Yankees first-half awards

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jul 18, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

A few Yankees mid-season awards to kick off this final day of the All-Star break.  We’ll stick with some fairly standard categories.

Robinson CanoMVP
Robinson Cano
Hard to go wrong with the team’s best hitter and only offensive all-star. A spurt of production heading into the break has Cano’s overall numbers back up to his essentially expected level. He’s on pace for the most home runs of his career, and he’s been the only true bright spot in an otherwise bleak middle of the order.
Next three on the ballot: Mariano Rivera, Hiroki Kuroda and Brett Gardner

CY YOUNG
Hiroki Kuroda
The closer might be the sentimental pick — and no doubt, he’s been terrific — but Kuroda has been a legitimate No. 1 starter. Battling through five scoreless innings on Friday gave Kuroda, momentarily, the lowest ERA in the American League. He’s been a source of stability for a rotation that has badly needed it at times.
Next three on the ballot: Mariano Rivera, Dave Robertson, CC Sabathia

Preston ClaiborneROOKIE OF THE YEAR
Preston Claiborne
Three fairly unique candidates for this one — a corner outfielder, long reliever and middle reliever — and all three have some reason to be in the mix, but we’ll go with Claiborne who’s emerged out of relative obscurity to be a reliable sixth-inning option. Recent struggles, though, are worth keeping in mind.
Next three on the ballot: Zoilo Almonte, Adam Warren, Vidal Nuno

COMEBACK PLAYER
Mariano Rivera
Funny thing is, when I typed in this category, I immediately typed Brett Gardner as the winner. Guess I’ve come to completely forget that Rivera was hurt last season, that’s how well he’s pitched. Rivera is making it clear that announcing his retirement is his only way out of the league. Looking like he never would have pitched his way out.
Next three on the ballot: Brett Gardner, Ivan Nova, Lyle Overbay

Shawn KelleyBIGGEST SURPRISE
Shawn Kelley
The Yankees really had no spot for Abe Almonte in their minor league system, so they flipped him to Seattle in a spring trade for a largely unknown reliever who’d been designated for assignment. Kelley was a somewhat unexpected part of the Opening Day roster but has emerged as a potent strikeout pitcher and the Yankees third-best reliever.
Next three on the ballot: Preston Claiborne, Lyle Overbay, Vidal Nuno

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT
Travis Hafner
Clearly the Yankees greatest disappointment has come from a series of injuries. Compared to what the Yankees were expecting, they’ve gotten — literally — next to nothing from Mark Teixeira, Derek Jeter, Curtis Granderson and Kevin Youkilis. But of the guys who have actually had a chance to live up to expectations, Hafner stands out as a guy counted on to provide some middle-of-the-order pop but settled for a lower slugging percentage than Brett Gardner.
Next three on the ballot: CC Sabathia, Joba Chamberlain, Austin Romine *

* I’m considering Biggest Disappointment to be based on expectation and reality. These are not the worst players on the team, just the ones who were expected to be significantly better. A guy like Vernon Wells is basically playing to his numbers of the previous two seasons. Some guys have been asked to do more, but I’m not sure anyone should have expected more. And it goes without saying that the injured guys have been more disappointing, but I’m focusing on the guys who have actually played.

    Nuno is a good candidate for biggest surprise, or rookie of the year as well.

  2. MTU July 18th, 2013 at 9:07 am

    Overachiever award- Stewart.

  3. MTU July 18th, 2013 at 9:07 am

    Sorry Chad. Should have checked your list more carefully.

    I see you mentioned Nuno.

  4. MTU July 18th, 2013 at 9:08 am

    Underachiever award- Dave Adams

  5. MTU July 18th, 2013 at 9:18 am

    Guess everyone went back to bed.

    :)

  6. Yankee Trader July 18th, 2013 at 9:22 am

    MVP and CY Young as well as comeback player and biggest surprise, for what it’s worth, is the great Mariano Rivera.

    BIGGEST Disappointment, literally is Joba Chamberlain.

