Rodriguez: “Today there was no excuse”

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Podcast on Aug 15, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Yankees Royals BaseballJoe Girardi seemed to know the question was coming. He had, after all, heard it quite often this season. Why in the world do the Yankees struggle against pitchers they’ve never seen?

“I get tired of talking about it, I know that,” Girardi said. “You look for the ball, and you hit it. That’s the bottom line. I know when you haven’t seen a guy you aren’t exactly sure what he’s going to do to you, but we have a lot of good hitters in the lineup.”

Two of those good hitters are Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter. Combined, those two went 0-for-7 against Royals starter Bryan Bullington.

The only Yankee who had ever faced Bullington in the big leagues was Austin Kearns, who had one at-bat against him five years ago.

Jeter: “He threw the ball well, that’s the bottom line. Whether we’ve seen him once or a hundred times, the way he threw the ball today, he’s going to beat us.”

Rodriguez: “Today I don’t think that was the (problem). This guy was just very transparent. He was very aggressive, throwing four-seamers all over the strike zone. I think usually when you have a crafty lefty who can throw changeups and sink it and cuts it, (being unfamiliar) potentially could be an excuse. Today there was no excuse. He absolutely got the best of us.”

Here’s the postgame audio from those two.

    Every year, the Yankees have a game that humiliates them – last year it was the 22-4 Indians nightmare, a few years ago, it was the sweep by the Rockies. Each time, they went on a roll afterwards. Lets hope this games serves that purpose- a wake up call that they cant sleep walk into the playoffs.

    “The silver lining of this game is that they did not leave one single runner in scoring position.”

    :)

    There ya go!

    Here’s a little “feel better” blurb for those of you who are in pain about the fact that KC beat the Yankees 1-0 behind the pitching of a “journeyman”. It has to do with the Rays being no hit and the randomness of baseball. However, it is also transferrable to things like 1-0 shutouts. Some of us understood this before the lesson on randomness, but it might help those who don’t.

    No-hitters and perfect games (lefties Mark Buehrle and Braden didn’t just no-hit the Rays, they were perfect against them) are so rare that their occurrence is essentially random. Browse any list of the no-hitters in major league history and you’ll find a mix of Hall-of-Famers, All-Stars, journeymen, and scrubs, and random fluctuation in frequency from year-to-year. The word random often is misinterpreted as “infrequent,” but true randomness merely lacks a pattern. That doesn’t mean occurrences can’t clump up, as they have this year, or as they have with the Rays, only that what could be perceived as a pattern isn’t. So the Rays have been no-hit thrice in 306 days. It’s a record, and it is surely embarrassing to the Rays, but it doesn’t tell us anything about them as a team. They still have the fourth-best offense in baseball by runs scored and the fourth-best record in the major leagues.

    The Yankees still have the best offense in baseball by runs scored and the best record in the major leagues. What happened today doesn’t tell us anything about them as a team. Don’t try to force an interpretation onto a random event.

  3. Betsy August 15th, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    Jeter’s quote is kind of annoying, but it doesn’t bother me because focus and effort is never a question with him.

    In any case, why focus on Jeter and Alex? The whole team only had 2 hits combined so they were basically all 0 fers against this guy.

    Maybe the scouting on these pitchers isn’t very good…………but it probably just comes down to terrible execution. Of course it’s not just bad/unknown pitchers they aren’t hitting………

  4. blake August 15th, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    Yankees need to get on that roll and build a little cushion.

    After Sept 10 schedule : @Tex, @ TB, @Bal, TB, Bos, @ Tor, @ Bos. So thats 3 against Texas, 7 against the Rays, and 6 against Boston in the final 3 weeks of the season.

    The Schedule is fairly favorable until then though so the Yanks should have an opportunity to create some separation if they play well.

    Those 7 games against the Rays may decide the division but it would be nice to have a little leeway when it gets there.

  5. Betsy August 15th, 2010 at 10:35 pm

    Tough schedule, yes, but if they are a worthy team they will find a way to get through it. If they don’t win the division or make the playoffs, it won’t be because of the final few weeks – that’s an excuse.

  6. m August 15th, 2010 at 10:37 pm

    Well the main thing for me is we have gotten some oustanding pitching lately. Esp the bullpen.

    The Yankees are 3-5 in 1 run games since the break and 13-11 in 1 runs games on the year.

