Yankees postgame: No deal

Posted by: Brian Heyman - Posted in Misc on Jul 31, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Brian Cashman said he called around, that the goal is always to improve the pitching. But he didn’t find what he was looking for at the right price. So the rotation remains as is. The Yankees didn’t make a move before the nonwaiver trade deadline at 4 today.

“I just feel like we’re a lot deeper,” Cashman said. “I’m willing, by the position I’ve taken in the last three weeks, to rely on that than go out and pay an enormous price on something that I’m not certain what it’s going to provide. …

“We have one of the premier rosters in the game right now.”

Freddy Garcia and Bartolo Colon have combined for 18 wins. Cashman also praised the improvement in A.J. Burnett and talked about Phil Hughes just having to find the consistency. But most of all, he talked about the organizational pitching depth.

First there’s Ivan Nova with nine wins and no spot. Then there’s Adam Warren, the 23-year-old Triple-A righty. Cashman said he’s “a legitimate starting choice for us right now.” But they’re highest on Manny Banuelos, who appears to be on the fast track. The 20-year-old lefty has earned a promotion from Double-A Trenton. He’s scheduled to make his debut for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday. Cashman didn’t rule him out of the major-league picture for this season, either.

“He’s obviously got ability that the whole industry has taken notice of,” Cashman said.

Cashman also didn’t rule out moves before the waiver-deal deadline Aug. 31.

“It doesn’t mean we’re done shopping or done looking,” Cashman said. “But at the same time, I’m very comfortable with the decisions we made. I like our team. We’ll continue to look for ways to make it better. I think we have some very talented young kids. They might come up here and it’ll be interesting to see their attempt to make it better.”

Brett Gardner, who had the decisive three-run triple in today’s 4-2 win over the Orioles, didn’t think a trade was necessary.

“Everybody has been playing pretty well,” Gardner said. “You hear people talking — not players, teammates or coaches, but outside, media, things like that — about trying to get a pitcher. But I don’t really see where we need one. Our guys have been throwing the ball great.

“Freddy and Bartolo were two great pickups in the offseason. Both those guys have been tremendous. I think we’re right where we want to be at.”

Mariano Rivera took the no-deal outcome as a positive.

“That gives the whole team confidence that the front office, the manager and everybody, has confidence in us,” he said. “We have a great team, so we just have to go out there and fight.”

*Derek Jeter’s right middle finger took a beating in this series. He took a grounder off of it Saturday night. Then Jake Arrieta hit him on the knuckle with a third-inning 91 mph fastball in this finale. Jeter came out an inning later for a pinch hitter.

“I just have problems gripping, which can affect throwing and swinging, which is a problem when you’re trying to play baseball.” Jeter said.

X-rays were negative. He’s day to day. He hopes to play tonight in Chicago. But Joe Girardi wasn’t so sure.

“Could it be a day or two? I think it could be a possibility,” Girardi said. “We’ll see how he feels tomorrow.”

*Freddy Garcia extended his career-high streak to 59 2-3 innings without allowing a homer, the longest streak now for starters in the majors. He also improved to 54-23 in day games, a .701 winning percentage, the best among active pitchers. Why’s he so good on the day shift?

“Maybe because the players go out and they don’t have no rest,” Garcia said, smiling. “I don’t know. I love to pitch day games. It’s always been that way.”

*Francisco Cervelli pinch hit for Jeter in the fourth and played two innings at second, his first time there in his career. His one chance resulted in a low throw to second, but he still got the force. Cano moved from DH to second in the seventh.

“(Girardi) told me to get ready and then I started putting my shin guards on and he said, ‘You’re going to play second base.’ I said, ‘Alright,’ ” Cervelli said. “I was surprised, but you just do it.”

*The Yankees finished the homestand 7-3. They are 9-1 now vs. Baltimore.

    That is something that Cervelli does provide…..he can play 2B or 3B in a pinch…..I do think he’s improved this year

  2. MTU July 31st, 2011 at 7:57 pm

    Cashman sounds pretty high on “el prodigio”.

    Can’t say I blame him.

    ;)

  3. Betsy July 31st, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    That was scary with Jeter…….I ranted at dinner about the Orioles, but my father just doesn’t get it. He thinks I’m too cynical – that they are punks, lol. Then again, he also thinks players today are wimpy for complaining about playing both games of a double header. Well I just told him that the good old days really weren’t so good and that as far as DH’s go, the horse is already out of the barn……..

  4. Betsy July 31st, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    I still don’t get why Banuelos was promoted off of his year this year……the Yankees always seem to rush their prospects with not so great results

  5. Betsy July 31st, 2011 at 8:00 pm

    Meaning, I think the O’s are punks and have no compunction about hitting opposing players – led by the manager ____ Showalter (which is what I called him at dinner).

  6. mick July 31st, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    Anybody seen the movie Dinner for Schmucks?

  7. G-C July 31st, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    Banuelos is the exact type of guy who I think could take advantage of a change of scenery and really take off.

