Cecil vs. Yankees

TIME/TV: 1:05 p.m., YES Network

WEATHER: Another beautiful day, almost no wind. We’ve been lucky this spring with pretty consistent weather.

UMPIRES: HP Mark Wegner, 1B Eric Cooper, 2B Marty Foster, 3B Dan Iassogna

ON THE LINE: Freddy Garcia was knocked around in his previous start. This is his chance to bounce back and make his case that he should still be a favorite for the Yankees rotation. Also, Eduardo Nunez and Ramiro Pena are getting time in left field, and Austin Romine is getting a start in his first day back in camp.

OUT OF THE BULLPEN FOR THE YANKEES: RHP Mariano Rivera, LHP Manny Banuelos, RHP Mark Prior and RHP Luis Ayala. By the way, not suggesting he’ll break camp with the big league club, but Ayala seems to have made a good impression. Could get a mid-season look if a spot opens.

OUT OF THE BULLPEN FOR THE BLUE JAYS: RHP Carlos Villanueva and RHP Casey Janssen

KEVIN LAWN AWARD: INF Eduardo Nunez and RHP David Phelps will receive their Kevin Lawn awards today. The award goes to the Yankees minor league Player and Pitcher of the Year. Nunez hit .289 with 25 doubles and 23 stolen bases last season in Triple-A, Phelps had a 2.50 ERA with 141 strikeouts between Double-A and Triple-A.

MAKE IT FOUR IN A ROW: Alex Rodriguez has homered in his past three games.

UPDATE, 1:12 p.m.: There’s a 1-2-3 first inning for Garcia.

UPDATE, 1:18 p.m.: Alex Rodriguez’s two-out RBI single has given the Yankees a 1-0 lead, and extended Rodriguez’s hitting streak to 12 games. He has a hit in every game this spring.

UPDATE, 1:22 p.m.: Robinson Cano follows with his first spring home run, and it’s now 3-0 Yankees.

UPDATE, 2:10 p.m.: The fourth inning fell apart a little bit for Garcia. He’d faced the minimum with only one ball hit in the air, but he started the fourth with four straight batters reaching base, including a leadoff double. The Blue Jays scored three runs to tie the game at 3 heading into the bottom of the fourth.

By the way, Melky Mesa can cover some ground in center. Just made a nice running catch on a sac fly to the left-center gap.

UPDATE, 2:24 p.m.: Guess Nunez is pretty comfortable in left. He just made a nice running catch at the warning track for the last out of the fifth inning. Waiting with a high five as soon as he jogged off the field was Derek Jeter.

UPDATE, 2:42 p.m.: An RBI single by Posada has the Yankees in the lead 4-3, but the inning ended with Andruw Jones grounding into a double play with the bases loaded. Jones has been pretty bad this spring, though I’m not sure it matters.

UPDATE, 2:45 p.m.: Nunez didn’t look so good on that one. A leadoff double got over his head in the sixth.

UPDATE, 2:51 p.m.: Had Nunez caught that first fly ball, Garcia would have gotten through a 1-2-3 sixth inning, retiring the first nine batters and the last nine batters he faced this afternoon. Instead, the Nunez ball dropped for a double and Garcia allowed a massive two-out, two-run home run by David Cooper. He positively crushed it to right field and tis’ 5-4 Blue Jays.

  4. West Coast Yankee Fan March 19th, 2011 at 1:06 pm

    It’s late in spring training and there is a legitimate competition for the fifth spot between Garcia and Colon. I think Colon might have a small edge right now – big game for Garcia.

  5. BoJo March 19th, 2011 at 1:06 pm

    How DOES he manage to place first post the majority of the time? Can he really spend all that time lurking and NOT have ANY life what-so-ever?

    Uh, I guess so.

    Losers spend a lot of time trying to win stupid stuff.

  8. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    Rich, forgive E. Ruby California. With all the crap happening to his Sux, his anxiety is definitely showing. Gonzalez getting errors left and right and batting 222, CRAWFORD BATTING 206, Bucholz losing yesterday’s game, “Wakes” giving up 6 runs in the 2nd game, the Sux losing the second game, Okajima giving up homers, and Beckett pushed down to the 4th spot, what do you expect him to say?

    His bunched panties are definitely showing!

  9. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 1:09 pm

    Lackey better than AJ?????

