Rest prescribed for Robertson

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Sep 10, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

This from the Yankees:

RHP David Robertson was seen today by Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, Fla., and underwent an MRI to evaluate stiffness in his right elbow. Dr. Andrews has recommended 10-14 days of rest for Robertson before beginning a throwing program.

That’s good news for Dave. He could start throwing around Sept. 14 and that would give him ample time to get ready for the playoffs.

UPDATE, 7:11 p.m.: I’m factoring in the days he has already been off, which is how the Yankees have done it in the past.

    I’m no whiz at math, but if Andrews sez Roberton needs ten to fourteen days, that books the 20th as the soonest he can start throwing again. Which is not quite as ample. Or are we backdating the required rest?

  2. MikeBoston September 10th, 2009 at 7:11 pm

    Best case scenario on this!

  3. Peter Abraham September 10th, 2009 at 7:13 pm

    I’m factoring in those days he has already been off.

  5. Ed in SF September 10th, 2009 at 7:15 pm

    Pete – If he can start a “throwing program” in 10-14 days, when would that mean he could actually pitch in games? I sure hope he’s ready for the playoffs – anything that pushes Bruney farther down the depth chart is a good thing IMHO

  6. baseballfab September 10th, 2009 at 7:19 pm

    Pete, Bruschi just did a FANTASTIC job on ESPN. Go Patriots!!

  7. jennifer September 10th, 2009 at 7:28 pm

    That is fantastic news. Best case. Hopefully rest will knock it out.

  10. SJ44 September 10th, 2009 at 7:32 pm

    Best possible news for him.

    Get in a couple of games in the last week-10 days of the season and he is good to go for the post-season.

  11. Jeremy September 10th, 2009 at 7:32 pm

    Can we pick the B schedule for the ALDS ? Because Washburn is really looking bad. And if the Yankees can take out Verlander and Jackson then the Tigers are in trouble.

  12. Ed in SF September 10th, 2009 at 7:36 pm

    If the Yankees pick the B series, do you start Joba? I’m assuming the answer is “yes” and I think he’s the kind of guy who might respond well to the adrenaline filled atmosphere of the playoffs. And one of his best starts of the year if I recall correctly was against the Tigers in Detroit. But he really hasn’t pitched that well for a while.

  13. zmaster September 10th, 2009 at 7:44 pm

    Dr. Zmaster prescribes rest till game 1 of the ALDS

    Gettem m!

  15. Seven September 10th, 2009 at 7:50 pm

    By taking the a schedule the yanks are going to have Verlander pitch more games during the series. That might not be the best thing to do. Joba is going to start in the alcs and world series you might as well let him start in the first round. Especially considering Joba has dominanted the tigers in both starts this year.

  16. pat September 10th, 2009 at 7:50 pm

    I’d like to thank the Yankees for having an off day on the first day all the kids were back at school.

    I got soooo much done!

  17. Betsy September 10th, 2009 at 7:50 pm

    Excellent news…….hopefully D-Rob will be able to work off his rust in just the few games he’ll be able to get in.

  18. The Ghost September 10th, 2009 at 7:51 pm

    I’m factoring Robertson out of the playoffs. The time off will weaken his arm and probably will mess with his control – which has been his problem in the past, just look what the time off has done to Bruney. The Yankees have to figure out if Aceves is going to be Joba’s playoff caddy or is he going to be the 7th inning guy because when it comes to trust in that bullpen, right now it’s Mo, Hughes, Aceves and hope.

    “u can’t be a Yankees fan and a Patriots fan. It doesn’t work that way. If you claim this you’re a fraud.”

    Fraud huh? PD where are you from? Do you have any concept of actually leaving a home and moving to another part of the country, have you ever done this? First of all One sport has nothing to do with the other, no players cross over obviously.
    People move and thus become fans in different cities. Some people want to keep a part of their past by rooting for their hometown team while adapting to their new home and choosing a new team to root for.
    If they’re different sports who the hell cares.

    I happen to know at least 5 yanks/pats fans. Most of them are from CT. I happen to be from NY but moved to Bos at 13.

    Using blanket “fraud” statements is just plain ignorant dude, get a grip.

