Breaking news: Nady injured

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Apr 14, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Xavier Nady had a “sharp pain” in his right elbow in the seventh inning and was taken out of the game.

He previously had elbow surgery.

MRI tomorrow.

UPDATE, 10:58 p.m.: Nady had Tommy John surgery on Sept. 29, 2001. He was injured tonight in the seventh inning when Carlos Pena singled and he threw the ball back to the infield.

“I’m definitely kind of nervous,” Nady said. “But I have to be optimistic. Hopefully it’s scar tissue breaking off. … It was very painful.”

If Nady is injured, the Yankees have a ready replacement in Superman Nick Swisher. But this greatly cuts down on their depth. Now you have to use Hideki Matsui and it’s harder to give Jorge Posada a day off and so on.

There are several options in AAA starting with Shelley Duncan and John Rodriguez. I would be shocked if they promoted Austin Jackson to be a bench player. He needs to play every day at this stage of his career.

Nady will have an MRI tomorrow morning and we should know more by the early afternoon. But it certainly sounds like bad news. For X’s sake, hopefully not.

    Oh wow, I was wondering why he was taken out.

  2. adam April 14th, 2009 at 10:27 pm

    well that sucks

  3. Perry April 14th, 2009 at 10:27 pm

    Not good but…I guess we wouldnt have to worry about fitting in Swisher anymore.

  4. Rishi April 14th, 2009 at 10:28 pm

    not good….wishing him all the best

  5. bodhisattva April 14th, 2009 at 10:28 pm

    Which elbow is it?

  6. Russell NY April 14th, 2009 at 10:29 pm

    Not good – now you can’t just slide Swisher in when you want to sit guys =(

  7. Tomer April 14th, 2009 at 10:29 pm

    Thats not good news but we can play Swisher as much as we want now. I guarantee Swisher will go back to his 08 form and cool off with Nady out. That is just the Yankees’ luck!

  8. SCRANTON April 14th, 2009 at 10:30 pm

  9. THU April 14th, 2009 at 10:30 pm

    I’m praying it nothing, Nady is a pretty part of the team and I’d hate to have him miss even a few games.

  10. Al from BK April 14th, 2009 at 10:30 pm

    Good news Swisher gets ALOT of at bats Bad news Poor Nady :(

  11. Jeter in LF April 14th, 2009 at 10:30 pm

    We cannot afford injuries. Feel better, Nady.

    But that’s why we have the depth.

    Bad way to end off a good night. :sad:

  16. Boston Dave April 14th, 2009 at 10:32 pm

    that is not good. as great as swisher has been, the yankees had room for error and could keep guys fresh because of their depth. now there is no room for error and their bench takes a big hit if he’s out for a while.

  17. jennifer April 14th, 2009 at 10:33 pm

    No- Shelley won’t be up. Shelley is not on the 40 man.

  18. eric April 14th, 2009 at 10:33 pm

    the bad news about swisher starting off so hot is that his expectations (especially in light of the nady injury) have now grown exponentially… there’s gonna be a lot of pissed off fans when he regresses to .240BA, and tons of K’s.

  19. jint51 April 14th, 2009 at 10:33 pm

    damn that really weakens our bench

  20. Swisher Brandon (I LOVE ME SOME ME !) April 14th, 2009 at 10:33 pm

    Well how the hell did that happen ! :x

  21. Boston Dave April 14th, 2009 at 10:33 pm

    at least wait until ARod is back to get hurt

  22. Carl April 14th, 2009 at 10:33 pm

  23. james April 14th, 2009 at 10:33 pm

    its not good at all what happens after the next injury melkey shelly

  24. jennifer April 14th, 2009 at 10:33 pm

    Same elbow he had TJ surgery on. When he threw the ball into second he felt a sharp pain. He hopes it is just scar tissue. Had surgery on it in 2001.

  25. Joe from Long Island April 14th, 2009 at 10:34 pm

    Depending on how serious it is, we may see how much they trust Melky. We’ll know the answer if Cash goes and trades an arm or two for an OF. (Lastings Milledge just got sent down to AAA by the Nats. If he’s got anything, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him as a low cost pickup.)

  26. Russell NY April 14th, 2009 at 10:34 pm

    It seems like the Yankees are ALWAYS decimated by the injury bug.

  27. jennifer April 14th, 2009 at 10:34 pm

    Good to see everyone crawled out of their holes.

  28. Russell NY April 14th, 2009 at 10:34 pm

    Joe – good pointing out Milledge. I’d take a flyer.

  29. Jeff NJ April 14th, 2009 at 10:35 pm

    Thank god Cashman didn’t listen to all those who said to trade Swisher or Nady. Depth is so so so important. Melky is hitting, start him. Of course start Swisher either for Matsui or Damon if he is still sick.

  30. Jeter in LF April 14th, 2009 at 10:35 pm

    Milledge isn’t free.

  31. joe April 14th, 2009 at 10:35 pm

    no position players on the 40 man except juan miranda (and francisco cervelli). I guess they could bring up miranda and go with cabrera as the only back up outfield (plus Matsui as emergency)

  32. Swisher Brandon (I LOVE ME SOME ME !) April 14th, 2009 at 10:36 pm

    I’d trade IPK+Melky for Milledge right now sign me up.

  33. andrew April 14th, 2009 at 10:36 pm

    well they just found where to put swisher in to get some AB’s

  34. Jeter in LF April 14th, 2009 at 10:36 pm

    Actually, if Nady is hurt, it would have been fortunate if Cash had traded him.

  35. Betsy April 14th, 2009 at 10:37 pm

    And the balloon has been punctured………god, we can’t even enjoy the game before this news has to come down. I hope X is ok, but it doesn’t sound good at all.

  36. MikeEff April 14th, 2009 at 10:37 pm

    dice K is getting tattooed by the A’s…

    lets just hope that Nady is OK

  37. Russell NY April 14th, 2009 at 10:37 pm

    3-2 Boston now.

  38. Al from BK April 14th, 2009 at 10:38 pm

    I guess Swish is everyday RF? Gard/Melk in LF and CF with Damon mixed in? Hopefully we are only 2 weeks away from an A-Rod.

  39. Phil April 14th, 2009 at 10:38 pm

    I hope he feels better soon. He’ll be a righty DH if he doesn’t. I hope Damon can get back tomorrow.