    :lol:

  10. West Coast Yankee Fan March 19th, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    Nice start by Garcia.

  11. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    Garcia, pitching Top of the 1st inning

    Davis ground out to shortstop

    Escobar strikeout

    I think the RS are merely a symptom of something much larger.

  13. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    Yesterday’s Sux losses.

    8-3 Detroit; losing pitcher Seed of Chucky Bucholz (this photo is from yesterday’s game, after he lost http://www.halloweenasylum.com.....-32080.jpg )

    Game highlights – errors by Gonzalez (2) and Pukeylisp

    7-3 Rays; losing pitcher Wakefield

    Nice 1-2-3 inning from Garcia.

    Best inning ever.

  15. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    Rich, I think you’re right.

    Well onto something important – the game!

    :)

  16. stuckey99 March 19th, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    Have the NY Yankees, spring training or otherwise, EVER played a game that wasn’t “big” for someone or for some reason?

  17. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 1:16 pm

    Bottom of the 1st inning, Brett Cecil pitching, no score

    Jeter infield single on hot shot to third

    stolen base

  18. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 1:16 pm

    Nunez ground out to shortstop (barely)

    Rodriguez double down left field line, run scores

  21. West Coast Yankee Fan March 19th, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    Who is that number 13 guy he’s having a decent spring.

  22. West Coast Yankee Fan March 19th, 2011 at 1:20 pm

    A-Rod > entire Sux infield combined.

  23. Benny Blanco March 19th, 2011 at 1:20 pm

    GB,

    Thanks for the answer regarding the catching drill…

    There goes that guy #13 with the double..

  24. DocTodd March 19th, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    Wakefield needs to face facts,just retire and join a local softball beer league..

  25. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    Cano 2 run homer

  26. DocTodd March 19th, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    Whatta ya know! Robbie Cano!

  27. West Coast Yankee Fan March 19th, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    We might score 1,000 runs this year.

  28. Benny Blanco March 19th, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    Cano is a beast. this lineup is scary…Whats also scary is that robbie is starting to heat up..

  29. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    Any time Benny. My pleasure

  30. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    “A-Rod > entire Sux infield combined”

    I’ll say!

    Arod + Robby > the entire Sux team!

    Bret Cecil not having his best outing.

  31. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    Posada HBP (hit his shirt)

  32. West Coast Yankee Fan March 19th, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    How about the spring that Tex is having!

    Cecil got jobbed on that pitch.

    Just sayin’

    How to be a troll in one easy lesson:

    West Coast Yankee Fan March 9th, 2011 at 10:04 pm
    I agree with what Marchand wrote. Colon was always a long-shot IMO and has fallen behind Garcia in the bid for the five spot.

    West Coast Yankee Fan March 9th, 2011 at 10:13 pm
    Your word pig slop. Not as good an option as Garcia is my opinion. Marchand’s points are one’s I agree with:

    1. Colon has now given up three runs in nine innings (3.00 ERA), while Garcia has thrown five shutout innings.

    2. Garcia has the edge because of his success last year (12 wins), while Colon didn’t pitch.

    3. Colon is out of shape.

    Spring Training Report on YES after game, features on Jones and Montero

  37. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    Romine ground out to 3rd

  38. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    This may have already been reported but sad that Luis Salazar lost his left eye.

    Scary the things that can happen.

    :(

  39. stuckey99 March 19th, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    I wish nothing but the best to and for Tim Wakefield.

    Strikes me as a credit to the game.

    How to be a troll and disrupt a blog in one easy lesson.

    Follow someone from another blog with the sole intent and purpose of exercising his pathological obsession and stalking.

    Notice the interruption of a game and baseball talk with said obsession with little to no regard for the other bloggers. The very definition of a troll.

    On the merits – Garcia came into camp as the favorite – his last outing which was poor in combination with Colon’s good performances has now, today, IMO given Colon a slight edge.

    Go away troll.

  41. Fran the original March 19th, 2011 at 1:31 pm

    The game is also on WCBS 880 with Susan and John. I am out and listening on the radio.

  42. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    I was excited when the Yanks picked up Garcia. I will continue to say that the Yankees have a lot of options with their pitching.

    Good for us!

