Postgame notes: You can’t take away that pitch

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Notes on Jul 30, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Yankees Rays Baseball

Phil Hughes pitched really well tonight. Except for one pitch in the sixth inning, he gave the Yankees everything they could have asked for in a game like this.

“I felt like my fastball was good,” he said. “My curveball was probably the best its been this year. It’s a positive note to build on going forward, but you can’t take away that pitch. You can’t take away that game.”

The one pitch was a 2-2 fastball to Matt Joyce. Hughes setup the pitch with back-to-back curveballs and thought he had “slowed him down enough” to get a fastball inside. He wasn’t upset with the location up and down — he didn’t want it too low to the lefty — but the fact it got out over the plate made the difference.

“It’s one of those games where whoever makes the bigger mistake is going to lose, and that was us,” he said.

APTOPIX Yankees Berkman BaseballThe Rays pulled within a game in the American League East tonight, but the game was clearly a background event. It was hard look past all of the trade rumors swirling.

The Austin Kearns deal is official, and the Lance Berkman deal seems like a matter of time, with Joel Sherman reporting that Mark Melancon and Jimmy Paredes will go to Houston. I heard from Kevin Russo who said his being out of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre lineup was a regular day off. As far as he knows, he hasn’t been traded.

Buster Olney says the Yankees aren’t stopping at two trades. He’s heard they’re working on a third, possibly for an infielder.

APTOPIX Yankees Rays Baseball• Nick Swisher said he never wants to not go after a ball, only to find out he could have caught it if he’d tried. But even he admitted that after seeing a replay, he never had a remote chance of robbing Matt Joyce’s home run. “Unless I was having a Coke and a popcorn up there, I wasn’t going to catch that,” he said.

• For a while, it looked like Swisher’s first-pitch-swinging home run was going to make the difference. “Everybody wants to be the hero,” Swisher said. “But that game for us tonight was lost on one pitch. Hughesy threw an amazing game. No doubt. Just one pitch was the difference. You don’t want to look at it in a negative way because of everything else he did, but it was just one pitch. That’s it.”

• Good outing for Joba Chamberlain, who said he did a better job staying up over the rubber and finishing out front with his delivery. “There’s a difference between going out and throwing and the times you go out and pitch,” Chamberlain said. “Tonight I made some pitches in that second inning to give us a chance to win the ballgame. I just went out and tried to locate my fastball and threw my slider pretty well. I would probably say it’s the best I’ve thrown (the slider) all year.”

• Everyone seemed to agree that Wade Davis found his curveball after the first inning, and that seemed to make all the difference.

• The Rays sold out every game this series, their first sellouts since Opening Day. “I didn’t hear as many cowbells,” Hughes said. “I guess the crowd was louder, and then after that homer, that place really got loud. That was probably the loudest I’ve ever heard it.” This is the first time the Rays have ever sold out three straight regular-season games.

• Girardi said Chamberlain threw so few pitches — only 24 — in his two innings that he could probably be used again tomorrow.

• One game is the closest the Rays have been to the Yankees since June 21, when they were a half game back.

• The Joyce home run was the first Hughes had allowed on the road this season.

• Alex Rodriguez has gone 34 at-bats without a home run since hitting No. 599.

    The Yanks don’t have much faith in him if they are going after Lilly………putting Phil in the pen once Andy gets back? :mad:

    Once Pettitte back, yes. The Yankee IP limits. RT @6P8OJoba: I feel like Lilly acquisition can only mean sending all-star Hughes to the ‘pen

    Good quote from Phil…………hopefully he’ll just take the positives out of tonight and carry them into his next start.

    Yanks just didn’t hit – credit to Davis.

    “Heard this: The Dodgers and Cubs are closing in on a Ted Lilly trade.”

    good.

  6. SAS July 31st, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I thought Phil pitched a good, crisp game. I hope they don’t trade for Lilly. Hughes deserves his day.

  7. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 12:00 am

    SAS, I didn’t want to drop it without clarifying. I love Paulie (though why bring Phil into it?), but I can love the guy without wanting to retire his # or wanting it held out for special players.

  8. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 12:02 am

    It bugs me that Cash actually is in on Lilly……it bothers me that if they got Lilly Phil would be sent to the pen upon Andy’s return. Either Cashman is truly worried about Phil’s performance or…………..well actually, that’s the only reason I can think he’d want Lilly. I

  9. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 12:02 am

    And now, I’m not worried about Phil – I just think it would be a terrible move

  10. antisocial scrooge July 31st, 2010 at 12:03 am

    rockies have nearly batted around 3x in an inning. wow.

  11. Sweet Swinging Cano July 31st, 2010 at 12:06 am

    I feel for Hughes over this game. He did well just one bad pitch. Yankees hopefully can win tomorrow.

  12. DFox July 31st, 2010 at 12:06 am

    Betsy, I don’t get it, what do you propose they do when Hughes reaches his innings limit? Shut him down for the season?

  13. CB July 31st, 2010 at 12:07 am

    Hughes threw an outstanding game tonight. In a huge spot he really excelled. He was lights out for 5 innings.

    The major issue for him wasn’t even the specific mistake he made on that fastball. The main issue was his curve ball.

    Hughes curve ball tonight in terms of action, bite and deception was excellent. I really liked the action he had on the ball where it had a nice tight break.

    The problem was his curve ball command. Hughes wasn’t throwing his curve ball for strikes consistently and in turn he kept going back to the fastball in key spots. As such he became predictable.

    Hughes only threw his curve for strikes 47% of the time tonight. That’s just not good enough at this level because it wasn’t a tool he could hurt the Rays with consistently despite the strong action he had on the pitch.

  14. igotid88 July 31st, 2010 at 12:07 am

    Maybe 6 man rotation

  15. UnKnown July 31st, 2010 at 12:08 am

    People were on here talking about how they want to get Marshall from the cubbies. He got lit tonight.

  16. Crash July 31st, 2010 at 12:09 am

    Why are the yankees looking at a backup infielder? Pena barely plays that doens’t seem like much of a need. They improved there bench by adding Kerns and Berkman. Most backup infeldiers cant hit. Pena plays solid defense at three different positions.

    The only need is the bullpen. They could use another arm and get rid of Park. Outside of that I dont really think they need anything else.

  17. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 12:09 am

    CB, is that something he can work on during the offseason?

    Igotid, I dont’ think so…….though others have brought that up. It might be a good way to get CC some rest; I know he’s a horse, but he’s only human and I hate pushing him. Unfortunately, with the race being as tight as it is, we sort of have to.

