Game 102: Yankees at Rangers

Holland vs. Yankees

TIME/TV: 2:05 p.m., YES Network and MLB Network

WEATHER: Warm and sunny. Of course.

UMPIRES: HP Vic Carapazza, 1B Wally Bell, 2B Kerwin Danley, 3B Lance Barksdale

DESIGNATED HITTER: Over his last 15 games, Robinson Cano is batting .358 (19-for-53) with 13 RBI, 10 walks and a .453 on-base percentage. He needs two homers to become the 16th player in franchise history to reach 200 for his career.

HOUDINI: According to Elias, Dave Robertson has retired the past 23 batters he faced with the bases loaded since April 19, 2011. He’s struck out 16 of those batters and he let one hit a sacrifice fly. The last pitcher with a longer such streak was Jeff Brantley who retired 30 straight with the bases loaded from 1989 to 1991.

WRONG WAY: Since reached a season-best 12 games over .500 on May 25, the Yankees have gone 23-30 including 10-16 on the road.

UPDATE, 3:14 p.m.: Games have felt so secondary on this trip. Now Cashman has scheduled a conference call with the beat writers in just a few minutes. Not sure what it’s about. A-Rod? A trade? We don’t know.

UPDATE, 3:29 p.m.: The conference call was an update on Alex Rodriguez, who was reexamined today. A Tampa doctor agreed with the Grade 1 strain assessment but said Rodriguez has made progress. He’ll begin a rehab program this weekend and the plan is for him to be in a rehab game or sim game on August 1. Cashman does not think it will be much longer before he’s in the big league lineup.

Also, Cashman would not comment on whether Rodriguez is being disciplined by the Yankees. It’s worth noting that, when the Yankees did a conference call with Rodriguez to explain their plan going forward, Rodriguez had his lawyer on the call.

UPDATE, 3:43 p.m.: The Yankees are on the board with a couple of doubles in the sixth.

    as I said yesterday, play Arod every day at 3rd base until he either begs off (players never do that) or breaks down.

    I would have had him on a plane to DFW last night and had him in the lineup this afternoon in front of a crowd that absolutely hates him in 95+ weather.

    Play both Arod and Jete together in the field except when Jeter DHs, no DH days for Arod, he hasn’t earned that 1/2 day off.

    At this point in time they aren’t going anywhere unless lightning strikes and they might as well get their money’s worth…

    If they really want Alex gone maybe the best thing to do is play the guy every inning of every game until he loses a leg or something… He wants to play? Play him nonstop. No DH days, forget the issue of a day game after a night game and assume he’s ready, a bunch of games on turf? Run him out there.

    True or False: The Yankees will score a run today?

    The correct answer, of course, is false. But for some strange reason I think they will score a few off Holland today. Surely he can’t be as dominant as he was at Yankee Stadium last month. I have no logic to back up my theory…just a gut feeling.

  10. jacksquat July 25th, 2013 at 2:08 pm

    Shame, we are on the same page on Arod-

    ‘get our there, hoss, thanks for putting us in touch with Dr Gross and don’t worry about off days, you are our every day, and we mean, EVERY DAY, 3rd baseman’

  13. Hassey July 25th, 2013 at 2:10 pm

    They should have given Mo a Fathead of that fat kid in CF who races onto the grass to catch all the homers.

    P.S. report – If A-rod thinks he has it bad with the press, he should read Tony Kubek’s book “Sixty-One” to see what Maris went through. Anyone who is interested in that era of Yankee baseball should read that one, too

    One of us should ask Parker Brothers to create a new BINGO game using some of these Yankee lineups that we’ve seen this year…some way to memorialize these guys for all eternity before we never hear their names again

  23. Shame Spencer July 25th, 2013 at 2:13 pm

    MG – The thing is there are a lot of different ways to deal with this but I think because they’re so worried about saving money on his deal they just won’t act.

    If the Yankees were such a principled organization, they could have said ‘you know what, we don’t want you, we don’t need you and we want you gone’ and just let him go while eating his money. But they won’t.

  24. Hassey July 25th, 2013 at 2:14 pm

    the free one is probably the lower level-one of the big advantages of MLBTV and a player like Roku is that you can get the Premium service and always have the Yankees feed-it also archives games automatically so you go back and watch the game at any inning you want instead of having to fast forward through the recording.

    “Worst lineup in 30 years?”

    I don’t think so. You have to remember just how bad that 1990 team was.

    Bob Geren at C. Alvaro Espinoza at SS. Mike Blowers at 3rd. Balboni the DH.

