TIME/TV: 3:10 p.m., YES Network

WEATHER: Once again, the Yankees will try to dodge a potential rain out. All I’ve heard this week is that “it never rains here,” yet it’s rained every day of this series.

UMPIRES: HP Phil Cuzzi, 1B Tom Hallion, 2B Ron Kulpa, 3B Chris Guccione

IN A PINCH: Brennan Boesch drove in the game-winning run last night with a ninth-inning infield single. It was the first go-ahead pinch-hit RBI by a Yankee with two outs in the ninth inning or later since Marcus Thames on July 4, 2010 against Toronto (a walk-off RBI single in the 10th). Boesch was the first Yankee to accomplish the feat on the road since Matt Nokes in 1993.

THAT’S A WRAP: The Yankees are 6-4 in series finales this season. They are 2-2 in finales on the road and 2-2 in the third game of a three-game series when the two teams split the first two games.

THE GREATEST: Mariano Rivera has converted 12 consecutive save opportunities. That matches his second-longest streak to open a season (he converted his first 28 save opportunities in 2008 and his first 12 in 2004).

RAIN GO AWAY: The tarp came on the field about 15 minutes ago, and almost immediately came off when a very quick — but significant — shower went away quickly. Looks like the game will start at least fairly close to on time.

UPDATE, 3:29 p.m.: RBI single by Vernon Wells and it’s 1-0 Yankees in the first.

UPDATE, 3:42 p.m.: I thought Fowler was out when I saw it live. I think he was safe now that I’ve seen a few replays. But that was an awfully close play at the plate. It’s now 1-1.

UPDATE, 4:20 p.m.: Chris Nelson’s double and Chris Stewart’s sac fly have the Yankees in the lead, 2-1. Meahwhile, CC Sabathia struggles with curveballs. If you’re ever pitching to him, all breaking balls all the time.

UPDATE, 4:28 p.m.: Sabathia works a 1-2-3 fourth inning, but now the tarp is coming onto the field.

UPDATE, 5:27 p.m.: Tarp is off the field. Still waiting for a start time. Have to assume Sabathia is finished. Wonder if there’s any chance he could come back on short rest to start in the doubleheader on Monday.

UPDATE, 5:39 p.m.: Curtis Granderson is in right field for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre tonight. Zoilo Almonte is in center.

UPDATE, 5:49 p.m.: We’ve entered one of those weird worlds where the tarp is coming on the field despite the fact it’s not raining. Apparently they’re expecting rain soon. I’m expecting to catch a flight in six hours.

UPDATE, 6:13 p.m.: Scheduled to resume at 6:25 p.m. ET. Looks like that’s Adam Warren heading to the bullpen to warm up. The Rockies have a right-hander getting loose.

UPDATE, 6:31 p.m.: Play resumes with two quick outs, then solo homer by Cano, his ninth of the season.

UPDATE, 6:58 p.m.: Warren walks two in a row, so the Yankees are going to Boone Logan to face the lefty Carlos Gonzalez. It’s a double switch, with Ichiro Suzuki replacing Ben Francisco in right field.

UPDATE, 7:13 p.m.: Claiborne working for a second consecutive day. He allowed his first big league hit, then started his first big league double play. The kid’s looked awfully good so far.

UPDATE, 7:21 p.m.: I actually really like this move by Girardi, going with Robertson to face pinch hitter Todd Helton with two on and two outs in the seventh. It’s another double switch with Brennan Boesch replacing Ichiro in right. Girardi always talks about how guys like Robertson and Joba Chamberlain can get lefties, and now he’s actually acting on that.

    Just reading Torre’s full statement now on the Hernandez call… this seems like a glaring issue:

    “Home and away broadcast feeds are available for all uses of instant replay, and they were available to the crew last night. Given what we saw, we recognize that an improper call was made. Perfection is an impossible standard in any endeavor, but our goal is always to get the calls right. Earlier this morning, we began the process of speaking with the crew to thoroughly review all the circumstances surrounding last night’s decision.

    Instead of reviewing the review process they’re just reviewing how they came to the (obviously wrong) decision. Awesome.

    This is MLBs version of progress.

    In a best case scenario I think the yanks and the players involved would be best getting full development at certain levels as opposed to quick promotions.

