Then go to LoHud.
Somebody snuck into the liquor cabinet tonight?
Tell your boss he’s a dickhead, see how that works out for you, Mr. Free Speech.
again, RAB is not the government, and hence there’s not free speech issue.
Actually yes it is, unless RAB is somehow out of the jurisdiction of the federal courts.
You have no idea what you’re talking about. The GOVERNMENT cannot curtail your speech. Private citizens most definitely can, on their own sites.
The Germans bombed Pearl Harbor!
The government grants the rights of the individual to own a websit and therefore the individual cannot change or infringe on what the government rules or laws are. Otherwise I can own a Fascist website that argues that the governememt should be overthrown. Then I could advocate and block those that disagree, name one that does THAT>
The government grants the rights of the individual to own a websit and therefore the individual cannot change or infringe on what the government rules or laws are.
No. You can’t break the law on a privately owned website, but curtailing speech is not breaking the law because the SCOTUS has delineated a distinction between the direct suppression of speech by the government and the suppression of speech by private individuals. It doesn’t work the way you describe it. Wrong.
Otherwise I can own a Fascist website that argues that the governememt should be overthrown.
Then I could advocate and block those that disagree, name one that does THAT
GANARON LOS YANQUIS!!!!
Stop wasting our time. Go Away.
I know Kung-Fu.
The First Amendment to the Constitution states that I have the right to free speech.
No, that’s not true.
Thank you for stating that, Jack.
I give because I love.
Jack is an idiot because he’s a n idiot, great logic
hmm, I wonder why you were banned…
I’m raising the Terriost Threat Level Advisory to Red.
Wrong? THe Fed have jusrisdiction over Evrything within the juris of the federal gov, and that means this shithead website
Moot. NO CRIME IS BEING COMMITTED.
RAB isn’t a government entity. You don’t have First Amendment protections via commenting on a privately-owned website.
Wow claimed off the Mariner waiver wire?…talk about desperate. I’m sure NESPN called it a blockbuster move though.
Haha. Considering how desperate they were at short.
Alby off the 40 man. Ramirez too
maybe the Sox will go after Vizquel next. Another brilliant move by Theo Einstein!…since Smoltz and Penny worked out so well!
WALKING ROCCO BALDELLI???!!???
Rocco Baldelli = Final Lottery Ticket.
What does the C on Varitek’s jersey mean? caught stealing? cant throw? Cant hit?
Just means “can’t”.
No, See You Next Wednesday.
I had to google that, learn something new every day.
The relief today (with the exception of Hughes and Aceves) has been br00tal
you could have just said alby was brutal, cause he was the only one
And neither one of those guys were Dice-(wal)k
Who else is thrilled that Tek played the whole game and Lowell is sitting his ass on the bench?
thats because theres a rift in the Boston clubhouse. Beckett and Lester only want to throw to Tek, OMG THEY’RE DOOMED!!
This game was never in doubt. Great win. Keep the numbers dropping.
What a DP!!!! give that man a gold glove right NOW!!!! ROBBIE!
GET THE BABE RUTH PHOTO READY
That was DEEEEEE-Liteful !!!
Cano too lazy to take the ball out of his glove.
Damn, beat me to it.
Great win. Totally unexpected. I figured the Yanks would lose this one and win the next two. Maybe a sweep is possible.
beautiful turn. stellar game. 3
Cano is filthy.
That’s what I came in this thread to say.
Hmmm…who will they pick for the #3 photo? Tough call.
Wow. This was an uncharacteristically short game for Red Sox and Yankees. Just a little under four hours.
Magic Number = 3
Can I admit to being a little bummed we never saw a Gehrig photo?
I miss Lou Gehrig.
We need a special embedded image of the Iron Horse since he got skipped over.
Great minds thinking alike again, TSJC
How about they post 2130 which can signify the magic # for 2022?
There’s no number, but this is a favorite of mine: http://repairstemcell.files.wo.....gehrig.jpg
Just use MS Paint and write a 3.
Robbie Cano, WERE YOU NOT AWARE?
