YANKEES
Derek Jeter SS

Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Nick Swisher RF
Curtis Granderson CF
Brett Gardner LF
Mike Rivera C

LHP Andy Pettitte

ORIOLES
Brian Roberts 2B

Miguel Tejada 3B
Garrett Atkins 1B
Matt Wieters C
Ty Wigginton DH
Felix Pie LF
Cesar Izturis SS

RHP Alfredo Simon

TIME/TV: 1:05 p.m./YES Network

WEATHER: Andy Pettitte is starting, yet there’s hardly a cloud in the sky. He’ll get to pitch in this one.

UMPIRES: The only umpires listed are HP Andy Fletcher and 1B Mark Wegner. There will be a full set of four, but those are the only names I have.

ON THE LINE: There’s actually more on the line at the minor league complex where Alfredo Aceves is pitching an inning to prove that his back is healthy enough to open the season in the Yankees bullpen.

JAMES P. DAWSON AWARD: Jon Weber has been given the James P. Dawson Award as the best rookie in camp. I’m not positive it was a unanimous decision, but Weber certainly got my vote.

UPDATE, 1:13 p.m.: Brian Cashman said he’s not worried about Marte, Cervelli or Posada. “The only huge question we have is Ace right now,” Cashman said. “He’ll throw his inning today and hopefully he’ll do well and then feel well tomorrow.”

By Ace, he means Alfredo Aceves. Everyone probably knows that, but I don’t want anyone thinking CC Sabathia is questionable.

UPDATE, 1:24 p.m.: This last week is getting brutal for the Yankees. Nick Johnson just fouled a ball off his right knee and he’s been taken out of the game, replaced by Randy Winn.

UPDATE, 1:34 p.m.: An 0-2 pitch to Nick Swisher, he hammered it for a two-run home run to right. It’s already 4-0 Yankees after one inning. Alex Rodriguez had an RBI single and Robinson Cano drove in a run with a fielder’s choice grounder to second.

UPDATE, 2:05 p.m.: Nick Johnson has a bruised right knee. The Yankees have labeled him, day-to-day. No diagnostic tests were performed.

UPDATE, 2:38 p.m.: Andy Pettitte pitched pretty well against actual hitters. He’s out of the game with runners on the corners and one out here in the fifth. The last batter he faced might have grounded into an inning-ending double play, but Cano was on his way to cover second base and the grounder found a hole. Josh Schmidt — great numbers in Double-A last year, not overwhelming stuff — is in from the bullpen.

UPDATE, 2:40 p.m.: Nice job by Schmidt, getting Adam Jones and Miguel Tejeda to strand the runners. Still a 4-0 Yankees lead.

UPDATE, 2:59 p.m.: Alfredo Aceves pitched a scoreless inning and felt no pain at the minor league complex. He said he will “absolutely” be ready for Opening Day.

UPDATE, 3:13 p.m.: Mariano Rivera has a little bit of a cold. He said that’s why Girardi went to the mound after he hit Felix Pie, just making sure he still felt OK. Rivera said he’s fine. No worries about Sunday.

UPDATE, 4:10 p.m.: Nick Johnson gave a simple “yes” when asked about his chances of playing Sunday. He’s expecting to be in the lineup.

    “You’re obviously one of those people that enjoy starting controversy, and feed off the controversy, refusing to acknowledge when you might be wrong.”

    See, and here I was this whole time assuming that advocating that the media is NOT complicate with aiding and abetting the Red Sox was the NON-controversial position.

    Who knew…

    “I respect your opinion, but IMO, when others are quick to throw the words “conspiracy” and “paranoia” around, then they are not considering another possibility.”

    No, that’s the assumption of the paranoid and intellectually pedestrian.

    Did you ever consider people who use those words HAVE duly considered all the possibilities and STILL arrived at the conclusion the theory is paranoid?

    YOU just argued that anyone who doesn’t agree with you does so only because they won’t consider your viewpoint, rather than consider it and reject in on merit.

    And THAT sir, IS paranoia.

    J”ust an example, one Red Sox fan talks about wanting to put a bullet through Mariano’s head, and every other Red Sox fan jumps on the bandwagon and praises the the guy’s desire. That’s just the way Red Sox fans are. They have each other’s backs. Yankees fans do not. Sad, to say the least.”

    So you advocate Yankees fans supporting other Yankees fans who wish murder on Red Sox players?

    Did you really just write that proudly in a public forum?