    For example I’d like to see Jose Ramirez, Turley, Nuding, Tracy picth all year in AA and refine and master whatever their assignments are and become reliable every 5th day take the ball late into games starters. I’d also like to see Bleich get another shot in the rotation even if it means continuing with the 6 man rotation. I’d much prefer to see those guys throw 130-140 innings as opposed to prematurely move them up because of a few hot starts.

    Murphy on the other hand needs to be promoted soon. He should be in Scranton within the next month at the rate he’s going. Another 100-150 ABs and he should be ready. By that time I think Sanchez will be ready for a promotion as well.

    I would however like to see Slade and Tyler Austin spend the whole season in Trenton and get their 500 Abs at the AA level. I think it’s very important for them to get solid base underneath them as far as getting their games consistent and ready for prime time next year.

    Refsnyder most likely will move up with Sanchez and take over 2B in Trenton with maybe Pirela moving to Scranton in a utility role or playing 2b with Joseph moving over to 3B and Adams up with the big club.

    De Paula I think will definitely be promoted at this rate. Although he still needs to smooth some things out he clearly also needs to be challenged and a move up to Tampa is in order.

    I like that Cotham is up in Scranton as he was 1 of my sleeper SP this year and I think he’s ready to come on. In fact he, Brett Marshall and Dellin if he can keep this going along with Stoneburner give the Yanks some nice arms at the uppermost levels of the systems.

    A well timed rain delay… Maybe I will be home in time to catch most of the game!

    luis -

    If they didn’t trade any of the players that they traded in the last several years, you’re talking about an entirely different team.

    But you still can’t know how that entirely different team would be faring, nor any of the those players on that team.

    If the Yankees are so awful at developing players, isn’t it arguable that IPK would never have had a 20-win season? Isn’t it arguable that Melky would still be a 4th outfielder? Isn’t it possible that AJax would not have gotten past the strikeouts? And also arguable that Montero would be the guy being eased in, or failing in some other way? If the Yankees can’t develop players, that is?

    ***

    Shame – I agree – the best case scenario is you have the best system in place to begin with (replays).

  5. jacksquat May 9th, 2013 at 3:19 pm

    I believe whenever a prospect is dominating their current level for at least half a season, in most cases they should be moved up. You have to keep challenging guys.

  6. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 9th, 2013 at 3:20 pm

    repost:

    “Does Jorge Posada mean anything to you Trish?

    We won 4 titles with Posada. He was offense over defense. He wasn’t terrible but he wasn’t Yadier Molina”

    I always considered Posada a very good defender. And yes he was great offensively.

    However, I asked you not to change my hypothetical in your response. Jorge was far from a “so-so” defender.

    I asked whether you’d go with so-so offense or so-so defense at the position of catcher if the other trait was very good.

    There is obviously no right or wrong answer.

    I said I’d always take the defense – which I would.

    What about pitchers? Do you think pitchers should finish levels off before being moved up?

    Doreen,

    If they had enough patience, those kids would have panned out… More importantly, while the old core was still able to take the brunt of the responsability… Now we can’t afford to do that.

  10. Hassey May 9th, 2013 at 3:23 pm

    thought Nix would get thrown out after rounding first too far on the walk

  11. Shame Spencer May 9th, 2013 at 3:24 pm

    You know what I think part of the issue is with Romine and the fan push to see him play more..? The Yankees have touted their system for a while, specifically their catching depth. Romine was actually mentioned as a big reason why trading Montero was a solid move.

    I think a lot of people are just feeling like this is the moment to put up or shut up, so to speak.

    Cevelli isn’t out indefinitely. Romine may only be up here for 7 weeks or so. Everyone realizes he’d be in AAA without the Cervelli injury. This is a perfect excuse to have him play and test him out to see if he’d be a viable option to split time next season.

    what

  24. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 9th, 2013 at 3:31 pm

    Doreen, I am in agreement with just about everything you post. But when people fight you tooth and nail, it shows the futility sometimes in even attempting to discuss it. It’s apparent that what some posters view as rational and well-though-out, others see as totally ridiculous – and vice versa. I can only assume that both sides come to their decisions honestly and are not affected by their dislike of the manager, GM, etc.

    I think Girardi is going carefully with Romine, and I see no problem with that. I also think that if things had gone swimmingly his first game out, he probably would have been in sooner. It’s really not a big deal because Girardi first and foremost wants his team to win. Romine is here for quite a while. There would be no percentage in him ignoring Romine and wearing out Stewart. He felt it was best to do it he way he did. If the Yanks had all of their players but Cervelli and had a 3 or 4 game lead right now, with a ton of runs in, I could definitely understand criticism if he took Romine out last night. But none of that is the case right now.

    jacksquat said it best when he said that everything here is nothing more than a matter of opinion and the difficulty starts when someone actually thinks that what they are saying is just not subject to question.

