    Re: Another Yankee pitching bust?

    Sorry everybody - I wouldn't normally participate in a thread hijacking, but you come back to a thread you were interested in, and find a couple of morons congratulating each other on the failure of a US energy investment, and it's hard to keep quiet.  I can buy the argument that oil investment is a temporary necessity, but if you're shouting 'drill baby drill' and thanking God for big oil, you've probably never had an original thought in your life.

    In closing, if the views of ThatWasMe and CamelWalk were any weaker and further to the right, Derek Jeter would have trouble making a play on them.  There - we're back to baseball.

    Banuelos has 2 pitches and poor command.  Betances looked very good in 2010 in a small sample against A ballers, but was very hittable against age-appropriate competition in 2011.  Brackman was DFA'd after being destroyed at AAA.  The 2 other yankees (other than Montero) in the top BA 100 last year were Austin Romine (anybody want to trade Lavarnway straight-up?) and Gary Sanchez, who dropped 51 spots and had discipline issues.  

    We keep hearing how great the Yankee farm system is, but it continues to prove to be a lot of hype.

    When in any of this have you deducted that I am a huge fan of GWB?  He made mistakes although cutting taxes wasn't one of them, this government spends too much money and he approved a lot of it, so I am not a huge fan of his.

    I followed this link, and it's a scouting report that says Banuelos has 2 pitches, and a chart showing he walks nearly 5 per nine innings over the past two years.  How does that refute my statement?

    you can always cross over to the right side of street the mikeyWink

    Wish I  shared your confidence about Romneys chances tho. He'll get the nomination, no doubt about it, but when you can't put Gingrich and Santorum away, there's a problem. He'll limp in but not sure he'll ever have the momentum he needs to get on a roll. I like that Mitts a moderate republican, but thats what may do him in. I think that's what we need after so much partisanship. It's the best way to get things done

    I agree the job market isn't better...I think the unemployment numbers are better because the people who were collecting unemployment ran out of benefits, not that they've found work. The gas prices will continue to be an issue, up again today. The GOP needs to wrap up a nominee sooner than later;stop battling themselves and start campaigning against Obama. He can just sit back and do nothing until they do.

    Because all the professional scouting surveys have him highly ranked; compare that to Doubront, who is at #334. And, FWIW, assuming you're not a professional scout, I'll take their word over a (not completely) homer fan like yourself, unless you have a link/reference to show me otherwise

    It won't go on until the convention, the nominlating process can go on until June and we will be just fine J.  I'd like to see it end earlier but June will do, the base and its financial backers have had enough of this Presidency and will turn out to vote in November and the money for Romney's campaign will be there.  A year from now we will be at the start of a new Presidency and we can put these past 4 years behind us.  Obama did something historic but he is a poor President and manager, its time to turn the page and we will.

    I would rather have the Sox win the World Series this year and knock the Yanks out of the ALCS than endure 4 more years of this Presidency.

    When Romney wins the nomination, some self-serving, anti-science nimrod like Sarah Palin is going to run as a third party and you are going to be dumbstruck by the idea that she is not doing as she as told for the good of the party that created her.  Obama will win easily, but the Republicans will take the Senate and maintain the house.  We will have four more years of nothing getting done, but at least we won't be subject to the epic catastrophe's that were commonplace the last time Republicans held both Executive and Legislative branches of government.

    A Red Sox fan will be in the Oval Office next year and I couldn't be happier about it.

    Of course, you could say: A year from now I hope we will be at the start of a new Presidency.

    Otherwise could you help me with Stock Picks & the Kentucky Derby?

    I hope you're right but  the longer it drags on, the better for Obama, who is a better public speaker, therefore campaigner, than Romney, but his record will speak for itself. Romneys stiff, he'll need a strong running mate. Smarter minds than mine will decide, but Condoleezza Rice would be my pick, covers all the bases.. I agree and think now what I did then, not good Presidential material.

    I'll take you up on the Sox winning the World Series thoughTongue out

    I'm with you on Doubrount - I think he's a fifth starter at best, and not a good fit for the Sox.  But so far, he's had better results than Betances, who is only 5 months younger, and is making his third appearance on the BA top 100 list.  We hear the scouting report argument over and over - aren't you at least a little disappointed with the results of a much hyped farm system thus far?

    Marco Rubio will be his running mate, in a pathetic attempt to court Hispanic voters, swing Florida and appease the Tea Party.
