TV/Radio: YES/WCBS 880

Weather: 72 degrees, partly cloudy

Umpires: Gerry Davis HP, Greg Gibson 1B, Phil Cuzzi 2B, Vic Carapazza 3B

 

Pen pride: The Yankees’ bullpen ranks second in the AL and third in the majors in ERA at 2.03. The relievers’ combined ERA is 0.78 over the last six games.

Swisher drives them in: Nick Swisher begins play tied for the AL lead in RBI with 11, coming in nine games. It took him 22 games to get that many last season.

Flashbacks: Do you remember what happened on this day three years ago? The Yankees played their first regular-season game at the new Stadium. They fell 10-2 to Cleveland. Future Indian Johnny Damon had the first hit. Jorge Posada had the first homer.

Update, 7:14: Russell Martin shows off his arm again, getting Jamey Carroll stealing after an infield hit. Would you rather have had Jesus Montero behind the plate, or Martin?

Update, 7:17: Josh Willingham now has a 10-game hitting streak, RBI single, 1-0. No wild pitches yet for Garcia after that strange last outing.

Update, 7:22: This isn’t much better. Garcia is around the plate and getting hit. RBI single for Ryan Doumit, 2-0. Five hits allowed already.

Update, 7:27: Homer No. 3 for Jeter already, and homer No. 3 for Granderson, back to back, 2-2. Carl Pavano serving them up. First time the Yankees have had back-to-back homers to start the first since Sept. 23, 2005.

Update, 7:35: Slow-starting Teixeira continues to warm up, RBI single, 3-2.

Update, 7:45: 1-2-3 second for Garcia.

Update, 8:05: Garcia settling down nicely, 1-2-3, third.

Update, 8:18: Garcia mowing them down in his crafty way, 1-2-3 fourth. That’s 10 in a row.

Update, 8:24: Pavano, after the welcome-back boos and the three-run, four-hit first, has settled down as well. 1-2-3 fourth. He’s only allowed two singles since the first.

Update, 8:29: Double by Casilla with one out in the fifth, stopping Garcia’s streak at 11 batters set down in a row.

Update, 8:34: Garcia can’t close out the inning, two-out RBI single for Jamey Carroll, 3-3.

Update, 8:36: This is turning out to be a decidedly mixed outing for Garcia. RBI double for Joe Mauer, 4-3 Twins. Clay Rapada is a warming.

Update, 8:46: Garcia serves up a fastball to Morneau leading off the sixth, and it’s 5-3. Boone Logan warming.

Update, 8:50: Garcia is done after 5 2/3. Logan is in.

Update, 9:12: Good job by Pavano with first and second and one out in the sixth, getting Swisher fishing at a sinker and Ibanez to ground to second.

Update, 9:19: One out, man on first in the Twins’ seventh. Logan is out, Cory Wade is coming in.

Update, 9:27: Great running grab by Granderson near the fence in left-center to rob Morneau, save a run and end the seventh.

Update, 9:35: The Twins warmed up Brian Duensing in the Yankees’ seventh, but Pavano looked great, two strikeouts and a groundout.

Update, 9:41: Cory Wade is letting this one get away in the eighth, RBI double for Danny Valencia and RBI single for Clete Thomas, 7-3.

Update, 9:49: Duensing on for the eighth. Got to give credit to Pavano for bouncing back after a bad first, only three singles allowed in the next six innings, only one making it out of the infield.

Update, 10:14: Yankees lose, 7-3.

    this is a perfect opportunity to grab another win and a series the Yanks can win.

    3 out of 4 here guys…. roll into Boston and win that series… and so it goes

  2. luis April 16th, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    Go Yankees, Go freddy…We need some length tonight from you Chief!!

  3. Salliedogs7 April 16th, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    Go Garcia. Go Yanks.

  4. luis April 16th, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    luis April 16th, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    BD (Boston Dave) April 16th, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    this team should either sign develop or trade for a legitimate #2 starter because that provides a disproportionate advantage

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

    We already have that in Nova, Kuroda and Pettitte.

