Coke to pitch out of the bullpen

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Feb 23, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

I stopped Joe Girardi in the clubhouse today as I wanted to get some clarification on how they plan to use Phil Coke.

The verdict is … reliever.

“He’s a guy we see being able to pitch multiple innings out of the bullpen. That’s how we’re going to try and develop him,” Girardi said. “Right now, he’s not a starter.”

If Coke gets stretched out enough, he would fit into that long reliever role. But being left-handed, he also could be used situationally.

“I feel like I could go four innings if they want or pitch to one batter,” Coke said yesterday. “I started a lot in the minors but I liked pitching in relief last year. Whatever they want.”

Coke is an interesting player to keep an eye on as he was sort of muddling along before emerging last season. Keep in mind that he is going to be 27 in July. This is not some kid. But as impressive as he looked in the majors last season, September innings for a third-place team can’t be trusted. He still needs to prove himself.

————

Meanwhile it was reported last night that A-Rod has — you guessed it — hired another advisor!

Congratulations to attorney Jay Reisinger, he is now part of the team. Reisinger represented Sammy Sosa and Andy Pettitte during their PED problems. It’s probably too late to tell Alex to pretend he can’t speak English, however.

The current list of advisors (as of 11:25 a.m.):

· Scott Boras, sports agent

· Guy Oseary, Hollywood agent

· William Morris Agency

· Richard Rubenstein, PR guru

· Ben Porritt, crisis-management consultant

· James Sharp, attorney

· Jay Reisinger, attorney

· Jason Zillo, Yankees media relations director

    A-rod’s got his own stimulus package in effect

  2. Sea Net February 23rd, 2009 at 11:31 am

    Great move… Coke should be a reliever. He should be a favorite to get a job. He’s lefty and can do a number of things.

  3. Patrick February 23rd, 2009 at 11:32 am

    Sounds like they are going to try to make Coke into this season’s Ohlendorf. Bring him out of the bullpen and have him pitch multiple innings. I hope they utilize him better than they used Ohlendorf last year (don’t burn him out).

    Its probably the right move, I don’t think Coke has a good enough 2nd and 3rd pitch to be a successful starter. Ideally I’d like to see Coke as a set-up guy rather than a long reliever.

  4. Joe February 23rd, 2009 at 11:34 am

    So he hired the attorney AFTER his steroid confession and press conference?

    Sometimes I think he just does things for the heck of it.

  5. pat February 23rd, 2009 at 11:34 am

    A 27 year old lefty coming into his own sounds about right if you listen to old school baseball guys.

    A-Rod has 2-3 more than Pettitte had. Sounds about right all things considered.

  6. Peter Abraham February 23rd, 2009 at 11:35 am

    If people persist in doing the “First!” thing I will ban you. That sort of stupidity is not what we want. Go post on a High School Musical Blog or something.

  7. Joe February 23rd, 2009 at 11:37 am

    Coke would be a waste as a ‘long man’… isin’t that what Aceves/Giese are for?

    However, Coke could be that 2nd long man or emergency long man. He could be that middle inning workhorse to bridge the gap from the starter to Bruney/Marte (like if a starter goes out in the 4th or 5th inning).

  8. miggs February 23rd, 2009 at 11:38 am

    Didn’t see new thread…..

    Thought this was interesting…

    BP projects A Rod to fall short of record.

  9. SamVa February 23rd, 2009 at 11:39 am

    Doesn’t this just make him look worse? I mean obviously if he was confident that he was clean he wouldn’t need more defense. I just want Spring to start and this to be over with. I hate to say that I expected A-Rod of roids… but I did. I am disappointed in him.. but what can you expect.. He was under a lot of pressure. He wanted that big long term contract. I feel for guys, especially pitchers, who are clean though. I mean Oswalt was right, A-Rod and others may have taken some wins away from him, they might have taken away some of their salaries. Disappointment is awful, but as long as I don’t find out guys like Jeter (in my opinion, no matter how poor his performance is in the game, he is the epitome of class) AS long as I don’t find out that guys like him did it. I feel like Baseball can still be routed for.. If I find out that baseball is as roid-ridden as it seemingly appears.. It’s going to be hard to stay a fan.

