Pregame notes: “You worry about today’s game today”

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Notes, Podcast on Oct 01, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Freddy Garcia will start tomorrow’s rescheduled Game 2, and it sounds like there was never much chance of CC Sabathia getting the ball. In fact, Joe Girardi hasn’t committed to Sabathia pitching on Monday. It’s still possible, he said, the he’ll wait until Tuesday to pitch his ace again.

“You’re asking a guy to pitch on Sunday and Thursday, and he threw on Friday,” Girardi said. “To me, it’s too much… You don’t want to send a guy out there if he’s not physically as good as he can be. I’m not saying that any starting pitcher is going to be 100 percent, but if you have a couple games that you can choose from and he can be 95 percent one day and 80 percent the other day, I’m going to take him at the 95 percent.”

Right now, Girardi expects Sabathia to be his Monday starter, but he won’t set that in stone until Sabathia checks in Sunday and confirms that he feels strong enough to pitch the next day.

As for Tuesday’s Game 4, it’s obvious that A.J. Burnett is the leading candidate to start for the Yankees, but Girardi said he hasn’t discussed it with Burnett. For now, Burnett is available as a long man, and if the Yankees get into a crazy situation tonight, Burnett will be available to pitch multiple innings.

“I think you worry about today’s game today,” Girardi said. “You worry about tomorrow’s game tomorrow. That’s what you do.”

How much has this series changed now that Sabathia and Justin Verlander are, essentially, pitching only once.

“It can potentially change a lot, but I don’t think we’re ever going to know,” Girardi said. “That’s for people to sit around and talk about. You’ve got two aces going, a 1-1 game, and now they’re conceivably only going to pitch once each. It changes the complexion of it, but none of us really know if it would have changed the outcome.”

Here’s Girardi’s press conference.

• Girardi quickly dismissed any notion that Alex Rodriguez might be bothered by playing four games in a row. He said the fact Rodriguez sat out the regular-season finale is a non-issue. “If it wasn’t New York and it wasn’t Alex this wouldn’t have been such a big deal that a guy was a little cranky,” Girardi said. “He played on turf a couple of days. I think you probably could have askd about 10 of our players in Tampa on Wednesday if any of their knees were a little cranky from playing on the turf and you probably would have gotten about seven yeses. Because it’s Alex, it’s a big deal.”

• Rodriguez actually did early work in the field yesterday and today. When I got to the park this afternoon he was taking grounders at third.

• Same thing for Russell Martin. Even with four days in a row and a day game after a night game, Martin is still expected to start every game behind the plate. “He’s ready to go,” Girardi said.

• The closest Girardi would come to confirming Burnett as his fourth starter was to say he’s a “great candidate” to start that game. “He’s pitched well against this team this year,” Girardi said.

• If not Burnett, Phil Hughes is the obvious alternative. “He’s an option,” Girardi said. “He’s not really stretched out over the last two weeks, but I can’t tell you exactly what’s going to happen in the next couple games with the rain in the forecast. ”

• Girardi said he never put a real plan together because he was quickly convinced last night’s game was not going to continue, but he probably would have used Burnett had the game resumed after the rain delay. “That’s probably what I would have done,” Girardi said. “I didn’t even think about that, because when I came in, I looked at the radar and it didn’t look too good. I heard TBS say there was a window and I was wondering where that window was.”

• Girardi said it’s not up to him, but his hope is that MLB will postpone the start of tonight’s game if there’s rain in the forecast for the first few innings. He’d rather not burn out a starting pitcher in another delay.

• The Tigers have not changed anything about their lineup. They’d have to lose a player to do so, so they’re going with their vLHP lineup against the right-handed Ivan Nova.

• Andy Pettitte is here, but there’s no ceremonial first pitch tonight, so the thinking seems to be that he could be throwing out the first pitch tomorrow. Could the Yankees have Mariano Rivera throw to Jorge Posada before Game 1, then have Pettitte throw to Derek Jeter before Game 2?

    “I think you worry about today’s game today,” Girardi said. “You worry about tomorrow’s game tomorrow. That’s what you do.”

    Sage advice. Girardi is using the word “worry” interchangeably with “take care of”, of course!

  3. Red Robin October 1st, 2011 at 5:51 pm

    So envious of the weather at the other games .

  4. GreenBeret7 October 1st, 2011 at 5:53 pm

    I think the ideal “first pitch” tomorrow is to have Pettitte make his pick-off move to first base.

  5. GreenBeret7 October 1st, 2011 at 5:55 pm

    At least, something’s finally going right for the Red Sox. They have been guaranteed to have no more rainouts this year.

    They could be brought up in 13. A lot of that depends on what they do this off season.

    ==========

    That’s true as well, but i don’t think the yanks are going to be very active this offseason, there isn’t anything reaaly interesting out there in this free agent class aside from CJ Wilson, and i think the years and dollars he is going to command are not worth it….The FO probably will try the same strategy as last off season IMO.

