Pregame notes: Park’s injury persists

Angels Yankees Baseball

Chan Ho Park’s hamstring injury is still bothering him, and the Yankees no longer believe he’ll be ready to come off the disabled list when his 15 days are over.

“He says it’s still somewhat tight,” manager Joe Girardi said. “It’s not sore or painful, it’s just somewhat tight, and if you push him too much while it’s tight you might re-injure it.”

Park will try to do long toss on Sunday, then he will go to the Yankees complex in Tampa on Monday. He’ll try to do long toss again on Monday and hopes to pitch off flat ground on Tuesday. “Then we’ll see where we’re at,” Girardi said.

It’s likely Park will pitch at least once on a rehab assignment, possibly with Class-A Tampa. Girardi said he would want to give Park a “competitive inning” before bringing him back to New York, but it doesn’t matter what level that inning occurs.

• Nick Johnson took extra batting practice this afternoon, and Girardi decided to stick with him against Ervin Santana, against whom Johnson is 2-for-4 with a home run and three walks. “At times you’re going to be in slumps,” Girardi said. “He’s had success against Santana so I’m throwing him right back in there.”

• No surprise, Alex Rodriguez’s run-in with Dallas Braden was again a topic of discussion this afternoon. “I have no problem with what Alex did,” Girardi said. CC Sabathia said it wouldn’t bother him if a player ran across the mound, and Mark Teixeira said he’s never heard of such an unwritten rule. “Once we heard his comments, we’ve been laughing about it ever since,” Teixeira said.

• Interestingly, Girardi said he puts no stock into most of baseball’s unwritten rules. Bunting to break up a not hitter. Stealing late in a five-run game. Stealing signs from a catcher. He said all of those are fair game. “I think in today’s game, you take every advantage you can get,” he said. Not throwing at hitters above the shoulders, Girardi said, is the one that he takes seriously. He also thinks it’s poor sportsmanship to swing at a 3-0 pitch with a huge lead.

• Someone asked about the impact of losing Johnny Damon and Hideki Matsui from the clubhouse. “The overall personality (of the team) hasn’t changed that much,” Girardi said.

• Girardi said in Oakland that Jorge Posada will get one game off during this Anaheim series, and logic dictates that it will be tomorrow for a day game after a night game. That means Francisco Cervelli will likely catch someone other than CC Sabathia for the first time this season.

• Jeff Mathis, who has caused some problems for the Yankees in the past, is on the Angels disabled list.

The Angels lineup:

Erick Aybar SS
Bobby Abreu RF
Torii Hunter CF
Hideki Matsui DH
Kendry Morales 1B
Juan Rivera LF
Maicer Izturis 3B
Howie Kendrick 2B
Bobby Wilson C

RHP Ervin Santana

UPDATE, 8:15 p.m.: Marc Carig might have the quote of the day concerning Dallas Braden’s mound ownership issue: “It ain’t like he brought it from home,” Derek Jeter said.

    top of the third, Nova gives up a single, walks a batter and another single to score a run.

    The play was a pitcher to first to home double play with Montero completely blocking off the plate. Get bowled over and held the ball. It was Hoover, a 220 pound catcher that tried running Montero over. Hoover’s a 34 year old minor league veteran

    3-1 scranton

    “Once we heard his comments, we’ve been laughing about it ever since,” Teixeira said.

    LOL Somehow I figured that would be the case.

    I have to bake on Sunday morning for brunch.

    Do I do:
    a) Chocolate chip cookies
    b) Brownies
    c) Both!

    (I am leaning toward both, but all opinions will be heard on this important matter)

  4. Erin April 23rd, 2010 at 8:09 pm

    Ledger_Yankees Jeter doesn’t get Braden being all protective of the mound: “It ain’t like he brought it from home.” #NYY

    :lol:

    I love Jeter!

  5. Doreen - GTLU Standings & Rules April 23rd, 2010 at 8:09 pm

    Erica -

    If I had time, I would do both.

    But if not, the cookies. Or the brownies. I know, that’s no help at all but I love both of those. Brownies. Brownies. Do the brownies. People love brownies. :)

  6. Doreen - GTLU Standings & Rules April 23rd, 2010 at 8:09 pm

    But if you have time, BOTH.

  7. Erin April 23rd, 2010 at 8:10 pm

    Erica-my vote is both. :)

  8. pat April 23rd, 2010 at 8:11 pm

    Brownies and if you could bake them right now and deliver them to me for the game I would be eternally grateful because reading that made me really want one.

  9. California April 23rd, 2010 at 8:11 pm

    Well, sounds like a season-ending kind of thing. Too bad.

  10. California April 23rd, 2010 at 8:13 pm

    So who’s the Kurt Suzuki in this lineup? Kendrick?

  11. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 8:14 pm

    end of the top of the 4th inning, 3-1

    Nova sets down the order 1-2-3 with 2 strikeouts. 4 innings, 2 hits, 1 run, 2 walks, 5 strikeouts

  12. California April 23rd, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    Record pace for the game at Baltimore: game officially over in 51 minutes, 17 seconds.

