Jeter placed on DL; Lillibridge called up

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jul 19, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Apparently one week off wasn’t long enough.

The Yankees have placed Derek Jeter on the 15-day disabled list with a Grade 1 right quad strain. The move is retroactive to July 12, meaning Jeter can be reactivated in a week.

To fill his roster sport, the Yankees have called up utility man Brent Lillibridge from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. They’ll have to make a 40-man move as well, but that hasn’t been announced yet.

    So EVERY Yankee non-pitcher that has come off the DL has returned to it a short time later except Nunez? Good luck next week A-Rod! I have a feeling you will need it.

  2. Rich in NJ July 19th, 2013 at 10:13 am

    That isn’t good, although I expected it.

    They activated him for four games, three of which were against the Twins, rather than taking advantage of the full AS break.

    They need new decision-makers.

  3. blake July 19th, 2013 at 10:13 am

    smart move IMO….

  4. Shame Spencer July 19th, 2013 at 10:14 am

    F**k.

    I accidentally posted 3 threads back, but I believe randy can come back in just a couple weeks..

    I just looked at the 40 man roster. Not many moves to make and Alex needs to be brought off the 60 day DL next week too.

    My guess would be: Neal and Alberto Gonzalez are released. Can’t see many other options.

  6. MTU July 19th, 2013 at 10:16 am

    Smart move but that hurts in more ways than the literal one.

    Derek’s bat was needed badly.

    Got to get that quad 100% this time.

    Bye bye Gonzales.

  7. 86w183 July 19th, 2013 at 10:17 am

    right thing to do.

    I’d DFA Alberto Gonzalez

    I’d also call up Ruiz and send Warren to Scranton and let him start.

  8. Niblick July 19th, 2013 at 10:17 am

    More idiocy from the medical/training “brain trust”. This team doesn’t seem to have competent management at any level.

  9. MTU July 19th, 2013 at 10:18 am

    I’d cut Hafner too.

  10. ac1 July 19th, 2013 at 10:18 am

    I don’t think it would have mattered.
    He would have been running the same no matter when he returned and mentally favoring the ankle, thus leading to the quad injury. I don’t think another week would have mattered. if he reinjured his ankle, I’d say maybe. But he could have just as easily injured himself running in AAA.

    They have bad decision makers but I don’t blame the Yankees for this.

  11. 86w183 July 19th, 2013 at 10:18 am

    They could put Corbin Joseph on the 60-man. He’s out for the year.

  12. Rich in NJ July 19th, 2013 at 10:19 am

    They should bring Adams back up too and have him, not Cruz, share time with A-Rod.

  13. blake July 19th, 2013 at 10:19 am

    “More idiocy from the medical/training “brain trust”. This team doesn’t seem to have competent management at any level.”

    I think they know more about the situation than you do

  14. blake July 19th, 2013 at 10:19 am

    they should sell…..but will buy somebody old and make a go at it.

  15. ac1 July 19th, 2013 at 10:20 am

    We do need a power righty NOW.
    Lester and Doubront are going to kill us this weekend.

  16. Rich in NJ July 19th, 2013 at 10:20 am

    He hadn’t played a day game after a night game. He’s virtually 40. Taking the extra time seems to be a no-brainer.

  17. MTU July 19th, 2013 at 10:20 am

    The Yankees do a lot of things based on expediency.

    Patience is rarely their strong suit.

    I do think they need to take a look at who is advising them about the health of their injured players.

  18. mnmboys July 19th, 2013 at 10:20 am

    Time for Nunez to step up or pack his bags.

  19. ac1 July 19th, 2013 at 10:20 am

    Didn’t realize CoJo was out for the year.
    Yikes, bad year to be a Yankee!

  20. MTU July 19th, 2013 at 10:21 am

    No they shouldn’t Rich.

    It’s Musty’s turn.

    Adams has had his shot for now. He flopped badly.

  21. mnmboys July 19th, 2013 at 10:21 am

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see lillibridge right in the lineup tonight. 3 run HR last night and batting about about .330 in SWB. Former Red Sox player too. Hasn’t batted his weight in majors though.

  22. Rich in NJ July 19th, 2013 at 10:23 am

    MTU

    Can Musty actually play 3B well enough at the ML level? The reports I have seen are mixed at best.

  23. MTU July 19th, 2013 at 10:23 am

    Might catch some lightning in a bottle w Lillibridge.

  24. Madrugador July 19th, 2013 at 10:23 am

    I have to agree that this may have happened while Jeter was rehabbing at AAA so that while the fact that it did happen is frustrating, I am not sure it was avoidable. I kind of doubt that Jeter will be back in a week though.
    I do like the idea of getting rid of Hafner. There is nothing he could do that would make me want to keep him around next year. Clear out the dead wood and let’s see what someone else can do so at least we learn something about what we’ve got.

  25. MTU July 19th, 2013 at 10:25 am

    Rich-

    Considering his bat yes. He will be at least avg.

    And he’s way more versatile than Adams.

