Feinsand: Gaudin rejoining Yankees

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on May 26, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Good job by our good friend Mark Feinsand who’s reporting that the Yankees have agreed to bring back Chad Gaudin to pitch out of the Yankees bullpen. Gaudin is reportedly already in Minneapolis to be activated before tonight’s game and a half.

Gaudin would give the team an additional long man, and could essentially take the place of Alfredo Aceves who suffered a setback on Tuesday when he once again felt pain in his lower back.

Of course, the Yankees had Gaudin this spring, but he became the odd man out when Sergio Mitre pitched extremely well. He signed with Oakland, was designated for assignment and now he appears to be coming back to where his season started. Last year he went 2-0 with a 3.43 ERA as a late-season addition in New York.

    Good move! I’ve been asking for this for awhile now. Girardi finally listened to me!

  2. Jerkface May 26th, 2010 at 12:37 pm

    Eli (Brooklyn): Are the Yankees looking for a longer-term solution at DH than Juan Miranda, or are they going to rotate the vets through and give too many PA’s to the likes of Ramiro Pena?

    John Perrotto: I’m hearing they will pounce on Paul Konerko if the White Sox decide to start trading off veterans.

  3. Fran (the original) May 26th, 2010 at 12:39 pm

    Good move by Cashman. Now they have another long man out of the bullpen plus Gaudin pitched well here.

  4. CR9 May 26th, 2010 at 12:40 pm

    stop smoking

    You would not post the crap here that I do? The “crap” like trying to gain recognition for a noble blog such as Pets Lohud and trying to find a splendid kitty a new home!!

    Next time you feel the need to attack other posters, though, why dont you just attack me, and not innocent others like Betsy and Erica!!

    :)

    ___

    The 12:32 post on the prior thread was not me, but I’ll agree and also encourage Erica to look at the kitty when she gets home!!

    fyi, i dont call pets “it.” They are either a he or she!

  5. Jerkface May 26th, 2010 at 12:41 pm

    I’m so curious to see where this new imposteration goes.

  6. m May 26th, 2010 at 12:41 pm

    Good morning!

    Bad news for the people who wanted more base stealing.

    Fortune cookie I just opened said, “You must learn to hit before you can run.” :(

    CR9-

    When you fight with other people, can you please leave my name out of it? If I want to defend myself, I will jump in. With this imposter lunacy on the board, I am trying to keep myself out of trouble as much as possible and do not appreciate you dragging me into it

  8. CR9 May 26th, 2010 at 12:42 pm

    JM

    Im sorry to hear about the loss of your kitty. :( If you dont mind, how old and what are your other 2 kitties like?

  9. joelh May 26th, 2010 at 12:42 pm

    Chad Gaudin???

    Him of the 8.83 ERA and 27 hits in 17.1 innings with hitters batting for a 360 AVE in the AL West?

    Welcome back to the AL East!

    LOL

  10. Erica - always OPPC - Sesame Street Mafia and GTLU supporter May 26th, 2010 at 12:43 pm

    Jerkface-

    I e-mailed the IT guy. This situation is long past ridiculous. And I see good posters disappearing at an alarming rate

  11. Chip May 26th, 2010 at 12:44 pm

    Good move bringing back Gaudin with Aceves seemingly out for a while more.

  12. benfica356 May 26th, 2010 at 12:44 pm

    Honestly, this is a great move. We needed another aceves type guy and gaudin was the perfect fit. I liked him a lot last year.

  13. Chris in C-Bus May 26th, 2010 at 12:44 pm

    That bum Joe West just ran Mark Buerhle after a balk call. Buerhle slammed his glove down in disgust. All this went down after the previous inning saw Buerhle and Ozzie challenge some of West’s ball/strike calls. West’s grudge only lasted one inning before both Ozzie and Buerhle were tossed.

  14. m May 26th, 2010 at 12:45 pm

    Oops. Totally forgot about Gaudin. Meh. Wasn’t he bitter on his way out? If so, I’m sure he feels differently now.

