  1. how many hits will jeter get tonight?

  2. TWASP agrees with you Jim…..

    • IWROTE A FOLLOW UP STATEMENT IN THE NON BASEBALL RELATED THREAT

      AND I DEMAD THE RFBI SHOW UP TONIGHT AT BOOMERS OPENING, AND QUESTION THE PEOPLE THAT ARE SAYING THEY ARE BETTING WITH BOOKIES IN THE TRI STATE AREA,.. INCLUIDING CRAING F’N CARTON

  3. Who says video games can’t be used for research? I tried to put myself in the shoes of Joe Girardi and tried to “manage” the Yankees in MLB 10: The Show. I tried his way and then my way….but I found managing isn’t as easy as you think. Here’s the article I wrote. :)

    http://sportsrantz.com/pinstripenews/2012/09/20/is-it-really-easy-managing-a-baseball-team/

    • research for whjat, sports betrtinhg,.. do it,.. but you want to place a bet on MLB or the NFL,.. you beeter be in vegas,.. or your are a criminal that shoulkd be prosecuted to the full extent of the law

      racketerringt is not something to be taken lightly

      • My research was to put myself in the shoes of Joe Girardi and see what it’s like to manage the team. What’s the hardest part, what the Yankees could do in the future to get runs, you know.

  4. Nix at 3rd? What is going on with this line-up? Where is Nunez? I have a Great-Grandson that could do a better job than this, with building blocks!
    What won the game last night? Speed, that’s what did it, it’s much esayer to get a hit if you have some one on 3rd, that had just stole 2d than 3rd. You face the next batter all out of wack…I would take the bet on half the young pitchers making a mistake, on the hitter at that point.
    Wether anyone wants to hear it or not, Nunez, Ichi (Brett when healthy) and Dickerson, need a spot in the every day line-up…we need to score runs, put some guys that know how to get on base and do something when they get there…with the speed to do something other than one base at a time.
    Speed Kills and last night was no exception!

  5. Ken – SPEED KILLS ™. Is a copywriter term, any rebroadcast without the express written consent of TWASP is prohibited and will result in the banishment of the commenter.

    • read what i wrote in the non baseball thread ,look it up on the internet,… do your homework
      CRAIG CARTON IS COMP;LETEL;Y WRONG TO GLAMORIZE SPORETS BETTING WITH BOOKIES

      AND HE IS EVEN SAYING HE MAKES BETS

      THE FBI SHOULD INVSTIGATE HIM,.. GET WIRE TAPS,… AND ARREST HIS ASS

      FIND OPUT WHGO THE BOOKIES ARE,… S THEY DO \,.. FROM TIME TO TIME,… AND MAKE ARRESTS

      TAXPAYERS AREW PAYIMNG TO STOP IT,..AND CRAIG CARTON IS PROMOTING IT

      BASTARD

  6. Ken – good analysis Nunez should be playing everyday. Girardi is sticking to his plan of not moving him around a lot, concentrating at one SS position.

  7. PS,, THIS WEBSITEHAS NO ROBLEM,… BY LAW, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO DEFAMS A DEAD PERSON,….

    but i am nit even defaming mike,.. he was my friend for life, since he was in first grade and i was in 4eth gradem,, uop to when he died at age 42 and i was 45, or so,…. we were very close for life

    and mike just lioved life very well,.. to make it as pleasant and happy all the time,……

    and i would know

    what mike did as far as the betting,.. was a way to msake mkjoiney tax free,…. but only one of the ways he did it

    mike was just a guy

    and a very nice andgreat guy at that

    but craig carton should shut his pioe hole as to ilegal, sports betting with boioikiesin the tri state area

  8. if you have not read my 3 posts today in the non baseball thread,….. understand at least this point,…. WFAN, nor anyone on the WFAN, CBS,. OR NATIONAL AMUSMENTS, AS THE HOLDING COMPANY,…. SHOULD BE PROMOTING ILEGAL SPORTS BETTING OVER THE AIR,.. OR EVEN OFF THE AIR,…..

    CRAIG CARTON SHOULD NOT BE TALKING ABOUT BETTING WITH BOOKIES AS IF IT WERE LERFITIMATE,.. NOR BE BETTING GAMES HIMSELF

    I IMPLORE YOU TO UNDERSTAND THIS IN THE CONTEXT OF RACKETERRING, MURDER,… ETC….

  9. of course we nbeed gardner,…. we need swiusher, granderson, teiseira, cano,…… arod, jeter,… and martin,…. thats the 8 fielders,…..

    but we have those 8 fioelders at the top,… that leaves 5 placements for the 2013 team

    the 5 placements need to filled

    we already can consider this list

    that is 12 people for 5 positions on the team,…. plus we got to consider out side free agents to fill in one or 2 of those 5 spots

    ichiro
    cerveli
    stewart
    romaine
    jones
    ibanez
    nix
    nunez
    mcgehee
    pierce
    dickersom
    pena

    we definitivley need 2 back up infielfders, 2 back up outfielders, and a backup catcher

    so take your pick,.. or go outside the box

    BUT THE CORE MUST BERTETAQINED INTACT

  10. i’m not that stupid,.. we need those 8 core players to return,… then we gave 5 spots,…

    thats it

    what are you goning to do

    choose from those 12,.. or go out and get other veterans

  11. is larry bowa available? , lol,….. or dave kingman?

