The CF question

Posted by: Sam Borden - Posted in Misc on Feb 05, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

One of the things I mentioned in my first post this week was that I didn’t think Brett Gardner or Melky Cabrera would end up playing the most important games in CF for the Yankees this season. At this point, I just have trouble believing there won’t be someone more recognizable out there at some point.

Now, Andruw Jones would certainly qualify as more recognizable (though, then again, with his weight gain, maybe not) but despite being one of the game’s best players not that many years ago, it seems clear that Jones isn’t much of an upgrade anymore.

According to SI’s Jon Heyman, the Yankees did offer Jones a minor-league deal to come in and compete with Gardner/Cabrera, but agent Scott Boras turned it down. We’ll see if that rejection stands as spring training gets closer.

For me, Jones looks like a bit of a lost cause. The guy just completely fell off the shelf, looks out of shape and couldn’t get it together for a manager who – say what you want about Joe Torre’s authorship – usually gets veterans to play close to their peak. Makes you think Jones’ peak has fallen for good.

A minor league deal is harmless if Jones is willing to take it, but I wouldn’t hold out much hope for him being any kind of find.

    Cash supposedly compared gardner’s potential next year to a guy like juan pierre.
    Pierre’s line last year: 283 avg 327 obp 40 for 52 stolen bases in 375 at bats
    I can definitely see that comparison – if gardner gives us that kind of production next year, i think we will all be pleasantly suprised. That is tremendous production out of the ninth spot and even if posada doesn’t stay healthy all season, that is pretty decent stuff out of the eighth spot. I hope gardner comes around because if he does, those are the kinds of numbers he will put up.

  2. joeman February 5th, 2009 at 6:21 pm

    the Yankees got A Jones attention now go back and offer him a 1 year contract with incentives,a in shape(if) A Jones would be a huge plus,can play the position and hit at still a young age

  3. CraftyLefty February 5th, 2009 at 6:21 pm

    I’m rooting for Gardner; but is there any chance they bring in Jim Edmonds to compete for the spot?

  4. wood is good February 5th, 2009 at 6:23 pm

    Some days, I consider our current centerfield situation, and say to myself, “Dang, if we had a reliable veteran there, someone like Cameron, we’d be in perfect shape!”

    Then I look at our lineup again and realize I’m worried about nothing. I thank Cash Money for that — obtaining Tex completely changes the landscape.

    Compare our current lineup to the best of the rest, and no team comes close. (Yeah, I’m biased…. ;D )

  5. wood is good February 5th, 2009 at 6:24 pm

    And what I mean is — let Gardner and Melky duke it out!!

  6. joeman February 5th, 2009 at 6:25 pm

    look at AJ #’sup until last year,you just don’t lose it that quick…he’s worth the risk

  7. dave February 5th, 2009 at 6:27 pm

    Torre gets vets to play at their peak? What happened with guys like RJ, Brown, etc.? He just was not in the mood to get those guys to play to their peak?

    Jones is 31 – I have a tough time believing that the guy is done and Im sure boras and Andruw himself dont really believe it either. Boras accepting a minor league deal for Jones would be somewhat surprising like admitting that he is done. That has to be their absolute last resort but Jones cannot sit out for a season and expect things to get any better for him. Eventually, he is going to have to prove he is worth a major league roster spot. I think there is absolutely no harm in the yanks signing jones to a minor league deal and melky/gardner could certainly use the competition. In the end though, the chances that Jones takes a minor league deal and then, goes out and performs in ST is slim.

  8. Tom February 5th, 2009 at 6:28 pm

    Let Melky and Brett battle it out. If neither one can get the job done revisit the Cameron deal.

  9. Joe from Long Island February 5th, 2009 at 6:29 pm

    I think that sometimes people get confused. They think real life is just like a video game, and that they can make wild gambles in the hope that a miracle occurs and they can then seem like a genius, without any consequences for guessing wrong. It’s a bit similar, I think, to guys at the tables in Vegas, Atlantic City, or Foxwood, who are hoping for one more throw of the dice to make that big win.

    That’s what this Andruw Jones talk reminds me of, because there is nothing that he has actually done in the past couple of years to make a rational person think that he can become the player he was ten years ago.

    I remember reading something on Yahoo a couple of years ago, maybe by Jeff Passan, where the author made the case that Jones was going downhill then. That guy really called it.

  10. Uncle Ellsworth February 5th, 2009 at 6:29 pm

    Bat 21 Great book and Movie.

    Tom: Gone with the Wind??? my gut says it is not a war movie, Like many on the IMDB list

  11. Doreen February 5th, 2009 at 6:32 pm

    Tom -

    I was going to ask about Gone With the Wind, too! I figure it’s like Cold Mountain – a romance with the Civil War as a backdrop. Not really a war movie. In fact, I think there is very little actual fighting in Gone With the Wind. They show wounded soldiers and Atlanta burning, but noneof the actual fighting. And they do an awful lot of talking about the War.

    Cold Mountain at least had a very, very realistic Civil War battle scene.

  12. Tom February 5th, 2009 at 6:32 pm

    I thought so, too, Uncle Ellsworth. I saw it on that list, and thoght I’d ask.