    Those were just ugly, ugly times.

    These lineups do approach it, though.

    After ichiros seven pitch ab all three next batters swung at first pitch.
    Just poor poor basics..

  35. DONNYBROOK July 25th, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    Horrible offense, guy batting Under .100 (Lilli), runner at 1B, No outs, and Girardi lets him hit away? DUMB, DUMB, DUMB.

  36. Niblick July 25th, 2013 at 2:18 pm

  41. DONNYBROOK July 25th, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    This is Exactly why the Yanks need a homer laden lineup. Girardi is Clueless when it comes to generating runs.

  42. Warning Track Power July 25th, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    Post All-Star break the Yankees have had 6 games.
    5 of them were pitched very well.
    5 of those games the starter pitched more than well enough to win
    the game.

    I knew Andy was going to rebound last night with a much stronger outing and he certainly
    did pitch well enough to win last night.

  43. sar515 July 25th, 2013 at 2:23 pm

    Tough pitcher. 100 degree temp.
    So Yanks work 13 pitches for first 2 batters.
    Cano 3 pitches.
    Law swings at first???

    Patience?
    Smart approach?

    For all of you detractors here that are complaining about this line-up, I would love
    to see how how other MLB team would fare with
    a 5th string 3B, Lillibridge
    a 2nd string SS, Nunez
    a 4th string 2B, Adams
    a 2nd string 1B, Overbay
    a 3rd string C, Romine
    a 6th string OF, Mesa

  48. Mike in Harrisburg July 25th, 2013 at 2:26 pm

    I know it’s been said to death, but I just wish if they were going to be bad, it was as a necessary consequence of being on the road to improvement. It’s becoming more apparent this is just a slow death-rattle of a season, and it is hard to countenance. The front office is ruthless in all the wrong ways.

  49. DONNYBROOK July 25th, 2013 at 2:28 pm

    Washington uses his Closer and set-up guys 3 straight games, (and counting), runs his Regular lineup out there 4 Straight games, and Girardi’s lineup is absent Gardner today and Stewart 2 games. It’s obvious which team wants to win this series.

  50. bruceb July 25th, 2013 at 2:28 pm

    I’ve been taking that approach since the start of the season. I just happen to over-estimate at 86 wins. They will be lucky to reach 81 now.

    Either way, though, it’s not enjoyable. I’ve been watching the MLB Network most nights and flicking over to the YES network. Who wants to see their team fail inning after inning?

  51. Hassey July 25th, 2013 at 2:29 pm

    Leadoff man on again.
    How will this go?

  53. 86w183 July 25th, 2013 at 2:30 pm

    WTP —

    Exactly right. It’s silly to criticize Girardi for the lineup on any given day. It is impossible to make out a strong lineup with this roster.

    The Yanks have at most three every day MLB hitters and one is getting the day off.

    If Granderson and the world’s slowest healing pinkie make it thru the weekend I’d call him up. If you add him,. Jeter and A-rod the lineup will look a ton better. It may not be any better, but it will look better.

    Its inexcusable not to have Ruiz up to face lefties. A powerless team wont promote a guy who seems to hit a HR daily in AAA???

  54. jacksquat July 25th, 2013 at 2:30 pm

    “I’m excited and ready to play and help this team win a championship. I feel great and I’m ready and want to be in the lineup Friday night. Enough doctors, let’s play.”

    I wonder if Buster-Brett still thinks Arod doesn’t want to play.

  55. ac1 July 25th, 2013 at 2:30 pm

    Ugh

  56. MG July 25th, 2013 at 2:30 pm

    How some of you can criticize a guy like Robbie Cano when you couldn’t hit a 90 mph fastball with a tennis racket amazes me.

    Holland made good pitches, Cano guessed wrong on the 1st pitch and missed it, that’s the way it goes sometimes in baseball, that’s why hitter with 30% success rates in getting hits are in the Hall of Fame

    His batting average when putting the 1st pitch in play this year is .438 and his OPS is 1.2, do you want him taking all those pitches and eliminating those stats even though he makes out at least 1/2 the time?

  57. Shame Spencer July 25th, 2013 at 2:31 pm

    You can make All the excuses you want, but when a guy batting Under .100, bats with a runner at 1B and No outs, he bunt. NO if and or buts. And then we refuse to bunt Adams in the exact same situation, and we get a DP. Girardi is flat-out Consistently DUMB.

