You're going with the wrong Lee man...

Yeah but the cubbies are still stupid enough to pitch to Lee. At least we're smart enough to walk D. Lee.

I predict the Cubbies to have a 5 game losing streak. :)

Mussina had nothing. We had no fielding ability. Pedro better have won.

None of the Yankee pitchers have had much this season. At least, as far as I can see it :unsure:

That's what happens when you get old guys. Johnson has been a bust, Pavano isn't handling the AL well, Mussina is either great or terrible, Brown is nothing special anymore, and Wang is still a rookie with better than decent stuff. How is that staff supposed to perform? Not to mention we're over using Sturtze like we did Gordon and Rivera last year.

I'm shocked the Steinbrenner has put up with it though, seeing as how much he spends on the Yankees.

He's trying to stay out of the way in hopes that it will work like it did in the late 90's, but it's not at all. Cashman is a moron when it comes to putting a team together. This isn't fantasy sports where you need to get a bunch of superstars to win.

Plus even the Boss has his limits. His payroll is already at about $209 million or so.

A friend and I are talking about the yanks now and have agreed the following people need to go:

Brown

Wright (maybe, not enough info yet but I don't see much from him)

Womack

Giambi

Stanton

Johnson (borderline, having some faith he'll come back)

Williams (he has maybe one year left)

The Yankees' lineup is like a giant game of musical chairs each day. I don't care HOW much your payroll is when you can't put a consistent lineup out there, you're in trouble.

O and all you Cubbie fans must be thrilled about today's game.

Brown - Yes

Wright - Yes

Womack - Undecided... they need him as a LEAD OFF HITTER and a base stealer. It's just very, very unforunate that Cano turned out to be as good as he did. Womack shouldn't be playing the outfield.

Giambi - Yes - GIVE ME TINO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stanton - Undecided

Johnson - Undecided

Bernie - Same, I love him and he's been doing outstanding lately, but he's getting old.

Obviously his hitting. The only reason I'm iffy on saying goodbye to him is his ability to hit in the clutch.

I realize it's not technically MLB news but I thought this was worth a good laugh. John Rocker has been cut by the Long Island Ducks :rofl: :laugh:

yup, and i'm not sure (100% serious, not trying to be sarcastic or anything), but i'm pretty sure i posted that before his fielding went in the ****ter lol... but yeah his hitting was outstanding lately.

torre needs to put Giambi on the DH and have Tino play first.
