What in TARNATION?!
Monday, October 29, 2007
Last week, Torre turned down the Yanks' offer to stick around for another year as manager.

Last night, Scott Boras decided that the 8th inning of the World Series was a good time to announce to the universe that A-Rod was opting out - despite the fact that all signs pointed to a huge extension offer by the Yanks.

Last hour, word breaks that Girardi has been offered the managerial job.

Head spinning. So much to say... must... collect... thoughts.

Oh, and the Sox beat the Rox in a 4-game sweep. In all sincerity, congratulations to them - they deserved it and to be perfectly honest I will admit that it is pretty ridiculous and unfortunate that their accomplishment is going to get a tad lost in the A-Rod hoopla.

That said, back to the A-Rod hoopla. I am so, so disappointed my lovelies. I have made no secret of the fact that I love the man and have been so hopeful that the Stein and Steinettes would lock him down. Can we blame the Svengali that is Scott Boras? Can we blame the fans for making him miserable here? Or is he just a greedy bastard that wants to get the most cash he can get?

More to come. Stay tuned.

    "Can we blame the Svengali that is Scott Boras? Can we blame the fans for making him miserable here? Or is he just a greedy bastard that wants to get the most cash he can get?"

    All of the above, as well as Torre leaving with the extra possibilities of Posada/Pettitte/Rivera being gone. Now looks like the time to jump ship in New York before the rebuilding process really begins. Not that the Yankees are going to sink into a perpetual Kansas City/Pittsburgh rebuilding sinkhole, but the guard is changing.

    And congratulations to my Red Sox. Yay, winning.

    I really doubt Torre leaving had anything to do with anything, unless Buck Showalter was coming to replace him. As Mike Vaccaro aptly said, it's always been about ARod and only ARod.

    If it's about money, what other team could pay more than the Yankees? (note, not "want to pay more" but "could pay more").

    Good riddance A-Rod. The Yankees need to spend that money on pitching.

    A-Rod can shove it up his A-ss.

    to which free agent pitchers would the yanks allocate said dollars? The big FA/pitcher season is going to be next year with CC, Johan et al.

    This is damned if you do damned if you dont move. If they do not extend his deal, will there be a backlash from those who already have their season tix for the new stadium? Those seats aren't cheap, and you can bet that those fans aren't going to be there to see Melky Cabrera...

    Hi YankeesChick,

    Thank you for your congratulatory remarks in your post to my Boston Red Sox. The 2007 World Champions. It truley shows me actually how much class you: YankeesChick has!

    We just pray that Arod goes somewhere far, far away from the area and that the Sox make the right move and re-sign the World Series MVP: Mike Lowell!

    I don't want the "A-Rod Curse" in Boston like you just had the past 4 years in NY!

    Good luck with your rebuilding years. I'm sure someday down the road you'll be a contender for the wild card again!

    The "New Order" has taken place! and a dynasty has begun. Boston will dominate the division and the American League for the next several years to come!

    Have a nice winter!

    Adios Moneybags. What a chump. He'll always be looked at as a failure in NY. Let's go shopping for pitching and get back to team ball. Remember Aaron Boone? I hope we get Lowell. He's a baller and he seems willing to listen to Cash Money.

    Beans in Boston there is this little thing called being a sore winner...look it up, or just look in the mirror.

    Word is that Donnie isn't going to come back next year.

    "tampering" is a very dirty word when it comes to baseball dealings, signings and negotiating. a charge very hard to prove, however if Boras has not had "informal discussions" with unnamed execs of unnamed teams about future dealings then A-Rod does not opt out. J.D. Drew redux opt out where charges of tampering were in the air, but impossible to prove.

    As a loyal Yankee fan for over 30 yrs., I have seen a lot of players come and go. I am disappointed that A-Rod opted out and his timing was really embarassing. I think Yankee fans tried to embrace him but his "all about me" attitude made it very difficult for some. "The best player in baseball", maybe, but the Yankees have won many championships without him and they will win many more without him. Hasta la vista, A-Fraud

    I agree with anonymous. Good riddance A-Rod. Yeah, you put up big numbers, but you were also an embarrassment at times (slapping the ball out of 1st basemen's glove, yelling like a bitch to get an infielder to drop the ball, remember?). Take your money, your wife, and your Canadian whore and go away!!

    Yankees Chick,

    You're quoted in Monday's Edition of AM New York in the Sports Section.

    i think it is unfair to assume that it was all about the money wiht him. yeah it is possible that it was, but also, if i were him, i probably wouldnt want to stay either... the fans werent embracing him, they were trying to be nice to get him to not opt out... as you can see from all of thet backlash that has come out since the news broke. if we really liked him and embraced him we as fans would say , "hey it was fun while it lasted".. ad move on because we dont automatically know the reason for anything that has happened... also, for the people who say that alex was a bust in NY, i dont know how exactly 2 MVP's in 4 years is a bust. when ppl say ,"oh arod didnt get us a championship", maybe we should be looking at it like we didnt get him a championship. hes probably going to be the best player ever and we had him on the team for 4 years and got nothing... its not only his fault(yes he takes some blame for crapping out in the post season after 2004 ALCS);look at the "true" yankees Jeter and Posada who dod less than him last year and got NO if any crap for it. you cant saay that we embraced him when we react as we are now and ass we did in 2005 when he did "bad"
