    I wonder if Cliff Lee could influence CC on how to pitch with lower velocity as a lefty in YS. It’s a horrible contract but there are no big name FA pitchers out there. If you combine Pettitte and Kuroda’s salaries you could theoretically pay for Lee and he won’t cost much in prospects.

    An interesting off season would be Lee + Granderson.

    It seems the offense can function with cheap additions like Soriano.

  2. El Yanki August 31st, 2013 at 10:16 am

    Romine should catch most games!! Girardi falters in situations like this..Let’s do it Yankees

  3. exiledintampa August 31st, 2013 at 10:16 am

    Two threads with Reynolds. Yet Cleveland dropped him and went out and got Kubel. Wonder who will do more down the stretch.

  4. Jesus Bustero August 31st, 2013 at 10:16 am

    2014 35 Philadelphia Phillies $25,000,000
    2015 36 Philadelphia Phillies $25,000,000
    2016 37 Philadelphia Phillies *$27,500,000

    I guess the Yankees can spend a bunch of money on multiple hitters and go with something similar to their current rotation or they can ignore the offense altogether aside from a Soriano type move and concentrate all their resources into one big pitcher.

    Since I don’t think Cashman’s capable of reloading on offense for the future, and since the owners already paid for 2 huge bats in Tex and Arod, I can see them pushing Cashman to acquire Lee at the winter meetings.

  5. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 10:17 am

    Buster-

    Who are 3b and starting C next season ?

  6. Jesus Bustero August 31st, 2013 at 10:18 am

    They seem to favor that efficient strike – that one big move over a series of creative solutions involving multiple solid additions. It’s a no-brainer type front office that fills in the gaps with dumpster diving. I can really see Lee.

  7. Jesus Bustero August 31st, 2013 at 10:20 am

    MTU,

    Reynolds and Romine/Cervelli.

    Ownership may feel with a staff led by CC and Lee they can get by with a few holes in the lineup. Michael Young is also a free agent.

    The other route is to trade for a bat and sign Choo and McCann. I don’t see this front office coordinating multiple moves on multiple fronts.

    It’s the big bang theory of business and I’m sticking to it.

  8. The Genius Maker August 31st, 2013 at 10:20 am

    Great to see some playoff atmosphere in the Bronx…Here was my take on last night’s game

    http://stevewigdor.blogspot.com/

  9. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 10:23 am

    Buster-

    I think we need a 3b for the future and a really good starting C.

    In addition we a smashmouth left-handed hitting DH (Morales ?).

    Would love McCann.

    Not sure who we can steal to be our 3b.

  10. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 10:24 am

    Here’s a real oldie :

    “One, two, three, look at Mr. Lee
    Three, four, five, look at him jive
    Mr. Lee, Mr. Lee
    Oh, Mr. Lee
    Mr. Lee, Mr. Lee
    Oh, Mr. Lee
    Mr. Lee”

    :)

  11. Jesus Bustero August 31st, 2013 at 10:26 am

    MTU,

    I prefer your route. There’s no question. Trade for someone like Headley. Sign McCann. Sign Choo.

    But this front office seems to like to take a direct route and they can’t chew gum and walk at the same time.

    So they will do what’s familiar when they invest.

    Granderson is a known commodity.

    So is Lee.

    My prediction for the offseason is Lee + Grandy. The rest will be filled with guys like Reynolds, Young, Soriano and Cervelli or Romine.

  12. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 10:27 am

    Buster-

    I hope you are wrong.

    No offense meant.

    ;)

  13. exiledintampa August 31st, 2013 at 10:28 am

    Maker- That article has Alex to blame for Soriano’s out at home. I saw it that way too but the third base coach looked like he didn’t know the bunt was coming either

  14. raymagnetic August 31st, 2013 at 10:28 am

    They aren’t trading for Lee. That ship has sailed.

  15. jmills August 31st, 2013 at 10:29 am

    Genius Maker, good work. There’s a gentleman up here who heads a Maple Leafs blog. His name is Michael Langlois and his site is called – Vintage Leaf memmories. Mr. Langlois is a great story teller and the people who come on to post are very respectable. He’s an older individual, but then again you’d have to be, as there haven’t been any vintage Leaf memories since ’67. :)

  16. Madrugador August 31st, 2013 at 10:30 am

    MTU
    Country Joe and the Fish?