  25. Josh Lueke fan May 9th, 2013 at 3:31 pm

    Shame, good point in your 3:24 post about expectations and wanting to see the talk about these players come to fruition (in pinstripes).

    Luis -

    I’m being obtuse with you, and I know I am. But there’s a disconnect with the hopes of how these players would have been so great for the Yankees, and yet the feeling here that the Yankees don’t develop their players well.

    For the record, I wanted to see each and every one of those 4 that I mentioned play here in New York and was disappointed when they were traded. I did (do) like Granderson, so that tempered that move a little for me.

    time to tune in the game…

  31. yanks61 May 9th, 2013 at 3:35 pm

    Just a quick drop by to say Go Yanks! and to briefly reflect on the angst some posters had last night on a batting Romine ninth.

    I remember, as a kid, being scandalized by Stengel batting Larsen ahead of a young Bobby Richardson during the 1957 season. Of course Larsen was probably a better hitter than Bobby at that point in their respective careers! Still, Bobby didn’t seem greatly affected in spite of Casey’s “insult” and went on to play nine years (though he never did became a great hitter in spite a few brief surges – especially in the WS!)

    Romine looks like he’s a fine catcher and I’m sure he’s a tough kid. Personally, I liked Joe G’s idea. Even if a move like that is only a possible marginal advantage, why not take it?

    Anyway, as I say, Go Yanks! I hope you all enjoy the game.

  32. Hassey May 9th, 2013 at 3:35 pm

    could it possibly cost us a game to give a single-A outfielder Francisco’s roster spot in one game and let him lap up the spotlight. What could s/he do that would be so much worse than what Francisco offers? The kind of shot that gave Appollo gave Rocky

    They would have messed them up somehow. No?

    =======================

    The problem they have had recently is rushing them and asking inmediate results from them… And an unwillingness to endure growing pains… They traded Ajax, because they wanted a finished product rather than endure the growing pains… Same goes with IPK… Their biggest flaw is not having the patience to see the whole process go through… Especially when they actually could afford it ( old core still productive ) and even though they didn’t realized it ( maybe they did ), they needed to start the guard change…they have shown patience with two players that haven’t produced results from the beginning, Cano and Hughes… Those are the exception to the rule… Others have been here out of necessity…

  36. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 9th, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    Shame – just saw your post above. The other side of that coin is that kids who have been thrown in too soon and haven’t succeeded have been booed off this forum anyway, and probably shown their way back down.

    I don’t have any problem with the Yankees touting certain players. Remember, Romine wouldn’t be here yet if Cervelli didn’t get hurt, no matter how much touting he’s gotten. I’d rather they go slow with him if they feel the need and give him more chance to succeed.

    That said, last night’s outing he looked so good. That could be a function of all the time he took to work out with the pitchers in the dugout, getting to know their arsenal, etc. I’m betting we’re going to being seeing more of him, rather than less.

    :)

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

    When we posted on the NY Times we had this fun thing we did where everyone “adopted” their favorite player and then cheered on that player for the season. Usually someone picked both a position player and a pitcher. I don’t know if anyone would want to do that here, but I would be happy to start a list if anyone did. For instance, I would guess that igotid88 would grab Hughes – or maybe be willing to share him with PatM.

    I would definitely want Vernon Wells, even if his playing time here ends up being short. :)

    Anyone?

  37. hardwired7 May 9th, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    “give a single-A outfielder Francisco’s roster spot in one game and let him lap up the spotlight”

    Hell, I think they could give one of us LoHudders a shot and get a similar WAR result.

  38. Doreen May 9th, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    Trisha -

    Yeah. At some point, it’s just hearing yourself type… LOL

    For me, there is a lot more gray area than there is for some. It bothers me when people ascribe certain biases or attributes to people they’ve never met or spoken to, and then those narratives seem to take on a life of their own. Also, it’s really hard to tell sometimes how serious people are here, or whether they’re just pulling your chain, so to speak.

    As long as no one insults each other.

    And now, really, time to tune into the game! LOL

  39. ac1 May 9th, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    I know CC is a smart guy, but no matter what everyone tries to say about mixing pitches, if he keeps throwing an 89 mph fastball, he is in trouble.