  13. dave February 5th, 2009 at 6:32 pm

    Yea, our lineup is great right now but take one or two players out and replace them with the bench and it is a little difficult to just live with mediocrity in center. Im not saying matsui/posada getting injured is a given or that gardner cannot hack it in the majors for a season but the more competition the better. Putting a slumping gardner eighth and jose molina ninth in the batting order will really make yankee fans wonder why we didnt sign another CF to compete.

  14. Tom February 5th, 2009 at 6:34 pm

    Doreen- GWTW is like Casablanca, more of a love story.

  15. Doreen February 5th, 2009 at 6:34 pm

    Uncle Ellsworth –

    Is a movie like “Sophie’s Choice” on the IMDB list? Because that would be a movie that involves a war or the story takes place during a war but isn’t really about a war. Are the movies on that list like that? Stretching the genre, so to speak?

  16. Doreen February 5th, 2009 at 6:34 pm

    Tom -

    Yeah.

    The third part of the John Wayne Triolgy was his best and it, too was based on a true story….”The Horse Soldiers”. Great movie.

    Doreen,

    Cold Mtn is Kind of like From Here to Eternity not sure where I’d put them.

  21. Tom February 5th, 2009 at 6:39 pm

    They’re Chick flicks disguised as war films

  22. joeman February 5th, 2009 at 6:39 pm

    not counting last year Jones average 28 hrs & 110 rbi’s the last four years…no need to go back ten years

  23. dave February 5th, 2009 at 6:39 pm

    Joe,

    No one thinks he is going to be the player he was 10 years ago but how about the player he was in 2006? He is only 31 years old – the rapid unraveling of his career was surprising and he is certainly still young enough to turn around this epic collapse. Either way, what is the harm of giving him a minor league deal? Little money, no roster spot taken up and it could create a little more fire under melky and gardners butts. There is really little reason why the yanks should not do this deal if they could.

  24. GreenBeret7 February 5th, 2009 at 6:39 pm

    Yeah, Randy…probably my favorite was “To Hell And Back”.

  25. GreenBeret7 February 5th, 2009 at 6:41 pm

    Sounds a lot like McCain
    ——————————————————————————————
    Yeah….pretty close to the McCain story. I’m trying to download that movie on my computer and if I can, maybe I can get it to you over the internet. I need to find a program at allows converstion to an AVI format.

  26. Rebecca-Optimist Prime...Staying to Write the Story February 5th, 2009 at 6:42 pm

    My mother forced me to watch GWTW once when I had utterly no interest in it.

    I decided I didn’t like that movie for that sole reason.

  27. Uncle Ellsworth February 5th, 2009 at 6:45 pm

    GB that goes with Ft Apache and She wore a Yellow Ribbon Right? I remember they had to dig a slug from his leg. Good one.
    I like Searchers, Liberty Valence and Stagecoach as Westerns to start. He and Ford made many solid ones – even the Duke’s later stuff was good

    Doreen I agree sophie’s Choice not a war movie nor is Casablanca – a personal Fave
    crossing genres

  28. Doreen February 5th, 2009 at 6:47 pm

    tom -

    Hey! That’s not fair! :lol:

    But, I guess it’s the art of compromise – a little war, a little romance – everyone’s happy.

    And about George King and Joba — last week he talked about Joba should be in the pen setting up for Mariano and “that’s where he should stay.” Who the heck wants a career as a set-up guy?????!!!!! He didn’t even add, and take the closer’s job when Mo is done. He’s one of those guys who will never change his mind. Ever.

  29. Uncle Ellsworth February 5th, 2009 at 6:48 pm

    Rebecca give it another try. It really is a good one – but long and
    I think there is a sword fight in it.

    GB7 Thanks for tryin.

  30. Doreen February 5th, 2009 at 6:49 pm

    Rebecca -

    Movies like GWTW and Wizard of Oz, the more I watched them, the more I found to not like about them. Wizard of Oz is a big favorite of my youngest daughter, but she doesn’t get the nuances that began to annoy me. My sister put it this way – in the end, the only person you could trust was the Wicked Witch! (Which I believe ends up being the premise of the Broadway musical, Wicked.)

  31. Tom February 5th, 2009 at 6:50 pm

    You’re right, Doreen. Maybe I was too harsh. Casablanca is a great film and GWTW may be too (never saw the whole thing).

    But, can we agree that Pearl Harbor (the Ben Afleck one) was a chick flick at heart, plus it’s really awful.

  32. Mark February 5th, 2009 at 6:50 pm

    Bring in Jay Payton on an incentive-laden MiL deal and have Melky and Gardner to compete to platoon with him. He still hits lefties fairly respectably and he’ll likely asked to be released if he isn’t in the majors by May 1st. Nothing to lose, really.

  33. Doreen February 5th, 2009 at 6:51 pm

    Uncle Ellsworth -

    GWTW is a great movie, BUT the more I watched it, the more I found I didn’t like about it. Like Melanie Wilkes. She started to grate on my nerves. But not as much as Ashley Wilkes.

    And then there’s Scarlett. Sigh. I wouldn’t even begin to talk about all the problems I started having with her.

    Again Rhett, the “cad,” was the only honorable character in the movie.

  34. Ed - spring training can't start soon enough February 5th, 2009 at 6:51 pm

    Tom

    Agreed. Pearl Harbor was indeed a chick flick. not much action. ugh!

