Sunday notes: Not exactly protecting the plate

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Feb 26, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Position players faced live pitching for the first time today, but these early batting practice sessions are about seeing as much as swinging. Hitters often take every pitch, working on their timing and pitch recognition as much as anything.

The first group to take BP this afternoon consisted of every big league outfielder. Brett Gardner, Curtis Granderson, Andruw Jones, Raul Ibanez and Nick Swisher took their hacks against likely Triple-A starter Adam Warren. Gardner had everyone laughing when he said Warren’s fastball looked like it was in the 80s. In reality, for hitters not used to seeing live pitching, it felt much closer to 100.

“I wasn’t throwing too many inside fastballs,” Warren joked.

Last thing a young pitcher wants to do is fling one off the starting center fielder’s head.

“The first time a hitter gets in there, you want them to just to feel comfortable,” Joe Girardi said. “It’s a different look than what they’ve had the last three or four months playing catch or throwing off a mound. They’re not throwing to hitters, so it’s a different look – then there’s the screen in front of them, which a lot of them don’t like. I don’t make too much of it. My biggest concern is that they’re able to throw strikes and that they don’t hit people.”

• Girardi said he’s planning to announce the early spring rotation tomorrow.

• Mariano Rivera threw 22 pitches today. Girardi said he also thought this was earlier than usual for Rivera to be on a mound, but he was told that last spring was more of an exception and this is closer to Rivera’s usual routine. Ultimately, he’s not too concerned about the timing. “I’m pretty sure that he knows what he needs to do,” Girardi said. “And when he says he’s ready to go out there, he’s ready to go. I’m not alarmed.”

• I realize all the best-shape-of-my-life stories get old, and they quite often mean nothing, but the Yankees really do have a lot of guys in noticeably better shape this spring and it’s hard to ignore that. Mark Teixeira, Phil Hughes and Nick Swisher stand out, but Eduardo Nunez is also noticeably stronger. He’s moving closer to Robinson Cano than Ramiro Pena. Nunez said he put on about 14 pounds of muscle without losing any of his speed. He didn’t play winter ball, and just worked out with Cano instead.

• Notice I said closer to Cano, not close to Cano. To be clear, the Yankees second baseman is still quite a bit bigger than the Yankees utility man.

• I spent most of my time on the main field today and didn’t see pitchers fielding practice on the back field. Apparently there were some sloppy moments. “There were a couple throws, making sure guys set their feet,” Girardi said. “…Some guys just don’t throw to the bases as well as they should. That’s why we practice it. It’s a different velocity, a different mindset than they’re used to throwing all the time.”

• Rob Thomson has been taking all of the outfielders through a glove-free drill in the mornings. He tosses the ball to their left or right, and the outfielders have to chase them down and make the catch barehanded. He did that a lot when Justin Maxwell was the only outfielder in camp, and it’s continued now that all of the position players are here.

• David Aardsma is expected to report to camp tomorrow. He should be the final arrival for a full house.

    As bad as LoHud (sniping) is now (during the winter), I can’t imagine what next Sunday will be like. If they win, it doesn’t mean crap. If they lose, everyone is totally useless and needs to be dumped, starting with Cashman and Girardi.

  2. tomingeorgia February 26th, 2012 at 4:17 pm

    GB7,They play the Phils on Saturday on mlb.tv, so it will all start a day earlier.

    Snipe all you want, as long it’s about baseball, not politics.

    I, too hope that Montero sucks just so that we are not haunted in the future. While it would be nice to teach Hal/Cashman/Girardi a lesson, it is not worth the rage that we’ll experience everyday when Montero becomes Cano with power in the Pacific Northwest while our lineup deteriorates before our eyes with no way to fix it.
    ///

    You want them taught a lesson? Wow, you aim low :D.

    I want the two management guys fired.

    And you’re going to be doubly disappointed: first, because he’s not going to suck, and a second time, because we are going to be filled with rage when he continues to be the extreme opposite of suck.

    Bad attitude.

  22. Rich in NJ February 26th, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    “Just imagine how this place will react when Pineda gives up a home run.”

    Similar to how Montero (or any other Yankee) would be treated if they didn’t perform well, relative to the leverage of the situation.

    Let’s not pretend that any Yankee player is immune to fans’ collective discontent, or conversely, their approval, if they do well.

