some of the coaches... rick peterson included... should have already been fired. omar's indecisiveness in this issue just leaves a black cloud over the team that is a huge distraction.

they either need to fire him now or not just announce he's safe for the season, but give him a one year extension, i.e. what the giants did with tom coughlin, just so the players don't think he's a lame duck.

I read that Wang is out for 6 weeks, but now Newsday says that he is out for the year.

FUCK.

I only saw six weeks as well.

If it's a year, it must be broken.

Bavasi is out of Seattle. They really needed to fire McLaren, though.

ESPN still has "at least" six weeks on their front page: ESPN - Foot injury to sideline Wang at least six weeks - MLB

CBS says "he partially tore a tendon and sprained his foot" and will be on crutches for "six weeks or more": Yanks ace Wang to be in boot, on crutches six weeks or more - MLB - CBSSports.com Live Scores, Stats, Schedules

Pretty much, this means that nobody really knows what the hell's going on with Chien-Ming Wang.

he will be in the boot for a minimum of 6 weeks. so if all goes perfectly, he'll be able to begin rehab by the start of august... a rehab that is likely to take at least 2-4 weeks before they'd try him in the majors... moving any chance of his return to late august/early september.

any sort of setback at all and he'll be out for the season. so yea... he's likely thrown his last pitch in the old yankee stadium.

I can't even make my own Wang joke after reading that.

EXCELLENT.

You know your team's having a bad night when Ryan Howard and Pat Burrell both manage to leg out triples.

Christ. Hank Steinbrenner went off on the National League for not having a DH. This fuck is gonna be the worst thing to happen to the Yanks in ages. What a reactionary and immature buffoon he is.

I suppose. It just drives me nuts that teams like your Sox have fairly classy ownership, and we're saddled with this abomination. Hank is such an easy target for the media and opposing fans. George at least limited his stupid outbursts to a bare minimum the past few years, be it due to health reasons or not. Hank says something stupid at least once a month.

I hope Hal poisons him and takes over.

... and we lost again tonight! Brav-O, fellas.

You know it's bad when you go to a game, and at the end of the first inning, it's tied 1-1. All right! You leave your seat to go buy the famed Ichi-roll at the sushi stand.

When you get back to your seat, it's 7-1 Nationals, thanks to a useless pitcher who loaded the bases multiple times and walked in a few runs to boot. And it's not even the middle of the 2nd yet.

Uh ... wait til next year! : shakes fist weakly : Sigh.
