Very quick notes: Nunez, Teixeira, Pearce

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Sep 29, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Just a few things real quickly…

• Eduardo Nunez is not hurt. He was pulled strictly for defense.

• Still no word on Jayson Nix’s MRI results.

• Mark Teixeira came through today’s instructional league game with no problems, and it seems likely he’ll join the Yankees against Boston.

• Steve Pearce has been claimed off waivers by — of all teams — the Orioles.

    “Eduardo Nunez is not hurt. He was pulled strictly for defense.”

    Really, it’s just beyond words at this point.

    If it were guaranteed Girardi would be fired if they didn’t make the postseason I’d hope they lose the last 4 games.

  2. MTU September 29th, 2012 at 4:51 pm

    The older your team is the harder it is to keep them healthy.

    Girardi seems to acknowledge that in the way he uses his veterans.

    Trouble with that approach is that in this kind of a dogfight it’s inappropriate.

    You need all your best guys on the field when the race is so tight.

    What good is resting them if you’re not gonna make it w/o them ?

  3. mick September 29th, 2012 at 4:53 pm

    Like that Seinfeld skit:
    We know how to get baserunners we just don’t know how to bring them in.
    We are due for one big inning a game…usually by the HR.
    That’s how we win…
    No surprise today.

  4. MTU September 29th, 2012 at 4:53 pm

    Girardi in danger of winning battles but losing the entire War.

    Wake up Joe. Before it’s too late.

  5. Barry September 29th, 2012 at 4:53 pm

    Stop writing and thi8nking estructive thoughts about this team and its players. Soemthing serious is happening to the manager. I don’t know what it is but if we think nervous breakdown we might be close. It isn’t just the moves that are made. Watch “him” move. Try to udnerstand the body language.

  8. austinmac September 29th, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    I can’t remember ever seeing a defensive replacement in the middle of a tie game. That is without even considering he had made no errors and had hit the ball hard. I was offended then and now.

    Today’s game pissed a lot of people off.

    Including me.

  11. igotid88 September 29th, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    A-Rod will hit again. If Jeter can Alex can

  12. JM September 29th, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    Some of Joe’s moves over the last week have been baffling…pulling Hughes out of the game, pulling Andy today….continuing to start Jones (his rationale in the postgame was that he had hit a homerun recently….are you kidding me?)

  13. mick September 29th, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    YT

    The Royals would love Nova and Nunez.
    Their problems are pressure related . The big city will do that to you.

  14. JM September 29th, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    JackCurryYES Girardi: “We had a chance to blow that game open and didn’t do it.” The Yankees will regret this loss. Jays gift-wrapped this game for them

    Yep

  15. MTU September 29th, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    Girardi reminds me of the Weatherman.

    All sorts of computers, theories, and number to predict it.

    When he could sometimes just do a better job by looking out his window and using his eyes.

  16. Yankee Trader September 29th, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    Wish I had access to the postgame interview with Joe.

    Maybe Francona shouldn’t be too quick to accept the Indians job if offered.

  17. austinmac September 29th, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    It’s all due to injuries and not poor jobs by the entire management and staff. We believe in this team going forward with a few tweaks such as losing a few key players for money reasons and adding players for the league minimum after their release.

    Think of us this winter curling up with the extra new TV money.

    Mick-

    Pinella would be an excellent choice.

    So would Francona.

  22. MTU September 29th, 2012 at 5:03 pm

    But we all know Girardi isn’t going anywhere.

    :(

  23. austinmac September 29th, 2012 at 5:03 pm

    MTU,

    I agree on Girardi’s need to see and feel the game. It was obvious to me replacing Hughes was a mistake. He was still throwing well. Sometimes going lefty-lefty witha struggling pitcher shouldn’t feel right.

  24. mick September 29th, 2012 at 5:03 pm

    If at all possible I would have loved to see Gardy get an AB or 2 vs Romero.
    He is 9-17 against him.
    If he cant swing then why carry him, carry an extra pitcher, not named Nova.

  25. MTU September 29th, 2012 at 5:03 pm

    We need a few more Ichiro’s.

    :)

  26. Yankee Trader September 29th, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    Gotta go.

    Hopefully, if the Yankees are the wildcard, playing the A’s in Oakland, the NY Post headlines next Saturday morning don’t read…………..

