Holland vs. Yankees

TIME/TV: 8:05 p.m., YES Network and MLB Network

WEATHER: Another warm night here in Texas. Ivan Nova said before the game that he loved pitching last night. Felt much more like being home for him.

UMPIRES: HP Jim Reynolds, 1B Mike DiMuro, 2B Andy Fletcher, 3B Tim Welke

RANGERS MAKE A MOVE: With Nelson Cruz going on the disabled list, the Rangers have called up Triple-A outfielder Craig Gentry. He stole 49 bases back in 2009 and has a little bit of big league time the past two seasons. Only hitting .239 in Triple-A this year.

MO AND NO(VA): According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Ivan Nova’s win last night made him the second Yankees rookie in the past 25 years to get a win while holding an opponent to just two hits and no earned runs through 7-plus innings on the road. The last rookie starter to do it… Mariano Rivera on July 4, 1995 in Chicago.

BACK AT SHORTSTOP: Last night was Derek Jeter’s 2,323rd game, tying Charlie Gehringer for the 20th most games among players who played their entire careers with one team. It was his 2,302nd game at shortstop, tying Cal Ripken for the most games as the shortstop of one team (that’s from Elias). The only players who have played more games at shortstop in their career are Omar Vizquel (2,692), Luis Aparicio (2,583) and Ozzie Smith (2,511).

UPDATE, 8:17 p.m.: That’s Michael Young’s second home run of the season, enough for a 1-0 Rangers lead in the first inning.

UPDATE, 8:28 p.m.: Second inning, second home run for the Rangers. David Murphy just hit his third of the season, a leadoff shot for a 2-0 Texas lead.

UPDATE, 8:34 p.m.: Well this is something new, Colon looks pretty rocky so far. He’s given up three runs in the second inning with only one out.

UPDATE, 8:42 p.m.: Good relay throw from Cano and a bad bit of base running by Aybar helps Colon get out of the second inning, but it’s already 5-0 Rangers. Not a great start from a guy who the Yankees had already come to trust.

UPDATE, 8:56 p.m.: Little two-out rally has put the Yankees on the board, and Derek Jeter’s the only guy who hit a ball hard in the process. Jeter’s double off the wall, Granderson’s walk and Teixeira’s bloop RBI single have made the score 5-1 in the third. It was Jeter’s third double of the season.

UPDATE, 9:01 p.m.: When Alex Rodriguez walked and Robinson Cano came to the plate, I turned to Pete Caldera and said, “Is this the guy you want to face with the bases loaded?” The answer was, no. Cano tripled to the wall, emptying the bases and pulling the Yankees within 5-4. If Colon can find himself during this extended break, the Yankees are very much back in this one.

UPDATE, 9:07 p.m.: Ugly swing and miss from Andruw Jones brings an end to the third inning, only after a four-run, two-out rally that left Holland yelling at himself as he walked off the field. He threw 45 pitches that inning.

UPDATE, 9:56 p.m.: Nice catch by Swisher helped the Yankees get out of the fifth, now he’s gone deep to tie the game in the sixth. That’s his second home run of the season, and it’s a pretty big one.

UPDATE, 10:04 p.m.: Brett Gardner has come in to play left field. Could be a regular upgrade. Could be that something’s wrong with Jones. Not sure at the moment.

UPDATE, 10:09 p.m.: Logan got the Yankees out of the fifth, but he couldn’t retire the first two lefties he faced in the sixth, and a suicide squeeze has given the Rangers a 6-5 lead.

    Win tonight and win the series

  3. Bronx Jeers May 7th, 2011 at 8:05 pm

    I want nothing more than to get some pizza & beer and watch this game with a buddy but I’m being forced at gunpoint to go to an in-law family thing.

    Marriage….think it over single men.

  4. Salliedogs7 May 7th, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    Go Colon. Go Yanks.

  5. Triple Short of a Cycle May 7th, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    over under on the first Nolan Ryan shot. 8:30

  6. Nick in SF May 7th, 2011 at 8:08 pm

    One of our bottom-feeding division foes, the Red Sox has won today. The other two losing clubs, the Orioals and the Blue Jays, have done what they more often do: lose.

    Those pesky Rays won again.

