The Red Sox are just so much better in every facet of the game its scary.

Phil Hughes isnt built to pitch these types of games. Dude is soft. This entire team is soft.

I'm glad the Sox held on to Lowell after all.

Lowell is insanely underrated. He's such a solid all around player.

The Sox are so much better its scary. Kevin Youkilis is the best hitter in the AL.

Tough position for Hughes to be in. The Sawx plus the rain. He did have a fabulous first start in Detroit, but at 49 pitches through 2 innings this could be a long night for the Yanks shaky pen.

Its the same for Lester.

Hughes is a vag.

This post is a trainwreck. It's MAY 4. Plus the guy has had a bad wrist for 3 weeks. Yet he "can't handle NY". Please get a clue. Please.

Ahh...the "hes a slow starter" excuse. 1-8-0 million dollars.

Teixiera has been a complete disaster so far. Time to stop sugar coating it.

The team, the Stadium have both been complete diasasters so far.

The Red Sox are so far and away a better team is sickening.

When is the last time the Yankees were really a "team" and not a bunch of individuals?

The last time they managed to get a big hit.

The Yanks havent been in this awful of a state since the late 80's early 90's.

This team is a complete disaster.

Add in the organization not letting fans back in to their mosileum of a new "stadium"...things really look bright.

Embarrassing...

Hundreds of irate fans - some who claim Yankee employees told them the game had been rained out - stormed away from Yankee Stadium before Monday night's game against the Red Sox even got underway and couldn't get back in, resulting in a an ugly scene at one of the ticket gates.

With rain falling for hours and no start time announced until shortly before 9 p.m., hordes of fans began leaving the Stadium and heading home - some who said they had been advised that the game had been called by Yankee employees who walked the concourse holding pinstriped "How may I help you?" signs.

When a 9:20 p.m. start time was eventually announced over the public address system, a crowd on the sidewalk outside Gate 6 tried to get back into the Stadium, only to have the employees working the turnstiles promptly close the doors in their faces. Panicked fans began racing up and down the sidewalk, trying to find a way back into the ballpark, while others remained at Gate 6 either pleading or demanding to be let back in.

"We talked to the security personnel, who said there was zero chance they were going to play the game," said Tom Stuart, a 27-year-old from Astoria who waited out most of the rain delay before leaving with his girlfriend. "We spent three hours drinking beer - you can't drink much because they're 10 bucks apiece - now they're going to play a game in front of 35 fans."

Becky Wright, who flew in from Oregon for Monday night's game, had bought two tickets as a birthday present for her 16-year-old son, Seth O'Neil. They left the game because "the guys holding the 'How may I help you signs?' said they weren't going to play," said Wright. They were among the hundreds of fans outside Gate 6 trying to get back into the Stadium.

Jason Zillo, a Yankee spokesman, said the team has a firm no-reentry policy. He also said the NYPD and Stadium security hadn't let any fans back into the ballpark.

"We're a part of hundreds of people, if not thousands," said Martin Watson, a 39-year-old New Yorker who spent $800 for four tickets and tried to reenter through Gate 6. "This is not fan-friendly. This is B.S. You pay money for a top-of-the-line franchise, and you get bottom-of-the-line customer service."

"I built this Stadium and they won't let me in it," a man wearing a local union jacket said before storming off.

While fans were being rebuffed outside Gate 6, scores were having their tickets rescanned outside Gate 4 and being allowed back into the Stadium, but that lasted only for a limited time.

One fan, who was wearing a No. 2 Derek Jeter jersey and a backward Yankee hat, approached a reporter to say he had been let back in, but couldn't do so because the Yankees wouldn't rescan his father's ticket. A turnstile supervisor directed the reporter and several fans to the customer service window, which was locked.

At least one fan was arrested outside the Stadium. Roseanna Franco, 25, of White Plains, was charged with assault, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after she allegedly kicked a New York City police officer after not being let back in.

Stadium security also threatened to revoke the credential of Daily News photographer Robert Sabo, who was shooting the scene outside Gate 6 - a location photographers weren't prohibited from working at on Opening Day.

"They were super-embarrassed and told me to go back to my position on the field or they'd take my credential," Sabo said.

After most of the crowd had dispersed outside Gate 6, turnstile workers opened the doors and began letting people back into the Stadium. But it was already too late for hundreds of fans.

"This is unfair what they did to the people," said one Yankee employee who witnessed the entire scene outside Gate 6. He declined to give his name for fear of losing his job, but added: "For the people who left the game, what are they going to do about their money?"