  7. MTU July 18th, 2013 at 9:24 am

    YT-

    Not for me. I haven’t expected much out of Joba in a long time.

  8. Yankee Trader July 18th, 2013 at 9:26 am

    MTU

    Have to go now. Hope the little mop is doing better. See you later.

  9. MTU July 18th, 2013 at 9:28 am

    Thanks YT.

    He is improving.

    Have a good day.

  10. bruceb July 18th, 2013 at 9:30 am

    BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT: Ownership and Brian Cashman for failing to see what 99% of the fans could see two or three years ago: that the team was getting older and more injury-prone, and that the farm system wasn’t strong enough to step up.

  11. blake July 18th, 2013 at 9:34 am

    Yea the biggest disappointment for me is the owner. The guys they have are trying…..they just aren’t good enough offensively and it’s not their fault

  12. MTU July 18th, 2013 at 9:34 am

    Bruce-

    I think they saw it.

  13. Tackelberry July 18th, 2013 at 9:35 am

    bruceb:

    Can add to that the FO’s refusal to be more agressive in the INternational market the last few years, not making stronger bids for guys like Cespedes, Puig, Darvish and now Gonzalez.

  14. mick July 18th, 2013 at 9:35 am

    Congrats on the baby Blake. Good Health!

  15. BIG AL July 18th, 2013 at 9:36 am

    YT -

    To me, the biggest disappointment has beed CC, pitching more like a #3 than a #1, JMHO.

    I for one never expected much of Joba to begin with.

  16. BIG AL July 18th, 2013 at 9:37 am

    Good morning Mike.

  17. BIG AL July 18th, 2013 at 9:38 am

    > been not beed, dah

  18. MTU July 18th, 2013 at 9:38 am

    Greetings Al.

    How’s Nikki doing ?

  19. BIG AL July 18th, 2013 at 9:39 am

    Mike -

    Not well, it’s been a real struggle, we’re doing all we can, thanks.

  20. blake July 18th, 2013 at 9:39 am

    Thanks mick

  21. MTU July 18th, 2013 at 9:40 am

    Sorry to hear that Al.

    I was hoping the special diet might help.

  22. Tackelberry July 18th, 2013 at 9:41 am

    Congrats on your new baby Blake! Hope mother and child are both doing well.

  23. blake July 18th, 2013 at 9:42 am

    Thanks tackle

  24. BIG AL July 18th, 2013 at 9:44 am

    Mike -

    Glad to hear your baby is doing better. When all is said and done, it’s out of my hands right now. The special diat has helped some, that’s for sure, but, will not change the final outcome.

  25. BIG AL July 18th, 2013 at 9:45 am

    diet

    It won’t be long before you’ll need a BBQ flavored teething ring. :)

  27. MTU July 18th, 2013 at 9:47 am

    Thanks Al. We’ve both been thru a lot.

    We’ve just been luckier is all.

    I’ll keep praying for you.

  28. BIG AL July 18th, 2013 at 9:47 am

    Mike -

    49 years today! And they said it wouldn’t last, lol.

  29. pat July 18th, 2013 at 9:50 am

    Blake

    Put a golf club in that kids hands instead of a bat. Talent + Sponsorships and he could buy you your own baseball team to be GM of. :wink:

    Congratulations.

  30. blake July 18th, 2013 at 9:50 am

    That’s a great idea Al

  31. MTU July 18th, 2013 at 9:51 am

    Al-

    I always knew you were a Man of great perseverance.

    May you have many more.

    :)

  32. Jesus Bustero July 18th, 2013 at 9:52 am

    You look at the headlines of Yankees rumors and you get the sense the Yankees front office is once again covering up their poop trail as they will lay a goose egg once again and get shut out of a trading deadline where it’s imperative they improve. Now if they can’t get something done, quit crying about it to us and become a SELLER. It’s not that hard. If it sucks to be a buyer and you are a fringe playoff team then SELL.

