    I agree with the way fans treat Torre. Every manager makes mistakes and Sterinbrenner isnt the easiest person to work for. If Damon is healthy hes worth it. Giambi hasnt been for the most part. If Abreu is hot, hes amazing, if hes slumping hes terrible. A-rod, hes having an amazing year. its not like hes not worth the money. But you are wrong with developing players within the Yanks organization. Hughes, Kennedy, Joba, those are the big three pitchers. Then you have Cano, Melky, Duncan for the big hitters.Then we have more coming who will grow and hopefully become better. Edwar, Versas, maybe Karstens. So the Yanks have made major improvement with the minor leaguers and getting younger...

    I'm glad they have actually been developing players, but the four I named that he went out and bought, leave such a bad taste that until they're gone from the Yankees I still won't have as much respect for the team as I do the Rockies and D'backs whose payrolls are nearly 1/4 of the Yankees. Also I wasn't saying they weren't worth it or questioning their performances I was just providing examples of bought talent, and I just remembered that he went out and bought Clemens out of the retirement home, and that was by far the worst bang for his buck.

    I think it was fate that Clemens got hurt. not to be mean, but who knows if Clemens would have kept us in the game. At that point it was 2-0 and runner on 2nd or 1st.. So if he kept on pitching who knows how they would have done. Hughes was amazing. Couldnt have asked for anything better!!

    Clemens needs to stay retired, and possibly commentate, I value the guy's opinion and insight on the game, but he, unfortunately is done with baseball, just doesn't have it anymore. Hughes gave up the one run, that Clemens had left on, but besides that he did pitch very well.

    As for right now, the game isn't looking too good for the Yankees, down 4-1 in the 4th.

    Game 1 - D'backs 3 / Cubs 1
    Game 2 - D'backs 8 / Cubs 4
    Game 3 - D'backs 5 / Cubs 1

    Indians/Yankees series: Indians win series
    Game 1 - Indians 12 / Yankees 3
    Game 2 - Indians 2 / Yankees 1
    Game 3 - Yankees 8 / Indians 4
    Game 4 - Indians 6 / Yankees 4

    Red Sox/Angels series: Red Sox win series
    Game 1 - Red Sox 4 / Angels 0
    Game 2 - Red Sox 6 / Angels 3
    Game 3 - Red Sox 9 / Angels 1

    Sorry if I jacked your thread, I just like spelling it out when I post, because I know I don't usually go back to the first page of the thread after it gets a few pages long, and I wanted to make the info accessible to those like me.