  40. jennifer April 14th, 2009 at 10:38 pm

    Betsy- He is just hoping it is scar tissue breaking up. That would be the best news right now.

  41. Russell NY April 14th, 2009 at 10:38 pm

    Brandon – me too. You put Milledge in RF, Gardner in CF, Damon in LF and keep Swisher in the role he is in.

  42. Rebecca-Optimist Prime...Staying to Write the Story April 14th, 2009 at 10:39 pm

    Wow, Nady hasn’t even had his MRI yet, we don’t know how bad he’s hurt.

    We have so much depth, though, that while I wish for Nady to get healthy ASAP, I’m not freaking out.

    I mean, we have scored 4+ runs every game, and we’ve done that WITHOUT A-Rod.

  43. Freddy K April 14th, 2009 at 10:39 pm

    Great, now our only depth is Melky

  44. jennifer April 14th, 2009 at 10:40 pm

    6 ip 8 hits 4 runs for Pavano.

  45. Swisher Brandon (I LOVE ME SOME ME !) April 14th, 2009 at 10:40 pm

    Cashman get on it rob Lastings from Washington, you can do it !

  46. Free Booze April 14th, 2009 at 10:40 pm

    Matsui in the OF? Have you seen him try to run the bases? This really hurts our bench but at least we have good depth there. Melk will be getting more consistent playing time if this is anything serious.

  47. you gotta have faith (bronx zoo 2009) April 14th, 2009 at 10:40 pm

    first lets figure out how serious this is before you start getting into panic mode and discussing trades, sheesh

    great game tonight, everyone who was moaning and whining about gardner being in the lineup look stupid right now.

  60. Yank1 April 14th, 2009 at 10:44 pm

    Guys… we’re fine with a Damon-Gardner-Swisher OF

    This kills our depth though, and when a guy needs a rest, the lineup is going to be ugly. But we’re fine for now. Hope Nady recovers soon though

    According to Gammons, Frodo Baggins Pedroia hasn’t been able to hit this week due to a local person in his hometown making death threats against his family.

    Also according to Gammons, Pedroia also prefers boxer-briefs.

    injuries are going to happen. that’s why you have depth. the yankees won without damon tonight . they can win without nady if it comes to that, but it’s to soon to panic.

    something may have just come loose and is in a bad spot. there’s lots of possibilities.

    He’s hitting .480 and second in the IL in walks. He’s better and more worthy of a spot on the 40 than most of the crap that’s available. And you rush hitters and take your time with pitchers.

    Just got in. Hope nothing’s seriously wrong with Nady.

    What a game, huh? Tim Montemayor was hating on the Yankees. Saying Ransom’s (huh?) going to make an error and AJ would lose the game 3-2. He said that Girardi possibly had no business managing the majors. And that they would be stupid to send AJ back out for the 8th. Well, glad he was wrong on every account. He did say, “what do I know?” when AJ sat down the order in the bottom of the 8th.

    Was the game thread happy hour? Thoughts on the game?

  98. Swisher Brandon (I LOVE ME SOME ME !) April 14th, 2009 at 10:58 pm

    AJ Burnett had a curveball that dropped 11.5 inches on Navarro, biggest drop on a pitch by any pitcher this season.

  99. pat April 14th, 2009 at 10:58 pm

    I just saw Abreu dive into the wall to make a catch. :shock:

    Did he not like the blue color of the wall in the Bronx?

  100. Rebecca-Optimist Prime...Staying to Write the Story April 14th, 2009 at 10:58 pm

    Got this from my brother:

    “burnett had a 11.6 inch drop off in his curveball tonight in his strikeout against navarro”

  101. GreenBeret7 April 14th, 2009 at 10:58 pm

    In Charleston, Brett Marshall was outstanding. 6 innings, 2 hits 1 run (unearned), 2 walks, 1 strikeout, 1 WP, 1 Hit batter.

    Venditte was outstanding in relief to get the win. 2 innings, 1 hit, 0 runs, 0 walks 5 strikeouts.

    Bad news, Angelini was 0-4 with 2 strikeouts and another error at shortstop (5th of the year). 2 left handed bats (one a switch hitter), 5 right handed bats.

  102. kill.schill(ing) April 14th, 2009 at 10:58 pm

    Yep, Buddah, he has been. And did you see Abreu’s catch in RF robbing a home run.

    Once Abreu’s price dropped, I thought Cashman was foolish not to re-sign him for a year and/or to think Nady was a commesurate replacement.

    Ironically, Abreu would have cost less than Nady.

    Aww man this isnt good…i know people are saying, “yes!, we have swisher!”. but i would rather have nady and swish, then nady and melk/gardner..I say Bring up Ajax for a shot, if this injury lingers on and has to be put on the DL.

  109. Jeter in LF April 14th, 2009 at 11:02 pm

    …Thoughts on the game?
    ___

    My primary take is that this team has guts. They shook off any letdown from AJ losing his no hitter and came right back and scored a run, and then tacked on more runs later while not giving the Rays any more.

    Gardner broke out, Jeter was great at the bat, and Swish was tough. Throw at his head and he’ll take you deep.

    And btw, Pena > Ransom

  110. Betsy April 14th, 2009 at 11:03 pm

    I’m so on cloud 9 now that I’m going to stay positive about Nady – it could be scar tissue from his TJ surgery (but wasn’t that in 2001)? In any case, I don’t feel like getting upset just now………it sucks, though.

  111. stuart April 14th, 2009 at 11:04 pm

    Abreu play was OK he was 5 feet from the wall. Ajax played LF tonight and is on fire so far.

    The yanks have plenty of depth.. Melancon on fire in SWB.

    The Yanks are loaded guys.. should be 5 and 3(the Joba start) but on 4 and 4 all on the road without Arod and Tex missed 3 game already. Gardner playing just fine…..

    The best news is Jorge is playing well and getting some games of behind the plate…Looking good….

  115. Al from BK April 14th, 2009 at 11:06 pm

    Halladay is a great pitcher sadly he spent all of his career in Toronto.

  116. Russell NY April 14th, 2009 at 11:07 pm

    My fantasy team so far:

    Lackey – DL
    Webb – DL
    Soto – near DL
    Ichiro – DL
    Carpenter – DL

    God what a terrible start for me!

