Why would he? The Pats LOST the Super Bowl this year.

Wagner should also probably keep his comments a little more reserved.

When the 3B umpire correctly calls a ball that hits the LF foul pole a HR, and the home plate umpire incorrectly overrules him, isn't it kind of the manager's job to argue the call and get himself ejected?

he did argue a bit more than he normaly does, and i believe bench coach jerry manuel was ejected.


ahh the mets.. they've done very well in every big series they've had thus far... they won 2 of 3 against the phillies twice, the diamondbacks on the road, and 2 of 2 from the yankees in the bronx.

yet they lose 4 of 7 to the reds and nationals on the previous road trip, after losing 2 of 3 to the dodgers in LA.

they've certainly played with more emotion over the past two games, after the randolph closed door metting and all... but they need to get on a bit of a roll here and not suck it up agains the shit teams so much if willie really wants to save his job going forward.

Speaking as a level-headed Yankee fan with no sense of entitlement, I cannot complain if/when they miss the playoffs this season. Making the post-season every year since 1995 is way more than any fan has a right to expect, let alone tossing in 4 WS titles and tons of amazing memories. So, what worries me is not missing the playoffs, it's Hank and his delusion that he has to be just like Dad to get things done. So far, it's just talk, but, I am afraid that he'll do something rash sooner than later. What do you gain by publicly questioning your GM, or by challenging a fairly veteran team to "play hard"? What a fucking buffoon. NYC deserves better than Jimmy Dolan and Hank running 3 of the most recognizable teams in sports.

the best thing that could have happened to the yankees was for the steinbrenner brothers to not be interested in dad's team, which was rumored to be the case for a while. cashman's trying to do the right thing... build for the future... but you can just see hank getting pissed, firing cashman, trading away the farm for some over-priced veteran past his prime, the yanks making a late season run to make the playoffs, only to be bounced in the first round yet again.

and there's no doubt that they'll make a huge run at c.c. sabathia in the offseason... 'cause honestly, what could go wrong with a pitcher who's 50+ pounds over-weight?

The Yankees really can't be this bad.

Can they?

you don't think they would be... but if you look at the starting lineup from, say, saturday's game...

1. Johnny Damon lf .257
2. Bobby Abreu rf .288
3. Derrick Jeter ss .314
4. Hideki Matsui dh .306
5. Jason Giambi 1b .193
6. Robinson Cano 2b .208
7. Melky Cabrera cf .262
8. Alberto Gonzalez 3b .257
9.Chad Moeller c .243

you've got a slow lead off hitter with the arm strength of jim abbot's other arm, a right fielder who's a dog and avoids outfield walls like the plague, a right side of the infield that can't hit their way out of paper bag, one 'cause of no juice, the other 'cause of, well, who knows why... two catchers with a combined 7 RBI's, a third baseman who splits time between the bronx and the attorney general's office, and the resurection of Generation K... two "ace" young picthers who you couldn't trade for Johan who have a combined 0-8 record with an ERA higher c.c. sabathia's weight...

yea... they really are this bad. heck their best hitter, a natural leadoff or 2 hitter, is forced to bat third because, well, who the hell else are ya gonna put there?

now of course when a-rod and posada get back the offense, you'd assume, will improve... but that pitching staff is still brutal. kennedy and phillips have been terrible, you can only guess how long mussina's new found ability to pitch will last, ape tit's ben awful his past 4 outings, and chien-ming will certainly rack up the wins, but as with any sinker ball pitcher, when the sinker don't sink, you get what happened last night.

there are mucho problemos in the bronx. still too early to declare it a repeat of 1965, but all signs point to the final october of the house that no no nanette built being a silent one.
