One last day in Seattle

Let’s start this Sunday with a few leftover notes and nuggets.

• Trying to win three out of four in Seattle, the Yankees will face Felix Hernandez this afternoon. “It’s big,” Joe Girardi said. “We know how tight our division is and we know how tough he has been on us. We’ve got to find a way to scratch some runs across.” David Phelps starts for the Yankees.

• Michael Pineda’s first rehab start was rained out yesterday. He’ll instead pitch for Class-A Tampa today.

• From MLB’s latest All-Star voting updates, the Yankees have just three players vaguely in the picture, but realistically only Robinson Cano is going to be a starting position player. He leads the voting at second base with 1,851,371 votes. Dustin Pedroia is second with 1,106,949. Derek Jeter is fifth at shortstop and Ichiro Suzuki is 15th in the outfield, but no other Yankees position player is even close enough to be mentioned in the announced voting results.

• The amateur draft is finished, the former Yankees first rounder Gerrit Cole — who refused to sign — is now about to make his major league debut with the Pirates. He’ll pitch in the big leagues on Tuesday. Other Yankees-related news out of Pittsburgh: Jeff Karstens just had shoulder surgery.

• Go check out Mark Feinsand’s latest Daily News podcast. There’s an interview with Mark Teixeira, and there’s also a roundtable discussion among myself, Feinsand and Sweeny Murti talking about the latest Alex Rodriguez situation.

    WFAN’s Richard Neer had a great interview yesterday with a lawyer about the A-Rod situation. In the CBA there is apparently a “for the good of the game” hearing process that circumvents the arbitration process and leaves suspensions in the hands of Selig directly.

    Additionally, as for the notion that Alex and the other players could appeal an arbitration ruling that they should be suspended in the court system; the lawyer points out that judges routinely throw out those cases saying that the parties involved all signed off on the CBA so win lose or draw they need to take their medicine.

    In essence, this guy said that with the evidence, circumstantial as it may be, that they have – the players are screwed.

    100 game suspension for Arod, sounds like. I hope it is levied in August so that the 100 game suspension eats up half of 2014 for Arod. I don’t want him near this team.

    Headley’s trade value is tanking.

    Good morning all —–

    I think this Bio-Genesis thing will hinge on the shipment and phone records. If there are is any significant level of communication between a player and the clinic and/or record(s) of package shipment(s) then that will be enough evidence for baseball’s standard of “proof”.

    Great to see Andy get that milestone win. At some point baseball needs to take a really hard look at starting pitchers and Cooperstown. You can’t go by the 300-win standard with older generation (4-man rotation) pitchers and hold modern (5-man rotation) starters to that same standard.

    If you get 20 % fewer starts per season, shouldn’t the “standard” be 20 % lower? That would mean 240 wins is the new 300. At the very least it should be the win total at which the conversation begins.

    I think it is clear that Andy Pettitte and Mike Mussina had as good and I would argue clearly better careers and were better pitchers than Phil Niekro, Don Sutton, Bert Blyleven and Gaylord Perry.

    Andy’s an admitted steroid user – he won’t get into Cooperstown.

  5. 86w183 June 9th, 2013 at 9:24 am

    No he’s not.

    He used HGH twice while recovering from injury — as have most injured players over the last 25 years I might add. That’s ALWAYS been viewed differently from anabolic steroid use.

    Not saying it couldn’t/wouldn’t be a factor, but I don’t think it’s as significant.

    You make too much sense!! MLB is a dinosaur. Lol

  7. Doreen June 9th, 2013 at 9:26 am

    Also, you have to take his post seasons into account, right?

    ————————

    BBWAA is holding out players that they think used PEDs – guys who have credentials that are at least as good (in some cases better) than Andy: Piazza, Bagwell, Biggio just to name three.

    I don’t think there’s any way that they keep those players out and let a player who admitted to using in.

    Really? I don’t recall any reports that “most injured players” have used HGH as part of their recovery process.

    pat,

    Pretty scary for him and his wife.

