LHP Jose Quintana (2-1, 1.25)
Quintana has never faced any current Yankees

TIME/TV: 7:05 p.m., YES Network and MLB Network

WEATHER: Same as last night: hot and humid. Someone bring me a fan.

UMPIRES: HP Tim Timmons, 1B Jeff Kellogg, 2B Eric Cooper, 3B Marty Foster

WARREN DEBUTS: The 24-year-old Warren will make his MLB debut tonight, becoming the first Yankees pitcher to do so as a starter since Ian Kennedy on September 1, 2007 against the Rays.

RARE HOMER: The home run allowed to Viciedo last night was the first go-ahead home run allowed by a Yankees pitcher in the ninth inning with the Yankees leading since Ichiro hit one off Mariano Rivera on September 18, 2009.

HELLO CAL: With his seventh inning single last night, Jeter tied Cal Ripken Jr. for 13th place on the all-time hits list with 3,184. Jeter is currently tied for the AL lead with 96 hits on the season.

(Note: I’ll be updating the action here every so often, but I’ll be much more active on Twitter. To join the conversation, follow me @vzmercogliano.)

UPDATE, 7:31 p.m.: The Yankees couldn’t really ask for a better start. Two walks with two outs forced Warren to throw 25 pitches in the first, but he did not allow a run or a hit. In the bottom half of the inning, the Yankees exploded for four runs. Jeter led off with a double down the LF line, passing Cal Ripken Jr. for 13th on the all-time hits list with 3,185. That was followed by a two-run homer from Granderson (his 22nd of the season), and later a two-out, two-run double from Jones.

UPDATE, 7:46 p.m.: Just like that, the White Sox have tied things up. Warren doesn’t look like he’s fooling anyone, as four straight hits to begin the second inning resulted in four runs. Pierzynski hit a solo homer, Beckham added a two-run double, eventually scoring on Youkilis’ RBI groundout. Both Joe Girardi and Brian Cashman admitted that Warren doesn’t have great pure stuff, and it’s showing. His location hasn’t been terrible, but he looks awful hittable. We’re tied at 4-4 halfway through the second.

UPDATE, 8:08 p.m.: Warren is done after 2 1/3 innings. The White Sox were all over him, pounding out eight hits and six runs while making the rookie throw 77 pitches. David Phelps has come into replace him, and I expect to see him be stretched out a bit. He threw 50 pitches in his most recent minor league outing, and Girardi said they’ll let him go for 65-70 if necessary. If he pitches well, I’d expect him to get the start instead of Warren the next time through the rotation.

UPDATE, 8:41 p.m.: The Yankees have rallied back to tie the game at 6-6 thanks to a two-run single from Nix in the bottom of the fourth. Swisher walked and Jones hit his second double leading up to Nix’s big hit.

UPDATE, 8:49 p.m.: Phelps surrenders a solo homer to Pierzynski to leadoff the fifth and give Chicago a 7-6 lead.

UPDATE, 9:14 p.m.: David Phelps is done with two outs in the sixth after giving up an RBI single to Rios, which extended the White Sox lead to 8-6. Phelps seemed to lose a little steam at the end, but he was much better than Warren. He threw 64 pitches.

UPDATE, 9:33 p.m.: Alexei Ramirez just hit a two-run shot off of Cory Wade, and the White Sox have opened this one up a bit. They lead 10-6 in the seventh.

  3. Jerkface June 29th, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    Luis 500 ft HRs weren’t the norm back then either:

  4. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    Looking forward to this kid.

  5. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    Go Warren Go Yankees!!

  6. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:06 pm

    Thanks JF…Good tool to give you perspective

  7. BD (Boston Dave) June 29th, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    doesn’t seem like Quintana is going to throw a ton of pitches, no matter how patient you are. Hope the Yanks wait for a good pitch, even if it’s the first pitch, and hammer it.

  8. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    Go Adam! Go Yanks!

  9. tomingeorgia June 29th, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    Let’s go, boys, and good luck, kid!

  10. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    Keep the fb down/ Trust your stuff!

  11. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    Hey YF!! Long time no see in a game thread!!

  12. Shame Spencer June 29th, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    Those were some nasty pitches… nicely done.

  13. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    I was away from the TV for a minute, and at a distance, it sounded like idiot Michael Kay said Phelps looks like he’s Asian??? Did he?

    Nice strikeout.

  14. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    Atta boy, nice pitch.

  15. Benny Blanco June 29th, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    pure confidence that first batter.

  16. tomingeorgia June 29th, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    Nice beginning.

  17. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    1st batter…1st MLB k!!

    Nick,

    it must have been frustrating in deed!! Especially with that ugly mustache he was using not so long ago ;)

  18. xcv June 29th, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    it’ll be interesting to see how girardi @#$% this one up tonight

  19. Benny Blanco June 29th, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    This kid’s body language is impressive. He might be nervous but he’s not showing it.

  20. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    wow. We got a popup in foul territory to stay in play.

  21. blake June 29th, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    really nice 2-0 CU there

  22. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    Good CU

  23. djsunyc June 29th, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    that changeup and the following fastball was pretty impressive to dunn…

  24. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    That was a really good pitch for ball 4. Close to the zone.

  25. Benny Blanco June 29th, 2012 at 7:15 pm

    why does Kay sound so shocked when a yankee pitcher throws above 92 MPH? LOL

  26. Shame Spencer June 29th, 2012 at 7:15 pm

    Inside. I know it’s early, but the kid’s off speed stuff looks pretty good so far.. the movement is definitely there.

  27. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:15 pm

    He has a serviceable CB as well

  28. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:16 pm

    Don’t nibble Adam, go after them

  29. Nick in SF June 29th, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Exhale.

  30. Shame Spencer June 29th, 2012 at 7:18 pm

    At least we’re putting those empty legends seats to good use :)

  31. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:18 pm

    Atta boy!! Good first inning

  32. blake June 29th, 2012 at 7:18 pm

    nice 1st big league inning…

  33. rm June 29th, 2012 at 7:18 pm

    nice first inning for tge kid

  34. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 7:18 pm

    Good job.

  35. tomingeorgia June 29th, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    trolls at it early tonight, On to our turn. Let’s get’em early.

  36. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    Go Jeet!

  37. Yankee Trader June 29th, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    Good for him. Didn’t let the strike 3 he had on Dunn, but didn’t get, bother him.

    Now Yankees give him a big cushion.

  38. rm June 29th, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    lets score 5 or 6 so the kid can relax

  39. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    So this guy is good. Didnt he used to be a part of our system?

  40. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    I don’t know about you guys…But for me, the thing a like the most is watching the kids making it to the Big leagues…

  41. jackamir June 29th, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    Okay, Warren got through the 1st inning, lets put up a crooked number.

  42. blake June 29th, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    Derek Jeter….death to LHP

  43. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    Atta boy, Jeet!!

  44. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    El Capitan!!

  45. rm June 29th, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    Jeter ground one past Youkillis. I love the sound of those words

  46. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    luis, yep. Sorry to see Abe with the hamstring injury. Thought he might get a look at some point.

