Three things…

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Sep 24, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Three quick things before I head downstairs to look for a lineup…

1. Ichiro Suzuki has been named the American League Player of the Week after going hitting .600 (15-for-25) with three doubles, two home runs, five RBI, seven runs scored and six stolen bases in six games. Among Major League leaders, Ichiro led all players in batting average, hits, steals and on-base percentage (.630), was tied for second in total bases (24) and was third in slugging percentage (.960).

2. All indications are that David Aardsma is about to be activated. Last night he tweeted that today would be a “big day” and today he tweeted a picture of Target Field. If the Yankees are going to activate both Aardsma and Brett Gardner, that’s two 40-man moves to be made.

3. Geddy Lee walked into the restaurant where I was eating dinner last night. Has nothing to do with the Yankees, but I thought it was cool.

    More reinforcements to the front.

    :)

  3. mick September 24th, 2012 at 4:36 pm

    glad to see you’re back , Chad.
    flooded with emails I’d bet…

  4. mick September 24th, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    would pay to see aardsma tweet from the mound
    before his 1st pitch like sori

  5. Hassey September 24th, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    Geddy Lee loading up on Carbs before the big fast Wednesday

  6. Tabbert September 24th, 2012 at 4:41 pm

    Everyone getting back just at the laaaaaast possible second. Love the reinforcements.

  7. RSM September 24th, 2012 at 4:43 pm

    Good to have you back Chad.
    Looking forward to seeing what Aardsma has to offer.

    Tabbert, stranger things have happened. I admire the A’s for what they have done this season with a limited budget. They’ve made themselves a very tough team to beat (particularly for the Yankees). But would I rather meet them than the Rangers or Angels in the play-offs? Absolutely.

  9. Tabbert September 24th, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    Bruce- I agree with that. I also would would be a lot more worried about the A’s if the had brett anderson… that was a massive blow for them.

    “spoke to soon… forgot how bad the blue jays hitters are. Rajai Davis batting 5th?! Yea.. orioles will win all four.”

    Patience, dear Tab! They’ll get it done. We have 6 good innings for it to happen!

  11. randy l. September 24th, 2012 at 4:53 pm

    “hughes and Kuroda should really pitch at home.”

    kuroda?

    isn’t he going to be demoted to the bullpen?

    i’d be worried and basically scared to death if girardi started him.

    it’s just a matter of time before he realizes he’s not in the national league anymore.

    plus he has bad karma. something about not being patient with some waiter. i might have that mixed up though.

  12. LGY September 24th, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    Ouch

    @BloggingBombers: Michael Pineda has apparently lost his number: David Aardsma will wear No. 35.

  13. Tabbert September 24th, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    Trisha-

    I am trying to stay positive here… but geez the blue jays are bad. You don’t really notice those things when your actually playing them because your just so wrapped up in winning the game. But we just need them to win one of these games. That would give us a 2 game lead in the loss column with 9 games to play.

  14. Shame Spencer September 24th, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    ^ WTF? Lol… man, it’s a tough life being Michael Pineda….

  15. jmv September 24th, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    Hi guys!

    If Anderson is out, it means A-Rod can step into the mound? LOL

    Interesting about Aardsma. Let’s hope for a blowout (in our favor, of course) to see him pitch

  16. Shame Spencer September 24th, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    Tabbert – Don’t forget the part where we need to win all of our games as well! I’m humming ‘Taking Care of Business’ as we speak.

  17. UnKnown September 24th, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    Lineup Tonight looks like something you will see in October. I love it.

    It’s Go Time!!

  18. Shame Spencer September 24th, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    Who gets moved off the 40 man?

  19. Nick in SF September 24th, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    In a related story, Pineda also apparently lost the numbers of every taxi company in Tampa. :neutral:

  20. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 24th, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    Tab, but here’s the thing. Alvarez has been very good. If they can scrape together a few hits and Alvarez can stay on his game, they can win it! Easier said than done, I know. :)

    I actually thought the games were going to be at Rogers, which would have been much better for us.

  21. Jerkface September 24th, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    Sick burn.

  22. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 24th, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    Hey jmv!

  23. MTU September 24th, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    The Tampa Police sure had Pineda’s #.

    :(

  24. Tabbert September 24th, 2012 at 5:02 pm

    Shame-

    I know… I really think we HAVE to sweep this series and take 3 of 4 from the Jays. I am not saying that it will be easy by and means and its hard to expect a sweep anytime.. but it really has to be done.

  25. luis September 24th, 2012 at 5:02 pm

    Good afternoon,

    Three things: win, win, win

  26. Shame Spencer September 24th, 2012 at 5:02 pm

    LOL, Pineda jokes…. I like that we are at the point where we can laugh about him and not want to cry.

  27. Tabbert September 24th, 2012 at 5:03 pm

    Trish- Alvarez looks pretty good again… nasty at times actually. He is building from his last outing vs the Yanks? He impressed me by getting out of that Jam a inning back.

  28. TwinsOWNstankees September 24th, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    Pineda might as well have had “bust” tattooed on his forehead. Montero is going to be a star. I hope my Twins trade for him. Thank god Cashman the dunce is not the Twins GM. He would sink 20 million each into Jason Bay/Barry Zito types and we would be screwed forever.

  29. Tabbert September 24th, 2012 at 5:07 pm

    There is only 10 games to go… So I don’t really want to get in a discussion about anyone not on our everyday roster. But, I will say that Pineda is a Yankee and I still believe he can be a Beast and i will continue to root for him and support him. But That’s a discussion for 2013. Lets hope Ardsma takes care of business in that 35!

  30. luis September 24th, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    Unknown,

    Jeter,
    Ichiro
    Cano
    Arod
    Grandy
    Swisher
    Martin
    Nunez DH

  31. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 24th, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    Hey luis!

    Tab, I saw him pitch some games last season where he looked absolutely deadly. So he definitely has the stuff.

  32. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 24th, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    Oh God, do we have another iteration of Ruby Tuesday going on?

    :roll:

  33. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 24th, 2012 at 5:12 pm

    This kid definitely has the potential to get a run in.

  34. randy l. September 24th, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    in related twins news livan has pitched for five teams since the twins made the mistake of letting him go.

    i know , i know, what does livan have to do with pineda?

    good point, because livan is actually pitching :)

    (though 6 runs yesterday in 2/3′s of an inning probably shouldn’t be called pitching )

  35. jmv September 24th, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    Hi trisha!

    Hey, luis! The most important thing about that lineup is to keep “DH” besides Nuñez’ name, LOL

  36. TwinsOWNstankees September 24th, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    The real Stankee lineup:

    SS – Jeter
    LF – Old washed up dude
    2B – Cano
    DH – $30M washed up disaster
    CF – .220 K Master
    1B – Goofball Choke Artist
    C – Suckster
    3B – Old washed up dude
    RF – Old washed up dude

  37. Warning Track Power September 24th, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    Chad must be dining in the finest establishments.
    Geddy Lee has a lot of money. Perhaps he and Chad are in the same
    tax bracket.
    Lucky Chad!!

  38. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 24th, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    Not what you want to see. The killer is that the O’s specialize in low-scoring games.

  39. jmv September 24th, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    New thread—————–>>>>>>>>

  40. Nick in SF September 24th, 2012 at 5:20 pm

    Oh no, randy’s not pretending to not read my posts anymore. :shock:
