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."

    • Holy moley. 10 HR and 30 RBI… through April 19. 
    • I guess we were watching a different outing. 
    • You try to sign long term Gunnar and GR.  Wait and see on the others. As for Adley?   I would not sign him to a long term contract.  I hate to say it because I love the guy but he just does not seem worth what he is going to ask for imo.
    • I am not worried about Means AS LONG AS HE IS HEALTHY.   Big if.  But he knows what he is doing getting ready for what him is his spring training.  If he does this his first 2 starts or so?    Then I worry.
    • I had never seen him in a live at bat until I saw him at his first spring training at bat this year.  And I mean his very first at bat.   He struck out swinging on like 4 pitches and being honest looked completely over matched.  I remember thinking....."hmmmm that seems odd for a guy so highly touted".   He just seemed like he had no idea what he was doing.   But then I never really saw another live at bat from him again all spring training and he ended up doing pretty well.  However every at bat I have seen of him since he got called up?  Looked like that first spring training at bat.  He looks like my wife trying to hit a major league fastball.  He has no idea what he is doing. I have never seen someone so good against minor league players and yet so bad against major league players.  Just a huge discrepancy.   Has to be psychological.   He looks completely intimidated. 
    • And who is this somebody other than Means or Flarerty that would help us in the playoffs. Also remember Bradish and Grod did not help us in the Playoffs. So I guess It was unwise to wait on those 2. Plus Bradish is hurt and uncertain going foward( a la Means) Yeah you piled on.
    • I will say I am surprised at how utterly useless/helpless JH looks after he got called up.   Not just surprised. Stunned is a better word. This is not an 7th round pick who struggled for years in the minors.   This is the #1 pick from 2 years ago who has dominated his entire life in the game of baseball. Yet he looks like a player in 8th grade playing against seniors in HS.  He can barely make any contact and even his fielding and throwing is very iffy. It is like he took up the game of baseball within the last year.   A complete novice.   This has to be mental because even the worst of the worst can make more contact than he is.  He is FLAILING.   No way that is all physical.    At this point you send him down.   No questions asked.   I was more than willing to let him get through this if he SHOWED ANY SIGNS of life.  But he just doesn't.   He looks pathetic.    Manny Machado he is not.   Send him down for at least 3 months.   Bring up Mayo.  Or anyone really.  It is better than what he is offering.
