In Your Heart of Hearts, Do You Really Have a Connection with This Team?

   Anyone who is a fan of Yankee baseball has to love watching Andy, Derek and Mo achieve career milestones that will be memorialized on  plaques in Cooperstown somewhere down the road. The injuries each had during the year did take away from the season...but that is part of the game. As for today...I think we are getting a bit weary talking more about salary caps than about baseball. Accounting never was much fun for most of us.

holy cow - now the "fans" need an emotional connection to this team...  geez, why don't you just sit on your couch with a tub of bon bons, turn on the Lifetime network and have a good cry....





what do you mean "now"? I've always had an emotional connection to the yanks. i love the history, the tradition and i've loved the growth process of many of the teams. im surprised you think it's an odd notion that a fan would have an emotional connection to the team. to me thats what sports is all about. alas, i know you take any and every opportunity to make corny closed-minded remarks to mock the expressions of other posters.

For all those who live and/or work in the NY/NJ/PA area, ya know how today is so dark, cold, and wet? Well, for me, it's been an all-day mood killer.


Then I re-read this ridiculous post and it got me laughing again.


Good job, man!

They're the Yankees.


I'm a Yankees fan.


That's the connection.

Yes, I do feel a connection. They wear pinstripes at home and have an interlocking NY on their caps.

I'll always be a fan of the Yankees and have been since I've tipped the scale at 60 pounds. No matter who owns, manages or plays for the Bombers, win or lose I'm a fan.


I don't like it when they lose. I think the Steinbrenner dress code is a joke. The restaurant blocking the view of some fans and Monument Park is a disgrace. $2,500 seats are pathetic. $8 domestic draught beer is immoral.


So what. LGY!

While I will always root for this team the way the boys are ruining running this organization has really subdued my zeal for this franchise.


 


 I once not too long ago had confidence in Cashman's vision for the minor leagues and it's ability to bear fruit but we've seen little of late and no top end talent on position players looks like it's on the cusp.  I have little hope for help from the farm or it's ability to develop talent other than the occasional guy that figures it out on his own.  To be frank the farm looks barren.   I understand there is talent at the lower minor league levels but doesn't everyone have lower level talent? 


It looks like they have recognized some weaknesses on the pitching end and removed some people but in my opinion not enough has been done... Is the old boy network in effect or are they serious about the winning championships and building a team that can contend for a championship with consistent help from farmhands?   It's going to be needed to offset some of these poor contracts the team has doled out .   Rodriquez's contract is the worst in baseball and most Yankee fans knew it from day one.   The team not bringing any of these guys into the fold with knowing the coming restraints Cespedes, the pathetic bid for Darvish and not going the distance on Jorge Soler was so sorry it was laughable.


 


The owners have the nerve to still charge top shelf prices yet the way this organization is bottom feeding for "talent" is despicable.   It's more evident than ever there was never a plan other than making it up as they went along.   On a little different tune I'd like to know why this team has told it's affiliates to change their names from Yankees, did I dream this?   It has to be out of greed.    Say what you like about the Boss but I wish his boys had an ounce of the zeal their father had for this franchise.   I'm a believer GMS not only loved the Yankees but the fans too.  I don't get either from these two.  It looks like it's all about the benjimans for these folks.  Take, take , take......


 


Sorry for the rant people I don't want to pee on anyones good spirit this holiday season but I've had my fill of these guys, which would include letting Levine undercut Cashman.....

Always will have a connection to the Yankees but his year will be difficult. But I still have Jeter, Pettitte and Mo.
