expobill: how the hell was this green-lit?
The Bestest: I'm not usually fatalistic, but I'm close to saying turn out the lights ont he Yankees' chances this year. With the signings of Feliciano and Soriano to suppliment Joba and Mo, the Yankees were supposed to have THE bullpen to end all bullpens. Now we have Wheel of Starters, while we hope they can maintain a lead (tough chore with Mr. "Infield Grounders are hits.. sometimes!" leading off) long enough to get to Mo, who certainly isn't getting any younger. Not that it matters, since the Yankees are playing for a wild card spot at best, given their complete incapacity to beat the Red Sox this year (1-7 against them thus far, with 5 of those games coming at home, all losses). Hell, if not for the Orioles both occupying the spot and graciously spotting the Yankees 6 of their wins, we'd be looking at them in the division basement.
FriarReb98: \They're playing this tonight, why?
Broktun: expobill: how the hell was this green-lit?Well, the Yankees are like the Cowboys. Everyone loves them or hates them.A slightly witty headline, Star Wars reference, and voilà.Greenlight.Broktun | Second greenlight in two weeks.
The Bestest: ..and oh look, Cervelli E2 on a throw to second. That hasn't happened since.. it happened twice yesterday.
hbk72777: The day Lee signed with Philly was the day I knew they'd be a wild card at best.
expobill: jeez, nice replies for the comment, none on the pic?
LessO2: hbk72777: The day Lee signed with Philly was the day I knew they'd be a wild card at best.Which has little to nothing to do with the awful bullpen and injuries there.But if you feel better saying that, go right ahead.
robsul82: Well, I like Robertson and I like Pendleton. Pendleton-Robertson-Mariano is not what I expected, but hey.
The Bestest: You forgot Lefty Specialist Boone Logan.. and Luis Ayala
LessO2: But if you feel better saying that, go right ahead.
FriarReb98: Just saw that first pitch is supposed to be at 10:30, or around when the 7th inning stretch usually is in a Sox-Yanks game....\They're playing this tonight, why?
mrtoadswildride: I believe this is according to Jeremy Remy
mrtoadswildride: So the answer is that they will be awake anyway, they'd rather play it tonight than a double header tomorrow or on some off day later in the year...it's only a small disruption to game day routines, but they don't loose any sleep waiting until 10pm.
adp1215: good, he sux ass anyway.
FriarReb98: mrtoadswildride: I believe this is according to Jeremy RemyOkay, I give. Mom grew up with his family and even she doesn't know who the fark Jeremy Remy is.....\she does know a Gerald Remy though\\she took dance lessons with him at his aunt & uncle's dance school
