Post anything related to baseball. If it doesn't fit in the Yankees Discussion forum, it fits here.
The purpose of this thread will be to discuss Joe Torre's performance with the Dodgers and somehow link his managerial decisions there to retroactively apply to his stint with the Yankees.
I'll start with "Kemp v. Pierre: Why is Kemp getting 50% more PAs than Pierre and what effect does that have on the 1996-2007 Yankees?"
What Torre is doing right now has no bearing whatsoever on his tenure with the Yankees. I am waiting for these allegedly egregious mistakes that Torre made while...
Just reported by ESPN
Seems like a fairly risky deal considering his health and behavior
He'll have some interesting exchanges with Lou
1 year deal with incentives...salary not announced yet.
Since he is a free agent, and the yanks are looking for a centerfielder maybe they should be looking to Baldelli as a possible replacement for Melky. I know that he has some health issues, but if he can successfully be treated with medication he may be a good fit.
I know that this is a long shot but stranger things have happened in the past with players.;)
How the mighty have fallen...
Wow, one hell of a bargain for a .900 OPS guy in his prime
Pretty vomit-inducing. I guess Rowand hits cleanup by default? Or will we see Ray Durham back in that slot?
C: B. Molina
1B: D. Ortmeier
2B: Ray Durham
3B: R. Aurilia
SS: O. Vizquel
LF: D. Roberts
Not sure of the dollar value
He is 34 and known to have excellent control
I mean think about it, if he sits out the last 2 months like were led to beleive then Boston doesnt pick up his option obviously and no other team would want him because he didnt do anything the last 2 months of the season.
Of course he wouldve played and Boston probbaly wins another title and everything is ok again next spring training.
I mean Manny did the same thing every year. This wasnt the first time he sat out games with the Yankees in July. What about in 03 when he was in the...
I checked to see if anyone started a thread on this and didn't find one so I hope I'm not duplicating effort here.
Anyway, I watched the newly launched MLB Network yesterday and I was pretty impressed with it. I watched a kinescope recording of Don Larson's 1956 World Series Perfect Game. Bob Costas hosted it and had Larson and Yogi Berra in studio with him giving their insights of the game.
It was amazing to watch. To see all of those stars like Mickey Mantle, Duke Snyder, Pee Wee...
Was actually a really nice guy. Spoke to me about the Yankees for a good 30 minutes.
Looks like Jeff Moorad will leave Arizona to head the group that buys the Padres:
The brother of former Chicago Cubs catcher Henry Blanco has been killed in Venezuela.
Police believe that 39-year-old Carlos Simon Blanco was murdered by kidnappers after they abducted him on Sunday in Guarenas, a suburb of Caracas.
Police found the victim's bullet-riddled body on Monday.
Official Angels release:
2 years plus a club option
Looks like they got Fuentes on the cheap
so, with the texiera signing i feel almost ashamed to be a yankee fan. i've loved this team since i was born and it's not about to stop, but i can't help but think things are getting ridiculous.
we've had a really high payroll for years, but i think it's time to change. when one team can go out and get the top 3 free agents on the market and pay what, $60 million a year for them, things have to change. now i know some teams grossly underpay and drive their teams into the ground, but $60...
