Scherzer vs. Yankees

TIME/TV: 1:05 p.m., YES Network and TBS

WEATHER: Feels a lot like yesterday. Chilly but not really cold. Little bit of wind blowing out to center.

UMPIRES: HP Rob Drake, 1B Cory Blaser, 2B Joe West, 3B Andy Fletcher

SWISH’S START: Nick Swisher got off to a brutal start last season, but this year he’s reached base safely in 18 of 20 games, hitting safely in 16 of those. Nine of his past 11 hits have gone for extra bases and he leads the American League with 15 extra-base hits this season.

ROUGH PATCH: Today’s game ends a stretch of 21 games to start the season, of which 15 came against the other three 2011 American League playoff teams (Detroit, Texas, Tampa Bay) and the teams with the next-best 2011 records (Boston and Los Angeles).

TOMORROW IN YANKEES HISTORY: Tomorrow marks the anniversary of Lou Gehrig’s final game of his 2,130 consecutive games played. On April 30, 1939 he went 0-for-4 in a 3-2 loss against Washington at the original Yankee Stadium. After a team off day on May 1, Gehrig asked manager Joe McCarthy to be kept out of the lineup on May 2 at Detroit. He never played in another Major League game.

UPDATE, 1:15 p.m.: Sabathia strikes out Fielder, strands a double and gets through a scoreless first inning. Fielder never had a shot at that strike-three slider.

UPDATE, 1:37 p.m.: Two more strikeouts for Sabathia. Looks sharp today.

UPDATE, 1:53 p.m.: After Jeter’s infield single loaded the bases, Granderson draws a walk for a 1-0 Yankees lead. Scherzer’s command has been erratic these first two innings.

UPDATE, 1:54 p.m.: Weakly hit, but Rodriguez has an infield single for a 2-0 Yankees lead. That brings Cano to the plate, still with the bases loaded and two outs.

UPDATE, 2:22 p.m.: Sabathia’s been dealing, but Fielder just took him deep on a first-pitch breaking ball up in the zone. The homer went into the second deck and it’s 2-1 as Sabathia ends the top of the fourth inning.

UPDATE, 2:29 p.m.: Almost an unreal catch by Austin Jackson. Instead it’s a solo homer for Curtis Granderson, good for a 3-1 Yankees lead in the fourth.

UPDATE, 3:18 p.m.: Swisher left today’s game with a tight left hamstring. He’s going for a precautionary MRI. It’s worth noting that no one has been pulled from the Triple-A game (I would have to assume Dewayne Wise is first in line for a call-up).

UPDATE, 3:45 p.m.: Replay looks like Rob Drake got it right. Stewart slides home just under the tag, scoring on Rodriguez’s career RBI No. 1,904. That moves Rodriguez ahead of Willie Mays into sole possession of eight place all time.

UPDATE, 3:48 p.m.: Add a sac fly and it’s 5-2 Yankees in the bottom of the seventh.

    Hello everyone,

    Greetings from Ireland! GO CC GO YANKEES!

    By the way…The FO made th4e right decision regarding Phelps and Mitchell. I am excited about how Mitchell will perform.

  5. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 29th, 2012 at 1:12 pm

    Ireland? What are you doing in Ireland luis?

    Beautiful azure sky in the Bronx, C looked good pitching to Jackson :), and life is good.

    Yankees made a fast move. They made me feel much better about their having their stuff together!

  6. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    Que tal, Luis? Are you watching the game on mlb-tv?

  7. Against All Odds April 29th, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    CC

  8. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    Sorry I am not at the game, but my bro has the tix…

    K!!! Bada** C!!!!!!

  9. Yankee Trader April 29th, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    No homers in last 71,now 72 ABs for Fielder

  10. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    Some work Trisha

  11. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    Yankeefem,

    Of course!! this is the best thing i have ever done in my life!

  12. UnKnown April 29th, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    Love the slider so far today.

  13. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:17 pm

    luis, I hear ya!!!

  14. UnKnown April 29th, 2012 at 1:18 pm

    Not to nitpick the notes above but 14 out of the first 21 games have come against the better teams in the AL. 3 vs the o’s and 4 vs the twins rounds out the 21.

  15. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:18 pm

    Go, Jeet!

  16. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:18 pm

    BB, here we go.

  17. Yankee Trader April 29th, 2012 at 1:19 pm

    Is Mitchell getting the start and Phelps staying in the bullpen?