  5. luis April 16th, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    Good start

  6. luis April 16th, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    Great play from Cano, it’s pity that the throw didn’t get on time

  7. GreenBeret7 April 16th, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    Cody Johnson has hit another homer for trenton, this one just to the left of center. His 4th of the season. Mahoney also hit one.

  8. syd_cash April 16th, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    lets go Yankees :)

  9. JobaTipsHisCap April 16th, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    Will cc pitch tomorrow?

  10. luis April 16th, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    GB7,

    Is Charleston plying tonight as well? If they are i would appreciate some updates as well ;)

    Good throw from Martin

  11. UnKnown April 16th, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    Gerry Davis huh, CC is glad he is not on the mound. Flashbacks to his horrible zone in Detroit for Game 3.

  12. blake April 16th, 2012 at 7:15 pm

    That throw was a rocket.

  13. Benny Blanco April 16th, 2012 at 7:15 pm

    i’ll take it. If the ump says he’s out, he’s out. :)

  14. jacksquat April 16th, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Damn, Gardner has the butterfingers today.

  15. syd_cash April 16th, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    a rare miscue by Gardy

  16. JobaTipsHisCap April 16th, 2012 at 7:18 pm

    How many more opportunities will be Garcia given?

  17. GreenBeret7 April 16th, 2012 at 7:18 pm

    gardner has the butterfingers working on those two plays. He might have stopped the runner with a clean pick-up.

  18. JobaTipsHisCap April 16th, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    Ok, cc tomorrow. So he will pitch against sux on next sunday.

  19. luis April 16th, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    Until Pettitte or Pineda is ready. Most likely the former.

  20. syd_cash April 16th, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    offically not amused by Garcia this inning anymore. Just get this last out without giving up another run.

  21. UnKnown April 16th, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    Alright time to get out of the inning here Chief.

  22. JobaTipsHisCap April 16th, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    Ground out to end the inning

  23. JobaTipsHisCap April 16th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    Geez

  24. theREALkevin April 16th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    Paging Pettitte & Pineda. You guys are better than Hughes & Garcia. Please come back quick.

  25. syd_cash April 16th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    nothing like a high slow pitch for anyone to eat up

  26. muwarriorsfan April 16th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    OK, can’t use the “cold weather” excuse tonight.

    Freddy just stinks.

  27. LGY April 16th, 2012 at 7:23 pm

    Freddy and Hughes making the impending rotation decisions easy so far.

  28. Yankees_Fan April 16th, 2012 at 7:23 pm

    Batting Practice Garcia

  29. GreenBeret7 April 16th, 2012 at 7:23 pm

    Garcia getting whacked about so far. He should be better than this against Minnesota

  30. mick April 16th, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    BP Freddy.
    Give Phelps his next start.
    Knife accident.

  31. luis April 16th, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    It’s started well……At least he is out of the inning.

  32. mick April 16th, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    Freddy and Hughes making the impending rotation decisions easy so far.
    ========================
    “These thing s have a way of working themselves out.”

  33. UnKnown April 16th, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    Going to need to pound this pansy Pavano tonight.

  34. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 16th, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    Valentine apologized to Pukeface? I gotta read this one!

    Rays beat the Suxers 1-0. That must have been a great game. (Just read the score.) I assume it was David Price?

    I’m thankful that we’re facing the American Idle. I just put the game on and saw that Freddy gave up 2 runs, Rothschild talked to him, and he got an out. Hopefully Rothschild saw something and Freddy straightened it out.

    Going out in a few minutes. :(

    GO YANKEES!!!!!

  35. Salliedogs7 April 16th, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    Jeter!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. syd_cash April 16th, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    Wowza! I don’t think that Derek Jeter can be any hotter right now :D

  37. rm April 16th, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    wow he is hot

  38. RadioKev April 16th, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    Wow, Jeter is smoking hot right now

  39. luis April 16th, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    El Capitan!!!! A homer to a righty by the way ;)

  40. Benny Blanco April 16th, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    can you be hotter than derek?..DAMN!!!

