Quick pitching notes: Hughes, Phelps, Montgomery

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Feb 19, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

• Phil Hughes has a sore upper back. He hurt himself during fielding drills yesterday — he was going to cover first base — and was sent to a doctor today. Joe Girardi expects Hughes to miss a “few days” but doesn’t think it’s too serious. He said the lower back is usually more problematic. The upper back is usually a short-term thing.

• David Phelps will start Saturday’s spring opener. Adam Warren will start on Sunday.

• Mark Montgomery played catch today. He’d been sidelined with a sore lower back — “A little stiffness,” he said — but it’s possible he’ll be cleared to throw a side as early as Thursday. “Everything went good today,” he said.

    I hope they bring a bunch of interesting guys to Phelps’ game as I will be there in person. its the first game so should be lots of prospects.

    “I don’t think it’s ever all about the money for a lot of guys… I just think what we consider to be small things are big things to them. Like I said, a shorted offer in terms of years could give him plenty of money, maybe even a higher AAV than in other deals, but he might deem it an insult. And that’s just not something that we can relate to any experience we’ve had in terms of our jobs and job offers.”

    This suggests to me that the pendulum has swung too far in the players’ direction. It’s just not smart business to commit that much money for so many years without an out. No other sport does it. But the owners have no one to blame but themselves.

    ————————-

    If this were true they wouldn’t still give them out. The reality is the value of the contracts relates exclusively to the health of MLB overall. I know other leagues don’t do them.. but in the NFL especially it’s sort of sick that they don’t guarantee dollars.

    Nah gonna bring a laptop and watch the game through a webcam.

    RAB says Hughes left Game 3 of the ALCS with a stiff back, but I dont remember that at all, was it also in the shoulder area? If Hughes has developed stiffness in the shoulder area while doing baseball things that doesnt bode well.

  5. xsoldier56 February 19th, 2013 at 2:13 pm

    If anyone believes that Dan Johnson can replace Eric Chavez, they are sadly mistaken. Johnson is a career .235 hitter vs. righties. No way he should make this team. He is at best some depth for the AAA bench.

  6. Shame Spencer February 19th, 2013 at 2:17 pm

    “Yankees starter Phil Hughes was lifted in the fourth because of a stiff back, but right now it’s the Yankees’ hitting that has them on the brink of elimination. New York is batting .182 for the series and .200 during the postseason.”

    From ESPN: http://espn.go.com/mlb/recap?id=321016106

    I’ll try to find more detail instead of doing my real job….

  7. NYYROC February 19th, 2013 at 2:17 pm

    PH left the ALCS game with discomfort in his lower back. Rothschild noticed him stretching between innings and then he and Joe didn’t think Phil was following through in next inning so they took him out.

    No injury is good, but stiff/ sore shoulder form covering 1st doesn’t sound as bad as “felt soreness while throwing bullpen”
    Huuuughes!!!

  8. yankeefeminista February 19th, 2013 at 2:20 pm

    It was mild stiffness in the lower back, and Hughes was cleared to throw the very next day.

  9. Rich in NJ February 19th, 2013 at 2:24 pm

    Isn’t that like almost like saying there is no such thing as a bad contract?

    I think too many owner don’t make on the field financial decisions from as a detached perspective as they would in their other businesses.

    As to the Yankees, in particular, it was one thing when they were willing to outspend any mistake they made in a contract. If that is no longer true, any business rationale for dumb contracts is necessarily not as good a business move.

    The NFL guarantees contract up to the amount of a bonus. The hard cap forces far tougher choices than anything that exists in MLB.

  10. Rich in NJ February 19th, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    Edit: “If that is no longer true, any business rationale for dumb contracts is necessarily not as strong.”

    Not really, every team is different. A bad contract for one team could be a great one for another if they can support it.

    Yeah it does. Which is ridiculous, because it only hurts the players (in a league where there is the most money floating around). The only point of having a cap or the types of taxes MLB is introducing is to curb player salaries. There’s no reason to not sign them if they teams are raking in enough to support the contracts and still earn crazy profits. The Dodgers might be an extreme example and for all I know it could one day all burst but it’s probably very unlikely it ever will.

  12. Rich in NJ February 19th, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    “Not really, every team is different. A bad contract for one team could be a great one for another if they can support it.”

    I would imagine that the number of great contracts with a term over 5 years given to players over 30 is pretty low.

    “Yeah it does. Which is ridiculous, because it only hurts the players (in a league where there is the most money floating around).

The Dodgers might be an extreme example and for all I know it could one day all burst but it’s probably very unlikely it ever will.”

    TBH, I only care about fans, not players. Long-term contracts are more likely to hurt fans by tying a team’s hands than a shorter one.

    Both players and owners get rich. Beyond that, it’s not my concern.

    I just want to root for a team that has as much financial flexibility as possible in the context of a fairly large payroll ever year.

    That’s why good caps contain floors as well.

  13. GregD February 19th, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    I’m sure glad we didn’t trade pitching as many suggested….the injuries are already coming……

  14. jacksquat February 19th, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    I feel better that it happened during fielding drills and not from pitching.

  15. Shame Spencer February 19th, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    Eh, I don’t really buy that caps help fans… I mean, they create parity which I guess people are allowed to be fans of but overall I think they hurt the level of competition on the field.

  16. Jerkface February 19th, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    Salary caps help the owners.

  17. Shame Spencer February 19th, 2013 at 2:49 pm

    ^ Yeah when people talk about how one contract handcuffs a team.. I mean.. sometimes I think that’s true but mostly because I think it means an FO makes a mistake and is stuck with it.

    That seems like fair play to me.

  18. Rich in NJ February 19th, 2013 at 2:52 pm

    Ideally, there are no caps and you root for a team that spends a tone.

    But that is no longer the situation we find ourselves in.

    You have to distinguish between hard and soft caps. Hard caps at least give poorly run teams a chance at resetting their payrolls.

    Since fans are powerless to pick their owners, I am pro-hard cap in a salary cap world

    Granted, ladybugs are beautiful to look at Their bright red color with the intricately carved designs in black, their smooth and glossy texture, their teetered walk across a surface and all that in a small sized frame, do create feelings similar to those of appreciating a work of art. They put forth a feeling of profound beauty. Each one of us, I’m sure, would love to look at a ladybug and witness its crawling across a leaf in the garden, but what would happen if there was a ladybug infestation? Would an infestation of the aforementioned creatures create the same feelings of awe and appreciation for you? I don’t think so. Too much of something is never good, and neither would the number of ladybugs growing and reaching the stage of bringing forth an infestation be welcome. So if there has been an infestation at your home and you want to know how to get rid of it, then the following article will help you do just that.
