    considering this is the biggest game of the season to date….yea I want Jeter at SS

  2. mick September 1st, 2012 at 11:02 am

    jeter the gamer demanded no rest for the big game, all it would take is a nuney error to kill his confidence, smart move by jete, advising joe g.

  3. MTU September 1st, 2012 at 11:03 am

    Considering this is the biggest game of the year I really don’t want Jones at cleanup.

    P.S. I don’t really think this the biggest game of the year.

    :)

  4. LGY September 1st, 2012 at 11:03 am

    Nunez over Pearce. Nice!

  5. mick September 1st, 2012 at 11:04 am

    I can see Andy, Alex and Tex in Balt. next weekend.

  6. astrocityfan September 1st, 2012 at 11:04 am

    Would have liked to see Adams over nix at third

  7. mick September 1st, 2012 at 11:05 am

    AndrewMarchand Jeter actually told Girardi he was good to play short. Hence, Nunez at DH.
    =======================
    told ya…

  8. MTU September 1st, 2012 at 11:05 am

    By the way Vincent you’re doing an excellent job.

    Just thought I’d mention that.

    If Chad leaves you have my vote to take over.

    ;)

  9. Against All Odds September 1st, 2012 at 11:06 am

    YF, QFT

    Odds, he looks ready to me, and I’ve seen quite a bit of him. I think he can handle 3B and can handle the bat, especially useful against LHP. Besides, what have they to lose?? Some Nix/McGeehee ABs??

    ——————

    Exactly nothing to lose at all and who knows they might actually find out they can trust the youth.

  10. mick September 1st, 2012 at 11:06 am

    BobKlap Girardi says “shouldn’t be long” before Pettitte returns to rotation. Also says “possibility” A-Rod could rejoin #Yankees against

  11. ButtSmacker September 1st, 2012 at 11:06 am

    Pearce should be at first… Swisher should be in RF and Andruw Jones should be sitting his lazy a.ss on the bench where he belongs.

  12. MTU September 1st, 2012 at 11:06 am

    Mick-

    The Cavalry will arrive soon.

    Just in time to win the battle ?

  13. J. Alfred Prufrock September 1st, 2012 at 11:07 am

    Nunez over Pearce. Nice!
    ///

    Oh, how they must have wrestled with their souls on that one.

  14. jacksquat September 1st, 2012 at 11:07 am

    Slightly interesting, this lineup has 6 guys (in a row) who can steal bases if they want to push it.

  15. MTU September 1st, 2012 at 11:07 am

    And save Ft. Apache the Bronx (NYS).

    :)

  16. 86w183 September 1st, 2012 at 11:08 am

    I like the call ups, but can’t get too excited about any lineup that has Andruw Jones hitting fourth and Russell Martin sixth.

    Andruw is 9-66 (.136) with 1 HR and 5 RBI since July 18.

    Martin had 6 RBI in the month of August in 83 AB.

  17. J. Alfred Prufrock September 1st, 2012 at 11:08 am

    Andruw is not “lazy”, his knees are shot.

  18. jacksquat September 1st, 2012 at 11:08 am

    ButtSmacker September 1st, 2012 at 11:06 am
    Pearce should be at first… Swisher should be in RF and Andruw Jones should be sitting his lazy a.ss on the bench where he belongs.

    I actually agree with this one.

  19. MTU September 1st, 2012 at 11:09 am

    I say we magnetize Jones’s bat.

    :)

  20. mick September 1st, 2012 at 11:10 am

    he obviously doesn’t trust pearce at 1b and is already convinced he can’t hit like mcheehee

  21. MTU September 1st, 2012 at 11:10 am

    or his feet.

    You choose.

    ;)

  22. 86w183 September 1st, 2012 at 11:10 am

    Pearce should be at first… Swisher should be in RF and Andruw Jones should be sitting his lazy a.ss on the bench where he belongs.

    I actually agree with this one.

    *******************************************************

    Me too.

    Andruw is lazy AND his knees are shot. That’s a bad exacta.

  23. mick September 1st, 2012 at 11:11 am

    if his knees are shot why is he in rf?

  24. MTU September 1st, 2012 at 11:11 am

    Thank God A-rod and Tex will be back soon.

  25. fantasygame101 September 1st, 2012 at 11:12 am

    andruw batting cleanup. I thought call up will solve this problem. Musteiler, mesa and adams would be good for this team.

  26. ButtSmacker September 1st, 2012 at 11:12 am

    mick says:

    ————–
    And he trusts Andruw’s glove in the OF?

  27. MTU September 1st, 2012 at 11:13 am

    Maybe Chen could toss the ball underhand to Andruw ?

    :)

  28. mick September 1st, 2012 at 11:14 am

    phelps is always up mtu he’s a pro.

  29. MTU September 1st, 2012 at 11:14 am

    I insulted Andruw enough with the reverse jinx that he’ll probably hit at least 2 dingers today.

    At least that’s the theory.

    :)

  30. mick September 1st, 2012 at 11:15 am

    in girardis mind he feels jones is essential to team success and is constantly looking to get hiim off….go figure, he can do whatever he wants, carte blanche. dangerous.

