    Thanks, Coach. I agree. Seems to be taking a toll on the team lately, too.

    Robert, as a yankee fan since 1950 it makes me sick to my stomach to watch the fiasco that is happening with them concerning Jeter. They do not need a manager if they are going to let has-been players run the team. As a retired coach of 35 years i always used the yankees as the example for my teams. Today it shames me to say that they are putting Jeter and Posada above winning and the rest of the players know it, as well as all the true die-hard fans who live and die with this team.
