    There he goes again…thinking outside of the box.

    GB – you’re asking for intellectual consistency on this site? Are you kidding?

  3. jacksquat April 7th, 2012 at 4:12 pm

    It’s easy, statistics can be misused, especially when you don’t look at all the statistics, or consider the size of the sample.

  4. GreenBeret7 April 7th, 2012 at 4:13 pm

    I know, Joe. What was I thinking of?

    I said last night I wasn’t crazy about the move, but, I hadn’t looked at Pena’s lack of success against Sabathia. Rodriguez had some pretty decent success and Pena was something like 4-35 and 17-18 strikeouts. Do you go on guts or by the book?

  5. m April 7th, 2012 at 4:13 pm

    Gardner better replace Jones after he hits a grand slam. :mad:

    keithlaw ? @keithlaw

    Jim Tracy sees nothing wrong here “@ryanvooris: Chad Durbin and Livan used in a 1 run game. Is there a worse manager than Fredi Gonzalez?”

    ————————————————————————————————————————-

    Yeah, there is, “KLAW”. Those that think they know everything and those that think they’re better managers while sitting on their couches, shoveling pizza down their throats.

    Time to go hunt and gather. Later.

    Any word on Maxwell getting claimed or somehow getting thru waivers to Yanks AAA?

  14. hardwired7 April 7th, 2012 at 4:30 pm

    3 1/2 hrs until game time, and Joe Maddon is already on his way out to the mound to make a pitching change.

  15. randy l. April 7th, 2012 at 4:32 pm

    maine yankee-

    i have no problem with giradi playing a hunch.

    if sabathia had truck out pena, girardi woud have looked like a genius, but everyone knows it’s hard to see balls and strikes from the dugout.

    the guy who can tell what sabathia had was the catcher. managers will often ask them on the way out there to the mound.

    it’s of course against the rules to have a tv in the dugout , but people watching tv at home often see things you can’t see from the dugout.personally i think they should let tv’s in there.

  16. GreenBeret7 April 7th, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    Ray, no word yet on Maxwell. I think NY has another 8 days to pull him back and keep him or let him go on waivers. Hasn’t been claimed, yet. Not sure the Mets would take another chance on him or not.

  17. Rice Pudding Flavoured Relief Pitcher April 7th, 2012 at 4:41 pm

    I’m starting to wonder if there’s ever been a pitching prospect (t.i.n.s.t.a.a.p.p) who’s gained velocity but lost command in his fastball whilst gaining command of his other pitches.

    What’s been happening with Banuelos over the past season or two has been baffling.

  18. austinmac April 7th, 2012 at 4:41 pm

    I’m watching the Banuelos game. He is behind every hitter and they are hitting line drive after line drive with five hits in 1 1/3 innings.

  19. blake April 7th, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    I like the lineup…..but is Gardner really going to be a platoon player?

  20. SoS April 7th, 2012 at 4:44 pm

    Fellas. I will take the blame for yesterdays loss. I was locked in on gameday till the 8th inning then had to run some errands. I checked my phone for the score and it showed 7-6 final. First word out of my mouth was F*&^*! Then after the sick feeling left my stomach I realized that we
    have 161 more games to win the division and go get whats rightfully ours. #28. I will have to
    remind myself after every loss that its a marathon not a sprint. Hopefully we go 161-1, because thats easier said than done.

    One more thing. Chicks dig the longball while men dig speed. We need to crank up our radar guns a couple notched when our Yankees take the mound. There is nothing like feeling you can put a hole through a bat.

    GO YANKEES!!

    PS. I predicted 117 wins for the regular season. If Im not mistaken the year we won 114, we started out 1-3. Maybe this is a good omen.

  22. randy l. April 7th, 2012 at 4:49 pm

    i hadn’t even looked at the line up.

    i don’t like dhing jeter and sitting gardner.

    of course girardi may know something about jeter with a tweaked something other.

    ___________________________________
    It’s troubling. I’m not watching the game live but I’d hate to assume that something isn’t clicking either with his catcher or his command/control.

  24. blake April 7th, 2012 at 4:52 pm

    Cervy has allowed a stolen base and grounded into a DP….hopefully Manny will settle down.

