Now that’s a cold trick to play on the kid

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on May 13, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Some unknown Yankee played a nice prank on Brett Gardner tonight.

The gritty, gutty rookie hit the first home run of his career tonight. When he got back to the clubhouse, he found the ball in his locker, already inscribed.

“First career home run, solo shot off Sam Richman for Brett Garder. 05-14-09.”

Of course, it was a two-run shot off Scott Richmond for Brett Gardner on 05-13-09. “I hope that’s not really the ball,” Gardner said.

No worries. Brett Tomko tracked down the trophy and official team inscriber Gene Monahan will wrote nicely on it later on tonight.

Meanwhile Brian Bruney shaved his head after throwing his bullpen. With the tats and bald noggin, he looks like the meanest bouncer in a biker bar.

It sounds like Jeter will be out tomorrow.

    Jeter out again tomorrow? is this more serious than they are letting on?

  2. Gary G. May 13th, 2009 at 11:11 pm

    This blog deserves better commenters. Half of them are bipolar (one minute the sky is falling and everyone needs to be demoted, the next minute people like Brett Gardner are thought to be saviors). The other half chat about mindless things like food and how attractive the players are.

    So we get to have the Porsche at shortstop again? :-P

  5. Al from BK May 13th, 2009 at 11:13 pm

    I don’t think Derek plays until the weekend. Oblique is a tricky injury and if its not handles properly it could really get nasty.

  6. Brandon aka MotherLover "It would be my honor to be your new stepfaaaaaaather" May 13th, 2009 at 11:14 pm

    LOL now that’s a prank.

    Jetes take your time. Take your time.

  7. Tiny May 13th, 2009 at 11:15 pm

    that is a really funny prank. Swisher?

  8. S.A.--The sun will come out tomorrow May 13th, 2009 at 11:16 pm

    It sounds like Jeter will be out tomorrow.

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

    Feel better Jetes

  9. Donnie May 13th, 2009 at 11:17 pm

    Pete, Pena is really showing himself to be a solid player with room for improvement. If his progress continues, do you think it will effect Jeter’s status at all when his contract runs out? Seeing The Captain play wearing another uniform would be painful, but I don’t get the feeling that the Yankees are in the practice, at this point, of handing out sentimental contracts to players past their prime when young, potentially better options are available. Your thoughts?

  10. Rishi May 13th, 2009 at 11:17 pm

    looks like the knuckleball’s not really “floating and flitting” well tonight

  11. Aunt Becca-Optimist Prime May 13th, 2009 at 11:18 pm

    Sounds like Jeter is headed to the DL.

    Bruney pitched better when he had hair in 08 than shaved in 07. I hope this isn’t a precursor of things to come.

  12. Betsy May 13th, 2009 at 11:20 pm

    LOL Brett fell for that………..

    Oh no, Bruney shaved his head? Terrible…….terrible.

    You could tell from the earlier blog post that Jeter is not really doing that well – he basically said it’s not getting better. I wonder if he should be DL’d – we can’t afford to have him aggravate the injury, that’s for sure.

  13. Tom K May 13th, 2009 at 11:20 pm

    So, Me/Myself, you are saying that if one has a 9-year old, 8-year old, 7-year old, and 6-year old…that the 9 year old isn’t a “kid”?

    Sheesh – I don’t know if you are a Yankees fan or not, but if you find yourself being upset over a HR hit by a member of the team you root for, it may be time for a new hobby.

  14. Justin C. May 13th, 2009 at 11:21 pm

    jeter isnt going to the DL

    they just rather be careful instead of rushing him

  15. Meryl May 13th, 2009 at 11:22 pm

    Something about this is screaming Swisher…

    He’s seriously the only one I can possibly imagine doing that…

  16. stuart May 13th, 2009 at 11:22 pm

    maybe th eyanks are being smart with jeter and since Pena is hitting about 280 with no power they can afford to give jeter another day off.. it is a long season and CC is pitching tommorrow…

    sit swisher play matsui at dh, and put gardner in CF, melky in right ,damon in left, and go from there. give gardner another game he earned it tonight, maybe he gets going a little unless you want to label him a career AAAA after about 110 AB’s………..

  17. Brian May 13th, 2009 at 11:22 pm

    that’s really mean. but funny! my guess is that it was either swisher or joba.

  18. Bronx Jeers May 13th, 2009 at 11:23 pm

    ——————————————————————————————-

    Don’t forget about the ones who waste their time writing meaningless drivel pointing out their moronic opinions of other peoples comments.

    —————-
    And then post it twice as if they are scared that someone won’t notice their particular brand of “genius”.

    Tell me Gary G, are you here to save us from ourselves? Why do we deserve such a great “commenter” like yourself.

  19. dave May 13th, 2009 at 11:24 pm

    THIS WAS THE YANKEES TONIGHT – or at least what they should be more than not. Im talking about some quality starting pitching, a pen that gets it done when it counts and hitters than get their hits with RISP. I liked the approach all around and of course, we won because that is the formula for a winning team. Of course, they can cut down on the errors some but i dont imagine pena will have too many errors in his major league career (however short it may be.) Nice job guys!!