  10. m February 23rd, 2009 at 11:40 am

    Pete,

    Thanks for clarifying Coke’s role. I had been thinking that Coke to a rotation was a red herring in the Pettitte negotiations because Coke wasn’t much of a starter. When he went to the pen his velocity shot up and he did quite well in his callup.

    I’d rather have Aceves as the long guy and keep Coke in the role he had last season. Aceves is also capable of making spot starts without any roster moves.

  11. Patrick February 23rd, 2009 at 11:40 am

    I don’t think Coke will be relegated to one roll. He can get a lefty out here and there but he can also cover multiple innings because of his background as a starter. I hope that Girardi uses him in different situations rather than keep him as a long reliever. I think the bullpen should be:

    Rivera, Bruney, Marte, Melancon, Coke, Veras/Ramirez/Albaladejo/Robertson, Giese/Aceves

  12. Chip February 23rd, 2009 at 11:43 am

    That’s hard to say that A-Rod can’t hit 210 homers in 9 seasons. Yeah, he probably won’t maintain the pace that he’s on but all he has to do is hit 24 a year over that nine year span to break it.

  13. Adam H, February 23rd, 2009 at 11:44 am

    you would think one of his advisors would advise him not to hire any more advisors…

  14. rodg12 February 23rd, 2009 at 11:44 am

    Coke checked in as the Yankees 10th-best prospect according to Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Propectus on his list just released today. Here’s the rest:

    Five-Star Prospects
    1. Jesus Montero, C
    2. Austin Jackson, CF

  15. Kevin February 23rd, 2009 at 11:44 am

    SamVa, did Pettitte hiring the same lawyer last year make anybody else think he was guilty of more than he admitted? And since when was hiring legal representation indicative of guilt?

    Pete, I agree that Team A-Rod is ponderous, but Sharp may be one of the more important guys on it. He’s represented other admitted/accused users in the past, such as Pettitte and Sosa. If Congress ever decides to flex its muscles again and bring Alex before them, this is a good guy to have on board.

  16. Jeet Skeet February 23rd, 2009 at 11:46 am

    that insider story is just a waste..its amazing the types of stories those espn writers put out. Just non sense really

    BTW, the PED’s limited blog has been outstanding the past few days…big props to everyone who’s refrained from posting too much of that junk. i’m pumped for this season!

  18. Chip February 23rd, 2009 at 11:47 am

    That more than likely means that Coke will be making the team out of camp. If they didn’t plan on having him in there, they’d keep him as a starter in order to keep his value up for a possible future trade. That means,

    Rivera
    Bruney
    Marte
    Coke

    with Veras and Edwar showing last season that they can hold their own. That leaves one spot which is the long-man. Looks like Robertson and Melancon may be on the outside looking in

  19. darkmoonfire February 23rd, 2009 at 11:47 am

    So not a starter then, fewer innings… like Coke Light.

    (Sorry, I had to:))

    That’s is just nasty to think, Coke as a long reliever ? Ramiro Mendoza on steroids and throws LH

  21. Bronx Baseball Daily February 23rd, 2009 at 11:51 am

    Coke had a jump in velocity last season. So he’s not exactly the same guy who was a middling prospect a few years ago. What he can do is really anyone’s guess though. I’m very interested in seeing what he’s got though.

  22. rodg12 February 23rd, 2009 at 11:52 am

    darkmoonfire :

    More like Diet Coke.

  23. Tom February 23rd, 2009 at 11:54 am

    Maybe Alex could hire me to write an epic poem about him.

  24. m February 23rd, 2009 at 11:55 am

    I didn’t read the article, but the only thing that can hold back Alex’s quest is his mind. Physically he would hold up and obviously has the power. I hope that Alex has a good WBC. We’ll see if he can leave it all in the clubhouse when he hits the field.

  25. Phil February 23rd, 2009 at 11:55 am

    Coke’s slider went from average to plus/plus last year, and that’s whare really transformed him. He was finally healthy so the fastball was there (a few years ago a lot of the minor leaguers in the system would bring up his name as having the best stuff). He and Hacker both got healtht, got sliders and exploded last year.

