Three called up from Triple-A

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Aug 31, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Nothing official from the Yankees, but I’m hearing Greg Golson, Chad Moeller and Jonathan Albaladejo are the first wave of September call-ups. No word on a 40-man move for Moeller.

    A PR and defensive replacement, another C, and another arm for the pen.

    Three logical moves.

  2. jesusmonterofordh August 31st, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    no montero, d@mm !!!!!!!!!

  3. ac1 August 31st, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    plus berkman will be back tomorrow and alex back this weekend. Thinking Rene Rivera would be better than Moeller maybe. Can Rivera hit?

  4. RiveraBlues August 31st, 2010 at 10:29 pm

    Is it too early to Stick a Fork into the suxs because I am ready to call it!

  5. Boston Jim August 31st, 2010 at 10:29 pm

    Anybody receive their baseballs yet?

  6. Betsy August 31st, 2010 at 10:29 pm

    Glad to see Moeller up – less Cervelli

  7. jpb173 August 31st, 2010 at 10:30 pm

    Golson doesn’t need to bring a bat or glove with him…all he will do for the Yankees is pinch run.

  8. SJ44 August 31st, 2010 at 10:31 pm

    Moeller is a better C than Rivera.

    Montero was never going to be called up.

  9. jpb173 August 31st, 2010 at 10:32 pm

    no montero, d@mm !!!!!!!!!

    —————————————————————————

    There simply isn’t enough room on the 40 man roster for a 20 year old. In the offseason the Yankees have to prtotect too many players from the Rule 5 draft and Montero doesn’t need to be protected, yet.

  10. ac1 August 31st, 2010 at 10:32 pm

    golson can hit.

  11. blake August 31st, 2010 at 10:32 pm

    Go ahead and stick the fork in…the BoSox are finished and will soon begin their master plan for outsmarting everyone in 2011….

  12. Rob B August 31st, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    By the way: in case anybody missed it Baltimore is the first and only team (so far) to be completely eliminated from post season play.

    “A PR and defensive replacement”

    Zillo is out? :(

    Phil Hughes (16-6) continues to have a charmed season. A great start has ebbed into unevenness, yet the Yankees continue to give him better run support than any other pitcher in baseball. They are averaging 8.14 runs in every nine of his innings pitched.

    Hughes went five innings and allowed two runs, though he was neither sharp nor economical. He gave up four hits, walked five and struck out one, throwing 98 pitches in the process. He is averaging just over five innings per start, far less length than the Yanks need or expect from him.

    “He got into long counts and they fouled pitches off and he eventually made some mistakes,” Girardi said of his last start in Toronto. “(He needs to) get some quick outs, use all his pitches tonight and compete at a high level.”

    That didn’t happen.

    *******

    Whoa, Roger – I doubt the Yankees expect a 24 year old nearing the end of a long year to give them length

  15. jesusmonterofordh August 31st, 2010 at 10:35 pm

    well a guy can dream can he

    besides you can find a spot if the yanks wanted too

  16. BJK August 31st, 2010 at 10:35 pm

    Moeller isn’t going to take much playing time away from Cervelli.

    He’s coming up as a third catcher. We’ll see him late in games.

    Instead of trashing Cervelli, let’s hope he finds whatever he lost again because he’ll be on the post-season roster. Hopefully, we won’t need him to play much.

  17. G. Love August 31st, 2010 at 10:35 pm

    (repost)

    Can’t wait for Gammons to write the obit for the 2010 Red Sox. By the time we’re finished reading it, you’ll think they won 4 championships this year.

    They will get the most praise a 3rd place, possibly 4th place team will ever see in the history of baseball.

    Mark my words on that.

  18. austinmac August 31st, 2010 at 10:36 pm

    I watched Chapman pitch his first inning. Wow. His fastball was between 98-103 with a number at or over 100. Plus, he had a wicked slider and control of both pitches. He is something to see.

  19. Bronx Jeers August 31st, 2010 at 10:36 pm

    Phil’s got a good sense of his issues.

    Please – who’s trashing Cervelli? He’s been awful, so yeah – I hope Moeller plays some.