    Is Utley still sporting the Gordon Gekko look?

  9. luis October 1st, 2011 at 5:59 pm

    Trisha,

    To be clear, i never liked the potential signing of Lee, because i thought that it was for to many years, and that meant that it would block the youth movement ( i am a prospect hugger after all ) and hurt the financial flexibility of the team going forward.

    But a snub is a snub, so i hate him even more for that, so i want him to see the WS on the TV :)

  10. Bronx Jeers October 1st, 2011 at 6:02 pm

    Pete’ s funny.

    ” The first rule the new manager of the Red Sox should have is run to first base no matter what. Don’t sort of move forward glacially like David Ortiz. Don’t half jog like Adrian Gonzalez. Don’t go half speed because you know you’re out anyway like Carl Crawford. Run. If Dustin Pedroia can run to first like what’s left of his hair is on fire, so can everybody else. ”

  11. Joe from Long Island October 1st, 2011 at 6:04 pm

    GB – Hi. Just got back in.

    Pete certainly had his thing about Alex, and the opposite for Giambi. It wouldn’t be the first time a writer had his/her favorites. But, you have to admit, he comes up with some interesting items, and gets discussion going.

    If MLB set them up for another rain delay, that would really mess with both Girardi and Leyland. These guys have only so many starters. I’d much prefer a DH tomorrow to a messed up game tonight.

  12. Betsy October 1st, 2011 at 6:08 pm

    Uck, is everyone else’s font in italics?

    Against all odds,

    I read your post from the previous post, good point…

  15. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 1st, 2011 at 6:10 pm

    Luis, I wouldn’t mind spanking the Phils!

    :)

  16. GreenBeret7 October 1st, 2011 at 6:11 pm

    Joe In LI, if there is another all night game stoppage tonight, baseball will almost have to allow these two teams a one time option to rework there rosters to add a pitcher if the want. anything less would compromise the “integrity” of the games to be played.

  17. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 1st, 2011 at 6:11 pm

    And because I wanted to emphasize the point, I put it in italics!

  18. luis October 1st, 2011 at 6:12 pm

    Me neither! ;)

  19. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 1st, 2011 at 6:12 pm

    Well St. Joe isn’t in town tonight so we’ll have to rely on a “lesser” being if decisions have to be made. Selig’s definitely a lesser being!

    Light drizzle by me right now. Not ideal baseball weather but definitely playable if it’s the same in the Bronx.

  22. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 1st, 2011 at 6:14 pm

    Didn’t work. I thought if I put “” it might stop the italics.

  23. rb from LI October 1st, 2011 at 6:14 pm

    GB, roster change was mentioned last night

    CB September 30th, 2011 at 11:15 pm

    Also – via RAB – Davidoff is saying that due to the cancellation the teams can change their rosters for the ALDS in response.

    So if they want the yanks can add Noesi or Colon for Ayala, etc.

  24. GreenBeret7 October 1st, 2011 at 6:14 pm

    rework ***their*** rosters

  25. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 1st, 2011 at 6:14 pm

    Anybody else find it a coincidence that Arod and Jeter both broke up with their celeb girlfriends at the same time, just before the post season ?

    I also heard Arod and Jeter are good friends again.

    **********

    :lol:

  28. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 1st, 2011 at 6:15 pm

    It was reported today that the information is bad information and rosters cannot be changed.

  29. LGY October 1st, 2011 at 6:15 pm

    trisha,

    Yes.

  30. GreenBeret7 October 1st, 2011 at 6:15 pm

    The problem is that the game has already started and was not a cancellation, but, a suspension of play.

  31. luis October 1st, 2011 at 6:16 pm

    Trisha,

    I think is the thread that is on italics

    Will it impact the “integrity” of Bud Selig?

    Don’t throw eggs at me, please.

  34. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 1st, 2011 at 6:19 pm

    Nothing changes with the roster. The Yankees and Rays set their division series roster yesterday, and they can’t change it just because the schedule has changed. This is at least part of the reason for carrying someone like A.J. Burnett ahead of someone like Hector Noesi. The Yankees can’t change the roster just because they suddenly have to play four games in a row and need a fourth starter.

    From Chad’s thread lead-in last night

  35. Joe from Long Island October 1st, 2011 at 6:20 pm

    There have been rain delays in playoff and WS games before. As I remember, in the ’75 Series, there were about 2 or 3 rain days before they could play Game 6 (the Carlton Fisk HR game) at Fenway. I’m guessing they don’t let them remake the rosters.

    Think I’ll root for the Rays again tonight.

    I know some posters want the chance to stick it to the Rangers but what better way than for them to be dropped on their antlers?

  38. rb from LI October 1st, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    Davidoff’s tweet:
    “If this game gets banged, teams can retool rosters for the new Game 1. Rule passed after 2006 NLCS Game 1 was rained out. #Tigers-#Yankees”

    So, since the game was suspended and not rained out this rule is not in effect?