  41. LGY April 16th, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    Nice! And against a righty too.

    Grandy!! Wow.

  42. rm April 16th, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    that was quick

  43. Salliedogs7 April 16th, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    Grandy man can!!!!!!!!!

  44. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 16th, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    And no sooner did I say it than Jeter got one of the runs back!

    GO YANKS!!!!

    Later y’all.

    AND ANOTHER HOMER!!!!!

    We’re winning this game kids!

  45. Benny Blanco April 16th, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    Belly to belly!!!!

  46. luis April 16th, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    Back to back to welcome Pavano the iddle man!!

  47. theREALkevin April 16th, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    What two run lead???

  48. syd_cash April 16th, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    Granderson says…I can do it too!

  49. GreenBeret7 April 16th, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    Jeter will end up making a run for 300 homers before he’s done.

  50. justinxdance27 April 16th, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    that was easy

  51. Carlo April 16th, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    Gonna take 8 runs to win tonight so this is a good start. If Freddie wants to rest, mike Harkey can throw bp instead.

  52. Pat M. April 16th, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    Welcome back to The Bronx Carl

  53. luis April 16th, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    Three hits, no outs so far. Cano is your turn to get out of the slump

  54. RadioKev April 16th, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    Not to get too into the announcing again – but it’s amazing that I prefer listening to Terry Francona than Aaron Boone.

  55. jacksquat April 16th, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    Pavano throwing slower than Garcia? Thought he was a 90-92 guy.

  56. charlestonchew April 16th, 2012 at 7:32 pm

    GreenBeret7 April 16th, 2012 at 7:29 pm
    Jeter will end up making a run for 300 homers before he’s done.

    ————

    I hope so. The built that short porch for him, after all.

  57. Salliedogs7 April 16th, 2012 at 7:35 pm

    Tex!!!!!!!!

  58. luis April 16th, 2012 at 7:36 pm

    Tex!! That was a good swing

  59. GreenBeret7 April 16th, 2012 at 7:36 pm

    Campos has a 1-2-3 first, and sanchez with an RBI single for Charleston

  60. rm April 16th, 2012 at 7:37 pm

    the Yankee sure do crush poor pitching

  61. Boston Jim April 16th, 2012 at 7:37 pm

    American “idle” in the house!!

  62. TheBigOut April 16th, 2012 at 7:37 pm

    i hate the new stadium. it’s an embarrassment to have some many empty seats each night.. and the crowd noise is horrible too.

  63. luis April 16th, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    Thanks GB, I knew i could count on you. What about Mason??

  64. GreenBeret7 April 16th, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Nik Turley has sort of a mixed games so far. 3 innings, 4 hits, 3 strikeouts, but, no walks or runs to tampa.

  65. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 16th, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Wow, it was big James Shields!

    Sux in last place.

    All is well.

    (luis, I will try to continue to bring them bad luck and the Ys good luck.)

    :)

  66. Bo knows April 16th, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    Poor Pavano struck Teix twice. Getting squeezed.

  67. BD (Boston Dave) April 16th, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    GB7

    keep the Campos updates coming!!

    or maybe just let us know if he actually gives up any hits :)

  68. Pat M. April 16th, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    RM……That’s what good teams do and are expected to do…….TheBigOut….Why don’t you go and buy one of those empty seats so you can make some noise there rather than here ???? Have you even been to Yankee Stadium ???

  69. GreenBeret7 April 16th, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    Mason is 0-2 so far. Bichette has a walk.

  70. luis April 16th, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    trisha – true pinstriped blue April 16th, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Aaron Boone is dreadful.. All former players on Espn are terrible actually

  72. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 16th, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    luis, I’ll never leave you(s).

    :D

    will be back in a short while.