    ————————————————–

    Wasn’t even that bad of a pitch. Possibly the wrong pitch to throw but a couple of inches to the left and it’s in Swish’s glove.

    Lost in all this is the fact that Joba looked good.

  19. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 12:11 am

    DFox, you’re kidding, right? he’s not going to hit his innings limit by early September…………unless they don’t skip him. As I have already said, I prefer him to start as much as possible, through the season – so skip him twice more. I don’t love it, in fact I hate how the long rest effects him, but there’s not much that can be done.

  20. Rich in NJ July 31st, 2010 at 12:12 am

    I will be interested to see what roster decisions are made.

  21. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 12:12 am

    I don’t think it’s lost – it’s one outing.

  22. Pat M. July 31st, 2010 at 3:37 am

    The Yanks will be pulling The Young Master right around the same time Dandy Andy makes his return to The Bronx….I’m guessing that Andy will throw at least 2 rehab assignments ( if not 3 being it’ll be September by the toes the rubber…..So when he does return, it;ll be fast forward to the postseason….As It stands right now, Phil will be maxing out by late August maybe they’ll squeeze out an extra start and get us to Labor Day…..It serves very little sense to by pass his turns any further this season considering r=that we still don’t how or what Mosely will offer based on one nice start……Ted Lilley brings depth and will spell Mosey as soon as he arrives in Pinstripes…….With Aceves out for what is beginning to look like all of 2010, Mosley battles the long relief duty from Miltre……….Bottom line, if the Yanks bullpen is to rise to domination this October, well then, Joba Chamberlain get his act together and be a reliable option when the banners & buntings are hanging in the Stadium……He’s now become a key…..The disappointments of09 & 2010 need to be put to rest….His tenure in Pinstripes are riding on how he performs from now on out…..Things are beginning to take form as we approach the final turn of the 2010 season……Hard to believe that in 2 months, we’ll be scrambling for olayoff tickets……I’m in NYC October 14th through October 17TH……The I’ll be flying back for Games 3-4 & 5 if necessay

  23. Sweet Swinging Cano July 31st, 2010 at 4:10 am

    I don’t think getting a sp is necessarily a need. But I can see why they would.

  24. Sweet Swinging Cano July 31st, 2010 at 4:12 am

    For Hughes to take the next level(he is already good) I really think he has to develop his changeup more.

  25. vinny-b July 31st, 2010 at 6:40 am

    ok where is the person who stated uncategorically numerous times, that Mark Melancon is a better pitcher than David Robinson? I am calling you out.

    seeing how he was jettisoned to Houston for a role player, i am sure the Yankees agree with you. Hilarious

  26. benfica356 July 31st, 2010 at 7:13 am

    mlbtraderumors RT @dbackswriter: Dbacks send Qualls to Rays for PTBNL. NO cash involved. Tampa paying rest of Qualls salary. http://bit.ly/9qkpby

  27. RhapsodyInBlue July 31st, 2010 at 7:14 am

    Well I wouldn’t be so quick to jump on anyone who had faith in Melancon it might turn out that a change is what he needed to prosper.

    Still a very young man with lots of time.

    I for one am disappointed that he didn’t work out with the Yankees but in no way would I write him off as a failure. Too soon for that.

  28. Bret The Hitman July 31st, 2010 at 7:23 am

    Goood mornin :)

    I’m heading to the local farmer’s market at 8 am ET with roommate.

    I’m looking at grass-fed beef, pasteurized chicken and chicken eggs, and some pork.

    I might buy sweet potatoes and broccoli too.

    Gonna get their early.

    In the meantime, I’m glad I didn’t try to stay up all night last night.

    Everyone tweeted out, went to sleep.

    Any big trades today?

    We’ll see…

  29. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 7:28 am

    The irony never ceases.

    The Rays get Qualls and Wheeler who used to be a BP tandem for the Astros, and we wind up with Berkman who was also an Astro. Only he was a top batsman.

    And now they will have to face each other.

    How weird. :)

  30. GreenBeret7 July 31st, 2010 at 7:29 am

    Lilly would be the perfect replacement for Hughes when he goes to the pen in september. He’s going to be at about 140 by that time and adding in another 20 innings out of the pen plus post season work puts him right about on target to go the full season in 2011. Does it happen? Who knows, but, it accomplishes one thing. It lengthens the bullpen and gives NYY another starter for unforseen situations. As good a job as Moseley did in Cleveland, that’s not the kind of pitcher he is. He can do it once in a while, but, don’t count on him moving into the rotation for the next 10 years.

    Who goes from the team if Berkman accepts the trade? Probably Thames, who’s not much on defense, but, he did exactly what was asked of him as a bat. He hit. Miranda is out. He hasn’t done much, other than a couple of homers. He can hit, but, not as a part timer. If Lilly comes to the Yanks, Park is the first one gone, though, one of Mitre, Gaudin or Mosely could be included in the deal. If a middle infielder is picked up….someone like Theriot or Bloomquist, Pena will go in that deal.

  31. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 7:31 am

    Bret-

    Morning to you.

    Enjoy the Market.

    Get some good nutritous food to keep you energized.

    We need to keep you strong so you can get us the remaining pieces. :)

  32. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 7:34 am

    GB-

    I prefer Theriot to BQuist.

  33. Bret The Hitman July 31st, 2010 at 7:35 am

    I mean no disrespect to Berkman and Kearns and the upcoming bench replacement for Pena but it’s weird to see the Yankees go for the throat early in their attempt to get Cliff Lee and stop cold at the deadline. There’s a far drop between the improvements the front office had planned to this. This is an historic year where two Yankees icons passed. It seemed like Cashman was going for the kill and now he’s just trying to manage and make small changes wherever possible. Going from Lee to this is somewhat anticlimactic, especially if we reach the deadline and the Rays tie us for 1st tonight while adding a big bat and we do nothing.

    I’ve been hanging around Betsy too long :(

  34. blake July 31st, 2010 at 7:37 am

    I agree with Pat M from last night on Joba. Its time to show what he can do and he has a chance to be very important for the Yankees down the stretch and in the postseason.

    I think you tell that the Yankees want Joba to earn and be in that set up role. Robertson has pitched very well as of late but he doesn’t have the high end stuff or shut down potential that Joba does. The Yankees talent can be optimized if Joba pitches well. He gives the Yankees just enough glimpses of that dominance to keep them intrigued but at some point glimpses aren’t going to be enough. The Yankees need more….will Joba give it to them, we shall see…I hope so.

