Obit Steinbrenner Baseball

George Steinbrenner was laid to rest Saturday in Trinity, Fla. in a private ceremony near Tampa. The former Yankee owner passed away Tuesday at 80.

About 40 people were in attendance, according to this story by the Associated Press. That group included Yankee officials, although they were unidentified (aside family members; Hank Steinbrenner is pictured).

The family has still yet to announce details for a public memorial.

    For those that follow the kids’ development:

    It’s not much, but, here’s about 8 minutes of video on Andrew Brackman if you haven’t seen him. Below his clips are almost 2 minutes of Adam Warren.

    good morning GB
    I will take a look at it later, thanks

  4. Haiku-man July 18th, 2010 at 8:03 am

    Every team in baseball should experience an owner who truly loves their team as much as Mr Steinbrenner did his Yankees, and put their money were their mouth is.
    Yankees fan were spoiled to expect the best on their team, and being winniners.Thank you !!

    Bummer of a loss yesterday. I think its best to just move on from the AJ cutting his hand incident. There aren’t a lot of options with him and they need him to pitch well….dragging this out isn’t going to help that.

    Still have an opportunity to take the series today though with Andy on the mound.

    Wasn’t around the past couple of days much but skimmed through some of the comments. You people that are being critical of Jeter and are worried to death about his next contract do realize that he probably pays for himself with the revenue he generates right? He’s the face of baseball, and likely the biggest and most respected star in the sport. Not to mention all he has done for the organization and the fact that he still has a lot left in the tank. He’s in a slump….isn’t the first, and won’t be the last…and even if he is slowing down a bit, he’s still better than the vast majority of SS’s in baseball. Whatever they decide to pay him isn’t going to affect their other business, so why worry about it?

    So….unclench and enjoy this Yankee team a little, they are pretty darn good.

  6. blake July 18th, 2010 at 8:11 am

    Oh, and Rest in Peace George. You were truly one of a kind and will be greatly missed.

  7. GreenBeret7 July 18th, 2010 at 8:14 am

    Enjoy the clips, Kate. I put those up with the hopes of at least having and 4 hours before the idiots attack the game thread.

  8. upstate kate July 18th, 2010 at 8:16 am

    I know Jeet’s slump didn’t begin w/ the death of GMS, but isn’t it possible that has affected him. He and George were very close. You could see how emotional all the players were on Friday. It is really hard to focus on work after the loss of a loved one, why would it be any different for ball players?

  9. upstate kate July 18th, 2010 at 8:17 am

    yes GB, I have given up on reading the blog later on, especially if a game is on. I know I miss some good comments, but it is too discouraging to wade thru all the crap to get to them.

  10. blake July 18th, 2010 at 8:18 am

    “I know Jeet’s slump didn’t begin w/ the death of GMS, but isn’t it possible that has affected him.”

    The last couple games (especially Friday), I think its very possible.

  11. MTU (aka GBURL) July 18th, 2010 at 8:24 am

    Blake-

    You missed all the AJ fun and games.

    It was a witches brew of trash talk, psychobabble, and pure stupidity.

  12. MTU (aka GBURL) July 18th, 2010 at 8:25 am

    Kate -

    I gave up on the game threads quite some time ago.

  13. MTU (aka GBURL) July 18th, 2010 at 8:26 am

    GB-

    Thanks for putting up those clips.

  14. Jete's in decline July 18th, 2010 at 8:27 am

    People think Jeter is in decline and having the worst year of his career in a long time. His at bats are awful as of late, takes one or two pitches for an out.

    Case in point he had 1 hit so far all weekend, Saturday and he’s the leadoff player! We like Jeter
    but he’s under performing. I FOR ONE HOPE CASHMAN OFFERS HIM A FRONT OFFICE JOB, were he is STILL visable to all and allows the Team to get younger at SS.

  15. GreenBeret7 July 18th, 2010 at 8:29 am

    Sure thing, MTU. My pleasure and enjoy.

  16. MTU (aka GBURL) July 18th, 2010 at 8:30 am

    New position. Designated whipping boy. This week it’s AJ and Jeter.

  17. SJ44 July 18th, 2010 at 8:33 am

    Younger isn’t always better. Something many of the children who rant on here after every Yankee loss prove each day. Same goes for ballplayers.

    Ss for AJ? You move on because you have no choice.

    He contract makes him untradeable and they don’t have anybody better to plug in his spot on the roster at this time. You deal with it and move on.

    Headed back to the Stadium today.

    Enjoy the game everybody!

  18. MTU (aka GBURL) July 18th, 2010 at 8:33 am

    It’s just a hunch. But I think the Yankees and Marlins are going to get something done.

    Maybe Ross and Nunez.