  12. 86w183 June 9th, 2013 at 9:55 am

    I think that will soften over the years. time will tell. Many of the harshest voting hypocrites are older than dirt and may not be voting much longer.

    I just hope the conversation takes place regarding how modern starting pitchers should be evaluated. And, yes post-season should matter.

    Pettitte best stats — 250 wins, 105 games above .500, won almost 49.9 % of his starts and has 19 post-season wins.

    Hall of Famer X —- 318 wins (302 as starter), 44 games above .500, won 42 % of his starts and has ZERO post-season wins.

    Hall of Famer Y — 324 wins (321 as starter), 68 games above .500, won 42 % of his starts and has SIX post-season wins

    Hall of Famer Z — 287 wins (286 as starter), 37 games above .500, won 42 % of his starts and had FIVE post-season wins.

    X,Y,Z = Niekro, Sutton, Blyleven

  13. DONNYBROOK June 9th, 2013 at 9:57 am

    - IF IT’s MY CALL -

    (1) Immediately get to work on a 3 or 4 yr deal with Gardner. He’s morphing into Johnny Damon right before our eyes. Sure, the speed is gonna drop, but the power and Extra Base Hits are gonna climb. Currently, he is one of the Top 3 Defensive CF’ers in All of MLB.

    (2) Start Brignac at SS vs righties. Cano, Brignac, and Gardner give the Yanks strong D up-the-middle, which a championship team Must have.

    (3) When ahead, get Youk outta 3B from the 7th inning on. He’s a defensive liability, and physically a china doll. Use the combination of Brignac and Nix to fill 3B and SS.

    (4) Put a guy that can bunt in the 2 Hole, (Ichiro, Nix, whatever), and use Cano exclusively as your 3 Hole stick. Cano’s bat will come to life when this is done.

  14. 86w183 June 9th, 2013 at 9:58 am

    tbone —

    Ask any sports medicine professional who dealt with athletes’ rehab since the 1970s and you’ll find HGH was commonly used in recovery. No there are no “reports” to that fact any more than there are “reports” that document how common illegal amphetamine use was throughout the game since the 1920s.

    When the Olympics began testing for steroids HGH use took off as a means to speed up/enhance recovery.

  15. 86w183 June 9th, 2013 at 10:05 am

    Donnybrook —-

    I don’t think they’ll do # 1, but no arguments from me.

    I HATE Cano in the two-hole. I might just leave Nix there for now

    You left out 5 — Send Warren down so he can start, promote Mustelier to lengthen the bench and DFA Melky “The K” Mesa, Corbin “I have no role here” Joseph or Brett “I’m not very good” Marshall.

  16. Rich in NJ June 9th, 2013 at 10:06 am

    The best interests if baseball clause has never been challenged by a player whose pockets are as deep as A-Rod’s. I have no idea what will happen, but if Bud the Hypocrite tries to take A-Rod’s ability to make a living away for 100 games based on anything less than unassailable evidence, a court’s willingness to rely on the business judgment rule may not be as predictable as it would in ordinary cases.

  17. austinmac June 9th, 2013 at 10:07 am

    My gut instinct says products used to recover from a specific injury is different from taking them to enhance strength. If a product will,let one recover from injury faster, what is wrong with that.

    ———————-

    It will soften once someone already in the hall is exposed for being a PED user. Then the writers can get off their high horse.

  19. austinmac June 9th, 2013 at 10:12 am

    Marshall looked good in the spring and had a pretty good year last year. He has been awful so far. I don’t know what the is about.

    Mesa is striking out in the minors on an Adam Dunn pace. He would be no loss. Replace him with Mustelier and then, call him up.

    86w, you’re on your game today.

  20. 86w183 June 9th, 2013 at 10:13 am

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

    Honestly I see little-to-no difference. Steroids don’t build strength. They allow you to recover more quickly from workouts which lets you work out longer and more frequently. If you take anabolic steroids and do nothing you’ll just be a fat guy with acne.

    HGH and steroids both do essentially the same thing — help you recover from injury (and strenuous workouts do injure the body to some extent) more quickly than you could otherwise, thus you work longer, more often and get bigger and stronger.

