Yankees still leading in final all-star update

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jun 29, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Final all-star voting results will be announced on Sunday, and the Yankees are still in line to have five position players in the American League starting lineup. Alex Rodriguez, Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson are pretty comfortably in position. Derek Jeter and Russell Martin are in closer races — against players with better numbers — but voting ends on Thursday, so it would take a significant surge to change those results. The tightest race right now is between Josh Hamilton and Jacoby Ellsbury for the final outfield spot.

    I do find it interesting that some fail to look to see how Nova is improving monthly. Since May 1st he is 6-2 with a 3.78 era over 11 starts in 65 innings. Nova is going to stay in the rotation and deserves to stay there. He’s earned it.

  2. blake June 29th, 2011 at 12:03 pm

    Im happy that Alex is going to get a start again…..he deserves it.

  3. pat June 29th, 2011 at 12:04 pm

    Erin

    I’m gonna guess no personal questions was likely stipulated. Big DirectTV logo behind him so he was there working for a sponsor.

  4. CountryClub June 29th, 2011 at 12:04 pm

    If Hughes and Colon both come back, and everyone else stays healthy, Nova will go to the pen or to AAA to keep starting. Garcia wont be released and the team will say his stuff plays better as a starter (as opposed to a reliever).

    No matter who loses their job, it’ll most likely only be temporary. He will get another shot before the year is over.

    Blake-

    We are of one mind on that.

    I’ll take Colby Rasmus, Stanton, or Heyward too.

    Hey. I’m not greedy.

    ———————————————————————————————————————-

    LMAO. Things that could be said about you two sharing a mind. I’ll be nice and just let it go, though.

    GB-

    The braintrust will be in attendance at Trenton. Wow.

    Obviously they attach a lot of importance to seeing Hughes in person to gauge his progress.

    I hope he doesn’t disappoint.

    :)

  10. West Coast Yankee Fan June 29th, 2011 at 12:12 pm

    I liked Harper’s article today and he echoed what I have believed. We need to get Prince Fielder. We passed on Holliday, this would be far worse.

  11. pat June 29th, 2011 at 12:12 pm

    eboland11 Hughes retires first batter in seven pitches. According to one gun, hit 93 three times and 94 once.

    Hughes in 1st inning. Fastballs and curves.

    hard flyout to center

    strikeout swinging.

    10 strikes, 2 balls. 12 pitches

  15. upstate kate June 29th, 2011 at 12:15 pm

    Where is Fielder going to play? We already have a 1b and Fielder says he doesn[t want to DH.

    eboland11 Hughes strikes out third batter on 94 mph fastball

  17. blake June 29th, 2011 at 12:16 pm

    Fielder is going to cost more than Holliday and plays a position the Yanks have no need for.

  18. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 12:16 pm

    Thanks for the play-by-play.

  19. CountryClub June 29th, 2011 at 12:17 pm

    jnorris427 Josh Norris
    Last fastball from Hughes was 94.1 MPH

    The 94.1 means it came from someone with a gun and not the scoreboard. Good news.

  20. West Coast Yankee Fan June 29th, 2011 at 12:20 pm

    upstate kate June 29th, 2011 at 12:15 pm

    ***************

    “Fielder smiled at the mention of the short right-field porch here, but he wouldn’t go near any talk of potential landing spots for next season, though he did leave open the possibility that he could be happy as just a DH.”

    “I’m not ruling anything out,” he said, “but as for right now, I like playing first base.”

  21. CountryClub June 29th, 2011 at 12:21 pm

    mashmore98 Mike Ashmore
    I think, at 94 MPH, that any questions about Hughes’ velocity should be squashed. That’s from a scout gun, there is no stadium gun here.

  22. CountryClub June 29th, 2011 at 12:22 pm

    The Yanks arent paying Fielder 20+ mil per yr to be a DH. Maybe if they didnt have Arod on the team. But he will be playing less and less 3rd as he gets older.

  23. dan l June 29th, 2011 at 12:23 pm

    With 94 mph Hughes will make a good reliever.

  24. BIG AL June 29th, 2011 at 12:23 pm

    I think Hughes has to get through 6 with a PC under 100, and look good doing it.

  25. West Coast Yankee Fan June 29th, 2011 at 12:23 pm

    Fielder is 27 years old. He could be our DH and back-up first baseman for years to come. Posada’s $13 million comes off the books; we could afford him. He would be a money making superstar.

  26. CountryClub June 29th, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    Hughes pitch count today is only 85.

  27. West Coast Yankee Fan June 29th, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    That is crazy to not better your team because you might need a spot for A-Rod occasionally.

  28. BIG AL June 29th, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    Hughes at 94 mph doen’t mean anything, unlees he can sustain it throughout his appearance.

  29. Jason Voorhees June 29th, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    Really? A team that is dominating the league in HRs needs another power slugger? Prince is fantastic, but he’s a want. Not a need.

  30. CountryClub June 29th, 2011 at 12:26 pm

    The Yanks can afford Fielder, but they wont want to pay that much money to a player that will be locking down the DH. They’ll need the DH to be a revolving door over the next few years.

  31. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2011 at 12:26 pm

    Kruml leads off with single

    Joseph walk

  33. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 12:27 pm

    Al-

    I think Phil is only slated for 75.

    I’m just as interested in seeing the command again as the velo.

    He’s still building arm strength. The velo cannot be expected to remain constant at this time.

    He should get one more tuneup start at SWB and if all goes well it’s back to bigs after that.

    He is clearly back to better health. That’s great to hear.

  34. G. Love June 29th, 2011 at 12:27 pm

    West Coast,

    I think someone earlier this season had posted that even though Posada’s money comes off the books, the Yankees built in increases to Cano, Grandy, Swisher, Arod basically take away that savings.

    Something to keep in mind.

    That said, I wouldn’t be against signing Prince to be our DH. He’d be a monster here and help take some of the pressure off of everyone in the lineup when they hit their dry spells.

    I still think the Nationals open the vault for him in the off season though.

  35. CountryClub June 29th, 2011 at 12:28 pm

    West Coast Yankee Fan June 29th, 2011 at 12:25 pm
    That is crazy to not better your team because you might need a spot for A-Rod occasionally.

    ————–

    Occasionally? How long do you think Arod has as an everyday 3rd baseman? My guess is next yr will be the last yr that he plays the field every day.

  36. upstate kate June 29th, 2011 at 12:28 pm

    thanks for all the reports on Phil Pat, GB, CC

  37. G. Love June 29th, 2011 at 12:28 pm

    I like seeing Hughes hit 94, but I like reading he’s throwing curve balls in the first inning more. That CB he had in 2007 has to come back somehow.

  38. West Coast Yankee Fan June 29th, 2011 at 12:28 pm

    So who is our DH next year?

