No second lefty for division series

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

Our good friend David Waldstein is reporting that Raul Valdes will not be on the roster for the division series. He’ll instead go down to Tampa to stay loose in case the Yankees want him in a later round. My guess is the Yankees would have carried him if they were playing Texas.

No Valdes eliminates the possibility of a second lefty in the Yankees bullpen, because not only is Aaron Laffey not going to make the roster, he no longer has a locker in the Yankees clubhouse.

Notable players who do still have a full locker: Valdes, Chris Dickerson, Austin Romine, Francisco Cervelli, Luis Ayala and Hector Noesi.

Notable players who do not still have a full locker: Laffey, Greg Golson, Ramiro Pena, Brandon Laird, Dellin Betances, George Kontos, Andrew Brackman and Scott Proctor.

    Our other lefties are not very good, so it’s no big deal. If we advance, it’s not like we should have tremendous faith in Valdes anyway……….

  2. mick September 29th, 2011 at 3:05 pm

    Noesi over Ayala?

  3. m September 29th, 2011 at 3:07 pm

    I’m okay with Dickerson on, Valdes off.

    I’m thinking they go with Colon over Ayala.

    CC, Nova, Garcia, AJ, Colon, Hughes, Wade, Boone, Soriano, Robertson, Mariano.

    I feel like I left someone off. Joe can have a quicker hook if he has multiple inning guys in the bullpen. He can pull guys early without having to worry about straining the back of the pen.

  4. blake September 29th, 2011 at 3:08 pm

    CB,

    Totally agree…..this platoon stuff is killing me. They didn’t give Montero a real chance to prove anything against RHP this month. He’s in scoring position every time he steps up and especially at the stadium.

    As you say…..you combat power pitching with plus bat speed.

    You guys championing for Montero to play need to wake up.

    He has more at bats against righties than lefties, and is batting .216/.310/.568 off them. You don’t rely on numbers like that for the postseason.

  7. CountryClub September 29th, 2011 at 3:08 pm

    Betsy September 29th, 2011 at 3:01 pm
    So what’s your point, Country Club? My point is that Joe is not making these decisions by himself……but hey, he was ripped apart last night, so why not continue the theme?

    ———————-

    My point was that you are correct. Cash does have a say in roster construction. But so do other people. It’s not just Girardi and Cash.

  8. Irreverent Discourse September 29th, 2011 at 3:08 pm

    This is exactly why I’ve been telling you all year Montero has no place on the rosster, at best he’s a situational fill-in.

  9. Captain Clutch September 29th, 2011 at 3:10 pm

    Girardi should of said for game 1 my DH is Posada. Naming him as your everyday DH makes absolutely no sense. Posada was benched for a reason and one hit on a fastball right down the middle shouldn’t change anything. Girardi is doing the Tigers a favor by leaving Montero on the bench and DHing Posada.

  10. CountryClub September 29th, 2011 at 3:11 pm

    I would be more than happy with his 4 hr’s and .878 OPS vs righties.

    Like I wrote before, I’m fine with Jorge getting the 1st couple of starts and I hope he does well. But if he’s 0-8 with 4 k’s and 4 groundouts, we’re going to see Montero in game 3.

  11. PhiltheThrill September 29th, 2011 at 3:11 pm

    He has small samples against righties, but almost a 1.00 separation between AVG and OBP and a big SLG. Learn what the numbers mean.

    He has 4 homers off of RHP is a small sample. Not even 100 ab’s.

  12. Betsy September 29th, 2011 at 3:11 pm

    So Montero is already a proven player weeks into his MLB career? I do not get why there is this URGENT need to see Montero right now………..as if he’s a HOFer already

  13. Irreverent Discourse September 29th, 2011 at 3:12 pm

    They didn’t give Montero a real chance to prove anything against RHP this month.

    42 PA’s against RHP, 27 PA’s against LHP. They gave him more chances against righties than lefties and he didn’t hit. No surprise at all he’s not starting.

  14. Betsy September 29th, 2011 at 3:12 pm

    M, I don’t think Colon has anything left……..AJ is the long man, so really I don’t see a role for him.

  15. LGY September 29th, 2011 at 3:12 pm

    Cowboy Joe West named crew chief for the DBacks-Brewers series.

    MLB is a complete disaster when it comes to umpires.