  22. Doreen August 31st, 2010 at 10:38 pm

    Nick in SF -

    Nice story about Debbie Harry. My Blondie stuff is on vinyl. Maybe now that I’m done with GTLU for a while I can get back to transferring some of my vinyl to mp3. Sounds like a good project.

    ***

    3 good call-ups.

  23. michaelpr August 31st, 2010 at 10:38 pm

    Russo would be another good addition. He can play INF and OF. And on days where there is a blowout you could rest Arod, Jeter and Cano with Pena, Nunez and Russo.

  24. GreenBeret7 August 31st, 2010 at 10:39 pm

    Moeller wouldn’t have been my choice as the third catcher, but, Cashman didn’t seek me out on this particular decision.

    You’re here quite a lot. Surely you’ve noticed there’s been quite a bit of Cervelli hating going on. So, yeah, lots of people have.

    “They will get the most praise a 3rd place, possibly 4th place team will ever see in the history of baseball.”

    But, as the battered-and-bruised Red Sox struggle to remain in the playoff race, principal owner John Henry believes the work of manager Terry Francona and general manager Theo Epstein should not be overlooked.

    “It’s remarkable Tito has juggled 48 players,” Henry wrote in an e-mail yesterday, “and remarkable that Theo was able to provide him with that many replacements capable of keeping us in the hunt.”

    If the Red Sox are able to remain in playoff contention in September, Francona may well receive consideration for the AL Manager of the Year Award, voted on by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, although Ron Washington (Texas Rangers) and Ron Gardenhire (Minnesota Twins) also figure to merit votes.

  28. Yogi Mantle August 31st, 2010 at 10:40 pm

    Wow, Pittsburg has a -268 run differential. :shock:

  29. Rob B August 31st, 2010 at 10:41 pm

    “So Cleveland still has a chance! lol.”

    They just have to hope they lose less than 9 games for the rest of the season and that nobody above them wins anymore. ;)

    Nah. No chance. But they haven’t been “officially” eliminated quite yet.

  30. Betsy August 31st, 2010 at 10:41 pm

    Does this make any sense?

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09.....nkees.html

    But their three home runs cloaked another inefficient start by Phil Hughes, whose night was best evaluated not by how many runs he gave up — two — but by his erratic control and high pitch count, both of which triggered Gaudin’s early (and frequent) activity.
    ******

    I may be mistaken, but I thought the idea is to keep runs off the scoreboard?

  31. blake August 31st, 2010 at 10:41 pm

    “Can’t wait for Gammons to write the obit for the 2010 Red Sox. By the time we’re finished reading it, you’ll think they won 4 championships this year.”

    Oh I’m sure….he’ll talk up injuries and how the Sox overcame great adversity to finish in 3rd place and how any other team in baseball would have folded and stopped competing but not the Red Sox…..then it’ll lead into Theo mastermind plan to get back on top next year.

    CB,

    Epic poems will be written about the 2010 Red Sox and their Sisyphusian feats.

    Meanwhile the fact that Yankees win with a career worst Jeter who is probably playing hurt, Arod forced to play hurt and sapped of power and spending time on the DL, Posada on and off the DL, Andy Pettitte on the DL, AJ & Javy disintegrating in the rotation, Joba a shell of his former self, Tex unable to hit for the first few months of the year, Granderson injured and lost offensively for most of the year, Nick Johnson breaking down sooner than most thought for the season…..but the Yankees haven’t had to face any adversity this year….

    For all the ranting and raving that went on about how many question marks the Yanks have with their rotation (after all, I hear the Sox and Rays rotations are much better) and the inconsistency with the offense, on Aug 1st, the Yanks were one up on the Rays and 6.5 up on the Sox. Now it’s 1 and 8. Will they make the playoffs? I don’t know that, but there sure was a lot of whining going on for having the teams worst month and NOT losing any ground.

  51. m August 31st, 2010 at 10:51 pm

    I didn’t watch the game, but it sounds like people are painting a horrific outing. So he went 5 instead of 6? They’re not going to let him go deeper than that anyway. He gave up 4 hits. I prefer that to some kind of model of efficiency.

    As for the run support? He hasn’t needed every single run of that support. People (writers) need to stop harping on it so much.