  39. BIG AL June 29th, 2011 at 12:29 pm

    If you could get Fielder as a DH/1B, and give A-Rod days off, Tex could play 3B on occasion.

  40. jacksquat June 29th, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    Team does not need Fielder. They won’t be interested in Fielder unless something catastrophic happens.

  41. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    G. Love-

    Repetition and focus.

    It’ll be back.

  42. pat June 29th, 2011 at 12:31 pm

    AmoreCourant #Yankees sign pitcher logan kensing off bridgeport blufish roster. He had 1.55 era … going to scranton. @BPTBluefish

  43. Joe from Long Island June 29th, 2011 at 12:32 pm

    I don’t think you can look at Prince Fielder’s acquisition as an isolated event.

    It would potentially impact not only the ability to use DH for Alex, but for Tex, and maybe even Jesus Montero. Further, it would cost a lot of dollars, which might be better allocated for Matt Kemp, who becomes a FA after next season. (That’s one reason to pick up the option on Swish, to have someone reasonably good fill the position for the 2012 season.)

    So, there’s a few things that play into that decision, besides what position to play Fielder at the first year of that proposed deal.

  44. West Coast Yankee Fan June 29th, 2011 at 12:32 pm

    Hughes is dominating so far and threw a ++ curve ball for a K.

  45. m June 29th, 2011 at 12:33 pm

    Just catching up. Good links and good commentary here. GB7, thanks for the radio feed. Listening now.

    So, am I to understand that scout readings are more accurate, and stadium guns (if there even is one) are rubbish?

    G. Love, I get that you’re down on Hughes, and I secretly worry about some of the same things. But you are definitely mistaken on 100 pitches before the 5th or however you worded it. Maybe this year, but probably not because he was getting knocked out. Are you a Joba to the rotation advocate? He’s the one that had rough time with pitch counts in his first full year of starting.

  46. Joe from Long Island June 29th, 2011 at 12:33 pm

    AL – I don’t think Tex has played 3B in years.

  47. West Coast Yankee Fan June 29th, 2011 at 12:34 pm

    Again, who is our primary DH next season. And, where is Fielder going; who can pay him $25 million a year? That’s not a trick question.

  48. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2011 at 12:34 pm

    Inning 2 for Hughes

    strikeout swinging on curve

    flyout to right

    strikeout swinging on fastball

    13 pitches, 10 strikes, 3 balls

  49. m June 29th, 2011 at 12:34 pm

    Isn’t Montero the DH next year? :P

    I’m not against Fielder per se. But I am against the contact he’ll be commanding. I hate Pujols personally, but same thing there.

  50. BIG AL June 29th, 2011 at 12:34 pm

    Go Phil, hope it all comes back to early 2010, and better.

  51. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2011 at 12:35 pm

    Hughes is good for 85 pitches

  52. m June 29th, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    MTU,

    Phil said he’s set for 85 pitches this outing and 100 for the next. At least that’s what I read here. Cuz this is where I get all the Yankee NEWS.

  53. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    For those of you who doubt Hughes.

    Here’s a thought.

    If he’s healthy and he pitches like he did in the first half of last year he’s an elite young arm.

    How did he do that ? Magic ? Smoke and mirrors ? Luck ?

    Guess again. Talent.

    ;)

  54. Joe from Long Island June 29th, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    DH next year is a fair question. If Montero is pencilled in, then I’d expect him to materialize in the Bronx sometime this summer. Otherwise, they’d have to get a hired gun for the season, which is not impossible.

  55. BIG AL June 29th, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    GB7 -

    At this rate, that would put Phil through 6 innings work, a ++ day for sure.

  56. Tom in N.J. June 29th, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    Cot’s has the Yankees payroll at 153 million dollars for next season.

    That number doesn’t include Cano’s option (an extra 12 million) and Swisher’s option (8 million).

  61. CountryClub June 29th, 2011 at 12:40 pm

    West Coast,

    Not sure who the full time DH will be next yr. But my guess is it will be someone that doesnt have a big price tag. Makes it easier to sit him a couple times a week for Jeter, Arod, Teix, etc…

    For example, would anyone be shocked if Jorge keeps hitting this yr and then resigns for like 2 or 3 mil? Personally, I dont think that WILL happen….but it’s possible.

  62. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 12:40 pm

    Tom-

    Bribes ?

  63. BIG AL June 29th, 2011 at 12:40 pm

    Joe -

    The Yankees had him taking GB there last week, must have been a reason. I still think he has the ability to play the position, just a great IF.

  64. m June 29th, 2011 at 12:42 pm

    I opened the Jesus and Matthews articles. I perused them both, should I read them? Or will they aggravate me. The Jesus writer lost me when they said that the Yankees are at fault for Montero’s attitude which the writer says doesn’t exist. And Matthews was trying to be to clever, too cute. I think I’ll save myself the grief.

  65. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 12:42 pm

    We missed on Holliday.

    Let’s not miss on Kemp or JU after next season.

    Kemp will be a FA. Gotta love that.

    :)

  66. jacksquat June 29th, 2011 at 12:43 pm

    If they sign a dedicated DH from outside the organization/current players, it will very likely be someone who will cost much less than what Fielder will get from someone (even if it isn’t 20+ mil/year).

  67. BIG AL June 29th, 2011 at 12:43 pm

    MTU -

    Any thoughts as to what it might cost to get JU?

  68. Erin June 29th, 2011 at 12:45 pm

    eboland11 Have not actually seen Cashman at this game (a fan tweeted that she had seen him) but did just see Reggie Jackson on the field.

  69. Rob_NY June 29th, 2011 at 12:45 pm

    Tom in NJ — That 153 only counts 12 people.

  70. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2011 at 12:46 pm

    Hughes 3rd inning

    groundout to 2nd base

    medium hard flyout to right field

    strikeout swinging on fastball

    7 pitches, 1 ball, 6 strikes

  71. West Coast Yankee Fan June 29th, 2011 at 12:46 pm

    It’s possible Country but I personally don’t think Posada is back, and I don’t think the Yankees see Montero as a DH option. I think he either backs up Martin next year at catcher and starts in 2013 or he is traded before then.

    My point is this. Just as with A-Rod, Sabathia and Teixeira, superstars do not become available every day. And not someone like Fielder who at 27 years of age would probably hit 350+ home runs as a Yankee. He would also have great money making potential, put people in the seats, sell tons of swag; it would be a good business decision.

  72. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 12:47 pm

    Al-

    IF they would even consider trading him. At least 4 prospects. 2 of whom need to be elite.

    Towers likes pitching so I would have to think that one of them at least would have to be either Dellin or Manny. He might ask for both.

    Heavy price.

    Kemp is a much easier target.

