    Stewart? Come on :x

  2. Jerkface April 10th, 2013 at 3:32 pm

    Also find it interesting that Ichiro is the guy getting sat most so far. Obviously he deserves it given his very slow start, but he is by far the most prominent outfielder on the Yankees with grandy out.

  3. blake April 10th, 2013 at 3:33 pm

    so much for Cervelli being the starter

  4. kd April 10th, 2013 at 3:33 pm

    better pitcher right now: nova or nuno?

  5. CountryClub April 10th, 2013 at 3:33 pm

    If Culver can hit for power (even hitting .250) he becomes a legit prospect instantly. A defensive SS with power would be welcomed with open arms. Obv we’re talking about very small samples, but it’ll be worth monitoring.

    Looks like Girardi is keeping his word about them going every other day for the first month.

  7. Carly April 10th, 2013 at 3:37 pm

    please pitch well tonight Nova

  8. ac1 April 10th, 2013 at 3:37 pm

    Cervelli is hitting over .300, has a homerun and five RBIs in playing 5 games?

    I think Girardi needs to quickly realize Cervelli IS the starter on this team…

  9. ac1 April 10th, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    Also, if we get another stinker from Nova, they should consider shipping him back to AAA to work, and let Phelps get the starts he EARNED in ST.

  10. Rich in NJ April 10th, 2013 at 3:42 pm

    Girardi probably knows it’s going to rain and is just putting Stew in to mess with us.

  11. kd April 10th, 2013 at 3:46 pm

    you’re right rich. probably thinking double header tomorrow

  12. fantasygame101 April 10th, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    Groundball outs not strikeout should be nova objectives. When he decided to strike every batter outs, that was the beginning of his decline.

  13. MichiganYankee April 10th, 2013 at 4:11 pm

    Tomorrow’s forecast is worse than today’s. They’ll do everything possible to get the game in tonight. The Tigers just started after a 2.5-hour-plus delay.

  14. ron April 10th, 2013 at 4:13 pm

    Wells is just too hot to sit,and is hitting with power,good on defense.
    The only issue is cleveland is throwing a rh pitcher tonight,but wells is ops’ing 1.208 against righties,1.100 against lefties.
    Ichiro is ops’ing .481 against righties.
    Gardner ops’ing .767 against righties.

  15. ron April 10th, 2013 at 4:14 pm

    Short version,it makes total sense to sit ichiro.

  16. Bad Scooter April 10th, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    Ichiro is also 39 years old folks. He’s not going to play 162 games.

  17. austinmac April 10th, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    The weather tomorrow looks worse than tonight.

    A question was asked the other day what happens when Granderson returns. The signs tell me Ichiro better start hitting or his playing time will likely be the first to suffer. I still wonder about the two year contract.

  18. blake April 10th, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    Michael Pineda (shoulder) faced hitters for the first time since surgery in a round of scheduled live batting practice on Tuesday. No word on how many pitches he threw or anything like that, but it’s still really good news. Big step in the rehab process.

    http://riveraveblues.com/2013/.....eda-84877/

    this is great news….I’m cautiously optimistic…..you can’t count on it but it would certainly be a huge lift if he came back throwing gas in the 2nd half

    ————————–

    I’m cautious too…don’t expect him to impact this year but would love it if he did

  20. Jerkface April 10th, 2013 at 4:29 pm

    I’ll get optimistic about Pineda when we get some radar readings on him. That he is progressing in his rehab is nice, but expected. He hasn’t gotten to the part that determines if he is a good pitcher yet.

  21. Rich in NJ April 10th, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    So if it’s more likely that they play tonight than tomorrow, playing Stew makes even less sense.

  22. blake April 10th, 2013 at 4:45 pm

    “I’ll get optimistic about Pineda when we get some radar readings on him. That he is progressing in his rehab is nice, but expected. He hasn’t gotten to the part that determines if he is a good pitcher yet.”

    of course not….but I’d rather here good news than bad news.

  23. austinmac April 10th, 2013 at 4:47 pm

    I agree with JF on Pineda. I will be optimistic when I hear he is throwing 95 again. It would surpise me if he will be able to throw at that velocity, at least anytime soon.

  24. theREALkevin April 10th, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    Wow Montero is seriously struggling so far this year. Hope he turns it around soon. If this keeps up for a while I might actually have to admit I was wrong about him

  25. Nick in SF April 10th, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    Hamilton hits a rocket to center-left, Cespedes tracks it down and then doubles Pujols, who had already passed 2nd base, off at first.

    LOL!!

  27. Rich in NJ April 10th, 2013 at 4:50 pm

    Not only is it about velo, but the ability to sustain it for 6 or 7 IP.

    Wow.

  29. Jerkface April 10th, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    @based_ball 1m

    now protected by Josh Hamilton, Albert Pujols is seeing baseball’s lowest rate of pitches in the strike zone

  30. Nick in SF April 10th, 2013 at 4:58 pm

    At this point I should mention that I have inadvertently been watching a replay of last night’s A’s/Angels game, so the world has already digested and slept on that defensive gem by Cespedes. Trout just hit a triple but I’m flipping over to the live Giants game. :oops:

  31. blake April 10th, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    Until Hamilton shows that he’s not an auto out why would anybody throw Pujols a strike

  32. Rich in NJ April 10th, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    Not signing Cespedes may turn out to be their biggest omission of the last 10 years.

    Lol, it’s all good those of us on East Coast time were sleepin’ ;)

    Thank god ESPN loops the same programing for 24 hours!!

  34. Nick in SF April 10th, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    I would love to know what their decision-making process was on Cespedes and Soler.

  35. Nick in SF April 10th, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    And Yu Darvish, for that matter.

  36. Nick in SF April 10th, 2013 at 5:07 pm

    It’s a good thing I didn’t start live-tweeting that game at my brand new twitter account, https://twitter.com/sftweeindieguy.

    :oops:

  37. Jerkface April 10th, 2013 at 5:08 pm

    You really know how to promote. I’m waiting for more candid photos of yankee fans on the street.

  38. Shame Spencer April 10th, 2013 at 5:08 pm

    Whoa… FOLLOW.

  39. Shame Spencer April 10th, 2013 at 5:09 pm

    If you team up with Yankee Jesus I think you guys can really get something going…

    I’m waiting until I have 10 followers to ramp up the content. I have a backlog of photos that I was too lazy to post to flickr.

    They cost money on the 2014 books….. Pass

  43. jacksquat April 10th, 2013 at 5:26 pm

    I’ll trade Nova for Montero right now, not going any higher.

  44. blake April 10th, 2013 at 5:28 pm

    @ESPNNYYankees: Weather outlook: Poor http://t.co/4mc8FNQMIY

    Apparently Hughes has a stomach big

  45. blake April 10th, 2013 at 5:28 pm

    Stomach bug….sorry Joba has a stomach big

  46. Nick in SF April 10th, 2013 at 5:28 pm

    Barry Zito just knocked in Andres Torres in a little oppo hit to left field. #livebaseball

  47. Rich in NJ April 10th, 2013 at 5:34 pm

    They reportedly made a pretty decent offer on Soler.

    I haven’t heard specifics…..it wasn’t a closed bid though and the deal the Cubs have him will be extremely team friendly if he makes it

  49. dayglo April 10th, 2013 at 6:58 pm

    Re: Stewart… Maybe it’s Joe’s way of keeping Cervelli honest and concentrating on his defense. Hopefully if it’s a close game then Stewart will be pinch hit for.
