It's Official: DBG Just Bought China

The LoHud Yankees Blog » Yankees reach agreement with Chinese

"Japan?" check!
"Taiwan?" check!
"All those other yeller fellers?"

The New York Yankees and the Chinese Baseball Association held a press conference today in Beijing, China to announce a landmark Memorandum of Understanding that for the first time formalizes a strategic alliance between a Major League Baseball Club and the Chinese Baseball Association.

Hi ho, hi ho, it's eggrolls now we roll

Bobby is a Frackin' GOD

New York Daily News - Yankees - Murcer full of cheer:
"'I'm feeling great. Everything is going along fine with no repercussions or setbacks,' Murcer said. 'It was great having Andy come over, although I'm sure one of the reasons was because Roger is out of town and he didn't have anybody to work out with.'"

Sometimes Lupica is the Dumbest Fuck on the Planet

New York Daily News - Mike Lupica - Mike Lupica's Shooting From The Lip: Joe, Alex on hot seat:
"It is interesting how these things work out sometimes. Joe Torre's fate and A-Rod's fate are suddenly intertwined. "

Yeah, right, Mikey. Uncle Joe walks away with his number already retired, and his place in Pinstripe history assured. A-Hole, even if he has a monster season, and the Yanks go on to a World Series victory, is still fucking A-Hole; unworthy to be Jeter's goddamn caddy.

He Deserves to Go Out on HIS Terms

New York Daily News - Bernie torn on future

He was a major cog in the Machine Team. Someone go wake Darth Boss up and tell him, simply, "no one is allowed to wear Bernie's number anymore. Period. Like Paulie's "21."


You pissed me to fuckin' heaven's gate they way you--the org--treated Tino when he was leaving. Do it again, especially since Bernie is borne and bred, and I will personally pay for a "Bomb the Bombers" campaign that will make the frackin jihadis look like pikers.... And I'm curently only thinking of killing you in the press.

Don't be dicks about this. Give Bernie his due. Or you will fucking rue.

DBG would make Milton Friedman smile

The new Skankee stadium project is being funded properly in my opinion. DGB is putting up $800M of his own money to pay for it. NYC is putting up the rest ($200M) for parking and the park around the stadium. In 1996 NYC was raking in $7.7M per year just off the Skanks. That figure has to be doubled by now (don't have the latest numbers). Figuring an increase in revenues once the stadium is opened NYC will be in the black by 2019 and from then on around 80% of the revenue will be a net gain (20% for repairs).

On the other hand, the stadium being built near me is going to be a HUGE cost overrun. It's being built in the worst part of the city with nearly ALL funding coming from the taxpayers. I can't believe I'm saying this: I agree with Ralph Nader

The only place gummint should be involved in ANY type of sports is in giving tax breaks to the team. Here's a 2003 breakdown of the stadium deals and how much 'public' money was put into them.

Yankees Decide to Get Some Takeout - MLB - Yankees seek working agreement with China baseball:
A contingent of executives from the New York Yankees will fly to China next week with the hope of concluding ongoing negotiations on a working agreement with the China Baseball Association. This could lead to the Yankees dispatching coaches and trainers to work with players in China, and perhaps, in years to come, beginning a baseball academy.

According to a major league executive who has been briefed on the organization's intentions, the Yankees -- operating in consultation with Major League Baseball -- have been in negotiations for seven months on this deal. The Yankees' goal is to get their brand into the world's most populated nation, and put themselves in position, down the road, to scout talent, while working with members of the CBA to improve the state of baseball in China.

As the article notes, this doesn't mean any other team is blocked from pursuing the same kind of deal, but let's be serious; those mad BossBucks can put a Yankee cap on so many Chinese heads that "Yankees" and "baseball" will be friggin' synonyms.

Reason # 7,329 Why New Yorkers are Despicable

In the absence of baseball games, what better way is there to keep "the rivalry" alive than to needlessly shit on New Yorkers in general?! So, I present Exhibit A for the official Complaint: evidence of a "holier than thou" New York persona. The Attitude. Look at this tool... he undoubtedly possesses The Attitude. You know what the NYC Attitude is.... My favorite quote is, "Why is a British man telling me what an American Idol is? I'm not shy -- I'm from The Bronx."

Yes, Ian, you are indeed... you are indeed.

No Longer the "Whipping Boy"

Cashman glad he's not Boss' puppet anymore
The Yankees have gone six seasons without winning the World Series, a baseball eternity for a team of their stature. But Kevin Towers cannot remember a time when Brian Cashman has been happier.

'He had gotten to a point where he was beyond frustrated,' said Towers, the general manager of the San Diego Padres and one of Cashman's closest friends in the game. 'He was taking the heat, but it was for things that were beyond his control.

'But when I talk to him now, he's a different man. Brian is doing what he wants to do, and I have to say, it's not good for the rest of us.'

They ain't reported yet....but

Compare and contrast Skanks and Sox lineups as of today...

Starting pitching: Sox
Relief pitching: Sox
Closer: Skanks
Infield offense: Skanks
Outfield offense: Skanks
Infield defense: Sox (just)
Outfield defense: Skanks

I fully expect DBG to make his whipping boy get some pitching before the start of the season. Who knows who'll be starting in right for the Sox. Me? I'd love to start Hinske in right, Willy Mo in center and Just Drop Drew.

Winter Doldrums

The middle of January is a cold and depressing time in which anxious baseball fans wait for that fateful day when pitchers and catchers report to spring training. Men tend to gain a few pounds due to laziness and excessive drinking (a few dozen nightly Sam Adams are normal, right?)However, while most New Yorkers are stuck spraying Raid along the baseboards or overeating on capicola, Bostonians once again finding themselves gearing up for the annual Superbowl run. To tell you the truth, it's difficult to get any work done with the success of Boston sports. While New Yorkers are able to get to those pesky chores on Sunday, I am stuck sitting on my couch sluggin down beer after beer. It's like a job sometimes....

On a side note, Trot Nixon's tenure in Beantown is officially over as he has signed with the Indians. Farewell my dirty sloth looking friend. You will be missed!

King Rhoid: "Muscles McGuire Belongs!" - MLB Coverage: Bonds backs McGwire, Rose for Hall

Er, maybe it's just my in-ter-per-a-ta-tion, but I believe Pete Rose would spike your juice-riddened body until, like a grape, you popped.

Remember Death Valley?

Look behind "Folly Floater"'s shoulder. 463 feet! I still remember seeeing Bobby Murcer run full speed into one dogging after a fly ball, then bouncing off it and throwing the guy out at third.
I miss Monument Alley. Losing it was the one thing about the Stadium renovation I thought royally sucked.

Who Wants to Post Here?

The Darth Boss George Brigade, at least TC, is getting fucking tired carrying all the weight.

The doors are open. If you can prove you ain't crazier than me--and I enjoy the idea of that Rube Goldberg--you get posting priveleges....

Except for El Jefe. I already know he's fucked in the nut. He's already ready welcome.