  52. trisha - true pinstriped blue August 31st, 2010 at 10:51 pm

    “Is it too early to Stick a Fork into the suxs because I am ready to call it!”

    I called it months ago. I would hope you’d be ready to do it now.

    I’m so happy for the Orioles. They are playing much better baseball under Buck. They have some really good players there.

    I knew they’d steal this one from the Suxers. I’m looking for a sweep.

    Is anyone in their right mind still thinking the Sux have a chance? At this point I think I will turn that into a statement. If anyone here thinks the Sux still have a chance, they’re out of their minds (with fright and fear). That’s the Suxian version of Aura and Mystique.

    And yeah, feel free to quote me at the end of the season too. I stand by my prediction.

  53. Betsy August 31st, 2010 at 10:51 pm

    I don’t think pundits (not sure I would either) count players having bad years as adversity. I tend to think of adversity more along the lines of injuries; bad years are self-inflicted in a way

  56. Rob B August 31st, 2010 at 10:51 pm

    One place the S*x have really been hurt this season is in the loss of Ellsbury. I don’t think he’s as great of a player as the Bean-towners make him out to be, but they do miss his speed on the base paths. They are second to last in the majors in SBs this season. That has certainly taken away a few runs and perhaps a handful of wins.

  57. Doreen August 31st, 2010 at 10:51 pm

    G. Love -

    And not only all of that, but they mostly covered their losses with players from their own system without spending a whole lot of extra money. But that will be ignored, as well.

  58. trisha - true pinstriped blue August 31st, 2010 at 10:52 pm

  62. CB August 31st, 2010 at 10:53 pm

    “Epic poems will be written about the 2010 Red Sox and their Sisyphusian feats.”

    Most of their injuries were to their offense. Despite that they’ve been amongst the league leaders in runs scored.

    What specifically killed off their chances this year was the enormous under performance of a pitching staff that was supposed to have 5 aces and a bull pen which was poorly constructed and not improved after the problem became apparent because no trades were made and there wasn’t much down on the farm.

    It was their pitching more than anything else that is the reason why they won’t make the playoffs. And the only major injury they had to the staff was beckett and that’s just a run o the mill kind of injury all staffs will face, no worse really than Andy’s injury.

  63. MTU August 31st, 2010 at 10:53 pm

    M, I’ve just decided that I’m not going to read any articles anymore; I’d be more inclined to read blog posts. I’m disappointed that Phil’s command has left him for the time being, but I thought Rubin and Shpiegel were WAY too harsh. First of all, the idea is to prevent runs from scoring – and Phil only gave up 2, even though he looked ugly in doing it. Second, the idea that the Yankees are disappointed in him because he’s not providing length? That’s speculation – maybe Joe is, but I doubt Cash is. It’s not Phil’s fault that the rest of the rotation aside from CC is weak.

    Be prepared for the legendary write ups of Daniel Nava, Darnell McDonald, Ryan Kalish, Felix Doubront, the immortal Bowden, etc.

    After a year in the AL East Lackey will be sure to be ready for the pressure cooker next year and will return to ace status.

    Beckett just needs to clear his head in Texas for the off season and when Farrell goes to visit him in December, he’ll say “we were just underhand soft tossing and I’ve never seen a fastball move like that in my life”.

    Pedroia will have grown a completely new foot.

    Daniel Bard will have thrown a fastball faster than the speed of light and will be working with NASA.

    Adrian Gonzales will be forcing his way in a trade to Boston much to SD’s surprise.

    Cliff Lee, Carl Crawford and Jason Werth will all be buying into Theo’s plan and will take less to play in Fenway…..

    David Ortiz, if he demands his option be picked up, will be renounced by Boston and called selfish and egocentric. We’ll hear how the real Papi behind the scenes never really matched up with the media creation.

    It will be a fun off season.

    “By the way: in case anybody missed it Baltimore is the first and only team (so far) to be completely eliminated from post season play”

    Poor O’s. I can’t wait until the same thing happens to the Sux. It will be payback for their broadcasters saying they were on their way to play “the terrible Orioles.” If memory serves me the terrible Orioles swept the Sux earlier this season and it looks like the terrible Orioles beat them again tonight. Speaking of terrible, how many games are the Sux out in the loss column now? 8?

