    I almost feel bad Granderson wasted about $10 on Hangover III yesterday. I hope his box of popcorn made up for the terrible film.

  2. 86w183 May 24th, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    Box of popcorn? That’s. Another $ 10 isn’t it ?

  3. CountryClub May 24th, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    It’s way too early to say Romine cannot hit. As a matter of fact, he’s had some bad luck. He’s hit plenty of balls hard that have found gloves.

  4. tomingeorgia May 24th, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    Memorial Day Weekend. Is the Garden State Parkway backed up to the Union tolls yet?

    Buy a poppy.

  5. saucY May 24th, 2013 at 1:00 pm

    sweep

  6. dan l May 24th, 2013 at 1:07 pm

    Romine is not a great defensive catcher…hit sits high in his setup…positions his glove poorly when he presents a target for his pitcher…frankly I hope they trade him. Cervelli will be the primary catcher for the next few years…the pitchers like throwing to him.

  7. austinmac May 24th, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    They need to win tonight. Moore and Cobb are very tough.

  8. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 1:14 pm

    Speaking of movies, I liked “The Great Gatsby.” It’s not like the book, but still kind of enjoyable.

    We need 2 out of 3. Well, not need, but…

  9. blake May 24th, 2013 at 1:22 pm

    @BerniePleskoff. Thanks. RT @BryanHoch: Bat is Yankees rookie Adams’ best tool http://t.co/PCS6axqnhG

  10. blake May 24th, 2013 at 1:28 pm

    I got offered Longoria and Profar for Machado

  11. 86w183 May 24th, 2013 at 1:30 pm

    I think Adams has been outstanding since getting his chance. Anyone else that can see a little Brosius in him ?? bat will be more consistent, but I doubt his glove will be as good.

  12. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 1:38 pm

    I hope he’s way better than Brosius. His career OPS+ was 94. He was merely at the right place at the right time.

  13. blake May 24th, 2013 at 1:39 pm

    As I’ve said….he reminds me of Michael Young

  14. Warning Track Power May 24th, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    Adams has excelled. Cashman has said that Youk is probably 1 week away from returning. Who will be sent down to make room for Youk? That’s the big question.
    So far Adams does not deserve to be sent down, but Adams sure is playing well enough to stick around a little longer.

    Is Nix expendable? I don’t think so. Nix can play SS, 2b and 3b. Utility IF’s are very valuable on this team.

  15. Ys Guy May 24th, 2013 at 1:43 pm

    francessa said today that the bad ratings and lower attendance for a hard playing first place yankees team is a bad reflection on yankees fans.

    kay said on his show yesterday afternoon that it means yankees fans are the same as atlanta fans.

    i pretty much agree, but i’ve never held alot of yankees fans in very high regard anyway

  16. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 1:43 pm

    Francisco and Brignac will probably be the first to go.

  17. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 1:45 pm

    Yeah, Kay was really whining about the ratings yesterday.

    Look, it’s the free market in action. I don’t think there is any reason to condemn viewers for exercising their viewing options.

    I watch regularly, but I am an addict.

  18. fantasygame101 May 24th, 2013 at 1:52 pm

    adams should bat 2nd.

  19. Ys Guy May 24th, 2013 at 1:55 pm

    you go to the games and you see:
    people wearing $200 replica jerseys with the #7 that say Mantle.
    people who just can’t wait to do the wave.
    the couple who sat next to me at the last game who finally figured out in the 5th inning that arod wasnt in the lineup.
    people who came just to watch the ‘subway race’

    i think alot of those people are the ones not watching or going to many games.

    no great loss, imo, although its not good for the yankees bottom line.

