Maybe the Yanks ( or Sox) could loan Roger to Houston when they play SF


Maybe the 'stros could activate Ryan for a game during that series. Roger could bean barry* one night and Nolan could charge the batter's box the next.

You may have to. He doesn't sound like he is ready to hang 'em up yet and he Yankees don't have a spot for him.


The word on the street that I am hearing is that he is going to keep working out and wait for a call from the Yankees.

Of course if that happens it means the Yanks are in tough spot with a hole that they need him to fill. Hopefully they'll have to call on him to play center...not that I'd ever wish an injury upon anyone.

Oh man.. this does NOT sound good

Bernie was one thing.. but this is something much much MUCH worse


http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20070212&content_id =1800193&vkey=news_nyy&fext=.jsp&c_id=nyy


TAMPA -- Mariano Rivera acknowledged the absence of longtime teammate Bernie Williams on Monday, calling it "strange."
Could players be saying the same thing about the Yankees closer one year from now? Rivera's commitment to the team expires after 2007, and while he said he would love to retire in New York, he realizes that scenario is not yet certain.

"Definitely, I want to finish my career here," Rivera said. "But if they don't give me the respect that I deserve, [if] I have to move on, I have to move on. The Yankees always give me respect. When it comes to these times, I don't like to talk about it."

Rivera -- with Williams' apparent parting, now the longest-tenured Yankees big leaguer -- met the media near the front entrance of the Yankees' Minor League complex, his words draped by the background of passing traffic.

Though he appears to have given some thought to his baseball fate, Rivera insisted that he is not upset. Rivera's focus, he said, remains on helping the 2007 Yankees accomplish their goal of a World Series championship.

That mission begins Tuesday, as pitchers and catchers officially report to Legends Field. As Rivera noted, he is under contract with the team, and would not let any uncertainty concerning his future creep into his current obligations.

"I'm not that kind of player," Rivera said. "I play for the team. I'm a team player. I don't have to think about that stuff."

Losing Mo would be tough on the Yanks, but that's not really a concern for us because the Sox are now his Daddy.

LMAO...Mo is NOT going anywhere!!
Man, Febuary is such a slow sports month they have to come up with something!
Mo, and Bernie will retire Yankees.
I'm as sure of this as I was when I said they would never stop the World Series in 1994

These days, I am not sure of anyone staying put on any one team. There is no loyalty on either side, from management or players. Free Agency has ruined the game.

You gotta live somehow. We need to take what we can get after last year's flop.

why did I even bring up "that" series..I'm only going to depress myself.

But you can rest assured (well, not you) the Yankees will sign Mo. I just wish Mo would have just said something like..."I'm sure we will get it done, the Yankees have always taken care of me." But this could be the last contract he signs, so I can't blame him for wanting to get every last cent he deserves...and will probably get
He already made it clear he wants to stay here, and retire a Yankee. He also went as far as to say he wants to still be here when the new Stadium opens in '09.
I swear, here and now. If the Yankees ever lost Mo due to their doings this year, and he moves on.. I will donate my season tickets and never attend another game.

On that note..it just came to me. Not trying to peddle here..just offering up to those who might want. Getting rid of Yankees tickets is not difficult.
If anyone is visiting NYC this season, and would like to see a Yankees game, you can PM me and see if I have tickets available. We dont go to all the games, and I sell off alot. It is an almost impossible ticket to get as they are basically Sold Out every game. I have 4 seats in the tier boxs right behind 3rd base 7 rows from the railing, on the aisle.
I'm so looking forward to this year, a lot of Bad blood is off the team, and it has more of a feel of the mid 90's. Still too much of an All Star team, but there is some youth on this team which breeds enthusiasm thoughout the team.
I don't know what's going to happen with Bernie. He doensn't want to play anywhere else, but he doesn't want to retire. Tough call.

I think they should move Abreu( contract is up anyway) and let Melky start. He has earned it.

Then they can sign Bernie play one more year as a 4th outfielder.

I also see that Jorge's contract is up as well.
I dont see him leaving though.. Especailly since we really dont have anyone waiting in the wings.
Wish they disnt trade Navarro for Johnson

Oh and one more thing......


PITCHERS AND CATCHERS HAVE REPORTED


Well, beat the drum and hold the phone - the sun came out today!
We're born again, there's new grass on the field.
A-roundin' third, and headed for home, it's a brown-eyed handsome man;
Anyone can understand the way I feel.

[Chorus:]
Oh, put me in, Coach - I'm ready to play today;
Put me in, Coach - I'm ready to play today;
Look at me, I can be Centerfield.

Well, I spent some time in the Mudville Nine, watchin' it from the bench;
You know I took some lumps when the Mighty Casey struck out.
So Say Hey Willie, tell Ty Cobb and Joe DiMaggio;
Don't say "it ain't so", you know the time is now.

[Chorus]

Yeah! I got it, I got it!

Got a beat-up glove, a homemade bat, and brand-new pair of shoes;
You know I think it's time to give this game a ride.
Just to hit the ball and touch 'em all - a moment in the sun;
(pop) It's gone and you can tell that one goodbye!






Let the opening day countdown begin

Melky is young and still getting better

Abreu has peaked - He IS a good player though.

But all the Yankee bashers are always riding us about the Yanks being OLD, so I think we should get younger

I was reading an article today that was kind of funny. It said that only the Giants could get younger by adding 34 year old Dave Roberts to play center field.

Look at some of their pickups this year, Aurillia, Klesko, roberts. Add them to Bonds, Durham and Vizquel and you have a pretty good spokesteam for Geritol and/or Ben Gay.

The Bleachers are a trip if you have never been there...can be fun if you don't go in battle gear (other teams shirts). Last OTD got rained out, was going to be a good one too..'77-'78 Yankees.