    This stale period is the same thing every other team has gone through this year and not as long as most. NYYs are also the only team to NOT lose more than 3 games in a row. They’ve had four such streaks. They’ve had one 7 game winning streak. I’d say that they’ve been pretty consistant all season

    GB, How are you feeling ???? I haven’t been around too much as of late, so I hope the reports were good from your last visit with Nurse Youkilis

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

    Evening Pat. Things went great. I’m clean as of now. Thanks for asking. Hope all is well with you and Mrs. M. I assumed that you were either taking everybody’s money on the golf course or just didn’t want to deal with the Three Stooges Convention that this place becomes during and after the games

  10. ET August 15th, 2010 at 10:39 pm

    “Those 7 games against the Rays may decide the division but it would be nice to have a little leeway when it gets there.”

    We better have leeway by the end of those games… because our final 9 games are against Boston and Toronto (6 of the 9 on the road)

    Whereas Tampa’s final 10 are Baltimore, Seattle, and KC (6 of them at home for them)

    Going to be awfully tough to make up games if needed during the final 10 games, especially if Boston is mathematically alive and playing hard.

  11. Doreen August 15th, 2010 at 10:41 pm

    Hey, GB7.

    Went to Trenton tonight. Saw Noesi pitch a gem. 7 innings, 2 hits, 9 Ks, no walks. I liked watching him pitch. Good presence on the mound, kept the ball down, nice slender build.

    Not impressed with JB Cox, who relieved in the 8th – he looks uncomfortable on the mound – constant adjustments (hat, belt, pants).

    Pope got the save, but was mediocre.

    Rivera caught and had a good game and he and Vecchionacci drove in runs. Other run scored on throwing error.

  12. Yank1 August 15th, 2010 at 10:42 pm

    Pretty tough Toronto-Chicago road trip after this homestand as well… they need to finally do some damage at home rather than play .500 there like they have for the last 2.5 months…

  13. trisha - true pinstriped blue August 15th, 2010 at 10:42 pm

    GB, the voice of reason. You don’t know how I look forward to your post post-mortem posts! Very much like some others of us here, you don’t feel the need to get out a dissecting kit after each game (or worse yet, while a game is going on). You have a great ability to apply a long-term perspective on the game; I would call that ability a baseball fan’s best friend. But that it were catchy!!!
    Thanks for weighing in.

  14. blake August 15th, 2010 at 10:44 pm

    Betsy,

    Actually if they don’t make the playoffs it will probably have to be because of those final few weeks because the head to head matchups will likely be the only way the Sox could make up the ground they need in the limited amount of time they have.

    Barring a pretty big collapse, the Yankees are going to make the playoffs. The question is whether it will be as the division champion or wild card team and that’s still pretty much up for grabs. Facts are facts, the Yankees finishing schedule is tougher than Tampa’s so it would be beneficial for them to play well until then to give themselves some cushion to compensate for that.

    It doesn’t make much difference in some years but the path to the WS will likely be more difficult as the wild card team this year.

  15. MTU August 15th, 2010 at 10:46 pm

    GB-

    I checked in after I returned from my hike and it smelled like rotten egg in here.

    You’d think someone had stolen some people’s last dime.

    Tasmanian Devil has more charm than some of the posters.

  16. Captain Clutch August 15th, 2010 at 10:47 pm

    This home stand is the perfect time to get back on a roll again. Unfortunately it starts off with the dead arm/brain pitching tomorrow. These are 2 teams that aren’t very good and the Yanks need to do some damage.

    Also I hope during this Tigers series the fans remember that Damon isn’t on the Yanks anymore. A nice ovation during his first at bat is fine but I hope the stupid fans don’t cheer for him if he gets a big hit against the Yanks. That was absolutely ridiculous when they cheered after Matsui’s homerun and the Yanks were getting blown out.

  17. GreenBeret7 August 15th, 2010 at 10:48 pm

    Doreen, that’s great. I bounced between the Scranton and Trenton games. I like Noesi, much more than Nova, who’s not bad. Noesi had a bit of a down period, but, he was outstanding tonight. Not much offense, but, that’s good. They’ve moved the best ones up. Ryan Pope had been a starter, but, he just doesn’t have enough pitches. If he gets anywhere, it’s in long relief. He was exceptional when he pitched for savannah College Of Art And Design. My guess is that he flames out. Romine has been in a long slump, too. He gets just enough hits to stay at .270. He’ll come around, though. What did you think of Rene Rivera behind the dish?

