Johnny Damon hurt.

Recommended Posts

Mr. Durable (hey, wasnt that what you Yankee honks were calling JD Drew?) will be out "longer than expected" due to a calf injury that is "worse than I thought it was. I can barely walk" as per ESPN.

Please, oh please, can we watch the late great Bernie Williams' carcass stumble around CF for one more year!!!????!!! Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not bad...we got about 2 posts into the subject of Johnny Damon being too old, fat and tired to get it done anymore and you people veered off course.

Im OK with that. After all, nobody expects you people to be in mid-season form yet, but be advised that Spring Training is officially over. Maybe it was the off day that has thrown you people off your game???

But this thread is about Johnny Demon and his fractured labia...nothing else.

Smizz,

Manny doesn't need to get injured, he'll take himself out of the lineup at some point anyways.

Oh, and F Johnny Damon

Talk about not being in mid-season form...Donut Boy really has been struggling of late.

You're gonna get yourself banned dude. If you're gonna bash the yankees fine but at least be accountable for your own team's problems. If not then you're just throwing stones for no reason other then to bait other posters..

Since when is expressing an opinion about a baseball player IN THE BASEBALL FORUM a bannable offense? Are you freakin' kidding me?

Especially when the player in question is an overrated SCRUB@SS .270 hitter. I hesitate to even call Melky "Overrated". I dont think anyone rates him all that high except Yankee fans and Brian Cashman, who for some reason has not written his resignation letter. He eats a ton of sh*t, publicly and priavtely from the the fat old man steinbrenner. And lately he has this habit of being in love with the Yankee farm players...which in previous years, the Yankees would have traded away in exchange for established players that would help them win a World Series or 2 this millenium. Hows that working out for them??? Hehehe!!!

In summation:

MELKY CABRERA SUCKS! HE SUCKS LIKE A HOOVER! AND SO DOES ANYONE WHO THINKS I SHOULD BE BANNED FOR SAYING THAT MELKY SUCKS!!!

In the world of madmike (blind yankee homer) its perfectly fine to ban me for saying Melky Cabrera sucks but all of these other people have been saying far worse things about Melky Cabrera...and nary a word from madmike.

Now dont get me wrong, the next time I care about madmike's opinion will be the first time...I would just like to point out the fact that I was SO on top of the Melky situation. Indeed, many Yankee fans were guilty of overrating this clown just because of his uniform.

Who was that Sox relief pitcher about 3 years ago you said would be better than Mariano ? Brandon Lyon.

Good call there bud.

More spin, more misquoting, more vitriol...yawn.

It was a discussion about payroll (duh, it was a discussion about the Yankees)

More specifically, it was a discussion (with Maxman) about how much $ you should wrap up in a closer, a pitcher who pitches ONE inning every 3 days or so. Mariano had just signed a big contract with NY and I said something like "I'll take my chances with a guy who makes under a million as opposed to a guy who makes 10+ million" the logic being there will be more $$$ to invest in high OBP guys in the lineup and respectable, battle-tested setup men (arguably as important if not more important than a closer) and so on...versus getting stuck with a bloated contract for ONE reliever. Anyone who knows baseball knows that the AVERAGE lifespan of a closer is 2-3-maybe 4 years. Mariano is certainly an anomoly. It was just last year that Brad Lidge was "untradable" and on his way to becoming the next Rivera. Keith Foulke, track record a mile long and the real 2004 WS/playoff MVP, enjoyed about 5 minutes of goodwill until his fall from grace. ETC...

But it was never a discussion about Mariano-vs-Lyon, rather a comment on payroll itself. I used to be of the school of thought that since NONE of you are as smart as I am, y'all should refrain from putting words in my mouth. At this point I find it 90% amusing and delightful. You guys are so funny when you play these games!

I dont deny at the time saying that Mariano was on the downside of his career...nor do I deny that it was a retarded thing to say. Youre not "catching" me in some kind of lie here...I fully admit to saying all that you said that I said. Yes, I said 90% of GMs would prefer a low salary guy like B. Lyon instead of a high salary guy PROBABLY on the downside of his career because he had been so dominant for so long, etc...

I think you guys will admit that Mariano is an exception to the rule if you can put down the Yankee pom-poms long enough.

But my overall point was that I wouldnt overpay for a closer or anyone else except a good catcher and a great starting pitcher.

But do not try to pin on me that I said Brandon Lyon was better than Mariano Rivera. Actually, go ahead and pin it on me...WTF do I care what you say?
