Hernandez vs. Yankees

TIME/TV: 1:05 p.m., YES Network

WEATHER: Pretty warm here in the Bronx. Very little wind. I would say there’s no chance of a rain delay, but I learned my lesson last night.

UMPIRES: HP Hunter Wendelstedt, 1B Brian Knight, 2B Jerry Layne, 3B Bob Davidson

KERRY DID IT: According to Elias, last night the Yankees became the second team in the Modern Era to hold an opponent to one hit or less while striking out 18 or more. The only other instance was on May 6, 1998 when Kerry Wood held Houston to one hit while striking out 20.

RANDY DID IT: Also according to Elias, CC Sabathia became the fifth left-handed pitcher in the Live Ball Era — since 1920 — to allow one hit while striking out at least 14 in a game. Steve Carlton, Sandy Koufax and Warren Spann each did it once. Randy Johnson did it six times!

MARK DID IT: One more item from Elias: With Mark Teixeira hitting his 100th Yankees home run last night, the Yankees how have 37 different players with at least 100 homers in pinstripes. That’s the highest total of 100-homer players for any franchise ahead of the Tigers (33), Red Sox (28) and Giants (27).

UPDATE, 1:38 p.m.: Hughes is through two scoreless showing a 93-mph fastball. Meanwhile, baseball trade market is beginning to take shape. Apparently Colby Rasmus is heading to Toronto and Carlos Beltran is going to San Francisco.

UPDATE, 1:54 p.m.: Two-out RBI triple by Dustin Ackley has the Mariners in the lead 1-0 after the top of the third.

UPDATE, 2:38 p.m.: Good throw by Brett Gardner and tag by Russell Martin saved a run in the top of the fifth, but the Mariners still added one to pull ahead 2-0. The Yankees have gotten that run back in the bottom of the fifth on Jeter’s bases-loaded sac fly. Now it’s Granderson up with two outs and runners at the corners, Mariners leading 2-1.

UPDATE, 3:16 p.m.: Another uneven outing for Hughes — too many hits, not many runs — and now the Mariners have expanded their lead to 3-1 off the Yankees bullpen in the seventh.

UPDATE, 3:22 p.m.: Pockets of Yankee Stadium currently booing Boone Logan after he faced four hitters, and a ground ball, walk, strikeout and fly ball. The two balls put in play should have been outs — the first might have been a double play — but Robinson Cano made a bad flip and Curtis Granderson let the ball bounce out of his glove. It’s now 6-1 Mariners.

    Go Phil! Make me forget about his the Jays are probably getting Rasmus for virtually nothing :)

    Go Huuuuuuuuughes! Go Yanks!

    Go Hughes. Go Yanks.

  6. UnKnown July 27th, 2011 at 1:06 pm

    Has Posada batted as low as 8th this year yet? Serious question.

  7. Bronx Jeers July 27th, 2011 at 1:06 pm

    Unit in his day was big time nasty. Intimidating.

    Funny I saw him pitch a game in Oak which turned out to be something line his first game ever without recording a K. Tino hit 2 bombs.

    I sat behind the “Yankees Road Trip” folks and razzed em a bit. :wink:

  8. Betsy July 27th, 2011 at 1:07 pm

    I don’t get why people are upset with Cashman because the Cards traded a player who isn’t exactly Willie Mays. How does anyone know what Cash did or didn’t look into? How do we know that he didn’t look into Rasmus and the Cards didn’t ask for too much?

  9. upstate kate July 27th, 2011 at 1:07 pm

    time for a bit of lunch and some Yankee baseball…I have phaith in Phil!!

  10. Irreverent Discourse July 27th, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    Uncle Heyman is all over the trade deadline proving again why he is the most connected national baseball reporter out there.

    Actually it only proves that he has no filter and will repeat any rumor he hears in the bathroom. Sometimes without wiping.

    Could it be Nova + (pick one) Romine/Sanchez/Murphy + (pick one) Betances/Banuelos are in a pending deal for John Danks?

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

    considering who made the proposal, it seems like an underpayment to his usual offers.

  12. Pat M. July 27th, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    One thing is a certain….Phil Hughes is good for LoHud Business as he always brings a wealth of hits here….Let the debate begin

  13. GreenBeret7 July 27th, 2011 at 1:09 pm

    YankeeFem,

    has TY said anything about the Yanks changing Cody Johnson’s stance at the plate? Another homer today. Now hitting .400 with 3 doubles and 3 homers in now 9 games. Has to be the ugliest stance and hand position in baseball. He is still striking out, but, at least it’s dropped from 50% to 33% so far.

  14. blake July 27th, 2011 at 1:09 pm

    Betsy,

    We don’t….but that’s a steal for the Jays and a kinda dumb trade by the Cardinals who really don’t have a great shot at winning it all this year.

  15. Shame Spencer July 27th, 2011 at 1:10 pm

    Man I wish I was at the game instead of trapped in a gray cubicle. Sometimes, I feel like Office Space wasn’t a movie but a documentary about my life…

  16. Betsy July 27th, 2011 at 1:10 pm

    Blake, you said Cash got caught with his pants down – how do you know that?

  17. GreenBeret7 July 27th, 2011 at 1:10 pm

    UGH….Already, you can see that Hughes is lost.

  18. ac1 July 27th, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    what about ichiro in rf and swish at dh?

  19. pat July 27th, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    “For the record I really wanted Rasmus just for the potential that his Dad would come to the blog and spar with us.”

    Maybe Yankees didn’t want him for the potential that his Dad would come to the stadium and spar with K. Long like he does McGwire?

  23. CompassRosy July 27th, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    FWIW ~

    Here’s my teal two cents on why it doesn’t make sense for the M’s to trade Felix…

    Any trade involving a pitcher of his caliber would demand major league proven talent in return – and a LOT of it (not necessarily in terms of quantity but definitely quality). The M’s are rebuilding (that is a fact known from the start of ST), that they were able to compete a bit in May and June was a tribute to their pitching staff. A rebuilding team isn’t necessarily in a position to acquire top notch veteran talent (at least not in the middle of a season where it is apparent they are going nowhere fast). Their top priority is to assess the talent they have – bring up the kids who are excelling in the minors and see what you’ve really got – in order to determine what they need going forward and how best to get it – who has value in trade, who adds value to the team.

    Some have mentioned teams don’t usually build around pitching. Well, that may be true or not, I don’t really know. What I do know is that Safeco Field is a pitcher’s park and that has to be considered as the rebuilding progresses. The strength of this team (despite their blip on this road trip) is pitching. IMO – you find ways to strengthen your weaknesses without weakening your strengths. You find a way to keep Felix and Michael (25 and 22 respectively) at the top of your rotation while getting creative in improving the offense. You don’t flush top notch pitching for veterans that really aren’t going to make a difference or unproven minor league talent.

    Enjoy the game!

  24. ac1 July 27th, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    Hughes has some life early on the fastball.

    Hughes is hitting 92-93 consistently in the first….
    Small battles…

  31. J. Alfred Prufrock July 27th, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    Hughes not messing around today, working fast.

  32. GreenBeret7 July 27th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    Paul O’Neill….you didn’t just say that Hughes wants to throw up, did you? That only gives the haters something to spin into ugly.

  33. G-C July 27th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    Excellent!

  34. Ghost of Steinbrenner July 27th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    I want to add my 2 cents! If Phil “Franchise” doesn’t pitch at least 6-7 innings of 2 runs or less against this team he’s out of here!

