Cash? Is this the end of the Shopping Spree?

Christmas is still two days away.

Go buy Manny for Hank's stocking and watch all of baseball's heads asplode.

Hank's Getting Nuts Like Daddy

so they're lusting after Manny.

Stop, you fools. While Manny would certainly bring the psychodrama potential to nose-bleed levels (seriously, Girardi would likely end up killing him after waking one morning to the NY Post running a front page of Manny and Madonna boinking in Macy's window as A-Hole lies curled in a fetal position on the Herald Square pavement with one thumb screwed in his mouth and the other screwed in his ass), you silly young spawns of Darth Boss George should just STFU and leave this kind of crap to Cashman.

And if you really, really, really need to throw even more truckloads of money at someone (good God, you've already committed a quarter billion to two freaking pitchers and one of them screams "PAVANO!") to justify your Steinbrenner-hood bona fides, do everyone a favor: make your target Teixiera.

Throw gobs and gobs of money at Teixiera, because if you don't, and Tex ends up in Fenway, while WE end up with Manny and all the insanity he carries....

well, let's just say it would be against your interests to ever dare leave Tampa Bay unless you're riding in an up-armored Humvee.

It Must Be REALLY Tough Economic Times

I mean, c'mon! All he can get from the Skanks is 7 years and $161M?? That's just barely Santana money. Oh well, at least there's still Food Stamps and WIC to help him pay the bills.

Andre Dawson gets into 2 HOF's: Baseball and Jerri Curl

Jim Ed and The Hall

From Nick Carfado:

"Hall of Fame ballots will be in the hands of voters soon. This year, Jim Rice and Rickey Henderson appear to have the best chance to get in.

Longtime Red Sox publicist Dick Bresciani has brilliantly made a statistical case the last few years for Rice, who will be on the ballot for the 15th and final time.
Last year, Rice was named on 392 ballots (72.2 percent), just 16 votes short of election. According to Bresciani, it was the 21st time a player received more than 70 percent but less than 75 percent. On all 20 previous occasions, the player eventually was elected.

There have been five such instances in the last 20 years: Gaylord Perry, Orlando Cepeda, Bruce Sutter, Gary Carter, and Rich Gossage. A few more of Bresciani's points:

Rice ranked among the top five in AL MVP voting in 1975, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1983, and 1986. He is the only player to finish among the top five in AL voting at least five times between 1963-2005. He is one of 16 major leaguers to place among the top five in MVP voting at least six times. Of the 12 Hall of Fame-eligible players on this list, 11 are in Cooperstown, including eight who were elected on the first ballot. Rice is the only exception.

Rice is one of only 10 players to lead a league in runs, hits, home runs, and RBIs over a 14-year span. He and Rafael Palmeiro are the only players to accomplish the feat who are not in the Hall of Fame. Among the eight Hall of Famers on this list, five were elected on the first ballot.

Rice is one of 14 players to post four or more seasons of 200 hits and 100 RBIs. Among the retired players on this list, only Rice and Steve Garvey are not in the Hall of Fame.

From 1975-86, Rice was the most dominant player in the AL. During that stretch, he led the league in 12 categories and ranked among the top five in two others. He led the league over that period with 350 home runs, but unlike most sluggers of his day, he ranked fourth with a .304 batting average. He collected the most hits over that period and also ranked first with a .520 slugging percentage. He legged out 73 triples, including 15 in 1977 and 1978."

If the Goose is in then Rice should be as well

Shea Stadium; Citi Field; TAXPAYER PARK!

It's pure, delicious schadenfreude for this fan of the Yankees to see the Mutts get caught up in the Citigroup bailout mess:

The New York Mets theme song for the 2009 season is 'We built this Citi.' The question is whether the Citi will stand.

Questions about whether the humungous 20-year, $400 million naming rights deal that the bank agreed to two years ago for the new Mets stadium would stand up, began when the global financial crisis started. Then the 53,000 jobs cut at Citi, the second largest single job cuts in terms of volume in history. And last night, the government injecting $20 billion into Citigroup.

Just looking over the upcoming possible free agents and the following are the teams without a former Red Sox great that'll be available (total number of FAs):

Kansas City (2)
Minnesota (4)
NYY (9) -- I can't believe there's NOT A SOUL here who played for the Sox
Seattle (3)
Texas (5)
Colorado (6)
Florida (4)
San Diego (3)
San Francisco (2)
Washington (2)

Amazing that 19 other teams have at least ONE former Red Sox player on the FA list. Just goes to show what Curt Flood and Marvin Miller accomplished...

