Notes from Saturday

Yankees Baseball

It looks like Mark Teixeira is running the bases in that picture. He’s actually sprinting out of Tampa.

The Yankees are happily making their way to Boston this afternoon. Like Derek Jeter said yesterday, the team’s been anxious to break camp for about a week now, and Anthony DiComo had a great little tidbit about Joba Chamberlain begging Nick Swisher not to take any pitches today.

There was a lot of first-pitch swinging and a lot of taking it easy around the bases in this afternoon’s game against the Yankees minor leaguers.

The good news is, the Yankees are making their way north with a roster that ultimately wasn’t affected by the injuries of the past week or so. All of the questionable players reported to camp this morning feeling better than the day before. The roster is set. The lineup is decided.

Spring training is over.

The season begins tomorrow.

Yankees Baseball

There’s Jeter and Jesus. That’s the Yankees captain and their top prospect in an AP photo from today’s game. Credit the Associated Press for the Teixeira photo as well.

Jorge Posada played today, so he’s clearly good to go, and manager Joe Girardi said he expects Nick Johnson to also be in the Opening Day lineup. “He should be okay tomorrow,” Girardi said. “He feels pretty good today.” Johnson said he’s still sore, but he has no worries about being able to play tomorrow.

Damaso Marte was cleared to play catch today, and Francisco Cervelli was cleared to catch in the bullpen, take batting practice and ride a stationary bike. Cervelli will run tomorrow and said he could have played today if necessary. His hamstring is, “a little tight, but not like the first day.”

Mike Rivera was released.

Girardi on the decision to send Boone Logan to Triple-A: “He did everything right and pitched really well. We’re excited about him. We believe at some point he’ll have an impact.”

Marcus Thames on making the team after his slow start to the spring: “(I was) beating myself up a little bit, trying to do a little bit too much because I’ve always wanted to come back here and play,” Thames said. “That day I hit the home run (against Detroit), that felt good. I hadn’t put a charge in one all spring and it finally happened. I finally got that feel back.”

Thames hit another homer today, his third in the past eight days.

In case you missed it in the game post, neither of the players the Yankees lost in the Rule 5 Draft will be coming back to the team. At least not yet. Zach Kroenke cleared waivers and accepted a spot in the Diamondbacks minor league system. Kanekoa Texeira has made the Mariners bullpen after a terrific spring.

Also in case you missed it, Chad Moeller has been brought back to the Yankees organization on a minor league deal. He’s essentially the third-string catcher in New York and Jesus Montero’s backup in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Because most of the writers have flights to catch tonight, Girardi started his pregame media session with fake quotes about the game, the joke being that we could use those and not talk to him afterward. Girardi made up some stuff about Vazquez’s outing, then said, “There were runners at second and third and I walked Montero.” Of course, that situation never really happened, but at the time it was pretty solid manager-to-media comedy.

The Red Sox seem to have their lineup set for tomorrow according to our old friend Pete Abe.

For whatever it’s worth, major league Yankees beat the minor league Yankees 9-6. Robinson Cano’s terrific spring continued with a 2-for-2 day. Jesus Montero and Brad Suttle also had two hits. Colin Curtis doubled, Ivan Nova was knocked around and Shade Heathcott was a lot faster than I expected.

    I really hate the expression “good to go”

  2. CRAWDADDY (Boycott ESPN-NY) April 3rd, 2010 at 4:26 pm

    Thanks for the reports today.

  3. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 4:27 pm

    Tex always has the funniest expressions, lol.

    I don’t like hearing that Cervelli’s hamstring is still tight…

    I’m really glad that NJ will be ready for opening day…and that Marte appears to be ok and that Thames made the team.

    Thanks Chad!

  4. Erin April 3rd, 2010 at 4:28 pm

    That’s hilarious that Joba asked Swish not to take any pitches :lol:

    Glad to hear Cervelli, Posada and Johnson are feeling better

  5. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 4:28 pm

    Oops I meant to mention Boone Logan; he looks like he could be more than just a throw in in the Vasquez deal.

    I am incredibly disappointed to find that Juan Miranda did not make the final Opening Day roster, but I still stand by my post, here, where I think that if Nick Johnson spends any time on the DL this year that Miranda should be called up and will provide the team with a lot of left handed power. I’ll be watching him closely in the minors.

  7. Garden Inn April 3rd, 2010 at 4:29 pm

    If we were to get swept in the opening series, at least we could say many of the guys — which seems like half the roster — isn’t 100%.

  8. Kim April 3rd, 2010 at 4:30 pm

    Chad,
    Any idea the plan for Pilittere who spent all of Spring Training in camp and now they’ve signed Chad Moeller?

  9. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 4:30 pm

    Chad, just a question. Since Phil is staying in Tampa, who is overseeing his workouts/extended ST games? Scott Aldred?

  10. CR9 April 3rd, 2010 at 4:30 pm

    anon

    If I impersonated someone, wouldn’t I be banned?