    The part that really annoys me is that I walked in just after 9, but started paying bills. At like 9:22 I realized my DVR wasn’t recording anything and my heart skipped a beat.

    So now I have to watch FlashForward, and the first 25 minutes of Greys and Fringe online.

    And I couldn’t do my weekly Friday morning Grey’s recap with my coworkers :-(

    Schmoltzie. There’s a classy guy. He didnt take it lying down from the Sox when they wanted to reassign him to the minors or stick him in the bullpen.

    Another fine addition for MLBN.

    They are just removing him because its a meaningless game and we’re close to the season. He fouled a ball of his knee, gonna put some ice on it.

    here’s hoping for a non-injury game. this team is loaded, cash did a great job over the winter.

    the veteran leadership is there.

    they will make errors. they will lose games. it’s a fact.

    but they will win the al east.

    can’t wait for the season to start

  44. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes April 2nd, 2010 at 1:30 pm

    Any updates on NJ?

    Hopefully its just a precaution…might as well not push it in a meaningless game.

    You all need to step back from the cliff.

    Damon had his chance to return and he blew it…stop beating a dead horse.

  53. stuckey April 2nd, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    Okay, so here is a baseball question.

    Yankees regulars haven’t shown a lot of power this spring. Granderson in particular comes to mind.

    Product of a good spring training approach, or cause for concern?

  54. CR9 April 2nd, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    Is anybody else besides Bronx Jeers going to Fenway Field for any of the series?

  55. William Buckner April 2nd, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    “Okay, so Derek clearly took MY cue, William I’m not so sure about”

    Nah, I’m not sweating NJ. This is nothing more than precaution.

    Regardless, I count on 120-130 games from him. You’d be nuts to have greater expectation.

    Better to be pleasantly surprised than bitterly disappointed.

  56. pat April 2nd, 2010 at 1:35 pm

    Major League Scouting Bureau will be expanding its services to include Latin America. Could be another step to international draft

    OK, going to have to record the rest. Day off, weather changed from 40s to 80s, instant summer! Have to be outside (no mud season this year Erica)

  59. William Buckner April 2nd, 2010 at 1:36 pm

    “Product of a good spring training approach, or cause for concern?”

    Weather wasn’t good. Rain and wind can hurt power. I believe in the back of a players card. If they usually hit for power, they will probably continue to.

  60. Ninja Burglar April 2nd, 2010 at 1:36 pm

    Is it me, or did that Wallace Matthews piece have the lineup wrong? He says “Hitting behind A-Rod, Teixeira had an MVP-caliber season.” Hasn’t it always been Tex 3 Arod 4?

    Balls never carry well in FL unless it’s on days the wind is blowing out.

    It’s why the Florida State League is such a pitchers league.

    I wouldn’t worry about the power numbers. They will be where they should be.

  67. Eric April 2nd, 2010 at 1:41 pm

    The game from Fenway Field is on ESPN2 because the Yankees are involved.

    If it was a Red Sox-Rays opening game, it would have been on ESPN. Even a Red Sox-Royals game would have been on ESPN.

    Be careful with that update kate-

    I remember one late April Saturday (2001 I believe) the temps hit 70 and everyone was loving it outside (lots of guys playing frisbee without shirts :-)).

    Around 7pm that night the sky got really ugly and I woke up to a foot and a half of snow on the ground. Cl-ss was cancelled on Monday

  69. CR9 April 2nd, 2010 at 1:41 pm

    dont worry according to everyone, it doesnt matter if he gets a hit he will somehow still steal 100 bases.

  74. pat April 2nd, 2010 at 1:45 pm

    Sunday night game is probably blacked out in NY and Boston so viewership takes a hit.

    yeah I know Erica, just enjoying it while I can

    ESPN has the womens NCAA championship on Sunday night

  78. stuckey April 2nd, 2010 at 1:47 pm

    It’s either because they’re contractually obligated to show the NCAA women’s tourney games on ESPN proper, OR because the ratings will be so high they’ll use it to goose awareness of ESPN2, or likely, both.

  79. CR9 April 2nd, 2010 at 1:49 pm

    Ahhhh. Thanks Y 27. That makes sense.

    I think that the Baylor women have a decent (and by decent, I mean like 5 percent) chance at beating UConn. Wouldn’t that be great for that university!!

    They have that Britney Griner (sp?). She could put a dent in UConns plans.

    I dont really have a problem with the UConn women. Geno Auriemma, if he is a scumbag at all, is far less of one than Jim Calhoun.

