Gaudin to join Yankees on Sunday

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Aug 06, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Just spoke to Brian Cashman. Chad Gaudin is scheduled to join the team on Sunday. He’ll make only the prorated minimum for the rest of the season. He has a $2 million deal for this season, but the Cubs are on the hook for that beyond the minimum.

Cashman was talking to Kevin Towers about a deal before the deadline. But the Padres prioritized trading Jake Peavy and ran out of time. But once Gaudin cleared waivers, a deal was swiftly made.

“He gets his fastball up to 94, he has a good slider, he’s stretched out and can give us innings,” Cashman said. “This gives Joe (Girardi) more choices.”

Cashman said Sergio Mitre will stay in the rotation. But Gaudin is clearly here to offer an alternative.

    Mitre will stay in the rotation?
    Why?

  2. YankeeDudel August 6th, 2009 at 11:56 pm

    So if he does not replace Mitre, then Claggett goes down, I guess. And he just becomes an updated version of Brett Tomko?

  3. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Montero Fanaticus Primus August 6th, 2009 at 11:57 pm

    FWIW, remember a few weeks ago how there was the closed door meeting between Girardi, Swisher and Cashman?

    Swisher and Gaudin were roommates on the A’s.

  4. Zach August 6th, 2009 at 11:57 pm

    This team doesn’t have room for Mitre AND Gaudin

    Pick one.

  5. Trevor August 6th, 2009 at 11:58 pm

    It’s sort of like Ransom staying awhile after the Hairston jr. trade. But he’ll eventually get the boot.

  6. Andrew August 6th, 2009 at 11:58 pm

    I think “Mitre will stay in the rotation” is just doublespeak for “he has one more start before we pull the plug”, which seems fair enough. It lets them use Gaudin out of the bullpen if need be Sunday, or he can cover for Mitre if he pitches like garbage on Monday.

  7. Brandon... I'M AWESOME ! SOMEBODY FIND ME THE REAL CC SABATHIA !!!! August 6th, 2009 at 11:59 pm

    What this may mean is Mitre DFA to Scranton or goes into the LR role or Gaudin goes into the BP and Ace goes into the # 5th SP slot.

    GB, that’s fantastic. Would you like me to post the theme to the Patty Duke Show or Mr. Ed?

    sure thing, Betsy.

    Theme song for Mr. Ed

    Mister Ed by Ray Evans and Jay Livingston – Mr. Ed Lyrics

    A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
    And no one can talk to a horse of course
    That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mr. Ed.

    Go right to the source and ask the horse
    He’ll give you the answer that you’ll endorse.
    He’s always on a steady course.
    Talk to Mr. Ed.

    People yakkity yak a streak and waste your time of day
    But Mister Ed will never speak unless he has something to say.

    A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
    And this one’ll talk ’til his voice is hoarse.
    You never heard of a talking horse?

    Well listen to this.

    I am Mister Ed.

    theme song for the Patty Duke Show

    - The Patty Duke Show Lyrics

    Meet Cathy, who’s lived most everywhere,
    From Zanzibar to Barclay Square.
    But Patty’s only seen the sight.
    A girl can see from Brooklyn Heights —
    What a crazy pair!

    But they’re cousins,
    Identical cousins all the way.
    One pair of matching bookends,
    Different as night and day.

    Where Cathy adores a minuet,
    The Ballet Russes, and crepe suzette,
    Our Patty loves to rock and roll,
    A hot dog makes her lose control —
    What a wild duet!

    Still, they’re cousins,
    Identical cousins and you’ll find,
    They laugh alike, they walk alike,
    At times they even talk alike —

    You can lose your mind,
    When cousins are two of a kind

  9. Dr. Cox August 6th, 2009 at 11:59 pm

    Zach,

    Gaudin.

    Beckett/Burnett will be a great game tomorrow.

    If we can emerge from that game with a W, then we really have a chance to step on their throats Saturday and Sunday.

    By the end of this series, Boston could feasibly be behind Texas and TB for the wildcard.

    How great would that be?

  11. Pat M.... August 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Good pick up Rebecca……

  12. Nick in SF in Larkspur August 7th, 2009 at 12:01 am

    “FWIW, remember a few weeks ago how there was the closed door meeting between Girardi, Swisher and Cashman?”

    I thought we all agreed that Swisher was teaching Cashman and Girardi how to use Twitter.

  13. Dr. Cox August 7th, 2009 at 12:01 am

    Brandon:

    Once again, you are 100% correct. (for like the 3rd time tonight, a record)

    I was thinking this before, I was just in the middle of a insult war with some 16 year old who posts on the board to type it.

    But would this make the 5th slot more effective considering Ace’s recent troubles out of the bullpen?