    I mean listen to this crap…

    “Yankees unhappy with market for Hughes”
    “Yankees told Michael Young not available”
    “Phillies want top prospect for Michael Young”
    “Yankees inquire on Asdrubal Cabrera but Cardinals further along”
    “Yankees told Padres consider Headley virtually untouchable”
    “The Rangers and other teams have soured on Joba”
    “Yankees could do nothing says Bob Klapish”

    Basically if you plan to do nothing then SELL

    Kuroda (rental)
    Gardner (rental next year)
    Granderson (rental)
    Hughes (rental)

    Just reload, please

  33. BIG AL July 18th, 2013 at 9:53 am

    Mike -

    Well, if we make it, next year will be our 50th anniv. and our sons have promised a big party. I hope we make it, I’d love spending some of their money for a change, lol. :)

  34. blake July 18th, 2013 at 9:54 am

    Bret,
    Same old spin as always….it’s posturing sure but as you say it’s also an attempt to temper expectations for the fan base when they sit on their hands and do nothing again

  35. MTU July 18th, 2013 at 9:54 am

    Buster-

    I have to agree. Standing still or limping along should not be an option.

    Sh*t or get off the pot.

  36. BIG AL July 18th, 2013 at 9:55 am

    Kuroda would not go to another team, and the Yankees would be nuts to even suggest it.

  37. BIG AL July 18th, 2013 at 9:56 am

    MTU -

    Those are my very sentiments!

  38. MTU July 18th, 2013 at 9:57 am

    Al-

    I think they are most peoples.

  39. Against All Odds July 18th, 2013 at 9:58 am

    Congrats Blake

  40. Tackelberry July 18th, 2013 at 9:58 am

    13 days til trade deadline. Thats alot of time for things to change. Teams are posturinng right now in order to try and get the best returns possible or give up as little as possible

  41. blake July 18th, 2013 at 9:59 am

    Thanks against

  42. MTU July 18th, 2013 at 9:59 am

    I expect the Yankees to do something.

    I just hope what they do is smart and worthwhile.

  43. ManningRules July 18th, 2013 at 10:00 am

    Congrats Blake –

    Cooking a pig today – so big day!

  44. blake July 18th, 2013 at 10:02 am

    “Congrats Blake –

    Cooking a pig today – so big day!”

    Thanks….you’re cookin one?

  45. Shame Spencer July 18th, 2013 at 10:04 am

    blake – We’ve been discussing Hughes for Olt for a while. It might not be the ideal trade but getting a cost controlled guy for a number of years that fills a position of need for 1/2 of a season of Hughes might be the best we can ask for. By all accounts Olt should be better than Adams and since we have no other depth there I’d get behind that move in a heartbeat.

  46. ManningRules July 18th, 2013 at 10:05 am

    Yeah man.

    I cook a few a year – A few years ago, when I bought my house, I built a very nice smoke house in the back of the property. I do pigs, shoulders, butts, ect.. for parties.
    NC style. The rest is garbage

  47. blake July 18th, 2013 at 10:07 am

    That’s awesome ….full pigs east NC style is the best.

  48. blake July 18th, 2013 at 10:08 am

    Shame,
    It helps both teams somewhat…..there is some risk for both teams ….it’s a deal that’s fairly realistic IMO

  49. MTU July 18th, 2013 at 10:10 am

    We do have depth there in Mustelier and Jagielo.

    I don’t help the Rangers.

    If I’m going that route I’d rather try to get Castellanos away from the Tigers, or Moustakas from KC.

    The Tigers need pen help.

    Offer them Betances, or Kelley +

    KC needs Pitching.

  50. blake July 18th, 2013 at 10:10 am

    I might do a Boston butt in honor of the baby this weekend if I can

  51. comnsnse July 18th, 2013 at 10:11 am

    Gee Chad, I say your “awards” pretty much adhere to my mid season marks which of course you “don’t believe in”! ;)

  52. blake July 18th, 2013 at 10:11 am

    “If I’m going that route I’d rather try to get Castellanos away from the Tigers, or Moustakas from KC.”