    All you do is report to Chad or Sam, impostors, and they are banned.

    I am fairly positive that I have not been banned, but that could be one of my paranoid delusions :)

  11. Casanova Wong April 3rd, 2010 at 4:31 pm

    Slade is stupid fast. He looked great in CF too. Gonna be a very exciting player to keep track of.

  12. Phil the Thrill April 3rd, 2010 at 4:31 pm

    Shade Heathcott?

  13. GreenBeret7 April 3rd, 2010 at 4:32 pm

    Having Moeller at Scranton, along with Wynegar is going to be a major boost to Montero’s further education as a ML catcher, especially with footwork and game calling. Both are quality ML defensive catchers and should be able to polish Montero’s skills for a late season call-up and for 2011.

  14. Phil the Thrill April 3rd, 2010 at 4:33 pm

    Wait till you guys see Slade throw from the OF. He’s got a phenomenal arm.

  15. CRAWDADDY (Boycott ESPN-NY) April 3rd, 2010 at 4:34 pm

    I agree GB7.

    One more thing, I like watching Montero play because it seems like he enjoys playing the game with a smile on his face.

  16. Rich in NJ April 3rd, 2010 at 4:34 pm

    As soon as I read that Moeller was released by the O’s, I thought the Yankees would sign him. It would be nice if an OF upgrade became available.

  17. Tom in N.J. April 3rd, 2010 at 4:34 pm

    Yankees/Rockies world series.

  18. Benny Blanco April 3rd, 2010 at 4:34 pm

    lets go for 28! I’m glad to hear that NJ will be in the lineup on Sunday.

  19. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 4:34 pm

    I don’t want to get too excited about Slade Heathcott, but it’s sure hard not to.

  20. RhapsodyInBlue April 3rd, 2010 at 4:35 pm

    Thanks for the great health related news Chad.

    Team and fans anxious to get the 2010 season underway!

  21. Benny Blanco April 3rd, 2010 at 4:36 pm

    And btw, shouldnt the name of this post read “notes from Saturday”?

    Today is Saturday? Right?

  22. CRAWDADDY (Boycott ESPN-NY) April 3rd, 2010 at 4:36 pm

    “As soon as I read that Moeller was released by the O’s, I thought the Yankees would sign him. It would be nice if an OF upgrade became available.”

    You sound just like Ken Rosenthal.;)

  23. Chad Jennings April 3rd, 2010 at 4:37 pm

    Nothing official on Pilittere’s assignment, but it doesn’t look good for him. I don’t think he’ll be released, but he could end up on the phantom DL. It’s a shame too, because he’s really improved his throwing, which was probably the weakest part of his game.

    Aldred will be breaking camp with the Triple-A team on Sunday. My guess is that Nardi Contreras will oversee Hughes in those extended spring starts.

  24. Yanksgal07 April 3rd, 2010 at 4:38 pm

    Just wishful thinking on Chad’s part …he can’t wait for Sunday night too :)

    Go Yankees 2010 !!!

  25. Chad Jennings April 3rd, 2010 at 4:38 pm

    What do you know, it is Saturday. My days have been running together for about two weeks now.

  28. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 4:39 pm

    Chad, thanks – I was hoping Aldred would be there after the comments I’ve heard here about Nardi.

  29. Zach S April 3rd, 2010 at 4:39 pm

    • There’s Jeter and Jesus.
    ***********************************************

    That made me LOL.

    LOL I didn’t even notice it said Sunday.

  31. GreenBeret7 April 3rd, 2010 at 4:40 pm

    The outfield throw of the game was the throw from Mesa that shorthopped Montero. A bullet and low enough on the fly that it could have been cut off. That kid has some serious guddy-up on his throws and almost always right on target. Just his pitch selection that needs work. At least he didn’t strikeout today and his last fly to left really carried without it being his best swing. He’s a Tampa hitter to watch this year.

  32. Erin April 3rd, 2010 at 4:40 pm

    m April 3rd, 2010 at 4:39 pm

    I second this; great job!! :)

  33. Yanksgal07 April 3rd, 2010 at 4:41 pm

    Well…I just listened to the Joe Girardi Show …Michael Kay thinks instead of the “Hughes Rules” it should be called “Philosophies”. How well did his Generation Trey (hated that name) work out??? ..lol…

    Go Yankees 2010 !!!

  34. Rich in NJ April 3rd, 2010 at 4:41 pm

    See Chad, we do need an edit function. j/k

  35. CRAWDADDY (Boycott ESPN-NY) April 3rd, 2010 at 4:41 pm

    “Chad, thanks – I was hoping Aldred would be there after the comments I’ve heard here about Nardi.”

    Betsy,

    Nobody questioned Nardi’s coaching abilities, SJ just felt Nardi is a self promoter. Also, Aldred has to stay with his pitching staff as they start playing games on Thursday.