    And I have Haren who dominates but his team cant score runs so he loses and I lose a ton of points

  117. Betsy April 14th, 2009 at 11:07 pm

    M, Jeter in LF is right – the team fights.

    AJ was brilliant tonight – he’s got game, he really does. To walk into the Rays turf and just dominate them, after an embarrassing loss the night before where the pen was decimated, shows what he is made of. I know that will make you happy!

    Aww man this isnt good…i know people are saying, “yes!, we have swisher!”. but i would rather have nady and swish, then nady and melk/gardner..I say Bring up Ajax for a shot, if this injury lingers on and has to be put on the DL.
    ==================================================
    AJax is getting nowhere near the Bronx until September. He’s just turned a corner. They are not going to risk ruining his progress by asking him to jump yet another level up here.

    Hey, thanks for the advice, Jeter in LF. The draft for my fantasy team is Sat. Now I know who to pick :)

  120. m April 14th, 2009 at 11:09 pm

    Thanks guys. In the sac fly at-bat in the 8th, Montemayor (bitter Cubs fan) intimated that there were 2 pitches that should’ve been called strike 3. What do you guys think? Was the ump generous? I’m a little doubtful myself about an ump giving us anything!

  121. Boston Dave April 14th, 2009 at 11:10 pm

    Daisuke was seen grabbing his hip early in the 1st inning.

    Who knows?

    Of course their rotation was voted the deepest by ESPN so they can afford an injury.

  122. Patrick April 14th, 2009 at 11:11 pm

    This is really bad news and if the injury is serious then I feel really bad for Nady. He is a free agent after this year and with another good season he could have cashed in big time. I am hoping for the best, Nady is important to the team.

  123. m April 14th, 2009 at 11:12 pm

    Oops. That was supposed to say Tex’s at-bat.

    Daisuke out early. Chris Carpenter taken out early even though he gave up nothing.

    Knock on wood guys, we need all our starters to stay healthy.

  124. GreenBeret7 April 14th, 2009 at 11:12 pm

    They aren’t going to start another rookie in the outfield and they aren’t bringing Jackson up to sit on the bench.

    April 14th, 2009 at 10:58 pm
    Yep, Buddah, he has been. And did you see Abreu’s catch in RF robbing a home run.
    Once Abreu’s price dropped, I thought Cashman was foolish not to re-sign him for a year and/or to think Nady was a commesurate replacement.
    Ironically, Abreu would have cost less than Nady.
    =================================================
    No, but I saw him make a nice catch in left vs. Boston. (They had Matthews playing RF that night).

    Cashman wanted us to get younger and more athletic (although I don’t know how Nady qualifies for the latter; and he’s got no arm at all out there). Also, people kept harping on his “decline”. All I know is, the guy’s a guarantee to work the count to 3-and-2.

  126. Joe Mama April 14th, 2009 at 11:14 pm

    Losing Nady would be terrible. Swisher is on fire right now but I don’t see him putting up these numbers all year. I hope it’s just scar tissue and nothing more serious

  127. stuart April 14th, 2009 at 11:14 pm

    Nady is important to the team but they absolutely can win without him.. WIth Arod back they are loaded…

    Matsui DH…damon, gardner, and swisher in the OF is not great but good. the difference is there rotation is very very good… they have a great rotation and hughes in reserves in case of an injury..if any of the pen arms fail they have legit options below; melancon, robertson, and others..

    THEY ARE LOADED SPORTS FANS….

  128. Boston Dave April 14th, 2009 at 11:15 pm

    GB7,

    you’ll never be able to quell all the calls for AJax to be rushed to the majors. some people don’t really understand or haven’t been reading your posts.

  129. stuart April 14th, 2009 at 11:15 pm

    And yes fail sorry for Nady but the guy is making over $3 mill. this year…Not bad for playing a game….

    He will get a nice contract next yr. but nothing earthshattering he is not a game changer….

  130. Boston Dave April 14th, 2009 at 11:16 pm

    “Ironically, Abreu would have cost less than Nady.”

    You are assuming Abreu would have gone back to the Yanks at the same discount that he gave the Angels.

    That’s a big assumption IMO.

  131. m April 14th, 2009 at 11:17 pm

    5/9 of the Sox lineup is under the Mendoza line. Well, technically, Pedroia’s right on the line, but that’s after 1/2 so far in the game. There’s an article on mlb.com saying they’re confident they’re going to break out soon.

  132. Vader April 14th, 2009 at 11:17 pm

    Boston Dave…and nobody remembers how Phil could have used a full season in AAA either.

  133. hardwired April 14th, 2009 at 11:17 pm

    How on Earth can the Yanks ever replace a .280 hitter w/occasional pop?

    ————————————————————

    Unless they’re in dire straits and can’t make a reasonable trade, the worst mistake would be bringing Jackson up too soon. The pitchers will eat him alive with breaking pitches.

  135. Joe Mama April 14th, 2009 at 11:18 pm

    Baltimore vs texas game is getting close
    texas down by 3 bases loaded nobody out

  136. Boston Dave April 14th, 2009 at 11:19 pm

    “How on Earth can the Yanks ever replace a .280 hitter w/occasional pop?”

    It’s a question of depth and flexibility.

    It wouldn’t be a crippling injury if it’s serious but that doesn’t mean he’s not an important part of the team.

  137. Giuseppe Franco April 14th, 2009 at 11:19 pm

    Giusseppe Franco,

    He’s hitting .480 and second in the IL in walks. He’s better and more worthy of a spot on the 40 than most of the crap that’s available. And you rush hitters and take your time with pitchers.

    —————

    He’s been in Triple-A for just over a week. Talk about a small sample.

    I’m excited over this kid too. But he’s not ready to hit regularly against major league pitchers.

    He needs a full season of Triple-A ball. They are not going to rush this kid.

  138. Russell NY April 14th, 2009 at 11:20 pm

    “Of course their rotation was voted the deepest by ESPN so they can afford an injury.”

    I disagree though. With Smoltz not back for a little while, Penny an injury risk, and Beckett out for 6 games I don’t know if the Sox can afford an injury to DiceK.

    That would leave them with: Lester, Penny, Bucholz, Masterson, Wakefield.

