Will Randy Levine Please Shut Up?

Am I the only one that cringes every time I hear Randy Levine open his mouth? I can’t be, right? Will Randy Levine please shut up already? No really, he needs to. In his latest sound bite Levine was bashing the media when asked the question about whether the New York Yankees should be “sellers” at this year’s trading deadline. Now myself, as a person who has watched at least 90% of the games this season with the exception being day games while I’m at work and many of the west coast games, I think the Yankees should be sellers. You know why? Because I watch the games and I look at the schedule and I know that the Yankees being within striking distance of the second Wild Card is a fallacy that will correct itself once the Yankees stop playing teams like the Minnesota Twins. Randy Levine on the other hand? He’s either dumb, delusional, ignorant or a combination of the three.

Here is the exact quote from Levine from the StubHub press conference earlier in the week regarding the idea of the Yankees trading away pieces at the trade deadline:

“You (reporters) obviously have nothing more important to write about than to write nonsense about that,” Levine said. “When we decide to become sellers, if we decide to become sellers, or if we decide to become buyers, you’ll know about it. I guess the difference is most of you guys have never run anything. We have a lot of history here of knowing what we’re doing and a lot of confidence in our baseball operations people, so we’ll see what happens.”

The Yankees should sell and they should start with the team president first and work their way down. Idiot. Just another ignorant and condescending statement from another ignorant and condescending person who rode the coattails of George Steinbrenner and now thinks that their crap doesn’t stink. Well it does because I smell it every time you open your mouth, please shut up. Thank you and have a great rest of your night. 


  1. Burch I have said they should be sellers weeks ago. I get bashed for always knocking the team. You don't have to be a brain surgeon to see this team isnt going anywhere. Make the deals and try and pickup prospects not the suspects we have on the farm. Levine and Trost are both schmucks and like old dinesours need to be put to bed. Sell now because even if you get to the play in game this team doesn't have the goods to advance and AGAIN I have said many times this team is poorly constructed and that's on Hal and the elf and anyone who can't accept that doesn't understand the game or inner workings of a top flight management team.

  2. This team needed the infield replaced they did that and got better and younger. They improved themselves at SS and 2nd base added a pitcher or two and didn't give up to much for them. Gave up more than I like but so what! Next year they will replace our right fielder and 1st baseman. 2018 they may try for Machado at 3rd. I think that would be adding another good bat to Bird, Judge, McCann, and Sanchez.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