  39. pat October 1st, 2011 at 6:23 pm

    Integrity and Bud Selig in the same sentence?

    As long as a cash register is ringing and Congress isn’t complaining, Bud’s good with anything.

    Ramiro Pena is still crying..

    Terry Francona is throwing darts drunk

    Andy Pet is wishing he had the ball tonight

    Miguel Cairo wonders if somebody will want him on their team next year

    Jose Reyes is doing scratch off lottery tickets

    Roger Clemens is studying law

    Barry Bonds is flying a kite

    Barack Obama is listening to hip hop smoking a Marlboro Light

    AJ Burnett is looking in a mirror repeating, “I’m Batman!”

    Joe Girardi weather proofing and polishing his binder

    .. and tonight’s NYY starting lineup is preparing to knock the crap out of the Detroit Tigers !

  42. JobaTipsHisCap October 1st, 2011 at 6:24 pm

    what’s up with the font?

  43. GreenBeret7 October 1st, 2011 at 6:27 pm

    Correct. It was an official start and Sabathia has an ERA of 4.50 and Verlander’s is 9.00. The issue will be if the restart gets shut down for the night after a few innings, both teams have burned their two top starters. at that point, they’ll have to allow a roster change, I’d think, involving players that have not appeared in the game at that point.

  44. luis October 1st, 2011 at 6:27 pm

    Don’t know how this can be addressed, but Fenway Park has to change. It’s obscene that people were dancing and singing to “Sweet Caroline” when the season was going down the toilet. Fenway Park used to be a place where fans applauded when a batter hit a ground ball to the right side to move a runner to third. Now 75 percent of the people in the joint on a given night have no idea why that’s important.

  84. BX33 October 1st, 2011 at 6:46 pm

    That is why the Phillies are going to be hell to beat.

    And we have no lefty to counter them except CC. In 09 we had CC, Andy, Cokey, and Marte.

  85. Captain Clutch October 1st, 2011 at 6:46 pm

    La Russa pulled a Girardi here. Someone should have been warming up after the 2nd guy got on base and you have to pull him after the Howard homerun. That was like watching AJ on the mound every 5th day.

  86. CB October 1st, 2011 at 6:47 pm

    The cards had their chance. Probably gone now with doc on the mound.

    You knew it was going to be ugly up in boston – but the long knives have come out very quickly.

    Tito’s gone. Theo could be on his way out.

    The immediate problem with the club is the composition of their roster and their evaluation of talent. So this season was much more on Theo than Tito.

    That said – what’s really unclear in all of this is whether or not the rot stops with Theo. The GM you can change. You can get rid of.

    But the real question over there is what the role of ownership has been in all of this. You look at that roster and the decisions that have been made – it’s not unreasonable to think that Larry Lucchino’s fingerprints are all over that situation. Even Tito’s press conference – the way he focused on ownership and their lack of support was interesting.

    The manager and GM you can get rid of. Owners – can’t do anything about that.

  87. P October 1st, 2011 at 6:47 pm

  103. RS October 1st, 2011 at 6:51 pm

    Take Holliday out of the equation and the Cardinals are a mediocre team, probably not even on the level of the Angels or Blue Jays. The Phillies should win this series but it’s nice knowing that even if the Yankees get knocked out the AL will be represented by a worthy team capable of knocking them out in the WS should they get there.

  107. CB October 1st, 2011 at 6:52 pm

    I said this last night – but the Yanks need to seriously consider starting the game tonight with a reliever and seeing if they can get 3-4 innings out of him.

    If it’s going to be raining on and off throughout they could easily lose Nova as well.

    If there’s no legitimate rain free window and it’s going to rain heavier than what some have hoped for – they should save Nova’s bullets.

    Start the game with Hughes or even Robertson if need be and see how it looks in terms of rain.

    Yeah, game over for the Cardinals.

    It’s also outrageous that they’re letting the Yankees get rained on two nights in a row. MLB cannot let these teams play a double header because these delays are on their heads. However, if our games do get pushed back, it could be an advantage against other teams that have to sit and wait for us..

  111. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 1st, 2011 at 6:52 pm

  117. Joe from Long Island October 1st, 2011 at 6:54 pm

    but the long knives have come out very quickly.

    CB – now, how many people here do you think what that refers to? ;)

    Personally, I don’t think John Henry knows or cares a fig about baseball. All he knows/cares about is $$$, IMO. And, he knows his revenues from the Red Sox have nosedived the past two years, from what I’ve read.

    Lucchino signed off on the signings, and the allocation of dollars, or not, to their organization. He’s enough of a baseball man (in contrast to Randy Levine) to know better. He may also be better than Theo in office politics, so, especially given how much money he’s made for Henry and Werner, he will be safe.

    Theo, on the other hand? I wouldn’t be at all surprised if his next business address is in Chicago. Addison Street, I think it is.

    GB – tarp back on the field, huh? Sounds wonderful. Just wonderful.