  35. GreenBeret7 July 31st, 2010 at 7:38 am

    MTU, The Riot is a better ball player than Bloomquist, but, he’s been a regular for years. Bloomquist has been a utility player his whole career and knows how to be ready for emergencies. Not sure The Riot can do that. Bloomquist plays everywhere and well, has very good speed and he hits a bit.

    Good morning MTU, good morning Blake, good morning Green Beret.

    Anybody drinking green tea?

    I know I am.

    Blake, if Joba can rediscover himself it really completes this team.

    Not only that but it takes a tremendous weight off the fans who want him to step in sometime in the near future and be the next closer.

    Considering the cost of relievers on the trade market, Joba’s a real gem potentially if he can keep the Yankees off it.

  38. blake July 31st, 2010 at 7:41 am

    with Lilly to me its all about cost to get him. With the cost be more than the marginal upgrade he will provide down the stretch.

    The Yankees are a good bet to make the playoffs with or without him and I don’t think they would put him in a playoff rotation. So unless he could help out of the pen in the postseason, I don’t see giving up a whole lot to get him.

  39. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 7:43 am

    Blake-

    I am glad they moved Joba down in the pecking order to take some of the pressure off, and he did look good last night. Best in a while.

    Somehow I don’t share your optimism on him though because I believe his problems stem from things that can’t be solved during the course of the regular season. I expect him to continue to be inconsistent. I wish I believed otherwise.

    If he is still around I expect the off season to be the turning point for his career as a Yankee.

    Just my take. And I certainly hope I’m wrong. :)

  40. GreenBeret7 July 31st, 2010 at 7:44 am

    Last night was as dominant as Chamberlain has been in more than a year and for 2 innings. He was impressive. 24 pitches and 16 strikes. That’s the pitching the Yanks expected from him. Hitting a consistant 96-97 MPH and a nasty slider.

    Did something click? One can hope that being exiled to the 6th guy in the pen may be the kick in the can that he needed. We’ll find out sunday or Monday if he’s needed.

  41. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 7:46 am

    Blake-

    I’m not interest in Lilly. Don’t think we need him. We could use a shutdown reliever a lot more, and I hope they max out YMH innings as a starter before sending him to the pen.

    For me, Lilly might interfere with that process which I hope does not occur.

    Again, just my 2 cents worth. :)

    “Killer” is a bit of a bird fancier, too. Maybe a vacation would do him some good. A quick jaunt along the trails, a quick pit stop to unload and then, back to your house for a light snack of finch fries before taking a nap.

  43. blake July 31st, 2010 at 7:50 am

    Brett,

    Morning to you as well…enjoy the market.

    MTU,

    I think I’d call it more hope than optimism. I’m hoping that all the trade speculation lights a fire under Joba. Some (not all) mechanical issues can be concentration related…As I’ve said before..joba is kinda my golf game. I hit just enough good shots to keep going out there and I keep hoping ill get to a point where I hit good shots more consistently. I so think the Yanks are a better team if Joba pitches well.

  44. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 7:53 am

    Three conditions:

    First of all Killer would have to be re-educated to bring ME the beer.

    Secondly, He needs to make sure he leaves a few remaining for my Wife and I to enjoy watching.

    And finally, He is going to have to be fast. Those little guys can move.

    That said. Send him on his way if he can meet the above terms. :)

    Good to see that Berkman vetoed a trade to the white sox. Whether it’s because of Pettitte or the fact he just wants a ring, at least we know he wants to be in NY.

  49. CountryClub July 31st, 2010 at 7:58 am

    As far as Joba, let’s see him pitch like that again his next time out. Are two good outings in a row too much to ask?

  50. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 7:58 am

    Blake-

    Of course the yankees would be better with Joba throwing well. Can’t disagree with that.

    I just don’t think his issues are as much mental as they are mechanical in nature. He has trouble repeating his delivery and I think it is mainly caused by improper conditioning.

    I would have liked to see him re-worked to improve his mechanics but that sure as heck isn’t happening in the middle of the season.

    Hoping the Yankees keep him so he can hit API in the off season and come back a new Man.

    That’s my take, and I hope he proves me wrong. :)

  51. MG July 31st, 2010 at 7:59 am

    I can’t cry over ‘splilled’ Lee because the Yankees aren’t to blame for the trade not being completed.

    At the same time, the trades for Berkman and Kearns are exactly what a contending team does to strenghten itself for the stretch run. Berkman is much better against righties than lefties so either Kearns or Thames (he may not be with the team much longer) can DH against lefties (or DH Posada with Cervelli catching) or Kearns, as others have mentioned, can play the outfield if Granderson has a bad matchup against a lefty. Kearns is a much better backup than anyone they’ve had on the roster this year and can play all 3 positions as well. It doesn’t appear they gave up anyone likely to be with the big club in the future (Melancon just wasn’t going to cut it no matter what many of you thought) so it’s essentially a no cost addition to an already strong team.

    I don’t understand a potential Lilly acquisition but I’ll leave that to Cashman. If Arod needs more time at DH then getting an infielder with some pop definitely would make sense as well.

    The good thing is that even though the Rays are close the Sox are well back, if the Yankees win 100+ games and get beat out by the Rays more power to them, IMO.

  52. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 8:00 am

    And that applies to the dogs as well. :)

  53. GreenBeret7 July 31st, 2010 at 8:02 am

    Last night, Chamberlain was totally focused. No fidgeting on the mound, no pawing the ground, no standing around and stalling and no shake-offs. That made a lot of difference. The hitters weren’t ready for that. He was decisive and confident.

  54. Bret The Hitman July 31st, 2010 at 8:03 am

    The problem with conditioning an athlete like Joba is beyond physical. The diet is ingrained in our lives from birth on. We eat what our families eat at the dinner table and we grow up eating the same foods that our parents eat. To get Joba to unlearn and undo all of his poor eating habits would require a complete overhaul and lifestyle change.

    Every Yankee needs a Registered Dietitian who can help implement nutrition plans that allow for physical conditioning.

    No matter what you do in the gym, you lose it all if you don’t eat nutritious nutrient dense foods.

    Morman dogs? That’s right up his alley. He can have as many wives as you can support. He’s not real picky, either. One sniff and he can tell that she’s for him.

  57. austinmac July 31st, 2010 at 8:05 am

    My prediction the Yankees would not likely make any moves is looking “Just a bit outside”. I do think Berkman can help and that the pennant race is what he needs. The local Houston paper describes him as a good guy and good teammate. He will fit in fast.

    MTU, I am sitting in my cabin looking at the Rockies. First hike this morning. Who stole all the oxygen? :)

    The First Place Rays:

    Younger and better offense.
    Younger and better starting pitching.
    Younger and better bullpen.

