Mr. Girardi

Reportedly the Yanks have offered former Yankee Joe Girardi the job as manager for 3 years, $6 million. In his 1 year as manager with the Florida Marlins he won NL Manager of the Year for going 78-84 with a young team. Bear in mind this supposedly crappy young team had great talent like Miguel Cabrera, Hanley Ramirez, Dan Uggla and Josh Willingham, along with solid pitching led by Dontrelle Willis and a bullpen headed by Joltin' Joe Borowski and Matt Herges. But still, since they didn't suck, Girardi was rewarded with Manager of the Year and is considered to have a tremendous experience edge over the guy I wanted the job to be given to, Don Mattingly.

1st of all, it seems that Mattingly will now leave the organization to either go back home to Indiana, or join Torre if he takes another job (maybe in LA). Plus, I don't know how guys like Posada/Jeter/Pettitte/Mo feel about having to answer to one of their ex-teammates. But Girardi did always strike me and many others as a good "manager-type" when he was a player, so I guess I'm fine with this.

We'll need a new bench coach now, I can see Pena being there, and then getting whomever at first. Or maybe bring back Buck Showalter and have him on the bench while he waits to get another managerial offer.

As for how we're gonna replace Purple-Lips, a Betemit-Morgan Ensberg platoon would be fine with me, of course that involves getting Ensberg, which shouldn't be too tough. Vechionacci's only gonna be starting the season in AA next year, so while he may be ready in 2009, I highly doubt he'll do anything more for the Yankees than a key stolen base during spring training. (Then again, the best candidate for the job probably will want to rest up with Carrie after winning the Super Bowl. I of course refer to ROMO.) Either way, anyone who thinks we're in a state of upheaval, and that without A-Rod and Torre we're a rebuilding team that will miss the playoffs next season is a complete tard.

By the way, I love how the 5 biggest stories in sports right now are 1. A-Rod 2. Pats-Colts 3. Girardi 4. NFL Recap 5. Oh yeah, the Red Sox, that also happened last night. Always great when the Yankees completely upstage everything else. Selig must be thrilled.

Goodbye Purple-Lips

As you all know there was some huge baseball news tonight. Alex Rodriguez, who from here on will once again be referred to as Gay-Rod and/or Ass-Rod, decided to opt out of his ridiculously massive contract.

What a dumbass.

We were going to give you an extension. Is a 5 year, 140 million dollar extension really not good enough? All you had to do was win a ring, or another MVP or 2, and you'd have millions of fans for life, probably get your number retired, and best of all, your very own Yankeeography, besides for an insane amount of money. Instead, you opt out. Brian Cashman already made it quite clear that if you opted out we weren't going to get into a bidding war for you. You really think you're gonna get more money without us involved?

And then the reason your agent gives for your decision. You didn't want to make any decisions until you knew what we were doing about Mo, Posada, and Pettitte. Um, Gay-Rod, opting out is a decision. Pretty big one at that considering it means your potentially illustrious Yankee tenure is done.

Whatever dude, you could've had everyone hate you except for us, the biggest, most rabid fanbase on the planet. Now, we hate you too. Bite me Gay-Rod.

As for the future 3B of the Yankees. I'd give up Ian Kennedy/Alan Horne for Miguel Cabrera but the Marlins will probably only take Hughes or Joba who are absolutely untouchable. Mike Lowell's a free agent, wouldn't mind him. JB Smoove's really funny, don't know if he can play third though. We do have Betemit, and Giambi did start his career as a third baseman (joke, although it would be really funny to see him try to play third at this stage), but as long as we've got the Captain, it's all good.

Good stuff from Buster Olney on this too.

(This of course assumes we don't cave in and go after A-Rod, which would go against everything we've been saying all season and would really piss me off.)

Oh, and do me a favor, click on the ad on top of each new post, because I think I get money and stuff if you do. (Cue the Beavis and Butthead sound effects right here.)

What the shuffle decided I should listen to: Had it off, but my roommate's fan was a decent soundtrack.

Congratulations Boston, we'll get you next year.

A valid reason not to blog until Wednesday

Go to, click listen now, and tomorrow at 8 you'll hear my show. So why blog now when I can just talk tomorrow night? Call in, as there is a decent chance we'll be bringing back Rosie Jeopardy.

A link to hold you over until I actually post something worthwhile

This is the funniest thing going on the internet right now. If you've never seen or heard of the blog, definitely worth playing around with the rest of the site also, but the funniest thing is this.

Finally, a post.

So I created this blog after the Captain Jeter Christ was robbed of the AL MVP last season, but shockingly, in a fit of tremendous laziness, I never posted anything. Now, almost 1 year later, and less than 24 hours after another miserable October loss, I have the proper rage needed to blog. But the wound is too deep to put that rage into any meaningful words about that yet, so instead, a brief introduction to this thing for today, for anyone who's reading this that doesn't know me (not sure why you're reading this, or how you even found this thing, but it's all good).

Will Dachs ever notice this post was hijacked? Will he ever look at his first post to see how simple things used to be? The kid ain't so dangerous now is he. End of hijack.- Wet Bandits

I'm getting tired of writing this thing and I have to study for a mid-term so let's do the rest of this quick:

What I love: Yankees, Knicks, Cowboys, Rangers, Jeter, Romo, Starks, Messier, SNL, The Wonder Years, Britney (c'mon, I was hitting puberty when she was dancing in schoolgirl uniforms and red catsuits, there's almost nothing she can do to herself that would render her undoable), the '90s, Beavis and Butthead, Seinfeld, Curb, South Park, The Office, alot more TV shows/movies that will undoubtedly be randomly referenced, the immortal Kige Ramsey.

What I hate: Red Sox, "New York" Football Giants (hey, remember when Chris Berman wasn't annoying? good times), Eagles, Redskins, Devils, the Icelanders (there's that shout out you asked for Steve Sommers), and terrorists (I know, really going out on a limb there).

Of course I left out alot of stuff, and there's alot in between the love and the hate, but I'm sure that'll come out soon enough. I'm not telling too many people about this, so maybe only 5 people will ever read this, but it's all good. If it takes time away from studying, it can't be that bad. And who knows, maybe I'll get linked to on Deadspin before I get tired of doing this.

What the shuffle decided I should listen to while posting this: Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song, Eminem- The Way I Am. Jimi Hendrix- Foxy Lady.(Yeah baby, 1st running feature of the blog, you all are loving that inside information.)