    CB, you just know that would never happen. Love it or hate it, Girardi is a pretty traditional baseball man. He will stay the course and start Nova, although your hypothetical is perfectly reasonable.

    I live north of the Stadium and if they had started this game at 5pm they would have gotten it in. The sun actually came out and you could see some blue sky.
    Game starting at 8:30 and it will probably piss rain.

  123. GreenBeret7 October 1st, 2011 at 6:55 pm

    CB, my money is on LaRussa sneaking out of town on a Greyhound bus and heading up I55 to Chicago’s Southside. Epstein heads to the Chicago Northside and Francona heading for St. Louis. That would be a team that fits Francona’s style well.

    RadioKev, Girardi did that once (2008 I think). It was in KC. It backfired – I don’t think he’ll try that again.

  127. CB October 1st, 2011 at 6:56 pm

    Blake,

    The problem for the Sox is that ownership and Lackey may be correlated.

    Ownership and Crawford certainly are. Because it was ownership – and their anger at Boras which probably precluded them from making a legitimate run at Matt Holliday.

    Remember that winter. The Sox were lauded to their rational market approach and understanding of opportunity when it presented itself.

    They offerred Holliday 82M and when he rejected it – they didn’t bother to negotiate at all. The took their “take it or leave it” offer and directed it to their other top free agent target.

    John Lackeye.

    I really don’t think that whole strategy was Theo’s doing alone.

    Hughes to start the game? I had the same thought last night. Save Nova for another day.

  130. Yanks78 October 1st, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    Poor poor managing by Tony there

    It is the playoffs. You have to identify key moments that could decide the game and manage to win. Pitching to Ryan Howard with 2 on, 1 out with Kyle Loshe is AWFUL managing. You got through 5 innings 1 run with Loshe. Take it and go to your pen, as mediocre as it is.

    TLR is the king of mix and match. He should have been able to do that the rest of this game.

    You hope Girardi doesn’t make the same mistake. You MUST manage batter to batter and not let key moments in the game be decided by subpar players.

  131. Betsy October 1st, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    I can’t believe what I read about the SP not talking to the position players ……..that still goes on? Beckett and co. drinking in the clubhouse? Tito took the blame and as all the Boston papers have said – let’s face it, he was fired. It’s mindboggling that Henry and co. wouldn’t support Tito after what he did there, but they can quit with their Evil Empire crap now because they look like the Emperor now.

  132. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 1st, 2011 at 6:58 pm

    Everyone must remember that John Henry and Selig are bed partners and have had an evil alliance along with Jeffrey Loria.

    Just thought I’d remind you.

  133. Betsy October 1st, 2011 at 6:58 pm

    You can not start Hughes………he isn’t stretched out, even Joe admitted that.

  135. CB October 1st, 2011 at 6:59 pm

    “Start AJ…..then you don’t have to in game 4.”

    I dont’ think it’ll happen. But this would be the real upside gamble.

    Just ask AJ to give them 4 innings tonight. That would minimize his presence in the series.

    Though AJ is such a random disaster I think he’s sort of better early on before he loses some of his stuff.

  136. Yogi Mantle October 1st, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    CB, Theo isn’t a bad GM, but he hasn’t been all that either. He made the same type of mistakes that the Yankees did when they had a farm system and traded too much of it away for players that just weren’t worth it.

    Not so sure that it’s all on the owner, either, as Henry has been so involved with his soccer team.

  137. CountryClub October 1st, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    It’s stopped raining in the Bronx an according to weather.com it shouldn’t return until after midnight

  138. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 1st, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    Betsy, John Henry is an underhanded dirtbag. If you’re counting on him to ever be ethical or moral, you’ll be waiting a long time…like forever.

  139. jacksquat October 1st, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    At weather.com it looks like it will clear up before game time.

  140. Betsy October 1st, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    RadioKev, you don’t remember Girardi starting a game in KC with the relievers and bringing in IPK later?

    It’s an intriguing idea, but you can’t pitch Hughes and I wouldn’t use Robertson. Was Noesi added? You could start him…..but he’s a very iffy proposition. It really wouldn’t be fair to him.

  141. P October 1st, 2011 at 7:00 pm

  143. Joe from Long Island October 1st, 2011 at 7:01 pm

    I don’t think LaRussa leaves St. Louis. The press’ reputation of being a soft touch, at least as far as their Cards, is not matched anywhere else. Certainly not in Chicago (I lived there for 9 years, so I know what of I speak.)

    I think Tito will be a nice contrast to the bizarro world of Ozzie.

  144. RadioKev October 1st, 2011 at 7:01 pm

    Red Sox ownership involved in the Lackey signing? Maybe – maybe that explains why Francona was frustrated, but at the same time, that’s such a ridiculous suggestion. What ownership in MLB would force their GM to acquire a starter on Lackey’s level?

    Lackey was never good enough, even at his best, to command that type of interest. He’s never been the best pitcher in baseball, and his years leading up to free agency he was moving closer and closer to the middle of the pack. I’ll give Henry a (italics?)little (close hypothetical italics) more credit than that.