    It is inevitable that they are The First Place Rays.

  59. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 8:07 am

    Bret-

    Agree about most if what you said.

    Some things are about genetics though, and if you look at Joba’s Dad
    you can see he comes from burly stock.

    I think a good nutrition program will help all athletes, and regular folk too but I think a few trips down into the Canyon and a regular gym regimen like you could provide would also help greatly.

    By the way, I love Dr. Hyman’s program. I haven’t followed it religiously but enough to know that it works. ;)

    Looks like a total of 4-5 trades at the deadline for the Yankees with a few surprises uncovered by 4pm EST today…gonna be a great day, capped with a victory over the SECOND place Rays…..LOL :-)

  65. The First Place Rays July 31st, 2010 at 8:10 am

    All signs point to the fact that the 2010 First Place Rays will be World Champions this year.

    You just get that Destiny feel — not unlike what we saw with the 2009 Yankees.

  66. Bret The Hitman July 31st, 2010 at 8:11 am

    MTU,

    It’s the nature/nurture argument to be sure.

    I believe if you give me a baby with fat parents and allow me a lifetime of time, I can raise him to be a lean mean fighting machine.

    Glad you like Dr. Hyman :) and are seeing results.

  67. Bret The Hitman July 31st, 2010 at 8:13 am

    The First Place Rays,

    Will you cheer for Crawford in a Yankee uni?

    Will you still root for your team when they relocate to Charlotte?

    I hope so.

  68. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 8:13 am

    Blake-

    I agree there is a Mental component but I don’t think it nearly that high of a percentage. Physical strength breeds confidence not the other way around IMO. I get my confidence to climb from my Stamina and that gives me confidence. I could not just Psyche myself into climbing a 12,000 ft. peak. I think you get my drift.

    Austin-

    You’ll get used to it. Just don’t try to imitate Satllone in CliffHanger.

    I want to see pictures. lot’s of them. I Might be hiking up there in September.

    Enjoy yourself and stay safe. :)

    GB-

    Done deal. I’ll send Killer out to Hillsdale for the multi-format liason.

  69. GreenBeret7 July 31st, 2010 at 8:17 am

    This year, Crawford in pinstripes…in 4 years, Price in pinstripes. And, Devil Ray fans will still be talking about that year being the year that Upton starts living up to his promise….in another uniform.

  70. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 8:18 am

    Bret-

    It’s interesting that Dr. H speaks to that very subject in that he believes Gene expression can be affected by nutrition.

    I am not persuaded that it is true but it is certainly an interesting concept and worthy of further study and research.

    Tell you what. I’ll hike Joba to death and you can feed him.

    Hope you can afford it. ;)

  71. The First Place Rays July 31st, 2010 at 8:19 am

    Will you cheer for Crawford in a Yankee uni?

    YES.

    Will you still root for your team when they relocate to Charlotte?

    YES, if they are in first place.

  72. Bret The Hitman July 31st, 2010 at 8:21 am

    MTU,

    I believe it’s true.

    The health of our genes can be improved by a strong supply of nutrients just as the body can.

    I don’t know why the medical establishment separates genes from body.

    They’re one in the same :)

  73. The First Place Rays July 31st, 2010 at 8:21 am

    So will Arod ever hit another homerun?

  74. Doreen July 31st, 2010 at 8:24 am

    Good morning all.

    The Lee deal would have been a total shocker. I don’t think Cashman set out to do a deal like that; but he inquired (as he always does) and he came really close to getting it done. If that hd happened, it would not have precluded the deals that are happening now, which are the deals that I would have expected in the first place, though I’m slightly surprised there’s much out there at all. Still, pitching is thin out out in the “marketplace.” I’m not sure how I feel about Lilly, but I do know that when Hughes moves to the bullpen, it does lengthen the pen, which is good.

    MTU -

    Love your finch pictures!

    I hope Lance Berkman and Kearns work out for the Yankees. They seem like solid players, so I think we can hope for the best, no?

    See what else pans out later today.

    So bummed that last night came down to one pitch. But it really came down to the offense not being able to put anything together against Davis. A couple of hard hit balls (by Posada particularly) with nothing to show for them and that’s about it. I was happy Joba had an impressive outing. I hope he’s turning a corner. I know all the arguments against it, but because he has the raw talent, there’s no reason not to believe that something can “click” for him at any minute. If you put in the work, and by accounts he has, it should just be a matter of time and determination. I’m optimistic. (So shoot me! :lol: )

    Since ARod hasn’t hit #600 yet, I’m starting to hope he hits it tomorrow when my parents are there. It would be my mother’s luck – she’s a pretty lucky lady.

  75. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 8:27 am

    Bret-

    A lot more well-controlled research is needed.

    It doesn’t matter to me though. I am a practical guy. If the program works and does no harm (which it doesn’t) the mechanism of action is a secondary consideration for me.

    In about 50 years, if we are still here, humanity will look back on this period and laugh at the things we tried and did, because Science will
    have achieved even greater Miracles.

    The surface is still just being scratched IMO.

    It will be like comparing a Gas engine auto to a Floating Anti-gravity machine.

    It’s gonna looks primitive and very humorous by comparison.

    You heard it here first. :)

  76. SJ44 July 31st, 2010 at 8:27 am

    Chances are greater Arod will hit another HR this year than your beloved Boston Red Sox will sniff a playoff spot.

    Which is why you are left to trolling a Yankee blog.

  77. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 8:29 am

    Doreen-

    Glad to provide them.

    I’m a litlle concerned though because GB is sending “Killer” out here for some R and R, and he tells me that Killer likes eating Finches as a snack.

    I can’t control what Killer does. My end of the deal was that Killer needs to be re-trained to fetch Beer on command. :)

  78. jpb173 July 31st, 2010 at 8:31 am

    Last night was as dominant as Chamberlain has been in more than a year and for 2 innings. He was impressive. 24 pitches and 16 strikes. That’s the pitching the Yanks expected from him. Hitting a consistant 96-97 MPH and a nasty slider.

    Did something click? One can hope that being exiled to the 6th guy in the pen may be the kick in the can that he needed. We’ll find out sunday or Monday if he’s needed.

    ——————————————————————————————————-

    GB7, the problem with Joba is that he is inconsistent. He’s had many fine outings this season but on other outings he’s been awful. His mechanics are bad. I don’t think he can be “fixed” in one outing. He’s going to need an entire spring training working with a pitching coach every day to make sure that he can repeat his delivery (arm slot, stride, etc). Until that happens he will be a tease…and we can’t trust him in important situations.