    That’s your AL East update. Go Yankees.

    why do they boo tex? they traded him

  9. Triple Short of a Cycle May 7th, 2011 at 8:11 pm

    gotta love a crowd that cheers when their pitcher throws at some guys head. stay classy

    Teix is going to hurt somebody….

  11. Jerkface May 7th, 2011 at 8:12 pm

    why do they boo tex? they traded him

    because he wouldnt sign an extension with them which is why they traded him I guess?

  12. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 8:12 pm

    Good thing Tex got a hit after that pitch. Considering how good Holland’s control is that pitch wasn’t cool and wasn’t necessary.

  14. JobaTipsHisCap May 7th, 2011 at 8:13 pm

    Oh my, a rod is ice cold

  15. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 8:13 pm

    It seems like the Rangers “fans” care more about the Yanks than their own team

  16. JobaTipsHisCap May 7th, 2011 at 8:14 pm

    Colon!

  17. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 8:15 pm

    The right handed hitters should start looking inside with 2 strikes

  18. jackamir May 7th, 2011 at 8:15 pm

    What happened to David Cone? He has aged 15 yrs. in the last 2 yrs. I love the guy and he adds a lot to the Broadcast with ” Mr Redundant.”

  19. Tom in N.J. May 7th, 2011 at 8:16 pm

    Did Cone just drop a reference to pitch FX data?

  20. syd_cash May 7th, 2011 at 8:16 pm

    nice play Cano

  21. Jerkface May 7th, 2011 at 8:17 pm

    Did Cone just drop a reference to pitch FX data?

    David Cone loves that stuff, he brought it up in 09 alot.

  22. Bo knows May 7th, 2011 at 8:17 pm

    If the ump is going to call that inside off the plate a strike then it’s going to be a long night.

  23. Jerkface May 7th, 2011 at 8:17 pm

    A perfect game pitching badass like David Cone giving some dap to fangraphs and pitchfx lends them some credence :)

  24. Nick in SF May 7th, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    Osama bin Laden: Sabermetrician?

    “Courtesy of the UK’s Daily Mail, Osama bin Laden’s wife revealed to Pakistani investigators that the al-Qaeda leader, who Navy SEALs killed while he was dressed in pajamas, had not left their shared room in five years. OK, so Osama wasn’t living in his mother’s basement, but otherwise he was a near-perfect fit for the sabermetrician stereotype.

    Left unclear from the article is whether he had ghostwritten blog posts for Fangraphs and tried to get one of his sons a summer internship in the A’s front office.”

  25. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    If Colon is going to throw all fastballs against this team then he must locate otherwise they will kill you

  26. syd_cash May 7th, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    eek almost clean inning

  27. jackamir May 7th, 2011 at 8:20 pm

    Coney is a saber guru. He loves that stuff…… Young really lives for the days against us…..

  28. Jerkface May 7th, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    Blast from the past Michael Young takes Bartolo Colon deep.

  29. JobaTipsHisCap May 7th, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    Kill heat

  30. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    Young is getting up there in age and he seems to have no problem hitting so that should give Jeter and Posada some hope.

  31. Triple Short of a Cycle May 7th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

    this ump is all over the place

  32. Nick in SF May 7th, 2011 at 8:24 pm

    Denny’s? :oops:

  33. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 8:25 pm

    It’s going to be a tough night if that is called a strike

  34. Jerkface May 7th, 2011 at 8:25 pm

    We’re getting beat by a guy that eats at Dennys :x

  35. jackamir May 7th, 2011 at 8:26 pm

    I heard Bin Laden was a Red Sox fan and for 5 yrs. he never missed a game. Jerry Remy was his favorite announcer and Pedroia his favorite player.

  36. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 8:26 pm

    Quick couple of comments about Gardner bunting (to follow up from prior thread):

    1. I have noi problem with Gardner bunting alot as long as he confines it to batting practice
    2. In the sacrifice last night, a player who sees the rotation on has to be smart enough to swing to play pepper and send the ball up the middle. That is Gardner’s fault
    3. After watching that sacrifice play again, the fault for the out goes mainly to Jorge Posada exhibiting his usual terrible baserunning. When the SS is cheating for a rotation play, Posada has to extend his lead to keep pace with the SS. The 2B was covering first, and there was no one keeping him close, but he did not extend his lead.
    4. As mentioned last night, the second bunt was Gardner’s idea, but they are teaching him to bunt by squaring up. His technique sucks…pocket that concept until you learn to do it right. Study tapes of Vic Davillio, Rod Carew, Brett Butler and others.