  76. BIG AL June 29th, 2011 at 12:50 pm

    WCYF -

    I agree. And with Fielder on the team, you can afford to give A-Rod full days off if needed, without losing any O. Let Tex regain his 3B skills, play Fielder at 1B on occasion, and have the DH position open on those days.

  77. Tom in N.J. June 29th, 2011 at 12:50 pm

    Rob in NY-

    I know. I don’t think that they could afford another 20 million dollar+ player.

    It’s easy to say Posada’s contact is coming off the books, so that’s 13 million to play with. But it’s not.

  78. G. Love June 29th, 2011 at 12:51 pm

    It’s most likely Fielder or Kemp, not both. That said, who knows if someone buys the Dodgers with deep pockets (i.e. Cuban) and gives Kemp an extension immediately as a sign to the fans. He’s not a free agent for another year. Still, you get more for your money with him because he plays a position.

    I tend to think the Yankees pass on Fielder unless they miss the post season or get steam rolled by Boston in the playoffs.

    I do think Boras always finds that one dumb owner who will end up giving Prince more than Tex got here.

  79. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2011 at 12:52 pm

    Kruml singles to left

    Joseph deep fly to left

  80. Joe from Long Island June 29th, 2011 at 12:52 pm

    Agreed with MTU, Kemp is an easier target for 2013. He would cost just money. I think he’d be a more desirable target than Fielder, JMO.\

    Bojo – there’s a thought, about signing Beltran for next year. Because of his knee issues, he might not generate a lot of interest in the NL, for an everyday OF. But, in that role of DH/4th OF, he could do well. I don’t know if I’d go beyond one year, though.

  82. Jerkface June 29th, 2011 at 12:53 pm

    There is no way we can find room for Fielder at DH or 1B with Pujols on the team.

  83. tomingeorgia June 29th, 2011 at 12:53 pm

    Trenton, obviously

  84. blake June 29th, 2011 at 12:53 pm

    Reyes makes a lot more sense than Fielder does. Jeter can play RF and 3rd on Alex’s DH days.

  85. BIG AL June 29th, 2011 at 12:54 pm

    MTU -

    I know you’re right, but, as we’ve seen in the past, just because Kemp will be an FA, doesn’t mean he’ll sign with us. If that happens, and we then go after JU, his asking price will go up even higher.

    I love our prospects, as you do, but that’s all they are, unproven talent vs. a known talent.

    Given some stories about Kemp’s attitude at times, I’d still prefer JU to Kemp.

  86. G. Love June 29th, 2011 at 12:55 pm

    I say we sign Pujols and Fielder. Put one at DH and one in RF in a lawn chair and just tell Grandy and Gardner they have to cover the entire OF. With proper advance scouting and positioning the 2 of them can easily do it.

    Hughes strutting his stuff.

    OK Reggie. OK Stick. OK Newman. OK Cash. It’s alright to stop saying wow.

    Even though I can’t blame ya’.

    ;)

  90. m June 29th, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    I saw someone say they’d be surprised if the Red Sox signed Fielder because they need pitching. That’s a good point. Anyone know their system enough to tell us if there are any internal candidates for next year? Any thoughts who they’d sign in FA?

    Raise your hand if you want to see the Red Sox be forced into another Lackey type of commitment.

    Romine throws out the batter.

    AL – true, we don’t have a guarantee that Kemp would want to come to the Bronx. But, I’m not sure he would have the same issues as Lee had. As far as Upton goes, I wonder if Cash already has an idea of what Towers would want. If he does, that might affect some of the moves that Cash makes.

    Great news on Hughes…..nice to see.

    I would have to see what Pujols is going to cost…..which is still unclear. Im not paying 200+ million again for a guy that’s best years are likely behind them. Pujols could be starting a slow decline for all we know.

  96. CountryClub June 29th, 2011 at 12:58 pm

    By David Schoenfield

    One of the most unheralded performers of the season has been Yankees reliever David Robertson, who is 1-0 with a 1.15 ERA and 15 holds. Wonder how the Yankees feel now about that $35 million they gave Rafael Soriano. Most impressively, Robertson is striking out 14.4 batters per nine innings. Only nine times has a pitcher (minimum of 50 innings pitched) fanned 14 or more per nine innings.

  98. BoJo June 29th, 2011 at 12:59 pm

    The potential realignment and scheduling will have a major impact on strategy for pursuing players. If they move Houston to AL and go with a balanced schedule, and DON’T implement DH rule universally…then half of the games played will be without a DH. If that scenario happens, DHs will decrease in value by about half. Since it is one scenario being kicked about, we just have to wait and see.

  99. m June 29th, 2011 at 12:59 pm

    I’m not sure how much we’ve heard about Reyes’ attitude is real or manufactured by the media.

    But before Cashman (should he still be here) hands out a huge contract to a player, he’ll do his due diligence. You know, asking around about what kind of teammate he is. Not having a PI follow him around like Boston did with Crawford. :P

    Did Hughes find the curveball he left at Trenton a few years ago? That would be awesome.

  106. Rob_NY June 29th, 2011 at 1:01 pm

    Tom — I agree. i thought you were pointing to the 153 number to show the Yanks could/should afford another high priced veteran.

    The Prince situation doesn’t much relate to Matt Holliday. Holliday was an athletic outfielder who would remain at his position. Holliday is relatively underpaid at 17m per. Fielder is going to want big time dollars and offers no roster flexibility and no real position on the Yankees. Sure, he’s a really good hitter but on this team he doesn’t seem to make much sense to me.

  107. Yankee Trader June 29th, 2011 at 1:01 pm

    I’m able to get audio of the Trenton game on New Hampshire radio station site-wgiram.com

    Hughes lost no hitter in 4th but Romine threw out baserunner trying to score, so Hughes has faced minimum. Don’t know his pitch count yet. 5 strikeouts.

    I agree. And with Fielder on the team, you can afford to give A-Rod full days off if needed, without losing any O. Let Tex regain his 3B skills, play Fielder at 1B on occasion, and have the DH position open on those days.

    ***************

    All good points. He’s just too good to pass up, you make it work. Another point is that he helps us get younger. The Sux signed two 29 year-olds in A-Gon and Crawford and I love a 27 year old Fielder – in a position where his injury potential would be minimized.

    Granderson
    Teixeira
    A-Rod
    Cano
    Fielder

    As the major league scout was quoted in Harper’s article today:

    “Man, I’d hate to think how many he could hit in this bandbox,” the scout said. “If I’m the Yankees, he’s the guy I sign, even with (Mark) Teixeira here. Put Fielder in this lineup as the DH and they might never lose.”

    Fielder makes very little sense for the Yankees……they are already far and away the leaders for homers in mlb.