  73. Salliedogs7 April 16th, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    Good inning.

  74. LGY April 16th, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    Nice inning from Chief

  75. GreenBeret7 April 16th, 2012 at 7:47 pm

    Betances through 2 innings 2 hits, 1 run, 0 walks, 2 strikeouts

  76. UnKnown April 16th, 2012 at 7:48 pm

    Jacksquat, Pavano lives in the mid 80′s now. Really has become a junkballer style guy

  77. GreenBeret7 April 16th, 2012 at 7:48 pm

    Campos, 2 innings, 1 hit, 0 runs, 0 walks, 1 strikeout

  78. BD (Boston Dave) April 16th, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    Campos is going to move fast if he keeps this up

  79. BD (Boston Dave) April 16th, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    It seems clear he’s already too good for that league

  80. BD (Boston Dave) April 16th, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    crud, Gardy hit that one better than he usually does – had a good sound

    but he hit it to the wrong part of the park

  81. Pat M. April 16th, 2012 at 7:52 pm

    GB……..Are you listening to the game, and if so what are they saying about Campos ???

  82. BD (Boston Dave) April 16th, 2012 at 7:52 pm

    Campos is silencing bats and this thread?

    zzzzzz

  83. blake April 16th, 2012 at 7:52 pm

    You look up mediocre Twins pitcher in the dictionary and you’ll see a picture of ole Carl….man he looks blah.

  84. luis April 16th, 2012 at 7:53 pm

    Infield hit!!

    GB,

    Is the game of Betances being televised?

  85. BD (Boston Dave) April 16th, 2012 at 7:53 pm

    Jete!!!!

    man there’s not much better than a hustling runner beating it out

  86. Salliedogs7 April 16th, 2012 at 7:53 pm

    Jeter showing speed.

  87. jacksquat April 16th, 2012 at 7:54 pm

    Jeter .395

  88. blake April 16th, 2012 at 7:54 pm

    Campos is off tonight….he’s already given up a hit.

  89. BD (Boston Dave) April 16th, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    luis,

    I believe GB has mIlb tv and can watch the games through that (the minor league complement to MLB.tv)

    but he can answer…. it’s pretty cheap if you are already an MLB.tv customer

  90. jacksquat April 16th, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    Pavano doesn’t have much, two balls well hit that inning turned into outs.

  91. luis April 16th, 2012 at 7:56 pm

    BD,

    I got it, that’s why i was asking…So i can see the game after the game ;)

  92. kd April 16th, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    campos pitching to sanchez… i could get used to that

    aa for campos by the end of the year?

    Actually, Pat

    i have the radio feed of the trenton game on. Getting ready to switch over to the Charleston feed. will give you whatever readings the put out.

    It will be my pleasure

    Blyleven on the Twins broadcast is making a call that Mauer is going to hit one out this AB

  99. blake April 16th, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    is that Campos’s cousin pitching against him?

  100. j9d April 16th, 2012 at 8:01 pm

    What are the fans chanting/booing?

  101. BD (Boston Dave) April 16th, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    the Chief begs to differ

  102. UnKnown April 16th, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    There goes that Bert.

    I see the Giants inked another one of there Starters. They are going to have a nice staff for a long time to come.

  103. Bronx Jeers April 16th, 2012 at 8:03 pm

    Aaron Boone sounds like a woman.

  104. blake April 16th, 2012 at 8:04 pm

  105. Nick in SF April 16th, 2012 at 8:04 pm

  106. Salliedogs7 April 16th, 2012 at 8:04 pm

    2 strong innings for Garcia.

  107. luis April 16th, 2012 at 8:07 pm

    Well hit from Aord

  108. TheBigOut April 16th, 2012 at 8:08 pm

  111. JobaTipsHisCap April 16th, 2012 at 8:11 pm

    That’s why Bobbie v is such an ahole.

  112. Stoneburner April 16th, 2012 at 8:14 pm

    So, Nik Turley continues to pitch his heart out – but no – oh no – the fan boys do not mention him one bit recently – they would rather throw a temper tantrum and have this disgusting display last Saturday night http://yankees.lhblogs.com/201...../#comments

    The fan boys would rather care about the happenings in a Mariners/A’s game – then what Nike Turley is up to tonight and this season – maybe it is because they missed the article on Pinestripes Plus or fan graphs – the fan boy favoritism elitism continues – they have their favorites – and if their favorites do not include someone – such as Turley – they ignore – what – just because he was the last pick in his draft.

