    I lived in the same apartment building (same floor) as Hazel Mae when she was in Boston. Not as hot in person as on camera.
    Phil Hughes – you are seeing the league adjust to him a bit. They were overpowered by his fastball early in the season and he is getting into a bit of a rut with his pitch selection. Time for him to adjust back and incorporate the rest of his repertoire more fully.

    She has a bit of a stroke face but that body is A-Ok. Especially for an older woman.

    Definitely thumbs up on Hazel Mae. Hazel Mae > Erin Andrews.

    Hazel had a great month of June, her stats are trending up. She has a marvelous coefficient factor and her bell curve is off the charts.

  4. upstate kate June 30th, 2010 at 4:07 pm

    looks like no winners at GTLU
    a few were close but had Colin and Cisco reversed

  5. tampayank June 30th, 2010 at 4:08 pm

    Hazel Mae is not in Erin Andrews league

  6. Lisa June 30th, 2010 at 4:08 pm

    Why is Cervelli catching again? Posada had Monday off and did not catch last night either Cervelli’s offense since mid-May is terrible.

  7. Irreverent Discourse June 30th, 2010 at 4:09 pm

    vblade – lol, look how wrong you are.

    Beg to differ. Erin Andrews is a triumph of looks over substance.

    Besides, she has been garbage in the month of June, have you seen her outliers? Her assets have been producing a large standard deviation of late.

  9. theyankeewarrior June 30th, 2010 at 4:12 pm

    Lisa-

    Because the other options are Huffman, Pena, Russo and Gardner (who is resting his forearm)

    It’s better to be safe than sorry with Posada. He’s approaching 40 and doesn’t need to catch anymore than he has to.

  10. theyankeewarrior June 30th, 2010 at 4:12 pm

    vblade –

    Erin Andrews >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Hazel Mae

  11. I Like Inge June 30th, 2010 at 4:13 pm

    Seriously Kim Jones looks better than Hazel Mae or Erin Andrews.

  12. saucY June 30th, 2010 at 4:13 pm

    Hazel Mae is nothing special. she has nothing on Michelle Beadle or Kim Jones. Not sure why i’m posting this, but yeah…

  13. tampayank June 30th, 2010 at 4:13 pm

    EA might be leaving ESPN to do the ‘entertainment career’….she’ll never admit it but she loves the attention that the ‘peephole’ incident has brought her…..outside of sports fans(college football and some baseball) no one knew who she was

  14. vblade June 30th, 2010 at 4:14 pm

    You really all like Erin Andrews? She doesn’t do it for me. I guess to each his own.

  15. upstate kate June 30th, 2010 at 4:14 pm

    do I dare to ask what a “stroke face” is???

  16. vblade June 30th, 2010 at 4:14 pm

    OMG, Kim Jones better than both Erin and Hazel? You cannot be serious….

  17. tampayank June 30th, 2010 at 4:16 pm

    Michelle Beadle beats them all

  18. Lisa June 30th, 2010 at 4:16 pm

    I realize it is slim pickins but Posada’s offense slumps when he is the DH. I like Cervelli but I think it’s overkill at this point and there is no doubt we need some better depth on the bench.

  19. RayVT June 30th, 2010 at 4:19 pm

    Aaron June 30th, 2010 at 4:06 pm

    LOL! I took graduate statistics, but we agree. I guess I should have taken more courses in conversation listening! LOL!

  20. champ809 June 30th, 2010 at 4:19 pm

    Joe is so inconsistent….what happened to needing to breakup the lefties…he’s cost me 3 GTLU wins by not being a consistent manager!

    I agree with this lineup and think the Velli should be catching 3 days a week…

  21. pat June 30th, 2010 at 4:20 pm

    Posada DH tonight catching tomorrow because day game after night game?

  22. Patrick June 30th, 2010 at 4:20 pm

    Definitely thumbs up on Hazel Mae. Hazel Mae > Erin Andrews.

    “vblade – lol, look how wrong you are.”

    Yeah pretty much. You are a madman vblade

    “do I dare to ask what a “stroke face” is???”

    It means her face looks like she had a stroke

    Hey, I don’t like Erin Andrews, never have and never will. Like brunettes much better. To each his own, as I’ve said.

    The sports sideline personality I find the most attractive though, is Leanne Tweeden. Hot damn.

  24. sandy g June 30th, 2010 at 4:30 pm

    the yankees should bring up montero after the all star break and catch him with cervelli and make posada the dh. just have posada catch 3 times a week and cervelli and montero the rest.

  25. Aaron June 30th, 2010 at 4:32 pm

    Ray, if you don’t mind, what do you do for a living that involves statistics?

  26. Patrick June 30th, 2010 at 4:34 pm

    LOL! I took graduate statistics, but we agree. I guess I should have taken more courses in conversation listening! LOL!

    Like you took Statistics 1 as a grad student or you have a graduate degree in statistics?

  27. mick June 30th, 2010 at 4:35 pm

    hannah storm!

  28. vinny-b June 30th, 2010 at 4:36 pm

    Erin Andrews = plain jane

  29. Frank June 30th, 2010 at 4:36 pm

    Cervelli has fallen into a tail spin. Maybe he’ll try to bunt his away on again.