  47. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    YEAH!!!!!

  48. rm June 29th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    so much for that scoreless inning streak

  49. Benny Blanco June 29th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    there goes the streak. Yankees are streak killers..

  50. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    Grandy!

  51. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    A YS especial!! Grandy thought he didn’t hit it well enough!! Go Grandy!!

  52. Benny Blanco June 29th, 2012 at 7:23 pm

    btw, thats RISP….1-1

  53. tomingeorgia June 29th, 2012 at 7:23 pm

    That’s kind of like I like to see in the 1st.

  54. jacksquat June 29th, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    So much for that home run rate.

  55. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    YF,

    Yup :( I read about it…I think it will depend on the extent of the injury…He was having a nice season

  56. There Will Never Be Another Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    Yanks need to Johan Santana on this kid.

  57. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    Why are you apologizing to the White Sox pitcher? Youre a New York Yankee Paul.

  58. There Will Never Be Another Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    to go

  59. Nick in SF June 29th, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    Was there a point to Paulie’s mention of Instagram?

  60. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    Tough luck there he scorched that one

  61. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    Luis, “sore” can mean anything; hopefully, it isn’t too bad, but a hamstring injury always scares me.

  62. theREALkevin June 29th, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    Havent heard the YES guys mention one time so far that Quintana was in the Yankees organization up until this year. Kinda weak

  63. LGY June 29th, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    A little late to the party but, WARREN

  64. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    What BABIP takenth, BABIP giveth!!

  65. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    Reverse jinx on Jones works… even if the pitch was up.

  66. syd_cash June 29th, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    bam gave the newbie some runs!

  67. Nick in SF June 29th, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    Smile and the world smiles with you.

  68. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    Blake….Jones Sucks!!!!!…Good call, reversed jinx!!

  69. rm June 29th, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    2-2 with risp

  70. theREALkevin June 29th, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    Jones!!

  71. tomingeorgia June 29th, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    blake,
    WE’RE DOOMED!

  72. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    RealKev, Quintana is too obscure for their mainstream media notes

  73. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    Kevin, so Quintana was in the Yankees org? Wow. Joe needs to just stick with Andruw against only LHP.

  74. blake June 29th, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    I worked my reverse jinx magic on Jonesy earlier today……you’re welcome :)

  75. blake June 29th, 2012 at 7:32 pm

    Jonesy sucks!

  76. astrocityfan June 29th, 2012 at 7:32 pm

    Blake
    I’m buying a lottery ticket tonight, can you reverse jinx me like you did Jones ????

  77. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    YF,

    Yup..If it is a grade 1, he will be back in two weeks..If it is something more, it is months.

    Kevin,

    Really? didn’t know he was in our system.

    Good inning…4-0 Nice and comfy lead…Keep it right there Adam!!

  78. Yankee Trader June 29th, 2012 at 7:34 pm

    Quintana was not put on 40 man by Yankees and was signed as a FA by WS.

    Another stat that blew up tonight-he was allowing 0.5 homers/game

  79. tomingeorgia June 29th, 2012 at 7:35 pm

    astro,
    You haven’t a chance in the world, loser.

  80. theREALkevin June 29th, 2012 at 7:36 pm

    Yankeefem,

    Guess so. Can’t believe that fact didn’t make their little scouting report or w/e. Kinda pitiful IMO. U’d think someone woulda told them at least.

    Mo mo,

    Ya he spent 1 season with mets, 4 with us.

  81. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2012 at 7:36 pm

    a 15-0 lead is comfortable. a 4-1 lead isn’t.

  82. astrocityfan June 29th, 2012 at 7:36 pm

    Thanks Tom ! Much appreciated :)

  83. There Will Never Be Another Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:37 pm

    Danger. . . danger. . .danger

  84. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:37 pm

    Bear down Warren

  85. Nick in SF June 29th, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    “If you can swing the bat, they’ll find a position for you to play.”

    Lou, we need to talk. :neutral:

  86. theREALkevin June 29th, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    Luis,

    Yes he was. They let him walk after last season. He had good results but I guess they weren’t sold. His FB is pretty straight from what I see, ok velo, prob needs to be pretty accurate to be good. Havent really seen offspeed tonight so can’t comment on that. He’s still young, 23

  87. tomingeorgia June 29th, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    astro,
    Send me 10%, if you please.

  88. Villa Nova-Ya June 29th, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Shoot.

  89. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    OUr lead is as good as gone. Come back soon CC

  90. There Will Never Be Another Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    But we have all this pitching depth. . . .

  91. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    GB,

    Yup, spoke too soon

  92. Yankee Trader June 29th, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    Looks like we’ll be seeing Phelps. When did he pitch last?

  93. Niblick June 29th, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    This kid really stinks.

  94. njsketch June 29th, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    this is why securing last night’s win was important

  95. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    Phelps was supposed to start today for Tampa, so I’d guess it is his 5th day.

  96. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    He is making his debut…Do you really expect him to perform from the get go?…Those are impossibly lofty expectations

  97. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    Check that, 4th day. Phelps pitched on the 25th.

  98. There Will Never Be Another Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    Hey, welcome to New York and the big leagues kid. . . .

  99. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    Stewart needs practice catching foul tips. Time to drag out the foul tpmachine, girardi.

  100. rm June 29th, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    I’m hoping the kid can gets into the 5th inning with a lead

  101. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    foul ***tip machine***, girardi.

  102. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    At this pace he will be lucky to get to the 4th

  103. There Will Never Be Another Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    rm June 29th, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    I think he is out in the fourth – Phelps will come in.

    Just a bad inning after your team spots you four.

  104. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    53 pitches

  105. Niblick June 29th, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    As the Boss used to say: he spit the bit.

    Big time.

  106. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    There you go.

  107. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    The Red Sox just use anyone and everyone and they succeed. Prime example, Franklin Morales is successful for them. A loser nothing nobody like Morales can succeed… and right from the get go. But this kid just got shellacked.

  108. There Will Never Be Another Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    Dang, and now we have Chris Stewart leading off. . . .

  109. astrocityfan June 29th, 2012 at 7:47 pm

    Why all the love for youklis? Didn’t he get run out of Boston cause of his surly disposition? I don’t like the guy.

  110. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2012 at 7:47 pm

    Heathcott with his 2nd homer of the week.

  111. Yankee Trader June 29th, 2012 at 7:48 pm

    I suspect Quintana will serve up some more runs. Game time temp is ?

  112. TheStraw June 29th, 2012 at 7:48 pm

    I wouldn’t really call that getting shellacked, but whatever …

  113. theREALkevin June 29th, 2012 at 7:48 pm

    Bad inning, but Warren looks like he has MLB starting stuff at least. Prob not a super high ceiling or anything, but there are things to like.

  114. mick June 29th, 2012 at 7:48 pm

    why was igarashi called up only to be sent down?
    brain fart?

  115. tomingeorgia June 29th, 2012 at 7:48 pm

    luis,
    You played ball. I played ball, Pat M. played ball, randy played ball, blake played ball, and a lot of others here did, too. Anybody ever have a tough time on their first start at a higher level? I did.