  14. Betsy August 7th, 2009 at 12:01 am

    GB, actually I have memorized those theme songs by heart – I love old tv shows………

    Here’s a good article talking about the differences between the Sox and Yanks:

  15. tj August 7th, 2009 at 12:02 am

    nice move. he is not Ponson or Igawa plus he’s actually had success at this level before.

    btw, what was that PR sham the Yankees PR machine subjected Muhammad Ali to before the game? Lonn Trost and Levine should be dragged out behind Yankee Stadium and shot, in addition to the loud boo’s they both (especially Trost) deserved to have heard when they were introduced.

    rotoworld.com – MVP for Tex??

    “Mark Teixeira went 3-for-4 with a homer, two doubles and three RBI in a win over the Red Sox on Thursday night.
    Tex has collected hits in 14 of his past 15 games, and is hitting .349 with a .698 slugging percentage during that span. If he can keep hitting like this down the stretch — as he did last year — he’ll be the MVP frontrunner. “

  17. DT - OPPC member (blood type - Positive) August 7th, 2009 at 12:02 am

    Wow Rebecca. Good detective work there…

  18. GreenBeret7 August 7th, 2009 at 12:04 am

    Gaudin can and should give the yankees the same kind of games/flexibility that Lidle gave them during his short time….5-6 wins if he starts and allows NYY to give Chamberlain a skip through the rotation if necessary. The best case scenario would be pitching Mitre and Gaudin against teams like KC, Oakland and Seattle.

  19. w/e August 7th, 2009 at 12:04 am

    Imagine if Michael Kay called Yankee games solo Vin Scully-style?

    No, I don’t want to either.

  20. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Montero Fanaticus Primus August 7th, 2009 at 12:05 am

    BD 2.0: Derek Jeter first.

    Pat and DT: I think RAB mentioned Swisher had been roommates with Gaudin; that tipped me off

  21. DT - OPPC member (blood type - Positive) August 7th, 2009 at 12:05 am

    Tweet from Sox owner John Henry –

    “How did we lose that game? Let me count the ways. Tough loss.”

    oh wait.. never mind. He’s got his twitter on auto pilot – replaying the same message day after day. :-)

  22. miggs August 7th, 2009 at 12:05 am

    Ace is staying in the pen.

    If anything, Gaudin replaces Mitre if he bombs the next 2-3 starts.

  23. Dr. Cox August 7th, 2009 at 12:06 am

    Betsy:

    Is that tomorrows column or a blog entry?

  24. Patrick August 7th, 2009 at 12:07 am

    That was the most painful win in recent memory. I was at the stadium, the crowd was buzzing and every seat was packed (except for a few in the legends section of course).

    The walks were out of control but at least the Yanks won. I think you guys were getting on Melancon too much, he doesn’t pitch much and he gave up a walk and HBP but overall he did his job. Clagett and Joba on the other hand… yikes.

    Hopefully Burnett shuts down the Sox tomorrow and gives New York a clean victory after tonight’s slop.

    Gaudin is a nice acquisition, he has been bad this year but in 2006, 2007 and half of 2008 he was a fairly effective starter and reliever. I like the move and I expect Mitre will be gone soon. I think he will stay in the rotation for at least one more go simply because the Yanks are 3-1 in his starts but if he doesn’t give at least a quality start he’s gone.

    My question is, do the Yanks stick with 13 pitchers until Mitre has worn out his welcome? If they only go with 12 this move probably spells the end of Melancon’s stint in NY (for the time being). That’s a real shame, he’s pitched well of late.

    Ideally the Yanks would slot Gaudin into the 5 spot of the rotation, keep Melancon, get rid of Mitre and Claggett and call up Pena or Duncan.

    Anyways, my throat is sore from all the cheering I did so I’m going to sleep. GO YANKS!

  25. Roger Maris-- Speaks the truth. Sometimes it hurts. August 7th, 2009 at 12:08 am

    Somethings gotta give because Claggett will be sent down so Pena can be called up. Thats already been mentioned by Girardi. Who is going to go so that Gaudin can be added? Everybody in the pen seems to be throwing good enough to stick around for the time being.

  26. Mark H August 7th, 2009 at 12:11 am

    I don’t think Pena is coming until after Monday. I say Clagget stays for tomorrow, Gaudin takes his place Sunday, and then if Mitre bombs he will be sent down and Pena will be up.

  27. Christy Canyon August 7th, 2009 at 12:11 am

    “Going to e-mail me again and tell me Ellsbury isn’t a good CF? That’s a terrific catch. Defensive metrics are fundamentally flawed and only somewhat telling.”