  27. jmv September 29th, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    Hi, everyone

    Didn’t catch the game, but seems like I didn’t have to. Same old story

    What I think about:
    -pulling Nunez: can’t understand it
    -putting Jones: there’s nobody else
    -bringing Joba: there’s nobody else (I’d kept Andy, though)

    Why aren’t there enough players? Blame it on Hal and his budget. Cash is hand-tied

    I get Trisha. You root and root but nothing seems to change.

    Maybe if we get dumped from PS there will be a kick on the table. We can only hope

  28. mick September 29th, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    Francona let his inmates run the asylum.
    Pinella would keep them on their toes.
    Hal isn’t creative enough to think out of the box.

  29. MTU September 29th, 2012 at 5:07 pm

    It wouldn’t surprise me if the Yankees still wind up winning the Division by virtue of their schedule.

    They sure made it hard on themselves though.

    They fell from their perch with a mighty thud.

  30. RMS September 29th, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    Remember when the Yankees led by 10 games? Stop the collapse.

  31. Niblick September 29th, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    The only thing that getsYankee management’s attention us dollars. As long as fans are buying tickets, food and beer, and watching Yes, they’re happy.

  32. austinmac September 29th, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    I don’t think Girardi or Cashman will leave. They are good soldiers on team Hal. Make excuses, blame bad luck, bad calls or explain that these games are all crap shoots.

  33. MTU September 29th, 2012 at 5:12 pm

    The product on the field has to decline significantly along with ticket sales before any action is taken by the green-eyshade crowd.

    You can count on that (no pun intended).

  34. tucker September 29th, 2012 at 5:12 pm

    Austinmac, I agree pulling Nunie in a tied game is virtually unprecedented. Kills the kid’s confidence when you need him now more than ever (with Nix’s apparent injury). Plus, nobody swung the bat better today than Nunez. It’s a tie game. You need to score another run before you have a chance to win.

  35. Bo knows September 29th, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    What’s with all the grief with Girardi. Anyone watch the game? It was a couple of games ago, all the screaming that Nunez lost the game. Even though it cost one base.

    Players get a pass, Joe is the villian. It was the Nyquill Yankees. It was soporific. It was “I got mine”. Even Ibanez, the consumate professional is trying to jerk every pitch out of the park.

    Girardi could do cartwheels and backflips, wouldn’t matter. The game was lost on the field. Same game as yesterday except Martin hit the big HR. No HR today, no win.

    Blake was right
    Sitting around and waiting for that ever elusive HR is like watching paint dry. I can forgive everything but boring, for my entertainment.

  36. Duh Innings II September 29th, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    A-Rod and his homerun milestone bonuses to the Cubs for Soriano and a savings of at least $60M ($144M for A-Rod – up to $84M for Soriano), more the less the Yanks owe in homerun milestone bonus money.

    If the Yanks don’t reach the World Series this season, let’s give Sori a chance to be in three times as many World Series and win as many World Series as A-Rod as a Yankee.

    A-Rod for Sori this offseason + Sori kept 2013-15 + Yanks win 2013/14/15 World Series = two World Series wins in four tries since 2001 and a WS win with each player. Yanks beat Texas again (Yanks win WS with players Texas had but never won a WS with) and the Cubs (who most likely won’t make it to the 2013/14/15 WS with A-Rod or without him.) A-Rod can still say he got a WS ring, one with the Yanks, and it didn’t take him three WS to get one like it took Sori who can say he got a WS ring, one with the Yanks.

    Yanks win a WS with a homegrown player they used to trade for a guy who helped them win a WS.

    FULL CIRCLE.

  37. austinmac September 29th, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    MTU,

    They struggle with everyone. How many times this past two months have we scratched our heads when they would lose a series to a weak team?

  38. Barry September 29th, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    Remember all the flack Hank had until he was moved underground. He was a lot of fun and wanted to succeed. All hail Hank.

  39. tucker September 29th, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    Despite his denials, I really think Hal is setting this team up for a sale. The Steinbrenner clan may maintain a minority stake, but I think Hal sees the Dodgers $2 billion price tag as all too appealing.

  40. jmv September 29th, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    The way Nova is pitching, Phelps is a keeper

    They need bats like Nunez’. Will give him the chance to learn to use a glove in the winter (if he hasn’t learnt in all these years…)

    And both are cheap. Seems they aren’t going anywhere.

  41. Bo knows September 29th, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    The lonely cry from the wild.

    Put in Dickerson, (echo, echo).

  42. MTU September 29th, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    Bo-

    Jones should never have started that game.

    He crapped the bed several times with guys on.

