Holland vs. Yankees

TIME/TV: 7:05 p.m., MY9 and ESPN

WEATHER: Temperatures in the 70s, dipping into the upper 60s, with none of the snowy, rainy nonsense that’s going on back home.

UMPIRES: HP Tim McClelland, 1B Ted Barrett, 2B Brian Runge, 3B Marvin Hudson

GOING DEEP (IN THE HEART OF TEXAS): The Yankees lead the Majors with 27 home runs and have homered in seven consecutive games. They have hit at least three home runs in each of their past three games, matching their longest such stretch over the past 55 years (ninth time since 1957).

BETTER THAN LAST YEAR: Nick Swisher leads the American League with 20 RBI and is tied for second with 10 extra-base hits. He’s reached base safely in 14 of 15 games. Last year Swisher did not record his 10th extra-base hit until May 29 (game No. 47), which is also the game he picked up his 20th RBI.

ON THIS DATE: On April 23, 2000, Bernie Williams and Jorge Posada became the first pair of teammates in Major League history to each homer from both sides of the plate in the same game.

UPDATE, 7:20 p.m.: Yankees strike first here in Texas. Two-out, two-run single by Granderson has the Yankees in front 2-0 in the first inning.

UPDATE, 7:30 p.m.: Texas got one run in the first, but a Yankees double play limited the damage and it’s a 2-1 Yankees lead heading into the second.

UPDATE, 8:06 p.m.: Sabathia looks pretty sharp. His slider has been a legitimate weapon and he’s through three innings with just the one Rangers run on the board. Four of his past six outs have been strikeouts.

UPDATE, 8:31 p.m.: After a Swisher sac fly and a Rodriguez three-run homer, the Yankees have a 6-1 lead with Sabathia still on the mound in the fifth. Sabathia has thrown just 48 pitches.

UPDATE, 8:54 p.m.: Sabathia struck out the side in the bottom of the fifth, then back-to-back sixth-inning doubles — by Chris Stewart and Derek Jeter — gave the Yankees an additional run and a 7-1 lead.

UPDATE, 9:00 p.m.: That’s Josh Hamilton’s eighth homer of the year. It’s now 7-2 in the sixth.

UPDATE, 9:25 p.m.: Gentry gets a double just past Teixeira and into right field, scoring two and pulling the Rangers within 7-4 with the top of the order coming up.

UPDATE, 9:29 p.m.: Sabathia gets the next two batters to get out of the seventh with a 7-4 lead intact.

    Go C!!!!!!! Go Yanks!

  2. Don April 23rd, 2012 at 7:03 pm

    Go Yankees, deep in the heart of Texas.

  3. kd April 23rd, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    would anyone sign josh hamilton as a free agent?

    clearly an upgrade over swisher, but some significant risks there.

    my guess is that 189 limit will keep them away, but he might be a red sox if they offer him enough dough

  4. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 7:06 pm

    Go Yankees Go CC!!

    Kd,

    My take is that the Rangers have plenty of payroll room to resign him. Especially if i am not mistaken with their new TV deal

  5. Yankee Trader April 23rd, 2012 at 7:06 pm

    Please can we suspend with the “negative waves”

  6. tomingeorgia April 23rd, 2012 at 7:06 pm

    trisha,
    I’ll take the laptop with me, but the “other room” is the bedroom. Once I get there, I’m out pretty soon. May pipe up later, but not likely.

  7. Salliedogs7 April 23rd, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    Go CC. Go Yanks.

  8. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    For any who may be concerned about the Yankee offense, I hope you take note that the team with the best ERA in the majors might be expected to keep the run production down and if that happens, it’s not a black eye to the offense. That’s where the saying “good pitching stops good hitting” comes from.

    Enjoy the game all.

    I think I’ll watch this one and not have to wade through any potential complaining posts, especially facing this team.

    Later.

  9. austinmac April 23rd, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    Tom,

    I too have a wife whom I like contented. I will watch on my iPad with a free espn app. It works great.

  10. yankeefeminista April 23rd, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    Yeah, Jeet!!!

  11. Benny Blanco April 23rd, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    derek not waisting anytime

  12. LGY April 23rd, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    If you could bet on Jeter leading off the game with a hit if a LHS is on the mound you’d make a lot of money.