  20. ron May 24th, 2013 at 2:05 pm

    I like adams batting 2nd.
    Also,adams should stay til arod returns.
    I love the kids swing.
    Nunez,and youk will be back soon,but brignac,fransisco should go to compensate.
    It get’s tougher when tex comes back,but I think the right call would be to painfully let overbay go,unless you keep him,and send nunez down.

    stewart
    romine
    tex
    haffner
    cano
    nunez
    adams
    granderson
    gardner
    wells
    ichiro
    youk
    nix + 12 pitchers
    That means overbay gone.
    I can’t see them pulling adams off of 3b,but that also means youk gets less playing time.
    Tough call.
    Do you send him down til youk gets hurt again,and play youk at 3b so you can keep overbay,or do you get rid of overbay,keep adams,with youk getting much less playing time?
    Tex,if healthy,is not going to be platooned much.

  21. saucY May 24th, 2013 at 2:05 pm

    i haven’t been to a game at the stadium since the playoffs in 2009. it wasn’t planned or anything. i just kind of noticed one day that it’s been a few years.

    something about paying $60+ for a seat that is similar to what i used to get (around 2006) on a weekday as part of the fujifilm $5 pack might have something to do with it. still, i’m into this team as much as i’ve ever been.

    or maybe i’m old and just don’t have the motivation to go into the city for games.

    i’m not a bad fan though. honest.

  22. bruceb May 24th, 2013 at 2:06 pm

    Not surprised the ratings are down. This team is plucky and has won a lot of close games, which has rightly earned plaudits from the fans, particularly those of us who thought they would struggle early doors. But they don’t score many runs and they’re not very exciting to watch.

  23. tucker May 24th, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    If the Yanks are so concerned about ratings, maybe they should start with their $23 million per year first baseman on the DL. The guy is tweeting about everything but his team — Sports Yapper, Georgia Tech, his extended spring results (as if the fans care when Overbay is outperforming him.)

    Jason Zillo needs to sit down with Tex and give him a lesson or two on PR 101. The guy should get roasted by the fans when he’s off the DL and badly missing those looping breaking balls on the outside corner from righties.

  24. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 2:25 pm

    Tex does seem a bit out of touch.

  25. bruceb May 24th, 2013 at 2:25 pm

    Fair point, Tucker. Guy thinks he’s a superstar. Shame he doesn’t play like one. He should put a lid on it – at least until he’s back in the team and earning his wages.

  26. Cashmoney May 24th, 2013 at 2:26 pm

    Yanks have Tex and Youk returning, Overbay is the logical choice to let go if you want to see what Adams has got. If Yanks had Nunez and Jeter returning, then I probably let Nix go.

  27. blake May 24th, 2013 at 2:30 pm

    “Yanks have Tex and Youk returning, Overbay is the logical choice to let go if you want to see what Adams has got. If Yanks had Nunez and Jeter returning, then I probably let Nix go.”

    I’d let Francisco go way before Overbay…..and I’d let Brignac go before Nix.

  28. G. Love May 24th, 2013 at 2:31 pm

    I’m thinking Francisco is 1st to go for either Youk/Tex. Then when the 2nd is ready it’s probably going to be Adams sent down since I think they’re going to hold onto Overbay for as long as they can.

    When Nunez is ready, Brignac is out.

    When Cervelli is ready Romine goes down.

  29. blake May 24th, 2013 at 2:32 pm

    I can’t decide whether to trade Machado for Longo and Profar! I should probably but I like Manny……decisions.

  30. Warning Track Power May 24th, 2013 at 2:33 pm

    people wearing $200 replica jerseys with the #7 that say Mantle.
    ——————————————————————————————
    Fans wearing these jerseys really hit a nerve with me.
    i don’t know how much they cost, but the people should know better.
    no reason to have Mantle written on the back of the jersey.
    DUH!

  31. Cashmoney May 24th, 2013 at 2:34 pm

    fefinitely Francisco blake, but I am not high on Nix than some, you really can’t be that high on a guy who ops sub 600 for the year and is average defensively to me. It’s a flip a coin to me with Brignac and Nix, both have some pops, B might be able take advantage of short porch. B is also a better defensive player than Nix.

