Game 38: Yankees at Indians

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on May 13, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

YANKEES (23-14)
Brett Gardner CF
Jayson Nix 3B
Robinson Cano DH
Vernon Wells LF
Lyle Overbay 1B
Ben Francisco RF
Corban Joseph 2B
Alberto Gonzalez SS
Austin Romine C

LHP Vidal Nuno (0-0, 0.00)

INDIANS (21-15)
Drew Stubbs CF
Michael Brantley LF
Asdrubal Cabrera SS
Nick Swisher DH
Carlos Santana 1B
Mark Reynolds 3B
Ryan Raburn RF
Mike Aviles 2B
Yan Gomes C

RHP Trevor Bauer (1-1, 2.70)

TV: YES Network

UMPIRES: HP Gerry Davis, 1B Brian Knight, 2B Dan Iassogna, 3B Jerry Meals

PLAYER MOVE: The Yankees have activated RHP Brett Marshall and optioned OF Brennan Boesch to Triple-A. Just guessing, but that certainly seems to suggest that Curtis Granderson could be active tomorrow.

UPDATE, 3:28 p.m.: The Yankees have scored a run!

UPDATE, 3:57 p.m.: Nix has been an on-base machine lately. Crazy.

UPDATE, 4:13 p.m.: Nuno is through three without allowing a run. He finally allowed some runners in the third, but he got out of it with a popup. The guy can clearly pitch at this level, or at least looks like he deserves an opportunity. Problem is, the Yankees don’t have many openings that really fit him.

UPDATE, 4:58 p.m.: Here’s Warren in the sixth. Nuno’s first big league start: 5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 3 K. He threw 89 pitches, and I certainly didn’t expect him to throw more than that.

UPDATE, 5:04 p.m.: Corban Joseph’s first big league hit is a leadoff doubles in the seventh, but Gonzalez can’t get down the bunt and Joseph is still at second with one out for Romine.

UPDATE, 5:06 p.m.: Scranton in the house! Romine doubles in Joseph and it’s a 2-0 Yankees lead. That was Romine’s first hit of the year and the first big league extra-base hit of his career.

UPDATE, 5:26 p.m.: RBI single by Wells and a two-run double by Overbay. Suddenly the Yankees are up 6-0. This counts as a huge offensive game for them.

UPDATE, 5:31 p.m.: Up 7-0 after an Indians error, there’s a chance the Yankees can use Warren to finish this game. There’s a chance they’re going to get through 17 innings against the hardest hitting team in baseball by using Phelps, Claiborne, Nuno and Warren (plus Logan for one batter). That’s pretty insane.

UPDATE, 6:00 p.m.: Warren pitches around a two-out double and has given the Yankees three scoreless.

    Boesch down, Marshall up, Granderson back tomorrow, Adams up Wednesday.

    Busy week.

  2. jackamir May 13th, 2013 at 3:16 pm

    Gardner is a 5th OF..

  3. Niblick May 13th, 2013 at 3:16 pm

    Girardi must have made a mistake. Romine’s name is in the lineup.

  4. luis May 13th, 2013 at 3:16 pm

    Go Yankees

  5. ac1 May 13th, 2013 at 3:17 pm

    Nix has been on a roll…..

  6. astrocityfan May 13th, 2013 at 3:17 pm

    so for now i guess francisco is safe? Marshall goes back down for Grandy right? Who goes down when Adams is brought up? Do they DFA Nelson?

  7. Mike in Harrisburg May 13th, 2013 at 3:19 pm

    Disappointed Boesch went down instead of Francisco.

  8. yankeefeminista May 13th, 2013 at 3:20 pm

    Go AAA! Go Yanks!

    repost
    yankeefeminista May 13th, 2013 at 3:18 pm
    Phelps deserved better.

    I’d love to see a real doubleheader at NYS like in the good ole days. So much fun, and it beats being turned out of the park and then having to wait around outside for an hour or two before they let you come back into the Stadium.

    Turley will make his AAA debut for SWB tonight with Marshall up with the big club.

  9. Colorado Pinstripes May 13th, 2013 at 3:22 pm

    @mikeaxisa: Boesch to Triple-A = Granderson back tomorrow.