    :)

  43. tomingeorgia March 19th, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    I’m watching on the internet, so there’s a delay, but did Cano put as good a charge into that homer as it looked?

  44. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    Top of the 2nd, 3-0 Yanks

    Lawrie ground out to shortstop

    Cooper ground out to 2nd base

    Arencibia strikeout

    curve in mid to high 70s, mid 80s fastball

  45. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    Freddy Garcia = Yankee secret weapon

    Rafael Soriano = Yankee secret weapon

  47. West Coast Yankee Fan March 19th, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    Garcia so far today is helping his cause.

  48. teddy9000 March 19th, 2011 at 1:35 pm

  49. West Coast Yankee Fan March 19th, 2011 at 1:35 pm

    RedSux = no secret weapons

  50. Benny Blanco March 19th, 2011 at 1:35 pm

    Garcia looks great!

  51. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 1:35 pm

    tom, Cano hit a blast to center-right center

  52. BoJo March 19th, 2011 at 1:36 pm

    If Arod is as healthy as he seems, and is poised to have a big year (as it seems), then I have to admit that Girardi is probably right batting Cano behind him to offer protection. The two should put up scary numbers this year.

  53. Benny Blanco March 19th, 2011 at 1:36 pm

    Manny Banuelos = Yankees secret weapon

  54. BoJo March 19th, 2011 at 1:36 pm

    The only suggestion I might have is trying Arod in 3rd, Cano as clean-up and Tex as 5th.

  55. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 1:37 pm

    Bottom of the 2nd inning, 3-0 yanks

    Mesa ground out to 3rd base

  56. Dionysius Thelxinoe March 19th, 2011 at 1:37 pm

    Sounds like it’s whichever way the wind is blowing.

    That’s not an opinion. It’s a bandwagon.

  57. West Coast Yankee Fan March 19th, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    I think it’s possible that Swisher, Tex, A-Rod, Cano could combine to hit 120 home runs.

  58. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    Jeter hard grounder up the middle for single

  59. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    Nunez fly out to just in front of track in left, Jeter moves to 2nd

  60. West Coast Yankee Fan March 19th, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    No Dionysius – that’s called knowledgeable baseball fans understanding that things change based on performance, especially when you are competing for a job.

  61. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    =====================
    I’ve been posting here under the same, single screen name for 2 years, jackass.

    You are the one who posts drivel on a daily basis with the sole intent of always being right. It’s easy when you change positions 180 degrees with the same frequency that Lindsey Lohan changes drug dealers.

  63. DocTodd March 19th, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    JEter is still hitting grounders,but he’s hitting them hard,so they are getting through for hits….

  64. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 1:41 pm

    Definitely an unCecil-like outing.

  65. West Coast Yankee Fan March 19th, 2011 at 1:42 pm

    Jeter seems to be getting more and more comfortable with his adjusted hitting regimen. He’s looking good, hitting balls hard. I think line drives are going to come and be more plentiful.

  66. tomingeorgia March 19th, 2011 at 1:43 pm

    Thanks, Trisha. slow internet, blotchy picture. I’m running a half inning behind.

  67. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 1:43 pm

    AJ!!!!!

    I am so psyched for him. Good for him. He definitely has worked his butt off.

  68. West Coast Yankee Fan March 19th, 2011 at 1:43 pm

    MG – disappear troll. No one is interested in your obsession.

  69. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 1:44 pm

    tom, someone said this game is on MLB TV, if you get that.

  70. Joe from Long Island March 19th, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    Garcia just pitched the best three innings ever……

  71. Bo knows March 19th, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    Long has gotten to Mesa. A lot less movement on his setup. It’s now under control. Damn that Long is impressive. The difference is slight but noticeable.

  72. SJ44 March 19th, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    Knowledgable baseball fans don’t put much stock into a bad ST pitching performance.

    In fact, “knowledgeable baseball fans” would know that Garcia had more quality starts than both Cliff Lee AND Josh Beckett last year.

    Meaning, one bad ST outing doesn’t put him behind a guy who didn’t even even pitch in the majors last year.

    Unless he gets hurt, Garcia is in the rotation.

  73. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    Top of the 3rd inning, 3-0 Yanks

    Loewen ground out to 1st base

    Gose fly out to right field

    McCoy ground out to 2nd base

    26 pitches total

  74. Fran the original March 19th, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    Nice job by Garcia.

  75. West Coast Yankee Fan March 19th, 2011 at 1:46 pm

    Jack Curry does such a good job, I wonder what the future holds for him. I’m sure much more than he’s doing now.