  40. Shame Spencer May 9th, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    Doreen May 9th, 2013 at 3:34 pm

    Shame, good point in your 3:24 post about expectations and wanting to see the talk about these players come to fruition (in pinstripes).

    —————————

    And I want to be sure to clarify something here: I don’t feel people should be so up in arms about the fans taking the ‘put up or shut up’ approach when that’s basically what we heard from Hal this off season: that the young players in the system were going to have to step up. He said so almost verbatim. The Yankees create a lot of their own rhetoric and then act like the fans invented it of their own accord. Couple that with the fact that Stewart is obviously not the future of this club, and you’re going to get a fair bit of grumbling.

    I just don’t like the idea of starting our young guys under ‘succeed or be benched’ circumstances. It seems like Romine got an out of whack Pettitte to catch and was held responsible for that. It was an organizational/managerial choice to pair Romine with a pitcher that likes his games called, Pettitte didn’t have it, and then Romine was left to ride the pine. The perception is that it isn’t the fans that lack patience, but the org.

  47. luis May 9th, 2013 at 3:46 pm

    Doreen,

    One more thing… Since I joined the blog, I have been preaching that we needed to start replacing the old core… I am a prospect hugger, I don’t deny it… I am a little frustrated that it has taken so long for that to happen and here we are with most of it gone, injured or declining… This is mostly what makes me mad, I want my team to do well always…

  48. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 9th, 2013 at 3:47 pm

    Josh Lueke, do you think that CC’s decreased velocity is a function of some injury he’s not admitting to, or do you think it’s a function of his just wearing down? Do you think the velocity is going to get back up there?

    luis -

    IPK was specifically asked for by Arizona. No IPK, no deal, I think it was. I think that for the Yankees, it was a deal to GET Granderson, not to rid themselves of the players they traded. They didn’t go shopping for Granderson, either. They just found he was available and did it. It cost them two excellent prospects in IPK and AJax, and a who cares player in Phil Coke. I think Granderson was worth it; hindsight is 20-20 and no one knows how IPK and AJax might have done here.

    The Montero trade was a headscratcher for me. Didn’t even know who Pineda was at the time. But not dwelling on that one it’s been over-exposed here. but it is worth to note that most of MLB thought it was a good trade at the time, and it’s really a “well, I guess we’ll see eventually” for me right now.

    The Melky trade. At the time, while I would have not traded him, I can understand why they did, and in truth he had an awful year in Atlanta. They didn’t gain all that much from that trade. It wasn’t a good one, even if Melky simply stayed at the same place he was. He had a flair for the dramatic. ANd I just liked him. Thought he was always just missing a .300 season at the time.

    There’s just a problem with trying to re-write history from the present, knowing more facts than you knew at the time.

    I’d love to think that all these players were still here and being a part of a great Yankee team.

    But, I’m kinda liking this team right now. They’re showing some real grit. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. :)

    I think the amount of innings pitched CC has had over the past several years, the wear and tear has reduced his velocity. I don’t think he’s getting it back… without some of Big Papi’s milkshakes.

  55. luis May 9th, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    Doreen,

    Me too… They are scrappy and have heart

  56. ac1 May 9th, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    pitching is what will keep us solvent…

    Hughes is going to have a good contract year, Kuroda is great, CC can be great, Pettitte needs to get back on track, and we have a 5th of either Nova/Phelps and maybe Pineda.

    “Hanrahan to the 60 day DL.

    Wow.

    And you had to hear he sportscasters on EEI calling out David Ortiz. They basically said it was fair to question him based on his torrid hitting at the age of 37 AND his name being on the 2003 report.

    Here’s what bothered me a little. One of the guys, in talking about PEDs, said that even if Ortiz is juicing it doesn’t bother him, because juicing doesn’t bother him – guys getting caught does because “it disrupts the entire team.” With that theory, every player might as well juice since nobody really has the right to potentially derail another player’s career by using PEDs. They both agreed though that both Selig and the players union created this monster by choosing to ignore it for the longest while.

  61. Josh Lueke fan May 9th, 2013 at 3:57 pm

  70. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 9th, 2013 at 4:04 pm

    Josh Lueke – one thing that is extremely obvious is that the “win now” mentality puts the organization in the bind it unfortunately created. So as a fan you can either choose to understand it, though you might not like it, or you can kick and scream your way through every season ’til you’re blue in the face, despite realizing it’s not likely to change soon.

