Postgame notes: Jeter’s tribute continues

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Notes, Podcast on Jul 11, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Yankees Mariners BaseballWhen Derek Jeter goes to the plate on Tuesday, his All-Star introduction will come from Bob Sheppard, who’s legendary voice will once again announce the Yankees captain.

“It’s a great idea,” Jeter said. “He deserves it.”

Jeter said he came up with the idea five or six years ago to have Sheppard’s voice recorded, and he plans to stick with that recording now that Sheppard has passed away.

“I grew up a Yankee fan and he was the voice I always heard,” Jeter said. “There were a few times sprinkled in and out when he wasn’t there and it just didn’t sound right. I had the idea to record his voice and to always use it.

This seems like one of the days Sheppard would have been proud of the Yankees. They went into the all-star break with the best record in baseball, and as always, Jeter was able to explain why. It was the same explanation he’s been giving for years.

“Any team that wins, it’s their rotation that carries them,” Jeter said. “That’s the bottom line. I know people get tired of hearing it, but it’s the truth. Offense can only carry you so far, but if you have a great pitching staff, you’re going to have an opportunity to win every day. They’re the reason we’re in the position that we are.”

Here’s Jeter pregame talking about Sheppard.

Yankees Mariners Baseball• Joe Girardi said he expected far more people on tonight’s chartered flight to Los Angeles — for the Yankees all-stars and their families — than on the chartered flight back to New York. “It’s a pretty big plane we got,” Girardi said. The Yankees and Mariners are sharing the all-star flight, so that group was cut by at least one when Cliff Lee was traded.

• CC Sabathia’s eight-game winning streak is the longest of his career. “I feel like I’ve got a good idea where the ball’s going,” he said. “I’m just trying to pound the strike zone. These guys have been scoring a lot of runs when I’ve been pitching, and playing good defense. It helps you relax.”

• Mark Teixeira is really hitting well lately, including four hits today, but Girardi and Teixeira both said a break will be good. “I think it’s a good time for him,” Girardi said. “He played every game of these 13 in a row. Really didn’t have any time off. He didn’t DH. I think these four days will serve him well.”

• Girardi’s message to the team heading into the all-star break: “I told all the guys, enjoy the break, you’ve earned it,” Girardi said.

• Here’s how the final all-star replacements worked: Trevor Cahill started against the Angels today. When he threw the first pitch in the top of the first inning, he was replaced by Girardi’s top choice, Jered Weaver. When Weaver then threw his first pitch in the bottom of the first inning, he was replaced by Andrew Bailey. Justin Verlander replaced CC Sabathia.

• Girardi said he didn’t want to announce who he plans to use as his closer on Tuesday. He’s not allowed to announce who his starter will be.

• Donnie Collins has good stuff about Jesus Montero’s very weird day of Cliff Lee trade rumors. He also notes that Eduardo Nunez was a late scratch from today’s Scranton/Wilkes-Barre lineup.

• Not all of the non-all-stars are on the flight back to New York. A lot are flying on their own to go home or go on vacation. Colin Curtis is staying in Seattle, where his family lives.

    That’s a great tribute by Jeter……I’ll have to tape that.

  2. Trevor July 11th, 2010 at 9:19 pm

    Texas swept at home by the worse team in baseball.

  3. CompassRosy July 11th, 2010 at 9:23 pm

    Yank fans ~

    Congrats on the win today (and the series win). I sure would have like to have seen my guys play a bit cleaner today, especially in that first inning – if Hyphen gets through it unscathed, you just never know.

    I’m looking forward to the second half, albeit with a different lens than I did going into the season. Now it’s all about development of Smoak, Saunders, fixing the pen and figuring out who will be replacing Lee in the rotation (if Bedard can’t), etc.

    I’ll stop back by later this month…
    I’m thinking I might see a few hearty “Go Mariners!” cheers ’round about July 22-25 ;)

  4. SMK July 11th, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    At this rate, it might be easier to keep track of who is not an All-Star.

  5. El Predicto July 11th, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    Are you all hearing this crazy trade talk about us getting Ted Lilly again ?…Say it ain’t so !

  6. DaSaint007 July 11th, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    Luis,

    Thanks for the well wishes. But, I can not be at all concerned about facing Texas at any time. Sorry.

  7. m July 11th, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    Is there a Gameday for the Futures game?

  8. Trevor July 11th, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    Rosy, beat the hell out of boston next week.

