Are you serious?

Which was most impressive? Was it rolling a frying pan like a burrito? Ripping a license plate in half? Tearing a phone book into two pieces? Pulling a soda can apart?

“Everybody was looking at each other like, are you serious?” Robinson Cano said.

Before today’s game, the Yankees were visited by motivational speaker Donnie Moore, who works as a chapel leader for the Oakland A’s but delivered a religion-free message about determination. To punctuate the message, Moore performed feats of strength.

“He talked about having a vision and believing in yourself,” Girardi said. “My guess is, if you don’t believe you can do that, as tough as it is, I don’t think it’s going to happen. I think to be successful in this game, you have to push yourself to a limit. And I think that’s what some of his demonstrations are. He’s pushing himself to a limit. You’re not going to see me try it.”

In the past, the Yankees have brought Navy Seals, Army Rangers and Olympian Michael Johnson to speak to the team during spring training. Girardi has known Moore for more than 20 years and had seen him speak in the past, but even Girardi was stunned by the rolled frying pan.  

“You figure, if each guy takes one little thing of what he says, it’s a success,” Girardi said. “Everyone is motivated different ways. You talk about a vision, you talk about a goal, but it’s not always the same people talking about it. It’s a different voice of people that come in. I can talk about it and Jeet can talk about it and Al can talk about it, but at some point during the course of the year, you want a different voice.”

Does it make a difference?

“It really helps,” Cano said. “Especially in baseball, you’re going to struggle more than once, so if you send a positive message to yourself like, ‘I’m going to get out of this and I’m going to be good,’ you’re going to get out of it. The more you think, ‘Can I get out of this’ or ‘I’m in a slump,’ the more you’re going to stay in it.”

    I still think that the great Jerry Lucas would have been a better motivational speaker. Especially on memorization and focus.

    Here’s the motivational speaker rolling a frying pan. Hopefully, the Yanks can use this to lead the league in rolled frying pans. For those old enough to remember him, I would have had NBA HOFer Jerry Lucas to talk. amazing man. He memerorized all of the biggest phone books in the country by name, address, phone number and page. Great speaker and he had a huge connection to George Steinbrenner too.

    It’s a bit of a long story, but, he was born and raised in Ohio, A+ student through high school. Played high school basketball and had more than 150 scholarship offers. He only wanted to play basketball for the free education. Adolph Rupp, HOF coach made one of his rare recruiting trips to see Lucas and Lucas told him to go home. Lucas was 17. He said he wasn’t going to sign with anyone that tried to pressure him to go to their school with personal visits.

    When GMS was trying to help get the ABL off the ground, he bought into the league to put a team in Cleveland. He signed Lucas to a contract that gave him money a free scholarship, but also stock in the team. Lucas was 18 years old. The league collapsed before Cleveland played, though. GMs was spending money even in 1961 with innovative contracts.

    When I was a senior in high school, my principal caught a group of us playing cards in study hall.

    He didn’t say a word. Instead, he gathered up all the cards and ripped the entire deck in half right in front of us. He put the two halves back on the table and went about his business.

    He ceased being the butt of our jokes from that point forward.

  3. blake March 7th, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    G. Love,

    I agree…Montero and Pineda will be forever tied to one another….its just they way it is. I heard Jack Z on the radio the other day and he really seems somewhat indifferent about him catching…..I think they just wanted the bat and if he catches that’s gravy …..

  4. GreenBeret7 March 7th, 2012 at 6:31 pm

    H-Wired, the man had to have strong hands and fingers for that. Must have gotten the strength from swinging that paddle.

    Just curious, he ceased to be butt of the joke because 1. that’s an impressive thing to do as GB alluded. Or. 2. this demonstrated he can kick your ass at will if he so dispose to. 3. both 4. Neither.

  7. G. Love March 7th, 2012 at 6:48 pm

    blake – It was difficult hearing Mariners coaches, the radio hosts and the players talk about Montero anchoring their lineup right now. On the Yankees, we’d be lucky if Girardi gave him at bats and let him hit about 7 in some plan to make him earn it.