  16. pkyankfan69 September 29th, 2011 at 3:13 pm

    WHAT?!?!? Scott Proctor isn’t making the postseason roster?!?!?!?

    THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!!!!

  17. tk September 29th, 2011 at 3:13 pm

    Assuming Montero’s 37 AB’s versus righties are meaningful: he’s OPS’d .877 against them while Posada has OPS’d .694 overall during the same time (since Sept. 3rd).

    ———–

    Good grief. So you have to be a HOF caliber player to be a better choice than a 40 yr old Posada?

    C’mon, you’re smarter than that.

    Posada has not hit flame throwers very well this season. Montero has been hitting the ball hard against everybody lately regardless which hand they use to throw the ball.

  19. m September 29th, 2011 at 3:14 pm

    I don’t want to get into an argument.

    But I just want to state the obvious that Posada has 473 plate appearances to Montero’s 0.

    I’m thinking that Jorge’s major league and postseason experience might be in play here.

  20. mick September 29th, 2011 at 3:14 pm

    Why can’t Joe change his mind?
    He might have said Posada dhs but that could be out of respect.
    You might see Arod DH game 2 with Chavez at 3rd.

  21. CB September 29th, 2011 at 3:15 pm

    For this series, Montero is no worse than the Yankees third best bat. In fact given how Granderson’s been slumping (and Alex as well) there’s an argument to be made Montero is the team’s second best hitter for this series.

    I’m not exaggerating either. He’s that good.

    It’s not trivial in any way to take a team’s third best offensive weapon and put him on the bench just because he hasn’t been on the earth long enough.

    Yes lack of experience is an issue – it mitigates Montero’s tools and talents – but the Yankees are a better team with Montero in the line up – that’s the bottom line.

    All of these arguments could have been made against the Marlins playing Cabrera in the post season in 2003.

    And I wish they had given the result of that world series.

  22. upstate kate September 29th, 2011 at 3:15 pm

    Proctor has already done his job

  23. PhiltheThrill September 29th, 2011 at 3:16 pm

    Montero has already shown the earmarks of being an elite hitter. The bat speed, power and hitability are all there. And he’s had good ABs and results against good pitching. You play him because he is one of the best hitters on the team, and you forget that he’s 21 and only gonna get better. He’s good enough to help the Yanks win right now.

    The avg and obp aren’t there against righties but the ops is still a not too shabby .878

    Next year Montero will be allowed to show what he can do.

    —————————————————

    So next year his fake platoon splits with disappear? And in April if they start playing him everyday what will Joe’s reasons being for last year when he “couldn’t” hit righties. What will have changed from Sept to April?

    ——

    Nothing will have changed regarding Montero except that Posada won’t be on the roster. “If” Girardi is asked about the platoon split of Montero, he’ll probably just come up with some excuse that he’s had experience now or worked in the off season or they’re getting him experience etc…

    I would have loved to see Montero get more ABs in september, hell I’d love to have seen him come up sooner, but it didn’t happen

  26. pat September 29th, 2011 at 3:16 pm

    ‘Scott Proctor isn’t making the postseason roster?!?!?!?’

    They should vote him a share just for saving the bullpen last night.

  27. G. Love September 29th, 2011 at 3:17 pm

    Just wanted to pop in & wish everyone good luck for the playoffs! Last night was the happiest I’ve ever been watching the Yankees lose a game.

    I have a good feeling about this team. Go Yankees!

  28. pat September 29th, 2011 at 3:18 pm

    Why not wait until Girardi doesn’t use Jesus to complain Jesus wasn’t used.

    Irreverent Discourse

    Your taking a moron’s myopic view of those #’s….ask Weaver how quick his bat is trying to bust him inside…

    The fact is he offers far more potential against a guy with elite stuff like Verlander than Po’ does and that is obvious. Pulling Posada’s #s against Verlander that majority of which were from 2/3 yrs ago does not take into account the obvious, that Jesus is an infinitely better hitter right now that Jorge. PERIOD.

    He should certainly be the game 1 DH as that represents sending out your very best lineup against there very best SP

  32. Betsy September 29th, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    CB, I’m sorry – Granderson has had an MVP year and I expect him to be huge in the post-season. Montero has been up for a few weeks. No way do I have more faith in Montero than Granderson.

