Yankees postgame

Nick Swisher expressed remorse after the Yankees’ 4-3 win over the Twins.

“It’s sad,” Swisher said. “I didn’t mean to do that.”

He injured Minnesota’s new second baseman, Tsuyoshi Nishioka, with a hard take-out slide to the inside of the bag in the seventh. Swisher broke up the double play, but he also fractured Nishioka’s left fibula. Before Nishioka left Yankee Stadium, Swisher visited with him and told him that he was sorry.

“I’m glad I got a chance to talk to him,” Swisher said. “It definitely eased my mind. He told me, ‘It’s not your fault. Don’t feel bad.’ I know I play hard, but you don’t ever want to go in there trying to hurt somebody.”

Ron Gardenhire gave Swisher a pass.

“It was a good slide,” the Minnesota manager said. “Swisher is a clean player.”

A.J. Burnett was healthier than during his first start when he was plagued by sinus and throat infections, yet the result was the same. He won again. But he has been Mr. April for the Yankees, now 7-0 with a 3.91 ERA in 12 starts during this month in three seasons here. He knows he needs to find the consistency in the rest of the months.

Still, his changeup has been effective for him so far.

“I’ve said all along it’s a big pitch for me,” Burnett said. “Hopefully this year the stubbornness is gone and I can use it more like I did today.”

Joe Girardi likes what he has seen so far. Burnett has tweaked his delivery slightly since last season.

“I’ve seen a difference in his stuff,” Girardi said. “His breaking ball is totally different from last year. It had more of the downward (movement) that we were accustomed to seeing in 2009 and that I watched so much on tape in 2008, when I watched him pitch against us.”

Rafael Soriano pitched a one-hit eighth and certainly had better command than Tuesday night when he walked a career-high-tying three and was charged with a career-high-tying four runs in the 5-4, 10-inning loss. He said his arm was looser in this appearance.

“I felt better today,” Soriano said. Yes, he did meet with the media, unlike after the previous outing.

So now it’s Yankees-Red Sox. The three-game series starts Friday at 2:05 with the Phil Hughes and John Lackey as the starters. The Yankees, as they should, are still expecting Boston to be formidable despite its surprising 0-6 start. This will be the Red Sox’s home opener. 

“They know they’re a very good club and we know that as well,” Girardi said. “They have veterans. I’m sure there’s no panic in that room.”

It will be interesting to check out the mood outside that room, specifically with the fans in the stands.

“There are 156 games left,” Derek Jeter said. “I’m pretty sure they’ll win their share of games. I think a lot of times people pay too much attention to the first week of the season.”

    Again, so happy to read the stuff about Swish, Gardenhire’s take, and Nishioka’s reaction.

    My fervent hope is that he is well enough to play again sooner rather than later.

  2. Betsy April 7th, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    I think the Sox being 0-6 means nothing – it’s just a bad streak and they will be fine; they are too good not to be. It’s an incredibly long season – and there willl be plenty of good and bad streaks, for both teams

    In the end they will be in the playoff hunt as usual, but I don’t begrudge them giving us a 6 game headstart :)

  4. Betsy April 7th, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    Not a 6 game headstart – I think it’s 4, lol.

    “In the end they will be in the playoff hunt as usual, but I don’t begrudge them giving us a 6 game headstart :)

    Not sure I agree that it means nothing and they will find their footing in time to count (if they do indeed find it), but reasoable minds can always disagree, right?

    If the Red Sox wind up losing to the Yankees…their fans will certainly remember the first week of the season.

  7. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 7th, 2011 at 7:37 pm

    that should be reasonable, and maybe jerkface had a vision of what the weekend was going to look like when he said 6!

    Reposting this in a new thread:

    Compare this video from 2010 with Jeter today. Strides’ back to what it was pre-long work. What does this mean going forward?