    It appears to me, anyway, that the Yankees will continue to combine their team with veteran players and some “cast offs” and probably won’t grab kids from down below until they feel they are totally ready to succeed at this level. You don’t have to like it, but it helps to understand it. Some of that could be a function of what happened in 2008, and also the Joba run-around.

  71. blake May 9th, 2013 at 4:04 pm

    And this is sort of the issue with the fixation on Romine. Romine is not replacing Jorge Posada. He’s not even replacing Cervelli in our minds. He’d be replacing Christ (typo but it stay) Stewart and that in and of it self could be considered ‘easing the kid in.’ The replacement level he needs to match is at it’s absolute lowest, making this the perfect opportunity to play him without pressure.

  93. Josh Lueke fan May 9th, 2013 at 4:11 pm

    I am a supporter of the win-now mentality. I want to win always. “Winning is second only to breathing.” However, when you have wasted roster spots like Francisco, that roster spot is better served with a kid with potential. Same with Nix. He is a wasted roster spot as an everyday starter. We can surely use someone in the minors that will provide as much if not more than Nix. I understand that with all the injuries, especially to Nunez, he needs to be on the roster. But when everyone is healthy, his playing time needs to be drastically reduced, unlike last year.

  94. blake May 9th, 2013 at 4:12 pm

    Congrats on hit #1500 for Robbie…..has done it in the same number of seasons as Jeter did (9). But he’s lazy and doesn’t play hard …..

  98. Josh Lueke fan May 9th, 2013 at 4:14 pm

    You are exactly correct, Shame. And that’s rarely the case.

    But Joe Girardi is fixated on playing players with little value like Stewart. When Cervelli was healthy, he was switching them daily even though Cervelli was putting together professional plate appearances, drawing walks, and hitting the ball.

  101. Josh Lueke fan May 9th, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    I agree ac1. Nix is fine, but NOT in an everyday capacity. Last year, he played a lot with Girardi’s idiotic half days off.

    When is Girardi going to learn, his half days off and full days off dont do anything to prevent injuries. He may as well play our best possible players as much as possible (with a couple days off here and there) to give the team the best opportunity to win games.

    If they had enough patience, those kids would have panned out… More importantly, while the old core was still able to take the brunt of the responsibility… Now we can’t afford to do that.

    Luis, I believe I understand what you mean. “Development” would be keeping the players long enough for them to at least prove whether or not they are really major league players. Understood.
    I would agree that bringing one player along at a time or even two among a group of proven vets makes it easier on the player as the vets can pick up his slack.
    Sounds like a sane, sound, reasonable way to develop talent in any field.
    I’m sure in this case, you’re thinking of players like Clippard, Kennedy, Montero, Jackson, etal.
    I believe we are on the same page and I could meet you at that level.

  155. ObviousMan May 9th, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    Trisha,

    These moron Cashman haters said the down period would start three years ago. Ever since its been, ” just wait until next year. The yankees will suck next year.” Meanwhile the yankees keep on winning. 99% of the negative Nellie ” realistic!” Yankee fans don’t have the first clue about assembling or managing a baseball team. I think complaining about the yankees gives them a hard on, cuz they never stop doing it.

    yup….

    hard to complain right now – even as brutal as it is to see that lineup at times, they are finding ways to win games and Girardi is a part of that early success (I’ll let someone else determine how much of it)

    blake, not that you care about my opinion of what you post, but I want to say that I think you’ve turned into one of the most level-headed and fair posters here. At different points I thought you were getting pretty negative (maybe I was misreading you) but I appreciate your fairness. What’s nice about it is that I think you are seen as pretty lucid by fans of all persuasions, so perhaps your positive takes might open some eyes. Maybe not, but I still think you’re rocking.

  166. ObviousMan May 9th, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    Luis said, and I quote, that Vernon wells may have been one of the worst moves Cashman made, and mind you, this comes from a guy that thinks Cashman is the worst GM in the history of the game.

    Go Nostradamus! I’ll never doubt you again.

    Eh. They may or may not have a down period. THey may never be a dynasty again (baseball is different than it was in the mid-90s). It’s of no matter to me. It’s definitely infinitely more fun when they’re winning.

    But maybe it’s time for a down period anyway. A time to reset and to examine expectations. When a team gets booed in the playoffs, something is wrong in the cosmos. No matter how poorly they represented in that Detroit series, how do you justify booing your team? One of only 4 remaining teams. How do you boo that??? yeah, yeah, it was disappointing and frustrating. And the bats disappeared. All of that. But no one boos their playoff team. We are spoiled. We are the beast that needs more more more more more. Maybe it is time to regroup.