  20. Gary G. May 13th, 2009 at 11:26 pm

    I’m merely making an observation which I have every right to do. I like Pete’s content but the commenters on this site are a laughing stock on other sites and I can see why.

  21. Dr. Cox May 13th, 2009 at 11:26 pm

    Someone need to play a prank on Tex to lighten the guy up.

  22. hardwired May 13th, 2009 at 11:27 pm

    from Buster Olney: “The Jays have won Halladay’s past 10 starts at the Rogers Centre versus New York. Halladay also is second only to Babe Ruth in his all-time winning percentage against the Yankees, at .762, or 16-5. The Babe was 17-5 against New York.”

    sounds about right.

  23. Zach in Port Jeff May 13th, 2009 at 11:27 pm

    Because Gary G. can’t stand mindless drivel, who noticed the blonde waitresses behind home plate tonight?

    How’s that Gary? Mindless enough for ya!

    I wish I could call you what I’d like to call you…

    Lets just say it rhymes with “Kooshbag”.

  24. Chris May 13th, 2009 at 11:28 pm

    Can anyone answer this question?

    So I watched MLB’s replay shot of Gardner’s homerun and they had a close up shot of him entering the dugout with a mic nearby. You can see the excitement in the guys faces and hear they cheering. It was a fantastic little clip.

    Why don’t the Yankees have that shot?

  25. Sore Hammy May 13th, 2009 at 11:28 pm

    Gary G – the sky is falling, fries are fun, Cervelli’s pants were really tight tonight.

  26. Brandon aka MotherLover "It would be my honor to be your new stepfaaaaaaather" May 13th, 2009 at 11:28 pm

    We hypnotize him w/ Cisco’s eyes..

    http://i39.tinypic.com/308ldmv.jpg

    …and get him to believe he’s a franchise player again.

  27. Angel - A tale told by idiots, full of sound and fury - signifying nothing. May 13th, 2009 at 11:31 pm

    We are not allowed to have fun on here.

    Gary-G has spoken.

  28. Zak May 13th, 2009 at 11:31 pm

    Really like the way Cervelli’s been calling games lately. Hope he’s in there tomorrow night. Don’t see much head shaking from the starters, and most of them are vets. Good stuff. Let it be noted that he was behind the dish last time CC pitched.. throwing the 4 hitter. Can’t expect the same again tomorrow, but anything close to it would be great. Gotta’ keep winning series’.

  29. Uncle Ellsworth May 13th, 2009 at 11:32 pm

    Gary when you have 10x more comments on a board than others do you are bound to have some disparate personalities.

    We know all the faults of the commenters on this board and embrace them (to a point).

    What’s your problem anyhow you don’t like french fries or is it condiments you are against- Michael Kay

    Why not just read Pete’s posts and skip the comments section then.

    I;m bringing my little brother too so no foul language either.

  39. Bronx Jeers May 13th, 2009 at 11:40 pm

    Tex seemed confident in his post game. Lets hope this was a turning point for him. Toronto didn’t want any part of Arod tonight. Let’s also hope that trend continues for Tex’s sake.

    Gary, your opinions seem to consist of nothing but insults. Is that what idea of a quality blog should be?

  40. Uncle Ellsworth May 13th, 2009 at 11:40 pm

    good point Brandon I ‘ll have my neice

    Gary G – Um. It’s 11:30 and you’re posting comments, too. You just missed a Seinfeld rerun and now you’re watching the Simpsons and you probably have your craw in a big dish of fries. Admit it.

    “Haha, you maturity levels astound me. I’ll continue to laugh at you no matter how much you mock me. You spend your entire days and nights on a Yankees blog. Your poor wives, husbands and families. Time to reevaluate your lives.”

    Now this is the kind of commentary that totally flaws me. How do you know who spends their days and nights here unless you too are here? Where do you get off telling others they need to reevaluate their lives? Did someone name you God? How about if being here works for them and their families? And if you find the posts here so beneath your dignity, why post here?

    no thats sarcasm!

    I’m not typically a violent person but I have to admit that right now I’d like to hit Gary G with a huge dish of french fries, and the kind with vinegar on them. And you know if that gets in his eyes, it will burn like heck.

    I’m so ashamed.

  51. Billy May 13th, 2009 at 11:48 pm

    Pete, been noticing a lot of grammar/spelling errors lately. Must be those 6am flights huh?

    “Toronto didn’t want any part of Arod tonight.”

    The good news is he didn’t swing at slop. He took his base and let someone else get it done. Not sure he was willing to do that enough in the past.

  59. hardwired May 13th, 2009 at 11:52 pm

    Bard is making his MLB debut. He’s throwing BBs.

  60. pat May 13th, 2009 at 11:55 pm

    8-4 Angels over Sox

  61. Brandon aka MotherLover "It would be my honor to be your new stepfaaaaaaather" May 13th, 2009 at 11:56 pm

    “The good news is he didn’t swing at slop. He took his base and let someone else get it done. Not sure he was willing to do that enough in the past.”

