Too much saccharine is bad for the health, YF.

for those of us who aren't supernaturally gifted at the things we do

Oh, and don't drag me down in your own morass of self-doubt.

SF, that's why YF said for "those of us" and not "the rest of us". A subtle discrepance, but a difference nevertheless. Is it time to take an English comprehension class again?

I can read - I just wanted to make sure nobody lumped me in with YF. Nothing wrong with clarifying that, even if some of our readers take things just a tad too seriously here, down to the (possibly unintentional and) arcane spelling of the word "discrepancy".

It does seem, however, that your comment is a clear acknowledgment of my own supernatural gifts, even as you insult. I am completely with you on my skills, in that case, EC101.

Yes, they laughed when I suggested the Yankees consider using starters in relief on their throwing days -- but what is Joe now doing with great success?

First Chacon, and now Small.

(and before you jump in, SF, no, you weren't part of the discussion)

SF as Superman? Residents of Röcken bei Lützen should be on guard for flying debris tonight: Nietzsche is currently spinning in his grave.

go bo sox, yet again, make me a very happy single woman.

No rolling down here. SF is the man. Er hat immer Recht. Alle Hagel der Rot Sox, die Meister.

What's going to be especially nice about Bernie, is seeing the man playing corner outfield and DH for some small park like Texas or Baltimore next year.
I will say this, of all the current Yanks, Bernie is one of the few that has not given the rest of the world a reason to despise him, and the Yanks will miss a class act - past his prime, but a class guy nonetheless.

Brad, you're assuming that the Yankees would let him walk. It's true they turned down his $16 million option, but then again it's not 2001 anymore. There is nothing that would make the Yankees not sign him at a reasonable rate at the end of the season. He knows his legacy here, and he's a fan favorite. He's got very little reason to go elsewhere, and he's a favorite of the Boss too. If you remember in 1998, when he was free agent and the Sox offered him something close to $70 million, it took the Boss 15 minutes to up his offer to $87 million to have him come back. Bernie is not going anywhere.

Mr. Torre met with Bernie a few days ago and told him that this is his time of the year and that the team needs him if we're going to win: to forget the rest of the year, and to do what Bernie always does at this time of year, namely get hot and come through with clutch hits.

Results so far? Two clutch dingers.

Unless the Sox try to overpay him (like last time, when they doubled what Mr. Steinbrenner was offering), Bernie will be back next year. He's a Yankee. He came up before me and has all sorts of post-season records for hits and runs batted in.

Jorgie's picking up, and so are Mackie and Tino. Somebody always picks us up.

Unless the Sox try to overpay him (like last time, when they doubled what Mr. Steinbrenner was offering

What? The Sox bid, the Yankees outbid them by a massive amount. If the Sox were willing to "overpay", then what did the Yankees do when they blew that inflated Boston offer out of the water? I think you don't understand the logic of your own words, Jetes.
