  1. you are dead meat at recess joey!!!
  2. SS needs to have a stronger arm than the 3B. plays deep in the hole require a strong arm. throws from 3B are much shorter and more direct on most plays.
  3. thank you for the history lesson. remind me again where Mike Piazza ever came up in this thread? or where I said O'Neill is over rated? He was a very good player, not great. If you want to retire numbers of very good players, be my guest. just start printing triple digit jerseys soon. and again, I Love the Mess fan comment. shows you can have a grown up discussion on a message board. I guess only Met fans are allowed to post in Mets threads and Yankee fans are allowed to post in Yankee threads? Grow up.
  4. wow, good one. mess fan. you have been spoiled. you were born at the perfect time. you don't remember the yankees being bad, they started winning titles again when you were 10! ask the Yankee fans who went through the Stump Merrill days if they think Torre should have his #6 retired.
  5. this line always makes me laugh. the manager gets way too much credit and way too much blame. when Mo threw the ball into CF against Arizona, was that Torre "f'ing it up"? bottom line is while he was managing they made the playoffs every year. won 4 titles in 12 years. his mistake was winning too much too soon. got people spoiled. if he won a world series every 3 years, he would have had 4 in 12 years and would still be managing the yanks. All this being said, I think baseball manager in the A.L. is a very over rated job, BUT they will retire #6 for him, like it or not.
  6. wow.... unfortunately for her, Tawana Brawley. Al needs to go away, and stay away.
  7. is this madmike??? is this the same study that said Jeter was the most over rated player in the game? nobody EVER, does the backhanded stop and jump to the left field line while throwing a seed to 1B better than Jeter.
  8. never said Posada was a better player. was never a big fan of either one, but as an outsider, I think Posada was alot more important to the Yankee teams than O'Neill. By the time he is done, he will have played 15+ years at an extremely high level for a catcher. Torre, Jeter, Mo, Bernie & Posada are guarenteed to have their numbers retired in my mind.
  9. yeah, that's it. has nothing to do with retiring WAY too many numbers of "good" players. a retired # should be something special and done for great players, like Jeter, Bernie & Rivera. I'd consider Posada way before I even think of retiring O'Neill's. Just because he was popular and a good player doesnt't mean he should have his number retired. If that was the criteria Mookie Wilson's # would have been retired, or Mickey Rivers. Save the number retiring for the greats.
  10. went on later in the day just to see what the deal was. was able to get behind home plat, upper level, row R...uh, no thanks. stage is out in CF. I may as well be watching from Laguardia!
  11. Wait a minute...you DO have to work???
  12. I got screwed too Bugg. What the hell is 507tixx.com anyway??? it took me 45 mins to get a connection to the site this morning, and when I finally get through with the crap of entering in a squiggly code word they tell me they are sold out. Billy Joel puts on one hell of a show. Have seen him 6 times over the years. Somehow, someway I'm gonna get tix to this show, just hope I don't have to bend over for the scalper...again.
  13. paul o'neill was the best player on the yankees for 9 years??? i can't stand the yankees and I would put him behind Jeter, Bernie, Rivera at least.
  14. if the yankees keep retiring #'s of "good" players, they will have to us triple digit numbers soon. my barometer is higher than most I think. You have to either be a great HOF player, or be a very, very good player and have played at least 10 years with the team for me to retire your number. That's just me. I think a retired number is an unbelievable honor that should only go to the best.
  15. http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=3244818 George exercised his right to block the trade. Probably not going to be a deal breaker. They may have to add another year on his contract or even put another player in the deal instead of George. Still think this deal gets done officially by Thursday.
  16. gotta a feeling the only things you are bringing home is a "F" in English and syphilis
  17. " hey Rod, how 'bout you give me Vince and I'll send you my unprotected lottery pick this year and Marbury to even out the money!"
  18. if only they could find a sucker to take carter, they'll be on their way to rebuilding.
  19. sounds like the Nets will get 2 first round picks as well. word is they will buy out Stackhouse's contract right away, and he will resign with the Mavs. Nets didn't want him, but had to take him in order to get inside the league trade mandate of 80% salary matchup. Why now, would the 24 Nets fans go to the games??? Kidd is gone and they are a lame duck team going to Brooklyn in a few years. Oh yeah, and prices for a "decent" seat are crazy. they will average 6,000 the rest of the year!
  20. http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=3244102 rebuilding time for the Nets now. Not getting back anything they can build around. Devin Harris is a nice player, but that's it. Stackhouse is washed up and the rest are expiring contracts. Thorn is kicking himself everyday for giving Carter that contract over the summer. They couldn't trade him for a bag of balls anymore.
  21. they got screwed big time. clocked froze on .2 secs for about 2-3 seconds. what the hell were the refs looking at when they checked the replay??? it was clear as day that the clock stopped and game should have ended before the foul. The girl was still on her way down at .3 tough way to lose for Rutgers. Imus must have been the clock operator.
  22. my bet is Joba stays in the pen the whole season. Hawkins & Farnsworth will prove how much Joba is needed in the pen.
