Comments on: New York Yankees: What is wrong with the farm system? Baseball from a lady's perspective. Sun, 21 Dec 2014 16:37:05 +0000 hourly 1 By: LLP Sat, 02 Mar 2013 06:34:00 +0000 CNY – This season is not the same as last season. The Yankees took a step backward especially regarding letting Martin walk and Soriano go too. Other teams got significantly better, and while Toronto will need some time to adjust, it will happen so eventually. This means the Yankees have to win in April and take advantage before teams like the Blue Jays and Dodgers start rolling. Also, the Angels are stacked; Tigers added Hunter and get Victor Martinez’s bat back; Orioles get Nick Markakis etc. It will tough for the Yankees to make the playoffs this seaosn.

And FYI I predicted the Yankees to make the playoffs in 2012… are links to prove this.

By: coolnewyorker Thu, 28 Feb 2013 06:19:57 +0000 Your October meltdown prediction which you wrote a month in advance during a most thrilling pennant drive was that the Yanks will not make it to the playoffs. And of course, as ALWAYS you were WRONG. Not only did they make it but they won the division title….something you were sure they had absolutely no chance …with all those veterans you called "washed up".

And as always, you do not learn…betting against the Yanks this year- in February. My goodness.

Kate…you should be kinder to yourself. You gotta think more than twice first before you hit the keyboard. YB readers might think you are retarded.

By: coolnewyorker Tue, 26 Feb 2013 06:11:58 +0000 You gave up on the Yanks in August predicting October meltdown. You were wrong viciously bashing Hughes early and just as wrong unabashedly gushing over A-Rod late in the season and blaming the fans for Burnett's breakdown. You were wrong on Cashman's "brain-fart" trades and absolutely wrong again on the
"washed up" veterans.

You were ALWAYS WRONG. You were wrong in dragging down YB reading yankees fans with your antagonism and doomsayings all season long. And in the heat of the pennant drive you were sticking out as a totally dampering party pooper.

In February 2013, you are already betting against the Yanks.

And you have the nerve to call yourself a pinstripes lover. Hah!

Go pal up with Youk. You are both Red Sox in pinstripes camouflage. At least Youk is disarmingly honest about it. You are just dishonestly disarming with your uncategorized STATs and quotes… and pretenses.

By: LLP Tue, 26 Feb 2013 02:27:26 +0000 CNY – I am just being honest and my opinion is not offbase. Last season I predicted the Yankees to win the AL East, but not the World Series. This off season I am afraid that the team took a step back, while too many other rival clubs got much better. That is not a good formula for winning.

I was one of a few who loved the Soriano signing back in 2011 and he saved the season last year.

I am not always correct but I do write what I feel at the moment. And if I recall you agreed with me a few times last year…..?!?!

By: LLP Tue, 26 Feb 2013 02:22:45 +0000 How were you so right? Have the Yankees won 90+ games yet this season? No, so please explain how I was wrong?
