A-Rod thinks he's going to the World Series...

I am sorry to say that the Yankees are going to struggle this year. Though it seems that they have made it hard for Red Sox fans this year it won't be enough to beat them...The Yankees have really not addressed losing their two best pitchers...A-Rod has brought unbelievable pressure onto himself going to New York and I believe this will spread onto his team-mates forcing them out in the 1st Round series at best...Sometimes its not always greener on the other pasture....Where's Ken Griffey?

I think 'struggle' is a horrible word choice. The Yankees will win at least 100 games, last time I checked, that ain't struggling. And they've still got one of the top 10 rotations in baseball.

AROD will get to the Series a helluva lot quicker with the yanks than with Texas, if they ever make it.

Speak more than just making comments about mine...At least I came out with it...on the record...The Yankees are going down...it will because of this deal....They didn't need A-Rod...NOW What!

What top 10 rotations....You've lost the Rocket and Pettite...and you've just got a couple of prospects and David Wells...How's that top 10? Top 10 last year....not now...Are they going to be able to get Maddox after this deal....Hell No!

Yeah, Mike Mussina is a piece of shit, isn't he? And read up your shit, David Wells is gone. Now, dipshit, if you tell me a rotation with a core of Mussina, Kevin Brown and Javier Vasquez can't compete, you don't know a fucking thing about baseball. Not to mention their bullpen got a helluva lot better.

Arod wasn't the jinx it was John Hart's sorriness, along with Hick changing team direction every 2 weeks that kept the Rangers in the gutter.

Trading arod for Soriano will give the Yanks a much better defensive infield. Sorinano is a butcher when it comes to fielding, and he may find a new home in the outfield this year.

For the record I am a Rangers fan.

I want the Yankees to Win it all! I hope they do to shut up idiots like you that don't know anything about baseball. Who is going to match up against them?

No one not your Rangers or even the Marlins. The Marlins didn't even close the deal with I-Rod this year.

I want Alex to Win the Series, so everyone can shut up about how much he is getting paid! He is worth every penny. Bottom line was that Hicks didn't want to spend money.

You want someone to blame HICKS and HART!

We're missing the point...its not who is going to get there quicker...its just that the Yankees were better off without A-Rod...

They should have let the Rangers sleep in the bed they made...I'm Pissed that the Rangers are getting off easy...

Stop being a dramatic, whiny little bitch. If you're going to voice a stupid, poorly formed statement, take your bashing like a man. If you don't know who's pitching for them, don't make stupid comments about them just having David Wells and some prospects. ALSO, if you weren't so concerned with your woe-is-me attitude, you would have read all this shit and noticed that I never said they were going to win the Series. I said they weren't going to struggle. Now, shove a large piece of cactus up your ass and suck dicks until you piss cum, you pussy ass little bitch.

Print what? The Red Sox can't do squat! They couldn't close many deals with some great players! You don't know crap about baseball...... if you where following baseball you would see that the Red Sox didn't have the resources or the money to offer big name players money!

Your just a hater! You hate the reason that A-Rod is calling his own game and get's what he wants. Same goes for the Yanks! You hate it that the rangers can't do what the yanks have done and they will never do what the Yanks have done......same goes for the red sox.

again money talks and that's what NY has and TEXAS doesn't ......!

So many fallacies, so little time... don't you think it's a stretch to say that the Red Sox don't have money or resources, when they have a payroll of over $120 million? The only other team above 100 mil are is the Yankees.

And honestly, the Red Sox/Rangers deal wasn't killed by a lack of money, it was because they kept setting 'deadlines' and restricting shit to the point the players union wouldn't agree to it. It just goes to show how fucked up the Rangers management is, getting Nomar would have been a 10x better deal than getting Soriano, who really doesn't have a position he plays well. He was slated to be the replacement for Bernie in NY, but even though he's a decade younger, and much faster, they couldn't afford to put him out there. Bernie should have been DHing the last 2 years, at least.

This is very true...

I can't believe I have a gay guy wanting to do things to me because I didn't know that David Wells was not a Yankee, and others believing that I'm hating on the Yankees...

My point was that A-Rod thinks that he's going to be handed a World Series Ring with this deal... Point being that you have to play the game on the field and not on paper... Does this mean that the Lakers are going to win the championship this year? Please tell me...Go On Record!!!

Hows that crying? Why do you want to say gay ass comments about growing balls? Just talk about the facts on baseball not gay ass comments to filter out your sexual aggressions...thank you

You have very strong arguements and you know your stuff but please no more gay comments of frustration...

I'm out.. I'm done... No more post whoring please unless its about this deal...

Don't sell Jose Contrera's short, he was 7-2 last year in 9 starts with a 3.3 era and averaged over a strikeout per inning. Not bad for his first year in the majors

Put him, Mussina and Brown together and you have a strong rotation. The rest of their pitchers are unproven but they still have Rivera and now Tom Gordon to help out if needed.

The Yankees are trying to do what the Rangers thought they could do: Get tons of hitting over pitching.

The Yankees will be lucky to win 100 games this year.

They've lost 3 of their main starting pitchers in Clemmons, Pettite, and Wells and will probably have to give up another in the A-Rod trade to make it worth the Rangers time/money.

Texas has noone anywhere near the caliber or Mussina, Brown or Contreras and hasn't had in the past 3 years. Kenny Rogers is the best pitcher they've had recently and the only one on their roster that might be able to win 10 games this year. The Yankees are not hurting for pitching by any means.

They've lost 3 of their main starting pitchers in Clemmons, Pettite, and Wells and will probably have to give up another in the A-Rod trade to make it worth the Rangers time/money.
The difference between the ranger teams of a few years ago and this current yankee team is that the yankees have a great defense, a good bullpen(with a top 5 closer), and a rotation that is easily in the top ten in the league.

The yankees might give up a decent single A or double A pitcher to go with Soriano. The rangers where going to get fucked on trading A Rod...but this is better than the offer we got from the Red Sox.

I have no respect for the Rangers after they tried to get Manny Ramirez for Arod, thats proof enough that they are morons. Well that and not signing John Thompson, resigning Pudge or Palmeiro.

What are they going to do next trade Blalock for Harold Baines? Oh wait he already retired, thank god I guess they could trade him for Mo Vaughn since they need a first baseman.

Well, considering that Mo Vaughn is done too! LOL!

Or they could bring in Charlie Huff as a closer!

Hough throws just as hard now as he did in the 80's.

I can throw harder than Hough, hell I can probably ride my bike faster than he pitched. We had a knuckle ball pitcher in high school and man it sucked trying to hit those, that and he would follow it up with a 93 mph fastball.

you said "A-Rod thinks, " you sir have no idea what A-Rod, thinks!
People disagree with your opinion because you do not have all the facts.
Do you really believe the Yankees won't be one of the best teams in baseball?
"Big George" has the dinero to make major deals. They still have a good
to better than average pitching staff. They probably have the best
closer in baseball & they will score runs.
If not for a complete disaster, Yanks win it all!
By the way, I don't like baseball but let's be real.

Well you have a point with money, but you don't know what A-rod thinks as well... Facts? What I assumed they still had David Wells and I don't have Facts? Please, So did George's "dinero" help them this year, or last year before that? No it didn't...I remember several years ago, when Baltimore did the same thing with getting all these big time all-stars...It never panned gold...So money doesn't always get you over the top... It just gets you in the vacinity...
