Pregame notes: Quiet morning in Tampa

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Notes on Mar 25, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The clubhouse was open to the media early this morning, and as you might expect, things were pretty quiet in there. It’s a Sunday, first pitch is still nearly three and half hours away, and we seem to have reach the point where guys are wanting the season to get started. Spring training might be necessary, but it starts to drag these last couple of weeks.

So far, notes are pretty light this morning. That’s probably a good thing.

• No update on Joba Chamberlain, who’s scheduled to be released from the hospital today. I’m sure we’ll hear about it when he gets out (or if the doctors decide to keep him a little longer).

• As he was hoping, Andy Pettitte was able to throw his light side today. He’s starting get into his regular-season routine, including a light side between batting practice sessions.

• Also as expected, Derek Jeter is in the lineup. It will be his second game back from a tender left calf. Joe Girardi has said Jeter will play five innings today.

• Curtis Granderson walked quietly to check today’s lineup. He showed absolutely no emotion upon seeing his name batting second and playing center field — no surprise there, obviously — but he actually shouted “Ohhh!” and pointed at the bottom of the order when he saw Eduardo Nunez listed for right field.

• Dave Robertson will pitch this afternoon, making only his second appearance of the spring because of his foot injury. Manny Delcarmen is also scheduled to pitch today.

• Today’s sides: Pettitte, Adam Warren, Ivan Nova and Hiroki Kuroda. Brad Meyers and Cory Wade are each throwing batting practice today.

• Today’s available pitchers: Michael Pineda, Mariano Rivera, Rafael Soriano, Dave Robertson, Manny Delcarmen, Clay Rapada, George Kontos, Pat Venditte, Phil Wetherell and Branden Pinder.

• Today’s second string: C Jose Gil, 1B Eric Chavez, 2B Bill Hall, SS Doug Bernier, 3B Brandon Laird, LF Jayson Nix, CF Dewayne Wise, RF Chris Dickerson

    Mr. Chad Jennings,

    Do you mean, “Quiet morning in Tampa”?

    F ! ! !

  2. randy l. March 25th, 2012 at 10:11 am

    conan the grammarian-

    i’m surprised you showed up here again after the drubbing trisha gave you the other night .

    maybe you’ll do better the next time you tangle with her.

    i was surprised you gave in so easily last time.

    maybe it was just a bad night.

  3. Tar March 25th, 2012 at 10:14 am

    “maybe it was just a bad night.”

    Nah, she’s just better than him.

    Mybe we shuld drive him crazy real, and typs likes GB. :D

  4. Rich in NJ March 25th, 2012 at 10:33 am

    If they refuse to have Maxwell make the 25 man, Nunez should be playing a lot of OF.

  5. randy l. March 25th, 2012 at 10:41 am

    “Mybe we shuld drive him crazy real, and typs likes GB.”

    tar-

    i’m just trying to bait him into butting heads with trisha and keeping her busy .

    for me that’s a win /win situation :)

  6. Crawdaddy March 25th, 2012 at 10:44 am

    So much for telling other posters about good posting etiquette.

    so pineda is pitching today.

    i’m not caring about the velocity questions, but i assume that’s the thing mainstream media is looking for.

    pineda keeps increasing his velocity enough each start to keep it a moot point as far as i’m concerned.

    i’m still looking for a lot of change ups to be thrown.
    i don’t care if he gets hammered. i would like to see him get someone out when they are looking for the change and get it.
    that would show the change is doing what it’s supposed to do.

  9. Bret The Hitman March 25th, 2012 at 10:46 am

    From the last thread. While we’re on the subject of teams possibly offering inflated returns for Pineda, Nova or Hughes and assuming everyone is available for the right price…

    What do you think a team interested in Nova would offer?

    And what about Hughes?

    With Nova I think a team would offer a solid young OF but the guy wouldn’t be much of an upgrade over Melky Cabrera who can be signed for money alone with the Yankees keeping Nova.

    With Hughes I think a cost-controlled borderline starter like Chase Headley is about the most a team would offer.