    He’s earned a chance. Eons ago. Only his bad luck prevented it.

    Time to change all that.

  26. Rich in NJ July 19th, 2013 at 10:26 am

    Bring him up then, MTU. Anything but the mess that this franchise has become.

  27. Doreen July 19th, 2013 at 10:26 am

    Derek Jeter himself said that he didn’t push it in rehab games. Given that, there is no way to say ith Bsolute certainty that 4 more games would have made a difference. And a 4 day layoff.

    Having him play a day game after a night game would have been more idle, but if the man was not going to risk getting injured in a rehab game, you would never have n accurate indication of his readiness.

    Same with AROD.

    And you can have people play a gazillion rehab games and still get hurt.

  28. MTU July 19th, 2013 at 10:27 am

    A-Rod can spend a lot of time DH’ing and Musty can cover 3rd.

    or Lillibridge.

  29. Doreen July 19th, 2013 at 10:27 am

    More ideal, not more idle.

  31. blake July 19th, 2013 at 10:27 am

    This next stretch of games is gonna be tough and could decide the season to be honest…..they have the Red Sox, Rangers, and Rays …..if they survive this stretch or make up ground then possibly they can make a run with an addition or two……if they take it on the chin over the next week then they could be out of it by the deadline.

  32. Locke July 19th, 2013 at 10:27 am

    I don’t like playing “monday morning quarterback” and judging all these decisions in hindsight, but now Jeter (twice!), Tex and Youk have all been brought back too soon.

    The Yankees desperately need RHB but not at the risk of causing ANOTHER injury. Some have said “well the FO knows more then us”, obviously they have more information, but if you’re decisions are consistently wrong in respect to the rehab process then you’ve got to change your approach.

    Leave Granderson, ARod, Jeter, et al. on the DL and let them complete their entire rehab before bringing them back too soon. We don’t need them playing at 100%, but they need to be fully recovered from the injury that got them on the DL in the first place.

  33. Niblick July 19th, 2013 at 10:28 am

    Blake – they may know more, but they’re not doing much with their knowledge, other than making one bad decision after another.

  34. Wave Your Hat July 19th, 2013 at 10:28 am

    The extra issue with the quad strain is that it will prevent him from working out at SS. A friend of mine who saw DJ play at Scranton said he thought that DJ did not look ready to play the position. That’s a significant issue IMO.

  35. Jerkface July 19th, 2013 at 10:29 am

    Doreen,

    We can never know what would have happened if the Yankees simply waited, but by their own admission they have rushed back players from the DL. So even if we can’t know that, I think we can say their decision was the wrong one.

  36. Locke July 19th, 2013 at 10:29 am

    Superior knowledge SHOULD, in theory, lead to better decision making. In the case of the Yankee rehab process this year it hasn’t.

  37. MTU July 19th, 2013 at 10:30 am

    A-Rod and Musty can both provide some right side pop.

  38. blake July 19th, 2013 at 10:30 am

    The Yankees should be having buy and sell conversations right now…..a week from now it could be more clear what they should do. If they go to Boston and get swept then suddenly you’re 9 games back in late July……they HAVE to win at least one game in Boston….

  39. blake July 19th, 2013 at 10:32 am

    “Blake – they may know more, but they’re not doing much with their knowledge, other than making one bad decision after another”

    I don’t see how this is a bad decision….he will miss a week and they don’t have to play short handed during the most crucial time in the season. You push him and he could tear it and be out the rest of the year.

  40. MTU July 19th, 2013 at 10:32 am

    Blake-

    And then what happens in Texas ?

    You expecting a split there ?

  41. Locke July 19th, 2013 at 10:33 am

    We can never know what would have happened if the Yankees simply waited, but by their own admission they have rushed back players from the DL. So even if we can’t know that, I think we can say their decision was the wrong one.

    ————

    The decision is objectively the wrong one when the result in the player going back on the DL. I guess we can’t really judge whether they were just wrong, or negligent, in their decisions at the time they were made. Maybe they used the best medical advice, etc. but regardless bringing Jeter back to play the Twins was the wrong decision.

    Does anybody seriously want to claim that bringing all these players back was the right decision?

  42. austinmac July 19th, 2013 at 10:34 am

    Our hopes are lightening in a bottle from a guy who never has had thunder it his bat. Just more of the previously released crowd.

    I noted RAB did a buy or sell poll. The last I saw sell was leading. The fans may be wiser than they are given credit.

  43. MTU July 19th, 2013 at 10:36 am

    I think the burden once again is going to fall on the shoulders of our Pitching staff over the next 2 weeks.

    If they can once again rise to the occasion we should do alright.

    If not……

    Our O cannot be counted on to score a lot of runs on a consistent basis as presently constituted. It needs a serious boost.

  44. Wave Your Hat July 19th, 2013 at 10:36 am

    I don’t think any of us can possibly know whether bringing DJ back for the Minny series was the right or wrong decision unless we also know what shape his legs were in going into that series. And I doubt any of us do.