    Oh fan boy elitist – what will you borrow from next and call it your own opinion. . . . .

  113. UnKnown April 16th, 2012 at 8:14 pm

    Gerry Davis is going to ruin Garcia’s groove here that he is in.

  114. luis April 16th, 2012 at 8:16 pm

    Good catch Grandy!

  115. JobaTipsHisCap April 16th, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    2er for 6 would be awesome

  116. luis April 16th, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    Attaboy Chief

  117. LGY April 16th, 2012 at 8:19 pm

    This is turning into a very nice outing from Chief

  118. kd April 16th, 2012 at 8:20 pm

    anyone have an idea of when pineda might make his first start?

    update on campos?

  119. mick April 16th, 2012 at 8:20 pm

    put the knives away

  120. Bret The Hitman April 16th, 2012 at 8:21 pm

    Pineda dropped 20 lbs according to Kurkijan.

  121. Carlo April 16th, 2012 at 8:21 pm

    The longer our development staff works with campos, the more pedestrian he will become.

  122. Carlo April 16th, 2012 at 8:23 pm

    I don’t buy that at all re Pineda. Impossible to lose 20 lbs legitimately in 5 weeks.

  123. Pat M. April 16th, 2012 at 8:25 pm

    I’m not sure if Raul dropped weight in his stick, but he sure seems to be getting through the zone better ever since the last week of March…….Maybe he’ll make it to the All Star break after all ……Right guys ????

  124. Betsy April 16th, 2012 at 8:25 pm

    Freddy is just a terrific pitcher. It ticks me off when people say he’s just a 5th starter. I think they sort of forgot how good he was last year.

  125. Betsy April 16th, 2012 at 8:27 pm

    Hi Pat M

    I stuck by Thames after his poor ST last year and I did the same with Ibanez. He’s apparently a great guy, so I’m very happy for him.

    The longer our development staff works with campos, the more pedestrian he will become.

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

    The key IMO is to let him get his innings down in the minors, like they did with Nova, Phelps et al Just leave him down there, he will be become a force.

  130. rm April 16th, 2012 at 8:30 pm

    Betsy, On this staff he is just a 5th (or 6th or 7th) starter. On most staffs he could be 3 or 4

  131. Bronx Jeers April 16th, 2012 at 8:30 pm

    Rope,

    I am not anointing him anything. I am just pointing out how good is to let the kids get their innings down in the minors. So far, Phelps has looked like he can help the ball club, not comparing him to Nova. Just the way they were brought up.

  134. Niblick April 16th, 2012 at 8:31 pm

  143. TheBigOut April 16th, 2012 at 8:37 pm

    HAH! Francona just said that most AL managers would have walked Mauer in that spot.

  144. Niblick April 16th, 2012 at 8:38 pm

  145. blake April 16th, 2012 at 8:40 pm

    Freddy hasn’t been great…..but if they lose this game it’ll only be because they stop hitting against crappy pavano…..they need to score some more runs.

  146. mick April 16th, 2012 at 8:40 pm

    knife accident for freddy
    get phelps ready

  147. sdjohn April 16th, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    Francona isn’t in the booth, it’s sutcliffe. Either way, I gotta think Freddy would have been better off going against willingham.

  169. luis April 16th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    Joe you are seeing these rockets all over the field no?

  171. Carlo April 16th, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    Garcia and Hughes seem to believe their best chance to stay in th rotation is to inject pineda with fat.

  172. Betsy April 16th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    RM, I don’t think so – this staff has question marks.

    Pat M, why do you think so? Andy had better come back on all cylinders.

  173. luis April 16th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    Bets,

    Don’t get me wrong, but junkballers usually don’t fair too well in the AL. Last year was an exception to the rule. I hope i am wrong, but in any case, Garcia’s days in pinstripes are numbered.

  174. sdjohn April 16th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    Offense needs to step up next inning.

  175. mick April 16th, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    Pettitte and phelps for freddy and hughes, in that order
    unless hughes continues to implode

  176. jacksquat April 16th, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    More a matter of command than velocity for Garcia.

