its not even the all star break. even if we have a shitty season which we probably wont because our pitching is now healthy, we dont have to prove a god damn thing. yankees baseball is the greatest dynasty in all of sports. i bet half you people in this thread arent even from new england but you latch onto the sox because the media plays to them like theyre a rag tag team, an underdog. they play the same game the yankees do. they got the second highest payroll in baseball and it would be the same as the yankees if they could generate enough revenue. yankees sell 55000 tickets when they play the pitsburgh pirates, we can afford good players. Epstein does not have "better" morales than the cashman or steinbrenner. The yankees catch more heat for having a higher payroll because they have more world series rings than anyone else.
the yankees are not having a very good season. lets examine why. well, theyve started more pitchers than any other ML team. now why would they do a thing like that? oh yea injuries. in the first series against the red sox we started a kid who pitched in Double A last year! do you realize how desperte you have to be to be starting a pitcher against the sox who was in the minors last year? well when our rotation got healthy and the bullpen settled down took 2/3 from the red sox then went on a 9-0 tear against the national league.
and we all know you hate Arod but we also know you're jelous. you were just pissed you didnt get him because the move from texas to boston was not approved by the union a few years ago. ok so the yankees got him and say what you want but hes leading the league in HR's and RBI's, he had the go ahead HR in the 9th the last time they played the sox and hes batting like .396 in the 9th inning. DiceK is a $101M bust (his ERA is 4.18).
I hope you do win this year. and the next 9 years because you will still be 10 rings short of where the yankees are.
Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Whose gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.