    Yeh 3 BBs I can’t remember the last time he did that unintentionally.

    As for Gary G. he better rethink this, alot of us haven’t been underneath the Oneill banner in awhile the last poster that called someone out from this blog overthere has mysteriously disappeared. :)

  62. Tom from MA May 13th, 2009 at 11:56 pm

    What a great prank…figures that Gene is the “official” team inscriber… A quick story: I was on a Yankee Stadium tour in ’02 and reached down between the Yankee dugout seat cushions to find 4 small folded slips of paperwith names (Torre, Zim, Gene, Cone) accompanied by 5-figure numbers around 50,000. My dad and I figured that they were predictions of the game’s attendance by the guys. Gene’s was by far the most ornate signature of the bunch.

  63. m May 13th, 2009 at 11:58 pm

    I think I need to miss more games. Sounds like a good one all around.

    And on the plus side, that 4-0 Boston lead? He gone.

  64. Uncle Ellsworth May 14th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Come on guys that prank is older than Mordechai 3 fingers

  65. Tex's friend (just got above .200) May 14th, 2009 at 12:01 am

    a-rod is going to dh tomorrow so pena would have played no matter what. now we get the man, the myth, the berroa at 3rd tomorrow… at least it seemed arod wouldnt be playing the field all three games on the turf.

  66. Mike R May 14th, 2009 at 12:08 am

    Berroa is 1-1 with a HR off Tallet

  67. Evan May 14th, 2009 at 12:09 am

  68. Dr. Cox May 14th, 2009 at 12:10 am

    How amazing would it be if one broadcast O’neal mentioned something about how his banner has become the banner to meet people if you want to fight.

    Something tells me he would enjoy that.

    S.A., like I said, it never gets old…

  69. Brandon aka MotherLover "It would be my honor to be your new stepfaaaaaaather" May 14th, 2009 at 12:13 am

    He can be the official to the fights. Yankee fans need something to bond over especially w/ how they play at the stadium. :P

  70. Uncle Ellsworth May 14th, 2009 at 12:14 am

    Dr Cox
    Wait til you go to the Stadium and see what’s actually under the O’Neill Banner – kinda funny / ironic

    BTW I do think it would be cool that the banner is the unofficial Lohud meeting spot

  71. Dr. Cox May 14th, 2009 at 12:17 am

    Uncle Ells,

    I was there the morning after this whole debacle started with “Ransom Sucks.” That was the day of the 22-4 Cleveland shelling of Wang.

    I didn’t get into a fight, though. Now that I think about it, I remember feeling somewhat disappointed. Ha.

    There would be tears streaming down my face from laughing so hard if O’Neil ever said that.

  73. Uncle Ellsworth May 14th, 2009 at 12:19 am

    Oh that’s right- Now I remember you were going. Since then they put something under the Banner

  74. Dr. Cox May 14th, 2009 at 12:21 am

    Im going to one of the Phils games so ill absolutely check it out.

    Please, god, let it be a boxing ring…

  75. S.A.--The sun will come out tomorrow May 14th, 2009 at 12:22 am

    Pete should have someone take a picture of him under the O’Neil banner. He could then use the pic in the “About the Author” part of the blog.

  76. miggs May 14th, 2009 at 12:23 am

    I’d like to see CC pitch another gem tomorrow. Then go home and beat up on the Twins.

    They need a streak of some sort. 7 out of 8. 9 out of 10. Something like that.

  77. Uncle Ellsworth May 14th, 2009 at 12:25 am

    S.A. He TOTALLY does need a new pic. and under the banner would be perfect.

    did zimmerman get ahit?

  78. Brandon aka MotherLover "It would be my honor to be your new stepfaaaaaaather" May 14th, 2009 at 12:25 am

    I wonder if Selena Roberts will visit the Oneill banner :?

  79. pat May 14th, 2009 at 12:27 am

    Uncle E

    No. He went 0-3 today. Streak stopped at 30.

  80. Uncle Ellsworth May 14th, 2009 at 12:27 am

    cito gaston looks the same as he did in 1992

  81. pat May 14th, 2009 at 12:29 am

    Bard needed 28 pitches to get through an inning. 1 hit, 1 BB, no runs. Hit 97 twice but mostly sat at 95 with his fastball.

  82. Uncle Ellsworth May 14th, 2009 at 12:29 am

    Thanks pat
    can’t say I’m disappointed – I’m a little protective of Yankee records

  83. Gary G. May 14th, 2009 at 12:34 am

    Don’t be mad because I can afford tickets to Yankee Stadium. Maybe if you all stopped spending your time on the blog and worked like me, you would have the money. Better yet, stop spending the money on condiments. I’ll wave to you from behind home plate next home game. Jealous?

  84. Dr. Cox May 14th, 2009 at 12:36 am

    56 will never be topped.