  35. Shame Spencer July 27th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    G-C, its so frustrating! I’m sorry its happening to other people too. I can’t even click reload and have it fix itself. I have to go back to the main page and go back into the thread because I can’t even just copy and paste the thread link without it going right back to an add.

  36. yankeefeminista July 27th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    Unknown, Posada 3G batting 8th

  37. blake July 27th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    Betsy,

    Because I saw him…..he had spiderman undies ;) just appears that way. Maybe he talked to them…..I don’t know.

  38. Pat M. July 27th, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    3 down, 24 to go Phillip

  39. Ghost of Steinbrenner July 27th, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    Good first inning!

  40. blake July 27th, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    GB, no she hasn’t said anything about Cody, but I will ask her.

  42. mick July 27th, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    phil does not look sharp to me.

  43. J. Alfred Prufrock July 27th, 2011 at 1:16 pm

    C’mon Brett, lets give Phil some runs to work with.

  44. Mike Ri July 27th, 2011 at 1:16 pm

    The Cardinals will send Rasmus, Trever Miller, Brian Tallet, and P.J. Walters to the Blue Jays for Jackson, Rzepczynski, Dotel, and Corey Patterson, tweets ESPN’s Buster Olney. Olney adds that Miller is then expected to be traded to the White Sox.

  45. NYYROC July 27th, 2011 at 1:16 pm

    Following on Gameday…PH has a lot of 92s & 93s in 1st.

  46. yankeefeminista July 27th, 2011 at 1:16 pm

    Shame, that happened to me yesterday (ad). No problems yet today though.

    You should lighten up a bit.

    TBrownYahoo Looks like Beltran is indeed going to SF, according to source. Logistics being worked out.

  65. Pat M. July 27th, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    Great punchout pitch by Felix

  66. Betsy July 27th, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    Blake, I think not. I don’t know what your problem is or why you even care that I think a joke about Rodney King is funny.

  67. blake July 27th, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    That’s a good deal for the Mets.

  68. Betsy July 27th, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    I mean ISN’T funny.

  69. blake July 27th, 2011 at 1:25 pm

    Betsy,

    What are you even talking about? Rodney King?

  70. SoS July 27th, 2011 at 1:25 pm

    Why is it everytime I see Felix pitch I think that hes going to walk back into the dugout with a teddy bear with the lights shut off behind him.

  71. J. Alfred Prufrock July 27th, 2011 at 1:25 pm

    Nice Tex.

  72. ac1 July 27th, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    is cano standing further from the plate than he used to?

  73. SoS July 27th, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    Pat,
    Going to a Storm game tonight. Do you still have family in the area?

  74. Captain Clutch July 27th, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    They have to be patient and make sure he is throwing strikes

  75. Ghost of Steinbrenner July 27th, 2011 at 1:27 pm

    Pat M. July 27th, 2011 at 1:23 pm
    Great punchout pitch by Felix

    Now, now Pat M. That’s inappropriate for Betsy!

  76. Betsy July 27th, 2011 at 1:27 pm

    Blake, take a look a few posts up…….I was referring to that “joke”, not to your comment about Cashman

  77. J. Alfred Prufrock July 27th, 2011 at 1:27 pm

    Made him throw some pitches, any way.

  78. Captain Clutch July 27th, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    Of course making sure he is throwing strikes goes for everyone except Cano

  79. SoS July 27th, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    24 pitches. Very good inning for the Yanks. Keep working it.

  80. mick July 27th, 2011 at 1:29 pm

  81. SoS July 27th, 2011 at 1:30 pm

  82. SoS July 27th, 2011 at 1:31 pm

    Cant we all just get along!!

  83. ac1 July 27th, 2011 at 1:31 pm

    phil SHOULD be confident. he is facing the mariners…

  84. MG July 27th, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    Hughes is throwing the ball pretty well today, particularly his fastball…

  85. blake July 27th, 2011 at 1:36 pm

    Betsy,

    I didn’t make.any other jokes.or.comments about Rodney King that Im.aware of…..I think we have a misunderstanding

  86. Betsy July 27th, 2011 at 1:37 pm

    Blake, I know you didn’t make it………I’m sorry, lol, clearly we were not on the same page. However, your comment about Cashman and his spidey underwear is an image I shall always cherish, lol

  87. Captain Clutch July 27th, 2011 at 1:37 pm

    Now Hughes has to be able to put him away with 2 strikes….

  88. SoS July 27th, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    blake,
    Ghost Stein did. Its a misunderstanding.

  89. Captain Clutch July 27th, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    Not being able to put away guys with 2 strikes is a giant problem for Hughes

  90. Mell July 27th, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    Always used to think of Franklin Gutierrez as unwalkable. Now’s he walked in consecutive plate appearances.

  91. G-C July 27th, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    Change up change up change up!

  92. SoS July 27th, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    That damn 2 strike curse at it again.

  93. rconn23 July 27th, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    And that folks is why the Yankees have to get a starter. Hughes just can’t put away hitters, even awful ones like Guttierez.

    A 10 pitch walk to a .191 hitter is just awful.

  94. yankeefeminista July 27th, 2011 at 1:40 pm

  100. ac1 July 27th, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    well felix can stop worrying about his pitch count…

  101. WyoYankee July 27th, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    Make the trade for Jimenez or forget WS this year.
    Maybe Phil comes back next year, but if you want to compete this year you have to get Jimenez.

  102. SoS July 27th, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    It’s true that he hasn’t made much, if any progress, in that area………it’s unfortunate, but I don’t know how you go about fixing that

    ========

    IMO, if hes planning on walking someone, then just plunk him with the first pitch and to conserve your pitch count.

  103. Mell July 27th, 2011 at 1:46 pm

    Kinda undo the damage of a 24 pitch inning when you go weakly on 7 pitches the next inning.

  104. ac1 July 27th, 2011 at 1:47 pm

    Did i miss something?
    Has Jimenez won a World Series?
    Besides the first half last year, what shows he is our answer?

  105. G-C July 27th, 2011 at 1:47 pm

    Phil’s perceived problems with “putting away hitters” are just that…perceived.

    He’s had a good strikeout rate his entire career.

    This year has been different. But he looks GREAT today.

  106. GreenBeret7 July 27th, 2011 at 1:48 pm

    Big inning for Hughes after that 25 pitch inning and a short rest.

  107. Mell July 27th, 2011 at 1:48 pm

    Holy crap!

    Olney reporting that Giants are moving Brown AND Z. Wheeler in the Beltran deal.

  108. SoS July 27th, 2011 at 1:49 pm

    Is this Posadas last week being the regular dh?

  109. J. Alfred Prufrock July 27th, 2011 at 1:49 pm

    Way too much Kim Jones in these gamecasts. Hope Week is great, but her omnipresence while pitches are being thrown is distracting & Fox-like.

    Zack Wheeler and 2 players to be named later I believe. Decent haul

  114. WyoYankee July 27th, 2011 at 1:53 pm

    No Jimenez has not won a WS. Hughes aint gonna help win 1 this year and Jimenez might. Phil sucks. Get it got it good.

  115. rconn23 July 27th, 2011 at 1:54 pm

    So much for looking “great.”

    Not from the number i have seen this yeah with Jimenez, even in the NL.

  117. Captain Clutch July 27th, 2011 at 1:55 pm

    That pitch was right down the middle. Hughes really has trouble with 2 outs and finishing off the inning.

  118. Mell July 27th, 2011 at 1:55 pm

    Ackley’s going to be a player. Nice stick.