  116. There Will Never Be Another Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:48 pm

    Man what a deflating last three days. Wednesday: the injuries, Thursday: a terrible loss, Friday: Let down so far

  117. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    Last time I checked we were in first place…I guess not everything goes right in Sux land.

    Stewie!!! Good bunt!!

  118. DocTodd June 29th, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    This kid is an obvious graduate of the AJ Burnett school of pitching, where the philosophy is to squander any lead you are given, as fast as you can….

  119. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    Stewart: leading off an inning: .333/.375

    and it continues in a very sss.

    Go Jeet!

    Heathcott and Adams with homers.

  120. astrocityfan June 29th, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    Steeewwwwww!!!! Using the bunt and run tool!

  121. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    He didnt tag him

  122. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    Did he touch him?

  123. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:51 pm

    They didnt show an adequate angle. Alright, now they did. He was out.

  124. ron June 29th, 2012 at 7:51 pm

    It really makes you appreciate pitchers like nova,and hughes more.
    Getting ml hitters out is not easy.

    We simply are not going to get the length from garcia,and phelps/warren/etc,and that is never a good thing.

  125. Niblick June 29th, 2012 at 7:52 pm

    Thank goodness we’ve got quality players like Stewie.

  126. astrocityfan June 29th, 2012 at 7:52 pm

    The stew giving and the stew takers away. At least he kept Jeter from hitting into the double play.

  127. There Will Never Be Another Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:52 pm

    Stewart bunted, let’s not get carried away that he is some amazing lead off to an inning.

    Stewart has hard time getting to second base running and throwing runners out at second

    And Jeter grounds out. Just a complete turn of events. The euphoria of the first inning and now a bad, bad, bad second inning.

    And the young pitching depth was highly exaggerated.

  128. mick June 29th, 2012 at 7:52 pm

    this kid gets 2 starts and phelps is the long man.
    the talk of stretching phelps out was baffling..

  129. There Will Never Be Another Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:52 pm

    Roller coaster of a game.

  130. rm June 29th, 2012 at 7:53 pm

    Hopefully the kid will setle down and give us a clean inning

  131. mick June 29th, 2012 at 7:53 pm

    And the young pitching depth was highly exaggerated.
    ===================
    that’s why you can’t get enough…

  132. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:54 pm

    Me too Tom…Almost nobody is able to perform from the get go in a higher level…To expect that on your first rodeo is well….You know.

    Time for dinner. Bullpens will get tested tonght. Go Yankees.

  135. rm June 29th, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    time to get phelps up

  136. Tyler June 29th, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    Warren has pitched all of 2 innings in his mlb career… I don’t think that proves that the young pitching depth was exaggerated by any means. People here liked Phelps when he was up. If Warren can get through 5 it would be a pretty decent debut.

  137. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    Adios. let the shellacking continue. oy vey

  138. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    Phelps wasn’t available to start yet. Mitchell pitched 7 innings Tuesday. Warren was the only one available of the 3 and has been pitching well. But he is the most work in progress of those three. It is not like he is #one on the depth chart.

  139. theREALkevin June 29th, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    Can’t hang a slider like that. Gotta keep the ball down man.

  140. mick June 29th, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    the loss of MO will be felt more as the season wears on.
    last night showed us that.

  141. astrocityfan June 29th, 2012 at 7:56 pm

    Adam Warren the pride of Carolina sigh

  142. There Will Never Be Another Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:56 pm

    luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:54 pm
    Me too Tom…Almost nobody is able to perform from the get go in a higher level…To expect that on your first rodeo is well….You know.

    *******

    Stop making excuses. Adam Warren is in his twenties. The way some of you sound about these prospects, I almost think they are grammar school or something. He is a big boy, he either succeeds or doesn’t. Not every prospect can be a special snowflake.

  143. Carlo June 29th, 2012 at 7:56 pm

    Every year I am more and more impressed with just how great of a job Cashman has done rebuilding the farm system. Just loaded with talent…….pitchers coming out of our ears….the killer b’s (busted, broke, and baggin groceries) and then all these other studs. Wheewww!!!!!

  144. Niblick June 29th, 2012 at 7:56 pm

    I take it back. Stinks doesn’t even begin to describe this loser. Get him back to Scranton, or little league.

  145. xcv June 29th, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    hey genius girardi go mixing and matching now.

  146. mick June 29th, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    Phelps won’t be getting any starts here if Freddy is good.
    He will have to be stretched out all over again if he is needed.
    Should have left him down there and found another long man.

  147. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    but hey guys, we’ve got the great GB7 giving constant updates of duds like this guy.

    And yes, I know this is the kid’s first game, so maybe he could become something eventually.

    That YES shot of his parents after the Konerko homer was priceless. Theyre not sitting forward anymore. They see their son aint long for this game LOL

  148. tomingeorgia June 29th, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    mster mick,
    You are right , of course. On the other hand, the kid is going to get a no-decision, as the Yanks win this game.

  149. njsketch June 29th, 2012 at 7:58 pm

    take this guy out before all his confidence is shattered…he needs a few years in AAA

  150. Niblick June 29th, 2012 at 7:58 pm

    Can someone please wake up the Binder?

  151. Carlo June 29th, 2012 at 7:58 pm

    Does chris stewart have a fking clue where 2nd base is?

  152. theREALkevin June 29th, 2012 at 7:58 pm

    Stewart wtf man tryin to do too much

  153. luis June 29th, 2012 at 7:58 pm

    Ugh

  154. There Will Never Be Another Mo June 29th, 2012 at 7:59 pm

    Mitchell has been bad for the most part in AAA.

    Warren is getting hammered now.

    We will see with Phelps.

    Betances is in AA.

    Banuelos is injured (shocking, pitchers can get injured) plus he had a few good starts, but at the beginning of the year was still have his 2011 command issues

    So there is your depth, meaning there was not that great of young pitching depth to begin with.

  155. mick June 29th, 2012 at 7:59 pm

    Just loaded with talent…….pitchers coming out of our ears…
    =========================
    can’t have enough ….why he went for pineda.
    he knew what he had down below.

  156. syd_cash June 29th, 2012 at 7:59 pm

    ugh my goodness

  157. astrocityfan June 29th, 2012 at 7:59 pm

    I honestly don’t think he is this bad but good grief get him out of the game!!

    Annnnnd another great throw by stew!

  158. Niblick June 29th, 2012 at 7:59 pm

    Go Stewie!! As in go anywhere far from the stadium, pllease.

  159. There Will Never Be Another Mo June 29th, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    he knew what he had down below.

    *******

    Bingo +1

  160. I Am Winning June 29th, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    I really didn’t think he would’ve been this bad. I’m listening to the game and not watching it but sounds like he isn’t fooling anyway. I was afraid of the lack of power AND lack of stuff. But now that Chad mentioned his location is good, his stuff may just not translate into getting major league hitters out.

    I do feel for the kid. This has to be extremely disheartening. He probably never struggled like this before.

  161. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    Phelps could have given them 65 pitches tonight and continued his stretching out process.

