Let’s have Scranton play Oakland

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Apr 19, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees are 11-0 after beating Rochester 7-2 today. That’s a franchise record for consecutive victories.

Shelley Duncan homered. He’s hitting .351 and has 13 RBI. Eric Duncan is at .364. Juan Miranda has 15 RBI. Angel Berroa is at .386. Jason Johnson went 6.1 innings for the win today. Good for him after all he has gone through.

Mark Melancon has appeared in five games. His line: 9 2 0 0 3 15.

    Repost from previous thread:

    The Yankees have three strikeout pitchers who shouldn’t be effected by the air current, one sinkerball/ground-ball king when right, and a lefty in Pettitte who neutralizes lefties.

    The Wind Currents will prove to be a huge advantage to the home team, especially when A Rod comes back. So don’t sweat it.

  2. Trevor April 19th, 2009 at 8:48 pm

    If the Yankees make the playoffs the bull-pen will be sick.
    Due to Joba innings limit he’ll probably be in the pen come October.
    Rivera
    Bruney
    Joba
    Melancon

    That’s a shut down type of pen.

  3. mist April 19th, 2009 at 8:49 pm

    I’m pretty sure A-Rod has watched the last few games and is pissed off that he is hurt. Watch him come back and start hitting dingers like no one’s business.

  4. Run Gardner Run April 19th, 2009 at 8:51 pm

    What time can we expect to hear if the game is PPD? I dont wanna get down there, just to turn right back around

  5. C April 19th, 2009 at 8:52 pm

    Is Melancon closing?

  6. Teixeiramvp (JobaCyYoung) April 19th, 2009 at 8:52 pm

    I’m confident Wang will fix himself, but I’m not confident it’ll be by next start, and unfortunately Girardi seems as if he wants to start him.
    That’s a gamble I wouldn’t take, but tell you what, if Wang does well Girardi looks pretty darn smart.

  7. Teixeiramvp (JobaCyYoung) April 19th, 2009 at 8:53 pm

    C-I want Melancon NOW! (Whining slightly)
    The Yankees are just teasing us withthis guy.

  8. Zooboy April 19th, 2009 at 8:53 pm

    The season could be setting up perfect for A-Rod; if he comes back and the team gets on a roll — and I think they are poised once thing settle down just a bit — he’s in a perfect position to put the nonsense of the Spring and his hip troubles behind him. Not to mention those those great big mirrors in the new clubhouse.

  9. Rob NY -- 2009 The Road to Redemption April 19th, 2009 at 8:53 pm

    I believe that the Scranton Red Baro… Yankees have Brett Tomko closing out their games.

  10. sunny615 April 19th, 2009 at 8:54 pm

    Hughes in, Wang long man?

  11. CENTRAL CT YANKEE April 19th, 2009 at 8:55 pm

    Went to the game today…..Man my seats Suck….

  12. jennifer "We want Swisher" April 19th, 2009 at 8:57 pm

    Central- Where are your seats?

  13. S.A.--It's a marathon, not a sprint. Calm down. April 19th, 2009 at 8:57 pm

    Mark Melancon has appeared in five games.
    His line: 9 2 0 0 3 15.

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

    Excellent.

    He will be here eventually. I can’t wait. :)

  14. Teixeiramvp (JobaCyYoung) April 19th, 2009 at 8:57 pm

    CENTRAL CT YANKEE-Where’d you sit?

  15. trisha - I am panic proof. April 19th, 2009 at 8:58 pm

    Jeff from NJ -

    paraphrase from previous thread: I’m not fond of football scores in baseball games. To me it’s no contest if you can slap the equivalent of a single and have it leave the park.

  16. tampayank April 19th, 2009 at 8:58 pm

    all this negativity is tiring, this ballpark cost $1.5 billion and it’s being treated like it was a complete waste…today’s score was somewhat of an average AL game, yesterday Wang was as bad as he was down at Tropicana, 2 parks, same result…..just speed up the demolition of Old Yankee Stadium, then see how things play out if they need adjustments

  17. PJH® April 19th, 2009 at 8:59 pm

    Whats the story with Austin Jackson? I see he is hitting .480 in Scranton, but only in 7 games. I also saw they played him in left field. Why only 7 games and why play your supposed centerfielder of the future out of that position? Is Austin hurt or what?