    That is all.

  37. syd_cash May 7th, 2011 at 8:26 pm

    hope the Yanks hit tonight

  38. Nick in SF May 7th, 2011 at 8:26 pm

    If he’d switch to Perkins he might meet Tiger Woods.

  39. Jerkface May 7th, 2011 at 8:27 pm

    So is Holland getting both the inside and outside corner?

  40. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 8:27 pm

    jackamir May 7th, 2011 at 8:26 pm
    I heard Bin Laden was a Red Sox fan and for 5 yrs. he never missed a game. Jerry Remy was his favorite announcer and Pedroia his favorite player.
    _______
    That would explain his anger at the world and hatred of NYC

  41. Carl May 7th, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    Should have DL/d A-Rod.

  42. syd_cash May 7th, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    not kewl….c’mon Colon

  43. jacksquat May 7th, 2011 at 8:30 pm

    Belt high, got to get it down.

  44. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    You can’t pitch against this team just throwing fastballs. Colon won’t last long if he doesn’t mix in other pitches in.

  45. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    Nick in SF May 7th, 2011 at 8:19 pm
    Osama bin Laden: Sabermetrician?
    __________
    Osama bin Laden: Navy SEAL?

    As I understand it, OBL admired the SEAL’s motto as he understood it…which was “Leave No Man’s Behind.”

  46. Carl May 7th, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    You can’t pitch against this team just throwing fastballs. Colon won’t last long if he doesn’t mix in other pitches in.

    Unless its a team full of Jeters

  47. jackamir May 7th, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    I wish we had Murphy just so he wouldn’t play against us. What are his career stats batting against us? This could get ugly early…

  48. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    2 run lead won’t last tonight

  49. Jerkface May 7th, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    That was right down the middle

  50. syd_cash May 7th, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    c’mon Colon please don’t let this inning get away from you. Leave it at 2-0

  51. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    I am glad Holland’s strike zone is gigantic…Colon better find himself quickly…

  52. syd_cash May 7th, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    ….or not. Hope the Yanks are up for a slug fest

  53. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    Colon has batting practice. Girardi should just leave him out there instead of killing the bullpen

  54. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    Colon can throw 100$ fastballs if he has command, movement, and location. Obviously, he doesn’t have that early.

    But all things considered, if Colon gives us great games 66% of time, then he is going to have a clunker every so often. No big deal

  55. Jerkface May 7th, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    Can’t expect the pitching, especially guys like Garcia and Colon, to be perfect every time. Offense needs to backup Colon who has certainly done a lot for them

  56. Carl May 7th, 2011 at 8:37 pm

    Kills me how the Yanks swing through and take fastballs down the middle.

    Besides Grandy of course.

  57. rconn23 May 7th, 2011 at 8:37 pm

    Texas is a horrible matchup for Colon.

    He attacks hitters with fastballs, and more fastballs, and all Texas does is crush fastballs.

    They are terrible with offspeed stuff.

    The way the Yankees offense looks tonight this game is pretty much over.

  58. GreenBeret7 May 7th, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    Colon has nothing so far. A slow non-moving fastball and no breaking pitch

  59. Niblick May 7th, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    There’s always tomorrow.

  60. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    Was Kinsler just tipping his hat to the crowd? Between that and the antler crap this team is very immature.

  61. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    Time to bring in the secret weapon–Buddy Carylisle (sp?)

  62. syd_cash May 7th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    yeah i can’t me too mad at Colon the Yanks need to start scoring more runs. Also our starting pitching has been so good lately. They are due for a game where the offense picks them up

  63. rconn23 May 7th, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    You can’t expect to pick up pitchers off the scrap heap like Garcia and Colon and expect them to be Cy Young caliber forever.

    If the offense can’t wake up, they’ll be out of first place by next week.

  64. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    Colon has been great so a game like this was coming. With the way this offense is hitting I doubt they can overcome a start like this. Oh well CC is on the mound tomorrow.

  65. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    If this continues, I might do something more enjoyable–like give myself a few root canals.

  66. GreenBeret7 May 7th, 2011 at 8:44 pm

    Well that was luck, but, what an ugly inning.

  67. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 8:44 pm

    This ump’s strike zone is all over the place. I think he had a couple of beers before the game.