  36. Casanova Wong April 3rd, 2010 at 4:43 pm

    Hey Crawdaddy, RE; Montero-

    If you were an insta-millionaire by the age of 16 and could hit a ball like he could you’d have a bigass smile on your face all the time too.

  37. SJ44 April 3rd, 2010 at 4:45 pm

    Betsy,

    he’s a good coach. Just more self promoter than guru.

    Nothing has to be done except click the pitch clicker in Hughes’ extended spring starts. It’s not a big deal for anyone to oversee them at this point.

    I see the NJ hate brigade have run away today. What a surprise.

  38. Doreen - 2010 GTLU April 3rd, 2010 at 4:45 pm

    Hmm. Didn’t realize that signing Moeller would mean Pilittere would be displaced. I know he’s not truly a prospect, but he’s a solid guy. Are there maybe other plans for him?

  39. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 4:47 pm

    Great article on Alex

  40. Rich in NJ April 3rd, 2010 at 4:48 pm

    People will love OBP Jesus before long.

  41. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 4:51 pm

    Craw, good point!
    SJ, ok good – I guess it’s better than Eiland being down there; he might ruin Phil, lol.

    I don’t know why, but I had it on the Wheelhouse on SNY last night and they were doing all sorts of Met/Yankee comparisons. They led off into a commercial stating why Phil could be a bust – I know that was designed to tick me off, lol. The real question was an email from a fan about Jon Niese/Phil Hughes and who would have the better year. Brandon Tierney picked Phil, but only based on experience and the team behind him. Mark Malusis agreed about the team, but made a point to say that Phil has better stuff. I don’t know much about Jon Niese other than that it looks like he could be a good pitcher in the NL. Was he a highly regarded pitcher before last year?

  42. Thomas Robust April 3rd, 2010 at 4:52 pm

    Great job Chad.
    Your spring (and winter) coverage has been great.
    Just what this blog needs.
    Hope you have a great year covering the Yankees.
    It must’ve been great to start with a playoff with champions.
    It’s too early though to write that book.

  43. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 4:52 pm

    I went into a description in the other thread about why Kay is sometimes impossible to listen to. I heard “Phil-osophies”. Oy vey.

  44. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 4:54 pm

    NJ is going to be a target by the media. Joel Sherman has been ok this spring, but his “humorous” nuggets about Nick are stupid. Also, I wouldn’t consider someone with a bruised knee “injured”; what happened against the O’s could happen to anyone.

  45. SJ44 April 3rd, 2010 at 5:01 pm

    Betsy,

    We heard the same stuff from bloggers and media alike about AJ last year. The same people predicted long DL stays for him. We saw how that worked out.

    Only idiots predict injuries.

    I bet like AJ last year, NJ will have a healthy season.

    Being a DH will help him in that regard.

  46. NITRO April 3rd, 2010 at 5:04 pm

    You can be sure of one thing – Nardi will rave about Hughes after his simulated game(s).

  47. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 5:05 pm

    SJ, I think it’s utterly foolish to predict injuries, especially stuff like the kind Nick has suffered (freaky things). His wrist appears to be fine, finally, so that’s good. If he gets hurt, it’s not because he’s some injury magnet – it’s because that’s life in sports. People are still predicting AJ to go down. As he said, his injury history will always be with him, but for me – he’s just like any other pitcher. If he gets an aching arm, it’s because he’s a pitcher, not because he’s injury prone.

  48. RhapsodyInBlue April 3rd, 2010 at 5:05 pm

    NJ will have a career season if he stays healthy.

    I believe he will.

  49. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 5:06 pm

    I don’t care if Nardi raves about Phil or not; he’s going to continue working on his change and his other pitches just trying to get ready for the season. I admit that I can’t wait until April 15th……

  50. Dina Temple-Raston April 3rd, 2010 at 5:11 pm

    How much are you willing to bet me that Nick Johnson will not be healthy enough to play more than 90 games this season?

  51. blake April 3rd, 2010 at 5:13 pm

    “NJ will have a career season if he stays healthy.

    I believe he will.”

    I agree, if he can play 140 games I think he’ll have a great chance to break a lot of career highs. He fouled a ball off his leg people…it could happen to anyone. Not a big deal.

  52. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 5:15 pm

    Of course it’s not a big deal, but anytime he feels an ache, it’s going to be as if the apocalypse is upon us.

  53. Dina Temple-Raston April 3rd, 2010 at 5:16 pm

    “it could happen to anyone.”

    But “freak” injuries tend to happen to him a lot.

    a lot.

    no?

  54. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 5:16 pm

    http://www.nj.com/yankees/inde.....ithou.html

    Mike Harkey’s in trouble, lol

  55. blake April 3rd, 2010 at 5:19 pm

    “But “freak” injuries tend to happen to him a lot.

    a lot.

    no?”