  145. Triple Short of a Cycle October 1st, 2011 at 7:01 pm

    Beckett and Lester have been there for years and all of a sudden they stopped talking to position players most of which have been there for a while? Something doesn’t add up. I wonder if Tito pulls a Torre and writes a tell all book

    Now that a few of you have mentioned it, that does ring a bell. However, I don’t think Girardi would do that now. Hasn’t he changed his style a bit since 2008? This year he’s been very orthodox in his managing style.

    Also it being a playoff game, I don’t think he’d take that type of gamble. Not with the NY media and ownership to contend with.

    That’s something the Rays would try and pull.

    RB, I doubt they will start if they know they are only going two innings. They can’t take a week to play one game.

    One positive is that MLB will have to look at such a situation coming up again, and come up with some manner of how to handle it rather than go through this again.

    YM,

    Not saying its ownership as the primary driver. Just saying that I can see their role being an active one in decision making either directly or by setting agenda and context. If they are part of the problem then it’s a much deeper rooted one.

    Joe,

    Henry ran funds. He’s one of the people that made money using – statistical arbitrage I believe. Definitely some type of quantitative market strategy along those lines.

    Which is the context for how he’s tried to set up the Sox and their use of numbers.

  167. P October 1st, 2011 at 7:08 pm

    wow, they are batting Damon 5th. I don’t think I have ever seen him bat anywhere but 1 or 2 with both the Redsox and Yanks.

    say what you want about him, but I liked having him on our team.. he and Melky both had good energy for the team.

  168. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 1st, 2011 at 7:08 pm

    I’m one of the few, I think, but I have AJ’s back. I think he’s going to give the Yanks a great performance.

  169. rb from LI October 1st, 2011 at 7:09 pm

    Yogi, I was just responding to somebody’s comment about starting Phil. By no means do i expect that to happen! I was only thinking that if it was a game that was going to be a start/stop/start situation, you don’t lose your “starter.” But I was being intentionally outlandish – it just didn’t come across.

    Triple,

    And they only started drinking beer in the clubhouse on September 8th or whatever date it was that they started this collapse?

    It is never as one-sided as things appear. And Tito isn’t absolved of blame if he allowed those things to go on under his watch. What kind of leader is that?

  172. Red Robin October 1st, 2011 at 7:09 pm

  173. Yogi Mantle October 1st, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    CB, I could see that. Henry seems the type to stick his nose in, make some orders, then disappear for a while. I think he could have ordered Theo to make some big splashes after that “bridge year” stuff.

  174. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 1st, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    Joe from LI, guarantee you pasty Henry was an inside trader. Only in those days they didn’t get caught. He conspired with Loria and Selig and disemboweled the Expos. Loria rewarded Henry with players.

    It is never as one-sided as things appear. And Tito isn’t absolved of blame if he allowed those things to go on under his watch. What kind of leader is that?

    Epstein is no better a GM than Cashman is. Epstein still uses a checkbook. The difference is that Cashman has overdraft protection and Epstein has to beg for a bigger allowance after blowing his on monkey suits and guitar picks for him and Gammons.

    I was saying this morning that if you are going to have to throw AJ anyway in the series…..then why not do it at home…..when rain is in the forecast….when you have 8 ABs and your opponent only has 7….and when their lineup is designed for a LHP. Seems to me better than starting him in a 9 inning game…..

  191. Joe from Long Island October 1st, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    CB – I remember that Henry was into quantitative analysis. However, it doesn’t look like it’s translating well. Certainly not with Lackey and Crawford. But, there’s more to running a baseball organization than signing FAs. The minor leagues and scouting and such.

  192. luis October 1st, 2011 at 7:18 pm

  200. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 1st, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    I don’t know if we realize the enormity of the problems in beantown. What appeared to be a major league swoon by a team that was highly overrated turned into so much more than that.

    Gammons said the other day that collapses like that have been known to change teams forever. Now we find that there are uglier problems behind it and the unholy trio decided to scapegoat Tito. While Tito deserved some accountability, a hard slap on the wrist with a promise to fix things might have been more appropriate.

  201. GreenBeret7 October 1st, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    The difference is that Cashman buys players that fit a team need. Epstein is following the GMSIII trail of shiny new toys. He had no real need for both gonzales and Crawford. He needed starting rotation depth. There is none in that system within 4 years. Cashman needed help there, too. He got lucky with both Colon and Garcia, but, he also knew he had Nova and Noesi waiting….and more emergency starters a bit further back.

    Trisha,

    Don’t worry about Francona. First, the guy should have made things work – but he didn’t. He did let the team crumble, and that’s the simple truth. Second, the guy will be fine without the Red Sox. He’ll get a good deal elsewhere and carry on – I think the Red Sox will be the much bigger losers on that decision.

  204. Shame Spencer October 1st, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    Didn’t the ’04 Sox do shots of Jack before those games they took from us? I guess Tito just trusted them to be more responsible without looking over their shoulders too much and things got out of hand..