    And didn’t he totally suck in Oakland? Don’t know why, he was pretty good for us. Capt. Gaudin back in the fold. Who goes down? Is Melancon still here? If not him, Logan? Gotta be someone with options.

    And why wouldn’t they activate him before game 2?

    Chad gets more/less innings than 2009?

  17. Jerkface May 26th, 2010 at 12:47 pm

    Gaudin could be a good get for the yankees.

    he has given up 27 hits in 17.1 IP but struck out 20 and only walked 5 in that time. His HR/FB rate is way crazy out of whack with his normal rates, and his BABIP is too high.

    Getting back with the yankees and getting some longer outings with more rest inbetween might do him a lot of good.

  18. Chip May 26th, 2010 at 12:48 pm

    my guess on the roster move:

    Ace to the 60 day DL to create space on the 40 man roster and Boone Logan to AAA.

  19. Coach6423 May 26th, 2010 at 12:48 pm

    Does this mean the end for Boone Logan…if so, BEST SIGNING EVER!!!

  20. Erica - always OPPC - Sesame Street Mafia and GTLU supporter May 26th, 2010 at 12:49 pm

    Wasn’t Gaudin a potential spot starter?

    Maybe he will take the ball got the game continuation

  21. pat May 26th, 2010 at 12:50 pm

    “had the middle of the order been able to take advantage of the two-on, no-out situation in the fourth inning, the Yankees would have won the thing already.”

    And if Hudson, Mauer and Cuddyer gotten a hit in the 1st inning with Span on 2nd no outs, the Yankees could have lost.

    Another example of ifs and buts in baseball being a waste of time.

  22. Chip May 26th, 2010 at 12:51 pm

    Erica –

    I think it’s more likely that Sergio Mitre (who has pitched more recently than Gaudin) would get the call if the Yankees don’t score in the top of the 6th.

  23. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos May 26th, 2010 at 12:51 pm

    Welcome back, Chad Gaudin. Not a bad move, in spite of the fact that Gaudin wasn’t doing a good job in Oakland.

    Today’s Guess The Line Up is Now Open for Business.

    I will take lineups until 3:30. This is for the regularly scheduled game, not the suspended game.

    Thanks.

    Good luck. :)

  24. Brandon's Awesome (B/c my AWESOMENESS believes in letting Thames bat vs scrubs like Fernando NIEVES!) May 26th, 2010 at 12:51 pm

    If Gaudin starts pitching like 2009, I’d be pi$$ed if I’m OAK.

  25. Coach6423 May 26th, 2010 at 12:52 pm

    Im not sure if Gaudin can play in game 1, as he was not on the roster.

  26. pat May 26th, 2010 at 12:52 pm

    “Wasn’t he bitter on his way out?”

    I remember Coke and Bruney being grumblers but I thought Gaudin was a member of the class organization/greatest place I’ve ever played club?

  27. CR9 May 26th, 2010 at 12:53 pm

    Sorry, Erica :(

  28. Warning Track Power May 26th, 2010 at 12:54 pm

    great move. i assume the injury to Ace is going to last a very long time.
    Chad can fill that role and hopefully pitch like he did in ’09.
    his performance with the a’s was awful. almost a 9 ERA.

    I hadn’t realized that Gaudin hasn’t pitched since May 15th. I would guess Mitre too then

    CR9,

    Do you ever watch ‘Animal Cops’? That show actually makes me want to work for the SPCA.

    Rescuing animals must be one of the most rewarding things a person can do.

    ___

    It really is! The SICK AND HORRIBLE things that some people do to animals is CRIMINAL. There’s nothing better than giving a home to an abused animal or animal in need.

  33. Brandon's Awesome (B/c my AWESOMENESS believes in letting Thames bat vs scrubs like Fernando NIEVES!) May 26th, 2010 at 12:56 pm

    I still wouldn’t quit on Logan.

    Chad was more than classy on his way out thjs spring you were correct Pat and even said great things when the team was in Oakland and they gave him his ring.

