[quote]ok, lemme go through this again cause yer dense bias has desensitized u...<hr></blockquote>
MY dense bias!? LOL. you're the one with apparant personal problems with the Yankees.
[quote] to how dominant they weren't. get it??? they WERE NOT dominant--u missed my point yet again...<hr></blockquote>
no, got that right. their offense sucked. their core club got too old and forgot how to hit. it didn't help that
1.) they couldn't hit
2.) they faced the toughest pitching they have in 2 series this year than they did since the 96 braves.
knoblach (sp?)--he was a big name player--i remember how when the yanks got him, everyone was saying that the yanks were gonna dominate even more. just cause he sucks now doesnt mean that he wasnt good at one point.
el duque--a very good pitcher a few years ago. u remember that?? apparently not, cause yet again u only address how things are now...im looking at the big picture here, not a one-dimensional view that u seem to be stuck in...
williams--yes, and i never said he wasnt from the farm. but yet again, they have that money to throw around to keep the big names, which most other teams cant even think of doing.
justice--again another big name when he came to NY, but apparently u seem stuck and wont even consider that he was a big name...
o'neill--well when u have so many big players on one team, some people are gonna be overshadowed, even though theyd be one of the big names on most other teams...<hr></blockquote>
I guess we just disagree with what classifies a "bigname" player. Bigname player in my book is like I said, a player who's jersey is worn by kids our of the team's area. ie: Jeter, Griffey Jr., Bonds, McGwire, Ichiro, Sosa, Garciaparra, Johnson, Clemens, P. Martinez, etc. the Yankees don't have many of those kind of players besides Jeter, Williams, and Clemens. do you not agree?
el duque definitely IS NOT classified a bigname player. you may have a case with the other ones based on what you think a bigname player is but el Duque was never more than a number 3-4 starter and on most other teams wouldn't be higher than that either.
tell me something--how many teams have as many quality starting pitchers as the yanks??? i can only think of one--the As...
the difference is that the yanks bought all of theirs...<hr></blockquote>
the Yankees bought Pettite and the scrubs who filled in the "5 role all year? the Yankees went and TRADED for Clemens. They "bought" Mussina.
and do you not know of the Mariners and Braves for stellar pitching staffs?
dont call me dumb til u actually have some points that show that u have some bit of intelligence to back up yer bias-based shallow arguments.<hr></blockquote>
you're not dumb, you have some serious problems.
oh yeah, just cause yer spoiled over there doesnt mean that every other team can buy anyone for any price. over here in houston, we have these things called limits--which means that we work w/ what we have...we cant sign all of our freeagents, cause we cant afford to...so some leave. the yanks can sign anyone they want.<hr></blockquote>
Houston's owner is the cause for that. it's all a matter of how much profits the owner wants. Houston has over 3,000,000 attendance every year. don't tell me you can't spend the same. that's BS. they choose not to.
[quote]so dont compare other teams to yer yanks, cause we dont have the cash to do whatever we want. if we have a hole in our lineup, we go as low as AA to find someone, anyone to help out. we dont just automatically run around and shop fer someone to take his place. did u know that our starting rotation last season was made up of 4 AA and AAA minor leaguers going into the post season?? and yet still managed the best record in baseball...<hr></blockquote>
great, that's not at all bias
