No doubt about it…the Yankees Suck October 10, 2007

Posted by whatpushesmybuttons in baseball, critique, opinion, sports, yankees.

I haven’t busted out the shirt yet, but I’m very tempted to:

Good job coming through in the clutch yet again. Way to manufacture those runs guys. No need to attempt to steal a base or bunt someone other. Nah, just hit into double plays all night. That’ll light up the scoreboard for sure.

Oh and to all the assholes who said to start Wang over Mussina even though Mussina is a grizzled veteran who is accustomed to playoff baseball – nicely done. Pricks. No one ever asks for my advice on the Yanks, but they should. I’ve been following the team for 25 years. Youth wins. Small ball wins. I’d rather try with the likes of young players like Andy Phillips and Bubba Crosby then lose with over the hill veterans like Gary Sheffield and Tony Clark. Lot of good those assholes did in 04.

It’s time for change. Let the youth play. Even if you have to absorb a few losing seasons, i’d rather do that than watch “the highest paid team in baseball” fail to deliver time and time again.

BTW big props to the talented folks over at Boston Dirt Dogs (http://www.bostondirtdogs.com) for their humorous twist on the Yankees saga:

Good luck to the Sox dealing with the upstart Indians…hopefully they’ll prove to be a better opponent than the 04 Cardinals. Maybe Borowski can channel some inner Ricky Vaughn and start blowing away the Sox.

I’m going to refrain from making any yankees/red sox comments. I’m just going to give you this:

😀 😀 😀 😀

Was that mean? I’m sorry. 🙂 hehehe.

(go sox!)

Oops, that just slipped out. I was pretty amazed at the yankees however. I was expecting more from them, as I’m sure a lot of people were. I would have liked to see a yankee-red sox matchup, just one last time.

I’m not going to refrain from any such comments. The way Manny is hitting the ball in the playoffs is re-damn-diculous. I have no doubt after Beckett pitches a shutout this Friday that the Sox move on in 5. At the most. I just hope we fire Francona after this season.

Yankees Suck! Yankees Suck!

pretty hard pill to swallow…i’m resigned to the fact the sox will win the WS again.

yeah…what happens to steinbrenner once the sox wins…does he spontaneous combust?

i’m pretty much done with baseball for the season…the redsox will beat the piss out of the rockies/dbacks worse than they did the cardinals…

no worries guys, you can pour it on. it’s fine. honestly, i didn’t expect playoffs this season. but once they let the youth in they made the charge. don’t know why they feel the need year after year to sign veterans for their “playoff” prowess. Look at the Dbacks, Rockies, not too many veterans on their rosters.

anyway, not going bitch about it too much. if anything after getting screwed trying to get postseason tickets even though i’m a season ticket holder licensee i’m happy they lost. fuck steinbrenner that greedy sob. i’m glad they’ll miss out on millions in post season profit. maybe that’ll teach them not to sign players to 1 trillion dollar contracts

I guess I’m the sox fan that isnt that confident. I’m thinking it’s gonna take 7 and then I’m not sure who will take it. I do think whomever comes out of the AL should win, but I thought that last year with Detroit over St. Louis and that didn’t work out to well.

keywork why would get rid of francona and who would you replace him with? Yes there are times where he does some head scratching things but all managers do. Ask Chris about his thoughts on Torre’s bullpen habits. The players all respect Francona tremendously and he has had this team in the playoffs three times in 4 years, twice being the ALCS and a world series win. It’s really tough to complain about that. He averages about 94 wins a year (93.75) which is typically good enough to make the playoffs.

i guess some people can’t do anything right.