  18. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:19 pm

    El capitan showing patience!

  19. UnKnown April 29th, 2012 at 1:19 pm

    Benefit of the balls and strikes calling has gone the way of the good guys so far today, but its early.

  20. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 29th, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    There’s your small ball. Good job Grandy!

  21. TheStraw April 29th, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    That was strange.

  22. jacksquat April 29th, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    No bunt in first inning against Scherzer by a guy on pace to hit 40+ home runs. :mad:

  23. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    Hi Trader,

    Girardi said that the top candidate to start was Phelps, but who knows?…A bunt!! on the first inning, i sure hope it was a personal thing

  24. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    YT, that is the rumor but I haven’t seen anything definitive.

  25. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    Jack, agree. Rather Grandy swing away.

  26. Vince April 29th, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    Looks like he was bunting for a hit. A little weird on a 1-1 count but runner in scoring position is the positive.

  27. tucker April 29th, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    Yeah, don’t agree with the bunt unless you push it toward Cabrera.

  28. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    Close

  29. Phranchise April 29th, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    bunting either is silly on Granderson’s part of Girardi already overmanaging in the first inning

  30. Yankee Trader April 29th, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    Luis-

    See any leprechauns? Pedroia?

  31. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    Patient AB, Robi.

  32. TheStraw April 29th, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    Time for Cano to get right.

  33. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    Cano wait for your pitch

  34. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:25 pm

    This UMP would have helped Nova with that low strike zone

  35. superSwishion April 29th, 2012 at 1:25 pm

  36. LGY April 29th, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    Always want to see your best HR guy bunt against a struggling pitcher.

  37. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    OK, Teix, let’s see what you have learned.

  38. Boston Jim April 29th, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    Pop up to 2b here

  39. superSwishion April 29th, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    Why did versonine get banned yesterday? I dont remember saying anything inappropriate.

  40. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    Arrgh!

  41. Yankee Trader April 29th, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    Ugh-Teex

  42. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    Yankee Trader April 29th, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    Luis-

    See any leprechauns? Pedroia?

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

    Not PEDroia himself, but a lot of his cousins that looked like him offering me some weird milkshakes!! :D

  43. Vince April 29th, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    Scherzer is one of those guys who you hate as a Yankees’ fan. Boston destroyed him almost every time and he seems to skate on by vs New York.

  44. superSwishion April 29th, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    SJ44 says that Tex simply cant bat LH anymore.

  45. jacksquat April 29th, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    Apparently not yet learned to not try to pull the pitch off the outside of the plate.

  46. TheStraw April 29th, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    RISP fail.

  47. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    I was trying to be positive, but SMH.

  48. TheStraw April 29th, 2012 at 1:30 pm

    At least mutant eyes threw a lot of pitches.

  49. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 29th, 2012 at 1:30 pm

    “Why did versonine get banned yesterday? I dont remember saying anything inappropriate.”

    No idea.

  50. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:30 pm

    Situational hitting, especially against right hand pitchers needs to improve….Bunting on the first inning??

  51. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:26 pm
    OK, Teix, let’s see what you have learned.
    ///

    learned that he still can’t resist trying to pull that changeup :(

  52. tucker April 29th, 2012 at 1:32 pm

    That inning went wrong with the bunt. Don’t give away an out to a pitcher who is missing the strike zone.

  53. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:32 pm

    He called that one a strike for Sherzer

  54. JobaTipsHisCap April 29th, 2012 at 1:32 pm

    Texas rangers and kemp will be cool down.
    100% sure.

  55. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:33 pm

    That one too

  56. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:33 pm

    Filthy pitch.

  57. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 29th, 2012 at 1:34 pm

    In 2011, Curtis Granderson went 1 for Scherzer and struck out 3 times.

    Do you think perhaps he knew what he was doing trying to play small ball?

    I do.

  58. Yankee Trader April 29th, 2012 at 1:34 pm

    Scherzer had a 5.23 ERA away from home last year, and a 4.15 ERA vs the Yankees[ 6 runs in 13 innings]

  59. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 29th, 2012 at 1:34 pm

    In 2011, Curtis Granderson went 1 for 7 against Scherzer and struck out 3 times.

    Do you think perhaps he knew what he was doing trying to play small ball?

    I do.

  60. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 1:34 pm

    C getting swings on that slider :D

    You can see why he’s got nearly 10K per nine so far this year.

  61. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:34 pm

    The slider is filthy today!

