    If he can just be decent behind the plate... :jizz:

    I think we're a lock for the playoffs now. We lead Boston by 3.5 games for the division and are up on the Rays by 7 games.
  4. dblplay1212 New Member

    Yea, it's all about getting healthy in the next 3 weeks, now.
  5. Stromboli1 woolly bully, please shave your jaws fromage

    the Tigers are going to be tough in a short series, I like our chances with the Rangers, but they can hit though.
  6. dblplay1212 New Member

    Yea, I'm leaning towards rather playing the Rangers. With the Tigers, either you have to beat Verlander or win the other 3. Neither are easy. Of course, it's not like we'd have a slouch matching up with Verlander in those games. CC could easily outpitch him on a given night and it wouldn't be overly shocking.

    Three pictures worth a thousand words

    The Yankees passed along some professional photos of last night’s rookie hazing. It’s rare that every single outfit is hilarious, but these were pretty good selections. Whoever made the decision to make the two tall guys Milli Vanilli … bravo! At one point, Jesus Montero was trying to dance like MC Hammer, and pictures will never fully explain just how hilarious it was to watch Austin Romine try to figure out how to get his costume on.

    Andrew Brackman and Dellin Betances as Milli Vanilli
    Brandon Laird as Slash
    Hector Noesi as Prince
    Austin Romine as Madonna
    George Kontos as George Michael
    Jesus Montero as MC Hammer

    I look forward to those photos every year. Great stuff.

    Big Man staying with the Yanks :chatzy:

    and all the 'analysts'(curt shilling) were all making the case for a month on why he would leave, must have forgot what Franchise he was talking about
  10. dblplay1212 New Member

    Yea, I'm ok with the deal. Basically added two years at $25M each.

    So only way we get out of the 2nd year is if CC gets hurt in 2016 or becomes shit and is in the bullpen.
  11. JBF76 Celtics, Redsox, Redskins, Ohio St. Football

    Bro, you are a great fan and all but its not the franchise that is keepng him in NY.. its the ridiculous dough they are paying him for when he is going to suck that no one in their right mind would pay him. Now, dont get me wrong Schilling is a fucking clown but lets not pretend like he stayed because he wants to be a yankee.
  12. dblplay1212 New Member

    To be fair, that big check is from the franchise. I think what he was saying was that guys like Schilling should have taken into account that the Yankees would pay him more than anyone else. All that said, from all accounts, CC and his wife love NYC. Combine that with the Yankees offering as much or more than anyone and it's not a shock that he's staying.
  13. beerleagueman New Member

    there were rumors Texas was going to offer him a huge deal and I'm sure maybe teams like the Cubs and Angels could have been in the mix....just was surprised to hear guys on MLB Network and ESPN thinking he was leaving. but who knows if any offer would have matched the Yankees but I'm sure 1 would have been close enough if he was unhappy and wanted out
  14. JBF76 Celtics, Redsox, Redskins, Ohio St. Football

    Those last 2 yrs of the deal are going to be brutal.. 25 mill a yr for an over the hill former ace is going to be tough, but they HAD to sign him so I dont blame the yankees for giving him what he wanted.
  15. dblplay1212 New Member

    We'll see. He'll be 36 when the deal ends if the option for the 2nd year is picked up. It's not like he's signed through 40+ like Arod. 36 is older, but not THAT bad. As long as he keeps his weight close to where it has been the last couple years, I think he'll be fine.

  17. Stromboli1 woolly bully, please shave your jaws fromage

    there are rumblings out there that Cashman is talking to CJ Wilson's agent. I don't want any part of that guy because I think he's overrated and is a terrible postseason pitcher. I'd rather improve our staff by trade or go to a six man rotation in June.
  18. beerleagueman New Member

    my first reaction to CJ Wilson was hell no but he wouldn't be expected to be a #1 like in Texas, and having more lefties is a strength at Yankee Stadium
  19. dblplay1212 New Member

    Really depends on what we'd be paying Wilson.
  20. Sam Elliott Job title: Assistant Bouncer at the Double Deuce

    What about going after Lincecum?
  21. Clutch thanks

    big time Timmy Jim <3
  22. dblplay1212 New Member

    What's his deal? Is SF offering arbitration? I'd love to add him to the staff.
  23. Stromboli1 woolly bully, please shave your jaws fromage

    Lincecum would scare the shit out of me if the Yankees traded for him
  24. Clutch thanks

    I would love to have him
  25. Sam Elliott Job title: Assistant Bouncer at the Double Deuce

    Someone said SF should be looking to trade him so they don't weigh down their payroll with what I assume will be a mega contract and trade him to the Yankees for more pieces to fill out their roster.

    Mariano Rivera, while he waits to find out if he needs a surgical procedure done on his vocal cords, speculated that 2012 could be the final year of his career.

    All season players made their case for postseason awards. See who was deemed best of the best in 2011.

    "I don't know what will happen," said the New York Yankees closer, who turns 42 next week and has one year and $15 million remaining on his contract.

