First of all, I would like to welcome anyone who is reading my musings. I will do my very best to stick to facts in here. I will have some of my own insights, and opinions, but I will make sure to be honest and forthright. So please, enjoy yourself, don't take it too seriously, it's kinda supposed to be fun. If I offend anyone, I will take the time to apologize now. If you are a Braves or Patriots fan, I apologize for you. Not to you, you apparently don't know any better.

Today's Topic:  New York Yankees Baseball

Well, its late July, the Yankees are 3 1/2 games behind the Rays and 3 games behind the Red Sox.  They have a crucial series this weekend in Fenway Park. Jorge Posada and Hideki Matsui are on the DL. Chien Ming Wang, their ace, has been on the DL for a month and a half. What is the talk surrounding this team? A-Rod and Madonna. You have got to be kidding! Does it really matter? How many women was Mickey Mantle with, the guy is a GOD in New York. People get over it. This team has other issues that need to be addressed. I read here on sportsline that they are considering Barry Bonds. Personally I think its a great idea. It gives them another big bat, a player that can get on base, and someone to take the brunt of the media away from A-Rod. Maybe a signing like this would give Alex just the break he needs come playoff time that he wouldn't hear quite as much about his recent playoff issues.

Are they even looking at another catcher if Jorge can't continue or are they going to stick with Molina. You talk about an inning killer. If they have anyone on base they almost have to start the runner or else its an easy double play. Even if he runs hard to first base it looks like he's going backwards.

What about Mark Texeira? Any chance he could be the first basemen next year. Pretty sure it's not going to be Giambi. Like I said, pretty sure. i was a little bit surprised they brought Posada back this year and giving him a 4 year deal is starting to look like a bad idea. Didn't Pavano get a 4 year deal. Uhoh!! Did I go there.

Well have a great day everyone. If there are any Yankee fans in Boston tomorrow night, be careful! Those Sox fans are idiots too, I should have mentioned them with the Braves and Patriots(Kinda strange, aren't these all Boston teams)

Welcome to The Daily Dose

Actually gastropod i have been to several games in "The Stadium", and while I agree their are some nuts there, they are usually located out in the bleachers. I sat out there once way back when Danny Tartabull was a member of the KC Royals, and there were 3 people in the bleachers wearing Royals gear. At the beginning of the game I feared for the lives of those 3 Royals fans. However, after being verbally assaulted for the better part of 7 innings, it turned out thats all it was. An enormous amount of verbal abuse. The Royals won that game by the way.

Welcome to The Daily Dose

Sox fans are idiots? 

O.k., some are.  But have you ever sat in Yankee stadium?  The nuts are everywhere.  Try a Cubs game.