  13. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    El Capitan!!

  14. jmv April 23rd, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    The Red Sox already have Crawford, I guess they can’t afford Hamilton

    Go CC! Go Yankees!!!

  15. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    Regardless good at bat from Swish….Productive out

  16. kd April 23rd, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    has nunez played in the of yet this year?

  17. LGY April 23rd, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    Are there more LHS in the AL this year or has it just been sending scheduling thing for the Yankees?

  18. jmv April 23rd, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    That’s a 15 mm SS to me…

  19. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    No kd

  20. Benny Blanco April 23rd, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    if cano gets hot, pitchers better be very afraid.

  21. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    Good line drive, lets bring the captain in

  22. yankeefeminista April 23rd, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    Atta boy, Robi.

  23. tomingeorgia April 23rd, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    austin,
    Hate to trade the big screen for a small one, but domestic peace is not over valued. Plus, she relented, so I can watch the first half hour here. Nice of her, I’d say (and I did).

  24. kd April 23rd, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    thanks luis, he should. might be better out there than jones at this point in their careers

  25. yankeefeminista April 23rd, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    You mean Cano being Cano hot?

  26. Benny Blanco April 23rd, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    alex is 0-17 against lefties?? what gives?

  27. 4 NYY April 23rd, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    A-Rod due against a lefty ? I’ll say !

  28. Yankee Trader April 23rd, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    Walk A-Rod and face Tex who has murdered Holland in the past.

  29. jmv April 23rd, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    Let’s get at least one, go Yanks!!!

  30. muwarriorsfan April 23rd, 2012 at 7:16 pm

    So Arod’s bat is so slow he couldn’t hit a 3-1 fastball?

  31. muwarriorsfan April 23rd, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Have to get somebody in here..

  32. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    kd April 23rd, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    thanks luis, he should. might be better out there than jones at this point in their careers

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

    In this particular juncture (Gardy down) yup…. But not long term IMO

  33. jmv April 23rd, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Go Mark! (Tex could be misleading, LOL)

  34. muwarriorsfan April 23rd, 2012 at 7:18 pm

    Well, Yanks back to being the poor clutch-hitting Yanks…

    Like last year, score huge one game and tank the next.

  35. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    I feel Curtis is the man

  36. muwarriorsfan April 23rd, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    Yanks couldn’t even get one friggin’ run in.

    Now watch CC get slaughtered early.

  37. jmv April 23rd, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    I’m with you with the Grandy man, luis

  38. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    AND HE IS!!!!

  39. yankeefeminista April 23rd, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    The Grandy Man can!!!

  40. muwarriorsfan April 23rd, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    miracle of miracles

  41. LGY April 23rd, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    Super unclutch.

  42. rm April 23rd, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    Grandyman!!

  43. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    Good call luis!

    ;)

  44. Against All Odds April 23rd, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    Grandy

  45. Yankee Trader April 23rd, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    Luis-

    Good situational hitting there :)

  46. Benny Blanco April 23rd, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    21 pitches? who does holland think he is? Hughes? :)

  47. NYY fan in NH April 23rd, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    way to fight off that pitch Curtis. Get his pitch count up.. Nice to get an early lead

  48. kd April 23rd, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    turns out the grandy man can

  49. 4 NYY April 23rd, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    Grandy man can. I’ve praised Grandy ever since he came here. He’s a great guy to have on this team and really improved his hitting since his 1st yr. here.

    Personality and make-up are superb.

  50. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    Yankee Trader April 23rd, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    Luis-

    Good situational hitting there :)

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

    :D , no man…That’s clutch!!

  51. Against All Odds April 23rd, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    muwarriorsfan April 23rd, 2012 at 7:18 pm

    Well, Yanks back to being the poor clutch-hitting Yanks…

    Like last year, score huge one game and tank the next

    ———

    I know they are so bad. Hopefully they can score this inning

  52. Benny Blanco April 23rd, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    CC needs a 1-2-3 inning.

  53. jmv April 23rd, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    So much for the un-clutch hitting… Ha!

  54. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    “Good situational hitting there :)

    Good approach.

