    Cool

  2. Rishi August 19th, 2010 at 10:19 am

    who could he be there for…

  3. rodg12 August 19th, 2010 at 10:19 am

    Pssssssh. Guess I should have waited to take a crack at GTLU for about another 5 minutes…

  4. Erin August 19th, 2010 at 10:20 am

    Interesting

    DFA Gaudin? DL ARod?

    —————-

    Those would seem to be the most obvious choices.

  8. Erica in NY August 19th, 2010 at 10:23 am

    The arrival of Nunez definitely doesn’t bode well for the health of A-Rod

    Then again, Gaudin really did stink last night

    This is a tough call

  9. GreenBeret7 August 19th, 2010 at 10:23 am

    Nunez for Jeter. Jeter’s bat is going on the DL.

  10. Erica in NY August 19th, 2010 at 10:23 am

    Chad,

    I saw this with no malice whatsoever, but you may want to give this post a proofread

  11. Rishi August 19th, 2010 at 10:24 am

    BloggingBombers Eduardo Nunez is here. ARod to DL? Stay tuned.

    And in an irony alert, that should have been “say” not “saw”

    Thats what I get for being grammar Nazi!

  13. Mike_Boston August 19th, 2010 at 10:24 am

    Hard to see a low grade strain of the calf being a DL, has to be Gaudin. Chad even said he was in the clubhouse for only a few minutes, he probably got the news and left, no?

  14. Chuck58 August 19th, 2010 at 10:25 am

    Yup. Joey G’s Da Man! hahaha Better luck tomorrow.

    Erica, glad today is better. I’ve always liked Johnny D and probably always will. Sometimes he doesn’t think before he speaks, but that’s part of who he is. Speaking out on Gardy’s slide? He’s just backing up his teammate. Like Gardy said, if Johnny was still in pinstripes, he’d be cheering on Brett’s hard (but fair) slide. No worries here.

  15. ChuckKnoblog August 19th, 2010 at 10:26 am

    A-Rod is soft.

  16. NYY626 - Andy in 2011 August 19th, 2010 at 10:26 am

    oh boy, this is not good :(

  17. GreenBeret7 August 19th, 2010 at 10:26 am

    Jeter’s bat is going on the DL with badly strained wood grain.

  18. SJ44 August 19th, 2010 at 10:27 am

    Can’t see them calling up a position player to replace a pitcher.

    Especially since the bullpen is short today.

    Must be about Arod or another position player.

  19. rodg12 August 19th, 2010 at 10:28 am

    Maybe Berkman to the DL?

  20. yankee21 August 19th, 2010 at 10:28 am

    My guess is Arod on DL, if it was Berkman or Swisher then Miranda or Curtis would be called up. I agree very doubtful it is Gaudin that has been let go at this point.

  21. pat August 19th, 2010 at 10:28 am

    Girardi not meeting the media until 11:30 so you have an hour to spin things out of control. :wink:

  22. upstate kate August 19th, 2010 at 10:29 am

    from an article on mlb.com

    Worth noting
    Pettitte, Jorge Posada, A.J. Burnett, Hughes, Berkman, Javier Vazquez, Boone Logan and Austin Kearns, along with Yankees coaches Dave Eiland, Mick Kelleher and Rob Thomson and former Yankees pitcher David Cone, will be paired with special-needs children from the Beautiful People organization in a baseball game on the field at Yankee Stadium following Thursday’s game.

  23. GreenBeret7 August 19th, 2010 at 10:29 am

    I’d think that there’s a better chance that Berkman goes on the DL for his ankle than Rodriguez.

  24. Phil in Columbus August 19th, 2010 at 10:30 am

    If it is Nunez coming up wouldn’t it have to be because a position player is going on the DL? He did play 3b for SWB last night. Haven’t followed him close enough, but aren’t most of his starts at SS?

  25. pat August 19th, 2010 at 10:30 am

    How about DFA Gaudin and activate Nunez until Alex comes back and then send him down and activate Aceves in a few days?

  26. Erin August 19th, 2010 at 10:30 am

    Could it be Berkman going on the DL?

  27. Patrick from CT August 19th, 2010 at 10:30 am

    Let’s hope it’s Berkman and not Arod…

  28. Erica in NY August 19th, 2010 at 10:30 am

    rodg12 August 19th, 2010 at 10:28 am
    Maybe Berkman to the DL?

    ***********

    That would not mean good things for my GTLU submission

    They said Berkman was available to PH last night so I am doubtful.

