What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
I saw something last night on TBS that just flat pissed me off. Mark Teixeira saying "We don't hang Division Champion banners here. We don't hang ALCS banners here. We hang WS banners here".Really, Mark? You've been a Yankee for 3 years and you have won one WS, in which you contributed an average of .136 on 3 hits in 6 games. And all at $20.625M. And hit a whopping .248 for $22.5M this year. Wow!
Since his departure, the Rangers have gone to the WS, albeit a loss. Mike has been an All-Star 7 times vs. Tex's 2. Mike makes $6.25M less, leads this club with class, and plays damn near any position, except manager. And make no mistake, he could even do that. He's played more games than Tex, Matched him in Hits and Runs and RBI pretty much. Slaughtered him in BA and OBP and SO's.
And this ain't just about Michael. Compare Napoli, Beltre, Hamilton, etc. to that smarmy Mark Teixeira. And then add into it we have Feliz, Andrus, Matty, and one more MLB up & comer in Beau Jones for that jack-ass. I can only hope that the Yankees win, just so we can beat them again, and then go on to hang OUR WS banner.
Here's to you, Tex. I am wearing my claw shirt, yet all fingers are covered up but one. Take a guess which one.
We got salty too and traded him for Ramon Mendez Who is a nice pitching prospect
Very true, Martin. Good point!
Really, Mark? That's just arrogant, and it's not fair, either.
To start with, the Yankees have been around longer than most other teams. For a myriad of different reasons, they have been a good team most of the time since they've been in the circuit. They've won 27 world series. When you have a history as deep as the Yankees do, you don't have room to hang those paltry little Division Champs banners.
I'm glad you enjoy New York. But we enjoy it here without you. Trading you was one of the best moves our team has ever made. Your 39 home runs and 111 RBIs are good, sure, but in exchange we got Elvis, Feliz, and Harrison, and one guy we haven't brought up yet. Good riddance.
Once again proving that youre absolutely the most hated man to step foot in RBPiA, even over Arod. Tex is a no talent ass clown, and has been a spoiled brat his entire career. We get the last laugh. When end comes to end, had he got his $hit together and got with JDs plan and waited it out, he could've gone down as one of the greatest 1B ever on an extended span of Rangers dominance.
Instead he took the low road, tanked til his trade demands were met, and now as a yankee, when his career is over he'll be mere after thought. A nobody, but the answer to a 4th inning aflac trivia question one day. Enjoy attempting to tank your way out of NY the next few years when your overaged, under-talented team is getting passed by the O's and Blue Jays, and we're racking up more banners to hang and rings to put on our fingers. Stay classy Tex and go F*** your mother