  19. upstate kate July 18th, 2010 at 8:33 am

    MTU
    perhaps AJ is trying to take the heat of Joba :)

  20. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos July 18th, 2010 at 8:34 am

    Morning All. :)

    Thanks, GB7, for that link. Only one of the panels was working when I checked it out, so I’ll try again later. Maybe I’ll go direct to the site, try it that way.

    blake -

    Yesterday WAS an awful loss, but, except for AJ’s shenanigans, was the same as all the other times they had awful losses. When the starting pitcher doesn’t have it, no one else seems to, either. It’s like, there are days when if they’re going to lose, they’re REALLY going to lose. Yesterday was one of those days. Plus it was on FOX. FOX and AJ don’t mix. ;)

    I can no longer read the game threads. It is very disturbing to me to see all the Jeter-killing that goes on. As if he was so much uniform stuffing. Believe me, I don’t have my head in the sand – any half-witted person could see he’s in a major slump. But from the stuff that’s written, you’d think he was an 80-year old guy taking up space on infield.

    And I didn’t read everything, just skimming that’s what I got.

    I have no issue with people talking about the fact that he’s in a slump. It’s the giant leap they take after that that gets to me.

    It’s still hard to believe that Mr. Steinbrenner has left this world.

  21. upstate kate July 18th, 2010 at 8:35 am

    SJ
    enjoy the game, what a great series to get to watch in person

  22. MTU (aka GBURL) July 18th, 2010 at 8:36 am

    Kate-

    It goes around and around like some out of control merry go round.

    After losses in here it’s like “The dead zone” and the Zombies come out. :)

  23. upstate kate July 18th, 2010 at 8:38 am

    I think people have unrealistic expectations. Baseball is a game of failure. If you hit .300, that is good, but in actuality it means you fail 7 times out of 10. A team that has a .600 winning % has a good chance of getting to the play offs, but that means losing 4 of 10 games.

  24. MTU (aka GBURL) July 18th, 2010 at 8:40 am

    Kate-

    Don’t try and talk reality. It’s too difficult a concept for some. ;)

  25. blake July 18th, 2010 at 8:41 am

    MTU,

    Thats pretty much all there is anymore unfortunately.

    Doreen,

    The game threads used to be at least OK when the Yankees were winning but now even then they are just ridiculous. If they are winning the game they just move on to AJ, Granderson, Jeter, or the fact that Arod isn’t 5-5 with 3 HR’s that day. Its unfortunate…

  26. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos July 18th, 2010 at 8:42 am

    upstate kate -

    I do think that after the emotions of the night before – from the pre-game memorials to the up-and-down of the game itself, to the dramatic ending – probably led to a let-down for Saturday’s game. At least it’s possible.

  27. blake July 18th, 2010 at 8:42 am

    MTU,

    I think Cashman has a move or two up his sleeve….I don’t know what it’ll be but I think he’ll do something. The Marlins do match up if they can agree on prospects

  28. MTU (aka GBURL) July 18th, 2010 at 8:45 am

    Blake-

    Thank goodness for the mornings. So far we still have that.

    Hope your secret mission to SC to save the teeth of the world was successful.

    Heading for the high country today to begin preparations for the assault of some higher peaks later in the summer.

    Nothing below 10K these days. it’s too hot.

    Enjoy watching Andy outpitch Price. Hope he takes the Rays and their meely-mouthed manager to school. :)

  29. MTU (aka GBURL) July 18th, 2010 at 8:47 am

    Blake-

    As far as a move coming. bank it. Cash isn’t stupid. He sees the problems.

  30. blake July 18th, 2010 at 8:47 am

    MTU,

    Haha, yea its been a success. Enjoy your trip buddy. I’m going out as well…..enjoy the game everyone. Go yanks!

  31. STL Yankee July 18th, 2010 at 8:48 am

    Buck was giddy at the possibility of AJ being hurt and how that would open up the pennant race in the AL. HE SICKENS ME GREATLY, is and under statement.

    You see the Cardinals lost Brad Penny who detached his lateral muscle at bat, and most likely out for the season. Then Kyle Lohse had wrist surgery and in rehab.

    S I guess misery loves company, the Jerk!

  32. upstate kate July 18th, 2010 at 8:50 am

    Buck is easily my least favorite announcer so that doesn’t surprise me

  33. MTU (aka GBURL) July 18th, 2010 at 8:50 am

    The team that has taken “snakebit” to new levels is the Sox.

  34. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos July 18th, 2010 at 8:55 am

    blake -

    Oh, it’s so true. People just not ever satisfied.

    I mistakenly thought there’d be some kind of “afterglow” upon winning the WS last year, but, it’s exactly the opposite. :(

  35. upstate kate July 18th, 2010 at 8:55 am

    which gives them a great excuse for losing

  36. STL Yankee July 18th, 2010 at 8:58 am

    Upstate kate
    Buck got his job because of his father, then fox wanted him for their baseball/football fiasco, making you want to pull your hair out..