  21. Jack West Jr September 10th, 2009 at 7:53 pm

    Great news for Robertson. He’s really become an asset out of the pen for the Yanks this year, and if healthy, gives them another reliable weapon in the playoffs to build a bridge to Rivera.

    Hopefully the rest does him good, and with the rosters expanded, the Yankees can take it slow with him and build him up to be ready for the playoffs.

  22. S.A.--Serenity Now September 10th, 2009 at 7:53 pm

    Good news for David and the Yankees

  23. Joe September 10th, 2009 at 7:53 pm

    I would take Schedule B and let Joba pitch game 4. If the Yanks are down 2-1 you obviously go with CC instead on short rest. The Tigers are really weak after their 1-2 and their lineup is just as weak. Joba did just fine shutting them down the last time he faced Detroit.

  24. Raymagnetic September 10th, 2009 at 7:54 pm

    Bruney hasn’t been as bad as people think. He’s been shaky but still has pitched well for the most part.

  25. m September 10th, 2009 at 7:54 pm

    lol, pat.

    I just caught up and stepped in that big pile of poop!

    There are several people on this site alone that are fans of both teams. Probably more, but don’t want to be subject to ridicule. I wear my badges proudly. :)

    I’m 1/1 so far this year. Hopefully the Yankees make it 2/2. :)

  26. m September 10th, 2009 at 7:56 pm

    pat,

    Saw your comment and replied, but apparently the filter didn’t like something I said. I don’t know why, harmless enough. :)

    Are we calling football games? A little contest perhaps?

    As much as I hate to say it, Pittsburgh wins tonight.

  27. The Ghost September 10th, 2009 at 7:58 pm

    Raymagnetic, Bruney has pitched well because Girardi has not had to rely on him. Look at last night for example. Bruney couldn’t put a pitch on target once but got lucky with a drive to the deepest part of the ballpark and was bailed out by Coke. I get the sense that we wouldn’t be too happy with Bruney if Girardi didn’t have 3-4 other options to spell him when he was off. I’m hoping it builds his confidence but he hasn’t had a lights out inning since he’s been back has he?

  28. m September 10th, 2009 at 8:00 pm

    lol, pat. I figured it out. It’s the stuff people scoop out of the litter box. And it rhymes with scoop.

    haha. You can call someone a female dog but you can’t use the kiddie word for excrement which is what that comment was.

  30. West Coast Fan September 10th, 2009 at 8:04 pm

    Anyone know how many home runs the opposition has hit at YS this year? I’m interested in seeing the rate of opposing home runs as the season has progressed. I remember in the beginning of the season the Yankees pitching staff being annoyed at the configuration of the park and how it was resulting in more HRs against. Has that rate stood up for the season or has the pitching staff adjusted?

  31. Seven September 10th, 2009 at 8:08 pm

    Bruney has been pitching much better lately. The one thing he needs to do is cut down on the walks that is what is getting him in trouble. Since he pitched those 2 scoreless innings in the 15 inning game Girardi has been using him more often. Glad he is getting regular work Bruney and Eiland should use the rest of the season to iron out his command issues.

    Yeah, it was strange because Pete had put up a new thread and there was (1) comment.

    It was probably this:

    “Hello? Where is everyone?” and it was probably Pete.

  35. MattNC September 10th, 2009 at 8:16 pm

    Robertson pitched on Sep 5. Giving him 10 days off means Sep 16 for resumption of throwing. Giving him 14 days off means Sep 20th.

  36. Stevie September 10th, 2009 at 8:16 pm

    It’ll be interesting to see if the Tigers go with Washburn in game 2. Going by the book you’d go Righty, Lefty, Righty.

    Of course if the rangers win the wild card then the tigers battle the halos.

    Terrific news on Robertson. I love the fact that his stock has risen this year. He had a high strkeout ratio in the minors and I am thrilled to see that it translated.

  43. William Buckner September 10th, 2009 at 8:41 pm

    Going to see Dr. Andrews isn’t the death sentence it once was.

  44. David September 10th, 2009 at 8:48 pm

    It sounds like the doctors have eliminated some bad possibilities, but they don’t have a definite diagnosis on the cause of Robertson’s arm problem. So, they con’t know how long it will take to heal. I’m hoping for the best but won’t be surprised if Robertson is unavailable or ineffective for the rest of the season.

