No show Mo, and a few other quick notes

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Feb 15, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Mariano Rivera was not in camp today. His kids have been sick, and Rivera asked to stay home until everything clears up. He was planning to get into Tampa at some point today.

“Even when he’s here he’s got a different program, and it’s obviously one that works,” Brian Cashman said.

The illness isn’t especially bad — “flu stuff” is the way Cashman described it — but Rivera wanted to stay home with the kids, and the Yankees had no problem with it.

What is there to say? It’s Mo.

• Hector Noesi is also not in camp. He had some visa issues and hasn’t been able to report. No word on when he’s supposed to get here.

• Brian Schlitter has been claimed off waivers by the Phillies. He reported to Yankees camp yesterday morning, was designated for assignment yesterday afternoon, threw a bullpen for the Yankees this morning, and was packing his bags this afternoon.

• Brett Gardner has been hitting and throwing with no pain or discomfort. Apparently because he’s a rehab guy, he’s allowed to be in camp before the other position players.

• Despite Jorge Posada’s comment this morning that he wouldn’t be surprised to see Andy Pettitte come out of retirement before the end of the season, Joe Girardi said he’s not counting on such a return. “Andy has always been pretty true to what he says,” Girardi said.

• One day down with no major injuries to report. Girardi said nothing unexpected popped up today.

    Is it me or does Joba look oddly like Don Mattingly in that pic?

    Joba doesn’t look in shape. Looks flabby around his elbow area.

    Cliff Lee just wasn’t enough for the Phillies. They had to take Schlitter away from us too. This is ridiculous.

    No need to hold that number for Schlitter.

    And SJ, you’re obviously wrong again. He’s flabby around the ear lobes.

  10. Erin February 15th, 2011 at 3:30 pm

    Joba needs a haircut. ;)

  11. GreenBeret7 February 15th, 2011 at 3:30 pm

    Maybe somebody should cross pollinate oats with apples or maple trees and save time shopping for yummy flavored oatmeal.

    I should get a job thinking up these brilliant ideas to save money and time.

    I did not say anything directed at you about any microwave. Pretty funny though that you can’t come up with your own comeback and have to repeat mine.

    I know it is tough on you being alone and relying on a sports blog for your social interactions so I will overlook your childish comments and chock them up to your need for attention anyway you can get it.

  17. ac1 February 15th, 2011 at 3:39 pm

    When did all of this discussion on tv and online come up about Pujols/Tex.

    I like Tex, but if there is ANY way to make that work with Tex going to STL (which he will never agree to), and Yankees giving Pujols that deal he wants, they would be all over that.

    Tuna salad? Just feed the fish mayonnaise.

    Seriously I used to cook the steel-cut oatmeal. Takes like 40 minutes.

    And no I don’t want a medal for admitting that. :wink:

    Joba hair definitely gained some mass.

    “so I will overlook your childish comments”

    What is wrong with this picture? Not of course that I’m calling you a ridiculous hypocrite for saying that I’m alone and rely on a sports blog for my social interactions, and then making reference to “childish comments.”

    Okay I am calling you a ridiculous hypocrite.

    And only West Coast would be so pedantic as to not pick up the goof in using his own comments back on him.

    Okay, multiples, I will now give you the respect that your mentality is due:

  29. Shame Spencer February 15th, 2011 at 3:46 pm

    My personal trick with oatmeal was to heat the milk separately in the microwave. No stopping and starting that way. Just warm it up in a mug and pour in your oats. Stir until fully mixed.

  30. blake February 15th, 2011 at 3:46 pm

    Repost:

    Let’s say Pujols and Teixera would both wave their no trade and a straight up swap of the two players could happen. After this season Teixera will have 5/115 left on his deal…..If Pujols were traded to the Yanks I’m guessing it would take 10/275-300 to extend him as he would want to beat Alex’s deal and would know the Yankees can afford it. Albert is clearly the better player but when you compare 5/115 to 10/300 is he that much better? I say no.

    I didn’t know that exploding oatmeal was so universal! I thought it was just me. I just reheated my oatmeal with a little milk and added sliced strawberries and some blueberries. Yum! Breakfast! I find something about oatmeal so comforting.

    Yes in theory. But…. Assuming Tex hits .270 and Pujols hits .320. There is a huge difference. It’s just a thought that seems to be making the rounds.

    Shame’s was one of the most popular answers. Warm your water/milk separately, and then stir it into the oatmeal.

    Runners up:

    Use a very large bowl and then oatmeal can’t explode and make a mess. (I don’t trust this one.)

    Use less power and cook longer.

    Cook, stop and stir. Cook, stop, and stir. (Erica’s suggestion)

    From my vantage point above the bullpen areas, the group that was scheduled to throw today looked good. Especially good to see Mark Prior throw free and easy.
    The buzz was the weight loss of C.C. and the sameness of Chamberlain who will throw tomorrow.
    When the catchers took BP, Russell Martin swung the bat well and Kevin Long spent considerable time with Cervelli. He has him keeping his hands back further and was getting more power with his swings. Montero was Montero. Jorge was Jorge.
    Larry Rothschild communicating well with all pitchers.
    Freddy Garcia has the look about him like somebody that wants to make this pitching staff.