    Every man has testosterone and HGH in his body.

  21. austinmac June 9th, 2013 at 10:14 am

    Rich,

    I question whether the general provision best interests of baseball can be used in circumstances where the CBA has specific rules and penalties. I would doubt it.

  22. 86w183 June 9th, 2013 at 10:15 am

    It will really soften when multiple members of the Hall embrace letting others in based on their accomplishments.

    As for A-rod challenging any suspension. His circumstanced wouldn’t even be part of the case. It would come down to a legal analysis of the CBA and the action taken within the terms of the CBA. Individual rights sorta disappear under those circumstances

  23. tbone1570 June 9th, 2013 at 10:18 am

    86w183,

    Have you talked to sports medical professionals about this ( I have not)? I would think that they would ethically not be able to talk about treatments they have provided to their patients.

    I have talked to a few professional athletes who said that they would not or did not use HGH for recovery purposes (not that they would gain anything by telling me the truth).

    Don’t get me wrong, I think the use of HGH was and maybe widespread do to the recent lack of an acceptable testing protocol, so I actually agree with your opinion. And yes, the were many “reports”, or at least story’s of the widespread use of greenies in the game.

  24. pat June 9th, 2013 at 10:18 am

    If there are suspensions, I want to see a couple of players sue Bosch and see MLB have to pay the settlements.

    Could you imagine Alex being suspended, suing Bosch for income lost based on HIPPA violation and MLB having to write that check.

  25. austinmac June 9th, 2013 at 10:20 am

    86,

    I look at Bonds and some of the other completely transformed bodies and think it is different. They took products, to recover from workouts, not to recover from injury. Breaking down muscles and rebuilding them with chemical help seems fundamentally different to me.

    I don’t trust Selig. Never have. Would you buy a used car from this man?

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

    Since Bosch isn’t a licensed physician, is he bound by the HIPPA provisions regarding privacy?

  27. Doreen June 9th, 2013 at 10:31 am

    pat,

    Interesting, to say the least!

  28. austinmac June 9th, 2013 at 10:34 am

    Tbone,

    Obviously, Bosch is not bound.

  29. jacksquat June 9th, 2013 at 10:35 am

    Chip June 9th, 2013 at 9:08 am
    WFAN’s Richard Neer had a great interview yesterday with a lawyer about the A-Rod situation. In the CBA there is apparently a “for the good of the game” hearing process that circumvents the arbitration process and leaves suspensions in the hands of Selig directly.

    It seems he is referring to this:

    ARTICLE XII—Discipline

    B. Conduct Detrimental or Prejudicial to Baseball
    Players may be disciplined for just cause for conduct that is materially
    detrimental or materially prejudicial to the best interests of Baseball
    including, but not limited to, engaging in conduct in violation of federal,
    state or local law. The Commissioner and a Club shall not discipline
    a Player for the same act or conduct under this provision. In cases
    of this type, a Club may only discipline a Player, or take other adverse
    action against him, when the Commissioner defers the disciplinary
    decision to the Club.

    I’m no lawyer, but I suspect the Players Association attorneys would be all over this. Specifically, why have a Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program if Bud can just do whatever he wants whenever he feels like it? It’s there for a reason, for issues pertaining to PEDs and other drugs. You may as well throw it in the trash if Bud can just hand down his own sentencing.

  30. bigdan22 June 9th, 2013 at 10:36 am

    Selig isn’t suspending anyone “in the best interests of the game.” Not happening.

    While it’s true it’s virtually impossible to challenge an arbitration ruling in court, the arbitration procedure is very much like a day in court. The player will be able to confront and challenge all evidence like he can in court. You saw that in the Braun matter.

    If these cases come down to the records, which basically means the arbitrators would throw out the testimony of Bosch and the players, it will be interesting to see how this plays out. What you don’t want to see is differing results on basically the same evidence. Imagine 20 cases where 10 suspensions are upheld and 10 are overturned. That type of stuff is very common in the real world of arbitrations. Arbitrators vary according to their own individual experiences and are not bound by precedent like a court. And since their decisions are non-appealable they can basically get away with anything. Not good for the game.