  35. randy l. February 5th, 2009 at 6:51 pm

    saw the The Beautiful Country the other night on netflix.
    that was an interesting after the vietnam war movie.

  36. pat February 5th, 2009 at 6:53 pm

    Not a war movie kind of gal so I’ve stayed out but like the Joba debate some things don’t die a natural death. Would Braveheart qualify?

  37. Tom February 5th, 2009 at 6:54 pm

    I think so, Pat.

  38. Bronx Jeers February 5th, 2009 at 6:55 pm

    Star Wars could be considered a war movie no? A war in space.

    Casablanca does fall into several genres but is most readily identified with film noir.

    I wish they were still talking about his defensive abilities.

  41. Doreen February 5th, 2009 at 6:57 pm

    (And start introducing movies that just barely fit the description!)

    ————————————————————

    There were a couple of pretty good stories on a couple of the people in the movie. One of the Tarleton twins was George Reeves, future Mr. Universe and TV Superman, and Leslie Howard was killed during WWII when his plane was tracked down by German fighters and shot down. He was on a spy mission for MI5 and Winston Churchhill.

  44. Doreen February 5th, 2009 at 7:01 pm

    I knew about George Reeves, but not Leslie Howard. Wow.

  45. Uncle Ellsworth February 5th, 2009 at 7:04 pm

    Pearl Harbor:
    Action scenes were good…..the love story should have been bombed

    Doreen interesting take.
    I too found many of the characters in GWTW annoying.
    I;m going to watch Wizard of Oz again with that in mind.

  48. GreenBeret7 February 5th, 2009 at 7:07 pm

    Doreen, I mentioned a great book about an amazing guy, Moe Berg. “The Catcher Was A Spy”, is a great read. It would make a sensational movie. Berg was an old time major league catcher turned spy during WWII. He worked for WIld Bill Donavon, who started the OSS (pre-cursor to the CIA) and was recruited by Michael Burke….the same Michael Burke that was president of Ringling Brothers, Barnum And Bailey Circus and then president of the CBS run Yankees.

  49. Rebecca-Optimist Prime...Staying to Write the Story February 5th, 2009 at 7:08 pm

    Braveheart is great, although I don’t like Mel Gibson.

    Damn you guys still on the war movie subject? It was a question i asked gb last night and i guess its still making its rounds. I never thought there was that many to chose from. See GB. If you would have just agreed with me that Saving Private Ryan was the best one ever it wouldnt have kept going this long. You had to go with the duke.

    And Legends of the Fall can be put in with the cold mountain etc. chick flicks. Not a war movie if its more love than war.

  52. Doreen February 5th, 2009 at 7:10 pm

    saucy -

    The way my sister sees it, she gets creeped out by humanoid creatures (lion, tin man and scarecrow). She also sees something sinister in their affection for Dorothy, but I don’t. But, to answer your question, even back in Kansas, Aunt Em and Uncle Henry totally let Dorothy down.

  53. Doreen February 5th, 2009 at 7:11 pm

    GB7 -

    Sounds like an interesting book. Catchy title, too.

  54. saucY February 5th, 2009 at 7:11 pm

    i’m trying to think of the name of this movie. a comedy and more of a wartime movie than actual war movie, made in the late 80′s and set in England, i think.

    i remember so many scenes, but can’t think of the name of the movie for the life of me (if i ever knew it). several scenes i remember include cricket, using dynamite to kill all of the fish, hitting a bullet in a vice with a hammer, finding a bunch of jam on the shore, the older sister drawing lines on the back of her legs to look like stockings…

    can anyone help me out?

  55. Tommy February 5th, 2009 at 7:11 pm

    I’m fine staring the season with Melky and Gardner battling it out. I expect Gardner to be a nice surprise this year.

  60. S.o.S. February 5th, 2009 at 7:14 pm

    Braveheart was IMO the best movie ever. I always think that the next time i see it he wont fall for the trap that was set.

    Rebecca,
    I liked 300 accept for the ending. If you are surounded by arrows pointed at you and you know theres no chance to survive. Wouldnt you rush the opposition and take some down with you? Who knows there might be some friendly fire. Also, I guess the leader of 300 in the true story dies right of the bat and doesnt make it to that scene. But it wouldnt have made a good movie without him so ill give that a pass.

    Bugs Bunny is a cartoon. Mr. Magoo. Dudley Dooright. Mighty Mouse. Rocky and Bullwinkle. The Jetsons. The Flintstones. The Beatles Cartoon. Yogi Bear. Underdog.

    If we can get lock down defense and hit around .275 I’d be fine with that.Throw in 30 bags and a .370 obp…Paul Blair made a career of doing so..Man he was great defensive CF ….

  77. saucY February 5th, 2009 at 7:27 pm

    hey, if the simpsons were an ‘animated series’ (best tv show ever,imo), so were the jetson and flintstones…

  78. Okay February 5th, 2009 at 7:29 pm

    To get creative, move Jeter to center, have A-Rod move back to short and Swisher over to 3rd.

    1. LF Damon
    2. CF Jeter
    3. 1B Teix
    4. SS A-Rod
    5. C Posada
    6. DH Matsui
    7. RF Nady
    8. 3B Swisher
    9. 2B Cano

  79. GreenBeret7 February 5th, 2009 at 7:31 pm

    Three categories.

