    What time is the game? Mlbnetwork says its covering it at 8…..maybe that’s a replay?

  3. Ys Guy February 27th, 2011 at 8:54 am

    girardi wins again! 2-0 already!

  4. yankeefeminista February 27th, 2011 at 8:54 am

    Probably. It is a 1:05 on YES.

    “The Jesus” batting 6th!!!

  5. Fran the original February 27th, 2011 at 8:57 am

    Good morning.

    Ys guy,
    I never would have had today’s line-up correct. Guess a lot of the regulars get to skip the road trip.

  6. GreenBeret7 February 27th, 2011 at 8:57 am

    I would have liked seeing Mesa getting an outfield start today. Chavez will be an interesting watch. His rogress may affect Laird’s spot on the roster. Can’t see Belliard leaving Florida as a Yankee.

    Chavez at the corners ? Didn’t know he could play 1st.

    I agree. Bellyard is a gonner.

    :)

  8. blake February 27th, 2011 at 9:02 am

    I think if Chavez is healthy he makes the team with Laird playing every day at SWB…..that gives the Yanks an experienced backup with LH power and allows Laird more development time and a chance to increase his value….

  9. blake February 27th, 2011 at 9:03 am

    Yea chavez can play first….he’s just not as experienced there as a 3rd.

  10. MTU February 27th, 2011 at 9:03 am

    Blake-

    The Yankees seem to have a lot of place-holders this year.

    You’re right. That buys time for the youngsters. There’s no rush.

    Chavez kind of said he can’t; he is concerned about and needs to work on first base foot work. I think he has barely played 1B.

  12. MTU February 27th, 2011 at 9:05 am

    I like the way the Yankjees are building a team that has players who are versatile.

    That should serve them well when the injury bug bites (which it always does).

    Gb,
    Thanks so they are just playing it at 8 on TV.

  15. yankeefeminista February 27th, 2011 at 9:07 am

    Actually Chavez has had only 2AB (2 G) as a 1B according to Baseball-Reference.

    Since it’s on at 8 there’s no need for you to reschedule your appointment with the President this afternoon.

    Yeah, I’m sure Mesa gets in today. A marvelous outfielder with a great arm. His swing has holes, but, great power and outstanding speed.

  27. Ys Guy February 27th, 2011 at 9:13 am

    so i was driving yesterday afternoon and had the game on for a few minutes and heard when tex popped out his second time up, making him 0-1 at that point and i thought to myself, ‘ someone on the lohud is calling tex a failure and calling for pujols right now!’

    i didnt go back and check , but im confident it happened

    QFT, but seeing Betances and Montero today is a coup in itself. Although at least I have seen them multiple times live, but never Mesa. Still pretty happy about it though, except need to search for some Sunday morning muffins before first pitch to make my day complete.

    Ys Guy,

    Or at least calling for Girardi to drop him in the line-up.

    YES is also re-airing the game tomorrow at 9 AM in case you can’t see it tonight or you’d rather watch the Academy Awards :)

  30. MTU February 27th, 2011 at 9:16 am

    If it is too sleazy for Killer you might ask, “How did I get in ?”.

    Answer: I was “Grandfathered” in during the Dinosaur Age.

    Yes, very excited to see him (and at Trenton.) Also love that he has improved his ability to hit breaking pitches. I hope he thrives this year.

    that is good….I had some really important info to share with him ;)

    Betances to Montero.

    Makes ordinary people feel small. Like Lilliputians.

    :)

  34. yankeefeminista February 27th, 2011 at 9:18 am

    I hope that Tex intentionally hitting earlier in the off-season does indeed mean that he hits in April/May. (fingers crossed)

    GreenBeret7 February 27th, 2011 at 8:40 am
    Not sure why we ever decided to pile on Randy, other than he’s easy pickin’s, but, we should ease off on him.

    NAH!!!!!

    I know, GB. We should really cool it. At his age it’s especially easy to get confused. For example, I think when lauding the Twins pitching development, he makes the mistake of confusing the Minnesoata Twins with the old Minneapolis Millers from the late 1800s. Now according to the histories that I’ve read, THAT team knew how to develope pitchers! Unfortunately, after baseball banned the spitball, their success rate went down. That’s when they knew that their pitching development philosophy was licked.

    Randi continues to get all this stuff mixed up. I’ve noticed a number of times where he slips up and will say things like so and so will be pitching today for the Highlanders. I believe he once said that his favorite player was Jack Chesbro and wondered when Chesbro was going to have his next start. I think he still faults Cashman for having forced Giradi to use Jack in the last and deciding game of the 1904 pennant race.

  39. blake February 27th, 2011 at 9:24 am

    Tex had a really nice swing in his 3rd AB….it was rich handed though. If the plan is to simply play him more this spring in hopes that he’ll get off to a better start then that seems very logical…..hopefully it works out.

