Game 3: Blue Jays at Yankees

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Apr 03, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

YANKEES
Johnny Damon DH
Derek Jeter SS
Bobby Abreu RF
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Jason Giambi 1B
Robinson Cano 2B
Hideki Matsui LF
Jose Molina C
Melky Cabrera CF
Phil Hughes RHP

Notes: Thanks to Sam Borden for texting this to me from the clubhouse. … Matsui will make his 2008 debut in left field as Damon gets a day as the DH. … Posada (stiff right shoulder) remains out. … This is the 2008 debut for Phil Franchise, the noted right-hander and blogger. Hopefully he gets off to a good start and disposes of all the Johan Santana talk.

UPDATE, 5:16 p.m.: Sam just called with a few updates. Matsui is playing left because that’s where he’ll have to play once Melky is suspended. The hearing is supposed to be sometime early next week, perhaps Monday. Why MLB has taken so long to deal with this is a mystery. … Posada is expected to play tomorrow, probably as the DH. … Girardi talked about the importance of having a quality backup in Molina. … The manager also said he thinks the bad blood with the Rays is over and that the weekend should be peaceful. Speaking of which, did you know that Eliot Johnson made that team? Interesting.

UPDATE, 5:24 p.m.: Further word from Sam is that McGowan is pitching despite his flu-like symptoms of a day ago.

UPDATE, 8:13 p.m.: I’m listening to the game at home while doing some work and just heard Suzyn Waldman give a lengthy defense of Joba Chamberlain and criticize those reporters who asked Frank Thomas about the fist-pumping reliever on Wednesday.

Then she said that “nobody reported” that Joba had a poster of Thomas in his room when he was growing up.

Well, it was reported on this blog yesterday

and in The Journal News today.

The New York Times had it, too. Now that I check, so did the Star-Ledger.

UPDATE, 8:46 p.m.: Nice job by Phil Hughes tonight. He’s given up three hits. One was in the infield and the other was a pop-up double that landed in no-man’s land. Yet he’s down 2-0 as the Yankees struggle again offensively.

Hughes so far: 6 3 2 2 1 4. The only real mistake he made was walking Marco Scutaro with two outs in the fifth inning. Hopefully the Yankees can get him off the hook.

UPDATE, 9:01 p.m.: The Yankees scratched for two runs and tied it up. Be interesting to see whether Girardi leaves Hughes in to face 6-7-8. They’re 0 for 5 against him tonight. This could be where the innings limits have an impact on the game.

UPDATE, 9:03 p.m.: Hughes is out and it’s Billy Traber against the lefty Overbay. Nice outing for Hughes.

UPDATE, 9:36 p.m.: 2nd and 3rd, one out with Abreu and A-Rod up. You have to take the lead now. When’s the last time the Yankees had two bunts in a row?

UPDATE, 9:47 p.m.: First and second, no outs. The Yankees played for one run with the second bunt and that’s what they got. Now we’ll see if Mariano can make it stand up.

    Commenting guidelines:

    1. Ignore the trolls. Every blog has them and in our case they’re mostly Red Sox fans. Just don’t respond, period. They will go away.

    2. Do not write “first!” if you’re the first person to comment on a post. This isn’t second grade.

    3. If the Yankees give up a run or lose a game, please refrain from declaring the season is over. You just look stupid. Or did you forget what happened last year and the year before that and the year before that? One pitch or one game does not a season make. Just relax.

    4. Writing, “Yesssss!!!” after somebody gets a hit is a not a quality post.

    5. Don’t post in ALL CAPS or in bold to make your point. Try writing something intelligent instead. That works better.

    6. I’m all in favor of you referencing a story from another paper or web site. Just please note your source so the writer gets proper credit. And don’t post entire stories, post a link.

    7. If there is a persistent knucklehead or two, please send me an e-mail letting me know who the person is, an example of their idiocy and the time of their post and I’ll see what I can do.

    It sucks that I am working, I am going to miss Phil’s 08 debut tonight… Enjoy your days off Pete.

  3. 12 year old kid April 3rd, 2008 at 3:52 pm

    wow the lineup so early! that’s great, Thanks Pete, I love your blog.

  4. Ace April 3rd, 2008 at 3:52 pm

    They will need more then 6 runs to win this game

  5. saucY April 3rd, 2008 at 3:55 pm

    “wow the lineup so early! ”

    seriously. i already had my coat halfway on, ready to go home, then realized it wasn’t even 4 PM…. :|

  6. Jeff April 3rd, 2008 at 3:57 pm

    Hopefully our bats get it going tonight.

    I hoped Posada would be back but I guess playng it safe is the right way to go so early in the season.

  7. gayle April 3rd, 2008 at 3:59 pm

    Do we know yet if McGowan is on for tonight??

  8. Drive 4-5 April 3rd, 2008 at 3:59 pm

    I wish that Shelley had served his supension these first 3 games. The Yanks are facing 3 right handers nd it wasn’t likely that he’d be in the lineup. Of course, that’s easy for me to say. I’m sure Shelley feels he was unished too harshly and wants his day in court.

  9. Drive 4-5 April 3rd, 2008 at 4:00 pm

    gayle,

    McGowan may not pitch?

  10. rodg12 April 3rd, 2008 at 4:00 pm

    What’s the weather going to be like for the game from any of the New Yorkers out there?

  11. Fran April 3rd, 2008 at 4:00 pm

    Thanks for the line-up. One if Cashman’s key moves last year was picking up Molina. As least now when Posada is out we have a very capable catcher offensively and defensively.

  12. rodg12 April 3rd, 2008 at 4:01 pm

    Drive:

    McGowan has been reported to have the flu and may not make the start tonight.

  13. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 4:01 pm

    McGowan was sick yesterday…

  14. Joe from Long Island April 3rd, 2008 at 4:02 pm

    I would have thought that Shelley would get into a game soon, just to avoid rust. Show’s what I know.

  15. Hugh Stacks April 3rd, 2008 at 4:04 pm

    Right now its overcast in midtown, but im not sure if rain is in the forecast. IMHO, Cano, Giambi and Matsui have to start having better ab’s. I will even take a few fly outs to right from Matsui tonight.

  16. gayle April 3rd, 2008 at 4:05 pm

    Drive–

    You better hope he does for your fantasty team lol. You already lost 2 players today due to injury a 3rd may secure my win lol.

  17. CMB April 3rd, 2008 at 4:05 pm

    Dustin McGowan will take the ball today.

    OT: First person to use the words “Detroit” and “chemistry” in the same sentence gets a cookie.

  19. Dan from Mass April 3rd, 2008 at 4:10 pm

    Yesssss!!!

    Sorry, I just couldn’t resist.

  20. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 4:10 pm

    The chemistry department at the Detroit Institute of Higher Learning received a grant from The Bill Bixby foundation. Cookie please.

  21. nettles April 3rd, 2008 at 4:11 pm

    The Detroit Tigers are a chemistry experiment gone horribly wrong.

    I like white choc./macadamia nut…thanks.

  22. Drive 4-5 April 3rd, 2008 at 4:11 pm

    gayle,

    VERY funny! lol

    I tried a different tact from the other fantasy league I’m in. I went for offense with my first picks. I’m learning to regret it lol

  23. wood is good April 3rd, 2008 at 4:12 pm

    It’s turned overcast, but according to good ol’ accuweather.com it seems rain won’t come until after after midnight. It’s sure gonna be cold though! Good thing I brought something warm to wear to the game tonight.

    Gotta say I’m excited to see Phil tonight, and hope he’s sharp. It’d be nice to see the Yankee bats wake up just a bit more….

    Hmmm, wonder how Jorge’s shoulder is actually feeling….

  24. hmmm April 3rd, 2008 at 4:12 pm

    sometimes i listen to Detroit Rock City while i play with my chemistry set.

  25. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 4:12 pm

    Gitmo,

    You get a stale oatmeal cookie.

  26. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 4:13 pm

    Im hoping Mcgowen pitches today and not some no namer. As our recent history sugests. Rookies and first timers give us fits. So bring on Dustin!!

  27. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 4:14 pm

    Yesssss!!!

    Sorry, I just couldn’t resist.

    NOOOO!!!

  28. gayle April 3rd, 2008 at 4:14 pm

    Drive when I realized that you get more points for a win or save (10) versus if you go 4-4 with singles you only get 4 I realized pitching means more

  29. Drive 4-5 April 3rd, 2008 at 4:18 pm

    With potential rainouts Friday and perhaps Saturday, should the Yanks skip IPK in the rotation this time around? They could save some of his innings for later in the season.

  30. Hideki Balboni April 3rd, 2008 at 4:27 pm

    The Posada situation is bigger news than anyone seems to think. A balky shoulder for a catcher is very bad, obviously, and the problem usually lingers for a while. This is not good at all.

  31. TKinDC April 3rd, 2008 at 4:28 pm

    Is it going to be a rainout tonight? It is coming down in buckets in our nation’s capital.

  32. mel April 3rd, 2008 at 4:28 pm

    First!!!

    How long before this is played out on Law & Order?

    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/.....id=3326985

  33. Hugh April 3rd, 2008 at 4:29 pm

    My leagues have always had a cap on starts per week so thats why pitching gave you more points.

  34. rodg12 April 3rd, 2008 at 4:31 pm

    Thanks for the weather updates.

  35. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 4:31 pm

    previous
    mel,
    Damn mel. That was 2 threads ago. Keep up will ya. You dont want Denver. Anyone else but them. Thats why id almost prefer being a 3 or 4 seed. As i think 7 and 8 are going to give the top seeds fits.

  36. VTyankee fan April 3rd, 2008 at 4:31 pm

    Phil had a strong spring and looks ready to go

  37. Yankees Chick April 3rd, 2008 at 4:33 pm

    sad to see that Posada is out again… I don’t like that one bit!

    also, i’ll be doing a live blog of the game on my site if anyone wants to join the fun :)

    GO HUGHSIE! I’ve got a good feeling about his season debut; he started to really get focused towards the end of ST.

  38. Fernando Alejandro (Respect Jeter's Gangster) April 3rd, 2008 at 4:33 pm

    Not for nothing, but Shelley could have served his suspension by now.

  39. Hugh April 3rd, 2008 at 4:34 pm

    Hideki Balboni…

    Good thing we have a serviceable back up catcher in Milona. one of the best moves made in the off season. The Yankees havent had a decent back up catcher since Jorge was Girardi’s back up.

  40. Fernando Alejandro (Respect Jeter's Gangster) April 3rd, 2008 at 4:36 pm

    Hugh,

    We got Molina mid-season last year. It was a good move signing him though.

  41. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 4:38 pm

    Fernando,
    Good point. You would think the Yankees knew what the pitching matchups were and would have had him serve already.

    About my elbow/tricep injury. I took your advice and went away from scull crushers and did closed bench and dips. Aint working. Ill just do what iv done for years and deal with it. Thanks for the advice anyways.

  42. Andrea April 3rd, 2008 at 4:38 pm

    Somehow, it’s ok that Posada is resting with Molina as his backup. I feel ok.

  43. MikeEff- Shelley, Every Day April 3rd, 2008 at 4:39 pm

    fatso and fruitloops are STILL talking about Joba’s fist-pump.

  44. gayle April 3rd, 2008 at 4:40 pm

    With this cold damp weather resting Jorge is the smart way to go we have a lot of game with minimal rest

  45. pat April 3rd, 2008 at 4:40 pm

    Fernando

    I thought the same thing about Shelley’s suspension.

    It also would have eliminated the chance that the Yankeess would have to play with a 23 man squad for a few days if one of the guys served it while one appealed it.

  46. Fernando Alejandro (Respect Jeter's Gangster) April 3rd, 2008 at 4:41 pm

    S.o.S.27,

    There goes my career in sports medicine.

  47. Andrea April 3rd, 2008 at 4:41 pm

    It was his first opening day. He opened at single A last year. The Blue Jays didn’t care, why should they? Shut it M&MD.

  48. gayle April 3rd, 2008 at 4:43 pm

    Mike–

    if I have learned one thing from listening to those two over the years is once they get a bee in their bonnet about something they will not let it go and no matter what anyone says to try and convince them otherwise they are always right.

    Doesnt matter that Frank Thomas and Vernon Wells had no problem with it.Doesnt matter that if they had been paying attention at all last year they would realize that Joba did the same thing not everytime but I certainly saw it a few times.

  49. Fernando Alejandro (Respect Jeter's Gangster) April 3rd, 2008 at 4:43 pm

    Pat,

    Yeah, I mean even if Shelley gets it knocked down to one game the fact that he could have served all three in these games he’s been benched makes it a moot point.

  50. Yankees Ben April 3rd, 2008 at 4:44 pm

    Andrea what are you talking about? (They?)

  51. longtime April 3rd, 2008 at 4:45 pm

    i can’t handle M & M anymore just too damn arrogant, now i’m listening to Kaye he’s no bargin better than those 2 idiots.

  52. MikeEff- Shelley, Every Day April 3rd, 2008 at 4:46 pm

    you’re so right gayle…i don’t even know why i let it bother me.

  53. MikeEff- Shelley, Every Day April 3rd, 2008 at 4:48 pm

    yankees Ben, Andrea was responding my remark about mike and lapdog

  54. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 4:48 pm

    I think just to piss off the media and critics. The next time Joba strikes out a batter to end the inning. He should do a fist pump,scream followed by grabbing his jersey with both hands and pull it out show who he plays for. Hell just beat the bat boy to the bat and do a Clemens(throw it back at the hitter).

    After all that is said and done. Make an announcement that your no longer going to do celebrations.

    S.o.S.27,

    There goes my career in sports medicine.

    Dont give up quite yet. Start recommending b-12. I heard it helps cure everything.

  56. mel April 3rd, 2008 at 4:50 pm

    SoS,

    I know imagine if those 2 could put it together for a season? Hollinger said, “Nobody else’s games look more ragged. Is this the NBA or the Rucker League?”.

    BTW, who else thought that Philly had this game lost in the 2nd?

    Poor Tom Gordon. Worked a scoreless inning to bring his ERA down to the low 30′s.

    Does anyone else find it impossible to read a NL box score? Hieroglyophics and sanskrit are easier to read.

  57. Hugh April 3rd, 2008 at 4:51 pm

    I know I said it earlier, but I really dont like Giambi batting behind A-Rod. Until Giambi proves he is a threat again, I wouldnt have him in that slot. I see the following sceanrio alot with Giambi in back of Alex instead of w alk off hit.

    Bottom of the ninth, Yankees down by one run, 1 out. Rodriguez at the plate…intentional walk….Giambi grounds into a 7 man shift ending the game on a double play.

    Last night the Jays had the ENTIRE infield on the right side of second base and he hit right into it once again. I mean seriously, I have no idea how you pay somebody 23 million dollars and he cant even hit the ball to a part of field where NOBODY is playing. I dont care what you people say about his OBP and OPS, Giambi sucks

  58. Yankees Ben April 3rd, 2008 at 4:51 pm

    Mike thanks I got it by now, just tuned in to these idiots

  59. hmmm April 3rd, 2008 at 4:56 pm

    “I dont care what you people say about his OBP and OPS, Giambi sucks”

    seriously.

    if you’re going to bring facts into the argument instead of basing your judgement on one AB, there is no place for you here.

  60. hmmm April 3rd, 2008 at 4:57 pm

    “The Yankees havent had a decent back up catcher since Jorge was Girardi’s back up.”

    not true.

  61. Joe April 3rd, 2008 at 4:58 pm

    Hugh, the Jays didn’t have the entire infield on the right side. They just moved Scutaro over. Eckstein stayed in the SS position, where the 3B usually is in the Giambi shift. The idiot Kay got it wrong. On the replay you can barely see Eckstein on the SS side of 2B

  62. Hugh April 3rd, 2008 at 4:59 pm

    One at bat???? I guess you havent watched Jason Giambi for the past couple of years.

  63. mel April 3rd, 2008 at 4:59 pm

    This is the play by play:

    Jimmy Rollins singled, Victorino out on sacrifice to third (Rollins to 3rd), Utley IBB, Howard IBB, game over on a 4 pitch BB to Werth.

    Doh!

  64. Hugh April 3rd, 2008 at 5:00 pm

    hmm, who was the decnt back up catcher sice Jorge was Girardi’s? and by decent I mean a guy who could hit over 220

  65. Global Warming April 3rd, 2008 at 5:01 pm

    “One at bat???? I guess you havent watched Jason Giambi for the past couple of years.”

    When healthy, there is no reason to keep him out of the lineup.

  66. Hugh April 3rd, 2008 at 5:02 pm

    Joe, I didnt see the replay, but I did see Eckstein directly in back of second base…doesnt really matter, thoguh, the point is Jason Giambi can only hit one pitch, in one location to one part of the field. Whens the last time you saw Giambi hit a ball to the left of second base?

  67. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 5:04 pm

    Hugh,
    Never thought about that scenario before. Hell he was the most expensive bench warmer in the end of last year. I say make him the most expensive bunter. That would make them due away with the shift.

  68. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 5:06 pm

    Cashman is on 1050ESPN people !

  69. hmmm April 3rd, 2008 at 5:07 pm

    “hmm, who was the decnt back up catcher sice Jorge was Girardi’s? and by decent I mean a guy who could hit over 220″

    John Flaherty in 2003 and 2004.

  70. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 5:07 pm

    Girardi on WFAN !

  71. Global Warming April 3rd, 2008 at 5:08 pm

    Flaherty DUH!

  72. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 5:08 pm

    Since the lineup has been struggling to score runs. Why not have Baby Huey get some at bats? More energy is good.