  76. Benny Blanco March 19th, 2011 at 1:46 pm

    Home runs this year: 2011

    Jeter = 13
    Swisher =29

    Posada= 18
    Cranderson = 29

    Jones= 17

    Thanks for your opinion SJ.

  78. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 1:47 pm

    “Unless he gets hurt, Garcia is in the rotation.”

    Looking that way.

    “Nice job by Garcia.”

    Fran, I know we were both really psyched about getting Garcia. Her definitely isn’t letting us down!

  82. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 1:50 pm

    Fran, I know my #1 fantasy pick but I’m not going to say it publicly. I will email it to you though.

    I’ll give you a hint – he’s definitely not rated in the top 10!

    ************

    For those of you who follow baseball (and not just the Yankees), who would be your number one draft pick if you played fantasy baseball? Obviously that takes in the entire league.

  83. BeholdArNo March 19th, 2011 at 1:50 pm

    Im excited by the addition of Garcia. I wanted him several years ago, but his Yankee time is now. He, like Chavez, is very cute and will show off those pinstripes proudly.

  84. SJ44 March 19th, 2011 at 1:51 pm

    No thanks necessary. When you attack a long poster like MG and act like a twerp, expect to get called on it.

    Now you can go back and tell us how Freddie Garcia is behind Colon based on a meaningless ST game.

  85. stuckey99 March 19th, 2011 at 1:51 pm

    So SJ, do you have Colon possibly taking Mitre’s spot (as I do) if he continues to throw well and Nova doesn’t implode?

  86. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 1:52 pm

    tom, DISH doesn’t have MLB TV? Wow. That stinks! Do you at least get ESPN for when they have the rights to the game?

    But cool that you’ll be able to watch NESN. Being in RI I’m stuck with NESN when they play the Yanks.

  91. SJ44 March 19th, 2011 at 1:55 pm

    Stuckey,

    Unless someone gets hurt, I think the only way Colon makes the team is in the long relief role.

    Don’t see him beating out Nova or Garcia.

    He’s not as good as either guy.

  92. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 1:55 pm

  93. West Coast Yankee Fan March 19th, 2011 at 1:55 pm

    You can say whatever you want SJ and I’ll slap you right back. It is clear from today’s thread that he is a troll who is obsessed and was disrupting a game blog.

    Knowledgeable baseball fans? So you say.

    As SJ alluded, knowledgable fans don’t base their latest opinion on the last 3-4 ip, but on the body of work and his viability for the immediate future.

    Otherwise, it’s just whichever way the wind is blowing. Or some reporter’s latest opinion.

  95. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    “typical spring training results for a proven starter, I’d put him in the Yankees rotation for the next 10 years tomorrow if they could figure out a way to get him.”

    Absolutely. He’s one of those diamonds that gets overshadowed by the big names.

    ***************

    MG is definitely not a troll.

  96. Bo knows March 19th, 2011 at 2:00 pm

    To keep it in perspective, Garcia is pitching to a mostly AAA lineup. Hold up on the Red Carpet.

  97. SJ44 March 19th, 2011 at 2:00 pm

    MG isn’t a troll. He just called you out on your nonsense.

    Do you really think a guy who had the year Garcia had last year is going to be “behind” a guy who hasn’t pitched well in the majors in years over a bad ST start?

    When you talk about being a “knowledgeable baseball fan”, one of those types know that isn’t on it works.

    108 – I’m sorry, I just couldn’t resist :)

    Besides, 9 up and 9 down is still perfect, no matter how you cut it. :)

    On another topic, I believe Cash has already said that he checked with Colon’s agent, and he was open to going to the bullpen. So, Mitre might be his real competition.

  99. MG March 19th, 2011 at 2:01 pm

    SJ, Trisha, thanks, I just get tired of reading the pollution posted by someone who has been kicked off every other baseball blog related to the Yankees was singlehandedly responsible for ruining the DN Yankees blog over the past year. I’ll just ignore him from now on, everyone here knows what he is.

