More shame brought to the franchise. Downward spiralin since 04. Win in the regular season, blow in October.



Where is the shame? Yankees didn't draft or develop him. Out of his 12 year career, he pitched 95-96 with Yankees. So those years with Dodgers, Expos and Rangers don't count.  In 2005, Wetteland was inducted into the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame


You are being ridiculous.  





There is, and should be no shame Lauren



Was only pointing out that through coincidence, and nothing else, that the 90's Yanks now have had four sex criminals among their ranks.



Was only using a little sarcasm at end of my post. I am quite sure that you have done the same at some point in your life when ending a statement.

Wetteland now brings the 1990's Yankee's "Hall of Shame" number to four (4)



Back in early 90's, Mel Hall was arrested for having a 12 or 13 year old girlfriend, and was arrested in Fairfield CT


I used to seem him driving around in his Lamborghini, then a black Acura  



Then..we all have heard about Chad Curtis. He is still in prison, and I don't remember how much time he was given.


Last one that I am aware of besides Wetteland and the two I wrote about is Knoblauch.


He went to prison on sex related charges too. I don't remember what thyey were, and I don't care about him enough to look it up.


Was there something in the water in the Yankee clubhouse?




Is this implying there was something with the Yankees that led to these men's troubles? All of them had careers of 12-13 years, and played for other teams much longer than the Yanks.


Wetteland (career 12 years, NYY 2), Hall (career 13 years, NYY 4), Knoblach (career 12 years, NYY 4), and Curtis ( career 12 years, NYY 3). With 29 other MLB teams, surely it is very probable that there are plenty of other teams players who have had legal/criminal issues over the past 30+ years.


Those don't get the overall negative media publicity that anyone who ever was a Yankee gets. It seems that a player can have a long career, but if he was on the Yankees for a few months, and gets into trouble, he is always cited as a "former Yankee". 





Yet again, I sense hostility/argumentativeness in your words.


Kmer, no hostility whatsoever, nor argumentativeness.


Hope I am wrong.


You are.


was I implying that there was something wrong with the Yankees?


Of course not, but I shouldn't have to explain that.


I'm afraid you do, since there seemed to be an implication of that, and you wrote it.


You have never been in a conversation where you punctuate a statement with some sarcasm?


Virtually never, unless my post is clearly, very obviously that. An example of sarcasm being misconstrued was one of Newinn's recent posts on Gardner. He was very obviously being sarcastic based on the thread string, but some still interpreted it as him being serious. That is because people cannot readily discern sarcasm in a written post. I would respectfully recommend you use (sarc), or some identifier at the end of a post or sentence if it is intended sarcasm. That was something I came across online; it seems useful to easily detect if one is being sarcastic.


I was just noting nthat the Yankees had four players in the 90's that are now sex criminals.


Understood, I just didn't get the point of stating it. It isn't a positive thing, and as Yankees fans, hardly something we wish to broadcast on our message board. There are plenty of opposing fans who love to attack and demean our team at every opportunity.

Good thing I learned to separate the performers from the human being in sports long ago, or else I'd never enjoy the games anymore.

And people here attack and demean the Sox, the Mets, Cubs, and whoever else performs well in a given season.



And this is a message board where we all come to discuss Yankees, past, and present, and at present, there are four Yankee's from the 90's that are now acuused, and/or convicted sex criminals.



I did not put up the thread about Wetteland. I replied and posted in it.



And..I SHOULD NOT have to explain what was being said. 



"Was there something in the water"?? If this is offensive to you, you really need a valium.



I have been posting here since 02. Granted, I had to alter my screen name due to the harrassment I was receiving from certain people who take my ex-profession way too seriously. Just like what we used to do on tv, the angles, the exaggerated violence, the fueds, the in-fighting, the "Monday Night Wars", which was all a big work and drama we put on in the ring to entertain people (and I hope I do not have to explain that none of that nonsense was real, although the bumps/bruises/injuries were all too real), it was not intended to be taken literally, and from where I sit, the only people who would take it literally either have a problem, or just want to argue for arguing's sake.



You say I am wrong about that. 



Yet you replied and re-iterated what you said.



Unreal.

Hope they have a blanket party, and he's the guest of dishonor!


Then maybe a neutering??? Or worse!
