Britton vs. Yankees

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

WEATHER: Bright and sunny, and as Joe Girardi said pregame, it’s unusually calm. There’s usually a lot of wind, but today’s not too bad for this place. The flags are blowing out to center field, but it’s not as overwhelming as usual.

UMPIRES: HP Manny Gonzalez, 1B Bill Welke, 2B Chad Fairchild, 3B Darren Budahn

ON THE LINE: Sergio Mitre is still in the rotation competition, but he seems to be the most natural fit in the open long-relief spot. That’s technically on the line, but in reality, the most important thing we’ll learn today is whether Curtis Granderon’s oblique injury leaves him doubtful for Opening Day.

OUT OF THE BULLPEN FOR THE YANKEES: Joba Chamberlain is making his first appearance since a sore oblique. Mark Prior, Luis Ayala and Romulo Sanchez are also on this trip and likely to pitch.

OUT OF THE BULLPEN FOR THE ORIOLES: LHP Michael Gonzalez and RHP Jason Berken.

LATE SCRATCH: Still waiting for any sort of update on Granderson’s oblique. The Yankees have seen a series of oblique injuries this spring (including three guys player in today’s game: Chamberlain, Golson and Mitre).

LIKE A FOX: Orioles first baseman Jake Fox has seven home runs, the most of any major leaguer this spring.

UPDATE, 1:27 p.m.: Golson singled in his first at-bat back. Have to think he could sneak onto the Opening Day roster if this Granderson injury is serious.

Also, it’s 1-0 Orioles after an inning and a half. Mitre allowed a run on two hits in the first inning.

UPDATE, 1:45 p.m.: The Yankees have tied it on an RBI grounder to short by Teixeira. Really, Mesa created the run. He singled, took second on Swisher’s single and alertly advanced to third on a ball in the dirt.

UPDATE, 2:05 p.m.: Might see some of the minor league pitchers today. Mitre is struggled in his second appearance against the Orioles. In this third inning he’s balked in one run and allowed two home runs, a solo shot by Jake Fox and a two-run homer by Luke Scott. It’s 5-1 Orioles.

UPDATE, 2:19 p.m.: Might be a little more wind up high because Mark Reynolds just went deep on a ball that looked like a fly out off the bat. Instead, it was a one-out home run off Joba Chamberlain, who entered the game in the fourth after Mitre struggled through his three innings.

    Colon has shown enough to stay on the merits, I doubt that anything Mitre does will be determinative of that.

    If Grandy is out for a couple weeks then that’s what they got Jones for (and what I wish they had been able to sign Damon for)

    Citing a radio report is a common practice, because then people can’t ask for links/verification.

    “the orioles offense could be very good this year…”

    Certainly should be better than last year when they were the 2nd worst offensive team in the AL. They have a chance to be more like an average AL offense this time around.

  43. GreenBeret7 March 22nd, 2011 at 1:37 pm

  47. stuckey99 March 22nd, 2011 at 1:41 pm

    Abe,

    I seriously doubt given Granderson was a late scratch that the Yankees have already determined he’s going to miss Opening Day. That would be very, very specific.

    I also seriously doubt if the Yankees had actually announced that definitively, no one else by MLBR would aware of it.

    That none of the beat writers are tweeting the MLBR report is also suspicious.

    If you indeed heard what you say you heard, I suspect it was speculation, given how much time Chamberlain went between appearances, which is what most of the beat writers are doing.

  48. GreenBeret7 March 22nd, 2011 at 1:41 pm

    AmyKNelson Scout who saw Bartolo Colon last night was impressed, movement on pitches, hitting 94. If he can keep it up will be “a hell of a signing.”

  62. Irreverent Discourse March 22nd, 2011 at 1:51 pm

    You guys can “seriously doubt” whatever you want… the fact of the matter is that he only has 9 days to recover from an oblique injury, no matter how serious. That is HIGHLY unlikely.

    No since all pitchers get lit up at some point. I would hope it wouldn’t be looked at any more askance than if it happened to any other Yankee rotation hopeful.

    I don’t want Mitre to get lit up. It may sound odd, but if Mitre ends up being cut, then you don’t really want it to be because if one or two bad ST outings.

    Freddie might be feeling a little relieved inside, though.

  84. BoJo March 22nd, 2011 at 2:02 pm

    Mitre getting lit up lowers his trade value.

    I personally hope Cashman bundles Mitre, R Sanchez, Luis Ayala, and Steve Garrison to his buddy Kevin Towers in Arizona with a wink understanding that we can get Mitre back later for prospects if needed.