    “Not a Dime back!”

    Anybody remember when Calhouny lied and said the Yankees wanted him to throw out the first pitch and he denied us (being a Sox fan)?!?! LOL

  89. jimmy d April 2nd, 2010 at 1:54 pm

    Ok back to talking about ESPN NY

    It isin’t even a NY bias. The Mets got one of the best beat writers they have in Adam Rubin. Even the freakin Knicks got a fluff piece about LeBron for their first article, just to lure the audience in.

    And what is our first article? Wally Matthews talking about how much age we have on the team and how we had luck last year.

    Why is it that the most successful franchise in the city, who has the most recent championship, gets hack pieces written about them to open up their new site while the other teams get fluff pieces? Why do we get one of the worst writers in NY, period, to be our beat writer?

    I’m looking forward to watching that Edes-Matthews face-off… probably just Matthews agreeing with Edes’ worship of the Sox.

  90. Limbo April 2nd, 2010 at 1:56 pm

    Manchester!!!!!!

    Big game, gonna be tough without Roo, but I’m sure Fergie will have a plan. I’m pretty sure SAF is going to play for the draw, since we are in control of the PL race.

  144. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 2nd, 2010 at 3:04 pm

    http://www.foxnews.com/sports/.....t-al-east/

    1. BOSTON

    I have two main reasons for picking the Red Sox: improved starting pitching, with the addition of John Lackey; and better athleticism among the everyday players, which translates to improved defense and baserunning.

    Clay Buchholz is a huge key to the season, particularly if he’s able to outperform his Yankees counterpart, right-hander Phil Hughes. I think he will.

    For all the concern over Boston’s offense, this is almost the same lineup that ranked third in the majors last year in runs scored. While no one can deny the impact of Jason Bay’s departure, the Red Sox will have Victor Martinez for a full season and should get increased production at shortstop.

    And the Red Sox won’t have to deal with a slumping designated hitter for the first two months, either. If David Ortiz, in the final year of his contract, has another funk like he did last year, the team can simply find someone else to do the job.

    In fact, the Red Sox have plenty of money, and plenty of prospects, to procure in-season replacements at various stations around the diamond. Their financial resources give them a big advantage on the Rays — but not the Yankees.

    2. NEW YORK

    I picked the Red Sox to finish ahead of the Yankees at the start of spring training. But I’ll be honest: I’ve been very tempted to change.

    When the Yankees are coming off a World Series victory, you’re supposed to take them to win the division the next year.

    “Would be stupid not to,” one scout told me. “Tremendous talent and excess dollars to fill some holes down the road.”

    Another scout reminded me that the Yankees probably have the best offense in baseball. And they do. Last year’s 915 runs, the most in the majors, tell you that.

    So what gives?

    It’s simple, really: They will miss Johnny Damon and Hideki Matsui, and I wonder if this is the season when the wear-and-tear on their aging core results in one injury too many.

    But the Yankees are going to have another great team. They should make the playoffs again. But the Red Sox’ pitching staff will allow them to stay close through the summer, and their younger legs will make the difference in the end.

    The Red Sox have “plenty of prospects”?

    The stuff about Damon and Matsui bothers me because it’s almost as if they are the only two players in the world who can possibly be clutch. Heyman implied the same thing on with Mike earlier. The Red Sox have a younger and more athletic team? They can just go out and get someone to replace Ortiz? Hmm, but the Yankees can’t go out and get someone if one of their players gets hurt?

  148. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 2nd, 2010 at 3:07 pm

    About the analysts on TV/web – let’s face it, these guys didn’t get where they are by being dumb. So, they must have a reason for saying/writing certain opinions. (This is different from reporting news.)

    I think the reason for their stated opinions is that they’re trying to be entertaining and generate buzz. Kruk and Reynolds said as much about ESPN, and I don’t think other outlets are much different.

    What makes this blog different, in my opinion, is that Sam and Chad openly state that they’re giving opinions, and seem to be objective about the discussion they give forth. They give a well-reasoned case for what they’re saying. I think we all can appreciate that.

    Betsy-

    I don’t think the analysis of the Red Sox is inappropriate or very far off. I just think the reasons listed for the Yankees not being as effective are being over-played. That’s all. I don’t think the Red Sox being touted as “better” means the Yankees are “bad”. Just means one has the edge, and in this case, his opinion is Boston.