    He gives them no flexibility and doesn’t pay a premium position. If you’re going to do something this winter then sign Reyes and lock up SS for 5-6 years ……otherwise save the cash and go nuts in the winter of 2012 when Cole Hamels and Matt Kemp will be available.

    Bojo – that’s a good point about the schedule. Because it might diminish the value of DHs, it might be a sticking point with the Players’ Association.

    Tying up big dollars on a slugger, who might not be able to play a position, and affect roster moves for years to come….starting to sound like the Giambino.

    Wonder if Fielder has a thong………

  121. Bret The Hitman June 29th, 2011 at 1:07 pm

    Blake,

    I agree that Jose Reyes makes more sense than Prince Fielder. This team needs another contact hitter and Reyes is a career .290 guy who can challenge for batting titles. We have locked up two elite sluggers to colossal contracts.

    AROD and TEX do more than their fair share of launching HR’s.

    I think Prince Fielder is somewhat redundant but he’s tremendously talented so the Yankees will be open to him along with Reyes.

    Boston will be targeting those same two players so it could get interesting.

    They have Ortiz, Papelbon, Cameron and Scutaro coming off the books. Am I missing someone?

    I think Boston prefers Fielder to be a long-term replacement for Papi. They completed their speedster deal with Carl Crawford so Reyes is not as enticing for them as a guy who could murder in Yankees Stadium.

  122. m June 29th, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    tomingeorgia,

    I’m glad you’re on, since you’re the resident southern cook.

    I want to try and make mac and cheese korokke (croquettes). Have you made them before? It sounds pretty simple, but I want to know if they’re as delicious as I’ve heard.

  123. G-C June 29th, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    A 27 year old fielder with his body is basically a 30 or 31 year old.

    I don’t look at Prince Fielder and think of him as a “young stud.”

    I’d be shocked if you could look through the baseball annals and find anyone with that body type that really mashed into his 30s. His father and Mo Vaughn are pretty good examples.

    This idea of the Yankees signing him is frankly pretty ridiculous. They aren’t going to give someone 150 million dollars to be a DH when they pretty much already have about 50 million committed to 2 guys who basically should be DHing already on the roster (the left side of the infield).

  124. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2011 at 1:09 pm

    My pleasure, AL.

    Trader, Hughes is at 39 pitches

  125. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 1:09 pm

    YT-

    It’s easy to miss the forest for the trees with Hughes.

    His development has sometimes been derailed by freak injuries and over thinking.

    People seem to forget how good this kid can be.

    He has an elite FB with exceptional command, has flashed a devasting CB in the past, and is working on a serviceable CU.

    That talent lead him to almost pitch a no-no early against a tough hitting Texas team.

    He was considered an All star last year. Many hitters commenting on his stuf said it was
    exceptional and they simply did not enjoy facing him.

    That is why I am a believer because, baring bad health, Hughes is very talented.

    That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

    Not only that Pat M. say he’s great and he’s ALWAYS right.

    :)

    I think it might become a premium position pretty quickly if Fielder hits 40 home runs, driving in 120 with a .400 OBP and a 1.000 OPS like he is capable of doing at Yankee Stadium.

  144. G-C June 29th, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    WCYF,

    The Yankees didn’t have any interest in Crawford, and rightfully so. They probably have a better player in LF for hundreds of millions less.

    Nor did they make a serious play for Holliday. I can understand the argument that they should of, but again, I would prefer Gardner’s contributions for the minimum.

  145. m June 29th, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    Did we target Crawford?

    Lee’s the only FA in recent memory that we “lost out” on.

    If Kemp’s not around, then you go to plan B, plan C, etc. That’s if Kemp is plan A.

    I get that Fielder would be a great hitter in YS, but that’s about the only positive for signing him. Lots of reasons not to.

  146. pat June 29th, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    “….with Fielder on the team, you can afford to give A-Rod full days off if needed, without losing any O. Let Tex regain his 3B skills, play Fielder at 1B on occasion, and have the DH position open on those days.”

    You don’t lose O but you lose D by weakening yourself at 2 infield positions for at least 5 years.

    There are currently 14 AL teams and 16 NL teams. With the current system, more than half of games played have no DH. If the Astros move to the AL, then you’ll have one more team that needs a DH.

    How does this decrease the value of DHs by 50%?

  153. West Coast Yankee Fan June 29th, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    I believe we didn’t pursue Holliday because we knew Crawford would be available. The organization always liked Crawford and many assumed he would be in a Yankee uniform in 2011. Gardner played well enough in management’s eyes to change their thinking on that. That’s how I see it.

  154. Bret The Hitman June 29th, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    Sox have 54.25 million coming off the books. If they want to, they can lock up BOTH Prince Fielder and Jose Reyes long-term. They have DiceK coming off the books after 2012. They have young cost-controlled players like Kalish, Reddick and Lowrie to fill spots themselves or for trades to fill spots.

    “Balanced schedule means you play a lot more interleague games?”

    No, balanced schedule means you play more games against teams in your league but not in your division.

    And half of the interleague games are played with a DH at AL ballparks.

  164. blake June 29th, 2011 at 1:25 pm

    Wcyf,

    Im not giving Fielder 200 million dollars to put up those numbers for 2-3 years while not playing a position. Alex is going to have to move to DH sometime before his contract ends…..and the more days he gets there in the mean time will probably help keep him healthy……not saying I wouldn’t like to see him hit in YS but I think those funds can be allocated in other ways that would make the team better.

  165. Erin June 29th, 2011 at 1:25 pm

    eboland11 Hughes: 54 pitches — 41 strikes — through five. His command is “much better,” one scout said, than Hughes’ previous start in New Britain

  166. m June 29th, 2011 at 1:25 pm

    Gotcha, WCYF.

    Holliday has not cost us imo. Crawford can rot in LF at Fenway. There’s always going to be a player available. I don’t want to lock up another $100M, which can be used on a more athletic player that can provide greater all-around value.

  167. Jerkface June 29th, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    The Yankees may have been targeting Crawford before the offseason, but they didn’t pursue him in the actual offseason. Thus they didnt miss out on him.

  168. upstate kate June 29th, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    I think it would be a mistake to think that Fielder would have a seamless transition to DH…look at the trouble Po had. Or, look at the year Adam Dunn is having. His current avg is .173, w/ 7 HR

    Jose Reyes.

  170. Nick in SF June 29th, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    The season-long interleague play would be one interleague series at all times because you would have an odd number of teams in each league. But half of those games would be in AL ballparks, with DHs.

  171. Joe from Long Island June 29th, 2011 at 1:27 pm

    It’s nice that Phil’s slicing thru the hitters at Trenton, but they are AA hitters. More importantly, to me, is how he’s commanding his stuff. From the reports here, it looks like he’s doing that.