    Take into consideration they have no Manny to come up with clutch hit after clutch hit.

  139. Patrick April 14th, 2009 at 11:20 pm

    All of you knocking Nady are stupid. Even if you have Swisher starting in RF you lose a lot of depth if Nady is gone. I like how Girardi has been moving Swisher around and letting Nady DH when Matsui needs a day off. Both of these guys are useful players.

    The Yanks can win without Nady but it will be more difficult than winning with him.

  140. pat April 14th, 2009 at 11:20 pm

    Youk complaining that Giambi pushed him off 1B to double him off.

    Jason’s not a dirty player, just clumsy. :smile:

  141. MikeEff April 14th, 2009 at 11:21 pm

    Carpenter went on the DL?

  142. m April 14th, 2009 at 11:21 pm

    Maybe Giambi’s drunk?

    It’s okay to feel for someone (regardless of how big their wallets are), steep pockets don’t make people immune to the disappointments and set backs of life.

    I hope Nady is okay.

  144. Vader April 14th, 2009 at 11:22 pm

    Is is me or does it seem that most media/journalist types, went to school in Boston and are now transplanted Sawx fans that are trying to recapture their youth.

  145. Russell NY April 14th, 2009 at 11:22 pm

    I’m starting to like this MLB Network. I like how they show you all games around the league at the end of the games.

  146. miggs April 14th, 2009 at 11:22 pm

    Anyone know if Dice -K was taken out due to ineffectiveness or injury?

    He only pitched one inning then Masterson came in.

  147. pat April 14th, 2009 at 11:23 pm

    Yankees left 15 on base tonight. They need to work on that this year.

  148. Boston Dave April 14th, 2009 at 11:23 pm

    Russell NY,

    I agree. I was being facetious.

    The Sox do have some depth in the rotation thanks to Buchholz but I personally don’t think Penny is going to survive and and injury to the rotation still hurts.

  149. m April 14th, 2009 at 11:23 pm

    no, Carpenter exited in the fourth inning in a game he was winning 3-0.

  150. Spiced Ham April 14th, 2009 at 11:24 pm

    FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF. Hope it’s nothing and he’s ok :(

  151. Boston Dave April 14th, 2009 at 11:25 pm

    miggs,

    I’m watching the game and didn’t hear them say anything.

    He did grab his hip early in the 1st.

    He was most likely pulled because his pitches looked awful. His velocity was down and he couldn’t control anything.

  152. Patrick April 14th, 2009 at 11:25 pm

    pat, They were facing one of the top pitchers in the league. Yeah they need to drive more runs in but come on, it was versus Garza.

  153. m April 14th, 2009 at 11:26 pm

    Someone here mentioned Daisuke grabbed at his hip? Jesse Litsch (Jays) to the DL with forearm issue.

  154. Boston Dave April 14th, 2009 at 11:27 pm

    If I didn’t know any better, I’d say the Red Sox were cursed so far.

    Last inning, a lazy fly ball was hit to Holliday but the wind knocked it down. Holliday had to come racing in the make a diving catch, which he may have actually dropped.

    He makes the catch and guns it to first to try and double up Youkilis. Youk gets back just in time but then trips over his own feet and falls off the bag. Giambino tags him for the out.

    Youk looked up and kinda complained that Giambi tripped him but it was as clear as day that he just fell on his own.

  155. Boston Dave April 14th, 2009 at 11:28 pm

    m,

    he kinda grabbed his hip but I didn’t see any grimace and the trainers didn’t come out.

    his pitches looked off tonight and that’s hard to say about Daisuke because his pitches are always all over the place.

    his fastball was sitting around 88-89 and he had no control of it… walking guys on 4 pitches or throwing it right down the middle.

  156. Russell NY April 14th, 2009 at 11:30 pm

    Is it just a rumor Boston Dave or are they really discussing a DiceK injury? Will need to know for fantasy lol

  157. miggs April 14th, 2009 at 11:32 pm

    Just seems like even if he let up 5 runs in the first they would let him try to continue. No one wants to have to pitch 8 innings out of the pen unless its absolutely necessary.

  158. Swisher Brandon (I LOVE ME SOME ME !) April 14th, 2009 at 11:32 pm

    ESPN dissed Brett Gardner they keep showing Jeter’s hit as the clutch hit it was Gardner’s hit that won us this game, that plus Swish and AJ’s pitching. Jete just made sure AJ and Mo didn’t have to pitch.

  159. Late Night with WHO?? April 14th, 2009 at 11:33 pm

    If it’s serious then we may be in trouble b/c Matsui hasn’t been hitting anything this season and now he’ll have to play everyday unless we call up a J-Rod or Duncan(both of whom are not on the 40)

  160. pat April 14th, 2009 at 11:34 pm

    Patrick

    Understood Garza pitched well tonight but they have the same issue against guys who don’t pitch as well.

    Looking a little better this year so far but innings like the first tonight are too common.

  161. br April 14th, 2009 at 11:36 pm

  162. PittsburghYankeeFan April 14th, 2009 at 11:36 pm

    Hope X is OK. If he goes down, makes you wonder a bit about last year’s trade with the Pirates.

    Great win tonight. Gritty performance after getting shellacked last night.

    I think Bruney has won himself the 8th inning setup role. Marte and for now Coke are the situational lefties only.

    Veras, Ramierez, Alabaldejo are all just arms who will be interchanged during the season for Robertson, Claggett, Jackson, Melancon (after May 15), etc.

  169. KO April 14th, 2009 at 11:40 pm

    Who knew getting Swisher would be so important for the Yanks? The guy is getting more valuable by the second and this news about Nady is only adding to Nick’s worth. If the Nady injury is serious, it definitely cuts down on their depth but it would be far from a mortal blow. To be entirely honest, aside from one big hot streak last season the guy has been pretty average since we got him. He’s looked mediocre at the plate, doesn’t have a good eye in general, and is a borderline liability in the outfield. Plus he is painfully slow. Personally I will not miss Nady after ’09. There is no chance they resign him

  170. pat April 14th, 2009 at 11:40 pm

    From Newsday:
    “Damon……is battling a respiratory infection, which has been made worse by a lack of sleep as his mom, Yome, was hospitalized with a lung infection and a cyst on her lung on Saturday. She was released today though and is doing much better.”

