    “Don’t the Braves have 1 or 2 ss prospcts blocked by Simmons? Maybe the NYY could work a trade for one with their excess RP.”

    well they traded Ahmed in the Upton deal…..however they have Peraza who some think has a higher upside than even Simmons…..I doubt they’d trade him though.

  2. blake May 22nd, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    Grandy leading off? Guess maybe Joe thinks he’ll get some fastballs in front of Cano…..

  3. Bo knows May 22nd, 2013 at 3:42 pm

    I’d tell Grandy to not swing on a low and outside pitch. If they strike you out so be it. At the least spoil it.

  4. Tyler May 22nd, 2013 at 3:42 pm

    Yeah I think Girardi might be trying to get him going and just get him more Ab’s… which he probably should be having in the minors. He’s definitely chasing some bad pitches up there.

    I think the logic is simply there are no other leadoff hitters in the lineup except Ichiro who is also struggling. (When Gardner sits)

  6. UnKnown May 22nd, 2013 at 3:48 pm

    Soriano should go back to not talking to the media after poor performances. Just like he did in New York. He is a baby.

  7. NYYROC May 22nd, 2013 at 3:48 pm

    Blake, what about Pastornicky??

  8. Sir Alex Ferguson Forever May 22nd, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    Brignac is in again. Oh joy. Girardi’s got a below average replacement player playing twice in three days.

    I see Chad confirmed on the live chat that I am Brian Cashman. LMAO!

    Chad, you really shouldnt joke about me. Im no laughing matter. Especially in these parts.

  9. blake May 22nd, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    Nunez might be better than Pastornicky …

  10. Warning Track Power May 22nd, 2013 at 3:52 pm

    Adams again. The kid just looks like he belongs in the big leagues. Good for him.
    Nice to see Romine getting some extended play. I know his bat is not putting fear into the opposing pitcher’s, but that will come soon enough.
    After all, nobody said Romine was going to be a .300 hitter.

  11. Sir Alex Ferguson Forever May 22nd, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    Nobody cares if he’s a .300 hitter. It would be nice if developed into a .355 OBP at the least. Maybe an .800 ops.

  12. Rich in NJ May 22nd, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    Until and unless Ich hits RH pitching (.198 .260 .292 .551), there really is no optimal OF rotation if he is to be a part of it, unless they only play him v. LHP (.333 .326 .422 .748 ).

  13. Sir Alex Ferguson Forever May 22nd, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    it’s been a peaceful last couple blog posts.. without having to read shame spencer’s constant stupidity.

    I can’t believe Pat was trying to double down on his bet that Ichi would hit .300 this year, smh. Good luck Pat!

    Ys – I like the narrative as well, but just look at the production and it’s pretty obvious that Boston’s ‘cast offs’ are not the problem in LA.

  15. Sir Alex Ferguson Forever May 22nd, 2013 at 3:55 pm

  17. Tyler May 22nd, 2013 at 3:56 pm

    ac1-

    That’s probably true too even though I don’t really think Grandy is much of a leadoff hitter anymore either. Probably the best option though right now with no Gardner.

  18. Shame Spencer May 22nd, 2013 at 3:57 pm

    Rich – I sure as hell hope so.. I was going to take him up on the bet, but I just felt bad about it.

    Hey Shame, WTP, Tyler: Good to see you all here today.

  21. Rich in NJ May 22nd, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    Shame

    I think it’s hard sometimes for people to get their minds around an aging player’s decline.

    (My own disclaimer: If that turns out to spawn some reverse mojo, all the better)

  22. Shame Spencer May 22nd, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    What up, comet? How’ve you been?

  23. comet May 22nd, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    Hey Rich and AAO. Agree about the block option.

  24. Rich in NJ May 22nd, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    Hey comet

    What option?

  25. comet May 22nd, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    I’ve been well Shame, although more than a little concerned about the play of my Black Hawks. If they go so do my chances in the playoff pool. And how about you?