    1. Adult cartoon – “Fritz The Cat” and “The Nine Lives Of Fritz The Cat”.

    2. TV cartoon made for adults – “The Adventures Of Rocky And Bullwinkle”.

    3. Foghorn Leghorn –

    Bugs Bunny – I have a problem with kids being exposed to rabitts dressed up as women and kissing men. To each his own, but, not in front of kids. It’s no wonder kids don’t know who or what they are, nowadays.

  80. saucY February 5th, 2009 at 7:33 pm

    okay, Nady has actually played 3B

    not that i’m recommending that…

  81. Doreen February 5th, 2009 at 7:35 pm

    Saucy -

    You are right. I added that the Simpsons was in a class by itself AFTER I typed the Flintstones and the Jetsons. :)

    SOS -

    Oops! :oops:

    GB7 -

    Bugs Bunny was ahead of his time. Foghorn Leghorn was a grouchy old man-type character. I say, I say…
    I would love to see Rocky and Bullwinkle now. Very cold war, though at the time I just loved the Russian accents and the name Natasha.

    Can’t comment on the adult cartoons. I was underage when they came out.

  82. saucY February 5th, 2009 at 7:37 pm

    i had an older sister who controlled the channels more than me, so i never really had much opportunity to get into the he mans and gi joe type cartoons.

    the smurfs were good. then the older classics like woody woodpecker, older tom n jerry, looney tunes, heckyl and jeckyl (but i only think i remember them when i was really young, too violent maybe?)

    non-cartoon kid shows: magic garden, wonderama, the great space coaster, electic company…

  83. Tom February 5th, 2009 at 7:37 pm

    You Army men and your smut….

  84. Ninja Burglar February 5th, 2009 at 7:38 pm

    I still think we will see Damon start most games in CF with Nady in RF and Swisher in LF, with a defensive substitution happening at some point that puts Damon in left and Melky or Gardner coming in.

    There also could be a situation where Gardner starts the season in AAA and we carry a 3rd catcher if Jorge isn’t ready right away. I believe management would move a position player down and not a pitcher in that situation, as pitchers aren’t 100% conditioned yet and we’ll need all the bullpen arms.

    This is all based on roster construction, not favoring one player over another. Melky is out of options, Gardner is not, so Gardner is the one that can move back and forth with Melky being the late defensive sub.

    Add Family Guy to the adult cartoon list. I allow my kids to watch some R movies. But I cant get myself to allow them to watch Family Guy. Go figure.

    Okay,
    Im not sure if you were joking about the changes. Arod is too big to play short and he said it himself. He is confortable where hes at. Didnt know Swisher ever played third. Jeter aint moving positions for till at least when his contract is up. Why would you change 3 peoples positions to fill one? Cant we just have a Broscious like center fielder? We have enough hitting to win it all. Give me a .260 15 hr and 60 ribis with a cannon arm and good solid defense and im good.

    Space ghost coast to coast, Sealab 2021 and Futurama are all great “Adult” cartoons

    Speed racer was a good afternoon cartoon. But I tended to watch Dark Shadows.

  91. pat February 5th, 2009 at 7:42 pm

    Didn’t we play cartoons before?

    Top Cat, Wacky Races, Hong Kong Phooey in addition to the ones named already. Also loved the Sid and Marty Kroft Shows on Saturday am like HR Puff N Stuff, but that was more acid trip than cartoon. Being under 10 I just didn’t know it at the time.

  114. S.o.S. February 5th, 2009 at 8:01 pm

    Ed,
    I found them on e-bay. Wasnt that expensive. The reason i bought them was because my kids were watching some of these new cartoons. I told my older one that we had better ones in the 80′s and so I had to prove it to him. Long story short, he liked both Voltron and Thundercats but went back to watching his updated stuff. Actually the new ones that are pretty good are Spongebob,Star Wars and X-men. A new batman is coming out,might take a look at that.

    Star Wars was decent, X-Men was alright but the late 90s verison was better. Which Batman are you talking about? I know there’s a new one that airing right now, it is called “The Batman”.

  118. John in Ohio February 5th, 2009 at 8:04 pm

    Torre is on MLBTV with Bob Costas

  119. Ninja Burglar February 5th, 2009 at 8:04 pm

    It’s also reasonable to think that Damon will have less balls to chase down in center for 6 innings a game with 3/5 of the starting rotation averaging about 1 strikeout per inning, thus minimizing his defensive liability for that portion of the game.

  120. Buddy Biancalana February 5th, 2009 at 8:09 pm

    What’s up with all of the makeup on Torre? It goes up all the way up to his hairline.

  121. S.o.S. February 5th, 2009 at 8:10 pm

    Ed,
    I agree. The old X-men in the 90′s were good. I will hold judgement of which is better till I watch more of the new one. The new one is basically going with what was in the movies. What i dont get is why does Wolverine still wear his blue and yellow if he wore all black in the movies? Inconsistant with that.

    Im not sure if its called the batman. Its suppose to be an updated one taking some of the stuff from new batman movies. I might be late on it and its probaly already playing for all i know.

  122. Joe from Long Island February 5th, 2009 at 8:10 pm

    Torre has some discrepancies. He says he was “relieved” to no longer be managing the Yankees. Yet, it seemed that if he got the right deal, he would have stayed on.

    Sounds like some damage control. Costas is a good interviewer.