  46. Giuseppe Franco September 10th, 2009 at 8:57 pm

    Andrews is the best there is in diagnosing problems and treating them. I’m quite sure he knows what he’s talking about.

    Robertson will be fine.

    It’s worth noting that Robertson’s elbow didn’t hurt him when he threw the ball. He said it “felt tight” the day after he pitched.

    We’re not talking about sharp pain like Bruney and Nady suffered this season.

  47. Jeremy September 10th, 2009 at 8:59 pm

    How do you know if he will be ineffective for the rest of the season ? Robertson was pitching with the tightness just fine so what makes you think that now he is going to be ineffective ?

  48. Jeremy September 10th, 2009 at 9:01 pm

    People worry too much. He will be fine and the pen will be fine. The Yankees have one of the best bullpen’s in the majors. And in the postseason you only need a few arms from the pen.

    Robertsons poor mechanics will end in surgery. Probably tj.

  51. MG September 10th, 2009 at 9:24 pm

    how much bullpen depth do you think the Yankees need in the post season? The Yankees top 3 starters all average over 6 innings per start, if there is a pitching change needed in the 7th to face a lefty it will be either Coke or Marte, if it’s a righty Hughes will be in there-he can pitch multiple innings in this situation since there are off days throughout the ALDS and 2 off days in the ALCS and WS. Bruney has been pretty good pitching in situational opportunities, the first batters are only hitting .129 against him when he comes in.

    If Robertson gets back for the ALDS that’s great, but having him for the ALCS would be more than enough IMO.

    (Trying to come up with a name to differentiate myself from the other Mel, so I’ll use my USAF nickname.)

    OPEN POST TO ALL THE LOHUD YANKEES BLOGGERS:

    I want to say how truly enjoyable it has been to read all of your posts today on this blog!!! There has been a noticeable lack of name calling. Calling someone a moron, idiot, etc. just seems so unnecessary, and if you think about it is a form of abuse, however mild you may think it is. It is just not very much fun to see it all time.

    Note Pete’s comment: “UPDATE, 1:21 p.m.: Some great discussions on the blog about the topic, make sure to check them out. People are reasonably discussing baseball on the internet. It’s a miracle.” (I’m not trying to put words in Pete’s mouth, but it is worth noting that he recognized this difference and in a way applauded.)

    For 27 years I defended the right of all Americans to be able to state their opinions. However, it is not a right to be able to say what you want just anywhere. Just as it is privilege, not a right, to be allowed to drive on our streets, it is a privilege to be able to post on The LoHud Yankees Blog. It would be nice, even morally encouraging, to see the posters on this blog be able to police themselves, and each other, to refrain from name calling, however warranted we may think it is at the time. Remember it actually is a form of abuse. Do we really need to be abusive toward one another?

    Having learned from my own mistakes, one of my personal sayings is: “Smart, intelligent people still do dumb things some of the time. The WISE person rarely does”. There are obviously intelligent people on this blog who have a reputation of making cogent and well thought out arguments for their point of view. However, some of them unfortunately hurt their own reputation by their name calling. Not a very wise thing to do. If I could pass on one bit of wisdom I have learned in my 60 years it would be: “It is better to intelligent and wise than just intelligent”.

    Pete produces a great blog for us. He deserves our respect to conduct ourselves in an adult manner. In doing so, we would raise the bar for conduct on a blog, make it more enjoyable for all, and truly make this the best blog in sports. We owe it to him to be better than we have been.

    Thank you Pete and thank you and best wishes to all the LoHud Yankees bloggers.

    Respectfully submitted,
    Maverick (Mel, USAF Col(Ret))

    Hey I’m a big Yankee fan and also a Pats fan and I’m no fraud- its been that way since the ’70′s- so there’s no sense in calling a bandwagon fan of either team.

    Erica,

    It did get really quiet in here.

    I have a new topic – which I don’t think is premature. If you can attend only 1 or 2 postseason games, which would you make plans to attend?

    You’d probably like to attend the clinching WS game, right? The problem is you don’t know which that will be, and odds are it will be away. I will be traveling from out of state, which adds more complications. Should I pick the opening round of the playoffs, or wait til the WS? I also have a very bad track record in the postseason (WS game 6 2003, and the last game in 07).

    Any thoughts?