  162. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    I like what Stewart has provided us so far this season… but I wondered at the beginning of the season..

    How can the New York Yankees allow a no name no career guy like Stewart the honor of wearing the pinstripes.

    Wasnt there a marginally better backup catcher available for less than $1 million more than Stewart? There had to be someone marginally better, even if the guy was worth 1 more win that Stewie. Kelly Shoppach is a backup catcher that could provide more than this guy.

  163. tomingeorgia June 29th, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    hey, blake, the whole Yankees team sucks! (first place ntw)

  164. Tyler June 29th, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    Stewart is doing the exact opposite of what the Yanks thought he would do… He’s hitting pretty well actually but his throwing has been rough recently.

  165. Niblick June 29th, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    Let’s hope this brings about the end of Warren’s career as a Yankee.

  166. Nick in SF June 29th, 2012 at 8:01 pm

    I just got a text from someone I know who’s visiting Seattle:

    “The red sox are in town and their toxic badly dressed fans are everywhere.”

  167. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    In fact, Phelps could get Warren’s next start, let Warren be long man.
    Then he might be ready if Freddy falls apart.

  168. astrocityfan June 29th, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    Much better sequence there (looking for any bright spot)

  169. egk June 29th, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    They should have started Phelps and worked to get him stretched out if he’s going to pitch at all. Otherwise he’s being wasted. He’s already proven he’s much more ready to pitch at this level. Warren or someone else should be broken in as long relief.

    This team’s brain trust better hope Freddy can pitch like he did when he was going well last year.

  170. luis June 29th, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    After three innings…Yup his career is over

  171. sunny615 June 29th, 2012 at 8:03 pm

    I think we can call Adam Warren’s tryout a failure. Next.

  172. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:04 pm

    bringing up Igarashi then sending him back was absolutely mindless….beyond comprehension.
    makes somebody look stupid.

  173. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 8:05 pm

    Wow. This kid got ripped around.

  174. astrocityfan June 29th, 2012 at 8:05 pm

    As we say here in NC “bless his heart”

  175. theREALkevin June 29th, 2012 at 8:05 pm

    He should throw more changeups. Decent pitch or him and would help offset a not overpowering fastball

  176. Nick in SF June 29th, 2012 at 8:05 pm

    Tough love from Papa Warren…. no standing O for you, kid.

  177. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    There’s a learning curve. Also hard to debut vs. White Sox, so I am not surprised by the results. Let’s hope Phelps has his location and we keep it close. We can hit Quintana, who’s been sitting forever.

  178. Carlo June 29th, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    The next time cashman uses the term “untouchable” I hope he chokes on his tongue. Mega doosch.

  179. rm June 29th, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    I think Phelps will get about 50-60 pitches and both Warren and Phelps will be sent back down after the game to bring back a fresh arm or two and maybe Cervelli

  180. Niblick June 29th, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    Bye bye Warren. Get the heck out of here.

  181. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    Fredddy as the 5th man for 2 months moves Hughes and Nova to3 & 4 & more pressure.
    Hope this domino effect doesn’t sting too much.

  182. astrocityfan June 29th, 2012 at 8:07 pm

    At least it’s early in the game right? Still plenty of time for the offense.

  183. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 8:07 pm

    You may as well sit in the dugout as long as possible Phelpsy, who knows how many more times you may get this opp. haha

  184. Niblick June 29th, 2012 at 8:07 pm

    Luis – he didn’t even make three innings. So yeah, I think his Yankee career should be over. At least for this millennium.

  185. xcv June 29th, 2012 at 8:07 pm

    good thing robertson is well rested. he’s going to have plenty of opportunities to save the game tonight. that girardi is almost as smart as bobby valentine

  186. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2012 at 8:08 pm

    tomingeorgia June 29th, 2012 at 8:00 pm
    hey, blake, the whole Yankees team sucks! (first place ntw)

    ————————————————————————————————————————-

    Warren’s going to be a decent pitcher, but, circumstances dictated that the first team he faces is team like Chicago that’s aggressive, knows he strike zone and has power. A team such as KC or Seattle would have been a better choice to break in against.

  187. luis June 29th, 2012 at 8:09 pm

    Thanks Lou…Wise words

  188. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 8:09 pm

    Hope this isnt one of those nights that the offense has one early explosive inning and then dies for the rest of the night.

  189. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:09 pm

    The White Sox can hit for sure.
    Let Freddy and Phelps start and find a long man.
    Mitre?

    YF,

    Good post

  191. rm June 29th, 2012 at 8:10 pm

    We’ve got 60 days without Andy Pettite. Warren will probably be back after the ASB

  192. astrocityfan June 29th, 2012 at 8:10 pm

    Good point GB and I agree, Warren is much better than he showed. Hope it doesn’t kill his confidence.

  193. theREALkevin June 29th, 2012 at 8:10 pm

    Good job phelps.

    not here…

  196. Villa Nova-Ya June 29th, 2012 at 8:11 pm

    I feel for he kid. I’m sure not what he wanted.

    So it’s up to he offense to pick him up.

  197. RSM June 29th, 2012 at 8:12 pm

    I walked out with it 4-0 Yanks.
    Came back and it’s 6-4 Sox.
    I hate when that happens!

    Guess Warren didn’t fair so well :(

  198. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:12 pm

    Phelps earned this start even if he had only 50-65 pitches in him.
    Who is running the show?

  199. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 8:13 pm

    Nice job by Phelps.

  200. luis June 29th, 2012 at 8:13 pm

    Phelps was the obvious choice to start this game…Unfortunately he wasn’t stretch out to do so….Tough assignment to debut against this WS team.

    FTR…The team has sustained an inordinate amount of injuries to their pitching staff. If we didn’t have the depth…We wouldn’t be where we are.

  201. Villa Nova-Ya June 29th, 2012 at 8:14 pm

    gb7

    Right. In a perfect world you can be eased into the ML. this was certainly trial by fire. Just hope he can keep good attitude and take something from this.

  202. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 8:14 pm

    Oops, I meant Warren may as well sit in the dugout as long as possible.

    GB7 would claim the living corpse of Peter Gammons would be a decent pitcher.

    Yay offense!

  203. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    You want Phelps to come in second because he can’t go long and he is used to long relief. If you start Phelps, you can’t go to Warren. Not fair to him. No one else (not Freddy) available for long relief.

  204. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    Phelps was the obvious choice to start this game…Unfortunately he wasn’t stretch out to do so…
    =======================================
    what’s the difference if he gives you 4-5 innings now.
    he could have started, then bring in igarashi for middle relief.

  205. sunny615 June 29th, 2012 at 8:16 pm

    That was quick. :(

  206. luis June 29th, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    MMick,

    See YF post…That’s why

  207. astrocityfan June 29th, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    Yankee hitters making Quintana look good these last two innings. Not showing much patience.

  208. sunny615 June 29th, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    Please tell me the offense didn’t fall asleep.

  209. cofuzz June 29th, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    I guess It’s Mitchell’s turn Wednesday?