  123. Bronx Jeers February 5th, 2009 at 8:11 pm

    Costas is doing a good job with this interview. He’s certainly being thorough with the negative criticism.

    Randy:
    Can you hear me now???
    Sorry I couldnt join the Cashman on vacation conversation earlier but just wanted to confirm for everyone that if Brian Cashman uses a Verizon cell phone he would have been able to hold a conversation while he spent two days skiing.
    He was in touch enough for Boras to turn him down about A Jones. No one works 24/7. I think we have to give Cashman a bit of a break after the offseason he put together.
    If they can get A Jones for nothing why not. However, a major leage deal is difficult because of 40 man roster issues.

    Anyone remember The Magic Garden? LOL I loved that show when I was a kid…..the magic box, the magic box!

    I LOVED the Electric Company, especially the Spiderman segments. I liked it better than Sesame Street, although I adored Cookie Monster.

    Smurfs rocked, but IMO, there was nothing greater than watching the Superfriends on Saturday morning. I am probably the only one in the world who liked the Wonder Twins – but now, I see how dorky they really were, lol. The Legion of Doom, however, is still ultra-cool.

    I never loved Bugs Bunny the character; I much preferred Daffy Duck. The best, however, was the Tazmanian Devil. I got such a kick out of him.

    I love Scooby Doo – my favorite character is Velma because I always like smart characters (like the Professor on Gilligan’s Island or Dorothy on the Golden Girls, lol). Scrappy Doo, however……….just FAIL.

  127. S.o.S. February 5th, 2009 at 8:25 pm

  130. Betsy February 5th, 2009 at 8:29 pm

    One more – anyone watch the Muppet Babies? Barbara Billingsley played the “mother”, though you never saw her face. They invented Skeeter as the twin of Scooter, but my favorite was Animal…….as he was in the first two Muppet Movies.

    On to baseball:

    I read the Davidoff blog – it was well done, but I think he’s too harsh on Cash (not surprising, though, considering his other blogs this off-season). At the time of the trade, getting Jeff Weaver (let’s use this as an example) was a good move. The fact that it didn’t work out doesn’t mean it was poor decision making by Cash. I can’t even read any more about how genius the Sox are – Davidoff is smitten with them, as if they have never made mistakes. Wow, he gives Cash credit for bringing some semblance of order to a chaotic organization…….and that’s it.

    Andruw Jones – what a dope. If he accepted the offer and played well, he’d have a GREAT chance at the CF job (as Melky and Brett are hardly fixtures). Let’s see if he gets the offer he’s waiting for – he hasn’t gotten it thus far.

  131. S.o.S. February 5th, 2009 at 8:29 pm

    Betsy,
    There was a new saturday morning show that came out a few months ago with some super heroes in it that had 2 supermans. They both looked young. One with a cape and short hair and the other with no cape and longer hair(cool looking). It might be something youd enjoy. I wish i could remember the name, it comes on ktla channel five in so.cal.
    One other one thats good is Teen Titans. It has robin in it.

    The only film dealing with precision daylight bombing, and told from the commanding officers point of view is Command Decision. There are virtually no battles scenes, but it is most certainly a war film, and one that celebrates our side. The principal characters are somewhat fictionalized, but they are based on Jimmy Doolittle, Curtis LeMay, and others.

    In some ways, it is a revelation.

    i’ve got it on my bookshelf. i gave it to my father who was all over in the navy in ww2 a few years ago when he was down for the summer and in between yankee games he read the whole thing. i can’t remember him reading another book ever.

    we got talking about his experiences in the war and he told me about the sinking of a ship called the rhohna that was in the convoy off north africa he was in. i looked it up and it still constitutes the largest loss of U.S. troops at sea.

    that would be a good topic for a war movie because it was kept classified until 1967.

  141. Nick in SF February 5th, 2009 at 8:40 pm

    Maybe Jeter wasn’t being honest. Maybe he has the baseball package but he didn’t want Arod staying up late watching TV for a couple more hours when Jeter just wanted to go to sleep. Maybe he didn’t trust Arod with the remote and all those pay-per-view channels. Maybe he just wanted to mess with Arod’s head. Lots of possibilities.

  142. Bronx Jeers February 5th, 2009 at 8:42 pm

    Based on his infiltration within the Maxim 100, Jeter must be in possession of some sort of package.

    There was another movie called “Strategic Air Command” with Jimmy Stewart that had Frank Lovejoy playing the LeMay part.

    “Bombs Away” LeMay was a great commander, but, absolutely ruthless. He defended the fire bombing of Germany and Japan until the day he died. LeMay was a brilliant stratigist, but, near the end of his career, he became a very dangerous man. The US would have nuked Cuba and the USSR had it been up to LeMay, and his recommendations almost led to that during the ’62 Cuban Missle Crisis.

    S.O.S, I’m not much into modern stuff. I love the cartoons from the 70′s and 80′s because I have fond childhood memories of them, but also because they are somewhat cheesy. My favorite superhero show was the tv show, Batman. It’s very annoying that it’s not on DVD yet….Adam West was the best,lol.

  150. Joe from Long Island February 5th, 2009 at 8:56 pm

    Interesting comment by Verducci. He points out how, with presumed less use of PEDs by ballplayers, the WS was played by two teams which relied on a more “athletic” style of baseball, with baserunning and defense as more of a priority.