I have to admit that at 23 years of age I could be seen having an adult beverage or two at a 'Gentlemen's establishment' in the Combat Zone.

C'mon Already!

Will you Feckless Fenway Fuckwits put these bitches in the ditch and get on with it?

Manny is looking at the Phillies' pitching, and saying, "Yes. There will be blood."
(okay, Manny couldn't be caught talking that way on a good day, but you know what I mean.)

Torre is just balls bouncing off the the floor laughing at the ridiculous of this.

Who ARE these TBS guys?

I recognize one voice (the younger, black guy, who from following the chatter seems to have once been a player, but I can't place him), but for the life of me, I have no idea who these two other people talking at me actually are.

Granted, much of the time I've had the TV on mute, so if they introduced themselves, I guess I missed it.

But who are these shits? I've watched enough games that I should have picked up at least one name.

Also, I wouldn't have gained something like 15-20 pounds (every time I walk into the bathroom I can hear the scale (manufactured by an oufit called, I shit you not, "Borg") snigger as I act like it isn't really there), thanks to their "all you can eat" ticket scheme... which means I'm gonna have to kick my ass at the gym for the next three weeks so I won't look like a beached whale when we go down to our time share in St. Thomas in mid-October.

"These games always mean the most when the baseball is more meaningful than the drama," said Johnny Damon , who has seen the rivalry from both sides of the abyss, who was once the most loathsome of Red Sox as a hirsute pest, who is now hated enough in Boston to give both Derek Jeter Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez a run for their championship belts.

It's pretty obvious something was going on once you pass 1997. Enter the new century and the "hitting the gym" idea pretty much crumbles.

Of course, that they were located in King Roid's backyard is strictly a co-inky-dence.

There were a LOT of people in the stands wearing colors from all around the league, which means it wasn't a normal Yankee Stadium "Zoo" crew. But many, many Bleacher Creatures (and wannabes) stuck around to take that shot at Papelbon, and riled the rest of the spectators up enough to join in on their twisted brand of enthusiasm.

Still, if this was a regular Yanks/Sawx game, the vitriol would have been a physical force... as would NYPD's response to the riots that would have broken out when Nationites retaliated against Mo.

Lord, next weekend's Fenway excursion is gonna be friggin' insane. Mumbles is gonna need to call out the National Guard.

Mutts Stage Monday Midnight Massacre

Absolutely Classless Bastards
The Mets have fired manager Willie Randolph, pitching coach Rick Peterson and first base coach Tom Nieto, the team announced shortly after 3 a.m. Eastern time Tuesday.

Bench coach Jerry Manuel has been named the team's interim manager, while Ken Oberkfell, Dan Warthen and Luis Aguayo will join the staff.


Omar Minaya is the biggest douchebag in NY sports. He knew he was going to fire Willie and those coaches before they ever got on the plane to LA. What the hell was the point of having these guys fly out to the West Coast and then fire them? Are you THAT afraid of the NY beat writers that you had to be 3000 miles away before you felt comfortable making this move?

Hey, Omar? Do your really think this new regime is gonna change anything? Will their presence suddenly make that idiot Billy Wagner not blow saves? Will a new pitching coach suddenly make Pedro young again? You've made an art of signing washed up Hispanic players at the tail end of their careers and now you want to blame their failure on Willie?

You're a prick, Minaya, a goddamn prick for doing it like this. Willie Randolph--a bonafide, Brooklyn born baseball hero in this town--deserved better than to be treated like this by some punk like you. You built this team, you asshole bastard. If the Wilpons had any friggin' sense it would have been your head that got chopped.

DIAF, you cocksucking punk fuck.

or does anyone else feel that the Muttsies' fans and the sports writers/talk jocks are all looking in the wrong direction when it comes to who should get shoved up against the wall?

Willie didn't build this team; it was all Omar Minaya's doing. And Omar seems to be getting a free pass while Willie gets raked over the coals.

WHAT'S THIS "WE" AND "OUR" BULLSHIT?

They are missing two big bats, playing against a team that is pitching like crazy, while their starting rotation is--I am being kind--fucking limping. Mo gives up a run for the first time so far this season... so what how does the Idiot Son respond?
HANK TO YANKEES: IT IS TIME TO EARN YOUR MONEY
"We've got to forget about all the injuries and start playing our butts off," Steinbrenner told The Post....

"The bottom line is that the team is not playing the way it is capable of playing," Steinbrenner said. "These players are being paid a lot of money and they had better decide for themselves to earn that money."


