Cano’s back, Swisher’s out

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on May 03, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

My guess is it’s just a day for Nick Swisher to rest. Just saw him and he certainly didn’t seem hurt in any way.

    Welcome back Mr. Cano.

    YESNetwork @YESKimJones shares nine anecdotes from Monday’s #Yankees win in Detroit http://bit.ly/lDVc0Z

    Love the Cano/Nova stuff. :)

    Every day I wonder if Girardi is going to have the guts to bat Jeter 9th. Unfortunately I don’t think its gonna happen anytime soon.

    I love Jeter and am grateful for everything he’s done over the years but its painfully obvious that he’s a shell of his former self. If not for the amazing number of fluke infield singles he’s gotten his average would be around .200. When was the last time Jeter drove the ball in the gap? Forget about hitting any home runs.

    He always says its all about winning. If that’s the case he should go to Girardi and tell him to bat him 9th. Because frankly, if he’s not leading off, that’s the only other spot in the lineup that makes any sense.

    Erin-

    Love the Cano stuff.

    See. I fixed that for ya’.

    Ledger_Yankees Swisher has played every game for Yanks. Every inning too, I believe. So a breather makes sense.

  6. ADam May 3rd, 2011 at 3:54 pm

    I agree… I can understand letting him get to 150 – 200 bats in the top 2 to get a better sample size but i don’t think Girardi will do that at all this year. The Media is completely on Jeter’s side on everything and would crucify girardi for making such a bold move… We’ll see

  7. Patrick May 3rd, 2011 at 3:57 pm

    Swisher has played every inning of every game this season, not surprising he’s getting a day off.

  8. timmyb72 May 3rd, 2011 at 4:01 pm

    Well the Tigers have a lead off man hitting around .150 so not every team has a Ricky Henderson. And the Yanks are developing one in Slade Heathcott, but he strikes out too much right now in his young career. Is he the next Yankee leadoff man? Where are the good leadoff men? Brian Roberts of the Orioles is my current favorite. Knoblauch in his prime was probably the best in the last 20 years for the Yanks. And going way back Mickey “the Quick” Rivers was a dandy!

  9. J. Alfred Prufrock May 3rd, 2011 at 4:02 pm

    Both Banuelos & Betances have quality changeups.

    Tom in NJ, I think you’re correct that Betances’ CB overshadows his change. The latter he has come by during rehab so it’s a relatively new offering for him. What’s got people like Nardi excited is how deadly it is & how quickly it’s become a real weapon, not just a show-me pitch to offset his fb & curve.

    Manny has thrown his a lot longer & throws it a lot more,i t looks just like his fb to the hitter so he always seems to be a step ahead. What’s exciting is both kids have a nasty one.

    During Betances last outing in Trenton, Contreras was beaming & kept talking about his change with the two kid pitchers charting pitches. Since I’ve seen it a good deal I can understand Contreras’ excitement. Contreras is a very excitable, charismatic guy, btw. I was tempted to ask him about the Joba mess but I decided I’m getting a little long in the tooth for that kind of fan-aprooaches-player/coach/scout/manager stuff ;).

  11. timmyb72 May 3rd, 2011 at 4:05 pm

    And of course how could I forget Rickey Henderson when he was with the Yanks? He would have to be the best Lead off man in Yankees history over Knoblauch and Rivers. Players like Henderson though only come around once a lifetime imo.

  13. J. Alfred Prufrock May 3rd, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    I got no problem with Slade’s Ks. He’s got enough developing power & contact ability to make me shrug at the strikeouts for now. I only saw him for 3 games, but he looks like a hitter with a clue.

  14. timmyb72 May 3rd, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    Will Heathcott be a bonafide ML leadoff man? He’s got the hittability and the speed to put up 40-50 SB’s a season. He’s on pace at Charleston score over 200 runs this season. But he has over 20 K’s in less than 100 AB’s.

  15. ron May 3rd, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    9. In closing out the win, Mariano Rivera got Ryan Raburn to ground out to second. As Raburn’s bat splintered into about six pieces, some shot into the air like fireworks.

    Going by last year’s stats Gardy’s a bonafide lead off man but when put up there this year he’s choked. He definitely could be though I agree.

    ///
    but it’s not like he’s got a problematic swing or upper cut or poor plate coverage. He’s an aggressive hitter. He’s too young to get hung up on isolated K rates. The guys I worry about in that regard are Mesa & DeLeon. Got to see Slade unload that gun he has for an arm in Lakewood. He made one bad decision & got caught in a rundown between 3B & home. I have no idea why he thought he could score on the play so that was funky. But sweet player. wish I had the chance to see him more.

    I don’t think he choked. He hit 1st fine last year (one of his strongest splits). I think it was a few things, changing his positioning in the box, new swing, wrist surgery, etc.

  22. Wave Your Hat May 3rd, 2011 at 4:24 pm

    “One of them is hitting 9th for the Yankees”

    I’d like to be sure he’s serious about at least a .375 OBP.