    Get well soon Johnny and Mommy Damon.

  171. KO April 14th, 2009 at 11:43 pm

    by the way did anyone see that Abreu catch tonight where he sort of jumped up against the wall? There is no chance in hell he even ATTEMPTS to make that catch w the Yanks. When he had our uniform on it was like he thought the fence was made out of electrified barb wire.

  172. m April 14th, 2009 at 11:44 pm

    KO,

    I’m going to toot my own horn here. While I could never have predicted Swish would be pitching and playing this well, I did say at the time is that he was a great pickup. Contact hitter, good on-base guy, and we would soon learn, versatile.

    Strain in left ribcage. Swinging in his last at-bat. Can you imagine if Johan Santana got hurt swinging the bat? They’d implement the DH in the NL.

  173. m April 14th, 2009 at 11:45 pm

    As Big Papi goes 0-3 so far tonight bringing his average to a stellar .185 on the year, it brings me great pleasure to notice that FIVE of Boston’s regulars are batting under .200 so far this year.

    Dice K’s era stands at a staggering 12.79, to go along with Okajima’s 13.50 era and lester’s 9.00 era.

  175. Backbench April 14th, 2009 at 11:50 pm

    Really like this RS starting rotation.

    Lester has enrolled in the IPK School of Public Relations.

    “I’m sure you guys are getting tired of me saying this, but I don’t think I pitched as bad as the line score says,” Lester said.

  176. miggs April 14th, 2009 at 11:50 pm

    Watching the Yankees rerplay on YES and just saw this across the bottom of the screen…

    “Dice K leaves game with apparent hip injury after 1st inning.”

    Never want to wish harm on anybody but it wouldn’t be terrible if he missed a few starts.

  177. Al from BK April 14th, 2009 at 11:51 pm

    Assuming A-Rod is back in 2 weeks and Nady isn’t here is the line-up:

    Jeter-SS
    Damon-LF
    Tex-1B
    A-Rod-3B
    Matsui-DH
    Swisher-RF
    Cano-2B

  180. m April 14th, 2009 at 11:54 pm

    Lester’s correct, he didn’t pitch that badly. But jeez. Bite the bullet once in a while.

    No celebration yet, Boston cuts the lead to 1.

  181. Boston Dave April 14th, 2009 at 11:55 pm

    Russell NY,

    No clue on a Daisuke injury. It was not being discussed.

    I just saw him grab his hip and his pitching was horrible. He had no velocity and couldn’t locate at all.

  182. Boston Dave April 14th, 2009 at 11:55 pm

    they were talking more about the WBC and that maybe Daisuke was tired from that

  183. Boston Dave April 14th, 2009 at 11:56 pm

    Giambi has made two really nice plays at 1st to scoop throws and save runs.

    where was that when he was in NY???

  184. tampayank April 14th, 2009 at 11:56 pm

    Hopefully it’s not serious for X but the Yanks can lose him and be ok, A-ROD may be back in a few weeks so hopefully all goes well and it’s not a season ending injury for X. I was at the game tonight, AJ really stepped it up, got nervous after 6 innings, had the feeling of a possible no hitter so was a bit crushed when Crawford got that first hit but great outing by AJ to save the beat up bullpen & Swish is just on fire right now!

  185. m April 14th, 2009 at 11:57 pm

    Yikes 5-5. Eveland @ 108 pitches through 4.2 innings.

  186. vin April 14th, 2009 at 11:57 pm

    Al,

    Posada needs to hit higher than 8th.

    Jeter
    Damon
    Tex
    Alex
    Posada
    Matsui
    Swisher
    Cano
    Gardner

    I can live with two lefties at the end of the lineup… especially if that means a guy with decent speed hits in front of Gardner. No point in slowing down our fastest baserunner.

  187. tampayank April 14th, 2009 at 11:57 pm

    another reason not to have the WBC in March

  188. DT April 14th, 2009 at 11:58 pm

    Giambi actually has decent hands and can scoop throws.

    His problem was his throwing arm and lack of range.

  189. Boston Dave April 14th, 2009 at 11:59 pm

    “but to give up Tabata for what they got back…hmmmmm.”

    ————-

    The shenanigans that went on with Tabata recently have only enforced the reasons for trading him away.

    If he was still in NY he’d have been eaten alive even if he had nothing to do with his wife’s allegations.

    You know what? Sometimes a players character matters. In this case, it did.

  190. eric in queens April 15th, 2009 at 12:01 am

  191. pat April 15th, 2009 at 12:01 am

    Girardi said that Matsui is not an outfield option even in an emergency. Let’s hope Alex’s hip rehab works out better than Hideki’s knees.

  192. Boston Dave April 15th, 2009 at 12:01 am

    m,

    still, if Oakland wins this game, it’s bad news for the Sox (which is good news for everyone else).

    they look flat and even though they have 5 runs, in the past these were games where they would have eaten Oakland alive.

    It’s early and the Sox will win their share of games but there are more questions with that team now than there were a week ago.

  193. Boston Dave April 15th, 2009 at 12:02 am

    though Masterson looks pretty good

  194. vin April 15th, 2009 at 12:04 am

    We’ll see what news comes out tomorrow on Nady… but if he’s out for an extended period of time, I think Cashman makes a trade for an OF. The minor league options just aren’t good enough.

  195. m April 15th, 2009 at 12:05 am

    pat,

    Didn’t Dr. Phillpon swear on his mother’s life that everything was a-ok?

    Boston Dave,

    I’m trying to decide which child I’m willing to give up for an Oakland win tonight.

  196. Boston Dave April 15th, 2009 at 12:05 am

    I believe this a career high in pitches for Masterson as a reliever with a whopping 60 (I don’t believe they really stretched him out in the spring for this many pitches)

    The Sox are going through what hte Yanks did yesterday with their pen.

    If they don’t get an AJ like performance from Wakefield tomorrow, their pen is going to get worn out a bit.

  197. A.l.i.a.s. April 15th, 2009 at 12:06 am

    F*ck you J*son Bay!

    Is there a more clutch hitter than J*son Bay?

  198. Boston Dave April 15th, 2009 at 12:08 am

    lol m,

    If Oakland even takes the series I’ll be happy.

    The Sox get back home and have 4 games against the suddenly hot Baltimore offense.

