I'll give you that, since the Sox still don't know who the hell will close.

if you honestly think the jeter/a-rod thing is a non issue, you're diluting your thought. they have genuine dislike for each other, and the media circus that surrounds it can do nothing but make it worse.

yankee fans seem to have short memories... does anyone remember the yankees in the mid to late 80s?

Headache, I think you should get a job with the New York Post. They could use someone like you. This Jeter/Arod "rift" that you speak of sure does sell a lot of papers now, doesn't it?
BTW, the Yanks sucked in the 80's because Boss George had a bad habit of firing managers and signing bad free agents. But since the Boss was banned for three years in the early 90's, he mellowed out and let his baseball people make more of the choices. As a result, the Yanks have been in the playoffs every year.
Now, Headache, remember when you start working for the Post, you're goal is to keep saying that Torre is going to be fired and that Jeter and A-rod don't get along. That'll sell newspapers, right?

I do. I do not have a short memory. I think the A-Rod/Jeter thing is less than ideal, but I question whether it will cause a mass implosion. Again, we'll see.

Mid 80's Yanks were actually pretty good. 1985 Yanks won something like 98 games but missed out on winning the division. Yanks started to go into the tank in the late 80's through the early 90's. But, Headache, the Yankees do truly always have some sort of media circus going on. However, the less controversy (late 90's), the better, of course.

in baseball if 2 players hate each other it doesn't really matter as much as other sports. it's an individual performance sport, and a 2nd and 3rd baseman never need to rely on each other. maaaaybe if they were a 2nd base/ss combo or a pitcher and catcher it would matter, but if a 2nd and 3rd baseman dont like each other, who cares?

shaq and kobe weren't too fond of each other and it worked out alright for them.

ps - Prior didn't look good in his first game. i think he is the key to the Cubs season this year.

by implosion i don't mean they're gonna lose 100 games... an 85 win, 3rd place finish will be treated as an implosion in the diluted minds of yankee world... and if the yankees miss the playoffs, no chance in hell a-rod or torre return.

but you see, he can't be. He's been "the key" for what, 3+ years now? And we know how that has turned out.

The Cub have to had learned their lesson by now. Every thing they get from him should be considered a bonus. I think all the off season moves say that that.

Pavano hasn't been the same since he stopped tagging Alyssa Milano, and thats perfectly understandable.

if i have to hear another yankee fan tell me about someone having to "earn their pinstripes" or "he's not a real yankee," i'm gonna take a dump in my hand and smush it in their face... 'cause the obviously can't smell their own shit, so maybe they can take a whiff of mine.