  40. MTU February 27th, 2011 at 9:25 am

    GB-

    You have to admit that, though Killer has a soft spot for children, his “morals” are bit, shall we say, on the “loose” side.

    I think that is a fair characterization.

    He would do well as a potential Polygamy dog though.

    :)

  41. GreenBeret7 February 27th, 2011 at 9:26 am

    “rich handed”? Are you trying to out-MTU MTU?

  42. GreenBeret7 February 27th, 2011 at 9:31 am

    “Killer’s” thoughts on life is that it’s more blessed to give than receive. However, if you can do both he’s a double winner. He’s the Brigham Young of dogs.

  43. MTU February 27th, 2011 at 9:31 am

    GB-

    Perhaps Killer would be willing to do a “cameo” appearance on the cable TV show “Big Love” ?

    He should contact his agent immediately.

    Maybe. But he sure ain’t no Angel. “Moroni” or otherwise.

    Provided Eric Chavez is healthy, the only player that can squeeze him out is Brandon Laird.
    Chavez knows he won’t be any everyday player any longer with Teixeira and Alex as fixtures but a combination of his LH bat and the RH bat of Nunez should cover the infield. If he hits, Ramiro Pena is a switch hitter playing as many positions as Nunez.
    The Yankees don’t lack in depth for the infield or outfield.

  59. Tom in N.J. February 27th, 2011 at 10:07 am

    I just got a puppy. It’s a Scottish Terrier. I let my 3 year old niece name him.

  68. upstate kate February 27th, 2011 at 10:25 am

    congrats Tom :)
    An important rule in name choice is to remember you are going to have to call the dog…”come Mr Cuddles”…”heel Mr Cuddles”
    We got both our cairns as adults, so they were pre-named.

  69. tyanksfan36 February 27th, 2011 at 10:40 am

    My dog came prenamed too. Bimmer. Everyone pronounces it wrong cause its pronounced like beamer. My friend who I got him from wanted to be accurate when spelling his name. The bmw car is spelled Bimmer, the motorcycle is spelled Beamer. Who would have known that?

  70. Tom in N.J. February 27th, 2011 at 10:42 am

    It’s tradition in my family that the youngest member gets to name the pet.

    Many, many years ago I named a cat ‘Space Orbit Cheese’, so Mr. Cuddles is rather tame.

    I think the ‘Mr.’ in his name gives him a little gravitas

    MTU -

    Be careful, too much exposure on LoHud can lead to Nick in SF calling it the “MTU thread”.

    Good morning all. Baseball again today, life is good.

  72. BIG AL February 27th, 2011 at 10:47 am

    tyanksfan36 -

    FYI:

    So just why is a BMW car called a ‘bimmer’ not a ‘beemer’ or ‘beamer’?

    The answer in part lies in knowing some BMW history and what came first.

    All real BMW enthusiasts know that BMW got a big start on two wheels, what many call the real BMWs.

    In those days, BMW motorcycles were quite active in racing, and one of their competitors at the track was often the BSA bikes.

    Well as things would have it, a track slang developed, and the BMWs were usually referred to as ‘beemers’ and the BSAs were referred to as ‘beesers’.

    So, of course for any true enthusiast, there is no way that a BMW car could be called a ‘beemer’, so they were called ‘bimmers’.

  73. Rich in NJ February 27th, 2011 at 10:52 am

  76. upstate kate February 27th, 2011 at 10:58 am

    Tom
    When my son was little, we got a cat, which he named Peanut Butter Taffy (he was white w/ a little orange). It didn’t really matter as we just called him Kitty.

    So nice to see some baseball, especailly since it has snowed off and on the last 3 days.

  77. tyanksfan36 February 27th, 2011 at 10:59 am

    Big Al

    That’s exactly what my friend said. His boyfriend at the time who got the dog wanted to name him beamer with that spelling, my friend who is a huge car enthusiast would not let him spell it that way because he didn’t want to name him after the motorcycle therefore he would be named Bimmer. Its kind of inconvenient for the first time we take him to the vet or wherever we have to write his name and they say his name like its spelled which just sounds ridiculous.

  78. BIG AL February 27th, 2011 at 11:00 am

  79. BIG AL February 27th, 2011 at 11:03 am

    tyanksfan36 -

    Go to a vet that’s more successful, they might own a “Bimmer” and appreciate the name, and know how to say it.

  80. tyanksfan36 February 27th, 2011 at 11:06 am

    Big Al

    Haha, our vet is pretty successful if expensive means success, she is probably the most expensive vet in the area but she is super nice and a great vet. Her vet techs just don’t know the difference.

  81. BIG AL February 27th, 2011 at 11:09 am

    tyanksfan36 -

    Copy the post I put up with the explanation, and use it as a handout. Think of it as educating the masses.

  82. tyanksfan36 February 27th, 2011 at 11:16 am

    Big Al

    It would definitely save me time in trying to explain it to everyone who questions it and says his name wrong. It would probably be easier to spell it like beamer but I feel everyone should be educated.