    :)

  55. 4 NYY April 23rd, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    Then there’s “smily” Jones. He’s done okay, I guess.

  56. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 7:23 pm

    Ok 2 runs in….CC mow’em dowm!!

  57. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    “Well, Yanks back to being the poor clutch-hitting Yanks…

    Like last year, score huge one game and tank the next”

    muwarriors, part of the list of posters who panic prematurely and then look silly.

    When will you learn!

  58. jmv April 23rd, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    Trisha, I know you are reading…

  59. 4 NYY April 23rd, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    Would like to see a more permanent DH next year. Not a fan of lefty righty tandem.

  60. 4 NYY April 23rd, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    Hi ya’ TRISH !

  61. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    He should habe been k’d

  62. 4 NYY April 23rd, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    This should be a tough game, we’ll see.

  63. jmv April 23rd, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    4NYY,

    As long as A-Rod and Jeter be around, there’s gonna be a lot of platoon

  64. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    *have*

  65. muwarriorsfan April 23rd, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    So CC is called an “ace,” huh?

  66. Against All Odds April 23rd, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    90

  67. muwarriorsfan April 23rd, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    When does he actually pitch a good game?

  68. NYY fan in NH April 23rd, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    way to go CC, i’ll trade a run for 2 outs against Hamilton

  69. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    Heads up play by Cano….Good trade off

  70. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    Hey 4 NYY!

    YAY ROBBY!!!!

    Hopefully CC can dig deep even though he’s on extra rest.

  71. jacksquat April 23rd, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    wth, is it legal for a baserunner to try to get hit with the throw?

  72. Against All Odds April 23rd, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    muwarriorsfan April 23rd, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    So CC is called an “ace,” huh?

    ——–

    Exactly we need a dp here hopefully we can get one

  73. LockDown April 23rd, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    CC minimizing damage

  74. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    “When does he actually pitch a good game?”

    Do you realize he’s on extra rest?

    Do you realize that he typically struggles on extra rest.

    He’s looking damned good despite that.

    PAY ATTENTION!

  75. xcv April 23rd, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    faux ace sabathia got lucky there

  76. kd April 23rd, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    this feels like a 10-8 games to me

    let’s hope cc can settle down and make the texas batter uncomfortable

  77. Yankee Trader April 23rd, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    One minute video in between innings for the naysayers:

  78. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    Hey Lock! If the umpiring is fair, CC might pull this one out!

  79. Against All Odds April 23rd, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    muwarriorsfan April 23rd, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    When does he actually pitch a good game

    ——————-

    I know he’s never pitched a good game. I don’t think he’s ever beaten the Sox as a Yankee.

  80. Benny Blanco April 23rd, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    Trisha,

    He only comes around during the game threads. he adds nothing but rubbish. Pay him no mind.

  81. jmv April 23rd, 2012 at 7:32 pm

    CC needs to get out of the first inning, he gets better the rest of the game

  82. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 7:32 pm

    YT – there’s no cure for naysayers. Their ridiculous commentary turns into their own karma.

    Swish doing his Reggie.

  101. yankeefeminista April 23rd, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Grr! Great play. Crushed it.

  102. jmv April 23rd, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    Gotta love “En fuego”. In Spanish we use to say “encendido”, but it sounds good to me! Bad luck, Swish

  103. 4 NYY April 23rd, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    All you can do is hit it ! Can’t always guide it. Tho Jeter sure seems to.

  104. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    GGood at bat from Jeet, Swish is driving th ball very well, the important thing Holland threw 11 more pitches after Stewart!! That’s the approach i like.

  105. Asd April 23rd, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    Ooh… close. Too bad, thought he was going to bump up to 22 there.

  106. jacksquat April 23rd, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    I hate lucky soft ground ball double plays.

  108. Asd April 23rd, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    Josh went extra hard on that play because he is second in RBI and doesn’t want more work catching up.

  109. NYY fan in NH April 23rd, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    Meanwhile, the NYR are behind again and haven’t scored in 5 periods.

  110. yankeefeminista April 23rd, 2012 at 7:43 pm

  116. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    YF – it’s all good. Truly. I know who you are. And I hope you know you’re never included in my discussion about nonsensical postings because I see you as a fair and grounded poster.

