Granderson and Nova carry Yankees in Texas

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on May 06, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Curtis Granderson hit two home runs and Ivan Nova got 16 ground ball outs, a combination of power and efficiency that sent the Yankees to a 4-1 win and snapped a three-game losing streak. Granderson became the first American League player to hit 10 home runs this season. He didn’t hit 10 homers last year until July 26. Nova struck out only one batter, but got plenty of routine outs. The only Rangers run was unearned and came after Nova left the game.

    Ivan Nova = stopper

  2. jacksquat May 6th, 2011 at 10:55 pm

    That #9 hitter they moved to #2 for this game doesn’t look too bad…

  3. P May 6th, 2011 at 10:57 pm

    We didn’t play well this game at all.. Nova was great and Curtis was great.. (and Mo) that’s it!

    Very true chat.. Curtis and Nova did carry us.. it happens like that sometimes !! Good W !!

    Surprised to see CG betting ninth.

    He doesnt get on base against lefties, only hits for power. Its the logical place for him.
    _______
    Texas stadium seems like a place where he could some damage though. Warmer air–ball should carry.

    I just have a feeling that Grandy will hit this guy…don’t know why…gut sense

  5. Jerkface May 6th, 2011 at 10:59 pm

    Sure enough all he does is hit for power :twisted:

    I wonder if Granderson reaches 40

  8. cs in la May 6th, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    Yes, still a little sloppy tonight. Defense and base running still very loose. But we win and maybe that’s the end of this mini-slump. GO BARTOLO!

    The ups and downs of young pitchers.

    People wanted Nova sent to AAA a couple weeks ago.

    Now that we see what a little patience did for the kid hopefully those people can handle when Nova inevitably hits a little rough patch again.

  11. BoJo May 6th, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    Good night night people.

  12. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 6th, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    Mariano is a sick sick man.

    I love this kind of Yankee team. Don’t need a superstar at every position, and their rotation is very very good. 1-5 not made up of overpaid superstars. But they are rock solid.

    I couldn’t be more proud of the rotation Cashman put together. I’ve been totally psyched about Garcia and Colon since we got them. I had – and still have – every faith in the world that the Yankee rotation would get them right to the World Series, and I still feel that way.

    And oh yeah. Then there’s 2-3 Clifford Lee.

    :D

  13. tyanksfan36 May 6th, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    games like tonight is why I stuck with Nova on my fantasy team. I knew he has the ability to be this good.

  14. Captain Clutch May 6th, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    I hope Girardi doesn’t sit Granderson tomorrow for Jones. He has been hitting lefties so just let him play

  15. Bo knows May 6th, 2011 at 11:03 pm

    Before this game he was 20 for his last 31. They moved Gardner back in the box to address the very issues you are talking about.

    ————————————————-

    Yeah, I saw that. He is starting to swing on occasion. But I’ve seen one dribbler to SS this year, that’s it. Last year he was hitting oppo with authority on occasion. Then he’ll come out of his crouch on his swing and it’s like “What the Hell was that”?

    Tough to be a Gardner fan, we’ll call a bad game and move on.

  16. blake May 6th, 2011 at 11:04 pm

    really can’t say enough about what Nova did tonight…..3 game losing streak, on the road in a hitters park against a good lineup and he goes in and dominates. Impressive.

  17. Rich in NJ May 6th, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    “People wanted Nova sent to AAA a couple weeks ago.”

    A lack of patience for talented prospects is like failing one of life’s IQ tests.

    He is only slightly off last years opposite field pace.

    – Tough to be a Gardner fan, we’ll call a bad game and move on.

    Not really.. I’ve been a BG fan for years now.. been following him before he came up..

    It’s tough to be a Girardi fan.

  20. Jerkface May 6th, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    He has gone the other way 13 times this year, pulled 16 times, up the middle 31 times.

  21. blake May 6th, 2011 at 11:07 pm

    Braves beat Cliff Lee tonight….he falls to 2-3 with a high 3′s era. He did strike out 16 though.