    No surpise there.

    That’s on Girardi. He makes out the lineup card.

    He’s overly concerned about resting guys IMO.

    Swisher could have played RF and Mcgehee could have played first, or Chavez.

    What about moving Granderson down in the lineup ?

  43. austinmac September 29th, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    I hope they do sell. A new owner wants to create excitement. Hal wants to quietly earn income.

  44. MTU September 29th, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    Bo-

    Or as you point out- Dickerson.

  45. Tar September 29th, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    I didn’t have a problem pulling Nunez.

    I didn’t like using ibanez so early for Jones though. That was a great spot for Dickerson. Would have also made the D better and kept Raul’s bat for later in the game.

  46. MTU September 29th, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    Oh well.

    Now I’m reduced to rooting for the Sux.

    That’s sad.

    The enemy of my enemy is my friend I guess.

  47. Jerkface September 29th, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    I didn’t have a problem pulling Nunez.

    I do, don’t start him if you’re going to do that. Girardi has to be the only manager in the AL who, since he has started managing, has willingly given up the DH due to his own strategic wants as many times as he has.

  48. tucker September 29th, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    The Nunez move represented inconsistent logic. The purpose of starting Nunez was to give Jeter a rest on the hard playing surface. If he does not believe in Nunez, he shouldn’t have started him.

    So you bring in Jeter. His body is not allowed to recuperate. And you take Nunez out. Keep in mind had a single and the two loudest outs of the day. And when you take Nunez out, you still have to figure out a way to get at least a run out of this moribund offense. You cant sacrifice offense for defense at that point …

    But sacrificing offense for defense has been the operating theory of the front office on down. Pineda will drink to that.

  49. Bo knows September 29th, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    What about moving Granderson down in the lineup ?

    Cosmetics, the situation would find him.

    I think I’m on record, cheering the Nunez playing time and bemoaning Jones. I’ve shown many times that I’m on the Girardi tailgate. My only beef would be that Joe wouldn’t look for the spark as in inserting Dickerson. Girardi is out there nursing fragile egos and working clubhouse politics.

    The rest is on the players. They’re sleep walking. They did it in Minnesota, they did it yesterday, they did it today. No urgency, no basics, selfish at bats – boring baseball.

  50. NYY fan in NH September 29th, 2012 at 5:31 pm

    I’ve never been so irritated than I am with this loss today especially the crap RISP numbers and the importance of the game. Do we really expect them to just ignite the offense once they are in the playoffs. I can’t handle another 1 and done playoff performance again. CC gets on track again and Nova and Kuroda stink. There is no consistency and nothing but underperforming players. Cano’s almost 30 rbi’s less than last year and he’s supposed to be our MVP. Granderson, I can’t even talk about anymore. Girardi is a brain fart of a manager! I wish Francona would manage this team.

  51. MTU September 29th, 2012 at 5:31 pm

    Bo-

    Of course Girardi can’t play for his players but I don’t think he is very creative, insightful, or flexible in his approach.

    He’s way too mechanistic, and for a guy who played the game seems to have a lousy feel for in-game management.

    Do I think the team needs to get younger like yesterday ?

    You bet I do.

    There’s too much Geritol being passed around.

  52. jacksquat September 29th, 2012 at 5:32 pm

    The Red Sox have lost half their team, so routing for them is only half bad.

  53. MTU September 29th, 2012 at 5:34 pm

    Maybe Texeira will provide a much needed spark in the final 3 games.

    We must not lose another game.

    That’s whether the O’s win or lose tonight.

  54. Bo knows September 29th, 2012 at 5:34 pm

    Dickerson has some rediculous numbers in very few at bats. The biggest sin is not riding a hot streak in poker or a hot bat in baseball. That’s on Girardi, the rest is on the players.

  55. MTU September 29th, 2012 at 5:35 pm

    Bo-

    We’re just gonna have to agree to disagree on this one.

  56. austinmac September 29th, 2012 at 5:36 pm

    Bo,

    I agree moving people in the lineup isn’t the answer. The players have to play. I think Girardi has been dealt a short hand. These guys can’t hit and run, steal, bunt or make good outs. He has little choice. If McGehee is the answer, it is a bad question.

  57. Bo knows September 29th, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    He’s way too mechanistic, and for a guy who played the game seems to have a lousy feel for in-game management.

    —————

    Yes, Girardi is mechanistic. It’s the safest way to manage, especially in NY. You have to baby the fragile egos. I love Francona as a manager. He went down in flames propping up his stars

    Girardi showed himself to be innovative with the Marlins. Different strokes.