  9. Trevor July 11th, 2010 at 9:30 pm

    Futures Gameday

    http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/gameday.....de=gameday

  10. ron July 11th, 2010 at 9:31 pm

    We do need vaz now & i agree vaz would probably not get a bat & a pen arm but something would have too be done with a starter if we got lee.

    Some rumors said hughes too the pen,other rumors said a vaz or burnett trade,most likely vaz if one were too go.

    Imo it would be a bad idea too put hughes in the pen so soon.
    If we got lee I would trade vaz for a nice bat,maybe vaz & granderson for an outfielder & pen arm.

  11. m July 11th, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    I hope the Lilly talk is just the rumor mill.

    We don’t need another starter. We don’t even need to trade for a setup guy. Just be judicious and have a shorter leash with the relievers.

    Unless Javy brings back a cheap impact player under our control for years to come, it’s not worth it.

  12. m July 11th, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    Trevor,

    Thanks for that. Had the hardest time finding it, only live thing I saw was a celebrity softball game.

  13. Betsy - Hughes rules (pleading the Fifth) July 11th, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    I think the Futures Game is over now………..good day for the Yanks.

  14. luis July 11th, 2010 at 9:37 pm

    dasaint
    lee two times and cj wilson another one doesn’t concern you??, do you really think we can overcome them in a five games series??, i think we have the upper hand in a seven game series but in a five one….. well not that sure

  15. rb July 11th, 2010 at 9:38 pm

    I heard the Mets were interested in Lilly, not the Yanks.

  16. Bronx Jeers July 11th, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    “The Yankees and Mariners are sharing the all-star flight,….”

    So that’s a plane full of Yankees and Ichiro. How awkward.

  17. luis July 11th, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    m,
    the only sp pitcher they were willing to trade for was lee, because he would put our team on a diferent dimension. I think we have a very good rotation as it is, but if you wnat to make it better i dont think lilly is the answer, so i think those rumors are pretty much nonsense

  18. Jeremy July 11th, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    Wouldn’t the Yankees face a team from the central in the playoffs if things remained the same. Or would we face a team from the West ?

    hypothetical.

  19. m July 11th, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    luis,

    I went to sleep thinking it was a done deal, but by the time I woke up it was off the table. Talk about a bad dream. :mad:

  20. jvcelt July 11th, 2010 at 9:48 pm

    if the yanks finished with the best record, and tampa or boston won the wild card, we would play the winner of either the central or west who finished with the poorer record….

  21. m July 11th, 2010 at 9:50 pm

    Purely hypothetical of course, but who would you guys prefer to meet in the playoffs? Chicago, Detroit or Twins?

  22. SMK July 11th, 2010 at 9:51 pm

    The AL Central and West leaders (the White Sox & Rangers) are separated by a half game.

    It’s way too early to predict how it’s all going to shake out.

  23. Elliot July 11th, 2010 at 9:51 pm

    The players are no way near as crazy as their fans. They’re already funning around with each other, I’ll bet.

    CC, since you know where the ball goes please pull Joba aside, as the ace of the team, and show/tell him where to locate the ball.

    Phil makes the starting rotation and the ASG, Joba lose out to both and has to be sad.

  24. luis July 11th, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    m,
    To tell you the truth i had mixed feelings about the trade, for one i really want montero to play for the yankees eventually. I’m the type of fan that wants homegrown heroes to cheer for. On the other hand we have lee that would have put us on the path of another title, i would have done it only to avoid lee landing in tampa or minesota

  25. ron July 11th, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    I think cashman & co were so ticked off judging from their statements because lee would of solved a lot of problems & we have to regroup.

    I honestly believe if we got lee we trade vaz for something or vaz + someone else like granderson or a prospect or two for a bat & a pen arm.

  26. Bret the Hitman July 11th, 2010 at 9:54 pm

    The only reason I can think of the Yankees attempting to acquire Ted Lilly is if they had a deal lined up for Vazquez before the Lee trade fell through and now the team wanting Vazquez has stepped up efforts to get Javy in the aftermath. If for, instance, the Yankees have an opportunity to acquire Jason Werth for Javy Vazquez would they do it and replace him with Ted Lilly in the rotation?

  27. Jeremy July 11th, 2010 at 9:55 pm

    jvcelt
    Thanks !
    I forgot how it worked.

