Game on

Posted by: Brian Heyman - Posted in Misc on Apr 30, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Kind of an unlucky start for Andy Pettitte. Bloop single, bloop single, pop fly homer to right for Paul Konerko. That, by the way, was No. 11 for Konerko. That leads the majors and it set a White Sox franchise record for April.

Update, 8:12: It looked like the word “unlucky” could replaced with the words “not sharp” through Pettitte’s first two innings, after allowing four runs and six hits. Maybe he was due for a shaky start. But he has settled down nicely to retire seven straight and is trailing 4-2 after 3 1/2 innings.

Update, 8:20: It’s strange to see the Yankees being contained by Freddy Garcia, who brought an 0-2 record and a 5.82 ERA to Yankee Stadium. But Garcia has mowed down 10 straight since the Yankees reached him for two runs and three hits in the first.

Update, 8:42: The Captain ties the game. That was a nice shot to the left-field seats. Garcia hung a curve. That’s Jeter’s fourth homer. And now it’s 4-4 in the fifth.

Update, 9:02: That’s it for Pettitte, six innings, four runs, seven hits. Overall, a decent job, especially considering how it started. Now it’s Alfredo Aceves’ turn at 4-4.

Update, 9:27: Jeter is finishing off a nice first month for himself, now with a two-run triple off Matt Thornton for the lead. Jeter has four homers and 18 RBI.

Update, 9:31: A Jorge Posada sighting. He just fanned as a pinch hitter for DH Nick Johnson, who had yet another quiet night at 0 for 2 with a walk.

Update, 10:06: Yankees win 6-4. Mariano Rivera finishes it off.

    “Its early, but I think I am going to shower now”

    Thank you for taking your responsibilities seriously tonight
    *******************

    It was a combination of wanting to stop the damage and being stinky from the gym.

    But it worked!!!!

    Erica, I have to keep lobbing these to you because you are the only one (I think) here in our league and so understand.

    I had Paul Konkero and dropped him.

    See what I mean?
    ************

    I understand.. That has to hurt!

  4. Michelle April 30th, 2010 at 7:27 pm

    Hopefully facing Garcia helps Tex and Arod to wake up. His stuff is soo poor.

  5. Wheels on Meals April 30th, 2010 at 7:27 pm

    Should always walk guys like Kurt Suzuki, Kendry Morales, and Paul Konerko.

    That’s 4 losses right there which could have been avoided.

  6. Doreen - GTLU Standings, Updates, Calendar & Rules April 30th, 2010 at 7:27 pm

    Erica -

    I didn’t call you unique. I said there were 5 unique lineups contributed tonight. :)

  7. Michelle April 30th, 2010 at 7:28 pm

    Let’s see how many pitches Johnson takes before he actually swings the bat.

  8. RS April 30th, 2010 at 7:28 pm

    Pettitte didn’t even pitch badly in that inning. Quentin’s double was the only hard hit ball. It wasn’t like he got behind on hitters and had to throw cookies down the middle of the plate. He got to strike 2 and the hitters just fought off good pitches. Konerko’s HR is an out in any other ballpark.

    Let’s see if the offense can get back a run or two.

  9. CB April 30th, 2010 at 7:28 pm

    Andy didn’t really make a bad pitch on that home run. He missed his spot a little but he went with a pitch on the outside off the plate to probably set up the cutter inside to try to strike out konerko with a man on third.

    He missed his spot but really not by that much. That short porch just isn’t forgiving.

    Andy was trying to set up the strike out to prevent the run from scoring. Konerko poked one out. It happens.

    Overall Andy’s stuff looked good.

    The yanks should pound Garcia.

  10. Erica - always OPPC - Sesame Street Mafia and GTLU supporter April 30th, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    CR9 April 30th, 2010 at 7:21 pm
    This is Michael Kay’s fault again. He was talking about the White Sox RISP hitting being poor.
    ***************

    There is a scientific term for that. Its called “The Broadcaster Kiss of Death”

    Another great example of the Broadcaster Kiss of Death is when someone says something like “This relief pitcher hasn’t given up a homerun to a lefty all season”. And then its a homerun to a lefty!

  11. Wheels on Meals April 30th, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    Nick Baldy is so useless.

  12. Doreen - GTLU Standings, Updates, Calendar & Rules April 30th, 2010 at 7:30 pm

    Well, at Least NJ swung, right? :lol:

    Haha- I wasn’t upset.

    Trust me, I have been called far, far, far worse

  14. Laura - My Pretend Boyfriend plays for BAL April 30th, 2010 at 7:30 pm

    I would complain about Nick Johnson, but I know that everyone is tired of it so I will just remain silent.

  15. Wheels on Meals April 30th, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    And just like that, the Jays’ lead has already been cut in half.

  16. Laura - Nick Johnson sucks! April 30th, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    Doesn’t it look like Garcia is aiming the ball?

  17. Doreen - GTLU Standings, Updates, Calendar & Rules April 30th, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    Erica -

    I didn’t think you would be, but I just wanted to set the record straight. :)

  18. Michelle April 30th, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    Girardi has to move Johnson down in the lineup. He is absolutely pathetic. Especially since Tex isn’t hitting yet you can’t have those 2 back to back.

  19. Erica - always OPPC - Sesame Street Mafia and GTLU supporter April 30th, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    Dearest Mark Teixeira-

    Lets pretend its May now. Please start hitting more. The Yankees (and Erica’s Avengers need you!!). Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    Sincerely Yours,
    Erica

  20. SJ44 April 30th, 2010 at 7:32 pm

    That’s right, an intentional walk to a guy to load the bases. What brilliant strategy.

    Thank God you aren’t employed in a job that would require brainpower. That would be criminal.

  21. igotid88 April 30th, 2010 at 7:32 pm

  24. Erica - always OPPC - Sesame Street Mafia and GTLU supporter April 30th, 2010 at 7:33 pm

    Got a feeling A-Rod ties it here

    Lets see if I am right!

  25. Michelle April 30th, 2010 at 7:33 pm

    Let’s go Arod!!

  30. Laura - Nick Johnson sucks! April 30th, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    Alex breaks out of his slump.

  31. Trevor April 30th, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    Alex with new kicks.

  32. pat April 30th, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    Alex’s leg kick is realllllly big again.

  33. Carl April 30th, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    Lets go Yankees!!!

  34. RS April 30th, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    I agree with Girardi. Arod has been swinging the bat a lot better than his 0-19 suggested.

  35. THE TRUTH April 30th, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    As hot as Cano is, you wouldn’t walk him with a base open and to set up the double play?

  36. CB April 30th, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    “Doesn’t it look like Garcia is aiming the ball?”

    It’s much worse than that. Garcia is “pushing” the ball to the plate. He is throwing the ball horribly.

    First I’ve seen him this year – he looks awful – just his throwing mechanics.

    They should destroy him.

  37. Erica - always OPPC - Sesame Street Mafia and GTLU supporter April 30th, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    Can-do!!!
    Can-do!!!

  38. Benny Blanco April 30th, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    There you go alex..

    If cano hits a homerun right now, I will run to YS from my house.

  39. Michelle April 30th, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    Come on Cano don’t chase that crap

  40. RS April 30th, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    Garcia refuses to throw Cano a fastball

  41. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    I missed the beginning and now I’m glad I did, lol. Andy’s due for one of those starts. I don’t necessarily think being home will cure what ails this team offensively, but I hope it will.

  42. Carl April 30th, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    Cano!!!

  43. RS April 30th, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    Robbie!!

  44. igotid88 April 30th, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    Whooo Cano

  45. RalphieD (OPPC) April 30th, 2010 at 7:36 pm

    cano is not human lol!

  46. Benny Blanco April 30th, 2010 at 7:36 pm

    Cano is not in his body!

  47. Michelle April 30th, 2010 at 7:36 pm

    Nice…Keep it going boys…

  48. igotid88 April 30th, 2010 at 7:36 pm

    I think he’s guaranteed to hit .400 for the month now with that hit.

