    Did you guys read about the construction worker that buried the Red Sox t-shirt in the foundation of the new Yankee Stadium? He thinks he started a new "curse." Lmao! How weak is that? If anything, it's symbolic of how the Yanks will bury the Sox!

    That's a very good point. For the most part since the 1920's, when the Yankees were good, the Red Sox weren't and vice versa. The Babe Ruth curse was spoken of mainly because of the Red Sox's inability to win a World Series with some great teams in 47, 67 and 86 while the Yankees won at least one title in every decade as well as a lot of near misses with the exception of the 80s.

    I think that taking all that time to remove that jersey was a waste of time. I heard that they might file charges against the guy.

    Rain delay was rather irritating last night. Hughes was looking solid and would have been a real confidence boost to see him continue on. Instead he gets screwed out of a start and the Yanks get lamed. Kennedy is going to get rocked again (he just doesn't look MLB ready yet and needs to go down for a bit.) However Pettitte is auto after Yankees losses sooooo.

    Also Chad wtf? I thought it was a 1 week ban. We need some more Yankee talk up in this hizzy

    My prediction of how well the Yankees will do in any given year has always depended on where they are at the All Star break. History shows that if they are within 5 games of the top (In most years they have been on top) it bodes well for them. Well Trauma 1, get ready cause flaws and all here we come. Talk to ya next weekend.

    Thats being a little dramatic, I agree he should be an All-Start but def not the starter. Cliff Lee should IMO, he's been dominating all year.

    I have been watching the yank's latley along side the six and Rivera is stupid good. Like in a whole other level than any other pitcher in MLB. He paints and I mean PAINTS the corners, if he misses he misses to where the ball is suppose to go (inside pitch drifts too far inside and vic versa). I have not seen him throw a pitch that is not on the black of the plate with his fastball or cutter. It is truly amazing how good he is.

    Im not a jaba fan either

    my feeling was that mussina deserves to make the team, no doubt, but I thought out of respect for the yankees and it being in the stadium I thought that they would give him the nod.

    Rivera is the greatest closer of all time, bar none!!!


    Joba is awesome. He could be one of the top starters in the leage soon by age 23. He is a phenom. That said, between he and mussina thats all they have right now

    Good point about Moose.

    Yea anyone who doesn't recognize that Rivera is the best doesn't know baseball IMO. I can't even begin to explain how good his stuff is.

    I dont know about Jaba, he doesn't have command of 3 good pitches, which you need to be a great starter. But given his age this is somthing that is doable. I think they should put him in the rotation until Rivera is done then pass the torch. Escpecially with all the pitching injures they have had this year Jaba needs to be in the rotation. But Jaba would be a dominant closer no doubt.

    Best *****ry in sports no matter what time it is. Question though, what was your reaction with Manny in the ninth against mo going 3 and out?

    What I really want to know though, is how in the hell are we both looking up at the Damn Devil Rays at the All Star Break (yes I know its Rays), but this was the damn Devil Rays we are talking about. wttttttttttfffffffffffffff!

    Manny had the hit that won the game tonight though.

    They're young, fast, and dynamic. I kind of saw it a few years ago, but didn't expect this. Howver, it will fade off. They don't have the experience to hold it up when it counts right now. The sox and yanks will both finish ahead of them......for how long though, who knows. They're pretty damn good.

    I have had arguments with baseball fans, who claim rivera is good but not great. makes me laugh every time.

    in terms of joba, I think with his fastball, the leagues premier slider and his good curve he will be set. I wanted him as the closer, but they seem to tthink of him as a starter, and I am amazed at how well he has done in that role.

    Other than the red sox and rangers he's pitch'd against BAD teams, and NL teams so they're even worse,lol.

    San Diego 36-55
    Pittsburgh 42-47
    Huston 41-50
    KC 41-50

    Sorry I just think he's way over rated as a starter and think he should stick to the pen, nothing against him he has no choice

    Seeing as how he was fast tracked into a starting role, he's doing ok. Let's see how he does in his next few starts before we judge him. There was no way that he was gonna just jump out of the chute and be great but, he still could impact this season in a big way.

    True but that gets back to my point of being able to throw 3 good pitches for strikes. After just 1 AB a hitter has a pretty good idea of what someone brings to the table and thats why starters have 3-4 pitches where relievers have 2 usually. See in the summer I usually plat against guys I've played with or against for the past 2-3 years. I own most of them because they have 2 pitches they can throw for strikes and after having close to 20AB's against them they're not effective. Get what I'm saying? 2 guys that come to mind I'm like 3-11 or something like that because even though I know what they have they have 3 pitches they can come at me with. This is how things work in MLB too.

    As a starter I think he'd be about a .500 guy maybe like a 12-10 guy or something like that but as a closer he's getting 45+ saves a year.

    Reading my post about Jaba it looks like I think he's garbage but I really don't. I think he's a good pitcher. I just don't like all this hype he's getting.

    he is certainly over hyped, I mean hell its the yankees for goodness sakes. I think he will be a very solid #2 when all is said and done, and he has 3 solid pitches. Who knows, with Rivera, maybe he learns a cutter?

    I dont even want to think about that .

    98-101 with a cutter that would probably run 95-97 no thanks. He throws a slider now, i believe, so the transition to a cutter would be real easy.

    thats a very fair point. in fact, watching him on Sunday I believe, I kept saying its ok to throw strikes and get pop outs at 1-0 or 0-1 instead of always looking for a strike out. He has all the talent in the world, and as he matures will learn to pitch better

    The best 2nd half team in baseball appears to be picking up steam, watch out.

    Richie Sexon is a lefty destroyer. He'll fit in perfectly (especially since hes getting paid the league minimum of 180,000) as a lefty pitcher fill in as well as those days as giambi's days off or dh him.

    Jorge is a big lost with this bat, but Molina is a caught stealing Army of 1. The biggest concern going into this year, pitching, is looking solid from the Vets (hopefully Joba can really stand strong in the clutch in the must do days coming up).

    With TB starting to show their young age and "true colors" the Wild card is looking tight, and the Sox's aren't playing amazing baseball (from both injuries, and Manny being Manny).

    I like our chances a lot. Go Yanks!

    yea he did that this year with one of the worst teams in baseball. He'll crumble under pressure....like he has every year since coming to the majors.

    Molina is solid behind the plate, one of the better in the show, but his bat..........well it's def no Posada.

    Ya his bat is a joke compared to Jorge (but than again Jorge hasn't been able to show this year that 2007 wasn't an absurd fluke). Potentially the biggest loss will be if Hideki is done for the season. He would be a hard bat to fill, although Robbie is looking like he is finally getting his ass into gear.

    Manny is, and always will be the ultimate yankee killer. He absolutely OWNS the yanks when playing them over his career in both cleveland and boston. I love it.

    Don't underestimate the sox. We've been playing without ortiz for quite some time. Our offense (which is already on of the best in baseball) gets a HUGE boost with papi back.
