Yankees pregame: Waiting on Tex and a lineup

Posted by: Brian Heyman - Posted in Misc on Aug 03, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Brian Heyman here for Chad today. No Yankees lineup yet. Joe Girardi was waiting for an update on the state of Mark Teixeira’s left wrist from a doctor and whether he could take batting practice. And Teixeira is indeed giving batting practice a try right now at a little before 5.

Tonight’s starter is CC Sabathia, and he has owned the Mariners, winning seven straight starts with a 0.88 ERA dating to 2009. But Sabathia wasn’t so great his last time out, allowing six runs and eight hits in six innings against the Red Sox. His weight gain was something that came up after he was allowing a lot of hits the final two months of last season and had a 6.23 ERA vs. Detroit in the ALDS. But his fitness is a non-factor right now, according to Girardi.

“His conditioning is great,” Girardi said. “I’m very pleased with where he’s at there. And I’ve never seen it as a huge issue for me. This is a guy who’s won 60 games in three years. It’s pretty hard to complain. But obviously you worry about long-term health and long-term health of a pitcher’s body. But that has not been an issue.

“This guy works hard. He’s a true professional. He’s prepared every time he goes out there. For me, it’s just like any other pitcher you have. If he locates, he’s going to pitch well.”

Joba Chamberlain struggled in his first Yankees outing of the season, allowing two runs and four hits in 1 2/3 innings Wednesday against the Orioles. He had been away from major-league mounds for 14 months or so.

“I think it could take a little for him to get on track and be what we expect him to be because he’s been out so long,” Girardi said. “Just like any starter or reliever starting a season, or position player, you’re not sure how they’re going to start, if they’re going to have a great start or if they’re going to have a slow start. So I think you’re going to have to have some patience.”

A-Rod is here. “Just working out,” Girardi said, “doing as much as he can basically not using the one hand, conditioning, trying to work his legs. But that’s about it. He’ll throw and do things like that. But as far as using his left hand, he can’t do much there.”

Ichiro Suzuki spoke to some of his former teammates on the field, but he indicated his emotions aren’t as high facing them as they were in Seattle right after the trade went down.

    Asked if Cliff Lee has been claimed and pulled back Ruben Amaro said he can’t say but doesnt matter “he’s not going anywhere”

  2. Bret The Hitman August 3rd, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    The Dodgers? They just picked up Blanton.

    The Rangers picked up Dempster (who the Yankees were in on).

    It could be the Yankees who claimed Cliff Lee.

    What other teams gunned for starters at the deadline?

    Cliff lee did NOT clear waivers

    I didn’t think he would.
    ———————

    Questions become, who claimed him and can they work out a deal?

    My guess is that he got to the Yankees and in the end they won’t.

    Now the biggie becomes – if the Phillies and Yankees can’t work out a deal (and if NY is not on Lee’s NTL) will the Phillies let Lee go for nothing rather than bring back his contract. And if so, how does that impact the Yankees.

    The Yankees, assuming they’re the team, could have put in the claim to block the Phillies from entering trade talks with the Rangers and have no interest in offering a deal for Lee. So if Philly doesn’t get what they want they could just say “ok” and saddle the Yankees with Lee – not the worst thing that could happen to them, but it could deeply impact future plans.

  4. Tackelberry August 3rd, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    Don’t be surprised if it was the Red Sox who claimed him.

  5. Bret The Hitman August 3rd, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    If the Yankees claim Cliff Lee and Philly pulls him back…

    What happens if the Yankees claim Cliff Lee a second time and the yankees happen to be on his no-trade list?

  6. blake August 3rd, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    “What happens if the Yankees claim Cliff Lee a second time and the yankees happen to be on his no-trade list?”

    the Yankees aren’t on his no trade list….and the Phillies couldn’t pull him back the 2nd time.

  7. blake August 3rd, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    The Red Sox need pitching but they have so much dead money on the books I have a hard time believing they’d risk adding more……the PHillies are going to pull him back though either way.

  8. Bronx Jeers August 3rd, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    Martin’s catching CC.

  9. Bret The Hitman August 3rd, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    I know the Phillies can’t pull him back a second time.

    What happens when a player on waivers is claimed a second time and that player is on the claimer’s no-trade list?

  10. Nick in SF August 3rd, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    Does Stewart have good numbers vs. Felix for tomorrow?

  11. luis August 3rd, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    Blake,

    But a lot of that money is coming off the books ( Ortiz comes to mind ), I think they could have claimed him

  12. Bret The Hitman August 3rd, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    I bet Josh Beckett clears waivers.

  13. blake August 3rd, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    “What happens when a player on waivers is claimed a second time and that player is on the claimer’s no-trade list?”

    the player gets to choose if they want to go or not I assume.

