Super Poll: Which is the better management team?

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Someone should pay attention



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?

GET THIS..... CASHMAN WAS ON MICHAEL KAY'S SHOW TODAY, AND HE SAID ALL THE COACHES WANTED GLEYBER TORRES TO PLAY SHORTSTOP IN APRIL BUT "HE" HAD TO CANCEL THAT IDEA BECAUSE "HE" NEEDS MORE TIME TO EVALUATE...... CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS SHIT?..... IT IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN SAYING ALL ALONG THE LAST FEW YEARS....IT'S CONFIRMED, BUT HARD TO BELIEVE......BRIAN CASHMAN, WHO HAS NO MAJOR OR MINOR LEAGUE PLAYING EXPERIENCE IS OVERRIDING ALL THE COACHES, GIRARDI, AND EVEN THE OWNER ON ALL PLAYER EVALUATION!!!!! ......HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?????? ...... OF COURSE, HE IS ALSO BEHIND THIS AARON JUDGE/AARON HICKS DEBACLE....... WE MUST RUN BRIAN CASHMAN OUT OF TOWN....I DON'T KNOW HOW YET......BUT WE MUST FIND A WAY, WE MUST.

This Judge thing has me geschnarfled. How is it even possible? Oh, yeah...Cashman said a year ago that he thought Hicks was one o' them there late bloomers who was gonna turn into Cinderella's coach from a pumpkin if we just let him develop in his own time. What pictures does Hicks have? What copy of whose incognito web browsing history? Who left their computer's video camera on when using same?

If Judge gets bumped in favor of Hicks, because we also have to keep Carter on the roster, and Ellsbury, and Headley, and I must sadly say even Gardner, and they don't leave any room if Mr. Perennial Potential is teacher's pet, I will easily ignore this team. If Montgomery isn't the fifth starter, I will easily ignore this team. My hand on Joey's Binders, I will.

In fact, the purported youth movement amounts to...what? Sanchez and Bird? And Severino (another flameout year ahead)? No Judge, no Wade, no Montgomery (probably), no Ref (eh). I'm with Anon, this season is already shaping up to be just more bullshit and its resulting mediocrity via overpaid, underperforming has-beens and hardly-ever-weres. But they're all somehow inviolate ($$$), and the kids get more "seasoning." And we get bored to death.

Harumph. Ah say, harumph

And honest to God, I didn't even have a single drink tonight.

John M.:

It's too bad your comment above wasn't offered as a full-fledged post. Very well done, particularly "geschnarfled" *.

Dress it up with a fun image, add a cup of coffee, and that's a fun morning read.

Nicely done.


* I will hereafter use geschnarfled in business meetings as a polite alternative to the usual expressions.

Ditto,, ditto,,, FUCKING DITTO to all of the above comments!
My boycott of paying to watch this team remains in effect, it's absolutely HEARTBREAKING!

el duque said...

I agree, John M, with LBJ's thought. If you're going to file such well conceived comments, you might as well drop it as a post. Doesn't have to be longer. Doesn't have to be factual. (Hell, when am I factual?) This is about emotion, folks. This is about the Yankees.

Not trying to get more work out of you, John M. Just saying.