    He didn’t all of a sudden lose his mind or turn masochistic.

  58. comet September 29th, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    I’ve said it all season long, even when the Yankees had a 10 game lead that if I could I’d fire Girardi. I’ve said it all along. The only kudo I can give him is his management of the bullpen in terms of of not over using them. As far as in game management I’d fail him.

    It used to be that everyone who was healthy was available. Not with Joe. I don’t blame the players. As far as I know everyone does his best. There are no slackers out there. There are far too many old guys out there though.

  59. tucker September 29th, 2012 at 5:42 pm

    The O’s finish up against the Rays. So the Yanks may get a break there.

  60. comet September 29th, 2012 at 5:43 pm

  61. tucker September 29th, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    At a point earlier in the season I thought Girardi was a legit candidate for manager of the year. I don’t care for the by-the-numbers approach, but I think it has merit under some circumstances.

    The problem isn’t Girardi. The problem is the roster, and that is all on Hashman (Hal and Cashman).

  62. MTU September 29th, 2012 at 5:46 pm

    Same for you Comet.

    Are you heading for the Springs this Winter ?

    ———–
    Oh boy, I can hardly wait for the pop ups and grounders into the shift. Another “still waiting for the HR”.

    My point is, that Girardi can’t do innovation under the microscope that’s New York. Fans attack him using his binder.

  64. YES September 29th, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    There’s not a lot of choices on this roster with RH hitters. However, since Nunez is a liability in the field & Jones is giving them nothing, why not DH Nunez against LH pitching. At lease you add speed, & youth to the lineup.

    Jeter SS
    Ichiro LF
    Tex 1B
    Cano 2B
    Alex 3B
    Swish RF
    Martin C
    Granderson CF
    Nunez DH

  65. MTU September 29th, 2012 at 5:51 pm

    Bo-

    If he gets results he can do anything he wants.

    He either has confidence in himself or he doesn’t.

    He isn’t exactly dazzling everyone following the book either.

    It may be a safe justification but it’s a poor excuse for leadership.

  66. Bo knows September 29th, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    Hey Comet

    Actually that was Mike’s but he answered so it’s all good.

    Does the sun still set in Mississauga. (That was the standing Toronto joke out west oncet)

  67. joecembrale September 29th, 2012 at 5:55 pm

    Why isn’t Cashman ever called out for putting this aging, failing team together. I think with the injuries, lack of timely hitting, dead wood on this roster (Andruw Jones, Cody Eppley, Pearce, McGeeheeheehhee) and primetime players having bad seasons (AROD, Cano, Tex) we did better or as well as expected. But what are we really talking about here, 5 extra games in October? This team cannot win.

  68. joecembrale September 29th, 2012 at 5:59 pm

    Hey Bo,
    I was at a luncheon a couple of weeks ago that Girardi attended and my buddy asked him why does he always go by the book. His answer was that he plays hunches and goes with his gut more than anyone thinks. If the hunch was starting Andruw Jones, I say stick to the binder.

  69. sunny615 September 29th, 2012 at 5:59 pm

    Does this team deserve to win the division?

  70. Bo knows September 29th, 2012 at 6:01 pm

    —————
    I’m somewhat rational on here, you should hear me away from the keyboard. I went out and cut the lawn for a while, had a couple of Fullers pops to console me.

  71. Bret The Hitman September 29th, 2012 at 6:03 pm

    The team’s hitting philosophy is deeply flawed.

    Kevin Long has done nothing here but preach bad habits and reinforce them. He has not challenged a single one of these hitters to put the ball in play like Jeter or Ichiro. Every single guy under his tutelage waits for the perfect pitch to “drive”. The problem is, in the playoffs, the entire lineup might see only a handful of those pitches collectively.

    Cashman keeps bringing in these types of players as well. So really Kevin Long is just going along with the approach established by the organization as a whole.

    But we can’t oust Cashman before we dump Long. As soon as Long is fired, we’ll then know that Cashman isn’t totally safe.

    I’m hoping for that sign to come.

  72. Bo knows September 29th, 2012 at 6:06 pm

    If the hunch was starting Andruw Jones, I say stick to the binder.
    ———-
    I’m on record that they should have put Jones down a month ago. Apparently he’s Jeter’s bud.

    Once upon a time I coached a community club minor hockey team. I can sympathize with Girardi. Those raging mamas are scary.