    Stewie is a not a huge loss and he’s not a premiere catcher that can

  64. Hassey July 25th, 2013 at 2:35 pm

    maybe Gardy still has a bum leg

  65. Shame Spencer July 25th, 2013 at 2:36 pm

    At this rate I just don’t see how they’ll finish more than 3 games above .500 for the month… finishing this month with a 57-50 record is probably the best case scenario.

    Given our personnel, I don’t see how they can play .600+ ball over the next two months and that’s probably what it takes for them to make the playoffs unless the O’s, Rays and Sox all take nose dives.

  66. eb03 July 25th, 2013 at 2:36 pm

    Now mesa swings at first pitch

  73. DONNYBROOK July 25th, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    You saw Washington DH his catcher last night, so his catcher could catch today’s game. We all understand why the no-name players are on the 25 Man roster, and playing daily. With that in mind, a Mgr can Not have an offensive approach akin to sending guys to the plate that would fit right in on the “27″ Yankees. You can NOT let most these players just swing from the heels when runners are on base, and especially with men on and No outs. It’s just flat-out, game-in game-out, Stupid.

  74. ac1 July 25th, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    Its inexcusable not to have Ruiz up to face lefties. A powerless team wont promote a guy who seems to hit a HR daily in AAA???

    Seriously – there must be a reason we don’t call up RR (yet we have Mr. Neal present) ???

    Any clues ???

  87. blake July 25th, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    the 2 most predictable ways for the Yankees to score are 1) cano homer 2) gardner hits the ball to the pitcher who throws it away allowing him to get to 3B with no outs then Cano coming up…….

  88. Hassey July 25th, 2013 at 2:50 pm

    AJ Burnett even has an RBI today

    He’d be hitting behind Cano here

    Plain to see that Mesa is still very RAW and the game has not

    has not yet learned to let the game come to him on a consistent basis.

    he definitely has tools but he’s been in the Yankees system since 2006 without them being sharpened enough to be a big league player, it’s difficult for me to believe he will ever be successful with a swing as long as his…

  92. Chip July 25th, 2013 at 2:55 pm

    Melky Mesa strikes me as a better defensive version of Wily Mo Pena. He’s got great power when he makes contact but he doesn’t make contact often enough to be a regular player.

    the 2 most predictable ways for the Yankees to score are 1) cano homer 2) gardner hits the ball to the pitcher who throws it away allowing him to get to 3B with no outs then Cano coming up…….

    Think my gut feeling that the Yanks would score a few runs of Holland today must have been down to the tuna sandwich I’d just eaten. I’d love to see a stat on how many runs we’ve scored in the first five innings this year. Could be frightening.

    If they really want Alex gone maybe the best thing to do is play the guy every inning of every game until he loses a leg or something… He wants to play? Play him nonstop. No DH days, forget the issue of a day game after a night game and assume he’s ready, a bunch of games on turf? Run him out there.

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

    MLB just needs to suspend him the rest of this year and all of next. ‘A-Roid’ will then be quagmired in his appeals process for ever more at which point he will rthen be too old to comeback nor will anyone want to touch an old ‘radioactive’ player.

  115. Hassey July 25th, 2013 at 3:14 pm

    it looks like most of these guys ARE using real sticks

  116. ac1 July 25th, 2013 at 3:14 pm

    Alex says he is ready and he knew it would make the yankees look petty to hold him out.
    Here is an idea.
    Tell him he will be playing 3b tomorrow.
    If he is so ready, he should be able to play his position.
    If he dogs it, bench him and let him pinch hit.
    He cannot be worse than the bench we have.

    Cashman conference call.

    He’s going to be rappelling down ARod’s flagpole on Friday night?

    He wants to tell the beat writers to STFU?

    Maybe he’s trying to stop them writing a report on this game?

  125. Niblick July 25th, 2013 at 3:18 pm

    Arod discipline or arod activation?

    I agree with the poster that says put him at 3b and play him everyday until his leg falls off.
    They did it with stewie for most of this season.

  130. blake July 25th, 2013 at 3:20 pm

    If Cashman is smart he will have the conference call when the Yankees are hitting to divert attention away from the offense.

    If the Yankees get a whole bunch of money if Arod doesn’t return until after August 1st then they have really made a bad decision relative to the fanbase.

    In this situation then they have really jumped the shark, put Arod on his waterskis and let him jump over a shark tank in the middle of Yankee Stadium and put him out of his misery…

    The funny thing is that Arod is focusing on everything but whether any NYY fan wants to see him back.. Most fans just want nothing to do with him, it’s going to be interesting to see how he is received, especially if he struggles. Only reason why anybody wants him is because of how bad this team is currently, but I’d still take what is on field now then have to deal with Arod ever again.