    Yes, but thats even more reason to believe that there is a good chance he could have a healthy season. He has no lingering or structural injuries to reoccur. Fouling a ball off your leg is part of the game, same as Tex getting hit the other night. I’ll be surprised if he’s not in the lineup tomorrow.

  56. CRAWDADDY (Boycott ESPN-NY) April 3rd, 2010 at 5:21 pm

    Betsy,

    He’s the beatwriter that should be covering the Yankees for ESPN-NY.

  57. SJ44 April 3rd, 2010 at 5:22 pm

    I’ll take that bet. I bet he plUs in as many games as Matsui played last year. I believe that number was in the 130 range.

  58. SJ44 April 3rd, 2010 at 5:24 pm

    “plays”. Sorry for the typo.

  59. Chuck58 April 3rd, 2010 at 5:25 pm

    Nicky will primarily bat, not play the field. He’s a good bet to exceed 90 games.

  60. Chuck58 April 3rd, 2010 at 5:26 pm

    Oh, and, “Hi, Betsy! ;-)”

  61. Tom in N.J. April 3rd, 2010 at 5:26 pm

    Matsui only started 116 games last season.

  62. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 5:27 pm

    Craw, I agree, but as long as he’s covering the Yankees, I’m fine. ESPN stinks in every way possible and I hope Yankee fans avoide that crap like the plague.

    Hi Chuck. :mad:

  63. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 5:27 pm

    Sorry, I had to do that – the :mad: just makes me :)

  64. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 5:28 pm

    I see they let the dirty old smiley out of his room…….

  65. SJ44 April 3rd, 2010 at 5:29 pm

    Tom,

    I was counting the post-season in my totals.

  66. Chuck58 April 3rd, 2010 at 5:31 pm

    haha! Yup.

  67. blake April 3rd, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    Matsui Games played :

    2006: 51
    2007: 143
    2008: 93
    2009: 142

    Thats an average of about 108 games over the last 4 years..and Matsui is 4 years older than Johnson with chronic knee problems. His missed games weren’t because of “freak injuries”.

  68. Joe from Long Island April 3rd, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    Chad – have a safe trip to Boston. Are you getting any time off?

  69. Dina Temple-Raston April 3rd, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    fair enough.

    sj44, what do you think of josh reddick?

  70. Bret the Hitman April 3rd, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    Hello LOHUD,

    It’s feeling a lot like baseball right now. There is no better drug.

  71. GreenBeret7 April 3rd, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    Even in the regular season, he was healthy enough to play in 142 games. 9 of those games that he only appeared as a pinch hitter were in that 9 game straight stretch in NL parks. If Johnson gets into 142 regular season games, he’ll put up numbers similar to Matsui’s, though most likely with fewer homers. He was not my favorite choice as a signing, but, he’ll be just fine.

  72. Tom in N.J. April 3rd, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    SJ, I know.

    There was no malice, nor any One-upmanship intended; I was just throwing that out there.

  73. GreenBeret7 April 3rd, 2010 at 5:38 pm

    Reddick was a very good high school player here in Savannah, but, don’t expect him to be a big star. Given his father’s situation, though, you have to hope he has a good career and makes a little money. He’s a good kid.

  74. blake April 3rd, 2010 at 5:40 pm

    Watching Dice-K pitch on MLB network. Looks about like always….lot of slop, lot of balls, lot of deep counts. I would hate playing defense behind him.

  75. SJ44 April 3rd, 2010 at 5:40 pm

    I think Reddick is a AAAA player.

  76. blake April 3rd, 2010 at 5:41 pm

    Speaking of Reddick…he just made a great play to save Dice-K a couple of runs.

  77. Doreen - 2010 GTLU April 3rd, 2010 at 5:42 pm

    Dice-K seems like one of the luckiest pitchers throwing.

  78. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 5:44 pm

    He does seem to work his way out of jams a lot, so he’s absolutely fine for a #4 starter, but he’s clearly not the pitcher he was touted to be.

  79. GreenBeret7 April 3rd, 2010 at 5:46 pm

    And all of this time I always thought that Igawa was the luckiest pitcher throwing. At least, he can’t get the Yankee infielders hurt pitching in Scranton.

    Poor Logan – I feel so badly for him. I hope he pitches well in AAA and makes it hard for the Yanks NOT to bring him up.

  81. Garden Inn April 3rd, 2010 at 5:48 pm

    Logan is this year’s Billy Traber.

  82. GreenBeret7 April 3rd, 2010 at 5:49 pm

    If NYY needs a relief pitcher, Logan should be the first call-up. If it’s a starter, I’m hoping that Hirsh gets at least a shot to fill in.

  83. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 5:50 pm

    No, Logan appears to be a lot more talented than Traber..

  84. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 5:51 pm

    GB, it depends on how well he does in AAA. He has to go down there and continue to perform..

