If Jose Reyes was on The Yankees…

Posted by TopOfTheThread on May 20, 2010

If Jose Reyes was on The Yankees, he would be the Yankee Centerfielder.Jose Reyes On the Yankees Mets

The current Yankee infield is Mark Teixeira (1B), Robinson Cano (2B), Derek Jeter (SS), and Alex Rodriguez (3B).  He is not displacing Jeter from SS.  And there is no way he would displace Cano, Rodriguez,  or Teixeira.

I suppose some Mets fans would argue he’s better than Jeter but he’s never consistently shown it.  Interesting.

The top 3 lies of all time – the updated list

Posted by TopOfTheThread on February 22, 2009

We used to joke around that 3 of the great lies of all time were

  1. The check is in the mail
  2. You can’t get pregnant the first time
  3. It’s not you. It’s me.

Recently there seems to be a need to update this list. Here are a few updated examples

  1. Read my lips, no new taxes <George Bush>
  2. I did not have sex with that woman <Bill Clinton referring to Monica Lewinsky>
  3. I did not take steroids or any performance enhancing drugs <Alex Rodriguez, he later recanted>.(Not to stick up for him for his ethics and motives, but it’s kind of interesting how Jose Canseco has NOT turned out to be as big a liar as we thought… right?)

The check is in the mail. I suppose we can keep that one on the list for Bernie Madoff.

Who can we trust these days?  It has become a sad environment, not just because of the financial problems,  political polarity, etc…  but because of the warranted distrust in the world.  Here is a song that has come to mind. It is not an exact fit  (actually it’s a stretch) , but today, where are all our leaders? Who can we trust? Our athletic heroes?