  79. blake July 31st, 2010 at 8:32 am

    MTU,

    So you disagree with Yogi? ;)

    nah, its hard to say what the cause it. Its multifactorial. Concentration and focus would be #1 on my list but I don’t disagree that he could probably be in better shape.

    Weird having a sat. Night game but at least its on TV (mlb network)

    SJ44, lol, you’re so funny. That’s why I love ya.

  82. Yankee Trader July 31st, 2010 at 8:35 am

    Good morning all. I’m going to throw out some names of utility/semi-regular players that may be available from teams fading or already toast from making the playoffs.
    Cesar or Maicer Izturis
    Willie Bloomquist
    Jack Wilson
    Edwin Encarnacion
    Melvin Mora
    Wes Helms
    Emilio Bonifacio
    Jamey Carroll
    Craig Counsell
    Ex Attny Gen. Alberto Gonzalez

    Thoughts?

    On the topic of Lilly, any lefty with strikeout potential, might be worth it in Yankee stadium, and actually his ERA is solid when pitching with 5 days rest.

  83. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 8:35 am

    Blake-

    No I don’t.

    When Joba comes to a fork in the road he needs to take it, and it’s getting late early around here for him. His pitching is Deja vu all over again this season.

    Yeah. a day game would have been better.

    We must take at least 1 of 3. Hopefully we win the next 2. :)

  84. GreenBeret7 July 31st, 2010 at 8:37 am

    The First Place Rays July 31st, 2010 at 8:21 am
    So will Arod ever hit another homerun?

    ———————————————————————————————————————-

    At last check, Rodriguez had more homers and RBI than Longoria and Braun.

  85. jpb173 July 31st, 2010 at 8:38 am

    The problem with conditioning an athlete like Joba is beyond physical. The diet is ingrained in our lives from birth on. We eat what our families eat at the dinner table and we grow up eating the same foods that our parents eat. To get Joba to unlearn and undo all of his poor eating habits would require a complete overhaul and lifestyle change.

    ————————————————————————————————–

    Its more than that. Joba was sped through the Yankees minor league season in less than 15 months. He never worked with any one minor league pitching instructor for more than a month or two…so his mechanics are a patchwork of “tips” from each, but not built on sound fundamentals. Earler this week there was an article that he threw 5 pitches in the bullpen and his foot landed in a different place each time. Systematic issues like that won’t be fixed quickly and when they are he may regress for a half season until he’s comfortable with the new mechanics.

  86. Doreen July 31st, 2010 at 8:38 am

    MTU -

    Just keep Killer busy fetching beer, and he won’t have time to go after the finches. Also GB7 said he likes finch fries, so keep the cooking gear hidden. :)

  87. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 8:38 am

    Doreen-

    Will do. :)

  88. blake July 31st, 2010 at 8:43 am

    What’s Lilly going to cost though? If its another one of these “non prospect” deals and they are willing to take the salary then fine.

    But otherwise how much does Lilly increase their chances of making the playoffs? Barring a pretty major tailspin the Yanks should make the playoffs regardless and I doubt they would put Ted in a post season rotation. So unless they can get him for peanuts I don’t see the value.

  89. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 8:45 am

    Doreen-

    One last thought.

    Is it possible that GB is just laying all that off on Killer and it’s really him who likes the Finch fries and all the cavorting around ?

    Wouldn’t be beyond GB to throw someone under the bus you know.

    He’s done it to me when trying to hog up all of the affection of the women on this blog.

    He is pretty insatiable. :)

  90. blake July 31st, 2010 at 8:46 am

    Melancon and Paredes for Berkman?

    Is it just me or is that a ridiculously good trade for the Yankees?

    —————————————————————————

    That depeends on which Berkman we get. Do we get the Berkman that didn’t produce at all in the first half of the season or do we get the Berkman that was a vital cog in the Astros lineup for close to a decade?

  102. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 9:04 am

    Blake, it’s enough with Joba and having to light a fire under him; he’s a professional. While I don’t advocate trading him for garbage, I think it’s ridiculous that he needs to be constantly motivated.

  103. THE TRUTH July 31st, 2010 at 9:06 am

    jpb173-

    I think the risk/reward of Berkman makes the trade worth it.

    I wasn’t all about Berkman coming here, and preferred a reliever (which I would still like to see happen), BUT this seems like a ridiculously good deal for the Yanks.

  104. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 9:07 am

    Blake, I don’t agree. Why get Lilly? They don’t need him……skip Phil twice more, take him until mid to late September and then put him in the pen. He just makes no sense at all.

    As to Joba, I’m not going to get giddy over one outing – he’s had those before.

  105. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 9:07 am

    jpb-

    How would you feel if we get the Berkman that mashes righties, loves the NYS short porch, and puts ridiculously patient professional at bats.

    Would that work for you. ;)

  106. joeman July 31st, 2010 at 9:08 am

    after every at bat Arod is looking around in the stands and then going to the dugout sitting by himself, as this continues it will become more of a problem for him and the team..He’s right on some of these pitches and once he hits 600 I believe he gets on a crazy run..

  107. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 9:08 am

    Oops, I see that you basically agree, Blake………except I wouldn’t bother trading for Lilly at all.

    I just don’t want to be swept; take 1 game and get out of Dodge

  108. joeman July 31st, 2010 at 9:10 am

    don’t need another SP…go get a lock down 8th inning RP

  109. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 9:10 am

    Um, how has it been a problem for the team when they’ve been playing so well. This whole chase has been ridiculously overplayed – as if Alex hasn’t gone days without hitting a HR before.

  110. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 9:11 am

    Looks like G.I. Joe has two new weapons to play with.

    A super-Berkman concussion grenade, and an AK-47 (Austin Kearns as #47). :)

    Ken_Rosenthal #Yankees and as Denver Post reported, Theriot-for-Kelly Johnson has been discussed. “Minor sniffs” on Nady, Fontenot as well. #MLB

  116. THE TRUTH July 31st, 2010 at 9:14 am

    I think the best part will be putting his .372 obp in this lineup. I love when Swish bats second (been saying that since last season) so my lineup would look like this:

    Jeter-SS
    Swisher-OF
    Tex-1b
    Arod-3b
    Cano-2b
    Berkman-DH
    Posada-C
    Granderson-OF
    Gardner-OF

    Now that I typed that out I realize Posada could also be moved up and Berkman moved down, to split up lefties depending who is hot, so another potential line up is this:

    Jeter-SS
    Swisher-OF
    Tex-1b
    Arod-3b
    Cano-2b
    Posada-C
    Granderson-OF
    Berkman-DH
    Gardner-OF

    Berkman and Posada could be flip flopped there too depending who is a hot. Either way an amazing line up. Love Gardner’s speed in the 9 hole too.