  25. m April 7th, 2012 at 4:53 pm

    randy l,

    Girardi said that he would give Jeter and Arod half days and okay Nunez against LHP.

    Hate that Gardner is sitting. Hopefully it’s not like this for very long.

  26. SoS April 7th, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    i thought you thought pizza was good for anyone at anytime.

    =======

    Randy,
    You forgot the key ingredient to GB’s perfect pizza recipe. BEER. Have to wash it down with
    beer. No beer, no pizza. Its as important as
    1. Peanut butter + Jelley
    2. Burger + fries
    3. Peanut M n M’s
    4. Pizza + anchovies
    5. Chocolate chip + cookies
    6. Bread + garlic parmesan
    7. Chocolate + raisens
    8. Smirnoff ice + doritos chips
    9. Ice Cream + Brownies
    10 Speghetti + Meat sauce

    Did I miss any?

  27. blake April 7th, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    Miggy took Bucket deep…..2-0 Tiggers.

  28. SoS April 7th, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    I’m watching the Banuelos game. He is behind every hitter and they are hitting line drive after line drive with five hits in 1 1/3 innings.

    ========

    Time to trade Phelps for Nieves and demote “Eyes” to AA.

  29. SoS April 7th, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    Pujols batting avg. is .000 for the season. Wonder if hes ever going to get a hit this year?

  30. Rice Pudding Flavoured Relief Pitcher April 7th, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    Banuelos is rapidly moving from untouchable to a extra piece throw in a trade.

    some people can handle pizza and some can’t. I can. It makes others stupid and fat.

  32. austinmac April 7th, 2012 at 5:03 pm

    Banuelos is behind EVERY hitter. Now, 11 hits with no outs in the third. I think I will find other activities.

  33. GreenBeret7 April 7th, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    SoS,

    You’re exactly correct. The beer flushes that fat and stupid out of the system.

  34. SoS April 7th, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    Prospects are like a box of Pizza. You never know what your gonna get.

  35. mick April 7th, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    andruw jones is an important piece to the Yankee Dynasty.
    Cheap enough from a garage sale Cash attended to stunt the development of Gardner who will be gone as soon as they have to pay him.
    jeter not active in the field is something girardi is stuck on. why it has to be the 2nd game of the season is beyond me.
    its obvious the key to getting rid of Montero is Nunez and his ab’s against leftys.
    one thing about joe, he will do it his way. he must have security.

  36. SoS April 7th, 2012 at 5:07 pm

    I can feel myself losing brain cells eating Pizza while washing it down with smirnoff ice. Time to man up and drink a mans/dogs drink. Time to get over that childhood hangover.

  37. luis April 7th, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    Hello everyone,

    Two things:

    1) I hope Gardner is not used on a platoon basis. But I like that Nunez is getting playing time.
    2) Girardi shouldn’t have walked Rodriguez and load the bases with CC having command issues. But that was hardly the reason we lost the game. Leaving a lot of people on base was.

    I always thought that GB7 loved pizza and beer, especially since everything that was left ended up on killer stomach. ;)

  38. GreenBeret7 April 7th, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    Not sure, but, I’ll probably wait until his next start before trading Banuelos.

  39. Pat M. April 7th, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    Last night at The Dodger /Padres a long time Pads fan going back to the days Of Dave Winfield, Ozzie Smith ask recognized my faded NY accent and asked me if I was Yankee or Met fan……When I explained to her that The Yanks are my team, she looked at me and took a long pause and said to me…….It must be nice being a Yankee Fan…..I looked at her and couldn’t help but noticed her envy and pain and told, ” Yes it is, but explained that too many fans get lost in the club’s success……Petco is a great ballpark and the warehouse seats ( Metal Supply Building )are incredible…..

    You have to strike while the irons hot!! If he comes out and has a good outing then we’re back
    to playing the 1 and a million dumb and dumber game. ” So you say theres a chance!”.

  42. mick April 7th, 2012 at 5:14 pm

    Now that Grandy can’t hit leftys again why hit him 6th?
    Let Jones hit behind Tex. Grandy 7th.
    It’s just inconsistent.

