Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
The Yanks were thoroughly out-played last night. Today, they get Josh Beckett. Could be a long weekend.
Regardless, here is something to kick off the game in style.
Have a safe and Happy holiday, everyone and Let's Go Yan-Kees!.
I could stand going downtown in a good mood, with a Yankees' win, if it isn't too much trouble for the Bronx Bombers.
I was so wrong about you earlier this year. I am sorry.
Quite frankly I wasn't expecting the Yankees to cash in on Damon's lead off double.
54 I figure we should slap a dome on the new stadium and heat it to 86 degrees in April.
I think Damon might have fractured a rib.
Really, though, Rsner hasn't been that bad. He'll struggle through five innings against a good hitting team, like a decent fifth starter will do. Unfortunately, there are too many fifth starters on the staff, and too many injuries and slumps in the lineup.
Meanwhile Mr. Play The Game Right screams on the mound after getting out of the jam... but I thought you weren't allowed to show emotion on the mound in the regular season?
I'd also have no problem with Hank firing Cashman and Girardi tonight to make a point. If I can't get good baseball, I'll take chaos.
that inning is a microcosm of thisseason....
Do the Yankees have an emergency catcher? Like Miguel Cairo used to be?
naah--we aren't good enough. with the injuries, we're an 86 win team.
I guess Girardi agreed with my assessment of
how much they're trying or he wouldn't have had the dreaded team meeting.
Anyway the Sox had to go through this in 2006 and came out okay. As Steve miller said, sometimes "you got to go through hell before you get to heaven".
Remember when they punted all those games against terrible teams? It would have been nice ro have that cushion now.
But in the end, it doesn't matter.
As long as its a hitting prospect. It would be a shame to lose them so Cashman could acquire another bomb of a starter, generic right handed reliever, or walking wounded
Mussina, in particular, should be attractive to any number of contending teams, almost all of whom need pitching. He has 10-and-five rights, though, and would have to give his OK.
