But thats just my opinion..



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.


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


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!

I don't think that had anything to do with Jeter or anything like that. Some guys just don't do well under pressure and A-Rod is one of those guys. But before anyone really jumps on him, without him the Yankees may not have won the AL East.


Can't disagree with that. The most glaring stat from '06 on A-Rod is that he grounded into 22 Double-plays. Despite having 121 RBI's (4th in the league) it shows that he was pressing with men on base. That being said, I'd rather have him on my team than competing against me.

You are amazing. You think a slap hitter like Melky Cabrera is a keeper and you would throw A-Rod away.


Yup.
Never liked him, never will.

Melky is a young kid with tons of potential who busts his ass every game.
I dont see that with Arod.

C'mon now... if I dislike a Yankee, you KNOW I really dislike him... LOL

Actually, he was thinking of a comeback last year. Glad he didn't though.

We have no pitchers over the age of 38.

Mmmmmm Boog's BBQ......

Yankee Stadium South?............... I'm sorry but Camden yards in no way resembles a giant toilet bowl I believe most of it's attributes can be drawn from the great green church up north known as Fenway Park.

Isn't Boog's awesome?
And in reference to Yankee Stadium South. I was referring to how we invade it during Yankee games..has to be a 1/3, at least. And for the first few years we had like a 700 winning pct there.
But no, it resembles Yankee Stadium not in the least. I can't decide between the Jake, or Camden as the best new parks in the country...both incredible.

The Jake's nice (Camden Jr.), but Camden's in a better part of town. And Camden is not like Fenway either, thank God. It ain't decrepit & falling apart (like the ownership of the O's )

I've seen some games at Camden where the Yankee contingent is probably more than the O's fans. I'd say 1/4 of the 'Home' crowd there is yuppies with cellphones in their ears that could care less who's playing. The Nat's games in DC are like that, only worse.

And yes, Boog's is the best!!!

Anyone else excited to see this guy pitch? Daisuke Matsuzaka could end up being the ace for the Sox this year. I'm ready for baseball. Go Braves.

Spring Training. But I do want to see this kid pitch. There was a big article on him in the USA Today over the weekend. The sky is the limit with this kid. His work ethic is incredible. In the high school championship he threw 257(250 something) pitches in three days. He pitched a complete game first day. Relief on second day. Then complete game but 17 innings on the third day

The Phillies have a good enough offense, but, just like last year, pitching will be their problem. That isn't unlike the Mets. The Mets offense isn't as good as Philly, but their pitching, and in particular their bullpen, is better. It should be a closer race than last year unless Hamels arm falls off as I expect it to do in June. He has never pitched more than 152 innings in any pro season. Hard throwers who don't have many innings under their belt and haven't built up any stamina seem to have problems. Think Prior, Wood and go back about 45 years to a young Roger Clemens.



The Phils bullpen is definitely going to cause some white knuckle moments
but could surprise. We need Gordon to stay healthy and I think we're going to see him
used more conservatively. He was burnt by the all-star break last year.
Looks like we have a set-up man by committee right now, unless someone steps up
in spring training. Alfonseca could be a dark horse if he returns to form. Early reports are
promising. I like their starters and can see at least 3 of them with 15 wins or more
Hamels' health will always be a question until he pitches a full season, but I gotta like
the fact that he pitched better in the 2nd half than the first half and I wouldn't consider him a power pitcher. Yeah he throws hard but he hardly relies on just his heat.
The kid has 3 "out" pitches and one of the nastiest change-ups already.
The offense is what it is, but they still need to improve with RISP and I want to see
them more aggressive on the base paths and it seems like Davey Lopes is getting
them ready for that. Anyway, should hopefully be an exciting.
Looking forward to some baseball talk.
Good luck to all.