  85. Pat M. April 3rd, 2010 at 5:51 pm

    Of course. That’s as it should be. I’m hoping that being in the Atlanta system last year and around this Yankee staff this spring that’s he’s learned something. We’ll see. I’m not all that confident in Royce Ring.

  89. charlestonchew April 3rd, 2010 at 5:56 pm

    I just did this fantasy draft while writing a paper, paying little attention. I think it turned out pretty well. Thoughts?

    http://games.espn.go.com/flb/c.....sonId=2010

  90. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 5:59 pm

    I think Logan is young, so hopefully he’s got room for improvement. After the Javy trade, fans were absolutely killing him. Since he was just a throw in, I have no idea why, but I hope the Braves made a mistake.

  91. charlestonchew April 3rd, 2010 at 6:00 pm

    We need to make Mitre the long reliever and maybe give him a chance to start. He could fetch something decent in a trade later in the year. He won’t crack the rotation with the Yanks, though he is valuable in the bullpen. If we can get a good AAA-ML reliever or a mid-to-high ceiling A player, I’d jump on it.

  92. Rich on the 6 train April 3rd, 2010 at 6:00 pm

    What ashame, Logan should be on the big league roster. I know the Yanks are financially obligated to Marte, but he does not appear to be ready. He always seems hurt. I also felt Golson is a better option than Thames. Gives another option for speed.
    At least the Yanks have the depth others would die to have.

  93. GreenBeret7 April 3rd, 2010 at 6:04 pm

    Sitting Golson on an ML bench for long stretches isn’t going to help him progress at all. He needs to play a lot and get his swing straightened out. What pitcher would you toss off of the team to make room for Logan?

    Traber and Logan have as much in common as Strom Thurmond and Nate Thurmond.

  95. Rich on the 6 train April 3rd, 2010 at 6:08 pm

    I don’t think Golson is here to progress. We are not talking about Curtis.

    As for throwing a pitcher. I would not us those words. I believe Marte is rusty from whatever was aching him. If your one left hand option is below average at best then why have one.

  96. KevinP April 3rd, 2010 at 6:13 pm

    Not to gloat, but I find it funny how few people read or at least comment on Pete Abe’s new blog.

    Do Red Sox fans not care?
    Does he need to build an audience?

  97. Rich in NJ April 3rd, 2010 at 6:16 pm

    Golson will be entering his age 24 season. He showed some progress at Reading in 2008, but regressed in 2009. If the Yankees can identify a correctable flaw in his swing, he has a shot at being a useful ML.

  98. Frank April 3rd, 2010 at 6:20 pm

    “Traber and Logan have as much in common as Strom Thurmond and Nate Thurmond.”

    There’s more than two ways to say a garden variety lefty specialist?

  99. Bret the Hitman April 3rd, 2010 at 6:23 pm

    Logan and Melancon give us good bullpen depth. Most teams don’t have quality major league ready arms like that stashed away in the minor leagues. Bullpens are constantly in flux so I’m sure we’ll see the both of them with the big club at some point this year.

    I don’t like our OF depth as much. Even though I like Thames and Winn, both have considerable flaws and/or risks.

    I really wish the Yankees traded Gardner for Javy instead of Melky but the Braves were holding all the cards in that deal. When you have one of the top starters in the NL on a short reasonable contract, you can drive a hard bargain.

    In my estimation, Atlanta targeted Melky and would’ve never settled for Gardner.

    Some may argue that the Braves wanted Gardner but were denied by Cashman. I disagree, I think the Yankees being a win-now organization with deep pockets really needed Javy in the rotation more than the Braves needed our players.

    I wish Melky were still with the team and would be starting in LF tomorrow.

    I don’t think Gardner will amount to much and certainly Melky will outproduce Gardner this year.

    Let’s make a bet.

    Any takers?

  100. austinmac April 3rd, 2010 at 6:25 pm

    I knew Heathcott was fast, but I didn’t realize quite how fast he is. He gets down the line like Gardner. I did also think he would be bigger, but he will surely fill out.

    I chuckled when Showalter said in evaluating young prospects he would see if they already had whiskers because those players have less maturing left to do.

  101. Doreen - 2010 GTLU April 3rd, 2010 at 6:27 pm

    Bret the Hitman -

    I agree with you. :?

    I miss Melky. He fit very well here. BUT, I am very glad to have Javy in the rotation.

    I think Colin Curtis will be a call-up. But I think Gardner will not get it started and Winn will get more playing time and stick.

  102. Tom in N.J. April 3rd, 2010 at 6:28 pm

    Sherman predicted that the Sox would get A-Gone from SD for a package that includes Bard, Reddick, and Tazawa.

  103. Bret the Hitman April 3rd, 2010 at 6:29 pm

    Doreen,

    How did Gardner win the job in the first place?

    Didn’t he bat like .200 this spring?