  45. Tackelberry July 19th, 2013 at 10:36 am

    2 of 3 is doable in Boston, though of course they need to pitch well. Time for Andy to turn things around. For some reason, they never seem to hit Doubront, an average pitcher at best. They should hit Dempster, and Kuroda has been terrific his last 2 starts. Sunday night is a crapshoot. CC never seems to pitch well in Fenway, but Lester is clearly not the Lester of the last couple of years. Winning 2 of 3 is certainly doable.

  46. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 19th, 2013 at 10:36 am

    Of course you didn’t have to be a card-carrying memeber of team perspicacity to see this one coming. But rail on Yankee fans! Since Cashman reads this blog, he’ll undoubtedly be impressed with your loyalty to the Yankees and all of your foreboadings about what’s going to happen to your predicted dwindling Yankee fanbase because – HORRORS! – the Yankees aren’t spending every bloody last cent to make sure that you don’t go to bed with wet diapers.

    Yeah, Jeter got rushed back. Wonder why.

    Those of you who complain incessesantly make me want to puke. You don’t deserve to be fans of this team. In fact, you probably don’t deserve to be fans of any team.

    Yeah I said it. Now do something about it – if you can stop crying long enough.

    :evil:

  47. MTU July 19th, 2013 at 10:38 am

    Wave-

    To me the cause and the blame game is almost irrelevant.

    The fact that we lost him at a critical time is.

    A real frickin’ shame.

  49. blake July 19th, 2013 at 10:38 am

    “And then what happens in Texas ?”

    one series at a time…..if they go to Boston and get swept then they’re 9 back and essentially done. Gotta they win a game it’s 7…..win the series and it’s 5. It’s a huge series…..could decide the season.

  50. Rich in NJ July 19th, 2013 at 10:38 am

    How about with Youk? Right or wrong decision? Again, play your first day game after a night game in rehab.

  51. Tackelberry July 19th, 2013 at 10:38 am

    Lillibridge was killing it at AAA. He deserves a look. Get him in the lineup tonight against the lefty and see what he can do.

  52. ManningRules July 19th, 2013 at 10:38 am

    now would be a good time to insert Young into this mix. Like before 7pm tonight..

  53. Niblick July 19th, 2013 at 10:39 am

    Blake – the bad decision was panicking and bringing Jeter up to play a day game in NY after he played a night game in the minors the day before. He was called by Cashman after 11 pm, had to drive to NY, got about 2 hours of sleep and then played the next day.

    Panicking on the part of the Yankees – like they did when they started Hughes at the beginning of the season, like they did when they brought up Youk and Tex after 2 rehab games.

  54. Wave Your Hat July 19th, 2013 at 10:39 am

    Maybe they made a reasonable decision at the time when they made the call to bring him back.

    But after he lands back on the DL, it definitely becomes a bad decision.

  58. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 19th, 2013 at 10:40 am

    Why not just trade Granderson for Pence? Both are rentals. Why would SF do that? Maybe the prefer more pop. Obviously the Yankees need a righty. We can throw in Joba (head first).

  62. Locke July 19th, 2013 at 10:42 am

    ‘Yeah, Jeter got rushed back. Wonder why.’

    —–

    Trish – The people who post on this blog aren’t typical fans. I’m sure you, and nearly everybody on here knows 90% more about the Yankees then the typical fan. WE weren’t the ones complaining for Jeter to come back, we all want what is best for him. Plus, Cashman and crew shouldn’t feel pressured by the fan base to bring guys back from their rehab stints before they feel that the player is 100% ready.

  63. Hans Davenport July 19th, 2013 at 10:43 am

    This team doesn’t seem to have competent management at any level.

    I know. It’s hilarious, sadly enough. The only equivalent I can draw would be the US government. What a sad state of affairs for what had once been the best franchise in sports. Of course that was eons ago and it took literally decades to reach this level of incompetence.

  64. joeman July 19th, 2013 at 10:43 am

    really Arod is a DL waiting to happen for sure…called the Jeter DL yesterday and it’s all on the NYY….could have had him build his leg muscles up for seven more days he didn’t need to play before the AS break

    Brent Lillibridge :

    Regardless of how he does – he deserves the call-up.

    We wish him well !

    Stepping into SS or 3B….the bar isn’t set too high so far…..can he exceed Nix ?

    That really is the benchmark (a bit sad – but true)

    What’s his reputation with the glove ?

  67. Doreen July 19th, 2013 at 10:44 am

    Jerkface,

    I’m not certain heyve admitted it so much as allowed for he possibility, because it is an I exact science. Factored in with players who lie about how they feel because they want to “help the team,” there is always the chance you’re going o be a little off.

    I think they should have he DJ play a day game after a night game once before reactivating him. I wish Garder and Hafner hadn’t had to miss that game that necessitated Jeter being called in. I wish it wasn’t 95 degrees and humid everyday and that everything would work out with a neat little bow attached.