  32. blake May 24th, 2013 at 2:35 pm

    they can’t send Adams down…..he’s one of the best hitters they have vs LHP

  33. Triple Short of a Cycle May 24th, 2013 at 2:36 pm

    I can’t decide whether to trade Machado for Longo and Profar! I should probably but I like Manny……decisions.

    Is it a keeper league?

  34. Cashmoney May 24th, 2013 at 2:36 pm

    flip of…

  35. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 2:37 pm

    As Chad said in a prior post today, Girardi seemed to signal that Adams will stay if he continues to play well.

  36. tucker May 24th, 2013 at 2:37 pm

    I don’t think there is any way they’ll let Nix go. He is the only guy who can competently back up SS, 2B and 3b, and we know how much Girardi and Cashman value defense and pitching.

  37. Barry May 24th, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    David Adams is twenty-six years of age. 26 years old. Not by any definition a kid.

  38. Cashmoney May 24th, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    Brignac can and probably is a tad better than Nix range wise. I am gonna assume yanks will stick with Nix because he is been here longer.

  39. blake May 24th, 2013 at 2:40 pm

    “Is it a keeper league?”

    yes…..

  40. G. Love May 24th, 2013 at 2:40 pm

    Well I’m being as honest as I possibly can as a fan and what turned me off to the Yankees was the bad post season offense and guys like Tex, Swisher, Martin and Arod after his chronicled attempt to pick up women during a playoff game.

    There was nothing mildly inspiring about watching them all mentally fall to pieces when the games counted the most.

    Getting our clocks cleaned by Detroit was the ultimate slap because we didn’t compete. This wasn’t losing 4 straight to Boston after taking the first 3. This was a team that looked like it got into the playoffs by accident which if Raul Ibanez didn’t wake up in September would’ve been true.

    As for attendance, comparing us to Braves fans is offensive. It doesn’t cost remotely what it costs to attend Yankee games at the stadium. If you drive, it’s $40 to park. Before you get anything. That’s just too much money on top of tickets for most people to handle in this economy without feeling a pinch.

    If the Yankees cut their prices and fixed the ridiculous parking fee arrangement it would sent a lot of goodwill to fans who would love to spend an afternoon at the park but can’t justify it or afford it.

    You take a team with a bad aftertaste & high prices and you start to understand why people are staying away.

    As for why they’re not watching, that has as much to do with people’s attention spans in today’s world than anything. TV ratings for popular shows are a fraction of what they were. I know people who used to go to games who now only get score alerts on their phones instead of putting in the time to watch. It’s the world we live in. Some people just don’t want to spend 3-4 hours watching a game when they can get the score, look at the stats and see the highlights later.

  41. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 2:40 pm

    “I don’t think there is any way they’ll let Nix go. He is the only guy who can competently back up SS, 2B and 3b, and we know how much Girardi and Cashman value defense and pitching.”

    I think Nix’s SS defense is pretty bad, but I agree that he is likely to remain.

  42. blake May 24th, 2013 at 2:41 pm

    it sounds like a great deal….however Longoria is hurt all the time and I think Machado is really special and will play SS again at some point. Profar might be special one day too but it’s still more of a might with him than Machado….plus Texas is dragging their feet getting him in the lineup every day./

  43. champ809 May 24th, 2013 at 2:46 pm

    At this point vs. RHP the lineup should be;

    Grandy LF
    Adams 3B
    Robbie 2B
    Pronk DH
    Wells RF
    Overbay 1B
    Romine/Stewart C
    Gardy CF
    Brignac/Nix SS

  44. blake May 24th, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    I think the Yankees probably are going to have to take some measures to make going to the ball park unlike anything you can get watching on TV at home….

