    Pretty good lineup.

  3. ac1 May 24th, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    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.
    ___

    Be careful…. Ortiz hurt himself jogging on a homerun and missed the whole second half of last season and first month of this one.

  4. ac1 May 24th, 2013 at 4:07 pm

    Based on our offensive options, this is the best lineup we can field.
    We need a SS (this is a MUST).
    While I want Nunez to succeed, he was struggling with the bat and Jeter is out until best case August. Nix and Brignac aren’t the answer. Nix is out utility back up and Brignac SUCKS.

  5. ac1 May 24th, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    Re: SS. Is there a chance they move Refsnyder from 2B to SS if we end up re-signing Cano?

  6. Jerkface May 24th, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    Refsnyder can barely play 2B I don’t see why he’d move to a harder position.

    Which proves how wonderfully fit someone like David Ortiz is.

  9. ron May 24th, 2013 at 4:10 pm

    I think if phelps pitches well,nova stays in the pen,or gets sent down.
    I’d send him down,and keep warren as the longman.

    Who would of though a lineup with adams,stewart,overbay,nix is a pretty good lineup.
    It looks like girardi settled on his outfield.

  10. ac1 May 24th, 2013 at 4:10 pm

    Exactly. The roids also break down the body (Ortiz, A-Rod, etc…..)

    Stewie is way more fit, but just saying. Be careful.

    ___

    Based on the options, these are the best 9 players for the positions.

    I really wish Adams could play some SS because when Youkilis comes back, it would be nice to still have Adams in the lineup everyday, not just vs. lefties (of course once Tex returns, Youkilis won’t be playing much 1B, meaning Adams will get nada until Tex and Youkilis end up back on the DL.

  12. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 4:13 pm

    Stewart might be better today, but Romine would likely be better if he got more PT, and I think that’s worth doing.

  13. blake May 24th, 2013 at 4:13 pm

    “If its a keeper league you get Profar.”

    true but he might be a star….Machado already is one and they are basically the same age. If I knew Profar was gonna play SS at some point soon then I would have already done it but who knows what Texas will do with him…..

  14. blake May 24th, 2013 at 4:14 pm

    why don’t they send Nova to AAA to figure himself out

  15. tucker May 24th, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    Probably the best lineup they can put together at this point. Stewie, for all his limitations, is a better hitter now than Romine, who frankly looks overmatched. He has time to improve. And Brignac is a goner once Nunie gets healthy.

  16. ac1 May 24th, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    Its just nice seeing Itchy Brother not in the lineup.

    I think adams is going to make it very difficult to take him out of the lineup.
    Reminds me of david wright.
    An inch taller,same weight.

  20. Ys Guy May 24th, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    the other day john and suzyn were as usual, giving stats and then mocking said stats, when john compared a player’s stats when his team wins vs. stats in team losses, with the idea of what johns stats might be on days when he wears pink undershorts.

    as soon as i heard it, i thought, ‘thats pretty weird even for john’ and sure enough i read about it on twitter, i think there’s an audiofile of it available online and this morning the wfan clown guy was playing it.

  21. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    “why don’t they send Nova to AAA to figure himself out”

    They probably think that Nova is one of their 12 best pitchers for today, and so tomorrow doesn’t matter.

  22. ac1 May 24th, 2013 at 4:17 pm

    Time to screw up Nova with the back and forth between the pen and rotation.
    This worked for Phelps because he started in the pen (up here – i realize not in the minors)
    Nova has been pitching in the rotation for 2 years. This will not help him or us.

  23. blake May 24th, 2013 at 4:17 pm

    they should leave Adams at 3B and play Youk vs LHP at 1B and DH when Tex returns. Youk can play 3B every now and then…..Youk isn’t an every day player anymore….his body can’t handle it. They should see if Adams is

  24. Pat M. May 24th, 2013 at 4:18 pm

    If this lineup was posted before spring training and then was told that they’re in first place ??? No way…..That being said, this club as it looks like right now reminds me of the early 70′s ballcubs ( 72-73-74 ) that hung around in contention but just ran out of gas come September…..At least there’s hope that some possible outstanding talent will be returning…..

  25. fantasygame101 May 24th, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    trade romine now.