  119. Ghost of Steinbrenner July 27th, 2011 at 1:55 pm

    Nice inning Phil! Can’t wait for next inning. (As facetious as I can be)

  120. WyoYankee July 27th, 2011 at 1:56 pm

    Ya we are really competing with Boston-wake up.

    This ackley kid looks to be pretty good.

    Hughes had only 2 pitches that inning clocking in at 92, most of his fastballs were at 91. Cause for concern?

  123. G-C July 27th, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    Ackley is a good looking young player.

    Those guys are going to score some runs eventually.

    I still am very encouraged by what I’ve seen today out of Phil.

  124. mick July 27th, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    At this point, Nova is better than Hughes.
    He fools no one and is not overpowering.

  125. Captain Clutch July 27th, 2011 at 1:58 pm

    I fully expect Felix to win today because the Yanks never hit him. But Hughes has to pitch well against this awful lineup. He has to be able to put guys away with 2 strikes and 2 outs. Cashman has protected him like his baby and it’s time for Hughes to prove them right. Nova is waiting in the wings if Hughes doesn’t start improving.

  126. mick July 27th, 2011 at 1:58 pm

    I would trade Hughes this week for the right pitcher.

    Phil looks good today.

    If he throws 6 innings of 2 run ball coming off what he did last week you’d have to consider it a huge positive. Especially because he’s got his good fastball back for the first time.

    Hughes stuff looks good; any problems he has have to do with command which tells me there is nothing physically wrong with him – it’s mechanical, his delivery. When you miss location with your fastball to big league hitters you will get burned. I don’t care how hard you throw.

    Has Hughes ever pitched to a low pitch count? No. Why would you expect him to now?

    He’s been a swing and miss guy his whole career, not a ground ball inducing machine that gets out of counts early with cheap outs.

    He’s young and he probably nibbles too much because he’s been getting hit recently.

    He’s fine.

  233. Triple Short of a Cycle July 27th, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    G-C,

    8 hits and 2 runs so far against the worst hitting team in baseball. Nova was never projected to be a top of the rotation guy and its also Nova’s first full year

  234. G-C July 27th, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    Usual nonsense talk about Ivan Nova.

    “He’s great at ‘limiting the damage!”

    “He showed good toughness in tight spots!”

    “He has a lot of poise!”

    Well, Hughes pretty much has shown all of those things today.

  235. RadioKev July 27th, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    This is the kind of outing that people would have been GUSHING over from Ivan Nova.

    Jesus Christ.
    ———-

    Expectation level. Hughes has always had higher expectations, Nova is a pleasant surprise. Results, not particularly different.

  236. WyoYankee July 27th, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    Seatle is terrible. Awful BAD. How does Bard not score-good defense by Gardner but bad base running. We have several AAA pitchers who could shut this team down, but not Hughes. His velo is no better than 3 months ago. We need Jimenez. Oh did I mention get Jimenez. Call Denver and get it done. Trade Hughes. Put Hughes in BP. By the way make a deal for Jimenez.

  237. J. Alfred Prufrock July 27th, 2011 at 2:36 pm

    We have Nova tucked away to recall.

  238. SoS July 27th, 2011 at 2:36 pm

  248. UnKnown July 27th, 2011 at 2:39 pm

    wow three of this pitches were right in the zone. Yanks really need to take advantage of some breaks here in this inning.

  250. syd_cash July 27th, 2011 at 2:39 pm

    guess that ump in the ATL/Pirates game just wanted to go home. What a terrible call

  251. LockDown July 27th, 2011 at 2:40 pm

    Hughes lucked out there in the 5th. He gave up like 3-4 hits and only gave up 1 run thanks to the mariners. If that guy doesn’t pause, he scores & Ichiro should have been at 3rd.

    He’s not pitching bad. But as the innings go on, his FB gets very hittable and the mariners are sitting on it.

  252. J. Alfred Prufrock July 27th, 2011 at 2:40 pm

    Good job JEte

    I think Kay is the 2nd best among teams that play in New York.

    I’d take Mike Shannon, Jon Miller among others.

    Not saying Kay is worse than everyone else, merely that he doesn’t distinguish himself as better either. His most compeling feature as a play by play guy is the team he works for. Otherwise, nothin’.

  266. G-C July 27th, 2011 at 2:45 pm

    Need a good inning now, get into the bullpen and hand them #18

  269. blake July 27th, 2011 at 2:46 pm

    Good job there by the Yanks….just hang in there and.keep it close and try and get Felix out and win it late.

  270. hardwired7 July 27th, 2011 at 2:47 pm

    need another half inning w/quality ABs to push him to 100 pitches.

  271. UnKnown July 27th, 2011 at 2:48 pm

    probably have to get Hughes out of this game to keep it close.

  272. Captain Clutch July 27th, 2011 at 2:48 pm

    At some point Hughes has to show improvement. His stuff looked good in the 1st inning and it got worse in every inning after that. If you can’t dominate this lineup then how are you expected to pitch good against a real lineup? The yanks have to stop making excuses for him.

  273. GoldGlove9486 July 27th, 2011 at 2:48 pm

    Enough of Hughes….another two strike hit, right after we score. Get on the phone Cashman. The Yankees have officially ruined all of their young pitchers.

  274. WyoYankee July 27th, 2011 at 2:48 pm

    Get Noesi. Phil will not win this game-no way, no how.

  275. austinmac July 27th, 2011 at 2:49 pm

    That’s it if I am managing. That plus an 89 mph fastball.

  276. J. Alfred Prufrock July 27th, 2011 at 2:49 pm

    Kay would help his own cause if he took a breath every once in awhile. Even so, he’s pretty weak as a baseball announcer. At his best when he’s getting O’Neill or Leiter to open up.

    They don’t make Mell Allens or Bill Whites any more.

  277. GoldGlove9486 July 27th, 2011 at 2:49 pm

    Maybe Hughes can be in the bullpen for the playoffs or something based on how his first innings have been.

    Hughes obviously isn’t the same pitcher he was last year-his stuff doesn’t hold up through the game right now.

    He isn’t going to get any better, however, pitching out of the bullpen.

    The Yankees have a cushion in the standings for the wildcard to give him a little more rope, it’s their choice and there is no absolute right or wrong either.

  282. J. Alfred Prufrock July 27th, 2011 at 2:51 pm

  285. J. Alfred Prufrock July 27th, 2011 at 2:52 pm

    What? We have a cushion?

    The way people on here freak out, you’d think it was us with the 17 game losing streak.

  286. LGY July 27th, 2011 at 2:52 pm

    I just saw the Rasmus deal.

    WTF? That can’t be serious right?

  287. Chip July 27th, 2011 at 2:52 pm

    Wow – Jays did get Rasmus for virtually nothing. If Marc Rzepczynski is the biggest long term player you’re going to get for Colby Rasmus then that deal stinks.

    Giants are (reportedly) giving up a much better package for Carlos Beltran.

  288. rconn23 July 27th, 2011 at 2:52 pm

    Hector Noesi, though to be a No.4 starter, is light years ahead of Phil Hughes right now. He’s just been awful.

    A real offense would have put up six runs easy on him so far.

  289. Pat M. July 27th, 2011 at 2:53 pm

    Franklin hitting a buck 90, man that is hard to understand

  290. austinmac July 27th, 2011 at 2:53 pm

    Hughes loses his stuff as he tires. Doesn’t that say he needs better conditioning so he doesn’t fatigue so quickly?

