Yankees pregame: Top of the order

Posted by: Brian Heyman - Posted in Misc on Jun 15, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Brett Gardner had three hits and a walk in the leadoff spot last night with righty Alexi Ogando going for the Rangers. Joe Girardi has decisions to make at the top of the order now with Derek Jeter down. And he had Gardner on the bench and Nick Swisher in the leadoff spot tonight with lefty Derek Holland going for Texas.

Swisher has a .438 on-base percentage against lefties.

“It seemed like a pretty good fit,” Girardi said. 

Asked if he found it odd that he was out of the lineup after the night he had, Gardner said, “I don’t know. I don’t know. You tell me.”

Gardner did say he had a good track record for against lefties dating back to his Double-A and Triple-A days. Girardi said he wasn’t necessarily married to the idea of sitting Gardner against all lefties. Asked about sitting him at the start of this game, Girardi said, “It was tough. But I don’t think it necessarily hurts to give him a day as much as he uses his legs.”   

*Girardi said Phil Hughes would go 65-70 pitches in his next rehab start Sunday. It will be his first in an actually minor-league game after two other outings, the last one a minor-league intrasquad game Tuesday. Girardi wants Hughes to get five or six starts in all before returning in July (barring any setbacks, of course).

*Rafael Soriano played catch on Tuesday, but it was determined that his elbow wasn’t ready yet for him to continue his throwing program this week. He will have more therapy and then try to throw again next week. “He’s close, but he’s not quite there,” Girardi said.

*Girardi said that Brian Gordon will be added to the pitching staff tomorrow, but he wasn’t ready to name the 32-year-old righty – who opted out with the Phillies after being with their Triple-A Lehigh Valley team – as the starter in the series finale. He said it will be Gordon or Hector Noesi. He wants to get through tonight’s game first. He also said that he doesn’t just consister Noesi a long man, that he’s willing to use him in the middle innings as well.

*While the Yankees will be headed for Chicago after tomorrow’s game, Derek Jeter will be headed to Tampa to continue his rehab.

    Gardner sounds peeved.

    Don’t worry, we will protest on your behalf.

    the Yankees will be headed for Chicago after tomorrow?s game

    ***************************
    yay!!!! :)

  3. Niblick June 15th, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    Gardner has every reason to be peeved. Girardi has to be the stupidest guy who ever came to manage in the big leagues.

  4. Carlos June 15th, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    I read that Soriano’s elbow felt good, but they just wanted to give him an extra week.

    Reading what you wrote, it seems like he’s still hurt.

  5. ac1 June 15th, 2011 at 5:04 pm

    Free Pinella!!!!

  6. Warning Track Power June 15th, 2011 at 5:06 pm

    Can not be easy to write a line-up with the current roster and vs. a lefty.
    I would not be surprised if tomorrow Gardner is back at the top with A. Jones as the DH.

  7. LGY June 15th, 2011 at 5:07 pm

    Great. I forgot that I’m going to have to stare at Jones all game when I bought tickets in LF.

    Now I’m gonna have to heckle him too :(

    If you hear a guy yelling Gardner woulda had that, that’s me.

  8. Niblick June 15th, 2011 at 5:08 pm

    LGY – you may very well lose your voice yelling that.

  9. Pat M. June 15th, 2011 at 5:08 pm

    For those here who haven’t seen Cubbies shortstop Starlin Castro you’re in for a treat….Nothing wrong with Jones getting ab’s to safe his tenure in The Bronx….

  10. Nick in SF June 15th, 2011 at 5:09 pm

    We all know what really happened. A certain injured Yankee captain doesn’t want anyone else getting too successful comfortable up in that leadoff spot. #justkiddingofcourse

  11. RadioKev June 15th, 2011 at 5:09 pm

    Well, all the more reason for Jones to go out there and prove his worth tonight. If he wants to keep seeing these at bats he’s got to keep showing us something for it.