  41. Duff Mulligan May 26th, 2010 at 1:06 pm

    The island isn’t done with Chad Gaudin yet.

    “he has awful peripherals, who match his career peripherals, which are also awful, and he cant get people out…”

    You don’t give up on lefties w/ that type of stuff, look at Morales in COL…and I don’t even think Boone has more than 10 IP under the belt.

  43. mick May 26th, 2010 at 1:06 pm

    looks like the mick imposter gets along better with erica than i do…or was that the erica imposter.

  44. mick May 26th, 2010 at 1:08 pm

    Is it possible Gaudin wasn’t used properly or was unhappy in Oak.?

    That could effect the way a player performs.

  45. Irreverent Discourse May 26th, 2010 at 1:09 pm

    CR9 – save the cows and chickens, right? oh, just the cuddly animals…

  46. SportsGeek May 26th, 2010 at 1:09 pm

    Regarding Gardner’s performance in the 2-hole…

    He had a slash line of .340/.389/.480/.869 in 11 games in the 2-hole prior to the last 4 games (not including the incomplete game). Obviously nothing to complain about there!

    Unfortunately, for the last 4 complete games, he has had 1 hit and 1 walk in 19 plate appearances- an atrocious .161 OPS. I call that the start of a slump (hopefully maybe the entire slump), NOT a “failure to perform in the 2-slot”.

    During these same 4 games Gardner was “protected” by his teammates as follows:
    Teixeira 3 hits, 1 walk in 18 PA’s – .399 OPS
    A-Rod 4 hits, 2 walks in 18 PA’s – .646 OPS
    Cano 5 hits, 0 walks in 17 PA’s – .647 OPS
    None of these 3 have been “satisfactory” over these 4 games. And these guys are making mega-bucks more than Gardner.

    Plus, we all know the fallacy of small sample sizes…

    Until we have Granderson back.. and maybe even after that.. I say keep Gardner in the 2-hole whenever it makes sense!

    Maybe it’ll be like a reverse Brett Tomko situation. Remember that game Tomko threw against the Yanks last season when he signed w/Oakland?

    my guess on the roster move:

    Ace to the 60 day DL to create space on the 40 man roster and Boone Logan to AAA.”

    That would put Aceves out until after the All Star break – it that is the case then you know he needs surgery. That said, my guess is that Shane Lindsey’s time on the Yankees is about to come to an end.

    Related question – can Gaudin be activated for the remainder of the suspended game or does he need to wait for the regular one?

    If you are out there.

    Just deleting posts isn’t gonna cut it.

    You need to be more agressive in policing this space, or it’s going to turn into something neither you or the paper are going to want to be a part of.

    Not been around the past 5 days much, has it gotten much work since the end of last week?

    CR9 -

    I missed so many episodes of the Good Wife that I didn’t bother DVR-ing. But, I think I can find them online. Or look for the reruns and DVR the whole season and watch when there’s nothing on the rest of the summer. Or when the Yankees are on the west coast.

    Jason22-

    To answer your question (and yes, this is “really me”). Someone has been having a lot of fun pretending to be me the last few days. I am really losing patience with it. I just said before I would stop posting, but I wanted to answer your question.

    I am really, really tired of seeing things appear on this board that I didn’t say.

    Okay, resuming Lohud hiatus now.

    Bye Yankee people

    Don’t think Gaudin is here to get big outs. He is here for mop up duty, since you cannot rely on Park to do anything right, you need Mitre to take over for Ace… Got news for you Ace ain’t coming back anytime soon. Bulging Discs are not 2-3 week things… could be 2-3 months before hes ready

    ” Chip May 26th, 2010 at 1:31 pm

    I think Gaudin has to wait for the second game to start to be on the roster.”

    Logically you think it would work that way, but something in the back of my mind says that you play with the roster you have on the day the game resumes. I’ve been wrong before, though.

    In any event, I wouldn’t activate Gaudin until after the finish of the first game – that way you can burn innings from whoever is being sent out in the first game if need be.

