Postgame notes: “You knew this was going to happen”

“I don’t think anybody’s got their head down. I think everybody’s giving a great effort.
We’ve just got to keep doing that, and hopefully we can figure out a way to turn this thing around.”

Andy Pettitte four weeks ago

“If we play good ball the rest of the way, we’re going to pull this thing out.”
Andy Pettitte tonight

Three and a half games out of the wild card with a little more than five weeks to play. Maybe it’s not an ideal situation, but it’s certainly not an impossible deficit, either. And after 11 wins in 14 games, the Yankees look like a team fully capable of making up that ground. About a month ago, they were looking for answers and hoping they would come. Two weeks ago, they were looking lost and in need of lowered expectations. Today, they’re heading to Tampa with reason to feel confident.

“I don’t think in our eyes it was ever unattainable,” Vernon Wells said. “Still a lot of baseball to be played. I’ve seen crazier things happen in this game. It was just a matter of us putting a run together and we’re hopefully just at the beginning of this thing, because we’re going to have to win our share of games going down the stretch.”

Up next is Tampa Bay, and that’s a challenge, but… “I like the way we’re going in there this time,” Wells said.

A few numbers worth noting: The Yankees have come from behind in their past five wins. They’re 12-1 against the Blue Jays this season, and play them six more times. Since being swept in Chicago earlier this month, the Yankees have won four straight series, two of them against first-place teams. In that time, they’ve gone 7-1 against non-first-place teams.

“We’re making up ground, and that’s what we need to continue to do,” Joe Girardi said. “We need to continue to win series like we’ve been doing, and continue to pitch well and swing the bats. Obviously each day you’re able to pick up a little ground it seems more attainable, and that’s good for the guys in that room. … When you’re winning, there’s always a different vibe. There is a different vibe because we’re playing well and winning. We had a really good vibe in the beginning of the season as well, but we went through some tough times. But it’s back.”

It really is back. The Yankees clubhouse never got especially down during the bad times, but there does seem to be a different sort of swagger in that room these days.

“You knew this was going to happen,” Pettitte said. “It was just a matter of when, and you just hope it’s not too late. And it’s not too late.”

Derek Jeter• A quick update from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre where Derek Jeter played five innings in the field and went 2-for-3 at the plate. He doubled in his first at-bat and had a two-out RBI single in his third at-bat. Both Girardi and Jeter said he’ll play at least one more Triple-A game. Jeter will not be with the Yankees tomorrow.

• Here in New York, Pettitte had a ton of base runners — what’s new? — but allowed one run through six innings. It’s his second consecutive win. “I wasn’t as good as I was my last start in Boston as far as all my pitches, but for the most part I was able to locate both sides,” he said.

• It’s easy to look back at the two ugly starts against Chicago and Detroit — the two earlier this month — and think Pettitte has moved on from those disappointments to pitch more like in his last two starts in July, when he allowed two runs each time. But Pettitte said it’s actually the opposite. “I felt like I threw the ball OK against Texas and LA and had good starts, and I felt like I threw the ball real well as far as where I wanted to throw pitches against Chicago and the Tigers, and had horrible starts,” he said. “So those were the starts I was building on, to tell you the truth. I know that’s crazy, but that’s how this season has been.”

• Pettitte has allowed no more than one earned run in each of his past three starts.

• Both Pettitte and Girardi said the difference has been mostly fastball location. Tonight, his defense helped him out with some big plays. “Andy got a lot of ground balls,” Girardi said. “Some of them were base hits, but I thought our guys played well.”

• Eduardo Nunez made a nice play on that 6-5 putout in the seventh, but it’s hard to overlook the double play that Alex Rodriguez started to get out of the bases-loaded jam in the fifth. “Just smoked right down the line,” Rodriguez said. “Just put my glove down. That ball caught me almost, stepped on the bag and was able to throw to first. That was a big play.”

• Rodriguez also stole a base today and seemed to be moving better after getting the day off yesterday. “I definitely felt better today,” he said. “My body felt pretty good. I thought I moved around well today.”

Alfonso Marquez, Munenoria Kawasaki, Ichiro Suzuki• A lot of confusion on that go-ahead play in the fifth inning. It was Wells who hit the ball. “I couldn’t tell (whether he caught it),” Wells said. “I was just looking for an answer and didn’t really find one. … It looked like he caught it from the replay. That’s what I gathered, but it didn’t really matter at that point.”

• Chris Stewart thought the ball fell, but he turned and went back to second when he saw Eduardo Nunez tag up. “I was sprinting in,” he said. “I thought the ball was getting down. Apparently he got a lot closer. I didn’t think he was even going to get close to it. … I don’t think anyone really had a good view of it.”