    Him, Montero, and Betances are really uber-prospects in terms of their talent. All three of those guys have major league ready tools right now. Its all a matter of refinement.

    Manny will probably have to throw more strikes in AAA than in AA to succeed, and I suspect that’s what he’ll do.

  8. Crawdaddy July 31st, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    “I still don’t get why Banuelos was promoted off of his year this year……the Yankees always seem to rush their prospects with not so great results”

    I don’t know how you can say they rushed Banuelos. Going back to last year, he spent almost a full year in AA ball. Also, don’t judge a promotion strictly based on their stats. Ballclubs look much deeper into the prospect then what his stat line looks like.

  9. Crawdaddy July 31st, 2011 at 8:09 pm

    Also, it will be interesting to see how Banuelos responds to working with a pitching coach that was a southpaw ML pitcher in Aldred.

  10. G. Love July 31st, 2011 at 8:12 pm

    mick,

    I’ve seen it and I think I know exactly where you’re going with it, lol. Excellent choice of guest.

    As for the deadline, I hope the non-moves rallies the troops this week and lets them know no one is coming to save them (other than Arod).

    This team is used to getting guys at the deadline who are supposed to have impact. Instead, it’s all hands on deck. I like it.

    I don’t like how the Yankees were treated in trade discussions. I don’t see what the Indians gave up for Ubaldo being even close to what the Yankees were being forced to give up.

    I’m glad we still have Nova and if Montero comes up and hits, I’ll be glad we kept him. That said, I’m still not sure they’ll promote other than a token Sept. callup.

  11. Betsy July 31st, 2011 at 8:16 pm

    GLove you sink to new levels when you call my parents schmucks…….go crawl back under your rock, worm

  12. Betsy July 31st, 2011 at 8:16 pm

    You two are twins in a womb…….

  13. mick July 31st, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    Barring injuries, Colon and Garcia have earned playoff starts. The question might be AJ or Nova for the 4th starter, if needed. Hughes is a project at this point going thru ST. He shouldn’t be on the playoff roster. What was the need for a Rodriguez or an iffy Ubaldo?

  14. mick July 31st, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    GLove you sink to new levels when you call my parents schmucks……

    Now we are communicating…

  17. Laura - I Bleed Blue July 31st, 2011 at 8:20 pm

    Cashman really has low expectations for AJ if he considers what he’s done this year as “improvement”.

  18. mick July 31st, 2011 at 8:22 pm

    I would love to see Nova take AJ’s start in the playoffs.

  19. Tom in N.J. July 31st, 2011 at 8:22 pm

  20. mick July 31st, 2011 at 8:24 pm

    The Hughes experiment is almost over. Nova will not be sent back down.
    Someone has to go down when Alex returns and it will be a pitcher.

  21. LGY July 31st, 2011 at 8:24 pm

    I’m going with regular ol ice cream tonight so Nick can stop mocking my dessert choices :mad:

    With gummy bear topping to show my support for Cashman and his huggable prospects.

    LD will be up to new lows .
    Now there’s an honest man…

  24. G-C July 31st, 2011 at 8:26 pm

    So let me get this straight.

    Ivan Nova throws 7 innings of 2 run ball against a terrible offense yesterday, often working out of trouble, and he’s commended as if we saw the second coming of Pedro Martinez’s 17 strikeout game in 1999.

    But Phil Hughes tosses 6 innings of 2 run ball against a terrible offense, working out of trouble often, and in 2 of three starts before that had tossed 6 innings of 2 run ball and 5 innings of 2 run ball, and he’s essentially a worthless piece of garbage?

    I’m not sure I follow.

  25. stuart a July 31st, 2011 at 8:27 pm

    aj has improved over last year. again lastyear was 1 of the worst statistically for a yankee starter in there history. for a 30 + start season aj had the worst #’s ever…..

    look it up. they had no options so they had to use him and even today with his contract are stcuk with him. if he is starting gae m2 of the playoffs I will be pissed….

    stats in the minors are often innacurate. remember defensively there are deficincies and yes with plate discipline it can skew pitchers K potential….

  26. blake July 31st, 2011 at 8:27 pm

    be nice guys….

    AJ has improved this year…..he was terrible last year and he’s been a pretty consistent back end starter this year…..forget about his contract and adjust your expectations to a #4 starter and it’s a lot easier to feel ok about AJ.

    Banuelos is going to be really young in AAA…..an ideal plan for him to me would be to put him at SWB and just see how he does….if he responds to the promotion and takes off and they think he can help down the stretch and post season then call him up and let him get a taste of the bigs. Then start him at AAA next year for a full season at SWB….let him try to get 175 or so innings. Then he’ll be ready for the big league rotation if all goes to plan in the spring of 2013 at 22 years old……

  28. blake July 31st, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    G-C,
    I think it’s the process more than the results….Nova is getting a lot more swings and misses and just looks better out there….stuff looks better, looks more confident and comfortable etc….Hughes isn’t missing any bats…..he should have give up more runs that he did in that game but Gardner threw a guy out at the plate.

