TIME/TV: 1:05 p.m./Not in New York

WEATHER: I didn’t know it was possible to be this sunny.

UMPIRES: HP Mike Reilly, 1B Jerry Layne, 2B Jeff Nelson, 3B Toby Basner

ON THE LINE: Not a lot of borderline, trying-to-win-a-spot players in this one. This game is more about CC Sabathia getting his last tune-up and seeing Pat Venditte pitch from both sides.

UPDATE, 1:17 p.m.: This batting fifth thing seems to be working out so far. Robinson Cano just doubled off the top of the wall in right-center, scoring Nick Swisher and giving the Yankees a 1-0 lead in the first inning.

UPDATE, 1:34 p.m.: Sabathia, of course, struck out on three pitches. He basically just stood in the box, not even looking as if he were going to swing the bat. You just know that was killing him.

UPDATE, 1:40 p.m.: Robinson Cano is going to win a Gold Glove this year. That’s my prediction. He just made a great play to end the second inning, catching a shallow pop-up on the run, then turning to throw to first base to double off Matt Diaz. CC Sabathia just stood on the mound pointing to Cano after the play.

UPDATE, 2:28 p.m.: Brandon Laird has been a lot better defensively than I expected. By the way, Venditte is getting loose in the bullpen.

UPDATE, 2:32 p.m.: That’s it for Sabathia this spring. Not the best numbers, but I doubt anyone is concerned. Here’s Venditte.

    you need to change that TV/Time thingy Chad.

  2. Chip March 30th, 2010 at 12:51 pm

    The only thing on the line here is the Yankees getting another look at Kevin Russo at ss. It’s really a battle of him vs. Nunez vs. Corona to see who gets called up if the Yankees need a utility infielder at somepoint during the season.

  3. m March 30th, 2010 at 12:53 pm

    Why don’t they schedule the split squads earlier in the season.

    Making these kids deal with assignment more than once. Poor tings. ;)

    And how many times have we faced the Braves? And why no Sox? Do they have to separate the two?

  4. Phranchise March 30th, 2010 at 12:54 pm

    I don’t think this game is on MASN (or any other channel)

  5. pat March 30th, 2010 at 12:54 pm

    GB

    CC and AJ weren’t even referring to the postseason. They both referenced the 1st AB HR that gave everyone the comfort level that they just had to play their game and everything would be okay.

  6. Derek Leader March 30th, 2010 at 12:55 pm

    it seems like the only teams they’ve faced are the Tigers Braves and O’s.

  7. becca March 30th, 2010 at 12:56 pm

    Derek Leader – how do you forget the PHILLIES?

  8. m March 30th, 2010 at 12:56 pm

    Pirates?

  9. Chip March 30th, 2010 at 12:57 pm

    M –

    I don’t know exactly why the Yankees don’t really face the Sox (or Mets for that matter) that often in Spring Training – maybe just the travel distance, but as for facing the Braves a lot – well it’s the result of so many teams moving to Arizona.

    I think the only teams left in Florida are:
    Houston
    NYY
    NYM
    Boston
    Bal
    Atl
    Was
    Tor
    Phi
    Tampa
    Detroit

    and they’re all pretty well spread out

    M, one thing that I think has been made clear from recent days is that they are 100% committed to Phil; they seem really happy with the progress he made with his change. I mentioned yesterday that Joe was quoted a couple of weeks ago talking about the importance of the kids trusting he and Eiland and that Phil did trust them (this was in reference to their emphasizing the importance of developing the change and even throwing it where he’s not comfortable yet). He probably seems like a relief coming on the heels of high-maintenance Joba, lol. I admit that, in recent times, it always seemed like Joba was the main priority for the Yankees; I’m glad that I was wrong. Don’t misunderstand me – Joba is certainly a priority.

  11. Doreen - 2010 GTLU March 30th, 2010 at 12:59 pm

    m -

    That was a good listen. Thanks. As for Michael Kay sounding whiny – he usually does when he’s asking questions like this. :)

    Important to note is Cashman’s comment that they have more information than the fans on their players. Also, when talking about Joba and the 100 mph fastball, he seemed to stop himself short before he attributed that to any particular incident (ahem) and did not say the word “injury” (Michael Kay had referenced the game when Joba went down in 2008).

  12. stuckey [knock, knock, knocking on heaven's door] March 30th, 2010 at 12:59 pm

    “Kay has it fixed in his brain that Phil is nothing special as a starter”

    Maybe Kay doesn’t put Hughes in that category of talents worth waiting on?

    Seriously, you’re not seeing this?

    Before you say it, my response to m’s comment was nit-picky. :wink:

    Ok Stuckey, fine. You win.

  17. Nick in SF March 30th, 2010 at 1:03 pm

    pat, how could I tease you after I’d already picked the same nit?

  18. Boston Dave - XXVII March 30th, 2010 at 1:03 pm

    5 days until Opening Night!

    can’t wait. I really hope CC has a good feel for his pitches today so he’s ready for Sunday night.

    I’d love to start the season off with a series win in Boston.

  19. becca March 30th, 2010 at 1:04 pm

    just because people (IE, me) think Joba should be starting this year (he should be given every chance to start without the “Joba rules”) doesn’t mean they don’t think Hughes is going to be a special talent too.

