Yankee Fans Relax, You Still Have a Good Team

Yes, last night was a disappointing moment for New York Yankee fans. With the acquisition of Giancarlo Stanton, Yankee fans had dreams of Stanton and Aaron Judge hitting 100 homers combined in a season. 

But unlike the great Yankee teams led by Derek Jeter, the 2018 Yanks lacked strong pitching and a lineup of hitters that worked counts and frustrated pitchers. Still, the Yankees are still in good position to compete for an number of years. They have a number of young talented players ready to step up, while older players like C.C. Sabathia and Brett Gardner have probably seen their last days in pinstripes.

Players like Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar (soon to be AL Rookie of the Year) have already produced at the major league level, with Chance Adams (P), Domingo Acevedo (P), and Clint Frazier (hopefully can get past concussion issues) seemingly ready to contribute at the next level.

24-hours have not even passed, and fans are already pining for Joe Girardi, talking about signing Manny Machado and Bryce Harper… STOP IT!!!!

#Yankees fans overreacting this morning 😂😂

A post shared by SNY (@snytv) on

So Yankee fans, as my guy N.O.R.E. would say, “You Gotta RELAX!”

Of course, what do I know… I’m just a Mets fan that hates the Yankees 



As always….

If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!



F-A-Natic Fridays – Are the Yankees SOFT???

As much I hate the Yankees I never thought I would ever think of the Yankees being SOFT, but after watching Boston come into Yankee stadium and sweep the series I think it’s time to starting questioning the mental makeup of this Yankee team.

Not only did Boston sweep the series but they also physically inflected some pain on the Yankees.  Boston pitching managed to hit 4 Yankees, including knocking Mark Teixeira from the game after getting plunked on the knee.

So how did the Yankees respond?

Well……

As I already mentioned the Yankees got swept at HOME by their hated rivals; so obviously Tex being hit didn’t ignite anything in them. Then on top of that David Ortiz went off on them AGAIN and blasted a couple of homeruns.  One of the homeruns Big Papi apparently offended Yankee manager Joe Girardi with the flip of the bat; so I guess this would be the time when the Yankees would definitely retaliate.  Girardi is an old school type of guy, so you have to believe something would happen, right???

Well……

So the Yankees did FINALLY respond as C.C. Sabathia hit Ortiz in the leg with a 97 mph fastball. Of course that only happened AFTER Josh Beckett hit Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez.

WTH!!!!

So the Yankees finally hit David Ortiz after 161 career games and 34 career homeruns against them; AND after the Red Soxs hit 3 of their star players.  I guess that seems like a fair trade-off, LOL!!!

Yeah, the Yankees are soft as baby shit!!!

There is no way the Yankee teams that had Paul O’Neil and Roger Clemens would have ever let that go down.  Without a doubt there would have been some kind of bench clearing brawl…

Where is Don Zimmer?  His old ass has more fight than these NY Yankees!!

No wonder the Yankees were swept at home, they have no heart.  I will even say that my NY Mets have more heart than these pretty boy Yankees; The Mets have 2 superstars down and they show more fight.

After Boston’s slow start the Yankees had the chance to bury their hated rivals; instead they let them stay in the race and now Boston is in 1st place.  Even though it is still early in the season (really not), I am not sure the Yankees have what it takes to challenge the Red Sox.  Of course the Yankees have proven me and others a lot smarter than me wrong before….

The only difference is those Yankees teams of past seasons had HEART!!

Arrogance of Yankee fans…

So if you heard that loud annoying noise last night around midnight (eastern), it was Yankee fans crying about the news that Cliff Lee was going to sign with Philadelphia Phillies.  Don’t confuse the Yankee fans crying with the sobbing of Houston Texans as once again they lost a game in heartbreaking fashion, but that story is for another day; LOL!

Back to Yankee fans, the typical NY Yankee fan is so arrogant that they feel EVERY free agent should sign with them and that going anywhere else is like turning down the advances of Selita Ebanks.  After the disbelief of the idea that the #1 free agent on the market Cliff Lee would tell the Yankees no, fans of the Bronx Bombers began to go after the mental makeup Lee and his wife.  Seriously, was it not enough that classless Yankee fans rudely heckled Lee’s wife during the ALCS last year at Yankee Stadium?

In my opinion any attack on Lee’s mental makeup is just silly, and any comparison to LeBron not wanting to come to the Knicks is off as well.  In the case of LeBron you can say LeBron was wanting to avoid being the man as basketball is more of an individual sport than baseball.  Bron would have had the focus of the NY media on him every day as he would be playing every game.  Unlike LeBron, Lee would only pitch every 5 days while sharing the marquee with other Yankee players like Jeter, Robinson Cano, Alex Rodriguez and Mariano Rivera.  Keep in mind that for the past 2 seasons Lee has been a hired gun that has been thrown into the fire of stretch runs for teams making a push for the playoffs.  He also has been the #1 pitcher leading teams in the playoffs…

Postseason Pitching Statistics
SEASON G GS CG SHO IP H R ER HR BB SO W L SV HLD BLSV WHIP ERA
2009 5 5 2 0 40.1 27 10 7 0 6 33 4 0 0 0 0.82 1.56

Total 10 10 3 0 76.0 54 22 18 2 8 80 7 2 0 0 0.82 2.13

Sorry Yankee fans but these are not the numbers of some one scared to pitch on the big stage, LOL!  As a matter of fact Lee has done it in Yankee Stadium as an opposing pitcher, which is worse than playing for the home team.  Yankee fans will just have to get over it and realize Lee just likes Philly better; yes there are people out there not obsessed with NYC and being part of that scene.  It’s even coming out that Lee never wanted to leave Philly last season when he was traded.  If you want to question Lee’s intelligence, well that is a different story… LOL, who wants to live in PHILLY!  At the end of the day Yankee fans should applaud Lee for not just being about the money and coming to NY to cash checks.  It will truly be OK Yankee fans, you still have C.C. Sabathia…

Now as a Mets fan, I am the one that should be mad!!!!

WTF, now my squad which has no money to spend not only has to deal with Roy “Doc” Halladay but now in a 3 game series we could be facing Halladay, Lee, and Hamels/Oswalt!! Screw a Yankees fan, I am the one who should be crying, HAHA!!!

As always….

If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!!