  62. superSwishion April 29th, 2012 at 1:34 pm

    Well, didnt you guys know that Scherzer has a history of success while CC is just a scrub. Of course Scherzer will get calls.

  63. Vince April 29th, 2012 at 1:34 pm

    I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility for Matt Kemp, if he stays healthy, to put up a .340 40/120/40 season. The question is, with no Pujols or Fielder, and with Stanton in Florida, is that enough to win the triple crown?

  64. superSwishion April 29th, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    I cant stand the cheaters that play the Hanging (Hangman) with Friends App. I got the word “azotemic” dropped on me yesterday! Cheap crap.

  65. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    Nice change C! 4 K

  66. Yankee Trader April 29th, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    Beautiful pitch.

  67. UnKnown April 29th, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    Love how he is throwing off speed 3-2 pitches for strikes.

  68. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:37 pm

    4 k’s JAP in two innings!!

  69. jacksquat April 29th, 2012 at 1:37 pm

    trisha – true pinstriped blue April 29th, 2012 at 1:34 pm
    In 2011, Curtis Granderson went 1 for 7 against Scherzer and struck out 3 times.

    Do you think perhaps he knew what he was doing trying to play small ball?

    I do.

    I’m more inclined to think Girardi made the mistake of going by the tiny sample size – which he often does – and not Granderson.

  70. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 1:38 pm

    Too bad we didn’t show more patience with Scherzer and his control issues.

  71. Vince April 29th, 2012 at 1:38 pm

    Trisha,

    I believe it was Granderson’s call.

  72. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:38 pm

    Beauty of a change. C, liking the warmer weather. :)

  73. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:39 pm

    JS,

    That why i was hoping that it was a personal thing. If it was Girardi, that’s bad baseball.

  74. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:39 pm

    SSS, Grandy should have been patient and waited for his pitch or walked. Scherzer showing no command. We need to have more patient AB’s.

  75. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 1:40 pm

    October baseball in April

  76. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    Swish tried to pull that pitch

  77. Bo knows April 29th, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    Yankee nemesis – the almighty changeup.

  78. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 1:38 pm

    Too bad we didn’t show more patience with Scherzer and his control issues.

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

    Yup :(

  79. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 29th, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    “Trisha,

    I believe it was Granderson’s call.”

    I think so too.

    J Al – thanks for the advice on the previous thread. I had never drawn a reaction before and I’ve been taking it over a year, but then I saw what YF said about building up an immunity. I am going to stay off it for the next 4-5 days and see if things improve.

  80. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 1:42 pm

    That’s the way to do it; guy not locating.

  81. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    Bo knows April 29th, 2012 at 1:41 pm
    Yankee nemesis – the almighty changeup.
    ////

    that would be a yes.

  82. Vince April 29th, 2012 at 1:44 pm

    Here? Here I would bunt.

  83. Phranchise April 29th, 2012 at 1:44 pm

    Now this should be a bunt

  84. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    There we go.

    Trisha, you can also try putting 1/2 apple cider vinegar with 1/2 water and applying it to itchy areas.

  85. Phranchise April 29th, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    Yikes so much for that. Poor offensive hitter, Jeter up next, now he chooses not to manage?

  86. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 1:46 pm

    trisha,

    good idea. You might drink some aloe vera (make sure organic) for the itches, so long as you are not allergic to that. Some are, but it’s soothing for inflammation.

  87. Phranchise April 29th, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    wasted at bat. How do you not bunt?

  88. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 29th, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    YF – I have to go out in a while so I don’t think the vinegar would be such a good idea since the itchy areas are extensive. :)

    I bought the otther stuff though so I’m going to do that as soon as I’m back.

    Thanks.

  89. Nick in SF April 29th, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    “yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:14 pm
    Sorry I am not at the game, but my bro has the tix…”

    You don’t have a ticket plan, do you?

  90. Phranchise April 29th, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    opps, forgot there was one out.

  91. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    Nick, yes, why?

  92. superSwishion April 29th, 2012 at 1:49 pm

    Come on Jeter, get CC some runs.

  93. Vince April 29th, 2012 at 1:49 pm

    haha that pitch was right down the middle.

  94. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    Yes! We’ll take it.

  95. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 29th, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    J Al – I’ve drunk (that always sounds strange to me) aloe vera before so I think I’d be good to go with that. Heck at this point I’m willing to try anything!

