Moseley shines early, offense shines late

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jul 29, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

A two-out, seven-run rally in the seventh inning made tonight’s series finale a blowout. It ended as an 11-4 Yankees win that was in such little doubt, Marcus Thames played third base in the ninth inning. But for six innings, it was a close one, and Dustin Moseley allowed one run through six innings for a much-deserved win in his first spot start of the season. Alex Rodriguez led the Yankees with three RBI, but he’s now gone a week without hitting home run No. 600. And in case you’re wondering, Thames had never played third base in his professional career. Not even in rookie ball.

    CHAN HO PARK

    Very good win – taking 3 out 4 from a team that had been playing well, and doing so on the road, is impressive.

    HUGE kudos to Moseley – a really excellent performance.

    Fun series coming up with the Rays – or it will be if we take 2/3.

  3. Carl July 29th, 2010 at 11:07 pm

    Thames made the hard part look easy.

    And he never will again

    If Girardi EVER sends Chan Ho Park in a game again—even if the Yankees are up 56-0—he should immediately be institutionalized.

  6. Rich in NJ July 29th, 2010 at 11:07 pm

    As I said on the previous thread:

    This is start[ed] to remind me of a Torre-esque passive-aggressive personnel deployment designed to get the GM to make a move.

  7. Bronx Jeers July 29th, 2010 at 11:08 pm

    Yo Bret,

    Any news on that Park for Josh Johnson deal?

  8. Laura - I Bleed Blue July 29th, 2010 at 11:08 pm

    Since it was a blowout, I actually got a laugh out of Thames’ throw. I wouldn’t have been laughing if the score was close.

    As for Girardi using Park 2 innings, something is up with that. Girardi has said in the press that he now knows that he can’t use Park for 2 innings. Then why do it tonight? Either they are DFA’ing the guy after the game or trading him. Anything else points to Girardi’s incompetence and I don’t want that to be the case.

  9. Erica in NY July 29th, 2010 at 11:09 pm

    1 Day, 16 hours, and 50 Minutes until the Trade Deadline!!!!!!!!

  10. Bret The Hitman July 29th, 2010 at 11:09 pm

    Doesn’t it seem like every contender has done something?

    Rangers: Cliff Lee + Jorge Cantu

    Phillies: Roy Oswalt

    Angels: Haren

    Twins: Capps

    Are we gonna get shut out?

  11. Jeremy July 29th, 2010 at 11:10 pm

    Chan Ho should only come in a game if the Yankees are winning by 15 or more runs.

  12. Erica in NY July 29th, 2010 at 11:10 pm

    I cannot stop laughing about that throw. WOW.

    Yo Bret,

    ********

    Sticking point is $$. Yanks want Marlins to pay 1/2 JJ’s salary.

  15. Rich in NJ July 29th, 2010 at 11:10 pm

    “Are we gonna get shut out?”

    I think it shows that they are reluctant to add a big, multi-year contract.

    Anyway, no deal is better than a bad deal.

  16. pat July 29th, 2010 at 11:11 pm

    “I wouldn?t have been laughing if the score was close.”

    He wouldn’t have been there for you to laugh at if the score was close.

  17. Betsy July 29th, 2010 at 11:11 pm

    The Yankees have the best record in baseball; they don’t have to keep up with the Jones’, the Jones’ have to keep up with them.

    It’s rather hard to put the Rangers/Lee up there when the Yankees had a deal in place…………not that they keep scorecards for in-season moves anyway.

  18. stuart a July 29th, 2010 at 11:12 pm

    girardi is shmuck. he left park out there to throw 50 +pitches.

    is he resting chad guadin for a big spot tommorrow????????????

    terrible.

    park is better then gaudin morons……..

  19. Bronx Jeers July 29th, 2010 at 11:12 pm

    Mosely and Chad should go to a museum together next Tuesday morning.

    Brunch at The Met and then catch the 4 at 86th st.

