Pregame notes: Chad Moeller safe for now

Yankees Orioles BaseballUntil further notice, Chad Moeller’s spot on the Yankees bench is secure.

“Until (Jorge Posada) can get through a game without the issue that he feels,” Joe Girardi said. “I don’t know how much of it is fatigue and soreness and the combination of both. I think we have to be careful with that.”

Girardi would not announce his plan for Posada this weekend, but Girardi did say he won’t catch Posada back-to-back games just yet. That seems to set Posada up for a Saturday start behind the plate, Sunday off or at DH, and then two out of three games against Arizona. After an off day Thursday, the could again play two out of three against the Dodgers. In theory, starting at DH tonight has allowed Posada to catch as many games as possible during the National League road trip.

“I don’t necessarily think it’s the not being able to go back-to-back days (that causes concern),” Girardi said. “I think it’s more feeling it in the eighth and ninth inning is more of a concern. Not being able to go back-to-back days, we can deal with that because if he doesn’t start the second game you still have Cervi that can start. The fact you might have to pull him in the middle of a game, that’s a concern.”

Here’s Girardi’s pregame session.

Phillies Yankees Baseball• Obviously Alex Rodriguez came through his pregame drills just fine. This will be his first start at third base since he was pulled from last weekend’s game in Baltimore.

• Getting Rodriguez back to a fulltime infielder and Posada back to regular starts behind the plate could go a long way toward building some consistency for this lineup. “Our lineup has not been consistent because of the injuries,” Girardi said. “Hopefully this is the end of them and we’ll be able to get through this.”

• Speaking of injuries, Curtis Granderson is fine, just getting a day off against a lefty. “Everything is 100 percent,” Granderson said. “(Girardi) came and told me, be ready.”

• One more injury update, I saw Marcus Thames walking into the cages to hit this afternoon. “He feels better every day,” Girardi said. “Obviously, he’s on the 15-day DL and we’ll evaluate him when we get (to the 15th day). But it is good to see him moving around.”

• Girardi wouldn’t tip his hand as to who the Yankees might call up when they’re ready to cut the third catcher. “I believe that our organization has people who could help us,” is all he would say about it.

• There remains no timetable for Dave Eiland’s return. “I think these guys are pretty aware of what they need to do and what gets them on track,” Girardi said. “I think they probably have heard enough of Dave in their ear that they can probably hear his voice sometimes when he’s not even here. But we do miss him. There’s no doubt about it. We do miss him.”

• This will the Yankees second crack at Hisanori Takahashi. He pitched six scoreless against them last month. “Obviously our guys have a better idea of what he’s going to do,” Girardi said. “But it’s not like they have 15 or 20 at-bats off him. I’m sure he’s even a little bit different now that he’s stretched out more. I always think it’s somewhat of an advantage for a pitcher when you haven’t seen him before. Our guys have a better idea what his pitches do.”

    Great stuff Chad!

    I have a feeling the Yanks are going to crush Takahashi tonight. They saw him once, now it’s time to own him

    vblade,

    I don’t want to turn this into Nets blog but I have nothing to say about the Yanks. That plus Nets fans are few and far between so I never get to talk Nets :)

    If Avery can turn the team into a great defensive unit I’m sold, that would be huge. Agreed about Lopez and Harris. Lopez will be a top 5 center very soon. Harris is more of a scorer and I was hoping the Nets would get the first pick so they could trade Harris and take Wall. But still, if Devin can stay healthy he’s a good player.

    I’ve been reading that Favors has a ton of talent but he’s really raw so it might take awhile for him to be ready. And Yi is so bad, I give him a few months then get rid of him if he can’t produce.

    Yeah I like Williams too, he can play anywhere.

    Getting a SF/SG type would be ideal (like Wade or Lebron) but I doubt either of those guys would play for the Nets. So that leaves guys like Bosh, Amare, and yes Joe Johnson. Johnson might be the best fit if Favors is drafted :(

    ——————————

    I don’t like Joe Johnson, he disappeared on the Hawks in their first round series, and he doesn’t have a track record of actually producing when it matters. Not a guy I’d allocate a max contract too. Thorn knows this, he won’t spend unnecessarily.

    I think the athleticism of Favors will be huge in the frontcourt. Yi can provide a change of pace shooting big, and provides a steady presence when Favors hits the unavoidable ups and downs of a rookie year. Favors did 12/8/2 in 27 MPG at G-Tech, so there’s a lot of promise there. Hoping Lopez could tutor him on some of the nuances of the game, since he’s pretty raw.

    Avery is an isolation coach, so it’ll be interesting to see how he does without a singular superstar like Dirk. If they can get LeBron here, that would be perfect. The Nets are weakest at SG/SF, so my dream scenario have both LeBron and Wade coming over. :D

    Harris has, and never will be a true PG. He just doesn’t seem to have a knack for it. He’s more of an undersized SG at this point. However, you can’t play him at SG cause he’s too small, so we just hope he can improve.