No, you dipshit, the "bottom line" is that without A-Hole and Posada in the lineup, plus Jeter's immediately previous stint on the bench because of his tweaked quad, you should consider yourself goddamn lucky the AL East is such a thick mix. Sure, they currently stand a half a game out of the five hole in the AL East, but so what? IT'S FIVE FUCKING GAMES. Last year A-Hole carried the goddamn team on his back when the pitching was crap during April and into May.
http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif
On this day last year they were eight and a half back.

Right now, there are more than more one guy trying to make up the slack with their bats.

Could Boomer III be in the cards? Consider that Wells has a huge fan monitoring the situation from Tampa. Hank Steinbrenner admitted yesterday that Wells, who recently made appearances on "Best Damn Sports Show Period," has crossed his mind as a possibility for the Yankees' rotation.

"I've thought about it," Steinbrenner told The Post. "I saw him on TV, and I did think about it when I was watching."


DO IT, you crazy bastard! Show me you really are DBG's son.

Time to Start the "When Will Baby Boss Blow?" Poll

You gotta believe that Santana's success with the Team in Queens, combined with Ian ("Go get your shit together in Scranton") Kennedy, and Phil ("Is he the reincarnation of Pavano or 'Banged Around' Brown?") Hughes seriously looking like they just are not ready for prime time, Baby DBG must be getting close to the nuclear explosion threshold:
Hank voices frustration with slow start:
"'I'm very disappointed with the way the season has gone, period,' Steinbrenner told The Associated Press at the team's Spring Training complex in Tampa, Fla.....

'The injuries have been a killer, too, there's no question about that,' Steinbrenner said. 'It happens to one team every year, sometimes more than one team. And it just appears to be our year. It's something you've got to deal with in every sport.'"


If Torre was having big success out West, I'm sure Hank would be livid and threatening Cashman's wife with execution right now.

Oh, Shit.

EVERYBODY PANIC!
Posada Likely Headed for Disabled List - New York Times:
The Yankees said there would be no announcement until after the game, but Posada, who has a tear in his subscapularis muscle, is expected to visit Dr. James Andrews and will most likely be placed on the disabled list.

Posada has already shared his magnetic resonance imaging results with Andrews, and Posada has said that surgery would not be necessary. But the problem has not improved as Posada hoped, again raising the specter of an operation.


Dr. Andrews means surgery, period. You do not go see him in person unless you are scared shitless about what's going on with your arm. He's "the doctor of last resort."

They put the kid from Scranton, Chad Moeller, on assignment when they brought up arms to bolster the bullpen. So, right now, the Yankees have one, count 'em, ONE catcher.

Good God Almighty, if Jorge goes under the knife, this season is hosed. He's the single player whose absence for any length of time is an unmitigated disaster. Losing his switch-hitting bat would be bad enough; with the Kiddie Korp Twins of Kennedy and Hughes struggling as they are, the loss of his presence behind the plate will be a disaster.

Lovin' 9-1 like a fat kid loves cake

Even with the so-called pitching woes we've had this team has got my balls as big as church bells.

The only thing I'm worried about is this: Who goes to the minors when Mikey comes back?

Jed Don't-Call-Me-Clampett Lowrie is playing like Tacoby Bellsbury did when he came up last year, Taco is playing like he belongs and yet Coco deserves everyday playing time. What to do you ask? Here's my take: trade Coco now while he's playing great for a GOOD lefty-outta-the pen.

Funny how Julio Lugo has all of a sudden caught fire with Lowrie's call up...

Learn It; Live It

MANNY SOX IT TO BOMBERS, AGAIN - New York Post:
"The Yankees should give Manny Ramirez the finger. Actually, four of them, every time he steps into the batter's box."
I swear, after the first homer--and what happened previously--Girardi needed to treat Manny like many NL managers (whose tactics seem comfy to Joe in other respects) treated Barry "King Rhoid" Bonds, and just refuse to allow him a chance to do any damage.

It was bloody obvious Manny has been feasting on your pitchers, Girardi; he should have been given a free pass the second time he came to the plate.

You're lucky you won't be dealing with him again until the first week of July. Here's hoping the lesson will have sunken in by then.

You Will HEED THE BLEACHERS!

Well, that didn't take long: The Official Site of The New York Yankees: News: Hawkins gives up No. 21 for No. 22:
"Hawkins wore No. 22 with the Yankees during Spring Training, but switched to No. 21 when infielder Morgan Ensberg decided he no longer wanted to wear it. Ensberg was randomly assigned the number upon reporting to camp as a non-roster invitee and later revealed that he received numerous vulgar comments from Yankees fans during the Grapefruit League campaign.