    You’re right, my way is not to worry about the future. I don’t tend to borrow trouble.

    ;)

  117. kd April 23rd, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    the rangers got lucky there, swish hit that one squarely. jeet would have scored

  118. yankeefeminista April 23rd, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    Ugh.

    Unusual for Tex.

    Very unusual

  122. xcv April 23rd, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    jeter’s nunez impression

  123. 4 NYY April 23rd, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    Easy for both usually.

  124. Niblick April 23rd, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    Derek’s obviously thinking about his next base hit.

  125. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 7:47 pm

    4 NYY – it definitely will be “low cal” fast food! At some point I’ll take a quick run to the corner Mexican Food restaurant.

    :)

  126. 4 NYY April 23rd, 2012 at 7:47 pm

    As long as it doesn’t hurt, it doesn’t matter.

  127. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    I know it’s early, but CC looking strong.

    YES!

    (Does anyone remember how Pete Abe told us that we couldn’t say “YES” as a post or we would be banned?)

    :D

  128. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    Very good way to pick up Jeter

    Sorry. Don’t mean to be the grammar police, but Kay likes to try and use “big” words. Of course, he frequently misuses them.

    “The game in Japan is going to rivet them.” Ugh.

    Rivet as a verb must be as with the “to be” verb.

    They’re going to be riveted to their TVs… or
    They’re going to be riveted by the game.

    Back to baseball: Anyone else surprised there aren’t more runs at this point?

    How far are you from McCoy?

  162. yankeefeminista April 23rd, 2012 at 8:14 pm

    Hard to believe they couldn’t get Pineda in for the MRI today. I checked every five minutes for a result. Another day of that? :(

    It’ll suck to see Matsui in a Rays uni, but glad someone is giving him a chance. Miss him.

  163. LGY April 23rd, 2012 at 8:14 pm

    CC has a 3.42 career ERA on five days rest vs 3.52 on regular rest.

  164. yankeefeminista April 23rd, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    That’s it, C. Efficient inning here.

  165. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    Depending upon traffic I could probably make it to McCoy in 12 minutes. I will have seen at least 5 innings of the game, I would think. Maybe even more. That will satsify me. I definitely want to catch our game. So I’ll do both. I also want to see Cisco!!!

    :)

    I’ll try to take pics. If I don’t get to do it tomorrow, I’ll have plenty of time during the season.

  166. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 8:16 pm

    “CC has a 3.42 career ERA on five days rest vs 3.52 on regular rest.”

    I just remember him having a lot of trouble when Joe went to the 6-man rotation. Even CC has said he pitches better on regular rest. Maybe you should sent him the stats!

  175. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 8:21 pm

    LHY – where did you find those stats? How did you figure out which games where on what kind of rest?

  176. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 8:22 pm

    I meant LGY

  177. jmv April 23rd, 2012 at 8:22 pm

    The breaking ball from Holland is a little off the plate. They should sit on the FB

  178. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 8:23 pm

    YES!!! Pitching 101…..Never walk the 9th hitter…I think we are scoring this inning

  179. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    Holland at 73 pitches, CC at 28.

    Stewart!!!

  200. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 8:30 pm

    Brian the Red Sux fan has to be absolutely vomiting bile at this moment. He hates the Yankees with a passion, but the main target of his hatred is Jeter. He thinks he is totally overrated, a lucky hitter, a lousy fielder – and he actually told me that he had great respect for Maddon until Maddon did not move one of his players over where Jeter got a hit one day, because “everyone knows it’s the only place Jeter can hit.”

    He HATES him with a passion!

    I guarantee you that he has a story for every hit Jete has gotten this season. None of them are legitimate hits, of course…

    Remember when he dismissed the Yanks during the postseason when the Rangers played the Yankees, saying they weren’t at all worried about the Yankees?

    this is the first time I’ve seen Stewart behind the plate but I really like the way he handles himself-he gives his pitcher a solid target with no wasted movement.

    He’s supposed to have a good arm as well, right?

