Yankees pregame

Posted by: Brian Heyman - Posted in Misc on Apr 17, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Brian Heyman here at Yankee Stadium for this series finale against the Rangers. As you could see in the previous post, Alex Rodriguez is not in the lineup. The oblique/lower back problem that forced him out of Saturday’s game is still not right. Girardi talked to him and A-Rod said he was sore.

“We’ll take it day by day,” said Girardi, who didn’t totally rule out having him for one at-bat tonight if he feels able. “We’ll shoot for Tuesday. If he can’t go Tuesday, we’ll shoot for Wednesday.”

Also, did you see who isn’t leading off against a righty starter? Derek Jeter is batting first against Alexi Ogando and Brett Gardner is hitting ninth. The leadoff platoon may be off for a bit. Gardner is off to a dreadful .146 start.

“If we get him going, we can move him back up if we want,” Girardi said.

Girardi said the Yankees were close to sending Phil Hughes down to AAA.

“But after talking everything out, we realized there’s something going on here. Let’s be smart here,” Girardi said.

So Hughes went on the DL. He’s supposed to start a long-toss program today to try to build arm strength. While Hughes has said he feels fine physically, Girardi also revealed that the 24-year-old righty has been put on anti-inflammatories.

“I think you can look at every pitcher’s arm and probably see some inflammation,” Girardi said.

The Yankees have named their starters for the two games in Toronto. A.J. Burnett gets Tuesday night and Bartolo Colon takes the Wednesday night start. There’s an off day on Thursday, the second of the week. Girardi said they were undecided on the rotation for the weekend series in Baltimore.

    Yankees trying to cover ML rules for placing Hughes on DL.

    Go New Orleans!!!

  4. Niblick April 17th, 2011 at 5:56 pm

    Hughes probably is injured; and he’s been hiding it and the Yankees coaches and trainers are too stupid to realize it. Not the first time they’ve missed an injury.

  5. Crawdaddy April 17th, 2011 at 6:00 pm

    If Hughes is injured and he’s been hiding it then he’s pretty dumb.

  6. BoJo April 17th, 2011 at 6:02 pm

    It would be great if ht estrengthening programs had Phil coming back throwing 95 to 96 mph. Manny Baneulos had a similar bump after working out to recover for his surgery last year. This stint oin DL may have a positive side effect…who knows?

  7. LGY April 17th, 2011 at 6:02 pm

    Only a True Hughes Hater would think Phil is hiding an injury

  8. West Coast Yankee Fan April 17th, 2011 at 6:04 pm

    This always gets me. Typical Western medicine. You don’t even know what’s wrong and you prescribe pharmaceuticals, probably a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug.

    Lovely side effects are possible of course like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, decreased appetite, rash, dizziness, headache, and drowsiness and in some cases fluid retention, leading to edema.

    There are a variety of natural NSAID alternatives, Lance Armstrong’s Livestrong Foundation is a good source for information on this.

  9. tyanksfan36 April 17th, 2011 at 6:04 pm

    I think they can put them on the DL for a dead arm, obviously there is something wrong if he cant get his fastball above 90. I think the Rays did that with Neimann and Davis last season when they were struggling.

  10. NYY fan in NH April 17th, 2011 at 6:06 pm

    I see all the babying of Hughes and his pitch counts and innings limits have paid off for the Yankees. I don’t know how this team can stay on top with this rotation as it is. Eventhough Colon has been great, how long can you count on him? I foresee a trade if Hughes has a more serious issue? He was suppose to be the glue, but now AJ becomes more critical.

    THE RANGERS WIN !!!!!! NYR

  11. tyanksfan36 April 17th, 2011 at 6:06 pm

    3 up 3 down for Marshall for the 3rd straight inning, unfortunately the TY has also gone 3 up 3 down for the 2nd straight inning. He gets no run support.

  12. Crawdaddy April 17th, 2011 at 6:07 pm

    WCYF quoting something from Lance Armstrongs foundation, a guy that is accused of taking PED’s.

  13. West Coast Yankee Fan April 17th, 2011 at 6:09 pm

    What a nonsensical statement. His foundation does amazing work educating people and helping to raise money to battle Cancer and other diseases.

