Pitchers and catchers: The countdown begins

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jan 12, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

One month. That’s where the countdown begins.

In exactly a month, on February 12, pitchers and catchers will report to the Yankees spring complex in Tampa. That morning — just hours before President Obama delivers his State of the Union address — manager Joe Girardi will sit for his annual start-of-spring-training press conference. It’s essentially his State of the Yankees address.

Girardi will be asked about Alex Rodriguez’s hip, Derek Jeter’s ankle and Mariano Rivera’s knee. He’ll be asked about playing Brett Gardner in center, putting David Phelps in the rotation and trusting Austin Romine behind the plate. He’ll be asked whether this team — with its aging players and injury concerns — can reasonably expect to be better than next year.

Chances are, Girardi won’t give definitive answers to many, if any, of those questions. That’s what spring training is for, he’ll say; to find those answers.

Right now, with a month of offseason still to go, the roster still has questions to address even before pitchers and catchers arrive in Tampa. Can the Yankees find the right-handed bat they want and need? Who’s going to get the bulk of the designated hitter at-bats? Is the front office working on a surprise deal that will spark some new optimism?

Last year, it wasn’t until camp opened – more or less – that the Yankees traded away A.J. Burnett and signed both Eric Chavez and Raul Ibanez. Clay Rapada showed up after pitchers and catchers reported, Cody Eppley was claimed late in spring training, and Chris Stewart was acquired just before Opening Day.

Moves will be made, and significant decisions settled, after camp opens. But in one month, Girardi will sit down to address the state of the Yankees. Is he going to have anything new to talk about?

    A more appropriate title for the Yankees would be: pitchers and no catchers report in a month

    If they could agree on how to divvy ‘em up I’d trade 8 of my top 10 for both of them.

    86 – HELL. YES.

    It would be insane if they could make something like that happen. Insanely awesome. I don’t think we have enough pieces for both but I like the way you’re thinking :D

    I’ve heard Hockey is some form of ice soccer that they used to play in Canada?

  19. austinmac January 12th, 2013 at 9:24 am

    While we heard the Yankees have called on Morse and sought Hairston on a one year, we have not heard a word on Upton. Why? I believe because he is owed significant money post 2013. Even with the lower AAV calculation, it is still a big chunk of money for them.

    If no Morse, then they will try Hairston and likely overpay for one year of a guy who will probably hit .240. Last year was an outlier for him.

    After Hairston, the options get worse than we have in the minors. Please don’t make me watch Rivera.

  20. blake January 12th, 2013 at 9:24 am

    Maybe the NHL should give their players steroids to save their sport?

    Because Cashman refuses to do a trade if people know about it! Of course you’re reason is probably why….but I will hold hope until they totally dash them

  22. jmills January 12th, 2013 at 9:27 am

    I have my front teeth, thank god my parents took me out of the game; Jean Ratelle I was not. Baseball you could go to yourself on a bike without your parents.

    Seriously though….the only trade Cashman has made that anybody knew about beforehand that I can think of was the AJ Burnett deal last year…..the Yanks have very few front office leaks unlike the Red Sox and some other teams

    There’s already a lot of reports about how the NHL and NFL don’t do a ton of testing but don’t get called on it a lot. I sometimes wonder if it’s just because those sports are so much more physical than baseball (and I mean that relatively, obviously a full season of baseball is a grind, it’s just different).

  39. austinmac January 12th, 2013 at 9:36 am

    But, other teams have leaks. The DBacks only keep quiet about the Yankees interest? I will be shocked, very happily so, if we add Upton. Morse, doubtful, but possible.

    It is amazing to me the Yankees are not going all out to add a bat for 2014 and beyond they can either pair with Cano or replace him, at least in part.

    It’s imperative that we find out if it was the lard in the Empanadas, or the coconut whoopies, or a combination of both ?

    If we know we can have the Yankees MiLB teams incorporate it into their training regimen immediately.

    Emulating Pujols is a worthy goal. That may have been why some our guys were not reaching their full potential. It may have been their diet.

    I have to walk the Mops now. I’ll discuss that point and others with them. See if they can can provide any more insight.

