Pretty impressive, Alex.

Mussina should be at least at the game to be introduced. But you know, who cares. The wilds card is within striking distance, and who knows, they could get the division if they have a good showing against the DEVILRAYS they can steal this division…Maybe Mike Francesa was right-maybe they take the WC and get in.
I’m as cynical as they come…But guys, think about what could happen if they get in to a short series. They can cause problems for some of these AL teams who might make it. Think about it: in the Division series, Joba might be back in the Bullpen…I just see them getting out of the first round if, and thats a big IF, they get in to the play offs..

4 games out of the wildcard.

If the Yanks want to start winning, they need to dump the WB and get some better bench players to add some depth to this lineup. Hows about making it “official” about LaToya and carrying 12 pitchers so we can get add another bat.

And no Bonds. Just…no Bonds.

CC is doing a beltran. That “rental” by the astros made Beltran a very, very rich man….

At least we’re only 9 games out of first. The DEVILRAYS can start losing anytime now. On that note, we can start winning anytime. No really, Yanks, it’s OK to win more than 1 game in a row.

All the analysts are saying that the Sabathia deal is exclusively a rent. Even local Milwaukee guys.

Congratulations to the Milwaukee Brewers on renting CC for half a season. Think about this, everyone. Do you really think the Brewers have the coffers to keep CC Sabathia? He left Cleveland because they couldn’t pay him. This is a fantastic move on the part of CC. He gets to face hitters who have never seen him for half a season, pad his numbers as a result, then declare free agency at the end of the season and get a 200 million dollar contract. Cashman, just hand him a blank check when the time comes, and let him fill in the zeros.

Brewers are taking a huge gamble now. I hope it pays off for them, otherwise they are screwed. I can’t see them being able to hold onto either Sheets or CC, let alone both. If they don’t go deep into the postseason they’re gonna regret losing LaPorta

Unfortunately, Olney was right about CC deal. ESPN’s telecast mention Wolf, Fuentes (and one move reliever), An outfielder, some bench players as our targets. Gammons however had a hard time with shrugging off the Bonds speculation for Boston.

Gardner is way better than Matt believes.
Abreu once again gave a double by waiting for Cash’s flyball to bounce, no hussle.

How could you say Mussina isn’t respected by the players? He’s a really well liked guy around the league. I’ve never heard anything bad about him.

He has better #’s than santana-two more wins with an offense that is, well, offensive (Ha, I like that!)

I agree, he dissed Clemens and Clemens took it because he respects Moose.

DO NOT get me started on Willie Mays Hayes Betemit over here. (he runs like Mayes and hits like crap). Its funny, because I wanted to throw my TV out the window when they pinch hit the WB for Molina. Paplebon-bon made him look like a redheaded stepchild (even though I am well aware of the fact that he does not, in fact, have red hair.) But I was confident gardner was going to get on, and that Jeter was going to pop one into left field.

And I am so sick of seeing Hideki Okajerkme pitch. With that little head “jerk” that he does I’m surprised he doesn’t have whiplash.

And What the heck is this about: Jacoffme Ellsbury is a “rookie”? You kidding me? Wtach-Chamberlain pitched to a 2.00era this season and Jacoffme Ellsbury gets the rookie of the year award. He ain’t no ROOKIE.

And Kevina Poukilis is my new “most hated player”. See him go in with his spikes on his slide into second? Joba can throw behind him any time he wants….I mean, who cares; he didn’t hit him.

Ahhhhh…I loathe the Redsox. I think they should try, as a team, bathing once and a while. i heard thats really good for curing diseases like “plague” and “dysentry”. And Manny Ramirez looks like the Predator’s third cousin twice removed with that ultra-disgusting hair of his.
Sorry, I’m just happy for the first time in weeks about this stupid yankee team. They beat the smelly gym Sox in two heart breakers that really make a difference in the standings for the red sox (not so much for the yankees, though-not yet. We HAVE to get both from the D-rays -er-Rays…)

I knew Gardner would come through eventually. That guy can swing the stick, and he had a productive day today with his first multihit game! That’s back-to-back days of exciting Yankee wins, and another good Red Cox-Yankees series.

That’s right, I said Red Cox.

I agree with you both but Girardi showed me absolutely NOTHING in that inning. If the damn manager isn’t going to show some emotion how the *ell do you expect the players to? I wanted Girardi as manager for that type of situation, he’d show emotion and stick up for his players. His pitcher got screwed by a BAD call and he did nothing.
