They're Baaaaaaaack Too
Wednesday, November 21, 2007
Goodness gracious great balls of fire, my lovelies.

After all the uproar over the changes that took place at the beginning of the offseason, things are beginning to fall into place quite quickly. In fact, the 2008 crew is actually shaping up to look... well, a lot like it looked in 2007.

In 2007, Jorge Posada caught 138 games. In 2008, he'll be back behind the plate.

In 2007, A-Rod hit 54 homers, had 156 RBI, and made 13 errors at 3rd base. In 2008, he'll be making a f*ckton of money and playing 3rd base again.

In 2007, Mariano Rivera pitched in 67 games, earning 30 saves. In 2008, he'll be pitching to the tune of Enter Sandman for a 14th season.

In 2007, Kevin Long hitting-coached the team to a collective .290 batting average. In 2008, he'll be working with the cream of the crop again... let's shoot for .291 this year, kiddos.

In 2007, Tony Pena parked himself on the first base line to pat baserunners on the ass and send them on stealing missions. In 2008, he'll be right back out there with his butt-patting hand at the ready.

In 2007, Rob Thomson was the "Major League Field Coordinator" for the team (what does that mean? No one knows.) In 2008, he'll be The Girardino's right hand man on the bench.


I am very pro-Girardino, and I sincerely have high hopes for the 2008 season. I like the idea of keeping so much of the core 2007 team together while injecting some fresh blood to shake things up a bit. What the Yankees were missing last year was not talent. It was unity, motivation, attitude... factors that I feel a little shaking up could help. A lot.

    So, now it's just time to resign Viz and to convince good old #46 to not retire.

    Let's hope that we can snag a trade (even if it's Hughes or Kennedy + a position player) for Santana before the Sox do it!

    No....

    ...the Yankees were missing talent.

    That's not to say they weren't loaded with talent...but they were severely lacking in certain areas, namely starting pitching and middle relief. And that's why they lost.

    It has nothing to do with chemistry or unity. Winning breeds chemistry. The Yankees of the late 70s didn't have chemistry. Neither did the A's of the early 70s. They both won a lot.