  29. mick July 31st, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    In a perfect world with perfect logic you would be right G C but it’s not as simple as that.
    If you had your choice to start a playoff game today, would you take Nova over Hughes?

  30. blake July 31st, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    Rasmus 2-4 with a 2B against the Rangers :( luckily the Jays had to gut their system to get him…..oh wait :( again.

  31. mick July 31st, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    what’s wrong with twins in a room or womb?

  32. mick July 31st, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    AJ has kept them in games and is nowhere near the debacle he was last year.
    He will probably get game 3.
    Game 4 is the interesting one…

  33. G-C July 31st, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    Nova induced 8 swinging strikes yesterday.

    Hughes induced 10 swinging strikes in his terrible start against Seattle.

    I’m sorry, I just don’t see it.

    I understand the logic, Blake, for sure. I understand that people think Hughes doesn’t look “crisp.” But I really believe this is a situation in which expectations are distorting how people are evaluating the results he’s put forth so far.

    Gun to my head, as of tomorrow, I probably start Nova in a playoff game. But this is basically ST for Hughes, and he has the ability to be so much better than Nova as he continues to build arm strength that any arguments for taking him out of the rotation just don’t make sense.

    ESPECIALLY because his starts since he’s come back have looked a hell of a lot like the starts that Nova was giving them all year long.

  34. blake July 31st, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    G-C,

    I hope you’re right….just what I’ve seen so far though is a guy that can’t sustain his velo past the first couple innings and a guy that has no pitch to go to get the hitter out…..I’ve said many times that I still believe in hughes long term and I do…..its just getting “late early” this year.

  35. Yankee Trader July 31st, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    On July 30 2006, the Yankees acquired Bobby Abreu and Cory Lidle from the Philadelphia Phillies for C.J. Henry, Matt Smith, Jesus Sanchez and Carlos Monasterios.

    Are any of those players traded to the Phillies still playing baseball?

  36. blake July 31st, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    That said……they do have an 8 game cushion right now on a playoff spot…..so they can afford Hughes more time if they belief there is a chance he finds his form…..Nova deseres to stay on merit though and that’s the tough part.

  37. mick July 31st, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    Ideally, we are auditioning 3 starters for a potential 4th game start in the playoffs.
    That is depth.
    Thank goodness we didn’t have to mortgage the farm for a Harden or a Bedard.
    That is desperation.

    _______________________________________

    I feel you Blake.

    Admittedly, I’m quite biased in Hughes’s favor.

    But think about it. Does Nova really have an “out” pitch himself?

    I don’t think Nova gives them any more of a chance to win a championship this season than Hughes does. And getting Hughes his reps this year, whether he’s able to become a viable postseason option (in the best case scenario) or build confidence and strength towards next year (best worst case scenario) is far, far more important to the Yankees franchise than getting Nova starts at the MLB level right now.

    Next year, the team probably will have a decision to make re: Nova, when it comes down to deciding whether to bring back a veteran like Freddy or stick with Ivan long term.

    I don’t see any decision that pits Phil Hughes against Ivan Nova (and that ultimately subtracts Hughes) as being whatsoever beneficial to this team both in the short and long term.

  42. mick July 31st, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    Right now Hughes and Nova are competing for the 5th starter job.
    Next year they will pick up a FA pitcher.
    Do the math…

  43. m1kew July 31st, 2011 at 8:55 pm

    I think the Yankees can try something different … 6 men in a 5 man rotation:

    Sabathia
    Garcia for ~80 pitches/Colon for ~ 80 pitches
    AJ
    Hughes
    Nova

    On the surface a rotation like this appears to need an addtional pitcher but I think the day that Garcia/Colon pitches will be a day of rest for the BP as each has shown they can throw 80 pitches and be reasonably effective. This plan puts less stress on Garcia and Colon, gives Hughes and Garcia chances to get stronger and keep Sabathia and AJ on a 5 day rotation.

    By the end of August the Yankees should be able to know which of their 6 starters can be productive for them down the stretch. I do not think this plan means they need an additonal BP arm as both Colon and Garcia have each needed relief. The problem is not with using Garcia and Colon on the same day. The problem is with relying on Hughes and Nova but the Yankees need to get them ready for the psot season and this plan seems to move in that direction while keeping Colon and Garcia as fresh as possible.

    G-C and Blake-

    Maybe the attached article written July 17th from The Yankee Analysts website, will help you in deciding which pitcher Hughes or Nova based on their preseason projections how they are rated going forward from July onward.

    Jerkface- Feel free to comment whether you agree or disagree with the article.

  45. mick July 31st, 2011 at 8:56 pm

    Nova’s FB is miles ahead of Phil’s and his CB makes Hughes look like a lollypop.
    There is no comparison.
    Phil came in out of shape, wasn’t as hungry as Nova.
    ST was 6 months ago.

