Postgame notes: “You’re going to lose some tough games”

CC Sabathia

Off the mound, through the infield and into the Yankees dugout, CC Sabathia was screaming. Then he flung his glove against the wall. And somewhere in that outburst of overwhelming emotion … nothing else happened. Just another moment of frustration in this Yankees season of disappointment.

“I feel like I’m wasting starts,” Sabathia said. “I’m feeling great and throwing the ball good. I’ve just not been able to put together a whole start. It’s just frustrating.”

The slider to Nate McLouth was a bad pitch. The changeup to Manny Machado might not have been quite as bad — “You could tell he was sitting on it the whole time,” Chris Stewart said — but it was certainly another mistake. Those were really the only hard-hit balls Sabathia allowed, but these days, two big hits mean trouble. Sabathia was given a 3-0 lead, and it’s hard to ask much more of this offense. He couldn’t hold it.

But it’s also hard to overlook the fact the Yankees scattered four hits, all singles, through the final six innings. The offense came roaring out of the gate, then went down with a whimper. And David Adams, playing first base to add another right-handed bat against a lefty, made a costly mistake when he misread a slow roller, opening the door to a three-run sixth.

A miscue of inexperience by an out-of-position rookie. An offense that couldn’t maintain momentum. Two mistake pitches by a guy who had a no-hitter through five. The margin for error is very thin these days, and so frustration can boil over at any moment. It did tonight.

“We talked about, this is going to be a year where pitching is going to be extremely important,” Joe Girardi said. “It is. You can’t expect your ace to go throw a shutout every time. At times we have to score some runs. … We’ve probably been a part of some (loses) that were worse, I’m sure. During the course of 162 games, you’re going to lose some tough games, but (Sabathia’s) stuff was really good tonight and he was rolling along.”

Alberto Gonzales• Sabathia blamed himself in every which way during a postgame interview, but so did Adams. “As soon as I’m running to the ball, I’m like, oh, I messed up,” he said. “… Honestly, any situation like that, there’s no one else to get to the bag. Cano’s up the middle, CC, his job is to go get the ball. There’s no one else to be on the bag. I’ve got to get to the bag.”

• Girardi did his best to back his rookie infielder. “It’s a tough read,” Girardi said. “You see the ball hit that way. He’s coming off the bag. In hindsight he probably would have liked to have stayed there, but it’s a ground ball and he kind of went after it. … Could have been (lack of experience), but I’m not so sure most first basemen aren’t going to go after it.”

• The Yankees actually hit T.J. McFarland pretty well. Vernon Wells had an RBI single; Adams drew a walk; Robinson Cano had a couple of hits; Brett Gardner started the game with his double. The rest of the game: Three singles, each in a different inning. Kevin Gausman went 4.1 scoreless. “We had some opportunities and weren’t able to do it,” Girardi said. “Gausman came in and threw the ball extremely well. You can tell the kid is extremely talented. But we had some early opportunities. I think we had seven or eight hits in the first three innings and were only able to get three runs.”

• What made Sabathia so good early? “I thought he mixed his pitches,” Girardi said. “I thought he was locating. He gave up two hard-hit balls and gave up two runs in that inning. That’s the tough part about it. It’s different if he gives up four or five hard-hit balls, but he gave up two, and some really well-placed balls and they did it at the right time and it worked out for them.”

• Stewart on the pitch to Machado: “I wanted it down a little more, but even if it was down, I don’t know if it would have made much of a difference. You could tell he was sitting on it the whole time. He let the fastballs inside go, not even offering at them. He made a good decision and was able to hit it.”

• Stewart on the home run pitch to McLouth: “The slider didn’t really slide all that much. He kind of left it over the plate. He’s a decent breaking ball hitter, he was able to get the barrel on the ball and hit one out.”

Ichiro Suzuki• McLouth’s homer was his first since his walkoff against the Yankees on May 21.

• Cano went 3-for-4 and is now a .362 hitter in 70 career games at Camden Yards. He also passed Frank Crosetti for 19th place on the Yankees all-time hits list. He now has 1,543.

• This was Sabathia’s 400th career start. He passed Jack Chesbro for 14th place on the Yankees all-time strikeouts list. He has 918 Ks as a Yankee.

• Random fact from the Orioles: This was Gausman’s first big league win, and it came in a game started by McFarland. On June 13, McFarland got his first big league win in a game started by Gausman. So, you know, there’s that. … Also, Manny Machado has 37 doubles, which is the second-most through the end of June since 1921 (Edgar Martinez had 39 in 1996). Obviously Machado has a couple of games to get there.