  17. Jesus Bustero August 31st, 2013 at 10:31 am

    The preferred route requires too many variables so they can’t account for all of them and construct/implement a reliable plan. What is the asking price for Headley? What if he resigns? What if he’s a fluke? And for Choo… What if he wants too much money? What if he won’t sign? What if he starts drinking again? And McCann… what if Atlanta signs him? What if he is too injury prone? How can we coordinate all these moves and get all these guys to fill all these holes all while spending big time dollars on too many risks?

    With Lee and Granderson there are fewer questions.

    We know Granderson will sign.

    We know he fits in.

    We know he can be healthy if he doesn’t get hit by a pitch.

    Lee is a known commodity as well.

    He stays healthy.

  18. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 10:32 am

    Mag-

    Early Diana Ross. The “Bobettes”.

    :)

  19. Madrugador August 31st, 2013 at 10:33 am

    I know it is a day game after a night game but Romine is young and this is playoff baseball. Joe ought to play him instead of Stewie. Besides, Stewie has played more than he ever has, the extra rest would do him good.

  20. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 10:36 am

    Buster-

    as Dylan said, The Yankees need to change their way of thinking.

    ;)

  21. Jesus Bustero August 31st, 2013 at 10:36 am

    Nova is prone to walks and maybe Joe feels Stewie controls the running game better. But Romine is getting enough playing time to make the team in 2014. If Cervelli can come back then Stewart will be gone. Especially if Murphy can improve in AAA next year.

  22. Jesus Bustero August 31st, 2013 at 10:37 am

    MTU,

    Well I just think when they spend money, they like to have as few questions as possible. The more players/personalities you bring in, the more variables you introduce, the less they are willing to part with it.

    It’s the big bang theory.

    Giambi
    Arod
    Tex
    CC

    They’ve already made an attempt at Lee.

  23. CountryClub August 31st, 2013 at 10:38 am

    Win the next 2 and the yanks will be, at worst, 4 out with 26 to play. If Tampa or Oakland win the next 2 vs each other, instead of splitting, yanks would be 3 out.

  24. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 10:40 am

    I don’t see Cervelli back in Stripes.

    I see him gone.

    He screwed the pooch when he took what he took.

    I don’t see the Yankees wanting anything to do with that kind of controversy after what A-Rod has put them thru.

    If they weren’t concerned about it they might have signed Melky on the cheap.

    obviously they were.

  25. Jesus Bustero August 31st, 2013 at 10:42 am

    They could sign Dioner Navarro.

  26. yanks61 August 31st, 2013 at 10:42 am

    86 and RIB, just dropping in again briefly and wanted to say thanks for your comments. You two are always a very intelligent and interesting read.

    Bret, you always have some interesting comments too. It’s always fun reading what you have to say. As I mentioned on an earlier thread, one way or another, its’ going to be quite a winter.

  27. Madrugador August 31st, 2013 at 10:42 am

    I too thought Nova’s walks were up but his stats are nearly identical to his 2011 stats. Walks about 3.5/9 innings with a WHIP of 1.34.

  28. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 10:43 am

    I hear Buster but as I said above I want them to change their way of thinking.

    New conditions call for new solutions.

    ;)

  29. Jesus Bustero August 31st, 2013 at 10:43 am

    .298 .366 .503 .869

  30. Jesus Bustero August 31st, 2013 at 10:44 am

    Navarro could potentially outhit McCann at a much cheaper price. He is 29.

  31. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 10:45 am

    I still do not consider Nova reliable enough.

    He needs to demonstrate that he can be this kind of pitcher for more than 1/2 of a season.

    Will the “real” Ivan Nova please stand up ?

    ;)

  32. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 10:49 am

    I just want a significant upgrade as our starting C.

    Don’t really care who it is along as it is.

    I think Romine can be the BUC or possibly Murphy.

    Sanchez is likely the Catcher of the future.

    At 3b we are barren except for maybe Jagielo IF he pans out ?

    Don’t want to try to hold the fort with Adams and/or Musty.

    We need a for real young 3b.

    And we’ll need him staring next year.

    ;)

  33. Abe Peterham August 31st, 2013 at 10:50 am

    One game playoff tomorrow… Who would yanks pitch ??

  34. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 10:51 am

    Clayton Kershaw.

    :)

  35. Jesus Bustero August 31st, 2013 at 10:52 am

    The drafting of Jagielo indicates they probably won’t forfeit a ton of resources for a long term solution at 3B. As far as catcher goes, I think they’d be OK with Navarro for a couple years paired with Romine/Murphy until Sanchez is ready. I could see them going with Chavez types like Reynolds and Young at 3B. I don’t see any young 3B out there they would be willing to spend resources on.

