    That seals it.
    Overbay will get a big hit today.

    See you in the game threads!

    Hmm. Girardi didn’t sound or look very good in last night’s postgame. Hope most of the players are able to avoid being infected.

    We’ve had enough of bugs in the injury category; don’t want to start with the flu variety.

  4. Poetkiosk August 31st, 2013 at 12:27 pm

    Arod has the flu? Wow. Is that for real or does just need a break?

  5. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 12:32 pm

    A-Rod won’t be missed for a day or 2.

    Reynolds has more range and is hot.

    Overbay is an excellent 1b and is overdue for a breakout.

    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.

    i say skip CC for a start if for no other reason than to change things up.

  7. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 12:39 pm


    I must be the ultimate contradiction then because I support the idea of having good pitching but I do not support Hal or Cashman at this point.

    I do think you need a decent offense though.

    Can’t win 2-1 games every night.

    “I love hitting here. It’s a great backdrop, a great batter’s box,” Reynolds said. “Just putting on the pinstripes is a different feel. A lot of the guys (on Baltimore) told me it makes me look slimmer, too.”

    Good afternoon already,

    About last night’s game… CC mechanics looked much better than the end result… He will have to learn to live with lesser stuff, like Mussina did… it will take him a while to adjust,a 92 MPH FB is still plenty good for a lefty.

    I would say that the highlights of the game were the very good at bats the lineup had in the game… Cano and Gardner had two very gutsy at bats with great results in that big rally inning… Romine hit a great oppo double and Soriano had a very patient at bat plus a homer ( just lost it on the last pitch )… And of course Reynolds and Ichiro.. The lineup seems to be alive again…

  10. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 12:42 pm


    It’s alive when they face Pitchers who haven’t started in 10 days and aren’t sharp.

  11. luis August 31st, 2013 at 12:46 pm


    Perhaps you are right…But I liked what I saw last night… Patient and good at bats, plenty of 3-2 counts… And lot’s of hard hit balls as well, but aimed at where the pitch was placed… Very good situationally

  12. MG August 31st, 2013 at 12:46 pm

    I don’t know why good pitching and good offense have to mutually exclusive.

    You might be able to win a WS with great pitching but you can’t with just good pitching.

    The Yankees pitching staff could be very good, but it’s not great.

    Great is reserved for the once in a generation kind of staffs (Koufax-Drysdale-whoever, Maddox-Glavine-Smoltz, Seaver-Koosman, etc) who can completely take over a game or series.

    The Yankees have never won anything with just great pitching, it’s always been the offense that separates them from everybody else.

    This has just been a very tough year with all of the injuries plus the fact that the team is aging.

    In spite of how some of you feel, I don’t think it’s possible to rebuild on the fly while continuing to compete for a championship, particularly in a changing economic environment.

    I lived in SF during the 49ers dominance-Bill Walsh was as smart a guy as you could find anywhere and would routinely cut players before their expiration date. But, as soon as the economic game changed, it was just a matter of time before they hit the skids.

  13. Captain Clutch August 31st, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    I guess Arod was out partying too hard last night. Hopefully he is better soon because we don’t need Overbay and Stewie in the same lineup.

  14. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 12:50 pm


    Maybe not rebuild but retool.

    I think they should start looking to the future next season by acquiring 1 or 2 player to fill areas of future need.

    For example 3b and possibly C.

    They could also look at a guy like Morales to give them a for real power-hitting and productive DH.

    The A-Rod windfall give them the opportunity to start. They should make use of it.

    Continue the process in 2015 when the cap comes off.


  15. luis August 31st, 2013 at 12:50 pm


    Wise words again

    About CC, I saw a post you made last night about him… His mechanics were very clean ( he was no longer drifting toward 3rd base before releasing the ball with a very balanced landing )… The problem lies in that he no longer can muster the mid to high 90′s he used to… He needs to adjust and he will, I think.

  16. Chad Jennings August 31st, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    Just an FYI: Brian Cashman just emailed me back to say Melky Mesa’s hamstring issue is too significant for a September call-up, so scratch him from the list. Mesa won’t be here tomorrow.

  17. luis August 31st, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    A rebuilding is not a choice but a necessity at this point… Or blow the budget to pieces…

  18. luis August 31st, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    Well… I am out…. Go Vato!, Go Yankees!

  19. austinmac August 31st, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    I like it when we win 10-1. Give me both please.

  20. MTU August 31st, 2013 at 12:55 pm


    I think it can be done in “stages”. It should start next season and continue in 2015.

    And by the way, don’t you ever disappear or you’ll have to answer to me.

  21. trisha - true pinstriped blue August 31st, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    “You might be able to win a WS with great pitching but you can’t with just good pitching.”

    Exactly what I said earlier. No matter what happens with the offense, if the pitching is not superlative, it’s not going to matter.

  22. luis August 31st, 2013 at 12:56 pm

    I, I Sir!!! ;)

  24. luis August 31st, 2013 at 1:00 pm


    Sorry, I didn’t read your part about the Dodgers and the Braves rotations…. That’s the only thing I might disagree with your post… How many WS did the Braves won?… One… I don’t know about the Dodgers, they probably won a few more, but there were different times… Balance wins… You can have shutout material in your rotation, but if you don’t score , you don’t win

  25. exiledintampa August 31st, 2013 at 1:00 pm

    How come no one ever says, “It’s only a game” when their team is winning?

  26. trisha - true pinstriped blue August 31st, 2013 at 1:07 pm

    “You can have shutout material in your rotation, but if you don’t score , you don’t win”

    luis, it’s like a dog chasing its tail. There’s enough offense on the Yankees to win. But excellent pitching will chill out the best offenses. Less-than-stellar pitching can allow even mediocre hitting to score.

    That is nice. I’d cure the wobble with a triangular piece of 1/2 inch plywood at each of the four rear corners. As a starting point I would make them 1 foot on the rectangular sides. Glue and screw the corner pieces to the frame everywhere they touch. That will stiffen it a lot. If you want still less wobble, use the plywood at every corner joint.