    Have you added anything of worth in this forum?

    There’s a reason Andrews is the be all end all in diagnosing these kinds of injuries. He’s recognized by everyone in sports medicine as the go-to guy in this field.

    Complain and worry about Robertson when the best medical mind in sports medicine says to worry about it.

    As long as Robertson doesn’t have pain when he pitches and doesn’t have any structural damage as Andrews confirmed, he’ll be fine for the postseason.

    To me the injuries aren’t an excuse for not playing fundamental baseball.

    Take Pagan for instance. Two base running mistakes. He doesn’t know the amount of outs. I wonder if Jerry will call him that guy like he did when Church missed third.

  70. Clare September 10th, 2009 at 10:39 pm

    Maverick,

    I know you asked Erica, not me, for feedback, but since I was also trying to get a conversation started, here’s my 2 cents:

    There really isn’t anything to add to your post. I think you made a great point, and said it well.

    I agree that this place is much more pleasant when people are civil, and aren’t starting flame wars or cleverly putting others down, and most of us can use a timely reminder like yours. So thanks.

  71. The Ghost September 10th, 2009 at 10:43 pm

    Giuseppi, the only thing you seem add to this forum is your amazing ability to interminably 2nd guess and attack the 2nd guessers. Stick to hair care products.

    The fact that Robertson was sent to Andrews tells me the Yankees are seriously concerned about Robertson. Andrews less than stellar track record with Wang and Pavano recently gives me cause for concern.

  72. jennifer September 10th, 2009 at 10:44 pm

    Maybe the Yankees sent him to Andrews to clear his mind? Maybe he requested the visit?

  73. jennifer September 10th, 2009 at 10:45 pm

    Ghost,

    Please don’t even talk about Carl. I don’t believe he was really ever injured. Injured butt, give me a break, he always had some aliment that prevented him from pitching, until now of course when he is out of NY.

  74. Erica - always OPPC September 10th, 2009 at 10:47 pm

    Maverick-

    While I am enjoying the vacation from name calling and fighting I think the general happy state of the Yankees and the topic at hand deserve most of the credit.

    Its hard to call someone an idiot when the discussion is “Who are the greatest Yankee”. Calling someone names because they think Mantle was a better Yankee than DiMaggio is like calling them an idiot because they said apples are a better fruit than oranges.

    I am just glad the Yankees are playing such great baseball and that I can see Derek Jeter play ball every night :-)

    Thank you Nick. Actually I am Northern California boy born and bred. I graduated from HS in San Jose then attended UC Berkeley for my Doctor of Optometry and later PhD. Eleven years in all at Berkeley and what a great experience. I love NC and spend my retirement mostly playing golf and fly fishing in far northern CA. I live in an RV and travel extensively in it. Maybe we can meet up some time at a game.

  76. Tom in N.J. September 10th, 2009 at 10:49 pm

    “As of Thursday, Jeter is hitting .330/.397/.470. Thirty-five-year-old shortstops aren’t supposed to do this. Other than the peerless Honus Wagner, the only shortstop who has ever even hit .300/.350/.450 at this age or older was Pee Wee Reese, who did it in 1954. You almost wish that Jeter had been playing quietly all these years in Detroit or Kansas City, because people would just now be discovering him, and the praise would carry some weight. As is, the superlatives that his play deserves are totally void of meaning.”

    I have a terrible postseason record as well. I went to Game 1 of the 1996 ALDS. They lost that game and Derek Jeter had a terrible game, leaving a bunch of men on base. Definitely not a preview of the clutch the postseason appearences we would later see.

    I then had tickets to Game 5 of the 2006 ALDS against Detroit. Unfortunately, that game never occured.

    I vowed to never attend another playoff game after that :-)

  78. Maverick (Mel) September 10th, 2009 at 10:54 pm

    Erica,

    I wasn’t referring to the topic of the day which is pretty benign to be doing name calling. But to all the other days when the Yankees are doing so well and yet the name calling seems rampant. I just think the posters owe it to Pete to act a little more adult.

    I do so love to watch the Yankees, win or lose, and getting to watch Jeter have a special year…well its as special as it gets.

    Maybe the Yankees sent him to Andrews just in case. Robertson plays a big role in the pen so maybe they are just being safe. They said he should be fine so relax and stop acting like a Sox fan.

