-good job RSox ;)-

I agree.  Dropping 2 out of 3 to the Yankees is always most welcome.

You're not so bad, Slothus.  I don't care what they say.

If you don't mind me interrupting this never-ending 2-way "Yankees Suck" "Giants Suck" banter, let me just say one word.

At the position they're in it certainly is welcome(they'll take anything they can get), they were skillful in gaining 1 game back, I'll give them that. Noted Clemens looked old and ****** on TV- I guess that expensive project isn't starting soon.

Important tip for you--  I don't care what they say either about me ::)

If a judge gets a hold of this who shares my concept of "personal accountability," a cornerstone of my Conservative Principles, this lawsuit will be dismissed faster than a rabbit gets ******.

There's only 1 person responsible for Hancock's death.  And that person is Hancock himself.

Just read that story and can't believe that the case will go to trial.  The only one who was responsbile for the untimely death of Hancock was himself.  Trying to sue the owner of a disable car, the tow truck company and driver are a poor excuse for a case.  Just a bunch of money hungry lawyers who want to get richer.  I'm glad the idiot didn't kill anyone else as usually the case.

The position that they're in?  You mean their May position?

2005: 11-19 start.  Won the division.

You can expect more of the same this year.

Food for thought, they're below the Pirates...  I don't care for baseball myself, but even I know that's ugly. :)

Ouch...just like the NYY, the Giants just got swept at home, being under 500 hurts. At least they're(SFG) still under 5 games back though :-\.

I am not backing off my prediction that the Yankees are going to turn this around and still get into the playoffs, but I can't shake the feeling that the Yanks are a couple losses away from Cashman's head rolling.

It's gonna be Cashman, not Torre.

No doubt, I wouldn't expect you to even if it were late August and the team were in the same position then.

Yeahhhhh sure, if it were late August, with 1 month to play and the Yanks were 6 games under .500, I'd be the first to wave the white flag.  That's checkmate. 

6 games under .500 in May is not.

Well, even though I am definitely not a fan of the Yankees, I am a fan of a different team who found themselves in a similar situation last year...

2006 AL Central Champion MN Twins
as of May 30th, 2006 - 23-28 (4th place, 11.5 games back)
at the end of the year - 96-66 (1st place)

So yeah, I agree that 5 or 6 games below .500 (and 10+ games out of first) in late May is no big deal...  :D

Baseball is funny like that.  Teams get hot and cold at different times of the year, it's really too early to write them off just yet.  Now, if the Yankees are still below .500 after the All-Star break, we can start talking bad about them.  ;)

There's another parallel there too Jeff.  Clemens is about to emerge about the same time that Liriano did for the Twins last year.  Liriano's emergence basically coincided with the improvement in the standings.
