Good times for Alfredo Aceves

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Dec 02, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

One of our readers in Mexico, Jorge, sent this along. Alfredo Aceves was married over the weekend. Given his meteoric rise to the majors this season, I’m sure it was a great celebration.

Alfredo’s parents, brother and other members of his family were in Anaheim when he pitched there and they seemed like nice people.

If the Yankees keep a long reliever on the staff, Aceves has a chance to make the Opening Day roster.

    Saw him often in Scranton and found him to be a heavy favorite in the Jim Leyritz look-alike contest

  2. jay destro December 2nd, 2008 at 2:39 pm

    man this issue of people magazine is full of yankees players

  3. Bronx Jeers December 2nd, 2008 at 2:42 pm

    Apparently he’s also in the running for having the hottest Yankee wife.

    I hope he makes the team. At this rate he could be their 3rd starter!

    Vamos El Gusano! (The Worm) Remember he wears 92 for Rodman.

    Good for Alfredo! I’m a bit embarrassed to see he isn’t rocking the A-Rod scarf, though. I thought it would catch on immediately.

  5. Rob NY -- 2009 The Road to Redemption December 2nd, 2008 at 2:46 pm

    That is a real good picture of Alfredo’s wife but let’s not forget Mrs. Posada here.

  6. JJ December 2nd, 2008 at 2:47 pm

    Man, she is gorgeous. Good for him!!!

  7. Deep to Left December 2nd, 2008 at 2:47 pm

    Wow. Looks like Alfredo did pretty good for himself. Heck, if HE ever needs a long reliever, I’d be happy to oblige!

  8. Bronx Jeers December 2nd, 2008 at 2:48 pm

    Check that. I mean # 91. Duh.

  9. Fredo Corleone December 2nd, 2008 at 2:50 pm

    Lovely young lady. Looks Alfredo outkicked his coverage on this one. Good for him.

    Picture is so much less disturbing than the one of Arod a few posts back.

  10. harper December 2nd, 2008 at 2:52 pm

    Hot wife, Go Aceves.

  11. Nick in SF December 2nd, 2008 at 2:52 pm

    Very well done, Alfredo. No hint of Kaballah brainwashing in his smile.

    Aceves 1
    Arod 0

  12. aron December 2nd, 2008 at 2:53 pm

    i have the same

  13. ZMAN7777 December 2nd, 2008 at 2:59 pm

    I agree with Bronx Cheers. Aceves could find himself in the ’09 rotation the way things are (not) going. I’ll take a cheap Aceves over Pettitte at $16 million.

  14. Artie A December 2nd, 2008 at 3:03 pm

    Aceves will literally be the ace in the hole for the yankees this year. He will likely make the long reliever slot and could be a real go to pitcher if injuries come along , which they will…he was simply terrific last year.

  15. saucY December 2nd, 2008 at 3:05 pm

    what is that in the background? a sailboat or a piñata? or a giant piñata of a sailboat?

  16. Patrick December 2nd, 2008 at 3:06 pm

    Wow, way to go Alfredo.

    A-rod, take notes.

  17. Nick in SF December 2nd, 2008 at 3:06 pm

    It’s a giant magical fruity wizard’s cap, DUH!

  18. robert December 2nd, 2008 at 3:08 pm

    it is supposed to be a christmas tree and behind is el cerro de la silla

    picture taken in monterrey , mexico

  19. 27 in 2009 December 2nd, 2008 at 3:09 pm

    BAM.

    I’ll trade Mrs. Aceves for my Bobby Abreu Yankees jersey. You in Mr. Aceves?

  20. NJ in Tampa December 2nd, 2008 at 3:18 pm

    He out-punted his coverage by about 300 yards. Good for him.

  21. the shining December 2nd, 2008 at 3:22 pm

    aceves for rotation! number 5.5!