  49. tampayank April 30th, 2010 at 7:36 pm

    clutch

  50. RL15 April 30th, 2010 at 7:36 pm

    Robbie Cano-MVP!!!!!

  51. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    That’s not a good thing that Alex is going to back to his “kick”. Why would he mess with success? Just because he’s off to a slow start?

  52. CB April 30th, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    Baseball is a game where if you fail 7 times out of 10 you are a star.

    But just watching the way Garcia is throwing the ball and his awful arm action and men on base – there was no way Cano wasn’t going to get a hit there.

    The chances of him not getting a hit were probaly closer to 3 out of 10 rather than 7 out of 10.

  53. Laura - Nick Johnson sucks! April 30th, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    Robbie is a shoo in for Player of the Month.

  54. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    Way to go, Nick

  55. PL April 30th, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    Epic Fail

  56. Laura - Nick Johnson sucks! April 30th, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    Well, at least we got 2 of them back. Andy will settle down and we’ll be right back at it.

  57. RalphieD (OPPC) April 30th, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    wow…that ball cannot be better thrown than that…an inch more to the rf side and yanks are tieing the game

  58. CR9 April 30th, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    Why didnt Cano get caught in a rundown to allow the run to score??

  59. CB April 30th, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    The Yanks had Garcia on the ropes there. Hopefully they can get it started up again next inning.

    He looked very bad out there on the mound. His stuff was awful.

  60. Jon April 30th, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    We lead the league in GIDPs, I assume.

  61. RS April 30th, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    That was a bit of bad luck. But I like our bats against Garcia better than the White Sox bats against Pettitte. Getting 2 runs in the first inning was a good job.

  62. Benny Blanco April 30th, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    I have a feeling cano might go yard tonight!

  63. Carl April 30th, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    Gotta love the Mets smacking down the Phils. I know its early, but I hate the Phils. Horrible fan base.

  64. Michelle April 30th, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    If the Yankees were playing this game on the road Swisher would of got a hit right there. For whatever reason he stinks at home.

  65. Benny Blanco April 30th, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    Mets beating Philly 3-0

  66. Matt April 30th, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    If Cano just stopped between the bases there the run would have scored and the game would have been tied. Has to be more aware of the situation there.

  67. trisha - OPPC member who sees, hears, and knows all. 28 is on its way!!!!! April 30th, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    I am in the process of working my superstition mojo. Guaranteed to work.

    :)

    Anyone who wants to join Fran and me in eating authentic Puerto Rican food tomorrow in an effort to help Javy get it going, feel free. You don’t have to announce, just do it. (Oh yeah, you have to buy your own.)

  68. Doreen - GTLU Standings, Updates, Calendar & Rules April 30th, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    They got 2 back. Great. :)

  69. Erica - always OPPC - Sesame Street Mafia and GTLU supporter April 30th, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    Taking a dinner break-

    Be back soon!

  70. tampayank April 30th, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    Carl I hate both teams so that’s a tough one

  71. Erin April 30th, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    I’m already sick of Hawk. Stupid blackouts. :(

  72. SJ44 April 30th, 2010 at 7:41 pm

    You assume wrong. They don’t lead the league in GIDP’s.

  73. Michelle April 30th, 2010 at 7:41 pm

    Hopefully Andy can hold them down. That was a terrible curveball right over the plate to the #9 batter.

  74. Laura - Nick Johnson sucks! April 30th, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    The Chicago broadcast is like torture.

  75. Laura - Nick Johnson sucks! April 30th, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    I feel like I’m being waterboarded.

  76. Gary April 30th, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    Johnson is just horrible, sit the guy down.

  77. CB April 30th, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    There was probably no way for Cano to know whether or not the first baseman tagged the bag. The play was behind him – not in front of him.

    If you can’t see the ball then you can’t know if the 1b was trying to start a double play by throwing the ball to SS for the force or for the tag.

    That’s not a straight forward play to be “aware” of given that it’s behind him. To view the ball he’d almost have to stop and turn around.

  78. CR9 April 30th, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    Of course, the White Sox decided to try something new against us. Per the usual. Using Ramirez in the leadoff.

  79. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2010 at 7:43 pm

    Lucy In The Sky With A Double

  80. Matt April 30th, 2010 at 7:44 pm

    Are you serious? The guy squared to bunt on 2-0 and 3-1, and you STILL wouldn’t go after him. Wow. Just throw it down the middle and let him bunt into an out.

  81. JZ April 30th, 2010 at 7:44 pm

    looks like both starting pitchers are competing who is worse tonight.

  82. tampayank April 30th, 2010 at 7:44 pm

    ‘he gone’

  83. CR9 April 30th, 2010 at 7:44 pm

    He ran out of the baseline!!!!!!!!!!!

  84. CR9 April 30th, 2010 at 7:45 pm

    I DONT UNDERSTAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  85. Michelle April 30th, 2010 at 7:45 pm

    He was out of the baseline. Not even close.

  86. SJ44 April 30th, 2010 at 7:45 pm

    Way out of the baseline. Blown call.

  87. Carl April 30th, 2010 at 7:45 pm

    should be 3 outs. what a joke.

  88. CR9 April 30th, 2010 at 7:45 pm

    Theres not even an argument or discussion from the umpires.

  89. Matt April 30th, 2010 at 7:45 pm

    That is not even close to being in the baseline. Unbelievable how terrible these umpires are, and guess what, it just COST US A RUN.

    What a freaking shock that an umpire has once again changed the outcome of an inning.

  90. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    It wasn’t bad luck; Swisher had a bad at bat…

  91. JZ April 30th, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    LOL, f??king ump hit a home run.

  92. SJ44 April 30th, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    Blown call cost them at least one run so far.

  93. CR9 April 30th, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    The 3rd base umpire didnt even consider calling that out of the baseline….and why would he?

    It’s not his responsibility to get calls right.

    Damn Swish couldnt get a run home again.

  94. Michelle April 30th, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    Of course they get an easy run, when the guy on 3rd should of been called out. I am surprised Girardi didn’t come out to say anything.

  95. chris K. April 30th, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    Now the scary part:

    imagine what this red hot white sox offense will do to Vazquez.

  96. JZ April 30th, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    come on, andy!

  97. CR9 April 30th, 2010 at 7:48 pm

    Oh well, what do you expect. To get calls right?

    I can guarantee, though, if Donny Lucy was out of the baseline against the Sox in the same situation, it’s getting CALLED CORRECTLY. Just like the slap play by Arod on Brandon Arroyo.

  98. Matt April 30th, 2010 at 7:48 pm

    That was NOT EVEN CLOSE. NOT EVEN CLOSE.

    It has changed the entire complexion of the inning, and directly cost the Yankees at least one run thus far.

    Saying that Pettitte could have still gotten out of the inning is a weak excuse. Escaping 1st and 3rd with 1 out is not something you can reasonably expect a pitcher to do most of the time, especially with the top of the order coming up.

  99. GrouchoNYY April 30th, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    Arod drives in Jeter
    Cano drives in Teixeira.
    Swish hits into a noncontinuous dp (3-3-6)
    If Arod, on third runs hard and touches home beore Cano is tagged at 2B, a run would have scored. No mention was made of that fact. Did ARod stay at third on the play? If so, why? Kay didn’t say anything. Any ideas?

  100. Michelle April 30th, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    It seems like the Yankees are going to be in the bullpen early tonight.

  101. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    Joe didn’t even argue that? Weak.

  102. JZ April 30th, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    I am pretty sure Baseball tonight on ESPN would say that’s not out of baseline.

  103. CR9 April 30th, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    Matt

    People make excuses for umpires, because they think that umpires are worthy of respect.

    The only respect that an umpire deserves is a broken body part!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  104. THE TRUTH April 30th, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    That call was nonsense, but I am not even sweating that one run. Yankees are going to smash Garcia

  105. Erin April 30th, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    Laura – Nick Johnson sucks! April 30th, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    It certainly is. It’s awful.