    I agree completely. I can never understand why people insist on arguing and name calling, particularly to posters they do not like. Its much, much easier and more civilized to just simply scroll past those people’s comments.

    Thank you Clare,

    Sorry, addressing it to only Erica was a mistake on my part. I really didn’t mean it that way but I am new to blogging.

    Any comments to create some sort of discussion, even a grass roots effort to cut down the name calling, is greatly appreciated, either agree or disagree. I can take the heat.

    Thank you again.

  84. Nick in SF September 10th, 2009 at 11:05 pm

    Maverick Mel, it would be my pleasure. The other mel dropped me way way down on her commenters-she’d-like-to-meet list, so I’m glad at least one Mel still likes me. ;)

    I still get my eyes checked at UC, you just reminded me I’m overdue for an exam. :shock:

  86. Giuseppe Franco September 10th, 2009 at 11:09 pm

    Ghost,

    The most respected surgeon in sports medicine just said that Robertson will be fine with some rest and there is no structural damage.

    All the top athletes in the world go to this guy for his expertise and make enormous career decisions based on this guy’s opinion.

    Yet you come in here and say that Robertson is out for the postseason. Funny stuff.

    I guess we’ll see find out soon enough who was right – you or Dr. Andrews.

  87. m September 10th, 2009 at 11:11 pm

    Wait. Maverick’s a guy? :shock:

  88. Nick in SF September 10th, 2009 at 11:11 pm

    If you google “word press emoticons” you will get a good list.

    Mostly you put some code inside of a set of colons.

    Like : mad : becomes :mad: when you remove the spaces.

    Alternately, a few are just a colon or semi-colon next to a parentheses.

    ; ) with the space becomes ;)

    : ( without the space becomes the way I feel when Erica says goodnight. :(

    Maverick:

    Good post. But sometimes there is a lesson to be learned in some of the better arguments between two posters with varying opinions. Sometimes the posts are dominated by one person who thinks he/she is always correct.

    So when someone equally knowledgable takes that person on, the argument is interesting to follow. I worked in a law firm so I do enjoy a well-written argument.

    For one thing, it gives a second opinion on the topic for fans to digest instead of assuming the first poster is always correct.

    Thank you for your service and enjoy your justly reserved retirment.

    So your the other Mel. If you don’t mind my asking, what is your full name?

    My name is Melvin. As the story goes, my older brother was named Billy after my dad, Bill (not William). So when I was born my mother decided she wanted a child named after her. Her name is Melva. So I am at least named after a woman, does that count.

    You just stumbled onto one of the inside jokes of the blog.

    Some people thought I was a guy and made a heh, heh joke to me about some starlet’s female anatomy, so I felt compelled to set them straight. I simply said, “mel is NOT for Melvin”. I didn’t want to give my real name because I live in a “small world” place. So people guessed and I deflected and even said it could be Melva.

    Oh, the funny. Thanks for that. Good memories.

    JJCFF,

    I agree totally with your observation, and I do enjoy reading and carrying on a good spirited discussion. Believe me, I have had my share. Won some, lost some (er..well at least overruled).

    I was just hoping we could all make them just a bit less acrimonious. When your trying to make a point it doesn’t help much when you start out with…”you are an idiot, how can you be so stupid, if you ever went to a baseball game you would know what I am talking about, etc. etc.

    But I agree with your point.

  111. The Ghost September 10th, 2009 at 11:48 pm

    Giuseppi, as I said before, there are no respected surgeons when it comes to sports elbows. Everyone says the elbow is a mystery – everyone – even Andrews will tell you that. If you bothered to read my post you’d see that I’m more concerned about the rest messing with Robertson’s mechanics and rendering him as a marginal piece of the puzzle than the elbow knocking him out of the playoffs but of course you didn’t read that did you? Maybe you should take a reading comprehension course and you won’t get yourself in so much trouble on internet forums.

  112. Giuseppe Franco September 10th, 2009 at 11:48 pm

    We typically see very very few postponements around baseball during August and September.

    Teams don’t want to play anymore doubleheaders during a pennant race and certainly don’t want to go to work on an off day when the regular season is winding down.

    They will wait these games out all night if they have to this weekend.

