Early Monday notes: Big guy on the mound and new guy in camp

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Notes on Feb 21, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Exactly one week after the first official workout for pitchers and catchers, Yankees camp opened this morning with Dellin Betances taking the mound on the main field here at Steinbrenner Field. Two hitters, Austin Krum and Greg Golson, took turns against him.

I asked Golson how Betances looked, and Golson gave a classic hitter’s response: He said he refuses to say any pitcher’s stuff was good, even if it’s during a batting practice session in front of no one but a few coaches. If Golson gets out, it’s his own fault. I thought it was pretty funny, but I don’t think Golson meant it as a joke.

Apparently Betances is the only pitcher who faced hitters this morning. There should be more later in the day.

• Infielder Addison Maruszak has been added to big league camp, but he’s here as a catcher. Primarily a shortstop, he was the Yankees 17th-round pick in 2008, and he’s played all over the infield. This fall Maruszak started getting some time at catcher during instructs. The Yankees have always like Maruszak’s arm, and he said they’re grooming as a kind of eight-position utility man. He’s never played the outfield as a pro, but he’s certain he could handle it. Maruszak said he’s already pretty comfortable behind the plate, though he’s still honing his instincts back there.

• Maruszak said he’s not sure how long he’ll be in big league camp. He doesn’t know whether this will be an occasional thing, a one-or-two day stint, or if he’s here until being reassigned just like everyone else. As far as I know he hasn’t been officially added to the spring roster.

• Hector Noesi said this morning that he was throwing bullpens back home, so he’s not really behind the other pitchers in camp. He was never concerned that he wouldn’t be able to get here.

• Random observation: Francisco Cervelli spent the winter working out with Robinson Cano, but it’s funny how much he still follows and constantly talks to Jorge Posada. Once a mentor, always a mentor, I guess.

• On the sheet of paper that lists the hitting and defensive assignments for the day, every player name is typed in black ink with two exceptions: Brandon Laird and Kevin Russo are written in red. I assume that’s because they’re the guys who will shuttle between infield and outfield drills.

• Bullpen assignments:

Andy Sisco (to Francisco Cervelli)
Andrew Brackman (to Kyle Higashioka)
Steve Garrison (to Kyle Higashioka)
Daniel Turpen (to Jesus Montero)
David Phelps (to Austin Romine)
Adam Warren (to Jose Gil)
D.J. Mitchell (to Jose Gil)
Eric Wordekemper (to Addison Maruszak)

• Hitting groups: Most are the same as yesterday, with catchers moving around

Infield Group 1: Robinson Cano, Derek Jeter, Eduardo Nunez, Jorge Posada
Infield Group 2: Ronnie Belliard, Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira, Austin Romine
Infield Group 3: Eric Chavez, Ramiro Pena, Kevin Russo, Jose Gil
Infield Group 4: Doug Bernier, Brad Suttle, Jorge Vazquez, Addison Maruszak

Outfield Group 1: Greg Golson, Andruw Jones, Nick Swisher, Russell Martin
Outfield Group 2: Brett Gardner, Curtis Granderson, Justin Maxwell, Francisco Cervelli
Outfield Group 3: Colin Curtis, Jordan Parraz, Melky Mesa, Kyle Higashioka
Outfield Group 4: Daniel Brewer, Austin Krum, Brandon Laird, Gustavo Molina, Jesus Montero

• Fielding groups: The exact same as yesterday’s groups, Maruszak wasn’t listed with a defensive group

Catcher Group 1: Jose Gil, Russell Martin, Gustavo Molina, Russell Martin
Catcher Group 2: Francisco Cervelli, Kyle Higashioka, Jorge Posada, Austin Romine

Infield Group 1: Doug Bernier, Robinson Cano, Eric Chavez, Derek Jeter, Eduardo Nunez, Brad Suttle, Jorge Vazquez
Infield Group 2: Ronnie Belliard, Brandon Laird, Ramiro Pena, Alex Rodriguez, Kevin Russo, Mark Teixeira

Outfield Group 1: Daniel Brewer, Curtis Granderson, Andruw Jones, Austin Krum, Jordan Parraz
Outfield Group 2: Colin Curtis, Brett Gardner, Greg Golson, Justin Maxwell, Melky Mesa, Nick Swisher

    GB,

    Thanks for linking the article in the prev thread……they had Banuelos listed as 195 lbs now….he’s clearly filled out. He’s now mature physically and already knows how to pitch…..he just needs the innings and he’s ready to go.

  2. BIG AL February 21st, 2011 at 10:00 am

    Back later.

    That sentence is what happens when you self edit after a long day and forget to put back some key words.

    “… the team’s leader off the field, and arguably the most interesting player on the field because of his all-time status and career-low numbers.”

    —————

    Chad, I am not given to using superlatives, which are often too easily thrown around. But your coverage of ST for us here has been top-notch. I mean that!

    You have been bringing genuine images and facts of substance to us, so much so that I for one feel that I’m there. I’m sure that others here feel the same way.