  46. David July 31st, 2011 at 8:57 pm

    Why do people keep saying Hughes has a higher ceiling?

    From what I’ve read, Nova throws harder and keeps the ball down, and can maintain his velocity through the game better than Hughes.

    I know Nova doesn’t have the gaudy minor league stat history that Hughes does, but that doesn’t mean much once your in the majors, and if Nova can continue developing a cutter/slider to get the strikeouts, seems he’s got the better future. (?) Can someone elaborate?

  47. LGY July 31st, 2011 at 8:57 pm

    I went with the peanut butter banana ice cream.

    I just like it.

    Peanut butter, banana, and chocolate is the best combo IMO. The BLT Prime/Steak restaurants have quite possibly the best dessert on the planet that has those things (ok maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration :D )

    Peanut butter moouse covered in a chocolate shell with a scoop of banana ice cream on top. It’s better than any of the steaks they serve there.

    Ok, I’m done dreaming about that dessert. Back to baseball. :P

  48. blake July 31st, 2011 at 8:58 pm

    “But think about it. Does Nova really have an “out” pitch himself?”

    yea I mean I think his slider and curveball are both better than any secondary pitch Hughes currently has and his changeup might be as well. Also…he generates a lot of groundballs whereas Hughes generates a lot of flyballs…..if Hughes is beating guys with the fastball then he also gets a lot of pop ups and it kinda evens out….but if he’s not then he has trouble with that fly ball rate.

    ZiPS is just a projection system based on the player and historical data.

    The article is showing the ZiPS projection coming into the 2011 season, how the player has actually performed so far this season, and how ZiPS projects their performance for the rest of the season.

    With the state that Hughes is in, it basically means nothing at this point and with young players in general it is much less meaningful than veterans who have basically set a standard of performance.

    Hughes’s fastball, when he’s right, is one of the best five pitches in the entire major leagues.

    Its explosive and he commands it to both sides of the plate.

    He’s not “right” right now, obviously.

    But to suggest that Nova has half of Hughes’s potential is just absolutely not true.

  66. D-Man July 31st, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    “I don’t see any decision that pits Phil Hughes against Ivan Nova (and that ultimately subtracts Hughes) as being whatsoever beneficial to this team both in the short and long term.”

    It doesn’t tell you anything that Cash offered Hughes for Jimenez (without a physical, no less) and kept Nova off-limits?

  67. Jerkface July 31st, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    ZIPS projections just use historical data to project a player based on age and prior performance. It doesn’t include if Hughes fastball sucks or he is using a new curve or nova’s lack of deception etc. Those things would be included tiny as factors which led to the statistics shoved into the projection.

    I think Hughes still has more upside than Nova so I want him in the rotation for now. I trust Garcia to be solid and Colon to be above average to great at times.

  68. Eroc July 31st, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    At some point, Phil has to actually do it rather than live off his 2006 scouting reports. These are the Yankees… he has already been given more rope than most prospects ever will. Time is running out. Hell, he might not even keep his rotation spot this year. Girardi clearly implied there is a competition.

    Time to stop speaking about Hughes in hyperbolic terms and look at his results.

  69. LGY July 31st, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    Yankee Trader,

    Any projection system right now is going have Hughes performing better for the rest of the season than Nova for a few reasons.

    Hughes has a track record of successful performance in the big leagues while Nova thus far has out-pitched his peripherals.

    But any statistical evaluation can’t possibly take into account Hughes’ arm trouble, decreased velocity, etc that is happening right now. This decision to go with Hughes or Nova is really going to have to made without the stats.

    Hughes I am really concerned about what he has got in the tank right now and if he is actually going to improve his arm strength at all.

    And even though Nova is pitching better than his peripheral numbers would suggest it does seem like he’s improving and trying to incorporate more swing and miss pitches into his repertoire (also Tom’s post comparing the ERA+ of Nova and Pineda is awesome!)

    Hughes’s fastball, when he’s right, is one of the best five pitches in the entire major leagues.

    Its explosive and he commands it to both sides of the plate.

    He’s not “right” right now, obviously.

    But to suggest that Nova has half of Hughes’s potential is just absolutely not true.

    —————————————————-

    True but is Hughes at the point where we have to lower our expectations. Is his career over no but there is no guarantee that he can still fulfill his potential.

  71. G-C July 31st, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    “It doesn’t tell you anything that Cash offered Hughes for Jimenez (without a physical, no less) and kept Nova off-limits?”

    That’s nonsense.

    You don’t think Cashman would have traded Nova straight up for Jimenez?

    And how do you have any inkling that Hughes was offered for Jimenez?

    Unless you’re involved intimately in either organization (and forgive me if you are) there wasn’t anything reported to that degree.

