Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen

microphone.jpgThis was one of the most entertaining e-mails I’ve received in a long time. There’s a  fan out there, Chris Pavia, who has captured the essence of Bob Sheppard and the late Eddie Layton with terrific impersonations of both.

From the YouTube page: “Listen as Chris takes you back in time sitting in your seat 45 minutes before the game and listening to the sounds of Eddie Layton and Bob Sheppard.”

He uses his own voice for Sheppard and the same type of organ, two keyboards and drum machine that Layton used at Yankee Stadium from the mid-1980s through 2003.

Chris is definitely talented – I can taste the hot dogs already. But don’t take my word for it. Turn up your volume and you be the judge and jury. What do you think?

He sounds just like Bob Shepard!

Bryan, to be continued…..

Posada is throwing at 90 feet last I’ve heard.

The thing I have more faith in is that Teixeira is going to come a lot more in handy than Giambi… No offense to the G-MAN (He will forever be one of my favorite Yankees, who can’t love the “Support the Stache’”. However, after years of watching Giambi play most of his homeruns especially this season were for a lost cause…. He only came in handy in a blow out lose or a tremendous win. Not to mention you can’t even begin to compare the players as a whole, because defensively there is no debate…
Nady on the other hand proved to be able to handle New York last year, so why not this year? Although I believe Abreu was a great player you could replace him with a minor league player and have someone play the wall better.

There are people suggesting we should try to acquire Arizona’s catcher, I don’t have too much knowledge of him.
Has anyone see Posada throw a baseball yet? Much less in a game. I’d be surprised if he can catch over his head.

Analyzing career stats for average at bats to produce a run, rbi, and strike out here is what I see:

Players - AB/R - AB/RBI - AB/SO
Abreu/Giambi - 5.60 - 5.43 - 4.73
Teixeira/Nady - 6.62 - 5.65 - 4.96
Teixeira/Swisher -
6.02 - 5.53 - 4.48

So there is no upgrade unless Nady, Swisher, and Teixeira all improve on their career stats.

Honestly, if Posada can’t catch, this team is in a fair amount of trouble. Cashman is keeping his fingers crossed on that one but so far, so good.

Gotcha…..Reminds me of the dropoff when Sheff and Matsui both broke their wrists. Only question is will ultimately Posada and Matsui be competing for the same spot at some point?

Like this

The thinking is that having Posada and Matsui healthy will make up for the lost run production in ’08 and get them back to a 900 run team.

Braves have invited a catcher named Phillip Britton, if thats Chris’s brother, he probably has no problem covering the plate.

Where is the lineup UPGRADE? I don’t see it, we replaced our 3 spot in the lineup and clean up hitter with Texiera. Sorry I don’t see it.

That ROCKS!!!

Just like being at The Stadium, from Sheppard’s voice right down to the rhythm of the organ. You’re right, he is definitely talented!

Sean,
Interesting choice of Coke for the five slot. Although he did little to merit attention before 2008, it’ll be interesting to see how he starts 2009 at AAA or AA. I’m not sure where King got those numbers from, but Ford wasn’t a hard thrower either. No doubt that out of what we have now Hughes is the clear choice!

————————————————————————-

Now that Cabrera and Nady are signed it appears that Pettitte at $10 Million would increase the payroll from 2008 not lower it. With that “barrier” exceeded, can we now give Pettitte the $12 or $13 Million he is worth? King, laugh all you want, but neither Burnett or Sheets have demonstrated that they can succeed as Yankees while Pettitte has! Any skeptics may want to reread this:
