Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Apr 04, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

David Phelps and Clay Rapada have been told theyre on the team as long as nothing surprising happens between now and 5 p.m.

Brian Cashman said he always waits until the last moment to actually set his roster, but players have been told what to expect.

Rapada said hes waiting until 5 oclock to host his press conference.

Boone Logan said he expects his back to be fine by Opening Day. An MRI was negative and hell be on the roster for now. If the Yankees need to DL him in two days, they will.

    Giants To Trade Chris Stewart

    2:13pm: Shea hears that Stewart is being traded to the Yankees

    Again my point was not on Logan it was on the LOOGY, but you are moving things around unfairly. You said the league OPS was .700 and then .670 now you chose the lower one. How about this. What was the AL against a lefty for 10 and 11? I would expect that Logan was at least league average and slightly better which is about right? Now let’s see if I am right or wrong.

    I’m not moving anything around Genius Maker you’re just not reading them right, I posted the numbers. The MLB average for lefties against in 2010 and 2011 was .660 combined. It was .700 in 2009. The AL numbers were pretty much the same Logan was good in 2010 and bad in 2011.

    Logan 2011 vs lefties: .260 .328 .462 .789 AL LHP vs lefties 2011: .246 .311 .364 .675
    Logan 2010 vs lefties: .190 .286 .215 .501 AL LHP vs lefties 2010: .243 .309 .358 .667

    JF and GM are wasting way too much brain power on Boone Logan :)

    Pineda was bored before he even began.

  7. Jerkface April 4th, 2012 at 3:29 pm

    No kidding, Blake, but like Heyman I never turn down a conversation. Sushi ain’t on me though.

  8. GreenBeret7 April 4th, 2012 at 3:29 pm

    I’d guess the player going would be Maxwell.

    @BryanHoch
    Yankees trade George Kontos to Giants for catcher Chris Stewart. Cervelli sent to Triple-A.

    Interesting? I guess Kontos was mortified that he had been traded to San Fran. Not exactly the worst place to be, but if he is ticketed for the PCL instead of the major league team then I can understand his mortification.

    PCL is death to pitchers.

    I don’t even know who Chris Stewart is sadly….should I be excite?

  11. Jerkface April 4th, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    No. Backup. No bat. Probably some glove. Cant even hit in the PCL.

  12. Jerkface April 4th, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    Probably throw out more runners than Cervo.

  13. blake April 4th, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    Oh nevermind….I know who he is….didn’t register….I guess he’s better than Cervelli.

  14. blake April 4th, 2012 at 3:34 pm

    Why wouldn’t they want to just keep Cervelli since he at least knows the staff?

  15. RayVT April 4th, 2012 at 3:35 pm

    Wow! Cervelli to AAA.

    I don’t know about you, but his career .200 avg and .592 OPS is bound to make the manager giddy.

    He hit a 2-run homer today. Obviously, he doesn’t take the catching part of his job seriously enough. :mrgreen:

    “PCL is death to pitchers.”

    ~

    Indeed.

    Maybe “the big three” will skip Tacoma and go directly to The Safe (when the time comes)
    for now, look out Southern League!