Lost in the shuffle tonight will be how we pounded Lester (not literally).
I can’t decide whether to watch the NESN or YES postgame show. hmmmmm . . . watch the pain and excuses for Boston or the confidence and joy in the Yankee Clubhouse.
When I lived in Boston, I loved watching NESN postgame shows after the Yanks beat Boston. Schadenfreude!
+27 – I lived there for 19 years – I feel what you are saying.
Ditto…. was there for grad school+
We beat Lester – and Willie Tyler:
So I guess Joba doesn’t suck, and the Joba rules don’t look so stupid anymore
Oh and this ARod isn’t so bad
I just watched Javy Vazquez 3-hit the Nationals – complete game too. Nationals are a special kind of suck (the 100-game variety)
Really? A near dead Babe Ruth?
Meh, Babe Ruth was near dead most of his life.
Go ahead and allow the government to continue to own the means of production, dictate your debt, make you dependent, even control speech on a supposedly freely owned website. You are idiots to allow yourselves to be fooled into complacency and dependency. Go to work on Monday to your “careers” while your homes are worth nothing, you have nothing saved, and those that own you profit. If you get sick, who cares, you are replaceable, a part only nothing more. You are a piece int he game and nothing more. You are happy with that? Then be happy but know that you are just a dog!
I wonder if they sell Yankee caps made of tinfoil.
Mike – Ban this guy.
Yes, why not ban someone that actually contributes to real thought and not just ass kising about how the Yanks are the greatest
Maybe I missed your initial comments that were full of real thought.
All your comments on this portion of the gamethread have been batshit insane. I’ve never seen someone talk so much about governmental theory and practice and be so consistently wrong about everything.
Really, then tell me how it is, how everything is so right?
Mike checking the i.p. address….”It’s coming from my own house!!!!” dun-DUN-DUNNN
scanner darkly territory.
Bob the part has something t0o say, think the corporations care?
How much is Bob worth, how much can Bob produce? how much can Bob make me? That’s all they give a crap about, you’re a zeroe, a ZERO!
You think you’ve merely stopped a business deal. That is not the case. The Arabs have taken billions of dollars out of this country, and now they must put it back! It is ebb and flow, tidal gravity! It is ecological balance!
Wow…. the only thing better than the philosophy espoused is the spelling here.
It’s Mondo Bizarro Glenn Beck
You have meddled with the primal forces of nature
That’s unintelligible gibberish.
This is a baseball site. It is not a socio-economic debate site. I come here to chat about baseball. I care, as you apparently do, about freedom of speech and many other societal, civil, legal and economic issues but don’t want to hear about them here. This is not the place for that.
I will now just ignnore you. Good Bye.
And, frankly, we wouldn’t even mind a good socio-economic debate, if you showed a grasp of sociology or economics.
You’ve shown a shocking amount of ignorance on both counts, so perhaps you should keep your mouth shut, ????.
TSJC – That reply was to me. I presume, and hope, that your comment was directed at the ???? Joker and not me.
I believe he was replying to you so as to expound upon your point.
That’s what I thought. It’s moot. He’s gone.
I was adding onto your point with the rejoinder that it’s not the off-topicness of the conversation as much as the fact that the content of the conversation is clinically insane that makes our friend ?????’s actions ban-worthy. We’re all willing to extend some latitude for reasonable non-baseball-centric conversation from time to time, but you can’t have a conversation with a shouting lunatic who speaks in inaccurate hyperbole.
You’re good money, Bob. Told you that already.
Thanks – Same back.
I dunno…Bob here has always struck me as shockingly ignorant.
One out of two ain’t bad.
Dude, your youtube video was messed up:
WAKE UP SHEEPLE!!!!!
That’s right bro, right!
I’m not agreeing with you. I’m mocking you for being an alarmist dumbass.
TSJC, now would be a really good time to look under your mattress.
That’s why I like you, Greg: You’re an idea man.
Problem -> Solution
What if “cat” spelled “dog”?
A bit late but….WIN!!!!