  172. blake June 29th, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    The thing to remember when discussing how much money the Sox have coming off is that they have to replace those players or re-sign them. The money doesn’t really come off unless you don’t have to replace the player or can do so cheaply. They can replace Scutero with Iglesias…..but everybody else will need to be either re-signed or replaced. They will need a DH, a RFer, bullpen help, and probably a starter as well.

  173. Howard June 29th, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    I actually think a major move will be made for Michael Young, given that he still has this year and next year, and I think Texas moves him for expiring players/prospects. It’s no secret that he was disgruntled with his role, despite his damage control after the fact.

    1 TSP ONION JUICE (I use dried onion flakes, maybe a couple of TBSPS)
    1 CUP THICK WHITE SAUCE (ROUX)

    Cook macaroni, run through a food processor until chopped. Add bacon and parsley.
    Add cheese and onion (juice or flakes) to the white sauce and blend with the macaroni mixture.
    Spread out on a platter until cool, shape into croquettes and fry in deep hot fat (365-380 degrees for 3 to 5 minutes. Drain.

    Delicious, clogged arteries guaranteed!

    “The potential realignment and scheduling will have a major impact on strategy for pursuing players. If they move Houston to AL and go with a balanced schedule, and DON’T implement DH rule universally…then half of the games played will be without a DH. If that scenario happens, DHs will decrease in value by about half.”

    There are currently 14 AL teams and 16 NL teams. With the current system, more than half of games played have no DH. If the Astros move to the AL, then you’ll have one more team that needs a DH.

    How does this decrease the value of DHs by 50%?
    __________
    81 games at home–81 on road…half of 81 on road would be NL WITH no DH…You are right…decrease by 25%

  180. Howard June 29th, 2011 at 1:31 pm

    That’s what I was thinking, Blake.
    I think they’re going to go with Bard/Jenks in Papelbons spot, from what I’ve read. They’re also going to have to start paying Ellsbury soon (Boras + arbitration), which makes me think that if they’re going to move for Reyes, it’ll be a package around Ellsbury.

  181. blake June 29th, 2011 at 1:31 pm

    The Yanks passed on Holliday because they earmarked that money for Cliff Lee and because they knew Crawford would be there if Gardner was a disaster.

  182. Bret The Hitman June 29th, 2011 at 1:31 pm

    Blake,

    They can replace Scutaro with Iglesias OR Lowrie and trade off the odd man out to fill other needs cheaply. They can fill RF with a role player like Reddick or Kalish or have both compete. The core of that team and nearly all their top talent is locked up to team friendly deals or is cost controlled: Beckett, Lester, Youkilis, Pedroia, Ellsbury.

    We’re talking about 54 million bux.

  183. SoS June 29th, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    Howard,
    I like your thinking. Plus hes best friends with Alex. That would be a great player to get. Can play the field when anyone needs a day off or time at dh.

  184. austinmac June 29th, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    I wouldn’t bet Kemp will be available after 2012. The Dodgers will likely have a new owner by then. I very much doubt the new owner will want one of his first acts to be losing one of their draws.

    I also very much doubt the Yankees will show any interest in Reyes, Fielder or Pujols. They may have interest in Wilson. Offensive additions will have to come via trades, if at all.

  185. comet June 29th, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    Hey Kate:

    Hope all is well with you!

  186. Betsy June 29th, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    MTU, IMO, the curve is a HUGE deal for Phil. He’s thrown such a good one in the past, but it’s so inconsistent for him. If he can ever get it to be just good or very good, even if it’s not plus, that would be terrific. His cutter can be good as well, but he shouldn’t overdo it. If he’d just work at throwing a decent change, and it doesn’t have to be great, he’d be much better off.

    Clearly his stuff is good and his arm is sound- very good news.

  187. kd June 29th, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    i doubt very strongly that the red sox would go after reyes. they would have to admit to themselves that jose iglesias is not going to be a star in bigs, theo would never do that. never mind the fact that he’s hitting something like 220 in aaa, but he’s a red sox so they’re already working on his cooperstown plaque.

    prince in pinstripes is nice to speculate, but it’s pretty unlikely. my guess is he ends up an angel. don’t they have a lot of money coming off the books?

  188. austinmac June 29th, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    Howard,

    I like Michael Young, but wouldn’t his role on the Yankees be the same one he doesn’t like on the Rangers–that is, DH or utility?

  189. Bret The Hitman June 29th, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    Why would the Sox go with a player hitting .220 in AAA?

  190. Rob_NY June 29th, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    “The season-long interleague play would be one interleague series at all times because you would have an odd number of teams in each league. But half of those games would be in AL ballparks, with DHs.”

    Plus, an NL team would stop playing most of it’s games in NL parks without a DH.

  191. Erin June 29th, 2011 at 1:35 pm

    DRob30 Great blog thanks for the interview. RT @BleednYankeeBlu: @drob30 EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: HIGH SOCKS FOR HOPE http://t.co/SITYajC

    tomingeorgia,

    OMG, that looks so complicated! Most recipes just say to chill left over mac and cheese. Scoop, dredge in flour, dip in egg wash, roll in panko. Fry. Consume. :)

    But, if I make it from scratch I’ll try it. And add a little hot sauce to the white sauce.

    WCYF,

    Pujols resigns with St. Louis, but at a much smaller figure than he had hoped. Fielder goes to Boston to replace Big Poopi. If you could get the years down to 5-6, you might convince me. But he’s too big to commit to much longer.

  193. Nick in SF June 29th, 2011 at 1:35 pm

    “81 games at home–81 on road…half of 81 on road would be NL WITH no DH…You are right…decrease by 25%”

    Please show your math, I don’t understand.

    The majority of games — home and road — that AL teams would play would be against each other, with both teams using a DH.

    Half of all interleague games would be played in AL parks, with the DH.

    Moving the Astros to the AL would not increase the number of total games played without a DH, would it?

  194. Erin June 29th, 2011 at 1:35 pm

    jnorris427 Reggie is on his phone, so we’ll call him Mr. Talktober. #trytheveal

  195. Howard June 29th, 2011 at 1:36 pm

    I like your thinking. Plus hes best friends with Alex. That would be a great player to get. Can play the field when anyone needs a day off or time at dh.

    I like the idea too, but I also think he fills a major role with the Sox as well – especially next year when they’re probably not going to sign Fat Ortiz. Letting Ortiz go, and only being on the hook for Young’s ’12 contract is beneficial to them as well. Plus, they could easily move Ortiz for Young now, and their lineup would be more balance. Texas would jump at that today, and we all know that Boston’s FO isn’t against exhibiting.
    I would love for Young to be here though.

  196. Jerkface June 29th, 2011 at 1:36 pm

    No, balanced schedule means you play more games against teams in your league but not in your division.

