• Some thoughts from the Red Sox series

    While it was understood that this was a more important series for the Red Sox than for the Yankees, it was still disappointing to see the Yankees lose two out of three at home to the Beantowners. The two losses were both frustrating as the Yankees had rallied back late only to give the games away with either bad defense or slow defense and lucky hits by that Ciriaco guy who is now a metropolitan nightmare. The overall factor here is that the Yankees have now lost seven of ten in a stretch of mediocrity but have only lost two games in the standings.

    Will never have an issue with a great player joining the team..especially one in his 20's. It won't make us dramatically better but welcome back.

    We give up zero picks or prospects for the best closer in the game, paying exactly what everyone knew he was going to receive. Don't get it twisted, this

    Re: Will Bryce Harper be a Yankee?

    Not sure why it would become a distraction. Players largely want other players to make a ton of money...Harper now has to prove his value and try to live
