B.Q.E. o' the Day: Stein Has Officially Lost Hope
Wednesday, August 13, 2008
First off, let me tell y'all that this gosh darned (insert much fouler language of your choice here) team is literally making me sick to my stomach these days, and that is not an exaggeration. Two 3-run homers served up to Delmon Young in as many games?! The hell?? Leave it to this flailing team to give D-Y a chance to feel like Big Papi for a couple days.

Anyway. Serenity now. Onward to the latest installment of Best. Quote. Ever., this one courtesy of none other than the head honcho himself, Big Stein. It should come as no surprise that with the way they've been playing/failing lately he's getting bitter himself. In fact, he's even sounding like he's resigned himself to the possibility that this may finally be the year that his team has to sit out in October - and he's pinpointed the reason:
"I think it's very simple, we've been devastated by injuries. No team I've ever seen in baseball has been decimated like this. It would kill any team. Imagine the Red Sox without Beckett and Lester. Pitching is 70 percent of the game. Wang won 19 games two straight years. Chamberlain became the most dominating pitcher in baseball. You can't lose two guys like that. We're going to win it next year. If we need to add a top veteran pitcher, we'll do that. We'll do whatever we need to do. Next year we'll be extremely dangerous."
Sounds to me like he's pretty much given up and decided to pin his hopes on next year instead. Somewhat depressing, yes, but at least he's being realistic. And on the bright side, if the Yanks don't find a way to weasel their way into playoff-ville you KNOW The Stein will be all about shelling out the big bucks to sign someone like CC or Tex. Bring it on.

    This season, alas, is over. I just hope we salvage a little of our pride and open the new Yankee Stadium on a tear.

    And, also get rid of that slug, Robinson Cano.

    Gotta love how he pulls out the injury card. Sorry, with this absurd payroll you don't get to use that excuse.

    I agree, Cano has to go. Farnsworth should never have been traded. He, outside of Mo, was the most consistant out of the 'pen.
    I also think a new hitting coach might be in order. These guys should be putting up 5 to 6 runs per game.

    A new hitting coach? One sour year and you want to ditch Kevin Long? It's the players, not the coach.