  85. Russell NY May 14th, 2009 at 12:40 am

    Our infield defense is top-notch with ARod, Pena, Cano, Tex. If Pena can go 1/4 for a few days I’ll take it. Jeter take your time!

  86. Uncle Ellsworth May 14th, 2009 at 12:40 am

    Oh Gary Gary Gary

  87. Russell NY May 14th, 2009 at 12:40 am

    Brett Gardner has more HR’s than David Ortiz

    Gary-

    Are you for real?

  89. Gary G. May 14th, 2009 at 12:42 am

    Pipe down Trisha, go fantasize about a minor league Venezuelan who will never look twice your way.

  90. Uncle Ellsworth May 14th, 2009 at 12:42 am

    Gary:
    Melky or Gardner?
    Posada or Molina?
    Joba Pen or Joba Start?

    Essay Wang is/is not an Ace discuss.

  91. Spudz May 14th, 2009 at 12:43 am

    56 is probably the most immortal of all baseball records, way to much pressure to ever break that one.

    Good job tonight team! Lets make it two in a row!!!!

  92. miggs May 14th, 2009 at 12:47 am

    Yet this successful, rich, popular guy “Gary G.”is picking fights with random strangers on the internet at 12:40AM EST. Go figure.

    What’s wrong with this picture?

  93. Gary G. May 14th, 2009 at 12:47 am

    I’m not kidding. Everything I am saying is completely right and I am not out of line.

    1. You people spent the duration of the game talking about food. ADHD MUCH?
    2. Brett Gardner is thought to be a messiah here. No baseball player let alone the worst one on our team deserves to be thought of in that light.
    3. Look at last nights post. I counted several posts about demoting Gardner and other players to AAA. Now we win one game and all is well in Yankee-land. Some of you are too emotional.
    4. The three women commenters acted like stereotypical female fans, fawning over a players eyes. If they thought he was ugly, they wouldn’t care about his gameplay and that is SAD.

  94. Spudz May 14th, 2009 at 12:48 am

    next to cy young’s win record that is….

  95. m May 14th, 2009 at 12:49 am

    Gary G,

    How will we know it’s you? Will you be wearing a red carnation on your lapel?

    (I’m not being sarcastic, it’d be cool to see somone we know. So far the only person I’ve seen that I know is Bobby Baccala)

  96. Gary G. May 14th, 2009 at 12:49 am

    Melky, Posada’s hitting, Molina’s arm and game-calling abilities, Joba starting.

    I don’t think you have the reading comprehension skills to read an essay from a Columbia graduate, Uncle Ellsworth.

    Good night to those who aren’t already in a food comatose.

    Wow. I’m speechless Gary. Speechless.

    And I wasn’t even here for the in-game thread. But you have some serious issues, man. This blog has bothered you that much that you have to write all this nonsense?

    There’s lots of other blogs out there that would love a chance to laugh at your “content”.

    I’m not kidding. Everything I am saying is completely right and I am not out of line.

    1. You people spent the duration of the game talking about food. ADHD MUCH?
    2. Brett Gardner is thought to be a messiah here. No baseball player let alone the worst one on our team deserves to be thought of in that light.
    3. Look at last nights post. I counted several posts about demoting Gardner and other players to AAA. Now we win one game and all is well in Yankee-land. Some of you are too emotional.
    4. The three women commenters acted like stereotypical female fans, fawning over a players eyes. If they thought he was ugly, they wouldn’t care about his gameplay and that is SAD.

    Except for your conclusion mostly TRUE

    Many Like Melky over Gardner.

    I really don’t see whats wrong with what you pointed out.
    people talk about food and ladies like guys with nice eyes.

    That description may be a little over the top but nobody can deny that the insane run the asylum during game threads.

    There’s a reason why a number of smart baseball fans stay clear of this site during the action and it isn’t because they want to fully concentrate on the action in front of them.

    It’s because this place turns into a sewer when the Yanks lose – hell, when the Yanks are losing 1-0 in the 1st inning.

  123. Mackenzie from JetsDaily May 14th, 2009 at 5:17 am

    Gary had a point, but then he turned into an elitist prick and lost any hope of having credibility.

    Sports are reactionary. The problem is assuming that one game or a week’s worth of games determine a season. They don’t. It’s another slow start, which I’m SICK of, and injuries have been a problem.

    I don’t know what the answers are. Once A-Rod, Posada, and Teixiera are healthy and hitting, this offense will look great and score runs. The starting pitching will also be fine. C.C. hasn’t forgotten how to pitch and his last start is a big jump-off point. He and Joba I have the utmost faith in, though obviously Chamberlain needs to stay healthy. Wang and Pettite should be solid, too, and if Burnett can get his ERA down to the 4′s, this should be a very good team.

    The biggest question will be the bullpen. How good will Mariano and his bridge be? Rivera pitching the way he has for years is vital. If Bruney is healthy and pitching the way he has, then we have a very good 8-9 inning combo. Of course, the middle relief is a problem. The arms are young and plentiful, with Coke, Robertson, and Melancon showing the most promise. Melancon will be back at some point, assuming he hasn’t forgotten how to throw stries.

