    2012 General Yankee Comments Thread

    I didn't see one of these, so I thought I'd start one.

    So far, not terribly good. A minor blip, or a sign of things to come? Discuss.

    A blip. This team isn't going to completely fall apart in one off season. Seen some great ABs from Swish and A-Rod. Tex has drawn a good handful of walks (though a few HITS would be nice).

    After the Salami, CC really did okay. Kuroda did alright, too. I'm just seeing this as the season just beginning of the season. Tex has never been good out of the gate. CC seems to be slow. Once the weather warms up, both of these guys really light up. I'm not expecting ANYTHING like last year from Granderson. I've been loving Grittner's ABs. I'm positive. I'm not going to be a negative nancy like others. The season is too long, I wouldn't make it alive if I reacted like some.

    I miss pre-2000 when New York never even noticed baseball until the Knicks were done. As much as WFAN tries to , you cannot treat baseball like the NFL. Its 162 games

    Woo - are you suggesting that starting the season 0 - 3 is not a reason to panic?

    Reality is not an acceptable perspective on this board.

    The way to win the division is to consistently win series. Getting swept in the first series of the season bothers me, I have to admit. The poor defensive performance is what bothers me most of all. The offense will be fine.

    It is not good to be swept by the Rays, that's for sure! The kids are cheap, not like the "OLD BOSS"! They gotta spend some loot and get some star pitching!

    ??? I do not follow.

    EDIT (for clarification): You mean spending loot and getting some star pitching other than the two star pitchers they spent some loot on and got rocked in the first two games?

    In 1998, the Yankees started off 0-3, losing by a combined score of 21-6. 0-3 starts pretty much mean the season is over.

    (Oh, also, the Orioles, Mets, and Mariners are in first place)

    I'd like to see the Yankees get very, very healthy in this next series against Baltimore.

    Gain at least one game on Tampa, maybe even two, over the next three days and things will feel a bit better.

    3 games is 1 percent of the season.
    Still 99 percent to go.
    I'll predict that over that remaining 99%, the Yankees will be better than Tampa.

    Effy, this is a very good statistical point.

    How many times have the Yankees been at .500 or below by the end of May and made the playoffs by years end?

    I'm not sure what a manager telling a reporter will have any affect on what the team does on the field. I don't think it's a matter of the players not trying, if anything they are probably pressing too hard.

    I would say that's an excellent guess.
