I heard this morning that this is not the first time Manny has pulled this. Secondly a team player shows up on time for spring training. I can't believe that Manny is being accused of being a team player. Robinson Cano is on the DL hasn't played in a week he's at least going to show up at the game for the fans that voted for him. You mean to tell me that Manny couldn't do the same thing just showing up and tipping his cap for the fans. If that endangers his knee than he should be on the DL quit making excuses for him and whoever is voting for him mine as well stop because he is a selfish man who only thinks about himself.

I cannot believe some of the things I've heard in here. I may be a Yankee fan but I'm a human being first. Johnson is being a jerkoff. I don't care if we don't have all the facts. Some of the women bashing comments in here are blowing my mind. I have a son from a relationship when I was younger. His sperm donor is a piece of crap. I have watched my son be upset by empty promises on his part. Promises to be there and be a part of his life. Seeing your child happy is more important then any child support. Seeing your child loved by both parents is more important then any amount of money. I get a whole $200 a month WHEN he has a job. But I also pay more then that in daycare and counseling and sports. I have tried to give him a way out I have asked him to sign his rights over to my husband. My feeling is if he's not responsible enough to raise him or sign him over to someone who is. And if he's not willing to he damn well better pay for him. My husband and I have been doing the hard working in raising a responsible son. If I ever heard him speak the way most of you are I would be so disgusted and disappointed in him. As I'm sure your mothers would be.

I never said Jeter was dogging it but do I think he will play as hard as he would in the october no. He is a competitor of course he wants to win. Are any of these players as good now as they will be midseason? qbert72 your feeling is incorrect I'm not saying the WBC should be stopped I just don't think it is a true judge of baseball greatness. I'm actually watching it but I'm not putting too much stock into it regardless of which team wins.

If you want a credible attempt at a international baseball showdown you would not do so when all the athletes are out of shape. This is spring training time people. Pitchers aren't up to snuf. There are mercy rules and pitch counts. Please it's more like little league international baseball showdown.

I wasn't saying that only the USA had good players not playing. But how true is this tournament when the best closer in baseball isn't playing? Where's Barry Bonds in all his juiced up glory. These games aren't taken as serious as some of you would like to think. Bottom line is some of the greatest stars aren't even in it. Not just players what about managers. I'm sorry but each and every one of those players who are pros are worried about getting injured. So they won't play all out. Get this straight Jeter doesn't sacrifice a "potential world series win" for anything. His first and only responsibility is to the Yankees. Yeah this may be fun it may be an honor but it's not a world series win.

Come on is Al Leiter really the best pitcher America can put forwarded? NO. The timing is all wrong for this tournament. How true of a judge are these games when some of the best players don't play?

Don't forget the Raiders need a Quarterback. I can't see them going with Kerry Collins again.

I sure to the 13 year old boy it's a feel good story even if it was publicized. Regardless of why it was done it was still a good thing all around. Good on the boys part as well as George's.

vbgjr88 he gave the child $1,000 he replaced the money the child unselfishly gave up. Bottom line is he did a great thing. He didn't have to do anything. It wouldn't have created bad press nobody would have heard about the little boy from Arkansas. But of course there are always people that have to look for something negative in great deeds.

Wow what an amazingly unselfish child. Kudos to him.

Venice I hope you weren't meaning to say that I'm a bandwagon fan. The Yanks will always be my favorite team even if they were in last place. If I was a bandwagon fan I'd be a sox fan right after the dramatic way they won it all in 2004.

Venice-Thank you but it's not Paul O'neils fly it's Derek Jeter's lol. I love living here I love most Redsox fans too. We have a ton of fun giving each other crap. As for the Lakers I don't watch baketball. I watch football though and no I don't like the patriots. I think maybe I was just raised to be a shit starter.

All true New Englanders hate the Yankees, why should the kids be any different? I was born and raised in NH as were my parents we all love the Yankees. Thanks for letting me know that I'm not a true New Englander because I don't like your baseball team. I didn't know that was a requirement. I have seen loads of Yankee fans maybe it's because of arrogant red sox fans such as you that people become Yankee fans around here.

don-peyote the problem is we should be talking about the game for how it was played not for the crappy officiating and what would have beens or could have beens. It's one thing if the refs want to be nit picky but they need to be that way with both teams. Other then that you end up will the majority of FOOTBALL fans complaining. Then you have people calling each other names and getting pissed off. Hello people the NFL is who we should be pissed at.

I understand the Steeler fans not wanting to say there were bad calls. Who wants to admit that when your team just won the superbowl. I also understand the Seattle fans being really pissed about the game. They have every right to be pissed. No one can say if the outcome of the game would have been different without the calls. Everyone can have their own opinions but that's what they are just opinions. No one can look into the future and see that the outcome would be different. I have watched my team the 49ers be destroyed with the salary cap. I still watched every game of their pathetic season. But after this superbowl I'm happy they sucked. If it would have been them in this superbowl in place of either team I would have felt cheated as a fan. Winning a superbowl that will always be questioned or getting a severe screwing. The NFL really needs to shape up. I consider myself a pretty dedicated fan to watch the last 32 gamees of the 49ers has been difficult and frustrating. However after this superbowl I need to rethink my time spent watching this game.
