    How many times do you have to be told that I'm not saying he is better?

    Why are Yankee fans so dense and defensive?

    Bet you go off the deep end when someone mentions that the team bought its titles.

    BTW, Benitez save PERCENTAGE is also better, so throw your wins theory out the window. As dumb as it was on any level.

    im done with this conversation,if you really think anyone in their right mind would take benitez over rivera your crazy.

    rabid met fans,now we bought our title,who did steinbrenner make the check out too.
    the mets havent bought every superstar they could?or is it the fact that they cant win with them that bothers you?

    even if rivera miss the entire season he is still a better pitcher.

    You must be a moron.

    I have stated 3 different times that I am not saying Benitez is better.

    Just as only a moron would argue that George hasn't bought his team.

    1st, 2nd, 3rd, lf, rf and just about the entire pitching staff was bought.

    There is roughly a 40 mil difference in payrol.

    Thats Giambi and Jeter with cash left over.

    And no it doesn't bother me, your the one numb to facts.

    im not numb to the fact,i was f-ng with you.
    of course we bought our team,dont forget we do have a lot of farm kids on this team,jeter,pettite,posada,mendoza(gone)soriano and bernie .these kids have done more to help us win than the "hired help".

    My bad for the manny post.

    But....the farm hands have not done more than the hired help. Jeter and Bernie have done plenty, but the team has been built on pitching and only Petite and Rivera have been keys there.

    BTW, Yankee fans always include Soriano in their home grown list. He was a FA that the Yankees out bid 18 or so teams for. Put him in the minors so that is where he came from but he was not a home grown product. Like El Duque, except for a shorter minor league stint.

    my point is really this.
    benitez needs another out pitch besides the fastball.
    every can hit a fastball.