  167. Rich in NJ April 2nd, 2010 at 3:20 pm

    NYY626

    Nothing earth shattering, but Derek doesn’t do tons of radio interviews, so I thought it was noteworthy. I think the podcast will be available later.

    Anyway, he talked about how much he liked playing with Matsui, about how great it was to win again after such a long drought, that it was good to see teammates who never won finally win, that he thinks Phil Hughes will be a good starter because he can throw four pitches for strikes, that he thinks Grarnderson will have no problem adjusting to playing in NY, and that the only thing that matters to him for this season is winning.

  168. Jerkface April 2nd, 2010 at 3:21 pm

    I commented on that fox article, the line that gets me is the:

    But the Red Sox’ pitching staff will allow them to stay close through the summer, and their younger legs will make the difference in the end.

    my reply:

    What young legs for the Red Sox?
    Cano, Granderson, Gardner, Swisher, Teixeira are 30 or under
    Only Pedroia and Ellsbury are under 30 for the Sox
    (Bet you didn’t realize youkilis, beltre, and scutaro were over 30!)

    it really bugs me. The Red Sox are a much older team. Infact, their most important players are as old or older than the Yankees.

    Not to mention their players have shown signs of breaking down, the Yankees old players are going strong (because they are unique, hall of famers)

  169. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 2nd, 2010 at 3:21 pm

    I still want to know how the Sox have found the fountain of youth…and Moron -i neglected to mention that Matsuzaka is a question mark.

  170. Rich in NJ April 2nd, 2010 at 3:23 pm

    I like Neyer, but when Mauer signed his extension, he said that he was glad that he won’t have to worry about seeing Mauer sign as a FA with the Yankees, but the truth is that the RS were the team most linked to Mauer as a FA, but of course he conveniently overlooked that.

  171. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 2nd, 2010 at 3:23 pm

    Rich, thanks! I will listen to that later when the podcast is up….

    Sarah, I respect the Sox; they’re a very good team and will battle us hard all the way. I just can’t deal with stupid comments like Moron-i made. I think Clay could have the edge over Phil just based on experience, but who knows?

    Jerkface, good response – but you know he won’t reply. It happens every spring – these writers make themselves look like fools. I still don’t see how the Sox made up 8 games on the Yankees; their offense isn’t close to what the Yankees put out there. I will say that Lackey has had a phenomenal spring and perhaps Buchholz found something last out.

  174. m April 2nd, 2010 at 3:25 pm

    The Yankee’s had a younger average age than the Sox last season too. It’s amazing how little fact checking actually goes on anymore. Did I say amazing? I meant sad. It is sad.

  178. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 2nd, 2010 at 3:28 pm

    Apparently the Yankee minor leaguers are in the game; I know the game doesn’t count, but seriously -at least make the plays you’re supposed to.

  179. blake April 2nd, 2010 at 3:28 pm

    The two “advantages” writers keeping pointing that the Sox have over the Yankees are age and starting pitching. You could argue the Yankees in actuality are better in both and there are several other areas that I see the Yankees having a distinct advantage over Boston.

    Doesn’t mean the Yankees will win the division, just means writers are mistaken in their logic occasionally.

  180. GreenBeret7 April 2nd, 2010 at 3:28 pm

    As decent a hitter as Snyder is, he is not a 2nd baseman. he has no position that he can actually play. The only reason that Vechionacci is only still in the system because they need somebody yp play there. He can’t hit and he can’t field. The Yanks got a break in that Cano didn’t get tore up by the throw from Vechionacci down at his acnkles with the runner coming in.

  181. pat April 2nd, 2010 at 3:29 pm

  182. Jerkface April 2nd, 2010 at 3:29 pm

    The Red Sox are going to have a 40 year old patrolling center, but of course they are much younger than the yankees. ROLL EYES

    Also their pitchers, while marginally younger, present far more injury risks than the Yankees.
    Beckett, Lackey, Matsuzaka, and Wakefield are all huge injury questions.
    The Red Sox bullpen is no longer the ‘best in the AL’ or whatever.

    They will have great defense, a good offense, and some speed.
    The yankees will have good defense, a great offense, and some speed (we stole alot at a very high rate last season)

    Our bullpen will be better.
    The rotations will be close.

    ARGH.

    But its just useless prognosticating , nothing to get worked up over.

  183. Jerkface April 2nd, 2010 at 3:30 pm

    The thing about that article, Morosi tells us, point blank that everyone is picking the Yankees. At this point he is saying “Look, everyone, the Yankees are amazing and they are the pick, but I have to be different because thats what gets views.”