    It wasn’t his best, a little tedious, but not horrific, in my opinion.

    “You think that means no Kearns?”

    Kearns will be on the roster. They should probably drop a pitcher for the extra position player.

  74. Mr. Sandman42 August 31st, 2010 at 10:57 pm

    Assuming they don’t blow this lead, I think you have to take Kearns over Golson for the postseason. They tried this speed thing last year with that guy (Guzman?) and they never used him. Kearns can actually hit and play defense, so you may need him to pinch hit and play actual games.

    My roster would be (assuming 11 pitchers and all 14 healthy)

    Sado, Cervilli, Tex, Cano, Jeter, Arod, Gardner, Granderson, Swish, Berkman, Thames, Kearns, Pena and probably Nunez.

    I guess you can take Golson over Nunez if he shows he’s better. You have to take 11 pitchers right? 12 seems too many.

    Definitely agree about Ellsbury. I said at the beginning of the season that their biggest loss was that of Ellsbury. I absolutely believe that. In fact I think it may have been Ellsbury who stole home against Andy and roundly embarrassed the Yankees in so doing!

    :)

  77. GreenBeret7 August 31st, 2010 at 10:59 pm

    First round, I might go with 10 pitchers and the extra offense/defense. 11 in the second round and 12 in the WS.

    Merely reminding you of your responsibilites. :)

  80. stuckey99 August 31st, 2010 at 11:02 pm

    I think I’ve figured it out.

    Some of you guys used to date the Red Sox, didn’t you?

    It’s the only thing that makes sense. You claim you hate them, but you sit in your car on the curb all night waiting to see then they come home at night and who with.

    It’s amazing how much attention the 3rd place team in the division has gotten this season.

    They’ve been out of it for some time now. For whatever reason, people chose to be scared of them.

    Never made an ounce of sense.

    joeman,

    I too would have rather beaten them without the injuries. It just gives Boston fans something to cry about and blame for the season.

    Losing Ellsbury, Pedroia, Youkilis and Cameron is rough, but the Yankees have had key players hit the DL, had players play well below expectations and had bullpen problems very early on and were still able to win.

    That’s baseball. No one was weeping for the Yankees last year when Arod started the year off on the DL from potentially career threatening hip surgery.

  92. Yogi Mantle August 31st, 2010 at 11:10 pm

    I was somewhat impressed by Hughes outing tonight. When a pitcher just doesn’t seem to have it working on a night and yet they are able to get out of trouble and give 5 innings of just 2 runs, you know he worked for every out.

    It isn’t pretty, but I think that shows quite a bit about the type of player you have. Seeing a player when they are successful is nice, but seeing them keep it together when they are struggling tells you more about what kind of player you have.

    Think about Hughes tonight and compare it to AJ. Which would you rather have on the mound? While AJ could get his act together, I think, even with struggles, Hughes would be the safer choice.

  93. LGY August 31st, 2010 at 11:11 pm

    CB,

    I said something similar about the Red Sox the other day in regards to improvements they can make to their team in offseason.

    They have money coming off the books and can certainly improve the names on the roster card in their lineup. But, whoever they bring in will likely bring about the same results. 2nd in the league in runs scored.

    There is nothing they can do with their starting pitching, since they are completely locked up.

    Whatever success they have in 2011 is going to be very dependent on Beckett and Lackey bouncing back.

  94. Dylan August 31st, 2010 at 11:12 pm

    I like these moves, though I probably would have brought Curtis up instead of Golson. Golson can pinch run though which helps. I like having a 3rd catcher also, for a couple reason. A) It allows them to give Posada more days off. B) It allows them to pinch run for Posada, while not using their last catcher. C) It allows the them to pinch hit for Cervelli, when Posada is DHing. Having another arm in the pen is always a good thing as well. I think all of these moves make sense. I know a lot of people wanted to see Montero, but bringing him up wouldn’t have made much sense. The Yankees don’t need another bat right now. Thames is crushing everything in sight, Berkman comes back tomorrow, and A-Rod comes back soon enough. Montero is still very young. It makes more sense to let him continue to develop as a catcher in AAA. There is no need to rush him.

