...hall, congrats to "Goose" Gossage on his election to the Hall Of Fame, still one of my fav players.
In an amazing turnaround A-Rod looks to be back in pinstripes after he went behind his agents back to negotiate with the Yanks hierarchy who also had to do an about turn after they said they wouldn't deal with him.
Funny how seeing certain films gets your mind wandering about the strangest things, welcome to casting for the new Carry On film Carry On five NFL.
Martin Jol let it be known that it was chairman Levy and director of football Comolli that made the signings that created an unbalance to the team. Not that this came as a great surprise to many.
...is A-Gone. As Alex Rodriguez opts out of the final three $91 million years of his deal and so the Yankees hierarchy say they won't be negotiating with the free agent.
Say it ain't so Joe, it was an offer he couldn't accept, as the Joe Torre era ends for the Yanks after he declined their one year $5m deal.
Could this be the end of the New York Yankees Joe Torre era with their third straight first round playoff exit the Boss ain't happy and he wants more.
After the worst possible start the Yanks again for the 13th straight season made the playoffs after one hell of a second half of the season but A-Rod didn't get those projected RBIs and homers ;)
It was an up and down weekend sport wise, with mainly downs as England's cricket and rugby teams failed along with Spurs but ended well with the Yanks taking the series at Fenway 2-1.
Sad news that former Yankees shortstop and broadcaster Phil Rizzuto died earlier this week aged 89.
Alex Rodriguez becoming the youngest player to hit 500 home runs by almost a year is some feat, now hejust has to go on in pinstripes not only to get the total record but to also get a ring.
I don't know if compulsary helemets should be brought in after the tragic death of AA Tulsa Drillers 1st base coach Mike Coolbaugh at the weekend, it's amazing it doesn't happen more often and it brought to mind Michael Holding v Brian Close in 1976.
With the All Star Game gone so has the first half of what hasn't been the best season for the Yanks, they'll have to pick it up to have a hope of getting into the playoffs.
Didn't know why the world had been searching for Joslyn Noel Morse pics again after her 15 minutes of fame were up but it was because of Cynthia Rodriguez's 'Fuck You' t-shirt.
The Rocket Roger Clemens and Andy Pettite must feel like they're back in Houston with the Yanks slumping bats this year.
