    NEW YORK -- When the idea of offering Alex Rodriguez a position as a "special adviser" -- meant to soften the blow of giving one of the game's all-time greatest players his outright release -- was floated by New York Yankees assistant GM Jean Afterman, it drew a distinct reaction from her boss.

    "I thought it was f---ing crazy,'' Brian Cashman said. "He ain't taking no coaching job.''

    Cashman's skepticism was shared by manager Joe Girardi.

    Long live Rookie Pimp Godzilla Matsui
    And there are members of the Yankees' baseball hierarchy who believe he can be a valuable spring instructor. "He would be less like Reggie and more like Matsui," said a team source who is not a fan of Jackson's skills as a talent evaluator. "Matsui is perfect. He has a great eye and great insights, but he's almost too respectful. He never wants to step on the coaches' toes. I don't think Alex will have that problem."

    At the Orioles game right now, Camden Yards best looking ballpark I've been to. $17 for a crab cake sandwich and chips not worth it though :mad:

    Giants win 2 in a row for the First time in a Month after relinquishing 1st place for the first time since May with their worst record after the All Star Break?

    BASED BARTOLO THE GOD

    Stops them from winning 3 in a row. Every other year? "Its an even year!" No. Bartolo is every year.
    "If the commissioner saw his at bat, Colon, he'd put in the DH into the NL tomorrow!" -hyuk hyuk Giants announcers.
    Bartolo drawing the 1st walk of his career back on Monday. Break out the rubber chickens.

    I know ESPN always does this but I'm surprised the Little League World Series is still on television. Who actually watches this?

    Do you want the sport promoted to younger generations or not?

    Telling kids they're going to be televised is always a huge deal for them.

    ESPN only puts on the LLWS because it makes money, and doesn't care about promoting the game out of goodwill. Nick's comment provided some insight since I really don't understand the appeal of airing it on television.

    Of course the kids playing are hype as fuck for the LLWS but I'm not so sure other kids want to watch other kids play baseball. I'm fairly certain the target audience is for parents and 99% of kids insta-flip the channel to SpongeBob. I'd like to be proven otherwise but I've never really cared for the LLWS even as a kid.

    Guaranteed Rate Field is something that I have to get used to...............just like U.S. Cellular Field.
    Doesn't help that the Sox are 60-65.

    Meanwhile the Cubs are best in the league right now.

    Like the Cubs............hate most of their fanbase.

    Should I just call off work after this season just in case?

    Billy Butler put on the CONCUSSION disabled list, by Danny Valencia's Fists

    That has to be the one guy in the whole locker room not to mess with.

    Bomani Jones had the good take, so much so I didn't even look up the real story.

    'You're calling this guy the B word, getting into his face in front of everybody. Messing with his money (something about cleats/brand sponsorship) yeah he wears those on the field too! Then saying he's not going to do nothing. That all adds up to an audience for the fight and definitely someone is going to do something because thats the exact lead up for a fight, much less, known to be a hothead/incidents in the past Valencia just given away from a Playoff team contender in the middle of a season!'

    Much different from saying DH Billy Butler, "Do you question if you should mess with Billy Butler?!"

    Couple months ago with the Home Run after being brushed off the plate, bat toss, yelling to the Catcher. Catcher can't say nothing he can even hear as he starts the Home Run trot around the bags.


    Talking heads Fosse and the other guy:

    Incidents like this used to be kept within the lockerroom!

    We are reporting Billy Butler on the concussion disabled list!

    Tim Tebow working out as we speak!!! Supposedly a 40/80 on the MLB scale for arm strength (below average I think?) And 60/80 speed (above average I think).

    Apparently the Mariners did not attend his workout.

    Hence why they will not make the postseason.

    If Rangers sign Tim Tebow then it will be Russell Wilson and Tim Tebow batting 3rd and 4th come playoff time :coffee:

    I watched Tebow workout he hits a 430-foot bomb

    Makes catches w two hands like ur taught in little league scouts mark him down for it

    Says arm and tracking are sub-par

    Rockies and Braves most interested. Rockies would be the best fit IMO. Move cargo to center or something. Dont think Tebow will ever actually Make it to the bigs but im rooting for him

    It would be awesome if Tebow even made it to the majors. I'm all for cheesy follow your dream stories. I think the Braves will sign him since they need all the media hype they can get before moving to the new Stadium

    Ms on an 8-game streak, including 3 out of 4 against the Rangers and sweeps over two lesser teams in the A's and Angels.

    Now comes the losing streak helps them finish one game out of the postseason just like two years ago.

    LOL

    Dang when was I writing this post. I don't even have browser history of Brian Wilson. Probably attacking a water cooler instead of the water fountain while Manager Joe Mad watches.

    Manager suspended over a trade or something news today.
    Didn't notice Red Sox jump into 1st place in the wide open-Yankees still-even-in-it division either.