    If you watch Ken Burns’ series, that’s how baseball was played generations ago.

    I think this has factored into GMs being reluctant to sign guys like Dunn, Abreu, Anderson, etc. Older and less athletic guys will be seen as greater risk.

  151. BD February 5th, 2009 at 8:56 pm

    Edmonds’ name came up here over the weekend (?). I think he would be a great pickup, but others here seem to think he’s completely spent as both a hitter and a fielder.

  154. Doreen February 5th, 2009 at 9:03 pm

    Betsy -

    I used to love watching Batman! “Same bat time, same bat channel.” I loved the cliffhangers. I loved the villains, and I agree – Adam West was so cool.

    I also watched another campy show – The Monkees.

    Those two were “must-see t.v.” for me.

    The very, very best growing up, though, were the few occasions when we got to stay up to watch Johnny Carson – either because we had company or because we were visiting somewhere and it turned into a late night. It made me feel grown up at the time. It was still in New York back then.

    Does anyone remember a show with Kaye Ballard and Eve Arden called “The Mothers In Law?” I thought that was a fun show. But I don’t think they’ve ever re-run it so I wonder if they even have it on tape anywhere. I’d buy that DVD. I have the DVD collection of “That Girl.”

    Yeah, that would be a great movie, as would be an honest telling of The USS Indianpolis. I’ve read a book and some articles, and the complete neglegence of the Navy Department and Pacific Area Commander was criminal.

    The “Catcher Was A Spy” was outstanding. I learned so much from reading about him, from his photos being used for landmarks for the Doolittle Raid to him trying to see how close Germany was to developing the atomic bomb. It took guts for a Jew to live in Germany and the occupied countries then.

    Jeter didn’t have the baseball package?? Wow. Fallen idol. I’ll never look at him the same way again.

    LOL… poor Arod.
    The book left out the best part of the story.

    Because Jeet didn’t have the baseball package, Alex casually flipped through the channels. He stopped on VH-1 and was mesmerized.

    Yes, they were showing the Madonna biography. Alex was glued to the set. Derek had to get him a bib.

    And as Paul Harvey would say… now you know the rest of the story. :-)

  177. GreenBeret7 February 5th, 2009 at 9:21 pm

    I’ll take “Petticoat Junction”, “Beverly Hillbillies” and “Green Acres”.

    Speaking of “Green Acres”, there is a couple of singer/comedians named Pinkard And Bowden that do an impression of Jimi Henrix doing his version of “Green Acres”. Great stuff.

  178. Doreen February 5th, 2009 at 9:22 pm

    YankeeRay -

    A lot of those shows were goofy and unsophisticated, but they were fun and mostly you could sit with your family and enjoy them together. I watched all the shows you named. I still love the Dick Van Dyke show and wish Nickolodeon would start airing it again.

    Most of the old B&W shows, I saw those in syndication. Leave it to Beaver, Donna Reed, Father Knows Best.

    Our family watched My Three Sons. That was an interesting show. Virtually no women for years, and then wham! Robbie and Dad both get married.

    Andruw Jones is a five time all-star, a 10 time gold glove winner, and has 371 career home runs. He will be 32 in April. Take a flier maybe? If any team gives him a guaranteed spot, it’s their risk. But clearly this guy is at least worth a look if it would come cheap. Melky and Gardner, while young do not have anything close to Jones track record…

  202. randy l. February 5th, 2009 at 9:50 pm

    doreen-
    i’m reading about cashman insisting to torre how mientkiewicz/phelps platoon was going to be better than having benie on the bench which is what torre fought for.

    torre said basically that it pissed him off and he would never forget how cashman was going to go by his numbers instead of torre’s opinion.

    i know with me personally when i look back , that’s when cashman lost me for good. on the blogs, i remember all these 20 something stat heads saying the same crap cashman was. it is very nice seeing many of these people disappear from sight after supporting cashman on the bernie/mienkiewicz/phelps fiasco and then the hughes/kennedy fiasco.

    eyechart and phelps hit .200 off the bench. phelps was waived after 36 games.

    just from this,i can see why cashman doesn’t like this book.and why his supporters don’t.

  203. Bob(The Original) February 5th, 2009 at 9:50 pm

    Hmmm, nobody seems to be clamoring for Ben Sheets anymore.

    Once again I guess Cashman knows what he’s doing.

  204. Bob(The Original) February 5th, 2009 at 9:53 pm

    Randy, I honestly think that if Cashman knew that Torre would in fact only use Bernie as a pinch hitter with an occasional start to spell someone, he would have been much more open to bringing him back.

    However, he knows Joe. If Bernie were on the team, he would have played him way more than he should have. The reality was that Bernie just didn’t have it anymore except fora little bit from the right side.

    “Andruw Jones is a five time all-star, a 10 time gold glove winner, and has 371 career home runs.”

    He is also a player who had a .222 average in 2007 and a very dismal .158 in 2008. That all star player has long departed.

    I’ve said this before but Jones makes Varitek look like a top of the line slugger!

  209. Doreen February 5th, 2009 at 9:58 pm

    Randy l -

    the book also said that everyone was agreed that Bernie was done, including Torre. But Torre changed his mind.