  29. Robb February 23rd, 2009 at 11:58 am

    I think Coke is going to be a very effective arm in the pen. Being a lefty who can throw 2+ innings gives Girardi so many options on how to use him. I have a feeling Coke is going to make a very positive impact this year. -Jersey Hardball Blog

  30. rmel February 23rd, 2009 at 11:58 am

    Smart move using Coke that way…..J.P. Howell was used that way last year with the Rays and was very successful….I think Coke could make some spot starts if necessary

  31. Sevrx February 23rd, 2009 at 11:59 am

    Coke can be a

    - lefty specialist
    - setup man
    - 7th inning guy
    - middle innings eater (5th-7th)
    - multiple innings
    - long man/mop up man
    - emergency starter

    Since most of our BP consists of 1 inning guys, Coke can be a valuable asset.

  32. SteveB February 23rd, 2009 at 12:00 pm

    To me that means Coke has more of a chance of making the club now. I like him better in that role anyway.

    a-rod is doing the right thing. Try to contain it now, as much as possible, and don’t chance something stupid that kills you for the long-term. When you are bringing home $32 million in 2009, you have no excuse if you scr*w up because you didn’t get the best ‘team’ money can buy. This is not the time to be penny wise.

  33. Chien-Ming Vase February 23rd, 2009 at 12:01 pm

    arod, i got some free advice for you: stop lying.

  34. murphydog February 23rd, 2009 at 12:04 pm

    Hey, attorneys have to eat too. (No, really).

    “Shortly after Sports Illustrated’s Feb. 7 report that Rodriguez had tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003, he hired James E. Sharp, whom Reisinger had brought in to help represent Sosa before Congress.”

    http://mlb.mlb.com/news/articl.....8;c_id=mlb

    Wouldn’t surprise me that it was A-Rod’s intention to hire both Sharp and Reisinger all along, although they could have tried to get away on the cheap until Sharp convinced them otherwise. Better to have both from the beginning: a) to be sure both lawyers are available if and when things heat up and b) to avoid having to bring Reisinger up to speed later.

    Looks like they are trying hard to head this one off at the pass in Congress… Sharp and Reisinger together appear to have the D.C. connections needed for this kind of engagement. It could also be however that they are seriously concerned that this is far, far from over with the Feds. These things are outside Boras’ area of expertise.

    FYI, strange side line: Reisinger looks like he joined a branch of Dreier LLP last year. Talk about bad timing. Dreier LLP imploded recently after name partner Marc Dreier was indicted on big money fraud charges.

  35. Chip February 23rd, 2009 at 12:05 pm

    Yes, Coke could be a spot starter/long man but I doubt they’ll have him go more than 2 innings at a time. It’s the same deal with Ohlendorf last season, he’s great for an inning or two because he can throw at max effort the entire time but doesn’t have the stamina to keep his fastball at 93 and his slider tight beyond that. There’s a reason he’s making the team as a reliever and not a starter, he just doesn’t have the stuff to get through a ML lineup twice

  36. gayle February 23rd, 2009 at 12:08 pm

    from George King.I want to know who it came from

    Girardi also explained that banning candy and certain snacks from the clubhouse last year didn’t come from him.

    “That was an organizational thing, not a Joe Girardi rule,” Girardi said. “It didn’t come from me. Do I put chocolate kisses in my mouth? Yes, I do.”

    rodg12, thanks for posting Goldstein’s list. Coke and Aceves probably shouldn’t be on there. Jairo Heredia should be there, I’m a little dissapointed he isn’t. I’m also a bit surprised Goldstein rates Jackson as a 5-star prospect.

    And it’s not like Nate said A-Rod has *no* chance. He gave him a 4-in-10 shot at Aaron, and a 3-in-10 shot at Bonds, although I’m not quite sure why those last seven home runs represent a 10% gap. Still, he’s more likely to catch Aaron than he is to get on base in any given at-bat. His chances aren’t all that bad.

  44. m February 23rd, 2009 at 12:14 pm

    jennifer,

    I don’t get all the angst about the no-candy rule. This is a professional sports team, there shouldn’t be ice cream machines and tons of candy in the middle of the clubhouse. I think the rule is totally legitimate. If players want to eat junk they can do it on their own but the team shouldn’t provide it for them.

