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.

Hardball Talk: Hideki Matsui announces his retirement

Not necessarily a surprise, but Hideki Matsui has announced that he is retiring. He will hold a press conference in New York to make it official.

We last saw Matsui when he was released by the Rays last August after 34 games. But before that Matsui had himself a nice career. Ten years in the bigs, mostly with the Yankees, during which he hit .282/.360/.462 with 175 homers and 760 driven in. He was the 2009 World Series MVP too, going 8 for 13 with three homers against the Phillies.

I’ll always remember Matsui fondly for 2009 of course, but the play I think about first—and I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before—when it comes to him is the play where he broke his wrist while diving to make a catch.  It was a bad enough injury that it put him out for close to four months and the pain must have been excruciating, but his first impulse was to get the ball back into the infield and not to hold his wrist in agony.

But yeah, 2009 was pretty sweet too.

Farewell Godzilla, and thanks for the memories.