  18. Rob NY -- 2009 The Road to Redemption April 19th, 2009 at 8:59 pm

    CENTRAL CT YANKEE
    April 19th, 2009 at 8:55 pm
    Went to the game today…..Man my seats Suck….

    ————

    You didn’t happen to interfere with a play in the 7th inning did you?

  19. m April 19th, 2009 at 8:59 pm

    Scranton would give the Yankees a run for their money.

    Also from the last thread. Posada can still get at bats as the DH if Molina catches.

    Let’s hope Oakland packs up their struggling offense as well.

  20. CENTRAL CT YANKEE April 19th, 2009 at 9:00 pm

    Section 305, last section of the right field lower upper tier…..half of my view is through the fence….

  21. Teixeiramvp (JobaCyYoung) April 19th, 2009 at 9:01 pm

    tampayank-I agree. I think that overall it sounds like a beautiful ballpark.

  22. m April 19th, 2009 at 9:01 pm

    PJH,

    For the latest on Jackson, the best info is the Chad Jennings link on the right.

    Hit by pitch in elbow. Probably still swollen/bothering him.

  23. C April 19th, 2009 at 9:01 pm

    80%-90% chance of rain from 7-12 wow!

    our bullpen will be ok.. once Melancon comes up.. prolly sometime in May.. if he keeps this up

  26. trisha - I am panic proof. April 19th, 2009 at 9:02 pm

    Tex and Tampayank, neither of you has been there in person to witness any of this, have you?

    That asked I agree it is a beautiful park. Not devoid of some obvious flaws, but a beautiful park nonethless.

  27. CENTRAL CT YANKEE April 19th, 2009 at 9:03 pm

    Overall the Yankees Brass should be embarrassed with the empty lower leval…and need to rectify that fast…

  28. Teixeiramvp (JobaCyYoung) April 19th, 2009 at 9:04 pm

    When’s the game? Surely not ANOTHER day game?

  29. Teixeiramvp (JobaCyYoung) April 19th, 2009 at 9:05 pm

    trisha-Would it have made a difference? I saw the HR’s too, you know.

  30. Tom K April 19th, 2009 at 9:05 pm

    PJH –

    Jackson got hit in the elbow with a pitch a few games back. He hasn’t played since.

    He’s only played one of his seven games in left. Could have been to give him a rest – could have been because the organization wants him to play some left & right field to get him used to playing balls out there. It is possible that when he first comes up, he’ll be asked to play all of the outfield positions.

  31. jennifer "We want Swisher" April 19th, 2009 at 9:06 pm

    What is google chrome?

  32. Peter Abraham April 19th, 2009 at 9:07 pm

    I’m aware of the virus issue and our IT guys are looking into it. Sorry for any problems.

  33. Arliss April 19th, 2009 at 9:07 pm

    “Shelley Duncan homered. He’s hitting .351 and has 13 RBI. Eric Duncan is at .364. Juan Miranda has 15 RBI. Angel Berroa is at .386. Jason Johnson went 6.1 innings for the win today. Good for him after all he has gone through.

    Meanwhile, in New York, Cody Ransom is awful, Hideki Matsui is awful, Jose Veras is awful, and Damaso Marte is awful (but unfortunately cant go anywhere).

  34. Jeter in LF April 19th, 2009 at 9:07 pm

    Thanks, Peter.

  35. trisha - I am panic proof. April 19th, 2009 at 9:07 pm

    Tex, it may have made a difference because I saw them flying out, many of them, from the first row, and I am telling you that some of them weren’t hard-hit balls. We were kind of stunned to see them go out.

  36. jennifer "We want Swisher" April 19th, 2009 at 9:08 pm

    Pete- is there a virus issue on the site? Or is something just triggering virus scans?

  37. m April 19th, 2009 at 9:08 pm

    Jeter in LF,

    No joking matter, but the sites already infected our minds.

    Seriously, Pete. Lots of virus warning/error message pop-ups from a number of people.

  38. PJH® April 19th, 2009 at 9:08 pm

    m- Ah. Thank you. I never even thought to check with Jennings. I was just thinking (hoping actually) that he would be ready to take over centerfield at some point this season. After watching Gardner struggle to hit the ball out of the infield and him playing average defense at best, he is not a major league starter.

