    “That is an interesting theory but i HIGHLY doubt that is the main culprit. I think the reason power numbers are down is extremely simple, tougher drug testing”

    well yea….I don’t buy it totally either but just thought it was interesting. Aluminum bats have in fact been around forever…..but there for awhile they were really getting out of hand….the drop 5 bats with a sweet spot the size of Texas that were used 10 years ago….I could see what he was talking about.

    Gotta be Phelps in Igarashi to AAA.

    “Should have just put Martin on the DL.. I hate this game.”

    No one to bring up until after Euro 2012 is over. Cervelli would be useless back there.

  6. blake June 29th, 2012 at 3:51 pm

    Haven’t done this in awhile and it’s probably the reason Jones hasn’t been hitting…..it’s sure to work……

    Andrew Jones SUCKS!

  7. Joe from Long Island June 29th, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    shame – i understand the frustration about gardner’s situation. but, unless all three of the doctors/orthopedic specialists that gardner has seen (Dr. Ahmad, at Hospital for Special Surgery, Dr. James Andrews, and Dr. Kremchek in Cincinnati (at Gardner’s request)) have all missed the boat, the problem – as i’ve read/understand it – is a bone bruise with resultant muscle inflammation. i’m not an orthopedic surgeon, but i don’t think there’s anything to operate on. you don’t whack out inflamed muscle, nor do you take out cortical bone. it just needs whatever period of time to heal. that’s the rationale behind him getting PRP therapy, to try and speed the healing process as has been done on Kobe, Alex, bartolo colon before that great year for nyy, and Grant Hill (if i recall correctly).

  8. Pat M. June 29th, 2012 at 4:01 pm

    I’m amused and not really surprised that the local hack sport-writers are pointing their mustard stained fingers at Yankee Skipper Joe Giradi for last night’s gut wrenching loss……Really guys !!!! However once that ball was hit back to Rapada I just had a sharp sudden pain right above my belt line……..Then there’s Robertson’s get me over BP fastball thinking Viciedo would be taking …….Over the years I too have had issues with Skipper Joe, but last night isn’t one of them……

  9. tomingeorgia June 29th, 2012 at 4:02 pm

    Blake,
    It’s the old Bojo reverse curse. Jones, DH? WE’RE DOOMED!

    Well, they have to kill him for something. 5 games up in the division and peaking, despite a rash of injuries and a non-vintage Yankee offense this year. So a nondescript June game against the White Sox includes the ire of the scribes and fans…

  11. Shame Spencer June 29th, 2012 at 4:04 pm

    Joe – I’m with you, and I hear what you’re saying…but I thought it was a ligament issue that wasn’t healing?

    If it is a ligament issue..it wouldn’t really surprise me if he turned out to need surgery to fix it after try to rehab him and the ligament still not healing properly.

    I’m fully on board with being wrong on this though..I’d love to have Gardner back asap and I’d enjoy eating these words. It just seems like his rehab hasn’t gone as planned at all already. You’re now half way through the year and we still have no time table on his return. And he’s seen multiple specialists. I just don’t know what to think of it.

  12. ac1 June 29th, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    I am confused about the Phelps promotion. What if Warren and Garcia pitch well, then how is Phelps going to continue to get to his # of pitches needed to start and actually start?

  13. Pat M. June 29th, 2012 at 4:12 pm

    Doc Joe……Are you a little surprised that Gardner hasn’t seen a Neuro Specialist / Surgeon ???…Oh and by the way, it’s very cool that you’re here on back to back days….Maybe a foreshadowing of things to come ???? We can only hope ???

  14. G. Love June 29th, 2012 at 4:15 pm

    Pat M,

    You give Girardi a pass for last night because he hasn’t boneheaded his way into many losses this season. In fact, I honestly can’t pull one up other than last night.

    Rapada was the guilty party last night. Get one out at least. That throw wasn’t even close and he shouldn’t be used late in the game if his concentration can cause miscues like that.

    I do agree, however, that Drob should have been given a clean inning. Girardi draws fire from fans and media because instead of considering that option he throws out that Drob is having velocity problems which leads me to question why bring him in at all then?

    You could have started Drob clean, seen if the velocity was a problem and still had Eppley and Rapada backing him up.

    Just seems to me he go too cute last night. Torre, when screwing up, had a way of letting you know he could see the logic from the other side. Girardi, refuses to see it and gets defensive and uptight when questioned. That’s why he gets attacked.

  15. NYYROC June 29th, 2012 at 4:15 pm

    ac1: my guess is that when CC comes back 1 goes to AAA and either Freddy or the remaining guy goes to BP as LR.