  106. RalphieD (OPPC) April 30th, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    andy has given up 4 runs..no doubt about that but under different circumstances, this could be a much different score…i wouldnt bury andy yet

  107. Matt April 30th, 2010 at 7:51 pm

    I don’t know how in the world he could have missed that. He was standing almost directly in line with the play, and had a perfect angle on the move. There is no reasonable excuse for missing that play, he simply did not do his job.

    Such a terrible call can change an entire inning, and it definitely did there. I understand if he misses a bang-bang play, but that was not even debatable.

  108. RS April 30th, 2010 at 7:51 pm

    So this is how this game is going to go?

  109. Doreen - GTLU Standings, Updates, Calendar & Rules April 30th, 2010 at 7:51 pm

    Darn!

  110. trisha - OPPC member who sees, hears, and knows all. 28 is on its way!!!!! April 30th, 2010 at 7:51 pm

    “Now the scary part:

    imagine what this red hot white sox offense will do to Vazquez.”

    Buy some Puerto Rican food for tomorrow’s game. (Can’t hurt!)

    ;)

  111. Michelle April 30th, 2010 at 7:51 pm

    Imagine if that was Arod that ran out of the baseline. He would of been called out right away. No question.

  112. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 7:52 pm

    The Yankees offense is going to have to pick up Andy tonight; he’s done it for them often enough. I would love it if he could give us 5, but that was disappointing giving up a run after we had cut the lead. He doesn’t appear to have much, but then Andy has made a career of getting around when he doesn’t have anything.

  113. Waz April 30th, 2010 at 7:52 pm

    Another reason for robot umpires.

    And these are the best in-game updates ever!!!

  114. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 7:53 pm

    Bad calls happen in favor of the Yankees too, like the Matsui call at home on April 15th.

  115. trisha - OPPC member who sees, hears, and knows all. 28 is on its way!!!!! April 30th, 2010 at 7:53 pm

    This is the game I wish Jorge was catching, only because he and Andy are such a team that I think he would know how to pull Andy back in.

  116. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2010 at 7:53 pm

    Montero is 0-1 tonight, but has thrown out 1 runners stealing. He’s getting no help from Mosely, though. Two steals without a throw.

  117. Matt April 30th, 2010 at 7:53 pm

    Wow, really Betsy?

    Pettitte gave up a run on a sacrifice fly, after a runner going from 2nd to 3rd went 5 feet out of the baseline and was called safe. How is that Pettitte’s fault? He did all that he needed to do, and couldn’t catch a break.

    The 3 runs he gave up in the first inning were two of the softest bloop hits to the outfield you will ever see, followed by a ball that cleared the right field fence by 1 row that swisher just missed catching.

    Pettitte hasn’t been lights out tonight, but he has not been particularly bad other than one pitch to Konerko.

    Imagine if that was Arod that ran out of the baseline. He would of been called out right away. No question.
    ———-

    Not only that, but 42 sports analysts and their dogs would proceed to blast Alex for being “bush league.” Not to mention, his single handed destruction of the integrity of the game for doing something so horrible.

  119. CR9 April 30th, 2010 at 7:55 pm

    Matt

    That’s just an umpire doing an umpire’s job. Cheating the big bad Yankees. They dont care to get calls right against us. That’s not in their job description. Cheating us is.

  120. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2010 at 7:55 pm

    Golson with an inside the park homer to right center.

  121. Gary April 30th, 2010 at 7:55 pm

    Hard to be consistent when your number 2 hitter is hitting .139 and your #3 hitter is hitting .140. We had better hope that the other guys don’t cool off.

  122. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    CR, that’s ridiculous; I just gave you one example of where the umps made a bad call in our favor.

  123. tampayank April 30th, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    cmon this world against the Yankees conspiracy is getting out of hand, there have been bad calls across baseball

  125. chris K. April 30th, 2010 at 7:58 pm

    So what do you think? Is the game over? Does our offense have a chance?

  126. CR9 April 30th, 2010 at 7:59 pm

    Nice pitch by Andy. A surprisingly fair call from the HP umpire!

  127. RS April 30th, 2010 at 7:59 pm

    Hopefully Pettitte can go 6 innings with 4 runs allowed.

    Hi Trisha

  133. Michelle April 30th, 2010 at 8:03 pm

    The Yanks have to try not to chase pitches. Garcia is scared to throw the ball over the plate. So that is all he is trying to do. Throw off speed crap in the dirt hoping they will chase.

  134. JZ April 30th, 2010 at 8:03 pm

    Johnson is moving up a pop up this time as opposed to a strikeout. What a loss of production in Damons old spot.

  139. CR9 April 30th, 2010 at 8:05 pm

    This guy had no control in the 1st inning, and now we’re up there swinging at everything. Not valuing ABs.

    I wonder who William Shatner will put in a key position later in the game…

    Matt Albers? (because of his one good performance yesterday)

  167. CR9 April 30th, 2010 at 8:24 pm

    WOOOHOOO!!!

    Garrett Atkins is in….They didnt play him against us!

    They played Rhyne Hughes, who was actually decent.

    Garrrett Atkins had 8 LOB in 3 ABs one game last week versus the Sox. Perfect managing by Shatner. He knew what he was doing.

    Thanks Atkins! For Nothing!

  168. Carl April 30th, 2010 at 8:24 pm

    What a terrible game from our hitters. Rolling over everything. So annoying.

  170. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    For Trenton, The Pope is close to being excommunicated, but a solo homer by Vechianacci and a 2 run homer by Laird has pulled Trenton to within a 5-4 score.

  171. Michelle April 30th, 2010 at 8:27 pm

    I hate when the Yanks play a team that is terrible or has been playing terrible. The Yanks don’t play them as well and the opposing team tries even harder then usual to beat them.

  178. RS April 30th, 2010 at 8:35 pm

    Do the Yankees know that the White Sox have a very good bullpen? They need to start hitting in these middle innings because the Sox closer isn’t some AAA callup.

  179. RalphieD (OPPC) April 30th, 2010 at 8:35 pm

    I just got in too. Surprised that the Yankees haven’t hit Garcia.

  184. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 8:36 pm

    Also, not to lay this all at NJ’s feet, but he was a.270 career hitter coming into this season – that’s ok, not even what I would call good. I liked the signing a lot, but at the time, I didn’t realize his average was so mediocre.

  185. CR9 April 30th, 2010 at 8:37 pm

    This is terrible. A wasted 3-1 count. Swinging at everything from Fruity Garcia!

  186. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    Fran, I’m not. We saw last year that when this team goes into funks, they almost always go at the same time and it lasts for a long time – even against mediocre pitchers. The SP is carrying the team and I wonder how long that can last.

  187. Mark- Can't touch this April 30th, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    Gardner needs to be stealing here, so we can steal ourselves a 2 out run!

  189. MG April 30th, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    Betsy, why does the Yankees offense ‘have to be better than it is’ because it’s a month into the season? It is what it is and the guys who aren’t hitting will start at some point in time-and when they do this team could average 10 runs a game.

  190. Erica - always OPPC - Sesame Street Mafia and GTLU supporter April 30th, 2010 at 8:39 pm

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

    I often wondered if Jeter could have been a 35-40 homer hitter if he changed his approach earlier in his career. He has great power to left center to right center and can hit anybody’s fastball. If they hang a breaking pitch inside, though, he’ll pull anybody. He could hit the homers if he wanted to sacrifice about 30 points and a automatic HOF invitation. I have no complaints, and he’ll still hit 300 homers.

    But I’m willing to think it’s because you just returned.

    Doesn’t the White Sox have the best bullpen in the majors? (That’s what I last heard.)

  239. Erica - always OPPC - Sesame Street Mafia and GTLU supporter April 30th, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    Andy Pettitte has massive guts!!!

  240. Jason22 April 30th, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    great job by andy.

    now lets take the lead…

  241. RS April 30th, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    It’ll be interesting to see if Girardi sends Pettitte back out for the 7th inning. That would fall in line with the way he has managed his rotation lately.