  50. kd February 23rd, 2009 at 12:20 pm

    I like having more than one lefty in the pen. it’s important to be able to let other teams know that there are options that Girardi can call upon. Our starters are better than they have been in years and with a strong bullpen, it puts a lot more pressure on the other team.

    One of the things I hope the Yankees do this year is work at bats so 6 or 7 inning starters become 5 inning guys, Tex, Posada, and Swish will help with that.

  51. Jeremy February 23rd, 2009 at 12:20 pm

    The problem with judging Coke’s ML experience isn’t that in came in September for a third place team. That doesn’t matter – it’s the quality of opponents that predominantly affects a pitcher’s performance, not the quality of his own team.

    The problem is that he only pitched 14 2/3 innings and doesn’t have an outstanding track record.

    That said, I like giving him a shot and making the most out of his versatility. He is our backup lefty after Marte and could end up filling a number of important roles for us.

    As for ARod and Reisinger, I don’t think it’s quite accurate to group ARod’s lawyers with his PR/crisis management people. The latter group is there to protect the ARod “brand,” and are fair game for ridicule. But considering the sort of time and money the government has devoted to the PED issue in baseball, I can’t blame ARod for hiring as many well-connected lawyers as possible.

  52. Zolio February 23rd, 2009 at 12:20 pm

    I always felt it was a rule coming from Cashman… during the entire 07 off-season, he complained about how several veterans were not in shape and needed to take care of their body better. He even commented how Betemit was eating ice cream on the couch instead of working out.

    So I guess this rule might have come from Cashman himself and he hid behind Girardi. Pretty cold…..

  53. Jeremy February 23rd, 2009 at 12:22 pm

    I always find it funny that fans bashed Girardi for the “no candy” rule but also bashed him for not being tough enough on Cano and Melky. Girardi was either this ultra-strict taskmaster or asleep at the wheel while his players goofed off.

  54. Y's Guy February 23rd, 2009 at 12:23 pm

    They are going to play in teams of two and they’re going to have two separate 8-ball tournaments — complete with March Madness-style brackets and all. They are also going to rotate partners. Should make for some interesting combinations. The winners will receive a gift certificate to a restaurant, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to be anyone that’s teaming up with with Posada.

    Said Posada of his pool skills: “I suck.”

  60. bob February 23rd, 2009 at 12:29 pm

    I wonder how many of the many advisers A-Rod has pissed-off? The thing about advisers/lawyers/etc… is they have to work with the knowledge a person is willing to give them. They can ask and plead with A-Rod to tell them everything so that they can do their best for their client in light of the whole truth, but usually, and likely in A-Rod’s case, they are only given an incomplete picture by their client. Or are told outright lies or at best partial truths. Or some combination thereof. This is understandable when the client has much to hide, but ultimately it makes things only worse. Thus it becomes death by a thousand cuts and the many, many advisers can only apply bandages and wait for the next shoe to drop (to pile metaphor upon metaphor).
    Toronto gets me to thinking about the very, indeed peculiarly, muscular woman A-Rod was spotted with last year and whom he had been traveling with during road trips last year. The woman before Madonna and after whomever. Anyway, I suspect advisers might be but a small fraction of the “fees” being sought from A-Rod.

  61. Gman February 23rd, 2009 at 12:30 pm

    Does anyone agree that Arod will not finish his career with the Yankees? It’s been said that his breaking records is tainted by steroids, and as he approaches those milestones it won’t mean as much. I’m not so concerned about Major League records, since Bonds, Mcguire, Sosa, and others have already tainted the books. But it’s the Yankee records that concern me. As Arod climbs up there, he’s going to surpass some great Yankees. Does the team actually care that he could have his name up there with the likes of Ruth, Gehrig, Dimaggio, and Mantle? I think this could be the one factor that could see him traded in the next year or two. That, and maybe Jeter wanting him off the club.

    His contract would be tough to move, but if the Yanks take a chunk of salary, and another teams headache, someone will take him. When the time is right, he will go.