  117. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 9:16 am

    Let’s see what happens? I don’t even know what that means; Alex is not hurting the team, lol and there’s not even an argument to be made.

  118. THE TRUTH July 31st, 2010 at 9:16 am

    A-Rod is going to mash that homer soon and he will be right as rain.

    I agree with everyone saying we need an 8 inning guy, they are just very had to get. I’d like to see Albaladejo get a shot.

  119. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 9:16 am

    I like the 2nd one better, and you’re right. That’s a sick lineup. :)

    it means the longer this goes on lets see how this effects the team..

  124. 86w183 July 31st, 2010 at 9:23 am

    There is nothing more overpriced in the trade market than a “lock down” eighth inning reliever. As has been written here by many relievers even many closers are historically extremely erratic. The Yanks will have a post-season pen that likely features Logan, Marte, Robertson, Chamberlain, Hughes and Rivera and that will have to be good enough.

    Kearns is an excellent addition. He’s better at everything than Thames and will probably spell Granderson against some lefties based on their track records with those pitchers. Berkman at his best is a helluva hitter and here’s hoping his last three weeks are an indication his first half struggles are history. Otherwise Melancon and $ 3.5 Million seems like a lot for a DH upgrade.

    Is it safe to assume Curtis and Miranda are on the bus to Scranton?

  125. benfica356 July 31st, 2010 at 9:23 am

    ————————————————————————————————

    A package deal for Carlos Marmol and Ryan Theriot would be sweet. Neither player would be a free agent so the Yankees could keep them again next year. Both are eligible for arbitration however.

    The downside is that such a package would be expensive…we wouldn’t get those two for what Berkman and Kearns cost us.

    Unfortunately, my ouija board keeps saying something about Brandon League.

  130. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 9:33 am

    FYI, I know some had mentioned last night that Phil should have thrown a curve to Joyce (another one):

    http://www.nypost.com/p/sports.....K8g4U1sFdJ

    Hughes knew exactly what he wanted to do on the 2-and-2 count, two outs in the inning, two men on base, the Rays’ only true threat of the night. He had seen Joyce jump out of his shoes at the breaking ball.

    “I thought maybe I’d slowed his bat down,” he said. “So I wanted to go with hard stuff. And I wanted to get it up in the zone, because getting it low against a lefty is asking for trouble.”

  131. austinmac July 31st, 2010 at 9:35 am

    Lilly has pitched very well in his last few starts. It all depends on what it would take to get him. I do not think Hughes would be negatively impacted, and he would certainly bolster the pen. Pitching in the pen last year didn’t hurt his development this year.

  132. benfica356 July 31st, 2010 at 9:37 am

    SI_JonHeyman #mets turned down request of bobby parnell and josh thole for brett myers. so myers is available — for a steep price
    SI_JonHeyman #mets offered ollie perez and luis castillo for carlos zambrano but #cubs didnt want castillo, too.

  133. JK July 31st, 2010 at 9:39 am

    Betsy,

    Here is what Hughes has to learn, you slow a hitters bat down when they offer or foul off a breaking pitch not when they take it for a strike.

  134. Fran the original July 31st, 2010 at 9:42 am

    Is it safe to assume Curtis and Miranda are on the bus to Scranton?

  136. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 9:43 am

    JK, that’s interesting……….I wonder if Eiland talked to him about that. Maybe more of Phil’s development is mental (in terms of pitch selection) than we thought?

  137. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 9:44 am

    Austin, it’s not the same as being a starting pitcher……..I don’t agree; I think he needs to start for as long as possible. Also, we don’t need Lilly……..at all.

  138. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 9:46 am

    With Kearns aboard, Thames gathers rust on the bench. Melancon’s 40-man spot gets taken by Berkman. Miranda is now excess but still on the 40-man roster.

  140. JK July 31st, 2010 at 9:51 am

    Betsy,

    I’m not really that broken up about yesterday with Hughes. That was the nastiest curveball he’s had in quite some time. His velocity was also back to normal.

    ——–

    Just DFA Reegie Corona to open a spot on the 40 for Kearns. Never quite understood why he was added in the first place.

  142. YankeeRay July 31st, 2010 at 9:54 am

    My money says that Thames is DFA’d today for Kearns. Kearns is more flexible being able to play OF. Miranda goes for Berkman. Curtis will stay unless we add an IF who can also play OF similar to Hairston.

  143. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 9:55 am

    JK, oh I agree………….I think Girardi probably agreed, to. Hopefully he can carry that forward into his next game.

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.c.....index.html

    That the New York Yankees can casually (reportedly) trade for such a player in the midst of a pitched pennant race is cause for some real indignance. Fuzzy as details are at the moment for technical reasons involving Berkman’s rights as a 10-year veteran who’s played for the same team for the last five years, it seems the Yankees will pay Berkman’s salary for the rest of the year and consequently send the Astros nondescript minor leaguers in exchange for his services through the end of the season. That’s a heist. If this deal decides the aforementioned pitched pennant race, though, it will count as a minor miracle

    *******

    How pathetic is this?

    GB,

    From a baseball standpoint (I really don’t know enough about the incident with his wife to comment) Myers makes much more sense to me as well because of his experience in the bullpen. I song know what the price tag is though…likely steep I would think.

  146. blake July 31st, 2010 at 10:04 am

    Song = don’t. FYI: my phone likes to change words as it chooses.

  147. SJ44 July 31st, 2010 at 10:05 am

    Its good to be hated. That means you are a good team. Good teams are hated.

    It would be nice though if SI got their facts straight.

    The Yankees have never formally announced the trade. Just because members of the media announced it, like SI’s own Jon Heyman, its not the Yankees fault. They are abiding by the rules and will formally announce the trade today.

    The Yankees also aren’t paying all of Berkman’s salary for the rest of the year. They are paying less than half.

    Other than that, the SI story is accurate! lol

  148. blake July 31st, 2010 at 10:05 am

    Will berkman be at the game tonight?

  149. benfica356 July 31st, 2010 at 10:06 am

  154. Erica in NY July 31st, 2010 at 10:12 am

    I woke up this morning feeling really good about Berkman. He is a player I have always liked and I think he’s got enough left in him to give us a little so0mething. I hope this gets officially announced soon.

  155. SAS July 31st, 2010 at 10:13 am

    Good morning all,

    The blog went down last night. I guess it didn’t get enough of the proper nourishment. In any case it is nice to see you westerners up with the sun.

    Love your finches, MTU.

