This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Were B. Cashman to express satisfaction w/ NYY record... by Scoop80
from 2010-14, you'd hear the hue and cry in NY all the way to Philly. Dynasties don't accept mediocrity. Many of us stay here b/c we recall times when a top 10 finish was the norm and a serious NC run was always a hope, and the others, I guess, stay b/c they've heard about those times.
If 8-5 is the default option, what's the point of it all?
I realize that, now that our worst suspicions about the program's diminished expectations have been confirmed on the record, the problem is ours if we continue to come back for more. I further realize that the PTB are (literally) banking on us continually coming back for more.
