Sweet Caroline.....da da da

So I'm pretty sure I'll still be watching NESN in October. The 07 team has been outstanding and the Eric Gagne pick up was over the top.

Can't ask for much more.

Timely hitting wouldn't hurt any.

Yankee fans just cannot accept that their team's glory is in the past. They cling to bizarre ideas to keep their hopes alive, such as, "It's August 1st, tell me again on October 1."

BT, leave the Dark Side behind and join the future of baseball.

You noticed I haven't changed my sig, huh?
No new hat either. In fact, I had to wash it because my family was getting on my case.


Yes, our at bats have not been up to par. I can't believe how good our bull pen is though. Prior years I would get sick to my stomach when the starter came out of the game.

Bucky,

So Cashman is banking on a rookie reliever to finish the season? I don't understand why they got rid of a pitcher in an already abused BP.

yeah, it takes some 'splainin', which the yankee t.v. announcers keep hammering into our heads.

they had to pay farnsworth a huge amount no matter what, and he can throw 98mph, yada yada, so they might as well let him work out his problems here rather than watch him do well on another team with yankee money in his pocket...
and in order to get someone for this season, they'd have to deal away a few of their up and coming prodigies...

then there's the kid chamberlain, who can throw 100, so they're betting on a coupla long shots.

it's getting boring listen to them spew the team b.s. every day. just win damm!t. that's what we do!

it's another case that if they win, cashman and torre are geniuses. but if they lose, what were they thinking.

lol, andy. another one that thinks that all games since '04 don't really count.
i'm curious about which glory years you're talking about? the 20's and 30's, the 50's, 70's, or the 90's?

ok, you're right. we should lay down and quit now. NOT!

I haven't seen Chamberlain's stuff, but the MFY fans at work say he's real good. The real test, as we all know, is being able to handle the Bronx.

Farns, to me, needs some new surroundings. He's built like a 'brick......house' and can hit 102. But it's flat and he's just not going after batters.

I see the Yankess game score and see they scored 16 runs vs. Kansas City! Amazing, I think, then I see that KC has scored 8 runs on the Yankees! Their pitching staff gave up 8 runs to one of the worst teams in MLB.

it does make things interesting!

i haven't followed a season this closely in a decade or more.

k.c.'s pitching staff had the best era in baseball since the all-star break, before the yanks took them apart. twice now.

btw, HAH! i managed to turn this into a yankee thread.
