Current Projected

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.

Mariano Rivera Contemplating Retirement?

From Bryan Hoch at

General manager Brian Cashman called Rivera on Tuesday to check on the closer’s future plans and was informed that no final decision has been made.

“I talked to Mariano Tuesday night, and he is not sure what he’s interested in doing just yet,” Cashman said. “I think in Spring Training he was intending to retire at the end of the year, so I don’t think he knows what he wants to do just yet. Am I surprised by that? No.”

Cashman said that the Yankees do not need an answer at this moment, and likened Rivera’s situation to that of left-hander Andy Pettitte, who said that he needs about a month to decide what he wants to do next year.

Rivera’s season ended on May 3 with a torn right anterior cruciate ligament, and he vowed he would pitch again in 2013.

“I am coming back. Put it down,” Rivera said the day after he sustained the injury chasing a fly ball during batting practice. “Write it down in big letters. I’m not going down like this.”

Mo, don’t go! I wrote it down in big letters just like you said!

Seriously, though, while obviously no one could blame Rivera if he didn’t feel like playing next year, it would royally suck if he did not return for one last season for us to lavish him with praise. He certainly won’t be pitching in 2014, so his contract shouldn’t be an issue. Just give him a nice chunk of money for one more year, like $8-10 million. It won’t affect the austerity plan.