  73. Jimmy 27 April 3rd, 2008 at 5:09 pm

    thanks Brandon

  74. hmmm April 3rd, 2008 at 5:09 pm

    “One at bat???? I guess you havent watched Jason Giambi for the past couple of years.”

    i watched him put up excellent numbers in 2005 and 2006 while being injured last year.

    not sure what you mean. last year? yes, he wasn’t great.

    last couple of years? gotta disagree.

  75. Mehdi in SF April 3rd, 2008 at 5:09 pm

    What about the mighty Arsenal. Are there any rules about talking about them?

    Anyways, come on Franchise. Let’s get the the 27 train back on track.

  76. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 5:11 pm

    Girardi lied to him straight up

    Girardi: to tell you the truth Mike I didn’t see it

  77. Clare April 3rd, 2008 at 5:12 pm

    Brandon,

    What was the question?

  78. The J Train April 3rd, 2008 at 5:12 pm

    SOS, its ridiculous that a guy making the money he does cant lay down a bunt or slap a ball to a part of the field where nobody is playing. Look, I really like Giambi as a person (ive had the pleasure of hanging out with him and he’s a great guy)…but not as my number 5 hitter in back of Alex. Until he proves he can be a force once again, he should not be in that slot.

  79. Stephen April 3rd, 2008 at 5:13 pm

    I think the lineup’s struggling because they’ve been facing great pitching. Five runs in two games against legitimate No. 1 starters is no cause for concern.

  80. raymagnetic â„¢ April 3rd, 2008 at 5:13 pm

    “Since the lineup has been struggling to score runs. Why not have Baby Huey get some at bats? More energy is good.”

    They’re struggling to score runs after 2 games? Facing 2 of the best pitchers in the game when they’re on? Baby Huey would have struck out 3 times if he had played yesterday, seriously.

  81. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 5:14 pm

    Clare, refering to Joba’s fist pump

  82. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 5:14 pm

    hmmm,
    Good to see you posting more than once on a thread. Hey,i read your comments on posting on some other sites. I didnt really understand what they meant(abbreviated). But hopefully the trolls dont have hybernate away from this blog. Keep bringing it. Enjoy what you bring to the table.

  83. raymagnetic â„¢ April 3rd, 2008 at 5:14 pm

    “SOS, its ridiculous that a guy making the money he does cant lay down a bunt or slap a ball to a part of the field where nobody is playing.”

    I forget that all of those bunt base hits in Oakland is what got him his contract. *Yawn*

  84. The J Train April 3rd, 2008 at 5:16 pm

    John Flaherty??? I guess that lone hit he had against the red sox in jeters catch game made him a decent hitter. You guys are crazy, he was horrible

  85. The J Train April 3rd, 2008 at 5:18 pm

    ray, I know he wasnt paid to bunt, but at this stage he shouldnt be hitting 5th behind the greatest player in the game.

  86. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 5:18 pm

    I’m sorry but in reference to Flatherty he sucked at hitting worse than Will Nieves

  87. vinny-b April 3rd, 2008 at 5:19 pm

    no he didn’t.

  88. The J Train April 3rd, 2008 at 5:19 pm

    and ray, he actually went the other way when he was in Oakland

  89. Global Warming April 3rd, 2008 at 5:20 pm

    “John Flaherty??? I guess that lone hit he had against the red sox in jeters catch game made him a decent hitter. You guys are crazy, he was horrible”

    You do realize we are talking about a backup catcher right?

    If you look at his production in limited ABs compared to other backup catchers, he was pretty solid.

    Heck I wish we could get those type of numbers year in year out but we don’t. Haven’t since.

  90. Rupert Jones April 3rd, 2008 at 5:20 pm

    Stop using the term “Phil Franchise.” It’s silly… and pretty stupid. Wait until he produces before giving Phil a silly nickname.

  91. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 5:21 pm

    Baby Huey would have struck out 3 times if he had played yesterday, seriously.

    Raymag-come on. Give me some slack here. I know we faced to top notch pitchers and all. But Matsui and Damon havnt looked quit right yet. Im not so sure that he would have struck out 3 times either. He was one of the most patient and best hitters in spring(i know its just spring). I just like the energy he brings and the power threat the he is. I just hate to see him rott on the bench. Hopefully he’ll get his chance soon and Girardi not do what Torre did last year to young bullpen pitchers. Sit them a couple weeks till they were ice cold. Were on the same side.

  92. Global Warming April 3rd, 2008 at 5:22 pm

    Heck he even outproduces Girardis best years here and Girardi had more AB’s as he was splitting the job.

    Do a little research please.

    Flaherty was the man.

  93. The J Train April 3rd, 2008 at 5:24 pm

    ok Global, whatever you say…and when did I ever say Girardi was good?

  94. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 5:24 pm

    Stop using the term “Phil Franchise.” It’s silly… and pretty stupid. Wait until he produces before giving Phil a silly nickname.

    How about HUGHES YOUR DADDY.

    Have you guys forgotten Kelly Stinnett? Best hitting catcher since Mike Piazza.

  96. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 5:27 pm

    Since when is Shawn Chacon a starter with Houston!! I thought he was still at Pittsburgh?

  97. TKinDC April 3rd, 2008 at 5:27 pm

    Did anyone listen to Cashman – did he say anything interesting? Girardi on the FAN was pretty vanilla.

  98. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 5:27 pm

    John Flaherty with the Yanks. I have to admit its not as bad as i initially thought.

    2003 Yankees 40 105 16 28 8 0 4 0 14 4 1 19 5 1 1 6 .267 .297 .457
    2004 Yankees 47 127 11 32 9 0 6 1 16 5 2 25 2 0 1 5 .252 .286 .465

  99. gayle April 3rd, 2008 at 5:27 pm

    I would hope that if the hearing is on MOnday and that they uphold the 3 games that at least for Melky he can start to serve MOnday as would hate to have him miss any of the Sox series

  100. Thomas Robust April 3rd, 2008 at 5:27 pm

    For some reason when I try writing here it takes a while to get posted on the good days, on other days my posts don’t get posted at all. All other LoHud blogs the post gets posted right away. Can it be that I am somewhat blocked from this blog? Is there a way to change it? I’m a Yankees fan and never bothered other blogers here. Please fix it if you can. Thanks Pete, Hope you read this. Best blog on the planet LoHud Yankees.

  101. saucY April 3rd, 2008 at 5:28 pm

    “and by decent I mean a guy who could hit over 220″

    2003 – 267 (OPS+ 97)
    2004 – 252 (OPS+ 93)
    he stunk offensively in 2005.

  102. The J Train April 3rd, 2008 at 5:28 pm

    kelly stinnett, bwhahahahahaha…that doesnt say much for my boy Brian who was actually sent back to AAA in favor of Stinnett…who the cards pulled off of his couch….last season….OUCH

  103. mm April 3rd, 2008 at 5:29 pm

    McGowan’s under the weather? Then the yankees must go for the jugular… None of that… lets not bunt cause his ankle’s bloody nonsense. They gotta wear this guy out tonight

  104. mel April 3rd, 2008 at 5:32 pm

    Good for Girardi if he lied about it. He was probably given a heads up on their opinion. He doesn’t need to get into a tussle with two clowns over it, especially since it didn’t bother Toronto.

    If there’s a problem with Joba’s fist pumps, it’ll be addressed privately.

  105. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 5:34 pm

    Evening everyone! My presentation went great–it was a moot court thing and I got to be the judge, so I got to yell at people and get class credit for it!

    Anyway, let’s see what the Yankee offense does tonight against a pitcher not named Halladay or Burnett, shall we?

    Oh, and my personal philosophy: As long as you aren’t down more runs than outs left, no reason to get all mopey.

  106. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 5:34 pm

    And Chacon is pitching well for god’s sake…

  107. Hugh April 3rd, 2008 at 5:35 pm

    all I can say about Flaherty is, sometimes numbers do lie.

  108. Phil Hughes is Saved and will be fine! Goodness.. April 3rd, 2008 at 5:37 pm

    Wow, I’m nervous for Phil. lol
    Hope he does well tonight. :)

  109. Blargh April 3rd, 2008 at 5:38 pm

    “all I can say about Flaherty is, sometimes numbers do lie.”

    Numbers say nothing
    Interpretations of the numbers on the other hand, do all the talking

    Flaherty’s two good years as a Yankee had lower OBP but better slugging than Girardi’s years as a Yankee

  110. longtime April 3rd, 2008 at 5:39 pm

    HUGHES YOUR DADDY I like that, that’s a wrap

  111. mel April 3rd, 2008 at 5:39 pm

    Backup catchers are like backup QBs. If they could start, they would be.

    That being said. I really, really like Molina. I feel comfortable knowing he’s in for Posada. As Goldmember used to say, “He’s a keeper.”

  112. Fernando Alejandro (Respect Jeter's Gangster) April 3rd, 2008 at 5:40 pm

    Forget Chacon, former Yankee Tim Redding is pitching shutouts. Tim Redding!

  113. kylelitke April 3rd, 2008 at 5:42 pm

    I swear they just said on WFAN that McGowan is NOT starting, but I may have misheard.

  114. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 5:45 pm

    Now that we’ve solved the better hitting catchers dilema. All i want to know is which one of Stinnett,Nieves,Flaherty,the one with the pornstache from philly and Molina would win in a foor race?
    IMO
    1.flaherty
    2.nieves
    3.stinnett
    4.pornstache
    5 Molina
    Can we all agree that Molina would finish last?

  115. Mark Alan April 3rd, 2008 at 5:46 pm

    I’m not over the Whatever Rays. While I don’t want to see violence, I do want to witness some kick arse baseball, with the Yankees reducing the Rays to rubble.

    I don’t like the Rays.

    That’s part of my season, and I’m sticking to it.

  116. Sean Serritella YankeesDaily April 3rd, 2008 at 5:47 pm

    First! Just kidding. I wasn’t first anyway. I’m more excited for this game than the past two games because Phil Hughes is pitching and he’s from the farm.

  117. Jimmy 27 April 3rd, 2008 at 5:47 pm

    Darkhorse – Sal Fasano

  118. mel April 3rd, 2008 at 5:49 pm

    SoS,

    Sal Fasano (w/ the Jays now) would finish dead last and would be lapped by Molina.

  119. Fernando Alejandro (Respect Jeter's Gangster) April 3rd, 2008 at 5:51 pm

    I think Bengie’s slower than Jose, but none of those Molina brothers are particularly fleet of foot.

  120. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 5:51 pm

    Pornstache=Sal Fasano thanks Jimmy!!

  121. mel April 3rd, 2008 at 5:53 pm

    Molina’s got to be the most common name in baseball.

  122. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 5:54 pm

    mel,
    Unless Salstache has a broken leg today. Its hard to believe any of the Molina’s(accept maybe the one in st.louis)would finish second to last to anyone. Instead of last.

  123. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 5:54 pm

    I don’t which one of them would win, but I know all of them would probably lap me. Multiple times. Yeah, it’s not a particularly pretty site. Oh well.

    Anyway, I’m with Sean. Can’t wait to see Phil pitch.

  124. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 5:55 pm

    Mel–I would argue Cabrera.

  125. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 5:57 pm

    Changing the subject a bit.

    Whats worse than an athlete speaking in third person? Chad Johnson has to learn the word “I” or “Me” can be used in place of your name.

  126. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 6:01 pm

    Rabecca,
    I guess P.E.in high school stopped you from getting that 4.0 GPA. I would have loved to trade you Social Studies for p.e. You do my work, while i run that mile.

    Thanks for trying to help me on that computer problem. Went with the original instead.

  127. Russell NY April 3rd, 2008 at 6:01 pm

    “Last night the Jays had the ENTIRE infield on the right side of second base and he hit right into it once again. I mean seriously, I have no idea how you pay somebody 23 million dollars and he cant even hit the ball to a part of field where NOBODY is playing.”

    He has a point lol.

    But you give a guy an outrageous contract like in hopes he will produce well above his cost in his early, prime years of the contract. You think we will be looking for video-game type numbers when A-Rod turns 42 and is making 28mil/year? Then again, we are paying A-Rod for his homerun chase and the attendance/attention that will bring.

  128. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 6:02 pm

    SoS: It certainly didn’t help! However, the work I had to do in my history classes nearly killed me on its own, I don’t think I could take on another student’s load! Anyway, when I got to do Yoga and sleep for an hour…that was heaven, especially senior year when I had gym first.

    And you are very welcome.

  129. Fernando Alejandro (Respect Jeter's Gangster) April 3rd, 2008 at 6:03 pm

    Mel,

    The majority of the Molina’s are all brothers…and all catchers. There’s another Molina whose also a catcher but not related to them…yet.

  130. Jimmy 27 April 3rd, 2008 at 6:03 pm

    Goin to the game tonight-hope its not too cold.
    Phil will be great.
    Go Yanks!

  131. Jax April 3rd, 2008 at 6:06 pm

    Hopefully Hughes can keep his pitch count down and mix in all his pitches. I want to see more then fastball and curve.

  132. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 6:09 pm

    Fernando,
    Im not sure if your talking about the Yadier. He is related to Bengie and Jose. If not,than i know the reason for the common last name. They know having a last name of Molina will give them the best chance to make the bigs. So they change their name in High School and the rest is history.

    Note to self. Go to the courts tomorrow and change name to Rodriquez.

  133. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 6:09 pm

    Is it me or is there something VERY not right about the phrase “and the Royals sweep the Tigers”?

  134. Don Vito A. Bellamo April 3rd, 2008 at 6:10 pm

    OK…so THIS is the game that the Yankees beat down the Jays 12-2 !!!

  135. mel April 3rd, 2008 at 6:11 pm

    Fernando,

    I noticed there was another catcher.

    That’s why I wanted Bronson Sardinha to stick. I think that it’s pretty cool to have 3 brothers in baseball, even if it’s in the minors.

    6 Molina’s. Only the 3 brothers are in the majors. And yes, there’s a Gustavo who catches, a 2B, and a LF.

    Rebecca, 10 Cabreras! 6 on MLB team, 2 are pitchers for the O’s.

  136. hmmm April 3rd, 2008 at 6:12 pm

    “all I can say about Flaherty is, sometimes numbers do lie.”

    hilarious.

    Flaherty sucked.
    no, he didn’t.
    yes, he did.
    here are some facts.
    the facts are wrong.

  137. mel April 3rd, 2008 at 6:14 pm

    Only 6 of 16 Joneses are on rosters.

    Only 2 of 23 Smiths are on rosters.

  138. Don Vito A. Bellamo April 3rd, 2008 at 6:17 pm

    Rebecca, are you serious ? The Royals sweep the Tigers is music to my ears. The Tigers are one of my least favorite AL teams…..I don’t ever feel sorry for the dang Tigers… :-)

  139. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 6:19 pm

    Mel: I wonder if we can name them all?

    Melky
    Daniel
    Orlando

  140. Jeremy April 3rd, 2008 at 6:19 pm

    Regarding Flaherty, I can’t say a player with a sub-.300 OBP is an adequate hitter, even as a backup catcher.

    His SLG certainly took me by surprise though.

  141. mel April 3rd, 2008 at 6:19 pm

    Rebecca,

    I’m not to swift myself, but I’m pretty sure I could beat Fasano.

    Now I’m picturing the sausage races as the Brewers game. I can see Fasano losing that race, too.

    Hey. Who was that who hit the hot dog girl in the race with their bat? It was so bad at the time, but it’s pretty hilarious thinking about it now.

  142. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 6:21 pm

    The Tigers are one of my least favorite AL teams…..I don’t ever feel sorry for the dang Tigers…

    I have to say i never thought twice about Detroit till Sheffield got there. Now i hope they never make the playoffs till he retires. I guess i look at it as at least im not hoping he gets hurt.

  143. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 6:25 pm

    Umm. S.o.S. You do know that Sheffield got hurt tonight, right?

  144. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 6:25 pm

    Flaherty sucked.
    no, he didn’t.
    yes, he did.
    here are some facts.
    the facts are wrong.

    continuing the future of this arguement.
    stats are wrong.
    no thier not.
    your just a stat geek.
    your just blind.
    i call it like i see it.
    numbers dont lie.
    your wrong.
    no your wrong.
    forget it. agree to disagree.

    Ill stop now.

  145. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 6:26 pm

    don’t forget the Guillen’s – they been confusing my friend the Royal’s friend all day…

  146. Doreen April 3rd, 2008 at 6:26 pm

    I heard on the radio that Sheffield got hurt in the game. He was 1 for 3, but tore a something in his finger and exited the clubhouse wearing a splint. This was reported on XM MLB, the Dibble and Kennedy Show.

    Hey, the Tigers are probably going to figure it out. I wouldn’t start gloating just yet. :) But I will say it is “nice” for other favored teams to get off to a slow start.

  147. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 6:27 pm

    Hope Jorge’s back soon…but Molina is much better than the likes of Stinett, Fasano, Nieves, etc.

  148. Fran April 3rd, 2008 at 6:27 pm

    Mel – I spoke to my niece about NYU and got some information. If you are still interested send your email address to me at Fran0322@aol.com and I’ll email you what I found out.

  149. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 6:28 pm

    Hey. Who was that who hit the hot dog girl in the race with their bat? It was so bad at the time, but it’s pretty hilarious thinking about it now.

    Thats the only way that molina beats fasano.

    rebecca-are you serious. Sheffield got hurt? How bad and how long? Now your probably think i did vodoo or jinx him sub contiounsly someway.

  150. Doreen April 3rd, 2008 at 6:29 pm

    Time to switch computers. I sure hope the rain holds off until after the game. Bad enough that it’s coldish and raw feeling out there. I would guess that McGowan is not as bad as we may have wanted to hope, flu-wise. Yankee bats need to start heating up, though.