  14. Joe from Long Island April 17th, 2011 at 6:13 pm

    So, WCYF, are you saying that you – who haven’t examined Phil Hughes, and only know what you read somewhere – have true wisdom here, while the Yankees’ doctors/trainers do not?

  15. LGY April 17th, 2011 at 6:14 pm

    Everyone is a doctor in the internet age.

  16. West Coast Yankee Fan April 17th, 2011 at 6:17 pm

    Not at all. I am saying that all too often doctors are trained and quick to prescribe pharmaceuticals which often can have harmful side effects when there are other natural alternatives.

    If the doctors have prescribed NSAID’s they think there is or have seen some evidence of inflammation. I have some personal experience with this.

  17. BD (Boston Dave) April 17th, 2011 at 6:17 pm

    let Jon Heyman settle this dispute

  18. blake April 17th, 2011 at 6:20 pm

    Ah yes that voodoo western medicine that is constantly increasing the life expectancy of humans…..we should get rid of that stuff.

  19. West Coast Yankee Fan April 17th, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    Jon Heyman says there is an unknown doctor involved.

  20. Rich in NJ April 17th, 2011 at 6:22 pm

    I like western medicine. I just don’t like how it’s funded. But I digress..

  21. Joe from Long Island April 17th, 2011 at 6:22 pm

    If the doctors have prescribed NSAID?s they think there is or have seen some evidence of inflammation.

    That’s likely a fair conclusion.

  22. West Coast Yankee Fan April 17th, 2011 at 6:22 pm

    Blake I’m not going too far with this, I never said Western medicine was voodoo anything. I just made a comment on the Hughes thing. Believe what you will. I will say that tens of thousands of people die each year by being wrongly diagnosed or medicated. That’s a fact.

  23. Niblick April 17th, 2011 at 6:24 pm

    Every athlete hides injuries. Particularly young players, whose careers are not yet established, and who do not have the financial resources that a veteran would have. It is not being a “True Hughes Hater” to say that and if LGY really thinks that, (s)he’s sorely mistaken. Neither is it dumb. It is entirely understandable to anyone who has been around athletes.

    It is, however, the responsiblity of the team, and those who are supposed to look out for the well-being of the players (coaches, trainers, etc.) to keep an eye out for injuries, particularly in young players. Just like Joe Torre shouldn’t have taken the word of Scott Proctor that he was ready to pitch every day, the Yankees “brain trust” needs to continually and carefully assess their young players for the state of their health, and not just rely on the player’s word that he is ok.

  24. Eroc April 17th, 2011 at 6:26 pm

    Heyman also called the doctor a headcase.

  25. Rich in NJ April 17th, 2011 at 6:27 pm

    The difference between Hughes and Proctor, however, is that the Yankees consider Hughes a very big part of their future. Proctor was basically cannon fodder.

    That’s meant to be an explanation, not a justification.

  26. jackamir April 17th, 2011 at 6:30 pm

    Why don’t they try Acupuncture or maybe Voodoo dolls. Who knows maybe it’s because Phil threw too many innings last year and his arm needs just old fashioned R & R.

  27. Yank 97 April 17th, 2011 at 6:31 pm

    Reason Knicks/Celtics game is at 7 PM – Bruins played yesterday, so they couldn’t play the game Saturday (both play in the same building).

    NY Rangers playoff game was on at 3:30, so they probably didn’t want to put an NBA and NHL playoff games on concurrently.

    Knicks/Cs was too appealing to put on at 1 PM, that spot is always reserved for the unattractive series (like Spurs/Grizzles today).

    Their only options were 7 or 9:30 PM today.

    And tens of thousands of people die each year because of quacks and bozos. Not to mention hundreds of thousands, or millions, due to lack of medical care. That’s a fact, also.

    So what’s your point?

  30. Betsy April 17th, 2011 at 6:38 pm

    Not exactly good news on Alex

  31. Betsy April 17th, 2011 at 6:39 pm

    Actually, it was Phil that convinced the Yankees not to send him to AAA – they were going to until he said he didn’t think pitching would help him

  32. Betsy April 17th, 2011 at 6:39 pm

    He did hide his rib injury…………..