    Ben Fransisco must have pictures of Girardi in a dress

  11. Mike in Harrisburg May 13th, 2013 at 3:22 pm

    I enjoy day games and I enjoy doubleheaders. Wish there were more of both.

  12. joecembrale May 13th, 2013 at 3:23 pm

    Not to belabor the pint, but what does Gardiner think he is going to do with a high outside fastball?

  13. ac1 May 13th, 2013 at 3:23 pm

    ___

    Boesch had options.
    I hope that Francisco will go for Adams but something tells me Nelson is the one that will go.

    Gardner. Not Gardiner.

  15. luis May 13th, 2013 at 3:23 pm

    At least we scored!!

  16. joecembrale May 13th, 2013 at 3:24 pm

    Sure nice to see a ‘classic’ doubleheader. I guess the indains braintrust figured it was better to get a good crown by offering two for one tickets instead of playing to an empty house at noon on a monday. Maybe the yanks could offer $800 dollar moat seat at a special $1150 for doubleheaders. Think what a bargain that would be, we’d sell the place out.

  17. ac1 May 13th, 2013 at 3:24 pm

    A run is a run!

  18. luis May 13th, 2013 at 3:25 pm

    Francisco is big buddies with Mitre…. Maybe there is a connection? ;)

  19. yankeefeminista May 13th, 2013 at 3:26 pm

    Encinas has been DL’d. :(

    How’d we score?

  20. joecembrale May 13th, 2013 at 3:27 pm

    Yeah, how did we ever rid ourselves of Mitre?

  21. Bo knows May 13th, 2013 at 3:28 pm

    Wells ground out to SS, beat the DP ball.

  22. astrocityfan May 13th, 2013 at 3:28 pm

    Day games are great cause they give me something to do when im at work :)

  23. astrocityfan May 13th, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    Hope Nuno does well but im afraid the layoff hasnt set him up to succeed.

  24. luis May 13th, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    Fielder’s choice with men on first and third… Wells grounded to SS, failed to double him up on first… Run scores

  25. Colorado Pinstripes May 13th, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    Cojo flashing leather at two positions.

  26. yankeefeminista May 13th, 2013 at 3:31 pm

    Thanks, Bo, Luis.

  27. astrocityfan May 13th, 2013 at 3:31 pm

    How many pitches will they let Nuno throw? 80?

  28. Colorado Pinstripes May 13th, 2013 at 3:32 pm

    Good Job, Ben!

  29. luis May 13th, 2013 at 3:32 pm

    Uff!! He is a bad fielder too… What a weird route

  30. MG May 13th, 2013 at 3:32 pm

    You never know, Nuno could get lit up today but I like his demeanor on the mound.

    He gets the ball, gets ready and throws it.

    Not afraid to throw any of his pitches either.

  31. Chad Jennings May 13th, 2013 at 3:33 pm

    The decision to start Vidal Nuno surprised me, largely because I assumed it would be Adam Warren. But with the Boesch move, the Nuno start might make more sense.

    Just guessing here, but isn’t it possible that Nuno starts the second game, getting burned out for the next week, and the Yankees option him back to Triple-A to make room for Granderson? The Yankees wouldn’t have wanted to do that with Warren, so it makes sense to use Nuno this way.

    Nuno might deserve a spot, but he’s in such a minor role that he’s never getting a chance to pitch. Marshall can take that mopup job for a while, get his feet wet in the big leagues, and Nuno can go back to Triple-A to stay stretch out for another spot start in the future.

    On Wednesday, the Yankees can DFA either Francisco, Nelson or Gonzalez to make room for Adams. A few days after that, they can option either Marshall, Claiborne or Kelley to make room for Chamberlain.

  32. Hassey May 13th, 2013 at 3:34 pm

    Welssly back on the lineup card and the Yanks instantly become the best offense in baseball again

  33. luis May 13th, 2013 at 3:35 pm

    Nice k Nunieo!!

  34. Colorado Pinstripes May 13th, 2013 at 3:35 pm

    Good start, Nuno….like his demeanor, too.

  35. luis May 13th, 2013 at 3:36 pm

    Good post Chad

  36. MG May 13th, 2013 at 3:36 pm

    Chad, that makes sense, thanks.

    Have you heard anything from the Yankees about how they feel about Nelson?