    Here’s the thing. Boston is good. And will always be good as long as they play in that sardine can.

    But, it’s irritating for both fans and the media to not give credit to another team that’s pretty good, too. The New York Yankees.

    And I don’t want to hear about our inconsistent offense. Players and offenses by nature are inconsistent on a game to game basis.

    Phil won’t get into the 7th inning all to often, Don’t know what it is but in his last 11 starts he’s average 5.2 innings pitched…..the 97 pitch count in 5 innings tonight was a struggle and for him to only give up two runs, made the pitch when he needed it

  103. I Like Inge August 31st, 2010 at 11:19 pm

    Yankees should have called up Kenny Powers.

  104. Betsy August 31st, 2010 at 11:20 pm

    Nah, Lee is just in a slump…

  105. Betsy August 31st, 2010 at 11:21 pm

    5.2 isn’t awful……………it’s being brought down by his last start; he’s really struggled with pitch count and command. Joe has said that the Yanks wouldn’t yank Phil from a game where he’s doing well, so if he is pitching well and it’s not a blowout, they would let him go 6 or 7. If he’s going to start in the playoffs, he’ll need to rebuild that stamina.

  106. CB August 31st, 2010 at 11:23 pm

    “The way Cliff Lee has been pitching lately has to worry the Yanks a little bit right?”

    I don’t think so. He was on such a huge run that it was likely going to end. He didn’t have one rough patch this whole season and even great pitchers have trouble.

    This will likely put him out of Cy Young contention however and that will make him easier to sign.

    It also might make the rangers rethink how much they are willing to invest in him if they have any concerns about him in that odd ball park.

  107. joeman August 31st, 2010 at 11:23 pm

    5.2 innings will get him a W

  108. Betsy August 31st, 2010 at 11:24 pm

    Pfft. People getting too worked up over Phil. Cliff Lee would swap tonight’s pitching line in a second.

    All that matters is that we win. We did. Yes, he got a ton of run support, but in reality he only needed 3 runs for a win.

  111. joeman August 31st, 2010 at 11:27 pm

    Phil 7 innings 8 times this year..the catch 5 of those times were in April & May..just saying

  112. Betsy August 31st, 2010 at 11:27 pm

    Joe, it’s one thing for fans (me) to have outsized expectations, but the media — shouldn’t they know better? Shpiegel believing that runs allowed is less important than style of pitching? Rubin stating that the Yankees need and expect a lot more from him? Cash has already said that they are not going to go over his limits just so the Yankees can win the division/make the playoffs…..because it means the rest of the team would have failed to do their job. That does not sound like a man who expects Phil to shoulder the burden (or share it with CC) at 24 years of age.

  113. Tabbert August 31st, 2010 at 11:28 pm

    Well he’s struggled for the last few months, but that’s not unusual……….I imagine it’s unusual for young pitchers to go deep in games.

    The problem is that Phil was so hyped that now if he doesn’t do

  116. CB August 31st, 2010 at 11:28 pm

    “Here’s the thing. Boston is good. And will always be good as long as they play in that sardine can. ”

    They’ll be good as long as they can continue to squeeze disproportionate revenues out of their fanbase and can produce talent internally.

    The collapse of their secondary ticket market, decreased radio ratings and most of all fall in TV ratings are all very concerning signs for them given their business model.

    Since Theo took over the Sox have not produced even one legitimate power hitter. The Sox got a ton of compensation picks from free agents that Duquette signed and that was critical for them to get talent. On top of that it was the Duquette regime that actually acquired and developed many of the players who are key pieces of the team now.

    Theo is in for a very different set of challenges now both on the talent development and business sides.

    Tex has been good the last 2 days. I have a crazy idea for next April, instead of telling him the calender says May, they should bruise his thumb. So by the third or fourth game he can come and hit a full season without the slump.

  118. Betsy August 31st, 2010 at 11:29 pm

    I dont’ get that. They need to write stories and the are generally going to write stories that tend to interest people.

    So if the fanbase has outsized expectations that’s the direction the stories will go in also.

