And the Number of Death is...
Wednesday, September 17, 2008
Tres partidos.

With 10 games left to play/butcher, the Yanks' elimination number is down to a meager 3 games. That's right: we're just any combination of 3 Yankees losses and/or wins by anyone ahead of us (D-Rays and Sox in division race, as well as the Twinsies in the WC hunt) from the season actually being over.

Not that it hasn't been over for quite some time now... but the official failure is still going to be hard to take. Its truly a shame, and not just because they're breaking their amazing million-years-in-a-row post-season streak. The true sadness is that they are leaving the old stadium on a sad note, which is just not the Yanks style. The Yankees have made history with broken records, World Series wins, flashy plays, big name players, and a penchant for fanfare - having the final few games at Yankee Stadium mean nothing in terms of season status just seems wrong.

And unexpected! Who would have guessed at the beginning of the year that our team would disintegrate into a pile of FAIL? I suppose our naive belief in Hughsie/IPK did us in. As did Cano.

And the injury gods. Let's blame them - Big Stein does.

    Two stats of the day :- ARod is the first player in MLB History to hit 35 HRs or more in 11 straight years.
    (I was surprised, and must admit to checking Hammerin' Hank's, The Babe's, Say Hey's and even The Barry-roid's Career stats.)

    Many congrats to him.

    Second stat :- IRod has as many stolen bases and walks as Rbi's for the Yanks. A grand score of 3 for each. What does he win you ask? Maybe a new contract if Posada still can't throw to 2nd base. An ugly prospect to look forward to.

    Few congrats to him.

    Hughes stuggled (almost 90 pitches in 4 inns) but he did well in the AAA playoffs, so maybe he just needs some time and experience.

    So, as we look towards better days in the summer (and hopefully fall) of '09, what is everyone's wish list for free agents?

    1) C.C. - if I were him, I would stay in the NL (central or west) because he is phenomenal against the weaker NL line ups.

    2) Texeria - Switch hitting 1B with pop.

    3) Don Zimmer, hey we haven't won since he left damn it!

    If you want to blame anything or anybody put it squarely on the Stienbrenners' and Giradi. Why? It doesn't matter what Hughes or Kennedy will do the next 5 years, neither's total will match Santana for the same period. So, BAD no trade. Also, to come into a great situation as Girardi did and "monkey" with it the way he did that is asking for the end result the Yankees have. The old saying "if it aint broke, dont fix it" certainly applies here. The Yankees showed last year they could produce runs and since this is basically the same team they should have produced this year. Just needed pitching. The blame will go unfairly to Pettitte, Mussina, and Wang. But put Santana to the mix and things would be different even without Wang. Girardi sets up dumb rules to set the stage for alot of bad feelings. Come on!! no candy and only fruit, these are grown men not a bunch of preschoolers playing T-Ball. Junior Boyd NC