    He seems much better defensively than advertised and his bat has some pop, it might just need some work

  37. Hassey May 13th, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    I think JACK Bauer could pitch a complete game for the Tribe today

  38. joecembrale May 13th, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    Makes perfect sense, Chad.

  39. luis May 13th, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    A swinging bunt!

  40. joecembrale May 13th, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    Jack Bauer might be the answer of what happened to Sergio Mitre.

  41. Hassey May 13th, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    The infield single tide has turned! How ya like them apples?

  42. Hassey May 13th, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    don;t laugh about Mitre – he may be back if we have any more Double HEaders this year

  43. Hassey May 13th, 2013 at 3:42 pm

    Swisher’s stupid smile is just begging for someone to blackout 2-3 teeth

  44. pkyankfan69 May 13th, 2013 at 3:42 pm

    Alberto Gonzalez now batting .333… Give that man the silver slugger!… That was a rocket at 3B, I hope Reynolds has life insurance.

  45. luis May 13th, 2013 at 3:43 pm

    I am not laughing… That makes a lot of sense Hassey… He still got the pictures ;)

  46. MG May 13th, 2013 at 3:44 pm

    this is a tired ballclub playing a daytime doubleheader-a win in the 2nd game would feel like a sweep…

  47. Chad Jennings May 13th, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    MG May 13th, 2013 at 3:36 pm e
    Chad, that makes sense, thanks.

    Have you heard anything from the Yankees about how they feel about Nelson?

    He seems much better defensively than advertised and his bat has some pop, it might just need some work

    I don’t have a good sense of that, and I would have to think the opinion might have changed in the past few days as Nelson’s finally done a few things offensively. If it were up to me, I’d certainly cut Francisco for Adams — especially knowing Nix can play the outfield if necessary. Makes more sense to start using that DH vs. LHP as a way to rest a guy like Cano (could certainly see some lineups vs. LHP that have Adams/Nelson at third, Nix/Nelson at second and Cano at DH).

  48. MG May 13th, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    Gonzales can pick it at SS, you can just see it by the way he made that play…

  49. Hassey May 13th, 2013 at 3:46 pm

    Yes, a win today would make this feel like the best road trip in team histroy

  50. MG May 13th, 2013 at 3:47 pm

    Thanks, Chad, Yankees fans aren’t always in agreement but I think there is 100% agreement on Francisco’s value (or lack of value) to the team :)

  51. MG May 13th, 2013 at 3:49 pm

    I like this kid, he has a future either with the Yankees or somewhere else…

  52. luis May 13th, 2013 at 3:49 pm

    I don’t know about you guys… But I am liking this Nuno kid… Lefty, good command ( paints the corners with all of his pitches )… A poor’s man version of Pettitte?

  53. SoS May 13th, 2013 at 3:49 pm

    Jack bauer is the only man I know that could play for 24 straight hours.

  54. joecembrale May 13th, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    I aw Nuno pitch in Tampa and its only two innings today, but I dont fell as if I am watching a rookie with hardly any mlb experience. I like his demeanor and the way he has an idea of what he wants todo and can execute the plan. Really like this kid.

  55. joecembrale May 13th, 2013 at 3:50 pm

  56. jackamir May 13th, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    Gardner is a 6th OF..

  57. willkamm May 13th, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    With Boesch down and Marshall up, does that leave Joseph as the odd man out after today? Francisco could still be gone when Granderson comes up correct. Boesch only had a .244 OBP didn’t he? Is that a great loss?

  58. kd May 13th, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    in the office, how does nuno look?

  59. Hassey May 13th, 2013 at 3:52 pm

    there’ll still always be a spot on my roster for Gardner, but I am surprised that he is not a better hitter for average

  60. luis May 13th, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    Very good kd… FB sitting 89-90 but with great command… Excellent CB wit good command as well

  61. 4 NYY May 13th, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    I’ve liked him since ST and after seeing what he’s done at AAA, was so glad they called him up. Was of the opinion that he should have started before now though.

  62. MG May 13th, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    Robbie is going yard sometime in this game…

  63. kd May 13th, 2013 at 3:55 pm

    gracias luis

    how’s it going?

    it’s early to say, but this team is looking like something good is going on

  64. luis May 13th, 2013 at 3:55 pm

    willkamm,

    Joseph is the 26th roster spot allowed for DH… He is going down after today

    Do I hear 7 ?