Hm, apparently the out-of-market blackout for YES on FIOS applies to postgame too? Dang.
They started the postgame a few minutes late. Try again. I’m getting it on Comcast.
Hm, but not in HD for me. Weird. I’ll stick with MLBN. Harold Reynolds is giving Cano some love.
Arreola-Klitschko tomorrow, big heavyweight title bout, make sure to check it out.
Take the Arreola moneyline. It will be worth it.
I’d watch, but the outcome has been predetermined.
It’s ALL controlled by the government!!!
yankees win baby
Sorry about that gents. Our friend has been banished to the most fascist regions of TEH BANHAMMAH!!!
Great, now go find a healthier picture of The Babe.
Uh oh. I’m sure the FBI will be at your door in minutes.
YOUR UNDER THEIR JURISDICITON!!!!!!1!!!
Something like this?
Thank you . . . you fascist . . . LOL.
I’m pretty sure that was Axlevelli, actually.
I’m not surprised.
I was afraid you were going to say that.
That kid needs help. Seriously.
It wasn’t him.
Hmmm… Return offender, or a new one?
I believe he said he was No Halladay at some point in his mindless gibberish.
My favorite part of the rant is when he thought I was on his side for a second.
“Finally, the Decepticons have been defeated.”
GEEKY KID IN WHEELCHAIR

A little off topic here:
ESPN, as most of you probably now, has designed web sites specific to cities. The first was Chicago, the next to come was Boston.
I just saw an ad for ESPN Dallas.
There’s an ESPN Dallas before there is an ESPN New York?
Someone gsve a very good explanation here on this blog as to why NY and LA weren’t first. I forget the reason but if you really want to know, I’m sure you could search out the answer on this site or maybe someone will provide the link.
The reason was basically “The Boston web media market is collapsing and this is prime time to pounce”.
But it’s still BS. Even if you had a prime opportunity to roll out in Boston, and even if you somehow had similar golden opportunities in Chicago and Dallas, there’s no reason to have NOT rolled out in NY and LA by now. Those markets are large enough that there’s no need to wait for a prime oppportunity; every day is a prime opportunity.
Actually, the whole ESPN.com/InsertCityHere thing doesn’t even bug me as much as the way the Worldwide Leader has been whoring themselves out to recording artists trying to push albums recently.
Like, is SportsCenter now called “The Black Eyed Peas and the Dave Matthews Band present SportsCenter?”
Why am I getting full musical interludes in and out of every commercial break? Why is Snoop Dogg co-hosting segments? What the hell kind of pimp-game is Sony BMI running here?
Or having the “Let’s Get Ready to Rumble” fight announcer on for promos. Ridiculous. Some of their promos are amusing like the Hip, Hip, Jorge ad.
Agreed. Those fascists.
SOYLENT GREEN IS PEOPLE!!!
I MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!
Bring on Roller Ball.
espn new york comes out in jan 2010
What a great win. I thought going into this game that it was far more important to get a decent to good outing from Joba than to get this win. To get both . . . the good outing and the win is a huge bonus.
Haha fooled you all.
You said the same thing about AG. You vicariously want to be these guys. Or, you’re just trying to get a rise out of us all.
Dammit Bob Stone. Nothing gets by you.
Not unless it’s faster than Matsui.
I’m not even sure I get it but I’m laughing anyway.
Et tu, Pussymangler?
It’s Pussypilot, thank you very much.
My sincerest apologies.
Now, stay on the line for five minutes while I eat this sub.
If the Yanks win the next couple of games… Steaks and blowjobs for everyone. (On Pawlikowski.)
Blowjobs on Pawlikowski? That doesn’t sound fun at all.
So long as it’s not from you guys, blowjobs on me sounds great.
That’s not what your mom said.
My mom’s in a coma.
Yeah? Well, I had sex with your… Ah f*ck, you’ve painted me into a corner. Next time, Jack. Next time.
It’s cool, The Dude abides.
I see yesmichaelkay is back.
My favorite of the night.