  20. Yogi Mantle July 29th, 2010 at 11:12 pm

    Having Thames at third helped extend the game. I think if Alex was still in he would have gotten to that ball that went through. Its understandable about calling off the dogs, but it was tough on Park to have to throw all those extra pitches.

    233 pitches from the Indians tonight? Holy cow. I wonder what the record is for a 9 inning game.

  21. Laura - I Bleed Blue July 29th, 2010 at 11:12 pm

    “Chan Ho should only come in a game if the Yankees are winning by 15 or more runs.”

    Isn’t that what they say about Joba? :evil:

  22. Betsy July 29th, 2010 at 11:13 pm

    Rich, I’m not sure about that. They had a deal in place for Lee (and they would have re-signed him)…….but Haren was a guy they didn’t love (but they liked). I think it shows that there’s no one out there that they are enamored with, certainly not enough to give up top prospects (well Lee and Soria – but Soria was always a no-go).

  23. Erica in NY July 29th, 2010 at 11:13 pm

  24. SJ44 July 29th, 2010 at 11:13 pm

    You can’t blame Park. That’s on Girardi.

    He’s a short reliever and he threw 52 pitches to take one for the team.

    That’s not right.

    He should have been out of there after 25-28 pitches.

    The poor guy was spent.

    That’s on Joe and not on Park.

  25. blake July 29th, 2010 at 11:13 pm

    Park hasn’t been very good this year but it has been a little curious that they have neglected to use him the way that seems he’s most effective (1 inning only)..

    Good win tonight and a dynamite outing from Mosley…couldn’t have asked for more from him. The bats were alive in the last 2 games of this series. They could have even scored more tonight had they had a little better luck earlier in the game. Lets hope it caries over to TB this weekend.

  26. Betsy July 29th, 2010 at 11:14 pm

    I don’t exactly want Park in a big game against the Rays. If Phil struggles, he won’t be used anyway; if he pitches well, we still have Robertson………but who else? Joba? I guess so………either way, not Park.

  27. Erica in NY July 29th, 2010 at 11:14 pm

    Good night Yankee people!

  28. Nick in SF July 29th, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    Maybe they’re stretching Chan Ho out.

    “The process has begun.”

    :grin:

  29. Betsy July 29th, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    I really don’t want to think Joe would just send someone out there without any concern for his physical well-being; if that’s the case, it speaks very poorly of him.

  30. Rich in NJ July 29th, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    Betsy

    Lee doesn’t make much money this year and they plan on signing him anyway, which is why they don’t want to take on another big contract.

    Yes, they didn’t think trading for Haren’s contract was worth reducing their limited payroll flexibility.

    Good win tonight and dynamite performance by Mosley. Really couldn’t have asked for more from him. The bats were alive in these last 2 games and really they could have scored even more tonight had they had a bit more luck early in the game. Lets hope it carries over to TB this weekend.

    CB July 29th, 2010 at 11:07 pm
    That was ugly and unneccessary. Park has had major issues being extended all year. Girardi knows that. And he left him out there just to burn his arm before the Tampa series.

    =========

    oh no! park can’t pitch in the Tampa series. call it a blessing in disguise. what was girardi supposed to do? bring in a new pitcher for 1 last out in a blowout. the guy was at 25 pitches or so with 2 out before imploding. he’s just useless.

  35. Laura - I Bleed Blue July 29th, 2010 at 11:17 pm

    “while #yankees are out on dunn (never really let in), theres no evidence theyve turned toward old friend matsui”

    Why would they? LAA isn’t going to part with Matsui. He may not be raking for them, but he’s better than nothing.

  36. LGY July 29th, 2010 at 11:17 pm

    “Are we gonna get shut out?”

    ——————————

    Those teams have to make moves because they are chasing the Yankees.

  38. Kelvin July 29th, 2010 at 11:18 pm

    Damn, good trade for the Nationals.

    Wilson Ramos for Matt Capps, I’m digging the job Jimmy is doing out there.