  47. coney1 January 12th, 2013 at 9:46 am

    Let me know your thoughts- My obligatory Justin Upton trade proposal (expanded to include a highly unlikely 2nd player coming to the Yanks): Brett Gardner, Eduardo Nunez, Austin Romine, Ivan Nova or David Phelps, Slade Heathcott, and Gary Sanchez for Justin Upton and….. Miguel Montero. How quick does Kevin Towers hang up or would he consider a proposal with a lot of quantity? He gets a starter with long term potential in either Nova or Phelps. A leadoff hitter in Gardner, another SS option in Nunez, a catcher in Romine who can man the ship until Sanchez is ready and one of our 3 OF top prospects (and the one who is closest to the majors). Any thoughts?

  48. RadioKev January 12th, 2013 at 9:49 am

    I’ve said it before, but I think Carlos Beltran is the mark for a Granderson or Cano trade. You can hope to get maybe the same type of value from Granderson, one A level pr

  49. RadioKev January 12th, 2013 at 9:50 am

    One A level prospect is about the most we can hope for. With Cano would be a little more, but less than Tex.

  50. austinmac January 12th, 2013 at 9:54 am

    Porridge sounds pretty good after a winter of gruel.

  51. blake January 12th, 2013 at 9:59 am

    “How quick does Kevin Towers hang up or would he consider a proposal with a lot of quantity”

    Fairly quickly I think…..that is a lot for the Yabks to give up but Towers would be giving up two really good big league established players……that deal might turn out great for the Dbacks long term……but it also could bust and leave then with nothing

    An A level prospect for 3B and the OF would be okay by me if the talent is there.

    MTU – I believe the lard was just used for the empanadas.. those coconut whoopie pies looked awesome though.

  53. 86w183 January 12th, 2013 at 10:02 am

    Those are probably very expensive melons.

    I think Pete acknowledges he still plays the horses.

    If he had said the things he says now back in 1990 in terms of admitting it, accepting punishment, blaming only himself and apologizing to the game he would have be reinstated to some degree long ago.

    It’s why two Hall voters I’ve spoken with indicate they may want to reward A-Rod when the time comes… IF he has some more productive post-testing seasons.

    The only way Cano is traded is at the TD if the team is ten or more games behind. No negotiations with him and none planned. He will amazingly be allowed to become a free agent without trying to sign him or trade him.

    What other team would do that?

  61. Shame Spencer January 12th, 2013 at 10:08 am

    Yeah I didn’t wanna put Robertson in the Upton deal.. just wasn’t sure if they’d want a reliever. I’d give them Montgomery AND Logan if that was the deal lol.

  63. coney1 January 12th, 2013 at 10:09 am

    Blake,

    You could also substitute Granderson for Gardner so Arizona would not really lose power production from the lineup for 2013.

  64. joeman January 12th, 2013 at 10:11 am

    getting me excited about putting Gardner in trades……keep it up maybe Cash will be looking in

  65. blake January 12th, 2013 at 10:12 am

    Coney,

    That’s a really big deal…..I just can’t see the Dbacks trading Upton and Montero in the same deal

  66. coney1 January 12th, 2013 at 10:15 am

    Blake,

    I can’t either. It’s just a stretch to say the least. The only way I can see that is if Arizona is looking to shed contracts that will be growing over the next couple of years. Montero is going to be 30 and his $$$ starts increasing the next few years to around $13MM. Maybe KT doesn’t want to pay $13MM for a 32 or 33 year old catcher.

  67. joeman January 12th, 2013 at 10:15 am

    they are not going to give Cano what he wants ( no home team discount) …..they have to trade him or lose him

  68. Shame Spencer January 12th, 2013 at 10:19 am

    I think they’re doing this one year stuff for the sole purpose of giving Cano what he wants… I’m just worried we’ll also lose Phil and the opportunity to sign other players and they’ll shove it in our faces like, ‘well, you wanted us to retain Cano, right? So now we did and can’t do anything else for a while.’

  69. joeman January 12th, 2013 at 10:25 am

    so giving Cano 6-7 years $150 mil + is the thing to do….