“Hey fans! I don’t want to take a stolen base away from A-Rod, but here’s two minutes of me saying why A-Rod shouldn’t have a stolen base.”
That was more like five minutes.
On NESN they just did a montage of all of the steals tonight to the song, “It keeps you running”. Great stuff
The Angels will be running all over the place.
I hope they don’t run too much. Iwant to see the Yanks beat the BoSox in the ALCS.
Just realized that tomorrow’s game is on FOX. Phooey.
Yes, but that allows for much, much more tailgating.
“Expect The Unexpected”
Yeah, because there was no way to predict this. No chance in hell that the Yankees could beat the Red Sox. None. They have no weaknesses, and we’re a walking enigma. Million-to-one longshot.
It’s like Seabiscuit v. War Admiral. Buster Douglas v. Mike Tyson. Hickory High v. South Bend Central. This is the most shocking development in human history. Nothing is safe anymore. Sun may not come up tomorrow. Space-time continuum is in jeopardy.
Holy shit. I thought you were kidding.
I hope we don’t get shifted into sidereal time.
The truth is sometimes more pathetically disgusting than fiction.
I was going to post this, but at this point, I expect this from ESPN.
Good thing the Yanks got to their MIDDLE RELIEF tonight!!
It’s like Seabiscuit v. War Admiral. Buster Douglas v. Mike Tyson. Hickory High v. South Bend Central. USA v. USSR. This is the most shocking development in human history. Nothing is safe anymore. Sun may not come up tomorrow. Space-time continuum is in jeopardy.
You missed one.
Basil Exposition: Austin, the Cold War is over.
Austin Powers: Finally those capitalist pigs will pay for their crimes, eh? Eh comrades? Eh?
Basil Exposition: Austin… we won.
Austin Powers: Oh, smashing, groovy, yay capitalism!
At least the sub head was “Yankees batter Red Sox / Lester leaves hurt”. Quite a bit of restraint for ESPN.
From the Sons of Sam Horn game thread:
There once was a man named Varitek
who could catch and throw to great effect.
But then he got old,
and covered with mold.
Now he can’t get no respect.
Perfect. He should really retire. It’s time.
Gotta be tough to watch the “heart” of your team drop off a cliff like he has. Not that I feel bad for him or for them or anything. But still. Yikes.
Yeah, watching Varitek disintegrate must have been painful to watch… two years ago.
Yeah, I don’t care. Him, Ortiz and Papsmear are my least favorite Sux.
I wouldn’t think the Sux pick up his option ($5 mil), but he also has a player option for $3 mil. If he exercises it, do the Sux just DFA him?
I thought at the beginning of the season he might be better than 2008 since he had put the Hazel Me, Heidi Watney dalliances resulting in divorce behind him. But he’s just finished.
Nah that was just a fan/media created-narrative because they couldn’t face his decline. He just sucked. Too bad, so sad.
Not sad for me.
Anyone who throws a punch w/ his mask on is just a no class punk. The 2 Ks and DP tonight were sweet.
(Just to clarify, the “too bad, so sad” part was meant as sarcasm.)
I lived in the Boston area at the time, read both papers and listened to WEEI Sports Radio and it wasn’t much publicized until well into the divorce, and then not really very much in the papers or on WEEI. It was kind of a sub-terranean story. MSM kind shied away from it, even during the protracted contract negotiations.
I love Jeter but he has to be the most boring sound bite ever. He is the master of cliches. He’s memorized millions of them.
Boston Herald Headline ” Yankees, ARod bruise Lester and Red Sox”
lohud and rab again have the same picture
I still want my Lou Gehrig picture embedded in the game thread, for ol’ times sake. Come on, Axisa. The man DIED FOR YANKEE GLORY!
tsjc, i said that too a couple of threads ago ,i wanted to see lou, and derek also tomorrow, even if it was just in little pics, you have a-lot of pull around here, try twisting some arms
Otter: You guys up for a toga party?
Bluto: TOGA! TOGA!
Otter: Ah, I think they like the idea, Hoov.