    Cervelli was the last batter in the 5th. I’d put in Moeller so we can have cervelli for 9 innings instead of 4.

  127. JM May 26th, 2010 at 1:49 pm

    CR9,

    My little white kitty that I lost was 14 years old, which is really not that old. She had a lung disease that they never could quite figure out but apparently such diseases are common in cats. She fought it for two years, was very tough. Her quality of life was great most of the time with medication but then she started to slip and I had to do what was best for her. She was a great cat, only 6 pounds but so feisty!

    They all have different personalities. Elvis and Petunia are the remaining ones, both are nearly 15 now. Elvis is very, very friendly, Petunia kind of standoffish but still loveable.

    Hope no one else minds me going on and on about cats on the blog. LOL.

    By the way, welcome back Chad Gaudin! I always liked him last year and think he could be a valuable long man out of the pen or a spot starter if needed. (Mandatory blog Yankee content.)

  128. NYYROC May 26th, 2010 at 1:49 pm

    If you are out there.

    Just deleting posts isn’t gonna cut it.

    You need to be more agressive in policing this space, or it’s going to turn into something neither you or the paper are going to want to be a part of.

    Many people feel this way so I hope you take their concerns seriously.
    —————————————————————————————————
    MTU -

    It’s not on Chad and Sam. They are writers. All they can do is go to the developers and request/suggest features etc for the blog.

    I get a feeling that they are a small team of developers and have to work on other sites and projects as well and that’s why they haven’t dealt with this issue yet. Off course they could also just be lazy and won’t give attention to the problem until people start leaving and the # of page views starts going way down because regular posters get frustrated.

    This is a WordPress blog.

    Implementing authentication is very easy, also blocking IPs is very easy to do as well.

    I’m a software developer myself and I too find it frustrating that nothing has been done when the problem has been present for very long time already.

  155. MTU (aka GBURL) May 26th, 2010 at 2:09 pm

    The Red Sox are imposters.

    They are pretending to be a good team but they will eventually be discovered.

    The Rays are imposters.

    They are pretending that they can play .700 ball all season, and suffer no injuries.

    We are imposters because we aren’t yet living up to our full potential.

    With all the impersonating going on it’s hard to tell who’s who from who’s who.

    We need some good short relievers for the 7th-8th inning, not some long man

    Right now Gaudin is striking out 10 per/9 and walking 2 per/9. Aceves wasn’t really a long man, he was a reliever that could go long. IE he’d get innings in closer games than a normal long man.

    Looking at some of the lineups today and I’m thinking that Swish may be the guy to bat 2nd against LH pitchers. Not because Gardner can’t hit them, because he can run against them.
    I guess when Granderson and Posada are both healthy again, we should have:
    Jeter
    Swish
    Tex
    Alex
    Cano
    Posada

    Aceves is a HUGE loss to the Yankee pen, any way you cut it.

    Hopefully he comes back in time for the playoffs, but I want him to start to keep his back under control. Or trade him ‘as a starter’ to another team for something good.

    This year as a reliever his K rates were troublingly low.

    We will need to trade for Joakim Soria at the deadline.

    Why?

    Park stinks. Logan stinks. Aceves is hurt. Marte is inconsistent. Melancon is a gas can. Mitre might be needed as an emergency starter. Gaudin stinks. Joba is a mess.

    It’s Mo and pray for rain out there!

    I’m definetely not a tech guy (although i did stay at a holiday inn express last night), but this may be a way to nullify the imposters and still not have to register. Why not have everyone post a picture of themselves (or their pet or of something only they have possession of) ala facebook. That way when an imposter posts something and it doesn’t show the picture that was selected, viola, you now know if its the real person or an imposter.

    The picture can’t be of something you get off the internet because that would be too easy for an imposter to download and use (for example sesame street characters – sorry erica – although you can take a picture of one of your stuffed SS characters and use that one).

    Just a thought….