    I think Towers was willing to help Cash out on a sign and trade before, so he might be amenable to such a deal.

    “Heck, Baltimore could score runs when everything else about them was falling apart”

    13th in runs scored last season. Even with the additions they made, it’s an average offense at best. Lot better than last year’s considerably below average offense, but average nonetheless.

  88. Fran the original March 22nd, 2011 at 2:03 pm

    Mitre not helping his cause. I still say Brackman will be called up sooner than later. He just needs to get some AAA innings under his belt.

  104. m March 22nd, 2011 at 2:08 pm

    Baltimore’s problem has been poor pitching. Mitre almost got out of that one. Went back to the well once too many times.

    Ravich: “Mitre likely to be the long reliever.” (based on what?)

  105. tyanksfan36 March 22nd, 2011 at 2:08 pm

    Brackman pitching at the minor league complex.

  106. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 22nd, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    Ugh Sergio.

    :(

    “13th in runs scored last season. Even with the additions they made, it’s an average offense at best. Lot better than last year’s considerably below average offense, but average nonetheless.”

    Well let me put it this way. The AL East, Yankees and Sux in particular, always knew that no lead was safe with the Os. On top of it, the O’s had the best second-half record in the majors last season.

    If you are using comparison stats to define your average, I see that as a mistake since you could have 10 teams with phenomenal offenses, such that the next 3 may be considered “average” by placement, and may be fantastic.

    Heads out of stats and watching the games tells a lot of the story.

    In all fariness to Sergio, he is really about a 3 inning guy…after that, IIRC he starts to get hit. I’m sure JF will provide a more detailed analysis of that comment….and validate or refute it…just going from memory and impression I have always had of him.

    As for the Orioles, I wouldn’t overreact to them having success after a managerial change. It’s easier to play well when you are already 50 games out. They are better, but they wont have a winning record

  119. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 22nd, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    “Baltimore’s problem has been poor pitching. ”

    Bingo. And mel, interestingly enough, Buck turned that right around. Poor Brian Matusz, an extremely talented pitcher, had a losing record until Buck showed up. Really causes you pause for thought about whether it’s the manager, the pitching coach, or a combination.

    Just about all of the Orioles starters ended up with winning records over the period of time when Buck took over. I think Matsuz might have had something like a 6-0 record, or maybe won six in a row in the second half.

    Good for the Orioles.

  120. Jerkface March 22nd, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    Well let me put it this way. The AL East, Yankees and Sux in particular, always knew that no lead was safe with the Os. On top of it, the O’s had the best second-half record in the majors last season.

    If you are using comparison stats to define your average, I see that as a mistake since you could have 10 teams with phenomenal offenses, such that the next 3 may be considered “average” by placement, and may be fantastic.

    Heads out of stats and watching the games tells a lot of the story.

    The Orioles offense and bullpen did not improve at all in the 2nd half. Kevin Millwood, Guthrie, and Matusz improved. Millwood is no longer on the team. Some of the pitchers got worse.

    A good offense scores 800 runs, a great offense scores 900 runs, most offenses score 700 runs, bad ones score 600 runs.

    The Orioles have moved from 600 to 700. Orioles scored 741 in 09, 613 in 2010. They will probably score around 750 in 2011.

  121. Mell March 22nd, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    “On top of it, the O’s had the best second-half record in the majors last season.”

    Not so much. There 37-37 record after the Allstar Break was good for 5th best record….in the AL East.

    Really? I don’t see that making a whit of sense. If that were the case they would have played well for Tremblay when they were 50 games out. They didn’t.

    I think I’ll bet on them having a winning record.

    Right now, I guess that’s the scouting report on him.

  129. m March 22nd, 2011 at 2:17 pm

    If the Orioles improve it’s because they have some major league hitters now. And the young pitchers won’t be so deer in the headlights. Not because of a managerial change.

    They won when Trembley took over. So they took off the interim manager tag. Where’s Trembley now?

  130. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 22nd, 2011 at 2:18 pm

    I should have said since Showalter took over.

    • Only the Twins (35-21) had a better record in the AL than the Orioles’ 34-23 after Showalter took over. His 34 wins in 57 games were more than previous managers Dave Trembley and Juan Samuel (32) compiled in 105 games.

    • The pitching staff’s ERA pre-Showalter was over 5.50, but fell to 3.54 in the last 57 games. Just the A’s (3.23) and Angels (3.40) were better. In Showalter’s 57 games, the Orioles got 36 quality starts from their pitchers

  131. Fran the original March 22nd, 2011 at 2:18 pm

    I think the O’s will be about .500 because they are in the AL East. But I do have 2 of their OFs on my fantasy team.