  30. vinny-b June 30th, 2010 at 4:37 pm

    Sage Steele = utterly perfect

  31. Aaron June 30th, 2010 at 4:37 pm

    If he took statistics as a grad student, he was either a math, chemistry (me), physics, or ecology student. Or business/accounting of course, but I tend to forget those guys. haha.

    I work for Maine Wildlife as an organic chemist, and I had to take them in my sixth year, but I’m by far, not as educated as someone who is, say, a math teacher or ecology guy.

  32. Patrick June 30th, 2010 at 4:38 pm

    “hannah storm! ”

    ” Sage Steele = utterly perfect”

    Ok now it sounds like you guys are just naming porn stars or something.

  33. vinny-b June 30th, 2010 at 4:39 pm

    Sage Steele is with ESPN.

    not a porn star.

  34. Patrick June 30th, 2010 at 4:39 pm

    I took statistics in high school then another statistics class in college. what does that make me?

    protip: it was a joke

  37. Aaron June 30th, 2010 at 4:41 pm

    Actually, a lot of masters level students take an advanced statistics course in addition to the normal undergrad prerequisite so they can decipher, use, and implement data they’re using for purposes of their thesis. This holds true for most pHd students as well. No matter the concentration, most have to have some higher level of understanding to adequately write any sort of publication.

  38. Aaron June 30th, 2010 at 4:42 pm

    Normal. It allows you to not read into a bunch of information you should just leave alone to begin with:)

  39. DB June 30th, 2010 at 4:46 pm

    One of my guilty pleasures is listening to Kim Jones. She’s got some cute lispy thing going on…I don’t know but it’s attractive. I don’t get tired of watching Hazel Mae either for that matter. I guess executives know what they are doing when they mix a pretty face with someone who knows what they are talking about.

    I don’t use my small amount of statistics knowledge when discussing baseball..

    It’s not even like advanced baseball statistics are that complicated. In fact, most of the “advanced” stats used nowadays would be torn to shreds by legit mathematicians.

  42. Sarah June 30th, 2010 at 4:47 pm

    Not that its particularly baseball relevant, but Psych and Sociology masters students also takes a masters level statistics class; deciphering all the data from social experiments.

  43. Wave Your Hat June 30th, 2010 at 4:50 pm

    “Basically it means anything less than 100 opportunities is worthless. Also, probably 5% of the values of 100% would be discarded as outliers or not the norm.”

    Just so I understand what is being argued, are you saying that until a pitcher has 3 full seasons of starts (and assuming no change in ability during those three years) you can’t draw any conclusions as to what type of start would fall outside of his “expected” range of starts?

  44. champ809 June 30th, 2010 at 4:53 pm

    Montero should be left alone in Scranton for the rest of the season and allowed to continue the trend that he’s established as well as develop his defensive game whih is most important for him at this stage….

    If any C prospect were to get traded for Lee it has to be Romine who while I’m sure will be a fine major league catcher does not posess the ceiling of either Montero or Sanchez….

    I for one am against trading for Lee mid season….he will be available in the offseason for just a check….

    The one wild card is if AJ’s bad streak becomes an injury then you make the move around Romine, Adams and one of Phelps/Nova/McCallister…..

    To me Romine,Adams and Noesi is a lot to give up but it’s buffered by the reality that the Yanks wiil retain Lee so it’s not just a rental and the depth that we have behind each guy is actually better than the guys we’d give up i.e. Montero/Sanchez, Brackman/Bettances/Banny….Adams I think is going to be a real real good hitter but guys like Joseph/Paredes/Suttle I think have an excellent chance to be excellent infield prospects as early as next season

  45. yankswin27 June 30th, 2010 at 4:54 pm

    Erin Andrews<3

  46. Patrick June 30th, 2010 at 4:54 pm

    The Yanks are not trading for Cliff Lee…

  47. Jerkface June 30th, 2010 at 4:55 pm

    Hopefully the mets trade for Cliff Lee before we have to face him again.

  48. California June 30th, 2010 at 4:56 pm

    Nice graphics on Mo. I really like how sometimes he’s able to throw a thousand baseballs at a batter all at once:

    http://www.nytimes.com/interac.....tches.html

  49. vblade June 30th, 2010 at 4:56 pm

    The Yankees are likely not trading for Cliff Lee just like they didn’t trade for CC Sabathia or for Johan Santana. It’s nice to throw around the possibilities but the chances of it actually happening are pretty remote.

  50. champ809 June 30th, 2010 at 4:58 pm

    I agree Patrick but they would if a starter went down…

    And if AJ’s slump becomes something else then Lee will be a Yank…

    That’s why these other teams have to feel some pressure to get him in the next week or two…

    Sherman has an interesting take on the Lee scenario on his 3up blog…

  51. Jerkface June 30th, 2010 at 5:00 pm

    Even if a starter ‘went down’ (how long?) the yankees still wouldn’t trade for Lee. And its very reactionary to trade for Lee because AJ has had a bad month.