    Apparently you can overdose on winning. ;)

    And down period might just mean, no playoffs, but a slightly above .500 season for a while.

    If winning isn’t enough and we are to concentrate on all the errors of the past, how can you enjoy the season?
    The constant reminding of the “errors” of Cashman, Girardi and Hal’s ways doesn’t accomplish anything.
    I’d say the “win now” attitude is what made the Yankees the Yankees thru the decades.
    There is no assurance the youth will carry the mantle and NY fans cannot wait.

    That’s what fans do, they boo when they aren’t happy with the results. We boo opposing players, even when they don’t deserve it (I must admit I booed Cal Ripken Jr every chance I got, until he played his last game at the old stadium), and we really get all over them when we think they do deserve it.

    I often wonder how us fans would do in our daily jobs if we had an audience that booed us and kept yelling “YOU Suck!” at us?

    If they have a down turn so be it.

    How many teams have a run like the Yankees have had?

    You think if they had kept some they traded things would just keep rolling along.

    If it was that easy to build a team why haven’t more had the success the Yankees have.

  216. Doreen May 9th, 2013 at 5:43 pm

    the definition of success is part of the issue, though, I think.

    Yes, part of the problem is the Yankees themselves saying so, but the idea of World Series or bust is not a healthy one for fans. It is a great goal for a serious-minded team like the Yankees. but what it led to was a feeling that the year was wasted w/o that trophy. A great year like 2006 or 2007 totally negated because they didn’t win the WS. When did that happen? That feeling wasn’t there in 2002, or 2003. Consistently contending, consistently getting to the playoffs is a great thing. When you are one of the final 8 standing, then 6, and then maybe 4, or 2, wow! It’s a loooooong season. Your team has to be able to withstand the grind of the 162 games. And then in the playoffs you’re facing teams who have also withstood the grind of the 162 games, each one of them just as motivated to get the trophy. And sometimes luck or fate, or midges intervene. Sometimes you have players so bought into the WS or bust mentality that they try to be heroes, try to do more then they’re capable of.

  217. luis May 9th, 2013 at 5:45 pm

    Mick,

    Why answering a question that obviously involves explaining a certain position. Whether you agree with it or not have to expose a poster to public scorn?… Is this what a public forum is all about?… Do people have to stop voicing their positions to avoid being called names? or be subjeted to dismissive responses from people outside the direct conversation, just because they speak their minds?

    Or in my case, I dare to call out someone for his/hers dismissive responses ( in a very respectful way) and get ambushed as a result ? What happened with civility and respect to others?

    Do I have to tone down what I say to avoid the censor mobs?

  218. mick May 9th, 2013 at 5:45 pm

    This Yankee team is refreshing and as Yankee fans, for once, can’t be accused of buying anything.
    Next time you hear this from the rest of America you can smile and walk away.
    The team’s getting old and are overpaid and had morphed into an all or nothing outfit that was playing softball more than baseball.

    Now they move runners and hit to the situation.
    But instead of celebrating, we have to listen to other Yankee fans mantra about what is so wrong every day.

    repost:

    “Does Jorge Posada mean anything to you Trish?

    We won 4 titles with Posada. He was offense over defense. He wasn’t terrible but he wasn’t Yadier Molina”

    I always considered Posada a very good defender. And yes he was great offensively.

    However, I asked you not to change my hypothetical in your response. Jorge was far from a “so-so” defender.

    I asked whether you’d go with so-so offense or so-so defense at the position of catcher if the other trait was very good.

    There is obviously no right or wrong answer.

    I said I’d always take the defense – which I would.
    ///

    You have ” always considered Posada a very good defender ” ?

    Is this honest or accurate?

    I have a hockey team that’s hanging on for its dear playoff life tonight, so I can’t get into this now, but really, you realize anyone can go back and read archives, right?

    “You have ” always considered Posada a very good defender ” ?

    Is this honest or accurate?

    I have a hockey team that’s hanging on for its dear playoff life tonight, so I can’t get into this now, but really, you realize anyone can go back and read archives, right?”

    That statement was in response to this:

    “He was offense over defense. He wasn’t terrible but he wasn’t Yadier Molina”

    Pretty simple. I thought a lot more of Posada’s defense than “…he wasn’t terrible but he wasn’t Yadier Molina.”