  33. CB September 29th, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    “He has more at bats against righties than lefties, and is batting .216/.310/.568 off them. You don’t rely on numbers like that for the postseason.”

    You’re right. You don’t rely on those numbers at all. No meaningful statistical conclusion can be drawn from that sample of at bats.

    Decision making should be based on qualitative data in this situation more than quantitative because the quantitative data has large degrees of error and variability associated with it.

    Scott Proctor now ranks right there with Bucky F. Dent and Aaron F. Boone.
    What he did to RS Tiny Nation was priceless and he will forever get the credit for their Greatest Choke Of All Time.

    Next time they wise off remind them…

    People are fooling themselves if they think the Yankees aren’t pleased that the Sox are not there.

    They know the Sox are dangerous, and not having them in the playoffs increases their own odds.

    Verlander has 11 starts vs. NYY in his career, and has about a 4 ERA. They have run up pitch count against him in past; he’s evolved.

  50. ET September 29th, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    CB – No doubt.

    This is not a good matchup for most of our hitters. Montero is one of the few players who currently has the skill-set to match up with the Tigers power.

    Him and Cano are best equipped to deal with the Tigers pitchers.

  51. m September 29th, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    I thought Minaya was some Mets fan shlub. Then I hear Mike call him “Omar”

    Leyland claims that he will NOT pitch Verlander in game 4.

  57. Captain Clutch September 29th, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    I definitely thought that Montero would DH in game 1 and then they would make changes from game to game. If he didn’t look that good and Girardi wanted to try Posada in game 2 that’s fine. But it makes no sense too all of a sudden make Posada the everyday DH considering the fact that he hasn’t played much at all and he can only hit fastballs right over the plate. It seems like Montero had to hit .500 with 15 homeruns in order to be the everyday DH.

  58. CB September 29th, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    “No way do I have more faith in Montero than Granderson.”

    Betsy,

    Here’s the thing. I didn’t comment on what your subjective perception of the team is. I’m not commenting about Betsy’s beliefs.

    I can’t know what you’re thinking – and quite honestly – that’s not a particular priority of mine.

    So you can subjectively have faith in whoever you like. Believe me, I have no interest in trying to dissuade you from an article of faith (there’s no way to discuss those issues anyway…)

    I’m discussing the team and it’s needs. Not what I have a particular faith in. I could be completely wrong – but I don’t comment much – and mostly do so when I have something to say so if you want ignore my comment.

    So I stand by it. Montero is one of the single best hitters on the Yankees team right now. Not playing him decreases their chances of winning the world series.

    But again, people and organizations make decisions based on all sorts of biases and that’s what the yankees are just doing now. They (or most likely girardi) is overemphasizing experience.

    All that said – my comments are entirely outside of your particular belief system in this team so there’s really nothing to discuss. In fact if all there is to do is anchor ourselves entirely in our own subjective beliefs then it’s really not possible to discuss anything.

  59. LGY September 29th, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    Montero’s ability to consistently make hard contact is ridiculous.

    The only guy I would have considered starring Po against is Fister.

    But Joe made his decision and I hope Jorge can turn back the clock with the bright lights on and go out on top.

  60. m September 29th, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    Omah thinks the Yankees are cooked if they don’t win game 1. :roll:

  63. Betsy September 29th, 2011 at 3:29 pm

    Whatever CB……..either way, I think it’s hilarious that after a few weeks, Montero is a HOFer who is guaranteed to come up huge in the playoffs.

    In 2003 Cabrera hit 230 against righties and he played throughout the playoffs. Guess his ?issues? against righties weren?t enough to keep him from the lineup

  71. I Like Inge September 29th, 2011 at 3:31 pm

    Posada DHing versus Verlander. Wasting Montero’s bat on the bench versus the best pitcher in the AL. Verlander high 90s heat versus Posada. Not good.

  72. blake September 29th, 2011 at 3:32 pm

    “Montero’s ability to consistently make hard contact is ridiculous.”

    Honestly since he’s been called up only Cano has barreled the ball more frequently from what I’ve seen. He should be in the lineup…..at least against the hard throwing RHP

  73. Triple Short of a Cycle September 29th, 2011 at 3:32 pm

    Montero has a higher OPS against righties this year then Posada does

  74. mick September 29th, 2011 at 3:33 pm

  75. Melk Man September 29th, 2011 at 3:33 pm

    Fister is the one who will be a tougher matchup for Montero, not Verlander.