    I predict no postponements.

  113. rb September 10th, 2009 at 11:50 pm

    Maverick,

    I’ve only been posting a little awhile, but I’ve been reading for a year. Excellent post, very well said. I have learned a great deal from many of the posters on this blog. I admit many of the metrics go over my head.

    I must admit to some frustration reading some of the posts that go back and forth, especially when they include name-calling.

    I tend to roll my eyes and scroll past those posts because some of these opinions are strongly held and rarely can either side see validity in the other’s arguments.

    Ultimately, it’s about respecting one another. One of the best things about this country is our freedom to have differing opinions.

    Much gratitude for your service.

  114. Giuseppe Franco September 10th, 2009 at 11:51 pm

    Ghost,

    I read what you said and it’s all nonsensical.

    Robertson will have a good two weeks to work the kinks and rust out once he has rested his 14 days.

    That’s more than enough time to get ready for October. He’s being shelved for 10-14 days, not 10-14 weeks.

  115. Clare September 10th, 2009 at 11:52 pm

    This has been such an amazing season. I’m already anticipating the depression I’m going to feel once the season ends, no matter how it ends.

    I know Peter has said he doesn’t want to think about next year yet, but just because it’s a slow night – how long do y’all think their current dominance can last?

    My guess would be as long as the core starting pitching remains healthy. Obviously age is an issue with the position players, but as long as no one falls off a cliff productivity-wise (which I don’t anticipate), I think if Sabathia, Burnett, Hughes and Joba can stay healthy (and Pettitte for at least one more year), I think the team is going to be great for the next 3-4 years at least.

  118. m September 11th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Clare,

    I was just thinking about that today. Usually a team goes through its slumps. When will ours come? I came up with who knows? They seem to have found a way to avoid the negative energy that comes with losing streaks, and I think that helps them avoid extending those streaks.

    Remember when people complained about every little thing Girardi did? It wasn’t too long ago. He’s found the right balance between loose and focused. And his handling of the bullpen has been exemplary.

    People and pundits have mentioned Washington and Scoscia. But if this team goes north of 100 wins, I think the nod should go to Girardi for MOY.

    And, to answer your question. Andy back next season, and if Phil and Joba can hold their own this team will be good. No matter who we have in the OF. :)

  119. m September 11th, 2009 at 12:02 am

    Giuseppi, say what you want but when a pitcher is in a good place and gets injured it’s the rare bird that comes right back to that place immediately upon return. He might need some time to get his mechanics back and I just hope the Yankees have enough garbage games left by that time.

  123. Clare September 11th, 2009 at 12:09 am

    m,

    I agree. I think the position player holes can be filled a lot easier than holes in the starting rotation (as the last several years have proven).

    The infield is set for years and years to come, and the outfield holes are manageable. I am among the legions who want Damon back at least for the next year or two, so I don’t think they need any major acquisitions. And if I’m wrong, a free agent outfielder isn’t too hard (or expensive) to acquire these days.

  124. J-Dawg--Veintisiete en... let's try '09! September 11th, 2009 at 12:12 am

    Glad that Robertson received some fairly good news today. Could have been a lot worse.

    Thankfully the Yankees have a substantial enough lead that they can afford to rest Robertson without it becoming a huge blow.

    The Titans had better shore up their pass rush. These AFC QBs will have them for lunch. The real action starts on Sunday for me. The ‘Fins head to Hotlanta.

  125. Clare September 11th, 2009 at 12:14 am

    m,

    And you’re right about Girardi as well. I think he’s been amazing this year.

    The best thing that happened to Girardi this year was Torre’s book. I think that book tarnished Torre’s halo a whole lot, especially with the media. I think that gave Girardi a lot more breathing room in the beginning of the year when they got off to a slow start.

    Winning solves everything, so eventually things would have turned around for Girardi, but I think the diminishing of the Torre mystique made the beginning of the season a lot easier for Girardi.

  129. m September 11th, 2009 at 12:21 am

    Clare,

    Absolutely!

    And I can’t help but think that the huge influx of new personalities has also helped. Not only are they contributing to the winning, but they put their fingerprints on the clubhouse right away. That allowed the Yankees to unbutton the top couple of buttons a bit. Of course they’re down to their shorts right now, but as long as they’re winning who cares. :)

    Thanks for the web site link, lot of emiticons there, thanks.

