Jorge, I'm still here. I'm just not whoever it is you say I am. I never posted under a different name. I check the boards every night because I appreciate Big Guy's updates and Art Vanderlay makes me laugh. I did make a mistake by ripping several people with my 1st ever post and I apologize for that. It was wrong. I was just frustrated by the consistent negativity of a few people. Anyway, believe what you want. I'm so depressed about Mo right now I don't really care. The image of Mo being carried off like that made me feel like I just had the wind knocked out of me. That is not the way that great player and person should go out. I also have zero blame for anyone on this. He has been following this routine for 20 plus years. It's just a fluke accident to a legend. I wish the best for him whatever he decides.
LOL Now that's way funnier and more clever than your usual insults, loon.
Great job; I'm still chuckling you added BG and Art...HAHA
Does Rivera really need to be in the outfield running after fly balls? The field and warning track looked damp as well. This team doesn't exercise good judgment at all. Joba is one thing, but losing Rivera is ridiculous.
Rivera calls his own shots. Doubt seriously if Giradi, Cashman or the Owner Jr have the "bells" to tell Mo that he couldn't do that. Binder Joe usually goes bananas with over cautions but certain players call their own shots.
I just saw the replay. Mo has done this thousands of times before games. I just don't get why people find the need to affix blame. I honestly don't see how it's anyones fault. Not the Yankees, not Mo, not Cashman, not Girardi, not the organization. Shagging flies seems like something he has loved his whole career. If he conceeded that he shouldn't do that anymore perhaps the game wouldn't be fun for him and he would have quit already. These guys play a somewhat physical game. Mo seems to be a great athlete that stays in great shape. Spit happens!! It sure is a sad day. I'm not looking to upset anyone it just seems that on a daily basis for everything that ever goes wrong we need some fall guy.
It's not like I tried to hide it. I admit it, I'm not rational about this team. Ever.
Well I understand that ... hence your name ... but try not to blame this on Mariano ... the man has been the heart and soul of this team for many years ... he was just doing what he has always done ... shag balls in the outfield ... it's his own way of warming himself up for a game.