  73. Bo knows September 29th, 2012 at 6:13 pm

    Long teaches basics. Basics by definition are exactly that, as a correct base as possible to square the bat to the ball. Granderson was the perfect example of his work. Unfortunately Granderson has spent a year moving away from those basics. It was straight back and straight forward, now look at the swing.

  74. Wang IS Taiwan September 29th, 2012 at 6:14 pm

    Girardi manages NOT to win, but instead not to lose. That must really inspire his players. NOT.

    I would hate to miss the playoffs, but if it would help get rid of this loser, then so be it. It’s not like this team is going anywhere. The only problem is that Cashman seems to love his little “yes” man.

  75. Bret The Hitman September 29th, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    Not one single player has exceeded expectations under long. MOST have fallen short of expectations on Long’s watch – Tex, Granderson, Martin, Swisher (in the playoffs).

  76. joecembrale September 29th, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    Granderson’s regression this year has been truly disturbing. He cng talent available. A lot of teams would go this off season if there is some young.blelent availa ta

    Catch you all later.

  78. TheStraw September 29th, 2012 at 6:33 pm

    How can you not blame Girardi for a big part of this loss:

    1) not letting Andy finish the inning which resulted the lead being blown.
    2) Starting Smiley Jones and his .205 avg.
    3) sitting Martin who has been the teams best hitter for the last two weeks
    4) no attempts to manufacture runs until late in the game when it was expected
    5) pulling Nunez who had scalded two balls and giving up the DH ( why not just DH hiim to begin with)
    6) Resting guys in the middle of a tooth and nail fight for the division.

    I’ve had enough of Forrest Girardi.

  79. mick September 29th, 2012 at 6:37 pm

    I didn’t have a problem pulling Nunez.

    I do, don’t start him if you’re going to do that. Girardi has to be the only manager in the AL who, since he has started managing,
    =========================
    Exactly.
    He manages the team like a little league team. It undermines Nunez confidence to remove him from the game.He is so rigid that there is no way Jeter can play that extra game on turf. Do you think today is the day Jeter goes down forever. What about Andy?
    You remove him with 2 outs because he is a pitch away from 95?
    Ludicrous. Every move you made today was wrong starting with Jones.

    No one responded to my thought about Geradi breaking down. I can’t prove or definitively illustrate that, but people close to me, one man and one woman, both beautiful and bright, have broken down on more than one occasion over the years. It is something you get a feel for. When you see it, you know what it is. Now maybe this guy, a professional athlete can pull himself together, but that is something that has to be addressed. Remember this, if something, in game strategy, doesn’t seem right, there are only two explanations: One, we as fans don’t have enough insight and lack information; two, it isn’t right.

    While in Toronto, A-Rod should make a visit to his old friend Dr. Galea for a little somethin-somethin…. then maybe he can put the ball OVER the fence instead of 50 feet in front of it and by the time they test him the season will be over anyway.

    Problem with this team is that there is no accountability. Cashman doesn’t have to answer to anyone when he commits a blunder. Neither does Girardi or the players for that matter. It’s almost like a family run business where there is no way the father will fire his sons or daughters if business is bad. People are too comfortable and i’m tired of it. Need someone to come in and shake things up. If Hal and company aren’t up to it sell the freakin team.

    4) no attempts to manufacture runs until late in the game when it was expected
    —————
    I could go point by point, but just this one. This team is old and slow and station to station. Get creative all you want, they don’t have to tools to execute.

    Girardi does need to move on. Anyone would be better than him, even Ozzy Guillen ! It’d be weird to see Francona the NYY manager, but it would sure be a great improvement.

    What scares me right now is that Andy won’t wanna come back when he can only get W’s if he pitches shutouts. This team has been bad since 2010 season and consistently getting worse.. who replaced Damon,Matsui, Posada, the league leader in strikeouts that is hitting .1xx since ASG ? Add that to Arod and Tex declining 20%-30% every year.. it’s actually becoming contagious ! Look what is happening to Cano.. he’s even down 30+ RBI’s and his BA is down.. Almost every player is absolutely looking for a HR each AB.. just imagine how bad this team would be without Jeter and Ichiro.

    I know the bottom line is we wanna see our NYY win the WS.. but my frustration is grown by magnitudes each season as our stars decline more and more.. and next season if we don’t make some serious moves to shake things up, I won’t be able to watch this team. I can’t imagine them declining further another year and they obviously will.
