...reading excerpts from "Pride and Preassure" due out in about 9-10 days...story about the '06 Yankees, by Doubleday.
Some juicy stuff about Jeter, and ARod..they actually had to be pulled apart in the clubhouse in '05
They were fighting,... for all of those who want to go there

Young commenting on free agency:

"I'm sure it's great to see what's out there," Young said. "I did not want to go somewhere else and then see that Texas is in the World Series. We have a great core here and we're all committed. I want to be here and help promote a winner."


yeah........ ok.

when they're in a new ballpark and actually learn to spend some of that money on good pitching.

Not trying to bash the Yankees as I said the same thing about the Bonds-Kent BS from a couple of years ago, but does anyone really care how A-Rod and Jeter get along? Is it important? That soap opera stuff detracts from the season and causes riftss in the clubhouse. It is all caused by writers who are too lazy to look for a real story.



That's the NY media for you. Personally I dont care if they HATE each other, as long as the team wins.
Look at the 77-78 Yanks.. Not exactly a harmonious clubhouse

This book writer (Morresey) is a Post writer, and he even takes shots at The NY Daily News..which is a cheap shot. He attacks every one from Jeter, to Mike and The Mad Dog , but it is an interesting read. We're not naive to this stuff.
Did Ruth and Gehrig get along, or Joe D and Mantle? Thurman and Reggie?..well, no one liked Reggie.
The Yankees are an easy sell.

Did Ho park get his Visa..he can't pitch in front of a paying crowd till he does.
No problem there from what I hear at Port. St Lonesome

Help me out here folks. Am I missing something?

I was reading a report on ESPN about D-Maz's 'debut', pitching 2 innings against mighty Boston College. In the first inning the first batter hits a double. The next batter grounds out. Then, according to the ESPN 'reporter', "Matsuzaka struck out the next two batters... on four pitches."

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/spring2007/news/story?id=2786171

This guy is so good, he doesn't need 3 strikes per batter!!!

Tomorrow's Headline: "In the spirit of International cooperation & harmony Commissioner Bud Selig has declared that D-Maz only needs two strikes per batter."

I don't know, but one thing I bet he is NOT going to do is ..Cover The Yankees this year as a beat reporter again.
As interesting as these excerpts are, I feel these are things that happened in the clubhouse, and should stay in the clubhouse.
How are reporters going to get the confidence of a player after this hits the Bookstores?
He tells of how Jeter doesn't treat the ballboy well...maybe he caught him at a bad moment, or the kid needed a boot to stay on the ball. From the staff I know, they say Jeter is a Prince.
Only a Player should be entitled to write about anything that goes on behind clubhouse doors, and even that is borderline.

I just think clubhouse stuff should stay behind closed doors.

Unless there is come kind of illegal activities going on (roids, gambling.. stuff like that)

But thats just my opinion..

Anything outside the clubhouse doors..yes, i agree OTF. But the clubhouse is the Players sancuary. It's us behind our home doors with our families when we want our privacy.
They are Public figures, and role models whether they like it or not. But if a player can't have private moments of trantrums between themselves to keep their club(house) in order without everyone finding out about it due to a reporter who is trying to be a fly on the wall, rather than a face to face beat reported, which he is getting paid for I think players are going to be hesitant to open up to these guys. They are in there to get things 'On" the record, not ambush them in a book with dirt they can't dispute.

That's why we play baseball with a glove on just one hand...so we can throw back.

I think it's a cheap shot book, but I understand our Constitution, and it's ammendments, and his Rights. It's going to sell well I'm guessing, we all love this sh***

But it will stir it up in regards to Clubhouse Privacy I'm thinking. Not for nothing, but due to my business I have been fortunate enough to have observed them in their natural habitat sort a speak, and they hold that clubhouse as their fortress of solitude. I have been in the bowels of the Stadium a hundred times..had access to everywhere at time's. One door is ALWAYS off limits.. Pete's Clubhouse Door.
I think he abused his privledge. Sorry it took me so long to just say that.

Tell me something. How good would Mantle have been if he took care of himself? IMO, he would have been the best player ever. So what went on off the field was an issue. On the other hand, things like the Peterson-Kekich wife swap don't need to be covered like they were.


Mantle wasn't felled by lifestyle as much as injuries, IMO. Yes, he didn't take care of himself with his late night drink-a-thons, but the toll on his body, particularly the legs, was injuries & the reason he dropped off later in his career.

Ok, maybe Mantle's lifestyle affected his play.
But what is goin on with PAYrod and Jeter is not.

Mantle admitted that his lifestyle was a major contributing factor. He didn't take care of himself and as a result he took longer to recover from injuries. There are colorful stories about Mantle hitting a home run while he was hungover. But how many times did he strike out in that condition?


Mantle admiitted he should have taken better care of himself. He didnt follow through with his rehab after injuries. He also said drinking played a major roll in this which affected his performance. This is his words.

I think he could have been the best too or right there!

I disagree A-Rod let it bother him which affected his performance. Remember all the errors fielding? Remember the times he choked in clutch situations? He posted good numbers but not when it really counted. He was trying to hard to to be liked by Jeter and Jeter just cut him off after those comments in 2001.
This year could be different he finally accepted and acknowledged that they are not friends like they use to be. He just needs to play ball and not worry what everone thinks about him!