    Tex was always gonna end up needing surgery. Youkilis was always gonna be one false move away from another DL stint. The rest? Grandy was a freak thing having nothing to do with being brought back too soon. Nunez spent more time in rehab than they thought and they did not rush Cervelli.

    For me the mistake with Tex and Youk was playing them in an 18 inning game.

    Jeter didnt think he needed rehab games at all. Again, if a player isn’t going to replicate ML intensity in a rehab gem, how do you make an accurate assessment

  68. Jesus Bustero July 19th, 2013 at 10:44 am

    Michael Young would probably require Dellin Betances. With Mo leaving that’s a tough pill to swallow.

  69. Hans Davenport July 19th, 2013 at 10:44 am

    He hadn’t played a day game after a night game. He’s virtually 40. Taking the extra time seems to be a no-brainer.

    Yes this is true but please don’t criticize the incompetent people responsible.

  70. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 19th, 2013 at 10:45 am

    “I don’t think any of us can possibly know whether bringing DJ back for the Minny series was the right or wrong decision unless we also know what shape his legs were in going into that series. And I doubt any of us do.”

    Bull. He hadn’t gone through a full series of rehab games, and the “talk” was that he would “probably” be around for the Sux series.

    It was probably the plethora of suicide threats from Yankee fans after the post-Minny losses that caused them to jet him back.

    This is a bullsh*t fan base. If I didn’t love the Yankees so much I would want to extricate myself from it entirelly. I actually feel dirty being part of a spoiled-rotten complaining fan base who only shows appreciation when the Yankees are winning up a storm.

  71. MTU July 19th, 2013 at 10:45 am

    Blake-

    Going to Texas is never a good thing.

    Yes. Sux first. can’t predict baseball. We could sweep them. they could sweep us.

    etc., etc.

    I’d like our chances better if it wasn’t at Fenway, facing 2 lefties, and with a decimated offense.

    But hey. Hope springs eternal.

    I’m not looking forward to that trip to Texas either.

    Luck be our Lady.

  72. blake July 19th, 2013 at 10:46 am

    The Yankees are teetering on the edge of losing their season…..I can’t say I blame then for rushing Jeter back a little when Gardner and Hafner weren’t going to be able to play. They have to start a run here or they are finished…..they can’t lose more games. The injury wasn’t related to the ankle and could have been totally a random thing for a 39 year old…….maybe they acted a little desperate but you know what…..they ARE desperate ……nothing about this season has been ideal…..

  73. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 19th, 2013 at 10:46 am

    “Yes this is true but please don’t criticize the incompetent people responsible.”

    Or the unpleasable fan base that likes to eat its own.

    What came first, rushing players back or fans crying like babies?

  74. joeman July 19th, 2013 at 10:46 am

    didn’t matter with Youkilis he could have played 1 game a week he was going on the DL….this goes down as a NYY top ten bad signing

    Trisha,

    You have no right to say what people can say or who should be a fan. Nor should I about you. You often say people criticize you. Do you ever wonder why?

    I now see you contend Cashman makes decisions based upon what we say. Really?

  77. Niblick July 19th, 2013 at 10:47 am

    Probably motivated by a desire to sell some more tickets. The fans aren’t exactly packing it in this year.

    Just because we love the Yankees doesn’t mean we have to love every decision by the front office. Not all of us are complaining, must are just frustrated that this has happened over, and over, and over this year.

  79. Wave Your Hat July 19th, 2013 at 10:48 am

    trisha, the Yankees didn’t bring back Jeter to please the fan base. If it serves some psychological need for you to believe they did, be my guest, but they brought him back because with Gardner and Hafner out and the season starting to go south they thought they needed him. Cash is a grown up, and he asked, and Jeter, who is also a grown up, said yes.

    It’s a shame, but that’s all.

  80. Madrugador July 19th, 2013 at 10:48 am

    A lot of hand wringing here.
    We will know a lot more on Monday.
    My prayer is to sweep Boston.
    My hope is to take 2 of 3.

  84. Mike in Harrisburg July 19th, 2013 at 10:50 am

    My take – obviously you can’t predict when discrete injuries will happen and whether guys will re-aggravate things upon return, but this entire season is one big shoe that has been waiting to drop for years. It is definitely worst-case scenario, but relying on multiple guys in their late 30s (in a non-PED world) to stay healthy, let alone produce at or near peak levels, is just a fool’s errand.

    The Yankees have been rolling the dice for the last 2 or 3 seasons and this year it finally came up snake eyes.

    the yankees should not be making trades for old people like michael young. those types of deals make sense if there is a strong nucleus in place and you need one to two players to complete the team. the yankees are right now a bunch of old fringe players. trading prospects for more fringe players in the hopes that the yankees can somehow slip into the playoffs is stupid. its how doug drabeck, bob tewksbury, dennis rasmussen, jay buhner, willie mcgee, and countless others in the 1980s being traded cost the yankees about 10 years worth of being a legitimate championship contender.