    Phil says his arm is dead, that he felt like a reliever who’s thrown 4 days in a row…….that’s pretty alarming

    Never mind Joe, it’s just another viewpoint on pharmaceuticals and their overuse. No big deal.

    Peace.

  45. SAS April 17th, 2011 at 6:48 pm

    Betsy,

    Hopefully, Hughes will be fine even if it takes a while. As you call him, a kid, isn’t always on the up and up if he thinks ‘it’ will go away.

    Not when it leads to contentious debate for hours. I will say this, the United States is 35th to 41st I believe in life expectancy depending on what study you want to use. Japan and Hong Kong are number one and two in life expectancy.

    The only fool here is complaining about Hughes getting anti-inflammatory drugs, prescribed by the team doctor I might add (a real buffoon, I’m sure), when you don’t have a clue why it was prescribed.

  54. Crawdaddy April 17th, 2011 at 6:55 pm

    Did Marshall tired in the 6th when he gave up a couple of runs?

    Good job by Marshall and you. As per the triple you mentioned earlier, Abe Almonte just continues to hit and hit and hit. Hopefully he stays healthy and shows what he can do this year.

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

    If one is prescribed an AID then there is inflammation found or they suspect there is inflammation. It’s not the diagnosis that’s the issue, (although tens of thousands are misdiagnosed and given the wrong medications every year), it’s the side effects and the reality that there are effective alternatives that are much better for you. Doctors are too quick to prescribe pharmaceuticals; especially when they don’t know what’s wrong which may very well be the case with Hughes.

  57. West Coast Yankee Fan April 17th, 2011 at 6:58 pm

    That’s just my perspective, it’s not right or wrong, it’s just mine.

  58. mick April 17th, 2011 at 6:58 pm

    If Knicks lose 10 points or less tonight, I consider that’s a victory for them.

    Knicks are going to win tonight, I guarantee it.

    I guess phil spoke to feliciano about how ones arm feels when they throw 4 days in a row. Pedro is the resident expert on that subject.

    Bets–

    You keep on keeping on. You have every right to talk about whatever you like.

    Craw–scroll dude! I scroll past medical advice and anti-Joba/Gardner stuff every day!

  61. tyanksfan36 April 17th, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    Craw

    I think so, started out with a walk, then 2 singles and a sac fly later he had given up the 2 runs. He had a rough 1st inning but had perfect 2nd – 4th innings, in the 5th he allowed a lead off walk but retired the next 3 in a row. Maybe the long top of the 5th got to him too, the TY scored 4 runs in a long inning.

    Take this for what it’s worth.

    A while back I had a case of shoulder tendonitis.

    The main symptom was a kind of a “dead feeling” in the deltoid muscle.

    Way more than just tiredness, etc. Almost like a numbness but not quite the same because I still had feeling in the area. No pain.

    I rested my arm but the feeling would just not go away. It persisted.

    Was prescribed an anti-inflammatory and the problem was gone in about 2 weeks.

    Never returned.

    “Everyone is a doctor in the internet age.”

    don’t forget being a baseball expert too.

    our very own jerkface said he could manage as well as girardi just this past week.

    the funny thing about that is that i think, rather than have a sabermetrician manage, i’d rather bypass human geeks all together and just have a really smart computer do it. if someone is just going to play out a programmed strategy the way sabermetricians do, why not just skip the middleman and go right to the source, the computer.

    plus we could smash the thing to smithereens at the end of the year of things didn’t work out.
    as much as we feel like doing that with sabermetricians it would be wrong to do that :)

  72. MTU April 17th, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    My point was that if Phil is feeling something like that there is no way
    he would be able to throw a baseball normally.

    Once they clear the condition, assuming one exists, rapid progress can be made.

    In short, I was trying to be my usual optimistic self.

    :)

  73. GreenBeret7 April 17th, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    The only thing wrong with Rodriguez is that he has a tightness in the back, or as he called it, a not. Two days off before having to go play on that concrete slab in Toronto is pretty smart. So much for “doesn’t sound good for Alex”.