    No one could have foreseen what Overbay has done v. RHP:

    .296 .339 .546 .885

    It’s complete luck, but luck is good.

  28. tucker May 24th, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    Wonder if Adams’ switch to 3B was prompted at all by his ankle injury. The injury may robbed him of some mobility and lateral movement. If he is not playing 2b, he certainly can’t play shortstop.

    Of course, the move to 3b was practical, too, as Cano is the incumbent 2B for the foreseeable future (pending contract negotiations).

  29. ac1 May 24th, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    trade romine now.
    ______

    If Cervelli could stay healthy, I would agree with this. I think Cervelli is a little worse behind the plate than Romine but knows the pitchers, has much improved, and is better at the plate.

  30. yankeehotelfoxtrot May 24th, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    “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……”

    Definitely one of those “time will tell” type deals.

  31. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    You need three viable ML ready catchers. Trading Romine now would not be smart.

    ___

    He still plays 2B. The move was because we needed a 3B and Cano is set at 2B.

    He also made the most of whatever rbi opportunities he got. 2 out risp 1.065

    “Longoria is good. I’d take the injury risk with the potential upside of Profar”

    it’s a good deal as you get 2 goods players for one…..I just like Manny and if the O’s every move him back to SS he has best player in baseball potential.

    I took 3 upside picks in our draft…..Manny Machado, Jose Fernandez, and Matt Harvey.

  38. Al in Houston May 24th, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    Why not Reid Brignac at SS? It seems former players do well against teams that let them go?

  44. Chip May 24th, 2013 at 4:45 pm

    Brigniac and Romine should be in the lineup. Nix & Stewart have played well, but we know what we’re getting from them…this is as good as it gets. We could potentially get more from Romine and Brigniac than we’ve gotten from them.

  45. Chip May 24th, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    Blake,

    The question is whether Vidal Nuno or Ivan Nova makes the start tomorrow.

  46. bruceb May 24th, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    Hope it’s Nuno. We know what we’re getting from Nova…and it’s nothing special.

  47. bruceb May 24th, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    But I suspect it will be Nova as the Yanks do seem to have a pecking order.

    Brignac really Chip?
    No way. Nix is better than Brignac.

  49. ac1 May 24th, 2013 at 4:53 pm

    I honestly believe this is the BEST lineup we can have with the players currently on the roster. I will say the catcher is pretty irrelevant (Stewie was ok and Romine hasn’t quite got in a groove yet – Cervelli was ahead of both of them by a mile).

  50. fantasygame101 May 24th, 2013 at 4:53 pm

    any other backup catcher can back up stewart bec. he himself is a backup. Romine is either the catcher now or never will be. They still have cervelli for next yr and of course stewart then they have murphy and sanchez.

  51. ac1 May 24th, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    Cervelli and Nunez have missed out on major opportunities to make their mark here.
    We actually NEED both of them in this lineup and they were handed the opp (Cervelli was pulling away from Stewie).

    Afternoon.

    Pat M.-

    Does not surprise me in the least if that is the Yankee’s attitude towards Joba.

    I am an advocate of trading him if sufficient value can be obtained. We have others who can do his job much less expensively and with equal or better ability.

    Sounds like maybe we can’t the value we’d need in return.

  56. ac1 May 24th, 2013 at 4:59 pm

    Chip we have to agree to disagree.
    Nix has played ok with regular playing time.
    Brignac has never shown he can do that, and he is showing the same thing here.
    I will give you i’d eather see Brignac swing at strike three than Nix stare at it right down the middle (which he does more than any player i have ever seen).

  57. fantasygame101 May 24th, 2013 at 5:03 pm

    Brignac is a better ss than nix. That alone should warrant more playing time. Plus you can not evaluate him by not playing him more. Nunez has done little so SS is a hole until jeter comes back. Try brignac then if it does not work out, try another then another.

  58. ac1 May 24th, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    Have you watched brignac play these games? Does he have even 1 hit yet?

    The yankees cannot let that happen.
    He takes two months to even start hitting.
    He needs at least two weeks maybe more…..
    Two games?