  10. Crawdaddy March 25th, 2012 at 10:46 am

    Cashman confirms from Joba’s doctor that he’s getting released from hospital today.

  11. Rich in NJ March 25th, 2012 at 10:50 am

    Given this remarkable turn of events, I would tink Joba’s doctor’s trade value has gone up.

  12. Bret The Hitman March 25th, 2012 at 10:50 am

    And assuming Melky matches his first .300 season in 2012, would fans get excited about a reunion? I have a hunch most fans at the stadium (who don’t follow online) would be happy. LOHUD is another story. Melky is still a favorite whipping boy for many.

    crawdaddy-

    you do realize i’ve spent most of my life on athletic fields where the other side is always the enemy?

    it’s laughable that you think you can rag on me and that it will have an effect.

    Joba Chamberlain will be released from hospital today. Non-weight bearing hard cast for 6 weeks, weight- bearing walking boot after that.

  16. Crawdaddy March 25th, 2012 at 10:54 am

    Randy,

    Listen former ballplayer, what you did 25-30 years ago means nothing to us today and I don’t care how many pitching coaches you drank or roomed with.

    Also, ragging on you is more to do with calling your hypocrisy out as this blog’s biggest instigator.

  17. Rich in NJ March 25th, 2012 at 10:55 am

    MY

    Ibanez

  18. mick March 25th, 2012 at 10:55 am

    nova reminds of old time yankees who weren’t the stars with the high ceilings like a ford, or mantle, or maris, but more like a tony kubek, or moose skowron or roy white. these guys handle the ny pressure and go about their business year in and year out and put up solid numbers over a long career.
    =====================================
    it’s called humility. also called facing reality. nova has the self confidence to stare an opportunity in the eye and make the most of it. he realizes his time will come.

  19. randy l. March 25th, 2012 at 10:55 am

    “. Melky is still a favorite whipping boy for many.”

    i always liked melky.

    but he’s going to be expensive in a hurry because he came up so young.

  20. mick March 25th, 2012 at 10:56 am

    craw, is this necessary?

  21. mick March 25th, 2012 at 10:57 am

    randy has seen the error of his ways and wants to move on, isn’t that obvious?

  22. randy l. March 25th, 2012 at 10:57 am

    “it’s called humility. also called facing reality. nova has the self confidence to stare an opportunity in the eye and make the most of it. he realizes his time will come.”

    what i love with nova is that he takes nothing for granted and that he’ll have to compete always for a spot.

    he won’t blink if they send him down or is they give him the spot.

    he just does his thing.

  23. Crawdaddy March 25th, 2012 at 10:57 am

    “craw, is this necessary?”

    Ask yourself that question.

  24. mick March 25th, 2012 at 10:59 am

    Ask yourself that question.
    ==================
    say what you mean. do you have a problem with me too?

  25. Crawdaddy March 25th, 2012 at 11:00 am

    “Ibanez”

    If Maxwell batted lefty then I might agree with you.

  26. mick March 25th, 2012 at 11:01 am

    Ibanez

    ———————————————————–

    I think people are overplaying how much he’ll play in the OF.

    If they were looking for that my guess is they would have gone with someone else.

    If they sub any OF much it probably will be Gardner against leftys.

  28. Crawdaddy March 25th, 2012 at 11:01 am

    “say what you mean. do you have a problem with me too?”

    No, as long as you don’t have a problem with me.

    he is a smart cookie with a lot of poise and moxie, 2 things underestimated in a good pitchers makeup.

    its always sunny on the lohud! :)

  33. Bret The Hitman March 25th, 2012 at 11:04 am

    Melky will be pricey but not as expensive as Swisher. Nick is a better overall hitter but for this lineup I think Melky profiles better because he’s a contact guy. The playoff lineup needs more multidimensional hitters.

  34. Crawdaddy March 25th, 2012 at 11:05 am

    Actually, I made my point and prefer to talk baseball.

  35. mick March 25th, 2012 at 11:06 am

    swisher is saying he’s not sure when he’ll be ready.
    at this point , maxwell is your starting RF.