  31. Captain Clutch September 1st, 2012 at 11:15 am

    Nunez should be on the roster to DH. Not as an infielder to give Jeter or Cano a day off, that is Nix’s job. Jeter is smart and knows that they need to win games and can’t afford a Nunez errror. Jones in RF and Nunez in the infield would be a disaster. Now Girardi needs to wake up and realize that Nunez can’t field and they can’t give away games because of it.

  32. jacksquat September 1st, 2012 at 11:15 am

    I’d even rather have Nunez in RF over Andruw.

  33. MTU September 1st, 2012 at 11:16 am

    Mick-

    I hope he does us proud once again.

    I really like that kid and am pulling hard for him.

    He’s overcome a lot of adversity to get where he is now.

    :)

  34. Tar September 1st, 2012 at 11:16 am

    Big difference between the above and:

    Jeter
    Swish
    Cano
    Alex
    Tex
    Grandy
    Jones/Ibanez/?
    Ichiro
    Martin

    Even if we get swept, I still like our chances over the Rays and the O’s.

  35. mick September 1st, 2012 at 11:17 am

    what adversity has phelps overcome?

  36. yankeefeminista September 1st, 2012 at 11:17 am

    I for one am not giving up on the Druwster…

  37. mick September 1st, 2012 at 11:18 am

    yathink?

  38. Tar September 1st, 2012 at 11:19 am

    “yathink?”

    Substance? Maybe the toxic kind.

  39. J. Alfred Prufrock September 1st, 2012 at 11:20 am

    He’s not lazy, but he shouldn’t be batting cleanup for the New York Yankees.

    That’s on “lazy” Joe, who should have put more effort into lineup construction, and on “lazy” Cash, who could have used Montero to hit cleanup against Chen today.

  40. yankeefeminista September 1st, 2012 at 11:20 am

    Good to see that Alex is playing 3rd today in Tampa game.

    what adversity has phelps overcome?

    4 years and 500 innings in the minors.

  42. MTU September 1st, 2012 at 11:20 am

    Mick-

    Being yo-yo’ed back and forth between the Minors, BP, and Starting rotation.

    Being overlooked and unheralded. Being seen as an afterthought until recently.

    Being thrown into the the middle of numerous pressure-packed situations and coming up big when the odds were stacked against him.

    That kinda adversity.

    ;)

  43. J. Alfred Prufrock September 1st, 2012 at 11:21 am

    If the Yankees wanted Nunez to be a UOF, which is a dandy idea, they should have had the sense to give the boy some reps there in the minors. These people are poor planners.

  44. mick September 1st, 2012 at 11:21 am

    capt obvious

  45. mick September 1st, 2012 at 11:22 am

    4 years and 500 innings in the minors.
    ========================
    i thought that was approved at LoHud

  46. DONNYBROOK September 1st, 2012 at 11:23 am

    Yanks chose to “play short” 3 games, and LOST 2 of them. Smart

    Maybe he could toss Girardi underhand to him? WTH is a guy doing in the middle of the lineup who can barely walk? Didn’t Alex’s core issues teach the anything when it comes to hitting? My goodness.

  49. MTU September 1st, 2012 at 11:23 am

    Phelps and Nova both had to overcome a lot of the same things.

    I still hope to see Ivan shine again.

    Phelps has Novatude.

    Now Nova needs to show some Phelps.

    ;)

  50. Tar September 1st, 2012 at 11:24 am

    Context.

    Probably beyond your pea brain, but if you read the last line maybe a dim light might go off in that cavernous skull of yours.

  51. Shame Spencer September 1st, 2012 at 11:24 am

    I’m glad Jete is asking to get in there because I think it at least shows that the guys realized they need to string some wins together. Ideally you’d like Derek to get some rest this month but it doesn’t look like we’ll have as much of a cushion to rest guys as we hoped for.

  52. J. Alfred Prufrock September 1st, 2012 at 11:25 am

    Young pitching is often rough terrain. Those who hath he stomach for’it, reap the rewards.

    Those who don’t, reap faded Kevin Browns.

  53. mick September 1st, 2012 at 11:25 am

    the yanks will have to win in spite of girardi…he has obviously been painted into a corner where his “moves” are inconsequential…..his next move should be to insert alex, tex and andy into the lineup.

    then he doesn’t have to make any more moves…

  54. mick September 1st, 2012 at 11:26 am

    I’m glad Jete is asking to get in there because I think it at least shows that the guys realized they need to string some wins together.
    =========================
    too bad joe g can’t think of these things….jete’s 1st managerial move is a good one.

  55. longtimefan September 1st, 2012 at 11:28 am

    Jones at cleanup and playing right field, when are the yanks going to learn the old guys are out of gas, give the kids a chance, most other teams have and its paying off

  56. MTU September 1st, 2012 at 11:28 am

    No mick.

    Wasn’t looking for that.

    He’s just has had to handle more than his fair share of adversity IMO.

