    Big splits for Floyd. I’d sit Arod and have Chavez 3B, Ibanez DH and Wise LF.

    Hey, I was right. :)

  2. blake July 1st, 2012 at 11:19 am

    I’d have interest in Garza if Theo would get real…..for the last 6 months he’s been leaking that the price is basically the same as Gio Gonzalez…..Garza has less upside and years less control than Gio…..so unless Theo drops his price he may not be able to trade him at all…..teams aren’t wiping out their systems for a guy with a 4 era in the NL central…..

  3. GreenBeret7 July 1st, 2012 at 11:23 am

    Can’t see why Peavy would be pissing and moaning about the Yankees approach. They didn’t ask him to hang three pitches over the middle of the plate. It only looked like they did. Does Peavy ask why Dunn looks to yank every pitch out of the park or Viciedo or Ramirez does it from the right side? Does he complain abot his home park where the ball jumps out on a daily basis?

  4. longtimefan July 1st, 2012 at 11:26 am

    Interesting No Arod again, guy gets more rest than anyone else in baseball yet gets paid the most. Not that he will be missed he has looked terrible all year–the result of over-paying in both money and years–handcuffs the team for at least five more years

    Unknown, in case you missed it, I answered your juvenility in the previous thread.

    :)

  6. blake July 1st, 2012 at 11:30 am

    The Yankees can’t do anything about Alex’s contract now…..but what they can do is try to keep him healthy so that they can get the most out of him.

  7. Yankee Trader July 1st, 2012 at 11:32 am

    Floyd’s regular season career stats vs Yankee batters:

    http://espn.go.com/mlb/player/.....avin-floyd

    Jacksquat-

    A-Rod hitting .091 vs Floyd, Grandy is the man.

    Did you peak before this lineup came out? :)

  8. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 1st, 2012 at 11:32 am

    I’d say that if Arod is resting again, there’s a reason for it. Joe doesn’t typically rest players just because they’re not getting the job done. Let’s hope it’s nothing serious.

  9. Niblick July 1st, 2012 at 11:34 am

    Longtime – I’m not sure why you’re saying that. Arod has played in 75 of the 77 games the Yankees have played so far this year. That would project out to 158 games. Not exactly getting more rest than anybody. He’s started 54 games at 3B, started 19 as DH and came into 2 games that he didn’t start. And besides, why are you complaining about him not being in the lineup if you don’t like the way he’s been playing?

  10. Yankee Trader July 1st, 2012 at 11:38 am

    Until later. Have a great day and stay cool.

    Go Yankees. One wish for today-more homers by Yankees with men on base!

  11. yankee21 July 1st, 2012 at 11:40 am

    These are the type of match ups in which Arod should get the day off. Good move by Joe G.
    Chavez can handle playing a few times per week, just everyday is not good.

    Arod is no longer a feared middle of the order bat. However he can still be productive, .280, 25 HR, 85 RBI kind of guy. These are good numbers for a 3B.

    NY needs to find another bat.

  12. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 1st, 2012 at 11:43 am

    YF – don’t know whether or not you go it, but I left you a music link last night. Great site for any song you want to hear.

  13. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 1st, 2012 at 11:44 am

    Chavez was such a good signing. Such a good, good, signing.

  14. yankee21 July 1st, 2012 at 11:51 am

    trisha; Chavez was one of several 1B/3B candidates that Cashman had available to sign. Others of note were Betemit and Wiggington.

    The good thing about Chavez is he actually wanted reduced workload as he is a realist with respect to his physical limitations at this stage in his career.

    For me, no credit to Cashman on this, all the credit goes to Chavez wanting to come to NY and play for a winner. Always liked his game as an A, glad he can still perform reasonably well for the Yankees.

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

    You get credit for one thing. You’re not the type that waits for other to piss and moan about nothing. You believe in being first in line. Maybe you can be the first to hit the door running when NYYs take the lead.

  16. Bo knows July 1st, 2012 at 12:02 pm

    And Chavez is five mil cheaper than Wiggington but hey, don’t let it spoil the narrative.

  17. blake July 1st, 2012 at 12:02 pm

    Just looking at the standing and run differentials…..the Yanks have scored 369 runs this season…which is only the 3rd most in the AL east and is the fewest the Yanks have scored on July 1 in over 10 years. Only given up 310 though which is really good and the 3rd best in the AL

  18. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 1st, 2012 at 12:05 pm

    yankee21, the interesting thing is that fans didn’t want Betemit back (at least some of the lohudfans anyway). Wiggington has been on a little bit of a decline over the past several years and who knows what kind of money he would have wanted.

    When I talked about Chavez being a good signing it’s more because I always thought he was a great player. So when the Yanks picked him up I was so happy for us. I was hoping they’d bring him back this year also, and they did.

    I wasn’t really thinking about Cashman at all, but I have to say that he’s the one who gave us Colon and Garcia, and also Andruw Jones. I think he’s picked up some pretty nice veterans for the Yanks.

  19. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 1st, 2012 at 12:06 pm

    Bo – I mentioned the same thing about Wiggington.