The DL move was obvious and should have been done Mon. Again, if I’m callin’ the shots, I add Rent-A-Players Morneau and Kubel or Schierholtz. Kubel would be my preference as he already is familiar with the AL Chuckers. I add the Rent-A-Players to the offense along with Jeet and see what I got. A-Rod would Not play for me.

    Trisha, you’re right. As Yankees fans, we do have a sense of entitlement. That’s what comes with making the playoffs year in, year out. It’s just human nature. Remember, it’s not the fans who said anything less than winning a World Championship is a disappointment.

    Yanks probably weren’t making the playoffs this year with or without the injuries. Not good enough. But that doesn’t give ownership and the front office a free pass on all the bad decisions they’ve made.

    It’s vital that they make the right decisions now, rather than panic moves, to ensure we make the playoffs 19 times in the next 20 years.

    Of all the strange things I see here the second guessing on injuries takes the cake.

    I’ve been around sports my entire life and have seen go thru an incredible season with few if any injuries and seen teams go thru seasons where someone is injured or re-injured over and over and over again.

    That’s with the same doctors, trainers and re-hab specialists providing the injury assessment, course of treatment and recovery evaluation. It’s an inexact science because every situation and every athlete is unique in one or several ways.

    This has been a bizarre year for the Yankees injury-wise, but it’s ridiculous to think the organization somehow became completely clueless on medical issues all at once.

    And Trish is right… some of you refer to this team crashing this year with some sort of Armageddon like disaster. Despite all the injuries this team is 3 1/2 out of the Wild Card… every team in baseball would love to have this as their most “disastrous” season.

    And you have to be one of the most stupid asses on earth not to be able to figure out that booing breaks down a person and is the worst thing in the world in terms of trying to get the results you’re looking for. But what that tells you is that the person doing it is more concerned with acting out her or his own disappointment than supporting the person who’s struggling. Immaturity at its best.

    I think part of the outburst some from comparisons. When we look around baseball, it seems those teams right around us have guys either waiting to contribute and producing very well at their levels, and while we have a few, it’s not on that level.
    But, I pose that guys that might be doing what Baltimore, Boston, and Tampa’s prospects are doing arent there, theyre in NY!
    If Nunez and others were still in the minors, we’d have a lot more pieces, but haven’t been afforded that luxury this year.

  125. G. Love July 19th, 2013 at 11:21 am

    I can’t blame the Yankees for Jeter going down. Jeter has forced himself back into this lineup when he was 50% of what he could be for years. It’s part of what his legacy is built on and it’s part of a problem with him when he ignores what his body is telling him.

    Luckily, his warrior mentality has never really sunk this club and serves to inspire.

    The Yankees could have pumped the brakes on him coming back, but they didn’t because Derek kept telling them he was ready.

    The only thing I think the Yankees are guilty of is taking their players word when it comes to this injury stuff. If you look at it from the flip side, imagine how it would look to tell players who say they are healthy to sit for another week? I’m sure the players union would have something to say about that.

    It stinks to not have him back in the lineup, but that’s the narrative of this season.

    If it’s going to happen this year (and I still think it will), it’s going to be one of the strangest rides to the post season we’ve ever seen as fans.

    The one thing I’ll say people in this forum can be guilty of is elevating our competition to deity status. There is not a perfect team or a juggernaut in this race. Every team has flaws and teams that play above their heads in the first 100 games sometimes fall flat on their faces in the last 61.

    Try to keep the faith. I think we’re going to come out of this “rough” stretch a lot better than many of you think.

    And Lillibridge is a welcome addition. I still think of him making all those ridiculous plays in RF for the White Sox against us a few years ago. He’s a gamer. Let’s hope his AAA hitting prowess follows him up.

  131. Mike in Harrisburg July 19th, 2013 at 11:30 am

    I don’t really enjoy getting into the metaphysics of fandom, etc, but I would only say people enjoy sports for different reasons. Some are the “Marge Simpson” type and just want everyone on the diamond to have a good time out there, and others enjoy critiquing moves both on and off the field and derive entertainment from thinking how they would do things differently. It strikes me as sort of pointless to get upset over the manner in which other people choose to follow the team, and it’s certainly presumptuous to diminish the commitment of other fans who see things differently.

    Aside – I think booing players is ultimately counterproductive and I don’t do it but I can understand the reasons why some people do, and they certainly have every right. Certainly it’s more justified in some cases than others. IE booing Swisher in last year’s playoffs versus, say, David Adams or Austin Romine this year.

  132. chicken little July 19th, 2013 at 11:32 am

    Let me see if I get this right — its OK for the Yankees to keep telling A-Rod to shut up about rehab, when he is coming back, etc … because the Yankees and only the Yankees get to decide that — and its also OK for Jeter to force his way back into the lineup, because he is Jeter and Jeter calls the shots as to Jeter?

    its debatable whether this injury would have happened in AAA and whether its a fluke injury, but please — the Yankees made the decision to activate Jeter.

    She was taught never to allow herself to be bullied or to back down from a fight.

    You sometimes see that coming thru too. And yet I think of her as very gentle.