    And we all speak Typo, especially me and GB7, so don’t sweat it.

    So … thanks! Great job!

  5. GreenBeret7 February 21st, 2011 at 10:11 am

    No real surprises, but, this is Donny Collins’ projected Scranton roster for the start of the 2011 season. Don’t be shocked if Brackman isn’t added, though.

    You mean you think Brackman is in AA?

    From Mark Carig

    http://www.nj.com/yankees/inde.....ek_je.html

    “Random observations. Brackman, the tallest player in camp at 6-foot-10, has to duck so he doesn’t bang the top of his head on the double-doors leading into the clubhouse. Meanwhile, one year hasn’t changed this fact: no law-abiding bartender would ever think serve utility man Ramiro Pena without seeing proper identification.”

  8. GreenBeret7 February 21st, 2011 at 10:22 am

    Doreen, I think Brackman opens in Scranton. Just a guess on my part, though.

    GB, nice article on Sanchez. How does he compare size-wise? He might still be growing.

  14. GreenBeret7 February 21st, 2011 at 10:45 am

    Sanchezs about 6 feet and 190-195 from what little I saw of him in the GCL. What a pretty swing. Athletic and as strong as a bull. Very much a Rodriguez type power hitter it seems. high flies to all parts of the park that just seem to keep carrying.

    I have to criticize the writer for being very lazy. He could have or should have described the implications of the medical problem, or how the procedure was done…he could have talked more about the plans for him…THis was as insightful as just copying and releasing a press release (which is probably what he did).

  16. trisha - true pinstriped blue February 21st, 2011 at 10:49 am

    Sorry but any Yankee fan who criticizes Chad really needs a circular trip in the wah-wah wambulance. Here’s a guy who never stops providing us with really top-notch coverage, has not once trashed or humiliated a poster who might disagree with his views, trashed a Yankee player that he just doesn’t like, or imposed his views on us in any way, shape or form. He’s a total gentleman and a great provider for us.

    Just sayin’.

    Thanks Chad. You do a tremendous job.

    (By the way, I know it was Ruby who most recently threw out that silly shot. But there have been some really juvenile criticisms in the past, though thankfully they have been few and far between.)

    “I have to criticize the writer for being very lazy. He could have or should have described the implications of the medical problem, or how the procedure was done”

    Couldn’t agree more.

  19. GreenBeret7 February 21st, 2011 at 10:52 am

    Since Nalbone is a writer in a minor league town, was he expected to be traveling to Florida? He said in the short piece where most of the information came from.

    I find your post to be very lazy and poorly thought out.

    Okay, anyone want to play a fun little game that could last a long time? (I have a lot of Yankee Stadium baseball cards.)

    I will ask you questions from the back of the card. (I will ask two questions a day, one at 10 in the morning and one at 6 at night.) I will give you all the relevant information. Some are going to be ridiculously easy, others not so much. I am doing today’s as soon as I put one together, only because it is snowing and we are not walking today. I usually am not here at this time of day.

    First correct answer wins.

    I will keep score and the person who has the most wins when I run out of cards – or when people get tired of playing – will win a very nice gift. It probably will have something to do with the Ritter company, but you will win in multiples.

    :D

    Okay, to quote Ben Bailey – you in?

    I’ll be back with the first question. As soon as I get a correct answer I will tell you and then it’s over ’til the next time.

    Don’t agree with Collins’ listing of Montero as the C to open the season at Scranton. What more does this kid have to prove? I am praying that Cervelli is the one that is kept at Scranton to open the season, would much rather see Montero go north with the big club.

    comet -

    Tiguan update:

    I was originally told the car would be delivered in 2 to 3 weeks. Because the weather was so brutal here, I built in an extra week or two (plus I was in no hurry to drive a new car in the mess!). At the 5 and a half week mark, I sent a friendly e-mail to my salesman. No response. Two days later, another e-mail, no response. Two days later, I called him and left a voice message. No response.

    On Friday, I called the dealership and was told that my salesman had been promoted and is “up the street.” They then connected me with another salesperson, who connected me to another person. This other person said they’d get right on it, but it was a busy weekend for them. I told them I didn’t care how busy it was, I’d been waiting since January. He said he’d make it high priority.

    On Friday afternoon, I got a call from the dealership manager, who apologized that I slipped through the cracks. He told me they found a car for me, but it’s in Maryland and it would take a couple (2-3) days to get it up here. So, now I wait a couple more days. If I don’t hear anything by Wednesday morning, I will call Wednesday pm for an update. But I fully expect to have the car by end of next week.

    I partly blame myself for building into the wait time. BUT there is no excuse for allowing a customer to “slip through the cracks” of a personnel change. I mean, shouldn’t there be a logical protocol that is followed? I’m sure he’s not the first salesperson to leave for one reason or another.

    All were apologetic and polite in dealing with me, so there’s that, at least.

    “Trisha, Did I win already?”