  20. Boston Dave - XXVII March 30th, 2010 at 1:04 pm

    I’m also looking forward to the Yanks facing Lackey at Fenway.

    Many Boston fans and media are about the same or worse as the Yanks fans/media…

    they will panic if Lackey gets shelled in his first start :)

    Here’s hoping to a shellacking of Lackey by the Yanks offense.

  21. Joe (Utica) March 30th, 2010 at 1:06 pm

    Does anyone have a link to listen to the game on-line???

  22. m March 30th, 2010 at 1:07 pm

    becca,

    Did you listen to the Cashman/Kay I linked in the last thread? It’s a good listen. It won’t persuade or disuade anyone.

    But it will confirm that Joba is/has been the unsolvable puzzle.

    And I think for now, they’re going to put it on the side. And if there’s any inspiration they’ll pick it up again.

    Cashman was big on there’s so much talent that they have to let the cream rise to the top. Jobs just can’t be handed out. Not only to do you have to earn the job. You have to earn the right to keep it.

  25. Carl March 30th, 2010 at 1:10 pm

    Wow Heyward isn’t playing. With CC not hitting, Pat is the only reason to watch today.

  26. pat March 30th, 2010 at 1:10 pm

    I vote that there should be a Jewish Holiday every week. A bunch of my clients are off today so my phone isn’t ringing off the hook.

    Too bad the game isn’t on TV. I might have been able to watch alot of it with the sound on instead of on mute. :sad:

  27. Carl March 30th, 2010 at 1:11 pm

    Cano rbi double

    MLB.TV vs. MLB for iPhone -

    has anyone gotten the MLB iPhone app?

    It’s $15 and I think you can watch all the games all season on your phone.

    For unfortunate peeps like me who can’t get Yankee games on TV, I’m trying to find the best solution.

    I usually get MLB.TV but it’s $20/month so if i I can save…

    Thanks!

  34. Betsy -Romine wasn't built in a day March 30th, 2010 at 1:14 pm

    Cano is going to have a great year….

  35. tk March 30th, 2010 at 1:14 pm

    I was just browsing Yahoo! Sports and came across an AL East preview. After reading it, I can’t help but wonder if the analysts and experts of other sports are as misinformed and seemingly biased as with MLB? One of the two guys doing this preview, Dave Brown, comes off as being very partial toward the Rays. He is predicting, for the second straight year, that the Yankees won’t even make the playoffs. That in itself isn’t totally indefensible (I believe it to be wholly incorrect, but nevertheless), because you can always point to their age and injury risk; however, he states “even if the Yankees stay healthy, they still won’t have enough to surpass the Rays and Red Sawx.” More specifically, he proves his unfamiliarity with the Yankees’ roster when discussing their options should Mo get injured and Joba close, “That leaves Chan Ho Park, Damaso Marte, Sergio Mitre, Boone Logan protecting the leads.” Dave Robertson? Alfredo Aceves? No wonder he thinks BOS has the deepest pen, he doesn’t even know who is in the Yankees’ bullpen. A couple of other nuggets of wisdom: “They better hope CC Sabathia goes eight every time, and that Hughes transforms immediately. And that Vazquez — who got some deserved love for NL Cy Young last year — can replicate that effort in the American League, where he’s decidedly a lot closer to average.” Complete and utter ignorance…

  36. CB March 30th, 2010 at 1:15 pm

    Cano is completely locked in right now. Another wonderful at bat with men on base.

    Cano got ahead in the count again as he did last night and forced the pitch on Cano’s terms. That’s a large part of the battle in any at bat.

    Kawakami tried to get Cano to chase and Cano didn’t. Finally Kawakami had to throw a strike. He left the ball out over the plate and just absolutely crushed the ball. He put a great swing on the ball and it looked like it was gone. He crushed it.

  37. Joe from Long Island March 30th, 2010 at 1:16 pm

    Nice to see Robbie hitting with RISP, even if it’s in ST. Hopefully, this builds confidence for him going into the season. If he can do the job hitting after Alex….

    Ledger_Yankees This place is amazing: There’s a sound effect played for every action; fly out, strikeout, foul ball, tobacco spit. Everything

    That sounds more annoying than cowbells.

    Melky trying to make the big guy run.

  41. Jerkface March 30th, 2010 at 1:18 pm

    The ball Cano hit would be a HR in a real park. It hit off something over the wall and bounced back in.

  42. Zach March 30th, 2010 at 1:19 pm

    Ground rule double for Melky to lead off…

  43. m March 30th, 2010 at 1:19 pm

    Swisher lucky that was just a ground rule double. Melky could be standing on 3rd.

  51. GeorgeInJax March 30th, 2010 at 1:23 pm

    RE: The Yahoo AL East Preview
    If you compare the Rays Depth Chart:
    http://tampabay.rays.mlb.com/t.....sp?c_id=tb
    They may have a slight edge in the outfield, but the Yanks are better at every infield position & yes that includes Arod over Longoria (some may call that one a push). The starting rotation edge goes to the Yankees & Yanks have a huge advantage in the bullpen. There would have to be a lot of injuries/situations for the Rays to outperform the Yanks & Sox.

  52. Betsy -Romine wasn't built in a day March 30th, 2010 at 1:24 pm

    Escobar K’s to end the inning…

  57. CB March 30th, 2010 at 1:26 pm

    CC’s fastball command was off that first inning. The ball was up and he was missing spots.

