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.

NYDN: Increasing risk of injury for Pettitte, who will pitch in the WBC, is asking for trouble

Andy Pettitte hasn’t thrown a full, injury-free season since 2009. Over the last three years, including the one he spent in retirement, the lefthander has pitched a total of 204 innings, or approximately what the Yankees are counting on him for in 2013.

So the odds already were against Pettitte staying healthy from April to October, as he turns 41 in June. But now he is pushing the envelope by agreeing to pitch in the World Baseball Classic, considering that he’ll be throwing at his regular-season intensity level by early March.

For a team counting on so many old guys, increasing the risk of injury for someone as valuable as Pettitte is asking for trouble.

Not that the Yankees can do much about it. The WBC is Bud Selig’s baby, and the baseball commissioner demands that teams cooperate in allowing players to participate.

I have to say that I agree wholeheartedly with this.  I don’t see this ending well.
