I’m Mad, Frustrated and a Little Pissed Off. What about You?


When was the last time I did a rant on the blog? I feel like it’s been a while, especially for me, and I also feel like it’s time. The time is right for one. I’m not asking for widespread change or unrealistic trades, DFA’s or anything like that. I’m just asking for some victories. Apparently that is too much to ask as a lot of things seem to be thus far this season.


It’s not like me to keep things bottled up inside, I have to get them out or I will explode, so I do so in a rant here on this lovely Friday morning. I’m mad, I’m frustrated and I am a little pissed off. I don’t even have to ask “what about you?” because I already know the answer. I see the tweets, I read the emails and I respond to almost every comment on the blog. We as a Yankees fan base are NOT happy about this start, not in the slightest. We as a collective group were not happy to see CC Sabathia “win” the 5th starter job and we haven’t been happy very since.

Alex Rodriguez is struggling. How many times are we going to watch him swing at a low and inside fastball that he may not have been able to catch up to even ten years ago and then proceed to watch one right down the middle for strike three on the next pitch? Swing the bat Alex! A frontwards K is always better than a backwards one.

Don’t even get me started on RISPFails. The New York Yankees have failed with runners in scoring position so many times this season they are coming up with new and inventive ways to do it. Second and third with one out, ground into a double play. Runner on second and nobody out, don’t even advance the runner. Have a pitcher on the ropes and swing at the first pitch, especially when that first pitch is a bad pitch. The Yankees have been beaten about three times this season and beat themselves the rest of the losses, it’s crazy.

I only rant because I care and I only care because I love this team. This team is jam packed with talent and while there are a few areas of concern and a few areas that are in need of an upgrade, as I stare at you Chase Headley, I still believe in this team. It’s obvious to me though that this team doesn’t believe in itself and that is a huge problem. That’s a player problem, a manager problem and an organizational problem that needs to be fixed now before the standings tell us that it’s too late. Just win, please?
