Karma is a biyatch.

Was the pitcher who hit him saying it was a foul ball?

So I wasn't the only one that saw him screaming for a swinging foul ball while Markakis was writhing in pain?! Sounds like the rest of the guys haven't forgotten about ole CC either. Lets get it on!

Sorry, meant Nunez. Kay was saying during the broadcast that the team wants Granderson in LF and Gardner in CF. Thats the best option on defense. Wether that was true or just Kay speculating im not sure.

I don't know, but Nunez makes Mark Reynolds look skilled at 3rd base.

Tough break for the Yanks. I will say I think this is a rebuilding year for them,even if they aren't saying it. As for karma in relation to Markakis,unless it involves CC,I don't go for rooting for injuries or not feeling bad for them. Just me of course.

If CC gets hurt though like he did at the end of the ALCS..wouldn't bother me a bit.

I just took a look at the first half of the Yankee-Blue Jay game.

The man they replaced Granderson was not Eduardo Nunez (albeit he was already in the starting lineup) - it was former Cuban player Ronnier Mustelier. He has very evident power but there's no telling yet if he can consistently hit major league pitching. He may make the major league squad.

I'm telling you guys again, the Yankees are a 4th place team this season. They have 83 players in camp this spring in a desperate attempt to find depth. Sounds familiar I know, but if they're looking at Juan Rivera and Matt Diaz... those guys are 34 and 35 this season. And Ichiro is 39 and looked slower today. The team got blanked by a split-squad featuring J.A. Happ, Brett Cecil and Justin Germano.

The Jays, the Rays and the Orioles are all better top-to-bottom as of today.

@DKnobler: Yankees announce Granderson has fractured right forearm. Expected to be out 10 weeks.

Saw this happen didn't look too bad. Tough break for CG one of the only yanks I like.

Yeah, but that's like going to a prison and picking out an inmate who "ain't so bad." In other words...I hate them all!

That said, I don't wish injury on anyone, but I hope the Yankees age finally catches up to them this year.

    • Have you seen the lineups? They are a joke. Hyde has to go too.     😎 Insomnia in progress. 
    • I have to admit I am all for resigning Burnes too, I just can't remember the last time the O's signed a free agent the other top teams wanted.  I don't think even Chris Davis fits that category because the O's were bidding against themselves.  Albert Belle?  I guess I'll just try to be hopeful.  I can't see Rubenstein making himself the public face of the franchise and then turning around and basically saying this is going to be my cash cow.  I guess we'll soon find out.  I have to admit I am looking forward to this way more than the election.  lol
    • It seems to me they should probably change their approach or the season will end up a disaster.  It’s frankly unexplainable they haven’t demoted/traded/DFA’d the players that aren’t performing.  It’s a joke management thinks this group of players has any chance of winning anything.  Imagine if they could just walk more..
    • Sorry I’m not Gretzky fan , lol . And don’t know any of his quotes. But I would love to hear it , if you can share.    Speaking of bullpen, I agree that ours needs to be augmented and upgraded.  The trade deadline is coming soon so……..
    • I agree. He's a major factor in our odds to win a World Series. Gotta go for it while you can and keep him if we can. I generally don't like big contracts and view them as over pays. I criticized the Albert Belle signing, I hated the Ubaldo Jimenez signing, and I didn't feel comfortable with the Chris Davis extension. But to me those players did not have a solid consistent careers as a pure Ace player like Burnes does. Burnes is a player I feel confident that you know what you're getting, even if we can expect a decline by age 35. Up to that point, you're getting a perennial Cy Young competitor to anchor your entire Pitching Staff and give you a chance to win when you need it most just like he did tonight in the game 3 rubber match in a series against division rivals. This series against the Red Sox, Burnes was effectively the Stopper and got us back on track. I'm all for resigning Corbin Burnes! It's on my Christmas wish list!
    • I agree. He's been such a key part of the team competing this year. Especially since we don't have a good bullpen, Corbin Burnes has been HUGE for us. For us to keep the window to a World Series chance open, we have to at least try to retain his services. Ya never know if you don't try! What's that Wayne Gretsky quote about shots you don't take?