• Crew chief Ted Barrett on the play: “We looked at the replay and it look to us like it bounced, but probably inside his glove. So on replay, probably would have been ruled a catch.”

• Dave Robertson said he really felt no different coming to the park today knowing he was the closer. Just another day when he’s planning to pitch a key late inning. He got his second save with a perfect ninth.

• Curtis Granderson’s home run against J.A. Happ was his first homer against a lefty this season. According to the Yankees, he still leads the Majors with 31 home runs against left-handers since the start of 2011.

• This game started with a rain delay of more than three and a half hours. “Sure enough, it was worth the wait,” Granderson said.

• Final word goes to Wells: “We’re putting ourselves in positions where we’re giving ourselves a chance each and every night to win games, whether we’re playing their best pitcher or whatever it may be. … When you have all three phases of the game going the way they’re supposed to – pitching, defense, and putting some runs on the board now on a consistent basis – we’re going to win our share of games.”

    You said it Vernon.

    That will be put to the test the next 3 days.

    Have a good evening.

    While I am no fan of Braun, at least he ended his denial today with his statement that he cheated everyone including his family, close friends, and himself. You lie enough you eventually begin to think it’s the truth. Something Alex will never do as he just keeps playing the big lie day after day.

    Hopefully after this year we will never see him again one way or another in a Yankee uniform.

    Hello MTU, I’m having a new boat built. Hope to be catching some of those big Dorado’s

    Greetings Gary.

    Glad to see some of us are doing well.

    Time for me to dream some big Yankee dreams.

    Good seeing you round.

    And to think The LA Dodgers are going this without Beckett and Billingsley who would be the club’s 4th & 5th starters. Wilson is back ( longer and darker beard ) to add to their pen. A very good ballclub Donnie Baseball has on his hands

    “And to think The LA Dodgers are going this without Beckett and Billingsley who would be the club’s 4th & 5th starters. ”

    Dangerous ball club in a playoff series when you consider the star power in that offense and having Kershaw and Greinke who could start 4 of 7 games

  11. blake August 22nd, 2013 at 11:13 pm

    Gary,
    Braun at least finally owned it even if it was in a prepared statement that his attorney or some PR guy could have written for him……good to see you around

  12. tucker August 22nd, 2013 at 11:15 pm

    The question is what kind of player will Braun be without the juice …

    Braun got caught, lied, and got off.

    Braun got really caught and fessed up.

    Arod got caught and fessed up.

    Arod got caught, and obviously can’t say anything until after the arbitration hearing.

    I don’t understand why people see Arod as worse than Braun.

    HankFLA, don’t know if you saw my posting:
    Hey Hank, I saw you wrote about Marius Russo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marius_Russo) last night. He had a shop in Hicksville. I bought my first glove there. It was a McGregor Willie Mays mitt.

    I am glad that someone remembers Marius Russo as his career was cut short by injury. He was a crafty left handed pitcher and was a perfect pitcher for Yankee Stadium. I thought Russo would take over from Lefty Gomez as the dominant southpaw, but after his injury, the Yankees replaced him with Eddie Lopat who they got from the White Sox who held down the left handed spot until
    The great Whitey Ford appeared on the scene.

    If we can win this series, we really would have a chance to win the division. I would be so happy if it happens and the best thing would be to read and listen to everyone who said it couldn’t happen.
    Lupica will write football the punk.
    Bill Madden will head back to his favorite bar to whine about when was the last time we developed a pitcher. And on and on.
    The Yanks would have one of the greatest triumphs in the history of the team.
    It can happen.
    Believe it and it will happen!!

  18. Barry August 23rd, 2013 at 12:51 am

    The Division is in play.

  19. Barry August 23rd, 2013 at 1:21 am

    PED’s clearly don’t turn mediocre players into Hall of Fame candidates but theyy push people ahead — mediocrity that gets a crack at the big time. Good players becoming just “that” much stronger and therefore “better.” These guys also become injury prone — at least more so than normal wear and tear would create. So, pick a point, possibly ten percent better/stronger. The ball flies that much further. And the results are all around you. Records fall and hip replacements become commonplace.

  20. theREALkevin August 23rd, 2013 at 2:59 am

    Braun deserves zero credit, the only reason he offered up that weak apology is because he got caught. If he would’ve never gotten caught, he’d take everything to his grave. And he didn’t even apologize fully, said it was because of an injury and probably further lied about how long he used.