  43. ET April 7th, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    JackCurryYES
    As good as Granderson was vs LHs last yr, Price kills lefties. Gotta think #s vs Price r y Girardi switched Grandy (6-31) & Swisher (10-22)

    Jeter is DH’ing in 2d game so Girardi is serious about “resting” his SS and A-Rod this year and playing Nunez. Nunez should get 350 at bats

  44. SoS April 7th, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    GB,
    Are the little rugrats coming over for Easter? I just realized its been so long that theyre no longer rugrats. They upgraded to Rascals. Damn GB, I started posting on this blog when you were old and im catching up to you with all this grey hair thats popped into my head in the past 5 years since.

  45. luis April 7th, 2012 at 5:20 pm

    SoS,

    You might be getting old, but GB was roaming the earth already when the dinosaurs were still around. I wasn’t to far behind though.

  46. GreenBeret7 April 7th, 2012 at 5:20 pm

    SoS, they’ll be here tomorrow helping “Killer” look for the eggs. He’s busy right now, sniffing out the marshmallow chicks, jelly beans and chocolate rabbits. By the end of tomorrow, there will be a bunch of sick kids and a sick dog. They’ll feed him everything and anything.

  47. Joe from Long Island April 7th, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    Pat M I’ve been to Petco, and the warehouse seats are great.

  48. austinmac April 7th, 2012 at 5:23 pm

    GB,

    Of course, no evaluations can be made based on one start, but Banuelos still is significantly short on command. Can he turn it around? No doubt as I hoped for it every inning. Until he improved his command a great deal, he isn’t ready to help.

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

    Sorry to cut in. Everyone is entitled to have a bad day. In ST he showed very good command on all of his three pitches. H e will be fine.

    Have you seen the movie 12 monkeys? Where there was a war picture of Bruce Willis 50 years in the past that shows no aging from now? Well thats GB. The man is old but he hasnt aged in the past 50 years.

  51. GreenBeret7 April 7th, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    Mac,

    That was in response to the wizard that was talking about trading Banuelos in a package for anything breathing.

    Just got through dying Easter eggs for the guests. My youngest rug rat just turned 28. Miss’em, but they’ve got rug rats of their own. Happy Easter!

  55. austinmac April 7th, 2012 at 5:31 pm

    Luis,

    Your thoughts are welcome. I read today, I believe written by Marchard, he went down early this spring because of command issues.

    And yes, they all have bad days. Let’s hope the next start is a good one.

  56. SoS April 7th, 2012 at 5:31 pm

    They’ll feed him everything and anything.

    ========

    GB,
    Your ok as long as Killer doesnt feel like returning the favor and feels the need to share his beer and pizza. What are they now about 7 years old? My 8 year old just figured out 2 weeks ago that there was no such thing as an easter bunny. I asked him why he thought that way and his response was what is the need to sell plastic eggs in stores if theres an easter bunny? I couldnt argue with that. He must be on the Pizza/beer diet.

    Are all the camera shots as bad as today’s? The camera seemed so faraway. It made me long for the 1960 TV coverage.

  59. GreenBeret7 April 7th, 2012 at 5:36 pm

    SoS,

    A couple of the kids are 6 and 7, but, the twins are 3 years old and a couple of others are under a year. They’re still fun. “Killer” loves kids, especially if they feed him. He’s like a sheepdog when the kids are outside. He rounds them up and won’t let them near the road. The perfect baby sitter.

  60. GreenBeret7 April 7th, 2012 at 5:37 pm

    Mac, a few of them are. Syracuse is one that only has the one camera behind the plate.

  61. blake April 7th, 2012 at 5:37 pm

    Banuelos is still probably the youngest pitcher in the international league and its the first start of the season…..let’s wait until at least his second one before panic sets in.

  62. SoS April 7th, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    The perfect baby sitter.

    Now all you have to teach killer is to clean them up before they put their paws on your walls and furniture and he would be the stepford dog.

    Cabrera and Fielder are 2 monsters. Power and more power.

  64. GreenBeret7 April 7th, 2012 at 5:42 pm

    Looks like the Great Dan Haren didn’t last very long againt the powerhous Royals. Allowed two homer and 5 runs in 5 innings. and the Angels are scoreless.

    Yes, SoS. The dreaded “side injury”

    The obliques strike again.