    I think the only player the yanks have that could get Castellanos is Cano

  53. ManningRules July 18th, 2013 at 10:11 am

    “That’s awesome ….full pigs east NC style is the best.”

    Absolutely. I make two gallons of BBQ sauce, cook it the full time the pig cooks. When I flip her I put about a half gallon in the cavity, cook a few more hours, and rip it up:)

  54. ManningRules July 18th, 2013 at 10:12 am

    Vinegar base. Not that garbage Midwest sweet stuff.

  55. MTU July 18th, 2013 at 10:13 am

    Blake-

    He is blocked. He isn’t worth a Cano, or anyone close to that.

    The Tigers are pretty desperate for pen help.

    We have lots of it.

  56. Jesus Bustero July 18th, 2013 at 10:14 am

    It’s simple. A front office is employed to either buy or sell. When you have a dynastic core, you hold. This team is no dynasty. So what is their plan? Is there one? This is already shaping up to be another seller’s market. So if the plan is to buy, you will have to overpay, don’t cry about the prices of other team’s players. If your plan is to sell, then you can get teams to overpay you, don’t cry about the value of your players. But here you have the Yankees front office, not knowing if should buy or sell, complaining as a potential buyer about the cost of other players while simultaneously whining as a seller about the value of our own players.

    Hilarious.

  57. Madrugador July 18th, 2013 at 10:14 am

    I think by Monday a lot of things will be different.
    Friday- Jeter plays? Continues to ride the bench? Goes back to the DL?
    Weekend series in Boston- Yankee pitching prevails? Offense continues to struggle?
    Monday-Arod returns to the lineup? Arod returns to the DL?

    Whatever happens, though the state of the team will be little changed, I am sure there will be a very different feel and motivation in the trade market.

    So Blake, with the midnight feedings, will we now see you posting in the wee hours along with Nick in SF? Never too early to get the little one interested in baseball. Children are a blessing. Much happiness to you and your family.

  59. comnsnse July 18th, 2013 at 10:15 am

    MTU, you’re actually offering an unproven minor leaguer and someone we picked up for an O.F that the writer just said “we had no room for”.

    For the best prospect in the Tiger system and one of the top 100 prospects in MLB?

    Have you spoken to Blake who was “offering” Cano for Castellanos?

    A comedy team in the making! ;)

  60. austinmac July 18th, 2013 at 10:15 am

    The Yankees haven’t done anything meaningful at the TD for years. Do we really think this is the year? Maybe we can get Berkmann back for Hughes. It will be something along that line. Then, they will say to the fans ” See, we are trying”. Or it could be worse, Murphy for Soriano.

  61. astrocityfan July 18th, 2013 at 10:15 am

    Congrats Blake! Good luck and good health to you and the little one

  62. austinmac July 18th, 2013 at 10:16 am

  64. blake July 18th, 2013 at 10:18 am

    “He is blocked. He isn’t worth a Cano, or anyone close to that.”

    He can play OF too though….Miggy can’t play 3B forever. The only reliever they might woukd deal him for woukd be DRob IMO

  65. Tackelberry July 18th, 2013 at 10:18 am

    I think Soriano is the most likely for the Yanks to acquire. Still don’t understand why they didn’t take a look at Manny!

    Boston Butt sounds awesome – slow and low, brother…

    Actually, the best tasting one I’ve ever had came from an Electric smoker (the nice ones) with nothing more than Bad Byrons Butt Rubb and a bottles of Magic Hat in the water pan..

  70. comnsnse July 18th, 2013 at 10:20 am

    MTU, I see where you had commented on Blake’s delusion, so maybe he’s excused given the late night feedings and diaper changes.

    You however will have to beef up that offer exponentially to obtain Castellanos.

    Include Hughes and Joba with Betances and give the Tigers the negotiating window with both Hughes and Joba, and maybe you get a sniff!