    Fister reminds me of James Shields – he can miss bats and is a guy who is going to mix in all his pitches and has a lot of quality off-speed stuff.

    Verlander can just sit high 90s with that slider and change all day and no one will touch him but Montero has the bat speed to get a hold of one.

  76. blake September 29th, 2011 at 3:33 pm

  77. CB September 29th, 2011 at 3:34 pm

    Betsy,

    As unpleasant as other people are to you. You yourself can be unbelievably unpleasant. And for no reason.

    You should exhibit more of the same courtesy’s to other that you are always saying should be extended to yourself.

    But let me guess – you’re just going to say “whatever…” or make some other snarky, rude response.

    I didn’t ask you to respond to anything I had to say. You were the one who chose to and did so rudely.

    On that note have a good day everyone.

  78. mick September 29th, 2011 at 3:34 pm

  80. Captain Clutch September 29th, 2011 at 3:36 pm

    I love Cano batting 3rd but Tex, Swish and Posada back to back isn’t good. Once you get past Arod the lineup is going to struggle to get guys on base and score runs. They really needed Montero at the bottom of the lineup.

  81. mick September 29th, 2011 at 3:36 pm

    40 year old children these days, I do declare…

  82. Eroc September 29th, 2011 at 3:36 pm

    “Montero has a higher OPS against righties this year then Posada does”

    Which defeats the argument that Posada can hit RHP so he should start.

    Montero will be their 2nd or 3rd best bat in this series with his tools. There is no reason for him not to start at all. Watching a gimpy A-Rod flail away at Verlander’s heat or Posada flail away at changes int he dirt is not going to be pretty.

    If Grandy doesn’t break out of his funk, he’s going to be striking out like crazy against the quality off speed pitches of the Tigers

  84. Betsy September 29th, 2011 at 3:37 pm

    Blake, until the guy split, he did nothing but attack me…….every time I posted, he would rip into it simply because he disagreed with me. I don’t forget that stuff. Why didn’t he just ignore me? Hell yeah I resent him……and I was being honest, not trying to bait. I don’t think his stuff is funny at all.

  85. Irreverent Discourse September 29th, 2011 at 3:38 pm

    Triple – That’s not a fair comparison. Who did they have to play instead of Cabrera?

  86. mick September 29th, 2011 at 3:38 pm

    So let’s not even play game 1.
    Go straight to game 2…

    Posada is 2 for 6 off of a pitcher he supposedly “can’t hit because he throws too hard”. This was back in May when Posada wasn’t hitting at all.

  94. Triple Short of a Cycle September 29th, 2011 at 3:44 pm

    Triple ? That?s not a fair comparison. Who did they have to play instead of Cabrera?

    ———————————————————–

    Probably Todd Hollandsworth but thats not the point. Posada is not a good matchup against guys that throw as fast as Verlander does. The reason given is Posada hits righties better yet Montero has a higher OPS then Posada. This reeks of a sentimental decsion

    Can you prove that somehow? Sounds like conjecture to me.

  97. vinslol September 29th, 2011 at 3:45 pm

    as bad a matchup as posada supposedly is he was hitting balls to the deepest part of CF in detroit when he faced verlander earlier in the year and had at least one homer robbed from what I remember

    the bat speed is there against him, for whatever reason. I don’t see the need to panic

  106. CountryClub September 29th, 2011 at 3:47 pm

    Forget the Posada vs Montero debate for a second.

    Where did this belief come from that Montero can’t hit hard throwing righties? His bat speed is one of his major pluses as a hitter. That doesnt mean he wont swing through heat, every hitter does. But he has no problem (and hasn’t at any level) hitting good fasballs.

  107. Triple Short of a Cycle September 29th, 2011 at 3:47 pm

    This is the same garbage we had to go through in 95 when Buck wouldn’t trust Rivera against Sea and we had to watch Cone blow the game on his 800th pitch

  108. Bronx Jeers September 29th, 2011 at 3:49 pm

    I thought CB brought up a valid point. Perhaps they felt Po’s experience trumped Montero’s bat speed. Maybe his hand is too sore.

    It’s kind of a damned if you do, damned if you don’t situation as well. Montero goes 0-4 tomorrow and you can say
    “why didn’t they use the veteran lefty bat?”