  39. Tom in N.J. April 19th, 2009 at 9:09 pm

    I no longer am getting the warning. Either my antivirus software just gave up and my comp now has malware, or the problem has been fixed.

  40. m April 19th, 2009 at 9:10 pm

    I don’t like that the pitchers appear to be skittish about throwing strikes. I’m sure they’ll adjust to the park, but it’s ridiculous that if you miss, you have to miss by a lot to avoid disaster.

  41. trisha - I am panic proof. April 19th, 2009 at 9:10 pm

    Well it appears that nobody will be able to talk negatively about our farm system without looking like a joke if they do!

  42. m April 19th, 2009 at 9:13 pm

    PJH,

    Ah. We’ll see if Austin Jackson can bring his game to the majors. As many prospects before have proven, it’s not always that easy.

  43. Matt NJ April 19th, 2009 at 9:15 pm

    I have an idea that could help solve some of the issues with the park. I think they should eliminate a few rows along the right field line including those field level box seats in right field, and push the wall back and raise it. Those are obvious. To make up the lost in seats they should eliminate all of the legends seat that extend past the dugouts. There are obviously too many seats there anyway. They could install more regular field seats and offer them at a fair price. As far as Monument park goes, Im not sure if my idea would work but would it be possible to move one of the bullpens under the sports bar and install monument park in the former bullpen. Also is it just me or is the flag in left field too small? It seems to be hidden in the corner and dwarfed by the other features of the park. These all seem to be fixable problems its frustrating however to hear the yankees rebuff the complaints as media hype like Randy Levine did the other day regarding the netting issues with the camera angles.

  44. Rebecca-Optimist Prime...Staying to Write the Story April 19th, 2009 at 9:20 pm

    I haven’t gotten any virus warning, but then again I use a Mac

  45. John April 19th, 2009 at 9:21 pm

    The game isin’t getting played tomorrow

    Thursday is a mutual off-day. Or they could do a day/night Tues or Weds.

    Oakland also comes back to the stadium in July… maybe a doubleheader one of those days.

  46. Stephen April 19th, 2009 at 9:22 pm

    I don’t think they’ll ever push the fences back.

    The Yanks made a big deal about preserving OYS’s dimensions, and the link to Babe Ruth’s short porch is one they probably wouldn’t forsake.

  47. tampayank April 19th, 2009 at 9:22 pm

    trisha haven’t been there yet, might try to get up there July or August….I’ve seen most games in HD and there were a couple that from the sound, I agree, didn’t expect them to go out but Wang doesn’t help out the first sample of how this park plays…..

    And when is the old park supposed to be completely demolished and what’s holding them up? I’m really curious how the new park plays once that is done

  48. Tom K April 19th, 2009 at 9:23 pm

    m -

    I am not sure pitchers are going to be skittish about throwing strikes (and I wouldn’t say that Burnett was skittish today; his history suggests that he has games where his command just falls apart)

    No matter where you play, you have to throw quality strikes. Although right field is playing favorably to hitters right now, it’s also true that some of these pitches getting launched aren’t very good pitches either.

  49. Nome April 19th, 2009 at 9:23 pm

    So if tomorrow gets rained out, it screws up the rotation. We have to call up someone to pitch on Sunday Night.

  50. Tom in N.J. April 19th, 2009 at 9:26 pm

    M, you have a great point about about prospects. I always found it interesting that two of the most recent Yankee farm hands who’ve had success on the team are Cano and Wang-two players who weren’t highly thought of prospects.

  51. m April 19th, 2009 at 9:28 pm

    Tom K,

    Burnett’s control actually improved towards the end of the game. The umpire was definitely a problem today with his teacup strike zone.

    Even though Girardi told Burnett (as a strikeout/flyball pitcher) to not think about the park’s propensity to give up a lot of homeruns, I’m sure he was thinking about it after the solo homerun he gave up.

    I wasn’t really thinking about him per say. But we’re going to see a lot of walks, as pitchers try to avoid the middle of the plate.

  52. Forntoso April 19th, 2009 at 9:29 pm

    So John Kruk and Dave Winfield are now analyzing NHL playoff games.

    Does ESPN not have some emergency programming for when a game gets rained out?