    :)

  20. 86w183 July 1st, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    It takes special twisted logic to conclude that a GM gets no credit for guys he signs.

    No credit for overpaying, ok I’ll give you that. But one of the most important things that any GM can do is fill voids as inexpensively as possible.

  21. yankee21 July 1st, 2012 at 12:08 pm

    And Chavez is five mil cheaper than Wiggington but hey, don’t let it spoil the narrative….

    How many games did Wigginton miss over the last 5 years due to injuries?

    Of course Chavez was cheaper but it doesn’t mean it was some grand signing he had other options.

  22. 86w183 July 1st, 2012 at 12:08 pm

    I had a man crush on Wigginton for 2008-10. I’m over it.

  23. yankee21 July 1st, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    86: No credit for overpaying, ok I’ll give you that. But one of the most important things that any GM can do is fill voids as inexpensively as possible.

    Absolutely agree. Chavez fills that bill, when he is healthy. How healthy was he in 2011, are you willing to bet he will last 2012 in fine shape?

  24. UnKnown July 1st, 2012 at 12:22 pm

    Trixie – if you think Randy and I are the only ones who ever call you out then you’re more clueless then I ever even thought. Your presence more often than not creates a constant war between you and yes many others. But whatever, just keep telling yourself whatever you need to do get you through the day. Like I said its funny so enjoy it. By the way I hardly even respond to all your drivel and like I said I need to take a number anyways to do so.

    As far as you continually trying to dig on what is going on in my personally life you can shelve the life coach nonsense. It’s an awesome life and seeing you constantly get destroyed on this blog makes it even better. Hahahahaha

    See ya now you hear little buddy…

  25. yankee21 July 1st, 2012 at 12:29 pm

    I had a man crush on Wigginton for 2008-10. I’m over it…

    Never that infatuated with him. Merely pointed him out as one of several options that could have been signed.

    A dead red FB hitter. The key is to get ahead of him and throw him slow stuff away, similiar approach to handling TEX when he is batting LH.

  26. Bo knows July 1st, 2012 at 12:31 pm

    Of course Chavez was cheaper but it doesn’t mean it was some grand signing he had other options.

    The other option being Betemit, as a 3B? All Betemit has is a 3B glove. He can play at 3B. As I said, narrative.

    Just speak out, “I hate Cashman, I want him fired”.

    Doing convoluted reasoning doesn’t wash.

    Eppley is Cashman’s Dumpster Diver and does a superb job. It’s called ML scouting. There’s a whole stats department that Cashman set up to shake out anomalies. Swisher was the first and most successful candidate.

  27. GreenBeret7 July 1st, 2012 at 12:34 pm

    What I miss about OTD’s of the past is the true legends of the game playing in the games. There’s so few left.

  28. bruceb July 1st, 2012 at 12:36 pm

    Alex is still only 36…yet it feels as though he should part of Old Timers’ Day already.

  29. yankee21 July 1st, 2012 at 12:37 pm

    Bo knows;

    I have spoken out repeatedly I believe Cashman is a lousy GM, what are you missing?
    Personally, I don’t hate the guy, I don’t know him. Do you?

    Explain why you think he is such a good GM?

  30. GreenBeret7 July 1st, 2012 at 12:38 pm

    Playing at a position like third base doesn’t mean they can play third base. Wigginton is no more of a third baseman than Betemit is.

  31. mick July 1st, 2012 at 12:40 pm

    yogi and whitey make me cry….

  32. blake July 1st, 2012 at 12:42 pm

    “Explain why you think he is such a good GM?”

    I think he has flaws….but at some point you have to look at the scoreboard….thr Yankees have missed the playoffs one time in almost two decades…..there isnt another GM cllse to that record. Sire the payroll helps….but other teams have high payrolls too. Cashman has to get some credit for actually doing what hes supposed to with the money which is to win every year.

  33. randy l. July 1st, 2012 at 12:42 pm

    “What I miss about OTD’s of the past is the true legends of the game playing in the games.”

    when posada, jeter, and mariano get there the old timers game will get a shot in the arm.

    in the meantime, i think they should do an old geezer section and let fans as old as you in for free.

    though they should pin a seat number to your shirt in case you can’t find your way back from getting a beer and hot dog.

  34. cofuzz July 1st, 2012 at 12:44 pm

    4 NYY,
    Are you out there?
    North Fresno is the best part of town, for the most part., as you probably know.
    Where’d you go off to?
    Sounds like you had some pretty awesome minor league experiences!
    Since I came here in 2005, I’ve seen Matt Cain, Tim Lincecum, Buster Posey, Brian Wilson, and several other future Giants come through.
    Some former Yankees too — Justin Christian, George Kontos, and Chris Stewart are the players I remember seeing.

    Tell your brother to watch me on ABC-30! :-)

  35. UnKnown July 1st, 2012 at 12:45 pm

    Off to work peeps. Enjoy another special Yankee day guys.

  36. yankeefeminista July 1st, 2012 at 12:47 pm

    Creatures greeting O’Neill, lol and roll call!

