Joe Torre asking passing bicyclists on Brooklyn Bridge if they can pitch.


(click image to read copy)
The Yankees have lost 6 in a row
and are in last place, 5 and 1/2 games back of the Red Sox. Anybody who thinks George Michael Steinbrenner wouldn't fire god-like manager Joe Torre so soon in the season doesn't know their Yankeeography very well. If the Yankees get swept in the upcoming weekend series against Boston, what do you think'll be Steinbrenner's response? All of which makes these frequent ads in the Wall Street Journal for accounting firm J.H. Cohn all the more deliciously ironic. How Are You Managing?™ indeed.
previously in Yankees:
1. What every self-respecting Bleacher Creature will be wearing this Fall.
2. Alex, get upstairs and put your big pants on!
3. Yankee clubhouse soon to smell like whorehouse.
4. Is IT In YOU?

Is it me, or is he the size of King Kong in this ad? Was this photo taken before or after he ate all of the traffic on the bridge?

Torre: repeat after me: "Pitching is 90% of the game!"

The richest ballclub in the known universe and they couldn't go out and buy themselves a major league pitching rotation? They deserve the season they're gonna have.

I wish ads would stop using their taglines to ask me questions. "How are you managing?" None of your fucking business. "What's in your wallet?" Get your fucking hands off my ass.

They even asked me to share my thoughts about Raisin Bran. I, like everyone else, have had none in my lifetime. Just leave me alone!

Hey Joe,

Maybe if your father would've smacked the shit out of you a few more times, you'd be only 2 1/2 games out.

Do you really think Phineas T. Bluster even knows the Yanks have coughed up six in a row?