  53. Rebecca-Optimist Prime...Staying to Write the Story April 19th, 2009 at 9:29 pm

    I’m sure the Yanks have already figured out what happens if tomorrow gets rained out. As much as we might not like it, it’s not as though Hughes has never pitched in the majors before…

  54. jennifer "We want Swisher" April 19th, 2009 at 9:30 pm

    We better hope if anything it is a misty rain by game time. The Yankees are in big trouble if they can’t skip over Wang for the Soxs series. There is no way they can allow him to pitch. The soxs will absolutely kill him.

  55. m April 19th, 2009 at 9:30 pm

    Oops. Not his control. But his breaking stuff improved.

  56. V Torch April 19th, 2009 at 9:31 pm

    It’s only natural that pitchers think about the dimensions of the park and try to pitch to counter them.

    You pitch differently in Philly and Colorado than you do San Francisco and San Diego.

  57. Tom in N.J. April 19th, 2009 at 9:32 pm

    Next Gammons will read “The Waste Land”

    “APRIL is the cruellest month…”

  58. PJH® April 19th, 2009 at 9:34 pm

    Is anyone else a bit worried about our outfield defense? I think its a disaster out there. It is probably the worst outfield defense in all of baseball.

    Johnny Damon has the weakest throwing arm ever. Period. He is also pretty shaky on flyballs out there and has clearly lost a step.

    Gardner is very fast, yes. But that does not give you the ability to track flyballs. He is just not a good centerfielder and does not cover much ground for being so fast. He often misplays or takes terrible routes to easy fly balls.

    Swisher might be the worst outfielder I have ever seen on the Yankees. He is slow and seems to have trouble trakcing flyballs.

    I think something has to change in the outfield. I think we need to start Melky in center and hope Jackson will be ready in August or make a trade.

    I think the outfield defense is a major problem and will hurt us over the long run. They need to do something about it.

  59. dan April 19th, 2009 at 9:35 pm

    They could decide to play a DH when Oakland comes back here in July.

    Not sure if OAK will give up their off-day on Thurs or agree to a DH on Tues or Weds.

  60. Tom K April 19th, 2009 at 9:35 pm

    m –

    Well, the same was true in the old place – right-handed pitchers needed to pitch in a way to keep left handed hitters from hooking the ball down the right-field line. So far in the new place, that line has been extended a bit into right-center, but the same philosophy for pitching still applies.

    I really don’t think pitchers are going to be concerned about throwing strikes in this ballpark.

  61. jennifer "We want Swisher" April 19th, 2009 at 9:37 pm

    * The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees 11-0 start is at least the best International League start of the past 30 years. The Columbus Clippers went 10-0 in 1979.
    * The best Triple-A start on record is 14-0 set by the 1903 Los Angeles Angels of the Pacific Coast League.
    * The best start in Major League Baseball history is 20-0 set in 1884 by the St. Louis Maroons of the short-lived Union Association.
    * The modern day Major League record is 13-0 shared by the 1982 Atlanta Braves and the 1987 Milwaukee Brewers.

  62. jennifer "We want Swisher" April 19th, 2009 at 9:38 pm

    hmmm I don’t know how that happened.

    *test.

  63. GreenBeret7 April 19th, 2009 at 9:39 pm

    The Yankee pitching staff had no problem with the night games against the Cubs and they can hit with any team in baseball. As has been stated often, quality pitches will reduce hits and homers. Burnett was the cause of the 2 homers today. He made two mistakes with fastballs, and a fastball hitting team hit them.

  64. jennifer "We want Swisher" April 19th, 2009 at 9:40 pm

    How is the pitching lined up for the Oakland series.

    Can’t wait to hear the reaction for the Big G. I suspect it will be lots of cheering.

  65. Uncle Ellsworth April 19th, 2009 at 9:40 pm

    Should they pitch Wang on Wednesday (if at all) He should be rested by then

  66. Rebecca-Optimist Prime...Staying to Write the Story April 19th, 2009 at 9:43 pm

    jennifer: Should be Andy, CC, Joba for the Yanks

  67. Uncle Ellsworth April 19th, 2009 at 9:43 pm

    watching Slumdog Millionaire
    a lot darker than I anticipated

  68. jennifer "We want Swisher" April 19th, 2009 at 9:44 pm

    uncle- i guess that is how i’d get around it. I’d rather have him pitch against the A’s than the soxs.

