the long season is underway, and soon the team will be on the road.

Q - who will hit the last home run at this Yankee stadium?
A-Rod ?


Q - with love for all the pitchers, what might be the prospects of the Hall of Fame for Mussina?
Yes, maybe, or not a chance ???

I realize many good ballplayers do not qualify for the HOF.

I think A-Rod is a good bet.  He's prolly the odds on favorite with all the home runs he hits.

I guess Moose has an outside chance of making the HOF.  He would most likely need the 300 win mark, and he's 49 away after last night's performance.  Might be asking a lot though.  He's going to be 40 this year, so even if he averaged 15 wins a year, which may be too many for him at this point in his career, he would have to pitch for another 3+ years.  Plus, his contract with the Yanks is up this year, so he'll be a free agent.  Will a good team, meaning a team that wins a lot of games, take a chance on a 40-year old pitch with a mid-80s fastball?  Not too sure....

Stepping away from the HOF talk, as a Yanks fan, I loved the way he pitched last night.  It was hard to watch him struggle so much last year.  Hopefully this year he can master his breaking balls, change up, and pitching on the corners so he can get us a bunch of wins.

Here's another question for all of you Yankee fans: How long will Hank give Joe Girardi to win a championship before they fire him?!

Hank doesn't have the old man's fire and backbone, so I figure Girardi will be around a while.

this might be wishful thinking on my part -
Girardi around for 10+ years with 5+ World Series championships.


I think the Yankees are making enough profits. No worries there. And the payroll is starting to stabilize.
So it is just a question of whether they have quality seasons and strong in the playoffs.
I count on them doing that. If not, maybe he could be gone given all their resources.
Not sure who could do better.
And he has the support of the players so far. Hope that continues for years.

[ would love to see how Coach G would handle a Reggie/fiery player ]

Basicly, he should have at least 4 years or until the Red Sox could win another Series.
Damn.

Which will happen sooner than you want but not as soon as I would like.

Santana still has an era under 2. But already he has a loss.
I hope it wont be that kind of season for him.



See ya at the all-star game. Where is that?

If it is, it will be "deja vu all over again" for him.  How many years did he toil in Minnesota with a good, but not great team?  How many times did he have great games, with no run support?!  Granted, they are two totally different teams, insofar as the Mets can pay for talent and talent left Minnesota because they can't pay!

Two things...

First off, I'm glad to report that it seems that Stephen A Smith is leaving ESPN radio to concentrate on his TV career.    Michael Kay will be starting at 3pm starting Mon.   :mrgreen:


Secondly, I was going to have a small get-together on Fri at my apt to watch the Yanks and Sox with a few ppl in my building.   EVERYONE cancelled out on me for various reasons.  (no reflection on me I hope)

I'm still in the mood to have some ppl over, so I'd like to extend a late invite to TRX, KidMurdock and Paratactical to come watch the game at my place in 32" of HD, five speaker, surround-stereo spendor!  :mrgreen:   BYOB.   Dogs courtesy of me and George Foreman.

If you're game, PM me for address, etc.

Game time is 8pm thanks to the magic of DVR.   (I need the extra time to straighten up)

GO YANKS!!

Sad thing is that on his last start, he was also the only Run Batted In as well.
Mark my words, if this season ends up worse than last season, I'm going to have a mental breakdown.
