Mark Teixiera: TRAINWRECK 2009

What a bum. Dude cant handle NY.

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.

You mean the pitcher who entered the game with a 5.40 earned run average?

I think he means compare a 25 year pitcher with 4 years of major league experience to a 22 year old with 20 career starts. Same thing really :rolleyes:

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.

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Boston is one game ahead of the Yankees right now. You're completely overreacting on MAY 4.

You can not make an informed decision on Teixeira's Yankee career 4 weeks into it. It's completely moronic.

Lester has given up the exact number of earned runs as Hughes tonight. Man, does he suck.

That is not difficult to do, when you have more seats.

FACT-The Mets are actually selling a greater percentage of their total seats than the Yankees.

Opinion-Who cares, except for you who seems to have to have a knee jerk reaction to any Yankee opinion that does not agree with your own.

This is downright retarded. Percentage? Really? You think that is a legitimate comparison?

Maybe if the Mets were at 100%, meaning there were fans that WANTED to attend Mets games but physically CAN'T due to availablility, then you could make a case.

But the fact that there are empty seats means that the TOTAL NUMBER is all that matters. And the Yankees sell more tickets than the Mets. Bottom line.

End of story and 4th grade math lesson.

It will be a cold day in hell if we see a new Fenway in our lifetimes. I don't think Tyler realizes that getting public money to build sports stadiums just doesn't happen in Massachusetts.

TD BankNorth Garden: Privately funded by Delaware North (Jeremy Jacobs & the Bruins).

Gillette Staduim: Privately funded by Robert Kraft.

All the Commonwealth kicked in was money for infrastructure improvements for Gillette. I don't think they spent a dime for the new Garden.

LOL at the concept of giving kudos to Massachusetts politics.

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.

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.

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

I'm all for the constructive criticism.

I'm not sure who you're referring to but here's my view on the subject.

You have fans who will eat the sh*t of their team and like

You have fans who will eat the sh*t but realize it's sh*t

You have fans who could be offered a rib eye steak but will chose to eat sh*t to continually piss and moan about something.

I know there are things wrong with this team. I know so far this year, the Red Sox own us. I know that we have a ton of injuries and we are an expensive team where hatred for the wealthy is at an all time high and the Yankees are a symbol of decadence.

But their my team, and I think there's a **** ton of potential on this roster. I get annoyed, I'm human, but I cheer for the Yankees and when their on the field I want them to win.

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.

Well said. Some posters think criticizing the stadium = criticizing the team. That isn't the case at all.

I haven't heard many complaints about Citi Field. Have you heard anything?

For what it's worth I think the Yankees need to train their support staff and security people to shut up if they don't know what is going on.

What happened to Matt39 after a game was ridiculous.

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.

Shea was one of those awful multi-purpose crap Stadiums built in the '60's like Three Rivers, Riverfront, etc. I went to a Pats/Steelers game in 1994 and couldn't see from the 10 yard line to the endzone where I sat.

Are the sight lines that bad at Citi? The lack of Mets items needs to be taken up with ownership.

Here are the negatives I've read about the new Yankee Stadium:

- Ridiculous prices to sit down low between 1st and 3rd.

- Uninformed & overly aggressive security/staff.

- HR's are flying out of the place.

I've been to Citifield as well, and I'd have to say that I think the sightline thing is blown way out of proportion. Citifield is sweet. It reminded me a bit of Philly's new stadium, but I think in some ways it fell just short of that one.

But in comparison to Shea, it is a one million times improvement. Mets fans should be psyched.

This thread blew up since last night.

The Yankees lately are like the whole swine flu nonsense. Everything is blown completely way out of proportion by a few alarmists, and ultimately, it's not really that big of a deal.

It's okay to pump your fist and go crazy one the mound... if you're winning.

Is it ok to go wild when one of your hitters breaks up a no-hitter in the 9th when your team is losing 8-0?

I think there is a fine line there.

If you get out of a big inning or pressure packed situation, then it is ok even if you are losing.

If you are like those ass clowns that strike a pose after getting a first down late in the 4th when you are down 35-10. That is flat out stupid.

All of this crap is not black and white....it is as the rest of life...gray.

Except in Boston, where everything is white.

The Governor of Massachusetts says hi.

Boston is the least diverse city in America. And most racist. And you're really going to dispute that with a recent action by Massachusetts voters? The ones who continually elect Ted Kennedy, Barney Frank, etc. etc.? Funny stuff. Thanks.

Me thinks Guido has an issue with the City of Boston.

I really like the city of Boston. Except for the 90% of the dopes that live there.

With a username like Guido Monzino I'm sure he spends a lot of his time at Seaside Heights in the summer. We all know that is a diverse crowd! ;)

You've met everybody who lives there?

I've observed for many years. Been conducting my own sociology experiment. It actual has been a fascinating experience watching the behavior of those people. Kind of mind-boggling, you'd almost think it was a completely isolated island natio of its own.

well you got to remember most people consider anyone from Massachusetts to be from Boston.. and most people Guido deals with on a message board arent from the city of Boston.

Actually, Bostonians, although they appear to share many of the same traits and clearly share common ancestors as others from Mass, seem to have evolved an extra protective layer of anger, agressiveness, and self-defense. I'm developing a theory that delves into the many factors that have contributed to the behavior.

What baffles me about the culture though still is how the language up there formed. It appears to be some kind of degraded form of English in which they have removed the letter "R".

And how many people you speak to on this message board are actually from Boston?

What does that even mean? It has little bearing on my research. The many weeks and months I have spent in the city of Boston itself do, however.

Kind of like Jane Goodal living with the gorillas.

The City of Boston has around 600,000 residents and believe it or not they aren't all white!

Most of us Mass residents live outside the City. I live exactly 10 miles north of Boston and can be downtown in 15 minutes.

BTW: A New Yorker making fun of a Massachusetts accent is ironic to say the least.

There is a difference between a NY "accent" and the Massachusetts dialect that has devolved out of our primary language here is this country.

You said many weeks and months. How long were you up here? Where did you stay?

Since you have thrown Boston under the bus I would like to know how you formed your opinion.

There's that defensiveness I spoke of.

Let's see. I've spent extensive time and have stayed/lived/worked in: Framingham, Worcester, Waltham, Cambridge, Somerville, Copley Square, Fenway, South Boston, Quincy, Fall River, Pembroke, Plymouth, most of the Cape, to name a few. And that's just in the eastern half of the commonwealth. You want addresses and phone numbers to follow up with?

Lets break this down:

Apart from the Cape and Back Bay you have been to the most diverse places in Massachusetts. Or does diverse only equal black in your narrow mind?

So by your admission, there are no "black" people in any of those places?

By the way, when did I ever say anything about African Americans?