  242. trisha - OPPC member who sees, hears, and knows all. 28 is on its way!!!!! April 30th, 2010 at 8:55 pm

    Ohman out of the inning.

    :)

  243. Jerkface April 30th, 2010 at 8:55 pm

    Also, not to lay this all at NJ’s feet, but he was a.270 career hitter coming into this season – that’s ok, not even what I would call good. I liked the signing a lot, but at the time, I didn’t realize his average was so mediocre.

    He has more seasons hitting over .270 than he does under them.

    .284, .289, .290, .291

    .300 hitters are special, hitting over .275 I consider good.

  244. Jim The VT Yankeefan April 30th, 2010 at 8:55 pm

    Despite all the base runners Andy still has a decent pitch count.

  245. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2010 at 8:55 pm

    That first inning cost Pettitte another beauty of a game. He easily should have had a 3 up 3 down first inning and no worse than a 4-2 lead assumming that Konerko still hits the solo homer in the 2nd inning.

    I said it before – a lot of times Andy doesn’t “have it” or has a tough time and he just finds away to get around it. He’s a pretty remarkable pitcher.Our SP have shown major guts recently….

  256. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2010 at 8:59 pm

    Trenton has taken a 7-5 lead in the 7th inning on Romine’s RBI double. He’s 2-4. David Adams is 2-4 with a double and 2 RBI.

  257. RS April 30th, 2010 at 9:00 pm

    “He easily should have had a 3 up 3 down first inning and no worse than a 4-2 lead assumming that Konerko still hits the solo homer in the 2nd inning.”

    And that Konerko HR is an easy flyout in most ballparks.

  258. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 9:00 pm

    Alright Romine – boy that kid is hot.

  259. Rob B (Never a Gardner doubter) April 30th, 2010 at 9:01 pm

    Did the removal of the old Stadium have a big effect? Seems like a lot of well hit balls dieing in the outfield tonight.

  260. How Low Can You Go April 30th, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    Tex .136

    Congratulations Tex!

  261. Yankee Trader April 30th, 2010 at 9:03 pm

    If they bring out Garcia next inning have a good feeling he’ll give up some runs.

  262. SJ44 April 30th, 2010 at 9:04 pm

    This is the right move. Andy had to grind tonight coming off 114 pitch outing in his last start.

    No sense pushing it this early in the season.

  263. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 9:04 pm

    Wow, Tex is batting .136? That’s hard to believe.

    Don’t think the 17 year old skinny kid from MI ever thought of himself that way so 40 HRs from Jeter might be pushing it.

    It would have been interesting to see if Jeter’s approach would have been changed in a differently configured home stadium though.

  283. CB April 30th, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    “so is the yankee infield the best ever offensively and defensively with all these guys still in their primes ?”

    randy-

    If Cano does have a break out year for the entire season and the other perform to expectations, I think there is a legitimate argument for this being the greatest infield assembled.

    It will certainly be in the conversation.

    I never saw them play, but to me, it’s a better infield than the big read machine and that’s generally considered one of the greats.

    Oh, I agree that the skinny kid has never had that approach. was just thinking out loud, mostly. I believe that Jeter is as strong as what DiMaggio was and had the same quick bat. That are simarly built. tall, lean, with strong hands and wrists.

  294. CB April 30th, 2010 at 9:17 pm

    Tonight is the kind of game where you really see how much the team misses Posada’s bat behind the plate.

    The line up has a different dynamic with a catcher that can hit for power. It creates a different dynamic for the pitcher to face.

    Cano and Posada have been carrying this team. Without posada not a lot of guys in this line up have been hitting consistently and it can’t be up to Cano to carry the load every night.

    Jeter stepped up but they really need the 2-4 hitters to start hitting.

    Garcia was not good today. They should have crushed him early and gotten him out of the game. But after Cano’s RBI the double play bailed Garcia out.

    Nothing better than judging a player when he’s slumping; where were you when he was hot as a pistol and looked absolutely fantastic? Let’s put AJax ini the HOF right now….

    If the rest of the team were hitting, we could afford to have Jorge out of the lineup, but it’s not; when they go into a funk, they go all together and they go for quite a while. We just have to look to last year as evidence of same. I’m really most surprised at Alex.

    The fact that Girardi didn’t pinch hit Thames for Gardner means that Thames will start to spell Granderson against lefties.

    Granderson can’t hit lefties, doesn’t hit for average, strikes out a million times.

    He doesn’t even steal a lot of bases. Has he ever stolen more than 20? Jayson Werth stole as many bases as Granderson.

    I don’t know why they would give up their best OF prospect, a very good lefty reliever, and a decent pitching prospect for such a flawed player.

    Tigers fans said he was a frustrating, streaky player and boy were they right. After the Boston series, he is hitting like Tex is.

  367. Jon April 30th, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    Everyone out of the White sox bullpen is hitting at least 96, 97. Do we have even one guy who can even hit 94 ?

    “I never saw them play, but to me, it’s a better infield than the big red machine and that’s generally considered one of the greats.

    cb-

    i did a quick look and in 1975 and 1976 which was the peak big red years and conception averaged a .700 ops for the two years so i think with the arrival of cano ( and it looks like this is for real) the yankees will be better offensively than the reds of those years. they have to stay healthy of course.

    it’s conceivable that all four yankee infielders could make the hall of fame. teixeira and cano could do it. and in the short run even if they don’t make it, you have to wonder if they don’t have a chance to put up the best single year ever for an infield.

    and the defense is really good too. just an interesting thing to think about.
    i’ve watched the the yankees for a really long time that this is a special group in the infield. it will be a long time before there is a yankee one better.

  384. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    Top of the 9th inning in scranton with a 5-3 lead. Montero saved a huge inning with a great diving catch on a foul pop-up. They have followed that with 2 singles.

    The Orioles did what they do best again! Blew a chance to create separation with bases loaded nobody out, then blew the lead.

    Sox lead 4-3.

    For a team as “bad” as the Sox, it sure does help to beat up on the pond scum of the MLB like the Os.

    Palmer first said the Orioles could have taken 2 of 3 from the Yankees.

    He then goes on to complain about the payroll and how the Orioles wont have much of a chance in the division for a long time. That the Orioles have to play perfect games to win, which they have done 4 times this season.

    Finally, here’s the kicker, he said that if the Orioles beat the Sox at all this weekend, it wont be because the Orioles earned it or are better, it will be because the “Sox lost it.”

    That a few minutes after saying the Orioles could have taken 2 of 3 from us.

    randy-

    The big red machine teams are frequently held up as the gold standard for infields. Rose and 3 hall of famers is not too shabby.

    That said I’ve looked at the production of the big red machine and there’s some holes there. Conception really couldn’t hit real well. Great glove but he really is no comparison to Jeter. That’s a huge edge. I also think Tex is a better 1b than Perez. Finally, Alex is a better baseball player than Rose and that also isn’t too close given Alex’s capacity to hit for power.

    The yanks really do have 5 players where it wouldn’t be a shock to see all 5 in the hall.

    We’re not going to see this again real soon.

  466. RS April 30th, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    Cano doesn’t turn 28 until October. And it’s easier for second basemen to get into the HOF than most other positions. Chase Utley is considered a strong candidate and he didn’t play a full season in the majors until age 26. Cano is in his age 27 season.

  467. Mike April 30th, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    If you put guys like Tex and Cano in the hall, you will have to let 2000 other ‘very good’ players in.

    HOF is reserved for guys like Jeter, A-Rod, Bonds, Pujols, Clemens, Griffey, Pedro, Maddux, etc.

    If you mention their name, there should be no doubt they belong and they should have had a period of dominance, not just longevity to accumulate records, a la Bagwell……..

  468. THE TRUTH April 30th, 2010 at 9:53 pm

  474. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 9:55 pm

    RS, maybe so, but I don’t think Cano at this point is close to being a HOFer. I realize he’s not close to the end of his career, but I’d be very surprised if he ended up in Cooperstown.