    Granted, the M’s stink, but any player that young who a franchise from top to bottom is talking like he’s their Pujols makes me seriously wonder WTF the Yankees were thinking dealing him when their offense turns dead when they need it in the post season the past 2 years.

    I still think a middle of the order cornerstone offensive player is worth more than an Ace pitcher. They get paid more. They get longer contracts. A lot of them, aren’t brilliant defensive wizards at their positions.

    The M’s party line was we wanted Montero and were willing to do whatever it took to get him.

    When you hear another org that excited about a player and then you hear our team call Pineda fat and a work in progress, you start to wonder…

    I really want Pineda to be great so we can all forget about Montero and watch the Yankees win with stellar pitching.

  8. luis March 7th, 2012 at 6:51 pm

    Munson15,

    If you are still around i missed your last post in the previous thread. Had to leave the office and go home, i love your handle by the way.

    Yes, they 7 WS….The first two because they used the recently instituted FA as a very good tool to get the players to go back to the WS, but then they abused it and hurt the Farm system as a result. The other 5, 4 came after he was suspended and allowed a very smart front office headed by Gene Michaels and Gabe Paul to rebuild the farms and have the core we have enjoyed in the past 17 years, complemented by very intelligent FA signings and trades. After he came back, they went back to the FA model, as a result the farms became barren again and we won squat for a number of years until Cashman asked for more power in the baseball operations to rebuild the farm, with another wave of FA signings we won in 09 again. We are about to rip the fruits of that effort ( Montero’s trade not withstanding ). Is not spending for the sake of spending that rips results….It is the smart spending that is going to allow this team to stay dominant in the future.

  9. Crawdaddy March 7th, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    What else do the Mariners supposed to say about this trade? Of course they made the trade for Montero’s bat, their lineup sucks and the players they’re counting on turning that around are young players so they’re saying the right things with eternal hope in order to generate some excitement among their fanbase.

    They can say whatever they want, but the final evaluation of this trade is going to be based on the future performances of the players traded.

  10. Crawdaddy March 7th, 2012 at 6:54 pm

    Future performances of the players traded from both sides.

  16. Yankee Trader March 7th, 2012 at 7:03 pm

    Just finished Donnie Moore curling a frying pan from the link Chad supplied. Not too shabby.

    Also just watched Kuroda’s outing today, which wasn’t as bad as the stats seem to indicate. !st inning strikeout, broken bat out, ground out 9 pitches. 2nd inning had Cano played a little more to his left and Jeter had more on a weak jump throw, no-on who have been on for the only clean hit a triple.

    What was the consensus here? Of course I hope the Yankees give him more run support during the season than the Dodgers did.

  17. GreenBeret7 March 7th, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    Not the best of news for the Braves. Tommy Hanson with a partial rotator cuff tear.

  18. Yankee Trader March 7th, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    How did Yuri Geller bend things with his mind? LSD?

  19. MTU March 7th, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    Montero is going to be Edgar Martinez

    And Pineda is going to be Juan Marichal.

    Sorry… just channeling my inner Bret.

  28. luis March 7th, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    YT,

    Unfortunately I wasn’t able to see him, but as far as know he was sitting in 93 with his fastball and has a very good splitter.

  29. MTU March 7th, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    GB-

    Yeah. I think Geller was exposed as fraud by a professional magician.

    It would be kinda handy to move things w/o touching them though.

    Lot’s of applications.

    ;)

  30. Yankee Trader March 7th, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    Kuroda works fast, induced a lot of ground balls, was around the plate and had two strikouts on the splitter.

    The little I saw of Yu Darvish pitching strictly from the stretch was pretty mpressive.

    Clay Rapada had the only clean inning today for the Yankees. How did he look?

  31. MTU March 7th, 2012 at 7:15 pm

    Luis-

    That was me who asked.

    ;)

  32. Yankee Trader March 7th, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Luis-

    Kuroda was throwing fairly easily. I believe he was around 89 except once or twice when he dialed it up to 93. They weren’t showing the radar gun with any regularity.

    Not sure if it’s the same injury getting worse or and entirely new injury.

