The Yankees ran into the best team in the AL.

If you're A-Rod, you take the shot in the butt and your cousin gives it to you.

The "Binder" must not be telling them to hit HRs.

Well, a lot of their regular starters are coming off of the DL finally, so they are probably clean since they had to come back through AAA which is being tested more often than the majors.  Don't worry, they'll be back in normal form soon.

Red Sox 41-26
A's 40-27

But don't worry, the Orioles will give you a chance to be tied with them tonight as long as your team holds up their end of the deal.
 
2013-06-13 12:22:30 PM
When the Red Sox lose later today and we sweep the Yanks we'll be tied at 41-27

I had to laugh at the YES announcers yesterday, as they decried the criminal injustice of not receiving 80+ RBIs from their corner outfielders, like it was a birthright unfairly withheld. This is the result of building a team that is old, overpaid and injury-prone.

The Yankees are known for attempting to build flawless teams with a star at every position. That's great if you can sustain it, but with the Yankees' new "austerity" (snicker) program, y'all are gonna experience some painful and disappointing rebuilding over the next several seasons. Welcome to what the rest of the league deals with on an annual basis.

This won't be a problem for true Yankee fans (I include you in this number, Rex_Banner, you're cool), but the bandwagoners and front-runners that give Yankee fans a bad (and mostly undeserved) reputation are gonna drop off like satiated ticks off a hound dog.

Welcome to what the rest of the league deals with on an annual basis.


Since the end of last season (hell, since the ALDS with B'more) I've held that 2013 was gonna be a "last hurrah" year for the Yankees before heading into an honest-to-goodness rebuilding phase 2014-2016.
When the plague of injuries hit in spring training, that mood shifted to "well, so much for that.. Let's go third place! *clap clap clap-clap-clap*".
When the Island of Ancient Misfit Toys lineup started way overperforming in April and May, it shifted again to "oh.. well, me might just pull this out yet".

Now? Well right now I'm in a weird place. I have zero expectations for this team this year. Wins are met with mere nods of approval instead of WHOOHOO!s and losses are met with eyerolls or muted disappointed headshakes instead of the usual remote-throwing, John-Sterling-cardboard-cutout-strangling rage.
Maybe it's because the Red Sox are flying so high that I'm not obsessing over the standings (though I still update my hand-drawn AL East standings graph daily). I just wanna see Ichiro's final years on the field and hope he doesn't embarrass himself (despite the current numbers, I absolutely love the fact that Ichiro is on the Yankees). I wanna see my favorite player (Jeter) back on the field and.. also hope he doesn't embarrass himself. I want the A-Rod bullshiat to go away. I appreciate 2009, but really, I'd actually prefer to see him not come back.

This is all probably a tl;dr rambling and musings of an admittedly entitled Yankees fan, but this is healthy to get out there.. cathartic.

Just like this season.

See, this is why I like (most) Yankee fans. Sometimes I wish I was an East-Coaster, because the fan base is at heart, baseball fans and I love talking baseball with knowledgeable people.

A's fans are a rabid bunch, but we just don't have the numbers to fill a stadium on a daily basis. I kinda like it that way because it makes the beer lines shorter, and you can get to know your neighbors, but it does contribute to the A's low-budget quandary.

I almost dread the A's getting a new stadium with the attendant price increases and crowds. Right now, I feel protective like a fisherman is over his best fishing holes. This team deserves better, but I'd hate to see the essence of what makes the A's the scuffling A's lost.

Besides I just really like the Coliseum.

If this sounds disjointed, it's because I have a five-year-old niece clamoring to use my computer.

idesofmarch: Robinson Cano: "Hmm... hang on a sec."


Yeah, that's about how long it took to get outta there. Cano makes up for lack of run production from the corner outfielders, by bonus run production from the 2nd base position. He's the one Yankee I fear.

How about that play at the plate just now?

Catcher Stewart tagged Jaso at the plate with his glove, but unfortunately, had already removed the ball and had it in his throwing hand. Oops.

Same here. I have a LOT of memories associated with the place, and something about the ugly, unadorned concrete and the industrial neighborhood captures the gritty (insert Christopher Nolan joke here) spirit of the East Bay. The fans that come are die-hard and loud.

Giants fans like to mock our stadium by calling it the Mausoleum. I actually like the name. It is indeed the Oakland Mausoleum. It's where the Rangers' divisional hopes come to die.

Cagey B: Giants "fans"


FTFY.

Hell, I even liked Candlestick. At least the fans cared about baseball. Now, it's all about garlic fries and panda hats. The Coliseum was awesome when I was a kid, because my mom would let me roam wherever I wanted. With only 3,000 fans, she could pick me out of the crowd no matter where in the stadium I went.

The only improvement the Coliseum needs is to remove Mount Davis and restore the bleachers.

Thanks to *ahem* budget constraints, the only player that the Yankees signed to a multi-year deal this past offseason was Ichiro Suzuki, who was cooked in 2011. You just KNOW that they did that partially in the hopes that he'd get to 3,000 in pinstripes - but that is not going to happen unless they sign him for 2015. Please dear God don't let them sign him for 2015.......

I'm just going to assume that "an asshole" somehow autocorrected to "cool". That's the only way this sentence makes any sense.

To be fair, Granderson was a freak injury that could have happened to anyone, regardless of age.  The Yankees are going to be fine, for the most part.  Cashman must be a magician with his ability to get such overachieving play out of fringe MLB players for stop-gap solutions, and even paying ARod 25-30m still puts them miles ahead of most teams in ability to spend each year.

When your father is Lucius Malfoy (as played by Hank Steinbrenner), of course you'll have the best magician's wand. The trick is to get magic out of the cheap-ass balsa wood wand Ron Weaselly (as played by Billy Beane) has to deal with.

While I certainly give Beane credit for fielding a winning team on a ramen budget from the get-go, you gotta give Cashman (and his scouts) credit for this year. He was all-but-told "no free agents" this year, and by all rights, this team should be barely .500 now, not chasing the Red Sox. Hell, the Angels are paying most of Wells' contract.