Driving my wife to the train station this morning, I let fly with a rant about how the Yankees have become a media joke. This is just more evidence. I caught the game last night and--for the first time in about 40 years--felt none of the Yankee-Boston buzz/fervor that is normally there when I watch these two go at it. I think many of us need to send the inept Yankee brass emails resigning as fans. Lately, I almost find myself going for the other team because--other than Jeter, Mariano and Posada--I hate the team we have become. Good, maybe I'll get some work done on my house this summer instead of watching these clowns on TV. God knows I can't afford to actually take my wife and son to the Stadium/mausoleum for a game.

Spot on....Hell, its only May and there's no buzz in the Stadium...what's it going to be like in August when they're hovering around the .500 mark?

There was no buzz last night. There's no buzz in the "Stadium" period.

The have treated the fans like crap and the team isnt even any good.

The stadium staff doesnt make the official announcement. If you dont hear it on the PA, it isnt true.

As I said, the people working there are dummies. They have no clue on what decisions the baseball people are making. Shame on them for opening their mouths. Shame on the fans for thinking the employees have a clue.

I was at the game on Friday night. After the game ended I walked down to the lower level to meet my other friends who were at the game to try and take some pictures. Kepp in mind the game was over...

So I walk down...see my friends getting a few pics in, asd I try and meet them two security guards jump in front of my and ask for my ticket stub. Like I said, the game had ended already. I politely told the guy that those were my friends and I just wanted to take a picture with them, which was apparently obviously asking WAYYY TOO MUCH. They threatned me saying they were going to call their supervisor if I didnt cooperate and leave and ban me from the Stadium. Just absolutely unreal. I seriously looked at the two guys and said "you gotta be freaking kidding me."

Please tell me you are exaggerating here. Ban you from the stadium? Now you know the corporate mindset is firmly in place. That's what happens when you sell out your home town fans for tourists and luxury boxes. Okay, I'm talking a million years ago, but we would routinely tip the ushers a few bucks to get into great box seats after having paid for G.A.

Who knows, permanent ban...kick me out that night(which really makes no difference, considering the game was over). Just the fact I wasnt allowed to walk down a few rows to meet my friends irked me like no ones business.

I guess the Old Stadium eventually became like that too. The Yankees have to be the most non fan friendly organization in sports.

The New York Yankees organization is a complete embarrassment right now. From the ownership, to the awful new Stadium right to the actual product on the field.

It's a sickening feeling because my hands are tieD. I cant just stop rooting for them...even with them representing everything that is wrong in sports.

If they were winning, it might be easier...but this team hasnt won a playoff series in 5 years. Multiply by a Moseleum that is half empty every night...you have one ticked off fanbase.

You're free to root for someone else. No one is forcing you.

You're happy with the way the organization is being run? I could understand if they were winning, but theyre not. The team sucks...

Randy Levine is the biggest scumbag in sports in my eyes. Him and Dolan need to jump off a cliff. Both are ruining the two most important franchises in NY.

Randy Levine doesn't handle any aspect of the baseball operations. He deals with the Yankees money.

Well, no ****. And that's all the Yankees care about now, OUR money. The product on the field is an after thought. The first Yankees Red Sox game in the new glitzy Stadium looked like a Jets preseason game in the 4th quarter attendnance wise.

They saw the old Stadium as a roadblock into making more money...when in reality it was home.

Yeah, so the Yankees brought in Sabathia, Teixeira, and Burnett.. because the product on the field was an after thought. Get a clue.

The product on the field stinks. This team is gutless, like its front office.

This season is a trainwreck.

We are not having a great start right now but I wouldn't say this season is a train wreck just yet.

Im factoring the new stadium and the performace of our overpiced aquistions. Add in the fact we've been completely blown off the field several times.

I think we'll get it together when it warms up, but this start hasnt been ideal. They're hard to watch. On a brighter note, Teixeira looks like he's warming up FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!

It aint warm in October....

When did this exucse even become relevant? We'll play better when it gets warm out? I wish I could tell my boss that during the winter.

It has nothing to do with weather, Teixeira has good post season numbers.

Bernie Williams was a really slow starter, yet he obviously hit in October.

The Yankees have used the cold as an excuse for some time now. Damon's said it, Randy Johnson used to say it....its been used ever since they forgot how to win in the postseason, and now apparently the regular season.

So why don't they count? it's like me saying..

Who has the Red Sox developed besides Youk, Papelbon, Pedroia, Lester, Ellsbury, ect...

That's a pretty solid core right there. One reigning MVP and most likely one coming from Youk this season.