  21. blake August 23rd, 2013 at 7:08 am

    Wait so Ben affleck is gonna play Batman in the next movie? Haven’t we already tried and failed with him as a superhero? Terrible choice

  22. Doreen August 23rd, 2013 at 7:09 am

    Good morning all.

    Really happy about sweeping Toronto. I was amazed when ARod stole second base. He is playing like a man possessed. Regardless of everything else, you cannot help but be impressed. Even the Star Ledger’s Dave D’Alessandro, who is – ahem – no fan of ARod, and who, just days ago, wrote off the entire team and it’s chances, has come around. Alluding to quotes from Pettitte and other team members that they knew they could do this, D’Alessandro ends his column with this: “Suddenly, we don’t roll our eyes at thus stuff anymore. An interesting, balanced and confident team has crashed the party.”

    I was afraid that by the time everyone came back from the DL, it would be too late for them to get into any kind of groove. I am amazed that Alex hit the ground running. There is depth in the lineup and they won even with Soriano cooling down for a couple of games. They didn’t miss a beat.

    The bullpen has been a little shaky, bending but not breaking, but I am confident they’ll fine.

    I’m still nervous about having to play the Rays in Tampa. That stadium is hellish. I’m hoping for realistically 2 of 3, but coming out of there with one win wouldn’t be a killer.

    As for Braun, it is interesting that he didn’t wait to be presented with the Biogenesis evidence before accepting his suspension. I am not surprised he says he started using because of an injury, that’s pretty much boilerplate.

  23. blake August 23rd, 2013 at 7:14 am

    This terrible tragedy of batman casting is way more important than Ryan Braun …..a revolt needs to happen

    From Christian Bale to Affleck…NO! Ben should stick to directing.

    Speaking of Victornio: have you guys ever watched Victorino in the dugout? I swear he’s on speed. He’s a crazy man.

  27. blake August 23rd, 2013 at 7:22 am

    There should be a rule. If you played Daredevil you can’t be batman

  28. MG August 23rd, 2013 at 7:41 am

    5 days ago the Yankees needed to go 27-13 to get to 90 wins.

    As of this morning, they need to go 22-13 to reach 90 and getting to 92 or 93 doesn’t seem like it’s impossible, does it?

    They need to win each series, that’s all that is required.

    Sweeps are to be appreciated rather than expected.

    A series win in Tampa will go a long way towards getting them in the playoffs as they never play well in the Trop…

    I’m not going to be around to watch tonight’s game, I hope it’s a blowout win but 2-1 would be OK as well…

  29. Doreen August 23rd, 2013 at 7:46 am

    Blake,

    I’m not a batman person. They could cast lady gaga as batman for all i’d care!! Lol

    I did like the TV show, though.

  30. trisha - true pinstriped blue August 23rd, 2013 at 7:52 am

    Wang IS Taiwan – always happy to see you here!

    The skeptic in me says that Arod had his team of legal beagles shut down because they realized they had mightily overstepped and Arod didn’t want all his medicals made public – despite Tacopina saying the opposite repeatedy. Tacopina either didn’t count on MLB calling his bluff or didn’t really know what was contained in the records! And Tacopina’s greatest weapon – his overexaggerating mouth – has been nullified, at least for now.

    In any event, it is truly the best thing that could have happened for the Yankees. To be allowed to play baseball without the daily circus-like distractions is certainly the least the team deserves.

    I know my thought processes are considered to be out there by some, but I am always totally honest about what I am thinking. When Sori stopped hitting for a while, I wondered if he was bothered by all the distraction. As soon as Arod shut his team down, Sori started to hit again. I know some will automatically consider this ludicrous. I also know that some others will at least consider it something to think about. And yes, I know he’s a streaky hitter. But he’s also a very sensitive player. And yes he’s a pro and used to lots of media, but remember that he’s been cuckolded by the Cubs press for the last 10 years. But no matter what, the result of the shutdown is nothing but good. That’s how it should have been the whole time.

    *************

    Doreen, I’d feel better about Arod’s contributions if I knew that the effects of steroids weren’t still part of his repertoire, but unfortunately that’s something we can’t know because we don’t know exactly what he was taking and so don’t know the build up and how long it lasts. I posted a chart the other day that said some steroids are detected in the body for as long as 18 months.

    *************

    About Braun, I’m with the group that feels he’s nothing but a phony. He’s singing like a canary (maybe a phony one telling half truths but still a canary) now, coincident with a former friend of his filing a law suit. I see it as the total hand in the cookie jar syndrome.

    **************

    Off to an appointment. No need to cheer.

