    Off Season Thread aka The Party is over

    Well. That sucked. But I doubt many are surprised. This should have adopted the motto, "we will fall short"

    We have a bit over 5 months to start ST.

    I will of course take this opportunity to say congratulations to the vast majority of you who said the Yankees would not win the WS or even get there

    I believe Posada was the only one who predicted a WS victory for the Yankees. So he clearly lost, while the rest of us were accurate.
    Great job to those with some BB knowledge and insight

    Man, I never felt this team, this season. I may have watched two games this season. Go Knicks.

    I made that prediction because I bought into some of the crap you and some others were spouting . You know how you guys felt the division was gonna be fairly easy and that the yanks were the best in the AL despite doing NOTHING to improve their team from the previous year .

    You are hysterical. You are so wrong all the time. It's compelling to watch you step in pile after pile, stink of excrement and say that it's someone else's fault you walked there.

    FYI, math man, what is the percentage difference in predicting 93 wins (which was over, so you lost) and 100 wins? I will give you a hint. It's not that big. ( I know you've heard that before. I'd say more than you can count but you can't count and I highly doubt you've had change to hear it more than once)

    Tallion was a big contributor German was going to be one till injured. Sevy couldn't get on the field. What you fail to understand is that when speaking of Sevy, the word "if" was continually used.
    Regarding German, he was contributing for his first 18 games. He would have continued to contribute had He not been injured.


    You like to talk after the fact like you know something, when you don't. None of your predictions were correct.
    None. Zero. Zilch. Nada.

    I was wrong, wow. Yet, you're still trying to brag about being wrong also. Close doesn't count in baseball or didn't you figure that out last night.

    We missed the real playoffs, season wasn't a good one for the MLB club. Last i checked Taillon gave us 135 IN plus, coming off of 2yrs of having not pitched and the injury wasn't with the arm and he missed less time this yr than any other starter. You and i obviously see his contribution differently.

    If you remember i said German was going to be an improvement over what we behind Cole last yr. Our staff overall was much better than it was last yr, German was apart of that.

    You are correct about Sevy though, I thought he would have been able to come back much sooner. Not getting him back as a starter in the 2nd half hurt. Once he got back he was good but to little to late.

    I was overly optimistic, The Soxs, Rays and Jays proved to be much tougher than i thought they were going to be.

    No one got it all right, period

    Guy never takes blame for his own faults. Always blames others. Plays victim. Whataboutism. Rinse and repeat.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    Exactly who thought the division was going to be easy? Once again, you lie, lie, lie
    That is exactly why I didn't think the Yankees would win a WC. I stated at the years beginning that the Rays, Sox would be tough and that the Jays had improved and were a young, bunch of hitters.

    So not only do you lie but you blame your prediction on the rest off us?





    That is epic. All of us, who the en tire season were saying we didn't thin k the team or manager was good enough to win it all, convinced you to throw out your prediction of a WS? You read into our apprehension about the team as encouragement for you to make that wager?




    Holy crap. How weak can you be? You blame others for everything. So sad but still so funnyy

    You are the damned liar because on the yankees win total thread you said the yanks would win 101 games and said they had a good chance to win the ws this year . you also said that the jays and rays would be good , you didnít sa they would be tough . And you said the Red Sox would be solid but interestingly enough after I said the same thing