  73. yanks 27 July 31st, 2011 at 9:34 pm

    The fact that Hughes is even compared to Nova now shows how much he has fallen. The guy was supposed to be a mainstay in the rotation, a legit frontline starter. He is now in competition with a guy whose upside is a middle/back end guy in the AL. The organization feels the same way obviously, considering Cash put like 7 guys off-limits in the Ubalo trade and tried to center a deal around Hughes

    The upside and ceiling people speak of re: Hughes is based on his minor league record, but that’s a long time ago at this point. Nova has clearly improved and Phil has regressed. Phil can’t hold onto his secondary pitches while Nova has several. Nova also has better stuff and throws quite a bit harder. I’m not saying that with work Phil can’t be a solid pitcher, but he has a long way to go.

    The only 2 players moved that were interesting to me were Beltran and Fister…

    I still think Cash should pick up a bat before Aug 31…I suspect Matsui and Melky will be available thru waivers.

    Whether it be Texas, Detroit, Boston, or Philly, the opponent line-ups are going to be stacked and difficult for any pitcher to hold down. We need to make sure we have enough offense to get over the streak y play of Tex, Swish, and others in the play-offs. Matsui or Melky and Montero are definitely needed. This year–offense will be key to success.

    If Banny was promoted, Betances should have been as well. An arm like that might also help in play-offs if he shows command in AAA.

  97. Betsy July 31st, 2011 at 10:05 pm

    Nova may not be just a back-end starter – he could be at least a middle of the rotation guy. I don’t think Hughes has any rope with this team anymore – showing up out of shape was inexcusable and didn’t do him any favors. Nova is well-regarded by the organization for numerous reasons and Phil just hasn’t made any progress in the arears where he is/was deficient.

    Hughes may have been, as Cashman conceded, “a little out of shape,” but he also showed up early to spring training, ready to work and anxious to improve upon his second half of last season.

    I seem to also remember a couple of seasons ago, Hughes being praised for his off-season workouts at some facility out west (the name escapes me right now).

    My point is, the constant reference to Phil going to the “Fat Farm” is meant to denigrate him and make it seem like he is lazy and not working hard enough. I did some googling. Seems only Joel Sherman was on this story, and only Joel Sherman has ever accused Phil Hughes of having a poor work ethic.

    Sometimes things don’t smoothly for these young pitchers. Time will tell if Hughes can put things back together. But it’s ridiculous to keep making it sound like he’s been a “bad boy” because he’s not quite met expectations, at least not for long enough. The beginning of 2010 was not a mirage.

    None other than Verlander had a positively crappy year one year after having a stellar one in which his innings pitched went up a lot. It would seem he didn’t forget how to pitch or lose his talent. I am not saying Hughes is Verlander in any way shape or form, other than they both have ML talent and both have had their troubles. Perhaps, just perhaps, we can give Phil Hughes a break here.

    And if he never regains his form, I guarantee you he didn’t do it on purpose to disappoint overzealous fans.

    He gives us a good amount of home-runs, he gives up a good amount of walks, opposing players have gotten a lot of hits off of him, half the strikeouts than innings pitched, amounting in an awful 1.44 WHIP but a very respectable 4.01 ERA and a great 9-4 record in 18 games, and 17 started. All of this out of one of the youngest guys in the majors.

    How would trading Felix help the Mariners “much sooner?” They wouldn’t trade him for a big name hitter because they can’t afford it. They would trade him for half a dozen high-ceiling minor league players that wouldn’t help for several years to come. Felix is good RIGHT NOW. He can help the team more than anything the Mariners could trade for. If it weren’t for him they would have 10+ more loses and 10+ less wins.

    I understand you want him, but don’t try justifying why it would help the Mariners simply because he would absolutely help the Yankees. I want him, so does every single other team in baseball. The Mariners are wise to keep him.

    Wang had that sinker which people would simply nub through the infielders for hits, therefor he would indeed give up a lot of hits, and raise his WHIP. He would also get a lot of double plays because of that. He also never gave up too many homers or walked too many people.

    I was never nervous with Wang on the mound, even though all he had was the sinker that some teams would have 6 consecutive hits off of.

    I definitely want to see more of Nova.

    Red Sox may have a playoff rotation of Lester, Beckett and Bedard (if healthy he is #2 quality) which beats CC, Colon and (pick one Garcia, AJ, Hughes, Nova).

    IMO, none of the last choices for # 3 would do well in the playoffs against good hitting teams, and CC has struggled against Texas and Boston this year.

    Red Sox gave up a lot for a 2 month rental with questionable health, but what they gave up was at positions they had plenty of depth. It may well be that Bedard does not pitch well the rest of the season. If thats true, given the concerns over Buchholz, Lackeys balky elbow, and the fact Beckett has not been effective in September/October since 2007, they would not have anything better than what the Yankees could put out there.

    This might be what Cashman is hanging his hat on. That and A-Rod being able to return hitting for power, and perhaps Cano recovering his plate discipline from 2010. Maybe the dice come up his way. If not, Girardi won’t have to worry about where to play Posada to get his bat in the lineup at NL parks. LOL.