    Seriously – Toronto fans should be paying homage to Alex Anthopolus. In the last two years he has gotten Brendon Morrow for Brandon League, gotten Colby Rasmus for Corey Patterson, Jason Frasor, Marc Rzepczynski, Octavio Dotel and one prospect and gotten out from under Vernon Wells’s contract.

  294. Captain Clutch July 27th, 2011 at 2:54 pm

    This should definitely be his last batter

  295. LGY July 27th, 2011 at 2:54 pm

    Yanks don’t get any big time players anymore at the trade deadline. Last one was Abreu and that was a salary dump

  304. G. Love July 27th, 2011 at 2:57 pm

    This is a good outing for Hughes. Granted he’s facing the Long Island Ducks, but he didn’t fall apart on the mound. Gardner saved his bacon with that play last inning. You can’t complain about his start today.

  305. J. Alfred Prufrock July 27th, 2011 at 2:58 pm

    Shame, if that’s what’s going on with Hughes, it isn’t terminal, though it may not be there for him this year. Verlander has the cleanest mechanics around, throws 98 mph in the seventh inning, but he lost arm speed & strength the year after his arm took a jump in innings. He was back to throwing gas the year after (Some Tigers fans wanted him moved.)

  306. igotid88 July 27th, 2011 at 2:58 pm

    The price on Beltran and Rasmus is so not what anyone here was thinking that the Yankees should be swooping in. Beltran is getting traded straight up for an A+ pitcher. Rasmus is going for garbage.

  308. Yankee Trader July 27th, 2011 at 2:58 pm

    Good finish for Phil-day likely done on a good note!

  309. G-C July 27th, 2011 at 2:58 pm

    Phil Hughes has given up 2 runs in 3 of his 4 starts since coming back from the DL.

    You can say his stuff doesn’t look sharp yet.

    But don’t for a second try to tell me that he should be moved to the bullpen or demoted, or that he’s “hurting the team.”

    That’s flat out nonsense.

  310. 108 stitches July 27th, 2011 at 2:59 pm

    Don’t stretch it with Hughes. He’s reached his pitch limit. Time for Noesi.

  311. Mell July 27th, 2011 at 2:59 pm

    That 6th inning was SO Mariners.

  312. mick July 27th, 2011 at 2:59 pm

    quality start against a AAA team…

  313. tomingeorgia July 27th, 2011 at 2:59 pm

    Two runs, six innings. A quality start, they say. Didn’t look like it to me, bu who am I to say?

  314. ac1 July 27th, 2011 at 2:59 pm

    6 innings, 2 runs is good….
    even vs. the mariners.
    it’s enough to buy him another start without the AAA talk.

  315. UnKnown July 27th, 2011 at 2:59 pm

    Hughes battled his way today through a good outing. Now time for the pen. Nice performance today from Hughes only allowing 2 runs.

  316. Shame Spencer July 27th, 2011 at 2:59 pm

  317. austinmac July 27th, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    I would say possible offensive chances took a big hit. Cashman does really believe the team’s offense is enough. I don’t get not seeking improvement when it is obtainable.

  318. mick July 27th, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    I would bite on Zambrano

  319. Pat M. July 27th, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    Thing about The Mariners that is still puzzling was that prior to this incredible 17 game skid, they were a .500 club and trailing in The AL west by not many games……Then they blew out several tires

  322. G. Love July 27th, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    Just try to pretend he didn’t give up 9 hits and it’s a great start. His velocity dropped again after 80 pitches.

    He kept them in the game though. That’s to be commended. They have a real chance to win this one.

  323. Triple Short of a Cycle July 27th, 2011 at 3:01 pm

    Jerkface,

    It doesn’t matter what they went for. The fact that teams rarely do salary dumps anymore has hurt the Yankees chances of getting top guys. If Weaver were available this year do you really think the Yankees would land him?

  324. mick July 27th, 2011 at 3:02 pm

    one 0r 2 awful starts and hughes will be back in the minors trying to prove something
    nova didnt deserve to be demoted

  325. MG July 27th, 2011 at 3:02 pm

    Hughes’ last couple of fastballs were 92 in the 6th inning…

  326. GoldGlove9486 July 27th, 2011 at 3:02 pm

    Way to help him get out of the game Robbie.

  327. austinmac July 27th, 2011 at 3:02 pm

    Hughes did have more fastball the first inning or two. I agree it is spring training for him, but his early season issues cause concern. Hopefully, he will keep improving.

  328. Northy July 27th, 2011 at 3:02 pm

    Cano – take som pitches so we get a chance at the bullpen…. Christ

  329. igotid88 July 27th, 2011 at 3:02 pm

    I’d have Hughes go back out.

  330. ac1 July 27th, 2011 at 3:03 pm

    down only one in the 6th against Felix is about what you can ask for after seeing the Yankees other games vs. Felix.

  331. G-C July 27th, 2011 at 3:03 pm

    Cano can really be a big idiot sometimes.

  332. Ace July 27th, 2011 at 3:03 pm

    Way to work that count Cano.

  333. MG July 27th, 2011 at 3:04 pm

    Hernandez isn’t coming out of this game until 120-130 pitches, they’ve lost 17 in a row.

    Teams have gotten to Felix late in the game all season, this one is far from over…

  334. kd July 27th, 2011 at 3:04 pm

    felix showing why he’s the king. a lot of late movement on those pitches.

  335. Captain Clutch July 27th, 2011 at 3:04 pm

    Would it kill cano to actually work the count against a tough pitcher?

  336. Jerkface July 27th, 2011 at 3:04 pm

    Hughes curve only averaged 73 mph, he really needs to get that bad boy up to 77-80

  337. LockDown July 27th, 2011 at 3:04 pm

    I do think he lucked out in the 5th & the mariners didn’t make him pay for his hanging pitches.

    But Hughes has to feel good about this outing. He could take that confidence with him to his next start.

  338. Ace July 27th, 2011 at 3:05 pm

    Zambrano? No. Don’t need another 3-4. Need a legit 2

    UBALDO JIMENEZ ON THE MOVE

    On Tuesday afternoon, we heard an official for a contending team utter these momentous words about the Great Ubaldo:

    “My guess is, they move him.”

    That’s because the Ubaldo talk these days is no idle chatter. The Rockies are “really engaged,” said one AL executive. And multiple teams echo those sentiments.

    The Reds are in. The Yankees and Red Sox are in. The Rangers, Tigers and Blue Jays are on this trail.

    “He’s definitely out there,” one exec said. “This is no smokescreen. This is legit.”

  343. Chambliss July 27th, 2011 at 3:06 pm

    Yankees have a pretty good outfield with Gardner, Swisher and Granderson, so I am not sure why people are so upset about Rasmus going to Toronto.

    As for Hughes, I think that everyone is hoping for the return of the guy who was well on his way to throwing a no hitter against Texas before injuring his hamstring. The Hughes who pitched today is a very different pitcher.

    King Felix is great, but the Yankees have had their chances today. They will get another chance or two to win before this game is over.

  344. GreenBeret7 July 27th, 2011 at 3:06 pm

    At most, 3 of the hits were hard. The rest were ground singles. Only Cust hit a long fly ball. He’s walked one batter. Yep. No improvement. Oakland is not much of a hitting team and Rivera gave up 4 straight singles and a run in one inning. Hughes control has been better than Hernandez’ was today. I’ll settle for this and build on this game.

  353. Triple Short of a Cycle July 27th, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    Chambliss,

    Because Rasmus could be here for the next 8 years or so. He replaces Swisher. You are telling me you wouldn’t have given up the package the Jays did to get him?