  66. jackamir May 13th, 2013 at 3:56 pm

    Lets see Nuno from the stretch before you anoint him as a comp for Andy Pettitte with 249 wins

  67. luis May 13th, 2013 at 3:56 pm

    Kd,

    I am fine… They are scrappy and have lot’s of fight in them… I like them too

  68. Hassey May 13th, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    this kid can’t even break my front window – please remind me why his ERA is only 2+

  69. luis May 13th, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    A” poor’s man version of Pettitte” is hardly a comparison to him… Yet, he has some traits of him ( the good command of his pitches ) that alone says alot about the kid

  70. Nick in SF May 13th, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    Dammit Chloe I thought I told you to establish a perimeter and send the schematics to my PDA.

  71. MG May 13th, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    Nuno doesn’t really compare to Andy in any way.

    A reasonable comparison (in terms of style only) might be Jimmy Key or Tommy John, a lefty who throws strikes and effectively changes speeds.

  72. joecembrale May 13th, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    I’ve grown way too tired of seeing guys like Nova and Hughes who get into spots and look like they just want to hol on to the ball forever. I always thought I’d want a staff of pitchers with a “here’s my pitch, I dare you to hit it” attitude. Guys like David Wells and , of course, Mariano. Nuno looks like a pitcher with a plan who’s not afraid to get the ball into the batter and let him try to to beat him.

  75. Hassey May 13th, 2013 at 4:04 pm

  108. Captain Clutch May 13th, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    Bauer really has nothing. This AAA lineup is letting him get away with so many hit able pitches.

  109. Colorado Pinstripes May 13th, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    At least Bauer is up to 81 pitches after 4 innings.

  110. Hassey May 13th, 2013 at 4:24 pm

  123. jackamir May 13th, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    Nuno is the next Whitey Ford.

    Nuno reminds me of Steve Carlton, he’s lefthanded and gets outs.
    ————————-
    No, no… Much more like Guidry… left handed, gets outs, and pitches for the Yankees.
    ____________________________________________________________________________
    I would say Warren Spahn – the only differences are the 363 wins, CY Young Award, screwball, and the Purple Heart, Bronze Star, and Battlefield Commission during WWII.

  125. Hassey May 13th, 2013 at 4:33 pm

    he gets his number retired the second he gets sent back down to AA

  126. MG May 13th, 2013 at 4:33 pm

    if that’s it for Nuno (Warren warming in bullpen) he did a great job today.

    Let him go back to AAA and start in rotation for the rest of the season, if the Yankees need a spot starter they can bring him back up.

  127. Niblick May 13th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    Don’t worry. Blunder Joe will decide he’s reached his pitch count after 4 2/3 innings.

  128. joecembrale May 13th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    Bottom line: nuno did a real good job today.

  129. Nick in SF May 13th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    The pitcher Nuno reminds me of the most is Babe Ruth, so we really need to see him bat too.

  130. jackamir May 13th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    Romine reminds me of Jake Gibbs.

  131. Hassey May 13th, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    Hey Conie, why don’ chu have a dance?

  132. pkyankfan69 May 13th, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    Nuno’s stuff reminds me of Randy Johnsons but with the command of Greg Maddux.

  133. jackamir May 13th, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    Gardner is a 7th OF!!!

  134. Niblick May 13th, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    Alberto Gonzalez reminds me of Mario Mendoza – just a bit younger, though.

  135. Hassey May 13th, 2013 at 4:37 pm

  138. Hassey May 13th, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    the problem is that all these bemnch guys that we all love when they play their role are getting so exposed that we’re starting to hate them…and by we I mean me

  139. Captain Clutch May 13th, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    This looks like a dead team that isn’t interested in being in Cleveland today. Can’t blame them.

    We give them a 1-0 for their 1-0?

  142. Niblick May 13th, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    Robbie’s a #3 2B, at best.

  143. ac1 May 13th, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    Cano may have made it to first if he was paying attention…

  144. joecembrale May 13th, 2013 at 4:41 pm

    What to do when strike three gets away from the catcher: swing, miss, pose, turn wobble down line to avoid being thrown out on a close play at first, which would make you not look cool.

  145. ac1 May 13th, 2013 at 4:45 pm

    Nuno’s motion and pitches reminds me of Cliff Lee.