    :lol:

    Erin – how sad is this? Tales from a chocoholic. Friday night I went to a fundraiser and all I could think about was a Sports Bar. My favorite is the milk chocolate with hazelnut. (I am NOT a dark chocolate eater.) Well once I left there I flew to CVS just as it was closing and grabbed a hazelbut bar and flew home with it. I put it on the counter and got myself all set up for the rest of the night and then ceremoniously went and got the bar. When I went to open it, it was the dark chocolate. I grabbed the wrong one. :( :( :( I ate it anyway but so did not enjoy it.

    I made up for it on Saturday, when I bought two!

If you notice your post went up just before mine so I was still writing mine when yours posted! Of course I knew you weren’t criticizing Chad. That’s not your style anyway.

    I am fully aware of HIPPA, but I am not suggesting he call Sanchez’s doctor for patient info. A local doctor to discuss the type of condition would have been very helpful and informative. Writers check with experts for input when the writers are good.

  49. Fran the original February 21st, 2011 at 11:17 am

    What doctor in his right mind is going to comment on another doctor’s case without know nothing but the sketchiest of details and not being asked for his opinion? Joe In LI won’t do it. He may give an opinion on an injury if he’s versed in it, but, certainly nothing like this. Cashman gave the details of the procedure and Nalbone provided the link. That’s not enough for you? Name other writers major/minor that provided more.

    QOTD

    This player was known for being aggressive on the field and strong-minded in the dugout. His top power season came in the early ’50s, when he clubbed 15 homers and drove in 75 runs. The year he was named to the MLB All-Star Game, he scored 76 runs.

    Who is this player?

  53. Fran the original February 21st, 2011 at 11:21 am

    Trisha and Erin,

    I have never seen or tried on of those bars, but with all of this talk about it, I have to look for one next time I go to Target.

  54. Dionysius Thelxinoe February 21st, 2011 at 11:22 am

    This thread is turning into a Chadapoolza (see “Old School” with Vince Vaughn).

    BoJo, an “expert” would only be able to speak in terms of useless generalities. So what would be the point?

    I really hope so. Its not that I was nervous, but I wanted to make sure I covered all the information in a timely manner and covered the content effectively. My lesson was supposed to be 30 minutes and that worked out though I ran through the story really fast. I mumble too so I’m sure she will point that out. I think she will email her comments to me tonight. I’m eager to find out how she thinks I did.

  57. BoJo February 21st, 2011 at 11:22 am

    GB7–

    Let’s ask Joe when he gets here .

    The question would be:
    “I’m ___________ with the __________ newspaper, and I am doing some background for a story on a player who recently had a procedure done to catherize an extra artery in his heart. Without talking about a particular patient, I wonder if I could ask a few questions about that type of condition and the procedure. Specifically, how frequently does an extra artery in the heart appear? What is the danger of that condition? How would athletic activites impact it? How is the correcting procedure done?”

    Simple as that…would have been good info for the story.

    Doreen

    My professor is probably 6 foot if not taller but she has a sweet look about her, I think she will provide me with great feedback. One thing we were told to do was record ourselves doing a lesson so we can go back over it and evaluate ourselves. I might do that in a few weeks. Or next week, I think it would be quite helpful to see how I look in the front of the class and how fast I am speaking.

    Bojo, but here’s the point. I would not have automatically known that answer. So there will be days that some of us will be learning something that others knew with their eyes shut. I promise I will try to find at least one toughie per day.

    A tried for civil discussion yesterday at the pool with a Soc fan, that ended with me being told that the Yanks were the 3rd best team in the East and that my knowledge of baseball was inferior to his. On that comment I said well that ends this and any future disucussion with your superior intelect on baseball. :-(

    tyanks,

    The feedback is good. When I taught, they didn’t do videos but they do them now in NY as part of the certification process.

    My first day teaching, a student had an epileptic seizure in the back of the room and collapsed. I thought he was dead and that I had killed a student on my 1st day. Fortunately he was fine and I survived too :)

    OK GB, who is Andy Carey?

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

    Carey was supposed to be the next big thing at 3rd base for the Yankees in the ’50s. Not always a favorite of Stengel’s.

    Stengel said “I got a guy what knocks in 2 runs with his bat and lets in 3 runs with his glove. Right away, I’m in the hole.”

    Then, late in a game down the stretch, when Stengel would usually pinch hit for Carey, Stengel let Carey bat, with a little advice. “Go up there and knock the ball into the right field seats.” Carey was right handed and not a power hitter. Carey hit the first pitch into the lower stands in right. Asked about what advice Stengel gave him, Carey told the reporters what was said. He added, “When the Old Man tells us to do something, we do it.”

  86. Fran the original February 21st, 2011 at 11:51 am

    GB,

    Great story about Carey. Really about Casey Stengel I guess.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  94. check these guys out August 9th, 2014 at 10:02 pm

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  105. check content August 10th, 2014 at 8:45 pm

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

I know there are lots of more fun occasions in the future for people who see your blog.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
