Look what people have to say about the RLYW!

CAIRO just takes the Marcels and changes the underlying assumptions and components in a bunch of ways that make the Yankees look better.

Wow, two stupid posts in one day. I think you’ve reached your yearly quota.

I don’t know if any of you current posters were around for that, but if so, I just can’t understand how you can call yourselves Yankee fans. Pathetic quitters is what you sounded like. Of the lame posts I could stand to read, the only person who had any confidence in the Yankees at that point was a (yeesh) Red Sox fan.
Jeter is King

Quite the attitude you have SG. Maybe you should shitcan this blog and join Steve at WasWatching? Or follow some other stupid team that has made the PS 15 of the last 17 years. Jeez… and some people think Yankee fans are entitled.

Bernie Williams Falls Off Hall of Fame Ballot After His First Year

While I think there is at least somewhat of a case to be made that Bernie Williams should be in the Hall of Fame, I understood going into today’s ballot results that the odds were extremely thin that it would ever happen. However, I was taken aback when the actual results came out and not only did Williams not make it, but he only received 3.3% of the vote, making him ineligible for any more standard Hall of Fame ballots (he can still theoretically be elected by the Veteran’s Committee decades from now, but I don’t know if he’ll even make the ballot).

That is quite a disappointment, almost as disappointing at how awful the voters for the Hall of Fame are in voting in players (seriously, no selections this year? And the second-highest vote-getter was Jack Morris? For serious?).

Here are the results.

Other notable former Yankees are Don Mattingly with 13.2%, Roger Clemens with 37.6% and Tim Raines with 52.2% (that’s actually pretty good news for Raines. I think that the odds are that he gets in now).