  183. igotid88 April 16th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Pineda hasn’t even thrown a regular season for us and is already the better pitcher?

  184. luis April 16th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Bret,

    Phelps could have taken the 5th starter role. And it is too early to tell with Hughes.

  185. sunny615 April 16th, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Pineda… Hope you’re healing well.

  186. rm April 16th, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    Betsy, I think Garcia and Hughes are numbers 6 and 7 on this staff unless somebody gets hurt. It is possible Andy and Pineda will not be effective when they return but I expect them to be pretty good.

  187. sdjohn April 16th, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    A breaking ball to the 9 hitter 3-2 count? WTF?

  188. luis April 16th, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    Bets,

    And i am glad that you are :) The thing is who do you think it’s going to be bumped from the rotation when Andy is ready in three weeks?

  189. Jerkface April 16th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    Garcia is looking awfully pedestrian this year. Maybe last year was a fluke…?

    It would be very hard for him to reproduce the ERA he had last year, but he shouldn’t be terrible. He has legitimate skills.

  190. Betsy April 16th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    RM, well I don’t think Pineda is going to be here for awhile…….. I don’t think Garcia is really a #6 starter, but I agree that he and Phil are likely on the outs.

  191. blake April 16th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    Via Mark Carig, Brian Cashman confirmed that Michael Pineda threw a 26-pitch bullpen session earlier today and that everything was “all good.” I can only assume that means he didn’t have any sort of issue with the right shoulder tendinitis that currently has him on the DL. It was originally reported that Pineda would throw the bullpen session tomorrow, but I guess he felt good enough that they bumped him

    http://www.riveraveblues.com

  192. syd_cash April 16th, 2012 at 9:01 pm

  194. Don Vito A. Bellamo April 16th, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Garcia and Hughes will eventually be dropped out of the starting 5, unless there is an injury. The only question is…who gets bumped first?

  195. mick April 16th, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    if phil is on the outs then in effect he is hughesless

  199. rm April 16th, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    Betsy, If it was up to me I would keep Hughes in the rotation until Pineda is ready and send Garcia to the Pen. I would like to give Hughes every opportunity to have a future with the club. Garcia is only here this year.

  200. Betsy April 16th, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    Luis, I guess it’s too early, but my guess is Hughes. There was talk on WFAN today that perhaps the Giants would have interest in Soriano since Wilson is down ………..and if the Yankees could trade him there, they could slot Phil in the 7th inning role.

  201. JobaTipsHisCap April 16th, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    Garcia basically cane be written off

  204. ET April 16th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    Garcia will go for Andy

    Hopefully Pineda shows enough in the minors where he can replace Hughes.

  205. Betsy April 16th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    RM, Phil and Freddy have a few more starts until Andy returns……….I think it will come down purely to performance. Freddy doesn’t have a future here and I’m not sure Phil does either. The team needs to win, so I’m fine with just going with the guy at this point who’s pitching better. Either way, if Pineda comes back, they are both gone………from the rotation.

    Yes it worked out, NO its not the right thing to do. You either bring in Rapada (or send his butt down so u can have another man on bench) or walk morneau. That was foolish, no matter what the outcome

    great hockey game in Ottawa, Rangers just took the lead 1-0 midway through the 3rd period on a goal by Brian Boyle.

    The King has been at his best tonight, the Sens throwing shots at him from every direction.

  258. muwarriorsfan April 16th, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    Yanks being humiliated.

    Even all Yankee “will hit” group have to at least admit, watchin pavano do this to the Yankee lineup is a bit worrisome. Take away those first 2 hitters and were talkin about crazy Carl owning this lineup with an 88 mph fastball and a change. 4th time through a charm?

  263. Othello April 16th, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    I don’t know what is more underwhelming – our pitching staff or our offense.

    What is going to help this offense become consistent?

    Does anyone think Wade will last the season with Yanks ? Last year was good, but he doesn’t have good stuff at all. Much like Pavano – Garcia.