    So much for Jeter and Teixeira taking the high road on this issue, eh?

    Good for them. Even the poster boys for class and sportsmanship think this dust up is a bunch of nonsense.

    Doreen-

    I just got the best idea for you. (If you ever find you have too much free time on your hands)

    You should add a GTLU calendar to your blog!! That way you can just update the calendar with game times accordingly so people will always know when there is GTLU

  23. pat April 23rd, 2010 at 8:24 pm

    No. No GTLU tomorrow.

    There will be very few, if any, GTLU on Saturday. An exception might be a day that it’s raining and yet they’re still playing. :)

  25. SJ44 April 23rd, 2010 at 8:25 pm

    Says something for the quality of the clubhouse that guys like Jeter and Tex go public and have Alex’s back.

    California,

    Do you ever post anything other than nonsensical gibberish.

    You would think hanging out on a Red Sox blog to follow your team instead of posting nonsense here.

    Thats good- Although, I am very worried about surprise GTLUs on Sundays once the summer kicks up. I usually roll out of bed on Sundays and go directly to the beach club without turning my computer on

  27. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 8:28 pm

    “I think it’s safe to say that the game in Baltimore is over. No?”

    Of all the gibberish you post, California, you hit the nail on the head with this one.

    And it’s through no skill of the Red Sox, or Lester either.

    I love your confidence, as a Red Sox fan, because even with a Yankees 5 run lead against Baltimore, I am concerned the entire game.

    Right now, the blog is limited because I have to update my Mac OS. I tried to update iLife (iWeb), but my operating system is outdated. I want some of the new features, so I’ll be doing that within the next 2 weeks, I think.

    Over/Under for a Orioles wins against the Red Sox this year, using last year’s total:

    2

    I’ll take the over, out of optimism, but I would not be surprised to see the under.

  31. whatever April 23rd, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    I’m so glad that other Yankees player and specifically Jeter defended Arod.. i wasn’t sure if Jeter would say anything bc he usually doesn’t..

  32. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 8:32 pm

    Woohoo!

    The Red Sox get their 2nd caught stealing of the year, on a pickoff throw to first base.

    LOL The Orioles cant even execute what every other team has been able to do this year, run wild on the Sox.

  41. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    Is this some kind of nightmare??????????

    This Orioles team doesnt even care!!

    They got a hard hit ball to 1st base, stepped on the bag, and instead of getting the out at home, they got the run down with the guy going to 2nd for the 2nd out.

    OMG! Frustrating to watch a team that cant execute the simplest plays. I hope they carry this lack of execution to their multiple series against us.

    You missed a great block of the plate by Montero, SJ. It was a thing of beauty. Has the plate blocked and waiting for the ball. Hoover was the runner and a veteran catcher knocked Motero over. Hoover got up rather slowly.

    So, I’m sitting outside at the hotel bar, a beautiful Calif evening, sipping some good Cal Cabernet, when I decide to check the blog. And I read Jeter’s comment about bringing his own mound from home.

    I laughed so hard the wine came sputtering back.

  46. Tarheelyank April 23rd, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    Very funny Joe!!

    I believe Brownies are easier to screw up. But when they are done right– It’s heaven. If you are good at baking, go for the Brownies. Kind of a high risk-high reward kind of thang.

    Cookies are always great, I will devour bad cookies and think they are the greatest thing ever.

    Brownies and cookies is showing off, in the bestest, miss piggiest, way possible. :D

    I really shouldnt question something that actually works out the way I’d like it to, but how did we Yankees fans get so lucky to get Chad and Sam, 2 professionals that surprisingly dont look to or thrive off of creating controversy with the Yankees?

    And only a few weeks after Abey leaves, we win a World Series! Huh, how life works out sometimes.

    Nova out after 6.1 innings, 3 hits, 1 run, 5 walks, 7 strikeouts

    Leaves with bases loaded, Melancon pitching. Melancon strikes out both hitter, but, had full counts on both.

    Montero is having a really good night behind the plate. 3 blocked 3rd strikes in the dirt, saved a bases loaded wild pitch and the block at the plate to get the runner.

    Haha its a no win situation for Jete I guess. If he doesnt say anything, hes not sticking up for Alex. If he says something, he reverts to Alex’s level. In summary, this whole ordeal is ridiculous :)

    ————

    I’m not sure about that. I’m thinking it kind of puts the issue to rest (well, until these teams meet again, that is).

    The face of baseball sided with A-Rod and called out Braden for acting like a fool.

    That’s the way I interpret it, anyways. Jeter has more clout than anyone regarding class and sportsmanship in the eyes of MLB.

    Betsy

    I hate to disagree with you, and I dont know why a former Yankee Wells is opening his trap about his former team….

    but Wells knows many people within baseball. Im sure he knows that Alex is disliked. To be honest, if I was a player on an opposing team, or a fan of an opposing team, I would dislike Alex too.

