GGBG back in action

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Sep 03, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Gritty, gutty Brett Gardner hit leadoff for Triple-A Scranton today. He was 0 for 2 with a walk at Buffalo. He also outraced a cheetah in the outfield before the game, which was quite impressive.

It looks like he was taken out for a pinch hitter, which makes sense as they only wanted him to play five innings in his first game back since breaking his left thumb in July.

Look for Brett to rejoin the Yankees on Monday for the twinbill against the Rays.

    right when melky is kind of coming out of his funk.

    Nice… its like getting a steal of an acquisition at the waiver deadline

    This is great news. His speed is going to be huge for us.

    Pulled just in time for Cody Ransom to blow a bases loaded 1 out rally.

    But he out jumped a kangaroo moving onto the one deck circle.

  5. Hokiehill September 3rd, 2009 at 3:05 pm

    looking forward to his return…

    interesting numbers in the previous post. Damon has made his case for some kind of extension…amazing where ARod fits in all of those categories in a shortened season…I’m pumped about this team and the post-season but my attention is being fought hard for by this VT v Bama matchup this weekend. Saturday night can’t come soon enough!

    One question that has to be answered regarding Damon’s return is where does A-Jax fit in? If the Yanks plan to bring him up then there is a real logjam in the outfield. With GGBG’s return they already have 4 outfielders. Would we rather see all the kids play or have Damon return?

    Personally, I am intrigued by an outfield that includes A-Jax and Gardner in 2010. I think the Yankee pitchers would love that.

    Damon and Posada could share the DH duties I guess.

  12. Jeremy September 3rd, 2009 at 3:14 pm

    Patrick said in reply to jziglar…
    “The Yankees have the 2009, AAA “MVP” and AAA “Rookie of the Year”. They’re going to win their division, while Pawtuckett is a pathetic 58-79. The claim that the Yankees have a weak farm system and the Red Sox the best in baseball is, unfortunately for Red Sox Nation, utter nonsense.”

    - A smart Red Sox fan who I talked to from the NESN board realizes the truth. Even he understands that the Sox farm is overhyped by the media.

    I just got a chuckle when I was looking at some historical stuff at The Yanks are having a good year but currently have only the 18th best winning percentage in their history.

    The same percentage would be 4th best ever for the Red Sox.

  21. Patrick from CT September 3rd, 2009 at 3:21 pm

    Damon has earned a chance to come back as LF/DH. Now will he take a one year deal with an option and buy out? I don’t see the Yankees giving him a 2 year deal with other guys that will need to DH at some point.
    AJax has not been called up so I’d guess he not ready for a big league spot in 2010.

    Let’s worry about this stuff after the Yankees win the 2009 WS…

  22. Brandon Awesome "BECAUSE I'M AWESOME!" September 3rd, 2009 at 3:23 pm

    The cheetah was off his game today and wants a rematch.

  23. BG#11 September 3rd, 2009 at 3:24 pm

    needless to say im a big Brett Gardner fan..can’t wait to see him rejoin the starting line-up…fyi I’m going to guess he’s in the lineup for everyone of my GTLU predictions from monday on.

  24. Alan September 3rd, 2009 at 3:25 pm

    Girardi will give equal time to Melky and Gardner so that they’re both fresh for the playoffs.
    Can’t have Melky sitting too much.

  25. tex's friend September 3rd, 2009 at 3:26 pm

    the outfield will be fine next year. Jackson, Gardner, Melky, Damon, Swish. There is speed there. Athletic OF is overrated. And i would take the bat of Damon and Swish over faster corners with less power and less obp. 37 games over .500? Man Swish and Damon are KILLING US.

    Unless this is a joke, i don’t see Gardner getting that starting job back this year. Melky is starting to heat up again and his fielding hasn’t been an issue.

  28. Bleacher Creature P.J. September 3rd, 2009 at 3:30 pm

    The Yanks only need to go 15-14 during their remaining 29 games to reach 100 wins.

  29. Uncle Ellsworth (#2 needs 8 to tie #4) September 3rd, 2009 at 3:32 pm

    If the Yanks lose more than 8 games from here on in I’d be surprised – calling off the dogs or not.

  30. Seven September 3rd, 2009 at 3:53 pm

    Good news it will be great to have him back.

  31. rbj September 3rd, 2009 at 4:54 pm

  33. NJ Steve September 4th, 2009 at 10:31 am

    Gardner’s defense and speed is very valuable to this team. The other player that people should not be sleeping on is Marte. he has always been a solid pitcher and is very tough on lefties. The extra lefty in the pen is huge and if Marte is healthy I actually have more faith in him than Coke. Either way Marte will be very valuable in the postseason!

    Honestly you will lose weight probly 4 to 5 pounds a week if you work out alot but you will also gain it all back plus more as soon as you start eating again. plus you will most likely have nausea due to not eating and be really tired. So you will basically suffer for a month and then start school and gain a bunch of weight. maybe instead of trying to lose weight you could invest in a really cute outfit and some new makeup. Or go to the mall and have your makeup professionally done. you will look awesome and you wont be putting your self in danger.

    I love mine. It’s an Amy Coe from Target. I got it before I had my 2 year old. It’s great because it has 4 pockets on the outside for both girls’ bottles and the lining inside is so darn cute (light blue with yellow flowers) with a matching changing pad that matches the lining. I didn’t spend more than $40 on it. It’s a dark chocolate brown, if you can’t tell the color in this pic off the web. Click on bag for a better view.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