  68. jackamir May 7th, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    Celtics vs. Heat starting to look good…

  69. Jerkface May 7th, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    Maybe this is one of those barn burners where the final score is like 8 – 7

    Lets get some runs :x

  70. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    Looks like I picked a bad night to give up sniffing glue.

  71. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    Martin is the new Jeter with all of these DP’s

  72. igotid88 May 7th, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    they’re becoming the NY Jeters with these dps

  73. jackamir May 7th, 2011 at 8:50 pm

    This game has a stench to it. A real stinker. As soon as YankeesNmore comes on I’m out of here.

  74. Jerkface May 7th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    Wow the best ball Jeter has ever hit this year

  75. yankeefeminista May 7th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    XBH

  76. kd May 7th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    looks like jeter can still elevate a ball

  77. syd_cash May 7th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    was that soft…anyone????

  78. Carl May 7th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    This team is full of Rally killers.

  79. jacksquat May 7th, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    Was that Derek Jeter?

  80. LGY May 7th, 2011 at 8:52 pm

    Holy crap. I think Jeter hit that ball harder than every other ball he has hit this year combined.

  81. 108 stitches May 7th, 2011 at 8:53 pm

    The Rays are lurking and could be in 1st place before the night is over. Who would have figured ?

  82. DocTodd May 7th, 2011 at 8:54 pm

    Saw that too, Kinsler tipped his cap after sac fly….what a dork

  83. Nick in SF May 7th, 2011 at 8:54 pm

    swing from your heels, Tex, we need runs.

  84. Carl May 7th, 2011 at 8:55 pm

    108 stitches May 7th, 2011 at 8:53 pm

    The Rays are lurking and could be in 1st place before the night is over. Who would have figured ?

    If you have been watching this team every game, like most of us here have, it’s not shocking.

  85. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 8:55 pm

    Good at bat by Granderson. Let’s go Tex!!

  86. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 8:55 pm

    Time for a Text msg

  87. Carl May 7th, 2011 at 8:56 pm

    Washington probably said, pitch around Tex, and pitch to A-Rod.

  88. syd_cash May 7th, 2011 at 8:56 pm

    Holland has lost the plate, maybe Tex 3-run HR

  89. LGY May 7th, 2011 at 8:57 pm

    The Yankees are on pace to ground into 200 double plays this season :shock:

    The MLB is 174.

  90. Jerkface May 7th, 2011 at 8:57 pm

    Even if the Yankees lost tonight they’d still have a superior win pct vs the Rays :x

  91. LGY May 7th, 2011 at 8:57 pm

    MLB *record*

  92. syd_cash May 7th, 2011 at 8:58 pm

    I will take it!!!! Now A-rod it’s time for a big hit, you are LONG overdue

  93. Jerkface May 7th, 2011 at 8:59 pm

    A-rod has had 2 really good swings this game :(

  94. Carl May 7th, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    Missed a hanger.

  95. LGY May 7th, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    Time to bunt?

  96. The Other Phil May 7th, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    Let’s go Cano!

  97. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    Cano can hit this guy

  98. syd_cash May 7th, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    we have got to get a big hit in this situation. Please tell me Robbie Cano that you can get a 2 out base hit. That will put us back in the game

  99. igotid88 May 7th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    Ca-YES

  100. Jerkface May 7th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    Barn burner :x Called it (kind of)

  101. The Other Phil May 7th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    Cano!!!

  102. Rich in NJ May 7th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    Vintage Cano!

  103. LGY May 7th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    The offense is alive!

  104. syd_cash May 7th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE YOU MUCHO CANO!!!!!!!!!!!!

  105. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    With his speed, Cano can have an inside the park double…but fortunately he got a triple!

  106. DocTodd May 7th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    Nice,

  107. kd May 7th, 2011 at 9:03 pm

    robbie cano don’t you know

    best second basemen in the bigs

  108. Carl May 7th, 2011 at 9:03 pm

    Thank you lord

  109. LGY May 7th, 2011 at 9:03 pm

    Pretty funny.

    If Cano makes an out there, half the board freaks out about Cano swinging at the first pitch in that situation.

  110. The Other Phil May 7th, 2011 at 9:03 pm

    Come on Swish! Keep the line moving!