  354. mick July 27th, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    At most, 3 of the hits were hard. The rest were ground singles. Only Cust hit a long fly ball. He’s walked one batter. Yep. No improvement.
    ===========================
    Not bad against this AAA team…

  355. Bret The Hitman July 27th, 2011 at 3:10 pm

    ZMAN,

    I agree 100%. The only justification for not using Nova to acquire Rasmus is that you need Nova in a deal for something better than Rasmus.

    Better be the case or I will be fuming.

  356. Dill Pickler July 27th, 2011 at 3:10 pm

    I have to say, I’m extremely disappointed in the approach by Cano this year. The guy has the talent to be a superstar. All he lacks is the patience and mental toughness, and last year it looked like he’d finally got the message. Increased his walks to 57, nearly double the year before, and look at the results. He had a breakout year. So what does he do this year? He announces in spring training that he’s not going to be as patient this year, that he’s going to be “more aggressive.” And you see the results. Every plate appearance he’s up there hacking at pitcher’s pitches, getting himself out. He looks like he’s in a hurry to get to the bathroom or something. Jeebus. He’s on pace for 30 walks this year, and regress in every other category as well. Plus, now, with ARod out, when we really need him to step it up, he’s gone ice cold. The guy is maybe the most frustrating Yankee to watch in the past 20 years, because he has so much talent and he wastes it.

  357. Chambliss July 27th, 2011 at 3:11 pm

    I have only seen Ubaldo pitch a few times, but I have serious concerns about giving up top prospects for a National League pitcher. Pitching in the A.L East is so different. The Sox, Jays, O’s and Rays all put out a much better lineup than the average NL team.

  358. LGY July 27th, 2011 at 3:11 pm

    Will Hughes get his fastball velo back this season?

  359. syd_cash July 27th, 2011 at 3:11 pm

    not really a bad start for Phil considering that he only gave up 2 runs. (However I think he can pitch better then he did today.) He can have better command and location and more mixing of pitches.

  360. yanks 27 July 27th, 2011 at 3:12 pm

    So the Rockies don’t require the Reds 2 top prospects, yet they want the 2 Yankees top prospects?

    Cash needs to outsmart this fool. Also make sure he isn’t caught sleeping with Danks like he was with Rasmus

  361. ac1 July 27th, 2011 at 3:13 pm

    yankees should look into ichiro…

  362. yanks 27 July 27th, 2011 at 3:13 pm

    Hughes gave up 10 baserunners in 6 innings to the Mariners. If that is a step forward, that says a lot about where he is.

    His stuff was OK. Velo declined as the game went on.

    Could’ve used Soriano today. If he is ready to pitch they should’ve activated him for today’s game, knowing that the pen was going to be used.

  365. Bret The Hitman July 27th, 2011 at 3:14 pm

    As soon as the Reds acquire Jimenez, watch the Rays put James Shields on the market. There is just no way they’re putting Shields on the market while the Reds are engaged in a bidding war with the Yankees over Jimenez. I think the Rox are using the Reds as a price driver. I think they covet Montero in Coors above everything else out there. The Rays know it.

  366. J. Alfred Prufrock July 27th, 2011 at 3:15 pm

    No way the Red Sox are in on Ubaldo, unless they’re giving up guys on the major league roster.

    At least the Yankees don’t have to concern themselves with playing defense against Boston here.

  367. jacksquat July 27th, 2011 at 3:15 pm

    1.67 whip this game for Hughes. Only 3 k’s. Bottom line, in the long run that whip and that k rate is going to result in a bad ERA. You can call that whining or trolling if you want, I don’t care.

    At least it was only 1 walk. He doesn’t look terrible but he’s not impressing me much yet either.

  368. blake July 27th, 2011 at 3:15 pm

    I still can’t believe the Jays got Rasmus for spare parts and that the Cardinals traded him for a rental pitcher that really kinda sucks and a couple of reliever…..sold really really low on a 24 year old cost controlled outfielder. Just a terrible trade for the Cards big picture……even you you wanted to get rid of Rasmus thy didn’t get near enough back.

  369. Northy July 27th, 2011 at 3:15 pm

    A boring ballgame so far today.

  370. Chambliss July 27th, 2011 at 3:16 pm

    Triple, I would have done the deal for Rasmus, but I am not going to get bent out of shape about missing out on him. I am sure that the Yankees are pursuing many options for improving the team, including in the outfield. Unless Cashman has some problem with the Cards GM or front office, I would have to think that they had a conversation. As with most deals, I would be willing to bet that the asking price from the Yankees for Rasmus was higher than the price that the Jays paid.

  371. mick July 27th, 2011 at 3:16 pm

  373. I Am Winning July 27th, 2011 at 3:17 pm

    Dill Pickler,

    I think your assessment on Cano is pretty unfair on the guy. He obviously has one of the sweetest swings ever, but it’s almost as if you want him to beat his own stats every year. That’s tough to do considering the great things he’s already done. Walking only 18 times in 482 ABs and still having a BA over .340 is pretty great in itself. So obviously, the walks aren’t his issue. I don’t think he needs to wait for that ONE pitch that many people try and wait for, because he can hit a hitters pitch for a line drive. I do agree that he needs to be a little more patient in the beginning of the count though. But at the same time, pitchers sometimes throw lazy fastballs as the first pitch, and Cano has absolutely crushed some of those.

  374. stuart a July 27th, 2011 at 3:17 pm

    nice d by cano and jeter… jeter cannot move…

    cano is overrating. great on dp, going to right, horrible going to left.

  376. GreenBeret7 July 27th, 2011 at 3:17 pm

    A pitcher can give up hits and walks and get hammered or he can give up hits and no walks or walks and a few hits. Only the triple really hurt him.

  377. Jerkface July 27th, 2011 at 3:17 pm

    wow what the heck was that….now we are channeling the Seattle’s awfulness

  381. LGY July 27th, 2011 at 3:18 pm

    Nice job by Cano and Jeter this inning.

  382. stuart a July 27th, 2011 at 3:18 pm

    cano should be taken out of the game is effort today is disgraceful..

  383. Mell July 27th, 2011 at 3:18 pm

    We better be after him considering they didn’t feel like topping the Jays offer for Rasmus, presumably because they had another deal available with the same players

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

    Before killing Cashman on this Rasmus thing (while also noting this team does not need Rasmus), let us note that along with getting Jackson to flip to St. Lou, they also took back Mark Teahen and his $8M thru 2012. Good deal for Toronto, but it appears they had to absord a little crap to make it happen.

  384. Jerkface July 27th, 2011 at 3:18 pm

    The way that teams seem to make sweetheart deals with the Sox, the Sox will probably give up Scutaro and J.D. Drew for Ubaldo.

  392. kd July 27th, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    blake,

    you have to wonder what the yankees offered or if they offered anything at all. maybe cashman didn’t want to deal with his father. i have to think that phelps or warren was a better deal than what was traded.

    or he has a huge deal in the works and needs all of his pieces

  393. Ace July 27th, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    What do u know. Logan comes in n the other team scores. Who would have guessed??

  394. mick July 27th, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    Cano has changed his approach for sure.
    Its obvious. Funny thing is he wont get the 40 HR’s he wants as staffs are on to him.
    Better off with 320 and a solid 30 HR’s.
    In due time he will be traded.

  395. West Coast Yankee Fan July 27th, 2011 at 3:20 pm

    Good start for Hughes. I liked his stuff, just needs to work on his command.

