A thread titled "Joe Torre" for example could be about anything - please specify exactly what you want to discuss in the thread you're starting such as "Will Joe Torre Ever Come Back to the Yankees?". Not everyone has a lot of time on the forum to go in and out of every single thread so...
I really don't know much about him and I didn't see todays game. I can tell by the pitching line that he did really well today, but is that real or a mirage?
Is there anything in his minor league past to indicate he has a real chance to be a good fifth starter this year?
Seeing how he is now such an important part of our season, I thought this topic might deserve its own thread. I assume I'm not the only one who doesn't know a lot about Nuno, so maybe the guys who follow the minor...
TH: Dean Anna
HM: Beltran, Vidal Nuno
Finally, time to play for real!
I guess he's a sacrificial lamb for the Yanks.
To continue Tz's awesome tribute to Jeter in the countdown thread, I've amassed over 180 pictures of Jeter and plan to post one for every day to the end of the regular season. Enjoy.
I've felt a decline in the crowd for several years now in terms of enthusiasm, notably when comparing the energy to say a Red Sox game in Fenway, or heck, even an Astros game in Minute Maid Park. This was before the new Stadium was built. Since the new Stadium was erected, it can't be denied that actual game attendance seems to be declining, but worse, the crowd energy just seems...well...dead.
I've noticed and I'm sure many of you have as well. Then came this article I was reading today on...
I know that losing Mo was a huge loss, but to me, I can't really think of a better pen than the Yankees. Maybe not one worse, but I really can't pick on pen in the east and say "yeah, they're better".
Jete still has a great arm but his range is seriously diminished. Why not put him at third base like Cal Ripken? Here come all of the haters, but is it not best for the Yanks?

An interesting piece by Joel Sherman in today's NY Post:
I hadn’t considered the fact that logically, if the use of PEDs is being reduced, the number of injuries & the time it takes to heal them will be affected.
In Sherman’s words:
“…. a sport that always tested the depth of your 25- and 40-man rosters — and even more than that — is doing so in a greater way now. The combination of staying...
No honorable mention....he owned the Cubs
Which Yankees pitchers, former or current, did you think had the best mechanics?
Bryan Hoch ✔ @BryanHoch Brian Cashman said tonight that "weather permitting, Russ Canzler will probably get the call up" to join Yankees. Decision isn't final.
Wonder how this rookie will do
TH: Beltran (HR, and filled in at 1B for the first time in his career)
HM: Nova (great start), Ichiro (nice catch), Phelps (escaped bases loaded jam)
I am an optimist about baseball. I have had hope, if not expectations or confidence, about every Yankee team since the mid-90s, even for the first two thirds of last year. This team has a lot of question marks, but we can hope we get the right answers for most of those questions.
But Jeter's current range at SS is not even a question. It is what it is, and what it is is very limited, even more so than pre-injury. Just watch the replay of his belated dive in the first inning yesterday. We...
TH: BMc-34.........McCann can man.
HM: AW-43..........killin' it with the HLD.........his 4th.
I'm sure I am forgetting some very well qualified candidates, but in light of the recent performance of Yangervis Solarte, I thought it would be fun to try and remember some of the most unexpected contributions by a NYY rookie in recent memory. The two that come to mind for me were:
The key word here is unexpected
HM: Phelps, Anna