  28. luis July 11th, 2010 at 9:55 pm

    The twins no doubt about it

  29. m July 11th, 2010 at 9:57 pm

    luis,

    I don’t have the same attachment that a lot of guys (and Rebecca ;) ) have to montero. I figured that if he’s not here to make an impact, then that left us with Romine.

  30. luis July 11th, 2010 at 9:58 pm

    i dont think the yankees want to trade vaz right now

  31. Jeremy July 11th, 2010 at 9:59 pm

    m
    I say the Twins because the Yankees own them in the regular season and postseason. They lack power pitching which is key in the postseason if you want to shut teams down, and I think they have a fear of facing the Yankees after all of the failures against the Yankees.

  32. jennifer July 11th, 2010 at 10:00 pm

    How real are the Rangers? They’ve played a ton of games at home and beefed up their record on NL teams. 50 home games, and went 14-4 in interleague.

  33. luis July 11th, 2010 at 10:01 pm

    m,
    you r right i may be to attached to the kid, but i really want to give him a chance, besides i dont want to go back to the globetrotters type of teams we had in the past ( 80′s and early 00′s) with multiple allstars but no heart

  34. pat July 11th, 2010 at 10:01 pm

    “So that’s a plane full of Yankees and Ichiro. How awkward.”

    Yankees invited Kazmir to fly with them when he made his first all-star game and he called his firends and said you’ll never believe where I am and who I’m with.

  35. UnKnown July 11th, 2010 at 10:01 pm

    Got a question about Swisher’s appearance tomorrow night. I am assuming that his power side is left handed then? and He choose Pena to throw to him. But doesn’t Pena throw BP left handed?? So when Pena is throwing bp to swisher during the reg. season isn’t he hitting from the Right Side? Do I have this all wrong or what?

  36. STL Yankee July 11th, 2010 at 10:01 pm

    Cardinals fans were all hyped up Friday about the Yankees/Mariners Cliff Lee trade, because they covet Javier badly. I kept telling them, it wasn’t going to happen, and that Yankees were being used to pry Smoak from the Mariners. I was argued down that wasn’t the case,

    We know how that turned out right?

  37. Bret the Hitman July 11th, 2010 at 10:02 pm

    luis July 11th, 2010 at 9:58 pm
    i dont think the yankees want to trade vaz right now

    ***********

    Maybe not but you never know what teams are offering. I’m sure when the Lee rumors were hot, Cashman’s phone was lighting up for Javy.

    If the Yankees, for instance, traded Javy for Werth and plan on resigning Werth before he becomes a free agent they protect their picks, bolster the lineup something fierce and keep the rotation stable by acquiring Lilly in place of Javy. Lilly is more than capable of holding the 4th spot in the rotation.

  38. Dark Dante July 11th, 2010 at 10:05 pm

    Yankees should make The Mariners hitch hike down to Los Angeles after they screwed us on Friday.

  39. luis July 11th, 2010 at 10:09 pm

    Bret the Hitman July 11th, 2010 at 10:02 pm
    if we can get werth for javy, i’m on that boat as well, b ut i think is unlikely. When the trade for lee was in full force that idea was floated around but i think the phillies weren’t that interested, at least that is what i read then

  40. pat July 11th, 2010 at 10:09 pm

    ” But doesn’t Pena throw BP left handed?? ”

    I thought Pena throws righty BP and K. Long throws lefty but I could be wrong.

  41. ron July 11th, 2010 at 10:13 pm

    Can we please substitute lilly’s name with someone else?
    I don’t see cashman downgrading the rotation with another bigger question mark,that is why he targeted lee.

  42. MTU (aka GBURL) July 11th, 2010 at 10:14 pm

    Bret-

    It will be interesting to see what Cash comes up with.

    Several teams have all but announced they are open for buisness.

    I think the Yankees see an obvious answer to their eigth inning woes but it means weighing options and value, and making adjustments.

  43. rb July 11th, 2010 at 10:19 pm

    I really don’t believe the Yankees have any interest in Lilly. It’s just noise.

  44. Dassit July 11th, 2010 at 10:24 pm

    Jennifer, you ask how real are the Rangers… still too early to tell with that team. They have a very good chance to beat out the Angels, the trouble is they play in really tough heat throughout the rest of the summer, and that just saps the players.

    Adding Lee was a big plus for them, but no one holds up great in that kind of heat.

    Getting away from home might not hurt them as much as other teams.