  45. Ys Guy May 24th, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    i completely disagree about tex’s texting. he has every right to text about anything he likes. there is no reason to believe texting will affect his rehab in any way and everyone has the right to express their opinions as they see fit.

    the only time texting can become a problem is when players text about their team or teammates, which seems to be what he’s doing.

    do you really think that anyone in ‘rehab’ in any field can or does spend 24 hours per day working out or preparing themselves mentally for when they go back to work? you’d go insane before you even got back.

    if you dont like what tex is texting, unfollow him or whatever it is you do, but any man has the right to express his or her opinion.

  46. Triple Short of a Cycle May 24th, 2013 at 2:50 pm

    Blake,

    That is a really tough call. Profar is the wild card which could make or break the deal. I’m not a big Longoria guy since he is always hurt.

    I mean is Profar worth enough to negate the injury risk that Longoria comes with. Could you maybe get someone else instead of Profar?

  47. G. Love May 24th, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    Y’s Guy,

    You may disagree, but I disagree with you and so do many fans who see a used car salesman on Twitter who never mentions his team and how they’re playing and actually tells his followers to watch other sports with him when the Yankees are on.

    Add in the fact he is hitting like a scrub against RHP the last 3 seasons and clogging up the payroll and you start to understand why some might be a bit put off by the whole act.

    Just because you’re so enlightened that it doesn’t bother you doesn’t mean you’re right, you know?

  48. fantasygame101 May 24th, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    andino dfa, soon a yankee? we can try them all.

  49. G. Love May 24th, 2013 at 2:52 pm

    blake,

    Every seat needs to come with a personal masseuse and a direct line to Girardi’s dugout phone to get some of the people who have walked.

  50. Pat M. May 24th, 2013 at 2:53 pm

    Word is that The Yanks are shopping Joba , yet again…..

  51. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 2:53 pm

    It’s not about what Tex can do, it’s what he could do.

    Of course, if he stopped massively declining v. RHP, it may not matter.

  52. G. Love May 24th, 2013 at 2:53 pm

    Pat M.,

    Are they selling him by the pound?

  53. tucker May 24th, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    Most people on this forum pay attention to the team much more closely than the average fan, but I think a lot of the fan base is turned off by some of the things frequently discussed on this forum.

    The Yankees brand waxes and wanes with the product on the field. The fans are willing to pay extra if they feel they are going to see a team that will grind and compete. But when the front office is fixated on cutting payroll, “star” players such as Tex do not identify with fans and the team still charges exorbitant prices for seats without taking steps to make parking more affordable, I think it pushes away fans who both stay away from the stadium and don’t tune into the broadcasts.

  54. Shame Spencer May 24th, 2013 at 2:58 pm

    Man I can’t wait for the game to start.. the whole rotation has been must-see tv, and Phelps has been no different.

  55. randy l. May 24th, 2013 at 2:58 pm

    “Cervelli will be the primary catcher for the next few years…the pitchers like throwing to him.”

    do you really think he was sent to triple a last year if the pitchers liked throwing to him ?

  56. yankeehotelfoxtrot May 24th, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    blake, I’d probably hold on to Manny. He’s been good (21 doubles already?!?) and my guess is that he’ll get progressively better. Young Profar is unproven and his minor league stats aren’t all that impressive imo, at all. I like Longo but he’s injury prone and not all that exciting (although I realize that personality has no impact on fantasy stats).

  57. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    The Yankees are great at selling low.

  58. fantasygame101 May 24th, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    I think if they can trade joba, they should do it. Joba will be gone after this season and they can not offer him contract to get picks bec. it will be expensive for his role. They can also include some players in the 40 man roster in the trade to open up more space.

  59. blake May 24th, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    “I mean is Profar worth enough to negate the injury risk that Longoria comes with. Could you maybe get someone else instead of Profar?’

    he doesn’t have anyone else I want really….the thing about our league is that we also have rookie roster of 5 players and we can protect rookies through the first 5 rounds of the following year draft…..so Profar would be almost like an extra keeper for me. I dont think I’m going to do it…..