    Why? Because he makes 30 million dollars a year, one of the greatest athletes to ever live….HERE COMES MY FAVORITE….He was outed as a steroid user last year,……wait for it……. and rather than being punished via bad karma and not winning a world series, HE WINS anyway!!! And mainly due to him too!!!

    Can you imagine the jealousy of Alex around other clubhouses before he got the ring he was entitled to, the jokes about his 30 million salary. Im so glad Alex has embraced himself finally, and understands that he doesnt need scummy people to like him. It’s just fine as long as he is comfortable with himself!!!

    The WS rings are gonna start piling up for Alex!!!!

    What did Jeter say?

    I’ll admit I’ve just ignored this. I turned over a Daily News today on a rack in a Deli in Metuchen and turned it face down again when I read the headline “Alex the Grate.”

    But I am curious: what’d Jeter say?

  81. Fran (the original) and OPPC member April 23rd, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    YES will be airing postgame shows after Fox and ESPN games. It is called Yankees Extra Innings. Tomorrow is the first one. Just saw it on the YES website.

    Sorry, CR – Wells has no clue what’s going on inside that clubhouse nor do I need to hear from him.

    Erin, I never, ever saw anything appealing about Wells.

  89. XLJ April 23rd, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    From Feinsand blog. Teixeira is putting Braden in his place.

    “It’s great,” Mark Teixeira said. “If this is the biggest thing we have to worry about and deal with all year, we’re sitting pretty.”

    To my surprise, Teixeira said A-Rod “handled it with perfect class,” despite his crack about Braden being a guy with “a handful of wins,” referring back to some advice he remembered getting from Rusty Greer during his rookie year in Texas: “Don’t speak unless spoken to.” Braden isn’t a rookie – he’s in his fourth year with the A’s – but Teixeira said the theory remains the same.

    “The first couple years in the league, I pretty much lived by that,” Teixeira said. “Still to this day, I don’t really make a public stink about much. It’s probably more funny coming from a guy that has only been around for a handful games.”

    So glad that worked!

    Sounds like Nova was “wildly affective” as the cliche goes.

    BTW, thanks GB for all the updates. You often save me time from going to RAB every night to check out the minor league stats.

    Plus, you offer more detail as well.

    bod, here’s his quote on Braden being protective of the mound: “It ain’t like he brought it from home”

  93. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    Fran, thanks!

    Wait, so the Yankees are on Fox tomorrow and on ESPN Sunday night baseball when they have to fly cross country to play the O’s on Monday?

  94. pat April 23rd, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    bodh

    Jeter’s line of the day concerning trespassing on Dallas Braden’s mound: “It isn’t like he brought it from home, you know what I mean?”

  95. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    I loved your post earlier about AROD!!

    Did you hear the sad story of the Pens fan that killed his wife after the Pens loss last night, mainly because they had been arguing about the length of the game…..Sad :(

  100. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    trenton leads after 7 innings, 6-1

    Tampa Yanks lead 11-3 in bottom of the 7th inning

    top of the 9th inning, Charleston leads Hickory 6-3. Grote and Murton with home runs

  101. SJ44 April 23rd, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    I wonder what the Anti-Arod contingent of the beat writers, led by Feinsand, will have to say about Jeter’s and Tex’s comments.

    Two guys known to be “vanilla” in their comments, clearly in Arod’s corner and having his back.

    Perhaps we can now stop the idiocy of this and get back to baseball.

    Braeden is a punk who shot off his mouth about nothing.

    He’s more laughingstock than “protector of the mound”.

  102. bodhisattva - Destiny Wears Pinstripes April 23rd, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    That’s the dry Jeterian wit at work. Thanks, Erin, Pat.

    How’s Mitchell doing tonight, opposite the immortal Casey Kelly?

    ———————————————————————————————————————-

    Bodh, Mitchell was a little wild but didn’t give up the gits. Kelly lasted 3.1 innings, 4 hits, 1 run, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts. Not sure if he was on a pitch count or not.

  108. bodhisattva - Destiny Wears Pinstripes April 23rd, 2010 at 9:38 pm

    CR9,

    I did not hear about it, but I was ready to kill Jay McKee.

    Seriously, don’t tell me the story. I don’t need to know :D .

    Wells won some seriously important games for us. He may not be your favorite player, but we have very short memories

  111. Fran (the original) and OPPC member April 23rd, 2010 at 9:39 pm

    Betsy,

    After any game that the Yanks are on FOX or ESPN, YES will now do a post game. Since the Yanks are on FOX tomorrow, it will be the first time YES will do a post game.

  112. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 9:39 pm

    didn’t give up the ***hits***

  114. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    I still don’t like him and I never did, no matter how many games he won for us.

  115. bodhisattva - Destiny Wears Pinstripes April 23rd, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    Thanks, GB7. Kelly was intended to go 3 to 4. I thought about going, because I was a stone’s throw away down in Metuchen on business, but decided against it.