    I still think it will tighten out West with the Angels and Rangers, but the Angels just don’t look quite as good.

  45. Bro and Evan July 11th, 2010 at 10:24 pm

    Would not want to face the Tigers… Damon, Coke, and A-Jax in the postseason will be very dangerous. Chi Sox power bullpen and rotation is scary too.

    Give me the Twinkies. We always beat them.

    ********

    I read the same thing.

    However, the Phillies had some leverage at the time because when it seemed imminent the Yankees were adding Cliff Lee, the Yankees were in a situation where they would be forced to move Javy in the aftermath.

    Now that the Yankees aren’t pressed to move Javy, teams interested must do more to reach out to the Yankees and express interest. They have to be more aggressive and can’t sit back and wait.

    It’s possible the Phillies were secretly coveting Javy and view him as the missing link in their rotation that will help them reach the NLCS again. During the Lee rumors, perhaps they were one of the teams who lit up Cashman’s phone but played it cool and acted reluctant to move Werth for him.

    Now that Javy is someone the Yankees would have to keep unless they make another trade, the Phillies are forced to reveal just how hard they’re willing to push to get Javy. So maybe they called back and have offered Werth. Since Werth for Lilly doesn’t really satisfy the Cubs, they have to turn to Vazquez who’s probably more of a top rotation guy in the NL East than Lilly anyways.

    Additionally, if they plan to sign him as a free agent after the season regardless, they might be highly motivated to bring him in for a playoff run and lock him up as part of their long term plan without forfeiting the picks.

  47. Whale July 11th, 2010 at 10:31 pm

    Lots of travel for Mr. Lee latley

    Flew to NY/Detroit last week on a road trip.
    Flew back to Seattle for 3 days
    Flew to Texas for 2 days
    Will fly to Anahiem tonight for 2 days
    then fly to Boston for 3 days
    then to Detroit again for 3
    then back to Texas

    **********

    The interesting thing about their interest in Lilly is the potential for the deal to expand to include another member of the Cubs who the Yankees likely covet – Carlos Marmol.

    So even if he Yankees suffer a slight downgrade in the bottom of their rotation from Javy to Lilly, they could add Werth to the offense and Marmol to the pen, trading nothing more than minor league surplus that will not impact the Yankees this season. Werth could be a bat the Yankees want long term and Marmol is a young closer who fits the long term plans as well as he helps repair the current mess in the pen.

    Trade Vazquez to the Phillies for Jose Contreras

  51. damon (think 28) July 11th, 2010 at 10:34 pm

    MLBTR says CWS might go for Oswalt,. Oswalt has specifically said 7-9-2010, that he would not accept a trade to CWS or Tigers. What part of no don’t they understand?

    The only time Contreas will see the stripes again, is in his dreams!

  54. luis July 11th, 2010 at 10:37 pm

    You know Brett??

    You are making a lot of sense…. but lets imagine the deal goes through, if you keep werth it means there is one outfielder that you have to get rid off. Who would it be??. If you only rent werth for two months you get to more picks in next year’s draft that would compensate the ones we’ll loose for signing lee, don’t you think that’s a better way to go?? considering that next year’s draft is supposed to be the ubberdraft??

  55. Bret the Hitman July 11th, 2010 at 10:40 pm

    Luis,

    I think Werth would play RF against righties and LF against lefties with Gardner in CF in place of Granderson. Swisher would DH against righties and play RF against lefties. Granderson could pinch hit for Gardner late in games where a lefty starts.

  56. Trevor July 11th, 2010 at 10:40 pm

    White Sox are 24-5 since June 9th.

    Trade Vazquez to the Phillies for Jose Contreras

    Sure!!! Why don’t you apply for the yankees GM position???
    man that’s dumb

  58. Bret the Hitman July 11th, 2010 at 10:43 pm

    Luis,

    I think Werth is the way to go since he’s in his prime and makes the offense complete. The Yankees would not have to worry about a second half implosion from Javy and getting in a situation where they can’t risk offering arbitration. Plus they’d get picks for Lilly since Lilly is a Type A. They could use those picks since Cliff Lee will be a Yankee and Pettitte may retire. This way the Yankees can fit both Lee and Werth in the budget.