    “If the Red Sox wind up losing to the Yankees…their fans will certainly remember the first week of the season”

    True that. Any fanbase is going to feel the sting of an 0-6 beginning long after the first week of the season, and every time something goes south for the team, they will remember it more and more. Think lohud and you’ll get it right every time.

    Think I’ll go work out a little bit. I’ve been too stagnant. And now that I’m on antibiotics I’m not worried about it morphing into pneumonia. (Hope that’s a correct assumption!)

    Later sports fans.

    Yes and no, the feed is terrible. Here is the lineup. Sosa’s not playing. But what a lineup! Interesting that they have DeLeon batting 7th. New kid on the block with all that power, but a holey swing; nice way to get him acclimated. Can’t wait to see that pitch he hit.

    Thanks to all who asked, but I got awful news on my car – it’s totalled. The frame is bent (this per the adjuster), etc…. They said the settlement amt would be about $10,600.00. I will never think positive again, lol. I’m livid – absolutely livid – and the idiot who nearly killed me. Now if I want to get a new Honda Accord, I’m going to have to pony up probably close to $15, 000.00 while that guy gets his SUV fixed for a few thousand.

    That Charleston lineup is stacked. And the thing is seems like the Dogs will be a regular if archived feature of milb b/c they are also listed tomorrow night. Imagine watching Sanchez, JR, DeLeon et al daily. Also tonight we get our first look at Greene and Nik Turley, who I have always liked, lefty, pitches tomorrow. Christmas in April. If they stay on sched, Greene and Turley should pitch end of that Charleston week in Lakewood, but weather will likely skew the order.

    Yes, hopefully MM progresses again this year. Next week we’ll get to see him live.

    Hard to taunt Phil Hughes when the Sox starter tomorrow has a 20+ era.

  22. BoJo April 7th, 2011 at 8:11 pm

    BTW Bets–BD was right…you do not have to accept the amount the appraiser offers. Insurance companies try to get the damage apprasied ASAP and make an offer before the victim talks to a lawyer to keep their costs down. The longer it drags out, the more expensive it usually becomes for them to settle.

  23. Giuseppe Franco April 7th, 2011 at 8:11 pm

    Is this series over yet?

    I’ll be glad when Monday is here. I’m already sick of the Red Sox. Couldn’t care less what they’re doing on a day-to-day basis.

  25. BoJo April 7th, 2011 at 8:14 pm

    Re; mypalfish– I am pretty sure he is a former Daily News poster who disliked Redfish, but he could be one of three people. One was sometimes negative but more often funny and even made good comments from time to time. A second was an alcoholic who was often negative, often funny, but just mainly nuts. A third wasn’t funny, just negative. But all 3 were long time Yankee fans….just had different ways of showing it.

    Next time he is around, ask him if he used to post on Daily News…then you’ll have a better idea of what level of troll you may be dealing with.

  26. Betsy April 7th, 2011 at 8:14 pm

    Bojo, my father s/w with the adjuster and he didn’t get any “iffy” feelings from him. He got the idea that the adjuster just didn’t want to put me back in a car that was unsafe. I will speak to him again tonight just to be sure, but I trust my father when it comes to these things. The settlement offer was what my insurance company decided – at least from what I can tell. Maybe the terminology was wrong, but it was my insurance company that inspected the car.

  27. BoJo April 7th, 2011 at 8:15 pm

    Bets–

    You don’t have to sue. But just having talked to a lawyer and having the insurance company know that may bring you more money. They hate going to courts!

    The R*d S*x are due for a huge breakout game offensively .

    That will happen tomorrow night :

    home opener + against our Yankees + facing ” Mr . 87 M . P . H . ” == Win .

  29. Yogi Mantle April 7th, 2011 at 8:16 pm

    I would think that a player like Swisher is, he would feel bad about injuring another player bad enough to break a bone or take them out of the game. Most players don’t want to hurt the other players, even if there is little love lost between them.

    I remember Abreu hitting a Twinkies pitcher with a line drive. That put him into a slump afterward.

