Totally agree with you robert G. Since 2009 both of us have pointed out the age on this ballclub, the total waste of young minor leaguers who do NOT appear to be ready for primetime and the stupidity of upper management decisions. There needs to be a HOUSECLEANING top to bottom. The minor league system NEEDS some new coaches and direction. IF the Yankees are to sign free agents GET SOME YOUTH and NOT OLD players. Lastly, for God’s sake end the Yankee careers of those who collect a paycheck and do NOTHING to contribute. I’d start with #13, #65 and whatever Job’s number is. There are a huge number of holes to fill and it will take 3-5 years to repair the damage there.

Seeknay: Some might tag our comments as negative but it’s reality whatever some media people or fans might say. This team was put together for a 40 game season but not 160 + . They’re too old, too injury prone, not good enough, whatever. Other than Hughes the starting pitching generally has been very good but the offense, the hitting has been terrible especially with guys in scoring position. The same old nemesis from last year. If it keeps happening is it the players or is it Girardi? I’ll tell you this,”Watch out for the Blue Jays!” They’re coming on like gang busters and are the team now everyone feared they might be and the Yankees are the team now we all expected they would be. Get used to it. It’s going to be a long and painful season. What hope for next year? Can we clear big payroll off our books? We’re paying big bucks for guys on rehab and have been on rehab most of the year. Same old, same old but no one is doing anything or there isn’t anything anyone can do. Very disappointing.

Well another disasterous performance by #65 tonight. I guess releasing him is out of the question. The guy defines the words Total BUST. The sooner the Yankees get rid of him the better.

Is it me or does Phil Hughes have that I don’t Give a Damn attitude? Frankly, this is one guy that I hope the Yankees get rid of this July or at the end of the year. Of course I’ve been saying that for at least 4 years now.

Vernon Wells is DONE, the Yankees needs to release him. What I saw in the bottom of the 5th today with the bases loaded was an absolute JOKE. He’s DONE.