  16. NYYROC June 29th, 2012 at 4:17 pm

    IMO Cashman favors Phelps over Warren. He said something on Kay’s show to the effect that if Phelps was ready he’d have been the choice before Warren.

  17. Rich in NJ June 29th, 2012 at 4:18 pm

    “I am confused about the Phelps promotion. What if Warren and Garcia pitch well, then how is Phelps going to continue to get to his # of pitches needed to start and actually start?”

    They’ll have a better read in a week for so, but at least until the AS break, they need to cover themselves with the pitcher who offers the best hope of being an effective long reliever/swingman starter. If Garcia and Warren can both pitch deep into games, they will stretch Phelps out again later, but they can’t count on that, so they have to keep him in reserve in the ML pen.

  18. Chip June 29th, 2012 at 4:19 pm

    Yankees probably want to have a long man available out of the pen that’s the only reason I can think of that they would call up Phelps and send down Igarashi – also with the pen having been worked hard they may want an arm they know and can trust which Phelps is and Iggy is not.

    NYYROC June 29th, 2012 at 4:17 pm

    —————–

    I think that probably has more to do with the fact that Phelps is already on the 40 man roster whereas Warren was not and so now they’ve started Warren’s arbitration clock.

  20. GreenBeret7 June 29th, 2012 at 4:21 pm

    Pat M.,

    Ventura has his younger hitters doing what he did. Ventura and his players know the strike zone, but, they aren’t above going after the irst good strike they see. Ventura and his kids have a controlled aggression at te plate.

    Tonight, Warren needs to do exactly what Nova did last night was walk Dunn every time he’s in a spot to hurt them. Right now, Konerko is slumping. It’s De Aza, Dunn and Viciedo that are doing damage right now.

  21. Joe from Long Island June 29th, 2012 at 4:22 pm

    shame, Pat M. – one of the things about being on the outside looking in is that we’re dependent on what’s reported in the media. and, if that’s wrong, our conclusions will be, also. i had not read anything about gardner’s ligaments, but, that just means that is what’s in the media, not necessarily what’s accurate. i hope it’s not ligament.

    regardless, he’s not available. the only real question on the table now is for how long? that’s what they have to figure out, because if he’s not coming back they have to make contingency plans for that – like a trade. that’s why i’ve liked the idea of denard span, because the skills are somewhat similar to gardner’s. and, that’s what the lineup could use, rather than a francouer type that was speculated on here yesterday.

    later.

  22. Chip June 29th, 2012 at 4:25 pm

    Mason Williams on Baseball America’s Prospect Hot Sheet:

    Why He’s Here: .370/.414/.852 (10-for-27), 3 HR, 2 2B, 1 3B, 6 RBIs, 9 R, 2 BB, 6 SO, 1-for-1 SB
    The Scoop: Williams has hit more home runs this June (five) than he hit all of last season (three) when he ranked as the New York-Penn League’s top prospect. In all likelihood it’s not a random spike, but rather the power of which scouts foretold even when Williams was a 6-foot, 150-pound amateur. He’s batting .352/.387/.636 (31-for-88) in June with 14 extra-base hits in 21 games, and he retains the distinction of being the best all-around talent in the Yankees system.

  23. tomingeorgia June 29th, 2012 at 4:29 pm

    austin, if you’re around, you didn”t send us 106. I’ve got 110 on one thermometer, 109 on the other, both in the shade. Good thing the power company put on digital meters; the bearings on the old ones would be crispy by now.

    I’m looking forward to tonight’s game I have no preference for any of the young pitchers, only having had brief glimpses of any of them. I hope they all succeed, or any one of them, for that matter. We need that to happen.

  24. luis June 29th, 2012 at 4:30 pm

    jpmatrix,

    If you are still around…No doubt that PED’s are the most obvious culprit for the offensive decline this days…But even during the height of the steroid era, the homers weren’t as big as the ones hit by the likes of Mantle or Ruth…So, in my view Blake does have a point in that maybe the aluminum bats have taken some power out of the players. Sorry for the delayed answer.

  25. Chip June 29th, 2012 at 4:31 pm

    I’m curious what the Yankees intend to do with Corban Joseph. He’s hitting very well in the minors but the Yankees aren’t going to need a 2b for a while (knock on wood). Given how awful Laird has been – do you move Joseph to 3b or given the lack of depth in the OF do you try him in a corner OF spot?

  26. Rich in NJ June 29th, 2012 at 4:32 pm

    “I’m curious what the Yankees intend to do with Corban Joseph.”

    FWIW, someone asked that question of Axisa in his chat today and he said that he can see him in the Chavez role next season, but there are issues with his defense.