    Yes that’s a nice sentiment. However I don’t pay hard earned money to see professionals, “Go out, have a good time and just have fun.” That’s baloney, and when I see a professional player say that it is unnerving. Sorry, I want them playing their tail off and doing anything to win. “Fun” is for amateurs. Winning and hard nosed play is for pros.

    The high fiving in the dugout after a “productive” out, the jumping up and down at home plate after a walk off is childish.

    Frankie Crosetti, long time Yankee SS and 3rd base coach never shook any player’s hand after a HR (when the player rounded 3rd) until Maris hit his 61st. His reason was they got paid to do that and you don’t get a handshake for doing your job.

    We had to travel all the way down to las Vegas to find a specialist since our little town did not have one.

    In addition, on the last visit to the specialist we discovered the eye lesion I mentioned above which threatened to blind him in one eye.

    The level of care it has taken has been complete devotion, money, and time.

    In have not hiked in weeks. I get up in the middle of the night to administer medicine, and so on.

    It’s been like taking care of a very sick child. My world has been turned completely upside down.

    He is finally starting to respond which gives us great joy especially after all the time and money spent.

    I think Mrs. MTU and I are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel now.

    I just hope and pray it stays that way.

    heard a rumor that the RS are going to watch Jake Peavy’s next two starts…

    Thanks Astro.

    I know you understand loving an animal.

  148. ManningRules July 19th, 2013 at 11:51 am

    “heard a rumor that the RS are going to watch Jake Peavy’s next two starts”

    Thats not even a concern. I was more worried that they’d land a decent arm like Garza or Lee. Id actually rather see Peavy than to see them call up an unknown. They have, imo, a few guys that would probably perform better than Peavy right now, short term.

  149. astrocityfan July 19th, 2013 at 11:55 am

    Absolutely MTU. They bring you joy and can break your heart. Glad to hear the good news!

    RS search for pitching will intensify now that Bucholz has had another setback. Hope teams hold them up like they do the Yanks

  151. blake July 19th, 2013 at 11:56 am

    MTU,

    I really hate that….was it tainted with bacteria or something to cause it? I hope he/she has turned the corner now……our dog was diagnosed with SARDS about a year ago and it was a rough time…..SARDS stands for (Sudden Acute Retinal Detachment Syndrome)…..basically they just go blind suddenly with no real reason or cause.. We didn’t know what was wrong with him for days because he wouldn’t move or eat or do anything……rough time but he’s adjusted now and so long as he’s somewhere he’s familiar with you hardly even can tell he can’t see……

  152. Hans Davenport July 19th, 2013 at 11:56 am

    Jim Bouton doesnt paint a flattering picture of Crosetti in Ball Four

    Of course he didn’t. I don’t know if he painted a flattering portrait of anyone in the book. I doubt very much the purpose of that book was to make anyone look good outside of Jim Bouton. In any event he failed to do that also. I never thought much of Jim Bouton and believe much of what was in the book wasn’t exactly truthful.

    If anyone loved being a NY Yankee and was proud of it that would be Frank Crosetti. With his coaching time he probably has more WS rings then anyone. If anyone made a mockery of being a Yankee as well as a mockery of being a major league player it was Jim Bouton.

  153. MTU July 19th, 2013 at 11:57 am

    Blake-

    To say that Mrs. MTU and I had been hit by a sh*tstorm of bad news over the last 6 months would be to put it lightly.

    It did not just rain. It poured.

    It’s going to change for the better. It almost has to.

  154. Hans Davenport July 19th, 2013 at 12:00 pm

    Some people do, is all I was saying. And that’s just as legit a reason. Which was my entire point.

    Yes I know. I realize that. My point is that when I hear a player say, “Well the old skipper told us not to worry about winning or losing, he said just go out and have fun,” I make plans not to attend anymore games that team plays.

  155. MTU July 19th, 2013 at 12:01 pm

    Blake-

    I believe 1 in 25,000 have the reaction. We are trying to recover our costs from Pfizer who makes the vaccine. Our vet is trying to help with that.

    The real irony is that our pup’s name is “lucky”.

    I might have to change that.

    Sorry to hear about yours. But it sounds like you all love him and so he will get the care he needs and live out his life in joy regardless.

  156. astrocityfan July 19th, 2013 at 12:04 pm

    Point taken Hans. And i believe youre right about Crosetti having the most rings as a player\coach.

    MTU,
    I heard several years ago that the Russians have a folk belief that goes like this: When things go bad, the universe is just preparing you for good times. They believe that you will receive good that equals or exceeds the trouble youve endured.
    I hope that these bad times give way to good for you and that they soon are just distant memories swallowed by the good fortune.