  70. austinmac January 12th, 2013 at 10:29 am

    Wrecking the team to re-sign Cano is moronic. But, I agree that looks like the plan.

  71. joeman January 12th, 2013 at 10:29 am

    they are going to lock up all their $$$ on a few players & when giving out 1 year contracts we see what type of players they are giving them to…..

    Somebody needs to get Maury Povich on the case. There is just NO WAY Hal can be of George’s loins. Milkman, Mailman, Beggarman, Thief. Someone else has Gotta be responsible for what we are seeing and hearing.
    Is there a bona fide MLB’er that Wants to play in Seattle? And if I’m Hal or Levine, (Cashman NO longer is relevant), I do NOT even inquire about King Felix. Still good, but NOwhere near what he was, and falling quickly.
    I thought the Academy Nominations were pretty weak. NO Batman, NO Hobbit, NO Bond, NO Avengers. These people continue to bite the hand that feeds ‘em.

  74. blake January 12th, 2013 at 10:47 am

    I think 5/175 is the floor of what you can expect to get Cano for…..that’s basically Hamilton plus 2 more years…..Cano plays a more premium position and doesn’t have the injury or off field issues that Josh did…..so you have to figure that’s close to his floor.

    The dodgers are gonna be in on him…. He makes too much sense for them not to….so the Yanks ownership needs to make a decison here.

    Are they gonna pay Cano his market value knowing that he will be declining for a big portion of the contract…..or are they gonna let him walk?

    Cano is one of the best players in baseball…..if you go by WAR he was worth about 4 more wins than any other 2B in baseball last year and he has the most cumulative WAR of any single player since 2009…..he gives them a huge positional advantage daily on the field.

    That said…..if ownership isn’t willing to absorb his decline (like they haven’t been with Arod)….then they need to strongly consider letting him go and spreadin his money around to other areas.

    It’s a tough call…..Id prefer them to just be the Yankees…..pay him…..then deal with his deine when it happens and not let it kill the team….we will see what they do

  76. FiretheUMPIRE January 12th, 2013 at 10:51 am

    That’s an idea. Offer Granderson to the Mariners. But it’s not like NYY haven’t been shopping Granderson. They put him on the market right after the World Series supposedly. Maybe now Seattle is more open since many options have fallen off the board.

    The Yankees could maybe use a key Seattle prospect in an Upton package and surround him with players Towers likes such as Betances, Eduardo Nunez, David Adams…

  77. Shame Spencer January 12th, 2013 at 10:52 am

    If I’m Texas, I don’t spend any more money this off season and try to create an infield of Cano, Andrus and Profar in 2014.

    The Dodgers will push hard though.. so will the Tigers if they decide they have the money.

  78. FiretheUMPIRE January 12th, 2013 at 10:54 am

    SEA prospect + Mason Williams + Betances + Nunez + Adams = Upton?

  79. austinmac January 12th, 2013 at 10:56 am

    It would be nice to be the Yankees who acquired other team’s talent instead of losing their own. Multiple free agents gone this year and a slew next year.

    Hal says we don’t have to spend as we will rely on all of Cashman’s minor league talent.

    Folks, this is not going to end well unless they change paths.

    The Braves are “lying in the weeds” in conversations about Upton, reports ESPN’s Buster Olney (on Twitter). Atlanta would be guaranteed an outfield of Jason Heyward and the two Uptons for three years.
    The Diamondbacks like Mike Olt according to Olney (on Twitter), so presumably he would be someone they target during trade conversations with the Rangers.

  82. MTU January 12th, 2013 at 11:24 am

    I would think if the cost to the Rangers were only Olt + that deal would have already been made.

    No way the Rangers don’t surrender Olt and a lot more for Upton IMO.

    I’m betting they also wanted either Andrus or Profar, and maybe a good arm included.

  83. MTU January 12th, 2013 at 11:35 am

    Blake-

    How bout we trade Austin to the Tigers for Castellanos like you mentioned and then flip Castellanos + + to the Snakes for JU ?