    Now sign Harper, protect Strasburg’s arm and they actually have a good future.

    =====================

    yeah ok. gaudin was actually useful last year and give the Yankees some good starts and still has been better and more useful this year. nice try though.

  40. qiantom July 29th, 2010 at 11:19 pm

    Girardi totally abused Park tonight. He is a good one inning pitcher but Joe insists on pitching him multiple innings.

  41. Betsy July 29th, 2010 at 11:19 pm

    Rich, true.

    Of course the Nats didn’t let them in……..probably asked for Montero and Betances.

  42. ron July 29th, 2010 at 11:21 pm

    ~Stuart a

    What do you think about mosely starting over mitre now?

  43. LGY July 29th, 2010 at 11:22 pm

    Laura,

    I am not advocating trading for Matsui but the Angels are 9 games out and their playoff hopes are as close to shot as you can get.

    Rumors today said they are going to be sellers now and Matsui will probably be available.

  44. Bronx Jeers July 29th, 2010 at 11:23 pm

    No way I’m taking that deal if I’m Cashman.

    Throw in Hanley and then maybe. Maybe…

  45. Rich in NJ July 29th, 2010 at 11:23 pm

    They really need a non-DH, but if they could steal Matsui…and I mean steal.

  46. SJ44 July 29th, 2010 at 11:24 pm

    Ok, thanks Rich.

  48. ron July 29th, 2010 at 11:30 pm

    I’d be worried if the rays added anybody significant & i hope we don’t meet the phillies in the ws.

    oswalt
    halladay
    hamels would be no fun.

    This is the only reason i would wan’t to add a player.
    Cashman did try for the best though & almost pulled it off with lee to his credit & if he has a chance to upgrade the team without getting robbed i would hope he does it & believe he will.

  49. MTU July 29th, 2010 at 11:30 pm

    All I can say is that I am glad we won tonite’s game.

    I would not have wanted to go into TB’s house up by only 1 game.

    We have advantageous pitching matchups and if we perform to our capabilities we should do just fine.

    Phil. I’ve got something special for if you pitch a shutout.

    It’s better than an In and Out burger. Trust me. ;)

  50. Bronx Jeers July 29th, 2010 at 11:38 pm

    Why do certain fans still follow the Sox scores?

    They want them DEAD!

    Watch this clip to understand this phenomenon. (just substitute the line “they got the shipment” for “the red sox won a game” and the words “his house” for Fenway Park)

    There’s even a reference to JD Drew! (Nancy Boy)

  51. Captain Clutch July 29th, 2010 at 11:48 pm

    Maybe Park is going to be DFA tomorrow. Girardi doesn’t seem like the type to just leave a guy out there to dry. If the team was losing 11-1 and Girardi was upset then i would understand it because that is usually when a manager does something like that. Since they were winning I don’t get it.

  52. stuckey99 July 29th, 2010 at 11:51 pm

    Was wondering what the intelligencia was going to figure out what to complain about tonight…

  53. Chad Jennings July 29th, 2010 at 11:52 pm

    Just got back to the press box, and yes, Moseley and I talked about setting up visits to the Hall of Fame before every one of his starts.

    Logistically, it seems problematic.

    Also, Nick Swisher and Marcus Thames were being laughed at a LOT in the clubhouse. The replay of Thames throw was must-see-TV.

  54. Nick in SF July 29th, 2010 at 11:55 pm

    It doesn’t have to be the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame.

    Any museum will do and every major league city has some kind of museum.

    Except maybe Tampa, but then you two could visit the city’s oldest Hooters.

  55. BIG AL July 29th, 2010 at 11:56 pm

    Chan Ho Park is a 1 inning pitcher, and what Girardi did to him tonight is wrong. He threw half a game in 2 innings. The next time Joe wants to ruin a pitchers arm, just pick up a bat a slug him on his pitching shoulder. Yes, Park was also to blame, but, you don’t allow a RP to throw 51 pitches in 2 innings. The next time we have a blow out, see if he’ll allow Joba to throw 51 pitches in 2 innings – I don’t think so.