  58. tk March 30th, 2010 at 1:27 pm

    “Cano got ahead in the count again as he did last night and forced the pitch on Cano’s terms. That’s a large part of the battle in any at bat.”

    It’s very encouraging to see this approach paying off for him in ST. By seeing good results now, maybe it will be easier for him to exhibit the same level of patience in the regular season. Assuming he’s able to continue this approach throughout the season, just how good do you see the lineup being? Personally, I think the potential of Tex-Arod-Cano is truly special.

    I have it.. and I love it.. the video is really good (assuming the wifi signal is good!) and the stats, audio, news links etc are definitely well worth it. HOWEVER, you only get the video if you have mlb.tv already.. so you don’t save anything. It’s not an alternative, it’s an added extra to your computer mlb.tv account.

    Conflicting reports, maybe he is the same weight?

  62. Frank March 30th, 2010 at 1:28 pm

    “Melky has shown he can play the game.”

    I’ve seen a couple depth charts where he’s not starting for the Braves. I know he’s not going to face lefties very often, but I figured he’d get most of the AB’s in left.

  63. William Buckner March 30th, 2010 at 1:31 pm

    “People are taking the hot Spring by the Rays too seriously.”

    I think the reason that is, is that was their approach in 2008.

  64. Betsy -Romine wasn't built in a day March 30th, 2010 at 1:32 pm

    I do respect the Rays a lot and I have a feeling they will be very good, but I have the healthiest respect for the Yankees. I kind of think it’s dumb for prognosticators to pick against the Yankees just because they don’t want to pick the favorites, but in the end it’s hardly important.

    I just want CC to emerge healthy from this game…..

  65. tk March 30th, 2010 at 1:32 pm

    GeorgeInJax,

    Speaking of Longoria, did you see where DB states that the Rays have the two best players in the division? What about A-Rod, CC, and Lester…

    I agree about the potential for injuries to close the gap. That’s the oddest part, that assuming perfect health he still doesn’t see the Yankees having the talent to matchup up with BOS/TAM. I guess if he keeps picking against the Yankees he’ll eventually be right, then he can have his “I told you so” moment.

  66. becca March 30th, 2010 at 1:32 pm

    So based on ST the ALCS will be Tampa Bay and Cleveland. Yeah.

  67. Phil The Thrill March 30th, 2010 at 1:33 pm

    WB,

    I remember. 2008 was a weird year.

  68. becca March 30th, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    don’t get me wrong, Tampa Bay is a very good team, but how do the Yankees not have the talent to catch up with the Red Sox or the Rays? The Rays weren’t close to as good as the Yankees were last year and they didn’t really make any changes.

  69. m March 30th, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    Braves saying that Matt Diaz will be one of the guys platooning in left with Melky.

  70. Frank March 30th, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    “They may have a slight edge in the outfield, but the Yanks are better at every infield position & yes that includes Arod over Longoria (some may call that one a push).”

    If the Rays use Sean Rodriguez at 2B and Zobrist in RF, then the Rays have a pretty significant edge in the OF.

  71. m March 30th, 2010 at 1:35 pm

    It’s improbable that Zobrist can have another career year. :P

  77. Frank March 30th, 2010 at 1:37 pm

    “The Rays weren’t close to as good as the Yankees were last year and they didn’t really make any changes.”

    Adding Soriano is a pretty big deal, especially if he stays healthy. Rays lost a lot of games in ’09 that can be attributed to deficiencies in their bullpen.

    You may be right Frank, but Granderson isn’t chopped liver either. If Swisher has a productive year & Gardner gets on base, the margin isn’t huge.

    The key team comparison is who has the best overall pitching(runs allowed) & who will score the more team runs & I feel confident the Yanks outclass the Rays in both

    This very much. Maddon seems more open than most other managers to the “relief ace” role as opposed to being locked into a closer, so I guess. I can never look at adding a relief pitcher as a big deal – didn’t change the Mets’ fortunes in 2009…

  95. CB March 30th, 2010 at 1:47 pm

    That’s not a home run Swisher hits last year.

    He looks so much cleaner at the plate now. What a great job Kevin Long looks to have done with him.

    Swisher is much more compact, has fewer moving parts, and gets his front leg down much quicker now than he did last year when his stance was much more open.

    In turn Swisher’s swing – which often got very, very long – looks much shorter and more consistent. Part of why Swisher was so wildly inconsistent last year was due to his swing – it would get ridiculously long and he couldn’t make contact or square pitches up.

    He’s taking pitches back up the middle and the opposite way which he wasn’t doing with his old swing where he was trying to dead pull pitch after pitch.

    Nick is a strong guy and that’s a great example of how a hitter can really take advantage of strength – it’s not by trying to dead pull the ball over and over until you cork screw yourself into the ground. It’s by keeping yourself short and letting your strength help you drive the ball when you need to go the other way.

    It’s a good group. No true #1 type, but at the bottom of their rotation, they’ll be close to as good as anyone. They’re all young, with Shields at 28 the elder statesman, and they’ve got a kid named Hellickson who is generally considered to be among the best 3-5 pitching prospects in the AAA waiting in the wings.

    The problem with the Rays last year is that they started the season awfully. Kazmir killed them, as did their pen, and they were 5-6 games under .500 early.