  12. West Coast Yankee Fan June 15th, 2011 at 5:11 pm

    In all fairness to Girardi everyone is aware that the Yankees are dealing with a multitude of injuries. But, what the hell is he thinking with this lineup? What is more dangerous, Joey G. being binder happy – or trying to be creative? Crap shoot.

  13. PacoDooley June 15th, 2011 at 5:17 pm

    My main problem is giving Jones a start over anyone not named Cervelli on this team. Gardner deserves to be out there since he beats Jones at pretty much every aspect of the game (okay, so Jones will do what he did a while back and make me look stupid by hitting a homer or two – I still think he needs to go – too bad the Yankees have no OF depth in the minors!).

    ————

    Who knows how badly A-Rod needs the half day. It’s his job to manage that, so you’ve got to believe this is the best time for it. That’s really the only issue here. Without that, Jones would be DH and Gardener would be in the line up, and Pena wouldn’t be on the field.

  15. Captain Clutch June 15th, 2011 at 5:19 pm

    When is Martin coming back?! I hope we don’t have to see Cervelli and the pitcher back to back in the NL.

    I accept the fact you’re venting, but its not fair to compare Cervelli to Gardner because they don’t play the same position.
    A. Jones needs at bats
    Gardner also needs at bats
    Swisher needs at bats as well.
    ARod from time to time will need a DH day, 1/2 game off.

    ________________________________________________

    I’m not comparing Cervelli to Gardner – I am saying that the only player I have less confidence in than Jones on offense is Cervelli – obviously Jones is not catching a game. But why sit Gardner and play Jones, even if Jones might occasionally provide some power? His downside is big and Gardner should be treated as an everyday LF (just look at his last 50 games).

    And to say “A. Jones needs at bats” is being too kind. He might want ABs, but the team is better off with him not getting them

  18. Niblick June 15th, 2011 at 5:33 pm

    Good thing that Nova is a ground ball pitcher. The first three line drives won’t get past Jonesie until the 6th inning or so.

  19. RS June 15th, 2011 at 5:33 pm

    If Cervelli had to catch CC in a NL park, I think CC would have to bat 8th…

  20. blake June 15th, 2011 at 5:36 pm

    Jones need to play less not more…..

    Nice one, but sadly true…

  22. Pat M. June 15th, 2011 at 5:40 pm

    If all goes to plan Andruw Jones will be out of the game by the 5th, which means Texas had to yank their starter…….Spotlight for me will be on Ivan Nova, as I’m hoping he’s turned the corner for the 2011 season

  23. Betsy June 15th, 2011 at 5:40 pm

    I just don’t get why the Yankees decided Noesi wasn’t good enough for them to make one start – maybe more. He’s shown promise and Gordon is just a journeyman, no matter what he’s doing in AAA. It doesn’t say much for the Yankees’ faith in their kids, so it’s odd that Cashman is always touting the young pitching in the system. Given that the idea of having depth is for situations such as this, it just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense that the Yankees would reach outside of their organization.

  24. LGY June 15th, 2011 at 5:41 pm

    Looking at Brian Gordon’s mL numbers.

    Anyone think he could out hit Swish vs righties? ;)

  25. blake June 15th, 2011 at 5:42 pm

    This jonesy thing is basically what they did with Kearnsy last year…..if they don’t think Gardner can play every day then make a trade or sign someone that they think can……personally id prefer to just let Gardner play 155 games and see what happens.

  26. LGY June 15th, 2011 at 5:42 pm

    Gordon isn’t a journeyman.

    He didn’t start pitching until he was 28.

  27. Kevin Not That Kevin Brown June 15th, 2011 at 5:42 pm

    I’m not a big Girardi basher but I feel like this lineup is a bad idea for (at least) two reasons:

    1) Just plain really bad timing. Because it was the first game after Jeter went down, to have Gardner really deliver in this pressure-packed, spotllght-on-him situation, and then walk in the next day and find out you’re not even playing? The message it sends to a player who has struggled a lot this year but has really broken out of it lately is: thanks, Brett, for stepping up when we really needed you, didn’t matter, now sit down.