    Maker- That article has Alex to blame for Soriano’s out at home. I saw it that way too but the third base coach looked like he didn’t know the bunt was coming either
    ///

    Hey exiled, give the Rays a kick in the butt will you? I was counting that Price start to go in our favor last night.

    Have to disagree, 2 outs, Alex was going on contact and Sori would have likely scored if he hadn’t paused. Worked out anyway, as we won the game.
    ///

    Betances did not finish up the game last night in Lehigh Valley, after having gotten the last two outs in the seventh and pitching the eighth. I would guess that’s because they think they may need him tomorrow in the Bronx, and therefore he did not pitch the final 3 innings, as they’ve had him do recently. (Betances 1H, 0R, 0ER, 0BB, 4K) He relieved Whitley, who has been a kind of Alex Cobb type in the rotation and very good.

    Betances will be up with the first wave of callups, I expect.

  37. El Yanki August 31st, 2013 at 10:54 am

    Reynolds and Alex will play 3B next year(Arod will get 50games susp)..Macann and Romine the catchers

    You dance with who brung you. Kuroda on a short leash and rely on the bullpen. That’s our real strength.

  39. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 10:55 am

    Buster-

    Jagielo is just a lottery ticket at this point.

    That’s too bad if you’re right.

    Reynolds and Young are not good solutions at 3rd base IMO.

    They are both just more patches on a worn out tire.

    Had enough of those to last me a lifetime this season.

  40. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 10:57 am

    A-Rod will never get just a 50 game suspension.

    The minimum will be 100 games IMO.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s gone for the whole of next year.

  41. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 10:59 am

    As we speak the Yankees are rumored to be working on potential ways to void the remainder of A-rod’s contract.

    ;)

  43. mick August 31st, 2013 at 11:00 am

    Glad to see Girardi took my advice and flip flopped Hughes and Andy.
    Will be interesting to see if Romine catches Andy tomorrow…he has become a beast at the plate.

  44. Jesus Bustero August 31st, 2013 at 11:00 am

    MTU,

    Well with the budget tight and farm thin, I can give them a pass if there’s one position where they are a little weak. Also consider they have nearly 30 M per year already allocated to that position. As far as catcher goes, they have a line of prospects – Romine – Murphy – Sanchez. I don’t see them spending big on a McCann. Navarro, yes. So now that we’ve parsed down those 2 positions, you have to turn attention to the pitching. That’s why maybe Lee makes sense to them. Can’t say I agree at all but I will excuse them for their situation at 3B. Shortstop has Jeter and Nunez. The outfield just added Soriano. Pitching pitching pitching will be the mantra repeated at the winter meetings. We will see the Yankees passing on all these guys and we will wonder why with so many holes to fill they continue to rely on patchwork. After they missed out on Lee they declared “the plan is patience” It would be fitting if they wait out the Phillies and get him at a partial discount for a handful of lottery tickets.

  45. exiledintampa August 31st, 2013 at 11:01 am

    Hi, JAP I guess I mistated my point. It wasn’t Alex but Thomson i was upset with last night. The base running in general. I posted several times about it. Are they not listening to him? Why so many outs at third and home? you can’t afford to run yourself out of innings and keep pace. This in the kind of base running that will run you out of wins in a closer game.

  46. mick August 31st, 2013 at 11:01 am

    One game playoff tomorrow… Who would yanks pitch ??
    =================
    That day is today and it’s Nova.

  47. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 11:03 am

    Buster-

    You may be right but I’m not on board with that way of approaching it.

    I’ll leave it at that.

    ;)

  48. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 11:04 am

    Mick-

    They did indeed. I was thinking of you when they made the move.

  49. mick August 31st, 2013 at 11:05 am

    On why Soriano botched up on that Grandy bunt last night:

    Did anybody notice Arod standing on 3rd?

    Guess Sori had nowhere to go…

  50. GregD August 31st, 2013 at 11:06 am

    It was Reynolds who made the choice to run to third……..he is only out on a perfect throw…….Girardi calls the contact play….you can’t decide that on a coaches call…..and Soriano had the play in front of him……I’m not sure Thomson gets all the blame…..

  51. mick August 31st, 2013 at 11:07 am

    They did indeed. I was thinking of you when they made the move.
    ===================
    Seemed like a no brainer.
    Even if Randy disagreed.
    Oh wait…

  52. mick August 31st, 2013 at 11:08 am

    and Soriano had the play in front of him……I’m not sure Thomson gets all the blame…..
    =========================
    Did you see Alex running to 3B?
    Sori had no place to go.

