    It's amazing isn't it?


     


    When Cashman didn't tender him he said it was because Aceves is a problem in the clubhouse and that he has connection to the Mexican gangs.


    Now, that Cashman is soo desperate for relievers, he loosens up his ethics and morals and signs him.


    Yankees will do ANYTHING to win - ANY THING


    Pathetic hypocrits.

    That's bull. The Yankees had zero behavior or locker room issues with Aceves.


    He had back problems for what was diagnosed as a dislocated disk the last two seasons with the Yankees and then finally had to be shut down because of it.


    The Yankees wanted Aceves to have surgery during the off-season Aceves did not. Then he hurt his shoulder in a bicycle accident. He rehabbed his back in the off season


    The Yankees offered him a minor league contract to return, he accepted the ML contract the Red Sox offered him instead.


    He looked like the Ace of old today.

    He got on the wrong side in Boston, misused by Bobby V.. If he's recovered he has good stuff and a rubber arm.

    You know, I have not posted in just short of a year, but Mitch has not changed, a master of hyperbole.  


     


    I agree with you on most points in your response except to specify that Aceves broke his collarbone in the bicycle accident.  The Yankees offered Aceves a minor league contract, after going 14-1 for the Yankees with a 3.21 ERA and a WHIP of 1.06 in his career for them.  Aceves asked for a major league contract, and he should have gotten it.  Aceves was a wonderful spot starter, reliever, set-up man, and the occasional closer.  He can get a strike out or a ground ball coming in with men on base.  


    Today, it was vintage Aceves:  5.3 innings pitched, 3 hits, 0 runs, 0 earned runs, 0 BB, and 5 strikeouts.

    All kidding aside, the guy can pitch. He has a live arm. He does have some " issues " . The question is: Can he put that aside and concentrate on his pitching?  If he can do that, he can be a good addition. If he can't , he can be a problem. This could be his last chance.

    Last Chance?  As long as the yankees are around you can get as many chances as you need.  Esp if Cashman is the GM.  That guy sucks up scrubs like Tony Montana sucks up yayo.

    Reported. Again.  If you had any intelligence or decency in you you'd be ashamed.  But you don't, so you're not.


    "Why is this ignorant racist allowed to remain here? In his world, all Mexicans are border jumping trash, Chris Capuano and all Italian Americans are mafia offspring, all Dominicans are juicers lying about their age, ad nauseum. But he has the nerve to complain because many/most of the largely decent posters here give him a really hard time!


    I think Bogey was put in the penalty box recently for what was considered to be too many gratuitous insults...mostly toward this racist fool, I imagine. But how can one justify punishing goofy, silly insults while tolerating a tsunami of racist bile?"

        "misused by Bobby V."


              Here you go again.


              Leaving off the real reason Boston cut him loose.


              ST the next season he refused to do what Farrell wanted.


              Do you have to sugar coat everything in favor of yankee players? Really?

    He was abused by Valentine! and he wasn't going to take it anymore.


    He was a talent for the Sox when he came on board after the Yankees let him go.


    There was an option for him: does he  start, close, middle relief. The coaching staff didn't know how to handle him.


    He was definitely a misunderstood guy--the one thing he has is a great arm. He threw 5 + inn. yesterday he could come back and do 3 today and 4 tomorrow. He is a guy that can save a pen.

    Actually the coaching staff did know how to handle him.  They handled him in the best interest of the team.

    It worked out fine unless you're a guy who wants the inmates running the asylum.  


    A team can't have anyone running around second-guessing management.  Everyone has to understand his role, much like everyone did in 2013, and AA didn't understand (or accept) the fact that his role on the team was to do whatever was asked of him.  


    I liked what he did and I think there is a role for him on just about any team, including the Yankees, but as with every other player, AA can't be dictating what that role will be.