    2) How badly it was handled by Girardi, and this is something that he seems to do a lot. If his explanation to the press was as lame as that, can you imagine how bad it was to Gardner? He’s using his legs too much? How old is Gardner? He clearly didn’t speak with Gardner because he was really pissed.

  28. blake June 15th, 2011 at 5:43 pm

    Pat M,

    Yea it’ll be intersting to see if Nova can build on his last start.

  29. Niblick June 15th, 2011 at 5:43 pm

    Actually, there is a lot to be said for batting your worst hitter 8th. Tango’s The Book talks about it. So maybe CC should stay 9th. No need to embarrass Cervelli if it isn’t even the right move.

  30. Betsy June 15th, 2011 at 5:44 pm

    LGY, semantics…….He’s 28 and he’s not like he’s some hot stud prospect. I still would prefer to see the Yankees go with one of their kids that they supposedly like.

  31. Niblick June 15th, 2011 at 5:45 pm

    As to Gordon: It’s the old “grass is greener” syndrome, with which the Yankees “brain trust” is so handicapped. The other guy on the other team has to be better than whoever we’ve got. It must really suck to be a minor leaguer in the Yankees system, knowing that you’ll never get a chance because idiots like Cashman will always hire some washed-up, has-been, never-will-be, veteran.

  32. Bronx Jeers June 15th, 2011 at 5:46 pm

    I’m selling my tickets to tomorrow’s game for 28 cents to honor the Yanks quest for their 28th championship.

    :smile:

  33. Warning Track Power June 15th, 2011 at 5:47 pm

    If there was a RH starter throwing for the rangers today, of course Bret would be out there.
    Nothing wrong with giving him a day off vs a lefty and then putting him back into the line-up vs a lefty tomorrow.
    Granderson can’t sit. No chance. He’s better than Gardner today.
    Since Swish has those great numbers vs a lefty, he has to play.
    A. Jones was brought over to play occasionally vs lefties.
    Today is one of those occasional days.

  34. Betsy June 15th, 2011 at 5:48 pm

    Wow:

    From RAB:

    “During the chaos of last week’s amateur draft, two tweets from Baseball America’s Conor Glassey made the rounds, but I have yet to address them. Here’s what they said…

    @rwolfe09 Not coincidentally, the Red Sox and Blue Jays have two of the biggest scouting staffs. Yankees? One of the smallest.
    @JoeRo23 By my count, they have 23 scouts. Blue Jays have 70. Red Sox have 71.”
    ********

    If this is all true, how is this possible?

  35. LGY June 15th, 2011 at 5:49 pm

    Making your first ML start against these Rangers is no walk in the park.

    Gordon keeps all their options open and gives the Yanks a look at him to possibly help the pen when Colon gets back.

  36. 11 CF June 15th, 2011 at 5:49 pm

    Each time the Yanks have faced Texas they’ve thrown 2 LH starters. What happens when it’s the post season?

  37. LGY June 15th, 2011 at 5:50 pm

    If this is all true, how is this possible?

    ——

    It’s not true.

    Several sources have debunked that nonsense.

  38. Bronx Jeers June 15th, 2011 at 5:50 pm

    And poof…. they’re already gone. It took about 45 seconds.

    After fees I just made myself a cool 48 cents.

  39. Betsy June 15th, 2011 at 5:53 pm

    LGY, thanks…………I found that hard to believe. I guess that’s what I get for going on RAB, lol

  40. bruceb June 15th, 2011 at 5:54 pm

    Never thought the Yankees would lose game four to the Indians or score 12 runs against the Rangers last night so I can’t say that this lineup is doomed to defeat, even though I don’t like it. What I will say though is that it puts a huge onus on our big guns – namely Tex, A-Rod, Cano and Grandy – to produce the goods.

  41. LGY June 15th, 2011 at 5:55 pm

    Betsy

    Lol. That article on RAB was awful.