  478. CB April 30th, 2010 at 9:57 pm

    “I don’t see how Cano has a shot;”

    Take a look at how many 2b are in the hall and what they’re average level of production has been.

    Cano has 908 hits over the first 755 games played. This is his age 27 season – he’ll be 27 the entire season too.

    So Cano will have over 1000 hits before he is 28 and will have done so playing an up the middle position.

    It’s by no means a lock by he has a shot.

    “RS, maybe so, but I don’t think Cano at this point is close to being a HOFer. I realize he’s not close to the end of his career, but I’d be very surprised if he ended up in Cooperstown.”

    i dont know betsy, obviously cano has another 12-13 years left in his career (hopefully)..he has had a very good start to his career and his best years are ahead of him….he has special talent for a second basemen….theres not many like cano

  484. randy l. April 30th, 2010 at 9:58 pm

    cb-

    i wasn’t thinking of the catcher as being part of the infield, but of course he is.( i guess like to think of the catcher as an entity all to himself)

    with a .740OPS and .878OPS for johnny bench , posada just might have him offensively and bench was in his prime. just goes to show how extraordinary posada is at his age.

    i’m liking the idea that the 2010 yankee infield is possibly the best all time infield ever assembled .

    that will be kind of fun to run up the flagpole to see what my red sox friends think about it :)

    We all know the Mets can start the season hot. Remember how good they were last year? They even had a great road trip in late May where they swept the Giants and took 2\3 in Fenway

    But we all know how they finish….. let them have their little moment in the sun… it will even out soon.

  492. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2010 at 10:02 pm

    at his age and with the numbers he already has as a 2nd baseman, Cano is around 350 homers, 1300 RBI, 600 doubles and 1300 RBI by age 38. Those are HOF numbers.

  493. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 10:03 pm

    I’m trying to avoid Mets stuff because I truly detest them, but I’m not sure this is a fluke. I don’t think they are as good as the Phillies, but their pitching has been absolutely lights out and Niese and Pelfrey are very good young pitchers. They have offensive talent – not like the Phils, but they don’t need it with that pitching.

  494. Fran (the original) and OPPC member April 30th, 2010 at 10:03 pm

    The White Sox should trade for Edwar Ramirez. They could put him together w/Alexei Ramirez and make a real person.

    “i wasn’t thinking of the catcher as being part of the infield, but of course he is.( i guess like to think of the catcher as an entity all to himself)”

    Catcher has to be included in the infield. When the Daily News did that story about the yankees infield as being one of the greatest of all time I thought it was ridiculous for them to not include Posada.

    One of the real reasons why you can argue that it’s the greatest of all time is because they have a terrific hitting catcher. That’s a real distinguisher.

    Surprised to see Bench’s OPS at only .740 for one of those years. I’d have to guess he was hurt.

    That said in .880 OPS is really, really impressive for a catcher during that era. The mid 70′s weren’t a real high scoring environment for whatever reason.

    But I think this edition of the yanks will have a very good argument… once the calendar turns to may and Tex and Alex wake up!

    cano’s numbers match up pretty well with jeter through age 27.

    less hits , but good in other areas.

    the difference seems like it would be from now on where cano may be a 3, 4, or 5 hitter the majority of the rest of his career . he may be entering some very good home run and rbi years.

    the big question will be how long cano can stay at a high level . with the lightbulb going on, cano may really surprise people with what he does from now on.

  523. CB April 30th, 2010 at 10:09 pm

    “Do you think Cano might be heir apparent to Jeter at SS?”

    No. You don’t move an all star player to a new position especially at the age of 30.

    Outside of everything else you’d be having to do on the job training for the converted “new” SS and integrating a new 2b. Very tough to do, especially for turning double plays.

    They’ll need to find a new SS. That said I don’t know how long Jeter is going to play at SS. I think people are too concerned about replacing Jeter (and the “heir apparent” to Mo).

    Imagine what the numbers would be right now if he had not spent the first month of his rookie season in the minors or missed almost 7 weeks because of a groin pull in the middle of a hot streak in 2006. Not projecting, just saying that that’s whay he’s doing and that’s figuring in his 2 worst seasons muliplied by 3. He has a swing that plays very well for a long time.

    A quick observation about the NL: Yes, the Phillies are absolotely the best team in the league but aside from the Phils and Cards where are they good teams ???. I see a lot of mediocrity up and down the league… Im thinking 87 wins could win a wild card in that league.

    His bat speed is GONE.

  535. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    GB, I would love to see it – this team is an old team and although Robby isn’t a baby anymore, he’s still in his 20′s and really the only youngish player in the lineup (well, Granderson isn’t old).

  536. trisha - OPPC member who sees, hears, and knows all. 28 is on its way!!!!! April 30th, 2010 at 10:12 pm

    CR9 – now if only they can get something done in the bottom of the 9th. The longer those games go, the scarier it gets with their bullpen.

  537. stuckey April 30th, 2010 at 10:12 pm

    “If he ends up with those #s, he could be good to go, but I’m definitely playing a wait and see game with Robby.”

    As you should with any 27 year old. But as far as 27 year old 2nd baseman go, he’s in about as solid position as you can be.

    I haven’t done the math, but I’m pretty certain he’s got better stats that Ryan Sanberg (Hall of Famer) at comparative ages.

  538. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 10:12 pm

    Boy, I’m no fan of the Sox or Ortiz, but that would be sad….business side of sports is “brutal”.

  542. Yankee Trader April 30th, 2010 at 10:13 pm

    The Gardner at bat against, perhaps the toughest lefty reliever in the game in Thornton, probably cements his position as left fielder against lefty starters. The way Johnson is going, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Thames playing against lefties as DH.

    Put it this way: Anyone in the NL that can hover around .500 still has a shot for that Wild Card Spot. I dont see any teams out there that are good enough to run away with the wc spot. Even Washington is above .500 at this point. I see a whole lot of teams that are average and equal to each other. Should make for some good baseball this Summer.

  551. CB April 30th, 2010 at 10:17 pm

    Ortiz only squares pitches up when he happens to get ahead in the count and guesses correctly.

    He can’t hit major league pitching with the bat speed he’s showing now.

    It’s just the continued decaying of the bat speed loss we saw last year.

    Much too much was made of the second half of last year. It was clear that he was at huge risk for completely falling off the cliff this year.

    Mets are not a fluke.

    They have one of the best pitchers in baseball, and a very nice 2-3 in Niese/Pelfrey.

    Maine/Perez are inconsistant but no worse than most NL team’s #4-5

    The Mets have one of the best pens in the league. Their offense is def. top 3 or 4 in the NL.

    They are a very balanced team. Most NL teams are dominant in one area and lacking in another dramatically. Mets probably have the best pen/rotation/offense combo out of all the WC contenders, except maybe Colorado.

  568. Fran (the original) and OPPC member April 30th, 2010 at 10:24 pm

    carew only had about 840 hits through his first 6 years ( through age 26)

    cano has about 870 in his first five years ( through age 26)

    Are you sure? Did the cameras miss a 2-R HR or something

  575. trisha - OPPC member who sees, hears, and knows all. 28 is on its way!!!!! April 30th, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    Albers was pretty dominant. And he went right after McDonald.

  576. John April 30th, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    Markakis, Jeremy Guthrie, Roberts.

    A shame that they can’t pitch though.

    Shawn the league is mediocre.. Its a small ball league, totally different than our league. I predicted the Mets with 75 wins when it started, I have to stick with it. I also had Washington with 67 wins and Atlanta with 85 wins. I dont re-evaluate any team until Memorial Day weekend.

    carew took off from age 27 through 31.

    in those five years he got 1052 hits.

    before that he never had a 200 hit year.

    cano is really going to be interesting to watch age 27 -31.

    when those five years are up. we’ll probably have our answer about cano and the hall of fame.

    he’s showing us stuff that makes us think pf the greats though isn’t he?