  151. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 6:30 pm

    S.o.S. Tendon on his finger. Don’t know how bad or for how long but I imagine they’ll mention it during a game break tonight.

  152. Fran April 3rd, 2008 at 6:33 pm

    Doreen – I heard the weather should be fine for tonight (rain after midnight). Tomorrow nights’s game may be a problem weather wise.

  153. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 6:34 pm

    It’s a torn tendon but Sheff says he can play through it. It’s apparently pretty swollen though. I predict 15 day DL.

  154. Rubin April 3rd, 2008 at 6:35 pm

    Oh I cant wait for the game to start. I love Hughes, and when he was put into an offer, I was ready to go down to Tampa and curse out Hank. It would have been a disgrace to deal Hughes, IPK and Melky for Johan. An absolute disgrace. If we really wanted Santana, we could have gotten him for much less. Just look at the Mets deal. Im anxious to see Phil this season, he pitched great in the ALDS. I cant wait to see him pitch!

  155. Fleas (Hillary Clinton is as plastic as Mitt Romney) April 3rd, 2008 at 6:39 pm

    If I hear one more person say that, “Joba was out of line (i.e. fist pumping)” …

    I guess they would rather people only have enthusiasm in big games..

    Joba is obviously an emotional person, and when I saw him do it, I said to myself that he really IS emotional .. wow. However, I loved see a yankee showing some emotion.. I’ve been saying that they don’t have fire for a long time..

    Please JOba, continue to fist pump all you want.. and bring it on..

  156. Jaewon April 3rd, 2008 at 6:42 pm

    Could someone please explain to me the Joba inning situation.

    I know the Yankees want to build up his arm slowly, and they also want him for the whole season, which seems to be why starting in the bullpen makes sense. But I don’t understand how many innings they want him to get to or when it would make sense for him to transition to the rotation.

    Thanks.

  157. Jaewon April 3rd, 2008 at 6:43 pm

    Fleas: amen

  158. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 6:43 pm

    you know – if he’s fist pumping striking out like Tony Pena Jr (no offense – just the first name I thought of) in a 6-0 game, then I get it – but Frank Thomas in a close game… GMAB – he should be pumped

  159. Phil Hughes is Saved and will be fine! Goodness.. April 3rd, 2008 at 6:44 pm

    A lot of times in MLB flu-like symptoms = hung over. I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case with McGowan.

  161. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 6:44 pm

    Does anyone know what finger it was? Right or left hand? If not, i guess we’ll all find out tonight. If its anything other than pinky and on his left hand. It might cause him some problems at the plate.

  162. S.o.S.27 April 3rd, 2008 at 6:47 pm

    Jaewon,
    This might be a blind leading a blind here. But if im not mistaken they are trying to limit him to around 140 innings. He would make the move to the starter role sometime in July.

  163. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 6:48 pm

    Jaewon,

    the yankees won’t reveal the innings limits for their young starters. There is a general idea that you don’t want them to pitch more than 20 innings than they did last season (but minor league innings aren’t technically = MLB innings). I am sure the Yanks have a # and an est date in mind but won’t reveal it and its prob not set in stone.

  164. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 6:48 pm

    someone like SJ44 may have a more complete or informed answer to that one

  165. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 6:49 pm

    Patrick: In college sports, too. At least, at Syracuse.

    Jaewon: I have no idea, since the Joba rules are no longer in effect, but I think the idea is that he will come in the eighth inning when the Yankees are winning a close game (unless the starter has a no no or whatnot). He’s certainly not for mop up duty.

  166. Doreen April 3rd, 2008 at 6:50 pm

    Sheffield injured left ring finger. I just checked their website.

  167. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 6:51 pm

    One interesting note about the Detroit Tigers (and hurrah… they got swept by the Durham Royals. They started spending some coin on the team when the NHL implemented a salary cap. The owner couldn’t blow all of his money on the Red Wings, so he started to pour it into the Tigers. It makes me sick the teams that don’t spend, but can (ehem… Seattle Mariners owned by Nintendo), and complain about the Yankees. Its also a travesty that ARod makes more than the Marlins, and not from A-Rod’s side. If you can’t afford a baseball team, sell it to someone who can for the fans sake.

  168. Doreen April 3rd, 2008 at 6:51 pm

    Did anyone just the pre-game show on YES, with the highlight of the 3 Amigos? It just makes you want them to succeed even more.

  169. Patrick April 3rd, 2008 at 6:52 pm

    Cuse basketball? Was that why Scoop Jardine was suspended for a few games this season?

  170. mel April 3rd, 2008 at 6:54 pm

    Phil,

    That is wild. Why would they release the girl’s name?

    At least our squirrels are tame. Unless someone named Kevina Lookatus, Justina Papelbaum, Davina Ortiza, or Carina Laptoza bothers their nuts. Then they might go crazy.

    Rebecca,
    Thanks for the insight on Scoop. Half of my family lives near Syracuse and I used to live there so I’m a huge fan. I watched a lot of the games this season but the announcers never really said why Scoop got suspended. Anyways, back to YANKEES!

  182. Clay Buchholz stole my laptop, (aka Joe) April 3rd, 2008 at 7:11 pm

    If anyone is interested, I have two Tier Box MVP seats for Saturday. They are 7 rows from the railing behind home plate. I would like to just get some of my money back, so I’ll sell them for a lot under face.

    Anyone interested?

  183. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 7:12 pm

    Hey all! Happy 3rd game of the season. I had a whopper of a day so probably won’t be around all so much tonight. So here are my predictions. Hughes will be great. The Yankees are great. Life is great. It’s a marathon and not a sprint. Not a question in my mind that we’re on our way to #27!

    Enjoy the game, no matter what happens in it. You can always find positives, even when they don’t jump out and hit you in the eye!

    Go Yankees!!!!!

    Oh yeah – I definitely see why Hughes was our top prospect!

  190. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 7:14 pm

    Dominant inning for Hughes. Safe to say Hughes is a first ballot HoFer?! ;0

  191. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 7:14 pm

    If he pitches every inning like the first we’re going to have a great game tonight!

  192. Jeff NJ April 3rd, 2008 at 7:14 pm

    He writes blogs, he strikes out two of the first three batters? Is it too soon to say Johan who?

  193. Ryan April 3rd, 2008 at 7:15 pm

    damn that curve looks good

  194. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 7:15 pm

    I think Bill Smith just threw the remote at his big screen tv

  195. Clay Buchholz stole my laptop, (aka Joe) April 3rd, 2008 at 7:15 pm

    Half my posts never get posted. Does anyone else have that problem?

  196. Jax April 3rd, 2008 at 7:15 pm

    Betances got 2 K’s already.

  197. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 7:15 pm

    No Jeff…. it is NEVER too soon for that! lol

  198. Don Vito A. Bellamo April 3rd, 2008 at 7:16 pm

    well it is apparent that Phil is MUCH better than Moose ! :-)

  199. Phil Hughes is Saved and will be fine! Goodness.. April 3rd, 2008 at 7:16 pm

    13 pitches that inning

  200. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 7:16 pm

    Clay – I have the same problem sometimes…it’s weird how that works

  201. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 7:16 pm

    What an airhead Kay is. ‘They didn’t do the Hughes chant last year.’ Was he watching Game 3 of the ALDS?

  202. Yanks4Life April 3rd, 2008 at 7:17 pm

    I know Phil Franchise is known for his great variety of off speed pitches, but didn’t he used to throw faster than 88-91 mph before his hamstring injury? What happened to his velocity? When I first saw Phil pitch live in the 2006 Futures Game in Pittsburgh, he was throwing 95-97 mph.

  203. Doreen April 3rd, 2008 at 7:18 pm

    Clay -

    It happens to me at times, but there doesn’t seem to be a rhyme or reason. Sometimes if I refresh the page it turns up, but not always.

  204. Clay Buchholz stole my laptop, (aka Joe) April 3rd, 2008 at 7:19 pm

    It’s early, once the year progresses, he’ll hit 95-96, but will sit at 92-94.

  205. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 7:20 pm

    Yanks4Life: I think he was throwing mostly breaking balls.

  206. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 7:20 pm

    Dustin McGowan has terrific stuff and gave the yankees a lot of problems last year.

    They only hit .205 against him with a .320 OBP and a .273 Slugging Pct.

    His record against the yankees last year was very stilted because he threw two games against them in September when he had a tired arm.

    When he is on he has shut down stuff.

    This game is going to be very, very difficult to wing. He is a yet another terrific pitcher on the Jays staff.

    If they yankees don’t score this isn’t an issue of them just not getting the job done. This will be an issue of a very good pitcher having a good game.

    Not saying this is going to happen – but McGowan has the ability to put up a game similar to the one Burnett threw yesterday.

  207. Joe m April 3rd, 2008 at 7:21 pm

    that didnt take long to critize kay if you dont like him dont listen you have the power of the dial

  208. NJ in Tampa April 3rd, 2008 at 7:21 pm

    It’s 42 degrees out. I wouldn’t worry too much about his velocity.

  209. Clay Buchholz stole my laptop, (aka Joe) April 3rd, 2008 at 7:22 pm

    Has anyone evr sat in Tier Box MVP seats behind home plate?

  210. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 7:22 pm

    McGowan looks pretty good too. The cold weather is contributing to the velocity for both pitchers. If memory serves, McGowan was throwing 95-96 last year against the Yanks and is only hitting 91-92. Could be another pitcher’s duel, a la Game 1.

  211. mel April 3rd, 2008 at 7:23 pm

    Is anyone having problem with Gameday? It doesn’t want to load for me.

  212. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 7:23 pm

    That was a little close!! Didn’t seem like Robbie and Bobby say each other.

  213. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 7:24 pm

    2 quick outs… gotta love the pace.

  214. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 7:24 pm

    Clay yes I did 4 rows from the field. Why do you ask?

  215. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 7:24 pm

    so far so good this inning – 3 pitches and two outs…nice!

  216. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 7:26 pm

    Dj I missed that. They did the HUGHES chant his first start!

    Also I think we should all write to one of the yes broadcasters. I hate the name “generation trey”.

    Hughes looks very good tonight. Lets hope we can give him a few runs to work with.

  217. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 7:26 pm

    That was a seven pitch inning. 13+7=20.

    Yeah, he’s got the pitch count working for him tonight.

  218. Phillip Hughes April 3rd, 2008 at 7:26 pm

    To: Blue Jays

    Thanks for the quick inning.

    Phillip

  219. Countdown April 3rd, 2008 at 7:26 pm

    O/T

    I just read the Canseco Bathroom article, Mel linked above.

    Isn’t beyond strange that the Mitchell Commission never contacted Canseco during their investigation. Perhaps canseco wouldn’t have cooperated, but they didn’t even try.

    The only thing I can think of, is they were afraid he would open a big, steroid sized can of worms.

  220. Clay Buchholz stole my laptop, (aka Joe) April 3rd, 2008 at 7:26 pm

    Jennifer, I have two for Saturday, and can’t make the game.

  221. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 7:26 pm

    McGowan hit 96 in the first.

  222. EY April 3rd, 2008 at 7:26 pm

    Hughes looking great so far.

    Who’s Santana? That singer?

  223. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 7:27 pm

    just a thought…

    if McGowan is still sick and Hughes has some quick innings, it could tire out McGowan pretty quickly. The Yanks need to make him work here. I imagine McGowan has less energy/stamina than normal.

    just an optimistic idea.

  224. Clay Buchholz stole my laptop, (aka Joe) April 3rd, 2008 at 7:28 pm

    Jennifer,

    I’m trying to answer your question, but my post keeps getting deleted.

  225. RobNY April 3rd, 2008 at 7:28 pm

    Yeah i just popped on to comment on the 88-91 myself… McGowan has hit 96 a couple of times…. I wonder if Phil just isnt an 88-91 guy…. we’ve seen those numbers pretty consistently and i LOVE the guy anyway. Nobody seems to get a good at bat against him.

  226. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 7:28 pm

    EY,

    A pitcher who shut down the Twins today. :)

  227. bronxbomber77 April 3rd, 2008 at 7:29 pm

    Score? This on any major channels… ESPN? I know they ran last nights game and are doing Monday versus Tampa (get to see Moose again…yaaah !)

  228. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 7:30 pm

    Good eye Giambino.

  229. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 7:30 pm

    bronxbomber,

    MLB Extra Innings is still on a free preview if your cable company offers that.

    if not, no luck.

  230. mel April 3rd, 2008 at 7:31 pm

    I have to say, I hate those mutton chops on McGowan.

  231. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 7:32 pm

    RobNY,

    dont put too much stock into Hughes mph so far.

  232. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 7:32 pm

    why are we still swinging at the first pitch – please help me understand – I’m not watching live (following on gameday), but I mean dont you want to at least see one first?

  233. bronxbomber77 April 3rd, 2008 at 7:33 pm

    yeah no…crappy time warner

    Thanks though Boston Dave…

    You ever hit the Pour House on Boylston Street, or Whiskys, the next block down? Fun bars… used to bartend there while in college a few years back…

    Full of Sox fans though. :shock

  234. RobNY April 3rd, 2008 at 7:33 pm

    Dont hate the mutton chops mel… maybe he has my problem where the “bars” from the mustache to the chin just wont grow in and so he doesnt wanna look “really stupid” lol

  235. Countdown April 3rd, 2008 at 7:33 pm

    with those sideburns, McGowan looks like a Civil War reenactment actors.

  237. MattQ April 3rd, 2008 at 7:34 pm

    You know how .300 it sort of a benchmark when it comes to batting average?

    what would you guys say is the equivalent benchmark for OBP?

  238. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 7:35 pm

    Clay are you trying to get those seats?

  239. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 7:35 pm

    I appreciate that these are good pitchers. That said, the Yankees are plently capable of beating up a good pitcher for an inning or so. I’d really like to see some of that.

  240. bostonian April 3rd, 2008 at 7:35 pm

    It’s such a pleasure to watch crisply-pitched games in the AL. I mean, I want the Yankees to win, but I just love these kinds of games.

  241. RobNY April 3rd, 2008 at 7:36 pm

    Yeah Dave i have been a Hughes Velocity apologist for a while now and im starting to think that he isnt ever gunna be a 93-95 guy… he was 88-91 his first start last year against toronto and 88-91 in Texas… he’s 88-91 tonight…. could still be a horse at those speeds just not the same as if he was living in the 94 range.

  242. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 7:36 pm

    After 2 innings, Scranton Wilkes-Barre is up 2-0 on a Jason Lane solo hr and an RBI double from Nick Green. Sunglasses Igawa has pitched 2 perfect innings with 3 K’s. He is an excellent AAA pitcher.

  243. EY April 3rd, 2008 at 7:37 pm

    LOL DJ, oh yeah, that’s right.

  244. mel April 3rd, 2008 at 7:37 pm

    Rishi,

    I think the logic is to be very aggressive with these last three pitchers. Because they throw a lot of strikes. Hard to be patient because you’ll find yourself behind 0-2. Sucks, but that’s how it goes.

  245. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 7:37 pm

    You know, whoever made that comment last night about Toronto all looking like they’re related, I think you might have a point.

    Anyway. Back to baseball.

  246. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 7:38 pm

    Andy Sonnanstine?

    I like our chances tomorrow.

  247. Jax April 3rd, 2008 at 7:40 pm

    Hughes is probably throwing a lot of 2 seamers which is low nineties. Which is the velocity is low.
    Doesn’t really matter he’s pitching well.

  248. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 7:40 pm

    RobNY, he was throwing 92-94 in Spring Training. He was throwing 92-94 last October. And he’s thrown 92-94 since high school.

    Is there really a good reason to expect this not to change?

  249. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 7:40 pm

    That is a great 3 innings by Hughesy. Lets go get a couple of runs… anyone smelling some Melky magic?

  250. RobNY April 3rd, 2008 at 7:41 pm

    Whoever it was that brought up that extra innings is still free … thanks to you because i dont have to watch the game on my lap top.

  251. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 7:41 pm

    As for the “really good” OBP benchmark…I’d say about .360-.380. I think there are a lot more .300 hitters than .400 OBP guys.

  252. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 7:41 pm

    DJ: Sonnanstine gave us fits last year. Still, though, he’s a far cry from AJ Burnett or Roy Halladay.

  253. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 7:43 pm

    We need them to give him some runs to work with.

  254. RobNY April 3rd, 2008 at 7:43 pm

    I completely agree with you Jax. I think that you may be right about it being his 2 seamer because it’s moving quite a bit. Like i said i dont really care whether its 94 or 90 because nobody seems to have gotten a good, comfortable at bat off of him tonight.

    On another note if this is McGowan with the flu i wouldnt want to see him at full strength.

  255. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 7:43 pm

    it’s just so annoying – he walked Giambi, he’s not throwing that much fire up there…just 1!! It’s a hollow plea, i know :)

  256. Frunkis April 3rd, 2008 at 7:43 pm

    is shelley duncan serving his suspension right now?

  257. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 7:44 pm

    Sonnanstine isn’t in the same stratosphere as any of these guys. His ceiling is that of a back-of-the-rotation starter.

  258. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 7:44 pm

    Jorge who?

  259. KG86 April 3rd, 2008 at 7:44 pm

    I can’t say enough how great of a pickup Molina was by Cash.

  260. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 7:44 pm

    Anyone else think Molina’s been putting up some great ABs?

  261. YanksFanLV April 3rd, 2008 at 7:44 pm

    I was really surprised when they were announcing the lineups on YES that Giambi has a career .992 fielding percentage.

  262. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 7:45 pm

    Frunkis: No idea. Best ask Pete.

    Jose looks good early.

  263. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 7:45 pm

    That wasn’t a pitchout, right? They do know that Molina’s are genetically modified to be the slowest humans on the planet, right?