  53. GregD August 31st, 2013 at 11:09 am

    Did they have the contact play on when Granderson bunted?

  54. trisha - true pinstriped blue August 31st, 2013 at 11:09 am

    “Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind.”

    I couldn’t have stated it better.

    MG – read the above and you might better understand my sticking by CR. In any event, I’ve spoken my peace and intend to stick by the TOS. That includes not using abusive or defamatory language about any other poster. I would think that would also include calling another poster phony or questioning their truthfulness.

    Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.

    I think the creators of the Lohud TOS had that in mind when they framed their TOS.

  55. GregD August 31st, 2013 at 11:10 am

    Did they have the contact play on when Granderson bunted?
    ===============
    Grandy bunted on his own.
    Sori didn’t know or go and looked back at 3rd and Alex was standing on it.

    ///

    Thomson I guess has an itchy trigger finger; maybe he’s on automatic pilot since we have had nearly historic problems scoring runs all year until Alex came back and Sori was dealt for.

    I do think Sori has a good chance of scoring if he had not hesitated. Alex, as I’m sure you of all people realize (watching him grow up), has always been a very smart base runner and has a 360-degree awareness on the basepaths.

    Today the Vato gives us length and we win in a more comfortable fashion! Knock wood :D

  59. GregD August 31st, 2013 at 11:17 am

    Mick—-but if the contact play was on….Sori should have run, regardless of whether Sori bunted on his own

    If the contact play is on?
    There were 2 out, it’s always on.
    The bunt came out of nowhere and would have loaded the bases.
    A crazy move, Girardi denied giving.
    Grandy had 2 men in scoring position and should have been swinging altho Reynolds on deck was scorching.
    He might have thought they were pitching around him so he bunted for the hit and see what happens.
    Alex is the one who screwed up.

  67. GregD August 31st, 2013 at 11:23 am

    Mick….I hear you…..I just think Sori should have been running but if Alex holds up the bases are loaded…..

  68. El Yanki August 31st, 2013 at 11:23 am

    MLB’s Selig Witch hunt on Alex will backfire..he’ll get 65 games ( a la Braun)tops…and Yankees will have to pay him big $$ to get rid of him,voiding the contract is out of the equation,management will lose millions in court

  74. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 11:31 am

    Yanki-

    Feast your eyes on this Amigo :

    “The MLBPA has fought hard to secure and maintain guaranteed contracts across the board for its players. At the same time, teams are looking to reduce their risk in deals and some have taken to adding guarantee language to contracts, which could theoretically void the contract if a player is in violation of conditions in the clause. It’s an issue that has yet to blow up, but it was of enough concern to the MLBPA that they discussed it at length in a New York City summit last year, sources tell Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports.

    At the time, the Cubs, Yankees, and Nationals were among the teams that were putting additional language into their contracts to help protect them against certain off-the-field occurrences. That doesn’t sit well with the union as they would argue that punishment for harmful behaviors is already covered under the collective bargaining agreement. Ultimately, the union was worried that teams could look to 86 contracts over things like PED use and misrepresentation of age. While this hasn’t really been an issue yet, sources assure Passan that the Yankees have discussed turning to guarantee language to go after Alex Rodriguez.”

    You don’t think the Yankees want A-rod gone ?

    You think MLB doesn’t have significant goods on Alex ?

    He is going to get a more significant punishment than Braun IMO.

    He is being made an example for sure but he left himself open to it.

    If he doesn’t MLB in particular is going to look like a complete bunch of fools.

    (Which maybe they are ?).

  75. mick August 31st, 2013 at 11:31 am

    Do you think Sori changes his mind and runs like he did if Alex weren’t standing on 3rd?

    Axel-

    Thank you.

    My sentiments exactly.

    :)

    Nova’s walk and hit totals have been up from earlier this season. I too would like to see more control from him. An easy win would be nice today. I am not in the mood for college football just yet.
    A great day to all.

    MG – you’re probably not the only one who ignores everything I write. :)

    Not a problem.

    People here are screaming for civility. One way to do it is to ignore posts/posters that set you off.

    Mature adults have the ability to discuss without personally berating. And Lohud’s TOS says that they’ll do that whether they like it or not. They’re the keeper of the press. They make the rules.