    At the end of the day, it really doesn’t matter. Pineda, like every other player, will rise or fall based on his own performance.

    Anyone know a good place to see spring training photos? All this talk makes me want to get a look at everyone in camp, but I have only seen the few photos here…

    Tom, I use an S-to-Video cable because I don’t have Hi-Definition TV. Depending on your equipment, here’s some things to look at:

    For those that do follow the minors, MiLB.com is well worth the $30 a year subscription. A lot of AAA tv broadcasts and almost all of the teams radio vroadcasts. Tampa Yanks don’t have a radio feed.

    Chad, do you have any info on whether outfielder Cody Johnson is still in the organization or not? The guys is a fair right fielder and huge power, but, those are some ugly strikeout totals.

  31. LockDown February 26th, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    I have mlb.tv & a samsung blu ray. You just download the Mlb app & sign in and you can watch every game on your tv through the blu ray . It keeps it there too so you can go back and watch any game whenever you want.

    Wow, Andruw looks great. Hope he has a great year.

  33. J. Alfred Prufrock February 26th, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    Jacoby Ellsbury is open to discussing a long-term deal to keep him in a Red Sox uniform beyond 2013, writes WEEI.com’s Alex Speier. Ellsbury said he leaves negotiations up to his agent, Scott Boras, but that he loves the city of Boston and its fans.

    Tom do you have a HMDI port on your TV? Looks like a wide USB post.

    If your PC is recent then it too should have an HMDI port.

    From the HMDI of my DELL to the same of my Samsung LCD HDTV

    Thats the route I go. Walmart has HMDI cables fairly cheap of course depending on the length you need.

    Andruw is looking pretty good. Can’t be full time though unless he improves dramatically vs rhp.

  38. RhapsodyInBlue February 26th, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    I know Pineda is a big man, but he doesn’t look overweight in those shots, unless the extra weight is in his legs. Phil looking quite fit too.

  39. Yanks78 February 26th, 2012 at 6:17 pm

    Honestly, Montero would have less flack than Pineda will if he gets off to a slow start

    Yankee fans loved Montero – even the casual ones who couldn’t name more than 10 players on the team knew who he was. Unlike a lot of prospects, no one wanted to see him traded for anyone (short of another young hitter at a premium position ala Upton), they wanted him to blossom here as a homegrown power hitter star, who also happens to fill a huge need on the team moving forward.

    I don’t think fans are unhappy with Pineda, just trading away a bat like Montero’s in the first place was shortsighted regardless of return (again, unless it was for another young bat of comparable talent).

    tomigeorgia-

    you can’t have too many gadgets.

    i have a mac mini with a HDMI port and a roku device.either one gets mlb.com on the tv.

    plus then you’re all set for netflix streaming movies too. or amazon streaming movies which now comes free with prime membership.

    plus there’s your smart phone. it’s really fun seeing how many devices you can get in play at one time :)

    kind of ticks off your wife or girlfriend though.

    “Unlike a lot of prospects, no one wanted to see him traded for anyone (short of another young hitter at a premium position ala Upton), they wanted him to blossom here as a homegrown power hitter star, who also happens to fill a huge need on the team moving forward.”

    Is there any poll that reflects position?

    I’m genuinely asking. There must have been polls, has conducted amongst Yankees fans that suggest reception of this trade is largely negative.

    Again, I’m REALLY asking…

  43. tomingeorgia February 26th, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    Or both.

  44. stuckey February 26th, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    “because we are going to be filled with rage when he continues to be the extreme opposite of suck.”

    It’ll be manufactured rage, because anticipating being “enraged” about something you already know is a distinct possibility isn’t actually rage, it’s theater.

    Q: Will these zones be the vector for reform in China? A: Other cities may well set up zones over time, and a patchwork of zones with liberal business regulation, more open investment rules and freer yuan convertibility would definitely be a good thing. However, we are yet to be convinced that such zones will be the primary driver of reform in China. Their expansion will take time, their scale will be small compared with the broader economy and it is unlikely that the zones will have a major impact on activity outside of them.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    It’s a part of China’s strategy to become a world leader in clean cars in the next 10 years. To that end, the government has reportedly pledged 100 billion yuan (US$15 billion) in investment, mostly aimed at domestic vehicle manufacture. “The move is a further demonstration of government support for new energy vehicles,” said Bai Xiaolin, analyst from Guotai Jun’an Securities Co. “China’s domestic carmakers will benefit because a major portion of fuel-efficient vehicles are cars with small engine replacements, a mainstay of domestic players.”

