Let’s just all relax….it’s the first two games of the season. The Yankees are scoring runs, but the starters are a little behind. 2 games is far too small a sample size to make any longer-term decisions for this team; Girardi is signed for this and next year, so hopefully we’ll see him around. Albaladejo was O.K. — he gets a lot of grief from you guys because he looks like a slimmed down Chris Britton; however, if you look at there numbers….not bad. What I’ve really enjoyed watching thus far has been the Jeter/Damon combination: one word, WOW: they’re aggresive on the base paths, hitting/walking, it’s refreshing to see this. Once Tex finds his stroke and the starters become a little more reliable, WATCH out.

Go Yankees,

Welcome back gay Eminem, how was your trip? I am not going to argue with you. I was making my opinions known for discussion, something you can’t do.

Why am I not surpirsed that after 2 straight losses BPark wants to sign Sheffield and is bitching about Fuentes.

Is fuestes going to help the fact that neither starting pitcher was able to make it past the 5th inning in these first two games?

and how is Sheffield going to help, with his busted shoulder and all?

I’m gone for a few days and Bpark runs a muck with his sorry excuse for “logic”. Dude, I can’t see how any of those two deals could help this team.

Maybe we need to start adressing this team’s training and conditioning program and how they handle pitchers. To me, it seems that each of the past 4 years the pitchers were NOT ready for the season. Hughes and Kenendy were obviously not ready last year, and CC and Wang obviously are not 100% (for whatever reason).

I am not going to flip the panic switch until, like, August if/when they are 13 games out or something. But to me, this is something that we are seeing every April and May the past few years: weird injuries, bad mechanics from otherwise good picthers, lethargic play from the everyday players, and guys just not being focused.

I think the yankees need to overhaul their entire philosophy of how they train, condition, even down to their nutrition. Something in the organization isn’t working, and I don’t think firing the manager or getting a big bat is going to solve the problem. They’ll just inherit the same mess.

Well, all of this could mean crap if the Yankees roll off 13 straight wins this month and wind up running away with the pennent.

my take: 8 games under when A-Rod comes back.

Randolph is the bench coach for the Brewers. I’m sure it wouldn’t be a problem to get him out of that contract.

Like

I was just always a big Randolph fan. I think the job should of been givin to him after the 2004 season. I thought Torre should of been fired after 2003. Definitely should of been gone after 2004. Turned out He wasn’t the utmost stand up guy we all thought he was. slightly greedy.

Matt your point is well taken but frankly I am getting fed up with this BS. The competitive spirit of this team is NON existent. You have got to want to win and I have yet to see that. I expected more just want to know when the Hell we are going to see it.

I supported the hiring of Girardi with the thought that he would wake this team up. This team continues to play with no life, no care and a collect a paycheck mentality. I don’t care who this team signs, who it brings up, who it looks at, this team plays like CRAP!!! Wake the *ell up.

Like

Like I said last night I see too many holes with this team this year?
I guess we can only wait this out and hope the loosing STOPS SOON!!!
Its too early for me to start my negative rants about Girardi, too early, but it drives me crazy to see a team play like C.R.A.P. like these Yankees have….

Come on YANKS Damit start playing some BASEBALL!!!

Well, I question some decisions. First I praise the decision to bring back Pettitte over Hughes in the rotation with Joba. I am also ok with Burnett and Texiera in the long run.
We didn’t carry a long reliever.
We don’t have a true DH who can play OF sometimes.
Swisher has no value.
Cabrera and Gardner are to reserve OF why carry both?
Sheffied was available and is a true DH.
Fuentes was the one deal we should have done.

I agree Girardi has until the middle of May to turn things around, MAYBE?

No, that will be the headline. Not a manager change, too early.

There will be no change, Arod the savior is all we will hear.
Randolph is under contract. Plus we’re still 1 bat short.

Randolph is waiting for the call from the Steinbrenners. If George was his old self he would be calling Girardi now. If April doesn’t go so well Hal and Hank hopefully will make a change. Hopefully Teixeira is just nervous about playing in front of the Baltimore fans.

We need a long reliever desparately, bullpen is getting innings in.

Parcells offered advice on replacing Torre, LaRousa was his choice, no one listened.

I thought Fuentes was a gapping hole in our offseason acquisition but from the 1st 2 games, he may not have even played.

MAYBE Parcells should manage THIS team???
Something is NOT working here???!!!

Bill Parcells cut a kicker in the locker room for missing an extra point. If he’s coaching this team, Ransom would be cut on the field, not getting a runner home from 3rd with 1 out.
AlbaJahobo is getting close to see Scranton again.