    Pretty good pickup for the Yankees…

  310. 4 NYY April 23rd, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    I hope Gardner becomes good enough to lead off and have Jeter 2nd but I’m beginning to doubt that ever happening. But, who knows ?

  311. Bret The Hitman April 23rd, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    Martin is the only Yankee hitter playing like a scrub now. I would reward Stewart with another start.

  312. yankeefeminista April 23rd, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    Bret,

    The man is on a mission. I read J Sherman’s blog that he was not happy of how the contract talks went about. He wants that MVP so the 8 mil option turns in to a 12 mil if i am not mistaken.

  314. Bret The Hitman April 23rd, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    CC, despite the blast from Hamilton, looks like he could pitch a complete game tonight. It would be a nice early season gift to give the bullpen their 2nd day off in a row. They have been bailing out the starters thus far.

  318. MG April 23rd, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    I’ve said this before but Derek Jeter can play shortstop on my team for as long as he wants to be out there.

    You don’t question the judgement of a 1st ballot HOFer, no one knows better than Jetes about whether he can still play or not. He hasn’t had this career without the desire to be the best and the will to work hard enough to stay there.

  319. Bret The Hitman April 23rd, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    Luis,

    At this rate Jeter can decline that option and get far more than 12 million. I never got down on him like others on this blog. I’ve always maintained that he can still hit .300 even through 2010. I’ve always believed he will age well. He’s got 4-5 more years in him.

    I didnt understand the trade for Stewart at first but looking at his defense seems like a good pickup for the Yanks. Cervelli might have to get comfortable in AAA or might he be trade bait?

  325. Bret The Hitman April 23rd, 2012 at 9:09 pm

    And I’m very confident he can reach the 4000 hit plateau. I think Rose is out of reach though.

  332. yankeefeminista April 23rd, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    Trisha, bottomline, they need to have good AB’s in the playoffs. Swish needs to have a level swing like he is showing now. Teix ditto from the left side, needs to be able to go opposite. Martin can’t be a black hole. We can still appreciate the present while analyzing what we need to do to be successful in the future. They are not mutually exclusive. Do what you need to do. Let others do the same. Enjoy. ;)

    “I didnt understand the trade for Stewart at first but looking at his defense seems like a good pickup for the Yanks. Cervelli might have to get comfortable in AAA or might he be trade bait?”

    If Romine hadn’t gone down we wouldn’t have seen this. I think circumstances surrounding both Stewart and Cervelli pretty much dictated Cervelli going down and Stewart coming over.

    Yankees want good D in their catchers. It seems Stewart was an excellent pick.

  334. 4 NYY April 23rd, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Stewart is definitely a better defensive catcher than Cervelli. But, he will get a chance sooner or later, somewhere.

  338. yankeefeminista April 23rd, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    Cervelli was trade bait once, but probably keep him in AAA for insurance. Plus already Martin needs a rest after a day off. You know Martin is not 100%, same issues as last year I am guessing. But not opposed to resting him if he is that fragile. Joe definitely needs to keep him fresher than he was last year.

  339. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 9:16 pm

    CC throwing alot of pitches this inning. Losing his location. Now the top of the order. This is do or die right here

    Wang I hear ya. But there are people who live so much with worry about everything that might happen that they totally miss out on what’s in front of them.

    So I try to spread my love of the moment with any who might want to embrace it!

    Some people have actually thanked me for that! (Of course, not everyone!)

  379. Against All Odds April 23rd, 2012 at 9:29 pm

    Despite what his line says I think CC pitched well tonight.

  380. jmv April 23rd, 2012 at 9:29 pm

    Quick poll: CC or Logan vs Hamilton? (Just fot fun, because D-Rob is the EIG)

  381. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    Really thought the last shot by Rodriguez had enough legs to get over the fense, but, still, he’s had 4 really good at bats, and that shortstop (forgot his name) is just lucky that there’s nobody standing where the ball comes down.

    It’s Jeter’s early season power show and run production that’s the real surprise.

  382. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    Odds, yeah it’s kind of aggravating to see the 4 ER because he pitched really well tonight. Tex makes that play at first 99 time out of 100…

    I believe that was only the 2nd hit Hamilton has had off CC in his career.