    Pete, how many of Ellsbury’s 860 defensive innings have you watched this year? I know the defensive metrics are less developed than the offensive ones, but it is still a much better judge of performance than someone’s opinion that has only watched several dozens of innings. Our opinions and biases are much more flawed than the defensive metrics are. Just because you disagree with it on one player doesn’t mean that it is a terrible or unreliable method. I’m not sure if that is what you are saying or not, but it sort of sounds like it. I’m going to stick with the defensive metrics. I have only seen a dozen or so Red Sox games this year. I know that I have only seen a small portion of Ellsbury’s play out there. But I’m not going to believe that this guy is an elite fielder because of one flashy play he made tonight. The defensive metrics account for every inning and every play. I’ll trust what they say. He’s been a poor fielder this year.

    Suddenly it is the Red Sox who are watching aging sluggers break down (Mike Lowell, David Ortiz) while Yankees such as Jorge Posada and Hideki Matsui enjoy bounce-back years well into their mid-30s. Suddenly it is the Red Sox who are getting less-than-expected from young arms (Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz) while the Yankees thrive (Chamberlain, Hughes). Suddenly it is the Red Sox who are making deadline deals to import expensive talent (Victor Martinez) at the cost of young prospects, while the Yankees are content to add low-cost complementary pieces (Jerry Hairston Jr.) to add depth and flexibility.

  31. GreenBeret7 August 7th, 2009 at 12:16 am

    NYY is better off keeping the extra pitchers with them through this series, because it’s likely to be a battle of attrition, like tonight’s was.

  32. BD 2.0 August 7th, 2009 at 12:16 am

    The Sox lineup is filled with players who either not that good, good or aging. No ones great imo. Not a whole lot of difference makers in that lineup either.

    the stress leading up to it makes you want to throw ur tv out the window but the feeling of a walkoof especially off Papelbum is oh so worth it.

  69. GreenBeret7 August 7th, 2009 at 12:41 am

    I vote for tagging Beckett early. Lets beat down their bullpen til their arms fall off. I’m tired of hearing “red sox have the best bullpen in baseball blah, blah, blah”

  73. Bronx Jeers August 7th, 2009 at 12:43 am

    Melancon didn’t hit him on purpose but you gotta throw somewhere near the plate with a 9 run lead. Earlier he threw one at about the 6 foot level.

    Does the warning extend to tomorrow’s game? Beckett’s gotta be thinking about who he’s gonna plunk. I would say Tex which sucks.

    Smoltz has no answers as to why he has been so terrible but I just want to see him keep pitching.

    Red Sox took a nice jab to the nose tonight but don’t count them out this weekend. They’re like a case of the crabs.

    “I vote for tagging Beckett early. Lets beat down their bullpen til their arms fall off. I’m tired of hearing “red sox have the best bullpen in baseball blah, blah, blah””

    Agreed. If Beckett pitches badly tomorrow the Sox all of a sudden have to be worried because he and Lester are their only reliable starters. They also have Buchholz going on Saturday, who has yet to pitch into the 6th inning in four starts this year. Meanwhle the Yanks have CC, who is almost a lock for 7 innings.

    Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (1997) directed by Eastwood has some GREAT music… other than the tracks by he & his daughter which are there (to be bypassed). He’s a huge Jazz guy.

    I used to live a few blocks from Jim Williams’ home. That was an ugly 4 trials. Good book and good movie, but, a lot of liberties taken with facts. John Berendt didn’t meet Williams until a year after the killing and after the 2nd trial, in prison.

    Gaudin good sign. He has some potential, not great but much better than Perez does. Welcome aboard.

    Mitre is on a vert short leash for his next start if there really is one. The slightest sign of trouble and Chad Gaudin will be ready to go and make a case of being the No. 5 starter.

    Burnett needs to come up big tonight. beckett has been lights out since before the All Star break. Don’t figure to get more than 2-3 runs off him.

    gaudin is perfect for this team, he has control problems too.

    I gotta believe that Mitre staying in the rotation has a shelf life of about 6 minutes. Gaudin isn’t making anyone forget about David Cone anytime soon, but he has proven himself to be a decent major leaguer and, over his last 9 starts he has allowed 3 or fewer runs 7 times.
    Again, this guy isn’t slated to be a star but he has already proven more worthy of a spot than Sergio Mitre.

    Gaudin is pitching in the NL and in a pitchers park. He will be coming to the AL east and the yankees stadium is not consider a pitcher’s park anymore. People should not use mitre as a basis if a deal is good or not bec. mitre was awful so a lot of pitcher is better than mitre.

    Now that Gaudin is here, I gotta think Mitre has one more start to prove himself…. He has to have a quality start next time out or Gaudin gets a chance in the rotation.