  62. jennifer February 23rd, 2009 at 12:31 pm

    While it’s very early, the team seems to be getting along quite well together. On Sunday night, C.C. Sabathia, A.J. Burnett, Brian Bruney and a clubhouse attendant all took in the Orlando Magic game from courtside. (C.C. is buddies with Michael Beasley of the visiting Miami Heat.) Now comes the bowling tournament, with players paired up with random teammates – including the duo of Kei Igawa and Andrew Brackman.

    Will a cohesive clubhouse make a difference on the field? Who knows? But as Posada said, “Nothing bad can come of this.”

    Who cares who A-Rod hires? This so-called “news reporting” is so tired.

    Any of you catch Don Mattingly’s comments? I noticed Peter didn’t mention them, so perhaps they aren’t legit? Supposedly Joel Sherman quoted him as basically asking people to leave A-Rod alone and move on.

  66. gayle February 23rd, 2009 at 12:37 pm

    Think the Yankees have had a disruptive camp?

    How about the Nationals. first one of the big prospects it comes out lied about his age. Jose Rio was asked to leave the team because of it. Jim Bowden is under federal investigation and now Odalis Perez was cut after he didn’t show up to camp. Talk about a fun camp.

    I was watching the 30 in 30 MLB network special about the Twins last night. They were saying that the Twins need young bullpen arms and have a surplus of outfielders. Any chance that a package of Robertson and Veras brings back Delmon Young or Gonzalez?

  69. Y's Guy February 23rd, 2009 at 12:42 pm

    so alex and his lineup are bringing a new guy up to speed and at some point he’s sitting at the table with all the others as they go over strategies to head off congressional investigation, stonewall the mlb investigation, assess his legal vulnerabilites, work on restoring his image and they turn to the new guy and say, so what do you think?

    its at this point that he has to decide, ‘do i tell him the truth, or do i want a paycheck?

    “His contract would be tough to move, but if the Yanks take a chunk of salary, and another teams headache, someone will take him. When the time is right, he will go.”

    If Hank hadn’t stepped in to open the door after the infamous “opt out,” A-Rod would already be somewhere else by now. So it’s only fitting that Hank will have to eat a huge portion of A-Rod’s salary if he ever wants to move the Pinstriped Albatross.

    IMO, A-Rod’s present timetable is 18 months to two years, probably a quote right out of a presentation given by his PR guy. It’s his hint that no matter how bad this gets (assuming there’s no jail or indictment) he’ll be looking to stick it out at least that long at worst.

    “Any chance that a package of Robertson and Veras brings back Delmon Young or Gonzalez?”

    I would love to give Delmon Young another shot however he is a corner OF and is too big for CF which is where we would need him. Also Minny would want more than Veras/Robertson, they did after all trade Matt Garza for him.

  72. jack February 23rd, 2009 at 12:47 pm

    A-Rod – million dollar talent, 10 cent head.

  73. Mark in Tampa February 23rd, 2009 at 12:47 pm

    kd,

    The Twins handed the Rays the pennant by giving up Garza and Bartlett for Delmon Young. They will only justify trading him if they get a package that equates in their mind. I don’t think Veras and Robertson is even close, or any bullpen arm aside from Mariano. I would think it would take Hughes and Melky to get the Twins to move, and I think that is too steep for the Yanks to pay.

  74. 7*7 February 23rd, 2009 at 12:48 pm

    If A-Rod was 100% clean and had nothing to hide, then he wouldn’t be hiring all these advisory teams.

    You don’t go to these lengths to secure these advice/legal firms if you don’t have some serious skeletons.

    Hey, attorneys have to eat too. (No, really).

    “Shortly after Sports Illustrated’s Feb. 7 report that Rodriguez had tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003, he hired James E. Sharp, whom Reisinger had brought in to help represent Sosa before Congress.”

    http://mlb.mlb.com/news/articl.....8;c_id=mlb

    Wouldn’t surprise me that it was A-Rod’s intention to hire both Sharp and Reisinger all along, although they could have tried to get away on the cheap until Sharp convinced them otherwise. Better to have both from the beginning: a) to be sure both lawyers are available if and when things heat up and b) to avoid having to bring Reisinger up to speed later.

    Looks like they are trying hard to head this one off at the pass in Congress… Sharp and Reisinger together appear to have the D.C. connections needed for this kind of engagement. It could also be however that they are seriously concerned that this is far, far from over with the Feds. These things are outside Boras’ area of expertise.