    Thinking about the Red Sox start… yes, its just the early part of the season and while wins in the beginning of the season mean the same as wins at the end, it doesn’t mean that the RS season is in jeopardy. The one trouble with this start is that it can get in their heads a bit, it could cause them to prolong slumps or losing streaks because of trying too hard to make up for it.

    They are a very good team, even if I don’t think their pitching is as good as the media people seem to think.

    I also don’t put a whole lot into Baltimore’s hot start. I do think they will be adding pressure to the East, as will Toronto, but I would be surprised if they are able to hold on to the top slot for long. Baltimore has started well before and faded.

    It is not looking good here. The tigers had a 5 run inning. Rob lyerly missed a ball that should have been caught and it just went downhill from there. They got hit after hit on his changeup apparently. Brett was livid. The TY bats have been pretty silent so far in the top of the 5th, just 3 hits so far.

  31. Pat M. April 7th, 2011 at 8:17 pm

    Echo…..Go back to the Boston Globe with you crap……Boston struggled the last 2 weeks of March as Tricia had pointed out….Good players no doubt, but are they a good team at this point ???? Their staff is questionable after Lester and Buckhotz, bullpen after Bard, questionable…..Lefthand dominated lineup, is a concern……Listen, very few clubs are built to deal with a 6 game skid, it’s just that when you open the season on a 6 game losing streak even the real good clubs end up paying a price for it…….They have to go on a 14-4 streak just to be at .500……..They’ll be in the hunt for October…As The Wild Card

  32. BoJo April 7th, 2011 at 8:17 pm

    I’ll see if I can provide you any links on the topic from “experts.” My knowledge of it comes from working in the industry at the start of my career…as well as having read a book on the topic when I was crashed in to.

Frankly, as a fan I could care less if the players talk to you after the games. I understand its important to be accountable for your play on the field, but the only ones who make this an issue are these snotty lil writers who place way too much importance in what they do and act as if its a personal insult players dont talk to them. that said i appreciate all you guys do here to get us access and the coverage you provide just please please please stop acting like this is the biggest deal in the world.

    His changeup was supposedly nasty in ST, but he is still working on it. Probably just one of those nights. How many did he throw? How were his other pitches, if you have any info (I know pitching isn’t your strong point).

    How are Abe Almonte’s AB’s and how does Angelini look at SS?

  49. GreenBeret7 April 7th, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    Never have a collision appraiser that’s recommended by the insurance company. Get at least 2 appraisals.

  50. tyanksfan36 April 7th, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    GB

    Lyerly is living up to his reputation. He missed a ball that anyone could have gotten to(it just rolled right under his glove) and the wheels fell off, they scored 5 runs in the 1 inning. The TY has hardly been able to get the ball out of the infield.

  51. hardwired7 April 7th, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    The change Burnett was throwing today could give him a legitimate additional weapon, particularly against lefties. low-to-mid 80s w/down and away action.

    Also, I think he’s benefiting greatly from having Martin behind the plate. He seems pretty adept @blocking AJ’s breaking pitches in the dirt. The less things AJ has to worry about the better, it seems.

  52. BoJo April 7th, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    Appraisers get judged on how much they save their insurance company, and you should check with each assumption made in his appraisal. How did he classify the condition of the car before the accident? Did he get the mileage right? Did he include all options correctly? What is he basing the valuation on?

    His offer is a part of a negotiation. If you just take it without review, he wins. Usually you can squeeze more money out of it. Especially since the more time it drages, the more expensive it gets for them covering rentals and garage storage.

  53. BoJo April 7th, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    That’s all I’ll say on it…and leave the rest for you to decide. Again, best of luck.

