Spring training Game 17: Yankees vs. Cardinals

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Mar 11, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

YANKEES (4-11)
Brett Gardner LF
Derek Jeter SS
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Kevin Youkilis 1B
Eduardo Nunez SS
Chris Stewart C
Corban Joseph 2B
Ronnier Mustelier 3B
Slade Heathcott CF

RHP Hiroki Kuroda (0-1, 5.40)

CARDINALS (8-6)
Jon Jay CF
Matt Carpenter 2B
David Freese 3B
Matt Adams DH
Shane Robinson LF
Jamie Romak 1B
Pete Kozma SS
Justin Christian RF
J.R. Towles C

RHP Lance Lynn (1-1, 8.31)

TIME/TV: 1:05 p.m., YES Network/ESPN

WEATHER: Sunny, blue skies, perfect Florida weather.

UMPIRES: HP Marty Foster, 1B Mark Carlson, 2B Dan Iassogna, 3B Vic Carapazza

REMEMBER ME? Justin Christian gets the start in right field for the Cardinals. The speedy outfielder came up through the Yankees system and got to New York to play in 28 games in 2008. Originally undrafted, Christian has gotten big league time the past two years with the Giants. I remember him most from Scranton, when he and Brett Gardner were in the same outfield, flying all over the place.

SENT DOWN: It technically happened a few days ago and doesn’t really matter because of his injury, but Adonis Garcia has been officially assigned to minor league camp.

WHAT TO WATCH: Would Matt Adams be a good trade target for the Yankees? He’s blocked in St. Louis but has a big bat. Could fill the void at first, but what to do with him after Teixeira comes back? … Ronnier Mustelier is suddenly a hot topic of discussion here in Yankees camp. He’s getting a look at third base, but has to prove he can play there defensively. … Kevin Youkilis is getting his first spring start at third. … A lot of legitimate big league options on the mound today, including Dave Robertson’s return from that odd shoulder stiffness.

UPDATE, 1:09 p.m.: It’s amazing how many Cardinals fans are here. HUGE ovation for David Freese. I’ve never seen a crowd quite like this at Steinbrenner. The entire third-base side of the stadium and much of the right-field bleachers seem full of red shirts.

UPDATE, 1:32 p.m.: Impressive inning by Kuroda. Puts a runner on base with a double — the guy then stole third — but Kuroda struck out the next two to strand the runner. His past four outs have been strikeouts.

UPDATE, 2:19 p.m.: Youkilis has his first Yankees homer, which puts the Yankees up 1-0 in the fourth.

UPDATE, 3:29 p.m.: Cashman just confirmed that the Yankees have signed Ben Francisco to a minor league deal. He’ll compete for a spot as a right-handed reserve outfielder.

    @ProfessorParks: @TarYank6 Yep. Can touch 98; changeup is a beast pitch that misses bats; SL has potential as well. Could be monster

    About Ramierez

  3. Rich in NJ March 11th, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    If Cashman is spending this much effort looking in the Recycle Bin of his computer, he probably should start with Posada, who might still offer more value at C than Chris Stewart, even if he played while being intoxicated.

  8. Doreen March 11th, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    Actually, I think the dumpster diving Cash, for the particular purpose of finding bench players, was great. That’s an area of the team you don’t want to be spending too much money on. It theoretically would allow the money to go to the every day player/starting pitcher.

    However, I think he got too good at it. And perhaps ownership believed you could take it a step further than it was ever meant to go? I mean, I’m not in those meetings. I wouldn’t know. But you can’t deny Cashman has done pretty well finding those veterans with one or two more seasons in them.

    Now, hairy monster Cash? I just hate that terminology and I think he thinks he’s being cute with it, and I get that you want players who can maximize their power with the short porch and all, and I get that you want guys who can come off the bench late in a game and make a huge impact, but not every player needs to be a BHM. Even BHMs need the guys who can be on base for them so that when they DO take advantage of the short porch, it’s a game changer.

    Odds, that was a great post by GLove.

    I saw it this a.m.

    And yes, many of us thought Cashman was going to really leverage the Yankees’ great advantage of not just spending on FA, but primarily, in my case, of using the farm to fill in while the great veterans we have were still very viable, and transitioning the team rather seamlessly.

    Yankeefem said this to me and I think it perfectly and succinctly states the heart of Cashman’s failure:

    She said: He didn’t know how to move an aging team forward.

    That’s it: and with the resources he had, and the gift of players like Jeter, Alex, Posada in place, he could have judiciously added to Cano with Montero, etc. and we’d have a very vibrant, diverse lineup to go with our excellent pitching.

    ———————————

    YF said it best he didn’t know how to move the team forward. You and I spoke about this a while back; the team was set up nicely after 2009. They had kids and vets and money to play with but they took a different route and it has blown up in their face. Now they are once again putting the pressure on the kids.

    No to Derrek Lee and Co. As for Cash, he thinks aloud to the media about everything. He needs to go find his filter and put it back on.
    ==========================
    He needs to be relieved of GM duties till he’s off the painkillers.

