    Good move by Girardi putting Ichiro on the bench again. He has not looked good to this point.

    Give Boesch a chance to show what he can do.

    Martin signed a two year 17 mil….isn’t that what they are giving Wells….rather have Martin

    Hey, just how I posted I would do it today except Cervelli and Overbay are switched.

    Just saw this.. LOL. Thanks for posting, pat.

    Still scratching my head a little on the Hughes move.. the pen isn’t exactly spent. Seems like a panic move. I hope it ends up working out, Phil has pitched well against the Tigers in the past.. but it’s hard to tell the fans not to panic when you’re doing stuff like this, no?

  5. Doreen April 6th, 2013 at 1:14 pm

    Shame -

    I think it has as much to do with looking forward – no days off – so if they’ve got to keep taxing the pen, no relief for the relief, I guess. The long relievers were not going to available today. And there must be a reluctance to use Joba or DRob for 2 innings and you CANNOT use Mo for 2, that’s for sure.

    Not saying agree or disagree, but this might be their thinking.

    maine yankee-

    i’m taking a 12 year old to his first little league practice of the year at 2 pm here in cape elizabeth.

    you saying i should have him wear an extra layer?

    joeman-

    looking out the window 10 miles from the ballpark in portland i can see snow under the trees still, though the yard has green grass.

    i told nick in sf a long time ago that hughes wasn’t ready his first year when they brought him up for an emergency start because the weather was so cold that pitchers were missing starts and innings pitched.

    nick in sf and some of our sabermetric buddies made a lot of “draft eskimo” jokes maimly because they had never played in cold weather and had no clue :)

    trust me as a new england kid. playing baseball in april hurts when it’s really cold. injuries happen that wouldn’t normally happen. baseball is a hot weather game ideally.

  7. cs in la April 6th, 2013 at 1:21 pm

    Hughes and his back are a ticking time bomb. I’m just waiting for the inevitable DL stint, but hopefully, we can get a few wins out of him beforehand.

  8. tomingeorgia April 6th, 2013 at 1:26 pm

    randy,
    Only major sports injury I ever had resulted from being late to baseball practice in April in wstern Massachusetts, with snow still under the trees. No warm up, torn hamstring. Season over.

  9. randy l. April 6th, 2013 at 1:30 pm

    tomingeorgia-
    where in western ma ?

  10. Shame Spencer April 6th, 2013 at 1:32 pm

    Why is Warren not available today…? And yeah, Drob and Joba can go multiple innings. Drob’s barely seen any action this year.

  11. joeman April 6th, 2013 at 1:32 pm

    I’m in western Ct..still have one little pile left of snow on the north side of my house which one time was a 6 ft pile…..

  12. Shame Spencer April 6th, 2013 at 1:33 pm

    Even if it is to ‘protect the pen’ after 4 games in 5 days…. this is still a panic move. You can’t slice it as anything else.

  13. randy l. April 6th, 2013 at 1:33 pm

    kids growing up in california and florida and other warm weather localities just aren’t used to cold weather baseball. yeah they can learn to play in it, but it is an acquired skill. same with golf. it changes your swing. everything is slippery. you can’t grip the ball or bat. the dirt is hard. just not fun.

    Yeah. I’d personally rather have David Phelps make this start versus Phil before he’s all tuned up. We’ll see if he can repeat his performance last year in Detroit.

    Yeah, it’s like ‘Hey Phil, we’re struggling a bit and really need a win so .. ya know.. no pressure or anything in your first start which you haven’t had any time to prepare for.’

  24. tucker April 6th, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    Growing up in the SF Bay Area, I experienced plenty of cold baseball days in March and April when you thought twice about swinging on that fastball riding in on your hands. Maybe not New England cold, but not uncommon to play in the low 50s temp-wise.

    That’s one reason why Arizona is such a baseball mecca. Kids can play 9-10 months out of the year here (if you can withstand the 110-degree summer days).

  25. tucker April 6th, 2013 at 1:53 pm

    With Scherzer going today and Verlander tomorrow, there’s a good chance the Yanks end the weekend at 1-5 … Not a good start.

  26. jacksquat April 6th, 2013 at 1:54 pm

    Warren would be throwing on 2 days rest from 86 pitches. He would be max 1 inning.

    Jeter is coming off a major injury, no comparison.

    I don’t see how this could be true.. he could only give you 20 pitches?? Starters usually take their BP session after two days of rest anyway. Warren should absolutely be able to give you 40-50 pitches today.

    He said he was ready to go after they gave him the start. If he didn’t need a rehab start he wouldn’t have been scheduled for one. They’re panicking because after a 1-3 start they feel they need a win.

  33. jacksquat April 6th, 2013 at 2:10 pm

    Well in my opinion, if he can make a start today in the minors, he can do it in the majors. If his back isn’t ready, he would feel it in the minors just as easily. Like I said, it’s not like he was just going to throw bp fastballs in the minors. The alternative was to have Phelps start and bring up another minor league pitcher to be the long man in case Phelps got knocked around.

    Yanks and Cards in the F4 big big day.