  18. Betsy August 15th, 2010 at 10:48 pm

    Blake, I don’t disagree, but my point is that if they are a good team, the Yankees will be ok during that rough stretch. If they aren’t and they lose most of the games, then that tells me they really aren’t worthy. Good teams don’t care about schedule – they just go out and get the job done. Those teams have to play the Yankees – not easy for them. If they beat the Yankees, then they are better than them…….So my point is, no excuses. This is the schedule – deal with it. As to putting separation between them and the Rays, they can win all they want, but if the Rays keep winning, then they can’t put separation between them. I like the fact that the Yankees still have games with the Rays………..this is how it’s supposed to be. If they can’t beat the Rays head to head, then they aren’t worthy of winning the division

  19. Bo knows August 15th, 2010 at 10:51 pm

    But, but, the Yankees have been doing this all year. The big overswing. They’ll scuffle along until they get to the mid relievers and then they’re in business. You heard them today – they ran out of innings. Problems with the changeup boys – if you’re swinging from the heels it’s tough to adjust. The pitching has been unbelievable because most of the time they get no cushion until the sixth, seventh inning. Today, the wind was blowing in, anyone adjust? no. Complaining it’s dark because you’ve got your head up your butt is zero sum.

  20. GreenBeret7 August 15th, 2010 at 10:52 pm

    Thanks, trisha. I just never see the point in trashing somebody that on their worst days can do his job better than me. I get frustrated at times because they are so much better than they sometimes show, but, I see no reason for the rants, raves and name calling. I save that for the idiots and trolls. Hope all is going well with you, lately, Doll.

  21. Doreen August 15th, 2010 at 10:55 pm

    GB7 -

    I love Rivera. He’s solid back there and the last two games I went to he caught. He shows decent offense, too.

    I’ve seen Pope pitch almost every time I’ve seen Trenton play in person! It’s so odd. Sometimes in relief and sometimes starting. He’s never really awful, but he’s not really special. Not after you see someone like Noesi pitch or Graham (is it Stoneburner?).

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

    I just stopped coming on during the games for the most part, MTU. I may drop a post every so often, but, seldom read the stupidity of Stuart Little, Little Ricky Ricardo from Perth Amboy, NJ and the others. They make zero sense anyway. It becomes a sewer. Even last night, until the Yanks started reaching the fountains, it was the same BS. after that, the team was the greatest thing sincestrawberry ice cream and chocolate syrup.

  23. MTU August 15th, 2010 at 11:01 pm

    Yeah. I don’t do game threads. What little bit of sanity I have left I want to keep.

    I’ll check the fruit loops in the morning for coded messages as to the Yankees future.

    Have a good night. See you Manana. :)

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

    Yeah, Stonebirner. I haven’t seen him, but, I want to. I’m a little surprised that they haven’t brought up Mesa to see if he can do anything. Great outfielder with a Dave winfield kind of arm. He frustrates with the strikeouts but the power/speed combination will amaze you. Sort of an Alfonso Soriano with defense.

  25. Doreen August 15th, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    Mesa sounds like an exciting player.

    What’s up with Christian and Snyder? They’re really not prospects.

  26. trisha - true pinstriped blue August 15th, 2010 at 11:07 pm

    “I just never see the point in trashing somebody that on their worst days can do his job better than me.’

    Absolutely! In addition, I make it a point of never putting a heavier mantel on someone than I’m willing to put on myself. Since I am extremely forgiving of myself when I don’t have my best going on, I certainly don’t intend to be harshly judgemental of others who may not have their best going on. What I don’t want done to me I’m not going to do to others! It’s not about skill or lack of skill, it’s about being human.

    I am so happy to read about your clean bill of health!!! Other things (like Yankee losses for instance) become so secondary to things such as that. I have my life under control in terms of my erstwhile stalker, so that makes everything else extremely handleable.

    :)

  27. GreenBeret7 August 15th, 2010 at 11:10 pm

    Doreen, Christian is the basic career minor leaguer…about 30. Good outfielder, not great. Hits a few homers, outstanding speed. He’s sort of starting over, trying to rebuild his arm after surgery. He played for the Yanks in about 20 games back in 2008. Stole about 9-10 bases and had a couple of big hits.

    Snyder stopped hitting after Charleston. He plays multiple positions and all of them badly. Not much power, ok speed. He’s just filler as far as I’m concerned.

  28. blake August 15th, 2010 at 11:12 pm

    Betsy,

    I can agree with you there. I’m just saying ideally speaking it would be nice to have some leeway not only because it increases the chances of coming out on top, but because with a veteran team Girardi could continue to rest guys and line up his rotation for the post season. If it comes down to it I still have faith the Yanks can win those tough games if they need to. Should be a good race down the stretch.

  29. Doreen August 15th, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    GB7 -

    I thought I remembered Christian being on the Yankees at some point, but couldn’t place it.