  146. Colorado Pinstripes May 13th, 2013 at 4:45 pm

    Gomes looks like Bryce Harper.

  147. Captain Clutch May 13th, 2013 at 4:47 pm

    It’s time to pull Nuno

  148. joecembrale May 13th, 2013 at 4:50 pm

  150. GregD May 13th, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    Nuno looks like a veteran who belongs in the rotation

  151. ac1 May 13th, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    Played with fire but WOOOOOOO Nuno!
    Rotation spot in his future? (2014?)

  152. Colorado Pinstripes May 13th, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    El Nuno!

  153. Niblick May 13th, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    Captain Clutch – you’d make a good tee ball manager.

  154. jackamir May 13th, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    NUNO is the Man!!! Very good outing, I’m Impressed with his poise…

  155. Tackelberry May 13th, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    Great job by Nuno! Would guess Warren would come in next inning as he is over 90 pitches now.

  156. Niblick May 13th, 2013 at 4:54 pm

    89 < 90.

  157. MG May 13th, 2013 at 4:54 pm

    that was a great pitch to Cabrera, most rookies can’t spot a pitch on (or off) the black in that situation…

  158. ET May 13th, 2013 at 4:54 pm

    Nuno might be a hidden gem. Crafty lefties who know how to pitch are valuable

  159. Colorado Pinstripes May 13th, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    When will Nuno’s Yankeeography be released?

  160. Captain Clutch May 13th, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    Yankee’s are swinging like the jet is fired up and ready to leave

  161. Captain Clutch May 13th, 2013 at 4:59 pm

    Too bad Nuno isn’t stretched out. He probably could have given them another 2 or 3 innings.

  162. Niblick May 13th, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    CC – 5 minutes ago you wanted him pulled in the fifth. You’re nuts.

  163. jackamir May 13th, 2013 at 5:03 pm

    Warren has the looks of another Tom Seaver. Warren’s wife looks like Nancy Seaver…

    Why would Tito leave a lefty in to face Wells with 2nd and 3rd in a 2 run game?

    Unless he told him to BB Wells and go after Overbay that is some awful managing.

    Captain clutch is an idiot. Only shows up after a yankees loss to complain about Cashman or Girardi. He likes complaining on principle. There’s a reason why Girardi is the manager and “captain clutch” is stuck on a message board crying about the manager.

  203. Bo knows May 13th, 2013 at 5:31 pm

    Cano really upset me with that at bat. He refused to go with the pitch. Looking for the hero, got some Swish disease. A three run lead was important at that time.

  204. Colorado Pinstripes May 13th, 2013 at 5:33 pm

    If the under-manned Yankees can win this game, earn a dh split, and complete a 6-2 road trip, with youth contibuting and gaining confidence, resting DROB and MO, and no injuries, etc…….Happy Day in Yankee-Land.

    How do they even put him in the lineup ? He doens’t hit for the first month or more anyway !

    Overbay has been hitting the ball more since that adjustment he made.

  206. G. Love May 13th, 2013 at 5:38 pm

    This is a statement road trip if they hold on to win this one. Seriously. They should’ve fallen apart especially playing with Nunez on the roster when he should’ve been DL’d.

    Last week I heard my boy Gammons & Francesa drooling how the bubble would burst on this roadtrip – that they couldn’t keep this up.

    Now they’re close to having a 6-2 trip and returning home to get Grandy in a trade for Francisco probably and Adams.

    Enjoy this. I think this group is going to keep it up until/if Tex and Arod push their way back on the roster.

    Grandy cannot take away Wells at bats though.

  207. njsketch May 13th, 2013 at 5:39 pm

    Tex will get the full 30 days of rehab games.
    They will keep him down there as long as they can.
    Usually takes him that long to get rollin anyway.

  212. Captain Clutch May 13th, 2013 at 5:41 pm

    5 minutes ago you wanted him pulled in the fifth. You’re nuts.
    —————

    He hasn’t pitched a lot recently and hasn’t started a game in weeks . Girardi said he was on a 80 pitch limit. Yeah i am nuts…know what you are talking about.

  213. bruceb May 13th, 2013 at 5:42 pm

    Last week I heard my boy Gammons & Francesa drooling how the bubble would burst on this roadtrip – that they couldn’t keep this up.