  42. Betsy June 15th, 2011 at 5:57 pm

    LGY, I go on there just to sometimes read their chats – they are way too sabre oriented for me. They added new writers and I think that place has gotten weirder and worse since then, lol.

  43. kd June 15th, 2011 at 6:02 pm

    i have a question. are the ups and downs that nova seems to be going through atypical for a rookie pitcher?

    to me, he really does a good job of bouncing back and rarely has two bad starts in a row, which is a good sign. typically he has two good starts in a row more often.

    i’d like to see them give him an long leash, he could be a good, cost-controlled 4/5 guy for years to come.

  44. LGY June 15th, 2011 at 6:08 pm

    It’s also possible the Yanks are a little concerned about their kids swinging the bat and running the bases with NL games coming up.

  45. alvarofer June 15th, 2011 at 6:09 pm

    Gardner gets to rest but Jeter almost never does? Gardner is not awful against LH but when will you play Andrew Jones? Gardner should be the lead-off batter ALWAYS regardless of the pitcher and when Jeter comes back.

  46. Betsy June 15th, 2011 at 6:11 pm

    LGY, that’s possible………..I really don’t love interleague games. I get that NL pitchers can be hurt running the bases, etc… ,but at least they are used to it. AL pitchers and teams overall are at a disadvantage; the novelty has really worn off for me.

  47. Pat M. June 15th, 2011 at 6:11 pm

    Nibrick…..Maybe you should send in your impressive resume to Hal Steinbrenner as an assistant to Cashman and show him the light….

  48. Pat M. June 15th, 2011 at 6:11 pm

    Hi Betsy

  49. RadioKev June 15th, 2011 at 6:20 pm

    I’d also like to say about Brian Gordon that baseball is a funny sport, and some guys don’t come figure it out for a while. Werth, Bautista, Lee, and more are recent late bloomers. Rick Ankiel is a successful OF now after being a pitcher. These things happen, and I trust the Yankee scouts enough to know if this guy is worth it or not.

    Not to say he has more “promise” than our prospects, but hey, if he can help now, plug him in. Look no further than Bartolo Colon for that.

  50. mick June 15th, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    Betsy June 15th, 2011 at 5:40 pm

    I just don’t get why the Yankees decided Noesi wasn’t good enough for them to make one start – maybe more.
    ===============================
    Why is it always a referendum?
    Noesi is more valuable in the pen.

  51. Betsy June 15th, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    Hi Pat M

    How are you?

  52. ron June 15th, 2011 at 6:23 pm

    Nova’s numbers are terrible.

    67 innings,74 hits,29 walks,35 k,4.30 era,1.54 whip & the league is batting .274 against him.

    That is not going to cut it.

    Way to many walks,not enough strikeouts.

    It’s hard enough to do well not striking out many without compounding the problem by walking to many.

  53. Bronx Jeers June 15th, 2011 at 6:24 pm

    Nunez is hot on Jeter’s trail.

    http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-zSfi.....en3k28.jpg

  54. ron June 15th, 2011 at 6:28 pm

    Didn’t girardi say he will decide after tonights game?

    Maybe it depends on if noesi is needed tonight.
    What happens if noesi is needed tonight & we can’t use him tomorrow?

    Keep in mind joba,soriano,feliciano,marte are all hurt & are pen is light.

    Outside of noesi,we don’t have an established longman.
    In addition,logan is struggling.

    Imo girardi want’s noesi in the pen,where he has done well.

  55. luis June 15th, 2011 at 6:34 pm

    Hi everyone,

    Nova has been doing ok for a fifth starter, besides he has to go through his growing pains at some point, better now than later…….

  56. blake June 15th, 2011 at 6:35 pm

    The Yanks have been looking for an Aceves replacement since 2009 and I guess that’s what they want Noesi to do right now……too bad they didn’t just keep Aceves himself. Noesi is a starter though to me….he repeats his delivery better than Nova does.

