Default Re: Someone\'s gotta be fired on the Yanks

Get ready for some bad baseball from the yankees after this year. They can and probably will recover to at least make the playoffs this year, but just like in the early 80's Steinbrenner just couldn't handle merely having a "competitive" team he wanted to dominate the competition. You would think he had learned his lesson when he destroyed the yankees of the late 80's by trading away a shitoad of great prospects for aging superstars that never really gelled as a team (sound familiar). For the next 10 years or so we will watch as other teams succeed with our prosects that we traded for guys who will be retired in 3 years. There was not a single move this offseason that didn't have Steinbrenner all over it. Unfortunately for him Cashman will pay the price even though now he is only the GM in title only

after seeing the kc sweep, my hopes have diminished quite a bit. i think that could very well have been the nail in the coffin.

The Yankees have averaged only seven hits a game over the past six games. Don't know what firing Mel will do. One would think perhaps Mattingly might be in jeopardy.

It's just not a very good team. It happens. They've made the post-season every year since 1995.

Womack adds a dimension you just cant get with Cairo in speed.

I know Womack is fast, but is he really that much faster or aggressive on the basepaths than Cairo?

The stats say: "not really":

Womack: 16SB (188 AB, .310 OBP)
Cairo: 7SB (88 AB, .333 OBP)

Cairo > Womack.

Speaking of bad moves, I'd rather have Miguel Cairo instead of Tony Womack

When they did this move I hated it and wouldve agreed with you but I think now it was the right move. Womack adds a dimension you just cant get with Cairo in speed.

Cairo adds a dimension you just can't get with Womack, in talent.

Huh? Cairo's been a backup his whole career, Womack has been a starter. I think Womack clearly has more talent and the thing most Yanks fans liked about Cairo is his intangibles (good clutch hitter, plays hard, etc).