    ——————————–

    sums it up perfectly. Cashman definitely had some luck this offseason but he is spending his money much smarter than Epstein. CC is a legitimate ace. It’s alright to throw him a huge contract. Throwing a huge contract to Carl Crawford who is by no means a star player and will not age well is not smart.

  206. Triple Short of a Cycle October 1st, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    He didn’t need Crawford I agree but Gonzalez they def needed.

  207. BTX October 1st, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    Yanks – I agree.

    What does it say about Tito that he let the prisoners run the asylum like that?
    While he may be “classy”, that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t administer his authority and allow guys to do what they want.

    He had a reputation of being lax and too much of a player’s manager… and it looks like it came back to bite him.

    The pitchers in the clique thing… ehh… seems more like an excuse than anything else. Just like people killed Willie Randolph because the Latin players always hung out together. Managers are not social workers – it is not their job to make sure all the players interact or like eachother.

    Some things might be more on Theo, but Francona plays a large role as well for allowing guys to walk all over him. He is the man in charge and he should have demonstrated it. Hell, maybe something like that would have fired up the team.

    Gonzalez was the team MVP until his injury, then he faded fast – and didn’t seem to do much for the club house.

    Tito’s run in boston ran it’s course.

    When you have been there for close to ten years & you are burnt out,stress on family,health problems related to managing in boston,wich isall well known,then you say in public that you couldn’t get through to the team,in addition to other things,a slap on the wrist,with a promise to do better isn’t going to happen.

    Somebody had to take the fall & tito was the lowest on that pole.

    In addition,he wanted out.

    The bottom line is,if lester & becket pitched like aces til the end,they are in the playoffs.

    They didn’t need anything else to happen.

    Triple,

    They needed Beltre more than Gonzales, as the season has proven….Youkilis wasn’t physicaly able to man the hot corner…Vmart would have given them some flexibilty ( both at first and C positions )….They should have concentrated on getting pitching deph. But the flashy transactions became more appealing to them than fielding a better team

  212. Red Robin October 1st, 2011 at 7:29 pm

  213. GreenBeret7 October 1st, 2011 at 7:30 pm

    People knock Cashman about Burnett, but, Burnett came up big in ’09 and in two of his PS starts. I don’t know how much value the Steinbrenners and Cashman put on titles, but, at least that one season, it paid off. Don’t forget that NYY didn’t have this motherlode of young pitching talent to use in NY or trade for other needs in ’09. The other option was worse than burnett…Derek Lowe. since then, there really hasn’t been many solid rotation help available. Toronto was never going to trade Halladay within the division and certainly not to NY. Lee, most likely had no intention of coming to NY. Pettitte retiring hurt more or as much as not getting Lee.

  215. EA October 1st, 2011 at 7:30 pm

    We didn’t “need” Teixieira in 2008.

    Getting Tex caused Swisher to become a bench player until Nady went down. Did we really “need” Vazquez and the prospects he cost after winning the WS rather than handing spots to Joba and Hughes?

    Did they really “need’ Lee this year when they already had a $170 million dollar ace?

    Yankees and Sox expenditure is always excessive because they want to win the WS every year and anything less is a failure.

  219. Yogi Mantle October 1st, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    I think Cashman has done a better job with looking at the total package of the player being looked at. With CC, he not only wanted him for the pitching talent, but for the leadership character. Same in the trade for Granderson. He saw the potential for Granderson, but also looked at the type of person he was.

    Burnett’s signing made some sense in that a starter was needed, and even then Pettitte was no sure thing for going another season. Burnett also has never shied away from being responsible for his outings. While it is frustrating to see what he does, at least he owns it.

  220. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 1st, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    Radio Kev — agree about Tito.

    “Didn’t the ’04 Sox do shots of Jack before those games they took from us? I guess Tito just trusted them to be more responsible without looking over their shoulders too much and things got out of hand..”

    Good point about the Jack Daniels. He should have stopped that crap, though the roid twins Fat Ortiz and Trying-to-get-pregnant Manny already had the games well in hand.

  221. ron October 1st, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    The lack of pitching debth,the buchholz injury & lester & becket falling apart at the end is why the rs did not make the playoffs.

    The bullpen is second.

    The players have to be held accountable as much as possible.

    They led the world in runs scored.

  222. Villa Nova-Ya October 1st, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    Swisher wasn’t “Swisher” when we got him. He was a total crap shoot by Cashman – hoping that his time in Chicago was a fluke.

    He was insurance in case ownership did not OK going after Tex, which was a possibility.

    Swisher got an opportunity when Nady went down and ran with it.

  223. GreenBeret7 October 1st, 2011 at 7:37 pm

    The Red sox were better off keeping Youkilis at first and Beltran at third and letting Martinez go, unless they wanted him as the catcher. Pitching killed them. Even if Lackey had turned around his ’10 season and Buchholz was healthy, there was no backup plans, except for a 45 year old knuckleballer with bad knees and a bad back. N ow, they have none of that.