  38. Wang IS Taiwan August 23rd, 2013 at 8:02 am

    Hi Trisha,

    I wondered how long it would take Arod to tell his flacks to shut the heck up! He was talking out of both sides of his mouth by saying he was all about winning and the team, and yet allowing his attorneys to stir the pot day after day. I had had ENOUGH. And if any thinks his attorneys were talking without his bidding, you are fooling yourselves.

    Finally, he showed some loyalty to his teammates by telling them to cool it. ABOUT TIME. I would have been furious if I’d been one of his teammates. I think they were remarkably silent when the circus was in full swing. There are a bunch of classy guys in that clubhouse to be sure.

    Love having the game back front and center where it belongs and the Yankee players deserve that. I like to see Arod doing well on the field, although that was the last thing I ever expected to see.

    I love this winning streak. What a difference. I’m actually checking on Yankee news, watching the standings again, etc. I feel like we finally have Yankee baseball back after a really long, horrible couple of months.

  39. pat August 23rd, 2013 at 8:03 am

    I wonder if they would wait to activate Derek until Toronto because of it being back to back series on turf in Tampa and Toronto.

    craigcalcaterra
    WADA tries to bury research that doping is more widespread than believed. Interesting. http://nyti.ms/14nP4Q4

    More than 2,000 track and field athletes participated in the study, and according to the findings, which were reviewed by The New York Times, an estimated 29 percent of the athletes at the 2011 world championships and 45 percent of the athletes at the 2011 Pan-Arab Games said in anonymous surveys that they had doped in the past year.

    By contrast, less than 2 percent of drug tests examined by WADA laboratories in 2010 were positive.

  41. Tar August 23rd, 2013 at 8:09 am

    “I was afraid that by the time everyone came back from the DL, it would be too late for them to get into any kind of groove’

    Morning D :D

    Me too. And I think I waited longer than most to say “thats it, they have no chance at this point in time.”. But who knew!!!

    As for stealing 2nd base, Alex said something during an interview recently that i thought was really cool. I think it was when he was asked if his base stealing days were over…. and his reply was “I steal with this (pointing at his head) not with my legs.”

    Very true he always has been a smart baserunner and all around baseball player.

  42. Hassey August 23rd, 2013 at 8:12 am

    Ryan Braun should play batman
    Gardner as robin
    Anna benson as catcwoman
    Cash man as penguin
    Selig as the joker

  43. Tar August 23rd, 2013 at 8:13 am

    I’m not going to get pulled into the Alex saga but….. let’s hope Cashman and Selig follow Alex’s lead and keep all this stuff out of the press, at least until the hearing.

  44. Hassey August 23rd, 2013 at 8:13 am

    Whenever Alex is finally asked a technical baseball question, his answers are more detailed and insightful than any other player

  47. Wang IS Taiwan August 23rd, 2013 at 8:16 am

    We can’t control Selig, but if Cashman or anyone in the Yankees front office starts that circus up again before season’s end, the fans should turn on them in full force.

    You can’t be backing the team’s success and simultaneously drawing the players’ attention away from doing their job.

  48. Tar August 23rd, 2013 at 8:20 am

    “You can’t be backing the team’s success and simultaneously drawing the players’ attention away from doing their job.”

    I agree, and Cash has done just that more than once this year. Lets just hope all parties involved in this mess realize the fans are done with the circus atmosphere.

    Hi Tar,

    It’s evening — 8:30pmish. We’re always 12 hours ahead of NYC.

    And yes, Cash has been anything but helpful this season. I’m so tired of his act. Would love to try someone new.

    Gotta go out and run off the Big Mac I ate tonight now. What a terrible choice, but sadly, we have no In-and-Out Burgers here to save me from the clown when the need for a burger and fries strikes…

    Hopefully, I’ll get to check in later.

    You guys have a nice Friday.

    pat,

    Also notable, the Orioles percentage has dropped from 30 to 16 in 12 days, and the A’s have dropped from 81 to 67 in 72 hours.

    “No one saw this coming no one. If he was writing or directing it fine but him playing Batman sounds so weird.”

    supposedly they offered Bale 50 million and he said no…..how crazy is that.

    Oh, and the Yankees were at 2 those same 12 days ago.

    Flip the Yankee haters the bird.

    This year we might do it with a broken arm hopping on 1 leg.

    This team has a steady heartbeat now.

    And it’s getting louder by the day.

    Time to let it drown out those cheesy cow bells.

    Too funny.

    Destiny might just be riding a pinstriped horse.

    Are the Yankees “possessed” ?

    If so, no exorcist needed in this case.