    Slade in Center?!? My day just got brighter. Curious to see how CoJo and Mustelier do, especially since they both (mostly Ronnier) have potential to break camp.

  12. Tackelberry March 11th, 2013 at 1:10 pm

    If Chipper decided to come back, his first call would be to the Braves, not the Yanks.

  18. yankeefeminista March 11th, 2013 at 1:16 pm

    Cash’s prototypical hairy monster unfortunately ignores contact, and K’s too much. And there are judiciously chosen dumpster divers and then those that preclude integrating youth or who are overused and detrimental to the offense. Everyone remembers the good of Ibanez, who need I say I was rooting for as much as anyone else, but not the bad: abysmal fielder, abysmal road splits, abysmal vs. lefties, and even vs. righties, he had a .319 OBP. And yes, balance would be ideal. But …

    Go, Jeet!!!

    Ichiro up 3rd, I like. Cano should hit cleanup. Ichiro can hit for power at the Stadium.

    Cash opening his mouth again kinda helped…

  30. yankfan1 March 11th, 2013 at 1:25 pm

    its not free agents but taking salaries like morneau or soriano, all better options then what the Yankees have now, or looking into, or waiting to be cut by a team after spring training.

  31. mick March 11th, 2013 at 1:25 pm

    Talking Chipper Jones is a slap in Yankee fans faces.
    Send Derrek Lee right o the minor league compound if you want but he should not see the light of day in Tampa.
    What does this say to Mustelier?
    No chance, no hope…
    Other prospects might pick up on that.

    Cashman continues to be the kid in the back of the classroom, waving his arms, hoping the teacher will pick him, and the attention will be focused on him. Sad to see a Yankee GM reduced to this.

  51. mick March 11th, 2013 at 1:40 pm

    Throwing a CU should not be brain surgery.
    “Learning” the fastball or curve should be harder.
    We’re talking changing speeds.

  52. jacksquat March 11th, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    If Ramirez could teach Pineda his changeup and Pineda could teach Ramirez his slider, we’d be in great shape. Unfortunately it isn’t that simple.

    “Hal is cheap, No 2 ways about it. This organization has Always stressed depth, and that obviously ain’t the case any more.”

    It’s not that he’s cheap in the aggregate; he still spends a lot. But the money isn’t well-spent and since the team has no ML ready young players to shoulder the load and defray costs, it is fair for him to be criticized if the team on the field struggles.

    Being cheap and just not being a good baseball evaluator could be the fine line he’s walking.. I don’t think he’s being intentionally cheap, I think someone is sitting in his ear going ‘look at the star power on this team! There’s no way we miss the playoffs with this line up!’ and he’s like ‘oh well if that’s the case, let’s stand pat!’

    George could be scary at times with his independent thinking but Hal seems very dependent on his baseball people, who might all have different motives.

    Hal is attempting to Lower the current payroll. You can rationalize that all you want but it = Cheap.

  64. G. Love March 11th, 2013 at 1:47 pm

    Yes, the cheapness we’re all referring to is the intent to not have contracts that impede the budget goal next year. By doing that, they have missed on players the past 2-3 years that could’ve helped the team transition into the future.

    None of us are obstinate enough to act like Hal didn’t pay Mo, Andy, Kuroda, Ichiro and Youkilis this off season, but with the exception of Ichiro, they were all 1 year deals meant to come off the books so the Yankees can reap profits by being under 189 next season.

    Role players or starters who could’ve helped the team have been pushed away because of the budget mandate which puts profit over winning.

    They are spending money this year, but they’re unwillingness (at this point) to spend next year is hurting this years team and it’s options to fix it.

  65. mick March 11th, 2013 at 1:47 pm

    The move is Youk to 1b.
    More games are won and lost, in a subtle way, down at 1st.
    He can field the position better than Rivera.

  66. Rich in NJ March 11th, 2013 at 1:47 pm

    “If their 1 year contract experiment works then use it again next year.”

    According to Cot’s: 2012: $209,792,900

    Since $189m means $170m or so (if that is what they are going to do), and then factor in Cano’s likely raise, and some arbitration raises, 2012 provides very little guidance for 2013.

    If they aren’t going to go that, why bother with one year deals?

  78. chicken little March 11th, 2013 at 1:54 pm

    To me, what we are seeing now is the ramification of being cheap during the off-season. First thing to go is the bench. Hal and C-No-Money decided not to plug holes so they left the bench thin. Instead of having Darryl Strawberry to plug a hole when Chili Davis got hurt (1998), we have assorted crappy options (compounded by the fact that the Yanks forgot to get a catcher). Now, if Hal suddenly decides to spend money, no one is available (unless of course the Yankees offer the farm for Chase Headley).

    And as for Chipper, D-Lee, and the like, all that shows is that the Yanks somehow think that if they sign one of those guys it shows they are spending money (or by telling us they are interested, willing to spend money — just like with leaking the Cano stuff).