    Mariano has been on his own schedule for the last 4-5 years. He wouldn’t be throwing a bullpen session until next week anyway.
    He only needs to make 10 one-inning appearances during the exhibition games to be ready for the season. Never makes road trips during March and stays back at GMS Field to get his work in. He’ll show up in Tampa tomorrow looking like he did for the last game of 2010.

    While I would have preferred to see Joba show up looking like the Terminator, I really don’t give a damn how he looks at the end of the day. He is a relief pitcher. He’s a big guy. Can her perform up to his ability on a consistent basis-that is the question. If he can, I don’t care if he looks like Goose Gossage.

    If though you can only find whole ones, a trick is to fill up a big bowl of water and open them up under water – the pith will float to the surface and the erols will sink to the bottom (plus no squirting)

    The smoothie consists of a banana, yogurt, whey protein, skim milk, flax seed, and frozen fruit (strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries).

    Lots of vitamins, protein, and fiber. Almost no fat.

    I have more energy now than I’ve had in the last 10 years.

    I just saw where Joba was listed at 230lbs.

    Someone should tell him he needs to put both feet on the scale.

    Chip, I guess I can try Whole Foods. They seem like the kind of store that would sell it that way. I know I’ve only seen whole ones at the super markets.

    I’ll definitely try the bowl of water trick. I’m sure I’ll pay less that way.

    Pomegranites were my favorite thing for the longest while. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas when my mother would fill up the fruit bowl, she’d always add a few pomegranites for me. Nobody else ate them. I remember sitting in the parlor with a big dish towel on my lap, gingerly trying to part the pomegranite and watching the seeds fly all over the place. By the time I was done, my hands would be red-stained and all sticky. After a while it just got to feel like too much work!

    Speaking of chicken-

    My client just got a tray of chicken (and sides!!!) delivered for a meeting tonight and its sitting in a room across the hall from me.

    The last time they did this to me I thought about eating chicken for two weeks.

    Do you think anyone would notice if i took the tray of chicken and ran??????

    My ‘Touche’ ( def: an expression used for acknowledging a telling remark ) was in reference to this part of bruceb’s post

    ‘As the song goes, “You Say It Best When You Say Nothing At All.” I know the truth hurts, sorry about that.

    Instead of posting GTLU I think I will keep track of how many relevant baseball posts you make ( no not including cheerleading or recipe posts ) that would increase the number to fast.
    ++++++++++++++++++
    Can we keep track of your as well, and perhaps place bets? Every time I see one of your comments, it tends to be of the trolling variety or just plain stupid.

    That’s why it is so easy to ignore what you say. Everyone here knows you’re an idiot and your comments carry no weight. At least in your other personna, people care enough to ridicule you. Same as on the Daily News blog…Redfish is the idiot, and BobbyCA is the attack dog.

    Different blog–same game.

    No need to respond…I won’t be engaging further.

    Mlbtr reporting that red sox are likely to trade robert coello. Gammons is working on a piece as we speak in which he explores why coello for john johnson or coello for felix hernandez makes sense for all involved parties.

    “My ‘Touche’ ( def: an expression used for acknowledging a telling remark ) was in reference to this part of bruceb’s pos”

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

    First of all, you and bruceb are one and the same. That’s why you threw in your touch. Because you were responding to your own post. Good job of exposing yourself there multiple.

    Touche is always used in response to another’s response to you. So you did it perfectly. You responded to yourself.

    By the way, since I didn’t feel like playing Carnac today and trying to figure out your posts to yourself isn’t really that exciting to me, there is no way I could know what part of your post to yourself, bruceb, was the part that you were high fiving.

    Now go soak your head. Your malcontent crybaby posts don’t interest me.

    The only time I will refer to anything you scratch here is if I am implicated in any way.

    If you had any backbone you would have just said what you wanted to say rather than set up another personality to act as your shill. See ya now malcontent.

    And most importantly, take your own advice, child. Scroll on by if you don’t like what I post.

    TOUCHE And to the rest of your drivel – pas de touche!

    For those of you who play GTLU, I’ve added the eight (8) dates of the spring training games that I will host GTLU to the website. 4 day games, 4 night games. All except the first one are weekday games, all are televised.

    I’m working out the schedule for the regular season. It may be a reduced number of games from last season, maybe not. ;)

    Oh! I finally get what you have been alluding to!

    You think I’m Bradcompany or Brads77–the guy who was the main person who ran you off the Daily News board, is that it? Is this based on the same research that had you posting the name and address and phone number of someone entirely different than him on the Daily News for the last year (until you finally found him on a social networking site)?

    Is that why you also pose as me on the Daily News and post under my name?

    Your are such an obsessive little troll. Fine…Keep it up. I’ll know to laugh from here on outwhile you make a fool of yourself.