  12. jeter is batting 390 over his game hittinmg streajk in september,……. WHEN IT COUNTS THE MOST

  13. TWASP,… not one person, not even you,…. have said you vwere sorry i am felling so bad my friend mike was murdered

    its not a judgement,.,. just an observation

  14. Fish – seems like Arod preferred way to get hits nowadays is to punch ball up middle. do you think this is on purpose or a floor in his hitting mechanics?

    • Many people got excited because ARod had some success quickly upon his return. He did…..and it was much needed. His mere presence in this depleted lineup was/is huge. But many of his hits were bloops and jam-shots to CF. He definitely isn’t feeling good at the plate and it often takes him a while to find his groove. He had a big series against Baltimore but overall since his return, here are his #s:

      16 for 62 (.258 BA) with 20 strikeouts & 4 Walks in 69 PAs, 2 2B’s, 3 HRs – 12 RBI
      his line is .258/.290/.435/.725

      His best stat is his 12 RBI in 16 games as he’s done a good job with 2 Sac Flies and 2 RBI GOs but he clearly does not look comfortable at the plate yet. In his history coming back from injuries he often has some immediate success the first game or first week, but it takes him time to feel it at the plate. Hopefully, he’ll find it soon because they need him and/or Cano to heat up to do well in the playoffs.

  15. Drop the barrel on the ball……..but hit it in the air for home runs…..

  16. a hitter coming back after a long time off needs to get his approach and swing under control.
    He looks like he is setting up and approaching everything a bit different now. Usally one can get started up the middle.
    He is taking a smaller lift and set of his left leg, pluse a few other things.

  17. Well hitting up the middle for hits does help the team as he is settles back into his hitting form. Yeah he does seem to have a smaller leg kick.

  18. Yanks can’t let this game slip away.

  19. I can’t believe we have to get Soriano loose in a game we led by 6 in the 8th inning. The guy threw 2 and a third innings yesterday.

  20. Alex -BOOOOOOOOOOOO,……

  21. D-Rob saves the game! Socks Up! Yankees win!

  22. Really have to wonder if these morons who boo A-Rod watch these games. Pathetic

    • Ikr Matt B. A-Rod may have single-handily jump-started the Yankees’ to this current surge of consistent and winning baseball. If there ever was a time to boo him, it was from 2005-2008. That time is over. hahaha. STOP BOOING A-ROD!!!!

    • Matt b. – Don’t understand why Jeter makes out many times with RISP and never gets booed and Arod gets booed constantly. What do you think the difference is?

      • I think that to myself a lot T-man. Good thought. I don’t ever boo my guys. Even Swisher (who everyone knows I’m not a fan of) If they player is on my team I support them.

      • Only time I remember Jeter getting booed was about 5 years back when he went through a terrible 1 for 41 stretch or something and was hitting under .200 early in the season. Morons started booing him and there was talk in the Media if Jeter should ever be booed. Of course he wound up hitting .300+.

        • I admit that I’ve booed A-Rod once or twice but I try not to (even though I really don’t like him). A-Rod does what he has to do and those “fans” during the Toronto series really had it out for him.

        • It just makes our fans not look knowledgeable since A-Rod was hitting .300 since he came back from the DL until this series.

          • Even worse, booing has no positive effect on your player and may have a big negative effect if he starts pressing. Like Arod in his first few playoffs with the Yankees.

  23. Yeah, I only boo the other team, and then only when they are obnoxious . Beckett, Schilling, Manny, Varitek, pyierzynski, Pedro……

  24. A real Yankee Fan would never boo his players or team. Even back in the mess from 1965 to 1993, a lot of fans booed but as many didn’t…now that was a hard time to be a Yankee Fan.

    As Matthew S, dislikes Swisher, for reasons of his own, I dislike Jeter for reasons of my own…but, the bottom line is, Matt nor I would ever wish them anything but good luck.

    Some, have a hard time getting their mind around that but, it is very simple;

    If one is walking home, and it starts to rain, one dislikes the rain but, if one is at home and the grass is brown, one will thank the powers that be for the rain.
    Very simple, right?

  25. Wow……finally…….TWASP can’t believe it…..after debating for 4 years……Ken has admitted he dislikes Derek Jeter. Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah……….

  26. I get frustrated and call the guys morons and stuff like that to the people I’m watching a game with but I’m never going to boo someone on the Yanks for striking out or giving up a Home Run. That is counter-productive.

    The only time I will Boo a Yankee is for lack of hustling, mental mistakes or poor effort…..there is no excuse for that on a baseball field. It bothers the shit out of me to see guys loaf on the field.

    If there’s one thing my college coach taught me that will stick with me for the rest of my life and anyone who played at Seton Hall will tell you, is his saying that he wrote at the end of all of his letters and said a million times……

    NEVER LOSE YOUR HUSTLE!

  27. Agreed Fish. As a Yankees fan you want every guy on the team to be productive. Booing is not going to help that. I just don’t get it.

  28. Matt B ….for some fans, booing is a way of expressing their dissatisfaction with a given players performance. They paid their money for their seat and now that want their money’s worth. To them booing is saying to the player , take it up a notch, we want more from you.

  29. DEREKJETER WAS NEVER BOOED

  30. How canl anyone in their right mind boo Derek Jeter . The classiest player to come along in decades.

  31. if ljeter opted out after 2013,, and the mets offered him 5 years 100 million,.. jeter might be on the mets,…..

  32. is that the kkk?
