    Soups, Hill is a Seattle fan first and a Yankee fan second. For some reason he dislikes the Red Sox and comes in here with a small needle and enjoys pricking.

    I have noticed "tons" of comments on this board that the mods let ride concerning the girth of a few Yankee pitchers.

    Funny, how the 3 guys with the skinniest ERA's on the Sox have a collective 150+ waistline.

    Cmon, matsui, the NY press is no different...they love to be doomsayers when the Yankees are struggling.

    Texas is a pretty good team now.  You guys already proved that.

    the yanks have one ace. Hughes can't throw hard anymore. So there real #2 will be a bust. Burnett has never won many games and is on the verge of self-collaspe at the age of 34. Nova is nothing to be scared of. He gives up lot's of hits. Garcia and Colon are shot. And the yanks just hit home runs, not base hits for rallies. Gardner is a mediocre player with no stick at all. Jeter has already make like 2 or 3 errors.

    MM - Hughes was bloody horrible - end of conversation and his FB was about 5 mph short and considering we have Nova and Garcia as our 4 & 5, maybe us Yankee fans shouldn't be worrying about the Sox rotation miscues at this point.

    Cano         .231
    Granderson .182

    It is true that our game thread has much infighting and is embarassing. We will never know if Andrewmitch and Georom are embedded Yankee fans. They sure act that way or are terrible Red Sox fans. In either case that thread is not worth going to.

    Re: Congratulations is due to the overwhelming favorites and their full "ACES" staff. 11/2011

    "Regardless of how intense the competition was or wasn’t (during spring training), Ivan Nova felt that he was ensconced in a serious skirmish and treated every outing as if it were more than a spring appearance. Nova felt that he had to be as precise as possible to convince the Yankees of his value. Even after Nova secured the fourth spot, he isn’t changing his approach. He is hauling that competitive philosophy into the season.

    “I had to fight for a spot,” Nova said. “That helped me a lot. Every time I go out there now, I’m thinking that way. I have to fight.”

    Nova is thinking and acting like a pitcher who expects to thrive.

    “I have to feel that nobody is going to hit me,” he said. “I have a plan.”

    For Nova, the plan is to attack hitters with a sinking fastball that averages about 93 miles per hour and produces bushels of grounders. Nova also has a changeup that dives and is a great complement to his fastball, a solid curveball and a decent slider. When Nova experimented with a cut fastball this spring, he ended up with a pitch that acts more like a slider by having a bigger break. Nova, who puts more pressure on his middle finger when throwing the cutter that masquerades as a slider, called it a “new toy.”

    In a spring where young Yankees like Manny Banuelos, Dellin Betances and Andrew Brackman were discussed and dissected every day, Nova, another young pitcher who actually had a great chance to be on the Opening Day roster, didn’t receive nearly as much attention. In some ways, that was odd. Nova, who is 24, is one year younger than Brackman and one year older than Betances. Banuelos is 20.

    “When everyone talks about the young pitchers, he flies under the radar a bit,” said Damon Oppenheimer, the Yankees’ Vice President of Amateur Scouting. “He shouldn’t. People should talk about him.”

    JoSoMo = Nova wins

    I wonder what the betting line was for Nova to notch a victory before any of the top 3 in the Sox rotation?

    Can Nova make it two wins before one of the top 3 discover a way to record a single victory? If so, that would take place in Fenway this weekend.

    Re: Congratulations is due to the overwhelming favorites and their full "ACES" staff. 11/2011

    MM - all fair points. I NEVER go to a game thread, people swa to easily on one pitch, I enjoy the game with people around me in person, not people overreacting on the net...but yes, it's maddening at times. It's not just the Sox, NE fans in general change with the tide.

    As for the 4 player comparison, it's not that I was saying any of them were headed down, just stating that in 5 years, I'd rather have the Boston 4 (nice skirting around Crawford BTW). Ortiz was a hidden gem when he got here, and established himself as a star, but I'm not so ignorant to forget baseball is a business. In years past, I wouldn't consider letting him walk at any point...but now, with the 20mil a year salaries, and 200mil payrolls...sentiment gets checked at the door with my coat. I'll always love Ortiz, but I'm not going to be disappointed to get the 12.5mil back to spend elsewhere. If he could play ANYWHERE in the field, I may feel differently.

    I try to be reasonable at all times. A few years back when the Sox were up 9-0 in the season series against the Yanks...I was in the very small minority that kept parroting "it's a long season". My Yankee loving coworker actually THANKED me for not being a d!ck about it. I guess my above response was brought on by all the laughing from outsiders, and doom and glooming from locals. You'll be here later in the season, I'm sure of that, I've noticed you around for a while...your cohorts, on the other hand, many are the very definition of "troll" and when I'm in the right mood, they really make me wish they'd run their mouth like they do in person...so I guess that's a win for them.

