Still waiting for Posada

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Apr 29, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Two hours before game time, there’s still no word on Jorge Posada and his banged up knee. Posada was in the clubhouse briefly, but he walked in and out without really talking.

There were no new lockers in the clubhouse, so I assume the team did not make a call-up to fill the spot. We’re talking to Girardi in a few minutes. Hope to have something then.

    I hate Fullham!

  3. Erin April 29th, 2010 at 5:19 pm

    Hopefully he feels better

    Jesus Montero? (;

    Not sure what to make of that – hopefully he’ll just miss this one game.

    i think after reading that 7 of the last 11 hbps from guthrie have been yankees, that the yankees have to make a statement. AJ is that type of teammate, just please not at someone’s head. we dont need a suspension.

    So Pena’s the 3rd catcher, and AJ’s the 4th?

    Repost for CB:

    CB,

    I totally get what you’re saying.

    And having 3 good to great 1B in a normal market would depress their value somewhat.

    But, you know St. Louis is going to have to give Pujols more than Howard for obvious reasons.

    Fielder’s situation is tougher to get a read on. You don’t know if the Brewers front office is posturing or would they really let Fielder go. With Braun as one of the faces of your franchise, there could be less pressure. Fielder would be overpaid, I think.

    Gonzalez might make a pretty penny if he makes it to FA.

    At any rate, after this winter, I don’t want to see any talk about Tex’s contract. Though I suspect we will.

    Backup? It’s Ramiro Pena for now. Moeller’s at SWB just in case….. Montero isn’t ready.

  10. m April 29th, 2010 at 5:39 pm

    i think the fact that there’s no roster move yet is a good sign.

  11. Erin April 29th, 2010 at 5:39 pm

    Ledger_Yankees Girardi: Posada available in an emergency. Still sore.

    Erin -

    That sounds like pretty good news. Hoping we don’t need him.

    Must-win game tonight…

    They must win because it’s my birthday, and that is what I demand of them.

    I don’t think that the Brewers have a prayer in signing Fielder. He has Boras as his agent. They should just look at trading him this summer. Boras will be looking for 5-8 yrs at 20-25 per year since the Phil’s have extended Howard at 25mil per year.

    Like I said earlier, Jorge is one tough Hombre, and Ice works wonders. :)

    ***********************
    Doreen-I agree. I figured that since there was no roster move it wasn’t too serious.

  17. Psyluk April 29th, 2010 at 5:48 pm

    Knowing Bob Watson, he’ll suspend AJ anyway.

    Markakis is a natural target to get plunked.

  18. MTU (aka GBURL) April 29th, 2010 at 5:48 pm

    Tom-

    If you were turning 28 that would be a good omen.

  19. MTU (aka GBURL) April 29th, 2010 at 5:50 pm

    An eye for an eye, a catcher for a catcher. ;)

  20. m April 29th, 2010 at 5:51 pm

    Phil,

    Then Atanasio’s comments make total sense!

    Erin,

    Thanks for the good news.

  21. Tom B - The Phranchise begins in 2010. April 29th, 2010 at 5:51 pm

    MTU – April 29, 1982. Today I am 28 :)

    Ledger_Yankees “If need be, in a pinch, I can play today.” Posada, through a team spokesman. Posada said there’s no question he has improved.

    Ledger_Yankees Posada has spent most of his time at the park getting treatment.

    Ledger_Yankees When Posada said he could catch/hit in an emeregency, Girardi said the Yankees didn’t have to worry about making a roster move.

  23. CB April 29th, 2010 at 5:52 pm

    Prince Fielder is a difficult player to gauge regarding how hard a team should pursue him. He carries significant risk as he ages. There’s no DH in the NL you can shift him to.

    Things aren’t looking good in Milwaukee. As usual – they have no pitching at all. I think they just moved Suppan out of the rotation because he looked so bad. Dave Bush is awful.

    That’s a lot of resources to try to commit to 1b.

    Ultimately, I only see prince coming back if Anastasio really just kind of panics.

    All that said – Prince is a better player than Howard.

  24. MTU (aka GBURL) April 29th, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    Tom-

    That’s a very good sign.

    And no, I dont have ESP. I might be crazy but that’s all. :)

  25. Erin April 29th, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    Ledger_Yankees Posada is still battling soreness and swelling near his right knee.

    Ledger_Yankees Girardi doesn’t think Guthrie is throwing at guys on purpose, though admitted the high rate of Yanks he’s plunked was “somewhat peculiar.”

  26. Erin April 29th, 2010 at 6:09 pm

    New Post- Pregame notes: Posada available “in a pinch”

  27. champ809 April 29th, 2010 at 6:10 pm

    what guys are missing in the Ryan Howard vs. Every other 1B in the league argument is that since the day Howard debuted in the pros he’s hit more homers and driven in more runs than anybody in baseball regardless of position.

    He’s clearly not the greatest glove and he k’s alot but he’s the undisputed HR/RBI king of the sport and has either won or finished top 5 in the NL MVP every year.

    new post with Posada update
