Peter Abraham the beat writer for the New Jersey Journal News is going goofy waiting.

He has a list of 2008 Yankees promotions including

What *******s.

They need to issue a statement to say that they haven't made a decision yet. :rolleyes: Get over yourselves.

What is Jerry Reinsdorf's usual line? The Yankees should have said that.

:reinsy
"When we have something to announce, we'll announce it."

The longer it takes for them to decide, the more likely it is that Mariano will be in the Yankee pinstripes next season.

It is my fondest hope that the Yanks hire Mattingly as manager. They have not won a thing with Donnie Golfball anywhere near their bench. Juan Uribe has won more World Series than Mattingly. Willie Harris has more World Series hits than Mattingly.

George, I say hire the man, long term.

Am I the only one who thinks Yankee organizational meetings are like the ones that George Constanza was in on Seinfeld? I'm picturing Costanza eating strawberries and spilling it on his Babe Ruth jersey while the Steinbrenners try to decide what to do with Torre.:tongue:

Torre was summoned to Tampa.

TAMPA - Joe Torre met here today with Yankee brass, in a surprise meeting that could signal a new deal is imminent.

Torre, wearing a dress shirt with sleeves rolled up, departed from Westchester this morning and landed here in a private jet at the Hawker Beechcraft Services airport at 1:26 p.m. He was accompanied by GM Brian Cashman and Yankees COO Lonn Trost.

Or body suit man. I wonder if they were just making fun of the Yankees in that series. I remember them being Mets fans befoer George worked for the Yankees.

This will be the fall of the Yankees. Mattingly and Girardi will flop hard. Only Bobby Valentine can right this ship. Mattingly has no managerial experience. They won't bring back A-Rod if he opts out, which being a Boras client he will. Without A-Rod, they might not even make the playoffs next year. Their only hope would be that their young pitchers step up.

Jerry grew up a Mets fan (in real life and so i guess in the show), whereas George was a Yankee fan a la Larry David, whom the character George was based on. There are interviews with Jerry where he talks about his adolesence consisting of cereal and Mets baseball. Larry can be seen on HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm and is always talking about how he loves the Knicks and the Yankees. He claims he could be the GM of an NBA franchise. And yes, (i think) that the show is making fun of the Yankees, Steinbrenner in particular; but it is all in good fun.

Good info. I've heard Steinbrenner loves Larry David's impression of him on Seinfeld. It's good to know he has a sense of humor.