  36. Ys Guy March 25th, 2012 at 11:06 am

    Hey Conan, your sn is incorrect it should be Conan the Grammarian. All caps in incorrect, therefore every comment you post contains incorrect spelling.

  37. Crawdaddy March 25th, 2012 at 11:07 am

    I could see Swisher being on the 15 day DL if he said that today.

  38. Rich in NJ March 25th, 2012 at 11:08 am

    Here’s my thinking: if defense matters at all, and Ibanez is going to be here, he should throw away his glove (he is terrible defensively at 40), and handednes should not prevent Nunez or Maxwell from playing the OF any time one of the top four OF aren’t.

  39. mick March 25th, 2012 at 11:09 am

    swisher served his purpose, i won’t miss his bleacher creature schtick and neither will jeter.

  40. mick March 25th, 2012 at 11:09 am

    I read the Phillies are interested in Pena.

  41. randy l. March 25th, 2012 at 11:11 am

    “Also, ragging on you is more to do with calling your hypocrisy out as this blog’s biggest instigator.”

    crawdaddy,

    i took care of trisha calling me a liar by telling her to go to the pawtucket/durham game that will be in her town in a few weeks. there’ll be a pitching coach who is very accessible to fans in that setting.
    reality is reality. transparency is a good thing.

    the only thing we have to be careful on the blog is if a psycho gets a fixation on here and goes on some sick stalking fixation that causes tat person to go after someone in real life. i’m giving you the credit that’s not who you are. i’m assuming i just rub you the wrong way. to me that’s no big deal.
    who cares?

    i grew up at a time in sports when we didn’t make friends with the other team. you and i are clearly opponents. we are on different teams. but so what?

    i have no intention of trying to insult you off the blog and if that’s what you’re trying to do with me , you have zero chance. so why bother?

    i will say that we should try to act as civilly as possible with each other because there have been some real psychos on this blog who drove a whole lot of good posters off the blog for good.

    sj44 told me several months ago in an email that it was dangerous for me to continue being open with info on the blog. some stuff had happened i think with doreen and others that involved the police.

    we don’t really want to make the kind of volatile atmosphere that attracts dangerous people now do we?

    so i’m saying , be on the opposing team, but play by the rules .

    i see no problem with us not liking each other. as a matter of fact legitimate differences of opinions is what makes the blog work.

  42. mick March 25th, 2012 at 11:11 am

    maxwell earned a spot and so has freddy.
    i see them both with starting jobs.

  43. Crawdaddy March 25th, 2012 at 11:11 am

    Left-handed power matters too.

  44. Crawdaddy March 25th, 2012 at 11:12 am

    Forget about it, I’m talking baseball now.

  45. Rich in NJ March 25th, 2012 at 11:12 am

    He is the DH because I’d that, for now.

  46. Rich in NJ March 25th, 2012 at 11:13 am

    Of that

  47. Crawdaddy March 25th, 2012 at 11:13 am

    What????

  48. mick March 25th, 2012 at 11:14 am

    randy…one question, if you don’t mind.

    a few weeks ago when you went nuts trying to bring your point about Pineda home,
    it seemed out of character.
    were you losing control or hoping Cashman read your posts and took action?

  49. Bret The Hitman March 25th, 2012 at 11:14 am

    I miss Doreen. She was great conversation and she understands the game. She was also humble about the things she didn’t understand. And she was gorgeous not just for an older woman but gorgeous period.

  50. Crawdaddy March 25th, 2012 at 11:15 am

    Rich,

    Okay, gotcha! Yeah, I have to admit, I rather not see him play the outfield either. I already had enough of him falling down out there.