  14. luis August 3rd, 2012 at 5:12 pm

    Nick,

    I don’t think Stewart has very good numbers against anybody ;)

    Although, he has doen a very good job with the stick for us this season

  15. blake August 3rd, 2012 at 5:12 pm

    “But a lot of that money is coming off the books ( Ortiz comes to mind ), I think they could have claimed him”

    yea but they still have a ton of long term money….maybe you’re right…they need pitching badly

  16. Bret The Hitman August 3rd, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    Blake,

    But there is no trade, there is just a claim so I don’t understand how a claim can be equated with a trade under a no trade provision in a legal contract.

  17. DaveD August 3rd, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    JonHeymanCBS

    #dodgers pick up the $2.9M left on blanton. #pocketchange for them

    ————

    Remember when that used to be pocket change for us?

  18. Nick in SF August 3rd, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    No, the Popeye’s will make a waiver claim Beckett to keep him in Boston.

  19. Bret The Hitman August 3rd, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    I remember when Giambi had a blanket no trade provision and the yankees put him on waivers. I’m pretty sure that any team who claimed him would’ve been stuck with his contract and he could not block a claim since a claim is not a trade.

  20. Bret The Hitman August 3rd, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    edit: any team who claimed him a second time.

  21. Bronx Jeers August 3rd, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    I’m sure Girardi’s tired of answering questions about Martin not catching CC.

    And Martin does have 6 hits in his last 7 games which is basically raking for him.

  22. blake August 3rd, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    “But there is no trade, there is just a claim so I don’t understand how a claim can be equated with a trade under a no trade provision in a legal contract.”

    because the no trade really means that you can’t assign a contract to that team without the patient’s consent…..whether it be via trade or on waivers.

  23. Nick in SF August 3rd, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    That reminds me, why haven’t we claimed Giambi yet?

  24. tomingeorgia August 3rd, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    blake,
    The second waiver would be euivalent to a release.

  25. Jerkface August 3rd, 2012 at 5:20 pm

    A trade isn’t really a trade either, its the assignment of contracts from 1 team to another, the same as if a team has to assign the contract to another team on a waiver claim.

  26. Bret The Hitman August 3rd, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    Blake,

    But the player is not a free agent. The team is claiming his contract, nobody is assigning it to them against his will. I would think the waiver process removes some player protections and exposes them to teams on their no-trade lists. I think MLB would want to provide incentive to teams willing to take on bad contracts. To block teams who are willing to pay bad contracts puts to much control in the player’s hands and actually exposes them to risk by forcing the current team to keep them when that team might be under financial strain.

  27. Jerkface August 3rd, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    And even if there is no ‘trade’, the team who claims the player on waivers has to pay the other team a waiver claim compensation! So it will always be a ‘trade’. I believe its $20,000

  28. Jerkface August 3rd, 2012 at 5:23 pm

    But the player is not a free agent. The team is claiming his contract, nobody is assigning it to them against his will.

    This isn’t the correct logic. First of all, of course it is against the players will. Second, the act of giving the player to a claiming team is the assignment of their contract to that team.

  29. Bret The Hitman August 3rd, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    The Phillies wouldn’t be giving the player (Cliff Lee in this case) to a claiming team (on his no trade list in this scenario). They are putting him on waivers for ANY team to claim his contract. Teams hold the right to claim any player on waivers. That’s the claim process IMHO.

  30. tomingeorgia August 3rd, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    The Nationals looking very tough today. When did Washington last have the second best record in baseball?

  31. Jerkface August 3rd, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    The Phillies wouldn’t be giving the player (Cliff Lee in this case) to a claiming team (on his no trade list in this scenario). They are putting him on waivers for ANY team to claim his contract.

    Yes they are. The idea of waivers is that you are trying to get trade assignment waivers, meaning the right to trade a player post deadline. Other teams can put a claim on the player. In that case, the Phillies choose to assign the player if they want, for compensation or not.

    It would still be Team A assigning the contract to Team B. The reason is there are specific rules regarding how salaries and bonuses and options and junk are calculated for contract assignments.

  32. Nick in SF August 3rd, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    If Cliff Lee texts another dead deer pic to Ian Kinsler, does that mean he’s staying in Philly?

  33. bruceb August 3rd, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    Good news (at least I hope it proves to be good news). Tex is in lineup and starting at first!!!!

  34. Jerkface August 3rd, 2012 at 5:35 pm

    @jay_jaffe

    thx, good to know RT @joe_sheehan: 10/5 and blanket NTC would both override claim — player has to approve. I don’t know about a partial NTC

  43. look what I found August 10th, 2014 at 1:30 am

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    I intended to post you one little word to finally thank you so much again for these pleasing techniques you have documented here. It was really incredibly generous of people like you to offer publicly what many individuals might have marketed for an ebook to earn some dough on their own, most importantly considering the fact that you might have done it if you ever desired. The tactics also worked as the fantastic way to fully grasp most people have the same dreams just like my very own to know the truth somewhat more on the subject of this problem. I am sure there are some more pleasant times up front for people who find out your website.