    It’s the fanbase that consumes what the media is generating and the interest in what’s written. Don’t see how it’s always the media’s fault.

    For all the talk of Phil winning because of run support, I thought that was the idea. Your team scores more runs to win than the other team. And your pitcher to hold the other team to less runs, which he’s done in all of his wins.

    ______________

    I think there is something else going on with Lee. Injured but not enough to be out of the games, or the defense, or just the mental aspect of being in Texas (the place where he has historically played poorly). There was also talk of Lee being disappointed by not going to the Yankees, and while I don’t think he would mail it in, it could have caused some shakeup of his focus.

    Lincecum is another matter. His mechanics are complex, and if they are off its difficult to get him right again. His body type isn’t typical of a pitcher either.

    Pitchers are always a risk to some extent. I’d still rather take a chance on a Lee type of pitcher than a Lincecum type.

    “did you read the quotes I posted? Those were pretty stupid comments.”

    Maybe so but I still don’t get the idea that you can separate the fanbase’s outsized expectations from how the team is covered.

    Its the demand that’s driving the product.

    No one wants to write about a first place club as a whole because it draws less interest than intensely focusing on problems and amplifying them.

    Yankee fans aren’t patient and have the needs to have close to 0% uncertainty as to whether or not the team will win the series. That’s why stories and coverage drive in those directions.

    Just read the comments in the game thread about Hughes’ performance. People in the media are going to share many of those same sets of expectations because that’s the level of patience NY fans have.

  134. GreenBeret7 August 31st, 2010 at 11:41 pm

  136. Betsy August 31st, 2010 at 11:42 pm

    KPB, he does get a ridiculous amt of run support, but that’s what most teams hope for when they have a young kid as the #5 – they hope he gets support so that he doesn’t have to feel the pressure to win those close games. Earlier in the season, Phil did a lot of the heavy lifting while games were close – then the team scored late. That hasn’t been the case lately, admittedly. People see his 16 wins and chalk that up to run support given his relatively high ERA

  137. SAS August 31st, 2010 at 11:43 pm

    Betsy,

    I thought it had some thing to do with Hughes winning games, and that he was doing it for you…lol. He said he was going out for one now which what made me think of it. This go round in AZ I am going to try one of those things.

    Betsy-

    No one is going to write about a first place team with the best record in baseball and just say it’s the best team in baseball. There’s not much to “say” from that point of view.

    So coverage of the yankees is always going to micro-analyze problems.

    And yes, that’s because the fanbase has impossible expectations and is unhappy because they want near 100% certainty as to the outcome of the season.

    The Yankees have a 50-50 chance of winning the division at this point in time. That’s where things stand.

    But that doesn’t make an interesting story and more importantly that’s not what yankee fans want to hear. They want to hear about the problems so that’s what’s written about.

    No one is micro-analyzing Trevor Cahill’s awful start yesterday evening.

    But that’s the impossibility of satisfying Yankee fans, particularly when you’re young and learning because on the one hand they demand that you throw more off speed stuff but then are incensed that when you do what they demanded your command declines and you don’t provide enough innings, etc. But then if you try to pound the zone with your fastball to provide length yankee fans will be unhappy because you aren’t using 4 pitches and aren’t “developing” into an “ace” and around it goes.

    It’s a self-fulfilling circle between the media and the fanbase but it’s the fanbases’s lack of patience and impossible expectations that drives that dynamic.

    As I said the yanks have basically a 50% chance to win the division. For many yankee fans that’s unacceptably low come september 1. They want a 95%+ or even 99% certainty of winning the division – let alone the series.

    And due to those expectations there is an inordinate amount of attention focused on “problems” that amplifies them completely out of perspective.

    But it’s the fanbase that drives the dynamic.

    Betsy,

    We are in NY until the 24th.

    Only had ‘em steamed- N’Orleans style.

    Are they better smoked ?

    I always had trouble with their claws tearing the Zig Zags.

    MTU, everything is better when you smoke ‘em. and, unlike other bad things, they’re legal.

  154. Betsy September 1st, 2010 at 12:03 am

    CB, well that makes a lot of sense. I suppose I’m one of those who, at least subconciously, wants more certainty than sports can provide.