  111. syd_cash May 7th, 2011 at 9:03 pm

    at least Cano can get it done! Huge two-out hit. Maybe Swish ties it up????? Maybe

  112. Chase May 7th, 2011 at 9:03 pm

    ROBBIE CANO IS MY HERO!!!

  113. Rich in NJ May 7th, 2011 at 9:04 pm

    “If Cano makes an out there, half the board freaks out about Cano swinging at the first pitch in that situation.”

    You make it sound like that’s a bad thing????

    Now Colon has to try and hold them here

  135. Nick in SF May 7th, 2011 at 9:11 pm

    Gardner would have bunted for a triple.

  136. Jerkface May 7th, 2011 at 9:12 pm

    Gardner gets that :x

  137. Rich in NJ May 7th, 2011 at 9:12 pm

    Gardner catches that.

  138. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 9:12 pm

    Gardner would have caught that ball…or at least bunted it.

    Murphy that drunken Irishman always kills us.

  140. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 9:13 pm

    Jones is awful in LF. He had a couple of great years…probably with some assistance but I think he is done. I would rather see Gardner against lefties or someone from AAA.

  141. LGY May 7th, 2011 at 9:13 pm

    The Yankees could really use Gardner out in LF with the way Colon is allowing fly balls all over the park tonight.

  142. jacksquat May 7th, 2011 at 9:13 pm

    Kind of a nonchalant effort there by Jones.

  143. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 9:14 pm

    Even Nunez catches that ball…probably hits better too

  144. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 9:15 pm

    If Jones isn’t going to hit and it seems like he won’t you can’t have his defense in the field. It’s like having Thames out there.

  145. P May 7th, 2011 at 9:16 pm

    After complaining about how boring this offense has been.. what a great inning ! For sure it was a confidence builder for me to believe in them.. but more importantly, a confidence builder for the Yankees!!! This is the type of game, come back that gets your bats out of a slump!!!

    It all started with Jeter !!! I was really hoping he got all of it.. either way, Jeter looks like he’s following the ball good tonight.. I haven’t seen him swing with that type of authority all year.. so another positive tonight.. !!

    The last positive.. I like seeing colon excited and ready to get out there and keep the team in it.. I don’t know if BC will pitch this good all season.. but I like his attitude.

  146. Rich in NJ May 7th, 2011 at 9:16 pm

    Nasty pitch.

  147. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 9:16 pm

  151. jackamir May 7th, 2011 at 9:18 pm

    Things were a bit bleak the first two innings but now I see some clear skies in the future. Somebody once said that’s why they play 9 innings and it’s not over till its over.

  152. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 9:18 pm

    If Yankees play in warm weather thru rest of May, we’ll get a real idea of where Jeter, Posada, and others are.

    Never could figure out why Tomko ended up a bust. Great arm, high draft, but, never could connecy for an extended period of time.

  163. jackamir May 7th, 2011 at 9:22 pm

    Tomko has a bit of a grudge against Cashman & Co. He felt slighted when he was DFA’d.

  215. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 9:45 pm

    Arod should probably sit out tomorrow’s game. If he is healthy work with Long and if not then just rest. His issues look to be more than just a slump.

    Keep ‘em positive!

  226. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 9:49 pm

    Good move by Girardi taking Colon out before it gets ugly. Logan hasn’t been great this year but Colon is getting the ball up and over all too many fastballs.

  227. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 7th, 2011 at 9:50 pm

    “I like Bartolo, win or lose, he’s a pro..”

    Very nice. I definitely agree.

  229. rconn23 May 7th, 2011 at 9:50 pm

    Not a bad call here. Colon is just throwing BP fastballs at this point. Seeing that the 3-4-5 hitters can’t do anything against Brett Tomko, every run is important.

  230. Rich in NJ May 7th, 2011 at 9:51 pm

  231. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 9:51 pm

    For arguably the greatest defensive OFer in baseball history, Jones has been a tremendous disappointment in limited duty. I accept that he has lost a lot of his speed, but he seems to get poor reads and jumps, and doesn’t seem to hustle at all. I am getting fed up with him.

  241. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 9:54 pm

    He hasn’t really provided at the plate, and his work in the field is … disappointing. I like that word. I thought he’d be able to handle LF and RF with ease and even be able to move over to CF on occasion but I wouldn’t trust him out there.