    If they wear out their pen in this series, they could be in real trouble when Baltimore gets to town.

    It may not be realized until later in the season (and this is premature but wishful thinking) but if their pen needs to be used often early on they could be toast by August.

  199. AeroFANatic April 15th, 2009 at 12:08 am

    Get ready for those Melky/Kennedy for Cameron and cash rumors again!

  200. miggs April 15th, 2009 at 12:09 am

    No way do I see Cashman making a trade. Why would you make a trade?

    Damon, Gardner, Swisher with Melky as the 4th. You also have Matsui.

    You guys are not going to want to hear this, but if Nady (heaven forbid) is out for any significant amount of time, you won’t see any moves immediately. Cashman will start Swish in right, with Melky as the 4th OF. He’ll let the market develop and if you like our prospects, you better pray that Oakland plays well.

  212. vin April 15th, 2009 at 12:17 am

    “Damon, Gardner, Swisher with Melky as the 4th. You also have Matsui.”

    Have you been watching Matsui hobble on the bases? His days as an outfielder are done. Girardi would be better suited using Pena in a pinch than Matsui.

    Besides, my speculation was based on Nady missing significant time. This is the Yankees… they will make a move if it benefits the team. The last thing Cashman wants to do is let the final years of Posada, Mo and Jeter go to waste because he thinks Damon, Gardner/Melky, and Swisher might constitute a WS caliber outfield.

  213. miggs April 15th, 2009 at 12:19 am

    A’s 2 on 2 out against Delcarmen. Cabrera up.

  214. miggs April 15th, 2009 at 12:21 am

    Ok so you want to trade for a 5th OF?

    Seriously? Because if you want to trade for a starter then you’re saying Damon, Gardner, Swisher isn’t good enough. So one of them needs to sit. Makes no sense.

  215. DT April 15th, 2009 at 12:21 am

    If Nady is DL bound – it will be interesting to see what the Yanks do.

    The OF was crowded already (if Melky had options, he might not have made the team previously) – so bringing up an outfielder isn’t a necessity.

    Rodriguez and Duncan would require a 40 man roster move.
    Duncan makes more sense since he’s a righty, Rodriquez bats left – as does Miranda.

    “Seriously? Because if you want to trade for a starter then you’re saying Damon, Gardner, Swisher isn’t good enough. So one of them needs to sit. Makes no sense.”

    That IS what I’m saying. I think Cash would look to get a known commodity for either CF or RF, depending on who’s available and which guy falls off. You have more faith in Gardner/Melky than I do. I hope you’re right, but I just think this team would be better with reliable ML centerfielder.

    I’d love to see Gardner or Melky continue to hit, but I’d be more surprised if they do than if they don’t. Cashman wouldn’t make a trade for 5th OF (who would?), he would restructure the roster instead.

    Everytime I think Cashman will stand pat, he ends up making a move. We’ve seen him do it too many times (Justice, Abreu, Pudge).

  220. miggs April 15th, 2009 at 12:30 am

    Giambi has actually made quite a few nice plays so far in the game. I’ll let that one slide if they get out of the inning.

    2 on though

  225. miggs April 15th, 2009 at 12:33 am

    Vin you don’t need a reliable OF, that’s what I’m saying.

    They didn’t need a replacement for Gardner/Cabrera before, why would they now?

    Swisher is arguably better than nady so I don’t see your point here at all. There’s no sense making a move just to get someone “reliable”.

  226. Boston Dave April 15th, 2009 at 12:33 am

    tampa,

    that’s what m said. if they play well, they wont trade him.

    “Everytime I think Cashman will stand pat, he ends up making a move. We’ve seen him do it too many times (Justice, Abreu, Pudge).”

    Ok Cash traded for Abreu because Matsui AND Sheffield were out with long term injuries. They had no one.

    Pudge was acquired because they were playing Molina 5-6 times a week and he was a black hole in the lineup.

    These situations aren’t even in the same league.

  230. vin April 15th, 2009 at 12:39 am

    “They didn’t need a replacement for Gardner/Cabrera before, why would they now?”

    Here’s our fundamental impasse. I’ve always felt they did need a replacement. But if I had to, I could live with Cabrera/Melky being the 5th OF, but now the lack of depth has made them the 4th OF which is significant on a team with an achy LF, an unproven CF and a RF who may or may not have to make spot starts at 1B.

    I see your point, I just have the feeling that Cash will use this injury (if it ends up being serious) as an opportunity to bolster the OF. We don’t call him stealth for nothing.

  231. Swisher Brandon (I LOVE ME SOME ME !) April 15th, 2009 at 12:39 am

    ‘even if Nady is out, the Yankees have 4 OF and ARod coming back soon.

    Yup and no offense to Shelley but John Rodriguez would be my first choice.

  232. miggs April 15th, 2009 at 12:40 am

    Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if Nady is fine. Its not common for a player who went through TJ surgery to have a tear again in the same area. They use a stronger tendon to replace the one that tore and pitchers usually don’t have further problems in that area.

    Its one reason they went after Burnett so hard… he had TJ already. Players rarely need it twice, especially position players.

    Its probably the blog going overboard with anxiety. I bet he’s fine.

  233. tampa yankee from long island April 15th, 2009 at 12:41 am

    I agree with you Boston Dave, this is a very good and balanced ballteam…And for the first time they have depth…I was surprised that Berroa was sent down..But unlike many here calling for trading Swisher or Nady, there was several bloggers here responding to the trade talk by pointing out the need for a strong bench which has been lacking since 04……I think this is the deepest club across the board that we’ve had in the Bronx since 03

  236. Boston Dave April 15th, 2009 at 12:42 am

  239. myrtlebeachfan April 15th, 2009 at 12:43 am

    This may sound ridiculous, but now Melky can get some consistent playing time. Believe it or not, if Melky knows that he is going to be starting consistently, he will probably play a lot better. His mistakes and sloppy at-bats seem to be a result of his discouraging situation as our former starting CF.

    If we can put him consistently out on the field, maybe he can rebound from his difficult last season and early 2009.

    It wouldn’t hurt to DH Damon while Matsui rides the pine.

    Nady getting hurt is not a good thing, but it certainly doesn’t do too much damage to the team. Not having A-Rod is the big thing right now. Replacing Nady with full time Swish is nothing major. It actually makes us better.

