    LT, gotta a pinched nerve in neck/shoulder. It ain’t fun. That’s why I haven’t been on lately. Go Lakers and Yanks!

      You better get well by tomorrow, DJ. We’re going to need all the help we can get. I do like the Sevy gamble. Let’s see what the kid is made of. His career is on the line. Is he for real? I think so.

      Who you want to start on Wed, DJ? I’m leaning to Sevie but with a short leash, Boone will go with Happ, which is also OK to me. Funny how that one game comes down to which pitcher has his best stuff that day. Go, Yankees.

    LT-Hope we get better soon. Our lineup is pathetic. Got guys like Gardy and Hicks hitting under .250. Higashi, Voit, Robinson under .200 with Walker and Bird barely above. We have a few guys that we might give a call to, hopefully.

      We just won two games. You need to learn how to enjoy the journey. SMH, DJ.

        Need changes, that’s all. I have been a player and coach and always strive to put the best team on the field and win, not lose. Why did we not claim Verlander last year? Major oops! We also let Sale go to the Sox, ugh. JD Martinez Was just floating, looking for some kind of deal. Oops, Sox got him too. You have always talked about pitching and I agree. You should go to Pinstripe Alley, it’s really cool, talks straight, not so Pollyannish. Really good reads. : )

          Well, wake up, DJ, because the trade deadline is past and this is our team. Either root for them or shut up. If you can’t see that Cashman has done a great job overall, there’s no reason for us to talk Yankees. I love this team and I’m rooting for them even if they have to play a wild card game. That’s just baseball.

          I also have no interest in Pinstripe Alley and all the ‘entitled’ Yankees fans there who only want to talk about moves the team should have made with the benefit of hindsight. I don’t waste my time on what could have been done, especially when we still have the second best record and the best 9-player lineup in baseball.

          Time to start looking at things half glass full rather than empty, DJ. I have no problems talking Yankees but don’t come at me with we should have traded for this guy or that guy, especially after the fact. And stop the crying about Verlander. You’re making me angry the way you abandon ship even after we win.

          Sorry but that’s not being a fan in my book. You should try rooting for another team. You might then understand how to appreciate all the great things happening for the Yankees.

          Be a Yankee fan and not another f*****g troll, DJ. You don’t like being second then become a Red Sox or Astros fan. Get it together, man, you’re better than that. At least I hope so. If I seem to be screaming at you, it’s because I am. Just stop it!

    Slow NBA day. LT, are you becoming a little more concerned for our Yanks? Boston is just better, especially pitching. Am I correct in thinking that 3 teams are playing for 2 WC spots (NYY, SEA, OAK)? Monster game tonite. We either will fall back 4 of the 4 or a win tonite would only be a fallback of 2.

      Red Sox playing great. It’s a long season and we’re missing out best two hitters. Boston is red hot right now. Yankees will likely have to win the Wild Card game so all we can do right now is be patient. I trust Cashman and I think Boone is doing fine for his first year. Still a long way to go, DJ. Patience. Still second best record in majors.

        Their Matchup with whoever wins WC is a bad one. Doubt the Sox get out. JMO. Thoughts Tom?

          I don’t see anybody beating the Red Sox right now but there’s still a long way to go. In baseball, it’s all about your pitching and hitting being hot at the right time. I do think the Yankees will have their chance but might not make it until we can fix the pitching next year. Yankees are really in same situation as Lakers with LeBron. They could have gone all in on winning this season but both franchises don’t play the one ‘ship game. We play the dynasty multiple ‘ships game. As great franchises do.

    One key to me is Christian. If you are one, then follow the words of Jesus and take care of the least and so on. If you aren’t a Christian then I totally understand why one might want not to share toys and hugs and laughs and money. I used debates in my Government classes in High School. This dates me, but one side takes the Kent State students side and the other takes the Ohio government and National guard. I want to know the pros of your side and the cons of the other side. Many of my students received an A from both camps. I taught my students to view from all angles, question and move forward. Think and think, listen to learn and learn to listen.

    PS-By Christian I mean that’s the majority of religion in the USA.