  96. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    Trisha,

    Didn’t know about the alergies. Hope you get well soon. Good play from Santiago, it saved a run. Another bunt? ;)

  97. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    Grandy, don’t let him off the hook this time, please

  98. UnKnown April 29th, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    Brian Anderson, “And Jeter the King of the infield hit.”

    Oh how I have missed TBS announcers. Geez

  99. JobaTipsHisCap April 29th, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    Small strike zone

    Lol

  100. Nick in SF April 29th, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    yankeefem, don’t want to make a dumb joke with bases loaded — this time.

  101. UnKnown April 29th, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    Sit fastball here 2-1 grandy

  102. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    Trisha,

    I had an allergic attack three weeks ago. You better go and see a Doctor.

  103. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 29th, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    As long as the umpiring is fair to both sides then I’m good to go. I don’t want Scherzer to be jammed if CC isn’t. Of course I don’t want either to be jammed.

  104. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    Trisha, I also mentioned aloe in previous thread. Try George’s aloe then if you are going to drink it. No flavor, tastes like water. Whole Foods probably sells it. (Or is it still called Bread and Circus in Providence. I haven’t been up there for a while, unfortunately.)

  105. JobaTipsHisCap April 29th, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    Lol

  106. superSwishion April 29th, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    Wow, whaddaya know. A fair 3-2 call with the bases loaded.

  107. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    1-0 Yanks!!! & 52 pitches.

  108. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    Not what i liked, but i’ll take it

  109. UnKnown April 29th, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    GS here Al and its game

  110. TheStraw April 29th, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    Time for an Abomb.

  111. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    Well done, Grandy! Scherzer up to 52 pitches :D

  112. JobaTipsHisCap April 29th, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    GS by arod

  113. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    Nick, tell me later; we need runs here.

  114. TheStraw April 29th, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    Or that.

  115. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    Lady Luck is on our side!

  116. hardwired7 April 29th, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    It stinks that you can’t get Pitch F/X data from Brooksbaseball until after the game is over.

    Does anyone of a comparable site w/at-bat to at-bat info available in real time?

  117. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    This is small ball!! LOL!!

  118. jacksquat April 29th, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    That’s right, bunt to Cabrera. :D

  119. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    YEah! MIGGY!

  120. Nick in SF April 29th, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    Another ribbie for the Yankee slugger, woo hooo!!!

  121. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    Luis, small ball by default?

  122. tomingeorgia April 29th, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    Whatta you know? RBI base hit!

  123. jacksquat April 29th, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    MLB.tv has the pitch f/x. Looked like Scherzer got squeezed on at least one strike to both Jeter and Granderson.

  124. UnKnown April 29th, 2012 at 1:57 pm

    Beckett would’ve already laid down on the mound and threw a fit if he was pitching today and not getting those calls.

  125. JobaTipsHisCap April 29th, 2012 at 1:57 pm

    Cano is eager to get out

    Well done

  126. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:57 pm

    yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    Luis, small ball by default?

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

    :D or so it seems!!

    “Unintentional Bunt”

  128. Yankee Trader April 29th, 2012 at 1:57 pm

    trisha, you may have done already, but I’d check with naturopath for candida. Also you may want to look up “pitta” body type, or just read about the 3 doshas and see if there’s something there that could help you be proactive.

  130. TheStraw April 29th, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    Cano looks off balance at the plate. He has cost us a lot of runs this young season.

  131. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 29th, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    YF, I may have missed the aloe part. Whole Foods will definitely have it.

    luis, this is the same thing I had in Florida, right after you had your allergic reaction. It had gone away but came back. The reason I don’t want to go to a doctor is that they’re not going to be able to tell me what’s causing it. I think I just have to start with elimination of the curcumin and if that doesn’t work I’ll eliminate the other supplements I take one at a time.

    Very frustrating in the meantime.

  132. luis April 29th, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    Cano is getting frustrated and is pushing a little bit as a result.

  133. JobaTipsHisCap April 29th, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    He is an automatic out right now.

    Trisha,

    I know it is, especially when you don’t know what’s causing it. I was really scared at some point, i was afraid of eating. it turned out to be something not related to food but until they found out i was having constant allergic reactions.

  141. Bo knows April 29th, 2012 at 2:02 pm

    The thing that bothers me about Cano’s at bats is that he’s overswinging. I don’t remember him doing that in like forever.

    That’s why I like his swing so much. But now, he’s not even setting into the swing slot. Really bothersome.

