Man Girardi and the Yankees holier-than-thou attitude is really getting old. I hope we kick their ass these next few games. Obviously it would take a lot for the Rays to catch them for the WC (7 games back), but 5 straight losses at the hands of the lowly Orioles could certainly make things more interesting!

We have to endure our stadium being overrun by their damn fans every time we play them at home. We don't owe them one damn thing. And if we ended up playing one of our home games in Yankee stadium so they didn't have to travel on an off day, I'd lose it. Seriously....I'm all for turning off the hot water to the visiting locker room when they're in town. Overcook their team meals. Feed them gas station sushi that's been transported across town in a Yugo. Let's just have Gregg start the game (hint).

This part of Girardi's counter-response to Buck's criticism really proves he just doesn't get it:

These are circumstances that aren’t normal. It’s kind of like the Marlins had to go up to Seattle because they had a concert. I’m sure they weren’t happy about it.

They didn’t move it to a neutral site. I’m sure they weren’t happy with it. Cleveland had to go play in Milwaukee because of crazy circumstances. Sometimes the circumstances dictate what happens.

It's like Girardi hasn't understood yet that the "circumstances that aren't normal" include Flanny's death and the Oriole community's need to mourn it. The jerk has the gall to compare some "concert" in Miami to Mike's passing away, the O's commemoration of his death, and hurricane Irene!! :rolleyestf: It makes me also conclude that, whatever the intention or feelings of whoever planned the Y's moment of silence for Mike before their game against the A's, Girardi did not want or feel the need to honor his memory at all. He, Granderson, and whichever Yankee agrees with them--which you have to assume is a majority of them if Granderson felt justified in lodging an official complaint as the players' rep.--are PERMANENTLY on my s**tlist.

Joe Angel just said, "The Yankees said that they aren't happy. Oh really ? Is that such a big deal ?" :thumbsup1:

I never thought I'd hate a Yankee more than Teixeira, but man, Girardi is really giving him a run for his money. Good to see Buck standing up for the O's and against the Yankees, it's about damn time someone did.

Joe Angel, PART II: "With what has been occurring with Hurricane Irene, the Yankees are just going to have to find a way to survive." :wedge:

I really don't know why this whole situation has got me so heated, but it has:

Showalter also used the term hypocritical and wondered how the yankees would have handled things if they lost one of their greats.

Great point. They'd probably delay a game and throw a frickin parade if one of the Holy Yankees passed away.

How is the weather there today? I wouldn't mind seeing one of these games rained out. Force a double header on the 8th. Or maybe both of today's games postponed, they have two off days right?

They'll play both games today, but man, that would have been glorious.

It would be more glorious to just sweep them and help knock them out of the playoffs. Here's to hoping for long losing streaks by the Sox and Yankees!

    • Interesting nugget... I googled Grand Ole Opry to make sure I spelled it right (Thought there was an apostrophe in there somewhere but no...) Anyways... First link I trusted was Wiki. In the first paragraph it said the GOO was started in 1925! KDKA started in late 1920 (Pres. Harding election results.) GOO was only 4+ years after that! I would have guessed mid 30's maybe but 1925... that's REALLY in radio's infancy!   In 1925 I would guess there were MAYBE a couple hundred radios TOTAL within a 50 mile radius of Nashville. Well before the TVA, most of the region didn't even have electricity.
    • Something on the Front Page reminded me of this 1956 joint. There's a couple versions of this on youboob, just snagged a different one from 1965 at the Grand Ole Opry. I LOVE the fiddle player just STYLIN' for the camera. 😛    
    • While Lamar did play better than RG3, keep in mind the league context.  He had a 121 Rating+ (basically OPS+ for passer rating, adjusted for that season's averages. Over 100 is good, less is bad.)  Lamar's 2019 was 128.  So Lamar is still better, but that was RG3 as a rookie.  Who knows how he would have done if he didn't get hurt/if he was drafted by an org not owned by Dan Snyder.   That said, I don't think it's reasonable to use RG3's injury problems as a reason not to sign Lamar long term.  I think that they were specific to RG3 and the team he played for. (I think the Football Team horribly mismanaged him.)   In general running QBs havent had high injury risk, any more than regular QBs.  Look at Steve Young, Randall Cunningham, Russell Wilson, Newton, Culpeper, VIck.  All have been fairly durable, certainly no bigger an injury risk than any other QB.  There is some risk that some injuries are going to be more damaging to Lamar's career because of his reliance on his athleticism, but given that many running QBs have stayed productive into their 30s I think this risk is relatively low. I don't think Vick is a great comp because he didn't really figure out how to be a passer until after he came back from his jail sentence.  Vick's best Rating+ pre-jail/suspension is 104, which is worse than Lamar's 2020.  And that's taking 6 Vick seasons compared to 3 Lamar seasons. I think Deshaun Watson checks off more boxes as a good comp, because of the recency of his contract, his performance, his playoff (lack of) success, and his playing style. If we're being realistic, Lamar has no real comparables.  There isn't a QB in NFL history that generates as much true dual-threat value as Lamar.  I think this actually is a problem when trying to figure out how much to pay him.  He's got the intangibles, sure (at least when it comes to regular season play) but with no real comps, it's kind of impossible to project his development/future performance. We know that the Ravens don't really throw the ball much, but in 2019 they were pretty damn efficient at it, and in 2020 they were middle-of-the-pack.  But when you can run the ball for 6-10 yards a carry, it kind of eliminates the need to throw the ball.  Imagine how good you'd have to be throwing the ball to make it a better proposition than running in most game situations.  And we also don't know how much his running ability affects his passing game.  And there's no way to know that until he can't run anymore.  Which isn't happening for 4-5 years barring injury. Even if it's risky, I think you really have no choice but to pay him, especially if you can get a contract with an out after his age-28 or 29 season.  It's easy to point to our mistake with thinking Flacco was worth an extension, but that's no reason to deny Lamar his extension, especially given that he's already shown the ability to singlehandedly carry us into the playoffs, even if he has struggled once there.  Flacco never carried this team in the regular season the way Lamar does.  In fact it was our multiple HOFers on the other side of the ball that carried Flacco into the postseason so he could be the hero for a couple games.  Credit to him for stepping up in January, but someone has to get us there, and we don't have anyone else who can do that.  The chance that we find someone in the draft that can do that is not that great.  Certainly lower than the chance that Jackson is going to take us to the SB.  I guess we could talk swapping him for someone like Deshaun Watson, but I just don't know how plausible that really is.
    • Lol, you gotta wait until spring training for those gems.
    • Well, now we know why Jim Hunter became redundant.
    • Brob was one of those let go.  I will miss him!  But he  remains as an "ambassador" as does Demper.  
    • I must have missed it, but I haven't seen anyone mention B-rob. Is he gone? I thought I heard him on some broadcasts last summer.