    Hey, Phelps was a bust. Mientkiewicz wasn’t horrible, because at least he made up for his offense with some good defense. And then he got hurt.

    I wish Bernie had accepted the minor league offer, understand from a matter of pride why he might not.

    If Giambi could play first base, there’s no issue here; Bernie comes back because they could afford the roster spot.

    But the thing of it is, Torre held a grudge. That’s part of what I took from that.

    And, randy, no one else made Bernie an offer to play somewhere else.

  210. Betsy February 5th, 2009 at 10:02 pm

    I loved the Bat Signal, Doreen! LOL Everyone was so serious on that show and that’s what sold it…….I used to think Robin was so cute, too. My favorite villains were the Joker and Frank Gorshin’s Riddler. I also thought Julie Newmar as the absolute perfect Catwoman – wow, she was gorgeous.

    S.O.S…..I only grew up with them on repeats, so I didn’t have to wait a whole week to find out if Robin would get eaten by those alligators or if Batman would climb out of vat of hot acid in time. The episodes were usually aired back to back…lucky me! The Batman movie, made in 1966, was really cool as well. Lee Meriweather was a pretty good Catwoman and the exploding shark at the beginning was classic. I loved the corny jokes as well…

    Ed, those Pows/Aarghs/Bams were the best…….They probably should have quit before Batgirl, though.

    I only watch old tv shows – Brady Bunch, Gilligan’s Island, Mr. Ed, the Patty Duke show (underrated classic, IMO), Bob Newhart show, Love Boat, Fantasy Island, I Love Lucy……

    One show I remember was a show called Lime Street, with Robert Wagner. It starred a 13 year old named Samantha Smith. She was the girl who, at age 9 or 10, wrote a letter to Gorbachev and was subsequently invited to the Soviet Union. At 13, she was very pretty and talented……unfortunately, she was killed in a plane crash not long into Lime Street’s run. It was a real shame……

    Anyone remember Out of this World? It was about a girl whose father is an alien (voice by Burt Reynolds) and she communicates with him via a cube. She could stop time by putting her fingers together, lol.

  212. Betsy February 5th, 2009 at 10:06 pm

    How could I forget the Dick Van Dyke show? I love that man – he is so incredibly talented. I never watched the Mary Tyler Moore show on reruns except for the Chuckles the Clown episode………maybe the funniest show ever. What about Taxi? Reverend Jim was a classic – “what……….is…….a yellow……light” LOL

  213. Tom February 5th, 2009 at 10:07 pm

    Here is what I don’t understand about Bernie. I know he wanted a major league deal, but was only offered a minor league one; however, does anybody really think Torre would have cut him?

  214. Betsy February 5th, 2009 at 10:11 pm

    Lots of Dodgers starred on some classic shows:

    Leo Durocher on the Munsters (another great show – not fond of the Addams Family) and Mr. Ed (seriously – a horse galloping around the diamond ? Classic)..

    Wes Parker and Don Drysdale on the Brady Bunch

    Sandy Koufax, Leo, Johnny Roseboro – Mr. Ed.

  215. Doreen February 5th, 2009 at 10:11 pm

    The Patty Duke show was a fun show.

    When Nickolodeon first started, I guess back in the early 80′s, the used to air these shows all the time.

    With the catalog of tv shows that exists, why, oh, why has Nick at Night (or TV Land, or whichever of those networks on cable) stuck us with a lineup of 2 Home Improvement, followed by 2 George Lopez, lather, rinse, repeat. Or The Fresh Prince, or even, MASH, ad infinitum. It seems like they should be able to get a lot more creative in their programming.

    I mean, you could have a 50′s night, a 60′s night, a comedy night by decade; a sci-fi series night. I could go on, but you get my drift.

    With the number of television stations available on cable or satellite, why, oh why is it the same stuff over and over? And why can’t they indulge people like me, whose Friday and Saturday night party days are long over, and put on some of these shows? There is literally NOTHING on during the weekends. It’s insulting.

    Of course during baseball season, the problem almost goes away…..

  216. Doreen February 5th, 2009 at 10:12 pm

    It would actually help DVD sales to air these series, too.

    there are some things you do that are so bad in life you never get to take them back. cashman put a curse on himself on that one.

    from that point on nothing good has happened with cashman. what have they won? nada.

    the yankees won’t win until cashman is gone.
    it’s going to be known as the curse of bernie.

    I really can’t get past the A-Fraud thing. If it’s true that the A-Fraud thing was done in jest, directly to Alex, then Joe is guilty of lying in the book. If it’s true that the A-Fraud thing was done in jest, but that players ALSO at some point called Alex that behind his back, then Joe is guilty of withholding specific information (conveniently, the type of information that would humanize the guy and show that he was not disliked on his own team).

    Batman got a lot better when Commisioner Gordon’s daughter, Barbara put on the skin tight leathers and became Batgirl (Yvonne Craig was gorgeous). Eartha Kitt was also Catwoman. Vincent Price, Burgess Merideth, Liberace, Victor Buono (King Tut) were great.

    Mike Cameron is terrible. The last thing the Yanks need is another whiff machine. Last vid I saw of Andruw, he had a belly that made me feel good about myself. If anything, the Mets should sign him as a flyer for RF. He hasn’t been a great CF since he bulked up a few years back. He’s been living on rep. I want a true CF to hit 9th. A Gardner type fast slappy great defense guy but not sure if he’s ready. I’d much rather give him a shot than the other options I’ve heard.