    I had to goggle “snarky”, I had never heard that word before. It says: It means short tempered or irritable. To irritate.

    Hey I’m retired so have no reason to be either. By the way, my other nickname was Mellow Mel, not much fazed me. When you know something is going to go wrong, because it just does, as in Murphy’s Law, its a bit easier to keep an even keel about life.

  131. Clare September 11th, 2009 at 12:29 am

    m,

    Interesting that his teammates nominated Alex for the Marvin Miller award. There are plenty of players on the team who do lots of community service work (Jeter, Swish, Jorge just to name a few), so I think it says a lot that ARod was nominated.

    I suspect (or maybe hope) that his peers appreciate the hit he took by becoming the scapegoat for the steroid era. He never complained about the leak of the list, or the fact the feds illegally seized the list, or that the union didn’t destroy it in the first place. He took a whole lot of grief for what he said and how he said it, but hopefully, in retrospect, more people recognize that he took the high road, and didn’t try to deflect any blame to those who were just as guilty as he was.

  132. m September 11th, 2009 at 12:32 am

    Oh we love the word snark, but we don’t like snark itself.

    I think it means rudeness? A pointed remark aimed at someone?

    The emoticon can avoid confusion between snark and a joke.

    You never heard snarky? Wow. And it’s usage isn’t exactly what you found. When used online it generally implies sarcasm or mocking more than irritability, I believe.

  134. tennore September 11th, 2009 at 12:35 am

    Glad Robertson is not finished for the year…You can always use a reliever who can strike people out. I obviously can’t read all the posts, but has anyone pointed out that not only is Jeter having a real career resurgence, but how effectively has he transformed into a leadoff hitter-maybe the best in the game. How is that for stepping up…But hey, it’s just another thing that makes him a special one of a kind player.

    Jeter reached a new high(low?) on the “it’s not about numbers” meter tonight.

    Just saw on the news Bruce Beck interview him before the Posada Foundation dinner.

    Beck asked him “so how do you feel the day after?” Jeter responds, “the day after what?”

    Really?

    pat,

    Let’s see if Jeter pulls that line when someone asks how Jeter feels the day after (getting married). Someone might break her perfectly manicured nails.

    Hey, wanted to thank you for the culinary tip the other day.

    It worked out okay. I had made the most lovely caramel sauce last week because I had taken to the caramel fraps seved by the baristas at that evil coffee place. While googling recipes I saw some with half-n-half, so I thought I’d try a lower fat version. As you know it failed. :(

    But with your help, it turned out fine almost like a praline. I can’t drizzle it, but it worked out fine in the drink itself.

    I always see (and have said myself) stuff like, “there’s no need to be snarky”.

    Snark doesn’t seem to be funny at all.

    But I think the smiley face can help avoid coming across as snarky.

  142. Clare September 11th, 2009 at 12:47 am

    pat,

    It’s really interesting how the media doesn’t turn on Derek when he plays them like that. We know some of them can be thin-skinned, but for some reason they don’t mind the way Derek treats them. I don’t think anyone is better at letting a reporter know when they’ve asked a stupid question, or even just one he doesn’t want to answer.

    Peter posted the audio of Jeter’s press conference in ST in 07 after ARod’s “we’re not really friends anymore” press conference, and someone here commented that it seemed like the reporters were afraid of Jeter. It’s just weird.

  143. m September 11th, 2009 at 12:50 am

    Back to snarky – there are many different meanings, which explains the discrepancy. Here’s the one that I believe pat and I were thinking of:

    Adjective – Any language that contains quips or comments containing sarcastic or satirical witticisms intended as blunt irony. Usually delivered in a manner that is somewhat abrupt and out of context and intended to stun and amuse. Origin: Snark=”snide remark”.

    Is there a story here?

    ———————–

    Not exactly, but related. I wasn’t a pilot. I was an Optometrist to start with (1974-81), then the USAF selected me for a PhD in Corneal Physiology and I went into research.