    Again, the Sox are a very good team with excellent pitching; it’s hardly a stretch to think they’ll be a serious contender. It’s just the reasons for picking them are so asinine – and the Yankees are still better than they are. I don’t think logic applies to sportswriters.

  189. tex's friend April 2nd, 2010 at 3:33 pm

    can’t completely avoid the national media boston praise. the revenge is when our team stands with the trophy and they don’t. Watching Papelbon choke and give the ALDS to Anaheim. Watching no matter how many deals Boston tries to put together, the Yankees always do one better.

    In response to CC, AJ, and Tex, Boston picked up: Lackey, Scutaro, Beltre, Cameron, Hall, some no name back up shortstop, Schoenweis. 7 players that dont match the 3 we got.

    How bad is Brett Gardner? How can anyone who knows anything about baseball keep defending this paltry excuse for a major leaguer? He really is horrible.

  193. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 2nd, 2010 at 3:37 pm

    How badly would Montero have to falter at the plate for the Yanks to consider Romine as C (assuming, which I probably shouldn’t) that Romine progresses as a hitter?

  194. tex's friend April 2nd, 2010 at 3:37 pm

    Romine and Montero are both going to be staples on this team for many years to come. i see montero 2011 and romine 2012, with montero seeing more dh time.

    Afternoon, Pat. Hope all is well on your sise.

    Yeah, somebody has worked hard this spring with Romine and Montero on their catching. Romine’s been getting his feet moving square and doing it quickly this spring as compared to his first two years. What’s just as important is that his glove hand is much softer. The ball isn’t bouncing out of his glove now, and the glove is quiet. Loving the change.

  198. Jerkface April 2nd, 2010 at 3:40 pm

    How badly would Montero have to falter at the plate for the Yanks to consider Romine as C (assuming, which I probably shouldn’t) that Romine progresses as a hitter?

    It is highly likely, that unless Montero really improves or Cervelli takes off, that Romine will be a catcher for the yankees. Else they trade him.

    I could see Romine and Montero splitting C/DH/OF/1B

  199. Rich in NJ April 2nd, 2010 at 3:41 pm

    choo

    You’re basing that on Winn’s past (except for 2009). The issue is whether or not he can still hit. Gardner is at an age at which he can still get better.

    Either way, Winn, Thames, Garnder, right now they all look pretty bad.

  200. tex's friend April 2nd, 2010 at 3:41 pm

    If i see Gardner pop up a high fastball to an infielder in any game against boston this first series, im going to scream. And what a waste. Melky isnt even starting everyday for atlanta. We might as well have made that trade with gardner instead of melky. Did Cash even try?

  202. Jerkface April 2nd, 2010 at 3:42 pm

    Romine’s last hurdle is really his plate discipline. A .300/.330/.480 catcher who can steal and play great defense would be awesome, but the yankees have really been spoiled with Posada the last decade+.

    I’d love if Romine could just get a .60-.80 isoD.

  203. choochoo April 2nd, 2010 at 3:42 pm

    Yankee management is infatuated with Gardner, The Gimmick. That’s all he is. that’s all he will ever be. Does he ever hit the ball more than 200 feet?

  204. tex's friend April 2nd, 2010 at 3:43 pm

    Montero is going to be our version of Victor Martinez. Great hitter (probably montero will hit for more power), but a catcher who doesnt catch all the time. I really think Romine and Montero will both be on our team and i dont see Cervelli upstaging either one as much as i like him.

    Rich–In order to get better, it is important that you have some natural ability and skill. Are you watching Gardner swing? Do you see many other major leaguers who look so pathetic? He doesn’t use his hips, he doesn’t use his back side, and basically he is trying to survive up there. He does very little right and it’s hard to make improvement that way.

  210. Rich in NJ April 2nd, 2010 at 3:48 pm

  214. Sarah April 2nd, 2010 at 3:51 pm

    Betsy-

    I don’t think many people doubt the Red Sox ability to win 95 games. That’s, more likely than not, going to get them a playoff spot. I just think the writers underestimate the amount of games the Yankees will win. I happen to be a Red Sox fan. I certainly don’t expect my team to beat out the Yankees. I do, however, expect them to play better than last year, where they still won 95 games. Even if they play equal to last year, I’d be happy.

    Taking everything that might happen to either team in either direction, I still think the Yankees win the division. I can’t predict playoff spots- the short series is just too finicky. Lesser a team has won too many times during my baseball watching career for me to postulate.