    These guys must just love playing baseball. It can’t be an easy life. And some things about going to minor league games really get my goat. People! They rank on the players – and they don’t even bother to look at the scorecard for names – they jeer by number. Constant nagging for baseballs (foul balls). The stuff that’s fun for the crowd (hot dog races, hoola hoops, etc) that goes on between innings – I guess they get used to it. :?

  30. GreenBeret7 August 15th, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    That sounds like the way to go, Trisha. I’m not quite that “humane”. I have no tolerance for intentional stupidity. The other thing that burns me is those that think they have to talk above what they think is everyone’s intelligence level. Christ, this is a sports board, not a Mensa board for Einsteins. I’m happy that someone or something has the stalker under control. Now, IF ONLY….

  31. Betsy August 15th, 2010 at 11:17 pm

    Blake I agree………and believe me, I’d like to have some cushion as well. I’m not overly confident as you know, but I guess all we can

  32. Betsy August 15th, 2010 at 11:18 pm

    is wait and see – it’s true reality tv

  33. GreenBeret7 August 15th, 2010 at 11:22 pm

    Doreen, Christian was undrafted and spent years in the Independent Leagues before the Yanks signed him. I always thought that he was a better, or, at least smarter talent than Gardner. They played together for quite a while in the system, batting 1-2 usually. I think that Christian’s age was against him getting more of a chance. He’s also from Lincoln, NE, went to the Missouri state and Auburn to earn his degree. i keep hoping that he gets another shot as the 4th outfielder.

    GB, no golf for me yet, as I have another surgerical proceedure coming up…..This time around it’ll be to re-route a pinched nerve behind the groin muscle……..Minor stuff compared to all the other dice and slice jobs…..Still hoping for March in Tampa….Has Tin Cup been around ??

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

    Hope you get the nerve problem fixed well and rob the other golfers, Pat. Yeah, Randy popped in this afternoon. God, he’s perfect for ragging on. Funny guy. Besides that, he’s as sick as I am. Glad that I’m not the only demented one on here. He, you, MTU, Maine, etc. make this place fun until the idiots show up

  35. Doreen August 15th, 2010 at 11:32 pm

    GB7 -

    You’ve gotta really feel for a guy that is sticking with it that long and who really does have some talent. Maybe he gets another shot, but it won’t be what he originally hoped for. Then again, he must be doing what he loves to do.

    On a lighter note, I loved the uniforms the Thunder wore tonight. The pinstripes, but the top was sleeveless over a dark blue under-shirt. Looked really good. :)

  36. GreenBeret7 August 15th, 2010 at 11:41 pm

    Doreen:

    You mentioned the hotdog races….too funny. Have you watched the D-Back races/ They have the characatures of their old time players like randy Johnson and they race hotdogs and presidents. The other stuff I can do without, but, fans love it…especially the kids.

    I think that Rene Rivera gets the next call before Moeller. I was surprised that he’s only 28 and was a 2nd round draft pick from the Mariners. He’s got some major league experience.

    As for Christian, he’s a really nice young guy, especially with the little kids. Some day, I hope that he gets a coaching kob. He seems like a baseball lifer, because he enjoys it. It certainly can’t be the money at that level.

  37. SAS August 15th, 2010 at 11:51 pm

    Hope I am not considered one of the idiots….

    There was a problem with computer all day.

    I do find it puzzling that the Yankees have so much trouble beating pitchers they haven’t seen before. This has been going on for a long time now, not just this year.

  38. Doreen August 15th, 2010 at 11:55 pm

    GB7

    Rivera would be a good choice over Moeller, I think. My husband was impressed with him, too.

    A lot of the “kids” down there, or maybe nto a lot but a surprising number, are closer to 30 than 20.

  39. GreenBeret7 August 16th, 2010 at 12:07 am

    No, SAS, you are excused from the “idiot category”. I was referring to the daily whiners that start at pitch#1 and continue through the end. Of the Yanks win, they’re the biggest boosters of the game’s star player.

  40. GreenBeret7 August 16th, 2010 at 12:09 am

    SAS, For years, even back in the 50s and 60s, NYY have had that issue. I have no idea why. The next time they see him, they’ll mash him.

  41. SAS August 16th, 2010 at 12:12 am

    GB,

    Thanks and lol, I know I was there, if not quite as interested during those years.

    When AJ pitches a game like today, he deserves a little something for his efforts….like a win.

