He had one of the best comments (reportedly) about the mayhem of Yankee management:

“They Don’t Think It Be Like It Is, But It Do”

I liked his comment when pondering the importance of batting average with runners in scoring position.

"Scoring position? When I'm at bat, I'm IN Scoring Position!"

I think that story was in "Balls" by Graig Nettles.

RIP. Enjoyed watching him play. I think I have that card.

Two weeks to itchers and scratchers

By all accounts a great guy. Loved his batting stance and of course the famous hair. 68 too young :(

I’m impressed he tallied an even 200 homers and absolutely delighted he amassed a very metal 666 rbi!!!

Another of my childhood favorites leaves the park. Very fun to watch. Great hair.

Snow again in Tokyo. Howya hangin, Jazz?

I met him a few years ago and he was a very nice fellow. I am so glad that the people who run the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame inducted him a couple years back. Love Oscar.

The Muts signed the Todfather - 2 yrs/$17 large

He’ll be BFFs with the thumbs down guy

I hope he hits eleventy homers, all in losing efforts!

Trenton Thunder rebranding as the Trenton Pork Roll for one day a week. Fine. Except the day of the week is . . . Friday nights. Pork on Friday nights?

Great way to annoy both Jews and Catholics.

[9] They hit the trifecta as that ain't going to work for us Muslim fans either!

11 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Feb 5, 2018 9:21 pm

[8] I liked him too, let's hope he does well with the Muts.

So it's going to be Anduar? Or are they making room for....Machado????

12 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Feb 5, 2018 9:23 pm

[6] Dying at work, Boat. Staff issues, angry clients...you know the deal.

[11] Nah. Baltimore hates-hates-hates in-division trades that strengthen their rivals, particularly the Yanks. Buck would journey to the center of the Earth if that were to happen. And say good-bye to our top three pitching prospects; I don't think Cashman's lost all his marbles quite yet.

[9] I said it before and I'll reiterate: "Have Fun With That, Trenton!" NYC has pizza, New England has clam chowdah, Maine has lobster, Philly has cheesesteaks... and Jersey has processed ham on a muhfu**in' Friday...

I think Jainists are going to love the pork roll Fridays.

Old friend Phil Coke is 35 now. He’s coming back from a short stint in Japan to reinvent himself as a knuckler!

16 Chyll Will   ~  Feb 6, 2018 5:59 pm

[15] If he gets it right, he could pitch for another 10-15 years >;)

Russel Wilson? So the Yankees are branching out into football now? I guess Aaron Judge could be the wide receiver.

18 thelarmis   ~  Feb 7, 2018 9:52 pm

GI Joe got a gig on MLBN. My favorite station, so...it’s not what I want.

19 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Feb 7, 2018 10:11 pm

so which ny team has the better QB? I say Wilson is better than Tebow.

20 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Feb 8, 2018 2:07 am

[18] I look forward to him explaining how Ells-y (Jacoby-Y?) can be a strong bench presence for the Bombers.

21 Boatzilla   ~  Feb 8, 2018 5:09 am

[18] Ha! Good one.

22 Boatzilla   ~  Feb 8, 2018 5:21 am

[20] Ellsy can barely compose a complete thought. I guess he could keep the towels warm/cool.

I can't imagine Joe in the booth. He is not a good speaker. At least we won't have the disapproving face anymore.

23 GaryfromChevyChase   ~  Feb 8, 2018 10:46 am

can you imagine if Coffee Joe had signed with ESPN and been paired with ARod?

24 Chyll Will   ~  Feb 8, 2018 4:43 pm

[19] Yankees have definitely had the upshot over the Mets and many other teams over the years when it comes to the NFL...