  271. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 10:01 pm

    JF–I’m deadly serious when I suggest making Eduardo Nunez the 4th OFer….I think he would bring a better bat, speed, and hustle to the role that Jones doesn’t provide. I think he is a better option than any of the AAA kids….and can also spell ARod at third (like Bautista can play OF and 3B). It would give him more ABs and hasten his development too.

  272. Pat M. May 7th, 2011 at 10:01 pm

    Parraz at Scranton is hitting better, but, no experience. He, too can play all three spots, not the kind of speed and power Maxwell has to offer, but, doesn’t strikeout as much. The other hitter is Dickerson. Not big power but good speed and can play the three outfields pretty well. Golson is om the DL.

    Arod shouldn’t be playing. It’s obvious he isn’t 100% and he looks like garbage. I wish they would bat Cano 3rd until Tex and Arod wake up. Knowing Tex that probably won’t be until June.

  401. Rich in NJ May 7th, 2011 at 10:35 pm

    Great stab.

  402. GreenBeret7 May 7th, 2011 at 10:35 pm

    Murphy and Moreland may never become outstanding hitters, but, they are a real pain and can do a lot of damage.

  403. ericns1 May 7th, 2011 at 10:36 pm

    Ethier hitting streak snapped!

  404. ac1 May 7th, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    i agree about cano third.
    shouldnt the hitter with the best average be hitting third?
    i always thought that was how teams usually did it.

  405. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    Interesting thing that may decide the McCourt Dodgers issue is how the IRS rules when it looks at their books. I suspect there is some fudging going on there….a crook is a crook

  406. LGY May 7th, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    Alex is hitting .181 with 3 XBH in 61 PAs since his injury :(

  407. Pat M. May 7th, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    It doesn’t seem that long ago that when the starter was being replaced he stayed on the mound until the reliever arrived and then he and his manager walked back together….Unless he was for hunger that day he’d leave for the showers right away…….I need Jeter to get north of the .270 Jeter line or it’s going to cost me some coins….

  408. P May 7th, 2011 at 10:39 pm

    when is Joe gonna wake the F up and realize Tex does not belong in the 3 hole??? Enough already with this weak manager afraid to hurt feelings.. Cano should be batting 3rd without question.. i dont care about b2b lefties with Grandy 2 hole.. Joe is a friggin idiot and he costs us many games already this year.

    no compaddion from me for JG anymore.. the faster hes out of town the happier ill be. Give Pena a shot, cant be worse than this clown!

  410. Rich in NJ May 7th, 2011 at 10:40 pm

    If you need a LHB out, summon Robertson. Logan should be lumped with Carlisle for low leverage situations only.

  411. ac1 May 7th, 2011 at 10:40 pm

    P, and if Joe is so insistent on not having b2b lefties, put swish 2nd and grandy behind tex and alex. i mean he is good protection with 10 homeruns.

  412. ac1 May 7th, 2011 at 10:42 pm

    time to start looking at bad teams to see who may be available….
    one of those crappy teams must have a lefty we can take.

  413. LGY May 7th, 2011 at 10:42 pm

    Cano is not getting on base enough to hit 3rd.

  414. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 10:43 pm

    I come back to the point that it would really help Joe to get a strategic offensive coordinator to advise him…like Zim used to advise Torre. Girardi is good at handling a pitching staff, but kinda weak handling an offense.

  415. P May 7th, 2011 at 10:43 pm

    arod is terrible.. shoulda went on the DL .. hes trying real hard to get it goin, but hes not helpin at all. such a shame too with his incredible start..

    this offense had 1 good inning.. thats all they r goid fir each game!

    love the 1 pitch 1 out fron this team!!!!!!! take a damn pitch!!!

  416. ac1 May 7th, 2011 at 10:43 pm

    good point lgy.
    tex’s obp is 50 points higher.

  417. LGY May 7th, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    Cano has had 29 PAs this season with RISP.

    Tex has had 22.

  418. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 10:44 pm

  423. TD213 May 7th, 2011 at 10:46 pm

    Granderson is our best hitter – he should be hitting cleanup.

    Managers are too robotic these days having ‘set’ lineups. Not like the old days where managers would ride the hot hand and shuffle lineups based on how the hitters are performing at the present time. If we had Earl Weaver managing the lineup would be Gardner-Swisher-Martin-Grandy-Cano-Tex-ARod-Posada-Jeter.