    They won 2/3 in Boston to open the season, then dropped 6 series in a row I think.

    It will benefit them a lot if they get out in front early. No doubt though, that team is oozing with talent and can pretty much match us across the board except in the bullpen.

    “UPDATE, 1:40 p.m.: Robinson Cano is going to win a Gold Glove this year. That’s my prediction.”

    Mine is top 3 in MVP.

    He can hit .330 with 200 hits, very close to if not 30 hr, and hitting 5th will have 100 rbi or more.

    And high level D, I don’t see it being a stretch.

    “true but they still have nothing to get them to the closer.”

    Dan Wheeler is a good reliever and so is Howell, though I’m not sure he’s healthy. Sonnanstine may be in that mix this year, but probably in more a long relief role. Balfour can throw hard, but he’s somewhat hit or miss. They could use some help there, but they aren’t awful .

  102. becca March 30th, 2010 at 1:52 pm

    Jay – I also think the Rays hit a skid in like late August/early September that COMPLETELY took them out of the race. I just checked; they lost 11 in a row from Sept 3 to Sept 13. They lost five out of six to Boston (when they usually handle Boston quite well) and four in a row to NYY at that time. It really proved they just were not a playoff team, at least in 2009.

  103. tex's friend March 30th, 2010 at 1:55 pm

    Cano always looks good in spring training though. Even in 2008, he was hitting .440 in spring training. im hopeful though that this year will be more like last year, only with a higher average with RISP.

  104. CB March 30th, 2010 at 1:57 pm

    “CC is giving up some bloops now. Fastball command looks a lot better. ”

    He looked much better that inning. Throwing with a nice downwards plane again on his fastball.

    CC’s so good at repeating his delivery that even when he gets a bit out of wack it’s the same thing that happens. Ball always drifts up in the zone. You can just see it when he’s right and when he’s not.

    That’s why he got off to the slow start last year. Ball was up in the zone.

    Let’s hope he’s able to keep things intact and keep the ball down.

  105. Frank March 30th, 2010 at 1:57 pm

    You have it right. Rays were three behind Boston in the Wild Card race after play on 8/25 last year. From that point on, they went 15-22 to finish 11 behind Boston for the WC.

  117. CB March 30th, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    The braves had a lead off double. It was interesting to watch how the inning progressed.

    Yunel Escobar went to the plate with the intention of playing sound fundamental baseball and hitting the ball to the right side.

    Escobar was successful at that. But the pitch he took the other way was a mistake pitch CC left up in the zone. It wasn’t a good pitch – but it was a tough pitch to take the other way. Escobar hit a week ground ball to 2b. Got the guy to third but he didn’t hit the ball well.

    Diaz then gets up and is clearly trying to put the ball in play. He lunges at a first pitch slider – a pitch he never should have swung at. Then he gets tied up inside for strike two. Eventually he lunges at a pitch and hits a soft ground ball back to CC.

    The Braves scored on the past ball and home run. But it was interesting to watch both guys come up after a lead off double and try to do the text book “right thing” and for it to hurt each of them in their respective at bats.

  118. becca March 30th, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    Can’t believe Beckett is actually close to taking a 4 yr deal. He could definetely score a 5 year deal on the open market. Lackey got a 5 yr deal and Beckett is better, healthier, and younger than him.

    Kawakami isn’t great but he’s a decent middle/ back of the rotation starter.

    I think that is where guys really need to scout the approach, not the results for Japanese pitchers. Kawakami’s pitches really lend themselves to be down in the zone.

    I watched all of his highlights recently from last year and check out some of his 6, 7, or 8 IP performances where he K’s a bunch of guys.

  134. Frank March 30th, 2010 at 2:25 pm

    From what I’ve read he wants to stay there, which probably makes it a little eaiser to get something done. I think he fits closer to Lackey and Burnett in the pitching caste system than he does the Sabathias and Halladays. I’d guess the 4 years, which would begin with the 2011 season, would be at a slightly higher annual salary than Lackey’s. Something on the order of $17.5M – $18M.

    I can’t see it. Kawakami has much better stuff. He’s a guy who does a nice job of keeping the ball down in the zone. He throws that very effective split finger pitch and a decent cutter.

    He’s just a qualitatively different pitcher than Igawa who was up in the zone with everything. Kawakami generated 42% ground balls.

    I can’t see Igawa coming close to that were he to go to the NL.

  157. CB March 30th, 2010 at 2:35 pm

    CC’s front side was opening up too soon today, especially on his fast ball. His left shoulder was dragging behind and he wasn’t getting on top of the ball.

    When he does that his pitches move up in the zone. He just can’t stay on top of the ball consistently to keep it down in the zone.

  158. Jerkface March 30th, 2010 at 2:35 pm

    Kawakami has a tighter curve than Igawa too, and his strategy doesn’t consist of “throw everything high in the zone”.

    Igawa really got a lot of benefit in NPB from the more concentrated power distribution in hitters and the bigger strike zone. Also as a lefty that threw 92-94 against a lot of guys that are taught to bat lefty growing up.

  159. Jerkface March 30th, 2010 at 2:38 pm

    Not so. I read an interview in which Mark Newman said the Yanks liked Venditte and would advance him quickly if the kid shows he can pitch.