    Another two shows that probably were only on for a season or two at the most were Please Don’t Eat the Daisies (with Pat Crowley) and The Ghost & Mrs. Muir (with Hope Lange). I think they were both movies first. The “Daisies” show had a bit sheepdog and what seemed like a lot of kids. Either the wife or the husband was a writer, I think. Anyway, I loved the house it was set in.

  230. Mark in Tampa February 5th, 2009 at 10:30 pm

    GB7,

    I recently read a book called The Jedburghs, written by a former SF officer, Bill Irwin. It is a non-fiction book about, obviously, the OSS Jedburgh teams infiltrated into France in 1944. He has detailed accounts of the experiences of about 5 of the teams.

    One on the team leaders, who I am sure you are familiar with, Aaron Bank, wrote a great fictional book called Knight’s Cross. He was given the mission to capture Hitler in the closing days of the war. The mission was scrapped, but the book is an interesting what-if.

  231. bigjf February 5th, 2009 at 10:31 pm

    I think the best option to start out the season is to try Damon as the everyday CF. Yes, his arm stinks, but he can still go back and get the ball. I’d hate to see Swisher on the bench. I can live with Nady on the bench, even though he’s making too much money this year for that. Maybe one of them will be traded (hopefully Damon or Nady, if anybody), but there’s enough flexibility where you can put Melky in for defense late in the game (maybe shift Damon over to LF at that point). I don’t know whether Matsui will see anytime in the field, but I agree that I can’t see Gardner or Melky forcing someone like Swisher to the bench.

    GB, as I’m not a guy, I can’t say as I have much use for Batgirl. She was the Scrappy Doo of Superhero tv shows – she just got in the way. Eartha Kitt was ok – no one could hold a candle to Julie Newmar, though. Vincent Price as Egghead was classic……I remember Liberace, lol. He played twins on the show. Ah, I loved the King Tut character…….Art Carney played the Minstrel, lol, and Shelley Winters played Ma Parker. What a cast of characters, lol.

    I never saw the Green Hornet, just the Batman eppy of same.

    Todd, that’s right, lol. The Bradys sure knew/had connections to famous people – Davy Jones, Desi Arnez, Jr. (according to Alice, her friend was Lucy’s housekeeper, lol).

    You don’t have to tone it down. I think it’s clear what your opinion is of Cashman, so I kind of know what to expect. :) No one is going to change that opinion. It doesn’t bother me. I don’t understand the intensity of your dislike of him, and you don’t understand why I tend to give him the benefit of the doubt. That’s okay by me. It makes for interesting conversation.

    The Yankees hadn’t won since 2000 and Cash and Bernie got along just fine in most of those years. Your curse theory has some holes.

    It would be worth a watch.

    Besides Costas being a great listen in general, he went at the interview from a different angle than most others who spoke with Joe.

    Apparently Sheets knew all along that flexor tendon surgery was a possibility, but was trying to go instead with resting it. The Brewers were praying that he’d be signed by another team so they could unload the damaged goods and get a draft pick.

    Instead the Brewers are left with the cost of surgery and rehab for Sheets, who could sign in June with a team, whereupon the Brewers would not get a draft pick.

    DT, I think it was just before the Boston series started.

    ***The Yankees won their seventh straight American League East championship. In the 2004 ALDS, Mariano appeared in all four games and allowed no earned runs, despite blowing a save.[38] However, following the ALDS, joy turned to mourning for Rivera. He learned that two of his relatives in Panama had been killed at his home when electrified guard wire fell into the pool they were in. Rivera immediately flew home, and his status for the upcoming ALCS was in doubt. Although the funeral in Panama was held on the same day as Game 1 against the Boston Red Sox, Rivera flew 2,200 miles back to New York and arrived at Yankee Stadium in the 5th inning to a standing ovation.[2] Having suffered through a very emotional day, Rivera was able to record a save later that night, as well as in Game 2***

    GB – I would think a movie about Bill Stephenson, A Man called Inpreded, would be the ultimate war movie. He was basically the #1 secret agent in the world at the time of WWII. The #3 working under him was a gent named Ian Flemming, and the James Bonds books were basically modeled after Stephenson.

    “Stephenson’s official title was British Passport Control Officer. His unofficial mission was to create a secret British intelligence network throughout the western hemisphere, and to operate covertly and very broadly on behalf of the British government and the Allies in aid of winning the war. He also became Churchill’s personal representative to U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

    Stephenson was soon a very close advisor to FDR, and suggested to Roosevelt that he put Stephenson’s good friend William J. ‘Wild Bill’ Donovan in charge of all U.S. intelligence services. Donovan founded the U.S. wartime Office of Strategic Services (OSS) which eventually became the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).”

    i have a hunch it’ll be a synergy thing when together the trouble caused will be more than the some of the parts.

    gb7 got a week full of lessons from orville moody who was so distressed that he sent gb7 to vietnam a few weeks later. orville won the us open a year later despite watching gb7′s swing. he’s actually my partner. but that doesn’t mean i’m safe . with his swing no one is safe on a golf course.

    pat m can hook and slice equally well, but i think he’s a bit of a sand bagger who’s better than he’s letting on.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    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.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