    Might wind up with the Bravos anyway. I think Upton squared plus Heyward has got be very appealing.

  94. The Return of Stoneburner January 12th, 2013 at 11:58 am

    The tricky thing with the Rangers is that they are now thin on pitching – so it is difficult for them to trade any of their pitching depth without already depleting that base – they are already talking about turning Robbie Ross into a reliever – who I would like to acquire – - – -they have the depth and quality – but can they afford to include pitching???

    “So you’re basically saying my father did a poor job in teaching me right from wrong?”

    Hell no! Maybe we were the kind of kids that really needed things drilled into us, I don’t know, but what I am telling you is that my father put the fear of God into us. And we didn’t ever think he was joking. For a lot of my young life I am sure I stayed on the straight and narrow not because I was so morally convicted but I was scared to death of the consequences. My father was definitely the disciplinarian, my mother the patient angel who taught us gently – but she still taught us. My father told us that if we were ever caught doing something wrong, he’d take us to the police station himself. Do I believe he would have? Absolutely and unequivocally. The combination of their lessons stayed with all of us. My dad was the most ethical human being I ever met in my life. So maybe you can understand where I’m coming from when I say the things I do. I don’t see grey, I see right and wrong.

    I am hardly an angel, I make mistakes all the time. But I am pretty darned moral. I don’t cheat in life, and I certainly don’t cheat other people. It isn’t like the steroid users cheated themelves. They cheated any players who were NOT on steroids, they cheated any record holders who may have played the game honestly (yes, I believe that there were many many many who did so), they sullied the reputation of a beautiful game, and they deserve to go down in flames, IMO.

    But no, I am certainly not saying your father did a poor job! I’m sure your parents did a great job. I believe parents teach by example, too. Back to the person I know who bends every rule that she can possibly bend. What chance do her kids have? It’s not an unknown that kids role model after their parents, good and bad.

  96. MTU January 12th, 2013 at 12:03 pm

  101. blake January 12th, 2013 at 12:13 pm

    The Rangers system in general gets fairly thin after the top guys….they have some real talent in the lower levels but after Profar and Olt they are farther away than the Yanks best guys are.

    Perez has been hurt and underperformed….. They do have Martin but tough to know if he’d be a big enough piece to get a deal done either.

    “We all allowed it to happen”

    No WE ALL did NOT allow it to happen. Maybe you allowed it to happen blake, and then I can certainly understand your attitude about it. I did not allow it to happen. I come to the table with clean hands on that one. Maybe my naivety and seeing the world through rose-colored caused me to miss some things, but I did not allow it to happen. And if I knew what was happening, I wouldn’t have turned a blind eye to it and just merrily went along my way enjoying the game. I would have been screaming about it.

    And I can tell you that since I do not get a case of the vapors over home runs, the last thing I would have cared about is the proliferation of homers!

    Finally, though I have been a fan of the Yanks my whole life, quite a few years of my life have been spent in higher education and I can honestly tell you that during those years, I wasn’t able to focus on the game the way I can now. So if I missed some tell-tale signs during those years, then I did. But still, I would never have accepted them blithely or ignored them. Just not who I am.

    “Trisha-

    To this day I thank my Father for the discipline he provided.

    Thought I often resisted his teachings at the time if it were not for him I’m sure I would have sunk to an even lower level.

    He was a wonderful mixture of discipline mixed with compassion.

    I wish he were still with us so I could tell him that. It will just have to wait a while I guess.”

    MTU, he sounds wonderful. And I think you can tell him that. I truly believe that they can hear us. I talk to my dad all the time. You might want to consider talking to your dad and letting him know how you feel and how much you appreciate the man he was and is. I bet he’ll smile proudly and appreciatively from above. What a wonderful job your parents did with you. But I think the had something very special with which to work. I’m sure this hard-headed kid was responsible for some of the grey hairs on her parents’ heads!