• Final word goes to Sabathia: “It’s super frustrating. We’ve been battling and scuffling all year, dealing with injuries and everything. For us to come out here and put up three against a tough team and not be able to hold it late in the game is extremely frustrating. I have to get better. … Like I said, not being able to hold the lead. Then you’re ultimately giving up the lead and giving up the game. It’s frustrating. I try not to show my emotions too much, but it happens.”

    Anyone else tired of hearing CC repeatedly say he’s got to get better?

    What are you waiting for, CC?

  2. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 28th, 2013 at 11:55 pm

    Chad, could you please suggest to Joe that he groom someone to be a Ramiro Mendoza type in the bullpen and that he start pulling his starters and using that person as a middle reliever on a consistent basis? Then he’ll keep their arms fresher, save the relief in the process, and win more games.

    Please report back after you do it. I have a great baseball mind, so I thought I’d share that thought with you. However, I am happy to have you grab credit for it.

    :D

    Forget about Granderson, Jeter and Arod coming back. This team will be out of the race before they even come back. A lot of guys are hurt I get it but these guys don’t even look like they are trying hard for 27 outs everyday. As soon as CC gave up that homerun everyone knew the game was over. CC is absolutely killing them.

    Before the All Star break, the Yankees have five more games with the O’s, seven with the Twins and four with the Royals. They have to win at least ten of these games in order to hold the fort before some of the injured played like Nunez and Musty get back to replace Adams and Gonzales and maybe make a deal for some right handed punch at first so they can continue to stay in the race till Jeter and Granderson come back. The way they are going now they may end up losing ten of the next sixteen games against these three teams who in previous years were money in the bank for wins and blow the season at the half way point. These sixteen games are at a critical point for this season, and the cavalry of replacements are no where in sight.

    I will be at rapt attention tomorrow to see what moves Cashman/Girardi et al have afoot. I’m convinced that tonight will have convinced them that it’s time to do something.

    Stay tuned.

    Hope we have a 4 o’clock or 7 o’clock game tomorrow since I have an anniversary party that goes noon to 4!

    Night all.

    :)

    again, little things needs to be done right for this team. Even though it did not hurt them, nix again failed to move the runners in the 1st inning. I was not able to follow the whole game but there are errors made and with the postgame report, a play that adams should have made. Now that gonzalez made an error as a 3b, can now we play nix as a 3b and gonzalez as a ss. Error or not, you can not waste a 3 run lead on this team.

  6. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 29th, 2013 at 12:19 am

    jerkface – I just got an email telling me that you are poking fun at me elsewhere on the internet. I don’t believe you would do that. If I’m wrong I misjudged you.

  7. Jerkface June 29th, 2013 at 12:25 am

    I am quoting you on twitter, yes.

  8. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 29th, 2013 at 12:32 am

    Oh. Well you apparently see that as one way to attract attention to your account I guess.

    I think it’s pretty sad.

    But whatever.

    • Stewart on the pitch to Machado: “I wanted it down a little more, but even if it was down, I don’t know if it would have made much of a difference. You could tell he was sitting on it the whole time

    —–

    I’m a bit simpleminded sometimes but if you know he’s sitting on it, why call for it?

  10. Locke June 29th, 2013 at 12:49 am

    What’s your twitter handle jerkface?

  11. chicken_stanley June 29th, 2013 at 12:50 am

    Just for the record, I agree with Trisha AND JF… 1st base is the easiest position to play at an acceptable level so you generally look for big offensive numbers. BUT, a superior 1st baseman improves the defense of the entire infield tremendously (which in my opinion isn’t able to be measured accurately by any sabermatrician).

    I guess, if it comes down to it, I prefer offense at 1st. The importance of defensive prowess at 1st, however, should not be underestimated.

  12. I Am Winning June 29th, 2013 at 12:54 am

    Niblick,

    Better than Hughes’ attitude of “I threw the ball great and Rey just hit it.” CC is right, he needs to pitch better. The whole teams needs to pitch or hit better.

    Kuroda is having a great season.

    Who else is having a career year, or even a great year numbers wise? Literally nobody.

    Thanks. I never heard it but I admit I don’t listen to every interview or read every postgame report.

  18. Run it Out June 29th, 2013 at 1:08 am

    Today will be a better day. Go Phelpsie. Go Yankees.

  19. J. Alfred Prufrock June 29th, 2013 at 1:12 am

    RIO,

    I should rephrase that I certainly did not hear that and that I cannot imagine Hughes choosing those words. So technically, I suppose it’s possible, but I’m dubious.