    The M’s could have gotten a truckload of top prospects/young major leaguers, then if/when they contended they’d have that 19+ mil to pick up an ace if necessary.

    Well the Premier Roster in baseball shouldn’t go out and lay an egg against the Sox this week. Given they are 1-8 so far this year in matchups they should start winning against their prime competitor.

  164. lounge lizard August 1st, 2011 at 3:44 am

    I seriously don?t understand how Ivan always tends to keep us in the game, and how he gets the out just at the right time.

    He gives us a good amount of home-runs, he gives up a good amount of walks, opposing players have gotten a lot of hits off of him, half the strikeouts than innings pitched, amounting in an awful 1.44 WHIP but a very respectable 4.01 ERA and a great 9-4 record in 18 games, and 17 started. All of this out of one of the youngest guys in the majors.

    I just don?t get it.

    ___________________________________________________

    That’s a very good question. And the answer mostly comes down to the one element you are missing from all of the stats you mention: the number of (non-homer) extra base hits.

    Before today, Freddy Garcia had pitched 113 innings and given up 37 doubles and triples combined. Nova had pitched 98 innings and given up just 22.

    So while Nova’s WHIP doesn’t look good, his OPS-against (which captures all on base and slugging factors, not just homers) was actually slightly better than Freddy’s (.733 to .740). Again, before Freddy’s performance today, which probably has them about equal.

  165. PacoDooley August 1st, 2011 at 4:08 am

    Regarding the trade deadline, the Yankees have to feel like they made their impact acquisitions without giving anything up. They recently added Hughes to a team that was winning, plus Chavez. They will get A-Rod back in a few weeks, and that is a bigger acquisition than pretty much anyone will make during the waiver-trade period. Finally, at the trade deadline they added a great starter in Nova. Other teams would love to be adding that much talent – the key is staying healthy so that they can add rather than swap players to the DL.

  166. Vineyard Yankee August 1st, 2011 at 5:15 am

    It’s really too bad that Cashman wasn’t in on Pence. Could have had him for peanuts and he would have been a nice addition to the OF / DH rotation which would have made Jones expendable.

  167. Ghostwriter August 1st, 2011 at 6:51 am

    Despite some of the complaints on this forum, the Yanks had a productive July, winning 16 against 11 losses. With A-Rod out of the lineup, the Yanks are 13 and 7. Now, we have Chavez and Soriano back, with only about 2 weeks, or so, until A-Rod returns. Things look like they are shaping up quite nicely for the Yanks, heading into the stretch.

    BTW, the Starks of the world, who declared the Yanks the losers of the trade deadline, may want to take note of the fact that the last time that the Yanks stood pat at the TD in 1999, they won the orld Series.

  168. blake August 1st, 2011 at 7:17 am

    I’ve been saying all year that the Yanks didn’t need to trade their top young players for marginal upgrades ……..they kept Montero,.Banuelos, Betances, and Nova so that’s a winner to me. No trade is always better than bad trade

  169. Ys Guy August 1st, 2011 at 7:29 am

    well played, cash. if there’s nothing available at a reasonable cost that upgrades the team, you pass, dont make a trade just because the red socks made a trade. cash will pick up some talent that clears waivers next month.

    i was all over that this year blake, i said during ST that they already got the bump from buck last year and this year their lack of talent, especially pitching talent would kill them. a good manager cant win without players. but most people wanted to believe that guys like matuzs and tillman were going to improve them. they picked up 2 guys who were clearly done in d lee and vlad and fantasized about contending. the orioles who were our biggest enemy until about 1998 are a dead franchise right now. i cry no tears for them.

  173. upstate kate August 1st, 2011 at 7:42 am

    That is good news GB

    The Os are a bunch of punks in my book. They are always hitting our guys, especially Jeter. They did the same to the red sox. Their motto seems to be “if you can’t beat them, hit them”

  174. blake August 1st, 2011 at 7:44 am

    The Orioles biggest problem is that their prospects are busting like crazy……Wieters is a good player ….good defender but he was hyped up as a can’t miss bat and Matuz is lost apparently. The Yanks scored 12 runs in the first inning off Britton (though I still think he will be good).

    But yea…..a manager can only do so.much…..you need players to win…..I just can’t stand Bucks’s attitude…..they want respect before they’ve earned it.

    Jack Curry of the YES Network hears that the Yankees wanted a shoulder MRI for Ubaldo Jimenez, but the Rockies declined (Twitter link).

    So it wasn’t a routine physical the Yanks requested.

  177. Gary August 1st, 2011 at 7:57 am

    I simply can’t believe we made no moves. Reminds me of the winter. This is a good, but not a championship pitching staff, and we really also needed a bat that could give us a decent off the bench or DH. Guys are old and they are going to break down as the innings mount, Hughes and AJ present alot more questions then answers right now.