    I hate to blame injuries (and whatever problems Wang had), but it’s a big reason behind this start.

    And Gardner has more homers than Ortiz. I love that!

    heard it on wfan with boomer & carton this morning early.

  128. bru May 14th, 2009 at 6:33 am

    if pena can hit at a decent clip we will be ok.

    the wang,posada,bruney,nady injuries are what is hurting us.especially wang.

    pitching is the key.
    if it steps up we will be fine if it does not we will not be.

    i am curious to see how hughes pitches.

    when he pitched the gem after he got called up theo from the rs took notice & said he looked like a frontline starter from what i heard.

    i like the fact that theo was probably upset hughes looked great so i would like that to continue.

  129. SJ44 May 14th, 2009 at 7:31 am

    You don’t mess with Oblique muscles. You rush back from one and pull it, that’s 6 weeks.

    Better if he has to go on the DL for 15 days than miss 6 weeks.

    Bru,

    Re: Gary G, its all in the delivery. His point about the game thread is correct. His delivery? Nose in the air Ivy League crap. That’s where it fails.

    Read last nights game thread. From the time the lineup was announced until the time the Yankees trailed, it was a sewer, filled with mindless, baseball IQ challenged folks writing nonsensical post after nonsensical post.

    Magically, as soon as the Yankees took the lead, they all vanished. At that point, the regulars took over the thread and it became fun, enjoyable and readable again.

    One thing though…..

    Anybody who puts vinegar on french fries really needs to be taken under the O’Neill banner and beaten senseless.

    Just my opinion. I could be wrong.

  130. ellen May 14th, 2009 at 7:37 am

    Mornin’, SJ. Totally agree about the vinegar. How do you feel about gravy? I remember that fries with gravy was my standard law school middle-of-the-night studying-for-finals treat.

  131. bru May 14th, 2009 at 7:40 am

    if the yankees win today or tonight they did what they were supposed to do,win the series.

    it is amazing what good pitching & timely hitting can do for a team.

    after the first loss of the series it was the end of the world.

    one win & people found a way to praise players that didn’t even play well.

    we need posada,bruney,wang back so we can see what this team is really made of.

  132. SJ44 May 14th, 2009 at 7:40 am

    Its funny you should say that Ellen. Someone in my study group in law school also loved gravy on her fries. Not my thing.

    I’m a basic ketchup with fries guy.

    A friend of mine from New Orleans always puts hot sauce on his fries. I should say he has fries with his hot sauce.

    By the time he finishes putting the hot sauce on the fries, you see more hot sauce than fries!

  133. bru May 14th, 2009 at 7:43 am

    sj how is the weather down there in so fla??

    a friend of mine lives in fort lauderdale.

    i love it there.had a lot of fun spring breaks there until the politicians pushed the spring breakers out & it became more family oriented.

    many years ago though.i saw the yankees in st there a few times when they played there in the 80,s

  134. SJ44 May 14th, 2009 at 7:48 am

    The weather has been great. High 80′s during the day, high 60′s at night.

    Not had a lot of rain and we could use some to keep the wildfires from breaking out.

    Anybody whining about losing to Halliday simply isn’t in tune with the game.

    He has dominated the Yankees for years. Even when this was a healthy, good hitting team.

    The whole idea in baseball is winning series. You win enough of them, you make the playoffs.

    The individual matchup, while hyped to no end, isn’t what its about.

    Its all about winning series.

    Toronto has not lost a home series this year. If the Yankees can win tonight, I’d say that’s a job well done.

  135. Dr. Cox May 14th, 2009 at 7:49 am

    Gravy on the fries are called “disco fries” and its giving me a stomach ache just thinking about it. I used to drown in that stuff in high school…late at night…

    dh,lf,rf,ss,3b ??

    damon in lf,melky in cf,swish in right,arod at 3rd,pena at ss,dh matsui,cervelli catching???

    go with the best lineup or see if gardner is getting hot??

  137. D Lynch May 14th, 2009 at 8:00 am

    We all know it’s best to get runs early in the game- establish a lead. Don’t waste your first inning AB’s.
    Also, it’s better to have the hot bats get more AB’s than the cold bats.
    Also, make the guys earn their spot in the lineup and not be given it because they’re supposed to be a “superstar”.

    I think an appropriate short term batting order calls for:
    - sit Jeter
    - sit Swiaher
    - move Cano & Cabrera up
    - slide Teixera & Rodriguez down
    Result:
    Damon
    Cano
    Cabrera
    Matsui
    Teixera
    Rodriguez
    Pena
    Cervelli
    Gardner

    If Posada returns soon, put him after Matsui and slide Teix and Rodr down one more.
    If Jeter returns soon, maybe even consider putting him low in the order until he gets over whatever funk has chilled his bat.

  139. Tom in N.J. May 14th, 2009 at 8:08 am

    I liked Gardner’s at bats last night. Swing at the good pitches early in the count and hammer them. It’s so much better then taking two fastballs and swining at a breaking ball out of the zone.