  157. ManningRules July 19th, 2013 at 12:05 pm

    “RS search for pitching will intensify now that Bucholz has had another setback. Hope teams hold them up like they do the Yanks”

    This is true, the only difference is that the Red Sox have the expendable pieces to be held up for. They have all three of Middlebrooks, who most assume is going to rebound at some point, but I view him as more akin to Ike Davis. Xander Boegarts who most assume is one of the best prospects in baseball and another kid – slips my mind – all vying for one or two positions right now. They can give up Boegarts and not have it affect them since Drew is on a two year deal and I assume they’ll stick with Middlebrooks at third – nevermind Iglesias.
    They also have the pitchers to deal as well.
    So them being held up doesn’t exactly hurt them as bad, which is why it’s a bad thing if you think about guys like Lee if Philly decides to sell.

    On another note – did anyone else see Lee during the introductions at the AS game? He genuinely looked like he’d rather be digging a ditch than being introduced. He looked angry.

  158. Wave Your Hat July 19th, 2013 at 12:07 pm

    ” If anyone made a mockery of being a Yankee as well as a mockery of being a major league player it was Jim Bouton.”

    Bit of an overstatement there. The book was a pretty fun read and I suspect a pretty honest glimpse of baseball as a combination of a lot of things, including adolescent behavior, grinding pressure and business, and no more dishonest about the subject than any autobiography.

    Knocking it seems kinda antedeluvian.

  159. austinmac July 19th, 2013 at 12:09 pm

    Tackelbery,

    You seem to be one that thinks other teams treat the Yankees differently in trades. At one point teams probably could take advantage of George’s knee jerk reactions. Now, I can’t imagine why a team, other than a competitor, would not trade with the the team if they felt it was a good deal. Their motivation is to improve, not to negatively impact the Yankees.

    The real issue is, I believe, we believe too much of the hype with our prospects and other teams see them from a non-fan perspective.

  160. MTU July 19th, 2013 at 12:09 pm

    Thank you Astro. Your kindness is very appreciated.

    People who know me well around here know I am usually very confident, optimistic, and fun-loving.

    Sometimes things just turn sour in a hurry. We all go thru it sooner or later.

    Still, with it all, I know I am lucky compared with many whose suffering is so much greater and who are not as fortunate.

    It just swept in like a flash flood so adjusting was difficult.

    I’d like it to go out that way too even thought I know it can’t.

    May your luck be better. And when it’s not may God be at your back always.

    :)

  161. Warning Track Power July 19th, 2013 at 12:15 pm

    Too bad about Jeter and his DL stint. Not surprised. Was anybody here surprised?
    At least the strain was a Grade 1 and not more severe.

    Good news is that ARod his another HR. That’s a nice trend. Shows he is driving
    the ball with authority. I expect at least 1 more HR over the weekend.

  162. RayVT July 19th, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    I didn’t quite understand the Yanks bringing Jeter up before AS break because Jeter even if healthy would be off for 5 days & that didn’t seem like a good idea to me. Also, if he stayed in rehab he could pace himself for another whole week & only miss 3 MLB games.

    That said I wanted to see if Jeter could help, but I would not have made that move.

  163. ManningRules July 19th, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    “The real issue is, I believe, we believe too much of the hype with our prospects and other teams see them from a non-fan perspective.”

    This is indicative of every fan base, but with regards to NY, we need a prospect to actually live up the hype that surrounds them before any of that thought begins to go away.

    Like if Atlanta or St.Louis was to trade away a pitcher. Nobody wants them because if Atlanta is trading them, there must be something wrong with them, right?
    The Yankees need some of the hype to actually pan out.

  164. ManningRules July 19th, 2013 at 12:17 pm

  165. blake July 19th, 2013 at 12:18 pm

  166. MTU July 19th, 2013 at 12:19 pm

    Austin Jackson certainly lived up to his hype.

  167. Frankg July 19th, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    To make room on the 40 man, the Yankees could call up Boesch or Nuno on paper for day and then put them on the 60-day DL. Cannot put someone on the 60 day while in the minors.

  168. MTU July 19th, 2013 at 12:22 pm

    Blake-

    That’s exactly what it was. An auto-immune reaction brought on by the Rabies vaccine.

    They should pay every frickin’ dime including something for all the pain and suffering.

    Of course w/o the threat of a lawsuit I doubt they’ll fess up to much.

    But we’ll give it our best shot.

    Mrs. MTU has some very creative ideas in mind if they try to avoid responsibility.

  169. MTU July 19th, 2013 at 12:24 pm

    I apologize for all this dog talk.

  170. ManningRules July 19th, 2013 at 12:26 pm

    “Austin Jackson certainly lived up to his hype.”

    To this, there is no real argument, except what the “hype” was. Austin Jackson can go get it, and as a hitter his numbers are very respectable. He has certainly become an effective outfielder in the baseball. Defensively, he is definitely above average. Offensively, do you think Det got everything they thought?

    That being said, I’d undo that trade in a second if I could.

  171. blake July 19th, 2013 at 12:26 pm

    MTU,

    yea….I think you’re case greatly would depend on whether it was a listed side effect from the company. If they didn’t list what happened as a possible side effect then you have a good case and might could win. They would probably prefer a settlement over going to court and the bad PR I bet…..

