WTF is wrong with the Yankees. Are they serious about the signing today of Chase Headley for 4 years and $52 Million dollars. GM Brian Cashman was actually quoted as saying, “Chase is the type of player that any team would love to have. He brings everything you want in a player, and is a great leader in the clubhouse.” Seriously Brian, we went from Derek Jeter as our team leader to Chase f&%$ing Headley. Now, I have no problem with Headley and I am happy that he got a contract, I just wish it was with any other team in baseball. His numbers last year were .243, 13 HR’s and 49 RBI’s. The Yankees also stated in a press release today that with the addition of Didi Gregorius and the resigning of Headley they have sured up the left side of the infield for years to come. Do they really think their fans are that stupid. How much smoke can they try and blow up all our asses before we just give up. I have been a Yankee fan my whole life and have spent many summers rooting for teams that were lucky to win 70 games, but this team is a joke right now. I would much rather let any young players come up and struggle and hit .230 than the bunch we are going to watch this season. I was speaking to a good friend of mine today, also a lifelong Yankee fan, and we were discussing the sorry state of the team right now when he made a great point. “Who the hell on this team are you supposed to get excited about watching on a daily basis, and maybe they should go get a backup 1st Basemen considering Texeira is usually hurt 75% of the time.” The middle of the Yankee lineup is going to include Mark Texeira, Carlos Beltran, Chase Headley and of course, Alex Rodriguez. They are basically bringing back the same old bunch as last year that couldn’t make the playoffs. They got a pass last year because of Jeter’s retirement but who the hell is going to pay the prices they charge to see this team.
As I wrote earlier in the day yesterday, I was pretty fired up to watch Johnny Manziel get his 1st start in the NFL, at home in Cleveland, against the Cincinnati Bengals, who had been chirping all week about how they were going to defend him and even … [Continue reading]
I have not been this excited for a football game this season since the Giants were 3-2 and all of us Giants fans thought they were Super Bowl bound, as I proclaimed they would be. A seven game losing streak later there wasn't much to get pumped up … [Continue reading]