  210. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    See YF post…That’s why

  218. luis June 29th, 2012 at 8:21 pm

    cofuzz,

    Since Freddy is set to start, you had nobody for long relief…Phelps has the experience…It was the right call.

    Nice 3rd k

  219. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:22 pm

    so no one else can explain why igarashi was brought up, didn’t throw a pitch, then sent back?

    and why girardi said phelps was being stretched out , only to be brought up for long relief?

  220. LGY June 29th, 2012 at 8:22 pm

    Yankee fans suck :(

  221. blake June 29th, 2012 at 8:23 pm

    SJ isn’t afraid to make calls on players after one big league start…

    Warren’s fastball is pretty straight and tonight he had very little depth to his slider…..he had a pretty good CU but didn’t really use it. He’ll learn from it but he’s going to have to locate better and get more tilt on that slider and learn to use his CU more to have success at this level….

  222. rm June 29th, 2012 at 8:23 pm

    I think Michell and Schwinden/Iggarashi will rotate up and down with Phelps/Warren until they figure out which one should stick

  223. luis June 29th, 2012 at 8:23 pm

    He was brought for last night’s game…They needed Phelps for this one

  224. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 8:23 pm

  227. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:25 pm

    what is igarashi’s role?

  228. jackamir June 29th, 2012 at 8:25 pm

    I think young starters can get two strikes on hitters but find it quite difficult to put hitters away. Especially if they don’t have power arms or that exceptional curveball. I know it sounds very trite but its the fact JACK…….

  229. rm June 29th, 2012 at 8:26 pm

    mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:22 pm
    so no one else can explain why igarashi was brought up, didn’t throw a pitch, then sent back?

    and why girardi said phelps was being stretched out , only to be brought up for long relief?

    —————————–
    I suspect they couldn’t get Phelps to NY in time for the game last night and Iggy was the next best option

  230. jr1212 June 29th, 2012 at 8:26 pm

    This thing that the Yanks cant devolop pitching is gettin ridiculous. Let me name a few that have been develop with the Yanks:

    Nova
    Hughes
    IPK
    Quintanilla
    Robertson
    Joba
    Noesi

    You might soon add Phelps to that list also. And saying Warren sucks off his first start ever is just stupid. Now im not saying off the pitchers are goin to be HOF or even stars but they all have stuff to het hitters out. Cmon how many pitchers become aces??

  231. luis June 29th, 2012 at 8:26 pm

    Blake,

    Phelps is an MLB pitcher….Warren has still ways to go…Very good assessment by the way

  232. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:26 pm

    Phelps should get Warren’s next start b/c there is no guarantee Freddy can give length.

  233. blake June 29th, 2012 at 8:27 pm

    offense needs to step up and win a game tonight.

  234. blake June 29th, 2012 at 8:28 pm

    “Phelps should get Warren’s next start b/c there is no guarantee Freddy can give length”

    he would have pitched today if he was stretched out……

  235. LGY June 29th, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    Nick

    True. I just committed one of the many Lohud fallacies. Correction. Some Yankee fans suck.

    And I saw that about the Knicks. Great news!! Speaking of the Knicks I finally got to check out Clyde Frazier’s restaurant today for a late lunch/early dinner. That place is awesome. Got to shoot around a bit while waiting for dessert.

  236. jr1212 June 29th, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    Iragashi was here yersterday for emergency only.Phelps was brought today for this purpose. Nobody knew what u were goin to get from Warren. So if Warren only gave u a couple of innings the Yanks had a capable long man. If you ask me it was a good call,on the Yanks part

  237. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:30 pm

    Phelps could have given 5 innings today and still might.
    Then you go to your middle relief.

  238. blake June 29th, 2012 at 8:30 pm

  246. jpmatrixfan88 June 29th, 2012 at 8:32 pm

    Mick, you and igarashi, give it a rest. I actually PREDICTED he would only be up for a day. So they could have an extra bp arm if needed because our bullpen was short yesterday, then sent him out for phelps for long relief for warren. It’s not a damn conspiracy.

    Also, as another poster pointed out, maybe they just couldnt get phelps here in time. Phelps was playing for Tampa, he wasn’t in AAA…

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

    The BP is already taxed….it was the right call…If he was stretched out already, then it is another story…You were expecting 4-5 innings or less from Warren and you had Phelps to cover most of the rest of the game without taxing the BP.

    YES!! new ball game…Tom good call

  253. blake June 29th, 2012 at 8:33 pm

    How is Stewart not asked to bunt

  256. LGY June 29th, 2012 at 8:35 pm

    Love Hustle doubles.

    If SJ ran the Yankees, they’d be in sell mode every year on May 1st.

  257. blake June 29th, 2012 at 8:35 pm

    If SJ ran the Yankees Kuroda, Hughes, and Nova would all be in the bullpen and they would have no starters right now.

  258. Nick in SF June 29th, 2012 at 8:35 pm

    LGY, to clarify, when I said “this is not a fair representation”, I meant that the sample we’re getting in this LoHud game thread is not necessarily a fair representation of the fan base as a whole. But who knows, maybe it is.

    Every year I am more and more impressed with just how great of a job Cashman has done rebuilding the farm system. Just loaded with talent…….pitchers coming out of our ears….the killer b’s (busted, broke, and baggin groceries) and then all these other studs. Wheewww!!!!!

    ———————————————————————————————————

    I don’t see the rays gazillion 1st round draft picks lighting it up either.

    It is very difficult to pick,develop a stud player,but i think we have a few with austin,williams,sanchez,and as long as we can develop a few serviceable pitchers,we are fine,and we already have hughes,and nova.

    Give me one ace,or close to it,and a solid 1/2,and we made out good.

  261. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:36 pm

    will warren get another start?

  262. luis June 29th, 2012 at 8:38 pm

    Its why pitching at the ML level is so tough. Also why fans overrating P prospects is fools gold. ?#Yankees

    He’s takes more of a business approach. He’s not attached to players like us fans are. I still cant give up on Phil Hughes for whatever inane reason, but he knows Phil will never be anything and is a bust.

  266. jpmatrixfan88 June 29th, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    Haha no problem Mick. Igarashi was just here as an extra arm so they could save phelps for today in case Warren bombed, which he did. If phelps was up yesterday and had to pitch we would be screwed today lol.

  267. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    Dont get me wrong, I dont like the guy, but if he ran the Yankees and without payroll contraints, we’d have better, more reliable, more established pitchers behind CC and Andy.

  268. luis June 29th, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    Good two posts jpmatrix

  269. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    I’d start Phelps vs. Tampa too, especially considering we have an off day on the 5th before going to Boston for the weekend series. Therefore, we should have more bp flexibility.

  270. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    Phelps should throw a fair amount of pitches tonight, so he should be ready for the next turn
    ================================
    Then back to long relief unless CC is out longer..
    In fact, he should go back down if Freddy does well but then they might not have a long reliever.

  271. theREALkevin June 29th, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    Mo mo,

    He overreacts though. U can’t be attached to players, but you must have patience also and he is very much lacking that.

  272. tomingeorgia June 29th, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    Adam: no decision, as I predicted. Don’t lose hope!