    It almost makes you yearn to read 50 posts by Bret the Hitman about trades for David DeJesus and Soria lol

  105. MG March 19th, 2011 at 2:06 pm

    If Garcia is in the rotation (Nova seems like a lock at this point in time) the Yankees would have to release Mitre in order to keep Colon-isn’t Mitre’s contract at the major league level?

    I’m not sure they would do that, maybe Colon, with his excellent spring, will get a deal with another team where he can pitch regularly in the rotation, he’s earned it with the work he’s done and the way he’s thrown this spring. Personally, I’d keep Colon and release Mitre but it’s not my decision and Girardi seems to have a warm spot in his heart for Sergio.

  110. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    Hard decisions MG. I have a soft spot for Mitre also – but it’s based on my belief that he’s a quality pitcher. But I also agree that Colon has earned a spot someone in the majors. I’d like it to be with the Yanks too. But I also would like to see Nova in the rotation.

    That’s why I have said the Yankees are really loaded with options. Not a bad position in which to be.

  113. stuckey99 March 19th, 2011 at 2:10 pm

    So let’s see how this works…

    Roughly 20 minutes ago Garcia had regained his lead on Colon for the last starters spot, but in the last 10 minutes, he moved back behind, do I have that right?

    Anyone wanna take bets as to the standings 15 minutes from now?

    trisha – true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    I too am going to regret seeing any of hte pitchers go…Perhaps they can get something back in a trade for Mitre or Colon and package one or the other with Sanchez (the reliever). Tough decisions ahead.

  115. MG March 19th, 2011 at 2:12 pm

    trisha, hopefully those great options of March don’t turn into a waiver wire scouring in June after these options don’t perform.

    I actually think they’ll be fine, the Yankees will score a ton or runs and even a 4.5-5.0 ERA is really only 3 runs in 6 innings and lots of wins with the strength of the bullpen this year.

  116. West Coast Yankee Fan March 19th, 2011 at 2:12 pm

    In the event this is directed to me -

    I obviously DON’T think the competition is a sham. But it’s not a contest based on points for who gives up the fewest runs and hits, or else Mitre would have been in last year’s rotation, and not Hughes.

    I would think that would be obvious to everyone following this team, but I guess not.

  125. stuckey99 March 19th, 2011 at 2:16 pm

    MG, I was being sarcastic.

    I fully expect Nova and Garcia to be in the rotation, unless one of them implodes being time and we’re running outta time for that to happen.

    I somewhat expect Colon to beat out Mitre, to the point I’d say Colon if I had to make a guess right now.

  126. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 2:17 pm

    We just got the YES network in RI, and I’d say we certainly have a pretty good number of Ys fans here. But even though Verizon has YES, they never show games, only Yankeeographies and things like that. I’ve had DirecTV for long time now and ended up getting it when YES came into being. Before that I was able to get MSG as part of a sport pak add on and then CBS as part of network television.

    I wonder if Colon would agree to go to minors for a larger contract with guaranteed money? Mitre would have to go through waivers, but Colon already has minor league deal…just have to buy out his opt-out option.

  139. SJ44 March 19th, 2011 at 2:26 pm

    A competition is not based on ST stats.

    You look at the quality of a guy’s stuff, his upside, his poise, and then look to project that over a full season.

    When you look at Nova, Garcia and Colon, you have a young kid with considerable upside, another guy who pitched quite well, and held up physically, last year, and a complete unknown quantity at this stage of his career.

    Scouts will tell you to discard what you see in March and September.

    I can’t see Colon being given a rotation start based on a handful of March innings.

    It makes more sense, if he wants, to make him the long man since he’s a better pitcher than Mitre.

    He’s not as good, nor has the upside, of either Nova or Garcia.

  140. Nick in SF March 19th, 2011 at 2:26 pm

    What has been lost in this discussion of Garcia and Colon is how much Romine has regressed just in this game.

    0-2! Men left on base!

    Garcia’s struggles in the 4th inning are probably Romine’s fault too, and Garcia’s success in the other four innings came despite Romine’s bumbling.

    Romine has fallen very, very far behind Montero today.

  141. tomingeorgia March 19th, 2011 at 2:26 pm

    trisha, funny thing: I get MSG too, and sometimes SNY. I just think it’s the price to the service provider, which is why the Yankees are so rich. Most DISH subscribers are elsewhere than big metropolitan areas, and couldn’t care less about the Yankees. I mean, out here Comcast owns the cable rights, but they refuse to add high-speed internet because the customers they might get are too widely dispersed.