    Now that we have enough outfielders/DHs, who is going to be another back up infielder for us. Certainly or seemingly we need a second person to count on if disaster strikes.

  156. SJ44 July 31st, 2010 at 10:14 am

    Berkman should be in the lineup tonight.

    Houston to Tampa is a direct plane trip and the deal was done in early afternoon yesterday.

    That gives them plenty of cover with the 24 hour rule.

    Unless he has personal business to wrap up in Houston, always a possiblity, good chance he is in the lineup tonight.

  157. blake July 31st, 2010 at 10:15 am

    MTU,

    Just to be clear…I don’t think the Yanks really NEED to do anything else. I think having Hughes in the postseason bullpen changes the quality of it a lot and I have hope the rest of the guys will perform as well. I was just saying I’d much prefer Myers than Lilly if choosing between the two.

    When you combine my already poor grammar and spelling with my blackberry…you get a poor product…what can I say

    question where he bat in the lineup

  161. pat July 31st, 2010 at 10:17 am

    SI_JonHeyman #mets offered ollie perez and luis castillo for carlos zambrano but #cubs didnt want castillo, too.

    Of those 3 names, Castillo would be the least of my worries.

  162. blake July 31st, 2010 at 10:17 am

    SJ,
    Cool, I like Berkman. Always have. If a pennant race can turn back the clock a couple years then I think this trade could wind up being huge for the Yanks.

  163. benfica356 July 31st, 2010 at 10:17 am

  166. Yogi Mantle July 31st, 2010 at 10:19 am

    The ignorance that gets thrown around is almost comical from many of the writers etc…Hughes didn’t throw one bad pitch, he threw many in the game, just many of them were either taken for strikes (could mean the pitch selection was good) or that the guys just missed hittable pitches. In fact, the pitch he threw for a HR was spotted fairly well (right on top of the strike zone and a little in), the huge problem was that it was not the right pitch to throw! he should have come back with the curve ball. Joyce was looking fastball that entire AB and they never should have thrown it; he had just chased a curve in the dirt…

    BTW, why in the world did we get Kearns? He does NOTHING for us…mediocre hitter who does not run well and actually hits righties better? Berkman was a good move though, although he really is a guy who isn’t too good against lefties and should be used as a DH against righties and a rest for Tex against righties. The Yanks would have been better off not getting Kearns and just get a good fielding OF who hits lefties, even if he is an instant out against righties.

    ———————————————————————————————————————-

    What happened between Myers and his wife 4 years ago was a sad and nasty incident. He and his wife seemed to work through the issues and spent a lot of time in counsaling. Good for them. That’s better than busting up a marriage. She seems to have forgiven him, so, as far as I’m concerned, the incident is over. Funny how people will clamour for an admitted drug addict like Hamilton and think nothing of it. That did as much damage to his wife and family as anything. It’s hard to imagine blowing a $4 mil bonus in less than 2 years, and relapsing in 2009 and needs a round the clock baby sitter that hands him out a $20 a day allowance for meals.

    I think Cashman should call the Marlins, and inquire about Ricky Nolasco and Anibal Sanchez. Both had pitched for Girardi, and was under Mike Harkey’s wings. I like Sanchez a bit more since he doesn’t give up much homers, while Nolasco has a nice K rate. Both of them is decent too…

    “Funny how people will clamour for an admitted drug addict like Hamilton and think nothing of it.”

    I’ve never clamored for Hamilton, but you can’t possibly think that being a drug addict and beating your wife are the same thing. Unless Hamilton beat his wife while he was high, Myers’ offense was worse. And I don’t care that his wife forgave him. If I man hits you once, he’s capable of hitting you again. Ask any battered woman.

    Hamilton’s drug habit most certainly did damage to his marriage and his family, but at the end of the day, I bet his wife is glad he never [as far as we know] beat her.

    The GTLU lineups will be interesting in the days to come. Not that they haven’t been all season. I think Berkman will bat 8th between Granderson and Gardner or 6th if Posada isn’t playing.

    This is probably wron as I have been awful at the GTLU this year…my rookie year.

  220. 86w183 July 31st, 2010 at 10:55 am

    I suggested Kearns in the offseason as a solid fourth OF who can play either corner OF position reasonably well and has some pop in his bat.

    Thames (.844) is a bit better in his career vs LHP than Kearns (.799) but Kearns is a MUCH better outfielder defensively. Neither is much of a base stealer but Kearns (31-47 SB) runs a lot better than Thames (3-12 SB).

    I actually think Kearns will take as many AB from Granderson (.538 OPS vs LHP) as he does from Thames. Barkman will take AB from Miranda and Posada since he’s a better LH hitter than either of them.

    Kearns and Berkman for Curtis and Miranda is a huge depth upgrade.

  221. CountryClub July 31st, 2010 at 10:55 am

    Berkman could bat 2nd or 6th-8th. If I had to guess, l’d say 7th and my next guess would be 2nd.

  222. upstate kate July 31st, 2010 at 10:56 am

    SAS
    GTLU certainly will be more of a challenge! We will have some time to see where Girardi puts him while Doreen is on vacation.
    I am guessing 6th, behind Robbie

  223. Crawdaddy July 31st, 2010 at 10:56 am

    The Yankees are adding two to the 40 man roster with only Melancon off that same roster. Somebody is going to be a former Yankee today whether it’s being released, waived or traded.

    omg, chad and sam still haven’t updated the blog, does that mean that there is news on the way and they are preparing a breaking news story!!

  226. Fran the original July 31st, 2010 at 10:58 am

    SAS,

    Hi. There is no GTLU until August 12 since Doreen is going on vacation. It will give us all a chance to see how Girardi uses Kearns and Berkman.

  227. Crawdaddy July 31st, 2010 at 10:59 am

    Also, you usually want experienced hitters coming off the bench during the playoffs which is why Curtis and Miranda were replaced by Berkman and Kearns.

  228. MTU July 31st, 2010 at 10:59 am

    I really hope Berkman and Kearns are available tonite.

    Never hurts to have extra ammo for your Barrett M82.

    See below:

    jaysonst Teams that have talked to #BlueJays say they’ve lowered price slightly on Jason Frasor, but not on Scott Downs or Jose Bautista. #trades
    less than a minute ago via web

    Good, I think they should try to make a trade for Frasor. If the price is still too much though, we can forget about him.

  230. Giuseppe Franco July 31st, 2010 at 11:01 am

    I wonder if Marte could/would be moved to the 60-day DL to make room on the 40-man roster.

    Just a thought. While Pettitte is out, they need the extra pen arms.