  104. Doreen - 2010 GTLU April 3rd, 2010 at 6:29 pm

    Oh, Bret,

    Also, you have to remember the money. Melky would have cost the Yankees more than Gardner. I would have gladly embraced that cost, but I’m not the Yankees admin. :)

  105. Tarheelyank April 3rd, 2010 at 6:29 pm

    Bret

    The jury is still out on Gardner. But, I agree with “Melky will outproduce Gardner this year.”

    So, no bet from me.

  106. Doreen - 2010 GTLU April 3rd, 2010 at 6:31 pm

    Bret -

    Yeah. He didn’t do so well this spring. Unfortunately, no one else stepped it up this spring, either, so there ya go.

    Hey, Gardner had a great spring training last year and then petered out. Maybe he’ll pick it up in April? I don’t think so. As I said, I expect Winn to eventually get some starts and turn it up.

  107. Tom in N.J. April 3rd, 2010 at 6:33 pm

    Did the Braves even want Gardner?

  108. Steve April 3rd, 2010 at 6:34 pm

    This just in ……

    The Yankees will not go 162 – 0 in the regular season. For those bellyachers, whiners, complainers, and naysayers, it just will not happen.
    By the same token, the Yankees will not go 11 – 0 in the postseason. Be prepared for peaks and valleys in 2010 just like every other team in Yankee history.

  109. Rich in NJ April 3rd, 2010 at 6:35 pm

    “There’s more than two ways to say a garden variety lefty specialist?”

    Traber is a soft tosser who relies on pinpoint command and deception, neither of which he possess very often.

    Logan has velo and a breaking ball. He merely needs reasonable command. This will be his age 25 season. So there’s still a chance for him to be a ML.

  110. pat April 3rd, 2010 at 6:35 pm

    “Sherman predicted that the Sox would get A-Gone from SD for a package that includes Bard, Reddick, and Tazawa.”

    Before or after it was announced Tazawa was having TJ surgery?

  111. Rick April 3rd, 2010 at 6:38 pm

    Brett Gardner will never be able to track a ball with the ease of Colin Curtis. He laso needs to learn how to be an alley hitter IF he can be taught at all.

  112. Tom in N.J. April 3rd, 2010 at 6:38 pm

    Pat, it was in the Post’s “Baseball 2010″ pull-out.

    I do not know when it went to press. ..

  113. yanksforlife April 3rd, 2010 at 6:38 pm

    chad any predictions from u??

  114. Bret the Hitman April 3rd, 2010 at 6:38 pm

    Doreen,

    I think Cashman preferred to keep Melky but the Braves insisted. There was a big question mark in LF at the time and Cashman sought to solve a major problem in the rotation without creating another albeit smaller one in LF. If Cashman had managed to slide Gardner in place of Melky for Javy, this team would be stronger. This could be a breakout year for Melky.

    I remember Cashman didn’t cave when the Sox wanted Jackson, Kennedy and Dunn for Granderson. Cashman was able to slide in Coke in place of Dunn because the market for OF’s was stronger than the one for SP’s. The Yankees needed Vazquez more than they needed Granderson. Had they missed out on Granderson on account of Mike Dunn, they still had options at the time on the free agent market like Damon. Had they missed out on Vazquez they would’ve been in big trouble, thus they caved in the Braves demands for Melky in that package over Gardner.

  115. Joe from Long Island April 3rd, 2010 at 6:40 pm

    Bret, I think you might have something there, in regards to the Braves wanting Melky over Gardner. Two things that I think factored into Cash’s decision making were that the Yanks have won with the likes of Chad Curtis and Shane Spencer in LF; the key was good pitching, and that it would be only a short term issue, as Carl Crawford is on the horizon.

    Good pitching can make up for a lot of weaknesses.

  116. Doreen - 2010 GTLU April 3rd, 2010 at 6:42 pm

    Bret -

    That sounds like a reasonable scenario.

    The Braves are not a dumb organization.

    They got the Yankees’ best “4th outfielder.”

    I do think Melky’s going to have a very good year for the Braves. Apparently right now he’s kind of a floating outfielder? Am I correct? But I think he’ll impress.

  117. Doreen - 2010 GTLU April 3rd, 2010 at 6:44 pm

    Do you think Crawford is going to be targeted in the same way CC (the other one!) was targeted?

  118. Frank April 3rd, 2010 at 6:45 pm

    If the Braves knew Heyward was actually ready, I’m not sure they’d have wanted Melky or Gardner. As is, Melky is going to platoon in left for Atlanta. If they knew Heyward was ready, I think they may have been looking young infielder with Chipper Jones being deep into the back 9 of his career.

  119. Doreen - 2010 GTLU April 3rd, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    Frank -

    Do you think Melky will be spun into an infielder somehow?

  120. Fran (the original) and OPPC member April 3rd, 2010 at 6:47 pm

    Frank,

    I agree with you. Heyward looks like the real deal. Atlanta actually has a very good team this season.

  121. Rich in NJ April 3rd, 2010 at 6:48 pm

    I think Melky could find his way back to the Yankees, although it’s premature at this point.

