Yeah, up to the "compound" this weekend.


Interesting article on ESPN about the Yankees and possible tampering.

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=1833093

(only part of the article, as the rest of goes off on a tangent)

NEW YORK -- George Steinbrenner's interest in Randy Johnson could end up costing him.

The commissioner's office said Thursday it was reviewing remarks the New York Yankees owner made about the Arizona Diamondbacks ace this week to see if there was any tampering that could result in a fine.

"We are looking into it," spokesman Matt Gould said. "It involves talking about someone under contract to another team."

Steinbrenner has long admired Johnson, going back to when the Big Unit helped Seattle beat the Yankees in the 1995 AL playoffs. Johnson then won three games against the Yankees in the 2001 World Series, pitching the Diamondbacks to the championship.

With the July 31 trade deadline approaching and the Yankees possibly looking to add another starting pitcher, Steinbrenner reiterated Wednesday that he liked the Big Unit.

"God, who wouldn't love to have Randy Johnson?" Steinbrenner told Sporting News Radio. "He's a dominator and we'd love to have him. Anybody would love to have him, but I also know that (Diamondbacks owner) Jerry Colangelo is not going to give him away. We'll have to see what happens as the deadline gets closer. We'll see.

"We will try and make a move somewhere along the line here. We are working on it feverishly," he said. "We are not going to mention any names, but we're looking. You can never have enough pitching."

Johnson has veto power over any deal and the Diamondbacks have repeatedly said they would not trade the five-time Cy Young Award winner.

Last month when New York played at Arizona, the 40-year-old lefty said he had not pondered whether he'd accept a trade to the Yankees.

"Right now, I've not been approached by either team," Johnson said at the time. "It's kind of pointless."

Johnson is in the first year of a $33 million, two-year contract extension. After having surgery on his right knee last year, he has been impressive this season

AGGGH I F'N HATE SHIT LIKE THIS

Daily quickie on Page 2:

Early-season slump a faded memory, the guy is in myth-making mode again: Sick catch in the 12th? How about that beat-up face?
Yes, his slump is gone. But he's still only hitting .272/13/40! That is NOT myth-making!!!

With all of the media sucking Jeter off again, A-Rod's going to get hella jealous.

Associated Press

PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday fired manager Bob Brenley in a move that was anticipated after weeks of poor performances by the team.

The Diamondbacks won the last two games against the San Diego Padres but suffered an 11-game losing streak prior to those wins.

"This is never an easy decision to make, particularly with someone as well-liked and respected as Bob," said Jerry Colangelo, the team's chairman and chief executive.

haha

At least I have a WS championship to reflect upon. All you have is one of the greatest chokes in modern baseball history.

Everyone knew it was coming. I think they waited to do it a day because they won that game on Thursday.

It's too bad really. I hate this modern era of sports where the coach is blamed. He can't help it that his team gets injured and is not playing up to expectations.

I wonder who is taking over. Robin Yount has expressed his desire not to manage. That leaves Al Pedrique who ran the AAA team the past few season, who was promoted to 3B coach this season.

If it was a perfect world, Grace would come out of the booth and manage the team under the condition that he wears a mike and smokes a pack of cigarettes per game.

I wish. There's no way Gracie is going to just jump right into a professional managing career. He'd have to do a few years of minor league managing before they'd even consider that.

Lucky for us AZ D-backs fans, we get to hear him on a nightly basis, since he's the color guy for the TV broadcasts. He's pretty damn funny in the things he says.

He could still be the color guy for the tv broadcasts - who better to do the color commentary than the manager.

The Red Sox are stockpiling mediocre pitchers today. They got Jimmy Anderson from the Cubbies and Brandon Puffer from San Diego. Meh.