  141. Jerkface March 22nd, 2011 at 2:22 pm

    -

    The orioles offense probably scored 6 runs last year at some point. Don’t overestimate them.

  142. BoJo March 22nd, 2011 at 2:22 pm

    So, in actually LOOKING at his game logs for 2010, Sergio appeared in 27 games, and went more than 3 innings only four times. In those outings, he gave up 3, 1, 5, and 0 runs…The most he gave up while pitching 3 or under was 3 runs on one 3 inning outing, 2 runs on a 2 inning outing , and 2 runs on a 1 inning outing. on 2 occassions, he gave up 1 run while not getting anyone out. 7 bad outings out ot 27.

    When he pitched 1 inning, he had 7 games of shutting out the other team.

    So who outta NY, Boston, Tampa, Toronto, and Baltimore will be well under .500?

    A 5-team division that all play one another 18-19 times cannot produce 5 .500(ish) teams.

  146. Crawdaddy March 22nd, 2011 at 2:24 pm

    It is just one bad pitch. I would rather see Joba give up a HR then a bunch of hits.

    Last year 4 out of 5 AL east teams finished over .500. I suppose it is possible that the Os could overtake the Jays, but I think the jays have better pitching.

  162. Fran the original March 22nd, 2011 at 2:29 pm

  163. Jerkface March 22nd, 2011 at 2:29 pm

    Stuckey…..I can see Baltimore being a .500 club outside the AL East

    The O’s and Jays probably would have had a few more playoff berths if they spent their time in the central or west, but that doesn’t help the argument of ‘these teams are going to be under .500 next season’ because they do play in the AL east.

  164. BoJo March 22nd, 2011 at 2:30 pm

    I don’t really care how many games the O’s win, but it is sure great to see Buck back managing. He deserves to be in that role, and I am sure he’ll provide a lot of great entertainment and quotes this season.

    Joba’s hung them when he’s healthy.

    So, hanging one might not be a product of being on the mend.

    Main thing is that he’s healthy. Which he probably is because he’s dialing it up.

  170. stuckey99 March 22nd, 2011 at 2:33 pm

    “stuckey, is it mathematically impossible for 5 teams in the same division to be above .500 (based on the unbalanced schedule)’

    Impossible?

    Certainly not.

    Improbable?

    Highly.

    Understand it’s highly likely both the Yanks and Sox will win over 90 games, perhaps well over. When they each play their division rivals no less than 72 times, some of that comes from the hide of their divisions rivals.

    Tampa probably also projects to be a mid/high-80-something win team. Toronto perhaps .500+.

    The mathematical improbability is ALL these teams playing each other somewhat evenly and making up all the ground on the other divisions/interleague.

    Here’s a homework assignment for anyone interested. Find a division since 1995 in which all teams were within 5 games of .500…?

    They need better luck on the farm system, almost all of their prospects crashed last year except for Britton. And their graduated players all took steps back. Jones and Markakis and Wieters have yet to ‘break out’. Markakis is good of course, but not as good as he should be.

  174. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 22nd, 2011 at 2:34 pm

    Fran, it’s going to be an interesting watch. Toronto had an horrendous problem with their young arms going down, and you have to question what was happening with their coaching staff for that to continue to happen. (Do you remember the season when the Yanks brought on a new conditioning coach and just about everyone on the team ended up with hammies?)

    The Jays have some very good pitching.

    The Orioles have some very good pitching.

    They both have new staffs.

    I am very excited to watch the AL East unfold.

    That goes to show you how high Prior’s standards are, to the Yankees probable. benefit.

    He could slide into a late inning role on most (if not all) major league teams right now, but the look of him,

  193. BoJo March 22nd, 2011 at 2:42 pm

    In my mind, the issue with Prior is not so much that he won’t recover his fastball, it is that he never really had surgery to correct his shoulder problem, and it could blow out at any minute. I am not watching today, but it would be interesting if he is still using those inverted W mechanics that put such a strain on the elbow and shoulder.

    Plus, I think he still throws the slitter…another troublesome pitch on elbows.

    Fran, never drop Wieters. Tell you what. I will take him in a NYC heartbeat if you get rid of him. To me Buck is a managerial savior. I would sure give it a look see before you do anything. It isn’t like the remaining catching pool is great.

    Has Maxwell hit a homer yet this spring? I want to hear what Sterling’s call would be…

    “Maxwell Silver HAMMERS that ball..?”