  59. luis July 11th, 2010 at 10:48 pm

    Brett,

    Wow!!, that’s one expensive bench player. I think it could work for this season, what about the future?. I think if you keep werth you’ll have to deal granderson, i’ll bet he is not going to be very happy with his new role. Plus if you want to sign Lee you’ll loose your picks, putting aside any financial considerations…

  60. luis July 11th, 2010 at 10:52 pm

    Brett,

    Don’t you think Lilly it’s an even riskier FA to offer arbitration??

  61. Bret the Hitman July 11th, 2010 at 10:53 pm

    Luis,

    Granderson can’t hit lefties so he’d have to sit against tough lefties and pinch hit for Gardner. If he starts to outhit Gardner vs. lefties then Gardner becomes the bench player in those tougher matchups.

    I don’t view Werth, Swisher, Granderson or Gardner as bench players since there are four of them rotating in 3 OF spots and DH.

    If you have Lilly as a Type A and you let him go, you’ll get back the picks you lose by signing Lee.

  62. Haiku-man July 11th, 2010 at 10:54 pm

    Andy said he’d walk away when he had nothing left, that’s not this year, he’s CY material, he won’t go yet, betcha!

  63. Bret the Hitman July 11th, 2010 at 10:55 pm

    Luis,

    I think since Lilly is a lefty, he’s guaranteed to get a long term contract so he’s less of a risk to accept arbitration.

  64. luis July 11th, 2010 at 11:02 pm

    Brett,

    It might work as long as Pettite retires….By the way what do you think jeter’s deal is going to look like, my guess right now three years 15mil

  65. Bret the Hitman July 11th, 2010 at 11:13 pm

    Luis,

    If Pettitte is planning to retire, I suspect the Yankees know and will plan accordingly. I thought it was telling that they moved pre-emptively to acquire Lee. Now there’s no guarantee Lee can be signed. If the Yankees are stuck with Pettitte on a year-to-year basis instead of Lee, maybe that’s not such a horrible downgrade considering the value Werth’s bat brings to the lineup every day.

    Check out this lineup (vs. righties):

    Brett Gardner-lf
    Derek Jeter-ss
    Mark Teixeira-1b
    Alex Rodriguez-3b
    Robinson Cano-2b
    Jason Werth-rf
    Jorge Posada-c
    Nick Swisher-dh
    Curtis Granderson-cf

    Without a guarantee on Lee, the Yankees will have to mash their way in the post season. With this lineup, they can do that.

    I think Jeter will get 4 years minimum, 18 mil per.

  66. luis July 11th, 2010 at 11:14 pm

    good night guys, very interesting posts Brett, hope to repeat it

  67. luis July 11th, 2010 at 11:20 pm

    Brett,

    That’s one mean mashing machine you put up there. I wasn’t to happy about trading javy and then getting Lilly, but if it plays out the way you describe we might have a team for the ages. But i still think Lee has to be our number one target in the offseason. I’m concern about the way jete is looking, thats why i think four years might be too much

  68. luis July 11th, 2010 at 11:20 pm

    Well well seems a beat writer on the Seattle Times did their research on newly traded Josh Luekes in the Cliff Lee trade, on google. The paper is slamming The Mariners executives for trading a guy who allegedly raped his girlfriend.

    What is absent in all these discussions is the potential price tag for Ted Lilly. What are you planning to give up to make this deal a reality? Who do you add to it in order to wrest Marmol away from the Cubbies? Marmol is arguably the most valuable commodity on that team. the price of acquiring him will be astronomical.

    The Yanks have the best record in baseball folks… they don’t need to do anything drastic, no matter how good Werth might look hitting in the No. 6 spot.

    Ted Lilly is a fine pitcher but we don’t need him

    On a side note, and please excuse me for the long blog, and by no means do I want to jinx Pettitte and Yanks (he’s pitching great now that he’s again utilizing his change-up more), but I’d like to present several reasons why it would be great for Pettitte to continue past this year. I get the feeling this really might be his last year, and it’s quite understandable why he wants to get home to his family. However……

    Reasons to play at least 1 and perhaps 2 more years:

    1. His Family –From what I understand is his family was completely behind him pitching this year. There are lots of potential events (I’ll get to them in list) that might take place as a Yankee the next 1-2 years including him increasing his Hall resume like winning number 250, 260….. I can imagine that his kids and family would love to be part of such history.

    2. His Yankee Family –Next year Jeter should become the first Yankee to ever reach 3000 career hits, Mariano could reach his 600th save, and Jorge will catch his 1600th game (only 22 catchers have done so). Wouldn’t it be great to be in uniform for this?
