I really hate to admit to this but bostondirtdogs.com is a really good website with a lot of information on it and updated daily and well. Is there a Yankee website out there that contains all the information such as this dirtdogs and done just as well? I have been searching and searching but can't seem to find a 1 stop yankee site. I come to this site for forums, search cbssportsline for yankee rumors and actually read dirtdogs for yankee info as well. Uggghhh

Yep...I'm in your boat. I actually like BDD for their information.... and they're not "stupid" fans. They love the Red Sox, as much as I love the Yankees.... and reading what they have to say is just as good as talking and BS-ing with my RS friends.

I would loooove a yankees-like site though.

As much as I hate BDD (they jerk off to Schilling, very hypocritical), I was thinking it would be cool too. When nyynews.com (a terrible, terrible site) was for sale, I was thinking someone should have bought it and turn it into a similar site.

Are we talking about the same Boston Dirt Dogs that was found to have fabricated stories pretty much out of thin air?

And if you're going anywhere other than this forum for Yankee news & rumors, what is it, exactly, that you're looking for?

BDD is the National Enquirer of baseball.

wow. I just emerged from four days inside a boxing ring with no news of the outside world and I see this thread...

With apologies to the author of this thread, coming to NYYFANS and asking where to find Yankee news is like going to Florence, Italy and asking if there are any good restaurants because you can't find any. or something like that.

Hey Jim - sorry, I didnt mean to insult this great website...which I love.
I think the difference is, I like nyyfans as a forum, a site to discuss breaking news, relate to similar yankee fans, etc. Yes, yankee news is broken pretty early here sometimes, but this is never the first place it's broken - if it is, no one believes the poster unless he has corroborating links anyway, and rightfully so.

Couldn't agree with you more about how much I like BDD. At a BDD type site, you can hop in quick and see what's going on. It's clever and funny. That and you don't have to deal with the typical nonsense that comes along with a forum (as recently displayed in the how forumers change a lightbulb post). All there is is news and recaps. I think it's terrific. That being said, http://www.nomaas.org/ is sortof a BDD light.

It's posted on the PATH train.

What's the link to the blog?

Exactly. Nothing against this site at all that is not why I started this forum. Heck, I have this website bookmarked, it's bookmarked right to the forums, but it's bookmarked because when I see something that breaks on ESPN or MLB I come here to see what Yankee fans are saying about it in the forums. Nothing against the home page, it just isn't what BDD is. Basically BDD is a fun Blog site with links to everything and I hate to compare to BDD, I know people will reply and say "then go to that site instead", I started this thread to find out if there were any Yankee site similar to that one is all. Sorry to anyone I might have offended.

I completely agree. This site is my home page, and I'm here more than 12 hours of the day, but if you want another kind of Yankee site, one that's more fun [BDD is fun, but a little tabloidish], then NoMaas is your best bet.

I like BaseballToaster. Not exactly what you were looking for but good none the less. It covers other teams and not just the Yankees but if you go to Bronx Banter there is good coverage, discussion and a more links to various blogs, interviews, etc. than you would ever want. But nothing will beat the site you're at now.

I agree, that website is garbage. They try to incorporate the comic effects of BDD, but they s**k. However, Torre haters would have a good time at nomaas.

Well he has 75 posts in 2 1/2 years so he's probably not doing forum surfing and he's probably one of the 326 folks who hit my column but then maybe we could get a humorist to make light of the seasons ups and downs.

This website is mostly a forum. Yes, there are some articles, but it's mostly a forum, and if there's another side of it besides those two, then I am unaware.

The kid wanted a website similar to BDD, and he gets killed for it.

Hey Jim - I apologized if I offended you in my first post. I guess you didn't see my post, or are just ignoring me. I really hope you know how much I enjoy this site, but you have to admit that there's things this site CAN'T do, just because of its format. Like I said, this site can't break yankee news. Naturally, if someone breaks yankee news, there needs to be a link corroborating it. Thus, there needs to be an original source. Anyway...I'm done discussing this, because like I said, I love this site for what it is.

Jim F.
04-16-06, 07:56 PM
this site can't break yankee news.Well, we could make it up, then it would be similar to BDD.

If you're looking for breaking news, it is published by newspapers and occassionally TV. And there is typically a thread 4 pages long on it before it's actually printed in the newspaper. You could also get an RSS reader that would aggregate Yankees news from the AP, TSN, Reuters, etc., but we do that for you already here too.

I come here for all breaking news regarding Booby Meacham.

04-17-06, 11:38 AM
I've always found that this site is the best place for Yankees news. Not only is just about anything that has any effect on the team (and some things that don't ;)) posted as soon as one of the thousands of people who look through the news for Yankees news find it, but there's more in depth "coverage" of any story here than just about anywhere, in my view. You might find a sentence or two in an ESPN "Around the Majors" article mentioning that the Yanks signed Carlos Pena, but here you have a six page thread on it with a wide variety of opinions and information. I think that the news here is better than you can find on any site that doesn't concentrate as much on its forum. I think that this is the best Yankee website and Yankee forum, and, as far as I can tell, Yankees news source, on the net.

First of all, it's Bobby Meacham. Booby Meacham was a porn actress back in the 70s.
And that was one retrospective piece during Spring Training. Get over it. This is the place for breaking news.

I enjoyed that piece, I'm just saying that this is the place for all Meacham related news, thats something to be proud of, considering the endlesss amounts of Meacham News aggregators available on the web. Now if I wanted some Hensley Meulens updates, I might look elsewhere.

For the Forums, not for the breaking news. Sort of the whole point of this thread, wouldn't you say.As I've mentioned already in this thread, there are dozens of ways to stay on top of breaking news in regard to the Yankees. If someone doesn't know about them, then I guess it shouldn't surprise me that they're looking for a BDD-style site about the Yankees; or, even worse, reading BDD for their Yankees news.

If people want to read about it somewhere else before discussing it here, there's nothing wrong with that. But, to me, the point of this thread is that this forum is an excellent place to get breaking Yankees' news. People post news pretty much as it breaks here; they do all the work for you. Short of that, go visit Google News and search for Yankees, and read all about it. Then come here and discuss it in a thread that has those links in it anyway. If you'd rather take extra unneccessary steps to arrive at the same result, that's your call. You work for the government, so it actually doesn't surprise me that this is the case ;).