  140. Dr. Cox May 14th, 2009 at 8:15 am

    Damon
    Cano
    Cabrera
    Matsui
    Teixera
    Rodriguez
    Pena
    Cervelli
    Gardner

    I dont know. It seems like you can just pitch around Tex and Alex to get to our bottom three.

    Dont get me wrong, I am all about switching line-ups around but I dont feel as if jeter needs to sit and also the depth of this line up.

    But hell, its worth a try.

  141. 86w183 May 14th, 2009 at 8:17 am

    When Posada comes back you have Cabrera hitting third and Alex 7th? Gary G could come up with a better lineup while is man servant trims his nose hair.

    Does Swisher swing and miss more than anyone you’ve ever seen before? Seems that way to me.

    Good point on Berroa, maybe he is the emergency catcher… of course since there’s no one on hand who can pinch hit what difference does it make?

  142. bru May 14th, 2009 at 8:18 am

    the thing that concerns me is that we have seen this from gardner before.

    he can be in the lineup tonight & look terrible.

    sit swish in favor of gardner??

    gardner needs ab if you wan’t to see how good he is.

    i guess my main concern is girardi thinking he does not have to have his best lineup because sabathia is on the mound.

    i go with

    damon
    cano
    tex
    arod
    melky
    matsui
    gardner
    pena
    cervelli

    not necessarily in that order

  143. bru May 14th, 2009 at 8:22 am

    who would of ever thought we would be hearing pitching around arod & tex to get to the bottom three??

    at some point this year i have to believe that it will not be as easy as it is now to do that.

    i got cc as my fantasy pitcher tonight.

    go yankees.

  144. bru May 14th, 2009 at 8:29 am

    i am thinking about dropping floyd,galaraga,wakefield & picking up porcello,cecil,jimenez???

    jimenez hasn’t looked great but over his last 2 games has & throws hard.

    porcello is young with tons of talent but might not stay in the rotation when some injured pitchers return but looked great over his last 2 games.

    cecil is another toronto pitcher that has these numbers
    W-L 1-0 ERA 0.64 K 12 Walks 2 WHIP 0.93

  145. Betsy May 14th, 2009 at 8:37 am

    C’mon, Gary is just a troll and frankly, I don’t see how he made any good points at all. At the point he came in, we were all having a fun and lighthearted discussion. What did he want, Shakespeare? If he didn’t like the topics of conversation, he should have moved on to another blog or whatever. I have little tolerance for people who are obnoxious for no reason…..

  146. Dr. Cox May 14th, 2009 at 8:38 am

    If you go to the Girardi’s wikipedia page, you can see a picture pf Pete in the background of his profile pic.

    Hells yea, Pete.

  147. Betsy May 14th, 2009 at 8:42 am

    I’d put Jeter on the DL – we can’t afford to lose him for an extended period of time. The way he plays the game hard all the time, there’s a good chance he’d aggravate the injury unless it’s fully healed. The Yankees lately have taken risks with their injured players whereas they used to be ultra- conservative. Now would be a good time to get back to being conservative.

  148. hokiehill May 14th, 2009 at 8:45 am

    I’m going to skip reading the comments and just assume that after last night’s win half of the people who thought the season was over after the loss against Halladay are predicting the Yankees will now win the World Series…good stuff.

    There’s No Fooling Brett Gardner
    By Tyler Kepner
    May 13, 2009

    The ball from a player’s first hit or home run is a cherished memento, which means that, in baseball, it’s ripe for a prank. Someone retrieves the ball, keeps it in a safe place, then presents the rookie with a fake ball, often with a bunch of swear words scrawled on it.

    The Yankees tried it Wednesday night on Brett Gardner, who punched his first career homer down the right field line in an 8-2 victory over the Blue Jays. In his locker, he found a ball with no bad words, but five mistakes written on the sweet spot:

    “First career home run, solo shot off Sam Richmand for Brett Garder, 5-14-09″.

    Problem was, it was a two-run shot off Scott Richmond, by Brett Gardner, on May 13, 2009.

    I mean, come on. That’s like changing the grade on a report card from an F to an A. The unnamed prankster should’ve been more subtle. One or two mistakes and Gardner might have fallen for it. But five? No shot.

    “I’ll put it in my house, along with my first hit ball, I guess ? I think that’s a joke right there,” Gardner said, inspecting the fake as he read the inscription and chuckled. “Supposed to be a joke. Not too funny, though.”

    Trainer Gene Monahan is actually responsible for inscribing milestone baseballs for Yankees players. It is one of several unofficial duties for Monahan, who also fixes players’ gloves is the clubhouse go-to man for all things related to auto racing.

    By the way, add Brett Gardner to the list of players to hit a home run this season before David Ortiz of the Red Sox. Others include Nick Green, Michel Hernandez, Chad Moeller and Koyie Hill. (And that’s just among ex-Yankees?.)