  264. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 7:45 pm

    Has anyone ever said how they are going to limit Kennedy and Hughes innings? I may be off, but I believe Hughes would top off at 160 innings and Kennedy at 180-190. Assuming healthy (knocks on wood), will Hughes spend some time in the pen later in the year or will he be skipped in the rotation at times? Anyone have any idea? Maybe when Joba joins the rotation (which I am skeptical will happen if he continues to dominate in that role), Hughes or Kennedy will go to the pen? Sorry for the rambling.

  265. mel April 3rd, 2008 at 7:46 pm

    Which is why fielding percentage is one of the most useless statistics in baseball. Errors are subjective things, and the product of random luck more often than not.

    Polanco’s “errorless” streak was extended yesterday on a play that was without question an error. It works like that.

    Can’t see the game .. how good does Phil look?

    Just good?
    Pretty good?
    Very good?
    Glad we didn’t trade him for Santana good?
    Unhittably good, like the game he got hurt in last year?
    Joba good?

  274. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 7:47 pm

    That was a huge steal on Cash’s part! I think Jose is more relaxed here. He knows his job is just to catch. He doesn’t need to be offensive on this team.

  275. Jax April 3rd, 2008 at 7:48 pm

    Betances now has 6 k’s in 3 innings. He’s good.

  276. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 7:48 pm

    The inning limits won’t be announced to the public, but Chamberlain is expected to be topped off at 140 or so, Kennedy at 190-200, and Hughes at 170 or so.

  277. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 7:48 pm

    at the very least, this is great for the all important pitch count. How does Damon look on those swinging strikes – is he anywhere near close?

  278. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 7:49 pm

    Hey guys, is it me or is Paul O’Neill really good in the booth?/ I am really ejoying listening to him.

    Hard hit by Johnny, just, at some one. Good sign though. We’ll get our runs.

  279. Jax April 3rd, 2008 at 7:49 pm

    No bunt by Damon?

  280. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 7:49 pm

    Darn. Johnny crushed that.

  281. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 7:49 pm

    Ron

    Also some fielders will get to balls that others won’t. Say a fielder gets to a ball but miss plays it. It becomes an error. Another fielder doesn’t get to it, and no error.

  282. Dr. Cox April 3rd, 2008 at 7:50 pm

    dp???

  283. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 7:50 pm

    Yes. If Jeter was charged an error for every ball he failed to reach last year that the average shortstop could be expected to field…gah, I don’t even want to think about it.

  284. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 7:50 pm

    Damon was making a few half swings. Jeter GIDP

  285. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 7:51 pm

    Well at least we worked him.

  286. Dr. Cox April 3rd, 2008 at 7:51 pm

  287. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 7:52 pm

    mel,

    considering how many high upside arms the Yanks have in the minors, it may be The Big Four, Five, Six…. in a couple years.

    I think we need a nickname that’s a little more scalable :)

  288. Mehdi in SF April 3rd, 2008 at 7:52 pm

    Hmm maybe we should have bunted in hindsight.

  289. Josh April 3rd, 2008 at 7:52 pm

    Does anyone know how long they signed Jose Molina for? Also, I know Giambi, Abreu, and Moose are gone after this season, but what about Damon or Matsui? Is it this year or next?

  290. Phil Hughes is Saved and will be fine! Goodness.. April 3rd, 2008 at 7:52 pm

    Dang it Jetes

  291. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 7:53 pm

    Hate to say it, but does it seem like DJ is the only one not hustling down the line to beat out a DP ball. Abreu hustled to beat one out last night, and Cano today. Jeter loafed it down the line.

  292. anti-mussina April 3rd, 2008 at 7:53 pm

    what a surprise derek choker grounds into a DP.

    jeter will lead the league in DPs this year.

  293. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 7:53 pm

    Fred McGriff?

  294. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 7:53 pm

    Since when has Jeter become the king of the DP? It seems like he’s always grounding into DP’s…

  295. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 7:53 pm

    ANSKY – first off, good throw back name I love it… and Phil Franchise, so far/knock on wood, looks dominating, why did we even think about trading him good

  296. Yankee Fan in Boston April 3rd, 2008 at 7:53 pm

    Hughes looks great, for those asking. Jeter with ANOTHER double play is frustrating. I know it’s early, but I don’t think I’m alone when I say I was hoping for a good, clean quick start to this season. Seeing slow starts, or poor at bats early in the season just brings up too many bad feelings.

    Also, I hate it when the announcers present the cop-out of “well, it’s cold. It’s hard to hit in the cold.” It’s cold for the other team, too.

  297. Jake April 3rd, 2008 at 7:53 pm

    Okay, I know that Benji Molina is slower than molasses on a winter morning, but is there any reason that Johnny Damon couldn’t have bunted him over to third base?

    A man on second and third and with 1 out is a much better position than allowing Jeter to ground into a double play.

    Unreal.

  298. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 7:53 pm

    I believe Molina’s is a 2-year contract

  299. mel April 3rd, 2008 at 7:54 pm

    Before you guys start dumping on Jeter, we’ve been grounding out all night. There just hasn’t been anyone on base to double up.

    Hope Phil’s not affected by that “long” inning.

  300. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 7:54 pm

    “I was really surprised when they were announcing the lineups on YES that Giambi has a career .992 fielding percentage.”

    Fielding percentage is a really bad statistic and not taken seriously as a statistical measure of defense.

    There are several other defensive statistics that show that Giambi has been an awful fielder – not just bad but really terrible.

    It’s partly hard to predict what Giambi will do defensively because he hasn’t played in the field regularly.

    But if Giambi had played say 130 games at first base in 2006 (last time he played any meaningful games at first – played 54 games) he would have been around 25 runs worse than a league average first baseman.

    That is a staggering number of runs for a first baseman to give up given that the position is often thought to be the easiest defensive position to play.

    If Giambi stays healthy and plays 120-130 games in the field he will have to be much, much better in the field for him to be better than a league average first baseman. His defense could cut into solid offensive production that much.

  301. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 7:54 pm

    I think they signed Molina to a two year deal this past off season.

  302. Josh April 3rd, 2008 at 7:55 pm

    Damon would have had that….

  303. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 7:55 pm

    Softly hit. Eckstein got lucky.

  304. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 7:55 pm

    I think Damon could have gotten to it. We are seeing why Matsui shouldn’t be playing the outfield anymore.

  305. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 7:55 pm

    Wow…Matsui looked very awkward there and took a long time to get to the ball.

  306. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 7:56 pm

    Wonderful. Gritty gutty albino dude gets a double.

  307. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 7:56 pm

    Our left-handed attack so far:

    Damon – 1 for 10 w/ 3 K’s
    Abreu – 3 for 8
    Giambi – 0 for 7
    Cano – 1 for 8 w/ 2 K’s
    Matsui – 1 for 7 w/ 2 K’s

    Aside from Abreu, it hasn’t been good. This is what killed us last spring. Let’s hope they get it going quicker…

  308. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 7:56 pm

    CB,

    what is your source for the Cano and Giambi fielding stats you’ve mentioned? just curious – Id like to read up on it.

    thanks.

  309. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 7:57 pm

    Molina was signed over the winter to a 2/4 mill. Damon and Matsui are in the middle of 4-year contracts. I think it’s the year after next.

  310. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 7:57 pm

    When Matsui first got here, he was a pretty good outfielder. It seems like he has gotten worse year after year.

  311. Jake April 3rd, 2008 at 7:58 pm

    mel,

    No one is getting on Jeter…I think this would have been more on Girardi.

    Move the players over and give guys like Abreu and A-Rod a shot with guys on base.

    Its just one play, but even so.

  312. RobNY April 3rd, 2008 at 7:58 pm

    lol yeah Jennifer i shot a text message to my mother as soon as Matsui made a mess of that play saying exactly that “Damon would have gotten to it.”

    Matsui looks really stiff out there…. can we trade him to the giants please?

  313. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 7:59 pm

    Hughes looks okay. Not incredibly sharp, especially with his breaking ball.

  314. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 7:59 pm

    I don’t think Carl Crawford would’ve gotten to the ball Eckstein hit

  315. John April 3rd, 2008 at 7:59 pm

    Realistically Phil throwing fastball and curve ain’t gonna cut it. He threw 2 of the nastiest changeups to Texiera last year, but I don’t think I’ve seen him throw more than 3-4 since, what gives?

  316. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 8:00 pm

    DJ: It’s game three And we’ve faced perhaps the best 1-2 punch in our division. If we do this against Tampa, you *might* have a case.

    Alex Rios is beginning to bother me.

  317. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 8:00 pm

    what happend between the last few inning and this one…he was “on” and now not so much – though I consider that a Matsui run and not a Hughes run

  318. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 8:00 pm

    Matsui, like Giambi, seems to be uncoordinated and awkward. The knee injury seems to have slowed him down a bit, too…so that doesn’t exactly help. But if JD is going to be productive he needs a blow in left every couple of days to prevent the nagging leg injuries he usually gets. Cano was too nonchallant there.

  319. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:00 pm

    WTF CANO?

  320. Phil Hughes is Saved and will be fine! Goodness.. April 3rd, 2008 at 8:00 pm

    come on Phil

  321. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 8:01 pm

    unbelieveable throw by Molina

    RobNY – San Fran or Yamuri? (sorry for the spelling)

  322. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:01 pm

    Oh boy. Rios gets to move to third.

  323. Phil Hughes is Saved and will be fine! Goodness.. April 3rd, 2008 at 8:01 pm

    wtf Robbie

  324. Mike Mineo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:01 pm

    Cano is really annoying me so far this year

  325. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:02 pm

    I’m really far more irritated with our position players than our pitching at the moment.

  326. Jax April 3rd, 2008 at 8:02 pm

    Hughes needs to start throwing something other than a curve/fastball.
    Going through lineups 3,4 times you need that third pitch.

  327. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 8:02 pm

    JoeT,

    I agree

  328. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 8:03 pm

    Rishi: 2nd time through the order.

  329. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:03 pm

    What a beauty of a curveball to sit down Vernon Wells.

  330. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:03 pm

    That was a nasty curveball. Get Frankie.

  331. Mike in SF April 3rd, 2008 at 8:04 pm

    Hey guys,

    Quick question. I can’t watch the MLB.tv at work because my media player is missing:

    WVC1 codec

    Can anyone help me as to how I can d/l, safe and free?

  332. RobNY April 3rd, 2008 at 8:04 pm

    hey Joe how about we trade Matsui and Kei Igawa to Hokkaido Nippon Ham for Yu Darvish? lol sound good?

  333. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 8:04 pm

    Hughes seems to have no confidence in his change, even though it’s not a bad pitch. His slider is very good and used to be his out pitch, but the Yanks told him to ditch it in favor of the curve and in fear of arm problems. Once his arm strength is up his fastball will be less hittable. But yes, I would like him to showcase a few more pitches.

  334. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 8:04 pm

    I tell you – I could do without that Alex Rios…

    didn’t think about the second time through the order issue…good point

  335. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:05 pm

    Hughes is throwing lasers and getting no help from the ump.

    Finally.

  336. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:05 pm

    Oh come on! Call that… Ring him up!!

  337. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:05 pm

    That pitch was in the same spot. He called it a strike the first time!

  338. Jax April 3rd, 2008 at 8:05 pm

    Thomas should be out.

  339. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 8:05 pm

    He hung that one…we got lucky there.

  340. Terry from New Hampshire April 3rd, 2008 at 8:05 pm

    Hughes may be behind 1-0, but watching it on MLB I can see that his breaking ball is pretty damn good. K’d Wells on one. Frank is next.

  341. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:06 pm

    Oh man. What command of that fastball.

  342. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:06 pm

    Sit down, Frankie. He’s out of the game. Gets a big part of their offense outta there for us.

  343. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:06 pm

    Thomas wake up!! Throw him out. That was such a strike! That was perfect!

  344. David April 3rd, 2008 at 8:07 pm

    This hasn’t been a good couple days for Frankie, eh? Joba and Phil showing his butt up.

  345. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 8:07 pm

    Geeze, Frank. You should have fallen flat on your back. Maybe that would have sold it.

  346. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 8:07 pm

    I’d say Frank should learn to control his temper, but nah…

  347. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:07 pm

    Thomas is throwing a hissy fit over nothing. The 3-2 pitch was over the plate.

  348. mel April 3rd, 2008 at 8:07 pm

    Gotta go, but I just had to stay and follow that AB. Huge K’s in the heart of the lineup.

    Let’s go Yankees. Pick Phil, up.

  349. Fran April 3rd, 2008 at 8:07 pm

    Well at least they got Thomas out of the game. You could see that coming.
    Nice recovery by Hughes

  350. Global Warming April 3rd, 2008 at 8:07 pm

    Magic man Kei Igawa is destroying people in the minor leagues.

    Watch out Mussina.

  351. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 8:08 pm

    “jeter will lead the league in DPs this year.”

    “Since when has Jeter become the king of the DP? It seems like he’s always grounding into DP’s…”

    Despite what people think they are seeing with Jeter – double plays are not a major issue with him.

    Last year 88 players had higher net double play rates than Derek Jeter.

    Amazing how your eyes can deceive you.

  352. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:08 pm

    Has anyone driven to the stadium this year? I am going Sunday and don’t know how I should go, car, train or ferry. car going would take 20 minutes. Train 2 hours, ferry 2 hours.

  353. nyyfan April 3rd, 2008 at 8:08 pm

    Ha, Frank was scared, he did that on purpose so Hughes wouldn’t buckle his knees anymore.

  354. RobNY April 3rd, 2008 at 8:08 pm

    Yeah Frank looked PISSED … he was none too happy about getting called out despite the fact that he should have struck out for the previous 2 pitches so I cant really hear about it from him.

  355. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:09 pm

    Or not. Be nice if he called it earlier in the count.

  356. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 8:09 pm

    So why could that not have been Rios!!

  357. Bronx Liaison April 3rd, 2008 at 8:09 pm

    In a word, WOW

    A bloop double created a cheap run. Then the Blue Jays were on the verge of another cheap run with Rios getting to third on a perfect throw em out that Cano turned into an a free pass to third.

    What does Hughes do? Bares down and strikes two in a row to end the inning. As Bill Raftery would say, “ONIONS”

  358. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:09 pm

    Global, problem is he gets up to the majors and stinks.

    Wow Bobby lost a lot of weight. Looks much trimmer this year.

  359. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:10 pm

    Nice to see Bobby right on the ball.

  360. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 8:10 pm

    Boston Dave – Baseball Prospectus. Their fielding stats aren’t the most advanced but they’re fine. Hardball times has very good zone rating data. Bill James fielding bible is also good.

  361. Jax April 3rd, 2008 at 8:10 pm

    It’s okay now for Hughes to use his slider. They took it away from him in the minors so he can concentrate on developing other pitches.
    He does have a good slider but never uses it.

  362. Betsy April 3rd, 2008 at 8:10 pm

    boy you guys are rough on Phil. He’s looked great tonight…….he IS just 21 years old. Maybe he and Molina didn’t want to fool around with some of his other pitches, knowing that his FB and curve are his strongest pitches. There’s time to work the others in and he just had a really good inning, despite giving up a run. He buckled down and didn’t give him – that’s a sign of a good pitcher (and he didn’t make any bad pitches after being squeezed by the ump)

  363. Countdown April 3rd, 2008 at 8:11 pm

    I think Frank is suffering from ‘roid rage

  364. pat April 3rd, 2008 at 8:11 pm

    I hate when players get tossed because the replacements always seem to come back to haunt us somehow.

  365. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 8:12 pm

    thanks CB…

    when people use fielding % (Sox fans always tell me about how good Ortiz is) I want to tell them how it’s an overrated stat but I never have any alternative.

  366. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:13 pm

    Mcgown looks like he can be had. These last two innings he has not been sharp.

  367. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:13 pm

    Nice Bobby!

  368. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:13 pm

    Heads-up play by Bobby, moving over to third!

  369. RobNY April 3rd, 2008 at 8:13 pm

    Don’t say that about Frank, he’s a classy guy. He just didnt believe he struck out on a ball… On a side note, I don’t understand how it’s only this year that people are realizing that third base is a ghost town when the big G is batting.

  370. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:13 pm

    The shift bit them. Hopefully we can get a run out of this.

  371. Bronx Liaison April 3rd, 2008 at 8:14 pm

    Countdown:

    I don’t think The Big Hurt took or needs roids. That’s kind of like Wolverine taking iron pills or The Hulk lifting weights. totally unnecessary..

    not saying it isn’t possible, just unlikely

  372. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:15 pm

    Cold air is letting everything hang up. That is the second one. :(

  373. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 8:15 pm

    Ach, not this time, but that was some great baserunning by Bobby.

  374. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 8:15 pm

    I know what O’Niel said makes sense (having Zaun cover 3rd there) but I can only think of the play opening day a few years ago with that Jeter play at 3rd :(

  375. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:15 pm

    Hopefully Cano can bring Bobby home. Well, looks like he can’t. Flies out to Stairs to end the inning.

  376. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:15 pm

    Can we please actually see some help for Phil? On either side of this game?

  377. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 8:15 pm

    “Despite what people think they are seeing with Jeter – double plays are not a major issue with him.”

    I don’t totally disagree, but the numbers are starting to show the contrary. Last year, he grounded into a career high 21DPs, and an additional 3 in the ALDS vs. the tribe.

  378. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:16 pm

    Yeah, seriously. Giambi could get away with bunting down the third base line every single time he comes up to bat. He’d always beat the shift.

  379. bb April 3rd, 2008 at 8:16 pm

    oYYY!
    1-0
    Game over!
    Cmon yanks wake UP!