  29. clar5 August 19th, 2010 at 10:31 am

    I’ve had both Anatomy and Physiology and spent a week on sports injuries. Arod if he wraps up his calf could potentially DH. Berkman shouldn’t even be standing that much (could make it worse).

  30. Erica in NY August 19th, 2010 at 10:31 am

    Patrick from CT August 19th, 2010 at 10:30 am
    Let?s hope it?s Berkman and not Arod?
    *********

    Actually, I would rather hope its the DFA of Gaudin

  31. GreenBeret7 August 19th, 2010 at 10:32 am

    The Yanks have at least 3 replacements for 1st base not counting Berkman.

  32. YankeeBlue222 August 19th, 2010 at 10:33 am

    Other than last night, Gaudin was pitching pretty well in the mop-up role. I’d hate to see him go.

  33. Doreen August 19th, 2010 at 10:33 am

    Since Gaudin would not be available today anyway or probably not, it could be they DFA’d him and brought up Nunez because with Alex unavailable they are short an infielder. At least for a few days. This way Jeter can also be rested if necessary.

  34. MTU August 19th, 2010 at 10:33 am

    Erica-

    You have an hour to set up and conclude GTDFA. :)

  35. rodg12 August 19th, 2010 at 10:34 am

    # GreenBeret7 August 19th, 2010 at 10:29 am

    I’d think that there’s a better chance that Berkman goes on the DL for his ankle than Rodriguez.
    —————————————-
    Would make sense since he’s been out longer. Bringing up Nunez also allows them to DH ARod for the next few days without being some hamstrung on the bench.

  36. Doreen August 19th, 2010 at 10:34 am

    My gut’s telling me, though, that Alex is on the DL.

  37. Web August 19th, 2010 at 10:34 am

    I think naming your kids after sports figures/arenas is risky. Didn’t actor Kevin James name his son Shea after Shea Stadium? Then what happened….they tore the stadium down. Also need to be careful of those players who end up tainted as the years go on….like naming your kid Alex, Barry, or Roger. Or even outside of phd’s. What if the player is a complete loser in their personal lives and end up getting arrested or something.

    Interesting to see Nunez. Wonder what’s going on. Excited, though. Saw him play a few weeks ago. Kid’s got potential.

  38. Patrick from CT August 19th, 2010 at 10:34 am

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

    This would be the best case…

  39. CountryClub August 19th, 2010 at 10:34 am

    Don’t get caught up in a pitcher possibly going down for a position player. This could be very short term since Ace will be ready to come back in a couple of days. With Arod hurt, the Yanks are short in the infield. When Arod is ready, they send Nunez back down and bring Ace off the DL.

  40. ron August 19th, 2010 at 10:35 am

    This is not a good sign unless nunez is replacing pena wich doesn’t make sense.

    Something wrong with arod?

  41. GreenBeret7 August 19th, 2010 at 10:35 am

    Nunez is mostly a shortstop, but has played both 3rd and 2nd bases this year and in other years. Not his greatest spots, but, he can play them. I’m a little surprised since he left the game the other noght in the 1st inning with a head injury.

  42. CountryClub August 19th, 2010 at 10:35 am

    Doreen beat me to it.

  43. Jason Voorhees August 19th, 2010 at 10:35 am

    Maybe DHing Arod and Girardi wants to spell Pena. DFA Gaudin. Unlikely scenario. But one can hope.

  44. Erica in NY August 19th, 2010 at 10:37 am

    Doreen August 19th, 2010 at 10:34 am

    I do not like your gut!

  45. michaelpr August 19th, 2010 at 10:37 am

    I’m sure its DFA Gaudin to call up Nunez. I think they want to give Nunez a shot anyway. Could even be a trade bait situation. But I think they want to give Arod another day or two and don’t want to play Pena four days in a row.

    Gaudin is a decent pitcher. But he’s behind Aceves, Mosely, Mitre and Nova on the spot starter / long reliever depth chart.

  46. Fran the original August 19th, 2010 at 10:38 am

    Maybe the Yanks just want an extra position player. With Pena at 3rd for a few days there is no back up for Derek or Robbie.

    Web – point well taken, and I’ve thought it all through. Most of the names I’m going with are old school Yanks. Gehrig, Marris, Jackson, Chase, and O’neill are personal favs. All as middle names of course.. I’m not that much of a risk taker lol.

    A woman in my office named her grandson Shea. Jose Reyes signed a bat for him to welcome him into the world. I don’t like Reyes, but I thought that was pretty awesome for him to do

  50. ron August 19th, 2010 at 10:39 am

    I am with pat on this one.

