    OK that works...everyone say Hi to Chazzzzzzzzzz




    that  annoying troll is already whinning about the yankees schedule.


    paranoia is hitting.


    We are in last place, do i need to say more?

    Besides, If the Sox win their games then there is nothing to worry about.

    This is how you can tell when someone is a bandwagon fan...for the simple matter that he has NO CONFIDENCE in his own team being able to win games.

    If They are the "best team in baseaball" then they shouldnt have any problems beating the rest of the league.

Some of our memories are not as good as they used to be. LOL........and I hate not having the ignore feature. Is someone keeping a list of hates?

    the threads i have replied to are out dated, by that i mean that when im the last person replying to, the thread says that the LAST PERSON who posted was the person before the last....as long as the last person is not me

    In other words

    "name1"  followed by "name2"  followed by "me (victory"


    So "name1" gets the "LAST POST BY"   title


    it ignores the last 2 posters.

    If anybody was wondering what the guys who oversaw the Big Dig project have been doing since that was finally completed, I think we have our answer.  They moved on to the redesign of the BDC message boards.

    Its a great way to save in bandwith and capacity.

    At least they have me doing other things here at work....if this is the setup that we have to endure then you wont see me posting as much either.

    Good luck all, im kinda tired of going back and forth just to check who was the last poster and catch up to a convo....

    Whats the purpose of making a site load faster if you have to click on 10 different links to get to your final destination?

    Nope. I was just trying to get my work done before I tried wrestling with this. Believe it or not, but I actually do work in between chatting with you people and it just wasn't working out this morning.

    I'm done for the day now though so let's see if this just takes some getting used to...or if it really does suk as much as I think it does.

    This is impressive
    Red Sox named 2008 Professional Sports Team of the Year

    A little early in the year to be handing out awards like this, but reading the article, it seems that it's based on overall achievement and current success.

    I also found this on Joba from the Post and have to agree that how he handles the pressure of being starter will be interesting. Pressure doesn't seem to bother him much, but this is a different kind....

    Don't start that Joba

    Joba Chamberlain has come a long way since the Joba Rules, but that doesn't mean the Yankees expect him to rule their starting rotation - at least not yet. Some of his teammates believe that kind of pressure isn't going to be helpful.

    List of complaints.


    1.  No ignore feature.


    2.   When you click on the thread it goes to the  1st page rather then where you left off, leaving you to figure out which ones you have read or haven't read if you can't remember what page you left off on.


    3.  When you post to another poster  and hit submit it takes you to the end of the  thread  rather when  the last post  you read and responded to.


    4.  No different colors to post  with.


    5.  No flags to know where you have posted.


    Anyone have any others to add to that? That is just my pet peeves.

    That's whacked out. It Didn't work again.

    To h.ell with it...here's the whole story

    Joba Chamberlain may start Monday, but he won't be 'savior'

    Joba Chamberlain has come a long way since the Joba Rules, but that doesn't mean the Yankees expect him to rule their starting rotation - at least not yet.

    As the expectations for the 22-year-old flamethrower approach messianic proportions, some of his teammates believe that kind of pressure isn't going to be helpful to Chamberlain as he makes the transition from reliever to starter.

    "We cannot see Joba as our savior," Mariano Rivera said. "He's still a rookie who hasn't been in the league for more than a few months."

    Chamberlain could make his first start as soon as Monday, although the Yankees have not revealed their plans. To think that he is going to enter the rotation and lead the Yankees to the promised land right away is being extremely optimistic - especially when you consider the disastrous seasons that fellow young hurlers Phil Hughes and Ian Kennedy have endured.

    Their cautionary tales should be enough to temper expectations for Chamberlain, who made a grand total of 15 career starts in the minor leagues before being promoted and starring as an eighth-inning bridge to Rivera.

    Hughes was 0-4 with a 9.00 ERA in six starts before landing on the disabled list with a fractured rib, while Kennedy - who was sent down to the minors at one point - was 0-3 with a 7.41 ERA in nine games (eight starts) before being placed on the DL this week with bursitis and a strained muscle under his arm.

    "The worst-case scenario would have been if they both needed elbow surgery," Mike Mussina said. "But to have both of them struggle, to have both of them now injured on June 1, that's a challenging problem to overcome."

    The Yankees entered the season expecting Hughes and Kennedy to thrive at the bottom of the rotation, following up their solid performances last season. But things didn't go well for the pair, as Hughes gave up 34 hits in 22 innings and Kennedy nibbled around the strike zone, walking 25 batters in 37-2/3 innings.

    "I saw these kids last year, and they were different pitchers," Rivera said. "They came in and challenged hitters, and that wasn't the same this year. I don't know why, but they were totally different pitchers that I saw."

    Neither Hughes nor Kennedy would ever admit it, but the pressure of high expectations may have played a part in their struggles. Last year, Hughes was summoned from the minors to fill in after Mussina and Carl Pavano were placed on the DL. Kennedy was handed the ball as a September call-up, and although the Yankees were fighting for a postseason spot, the expectations for the former USC star were relatively mild.

    "When you put two of them in there, you hope one of them does okay," Mussina said. "There have been young pitchers that have come in, dazzled and been great, but it would be hard to expect those two guys come in and have both of them be major-league ready for a long haul immediately."

    Growing pains are one thing, but to have zero wins between them, a trip to the minors for Kennedy and both pitchers on the DL before the first two months of the season have expired was not what the Yanks had in mind.

    "I didn't even think about that scenario," Johnny Damon said. "Going into June, you figured they would have five or six wins, but nothing has gone the way we would have liked it to go so far."

    Said Derek Jeter: "I don't care who you are, you're going to scuffle at some point. That's just how it goes."

    Ever the optimist, Jeter looks at the situation with Hughes and Kennedy and points to the fact that the Yankees could be a lot further behind the first-place Rays than they are.

    After all, one year ago today the Bombers woke up with a 21-29 record and and trailed the first-place Red Sox by 14-1/2 games.

    "It could be a whole lot worse," Jeter said of the Yanks' 26-27 start. "It hasn't gone the way we'd have liked it to go, but we have a lot of time left. Hopefully at the end of the season, we can look back at it and say the kids learned from it. You learn from adversity."

    What can be learned from Hughes and Kennedy's rocky starts? For one thing, don't expect Chamberlain to take the mound next week and become the new ace of the staff.

    For every Justin Verlander, there are a dozen overhyped rookies who failed to live up to expectations in their first season as starters. To Mussina, expecting Chamberlain to become a No.1 starter out of the gate is unfair.

    "I know people are assuming that he'll do for seven innings what he's been doing for one, but that's asking a bit much," Mussina said. "He got very good at what he was doing in the eighth inning, and now he's going to go out there and learn to do something else. I assume, over time, he'll be very good at that, too. It's just going to take some experience."

    I think most yankee fans will be more cautious now, after what they saw Hughes and Kennedy do. Like Mo said....they were completely different pitchers this year then last year and it probably did have to do with expectations. Joba won't be Joba of the 8th inning as a starter. But if he does better then Kennedy or Hughes did, at this point that would be a plus.
