"SHOULD WE BELIEVE WHAT OUR OWN EYES HAVE SEEN?"

A friend sent this in: "THE INCREDIBLE TALE OF ROB REFSNYDER".

PICTURE ME STANDING ABOVE A CROWD THAT IS LISTENING TO MY SPEECH, MUCH LIKE IN THE DAYS OF THEODORE ROOSEVELT:
 
"ARE WE TO BELIEVE WHAT US YANKEE FANS HEAR OR READ IN THE MEDIA? THAT ROB REFSNYDER IS A DETRIMENT TO THE TEAM BECAUSE HE HAS NO POSITION?.......

IS REFSNYDER A POMPOUS PERSON, AND TEAMMATE WHO FELT "ENTITLED" TO BE ON THE TEAM, AS WE HAVE BEEN LED TO BELIEVE BY SOME MEDIA WHISPERS?........

IS HE THAT BAD A FIELDER, THAT OUR TEAM WILL CONTINUALLY "PAY THE PRICE" FOR HIS EXISTENCE ON THE 24 MAN ROSTER?..........

 OR, YANKEE FANS, SHOULD WE BELIEVE WHAT OUR OWN EYES HAVE SEEN?!?........

THIS YANKEE FAN BELIEVES HE SEES A REAL HITTER WHO BATTLES THE PITCHER, AND MAKES HIM WORK, ALMOST EVERY AT BAT......

THIS YANKEE FAN BELIEVES HE SEES A HITTER WHO ROUTINELY HITS THE BALL TO THE OPPOSITE FIELD WITH EASE, SOMETIMES "JETERIAN" LIKE.........

THIS YANKEE FAN BELIEVES HE SEES AN ATHLETIC PLAYER WHO IS WORKING HARD TO TRY TO PLEASE HIS ORGANIZATION.........

THIS YANKEE FAN BELIEVES HE ACTUALLY SAW A TERRIFIC "HIGHLIGHT REEL", DIVING CATCH PLAYING 2ND BASE LAST SEASON.....

THIS YANKEE FAN ACTUALLY SAW HIM MAKE A NICE TRUE THROW TO FIRST FOR THE OUT ON A TOUGH BALL HIT UP THE MIDDLE LAST YEAR......................

THIS YANKEE FAN ACTUALLY SAW ROB REFSNYDER HIT A HOME RUN, AGAINST A RIGHT HANDED PITCHER, IN A TIGHT GAME, AGAINST THE RED SOX, IN BOSTON, WHICH TURNED OUT TO BE THE GAME WINNER FOR US..........

THIS YANKEE FAN ACTUALLY SAW REF HIT A MONSTROUS HOME RUN TO THE DEEPEST PART OF LEFT CENTER FIELD AT YANKEE STADIUM, LAST YEAR, (THE 2ND LONGEST HR ON THE TEAM LAST YEAR), A GAME IN WHICH WE WON...........

THIS YANKEE FAN ACTUALLY SAW TODAY'S GAME, IN WHICH REFSNYDER BATTLED AND BATTLED THE PITCHER, FOULING BALLS OFF, THEN DRIVING THE BALL TO THE OPPOSITE FIELD FOR A CLUTCH 2 OUT, 2 RUN DOUBLE, WHICH TURNED OUT TO BE THE BIGGEST BLOW OF THE GAME FOR US- A GAME IN WHICH WE WON- (HE ALSO PLAYED A CLEAN, EASY GAME IN RF)...........

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.....I BELIEVE I SEE A CLUTCH HITTER!!!!.....THAT IS SOMETHING THIS TEAM HAS NOT HAD IN YEARS!!!...........

I SEE A PLAYER THAT HELPS US WIN BALL GAMES!!!.........

THERE SEEMS TO BE "SOMETHING SPECIAL" ABOUT THIS REFSNYDER........

 BUT HOW, ON GOD'S GREEN EARTH, DOES OUR ASS BRASS AT THE TOP, NOT SEE WHAT OUR OWN EYES HAVE SEEN??? HOW CAN THIS PLAYER, ON A TEAM THAT CAN NOT HIT OR SCORE, NOT EVEN GET A LEGITIMATE SHOT TO CRACK THIS LINEUP??............

IS BRIAN CASHMAN SMARTER THAN ALL OF US? DOES HE SEE 'IMPERFECTIONS" THAT WE CAN'T SEE? THE ODD PART IS JOE GIRARDI MUST SEE THE SAME IMPERFECTIONS, OR ELSE HE WOULD BE SAYING, "GET THIS GUY IN MY LINEUP!".................

OUR QUESTION, YANKEE FANS, IS......IF YANKEE BRASS IS SO QUICK TO POINT TO "IMPERFECTIONS" IN REFSNYDER'S GAME, THEN HOW IN THE BLUE FUCK, DID CASHMAN AND GIRARDI ALLOW THE IMPERFECTIONS OF ONE STEPHEN DREW, FOR AN ENTIRE SEASON???.......IT MADE NO SENSE.............

AND THIS MY FRIENDS, IS WHAT WE CALL, THE INCREDIBLE TALE OF ROB REFSNYDER...........

IT'S ALMOST TIME FOR HIM TO BE DEMOTED, I MEAN, WHAT DO WE NEED HIM FOR?.............WE CAN'T DO WITHOUT DUSTIN ACKLEY......HE PLAYS 5 DIFFERENT POSITIONS!!! (ALL LIKE SHIT)............INCREDIBLE."

I don't keep up with these things as well as I should, but is there another organization in baseball that's as inept and stupid as the Yankees?

Remember, that's "in baseball." The Republican Party doesn't count.

"How in the blue fuck" indeed.

........AND THE IRONIC, MORONIC, PART OF ALL OF THIS IS, (DRUM ROLL PLEASE)!.....REFSNYDER PRACTICALLY PLAYS FOR FREE!!!..... ON A TEAM THAT IS NOW SO "COST-CONSCIOUS" !

Cashman must prove to the World and the Yankee board what a great GM he is. He only cares about players he trades for and those he purchases from scrap heaps. (Refsnyder does not fit in either category)

Girardi would have been a perfect Nazi, who only follows orders!!!