    GB and Bojo, thanks – Bojo, I’ll bring this up with my father tonight and see what he says. Our family mechanic (I know, sounds funny, but we’ve used him for years) told me that he thought he could fix the car and that it would be fine. I guess I’m not sure if he looked at it thoroughly or just gave it a once over……………

  55. m April 7th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    It can’t be a 6-game lead. If we sweep, it’s 7-games. If we win 2, we only gain a game to make it a 5-game lead. Or the other alternatives take it below 4. I think I got it right

    But I’m all a 7-game lead. :)

  56. Jerkface April 7th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    Apparently he was throwing a lot of them in the inning he got rocked. I think he threw 55 pitches through the bottom of the 5th. Apparently he was throwing with less velocity than normal, they said his pitches were elevated.

    Almonte has looked good at the plate but he looked better in the field, he caught a ball at the wall in center that was between the wall and Zoilo, he caught it like backhanded. It was a nice play. Angelini also made a great play on a ball up the middle, he has looked good. Lyerly makes me really wish Bradley Suttle, a lot.

    So Jon Heyman thinks Swisher’s slide was dirty yet Gardenhire doesn’t, and some people actually think Heyman knows something about baseball, when in fact he knows less than nothing.

    Lyerly has looked awful, he should have gotten an error on that ball and as I was typing, he threw a ball into the stands. Its going to be a long season if they leave him out there the whole season.

    Thanks for the detailed info, tyf. Good to hear about Abe and Angelini. I have heard that Suttle’s D has improved; so I will be watching him closely in Trenton next weekend. He is in fact playing 3B tonight. I am assuming Lyerly’s defense is markedly worse.

    I know its only the first game but if he doesn’t get better, I might have to get vocal. I think Angelini just made an error. So far the TY have 1 run, 6 hits and 3 errors. They haven’t hit one out of the infield. The tigers have 7 runs, 8 hits and 1 error.

    Its just the first game though so ill give them time to improve before I start throwing my tomatoes.

  87. West Coast Yankee Fan April 7th, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    Heyman also tweeted:

    “Gardy said Swisher’s play was clean.” (and)

    “Swisher says he told Nishioka, I thought u were going to jump. Also says Nishi told him, it’s not your fault.”

    Good example Jerkface. So, if a pitcher hits a batter is it always intentional? No, sometimes he just makes a bad pitch. And sometimes trying to break up a double play like you are taught to do since high school, you may slide late. Unintentionally.

  105. Rich in NJ April 7th, 2011 at 9:15 pm

    “Just like a pitcher letting one get away from them. Everyone knows it.”

    It’s a much grayer area due to the brushback being part of the game, but if a player gets hurt, it’s often thought to be dirty.

    Again, calling a slide that injures a player late is tantamount to calling it dirty.

  106. West Coast Yankee Fan April 7th, 2011 at 9:16 pm

    No, the word dirty has a specific connotation in sports. A very negative one. Heyman never said that. Case closed. Slam dunk.

    When Heyman says he’s “not in love” with Swiser’s slide, he’s saying “I don’t like it” and the “too late” is just another way to say ‘dirty’. It’s not hard to read into what he was tweeted…

  111. West Coast Yankee Fan April 7th, 2011 at 9:18 pm

    It was unfortunate and unintentional and no one feels worse than Swisher. I am sure there were many fans watching in Minnesota that thought it was late. If that same play happened to Cano – you think fans wouldn’t have been thinking it was a late slide?

    Exaxtly when was he supposed to slide? 30 feet from the bag? It was neither dirty nor late. It was a hard slide. had it been a rolling block/slide, that would have been dirty and in illegal. Of course, he could have came in standing up and sent Nishioka over the left field wall.

    “It was a good play, breaking up the double play,” manager Ron Gardenhire said. “Not even an issue.”

    Shortstop Alexi Casilla said Nishioka would have to learn how his new counterparts in America try to disrupt double plays—and to stay behind the bag while turning two. “In Japan, they play clean,” Casilla said. “They don’t want to hurt anybody.”

