A-Rod opts out of Contract [28 Oct 2007|11:24pm]

Part of me can not believe it. Then again I can believe it. He is a good player. Here is the write-up. Some people are saying that A-Rod will get any where from $28-$30 million a year in his next contract. Can you imagine that kind of yearly salary? Just something interesting.

OK, I don't know if this ad has been playing in NY, or elsewhere, but I just saw the Roger Clemens ATT/Cingular add. Too flippin' funny!

I dunno which is worse.  Finally getting to watch a Yankees game on TV, or having to hear the smugness of the home field broadcasters.  It's the 6th, and they are already giving Fatso the win.  Things could change!!!!

sometimes I'm really stupid [08 Jul 2007|12:53pm]

the past few days I've been complaining that the Yankees are finally on TV and I can't watch because of long hours at work.  I'm sleeping in this morning, and my phone chirps with scores from the slugfest.  It took me till the 4th inning to realize... DUH! I"M NOT AT WORK, I CAN TURN ON THE GAME!!!

Uggg.  Sometimes it's rough being a Yankee Fan in Southern California.

Confusing question, but stay with me on this:

If you could time travel back to the 2003 season and say to everyone that the team that lost 119 games in arguably one of the worst major league seasons ever would defeat a highly favored Yankee team in the ALDS and advance with ease into the World Series in the next 3 years, how hard do you think everyone would laugh?

I'm still a little shellshocked at how fast this team has gone from one of the biggest loser teams in the league and completely incapable of making the playoffs for decades to enormous World Series favorites.

RIP Cory Lidle [13 Oct 2006|01:45am]

I seriously can't believe what happened. It's definitely been a sad couple of days in baseball. He seemed like such a good guy, it's a shame us Yankee fans didn't get to learn much about him.

RIP Cory. I'm sure you're up there playing catch with Thurman.

sooo yesterday was my first trip to yankee stadium.

that place is absolutely amazing.
i didn't want to come home.

the game was absolutely amazing as well.
i honestly don't think i've ever heard anything so beautiful in my life as when 'enter sandman' started playing and rivera crossed the field.
eeee, i can't even explain my excitement right now.

all in all, it was totally worth the drive (4 hours there and 7 hours home - damn traffic) and i'm totally planning on making the trip as many times as possible next season.
:) :) :)

Yipee! [25 Aug 2006|03:49pm]

Living in the LA area, one doesn't have much hope for watching Yankee games. Just the ones on ESPN, and the few games when they play the Angels. My company has excellent season tickets to the Angels, but they sell off all the Yankee and Boston games to pay for the rest of the season. :: sigh ::

However, a buddy of mine scored some season tickets from a client to Sundays game! And has invited ME! SWEET! No clue where the seats are. Hopefully in the shade (as it is a 12:30 game!)

YIPEE! I get to see the bombers live and in person!

this community has been pretty quiet, but i wanted to share my news with people who would appreciate it.

i'm getting ready this morning and my mom comes into my room to tell me to not make any plans for august 31st. i didn't ask questions because i'm heading back to school in a few weeks, so i just assumed it was something to do with that. as she leaves my room, she goes "you'll be spending the day in new york" and shuts the door. it takes a minute for that to sink in and i fling open my door to find her still standing there with a smile on her face. i ask what she means and she replies with "august 31st, 1:05pm, detroit tigers vs new york yankees at yankee stadium, you will be at that game."

cue me jumping around screaming and throwing confetti.

i have been dying to get to yankee stadium since, uh, forever. however, living in massachusetts with die hard red sox fan parents and lack of sufficient funds / anyone to travel to new york with me, i figured it was never going to happen. but instead i have the coolest parents in the world who are willing to travel to the dark side to see their worst rival play at their home stadium just for meeeee! :)

and that's the end of my story.

With the acquisition of Abreu, and his contract keeping him with the Yankees for the next two years (at least), where does this leave Melky Cabrera? I can't be alone in saying that I thought that the Yankees would platoon until Matsui came back and push Melky to right field where he would become the everyday right fielder by next year. It's obvious this year he's ready for the majors. And with the other outfield spots taken, what's the fate for Melky? Take a role similar to Bubba Crosby (maybe even taking the place of Bubba)? Doomed to Columbus again next year? Or perhaps will he be moved during the offseason?

Well, it's offical, the Yanks acquired Bobby Abreu and Cory Lidle for 4 minor league players.
I'm not sure how I feel about Abreu just yet...he tends to be hot or cold, no middle ground. A lot of people(including my dad) believe this could be just the thing to light a fire in him. We'll see. For what we're giving up, I don't see how we could NOT make this happen, so in that aspect I'm pretty pleased.

Jason Giambi was not in the lineup yesterday for the first time in 23 games because Joe Torre thought in watching his recent at-bats that he has been "dragging."

Giambi didn't argue.

"I think it's a combination of I've been garbage lately, and that I don't hit well against Lilly," Giambi said, "so it's probably a good time for a day off."

Giambi, 2-for-13 in his career against Lilly, has only nine hits in his last 52 at-bats (.173) and believes he may be trying to do too much at the plate. "I've been extending my strike zone a bit trying to drive in some runs and take some pressure off Al," Giambi said, referring to third baseman Alex Rodriguez.
Giambi's slump has brought his average down to .255, but he said, "The shift has sucked up a lot of hits. I definitely feel better swinging the bat than my average shows."

- Now we can blame A-Rod for Giambi's slump too!

CONE! [18 Jul 2006|09:28pm]

airstretch
Today is the 7 year anniversary of David Cone's perfect game! I can't believe it's been that long. David Cone is my number 1 all time favorite player. Having seen him come close a time or two before it was pretty sweet (and unbelievable) to watch him go out there and set down 27 in a row.

This guy was a big-time money pitcher who could always be counted on in a big spot, not to mention a standup guy. Watching him pitch for the Yankees was such a joy and a privilege. The kind of player and pitcher he was, is a dying breed, there aren't many guys like him left. Big time arm, without the big mouth (Schilling) or shitty attitude (Randy Johnson); yet still colorful enough in his own special way.

No other pitcher in pinstripes will ever do #36 justice.

I read recently he and his wife had their first child, a boy. Hopefully he's enjoying retirement and might even come back to YES one day and save us from Al Leiter and Jim Kaat.

What's going on? [06 Jul 2006|09:42pm]

OK, so living in CA, I don't get all the dirt.  What the heck is happening with the Yanks?  First we get clobbered, then we lash back.  What is in the water in Cleveland?