Hawkins eagerly accepted No. 21 as a tribute to Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente but quickly learned that a pinstriped No. 21 has other meanings for Yankees fans. Unaware he was donning a number that had not been worn since O'Neill retired following the 2001 World Series, Hawkins was booed when introduced on Opening Day at Yankee Stadium. Fans chanted 'Paul O'Neill' during one of his appearances in the Bronx.

According to CBSSports.com, Hawkins made the decision after discussions with Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera and other Yankees veterans, who told Hawkins that the number is not worth the headache it's causing.

'I figure if it's important enough for Jeter and Mariano and some other veterans to ask me about it, it's not worth it to keep wearing the number,' Hawkins told the Web site."


I too was pissed when I heard he'd be wearing Paulie's number, and the fact he took it after Ensberg caught all sorts of shit during Spring Training should have given him fair warning that, despite his "honoring Roberto Clemente" reasoning, the same crap was gonna come raining down on him.

That said, I think the real blame for this fiasco falls directly on the Yankees, not Hawkins. When they saw the reaction Ensberg received they should have put the number on the shelf; unofficially retire the number until they decide when they are gonna be giving Paul O'Neill his due. He retired after 2001; he's made an Old Timers Day appearance; when the fuck are those assholes gonna give us "Paulie Day" and retire the number for real?

They gotta know--as does Jeter, Mo, and whoever else told Hawkins to switch--that we will NEVER accept anyone else wearing that number. Darth Boss George called him "the ultimate warrior." He was the heart and soul of the team in the time he wore Pinstripes once Donny Baseball was gone. Even if you waited ten more years, we'd still give anyone daring to wear "21" all the vitriol we could muster.

There are only two Yankee jerseys hanging in my closet; among the various numbered tee shirts in the house, only two numbers will ever be worn by me.

They belong to "Oh Captain My Captain" and Paul O'Neill.

Jeter Gets A Big Sloppy Lewinskey

this guy is an absolute asshole:
The case for a plaque is that, so far he isn't a jaw-dropping slugger, league batting champion, record setter or even a one-time Most Valuable Player. Is he a bigger deal than Yogi and Whitey?

The case for a monument so far is about a hundred-fold, such as he is one of the great clutch players ever, has four rings, is very likely to reach 3,000 hits, has three Gold Gloves and breezily handles the responsibility of being an icon on the most pressurized team in the non-stop information age.

I vote for the monument.


I vote this guy is the stupidest git walking the planet. If you follow his tortuous logic, I could make a damn good case that all the seats behind the plate at the new joint should be declared "Thurmanville," but then I'd get in a bitchfest with people insisting that honor should go to Yogi... or PC idiots saying the nod should go to Ellie.

What he should be bitching about is Paulie's number being put back in the mix. THAT is seriously bullshit.

Excitement

This is the first time in years that the season begins with mystery and hope. And it is not just the usual hope (and expectation) for a record breaking regular season record and a dominating World Series victory. This year is it is hope, and hope is all it is, for a great year now, yes, but also for future domination. Future domination with homegrown talent, which for some reason (despite the fact that I have never met, and never expect to, any of the players, homegrown or otherwise) makes it all the more sweet. March 31st can't arrive soon enough.

Why is Pettite Getting a Total Pass?

The way that the radio guys, NY Post and Daily News sportswriters--especially that gutless twirp Lupica, who doesn't allow comments on his near-daily attacks on Clemens--have pretty much all decided that the Rocket is already convicted, it's unsurprising that I had to go to the Village Voice find a clear headed examination about what really is going on in this circus sideshow:

When the Mitchell Report revealed that McNamee said he injected Pettitte with HGH in 2002, Pettitte was reviled as a cheat and a liar. In a short time, he was transformed into a sympathetic figure (despite withholding information on further HGH use) for one reason: He was the tool that could be used to get Roger Clemens.


Softballs for Pettitte; Beanballs for Clemens by Allen Barra

Barra lays out what seems to be the biggest reason everyone has decided that Rocket is guilty: Pettite's testimony. But Andy's testimony ain't necessarily the smoking gun everyone seems to believe it is:


That Pettitte would not appear as a witness at the February 13 public hearing wasn't known until just before midnight on Monday, February 11. The next morning, most headlines read like ESPN.com's "Pettitte's Affidavit Supports McNamee's Version of Events." This, it seemed, was damning—irrefutable proof that Clemens had lied in his own deposition to the committee (not to mention to Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes). It was speculated that the reason that Pettitte would not be appearing in person was that he didn't want to hurt and embarrass his close friend and former teammate—an explanation highly favorable to Mitchell and Waxman, as well as to Pettitte's reputation.