  27. blake June 29th, 2012 at 4:33 pm

    “It’s the old Bojo reverse curse. Jones, DH? WE’RE DOOMED!”

    the reverse curse always works at least half the time.

    Pat M,

    I know what you mean about that sudden feeling of dread when the ball was hit to Rapada….I felt it too….just something about the way he fielded the ball…..he looked scared to death to me…..

    I’m tired of talking about last night though…..my full attention is now on complaining about Andrew Jones so he will start hitting again.

    Yeah – that’s why I was thinking OF – I mean theoretically the Yankees have both Almonte boys to play with but they haven’t gone to AAA yet.

    I really hope that instead of going out and spending on a RF next year that they give the Almonte boys a chance, even Melky Mesa. Time to get younger and start trusting your guys the way Angels did with Trout, Nats did with Harper, etc…. I realize we dont have guys like that but still…..

  34. luis June 29th, 2012 at 4:37 pm

    I understand that offensively he is as ready as he can be…But his defense is very lousy…I don’t think Corban has the range to play SS.

  43. Pat M. June 29th, 2012 at 4:44 pm

    Doc Joe……I quietly think that Brett Gardner is not as close to patrolling left field as the club lets on to be….And I think this is so Cashman doesn’t get overwhelmed with his perception what it cost being the NY Yankees, which will only cloud his judgement……Sometimes I get the impression that Brian gets a little defensive and doesn’t what to be second guessed by the media…….Blake……I’m really disappointed in Andruw Jones thus far this season…..I was so certain that he’d be a huge force this season….

    —————

    I thought Nunez was injured? Either way, Nunez had gotten a lot of playing time and the team decided it would be better without a real back-up SS. Not sure that bodes all that well for him.. but I’d like him to get another shot if for no other reason than to increase his value.

  47. luis June 29th, 2012 at 4:46 pm

    Doc Joe,

    What about trying an internal option first?…I do think that a Span type of player would be better than a Francouer type, this offense is already too one dimensional…But I would rather try an internal option first for two reasons:

    1) You need to find out if you have your Swisher replacement in house.

    2) We might be forced to overpay

  48. tomingeorgia June 29th, 2012 at 4:48 pm

    “I’m really disappointed in Andruw Jones thus far this season…..I was so certain that he’d be a huge force this season….”

    I thought he’d push to be in the lineup every day….especially when Gardner went donw. He really hasn’t been getting much PT though so maybe he just can’t get his timing…..bat looks slow though.

    •One American League executive says the Cubs are basing their asking price for Matt Garza on last summer’s Ubaldo Jimenez deal. This means it’ll take two controllable, young players with upside to pry the right-hander away from Jed Hoyer and Theo Epstein.

    Theo keeps asking for a price that teams paid for guys with 4 years of control for his non-ace with 1.5 years of control……..

    I thought all my hate for the spelling of his name last year would carry over to this season. Definitely did not think Raul would out-play him but obviously I was wrong. I’d like to see him turn it around.. but his splits haven’t even been worth keeping him for much longer.

    Not saying it has 0 effect but i think it’s not the main reason for what we are seeing as far as offense goes. I do believe that decreased PEDs are the issue. Can aluminum bats be part of the issue, welllll maybe haha but i dont see it as a huge contributor.

    I agree on the PED’s ….But the parks are smaller because even with PED’s they can no longer hit the long HR’s some players used to hit before, that’s why i say that the theory might have some footing

    Who is Luis Torrens? Could they trade him for pitching?

    Shame,

    I agree with you. People would would be shocked if they knew how prevalent high school steroid use is.

    luis – I’m not much for my own gender but I always had to admire a woman that not only owned her own studio and production company but made herself the star of a series at age 40. I’m still surprised it was possible.. not even sure it is nowadays!

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

    She was also a class act, very shrewd business woman, excellent mother and wife. Tough act to follow

    Check up on Ida Lupino. She accomplished that and more, long before Lucille Ball.

    i hope they get a bat. if Sabathia is only out two starts then they can get by with CC, Kuroda, Nova, Hughes, and a fourth/fifth starter type

    Luis,

    I’d have to see stats backing that up. I dont think players hit shorter HRs than they did in the old days. I could be wrong but I would like to see numbers that back that up.

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

    I don’t have any stats to back my argument…Just the tendency to shorten the fences…And the mere fact that i don’t hear of many 500 ft home runs any more like the old days.

    All I know is that dude who took Nova downtown last night had a 50.00 taxi fare attached to it

    Torrens was born in 1996. For some reason, this makes me angry.

  85. luis June 29th, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    Pat,

    You think That homer was like 500 feet long?