  71. ManningRules July 18th, 2013 at 10:21 am

    I spent my college days, and a few years after in Raleigh. I learned a lot there about the right way to cook.

    Good to see ya! Sending prayers for your pup. Meantime, this is for you: :D

  73. Hankflorida July 18th, 2013 at 10:22 am

    Why wasn’t Overbay mentioned as the biggest surprise over Kelley as he has been one of the bright spots and hasn’t been so far from Text’s numbers andante plays everyday. After the Iron Horse, the Yankees tried to get by with journeymen first basemen. In 1947, they picked up from the St. Louis Browns a good fielding first basemen in the twilight of his career, George McQuinn, who surprised us by hitting .300 and helped get the Yankees back to their championship ways. Overbay deserves to be the biggest surprise especially his home run total.

  74. comnsnse July 18th, 2013 at 10:22 am

    The Yankees would do Robertson for Castellanos in a heartbeat!

  76. ManningRules July 18th, 2013 at 10:24 am

    “The Yankees would do Robertson for Castellanos in a heartbeat!”

    hahahahaha.

    If you add every other trading piece you can think of. Which is what would have to happen when the other teams in front of NY right now learned that Castellanos is on the block.

  77. ManningRules July 18th, 2013 at 10:26 am

    The Egg is the best cooker on the planet. I saw a used Large on Craigslist – already broken in – not too long ago for 500$ I wanted it so bad..

    I do butts at 215 -225. With a mix of apple and mesquite.

    If you’ve never heard of Bad Byrons, look it up. I make my own rubs as well, but his is amazing.
    I use it on everything from steak to eggs.

  78. ConcernedCitizen July 18th, 2013 at 10:28 am

    There’s this thing called a “math trade” online — long story short, everyone puts what they’re willing to trade and what they’re willing to get in return for those trade(s), and an algorithm works to find the largest chained trade possible. I’ve often wondered what it would be like if baseball teams used this method ahead of the trade deadline. I’d imagine teams would back out once they saw the results, but it’d be an interesting experiment.

  79. Shame Spencer July 18th, 2013 at 10:29 am

    Yeah Castellanos can play the OF, so he isn’t really blocked. I think it would take Hughes+Drob+ to get him. Depending on what comes after that plus, it may or may not be worth it.

  80. comnsnse July 18th, 2013 at 10:30 am

    Hank, you’re correct about the post Gehrig years but Buddy Hasset had a decent year and Nick Etten was serviceable and I believe actually won the HR crown with 22 in 44.

    What you’re over looking however is the cast of great players the Yanks had from 39-44 led by the Jolter, Gordon tc.. Gordon would have been in the HOF much sooner if not for the war years.

  81. blake July 18th, 2013 at 10:30 am

    “If you’ve never heard of Bad Byrons, look it up. I make my own rubs as well, but his is amazing.
    I use it on everything from steak to eggs.”

    Yea I’ve seen that….,I make my own run but I suck at making sauce. I’ve tried several recipes and it just never comes out right…..I like Blues Hog Tennessee red or bone suckin sauce about as good as any store sauce

  82. Kelvin July 18th, 2013 at 10:30 am

    From what I’ve read the Yankees are actively pursuing trades… Trying for Headley and Konerko but talks have gone nowhere as of yet.. They are trying though.

  83. blake July 18th, 2013 at 10:31 am

    I love the egg so far…..I smoked the best baby backs I’ve ever tasted last week on it

  84. blake July 18th, 2013 at 10:33 am

    Re: Cano to Detroit…..just so everyone knows what I’ve actually said…..I said that if the Yankees decided to firesell ( which they won’t) ….then Id offer Cano for Castellanos and then try to sign Cano in the offseason. It’s totally hypothetical and has nearly 0% chance I happening

  85. DONNYBROOK July 18th, 2013 at 10:35 am

    If the Yanks want Headley, they are gonna have to throw Nova on the pyre.

  86. 86w183 July 18th, 2013 at 10:36 am

    Good morning folks —

    I think some of you may be seriously over-valuing Castellanos.