  387. Abomb82 April 23rd, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    When is CC going to start pitching like an ace again? It’s almost May now. He has been mediocre at best since the rain delay Seattle game last year,

  388. jmv April 23rd, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    AAO,

    He did pitch well.

  389. blake April 23rd, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    Nice job limiting damage there by CC….he’s still not totally right yet but tonight was a step in the right direction and a good outing….big difference was command of that slider which was an awesome pitch for him tonight. The velocity still is 100% there yet but at least he was on top tonight and had that good angle on his pitches.

    Don’t know what else to say about Derek….he looks like he’s 27 again….unreal.

    Good AB’s by Alex tonight….he loves this ballpark….

    Score more runs….may need them

  390. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    jmv,

    CC on principle…Of course it depends on pitch count and overall situation of the game

  391. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    Rob Segedin with his 4th homer for Tampa Yanks tonight. Tampa leads 3-2 in the 8th inning. Only farm team playing tonight.

    Boston down 4-3. Ryan Doumit with a big hit. He was mentioned in the past as a good bat to both catch and play corner OF. He’s a FA at the end of the season.

  394. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    I mean in this exact situation, but D-Rob not available.
    I’ll go with CC

    Lester’s a killer, ha ha!

  402. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    Abomb,

    CC pitched way better than those four runs…In any case this is a batters park and you are facing arguably the best offensive team in the Mayors.

  403. Bret The Hitman April 23rd, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    Trader,

    Doumit is a nice DH candidate. The emergency catching is a bonus.

  404. blake April 23rd, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    I like leaving CC in here to face Hamilton.

  405. Jerkface April 23rd, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    I believe that was only the 2nd hit Hamilton has had off CC in his career.

    4th.

    4 for 21 now, but with 2 HR and 1 2B.

  409. blake April 23rd, 2012 at 9:40 pm

    Guys were talking on the radio the other day if the cutter had ruined Lester….said he’s fallen in love with it and throws it way too much and it’s flattened out the rest of his pitches…..sound familiar?

  410. J. Alfred Prufrock April 23rd, 2012 at 9:40 pm

    C’s no ace, that’s for sure

  411. Bret The Hitman April 23rd, 2012 at 9:40 pm

    CG for CC?

  412. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 9:41 pm

  413. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 9:41 pm

    Wow.

    Huge kudos to Girardi.

  414. blake April 23rd, 2012 at 9:41 pm

    The Yankees tried to reteach Phil his slider but then went to the cutter. They should’ve never given up on the slider.

  419. blake April 23rd, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    I think it’s funny when people say CC isn’t an ace because they have no idea what they are talking about

  420. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 23rd, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    Bret – is a CG with 4 runs really that big a deal? When I think of CGs it’s usually shutout kinds of deals, or 1 run thingys.

  421. J. Alfred Prufrock April 23rd, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    I went into a Yankee site and a Hallmark card broke out…

  422. luis April 23rd, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    “Blake 110 pitches, no need to push it so early…I would like him to be fresh for when it really counts ;)”

    he’s cruised a lot of the game….pitch counts are overrated….to me it’s more about how hard they’ve worked and if they are tired….he doesn’t look that tired to me…I’d be fine either way with whatever Joe decides here though.

  437. UnKnown April 23rd, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    I think they should just go to MO. Really can’t go wrong either way with having CC go CG or MO. But I would personally go to MO because I don’t want him to have to come in with guys on if CC can’t get the first few guys.

    I knew Valentine would be a catastrophe but not to this extent and not so soon. It’s so satisfying. I was fantasizing about this since the Tampa series where I was rooting for the Yankees to tank for this very reason. I said back then if the Sox missed the playoffs they would fire Francona and hire Valentine and he would be a disaster. But he has surpassed even my expectations. It’s early still but I don’t see him surviving the season.

    When is the last time a young position player for young pitcher went in favor of the young pitcher?

    Just not smart to trade elite young bats for project pitching. If the guy has a track record, fine, but the stats show the risk is simply not worth it. It is too easy to get tantalized with a guy with good stuff with a limited track record – GMs can dream of the guy turning into another Pedro, but he likely will just turn into another Edinson Volquez or Jonathan Sanchez.