  109. Triple Short of a Cycle September 29th, 2011 at 3:49 pm

    Triple ? Montero?s sample size says the same thing.

    ————————————————–

    Then why is Girardi basing his decsion on it especially since Montero has shown he was able to hit righties throughout his minor league career

    PM ET

    By Bexy and Tamar Chalker
    1. Their offense is really good. In terms of wRC+, they’re second among playoff teams to only the Rangers, and they’re the best in baseball against lefties. That could prove to be a big in potential matchups with Texas and Philadelphia.

    MORE YANKEES COVERAGE

    Follow the Yankees all postseason at It’s About the Money, Stupid, including:

    –Brien Jackson’s playoff predictions.
    –A review of last night’s crazy game in Tampa.

    Plus much more before Friday’s first game against Justin Verlander and the Tigers, including a series analysis and preview of Game 1.
    2. CC Sabathia gives them a chance to win every game he pitches, and Joe Girardi will have no problem using the big horse on short rest whenever he feels the need to.

    3. The back end of the bullpen is very deep. Mariano Rivera and David Robertson were two of the best relievers in baseball, and Rafael Soriano has been pretty good since returning from the DL in July. If these three can dominate at the back end of the game, it could do a lot to bolster a shaky corps of starters.

    4. This is a group that’s been here before. Not to rely too much on cliché, but the Yankees’ roster is loaded with postseason experience, so there shouldn’t be any concern about stage fright, or any reason to worry about players being overwhelmed by the moment.

    5. You know what? Maybe it’s just their year. This was a team that was supposed to have critical starting pitching problems, that was supposed to have no chance of beating the Red Sox, and yet Bartolo Colon and Freddy Garcia held up all season, Ivan Nova surprised everyone and they finished with the best record in the American League. Why shouldn’t the magic continue into October?

    CountryClub – Verlander isn’t winning the Cy Young because he throws meatballs. He’s winning it because it’s hard to hit his easiest pitch to hit.

    A guy with a .300 OBP off righties shouldn’t play over anyone. OPS is a BS stat, especially with only 50 at-bats.

  113. Villa Nova-Ya September 29th, 2011 at 3:50 pm

    Didn’t notice you’d all moved forward.

    But on M Cabrera in 2003,

    The 2003 Marlins were a team in much flux. They could afford to run with a young rookie like Cabrera. By the time the playoffs rolled around, he had already played in 87 games.

    The Marlins had a need for Cabrera at the ML level that the Yankees really did not have for Montero this season.

    Plus, I’d say the pressure on a position player on the Florida Marlins in 2003 is a lot less than for a developing catcher/DH on the NY Yankees in 2011.

    That being said, if they need MOntero in this series, they will use him.

    You really can’t compare the situations of the two teams.

  114. Jerkface September 29th, 2011 at 3:51 pm

    I think it’s hilarious that after a few weeks, Montero is a HOFer who is guaranteed to come up huge in the playoffs.

    Who is saying this?

  115. 108 stitches September 29th, 2011 at 3:51 pm

    Jorge clearly doesn’t have the bat speed to catch up to Verlander’s velocity. I respect all he’s done over the years for the team but seeing as it’s his last year and it’s felt he should be on the postseason rosters, use him for pinch hitting purposes only but not a defined role as a DH.
    Chavez can catch up to heat from the left side and Montero from the right side.

  116. Irreverent Discourse September 29th, 2011 at 3:52 pm

    Jorge clearly doesn’t have the bat speed to catch up to Verlander’s velocity.

    You guys can repeat this until you are blue in the face. Doesn’t make it true.

  119. m September 29th, 2011 at 3:54 pm

    I’m all for giving Jorge a chance. Feels like something special might come out of it.

  120. Jerkface September 29th, 2011 at 3:54 pm

    Posada has an .866 OPS or higher against all the Tigers starters (all but Verlander over 1) this year, in very small samples. Thats why Girardi is doing this.

    Though I do think they should rely more on Montero’s natural ability.

  121. Joe from Long Island September 29th, 2011 at 3:55 pm

    bruised, but better.

  122. mick September 29th, 2011 at 3:55 pm

    maybe he needs a day off right Doc?

  123. CountryClub September 29th, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    Jorge is a pure guess hitter now (it’s why he strikes out looking so much). I wouldnt be shocked to see him get around on a Verlander heater for that reason.

