Mild calf strain for Jeter

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Aug 04, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Derek Jeter has a Grade 1 calf strain, but Joe Girardi said he is still not sure whether Jeter will go back on the disabled list. Yankees will see how Jeter is tomorrow and make a decision.

    Arod may be many things.. but make no mistake about it, these current reports are a win for Arod and his people.

    MLB might win the war but this is a win for Team Alex and I don’t even understand how bad you need to be at this to lose to Team Alex.

  2. Shame Spencer August 4th, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    And regarding Jeter, of course they dunno if they’ll put him on the DL.. of course.

  3. MTU August 4th, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    Shame-

    It’s possible the Arbitrator might knock the penalty down further.

    No idea what we’ll get baseball-wise from Alex. His swing looked good, his arm looked fine, reaction was a little off at 3B, did not run well on bases. Biddle is a high-end prospect, but yesterday they pitched around him all day. No idea how that will translate tomorrow, but if he gives us anything, that will be more than what we’ve gotten…

    Gary Sanchez guns down a runner with nice throw to 2B side of bag….

    Who could have ever seen this old, broken down Yankee team tanking?… Just shocking huh?… Good thing we weren’t sellers at the TD! (lol)

  6. tucker August 4th, 2013 at 7:35 pm

    This is much worse than 2008. The core is much older, suspensions looming, checkbook ownership and no real youth on the horizon …

  7. Russell Munson August 4th, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    Wah. A-Rod is the devil. Wah.

    It’s going to be at least 2-3 more years before the Yankees will likely be a top contenders again… Hal deserves it.

    The 9th place Yankees…now the Royals are percentage points ahead in the American League!

  10. TrueYankee August 4th, 2013 at 7:38 pm

    I can see Jeter taking a couple days off (maybe the entire White Sox series), but come back atleaat to DH when we start the home stand. We can’t afford to DL him.

  11. Tar August 4th, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    “Arod may be many things.. but make no mistake about it, these current reports are a win for Arod and his people.”

    This particular issue is about MLB not wanting to have the Union be on Alex’s side.

    Because MLB knows the union would have fought tooth and nail over MLB trying an end around on the drug agreement.

  12. J. Alfred Prufrock August 4th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    Girardi has been hilariously blunt with reporters asking the Alex questions.

  13. Doreen August 4th, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    What’s he saying, JAP?

    I’m not in control of the tv right now. Lol

  14. comet August 4th, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    Just got home. I see Hughes was bad in a pitcher’s park. Is anyone surprised? A decent pitching coach would have taught Hughes how to throw a two seam fastball years ago!

  15. Madrugador August 4th, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    How long does Hughes continue to be a starter? Maybe Warren should get a shot.

  16. Doreen August 4th, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    Yeah, I don’t think this is so much about losing to team ARod, but as Tar says, keeping the union on their side.

    What’s going to happen if he shows up here…blah blah blah

    “If he’s here, I’m going to pencil him in and he’s going to play…”

    Something along those lines, but it’s his tone that is a riot: slightly incredulous, like yeah, uh, he’s gonna play.. lol

    Derek on his injuries: “It’s been a nightmare – the whole season’s been a nightmare.”

  19. Tar August 4th, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    But I should add…… while it might not be a “win” for team Alex, it sure doesn’t show forward thinking on MLB’s behalf either. The first crack in the armor?

  20. mnmboys August 4th, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    At least 2008 forced the FO to go out and get CC, Burnett and Tex to win it all in 2009. We need a similar offseason but now handicapped by $189

  21. Doreen August 4th, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    JAP, good!

    Perhaps I’ll get to see it online later.

  22. DCYankee August 4th, 2013 at 7:52 pm

    Jeter is staying away from the Arod circus.

  23. J. Alfred Prufrock August 4th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    “Shut it down for the rest of the year? Over a calf? Nah.”

  24. Russell Munson August 4th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    A-Rod should be drawn and quartered! Wah.

  25. J. Alfred Prufrock August 4th, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    “If he’s coming here, we’ll be glad to see him.”

