Teixeira with a strained wrist. Bad enough to knock him out of the WBC. Injuries just keep mounting for this team.Dont wish injuries on anyone, but as long as he has it I hope its of the nagging variety.Maybe his calf problem will flair-up again also. Just throwing it out there. :D

Living and working in NYC is interesting these days. On my way out to lunch, some guys on the elevator were talking about how bad the Yankees offseason had been. Their consensus was basically that Jeter has to be completely healthy for the whole year, Tex has to hit .300, and Gardner has to have a career year for them to have a chance. I didn't interject, it was too soothing to listen to.

So in other words... they're doomed :mwahaha:

Didn't see this posted on OH but I saw on twitter, same dude who broke the Melky suspension said yesterday that Cano, Granderson and A-Rod are all going to be suspended. Not saying it's true but just saying...

I think the mods should be impressed with my self control here. I copied no less than 5 gifs and came up with half a dozen sarcastic rude comebacks before common sense got the better of me and I decided not to post any of them. ;)

B&G, this has indeed been posted here several times. Most notably here

Snoopy is the greatest. If you watch Peanuts closely, you'll notice that he always has Charlie Brown's back, and he gets back at that ***** Lucy for him in different ways.

Just to add to this, Pinnacle Sports one of the largest offshore sports books has taken down all odds having to do with the Yankees. No season win total, no AL East odds

I seriously dislike Teixeira, but I'm willing to set that aside for the good of the US of A. I would have been truly, deeply happy if he was able to help the States win the WBC, but at the end of the tournament he rips a ligament and was out for the Yanks for 18 months.

I don't. I want the Damn Yankees at full health when the O's beat the piss out of them.

    • 800 OPS in slumps is pretty good. Look at Druw Jones or Elijah Green. I believe he’s making some minor adjustments.
    • You are stating that he has a 52nd percentile throwing arm and that his throws are accurate.  Then stating he does not have a good arm?  Those are conflicting statements.  I'm seeing a 91 percentile for arm value, per Baseball Savant.  Moreover, he does not run like an old man.  A statement like that should be reserved for bottom tier percentile runners, not average or slightly below average ones.    I think his defense could continue to improve, yes.  He's only 25.  You are talking as if he's a guy in his early 30s, who is about to hit a cliff.  In Yankee stadium, he should be able to play adequate defense in RF for quite some time. 
    • Agree that Ottavino would be a good target. He’s somewhat similar to Cano in that he’s a lot better against RHB’s, but he’d still be a good add. I would still hope for an even better reliever (either in addition to him or instead of him if they’re only adding one piece) but he would definitely strengthen the BP.
    • That's why I said I don't think it's his top priority. But I do think he thinks about these scenarios. 
    • Yeah. If it were just Mayo for Skubal for 2+ years, you'd have to consider it
    • Not saying I disagree. It would be hard trade to make due to Skubal injury history.
    • I still need to write about Bill this morning. I saw the Celtics are going to the NBA Finals and thats one of the teams Bill played on. Bill played only two seasons with the Celtics in Boston, but was the sixth man for the 1985-86 championship team that is considered by many to be the greatest team in NBA history. Bill was great friends with Larry Bird,Kevin McHale, Dennis Johnson and his all time favorite player, on and off the court was Bill Russell. Most people don't know it, but his entire life, Bill dreamed of being a Laker. Jerry West, a man I deeply respect in all aspect of the game, turned down Bill's request for a tryout, and Bill was hurt, and Bill never forgot the rejection. Bill was a rare mix of irreverent and traditional old school at the same time. He cared little for personal honors, preferring excellence in pursuit of perfection. But like all of us, HE was imperfect, and perfection is impossible in life because all of us are mortal. Still, I'd like to see the NBA come up with some sort of permanent honor commemorating Bill. It can 't be an honor that represents Bill's deep commitment to his citizenship, because theres already one, it's called the Walter Kennedy Award. Bill Russell has his name on the NBA MVP Award for the Finals, so theres another one not available for Bill. Still, I'd like to see Bill be honored in an award named after him for something that is not easy to quantify. Joy and love for the game. The player who most exemplifies love and joy, for the sport and for life itself. I don't know how you could even award something like that, but maybe the NBA could poll fans or coaches . Of course, Bill would scoff at some award in his name. He turned me down as an honoree for my charity(now in its 30th year) for many years because he never felt "worthy". And then finally he accepted the award ONLY if he could give the handsome honorarium to a wounded veteran so the vet could help buy a van outfitted for disabled people. What a human being Bill was. The NBA should try and remember him somehow, but it's likely they wont, not with a permanent honor. Because Bill was and will always be hard to quantify with any one award. So whether they do or don't remember Bill, is not really the point I guess. The fact is Bill will be remembered by millions as an original, a joyful soul, who lived every aspect of his life with wonder, passion, and that unquantifiable quality..joy. I have a painting Bill signed for me, that he only posed for if it included John Wooden in the painting. It's a dual painting of Bill and his coach. I see it on my wall now. The inscription says this: "To Roy, thanks for life. Beyond here, lies nothing". That's SOOOO Bill. And so I say today, Bill, thank YOU for (your) LIFE. Beyond here, lies your memory of everything you represented...and it's not nothing. Bill attended close to 1,000 Grateful Dead concerts in his life. He actually played congas on stage with the band several times including one concert at the Pyramid's in Egypt. Last night I found a lyric to a famous "Dead" song, and I want to end this post with those lyrics. Here's what he quoted from that song. "Thank you, and some other things to remember, because there’s a lot going on, We used to play for silver, now we play for life, Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right, I used to be a lost sailor, away too long at sea, now, I’m a tiger in a trance, a saint of circumstance, I sure don’t know what I’m going for, but I’m going to go for it for sure, there’s no time to lose, The first days are the hardest days, don’t worry about it, when life looks like easy street, there’s danger at your door, what I want to know is—are you kind, and will you come with me, it all rolls into one, but nothing comes for free, it’s all about the rhythm, good luck, shine on, thank you, BW.   --------------------------------------------------------------- WOW. Exactly.