  61. blake May 24th, 2013 at 5:08 pm

  74. fantasygame101 May 24th, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    nix has been with the Yankees for so long so he is what he is as a Yankees. Brignac is new so he could thrive here but he needs to be able to play at least to prove himself out of this team. As long as he is not going to hurt you on defense, give 2 weeks of 5 games each to prove then next candidate then next candidate.

  75. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 5:33 pm

    The only reason I’d keep Brignac over Nix is if they hit the same, because Brig is a better SS, and that could be a position of need.

    I thought the idea behind getting Brignac was to platoon he and Nix at SS. Today, the Yanks are facing a righty, so why isn’t Brignac starting at SS? Same situation occurred vs Balt. It’s No wonder the Yanks are having trouble juggling the 40 Man Roster, when they add Brignac, and he and Nix both play sporadically at SS.

    Blake,

    The question is whether Vidal Nuno or Ivan Nova makes the start tomorrow.

    I’ve always been of the impression that Girardi doesn’t trust Nova. He’s pulled him an awful lot during the 1st sign of real trouble 5th inning or so. I think he’s going to give this independent league pickup a longer look.
    Just don’t think Nova is in Joltin Joe’s circle of trust.

    My money’s on Nuno starting considering Nova is just back. They’re still listing Nuno as the starter.

    Yup he’s never hit in the Major Leagues. Ever. Funny thing is he hit well thru AA and was probably league average at AAA. Don’t know much about him though other then he’s seems to have been a career utility man in the Major leagues.

    I hope that this isn’t true. Tex definitely needs the full 30 days of games before he is ready to be activated. Everyone knows that it takes him about 2 months to get his timing. Watching him make out bat after at bat isn’t going to be fun.

  89. ObviousMan May 24th, 2013 at 5:50 pm

    Amongst professional and baseball expert circles unaffiliated with the team, Girardi is a manager of the year candidate. Amongst “Realistic!” Yankee fans on lohud, Girardi should be fired tomorrow, even though he’s led cashman’s “terrible” team to 1st place in the east in a year by injuries. Well, according to rich in nj,the only reason the the yankees are playing well is because of their payroll! No, I kid you not, Yankee “fans” right here use the same payroll excuse jealous Yankee haters do. For fans like Rich and Prufrock, it’s less about liking the yankees and more about hating the team’s GM and manager like they were Osama bin laden and Timothy mcveigh. Pathetic.

    I would bat Adams in the 5 hole today, and split up Hafner and Grandy. Time for Adams to start batting in the heart of the order.

    i like lyle overbay, he’s been around a long time. he’s up and then he’s down.

    we’ve seen the up so far but its not likely to last even for half a season.

    last year he in april and may he OPS’d .905 and 1.084

    but then in july he ops’d .269 and was released.

    in september he was picked up by the braves and OPS’d .126

    they let him go at the end of the year.

    then the red sox released him in ST.

    im hoping tex makes it back before the carriage turns back into a pumpkin.

    thanks lyle!

    I hope that this isn’t true. Tex definitely needs the full 30 days of games before he is ready to be activated. Everyone knows that it takes him about 2 months to get his timing. Watching him make out bat after at bat isn’t going to be fun.

    I’d be the 1st one to admit I never paid a lot of attention to Tex until he came to NY. This horrible performance April/May looks to be something more recent then throughout his career. I’m just going by his splits as listed at Baseball Reference.

    April looks to always have been poor .767 OPS. But his career numbers May on are no lower then.881. Wonder if he got lazy once he left Texas and became a hired gun?

    Is there any site that has platoon splits broken down month by month, year over year?

    rich i havent found an easy to use ‘double split’ site but if you find one, lemme know.

  98. Rich in NJ May 24th, 2013 at 6:05 pm

    OK, there should be one.

    Refsnyder is a hitter with no established position.

    Presently playing first which seems curious because he appears to be a contact guy with minimal power. Sort of the opposite of Joseph.

    According to the radio, Yanks have lost the last nine series at the Trop. I knew our recent record there was pretty dismal but I didn’t realize it was quite that bad. To say we’re due is an understatement.

    You mean vs RH and LH then break it down month and year?

    Both Yahoo and Baseball reference have years broken down by months and they have RH and LH. But they don’t combine them.
