Yankees get three starters in All-Star Game

Posted by: Brian Heyman - Posted in Misc on Jul 01, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The starting lineups are out for July 10 in Kansas City. Derek Jeter is now a 13-time All-Star, although he bowed out last year. Robinson Cano will be at second for the third straight year. He’s a four-time pick. Curtis Granderson is a three-time All-Star and will start for the second straight year. CC Sabathia was picked for the sixth time, but he’s on the DL.

    YES!!!

    I’ll be glad when another AL team makes it to the WS (namely the Yanks) because I’m not sold on Washington as an AS manager! We need to bring the win back to the AL!

  2. yankeefeminista July 1st, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    Congrats to the Pinstriped All Stars! And to Melky! and the other players voted in.

  3. yankeefeminista July 1st, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    trisha, answered you in last two threads. Hard to keep up. (pant pant).

  4. randy l. July 1st, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    yankeefeminista-

    not many people know this , but gb7 has had killer trained to be an official working dog so killer can go anywhere gb7 can go, restaurants, airplanes, ballgames, whatever, though it does attract attention though when gb7 has a seizure and killer races back with an emergency beer and pizza.

    Yes, Peavy was whining. And any of those home runs yesterday were home runs in any ballpark.

  6. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 1st, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    Wouldn’t it be awesome if we get some pitching in there. I would love to have Sori named as a pitcher. I am going to check out closer stats. I’m thinking that there are certainly closers with better records, especially since Sori didn’t start off the season closing.

    YF, thanks. Saw your response.

    :)

    randy, every beer and pizza is an emergency mission.

  8. tomingeorgia July 1st, 2012 at 1:39 pm

    I can’t see the old timer’s game down here, but it sucks to be older than almost every one of them. Killer! Beer and pizza! Now!

  9. luis July 1st, 2012 at 1:39 pm

    Hello everyone,

    About Cashman…No doubt that he started the rebuilding of the farm…No doubt that he has had good FA agent signings…He has had some good trades as well…But he makes too many many mistakes as well…I think he should step down and move sideways and allow new blood to take the helm…Someone with a more small market mentality and with a better knowledge of the player development process…He is a great general strategist, just not very good at executing IMO.

  10. randy l. July 1st, 2012 at 1:39 pm

    “randy, every beer and pizza is an emergency mission.”

    i’m dog sitting a great dane right now. maybe i’ll try feeding him pizza and beer so he doesn’t decide to eat me instead.

  11. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 1st, 2012 at 1:40 pm

    Figured Jim Johnson would be right up there, and he is. 23 out of 24 saves. Same for Chris Perez. Fernando Rodney is third, with 22 out of 23.

    But check this out.

    Johnson – ERA 1.3; WHIP .78

    Perez – ERA 2.76; WHIP 1.02

    Rodney – ERA 1.04; WHIP .75.

    Now THAT’S the kind of relief I want to see in the ASG, especially Johnson and Rodney!

    I can’t help it, I think that Washington is an idiot as a manager. However it’s tough to argue with success. But he seems to be in slow gear all the time. I want more energy at the ASG. Because I want HFA back in the AL, dammit!

  12. We Want Mo Mo July 1st, 2012 at 1:42 pm

    This Meredith has absolutely no inflection in her voice. Irritating.

  13. mick July 1st, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    But he makes too many many mistakes as well…
    =============================
    Luis,
    Other than Montero, what other big mistakes has Cash made?

  14. mick July 1st, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    -not saying Montero was a mistake-

    A Great Dane? A dog that size would eat your house and your car. Serve up Nure Karloff. That cure him.

  16. mick July 1st, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    Leave Meredith alone…

  17. mick July 1st, 2012 at 1:46 pm

    Saw Bull Durham again last night, sappy but still a great baseball movie…

  18. GreenBeret7 July 1st, 2012 at 1:46 pm

    That ***will*** cure him of everything. Showed a picture of her to Killer” and threatened him that he might get shipped off to her. He got sick and curled up in a ball in the corner and whimpered all night.

  19. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 1st, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    Hi luis!

    The only problem with a small market mentality is that the Yanks are in a big market…

  20. mick July 1st, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    I think he should step down and move sideways
    ==============================
    where have we heard this before?

  21. luis July 1st, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    Mick,

    Vasquez twice, Weaver, The way he rushed generation trey, The way he screw up with Joba. Even though i liked it at the moment, i think Tex is going to be on that same category. The blunder of not realizing where the real needs of this team were this off season. Giambi, Randy Johnson, and so on….

    The thing is that he has had an inordinate amount of money to cover his blunders, therefore he has been able to scramble and fix things..I think he had the right strategy, he is just not the man to execute it.

  22. luis July 1st, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    Yes Mick you just heard it from Randy and Blake to name a few. Maybe I am a suck puppet?

  23. mick July 1st, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    The blunder of not realizing where the real needs of this team were this off season.
    =================================================
    You mean the team in 1st place?

  24. Bo knows July 1st, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    Other than Montero, what other big mistakes has Cash made?
    ———————-

    On Montero, I have strong feelings both ways.

