You mean you weren't born a Yankee fan? You are a convert? Where did you go wrong?


No convert here. Never liked any team before the Yanks.
My earliest Yankee memory is Thurman running at full speed after a foul ball and falling head first in the dugout..

That figures. I should have known that what would turn you on to the team was somebody falling on his head.


No, it is an example of someone doing whatever it takes to win.
You listening PAYrod?



And of course................

my first baseball memory was watching Dick Radatz, "The Monster" on the hill for the BoSox. I just loved that nickname.

Then, in '67, I thought we were going to win it...then, in '75, I thought...

ahhhh, nevermind.

It's funny that you say that because, despite all of the success he had with the Yankees, it seems that his years with the Mets are what people remember about him.


Only Mets fans remember him more for being their "lovable loser" (his Mets came in last for all 4 years he managed them) than for becoming the only person to manage a team to five consecutive World Series championships (and winning a total of 7) with the Yankees.

After which, they fired him...

In New Yor, the only place that he had any real success, he is remembered as a Met manager over a Yankee manager. That had a lot to do with the press as he was the only Met worth interviewing in those days.


Well, I realize that New York is the center of the universe, to a New Yorker , but I remember Casey from the time I was 5 years old (it's a little fuzzy before that) when my dad would teach me the whole Yankee lineup, with Casey at the helm.

At that time I figured he sat on the right hand side of God, since the Yankees ruled the world then. I'll always remember him as the Yankee's skipper.

American League Champion 10 out of 12 years. World Champion 7 times (5 consecutive). Not too shabby.

It's over



http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20070221&content_id =1809854&vkey=spt2007news&fext=.jsp&c_id=nyy

TAMPA, Fla. -- The Yankees have spoken optimistically this week about hoping to see Bernie Williams walk into their Spring Training clubhouse. They can probably stop waiting.
Williams has apparently rejected the Yankees' offer of a non-roster invitation to camp and is not expected to report to the team's Legends Field facility. His agent, Scott Boras, informed The Associated Press of Williams' intentions.

"Other than the invite, there wasn't any information that led him to believe he would be a member of the team," Boras told The AP on Tuesday. "He's continuing to work out [and] will wait to see if their position changes."

Though the Yankees had still not been officially informed of Williams' decision by late Tuesday afternoon, general manager Brian Cashman said that Williams' absence was already a foregone conclusion.

"If he wanted to be here, he'd be here," Cashman said. "You'd have to be stupid not to interpret the answer. He's given us the answer."

Yankees manager Joe Torre said that Williams, 38, was hurt by his nearly non-existent standing within the club's blueprints.

A 16-year Major League veteran, Williams had spent his entire professional career in the Yankees organization, signing with the club as a free agent in 1985 and making his big-league debut in 1991.

A .297 career hitter, Williams developed into a five-time American League All-Star and was a member of four World Series championship teams.

He batted .281 with 12 home runs and 61 RBIs in 131 games for New York last season, playing more than expected when outfielders Hideki Matsui and Gary Sheffield went down to injuries.

Cashman said this week that the emergence of young outfielder Melky Cabrera contributed to making Williams an expendable piece. The Yankees also intend to carry seven relief pitchers and are entertaining a platoon at first base, filling up roster space that could have gone to Williams as a fifth outfielder.

Cashman said he understood Williams' decision but said there was little else he could have offered.

"I respect the fact that he's chosen not to take it," Cashman said. "Now we're focusing on the players who have completed their physicals and are working hard to help this team in '07."

Torre said he spoke via telephone with Williams last week and urged him to accept the invitation, promising the outfielder that there was an opportunity to make the club. If there was not a chance, Torre said he told Williams he wouldn't be coaxing him into attendance.

"I'm waiting for him to call me, and if he doesn't, then he certainly has the right to make decisions," Torre said on Tuesday. "I feel content that I pretty much told him everything I needed to tell him. We talked for an extensive period of time last week and I don't think I missed anything as far as giving him the ability to make this club."

Torre cautioned Williams that, with the Yankees' exhibition opener approaching on March 1, time was essential.

Williams has said that he will remain in baseball shape by working out near his Westchester, N.Y., home, but Torre said that is not an acceptable substitute for taking live batting practice and interacting with his Yankees teammates.

"The longer it goes -- especially when we start playing games (on March 1) -- the less opportunity he's going to have to show his wares, basically," Torre said.

Some Yankees players, like Derek Jeter, have said that they can not relate to what Williams is going through. Catcher Jorge Posada tried repeatedly but was unsuccessful in reaching Williams and said that given a similar consideration, he would have accepted the invitation and attempted to win a job.

Torre said that Williams' personality may have played a role in his reluctance to accept the Yankees' invitation.

Regarded as a cerebral, studious player, Williams delighted fans with his soft-spoken nature and his creative interests. Already an accomplished jazz guitarist, Williams has released a CD and periodically performs at live concerts.

"I don't think there's anything about Bernie that could surprise me -- take that as a plus or a minus," Torre said. "That's just his personality and just him, basically. He's very different in that he's not your typical baseball player, and that's probably why he was a little more sensitive than other players would have been in this situation."

..Shouldn't end this way, but I'm shocked the Yankees are bending over backwards to accomadate Bernie...not like them.
He's so sensitive.
I'm nor sure though it's over...Bernie can still surprise us...he's been for 16 years now.
