I can't believe they are taking wright...it must be some sort of conspiracy against steinbrenner...Cashman will be fired before the start of the season!

As for Vazquez this year will make or break him.....

P.S>

Dear Santa all i want for Xmas is RJ on the Yankees
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

How about RJ? You seem pretty gung ho on getting him, and he stunk it up for the entire year in 2003. You can't write somebody off after a bad 3 months!

You need to stop thinking that every player they want is available, and after one bad year they have to dump the players who underperformed. Have some patience.

The most important thing here and the one his comments most display a lack of.

He stunk down the stretch of the pennant race contributing in large part to allowing the Red Sox to close the gap down to a couple of games and was horrid in the post-season. Beating up on TB in April and May does not carry a lot of weight in my book. And I have already been over the $34 M he is owed for the next 3 seasons and what we will get if he flops in 05 (nada). For that type of money, I want someone who IS going to perform not one that has his head screwed up in his butt or who is so messed up mechanically he can't fix it for 3+ month sretches at a time and may decide to eventually get his act together. Clemens, Cone, Key, Wells none of these guys seemed to have any trouble. Name one guy who came over, stunk it up for a season and then became good for us on the mound?


He only stunk it up for a half of a season due to MECHANICS not pressure. If you watched the games on YES, like I'm sure you did, you know that Kaat went to great pains to telestrate Javy's slowly dropping arm angle and release point. It was a profound difference.

One key difference between the pitchers you mentioned and Vasquez is that all of them came to the Yanks as seasoned veterans who were in the last phases of their careers. Everyone in the Yankee universe agreed that the rotation had to get younger, as we saw the downside of age with Wells in '03. But with youth comes mechanical inconsistency.