  273. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    But we’ll see. I believe Girardi say Phelps would stay in long relief role.

    Fans always get upset when people criticize their prospects. When you take emotion out of it and look objectively at a player, especially P’s, it’s not hard to spot weaknesses & strengths. ?#Yankees? have real problems developing SP. That must change.

    Again, spot on. We got lucky with Nova and Wang.

  277. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:43 pm

    SJ is reactionary.
    He is a media type trying to make a name.

  278. blake June 29th, 2012 at 8:44 pm

    They should stretch Phelps back out and best man between he and Freddy gets Andy’s starts til he comes back……

  279. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:45 pm

    If i were the Yankees I would keep him instead of Garcia
    ================================
    They have to give Freddy a few starts now but have Phelps ready in case he fails.
    That’s why I said to send him down.

  280. blake June 29th, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    I don’t disagree that the Yanks have had issues developing starting pitching….but when you go off on twitter talking about it after a kid makes his first major league start then it kinda seems reactionary….Warren isn’t going to be a starter for the Yankees most likely….he never was even before today.

  281. Villa Nova-Ya June 29th, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    Yankeefem

    I would hope that Girardi would have some flexibility there. Phelps would give them a better chance. But let’s see what happens tonight. If phelps stays strong maybe thy leave him in and continue to stretch him out here.

  282. theREALkevin June 29th, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    There’s that run that the Yankees blew last inning by not having Stewart bunt. Always happens

  283. luis June 29th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    YF,

    He was hoping for Warren to give them length and in that case Phelps would not throw enough pitches to continue his stretching…He will throw plenty of pitches tonight to continue that process, so i do think he will start next turn

  284. jpmatrixfan88 June 29th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    I try Luis, I try!

    So what do we think Lohud…Phelps on Wednesday? Warren? If Phelps, then what do we do with Warren? Phelps over Garcia when CC comes back?

  285. blake June 29th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

  288. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    You can’t throw away games when 1st place is essential again.
    I don’t think Warrren gets another start in TB.
    Go with Phelps and find a long man dammit…

  289. xcv June 29th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    yanks don’t need catchers like pierzynski. sign martin this off season instead – he’s way better

  290. Pat M. June 29th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    It seems as though Theo Epstien is really trying to make a big spash impression in Chi-Town…..There’s a club that wants Garza, is willing to take Soriano with some cash consideration from the Cubbies…….And yet he’s asking for the moon as if he’s in the cat bird seat…………LGY…..Walt ” Clyde ” Frazier and his fade away base line jumper…..My all time favorite

  291. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    Point is, Yankees should have better talent in the minors. Better SP talent and better talent all around. Better coaches in the minors to develop players, mainly SP. Not sure whether Rothschild is a good pitching coach or not, but how about an elite pitching coach like that Cardinals Duncan guy.

  292. raymagnetic June 29th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    SJ stopped posting here cause he’s nephew looks like a bust #SJ44

    Don’t know why folks here care about what he thinks.

  293. blake June 29th, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    “There’s a club that wants Garza, is willing to take Soriano with some cash consideration from the Cubbies……”

    Dodgers? I wouldn’t be surprised if Theo prices himself out of being able to trade Garza at all…..

  294. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    Villa, Phelps is the logical choice to start and I think he can go another couple of innings. But we do have some choices. So, we’ll see what they do. And they can always bring up Mitchell as long man if they need to.

  295. jr1212 June 29th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    Warren probably doesnt get the next start with how Phelps has performed. He should be good for 75 pitches next time out. But that depends on how the bullpen performs the next week or so..i think Warren gets send down after the game tonite

  296. blake June 29th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    Yanks gotta win this game with the bats….Phelps is pitching well but not sure how long he can go..

  297. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    And the payroll constraints are absurd. The Yankees have more money that God, but we’ve gotta get under a certain $$ amount. As we continue to decrease our payroll, our team will get worse. Because of our lack of farm talent, and our lack of SP development, and because we’re going to lose our own players in the future. If George were alive and well, there probably wouldnt be any of this crap. He cared about winning. Cole Hamels would likely be on the wish list next offseason. To his son, this is just a business.

  298. luis June 29th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    jpmatrix,

    Phelps gets the nod IMO…You send Warren down…I would bring Mitchell in his place

  299. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    I thought they said he can go to @80 pitches.

  300. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    i think Warren gets send down after the game tonite
    ===========================
    Exactly. He served his purpose. They will figure it out,the bullpen is a process till the end of season.

  301. luis June 29th, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    Blake he was set for 70 pitches tonight

  302. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2012 at 8:54 pm

  303. blake June 29th, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    “I thought they said he can go to @80 pitches.”

    I thought they said 50 or 60 but maybe I was mistaken….if he can go 80 then he should be able to start in 5 days.

  304. mick June 29th, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    Why didn’t he start if he had 70-80 pitches?

  305. luis June 29th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

  310. luis June 29th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    He might throw too many pitches early and then he can’t go deep so you end up taxing the BP even further.

  311. jpmatrixfan88 June 29th, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    I agree Luis. Thats what i would do. Bring up mitchell for long relief.

    And that was an obvious balk. Disgusted that no ump called that a balk.

  316. Nick in SF June 29th, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    That pickoff was not the most impressive thing about Robinson Cano’s June. :oops:

  317. jpmatrixfan88 June 29th, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    Btw people phelps was given a max of 65 to 70 pitches tonight. Not 50, certainly not 80.

  325. luis June 29th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    mick June 29th, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    luis…don’t you think he could have given us 5?

    What happens if he throws 30 pitches in an early inning? Even if he is able to throw 5 innings, then you need to use the BP yet again and is already pretty taxed. Right call from the start, even the short outing from Warren might turn out to be a blessing in disguise, because he now continues his stretching. ;)

  326. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    2-2 pitch was a strike.

  327. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    Think assessing Warren after 1 start is hasty? Nope. His stuff is pedestrian. He can’t miss bats. 99 hits in 84 IP in AAA. #Yankees Warren doesn’t change eye levels and doesn’t miss bats. That doesn’t translate at the ML level. Tough to overcome.#Yankees

    sportsJC16
    Only stayed 10 hitters too long with a kid who can’t miss bats or hold a 4 run lead. He flunked his tryout. Back to AAA. #Yankees

    Its why pitching at the ML level is so tough. Also why fans overrating P prospects is fools gold. #Yankees

  359. Jerkface June 29th, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    Yankees pitching is in a very tenuous and unstable position right now. They have to rely on 2 short-short inning guys (Eppley & Rapada) and one of their mainstays is struggling mightily (wade) and then their 2 big time SPs are also out and the people replacing them are simply volatile.

    They are going to have to really step up to make it through this stretch without too much damage.

  360. mick June 29th, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    Wade has been proctorized due to the lack of Mo.

  368. Captain Clutch June 29th, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    Wade should be on the dl. It’s obvious that he has nothing because his arm is so fatigued from pitching too much when Robertson was on the dl.

  369. Bring in the Goose June 29th, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    Where the F is Arod?

    The Yankees will be buying out the remaining 4 years of his contract at this pace.

