    Rookie Devil
  1. I don't think Giambi is a fine replacement at all. The Yankees paid WAYYYY too much for him. Got even less out of it in the postseason and lost a clubhouse leader, standup guy and proven playoff performer to boot. Way to reward the guy who worked hard for you and kept the series going last year with what I think will be my most memorable HR ever. It's tough being a Yankee fan in the buying spree times. The players I like have always... and will always be the talent they nurture (who then does deserve their money) Jeter, Williams, Soriano and the journeyman guys like Paulie and Tino. That's who keeps me around, not Jason freakin' Giambi.
  2. I can assure you that the Avs would kick everyone avs if this deal went down. It's like akin to getting Drury back. I don't see the Devils getting anything out of this (unless the ONLY objective is salary dump), and that's why I think it's either what the Avs WANT out of the deal or just a complete (N)Đ„verson fabrication. History leans toward the latter.
  3. I was the regular writer in Port Charlotte when many of the Rangers crop came through there. Pudge was sooooo young, then. It's so bizarre to hear stuff about him now. Going to Japan seems so wrong. It's amazing that no one wants to take the chance on him and that he's even considering that.
  4. And didn't this come after a report in one of the legit papers saying that the Devs absolutely don't want Hinote?
  5. I think he'll get a good reception. The fans on hand at the game are a lot more lenient than we tend to be here. Although that's not exactly right, cause I too would applaud his name in an announcement -- no matter what I think of the end of his tenure with us. But I'm generally like that for past Devils (there are only a handful that I would not applaud and would actually boo.)
  6. Fourth Period.com on home page again reporting the Devs-Avs rumor, quoting Neverson -- but I don't see that story at the Post site. Mark (N)Đ„verson reports in today's New York Post that New Jersey Devils GM Lou Lamoriello may be considering a deal of Patrik Elias, Mike Danton and a second-rounder to the Colorado Avalanche for Alex Tanguay, Martin Skoula and Dan Hinote. It is speculated however that Colorado GM Pierre Lacroix will wait to see how the current roster performs under new coach Tony Granato.
  7. I do think it's a cool thing. Let the guys have a break. Unfortunately the Yankees just cut loose one of my favorite guys, so it's not gonna be a good Christmas for him. (Guy mentioned in OT thread for anyone interested.)
  8. Crud, another one of my fave Yankees out. Last year I was on Yankee sabbatical as Tino moved on. I don't think I'll boycott this year, but I really did like Shane Spencer. I hope he goes somewhere good and not somewhere I hate.
  9. Nieuwy, I'm so glad you saw the end of the slump!!!! Tell your bf that I wanna hear the rest of that Schwab story since the answering machine didn't tell me much. (ps: have i mentioned how much i love that avatar?)
  10. I'm kind of surprised that no teams made moves the last day before the freeze. Not really surprised that we didn't (except where it concerns the plummeting value of Danton), but I am kinda surprised that others haven't.
  11. Yep!!! That last line is my fave part of the post.
  12. Plus he's been injured every other day on every other body part. Sigh. I liked him as a Panther.
  13. The talk that goes on on this board is the same as the talk on any forum for any sport anywhere... Somewhere someone's grieving for Sarah Hughes' recent skating performances. ("Did she put on some weight?" "If only she hadn't two-footed that landing." "Can we trade her to Russia for Slutskaya?")
  14. I believe we just saw a story recently that said he's undergoing another operation. They still believe in him and that he'll be able to play. A lot of people compare it to the early Sykie problems. Hopefully it'll work out that way in the long run. It feels bleak while you're going through it tho.
  15. Yes, very!! I love that kinda symmetry. I was given three Devils things at work by my Secret Santa yesterday -- a bear, a Madden card and a Stevens card. I'm afraid to move them off the shrine now (but I gotta give that card to my sis!