    “‘It’s definitely, hands down the best lineup since I’ve been here,” right fielder Nick Markakis told MLB.com. ‘You look at our lineup and as much depth as we have, we’ve got to have the the deepest lineup on a team in all of baseball.’”

    Deepest lineup on a team in all of baseball named the Orioles*

    *does not include Yankees, Red Sox, Rays

  216. stuckey99 March 22nd, 2011 at 2:51 pm

    Jerkface – question.

    If the Yanks decide in 8 days that they’ll likely activate Cerivelli when he’s healthy, and expect him back fairly soon, who goes north temporarily?

  217. Jerkface March 22nd, 2011 at 2:52 pm

  218. Rich in NJ March 22nd, 2011 at 2:52 pm

    Sterling would be more likely to do the call for flyout than a HR.

    I wouldnt give up on wieters yet. He’s shown signs of what he’s capable of producing consistently. Im just hoping posey doesnt have that sophomore relapse. I tried drafting a lot of the ‘sophomore sensations’ last year and it didnt pan out. Posey is my only one this year.

  221. m1kew March 22nd, 2011 at 2:52 pm

    It seems to me that the best resolution for the Yankees pitching conundrum would be to try to trade Mitre (may not have a lot of value but should have some as he is a likely starter for some teams) and if trading him is not possible then release him. That leaves Nova as the fourth starter and probably Colon (on the strength of his showing so far this Spring) as the fifth starter with Garcia in the pen as the long man/6th starter. Then if either Colon or Garcia falters the Yankees drop that guy and bring up … Prior (who needs the time in SWB to stretch out his arm so he can assume the long man role).

    This strategy should get the Yankees through the first two or three months at which time Cashman can see what the cost might be for a front line starter and compare that cost vs the readiness of the group of young starters in SWB or Trenton to move to the big club. Hopefully the solution will be internal as the cost of a front line starter is likely to be quite high.

    In the meantime patience seems to be the best course going forward.

    I can hear it in my mind now that you mention it…

    “Maxwell Silver HAMMERS that ball…it is high, it is far, it is….a ground ball to short, and the shortstop makes a great play!”

    “Well, Suyn, I really thought Maxwell got all of that, but the replay shows he just missed it and hit it off the end of his bat…oh well, you can’t predict baseball.”

  226. stuckey99 March 22nd, 2011 at 2:55 pm

  229. Jerkface March 22nd, 2011 at 2:56 pm

    Wildcard pick. Interesting.

    40 man roster management is an important part of being a GM, they aren’t going to put Romine on the 40 man to cover some temporary amount of weeks, nor do they do the same to Montero. Putting a player on the 40 man increases their minor league salary and burns an option.

  230. Pat M. March 22nd, 2011 at 2:56 pm

    I was on a conference call, did I hear correctly that Kruk went on the record with Gonzalez hitting 50 dingers and 50 doubles ????

  231. Jerkface March 22nd, 2011 at 2:57 pm

    If Montero goes north its because they think he is going to stick. And if they decide they are committed to Cervelli as backup they’ll just use Molina and get rid of him. Its unlikely he would be claimed on waivers as well.

  232. BoJo March 22nd, 2011 at 2:58 pm

    _____________
    I think there are going to be several openings on the 40 man roster very soon, including Mitre, R Sanchez, and perhaps Garrison. Marte and Corona can be moved to 60 day list…So if they Yankees want to add Montero, they can take him north, and send him back down when Cervelli is ready.

  233. Nick in SF March 22nd, 2011 at 2:58 pm

  234. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 22nd, 2011 at 2:58 pm

    .600 winning percentage 2 months under Buck.

    Not bad for an AL East team.

    Buck’s Nanny McPhee.

  235. stuckey99 March 22nd, 2011 at 2:59 pm

    Taking for logic for sake of dicussion, and given Molina’s utter lack of work, this suggests two consequences to me.

    1.) Montero will go north.

    2.) He will stay there, and Cervelli will be traded or optioned back to AAA.

    Agree?

  236. pat March 22nd, 2011 at 2:59 pm

    BryanHoch Rafael Soriano allowed a solo homer in 1 2/3 innings vs. Blue Jays minor leaguers this afternoon. 1.2IP, 1ER, 1H, 1HR

  243. BoJo March 22nd, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    But per JF’s good point about buring options, it could go either way. The plus of taking Montero is to expose him to some big league action early on…but if he really needs more work on defense, then JF is probably right.