  122. Frank April 3rd, 2010 at 6:48 pm

    “Do you think Crawford is going to be targeted in the same way CC (the other one!) was targeted?”

    Is there another way? They’ll wine and dine, do a little recruiting, and offer WAY more money than anyone else. Still rather see them go after Werth than Crawford though.

  123. Bret the Hitman April 3rd, 2010 at 6:49 pm

    Joe,

    Yeah, I agree Cashman factored Crawford into his decision to pull the trigger on the version of the Vasquez trade that involved Melky in the package instead of Gardner. It’s just one year of Gardner over Melky until Crawford arrives. I’m greedy though. And I wanted to see Melky prove himself in New York before being shipped out. He joined the organization as a 17 year old. It was a tough loss for me. I enjoyed his game and saw (and still see) great potential in him. The Braves are smart. Gardner is a fringe major leaguer, thus the blatant overtures for Crawford. I don’t think the Yankees FO is under any illusions that Gardner will have the kind of season required to negate a big contract offer to Crawford coming soon.

  124. Fran (the original) and OPPC member April 3rd, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    Is there another way? They’ll wine and dine, do a little recruiting, and offer WAY more money than anyone else. Still rather see them go after Werth than Crawford though.
    ***************************
    Reggie did have dinner with Werth last week.

  125. Frank April 3rd, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    Doreen:

    Probably not. He does have some value to the Braves because he can play all three spots. I don’t know that he brings an infielder worth having.

  126. Doreen - 2010 GTLU April 3rd, 2010 at 6:52 pm

    Frank,

    Really?

    Crawford is younger. Why do you prefer Werth?

  127. Doreen - 2010 GTLU April 3rd, 2010 at 6:55 pm

    I’ll never forget the day Melky hit for the cycle. He was intense!

    Sometimes, you have to make tough decisions. ANd there was no way the Yankees were going to take the chance of going into the post-season with only 3 starters ever again.

  128. Frank April 3rd, 2010 at 6:55 pm

    Doreen:

    I think Werth is a better offensive player and offers more versatility as an OF. Probably be a little less expensive too.

  129. Joe from Long Island April 3rd, 2010 at 7:02 pm

    Bret, we’re on the same page, and I think Cash is also. That’s why they signed Randy Winn. That’s why Gardner is in LF instead of CF (not wanting to jerk Granderson around with a position change if/when Gardner goes to the bench).

  130. GreenBeret7 April 3rd, 2010 at 7:04 pm

    Just because I want to see the crying start again…Austin Jackson was 2-5 with a homer, 3 runs scored, 2 RBI and a stolen base to finish at .356 with 3 homers, 8 RBI, 4 doubles, 3 triples, 18 runs scored and 5 steals.

  131. bodhisattva - Destiny Wears Pinstripes April 3rd, 2010 at 7:06 pm

    ====

    I predict Melky will steal the CF everyday job out from under McLouth, who has had a very tough spring.

    Cox loves Cabrera – marveled over a running over-the-shoulder catch in deep LC he made with the wind blowing in his first ST apperance.

    He will play LF vs. RHP, and will play a lot vs. LHP in center, I predict. He’ll also spell THEE KID in RF from time to time. So he will float around (haha, some guy said he ‘floated to the ball like Adruw” in one comment…nice), but his bottom will barely touch the bench.

    Like I said, I like Melky better than Nate (although they gave up a lot for Nate) and expect him to be the everyday CF before long.

    BTW, diggin’ the Melky love, here. It’s a shame he didn’t get enough while he was with us.

  133. Bret the Hitman April 3rd, 2010 at 7:07 pm

    Frank,

    If Werth can be had for cheaper than Crawford then I’d prefer Werth but I don’t think that will be the case. Free agency rewards the HR. All of the biggest contracts to hitters reflect that. I also think that the Yankees have plenty of power moving forward with Arod, Tex, Cano and Montero. They don’t seem to have as much speed, contact and base stealing ability on the horizon, thus a contract offer to Crawford suits this particular team IMHO.

  134. trisha - OPPC member who sees, hears, and knows all. 28 is on its way!!!!! April 3rd, 2010 at 7:08 pm

    Bod, haven’t read any posts at all but saw yours when I was making sure mine posted.

    Why do baseball players like Tex carry their batting gloves in their hands??

    They could run so much faster if they didn’t hold them in their hands like that.

    Is it to protect their hands if they dive head first? If so, why not leave them on their hands??

  137. GreenBeret7 April 3rd, 2010 at 7:10 pm

    Agree with you about Austin Jackson. Playing in Detroit away from the NY pressure can only help him.

  142. Chuck58 April 3rd, 2010 at 7:16 pm

    Alex, I think they carry the batting gloves like that because it prevents them from suffering a “jammed finger” by sticking the finger directly into the clay when sliding. I agree, it’s curious…

    LMAO. I’m hoping that he has a ROY type season, too. He’s got a lot of talent. I find it somewhat interesting that Lloyd McLendon (Tigers hitting coach) put the leg kick back into his spring after NYY had him remove it. He says that it gives him the additional power that was missing and kept him from jumping at the ball so much.