    Last thing he said last season was “I’m coming back with a vengeance.”

    .267 as a 4 hitter with weak power numbers is no vengeance. It’s inadequacy.

  374. LGY June 29th, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    They need to shut Wade down for a week or so. Something is not right there.

    This game would not be nearly as annoying if Girardi just locked the game up with arguably the best relief pitcher in baseball in 2011 last night.

    Captain Clutch June 29th, 2012 at 9:36 pm
    Wade should be on the dl. It’s obvious that he has nothing because his arm is so fatigued from pitching too much when Robertson was on the dl.
    ————————–
    Wrong.

    Wade had 4 full days off from June 11 to June 16 before starting this awful stretch where he has given up 9 runs in 4 innings.

    Middle relievers are in their role because they aren’t that good or consistent, that’s why the names tend to change over all the time.

    He’s only thrown 31 innings all season, if he’s pitching poorly (and he is) it’s on him for making bad pitches, no one else.

    You know, pitchers arms don’t fall off because they throw pitches, that is why they are on the teams-starting pitchers throw 100+ pitches every 5 days plus throw a bullpen session in between, why is it always the manager’s fault for ‘overworking’ a reliever when the real cause is just that they aren’t that good (for the most part).

    mick,

    If Rapada makes the throw Girardi would have gotten away with one.. The right move was to bring Robertson at the start of the inning.. Saying that Robertson deserves most of the blame for throwing the pitch. Nothing wrong with criticizing Girardi but sometimes the player deserves some blame

  391. Jerkface June 29th, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    I don’t think so we claimed him off waivers about a year ago

    Being claimed off waivers doesn’t mean someone lacks options. And he was not claimed off waivers, he opted out of his minor league deal with the rays when they didnt call him up by his deadline and the Yankees signed him.

    He was added to the 40 man in 2007 offseason, may have burned 1 in 2008 but didn’t use any the rest of his career.

    I’m going to conclude that he has ~2 options left.

  392. JM June 29th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    http://www.newsday.com/sports/.....-1.3814710

    Bad news…the pen could have used him….I especially don’t like Cashman saying, well, if not this year, then next year. I signed him for next year anyway.

  393. Nick in SF June 29th, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    I don’t know where I was the moment Jerry died, but I’m sure it wasn’t inside GG Park. I did drive by the impromptu shrine on the Haight/Ashbury corner later that night, I lived about 5 minutes away at the time. I might’ve hit up the Ben & Jerry’s while I was there.

  394. Captain Clutch June 29th, 2012 at 9:52 pm

  395. Pat M. June 29th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    I still say part of this chain reaction began when Joe didn’t let Hughes go for the completion the other night, which led to Wade and then Soriano and then of course last night…….Under the current staff situation I think you try to extend your starters just a little more….I also thought that Nova could have gone a little more considering what happened to the paen the night before…….Spliting with Chicago at this point will be good…….Tough trip awaits the Bombers

  396. TD213 June 29th, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    Honestly, the more these “young arms” pitch, the more vindicated Cashman looks for trading for Pineda.

    None of them, except maybe Banuelos if he can avoid being Pavano Jr., are even remotely rotation pitchers for the Yankees.

    Their pitching “depth” was basically Andy deciding to unretire. The guys in the minors are all overrated and so far Cashman has been proven right for not trusting his depth and feeling the need to bolster it with a proven commodity.

    And I wanted no part of the trade and still think Montero is going to be a stud, but have to look at the trade differently after seeing the system arms tank this year.

  397. Carlo June 29th, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    Did anyone read the article? Aardsma won’t be up July 19…..no where does it say he is done for 2012.

    “I still say part of this chain reaction began when Joe didn’t let Hughes go for the completion the other night, which led to Wade and then Soriano and then of course last night”

    He didn’t know the bullpen would go in the tank as a result. They were all pitching so well until then, no one could have predicted this. He also expected to have Andy and CC the next 2 days, giving the bullpen a rest as well.

  400. MG June 29th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the next pitcher added to the Yankees bullpen (unless they pick up a guy from another major league team) is Ramon Ortiz.

    He has been the best pitcher at Scranton this year and certainly isn’t someone the Yankees would worry about slowing his development.

    He has started and relieved in the majors and may not be an attractive addition to those who want the Yankees to pitch their prospects but could easily fill a role that is needed over the next couple of months.

  401. JM June 29th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    No it doesn’t say Aardsma won’t be up later this year but, Cashman saying that he signed him for 2013 anyway doesn’t exactly fill me with confidence that he’s going to be in the Bronx anytime soon.

  402. jacksquat June 29th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    Once CC is back, this whole debate is moot. Kay goes on and on and on with his BS.

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

    yeah, I agree. He is the fool who said that Warren, Mitchell, Phelps, would be in the rotations of 25 teams in baseball. Last year he said Noesi (that of the 7 ERA this year) would be a #3 starter in other team’s rotations while his cronies in the media kept saying he will be better than Nova.

    The team simply has no ability to scout their own. Where are their hard-throwing young studs? Just soft tosser after soft tosser, a bunch of 0s with “pitchability and 3 above average pitches” who can’t get anyone out. Their one hard thrower is walking 10 guys per 9.

  420. Carlo June 29th, 2012 at 10:10 pm

    I love it when they talk about how nicely the ball comes out of such and such a prospects hand. Oh, banuelos, ball comes out of his hand so easily. This ease of release makes him “untouchable”, he cannot be touched. Not even jerry sandusky can touch him. Brian will not allow it.

  421. MG June 29th, 2012 at 10:10 pm

    this blog is never happier than when the Yankees are losing games and so many posters can vent their frustrations.

  426. Carlo June 29th, 2012 at 10:11 pm

  427. yankee 221 June 29th, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    I still don’t understand why these soft-tossers with no upside continue to get shots in the rotation when they have no chance of success in the AL East while someone like Joba with his power stuff is relegated to middle relief. Talk about a twisted philosophy.

  428. jr1212 June 29th, 2012 at 10:12 pm

  431. bruceb June 29th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    If Warren pitches at Fenway, we’ll need to score seven runs every inning, not just the 7th and 8th. Where’s Chad Gaudin when you need him?

  432. jr1212 June 29th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    Carlo,

    Thats not true, the Lee- Montero deal was off when the Mariners also asked for Nova. Also Nova has developed into a good SP, you think the Yanks had nothing to do with it?

  433. Jerkface June 29th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    I’m pretty sure Wade used up his options in 2007, 2009, and 2010. Yes he was released by Tampa Bay from the minors we didn’t claim him,

    No, he was injured in 2010 and then DFA’d. He has atleast 1 option. He wasn’t on the 40 man to start 2007, so they would not use an option then. He had to be added to protect from the rule 5 draft. He didn’t spend a long enough time in the minors in 2008 to use an option. So the only option that could have been used was in 2009.

  434. blake June 29th, 2012 at 10:15 pm

  438. MG June 29th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    the pitch that has deserted Wade is his change, which was really good last year and was used as his out pitch.