  42. GreenBeret7 August 16th, 2010 at 12:13 am

    dreen, the fans in Charleston and savannah bring the kids and that’s where they have supper. When Torre Tyson was managing the Charleston team, he made sure that the players were friendly with the kids and all fans, but, especially the kids. I think a lot of that had to do with his growing up in ML clubhouses and how players like McCarver, Gibson and Torre treated the kids, which supposedly wasn’t the best. Tyson’s dad played for the Cardinals for years. That’s how he came to be named Torre.

  43. GreenBeret7 August 16th, 2010 at 12:15 am

    ***Doreen***, the fans in Charleston

  44. Melk Man August 16th, 2010 at 12:20 am

    CJ Wilson = Red Sox killer

    Beat them 3 times this year, twice in Fenway. 21 innings, 11 Hits, 2 ER, 21 Ks

  45. trisha - true pinstriped blue August 16th, 2010 at 12:47 am

    SAS, according to Jeter: “He threw the ball well, that’s the bottom line. Whether we’ve seen him once or a hundred times, the way he threw the ball today, he’s going to beat us.”

    Maybe people need to forget all about the “we’ve never seen him before” stuff and realize that it just might have had to do with the way the kid pitched!

  46. SAS August 16th, 2010 at 1:02 am

    Trisha,

    It is not just this guy today. It happens all the time and for years. When the Yankees see a new kid up from the minors, the pitcher looks like Cy Young to them. I know you are always upbeat, but reality says you have to beat these guys and not lose games that should be won.

    Now maybe we will find out this guy is a Cy Young winner. Then my apologies, but it happens too often.

    The Yankees have not been playing well lately. If we are going to the playoffs, the team has win and keep winning. They have had some tough competition this year. No one is more of a fan than I am and I don’t trash the Y’s, but facts are facts.

  47. m August 16th, 2010 at 1:25 am

    The Yankees aren’t playing well, but IMO they are the best team in baseball. As such, I have confidence before each and every game that they can win. It doesn’t always work out. But it doesn’t shake my belief that can win the next game, too. It’s just less complicated that way.

  48. SAS August 16th, 2010 at 1:40 am

    m,

    I shake off the loses too, but there are only about 50 games left. Therefore, with the Rays, Sox, W.Sox and Twins on their heels, they can not afford to have many games like today’s game and expect just because they are the best team, they will win go to the playoffs.

  49. m August 16th, 2010 at 2:01 am

    Judging from Chad’s characterization of the mood in the clubhouse, the team is probably more disappointed than LoHud is.

    If they don’t make the playoffs (a scenario that is extremely unlikely to me), then there’s nothing we (as fans) could have done to change the outcome. Until they are mathematically eliminated I will believe they can win. If they don’t make it, I won’t slit my wrist or act like I will if Jeter grounds into another DP. Or if Gardner doesn’t steal second. Or if Granderson strikes out again.

    We won last season, and I refuse to act the part of the entitled Yankee fan that gets angry when we don’t win. Or if we don’t win it all. After all, it’s baseball. Random s••• happens.

  50. GreenBeret7 August 16th, 2010 at 2:04 am

    This thing with bad/unknown or average pitchers has been going on forever with the Yankees. Back in 1952, a pitcher who had a 5-19 record at the end of the season threw a no hitter against the yankees. Odd season, 5 wins, 3 shutouts and two of them were no hitters.

    If the name Trucks rings a bell, he also pitched for the Yanks. Came from a very talented family. His son was one of the founding fathers of the Allman Brothers Band, Drummer Butch Trucks, and his nephew is Derek Trucks, guitarist of the Allman Brothers Band.

  51. RYUKINGDOM August 16th, 2010 at 4:35 am

    My 55 years watching Yankee baseball the team makes the lamest excuses ever. Even our clutch hitter Granderson (choke) goes 3-0 leading off the inning and is given the green light????

  52. Nick in SF August 16th, 2010 at 5:52 am

    Not only was I wrong in my prediction that the Yanks would win, I was wrong about it on the internet.

    For shame. :cry:

    So true. I know that the Yankees will probably loose about 60 games this season. But there are some that I expect they should win. Going into KC I expected the Yanks to take 3 of 4. A split in KC is not good. These are the teams the Yankees need to beat.

    What really baffles me is the Yankees inability to hit pitchers they have never seen before. Seems like if every team brought up minor league starters to face the Yankees, the Yankees would have the worst record in baseball.

    This is the start of HOPE week, which brought the team good luck last year, so I am HOPEful that happens again :)

    trying to take a positive from yesterday’s game…and it has to be AJ’s pitching. Despite some early trouble and dealing w/ sloppy play, he kept it together and only gave up one run. It seems likely that he pitches on Friday, the game we are going to see, so I hope he keeps up the good work!