  380. Jeff April 3rd, 2008 at 8:16 pm

    Get it going offense. We’re going through the motions, ugh!

  381. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 8:17 pm

    Bronx Liaison – Congratulations, you win the comment of the day award.

  382. Global Warming April 3rd, 2008 at 8:18 pm

    Has Giambi ever been asked why he doesn’t at least once attempt a bunt on that shift?

    I mean seriously, whats the deal?

  383. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:18 pm

    I’m guessing Giambi doesn’t remember how to bunt anymore.

  384. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:18 pm

    Update from the farm:

    The “One Who Wears Shades” through 5 : 0H 0R 0ER 0BB 6K

    Jason Lane – Solo HR
    Eric Duncan – 2 for 2, triple, run, rbi

    3-0 Scranton leading Lehigh Valley

  385. Bronx Liaison April 3rd, 2008 at 8:19 pm

    haha JoeT

    thank you, thank you,

  386. bb April 3rd, 2008 at 8:19 pm

    Still missing those big clutch hits, like the ones the Sox are still getting this season.

  387. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 8:19 pm

    so just my opinion obviously – and I know it’s early, and I know we’ve faced 2 real good pitchers so far (plus today) but I don’t think it would hurt to throw in a few hit and runs, open up some holes and make the batters stop thinking. The H&R takes so much pressure off the batter, it’s just find the ball, hit the ball, and hopefully find a hole.

  388. pat April 3rd, 2008 at 8:19 pm

    Anyone know Phil’s pitch count?

  389. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:20 pm

    If I were Giambi, I’d probably try bunting down to third a couple of times, especially if I was in the middle of a slump and needed something to boost my confidence.

  390. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:20 pm

    Phil’s going to be throwing pitch #65 soon. Pretty economical outing.

  391. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 8:21 pm

    Phil’s at 62…looks like they had some discussions during the bottom half of the last inning…he’s looking much better.

  392. Kat April 3rd, 2008 at 8:21 pm

    Jennifer, where are you coming from? I drove for to the stadium for opening days round #1 and #2. Round #1 was awful, the second one wasn’t nearly as bad.

  393. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:21 pm

    I don’t put much stock in how Igawa does in the minors.

    If a pitcher wanted to wear a ski mask on the mound, would they be allowed too?

  394. pat April 3rd, 2008 at 8:21 pm

    Forget it, M. Kay told me.

  395. Fran April 3rd, 2008 at 8:21 pm

    These games have been very fast. That’s how you know the Yanks aren’t working the count. Usually the Yanks work the count and make the pitchers work and the games are over 3 hours. C’mon Yanks. Lets score some runs.

  396. Global Warming April 3rd, 2008 at 8:21 pm

    Sorry but I’m going to have to pull a Michael Kay.

    The Magic man Kei Igawa is _____ through 5.

  397. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 8:21 pm

    Gitmo – please, only give us serious updates from the Farm – no one believes you that Igawa hasn’t given up 6 homeruns on high curve balls by this point lol

    ok actually i’d love to see stuff like that, and thanks for the update :)

  398. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:21 pm

    It’s pretty amazing for a young pitcher to be missing by so little.

  399. Jax April 3rd, 2008 at 8:21 pm

    Does every young pitcher need to get squeezed?

  400. Clay Buchholz stole my laptop, (aka Joe) April 3rd, 2008 at 8:21 pm

    “Clay are you trying to get those seats?”

    Jennifer, no, I am trying to give away those seats.

  401. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:22 pm

    Kat from Bergen county. I am about 15 minutes from the bridge.

  402. Mike Mineo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:23 pm

    he better watch it here. 2 runs will result in an automatic loss because of our powerhouse offense.

  403. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:23 pm

    Give away? And can’t find someone? What day?

  404. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:23 pm

    Because this offense has been so damn pathetic, Hughes really can’t afford to give up a hit here. I’m really sick of these lousy starts.

  405. Bronx Liaison April 3rd, 2008 at 8:23 pm

    Michael Kay loves to inform the audience that pitchers are allowed to blow on their hands because of the cold weather.. mindblowing insight

    The Yankees need to let Kei Igawa wear the Scranton Yankees jersey if/when he ever contributes to the big club again..

  406. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:23 pm

    Jax, only Yankee pitchers.

  407. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:23 pm

    It does look like the zone is shifting each batter, doesn’t it?

  408. RobNY April 3rd, 2008 at 8:24 pm

    Wow so just an inning ago those curveballs were strikes, and now he isnt getting a damn thing. Anybody else think that the zone has changed a bit?

  409. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:24 pm

    This umpire has no clue what’s a strike and what isn’t. He’s making it up as he goes along. That curveball was more of a strike than several of the ones he’s given Phil this game.

  410. John April 3rd, 2008 at 8:24 pm

    These are the important ones. Great outing versus mediocore

  411. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:24 pm

    This just in: Yankees promote LHP Kei Igawa to AAAA Stony Brook.

  412. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 8:24 pm

    I really hate that hobbit.

  413. Fran April 3rd, 2008 at 8:24 pm

    That 2 out walk always comes back to haunt them.

  414. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:24 pm

    It is still very early. It is only two runs.

  415. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:25 pm

    Hughes can’t seem to catch a break anywhere. Infield single score Scutaro.

  416. John April 3rd, 2008 at 8:25 pm

    changeup?

  417. MMF April 3rd, 2008 at 8:25 pm

    Would it be a crime to manufacture a run here and there?

    Yanks seem built to devastate the lousy pitchers in the league and they get handcuffed by all the good ones.

    3 inning — 1st and 2nd no outs
    4 inning — man on first no outs,

    result = no runs

    gotta get minimum 1 run in from that

  418. Bronx Liaison April 3rd, 2008 at 8:26 pm

    Theres the first changeup Hughes threw and it was nasty.. needs to use it more often

  419. Phil Hughes is Saved and will be fine! Goodness.. April 3rd, 2008 at 8:26 pm

    This ump really is annoying me

  420. Dan April 3rd, 2008 at 8:26 pm

    Giambi’s bunted on the shift a few times before. Usually in situations when he’s leading off late in the game, and the team is down by 2 or more.

  421. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 8:26 pm

    Our defense is awfully mediocre…Arod looked slow on that play. I think he’s much better going to his right.

  422. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:27 pm

    The Jays have gotten two very cheap runs. We are due!

  423. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:27 pm

    This all started with an f’ing 2-out walk involving several borderline pitches.

    This is just maddening to watch.

  424. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 8:27 pm

    ok, Yanks, that offense? let’s put it to work.

  425. Kat April 3rd, 2008 at 8:28 pm

    Ouch. I came from LI both days but had friends from from Jersey. The bridge was backed up badly both days. Budget extra time. :)

  426. pat April 3rd, 2008 at 8:28 pm

    Pete

    Guess Suzyn unlike Cash isn’t a loyal reader of your work.

  427. MMF April 3rd, 2008 at 8:28 pm

    remember that photo of igawa dressed as the monkey from the wizard of oz when the team “hazed” the rookies last fall.

    they should make igawa wear that… all the time.

    Anybody have that photo?

    Is it true he really pitches better without the sunglasses? wierd dude.

  428. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:30 pm

    So basically I probably should just take the ferry? :( I won’t be able to go to Yankee Tavern before the game or after.

  429. Phil Hughes is Saved and will be fine! Goodness.. April 3rd, 2008 at 8:31 pm

    hopefully the bats will wake up soon..like now? :)

  430. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:31 pm

    Matsui singles…let’s make it count.

  431. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 8:31 pm

    Matsui is very good when he goes the other way…His struggles always happen when he’s overly pull-conscious.

  432. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:31 pm

    Nice Hideki… Way to start it off. Can we play some National League style baseball here please?

  433. Mike Mineo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:31 pm

    alright, time for the daily DP

  434. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:31 pm

    Should Jose lay down a bunt?

  435. Ummmmmmm...... April 3rd, 2008 at 8:32 pm

    Jays have a good 123 in their rotation IF they can keep them healthy.

  436. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:32 pm

    Where is the ump’s zone? He called that a ball earlier!

  437. MMF April 3rd, 2008 at 8:32 pm

    Will Shelley Duncan ever get a chance to play?

    Matsui looks ancient. nice hit. Molina should bunt! 0-2 now, oh well.

    Does anyone like Bobby Abreu anymore?

  438. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:32 pm

    Whoa that was a call he wouldn’t give to Hughes, and he gave it to their pitcher?!

    This ump is awful tonight. Can we have to ump who worked Tuesday game back?

  439. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:33 pm

    Bill Miller is garbage. I’m surprised he didn’t call that a strike.

  440. Nathan April 3rd, 2008 at 8:33 pm

    Our offense is so feast or famine… not good at all… i think its going to be a dogfight for the WC between us and DET.. very similar teams…

    but so very encouraging to see Hughes…

  441. Rocco April 3rd, 2008 at 8:33 pm

    infield fly rule with 1 on? kay’s an idiot

  442. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:33 pm

    Just had a flashback to last season… remember Josh Phelps catching. LOL.

  443. John April 3rd, 2008 at 8:34 pm

    put on a play girardi

  444. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:35 pm

    The offense still can’t get it done. Melky GIDP

  445. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:35 pm

    DP again. This is exasperating. May have to pour myself a tasty adult beverage soon.

  446. VRSCE April 3rd, 2008 at 8:35 pm

    Blue Jays have great pitching, three first class starters in the first three games. Mussina does not play in that league anymore. Wishing will not make it

  447. Global Warming April 3rd, 2008 at 8:35 pm

    Oh my goodness Magic man Kei Igawa is so ridiculous. He’s just embarrassing people now.

    I’m so glad I’m watching this and not YES as I just saw another DP roll by.

    This guy is going to bring us a championship……..in AAA!!

  448. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:35 pm

    This is just pathetic. They aren’t even having good at-bats anymore.

  449. Mike Mineo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:35 pm

    my jaw will drop in shock if we either get an extra base hit or NOT ground into a DP in an inning.

  450. Global Warming April 3rd, 2008 at 8:36 pm

    By the way, 6 IP of _________ball for the Magic Man.

  451. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 8:36 pm

    Yikes. Need to make something happen, somewhere. I’ll give them a pass on Burnett last night, but McGowan doesn’t look unhittable.

  452. RobNY April 3rd, 2008 at 8:36 pm

    Another perfect inning for the beaver and he has 7 k’s….. why does he suck so bad in the bigs and dominates the AAA? He’s like the Andy Phillips of Yankee pitchers.

  453. Mehdi in SF April 3rd, 2008 at 8:36 pm

    Hmm this game is starting to annoy me. It’s too early in the season to get annoyed so I’m gonna go take a shower and let things play out. I’ll catch the final score later.

  454. Yankee Fan in Boston April 3rd, 2008 at 8:37 pm

    This team looks carbon-coby like they did last spring, only a year older. There were maybe 2 well hit balls by the Yankees so far, one of them a line out by Damon. Lifeless start was at the top of the list of things I wasn’t going to miss about the Torre era. Yes, I know it’s early, but I’ve already got that “well april is gonna suck” feeling.

  455. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:37 pm

    I don’t think I’ve read anyone say that Mussina is a #2, or 3. Mike is a very good 4-5 pitcher. Match him against Bostons number 5. Or even Baltimore’s number 3. Mike will be fine!

  456. matteo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:37 pm

    anybody know if wcbs has an internet broadcast that i don’t have to go through mlb.com to get?

  457. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 8:37 pm

    Rocco – it can be called an infield fly as long as the umpires judge that it was a catchable ball/dropped it on purpose…. Mike Lowell tried it last year with a man on first, a line-drive was hit at him, he intentionally dropped it and turned the double play, they ruled the batter was out and the runner returns to first base.

  458. Doreen April 3rd, 2008 at 8:38 pm

    This is a discouraging game. The Yankees are not able to capitalize on the few opportunities they have had. Hughes is pitching well and the Blue Jays have been able to get the hit when they need it.

    It’s game 3. The Yankees will hit, of this I’m sure. But they were clicking on all cylinders, this offense, all spring. I know these pitchers are good, and I know it’s a lot harder than it looks, but it sure seems like they haven’t changed their approach any at all. Maybe they haven’t had the opportunity to? It still looks like they’re trying to hit homeruns instead of that “small ball” concept we were all waiting for.

  459. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:38 pm

    If I was as bad at my job as Bill Miller is at his, I would have been fired a while ago.

  460. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 8:38 pm

    I say Girardi should get bold tomorrow. A mass-benching. Betemit at 2nd, Ensberg at 1st, Duncan in left, and Joba DHing!

  461. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 8:38 pm

    How to get Alex Rios out: Get behind 3-0 and then throw him a meatball.

  462. Clay Buchholz stole my laptop, (aka Joe) April 3rd, 2008 at 8:38 pm

    Jennifer,

    Tickets are for Saturday.

  463. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:39 pm

    McGowan looks very hittable. We keep letting him off the hook. The Jays have been able to take advantage of cheap hits. We have not. that is the story of this game.

    :lol: You hear the kids yelling. Hey Frank Thomas where are you, oh yeah you got chucked. :lol: How cute.

  464. Clay Buchholz stole my laptop, (aka Joe) April 3rd, 2008 at 8:39 pm

    Jennifer,

    Saturday’s game.

  465. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:40 pm

    Why’d they pull Igawa?

  466. Big Joe April 3rd, 2008 at 8:40 pm

    Here is the issue with DJ’s new found DP penchant. Its not a problem for guys later in order but for a 2nd in order guy that’s a rally killer right? I mean the lead off guy needs to get on base and #2 either moves him or gets a hit. DP’s and strikeouts are the cardinal sin for a #2 hitter.

    To Be honest I’d rather they use Abreu in the 2 hole and move Jeter elsewhere (maybe 3rd or lower). Bobby never had more than 13 GIDPs. Their Ks and Power are actually more similar than we’d care to admit and Bobby has a better career On Base %. I think it’s something to consider.

  467. Jax April 3rd, 2008 at 8:40 pm

    Hughes just hit 95.

  468. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 8:41 pm

    That was at 95. Maybe cranking it up a notch for his last inning.

  469. Clay Buchholz stole my laptop, (aka Joe) April 3rd, 2008 at 8:41 pm

    Jennifer,

    Saturday.

  470. PAT M. April 3rd, 2008 at 8:41 pm

    Just got in , can someone tell me how Toronto scored

  471. RobNY April 3rd, 2008 at 8:41 pm

    Scott Patterson? The magic man had a perfect game going…. why exactly wouldnt you let him keep going?

  472. VRSCE April 3rd, 2008 at 8:41 pm

    Mussina is very hittable not McGowan, too bad we could not switch

  473. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:42 pm

    What a great 6 innings so far by Hughesy! Let’s support him with some runs. How bout just one in the bottom of the frame?

  474. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 8:42 pm

    Phil deserves a win. But I’m afraid he won’t get one unless we do it now…

  475. Jax April 3rd, 2008 at 8:42 pm

    Hughes was talking to the ump. “Give me some calls dammit” is what he said.

  476. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 8:42 pm

    they pulled Mr. Sunglasses??

  477. NJ in Tampa April 3rd, 2008 at 8:42 pm

    6 very good innings from Hughes. Time for the offense to wake up.

  478. Clay Buchholz stole my laptop, (aka Joe) April 3rd, 2008 at 8:42 pm

    Jennifer,

    Sorry. I’m trying to answer you, but my posts aren’t posting.

  479. Global Warming April 3rd, 2008 at 8:43 pm

    Did they seriously just pull Magic man Kei Igawa on 60 pitches through 6 with a perfect game?

    Hellllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllo!!!!!!

    That was the only good thing I had going tonight!

  480. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:43 pm

    The question is why is Jeter hitting into more dp’s. Is his bat slower, so he is just rolling over the ball? Is he slower and isn’t beating it out like he used to?

    I know everyone is saying when Ichiro loses a step he will lose a lot of his infield hits.

    What is the story with Jeter?

  481. MMF April 3rd, 2008 at 8:43 pm

    Phil Hughes looks great.

    Too bad the hitters are doody.

  482. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:43 pm

    Hope the Yanks get something started this inning.

  483. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:43 pm

    Clay email me. yanksjenn@optonline.net

  484. Doreen April 3rd, 2008 at 8:44 pm

    What worries me is that there are a lot of teams in the AL that have excellent 1-2 pitchers, if not 1-2-3, that will be matched up to pitch against the Yankees. At some point the Yankees need to hit good pitching, not just mediocre pitching.

  485. Bronx Liaison April 3rd, 2008 at 8:44 pm

    Don’t know if that last reading was legit, but it had Hughes at 95mph. The reason why it seems to be correct is b/c Hughes never throws as hard as he can and rarely dials it up. Even his delivery looked maxed out, which would help result in a bigger fastball..

    He’s got the gas, just doesn’t use it till he needs it

  487. RobNY April 3rd, 2008 at 8:44 pm

    So does anybody have any info on why the magic sunglasses man got pulled for Scott Patterson when he was throwing a perfecto through 6? I know he isnt really that good but taking him out seems, to me, just mean.

  488. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 8:44 pm

    YES radar gun is unreliable. They always have Wang at 94-96 and everyone else (including the stadium gun) has him at 92-93. Wouldn’t take much stock in that.

  489. Fran April 3rd, 2008 at 8:44 pm

    Nice outing by Hughes – now if only the Yankees could give him some support.

    Toronto is going to Boston next. Hope they pitch this well against the Red Sox this weekend.

  490. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:45 pm

    Damon’s battling. Good.

  491. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:46 pm

    Wow finally!! We have a man on second. Do you have Jeter bunt? (at least we know he can’t hit into a dp.) :lol

  492. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:46 pm

    Maybe now that we’re out of DP range, we can get a rally going.