    You have to watch Jeter interview. He’s a bit down, didn’t have his guard up, he’s weary like we are.

    Kahnle gets DP to seal the win in Trenton.

  33. Captain Clutch August 4th, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    This team isn’t going anywhere so why isn’t Romine catching everyday? Girardi has to stop with this nonsense of he doesn’t know the pitchers and whatever other excuses he has. It’s ridiculous that they are sending Stewart out there everyday over him.

  34. Doreen August 4th, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    JAP,
    I like that quote from Hughes. And Granderson’s yesterday about the voodoo doll. This is a nightmarish season in too many ways.

    To some extent, I feel like after so many good times, bad times will happen. Its just thst They’re all happening at once….

    Yeah maybe with some different decisions some of this could have been avoided, but the sheer magnitude of all of it suggests a force beyond what can be controlled. The baseball gods collecting their pound of flesh?

  35. Shame Spencer August 4th, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    IMO, no matter what the reasoning, this ends up being a win for Alex. He wanted to play if he appealed and now he can. Strategically, it was kind of a misplay by MLB.

  36. J. Alfred Prufrock August 4th, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    I have to see it to believe it, that Alex will be in uniform tomorrow.

  37. j9d August 4th, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    This is not a win for Arod. He has effectively lost any union support if MLB lets him play through appeal. Union has nothing to fight for. He gets to play a few games in a meaningless end of season for the Yankees and it just delays his suspension to 2014.

    I just can’t see him taking the field tomorrow all smiles and ready to play.

  39. JT August 4th, 2013 at 8:17 pm

    So they have a down and win 85 games. They’ll be back. They will spend what they have to. This is not 1965. This is a multi-billion dollar brand. They are not going to let the brand deteriorate.

    And the league will also help them–if necessary. Because a Yankees team among the league’s elite team is good for the league in lots of ways.

  40. Russell Munson August 4th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    It’s a win in the sense that MLB is already backing off from some of the things they were supposedly threatening to do like invoking the “best interests of the game” clause to prevent him from ever stepping on an MLB field again.

    Plus isn’t it great that Curt Schilling will be wrong if A-Rod plays tomorrow?

  41. j9d August 4th, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    RM

    That was all posturing by MLB, but always good to see Shilling
    eat his words.

  42. fantasygame101 August 4th, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    waiting for injured players and expecting them to contribute is really not good and more so if the injured player is already not on his prime. But we still do not need help so we are still ok, just ask our hands down GM of the yr.

  43. Against All Odds August 4th, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    And the league will also help them–if necessary.

    ————————————

    In what way????

  44. mick August 4th, 2013 at 8:22 pm

    It’s only a circus b/c the media makes it one.

  45. Against All Odds August 4th, 2013 at 8:22 pm

    After what happened with him and his video game company he shouldn’t be talking at all

  46. jonathan p August 4th, 2013 at 8:22 pm

    After watching brett lilli (jump off a) bridge I welcome alex back tomorrow with open arms

  47. ac1 August 4th, 2013 at 8:23 pm

    Over under on 3 hits for arod tomrrow?

  48. J. Alfred Prufrock August 4th, 2013 at 8:24 pm

    Doreen – the
    Nightmare is
    So much more than metaphor

  49. jonathan p August 4th, 2013 at 8:26 pm

    he is going to play like a man possessed. I do not think this is a bad thing for the Yankees. Now in 2014 having alex will be disasterous but for this year maybe he has the ability to carry us to a playoff spot.

    gardy
    ichiro
    cano
    arod
    Soriano
    hmmmmmm

  50. mick August 4th, 2013 at 8:26 pm

    alex gets to play a few weeks whoopee
    he’ll be lucky to play in Sept if he doesn’t get hurt before that.
    the arbiter will get him for next year anyway, which makes this more of a sham.
    he didn’t win anything.

  51. fantasygame101 August 4th, 2013 at 8:26 pm

    arod plays all yr, then get suspended next yr up to at least a portion of 2015. Better scenario for the Yankees.