  178. Yankee Trader August 1st, 2011 at 7:57 am

    From NY Post Joel Sherman. More Cashman quotes why the Yankees made no trades:

    Do the Yankees have an obvious No. 2 starter for the postseason? No, they do not. But the Yankees saw the Rangers win the AL title last year with a rotation much like they have now of an unquestioned ace (Cliff Lee/CC Sabathia) and then a lot of question marks. Can Bartolo Colon or Freddy Garcia or Nova do for one series what Colby Lewis did by dominating the Yankees in the ALCS last year?

    The Yankees will have to hope so because the biggest issue was that there was no one clearly better available. The best was Jimenez. And the Yanks asked this question internally: If there were a Division Series Game 2 that had to be won tomorrow, would the team feel more comfortable with Bartolo Colon or Jimenez? It was not: “Who do you want for the next three years?” It was simply: “Who do you feel most confident about right now?” The answer all around the table was Colon.

    “I was not going to make a move because we are the Yanks and we are expected to make a move. It had to make sense and nothing made sense to us.”

  179. jpb173 August 1st, 2011 at 7:57 am

    I hope that the Yankees don’t screw up Manny Banuelos like they did Joba Chamberlain and Phil Hughes. Neither Joba nor Hughes were allowed to stay in the minors long enough to get 150 innings in a single season. As a result both of them had to endure the “Joba rules” which retarded their development. Both have been paying for that mistake ever since they were put into a major league rotation without building endurance in the minors.

    In Banuelos case he needs to reach 130 innings this season and 150-155 innings next season to be ready for a 2013 callup. The appendectomy he had last year slowed him down by one full season as he had gotten to 109 innings in 2009.

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

    What moves were to be made? It can reasonably argued that the Yankees one need was a true #2 starter. Wasn’t one out there to be had. If what you need isn’t on the market, does you no good to chase that which you don’t need.

    Yanks wanted someone cheap, its the mode that Cash operates in right now. There were some good pitchers out there, but it’s a supply and demand thing. Lots of demand and short supply and clubs aren’t going to give away star players. Also our DH is a joke, tired of seeing him taking pitches and then striking out or hitting into a DP. He should have retired last year. I am going to cringe everytime now when Colon ruins over to cover first. To me the Yanks need to prove this week that they are a championship club by beating Boston.

    That’s impossible. October is when you prove you are a championship club. Beating Boston in the 1st week of August means no more than Boston beating the Yankees in April, May and June or whenever they played.

    You may have a point on the DH, but I think going forth you might end up seeing a little less Posada and a little more Chavez and/or Montero.

  187. Yankee Trader August 1st, 2011 at 8:21 am

    Hughes pitches Tuesday facing John Danks. That outing could well determine whether he stays in the rotation, goes to the bullpen, or returns to the minors with the one option he has left.

  192. I Am Winning August 1st, 2011 at 8:26 am

    jpb173,

    The hell with innings cap entirely. The “Joba Rules” were specifically named after Joba to protect his precious arm, yet he still had to have TJ surgery. For the most part, if it all, those rules are garbage. One season you pitch 100 innings(which they are already designed to do). Another season you pitch 150, and in the majors you pitch 200. That is one year in the minors, maybe two, which is not very long. Now, that’s for a player that’s on the fact track to the majors of course.

    Respectfully, the Yanks are 1-8 against Boston this year, it’s the first of August and they have played 110 games this year. Boston is the frontrunner, if you can’t beat the frontrunner then you go play everybody else at their home park. Games in August do matter.

  199. blake August 1st, 2011 at 8:34 am

    Here is a list of players I would have had interest in at the deadline :

    Ubaldo: price was too high and Colorado was acting shady about his medicals.

    Rasmus: was traded cheaply but it would have been difficult for the Yanks to match the big league help that the Cards got for now.

    Beltran: would have cost Betances to match the Giants offer

    Pence : would have cost more than Beltran likley.

    Adams: bullpen is pretty stout now without him.

    Thornton not sure he was available

    Danks: not available.

    Kuroda: marginal upgrade and wouldn’t leave LA

    Just not a lot of matches there and if the Yanks feel that their internal options are just as good without giving anything up then Im cool with that.

  200. Ys Guy August 1st, 2011 at 8:35 am

    what does a guy who was a very good reliever 2 years ago have to do with today…well he seems to be able to show velocity for about one or two innings. and he’s been a good reliever before….. am i missing something?

  201. Yankee Trader August 1st, 2011 at 8:35 am

    The one pitcher that I was hoping the Yankees would get to shore up the bullpen, if Soriano going forward did not return to 2010 form, was Micheael Adams. He is murder on both lefties and righties and would have negated any need for another LOOGY!

    Texas gave up their 2nd best LHP [#5 prospect] in their system. The Padres would have asked for Banuelos. The Rangers also gave up righty Joe Wieland who had just pitched a no-hitter against the Padres minor league team.

    No reliever, save Rivera, would be worth giving up our two best prospects.