    His path to the majors is blocked by a ton of guys who throw 92+

    Like Colter Bean, he is going to have to shut down AAA for a couple of seasons before he would get a call up

    “Hard to quantify Japanese pitchers.”

    I agree with the general point your making on guys like Okajima. Just one thing – Japanese pitchers are really easy to quantify in many ways.

    They have plenty of statistics to pour through.

    The difficult part with them is that it’s extraordinarily difficult to generalize what those quantified levels of performance mean.

    It’s the generalization of production that is extremely difficult because of the differences in the way the game is played there.

    As Jerkface said before – you really have to scout those guys qualitatively and do so in a careful fashion because the results really don’t provide a lot of certainty.

    Another great example of this might be Yu Darvish. I’ve only seen a little bit of him but I would stay away from him. I’ve been very underwhelmed by him.

    This past winter it was frequently written that Darvish was a better risk than Chapman in terms of pitchers outside the U.S. I didn’t see that at all.

    In 2008 his ST OPS was: 1.117
    2009: 1.060
    This year he is actually down to .915

    “we have the world championship ring now, so if they want to take pride in that small victory (not allowing him to break pena’s HR record), then let them.”

    I may not like the Sox and some of their players but I do respect the organization. I can’t say that about the Rays.

    “Sabathia was too quick to the plate today,”

    Pat M.,

    He was. He looked out of sync like his front side/ leg was moving faster than his back side/ push off leg.

    As you said – he just needs more work. He looked terrific two games ago. Had a bad outing last time and wasn’t sharp today.

    Hopefully it just snaps in place and he gets his mechanics and timing locked in.

    I am not basing my huge expectations of Cano on Spring Training.

    I am basing it on:
    - He hit .320 with 25 HR and 85 RBI last year
    - He is now 27 and basically in his prime
    - He was unusually terrible with RISP last year that even if he is average this year, his stats will JUMP
    - He is now hitting 5th all season with ARod hitting in front of him and Posada and Granderson behind him
    - Who knows? Maybe without Melky, Cano won’t be distracted, and maybe he’ll be even more focused…

  179. CB March 30th, 2010 at 2:47 pm

    Venditte just switched arms. Man that his strange. He throws the ball completely differently from the left side.

    The Braves announcers didn’t notice that he’d switched arms.

    Clearly Brian Cashman is to blame.

  181. Derek Leader March 30th, 2010 at 2:48 pm

    Yes. And in 2008 he had a horrible year. So, by that logic, we can say that the worse his ST numbers are, the better year he is going to have.

    The power of positive thinking for the win.

    Wave, I hope he does well – and that’s good to hear from Newman. Not everyone has to be a star after all – it’s ok to be a servicable player.

    Mechanics can be fixed; as long as CC is healthy, no problem. Even I’m not worried, lol; why would I be? His history says he’s a pretty darn good pitcher.

  183. Merc March 30th, 2010 at 2:49 pm

    1st batter: Right-handed, single up the center
    2nd batter: Left-handed, grubber to pitcher, moved over the runner
    3rd batter: Right-handed..

    Braves announcers STILL haven’t noticed.

  184. Betsy -Romine wasn't built in a day March 30th, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    Clearly it’s mechanical; last time out, CC got clocked by minor leaguers.

    “CC is a slow starter. At this point in his career I don’t think that’s going to change. The Yankees (and their fans) just have to roll with the punches for the first 7 – 10 starts.”

    Sabathia’s ERA was 3.90 after 7 starts in 2009 and 3.42 after 10 (his low water mark until Sept 19th).

    Could our standards be a tad high perhaps?

    ————–

    His era after his 6th start was 4.85 and 3 of his 1st 6 starts were ugly. I guess I should have said we should roll with the punches for his 1st 6 to 10 starts.

    Jeez, my point was that Yankees fans need to be patient when he more than likely gets hit hard in the beginning of the year.

  187. trisha - OPPC member who sees, hears, and knows all. 28 is on its way!!!!! March 30th, 2010 at 2:51 pm

    Hey all.

    SJ you definitely had it right about Ace’s balky back. I should listen to you more often. :)

    Mel, Pat, Doreen, Upstate, Erica, Erin, and Becca – I wish I could be more like all of you. You have the greatest patience in the world with people spinning out of control. My achilles heel (okay one of them :) ) is my lack of tolerance for kneee jerking and bridge jumping. 99.9% of the time I’m proven right by refusing to prematurely panic. Yet I think it also makes me pretty atypical in terms of sportsfans. It is my perception at least that my way – just enjoying it all, never worrying, accepting losses without breaking a sweat, totally appreciating the team no matter what happens, counseling patience, supporting players whether they are having good or bad days – is really not the norm with fans. And I can understand it not being the norm. Fans by nature (so it seems to me) are impatient, want their team to win all the time, are vastly disappointed when they don’t, get down when the team loses, get frustrated when players aren’t excelling, etc. So I end up feeling like a fish out of water.

    I’m not sure where this is all leading because as Doreen says, this place is addictive. And except for the vast exception, I really enjoy the posters (except for when they are knee jerking and overworrying; then it has the tendency to drive me crazy). I thought today that I had probably gotten to the point where my coming here was senseless. While I think I have some good insights and actually come up with some pretty good theories, I don’t think my absence would have greatly impact anyone’s well being. In fact it might serve to do the opposite. And I would think at least a few posters would actually rejoice. :) However, I wonder if I would adjust well to not having a home during the season. As a somewhat displaced Yankee fan, this place has been my haven. And I have really developed some very nice cyberfriendships and think of many of you as family.