    How many times has the Yankee defense cost them late in games this season?

  402. LockDown July 27th, 2011 at 3:22 pm

    Bad defense behind Boone resulted in that run. Should have been a DP ball. Boone is probably wondering why he didn’t have the same stellar. saving his butt defense, that Hughes got today.

  403. ac1 July 27th, 2011 at 3:23 pm

    if they can hold it here and get felix out after 7, they still have a solid chance.

    I honestly don’t know…..probably not because it appears the Cards are going all in with this deal. Its a good deal for them for this year……its just a crappy one for after that. This deal helps them more this year than.Nova would.

    granderson should have caught that.

    they gave away another game, simply given away.

    check out cano’s ab’s today. simply horrible and disgraceful. the guy is a suppose superstar with 62 rbi’s hitting 5th on the yanks…

    he is a good player that is it….

  425. Bret The Hitman July 27th, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    Seeing Kenny Williams dump Teahran’s 8 million for 2012 to cut payroll and not end up with Rasmus makes me think we can acquire Quentin cheaply if we absorb the 12 million owed to Matt Thornton over the next couple years.

  426. Captain Clutch July 27th, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    That ball has to be caught. Just pathetic inning for this team.

    Amazing how a veteran team has made so many boneheaded mistakes in the field this season.

  430. JimK July 27th, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    I thought the ball that went under Cano’s glove that was fielded by Jeter would have been an out had Texiera been playing first; Posada made no effort at a stretch for the throw.
    However, it is moot now as the Yankees defense has completely come apart at the seems with the dropped ball by Granderson.

  431. Ace July 27th, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    Mariners had to win a game eventually. I would love to see them replace Logan with Hughes in the pen. See if Hughes can regain the mojo that he had in 2009.

  434. stuart a July 27th, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    and why would the yanks want quentin??? they have 3 more then adequate outfielders. quentin is a horrible fielder, gets hurt all the time, and is marginally better then swisher.

  435. mick July 27th, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    robbies problem has always been in his head
    some will realize that after he is traded

  436. GoldGlove9486 July 27th, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    And why is Posada playing first today? Girardi worried he’ll cry? Don’t tell me Tex needs a rest every five days. First base is not exhausting.

  437. Ace July 27th, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    This team is short a dh bat. A lefty in pen. N a top SP.

  438. Dill Pickler July 27th, 2011 at 3:28 pm

    I Am Winning —

    It’s not that I get all apoplectic every time Cano swings at a first pitch. Sometimes the first pitch is the best pitch you’re going to get that at bat, and it’s not a bad idea to swing at it. What frustrates about Cano is that he saw what having a little more patience did for him last year — he had a breakout season. Then he decides — for some unknown reason — to go back to his old, hack at everything approach. It doesn’t make sense, and it clearly has not worked for him. Of course he has a sweet swing. That’s what makes him so frustrating, because he can be great. But he often gets himself out on pitcher’s pitches, early in the count, when there is no reason to swing at those kinds of pitches.

    Just bad baseball by the Yankees today all the way around.

  439. blake July 27th, 2011 at 3:28 pm

    Kd,

    I think the Cards are going for broke this year for.some.reason now……that’s the only reasonable explanation for why they’d do that deal. Jackson and the relievers thy got will help this year……its a terrible trade long term though.

  444. rconn23 July 27th, 2011 at 3:29 pm

    Just a bad performance by the Yankees today. They battled Felix, but Cano just played an atrocious game today and Hughes was terrible.

    If he were facing an elite offense he would have been done by the fourth. He was facing a AAA caliber offense and couldn’t get outs.

    It’s only because of the ineptitude of the Mariners that the damage wasn’t worse.

  445. Bret The Hitman July 27th, 2011 at 3:29 pm

    Stuart,

    Quentin for DH.

    Trade for Ubaldo Jimenez and keep Nova out of the deal.

    Spin Nova+ for 1.5 years of Quentin.

    Absorb the 12 million remaining on Matt Thornton’s contract.

  450. Tyler July 27th, 2011 at 3:30 pm

    The only way I could see them going for broke is if they really don’t think they are going to keep Pujols. I don’t see how they can’t keep him but maybe internally they just don’t think it will work and are loading up. the problem is that they still aren’t that good. Their staff is average at best and their bullpen is atrocious.

  451. I Am Winning July 27th, 2011 at 3:30 pm

    Exactly. It was going to end sometime. The Yanks took the series and dominated the first 2 games. It’s not like the M’s came in and swept them.

  456. blake July 27th, 2011 at 3:31 pm

    Felix didn’t look nearly as unhittable today as he has in the past…..he was still very good obviously but his velocity is down a bit and he’s not been as dominat in general as he has been……

  457. Mgumpher July 27th, 2011 at 3:31 pm

    Cashman needs to trade away Logan, as Girardi doesn’t seem to have the sense when to play him and when to just ignore the usual play book move. Just like he did with Farnsworth.

    I knew the “mightly M’s”, the joke of the league, would end their streak against the Yankees. It’s what they do. A batter slumping, go to face the Yanks and the slump will be over faster and less painfully than using a slumpbuster.

    Humiliating…

    Cano’s first pitch swinging might be good sometimes, but today their best chance to beat Felix was to work the count – he has walk som today…

  460. egk July 27th, 2011 at 3:31 pm

    That whole 7th inning was on Cano. One out and Ithiro triples. Cano blows the easy out at first when he doesn’t get his glove down. Jeter, backing it up can’t beat the runner. Should have been 2 outs then Cano’s flip play should have been another easy out at first.

    Add in his swinging at the first pitch in the bottom of the sixth as Felix’s pitch count is going up. Cano could be one of the best players in the game if he ever decides he wants to.

    the yanks are going to do something small at the best. cashman unless ownership over rules him is not trading top prospects. also today hughes showed me more of the same. his stuff is avg. the guy is 25 and his stuff is avg. what do they do with him….

    if the yanks dfa’d jorge then I would beleive they want to win. also what the hell are they doing with Montero. BRING HIM UP ALREADY. if he is on most other franchises he is up already. I bet 25 teams or so would have him in the big’s if he was in there system. but the yanks cannot offend jorge…..

  467. GoldGlove9486 July 27th, 2011 at 3:33 pm

    Bottom line, it’s not a pennant race. The Red Sox are winning the AL East. Their schedule is easy, and the Yankees have 6 of 9 games with Boston at Fenway. Boston can put up 10 runs a game. The Yankees’ clean up hitter is hurt, and our rotation is still a big question mark. Like 2010, Girardi and the Yankees will focus on the Wild Card, but they’ll be sorry when they don’t get to play the Twins in October.

  468. blake July 27th, 2011 at 3:33 pm

    Tyler,

    Yea coukd be…..but if they don’t like their chances at keeping Albert then wouldn’t having a cheap 24 year old CF with upside be a good thing……as you say, they still aren’t very good now.and are a longshot to win the WS IMO. Seems like a very short sided deal not.only because you let go of a good player but because you sold really low on him

  469. Ace July 27th, 2011 at 3:33 pm

    Felix vs Hughes is biggest mismatch of season. Hughes gave up 9 hits in 6. Sea hasn’t had 9 hits all week. He will get lit up vs a good team.