    And half of the interleague games are played with a DH at AL ballparks.

    In all balanced schedule talks MLB adds a team to the AL and has 15 in each league, which means that there will be 1 interleague series at all times. The amount of interleague games will increase I’m pretty sure but I can’t find any explanations of the the system. De-valuing by half would probably be pretty strong but right now the Yankees only play 9 interleague games on the road. I think that increases with a balanced schedule.

  197. Bret The Hitman June 29th, 2011 at 1:37 pm

    m,

    And where do you see Jose Reyes going?

    San Francisco?

  198. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2011 at 1:37 pm

    top of 6th for Hughes

    strikeout looking on fastball

    lineout to 2nd base

    strikeout swinging

    18 pitches, 7 balls, 11 strikes

    3-0 Trenton middle of the 6th inning

  199. m June 29th, 2011 at 1:37 pm

    The Sox can sign both Fielder and Reyes.

    Reyes for sure. I can picture him there. He and the laser show can get lockers next to each other.

    Am I mistaken or did Pedroia say he wanted to hit 20 HR this year? Or was that last year?

  200. Tom in N.J. June 29th, 2011 at 1:37 pm

    Cots has about 37 million coming of the Red Sox payroll this offseason.

  201. SoS June 29th, 2011 at 1:37 pm

    I cant see Reyes going anywhere. David Wright probably gets moved to use the money on Jose. The Mets need someone to fill those seats. Plus I dont understand how no one is hesitant in signing him being that hes had some injuries in the recent past.

  202. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2011 at 1:37 pm

    Reggie Jackson on radio broadcast

  203. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    Betsy-

    It’s looking good today.

    He picked the right day to show off with all the brass in attendance.

    Next start at SWB he takes the next step.

    If that goes well he’s NYC bound.

    :)

  204. tomingeorgia June 29th, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    m,

    No, it’s really easy. Hot sauce is a good idea. I’ve used Cayenne pepper.

  205. Howard June 29th, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    austinmac, I agree but I think that in NY, he’s going to see more time in the field (especially SS). Maybe I’m wrong, but when I see what’s out there, I see him going to one of the AL teams this year. I just hope it’s us, and not Boston

  206. BoJo June 29th, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    If MLB takes over the Dodgers, how long will it really take to sell them? Took a while for the Texas deal to close, and that was with an owner looking to sell. Took some time before Washington found a buyer too IIRC.

    If MLB runs the franchise through 2012, Kemp will go to FA to test market.

  207. BIG AL June 29th, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    I’d love to have Michael Young, plays all the IF positions, except 1B, can DH, and is a very good hitter.

    I can’t see the Rangers trading with the Yankees though, not after the Lee thing, they have too much dislike for the Yankees to be of any help.

    Too bad, Young would be a perfect fit here.

  208. Tom in N.J. June 29th, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    If I were the Mets, I’d trade both Wright and Reyes.

  209. m June 29th, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    SoS,

    No way. Reyes is going to cash in. Highest bidder wins. I’m hearing separate rumors of Pau for Love and Odom for Love. I love Pau, but I might let him go before Odom.

    Michael Young for 1-2 years as DH/IF utility guy would be smart.

  210. Betsy June 29th, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    MTU, yep, lol. A good Phil is going to overmatch minor leaguers – and today he’s very good.

  211. Bret The Hitman June 29th, 2011 at 1:42 pm

    T-Wolves would be crazy to trade Love for ANYBODY right now.

  212. blake June 29th, 2011 at 1:42 pm

    Bret,

    They’ll have to reinvest at lot of that money coming off just to field a team……

  213. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2011 at 1:42 pm

    bottom of the 6th inning

    Lyerly flyout to left

    Pirela popup to 3rd base

    Mack groundout to 2nd

    Hughes should be finished after 72 pitches

  214. m June 29th, 2011 at 1:43 pm

    I don’t know. Minny might want to trade Love for a point guard. :)

  215. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 1:43 pm

    Betsy-

    A good Phil will overmatch anyone.

    Can’t wait to see it again.

  216. blake June 29th, 2011 at 1:44 pm

    Reyes will be in a new uni next year……he’s already told the Mets he wouldn’t negociate with them during the season. That’s code for Ill come back if you pay me the most money on the open market and the Mets can’t afford to do that right now.

  217. SoS June 29th, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    mel,
    I can see Pau being the first to go. I think something happened between him and kobe this last postseason. I think they will trade him away to clear the locker room air. Love would be a HUGE get. Im surprised they wont get him with a Walton for Love straight up being the Lakers and all.

  218. blake June 29th, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    The Mets should trade everybody and start over but Wilpon can’t do that because him paying back his loan rides on fans coming to the ballpark.

  219. Howard June 29th, 2011 at 1:46 pm

    I think Reyes or Fielder one will be in a Nationals uniform next year, and I think it’ll be Reyes, as he’s already familiar with the pitchers in that division, and would run wild on gap shots in DC.

  220. blake June 29th, 2011 at 1:46 pm

    Sounds.like Hughes coukd be a successful SWB start away from returning to NY.

  221. Jerkface June 29th, 2011 at 1:48 pm

    Sounds.like Hughes coukd be a successful SWB start away from returning to NY.

    If this game is any indication, I think they don’t bother.

  222. Bret The Hitman June 29th, 2011 at 1:48 pm

    Blake, I don’t see it.

    1b-Adrian Gonzalez
    2b-Dustin Pedroia
    3b-Kevin Youkilis
    lf-Carl Crawford
    cf-Jacoby Ellsbury
    rf-Reddick/Kalish

    Closer-Bard

    That leaves 54 million for a shortstop (Reyes) and a DH to replace Papi long term (Fielder).

    Plus they’d have Iglesias and Lowrie as trade chips.

  223. BIG AL June 29th, 2011 at 1:48 pm

    Later folks, enjoy the day and game.

  224. Bret The Hitman June 29th, 2011 at 1:49 pm

    not to mention 10 mil for DiceK coming off the books after 2012.

  225. SoS June 29th, 2011 at 1:49 pm

    Last batter for Hughes?

  226. Nick in SF June 29th, 2011 at 1:50 pm

    Jerkface, as I understand it, the current unbalanced schedule means that, in order to play interleague games, teams play fewer games again non-division teams in their own leagues.

    So we still play the Red Sox and Showaltimore 18 times a year but see teams from the AL Central and West fewer times so that we can play interleague games.

    I don’t think the rest of the AL will accept too many fewer Yankees/Red Sox visits so they can see the Marlins and Pirates more often. So who knows what a more balanced schedule while keeping interleague games will mean.

    But as to the DH question, there are currently 14 teams that have to use a DH in most of their games and that number increases to 15 if the Astros move over to the AL, while the number of teams that do not use a Dh would decrease.

