Week 2 begins at Steinbrenner Field

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

First on the field this morning is Dellin Betances, who is going through early morning stretch and getting ready to throw. Looks like he’ll be one of the eight guys facing live hitters this morning. And it looks like Greg Golson will be one of the guys he’s facing (Golson is swinging a weighted bat outside of the cage).

Today is the second full-squad workout. More players will gradually filter onto the field in the next few minutes, then everyone will go through drills in a few hours.

Alex Rodriguez is scheduled to address the media this afternoon. That’s our main event for the day, otherwise it looks like business as usual around her.

    Trading for Liriano should be a fireable offense and/or an indication that the owners are idiots. I trust they won’t even think about it at this point.

    I was just looking at the last post-that Robbie is something else. :)

    And I found my new desktop background. Love that picture!!!

    Very good way to start a Monday. And those of you that have today off-I hate you all.

    Rich,

    Why so anti-liriano? Is it the cost in prospects or injury concerns?

    He was a heck of a pitcher last year.

    With regard to Chad’s comment in the previous post:

    “Derek Jeter remains the iconic player in the Yankees clubhouse. He’s the Captain, the team’s leader off the field and arguably the most interesting player on the field all-time status and career-low numbers. Jeter is the Yankees icon, but the team’s MVP might be the guy six lockers away.”

    I think A-Rod’s tenure with the Yankees has been for more interesting.

    austinmac

    Yup, he’s an injury-in-waiting, which would make him a very bad risk.

  6. pat February 21st, 2011 at 8:47 am

    ?……. He’s the Captain, the team’s leader off the field and arguably the most interesting player on the field all-time status and career-low numbers……..?

    That sentence confused me last night and reading it again this morning, I’m still not sure what it means.

  7. blake February 21st, 2011 at 8:47 am

    I would still trade for Liriano…..just probably for a lot less than the Twins would ask. I wouldn’t give any of the top guys for him.

  8. Rich in NJ February 21st, 2011 at 8:50 am

    blake.

    Sure, if they can steal him, but that’s highly unlikely, imo.

    Millwood turns down a Yankee contract, lets see what this gets & where this he ends up…

  10. blake February 21st, 2011 at 9:02 am

    Rich,

    Yea right now Im sure it is……

  11. blake February 21st, 2011 at 9:05 am

    Millwood is working out at the Boras complex and waiting for a team to have an injuy to a starter.

    ” Derek Jeter remains the iconic player in the Yankees clubhouse. He’s the Captain, the team’s leader off the field and arguably the most interesting player on the field all-time status and career-low numbers. ”

    I said this last night .

    This sentence makes no sense .

    Peter Abraham never wrote gibberish like this .

  13. Rich in NJ February 21st, 2011 at 9:15 am

    If I had kids, next Halloween, I would suggest that they go trick-or-treating in internet troll costumes.

  14. Chad Jennings February 21st, 2011 at 9:19 am

    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.”

    I just think Jeter is the most interesting position player this spring. He’s been an icon for more than a decade, but this is the first time he’s coming to camp after a bad season. There’s no new intrigue around Rodriguez, we all know how good Cano is and Posada’s role this season is pretty well defined. Jeter is the one guy who could drastically go one way or the other, and there’s really no way of knowing which way that will be.

    I just heard on Mike and Mike that Rafeal Furcal is the health care plan for his home town …..anyone who needs hospitalization in the town, he picks up the tab. He also had a fire truck for the town negotiated into his contract with the Dodgers. That’s just really cool stuff.

  16. blake February 21st, 2011 at 9:23 am

    Chad,

    Yea I agree…..he along with Montero. I think most are really anxious to see him in some live action.

  17. austinmac February 21st, 2011 at 9:24 am

    Millwood may end up waiting with Washburn and Dye. They can discuss why no one appreciates their value.

  18. Fran the original February 21st, 2011 at 9:30 am

    Does anyone know who this player is -

    A Yankees OF in the 1980′s who couldn’t handle being booed in NY so he would come up with back problems before home games and rarely played at home. Only played on the road.

    Cashman was on Mike’d Up last night and was talking about players that couldn’t handle the pressure of NY. He brought up this OF. I don’t know who it is.

  19. Erin February 21st, 2011 at 9:37 am

    Ledger_Yankees Yankees have eight guys throwing live BP today. Sisco, Brackman, Garrison, Turpen, Phelps, Warren, Mitchell and Wordkemper.

    blake-I saw that this morning too. Very cool :)

  21. GreenBeret7 February 21st, 2011 at 9:38 am

    Not sure if this was posted oh here, but a good article from Ben Shpigel of the Times.

  22. GreenBeret7 February 21st, 2011 at 9:41 am

    Fran, not sure but that may have been Steve Kemp.

  23. BIG AL February 21st, 2011 at 9:41 am

    Good morning folks.

    Is MTU back from his long weekend hike?

  24. JCPD February 21st, 2011 at 9:51 am

    AL, shhhhh, the mornings have been nice and peaceful without him. ;-)

  25. Fran the original February 21st, 2011 at 9:53 am

    GB,

    Thanks. I know Kemp didn’t do well in NY.

  26. SJ44 February 21st, 2011 at 9:53 am

    It was Kemp.

    He was inflicted with what Graig Nettles called, “Soderholm Disease”, named after former Yankee Eric Soderholm.

    He once had an awful game at the stadium. George came into the locker room after the game and berated him so badly in front of the team, he was never the same player again.

    He literally freaked out everytime he played another game for the Yankees and they eventually parted ways with him.

  27. BIG AL February 21st, 2011 at 9:55 am

    JCPD -

    Good morning Jim. Are you saying Mike is loud? How did Dakota react when she first saw you after that long separation?

  28. GreenBeret7 February 21st, 2011 at 9:55 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.

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

    :arrow:

  30. Fran the original February 21st, 2011 at 9:57 am

    SJ,

    Thanks. Didn’t know about “Soderholm Disease”. Fortunately it doesn’t affect too many Yankees :)

  31. JCPD February 21st, 2011 at 9:59 am

    Al, she was excited and then the normal 24 hours of ignoring me until she’s hungry and then remembers who feeds her. She goes everywhere with me, so we’re back to normal. She went along for the ride to Cooperstown last week. Today it will be off to Watkins Glen to do some snowshoeing with a fresh 8 inches this morning.

    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!

  33. GreenBeret7 February 21st, 2011 at 10:05 am

    It’s too bad that the Yanks couldn’t have signed Chet Lemon instead of Kemp. Kemp was one of the first real FA busts for NYYs. Can’t blame Don Gullett for the injuries, When he was healthy, he was as good as there was. Just a risk that didn’t pay off in the long run.

  34. BIG AL February 21st, 2011 at 10:28 am

    JCPD -

    Have a good trip, and enjoy the snow while it lasts. Here it’s been in the upper 60′s to low 70′s, and last Thursday it hit 80, so we don’t know about that cold white stuff.