    In my career I bucked the system more times than I can count. Early on, in getting myself credentialed to prescribe ocular therapeautics while stationed in Turkey only 2 yrs after graduating. Talk about OJT big time. Medical Headquarters Europe Ok’d it but kept it hush hush to not riled up the Opthalmologists. When I got to England I pushed for a greater role for ODs in treating ocular injuries during mass casualties and won, it was implemented across Europe. After getting my PhD, I pushed for a major change for the visual error requirements for entry level pilots and got them relaxed a lot. After getting into management, I pushed for and got a major reorganization of the units doing night vision goggle, helmet mounted display, and flat panel display development into a single unit. Today, the services have the HMD in the new Joint Strike Fighter, a first. Just a sample of how maverick I was and came to be known and called.

    Game 1 in the books already.

    On the eve of what we hope is a record-breaking day, here’s a good, no make that great article on Jeter. (you just have to ignore a couple of snarky NYC comments)

    http://www.azcentral.com/sport.....jeter.html

  152. Maverick (Mel) September 11th, 2009 at 1:46 am

    Clare,

    Sorry, I was trying to type fast. Ocular therapeutics and eye medications. Optometrists (symbol is OD) in the US have only been authorized in the state legislatures to prescribe eye medications for about the last 10-15 years. I was the only Optometrist in all of Turkey from 1976-mid 78 and was “unofficially” asked to make medical diagnosis for which eye medications was needed to treat numerous patients with eye infections. After doing it successfully for about a year I submitted an official request to be officially authorized to prescribe a wide range of eye medications and it was approved. I was just a low grade lieutenant at the time. It was considered a “unique, site specific authorization” and when I transferred to England the record was scrubbed and all reference to it were destroyed.

    In visual error requirements I meant to say refractive error and visual acuity standards. At the time (I was now only a Major), around 1988, only USAF Academy graduates with 20/20 acuity and small amounts of refractive error could go to pilot school. Thus, many top level graduates were being denied becoming pilots. By almost 20-25% of all fighter pilots started wearing glasses within 2-3 yrs after becoming pilots. There was no data to support the claim that pilots had to have “perfect” vision. It was a fallacy, with glasses they were just as good at aircraft detection, and sometimes better, than pilots without glasses. I was persistent, went against the grain, and pushed this all the way up to high levels of command. In retrospect, it remains one of my proudest accomplishments. Today, many men and women can now become fighter pilots that before would have been denined.

    I can’t seem to give a short answer. Still have to learn how to blog. Regards.

    “u can’t be a Yankees fan and a Patriots fan. It doesn’t work that way. If you claim this you’re a fraud.””

    Hey my dad is a Red Sox fan & a NY Giants fan. He isn’t a fraud. They’re two different sports. I don’t see anything wrong with it.

    We’ve avoided slumps because we have several stoppers.

    We haven’t had that since 2003.

    We also have an offense that just can’t be stopped for very long.

    Teams that don’t experience prolonged slumps get their cure from mini-ones from the next day’s starting pitcher, and so on.

    Is it just me, or was Joba wearing a cap about three sizes too small the other night?

    For the ones who fear the good pitchers the Yankees will face in the play offs, take note of what he says about that in this article.

    This is great news regarding Dave Robertson. If 10-14 days rest is all it takes then he won’t lose too much of his velocity/location. Bruney on the other hand missed close to 2 months earlier this season and has taken a long time getting his velocity and location back.

    I guess this means that they will only use Robertson for 1 inning at a time in the playoffs, but thats OK…I don’t think they will need him for multiple innings.

    Thanks for the link to this article. I find it funny that, at the All Star break, Red Sox fans claimed that the Yankees couldn’t beat any good teams. It sounds like the pot was calling the kettle…

    My son and I are making our annual trek today down to the Bronx to see a ballgame in person. 1) Any chance of us seeing baseball tonight or are we looking at a day/night doubleheader on Sat/Sun? 2) Any parking suggestions for someone who hasn’t been to the new house yet? Are the lots right off the Deegan still available?

    Weird factoid: Last year, our one and only game in the Stadium was against the Rays when Jeter set the record for most hits in the history of Yankee Stadium. Now, we could possibly see, in our one game this year, Jeter set this hits record. Dumb luck. Then again, it might rain.

    Egad, Joba’s hat size is the least of his problems right now. I predicted that the bill on his hat would be the next topic of the Joba naysayers. Somebody did bring up the bill a few days ago. Predictable.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
