Walter O'Malley's Ghost

MANAGER’S L.A. MOVE COMES A LITTLE TOO QUICK:

"IF THIS happens, if Brooklyn's favorite son winds up managing Brooklyn's erstwhile baseball team, there are two things I will want to know in short order: 1. Does this mean Billy Crystal trades in the interlocking “NY' for the interlocking “LA' for good now? 2. What did Joe Torre know, and when did he know it?"

This should, finally, put a stake in the heart of Uncle Joe Torre's sainthood. Negotiating with LA before they threw Grady Little under the bus was just as bush league as what Boras and A-Hole pulled.

And, if (as rumored) he brings Mattingly and Bowa along for the ride, and fails to light up the NL West, something that's always sat in the back of my mind will become clear:

It wasn't him; it was Mel Stott and Zim, working with Buck and Stick's guys. Joe was just along for the ride.

Did Boras Blow It?

UNTIL THE END, IT WAS ALWAYS ABOUT A-ROD

If I am an owner, and I know that the Yankees have made it crystal clear that they will not even bother making an offer for A-Hole to remain in the Bronx after pulling his opt-out move without even talking to the team, why in Baby Jeebus's name would I throw a contract on the table with the numbers Boras has bandied about?

There are only a few teams who are in a position to afford it, and, IMO, three of them: the Yanks, Red Sox and Mets, are out of the equation.

YANKS: Baby Boss made it clear: "Fuck you, A-Hole. We were willing to pay, and you spit on us by opting out without even hearing what we had to say. DIAF."
METS: Omar isn't an asshole; he saw all the crap that swirled around A-Hole's stint in the Bronx, and he doesn't need a third baseman or shortstop. He's gonna spend his money elsewhere to trying putting his squad over the top, especially after their late season implosion.
RED SOX: What, they're gonna ditch Lowell? If they are gonna throw crazy money at anyone, he's the one RSN will demand be on the receiving end. Bringing in A-Hole would seriously screw the team's chemistry... I can't imagine Tek and A-Hole sharing a clubhouse... and it could potentially lead to Epstein and Henry getting serious death threats if they even talk about 'Slappy McBluelips' out loud if the trade-off is losing Lowell.

Of the remaining teams that could afford it, my bet would be the Halos; Vlad and A-Hole would be a helluva one/two punch. But it would be kinda interesting if nobody bites at the $30 million per year price. It would force Boras into a corner. If the bastard had waited until the Yanks had put an offer on the table and then said, "we want to test the waters," instead of pulling that stunt while the World Series was still underway, more teams would probably be willing, but after showing all of MLB that for A-Hole it's "all about me," I think a lot of owners are not gonna bother even trying to sign him.

Would you be willing to lock 20-30% of your salary to one guy who has never done shit when it's playoff time? Texas had a decent team before that moron owner signed A-Hole to that psychotic contract, and look what it got them: the cellar. The Yanks have nothing to show for taking A-Hole on; indeed, a case could be made that bringing him to the Bronx was a mistake. So unless Boras already has an owner's offer in his pocket (which would be "tampering" under MLB rules), he may have screwed the pooch and actually depressed A-Hole's price.

Attention: Potential Site Rebranding

If The Lip is right, Don Mattingly will manage if Boss Steinbrenner still rules then nothing will change.

If they pick Girardi, I'm renaming this joint. It will be called The Darth Boss George Brigade The King Lear's George Kiddie Korp.

and, for no real reason...


whenever I see this, I think, "they weren't a band, they were a gang."

And AWAY, We Go!

It's gonna be All Wrong:
National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum: Home

Not yelling at people? Just mumbling: "Fuck the Rockies".... Sheesh, this weekend is gonna Major League blow:
Steinbrenner family ties put everyone in bind

Every time I head up there, it's 'bet on it' fun. This year? Unless crazed Tribe teepee escapees are running amok, it's gonna suck

Madden is a Dick

He, really, has no idea what is going on. I've talked to (ooh, "not named")... no one gives a fuck for you)

It's the money, the power... it BELIEVE ME JESUS is not you douchebags who never did nothing.

BEERS. HERE.

Trot!

Torre Death Watch: Day Two

COTGM Exclusive: Steinbrenner Threatened Far More than Torre’s Job

On a more serious note, if you're Joe Torre, would you want to come back? I mean, the "Joba Rules" were put in place precisely because everyone was afraid Uncle Joe would burn the kid out, and he showed he was willing to do that by using the kid in a Game 3, where he had a five run lead, after not threatening to pull the kid and his team off the field during the Attack of the Bugs if the umps didn't delay the game. Really, hosing him down with Raid™ ? Twice? Why not smear the kid with Armorall during a threatened rain delay? It was bullshit.

That kinda deciding tells me he ain't gonna have anybody defending him if the decision about offering him a new contract ever makes it to the table.

Good Win!

Is it just me or is Hughes starting to look like a number 1 again?

Let's hope Mussina has it tomorrow.

Why Joba?

The lead was 5 runs. I know this game is must win, but they could have used one of the other guys until and unless the Indians got closer. Joba could have been brought in then if necessary. Now he is blown for tomorrow and with Mussina or Wang starting it seems less likely that there will be a five run lead going into the seventh and more likely that effective bullpen assistance will be required.

Just asking.

Win. Period

Joe Torre Is An Idiot

Why wasn't Joba pulled?

It was obvious that his focus was gone.

Why wasn't Mariano warming up when Sizemore was walked in four pitches?

Why wasn't Mariano in when we were lucky enough to find ourselves with two outs (they gave us one with that silly bunt, and then that line drive to Minky was luck in itself)?

Mariano comes in, this game is already over and we're going back to NY tied up.

Now? Who knows what's going to happen?

On the other hand, maybe god doesn't want the Yankees to win. Maybe he hates the Yankees so much that he sent his plague of locusts to mess with them.

That Better Be the End of the Ugly

Jeez, I don't know what was the worse thing I saw last night: Torre's decision to leave Wang in after it was obvious the sinker wasn't sinking; throwing the greenest guy in his bullpen into a "gotta stop the bleeding NOW" situation, or letting Sabathia off the hook and stranding runners all over the place... guy walks SIX and not one of them score? Unacceptable!

Look, Bombers, I have so far managed to go the entire season without destroying a television; don’t make me ruin the first season like that I’ve had in fucking years by pulling that kinda shit tonight.

I'm Watching 'Yankees Classics' on YES

First, it astounds me that no one ever just shot Howard Cosell, on General Principles.

Next, JESUS CHRIST WANTS TO BE RENAMED "REGGIE" BUT THURMAN WON'T ALLOW IT

"Be serious. I told Reggie in '77, "I'm gonna kill you if you don't come through." Chambliss saved his ass. Took a whole damn year for that asshole Jackson to figure out Piniella was ready to fucking kill him right there on the field."

There IS a God...

and the sucker wears Pinstripes, baby!