Believe me I'm just as pissed off as you but I'm not praying for some Jets football just yet. Who knew the new digs we be a band box early on?But I think this team is one hot streak away from turning this thing around.But we have to beat Boston if they play tonight.

I know what youre saying,but I waited for that hot streak for 162 games last season, and it never came.

I dont see it being any different this season. This team just simply isnt good enought to put together 8-10 game winning streaks. If its any consolation...they arent bad enough to lose that many games in a row either.

Man, reading through this thread, there certainly are a lot of Yankees fans that I really wish would go back into the hiding they were in prior to 1996.

I mean, if you're going to jump on the bandwagon when things are going great, you need to stay on when the road gets a little rocky too.

Not the mention that the gloom and doom here is way over the top. This is still a very, very good team that can do a lot of damage this year.

For the record, by personal and all other accounts, people have been treated great by the Stadium staff. More than accomodating. Yeah, maybe there's a couple of overaggressive security douches out there you may have come across. Or maybe you're just acting like a drunk douche yourself and getting the treatment you deserve. Doesn't mean there isn't a whole lot of out here LOVING the New Yankee Stadium experience.

If you hate this gorgeous stadium, the team ownership (that has provided you 6 championships and endless other accomplishments), the "feel" :rolleyes: of the team, the manager, the uniforms, and every other little nitpicky nonsense, then take a walk and go root for someone else.

You'd be doing the rest of us a real service.

Who are you?

If you hate this "gorgeous" new Stadium, you're not a real fan.

If security ws giving you a problem for trying to take a picture- you were probably drunk.

Randy Levine, is that you?

Gillette Stadium was "gorgeous" when it opened in 2002. That doesn't discount the fact the there was a severe lack of mens bathrooms and getting in to the Stadium was a mess.

When I complained about it my fellows Pats fans agreed that it was terrible. The Patriots listened and all was taken care of in the next couple of seasons.

Homers are the best. No matter what the ownership/team does all is good :rolleyes:

It doesn't make you less of a fan if you complain about things that negatively impact your game day experience.

I just dont like the new Stadium and the direction the organization is headed....sue me.

I liked the feel of the old Stadium....being cramped, the noise, the energy. It just isnt there anymore.

There is a huge, HUGE difference between constructive criticism and being a spoiled, whiny bitch.

I'm all for the constructive criticism.

Spoiled? I liked the dark damp stadium better than this Epcot Center thing we have now.

But, Im acting spoiled...right.

You, for the most part, are on the same page as I am.

There are a few other excessively annoyingly negative party poopers who clearly haven't got the first clue what they're talking about. It's evident who has lived through the Wayne Tolleson-Alvaro Espinoza-Chuck Cary years and who hasn't.

You obviously werent here for the early years of Jets Nation. I lived through that.

Dont start throwing around this Im a real fan and youre not nonsense. Its pathetic.

Especially since everyone here is a Jets fan. Were not exactly spoiled by them.

My only point is in this case that we don't know the circumstances of M39's story. How many times have you seen a fan acting up, being escorted out, acting completely outraged and righteous, and you know he went home and blamed the mean security guard for whatever happened.

I'm not saying that's what happened here. But maybe something similar did. Or didn't. That's the point. Each instance is exactly that. An isolated incident from the perspective of one person.

Just because M39 has one bad experience, doesn't mean the whole place needs and overhaul and retraining of the staff and security. Not for nothing, but try being a sports stadium security guard anywhere in this country. Deal with the drunk idiots all over and see how you feel about it.

To make a total decision on the new place based on one incident is silly. Just as silly as judging Teixeira as a failure based on four weeks of work, 3 of which he spent playing injured.

Overall, I've had nothing but good experiences so far. Some of the best I've ever had at any stadium. Many others agree. I love the new Stadium.

The game was over and I simply tried to meet some friends for pictures. Do you work for the Yankees or something?

The energy of the new Stadium is poor. Maybe it will grow in time, but to me, the Yankees have completely ruined their home field advantage. The Old Stadium intimidated people, the Disney World atmpsphere doesnt.

Your team is poorly managed.

They have an economic advantage no one can touch. It is the only reason you are competitive.

They should not be looking at their 9th straight season without a title. It is not like they are getting better. They are getting progressively worse every year.

It hurts when Sox fans are right.

This team is awful.

Does it even matter anymore, Max? This team is a joke and they always will be until this clown manager is gone. Pena did a better job in that loss yesterday, then Retardi has done all season.

The clutch hitting has been a problem way before Girardi

Rule #1: Never side with a journalist who makes it clear that he has a problem with what he's reporting about.

Im siding with the journalist who has went through the same type of experience.

Fan police...watch out.