  124. Irreverent Discourse September 29th, 2011 at 3:57 pm

    Posada does hit .300/.391/.450 in his career against Verlander as well. Maybe he just see’s the pitch well… who knows. No sense in forcing Montero into the lineup when they’ve been avoiding him facing right-handers on a regular basis anyway.

  127. G. Love September 29th, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    If we’re being all sensitive and honest Betsy, I do think you’re a bit of a plague upon this forum and you’ve had as much to do with some of the very good posters bailing on it as the awful trolls. Your incessant Hughes nonsense was unbearable to read. Remember when Nova wasn’t “anything special” as you said incessantly to defend Hughes when you weren’t bashing him? Incredible he’s our game 2 starter since he’s nothing special.

    I give everyone credit for sticking with this place when you have to dodge cowpies in here all day from the trolls and the likes of Betsy.

    I came in here to post today after reading some of the threads and felt like contributing since I do enjoy this place and miss some of the people. I didn’t mention you at all & you felt compelled to insult me. You’re right, I should have ignored you like I have when I had enough of you and that West Coast guy in here and it made it not fun to post or read here anymore. I shouldn’t have slipped up and returned.

    As for you not approving of my humor, wow that hurt. I need to re-evaluate some things in my life. What’s comedy to you? A good gritty episode of Cagney & Lacey when they wear silly hats? Kate & Ali your favie sitcom? You get all excited when Ralph Mouth tells a joke?

    Those are rhetorical questions by the way. I don’t need a response. I don’t care what makes you laugh.

    Oh and by the way, go Yankees!

  128. Irreverent Discourse September 29th, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    2 of Montero’s HR’s against righties came off of the awesome Orioles closer, Jim Johnson. This doesn’t indicate large success against righties to me…

  129. vinslol September 29th, 2011 at 4:00 pm

    Does Jorge bat 7th in front of Martin and Gardner?

    Probably, gardner has no bat speed for 96+ so I can’t see him batting leadoff and there’s no sense moving everyone down for that

    So he’s at least not batting 9th

  130. G. Love September 29th, 2011 at 4:00 pm

    Nick – The Dudley shout out was definitely for you! Be honored my friend.

  131. Joe from Long Island September 29th, 2011 at 4:01 pm

    I don’t know how applicable Jorge’s numbers against Verlander are. To me, they’re kind of like ancient history. Verlander’s having a great season throwing the ball, and Jorge’s bat speed ain’t what it used to be.

    I think “saving” Jorge as a bat off the bench/ph is better plan. Something that Montero hasn’t really had experience with. Just my thoughts.

  132. Yank1 September 29th, 2011 at 4:03 pm

    Posada is just not a good matchup against a team like the Tigers with the power arms they have and the velocity they generate. His vulnerability to the change-ups will be accentuated against pitchers like this.

    He can hit against Porcello, let Jesus hit against the 3 power arms.

  133. blake September 29th, 2011 at 4:03 pm

  143. Wave Your Hat September 29th, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    I think Verlander would give Montero fits at this stage of Montero’s career.

    It was early in the year but Posada hit the Tiger starters well. He hit Verlander well.

    All this is way overblown IMO. Posada will be fine.

  144. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 29th, 2011 at 4:06 pm

  146. Chambliss September 29th, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    If the Yankees lose the first two games against Detroit and Posada goes 0-8 in the process, I bet that Montero is the DH in game 3.

  147. Villa Nova-Ya September 29th, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    Cabrera was also hitting extremely well in the minors before being called up. Montero was doing well, but not M. Cabrera 2003 well. And Cabrera was not a catcher.

    I agree that Montero looks to be a great hitter going forward. And he will have his day soon enough.

    Who knows what’s going to happen?

    I don’t think it’s a lock to say Montero would hit Verlander any more than any other person in the league hit Verlander this season.

    I won’t talk about this being MOntero’s first major league playoff, because from what I can see MOntero looks like he belongs.

    But I don’t think there is a need to rush this and I don’t think that playing Posada is going to cost them. If I’m wrong, I’m wrong.

    Sux starting rotation was in the bottom three of the MAJORS, and that was for the season!

    Where in the name of God did people who still believed in the Sux in the postseason, where did you think this Sux team was going with a starting rotation with an ERA over 7 and their top two starters losing most of their games in September and falling apart in the last weeks?! You know that pitching wins championships.

