Hilarious Article

Postby tooslim73 » Wed May 23, 2007 5:41 pm

The Yankees are a joke, an absolute joke...

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/05/23/sport ... ref=slogin

I especially like this part...

Like the Red Sox chasing Clement, the Yankees pursued Japan’s Kei Igawa, whom they scooped up for a tidy $46 million. Igawa, after stumbling to a 7.63 earned run average with the Yankees this year, is at the team’s minor league complex in Tampa, Fla., where he is learning a new way to throw the ball to home plate. In effect, the Yankees have spent $46 million for someone whom they are now reteaching the basics of his position, as if he were a raw prospect in high school.


8-o

"...learning a new way to throw the ball..." Holy crap !!


I've got a great idea, they should take down Yankee Stadium and build a sweet new....

Oh yeah...

Nothing wrong with posting an interesting article in this forum.

I enjoyed it. I wouldn't call it "hilarious", but it was a good read. Certainly no reason to be a jerk about it.

I wouldn't say that article is that hilarious... Are you sure you're not a Sox fan?

Interesting? Whats interesting about it? The yankees signed pavano the sox signed clement.

The Sox signed Matsuzaka the yankees signed Kei Igawa. Wow thats 2 examples of the Sox/Yanks trying to out due each other and it really isn't even a strong example.

And worse the poster of the thread starts bashing the yankees in no relation to this article what so ever. Which is more why this thread is worthless.

I honestly didn't even read his post; I just clicked the link. Fair enough. I still found the article mildly interesting.

Probably so.

But who's your favorite team? Shouldn't you be rooting for them?
