  1. I was not allowed to create a topic, but I was wondering are there signature limits? I feel like lately they are WAY to big and half the page is scrolling through signatures for one line responses... We used to have specific guidelines (I like 400 pixels and two lines of text, or something along those lines...) but I can't find them at the moment. You're right though - it would be nice if people were courteous and kept them managable. If you want to skip them altogether, you can select the "Games" skin at the bottom of the page, if that helps. EDIT: I also split the topic so it has its o
  2. Oh the differences in organizations...where Gregg is a low cost option to them, he'd be one of our higher paid players (if my memory is accurate). Probably - his $2.5 million salary this year was the highest on the team (except for Lo Duca's $5 million but I don't think we paid more than 2.5).
  3. ahahahah I found out he changed his name from Cocobelli to Coco what a bad childhood he mus of had His name is Covelli.
  4. Are Yankee fans as embarrassed by The Boss's little boy as they should be? Yes.
  5. why did my message sent 2 times? :confused Fixed now. :thumbup
  6. So much for holding him back to stop his arbitration clock... but with an injury it seems necessary anyways.
  7. Restko was traded in the offseason. I believe to the Rangers Right - he's with the Bakersfield Blaze.
  8. A bloated program only gets worse.
  9. Leading Off for the Yankees ... Billy Crystal Mar 13, 10:32 AM (ET) TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -No joke: Billy Crystal is leading off for the New York Yankees. The comedian was put in the top spot for Thursday's exhibition game, listed as the designated hitter against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Wearing No. 60, Crystal got his chance a day before his 60th birthday. A lifelong Yankees fan, the righty was set to face Pirates left-hander Paul Maholm. Derek Jeter followed Crystal in the lineup, with Alex Rodriguez, Bobby Abreu and Robinson Cano among the other regulars also playing. Johnny D

  11. By DAVE CAMPBELL MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -Right-hander Livan Hernandez and the Minnesota Twins agreed Tuesday to a $5 million, one-year contract that could earn him an additional $2 million in performance bonuses. The Twins are short on experience in their rotation, after trading Johan Santana and losing Carlos Silva as a free agent this winter. Hernandez will join a handful of young starting pitching candidates, including Francisco Liriano, Scott Baker, Boof Bonser, Kevin Slowey, Nick Blackburn, and Phil Humber, when batterymen have their first official spring training workout Monday at Fort
  12. I'm glad the Yankees signed him long term - he has a few holes (patience at the plate and his defense is questionable at times), but there is no doubting his talent. :thumbup
  13. From MLB.com: http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20...7&fext=.jsp Tribe, Julio agree to Minor League dealFormer closer invited to camp, will battle for bullpen spot By Anthony Castrovince / MLB.com CLEVELAND -- An Indians team that appeared to be heading into Spring Training with its bullpen all but set has a new and intriguing name to add to the mix. The Tribe reached an agreement on Thursday with veteran reliever Jorge Julio on a one-year Minor League contract with an invitation to Spring Training camp. Julio began the 2007 season with the Marlins before becoming an import
  14. I think this organization has a soft spot for Matty T. I know I do... As do I - he is the last Marlin to come through the Portland Sea Dogs when they were the Marlins' AA team (meaning I got to see him play back then). Strangely enough, the number of former managers outweighs the number of former players on the team - both Fredi Gonzalez and Carlos Tosca were former Sea Dogs managers.

Bloom / MLB.com Bud Selig is entering his 16th full season as Commissioner. (Aude Guerrucci) SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Commissioner Bud Selig's contract has been extended by Major League Baseball's 30 owners for three years, taking him through the 2012 season.

  16. He was just elected with 86% of the vote.
  17. The only thing I have against the Goose is that likely he would go in as a Yankee
  18. Pretty soon Bonds and McGwire are gonna come out and say they only did it once or twice. It's hard to say, but in both Roberts' and Pettitte's case the accusations were that they only took them a couple times. That's not inconsistent with the report.