  22. yankeefeminista May 6th, 2011 at 11:07 pm

    Great analysis by Coney tonight.

  23. Rich in NJ May 6th, 2011 at 11:08 pm

    I think it’s easy to root for overachievers, who play the game hard and keep improving their game.

  24. Bo knows May 6th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    I love Martin’s work with the kid.

    Saw him getting a little wild, went out to the mound, settled him down. Another time pointed, I think he meant take a little walk, collect yourself. It worked both times. One questionable walk, that’s it.

    Oh and the score, Granderson 3 – Rangers 0.

  25. DerekJetah May 6th, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    Hey -
    Is David Cone ill? He looks really thin and tired, losing weight? Anyone know?

    Voice sounds strong, perhaps he’s just tired…

    “It’s tough to be a Girardi fan.”

    Yeah, especially with the Yankees in first place in the AL East and Girardi dealing with Hughes out of the rotation and what was the uncertainty of how Garcia and Colon would perform (not that I doubted either of them.) Could he suck more?

    tried to get this scout sitting in front of me to tell me how JRam pitched tonight but he was either ignoring me or deaf in his left ear lol. I wanted to ask Brett but he got up and left before I could. It wouldnt have mattered if he pitched a CGSO because the TY only had 2 hits. Some guy asked the scout if the pitcher for Lakeland was really that good, he said he pitched a good game but the Tyanks can hit, plain and simple. his words.

  32. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 6th, 2011 at 11:18 pm

    I have Masterson on my fantasy team. I refuse to put any Sux players on my team but since he’s with the Tribe, it’s all good. Funny how he’s achieving there but couldn’t get the job done in fenway. Good coaching can go a long way.

    lol about the scout. Thanks for the effort; I appreciate it. Sounds like TYanks are really struggling. Who was Lakeland’s pitcher?

    Suttle had a two run homer in Trenton’s win and 2 of their 4 hits; Trenton had I believe 6 SB’s, 3 by Krum.

    The Tampa Yankees are awful right now. Just plain awful. They couldn’t hit the ground if they tripped. I’ve been to the past 5 games and get more depressed every game. I am glad my tickets are less than a dollar a game or I wouldn’t be able to drag myself to their games. I went to Lakeland tonight and they only had 2 hits! Two! Its why I have to laugh when people are so down on the NYY, they are at least capable of winning every now and then. The TYanks have lost 9 in a row.

  38. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 6th, 2011 at 11:31 pm

    Tyanks, as you know that could change at any time. And tonight anyway, I had an advantage in that I had 4 pitchers going to your 2. You’re still hanging right in there!

    That should say *cant hit. Obviously. I think the guy has an ERA in the 8s. At least he did before this game. It doesn’t matter if I were to pitch, they can’t hit anyone. Bretts mom said they are just saving their hits for his start tomorrow. I told her that he is going to have to dream on because he isn’t getting a W, he will do best just lowering his ERA.

    I think I’m toast this week. I think I got screwed because all my pitchers just went once this week and last week, my only win, they went twice. Of course my biggest point contributor in the past 2 weeks has been Nova.

    Trenton had a similar problem last year later in the season. But hang in there. TYanks can’t get any worse, and Heathcott, Flores, and Murphy among others may be on the horizon soon. Those kids can rake.

    As for Marshall, his pitching well is the most important thing. I hope he has a good game tomorrow and throws all his pitches.

    I didn’t see Brackman’s game yesterday but his stats were pretty awful. I am going to watch the archived game tonight.

    It takes a special person to support a team that’s so down. Things get so bad that they turn humorous.

    Hope you’ll get to see some better games when the Charleston boys start coming in. There should be an airlift by mid season if not sooner.

    Suttle is a feel good story, all those injuries then labrum surgery and he’s doing good in Trenton.