  178. LGY September 29th, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    Nick

    Good point.

  179. mick September 29th, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    This will be the worst collapse of all time beside what Oshaugnessy says bc the team will be dismantled and the RS as you know them will be no more.

  180. G. Love September 29th, 2011 at 4:24 pm

    trisha ,

    When I watched that collapse last night I immediately thought how much joy it must have brought you and smiled. If I wasn’t up against a work deadline I would’ve come in to celebrate with you guys last night. Speaking of that work deadline…gotta get back to it.

    Good to touch base with a lot of you again. I’ll pop in for some playoff fun.

    If this is what’s being discussed, then I think Tito’s a goner. Him a bunch of players. Ownership didn’t fork over that many dollars for a soap opera. A losing soap opera, at that.

    They seem to be hinting at internal problems. Theo also discussed how it’s his problem if the team is not in as good a shape as other teams. Says he’s not signally any particular players physical condition, but he’s talking general.

  184. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 29th, 2011 at 4:26 pm

    They were HIDEOUS in their treatment of Ellsbury and again, ugly bit mouth Youklis led the charge. Because of their trashing him to the press, he ended up coming back early and if you remember reinjured himself in one of the first games he was back.

    I was never crazy about Manny but one of my favorite moments was when he biotch slapped Youklis in the mouth when Youklis accused him of not hustling.

    Jim Johnson was magnificent! Come on, the guy saved the O’s bacon just about every time he came in.

    It would never happen but I’d like to see Buck be named Manager of the Year just for collapsing the Sux!!!

    Theo – will discuss coaches and managers in terms of who they would want to bring back.

    (Did Tito think the press wasn’t going to pick up on the “closeness of the team” issue and not bring it up again????)

    Definite problems in the clubhouse. No reading between the lines necessary.

    I wonder what/who it is.

    “The O’s celebrated like they won the World Series.

    Amazing wasn’t it? I loved watching it. They apparently followed the lead of Papa Buck. Here’s another thing I loved. O’s in last place but their crowd was there screaming their brains out for their O’s, last games of the seasons. Boy were they loud when the O’s tied the game in the 9th. And then when President Andino got the winning hit, they went nuts!!!

  203. Bronx Jeers September 29th, 2011 at 4:35 pm

    I’m rooting hard for the Os next year – Buck and all those guys who played their hearts out deserve to have a winning season.

    Buck should get some MOY votes. He won’t win obviously, but his team decided the playoff picture in the final month. They played the Tigers, Yankees, Angels, Rays, Sox, etc. and they impacted every race.

  209. mick September 29th, 2011 at 4:37 pm

    He said he didn’t like something he saw after the toronto series & had a private meeting with his team to sort things out. (not sure which toronto series, not the last one, something earlier when they were wining)

  216. mick September 29th, 2011 at 4:40 pm

  217. yanks 27 September 29th, 2011 at 4:40 pm

    Sox would be wise to go after Garcia next year.

    They need a few guys like him. They have their top 3 set up with Beckett-Lester-Buchholz. They need to add some reliable innings eaters behind them. They also need to bring back Papelbon. Their lineup, when healthy, is fine. They could use a Prince Fielder or Pujols at DH but it is not necessary. Beltran or Cuddayer to replace Drew would be good as well.

  218. Erin September 29th, 2011 at 4:41 pm

  223. Irreverent Discourse September 29th, 2011 at 4:43 pm

    BJ – Not sure I would be comfortable with Maddon “thanking the yankees for taking a knee”. Makes the Yankee’s look really bad if he says something like that. You appreciate the positives, Baltimore not giving up on their season and playing it out to the end made all the difference.

  224. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 29th, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    Jeers – Yanks may be their opposition. Maddon can’t say anything about the Yankees right now. And truly, Buck’s team played their hearts out right down to the last out. I have to answers to the question – what about the rest of the season? That’s not my problem. But am I impressed as hell at what they did to the league in September? You bet I am.

  225. Irreverent Discourse September 29th, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    Cano Tex A-Rod could work, have to pitch to Cano so he can be on base. Can’t fully shift on Teixeira when guys are on base… it works…

  226. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 29th, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    And ID, Maddon might have thought that the Yankees too a knee for the Sux in the 14-inning game, so it’s a wash!

