Snooze-Fest Monday

with 3 comments

Welcome to February 1st, we’ve yet to have snow on the mountain and it’s in the high  40’s this week, yes there is a God

As for the Yanks, they  continue to be as quiet as a car engine with a dead battery RE: free agency or upgrading their much needed starting rotation this week

Let’s review

More of the same from Ken Doll Davidoff


Davidoff is out of material, so he rehashed his annual Who’s the Yankees Ace.. Nothing new Re: the starting 5 plus Nova.. He did drop Severino’s fairly high 4.37 FIP in his 11 starts (totaling 62.1 innings, which makes Severino a less desirable starter to  the Fangraphs crowd then it does for us

And from from ESPN’s Keith Law who was asked if he still believed Severino’s ultimately destined for the bullpen:

Yes. If you’re going to ask a question like that, you need some reason why I might have a new opinion on the player, such as a change in delivery.

So far Severino has made guys like Law and his followers like Mikey 2 Chins Axisa look foolish, we can only hope the new bulked up version can continue to make us forget how fragile the rest of the rotation was/ is.

Basically a Yankees weakness last season was the rotation, so Cash-Brenner did  nothing about it over the winter… Why? They  don’t want to  spend the money..

I do like Davioff’s concept Yanks start  the game with Chapman for 2 then Miller in the 3rd, Betances in the 5th… I’m assuming he wants Tanaka, Pineda, Eovaldi  and Sabathia to finish off the last 9 outs

That’s fine but what  about game 2? Severino to Rumbelow to Shreve to Lindgren ?

Ken Doll  also  throws Tyson Ross in the mix as a deadline acquisition.. The Padres will  sell high, want an elite prospect or 3,  so I don’t see Cashman going there

Mikey 2 Chins


Had a pinch  hitter and they  advocated for Nova as a reliever… Some stats and glass half full  stuff from  the Jr Gm’s…As Davidoff mentions, the hope and prayer is Nova being 2 yr’s removed from TJ, and he’s in a walk yr so maybe he’ll be OK…Only hold your breath  for 20  seconds on that one, no need to get sick, plenty of time for that when Nova pitches

Hal Gets Taken


Apparently Hal is not only an amateur weather man he’s a memorabilia collector.. Not a very smart one though, he was raked over the Coals by Mastro Auctions

I know nothing about this stuff, but they  got Jr for about 35 Large.. Stick to  counting beans Hal

The Gift That Keeps on Giving


In another there is nothing going on in the Bronx  snooze fest, I’m glad we finally put this to bed, nothing worse then hearing how Jeter gave his one night flings a gift basket when  they left in the morning…

Jeter denies it and so  does his future Ex Wife Hannah Davis

“Let’s be Honest”this potential marriage has Imus in the Morning written all over it.

Super Bore


Nothing is worse then Francesa during Super Bowl Week, his give away contest is a ratings killer

As Mushnick points out

Nothing quite so smugly lame as Mike Francesa’s annual Super Bowl trivia contest. It’s a quiz show without answers.

  1. Sal, can’t thank you enough for posting a little cheesecake this morning. Just like the bandleader who wouldn’t let Johnny Fontaine out of his contract until the Don & Luca Brazzi paid him a visit, I’ve heard those stories for years on Jeter & his swag gift packages that were given to the one-night-stands that didn’t make the cut. But you’re right. Hannah is SO hot, the shoe is probably on the other foot now. And if you’re Jeter, who the hell cares?
