I hope those Yankee fans enjoyed their sh*tburger tonight.

I normally dont root for Cleveland unless they're playing the Yanks.

He should be a free agent right around the time that Pudge can't catch any more, right?

May I remind you of a man I like to call bob Wickman?

The only way this could be sweeter if it was at the hands of our beloved Tigers or the Boston Red Sox

After chiding our beloved Tigers for losing 4 straight to Boston, one smr-nj is conspicuously absent from this thread. :classic:

Conspicuously absent? I'm right here............ It's not like I disappeared for days, just overnight. (the old 'sleep' thing, you know?) :cheeky:

That was beyond ridiculous last night. Everytime I switched back to see what the score was, it would jump by 3 runs.... 3-0, 6-0, 9-0, 12-0, 15-0.........

I stopped switching it to the YES channel after it hit 16-0.

But whether you lose 22-0 or 1-0, it's still just one loss.

It's just one HELL of a loss. ha. a MAJOR ***=kicking, for sure.

If the Yankee team isn't embarassed by this, I'd be surprised. They'd better shake off the cobwebs, especially their pitching staff.

Now I'd like to leave you all with some words of wisdom from my paisan, Yogi.....

"It ain't over til it's over".

(... and it ain't over yet, guys. Yanks still in first place.)

Who do the Yankees start for game 1 of a playoff series?

Their rotation has been a huge disappointment this season. Unless at least 1 of the starters steps up, I don't see the Yankees getting past the first round.

He seems to be the best option at this point. Yankee fans can't feel good about that scenerio.

Just imagine... every team in the league passed on (within the last 4 months) the pitcher that may start game 1 of a playoff series for the Yankees.

Javier Vazquez has been a complete disaster since the All Star Break. His fastball doesn't have any pop on it -- and his breaking stuff looks like batting practice. Thank God I traded Vazquez and Kazmir for Matt Clement in my fantasy league yesterday. The Yankees should release Loaiza after his gutless performance last night. Esteban was lobbing 82 mph heaters to the Tribe.

Mel, Joe, & co. keep saying that Javy's "stuff" looks OK in the bullpen, etc....... but jeez... get him in a game, and they say his "stuff's" problem is location.

Whatever... right now it stinks.

As far as Loaiza, I say give the schmoe a metro card and send him on his merry way.

Come one, come all and witness the beginning of the end of the once mighty Yankee dynasty!

In a short series, the Yankees are toast. Only a healthy Kevin Brown can save them. And a "healthy Kevin Brown" is an oxymoron.

Kruk was on Loiaza's arse on "Baseball Tonight". I didn't see the game, but he claims Esteban "quit" on the team and gave up in the game.

Yikes on CJ's ERA. Those are crap numbers coming out of the pen. Hate to say it, but I don't think the Yanks will do it this year with the guys they have on the bench and in the bullpen.

I was surprised that the Yanks traded for Loaiza in the 1st place. He was not, IMO, that much better an alternative than Contreras. It seems that Big Stein is pulling a 1980s repeat. Wins a few WS, then abandons the farm system to try to stay on top.