    As for Buchholz and Hughes, I think the assumption is that Clay should have taken his “starter lumps” last year, while presuming he will be better this year. That’s quite a jump to make, for either player. I think that’s a wash until either show something as a starter at the ML level beyond a season or two. Both should be ignored (left alone to succeed) until given time to develop, Hughes more so than Buchholz simply because of the experience.

  215. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 2nd, 2010 at 3:52 pm

    Jerkface, I could see that – I can’t see why that wouldn’t work (except, do the Yankees really want to keep jerking their kids around ? It might be best to keep one at C primarily). Romine is very young, isn’t he?

  216. Jerkface April 2nd, 2010 at 3:52 pm

    Face, what is isoD. ????

    As Rich said, its OBP – AVG, its the component of how much you get on base via walk (and hbp :) )

    Basically, Cano has a low isoD, his OBP is mostly from his hitting. Swisher has a huge isoD, his OBP is heavy from walking.

    Romine has a terrible isoD, he is a real hacker. His bat is good enough that at catcher it doesn’t really matter, but if he can just improve a bit he’d be very, very valuable. He is right now around .40 , which is better than Cano, but not as good as it could be.

  217. choochoo April 2nd, 2010 at 3:53 pm

    He has been adequate in certain spot, stopgap, situations. I read somewhere that he hit about .220 as a starter last year. He is the classic example of the Law of Diminshing Returns. Defensive replacement and pinch runner late in games. That’s about it. A starter for the World Champions? Not even close to being practical. I also don’t see the uppercut as a problem. He gets beat badly on so many pitches that he is looking to just get it in play. When do you ever see him “drive” the ball?

  218. Jerkface April 2nd, 2010 at 3:54 pm

    Betsy: Romine is only going into his age 21 season this year, which is why its amazing that the Yankees could get 2 catchers (Romine, Montero) that could do what they are doing at such a young age.

    Montero will be up this year in some capacity (sept, or otherwise) , and ready to solidify himself as a 20/21 year old in the big leagues. Romine will probably be 22/23.

  219. tex's friend April 2nd, 2010 at 3:54 pm

    Sarah, I had no idea you were a Sox fan, lol. I think the Sox will be really good – they always are. I never make the mistake of underestimating them and I’m sure the same goes for Sox fans re: the Yanks.

    I expect Buchholz to be pretty good if not very good. I expect Phil someday to be a stud, but this year? He’ll definitely have his ups and downs. Fortunately, he’s going to be given lots of rope; the Yankees have committed to him and that’s all for the best. I venture to say the Sox are in the same position with Buchhholz.

    Pat, I still see the Yanks as eventually going with three catchers with Romine playing the Ellie Howard part…corner outfield, catcher, DH, maybe some corner infield and Montero doing pretty much the same minus 3rd base. The one that gets the less playing time is Cervelli. As players leave, these guys should move into fulltime spots. I’m sort of wondering if Cervelli can play the outfield and middle infield in a pinch.

    Are you suggesting he hit like .400 as a frequent pinch hitter?

    Jerkface, so Romine can clearly hit – that’s good, lol. I mean, it’s nice that he’s got the ability first of all. However, how do you change someone from a hacker (does that mean he has no plate discipline at all and is swinging for the fences all the time) to someone with more patience without taking away his aggressiveness?

    Well, its a process, but like Kevin Long is trying to do with Cano is that you want them to be aggressive on good pitches, not just aggressive.

    Romine shows good power and speed for a catcher, he is going to hit his fair share of doubles and homers and even some triples. But every time I saw him in Tampa/Lakeland he was fouling off a lot of pitches and really just being over aggressive.

    Montero has a great knowledge of the zone, but also has the ability to hit anything. He strikes out less than Romine while walking around the same amount. I think Montero is likely to show better discipline in the majors, while ROmine really needs to work on his strike zone control.

  240. stuckey April 2nd, 2010 at 4:03 pm

    “He had what? 23 rbi’s last year?”

    Correct, and 48 runs scored in 248 ABs. Projected over a full season, that’s over (well) 100 runs scored from the 9 hole.

    ” I almost wish that they’d parade him out there each and every day so that once and for all, you Brett Gardner lovers would see without a doubt just what a clown you’re rooting for.”

    Well, this is your lucky day, because that’s pretty much what they’re going to do.

    choochoo. we want gardner to succeed but he doesnt have THAT MANY fans here. I am a Melky fan myself. But i am not wishing gardner to fail, because they would hurt the team as it is now. I still think they should be going to talk to Jermaine Dye and get over this Gardner/Thames crap. Winn can stay for the bench, and gardner too (but not to start).

