So El Duque is taking bows this morning for posting the news that Tyler Wade has been sent away. Down to the coal mines, so to speak.
He deftly ignored the fact that on Monday, March 27, 2017 at 2:14pm, I predicted :
Tyler Wade will not be our starting shortstop on opening day.
This was an early release from my archives, in response to Duque's, " get ready everybody," plea for our predictions on the 2017 Yankee season.
All I am saying is that sometimes, " editorial power," can corrupt even the best of the best. And they take credit from those of us, with boots on the ground, working the fields, and talking to the players and coaches in the bars, after hours.
Give no credit to the guy who broke the story, by simply ignoring the facts. That is Kingmaker editorial policy.
To those of you with little faith, therefore, await with caution what I have to say about the 2017 Yankee season and mark, carefully, what befalls.
I am bitterly disappointed, by the way, about this predictable, stupid and morale destroying move made by Cashman. The Yankees are not on a youth movement, they remain on a safe, and predictable path to mediocrity. Led by a bunch of proven failures, rewarded for their incompetence.
And I will shoot the first person who says, or writes, " Tyler is a great prospect but we want him to play a full season in AAA. It will help his development."
What the fuck else is new?
