    So close!!!! :x

    At least I had the DH in the right spot. LOL

  2. justinxdance27 July 21st, 2010 at 10:51 am

    pretty sure nobody got this one

  3. Blogger Formerly Known As Dan July 21st, 2010 at 10:51 am

    It is easy to say what you would do with the ball because most have zero chance and some have an extremely small chance to get it.

    Given the opportunity, most would probably make the logical choice for their family, themselves and others

    Pat-

    Shame on you for presenting everyone on the board with a “moral dilemma” this early in the morning.

    Don’t you realize that some folks haven’t even had their first cup of cofffee yet ? :)

    That Joe Girardi is a sneaky one ;)

  6. Lisa July 21st, 2010 at 10:54 am

    Why does Posada have to sit? I understand why he isn’t catching but why not DH? He had Monday off. He had the All-Star break off. After the 5 spot, Miranda, Granderson and Cervelli concern me. Piniero has been pitching pretty well lately too.

  7. MTU July 21st, 2010 at 10:56 am

    I just thought you might want to help Randy out. Being bud’s and all.

    According to you it seems like he may be beyond salvaging though.

  8. Chip July 21st, 2010 at 10:56 am

    Getting back to the Hoffmann thing, just an FYI he’s batting: .309, .367 OBP, .805 OPS.

    Because with only two catchers on the roster you can’t have Posada at DH. If Cervelli gets hurt and Jorge has to go behind the plate it would mean that the pitcher would have to hit.

    If you really were feeling in a generous mood you could pay for Randy to get lessons on which end of the golf club is for what, and exactly what to do with one.

    Randy’s a nice guy, but, not very bright. He still takes a shotgun to go shooting golf. He’s especially fond of golf eggs.

  16. Guy Incognito July 21st, 2010 at 11:01 am

    Running Miranda out there AGAIN? He looked terrible last night and obviously has difficulty with ML pitching. Like some of the bullpen stiffs, anyone would be an improvement over Miranda at this point. He provides nothing other than the possibility of power (more often than not, merely “possibility” is the outcome).

    I don’t care what the splits are on Thames, play him over Miranda every time. He at least can look like a professional hitter at times. Granderson can’t hit a Jugs machine lefty or righty and he’s essentially an everyday player.

  17. Lisa July 21st, 2010 at 11:01 am

    Chip, you are right! I forgot we only have two catchers on the roster. Thanks! Still don’t like the line-up! Hope they surprise me!

    Either Juan Miranda starts to show his worth as a hitter or he’s part of a package. His 4-year contract runs out after this year. His value as a 1st baseman is virtually useless with Teixeira around.

    Who are you to assume what people that you’ve never met would do? Just because that’s what you would do doesn’t mean everyone would. Sal Durante, who caught Maris’ #61 home run ball was going to give him the baseball until Maris told him not to be stupid…to sell the baseball and use it as a down payment on a house. So, not everyone thinks like you.

    The interesting thing about giving the ball back to A-Rod is that he claims no ownership of the ball. The person catching the ball owns the ball. If you would give your $100,000 ball away, you need an economics class.

    7/20 14:38: Brian Cashman tells Jim Bowden of XM 175 that he doesn’t think the Yankees will be aggressive in the starting market. Cliff Lee was an exception.

    The Yankee’s priority will bullpen more than the bench, but an acquisition of the bench is more likely due to player cost.

    7/20 01:32: Despite a groin injury to starting pitcher Andy Pettitte, that will keep him out of the rotation for 4-5 weeks, the New York Yankees will not pursue a starting pitcher. Rather, the team will continue to focus in on improving their bench and possibly their bullpen.

    “I’m not looking for starting pitching,” GM Brian Cashman said. “I don’t feel compelled. This is why we have Sergio Mitre.”

    Mitre will come off the disabled list and will start on Saturday versus the Kansas City Royals in Pettite’s place.

    If Cashman wanted to add another starter, Brian Costello of the New York Post says the price is too high for pitchers such as Roy Oswalt or Dan Haren. Mitre is more appealing to the Yankees because he’s already within the organization and won’t cost the team prospects or additional money.

    “Mitre’s role was long man and spot starter, and now we need a spot starter,” Cashman said.