    He’s moved to OF this year (no clue why), reducing his value as a prospect and has not done all that well, hitting .281 / .353 / .455, which is solid, but hardly dominant.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to have him, but I don’t think he worth a MLB starting pitcher AND bulll pen help.

  87. comnsnse July 18th, 2013 at 10:36 am

    Chef Manning, what I said was the Yankees would do it in a heartbeat, meaning the Yankees would trade perhaps the best set up guy in MLB, for again a prospect, albeit a highly touted one.

    Prospects don’t always pan out do they, check Dustin Ackley in Seattle whom I would also advise the Yanks to kick the tires on,he can really hit and might be converted to the O.F. since the Mariners believe his hitting woes were the result of his concerns at 2B.

    He is presently tearing it up in 3A.

  88. DONNYBROOK July 18th, 2013 at 10:37 am

  95. Chip July 18th, 2013 at 10:46 am

    Can someone explain to me why I read last night that the Yankees, a team with Chris Stewart, Frankie Cervelli and Austin Romine are looking to use JR Murphy as trade bait for a bat?

    Murphy was always projected to hit and now that he finally is showing a glove to go with the hit tool the Yankees think that he’s the kind of player they should trade? A 22-year old catcher with a legitimate bat and glove?

  96. blake July 18th, 2013 at 10:46 am

    BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT

    I think Pronk has been a major disappointment, but I still think that Youk is the biggest disappointment, regardless of injury. They thought that they could rely on him after A-Rod was clearly out for a long stretch, and they paid him a lot of money given his current level of performance (appeared to be an overpay at the time). He has contributed little.

    I didn’t expect much from Pronk to be honest.

    Biggest surprise is probably Overbay to me since, while Kelly has been good, he has not been as important.

    Good luck down the stretch. Got two daughters… but they’re all grown up.

    I’m with Chip except to me CC is clearly the biggest disappointment of the first half. He’s hanging around the 4.00 ERA mark and doesn’t seem as competitive out there.

    I expect more from him, and less from the results of dumpster diving.

  128. jacksquat July 18th, 2013 at 11:17 am

    CC is the disappointment for me. Making $23,000,000 this year and a 4.07 ERA.

    Hafner makes only 2 mil this year. Bargain bin players that don’t work out as well as hoped aren’t what kills a team.

    The Yankees would be much more in the thick of things if CC had just done what he is supposed to do.

  131. ManningRules July 18th, 2013 at 11:19 am

    Okay –
    It’s not a truly “home made sauce” but, in a pinch, it’s a very very good sauce, quick to make, and everyone will love it. I use it when I don’t have time or money to buy all the true ingredients.
    My old neighbor in Apex NC, about a hundred year old man showed me this. It’s hard to beat.

    You’ll need one big sauce pan – preferably on an outdoor propane cooker.

    1 gallon white vinegar
    1 stick of butter
    1 container of crushed red pepper
    4 tblsp black pepper
    4 tblsp salt
    4 containers of Kraft Original (or any cheapo kind – I use Stop and Shops)
    Mustard

    Bring the vinegar to a rapid boil (again, preferably outside – it carries a harsh odor)
    Drop a half stick of butter in the boil
    Put the entire container of crushed red pepper, black pepper, and salt in the boil

    Empty all four bbq bottles into a bowl.
    Rinse each bottle with quarter bottle of water and empty in bowl
    To the sauce, add a quarter cup mustard or a tablespoon dry mustard.

    Empty contents of bowl into the boiling vinegar. Let mix come to a boil again for five minutes, then turn the heat way down. Simmer even.

    The longer you cook, the thicker it’s going to get, and hotter!
    I usually take it off the propane burner, and put the pot directly on the coals. Stir often and be careful not to burn it, but anytime after about 45 minutes of cooking, you’re free to eat.
    When it’s all done, I use the gallon vinegar bottle to store it in – just funnel it back in there.
    It’s good for months in the fridge.
    Again, you can cook it for hours and hours and hours, but just be careful. Those crushed red peppers infuse in that vinegar and it just gets tastier and tastier.
    When I do a pig, I usually split the batch in half and make one not hot and one hotter. I like it to burn and have that deep south vinegar spice to it.