    I guess the best I can say for now is that I apologize for my lack of patience. I know me well enough to know that that isn’t going to disappear. And when I get strident about the knee jerking, it never means that I don’t appreciate/like the knee jerkers as people. I don’t have much difficulty separating “forum reactions” from the people who are doing the reacting. I’m operating on little sleep because I ended up doing something I promised myself I wouldn’t do anymore – getting drawn into a pointless and endless conversation with a poster who was adept at twisting words and baiting and switching. That won’t happen again.

    Ciao now.

    :)

  188. LGY - Child Prodigy/GB7's Bestest Buddy March 30th, 2010 at 2:51 pm

    Sabathia’s slow starts are actually only a very recent phenomena. Up until 2008 he was typically great in April. Usually below a 3 ERA.

    But, in 2008 his April ERA was 7.76 and last year it was 4.73.

  189. Jerry March 30th, 2010 at 2:51 pm

    Can he switch sides between pitches or batters? Is there a rule that he has to decide to pitch from 1 side?

  190. GrouchoNYY March 30th, 2010 at 2:51 pm

    Finally mentioned it after several switches

  191. Carl March 30th, 2010 at 2:53 pm

    Pat was a little wild. That is probably expected though, facing major league hitters.

  192. Frank March 30th, 2010 at 2:53 pm

    “Can he switch sides between pitches or batters?”

    Don’t think he’s allowed to switch during an at bat. He can switch from batter to batter though.

  193. Derek Leader March 30th, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    I think the ruling is he can only switch between batters. And HE gets to decide which side the batter is on in the event he faces a switch hitter. They had to make a rule just for him.

  194. GrouchoNYY March 30th, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    One switch per batter allowed after first pitch. That rule was to stop the fun of him pitching to a switchhitter where the dance would never end

  195. champ809 March 30th, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    I’ve been saying for some time now that the RedSux are the team that misses out on the playoffs.

    I think the AL ends up like this;

    AL East- Yanks
    AL Central- Chicago
    AL West- Texas

    AL Wild Card- Rays

    Thoughts?

  196. Bronx Jeers March 30th, 2010 at 2:55 pm

    They don’t notice much in Atlanta. They’re still waiting for Sklylab to fall.

  197. CB March 30th, 2010 at 2:56 pm

    Venditte can only switch between batters not inside of an at bat.

    And Venditte needs to declare which arm he will pitch with prior to the batter deciding which side he wants to hit from.

    So Venditte’s switch pitching will be negated by a switch hitter.

    Not sure what would happen with a pinch hitter but I’d assume that once Venditte declares his arm if there’s a pinch hitter he would not be able to switch.

  198. CountryClub March 30th, 2010 at 2:56 pm

    I have to admit, I’ve believed all of the talk about CC being a slow starter during his career. I’ve even heard CC say it, so I didnt have reason to doubt it. But after looking at his career on a yr to yr basis, he really isnt that bad.

  199. upstate kate March 30th, 2010 at 2:56 pm

    Jerry
    IIRC, once he decides, he has to stick to the same side for a given batter. I believe the situation came up when he faced a switch hitter and they kept switching sides.

  200. Wave Your Hat March 30th, 2010 at 2:59 pm

    “So Venditte’s switch pitching will be negated by a switch hitter.”

    That’s per the new rule enacted after Venditte’s first year in which a Staten Island game practically came to a halt while Venditte and the switch hitter he was facing kept changing sides!

  201. Nick in SF March 30th, 2010 at 2:59 pm

    “When Venditte came in during the bottom of the 5th, their announcers actually said “We’d love to tell you more about him, but we have no idea who he is. Literally, he’s not in the media guide.”

    “So Venditte’s switch pitching will be negated by a switch hitter.”

    To a degree, he still gets to “choose” which side to pitch from, so with good scouting he’ll know which is the batter’s weaker side, or can choose situationally (runner on 2nd, no out, he can throw lefthanded)

  205. Derek Leader March 30th, 2010 at 3:02 pm

    The Pat Venditte Rule:

    The Professional Baseball Umpire Corporation (PBUC) released its official rules for dealing with ambidextrous pitchers. These guidelines were reached after PBUC staff consulted with a variety of sources, including the Major League Baseball Rules Committee.
    It reads:
    -The pitcher must visually indicate to the umpire, batter and runner(s) which way he will begin pitching to the batter. Engaging the rubber with the glove on a particular hand is considered a definitive commitment to which arm he will throw with. The batter will then choose which side of the plate he will bat from.

    -The pitcher must throw one pitch to the batter before any “switch” by either player is allowed.

    -After one pitch is thrown, the pitcher and batter may each change positions one time per at-bat. For example, if the pitcher changes from right-handed to left-handed and the batter then changes batter’s boxes, each player must remain that way for the duration of that at-bat (unless the offensive team substitutes a pinch hitter, and then each player may again “switch” one time).

    -Any switch (by either the pitcher or the batter) must be clearly indicated to the umpire. There will be no warm-up pitches during the change of arms.

    -If an injury occurs the pitcher may change arms but not use that arm again during the remainder of the game.