    I saw it on this. Not sure where it originated. I know that he flunked his concussion exams.

    If they REALLY want a second loogy, I hope they take Rapada.

    Oh yeah?

    I didn’t see it but his acquisition hasn’t really excited me. I figured coming over from the NL west and giving some time for adjusting to a new team he wouldn’t be much of an upgrade over AJ.

    Then again you could barely fill a thimble with what I know.

    And he actually knows where the ball is going.

    ;)

  39. Jerkface March 7th, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    Kuroda has the stuff to succeed anywhere. Viewing him as a product of the NL is a mistake. Rare for guys that throw 93 with good command and a devastating split to be a simple product of their environment.

  40. luis March 7th, 2012 at 7:23 pm

    JF,

    I rather want them to take the best pitcher, we don’t need a second loogy. We’ve got plenty of pitchers that handle very well lefthanded batters.

  41. Jerkface March 7th, 2012 at 7:23 pm

    Tommy Hanson’s torn rotator cuff was from last year. The change in mechanics is from this spring.

  42. MTU March 7th, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    I said that above.

    Some magician showed how a trick could accomplish the same thing.

    I rather want them to take the best pitcher, we don’t need a second loogy. We’ve got plenty of pitchers that handle very well lefthanded batters.

    I’d rather they take the best PLAYER, not necessarily a pitcher. I think:

    MO
    D-rob
    Soriano
    Wade
    Logan
    Garcia/whomever

    is enough for the bullpen

    Cervelli
    Jones/Ibanez
    Nunez
    Chavez

    For bench. I’d like to see them grab another bench spot maybe.

    I believe from what I’ve read in the Atlanta papers that it’s an old injury for Hanson and the Braves have tweaked his delivery to lesssen the strain. He used to have a violent delivery like Jake Peavy.

    Interestingly it was Tommy Hanson’s rookie game against the Yankees in June of 2009, that embarrased them so much, that Cashman chewed out the troops and the Yankees turned their season around. Posada had the Golden Sombrero that game, a shutout.

  47. Bronx Jeers March 7th, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    Why could he only secure a 1 year deal?

    Is he gonna provide more than Freddy did last season?

  48. luis March 7th, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    JF,

    I don’t know…..If you don’t take another arm you might risk taxing the BP to much and too early. Especially the way Girardi manages….He loves his match ups

  49. stuckey March 7th, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    If a choice between am effective LOOGY and and the better overall pitcher, I’m actually going counter-intuitively with the LOOGY, because I think Yankees are going to get into the back of their bullpen REALLY infrequently.

    I think an arm to get a big lefty in a big spot will be more useful than a guy whose only going to see occasional mop-up duty.

    I could endorse an extra bench player if someone in ST we aren’t expecting hits out of their mind and you want to ride the hot hand, like if Almonte or Garner remain hot, or what’s is face (the lefty) comes back and has a strong spring.

  50. Jerkface March 7th, 2012 at 7:32 pm

    Why could he only secure a 1 year deal?

    Is he gonna provide more than Freddy did last season?

    He is 37 and has wavered between returning to Japan & staying in the states the past 2 offseasons. I think a 1 year deal suits him. He had better offers from other teams and chose the Yankees.

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

    Are you talking about Kuroda?….Age… Nobody wants to have a late 30′s pitcher signed to a long term contract i guess.

  52. Yankee Trader March 7th, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    If Joba comes back in May, rather than June, with the usual days off early in the schedule., the Yankees might go with only 11 pitchers in April.

    I see where Rapada had 2 strikouts in 1.1 innings. Were any vs. righties?

    I agree that the yankees shouldn’t waste a spot on a LOOGY.

    If the Yankees drop Ibanez in ST do they owe him the full amount of his guaranteed contract?

  53. Jerkface March 7th, 2012 at 7:34 pm

    Cole Garner for 25th man! He has the strength of 25 men!

    I agree with you on that theory, Stuckey. A really good LOOGY like Rapada might provide more leverage and big spot shut down ability than a guy that is only going to pitch the 5th-6th or in blow outs.

