The Yankees don't need luck.


Bloody hell, tried to get two quotes in so I typed that one in. It's close enough if not right. Anyway, no, they don't need it, which is why I'mnot wishing them any.




Aaron and Tony need to lay off the rock.


In Realli's defense, he's not giving a opinion just stating that "others" had said that while asking the idiots a question. I thought it odd, myself, but I understand the financials of the game to know the Reds have no money nor do they spend it. I expect a losing team. Although the kid looks good but so did Kerry Wood.

I think Cincy might have a little somethin' somethin' goin' on this year. Not enough to match the Cardinals, but one never does know.

Oh, one more thing...


Yankee's lost...Yankee's lost...



Neener, neener...:p. May it be an sign of things to come...

Gallaragga was robbed. That was as bad a call as I have ever seen. Three perfect games in the span of four weeks or so would have been wild but the ump got the call wrong and took history away from us all. I was watching it live, hour or so ago, and I'm still in shock at that call.

Almost makes a case for instant replay. If only it was there for this is might have been rectified at the time.

So we are a third of the way in and the Yankees are kicking butt while the Mariner's are playing like they just exited one. Don't worry though, football season is right around the corner, maybe the Seahawks can take some of the sting out.

The operative word there, oh Yankee fan, is one third... Still lots and lots of ball to be played yet... ...and they are starting to play a little better, though you wouldn't know it over the past few days...

Handle Minnesota easily, get swept by California... Go figure that one...

Yankee's are still trailing...who was it again...thinking...thinking...oh, yeah, Tampa Bay... Though I thinkin' y'all might want to watch out for Toronto...they are playing some pretty good ball right now. Four team race in the east? Who saw that one coming?

...and the less said about the Seahawks the better... At least for now.

Duly noted oh wise and wonderous shore-bird. Perhaps we will revisit this again, say the All-Star break? Maybe your guys can scratch their way over .500.....

Here's hoping. At the moment? .500 ball would be an accomplishment to be proud of...

If you tie me down and tickle my toes enough, I'd be forced to admit that the Yankees (much as it pains me to admit it...) are one of the top three teams in baseball.

In a total aside... Stephan Strausberg is a stud. It's been a long time since I've seen such a can't miss youngster like this one... Awesome is an overused word in sports these days, but it fits what happened last night.

All star break is here. Or almost...

Still not at .500, but playing better. Surely hoping, praying even, that the Mariner brass keeps Cliff Lee. Make him say no to a contract offer in the off season. A trade isn't going to net anything of any immediate help. Offer 5 years at 20 to 25 per, and see what happens... Or they get 2 draft picks as compensation.

Maybe there's still hope.

I was sure sorry to see Jr. go in that fashion...sitting at the end of the bench unused...

Hall of Fame next stop.

At least Jr. didn't go out like Mays, fumbling after the ball in the outfield in his last season.

Such high hopes for Seattle before the season started. Baseball is a funny game(just ask Armando Gallarraga) and things that look good on paper don't translate to the field.

Heck, I'm sitting here in shock. Nearing the break and my Reds are in first place.

That's NOT supposed to be happening.

Bizarro world? Twilight Zone? Maybe, I dunno. There still is much to be played.

It is officially Football season in Seattle.

Sorta like what the Yankees will do.

Normally I'd be responding with a typical "I hate the Yankees" post...

But not today. I was very sorry to hear of the passing of George Steinbrenner last night... My condolences to his family, and to the Yankee fans out there. The New York sports scene just won't seem the same without "the Boss"...

I won't mind this year, if the Yankees win one for him. Seems only right.

RIP, George. I'll miss you.

Very classy post, thank you Seagull.

As a long time season ticket holder I will miss him as the force behind the Yankees which helped restore them to their place atop the Baseball world. He will be missed by all of us.

On the non-Baseball front the past 4 months have been sad. First the Stadium gets knocked down (but not in time to finish the job before everyone sees the what's left prior to opening day), then Bob Sheppard passes and finally the Boss. Three icons gone in quick succession.

Not a problem. I've no trouble separating games from real life...

The same can not be said for others... Some of the stuff I'm reading on various fan forums elsewhere are enough to make me want to puke...

I've been excoriated at the Seattle Times forum for daring to contradict some rather sordid sentiments regarding Steinbrenner... Make no mistake, I had issues with some of the stuff he did...his treatment of Dave Winfield, as an example. But there really is no excuse for some of the stuff being said...

Barring a miraculous comeback by the Mariners? Go, Yankees...

The Mariners did the right thing by trading Lee. They stood absolutely 0 chance of resigning him. They got a nice player for him too. Justin Smoak has been very streaky this year and his avg. still leaves a lot to be desired...But in a few years (maybe even as soon as next year) he should develop into a 30+HR per year player. He's a big time prospect and I like what I've seen from him.

How are your M's going to do this year my friend?

Opening day at the Stadium looked more like Old Timers Day for me. I took my friend and his daughter who are Red Sox fans and had to listen to them gloat most of the game.

Meh...

They're young, and reasonably talented... But... Don't think it's going to happen this year...

Your Yank's are old this year...