  49. Carlo May 6th, 2011 at 11:44 pm

    Big win tonight IMO. Take one of the weekend games and go home 3-4 on a roadtrip that looked like it was going to be a disaster as of yday. Time for the bats to come alive and carry us for a week or so.

  50. yankeefeminista May 6th, 2011 at 11:48 pm

    Btw, Teheran is making his mlb debut (a spot start) for the Braves against the Phillies tomorrow.

  51. tyanksfan36 May 6th, 2011 at 11:54 pm

    Bo Knows

    Suttle was and still is my favorite. I am always keeping track of him, I really miss the 2010 team but that’s what I have to deal with when following the minor leagues. His number is 36 which is why I picked that for my screen name on here.

    I hope we get some good offense and defense soon from Charleston. I would assume when the SI season starts they will move some up.

    I don’t take the games too seriously, even when they are losing I always think good thoughts for the next day. Its definitely not fun but its better than watching the Rays.

  52. GreenBeret7 May 6th, 2011 at 11:55 pm

    The Yankees need to just go ahead and cut the strings with Jose Pirela. A .160 BA and 10 errors (2 tonight). I swear that you can hear the pitchers scream “NOOOOOOOO!!!” every time the ball is hit to him. It’s not just glove or throw….it’s both. 1 out and Hall has a 4-2 lead and a fielding error on one play and the next pitch is a sure-fire DP and he throws the 10 foot throw into right field, runners end up on 2nd and 3rd. They score and Hall gets a no decision. 6.1 innings, 6 hits 4 runs, 2 earned, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts. 04 with 2 strikeouts.

  53. Ninja Burglar May 6th, 2011 at 11:56 pm

    I’m hoping Girardi is considering keeping Grandy in the #2 spot going forward, even vs lefties. I think at this point he’s proven he can handle them.

  54. michaels07 May 6th, 2011 at 11:57 pm

    Jeter can still field his position but watching the futility of his AB`S is hard to take only two extra base hits so far. I wonder if he will reach double digits.

  55. GreenBeret7 May 6th, 2011 at 11:57 pm

    ***0-4 with 2 strikeouts for Pirela***.

  56. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 6th, 2011 at 11:59 pm

    TYanks, pitching is definitely the key in our league. I picked up Bedard this week specifically because he was pitching twice. Of course that can cut the other way if you have two-start pitchers who are in a funk. But the more two-starts I get the more comfortable I feel. It definitely can make a difference.

  57. tyanksfan36 May 7th, 2011 at 12:02 am

    Yankeefem

    Of all the games I went to this week, Brett pitched the best game on Monday. He had his share of baserunners but also had 9 strikeouts that came when he really needed them(bases loaded 1 out for instance) his only 2ER came in the 6th and one was an inherited runner that scored after he left the game. I hope he does well tomorrow. I have to update his mom since she won’t be able to watch/listen online and its no fun to tell her when he isn’t doing well. He has pitched better than his ERA though. He got killed in one game and that just blew it up and he is quite slowly getting it back to a respectable number. I haven’t been able to watch my milb because I’ve been busy, I wish they put the Trenton games on there.

  58. Bo knows May 7th, 2011 at 12:06 am

    It’s great that there is input on these boards about the minors. You ladies and GB do good stuff, get people interested about the kids. I was kind of subbing for GB tonight.

    The best news for the pitchers coming up to the Yankees is Mr Martin. Nova as the unsung kid coming in should break trail for the kids coming after him.

    Personally I’d sooner go to a minor league game than the Majors. The atmosphere is great, the people will talk to you and the players appreciate the support. A lot of very knowledgeable fans that are fun to talk baseball with.

  59. tyanksfan36 May 7th, 2011 at 12:08 am

    GB

    Lyerly actually made the play on the 2 balls that went his way tonight that I saw. And they weren’t easy either. I also saw Heredia and Marshall look at eachother after both of them, probably saying “why can’t he do that when we are up there” lol The TY didn’t have any errors tonight but they lost 9-0 with just 2 hits. If I lived in Lakeland I’d be a happy camper. Those 9 runs meant that the people with a ticket can get a pizza for a dollar at Little Caesars. A scout from the Padres I was sitting behind said the TY can’t hit plain and simple. The TY pitchers got totally squeezed tonight. Sojo got ejected and Ware almost got himself ejected.