    Interestingly, the most likely FA acquisition for the Nets would be Amare, because he can slot right in at SF and not worry about rebounding the ball, which he is weak at. If they can sign Amare and a 2nd tier guard like John Salmons, they’ll be a playoff team.

  6. Todd June 18th, 2010 at 5:26 pm

    The thing is… do you want Favors if you’re going to sign a PF FA anyway?

  7. Tom in N.J. June 18th, 2010 at 5:27 pm

    76′ers could draft Favors now that they traded thier center.

    I’d like to see the Nets get Wesley Johnson.

    Go Nets!

  8. Phil the Thrill June 18th, 2010 at 5:28 pm

    Nets talk? Ugh.

  9. GW Plunkett June 18th, 2010 at 5:28 pm

    Any idea why the Yanks are being so secretive about Eiland?

  10. Patrick June 18th, 2010 at 5:32 pm

    vblade,

    Good stuff man, I mostly agree with everything. I just don’t see Wade or Lebron going to the Nets unfortunately. I’d be ok with Amare since I doubt Favors will be a difference maker in his first year.

    Tom, I think the 76ers go after Evan Turner. But if they pick Favors I think the Nets would jump on Turner.

    Being a gigantic Syracuse fan, Wes Johnson would be fun to watch on the Nets. But it might be even cooler if the T-wolves pick him so he can play with Jonny Flynn. :) Minnesota will be my second team

    —————————

    Unless the Nets have a concrete plan of signing Boozer, I think Favors would be the best pick.

    Even if they sign Amare, they can slot him at SF. Dirk isn’t going anywhere also, Cuban loves him.

    Yi and Favors would be a nice combo.

    If the Sixers get Favors, I’ll happily take Evan Turner and solve the SG hole. Then you can focus on signing Amare/Boozer/LeBron combo. Wade is unlikely to leave Miami anyway.

    ———————————-

    I like Wesley Johnson – but I like Favors and Turner better. Johnson looked fairly impressive in Syracuse, but I just don’t see the Nets drafting two SF’s in back to back years, especially if they have plans of fixing the position permanently through signing LeBron or Amare.

    ———————————

    The Sixers love the idea of Jrue Holiday, Turner and Iguodala. I don’t think they will pass on him, but I’ve wavered slightly since they traded Dalembert. It’s interesting to see what they will do.

    I’d gladly snatch up Turner in that case, as I’ve said. 20/9 on 50% shooting in his junior year at Ohio State is pretty darn good.

  13. vinny-b (Brett Gardner will never see the bench again) June 18th, 2010 at 5:36 pm

    “Cashman used to be on with Francesa all the time. Mike’s been at the Stadium multiple times this year and no Cash to be seen or heard from. Wonder if something is up with that?”
    ——————————————————————–

    props on the insight.

    if put myself in Cashman’s shoes, i would never go on that show. It simply wouldn’t happen

  14. Wave Your Hat June 18th, 2010 at 5:36 pm

    I like the Kentucky kid DeMarcus Cousins but he’s not a good fit for the Nets. I’d like to see the Sixers pass on Turner so the Nets could get him, but I doubt that happens.

  15. vinny-b (Brett Gardner will never see the bench again) June 18th, 2010 at 5:38 pm

    it would be robbing Peter to pay Paul.

    While I was out hiking I thought of another movie with some great scenery.

    —————–

    Cousins is a notch in athleticism below Favors, but the consensus is that he goes at #4 or #5. I’m almost 100% that Turner and Favors don’t fall below #3, which is the Nets’ pick. Favor’s measurements are comparable to Dwight Howards’ – same build, length, and athleticism – which is why scouts are so high on this guy.

  18. vinny-b (Brett Gardner will never see the bench again) June 18th, 2010 at 5:40 pm

    thank you, MTU. Will look for it, bro.

  20. Bret the Hitman June 18th, 2010 at 5:41 pm

    I wonder if the Sixers would take Devin Harris + 2011 1st round pic for their 2nd pic.

    I don’t think so. They’re high on Holiday, and Louis Williams is pretty capable. I don’t see why they’d want another combo guard when they can just draft Turner.

  23. Patrick June 18th, 2010 at 5:44 pm

    Demarcus Cousins is super fat. He’s big but out of shape..

  24. Tom in N.J. June 18th, 2010 at 5:45 pm

    Nets also have the 27th pick in the first round, FWIW.

    He has average explosiveness at best. If I were going to compare him to a current NBA player, it would be Nick Collison. Not someone I’d want to take at #3, TBH.

  26. Tom in N.J. June 18th, 2010 at 5:48 pm

    Rudy Gay and David Lee will be the guys the Nets get.

  27. Bret the Hitman June 18th, 2010 at 5:48 pm

    I think the Nets would be better off with Wall or Turner if they can trade up. I’m not sold on the big men.