    I hope you enjoy it as much as the rest of the world.:)

  132. BIG AL July 18th, 2013 at 11:20 am

    Chip -

    Let’s wait and see how the remainder of this season goes. Nova could move up to the #2 spot, but, no matter how he pitches, Girardi will most likely continue to refer to CC as the Ace of the staff. There in lies the problem with Cashman and Girardi, they position players by how they performed in the past, not in the present.

  133. Chip July 18th, 2013 at 11:20 am

    Manning – thanks for the tip.

    I do pulled pork two different ways – my current rub is a cocoa powder with cinnamon and chipotle base (sort of a Mole).

    The other is more of traditional base.

    In both cases I smoke them over a tray containing onions and bell peppers and garlic, all of which goes into the blender to help make my sauce.

  140. astrocityfan July 18th, 2013 at 11:32 am

    Manning,
    We never used mustard in my house growing up. My mom’s sauce was, a pot full of vinegar, a stick of butter and red pepper :) That recipe does look good though. thanks for sharing.

  141. blake July 18th, 2013 at 11:33 am

    1 Cup Dark Brown Sugar (loose, unpacked)
    1/2 Cup Paprika (Hungarian or McCormick’s, for best results) 2-1/2 TBS Coarse (Salad Grind) Black Pepper
    1-1/2 tsp Chili Powder (basic commercial brand like McCormick’s) 1-1/2 TBS Garlic Powder
    1-1/2 TBS Onion Powder
    1 tsp Cayenne (Red Pepper)
    2 TBS Kosher Salt

    That’s the rub I use on ribs…..Tom posted one that’s really good too….this one is a lkte sweeter.

  142. ManningRules July 18th, 2013 at 11:33 am

    Yeah, I don’t actually put anything other than salt, pepper, and butter on the meat before I smoke it. I want to taste the pork.

    On shoulders or buts, I always smoke fat cap up, and use a quality wood in my fire box.

    After, I always mix with the sauce in a bowl. I like the heat of the pork off the coals, mixed with the chill of the BBQ sauce – some slaw, a hard roll, and cold beer and we have a party, brother.

    When I make my own rubs, or Byrons, I very lightly will do it, but not too much.

    Ribs, a total different story – I load them up, two or three times, the apply the sauce in the last ten minutes after I wrap them.

  143. ManningRules July 18th, 2013 at 11:35 am

    “Manning,
    We never used mustard in my house growing up. My mom’s sauce was, a pot full of vinegar, a stick of butter and red pepper :) That recipe does look good though. thanks for sharing.”

    Mine too. The mustard make a tang on the back of the bite – you can’t really taste it, but you can…not sure that makes sense, but you certainly can make it without it..

  144. Shame Spencer July 18th, 2013 at 11:36 am

    I still think Melky would have been helpful at that price.. right now Ichiro is outperforming him by a hair, but I’d be curious to check out how they match up against each other by the end of the season.

  145. ManningRules July 18th, 2013 at 11:37 am

    Blake – thats a nice rub.

    I have a few that I’ll post later on if anyone is interested. Ribs are all about the cook – not the sauce.

    Ill rub, let sit overnight. Cook half way, rub again, cook rest of way, take off, put in alum foil boat with some squeeze butter on them. Once butter melts (10 mins) I slather the above sauce on them and let them crust. Serve with a small bowl of the sauce for dipping and serve with same above mentioned cold beer.

  146. MTU July 18th, 2013 at 11:38 am

    Do you guys accept take-out orders ?

  147. ManningRules July 18th, 2013 at 11:39 am

    I usually first rub with a spice, second rub with a sweet, and sauce with a vinegar base.

    I learned that from Minnies BBQ shack in just outside of Greenville NC. They’re delicious that way, but a lot of work.