    *****************************************

    OK – I’ll take a stab at this although I honestly don’t know too much about computer tech stuff. In the boxes where you type in your name and email address and website before posting a comment – have a fourth box where you can attach a simple jpeg (or whatever) picture that you have saved on your computer. The lohud tech guys will then have to add some sort of script(? don’t know if that is the correct word) that posts the picture right next to your name date and time your sent your comment. An imposter won’t have access to your computer or jpeg picture so if I use a picture of my 2 sons no one will be able to use that picture but me – so if anyone wanted to use my name as an imposter they would only be able to use my name and not my picture and therefore people on here would be able to automatically know that that wasn’t me because my picture wasn’t attached.

    The Yankees must have a need for batting practice pitchers, hence the signing of Gaudin. He should go to AAA to straighten himself out before giving the majors another try.

    Eventually, this board is gonna have to require registration. Its the only way to stop the impersonating. Miggs is right though. If we didn’t respond to these trolls, this wouldn’t happen as much. By letting them get to you, you only encourage them to increase their efforts. Wouldn’t it be great though, if you could not just ban them, but somehow zap their computers? That would stop them I bet.

  226. CR9 May 26th, 2010 at 3:16 pm

    Im not disagreeing on Giambi and O’Neil, but Matsui in 2003, IIRC, also had that song.

  238. GreenBeret7 May 26th, 2010 at 3:30 pm

    I’m guessing that Mitre will be the long man in the bullpen for the first game with Logan as the first lefty. Logan then sent to AAA after the first game with Gaudin being activated as the long man for game two.

    Your last statement is exactly why you didn’t appreciate the ending. You haven’t watched the show in 4 years. Those of us who lasted the entire series are emotionally satisfied with the ending.

  262. pat May 26th, 2010 at 3:54 pm

    Mixed messages…..

    BloggingBombers Girardi wouldn’t say it, but it sounds like Boone Logan will start the sixth. Girardi said he’ll use the same guy whether NYY scores or not.

    AndrewMarchand Robertson will begin the sixth for the #Yankees.

  263. ac1 May 26th, 2010 at 3:55 pm

    joe confuses me sometimes. why robertson in the 6th? It’s basically a new game. Why not Mitre? If you wont use relievers twice, then what sense is there in wasting the entire pen in the first game?

  264. ac1 May 26th, 2010 at 3:56 pm

    i just say that Pat. No one knows what is going on. Maybe Gaudin will start the 6th…

  265. Jerkface May 26th, 2010 at 3:56 pm

    I was not emotionally satisfied with the ending. The stakes of season 1-3 lost were completely tossed out once it became about Jacob v Smoke Monster.

    Infact, its really a different show almost (other than the same characters participating in it) once it gets to time travel and finally to the alternate-purgatory.

    The alt-LOST universe was a huge cop out as well. Thats the worst heaven construct I’ve ever seen! The best part of the LOST finale was the end of Jack’s story (fitting) and those who survived/escaped (except 1 whose name rhymes with Bait!)

    They didn’t pay off a ton of questions raised in the earlier season, but thats not a problem, except for that they paid off a few questions in such a way that it was completely stupid !

  266. pat May 26th, 2010 at 3:56 pm

    BloggingBombers Apparently, Girardi just told reporters on the field that Dave Robertson will start the sixth. He also said nobody would pitch twice today.

  267. Joe May 26th, 2010 at 3:58 pm

    Ugh… Why Robertson over Logan? Three of the first 4 Twins hitters are lefties.

  268. m May 26th, 2010 at 3:58 pm

    Sorry, but a bunch of people ******* in a church in an alternate ******** does not and would not have satisfied me. (**** = lame attempt at spoiler avoidance)

    But I do appreciate that Jin Kwon will reincarnate as Det. Chin Ho Kelly in his next “life”.

  269. NYYROC May 26th, 2010 at 3:59 pm

    As long as the NYY win, I’m not really concerned. But for the BP this is a double header. The pen could get burned out today and impact the game tomorrow. Isn’t his exactly why Mitre is on the team? He could probably pitch 6 innings if necesary.

