Soriano has a blister

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jun 11, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Rafael Soriano was not available tonight because of a blister on his right index finger.

Soriano played catch, threw in the bullpen and told the Yankees that he could pitch, but Joe Girardi decided to give him a day.

Girardi expects Soriano to be available tomorrow.

    Good night Yankee fans

    is anyone shocked that nova is 8-2 now?

  3. Ys Guy June 11th, 2012 at 10:42 pm

    girardi was great with the bp before rothschild showed up.

    Braves have scored more runs this year than the Yankees

  5. Yogi Mantle June 11th, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    Tonight the Kings will be crowned.

    @pabe: Josh Johnson came in with a era. The ‘we’re facing good pitching’ excuse is a flimsy one”

    check it out pete, j. johnson the last 30 days: 3.03 era 1.26 whip. but you’re right, the socks do suck…

  7. Ys Guy June 11th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    sorry that was “josh Johnson came in with a 4.56 era…

    Nova is a funny guy.

  9. Ys Guy June 11th, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    didnt look like swisher stole a HR to me. nice catch but not out of the park

    Braves have scored more runs this year than the Yankees

    Not by much, they have also allowed more runs by a good margin.

  11. Yogi Mantle June 11th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Y’s Guy, I didn’t think so either, but it was still a nice catch.

  12. Pat M. June 11th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Rich in NJ……..What’s your take on the Soler deal ????? I think The Cubs made a great move…….It’ll be interesting to see how Epstein builds his club…

  13. Nick in SF June 11th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    Sori got a boo blister?

  14. Ys Guy June 11th, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    bad couple of weeks for the haters. they got riled up with the 2 losses at anaheim, but they are all pretty scarce these days…

    Madden is the top skipper in the game

    I think the situation in Tampa plays into his hands. Can you imagine him doing those perambulations in NYC if it didn’t work once or twice? The media and fans would eat him alive.

    Girardi did a great job last year and again this year with all the injuries and slow starts. How many fans does he have?

    He’s next door to eating helpless animals and all around no goodnick. Ain’t you heard?

    socks trolls have crawled back under their rocks….

    I have been really busy with work today, so I haven’t read anything other than the headlines, but the AAV doesn’t seem bad. The Yankees have no problem setting money on fire for guys like AJ, who carries a great deal of risk. So given the constraints on spending in the amateur draft and with IFA, I thought this was one last time to use their financial advantage. If they were willing to go $20+m, what’s another few million.

    GB…….What impressive to me is not just the roll their on, it’s also who they’ve played….Some very good clubs…..It actually started when Hughes beat The Royal in late May at The Stadium…..The club was in a funk in mid May and needed a solid start and Hughes gave it to them……..It’s been a nice roll ever since and they should have won that Monday night game in Anaheim


    Pat, Hughes has started two runs over the last few weeks. I’m curious to see how he deals with LaRoche, Harper and Morse is DC. He’s been as anybody in the rotation the last couple of times out…the last 7 starts, actually (except for the angels game).

  19. GreenBeret7 June 11th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    Mike Trout is in a deep slump. He’s 0-2. Struck while fishing, swallowed a sinker.

  20. Bo knows June 11th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    girardi was great with the bp before rothschild showed up.

    Agreed, but the development of Robertson, Logan and Nova, even Hughes is right there before us, as we speak.

    Rothschield’s claim to fame is that he is a technician.

    Maybe it’s a boo boo blister…

    Nick — you’d appreciate this — the gov just cancelled school and gov offices due to the incredibly heavy rain we’ve been experiencing for the last 12 hours. Most businesses are letting folks go home at noon. It’s not a typhoon, but the flooding is out of control. Of course, I live in Taipei and it’s just fine.

    I wish I’d known earlier (they announced closures at 10:30am) and I would have slept in.

  23. Nick in SF June 11th, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    Wang, I didn’t know about the rain.

    I took some pretty wild pictures of the damage in Taichung and up in the mountains back in the typhoon of October 2007. If you’re interested in checking them out, get in touch with me via Chad.

    WHOA!!! Trout just hooked him a sucker. That kid has some kind of fast hands. Still trying to place him as a hitter and all around player. Not sure if he’ll ever have the power of a young Andre Dawson, but, for me, he’s close.

  25. Pat M. June 11th, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    Mike Trout is just an amazing young talent………Rich in NJ, frankly I thought The Yanks would have signed at least one of the two….They will never be in position to draft this type of talent, and yes the cost is much higher than the conventional signings of drafted players…….However for 50 million you get two outfielders that have huge upside….And as you and several others here have pointed out this is the last bite at the apple for the free spenders……..I feel there is definitely a new sheriff in town and his name is Hal

  26. Pat M. June 11th, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    GB…..I know is sacrilidge, but his skill set is being compared to Mantle and to a lesser degree Mays…….Now Mike Trout is what a generational talent looks like !!!!!

  27. GreenBeret7 June 11th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    I think they plan to ride the horse that brought ‘em to town and get below the penalty mark and then go out and buy what they need in 2016.

  28. GreenBeret7 June 11th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    Pat, I don’t see that 500 homer type power, but, was mainly looking at the speed of the hands and the way he runs and plays the outfield. he just glides through the outfield and eats up ground very fast..

  29. GreenBeret7 June 11th, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    At first, I thought Garry Maddux, but, he’s a solid 30 homer type, the more I see him.

  30. GreenBeret7 June 11th, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    The guy on the Angels that surprises me the most is Trumbo. Not the power because I saw that last year. He’s faster than I thought and his play in the outfield is pretty good. Maybe not a Gold Glover, but, pretty close to being at least as good as Swisher.

  31. Pat M. June 12th, 2012 at 12:01 am

    GB……Trumbo worked on his agility during the offseason but when The Angels signed Albert they tried to force 3rd base on him, not a real good fit…..His outfield is much improved as you pointed out when compared to last season……

  32. Locke June 12th, 2012 at 12:09 am

    Great game tonight.

    Over the past 18 games the Yankees are 14-4. During that stretch our starters have a combined record of 13-2! That is a phenomenal job by our starting pitching.

    I’m going driving up from FL to GA tomorrow to catch the next two in Atlanta. Can’t wait.

  33. Rich in NJ June 12th, 2012 at 12:14 am


    It’s just a guess, but it could be that Hal has to placate three siblings who each may want increasing income from their ownership stake, which may leave less to invest. If so, too bad they fail to understand that the more they investment, the more they will make in the future.

    That’s why the reports of a potential sale ring true to me. Maybe it’s bs, or maybe it’s just about the timeframe, and therefore, maximizing the return and planning for the tax consequences.

  34. Pat M. June 12th, 2012 at 12:17 am

    Rich in NJ….I think the club gets sold before the decade if not sooner….

    Due to the high demand for land, it is the best investment idea in the current market.