  493. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:46 pm

    Way to lead off the inning JD!!! Double over the right fielder’s head! DJ needs to move him to third at the least.

  494. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 8:46 pm

    Finally, another hit for Damon. And no DP for Jetes this time. :D

  495. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 8:46 pm

    If he manages another DP here – I just give up…

    well, i don’t give up, but you know what I mean

  496. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 8:47 pm

    Best part: Unless Johnny does something stupid Jeter can’t GIDP here! =D

    I imagine they have Patterson in to give him some innings because they want him up in NY pronto.

  497. Big Joe April 3rd, 2008 at 8:47 pm

    Jennifer, that’s a good question. I think its his bat not the slowness thingee. He hits a lot of tailor made DPs. His last 4 years 19, 15, 13 and 21 GIDPs its clearly not getting better and we all know what happened in the last years playoffs. Just saying that a #2 guy can’t be a high GIDP guy…its a key for that position.

  498. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 8:47 pm

    Heh, Paulie got ‘sucks’ past the censors. :D

  499. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 8:47 pm

    Jeter is lunging at everything! C’mon DJ stay back!

  500. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 8:47 pm

    Someone tell Jeter that the right side is the other way…. he’s better then this

  501. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 8:49 pm

    don’t boo that was a good thing :lol:

  502. Jeff NJ April 3rd, 2008 at 8:49 pm

    That’s the way to take one for the team Jetes!

  503. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 8:49 pm

    Oh yuck. Better than getting hit in the hand. And I almost wrote gitting. I’m watching too much Paul O’Neill :-D

    Think Abreu bunts?

  504. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 8:49 pm

    we’ll take the HBP!

  505. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:49 pm

    Does Bobby swing away now? Hopefully one swing is all we need.

  506. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:49 pm

    Buttermaker: Hey Jeter, next inside pitch, I want you to lean in to it.

    Jeter: Ah coach, I don’t want to get hit.

    Buttermaker: You want to win, don’t ya kid.

    Jeter: Plunk!

  507. Big Joe April 3rd, 2008 at 8:49 pm

    McGowan looks good except for his burns…silly looking things

  508. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:50 pm

    McGowan loses the zone and Jeet gets plunked. Gotta get something out of this!

  509. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:50 pm

    It was a breaking pitch, he wasn’t trying to hit him. He also just set up his dp. :lol:

  510. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:50 pm

    2-1… good time for a hit and run.

  511. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 8:51 pm

    Very hittable pitch there.

  512. Big Joe April 3rd, 2008 at 8:51 pm

    Now Bobby don’t GIDP and make me look bad. Double here!?

  513. Rocco April 3rd, 2008 at 8:51 pm

    i dont understand why they didnt bunt here.

  514. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:51 pm

    Well, he’s throwing the ball at Abreu’s feet, so maybe he can walk another one and bring up A-Rod.

  515. RobNY April 3rd, 2008 at 8:52 pm

    How many pitches does Phil have? Does he come back out for the 7th?

  516. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:53 pm

    He didn’t bunt because he’s the number 3 hitter.

  517. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 8:53 pm

    “i dont understand why they didnt bunt here.”

    They’ll walk alex.

  518. Phil Hughes is Saved and will be fine! Goodness.. April 3rd, 2008 at 8:53 pm

    I think Phil’s at 86 pitches

  519. Big Joe April 3rd, 2008 at 8:53 pm

    Phil is at 87…I think it will be Joe’s feel for his matchups here.

  520. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:53 pm

    Boy, how did that ball miss Abreu that time?
    Yeah! Abreu walks and the bags are juiced for A-Rod!

  521. RobNY April 3rd, 2008 at 8:53 pm

    and Your Daddy steps up to the plate

  522. Jeff NJ April 3rd, 2008 at 8:53 pm

    Let’s go A-Rod (don’t publish that, it might not meet the Peter rules)

  523. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:53 pm

    Now we have to do something here. Bases juiced for MVP! We have to take advantage. Get Hughes on the right side of this game.

  524. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 8:53 pm

    oh boy here we go

  525. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 8:53 pm

    All we need is a fly ball to score JD, don’t need to get greedy here.

  526. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 8:54 pm

    OK – runs now are critical…you do not let this chance pass you by

  527. Big Joe April 3rd, 2008 at 8:54 pm

    Abreu has some kind of eye. Although many of those weren’t especially close.

  528. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:54 pm

    Just a nice fly ball to deep right field. Score the run. Advance the runner from second to third.

  529. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 8:54 pm

    McGowan is tired. The velocity is there but the location has gone.

    Alex needs to be patient here.

  530. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 8:54 pm

    His changeup is FLAT

  531. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:55 pm

    Go, Yanks!!!

  532. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:56 pm

    Heck, I wouldn’t mind if he walks A-Rod. Just got to get a run across here. But I’d prefer for A-Rod to empty the bases, of course.

  533. PAT M. April 3rd, 2008 at 8:56 pm

    I’m surprised he’d still in CB

  534. Nathan April 3rd, 2008 at 8:56 pm

    Here comes Pay-Rod…

  535. Rocco April 3rd, 2008 at 8:56 pm

    ok i agree with not bunting… thanks! :(

  536. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:56 pm

    Yeah lets not be greedy. A deep fly ball. Lets score the run from third.

  537. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:56 pm

    That’ll do!!!

  538. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 8:56 pm

    I’ll take it.

  539. KG86 April 3rd, 2008 at 8:57 pm

    Good hustle by Damon.

  540. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 8:57 pm

    Whoo! One run and now 1st base open! It starts with one run!

  541. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 8:57 pm

    wooo we stoled a run

  542. Jeff NJ April 3rd, 2008 at 8:57 pm

    A Rod almost cost them a a run there telling Damon to stay at 3rd.

  543. kidjock April 3rd, 2008 at 8:57 pm

    Why did they leave him in there? His control has been off since the start of the inning.

  544. Big Joe April 3rd, 2008 at 8:57 pm

    What the heck is AROD doing…this guy can’t locate the empire state building…don’t just keep swinging.

  545. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 8:57 pm

    Yeah! 2-1 Jays now as the ball gets away from Zaun.

  546. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:57 pm

    I’ll still take a fly ball.

  547. Global Warming April 3rd, 2008 at 8:57 pm

    It’s about time we got a break. Ok I can finally cool off from seeing the Magic Man pulled with sixty friggen pitches and a no no.

    I really hope they can at least tie. Sac Fly would be nice.

  548. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:58 pm

    a free run – I will take it happily…

  549. matteo April 3rd, 2008 at 8:58 pm

    thanks dale d.

    arod told damon to hold cause he wanted the grand slam. i dont blame him.

  550. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 8:58 pm

    His changeup sucks. Midseason Alex crushes that.

  551. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 8:58 pm

    He was trying to get Alex out down and away all the pitches were down and away. :(

  552. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 8:58 pm

    can’t put the shift on now…let’s go!

  553. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 8:58 pm

    “Because this offense has been so damn pathetic, Hughes really can’t afford to give up a hit here. I’m really sick of these lousy starts.”

    Will you guys relax? Wait a week or two before losing all hope. Jeeze.

  554. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 8:58 pm

    Poor at bat by ARod. The infield was back. They would have scored on any kind of contact.

  555. Nathan April 3rd, 2008 at 8:58 pm

    Wow thats a surprise… A-rod…

    Some clear the ducks already !!

  556. John April 3rd, 2008 at 8:59 pm

    stop trying to yank it outQ

  557. RobNY April 3rd, 2008 at 9:00 pm

    What in the hell was that…..

  558. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 9:00 pm

    (well, at least we tied it)

  559. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:00 pm

    Dang, Rios has a gun. At least the Yankees tied!

  560. Phil Hughes is Saved and will be fine! Goodness.. April 3rd, 2008 at 9:00 pm

    whatever works

  561. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 9:00 pm

    Ah! Bad Abreu!

  562. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 9:00 pm

    Another hanger! I’ll take it, but Giambi’s gotta do more with that.

  563. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:00 pm

    OH, YES!!!

  564. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 9:00 pm

    Oh Bowa…. how I miss you

  565. John April 3rd, 2008 at 9:00 pm

    Funny, I always thought of Abreu as a good baserunner.

  566. Doreen April 3rd, 2008 at 9:01 pm

    Glass half full: Tie game and Hughes doesn’t have to suffer a loss when he pitched well enough to win.

  567. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 9:01 pm

    As good as McGowan was last year he looks even better now.

    McGowan didn’t have a great change up last year.

    This year – it looks like a real weapon.

    He’s maturing as a pitcher – he’s going to be a force if he stays healthy.

  568. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:01 pm

    Good rip by Giambi to get the tying run in. What happened to Abreu getting picked at third!? At least we tied the game, but can we play a little crisper please?

  569. yanksrule57 April 3rd, 2008 at 9:02 pm

    Good evening all,

    The Yanks have had some poor base running decisions so far this year. Maybe it’s the cold weather and they are anxious to get back into the dugout where it’s warm. Ha! 8)

  570. Nathan April 3rd, 2008 at 9:02 pm

    Innings limit !!

  571. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:02 pm

    Giambino is 0 for 8 so far this season – does that count as a mini slump?

  572. John April 3rd, 2008 at 9:02 pm

    Funny, I always thought of Abreu as a good baserunner

  573. AlexCT April 3rd, 2008 at 9:02 pm

    did any of you guys catch the modells joba ad? i was a bit surprised by that

  574. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:02 pm

    Meacham really hasn’t done too well as the 3rd base coach. We’ve just got to hope that he improves as the season goes on.

  575. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 9:03 pm

    McGowan’s changeup is farrrrrr from a weapon. It’s actually been really flat, and the Yankees are just so far out in front and flailing at it. The first one to A-Rod, the 2-2 to Abreu, and the last one to Jason were particularly bad. I like McGowan, but he was very hittable today.

  576. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 9:04 pm

    Why do they have Posada in the pen? To warm up pitchers?

  577. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 9:04 pm

    This is the first real test for the yank’s pen. Let’s see what Traber has.

    Hughes pitched a terrific game.

    It’s hard to believe Hughes is the second youngest player in all of baseball even this year.

  578. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 9:04 pm

    nice Billy

  579. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 9:04 pm

    Welcome to New York, Billy Traber.

  580. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:04 pm

    Nice curve ball by Traber.

  581. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:05 pm

    Alright, so Traber gets his out. Bruney better hold on.

  582. DMan April 3rd, 2008 at 9:05 pm

    I love Billy Traber.

  583. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:05 pm

    Wow… a K – who is this Traber?

  584. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 9:05 pm

    Welcome to the Yankees Billy

  585. Big Joe April 3rd, 2008 at 9:05 pm

    JoeT – You are right on. Our biggest loss of the offseason was not Torre or Donnie it was Larry Freakin’ Bowa. I’m telling you, we will be shaking our heads all year about Meacham (just like the old days). I live in florida and saw alot of marlins games on TV and Joe Girardi won the manager of the year in spite of Bobby’s coaching. He must have incriminating photos of Joe G or something.

  586. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 9:05 pm

    Anyone else think that it would be very easy for a runner on 2nd to pick up Traber’s pitch?

  587. yanksrule57 April 3rd, 2008 at 9:06 pm

    This is the first time I’ve seen Traber pitch. i see what they mean about the quirky delivery. He kind of holds the ball a long time then flips it across his body.

  588. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 9:06 pm

    “I love Billy Traber.”

    can we hold off on this ? :?

  589. PAT M. April 3rd, 2008 at 9:07 pm

    I think someone should inform Mr. Abreu that he didn’t get a ticket for this game, he’s actually playing in it….

  590. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:07 pm

    The war between the bullpens is ON…

  591. yanksrule57 April 3rd, 2008 at 9:07 pm

    DJ

    I don’t think so. I went back on my TIVO and looked, and he seems to hide the ball pretty deep in his glove.

  592. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 9:08 pm

    there’s the brian bruney we know and love…

  593. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 9:08 pm

    you kidding me right

  594. Gitmo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:09 pm

    How can you hold off on the “I love Billy Traber”‘s? He’s got a 27 K/9. That’s pretty good, Brandon. ;)

  595. Countdown April 3rd, 2008 at 9:09 pm

    who’s this pitcher wearing Brunney’s old number??

  596. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 9:09 pm

    Bowa didn’t want to be here. I don’t care what he said. He was talking with Seattle, while he was saying he wanted to stay with the Yankees. I’m sure if he wanted to stay here he would still be here no matter who Joe wanted for his third base coach.

  597. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 9:09 pm

    “McGowan’s changeup is farrrrrr from a weapon. It’s actually been really flat, and the Yankees are just so far out in front and flailing at it. ”

    That is what a good change up is supposed to do – it gets hitters out in front and has them flailing at pitches.

    Most pitcher’s change ups don’t have a lot of movement to them (there are exceptions like the Pedro of old).

    So, yes it looks like a real weapon because it’s doing exactly what a change up is supposed to do – disrupt the hitter’s timing.

    It also speaks volumes about a young pitcher like McGowan that with the bases loaded he has enough confidence in his change to throw it to the best player in baseball.

    That’s all you need to know about how good that change is.

    McGowan already had a terrific fastball, slider and curve.

    Him adding even an above average change up makes him all the more devastating.

    If he’s got a patient, disciplined team like the yankees off balance and flailing the change is doing it’s job.

  598. myrtlebeachfan April 3rd, 2008 at 9:09 pm

    That was a very nice pitch by Traber. Anyone else kind of scared to see Bruney coming in? I guess Traber is a specialist, but it’s not like righties have a terrible time getting lefties out. Seems somewhat pointless to have someone there to get a single out and then bring in another pitcher.

  599. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:09 pm

    One more to go!!!

  600. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 9:11 pm

    Boy…the Yankees are not a graceful team at all.

  601. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:11 pm

    Alright! Bruney did his job!

  602. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 9:11 pm

    Right now, Jeter’s going “… amateur”

  603. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 9:11 pm

    OK – one more run so we can see what who we want to see out there…let’s go…

  604. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 9:11 pm

    “I think someone should inform Mr. Abreu that he didn’t get a ticket for this game, he’s actually playing in it….”

    Good thing you said that JUST in time lol

  605. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 9:11 pm

    and Bobby thought the wall was the only obstacle in Yankee Stadium :)

  606. kidjock April 3rd, 2008 at 9:11 pm

    Let’s get one run on the board and go home (joba in the 8th and Mo in the 9th).

  607. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:12 pm

    I remember when the Yanks first got Bruney and he had something like a 0.81 ERA. He’s always had the stuff, but his problem is always going to be control. He gets the Yanks out of the inning there-good play by Abreu.

  608. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 9:12 pm

    Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the 2008 NY Yankees bullpen!

  609. dale d April 3rd, 2008 at 9:13 pm

    the new improved brian bruney
    I like that!

  610. Big Joe April 3rd, 2008 at 9:14 pm

    jennifer – I never said we fired larry or that we didn’t want him only that we will miss him because he is the best 3rd base coach in MLB and he really helped Robby Cano come into his own in the field. He really was a presence.

  611. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:15 pm

    Wow, KC swept Detroit? Not bad at all.

  612. Phil Hughes is Saved and will be fine! Goodness.. April 3rd, 2008 at 9:15 pm

    wanna see 5 runs scored now. :)

  613. Renee in Boston April 3rd, 2008 at 9:15 pm

    pete, in regards to suzyn’s comment. the espn2 broadcast of the game last night reported it as well.

  614. Jeff NJ April 3rd, 2008 at 9:15 pm

    Joba sighting!

  615. EY April 3rd, 2008 at 9:16 pm

    This year’s bullpen looks great. A lefty specialist who actually gets lefty out. Joba. And others. No more blowing early leads like last year.

  616. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 9:16 pm

    CB…

    I do like that McGowan has the gumption to throw his change, in fact, that’s Hughes’ main (and only) real problem at this stage in the game. However, the Yanks in midseason form will clobber that changeup. When it’s that flat, it WILL go far. McGowan wasn’t really all that great tonight, his fastball had lots of movement, but it was all over the place. Look at the pitchers with great changeups…Santana, Pedro, and even Ian Kennedy and Edwar Ramirez to a certain extent…those things DANCE.

    McGowan’s changeup is very hittable, the Yankees were sitting on his fastball for some reason even though it was not anywhere near the zone.

  617. Countdown April 3rd, 2008 at 9:17 pm

    Joba?

  618. Keith FL April 3rd, 2008 at 9:17 pm

    Man..these Blue Jays have some great arms in the pen and BJ Ryan is hurt…wow….we could use 1 or 2 of these guys…

  619. Big Joe April 3rd, 2008 at 9:18 pm

    Detroit can’t like this….

    “Already missing Curtis Granderson because of a broken hand, the Tigers played without Miguel Cabrera, who is day to day with a quadriceps strain, then saw designated hitter Gary Sheffield tear a tendon in his left ring finger on a play at second in the eighth inning” from ESPN’s recap of tonights game.

    Thats a lot of cash getting hurt.

  620. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 9:18 pm

    IT’S JOBA TIME ! :twisted:

  621. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:18 pm

    Here comes Joba for the 8th.

  622. yanksrule57 April 3rd, 2008 at 9:19 pm

    It’s Joba Time!

  623. Jax April 3rd, 2008 at 9:19 pm

    Yikes Melancon left the game. Hope he’s not hurt.

  624. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:20 pm

    Wow, the Tigers are really hurting…if Sheff’s got a tendon injury, that’ll keep him out for a couple of weeks at least if it’s severe.

  625. YankeeJosh April 3rd, 2008 at 9:20 pm

    I like how Girardi is working everyone in from the bullpen.