  69. trisha - I am panic proof. April 19th, 2009 at 9:44 pm

    No need to have opinions on anything here. Just write to G(od) B. God A is the one in heaven. Once he has made his pronouncement feel free to go on to another topic, because you know you are nothing short of stupid if your opinion differs from G(od) B’s.

    Just ask him.

    :lol:

  70. jennifer "We want Swisher" April 19th, 2009 at 9:46 pm

    thanks Rebecca, I haven’t figured out our rotation yet.

    Uncle- I saw that a while ago, wasn’t exactly what I expected.

    If you need a good movie to see Changeling with Angelina Jolie was very good.

  71. Giuseppe Franco April 19th, 2009 at 9:46 pm

    So if tomorrow gets rained out, it screws up the rotation. We have to call up someone to pitch on Sunday Night.

    ———–

    That won’t be a problem. They will make it up down the road.

    Teams prefer not to reschedule games until May or June because the weather will be warmer and they are more likely to fill up the place than any game in April – especially when school is out.

  72. trisha - I am panic proof. April 19th, 2009 at 9:48 pm

    That said, I think I will stay with what appears to be the majority opinion here and that is that there is something in the overall structure of the new Stadium that is helping to cause a proliferation of homers.

  73. Laura - Plug it in, change the world! April 19th, 2009 at 9:49 pm

    I’d be very surprised if they get tomorrow’s game in. Forecast calls for rain all day.

  74. m April 19th, 2009 at 9:51 pm

    trisha,

    I downplayed it at first, but there were a few homeruns that made you think, ‘hmmm’.

  75. trisha - I am panic proof. April 19th, 2009 at 9:52 pm

    And I’m also betting the very good farm that you are going to see a long man in the pen in the very near future.

  76. Uncle Ellsworth April 19th, 2009 at 9:52 pm

    Thanks Jennifer I’ll check it out – need tpo see gran Torino too – another Clint film

    Wang also may be better a little less rested

  77. jennifer "We want Swisher" April 19th, 2009 at 9:52 pm

    Ozzie the jerk!

  78. GreenBeret7 April 19th, 2009 at 9:53 pm

    I never said there weren’t some issues….but…anytime that many balls get that close to the walls, that’s bad pitching.

  79. trisha - I am panic proof. April 19th, 2009 at 9:53 pm

    mel, yes and yes.

    What’s especially distressing is to hear a member of the opposing team say that he thought he had hit a single and looked to see it flying out…

  80. jennifer "We want Swisher" April 19th, 2009 at 9:54 pm

    Uncle- I strongly dislike Jolie, but I thought she was brilliant in that movie.

    Also Gran Torino is very good, not for people easily offended. Some of it may be a little over the top. But it was good nonetheless.

  81. Dave21 April 19th, 2009 at 9:55 pm

    Yeah, Oakland isin’t actually an offensive juggernaut. Id start Wang against them. He’s pitched 2 innings in the past 10 days.

    Then push Joba/AJ/Andy to Fenway.

  82. Uncle Ellsworth April 19th, 2009 at 9:55 pm

    Jennifer
    don’t get me wrong I really like Slumdog M. – Just a little more real than I suspected

  83. trisha - I am panic proof. April 19th, 2009 at 9:55 pm

    The real difficult thing is to separate out the degree of bad pitching when you may have other things going on.

  84. Giuseppe Franco April 19th, 2009 at 9:55 pm

    I’d be very surprised if they get tomorrow’s game in. Forecast calls for rain all day.

    ———-

    Anyone who accurately predicts the weather 24 hours before it happens will be the first time.

    We’ve had a few amateur meteorologists who have predicted the exhibition opener against the Cubs, Opening Day against the O’s, and another game against the Royals were all likely to be rained out and they were all dead wrong.

    Wait 24 hours before we start predicting the weather for tomorrow’s game.

  85. trisha - I am panic proof. April 19th, 2009 at 9:56 pm

    Uncle – I thought Slumdog was so tremendous that I actually didn’t want to leave the movie theatre.

  86. JINT April 19th, 2009 at 9:57 pm

    “Well, I heard the same [stuff] on April 20, [2008], about me,” Guillen said. “He’s got to say what he’s got to say. He was talking about people he’s only known for two weeks. That’s hard to make that statement when you only know people for two weeks, but that’s Nick.