    I really appreciate and admire the way he’s handled it.

    And I sure as sh*t don’t take it for granted.

    I’m not sure that’s the best way to bring along a young Pitcher either.

    Throwin’ them into the deep end of the pool time and time again and expectin them not to drown doesn’t work for me either.

    But you’re right. It is better than pampering them.

    I look for controlled combustion. I did not see that with Phelps.

  57. Shame Spencer September 1st, 2012 at 11:28 am

    Our line up isn’t limited by Girardi as much as it is by the players on the bench.

    I wish Chavez could play everyday.

  58. mick September 1st, 2012 at 11:31 am

    I wish Chavez could play everyday.

    be careful what you wish for…

    Bugs & vermin have become increasingly resistant to pesticides ;).

  60. 86w183 September 1st, 2012 at 11:32 am

    Get a win Yanks!

    —————-

    Ideally, if Nunez isn’t playing SS he isn’t playing anywhere. But we just don’t have a lot of options…. you can’t play Chavy. You need Swish at 1B, giving you a sub-optimal outfield configuration. We have no 3B lol.

    I mean… it would have been nice if they got Nunez OF time when he was in the minors but I know we’re still supposed to be buying into this ‘heir to Jeter’ nonsense so why prepare him for other roles…… ugh.

  62. mick September 1st, 2012 at 11:34 am

    You need Swish at 1B, giving you a sub-optimal outfield configuration. We have no 3B lol.
    =================
    Why can’t Pearce play 1b? Swish > smiley in rf.

  63. MTU September 1st, 2012 at 11:35 am

    OK David show those humps who minimized and doubted you once again.

    Thems who treated you like a 2nd class citizen.

    You’ve overcome every obstacle placed in your path.

    In fact you’ve leaped over them.

    Time to bring it again. To summon it up. To overcome once again.

    I’m there with ya’ every step of the way.

    If you stumble I’ll be there to pick you up.

    I know you’ll give everything ya’ got.

    Go get ‘em Tiger !

    ;)

  64. Tar September 1st, 2012 at 11:37 am

    He can dish it, but when it comes his way well that’s a different story. Next thing you know he’s going to ask Trish to make me stop. Have a good day, I’ll catch up later.

    Sorry.

    Tar, yup, passive aggression at its finest. Not worth the trouble, IYAM. Good one, pal.

  70. Tidrow September 1st, 2012 at 11:49 am

    Wouldn’t it have been better to promote some of these minor leaguers instead of making deals for the Macghees(sp) and Pearces’ of the world. This organization always seem to be a step behind.

  71. MTU September 1st, 2012 at 11:53 am

    The Yankees value proven experience.

    They do not like to take chances and are in general risk-averse.

    You cannot argue with their track record.

    So their must be somethin’ to it.

    Duh.

  74. J. Alfred Prufrock September 1st, 2012 at 11:57 am

    MTU, I’d say there’s plenty of room for argument on that score.

    You’re always in the position of having to hope whatever kid gets his five minutes, if any does at all, so overwhelms that they are forced to keep putting him in the lineup. No learning curves allowed, just so they can put in guys who are experienced at being also rans.

  75. J. Alfred Prufrock September 1st, 2012 at 11:58 am

    Here’s hoping Nunez overwhelms today – in a good way!

  76. Tidrow September 1st, 2012 at 12:01 pm

    In years past they brought up minor leaguers like Colin Curtis, Cervelli, Russo etc. Not saying they are great but at least they gave em a chance. Now it’s like no rookies allowed. Iis it true they haven’t had an at bat by a rookie the whole year?

  77. Against All Odds September 1st, 2012 at 12:03 pm

    . Iis it true they haven’t had an at bat by a rookie the whole year?

    —————————-

    Yes it’s true unless we are missing someone

  78. Don September 1st, 2012 at 12:06 pm

    Andruw Jones is like Giambi: he should not be allowed to put on a baseball glove and go in the field.

  79. 4 NYY September 1st, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    It’s easy to say bring up the minor leaguers after the “experienced” guys don’t do much.
    ( McGehee, Pearce, Lowe )

    We just don’t know until they get here and play some.

    Not saying I would mind seeing Adams, Mustelier, Almonte or Mesa given a try.

    Who knows, ol’ Cervy might give us a little spark.

    Maybe Nunez can too.

    Let’s hope Jones can run into one and hit it a mile. He’s sure been carried on this team more than most.

  80. J. Alfred Prufrock September 1st, 2012 at 12:20 pm

    4NYY,

    Cervelli has a nice little stroke, they could use that about now. Andruw is hurt too bad to field or hit, it seems. That’s on the Yankees, that they keep rolling out an older guy who is hurt to boot. Better planning ahead would be in order.

  81. 4 NYY September 1st, 2012 at 12:33 pm

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

    You may be right, but look at Chavez and what he goes through to play and produce in the field and at bat. ( Mantle should have had health as good as Jones, LOL )

  82. beedogs September 1st, 2012 at 12:36 pm

    Russ Martin batting in the six hole. This is why this team is not going to win the AL East.