  270. Jerkface May 26th, 2010 at 3:59 pm

    joe confuses me sometimes. why robertson in the 6th? It?s basically a new game. Why not Mitre? If you wont use relievers twice, then what sense is there in wasting the entire pen in the first game?

    He has 4 innings to hold the twins to 0 runs while also scoring atleast 1 for the yankees.

  271. m May 26th, 2010 at 3:59 pm

    But Jerkface being the jerk he is spoiled it anyway. :)

  272. bob(the original) May 26th, 2010 at 3:59 pm

    Hopefully Logan does pitch in the first game. Then he can be shipped back to Scranton (for good I hope).

  273. m May 26th, 2010 at 4:01 pm

    Robertson is not a long reliever.

    If he’s going short relief, put either of the two LH gas cans out there, and follow up with Robertson.

    But whatever. We need to score runs. In the 6th would be nice.

  274. CR9 May 26th, 2010 at 4:01 pm

    If you didn’t care about the show enough to watch it for its whole run — or better put, if you actively decided you would not watch it after a couple seasons — why on earth would you expect that the finale would satisfy you in some way and why would you take umbrage when it didn’t?

    Wow. Art Linkletter died. He was 97. (I honestly didn’t know he was still alive. :oops: )

    #Yankees have scored 22 runs in the ninth inning this month, but only have one pie to show for it

    Another brilliant cashman move, NOT!

    The good record of this team so far was built on the backs of 6 or 7 men (CC, Burnett, Pettitte, Hughes, Mo, Cano and Posada) very early on but generally this team has a horrendous construction and should be embarrassed with how its performing. .500 record last month is indicative. Every cashman move of the past 12 months looks like crap to me: Winn, Johnson, Logan, Vazquez, Thames, even Gradnerson (very flawed, can’t hit lefties, should be a platoon player). Good job cashman blowing up less than 6 months what was a championship team.

    Haha, Nick in SF. I don’t take my tv viewing seriously.

    I can honestly say I did not know who Art Linkletter was :oops:

    But speaking of RIP, Simon Monjack, the widow of the recently deceased Brittany Murphy, passed away a few days ago :(

    Same way Brittany died, same bed, same person discovered him (Brittany’s mother)

    Terrible events.

    I see someone posted that Roberston is going to start the 6th inning.
    Is that legit or just a guess?

    DRob has good success against LH batters, so Joe probably wants him in for 1 inning. Then he could go to Mitre. DRob would still be available tomorrow if he only goes 1 inning.

    Boy Kevin Slaten, host of sports radio http://www.team1380.net is live streaming now in St Louis , and calling Albert Pujols and Matt Holliday out for suspected steroid usage.
    Kevin is on firyah. He is the ONLY sports host in STL that calls out the team, ownership, Larussa,, McGwire and the bogus sports media in STL that kisses the Cardinals butt, to gain access.

    Kevin believes that Holliday had to stop his roids when Manny got busted, because his numbers have fallen off since last year, the same with Pujols..

    Not sure I agree with bringing back Gaudin when you have Nova and Romulo Sanchez pitching pretty well at Triple A. Gaudin was terrible in the spring and not much better for Oakland in a weaker division. He was 0-2 with a 8.81era. 17.1 IP and 16ER against. Pretty awful just like the rest of our bullpen outside of Mo.

    Pags&Rags(great name).
    The Gaudin acquisition is not much of a risk. If Gaudin pitches like he did with the a’s, then he will be asked to leave with a quickness.
    If he pitches like he did in ’09, then he will help this team get a lot of wins.

    I hear what you say about the kids in AAA, but Gaudin pitched well last year, is a veteran and can probably adjust to being used in various roles much better than the AAA kids.

    You can find some other herbal remedies who have been shown to be successful inside avoiding baldness and also re-growing head of hair nevertheless the record can do not delay – about.

    Also, if it’s a marriage gone wrong, or a bad result or a sour friendship, women have been seen to take shelter in the comfort of shopping new shoes be it a shimmering pair of stilettoes or a beige peep-toe. The shoe business has been a flourishing one despite the on-going global recession.