    As much as I hated to see him traded, NYY had to make that deal. You don’t pass on a player like Granderson when you have a shot at him. Jackson’s a really nice young kid, too. He should be a real asset in Detroit.

    Most base runners have always carried something in their hands for the reason stated. In the old days, they’d pick up a handful of dirt. Then, it evolved into the gloves. Jeter wears a sliding glove with a wrist support and a flap that he sticks in the palm of his hand.

    Wild green onions from your lawn? I’d be so afraid. We get dandelions and I know dandelion greens are supposed to be great – but since we get our lawn treated (and obviously, since i have dandelions, I doubt the “treatment” works), I’d be afraid to eat the greens.

  150. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 3rd, 2010 at 7:24 pm

    Austin seems to be quite critical of the Yankees. Well, I wish him luck, but I’m not going to pretend I’ll be checking the sports pages to see how he does; I’m very, very happy with Granderson.

    I have no interest in Werth, who looks like Grizzly Ben (I think that’s his name – there was a tv show about some mountain man that lived with a bear). I have some in Crawford, but I do not want the Yankees blowing too much $$$$ on him. Unfortunately, I think they will.

    Yeah, those are the ideal trades, unless you can pull off a Bobby Abreu type trade. Jackson didn’t say who had him drop his leg kick, whether it was K. Long or Wynegar, but, I’d be curious to know who it was. He’s a real talent, though.

  158. pistol pete April 3rd, 2010 at 11:05 pm

    I’m not in favor of a huge contract offer for Crawford. His obp is weak for a huge contract player and has only modest power. I’d rather spend the money on pitching, Cliff Lee will be out there at the end of the year. Another top lefty in Yankee Stadium would be awesome. Imagine CC, Lee, and Burnett 1/2/3. If Granderson has a good year, Swisher is signed for 2010 they can find an effective outfielder for a year or two that’s productive. It always about pitching, pitching, and pitching.

    La deuxième partie de cet essai se penche sur la question de la politique des soins de santé en Allemagne et aux Etats-Unis depuis le début de l’ère néolibérale. Il examine les implications que ses dépenses croissantes ont eu sur d’autres politiques sociales, y compris le marché du travail. Il affirme que l’inflation rapide des coûts des soins de santé a causé tous les différents systèmes de protection sociale à souffrir de contrôler la maîtrise des coûts. Il est l’affirmation selon laquelle les États-Unis ont réussi à créer un système de soins de santé important à l’ère moderne, et qu’il est le seul Etat qui ne reconnaît pas l’accès universel comme un droit humain. Pourtant, il affirme également que le système de contribution fondé de l’Allemagne est finalement perpétuer leurs niveaux élevés de chômage et que reformations ne sont pas suffisantes. Cet essai ne fait pas l’affirmation selon laquelle le système de soins de santé de l’Allemagne est essentiellement un échec, mais plutôt, que ses tentatives pour maîtriser les coûts grâce à la réforme incrémentale n’est pas suffisant. Réforme radicale, comme dans leur structurel loi sur la réforme des soins de santé, est nécessaire dans un monde économique moderne (Giaimo et Manow 1998).

    Doorbusting with a Wingman isn’t essential to a successful Black Friday, but it sure helps. If there’s more than one item you want from a store, which is pretty typical, you can easily divide and conquer.

    Sent off second favourite against Camelot in the Derby, Bonfire finished only sixth of nine but is thought not to have handled the track. There must also be a chance he did not get home, and on either count he is entitled to put that disappointment behind him, returning to 10 furlongs in only the fifth race of his life.

    Reading and reviewing the photos and information brings tears to my eyes. These soldiers gave all for their country without question. It makes me sad to think of all the controversy by the politicians, and especially the news media regarding our military personnel serving both here in the United States and those serving overseas. It seems all they can report and discuss are the side of the military service why can they honor our military and report the things our military do, no matter where they happen to be stationed. May all those who served in all the wars rest in peace. I have visited our American cemeteries in Europe for those who have never done that, they can never understand how it impacts you when you see the rows and rows of crosses. It reminds one of how many of our young people gave their lives for our freedoms they never had a chance to watch their children grow up (for those who were married and had small children when they went to war) or to grow old with their spouses. May they all rest in peace!

    With the exception of a minor incident in 2009, it seems that Chiara’s wardrobe has been left largely unfiltered by her father and his campaign managers. Four years ago, when Bill ran for New York City public advocate, he noticed that early mailings featured a photo of Chiara wearing a gun pendant necklace. The campaign photoshopped the necklace from future pamphlets, and Bill issued a statement saying that he had removed it from Chiara’s wardrobe as well.