    FYI, strange side line: Reisinger looks like he joined a branch of Dreier LLP last year. Talk about bad timing. Dreier LLP imploded recently after name partner Marc Dreier was indicted on big money fraud charges.

    ————————————————————

    Perhaps the reason for the extra people is to help track down that leak. If they pin this on somebody in the government, heads will roll. Same thing if it was a leak (less likely), somebody is gone.

    Selig will do almost anything to protect Aaron’s legacy. Perhaps he should start looking into drug use in the clubhouse from the ’20s forward. Aaron has admitted to using speed, as has nearly everydody else, including Ralph Kiner. It was not a secret.

  76. Ca$hmoney February 23rd, 2009 at 12:50 pm

    A-Rod knwos there is going to be more than is uncovered and even more stuff from the Roberts book that has the potential to do even more damage to him… thats why he is hiring all these people to prepare him for when the next shoe drops.

  77. Al February 23rd, 2009 at 12:50 pm

    Come on, Pete, enough with the A-Rod advisor stuff. All big stars must have at least 3, 4, or 5 close advisors, and having an additional one or two when YOU ARE THE BIGGEST STORY IN SPORTS does not seem unreasonable? Should he trust Scott Boras with crisis management? or a professional crisis management firm? The answer seems obvious to me.

    I mean, if you look at Jeter, he must have a sports agent, Hollywood/Marketing Agent, the Yankees PR guy (which you, Pete, would only include as an unfair jab at A-Rod), and attorney (or two.)

    That’s 4 or 5 guys right there. So yes, A-Rod has one or two more guys working for him, but I would sure as hell want a bunch of professionals helping me on this one.

    You dislike A-Rod so much, Pete, and particularly the way he handles the media, yet you get on him when he tries to hire professional help to make him better at these things? Which way do you want it, Pete?

    The yankees will not make any more moves before the season starts barring injury. They will however explore a trade for a CF once the season is underway if neither brett nor melky are providing enough from that position. By this time the yankees will have a better idea of what they have in terms of bullpen arms.

Who cares where or who he got it from the fact is he juiced got caught and now he has to repair his image any other news from here on out is just semantics trying to sell papers.

    Good point Al,

    Can we please just talk baseball. I know everyone is bored because the yankees are playing pool but give it a rest. Nothing he did in my opinion is as bad as the slanted journalism and reporting that is trying to bury him. When ESPN actually gathers and reports all of the facts on a breaking news discovery about A-Rod, maybe then I will believe something they say.

  84. Peter Abraham February 23rd, 2009 at 1:01 pm

    Al:

    Actually, you are wrong, Most guys have their agent and one person who handles their non-baseball marketing, appearances, etc. That person usually works with or is associated with the agent.

    Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera and Jorge Posada do not have Hollywood agents, talent managers and PR flacks. They also have four rings, which may not be a coincidence.

    The Associated Press reported the most recent addition, so it seemed like a decent item to throw on the blog.

    As for handling the media, you know how most guys do it? They answer questions when asked and act like normal people act. It’s not exactly rocket science.

  85. burnett after reading February 23rd, 2009 at 1:02 pm

    GB7, Awesome point

    Who in the heck would anyway want playing third base and batting clean up for our baseball team. There is literally no one even close so suck it up and root for him and if not at least the team he plays for.

  86. bases clearing two bagger February 23rd, 2009 at 1:04 pm

    yeah, al, how could anything be worse than a failed drug test 6 years ago?

    so nobody should be allowed to ask why he was putting up a known ped dealer with his cousin so he could be at needle’s distance for all of 2007.

    nobody should ask if he used last year either.

    and nobody has any right to ask if he is still using.

    because a failed test in 2003 i embarrasing enough, right?

  87. Mark in Tampa February 23rd, 2009 at 1:04 pm

    GreenBeret7,

    I know how you like Edwin Jackson, I always liked him too. I play golf semi-regularly with one of the Tigers pitching coaches, and he can’t believe how good Jackson’s arm is, and that the Rays gave him up for what he called “a potentially average outfielder” in Joyce. He says the way Jackson lets the ball go so far ahead of the rubber makes it very difficult for hitters to pick up his pitches. Also, he is non-committal on Verlander, and doesn’t want to talk about Dontrelle.

