    Well, I think I worn out my welcome. The Red Sox buses just headed for Florida and it's time to renew an old rivalry. I will let you guys begin the process of dreaming for the next World Series, whenever that may be. Have at it.

    THOSE BUSES HAVE ARRIVED... Local news coverage with all the details including how many balls arrived fills the sports reporting.. Spring Training is a big deal for this area.

    I think the most interesting thing is making sure the Red Sox don't come in last place like the year after they won the World Series last time. You guys do realize you can actually win a bunch of these things in a row, right? It's not illegal.

    You know, the website and the pundits seem to be claiming an off season victory for the Yanks, but I just don't see it as yet. I still think they need to sign, Manny and another starter. Paxton was a great move, as was re-signing, Happ. C.C. was nostalgic and all, but he isn't going to make it thru the year effectively, IMHO. Ottavino was a great move as was resigning, Britton so I think the bullpen is pretty well set. With, Paxton's injuries woes and C.C.'s health they still need at least one more quality starter.

    Now, while LeMahieu was a really nice pick up and potentially a gem I don't think Tulowitski was a good move at all. They're also still takng a big gamble at first as well. Now, Manny may not be the deal of the century nor may he be the end all answer, but he sure as hell adds quite a bit of depth to the line up especially when, DiDi returns. And that is another thing, we don't know when he will return or how productive he will be right away.

    Bottom line, I don't think they did very much to even them up or surpass the Sox. Thoughts?

    I think they did enough to overtake the Sox. We are assuming that everyone on the Red Sox will have the same year as they did last year AND stay healthy, which they all did for the most part last year. 4 or 5 players offensively for them had career years. The Yanks weren't far off from them as it was last year.

    As for the moves, I'm happy with them. The Tulo move was brilliant. They aren't paying him anything. If he gives them anything, it's gravy.

    The only way I want Machado is if they then trade Andugar for Bumgarner. Otherwise, I pass.

    This is not the type of book to carry to events or signings which are far away however since it has been on the list to get signed for a long time I have a special case to house it when there is a chance of running into someone in a parking lot.
    We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring

    Well, the Yankees didn't get Machado. Season is over. Honestly, they should just contract the Yankees now. There's no hope for the future.

    Machado and his string of one 100 RBI season in a row is something they will never overcome. Let's also not forget he played his entire career in one of the best hitters ballparks in baseball and will now be playing in one of the worst hitters ballparks in baseball.

    Almost there.................Almost there!!!!!!!!!!!



    So, I like to incentivize for my doctors when I'm in the hospital and my Hemotologist is very good and a great friend. He is almost as huge a fan as I so by way of a "Thank You" for his efforts during this surgery I got him a signed Yankee baseball. Graig Nettles, the intrepid 3rd baseman from the '70's, a favorite of us both not only for his play at 3rd but also for acting as the referee between, Munson & Jackson during those playoff/WS runs. Naturally, his signature (verified by Steiner) is on the ball but he also wrote "Boston Sucks"!!! lol lol

    That's a collectible that will stick out!!!! LOL LOL LOL

    Yankees supposed to play an exhibition game at Nationals Park. Originally I was going to get tickets but didn't due to Retina Surgery ten days ago. I still cannot drive and my wife can't get the time off from work to take me! Besides its supposed to rain later today.

    By the way, if you've ever had a gas bubble put into your eye its really really bizarre. Its there to put pressure on the surgery site (the macula) to aid in the healing process. Of course for the first few days you have to remain head down so that the bubble rests on the macula. I'm past that now but can still see the bubble even with my eye closed.

    Sorry for hijacking the thread. Just logged on today to see what's up and only looking at a few threads due tot he annoying gas bubble in eye.

    Back to the Yankees. Baseball season is finally here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My dad had to have a procedure on his eye where he had to keep his head down for almost a month. He had to sleep, eat and take a shower without lifting his head. They gave him one of those massage chairs and he would use a mirror to watch TV. While watching baseball, he said it was always weird because the players would run down third base.

    It was no fun. Hopefully, you're doing better.