  60. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    It’s not about if, it’s about when. If they aren’t going to sign Joba and/or Hughes, by all means, be open to trade offers, but not when their value is at a low points, as Joba’s probably is.

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

    Dude… keep Machado.

  62. astrocityfan May 24th, 2013 at 3:13 pm

    i am so over Joba. I hope he is happy elsewhere but if we can get anything for him, i think they should. Maybe im too old fashioned but you dont publicly disrespect someone like Mo. Just anothe example of his immaturity.

    I think the ratings and lower attendance are just simply a result of the team’s perceived lack of stars. People are used to a celebrity laden team and the causal fan doesnt want to pay the hefty price of going to the stadium to see a scrappy team. Just mho

  63. blake May 24th, 2013 at 3:13 pm

    “blake, I’d probably hold on to Manny. He’s been good (21 doubles already?!?) and my guess is that he’ll get progressively better. Young Profar is unproven and his minor league stats aren’t all that impressive imo, at all. I like Longo but he’s injury prone and not all that exciting (although I realize that personality has no impact on fantasy stats).”

    Profar is a stud prospect but I think it’s possible he could be a better in real life than in fantasy type guy and I don’t know if he’ll ever get to play SS unless Texas trades him……

    I also got offered Posey for Machado straight up …..lol.

  64. Pat M. May 24th, 2013 at 3:17 pm

    Rich in NJ……The sad truth is that Joba’s value has been below his performance level for years. The issue is that Cashman still wants to get more than what clubs are willing to exchange in return for him……Also, contrary to what many here still what to believe , he’s not viewed as a starting pitcher but he could be a solid closer if he ever got his head together……Patience in the Bronx ran out for him ever since the trampoline incident. Well according to a few guys in the business.

  65. G. Love May 24th, 2013 at 3:21 pm

    With the roster logjam, they should only be looking to deal Joba for players not on the 40 man if possible.

    Another team is only getting 1/2 a season of Joba so he can’t be asking for much.

    They actually should be searching for a good hitting 1b from the left side that can be brought up and down and has options if they are forced to get rid of Overbay.

  66. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 3:25 pm

    Pat M.

    Even if that’s true, the Yankees are at least co-complicit.

    They rushed him to the ML before he had sufficient IP in the mL , shifted him back and forth between roles, never gave him a chance to start again after the injury even though he has been a better starter than Hughes, by the numbers (not to mention AJ as a Yankee), and despite the fact his shoulder injury didn’t require surgery unlike Pineda’s.

    If his frustration with that mistreatment has affected his decision-making, I can understand why.

  67. fantasygame101 May 24th, 2013 at 3:27 pm

    control and strikeout are joba’s problem. He wants to strike out every batter but he lacks enough control of his stuff to make it happens.

  68. Ys Guy May 24th, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    g love
    you seem very opinionated about tex and his texting.
    thank goodness you have the right to vent your opinions in a public forum.

  69. Shame Spencer May 24th, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    I think the most shocking thing is reading that Cash wants more for Joba than other teams are willing to offer… it’s got me wondering what other teams are offering lol. Equipment??

  70. austinmac May 24th, 2013 at 3:32 pm

    When you spend all off season telling fans you are cutting back after such a disheartening season’s end, it will impact the average fan. We are not those. People want excitement. They want offense.

    I have said all year this will be the result. George knew the value of the big news. He wanted to win the back pages–all year.

    Winning will hopefully bring fans back, but the doubt is still very much out there. I read the key young male 25-54 group viewership is down over 50%. That’s not the economy, ticket prices or any of the other common rationales.

    That is the one reason the team may try to make a move–perhaps, not a good one–to get a name bat.