  148. ManningRules July 18th, 2013 at 11:40 am

    “Ill rub, let sit overnight. Cook half way, rub again, cook rest of way, take off, put in alum foil boat with some squeeze butter on them”

    Yea I rub them, let sit….smoke about 2 hrs then wrap them in foil with some brown sugar, honey and squeeze butter ….about another hour wrapped….then unwrap them for another hr or 2…..I like a nice bark and like my ribs a little doner than most probably so sometimes I leave them on a little longer……I also sauce about 15 minutes before I pull them and rest

  153. ManningRules July 18th, 2013 at 11:46 am

    Oh, I’m far from a pro, but everyone eats, and everyone goes home full bellied and happy.

    I learn something new everytime. Do yourself a favor though, and spend the 300$ in materials and build yourself a good smoker. My whole unit cost me about 400$ (I bought steel doors) in cinderblock, firebrick, and metal grates.

    I went above and put a nice facing stone on mine so it’s not an ugly block in my yard, but it’s the best investment I’ve ever made.

    There are some very good plans online.

    Block is always better than steel, but I have a friend who smokes some of the most delicious meat you’ve ever tasted in an old cut in half oil tank with a 55gal drum welded to the back of it for fire..

  154. G. Love July 18th, 2013 at 11:46 am

    I was really disappointed when a championship BBQ guy gave me his recipe for rub and I learned that Accent was really MSG.

    I used it now knowing what Accent was (just bought it at the store) and people raved about my ribs, but a friend of mine who is sensitive to MSG got sick.

    I did the rub with and without Accent and it wasn’t as good without it.

    I’m always looking for good rubs w/o Accent/MSG in them.

    blake and Manning,
    All this BBQ talk is making me drool. The great thing about BBQ is that there are 100′s of ways to do it. It’s an individual thing. For instance, I keep the temp lower than you guys, between 180 and 190, and smoke longer and slower, what ever I’m cooking. I like apple or pear wood, but I have a big old hickory tree that drops a limb every once in a while That works for me, too. It looks like some St. Louis ribs this weekend, because of all the talk!

    I think if I were picking places to live – Central Idaho – the McCall region would be tops. Followed by Montana – closely.

    I’m a big woods kind of guy. My parents joint just depresses me.

    Mister Tom-

    Don’t forget who you friends are.

    I lived in Glacier Montana for 6 weeks once and I could stay there forever….my wife…. Not so much

  175. MTU July 18th, 2013 at 12:07 pm

    Manning-

    You probably hunted up north ?

    Southern Utah is much more diverse than either northern Utah or Colorado.

    Sounds like Alpine settings.

    We have 12,000 footers down this way too.

    Our diversity of environments is what make this place so special.

    Anyway, good luck with your smoking.

    Blake aka Chubby Checkers, just breturned to read your latest twist of the “cano for Castellanos” deal which in your unofficial GM capacity you are advocating.

    Cano to Dertoit for one prospect,check!

    Cano’s agent and he however receive a wink and a nod that the Yankees intend to resign him.

    1- one prospect would never be enough even if Detroit is only looking for a rental to put them over the hump and bring Illitch his WS champs.

    2-How does one presume that someone doesn’t out bid the Yanks for Cano’s services.

    3-If that were to happen and the Yanks only received one prospect, what do you think the fan base et al would think? They would be trading their only star player for one prospect with the big may be of resigning him!

    4-Finally, not withstanding the Lee deal, one would have to know all the details of why neither the Mariners nor the Rangers did not keep him.
    Perhaps money entered into the thinking?

    5- Regardless of any precedent anyone believes about the Lee situation. I maintain that the Commissioner and MLB would look at it as a collusive effort.

    6- All of this premised on Arod, Jeter, Granderson having good years and a suddenly suspect pitching staff!

    7- Repeat #3 and open the 2014 season with R.Adams at second! That will really insure the attendance numbers and the YES fan base not even taking into account the TV sponsors etc.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