  272. ET April 16th, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    “Girardi giving up the game.”

  274. darbodla April 16th, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    There is little margin of error when you throw junk. You have to have excellent command. If you throw 95 you can get away with a mistake sometimes.

    “Said it would take 8 to win tonight a 730 pm. At 731, we stopped hitting.”

    Seems to be a theme with this group.

    They’ll score 8 and 9 runs the next 2 games, only to score 1 run on getaway day with Hughes on the mound and lose.

  279. rm April 16th, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    Wade is looking like the first man to be sent down when Andy comes back. Unless thet think it is time to give Phelps some starts in AAA.

  280. sdjohn April 16th, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    Having trouble scoring runs? Everyone think your team is the worst in the majors? Not hitting with RISP? Don’t worry just come on over to Yankee stadium where our pitchers love to accommodate below average hitting teams by consistently missing there spots, leaving balls thigh high with just enough tail to cut the plate down the center. What’s that? Don’t think the Danny Valencia’s, or the Alexi casillas of the world would benefit? Nonsense, just come on over to Yankee stadium and if our pitchers don’t make the mistakes, our manager will, guaranteed. So what are you waiting for?

  281. mick April 16th, 2012 at 9:49 pm

  283. JobaTipsHisCap April 16th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    this is pretty much thesame as last season, inconsistent offense, unreliable staring pitching.

    Martin can’t hit. I hope you enjoy what you’re seeing out of him, because this what you can expect all season long. Obviously, the Yanks could care less if they have a catcher who hits like a pitcher, so it is what it is.

    This is one boring team to try and root for.

    Luis,
    He may be ready but there aren’t any spots open in the rotation. There are 7 guys ahead of him in the rotation right now. He needs to start some more in the minors until the logjam clears up.

  336. Yankee Trader April 16th, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    Garcia might now be out of the rotation-poor starts vs two of the worst teams in the Orioles and Twins. The problem is that he’d be a poor option to bring in from the bullpen with runners on base.

    Pettitte projected major league debut is mid May.

    Trade him or pitch him against the likes of the Tigers, Red Sox and Rangers, teams remaining on the Yankees docket this month?

  337. Hassey April 16th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

  350. austinmac April 16th, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    For a supposed strength, the starting pitching has been pretty awful. Thank goodness for Kuroda. Perhaps, Colon, at least in the first half, would have been the better call.

    Then, none of the AAA starters are pitching well. That’s not because they are being brought up too quickly. So, what is up? How can both Bs be completely unable to find the plate?

    I repeat my small sample size mantra.

  351. bruceb April 16th, 2012 at 10:37 pm

    All you have to do to beat the Twins is pitch half-decent and have an average night with the bats. Sadly, we fell below average in both categories.

    With Dewayne Wise twisting his ankle tonight, look for an outfielder to move up from Trenton for awhile. One of the Almontes or Mesa is my guess? All three can play center field.

  354. bruceb April 16th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    Every time the Giants extend another pitcher, Lincecum looks worse.

    Cain, Bumgarner… they’d better not extend Barry Zito, or Lincecum might totally lose it.

    Basically, if the Yankees wanted to replace a Pitcher right now they could insert Phelps.

    He’s ready and seems competitive.

    Pettitte will be ready around May 1st or so.

    Pineda to follow.

    Thank you all for your therapy.:)

  363. blake April 16th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    The pitching wasn’t great tonight….but they didn’t hit after the first inning…..you don’t make adjustments against garbage Pavano and you lose……they hit a lit of balls hard at people….the umpire was terrible….but bottom line they didn’t get it done offensively tonight against a guy they should have hammered.

  364. 4 NYY April 16th, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    I don’t see Garcia doing the job in relief, but who knows ?

    Phelps – Hughes yes they can !

  365. MTU April 16th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    Blake-

    Tomorrow is another day and a fresh opportunity.

    The beauty of playing 162 games.

  366. Jerkface April 16th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Yankees patience is there, but the average & power isn’t there yet.

    All so true.

    As bad as Garcia and Hughes has been, they can’t match Lincecum’s 14.00 ERA in 3 starts this year.

