A-Roid is having an absolutely awful post season. Jeter looks like a shell of his former self.

And outside of Phil freakin Hughes...their rotation looks human.

Let's hope that the Rangers outbid the Yanks for Cliff Lee. The Yankees have so much age on that roster, it'll be fun to watch them shrivel up over the next few seasons.

I hope one day a player stands up and says "I don't want to play for the MFYankees. I want to beat the MFYankees."

I know, I know.

Maybe Lee will say "I beat those mooks easy. Why would I want to play for them?" :2yay-thumb::rofl::smile11:

Meltdown from the Yankee scout.com board

I simply am reserving my opinions on certain players as a whole....

People will have me lynched if I say that I wouldnt resign Jeter nor Posada.....but I am leaning that way....

We need a power/high ave hitter that can hit lefthanded pitching.....for SURE....whether it is a platoon player or starter I dont care....

We need to either resign Wood, or get another definiteive bridge to MO...that is for SURE...

and we need LEE.....and another decent pitcher......for SURE....

Bring Jesus up and play him....

and play Nunez a bit more too.......

Other than that I am not reaching out for more, cause money can only buy some things....it cant always buy clutch hitting........but another thing I would do........

Trade Burnett for anything right about now, eat some money he ruins momentum during the regular season.

Trade whover....pick your posion.......any one of the starting outfielders to free up more money to get that catalyst, that true catylst at the top of the order, I am not sold on Gardner....and go get Crawford.....

That is what I want.......and if Marte is not fully healthy, u gotta geta decent left handed reliever as well....

Holy cow, you'd think their team just finished in last place.

The Yankees look like a collection of fossils rather than a baseball team.

The Yankees of the 90's were young and passionate. They could get riled up for the post-season every year. These Yankees have already seen it all. It looks like 1 WS is enough for A-Rod and Teixeira (neither of whom have bothered to show up).

I was laughing so hard when a washed up Berkman was shown flailing away in the 8th inning with men on. And there was Jeter, just staring out of the dugout with the expression of "Why did we sign this guy again? Cashman needs to get better players next year."

    • The sneaky thing about O’Hearn is how many loud outs he made against the shift. With no infielders in RF, I am curious what he’ll do. Not saying he is going to be some kind of star, but perhaps a useful piece. 
    • Eh, it's an overpay, but I don't hate O'Hearn as a backup. There's enough there to suggest he may be helped by no shifts and his EV and hard hit %s are decent. I'm betting he could have waited for him to clear waivers, and signed him to a minor league/major league split contract. I think Elias really wants a left-handed hitting first baseman but he has Montcastle right now.
    • I have seen on conversations a lot of the high paid MLB players build their own facilities with all the 'tools'.  Driveline's expertise is the utilization of those tools, data analysis, and developing the training plans for their clients.  Players that utilize them often become coaches/trainers themselves if they can't reach the highest level.  Thus the 'driveline' culture and thoughts grow.  Of course, others out there also believe Driveline and similar programs to be the problem and not the cure.  Players ultimately buy into what/who they think will help them be better.  Internal or External to the team they play for. The MiLB clients at Driveline are likely the ones trying to improve themselves above and beyond the 'coaches and staff' of the major league minor league coaches.  Ones that have enough signing bonus and commitment to live in Seattle or Phoenix in the offseason.  Another facility in AZ is called PUSH PERFORMANCE.  The top facilities also have Physical therapists on staff.   Curious with changes in technology and scouting how many college kids that don't go to Cape Cod league would choose to develop somewhere like Driveline vs playing summer ball.  If they or their folks have the $ to invest.  Similar conversation to stick to the school/team staff or look outside to improve yourself. Likely two types of offseason programs.  Pitchers and Position Players.  After the season, just about everyone needs some time off.  Likely 3-4 weeks.  Use November and December to build muscle mass and strength.  Use January to take that new strength and apply it to improve speed/quickness.  Then 2-3 weeks start with the more precise swing timing, pitch location, with Live AB's etc.   I don't think players are using Spring Training to get ready for the season.  I think the off season is to get ready, build on it during Spring training (trying to stay healthy) in order to improve your level for the season.
    • Eastern shore MD is some of the cheapest water front property available in the US.  If he’s a country boy, as I imagine he is, he will like the area.  Imagine having a nice duck hunting lodge could be quite attractive, and as you mentioned a solid way to diversify.  Have to imagine Boras schools his clients on that. 
    • I haven’t had a chance to see Cowser play in person yet.  I agree Mayos talent is off the charts.  Size, arm Strength and raw power at his age  put him on a very elite bracket.  I’m pulling for him to put it all together.  He just makes me a little nervous to get too excited.  I’ll happily eat crow if he mashes and will be right there rooting for him.  
    • I agree whole heartedly that it depends on the individual.    Odor for instance was not great statistically but I do believe is presence in clubhouse last year helped us a lot especially with the young Latin players. 
    • Mona Lisa does have a moustache if you get up really close.
