    I wish that my Dolphins could only follow suit. Salary cap be damned! Anyway the Yankees are winning the old fashioned way with home-grown talent and a less than mercurial payroll (so un-Yankee like). I'm sure that Steve Ross knows the Steinbrenner's, can't he get any tips? Yankee haters need not reply.........we already know what the greatest franchise in sports history has accomplished.;) Personally I am a bigger Dolphins fan though and it kills me to suffer through such mediocrity for so long!!!!!

    The scary thing is they're doing it with a very mediocre team BA. Just wait until some of those bats wake up. What is it now, 17 of 18? Gatdam.

    Huge Yankees fan here! Love seeing the roll they are on right now. 76ers fan too and even tho they got eliminated by a Boston team last night, the future is bright for them. Now, just need my Phins to turn the corner. Thought we did in '16......

    Been a fan of both the Phins and the Yankees since the day I was born in 1976. Our team are loaded in a way like I’ve never seen before. Not sure if we have the right manager (though I am a fan of Boone and eternally grateful that dope Girardi is gone) and our starting pitching is not deep and we rely way too much on the long ball... but damn this team is deep and powerful and really freaking young.

    The Phins are getting younger and I believe have their coach for the present and future. We have plenty of young talent and it’s time for them to step up and fill the gaps left from the overpaid vets we’ve lost from last year. Wish I could say I’m as excited for this years team as I am for the Yankees but if Tannehill is healthy we’re going to be a lot of fun on both sides of the ball with the youth and speed that we have. Almost feels like a Jimmy Johnson D combined with a Mike Leech O.

    How ****ty is it that we’re all looking up (and now slightly below in MLB) at Boston teams. Damn F that town!! Not a Sixers fan (Hawks actually and probably getting your assistant as our new HC) but was pulling for the process. Great future ahead provided the kids stay healthy!

    Wait till they have to pay Judge, Didi, and Sanchez though. Y'all have a very bright future with a lot of homegrown talent, but when you start paying these guys the payroll will look like typical Yankees teams, which is a luxury (tax) that no NFL team is allowed due to the true salary cap. I just pray my Nats can keep Harper, but we not (nobody is) as rich as you guys!!!

    Never gonna be a high BA team. Not a lot of speed on the team and far too much natural power. But if all of the power guys are hitting .270 or better the team will be scary offensively. Nobody will confuse them with the Astros or even the Sux as we just don’t score that way often and I’m mostly okay with that. At least now we’re relying on real HR hitters for playing the bombing style vs the washed up overpriced team we’ve had for too many years between 2009-2015.

    The Yankees will blow by the Red Sux and win the East by at least 5 games. Yanks were 7.5 back two weeks ago and are now up 1. And, Boston has been playing pretty good.

    Will be okay since we’ll be paying peanuts to Gleyber, Andujar, Frazier and some of the young pitching. Thankfully we won’t be overpaying for Harper or Machado next year as I’ve been terrified we would do. Love Harper but I wouldn’t invest 400-500 million in him. He’s no Trout!

    We’ve been fortunate to win so many close games and games where we’ve trailed late. Don’t want to rely on that all year. Can’t expect to sweep or nearly sweep the Sux, Astros and other top teams like this all year either. But do think we can win the division handily. Would love to see Toronto get that 2nd wild card and beat the Sux!

    Not a Jeter fan, Vaark? Couldn't tell by your avatar. Yankee fans sure are glad he shipped out Stanton!

    What a way to start off your career as a GM, shipping off your 1 premium asset to the team you became a legend for :facepalm

    Ozuna and Gordon too. The thing is that LeBetard swears a local Cuban American Billionaire developer who wouldn't have had to go into debt and liquidate the greatest assets was ready to buy the team but the league wanted someone like Jeter as the visible partner even though his group were underfunded. It's ridiculous.

    And has Jeter ever worked in a front office let alone run one? He's just an idiotic over rated baseball player who barely deserves to be a front office intern, let alone run it!

    Sigh.. if only his parents had been into anal!

    If you can manage to give multiple high profile women herpes and continue to plow through them like the Golden Horde then you can sort of own a baseball team IMO. Just gotta stay cool under pressure ... and have Valtrex handy.

    Thanks again for Stanton, Jetes. Quite the even trade.

    The yankees still have Judge and Sanchez cost controlled for 3 years after this one. Not sure about didi. Two more for Severino I think. So our payroll should be very reasonable the next few years.

    I'm curious what we do with Frazier. We just don't have the room for him at the moment. I'm guessing he's traded at some point this year.

    I am a damn Red Sox fan and even I expected this. I think it will be closer than 5 games but we'll find a way to screw it up. BTW, **** David Price! He was the absolute worst acquisition in years and I had a horrible feeling he would be exactly what he is, a fragile crybaby who chokes in crunch time. He's the anti-Ortiz.

    I'll see your "moron" and raise YOU "vacuum-visioned clueless idiot" if you think that over-rated Jeter is even worthy of carrying the jocks of Yankees including but not limited to Ruth, Gerhig, Mantle, DiMaggio, Reggie Jackson and even Casey Stengel. Hell when on the same field, that ******* Jeter wasn't even on par with ARod LOL

    Obviously you are a hater who never had the privilege to watch him play a flawless shortstop. Not only was he a great player but he was a model citizen off of the field as well. He was even loved and respected by the opponent as evidenced by his farewell tour during his last season of active ball-playing. This is the end of my discussing a topic so obvious that it is a waste of my keystrokes.:cigar

    Well then, considering the POS that Jeter either continued to be by many versions or has become by just about all unbiased versions, I will fittingly have the last word.

    Imagine a few years downroad if the Steinbrenner kids sell the Yankees to a group with an older Mike Trout, let's say, as the GM frontman. Yes, that Mike Trout who already is a better ballplayer than Jeter ever was but like Jeter, has no front office experience other than being a good player and no geographic or professional connection to NY or the Yankees. If he decides to start from scratch to maximize the already kings ransom the yankees get for just being in the league and more or less gives away a just in h prime Judge to the Angels and Gleyber Torres to the Cardinals for a bag of fritos, among others, don't tell me that you also wouldn't have wished that the best part of Mike Trout hadn't gone down his mother's throat!

    Again, comparing herpes-giving, promiscuous Jeter on the field to DiMaggio, Mantle, Ruth, Gehrig, Mr October is preposterous .. Now comparing his off the field antics to some of these guys, I'll coede not so outrageous!

    And thanks for conceding to me the final words on POS Jeter. :thumbsup:thumbsup

    I agree he's probably not in the top 10 in terms of pure talent. But he produced. And he was a way better Mr October than Jackson, who had a career BA in the .270s.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd be pissed too if I was a Marlins fan ... but Stanton was leaving regardless and he vetoed the other destinations, so is Jeter really the monster here?

    Actually according to Stanton himself, he tried to reason with Jeter that he didn't need to unload all the top talent. Stanton loves it here as does his visiting dad and definitely wanted to stay.

    Again, according to Dan LeBatard, there was a local billionaire developer, Cuban, which helps with the fan base, who wanted to buy the team and had no intention of making any wholesale changes. However, the league, like they did with Loria, screwed us again by awarding the Marlins to an under-financed group who either lied per their intent or were not properly vetted. I don't live in Miami Dade so I didn't help finance the new stadium under false pretenses but I can imagine how ****ed over those folks feel.

    I guess they do usually wait until after they win the WS before getting rid of their best players, so jettisoning Stanton so soon was unique.

    The people already got screwed over by having to pay for a stadium for a completely irrelevant team so I can't imagine them being pumped about current circumstances.