  369. blake April 16th, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    MTU,

    yea I agree….this is easily the worst loss of the season so far though….they really need to win 3 of 4 in this series with the schedule upcoming….I mean it’s april so it’s not the end of the world but these are games that you win now it makes life easier on you later. A split with the Twins at home would be disappointing.

  370. G. Love April 16th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    “You know Freddy threw the ball really well. I liked what I saw on his pitches. Our guys were hitting the ball real hard. There was some foul balls and outs that were just hit so well. We hit 2 HR’s in the first inning. Offense wasn’t the problem. I feel real good about where we’re at.”

    Ok. I’m done channeling Girardi for the night.

  371. MTU April 16th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    So we’ll get the next 3 Blake.

    Just like you want.

    Watch CC tomorrow.

    ;)

  372. blake April 16th, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    Cano hasn’t really gotten going yet….and when he does that’ll solve a lot of problems….but they need to be better offensively….two similar pitchers on the hill and the Twins outslugged the Yanks….

  373. blake April 16th, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    MTU,

    lets hope….I’m looking for CC to get on track tomorrow.

  374. MTU April 16th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    Blake-

    They didn’t get enough hitting but the Pitching really failed them tonight.

    That was the real story of the game to me.

    Garcia, wade, and logan all sucked tonight.

    It happens.

  375. austinmac April 16th, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    Garcia and Pavano’s similarity caught my eye. Garcia actually topped out higher velocity wise. I hate off speed guys. Jeter is sure hitting. Even his outs are hit hard.

  376. MTU April 16th, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    Mac-

    Lot’s balls were hit hard tonight they just didn’t find holes or drop in.

    Maybe tomorrow they will.

    Or Maybe they won’t need to if CC finally does his thing.

    ;)

  377. Bronx Jeers April 16th, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    Feeling bad that we got beat by Carl Pavano?

    Sit back and enjoy ” The Bronx Buttocks ”

  378. Nick in SF April 16th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    It’s just Pavano, man. Pavano.

    We’ll crush the other guys.

    Just Pavano.

    :cry:

  379. Nick in SF April 16th, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    Pavaaaaaaaaano! :mad:

  380. MTU April 16th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    Tomorrow we win.

    Have a good evening.

    :)

  381. blake April 16th, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Verlander’s 131st and last pitch to close the game was 100 mph today…..beast

    Night all

  382. MTU April 16th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Blake-

    I told you before.

    He’s an Android.

    :)

  383. mclogic April 16th, 2012 at 11:23 pm

    oh pavano. only time he could win would be AGAINST the yankees. heres a pretty well written blog!

    :) And that’s why his post-game interviews are a waste of air time.

  385. UnKnown April 17th, 2012 at 12:07 am

    So MO pretty much has to throw tomorrow, no matter the circumstance right. Hopefully he isn’t rusty.

  386. ron April 17th, 2012 at 12:18 am

    This friday pettitte will throw 65-70 pitches,next wed,70-85,monday 75-90.

    In about 18 days,pettitte will be able to throw 100 pitches for us,barring no setbacks.
    If we were that hurting,pettitte could pitch in 13 days,giving us 75-90 pitches.

    Bottom line,pettitte is 3 starts away,or 2 1/2 weeks.
    Depending on what hughes does,garcia will be the first one gone,unless hughes keeps imploding.
    Then unless hughes get’s much better,he will be next when pineda returns.
    You wan’t to give hughes every opportunity to flourish,but he just looks like he can’t figure it out,at least yet,wich is a shame.

  387. Rich in NJ April 17th, 2012 at 12:20 am

    As I said last night, Jeter should bat in an RBI position in the lineup.

  388. Nick in SF April 17th, 2012 at 12:29 am

    Sir Francis Ford Coppola is at the SF Giants game.

    He’s sitting right behind head honcho Larry Baer.

  389. Deal With It April 17th, 2012 at 1:09 am

    Francis Ford Coppola, cool a 400 lb slob stuffed into that little seat at AT & T. Perhaps instead of sucking down a dozen hot dogs he should look into lap band surgery.