  242. choochoo April 2nd, 2010 at 4:03 pm

    No, stupid Stuckey—sometimes baseball players enter the game in other ways besides pinch hitting. Via injury, pinch running, defensive replacement and then they get a few at bats. Gardner did just that. In particular, he came into one game early last year and picked up multiple hits, like three or four, when someone went out early with an injury.

  243. Rich in NJ April 2nd, 2010 at 4:04 pm

    Stupid Stuckey again–a significant portion of his runs scored resulted from him pinch running, as opposed to “earning” the way on base, himself. Therefore your at-bat argument has about as much weight as the rest of your baseball acumen.

  250. Jerkface April 2nd, 2010 at 4:06 pm

    No, he didn’t.

    He hit .220 in April (exactly, look it up) when he was given the starting job out of ST. That is what you read and didn’t understand properly. Go back and look it up and post it here.

    He didn’t add 50 points to his batting average over 248 AB’s by picking up AB’s as a pinch runner or defensive replacements. That defies ANY workable knowledge of the 2009 season, baseball in general, and rudimentary math.

    GB, the only time that comments bother me are when they are from the regulars who I post with all the time; I really thought my concern was valid and I did get annoyed for being taken to task for these valid comments. Nonetheless, I took a break and I’m fine now……I’m stubborn, which serves me well in these situations.

  266. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 2nd, 2010 at 4:15 pm

    Jerkface, I hope he does his thing with the Yankees………If it wasn’t for Phil, Austin would still be in my tag line, lol.

    Glad Nick is ok……I’m so glad ST is over; these last games were really annoying injury-wise.

  267. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 2nd, 2010 at 4:16 pm

    Nick is the Calvin Coolidge of baseball players; he doesn’t exactly talk a lot – except with his bat.

  268. tex's friend April 2nd, 2010 at 4:16 pm

    The Yankees have no interest in Jermaine Dye.

    ___

    yes i realize that before, but well see when gardner/thames/winn suck it up.

  269. Jerkface April 2nd, 2010 at 4:17 pm

    I just want the season to begin, can’t wait to watch a game then check all the minor league reports and get out to the ballpark.

  270. choochoo April 2nd, 2010 at 4:18 pm

    I’m not going to continue this with you Stuckey. You’re not worth the effort. You’re clueless. Get back to me in a few months. See then who had the right read on this.

    GB7: He strikes out like 14% of the time on average, thats up there with guys who ’strike out’ (jeter, damon) but not guys who ’strike out (giambi, swisher)

    ———————————————————————————————————

    Romine strikes out at a considerably lower rate than Jeter did in the minors and even now, he’s still at 17% in his ML career.

  272. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 2nd, 2010 at 4:19 pm

    Johnson says he’s shut down tomorrow, will get treatment, but expects to play on Opening Day. Stay tuned. #nyy

    Johnson suffered a bone bruise on the inner part of right knee. #nyy

    They won’t bring him in during the season.

    The guy would need a month to get ready.

    He didn’t hit at all in the second half and is D is awful.

    He’s not getting a call from Cashman.

  274. Doreen - 2010 GTLU April 2nd, 2010 at 4:21 pm

    Betsy,

    It would still make him younger than me! :)

    Is tomorrow’s game a day game? We met someone on the plane coming home from Florida who said tickets were still available (last week) and they were looking forward to going to it when they got back home (they live in FL, obviously).

    Spring training seemed to last forever…

  275. Jerkface April 2nd, 2010 at 4:21 pm

    Jeter is 15% for his career in the minors, and Jeter walked a heckuva lot more. He has almost a 1:1 K:BB rate.

  276. Nick in SF in Larkspur April 2nd, 2010 at 4:21 pm

    I can’t wait for the season to begin ‘cos blog traffic will increase and we can get some bigger and better soccer discussions going.

    LOL Doreen…..

  278. YankWatcher April 2nd, 2010 at 4:23 pm

    Well, Cervelli was an infielder before the Yanks urged him to become a catcher. I really like Cervelli and I think Girardi, Pena and the pitchers like him too. He was born to be a catcher, he really understands baseball and calls a great game. Hopefully, this season we will see if he can continue to hit well — many fans don’t seem to want to give him credit for the 300 BA last season and pretty good numbers in ST this year (well over 300).