    Mick, me too.

    Trisha, thanks for the song link!

  37. yankee21 July 1st, 2012 at 12:47 pm

    Blake; your reasoning is sound as usual, can’t argue with it, except the payroll covers up a lot of his mistakes.

    Do you like the job he is doing on the development part? Do you like the progress being made by the minor leaguers? How about the quality and quantity of minor league coaches? How about having guys like Gardner arrive at the big league level with bullet like speed but cannot bunt? How about guys like Nunez not being able to field?

  38. Bo knows July 1st, 2012 at 12:48 pm

    —————-
    That’s it. No need to repeat. Blake summed it up.

    And I won’t even talk about the A Rod and Soriano contract handicaps that were foisted on Cashman. Does Soriano look good this year? Sure he does. Preplanning for fluke injuries isn’t good management.

  39. yankeefeminista July 1st, 2012 at 12:49 pm

    Guidry’s in pitching. Our missing lefty who can fill in till C and Andy get back. ;)

  40. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 1st, 2012 at 12:51 pm

    Unknown – you are certainly a mystery. Whatever your demons, I wish you the best with them.

    Seriously. That kind of nastiness comes from deep within.

    Oh well. I’ll keep rooting on the Yankees and you just do whatever floats your boat.

    I don’t particularly care what you think about my posts. If you are driven to read them despite being so bothered by them, that’s on you. If it kills you to have people compliment me, that’s on you.

    On the other hand – I don’t even know you! So I can’t say I have issues with anything you say or do – other than your constant criticism of me. But if that’s something that makes you feel better, that’s on you also.

    So there you have it, sluggo! Do your thing, whatever it is.

    :)

  41. blake July 1st, 2012 at 12:52 pm

    21,

    I think those are some fair points….I’ve said many times that ideally I’d like to see the Yanks move Cashman to President of baseball ops position and then hire a GM that specializes in the areas where Cashman struggles. Nobody is perfect…..Cashman is great at certain things and his track record in others isn’t as good…..would love to keep him on board and at the same time maybe get a fresh voice with a different way of looking at development.

  42. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 1st, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    “It’s an awesome life and seeing you constantly get destroyed on this blog makes it even better. Hahahahaha”

    Unknown, I don’t think you need a degree in psychology to see that this is indicative of a troubled person.

    Again, you used to be a really nice guy. Whatever caused the change I don’t know.

    So pummel away if it adds dimension to your life, killer.

    I think I can say without hesitation that I’ve been pummeled by bigger and better.

    :D

  43. GreenBeret7 July 1st, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    Ricky Henderson dogs it down the first base line.

  44. Dionysius Thelxinoe July 1st, 2012 at 12:57 pm

    Trisha, when all is said and done, all you care about is that (1) the Yankees win, and (2) the Red Sox lose. And you never waver from that.

    That’s why I enjoy ALL your posts!!!

  45. yankeefeminista July 1st, 2012 at 12:59 pm

    Can we please cease and desist at least on OTD? Thanks. :)

  46. yankee21 July 1st, 2012 at 1:01 pm

    Got to sign off, just two lasting shots;

    Have never blamed Cashman on Arod signing. Out of his control. He had the right approach in that chain of events. I also liked how he handled Jeter’s negotiations.

    Soriano is a strawman arguement nobody brought up that with respect to Cashman.

    Also the Tex factor, that is not on him; he thought as did legions of Yankee fans they were signing an elite hitter, instead they have gotten an elite defensive 1B with serious power that is now hitting in the .240s over the last two seasons. Not on Cashman.

    Got to go. Go Yankees , Go Hughes.

    ——–

    Blake, I respect your baseball acumen, your points are always well thought out, but in the case of Cashman, I disagree. When stacked up against his peers, and factoring in the “win now” requirement, I think he’s done well.

    No question like any GM, he’s had some awful signings. But it’s awful in hindsight, which we have and he doesn’t.

    JMO.

  48. randy l. July 1st, 2012 at 1:07 pm

    “Can we please cease and desist at least on OTD? Thanks. ”

    ok, i admit that was going too far telling gb7 to pin his seat number on his shirt.

    i juts think it would hurt pinning it on killer.

  49. yankeefeminista July 1st, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    By now, shouldn’t Killer be too blitzed to notice. ;)

    More fun this way :arrow:

    DT, thank you. Geeze, that’s the alpha and the omega. Why people need to complicate things beyond that is beyond me!

  51. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 1st, 2012 at 1:18 pm

    YF – have you ever been to an Old Timers Day? If so, was it better attended than what we see today?

    For anyone who watches these year after year, is this one any different in attendance, as far as you can see?

  52. yankeefeminista July 1st, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    Trisha, I have attended many OTD’s. I can’t exactly remember what the attendance was like when I was a kid. However, in recent memory there are always empty seats. People sort of filter in throughout the day. But I am sure today the heat was a big factor in keeping people away today. Also July 4th holiday may be a factor. There are a lot of people who are on vacation. Still it’s a great experience. And the fans that are there are very vocal and communal.