    You’re right about the archives. I stand behind what I say. I loved Posada behind the dish until it appeared that he could no longer get runners out and his defense was slipping. Then I wanted him replaced. As I would with anyone whose defense behind the dish was starting to hurt the team.

    Again, the statement was purely in response to the statement made by the poster, in response to a question I had asked – not about Posada, about catching in general. I never considered Posada just an average catcher at the peak of his game, or over the course of his career. Once he really started slipping, well that was what it was.

    MaineYankee – I too think there’s every reason to feel hopeful and that there’s no guaranteed down period. It is debilitating to see that continually thrown out as if it’s a fait d’accompli.

    This team is doing so well, despite what some might have feared.

    Perhaps they will pinch hit if need be. Do managers automatically take players out of games and replace them just because a different pitcher takes the mound? I think not.

    ————————————————————————————————————–
    The game is being played in a NL Park. Where bench players are very valuable.
    Francisco can hit against a right or lefty and in the 5th inning, there is no need to remove him for the game for a lefty hitter.

    Warren has improved a lot in the past year.

    He seems to be throwing a little harder but more importantly, he has much better command and seems to be able to hit his spots with consistency.

    He may not be a rotation guy for the Yankees but can help them in the relief role.

    trisha I’m not buying your story.

    Anyone who went to such lengths to excoriate Posada the way you did – questioning his pitch framing, his game calling, his character, his loyalty to the team, his dedication to helping his pitcher, everything – and anyone who would have thrown him away in 2009 in favor of Francisco Cervelli, whom you were lobbying for replacing him – never “got” what caliber of player Posada was, on any level, so your attempt to work both sides of the street on that failed big time.

    I don’t care what you say, but I’m not letting that kind of hypocrisy go, when you were a one-woman mission in 2009 to have him replaced behind the plate.

    Dassit.

    ——————

    Things can really turn on a dime in those playoffs.. neither the Isles or the Pens have played great hockey, but whoever wins the series might tighten things up and turn their game around. The Rangers are certainly finding something these last two games and I’ve never liked the Caps chances in the playoffs ever, but right now it’s a 3 game series. Who knows at this point. The most I hope for as someone not invested in any of it is that the officials don’t ruin it… they always find a way to be awful.

    im actually kind of sad, i wish i could have had the sac and intelligence (bomb making abilities) to do what the Tsarnaev brothers did. but im happy because i get to enjoy the work of other people while not having to be dead or in prison. 2 sides of the coin.

    Hopefully Robertson’s not rusty today.

  341. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 9th, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    Shame – did you know that Prufrock is a multiple? Well he is. Left the forum as one person and came back as another. And all because he was upset that people were dumping on Posada – at least that’s what I think he said.

    Can you imagine someone feeling the need to lash out every which way but loose because one of his favorite players is criticized – or excoriated as he says? That’s plain whack.

    Like I could give a rat’s butt less what someone thinks of my view of any player.

    And then his buddy Mr. Civil begs for civility but likes to get his zingers in. Now that’s playing both sides of the street.

    ***********

    I would recommend that nobody question Prufrock or luis because you know, you wouldn’t want Dolores Umbrige to come down on you. And so much for civility, eh luis?

    ***********

    Shame, I didn’t mean to dump all of this on you, and obviously there’s nothing for you to respond to. I just used your reference to a multiple as a jumping off point.

    Now I’m out of here.

  342. MG May 9th, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    Shame, I only watch games that have one of my teams so haven’t seen any of the Isles-Pens but the Rangers-Caps series has been very good, I think the Rangers have a pretty good shot but obviously need a win on the road.

  354. joecembrale May 9th, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    This whole day has been a drag. Francesa during the rain delay was no bargain. Especially for someone my age who would to see Abbott and Costello ( already in progress). However there was a call from Met fan who asked if Harvey could be considered better than Seaver because Seaver didnt have his potential. Gotta love stupid Met fans.

  355. Russell Munson May 9th, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    YES needs to fix their pitch count for Robertson.

    ———————————
    In very small doses…

    You would think the Yankees could afford at least one professional play by play guy.

    Sterling is a joke (I wound up listening to about 3 innings of him and Suzyn last week while driving home from Orlando and didn’t even know there was a baseball game going on.

    Kay would be OK as a color guy and Singleton is OK on play by play but given the history of great New York play by play guys they would be far better off having someone really good in the booth.