    Venditte was cool to watch. I saw him Saturday at the Yankee complex pitching in AAA. He pitches sidearm lefty and over the top righty. Much faster righty. It looked like he was lucky to hit 85 lefty. The wierd thing is he pitched four batters lefty and then three batters righty. Didnt matter if it was a righty or lefty. Mabye he was working on things. He got hit pretty hard throwing lefty to righty batters. All the coaches and players were talking about him and watching. It was like the whole complex stopped what they were doing to watch.

  209. Jerkface March 30th, 2010 at 3:05 pm

    Venditte will be really lucky to make it to the majors. He can barely hit 90 righty with a decent curve. He actually gets guys out lefty because he throws sweeping junk side arm, but he likely won’t fly in the majors.

    Eventually they’ll probably just try and make him a permanent righty

  210. upstate kate March 30th, 2010 at 3:05 pm

  212. CB March 30th, 2010 at 3:06 pm

    Proctor’s command is very poor today but he’s throwing hard.

    Proctor just tried to bust Posada inside with a fastball and he put the pitch more or less where he wanted it.

    And Posada just turned on the ball and hit a rocket.

    It is absolutely amazing how much bat speed Posada still has at the age of 38 and as a catcher.

    A power pitcher throws a fastball in at a spot he wants and Posada still has the bat speed to get around on the pitch and to drill it over the wall.

    Every year you wait for Posada’s bat to start slowing down because you know eventually it will have to happen.

    And he’s shown no signs of that what so ever.

    He’s looked phenomenal this spring.

    GeorgeInJax,

    Speaking of Longoria, did you see where DB states that the Rays have the two best players in the division? What about A-Rod, CC, and Lester…

    I agree about the potential for injuries to close the gap. That’s the oddest part, that assuming perfect health he still doesn’t see the Yankees having the talent to matchup up with BOS/TAM. I guess if he keeps picking against the Yankees he’ll eventually be right, then he can have his “I told you so” moment.”

    I would take Longoria over AROD, I think he is/will be that good. As it is currently, Longoria is better defensively than AROD and could be a push offensively w/ the slight nod going to AROD, I’ve seen a lot of Rays games along w/ Yanks games the last few years and I just think he is one of those players. Soriano is a big pick up for the Rays as it will slide JP Howell into a set up role where he has been more effective in the past. But Howell is hurt and may not be back for them till a few weeks into the season. I’m not completely sold on Zobrist matching his career year last season.

    I do think the Yankees win the AL EAST still but there are injury/age issues w/ Nick Johnson, a year older Jeter, Mo, Posada etc….the biggest key is age finally catching up w/ some big contributors of this team…you never want it to happen but the question is always when?

  216. SJ44 March 30th, 2010 at 3:07 pm

    Can switch batter to batter. Can’t do it pitch to pitch.

    They actually had to add it to the rulebook because no rule on this existed until last year.

  217. Derek Leader March 30th, 2010 at 3:08 pm

    And here are the details of the switch pitcher/switch-hitter incident that made the rule. Also from wikipedia:

    On June 19, 2008, in his first minor league appearance with the Staten Island Yankees against their crosstown rivals the Brooklyn Cyclones (the respective Yankees and Mets affiliates are the only two minor league teams in New York City), Venditte pitched a scoreless ninth inning for a Yankees win.

    The appearance is notable because there was an unusual incident before Venditte faced the last Cyclone batter; the batter, Ralph Henriquez, is a switch-hitter, and upon choosing to bat left- or right-handed (with Venditte subsequently choosing to pitch with the same hand), Henriquez would then go to the other side of the plate (and adjust his shin guard—which is worn on the front leg when a batter takes his stance) to regain the advantage. After this had happened several times the teams appealed to the umpiring crew, which ruled that the batter must first select from which side of the plate he intended to hit, and that the pitcher would then be allowed to declare with which arm he would pitch. Venditte subsequently struck out a very frustrated Henriquez (who slammed his bat against the dirt in anger) to end the game.[10]

    Venditte completed the season with 23 saves in 30 appearances with a 0.83 ERA. His performance earned him a spot on the New York-Penn League All-Star team and the Minor League Baseball Yearly Award for Best Short-Season Reliever.

  218. kd March 30th, 2010 at 3:09 pm

  221. Wave Your Hat March 30th, 2010 at 3:12 pm

    About halfway through is Newman’s take on Venditte:

    http://www.minorleagueball.com.....#storyjump

    In this interview Mark Newman says Venditte has an average fastball and a good curve with good command from the right side, says his stuff from the left side is “angles and command”, whatever that means, but I would guess his lefty stuff would have to be effective for Venditte to go far.

  222. Jerkface March 30th, 2010 at 3:14 pm

    “angles and command”

    Pretty sure that means he is 100% deception from the left side, being a side armer topping out at 85.

    I am really pulling for him.

  223. CB March 30th, 2010 at 3:14 pm

    “but I would guess his lefty stuff would have to be effective for Venditte to go far.”

    Venditte’s fastball from the left side is in the low 80′s. He’s smoke and mirrors from the left side.

    For a core player, Jorge gets a lot of grief. People focus on what he’s not great at and not what he’s really good at.

    I like the fact that they are one of the few, in not the only, team(s) left that don’t have a different uniform for every day of the week and 2 on Sundays!