  581. 7 UP April 30th, 2010 at 10:30 pm

    Phillies are missing Happ and Blanton – their #3-4 starters. They are also missing their 2 best relievers – Lidge and Romero, and Rollins (who destroys the Mets) is on the DL.

    Mets caught them at the right time. Let’s see how the Mets do against them in July when they are 100% and playing well. Philly has always been a slow starting, 2nd half team, like us.

  594. randy l. April 30th, 2010 at 10:39 pm

    sandberg piled up all those gold gloves.

    it’d be good for cano’s hall of fame chances to get a few of those or more.

    once he breaks through he just may get several.

  595. CB April 30th, 2010 at 10:39 pm

    “cano is really going to be interesting to watch age 27 -31.”

    These next 4-5 years are really going to be critical to Cano as they are for most players.

    I guess the interesting hypothesis with cano is that he will elevate his game to an elite level as he enters his peak age seasons.

    If he does that over time, sky’s the limit.

    We could be seeing it now. He has otherwordly hitting talents.

    I saw Carew play towards the end of his career. Maybe I missed his prime and can’t speak to a true comparison. To me Carew seems like he was a much more consistent hitter but Cano is a more multidimensional hitter and has a better swing because it’s a swing that balances contact and power extremely well.

    The key thing for him from here on out is being selective. He’s got ridiculous plate coverage. He’s got to stop asking himself can I hit this pitch and consistently ask himself should I hit this pitch because he can reach just about any pitch. But for him it’s doing what Alex told him to in the spring – select a pitch you can do damage on.

    If he does that he’s a perennial all star and an elite hitter – not just an elite hitting 2b – but an elite hitter overall.

    The way I see it the Sux still owe Miggy from the time that Oakland got thrown out of the postseason because Miggy was called out at 3rd when he was really safe and had he not been called out Oakland would have won the final game.

    Now would be a good time to collect.

    They are 1-6 against the Yankees and Rays, all at Fenway.

    They are not a good team this year.

    Run prevention!!! LOL

    It is really wonderful to see the Orioles celebrating. Those kids don’t get to do it often enough.

    Francona with his Tony La Russa/Girardi managing again, like evry manager does.

    They are sooo obsessed with matchups. Okijima is a much better pitcher than Delcarmen and is not a LOOGY. Yet because of the hand that he throws with, they assume that a bad righty is better than a good lefty vs. a RH hitter.

    When are managers going to stop watching TLR?

  620. CB April 30th, 2010 at 10:48 pm

    The Red Sox are grossly overplaying their run differential. They have won an inordinate number of 1 run games so far this year.

    Now you coudl say that this is what the run prevention strategy was designed to do. But to date their pitching and defense hasn’t been great.

    Winning one run games isn’t a stable pathway to success over the course of the year.

    And the Sox are playing one of the easier stretches of the season. Lots of home games. Lots of games against the O’s, Jays, KC, etc.

    They are going to need to up the level of their play or make a few trades to be a real threat.

  621. Ken April 30th, 2010 at 10:49 pm

    Let’s enjoy it while we can… Sox and Rays are not going to lose a lot this year. Always nice when they lose on the night we win though,.

    it’s just real nice to be watching a young player like cano come into his own.

    no one knows the future, but i think it’s going to happen for cano.

    and there’s some serious history we’re seeing every night with this infield.

    just a good time to be a yankee fan.

    i’ve bashed cashman more than anyone , but signing teixeira was just huge for the yankees and cementing this infield as an all time great one.

  628. pistol pete April 30th, 2010 at 10:54 pm

    Cano clearly has the talent to be a Hall of Famer but a lot of luck staying healthy and being consistant are required. The entire Yankee infield has a Hall of Fame potential. Jeter and Arod are 1st ballot HOFers, Cano and Tex have the possibilities, and Posada really has a chance. A very good hitting switch hitter with power and excellent obp and ops numbers lifetime coupled with at least 5 rings and he really does have a chance. If he has a few more decent yrs and maybe another ring or two and Posada could get in.

    Folks, you can tell just by Remy’s tone whether the sox are winning or losing. He takes delight in Boston wins and cant stand a loss. On top of that he seems to be anti New York. For folks who get NESN, do you agree with me? This man is class-less asking for a home run on the air? Unreal. Although its Remy. nothing surprises me.

  633. Mike April 30th, 2010 at 10:55 pm

    CR9,

    For some reason we have a neutral broadcast. Boston has announcers asking for HRs int he 9th and White Sox have Hawk Harrelson referring to the team as “we” when he speaks

    Yet we have Kay who tries to go against conventional wisdom and be objective. Hey Mike – you are on a local broadcast! Be a homer like the other 29 broadcasters!

  634. Jerkface April 30th, 2010 at 10:56 pm

    Posada only really needs 1 , maybe 2 more years of high play. I think he is a HOFer right now. On the ‘all time batting’ list for catchers he is surrounded by HOFers

  635. RalphieD (OPPC) April 30th, 2010 at 10:56 pm

    “Cliff Lee vs. a good Texas team so far

  636. Yanks 172 April 30th, 2010 at 10:57 pm

    Notice that Millar joined the MLB Network? On the heels of Gammons going there.

    MLB Network trying to keep up with ESPN by hiring as many ex Red Sox players as possible. And notice they signed Shawn Casey after he played for the Sox and retired?

    I do like they hired Leiter though – he is a Yankees homer on that network and its awesome.

  637. teddy gbu April 30th, 2010 at 10:57 pm

    yea but what do you call him.

    he has 12 wins out of the pen since last season

  638. stuckey April 30th, 2010 at 10:57 pm

    As I’ve said previously, May 13th is a key date for the Sox.

    They’ll hit the road having played 23 home games and just 12 road games, including 6 at home (against 0 on the road) against the Yanks and arguably their easiest stretch of schedule all year.

    Yanks will head home having played 12 at home and 22 on the road and arguably their most difficult stretch of the year.

    If the Sox are behind by then (much less haven’t created a few games cushion for themselves), they’re going to have an uphill climb.

  639. CR9 April 30th, 2010 at 10:58 pm

    I wonder if Jim Palmer thinks that the “Sox gave this game away or lost it” as opposed to the Orioles winning it?

    From an Orioles broadcaster, no less.

  640. ken April 30th, 2010 at 10:58 pm

    Kay claims he is not a Yankees fan but I dont believe him. He says he grew up going to Yankees games but now that he is a broadcaster for them he can just drop his allegiance? I dont buy it. I think he is sensitive about it. He gets annoyed on his radio show when people call him a Yankee fan

  641. CB April 30th, 2010 at 10:59 pm

    randy-

    Cano just has such great hands. Watching him swing the bat isn’t something you forget. It’s just a great, great swing. Just so well balanced, so short and streamlined to the ball. It’s amazing.

    Carew and Boggs always reminded me of each other.

    Cano’s starting to remind me a little of Mattingly in some ways. The great balance. The great plate coverage. The ability to drive the ball while still maintaining a relatively level swing.

    Mattingly wasn’t a guy who fit the mold of drawing a lot of walks. Like Cano he just had such great plate coverage he could make contact with and square up pitches that most other hitters couldn’t hope to touch. That’s partly why he had so many RBI’s. Yes hitting behind Rickey helped – but so did getting all of those hits and extra base hits.

    But Mattingly was always more selective than Cano. He waited for pitches he could drive.

    I hope we’re seeing Cano evolve into the kind of hitter Mattingly was.

  642. ken April 30th, 2010 at 11:00 pm

    Remy has some nerve not crediting the Orioles. Instead he claims the Sox gave the game away. Typical Remy.

  643. trisha - OPPC member who sees, hears, and knows all. 28 is on its way!!!!! April 30th, 2010 at 11:01 pm

    Jim, I always end up adopting teams that are the object of fan derision. I have a big problem with fans summarily dismissing teams and calling them all kinds of negative things without really figuring out what the team is all about. Well the Nats are my pet project this season. :)

    I was a huge supporter of the Rays during their losing years. I watched their games and saw how very good their offense and starting pitching was and also saw that their big downfall was their pen. So it used to drive me nuts to hear baseball fans totally dismiss them by calling them garbage, horrible, calling for the league to retract them. I found it so condescending, arrogant, cruel – and inaccurate. People were judging them by their W-L and apparently nothing mlore because they didn’t have a clue about the different elements of the team.