    “I’m not pretending to be the best manager, I never will. But I guarantee that I will manage a lot longer than he will play. That’s all I can say. And I got more friends in baseball than I have enemies.”

    LOL oh man.

  87. jennifer "We want Swisher" April 19th, 2009 at 9:59 pm

    now that dave mentioned the number of innings Wang has pitched in like 3 weeks, maybe it would be a good idea to bring him back sooner, as opposed to pushing him back more. Throw him back out there.

  88. Uncle Ellsworth April 19th, 2009 at 9:59 pm

    Jennifer
    I think someone here compared the Clint character in Gran Torino to GB7.

    GB please don’t put me on your list – again

  89. trisha - I am panic proof. April 19th, 2009 at 9:59 pm

    Speaking of don’t waste your time movies, I just finished watching the Natalie Holloway story. When it comes on again, unless you are really bored it isn’t worth the two hours.

  90. vtred April 19th, 2009 at 10:00 pm

    So what did Swisher do to get Ozzie to hate him so much?

  91. GreenBeret7 April 19th, 2009 at 10:01 pm

    They’d better find somebody that has a history of getting good batters out. Jason Johnson and Brett Tomko are not those pitchers. Johnson has had one winning season in his 12 year career…8-7 and one of the worst w-l records in history for a pitcher with 150 decisions. Not exactly a hard luck pitcher. Tomko isn’t much better. He’s about .30 runs better accumulated almost entirely in the NL.

  92. cano he didnt April 19th, 2009 at 10:01 pm

    wow guillen sounds more like a sore loser more than anything. a bit jealous girardi got the ” better” version of swisher, although im sure he will revert a little more to the stats he has had over the course of his career.

    Ozzie sounds like a bitter betty

  96. jennifer "We want Swisher" April 19th, 2009 at 10:03 pm

    Ozzie is a crazy man.

    What Swish said wasn’t an a slap in Ozzie’s face. Ozzie didn’t like Swisher, plain and simple.

    Not that it means a ton, but go look on youtube and see all the tribute videos to Swish, the fans loved him.

  97. m April 19th, 2009 at 10:06 pm

    Those comments by Ozzie are further proof that he’s crazy. Egomaniacal. Like Girardi & Ozzie are the only 2 managers Swish has played for? Like the Yankees are a bunch of cold fish and can’t accept a player after one or two weeks?

    Those comments by Ozzie are self-serving talking about how he has more friends than enemies in baseball. What’s he talking about?

    The blowup doll thing blew up all of Ozzie’s credibility.

  98. PJH® April 19th, 2009 at 10:06 pm

    I dont understnad all you people talking about a forecast. When has a forecast ever been right before. You should not get so worried about it. Just see how the weather is tomorrow at game time. Could be 65 and sunny for all we know.

  99. Ed - Swish is awesome! April 19th, 2009 at 10:06 pm

    are you people glad that our bullpen isn’t like the Nationals? they totally revamped their whole bullpen by DFAing and optioning. wow.

  100. jennifer "We want Swisher" April 19th, 2009 at 10:07 pm

    So he’s not standing up as straight, his knee isn’t coming up as high, hands not as close to body.

    He is a total mess. And even worse, he doesn’t see any difference between this year and last year.

  101. Jack April 19th, 2009 at 10:08 pm

    Pretty simple to see what happened

    Swisher was brought to CHI to play CF. He isn’t a good CF and was open about the fact that he wasn’t comfortable there. Ozzie perceived that as being selfish and not doing whatever the team asks him to. Ditto about batting leadoff. He isn’t good at it so Ozzie probably thought he wasn’t trying hard enough to make it work.

    He has a bad year and hits .219. He gets benched in a playoff chase and in the playoffs. Swisher reacts negatively. There were rumors that he was a “diva” and complained about playing time.

    The problem stems from Kenny Williams. He gave up a hell of a lot to get him, and brought him here for the wrong reasons.

  102. jennifer "We want Swisher" April 19th, 2009 at 10:08 pm

    m- I didn’t get that comment either. is he trying to say Swish hasn’t made friends throughout baseball?

  103. trisha - I am panic proof. April 19th, 2009 at 10:09 pm

    Poor Nats. They sure do have offense though.

    Ozzie is pretty nutty.

