I love the fact that there are still boo birds in Yankee stadium when A-rod comes to bat after what he has done at the start of this season. I thought it was silly before but now it is just ignorant. Spoiled fans who are never happy...it's the Yankee way I guess. Greatest and most informed fans anywhere I have heard on sports center time and time again. RRRRIIIIGGGGHHHHHTTTTTT!.

Spoiled snot-nosed Yankee fans 01, thats all they are!

This weekend was proposterous, a disaster and just flat out wrong. Friday a bunch of bullpen janks got shelled for a bitter, air deflating defeat. Saturday was a hangover from Friday. And Sunday the rookie lefty got "chased" out of Fenway. Pitching a decent game until launch time, Chase Wright finally had found a rhythem. All night he was getting behind hitters 1-0, 2-0 and the pitch count was rising. Seemed he had found his groove. Then, disaster struck. I forget but the pecking order was something like Manny, Drew, Lowell and Varitek, all homers. That would be 1. 2. 3. 4 in a row. Backtobacktobacktoback! Holy fat, what in blue haiti's happened? Then, in comes "police academy" Proctor, who got hammered Friday btw. Well, Sunday was no different than Friday. Looked more like the Proctor from Police Academy: Yankees On Patrol. Where was Commandant Lassard or SGT. Harris? Mahoney and Tackleberry? Hooks and Jones? Hell, i'll even take the bullpen team of Sweetchuck and Zed right now!

Another loss.

ARod is immortal.

Erin Andrews fed a manta ray.

I wish I was a manta ray.

Where's Roger?

Where's our brass?

Where's our pitching?

ARod hit number 13.

ARod hit number 14.

ARod is the man.

Why didnt we throw at Boston hitters?

Can Guidry still pitch?

Hughes Thursday.

Boston in the Bronx.

Where's Roger??

Hopefully they make it into October.

His salary is only half of the Royals payroll. And I don't think anybody even deserves the minimum salary to play for pay.

It's funny how people already have the Yankees playing in October. It's Awesome, like their bull pen. Need Mussina and Pavano back, and Clemons would be a good addition. If Jason Giambi wants Clemons so bad, why doesn't he take a pay cut and pay the ROcket to come save the day?

"His salary is only half of the Royals payroll."

The Yankees aren't the only ones paying A-Rod. THe Rangers still pay most of his salary. Look it up. I am trying to find it.

Roy: what's the minimum, 3 million? sounds like you want to be stuck back in the 80's. Where do you want the money to go, owners? Better franks? Maybe lay-z boy seats in the stands? Bottom line is you should be paid on how you produce. Period. ARod should be paid like AGordon? Please!

t4coming: I believe the Rangers are responsible for around 8 million this year.

I'd be happy to be stuck in the 80's. The Royals were consistently winning then.

Lower salaries = lower ticket prices, concessions, parking, etc.

My point about the minimum salary is that it would take the average person years to make that.

6 in a row. Oh, and Boston is on it's way to town.

The rookie Phillip Hughes was on the bump for his first appearence. Not a bad start going 4, giving up 4 earned and striking out 5. He was just as good as 18 mill a year Mussina and 12 mill Pavano. Too bad the offense took the night off and expected Hughes to throw a no-no at "The House".

No moral victories though. Not when you drop 6 in a row with Boston flyin' in.

The suggestion box is open.

It's interesting how much the Yankees and Royals have in common right now.

My brother had a conversation with a Yankees fan this past weekend. The guy hates A-Rod because "he's not a team player" like Jeter and wishes he would be traded.

chill. only things they have in common is their record. And we all know who is more capable of puttin distance in between that.

All the "trade ARod" gummin is a joke. The "team player" analogy in baseball shouldnt be leaned on as much as other sports.