  26. bruceb May 22nd, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    Our lineup is finding it hard enough to score runs without the absence of a genuine leadoff hitter. Surely the idea is to get someone on base for Cano? Granderson is either going to strike out or hit a home run, most probably the former as he should be having another 30-40 at bats in the Minors.

  27. Warning Track Power May 22nd, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    Comet
    What have I done to earn that greeting?

  28. comet May 22nd, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    The fact that this board needs a block option.

  29. comet May 22nd, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    You seem like the friendly sort WTP and I enjoy your observations.

  30. Rich in NJ May 22nd, 2013 at 4:05 pm

    Oh, like “ignore,” or maybe “troll repellent”? :D

  31. GregD May 22nd, 2013 at 4:05 pm

    I hope we hit some tonight….we always seem to bring out the best in Baltimore’s pitching ……..

  32. Tyler May 22nd, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    Hey Comet!

    I’m having trouble accepting Ichiro’s decline also… tough to watch. Although he was at .282, what 2 weeks ago?

  33. Zach S May 22nd, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    I sorta want Ichiro now batting in the 9 hole and Romine 8th. Wished they would have done that last year with Gardy in the 9 spot, but now Ichrio fits the bill with Gardy leading off. I like having a capable hitter batting 9th when the lineup turns over.

  34. Warning Track Power May 22nd, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    Comet
    Well thank you. Sorry to seem reserved, but I felt like your post was a set up.
    Ya know, I watch a lot of Mob movies.
    HAHAHA!!!

    Gardner deserves a day off.
    Grandy leading off is fine with me. With Cano behind him, hopefully Grandy can get his bat hot with all the fastballs he will be seeing.
    I’m not concerned about Grandy. IMO, these games are still his “spring training”. I look for him to eventually get hot when the calendar turns to June.

  39. Shame Spencer May 22nd, 2013 at 4:13 pm

    comet – Doing well. Don’t feed, he looks even more sad and lonely when no one pays him any mind. I’m very excited about the Yankees as I have no NHL team in the race… I’d love to be excited about the Cowboys but I’m afraid there’s no reason for optimism there either, as usual! :D

  40. Shame Spencer May 22nd, 2013 at 4:14 pm

    I agree Gardner might deserve a day off, but he’d get one tomorrow… he’s been really hot the last 5 games. I’d sit Ichi, but I’m not in charge… sadly. :(

  41. bruceb May 22nd, 2013 at 4:14 pm

    He’s getting one tomorrow.

    Blake-Thanks for the post. I hope Andrew has made a mistake.
    C.C. is getting another extra day of rest. I don’t care for that idea. I would much rather see C.C.
    pitch on Sat, on his reg. rest and maybe push Nuno back or skip Nuno entirely.

  46. Ys Guy May 22nd, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    mets lose again, this time with harvey starting. 10 games under .500 and 10 gb before labor day is really ugly.

    they will fire collins and bring up backman, that will bring in tens of fans, then they will promote wheeler and tens more will come for a few days and that’s the met’s season.

    mets management made no attempt to field a major league team this year and their fans should and are penalizing them for it.

  47. blake May 22nd, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    eh I don’t think giving CC an extra day is the worst thing…..

  48. Ys Guy May 22nd, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    before memorial day not labor day.

    10 gb at labor day is a GOOD year for the metsies!

  50. Doreen May 22nd, 2013 at 4:27 pm

    CC has thrown so many pitches (in his career); Girardi has said he was going to try and do things like this this year.

  51. blake May 22nd, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    Bret mentioned this name a few days ago (I know I know)…..but Peraza would be a great target for the Yankees if they’d trade him. He’s a long ways away (still in A ball) but he’s got a lot of potential according to a lot of reports……maybe if the Bravos get desperate enough for bullpen help then Cashman should pick up the phone.

  52. Rich in NJ May 22nd, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    The Mets have a $93m payroll, of which $25+m is Santana’s dead money. It’s tough to win that way if you aren’t the Rays.