    But for the sake of depth, let’s hope he’s ok.

    true facts,

    I’ll grant you that. People tend to get excited about guys and Melky was forgotten about.

    I don’t think Pete is saying that Duncan or Rodriguez would start over Melky though.

    Gardner earned the CF spot from Melky fair and square. If he struggles well into the season, they’d prob make a change. Until then, I think any suggestion that he can’t hack it is premature.

    He adds a presence on the bases that nobody else can provide. We better hope Gardner plays well enough.

  271. vin April 15th, 2009 at 1:09 am

    true facts,

    To me, Pete’s infatuation with Gardner started in spring training last year, when Girardi kept referring to him as a “very intriguing” player (or something to that effect). Pete then started to acknowledge what it is that Gardner does that makes him unique compared to Melky, and its continued from there. Some of the fans here took it to mean he would be our version of Ellsbury. Unfortunately, when he came up in the 1st half and struggled everyone’s hopes and dreams were crushed. His improvement during the second call-up rekindled our aspirations. Also, his performance this spring, coupled with our growing frustration of Melky, got everyone excited about a player who could provide something this team hasn’t had in awhile – Grittiness and Guttiness.

    That’s the short-form version of the story – I don’t have the energy to get into the Melkyisgod vs. Brettisgod story. We’ll save that for another day.

  278. Giuseppe Franco April 15th, 2009 at 1:21 am

    Very interesting piece regarding Mark Melancon.

    Believe it or not, he has even more bite on his curve ball than he did last season with some tweaks.

    I guess this explains his sharp increase in strikeouts so far.

    ———————

    Mark Melancon spent his first full professional season last year building up his arm strength, pitching more to location, and developing his changeup into another plus pitch. But now he’s made improvements to his out-pitch, and even though it’s just one week into the new season, it seems his game is coming together already.

    It wasn’t all that long ago that Mark Melancon posted a 7.69 ERA in six appearances for the Yankees in big league Spring Training and allowing nine hits in a little more than five innings.

    “I guess I didn’t put that much thought into Spring Training,” he said. “I felt I had an idea that I’d be in Scranton. Mainly I just wanted to get my arm going and get all of pitches to where they needed to be by the beginning of the season.

    “It wasn’t that I was stressing about how many runs or how many hits I gave up, although obviously every time you go out that’s your goal, for me it was just day by day getting closer to being ready for Opening Day.”

    Fast forward to the first week of the baseball season and Melancon has quickly righted the proverbial ship, tossing three straight scoreless relief appearances for the Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre Yankees and not allowing a hit until his third game.

    “I feel really good,” he said after picking up the win over Buffalo on Monday. “My curveball last year I didn’t think was as strong as it could be.

    “So in Spring Training, in the last few days of big league camp, Scotty Aldred – he’s always trying to help me in any way, shape, or form – the curveball was the main thing I was targeting.”

    “We decided to change grips a little bit. I went to a knuckle-curve and right away when I started throwing it there was more depth to it.

    “I just kept playing with it and working on it, and it’s really improved. It’s kind of what I had in college, so that’s been a big help for me so far.”

    He didn’t actually throw a knuckle-curveball in college, but he admits the break he has been getting on his new and improved curveball this season is similar to the one he had in college, as is its effectiveness as a strikeout weapon.

    “Anytime you have a solid out-pitch, strikeouts come with that,” Melancon said. “And good location – all of those things have to come together – first pitch strikes, and then a solid out-pitch. And then deception comes into play too. I think this curveball has really helped my strikeouts.”

    While he has piled up eleven strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings so far this season, Melancon says it’s not due to any designed plan but rather the culmination of the hard work he put in during Spring Training.

    “Even though I was throwing the knuckle-curve in Spring Training, I didn’t have a great feel for it,” he revealed. “It’s really funny, in the opening game against Lehigh Valley it just kind of showed up. It was almost surprising how good it was. Now I realize what I’ve done to make it like that.

    “It’s just a shorter, quicker arm, which is what Nardi [Contreras], Scotty [Aldred], and everybody has told me, but sometimes you just have to feel that and realize exactly what it is you’re doing to cause that to happen. It’s hit me. Anytime now I have that checkpoint; do I have that short, quick arm? Am I staying on-top?”

    Just like last year when he put his numbers on the back-burner so he could master his changeup, he once again put development at the forefront of his Spring Training goals this season over piling up statistics.

    The end result has been a much more effective out-pitch so far this season, taking his already plus curveball to an entirely different level.

    “I would say so,” he opined. “Another thing that I’m starting to catch on to better than I had [last year] is getting a feel for hitters during at-bats and knowing what to go to next as the at-bat goes along.”

    Posting less than a strikeout per inning last season had some pundits questioning whether or not he had closer-stuff, but Melancon feels he can be the same pitcher he has been thus far this season in the big leagues someday.

    “It’s still me pitching out there. It’s not like I’m having an out-of-body experience or anything. Just because my strikeouts have gone up in the last three games, it’s not like I can go celebrate.

    “I think I’ve found something with the curveball, but I still have to go out, compete, and I realize these [hitters] are putting in a day’s work just like I am, so I can’t lose concentration,” he concluded.

    Sox pen is at 202 pitches and counting…

  292. Boston Dave April 15th, 2009 at 2:17 am

    sorry, 160 and counting

  293. PAT M April 15th, 2009 at 2:21 am

    Bo Knows, Just think that there was large contigent here that wanted Derek Lowe over AJ….He’s going to be a 20 game winner and a Cy Young contender…….Love that arm

  294. Swisher Brandon (I LOVE ME SOME ME !) April 15th, 2009 at 2:30 am

    ‘Brandon, when did you become a narcissist?’

    A quarter to nine :lol:

  295. Bo knows April 15th, 2009 at 2:32 am

    Well I was strongly in the AJ camp. Don’t like the length of the contract, but you pays your money –. I’m impressed by his maturing to this new level. As I said even last year he would have crumbled. I suspect Molina had something to do with it, great catcher. At one time he called for 4 curveballs in a row and then the high heat. Or that Langoria at bat, classics.

    Lowe would be toast with the Yankees, that left side defense would mortalize him.

  296. Boston Dave April 15th, 2009 at 2:33 am

    A’s win!!