    Hated the Granderson trade, still do even though both have blown through projections. I kept remembering Jackson blowing out the FSL one year, which is really hard to do. And Jackson sure is pretty nifty in the OF

    Overall, I’m on the Cashman side as some people have noticed. Everyone who does, makes mistakes. The crunch is, do they repeat those mistakes. Do they make hard choices?

    I’ll give you one – Cashman backed Torre way past “Date of Expiry”. When Torre went over the top with his ego, Cashman stopped.

  25. tomingeorgia July 1st, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    Mr. mick,
    I’ll take the pleasure Cashman has bought me thought the New York Yankees since the 1990s, however he’s done it. When it’s time for him to go, I’ll be sorry.

  26. luis July 1st, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    With the budget constraints and so many long term contracts ( some of them really bad ), they will have to act like a small market team for at least three years.

  27. randy l. July 1st, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    “A Great Dane? A dog that size would eat your house and your car. Serve up Nure Karloff. That cure him.”

    even a great dane couldn’t bite through that leather.

  28. mick July 1st, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    Vasquez twice, Weaver,…
    ===================
    how long has he been here? a long time….
    not enough “mistakes” to label him a failure.

  29. GreenBeret7 July 1st, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    What a joke some of you are. You complain about NYYs not going after every big name on the block and then knock Cashman/Steinbrenner for not spending more.

  30. luis July 1st, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    Mick,

    Not recognizing that the pitching was our strong suit and that they needed to address the lineup was a mayor blunder…It is the pitching with all of it’s injuries that has the team in 1st place…With the help of none of the pieces from the trade that were supposed to bolster the rotation.

  31. mick July 1st, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    ==========================
    mr tom,
    i don’t think you have to worry as Hal seems to like Cash and Joe and they whould be here for a long time.
    in fact, both of them could set records for yankee longetivity, they are going nowhere, to the disappointment of the minority.

  32. Bo knows July 1st, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    ———————–
    Woah, woah, Giambi and Johnson were Big George’s along with Sheffield. Cashman wanted Beltran and Vladdy. Giambi was the shiny bauble, Nick Johnson was a hell of a ball player pre injuries and the peds (He gained forty pounds of muscle, one off season)

    I was on board for both Vazquez trades and even Weaver. Doing the numbers it was hard not to back the trades.

  33. mick July 1st, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    With the help of none of the pieces from the trade that were supposed to bolster the rotation.
    =================
    short term thinking.

  34. ZMAN July 1st, 2012 at 2:01 pm

    “You mean the team in 1st place?”

    The problem was never this year, it was beyond. The team could have done nothing this winter and still been the best team in the AL East.

    The team is simply not positioned well for the near-future until the Charleston kids are ready (if they even pan out, with our track record, they’ll either be traded or bust). They have many key impending FAs, a dry farm system in the upper levels, and a new budget that is coming which prevents them from addressing problems via FA like they used to. If the team could just sign Hamels and Hamilton this winter, they would be no complaints. They won’t be able to and their alternate solutions do not appear good, again, because of the state of their farm post-Montero.

  35. GreenBeret7 July 1st, 2012 at 2:01 pm

    Johnson/Rodriguez were brought n because GMS wanted the big names. Weaver was a good young pitcher. He just fell apart. Vazquez bombed on his last tour, but in the first season, he spent the second half pitching hurt. Has he made bad trades, or signings? Yes, but so has every GM in baseball…many a lot worse than anything Cashman ever did.

  36. mick July 1st, 2012 at 2:03 pm

    Not recognizing that the pitching was our strong suit and that they needed to address the lineup was a mayor blunder…
    ==========================
    you knew hughes and nova would comeback?
    kuroda and andy were guarantees?
    you mean the lineup that is in 1st place and leads the majors in HR’s?
    our bullpen has been our MVP anyway…

  37. luis July 1st, 2012 at 2:04 pm

    Mick,

    Quite the contrary…At this point you don’t know what you have in Pineda…The smart thing long term would have been to trade for a bat or stand pat

  38. mick July 1st, 2012 at 2:04 pm

    ===================================
    Then you better not put any money down on this team as they are about to fall apart.

  39. luis July 1st, 2012 at 2:05 pm

    Thank you Zman spot on

  40. mick July 1st, 2012 at 2:05 pm

    …At this point you don’t know what you have in Pineda…
    ========================
    short term meaning the verdict is far from in on this deal.

  41. mick July 1st, 2012 at 2:06 pm

    luis you are in the minority in your thinking…sorry.

  42. GreenBeret7 July 1st, 2012 at 2:07 pm

    Montero isn’t offering much this year. It’s not just the park, either. Hard to blame the park when he’s barely getting the ball into the outfield. Seagar is hitting better.

  43. randy l. July 1st, 2012 at 2:12 pm

    “…At this point you don’t know what you have in Pineda…”

    actually if the yankees train him as a reliever from the get go when he starts his rehab he’ll make a hell of an 8th inning guy or even closer.

    that motion has no chance of being injury free as a starter.

    If you are at work steer clear ofAuthentic Louis Vuitton Outlet Store wasting your money in hand luggage or purse, just go to the baggage or wholesale purses wholesale. The majority of customers take advantage of these fantastic offers good discounts on a wide variety of places, even though I also found a wonderful bag for my baby, she just does not believe that I have bought this kind of affordable.