    "I have one year left. I might call it over. I will know more in spring training."

    Bothered for a month by a condition that has turned his voice into a raspy whisper, Rivera has been to one doctor and will get a second opinion Monday.

    "Every time I talk it gets worse and worse," Rivera said Tuesday at his New Rochelle restaurant, 42 Clubhouse Grill, where his foundation paired with HOPE Community Services to feed 42 children and their families Thanksgiving turkey meals.

    Rivera did not know what was causing the problem, but vocal cords sometimes sprout blisters or polyps that need to be removed. When it was mentioned that shaving of the vocal cords sounded like a simple procedure, Rivera smiled.

    "When you are talking about surgery, there is nothing simple," Rivera said.

    Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is not allowed to talk about non-baseball injuries and refused to comment.

    Sources: Yanks, Garcia reach deal

    By Buster Olney
    ESPN The Magazine
    The New York Yankees have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with veteran pitcher Freddy Garcia, according to sources.

    SportsNation: Free Agency

    [IMG] How long of a contract would you give Albert Pujols? Who's the best free agent pitcher? Can you name all of baseball's biggest contracts? Vote!
    The Yankees had been surveying the free-agent market for pitchers. General manager Brian Cashman met with Bob Garber, the agent for C.J. Wilson and Roy Oswalt. However, team insiders told's Wallace Matthews that the Yankees are skittish on both pitchers.
    Sources told ESPN that there is a quiet confidence within the organization that Phil Hughes will have a strong bounce-back year in 2012.
    The Yankees will continue to have talks about available starting pitchers, the sources said, and they could sign some low-cost veterans, as they did last winter when they worked out agreements with Bartolo Colon and Garcia.
    Garcia was 12-8 with a 3.62 ERA in 25 starts for the Yankees last season. The 35-year-old righty struck 96 and walked 45 in 146 2/3 innings.
  28. MikeDanger That has some wang to it

    Don't mind keeping Garcia.

    Do we really want Garza?
  29. Clutch thanks

    do not want
  30. Doc Louis High Potentate

    Yeah CC definitely likes the restaurants and food vendors. Hard for him to get a meal on his way to eat a meal like he can do in NYC.
  31. MikeDanger That has some wang to it

    But we're forgetting they sell Cap'n Crunch everywhere, so he could really get his 3 box a day quota anywhere.
  32. IrishLAX2 Nation's Top Footballers

    Sox get a shill of a coach :smug:
  33. MikeDanger That has some wang to it

    I loved Bobby V until he went to the wrong side. Now I shall hate him and hope for his untimely death.
  34. beerleagueman New Member

    don't have his numbers but he seemed to be a gamer pitching against the Sox when he was with the Rays
  35. beerleagueman New Member

    looks like Yanks are shopping AJ and will pick up 8 mil of his salary
  36. dblplay1212 New Member

    From LoHud:

    LOL @ the A's price for Gio.
  37. beerleagueman New Member

    heir apparent to Jeter at SS? :gfa:

    @Buster_ESPN Buster Olney

    Source: Hanley Ramirez's rep asked the Marlins for a restructured deal. MIA upset with this, will now be looking to trade Hanley (more).
    7 minutes ago via web
  38. Clutch thanks

    thought of that
  39. Sam Elliott Job title: Assistant Bouncer at the Double Deuce

    Interested to see where they want to put this Japanese SS we won the bid for today
  40. Sam Elliott Job title: Assistant Bouncer at the Double Deuce

    Yeah good lord that is a joke of a trade demand. I had Gio on my FB team and he blew ass, I don't want him anywhere near the Yankees if we have to give up Montero.
  41. dblplay1212 New Member

    No clue. Either AAA or they are really shopping Nunez and the Japanese guy will be the backup SS?
  42. Sam Elliott Job title: Assistant Bouncer at the Double Deuce

    I saw an article today saying he was going to be our utility infielder next year, another thought he would be our main back up for Jeter if he went down with injury and his replacement for a few years should he retire. He's 29 so I imagine there are a few good years left.
  43. beerleagueman New Member

    is the Japanese SS sure thing major league ready on most teams or is he borderline? just wondering if he is a legit long term option in a few years at SS
  44. DannyO'brienIsOurSatan Formerly Canefin561

    Lol Marlins thread is twice as long as Yankees thread
  45. Stromboli1 woolly bully, please shave your jaws fromage


    no really the Yankees thread has been splintered throughout TMB as series threads by DBL
  46. dblplay1212 New Member

  47. beerleagueman New Member

    good stuff, sounds like he could probably start for maybe half the teams if I read that correctly
  48. dblplay1212 New Member

    Hell, who knows? He could be Ichiro and he could be Irabu. Guess we'll see.
  49. dblplay1212 New Member

    haha. Like someone said earlier, we have a thread for every series during the season. Makes it more fun (at least to me) bc the other fans join in and we all shoot the shit about the game.
