For some reason after hearing Manny's comment the other day about "Who cares? its not the end of the world... Theres always next year." I went into deep thought about how our team goes about things. I am sick and tired of that asinine Mission statement the Yankee Brass has been putting out every friggin spring and throughout the season " This organizations mission is to bring back a Championship to the Bronx" and what not... I understand you gotta think big but, isnt this every contending teams mission? Like no one wants to win. EVERYONE WANTS A RING !!! do they expect to win a WS every year? I dont understand why they cant just let the players play, let the managers manage and so forth. Steinbrenner issuing cheap shots to get his players fired up, Levine & co giving Torre extra motivation with that Tool contract... i think the game is hard enough as is. Put the best team on the field and let the chips fall where they may. If i wasnt a Yankee fan id laugh at that Mission statement every friggin year cause its just so stupid... Everyone wants to win!!! This organization has become all about the money and it hasnt gotten us anywhere. theres no fire, no heart because of the money... Greed is prevalent... greed with FA, with championships... with everything. they feel like just cause they spend 200 mil on FA they cant ever lose another WS, and the truth is we cant even make it there. Until this team regains some of that Humanity, every season will be a like the last 3 or worse. No amount of money you pay any player(s) is going to assure you that when its crunch time, theyre gonna come thru for you.... That the true hunger inside all of them will show his face and gut it out. Slowly but surely this team has been losing its edge, something that money cant buy.