    Jeter looked like he 47 on the attempt… the yanks gave up on this one.. yuck

  476. I Am Winning July 27th, 2011 at 3:35 pm

    Dill Pickler,

    Cano’s second year in the Majors was his breakout season. Although his 2010 season was better than 09, the stats were very, very close. The only real big difference, which you’ve mentioned, is the additional walks. Other than the walks, nothing else has changed drastically, indicating that regardless of walk totals, he is the same player.

    In no way am I saying that I don’t want Cano to have a .400+ OBP, but that just shows to me that regardless of how many walks he actually takes his AVG, SLG, etc. will be very similar.

  477. Ace July 27th, 2011 at 3:35 pm

    I have to agree, even though Hughes only gave up two runs he was saved by Gardner and the M’s are a terrible offensive team. Given the fact that he had a lousy outing against the weak hitting A’s and today’s mediocre start I think it’s time to move Hughes out of the rotation and bring back Nova (what is his physical status?).

    Colorado for Jiminez. But I am the moron.

  494. I Am Winning July 27th, 2011 at 3:42 pm

    Othello,

    Good for you if you’re able to watch every Red Sox AND Yankee game. I barely have time to watch one Yankee game a week. So I wouldn’t know how good the Red Sox are at come from behind wins, other than to look at their win column.

    October 2008 is when I had that feeling of not winning the WS.

    One question for you Othello. If the Yankees come back this game to win, will you change your mind regarding your whole assessment as to how good the Red Sox, how badly you think the Yankees won’t win the WS, and how bad the Yankees are from come from behind wins?

  495. Phranchise July 27th, 2011 at 3:42 pm

    Who said Hughes start was good, but it wasn’t a disaster. 6 innings and 2 runs it makes no difference. Did he keep them in the game or better yet did he lose it for them?

    As good as the bullpen has been, seems Wade, Logan and Ayala couldn’t get outs.

    And the best yet is the call for bringing back Nova who was getting killed for his incosistency before a few good ones prior to being sent down.

  496. Captain Clutch July 27th, 2011 at 3:43 pm

    I would rather lose 7-1 instead of 2-1. If the Mariners only had a 1 run lead Felix wasn’t coming out of this game until the 9th inning.

  498. Jerkface July 27th, 2011 at 3:43 pm

    The Yankees have basically declared top prospect Manuel Banuelos off-limits in talks, but they have enough depth that they could put together an attractive package without him. O’Dowd is said to want three or four players in return for Jimenez, and it’s thought that some combination of Jesus Montero, Austin Romine, Dellin Betances, Ivan Nova or Phil Hughes could convince the Rockies to make a deal.

    Romine+nova+hughes

  506. Melk Man July 27th, 2011 at 3:47 pm

    Ace – Yup. 10 baserunners in 6 innings against this team isn’t good by any stretch. If that were Boston and Texas, it would be 10 runs in 6 innings.

    Which is why Cash needs to have his eye on the postseason when making deals. We don’t need guys to keep us in the game against the As, Mariners, Orioles, etc.

    Realists? Losers, is more like it. We’re two games out of first place, we’ve got a kid on the mound who is basically in his own Spring Training, & we’re losing the third game in a series we’ve already taken the first two in. It’s July 27, our cleanup hitter is on the DL, Chamberlain’s on the DL, & we’re hanging with your Yawkies, who have bigger pitching woes than we do.

  521. Dill Pickler July 27th, 2011 at 3:53 pm

    I Am Winning —

    Agreed, his second year was his breakout year. But despite hitting .342 that year, he only scored 62 runs. With an on-base percentage of .365. Last year, he doubled his home runs from that second year, and despite hitting 23 points lower than ’06, he was on base a lot more (.380s) and scored a lot more runs (103). Also, he hit 5th for the first time last year. In ’06 he hit down in the lineup and wasn’t counted on to be one of the main run producers. Last year, and now, he is. I guess what really frustrates the most is that his patient approach worked, clearly. You know the old adage, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Why did he change his approach back this season? It makes no sense, and it’s not working. He’s on pace to have a very mediocre season by his standards. He could be great, and because of impatience (some will say laziness), he’s just not.

  522. Tyler July 27th, 2011 at 3:53 pm

    Hughes will have about 12 more starts. Just let him pitch. He will have more good games than bad. So far since coming back he’s had 3 so-so to very good to 1 bad start. No matter what teams he was facing. He gave up 2 runs in 3 of those starts when his stuff wasn’t there fully. He needs to throw and build strength. Sending him down or putting him in the bullpen won’t help. Many pitchers as pointed out here before had a regression the following year after a huge bump in innings. I’m trying to think long term with Hughes.

  532. LGY July 27th, 2011 at 3:55 pm

    Yes, but how entirely predictable that their losing streak would end against the Yankees. We have been THE team to end losing streaks this season (the Red Sox and the White Sox, if my memory serves me right). No disgrace losing to Felix Hernandez but the manner of defeat today is most definitely a disgrace. To get blown out at home by a team that has just lost 17 games in a row is totally UNACCEPTABLE. We’re a good team…just not that good. The offense is way too inconsistent and without a healthy A-Rod, we lack punch when it counts.

    Mell,

    3 and 1/3?

    Well, the Rasmus deal still keeps the market for 1.5 years of Quentin in check. The key is Kenny Williams dumped 8 million (Teahran) in the deal.

    If the Yankees take on 12 million guaranteed in 2012 and 2013 to Matt Thornton, I think the price on Quentin will be reasonable.

    You know what I find amusing by this huge desire for Jimenez is as well. Hughes was dominant for half of last year, if we can all agree. An AllStar. Then he dropped off. We want him down in the minors now and he isn’t suitable.

    Jimenez’s velcoity is off this year. Similar drop as Hughes, but he throws harder in the first place.

    Jimenez pitches in the NL

    He is currently 6-9 this year with a 4.20 era

    Against AL teams career
    BOS 0-1 5.2 innings 6 earned
    Tigers 1-2 16.0 innings 10 earned
    White Sox 1-0 7 innings 2 earned
    Angles 0-1 7 innings 4 earned
    Seattle 9 innings 4 earned

    I won’t go thru it all, but this is the stud starter you want? The guy who is pouting about not getting the money? With less than stellar stats against AL teams? That isn’t pitching well this year outside a handful of starts?

    If he was pitching in NY this whole year, the same people wanting to get him would be the same ones wanting to trade him away or send him to the minors right now.

  542. Captain Clutch July 27th, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    Tyler-

    I agree with you, right now he is a AAAA guy. Nova shouldn’t have lost his spot in the rotation to him without him proving anything. He almost reminds me of the Wang situation a couple of years ago. How long can they continue to let him find himself while they need to win games? Against a good lineup he never would of lasted until the 6th inning. At some point he has to perform or the better pitcher Nova replaces him.

  543. Bret The Hitman July 27th, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    According to CBS sports, the only player the Yankees have kept out of the Jimenez negotiations is Manny Banuelos.

    “….And the best yet is the call for bringing back Nova who was getting killed for his incosistency before a few good ones prior to being sent down.”

    Since I made the suggestion I assume this line was aimed at my comment. Had I been previously criticizing Nova for his inconsistency your comment would have been warranted, but I was not one of Nova’s critics.
    Further starting in June, Nova performed well enough for a number 5 starter, posting a 4 and 1 record. Granted he failed to go at least 6 innings in 2 of his 6 starts during this period he was more consistent than Hughes has been since his return to the rotation and his demotion was based entirely on Hughes return to the rotation.

    And I don’t understand why the Yankees have so much patience with Hughes but were lightning quick to declare Joba a failure in the rotation. Hughes had almost the same level of success coming out of the bullpen for the Yankees but for some reason they stick with him even though he always finds a way to get hurt and diminished stuff across the board.