    I do agree that sometimes the road grays are boring, but they’re supposed to be – they’re the road team.

    “But, in 2008 his April ERA was 7.76 and last year it was 4.73.”

    LGY,

    I had forgotten just how rough CC was in April 2008, his early struggles last year really pale in comparison. The first four starts in ’08 are what really got him, CC allowed 27ER in 18IP. That’s an ERA of 13.50. Opponents OPS’d 1.170 against him during that stretch.

    Just as amazing is what he did after those four starts: 235IP, 191H, 49ER, 45BB, 237SO, 1.88 ERA, .222/.264/.306/.570 against. It’s just unbelievable that someone that great can look so helpless, really says a lot about the game of baseball.

    Zach Segovia is facing Omar Infante in the 8th inning of a tie game and gives up two hits to “blow” the tie.

    You watch games like this every spring and it’s really hard to believe how some people can actually pay attention or even worry about team records/ standings in spring training.

    Spinning out of control is my natural environs and I’m not a big pharmaceuticals fan so patience or insanity are my only 2 options.

    I’m much more panicky when everything is calm and going well.

  249. Jim March 30th, 2010 at 3:35 pm

    I have to say; when Pete ran this site we would have updates very frequently with in depth analysis of each game to the end. I would guess the fans on this blog really wanted updates on how Venditte pitched. All spring its been like this. Oh well. A little disappointing

  250. Bronx Jeers March 30th, 2010 at 3:37 pm

    “ZZZZZZZZZZ Boring. The tradition to me is the pinstripes.”

    Actually, the road gray uniform is older than the current home uniform.

    This is from 1919. The road uni is pretty much the same but notice the home uni. No interlocking N & Y.

    Sorry, I just love the gray.

    Scouting Notes: Heathcott Leads Yankees’ Promising Hitting Prospects

    You can get updates from Pete on the Boston Globe’s website. They’ll be updates about the Sox, but they’ll be updates nonetheless. Do you see anyone else complaining? No – that should tell you something.

    Someone forgot all the times we didn’t get updates because of deadlines or a hotdog vendor wandering too close to the pressbox.

    Country Club, thanks! I’m really excited about Heathcott, but I guess I should tamper that excitement as he’s a long way away from the majors…….

    I’ve been refreshing for a Venditte update for an hour… I miss Pete.

    UPDATE, 3:48 p.m.: We have an Angel Berroa sighting! Today is the 50th anniversary of his first every spring training game. Because ya know, he is old.

    There is an update for ya.

  261. LGY - Child Prodigy/GB7's Bestest Buddy March 30th, 2010 at 3:51 pm

    UPDATE, 3:49 p.m.: Forgot to mention, but Angel took over at 3rd for Alex. Everyone on the field just looks so much more comfortable now that Alex is on the bench. Berroa just brings that warm friendly Grandpa feeling on to the field that makes everyone smile (get it? I think he is old) The team is so much better without Alex, because ya know he sucks and I hate him.

    No problem, Betsy. With Slade and Abe Almonte, the Yanks have two young & promising CFers.

    I also thought his report on Brackman was encouraging. It’s good to hear his mechanics are cleaner and that his control looks good. I’m not worried about his velocity because he was throwing mid 90′s at the end of last yr with the same mechanics.

  269. upstate kate March 30th, 2010 at 3:58 pm

    Derek
    you can get the box score from mlb.com, you can set it to automatically refresh as frequently as you want

    you would think by now I would learn not to be drinking anything when I read Jerkface’s comments, but no, he got me again!

  270. La la la March 30th, 2010 at 3:58 pm

    That’s what I’m here for. I’m sorry my sentence just ended in a preposition. Hopefully over at River Ave they will have proper sentence structure above my elementary level. If there is anything else I can help you with, just keep wishing for Pete and I will be around to assist you.

    LGY -

    Were those actual updates from last season?

  274. Betsy -Romine wasn't built in a day March 30th, 2010 at 4:01 pm

    Country Club, the only thing to do is to develop a corner OF or two and a couple of INF – we’re really shaky there. Of course, our INF is not going anywhere soon, but still – it would be nice to have a few other kids in the pipeline. My first reaction to Brackman was about his velocity, but then I thought that it was way more imporant that he have good control and clean mechanics.

    For anyone: What is the difference between command and control? I still get confused ….thanks!

  275. LGY - Child Prodigy/GB7's Bestest Buddy March 30th, 2010 at 4:05 pm

    No, I made them up.

  276. Doreen - 2010 GTLU March 30th, 2010 at 4:07 pm

    LGY -

    ‘Cause – you know – they were pretty realistic. Proving that all updates are not created equal. :lol:

  277. LGY - Child Prodigy/GB7's Bestest Buddy March 30th, 2010 at 4:07 pm

    I will take their realistic nature as a compliment ;)

  278. Erica - always OPPC - Sesame Street Mafia and GTLU supporter March 30th, 2010 at 4:10 pm

    Chad has mentioned this repeatedly, but during spring training games he is mostly working the clubhouse for updates. He sees very little of the games.

    If you are looking for play by play spring training action, you are probably better off going to Florida

    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.

  296. good page August 10th, 2014 at 9:07 pm

    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.

  297. Twanna Colombe August 10th, 2014 at 11:44 pm