    If you all remember this, one of the guys on the other place where I post gives us updates on the minors. For whoever is interested, I’ll give his update every day, and I’ll try to put it on the game thread if there is a game.

    Here is what he wrote on the 17th of April:

    “Charleston burned Rome with a 17 hit barrage yesterday in a 7-2 win. Carmen Angelini was 2 for 5 and hot prospect Garrison Lassiter continues to rip the bean with a 3 for 5 day. Lassiter is currently batting .438 in 16 ABs. Ray Kruml continues to hit with a 2 for 4 day to raise his BA to .320 in 25 ABs and Brian Baisley went 4 for 5 to raise his BA to .370 in 27 ABs.

    Young D.J. Mitchell started the game for Charleston and continues his white hot start to the season with 6 innings of 1 run ball while walking none and striking out 8. Mitchell’s ERA currently sits at 0.75 in 12 innings of work.

    Tampa continues to hit poorly getting only 5 hits and no runs. Hot prospect Delin Betances had a so-so outing giving up 2 runs in 5 innings of work while giving up 8 hits and striking out 7.

    Marcos Vechionacci continues his abysmal start in Trenton going 0 for 3 and his BA now sits at .120 in 25 ABs. On the flipside Edwar Gonzalez continues to have a monster start goin 2 for 4 to raise his BA to .450 in 20 ABs.

    And the BIG STORY continues to be AAA Scranton who got their 8 win of the season 8-7 over Buffalo to keep them perfect on the season.

    As an added bonus Eric Duncan is actually hitting the ball too. Happy days!”

  104. jennifer "We want Swisher" April 19th, 2009 at 10:10 pm

    Jack- Good analysis. If a player doesn’t feel comfortable playing a certain position why is that perceived as being selfish? He knows what he can and can’t do.

    Just like with Mark. When Alex went down Mark flat out said you don’t want to see me there, I can’t do it. that isn’t being selfish that is being honest.

  105. m April 19th, 2009 at 10:11 pm

    jennifer,

    Let’s add “paranoia” to the list:

    1. megalomaniac
    2. delusional
    3. split personalities
    4. anger issues
    5. visions of grandeur
    6. paranoid

  106. you gotta have faith (right porch giveth and the right porch taketh away) April 19th, 2009 at 10:12 pm

    whatever, hopefully swish sees those comments and it motivates him even more to continue the hot streak he’s on.

    his q and a is actually really interesting. the best part is what he says about posada lol all is true that jeter is the captain but posada is the enforcer.

  107. Counts April 19th, 2009 at 10:13 pm

    The fact that Wang says he sees no different from last year and this year shows what some of us suspected all along— He doesn’t have high pitching IQ.

    Even on video tape, it’s difficult to see your own faults….ones that others can see. It may be only slight, but, others can see just how great the differences are. That doesn’t mean that Wang is in denial. He just can’t see the differences. Perhaps they should show the two tapes side by side or in different colors that are overlapping. sort of like split screening in the movies.

    GB7,
    I like you agree that many of the home runs are just a result of bad pitches. With that being said I have to respectfully disagree about burnetts pitches todday. As a former pitcher I would be very upset if I threw a 95 mph fastball high and inside with running action and a batter just turned on it and smacked it out. In my opinion that was simply a case of good hitting.

  121. jennifer "We want Swisher" April 19th, 2009 at 10:27 pm

    I don’t know the numbers, but every night watching mlb.tv for the days recaps it just seems like there is an explotion of runs scored and balls leaving the yards…..Wonder if Rawlings is stiching the balls a little tighter this year to minimize the post steriod effect….I mean the dinger that Jorge hit today just seemed that he didn’t square it up…..As if he hit it on the label area of the bat……

  124. carl April 19th, 2009 at 10:29 pm

    Ozzie and Swisher are both people with big personalities. Not shocking they didn’t get along real well.

    Michael Kay’s story about a player paying Swisher not to talk was funny. If $50 is the going rate for a bus ride, wonder what it will cost a Yankee for a cross country flight?

