  • So you only like the players who get at least one hit every game?

  • This is beneath our dignitude. Perhaps even SFs. So sad.

  • Aw, YF, did we hurt your feelings? And we pre-apologized, even!

  • And if you haven’t figured out yet, NOTHING is beneath our dignitude! (is that even a word?)

  • Let’s see, how did Captain Varitek do tonight? Hmmm, 0 for 5, with 2 strikeouts and 7 left on base.

  • So, I can’t decide which odds are better: Cashman being fired first, or Torre. I love Torre, and I’m a Sox fan. But The Bo$$ must be pi$$ed after these last few games. Can someone tell me which to bet on? Thanks.

  • It’s going to depend on what happens to Lou Pinella. If he’s released out of Tampa, I don’t think Steinbrenner lets him go to the likes of Cleveland or some other on-the-cusp team. If he sends Joe Torre packing, the chances are he will call it quits, and even if he doesn’t, and goes elsewhere, the chances are we just see the old Joe Torre resurface. But, in my opinion, no matter how little he actually had to do with the recent Yankee success, Joe Torre deserves a pass for at least a couple years in New York. If Lou doesn’t get fired in TB, my bet would be Cashman (as it should be).
    Oh, I almost forgot – what John YF fails to see is that the Red Sox won the game in which he’s decided to take a jab at our beloved Captain. In fact, the Captain and his team just finished up the sweep of the team that just won nine straight and had the best ERA in the league. Not, and I hate to do it, the Captian that lead a team into a second loss to the worst team in the league.

  • Tek gets a mulligen. He’s been an absolute monster at the plate this year, even boasting one of the best BAs in the league right now. A bad night is allowed, especially when the rest of the team manages to pull out the win without him. It proves that the Sox offense doesn’t rely on just one player to get the job done.

  • And Jeter hasn’t had a good decade, with 4 rings?

  • sithkhan, I think Steinbrenner likes having a personal whipping boy ever at the ready in the person of Brian Cashman. Da Boss needs somebody to torture: he can’t afford to lose Cashman. Deserving or not, Joe Torre is the horse I’m betting on.
