To all the poor Yankees fans... nice payroll , ZERO ON RETURNS.. A-KNOB chokes again against the SOX..
yup, i was disappointed. good game last night though.
too bad about matsui, bad way to go out for the season.
Yeh, that was a nasty injury.. wrist bent right back and was flopping around..That guy was a rock... I am sure Steinbrenner is working the phones right now to trade for a outfielder..
Being a diehard sox fan myself there is nothing better than watching the redsox spank the yankees in new york......as always it was a great series....Originally Posted by raider1
they got lucky! lol. yanks will take it in the end
Go twins! Just had to through that in since we beat the white sox 2 games so far, 2 more left. (had to hijack the thread for this, haha)
Yankees havent taken it in a while.....so whats the point of the payroll than? lol Personally I dont like watching everyone hit homeruns, i like a one or two homerun hitters and the rest to be solid hitters that hit it around the field well. I also like a team that does well with a low budget, as in the twins (I love getting into baseball and starting arguements)Originally Posted by pecs=sexs
ahh, the payroll remarks again.

It does become a lame argument after, what, 26 WSC'sOriginally Posted by Beelzebub
Not-for-nothin', but, professional skilled workers base payroll in NYC is higher across the board than that of some city in BFE. NYC window washers, doormen, toll both clerks, and many other jobs are better payed than some degreed professionals in other cities acroos the country. Taxes are higher, cost of living is higher, housing is higher, etc., etc.. Everything in NYC is bigger and better. Especially the Yankees
Don't hate the playa...
oh yeh... That is a great pitching staff they got this year ..
yeah randy johnson got hammered again yesterday...I love it.Originally Posted by raider1
I LOVE the payroll arguement about NY!!! Was it not TEXAS that started this whole sh*t giving A-ROD an *ss-load of cash??? But everyone wants to hate the Yanks. LOL. Keep it coming because hate=fear and the knowledge that they are the greatest team in the history of not only baseball but ALL sports.
Well the curse of the bambino arguement got real old too and the redsox did hand the yanks a whoopin in the last 4 games of the acls in 2004 giving the yankees another stat for the history books....the only team to get beat in a best of 7 series when up 3-0. I don't deny the yankees are a good team, but their arrogance breeds the hate they aquire from fans.Originally Posted by Bionic
I agree, the biggest choke of all time in professional sports ever..and against their hated enemies... nice to clinch it in the bastards own house ... LONG LIVE THE RED SOX NATION !
I don't have a problem with the payroll, my point was for the money they spend, I dont think they are getting as much out of it as they should. Many other teams are very comparable or better in my book with a much lower payroll, that was my point. I wont disagree that the yankees have been one of the best teams ever, they just don't seem to pull through anymore.
On the other hand, I also think some teams should up their budget and stop being little *****es about it. Some teams just need to compete better instead of getting rid of their good players since they don't want to pay them anymore.
Inversely, my point, that 100k a year gets no more in NYC than 60k a year if BFE. Market and it's economics dictate the salaries. The salaries are commensurate with what the market and economics can bare. The salaries do not dictate the performance and or dividends of the investments.Originally Posted by snakebyte05
No doubt! Big friggin' upset, for real! LOL. But who's arrogant? I just don't see it. I don't think Torre or Cashman would stand for it. Plus, whenever a Red Sock is being courted by the Yanks, you hear how all of their talk is mostly out of jealousy. I'm not surprised.Originally Posted by Trauma1
Well I can tell you this. The yankees spring training at legends field is right down the street from the hospital I work at, so whenever one of them gets hurt they come in. I've met giambi and posada that way.....I will say they were cool, but steinbrenner also frequents visits....you wanna talk about arrogant and condescending. The guy is a complete a-hole and I've witnessed him completely degrade healthcare staff who were doing their best and couldn't have been kinder to him. I guess my personal experience dictates the way I feel though. I do agree I don't think torre is in form though.Originally Posted by Bionic