  150. jennifer May 14th, 2009 at 8:48 am

    Funny how he talked about being able to afford seats behind homeplate. I bet he can’t afford seats in the bleachers. The guy was a jerk plain and simple. As you said, if he doesn’t like what is being said move on and go to another blog. He was just here to stir up trouble and push peoples buttons and he succeeded.

  151. bru May 14th, 2009 at 8:50 am

    it sounds like gardner wasn’t at all happy about the prank.

  152. Bill May 14th, 2009 at 8:51 am

    Trivia Help needed: A friend lost a bar bet last night. He bet Millar played for the NYY at one time. I told him no way, but he bet anyway. He claims in the past few years a position player from the Red Sox came to the NYY and played a little and then the NYY got rid of him, wasn’t very good. Wasn’t a key player, did not play much. I can’t think of anyone. Anybody konow if this is true?

  153. Coach6423 May 14th, 2009 at 8:51 am

    Did I just seriously read a lineup with Cano and Melky in the 3-4 holes, and Arod and Tex in the 5 – 6 holes…oiy vey

  154. jennifer May 14th, 2009 at 8:53 am

    bru- Yep, If that is the case he needs to loosen up. He is still a rookie. That is a prank that they pull on all rookies. My god if that bothers him, what would he have thought about what they did to rookies years ago. They wouldn’t even speak to him.

    i remember hearing that jeter talked to melky when melky lost the cf job about playing & working hard.

    i bet that bothered gardner especially the fact that he is in competition with melky.

    Well he DID go to Columbia so he probably has a nice trust fund setup by Daddy. I wonder if he has a job.

    Nice win.

    Maybe the Yanks (specifically Gardner, who many including myself were questioning) were reading this blog yesterday?

    Pena looks great at SS.

    Let’s hope this is the beginning of a run. Go get em’ CC.

  169. JohnC May 14th, 2009 at 9:14 am

    Told you guys that Gardner would give this team a jolt. All I got was blasted for it by Sj and Billy, and all the other know it alls. Meanwhile Nick SWHIFFER continues to make less and less contact.

  170. SJ44 May 14th, 2009 at 9:16 am

    John,

    He had one night. Let’s not put him in the HOF yet.

    Baseball is about consistency. Not one night.

    He came into the game hitting .224. Let’s see if he can build on the night or if it was just one night.

  171. vin May 14th, 2009 at 9:17 am

    “This is not a joke.

    Gary G has a website.

    http://www.garyg.co.za/

    I so hope that it’s his site. If it is, then I guess he can afford those great seats because of his thriving karaoke business. lol

  172. STFU May 14th, 2009 at 9:19 am

    “He came into the game hitting .224. Let’s see if he can build on the night or if it was just one night.”

    Just to be fair, that is better than Tex :)

    Glad to see him light some balls up last night too.

  173. SJ44 May 14th, 2009 at 9:23 am

    Not as many AB’s as Tex. If he had as many AB’s, he would have a lower BA.

    I’d love to see Gardner make it. However, he has to show he can hit ML pitching on a consistent basis.

    He’s probably best suited as a 4th OF for someone. I just don’t know if that team is the Yankees.

    If he can get hot and help the team win games, I’d love to see it. I’m just not counting on it.

    For the better part of the last 4 games, Tex’s AB’s have been quality. The results may not show it but, he looks much better at the plate.

    I’m not worried about Tex. He will be productive as the season goes on.

    This team was built on pitching this year. Its fate will rise and fall with the quality of the starters and bullpen.

    If they pick up their games, these guys will win a lot of games this year. If not, they won’t.

  174. JohnC May 14th, 2009 at 9:25 am

    SJ

    Who’s putting him in the Hall of fame? All I said was to get him a start or 2 cause Swisher isn’t doing anything. Now against Halladay, I didn’t expect anything, and nobosy except Damon hit the ball hard. But last night, he got them going. When the lineup is anemic, you have to try something different sometimes to get something going.

  175. bru May 14th, 2009 at 9:28 am

    tex has 7 hr & 19 rbi with a better obp & will get much better.

    it is to early to tell if gardner deserves to be in a ml lineup but on most occasions he was killing us being in the lineup.

    no way we can have a player with an obp at or under 300.

    no way gardner is in the lineup over melky right now.

    we have to give gardner a chance here & there but not at the expens of benching melky,damon & maybe swisher.

  176. miggs May 14th, 2009 at 9:29 am

    Nice win last night. If CC can have an outing anything close to his last one, winning the series appears likely. Baby steps. They have a long way to go.

    Speaking of lineups, here’s one I’d throw together for the time being. This assumes Jeter is out for awhile…

    Cabrera
    Cano
    A Rod
    Damon
    Tex
    Matsui
    Swisher
    Cervelli
    Pena

    If Jeter comes back in a day or so…..

    Jeter
    Cabrera
    Damon
    A Rod
    Tex
    Cano
    Matsui
    Swisher
    Cervelli

  177. Coach6423 May 14th, 2009 at 9:32 am

    Some of you guys need to seriously stop with the Tex out of the 3 hole thing.