  74. randy l. April 17th, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    “ibuprofen is an NSAID and I take that stuff by the bottle, I never have any of the side effects that WCYF listed, I know I am young but the only thing it ever does for me is make me feel better.”

    ummm, isn’t there a problem with drinking alcohol and taking ibuprofen and kidney or liver problems later in life.

    maybe if you don’t drink at all.

    but i would do some research before taking any pharmaceutical “by the bottle”.

    Actually, there may be some side-effects from taking anything like that too often. Joe could probably tell you far better than me, but my wife always warns me not to too many of any one item (something about liver function stuff–is that too medical?)

  76. Betsy April 17th, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    Whatever, Craw

    Jack, I was thisclose to getting a previously owned vehicle, but the guy never told us the car had been in an accident – we found out via carfax. Our mechanic advise us to stay far, far away (it was a minor fender bender). So, we’re going to give it a few more weeks to see if we can find anything else. If not, it will have to be a new car.

    Bojo, I will keep on keeping on!

    I don’t get why the Yankees gave Phil an anti-inflammatory if he’s ok and not feeling any pain – that makes no sense

    Well, you told me, GB, lol. I don’t know what a “not” is – is that a medical term or did you mean “knot”? You’re no damn expert and you know just as much as I do as to how well Alex is doing, so if you can get your rickety bones off your soap box, do it.

  80. MTU April 17th, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    GB-

    Does Alex really have a “not”, and not a “knot” ?

    Because if he has a not instead of a knot he may just may not want to play even if he feels better.

    It better be a knot.

    Why don’t you go preach about the idiots that refuse to have themselves or kids treated for illnesses or disease because they believe in snake charmers, quackery or “home cures” and the victim dies?

    max dose for ibuprofen is 3200 mg in a 24 hour period…you can take 800 mg at one time but the therapeutic dose is 600 mg (which means there is little if any benefit to taking more than that). Now obviously you wouldn’t want to do this routinely but for short periods it’s fine for healthy folks with aches and pain.

    That’s right–you have a medical background too IIRC…so you would be a good soiurce to check with.

    The key question I would think is how many days in a row is she taking these, and how many times a year is she taking them for long periods of time…and of course, why is she in such pain?

    I’m not surprised to see Gardner in the 9 hole but I’m not sure I agree with the move this early…….if it takes some pressure off and gets him going then they can always move him back. I do think he’s going to have to adjust to the way he’s being pitched now but I also see no reason why he can’t.

    blake,

    Crawford K’d on a pretty nice changeup, I think he K’d his next AB as well, then he tried a running bunt but it was right to the pitcher… then a weak grounder to 1st.

    He just isn’t seeing the ball well at all. Pitchers also seem to have figured him out a bit. He’s not getting pitches to hit because they know which pitches he’ll chase.

    “Bryan Hoch:

    A-Rod doesn’t think he’ll need the DL. Thought he got himself out at the perfect time yesterday; a violent swing could’ve cost him 2 weeks.”

    Thankfully we have a superstar who has a genius baseball IQ and knows his own body. Instead of 2 weeks, could only be a game or 2 he misses.

    I was at the game yesterday and it was incredibly windy and really cold. I told my girlfriend I thought a player would get hurt in the game due to the conditions, and I’m honestly surprised more didn’t.

Like you, we made the decision to not be aggressive, due to his age and the likely side effects of chemo. But, he has lasted about 8 months post diagnosis, which is a few mornths more than the vet thought. However, he has rectal prolapse (diaper time, lucky us) and losing weight. He’s been a good friend, will be tough when his time comes.

    Good luck to you.

    Thanks for that answer. So, if your friend Bobby posted here as Vineyard Yankee and also as BobbyCa, you’d agree he should be banned. As you are aware, others fall into that same category, and we can petition Chad to start the banning process, Yes.
    ================
    West Coast Yankee Fan April 14th, 2011 at 11:23 am
    Absolutely 100% YES. If Bobby posted here under under both names he should be banned. I hope that is clear. I will participate in any effort to encourage Chad/LoHud to identify people through IP addresses or whatever other means they have — and to ban those using multiple names.
