THE AUTONOMOUS NATION-STATE OF THE YES NETWORK

THERE'S A PROMO FOR 'YANKEES HOT STOVE' ON THE YES NETWORK (A SHOW DISCUSSING OFF SEASON ACTIVITIES FOR ALL TEAMS, WHICH SOUNDS GREAT). THE YES NETWORK CAN'T STAND THE YANKEES, SO WHY THE PROMO? TO PROMOTE THE FACE OF JACK CURRY, OF COURSE, AND TOM VERDUCCI, 2 CELEBRITY NATIONAL BASEBALL WRITERS. THIS SHOW IS FOR THE ESPN-TYPE OPERATION THE GUYS AT YES LOVE, NOT TO CLAIM THE SMALL AREA OF CIVILITY AND TRUTH YANKEE FANS NEED. NO YANKEE SHOULD EVER WATCH THIS NETWORK AGAIN. LIKE ESPN (OR CNN), THE YES NETWORK SETS A STRANGE AGENDA SUPPOSED TO REPRESENT A CONSTITUENCY, BUT NOT DOING SO. ANOTHER WEEK STUPIDLY LOOKING IN ON "YANKEES' HOT STOVE:"
  • LAST WEEK: TOM VERDUCCI AND JACK CURRY.
  • THIS WEEK: TOM VERDUCCI AND JACK CURRY.
  • IT'S NOT LIKELY YES NETWORK OFFICIALS ARE UNAWARE OF NUMEROUS AVAILABLE OPINIONS AND WRITINGS OF THESE 2. THEY'RE FINE IF YOU'RE ON DRUGS OR WATCHING ESPN. THEY'RE NOT WHAT A YANKEE FAN WANTS OR NEEDS TO SEE. WE'RE PAYING FOR THE NETWORK, AND SUPPOSEDLY VIEWING A PROGRAM ENTITLED "YANKEES' HOT STOVE."
  • THIS IS MERELY ANOTHER VEHICLE BY WHICH VERDUCCI AND CURRY CAN ENHANCE THEIR OWN CELEBRITY, AS THEY GAZE LOVINGLY INTO THE CAMERAS.
  • THE HOST, BOB LORENZ, SEEMS LIKE A PROFESSIONAL AND NICE GUY, BUT AS I'VE SAID BEFORE, HE HAS NO FEELING FOR THE YANKEES WHATSOEVER. IF THIS WEREN'T THE INTENTION OF YES NETWORK OFFICIALS, HE OBVIOUSLY WOULDN'T BE THERE.
  • I'M NOT A FAN OF ANY OTHER TEAM-AFFILIATED TV NETWORKS, BUT I DOUBT THEY'D FOIST 2 NATIONAL CELEBRITY 'HAIRDOS' ON THEIR FANS AND EXPECT THEM TO ACCEPT IT. (I UNDERSTAND BILL MADDEN IS SOMETIMES ON THE SHOW--THAT DOESN'T CHANGE ANYTHING).
  • I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT THE SHOW'S NEWS ABOUT OTHER TEAMS, I'M TALKING ABOUT THE OFFICIALS WHO DECIDED THE DIRECTION OF THE SHOW, HIRED THE PEOPLE TO DO IT, AND THAT IT'S MORE IN A PILE OF EVIDENCE THE YES NETWORK IS COMPLETELY CONTROLLED BY ESPN FANS/SYMPATHIZERS, WHAT HAVE YOU. THE YANKEES ARE GIVING THEIR ONE SMALL CHANCE AT TRUTH AWAY. THIS SHOW ONLY ALLOWS THE POLITICAL VIEWS OF ESPN/MLB, INC., TO FURTHER STIFLE THE REALITY OF CERTAIN YANKEE PLAYERS' REAL VALUE AND PLACE IN THE GAME IN FAVOR OF ENTRENCHED, POLITICAL BASEBALL MEDIA AND POST SEASON AWARDS VOTERS.
AS I'VE DOCUMENTED ON THIS BLOG, BASEBALL WRITERS' CAREERS WILL NOT ADVANCE IN MONEY-MAKING, PUBLICITY, EXPOSURE, OR GETTING INTO THE WRITERS' WING OF THE BASEBALL HOF UNLESS THEY WITHHOLD OR MODULATE CERTAIN INFORMATION ABOUT AT LEAST ONE LONG-TIME, KEY YANKEE PLAYER.
  • MR. STEINBRENNER, IT MAY BE TOO LATE, BUT PLEASE NOTICE THIS. PLEASE PUT A STOP TO IT. REPLACE THE MANAGEMENT OF THE YES NETWORK IMMEDIATELY.
P.S. Yes, I've written 2 lengthy, very detailed letters to YES Network officials with copies to Mr. Steinbrenner. One of them is posted on another blog I have, BaseballWritersAreUnsupervised.blogspot.com.