  37. MTU (aka GBURL) July 18th, 2010 at 9:01 am

    Kate-

    The Sox have about had all they could lately with the Rangers.

    They are about to embark on a 10 game west coast road trip on of it.

    They have patented catching lightning in a bottle this season.

    Murphy has struck them extremely hard.

  38. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos July 18th, 2010 at 9:01 am

    STL -

    Buck didn’t do yesterday’s game. It was McCarver and Albert (Marv Albert’s son or grandson?), but your point still applies about both Buck and whoever Fox’s announcers are in terms of covering the Yankees. It’s unbearable. Unlistenable. Unwatchable. For a Yankees’ fan.

  39. MTU (aka GBURL) July 18th, 2010 at 9:02 am

    “on top of it”. Typo. sorry.

    That would be bad.

    Usually my dogs walk me. They are in control not the other way around. :)

    Blake, very well said!

  45. Rick July 18th, 2010 at 9:13 am

    The hand problem with A.J. could put him further back in the starting rotation which might do him more good than harm.

  46. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos July 18th, 2010 at 9:13 am

    Sorry -

    I misunderstood; I thought you meant the Yankees game itself. So he was reporting on AJ’s injury while he was broadcasting the Cardinals game.

    Good morning.

    By the time the players come in this morning, the plexiglass sign holder will be re-attached to the door and they will have had AJs locker padded. :wink:

  49. William Buckner July 18th, 2010 at 9:18 am

    Great to see of 2003 Marlin pitchers, Carl Pavano is doing the best. Why can’t the Yankees find a pitcher like that…

  50. Apple byte July 18th, 2010 at 9:19 am

    Cashman has 2 weeks to do any roster upgrades. Rumors will now start flying. The Florida Marlins and K.C. Royals could be in a dealing mode. Cashman could go face to face with his Royals counterpart this week when they come to the Bronx for a 4 game series.

  51. Doreen - GTLU Stuff & Photos July 18th, 2010 at 9:23 am

    pat -

    I think the players (or at least most of them) are having less of a hard time with AJ’s “antics” than the fans.

    Curtis Granderson: “Guys get angry and upset. It’s frustration. That’s all a part of it. If he omes in and apologizes tomorrow, everybody I’m sure is gong to accept it. I hope he’s okay. We want him back in there.”

  52. pat July 18th, 2010 at 9:34 am

    Doreen

    Most won’t even need the apology. They get it.

  53. pat July 18th, 2010 at 9:36 am

    Today’s lineup: Jeter ss, Swisher rf, Teixeira 1b, ARod 3b, Cano 2b, Posada c, Thames dh, Granderson cf, Gardner lf,

  54. dassit July 18th, 2010 at 9:38 am

    Somehow hearing Granderson make that statement, it falls flat. Granderson has been a disappointment this season, poor batting average, little power. Is he going to apologize to the team and the fans for being a cause of some of the frustrations?

    While Melky wasn’t great, I don’t think he would be putting up numbers any worse than Granderson, and he would have cost less. Putting Austin Jackson in might not have been a bad move over trading for Granderson as well.

    I know Javy has been pitching well lately, but I’m not convinced he will hold up over the whole rest of the season.

    I think the starters are getting frustrated because of the poor bull pen. If they allow runs and don’t go deep enough the bullpen could toss it all away. CHoP and Joba seem like an implosion waiting to happen every time they are out there. Marte isn’t the answer either. Robertson has seemed better lately, but you hold your breath on him as well.

  55. Pinstripe4Life July 18th, 2010 at 9:44 am

    Granderson is a bust. Cashman is going to deal him in the off season, and sign Carl Crawford.

  56. STL Yankee July 18th, 2010 at 9:44 am

    Doreen

    Even before the blog or anyone close to the NYY game said why Aj left, he was already saying what a game changer it would be for the AL if Aj lacerated his hand. I was also following the Yankees on computer, and muted him out, with the radio on to hear the game, he makes my stomach turn. It was SURREAL, the blog or the internet said nothing about it at the time he was yapping .

    STL hates the Yankees because they are self entitled egomaniacs to think they deserve the Yankees success and stature, because they have Albert, and jealous of the budget the Yankees have and gives The Yankees an unfair advantage. You’ll find more Baseball bigots here than anywhere that’s a fact.

  57. rj July 18th, 2010 at 9:50 am

    People need to get it through their thick skulls: Granderson will NOT be traded this offseason.

  58. Fran (the original) and OPPC member July 18th, 2010 at 9:58 am

    Nice to come on in the AM and see all the reasonable people posting instead of the unreadable game threads.

    GB,
    Thanks for the minor league links.

    Doreen,
    Kenny Albert is Marv’s son. Sounds a lot like his dad to me.