    “You get a guy like Mitre and he gets hot and you can ride him for those six starts,” former Blue Jays GM and ESPN analyst J.P. Ricciardi said. “I’m sure the Yankees are out looking at every possible thing they can. The one great thing about the Yankees is they don’t have to worry about the price for the most part.

    “So I’m sure they’re looking at every possible starting pitcher that will be available. They’re doing their due diligence. I think Cash will probably, and this is just an educated guess on my part, he’ll ride whatever he’s got in-house.”

    Costello adds that the Yankees could be looking at Blue Jays’ Kevin Gregg and Scott Downs along with Royals’ reliever Joakim Soria, but the price is too high right now.

    For as terrible a first 2 1/2 months he had in Scranton if left alone I’d bet Montero’s yearend slash line looks something like;

    .300/21HRs/80rbis/.350obp/.520slg….

    If I were fortunate enough to catch Alex’s milestone HR, I’d ask him how much the ball was worth to him and take it from there. If he says five grand, we’ve got a problem. LOL!

  54. Guy Incognito July 21st, 2010 at 11:19 am

    @IrreverentDiscourse

    Intuitively, I understand the need for Miranda to learn “on the job,” so to speak. But I also understand the highly competitive nature of the AL East. And especially in a down cycle for the Yankee pitching staff, having a guy learning on the job isn’t going to cut it. I’d rather have a singles hitter with a little speed who can get on base at a .250 clip than a guy with home run potential, but who needs to be ML-seasoned before he can reach it.

  55. LGY July 21st, 2010 at 11:20 am

    The judge reduced the amount the jury awarded the woman in the McDonald’s case to less than a million (forgot how much).

    McDonald’s and her ended up settling though so they didn’t have to go through the appeals process. Probably for as much as 500 grand.

  56. Doreen July 21st, 2010 at 11:20 am

    It’s not about economics. It’s about what I feel right about doing. That ball means more to ARod than it ever could to me. If he offered money, I would not turn it down. But I wouldn’t ask for money.

  66. champ809 July 21st, 2010 at 11:25 am

    read this today

    On Tuesday afternoon, NYBD contributor Paul Catalano wrote the following in his article about the Yankees exploring Ben Sheets as a trade acquisition.

    “The Royals aren’t trading Joakim Soria. Forget it.”

    After reading that quote, I decided to contact my main Yankees source down in Tampa to clarify the situation. He told me the following. “Cashman is continuing talks with KC management to determine what would be an agreeable package in return for Soria. If ”Cash” can come up with a package that satisfies Kansas City’s needs, then Soria will be traded.”
    When I asked him what the Yankees thoughts were on Soria, he told me the following. ”The Yankees have has interest in the guy for a while now, going back at least two years. They view him as the best reliever outside of Mariano in the game. I don’t think they would have any problem including Montero in a package for him, just like when they offered him for Cliffy. That’s how much they value the guy.”
    He added, “I think that the Yanks are going to continue talks with KC all the way to the deadline. If they got him, they would insert him immediately as the 8th inning set up man, with Joba moving down to become the 7th inning man.”
    One thing that could become problematic in acquiring Soria is KC requesting any team to pick up the remaining salary on Jose Guillen’s contract. Although Guillen is having a solid year (.278/15/54) he is on the last year of a 3 year/$36 million dollar deal. It doesn’t sound like the Yanks would be interested in something like that.
    Mike Silva adds:
    We have been talking about Soria for three days, including an appearance on 610 AM in Kansas City. It’s pretty clear that Soria is available, will be expensive prospect wise, but really is perfect for the Yankees. Why not lock down the eighth inning this year and have the heir apparent to Mariano signed through 2014? This might even help Joba as he could be pushed into lower leverage situations. Maybe Soria’s presence gives him the breathing room to develop into the pitcher his talent promises. This is just too good an opportunity for Brian Cashman to pass up. I will go as far to say I wouldn’t allow Montero stand in the way of acquiring Soria.

    That is fair. I have no idea what your current situation is and maybe you wouldn’t need the money. However, I could turn that money into a much earlier retirement (opportunity cost, thus the situation is a matter of economics) I’m not saying anyone is wrong. But I will say I’m right.

    Piniero has been pitching very well lately, and he shut down the Yankees early this year. Vazquez will need to pitch well.

    On the trade front, every name I have seen possibly associated with the Yankees have been connected with a number of other teams as well. Bullpen and right handed hitting seems to be the need de jure. A move will likely be made and most will think it was an overpayment. At least that is my guess.