  424. Jerkface May 7th, 2011 at 10:46 pm

    Threat of the bunt has worked to perfection drawing the defense in. Now do the thing that beats that

  425. P May 7th, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    and tex is gettin on base enough to hit 3rd????

    bottom line Tex is not Tex of ’09 he wasnt in ’10 and hes not in ’11.. June is coming fast and its time to make changes!!!

  426. LGY May 7th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    Alex has had 30 PAs with RISP this season despite only playing 27 games.

    If you want Cano moved up in the lineup all this stuff should be directed at Alex, not Tex.

    You guys want Cano in the cleanup spot, not the 3 hole.

  427. Jerkface May 7th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    and tex is gettin on base enough to hit 3rd????

    .243 .378 .544 .922

    .302 .320 .569 .889

    Tex is getting on base more. Cano is ‘hitting more’

  428. Jerkface May 7th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    Wow they had Gardner played perfectly, I thought that was a hit :(

  429. LGY May 7th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

  430. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    BTW Rich and GB7–When I talk about Nunez, I am talking about projecting him as a serviceable 4th OFer/RH bat. Anything more would be gravy, but I think he is the best of our options for replacing Jones. That was my point. I suspect my clustering him with the others may have given the impression that I expect him to be a superstar. That was not my point…but was probably unclear.

  431. Ace May 7th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

  440. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 10:53 pm

    Could someone here announce what speed Joba is hitting? Sterling doesn’t mention it.

  441. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 10:53 pm

    They only have 6 hits tonight. With so many guys in the lineup ice cold it’s hard to get back to back hits and score runs. I wonder how long Posada’s leash is?! That is one spot that they have an answer for if they want to use it.

  442. LGY May 7th, 2011 at 10:53 pm

    yex shpuld not b hitting 3rd!!! Cabo’s on base would go up i bet too.. either way move tex period!

    How exactly would Cano’s on base go up?

    He has turned into Vlad Guerrero this season. His plate discipline has been awful as he is swinging at everything.

    He has THREE friggin walks all season. 3.

  443. P May 7th, 2011 at 10:53 pm

  444. ac1 May 7th, 2011 at 10:54 pm

    His on base is 65 points higher.

  446. BoJo May 7th, 2011 at 10:55 pm

    Texas will be running here..if history is any indication

  447. Rich in NJ May 7th, 2011 at 10:55 pm

    If there is an offensive flaw on this team, it’s not hits v. HR, it’s how much they rely on Alex to be Alex.

  452. GreenBeret7 May 7th, 2011 at 10:57 pm

    A vulture win is when you blow another pitcher’s win and get the win yourself…like Phil Regan or Tyler Clippard, not when you come into a losing game and your team takes the win.

  455. Rich in NJ May 7th, 2011 at 10:57 pm

    They can do this.

  456. ac1 May 7th, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    This Tex stuff is so dumb.

    Mark Teixiera has been a BETTER offensive player than Robinson Cano this season.

    It is amazing how many dumb posts have been written about how great Cano has been this season and how bad Tex has been.

    Tex has been better.

    Moving Cano to the 3 hole does nothing. It will give him less opportunities with RISP than he has in the 5 hole.

    Alex in the cleanup spot is the problem right now. NOT Tex in the 3 hole.

  458. Captain Clutch May 7th, 2011 at 10:59 pm

    “it’s how much they rely on Alex to be Alex.”
    ———

    If Tex was actually hitting then Arod slumping for 2 weeks wouldn’t really be a big deal. But considering the fat that Tex doesn’t hit until June every year it doesn’t help. It always put so much pressure on the #2 and #4 hitters because he does nothing for 2 months.

    In the last 30 days Tex is making less outs than Cano, but Cano is hitting the ball harder, ergo its better to have Cano come up after Tex because while he might make an out more often, he has a guys on base more often. LGY framed the debate well, replace Alex with Cano, not Tex. That does nothing.

    Alex is killing rallies right now and needs to get back to his game.

    If you have a lot of talent as a ball player on a team where nobody likes you.. what happens?

    you get traded or people stay away from you.

    Isn’t a teams best hitter supposed to hit 3rd? If so, Cano should be in the 3rd spot.

    Define best? Makes the least amount of outs? The highest amount of ‘not outs’ = hits?