  51. mick March 25th, 2012 at 11:16 am

    were you losing control or hoping Cashman read your posts and took action?”

    mick-

    i think i was just a little ahead of the curve. if you have been reading lately, quite a few posters are pondering the merits of sending pineda to triple a.

    i was just saying it at a time when no one else was. montero hasn’t gone away. he’s not going to.

    i tend to fight to the death on issues i believe in.

    i think it’s obvious now that the montero/pineda trade was a whopper that’s going to bewth us for a long time.

    i would love seeing an opening day lineup that had sabathia pitching with montero dhing with kuroda, nova, hughes, and garcia following up a starters. with pettitte in the wings.

    montero is gone for good, but the guy who made the trade is still with the yankees. do we want a gm who makes good decisions or one who makes bad ones?

    the gm has t be accountable for trades like this one. we can’t know if the yankees have a good g or not without following the two guys in the trade.

    we watch monetro and pineda to know about the guy making decisions. it’s a looking forward thing and not a backward thing.

  65. mick March 25th, 2012 at 11:29 am

    It’s good to hear Joba will be back in July, just stay away from the tramps, err trampolines, well them too…

  66. mick March 25th, 2012 at 11:33 am

    randy

    Do you really think Cashman has final say?
    I don’t. He has been overruled in the past.
    I think these major trades are made by consensus oponion.
    Many have been on board saying this deal was a no brainer. More yea than nay.

    My question is: Did you go overboard to make a point few were ready to hear and keep hammering it home for that reason?

    *******

    I know it’s silly, right? We should be allowed to describe a woman as attractive or gorgeous without objection or accusation.

    Sexism is a whole different animal.

    Like when I described Kim Jones as horny looking.

    THAT was sexist.

    So there, I just gave you guys cover to compliment Doreen.

  69. Bret The Hitman March 25th, 2012 at 11:37 am

  71. Bret The Hitman March 25th, 2012 at 11:39 am

    Mick,

    It means she looks easy.

  72. Bret The Hitman March 25th, 2012 at 11:40 am

    Or to use a retro phrase.

    She looks like a floozy.

  73. mick March 25th, 2012 at 11:41 am

    Kim is gone. Meredith has taken her place.

  74. stuckey March 25th, 2012 at 11:41 am

    “pineda woud be ace up my sleeve at triple a while he was mastering a plus change up.”

    Randy, I still don’t understand the back-end of your proposal.

    Serious question – if they criteria of Pineda having a major league-plus CU, and as you’re repeatedly stated the ONLY test of that is getting elite ML hitter with it in regular season games under pressure situation, how does the NYY organization judged Pineda to have mastered the pitch in AAA, when he’ll never be in any situation that approximates that?

    Is it an arbitrary period of time that he gets recalled no matter what?

    Is is some visual evaluation from Yankees AAA coaches that it is better than before?

    Please fill in the blank how the Yankees will know Pineda’s CU is ready to be thrown to Agon with the bases-loaded with 2 outs in the 6th in June?

  75. Bret The Hitman March 25th, 2012 at 11:42 am

    Yes and Meredith does not have those flaring nostrils like an Ox in heat.

    It’s disappointing.

  76. randy l. March 25th, 2012 at 11:45 am

    “Do you really think Cashman has final say?”

    mick -

    i think cashman really has control of this franchise. i think he has too many people working for him that kiss up to him. i don’t think there is much real debate that goes against brian.i think it’s understood that it would be a disloyal act signifying that person wasn’t on the same page if someone told brian he was full of crap on an issue.

    “My question is: Did you go overboard to make a point few were ready to hear and keep hammering it home for that reason?”

    i went overboard on it because it was me against the blog pretty much and i was fighting back. i will admit i don’t always fight fair when i’m attacked. but basically i’m a counter puncher.

    i haven’t changed my beliefs about the montero /pineda trade. the blog has eveolved as more info hs come into it.

    pineda is not the slam dunk ace or #2 that people thought he’d be. he still can be an ace though.
    i’ll be the first to admit that, but he needs a plus change to do that.

    the velocity question ironically worked in my favor because it’s made people realize pineda is not a fore sure bet, but it’s ironic because i don’t think the velocity things is an issue at all.

    i have a question for you. hasn’t al the debating and arguing and fighting o the blog brought out a much better understanding of pineda and other yankee pitchers he’s competing with ?

    to me it’s an extremely interesting process. i learn as i go on it. why take part in this blog thing if we’re not learning something from the effort.