    My guess: a willful mischaracterization.

  20. J. Alfred Prufrock June 29th, 2013 at 1:14 am

    So…..Prince Fielder or Lyle Overbay….let me think about this…

  21. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2013 at 1:19 am

    Nicholas Flammia ?@nflammia 13m
    #Yankees SS @EduardoNunez15 looked great in his 2nd rehab start. 1-for-1 with a single, a walk and a stolen base for the @TampaYankees.
    ___
    It’d be great to get Nuney back. Or anyone else for that matter…

    In spite of the loss and the changeup that Machado sat on and the slider than didn’t slide, have to be happy to see C. pitch so well. Too bad he made a couple of mistakes, but velo on 4-seamer is sitting at almost 93, and location was good all night, so there is that. Important for the war, in spite of the lost battle. Too bad we still have no O.

    As for the 1B discussion, 1B is an O first position; sure, if you can get plus D there as well, that’s great, but you aren’t going to choose D over O there, like ever.

    Hughes isn’t an excuse maker.

  22. yankeefeminista June 29th, 2013 at 1:21 am

    Think Miggy would prefer Prince…

    And C.’s right, he has to be better and win that game, but still much better stuff, location, velo.

  24. Pat M. June 29th, 2013 at 1:39 am

    Well that’s good news Jerkface…. Come September I’ll be starting up a Baseball 101 & 101 academey with seminar classes and I think you and some of your tweeter groupies nons could be a great case study …..after 4 Weeks there’ll be an intermural game amongst the groups, You’re invitiyed Face as you’re in the most need for some real game on the field experience …..I get The Cup and blake to participate with the program ……Then at the end of 4 weeks we’ll play a game comprised of The Jerkface’s vs the old has been’s who played the game at a very high level at one time.. Time to pass along that wisedom along , don’t you tin k Jerkface ??????

  25. Locke June 29th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    Anybody heard anything about possibly promoting Addison Maruszak?

    He’s a RHB that plays SS/OF for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. His slash line is .269 .357 .375 – not an offensive powerhouse, but maybe an improvement over some of what we’ve got.

    We could demote Adams or DFA Gonzales and move Nix to 3rd.

  26. Rich in NJ June 29th, 2013 at 1:51 am

    Adams is starting to walk; I would not demote him.

  27. Jerkface June 29th, 2013 at 1:55 am

    Pat m,

    If you think teams go D first or should go D first at 1B then I can see why you never made it :)

  28. Jerkface June 29th, 2013 at 2:01 am

    I am flattered by your offer to teach you baseball though I regretfully must pass.

  29. Pat M. June 29th, 2013 at 2:07 am

    Face,,,,I just think it would be cool to meet a team of guys who play ball and worship at the altar of Jerkface…..Then we can play a little schooling ball, I have to think my guys are 30 years older , As for the firstbase topic, the # 3 position has to account for 180 runs at the least *( scored and driven in )……September I’ll be in NYC for round II of the NYC Stickball Championship 50 and older flight

  30. Jerkface June 29th, 2013 at 2:10 am

    No one worships at my altar, though I find it funny that you think people should worship you because you failed at becoming a baseball player. Your continued attempts to try and snatch some physical victory from continuous arguments you can’t win is amusing, though much more so when you’re zonked out on the percocets. I also find it funny that you technically agree with me about first base but oh no its jerkface vs trisha pat m better swoop in to try and bully who he perceives as a nerd! Stick to stickball :)

  31. Rich in NJ June 29th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    The problem with this team is that have so many below average player over 30 that are never going to get better: Stew, Nix, the AG, Wells, Overbay, even Hafner.

    Yet people focus on Adams. If wasn’t too long ago that they said Gardner was a 4th OF. D

    Development can be ugly and uneven, and it can take time. The failure to develop is why the Yankees are in this mess. When their better players get hurt, they have mediocre or worse veterans to fill in instead of a mL pipeline.

    They are still living of their great April, but obviously that was a mirage.

    And yes, if 1B defense was so important, Doug M to Z would be in the HoF.

    It has always been an offensive position, and always will be on teams that win.

