    Actually, Derek (262) Jeter isn`t smiling lately... and I don`t
    blame (262) him.

    [QUOTE]Rafael Sorriano, Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada anyone ? The Yanks are currently paying more than triple market value for their players. Jorge Posada isn`t hitting like a real DH right now... Jorge Posada is hitting like a DA (Designated for assignment). Derek Jeter is currently suffering from ARS (Age-Related Slump). Mark Teixeira is finally establishing himself as a .250 hitter. A.J.Burnett is probaly a good five innings pitcher. Mariano Rivera isn`t pitching like the old Mariano... and to make worse, Mariano has more miles in his gas mileage than an old Ford Pickup truck. A-Rod the highest paid player in baseball is off to a good start, but his age and hip issue may turns this smoking gun into a water pistol. And the Yanks Nation is already felling very sorry for the costly acquisiton of Rafael Sorriano. The Yanks are paying million and million of dollars for these atletes, and they are getting small returns for their huge investment. The Yanks are a good team, but the price is too high... their price is even higher than the Empire State Building On the hand, The Red Sox are also paying top dollars to their players, but they may get better returns for their money than the Yanks. Carl Crawford and J.D Drew are the only players on Sox roster that are not earning their money right now. But the good news is that Crawford is still very young and J.D Drew is playing his last year in Boston. Also the Red Sox have the best defenseve & SP rotation in baseball. The Red Sox are young and exciting. In term of long term investment, Theo Epstein will get better returns from his investment. The facts are there.

    [QUOTE]Nice intelligent respone from Mikey Boy- Blah, Blah, Blah. The fact that his Yanks won 12-3 is secondary to him. He is full of so much hate that he comes to this forum and do his thing. My guess is that he is also Babe. Yet Jessey and Pinstripezac are enablers of this complete idiot. Perhaps not enablers but alias's. Might be only one person. -- sunslav ------------------------------------------- You couldn't pay me enough to go to a Yankee board and spend my time reading what Yankee fans have to say -- about the Yankees or the Red Sox. I couldn't care less. How no one ever mentions the obvious Yankee aliases on this board is hilarious.  It never comes up.

    You keep saying this but you never reveal who they are. Why is that? There is a monkey around here alright. Can you guess who?

    Hey Sun - who do you want Zac, Jete and myself to call out? Babe - Done it! Mikey? I tell him to leave it alone, he doesn't want to. What exactly would you like us to do?

    A silly OP.  Who cares what the Yankees spend on players?  Give them credit for trying to get good players.  Right now they are leading the AL East.

    logic and adult reasoning don't work with Mr. Beni.......here are the rules

    redsox players are good even when performing bad, they will definately improve.

    yankees players are bad, they will never improve.

    Re: Yanks Are Paying More than Triple Market Value For their Players- Sox Getting Better Value

    Fans, media on verge of mutiny against New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter


    While www.nydailynews.com/topics/YES+Network" title="YES Network">YES analysts www.nydailynews.com/topics/Paul+O'Neill+(Baseball)" title="Paul O'Neill (Baseball)">Paul O'Neill and www.nydailynews.com/topics/John+Flaherty" title="John Flaherty">John Flaherty acknowledged and discussed Jeter's hitting problems, they only walked to the edge of the cliff. They didn't attempt to look ahead and talk about what Girardi's options are if Jeter stays in a funk. They didn't speculate on what the overall affect would be on the team.


    Especially if Jeter, the "icon," stays stubborn and protests any demotion.


    But O'Neill was most effective when he tried to explain what Jeter is going through. "It does become frustrating for a player when every day you hear about your age and that you're slowing down," O'Neill said Saturday with
    Jeter up and the bases loaded. "You start getting it in the back of your mind and you're trying to prove people wrong instead of just going out and playing."


    There may come a time, and it may be soon, where the media's role in this becomes a major issue. That's exactly where O'Neill was going when he said it becomes "frustrating" when you are constantly reminded you are on the downside.


    Will this get to Jeter? Or will he remain, like always, calm and in control. Jeter may be subjected to the most intense media scrutiny, and negativity, that he's ever faced. And if YES decides to air his postgame media sessions, even more fans will be focused on him to see how he reacts. On Saturday and Sunday, Jeter didn't appear on the postgame show.


    Curry interviewed Jeter, off camera, before Sunday's game. He said Jeter told him he doesn't believe he's struggling. "He's a guy who has as much confidence as anyone who goes out there for the Yankees," Curry said in the third inning Sunday.


    Unfortunately, all that confidence won't help Jeter answer questions from his ever-growing number of critics.

    And yet, the Yankees are 17-9, in 1st place. One of the reasons is Jeter's defense, which, despite postage stamp range, is reliable, as is everyone else at practically every position. Who would have thought it.

    The basic reason is the Yankee propensity to hit home runs with men on base. Jeter's defense is mediocre and not expected especially for someone earning that much money. Jeter's dismal performance would be center stage if the Yanks didn't have the 17-9 record.
