Yankees beat Blue Jays, 6-1

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Feb 25, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Dave Robertson loaded the bases in the ninth but escaped as the Yankees won their exhibition opener 6-1.

Back in a bit after I get a little newspaper work done. Reggie Jackson had some interesting comments.

  2. yankeefan91 Arod fan February 25th, 2009 at 4:13 pm

    i wonder what were the comments reggie said i wouldnt b shock if is about arod

  3. Stephen February 25th, 2009 at 4:15 pm

    If it’s Reggie, the comments were probably about himself.

  4. swc February 25th, 2009 at 4:15 pm

    I bet Reggie is thinking about lacing ‘em up again…

    Very excited to see Melancon and Coke tomorrow

  6. Kevin (not that Kevin) Brown February 25th, 2009 at 4:19 pm

    Did I miss the explanation as to why Teixiera didn’t play?

  7. ohgodno February 25th, 2009 at 4:21 pm

    I agree Jason, I want to see them both, I’m also excited to see AJAX a year later.

    Gardner is gonna win CF…Might be only one game, might be only 1 hit, but something tells me hes not going to allow this battle to be lost

    Tex didn’t play because it was a road game. They never take the whole team on road trips in ST.

  10. Steve M February 25th, 2009 at 4:24 pm

    Mark didn’t play probably because (all my guesses):

    1) they didn’t need all starters to play away
    2) the only reasons DJ, Cano & A-Rod played were bc Joe is losing them to the WBC, Tex will have plenty of opportunities to play when they’re playing in that.
    3) Mark is a notorious slow starter in April and May, I’m sure they are probably going to experiment with ways to get him better prepared for the start of the season which may include playing less spring games.

  11. Drew February 25th, 2009 at 4:24 pm

    Reggie was a tremendous jack ass as a person, but A-Rod could learn a thing or two about hitting in the clutch from him.

  12. Burnett after reading February 25th, 2009 at 4:25 pm

    Pete, My friend at the game said that after the first error they seemed to pitch around the batter in the BB. Did Robertson just have bad control or do you think the errors had an effect?

  13. Al from BK(waiting for opening day!) February 25th, 2009 at 4:25 pm

    Brandon(from the last thread)- Lee is better than Brook Lopez give the guy a break. Lopez down the line might be a very good NBA center but he is not as athletic and he doesnt have a nose for the ball like Dave. Of course Lee isnt on the level of a Bosh, Stoudemire or Howard but he is a very good player who does all the dirty work without complaining. If we get another big man (Bosh, Amar) in 2010 Lee will be a perfect compliment in the front-court.

    More a.rod drama. Check out nypost com

  15. Jimmy February 25th, 2009 at 4:29 pm

    thanks for the live blog updates on the game my friend.

    curious how igawa pitched? I still have an ounce of hope for the fella….

  16. tampayank February 25th, 2009 at 4:30 pm

    Jackson told AROD “Hit the hell out of the ball and hit it when it counts”…via message from Hank

  17. rodg12 February 25th, 2009 at 4:30 pm

    Speaking of road games….I wonder if the ’3 regulars rule’ changes when the WBC games are going on. If not, looks like 3 of Tex, Damon, Nady, Swisher, Melky, Gardner will be making all the road trips while ARod, Jeter and Cano are gone.

  18. G. Love February 25th, 2009 at 4:30 pm

    I’m failing to see why there is any outrage over Arod getting a ride home from his cousin.

    What a non-story.

  19. Jason February 25th, 2009 at 4:34 pm

    I’m Glad that ARod is getting a ride home from his cousin… it shows he doesn’t care about what anyone thinks about him and he’s just going to live his life. Good for him… hes no longer the phony who tries to do the right thing and please everybody.

    Now he needs to go out to lunch with Angel Presinal

  20. Steve M February 25th, 2009 at 4:35 pm

    It’s the NYPost…

  21. darkmoonfire February 25th, 2009 at 4:35 pm

    That’s not more ARod drama. That’s the same old ARod tedious, boring drama being continually rehashed.

    Seriously, there’s baseball today, and from now on until November. Let’s talk baseball. I could care less if I never hear the name of ARod ever again.

  22. TexasYanksfan February 25th, 2009 at 4:38 pm

    I don’t care if it doesn’t mean squat. This is a great start to the season. But what exactly *did* Reggie say?

  23. Broken news February 25th, 2009 at 4:39 pm

    Bahhhstin walloped Bahhhstin College in a come from behind win, 7 – 1.

    Arod: “It’s what I do, I play baseball”

  25. rodg12 February 25th, 2009 at 4:49 pm

    It’s the Post. What do you expect? They’re tabloid trash.

  26. 86w183 February 25th, 2009 at 5:12 pm

    Reggie was a career .263 hitter with RISP with an .856 OPS

    ARod is a career .303 hitter with RISP with an .957 OPS

    Let’s hope Alex doesn’t aspire to those numbers.

    The only place where Reggie has phenomenal numbers is World Series play. In five W.S. he hit .357 with a .457 OBP and .755 SLG resulting in a mind-boggling 1.212 OPS

    However in 11 League Championship Series Reggie was pretty awful, hitting just .227 with a .678 OPS.

    Mr. October wasn’t a great clutch hitter except in the World Series (5X), which admittedly is a damn good time to come through. Hwoever he might have played in more than 5 World Series if he hadn’t stunk in several of his LCS appearances.

    this was prob posted earlier but just in case:

    ” ESPN’s Buster Olney believes Manny Ramirez remains unsigned because of his behavior in Boston:

    The primary reason for [the lack of interest in Manny], unquestionably, is the sport-wide perception that he did not honor his contract in Boston, and went to extraordinary depths to get himself out of that contract. These are not the on-background musings of a couple of rogue scouts, or the chortlings of conspiracy-theorist sports writers. This is the cemented belief of many executives with many teams, reinforced by Ramirez’s sudden transformation into a high-energy player as soon as he moved from the Red Sox to the Dodgers.

    In my opinion, the primary interest for the limited Manny interest is his asking price. At a time when solid corner outfielders are signing for $10MM per year tops, Manny wants more than twice that salary and at least three years guaranteed. I think if Ramirez and Boras were willing to take a reasonable two-year, $30MM deal, there’d be five more teams in on him.”

    i would LOVE to see Manny go unsigned so he can reflect on how much he screwed up. Manny being Manny was cute for lil’ Sawx fans but it don’t fly anywhere else.

Even so powerful that you simply can to get a split can destroy someone that only wants to generally be beloved as well as the unhappy point is always that appreciate onlybr /Comes at the time inside of a everyday living time.