  32. Pat M. June 29th, 2013 at 2:20 am

    Prince Valliant at your service !!!! We ( infielders ) thought that we had a far more difficult assisgnment when compared to the stretch dudes who played with one foot on the bag. However they had to scoop our occasional crap throws, they had to deal with the least athletic guy on the field ( the pitcher ) and the whole hold on a runner is an artforf. They seldom need to throw, pop-ups are cans of corn for them for the most part. But to find a real good one who can stick , well now that’s tough……And Face, my evening meds ( percocets ) well they’re coming on , so think it over for a friendly meeting come September. I think we’re playing in Harlem off of Park Ave

  33. Jerkface June 29th, 2013 at 2:26 am

    There is no doubt technique and skill which needs to be utilized at first base. That doesn’t change the fact that every other position on the diamond requires as much skill and technique and also more emphasis on physical talent. You need footwork every where, for proper positioning around all the bags and for throwing the ball. You need strong arms for all the other positions, or accurate throwing. You need range. At first you can hide a bad body guy. And it ALSO doesnt change the fact that every team in baseball for most of the history of baseball looks for offense first there. Two guys with similar offense? Yea take the better defender. But you’re not picking a .750 OPS guy at first who can really ‘pick it’ when you have an .850 guy that may be worse on defender available.

  34. Pat M. June 29th, 2013 at 2:35 am

    I’m not disagreeing with you on this issue at all Face. As for the rest you posted about footwork and the other high-end skills , no doubt. I played short and that meant in my find I could play any of the 6 positions at an average level.. Pitching and catching are art forms and require special skills and mentality

  35. tucker June 29th, 2013 at 2:51 am

    Pickin machine … The bottom line

  36. tucker June 29th, 2013 at 3:01 am

    The bottom line is not Adams defense. He is just unfamiliar with the position. He does not know positioning — where he’s supposed to be on a bunt rotation, and perhaps to a lesser extent, where to position himself for the cut off throw from the outfield. He has the physical skills to play the position, just not the reps or the experience.

    But Adams really does not have a corner infielder’s bat. I have no doubt he’s a better hitter than he has shown the past few weeks, but he is a high-average hitter with some gap power. Ideally, you would like more HRs and extra-base hits from your corner infielder.

    The problem with the Yankees right now is they really do not have any other options. That is why they are carrying an extra pitcher. Nobody at AAA (who is currently healthy) can help the team.

    It is both a short-term failure of Cashman’s one-player-at-a-time offseason approach that allowed guys like Eric Chavez to sign elsewhere. It’s also a long-term failure of building a robust player-development system that produces MLB-ready talent. And when the system does produce guys who may be able to help at the MLB level (Dickerson or Justin Maxwell), there is no commitment to finding places on the roster for these young players.

  37. theREALkevin June 29th, 2013 at 3:38 am

    I want to play in the game :)

    And by the way are we arguing about what is more important at first base, offense or defense? Seriously?

  38. GregD June 29th, 2013 at 6:50 am

    Once again, the sun rises this morning despite a tough loss last night :)

  39. Nick in SF June 29th, 2013 at 7:15 am

    I can’t confirm that. :mad:

  40. GregD June 29th, 2013 at 7:26 am

    maybe in a few hours

  41. blake June 29th, 2013 at 7:40 am

    It’s really cloudy here….I can tell if the sun is up or not.

    If the Yankees score 3 runs they have to win that game…..that’s just the facts. The offense is beyond terrible so when they score 3 the pitching has to make that hold up. CC pitched well enough to win with a normal offense….. He didnt pitch well enough to win with this offense so they lost.

    They yanks either have to pitch lights out or get more offense…..or the downward spiral is coming I’m afraid. The pitching masked a lot of problems early….now it’s starting to regress a bit and it’s all exposed

  42. GregD June 29th, 2013 at 7:44 am

    Blake—-the pitching has to be perfect or near perfect…….it has been frustrating to watch

    Yea…it was somewhat predictable though. April seems like a mirage now more than anything. Amazingly they still in the race only 2 back from the wild card. It’s time for Cashman to make a move if he’s going to because it could be over by the trade deadline…..the yanks are in the race now…..another bad week or 2 could put them out of it. The division is already getting away…..

  44. TheStraw June 29th, 2013 at 7:58 am

    Yanks reportedly interested in Michael Young, according to the Post.

    He has a friendly contract and his bat is still good. Can play first and third. Bring him in. ( he certainly won’t lower the average age, though).

  45. blake June 29th, 2013 at 7:59 am

    Young wont fix anything…

  46. TheStraw June 29th, 2013 at 8:02 am

    Not in the long term, it’s true.

    It’s time to part with some pitching prospects to get a good young positional player.

  47. Frankg June 29th, 2013 at 8:05 am

    One of the rules of good managing is that you don’t play a rookie battling confidence problems out of position where he can embarrass himself and shake his confidence more.

  48. blake June 29th, 2013 at 8:07 am

    I’m not sure they can even get enough offense to fix it

  49. Tar June 29th, 2013 at 8:15 am

    “One of the rules of good managing is that you don’t play a rookie battling confidence problems out of position where he can embarrass himself and shake his confidence more.”