    Travis the Buck stops here!

    Boston pen throws more than 180 pitches and they lose.

  297. RalphieD April 15th, 2009 at 2:33 am

    good job A’s

  298. Bo knows April 15th, 2009 at 2:36 am

    Boston loses, Okay now it’s pumpkin time.

  299. Jay April 15th, 2009 at 2:45 am

    Joe Mama,

    What did you say MLB Extra Innings showed Bruney’s pitches as clocking in at?

    P.S. I rewatched the My9 coverage (by rewinding my DVR). And the fastest speed shown for any Bruney pitch according to them was 92 — with two or three clocking in at 91 and one at 90, as I recall.

    In the game thread, Ro-bin-son (jonR) says that the YES speeds shown have been funky — with some fastballs being clocked at 60, so he wouldn’t be surprised if the My9 radars were iffy, too.

    That theory would seem to be bolstered, too, by the way that the Tampa Bay hitters were being blown away. Not what you expect from a 91-92 mph fastball.

    But again, what exactly did the MLB Extra Innings gun suggest for Bruney’s pitch speeds?

  300. Joe Mama April 15th, 2009 at 2:52 am

    Jay
    he threw 9 fastballs 6 were at 95 2 were 94 and one at 93.
    you can check out gameday too, they show pitch speeds

  301. Giuseppe Franco April 15th, 2009 at 2:53 am

    Bruney was hitting 95 MPH on the gun consistently according to GameDay.

  302. G. Love April 15th, 2009 at 2:56 am

    Just want to say something and this is directed purely at raymagnetic and that bodi-whatever poster who felt it okay to call posters in here who criticize Cano and Melky “racist”.

    You two are absolute complete morons. Morons. MORONS.

    I’m quite certain that “racist” remark was intended for me and other posters because I had the audacity to post what a great change of chemistry Swisher has brought to the club.

    You two MORONS are the racists because you are threatened by people who post in here who praise Swisher and Gardner thinking we do so because we’re racist.

    My favorite player on the Yankees is Mo. My other favorite Yankees have been Bernie, Reggie, Tino and Posada at times.

    You know why I love those players and don’t have the patience for a guy like Cano and Melky?

    Because those players play with heart.

    Cano was gutless last season.

    Gutless.

    The team had to bench him.

    I read Torre’s book and there’s a section dedicated to Cano about how he came to a game one day and told Bowa he wasn’t going to take ground balls and was just going to hit because that’s what he felt like doing.

    This was in his first season.

    Apparently that took Bowa and Torre by surprise and they made Cano take fielding practice even though he didn’t believe he needed it.

    That’s not the kind of player I love.

    I love Mo and by the way he’s latino if you two MORONS hadn’t noticed.

    Mo doesn’t make excuses. Mo doesn’t dog it. Mo doesn’t get distracted. Mo plays not for himself, but for the team.

    Cano and Melky have both been immature at times. Last season they both contributed greatly to sinking the season. It wasn’t all their fault, but they had a big role in the bottom of the order being a joke last season.

    You want to throw the racist card around you two MORONS, go somewhere else.

    I like Yankee players who give a damn about the team and not just themselves. That’s what I and many other fans spark to.

    You two are so transparent because you are so threatened when anyone on this board comes out in favor of someone that threatens Melky and/or Cano.

    You two should look in the mirror before you start calling out other fans in here.

    MORONS.

  303. Jay April 15th, 2009 at 3:11 am

    G. Love,

    I completely agree with you about Melky and Cano. Unless they’re threatened with being benched or sent down to the minors, they don’t do anything at all to improve, or even maintain, their game. If you watch Melky run the bases, he’s a spectator watching the play in the field when he turns the corner at 3rd base instead of running all out. And both of them eat garbage fast food instead of paying attention to what they put in their body.

    Then again, Jeter apparently sees nothing wrong with going out frequently during the season and partying — unlike Manny Ramirez who arrives at the batting cage every day before anyone else and stays there longer. But I guess that’s just Jeter being Jeter.

    I heard on one of the SNY shows last night that Jeter doesn’t even bother subscribing to MLB Extra Innings or even watching games when he’s home. I guess that would interfere with his night life.

  304. Jay April 15th, 2009 at 3:16 am

    Joe Mama and Giuseppe Franco,

    Thank you very much for those reports on Bruney’s pitch speed. That’s super news. I guess I’ll just stop caring what YES or My9 shows for pitch speed in the future.

    Giuseppe Franco,

    With apologies in advance for my ignorance, what is GameDay? And how do I access it?

  305. Al from BK April 15th, 2009 at 3:21 am

    I noticed that as well the YES gun must be 4-5 mph slow because it had AJ throwing 90-91 when he was obviously throwing gas, and Bruney was coming in at 92-93 when he was throwing high 90′s.

  306. SwisherRocks April 15th, 2009 at 3:22 am

    Best comment I’ve seen on here G. Love.

  307. IrishCarBomb April 15th, 2009 at 3:23 am

    I was watching the Rays feed, and AJ was getting up to 97 at some points.

  308. Jay April 15th, 2009 at 3:25 am

    IrishCarBomb,

    Thank you for that info on what the Rays feed showed for AJ’s speed. It’s much appreciated.

  309. Jay April 15th, 2009 at 3:26 am

    IrishCarBomb,

    Did you notice what pitch speed was for Bruney (on the Rays feed)?

  310. AROD fan April 15th, 2009 at 3:38 am

    Just want to say something and this is directed purely at raymagnetic and that bodi-whatever poster who felt it okay to call posters in here who criticize Cano and Melky “racist”.

    ==========================================

    he he, raymagnetic and bodi-whatever are the only intelligent people on this blog. the thought of a blog full of G Love’s and without any bodi-whatever/raymagnetic relief makes me laugh!!

  311. NYYanksFan April 15th, 2009 at 3:41 am

    G Love

    You raise some valid points but when you resort to name calling it lessens the intelligence of them.

  312. Jay April 15th, 2009 at 3:48 am

    Giuseppe Franco,

    Never mind. I found GameDay (using Google). It’s awesome! Wow. Thanks.

  313. Joe Mama April 15th, 2009 at 3:48 am

    During the game next to the scores there will be a baseball diamond just click on it and you will be taken to gameday live

    here is the link for today’s game