    No Sox fan needs to be told how embarrassing or historically bad that first series was...kind of like no Yankee fan has to be reminded who the ONLY team to blow a 3-0 series lead in the playoffs is...we all just know. No need to rub someone's nose in it, but you're allowed to have your fun. Thanks for at least having the decency to craft an intelligent response.

    Oh, and don't discount Kinsler, he had a bad 2010 because of injuries, he's in Pedroia/Cano's class as a 2B.

    Re: Congratulations is due to the overwhelming favorites and their full "ACES" staff. 11/2011

    Texas WAS in the WS last year, something no northeast team can say.

    These three games represent 2% of the season. If you want to go ahead and print your playoff tickets, go for it. I'll wait for the other 98% to unfold. Even ater starting 5-13, and the myriad injuries that they suffered which..."taint easy" to deal with, nor have many teams ever suffered THAT many losses (star 2b, borderline AS 1b, supposed preseason ace, starting LF and CF, C....etc, etc)...even after that start, and those injuries....they got to 89 wins. I'll take another 5-13 start, general good health, and I still like the Sox chances to take the East.

    Hey, at least Curtis Granderson is hitting! He was worth giving up Austin Jackson AND MORE! And Jeter's starting off well with his 20mil per, 3 year deal! And "Philthy" Hughes is every bit as good as Lester, no no, keep telling yourselves he's a future ace with his 88 mph fastball.

    Point is, worry about your own problems, the Yankees have plenty. Drew and Ortiz come OFF our books this year. How's the future looking with Tex, Cano, Jeter and Arod (who, admittedly is off to a fiery start), especially after CC opts out (at which point I'll AGAIN get to listen to Hank blow hot air about not resigning if he opts out, then paying the biggest contract in the history of baseball for pitchers). I'll take Pedroia, Youk, Gonzalez and Crawford all day, every day, this year, five years from now.

    So have your fun now. Many of us are here to take it now. When the tables turn, I won't be surprised when you all take a month long hiatus from the inevitable beating that will come your way. If you can dish it out, be here to take it, otherwise go watch the NBA, who supports that type of behavior.

    Congratulations "are" due to the overwhelming favorites and their full "ACES" staff. 11/2011

    Allowing 11 HR's in the very 1st series of 2011 is full worthy of recognition.

    Tain't easy.

    Congrats are also due for Carl Crawford. The man put together the first 2 hits for the 7,8,9 positions in the Sox loaded lineup, thus RAISING the avg. ALL THE WAY to a lusty .0666 for the bottom 3rd.

    Again, tain't easy.

    Nova impressed. Love the action on his pitches, and his motion is easy. The kid can win 14-16 games, if not more.

    If not for that sickly little 2 out nubber to 3rd he might have shut em' out.

    Joba did his job.

    Re: Congratulations is due to the overwhelming favorites and their full

    mo, until friday night, i didnt even know you were on the forum. for some reason, you felt the need to point out to me you were on the game thread. i always post the score/updates on the NYY games for those who dont get yes in their area.  it was an update, not the final pitching line. when i flipped over it was 7 runs, didnt realize colon allowed 2 runs so quickly;) my mistake. what does the fact the sox were losing have to do with the yankee game/score/pitching? i dont seem to pay half as much attention to the yankees as you do the red sox.  you're taking issue with updates of a NYY game on a sox game thread/site, but you spend time on a sox forum?  seems you can come here and talk Sh*t about the sox, but no one can say anything about the yankees, not even a score/update on the game, is that it?

    mo, i'm on record as stating more than once, i welcome the yankee fans here and feel the board is better for it, as long as they're civil, respectful and follow the posting policy,  red sox fans included. i'm not sure what your problem with me is. but it's yours, not mine. i'm here to talk about and support my team. not to take issue with you or anyone else. give it a rest M there are much more important things in life.

    "I will persist, win or lose."

    No you won't. I guarantee you if the Yankees have a rough season and wind up totally out of playoff contention you will be nowhere to be found. I know your type, you're the Internet bullypunk who tries to dress that up a bit in a few stats but what you live for is deriving self esteem from others misfortunes. 

    I have never posted in a Yankee forum and that one fact puts me on a level you can never aspire to. Have fun in the muck.

    I don't get how Yankees can say something about 0-3? As they know its not to hard to overcome two examples 2004 and 1998. if im not mistaken in 2004 we were losing 0-3 to the yankees and ended up winning the world series right?
    1998 yankees were 0-3 then 1-4 and ended up 114-48. So stop talking about how bad we are cause we are 0-3 and remember some history :)