    ————————————————————————————————————–
    Doreen
    Good point.
    I think since C.C. has thrown so many pitches in his career to date, the odds of him touching
    94 or 95 mph again are slim to none.
    All this talk about how his arm will throw harder once the weather warms up seems foolish.
    It was very warm Monday night in Baltimore nobody saw him throw any harder.

  54. bruceb May 22nd, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    The Mets will no doubt carry their losing streak into the Subway Series, whereupon Ike Davis will hit half a dozen bombs and Matt Harvey will pitch a perfect game.

    I simply hate playing teams on long losing streaks as the law of averages always comes into play. I was thinking that when we went to extra innings last night. The Os had lost six in a row.

    How much longer can the Wilponzis and Sandy Alderson get away with telling the fans: “Be patient. We’re rebuilding.”

    Lol! They do always tend to show up against us but we’ve dominated the Mets pretty good… I wouldn’t be satisfied with a split of that series. We should win.

  57. Mordot11 May 22nd, 2013 at 4:48 pm

    A win tonight gets a series win against a good AL East team. Really enjoyed the Yanks so far this year. Let’s get it!

  58. hardwired7 May 22nd, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    92-93 from CC with his release point s/b more than sufficient. It’s really about where he places it.

    The same concept applies to Pineda. These guys are so huge that the ball is on the hitter that tick or two quicker than from the average pitcher. It certainly helped CC’s cause immensely to sit @95 or over, but he can make still make a few mph less work.

    He just needs to be sharper with his command. He’ll get there.

  59. Against All Odds May 22nd, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    Smh disgusting

  60. bruceb May 22nd, 2013 at 5:07 pm

    I agree, Shame, we should be able to win 3 out of 4 against the Mutts but I take nothing for granted with our lineup. We simply don’t have the depth to blow teams away early so nearly every game goes to right to the wire. A win tonight would be nice because it seems as though we haven’t won a series at the Trop since OJ was acquitted.

    Good afternoon guys,

    I have been pretty busy… But I just read Mattingly’s comments…. He is right on the money, maybe it is his job to make sure that the team works as an unit… But talent without grit goes nowhere.

    I don’t like Gardner on the bench tonight… he has a day off tomorrow

  64. MTU May 22nd, 2013 at 5:09 pm

    edit : If Stewart were healthy

  65. MG May 22nd, 2013 at 5:09 pm

    I am thinking about going to one of the games at the Trop this weekend but am hesitating because the Yankees have lost every time I’ve been to a game there in the past two years.

    Is it because (1) I am a jinx or (2) they lose every game at the Trop

    Inquiring minds want to know…

  66. MTU May 22nd, 2013 at 5:11 pm

  67. hardwired7 May 22nd, 2013 at 5:12 pm

    I think it’s because the Trop is a glorified circus tent. It’s not real baseball.

  68. Nick in SF May 22nd, 2013 at 5:13 pm

    Gardner has a .000 OPS vs. Hammels, and that dates back to the dawn of time itself.

    I know what you mean and I totally agree. A 100% healthy Stewart would mean Romine would not be playing this many games in a row.
    But luck is when preparation meets opportunity. You know what I mean?
    Romine is supposed to be the #1 ranked catching prospect in the organization that is ready to play in the majors. This “look” could be a blessing in disguise for the team and Romine.
    Stranger things have happened

  71. I Am Winning May 22nd, 2013 at 5:13 pm

    “I think the logic is simply there are no other leadoff hitters in the lineup except Ichiro who is also struggling. (When Gardner sits)”

    I would say that’s exactly the logic.

    ——————
    If Nunez were back and hitting better, he could, and would likely, be the option for the lead-off spot, while moving Gardner to 9th. It’s just unfortunate that our 3 lead-off hitter candidates are either injured or presently ineffective. I want Gardner out of that leadoff spot, and hitting 9th, but he is our best option.

    Granderson is preferred as the 2 hole hitter, but if he has a good game in the leadoff spot today I would assume he’ll be there again for the next few games, at least.