    One of my biggest criticisms of Torre was bullpen management, and I think he would have gone to Hawkins (this years Viz) or Joba in the 7th. Girardi is willing to give everyone a shot, and it’ll pay off by giving them confidence and saving the arms from burnout.

  626. Fran April 3rd, 2008 at 9:22 pm

    Just three games into the season and I believe everyone in the Yankees bullpen has pitched. Sometimes when everyone pitches it is not so good – but so far so good for the bullpen.

  627. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 9:22 pm

    Teddy,

    By mid-season McGowan’s change up will be even better.

    And your not seeing how the change up fits inside of McGowan’s arsenal.

    The change up is Santana’s second pitch. It was Pedro’s second pitch. It is Kennedy’s best pitch. Same for Edwar.

    The change up is McGowan’s fourth pitch! Fourth – not second.

    The important thing with it for McGowan isn’t how good it is in a vacuum but how good it is in the context of his existing repertoire.

    That’s the function of a fourth pitch – it should complement and fit in with the existing pitches.

    McGowan already throws 3 plus pitches – adding even a league average 4th pitch is enormous for a young pitcher.

    Independently his change up may be hittable. But when you mix it in with how good his fastball, slider and curve are it’s an entirely different story.

  628. Keith FL April 3rd, 2008 at 9:23 pm

    did anyone think Sheffield would not get hurt this year…funny Leyland on Mike and the Mad Dog last year said he thought the Yankees had too many stars when the Tigers beat us in the ALDS…now they look like they have too many stars and and are basing their success on what they look like on paper…..just an interesting note…

  629. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:23 pm

    Joba’s 1st K…

  630. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:23 pm

    Joba K’s somebody…there’s a surprise there!

  631. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 9:24 pm

    Uh, that’s called breathing, Kay.

  632. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 9:24 pm

    Keith,

    good point

  633. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:25 pm

    Joba’s 2nd out…

  634. dude April 3rd, 2008 at 9:25 pm

    his son is freakin green

  635. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 9:25 pm

    K-Rod is more obnoxious than Pappelbon, Joba, and Howard Dean combined.

  636. RobNY April 3rd, 2008 at 9:25 pm

    nailed that curveball…

  637. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 9:26 pm

    Not Yankee-killer Rios, again!!!

  638. dude April 3rd, 2008 at 9:26 pm

    his tongue is freakin green…

  639. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 9:27 pm

    That’s really devastating news for the Tiger’s. Quadriceps strains can take a while to completely heal. And that ruptured tendon won’t completely heal without surgery. Sheffield can play through it as he tried to a few years ago (also had a ruptured tendon) but it’s not easy, especially with the force he generates on his swing.

  640. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 9:27 pm

    CB

    Very true…I know that it is just his 4th pitch. But I cannot seem to ignore the fact that Abreu, Arod, and Giambi all had three very easy pitches to hit with men on base and could not do so. With a straight-change like McGowan’s, it should go very far when it is not located well. Just look at what happens to Tom Glavine when his change is an inch off target (I think Met fans know, pretty well). Although, like you said, that is Glavine’s go-to pitch. But still, a straight, fat change should be turned around by 3 perennial All-Stars.

  641. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 9:27 pm

    Nice Joba.

  642. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 9:28 pm

    Anyone know when we have the Tigers on the schedule? Soon, I hope…

  643. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 9:28 pm

    Prospects update

    Dellin Betances single A debut

    5.0 IP 3 H, 2 ER, 2 R, 2 BB, 8 K’s

    no word yet about what happened to Melancon

  644. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 9:28 pm

    Okay, let’s get two here.

  645. Jeff NJ April 3rd, 2008 at 9:28 pm

    Time to score the go ahead run or runs here. How about a crooked number to give Mo some breathing room?

  646. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:28 pm

    And Joba retires the Jays. Yanks have got to get a run for Mo to work with.

  647. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 9:28 pm

    And Joba pumps his fist, thrusts his pelvis at the opposing dugout three times, and then punches the Jays batboy in the face.

  648. Big Joe April 3rd, 2008 at 9:29 pm

    dude, his son’s tongue is freakin’ green?

  649. anti-mussina April 3rd, 2008 at 9:29 pm

    what a surprise melancon is injured!

  650. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:29 pm

    We need some runs now… Go Yanks!!!

  651. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:30 pm

    The Yanks face the Tigers at the end of the month.

  652. anti-mussina April 3rd, 2008 at 9:30 pm

    stop sucking up to mcgowan, cb. he sucks just like the blowjays.

  653. Countdown April 3rd, 2008 at 9:30 pm

    really, why did Joba kick the batboy??

  654. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 9:31 pm

    Brandon,

    I saw that as well – absolutely fantastic new with Betances. His season was so disappointing last year with the elbow.

    I’m still concerned about him not repeating his motion consistently and that putting strain on his elbow.

    But that’s a good start.

    And also – if you want to see an impressive line by a young pitcher check out what Rick Porcello did against Tampa tonight.

    It’s rare for a high school pitcher to start in high A. Porcello could be very special if he stays healthy.

  655. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 9:31 pm

    MELKYYY :)

  656. PAT M. April 3rd, 2008 at 9:31 pm

    I only watched the McGowan’s last three inningS…My first observation is that he’s taken the next step in his development and he’s only going to get better, and his change for a 4th pitch is going to make him extremely effective as the word gets around the league…..Toronto will be nipping at everyone’s tail all season…

  657. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 9:31 pm

    Hehe, well if frustrating Melky makes him take it out with a hit, I’m all for it.

  658. Rob April 3rd, 2008 at 9:32 pm

    Has anyone tried to get gameday? It doesn’t seem to load.

  659. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 9:32 pm

    i’m not watching the game – who’s son’s tongue is green? and can someone send me a pic?? :)

  660. dude April 3rd, 2008 at 9:32 pm

    sorry anti-mussina i meant tongue not son.. something wrong with my mind right now.. long day…
    but yeah when he licked his hand his tongue was very clearly green… creepy

  661. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 9:32 pm

  665. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 9:33 pm

    Not a good game for Bill Smith or Twins fans to watch.

    Hughes pitches very well and the guy who they claimed was nothing better than a 4th OF (Melky) looks like he’s improved his plate discipline and at least so far, looks like a .300 hitter (plus a couple nice defensive plays).

  666. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 9:33 pm

    CB, Porcello has always been special to bad the Tigers snatched him. I heard somewhere Dellin’s goal is to throw 100 innings this year and then they might shut him down is this true ?

  667. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:33 pm

    I just tried Gameday…it loaded for me. I’m doing a live blog if you want to follow the game and can’t get gameday to load.

  668. anti-mussina April 3rd, 2008 at 9:34 pm

    wow cb you like to suck up to other teams pitchers? porcello blows just like the team he plays for (detroit kittens)

  669. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 9:34 pm

    Ditto on Porcello, he’s a special kid.

  670. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 9:34 pm

    Now, THAT’S how you bunt.

  671. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:34 pm

    Alright!!!

  672. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 9:34 pm

    Well, there’s smallball for you!

  673. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:34 pm

    Excellent bobble by Downs! 2 on and no out!

  674. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 9:34 pm

    nice bunt play Joe!

  675. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    Teddy – again, I’m not disagreeing with you at all.

    But I really think the way the yankee hitter’s were unable to handle that pitch tells you how hard it is for a hitter when a power pitcher like McGowan adds even a semblance of a decent change.

    It’s too hard to have to gear up for that 93-95 mph fast ball with plus movement and then get the change – even if its not great.

    The other thing I’d add to this – I don’t think the yankee hitters were prepared at all for McGowan to throw so many changes. I doubt that was in the scouting report. Next game they will be very aware of it.

    This is also why, as you said before, Hughes needs to add that change. Even more than the slider, Hughes total potential is going to depend on developing a change. If he does – lights out.

  676. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    SWEET! Bunt and make things happen…. JETER BUNT AGAIN!! Set it up for Abreu and A-Rod

  677. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    Verlander and then Porcello

    could be scary

  678. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    Jeter, lay out it down. No DPs.

  679. NJ in Tampa April 3rd, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    Lets bunt them over.

  680. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    he was safe !!! good consecutive bunts !

  681. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    He looked safe…

  682. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 9:36 pm

    Well, this is really good to watch. Let’s see Bobby and A-Rod get it done.

  683. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:36 pm

    Good bunt by Jeet! Bring them home, Bobby!

  684. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:36 pm

    Now let’s score!!!

  685. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 9:36 pm

    now we’re playing baseball…. he’s gotta give Abreu something to hit now

    (replay shows Jeter is safe btw)

  686. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 9:36 pm

    There’s another blown call. Love these umps.

  687. Big Joe April 3rd, 2008 at 9:36 pm

    Well thats the only way to keep Captn Jetes out of the DP. I’m fine with it.

  688. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 9:36 pm

    CB

    Betances is a pretty delicate kid, it could be true. He would really benefit from putting on 20-25lbs. He hasn’t pitched a lot in his pro career, and I think he’s kind of a project for the Yankees. I would be surprised if he gets to 100, actually.

  689. Countdown April 3rd, 2008 at 9:37 pm

    OMG!

    we bunted a runner into scoring position!!

    God Almighty, small ball!!

  690. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 9:37 pm

    this ump really needs to get his head out of his ….

  691. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 9:38 pm

    YEH BABY !!!

  692. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 9:38 pm

    BOBBY ROCKS!!! awesome…c’mon a-rod, let’s get some insurance…

  693. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 9:38 pm

    Damon didn’t advance? He didn’t read that very well.

  694. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 9:38 pm

    Good job, Bubby. The only lefty who’s hit in this series.

  695. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:38 pm

    Bloop by Abreu brings home Melky!

  696. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 9:38 pm

    WHOO! Yeah Bobby! Just exactly what we needed!

  697. PAT M. April 3rd, 2008 at 9:39 pm

    Bobby Abreu is playing tonight,,,

  698. Jeff NJ April 3rd, 2008 at 9:39 pm

    Nice Joba looking at a W.

  699. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 9:39 pm

    sorry Pete, I know the rules, and I know I won’t be the only one… with that being said: YESSSSS!!!!

    sorry back to intellegent posting – Lets go A-Rod lets get some insurance….

  700. V April 3rd, 2008 at 9:39 pm

    I call a double steal to keep the double play off.

  701. NJ in Tampa April 3rd, 2008 at 9:40 pm

    Time to warm up Mo.

  702. Countdown April 3rd, 2008 at 9:40 pm

    Joe Girardi just MANUFACTURED two runs!!

  703. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 9:40 pm

    That was a bad swing on a bad fastball.

  704. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:40 pm

    C’mon A-rod!!!

  705. V April 3rd, 2008 at 9:40 pm

    :-(

    Blue Jays had ARod beat tonight.

  706. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 9:40 pm

    CB

    Hughes changeup is actually pretty good in the very few times I’ve seen him use it. I just wish he’d get some guts to use it, especially late in ballgames and with guys on base. Hughes would also benefit from the explosive fastball that I’ve seen him have before he was called up. I think the hammy and ankle injuries did have an impact on his fastball. I saw him pitch in Trenton two years ago and it was scary. He was mostly 88-91 tonight, but that could just be the cold and the fact it’s early. But then again McGowan was throwing 94-95 and Joba 97. But we’ll see.

  707. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:40 pm

    Aiyee…hopefully Giambi gets his first hit here.

  708. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 9:41 pm

    Jason, really good time for your first hit.

  709. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 9:41 pm

    Teddy,

    Have you seen Betances recently? He’s put on a lot of muscle weight – a lot. He’s not there yet but he is filling out his frame well.

    When you first saw him you were kind of worried that he could be one of those tall lanky kids who is just going to stay thin. But he’s put on weight.

    My concern with him are his mechanics and repeating his motion.

  710. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:42 pm

    Maybe be big G will improve to 1-8…

  711. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:42 pm

    Giambi gets plunked and loads the bases

  712. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 9:42 pm

    Come on Robbie. Let’s get some insurance!

  713. Jeff NJ April 3rd, 2008 at 9:42 pm

    Ah Mr. Cano, time to earn that big raise.

  714. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 9:42 pm

    Cano, really good time for your first decent AB for a while.

  715. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 9:42 pm

    Did you see giambi say “that hurt” – I’m watching live now :)

  716. Don Vito A. Bellamo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:43 pm

    This will be a nice win to get with A-Rod on an off night. With this lineup,,,,he does NOT have to carry the time each and every night….This is going to be a nice series win.

  717. PAT M. April 3rd, 2008 at 9:43 pm

    Hughes has a better than average change…It’s about confidence and solid command at this stage……

  718. Laura April 3rd, 2008 at 9:43 pm

    No way Torre bunts twice in a row if he were here. He would have let Jeets swing away.

  719. fleas (almost always negative) April 3rd, 2008 at 9:43 pm

    these umps are horrible. MLB really needs to do something about these crappy little blue men!

  720. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 9:44 pm

    CB

    Glad to hear Betances bulked up. And yeah, you’re right, mechanics and repeating a motion is tough when you’re like 6-9…which is why RJ was a late bloomer. Has anybody heard anything on JB Cox?

  721. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 9:44 pm

    Didn’t see anyone else make mention of this. But someone posted earlier that melancon is injured. Any truth to this?

    Also either we are very smart or very stupid. Listened to a few innings on the radio Suzy and John were carrying on about how Joba should stay in the pen. You know even the Jays players said how can you move him. I’d like to ask Suzy or John if they think Beckett or Santana should be in the pen. I wonder what they would say to that.

  722. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:44 pm

    Go Robbie!!!

  723. fleas (almost always negative) April 3rd, 2008 at 9:44 pm

    Laura, I totally agree with you.

  724. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:44 pm

    !@#$@#$!!#$@#$…

  725. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 9:44 pm

    “I just wish he’d get some guts to use it, especially late in ballgames and with guys on base. ”

    But that’s the thing – that’s the hard part with developing a change. It’s a context pitch – it’s not a good pitch until you’re willing to use it.

    Pitcher’s know what pitches are weapons – if you’re not willing to throw it at a key time it’s just a show me pitch.

    That’s why I was so surprised and impressed with McGowan tonight. I was just really surprised that all of a sudden he’s got the confidence in that pitch to throw it to ARod with the bases juiced.

    It’s a feel pitch. That’s hard for a young pitcher. Hughes missing so much time last year set back his development of that change.

    It’ll come. He really doesn’t need a 95+ heater – his fastball has terrific late life.

  726. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 9:45 pm

    Oof. Hope Mo is sharp tonight.

  727. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:45 pm

    Oh well…Mo time!

  728. Phil Hughes is Saved and will be fine! Goodness.. April 3rd, 2008 at 9:45 pm

    Dang it

  729. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 9:45 pm

    Someone said JB is doing very well so far. I can’t recall who, maybe CB or Sj44.

  730. Rocco April 3rd, 2008 at 9:46 pm

    jays are going to sweep the sux… you heard it here first.

  731. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:46 pm

    GO, MO!!! We need you right now!!!

  732. Big Joe April 3rd, 2008 at 9:46 pm

    tim Donaghy is available to be an ump. Maybe Selig should look him up.

  733. fleas (almost always negative) April 3rd, 2008 at 9:47 pm

    I am sure the Twins are so happy about not taking Melky and Hughes right now :-)

    Let’s go Mo, get your nose cleared out and throw some cutters and bring this game to close!

    Joba, please fist pump as often as you like.. did anyone see Burnett fist pumping yesterday? Why is that not a big deal? People are so lame sometimes!

  734. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 9:48 pm

    JB Cox was throwing very well down in Tampa. Nardi was very happy with what he saw of him.

    He’s going to get to AAA very quickly. The jump to the majors – who knows but I think he’ll move through the system quickly as he was so good in AA even before he got hurt.

  735. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 9:48 pm

    if John and Suzy say Joba should be in the pen, then the Yankees should stretch him out and put him in the rotation ASAP lol

    Personally I want him as the future closer…. we’ve taken MO for granted the past 13 years, those last 3 outs are the toughest to get. Watch a team like the Rays, they’ll be ahead all game, then those last three outs they can’t get and lose a lot of ball games that way.

  736. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 9:48 pm

    God, I remember that walk-off.

  737. fleas (almost always negative) April 3rd, 2008 at 9:48 pm

    WHHHAT?? see what I mean about the umps!

  738. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 9:49 pm

    You know what ticks me off about the umps. If you are going to have a small zone, at least have the same zone throughout the game. Don’t change it depending on who is pitching.

    According to John they gave the Jays a letter high strike. Well if they gave the letter high strike the entire night, Hughes would have been perfect.

  739. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 9:49 pm

    JoeT

    It’s not even close. Teams lose games because of bad starting pitching far more often than they lose them in the ninth.

    C’mon Mo.

  740. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:50 pm

    Time for a DP. Better to face Stewart than Thomas, hopefully.

  741. Rishi April 3rd, 2008 at 9:50 pm

    Do you ever notice how when Michael Kay says some guy on the opposing team is having a bad night — they get a hit…how does he do that? and how can we get him to stop…

  742. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 9:50 pm

    I remember Harold Reynolds was talking about Craig Hansen and JB Cox right after they were both drafted saying how they would both be up helping their clubs in the pennant race that year. How off base was that?

    I think Hansen was shell shocked and JB wasn’t really given the chances early on and has been injured the last year or so…

  743. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 9:50 pm

    How big was Frank Thomas getting ejected?

  744. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 9:51 pm

    Joe, we might have a future closer in the minors. Joba is believed to be our future Johan.

  745. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 9:52 pm

    JB Cox had TJ surgery. He was pretty damn good when he did pitch. He’ll contribute next year for sure.

    Mo, don’t do this to me.