  22. EDUB December 2nd, 2008 at 3:33 pm

    Does he live in Anaheim or what? I was wondering this because I’m sure Aceves is a somewhat popular name but I’m in the OC and I see this SUV a lot that has a massive sticker on the back that says “Aceves”. Always wondered if it could possibly be one of the family’s cars

  23. dave December 2nd, 2008 at 3:33 pm

    All this — and to think he’s still only 36 years old!

  24. pat December 2nd, 2008 at 3:43 pm

    “man this issue of people magazine is full of yankees players”

    :smile: LOL. The hot stove can’t heat up soon enough.

  25. LathamJoe December 2nd, 2008 at 3:45 pm

    “If the Yankees keep a long reliever on the staff, Aceves has a chance to make the Opening Day roster.”

    Given the state of the current Yankee starting pitching, Aceves has a better than average opportunity to be the No. 4 or No. 5 Starter for this Team!
    Dan Giese should get a look at long relief.

  26. Phil Parcells December 2nd, 2008 at 3:45 pm

    What an IDIOT.

    Why buy the cow, when you can rent the milk.

  27. Jorge (México) December 2nd, 2008 at 3:54 pm

    Exactly, Pat. While in this “cold” stove, we have to find some other issues to comment on.

    Like Robert said, in the background is a stylized Christmas tree, not a sailboat or a piñata, Saucy. LOL. Behind that “tree”, there is El Cerro de la Silla, named that way because, on the right side, it looks like a saddle.

    And about how gorgeous Arley Solís is (that’s Aceves’ wife name), guys, you should come down here from time to time. You’d be crazy, watching all these gorgeous latinas. You’re head would turn around like Linda Blair’s.

  28. Jorge (México) December 2nd, 2008 at 3:55 pm

    I meant “your head”, not “you’re head”. Sorry for that.

  29. dave December 2nd, 2008 at 3:58 pm

    Do you have his honeymoon address?

    He may need some Viagra — and Rogaine. I’ll make it a wedding gift from me.

  30. dave December 2nd, 2008 at 4:13 pm

    I’d come to Mexico like you suggested, but I’m afraid that a Zeta gang member might decapitate me while I’m visiting. Ooch — that would hurt!

  31. Josh December 2nd, 2008 at 4:28 pm

    He needs to watch his hands lol

  32. Artie A December 2nd, 2008 at 4:29 pm

    Aceves is 26 yeasr old to set the record straight… and what a lucky guy!

  33. dave December 2nd, 2008 at 4:33 pm

    Yeah, lucky to get that money from the Yankees after lying about his age.

  34. MP December 2nd, 2008 at 4:36 pm

    I have a weird feeling that Aceves is going to turn out so much better than anyone predicted. I just have a gut that he’s going to turn into a dominating pitcher when given a shot.

  35. Jorge (México) December 2nd, 2008 at 4:56 pm

    You poor little dave. What a pathetic entity. Have you consider visiting a psychiatrist? No. Surely not. No brain = no thought

  36. bodhisattva December 2nd, 2008 at 4:58 pm

    ^^^My sense of how Aceves will do is based on performance; the guy can pitch. He’s crafty, has command of five pitches, and throws them at different speeds so that his FB seems like it’s 95 instead of 91. People get hung up on velocity, when it’s separation and deception that really matters.

    He’s also a big man and a specimen, and works extremely hard. The first time I saw him pitch live was all the convicing I needed. Did I mention he’s glacial under pressure? Very important.

  37. dave December 2nd, 2008 at 5:00 pm

    Please Jorge! More wedding photos! Who cares how he pitches?? Could we have a history of Mexico too? Hmmm… Why does that Xmas tree look more like gay wizard’s hat? Is it a front for a meth lab or something?

  38. Chris December 2nd, 2008 at 5:01 pm

    I’d hit it.

  39. Jorge (México) December 2nd, 2008 at 5:03 pm

    And don’t even think about coming to México, you KKK member. An entity like you just have one place to go. Garbage dump. Even in there, you just contaminate the place.