    Lazily making the cut to balls batted to leftfield that could have prevented the runner to reach to second. The runner didn’t score, but nevertheless i like hustling players. Then not throwing the balls he catches to the kids in the park.

  191. Stoneburner April 29th, 2012 at 2:27 pm

    News: Montero, who has caught five games this season, is not being considered for everyday duty behind the plate, the Seattle Times reports. (Thu Apr 26)

    Spin: Miguel Olivo’s struggles have led to speculation that Montero might displace him as the everyday catcher. But manager Eric Wedge shot that down. “[Montero] has a hell of a lot of work ahead of him to get to that point,” Wedge said “He isn’t ready for that.” Montero has improved since spring training (he appears to no longer flinch when the batter swings), but his footwork, release and game-managing skills need much work. Still, if Olivo continues to struggle, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Montero and John Jaso get more catching work even if it’s not everyday duty.

    Remember – to be a generational player – which has been guaranteed – you must play a position on the field. . . . .

    Yeah, left-handed, Swish can fall into bad habits. I’m very happy with the BA, but wonder if he can really stay up there. He’ll hit for some power and take his BBs, but the average I just can’t say I fully believe in LH. May it continue… Tex left handed has made some adjustments but then you see what that changeup does to him

    GRANDY!

    Go to Mariners website and click on stats. Then click on Montero. They should still have his HR to center and his oppo RBI single from two games ago up.

    It might just be Jesus though experimenting. He likes to fool around with his stance. The swing is still staying in the zone and level, from what I saw, and that’s just my own speculation on why they might want him slightly less closed.

    I played hooky from work to go to the Griffey game. There were news cameras all over the place outside, and there I was, in suit and tie. After the catch, the game was a big story, and there I was on Channel 7 News. Thought I’d get fired, but that catch would have made it almost worth it.

    Griffey ran back and with a running leap dug his cleats into the padding and went straight up. Caught the ball at least four feet above the wall, which, IIRC, was twelve feet tall. Greatest catch I ever saw, live or on TV.

  253. Captain Clutch April 29th, 2012 at 2:55 pm

    This is Granderson’s chance to break the game open a little bit. They have left too many guys on base so far.

    JAP,
    I played hooky from work to go to the Griffey game. There were news cameras all over the place outside, and there I was, in suit and tie. After the catch, the game was a big story, and there I was on Channel 7 News. Thought I’d get fired, but that catch would have made it almost worth it.

    Griffey ran back and with a running leap dug his cleats into the padding and went straight up. Caught the ball at least four feet above the wall, which, IIRC, was twelve feet tall. Greatest catch I ever saw, live or on TV.
    //

    LOL. Great story.

    I used to skip school as a kid when you had to sleep out and wait on line for playoff tix. Was always leery of the TV cameras that would come round to ask you “how long have YOU been here?”

    Definitely the greatest catch I ever saw, too. Just the sheer gravity-defying athleticism of that play…the fumes stay with you, even now….
    ///

    Bo Knows, for me it’s Gary Pettis and Paul Blair for perfection. Andruw Jones going back on a ball from a shallow position was, though, probably the most ridiculous combination of pure speed, jump and tracking I ever saw in anyone on a consistent basis. I’ve never seen anything like in-prime Jones in center, in that regard.

  262. TheStraw April 29th, 2012 at 2:59 pm

    Sorry but you can’t blame CC in this one. I mean you could if you’re a miserable human being and piss & moan at everything. But CC has given up 2 runs in 6 against a very good hitting team. If you want to blame anything, blame the offense, they’ve left a ton of guys on base and should have 5-6 runs right now.

  283. rr212 April 29th, 2012 at 3:10 pm

    that is a good point JAP, however, 7 walks and 7 hits w/ only 3 runs to show for it is frustrating. hopefully they can break it open or tack a few more on here.

    Look, it’s a certain kind of offense. If you’ve read anything I posted here after Jan. 13, you’ll know I understand your point very well. But they weren’t facing mid-to-back rotation slop and did make Scherzer throw a lot of pitches. I’ll take them knocking Scherzer out in the fifth and C keeping our edge while we try to increase it. To me, that’s a moral victory and hopefully a W, too.

    I’m a big fan of Ibanez’s approach at the plate. He’s patient and he doesn’t seem to let anything get to him. It’s like he erases a bad call or a missed opportunity and comes at everything anew with each pitch.