  57. Shame Spencer June 15th, 2011 at 6:41 pm

    Who has the splits, has Gardner been that bad against lefties this season? I know his slash line over the past 40-50 games is more than solid.. I’m just curious because I hate the idea of enforcing the idea that some of our guys “can’t” hit lefties or righties. We saw it all last year with Granderson and now I’d rather put a hot poker in my eye than sit him against any pitcher in the ML.

  60. blake June 15th, 2011 at 6:44 pm

    Gardner has a .361 OBP against lefties this year and .364 lifetime…..he handles lefties well enough to play every day when the alternative is the ghost of Andrew Jones.

    I don’t like platoons unless they are absolutely necessary …..I think the consistent ABs against your weak side help stay sharp against the strong side.

  64. Ghostwriter June 15th, 2011 at 6:45 pm

    It’s pretty amazing that with all of the injuries the Yanks have weathered thus far this year, somehow we still seem to have a glut of pitching available as well a lot of choices.

    I think NOva is doing fine, and is showing progress. I really would like to see what Noesi can do. However, Gordon’s numbers in Triple this year are phenomenal, and it’s hard not to wonder if maybe the Yanks can catch lightning in a bottle with this guy.

    I really miss Aceves. I understand that the Yanks sent him packing because they didn’t care for his attitude, but he was one of the best PITCHERS that they had brought up in a very long time–maybe the best since El Duque.

    =======================

    Actually that makes alot of sense; more esense that the sitting Alex thing did. It also fits in with Girardi’s management style. Maybe in the offseason he should take a course in stats.

  75. ron June 15th, 2011 at 6:53 pm

    With nova’s numbers he probably gets yanked out of the rotation when hughes comes back.

    Garcia’s numbers are a little better & he is a veteran so the next few starts might make a difference.

    Man did gordon come out of nowhere.

    Gordon, 28 at the time, made his pitching debut with the Astros’ Double-A affiliate in 2007. He struck out 51 and walked just 14 unintentionally in 61 IP (39 appearances) in his pitching debut, posting a fine 3.25 ERA. He made one appearance with Houston’s Double-A affiliate in 2008 before they released him in early-April. Gordon caught on with the Rangers, pitched to a 3.51 ERA in 95 relief innings for their Double-A and Triple-A affiliates, then earned his first and only big league call-up that September. He gave up a single to the first batter he faced as a Major Leaguer (Dusty Ryan), retired the second (Curtis Granderson), and then finished the season with four scoreless innings for Texas.

    Another solid season for the Rangers’ Triple-A affiliate in 2009 (3.49 ERA in 77.1 IP) was following by a fine season for the Phillies’ Triple-A affiliate in 2010 (3.46 ERA in 78 IP), but not another taste of the big leagues. Gordon returned to Philadelphia’s top farm team in his usual relief role this season, but when injuries to the big league rotation sent Vance Worley to the show, Gordon told the Triple-A Lehigh Valley coaching staff that he wanted the opportunity to work as a starter. Since moving into the rotation in April, he’s struck out 53 against just five walks in 51.1 IP with a 1.23 ERA. Over his last three starts, Gordon has whiffed 31 of 72 batters he’s faced (43.1%) with no fewer than nine strikeouts each time out. He had an opt-out clause in his contract that was contingent on him finding a big league job elsewhere, which is what the Yankees are giving him. Since he made his last start on Saturday, the newest Yankee lines up perfectly for Thursday’s game.

  76. Shame Spencer June 15th, 2011 at 6:54 pm

    Thanks blake that’s pretty much what I figured. Jones can’t play defense to save his life and has been swinging blindly all year… I just don’t see how he’s an upgrade out there at all. I’ll be the first to admit I’ve been down on that signing since news broke of it, but he hasn’t exactly done much this season to make me have a change of heart.