  211. NYY_Girl_Penny July 25th, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    Yankees are stalling because they know that MLB Is about ready to go guns blazing at Arod and they don’t want him to come play before that happens. Such a frustrating situation, I have never boo’d Arod and always supported him, even knowing the PEDs stuff but I no longer have any tolerance or desire to see him in a NYY uniform again. He’s such a mental midget that he needs to prove to himself he can play, but nobody gives a crap even if he can, which is a slim chance.. jsut want the guy gone already.

  212. UpState July 25th, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    Cashman is a lying joke and I have no respect for him at all. He has to go…Let the man play! ARod is an immature jerk but Rehab games is just a stalling factor hoping he will get suspended…..

    no, actually you’re a joke if you think it’s Cashman pulling the strings. Why would you want Arod back ? Ohhh because his numbers are slightly better than what we have now.. who cares that Arod lied and cheated and manipulated the hearts of children who idolized him.. i know its more important that YOU have a player that can maybe score a run in a game… Arod need to go, period. He got his pay day already from cheating and lying. He has a lot of balls to think he deservers more than that. BUM!

  221. incident_57 July 25th, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    I don’t get why so many people think the Yanks are stalling with A-Rod until he gets suspended. Makes no sense. Even if A-Rod got suspended tomorrow, he can appeal and still play, and the appeal would likely not get settled until at least the end of the season. So the idea that Cashman, etc. are in a deal with the Commissioner’s office makes absolutely no sense.

    It also doesn’t make any sense that this is an insurance scam. The Yankees aren’t going to get any insurance $ for a Grade 1 quad strain. If A-Rod’s hip is not fixed and he can’t play anymore, that’s a different story. But a slight muscle pull? No. Just no.

    So these theories make NO sense at all.

    No way in hell i bring logan in unless kuroda collapses on the mound..

  224. DONNYBROOK July 25th, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    As I said, if forced to, Hal should activate A-Rod and let him Rot on the pine. Yeah, your playing a man short, but if Hal told the fans he was Not gonna denigrate what his Father had built, (by allowing A-Rod to play), there would be a ground swell of support from Yankee fans around the world.

  225. DONNYBROOK July 25th, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    Very hot and humid day, and Kuroda’s pitch count is getting up there.

    There are forces at work here that you and many are not privy to. As much as I disklike Arod it’s the Yankees fault he’s here, being idiots signing him even though Cashman was screaming NOOOOO DONT DO IT !

  227. ac1 July 25th, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    Dear joe, do NOT start managing now.
    Kuroda has earned his chance out of this more than hughes, cc and pettitte…

    Looks like Wash is going to blow one to Pirates. It was 7-3 T-9 & now 7-7 w/ runners on 2nd & 3rd & 2 outs

  231. joecembrale July 25th, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    Lucky it is not second and third

  232. ac1 July 25th, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    “The Yankees aren’t going to get any insurance $ for a Grade 1 quad strain.”

    It was reported they get 30% of this years salary if he missed the first 4 months of this season. Opening day +4 months is August 1.

  245. Shame Spencer July 25th, 2013 at 4:11 pm

    The Nats have been so not good…

  246. MG July 25th, 2013 at 4:11 pm

    Today’s Toyota question of the day-

    what is higher, Melky Mesa’s baseball IQ or Arod’s IQ?

    the answer to yesterday’s question-who has the bigger head, Michael Kay or Barry Bonds is a tie, they are both too big to measure using standard means…

  250. Hassey July 25th, 2013 at 4:13 pm

    whether or not we manage to pull out this game, is it safe to say Oakland looks better than Texas?

    It wouldn’t be a surprise, though.

    So let the lefty P dominate the left batter.

    AUUUUUUGH !

  254. jackamir July 25th, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    Cashman is a weak philandering dolt. He is a legend in his own mind..He is the General Manager with an owner with little on the field baseball knowledge.. I think his input has some clout within the organization.. And I am not a JOKE!!!! 60 yrs. of Yankee baseball makes me a concerned fan…

  255. ac1 July 25th, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    Romine baby.
    Thats why you need to get the runner over sooner.

  256. UpState July 25th, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    Should’ve bunted Adams to 3rd, dammit !

  257. Shame Spencer July 25th, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    Romine showing some life..

  258. ac1 July 25th, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    Maybe joe will finally play romine two days in a row?

  259. Hassey July 25th, 2013 at 4:17 pm

    Trade Romine for King Felix!