    Not a bad platoon player. Not a bad regular player, either. I don’t think he has proven himself yet, but he could threaten Brett Gardner’s job if he gets hot over the next week.

  322. UnKnown April 29th, 2012 at 3:25 pm

    “Another epic fail. Yanks are deadly bad with RISP.”

    Why should this surprise anyone? It’s essentially the same lineup that’s been choking with RISP for the past two seasons. They keep running the same guys out there, you’re going to see the same results. If they hit enough solo homers, they win. If not, they’re in trouble. It’s that simple.

    Ibanez is not threatening Gardner’s or anyone else’s job. He’s in the outfield only because Gardner is on the disabled list and the Yanks need to DH A-Rod as much as possible so he’s as fresh as possible for the entire season. Ibanez will go back to being the primary DH when Gardner returns to LF.

    As our pal Bartolo Colon goes for the shutout in Baltimore (I am on Team Bartolo this season), we learn that the A’s have pitched 4 shutouts this season and have also been shut out 4 times, meaning they have been part of 8 of the 19 MLB shutouts so far this season.

    Something really really special is going on now on the South Side of Chicago. Must be the Pete Abe curse

  401. Nick in SF April 29th, 2012 at 3:58 pm

    Do the White Sox play with Phillies’ uniforms often?

  402. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 3:59 pm

    Miggy was gearing for that, lol

  403. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 3:59 pm

  405. Nick in SF April 29th, 2012 at 4:03 pm

    Ugh, ND for Bartolo and the game is in deep doubt for the A’s as well. :cry:

  406. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 4:04 pm

  407. Rich in NJ April 29th, 2012 at 4:05 pm

    Sheffieldian.

  408. tomingeorgia April 29th, 2012 at 4:05 pm

    Andruuw. Ok, you can play a little.

  409. Bo knows April 29th, 2012 at 4:08 pm

    Have you been served sir? Andruw, FB middle in down the heart. What are the chances?

  410. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 4:08 pm

    O’Neill has been excellent/thoughtful today.

  411. muwarriorsfan April 29th, 2012 at 4:08 pm

    Cashman should be fired for the Garcia over Colon decision alone.

  412. Nick in SF April 29th, 2012 at 4:09 pm

    Wilson Betemit hits a walkoff homer for the Orioles as Nick Swisher looks to have his leg amputated.

    Another move gone awry, Mr. Cashman. :mad:

  413. Rich in NJ April 29th, 2012 at 4:10 pm

    Kay’s fair/foul perception is beyond awful.

    That said, too bad.

  414. tomingeorgia April 29th, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    JAP,
    Agree on O’Neill today. Insightful and amusing.

  415. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 4:13 pm

    tom,

    Not that I mind his usual giddiness, but today he’s on his game.

  416. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 4:13 pm

    Belated DRRRRRRRRRuuuuuuuuuuuUUW.

    ‘Mon, DRob.

  417. Rich in NJ April 29th, 2012 at 4:14 pm

    Fielder really hustled down the line.

  418. Rich in NJ April 29th, 2012 at 4:14 pm

    O’Neill read my post!

  419. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 4:15 pm

    Nasty!

  420. Rich in NJ April 29th, 2012 at 4:15 pm

    He would have made a great Yankee…

  421. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 4:15 pm

    DRob’s crazy good.

  422. tomingeorgia April 29th, 2012 at 4:15 pm

    Good morning, good afternoon, good night!

  423. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 4:16 pm

    I like Fielder. I respect his vegetarianism, too.

  424. igotid88 April 29th, 2012 at 4:16 pm

    Has he thrown 96 before?

  425. Rich in NJ April 29th, 2012 at 4:19 pm

    The heir apparent.

  426. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 4:19 pm

    We win.

  427. Stoneburner April 29th, 2012 at 4:20 pm

    Not one word about Marshall’s game in Trenton today from the fake fan boys – typical – they play their elitist favoritism – waxing poetics about and regurgitate what they read on other sites as their own analysis. . .

  428. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 4:20 pm

    Nice win! C!!!!

  429. yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 4:21 pm

    igotid, yes.

  430. J. Alfred Prufrock April 29th, 2012 at 4:27 pm

    Of course they want to be just like him.

  431. comet April 29th, 2012 at 4:30 pm

    JAP I’m from Southern Ontario. Do you have a Canadian connection?

  432. igotid88 April 29th, 2012 at 4:33 pm

    yankeefeminista April 29th, 2012 at 4:21 pm
