Ramiro Pena pulled in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on May 05, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Just got a text from Donnie Collins in Scranton.

Ramiro Pena has been pulled from tonight’s Triple-A game in the top of the second inning. Donnie said there’s no explanation for it, which suggests he’ll be the guy coming up for Eric Chavez.

Obviously there’s nothing official, but it seems to be a pretty good sign that Pena’s the guy.

    I already feel warm and fuzzy.

    Like a puppy will save us.

    El Nino :)

  3. DocTodd May 5th, 2011 at 7:07 pm

    Thank goodness, we definitely need a big bat as the team is experiencing a major hitting slump….

  4. Captain Clutch May 5th, 2011 at 7:08 pm

    I think the only way they will bring up Montero this year is if Posada gets hurt. Otherwise he doesn’t really fit. They need him to play everyday and with Martin and Posada healthy there is no room for him. Posada would also throw a fit so they don’t want to step on his toes.

    man, I knew I shouldn’t have dropped him in Fantasy Baseball. I hope he is still available ;)

  6. Tom in N.J. May 5th, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    It would never happen because the MLB has stepped in and is going to foot the Dodger’s bill. But imagine the lunacy that would occur if it did:

    “Los Angeles Dodgers players could file for free agency if the team can’t make payroll, Major League Baseball players union spokesman Greg Bouris said in an e-mail.”

    Just a gut feeling..BUT…Nunez reminds me a great deal of a couple of ball players–Bobby Murcer and BJ Upton. All three have great offensive skills at a young age, but none of them were/are consistent enough to play middle infield. My instinct tells me that Nunez might do better as an OFer, and become a valuable player in that role for some team. As he matures and gains weight and muscle, I would even expect him to reach 20-25 homers a year.

  8. blake May 5th, 2011 at 7:13 pm

    I really see no reason to carry both Nunez and Pena.

  9. BoJo May 5th, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    You carry Nunez and Pena so Nunez can relieve ARod and Pena can relieve DJ. Nunez doesn’t have the glove to play SS. Period.

  10. YankeesNmore May 5th, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    Wonderful! Just what the Yankees need… Another guy with a donut for a bat.

  11. blake May 5th, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    Nunez has very little experience at 3b….if he can’t play SS then he needs to be at SWB learning how

  12. BoJo May 5th, 2011 at 7:19 pm

    blake May 5th, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    __________
    That’s what I was saying all ST…I wanted Pena to break camp, COMMA because Nunez never impressed me with his glove or footwork.

  13. blake May 5th, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    Besides its rare that Jeter and Alex are going to have the day off at the same time…..they did that today because the tightest in Jeter’s hip last night. Pena can play all 3 positions and play them well…..I don’t see the point in carrying two bench players that play the same positions.

  14. Rich in NJ May 5th, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    How uninspired.

  15. blake May 5th, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    I would rather have another bat on the bench than a back up back up infielder.

  16. BoJo May 5th, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    I can buy that..send Nunez downa dn bring up Pena. To me, defense is ALWAYS first. You can’t be giving up runs at SS.

  17. Rich in NJ May 5th, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    “To me, defense is ALWAYS first. ”

    On the Yankees? Come on.

  18. blake May 5th, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    I agree that you can’t give away runs at SS…..the problem with Nunez is that at least some of his throwing issues are rust related…..now when is he going to play?

  19. BoJo May 5th, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    Rich in NJ May 5th, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    _______
    Huh?

    At SS, especially as late inning guy, defense is job #1. Cashman has put premium on getting good gloves and 2 way players, but at SS, I’d give up some offense for great D

    _______
    Rust or poor footwork/fundamentals? Not sure which it is, but I would prefer to see what he can do as an OFer. I still think he has offensive promise.

  21. Rich in NJ May 5th, 2011 at 7:28 pm

    This is no knock on Jeter, but they have given away runs at SS during his tenure. He has been average defensively, at best. Yet he has been a great SS because of his offense. Same with Posada. They couldn’t have won without them, and I would sign up for another 15 years of similar replacements who could provide what they did in their prime.

    Some other team could try to win with a defense-first C and SS.

  22. 108 stitches May 5th, 2011 at 7:28 pm

    Too bad Ramiro Pena can’t hit much.
    Then again, his teammates aren’t hitting much either.

  23. Bronx Chica May 5th, 2011 at 7:29 pm

    Nunez errors at SS are troubling. He also seemed to have trouble at 2B with his deliberate throwing. I think he needs to go back to AAA, play every day and get the kinks out, then come back. He does have offense but defense is too important. Errors costs runs & pitch counts

    So I think we should replace Nunez with Pena and bring in Vasquez for Chavez, unless his defense sucks too. :(

  24. Niki May 5th, 2011 at 7:31 pm

    Good…I’m glad it’s Pena.

  25. BoJo May 5th, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    Rich in NJ May 5th, 2011 at 7:28 pm
    _______
    IIRC, DJ could always turn the DP and plays he could get too….didn’t make too many errors on the plays he needed to make. If he got to it, it was a pretty sure out. Nunez can’t do that, and you can’t have a middle infielder blowing DPs and making bad throws–giving extra outs up so frequently.

  26. Rich in NJ May 5th, 2011 at 7:33 pm

    “Nunez errors at SS are troubling.”

    His track record is too good, the sample size is too small, and the errors are too correctable for the errors to be troubling.

  27. West Coast Yankee Fan May 5th, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    Terrific. Another lousy bat, just what we need.

  28. Rich in NJ May 5th, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    “IIRC, DJ could always turn the DP and plays he could get too….didn’t make too many errors on the plays he needed to make. If he got to it, it was a pretty sure out. Nunez can’t do that, and you can’t have a middle infielder blowing DPs and making bad throws–giving extra outs up so frequently.”

    Jeter has never been Vizquel or Smith. He has always had limited range. Yet he blow them away because of his offense.

    You don’t know what Nunez can do. The sample is far too small.

  29. blake May 5th, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    Bojo,

    Both.

    Rich,

    Not because of not making the routine plays though….and as I’ve said many times I think the stuff about his range is overstated.

  30. Rich in NJ May 5th, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    blake

    We need to see more of Nunez before we know what he is.

  31. blake May 5th, 2011 at 7:38 pm

    Rich,

    I agree….he needs to be playing every day.

  32. Zach S May 5th, 2011 at 7:56 pm

    Jorge get your 1st basemen mit out.

  33. longtimefan May 5th, 2011 at 8:24 pm

    Pena, another sound decision by the organization, wouldn’t want to give Vasquez a shot, he is only hitting around .300 with a bunch of extra base hits and home runs. We won’t need another bat when in Texas

The problem is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this during my hunt for something regarding this.

  40. Nolan Miravalle August 10th, 2014 at 3:17 am

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    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.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    Throughout the awesome design of things you’ll receive a B- with regard to effort and hard work. Where exactly you actually lost me personally was first in the details. As they say, the devil is in the details… And that could not be more accurate in this article. Having said that, permit me say to you exactly what did give good results. Your writing is certainly highly powerful which is most likely the reason why I am taking an effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, while I can easily see the leaps in reason you come up with, I am not really confident of just how you appear to connect your details which help to make the actual final result. For now I will subscribe to your position however wish in the near future you actually link your dots better.