  60. tyanksfan36 May 7th, 2011 at 12:19 am

    Last night really taught me how important pitching is in our league. I had only one going and my offense only got me 1 point. Ill know better next year.

  61. GreenBeret7 May 7th, 2011 at 12:25 am

    TY, that’s what kills you about Lyerly. He could be good because he makes some great plays, but, boots all of the easy ones. It’s like if he has time to think about it, he’s got a problem. When it’s just a grab it and unload it in a hurry, he’s really good.

    Charleston has the same issues with their 3rd baseman. Great bat, bad defense…same issues.

  62. tyanksfan36 May 7th, 2011 at 12:26 am

    CoJo drives in Gil with the go-ahead run. Trenton up 5-4. I swear, its like the 2010 Tampa Yankees all over again. They lived for the late innings. Its when they did the most damage and it seems they have carried that up to Trenton.

  63. GreenBeret7 May 7th, 2011 at 12:27 am

    TY, it’s Rob Segedin.

    MTU told me you had a rough day, hope all is good. Miss talking with the good people here, it’s better in the AM, but not much these days.

  66. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 7th, 2011 at 12:31 am

    tyanks, another thing you can do is pick up some pitching and get rid of some of your position players. That way you can use all of your two-start pitchers and bench the others each week. You can always take a look at the chart that tells which pitchers are going to have two starts in a given week and make sure you play them if you have any, and also pick up some that are having two starts if they look promising and you have pitching you are willing to part with.

    I have one position player on my bench and two pitchers.

    Just something to think about.

    (Some very good pitchers will be coming off the DL. Keep your eye on that also…)

  67. yankeefeminista May 7th, 2011 at 12:32 am

    tyanksfan36 May 6th, 2011 at 11:54 pm

    You just read my mind; I was going to ask you about the # after your handle. I hadn’t really noticed what number Suttle wears.

    Ah, I see the Trenton game isn’t over after all and now tied 4-4. Pirela hasn’t been very consistent when I have seen him play, GB. He doesn’t have much range and is a better 2B than a SS. He hasn’t been hitting either. So much for his m.o. as an offensive SS. Although he did have a huge 3 RBI triple vs. Portland in Thursday’s game and flew around the bases.

    Trenton now up 5-4, and yes, they are starting to get a reputation for coming from behind. The comeback vs. Portland was very impressive. They are never out of a game, especially with the great pitching they have. They don’t even have Stoneburner who is on the DL. He may make a rehab start with Tampa at some point, tyanks.

  68. tyanksfan36 May 7th, 2011 at 12:33 am

    GB

    Lately it has been his fielding of the ball, not his throwing. I think Murton’s problem is that he likes to dramatically scoop the ball instead of just catch it, he scoops and throws the ball out of his glove. Right now the defense is the least of my problems. Their lack of hitting is just horrid. Taylor Grote didnt strikeout though and walked twice(yay for thinking positively) though that was probably all on the bad umpiring behind the plate. The guy was extremely inconsistent. The 8 walks issued by Tampa was just ridiculous, even Lakeland fans were saying that most of them should have been strikes.

  69. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 7th, 2011 at 12:33 am

    Big Al, hopefully things will get straightened out here some day and we can all come back and enjoy ourselves once again.

    well the TY have home games all next week so maybe he will start one of them. All our starting pitchers are off the DL but some are ineffective so who knows.

    Yeah, the Tampa Yankees won most of their games last year in the late innings, it didnt even matter how many runs they were down they always found a way to claw their way back, and their pitching always kept them in it and gave them that chance.