  40. dave December 2nd, 2008 at 5:04 pm

    After I looking at her more closely — I think I did once — in Tijuana — a few years ago.

  41. dave December 2nd, 2008 at 5:05 pm

    Garbage dump? Isn’t that where Zeta puts the bodies of police officers and civilians? Great vacation spot.

  42. Jorge (México) December 2nd, 2008 at 5:06 pm

    Agree, bodhisattva:
    His repertory is great. And, like you said, he’s glacial under pressure.

    MP:
    I have the same feeling you have. I think we’ll enjoy a pretty good season from him.

  43. bodhisattva December 2nd, 2008 at 5:36 pm

    Jorge, don’t waste your breath on this type of person. You are above him and he deserves to be ignored.

  44. dave December 2nd, 2008 at 5:47 pm

    Please don’t ignore me bodhisattva! Please! I promise to be glacial under pressure. I promise to play Steely Dan every single day! Please!

  45. EY December 2nd, 2008 at 5:58 pm

    It would appear that Aceves knows how to find a woman his age…

  46. dave December 2nd, 2008 at 6:04 pm

    She’s 36? She looks much younger.

  47. Whitey Fraud December 2nd, 2008 at 7:14 pm

    Mazel tov!

  48. Jorge (México) December 2nd, 2008 at 8:30 pm

    You’re right, bodhisattva. I promise I will ignore “it”. In fact, I think “it” deserves no attention from no one over here.
    And thanks for your kind words.

  49. dave (USA) December 2nd, 2008 at 9:38 pm

    Drew, I am offended by your crude attempt at humor.

    In the name of Jorge Mexico, I denounce you!!

    Everyone knows that the best way to enter the US is to play baseball — then lie about your age so your given a good contract!

  50. RosterRooster December 2nd, 2008 at 10:02 pm

    daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaam

  51. MikeD December 2nd, 2008 at 11:53 pm

    Hot! I’m I don’t mean Alfredo.

  52. longtimefan December 3rd, 2008 at 1:07 am

    wow, she’s hot. any more pictures of her?

  53. Brandon (TEIX IS NOT WORTH IT, GET CC !)..."Don't trade Robi !" December 3rd, 2008 at 2:38 am

    “He needs to watch his hands lol”

    That’s his wife, she’s gonna let him put it where ever he wants.

  54. Tucson Ken December 3rd, 2008 at 9:46 am

    I don’t know why people are discounting Alfredo as being a good starter option. Good command of lots of pitches with movement, changes speeds, & seems cool under pressure. In my mind he knows how to pitch & deserves a real shot as a starter.
    Much as I love Andy, his finish to last season was painful to watch. Not sure if it was that he was pitching hurt & is something he can recover from, or if it was just the end of the line. In any case, paying him more than $12Mil would not be a worthwhile risk IMO.

  55. Fred December 3rd, 2008 at 11:07 am

    How old is Aceves really? He could be 42

  56. dave (USA) December 3rd, 2008 at 12:01 pm

    Fred, how dare you! You must be a racist if you question the age of Aceves! He’s the Pride of Jorge Mexico!

    FYI, Jorge Mexico’s uncle’s friend’s neighbor witnessed his birth in a barn on a farm exactly 26 years ago.

    So there’s your proof! If you wipe off the manure on the birth certificate, you’ll see that it’s unquestionably authentic!

  57. marcie October 22nd, 2009 at 2:19 pm

    you guys are ignorant..he is only 26..I know he’s my cousins in-law

  58. Ace91Fan March 12th, 2010 at 5:50 pm

    Alfredo is a great pitcher. I am so proud to see a Mexican player like him make it big in MLB. My family and I are big Yankee fans and now are Alfredo’s #1 fans in Orange County. He is so down to earth. He takes the time to talk to his fans and sign. Never forgets where he came from!

    Gracias a la familia Aceves Martinez!!!