    He’s trying to get outs with a fastball more useful in batting practice and a bad curveball, it has nothing to do with fatigue and everything to do with confidence, which seems completely gone for him right now.

  439. luis June 29th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Right now Wade is taking one bullet for the team…It shows how low he is in the pecking order..He needs some time off

  440. Captain Clutch June 29th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Either girardi is trying to blow out wades arm or he will be in AAA tomorrow. 3 innings and 60 pitches is way too much for him.

  441. 4time June 29th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Nova throws a sinking fastball in the mid 90s with plus velocity and has a plus off-speed offering and has quickly developed other workable, improving secondary stuff. He had a good foundation to work off of. He never missed enough bats in the minors, but he did throw hard.

    Nothing like guys like Phelps, Warren, Mitchell, etc. Next we’re going to hear about the great Brett Marshall and his 4 Ks per 9. The team is lacking heavily in the power arms department in the minors. These “pitchability guys” go nowhere.

  442. Nick in SF June 29th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Wade might need oxygen to get through this inning. I knew things would be rough when Andy went down but I didn’t expect the pen to collapse like this.

  445. Carlo June 29th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    The nova piece of the lee deal was unconfirmed. Some say adams injury ruined it.
    Sure, nova succeeded despite the yanks or with their help, whatever is fine. Most fail.

    Nice tag dck.

  446. I Am Winning June 29th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    I don’t think this Girardi is going to say thanks Wade for taking one for the team. I think Joe allowing him to throw nearly 60 pitches shows you what he thinks of him at this point. He is pitching in a mop up roll right now. If he did his job, we would be a run behind and Wade certainly would be done after an inning.

  447. Captain Clutch June 29th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    The pitching is really a disaster right now. The bullpen is extremely short and will slowly fall apart.

    The reason they went to the Rangers was because they believed they were not getting enough with Montero only. They thought that Smoak was a better player than Montero. Now if the Yanks would have added Nova would they have taken the Yanks package?

    ——-

    You definitely need to manage with emotion to some extent. I have always felt the most difficult thing about being an MLB manager is managing the clubhouse and commanding respect from your players.

    In terms of in game managing they really don’t have much impact and I bet someone from a statistical background would do a better job than most MLB managers.

    What Joe did to Wade was f’d up.

    The bullpen really needs more good arms. This team is going to be in trouble. They better hope that epply and rapada don’t lose the magic pixie dust.

  483. Frozen Rope June 29th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    Well if you are gonna lose go down in style with your fourth of pitching, at least that adds some intrigue

  484. Hassey June 29th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    time for the hail mary

  485. Melk Man June 29th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    Amazing how Sox can find nobodies like Atchison, Andrew Miller, Morales, Albers, etc. who have sucked everywhere else but are pitching exceptionally well this year/

    Hell, they put Morales in as a fill-in starter and he looks like Kershaw in the rotation- Meanwhile, we can’t even find a damn guy from AAA to keep us in a ballgame. It is why if we don’t get our heads in the game, this division will be tied by the ASB.

  486. Nick in SF June 29th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    The White Sox were clearly invigorated when they didn’t have to look at Youk’s face anymore.

    But by all means, keep screeching about Cashman and Girardi.

  487. Frozen Rope June 29th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    Wise should have pitched the ninth last night

  488. MoRings42 June 29th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    There’s no reason to be angry. Last night was the winnable game. Tonight was a rookie nobody.

  489. bruceb June 29th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    I’m not angry, just disappointed that we gave Warren a sizable lead and he couldn’t even get out of the third inning. As I said the other day, the timing of our injuries couldn’t be worse in terms of the opposition we are facing leading up to ASB.

    luis,

    After CC, Nova is my favorite pitcher to watch. Not only for the stuff but the presence he has on the mound.

  491. Melk Man June 29th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    Why not try Wise in the pen? He can’t be worse than what they have. Not like he can hit anyway

  492. Hassey June 29th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    guy looks like Garret Morris

  493. I Am Winning June 29th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    Today is a terrible day in Yankee land. Adam didn’t have a chance. Wade has a dead arm. And the Yankeea may lose a game on everyone in the division.

    On the bright side. We have 4 games to play with after this game.

  494. xcv June 29th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    ventura completely out-managed by the brilliant girardi these 2 games. cashman needs to talk to the steinbrenner boys about an extention

  495. We Want Mo Mo June 29th, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    Melk, we’ve done the same thing with Rapada, Boone, and others in the bullpen.

    Them getting Morales to be successful is sickening.

    Yup…The kid has moxie…

    Trisha – #1 Yankee fan – I hope you are o.k..

  498. Frozen Rope June 29th, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    Ok melk man lets be real, yankees have gotten lucky with cast offs before. Aaron small, chacon, rapada, colon, freddy etc

  499. Captain Clutch June 29th, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    I hope a reporter says to Girardi are you happy that you saved Robertson for tonight?

  500. Eroc June 29th, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    IMO, this goes back to the fact that the Yankees have no HFA anymore. Teams come in here with no intimidation and play as if it is a neutral field. Stadium is dead and had no atmosphere. No noise, no nasty fans, nothing to throw the opponent off.

  501. bruceb June 29th, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    Could well drop a game to all four of our AL East rivals tonight. Lot of pressure on Hughes and Kuroda this weekend to go deep.

  502. Pat M. June 29th, 2012 at 10:32 pm

    LGY……Wait until they DFA him tomorrow or the day after

    He sure does! Remember this? I loved it when Bautista puffed out his chest and barked at Ivan…and Ivan barked right back :)

  504. Eroc June 29th, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    No one asked Robertson to serve up a meatball. He is the king of coming into games with runners on in tight games, that shouldn’t have thrown him off.

  505. luis June 29th, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    Not really Bruce…The whole idea of Wade pitching this long was to give a breather to the rest of the pen…BP will be rested tomorrow except Rapada

  506. RSM June 29th, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    I don’t suppose anyone here predicted Wise as the heir to Mo?

  507. Carlo June 29th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    Tricia has seen a ton of positives over the last 36 hours in yankee baseball world.

  508. Hassey June 29th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    nevre before has 7 runs felt so much like a shutout

  509. Jerkface June 29th, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    LGY……Wait until they DFA him tomorrow or the day after

    Why would they DFA him when he has options and was very good for them until quite recently?

    Melk Man June 29th, 2012 at 10:21 pm
    The mixing and matching is blowing guys’ arms out too because they are pitching everyday…….

    ~~~~~~~~~~

    This is a major issue. Pitching to one or two guys isn’t like “getting the day off”…

  511. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    Really tough break for Cards Chris Carpenter.

    http://mlb.mlb.com/news/articl.....757673-996

    On another front, “Zona’s Aaron Hill has hit fo the cycle for the 2nd time this year. Last time somebody did that twice in a year was back in the early 1930s, Babe Herman.

  512. jmills June 29th, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    GB7 – Gabe Herman !,…………. Who shares ?

  513. jmills June 29th, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Sorry !,,,,,” Babe ,”………Hermam.

  514. jmills June 29th, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    ” Herman ,” …………sorry.