  746. Phil Hughes is Saved and will be fine! Goodness.. April 3rd, 2008 at 9:52 pm

    come on Mo!

  747. Jax April 3rd, 2008 at 9:52 pm

    It’s speculation that Melancon is hurt. He did leave the game though.

  748. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:53 pm

    One more for Mo to nail this one down.

  749. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 9:53 pm

    Please don’t let the rotting remains of Shannon Stewart tie this game, Mo.

  750. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:53 pm

    LAST ONE TO GO…

  751. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 9:53 pm

    Check that, it’s Hill. Don’t let him do it either.

  752. Tommy April 3rd, 2008 at 9:53 pm

    comments here much better than nyyfans

  753. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 9:54 pm

    Jax just cause he left the game? Was it early on?

  754. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 9:54 pm

    Aron Hill is a dangerous hitter in this spot. He’s not going to try to do a lot.

  755. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:54 pm

    One more strike to go… Go Mo!!!

  756. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 9:54 pm

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAH

  757. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:54 pm

    Hill K’s and the Yankees win!

  758. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 April 3rd, 2008 at 9:54 pm

    Nice game everyone! Got to go get some work done, catch you all later!

  759. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:55 pm

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  760. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 9:55 pm

    Bill, if you’d called that a ball I might have killed you.

  761. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 9:55 pm

    This was a good game. It was one we almost let get away with the dp. It was a well pitched game, shame Phil didn’t get his first win of the season. but the team got his second. :D

  762. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 9:55 pm

    Nice. Like the old Joe used to say … if we win every series, we’ll be a 100 win team.

  763. Jeff NJ April 3rd, 2008 at 9:55 pm

    Ok we won the first series. Our arch nemesis the Tampa Rays come to town tomorrow.

  764. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 9:55 pm

    where are all the trolls tonight? :)

    3 down, 170+ to go.

  765. Paolo April 3rd, 2008 at 9:55 pm

    We have won it the Angels’ way… I will take it!!!

  766. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 9:55 pm

    “It’s speculation that Melancon is hurt. He did leave the game though.”

    he was called into the game and then taken out no one knows what the hell happened yet

  767. Rocco April 3rd, 2008 at 9:56 pm

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  768. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:56 pm

    Wait…the season isn’t over yet?

  769. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 9:57 pm

    I can’t wait to hear postgame coaches corner :D

  770. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 9:57 pm

    Abreu doesnt even know who the Blue Jays SP was tonight (McGowan)…

    “Halladay, uh uh uh Burnett, and, uh, the guy who pitched tonight.”

  771. JoeT YANKEES April 3rd, 2008 at 9:57 pm

    Jennifer – very true, and I hope we do because i’d LOVE to have Joba as a starter, without a doubt he can help us out more as a starter… but i’m a firm believer that the 9th inning is a lot harder to pitch then people give closers credit for… hopefully we do have a dominant arm that can do it as well as Joba can

  772. Countdown April 3rd, 2008 at 9:57 pm

    Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaa COMEBACK KYDS!!

  773. Phil Hughes is Saved and will be fine! Goodness.. April 3rd, 2008 at 9:58 pm

    Nice Win. :)

  774. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 9:58 pm

    On the boo scale, how bad will Johnson get it? I guess if it is very loud, it will prove that most Yankee fans are very knowledgeable, since they watched st.

  775. Ron April 3rd, 2008 at 9:58 pm

    As nice is it was to see that we might have the pitching this year to win low scoring games, I’d like to see some offense against the Rays.

  776. Yazman April 3rd, 2008 at 9:59 pm

    Whoever those pitchers are that the Yanks sent out in the 8th and 9th innings — they seem pretty good ;)

  777. Teddy April 3rd, 2008 at 9:59 pm

    Melancon is viewed internally as the Yanks successor to either Mo or Joba, eventually. Ross O may be a setup guy, and JB Cox will be a very, very tricky middle reliever at some point.

  778. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 9:59 pm

    Brandon did he throw a pitch or anything?

  779. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 9:59 pm

    I hope the Yanks don’t do anything stupid, regardless of what Johnson did. We don’t need anyone else to go and get suspended in the regular season. Johnson will definitely hear it from the crowd, though. I expect the umps might warn the benches prior to the game.

  780. Fran April 3rd, 2008 at 10:00 pm

    Another great pitching performance by Hughes and the bullpen.

    Boston Dave – you are right. Winning keeps the trolls away!

  781. YankeeJosh April 3rd, 2008 at 10:01 pm

    After all the close losses last year, it’s nice to see two one-run victories so early in the year. This team, in a small sampling, has found ways to win, even though they haven’t yet started hitting the way they can.

  782. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 10:01 pm

    I assume this is tongue and cheek
    http://emedia.thetimes-tribune.....fault.aspx
    Top first: Don’t have this confirmed, but I’m pretty sure Kei Igawa is the first Japanese pitcher to strike out the side in the first inning on opening day in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre franchise history.

    I also hate all those stupid stats.

  783. Steph April 3rd, 2008 at 10:01 pm

    As long as the Yankees are leading in the score, there won’t be trolls. When they’re down in a game, the trolls will be here. If they lose, it’s going to be overrun by trolls.

  784. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 10:01 pm

    The Jays outscored the Yankees this series 9 runs to 6.

    Despite that the yanks took 2 of 3.

    For the yankees to take 2 out of 3 this series given how fantastic Halladay, Burnett and McGowan were this series is great way to start the season.

    Taking 2 of 3 with the way they pitched says a lot. That was brutal facing those arms.

    I don’t think they take 2 of these 3 games last year.

    Last year the yankees simply wouldn’t have had the pitching (both starters and the pen) to match up with the jays.

    What a strong start by Phil. Second youngest player in the majors and he gives Toronto nothing while McGowan is shutting out his offense.

    Have to give the pen an enormous amount of credit. They were huge again tonight.

    And finally you have to give Girardi a lot of credit. He brough Joba in with the score tied – a lot of managers (not just Torre) would only bring Joba in with a lead, especially with the innings limit.

    Girardi brought in Joba and then tried to manufacture a run. They scratched out that third run just like they did against Halladay.

  785. Brian (from PA) April 3rd, 2008 at 10:01 pm

    So the Yankees win a series 2 out of 3, scoring a total of 7 runs. That’s certainly something we aren’t used to.

  786. Jax April 3rd, 2008 at 10:02 pm

    Well if he was brought in the game then taken out then maybe the manager changed his mind in who he wanted in the game?

  787. trisha April 3rd, 2008 at 10:02 pm

    Nice game.

    I’m kind of lost not being able to say YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In my parlance is says exactly what it has to. Not everything has to be intellectual discourse! Especially in a fast-moving game.

    Anyway, I got to say it all I wanted to. Just not here…

    :(

  788. Yankees Chick April 3rd, 2008 at 10:02 pm

    Another win. I guess the ghost of Joe Torre is now gone.

  789. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 10:02 pm

    other pitchers who would make great closers:

    Verlander
    Beckett
    Peavy
    etc.

    enough with the Joba staying in the bullpen talk before he’s given a shot to start.

  790. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 10:03 pm

    The Yankees won’t do anything. As far as they are concerned it is over. the Rays, well they are another story. They have nothing to lose, well except more games. :P

    I think it will be over, but it would be nice to hear a shower of boos raining on Johnson. :D

  791. Jeff NJ April 3rd, 2008 at 10:03 pm

    Anyone see if Joba pumped his fists? If not, what else are Mike and the Mad Dog going to talk about for 5 hours tomorrow?

  792. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 10:03 pm

    CB,

    who is the youngest pitcher?

  793. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 10:04 pm

    Sorry bad math – the jays outscored the Yanks 9 runs to 8 and the yanks still took 2 out of 3….

  794. pat April 3rd, 2008 at 10:04 pm

    One of the big knocks last year was the Yankees couldn’t win the low scoring close games. We’ve had 3 so far this year and won 2.

    I’m not going to make it through a season of 3-2 come from behind wins.

  795. trisha April 3rd, 2008 at 10:04 pm

    Hughes is tremendously poised, mature, and effective.

    He is also the second youngest player in the majors.

    Girardi is a fabulous manager in my estimation.
    Life is good. Now let the Sux deal with the Jays!

  796. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 10:05 pm

    BD,

    Phil Hughes is the youngest pitcher in the majors and the second youngest player overall.

    The only player in the majors younger than phil is Justin Upton on the D’Backs who is only 20.

    We’ve heard Phil’s name for so long its hard to remember how young he is and how much better he’s going to get.

    How many 21 year olds go out there against a division rival and throw a game like that?

  797. trisha April 3rd, 2008 at 10:05 pm

    Anyone know if web gems have started yet? If so Bobby definitely got one.

    Paul O’Neil said he thinks the Jays have the top three pitchers in the majors.

  798. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 10:06 pm

    the Sux avoid Burnett and McGowan but Marcum should be tough, Halladay is Halladay, and Litsch actually gave the Sox some trouble last season

  799. trisha April 3rd, 2008 at 10:06 pm

    Actually the best 1-2-3 in the majors.

  800. smilineyes835 April 3rd, 2008 at 10:06 pm

    Great game tonight

  801. Call me Stinkie - April 3rd, 2008 at 10:07 pm

  803. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 10:07 pm

    no one reported him throwing a pitch that is the good news

  804. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 10:07 pm

    Jeff,

    After a Yankee win? Hmm. What’s happening in the NHL nowadays?

  805. Shirley April 3rd, 2008 at 10:08 pm

    Hughes just proved tonight that it was a right decision for the Yankees not to trade him for Santana.

  806. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 10:08 pm

    trisha,

    im assuming he meant the top 1,2, and 3 combo in the majors right?

    not the three best individual pitchers

  807. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 10:08 pm

    They had this over at RAB – Peter Gammons and Keith Law both picked Phil Hughes as a sleeper pick for the Cy Young.

    They both also picked McGowan as a sleeper Cy Young candidate.

  808. DJ April 3rd, 2008 at 10:09 pm

    I wonder if Joe puts Phil on the hill at Fenway next weekend? That’s going to be a big test …

  809. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 10:09 pm

    Burnett is basically in a contract year. wouldnt surprise me if its his best season.

  810. trisha April 3rd, 2008 at 10:09 pm

    Ed, good idea!

    :)

  811. MJR April 3rd, 2008 at 10:09 pm

    “How many 21 year olds go out there against a division rival and throw a game like that?”

    My sentiments exactly. 1 walk for 6 innings of work for someone his age, pitching in an atmoshphere like the Bronx. I hope this is an indication of what Phil can/will be in the future.

    GO YANKS!

  812. smilineyes835 April 3rd, 2008 at 10:10 pm

    Is the way to follow the thread just hitting the refresh button or can someone give me advice.

    thanks

  813. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 10:10 pm

    Shirley,

    dont be hasty. if it was the right decision, one game doesnt provide proof.

    i am gonna try to get into the Yanks @ Sox game April 13th… Hughes against Daisuke… should be fun.

  814. trisha April 3rd, 2008 at 10:10 pm

    Boston D, that’s what he meant. Not the top three but the best 1-2-3 combo.

  815. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 10:11 pm

    CB,

    LAw had to pick someone who had less than 10 wins last season so its not like he picked Phil out of the entire pool of pitchers.

  816. Brandon (supporting the new movement "Alex being Alex") April 3rd, 2008 at 10:12 pm

    “Peter Gammons and Keith Law both picked Phil Hughes as a sleeper pick for the Cy Young.

    They both also picked McGowan as a sleeper Cy Young candidate.”

    CB that is an extreme sleeper 8O

    Color me unconvinced that Toronto has the best 1-2-3 in the majors. 1-2 maybe.

  818. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 10:13 pm

    trisha,

    they have to be up there.

    throw in Marcum as the #4 – pretty impressive

  819. CB April 3rd, 2008 at 10:14 pm

    BD,

    True – but part of the reason whey I find that great is that Law has said over and over that he doesn’t and never has seen Hughes as having the potential to be a true #1. He sees Hughes ceiling as a #2.

    They he goes out and picks him for a cy young sleeper.

    There are a lot of good young pitchers in the AL who didn’t win 10 games last year.

  820. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 10:16 pm

    Sabathia, Carmona, Westbrook ?

    Peavy, Young, Maddux?

    Webb, Haren, Unit/Owings?

    Wang, Pettite, Hughes

    who else am I missing?

    I think the Jays are up there – when you add Marcum as the 4, its a strong argument that they are the best.

  821. PAT M. April 3rd, 2008 at 10:17 pm

    It’s a shame that he lost nearly three months last season….I still say he wins 15 games this year…..I believe we Yankee fans are watching the start of a very special career…Regardless of what Proctor Pete says….This kid is special…..

  822. longtime April 3rd, 2008 at 10:17 pm

    A J still has to get thru a year without going on the DL. rest of staff still unproven

  823. EY April 3rd, 2008 at 10:18 pm

    This and Tuesday’s games are the type of games we’d struggle mightily last year, when one-run-games or tie-games were our bane. Not anymore this year. Our bullpen is looking tremendous this year.

  824. Jax April 3rd, 2008 at 10:18 pm

    Red Sox have a good lineup, hopefully Hughes mixes in his pitches (change-up,slider) against that lineup more.

  825. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 10:18 pm

    CB,

    I saw that Law went to harvard.. does he have a Red Sox bias?

    was he one of the writers who said Buchholz was better than Joba?

    I thought it was a pretty good interview – def interesting that he’s already changed his mind on Hughes despite Hughes not really being able to showcase himself fully in 07.

  826. Manimal April 3rd, 2008 at 10:19 pm

    The Better question Pete is when have the yankees had 2 bunts in a game?

  827. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 10:20 pm

    Pat M,

    Hughes may only start 23-25 games so 15 might be tough. I don’t know if the Yanks will incorporate potental playoff innings into their limits (they should).

    Not sure if he does live blogging everyday, but he did it for this game
    http://emedia.thetimes-tribune.....fault.aspx

  831. Boston Dave April 3rd, 2008 at 10:23 pm

    Jax,

    Sox lineup seems to be off right now but they always wakeup for the Yanks. If Hughes has his control, he should do just fine. It will be interesting to see how he handles the intensity at Fenway (if he has any nerves or loses some command)… I am guessing he’ll be just fine, especially if he handles it like ALDS Game 3.

  832. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! Mussina is NOT DONE! anti-anti April 3rd, 2008 at 10:24 pm

    He does look green!! I think he might have just got all the beat writers sick. Pete was smart to stay away. Now they’ll all get sick, and he’ll get the scoop! :P

  833. Jax April 3rd, 2008 at 10:25 pm

    Keith Law has changed his opinion on Hughes so many times. One minute he’s a potential number 1 now he’s a potential 2?
    I pay little attention to him and Jim Callis.

  834. PAT M. April 3rd, 2008 at 10:25 pm

    Not picking up a W in a game like tonight is a rub of the green..However there’ll be many a 5 inning outing and taking a shower with a 9-2 lead….

  835. Suspect Mechanics April 3rd, 2008 at 10:34 pm

    The dynasty teams knew how to manufacture runs, and had balanced scoring blending home runs and small ball timely hitting.

    Starting around the time Giambi joined the team, the Yankee hitters seemed to depend more and more on an all-or-nothing home run hitting style. Which served them very well during the regular season, but left them stranded come the playoffs when they faced much better pitching and the home runs dried up.

    It’s early yet, but there are encouraging signs in these first three games that they are returning to the balanced hitting approach of the dynasty years. Now the question is whether they will have the mental discipline to keep that up – and with Girardi on the case I suspect they will – and whether the pitching will be there.

  836. Jon April 3rd, 2008 at 10:37 pm

    Damon’s “phew!” when he realized that Hughes has turned 21 was priceless.

  837. Frank Discussion April 3rd, 2008 at 10:42 pm

    Several things left a positive impression upon me tonight. Hughes looked sharp, even with the fluctuating strike zone.
    Curve ball was effective for the most part, and some nice late movement on his fastball. Bullpen looked really solid, nice to see Bruney throwing strikes, and the Joba/Mo combo delivered again. Most important (IMO) is the fact that even with a sputtering offense, they found a way to win. Some smart baserunning and timely bunts put a few runs on the board. Good to see everyone not swinging for the fences.

  838. Dee April 3rd, 2008 at 10:56 pm

    So excited to see the small balls, the hustle, the Billy Traber move tonight and leaving Wang on the mound to get the out before pulling him the other night…lots of good signs with this team. I miss Torre and am secretly rooting for the Dodgers (until october) but am super psyched about the new era.

    On another note I feel bad Moose didn’t get a win last night, would have been nice to shut the critics up. Moose was throwing strikes consistently and there are times tonight when Hughes was really struggling with his locations (and the moving zone didn’t help). Imagine if it was Moose with the strike-zone trouble last night if even for just a couple of innings people would have been calling for his head. Also when Matsui was fumbling with the LF catch tonight people were calling him old and rusty and screaming to trade him. But when Cano drops balls all the times it’s just b/c he’s not paying attention. To me, the results are the same. There definitely is ageism in baseball.

  839. AeroFANatic April 3rd, 2008 at 11:46 pm

    Whenever Joba in the 8th, and Mo in the 9th leads us to a win………….
    ……………it’s a MoJob!

    2nd MoJob this season. Waiting for so many more :)

  840. Brock April 4th, 2008 at 8:49 am

    We’re only three games in, but I must say I like Girardi’s managing style.
    He has been pretty aggressive at times, played some small ball, and I think it has been a nice mix.
    It is also good to see a guy up and moving around during the game (even when battling a cold).
    I liked Torre, but sometimes I thought he was going to fall asleep in the dugout as he sat there with Jeter’s bat.

  841. look at here now August 7th, 2014 at 4:39 pm

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