  71. astrocityfan May 24th, 2013 at 3:33 pm

    Shame,
    Maybe they want the yanks to chip in for the doughnuts Joba will eat when they get him :)

  72. G. Love May 24th, 2013 at 3:34 pm

    Y’s,

    I’m very opinionated and passionate about everything that interests me. If people didn’t have opinions, yourself included, we’d all just write “Go Yankees” and use emoticons when we’re happy and sad. Opinions, are at the very least, interesting and give people a general idea that there are other thoughts and ways of thinking out there than their own.

  73. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 3:35 pm

    If G. Love wasn’t opinionated, I wouldn’t read his posts.

  74. Pat M. May 24th, 2013 at 3:38 pm

    Rich in NJ……There’s enough blame to go around on Joba-gate…..The sad thing is that the front office e ran scared after the misfotunes that plagued Hughes, Kennedy & Chamberlain in 2008……The injuries were of a fluke nature however it doomed any serious youth movement still in affect to this day……It became clear to me back in 08 when Joba kept shaking off Jose Molina and in one game cost the club a win…..Regadless of what is said ti the media, other club’s understand that he’s not the easiest of guys to deal with in the dugout and clubhouse…..Fast forward to 2013 and by December all three will find success elsewhere

  75. G. Love May 24th, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    austinmac,

    Good points, although I do think people in that age group and younger don’t watch games the same way they used to.

    I was actually watching the presentation for the new Xbox coming out and that thing is an ADD machine where you’re constantly checking on multiple streams of entertainment at the same time. I’m not sure how you focus or ever calm down.

    If I had all the entertainment options at my fingertips now that kids do, I would’ve never graduated high school. I would’ve been stuck watching season marathons of TV shows while playing video games on my tablet/phone and downloading streaming/music.

    People don’t watch TV the way they used to. The numbers show it. I think the Yankees are caught in the perfect storm of having an uninspiring post season run for a few years, a polarizing figure in Arod who a lot of people are sick of and no Jeter.

    That said, they are a far more entertaining team to me right now than they have been in awhile…but I’m a superfan who tries to catch all the games if I can.

  76. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    Pat

    True, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the FO’s change of plans came from Levine/Hal. Whatever my reservations about Cashman’s judgment, it just doesn’t seem plausible that he would do a complete 180 on development.

    If they are serious about development being integral to cost-control (which is obviously true), that will need to change.

  77. Ys Guy May 24th, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    I’m very opinionated and passionate about everything that interests me. If people didn’t have opinions, yourself included, we’d all just write “Go Yankees” and use emoticons when we’re happy and sad. Opinions, are at the very least, interesting and give people a general idea that there are other thoughts and ways of thinking out there than their own.”
    ===============================================
    so you and i should have the right to post our opinions about anything we like but mark texiera shouldnt because he doesn’t hit RH pitching as well as you’d like him too?

    oh, and btw, most baseball players dont even watch their teams on tv when they are on the dl.

    The Braves need bullpen help badly…..Cash should see what they’d give for Jobber…..Boonie too if Rapada and Cabral get healthy.

  79. Ys Guy May 24th, 2013 at 3:48 pm

    board poll: assuming he’s not at the trop tonight, how many innings of tonight’s game do you think derek jeter will watch live on his tv?

    ill say none of it.

  80. G. Love May 24th, 2013 at 3:49 pm

    Y’s,

    How do you know most players don’t watch their teams when they’re on the DL? You can prove this other than your opinion that it’s the case?

  81. Jerkface May 24th, 2013 at 3:49 pm

    I just want to say its hilarious that SJ44 found my twitter account and blocked me before I could ever even follow him or do anything.

  82. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    I would love to move Boone, free agent-to be, not a true LOOGY, inconsistent overall.

  83. Jerkface May 24th, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    How do you know most players don’t watch their teams when they’re on the DL?

    I can’t prove most, but I can prove Jeter doesn’t. He should count as like 10 players.
    Most players don’t like to watch, thats like a common thing.

    Mark Teixeira@teixeiramark25
    Six more AB’s today and later going to hang with my #Yankees teammates at the Trop. Big series vs #Rays this weekend!

