The lost Yankee decade


Publius said...

First decade since 19-teens without an American League pennant for the NY Yankees. Fire Brian Cashman. Start anew.

Never gonna happen, Publius.

For management, this was close to a perfect year. Competitive enough to keep the fans watching, but not so successful that people will be demanding big raises.

Soon, we will start hearing from Cashman and the beat reporters (as if there is any difference between them), about how we Yankees fans are sooooo difficult and hard to please.

About how Boone should be manager of the year, and Coops executive of the year for all the incredible replacements he came up with.

About how this was a pretty incredible year, considering all the injuries, and how next year—oh, just wait until next year!—you know, everyone will be back and healthy, Stanton and Sanchez, and especially all the pitchers, Severino and Montgomery and The Banished One, and what an amazing farm system we have, and how there is absolutely NO reason, NO reason at all for us to go out and spend some ridiculous amount of money acquiring a top free agent like Gerrit Cole or ANYBODY else, for that matter...

After listening to a dejected Master for almost three hours I thought I might as well get up and go walk my dog.
It is great, being in the "polder" (you look it up) and see her relentlessly hunting hares and rabbits. No giving in or up, even though she hardly ever catches something. Last week a rabbit. The last few months the occasional mouse or mole.
But there is always the effort. One hundred percent commitment and running and swimming and diving without fear.

So much fun to watch (difficult enough without the help of a full moon) and even energizing.

So there I am in the dark with my headphones on to hear the ninth.
And after the elation of the general's homerun, there was the voice of the Master saying to Suzyn that "Chappie" could definitely go two innings
At that same moment I wrote an app to the love of my life that said that Chapman was known for his meltdowns.


And to cap it off there was that idiot smile of "Chappie".
Luckily I only saw that one 2 hours later when I got home.

And my dog you ask?
Nope, she didn't catch a thing, but once again she showed heart and gave it all.

Ah well.

And thank you judge for having the stones to say something you wont hear Mr cream cheese Boone say

This season was a fuckin failure...

HoraceClarke66 said...

Well, I suppose the smile was the sort of unconscious, embarrassed grin we all give when we're simply stunned by our own stupidity. But it won't wear well.

Every year, it seems, the stars of our games grow more and more oblivious to how they appear. A function of money? Of necessary isolation? I don't know, but it's too bad.

It was a good run though. A century

For me, it went sideways when they fired Joe.

But beyond that, I think training and conditioning regimes need a forensic examination and wholesale reform. IF the season was lost anywhere it was on the training table.

I think the geeks need to be cleared from the hallway and the manager should be in charge of games. If the current manager isn't up to that, find someone who is.

More and better starting pitchers. No excuses this time. Plenty of talent in the FA market. Overspend, if needed.

Paint "lay off outside pitches" in Spanish and English onto Sanchez's locker.