  546. Pat M. July 27th, 2011 at 4:01 pm

    LGY….From a long term perspective you let him pitch under a watchful eye and finish off the season…..This is The Yanks and with the August shadows upon us that may not workout for the Yanks and their October aspirations…..For any other team, contenders included, Phil Hughes is making every start for those clubs

  547. Captain Clutch July 27th, 2011 at 4:02 pm

    I hope Cashman is spending a lot of time on the phone with the W.Sox gm this week. Floyd and Danks are very good and worth trading good prospects for and maybe include Thorton or Quentin in the deal to DH.

  548. RadioKev July 27th, 2011 at 4:02 pm

    We extended their losing streak by two games. What the hell do you want? The Mariners to never win again? You can’t win or lose every game of the season, that’s baseball.

    I wanted them to sweep the Mariners, just like the Red Sox did. OK? I said we needed to go 5-1 against the As and the Mariners. You may be happy with 4-2 but I’m not.

    Jimenez is good, but he’s not great. He doesn’t warrant those type of prospects. He’s pitched to a 4.00+ ERA for a year, his velocity is down, and last night there were some alarming bleacher report #s posted about his abilities against winning/losing teams.

    Left the house when it was a 0-1 game. Sounds like it was brutal defensively. 9 hits is a lot in 6 IP, but it was a quality start. And he did give 6 full innings. It’s not pretty, but Phil’s pretty much getting the job done as opposed to his April starts.

  591. stuart a July 27th, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    hughes results were ok today but his stuff was avg… he only hit 91 after the 3rd inning. to many of his pitches bled back over the plate, his curveball at times did not have much bite.

    the yanks are not getting a #2 starter. it is true the yanks rotation is CC and pray. felix is the only 1 worth selling the farm. jimenez has to many issues. he has a funky delivery. his velocity is down 3 or 4 mph from ealry last year, his results have not been great, and he has never proven he can win big time.

    the yanks offense is good but far from great. bostons offense is much much better. the yanks have no DH and refuse to see if the logical answer Montero can do the job.

    tex performance is real down, kevin long could spout BS about BA not mattering all he wants tex is a pull machine.. cano has regressed again. he is a good hitter especially for a 2b, but he is far from great….cano will neve be great, nothing but sawdust between the ears….

    the reason they are more patient with hughes then joba is obvious now they have less options…

    nova is a legit major league pitcher….not many options after that. aj stinks an dthe yare stuck with that sack of cr-p but besides that this team is counting on a overwieght 38 year old, a 35 year old junkballer, and brain dead under performing hillbilly.

    if they added king felix all of a suddent they have 2 mega studs else, ubaldo jimenz is not fixin this train wreck. hughes has absolutely not developed as they hoped and planeed. aj is a lost cause. boston this years is what the yansk thought they would be, they simply outscore teams…. the difference is boston has becket and lester. beckett has been reborn so they have 2 studs for the playoffs the likes of andrew miller, wakefield, and others will not see the field in the playoffs. the back end of the sux pen is good, and aceves has been a godsend for them.

    the yankee offense is down over expectations except for granderson, and that is the truth..

  601. munson15 July 27th, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    Yeah, OK buddy. What I know about the game is this. You don’t win every day. You don’t win the WS every year. You Johnny come lately bandwagoners need to figure that out.

  602. Phranchise July 27th, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    Exactly. So bottom line, Hughes hasn’t shown that he can come back strong or dominant yet, but has beeen “fair” as an assesment and hopefully improves. Nova has proved he is a solid 5 maybe 4 guy on a good team at his age and development. So bottom line chucking these guys aside seems insane especially when both are still developing, don’t make much money and are under team control. The issue is having that second big pitcher in the playoffs. Because division or not, that is the concern, they are up in the wild card right now by quite a bit. But can anyone today without a shadow of a doubt tell me Danks, Jiminez or someone else spoken about with come in a 100% fill that number two spot? And my biggest issue is that either of those two guys as far as what they have done this year, would not be better than AJ I hate to tell you. Do they have the talent sure, but they are not elite.

  603. bruceb July 27th, 2011 at 4:30 pm

    You do lose every day though, just ask the Mariners. And by the way, my name isn’t Johnny and I haven’t come lately.

  604. stuart a July 27th, 2011 at 4:32 pm

    getting jimenz with a over 4 era in the NL west is that really a difference maker. then throw in giving up real prospects is that worth it???

    say they gave up hughes and corban joseph and jr murphy then I say ok.. or betances instead of hughes then ok, but 3 premium prospects!!

    if the yanks have decided that hughes cannot ever be what they thought and they have tried all the ycan and want to move on, that is fine with me. they know more about his development then I do.. banuelos is 20, throws 93, lefty…you cannot give that up.

    people are so interested in giving up montero also, if he turns into a version of edgar martinez they would be ecstatic and nothing he has done yet has changed any of the experts opinion of his hitting ability long term. wory about where arod and jeter are going to play in 3 years in 2.5 years… montero is doing quite well at AAA in his 2nd season there at 21…THE GUY CAN HIT

  605. stuart a July 27th, 2011 at 4:33 pm

    phranchise I disagree with 1 comment Danks and Jimenz are both better and more trustworthy then AJ. aj deserves zere trust and has not gotten into the 6th in many many starts…

  606. munson15 July 27th, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    bruce b ..good one.

  607. stuart a July 27th, 2011 at 4:39 pm

    any objective evaluation of hughes has to be disapointing. the guy was a early first round pick. he has a big frame, excelled i nthe minors. early in his pro career had swing and miss stuff(texas before the hammy or groin) but has been hurt a ton, and results have been very mixed…

    2nd half last year he was bad. when he was in the pen 2 years ago, in the playoffs he faltered, and this year he has ben bad. they put him on the dl for 2 months and never diagnosed a problem. at 25 his mph is down maybe 3 mph, and his hit and miss stuff has almost vanished…

    the trend line is not good..

  608. stuart a July 27th, 2011 at 4:41 pm

    one last gripe about hughes is his pitch selection. last year he was in love with his cutter, now it is never used. the guy does not throw 4 pitches. he throws a change every blue moon but is almost fastball and curve exclusively…

    Nice blog here! Also your web site loads up very fast! What web host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your host? I wish my web site loaded up as quickly as yours lol

    I haven’t checked in here for a while since I thought it was getting boring, but the last several posts are great quality so I guess I’ll add you back to my everyday bloglist. You deserve it my friend :)

  629. link August 10th, 2014 at 7:50 pm

    This is the perfect website for everyone who really wants to find out about this topic. You know so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a new spin on a topic that’s been written about for a long time. Excellent stuff, just great!

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

    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.

  636. Rodrick Dilly August 11th, 2014 at 7:00 am

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

  650. Shelba Braulio August 12th, 2014 at 7:19 am

    Hey there this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  651. Billie Godar August 12th, 2014 at 9:37 am

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    Needed to write you this very small word in order to thank you very much the moment again on your extraordinary techniques you have discussed at this time. It has been certainly pretty open-handed of people like you to give unreservedly all a number of people could have supplied as an e-book to earn some profit for their own end, especially considering the fact that you could have done it if you ever decided. Those secrets in addition acted as a good way to fully grasp that some people have a similar dream much like my very own to grasp significantly more in respect of this matter. I’m sure there are millions of more pleasant opportunities up front for many who look into your site.