    No way on the 50 homers. His new home park is not very homer friendly. 35-36 would be my guess. 50 doubles? Yeah, that I can see fairly easily.

    Granderson has been hitting well this spring, so it would be lousy if he is out for the start of the season. Andruw Jones is still a pretty good defensive outfielder, so I am glad that the Yankees have him for a backup. As much as I love Damon as a player, I would not want him starting the season as an outfielder for the Yankees.

    “No idea when that is, and all the while Romine is losing development time. Just not a very good plan.”

    A 80 year-old Austin Romine sits on his hover-rocker, with his great grandson on his bionic knee, weaving stories about this time in the farm system of the NY Yankees, in the old Major Leagues (Now the GPBL – Global Professional Baseball League).

    He speaks fondly of his time in the game to little 8-year old Billy Romine, a die-hard Euro-Trashers fan, but when Billy has to go to Virtual Little League practice, Papa Romine secretly laments those 2 and 1/2 weeks in April 2011 where he sat on the big club’s bench, which effectively ruined his Major League dreams.

    Ayala and Prior are two guys that probably deserve a major league spot right now that won’t get them, and may never, for the Yankees.

    Winners of the 2060 and 2061 so-called “Real” World series, the Trashers play a brand of throwback, fundamentally sound baseball, a product of the European Union’s emphasis on developing the game and exposing their youth to in the 2030′s during the “Great Soccer Crisis”, when the world suddenly collectively and very correctly decided Futbol was a colossal bore.

    They are managed by Derec Jeter, the Hall-of-Fame player/manager grandson of the old Major League’s all-time hit leader Derek Jeter, who is a Euro-national hero in his own right given his world-renound exploits bedding the entire Victoria’s Secret Mentalogue.

    The Trashers are favored to win the 2062 Eastern (Hemisphere) division, but fans are worried a lack of a steady 5th starter may bring their season down in flames.

  342. champ809 March 22nd, 2011 at 3:45 pm

    If Montero makes the team and can hold his own with the glove on the days he catches then he will not see the minors unless it’s a rehab assignment.

    kate, you manage to play into jerkface’s greatest need – to feel important and wanted. keep asking him questions and you will be his greatest friend.

    I on the other hand have no need for anything he puts out. And therein lies the problem, despite his protests otherwise.

  393. Jerkface March 22nd, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    I came to a blog to feel important and wanted, and then waged war on everyone and everything because thats how you make friends :)

  394. Jerkface March 22nd, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    I thought my greatest need was to ruin baseball for everyone? Which is it? :x

  395. upstate kate March 22nd, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    Trisha
    I am far from Jerkface’s greatest friend, but I do enjoy his posts as I do most of the posters here. Sometimes I even get a laugh out of Ruby Tuesday.

  396. Irreverent Discourse March 22nd, 2011 at 4:12 pm

    In debates among intellectuals, the physicist doesn’t tell the chemist what’s what in chemistry… yet with baseball those who are more informed are chastised. Incredible.

  397. Patrick March 22nd, 2011 at 4:12 pm

    All joking aside, Jerkface is one of the best posters on this blog.

    “I came to a blog to feel important and wanted, and then waged war on everyone and everything because thats how you make friends :)

    As I said, for some people negative attention is better than no attention. That’s your way of feeling wanted.

    Oh well.

  399. Jerkface March 22nd, 2011 at 4:15 pm

    As I said, for some people negative attention is better than no attention. That’s your way of feeling wanted.

    You’ve just described your internet boyfriend CR9! Not me! what a twist.

  401. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 22nd, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    Kate, I think the punchline here is that I have no difficulty with anybody befriending anybody else.

    But do a little scorekeeping here for future reference.

    When you are around, notice the number of times I will initiate any reference to anything put out by jerkface. Then notice the number of times he will feel the need to make comment on just about anything I post.

    Sometime when you have your own private stalker, come and talk to me about it. I know you won’t take offense to my liking the person!

    ;)

  402. Jerkface March 22nd, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    I can’t believe someone is discussing my points on a discussion blog T_T

  403. Irreverent Discourse March 22nd, 2011 at 4:24 pm

    It’s not stalking if you do it to everyone… duh.

  404. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 22nd, 2011 at 4:24 pm

    You know, you’re right. I didn’t think of it that way.

  405. Patrick March 22nd, 2011 at 4:26 pm

    I know I’m right, thank you.

    trisha -

    You might consider the fact, the handle one chooses for themself says more about them, then what they post.

    As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, and that poster has given us the perfect picture of themself with the handle chosen.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    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.

    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.