    My question is: Did you go overboard to make a point few were ready to hear and keep hammering it home for that reason?

  77. mick March 25th, 2012 at 11:46 am

    It’s a double edge sword with Pineda.
    If he is fragile and you send him down, will he react like Nova and come back stronger?
    Maybe they sensed that with Nova. They also knew Nova better, he having been in their system.
    Who is the judge on this? Rothschild, Girardi…they should know him better than Cashman.
    I doubt they throw him to the wolves, it could backfire if he is tempermental.
    Nova is a proven commodity and could be sent down knowing he could come back even stronger.

  78. m March 25th, 2012 at 11:46 am

    What’s happened in the last two weeks?

    Andy returned. That’s why people are open to Pineda going to AAA. And if Nova hadn’t found his control, they would have been open to him going to AAA, too.

    It’s a numbers game. Pineda, Nova, Hughes are all ready to pitch in the majors. If and when Andy is ready, then they’ll see who’s doing what and go from there.

  79. mick March 25th, 2012 at 11:48 am

    I don’t think Garza is a #2 pitcher (I’m replying to an earlier post from Blake) at all in the AL East; he was a mid 4 ERA’s type. If Phil becomes a #2 types starter, then if the Yankees trade him because of budgetary concerns, they become no different than the A’s. There is no guarantee that any of their young pitchers will be successful at all, nevermind to the leve of a #2 starter. If they really thnk he’s turned a corner, perhaps they can lock Phil up relatively cheaply. If they prefer to wait, then all I can do is hope they do not become the A’s

    stuckey-

    the convoluted way you phase things makes me skim your posts, but i think you’re asking me about pineda having to prove he has a plus change by being tested against mlb players.

    of course.

    but it’s a two part process.

    the first part of the process is learning mechanically how to throw a plus change up.

    right now he doesn’t know how to do it.

    he couldn’t go out to a mound all by himself and throw a plus change up.

    he doesn’t have the skill.

    to me it’s a no brainer that when i want to work on something i go to the practice field or the driving range and then when i have it down take it to the course .

    i don’t decide to work on a new swing thought when i’m trying to shoot a low score with money on the line.

    Nova is a proven commodity and could be sent down knowing he could come back even stronger.
    =========================
    Again, Freddy at the 5 to start the season affords whomever they send down more opportunities to start and get the work in.
    The # 5 here will get sporadic starts, maybe 2 or 3.

    sorry mick

    that was left over at the bottom of my post.

    i don’t proof read when i send in posts. takes too long.

    i have a question for you. hasn’t al the debating and arguing and fighting o the blog brought out a much better understanding of pineda and other yankee pitchers he’s competing with ?
    ======================================================
    can I answer your question with a question?
    Don’t you think this all would have come out anyway?
    As you said, it did, based on his velo issues.
    Were you trying to purposely be a blog-leader and bring us into the future as you knew what it would be?
    If you are this smart why aren’t you in the bigs imparting this knowledge?
    (not meant facetiously)

    “Were you trying to purposely be a blog-leader and bring us into the future as you knew what it would be?”

    mick -

    i don’t believe in such a thing as a blog leader.

    i think the debating process is a competition that separates the good ideas from the bad ones, but the process takes time.

    the montero/pineda debate will play out over the short term and long term. baseball fans may be bringing it up 50 years from now. it has the potential to be that kind of trade.

    it’s like anything historical, say a presidency, you can’t judge it till years later.
    too many variables. even the campos-noesi issue comes into play.

  91. randy l. March 25th, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    i agree about campos/noesi.

    the real point now is does cashman have a plan behind what he did with the pineda/montero trade that he’s going to continue using.

    i think he does.

    i think it’s a simplistic ” pitching wins championships”.

    i think it’s a simplistic ” pitching wins championships”.
    ===============================
    seems like a good starting point.

    i remember many times hearing yankee hitters in post game say when the pitching comes around we will be fine. every team has hitters, not every team has a good staff. they are harder to find and are paid more for it.
