    The Official "Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows" thread

    Injuries to Tex, ARod, Granderson and Hughes? Dime store catchers manning the plate? One of the older, if not, oldest teams in the game? Signing an old, declining player to replace Swisher in RF? Signing two other aging, declining, beat-up players with the words "Nick Johnson" written across their foreheads?

    Not to worry! After all, we are the Yankees, and don't you forget it! A record-breaking 122 wins during the regular season is upon us and we will, in fact, glide through the playoffs on our way to # 28! Bank on it!

    I'm so excited that I cannot control my exclamation points!

    You forgot to include a certain oral delight in your thread title.

    OK, it's a good antidote to the we're doomed thread, but really, you need a little more. How about a slogan, like, "Hope."

    Love the thread. Sparkles and rainbows ftw.

    There's a lot of reason to hope for this team. Just think back to our pitching staffs in 04-05, then take a glance at the 2013 pitching staff, and it's clear that in some ways, we're moving in the right direction.

    They only dropped to 6th in 65... but yeah, you're right, we had the pleasure of watching Johnny Keane's club sink to 10th (last) the next year. From that point, it was all uphill !!

    And, since then it's almost been smooth sailing all the way, baby!

    The 2013 Yankees laugh at the '65, '66 (10th place), '67 (9th) -'75 teams! For one, they know they cannot finish in 10th place! Or 9th! Or 6th!

    "Hope" is a good choice, but, personally, I prefer something more definitive and positive, like, "Winning!" or "Yes, we will!"

    People forget that the 1970 team won 93 games. It was well-balanced with good pitching. The 1972 team was in the pennant race down to the last week.

    You're right. Interestingly enough, it was a peak into the success the team had in the near future ('76-78). A few tweaks here and there, good trades, Reggie Jackson and Billy Martin and voilā.

    It was a little more than a few tweaks. The 1970 team was good - and a breath of fresh air for us young faithful fans - but it was almost entirely remade before it became a championship team. Munson and White were the only carryovers. Trades for Lyle, Chambliss, Piniella, Nettles (more a swindle than a trade), Randolph, Rivers, Figueroa, Dent, Tidrow and probably others I've forgotten; Catfish as a free agent, followed by Gullett (some help for a year), Reggie and then Gossage; and some skinny lefty who came up through the system and sat in the bullpen for a while, picking up tips from Lyle about throwing a slider.

    Well Phelps is sharp so far and Nova seems to be dedicated to erasing last year's failures. That's good.

    I use Munson as a benchmark. Things started to get better around the same time as Thurman's arrival. Like you have listed there was more to it than that but Munson coincided with the terrible mid-60s ending. (free agency didn't hurt things either)

    it's a pretty boring team. wake me up when one of the young guys comes up to the majors

    boring means not so attached to things so i can relax
    always reasonable

    Yes, I heard. So sad. Lets call a retired player rather than give a kid a look for a month.

    Just a thought, for a month till Grandy & Tex get back put Heathcott in CF & Mostiellier at 3b. Why must they always have to go with washed up vets. We been hearing about Heathcott for a while give him a taste lets see what hes got.