  37. J. Alfred Prufrock April 6th, 2013 at 2:15 pm

    “Days after Tuesday’s season opener, J.P. Arencibia may still be having nightmares about R.A. Dickey’s fluttering knuckleball, which squirted by him for three passed balls. Arencibia had nine all of last season, so he will get the day off when Dickey makes his next start on Sunday. Veteran backstop Henry Blanco — a.k.a. “Hank White” — will try to snare Dickey’s pitch. Blanco caught Dickey with the New York Mets in 2010 and was signed in the off-season specifically for that reason. Dickey has said Blanco could catch him “with chopsticks.” It remains to be seen who will catch him the rest of the season, though. Gibbons has been reluctant to name him a personal catcher, suggesting Blanco and Arencibia will share the duties because he wants to keep Arencibia’s bat in the lineup whenever possible.”
    ///

    Doesn’t that silly Gibbons understand the catcher is a defense-only position? That offense from the catcher is not only unnecessary, but should be regarded with suspicion? Catchers who hit are merely flipping off their true function. Glad one of our rivals is dumb enough to want to get his catcher with a bat into the lineup.

    /pitchframin’ :D

    “the odds of going 1-5 are way better than they are of winning 1 or 2 games”

    So I’ll go out on a limb and say they take at least one of the next two. (It isn’t totally out of the realm of possibility that they take both. We’ve seen Verlander struggle before. But it would definitely require CC to be on his game.)

    =======

    This seems about right to me. I suspect that this move is about not bringing somebody up for a day, only to send them back down, when you could just bring Hughes up a little early. It’s not optimal, but it’s reasonable, given the current situation.

    I really doubt that the Yanks are panicking this early in the season. Things will look much better once the starters string together a few good starts.

  40. jmills April 6th, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    Man, Streetheart do an amazing version of, ” Under My Thumb.” No idea what is happening,….just got back with the Prelude.

  41. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 6th, 2013 at 2:20 pm

    Also, having both Phelps and Warren in the pen for the next two games anyway is a good idea since we have no idea about how many innings we’ll get out of Phil, and if CC isn’t on his game, getting a long man in early may be what the doctor calls for – depending on how today works out.

    I’m all for starting Phelps but also understand what I think is their reasoning for starting Phil.

  42. jmills April 6th, 2013 at 2:21 pm

    Alfred, as u kno, I gave my vibes for Blanco in the opener. The first job of a handler is to baby that arm up there on Gibson’s reduced hill. Offence,….soundly secondary.

  43. Nick in SF April 6th, 2013 at 2:23 pm

    Hi randy! Just wanted to thank you for the gratuitous and non-factual inclusion in your muddled anecdote. It’s nice to be (mis)remembered.

    Hope you’ve been well.

  44. Ghostwriter April 6th, 2013 at 2:23 pm

    I like the match-ups against Verlander a lot more than the match-ups against Scherzer. Phil will have to be very sharp today; runs will be at a premium.

  45. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 6th, 2013 at 2:23 pm

    Yay, Jays are winning! I just got in and forgot there’s early afternoon baseball, since our game is at 4. Think I’ll tune in until it’s time for me to depart again. I’ll miss the first hour of our game but hope I’ll find good things happening when I can join up.

    Yes good call, mon ami :D. Hey, how long is Bautista out for? Maybe he should consider writing his own version of “How to Make Friends and Influence People”:

    “Sometimes I have trouble more than other players dealing with my production being affected by somebody else’s mediocrity,” he said, a quote that will surely make the rounds among umpires. “If that’s my weakness as a player then I must be doing all right in other aspects.”

    Like I said, there’s no reason Warren can’t pitch today. He, Joba, Robertson.. all can give you 2 innings.

    You mentioned later that Hughes will have to be very sharp today.. that, to me, is a big part of the issue. He barely got ST innings. How likely is it that he’ll be sharp enough to navigate this Tigers offense?

    I hope he is.

  48. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 6th, 2013 at 2:34 pm

    Ghost, it will be interesting to see how long Phil goes, if he is struggling. It has to be really tricky for a manager to decide at what point to make that call. Obviously Joe wants the Yankees to start winning. But I’m sure he also doesn’t want to make it appear that he is panicking – which I don’t believe he is. If Phil is getting shelled very early and the score is mounting, does Joe pull him before the game is totally out of hand? Or does he let him go, knowing it could be the kiss of death for the game. Not so easy being a manager, especially he manager of the Yanks!

    ************

    Lackey has 8 Ks already? Did I hear that right???? Well let’s hope it remains a pyrhhic victory – and as I say that, Lackey does something to his arm! I am hoping he is okay. They said it doesn’t look good, but hopefully it’s nothing serious. I never want to see any team win/lose due to injuries to the opponent.

    Ace coming into the game. The Jays should be fine.

  49. UnKnown April 6th, 2013 at 2:35 pm

    “I’m all for starting Phelps” :roll:

    “Interesting because last year you bad mouthed the kid every chance you got. Constantly wanting FAHREEDY and Lowe to start over him.”

    To want people who have beenthere to start over a kid without much ML experience is not bad-mouthing the kid. And we all get to the party when we believe the party is ready to begin. I said I hoped Phelps would make the rotation this year, and I stand by that.

