    Lol.

    Butler is the man!

    Is he still with the Pawsox?

    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    6. Benintendi
    7. Moncada
    12. Margot

    Is Devers ranked too low?!?!?!?!?
    No.

    Moncada is still higher than many seem to think he should be...basically even with Beni.

    I’ll take the number 1 spot and 4 in the top 28 while still having the number 2 farm
    The rebuild is complete.

    Pretty incredible. 4 in the top 28 on graduates and top 2 currently.

    Yeah, they re-signed him this offseason.

    It's what happens when you are completely unable to win the division for 5 straight years.

    No, it's not. It happens when you get one of the top 5 picks five years in a row.

    How many playoff games have you won the last two years?

    I can't hear you over the flapping of the past two division title banners!

    Since 2001:

    Red Sox 3-0 in the World Series

    Yankees 1-2 in the World Series

    Now they can't even win the division anymore. What a sad time to be a Yankee fan. I expect to see even more empty luxury seats in the Bronx next year!

    How many playoffs have you been in over the last 2 years?

    (Hint: one less than the Sox.)

    How many playoffs have you been in over the last 5 years?

    (Hint: one less than the Sox.)

    How many championships in the last 5 years?

    (Hint: one less than the Sox.)


    For a fan base that used to flaunt "the rings", it's refreshing to see the scrambling and juggling of judgement methodologies.

    I do recall not too long ago, Yankee fans were all about rings and seasons they didn't win one were considered failures.

    Now their trash talk is about maximizing their glory from one failed playoff run...

    Aaahhhhhh!

    Life the way it should be!

    I was responding to the “inability to win the division” comment, which is pretty irrelevant anyway. I do like the 2001 cutoff though. Nice cherry picking! The fact that the Giants have actually been the cream of the crop the past 6 years or so (minus last year) is disheartening for Yanks and Sox fans. The game is always at its best when the Yanks and Sox are fighting it out. That being said, we are back and ready to take the AL East and we are legit title contenders for the first time entering a season in a long time!

    I finally have to ask you this: what's the lowdown on your screen name-does it come from Reggie?