    DJ2KB24 “out” for tonite. : )

      Deej, you do need to separate those Christians who actual know and study the Bible from those who don’t.
      One is not a Christian by default if they were born here and haven’t chosen another faith.
      One is also not a Christian because they simply “Beleive in God.”
      I may be telling you things you already know, but there are folks who love to bash Christianity on this site out of ignorance.
      Christianity is unlike every other “religion.” Religion is man’s attempt to get closer to God. It’s a set of guidelines and actions to follow. In REAL Christianity, the work has already been done on the Cross. There is NOTHING I can do to bridge the gap- my works are like “filthy rags.”
      As it has already been written, there will be many “luke warm Believers.” Revelation 3:16.
      These types will be “vomited out of my(God’s) mouth.”

        A bit judgmental are we? If you’re nauseated by “luke warm Believers” (I’ll put myself in that category), how do you feel about Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus and others who are complete non-believers in Jesus Christ?

        mc- I think we are saying about the same. My prob is not with any religion, it’s more the hypocrisy of any religion. I am not a judge, but I can evaluate.

    Hey LT, NYY comments. Wonder why Boone played Wade and sat Andujar? Can’t he play both games at age of 23? Wade has struggled for 3 years now. Sev is kinda wobbly. Walker starting to hit! Heard rumors of Yanks experimenting at some point with Sanchez at first? I also see that we are not locked in for a wild card, only a few games up on Oak and Sea. Yikes. Hopefully CC gets us back on track.

      Just 1 game out of 162, DJ. Don’t get your panties all bunched up. Let’s see what the Cashman does the next couple of days.

    LT, don’t take me tooooo seriously. Am enjoying the ride. I like to play GM for Yanks and Lakers (Got us LBJ, didn’t I?). Ya’ll will thank me in June, ha, ha.

      All right, DJ. Just worried about you, my friend. Lakers and Yankees set for another decade of championships. Don’t let the little stuff or minor setbacks derail the fun train. And LeBron and Judge may be the superstars but it’s still a team game and both Yanks and Lakers have great fun rosters. Over the next year or two, we’ll fill those holes and become juggernauts. So chillax and enjoy the ride, DJ.

      By the way, there’s a lot more to building a championship team than just signing or trading for superstars. You also have to develop strategies for how you’re going to build a championship team. Cashman and Magic are doing exactly that, which requires patience and careful judgment. If you want to play GM, then you need to exhibit more of those characteristics and less of the volatile “cut ’em, bench ’em, or trade ’em philosophy you seem to always fall back on. Just saying. :-)

    Might start shakin a bit now LT. Thinking 1 game wild card. Our pitching is weak in a couple of starters: German and Gray. CC and Tanaka average. We don’t have hitting clutch closers. Too many below average hitters (homers or K’s). I think we struggle, but hold on to a wild card. Boston has homer hitting with high averages.

      Disappointing loss. We need to trade for deGrom. This loss actually helps in that way. I would think you’ve seen enough 162 game seasons to understand there are still 68 games left and the Yankees will make a move. Yankees will be fine and I will take Sevy over anybody else if we have to the Wild Card route.

      You’re an embarrassment as a Yankee and Jeter fan, DJ. Need to pull it together or we’re going to have to take away your handle. :-0

          You daily crying and moaning and complaining isn’t going to help get there or enjoy the journey getting there, DJ. You need to act like your namesake. You don’t let a few bad games ruin the season for you. Come on, man. You know I’m right. Don’t strip the fun out of the journey. For the Yanks or Lakers.

          And frankly, that’s b******t, DJ. Championships at any cost? LMAO. Get real. You think that’s some grand stance that makes you special? If you think like that, you’re not going to enjoy this season or the journey this Lakers team is going to take just like you’re not enjoying the great season the Yankees are having. Wake up, my friend, and stop kidding yourself that this schtick of yours is anything but sophomoric. Nothing but a Chip will do, lol. I don’t think you really believe that and I think you demean yourself by doing it. I should probably delete this post but what the hell. I love you, DJ. but you’re wrong, man. There’s a lot more to the game than just winning. At least in my world. Good night, DJ.

            well, you shouldn’t delete his post or roast him too hard, but i have been saying similar things for a while. i prefer winning, of course, and really, nothing less than winning will do. but there’s no need to cry about it for very long when winning is hard to find. things do what they do. the more we act and react properly, the more we win. fans mostly just watch and cheer or boo, or turn off the television. let’s not get things out of proportion. i mean, i’m not going to take the war so seriously as to march to Oakland with a gun and cripple the Warriors and all of their supporters.

            boy, are we all expecting something great, or what?

            i heard once, that expectations were for the losers. the winners are too busy doing something. when one fails, that’s when expectations come into play. fear of failure works the same.

            that will be $32.50.

            each.
