    Joe is trying to sucker the Twins into walking Gardner to get to the pitch-… Stewart.

    59 years ago today, at Griffith Stadium in Washington, DC, Chuck Stobbs served up a gopher ball to Mickey Mantle. It was hit out to left center field and grazed the side of the scoreboard as it left the park. It was paced off at 565 feet. The home run came two years to the day after Mantle played in his first ML game.

    Luis, I think as long as a pitcher’s innings are built up and he can get major league hitters out, he’s ready. I think both those conditions were satisfied.

    You could argue that he had an innings jump that was too big from 2005 to 2006 (86 to 146), but that was before he reached the majors.

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

    I won’t argue that, because he had enough stuff to get MLB hitters out. But not on a consistent basis, therefore his apparent inability to put them away and have long outings. I know that his injury in Arlington has a lot to do with it. My theory is that he wasn’t mature enough to handle the responsibility (How many high stress innings has he pitched up to that point?), he pushed himself too hard and pull the hamstring as a result. He has never been the same since.

    The lineup v. LHP should be able to compensate for Stewart.

    Robbie Cano looks awful at the plate. We all know he’s going to turn it around, but he has looked terrible. He’s swinging out of his shoes at pitches out of the zone. Luckily, we saw somewhat of an adjustment yesterday with the walk he took against Pavano.

    Let’s hope he keeps taking the walks. If he doesn’t, they’re never gonna throw it in the zone to him at all.

    “Who are you calling thin-skinned, you overbearing jerk?”

    Gb7
    See, that’s why Orville sent you on a all expenses paid trip

    He could tell you were mean by the way you treated golf balls . You’d just hit them once and move on to a new ball.
    No loyalty whatsoever or commitment to one ball .

    The golf gods were so happy Orville made this decision they treated him with a us open victory

    You even hurt their eyes and they’ve seen every golfer who ever played the game

    Orville himself said that he’d never seen anything like the things that I could do on the golf course. He called it the most amazing thing he’d ever seen.

  12. Rich in NJ April 17th, 2012 at 4:13 pm

    “He’s swinging out of his shoes at pitches out of the zone”

    Cano is often a victim of his own superior plate coverage. At times, it’s seems that it’s hard for him to differentiate between which bad pitches he can drive and which ones he can’t.

    Given his age, no other player in the lineup concerns me less.

    But I hear you about the need to be more selective.

  13. Pat M. April 17th, 2012 at 4:26 pm

    Rich in NJ…..Cano gets a little antsyat the plate when he appears to go into a mini drought…….Then he’ll go on a tear

    How many mL starts will Pineda make?

  15. theREALkevin April 17th, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    Stewart had better be flawless defensively. Cervelli can be frustrating but his career avg is over .270 & has a knack for clutch hits at times. Plus he adds energy and intensity. Stewart was favored by Girardi cuz he’s more of a veteran and hes better on D. Yawn.

  16. randy l. April 17th, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    “Orville himself said that he’d never seen anything like the things that I could do on the golf course. He called it the most amazing thing he’d ever seen.”

    he didn’t even get the chance to see you on a keyboard either. it’s rare to have such unique skills in two things.

    Probably. I left him in shock over my natural skills.

    enough to send stuckey on blog sabbatical for two months :)

    I think he already started it, because i haven’t seen him around.

    Tyler Austin won last week’s Sally League Player Of The Week.

  21. Bret The Hitman April 17th, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    What is the ETA for Gary Sanchez as a ML starting catcher? He’s only 19 but still.

  22. luis April 17th, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    GB7,

    Is this kid the real thing, or is it just a mirage?

  23. blake April 17th, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    “How many mL starts will Pineda make?”

    Hopefully enough that he’s able to throw 97 again and enough that they’ll get the extra year of control

  24. luis April 17th, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    Bret,

    My guess if all goes well…..2014

  25. Bret The Hitman April 17th, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    I know Tampa is close by for G. Sanchez but how about Trenton? Could he possibly finish 2012 at Trenton?

  26. randy l. April 17th, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    “I think he already started it, because i haven’t seen him around.”

    luis-

    if he left because of pineda going to the minors, it was a smart tactical move because now stuckey doesn’t have to lose face when the actual time comes.

    i mean , what could be worse than telling me i’m an idiot nonstop and then me winning a bet with him over who would be in the minors first, montero or pineda.

    there was a certain amount of luck involved because montero could have gotten hurt too being a catcher and have to do minor league rehab.

    i was actually figuring that pineda would implode from the stress and pressure of having so much riding on every start in new york.

    just look at the pressure hughes and garcia are under right now. it never stops in new york for yankee players.

    pineda could be really good , but he’s going to have to do a lot of maturing to get up to speed for yankee stadium. can he shrug off cheap homers to right the way nova does.

    thats going to be his biggest problem i think.

  27. GreenBeret7 April 17th, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    Line-up change. Teixeira out with the flu. Swisher at 1B. Jeter at DH. Nunez at shortstop.

  28. luis April 17th, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    No Bret….too fast, he ends up in Tampa this year…In 2013 he starts in Tampa and ends up in Trenton mid season…2014 he may have a shot at triple A and maybe a call up in Sept.

  29. Against All Odds April 17th, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    Damn that flu that started with Nova and Cano is going around.

  30. randy l. April 17th, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    that too :)

    “I know Tampa is close by for G. Sanchez but how about Trenton? Could he possibly finish 2012 at Trenton?”

    Possible but I kinda doubt it…..unless he just destroyed high A id guess the plan is for hin to start 2013 at Trenton if all goes well……

  32. GreenBeret7 April 17th, 2012 at 5:02 pm

    Luis, Austin is for real right now. He hit great at both rookie levels last year. He’s been moved to right field.

  33. Pat M. April 17th, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    LGY…..Pineda will get enough starts to get me the 10 wins I need to win my wager with Nicky Boy from the Bay……

  34. Bronx Jeers April 17th, 2012 at 5:07 pm

    Too bad for Teixeira. He had a couple of 2 hit games in a row.

  35. Cashmoney April 17th, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    Just a thought… developing young talents, especially pitching, under the mandate of winning the WS every year can be difficult. I just think the Yanks , if they haven’t so, might wanna change that mantra to accommodate the new challenges posed by the new CBA.

  36. Cashmoney April 17th, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    Pat M…dont know if the odds on that is good….

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

    Yup, I wasn’t thrilled to see the kid almost crying in his last start. To be honest, i rather see him spend the rest of the season in the minors. I don’t think is going to happen, because the FO will feel the need to save face.

    Ideally, i would let him pitch in the minors to get acclimated to the Yankee way and work on the change and get healthy in a pressure free environment. Doing the same they did to Hughes would be borderline criminal, knowing what it already did to him.

    What i would do is trade Garcia as soon as Pettitte is ready. Send Hughes to the minors if the FO still has hopes that he can be a SP, if not send to the BP. I would give the chance to Phelps to be the 5th starter. He seems to be ready for the job.

    About if he is going to be able to handle things like Nova?….I don’t know yet, i haven’t seen him enough to know. But one thing is for certain, That kind of attitude you either have it or you don’t. You can’t teach mental toughness. Everything else, you can.

    As the longitidunal arch collapses so does the transverse arch. The transverse arch is the arch that runs across the forefoot and is formed by the 5 metatarsal bones.