    Swisher sought Nishioka out in the X-ray room after the game to apologize. “He definitely eased my mind,” Swisher said. “He told me, ‘Hey, it’s not your fault. Don’t feel bad.’ I know I play hard, but you never want to go in there trying to hurt anybody.” – Yahoo Sports

    “A dirty slide is an intent to injure.

    That’s a false distinction and makes little sense.

    Sometimes slides that are not late are intended to injure.

    As for intent, there is also recklessness, ie, a conscious disregard of a known risk.

    Exactly, a “late” slide implies time to take another route to avoid said player because you realize the play is over; yet you slide into the player anyway. The connotation of late = dirty, not above board.

    Should I be insulted or do I need to know Heyman’s intent before I am?

    Keith Law would be the biggest queen in senegal. That’s for sure.

    when I was passin’ the hooch on the back field in spring training with Kettlecorn Willsby under ole Jimmy L, he used to say, ‘Late slide just like woman’s late, you know things gonna get dirty’. He had 10 illegitimate kids, but he could whip a stick.

    Heyman’s next tweet is even stranger: “I honk for lunch companions #desperateandlonely”

    Honk:

    6. ‘A person who is so blindly devoted to something or some person/group, especially regarding sports, that they continue to stand their ground no matter the opposition.’

    Tin Cup ( The Original Randy I )…..Gardenhire was a tough as nails 2nd baseman and he’d know…..My shins have crater like scars from guys cleated me on dp takeouts…..Did you see Arnie & Jack teeing off at The Masters today ????

    Also why preface the statement with

    ““I’m sure all the yankee honks will come after me,”

    If he wasn’t calling it dirty, what need would there be for us “Honks” to go after him if his statement was innocuous.

    A late slide is taking a player out after the play is over and is closer to jumping into the fielder or bag than an actual slide. Again, Swisher did not slide late.

    Please don’t continue to expose the truth, West Coast can’t handle it.

    pat m-

    i would be fine with gardenhire as a yankee manager if he was ever so inclined and there was an opening. good baseball man.

    i would have liked seeing arnie and jack tee off, but i was out at the range working on my lefty swing. i do that to balance out my body. you get too one sided if you only swing on one side.

  173. J. Alfred Prufrock April 7th, 2011 at 9:53 pm

    AUstin Jackson catches everyhting, but Os take the lead. Oh, well.

    Tin Cup….Tell the truth, you’re doing the lefty swing for tomorrow’s hustle round……You’re golf’s equivalent to Fast Eddie …Bythe way what did you card yesterday ???? I think I mentioned a 74 yesterday

    GB and Tyanks,

    Thanks for all of the minor league updates.

  182. randy l. April 7th, 2011 at 10:01 pm

    pat m-

    people do get ticked off when i’m playing lefty on the front nine and they bet me on the back nine , and i start hitting the ball righty.

    it’s not my fault they didn’t look in my bag and see half righty and half lefty clubs.

    i’m not touching 74 yet. maybe by summer.

  183. GreenBeret7 April 7th, 2011 at 10:10 pm

    Fran, I’ll have more up on the board in later days. Just need to stay awake long enough to do it.

  184. Fran the original April 7th, 2011 at 10:21 pm

    Thanks again GB.

    “If the Yankees had started 0-6, not sure it’s nothing is what would be said?”

    Thought the same thing, Pat. I played it out in my mind, reversing the scenario. The Sux come into the Stadium with a 4 and 2 record while the Yanks are 0-6. Worse, the Sux would have been 5 and 1 if it weren’t for an unusual outing by their “excellent” 8th inning man.

    How many on this forum do you think would be singing the praises of the Yanks and saying the 0-6 means start “nothing.”? How many wouldn’t be convinced that “the old AJ” was back, just as they knew he would be?

    I personally would be walking around without a head as I counseled patience and guaranteed that the Yanks would be in the playoffs.

    ***********

    Pat M – I think you called the whole thing right. My favorite part was when you said the Sux would be there in the end – AS THE WILD CARD! Though I think you may have been being too generous, I can understand how you could get there.

    :)
