Deja Vu Again

I turn on the TV.

It is the top of the third inning.

We are down 2-0.

I do my calculation on the probability that the Yankees can come back to tie, and then win the game.

I turn off the TV.

WATCHING THIS "SHIT SHOW" UNFOLD, IT'S EASY TO SEE THIS TEAM IS A DEAD DOG.....HOW DO WE CHANGE IT?......ONLY ONE WAY...... BRING UP BEN GAMEL (.321)....BRING UP AARON JUDGE (CLOSE TO .300)....BRING UP GARY SANCHEZ (.250-.260-.270? I'M NOT SURE)....I WOULD EVEN BRING UP ROB REFSNYDER (.219).... .219 IS 69 POINTS HIGHER THAN CHASE FUCKING HEADLEY....EVEN IF THEY ALL SUCK, IT STILL WILL BE AN IMPROVEMENT..IT HAS TO BE!!!............ IF THEY, (GIRARDI AND CASHMAN AND THE POWERS THAT BE), THINK THAT THIS TEAM WILL TURNAROUND WITH THE SAME PERSONNEL, THEY ARE EVEN DUMBER THAN I THOUGHT, BECAUSE THERE IS NO CHANCE.........IT'S THE SAME OFFENSE THAT WAS A DEAD DOG AT THE END OF LAST SEASON....REMEMBER?....THE OFFENSE THAT COULDN'T SCORE ANY RUNS AND WENT SOMETHING LIKE 2- 8 AT THE END OF THE REGULAR SEASON...THE OFFENSE THAT GOT SHUTOUT IN OUR "PLAYOFF" GAME AND ONLY HAD 3 HITS..........THE HILARIOUS PART IS THEY PROBABLY WON'T DO 1 THING....AND THAT, MY FRIENDS IS INSANITY.

I agree. We need the wheels to come off the bus. Only then, will Girardi stop mouthing the same crap about how good this team is, that they will snap out of this funk soon, etc.

And we do need the Yankees to bring up a wagon load of the guys you named. At least make it interesting. Learn something about the future.

Last night, Cone ( or someone ) said that the Yankees need to bring up some new blood, a " Robbie Cano" type, etc. I almost spit out my cheese doodles.

Wouldn't that be great?

Has any one pointed out to him that Cashman has done such a crap job that not only do we not have any " Robbie Cano" types, but also we don't have anyone at all?

Still, change is refreshing.

This team stinks from staleness.

COMPLETE INSANITY, WOULD BE TO DO NOTHING........WATCH US SCORE 14 RUNS AGAINST PRICE TONIGHT, AND THE FRONT OFFICE, GIRARDI, CASHMAN, AND THE MEDIA WILL ALL SAY, "THE YANKEE OFFENSE IS BACK!"......... THIS OFFENSE IS DONE!.....PITCHERS WITH NO STUFF, SHUT US DOWN....PITCHERS WITH AVERAGE STUFF, SHUT US DOWN, PITCHERS WITH GREAT STUFF SHUT US DOWN....... WE MUST CHANGE, LIKE YOU SAY, LETS LEARN ABOUT OUR FUTURE....NOW!

WE JUST GOT SWEPT BY THE RED SOX....WE ARE 8-15..... CONGRATULATIONS HAL, BRIAN AND JOE!..... YOU ALL HAVE PLAYED THIS FRANCHISES CARD RIGHT INTO THE GROUND.....HEY HAL!...THINK OF IT THIS WAY.....ALL THE WORK YOUR FATHER DID, COURTING FREE AGENTS, FIGHTING FOR SUPREMACY OF THE NEW YORK FAN, FIGHTING FOR YANKEE FANS UNTIL THIS FRANCHISE HIT THE TOP FOR ABOUT 15-18 CONSECUTIVE YEARS OF WINNING BASEBALL AND PRIDE....I REMEMBER THE PRIDE I FELT WATCHING US IN 1998 (THE GREATEST YEAR I EVER SAW)...I REMEMBER THE PRIDE I FELT BEATING THE METS IN 2000....I EVEN FELT PRIDE IN LOSING THE 2001 WORLD SERIES (WE ALMOST MADE IT, WE GAVE IT OUR ALL).......WE KEPT MAKING THE PLAYOFFS AND CAME UP SHORT A BUNCH OF TIMES, BUT THERE WAS STILL PRIDE...THEN CAME 2009, PRIDE REMAINED.....SINCE GEORGE PASSED, A COMPLETE TRANSFORMATION AND REVERSAL HAS TAKEN PLACE.....AND IT HURTS. IT HURTS ON MANY LEVELS.... AS A DIE VERY HARD FAN, I ASSUMED ANY SON OF GEORGE STEINBRENNER WITH HIS INHERITED ASSESTS WOULD PICK UP AND CONTINUE HIS FATHERS WISHES AND LEGACY.... .I WAS FOOLED, WE ALL WERE.......HAL TALKED A GOOD GAME AFTER TAKING OVER, BUT NOW HIS ACTIONS AREN'T MATCHING HIS WORDS........JUST THE FACT THAT THE METS HAVE TAKEN OVER NEW YORK ALONE, WOULD DRIVE GEORGE BERSERK (OH HOW HE HATED THE METS)!....I COULD HEAR GEORGE SCREAMING AT HAL, "YOU DON'T LET YOUR CROSSTOWN RIVALS OVERTAKE YOU!...ARE YOU AN ASSHOLE!!!...WHAT ARE YOU DOING?"..... AFTER TONIGHT'S GAME, I COULD HEAR HIM YELLING, "LAST PLACE?....WE GOT SWEPT BY THE RED SOX?...FUCK THIS!...HEADS ARE GONNA ROLL!"..................THERE'S NO PRIDE FROM HAL, AND THAT'S WHAT IT BOILS DOWN TO....AND I BELIEVE THAT IS A BIG PART OF THIS COLLAPSE.

And when the offense finally scores some runs, Eovaldi sucks and Bettances gives up the big HR for the second time in three games. Dellin actually said he takes the blame for blowing those two games that we should've won.

As good teams always find a way to win, bad teams always find a way to lose.