    Who could argue with them? Just as well this game is not played on paper. That’s the magic of wearing pinstripes. Some are baseball players reborn.

  214. comnsnse May 13th, 2013 at 5:43 pm

    With respect to the comment about Boesch vs Francisco going down.

    Boesch is still a young player and under Yankee control.

    He might still have a future if someone can get him to shorten his swing.

    Francisco is a stiff and will be cut as soon as injured players return!

    Cano needs the batting coach to show him some video and “instruct” him that he is not superman and must start actually swinging at strikes.

    His offense this year has been a game to game guess!

  215. Warning Track Power May 13th, 2013 at 5:43 pm

  223. G. Love May 13th, 2013 at 5:49 pm

    We just need to get Cano away from Swisher and back in the Bronx. Swisher’s “grip it and rip bro-itis” is highly contagious and can paralyzes the brain of great hitters.

  224. jackamir May 13th, 2013 at 5:49 pm

    Angel Hernandez is about as bad as it gets.

  226. comnsnse May 13th, 2013 at 5:51 pm

    Peter Gammons is a known Sox homer and very much anti Yankee.

    He has garnered the sympathy of some due to his stroke but his writing is slanted and stale, and I do not believe enjoys much credibility as a writer or prognosticator.

    Regardless of the general level of fawning on ESPN.

    Nothing more could be said about “Chicken” Francesa.

    He’s a self promoting buffoon who has become a millionaire being a….fan, no pun intended!

  227. G. Love May 13th, 2013 at 5:52 pm

    joecembrale,

    With the way Girardi matches up, I doubt they’ll take a pitcher from him.

    Since Hafner can’t field, they will be forced to trade/DFA Overbay when Tex announced he’s ready.

    If I were GM, and I’m not, I would tell Tex to get an IF’ers glove and reacquaint himself with 3b to help the team keep Overbay on the roster.

    I’m not kidding. There is no reason why a man who played 3b in the majors can’t go back there to give his team flexibility other than tremendous ego.

  228. Joe from Long Island May 13th, 2013 at 5:53 pm

    G.Love – I got home early (dentist appt this pm), and thought I’d check to see if comments were any better – thought if say say to you.

    They have to keep wells in the lineup, with needed days at dh and off, of course. Ichiro and Gardner most likely to lose some abs with grandy, I think.

    Chad is right, it is insane to play a dh against Cleveland using only phelps, Claiborne, niño, warren. It speaks well of recent player development in the organization.

    Have a good evening.

    I want to go on record as Girardi did a classy thing. Nuno was running out of gas, bottom of the fifth, men on 1st and 3rd. Let him finish the inning to go for the win. Well done.

  232. hardwired7 May 13th, 2013 at 5:57 pm

  234. jlyanks85 May 13th, 2013 at 5:59 pm

    Why is everybody in here getting on tex so much? He isn’t coming back until June at the earliest, and that’s if there is no setback. If he was healthy, he would be a big boost to the lineup. This teams needs all the offense it can get right now.

  235. G. Love May 13th, 2013 at 5:59 pm

    Joe From LI,

    Good to see you on here. I agree, that Ichiro and Gardner are going to lose at bats. I just don’t think you can remove Wells and put him on the bench. Girardi will come up with a rotation and I’m not as concerned about it as those 4 make a strong rotation in my opinion.

    It’s when we have to deduct guys form this current group helping us win to get the DL contingent back on the roster things get dicey for me.

    As for the system producing answers, it definitely is.

    I can remember not too long ago when we’d bring up a reliever or a spot starter and they’d get killed. These guys seem more prepared.

    I keep thinking back to when Cashman had to go grab that AAA starter out of the Philly system to make a spot start for us because they had no one ready to come up or they wanted to bring up.

    If Nuno gave up the lead, Girardi would have been lambasted.

  241. G. Love May 13th, 2013 at 6:03 pm

    jlyanks85,

    Look at Tex’s stats the past few years against RHP for why a lot of us are down on him. He’s not a major league regular 1b against RHP and we play RHP far more than LHP.

    He only goes to the plate looking to HR and when we have guys on base who could be knocked in with a sac or a base hit, he’s smashing it into the shift.