    No one here is micro-analyzing Cahill’s start, but are they doing that in Oakland? Maybe not..

    I’ve wanted Phil to use more of his pitches, so I did not have a problem with that at all tonight. I’m not sure that his command issues necessarily corresponded with his using those pitches because he had command problems last start. I can’t speak for other fans, but I suspect many of them are concerned not so much with Phil’s performance this year and what it means for the Yankees, but what it means for his future and how good he’d be. So, if people criticize him for not having sufficiently good breaking pitches, it’s not so much that he’s struggling now, but because it would limit his ceiling. Many fans jumped off Phil’s bandwagon and onto Joba’s, so I believe there is limited tolerance for his foibles.

    They have no such problems in Jamaica. Plenty of room Mon.

    Have a good night. :)

  156. Betsy September 1st, 2010 at 12:04 am

    SAS, oh I didn’t know that – oops!

  157. Betsy September 1st, 2010 at 12:05 am

    I’ve been to New Orleans once and loved it; I won’t try crawfish, though, because the idea of pinching those guys to get at the meat sort of makes my stomach crawl

  158. KPB September 1st, 2010 at 12:07 am

    Betsy

    I understand what you’re saying. But, on the lighter side of things, since I’ve been coming here I have been a little annoyed about his wins. Because I don’t have an In & out anywhere near me and I want to try one really bad. :smile:

  159. MTU September 1st, 2010 at 12:08 am

    Betsy-

    Next time you’re in N’Orleans try Deanie’s. Absolutely awesome food.

    You’ll think you died and went to heaven.

    Have a good night.

  160. KPB September 1st, 2010 at 12:09 am

    Think of them as little lobsters.

  161. CB September 1st, 2010 at 12:11 am

    “No one here is micro-analyzing Cahill’s start, but are they doing that in Oakland? Maybe not.. ”

    No there would be no reason for them to do it here.

    The point I was making is that they aren’t doing it in Oakland. It’s just a game, part of the process and so it goes.

    Yankee fans cannot be made happy. So you might as well do what they want.

    Micro-analyze problems and uncertainty.

  162. GreenBeret7 September 1st, 2010 at 12:15 am

    I see that Boston has released Jeremy Hermida, but, Edes couldn’t let a chance to throw a dig at Ellsbury, with “Hermida was able to recover from 5 fractured ribs in 5 weeks.” Yeah, you idiots. Let FAs know what they’ll be in for when the Sox attempt to sign ‘em.

  163. Betsy September 1st, 2010 at 12:15 am

    KPB try a 5 Brothers instead, lol……………….they really are very good and their fries are to die for.
    As to the crawfish, but they are kind of cute lil lobsters, but I don’t want to be that hands on with my food!

    MTU, I’ll keep that in mind!

  164. Betsy September 1st, 2010 at 12:16 am

    CB, well that’s why I’m going to try and avoid the media; they just feed into my tendency to worry

  165. stuckey99 September 1st, 2010 at 12:19 am

    Not for nothing, but the entire premise of competitive sports is uncertainty.

    That’s kind of the whole point – success where there is the prospect of failure.

    There is something lost when a Yankee win provides just a temporary measure of relief, rather than true satisfaction.

    And this is what being a Yankee fan has turned into for some – being really, really nervous the Yankees will fail and having to read about it on the internet.

  166. SAS September 1st, 2010 at 12:20 am

    My Mom used to get crawfish soup from New Orleans. Even back in the old days it was expensive, but it was divine. Too spicy for me now, but great back then.

  167. SAS September 1st, 2010 at 12:22 am

    :arrow: Where you want to be on September 1

  168. GreenBeret7 September 1st, 2010 at 12:29 am

    My mistake. It wasn’t Edes that made that remark….it was the other idiot, Cafardo.

  169. ron September 1st, 2010 at 12:58 am

    The rs made a huge set of mistakes in signing becket,lackey long term.

    If they did not sign them they have a great 1-2 punch in lester & buchholz.
    If they could sign a lee type pitcher in addition they have a nice foundation with a ton of money too spend.

    We can complain about burnett but becket,lackey & dice are ugly contracts & 2 of them are just starting their contract terms.