  31. jacksquat June 9th, 2013 at 10:38 am

    Bosch is just a drug dealer.

  32. tbone1570 June 9th, 2013 at 10:39 am

    mac,

    Thanks, that’s what I thought. I’m not sure what recourse the players would actually have against Bosch for his “cooperation” with MLB regarding PED’s they may have gotten from him.

  33. austinmac June 9th, 2013 at 10:40 am

    Jacksquat,

    I think you are likely correct. Generally, in interpreting contracts, the specific trumps the general.

  34. 86w183 June 9th, 2013 at 10:42 am

    The difference really comes down to the amount you take and the frequency with which you take PEDs and the intensity you can maintain in terms of workouts. I doubt there are a lot of steroid users who never took HGH. There probably are a lot of MLB players who have taken HGH but not taken anabolic steroids.

    Yes I have spoken to many medical professionals… Doctors, Re-hab specialists and trainers among others. It is not unethical to discuss treatments in general. I do not seek information on individual patients/clients which would be inappropriate.

    Two of the people I learn from have testified before Congress… they know their stuff.

  35. 86w183 June 9th, 2013 at 10:45 am

    Bosch probably does not have legal restrictions on sharing information, but undoubtedly his clients and he have some sort of privacy agreement. That is what will open him to civil litigation should he tell all to MLB investigators.

    I’m not sure his testimony will be fatal unless there are receipts, shipping records, phone and text records that provide some level of corroboration.

  36. austinmac June 9th, 2013 at 10:55 am

    After looking at Headley’s stats, I bet the Padres wished they had traded him last winter.

  37. tbone1570 June 9th, 2013 at 11:00 am

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

    Since we’re talking about illegal activities here, I don’t think a privacy agreement relating to these illegal activities would be enforcable.

    I agree that Bosch’s testimony and hand written notes alone would be enough to justify any suspensions. It will be the corroborating evidence and testimony of others that will be the deciding factor in suspending any players.

    They should have….he’s a good player but he’s never been THAT good before…..and his value likely won’t be that high again while he’s a Padre.

    Good win yesterday….hopefully they can steal another against Felix today

  39. jacksquat June 9th, 2013 at 11:02 am

    Today’s lineup guess:

    Gardner CF
    Cano 2B
    Teixeira 1B
    Hafner DH
    Overbay RF
    Youkilis 3B
    Ichiro LF
    Nix SS
    Stewart or Romine C

    Nix is 5 for 12 vs Felix so I think he’ll go with him over Brignac.

  40. jacksquat June 9th, 2013 at 11:04 am

    Perhaps in this park with a rhp starting, Overbay in LF and Ichiro in RF would be better.

  41. David in Cal June 9th, 2013 at 11:09 am

    I don’t trust Bosch’s testimony. Here’s why:

    A friend of mine had been CEO of a large company. He and 4 others were convicted for doing an illegal deal. Somehow the prosecution managed to get 5 separate felony convictions out of this one act.

    There was a key witness who testified that he had attended the meeting where the illegal deal was agreed. During the appeal process, my friend’s lawyer was able to prove that this key witness was actually out of the country when that meeting took place. His testimony was a complete fabrication.

    Why did this witness commit perjury? My understanding is that the prosecutors put enormous pressure on him. They threatened him with a long prison sentence unless he gave evidence against some higher-ups. The prosecutors were so eager to get high-level convictions that they forced this witness to perjure himself.

  42. Jesus Bustero June 9th, 2013 at 11:28 am

    So in this case MLB is an overly eager (and likely amateur) prosecutor so anxious to get high-level convictions of baseball players that it is careless enough to force a key witness into perjurious acts?

    Something tells me your anecdote falls far short of a precedent.

    It’s easy to hate Bud Selig, easier to underestimate MLB. They’re bigger than Arod and Braun. Rich folks have their weasel attorneys but that doesn’t mean MLB has a bunch of idiots. I’d like to see Braun get out of this one.