    Yes yes — Romine and Montero coming up — blah blah blah. How many catchers do you need? Posada should give it up and begin the transition to DH. I’d rather think about moving Montero to the outfield eventually than to move Cervelli. If Montero is such a drop dead hitter, why not put him somewhere he can play almost every day? Has Montero shown yet that he can call a game and play defense like Cervelli?

    Cervelli will be a starting catcher someday for somebody…look at the BA’s for starting catchers in both leagues and you will see that many teams would benefit from having Cervelli as their starting catcher…most “fans” on this blog don’t even want to acknowledge that he could ever even be a backup catcher for the Yanks. His defense is at least as good as Molina and he a much better hitter, base runner, everything. And he is only 24! One problem area for me is he seems to be injury prone…the broken wrist two years ago, concussion and now hamstring this spring.

  279. Nick in SF in Larkspur April 2nd, 2010 at 4:25 pm

    “most “fans” on this blog ”

    How dare you!!! :evil:

  280. Jerkface April 2nd, 2010 at 4:26 pm

    Most “fans” on this blog get the vapors whenever cervelli so much as looks at the underbelly

  281. SJ44 April 2nd, 2010 at 4:27 pm

    Have yo ever seen Montero run? He isn’t being moved to the OF.

    It’s not a video game. These guys aren’t interchangable parts.

    He’s either a C or a DH if he remains with the Yankees.

  282. tex's friend April 2nd, 2010 at 4:27 pm

    It doesnt have to be cervelli that moves. Romine may be able to transition to RF. Don’t think it would be Montero. It’s safe to say Posada’s yankee tenure will be done after this contract is up.

  283. stuckey April 2nd, 2010 at 4:27 pm

    “I’m not going to continue this with you Stuckey.”

    I don’t have a read on his. I haven’t made any Garnder predictions. I simply corrected your factual inaccuracies.

    Just keep hanging tough, Betsy. Two of the slugs that spend their time picking apart your posts slid in one day, and they hung around. Their main purpose is get crap started and keep it going until they find a new target. Ignore them or send a text to Chad/Sam and include the remarks. Save them in a word doc and e-mail them to the guys. I’, sure that there will be less resistance from them to correct it than we ever got from The Bearded Blunder.

  286. YankWatcher April 2nd, 2010 at 4:29 pm

    Montero is too young to be a DH. Even after the exit of Damon and Matsui Yanks still have lots of old guys that will be needing that spot.

  287. Erin April 2nd, 2010 at 4:29 pm

    __

    C/DH. he will share catching with Cervelli or Romine. I still think Romine can be transitioned to RF, fast with a strong arm.

  290. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 2nd, 2010 at 4:32 pm

    Aww, poor Ring. He and Logan both pitched very well; I wonder what decided it for the Yanks.

    GB, I hung tougher, though, lol. There’s only one poster I would ever report and he’s hardly here anymore; I don’t like to get into arguments and I sure hate to be the center of controversy. Sometimes the best thing to do is just drop it…

  291. GreenBeret7 April 2nd, 2010 at 4:35 pm

    Not saying that Montero could move to a parttime or fulltime outfield spot, but, I could see him get time in a small amount of time in a small outfield in an emergency. Not ideally, but, nobody ever thought that Berra or Howard could cover that huge left field at the old YS.

  292. tex's friend April 2nd, 2010 at 4:36 pm

    If his bat holds up, they will find a spot for him everyday.

    Andy and the $5 footlongs reminds me of something that happened on vacation. We were having dinner at this really nice seafood restaurant, but the decorations on the wall – well, all of us burst out laughing because all we could think of was that commercial (Gimme back that filet-o-fish…what if it were YOU hanging up on that wall) and we started singing it.

  303. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 2nd, 2010 at 4:46 pm

    Da Saint, thank you! I really didn’t feel like I was attacked, but it was simply frustrating trying to explain why I thought I was not being unreasonable in being concerned.

    I’m listening to a replay of the Kevin Towers interview that aired earlier on WFAN. He’s not the first guy to to say that Tampa is going to rebound this year; I think they are very dangerous. He said Romine opened up some eyes – he’s definitely impressed. AS to Montero, he said the sound off his bat is different.

  304. Phil the Thrill April 2nd, 2010 at 4:46 pm

    Romine needs to start taking walks. His OBP’s have been abysmal. He makes too many outs with the stick as things have been. Higgy and Murphy behind him both show some patience at the dish.

    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.