  202. Betsy August 1st, 2011 at 8:37 am

    Yeah, he has no life on his FB and can’t put hitters away. He’s not going to become a better pitcher just by being in the pen – I think he’s better off going to AAA.

  203. blake August 1st, 2011 at 8:38 am

    Yanks are 1-8 against Boston and only 2 games back in the standings……they have been a better team than Boston against everyone else. Been sayin this all year but Boston’s WS chances are heavily dependent on Josh Beckett’s back holding up……even moreso now if Bucholtz can’t come back….which appears possible

  204. Ys Guy August 1st, 2011 at 8:39 am

    phil’s not going to help this team in scranton. i’d prefer he shows what he has in the pen first. if he’s got nothing, then you move him down. is ayala or wade that important that we cant try out a guy who helped us win a WS title out there?

  205. 86w183 August 1st, 2011 at 8:41 am

    Adams would have been a great get, but as Yankee Trader points out it was not an area of need, especially if Soriano comes back to anything close to his best.

    Can’t believe the Yanks are still carrying 13 pitchers…. make a decision boys! Noesi should be sent down to go back to starting at Scranton. Hughes and Nova are both needed to start this week.

    Two years ago the Red Sawx dominated the Yanks in the first half of the season. This year’s 1-8 mark is no more meaningful than it was two years ago. That said, a winning road trip would certainly be welcomed.

  206. upstate kate August 1st, 2011 at 8:42 am

    The next 3 series will be interesting. While I wouldn’t say they were must win games at this point, the Yankees could gain some ground against the sox and angels if they play well.

  207. Betsy August 1st, 2011 at 8:42 am

    Ys Guy, another major reason I don’t think he should be in the pen is because he needs to pitch – he needs innings. The pen is fine without him, but if the Yankees still want him to be a starter for them, he has to work on pitches that he can’t do in the pen. Also, I don’t think the he’d be very good in the pen nor do I think the pen needs another arm – he’d just be a 6th inning guy.

  208. J. Alfred Prufrock August 1st, 2011 at 8:43 am

    Joba should have been let loose on the rotation in 2010.

    The violence done by the myopic decision to end his tenure as a starter before it really began caused a chain of events & bad decisions that are still fighting to get out from under.

    One crucial way they can demonstrate they have “learned” from that mistake is to revisit Joba the Starter upon his return, & to send a pitcher down when his development necessitates it, instead of shuffling him off to the bullpen.

    Next season should be an interesting one for the rotation. Hughes may be going through that year after thing, & may be at full-strength next season. If we could have first-half 2010 Hughes back, that would be enormous. Nova will be ready to go; Noesi is in the mix as well. Manny & Dellin are going to be knocking on the door sooner than later. & who says we can’t think about re-signing old friend Andy Pettitte for insurance?? He wasn’t exactly falling apart when he left the game of baseball. It’s a shame that gem he pitched in the playoffs was wasted in a losing effort.

    We have options. & of course, we have CC :D.

    same thing as the last time phil went to the pen… dont think he’ll be good at it, and we probably dont need him, he needs innings and starts…. how’d that work out?

  211. blake August 1st, 2011 at 8:44 am

    Trader,

    Yea they would have asked for either Betances or Banuelos…..that seems to be the running theme….everyone asks for Montero, Betances, Banuelos or Nova. Not worth it if Soriano comes back ok……..

    The Braves made perhaps the best trade of all in getting Michael Bourn for nothing. Jordan Schafer has never lived up to expectations.

    While not adding a power bat, he’s won two GG’s, leads NL in stolen bases the last 2 years and has improved his BA and OBP, and will make an ideal leadoff hitter for the Braves for at leat now and 2012, when he becomes a Boras FA.

    Wonder how he would look in pinstripes, moving Swisher to DH if the Yankees had traded for him???

    pitchers get injured all the time. they get injured when you baby them, they get injured when you rush them, they get injured when they stay down or when they come up.

    prospects bust, they do it all the time. many many more prospects bust then make it.

    im sick of all this ‘they rushed him’, ‘they babied him’ crap. they are pitchers, you pitch them until they need surgery then if they get better, you pitch them again, thats baseball.

    if phil is just one tiny bit better than the last guy in the back of the bullpen, then you put him there. if you want him as a starter next year, you worry about that next year. right now he seems healthy and he can help us in the pen. if he cant help us in the pen, they you move him down and bring up the next guy.

    remember when the tigers had bonderman and verlander in the minors, bonderman was THE guy and verlander was just a guy with freakish velocity…how’d that turn out?

    Trader,

    Love the Bourn move…..pretty much exactly what he Braves needed…..leadoff guy and somebody better than Mclouth.

    Tim Dierkes list of players who might be dealt, claimed or might clear waivers, from MLBTR’s:

    •Rays: Johnny Damon, Kelly Shoppach

    ___________________________________________________________________________

    I’d love to see Johnny back on the club, he can make a good contribuiton. Runs the bases well, has good knowledge of the strike zone. Puts the ball in play and works pitchers well.