    I think Suttle is still wearing 36 this year for Trenton. Michael Solbach currently wears 36 for the Tyanks and I like him so I didnt want to change it. I also havent found a new favorite yet. I am sure that will change when we get some of the Charleston guys.

  75. GreenBeret7 May 7th, 2011 at 12:41 am

    YankeeFem, Pirela’s numbers have gone down every year. He’s just not worth the effort. He kills every team he’s on with his defense. So far in his career, 78 errors in 265 games. I would never except the old “but he gets to so many more” that you hear on this board. You make that many errors, you ain’t saving anything.

  76. BIG AL May 7th, 2011 at 12:44 am

    I thought his D was good enough as a back-up 3B, but the Yankees must have other plans in mind.

    AL, the house hasn’t burned down yet, so, I have some good luck.

    As for the pix, AL, I appreciate it, but, no….nothing I care to see. I’ve seen enough head shots to last me. I’m satisfied that they got him, regardless of how or the circumstances. Just seems to be a waste of lead, though. I would have just as soon that htey would have hung him by his heels and have somebody field dress him like a deer…while still alive.

    well then Segedin can stay in Charleston, we dont need another bad 3B down here. I always heard that Suttle was not that good at 3rd but now I am thinking those people are comparing him to a gold glover, I might be biased because he was my favorite but I dont remember him being as bad as Lyerly. I am not totally down on Lyerly though. He does have the capability to hit. unfortunately no one on the team is hitting right now.

    “Knock knock.”

    “Who’s there?”

    “Navy Seals.”

    “Oh sh*t!”

    AL, not really. Laird’s defense has been pretty good, but, his bat hasn’t come around yet. Pena has the advantage of playing 3 infield positions and the corner outfield, some speed and experience.

    My bad, I should have realized you’ve seen enough to far outlast a lifetime.

    It was my son’s old unit, Seal Team #6 that went in, he’s very happy for his guys.

    Glad the house is coming along OK.

    I thought Laird was coming along better after ST, but I guess its best he gets every dayplaying time to keep developing, rather than sit in NY.

    When I was a season ticket holder with SWB, I knew all the players, today not so much, which is why I really appreciate all your input on the players and games.

    Hi GB,

    Hope things are coming along for you.

    QFT, Pirela is definitely not committing errors because of plus range.

    AL, if you mean, it’s a good thing the house hasn’t burned, yeah, it’s coming along. My two brothers are coming here in June to help finish off. Not sure that it wouldn’t be cheaper to pay to have it done or buy their beer. We’ll have a good time, though, and they finally talked my ma into leaving her doctors for a couple of weeks and coming down. She has my music and movies to keep her occupied during the day and she can just relax and give orders. I told her that we wouldn’t listen to her when we were growing up, so whay does she think that we’ve changed now. She loves the stories about what we did when she wasn’t around. She just doesn’t know all of them.

    I’m going to call it a night. All you good LoHud people have a great evening – early morning. :)

    Don’t ever underestimate what mothers know, they seem to find out things we thought they never heard about. Glad to hear your Mom is still with you, you are blessed. Wish her a very happy Mother’s Day from your friend in NC. Good night.

    Hey, SAS. Doing fine here. Just waiting for family to show up in June. Still trying to decide whether to tell her that those pretty green plants that we grew in her flower garden wasn’t grown for “Better Homes And Gardens”.

    Always thought her and Pop were really dumb when we were growing up. Always amazed me just how much smarter they got after we grew up.

    Hope all is going well for you, SAS. Keep up the thoughts and I will too. Best wishes for you and family and have a great Happy Lohudder’s Day on Sunday.

    Good night, all. Be well!

  90. SAS May 7th, 2011 at 1:16 am

    Thanks GB. My husband will be home on Tuesday to continue rehab as an out patient. We are going to try to leave for the East in a couple of weeks after that, and he will continue in NY.

  91. GreenBeret7 May 7th, 2011 at 1:42 am

    SAS, that’s wonderful news to hear. Just let us all know when you leave and when you arrive home safely. Be safe on your drive.