  172. ManningRules July 19th, 2013 at 12:26 pm

    Good luck, MTU

  173. MG July 19th, 2013 at 12:27 pm

    It’s too bad about Jete going back on the DL but it makes lots of sense.

    As to the reason for his injury, it probably didn’t matter whether he played a day game after a night game or not-if he hadn’t run full out in the minors before being called up he wasn’t going to do it whether he played 1, 2 or 10 more games.

    A couple of days either way aren’t the issue at all.

    He’s almost 40 and coming off a major surgery and a recurrent break in the ankle-he’s a warrior but his days of playing full time in the field are undoubtedly over and, if he continues to have problems with his legs after this DL stnint, he may decide to hang up his spikes sooner than we might believe, maybe at the end of the season or during spring training next year.

    No Yankee fan wants to see that and I am hoping for a full recovery but who knows at this point in time…

  174. Niblick July 19th, 2013 at 12:30 pm

    MTU – unfortunately in virtually every state, an owner of a companion animal cannot recover for pain or suffering.

    Was it a bad batch of vaccine, or a reaction to the vaccine (probably to an adjuvant included in the vaccine)?

    Hope your pup continues to recover.

  175. comnsnse July 19th, 2013 at 12:31 pm

    Trish , rockin and rollin today! You must be a difficult adversary in a courtroom intimidating those miscreants!

    Hans, I was a little surprised with your seeming intent in an earlier post to throw in the towel on the entire organization. Also comparing a baseball team to the government of the U.S. is a little over the top,no?

    I hardly think that the Yankee organization is as flawed and dysfunctional as the divisive government and the country at large.

    Governing this country today is to put it mildly extremely complex as as always agenda driven primarily by the forces of capital, especially the wealth accumulators.

    The Yankees will find their way but the angst here is ridiculous given the success of team since the 20′s’ as well as 5 WS wins since 1996, i.e. 5 out of 17!

  176. Shame Spencer July 19th, 2013 at 12:32 pm

    We really gotta move past this idea that the Yankees make decisions based on the fan base.. they only use that as an excuse when it’s convenient (ie: no one likes home runs).

  177. ManningRules July 19th, 2013 at 12:33 pm

    The bigger question, going forward, and bias aside, is what to do with #2 going forward? He’ll be a near 41 year old SS, for the Yankees?
    I don’t buy into the “warrior” mentality, ect. He’s a baseball player, not a super hero – at what level do you think it’s okay for NY to bring him back, regardless of loyalties?

    If he’ll sign a one year/ 8MM deal, I do it. But a penny or day longer, and I seriously have to think they’re just paying for services rendered and not expected.

  178. Shame Spencer July 19th, 2013 at 12:33 pm

    There’s not a person in this fan base that was cool with them throwing away money at Youk and Wells and not upgrading any of the positions that were left open by departing FAs. Where was the fan bases’ opinion being taken into account in that scenario? It wasn’t. That simple.

    The org isn’t worried about the fan base. Any org that makes personnel decisions based on their fans is usually one that is poorly run.

    Lilibridge is decent at both SS and 2b.

    I disagree entirely. He’s neither decent or average at either.

    ______________________________________

    Just asked they guy on Twitter who covers the Scranton team about Lillibridge. He said he has looked pretty solid in the infield. Not sure if he has the arm strength to play SS regularly, but he gets to anything.

    Oh, well a reporter on twitter who has seen him play a handful of games, that settles it. :roll:

    His actual numbers at SS and 2B in the majors have been bad.

    “If he’ll sign a one year/ 8MM deal, I do it. But a penny or day longer, and I seriously have to think they’re just paying for services rendered and not expected.”

    well for 2014 he’s got a player option for 8 million which I’m almost sure he’s going to trigger now…..so I’d say he’ll play next year and then we’ll see. Probably he’ll go year to year after that I’d imagine…….

    before the injury it was speculated that he could opt to decline the player option for 2014 and pursue another multi year deal……that’s likely off the table now given he’s missed over half this seasonl

  182. Hans Davenport July 19th, 2013 at 12:40 pm

    The Yankees will find their way but the angst here is ridiculous given the success of team since the 20?s’ as well as 5 WS wins since 1996, i.e. 5 out of 17!

    Your goofy indignant response is, “I worked for government for ten years and know whereof I speak”!

    So one should assume your vast experience in the U.S. government sector suggests it’s similar to running a sport’s franchise?

  208. go August 9th, 2014 at 6:35 am

    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.

  209. go to these guys August 9th, 2014 at 6:46 am

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  210. go to link August 9th, 2014 at 7:24 am

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I found this during my hunt for something concerning this.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    Aw, this was an incredibly nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to produce a great article… but what can I say… I hesitate a lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  227. good page August 9th, 2014 at 2:51 pm

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    Can I simply say what a comfort to uncover someone that genuinely knows what they are discussing on the web. You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people should check this out and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you are not more popular since you most certainly have the gift.

  240. good link August 9th, 2014 at 6:25 pm

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