  357. luis May 9th, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    Nasty hook

  358. Shame Spencer May 9th, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    I did know JAP had a handle and returned under a different handle but my impression was that he only used one at either juncture. I think, ultimately, both you, JAP and luis will come back around. Perhaps a break for everyone every now and then is a good thing.

    In the meantime, I’d also like to thank Chad for his quick work. Not a compliment I normally find myself dolling out.

  359. joecembrale May 9th, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    MG – I’m glad your series hasn’t been hampered. Honestly, I see the West taking the title again this year no matter who comes out of the east, but I wish you the best of luck (sorta..kinda..)!

    I haven’t watched a single minute of a game involving a team in the west but get regular updates from one of my best friends who has Sharks season tickets.

    Robertson is so much better when he’s using that curve.

  373. MG May 9th, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    the Yankees are 3 Mo outs away from taking this series, that would be pretty amazing considering how the state of the roster, the overall weakness against left handers and playing without a DH.

    They have 3 tough guys to face in KC but they are all righties, at least, and Hafner gets back in the lineup.

  374. Shame Spencer May 9th, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    Oppobay.

  375. joecembrale May 9th, 2013 at 7:46 pm

  377. Doreen May 9th, 2013 at 7:47 pm

  378. UnKnown May 9th, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    Sweet to take this series. Grinding out wins is the mantra this year, no doubt.

  379. Doreen May 9th, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    I knew Cano,hit a HR, so I guess the question is how did they score run #2????

    What is noooooooo shame??

  380. Jerkface May 9th, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    As Shame says, the problem with the radio is they are so stingy with information when that is the last thing radio needs. You have to wait for a pitching change to even get the name of the pitcher. Score is rarely spoken. The most you may get is the count and if the batter has already stepped to the plate good luck getting that unless Suzyn drops a proper noun in her stupid anecdote.

  381. hardwired7 May 9th, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    The lucky people at Coors Field get to see Mo one last time. Enjoy it.

    ———————-
    As for radio, this message is presented by Tony’s Pizza, Far Rockaway’s best since 2013, Sterling is getting kind of old but you know that at One Stop Oil, you are in and out before i give the score and can’t really see but you can see the game at Gecko’s Sports Grill, 24 big screen TVs and the radio tuned 24/7 to WCBS and the pitch….

  386. luis May 9th, 2013 at 7:52 pm

    Small ball run… Stewie sacrifice fly to center

  387. Doreen May 9th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    Oh, now. Remember!! Thanks everyone. Ben Francisco scored right?

  388. UnKnown May 9th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    Ma and Pa do a poor job on the radio. I usually listen to the other teams broadcast when I have to go that route.
    ———-

    I’m happy for the Yankee fans at Coors Field right now. Tough series to attend with all the rain and not much offensive explosiveness from the Bombers. BUT two wins and two saves from MO along with a super exciting game to watch last night is pretty cool.

    I who attend a ton of Yankee road games every year really associate with that kind of stuff. Nothing better then wearing your colors in a road stadium and coming up with a win. So satisfying.

  389. Shame Spencer May 9th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    Good radio guys realize that… I have no idea what planet John and Suzyn are on. I’m not sure they have a great perception of time in general. The key points you’re always taught to repeat are simple: score and situation. Context. Those two are just jabbering old people. And no offense old people, I love you’re stories!..just not if you’re doing my play by play.

  390. luis May 9th, 2013 at 7:55 pm

  397. MG May 9th, 2013 at 7:57 pm

    who could have predicted that the Rockies would score 5 runs in 3 games at a home series at Coors Field and win a game?

    You can’t predict baseball, Suzyn…

  398. UnKnown May 9th, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    I think what makes it really sad that MO is retiring, besides the fact that he is the GOAT and such a Yankee legend, is that he still performs at the highest level. The guy can still do what he does better than anyone else.

    Going to miss that next year. It would be one thing if he was trending downward, but that definitely is not the case.

  399. 4 NYY May 9th, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    Another MO down !!!

    you’re right, Doreen, fortunately I only hear them about once a year.

    I sat right in front of their broadcast booth for one of the spring training games and was tempted to ask them the score but decided discretion was the better part of valor lol

  403. Jerkface May 9th, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    who could have predicted that the Rockies would score 5 runs in 3 games at a home series at Coors Field and win a game?

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  415. read content August 10th, 2014 at 12:54 am

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    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.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