    Adams is a 2b…no? Joe has his hands tied this year. And Adams bat is coming around.

    I think Joe does an ok job.One thing I hate that he does is he will almost always go with a veteran with a pulse over a rookie. For me it’s nice to see him try something different.

    BTW nobody mentions Joe’s platoon at 1B last night went 2-3 with a BB…not bad.

  50. Tar June 29th, 2013 at 8:18 am

    And have you checked Overbay’s numbers vs LH pitching lately… awful.

    And there really is no back-up 1B on the roster.

    “They always are…..he can’t hits lefties at all….”

    As bad as Admas has been, his numbers vs LH pitchers are better than Overbay. I can’t blame Joe for trying anything to gain some O. There just isn’t a lot of options for him.

  55. Keith--PA....no longer FL June 29th, 2013 at 8:30 am

    Do the Yankees beat the Tigers in the playoffs this year if they meet……NO…..therefore you trade players, ie Hughes, Chamberlain, heal injuries, and develop young players for the future and see what you have going forward—-Pineda, Almonte, hmmmm can’t think of anyone else…..that’s not good….we need a rebuilding year or 2….better to rebuild/reload than make the playoffs and lose…..

  56. MTU June 29th, 2013 at 8:41 am

    Good morning.

    What can anybody say that hasn’t been said 100 different ways by now.

    Blake hit the nail on the head.

    There is very little margin for error w this O.

    :(

  57. Tar June 29th, 2013 at 8:41 am

    “better to rebuild/reload than make the playoffs and lose…..”

    I agree, but I think we are probably in the minority. They have no chance in the post- season currently. things will get better when certain players get back, how much better is the question?

    So I guess they can’t be sellers until they see what they really have. ButI hope they have a firm deadline and plan in the place if things don’t go well.

  58. MTU June 29th, 2013 at 8:45 am

    Tar-

    I doubt they do.

  59. blake June 29th, 2013 at 8:49 am

    I expect them to do nothing then blame 2013 on injuries and probably do nothing in the winter either

  60. luis June 29th, 2013 at 8:50 am

    Good morning everyone,

    Another tough loss…. And Blake is right, this offense is at least 3 batters short not including those coming from the DL.

    Tar,

    You bet we are in the minority but that doesn’t mean it isn’t the right path, it’s just the hard one… Another thing is that a rebuild should be done by new blood.

  61. luis June 29th, 2013 at 8:51 am

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

    If they miss the PS, I don’t think they will stay pat…. And this thought scares me like nothing else

  62. pkyankfan69 June 29th, 2013 at 8:51 am

    Yanks have a month to further analyze this sinking ship.

    If towards the end of July we are still on the same trajectory (which seems likely) the Yankees need to do the right thing for the future of the organization and have a major sell off.

    Cano – Kuroda – Granderson – Hughes – Joba – Logan — Should all be dealt unless the Yanks feel they can get more value with the sandwich pick they would potentially receive.

    Hell, I’d even ask Andy if he wants to chase one last WS with a contender (obviously that would be Andy’s call)… I’m sure a contender wouldn’t mind heading into the playoffs with AP as their #3/#4.

    Can’t waste a golden opportunity to build for the future.

    Blake-

    The injuries were a significant factor.

    But the age-related risk was there all along.

    That said, they were incredibly unlucky w Grandy, Cervelli, and Nunez.

    I expect if they are still within striking distance of a playoff berth at or near the TD they will make a move or two.

    Question is, “Will they be ?”.

    Another thing…. having a couple of bad seasons wouldn’t be the end of the world and it would be a blessing since we would be better positioned in the draft and in the IFA market

    If they miss the PS, I don’t think they will stay pat…. And this thought scares me like nothing else”

    They have a built in excuse though with the injuries. I fully expect therm to give Cano a bad contract then bring back the same bunch next year with a fresh crop of re treads and the payroll under 189

    Blake-

    I think Hal has always been hellbent on achieveing 189 despite his protestaions to the contrary.

    So yeah the injuries provide an excuse if he wants to use it.

    If revenues, etc. are down and the Yankees go dark in Oct. I wonder.

    One thing these guys understand is the bottom line.

    ;)

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

    Blake… I expect them to give Cano a bad contract regardless of this season… They don’t seem to learn… But I expect them to empty the farm for another quick fix… So we will end up even worse in the end… I just hope that they don’t break the bank for FA, that move could be very risky for the long term financial health of the team.

    The future is scary if this happens.
