What the Yankees Need Today
It is a well known fact that the Yankee brass frequents the "Respect Jeter's Gangster" blog on a daily basis, and gets the majority of their good ideas from this site. As a result, we bear a responsibility far greater than most Derek Jeter's Gangster related sites. With that said, I think we need to provide some of that surface puncturing insight that our page is known for in the Yankees upper management. So here is our free advice to the Yankee brass. First, the thing you need most today is a win. Its a ground breaking concept I know, but losing doesn't seem to be getting you closer to your post season goals. Second, Justin Christian cannot start over Johnny Damon. Damon's one of the few batters in this lineup batting over .300. Third, A-Rod needs to give way to Nady. I'm sorry to say it, but Nady's been hot, and A-Rod's decidedly not. Lastly, the candy needs to come back. At this point, its clear the loss of sugar and sweets has taken its toll on this team. The healthy snacks aren't cutting it, and who can blame them? Have you ever had natural peanut butter? It sucks. Trail mix without chocolate drops? Who comes up with this crap? So there you have it Steinbrenner fam. Get on it.