    Now that the Rays don’t need my support any more I’ve gone on to the Nats.

    :)

    Actually this year’s version has been absolutely amazing thus far. Their closer has the most saves in the majors, and their relief in the form of Tyler Clippard has been tremendous. They get great run support, and their starters have been doing a great job.

    Livan has the second lowest ERA in the majors.

  644. Jon April 30th, 2010 at 11:03 pm

  647. pistol pete April 30th, 2010 at 11:04 pm

    Jerkface Agree with your accessment of Posada, check his numbers vs Gary Carter. Posada’s ba is 16 pts higher, his obp is nearly 50 pts higher, his ops is 90 points higher than Carter. Carter played longer and accumulated more hits, rbi’s, and HR’s but his averages are not close to Jorge’s, plus Jorge has 5 Rings. A few more productive years and he’s in.

    CB, not really much of a comparison between Carew and Cano. Carew was a slash and dash hitter, much like Ichiro Suzuki. He also wasn’t that good of a 2nd baseman…average at best. Cano has a chance to be a Robbie Alomar type 2nd baseman with Carew’s batting skills and Jeff Kent’s power. Sounds confusing, but, he really doesn’t compare in all areas to other 2nd basemen that I’ve seen. He may become a smarter base runner, but, without that explosive first two steps, he’s not going to pile up steals. The thing is, though, is that he isn’t slow.

    jim palmer once thought i was full of it.

    i was catching a lot of older pitchers in the ill fated senior league who would feel great for a few weeks to a month than hit a wall after having a year or two off. i was catching tippy martinez , ross grimsley, and sammy stewart who all pitched with palmer.

    i ran into him while he was kind of buzzed after everyone was leaving a sarasota night club. he was sitting on he edge of a fountain looking like he might fall in. anyway, he was making that comeback with the orioles after being out of baseball for a few years. i told him that he might feel good at the time , but he should go slower than he felt. i had read in the papers he was feeling great and throwing well.

    he was polite and thanked me for the advice, but i could tell when i walked away he probably said something not so nice about my advice.

    a few days later i read of his career ending leg injury that wiped out that comeback.

    so whenever he says something now that i don’t like , i just think who was right back when it mattered :)

  655. How Low Can You Go April 30th, 2010 at 11:11 pm

    NY Times:
    “Among those slumping Yankees are Mark Teixeira, who started the game with a .139 batting average; Nick Johnson, at .143; Alex Rodriguez, at .250, and Curtis Granderson, at .230. All were in the starting lineup. ”

    But according to MLB.com Game Day:
    Tex 0.136
    Nic 0.138
    Grandy 0.221

    What’s causing the discrepancy?

  657. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2010 at 11:13 pm

    randy, other than Mattingly and Winfield, the only other fast starter that I can remember besides those that you named was Bobby Murcer in 1971 and 1972. Hard to believe that in 1961, Maris was hitting .212 and 1 homer in his 1st 16 games and zero homers and a .161 average after 10 games.

  658. Jerkface April 30th, 2010 at 11:13 pm

    That is their current batting average after the game

  659. CB April 30th, 2010 at 11:14 pm

    “not really much of a comparison between Carew and Cano.”

    Oh I agree. It’s just that Carew is always the guy that’s brought up with Cano. They really aren’t particularly similar players. I like your Ichiro/ Carew comparison.

    Robby Alomare was a great second baseman. Probably the best to play the game since Joe Morgan I think. He was a truly dominant defensive player. Unfortunate that his game tailed off so quickly.

    That said, Cano has better hitting tools than Alomar.

    Utley would a natural comparison, but Utley is really a much more patient hitter and more of a power hitter.

    Cano has better contact skills and plate coverage than Utley I think.

    It’s exciting to watch Cano hopefully take his game to that next level.

    Mattingly is the guy Cano is really reminding me of right now up at the plate.

    And as you said, part of why I think I’m thinking that way is because no other 2b is a good fit for cano at the plate.

    jim palmer once thought i was full of it.

    i was catching a lot of older pitchers in the ill fated senior league who would feel great for a few weeks to a month than hit a wall after having a year or two off. i was catching tippy martinez , ross grimsley, and sammy stewart who all pitched with palmer.

    i ran into him while he was kind of buzzed after everyone was leaving a sarasota night club. he was sitting on he edge of a fountain looking like he might fall in. anyway, he was making that comeback with the orioles after being out of baseball for a few years. i told him that he might feel good at the time , but he should go slower than he felt. i had read in the papers he was feeling great and throwing well.

    he was polite and thanked me for the advice, but i could tell when i walked away he probably said something not so nice about my advice.

    a few days later i read of his career ending leg injury that wiped out that comeback.

    so whenever he says something now that i don’t like , i just think who was right back when it mattered

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

    Palmer’s smarter than I ever gave him credit for.

    today is a good day

  663. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2010 at 11:19 pm

    Alomar is the best middle infielder I ever saw at anticipating where a batter would hit a certain pitch.

  664. randy l. April 30th, 2010 at 11:20 pm

    “MLB Network trying to keep up with ESPN by hiring as many ex Red Sox players as possible. And notice they signed Shawn Casey after he played for the Sox and retired?”

    as soon as the red sox release lars anderson after another bad minor league season, espn will probably sign him too :)

    “Can BAL sweep Sux?

    Would that be heaven?

    As of now they are 2-2 in their games with the Sux.

    Life is good indeed.

    From Sweeny…

    YankeesWFAN Ozzie Guillen on Jeter: “He is God. He’s God all the time. It’s fun to watch him play the game. He’s the #1 ambassador in this game.”

    YankeesWFAN Guillen on Jeter continued: “The guy always has good looking women around him too, I mean, God bless him.”

  667. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 11:23 pm

    LOL I hate Guillen, but those are funny…

    Lars Anderson is off to a great start in AA and actually was just promoted to Pawtucket

  668. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2010 at 11:25 pm

    I think that the Carew/Cano comparisons were well meant but, a little unfair. Mainly, I believe it was meant as Cano’s potential for winning multiple batting titles.

  669. m April 30th, 2010 at 11:29 pm

    So Cano finished April hitting .400? Nice.

  670. m April 30th, 2010 at 11:30 pm

    Guess who’s currently second in AVG in the AL?

  671. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2010 at 11:31 pm

    If Lars Anderson is lucky, he may have a career as good as Rico Petrocelli by taking advantage of that close wall. Not sure that he’ll be much different than that. He’s not likely to have a Mo Vaughn type of bat. That’s what they are hoping for.

  672. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2010 at 11:33 pm

    And I know that Anderson’s a left handed bat, but, watch him change his swing after seeing that wall.

  673. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 11:35 pm

    GB, how often have you seen him? I know nothing about him, but he’s obviously having a better year. That’s good for the Sox whether they keep or trade him.

  674. randy l. April 30th, 2010 at 11:35 pm

    “Palmer’s smarter than I ever gave him credit for.”

    gb7-

    ha!!!

    had he listened to me, he would have taken it slow and got his velocity up over a few months, and the he could have made that comeback he wanted to do just to prove he could do it.

    i’ll bet he probably called me some really bad names when he ripped whatever it was in his leg a few days later.

    when i think about it, it was pretty funny me being a lowly bullpen catcher giving unsolicited advice to a hall of fame pitcher . alcohol definitely was a factor :)

  675. Uncle Ellsworth April 30th, 2010 at 11:38 pm

    pieces seem to falling together for Robi from really good to really great. Very exciting. Long said he was like a son today.
    asuming Alex and Tex get going could the AL All Star infield be all Yankees?