    So again, how does this lower the value of DHs?

  227. Jerkface June 29th, 2011 at 1:51 pm

    If Hughes is tiring by this point then he needs at least another start. My previous statement was based on him finishing strong :|

  228. kd June 29th, 2011 at 1:51 pm

    this is really good news on phil. he may be just what the doctor ordered to stabilize the rotation

  229. m June 29th, 2011 at 1:51 pm

    Phil done after 6.1 IP. 3 Hits, 8 K.

  230. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 1:53 pm

    popup to 1st base

    End of the day for Hughes

    About 87 pitches.

  232. jacksquat June 29th, 2011 at 1:53 pm

    Reyes is out of the question unless Jeter decides to retire, which I think is very unlikely.

  233. Jerkface June 29th, 2011 at 1:54 pm

    Jerkface, as I understand it, the current unbalanced schedule means that, in order to play interleague games, teams play fewer games again non-division teams in their own leagues.

    So we still play the Red Sox and Showaltimore 18 times a year but see teams from the AL Central and West fewer times so that we can play interleague games.

    So again, how does this lower the value of DHs?

    Nick, in a balanced schedule you play every team the same number of times. This does decrease the amount of games that the Orioles play the Yankees and so on, and increases the number of away games that you play against NL teams. For example, teams might end up playing 40 interleague games, which doubles the number of games you play without a DH.

  234. m June 29th, 2011 at 1:54 pm

    Ground Rule Double.

  235. Howard June 29th, 2011 at 1:54 pm

    Brett:
    That’s exactly why I think Young makes sense there.

    He replaces Papi next year, balances that lineup, same money (nearly) as Ortiz, and Young can play SS to help their prospect along next year. That move actually makes sense for both Boston and Texas right now and going forward. I can’t really see either team jumping at the chance to help the other, however, but it wouldn’t surprise anyone here. Plus Ortiz would hit 25HR the second half in Arlington with Hamilton and Beltre around him.

  236. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2011 at 1:55 pm

    Ground rule double scores 1 run (Hughes)

  237. SoS June 29th, 2011 at 1:55 pm

    18 games vs. divisional teams is a bit much. Its become too watered down and al east is just beating each other up while the other weak divisions have lay down teams to beat.
    Why not kick out the pitcher hitting and have both leagues DH already.

  238. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 1:56 pm

    OK. So the relief pitcher couldn’t handle the inherited runners.

  239. Yankee Trader June 29th, 2011 at 1:56 pm

    Watched Hughes from 5th inning on. very good curveball and used the high strike to get some strikeouts.Pitching in the 7th the 1st batter hit a single and Hughes now pitching from the stretch is having trouble with location. Now that he’s been taken out with runners on 1st and 2nd I think they should give him his next shot at SWB and work on his delivery from the stretch.

  240. Howard June 29th, 2011 at 1:56 pm

    I be happy in the sense that Ortiz is no longer going to be in their lineup, but not happy because they have a more competent player all around than him.

  241. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    Hughes threw fastballs, curves, changeups, and slider/cutters

  242. blake June 29th, 2011 at 1:58 pm

    Bret,

    They are at 127 million for 2012 now….adding 54 million to that puts them at 181 (above the luxury tax threshold ) and that’s without factoring in arb raises, adressing the pen, RF, and Rotation…….they could do it…..but they’d probably have to push close or over 200 million to.do so.

  243. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2011 at 1:58 pm

    Inning over. Hughes gives up just the 1 run

  244. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 1:58 pm

    YT-

    I would say that was a terrific outing. What you are talking about is small potatoes.

  245. LGY June 29th, 2011 at 2:00 pm

    If pitching wins championships as I’ve been told many times on here, why would the Yanks spend much money on a DH?

  246. Nick in SF June 29th, 2011 at 2:00 pm

    Yes, but is it realistic to think that they’re going in impliment an MLB-wide balanced schedule in which the Yankees play the Padres as often as they play the Red Sox? Or even as often as they play the Royals? I don’t think so.

    Plus, if you double the games that Yanks play without a DH, you’re also doubling the games that NL teams play with a DH.

  247. SoS June 29th, 2011 at 2:00 pm

    In other news. Rays down 3-2 in the top of the 7th. I cant believe theyv hung around this long after losing all those players to free agency. Are they for real or an Orioles team in Rays clothing?

  248. m June 29th, 2011 at 2:00 pm

    18 division games is a bit much. I think they should re-align so there are equal divisions. Keep the non-DH in the senior league from now. And then have even scheduling within each league.

    But I can’t see playing every team in both leagues an even amount of times. The NBA does it well with playing each team 4 times within the east or the west, and 2 times each for teams on the other side. But you can’t do that in baseball.

    Maybe a happy medium, but please don’t increase interleague. At least not significantly.

  249. Sigmund June 29th, 2011 at 2:00 pm

    Ugh. I’ve said this before — if you’re a true Yankees fan, like I am, please STOP voting for Yankees for the All-Star team. The very last thing a player needs, in the midst of a marathon season, is to take another plane ride, stay in another hotel, play another game, and risk injury. The game is meaningless (WS home-field advantage aside). I will send in a few dozen more ballots filled with all Red Sox players, and I implore all of you to do the same. Too late for this year, but maybe next year we can have the ultimate Yankees’ fan All-Star line-up: All players from the American League East except zero Yankees.

  250. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 2:00 pm

  251. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2011 at 2:01 pm

    Cashman’s review should be interesting.

    Since the ASB is coming up, I’d give Hughes the one AAA start to stay on target. He’d pitch on third.

  252. Yankee Trader June 29th, 2011 at 2:02 pm

    GB-

    What do you think? It didn’t look like he was tiring in the 7th. It looked like he was uncomfortable pitching from the stretch, at one point three straight pitches low and away. Work on it, give him another start in SWB and see if he’s ready. Personally I wished they had left him in to see how he get’s out of trouble, but he probably reached his alloted pitch count. he was averaging 12 pitches/inning thru the 1st 6.

  253. Jerkface June 29th, 2011 at 2:03 pm

    Yes, but is it realistic to think that they’re going in impliment an MLB-wide balanced schedule in which the Yankees play the Padres as often as they play the Red Sox? Or even as often as they play the Royals? I don’t think so.

    Plus, if you double the games that Yanks play without a DH, you’re also doubling the games that NL teams play with a DH.

    Yes Nick, but those NL teams won’t be signing DH players. That is what devalues the DH. You increase the amount of games in which DH players can’t play. It doesn’t matter if the NL has more games with a DH because those teams aren’t signing players to sit on the bench for the other 130 games. And if the MLB moves to 15 team leagues and a balanced schedule they will reduce the amount of games the Yankees play against whoever, and money lost there will be gained when the Yankees play other popular teams like SF and whoever.