    As to baseball, there’s no point in responding to any of the ongoing sneers.

  142. Fran the original March 19th, 2011 at 2:27 pm

    Girardi was just on radio and said he still hasn’t decided on the 4 and 5 starters yet.

    Also said Banuelos will probably not pitch today because they want him to pitch multiple innings and Garcia went further than he figured.

    You’ve got to give Toronto credit. Although they’re not serious contenders yet, they’ve managed to dump an enormous amount of dead contract weight over the past couple of seasons and actually get some value in return (Amazing considering they didn’t even use Omar Minaya as their de facto sucker).

    This team should inspire some hope for the future if you’re a Blue Jays’ fan.

    I haven’t seen Colon or Garcia pitch, so I have no opinion either way.

    But from what I have read this spring it has been all about how good Colon has pitched, how much movement or life he has on his FB.

    From Garcia not so much. It’s been all about what he did last year. Kind of makes me leary in a Javier kind of way. And while I realize results don’t count, how one’s “stuff” looks, does.

    Again I have seen neither pitch.

  151. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 2:32 pm

    I give Toronto a ton of credit. A few of us have had serious questions about the way they’ve used their pitchers, maybe a problem with their pitching coach? because they seem to have set a record for having their young arms go on the DL. Had that not happened it is possible that the Jays would already be a contender since they had some really good offense in the past.

    I wish them well.

  152. Yogi Mantle March 19th, 2011 at 2:33 pm

    Tex has been doing well this spring. I hope this continues through the start of the season without his usual slow start.

    Glad to see Garcia get things back under control after his struggles. That seems to be an important characteristic that you would want with SP. Even when they have their problems, you need to see how well they can work themselves out of it.

    Garcia, Colon, Mitre, all bring something to the position, both positive and negative. It will be a tough decision come cutting time to see who goes.

  153. Ys Guy March 19th, 2011 at 2:34 pm

    c’mon you’re kidding that you thought colon, who hasnt pitched effectively in the majors for years, was ahead of garcia who won,what 12 american league games last season?

  154. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    So good to see you here.

    I am going to guess that Garcia is going to get a spot over Colon. It is purely a guess and I definitely don’t have any dogs in the hunt. I wish we had 7 spots so all of the contenders would get a spot.

    ************

    Can’t both Mitre and Colon go down to the minors? (Not that I want that, it’s something Bojo said about Mitre going through waivers.) Is he out of options?

  155. West Coast Yankee Fan March 19th, 2011 at 2:36 pm

  163. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 2:41 pm

    tom, I switched from Cox to Verizon totally based on the fact that Verizon finally got the YES network where Cox has never had it. I always had Cox AND DirecTV. I had Cox for my basic cable and DirecTV for Yankee games!

    Well Verizon said they had YES and that their Extra Innings package was the same as DirecTV’s. I would get the Yankee feed for every game except the Sux games (NESN b/c I’m in their market) and would have every team’s feed for the rest of the games, meaning I would be able to choose which team feed I wanted if I wanted to watch another major league game in which the Yanks was not playing! It’s really a sweet deal, and something that DirecTV started recently.

    So I dropped DirecTV on the spot since I no longer had need for their services and that very night that Verizon signed me up, I went to turn on Extra Innings and found that I had the KC feed for the Yankee game! Verizon definitely had their info wrong. So I immediately went into action and got DirecTV back. I was at least a little embarrassed to do it since I had dropped them like a hot potatoe earlier in the day.

    If it weren’t for the fact that Verizon FIOS is absolutely incredible, I would have dumped Verizon and gotten Cox back. But their television picture is magnificent. Meanwhile, Verizon has continued to remunerate me for their mistake. They pay for my DirecTV! :)

  167. West Coast Yankee Fan March 19th, 2011 at 2:42 pm

    I am very wary of basing too much on what someone did the preceding year. Javy Vazquez is a good example of that. I agree on paper Garcia looked to be the better choice and was mine coming in to spring training. I think if it is a legitimate competition it is close and I used the word “slight” advantage.

    Girardi also thinks Colon has done very well:

    “It’s probably going to come down to the last two weeks. They’re making my decision really difficult.”