  260. MG July 25th, 2013 at 4:18 pm

    if the Yankees do get 30% of Arod’s whole salary for this year if he doesn’t play until August 1st then that explains the Yankees anger at him through the whole rehab process.

    At the same time, it sends the wrong message to the fans and to the players on the team, that we are going to put money ahead of winning.

    This will be very bad PR for the Yankees if it is true because you know it will get reported.

  261. Hassey July 25th, 2013 at 4:18 pm

    As John Stewart once said,

    the Yankee lineup is where boners go to die

  262. cofuzz July 25th, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    Don’t look now, but Romine is 7 for his last 24 with 4 doubles in there.
    I agree…maybe Girardi will play him two days in a row.

  263. blake July 25th, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    “I know our offense is bad but what’s the Rangers’ excuse?”

    Kuroda is good

  264. MG July 25th, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    Romine has hit the ball hard each time up today, that is encouraging.

    And the throw to 2nd on the stolen base attempt was 1st rate.

    I am willing to be wrong in my evaluation of him if it helps the team

  265. joecembrale July 25th, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    Disagree with Kuroda going back out.

  266. cofuzz July 25th, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    P.S. Math tells me 7-24 is .292.
    It also tells me his OBP is .320 in that time and his SLG is .458 for an OPS of .778.

    Not too shabby.

  267. Wave Your Hat July 25th, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    “I do wonder why this hasn’t been mentioned much.”

    I thought I saw that the insurance policy has a four month deductible, which would mean the Yanks are on the hook for 100% of salary through August 1.

  268. cofuzz July 25th, 2013 at 4:23 pm

    Kuroda was at 92 pitches after 6.
    Even in the hot Texas sun, I think he has another inning, no?

  269. blake July 25th, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    keithlaw ?@keithlaw 4m
    Agreed. Need to do this. RT @mikeaxisa: Romine’s starting to hit a little bit. Worth it to play him some more just to see what happens.

    Neil (Billings)

    What does it say about the media that there seems to be more outrage over Ryan Braun than Aaron Hernandez?
    Klaw (1:16 PM)

    And more outrage over Braun than over every athlete arrested for DUI. So, yeah, it says a lot about the media.

  272. incident_57 July 25th, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    Where is there a credible source for the notion that if A-Rod doesn’t play until after Aug 1 that they get 30% of the $ back? That would be a huge story, if true, so it seems hard to believe that nobody, or virtually nobody, is talking about it.

  273. Shame Spencer July 25th, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    @craigcalcaterra No other sports league has reached out to Bosch and Fischer, Fischer says. But BioG had clients from NBA, etc. http://espn.go.com/espn/otl/st.....estigation

    Best pitch Cano has seen all day.

  275. Shame Spencer July 25th, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    We’re not going over here, right..?? :arrow:

    I forget the rules when Chad messes with our flow like this…

  276. Hassey July 25th, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    we have 8 hits now?

  277. DONNYBROOK July 25th, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    I’m stickin’ here.

  278. ahrmonn July 25th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    9 hits, 5 doubles, 1 run. That some harsh math right there.

  279. exiledintampa July 25th, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    Holland was easy pickings today. We should be up by 5 by now.

  280. DONNYBROOK July 25th, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    That’s another good reason that Nunez should be batting behind Cano. SPEED

  281. DONNYBROOK July 25th, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    Nothing wrong with pushing the action with 2 Outs and Adams at bat.

  282. exiledintampa July 25th, 2013 at 4:37 pm

    Kuroda was brilliant today. I hope the bullpen holds up.

  283. DONNYBROOK July 25th, 2013 at 4:39 pm

    If Mo is needed for 4 Outs, you do it.

  284. mick July 25th, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    Now that its moot and alex not coming back before Aug 1, why not just let Nunez stay at SS and DH Jeter? maybe a game there Sunday…then 1 in LA.
    Nunez has to stay in lineup.
    Romine emerging…

  285. DONNYBROOK July 25th, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    Cooler conditions, I believe Girardi woulda gone longer with Kuroda.

  286. DONNYBROOK July 25th, 2013 at 4:41 pm

    I keep sayin’ Nunez should bat behind Cano.

  287. hardwired7 July 25th, 2013 at 4:59 pm

    Mariano should have worn those cowboy boots and hat to the mound. That would have been epic.

  288. Howler July 25th, 2013 at 5:05 pm

    Nice win today…glad I was able to catch last couple innings…Romine is starting to look a lot better.
