Headache disingenuous? Never!


I'm with you, Gump! The Yanks will be fine. Shit, now the pressure is really on the Phils and the BoSox to produce with their Big Ticket free agent signings.

I find the New York writers calling the Phillies old hilarious.

they are, but nearly as old as the yankees are. it would be a concern, but that rotation is so deep they should be able to get through whatever injury bugs may pop up throughout the season.

and if you're going to take a risk on a 32 year old ace, it's nice when he can be your third ace.

Hey, I never called you that. I've got no problem with you insulting the Yankees. We're just having some fun. C'mon, man, if you can dish it, you gotta take it. Don't make me drop a "Lighten up, Francis!" on you.

Oh, absolutely. Rollins hasn't had a good year since he was MVP, and Utley's injured frequently. Ibanez and Polanco are up there too.

But the irony of how old the Yankees are seems lost on them, as you pointed out.

Headache, I apologize for that - it was uncalled for. I actually meant to engage in an interesting discussion (which we had to that point). I think you are generally fair with your criticisms of the Yankees, so I really didn't mean to be antagonistic. Sorry about that.

When I said I like the Mets, I was genuine - they are my favorite NL team. I know it's a strange combination, but I'm not even a New Yorker, so who cares?

Ok, let's spread the love elsewhere:


Hideki Matsui is close to signing with Oakland as their DH for 2011.


Former Blue Jay, Lyle Overbay, has signed with the Pittsburgh Pirates for a one year deal.

There's 2 of those in the entire universe, and they're both in this thread. What are the odds?

I am curious to see what the Yankees do re: pitching. I actually like Hughes, but after him and CC there's major question marks even if Pettitte comes back. There's a rumor floating about Blanton to the Sox, but I think he actually makes more sense for the Yanks as a 4/5 guy.

That opens a spot for Brandon Wood to take over as DH...Sciosh knows he just needs his reps.
