42 - 43? This is the first time in this millennium that the New York Yankees have been a below .500 team, at the eve of the All-Star Break. In year's past, the Wrath of Steinbrenner surely would've reared its ugly head, by now. Cashman and Torre are lucky that the "Boss" is no longer a lucid boss. Okay, I'm ready for some Giants' football, now.

The "boss" deserves a lot of the blame for the state of this team as does Cashman and Torre to a lesser degree. The "boss" was the man who decided that Sheffield (a cancer) was better than Vladimir G. or how about the Kevin Brown, Tony Womack, Kenny Lofton, Randy Johnson and a slew of other horrible signings or trades. In my opinion Cashman is a bad GM but the "boss" was the one who kept him around, because he was such a yes man.
As for the Giants, I have feeling that they will not do so well this upcoming season. Would you say Eli is a bust if he does not perform this year?

The Yankees have to lock up Wang long term. Also, if the Yankees open up their purse and manage to get Santana and Ichiro next year, look out. Just imagine the rotation of Santana, Wang, Hughes, Pettite (If Pettite resigns).

Don't be so quick to give up on them. While it will not be easy, they can make a comeback. They have a very soft July schedule, and if they can cut the defecit to 5 games or so by August, Boston will spend the rest of theif season looking over their shoulders. We all know who plays better when the pressure is on.

. Soft schedule, how caan that be. The American League is so good, so many good teams, far superior to the National League. I mean you guys have the Rangers, devil-rays, orioles, royals, etc. These are awesome teams. Geez when are people going to wake up and see the 4-5 teams, elite teams Red Sox, Detroit,Indians, Angels only have these good records because there are so many lousy teams in this highly over-rated AL

So how come they all did so well in inter league play? You don't see the forrest through the trees KAT. Two months ago you got upset when I said Reyes was a hot dog who didn't always show up to play. You carried on about my opinion of him and now I see you're calling on Willie to sit him for a few games because of his lack of hustle. I think you just look to stir things up KAT because you change like the weather,

Jim I live in S. Florida, the weather never changes here; that point taken care of. Reyes has never had a lack of hustle situation before, which was why this was so news-worthy. I was frustrated by his recent poor clutch hitting. I look at the teams and there players, not the interleague records. Tampa Bay can be the Phillies or the Dodgers, do you think they are better than them? Who won the WS? Tell me the quality teams in the AL, tell me the fair teams and tell me the lousy teams and maybe we can have an intelligent conversation. You are right though I do like to get under you Yankees butts. It works. Jim no you have a homework assignment on the AL teams and there quality. You know its such a different game. You have ballplayers that are at the end of there career, or ballplayers who cant field a lick that DH. You have smaller parks in the AL, hence leading to more run production but the biggest difference I see is how many young arms, power arms there are in the NL as opposed to the AL.

Yet when the "power arms" move to the AL they get shelled! The inter-league record should make it clear enough for you, even if you're from the south

The biggest farce today is the Yankees talking of making the playoffs...they aren't even a 500 team. Too old, too slow and too many minor leaguers on the roster!

. Who like Josh Beckett, he was a 500 pitcher in the NL, Javier Vasquez. I can go on and on with all the mediocre pitchers from the NL who went to the AL and are stars

Check out the Yankee schedule from Aug. 10th to Aug 30th. This will spell their doom once and for all.
