    I mentioned the 27 championships because you're saying they fail so often. They win once every 4 years. You can't really expect more from a team, in any sport. Even the invincible Heat lost to the Mavericks and should have lost to the Spurs. Plus, MLB has changed. Lots of teams spend money like the Yankees. How should the Yankees be expected to win every year when a third of the league has spent the same amount of money? And nice skid mark analogy. Really enlightening.

    How do you equate failure? Is there an alternate universe backwards way that we don't know about??

    Yankees have:

    A.) made post season 51 times in 112 seasons. ( __%)
    B.) won division18 times (divisions since 1969) so that's out of 44 chances? ( __%)
    C.) won the "American League" pennant 40 times ( __%)
    D.) won world series 27 times out of 40 chances ( __%)

    Please do the percentages for me. I don't want to make a "mistake"....

    Lmao

    Dude, you're a good Cowboys fan but your Yankees hatred/jealousy is out of control. They most certainly didn't buy the Core Four or Bernie Williams. Trading Roberto Kelly for Paul O'Neill was just smart. Other teams spend big money and lose. Yanks do it and win more than the others. Sorry that your Orioles have only won 3 World Series and haven't won since 1983. Call the Yanks' TWENTY SEVEN championships not as significant as their failures all you want, but it's the greatest, most successful franchise in the history of baseball. I'm still blown away by your anti-Jeter nonsense from another board.
    Oh look, the Yanks are in 1st place and their pitching has been looking great. Enjoy. :)

    Was surprised they but up 10 last night against the Rays. Also glad to see that CC only gave up 2 runs in7 innings. Little worried about him.

    The Yanks are 10-6 for like what? The 4th season in a row?

    Certainly a much better team than last year's. How much better? We will see.

    But CC in Tropicana, he's been terrible there. Was really happy to see him pitch so well there, especially off of what we've seen from him thus far.

    It all depends. It definitely looks hopeful at the moment. It depends on a few things though:

    Can CC get it together?
    Will the young arms (Tanaka and Pineda) keep pitching like aces?
    Will Solarte keep playing like the Rookie of the Year?
    Will some of the power hitters (Tex, McCann) get healthy and/or step it up?

    But if CC can step it up and the young arms continue to dominate, this could be one of the best pitching staffs in baseball. I also like their bullpen. Big fan of Bentances. Been waiting for him to turn into a stud for a long time. Hopefully Banuellos can come up to the majors next year.

    Agreed. And yet Girardi had my vote for coach of the year last year... Let's hope that is spilling over to this year.

    Nova needs to go. Has been garbage from the start.

    As bad as they were today (16-1 loss), I still love Bentances. He was the only bright spot today. 2 innings pitched, no hits, still has a 0.0 ERA on the season. Best bullpen player so far but I'd love to see him crack the starting rotation. Never thought Nova was good. He should have never been invested in.

    Nova on the DL with Ligament Tear in his Elbow. Looks like he's on the shelf for the season or longer perhaps, don't know.

    Yankees will have to call somebody up or make a trade.

    This. Is. Absolutely. Hilarious!

    This may be the funniest post of the year so far.

    Delusional? Much?

    BTW, when did he give up his manager position to become a coach?

    It looks like Nova is out for the rest of year (not confirmed but very possible).

    I'm sorry to see the guy get injured but he's been pretty awful so far this season and his overall inconsistency as often caused me to want to call him Phil Hughes Jr.

    You too, Happy Easter.

    A great end to the day will be an Orioles win over the Sux!