  73. luis April 7th, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    Austinmac,

    Thanks, I haven’t read anything on that regard. I was just voicing my opinion of what I saw in ST. But if he was sent down early for that, then that is another matter. I hope that he figures it out.

  74. SoS April 7th, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    For as many experts that are predicting Angels winning the World Series. Not sure how theyre going to do that. The lineup does not strike much fear besides Kendrick Pujols and Morales.

  75. SoS April 7th, 2012 at 5:57 pm

    Some compare Montero to Cabrera. I think thats a pretty high bar set. The man can flat out rake. Who is a more natural/lethal hitter from the right side? Cabrera or Manny in his prime?

  76. m April 7th, 2012 at 5:58 pm

    Oi. This Bobby Petrino story gets worse and worse by the day.

  77. Tar April 7th, 2012 at 5:58 pm

    For those watching why is Fister out?

  78. muwarriorsfan April 7th, 2012 at 5:59 pm

    Sure glad the Yanks didn’t sign an impact player like Fielder. Don’t want anyone actually producing…

    Detroit is scary good and will run away with the AL Central.

  79. Pat M. April 7th, 2012 at 6:03 pm

    SoS……Manny in my opinion

  80. CompassRosy April 7th, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    Albert finally gets his first Halo hit – a double – but, is eventually thrown out at the plate.

    5-0 Royals, mid 7

    Vent = 208
    Game Day = 122

    ***

    So far, in Anaheim and in Detroit, it’s a good baseball day, respectively, for M’s and Yanks fans ;-)

  81. I Collect Brett Gardner Cards April 7th, 2012 at 6:06 pm

    wow. mets 2 straight against the braves. 90 wins?

  82. austinmac April 7th, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    It looked like Fister left with pain in his side.

    It was home run derby off Beckett. Gotta love it. Detroit is a bit scary.

  83. CompassRosy April 7th, 2012 at 6:13 pm

    too bad, so sad, Kendrys.

  84. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 7th, 2012 at 6:13 pm

    :D

    I wonder how many people would downgrade their Sux prediction, given the chance!

    HARDEE HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR!!!!

    Yeah, they’re dangerous. About as dangerous as a grenade that’s been detonated.

    Beckett looked great.

  85. GreenBeret7 April 7th, 2012 at 6:14 pm

    Here’s a 3 minute clip of the Trenton homers. It’s great to see somebody has gotten johnson to move his hands. The used to sit almost on his left hip. It was like watching mickey Tettleton swinging from the left side. watch his first homer.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....e=youtu.be

  86. SoS April 7th, 2012 at 6:14 pm

    Pat M,
    Hows it going So Cal neighbor. I would have to go with Manny as well. But I think if they can keep Cabrera off the field and healthy, he might be knocking on that 500 homeruns club door in a few years. Pure hitter. The problem is he looks like a pure eater as well. 6 second abs and burning his fielding glove can go a long ways.

  87. CompassRosy April 7th, 2012 at 6:14 pm

    but then Bobby get him in anyway…

  88. J. Alfred Prufrock April 7th, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    We’re trading Manny now??

    Another “B” bites the dust,, eh? And Betances ends up in relief? Isn’t that what I keep reading in this space??

    How old’s Manny B again? Oh, right, 21. He’s a has-been quadruple A guy. Get rid of him before anybody notices.

    Hey, Dellin only topped out at 95 yesterday, 3X, get rid of him, too.

    I missed most of yesterday’s Yankee game, because the Panera we wound up in had really slow wifi. Listened to John and Suzie instead, and ate crummy sandwiches. Couldn’t find the place (FYI: if you’re traveling to Allentown, Pa., there IS NO East Livingston Road. That’s just a GoogleMap ruse to lead Yankee fans invading Phillies’ territory astray).

    Cervelli has exacted his revenge for being sent down by wearing No. 3. He didn’t adversely affect Betances, who was workman like for the most part – he doesn’t altogether have his fastball yet but the curve was ridiculous, even though he was blowing on his hands every five minutes and the wind was a howlin’. He gave up more LD’s than usual, though, and as usual, owned Dom Brown, getting him to chase 95 outside for a K on three pitches in his first AB, and a dirty curve on his second. The good news is he was ahead of the hitters most of the night, pitched inside, and got clueless swings on his curve per usual. I looked sort of like a 2010 start but stuff-wise he isn’t there yet, whether due to the cold, it being early, or maybe even trying to simplify more to get on the right track control wise, I couldn’t say.