  676. Uncle Ellsworth April 30th, 2010 at 11:40 pm

    who m?

  677. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 11:40 pm

    I don’t see how Tex and Alex make the ASG – they have a months’ worth of catching up to do.

  678. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2010 at 11:41 pm

    randy, I remember him going to camp with the White Sox the year after being inducted into the HOF. I thought it was a bad idea then, most;y because of his history of arm injuries. Never thought it would be leg injuries that stopped him. He has always loved himself way too much, but, he was a hell of a pitcher.

    I think that it’s disgusting that you would put a hex on him, though.

  679. m April 30th, 2010 at 11:41 pm

    hint: it’s NOT Granderson. ;)

  680. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 11:41 pm

    I suppose Jeter…

  681. antisocial scrooge April 30th, 2010 at 11:41 pm

    Ajax

  682. Uncle Ellsworth April 30th, 2010 at 11:42 pm

    Was gonna say matsiu or JD but I dont remember seeing them on pregame lists

  683. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2010 at 11:43 pm

    One hot week for Teixeira, Granderson and Rodriguez and they’ll be right where they usually are.

  684. Uncle Ellsworth April 30th, 2010 at 11:43 pm

    no way really? does he have the atbat s to qualify?

  685. m April 30th, 2010 at 11:44 pm

    antisocial scrooge got it. was it the clue?

  686. antisocial scrooge April 30th, 2010 at 11:45 pm

    batting leadoff for the tigers, as a starter, I’d say he does.

  687. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 11:46 pm

    We’ll see, GB. Tex has a long way to go given where is is now. For all of them, particularly Alex and Tex, they can’t make up one month in one week.

  688. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2010 at 11:47 pm

    I’ll wait for Jackson to make a circuit around the league, but, other than the ugly number of strikeouts, he’s doing just fine. Let NY face mainly mediocre pitching staffs and then compare numbers.

  689. antisocial scrooge April 30th, 2010 at 11:47 pm

    sort of :p but after today’s 5-hit game I sort of assumed it was him.

  690. j9h April 30th, 2010 at 11:49 pm

    I think It’s a disgrace when yankee fans stick their hand (or jacket in this case) out and try to catch a ball that a yankee is about to catch. How can thatguy call himself a fan? Robbing Swisher of any chance he had to make that play.

  691. GreenBeret7 April 30th, 2010 at 11:49 pm

    Both are very capable of 5-6 homers and 10-12 RBI in a week and hitting .425-.500

  692. CRAWDADDY (Boycott ESPN-NY) April 30th, 2010 at 11:49 pm

    We’ll see how Jackson does when the pitchers adjust their approach to him.

  693. Uncle Ellsworth April 30th, 2010 at 11:50 pm

    bah humbug,
    I just thought I saw the batting leaders in the pregame and did not notice Ajax.
    good for him.

    Many, many fans vote on name recognition. All-Star game history is littered with guys who got voted in that you’d look at and say “how did THAT guy get in?”

  696. CRAWDADDY (Boycott ESPN-NY) April 30th, 2010 at 11:52 pm

    Let’s not be too concern about Sean Casey being a former Red Sox player on the MLB network. He only played a total of 69 games for them. He’s more of a former Reds player than anything else.

  698. pistol pete April 30th, 2010 at 11:54 pm

    Good for AJax 5 for 5 and at 364, a wake up call for Grandy and it bodes well that the Yanks develop young players either to play or trade. As tough as it is to wonder what he would have done in Ny it’s still a good thing. Damon’s also doing well for Det at 324.

  699. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 11:55 pm

    GGBG, that’s true, but Alex certainly won’ t be one of those and I don’t see Tex. It’s so far away that it’s really not even worth debating; I hope they have the stats to be considered for the team.

  700. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) April 30th, 2010 at 11:56 pm

    I seriously doubt that Granderson cares what AJax is doing………and he doesn’t need any kind of wakeup call.

  702. Uncle Ellsworth April 30th, 2010 at 11:58 pm

    anyone think Grandy might see the 2 spot eventually? or Mr Jeter with GGBG 1st.
    just for conversation

  703. GGBG (50 SB's for me!) April 30th, 2010 at 11:58 pm

    Betsy

    I’m tryin to say that both Alex and Tex have HUGE name recognition. That will get them zillions of votes, even if their stat line says they shouldn’t.

  704. Jerkface May 1st, 2010 at 12:00 am

    A-rod is almost assured to get voted in on name alone. Just like Jeter, who gets a million votes for no reason

  705. GGBG (50 SB's for me!) May 1st, 2010 at 12:00 am

    Uncle E

    I don’t see Jeter moving around – especially going back to the two-hole. He got shifted around to cut down on the his GIDP and it seems to have worked out pretty well. Granderson is an enigma in that his skill set screams “2 hitter” but his streakiness and OBP scream “not a 2 hitter”.

  706. m May 1st, 2010 at 12:00 am

    Okay, here’s another. What slap hitter is tied for 16th in the AL for batting average? :P

  707. GreenBeret7 May 1st, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I think that Gardner gets the #2 spot before Granderson, at least in the forseeable future.

  708. m May 1st, 2010 at 12:02 am

    Uncle,

    I was just thinking about the 2-spot (not that I’m calling for NJ’s head).

    GGBG is too “active”
    Swisher is prone to the “K”
    NJ is passive
    Granderson has lefty issues

    What happens if NJ doesn’t start hitting?

  709. Uncle Ellsworth May 1st, 2010 at 12:02 am

    ooh ooh GGBG?

  710. Uncle Ellsworth May 1st, 2010 at 12:06 am

    yeah I’m not worried at all about it. NJ will come around.

    Longoria can’t be pooh poohed for AS game

  711. GGBG (50 SB's for me!) May 1st, 2010 at 12:06 am

    Getting on base in front of hot hitting Tex, ARod and Cano is the only thing that matters. If NJ’s OBP is in the 400+ range they won’t move him out of the 2 spot even if his BA is .220.

  712. the gay Yankee fan May 1st, 2010 at 12:07 am

    Ideally, Gardner should lead off and Jeter batting behind him.

  713. The Big City of Dreams May 1st, 2010 at 12:10 am

    “Joba starting to look like the Joba of old.”

    weren’t they saying the same thing in fenway a few weeks ago

  714. GGBG (50 SB's for me!) May 1st, 2010 at 12:10 am

    the gay Yankee fan May 1st, 2010 at 12:07 am
    Ideally, Gardner should lead off and Jeter batting behind him

    —————————————————————————

    Jeter didn’t get moved to leadoff because they thought he’d be a super leadoff hitter. He had hit #2 in the order for basically his whole career. He was moved to cut down on his GIDP which were alarmingly high. I don’t see them moving him back to the #2 spot in the order for that reason.

  715. Uncle Ellsworth May 1st, 2010 at 12:15 am

    also for most of the game you could say that Gardner is the lead off hitter in front of Mr. Jeter.

    big game for javy tomorrow hope he shuts up the boo birds

  723. CB May 1st, 2010 at 12:25 am

    The run prevention strategy in Seattle worked to a T tonight as Cliff Lee comes back.

    Lee: 7ip/ 3H/ 0ER/ 0R/0BB/ 8K

    Seattle’s pen continues the strong effort and gives up no runs either.

    So the M’s throw a combined 9 inning shutout.

    And the game is now in the top of the 10th because while Seattle didn’t give up a run they couldn’t score one either.

  724. pistol pete May 1st, 2010 at 12:27 am

    Leave Gardner right where he is, every time you move a guy around it puts pressure on him. Johnson’s got to come around eventually as does Tex but it’s frustrating waiting for it to come. I love Jeter leadoff, cuts down DP’s gets him 20-30 more at bats every year and with Gardner 9th it’s like a double lead off. I also like a leadoff guy with occasional power and Jeter has more than that, leave him right where he is.

  725. m May 1st, 2010 at 12:28 am

    CR9,

    LOL. Now throw your awesome fanatic energy at the Nugs. Send that punk JR Smith home.