  54. MTU March 7th, 2012 at 7:35 pm

    Jeers-

    Don’t know the answer to either of those questions.

    I can say his stuff is way better than Garcia’s and he has savy.

    He’s been around the Sushi bar a few times.

    What you have to ask is whether Garcia would provide more than Hughes ?

    My answer to that is I hope not.

    ;)

  55. Jerkface March 7th, 2012 at 7:35 pm

    Pettitte didn’t sign any long term deals when he was 37. Its about what the player wants. Guy has been nothing but money since coming to the US.

    ——
    I think he will provide more than freddy did last season. I base this on his stuff which i think will be play fine anywhere. In small sample, Kuroda has fair well against AL east opponents… matters of fact, I was impressed with by way he pitches against the Sox and Yankees last 2 years.

    as far as 1 year contract goes, he sign one year with the dodgers last year as well for similar dollars. Maybe age has something to do with it,,

    I knew that he had injured his shoulder last year, but, didn’t know that they have labeled it as a rotator cuff tear. If it lets go, he’s in trouble. That’s what ended Mel Stottlemyre’s career at a pretty early age. Braves have starter issues with Hanson and Hudson at least. They’re going to have to depend on a lot of rookies and hope they can stay close to the Phillies. Knee injury to Freeman isn’t helping their offense.

  58. Yankee Trader March 7th, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    Yankees catcher Russell Martin told Heyman that he was pleased to see the Cardinals recognize the value of Yadier Molina’s all-around game with a $75MM deal (Twitter link). “He kind of set the bar,” Martin said.

    And then there is Joe Mauer!

  59. stuckey March 7th, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    And I like Logan, but I don’t think he’s reached ‘sure thing’ stage yet

    Let Rapada go and he takes his consistent LOOGY excellence someplace else and you count solely on Logan for getting someone like Agon with men on in the bottom of the six.

    The starting braves pitching staff could thin out in a hurry. Hudson recuperating from lumbar disc surgery, Hanson retooling his mechanics, Jurrjins pitching with no cartilage in his right knee, Teheran gave up 6 homers in his 1st ST start……………

    MTU, you may be thinking of Johnny Carson, an old amateur magician himself, who thwarted any trickery by Geller during an appearance by picking out the spoons for him to bend.

    Geller failed.

  65. Bronx Jeers March 7th, 2012 at 7:48 pm

    Thanks guys. Hiro seems like a sweet guy and a real pro. I just haven’t really thought about him yet as a Yankee and what his potential impact will be. Sounds like he could be a big help.

    It will be also good to have all the cute mama-sans back at the Stadium. :wink:

    Well Randy may have mastered one trick.

    Let’s see him make Wratchett disappear.

    Desperate people do desperate things. I was desperate and Randy was an easy target.

    Luis, Tex had an .850 OPS last year which is good (if not great) any way you slice it.

    No reason to think he can’t do as well if not better in 2013-2014.

    These 2014 fears are based on the assumption Tex continues a downward decline.

    YT,

    Not sure, but i think is the whole contract

    The way I figure it her level of ugly could bend anyones spoon.

    Permanently.

    That’s if you didn’t just die of fright first.

    The Braves are giving Heyward every chance to turn his season around. They were looking for another corner OF bat to supplant Matin Prado and a SS-now handing the job to a rookie.

    Also the Braves, I believe, are close to their ownership mandate on their spending ceiling.

    I’m looking forward to a Linfusion of that good feeling that we had a while ago. Hopefully Melo doesn’t see a lot of playing time tonight. Yeah, that’s the ticket!

    Let Martin walk and sign someone like Jose Molina/Ronnie Paulino to be the bridge to Romine

    Yes, it is an assumption, but Tex swing is not going to age well…I saw that he is working on it and it seems that he has leveled it a little bit, but he hasn’t eliminated the collapsing of his back leg which he has been doing his whole life( old habits are hard to break). This means that we can expect his OPS to decline. Arod is well…36 going on 37. and Jeter is 37….Age is not on their side. Who is going to complement Cano?