  178. miggs May 14th, 2009 at 9:36 am

    Coach I’m just throwing some ideas around.

    Really the changes in lineups, for me at least, are more motivated by Damon and the way he’s killing the ball.

    In both my lineups I have him in the 3 or 4 spot. I know he’s a career leadoff hitter. But I’ve watched every game this year and Damon is BY FAR our best bat right now. I know Tex will come around. Its not like I dropped him to 7th in the order.

    Also, these would be temporary until Posada and Jeter get back. Its just with so many weak spots right now, you need to give your run producers the best chance to drive in runs.

    Right now Malky and Cano get on base the most, and Damon drives them all in. The guy has a ton of RBIs from the 2 hole. Imagine if he was hitting cleanup.

  179. Joekuh - Be a man and put your name on it. - Doug Mientkiewicz May 14th, 2009 at 9:36 am

    About time Little G took advantage of his chance. Let the triple threat match between Melky/Swish/Little G begin!!

  180. Andy May 14th, 2009 at 9:37 am

    I can promise you guys that Gardner did not get upset over that joke. If you knew him, you would know he is the biggest jokester of anyone. He has a great sense of humor and I know exactly what he would have said but I won’t put it in print on here due to keeping it PG rated.

  181. randy l. May 14th, 2009 at 9:37 am

    “This team was built on pitching this year.”

    i agree that it was, but the strange thing is that despite little contribution from arod and teixeira the yankee offense is very close to the league lead in runs scored.

    despite all the injuries, the offense has scored runs. when arod and teixeira get bacj to normal, the offense looks to be very good.

    the pitching on the other hand is still dead last in the league.

    that’s beyond belief. no one would have predicted this. if yankee pitching stays dead last for another 3-4 weeks, eiland will be fired whether it’s his fault or not . there would be no choice.it would be too embarrassing for the yankees for this to continue.

    so eiland is on a 3-4 week leash. it shouldn’t be too hard to get off of it though. how could this starting staff continue to be this bad?

    i guarantee someone like eiland who has always had to pay attention to having a job is starting to think about his job being in jeopardy. that’s not necessarily a bad thing as he should be very focused on getting some improved pitching results.

  182. Tex's Friend (Soon the starting 5 will dominate again!) May 14th, 2009 at 9:37 am

    Switching the lineup is a bad idea. they need stability and they will come together.

  183. Joekuh - Be a man and put your name on it. - Doug Mientkiewicz May 14th, 2009 at 9:44 am

    Miggs, that’s an interesting one. I dunno if Melk/Cano have the plate discipline right now to draw enough walks to warrant that lineup. Well, maybe Cano, but I like Melky where he is right now. I’d maybe move Melk up to 6th or 7th in front of Cervelli/Cash + Pena, but that’s the most. More pressure when you’re at the top of the lineup

  184. Mark in Tampa May 14th, 2009 at 9:47 am

    The way Tex was hitting the ball hard last night was a good sign. Also, he took a slider down and in that looked like a strike for a while. That shows that he is recognizing the pitches and should start hitting well real soon. The FB he took for a called strike 3 in his last AB, though, shows he is not out of it yet, he has been doing that far too often thus far.

    The way things work, if you change Damon’s spot in the order to take advantage of the roll he is on, he will soon go cold for an extended stretch. Nobody this side of Pujols stays hot all year.

  185. pat May 14th, 2009 at 9:55 am

    Has anyone seen an update on how IPK’s surgery went?

  186. hokiehill May 14th, 2009 at 9:56 am

    yeah, I don’t get where people are coming off with “Gardner needs to lighten up…” Maybe you guys have seen a video of his comments or something, but based on just the little snipit of his response from this post I would not start bashing the guy for being too serious…He could have said “I hope that’s not really the ball” while laughing/smiling…It’s not like I read that and picture Gardner sitting there crying over the fake baseball…

  187. hokiehill May 14th, 2009 at 10:00 am

    remember for those tinkering with the lineup…your changes are based on guys who have a hot bat where they are hitting NOW…you start changing things up and maybe the guys not hitting will start, but it’s just as likely that the guys that are hitting will stop…the one thing that drove me nuts last year was the constant shifting around of the lineup…baseball players are creatures of habit and IMO too much tinkering with the lineup does not help guys build consistancy.

  188. Doris from Rego Park May 14th, 2009 at 10:38 am

    Glad to see my Porsche/Ford Taurus analogy has stuck around…

  189. OldRanger May 14th, 2009 at 1:17 pm

    With Jeter out I like;
    Brett-CF
    Johnny-LF
    Tex-1st
    A-Rod-3rd
    Cano-2nd
    Melky-RF
    Matsui-DH
    Cervelli-C
    Pena-SS
    Ideally Pena and Brett should change places (Pena-SH) but, Johnny hits lefty’s well

  215. look at here August 11th, 2014 at 12:15 pm

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  216. additional reading August 11th, 2014 at 1:24 pm

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

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