    This is just another reminder to fans of ‘The Evil Empire’s’ management teams commitment to the $ 189 number, cheap one year contracts for over the hill injury prone vets now and an infusion of low paid youth next year to replace all the old guys on one year deals.

    The writing is on the wall.

  83. G. Love March 11th, 2013 at 1:58 pm

    chicken little,

    The news this morning that we checked in on Chipper, Rolen and D-Lee reminded me of how the Red Sox used to try to appease their fans by leaking they were in on every great player who was traded only to have the deal fall apart because Theo was attempting to make it some ridiculous 4 team trade with too many moving parts.

    All that spin was intended to show the fans how hard they’re trying and to be complacent.

    We saw how the lip service worked out for Theo & the Red Sox in the end.

    This is just another reminder to fans of ‘The Evil Empire’s’ management teams commitment to the $ 189 number, cheap one year contracts for over the hill injury prone vets now and an infusion of low paid youth next year to replace all the old guys on one year deals.

    Some situations just call for a bunt.
    Why aren’t they taught how to?
    If you are making about around 70-75% of the time, bunting makes sense as chances are you will make an unproductive out anyway.

    And Jeter would not have hit into that DP, I guarantee it.

    G. Love — that was my thought to. These leaked names are intended to drum up interest in the fan base. It seems like a publicity effort. Particularly so with Chipper Jones. Asking the media to tweet out the Yankees interest in a player? If the team was truly interested in Chipper Jones, stealth-mode Cashman would certainly at least be able to secure his agent’s phone number. If Cashman doesn’t have and can’t find the phone number of an agent representing high-profile players, this team faces bigger issues.

    My big fear now is the Yanks get off to a bad start, fannies stop coming, and Hal has a moment of panic and trades the farm for assorted pieces of crap or signs Cano to a 10 year $250 mil deal. If the Yanks are going to stink I would rather have a future to look forward to, particularly since the only tradeable veteran who can bring something decent in return is Cano (obviously Jeter, Pettite, Mo, Sabathia, etc … aren’t going to be traded).

    Yanksfem,

    I think they think the Mo retirement announcement is going to force Yankee fans to show up at the stadium in some sort of pilgrimage to honor him.

    The fact that he doesn’t pitch every home game probably escapes them as no one is going to buy an early season ticket in the hopes they use Mo.

    That last home series is where people will spend the money to honor Mo as he’s sure to pitch at least once in that series especially if the post season isn’t looking good. I would hate for him to go out like the old Stadium went out in 2008 with no playoff baseball.

  124. blake March 11th, 2013 at 2:25 pm

    Dumb idea that would never be considered….Slade is a stud with an all star’s ceiling and needs his ABs and everyday playing time esp now that he’s healthy to make up for lost development time due to injury.

    You don’t take a young stud and make him a platoon player.

    Take Mesa north play him in CF everyday until Grandy gets back he’ll at least improve the OF defense and save runs to support the flyball tendacies of our staff and maybe Longie can help him lay off the breakers off the plate and he’ll run into a few fastballs.

    How’s Dellin doin’?

    Ok….he’s throwing strikes but like always there is just a wide variation in his fastball….one will be 95….the next will be 88….the next will be 90….he threw strikes but when you compare him to somebody like Jose Rameriez it’s just night and day the difference in consistency of delivery and stuff……

    Amazing how backwards the thinking is sometimes with the major league guys that run the Yanks.

    This re-occuring problem of underestimating our own guys and overestimating everybody else’s garbage.

    What exactly is Ben Francisco going to do for this team. For a team that is becoming cost conscious they sure don’t mind throwing 1 mil around on waste.

    What’s to stop CC Sabathia or anyone else diagnosed with metabolic syndrome or Type II Diabetes from buying two normal sized sugary drinks in place of the one large one?

    The whole thing is a game of charades.

    If there was any ever any real intention of some kind of move towards regulating sugary drinks and protecting children against obesity, then government officials should build on scientific studies showing the harmful effects of sugar and require warning labels like they do with cigarettes.

    But something tells me even if the label said something blunt and clear like “LOOK PEOPLE, THIS DRINK WILL MAKE YOU FAT”, people would still ignore it.

    We have 6 month olds who are fat. Where else do you see that in the animal kingdom in the wild?

    You could. If you want to go buy a bunch of soda, you can, that’s the point. It’s just that the Government is trying to fight against the soda distribution companies that create these huge unhealthy, poisonous, servings, and suggests them to the people.

    Slippery slope there 86. Regulations are a necessary evil because many humans, especially those who become CEOs, are unscrupulous borderline evil people. Big Food companies don’t ake food for nutritional purposes, but to make you eat more and more of it regardless of health impacts. Not the greatest way to keep a nation healthy. And you need healthy people!

    I’m not opposed to regulations on companies. I am opposed to the nanny-fication of elected officials who all know what’s best.

    For example, banning smoking in restaurants, good. Outlawing cigarettes altogether, bad. Nutritional information on packaging, good. Banning twinkies, bad.

    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.

    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.