    I just hate this nonsense that some of our guys “can’t” hit righties or lefties. I understand some guys struggle more against pitching from the opposite side, I get that lefties can hide the ball for longer, and I get that we need to keep guys fresh… but this just seems ridiculous. Jones is totally worthless. His spot could be used for another arm in the pen or another OF from AAA. Shane Spencer came up and hit like 1000 home runs. I’ll take my chances on an unknown quantity over Andruw at this point. I feel like the results would still be pretty similar, aside from the fact that I already know Jones is useless…. I have no idea how useless our minor leaguers are and I blame Uncle Joe for that.

    Kazmir released, sorry if this was already posted…

  78. luis June 15th, 2011 at 6:56 pm

    I just got it too

  79. Ghostwriter June 15th, 2011 at 6:56 pm

    I would still rather have the guy that can catch in left field, but there’s no sense in complaining about it.

  80. mick June 15th, 2011 at 6:56 pm

    Gordon is a great story and why not give him a start.
    Cash loves catching lightning in a bottle and if nothing else he will stay in the pen.

    I got the same email.

    D NOT click on that link and re-set password!

    Ignore it and delete.

  83. blake June 15th, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    Id pick Kazmir up…..he might be totally shot but he’s still young and he’s left handed. You’d have to be able to send him to the minors though.

  84. GreenBeret7 June 15th, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    If that request to reenter the password was legitimate, why is it coming from WordPress and not Jeff Marx’ crew?

  85. Prete Funk Era June 15th, 2011 at 7:01 pm

    So maybe I’m behind here but yanks get Corey Wade AAA Tampa rays guy. Good numbers.

  86. Ghostwriter June 15th, 2011 at 7:01 pm

    I can’t remember the last time I saw Kazmir pitch.

  87. blake June 15th, 2011 at 7:02 pm

    Shame,

    I agree….though as I said earlier the last time I trashed Andrew he hit 2 homers so that’s what im hoping for again tonight.

    ======================

    They must be running out of spots in Scranton. At this point, the whole team must be pitchers. You gonna put him in left field? :)

    hey that’s fine….LF, bat boy….whatever.

  90. Shame Spencer June 15th, 2011 at 7:04 pm

    Kazmir is an interesting case and if its possible to take a shot on him without giving anything up (including a roster spot at the moment) then I say do it. A lefty is a lefty, right? I mean… thats what I keep telling myself every time I see Boone Logan warming up.

  91. Ghostwriter June 15th, 2011 at 7:04 pm

    Somebody ought to warn Chad; it sounds like LoHud may have had it’s server hacked.

  92. Pat M. June 15th, 2011 at 7:05 pm

    GB……Did receive that message as well ???? Also, least night a Brackman conversation came up and my question to you is this….Have you seen him throw this season and if so what have you noticed differently from last season when he was real good coming out of the pen ????

  93. Shame Spencer June 15th, 2011 at 7:07 pm

    Very true blake, maybe all our bad vibes are motivating him. Unfortunately, I don’t think they can motivate him to play the field any better, so we’ll have to cross our fingers for some dingers (unintentional rhyming!).

    Speaking of dingers… anyone see that story about the guy who shot a 12 year old in the back for playing ding-dong-dash?! Oh this world..

  94. PacoDooley June 15th, 2011 at 7:09 pm

    Soriano to the 60 day DL sounds bad. Why has Wade been called up? Very odd.

  95. Jerkface June 15th, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    Soriano wasn’t coming back any time soon. He can come back next month as expected.

  96. syd_cash June 15th, 2011 at 7:11 pm

    ahhh I hate Cervelli as catcher….gosh he is awful (along with a bad pitch out throw)

  97. blake June 15th, 2011 at 7:11 pm

    That one was on Nova…

  98. PacoDooley June 15th, 2011 at 7:12 pm

    Gotta love Cervelli. Too bad the Yankees don’t have any catching talent in the minors to replace him…

  99. Tom in N.J. June 15th, 2011 at 7:13 pm

    Brian Gordon needs to be placed on 40 man, placing Sori on the 60 free’s up a spot.
