my life long team



  • well my life long team is doing well. - -As you know and as some so kindly like to ride me on them - -anyways main while back at the ranch The Yankees doing quite nicely thank you for asking lol. - - 25-10 tied with Boston going into tonight. I’m just really wondering actually how they are doing it with so many batting under 200 - or barely above 200.

    Pitching been good - -not dominant - - -Although we did juat get through holding the Astro’s scoreless for 23 innings. – that and DD has been outstanding. But Gardner is hitting 198 - - -Stanton like 225 and our Catcher hitting around 200 - - plus a couple more - guess I shpuldn’t be complaining though - -long season



  • @jayballer73

    Ya your right - -they NEVER will be the Royals - -thank GOD lol - - -right back at ya. - - In all seriousness I remember when the Royals and Yankees used to have some classic battles



  • I despise the Yankees. I used to not despise them, but ESPN has made me despise them. They’re the only reason ESPN talks about baseball is the yanks and red sux. ESPN has an article recently “Why a great yankee team is good for baseball”. Give me a break. The only thing good for baseball for me or for fans of the other 29 teams is for their team to win it all. How stupid. So I’m supposed to cheer for the Yankees because it’s good for baseball? What a joke.

    This doesn’t mean you can’t love the Yanks Jayballer! Doesn’t matter to me, I just am disgusted of the trajectory of my favorite sport being ruined by MLB, ESPN, and Fox.



  • @wissox hey it’s ok - - -haters gonna hate - - -I ain’t mad at ya. - -It’s kind of like College Basketball , how so many despise Duke - -Kentucky , successful programs - people just get tired of seeing the same teams succeed year after year after year - it’s ok - -but don’t hate the player - -hate the game . - -I can understand why your upset -I mean with the way the umm White Sox play, ya - kind of makes for a long summer huh? - -now just giving yo a little hard time , just playing - so don’t have a blowout - -people give me crap about the Yankees all the time - -I just keep pulling , rooting , for them while they keep on winning - -pretty simple.

    Not the Yankees fault they play in a major market-- - -have huge revenue and deep pockets - - - -if all the other major league teams had the same luxury , they ALL would be doing the same thing - - spending that money to get the best players - -it is what it is plain and simple.

    As far as ESPN - -psssssssssst ESPN how many here have told me shouldn’t get so concerned about what ESPN has to say - -ESPN is a joke - -ESPN is that East Coast Biased crap again - just like with College Basketball and Duke - -same goes for baseball and NY - -and Boston -and then the other Coast and the Dodgers.

    It’s ok you have every right to be upset - -PO’D - - that’s your right - -Me? - - I’ll just stay put and keep rooting win - -lose - -otherwise - -always have been a Yankee - - -always will be a Yankee - -and we do what we do–just keep right on winning - - -26 World Championships and more on the way - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer73

    Successful? Perhaps. Considering the insane amount of money they make and spend based only on location, you could say they have underachieved.

    LMAO - - -holy shit your are one funny person lmao - -underachieved? - -Underacheived? - -UNDERACHEIVED - -that has to be nominated for joke of the decade. - That’s hardly even worth responding to - -but yet I will’

    Like I said don’t be a hater - - If you can seriously sit and say that NO other major league franchise would as you so sweetly put it " spend the insane amount of money " - that statement just absolutely reeks of jealously lol. - Come on man - wake up -Man I really can’t believe you actually made that comment - -REALLY?

    Don’t be a hater just because they have that location - -not their problem - - They are VERY SUCESSFUL - - - - -VERY , VERY SUCESSFUL - thanks for mentioning. - -underachieved ?- - -26 world championships and under achieved? - remind me who is the next closest to them in Championships again? Total dominance .

    So again try and sit there and tell me that IF it any – any other team had the resources that they would not do exactly the same thing.- - I’d say your full of dog doo. - -You know - - I know - -Sister Sarah knows - - -Any and every team would do exactly the same thing , included people’s so called beloved Royals - - Atlanta would - - St Louis would - -Pittsburg would - -Oakland would - - you name a team - -any team and they would do exactly the same - – -don’t hate because they have the location- - the have the money - mercy you need to rest after a statement like that - -you mut have been in the heat to long lol - - - It’s ok - It’s all good cause your a KU fan - - so it’s all good . - -



  • @JayHawkFanToo is right @jayballer73 Yes underachieved. The Cubs, White Sox, Diamondbacks, Marlins, Royals, Astros, Angels, and Phillies have won as many world series since the turn of the century as the money laden, buy every big FA every year, on ESPN/FOX/MLBTV every night Yankees! That is underachieving. That team really should be winning about every three years or so with all their advantages!

    And PS, it’s always i before e except after C!



  • @wissox - - -lmao - - -have a great day and even better weekend lol



  • @jayballer73

    Being successful and underachieving are not necessarily mutually exclusive and a person does not have to be a hater to point it out. Sometimes you should consider that not everyone shares your likes/dislikes and just because some of us don’t share your opinion it does not make us wrong. Yes, the Yankees have won titles and have been successful but considering the money they have spent they have definitely underachieved. You should try being more open minded.



  • I’m glad the Yankees are good again. I love to hate them and it is only fun when they’re good.

    Aaron Judge is something else. Wow!

    And his Topps Heritage RC is amazing. If it doesn’t conjure up images of Mantle I doubt anything will.

    Eat your heart out @jayballer73



  • @JayHawkFanToo Open minded? --lol you wanna come at me about Open minded? - Again obviously you failed to read OR acknowledge the part where I said once again -IF it were possible that EVERY major league team would copy exactly the route that NY had done. - -read the entire context then respond ok?

    You can bullshit all you want but if it were possible ALL teams would do exactly THE SAME don’t even try to say different - -open YOUR mind



  • @JayHawkFanToo Just because I don’t share your opinion doesn’t make me wrong



  • @jayballer73 It’s no biggie. KU underperforms most years also. It just means expectations were high and you likely got to enjoy a great regular season.

    It does not make you right either, right?



  • @jayballer73

    Again, read my post. Your answer does show a lack of open mindedness which you obviously don’t see it. Let’s just agree to disagree and leave it at that.



  • @jayballer73 Nats and Yankees, two hottest teams in MLB. GO NATS!



  • @JayHawkFanToo Nor does it you right?



  • @jayballer73

    Again, read my post. I presented my opinion as that, an opinion and as such it’s not right or wrong since it is…again…an opinion; I did agree that he Yankees have been successful, I only added that they have also underachieved and @wissox also did. You presented your opinion as fact and refuse to even consider anything anyone else thinks; this is the text book definition of having a closed mind and further discussion is really moot.



  • @JayHawkFanToo OK , whatever you say all I know that it’s time to move on - not a time to see who gets to have the last word - - It’s getting boring need something fresh. I’ll just keep right on rooting for those quote " Under achievers -that just keep on winning "- -and you root for hmmmm well you root for hell I dunno root for something I guess - Time to move on