  28. Bret the Hitman June 18th, 2010 at 5:49 pm

    Rudy Gay and David Lee would be quite a haul.

    Is Gay unrestricted?

    only 2 years till Brooklyn.

  30. Tom in N.J. June 18th, 2010 at 5:50 pm

    He’s restricted but I have a feeling Memphis would not match-they are broke.

    —————

    Yup, we have Mark Cuban to thank for that pick. lol

    I’d like to see them take Greivis Vazquez at that spot if he’s available. Dynamic guard out of Maryland, reminds me a lot of Rudy Fernandez. He has a strong jump shot and can spread the floor – in addition to running an offense in short spurts. The Nets don’t really have a capable backup PG so it might make sense.

    ————————————-

    Rudy Gay would be an excellent consolation price if Prokhorov can’t pry Wade away from Miami.

    If the Nets go all in, I’d like to see Gay and Amare, then Avery can install a high-press and trap, uptempo offense.

    Although, if Avery has a hand in who they will sign, Amare’s defense will certainly come into question.

  37. O*Line June 18th, 2010 at 5:54 pm

    He reminds me of James Bond. He’ll be great for the Nets

  38. Patrick June 18th, 2010 at 5:54 pm

    Honestly I don’t think either one is worth a max contract… teams are going to overpay both of those guys I hope it’s not the Nets

    Although I think Gay can play SG with his length and athleticism.

  40. Tom in N.J. June 18th, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    Never heard of them MTU. I gotta get in touch with my GF’s cousin-she’s in some bluegrass band. And from what I hear she’s pretty good too.

  41. Bret the Hitman June 18th, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    I think Lee is a better bargain than Amare given Amare’s D.

  42. Tom in N.J. June 18th, 2010 at 5:57 pm

    I think the Nets are going to have to over pay, Patrick.

    They could just sit on the cap space this year and wait to use it the offseason before they move to Brooklyn.

  43. vblade June 18th, 2010 at 5:57 pm

    The Nets’ FA plans hinges a lot on who they draft.

    If it’s Turner, you can go Amare-Boozer, Gay-Boozer, Gay-Lee, LeBron-Boozer, or LeBron-Amare (wow).

    If it’s Favors, options are more limited because you have both PF and C committed to.

    In that case, it would be Joe Johnson-LeBron, Wade-LeBron or LeBron-Amare.

  63. Patrick June 18th, 2010 at 6:15 pm

    “to me Chris Paul is the #1 overall prize in the NBA.

    (at least for a team without a premire PG)”

    Now that the game is more dominated by PG rather than big men, I totally agree. Put CP3 on the Nets with Lopez and surround them with talent and that’s a great team.

    “As a Cav’s fan I would rather see LeBron go to the Nets instead of the Knicks. Although I think he will end up in Chicago.”

    I think he goes to the team he thinks will help him win a championship. People talk about the Knicks because he’ll get more endorsements or whatever but I think he’ll probably go Chicago and play with Rose.

    Nice to know that Granderson reports that everything is 100 %. Just a day off against a lefty. Granderson can be ready at a moment’s notice to rack up another stikeout. Especially against any lefty, including a couple of Little Leaguers.
    At everything being 100%–Granderson is hitting .236, with 18 rbi’s, and a strikeout or two every game. I think Girardi is going more for addition by subtraction tonight as far as this superstar is concerned

    Nice to know that Granderson reports that everything is 100 %. Just a day off against a lefty. Granderson can be ready at a moment’s notice to rack up another stikeout. Especially against any lefty, including a couple of Little Leaguers.
    At everything being 100%–Granderson is hitting .236, with 18 rbi’s, and a strikeout or two every game. I think Girardi is going more for addition by subtraction tonight as far as this superstar is concerned

    ———-

    Yeah, because Chad Huffman is an obvious upgrade over Granderson.

    I wish people would stop with the stupidity but I know it’s asking for too much.

    Chad – You have lost control of this blog!

    The few that think they own the blog have turned into an E-mail IM to talk about everything, except the Yankees.

    B-Ball is over, give it a rest. You think you own the blog, very well, than it’s yours to send directly to the crapper.

    Top 10 most disliked Sports Figures–Yahoo:

    Right behind Vick in this year’s poll: Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis, a longtime maverick with a history of clashing with the NFL, coaches and politicians in Northern and Southern California over stadium deals that have led him to move the club twice. Also making the list is fellow renegade NFL owner Jerry Jones, who likes to run the Dallas Cowboys as more of a free-standing business than as part of a league.

    Others making an appearance: baseball’s steroid poster boys Alex Rodriguez and Mark McGwire (McGwire’s return to coaching this year made him eligible for the list), along with football wide receiver diva Terrell Owens and gun-wielding NBA star Gilbert Arenas.

    The most significant new entries this year, unsurprisingly, are Tiger Woods and Ben Roethlisberger
