Re: The 2006 New York Yankees

Young should have let that one go by. It would have been more fitting if the Rangers had at least gotten the tieing run into scoring position.

Re: The 2006 New York Yankees

Good win tonight. Wang was lights out again and I'm really looking forward to watching him pitch the next few years. I really wouldnt mind him being the Game 3 starter in the playoffs. He's got a calm demeanor and hes extremely economical which will be important in the playoffs because I foresee our bullpen outside Mo and Villone peeing themselves in October.

Re: The 2006 New York Yankees

I guess we plan on giving up a run in every inning but the 1st.

Awesome.

Lets not even discuss this game.

Re: The 2006 New York Yankees

Maybe this will finally end that crap on Baseball Tonight and Sportscenter where everytime Johnson has a decent outing they say, "And maybe Randy Johnson is turning it around..." His days as a dominant number 1 are over. Oh he'll have a few games here and there where he shuts down the opposition just like any other starter but most of the time he's going to be league average or worse. At this point, I would not be shocked if Johnson ends up the number 3 starter in the postseason behind Mussina and Wang, should the Yankees qualify for the postseason.

Clearly a fluke today when Tomas Perez, my vote for worst player in the majors, went 5 for 5. Knowing this Rays team, whoever pitches for you guys tommorow will shut the lineup down.

There's no question about it anymore. He's old. Thats what happens when you get old. He's got #3 ability in an ace's spot but the bad thing is, my biggest knock against Torre is that he insists on keeping guys in roles that they aren't supposed to be in just because "thats what they are." For instance, Wright should've started this season in the bullpen and Small shouldve been in the rotation (this is before we knew Small would suck again) but he kept Wright in the rotation despite a terrible spring because "he was signed to start" and Small was signed to relieve even though Small pitched 1000x better than Wright the previous year.

In this same light, Torre I think is definitly going to start RJ Game 1 of the playoffs (assuming we get there) although Mussina is clearly the superior pitcher because "they traded for Johnson to be their ace".


Anyways I hope we can go on a run after this game like we did after Cleveland shellacked us.