    If he HR’s 30 times, that’s spiffy. But if in the other at bats he does nothing, which is what’s happening with him against RHP, he’s a major liability Girardi feels obligated to bat in the middle of the lineup.

    A Tex/Overbay L/R platoon would probably be one of the best 1b in the league but it won’t happen due to roster space, $$$$ and ego.

    Why is everybody in here getting on tex so much? He isn’t coming back until June at the earliest, and that’s if there is no setback. If he was healthy, he would be a big boost to the lineup. This teams needs all the offense it can get right now.

    +1……..also great defensively….and Overbay has also exceeded reasonable expectations.

    Hi Dr. Joe! Hope you and Mrs. Dr. joe are enjoying life!

    Also, watching tex grounding out to right field or popping a ball straight up in the air from the left side and then getting a close of his astounded expression as he walks back to the dugout.

    Overbay still hitting it hard.

  246. jlyanks85 May 13th, 2013 at 6:05 pm

    I agree he’s declined on the left side, which is why he should strictly become just a right handed hitter. Some people here though are making him out to be a bum.

    Didn’t he play 3b in the minors when he was a rookie? I remember reading he did.

  247. Patrick May 13th, 2013 at 6:05 pm

    If the Yankees win that’s a 6-2 road trip. Pretty darn good.

  248. G. Love May 13th, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    Tex played 3b in the majors for the Rangers.

    When we needed help there, reporters asked him a couple of years ago if he could play there and he laughed it off like it was insane.

    Meanwhile Youkilis will play any position that gets him into the lineup.

  249. NYYanksFan May 13th, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    “There is no reason why a man who played 3b in the majors can’t go back there to give his team flexibility other than tremendous ego.”

    That he only played 14 total games there as a major leaguer and it’s been 10 years since he last played the position might be another reason.

    Adam Warren is a stud!!!

    jackamir, I just got here a few minutes ago so haven’t seen many of the posts but I do believe that Bo Knows I extremely fair when it comes to Girardi. I don’t think I remember ever seeing him trashing him. If there are more comments about him, great to see.

    **********

    I was absolutely and unequivocally wrong about Hiroki Kuroda. I could not have been more mistaken – though I do feel the need to remind that my trepidation had to do with transitioning to the AL East from the NL West, not with Kuroda’s pitching per se.

    I was absolutely and unequivocally spot on about Vernon Wells and the rest of the Band-Aid brigade – at this point anyway. If this were pin the tail on the donkey, I would have won first prize.

    No, people spend lots of posts emphasizing how a manager has nothing to do with team performance. So this was one example of how a manager has his players backs. It wasn’t easy, he and Rothschild were pacing but they hung in with the kid and were rewarded.

  253. Doreen May 13th, 2013 at 6:09 pm

    Things have a way of sorting themselves out. Also, it is early in the season.

    Not like when Sheffield forced his way back like a week before the playoffs.

    At least we don’t miss Swisher.

    “No, people spend lots of posts emphasizing how a manager has nothing to do with team performance.”:

    I’ve never bought this, by the way.

    ———————————————————————————————-
    Never could have imagined how much offensive production Overbay was going to provide.
    Yankees need this because Tex is not returning this month.
    Overbay has done a great job and certainly earned the right to have his name in the line-up every single day.

  256. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 13th, 2013 at 6:12 pm

    Very nice job by Romine. Doesn’t look like he’s been terribly hurt by sitting. Au contraire.

  257. Bo knows May 13th, 2013 at 6:12 pm

    Yay Nuno, yay Warren. Shut down a team that was 12 out of 14.

    Yankee starting pitching development program is alive and well. Very gruntled.

  258. Doreen May 13th, 2013 at 6:14 pm

    Not for nothin, but Jeter never considers moving off SS. and I know I read it here that he isn’t even good at SS anymore. I even read that it was selfish of Jeter not to move from SS when ARod joined the team.

    Maybe Tex was abysmal at 3b. Maybe if the situation actually arose and it was an emergency he would do it for an inning.

  259. Colorado Pinstripes May 13th, 2013 at 6:20 pm

    Hate to lose the first game 1-0 on a HR by a .225 hitter, but all-in-all a super day for the Yankees: Nuno, Phelpsie, Warren, Claiborne, Romine, CoJo, Nix, etc….plus DROB and MO rested, no injuries, etc.
