they just cannot handle adversity. when the going gets tough, they disappear, both at the plate, and on the mound. and sometimes in the field. but you are what your record shows you to be. and right now, that is a team not as good as many other teams in the american league. can't be too much longer before the clubhouse door swings open and george comes charging in.

Enjoy reading your work very much. Cashman buit a garbage team and has to go, Clueless should have been fired after the 2001 WS and for sure after the 2004 playoffs with the red sox. His winning came at the expense of Michaels, Showalter, Watson and the rel manager Zimmer. He manages no different than he did with the Mets, Cards and the Braves,"CLUELESS" Now for the good part the playes stink no fight in them, cowards just the way torre programed them.Jeter is agreat BB player but the money went to his head always talking to the opposing players laughing, clowing in the dougout. Do you think Martin, Pinnella,Houk and even Stengel would stand for this. Bauer would put a stop to it immediately same for Nettles. Abreu left the bat on his sholders hoping the called 3rd strike would be a debatable so he would have an excuse and it happened. Singleton said the pitch before was the one to hit and never look at close 3rd strike you have swing, but is a trademark of the team of misfits, they take to many pitches and look at call 3rd strikes, it worked from1996-2001 which was a different team. I have been a yankees fan since 1946 and this bring me back memories to the 1965-1973 years, Thanks.

Certainly, Abreu could have expanded his strike zone, and certainly should with two strikes, but that called third-strike pitch was so outside that it passed over the home plate side chalk line for the right-hand batter's box.

Had Abreu 'expanded' his strike zone, he would have struck out swinging on an extremely bad pitch and the story today would be about how, with the tying run on first, Abreu struck out on a ball way out of the strike zone. He did not swing at the pitch; so, you defend the umpire whose job of calling a 98 mph fast ball is a lot easier than hitting one.

The way he is going, Abreu probably would have made out, but at least he would have made the out, not Jeff Nelson. Also, Abreu tends to walk a lot, which just might have happened and the game might have turned, but we'll never know.

So go on and continue to rag on A-Rod, Abreu, Giambi, etc. because they are failing to do something that very few of us can do at all, much less at the ML level and defend an umpire who blew a strike call that an American Legion umpire should not miss; it' what you guys do best, criticize.

Joe, you are a complete moron. The yankees had plenty of chances and stunk up the field, but you write 4 paragraphs on one single call, a mistake, by the umpire.

And you defend the yankees by asking how many here coud have hit it? Go back to your mother's basement. You shouldn't be allowed to discuss baseball, much less feed yourself.