    Managing director of The Heat Group, distributor for Max Factor, coverGirl, Bourjois and Red Earth cosmeticsIf our eyes are truly the window to the soul, no one knows better than that eyeshadow is the window dressing. That’s just one grooming tip this beauty executive has passed on to her teenage daughters, Ashleigh, Nicole and Samantha.Gillian’s sense of style has also shaped the bathrooms of the family’s National Trust listed home in south east Melbourne. One bathroom, part of a large extension to the century old property, is now shared by Samantha and Nicole.”Because the two girls are still at school and need to be ready at the same time, their bathroom has two wash basins, two mirrors and plenty of sockets for hair dryers and straighteners,” says Gillian. “And, of course, there are masses of cupboard space to contain all their clutter.”Timber floorboards and lacy curtains echo the heritage spirit of the marble spa bath and vanity. French doors open to the garden, allowing the girls to walk straight from the pool to the shower. “Hopefully,” adds Gillian, “they don’t use the same route to sneak out at night!”Sophie HuntManaging director of Hunt Leather, importer and retailer of Longchamp, Lupo and other brands of luxury leatherware and luggageJayne Mansfield, the 1950s screen siren, was said to fill her heart shaped bath with pink champagne for a twice weekly soak. To Sophie Hunt, mum to two young children, that would constitute ‘princess’ behaviour. However, she does admit to some extravagance of her own, when it comes to the size of the main bathroom in her renovated house in Sydney’s inner west.”It’s enormous for an inner city location the size of a small bedroom,” she says. “The double shower is the best decision I have ever made, followed closely by the installation of underfloor heating. It takes the chill out of the room in winter, and is also a great boon when you have to get up at night during pregnancy.”The double shower offers a chance for Sophie and her husband, Andrew, a teacher, to share some extra time together daily. “We try to do everything together,” says Sophie, “and that extends to showering and brushing our teeth in tandem.”Sophie’s inspiration for the decor came from a 300 year old house in Tuscany. “Ithad the most beautiful bathroom I’ve ever seen,” she says. “They really appreciate room sized bathrooms there.”The Italian influence is also evident in the choice of travertine flooring from Aeria Country Floors. The tiles form part of a sophisticated earthy palette in the bathroom and its adjoining storage area. “It’s hard to describe the paint colours,” says Sophie. “Off grey and taupey mauve probably give the most accurate representation.”Other decorative features include an array of storage units which run the gamut from traditional to modern, curtains from Vivalino in Sydney (“my favourite hunting ground for soft furnishings,” declares Sophie) and striking artworks.”I think every room in the house including the bathroom should contain a few paintings or prints,” explains Sophie.”I come from a family of seafarers, so sailing themes are a typical choice.”Managing director of Elisabeth Arden AustraliaWhen and his wife, Susan, first walked into the “massive” bathroom of the beachside house in eastern Sydney that became their home last year, it was a proverbial case of love at first sight.Susan, a sales and training assistant for Christian Dior’s duty free cosmetics division, recalls her first impression: “There were two wash basins, a full size bathtub our previous home didn’t have one at all and a huge antique style buffet to store our rather extensive collection of beauty products.” In short, there was no need for the family to change a thing.”The bathroom is a real centre of activity in our home. George gets up at the crack of dawn to go for a walk before work, so he’s the first to use the shower every day. We use the bathroom for work, too, as we both bring home plenty of products to try out,” Susan explains. “And for our children, one year old Sienna and three year old Gregory, the bathroom is very much a play space, particularly after a day at the beach.”Elegant sand coloured tiles contrast with a classic white bathroom suite and retro chrome tapware to create a stylish yet laid back space.”Fortunately, we already owned towels to match enormous, fluffy wrap around ones from Sheridan,” says Susan. “Another plus was that all the taps and fittings were rounded, so there was no danger of the children hurting themselves on sharp edges.”The vintage dark timber storage unit ensures that the room is clutter free.”George is a very neat person. He needs to be, considering all of the products he brings home to test!” laughs Susan.?Batman is spot on