    Yogi,

    Very good post

  226. Villa Nova-Ya October 1st, 2011 at 7:38 pm

    Because Swisher is not a first baseman by trade, strictly, and Giambi’s contract was done.

    The Yankees did need Teixeira.

  227. Triple Short of a Cycle October 1st, 2011 at 7:38 pm

    They needed Beltre more than Gonzales, as the season has proven

    ———————————————————–

    Gonzalez numbers dwarf Beltre’s numbers. Beltre was coming off a contract year and was older then Gonzalez. Youkolis gets hurt every year no matter what position he plays.

  228. EA October 1st, 2011 at 7:40 pm

    RadioKev,

    There were LOTS of stories about that 2004 Sox team. Francona needed to control his guys and he didn’t and he paid for it.

    While it is on the players to act professional, if the manager allows them to act anyway they want, it should be no surprise when things spiraled out of control.

    Tito was always praised for managing a clubhouse well because he “kept things in-house” and always “backed his players”. Well, looks protecting his players and not holding them accountable came back to hurt him.

  229. Yogi Mantle October 1st, 2011 at 7:41 pm

    EA, I don’t think Swisher was truly what the Yankees wanted covering 1st. With Teixeira it caused all kinds of additional headaches for Boston as it took the player they wanted, while it still filled a need for the Yankees.

    Given how the pitching worked out this year, Lee wasn’t exactly needed, but they knew Pettitte was retiring. Colon and Garcia were lucky pick ups, but if they got Lee to sign one of them wouldn’t have been on the team. Cashman knows depth in positions is a smart thing. Not having what he feels are able replacements in the minors has him making those moves.

  230. RadioKev October 1st, 2011 at 7:41 pm

    And, still, I maintain, he was not the ideal first baseman. Can you honestly say you were happy the Yankees signed Nick Swisher to be their first baseman?

    I love him now, and I know he was a good player with the A’s, but I was a little disappointed.

    Was Swisher really need with Nady here? Especially since he was tied up for 4 years at pretty decent money.

    “need” is an arbitrary word. What Yankees/Sox fans consider “need” is what the outside world considers “excessive”.

    The prevailing thought was that we needed Lee and should offer him whatever he wanted. The rest of the world was talking about how bad for baseball it was if we got him

  241. GreenBeret7 October 1st, 2011 at 7:46 pm

    It was no accident that Nunez was never included in any trade talks. Cashman knew that there were no options in the system and would get held up on the open market if he needed a replacement for Jeter or Rodriguez. Guess what? He needed Nunez for both. his defense was shakey, but, his offense usually sparked a rally. The defense will improve with the footwork.

    The Yanks got Swisher as a hedge for not getting Teixeira and also watching Nady struggle with the right handed pitchers and shaky defense. Nady went down and Swisher returned to his Oakland days. Perfect, he’s not, but, better than Nady has turned out to be and for a corner outfielder, puts up pretty decent numbers.

    This is why you don’t just throw in your prospects at any demand. Cashman knew the value of his pieces, and he didn’t budge – for good reason.

    “That’s a good idea Trisha. Pick a league and stick with it. I can’t do this again.”

    Villa, seriously, neither can I. It’s too all-consuming and by the time our game rolls round, I’m baseball drained!

  267. Villa Nova-Ya October 1st, 2011 at 8:08 pm

    AT least the Yankees pregame is Yankees oriented.

    And more likely to be optimistic about the Yankees.

    I just remembered myself that I could watch YES. Told y’all I was done. LOL

    “He didn’t need Crawford I agree but Gonzalez they def needed.”

    Thing is that in adding Gonzalez it led to other moves such as moving Youkallis back to 3B….a position he probably can’t stay at long term. Youkallis is a big part of their offense….he provides balance and he gets big hits and gets on base all the time.

    Their offense would have been better this year if they had had Beltre and Vmart than with Gonzalez and Crawford….primarily because Crawford was so bad…..whether that will continue we don’t know yet……but for now the trade off was a net loss for Boston….they got worse production and spent a lot more money

    Interestingly enough I haven’t heard a lot of player support for Tito. Maybe I just missed it? Not that I don’t believe he was really appreciated by most of them but maybe they are hiding out because they think their necks could be on the organization chopping block.

    francona did what torre should have done when management asked him to come in and tell them why they should keep him.

    he politely, keeping his good guy image intact, told them he wasn’t interested in going through the charade of them considering him.

    he knew he was done in boston, and he didn’t let lucchino play out the little song and dance he wanted to play before firing francona

    basically francona said” you can’t fire me, i quit”.