    Maybe you were at the Phelps party before the festivities were really ready to begin.

    Bautista needs to keep his mouth shut. Things even out, umpires are human ( if not,…maybe something better :) )

  58. charlestonchew April 6th, 2013 at 2:52 pm

    Lackey’s injury and Brian Roberts are both pretty sad =\

    But that’s baseball, I guess. Some guys aren’t built for it. At least Lackey was striking guys out and probably felt pretty good for at least a little while before he goes on the DL for perhaps the rest of the season.

  59. UnKnown April 6th, 2013 at 2:52 pm

    “Suuurrrreee….

    Backpeddling? Are you serious????????????

    Here’s a little lesson for you. Not everyone believes that someone from the minors is ready to play at the same time. It doesn’t mean that they don’t think they should ever play.

    Definition of BACKPEDAL

    : to retreat or move backward

    Show me one post where I said that Phelps should never be a starter. That would be backpedaling.

    Of course you can’t. Because I never said that.

  62. mick April 6th, 2013 at 2:53 pm

    Has Eppley been sent down or DFA’d?

    “Sounds like Lackey hurt his arm in his 1st start back. It’s been a long road for him. I kinda feel bad.”

    I agree.

  64. charlestonchew April 6th, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    I think it’s a mistake to root against the Red Sox this year given their poor lineup. We need to them to win against the AL East so that we have a better chance of surging past the rest of the teams when we get our guys back. The Red Sox won’t be at the top of the division this year, so it’s important for them to win against teams like the Blue Jays that actually have a shot of being there right now.

  65. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 6th, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    mick – I believe sent down.

  66. mick April 6th, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    Is Montero hurt? He looked like he pulled up lame last night going 1st to home and getting thrown out.

  67. J. Alfred Prufrock April 6th, 2013 at 2:55 pm

    Didn’t Lackey divorce his wife while she was going through breast c*ancer treatments? Not making any assumptions about that, but wasn’t that reported?

  68. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 6th, 2013 at 2:56 pm

    I believe I had read that about Lackey.

  69. UnKnown April 6th, 2013 at 2:56 pm

    Hughes pitching today could be as simple as needing another arm for today. If Hughes makes his AAA start and Phelps can’t make it through 2 innings Joe would be hurting for guys to finish the game.

    Of course it could also be a PANIC move. I like it, but understand why some don’t. I’m not reading into this move very much.

  70. RadioKev April 6th, 2013 at 2:57 pm

    Did you see the article about Scherzer and his brother’s suicide? A very emotional read. http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_.....er-pitches

    This could be true. Kelley went 2 yesterday and Warren 5 1/3 2 days ago.
    If Hughes can approach this game like he would another ST tuneup, he should be fine.

    Well in my opinion, if he can make a start today in the minors, he can do it in the majors. If his back isn’t ready, he would feel it in the minors just as easily. Like I said, it’s not like he was just going to throw bp fastballs in the minors. The alternative was to have Phelps start and bring up another minor league pitcher to be the long man in case Phelps got knocked around.
    =======

    This seems about right to me. I suspect that this move is about not bringing somebody up for a day, only to send them back down, when you could just bring Hughes up a little early. It’s not optimal, but it’s reasonable, given the current situation.

    ——————

    Like I said, there’s no reason Warren can’t pitch today. He, Joba, Robertson.. all can give you 2 innings.

    You mentioned later that Hughes will have to be very sharp today.. that, to me, is a big part of the issue. He barely got ST innings. How likely is it that he’ll be sharp enough to navigate this Tigers offense?

    I hope he is.
    ==================

    That’s a good point Hughes’ lack of work in ST. I suspect that they are only planning on using Hughes for a 4-5 innings anyway, depending on pitch count. It seems to me to that they are just trying to spare the blullpen as many innings as Hughes can provide. I syuspect that Warren is fairly likely to get into today’s game at some point.

    My point is that there are a number of plausible explanations for this move, aside from panic. In fact, this move strikes me as being the opposite of panic, because nobody can realistically expect much more from Hughes than 5 solid innings, given that he is likely on a tight pitch count. A panic move would be to call up Nuno, burning one of his options, only to send him back down on Sunday.

    “Here’s a little lesson for you.”

    Your fascination with all caps and bold letters doesn’t do anything but show that you are being defensive and acknowledges that you are wrong. It is also very obnoxious.

    “Show me one post where I said that Phelps should never be a starter.”

    :lol: I’m calling you out on the fact that you were looking for every chance possible to beat Phelps over the head with a sledgehammer, and now you are trying to portray how much you just love Phelps. Whatever, it’s just very funny. :lol:

    Show me ONE post where I beat him over the head with a sledgehammer.

    If not, that makes you a liar.

    Now go play in traffic.

    “Now go play in traffic.”

    You sure you didn’t want to caps and bold that statement. It would have really drove the point home. :lol:

    I don’t need to waste my time on you, anyone who was following the Phelps drama last year knows that you hated the kid. And that includes you. Now you’re being a fraud.

    next

    You got a point. It’s dumb and panicky.
