In Response to Re: Injuries continue to slam Yankees
[QUOTE]I am no lover of the Yankees but they are getting real old fast. Jeter plays a demanding position at his age as well as ARod starting to break down from the steroids. They are asking a lot of Mariano at his age. Sabathia has an eating disorder that saw him weaken down the stretch. I am wondering if this is the year their ages all catch up with them.

Good analysis, however we all know they will win 100+ games, win the ALE then lose in the playoffs. Then next year only Mariano will be gone, ARod, Jeter and CC will all be back and the Yankees will win 100+ games again, win the ALE then lose in the playoffs, then the next year......well you see where this is going. Meanwhile back at Fenway, we win 86-95 games and finish no better than 3rd for years to come. During that time we lose Ells via FA, Youk to injuries, Ortiz to retirement, continue to season Iggy at AAA until 2019, continue to try and find a RF, continue to have CC playing left when not injured hitting .250, batting 9th with an On Base % of around .260, Lackey returns and loses 20 games for three years in a row, Beckett gets traded for a bag of balls, Buchholz' back goes out and his career ends early, Lester continues to decline to the point winning 10 games a year is a success, Bobby V and BC end up in several fist fights in the Red Sox offices and in the dugout with Bobby V completely dominating BC everytime, Beer and Chicken are reintroduced and allowed into the clubhouse and the only players not in the clubhouse drunk, eating chicken and playing video games are the Manager, the current batter and or baserunners and the on-deck hitter, the BDC RSN On the front burner evolves by late 2014 into two sects, the Athletes and Religion forum run by DavetheKnave that wins several literary awards for excellence in Religious Study and the New York Yankee forum run by a committee of Trolls, all other posters have long been banned by the BDC Moderators who are run by the Trolls. As a side bar, one other branch of the BDC RSN On the front burner starts late in 2012 but ends by mid-2013 because the only poster allowed is Pike and his 17 screen names, he finally gets bored talking to himself and admits himself to the New York Psychiatric Institute on Riverside Drive where he remains for the rest of his life battling multiple personality disorder.
Finally in 2025, the Yankees ARod, Jeter and CC retire........and win 100+ games, the ALE and lose in the first round of the playoffs