    Nunez up to cover arod’s injury,dfa gaudin,nunez down,ace up.

  51. GreenBeret7 August 19th, 2010 at 10:40 am

    Trade bait? The Yankees aren’t going to get very much for a back-up infielder like Pena.

  52. pat August 19th, 2010 at 10:40 am

    You’re supposed to panic, not be logical!

  53. Chuck58 August 19th, 2010 at 10:40 am

    GB, what happened to Nunez’ head?
    Beaned? Hit by a bad hop grounder? Other?

  54. Doreen August 19th, 2010 at 10:41 am

    Erica -

    :lol:

    My gut is about 50/50.

  55. Joe from Long Island August 19th, 2010 at 10:41 am

    Alex was walking around the dugout last night. If his injury – which was described as day to day, after all – worsened to require the DL, I don’t think he would have been walking around nonchalantly. And there was no hint of anything last night.

    Berkman’s ankle is described as really swollen, more so than anyone expected. I think that might be it. Nunez for Berkman.

    Chipper Jones named his son Shea because he liked hitting in that ballpark so much.

  57. blake August 19th, 2010 at 10:42 am

    Sounded like Arods injury was minor…hopefully it still is. My guess would be Berkman to the DL.

  58. TheKiid August 19th, 2010 at 10:42 am

    id BUY that for a dollar.

  59. ron August 19th, 2010 at 10:43 am

    They wan’t to be carefull with arod & with pena at 3rd base we have no backup infielder.

    Ace is ready to come back now so someone has to go,most likely gaudin.

    So nunez covers til arod is ok then ace is back.

    My question is does nova take mosely’s next start?

  60. Joe from Long Island August 19th, 2010 at 10:44 am

    I don’t they’d replace a pitcher – Gaudin – with a hitter. DFA’ing Gaudin is a separate issue, but I think they’d replace him with a pitcher, especially given the usage last night.

  63. CR9 August 19th, 2010 at 10:45 am

    Please dont be Arod, Please dont be Arod.

    Irreverent

    I didn’t know that. However, even so, the fact that Kay uses that moniker is disturbing. But since it came out of Minny, it also either shows how little respect the rest of baseball – in this case, Minny – has for the Yankees organization or how much respect to tailor a nickname for their 2 after 2 Yankees greats.

  64. jpb173 August 19th, 2010 at 10:46 am

    Is there any way the Yankees can put either Chad Gaudin or Sergio Mitre on the 15 day DL? If so, they could bring the guy off the DL after the rosters expand on Sept. 1st. That would allow the Yankees to bring up Eduardo Nunez for a few days and then send him back down in a few days when either Andy Pettitte or Alfredo Aceves is ready to come off the DL.

    I guess I’m saying that Eduardo Nunez doesn’t necessarily have to be here for the entire 15 days that someone is on the DL…just a few days to give either ARod or Jeter a break.

  65. blake August 19th, 2010 at 10:46 am

    Any news on whether Javy is going to make his next start…I’m assuming he will be since nothing has been said on the subject?

  66. PagsandRags August 19th, 2010 at 10:47 am

    Maybe Berkman to the DL?

    ————————————————

    If it was Berkman don’t you think Juan Miranda would be called up as his replacement? I think Nunez is here today to play in today’s game for Jete. I think Aceves might be back sooner than later. DFA Gaudin, play Nunez today, send him down tonight and call Aceves back up. Someone needs to be moved off the 40 man to get Aceves back on and my guess would be it will be Gaudin.

  67. pat August 19th, 2010 at 10:47 am

    BrianCoz Cashman said they are making a player move but haven’t talked to player yet. Asked if someone going to dl, said they need to make move first

  70. Mike_Boston August 19th, 2010 at 10:49 am

    I’ll repeat, why else would Gaudin be in the clubhouse for only a few minutes before leaving while no one else was there yet? To me it means he was called in early by Joe to get the news, makes sense that he wouldn’t want to stick around after.

  71. austinmac August 19th, 2010 at 10:49 am

    I think it is likely Berkman to the DL. This move would allow AROD to DH while not having to have Pena be in the lineup. This can also be a move just for a backup infielder which the team lacks if AROD can’t play in the field.

    My guess is that Arod will be DH’n in the next series so they need another infielder.
    Berkman to the DL, Nunez up from AAA to backup Jeter, Pena, and Cano. We don’t need to see Thames or Cervelli at 3rd again do we?
    Gaudan DFA and replaced by Ace today aswell.