    Francona is probably talking about Mr Glass JD Drew……or Lackey…….my guess is that they are sick of both of their acts.

  230. yanks 27 September 29th, 2011 at 4:46 pm

    “Ungrateful turd.”

  231. Red Robin September 29th, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    I am still deliriously joyful because of what happened last night.

  232. LockDown September 29th, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    I think Maddon is coming from the perspective of understanding the need for the yankees to “tune up” and then rest their players. He’s not going to gloat about beating the yankees when he knew the AAA lineup was in & Proctor was pitching while RO-MO looked on.

    He saw this happen against the sox on sunday & now the yanks did the same with them. He gets it.

  233. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 29th, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    mick, I could talk about this one forever just because I am so in awe of the way the whole thing played out. I’m still trying to wrap my mind around the way those games played out in tandem.

    A festivus indeed. Such a festivus as hadn’t been seen in the history of baseball. A Titanic-proportion collapse.

    That’s our Suxers!!!

  234. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 29th, 2011 at 4:49 pm

  235. 4time September 29th, 2011 at 4:49 pm

    If the Sox can find a way to get rid of Lackey, there is 0 reason for us not to be able to get rid of AJ.

    Not that I mind AJ, but if a younger option is ready, AJ should not block him.

  236. Red Robin September 29th, 2011 at 4:49 pm

    I had predicted either the Sucks or the Tigers will face the Phillies.

  237. blake September 29th, 2011 at 4:50 pm

    Again…..the Yanks would have won 7-0 last night if the game mattered to them. I hope we face the Rays in the ALCS because that means we got there…..and because Texas is a lot better than them overall

  238. mick September 29th, 2011 at 4:50 pm

    You can walk tall in Beanotown Trish…the underclass will pay you no mind .
    And if they revert back to their evil ways just walk away and smile…

  239. pat September 29th, 2011 at 4:51 pm

    “Did Joe just say Cano-Tex-Arod?”

    No. Robbie/Alex/Tex since Tigs have righty starters.

  240. mick September 29th, 2011 at 4:51 pm

    …and say the Proctor made me do it.

  241. blake September 29th, 2011 at 4:52 pm

    Lackey would be harder to move than AJ……his contract is a year longer…..he’s whiffer injury risk …..he’s pitching worse…..and he’s a bad teammate.

  242. mick September 29th, 2011 at 4:52 pm

    I would like to see an Arod eruption this series…it would make things a lot easier.

  243. Red Robin September 29th, 2011 at 4:53 pm

    Do you remember 2006 ?

  244. mick September 29th, 2011 at 4:53 pm

    Blake…Aceves is warming up.

  245. blake September 29th, 2011 at 4:54 pm

    I predict a big AB for Montero vs Coke……and a Valverde blown save.

  246. Red Robin September 29th, 2011 at 4:54 pm

    I think the Tigers will easily (!) win this series, like 2006.

    —-

    Jose Valverde was 49 for 49 in save opportunities

    Joaquin Benoit, has a 1.36 earned run average in his last 50 games

    Fister is 8-1 with a 1.79 earned run average

    Max Scherzer shut out the Yankees for eight innings in May

    etc.

  247. Irreverent Discourse September 29th, 2011 at 4:54 pm

    Red Robin – Do you remember yesterday when your team was eliminated from the playoffs? That was funny.

  248. BJK September 29th, 2011 at 4:55 pm

    Hey Nick-

    If you’re still around, what’s Vegas saying about Yanks/Detroit?

  249. AldotheApache September 29th, 2011 at 4:55 pm

    Trish, I would think that in the offseason, Theo the boy genius will address the team’s age and, most of all, their pitching.

    I believe the latter was vastly overrated this season. Dice came through as expected, Lackey continued his horrible pitching record at Fenway, Beckett was there at times but …

    I expected Lester to have a better year, not that it was all that bad. Papelbonehead was another who came through as expected.

    Bold BloSox predictions for 2012 … Big Sloppy – gone. Varitek – gone. J.DL. Drew – gone (no surprise there). One of their big hitters (Ellsbury, Youkilis?) will be moved to acquire pitching.

  250. Red Robin September 29th, 2011 at 4:55 pm

    I hope I am wrong .

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  282. good content August 11th, 2014 at 12:13 pm

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  287. browse around this web-site August 11th, 2014 at 11:30 pm

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    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.)

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
