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.

Yankees.com: Niese ‘proud’ to wear Yankees uniform

Now that Jonathon Niese has traded the Mets’ orange and blue for Yankees pinstripes, he’s hoping to find out what it will be like to pitch on the other side of a Subway Series this summer.

After agreeing to a Minor League contract with the Yankees, Niese was in uniform for Monday’s workout at George M. Steinbrenner Field. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that Niese will compete for a spot in the bullpen.
“I’m really fortunate to be part of this organization,” Niese said. “It’s probably one of the most successful franchises in history, so I’m proud to wear the uniform.

“With the Mets, they treated me well there. I had a lot of good years, made a lot of great friends. I have nothing but great things to say about that organization, but just like every ballplayer, sometimes you’ve just got to move on. Careers go in different directions.”

The Yanks have Luis Cessa, Chad Green, Bryan Mitchell, Luis Severino and Adam Warren competing for spots in the rotation, with some of those candidates likely to wind up in the bullpen.

Niese is a decent enough addition. The risk is pretty much nil. The upside isn’t much, either, but eh, at least it’s not much of a risk.

Chris Carter had a great quote about his offseason: “It’s definitely a tough offseason this year, but it seems like the game is changing a little bit where there is more emphasis on complete players,” Impressive self-awareness there.
