Wow, I dont think I have ever actually complained about a lineup…but Jones batting cleanup? I would rather have ANYONE else in the lineup batting cleanup except Stewart and maybe Ichiro. Im hoping Jones makes me look stupid for saying that though
It is what it is with all our injuries – a National League lineup. There aren’t going to be any blowouts so the emphasis – as it was last night – is on starting pitching. CC may well have to go the whole nine today. And if anyone is up to it, he is.
Need 8 innings outta CC, with Robertson and Soriano probably being unavailable. Even if Both claim to be ready, they should Not be used. Big picture. Anything less than 8 innings from CC, brings on the Girardi mix-n-match spectacle.(Hands covering eyes).
YankeeshavenotyetplacedA-Rodon tradewaivers Published on August 29th, 2012 Written by: Mike Axisa
Hundreds of players have already been passed through revocable trade waivers this month, but the Yankees have yet to run Alex Rodriguez though the process according to Ken Davidoff. A-Rod is currently sidelined with a broken hand and given the five years and $114M left on his contract, no team would claim him anyway. We can dream about the Dodgers taking on his contract, but I suspect they’ve already satisfied their quota for nine-figure commitments this month.
I believe Andru Jones has just a few games left to show NY if he can contribute anything.
My sense is NY held onto Jones for fear he would fall into the hands of some team they will need to beat in September to secure the division, or in October to move onto the next round. He’s the kind of guy who can be dangerous with a bat in his hand when he is seeing the ball well.
Let’s hope he provides some positive drama before the year is up, beginning with today, because his act is really getting stale.
A. Jones is on his last legs.
Physically his body is breaking down and I don’t see the situation improving.
His defense is getting worse because his body won’t allow him to move quickly.
Appears his bat has slowed done a lot since the season began.
The sad part is that there is nothing available once the roster expand. There is not one position player in AAA or AA (other than Nunie and Cervelli) who will ever play more than a handful of games in the majors.
Plenty of players have cleared waivers. Trades are still possible. The Yankee farm system is Not the only way to upgrade this team. Personally, I like Harriston\Mets, but I do Not know if he was claimed.
Jones did so well against Boston, I had hoped he could carry it through. But they will be seeing a lot of lefties coming up, so maybe the more regular play will help? Who knows? Just have to keep our fingers crossed on this one.
Boy, if the Yankees do make it through the rest of the season still sitting atop their division, don’t we all really have to tip our hats or something? I would think with the injuries to the particular players, they’re really doing a heck of a job.
It’s been a strange season from the get go, for me.
OK – possibly Adams and/or Joseph, because of their position, although neither one will ever play a game with the Yankees. Mustelier is 29 (at least) and not doing particularly well at AAA. Mesa will be 26 next year and is still at AA. Almonte just isn’t good enough.