    “He’s the Bartolo I remember, a guy who uses his fastball a lot, keeps the ball down and is able to hit his spots.”

    “I think it is possible that Toronto may have the best or 2nd best rotation in the division within 1-2 seasons (although outside of Toronto will be able to name them).”

    I definitely agree with you. Their kids can pitch. Another rotation to watch is Baltimore’s. They have had the pieces but for some reason Tremblay just wasn’t able to figure it out. Once Showalter came, their pitching was superb. In fact the Os had the best second-half record in the majors!

    Trisha,

    Of all the likely last-place teams in MLB, Baltimore will be one of the better ones.
    However, unlike Toronto, this Baltimore team signed a number of gray beards who won’t be around as some of their promising young players begin to put it together.

    I’d be a bit discouraged if I was an Oriole fan by that unless their plan is to flip some of these veterans to contenders come July for some mid-level prospects.

    Maybe Colon wouldn’t mind a couple of extra weeks throwing in the Yankee system. It gives him a little extra time to get in shape, and if the Yankees don’t want him he can take the next best deal.

    I’m chiming in for the first time this Spring. After reading the following, I felt I couldn’t resist drawing the comparison. Sorry if somebody has already said it.

    “Jones has been pretty bad this spring, though I’m not sure it matters.”

    It should matter. Remember last year? Randy Winn, anybody?

    Maybe there is something there that the coaches see that I don’t. Maybe he’s having good swings, but not getting results. Maybe he’s just a slow starter. But there’s not reason somebody should make the team just because he is a major league veteran. If he’s not playing well, get somebody else out there. Is his defense really still that good to excuse his poor bat? If not, replace him with somebody who’s a better defender, even if that is a young guy.

    Just my thoughts. I really don’t want to see a repeat of the Winn Experience.

    I said this last season and I say it even moreso this season. Anyone underestimating Toronto is making a mistake.

    MAPS – (Mets are Pond Scum) – I think Baltimore fans are positively jazzed and it’s likely due to what they saw happen once Buck took over. They were pretty formidable at times before Buck got there, and we know that offense was not their problem! If they could outlast you in a game, they could beat you with their offense.

    Now that it appears that Buck also turned their pitching around, I think they are going to make some noise.

    Put it this way. The fans have a lot more to look forward to than they have in the recent past!

    I agree that Baltimore will be much better in the short-term than they have been recently.

    I just can’t see Lee, Reynolds, Hardy, and Guerrero taking them past 85 wins (ceiling) and those guys will all be gone in 1-2 seasons.

    It may work out that they can flip a few of these guys for prospects if they perform well for a few months, but keeping them for the whole season seems to be an impediment to their internal player development.

    I never bothered to recognize it as I only chose this name in honor of the Cards-Mets rivalry of the ’80′s.

    Not at $23 million per year guaranteed for several more years with diminishing range in the OF.

    That money will allow them to retain several of these young starters if they continue to progress.

    You can always find offense on the corner OF spots for reasonable dollars.

  250. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 3:29 pm

  258. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 19th, 2011 at 3:35 pm

    MAPS – Vernon Wells isn’t just any outfielder. I’m not looking at the money, I’m looking at the player. I realize everyone thinks that the Angels overpayed for him. I think the Angels added one hell of a player to their roster. Two ways of looking at the same coin.

    I’d like Vernon Wells!

    What’s funny is that people in New England believe Theo was the “architect” behind the Red Sox in 2004. As if Duquette never existed.

    Then again they wouldn’t know much about anything when it comes to baseball, besides what ESPN shoves down their throat.

    Ledger_Yankees Freddy Garcia doesn’t think he’ll go to Triple-A but left open a long relief role if it comes to that. #nyy

    Doreen,

    You’re welcome :)

  277. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 3:46 pm

    Bottom of the 9th, 5-5 tie

    Chavez ringing line drive single to right field against left hander

  278. Rich in NJ March 19th, 2011 at 3:46 pm

    That question needs to be asked of Colon.

  279. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 3:47 pm

    Pena sac bunt, runner to 2nd base

  280. Yogi Mantle March 19th, 2011 at 3:48 pm

    Nice job of getting a hit there. Not wild about the location of the bunt, but it moves the runner over.