  23. 108 stitches May 3rd, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    Per Cotts : 3 years/$51M (2011-13), plus 2014 player option

    No problem with the money of Jeter’s contract but the length could be. At some point he’ll have to accept a reduced role both in the batting order and playing time itself unless he suddenly becomes a Paul Molitor.
    The best hope is that he makes the decision on his own.

    Im waiting for the first PAST HIS PRIME baseball player to hand em up before his contract is up for pride reasons.

    Jeter has a 4 year contract. What if he huvers around .250 this year with no obvious power and has no improvements next year? Can you see him hanging em up being the competitor that he is?

    How about Alex? Tex? Again assuming they are not pulling their weight at the end of their contract.

  44. GreenBeret7 May 3rd, 2011 at 4:44 pm

  45. Wave Your Hat May 3rd, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    “Why is 86 plate appearances this year more significant than the 569 he had last year?”

    Well there’s the 425 he had in 2008 and 2009, and those 89 he had this year. You must admit he didn’t look to good in those first 89.

    However, he’s done better recently. I’d like to see him keep that up before moving him back to the top, and I wouldn’t get too excited about it anyway because if they did they’ll just drop Jeter to #2 and you’ll still be frustrated.

    It implies some other factor other than the Yankees believe in his body of work.

    Magglio Ordonez still bats 3rd for the Tigers.

    ==========

    I think Jeter and Gardner should switch jersey numbers. Gardner of the past had the ultimate infield track power. Now Jeter holds that belt.
    Maybe Long mixed the files up of things to work on Jeter and Gardner on in 11.

  51. lounge lizard May 3rd, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    As a practical matter, Girardi will not want to go with lefty-lefty Gardner/Granderson at the top of the lineup, inviting a lefty reliever. Since Granderson is doing well in the two spot, the lineup issue is more complicated than focusing on Jeter vis-a-vis Gardner. Going back to Gardner-Jeter one-two would not be a plus, for sure.

    If both Gardner and Swisher were to play very well, and Swisher were to even out his splits, and Jeter were to play very poorly, perhaps an argument could be made for slotting them one-two and Granderson sixth, but I have a hard time seeing all that happening.

    Jeter has actually done well leading off games and innings with no one on base. The grounders with men on base scenario will happen whether he bats one or nine.

    That’s one.

    I’m guessing he negotiated some sort of buyout with KC, but maybe not.

    The money is a non-issue for the Yankees. They can write Jeter a “Thank You for everything” check for the remainder of his contract anytime they choose. Hopefully it’s no later than the end of the this year.

    More importantly, Jeter needs to lose his spot in the order, if not his job all together, about five seconds after he FINALLY limps past 3,000 hits with what will no doubt be another of those patented infield rollers of his.

  53. BoJo May 3rd, 2011 at 4:50 pm

    I think 2010 is the most significant year of his career to date because he was in the majors for the entire time and had a starting job from the get go.

    It’s just frustrating because early in his career people wrote Gardner off as a AAAA player then last year he broke out. And of course there were people saying that it was a fluke and we should wait for a full season before deciding he’s any good. Well we have that now, he’s a good player.

    How much does Gardner have to prove before people accept that YES he’s a good player and maybe he’s just going through a bad streak? 1 good season clearly wasn’t enough, so what do we need, 2 full seasons of good production? 3?

    It was a flair in front of the outfielders to right-center.

    It was anything BUT a hard-hit ball.

    Larry, you need to watch more games, it’s painful to hear your opinions.

  80. Irreverent Discourse May 3rd, 2011 at 5:22 pm

    and not “just watch” i want you to write down where every ball that jeter hits is caught when it doesn’t translate into a hit.

    Come back in like… a month… and report.

    Now, go…

    Man, just heard who Detroit is starting tonight.

    Brad Penny??? Is the Yankees don’t kill that dude, something’s wrong. CC vs. Penny is about as big a mismatch in the Yankees’ favor as any game I can remember off the top of my head.

    Pardon me if I don’t take your word for it.

    Larry, you need to watch more games
    ———————————————————
    I watch EVERY game. The only Yankees games I don’t see are any Saturday games that are blacked out because of the Fox thing and are not the Fox game of the week.

    Other than that, I see every pitch of every Yankees game, and it’s been that way, almost without exception, since the invention of the MLB Extra Innings package.

    What specifically is it that you believe I’m somehow missing?

    Francesa talking to Sweeny Murti right now about Jeter…

    Says he cannot imagine there is another everyday player in the game today with 100 AB’s who only has 2 extra-base hits.

  85. YankeesNmore May 3rd, 2011 at 5:33 pm

    Jeter has 25 hits this year. 11 of them are infield hits.

    As Murti just said, Jeter, as bad as he’s been, is 5 good throws from an infielder away from being a .200 hitter.
