Why the Yankees will ROCK

Aquisitions such as the Big Unit, Carl Pavano, TINO, Ramiro, Wright, and TONY WOMAK, as supposed to Pedro and Beltran and.....ummmmm......Thats it, isn't it, is the reason the yanks will slaughter the Mets.

Why the Yankees will SUCK

The Yank-mes will blow up this year. You can quote me on that. Steinbrenner went too apeshit when the Sox tore the Yankees a new one in the ALCS and he overloaded his team with too many egos. Egos that will not be as willing to share the spotlight.

Prediction: If the Yanks make the playoffs, it'll be only be because the AL will be to the NL what the NFC was to the AFC this year. Everybody will have to suck equally for the Yankees to suck less than everyone else.

ahhhh yes the old quantity over quality argument. so if i offered you 2 gems or 6 pieces of shit, i guess i dont have to explain which one you would take would you.

johnson is to old to pay that kinda cash for...even more risky than pedro. tino(hes so great you just had to put his names in caps right) is finished. womak is decent but he will be forced to the bottom of the lineup. i'll say pavano and wright arent bad moves though they reallt needed a lefty(you'll say johnson but at his age why didn't they get lefty grove. don't give me that crap about him being dead, george would wnat him because he would not have to pay his medical or dental.)

you said thats all the mets got. what about kris benson? they got him at the trade deadline and resigned him.

the mets will be decent this year. the have a better outfield than the yankees. (floyd-beltran-cammy). piazza behind the plate(yes hes old....but in a contract year). BETTER ROTATION THAN THE YANKEES.
glavine
pedro
benson
zambrano
trachsel

they at least know who the starting 1B is.

Game Over....you lose

ok well randy johnson will be money should he stay healthy
carl pavano will be a slight upgrade over vazquez, but likely with the same results as javy last year- big disappointment
tino, ramiro...who cares?
jaret wright... completely going to buckle under the pressure
tony womack- career year last year, bum back to boot

nevertheless, the yankees will still win the divsion

Are You Kidding?

Johnson
Mussina
Pavano
Wright
Brown

That rotation kills the Metrolpolita's rotation. Even if you put Pedro in the number 2 slot (which he won't be in) You say that Randy Johnson is worse off medically than Pedro. Whatever,your just jealous that he was BETTER than Pedro. As for Beltran, he was a good pick up, for now, but he batted .268 last year, not impressive.


Wright is under NO pressure. Neither is Pavano, nor Moose. Only Randy, and he's the only one who can handle it.

Outfield wise, you must be on literal crack to think that floyd-beltran-cameron is better than Hideki-Bernie-Sheffield. Our offense levels out our defense, while your defense does not come close to levelign the offense.

you're delusional. brown is old and declining, wright had one good season after how many failures? mussina was not good at all last year, and pavano is going to have huge spotlights on him after being brought in for the contract he garnered.

pedro, glavine, trachsel, zambrano, benson is a safer rotation. better? probably, partially due to pitching in the nl. the yankees have a higher reward if everything goes right with theirs, but the mets 9 times out of 10 will out pitch the yankees.

the defense in the outfield for the yankees is going to be BRUTAL. beltran and cameron will cover a hell of a lot of ground, floyd may be gimpy, but the other two out there for the mets makes up for it.

seriously the outfield thing............you stupid. okay out of the six of them the best overall player NOW(opening day) is beltran. #2 is cammy gold glover with nearly 30 dingers last year. floyd is probably tied for 5/6 with bernie. bernie is done is over

again game over...............continue? they are unlimited