    I don’t want to play blog cop. Thankfully it appears that enough posters want a peaceful and civil forum that they will start self-policing. If things get out of hand, Chad will be helpful. Hopefully it doesn’t get to that level anymore.

    Have a great day.

    :)

    The play didn’t affect the outcome, but here’s Soriano’s thoughts on it:

    About the only time Soriano didn’t seem ready against the O’s was in the seventh, after he reached third on a double steal with two out. Curtis Granderson bunted against an over-shifted defense. Soriano stopped breaking for the plate and held his ground while Alex Rodriguez advanced from second. Soriano was thrown out easily at home.

    “It surprised everybody,” Soriano said. “I started to go but my mind said stay so I got caught in-between. Next time I have to be more ready on that play.”

    MTU – We definitely don’t want him BB’ing 6 today but I like to focus on the amount of groundballs he’s been able to generate (the way he used to work) and that K-curve. He’s on the upswing, I don’t worry about him too much.

    I’m heading out. Go YANKS and here’s hoping Tampa can best Oakland; they have major incentive to catch Boston.

    People here are screaming for civility.
    ===================
    Not buying that.
    When they can’t even comment on baseball stuff they disagree with, it’s more than civility.
    It’s disagreement combined with condescension.
    That is being uncivil…

  84. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 11:45 am

    JAP-

    Yes. But I don’t want to see him constantly living on the edge having to rely on those tools too much.

    The best way to avoid jams is to stay out of them in the 1st place.

    Have a great day.

    :)

    It only appears this way as the dissident factor has stayed away.
    They will be back and havoc will return.
    But they are only good in bunches…sort of like Honey Nut bunches of oats.

  86. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 11:51 am

    How is it I am able to talk with all sorts of people without it generally resulting in acrimony ?

    Could it be that I treat everyone with respect and hope they are respectful in return even when we disagree ?

    Treat others as you yourself wish to be treated.

    It’s simple. Or it should be.

    ;)

    Most people here do just that but there are always 1 or 2 that spoil it for others.

  88. GregD August 31st, 2013 at 11:54 am

    Mick……no he had no choice, ARod forced him to run even when he was sure to be out…..didn’t hear Kay mention it

  89. mick August 31st, 2013 at 11:55 am

    some people just radi(h)ate it…it’s personality driven (or lack of it).

    Post of the day Mick…. :)

  91. Captain Clutch August 31st, 2013 at 11:56 am

    Yay Stewie is in the lineup!! Can’t wait for another classic performance, 0-4 with 2 or more passed balls.

    Romine is young and hasn’t caught a lot this year he should be out there again today. But of course Girardi has to have the manager’s pet in there.

  92. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 11:58 am

    Mick-

    Then my suggestion, difficult as it may be, would be to try to ignore them.

    Enjoy the people you enjoy and disregard the rest.

    *************************
    GregD,

    There is no forcing a runner to move on a play like that. Since 1st base was not occupied, Arod could have stayed on 2nd and Sori could have stayed on 3rd without running. Had Sori and Arod had both occupied 3rd at the same time, Arod would have been the one to be called out and not Sori.

    LEWISTON, MaineThe Farmers’ Almanac is using words like “piercing cold,” “bitterly cold” and “biting cold” to describe the upcoming winter. And if its predictions are right, the first outdoor Super Bowl in years will be a messy “Storm Bowl.”

    The 197-year-old publication that hits newsstands Monday predicts a winter storm will hit the Northeast around the time the Super Bowl is played at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands in New Jersey. It also predicts a colder-than-normal winter for two-thirds of the country and heavy snowfall in the Midwest, Great Lakes and New England.

    “We’re using a very strong four-letter word to describe this winter, which is C-O-L-D. It’s going to be very cold,” said Sandi Duncan, managing editor.

  96. randy l. August 31st, 2013 at 12:32 pm

    the majority of the posters on the blog supported a pitching wins philosophy and backed and still back cashman and ownership. hal’s plan was and is a big fail. he’s wrong . his supporters are wrong.

    the yankees won last night because of offense. arod , soriano, a healthy granderson who’s already been told he’s gone if he wants any money, and cano give an offensive core that has changed the team.

    this change was not designed in by a united management. therefore it has a little edge to it. it’s going against the “PLAN”.

    this team actually could sneak in the back door and run the table.
    we’ll see.

  97. El Yanki August 31st, 2013 at 12:38 pm

    MTU,thanks for the info. Will see what happens..just hope we have a winning team in 2014