  88. GreenBeret7 July 21st, 2010 at 11:35 am

    Nobody’s going to trade for David Adams until he shows that he can play and move as well as he did before the leg injury. Any trades for a middle infielder other than Eduardo Nunez will have to include Luis Nunez and Corbin Joseph along with a young pitcher.

  89. Doreen July 21st, 2010 at 11:35 am

    Chances are I’d be at this game with my husband, and chances are he’d catch the ball, not me, so I think my husband would be more likely to think more in terms of a monetary trade.

    But the thing is, ARod hit this ball. I (or the person catching it) would just happen to be sitting where it was hit. I guess you could look at it like a lottery – a once in a lifetime opportunity – like Willy Wonka’s golden ticket. I don’t think it’s an unreasonable stance.

    I just don’t want to be called stupid because I wouldn’t think of money first.

    $100,000 is nice, for sure. But I’d think more in terms of a non-monetary trade. For instance, donating tickets or memorabilia to a charity auction I know of. But here’s the thing: I’d never under ordinary circumstances get to meet Alex Rodriguez. And to me, that’s a good trade – he gets the ball, I get to meet him.

    Pretty good writeup on Nova from last night….

    Ivan The Great fires again
    July 21st, 2010Goto commentsLeave a comment
    A few starts ago, I looked up at the PNC Field radar gun and saw a number that I had never seen before after an Ivan Nova fastball.

    97.

    I thought, “Just an anomaly.” He dialed one up, threw it as hard as he could, and that’s what he got.

    But I started watching more regularly from that point. And guess what: In his recent starts, Ivan Nova has been throwing hard. And, it seems, he’s throwing harder every start.

    In the first inning last night, he was consistently hitting 96-97, and for the game, he sat in the 93-95 range pretty much throughout. That’s plenty good enough, of course, for a young right-handed starter who is opening plenty of eyes with a strong season that has been, for some reason, all too quiet.

    Some pitchers can throw that hard and don’t really want to. It compromises location, and at this level, location is just about everything.

    But Ivan Nova seemed pretty proud of all the 96s and 97s last night.

    “I know I can throw hard in good location,” Nova told me. “If I’m throwing it hard, then I’m throwing it in there hard. But I’m not sacrificing my location to do it.”

    The key is not falling in love with the radar gun and continuing to use secondary pitches, and last night, in his eight-inning masterpiece against Gwinnett in which he allowed one run on five hits, striking out six without a walk, he did that beautifully.

    Catcher Jesus Montero said Nova was doing everything right with his off-speed stuff. Change-ups to right-handed hitters. Back-door curves to lefties. Pounding the fastball into the mitt. Nova said his slider, which is getting much better as the season progresses, has been a difference-making pitch for him, too.

    “He was amazing,” Montero said. “I was thinking perfect game. … I was really impressed with him today.”

    Nova is 8-2 on the season now. His ERA is just barely above 3.00. He has been, far and away, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s most dominant starter this season, and it wouldn’t be a shock to see the likes of Baseball America talking about him next year like a much bigger prospect than he was considered to be in 2010.

    Everyone talks about Brackman and Banuelos when they talk about pitching prospects in this organization. I’d be surprised if they’re going to be better than Ivan Nova, though.

    “I’ve been working on a couple of things, and I think I’m getting it,” Nova said. “I’m feeling much more comfortable now.

    If the Royals demand the Yankees surrender Montero in a deal for Soria, I’d try to expand the trade to include DeJesus. I’d be willing to absorb Jose Guillen’s contract if they backed off Montero. Jesus Montero has really boosted his trade value at the perfect time. Greinke is a pipe dream though. He’s the face of their franchise and they have a roster full of player contracts they can easily move ahead of his.

    Soria would be great but montero has too fetch more than a relief pitcher that gives you 70 innings a year.Now if our scouts are absolutely convinced montero will not catch in the majors then maybe but i would think you have too fetch a young pitcher or position player in return.

    If i am cash i work on a huge deal.A deal can be done.

    Nobody thought it was possible for soria too get traded because he was cheap & under team controll for years but anything is possible especially if salary relief is part of a deal.