    Some of the Rangers talen played in High A bALL – it is really not that much different than what the Yanks have – plus their international signings – even if you take out Profar and Andrus – they have the chips to beat out a Yankees offer – it is just a matter of whether how much Daniels and his crew want to hug their prospects – - – -Rangers have a better farm system – even minus the best prospect in baseball in Profar – - – -

    just have to agree to disagree – Olt leads their farm system – Yanks cannot trump that – and many of their lower minor league talent mirrors the Yanks as possibly even better – Gallo and Beras alone last year brought in to their farm system Yanks could not match for 2012 – add Cody Buckel – and even though Perez is their Banuelos – at least he is still pitching – - – -I still think a Rangers farm system led by Mike Olt and their depth outpaces the Yanks farm system at this point – a year from now it could be very different if the Yanks big four offensive prospects perform in the higher minors – but again – jmo – - – -

    Meant to add this informal top 10 list from Jim Callis at BA – he has the Yanks in at #11 (based on his twitter feed) – he mentions prospectS – with none better than Profar – - – -

    1. Cardinals
    Loaded big league club awaits Oscar Taveras, Shelby Miller and Trevor Rosenthal.
    2. Mariners
    Their best prospects, even 2012 first-rounder Mike Zunino, have had Double-A success.
    3. Marlins
    Blockbuster trade with Blue Jays propelled this system from middle of the pack.
    4. Rangers
    No organization has more high-ceiling prospects, or one better than Jurickson Profar.
    5. Red Sox
    Help is on the way with Xander Bogaerts, Jackie Bradley, Matt Barnes and Allen Webster.
    6. Rays
    Dealing for Wil Myers and Jake Odorizzi helps to make up for recent lackluster drafts.
    7. Twins
    The best collection of bats in the minors, led by Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano.
    8. Pirates
    System isn’t deep but has impressive trios of arms and bats that most can’t match.
    9. Diamondbacks
    No. 6 on my list before subtracting Trevor Bauer and adding Didi Gregorius.
    10. Astros
    Rebuilding will take time, but trades and 2012 draft are steps in the right direction.

  115. jmills January 12th, 2013 at 12:29 pm

    I am not sure what you mean – if you meant he could nothing at all too – that is why I included Matt LaPorta – who has been a big, disappointing RH bat from college – but hit well in the minors – similar to Olt as far as minor league track record to date – - – -

    Shame, to us it’s just a game. To little kids growing up, to kids playing t-ball, then little league, Babe Ruth, and on, the kids who wear uniforms with the names of MLB teams on their shirts, you can believe it’s more than a game. It’s a passion, almost a religion. And their heroes are the guys actually playing the game. So the lessons they get from those players, the lessons they are seeing when they are still in formative years, may be very important lessons.

    Don’t forget that one of the things that got Congress involved was the number of suicides of high school players who had been using steroids, and the overlap of the MLB players using steroids.

    ***********

    Defensively, Castellanos is still looking for a permanent home. He came up as a third baseman, and still might end up there eventually, but the Tigers moved him to right field at midseason. He has earned mixed reviews at third base. Some scouts think he has stiff actions and can be too timid on balls, often getting caught in between hops. Others felt he was solid at the hot corner with quick reactions and above-average arm strength. In mid-July, the Tigers shifted him to right field. He’s still learning to read balls off the bat and to take clean routes on flyballs. With more experience, he could be an average outfielder. He has below-average speed but moves well for his size and runs the bases well.

    Yet when the Mt Rushmore of Cheats (5 of them, you know who they are) get caught yet thumb their nose at the public, of which baseball writers are members of, they get sympathy?

    Boggles the mind.

    Collateral damage? Sure…Piazza feels that.

    To say we are part of the problem b/c we “knew” when all the HR’s were flying is ludicrous.

    So now it’s everybody else’s fault?

    What a racket and so-called intelligent fans are siding with them to let them in when they wagged their fingers and lied to YOUR face. That’s where the line is drawn.

    If you want to cheat, you will, that’s not even the issue, it’s what happens after you’re caught.
    Did they cheat in the past? Sure, it’s part of baseball and all sports.

    But when you insult the public on top of that then screw you….

    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.

  160. home page August 10th, 2014 at 7:49 am

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  167. check this site out August 10th, 2014 at 9:02 pm

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
