I'm not sure why, but I really enjoy seeing the Yankees in turmoil. It will make for a pleasant winter season.

Kind of feel the same way, Drew. I think I feel that way because money alone can't always buy you the world series.

I would love to see the Rockies take it all.

him carry me, and yet assure myself and others
that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his

his back. - Leo Tolstoy, novelist and Philosopher

They're going to pay boatloads of money to Posada and Rivera, neither of whom will have great years again. They'll lose A-Rod, who will go on to set the record for home runs in another park.

There's talk that Boston may be interested in A-Rod... as much as that pains me as a Sox fan. Though as payback for stealing Johny Damon it might be palatable.

If we get Manny off the payroll we might actually be able to afford it...

Payback for Damon? How about payback for BABE RUTH?

How about a spell which gives the NYY ~80 years of bad luck?

How about something to help Steinbrenner live to 160?!?!?

(that last one is even too much for me... even I don't want to hear about him
for that long)

Hi everyone,

Just a thought on this topic... I pulled this morning's issue of Newsday out of its plastic bag and what do I see? A special wrap around section devoted to Torre and the Yankees. My initial reaction was, "What a waste of space." I guess to fans of the Yankees, baseball and sports in general it's important but we could have easily done without a special wrap around section. I removed the section and tossed it elsewhere on the kitchen table for future recycling.

I hadn't heard, but then again I don't give a crap. I lost interest in baseball about 15 years ago.

And in related news, Amy Winhouse was arrested for posession of marijuana in Norway.




(this is related because the subject of this post is a play on the lyrics to Winehouse's song, "Rehab")

Incentive based based managerial contract like that had to be geared to force Torre to quit... what's he gonna do in a crunch? blow out a pitcher's arm so he can get a extra mil? when it wasn't the pitcher's fault they lost a couple of games they shouldn't have down the stretch? not Torre's style. Torre would get flack for over-using pitcher. Clearly the only way what was proposed works, is no injuries and Yanks cruise to title; any hiccups and Torre's on a hotter seat than he was. Now maybe he'll get to wrestle Rex Hudler for the Angels commentator job...



Sometimes it is what it is...
and then there's times when it's really better.