  56. Bronx Jeers July 29th, 2010 at 11:58 pm

  59. stuckey99 July 30th, 2010 at 12:06 am

    Park has thrown over 30 pitches 8 times, including 44 and 39 in consecutive appearances.

    I doubt he’s going to see Dr. Andrews tomorrow.

  60. Bronx Jeers July 30th, 2010 at 12:10 am

    St Pete’s got the Dali Museum. Very cool and just 5 minutes from The Trop.

  61. ron July 30th, 2010 at 12:12 am

    With park girardi did not wan’t to use another pitcher with the tampa series starting tomorrow & park should not of needed 51 pitches with such a big lead but safety first.

    I imagine girardi probably said too bad he is going to finish it unless the indians got close.

  62. tampayank July 30th, 2010 at 12:13 am

    Heard Salvador Dali has some great work but never been. Several new museams in DT Tampa on Ashleigh Drive

  63. m July 30th, 2010 at 12:14 am

    Just catching up. Looks like I missed the fireworks.

    Frozen Rope,

    You calling Park a bum doesn’t change my opinion of Park (or of you).

  64. Eric UWS July 30th, 2010 at 12:20 am

    Last 162 games, Yankes 107-57. Wow.

  65. ron July 30th, 2010 at 12:21 am

    “Meanwhile, Baseball America posted a list of ten prospects who have increased their stock since the start of June (sub. req’d). Jesus Montero (“A scout who saw Montero this month didn’t see the outstanding raw power than Montero has shown in the past, but noted that Montero consistently drove the ball into the gaps even if he did bail on the breaking ball on occasion.”) came in at number two, David Phelps (“His secondary stuff is fringy, but he mixes a slurvy curveball, a short slider and a change with solid sink and throws them all for strikes, making him an option for the back of the rotation or middle-relief work.”) at number eight”.

    “Oh, and David Adams? Turns out it was a broken ankle. That explains why he’s been out so long”.

  66. Crash July 30th, 2010 at 12:24 am

    Park is not a 1 inning pitcher. He has been used for multiple innings this year. And last year as a phillie he was used for multiple innings. The guy had a decent pitch count until he had 2 outs in the 9th. The guy just lost it. He has been awful this year. I dont blame Girardi for not taking him out. Its a joke Boone Logan even had to start warming up.

  67. ron July 30th, 2010 at 12:27 am

    Park would have been out of the inning if girardi did not put thames at 3rd base right???

  68. stuart a July 30th, 2010 at 12:36 am

    taqlk to me about mosely after 3 starts sheep. again podsednik had a good series against the yanks so all the sheep want to get podsednik..

    like the other 150 games do not count.

    girardi was a jack a-s tonight on how he treated Park. Gaudin could not pitch better then Park if Park pitched lefty….

  69. stuart a July 30th, 2010 at 12:37 am

    park has only be good in 1 inning stints this year. look at the #’s……….

  70. RalphieD July 30th, 2010 at 12:48 am

    i cant get too worked up about park throwing that many pitches…

  71. LGY July 30th, 2010 at 12:48 am

    stuart,

    Is sheep your form of tribute to Mr. Dustin Moseley?

    In and Out Burgers for Phil sound much more appetizing :???:

  72. pat July 30th, 2010 at 12:58 am

    Park had a 44 pitch, 2 inning outing against Cleveland in May and 30 of the pitches were in the 9th inning.

    I don’t remember people accusing Girardi of abuse then.

  73. Crash July 30th, 2010 at 1:05 am

    Park has a 5.86 era and Gaudin has a 4.97 era as a yankee this year. And Gaudin pitched well last year. Gaudin fills a role of being a long man and pitching garbage innings. Park has failed at his role. He needs to be DFA and Albaledejo should be recalled.