  43. Jesus Bustero June 9th, 2013 at 11:30 am

    Blake,

    Padres goofed. Their loss could be our win. Headley’s away splits were impressive before his breakout season. He plays excellent defense at 3B and he could really benefit hitting in Yankees Stadium in an AL offense.

    He should be Cashman’s top target.

  44. RhapsodyInBlue June 9th, 2013 at 11:32 am

    HGH was banned from baseball in 2005, Andy admitted using it in 2002, the catch was without a prescription.

  45. Jesus Bustero June 9th, 2013 at 11:35 am

    Hmmmm

    If Pettitte used HgH while it was not banned then he didn’t violate rules of baseball. If Mark McGwire stuck to Androstendione under similar circumstances, he might have been a shoe in for the HOF.

  46. Ghostwriter June 9th, 2013 at 11:51 am

    86w183 June 9th, 2013 at 9:16 am

    Great to see Andy get that milestone win. At some point baseball needs to take a really hard look at starting pitchers and Cooperstown. You can’t go by the 300-win standard with older generation (4-man rotation) pitchers and hold modern (5-man rotation) starters to that same standard.

    ==

    People keep saying that the 300-game threshold is passe because of the 5-man rotation, but there are a quite a few guys from the era that have gotten 300 wins. Three hundred is still the benchmark IMO. Of course, it isn’t or shouldn’t be the only one. Andy is over 100 games over .500 as a pitcher, and this fact alone ought to punch his (and Mussina’s) ticket to the HoF.

  47. jmills June 9th, 2013 at 11:59 am

    R.I.B., thank lil’ god / goddess ( whatever u contrive ) for Cole Porter,….just kidding, Gershwin was pretty good too! :)

    Yep. Good call.

  49. jacksquat June 9th, 2013 at 12:04 pm

    I doubt the Padres will take a low ball offer for Headley just because he hasn’t hit well for two months. I doubt they would take much less than they would have in the offseason. Headley is under their control through 2014 so they aren’t really under pressure to trade him yet.

  50. jmills June 9th, 2013 at 12:06 pm

    After yesterday, I’m all giddy; go Jays go! ( This has nothing to do with the fact Toronto has largely sucked thus far )

    It would certainly be worth a shot. That’s basically how we got Brosius, and I think that Headley is better than what he’s shown this year.

  52. RhapsodyInBlue June 9th, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    jmills,

    Actually I enjoy both Porter and Gershwin equally. But when choosing my handle the Yankees in my mind have always been a Rhapsody In Blue.

    And of course Gershwin was a NYer. :-)

  53. GregD June 9th, 2013 at 12:22 pm

    We have Adams and Youkilis for third base….if we make a trade….it will most likely be for an outfielder

    David in Cal – I believe you’re talking apples and oranges here in terms of the specifics of the case. In the case of your friend, you’re saying that they were convicted for doing an illegal deal. Bosch has not been convicted. And Bosch has written records to back up what he’s saying. Gonzalez has already been exempted because it was proven that he did buy something from Bosch, but that it was legal.

    Secondly, those prosecutors had to be dumber than dirt because Trial 101 would tell you that you check out your particulars before you put a witness on the stand. Anyone who would have a person testify to having been somewhere without checking to see where indeed the person was at that time – (with corroborating evidence) needs to have her or his license pulled!

  56. jmills June 9th, 2013 at 12:46 pm

    Trish, how the heck are you? My daughter is the most amazing person one could apply to meet :) – I guess that makes me one lucky guy. The Jays are going to hold some kind of sway,……I hope.

    Good morning fellas.
    Want your thoughts on this trade proposal.
    Hughes and joba if nec for howie kendrick.
    Angels need pitching
    Unload cano and get a stud outfielder. We cannot signhim for 6 plus. Alex was much better at that age and look at that contract now. Thoughts.

  58. SoS June 9th, 2013 at 12:51 pm

    Trade proposal.hughes and joba(if need be) for kendrick.
    Cano for an outfielder or third baseman.