Another version of Pettitte's reasons to skip the hearing appeared in numerous stories that also appeared on February 12: As ESPN's T.J. Quinn reported, sources had told him that "Pettitte was not a good witness when he appeared before Congressional lawyers during sworn deposition . . . . Pettitte often contradicted himself, so the committee agreed to his request not to appear before the committee." If that's true, one must wonder if Waxman wasn't relieved that Pettitte wouldn't be grilled in person about the vague and often contradictory statements in his deposition. If so, Roger Clemens, whether innocent or guilty, was denied the fundamental right of facing his accuser.

Predictably enough, those local sportswriters who have long since declared Clemens guilty haven't gone back to Pettitte's deposition, though it is now on the public record. If they did, they might agree with Will Carroll of Baseball Prospectus, who, in a thoughtful February 14 piece on the BP website, found that "Pettitte's testimony is hardly the slam-dunk takedown of Clemens that it was made out to be. Pettitte, in many places, actually corroborates Clemens's version. . . . What is interesting is that the differences between Pettitte's statement and Clemens's statement are so easily reconciled."

YES! Spring IS here finally!
And not too soon, I might add!

Say, "Cheese!", Asshole!

Oh, my, what a web we weave! Isn't that right Texas Con Man?

If this is true you'd better come clean (LMAO!) and soon.

But then again, you're not worried about the Hall, are ya' now?

This Hearing is a Farce

I've been watching the Clemens Hearing Inquisition, and it has devolved from an absolute waste of time and taxpayer dollars to a televiosion game show: Who's the Liar?"

So far, MacNamee seems to be pulling ahead; one of the Inquisitors read through a list of quotes MacNamee'd given to various newspapers and other media outlets, stopping after each and asking, "was that the truth?"

MacNamee: "No sir."

After about the eighth question the guy says, "Y'know, I'm not even going to bother with the rest of this list," and said, "This is basically a case of who we are supposed to believe, and I have to say, I have no reason to believe you."

Someone Remind Me...

Have I lifted the fatwa from Farnsworth's shoulders?

Because all this Joba in the bullpen? stuff is really starting to tick me off, and pitchers & catchers hasn't even started.

FUCK THIS "INNINGS PITCHED/PROTECT THE KID" SHIT!

If you don't sign someone--anyone, you have no choice when it comes to the rotation.

Joba's in it.

Where have you gone....

Orenthal James....

Say it ain't so, Rocket!

Oh, but it is so. Supreme Douchebag Clemens has hired an All-Star roster of fucktards.

Other than Ann Richards I thought that EVERYONE from Texas was 'Red' but I guess that's not the case when you hire someone from BILL FUCKING CLINTON'S legal team...

HEY, JEFE?

While getting ready for Pitcher & Catchers, I was reading through the old posts at the DBGB.

I was stunned: we're idiots. Having fun, but still....

And what the hell happened to Ric?

The House That Darth Boss George Bought

The Team from Queens will play in a joint named after a bank that might not exist by the time it opens.

DBG would never commit such heresy.

Really, Muttsies, you should have had some class and stuck with honoring Bill Shea, who was one of the most important guys in modern NY sports. If not for him, your club (and the NY Islanders) would never have been born.

On the Loose in the Coop!

Rich "Goose" Gossage became only the fifth relief pitcher elected to the Hall of Fame, earning baseball's highest honor Tuesday on his ninth try on the ballot.

Known for his overpowering fastball, fiery temperament and bushy mustache, the Goose received 466 of 543 votes (85.8 percent) from 10-year members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

The Definition of "Douchebag"

Ex-minor leaguer could sue MLB - Yahoo! Sports:
"Ex-St. Louis Cardinals farmhand Rich Hartmann told the New York Daily News he is considering filing the lawsuit, and has support from former teammates.

'Was I cheated of my dreams of a big-league career?' Hartmann said in Sunday's Daily News. 'I don't know. But I do know there were thousands of guys who were right on the doorstep between 1990 and 2005 and they were cheated because they didn't use steroids.'"


Hey, Hartmann? You couldn't break out of single A in the Cardinals' system back then... when the big team was pretty damn shitty.

You really think some other guy taking 'roids was your problem?