  88. burnett after reading February 23rd, 2009 at 1:06 pm

    By any chance did you see the 30/30 on the yankees on mlb tv?
    The three panelists all decided that Joba Chamberlain absolutely needed to be in the bullpen without question. I found that to be quite amusing.

    “I’m still waiting for the “deep thinkers” that are wanting to get rid of Rodriguez to explain who will play third base.”

    I agree especially because they want the Yankees to cut A-Rod and eat 275 million. I think despite this scandal A-Rod will still put up A-Rod numbers and where else are we going to find 40 HR’s and 120 RBI?

  90. GreenBeret7 February 23rd, 2009 at 1:07 pm

    I just like that arm. I know almost nothing about him other than his baseball life. LA just about ruined him with the way he was handled. Hard to believe that he’s still only 24 years old. Seems like he’s been in the majors 15 years. The control will come around, when, like all hard throwing kids, realize that he doesn’t have to throw everything with max effort. One thing about him…he’s always been healthy. With Verlander (if he rebounds) and Jackson, back to back, that could be a tough 3 game series.

    “Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera and Jorge Posada do not have Hollywood agents, talent managers and PR flacks. They also have four rings, which may not be a coincidence.”

    This is a curious statement.

    Jeter has an astonishing array of endorsements. His name is a brand that is slapped on a gym and a cologne. There is no way he handles all of his non-baseball business with just two people. I imagine he has a small army of business and brand management people, including “talent managers and PR flacks,” working for him.

    No one bashes Jeter for it because it doesn’t detract from Jeter’s game.

    To my knowledge, no one on the Yankees has a “Hollywood agent.” They do have agents who push for big contracts, like Rivera and Posada got last year. Nothing wrong with that, by the way.

    I don’t see what your point is either. Is it that Jeter, Rivera, and Posada have rings because they don’t hire many advisers, or that they don’t hire many advisers because they have rings?

But more likely than not, she didn’t want to tip off team A-rod. So she flew down to Miami and chased him around town (this can’t be denied). She went to his home in hopes of what? Catching him coming out of his house? If the guards had just let her in, I think she would’ve waited in her car in front of his house. Why didn’t she ring the doorbell if she had every right to be there?

He had his shirt off on a hot day in Central Park, getting a tan….like a thousand other guys every day (and, probably a few women), talking about him being an exhibitionist…then turn around and talk about him getting a phony tan in a tanning salon.

    Another is that questioning an aggressive NYS Dep’t. of Taxation and Finance position on how much you owe is quite different from taking steroids and PEDs to artificially boost your performance on teh field. Do that second thing and there is no DL (Down Low).

  114. 86w183 February 23rd, 2009 at 1:52 pm

    Coke to the pen is the right move. A lefty who can get one out or pitch three innings is a real asset. It’s also going to light a fire under Veras, Albaladejo, Robertson et al because that may mean one less job for the righties to fight over.

    They should be training all of those “middle” guys to pitch two inning stints.

    Interesting stuff on Jackson. He started putting it together last year and I think the Rays could have gotten much more for him.

    “This is not unusual. Alex clearly has a problem handling the media and this is what he chooses to do. Get over it.”

    Agreed. Obviously Alex can hire whoever he wants.

    The decision whether to hire an attorney(s) at this stage of the “inquiry” is always a tough one becasue if you do, you can look guilty just for protecting yourself. But when the stakes are high enough, you take that risk and hire the attorney because the preception, while bad enough, is nothing compared to actually being arrested and/or indicted.

    Seriously, you don’t strap on talent like that unless you think (fear) there might be some potential criminal exposure. At the very least he wants to avoid an invitation to come to Congress.

    Thus, the present A-Rod drama is several orders of magnitude worse than just a problem handling the media.

    Nevermind that, if there was one person to blame for the Yankees not winning 2 additional WS, it would be Mariano for his blown saves in ’01 and ’04. Maybe he channeled his inner-A-Rod and decided he was going to pitch in am “image-concious” manner instead of his usual “anything-for-the-win” mode. I guess he cared too much about his career post-season stats, and thus blew the saves.