  231. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 11:01 am

    m1Kew, I read that this morning – good stuff.

  232. Rich in NJ July 31st, 2010 at 11:02 am

    I think Miranda could go.

  233. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 11:02 am

    GF, that would mean Marte would be gone for the rest of the season; I don’t think the Yankees would do that.

  234. BumKnee July 31st, 2010 at 11:03 am

    Crawdaddy–my you are some impressive and smart fella. All that insight into such earth shattering and global matters. The security of the Free World depends on your continued input and assessment. Keep up the good work.

  235. 86w183 July 31st, 2010 at 11:03 am

    It’s probably too early for GTLU, but here’s what I hope to see tonight:

    LF Brett Gardner
    SS Derek Jeter
    1B Mark Teixiera
    3B Alex Rodriguez
    2B Robinson Cano
    RF Nick Swisher
    DH Lance Berkman
    C Jorge Posada
    CF Curtis Granderson

    Try no-hitting that lineup Mr. Garza!

    It’s time for Gardner (.399 OBP, 30 SB) to lead off instead of the Captain (.337, 11 SB)

  236. Rich in NJ July 31st, 2010 at 11:03 am

    “MaineYankee—Garbage in (Granderson’s arrival) garbage out—getting rid of him and his stink ASAP. A waste of space—the space between your ears”

    Crawdaddy July 31st, 2010 at 10:56 am
    The Yankees are adding two to the 40 man roster with only Melancon off that same roster. Somebody is going to be a former Yankee today whether it’s being released, waived or traded.
    ********

    Park DFA seems to fit.

  239. jpb173 July 31st, 2010 at 11:04 am

    Alfredo Aceves could be put on the 60 day DL to free up a spot on the 40 man roster.

  240. Doreen July 31st, 2010 at 11:05 am

    Aren’t you all glad I planned my vacation to coincide with the end of the trading period?? :lol:

  241. Giuseppe Franco July 31st, 2010 at 11:08 am

    # Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 11:02 am

    GF, that would mean Marte would be gone for the rest of the season; I don’t think the Yankees would do that.

    ———-

    No, that’s not what it means.

    Marte hasn’t pitched since 6/06. If they put him on the 60-day DL, he won’t be available until 8/06, which is just a week away.

    Girardi has said several times in recent days that Aceves is further along than Marte is so Marte won’t be available next week anyways.

    I think that’s the route they’ll go unless someone from the current 40-man roster gets traded.

  242. Rich in NJ July 31st, 2010 at 11:08 am

    Doreen

    You better postpone the vacation because there could some waiver deals after the trading deadline.

  243. Crawdaddy July 31st, 2010 at 11:08 am

    Aceves on the 60 day DL gives them time as he’s been on the DL far longer than that amount of time.

  244. SAS July 31st, 2010 at 11:09 am

    Fran,

    Doreen’s vacation, may it be wonderful, will do nothing to help me with GTLU. Even when I don’t submit, but keep it to myself, I am wrong, wrong, and more wrong…lol

  245. Doreen July 31st, 2010 at 11:09 am

    Rich in NJ -

    Or I can take another vacation? :)

  246. benfica356 July 31st, 2010 at 11:10 am

    Ken_Rosenthal Expect the unexpected today. Source says #Nationals getting late interest from new teams on Dunn – “longshots” being explored. #MLB

  247. Giuseppe Franco July 31st, 2010 at 11:10 am

    # jpb173 July 31st, 2010 at 11:04 am

    Alfredo Aceves could be put on the 60 day DL to free up a spot on the 40 man roster.

    ——–

    That would work, too. I was thinking Aceves was already on the 60-day DL but he’s not.

    Either move would work. Aceves or Marte.

  248. Rich in NJ July 31st, 2010 at 11:10 am

    Marte last pitched on July 7

    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/.....yerId=4100

  249. Crawdaddy July 31st, 2010 at 11:10 am

    Marte last pitched on July 7th.

  250. Rich in NJ July 31st, 2010 at 11:11 am

    Doreen

    Sounds like a plan.

  251. Rich in NJ July 31st, 2010 at 11:11 am

    Let’s trade Berkman and Kearns for Dunn ;)

  252. Crawdaddy July 31st, 2010 at 11:11 am

    Due to the Cashman moves, I expect some team to blink today and acquire Dunn.

  253. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 11:11 am

    GF, has it been that long? Wow…….

  254. Rich in NJ July 31st, 2010 at 11:12 am

    If TB gets Dunn they better pay through the nose. I wanted him on the Yankees for years.

  255. SAS July 31st, 2010 at 11:14 am

    Question….

    Have the Sox or Rays done anything during the last week?

  256. CR9 July 31st, 2010 at 11:15 am

    SJ44

    First, wow, Peter Gammons actually knew the name of a highly touted prospect not on the Red Sox. (Tony)

    Second, he said that Tony would not be ready for next season. Is that true?

  257. Rich in NJ July 31st, 2010 at 11:15 am

    The Rays are supposedly getting Qualls.

  258. Betsy July 31st, 2010 at 11:16 am

    Rich, they already did.

    Rays have a hell of a pen…….unfortunately.

  259. Rich in NJ July 31st, 2010 at 11:17 am

    Oh, yup, the Rays are a threat.

  260. Doreen July 31st, 2010 at 11:17 am

    Could the Mets be in the mix for Dunn? Bay is on the DL.

  261. Fran the original July 31st, 2010 at 11:18 am

    SAS,
    With all of Girardi’s new weapons I expect to have trouble with GTLU too.

    Doreen,
    I think your vacation is coming a( a perfect time :)
    Enjoy.

  262. Bret The Hitman July 31st, 2010 at 11:21 am

    I wonder how much waiting has to do with concealing team plans until the last minute in order to reduce the time rival teams require to plan out well orchestrated retaliation moves.

  263. upstate kate July 31st, 2010 at 11:22 am

    yes, have a great trip Doreen!

  264. Anthony Murillo July 31st, 2010 at 11:23 am

    Qualls has like…an 8.29 ERA while pitching in the NL.

    Not too worried about the Rays getting him

  265. SAS July 31st, 2010 at 11:23 am

    Yes, I am shocked the Mets have done nothing. I almost feel bad for them, but that will never happen.

  266. SJ44 July 31st, 2010 at 11:28 am

    CR9,

    He will be ready to play next year. He won’t be ready for the majors next year. That’s what Peter meant.

    Chad Qualls has been awful this year. That’s a strange move for the Rays. I don’t see how he helps them.

Those advice additionally acted to be the good way to understand that other people online have the same dream the same as my own to figure out more and more related to this condition.

    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.