    “I just want to say its hilarious that SJ44 found my twitter account and blocked me before I could ever even follow him or do anything.”

    So were many of his posts here. He is up and down like an elevator on ‘roids.

  86. Ys Guy May 24th, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    yes it is my opinion. and because im not a yankee i guess i get to express it in public.

    but ive also heard a ton of ex players say exactly that.

  87. G. Love May 24th, 2013 at 3:52 pm

    yanksfem,

    Perfect timing.

  88. blake May 24th, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    JF,

    Longoria and Profar for Machado? What to do……

  89. Jerkface May 24th, 2013 at 3:55 pm

    Longoria and Profar for Machado? What to do……

    Who do you have? Longoria is hitting real well and Profar should be decent, and I don’t see why Machado would be better by himself than Longoria.

    francessa said today that the bad ratings and lower attendance for a hard playing first place yankees team is a bad reflection on yankees fans.

    There’s a pretty clear difference between a fan posting certain things and a player that represents an organization posting certain things. No one’s saying he doesn’t have the right to.. he certainly does. But it opens him up to criticism given the way some fans interpret it.

  92. blake May 24th, 2013 at 3:57 pm

    “Who do you have? Longoria is hitting real well and Profar should be decent, and I don’t see why Machado would be better by himself than Longoria.”

    I have Machado…..it’s a keeper league though and Longoria gets hurt all the time… as soon as I make the trade Longoria will pull a hammy.

  93. Ys Guy May 24th, 2013 at 3:57 pm

    willkamm i posted the same quote from francessa earlier. also , michael kay on espn radio yesterday afternoon said that yankees fans are spoiled like braves fans.

  94. Shame Spencer May 24th, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    Mega Python vs. Gatoroid is on…. Stars Tiffany and Debbie Gibson. They also produced it. It’s exactly what you’d imagine and I therefore love it.

  95. sammiejohnson May 24th, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    wallace matthews ?@ESPNNYYankees 1m

    No lineup yet but Nova is back and it looks like Betances, who was just summoned to the mgr’s office, is going back down

  96. Jerkface May 24th, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    If its a keeper league you get Profar.

    The Yankees are great at selling low.

    and buying high.

  100. yankeefeminista May 24th, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    G.Love, lol. I just noticed that. I think Teix is reading you on Lohud. ;)

  101. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    ………….

    Daniel Barbarisi ?@DanBarbarisi 14s
    Chris stewart back in the lineup, catching. Says his groin feels good. And that he’ll just hit home runs so he wont have to run the bases.

  102. Shame Spencer May 24th, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    Hmm.. does that mean Nova to the pen? Or will he slot in until Andy comes back?

  103. yankeefeminista May 24th, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    Jennings is getting a maintenance day. So at least we don’t have to worry about him at the top of the order. Catch you all later.

  104. Ys Guy May 24th, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    it looks like profar is going back to the minors next week when kinsler comes back.

    hes only started 2 of the 4 games he’s been up for so far. washington is splitting 2b between him and luery garcia until kipnis comes back then profar is going back down.

  105. yankeefeminista May 24th, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    Marc Topkin @TBTimes_Rays 26m
    #Rays lineup v. #Yankees: Joyce rf, Zobrist 2b, Scott dh, Longoria 3b, Loney 1b, Johnson lf, Fuld cf, Lobaton c, Escobar ss, Hernandez p

  106. ac1 May 24th, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    Nova is going to the pen.
    Makes no sense.
    Just keep him in AAA starting.
    Or just slot him in there instead of Nuno.
    Nova, like Phelps, should be starting (Nuno too).

  107. willkamm May 24th, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    Yes I included your post in mine. I just wanted to add the quote by Yogi from years ago.

    control and strikeout are joba’s problem. He wants to strike out every batter but he lacks enough control of his stuff to make it happens.

    Plus he has no self control either. For the most part the scarecrow has no brain.