  72. MTU May 22nd, 2013 at 5:14 pm

    “If Nunez were back and hitting better, he could, and would likely, be the option for the lead-off spot, while moving Gardner to 9th. ”

    Nunez has never had an OBP that approaches Gardner’s for any extended period. His highest season OBP (.330) is less than Gardner’s career OBP (.352)

    Loria and his son-in-law David Samsone (president of the Marlins) perpetrated one of the biggest hoaxes in sports history getting Miami-Dade to fund that stadium.

    They lost a significant portion of their Broward-Palm Beach County fans and had no intention of having a competitive ballclub.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they are tanking in order to get a waiver from the local government so they can sell the team and walk away with hundreds of millions of dollars.

    I love being in FL during the spring.. spring training baseball is the best part of the year. I’ll never forget the time I had a conversation with Giambi at a stop light in a hummer limo, he wouldn’t tell me who was in there with him, but I know at least 4 other players were.

    “Nunez has never had an OBP that approaches Gardner’s for any extended period. His highest season OBP (.330) is less than Gardner’s career OBP (.352)”

    That’s why I added the little stipend of “if he was doing somewhat better.” Gardner isn’t having a terrible season overall, its just his singles. If he were hitting .040 points higher, his OBP and SLG would be pretty good for a leadoff guy and nobody would be discussing trying to fill someone else in the leadoff spot. But his current .328 OBP just isn’t doing it for me.

    There are so many true baseball fans in FL, it really is a shame what is going on. I was living in Miami when the Marlins won their first WS it was explosive and how many times from Wayne Hizenga to Loria can you watch ownership destroy a time and still be a fan ??? Especially such a young club.

    Blake-
    Not sure how you feel, but I think the terrible comments made by Sergio should be
    very newsworthy because Fuzzy Zoeller made similar comments in the late 90′s
    and Sergio has proved that progress has not been made in the golf community

    @MadDogUnleashed: Callers are fine folks. Just saying twitter is an easy thing to hide behind. Call and talk to me, be a man. Don’t hide. You know I’m right.

    I think another deserving City outside of Fla. deserves a shot.

    Sorry.

    What’s worse is that’s although insensitive and wrong….Fuzzys comment didn’t have the intent behind I that Sergio’s did….Sergio was born in 1980…..he knows what he was saying was offensive or should

    Sergio completely said the wrong thing and is going to probably pay a big penalty in lost endorsements over the next year or so but Tiger isn’t exactly the nicest person on the planet…

    “In front of more than 300 guests, Garcia was jokingly asked on stage by the compere whether he and his countrynman would be inviting Woods over for dinner. “Yeah, we will have him around every night,” Garcia replied. “We will serve fried chicken.””

    Yo tenerlo para la cena todas las noches y servir pollo frito

    Haré que lo cena cada noche y sirven pollo frito

    le tendré para la comida cada noche y serviré el pollo freído

    I don’t have a clue what any of these reallly mean but they are supposed to be translations of what Sergio said

  111. Rich in NJ May 22nd, 2013 at 5:52 pm

    Russo’s career has been built on saying stupid stuff to incite interest, and sadly, it’s been successful.

  112. luis May 22nd, 2013 at 5:52 pm

    MG,

    Those comments are inherently racist… Sergio is an idiot

    I don’t disagree with either comment but it doesn’t make Tiger a saint after all the crap he’s pulled…

  114. luis May 22nd, 2013 at 5:55 pm

    As unlikeable Tiger might be…. He shouldn’t be the object of those kind of comments… I always root against him by the way…

  115. Rich in NJ May 22nd, 2013 at 5:56 pm

    Except Tiger’s issues are separate and distinct. There’s a way to attack him and a way to act like a racist jerk that obscures everything else.

    Romine has hit better than his avg. I like what I’m seeing. Goes with the pitch to right. Turns on the inside pitch.

  120. blake May 22nd, 2013 at 6:01 pm

    Tiger probably gets enough satisfaction watching Sergio choke in very tournament he has a chance to win
