Found June 04, 2013 on IT IS HIGH, IT IS FAR, IT IS caught:
Have you noticed that looming funnel of dark clouds on the western horizon - the one with the cow swirling around, next to the green-skinned lady on the bicycle? That's the MLB trade deadline. It's headed our way. And this year, the Yankees face a unique situation - for the Yankees anyway: Because of all our injuries, we have too many players. And a couple might interest other teams.Of course, nobody's going to give much for a guy we pulled off the scrap heap, and the jewels of our farm system are not having shiny years, so their value is low. But everybody needs pitching, and it's not hard to imagine several teams coveting a guy whose Yankee days are probably numbered anyway. Phil Hughes is that unfortunate fellow: the fly-ball pitcher in a home run bandbox. Put him in a airport-sized park, like LA or Seattle - a place where fans can't toss shelled peanuts on him from the right field seats -and Hughes might flourish. As he is a free agent next winter, we get les...

  • Get rid of him....
  • Actually I believe the best fit for him is where he has excelled before, a long relief role. When Pineda is ready to go the Yankees rotation will be CC, Kuroda, Pineda, Pettite and Phelps. Put Hughes back in the bullpen to be that guy who gives you 3 to 5 innings when a starter falters. The guy I would actually like to see them get rid of is Chamberlain, I'm sick and tired of him coming into games in key situations and making big mistakes that cost the Yankees. If he wasn't so fat maybe he could pitch more effectively.

What’s next for the 275 million dollar man?

Alex Rodriquez…I know he is the elephant in the room or the loud obnoxious friend no one wants to admit they brought to the party, but we need to talk about him. Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman gave an interview to ESPN that aired Sunday night before the team’s rain shortened loss to the Red Sox, he had a few things to say about the third baseman.

Memorable sports moment of the week – Lou Gehrig passes away from ALS

My 2013 All-Star Game Ballot

While I was watching the Yankees take down the Cleveland Indians last night (thanks, in part, to that thrilling grand slam by Mark Teixeira), I filled out my first (and probably last) All Star Ballot. For some reason, I'm not "into" voting this year. In fact, I'm not into the entire All Star Game experience this year. Perhaps it's because the festivities will...

We Need Votes

How can I vote more often?"Youk is not a Yank and never will be.  He is a sanctimonious, money grubbing has-been who hurt the Yankees when it mattered and is not helping them when it doesn't."  So what if this is illogical?Doe he ever get a key hit?Does he spend more time on rehab than in uniform?Does he make more doing nothing than all of us combined?Signing him...
