...the pain has ceased. The expensive disaster that was the 2009 New York Yankees have turned into a great team over night with their first win of the season.
...supposed to go like this. Wang is meant to be the New York Yankees stopper, they weren't meant to be worse off than last year...it's only two games in.
...was it? I was supposed to post yesterday about the New York Yankees win in their opening game of the season behind Sabathia and Teixeira, things conspired to stop this happening.
...would be spending. So of course I wanted them to get the two top notch free agents this off season and thankfully they did it.
...oooose. Called out one last time as Mike Mussina calls it a day in the big leagues, his name is up there with some famous old players but does it mean the HoF?
...Madden...and the rest of the boys down in Tampa Bay for winning game 7 of the ALCS and making it possible to watch the World Series this year.
...oooose. One bright spot on a dank season for the Yankees is Mike Mussina finally getting 20 wins after 18 years of trying.
...the final game at Yankee Stadium. At least they didn't blow this part of the season and saw the old place off with a win over the Orioles, helped by Jose Molina who hit the last home run at Yankee Stadium.
...totaling 40 games. And this is the first Toxic Web post about the baseball season, how could it have taken so long, is it because the Yanks are doing badly but not as bad as before?
...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.
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.
