The golden boy..



Look at this golden man. How I have missed his perfect tan, those purple lips and that ass that looks like two scoops of.....Oh my, I'm sorry, my fingers wander when my mind does.

Alex was interviewed at camp today and the focus was what a difference a year makes. This time last year Alex was coming clean about his steroid use and starting his 2009 embarrassed. Of course the season ended with a championship and clutch season for Alex. What better way too take focus off of a scandal?

I like Alex as a player and have always stuck by him, but I can't help but keep thinking that he's the one that's going to get away with it. Alot of players have been exposed to have used steroids and watched their shine and career go down the toilet but Alex is seemingly avoiding this. What do you guys think? Post your thoughts in the comments section. You will notice that you now have to register to leave comments, this is due to the fact that some bitch asses like to appear anonymous and talk alot of trash about me. So thank them for the inconvenience.

Hope your all enjoying this lovely snow storm! Ha!

Tiger Speaks

Tomorrow at 11 am. This shit is going to draw more viewers than Obama. I can't wait to laugh at what he is going to say....

Sexual addiction, the luxury of all wealthy athletes.

At least it's not A-Rod!

Summary

The Yankees limited their free agent spending this offseason, making only two major moves in Pettitte and Johnson. They kept both to one-year commitments. GM Brian Cashman was an active trader in adding Granderson and Vazquez, and he didn't surrender a ton or take on ridiculous contracts. Cashman's fine offseason was not about payroll clout this time.

CHONE projections have the new Yankee lineup scoring over 5.8 runs per game. Even if that's optimistic, it still looks like the best offense in the league. The addition of Vazquez plus Phil Hughes possibly replacing Joba Chamberlain is likely to push the Yankees' rotation ERA below 2009's 4.48 mark. Cashman should be applauded for affordably improving upon a World Series champion, at least on paper.


I don't know about you, but the loss of Shelley Duncan gets me teary eyed.

The quest for #28 begins...

I can't believe the last time I posted was January 6th! Shame on me!

So here we are again....pitchers and catchers reported today which marks the beginning of spring training for the Yankees, as well as excitement for us Yankee fans. Fans will be seeing some new faces and missing some old ones. One of the reasons I have not updated in a while is that I really could not form an opinion I could stick with about all the changes and decisions that were being made. But now I can...ready freddy? Ok here it is...

I will miss all the veteran and fan favorite players that will not be returning this season. However, fan favorites and aging players do not win championships every season. Especially when they are asking for contracts for years and inflated payrolls...even for the Yankees. I love Matsui but lets face it, every time he ran the bases or swung his bat last season I thought his knees were going to explode. Johnny is one of my all time favorites but to see him in left field for another 3 or even 2 years would be unbearable with his arm.

I think the Yankees have found a perfect balance of veterans and the faces of the future. After years of going either all veteran or all young stars they have finally found a comfy zone in the middle.....or so we will see.

Happy 2010 baseball season y'all! Woooohoooo

You can now become a fan of Yankeehottie on facebook by the way. :)