    Boy the Rays are starting to get a 2010 Giants feel to them…..it’s early in the playoffs but so far the parallel is a team that can’t hit…..suddenly hitting. Long way to go but they are taking it to the Rangers so far…..little surprising to me as I thought the Rangers would stomp them

    “None greater than Gibson’s decision to allow Kennedy to face Fielder in the seventh inning. Gibson said his gut told him to either walk Fielder or call on relief pitcher Joe Paterson, who had struck out Fielder three times in four at-bats this season. But Kennedy, who amazingly hadn’t issued a single intentional walk all season, talked his manager out of it when Gibson visited the mound before the at bat. “We had a conversation,” Kennedy said. “He asked me what I thought. Obviously I wanted to go after him. We talked about walking him, but I’m not going to do that.” One hung curveball later and a fan in the right field bleachers had a new souvenir, the Brewers had a 4-0 lead and Kennedy had a trip to the showers. Afterwards, his arm wrapped in ice, he still insisted it was the right call. “I just hung a curveball,” he said. “If I make my pitch there he either rolls over it or swings and misses it. But I hung it right down into the middle of his swing.” Gibson, on the other hand, second-guessed himself. “It was my decision to let him do it that way and it didn’t work out,” the manager said. “He threw probably his worst pitch of the game and [Fielder] put a good swing on it and hit it out of the park.”

    “I made a poor decision. And sometimes, you know, that’s how the game goes. There’s another game tomorrow. We’ll be optimistic. We’ll be upbeat. We’ll be prepared like we are every game and I’ll try to do a better job myself. That’s all you can do.” Gibson and Kennedy were also questioned about the decision to pitch to No. 8 hitter Jonathan Lucroy after Yuniesky Betancourt’s two-out triple in the sixth. Though Yovani Gallardo is among the better hitting pitchers in the league (.218 career average with nine home runs), he’s still a pitcher. Kennedy didn’t see it that way. “It was a guy who can’t really hit and Gallardo who can swing it a little bit, so there was no thought at all,” Kennedy said. Kennedy said he made the perfect pitch — and Gibson agreed — but Lucroy fought it off to drop a bloop single into left that scored Betancourt and gave Milwaukee a 2-0 lead.

    Looks like Ian Kennedy hasn’t changed.

    “It was a guy who can’t really hit and Gallardo who can swing it a little bit, so there was no thought at all,” Kennedy said. ”

    Ugh. He’ll never learn. Happy he’s in Arizona. Definitely has that “smoked too much weed in my younger day and now I’m fried and say whatever comes into my head, even though it may come across as arrogant or irresponsible” way about him.

    I kind of get the impression he’s one of those guys who hardly ever if ever admits he was wrong. But I don’t really care about Kennedy, he no longer pitches for the Yankees.

  303. Yankee Trader October 1st, 2011 at 8:25 pm

    Rangers finally making some noise. Bases loaded no outs

  304. hairy lucchino October 1st, 2011 at 8:25 pm

    are we the only team that doesnt do some stupid shtick on a double, triple, or great play in the field towards the dugout?

  305. YankeeRay October 1st, 2011 at 8:25 pm

    If the Yanks can win the first 2 games I would start Burnett in game 3 and CC in game 4. Give him an extra day of rest and sacrifice Burnett against Verlander. CC to close it out and if AJ gives us a win then we are in great shape with CC and Nova at home in games 1 and 2 in ALCS.

    Any thoughts?

    YankeeRay – that’s not a bad scenario. Others might argue to go with CC for the kill.

    I’d love to be up 2-0. My own opinion – go for the kill.

  313. luis October 1st, 2011 at 8:28 pm

  315. Wang IS Taiwan October 1st, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    Looks like Ian Kennedy hasn’t changed.

    ~~~~~~~~

    I’m sure his success has only added to his arrogance. I hated his ‘tude while he was in NY.

    Regardless, pitchers are never going to say, “yeah, let’s walk him.” If they do, they risk damaging their own self-confidence.

  316. Yogi Mantle October 1st, 2011 at 8:30 pm

    Shields is a good pitcher, but he can get rattled. That is why I question the “Big Game James” moniker. Even if he gets out of this inning with limited damage, he still had to pitch a lot to do so.

  317. Yankee Trader October 1st, 2011 at 8:30 pm

    YankeeRay.
    If the Yankees win tonight, I expect them to go to Detroit up 2-0.
    Burnett pitched 1 game in Detroit this season. 7 innings 3 hits 2 earned runs.
    I’d be okay with Burnett in game 3, as all the pressure will be on Verlander to save the series one more day.

  318. ZachA October 1st, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    Jackson and Young also worse against righties. That means batters 1-2-3-7-9 all worse against the righty.

  322. hairy lucchino October 1st, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    joe, you also take the chance that you can get lucky and close it out against Verl without CC so you could possibly start game 1 of alcs with CC. but again, im getting too far ahead of myself. today, today

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.

    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.

    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.

    Classic colors and crisp gingham trim make this a stocking to remember for baby’s first Christmas. I love the applique reindeer and stitched snowflakes. They’re child like but will still blend in with most holiday decor. Baby’s name goes on the white band at the top, in rich red embroidered letters.