After taxes there’d be $70,000 left, but I d always feel bought even if he offered it to me. I’d like a tour of the clubhouse, to meet the players and to get to watch batting practice from the field and to watch a game from behind home plate. That’s it.

    Yes, it would be great to have someone as good as Soria to nail down the later innings and hand the game off to Mo, but I believe you find someone like that within the Yankees system before giving up a premium player at a trade deadline.

  147. Joe from Long Island July 21st, 2010 at 12:01 pm

    I keep hearing about the need for salary relief among most major league clubs, and how finances will be dictating more and more player moves.

    KC seems to be the type of team that fits that billing. If the Yanks were willing to take on Cliff Lee’s remaining 2010 salary, to help ensure they win, then taking on Jose Guillen’s remaining contract – as a condition to get Soria at a reasonable cost in terms of talent – should seem equally acceptable to the Yanks.

    At least, that’s my logic.

  148. jesusmonterofordh July 21st, 2010 at 12:01 pm

    no way you trade a bat of jesus value for a reliever.

    he no guartnee to do well in a setup role.

    i am also a big fan of soria too

  153. Macfan July 21st, 2010 at 12:03 pm

    Brian Cashman would be on some serious dope to trade Montero for a reliever

    This is the kind of stuff the Yankees might have done in the foolish days of quick fixes.

    I can’t believe there is anyone here that would give up Montero for a relief pitcher

    Wow.

  154. Apple byte July 21st, 2010 at 12:03 pm

    Ivan Nova just may be the internal option Cashman needs until Andy returns and Burnett shows his head is on straight. If so, the league doesn’t know him yet and Mitre can return to the bullpen as the long man.

    Just a thought ……….

  155. Yanksgal07 July 21st, 2010 at 12:03 pm

    Alex hit #500 on a Saturday, the first inning against Kyle Davies ..who will be pitching again this Saturday. I was at that game. I’m actually hoping he hits it on Thursday when I will be at the game but it would be cool if he hit it against Davies again … :) (I guess not that cool for Davis tho’..lol)

    Go Yankees 2010 !!!

  156. Mike in Chicago July 21st, 2010 at 12:04 pm

    I’m sorry, what I meant to say was, IMHO, I don’t think it makes sense to give up someone like Montero, who could be a premium POSITION player, for a reliever like Soria.

  169. Bret The Hitman July 21st, 2010 at 12:18 pm

    Joe from LI,

    Cliff Lee and Joakim Soria is better than just Cliff Lee, right?

    So it’s a good thing that trade “fell through”, correct?

    ;)

    Now for the interesting part.

    I keep saying that Greinke is their franchise guy and they must keep him and build around him while cutting costs because they’re leaking money terribly, as you stated.

    Greinke’s salary doubles next season but they must keep him an account for his raise.

    That’s a problem for KC but they can solve it by using Soria as a vessel to dump an additional contract and further slash payroll – either Guillen or DeJesus.

    I think they prefer to use Soria to dump Guillen.

    They know the Yankees can finance Guillen because the Yanks were willing to take on Lee’s salary, right?

    But the Yankees “source” is leaking that they’re unwilling to take on Guillen’s salary if the Royals try to dump him with Soria, right?

    Are the Yankees positioning themselves to expand the deal to include David DeJesus instead?

    We have plenty of minor league arms to fill out that deal for KC and possibly Joba.

  170. BIG AL July 21st, 2010 at 12:27 pm

    Offer KC lower level prospects, and Joba. Keep our top prospects, then consider taking Guillen’s contract. Joba may do much better in a situation that is not as high profile as NY.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  232. unexplained infertility August 27th, 2014 at 12:51 am

    Women who have endometriosis, tubal obstruction, uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts can become pregnant. If you are experiencing fertility problems—you will be stressed—the stress leads to physical problems that cause infertility—which causes more stress—which leads to more infertility—and so on and so on. It has been found that acupuncture and infertility work best together when acupuncture is done after conventional methods of treatment have been tried, or in conjunction with these treatment. Benefits from using natural methods of overcoming infertility included an improved sex life, more energy, a calmer and happier mood, becoming pregnant quicker, giving birth with little pain, more energy and hormonal disorders were eliminated. IVF stands for In Vitro Fertilization, is a protocol of stimulating multiple follicles and eggs in the ovaries and take them out to lab and fertilizing them with her partner’s sperm, and then transferring the embryo back to her uterus.