    Swish has quickly become an organization, fan and media favorite but he has a little Eddie Haskell in him. :wink:

    Wow, Ozzie’s ego is really out of control….but that’s no surprise. I doubt he spent the time searching the NY tabloids for comments from Swish, so that means a fine member of the Chicago media brought it to his attention. What does that say about the Chicago media? LOL Heads up to Ozzie – there are other managers in the world and not everything that Swish (or anyone says) revolves around you.
    Swish had a GREAT rep around baseball as a terrific teammate – when the Yankees traded for him, the traded was widely praised in part because of that rep. Does Ozzie have any idea how insane he sounds?

    Anyone see after Swisher hit the double in the 8th inning, he crossed his forearms and made an “X” sign… obviously for Nady.

    I hope AJ understood that they were booing the team in general (giving up 22 runs yesterday, losing to Pavano, the bandbox stadium etc.), not AJ himself. But he probably thinks all Yankee fans are irrational like that and will turn on him if he gives up a run.

    An inordinate amount of runs scored via the homerun. Especially for us in the game where Jeter had the game winning homerun. And for Cleveland today, all their runs came via the longball.

    The defense is looking much better. I wonder if there was a bit of nerves for the first series?

  162. S.A.--It's a marathon, not a sprint. Calm down. April 19th, 2009 at 11:02 pm

    if they were to measure from there to the wall, that would make from home plate to the wall alot shorter than OYS. am i on the right path here as to why so many HR’s are being hit or no?

    If Ransom’s bat had stayed together, that ball would have been in the seats.

    What he said was that he thought he’d hit the ball well and on the sweet spot, but, like Shoo, he lost track of where the ball went to. That was his reason for the confused look on his face. At first he thought that it was a long foul.

    Watch out for those Huck Finn types, though.

    If Kevin Long could throw a breaking ball, he’d be in the bullpen.

    The only thing that’s going to help him is a lot of practice with an Iron Mike that’s set up for breaking balls and change-ups. If he could figure that out, he’d make a great utility player.

    Buster Olney wrote a big article about how the stadium is a launching pad and how some yankee execs are a bit concerned. According to his article, bandboxes are bad for developing young pitchers.

    Rebecca: Tolkien was a genius.
    GB do you remember beav’s frien Larry Mondello – he killed me – funny comment about Lumpy

    BUT the real Eddie Haskell is M. Kay.

    AJ’ s nickname in Florida was Bada$$- that’s awesome – now he’s more mature but still has edge

    Fan Zone, I do think Yankee fans have taken to AJ – both for his pitching and stuff like kissing Swisher, lol. That said, yes – I expect them to boo the heck out of him whene he seriously blows up (as will happen to any pitcher). They’ll boo CC, they’ve already booed Tex. I wonder if he and CC are disappointed that the passionate crowds they expected to pitch in front of have not materialized……not that it matters in the long run.

    M, the FB adds to AJ’s mystique, but also the fact that he is a good old country boy as he describes himself. His whole body is tattooed, lol – he looks like a complete rebel, yet oddly he’s pretty quiet. I don’t think fans knew what to expect of him, but he’s the guy that bought Tex cake and balloons for his birthday and who’s learning Chinese so that he can communicate with Wang. I find him incredibly interesting……and I’m still waiting for him to pie someone, lol.

    Joba and Swish together? They need their own plane – I’d be bouncing off the walls if they sat together during a flight to or from the West Coast.

    Stadium just isn’t anything great, especially for the money they spent. Other teams get wonderful new stadiums with fireworks and waterfalls and little parks inside… we just get more frieze…. ummm… yeah, on TV we can’t see all the places where you can take more of our money. Really could care less about all the overpriced food. What you made was a park for the rich and the rich aren’t showing up. You completely ignored the majority of the fans. F you, Yankees management.

    Outfield defense is laughable. Infield defense is laughable. Out lineup is shaky. Out bullpen is mediocre. What we have is a great rotation, even with the failure that is Wang. If Wang figures it out, we are great 1-5 and not many teams can say that. We need some changes to balance ourselves out or we will remain a .500 team for the rest of the season and out here on the east coast .500 teams don’t get into the playoffs.

    Slumdog Millionaire, every second of it, is transcendent. The nearest to it recently is Pan’s Labyrinth. Both have that iconic feel…

    There is also convenience from the fact that delivery will be made to your doorsteps. Buying Christian Louboutin shoes from a brick and mortar store is disadvantageous in that you are restricted between 8 in the morning and around 5 in the evening and since these are working hours, it makes buying the shoes difficult.