  281. Yogi Mantle March 19th, 2011 at 3:49 pm

    Drive in the run and you get ice cream! Or cream pie.

  282. MG March 19th, 2011 at 3:50 pm

    hopefully Mesa can’t be used as a designated pinch runner and get caught off 2nd again…

  283. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 3:51 pm

    Vazquez strikes out, Chavez moves to 3rd base on WP

    Vazquez is the size of The Incredible Bulk

  284. The Mets are Pond Scum March 19th, 2011 at 3:52 pm

    GB,

    Tony Mandarich?

  285. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 3:53 pm

    Russo pop fly out to right field

    End of 9th inning, 5-5 tie

    1 extra inning

  286. m March 19th, 2011 at 3:53 pm

    That was a good article, thanks, pat. The fact that Cashman referred to the late Steinbrenner as “George” really stood out to me. They must have been very close.

  287. Chase March 19th, 2011 at 3:54 pm

    Will Manny pitch in the 10th inning?

    Lets hope so.

  288. stuckey99 March 19th, 2011 at 3:54 pm

    “…hailed across New England as the architect who rescued the Red Sox from 86 years of championship drought. ”

    Whomever New England remembers/credits for that, rightly or wrongly, the takeaway from the quote is actually “86 years of championship drought.”

    In order to be a savior, there had to be something that required saving.

  289. Chase March 19th, 2011 at 3:55 pm

    Nope, it’s Pope.

  290. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 4:00 pm

    McCoy Single

    Stansberry sac bunt

  291. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 4:01 pm

    Banuelos is supposed to pitch multiple innings in one of the next 2 games. Sabathia starts tomorrow against Phillies

  292. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 4:02 pm

    2 outs, new pitcher, Steve Garrison

  293. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    Thames long fly out to right field warning track

    Montero had a couple of good blocks.

  294. Rich in NJ March 19th, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    Excellent use of the park by Garrison..

  295. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    Bottom of the 10th inning

    Maxwell hard liner to shortstop

  296. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    molina strikeout

    Their Thames looked like our old Thames on that dropped foul ball

  297. MG March 19th, 2011 at 4:09 pm

    GB, are you paying those pigeons overtime today or did you just have to put up the picture of Killer on the last fly by?

  298. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    Parraz foul pop out to catcher

    Game over, 5-5 tie

  299. Chase March 19th, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    Boo, Montero was on deck and Manny was in the bullpen warming up.

  300. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 4:12 pm

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

    Those pigeons just turned into chickens and flew the coop. “Killer” The Superdog from Krypton is flying after them.

  301. Betsy March 19th, 2011 at 4:13 pm

    Sounds like Prior pitched well – I’m sure he’s going to AAA, but I’m really rooting for him to make it here.

  302. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    Prior needs innings in Scranton before he gets to NY.

  303. BoJo March 19th, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    Perhaps having Prior will mitigate against the risk of releasing Mitre…and making either Garcia or Colon the long man in bull pen.

  304. Betsy March 19th, 2011 at 4:21 pm

    Mitre’s just a long man – I’m fine with releasing him if Colon is willing to give it a shot.

  305. BoJo March 19th, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    Betsy–

    Colon said he would be okay with long relief over a week ago.

  306. Betsy March 19th, 2011 at 4:24 pm

    Ok Bojo, thanks

  307. MG March 19th, 2011 at 4:26 pm

    no shoot out to end the game like in the NHL? They could have a one inning ‘sim game’, whoever gets more total bases wins…

  308. MG March 19th, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    Anyone ever heard of this Jeter kid who batted lead off today? 3 hits and a stolen base, maybe he and that Riviera guy who pitched after Garcia could room together.

  309. SAS March 19th, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    GB,

    Many thanks for today’s play-by-play and the others I have read. It is most appreciated out here in “Rattlesnake Country”.

  310. SAS March 19th, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    MG,

    Rumor has it that Jeter and that Rivera guy just might make the team.

  311. MG March 19th, 2011 at 4:32 pm

    SAS, thanks, I was wondering about that all spring :)

  312. GreenBeret7 March 19th, 2011 at 4:32 pm

    SAS, you’re most welcome. very happy to do it. Although, it’s acceptable in “Rattlesnake Country”, I won’t “HIIIISSSSSSS” at you. That’s Erica’s job. I’ll do this again tomorrow, too.