    Of the four legit line drives off him, one was off a 89 mph cutter that didn’t cut against a LHB, and you don’t see that from him often. He worked quickly, though, walked just one, and for the most part, when he missed, he missed down. Laird made a couple of bad (high throws), so the Trenton-esque type infield snafus continue. One play, a slow chopper the SS came in on but couldn’t make the play (not the SS’ fault there), stuff like that. Typical Betances I’d say, with a couple mph missing.

    One thing I liked, though, as he was tiring in the fifth, I thought they were coming out to get him (runners on) and instead, they let him get past the fatigue barrier and stick it out, ending with a K off another beautiful curve. That was good to see. Last year, they would have taken him out, and that would have been not even because of tiring. I counted 78 or 79 pitches, overall, which I guess would be about right, since he went more than 3 innings in ST (went 2 twice, I believe, and the other was just one). Next time I see him (end of month, if he goes on regular rest and the off days don’t mess things up), he should be up to speed and back to throwing gas.

    So far, in Anaheim and in Detroit, it’s a good baseball day, respectively, for M’s and Yanks fans

    CompassRosy,
    Now if we can only down that with a Yankee blowout/homerun derby win. It would make a great be early Easter present.

    No matter how you color it, Banuelos was bad today. Everything up over the middle of the plate. Can’t blame the defense on that. It’s his first start in I don’t know how many starts since his last ST tune-up. He’s not going anywhere but up.

    Thanks J. Alfanboy Prufock. I for one appreciate the waxing.

    :D

    With the Easter preparation stuff, I have missed all the fun and games after yesterday’s loss. Listened to the end of the game in the car while in the lot of Coca Cola Park and that was my last Yankee-related act. I’d say the good news is that Alex looks ferocious. Going forward, that is MF huge.

    Tar – I think I may have been too generous in predicting the Sux to finish 4th!

    Tar,

    I stole every word of that from Patrick Teale at Pinstripes Plus, but please don’t tell on me, because I really really wannabe a scout when I grow up, whenever that is.

  95. SoS April 7th, 2012 at 6:25 pm

    Im hoping Banuelos ends up having a similiar road to the big leagues as Lester. Didnt Lester have control problems when he first came up? It took him a year or two to harness it and became and Ace of the staff. How hard was Manny throwing?

  96. SoS April 7th, 2012 at 6:28 pm

    9-0 Detroit. Maybe they should sandbag some runs for tomorrows sweep.

  97. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 7th, 2012 at 6:29 pm

    I don’t mind being alone in my reverie. MTU would be joining up if he were here!

    *****************

    A gym full of people and only one hooting and hollering and grinning anytime Beckett and the Sux screwed up. Nobody met my smiles as I looked all around for company. I was basically screaming everytime the ball left the park and laughed uproariously when Cabrera’s double was ruled a homer. So I had nothing but to let my smile fade to blank and turn back to my exercise machine, where I then smiled like a crazy person and high-fived my treadmill.

    What was Manny’s problem today?

    Just missing spots?

    I won’t be able to see the the archive until tomorrow night at the earliest.

    LMAO on Bosox. How soon does Bobby V. get the hook? Trisha? What’s the buzz in Blowsux Radio land?

  99. SoS April 7th, 2012 at 6:33 pm

    Good stuff Trish. Joy doesnt always need company. Hey Trish can you link me to the Yankees predictor and Sox one. Or just let me know if you got my predictions and what they sox one was? I remember the Yanks being at 117.

  100. SoS April 7th, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    10-0!! Tigers please give the batboy a chance to bat. Have a winning raffle fan or hell even Leiland for all I care. Just save some of those run tokens for tomorrow already!!

  101. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 7th, 2012 at 6:44 pm

    SoS, it looks like you didn’t give me a prediction for the Sux. If you did and I missed it, I will be happy to put it in.

  104. SoS April 7th, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    81 losses for the Baked beans Trish.

    Enjoy your Easter everyone!

  105. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 7th, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    And you enjoy yours too SoS!
