Yankee fans and media have said it's ok to cheer for Giambi since he "came clean" and all Bonds needed to do was do the same. It'll be interesting to see what the excuse for cheering Bonds will now be.

I'm not going to believe a website that says the "Dodgers are F'ed" until I see something else...

That would be perfect - I've got tix to the Yankees/Angels game on August 3.

I LOVE THE CIRCUS!:)

Sounds like they took a chance on Richie Sexson.

This really shows how far the Yankees have fallen. Although I have long hated them, they always demanded a certain sence of pride and dignity in there players. They held there players to a higher standard, or so they claimed. Keep Giambi was bad enough but Bonds would just be the icing on the cake.

Red Sox fans will have a field day with this.

You mean random sites on the internets aren't reliable?

I am sure they'll be fine once they realize they are Yankee fans and they are thus entitled to everything they desire including signing scumbags, cheaters and whores in the pursuit of another championship. Once the put on the pinstripes the player in question is immediately cleansed of their sins and forgiven for all past indiscretions.

Oh gawd did I just type that?

Would they cheer Scott Peterson if the Yanks signed him?

Ken Rosenthal is saying the Yankees have no interest in signing bonds, but are on the verge of signing Sexton. I'll take his word on it.

Not sure I agree. generally a classy organization...but willing to wink at certain habits and behavior if it helped them win.

Wow, not exactly the "change of scenery" I pictured Sexson going to turn things around.

I guess the market for a low average, high strikeout guy is pretty lean these days.

I doubt Barry will be signed.

That'd be a nice send-off for Yankee Stadium, to have Bonds there for the final games. :o: I don't believe they'd be dumb enough to do this.

Sexson will make people yearn for Steve Balboni and Mike Pagliarulo.

Exactly. He hasn't been involved with operations for a few years now.

His sons (Hank and Hal) with Cashman call the shots now.

The way that George blubbered on the grass in the cart told it all. He looked sterile and ashen.

Thanks for letting me remember what it was like when the Yankees just plain sucked. Highlight of my day thus far!

Bam Bam?

Why stop there? Wasn't there a late-career Jesse Barfield on the roster w/ Matt Nokes at one point? I think that was the year they manned up and gave Bernard Gilkey a shot, wasn't it?

They also had Andy Stankiewicz, Pat Kelly, Roberto Kelly, Mel Hall, and Stump Merrill for a manager! :o:

The tail end of this thread has brought a considerable smile to my face. Well done, WSIers. Well done.

In 1967 the Yankees had a Carl Yastrzemski Day to sell tickets.