  254. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 2:03 pm

    GB-

    If everything stays on track in his next start at SWB why not ?

  255. BoJo June 29th, 2011 at 2:03 pm

    Please show your math, I don’t understand.
    _______
    One of the formats I heard discussed was a pure balanced schedule, with teams playing every other team an equal number of times…home and away.

    You later said: “So who knows what a more balanced schedule while keeping interleague games will mean.”

    That was my point. The change will have some impact–yet to be determined–and that it will affect the DH value if it decreases the number of games a DH is used.

  256. Bret The Hitman June 29th, 2011 at 2:05 pm

    Blake,

    How did you get to 200 million? They have 54 million coming off the books and cost-controlled replacements waiting outside of a combo Reyes-Fielder signing. Arb raises? They have 10 million for DiceK coming off the books to take care of some of that.

    I think they will at the very least sign one of Prince Fielder or Jose Reyes.

    If they can get Michael Young for half the cost of Fielder, they’re definitely a threat to sign Jose Reyes.

  257. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 2:05 pm

    GB-

    What can Cash say except that Phil was great ?

    The velocity was there. The command of the FB was there. The velo lasted late into the game. He was efficient.

    He threw some excellent curves and worked on his other secondary pitches.

    End of story.

    ;)

    Let’s hope he isn’t scared to/remembers how to do it for the big team in a couple weeks.

  259. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2011 at 2:06 pm

    Bottom of the 7th, trenton 3-1

    Kruml triple

    Joseph groundout to 2nd

    Romine strikeout

    Johnson high drive to right, caught on a jumping catch against the wall

    3-1 Trenton after 7 innings

  260. BoJo June 29th, 2011 at 2:07 pm

    As for what is realistic in terms of what format will be adopted, that is something that is hard to call. It seems that Selig likes the concept of parity, and giving all teams the chance to raise gates with home games versus the Yankees and Red Sox might be something he pushes for.

    Then it gets into politics and deal making, and who really knows what the owners will vote for? That was my point.

  261. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2011 at 2:07 pm

    MTU, might as well, rather than have him sit for 9-10 days

  262. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 2:08 pm

    Howard-

    You’re kidding, right ?

  263. SoS June 29th, 2011 at 2:08 pm

    Can Kruml give Gardner a run for his money on a foot race? He was flying on that triple.

  264. Nick in SF June 29th, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    OK, I guess I understand the theory, at least.

    I think the premise is unrealistic and the logic somewhat dubious, however.

  265. BoJo June 29th, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    I like what I see in Hall…could he possibly be a call up for pen as our second LOOGY?

    Bret The Hitman June 29th, 2011 at 2:05 pm
    Blake,

    How did you get to 200 million? They have 54 million coming off the books and cost-controlled replacements waiting outside of a combo Reyes-Fielder signing. Arb raises? They have 10 million for DiceK coming off the books to take care of some of that.

    I think they will at the very least sign one of Prince Fielder or Jose Reyes.

    If they can get Michael Young for half the cost of Fielder, they’re definitely a threat to sign Jose Reyes.

    And where is Reyes going to play? Do you really think the Yankees will move Jeter off SS as early as next year?

    Not happening.

  267. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 2:10 pm

    GB-

    Of course provided there are no setbacks at AAA.

    And I don’t expect any.

    Who is the opponent ?

    _________
    I hope it is…I’m not in favor of it. But it reflects one model I heard or read about…and illustrates the impact the change can have on role of DH.

  269. Jerkface June 29th, 2011 at 2:11 pm

    I think the premise is unrealistic and the logic somewhat dubious, however.

    Its whats being discussed right now in MLB, how is it unrealistic or dubious?

  270. Howard June 29th, 2011 at 2:11 pm

    I think they will at the very least sign one of Prince Fielder or Jose Reyes..

    Not me. I think neither of them are on the radar for Boston. I think Boston either goes with their prospect, or trades him and signs Rollins.
    And they’re certainly not going to sign Fielder because they just gave all that money to AGon, who plays everyday. Fielder will be signed to be a DH for the second part of his contract, but I don’t think it’ll be Boston or NY doing the contracting.

  271. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2011 at 2:12 pm

    Trader, can’t say about his body laguage, but, the 7th inning hit, jackson says that it was somewhat misplayed when he took a step back and then came in.

    From the sound of hit, the two walks were all on close pitches throughout those at bats. I can only remember them talking about pitches in the dirt maybe 3 times. Sounds like he kept the speed, and hopefully the movement. That’s as important as the results, I’d think.

  272. Yankee Trader June 29th, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    MTU-

    What was his velocity? No reportin by Trenton or New hampshire announcers. I did notice he got some strikeouts on the high fastball, the same pitch that made him a successful reliever in 2009 and 1st half of 2010.

    I’d like him to pitch in SWB to Montero and then give Montero a lift to NY city while pitching to him in the bigs in his 1st outing!!

  273. I Like Inge June 29th, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    ———

    I wonder who is faster, Reyes or Gardner? I think Reyes but that would be a good race.

  274. Against All Odds June 29th, 2011 at 2:14 pm

    Mike pushing Prince again. This is reaching Mclouth/Abreu levels.

  275. Howard June 29th, 2011 at 2:15 pm

    Howard-

    You?re kidding, right ?

    No, I’m not. I like he had a nice start, but I will hold off on his “big comeback” until he comes back on the big squad. I’m not hating on him, I just know that his secondary stuff disappears for extended periods of time, and I think it’s becuase he loses faith in it to get MLB players out, which is understandable.
    I just hope he comes back and continues to pitch well – I’m not gonna get hung up on this start. I’m just happy he finished and isn’t hurt.

  276. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2011 at 2:16 pm

    bottom of the 8th inning

    Suttle strikeout

    Mesa hard line drive to left field

    Lyerly groundout to 3rd base

  277. Howard June 29th, 2011 at 2:17 pm

    I wonder who is faster, Reyes or Gardner? I think Reyes but that would be a good race

    I’d say Gardner in pure foot speed, but Reyes on the bases.

  278. Erin June 29th, 2011 at 2:18 pm

    New Post: Hughes goes 6.1 innings in rehab start

    :arrow:

  279. MTU June 29th, 2011 at 2:21 pm

    YT-

    I don’t know for sure but I assume that since he was still K’ing people late in the game that he must have still had a decent FB. YF will let us know for sure at some point.

    Early on he touched 95. He only had 2 walks. His command must have been good.

    He mixed in his secondary pitches to good effect.

    Everything was very positive. He had 8K’s and just a few hits surrendered.

    Yeah. That would be sweet if the came up together.

    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.
