    Chad, you were clearly paying attention at your video class. Thanks. Well done.

    It will surprise me if Jeter’s return is smooth. Cortisone is a temporary pain relieving care. That doesn’t fix what was bothersome. The fact that they gave him an injection tells me the problem was relatively painful and problematic.

    I agree, great job on the video Chad.

    Jeter’s going to be under a microscope.

    Did they shell out for a steadicam?

    Jeter is going to play. It’s going to bother him and I see a lot of ice packs in his future, but its not going to keep him off the field for any length of time. Just as long as he doesn’t re-injure it.

    I can’t access the video on my phone. Would someone be so kind as to sum up what was said?

    Yankeefeminista -

    Girardi said Jeter will be on the field tomorrow hitting and doing drills. they will see how he does and figure how when he should play and that the next week or so will determine how they’re going to go forward with him.

    He can’t really speculate about when he’ll be ready, they have to see how he responds to the medication, but that what’s he’s going through is normal, just what you have to go through coming back from an injury like this. He will eventually turn the corner, but you don’t really know when. They will continue to talk to trainer, the doctors and Cash, and just keep a close watch on him, watch for signs.

    Thanks Doreen

    I can’t access video either.

  10. yankeefeminista March 21st, 2013 at 6:47 pm

    Thanks much, Doreen.

    I hope Jeter will also be advised to eat foods and take supplements that expedite healing and don’t that just dont mask symptoms like cortisone does.

    Don’t *just mask

    Don’t hold your breath, YF. ;)

    So, could/ will we go with something like this?

    VS a lefty: Jeter-SS
    Ichiro- LF ( Or Gardy, CF)
    Cano- 2B
    Youk – 1B
    DH- Rivera/Boesh/Hafner
    Musty- 3B
    Mesa- RF
    Gardy- CF ( Or Ichiro, LF)
    Cerveli- C
    ( something along those lines)

    Vs a Righty: Jeter, SS
    Ichiro, LF ( or Gardy)
    Cano, 2B
    Hafner, DH
    Youk, 3B
    Rivera, 1B ( musty)
    RF- Boesh, possibly Mesa or musty
    Gardy- CF
    Cerveli- C

    Not sure about all the lefties up top, or how joe will structure the lineup, but something along those lines.

    Cabral and Tex to the 60 day DL, Put Rivera and Musty on the 40. Mesa and Boesch already on the 40 man.

    Nunez becomes Utility INF, could be used vs lefties.
    Musty could play 3b, 1b? OF?
    Mesa used for OF
    Stewart backup catcher.

    Maybe we decide to go with one less in the bullpen and that could add a spot for nix to be another Utility INF. Not sure if this is possible with 40 man roster.

    You’re welcome, Tar and YF, btw. :)

  15. Doreen March 21st, 2013 at 6:54 pm


    I’m gonna let Girardi have the headache!

    I’ll just tune in and see what he comes up with. I don’t envy the guy, but then again, he’s had a fairly easy job making out most of his lineup during his tenure as manager, hasn’t he? Even last year, he had a core lineup that he fit other pieces around. This year he’s got bupkus right now. Well, Robbie in the 3 hole. Is that a given even?

    Doreen, I believe players are always trying to get that little extra, so hopefully they and their advisers and nutritionists are into alternative medicine. After seeing Alex’s natural sups regimen, I’d think most players are aware of the perks of taking omegas/ fish oils and aminos to help with inflammation/tissue and herbs to heal bones.

  17. Doreen March 21st, 2013 at 7:04 pm

    Yankeefeminista –

    Alex is ahead of the curve, I think.

  18. yankeefeminista March 21st, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    Seems like lots of them take mega-sups.
